Object of Club in Securing Convenient
and Commodious Quarters Is
to Increase Interest.
"The position taken some time since
by the business men o£ Fargo that
a concern worth havlrnr naturally
seeks an advantageous location and
not a money bonus, renders it awk
ward for the commercial club to con
sistently claim the entire credit of se
curing enterprises. To claim full credit
is to lay aside the iniiuence of the
natural advantages the city enjoys.
What the commercial club can do, and
what it does do, is to make prospec
tive locators familiar with the reasons
why Fargo is to continue on Its un
interrupted march to commercial su
premacy, and point out the natural ad
vantages which lead to that conclu
sion," said Secretary Follett this morn
"We have had some success along
those lines," he continued, "and have
several enterprises to our credit. We
have been somewhat handicapped in
our efforts by having no fund with

Is equelly as necessary to create inter

to secure the funds with which to get

for new club quarters with the nec
essary facilities for the establishment
of social features that will naturally
attract many that have never felt any
particular interest in the affairs of the

confidently expected that much good
be accomplished by this move,
^liich is considered on every hand a
popular one, as evidenced by the re
ceipt of a goodly number of applica
tions already handed In, and the ex
pressed intention of many others to
join with us in the work to be done.
"The move seems to bear the stamp
of approval of all, and supplies along
felt need of a place of this kind in a
convenient location, and the location
is certainly the best in the city.
"Some of our business interests nat
urally derive a more direct benefit
from the accomplishments of the club,
but indirectly a benefit accrues to all
by the upbuilding of the city.
"The commercial club is a member

by the interest manifested by our cit

mm SWEET HOME
Voyage and taw
London, Liverpool and frfifts
Ex-Mayor W. D. Sweet returned
this morning from a flying European
trip. In Just one month Mr. Sweet
completed his annual vacation and re
turned home perfectly satisfied with
North Dakota and especially with the
Heu river valley.
"1 told my friends here when I left
that if ther heard of a man in
Europe chasing his hat in a high wind
to be quite sure that it was I," said
Mr. Sweet. "I travelled a foot to the
inch but the things I saw and heard
would fill a volume.
"I went over on a fast boat, the
L.ucanla, and saved about a Week for
sightseeing. I spent about a week
in London and Paris and met a num
ber of people who have friends in
Fargo. I met a single North Dakota
man and was surprised to note how
little people in Europe knew of North
Dakota. These few I met did not know
whether the state was located next
to the Mexican frontier or the Cana
dian boundary. The Red river valley,
however, I found was well known.
"In railroads we are away ahead of
the Europeans. In Paris is located,
perhaps the largest depot on the con
tinent, yet it would hardly be large
enough for an American city of a pop
ulation of 100,000. The freight cars in
Europe look to an American like
wagons and the whistles on the loco
motives sound like 'those the kids
used to make out of birch when we
were boys down on the farm."
Mr. Sweet enjoyed the ocean voyage,
which was the chief object of his trip.
The Cash Grocery Now 616 SMsnd:
Avenue North, Under Pirie's Hall.
By dint of hurry and bustle and
plenty of help, Ellefsen's Cash Grocery
Co. moved from the onerahouse annex
to 616 Second avenue north, whiph is
one of the largest stores In the block,
and directly under Pirie's hall, last
night. Rapidly growing business de
manded more room and as that was
not available in the old stoj-e the move
had to be made. This grocery has
grown into one of the most popular
stores of the kind In the city in the
short space of six months. First class
goods and service, coupled with a lib
eral amount of advertising of the right
kind, Is responsible in spite of the
fact that the store has been several
blocks from what is considered the
business center of the citv.
New Modern Residence.
We have a lot on pavement with
sewer connections, one block south of
the high school, which we will im
prove for reliable party on a term
lease. That is, we will build a house
to suit the tenant—giving him all
modern Improvements at a rental that
will realize for us seven ner cent net

fear but that a sufficient supply can
be secured here in time.
