warrants issued by the city to pay for
the Front Street paving, and which
were purchased by the b^nk. The ac

Professor Shepperd of the A. G. re
turned to Pargo with the party of live
stock students last evening after haviftg
spent a delightful period of something
Tnore than a month—accompanied by
Mrs. Shepperd—'in visiting-, the large
cittes. A week, in Mew York
and-ten days in Washington, D. C., con
stituted their longest stops, although
Niagara, Buffalo, Albany. Troy, West
Point, Philadelphia, Baltimore Annap
olis and Cincinnati, all formed interest
ilng points for shorter visits.
Mrs. Shepperd is returning by way of
&er old home in southern Iowa instead
#f visiting the stock show and expects
to reach Fargo some time next week.
Prof. Shepperd says he asked for The
forum at the congressional library in
Washington and learned from it that
the county courthouse had been destroy
ed by fire and much other interesting
i*ews. The fact that The Forum is. kept
on file in the libraries of the seaboard
pimply reinforces the common- remark:
^Everybody reads The Forum."
Professor Shepperd told a Forum re
orter that while in Chicago recently
ic arranged with one of Swift & Co.,
•stock men to come to Fargo for the
ten day stock judging course to give the
students an idea of the type of hogs
which the Chicago market demands.
Mr. Ferguson was formerly professor
of animal husbandry in the Michigan
Agricultural College and* is one of the
cleverest men to demonstrate types of
stock, by taking animals before his audi
ence, to be found in this country.
The fact .that he goes right into the
stock yards at Chicago and buys and
sorts out the car load lots of hogs to
suit the different market demands indi
cates that he understands the business
from"the practical standpoint. He re
quested Professor Shepperd to prov'idfc
him with some practicaf market speci
mens such as the farmers have which
he can have slaughtered after the stock
men have passed judgment on them. If
Mr. Ferguson carries his demonstrations
to the pork chop and cured ham basis it
would seem that he should be able to
instruct our farmers satisfactorily, even
if they have come from Missouri and
have to be shown.
Briggs & Delancey of Valley City have
sent some of their fine Percheron blood
ed horses to the college for use in the
stock judging classes next week which
irtsures a high grade of stock in that
line. The character of the stock which
will be used for the stock judging
at the college during the next two
weeks will be an agreeable surprise to
the stockmen. The prospect is that all
of the available space in the stock judg
ing room will be filled. Stock and grain
