The work on the Great Northern
shops at Devils Lake is also progress
ing rapidly, and the foreman in charge
stated to a local man several days
ago that he expected to have the work
completed by Christmas. The Dev
ils Lake shops wil be larger than any
on the system between St. Paul and
Seattle, with the exception of the
Havre shops. The improvement so
ciety of Devils Lake has purchased a
piece of ground near the shops, and is
engaged in the construction of a num
ber of cottages. There will be about
400 men brought to Devils Lake as a
result of the building of shops, and
this will mean an increase in the popu
lation of about 1,500 persons.
The high wages being paid by the
railroad company at Devils Lake and
other points is resulting in many men
gping on the railroad work who would
otherwise go to the harvest fields.
Danger Signal No. i comes from the
kidney secretions. They will warn you
when the kidneys are sick. Well kid
neys excrete a clear, amber, fluid. Sick
kidneys send out a thin, pale and foamy
or a thick, red, ill-sinclling urine full of
sediment and irregular of passage.
Danger signal No. 2 comes from the
back. Back pains, dull and heavy, or
sharp and acute, tell you of sick kidneys
and warn you of the coming of dropsy,
diabetes and Bright's disease. Doan's
Kidney Pills cure sick kidneys and cure
them permanently. Here's Fargo proof
Mrs. Tom T. Witrik, of No. 7 Eighth
street, south, Fargo, N. D., says: "Mr.
Witcik who was troubled with backache
and kidney complaint for a number of
years, has never found anything to equal
Doan's Kidney Pills as' a cure for such
troubles. In fact, no other treatment
ever had more than temporary effect in
relieving the pain in his back. He was
led to procure Doan's Kidney Pills at
J. M. S. Wilser's drug store through the
good reports from Fargo people con
cerning the merits of this remedy. It
is surprising how quickly they relieved
him of the backache and regulated the
action of the kidneys. His health was
improved in every way. and from his
experience I know that Doan's Kidney
Pills could be depended upon in all
cases of the same nature."

Employs W the Northern Pacific Found

Battered Up Condition.
A. M. Davfes. laborer who has been
employed in the railroad work at Dil
wortli, was picked up near the main
line of the N. P. in Dilworth, Sunday
morning, seriously injured. The na
ture of his wounds has led the author
ities to suspect that he was the victim
of foul play but no other evidence in
support of this theory has been found.
I't appears that Davis and three
other men employed in different camps
in Dilworth, had imbibed freely Sat

on the right path to the camp in

Yesterday morning Davis was found
lying alongside of the railroad track.

head about the size of a, silver dollar

wound on his forehead. The wound

companions believed he should have

At Portuguese bullfights not only are
the points of the bulls' horns sawed
off, but the stumps that remain are
carefully padded. The horses also are
ridden with consummate skill, and ev
ery precaution is taken to prevent the
bull touching them. Banderillas afre
used by the men on foot and on horse
back and are planted in the neck of
the bull, which Irritates the bull, but
cannot be described as torture. Just
as much skill is shown as in a Spanish
bullfight, and there may be just as
beautiful a display of costumes, but
there is no killing either of the bull or

Winger was dismissed
by Judge Ryan, Mrs. Johnson was ill
and unable to appear in court. There
was no dispute -over the fact that the
dog had bitten Mrs. Johnson. Winger
put up a claim that Mrs. Johnson had
condoned tho offense and at first
agreed that the dog need not be killed.
His witnesses asserted the dog was
not cross.
Mrs. Johnson claimed she was se
verely bitten and that the dog was
cross with other people. It is said
the dog will be kept in Minnesota and
later sent to Canada.
Mrs. Johnson denies tho effort to
have the dog killed was the result of
trouble between the two families and
also the report that the canine was a
pup. She insisted it was a grown dog.

Klinsmanns Get the Old
Pitts Warehouse.
The IKllnsmann Co. closed a deal
this morning for the purchase of the
Buffalo Pitts warehouse, the large red
building on Fifth street north, just
north of Pirie's bakery shop, and ap
posite the rear of the Masonic temple.
The building is 45x140 feet and
workmen will begin at once to re
model the same, putting on sheet
metal sides, arranging a commodious
office and making it, as the new own
ers promise, a credit to the street. It
will be ready for occupancy about

The rapidly growing business of the
Klinsmannr Co. which has been doing
a large heating plant business and all
kinds of tin work, and the desire to

business has necessitated the move.
O. A. Klin-smann established the
business in Fargo some three years
ago and a short time afterward ad
mitted his brother, H. A. Klinsmann,

which has been rapidly forging to the
front, so the enlargement seems nat

Cnrlona Storage of Hay.
An English traveler through Kash
mir found in practice there a novel
method of putting fodder up for win
ter use. The country lies in a valley
among the Himalayas. The chief in
dustry of the people consists in raising
fine wool and in making this into fab
rics which have carried the name of
the country all over the world. A cu
rious custom in some places is that of
hanging quantities of hay up among
the branches of trees. Why it was
done was more than I could guess, till
my guide informed me that in winter
the snow lies five and six yards in
depth and that the supplies of hay,
which now look only as if they were
meant for camelopards, are then easily
reached by the flocks,, of sheep which
abound there.

Mara and Satnra.
If Mars and Saturn reflect the same
proportion of the light which falls upon
their surfaces the smaller and much
nearer planet would look three times
as bright as the much more distant
and much larger Saturn. As a matter
of fact, there is no great difference be
tween the two. It is inferred from this
fact that the visible surface of Saturn
consists of clouds, since no surface of
land and water would reflect so much
light as that planet gives.
