CORN FOR GIMANYl
J3on. James Holes Is showing some
splendid specimens of corn raised on
his farm north of the city, which
demonstrates what can be done in
North Dakota in regard to corn-rais
ing. Mr. Holes says that it was
ripened in just ninety-three days and
it will average well with that of the
so-called corn belt. He has sent some
specimen ears tovfriends In Illinois to

Tanned by exposure to the southern
sun, Geo. Q. Erskine has returned
after an absence of three months in
Scotland, England and the continent.
Mr. Erskine left Boston early in
June, accompanied by his daughter,
Mrs. Vance of Crookston, and her son
and daughter—his only grandchildren.
After a pleasant voyage, the party
landed in Glasgow, thence visiting
points of interest in London, Antwerp,
The Hague, Paris, Milan, Naples,
Rome and Florence, and including the
Alps in their itinerary.
While in Florence he saw Dr. and
Mrs. Wear. Both were well, and the
doctor much better than he had an
The pleasure of the trip was marred
only by the recall of Mrs. Vance from
Paris by a cablegram announcing the
serious illness of her husband. Mr.
Vance is recovering slowly, however,
and able to be out again.

Records Show They Were Formerly
Paid by the Secretary of
Board of Education.
As a matter of fact it is Mr. Rijsch
who is in error. The records In the
office of County Auditor Lewis show
that a special paving tax of $318.31
against the high school property was
paid Dec. 4, 1899 by T. W. Swift, who
was then secretary of the board of edu
cation. Other special assessments
against school property paid at the
same time by Mr. Swift were as fol
lows: Special sewer assessment
against Island Park school, $1.77.
Special sewer assessment against the
Washington school, $5.36.
While there has been considerable
discussion as to whether the board of
education should pay special assess
ments against school property or the
city council should make provisions for
the payment of the taxes, it is a matter
of very little consequence so long as
the tax is paid promptly. In the end
the tax-payer pays, and It is only a
question of the channel from whence
The council has objected to the pay
ing of special assessment taxes on the
ground that the board of education is
in better position financially to meet
the payments than the city council.
The cbuncil is limited to a 20-mill levy,
whereas the board of education is not
restricted. Often the city council has
to figure pretty close to include in the
annual budget a sufficient amount to
insure the operation of the municipal
government during the year and the
addition of a load In the shape of spec
ial assessments on school property is

H. J. Rusch stated to a Forum re
porter this afternoon that he had al
ways taken the position that the board
of education should look out for the
special assessment taxes.
"Since I have been a mepiber of the
board of education," said Mr. Rusch,
"the subject has been brought up sev
eral tim^s. Opposition has always de
veloped to any plan which involved the
