Hard-luck Stories Told In the Potte*
Courts By Men Caught In
'It's a pretty hard lesson. It will
Iftftke a tramp of me."
Thus did George Fraser comment
on his arrest last night In the hollow
district on a charge of drunkenness.
He told Judge Ryan In the police court
this morning that he was a locomo
tive fireman and that he should have
been on an engine in the vicinity of
Casselton at the very moment he stood
Up and pleaded guilty to the charge
rtidae against him.
it appears that Fraser had some
trouble in a house in the hollow di&
trict last night and was pushed
through a window. It was while he
was standing on the sidewalk daring
his assailants to come outside and
fight that he was arrested and taken
to the police station.
Judge Ryan imposed a fine of $5
with the option of four days in the bat
"I'll serve the time," said the prison
er, but he changed his mind, when he
Was being led below, and paid.
"John Doe, stand up," said the court.
Chief of Police Wade pointed to a
tall young fellow sitting in the cor
"That's you," said the officer.
"That ain't my name," indignantly
replied the man, "My name is €. G,
The prisoner pleaded guilty to i
charge of drunkenness and was sent
enced to four days in the city jail in
lieu of $5 fine.
After being proclaimed the cham
pion fighter of a fence gang employ
ed on the N. P. near Casselton, John
Hanson came to this city Saturday in
search of pugilistic laurels. He had
been assured that he would be met
at the depot here by a brass band and
presented with the key of the city by
the mayor and his disappointment on
his arrival here induced him to drown
his troubles in drink. He has since
terrorized the lower Front street dis
trict by his willingness at ary and all
times to engage in a fistic encounter
and his arrest last night on a charge
of vagrancy was a popular move for
the police.
"How long will it take you to get
out of town?" asked Chief of Police
Wade, after Judge Ryan had imposed
a sentence of four days in jail.
'Til break a record," replied Hanson.
After Judge Ryan had agreed to the
proposition the prisoner was ordered
to hike. He was warned that if he
made his appearance again he would
be sent below for an indefinite period
of time.
Eminent Doctors Praise its Ingredients.
We refer to that boon to weak, nervous,
suffering women known as Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription.
Dr. John Fvfe one of the Editorial Staff
of Thk Eh.kctio iMKDicAr, Rkvikw says
of Unicorn root (UcUmktu Durinn Which
is one of the chief ingredients of the "Fa
vorite Prescription
"A remedy which invariably acts as a uter
ine invitrorator makes for normal ac
tivity of the entire reproductive system."
He continues "in llelonla.swe have a medica

purposes tlutn mu ollx (h uu with, which I am
acrjuninteA. In the treatment of diseases pe
culiar to women it is seldom that a case is

says: "The following are amontr the leading

If more or less of the above symptoms
are present, no invalid woman can do
better than take Dr. Piercft's Favorite
Prescription, one of tiie leading ingredi
ents of which is Unicorn root, or Helonias,
and the medical properties of which it
most faithfully represents.
Of Golden Seal root, another prominent
Ingredient of "Favorite Prescription,"
Prof. Finley Ellingwood, M. D., of Ben
nett Medical College, Chicago, says:
"It is an important remedy in disorders of
the womb. In all catarrhal conditions
and general enfeeblement, it is useful."
Prof. John M. Scudder, M. D., lato of
Cincinnati, says of Golden Seal root:
"In relation to Its general effects on the
system, there is no medicine in use about whirh
there is such general unanimity of opinion. It
is univermlly regarded as the tonic useful in
all debilitated states."
Prof. Bartholow, M. D.. of Jefferson
Medical College, says of Golden Seal:
"Valuable in uterine hemorrhage, menor
rhagia (flooding) and congestive dysmenor
rhea (painful menstruation)."
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription faith
fully represents all tho above named in
gredients and cures the diseases for which
they are recommended.

Graft Has Existed Almost From th«
Beginning of Time But Publicity
Helps Its Support#!*.
Rolla, N. D., May 18.—To The Fo
rum: Just now the air is full ol
"Insurance frauds," "political graft,'
"the looting of Alaska," etc. Now, all i
this remlndB me of a certain Holy
Scripture, viz: "Or those eighteen
upon whom the tower in Siloam fell,
and slew theni all, think ye that they
Further, I have myself solicited
funds for three Christian schools in
three different states. In every case
I found my work somewhat hindered
by a suspicion of dishonest manage
ment of funds. There was a feeling
ften expressed that the financial
management was not sufficiently pub
lic. In two of these schools I my
self was sufficiently cognisant of the
financial past to know that it was
egnlar and honest. In the other,
while I was not in the inner circle
finance I believed at the time and
still believe it was honest, but I never
really knew, and had I known, my
nvn knowledge would not-have been
public knowledge. Lack of sufficient
financial publicity was a vulnerable
point In each of these schools^
Now whkt is the remedy—a remedy
which will be advantageous to hon
est effort? I recommend the pasasge
of a law requiring every organization
of every sort which solicits or re
cives money from the public to file
each year with some specified public
officer a sworn statement (itemized)
of all moneys received and expended,
and of all funds on hand and where
invested, and making the penalty for
false or fraudulent statements or ap
propriations punishable the same as
similar irregularities in bank officials.
This rule of course compells the keep
ing of accurate accounts. This will be
a benefit to all honest organizations,
as they have proof of their honesty.
In the case of churches, this will in
nowise hinder religious liberty, as it
applies only to the financial part. In
case an organization receives part of
its support from its own members
and part from the public. The public
manifestly entitled to know all
about Its receipts and expenditures
and funds invested. As to fraternities
and clubs and all other organizations
which do not receive support from the
general public, the general public is
manifestly not concerned with the
disposition of their funds.
It is really an insult to tfce public
to ask them to contribute to any
cause, religious, educational or phil
anthropic, without giving them op
portunity to know positively the dis
position of all moneys handled, and
to know it otherwise than by the mere
statements, oral or printed, of inter
ested parties.
were sinners above all men that dwell
in Jerusalem?" (Luke xiii-4.) A prom
inent man in the administration of
charities in a nearby city accuses the
officers of the Salvation army of fail
ure to properly account for moneys
solicited from the public. The offi
cers, one of them, replies, In part,
that the accuser is not clean enough
to accuse but such an answer is in
sufficient. Further, I can point to
more than one Christian academy in
this cfountry which has gone down
through misappropriation or "looting" s
of its funds. Probably no board of I
trustees as a whole would ever con
sent to this but, as in insurance af
fairs, so in these Christian institu
tlons, the real management some
times drifts into the hands of a very
few or even of one man. Then comes i
the "borrowing." Some trustees never
attend meetings others seldom. Fur- i
ther, since the beginning of this na
tion there has, I believe, been as much
"graft" in church and religious affairs
as in politics or insurance affairs, or
in postoffiee affairs, but there is as
yet no adequate method of exposing I
and properly punishing such "graft."
Outside and disinterested parties only
are satisfactory for such investiga
tion. In all cases, politics, religion or
otherwise, the real amount of graft
is small in proportion to the vast
amount of money handled in the ag
gregate, but as Solomon tells us:
"Dead flies cause the ointment of the
apothecary to send forth a stinking
savour." (Ecclesiastes xl.) A small
percent of honest doubt paraltzes self
sacrificing action and some "graft"
and the suspicion of more "graft"
creates in the minds of some benev
olent people a per cent of doubt which
not altogether small. This is a
real fact which will not be downed
by a laugh nor by the righteous in
dignation of men wrongly suspected.

Batchelor, N. D., May l®-—To The

residents of the state of North Dako

found here In this state, and I believe
that if they did, these would be
thronged, in place of North Dakota
citizens rushing elsewhere for pleas

trip to a beautiful summer resort In
this state? It is expensive to go out
side and it is more tiresome than
restful. How many of the readers of
The Forum know about the grand
picnic and summer resorts of the
Turtle Mountain region, especially the
district between St. Johns in Rolette
county and Bottineau in Bottineau
To all who may be skeptical we
would suggest that they take the trip
to St. Johns, take In the sights there,
then go by stage or livery to Fish
lake or Ipselon, one of the finest rec
reation and pleasure resorts to be
found anywhere. Then they might go
west to Carpenter lake and see this
coming resort. They should be sure
to stop ort the way at the home of J.
