Business Office 504L Compos ng Room 504M Editorial Room *....... 639L Local Repot ters and Ile^s Room.... 639M Henry Clews & Co. report that despondency is gradually disappearing in Wall Street and a more confident tone is .taking its place. It is thought that forced liquidation is over and that stock values are as low, or lower, than intrinsic conditions warrant. That ought to be very good news to the general business world. Over $2,oco, coo,ooo of fictitious value in stoqks has been wiped out in the past year,, but in real values the country has not gone backward,- but on the contrary has made substantial gains, as is demon strated by the constant increase in railroad earnings,, the healthy real es tate market and the bountiful crops, which have added billions of dollars to the wealth of the country. Notwith standing the evidences qf general pros perity'it rhnst be admitted that the de plorable conditions in Wall Street have acted as a sort of damper on busines's but the result /has been beneficial.-- The conservative spirit that has thereby been engendered has doubtless prevented grfcfttjer reaction and what might have been financial dis aster. That Wall Street values could go so low and then recover -without widespread disaster is a matter for gen eral gratulation. Up to Oct. 31 gross railroad earnings for 19Q3 showed an increase of $66,000,000, or about it per cent over last year, and with the good crops it is almost certain there, will be no diminution, of traffic for the win ter at least, though the steel, building and other trades arc an adverse factor. While bank clearings decreased 30 per cent in New York last week in the western states the increase was 12 per cent. There are indications that the steel trade is picking up and lower prices are expected to result in .increas ed orders. Exports from the United States last month were over $i6jcco, 000. a gain of $I6,ooo,oco over October of a year ago, and imports shovjred a loss of $2,000,000 for the month. The general business situation appear^ sat isfactory. 'f. e doejs1? pot ^seefli to be a matter of mueh concern in Fargo this fall. Contrasted with a year ago the city is fortunate. Then the matter of securing coal or wood was uppermost in the minds of many. Price was not the primary considera tion. It was anything to provide suf ficient heat. Coal was a true king in the winter of 1902. Now, while there is a good demand for all kinds of coal there is little inconvenience in secur ing it at reasonable prices. Perhaps the difference between prices a year ago and now, is responsible for the ap parent satisfaction with present Condi tions. Much more anthracite coal is being sold in the markets, as a matter of course, but lignite vyon many friends last year and the North Dakota fuel is more firmly established tfyan ever. Last year people of North Dakota were fortunate in having mild weather most of November and part of Decem ber. It has been colder this year but the improvement of the fuel situation has offset that. With fairly good har vests and plenty of fuel North Dako tans are ready for whateVer /kind oI winter Comes.

It is to the interest of all the people of the state that North Dakota gain this important point, which iavsira'$y justice.' ***Tbe local business situation indi cates that prosperity continues in North Dakota and there is every reason to expect an unusually good holiday trade. Wholesale and re tail firms have been and are preparing for an expansion of business such as the growth of the state during the past year and the returns from the crops seem to warraut. There is a general feeling of confidence that is most gratifying and the manner in which merchants arc going after busi ness and the promptness with whiqh the public responds speak well for the solidity of trade. It is the optimism of conscious prosperity. The crops have been good ao^, prices have in creased. Why sfiQpidja't business be improving?' .i 1.

Carjiio News: An old man who ha^ been working around Carpio this fall, succeeded 'in taking enough bf his own medicine this week to paralyze him and his bosom friends left him to the expos ure of the elements and the results are.j, Two frozen hands about fit for ampu tation, ears about twice their normal size and other injuries. A summons for medical aid revailed a nefarious business but the dilapidated piece of humnaily could not testify against his heartless as sociates for fear of being implicated him self and there you are. A Search of the premises revealed two or three, bottles full and about, seventy-five empties, but that wasn't evidence enough to convict them and two go free. The third was bound over under $500 bonds which ht tailed to secure and went to Minot Wednesday. ^-m NEW SALEM. 'Bismarck Tribune: Indications'""a? New Salem are that the town will.bi greatly improved in. appearance as result of the extensile fire there last o n v V 1 Excavations are nearly completer and'a' part of the tar&teriaf ground for a on tht ISO-foot front brick blockt This meatis that oVie-quarter of one ol its principal business''blocks "is to be covered with a substantial fire prool building that will be made thoroughly modern in all respects. The building will be constructed jointly by Hon. Philip Blank, Otto Brothers and the First National Bank, and will be used for bank, store and hotel purposes. New Salem is one of the busiest towns on the line and the merchant? and business men are wide awake and en'terprising. It is the headquarters for the creamery industry of Mortoi County, from which source there is dis tributed among patrons about $100,00c annually. Besides its creameries it has a large flouring mill that is kept busy the year round filling orders for its products, and the farmers of the, sur rounding country supply the necessary grain, for the town is surrounded with a rich agricultural country. I The town is putting in a waterworks system for the purpose* of providing fire protection. It is the direct pres sure system, and is nearly completed. :v: Depends largely on the condition o? the stomach. If this important organ is allowed to become weak, CONSTI PATION DEVELOPS.

"Yes," said Commissioner Brown, who was in the city last vreek assist ing in "waking temporary ^ou'rt house arrangements, 'wil(l^eesii :^ave a won derful instinct for diro$te&U<I was out in a lot on my farm a short time ago and the weather \yas very cloudy. I was not sure of my bearings' despite the fact that I had tramped the same ground hundreds of times. "While I was pondering over my di lemma fl flock of wild geese flew over. They were high and most certainly flying south. It struck me as strange that man with all his scientific schemes for ascertaining directions under ordi nary conditions, should be baffled, while a wild goose never mistakes the way. "But the birds are not altogether as wise about some things as they might be. They follow their leader like a flock of sheep. Over in Ireland some geese were flying over a farm yard and the rtwner shot the leader. The others followed the dead leader to the ground, and the man picked it up and carried it into the barn, the others in the flock followed close behind. After all the geese iwere inside the: farmer shut the door-''and he had' the'entire flock at his mercy." v Four hunters ^retumfed froim the up north country a few days ago, tired, footsore* wq^ry and penniless, as a re sult of poor nrarkmanship'and poorer eyesight. They brought no g&rae with them and were "flat broke." It is said that they werd*'.Waving a fine time shooting, although they had bagged no game.. Spying what a mem ber of the party took for a deer they hastily cast lots to see who would have the first shot. The deer was standing in a clearing near a tree, appearently waiting to be killed. The lucky man drew up and blazed away and the ani inal dropped. All ran up to see just where it was hit and found a young calf kicking in its last kicks, and it Vtas tied to the tree, at that. With no desire to make, the matter public the quartet was stealing its way softly out of the vicinity when the own er of the calf confronted them, ft was easy to see that lie was in an angry mood. And, since it was evident that the hunters had strayed 011 to a pri vate plot of ground in their excite ment, .it took no great reasoning for them to see that they were in for it lor trespass. The owner said the calf was a full blooded Jersey, and demanded $47.50 in settlement. If not paid at once he threatened to swear out warrants for the crowd for trespass and sue them afterwards for the value of the calf. They paid. "I will never forget my first hunt," said a Fargo man, yesterday. "I was spending a few days at a lumber camp in northern Minnesota and had been told that deer were very plentiful not ar from the camp. When the season opened I pledged the men at the camp chat I would get some venison for a Sunday dinner. "I borrowed a repeating j-ifle from, -lie foreman of the camp'and after: walking a short distance on a fine Sat lrday morning came onto a trail. I ol lowed it for some time and my search was rewarded with the sight of 1 big buck standing net far away. No, 1. didn't get the 'buck ague' but cooly planted myself behind a tree and com nenced to fire. The first shot I was certain had struck home. Still the buck emaincd. motionless and although hiuking it somewhat strange 1 fired -gain with the same result, the buck 'ever even stirring from its tracks. I nally emptied the contents of the nagazine in the animal and was as, nuch astonished as ever. I heard suppressed snicker and then tumbled, walked up to the buck and found \V lead as a door nail and frozen stiff. Roars of laughter came from behind 1 thicket nearby and several of the :amp men made their appearance. The uck had been killed a few days before nd 'planted' for me and it todk tne juite awhile to square myself."
