North Dakota gained in populati.on between 1890 and 1900 136, 427 or 74.7 per cent. South Dakota dur ing the same time gained 72,762, or 22.1 per cent. It will be seen that North Dakota gained almost two in population where South Dakota gained one. Four teen' counties in South Dakota lost in population between 1890 and 1900 viz. Aurora, Beadle, Brule. Fall River, Faulk, Hand, Hughes, Hyde, Jerauld, Pennington, Spink.

There were twenty teams and people awaiting to cross the tracks who saw the occur rence. There were two switch engines working near the crossing and for pro tection I kept the gates down on both sides.

The young women divided themselves into groups, and each group had charge of a room in which its members served re freshments and saw that the guests were entertained with games. In one room Misses McLean. Kelley and Weltzin served Russian tea and waiters, their game being an amusing game with cards-^not playing cards, of course— in the library were Misses Morrish, Mc Mordie, Ayrea, Bakken, Mol.den and Chase, who dispensed chocolates and almond wafers, offering ping pons' as their amusement in another Missos Nelson.

POISONOUS WEEDS. On account of the heavy losses suf fered by cattle raisers in the west through the growth of poisionous weeds 011 the ranges, Secretary Wilson has sent one of his best experts to study means for eradicating them. For some years the department has been working on poisonous weeds, and has found that loco is the most widely dis tributed of the deadly plants, and costs the state of Montana alone a loss of over annuallv ip the death of cattle. Stock raisers from all over the country are appealing to Secretary Wilson for means lor stopping the spread of the plant. Loco is described as being the pea vine, growing from six to twelve inches long, with white blossoms. It has a strong, woody root, and so far the only known means' of killing it out is by digging up the root, and even this method is successful at only certain seasons. This method is almost im possible on -the great western ranges, containing thousands of acres, and oth fcr aiVd. speedier methods are being sought. The weed works havoc with sheep, and has in some localities become so troublesome and fatal as almost to drive raisers out of business. There are also a number of deadly weeds to be studied by the' government expert in battix skips, axd hi cox- KANDEK, CAPTAIH W. 8.

STATE EXHIBIT AT ST. LOUIS. Lieutenant Oovernor Bertlett Discusses Ornln Bxhibtts and Shipment to Parte. Lieutenant Governor Bartlett was in the city today on business and when Passed a wish that The Forum would state at1^ the irrigation congress at Bismarck. ^draeSHSel *'1 a t. line to McKcnzie station, expecting to get a train there for Hazelton. But there was none. They got hold of a dilapidated handcar that was out of gear. A piece of can vas was procured and the wind being brisk and in the right direction, away they went at a forty mile an hour clip. About the time they reached the Soo crossing the wind gave out. They were then compelled to take turn about shov ing the car the remainder of the way to Hazelton—ten or twelve miles—up grade all the way, Hazelton being more than that anyone who had taken the T°iL^oyiibk i™"* Put them on the railroad properly a,d at »lls e»d. A party of folks from this country 'that there were individuals who had mostly Hazeltonians—had quite an ad- niade collections, but who were not venture on their way home. They known to members of the state com mission who had charge of this work. Mr- Bartlett stated He urges that exhibits be sent as soon as possible as efforts are.being made to have the state grain exhibit sent sometime in January. Mr. Bartlett further stated that the exhibits from North Dakota would be the best ever prepared Reverting further to the exposition Mr. Bartlett said the exhibit of North Dakota clays would be particularly fine and that in this department there would be specimens of fine china made from North Dakota clay and decorated by North Dakota women. He goes to St Louis next week to perfect arrange ments which cannot very well be done by means of letters and another thine: he said it would take too long a time MONTANA TOPOGRAPHY. A topographic may of the Coopers Lake quadrangle of Montana, the greater part of which lies in the Lewis and Clark forest reserve, has just been issued by the United States geological survey. This may covers 812 9.000 THE EDGE IS OFF. Hartford Courant: It is the fashion in certain quarters to lay the present condition of inactivity to President Roosevelt for permitting the sui' against the Northern Secruities Co.. and here and there you can hear that when the supreme court decides that famous case in "Tim" Hill's favor, then 011 will come the boom again .niore eager than ever. It is not for us to *y what the supreme court is going to do, but it is safe to say that, whatever it does, the edge is off the public palate Midas has gone fishing. You can cry his name up and down the streets but the people will not even look out to see if he is there they are sure he has given up his job. Get rich quick is over. Business is chock full of psycho logy. A mental condition of exalta tion has passed away and one of in trospection has come. The people are not thinking of getting rich, but rather of not being any poorer. In this queer world it will turn out that this very at titude is making them richer. But they do not feel so now, and decisions of courts, rainbow articles in the pewspa pers. and other bcguilements will not move them. MARKETS* The Coe Commission Co. reports: Liverpool cables this morning came slightly lower and this together with the continued perfect weather all over the country and increased receipts at Minneapolis and Duluth, caused a slump in the Minneapolis market short ly after the opening, which was the same as last night's close. After sel ling down from the opening price, however^ the market rallied and ad vanced steadily during the latter part of the session closing fractionally high er than the opening and the highest prices of the day. Some rains are re ported in Kansas and the Missouri Val ley, but this is not an unfavorable fea ture, as the winter wheat and late corn can stand it Minneapolis reported 497 cars in this morning, and Duluth has 153, making a total of 650 cars at these points against 698 same day last year. We look for a break during the early trading tomorrow, and hardly expect anything more than a scalping market for some time to come. JFARG") MARKETS.
