the old tower will be left standing
until the proposed tower is built.

were made by the priests of Rome

than Is used in the medical profession
today. The historians in their study

A Slight Chance That Street Car Line
Ma/ Be Extended to Fair
In spite of the action of the city
council last night in turning down the
street railway franchise ordinance it
is possible that there will be a street
car line to the fair grounds this year.
Attorney Watson, representing the
street railway company has arranged
for a meeting this afternoon with the
officers of Fargo township. It is ex
pected that Mr. Watson will inform
tlie township officers that the street
railway company is still willing to
build a line to the fair grounds pro
viding the question of service on the
line is not made obligatory.
At the offices of the street railway
company it was stated that if the of
ficers of Fargo township recede from
their position taken at the meeting
Saturday night in demanding an hour
'ly service oln tHte stlib Ilhe, the tracks
can be laid and the line in operation
before the. opening of the fair.
The proposition of building a line
through Reed township to the fair
grounds has been positively turned
down by the street railway company.
It Is claimed that the officials of Far-
