FLAX WILT DISEASES
Professor Bolley Will Extend His Investi
gations In North Dakota.
FARGO, N. D.Professor H. L Bolley
of the North Dakota Agricultural college
has been so thoroughly sustained in his
theory concerning flax wilt diseases that
the farmers and grain men are urging him
to prosecute his investigations still far
ther. He has issued a bulletin to the
farmers in which he asKs a lot of per
tinent questions regarding the conditions
under which flax was raised, as to the
number of flax crops, seed treatment, new
or old land, kind of seed, how secured, re
sults and remarks^ He will summarize
his information ariw hopes to be able to
benefit further the farmers of the.state
before it is time to put in another crop.
All those who treated the flax_seed as he
advised last spring and seeded on land
that had not been in flax for a year or
two, report from fair to good results.
Some farmers who took the precautions
he insisted upon have good crops, while
their neighbors are getting less than half
The remaining school lands in Cass
county were leased yesterday afternoon"
by the county auditor at higher figures
than have ever been received before.
Bidding was very active and the cash
leases amounted to $6,444. No school
lands are to be sold here this year, as
the land board is disposing of holdings
in the central part of the state.
Fargo college opened to-day with a
larger attendance than at any former
opening session. Field Secretary Shaw
was especially active during the summ er
vacation and was very successful. The
good crops makes it easier for many par
ents to send their children to college this
fall. President Morley, who has been
east, is much encouraged over his efforts
to raise sufficient funds to secure the
promised endowment from Dr. Pearsons
by the end of the year.
LAKOTA, N. D.J. P. Lamb of Michi
gan City and George L. Barnett of Lako
ta, populist leaders in Nelson county, have
been instrumental in placing in the field
a ticket that is causing much comment.
At the convention at Michigan City, A.
K. Riten and W. E. Perkins were put up
for the legislature W. Hensey for treas
urer S. S. Aas for auditor W. H. Smith
for state's attorney. Miss Anna Breslain
for superintendent. This ticket is a po
litical study. Mr. Perkins is the partner
and friend of "Tom" Baird, the former
republican leader of Nelson county Mr.
Smith was a candidate for attorney at
the recent republican county convention,
but failed to land. Colonel Sterrett of
Lakota, the present republican county
judge, was a seeker for the populist nom
ination for the same office, b ut developed
no strength. The genial colonel, like
Attorney Smith, was defeated in the re
publican convention at Aneta on Aug. 2.
The offices of sheriff and county judge
were left vacant to be filled, it is under
stood, by old line democrats later on. A
democratic convention will be held on
MAYVILLE, N. D.The new steel on
this division of the Great. Northern was
laid through this city to-day. **ie
rails are being put in place at the rate
of several miles daily. The people of this
section will have cause for rejoicing if the
rumor now abroad, that a section of "The
Flyer" will be run over this division after
Dec. 1 is true. The story is that, on a c
count of the heavy passenger traffic, "The
Flyer" will be run in two sections as far
as Butte, Mont., and that one will run
by way of Faz-go and Grand Forks and
the other through Breckenridge and Lari

heavier than the old and the track is be

GRAND FORKS, N. D.A distressing
accident occurred near Rosby yesterday
afternoon. Passenger train No. 13, bound
from Duluth to Grand Forks, was rounding
a sharp curve, when the engineer. saw a
man lying across the rails. The whistle
was blown, and the air brakes applied,
b ut the distance was so short that the
train was not brought to a standstill till
it had passed over the body, which was
literally cut into small bits. The head was
cut off, as were the arms and legs, and the
trunk was disemboweled, and the clothes
torn to shreds. The remains were left
where they were and word sent to the
coroner, who gathered up the pieces later
in the dav. Engineer Auringer of Cass Lake
was at the throttle. The dea$ man was
probably a laborer.
GRAFTON, N. D.The first serious ac
cident of the threshing season in this
vicinity resulted in a young man, Ed Lar
kin, losing his leg just above the knee.
H e was sitting on the tender of,t he en
gine and in some way tys leg-was caught
under the traction wheel and crushed into
pulp. H e was hurriedly brought to town
and Dr. Glaspel amputat ed his leg.The
weather of the past week has been per
fect in this section for threshing and the
grain is pouring into the elevators at
every station. To-day it is really hot. The
sample of wheat is almost perfect and
yields continue to be excellent.
BISMARCK, N. D.The past week has
been generally favorable for threshing and
stacking. In some sections the rain of
Friday was heavy enough to wet grain so
that it could not be threshed until after
it had dried out. Over one-half of the
wheat has been threshed and most of the
other small grain except flax. The work- is
progressing slowly in some sections on
account of scarcity of help. Some of the
late corn was caught by frost and severely
injured, but most of the crop was far
enough advanced to be secure from danger
from that source, and was not damaged.

FLINT, MICH.Judge George H. Du
rand, of this city, who was stricken with
paralysis three weeks ago and is now

state .central committee:
"Dear Sir:The severe nature of my ill
ness constrains me to relinquish the nomi
nation for the office pf governor of Mich
igan with which I was honored by the
democratic state convention recently held
at Detroit. In doing this I express my
gratitude for the confidence reposed in me
by the convention and for the manifesta
tion of personal friendship which I have
received from all parts of the- state irre
spective of- party politics.
"Very truly yours,
"George H. Durand."
Judge Durand's withdrawal is a great
relief to his family, as he is still a very
sick man. A family council was held yes
terday afternoon at which the judge's
condition*was talked over and the decision
to withdraw his name arrived at. The let
ter was accordingly later prepared and
shown to Judge Durand, who signed it.

refused. The Soo had long ago planned
these excursions and they have nothing
to do with the other matter.

neighboring jpoints to Minneapolis for the
university football games.

Montana Army Post to Be Raised to the:
MIL ES CITY, MONT.If nothing hap-!
pens to block the present plans at army
headquarters, Fort Keogh will be rebuilt,
modernized and materially enlarged toi
accommodate at least a full regiment of'
troopsinfantry, cavalry and two batter
ies of light artillery. This has been de-1
cided upon at Washington and Colonel
Thomas, post commandant, gives out the
information that the plans have already
ben prepared at the quartermaster gen
eral's office,. and the work of rebuilding
will probably commence early next spring,
unless there is a change of purpose be
tween now and that time.
The Fort Keogh military reservation is
ten miles square. The conformation of
the country makes it well adapted to
marching, drills, target practice for rifles
or for field artillery.
It is understood that if present plans do
not miscarry the new Fort Keogh will
rank in importance with Leavenworth, the
new Fort Snelling and Riley.
The proximity of Fort Keogh to both the
Crow Indian reservation and also to the
sometime treacherous Cheyennes has
made it advisable if not necessary to bring
up Fort Keogh to an army post of the
first class in every respect. It is under
stood that the present frame structures,
erected under the personal superintend
ence of General Miles in 1880, will give
place to quarters built of brick and stone.
The extensive sewer system soon to be
contracted for is a part of the permanent
plan, but the connections with the present
buildings, except the new hospital, will be
of a temporary nature. Military men de
clare that the Fort Keogh military reser
vation provides one of the best artillery
ranges in the country. Field guns may be
safely used in practice.

No matter how prosperous or well sit

HALF SHEEPHALF HOG.
Genuine Freak of Nature on a Farm Neatt
MARSHFIELD, WIS.A farmer living
six miles east of this place is the pos
sessor of a freak of nature that can well
be called half sheep arid half pig. . i
The combination is one year old and
weighs 200 pounds. While it was born of
sheep parentage and is covered with a
thick growth -of wool,- its feet, legs and
neck have every appearance of the swine
family, and its grunt and squeal are proof
that the animal is half hog. It is at
tracting much attention and will be
brought to this city and p ut on exhibition
during the street fair, Sept. 25, 26 and 27.

to be one of the chief industries in a few
