In Bchools where a "tradning table" Is provided for the athlete, only the most nutritious food Is served, and in rases where there is :no training table the athlete is advised to eat the most healthful fo»od only. Whether or not foe follows mich advic« is soon shown by his physical condition. If the aver age man—the business man—the law yer. the teachar, the clerk, the mechan ic. the laboreC—took such, care as to the food he ettts as the athlete does, there would be Car less of sickness and suffering in this world. Among- athletes the food value of wholf wheat is recognized. They have demonstrated wharf scientists have long declared to be tree: that the various food elements found In wheat are the food elements with which the blood and muscle, the tissues and cells, the bone nd brain of th* human btody most be eplenished if life and perfect strength re to be sustained. Every nutritive element of the beat white wheat grown Is found In "Malta Vita and it is fast becoming aw popu lar among other people as It long has been among athletes. And Malta-Vita la so good to eatt Always crisp! All grocers, 10 cent* lican party—always for every emergency. y .- (,' 4 has men ready cr Those who have Inspected the new Cass county courthouse are pro fuse In their commendations of Its handsome appearance, safety and con* venience. €T The improvements undertaken in Moorhead will make a new city of the burg across the way. It will soon have a growth that will surprise even the old time residents. *71he agricultural department states that many of the' bottled wa ters for »table use are not what they seem to be. The old spring with its gourd seems to be the only safety la these days. arThe crop is not turning out as large as some anticipated, but it 1s a wonderful yield, and It will bring many million dollars into the state, and continue the prosperity which North Dakota has enjoyed to such an extent for these many years. BTOfne of the sights of Fargo today for the stranger within her gates—are the buildings out on the fair ground^. Their reputation has been spread far and wide, and there are maay who so out to view them— and marvel at their beauty atkd- at tractiveness. v W Emperor William wants editors to submit to an examination the same as doctors and lawyers—before they are allowed to take charge of a newspaper. It would be more sensible to have the financial standing of the publishers carefully scrutinized before they are allowed to start a newspa per—to see how long they can put up for the deficiency which is sure to be created for a long time in the future. tsr There are many vacant lots In this city which should be mowed at this time of the year. The weeds are tall, they are going to seed and will be scattered broadcast: this rank vegetation will also catch and hold the snows this winter and help to place the adjoining walks in bad con dition. It would add much to the at tractiveness of the city now and in the future if these weeds could be cut down now. £7 Banker Stensland's story of th«i failed Chicago bank is an Interest ing one, but there are parts of it at least which will be disputed. One statement he makes which will be heartily agreed to on all sides. He says—the Milwaukee Avenue bank failed because it was a one man bank —one man had complete control of it and that one man was himself. Any financial institution is in danger when it is a one man concern. icy The other morning a citizen was found In a brown study, on his way home from down town. He was asked what the matter was, and he respond ed that he was trying to discover what the "moral" was the author Intended in a story he had read the previous evening. He was one of the old style men who believed that a writer al ways starts out to "point a moral" to every tale, and did not realize that in the present age many a story is writ ten simply to try and hold the reader's attention until the concluding chap ters are reached—and with some of these narratives they are the more popular the less there is a hint of good morals in connection with them. car Roosevelt Is a great eittsew atod has proved to be a wonderful chief executive, Sut the man "who believes that he 1B the only statesman who can safely conduct this nation In Its course of greater development—shows that he is not a true republican.

American by C7 President Roosevelt shows his common sense in his letter to the head of the government printing office—to whom he writes In regard to the pro posed changes in the spelling of some words. He says that he does not want anything radical—he thought the ex periment was worth trying—to have certain words spelled in a more sen sible manner, but if public sentiment does not approve the movement it will fall to the ground with its own weight, and everybody will go back to the I was rendered old way of spelling these words.

In the staging of one of his earlier plays a friend accompanied him to a rehearsal, at which a lively disagree ment arose between two of the actresses as to the possession of the center .of the stage during a certain scene. While the manager poured Oil on the troubled waters, Mr. Jeffer son sat calmly swinging his feet from the rail of an adjoining box. The friend could stand# it no longer, "Good Lord, Jefferson," hie cried, in an excited aside, "this will ruin your play! Why don't you Interfere? You could settle matters' if you only would!" Mr. Jefferson shook his head with a gravity that completely veiled the twinkle in his eje. "No, George," he replied, soberly "the Lord only made one man who could ever manages the sun and moon, and you remember even he let the stars alone." THE SAME OLD GAME. Clever Crook Who Borrows Coin From Strangers Operated Again. Grand Forks Times: Complaint was made to the police today by a Scan dinavian workman who has not been long in this country that he had been accosted at the depot by a stranger, who, after telling him that he was go ing to Fargo, the destination of the Scandinavian, borrowed the sum of $3 of him and disappeared. This is but a repetition of a certain specialty in the bunco line owned and patented by the mysterious stranger who has been working it in the valley for the past three years and who has several times been almost but not quite within the clutches of the law. Last year a party was approached by the shark, and after a pleasant con versation a sum of money was bor rowed upon a check which was shown and which the oily tongued Individual "could not cash betause the bank was closed." The two walked down town together and when the Clifford build ing was reached, the shark excused himself for the purpose, as he stated, of going into his office and cashing the check with the cashier. He went in and probably came out again-—at an other entrance, for he was never seen again by his victim. The police have a good description of the man who turned the trick today, and he is un doubtedly the same party. He is de| scribed as short, dark and stout, well dressed and looking like a prosperous business man. He talks smoothly and can converse in Scandinavian, as was demonstrated today when he buncoed the immigrant out of $3. It was claimed that they had: him nabbed at Crookston once, but it turn ed out to be another party. The of ficers are o( the opinion that he has a room in the city somewhere and are laying for him. GA80LINE DAMAGE CA8E. Interesting Action to Be Heard by the Supreme Court at Grand Forkfe An interesting case is to come up for trial at the term of the supreme court to be held in Grand Forks commencing Sept. 18. It is the action entitled James T. Morrison vs. P. P. Lee. The action was brought to recover damages. The plaintiff was a sign painter liv ing at Minot, N. D. The day of the ex plosion, Dec.y 2, 1902, he went to his shop for the purpose of working, and took a gallon kerosene can partly filled with oil, which he supposed to be oil, to start a fire in a stove in which he burned lignite coal. The stove was cylindrical, with a door at the top. and, throwing this door open, he took the can, and tipping it forward, pro ceeded to pour oil upon the eoal in the stove. The result was an instant blaze,and plaintiff tipped the can back and stopped pouring because, he says, he wa# surprised to find fire there. Then, with this condition existing, and knowing there was a Are there, he tipped the can over a second time, and proceeded to pour more oil1 into the stove, when the explosion oc curred. The explosion took place in the can, and not in the stove, blowing the bottom of the can out and the oil up his arm all afire, causing the injury complained of. It appears that the stopper of the can was unscrewed so that air could flow Into the can as the air went out of the spout. A stream of oil was running from the can to the fire at the time of the explosion. The can had been sitting by the stove for several days, the oil having been pur chased twelve days before the explo sion, and plaintiff having used it sev eral times in the filling of a lamp used by him in. the shop. The appeal 'Is taken from an order denying the defendant's motion for a new trial, or for judgment notwith standing the verdict of the jury. The object of the action is to recover dam ages sustained by plaintiff through the explosion of an oil can while he was engaged in pouring kerosene oii out of it upon the fire. The general theory of plaintiff's action is that gas oline was mixed with the kerosene oil bought by him of the defendant as kerosene oil, in such a manner as to render the oil purchased explosive and dangerous, and that, therefore, the defendant is liable. The case was tried before the court and a jury, and spe cial verdict rendered. Subsequently plaintiff moved for judgment upon the special verdict. The plaintiff's mo tion was granted, and final judgment for the damages as $8,000, and plaintiff's taxable costs. A motion for a new trial was made, but denied. 8®8f5f,J^y are apt to go too far, and doing they injure their own A i t- A 2 W v I* X' V" V rX-i..

The man arrested at salt Grand Forks last night and held on suspicion of being "Blackle," the Valley City murderer, is known to the Fargo po lice. He was arrested here several days ago but was discharged when the police had become satisfied that toe was not "Blackie." Chief of Police Wade received a mes sage from the East Grand Forks au thorities last night regarding the sus pect. It appears that the suspect in- again this year, formed the East Grand Forks officers when he was arrested there that he had been under suspicion here and had been taken into custody. 'While the fellow answers the de scriptions sent out of the suspected Valley City murderer, I satisfied my self that he was not 'Blackle' and that he had nothing to do with the Valley City murder before I allowed him to go," said Chief of Police Wade. "The fellow was picked up by one of the patrolmen here a few days ago and was brought to the station. He told a straight story. He said that he had been shipped here to go to work with a threshing outfit. He had some old clothes wrapped up in a bundle and, after I had satisfied myself that he was not 'Blackle' I told hlin that he could go, but I kept his bundle at the station and told him to come back for it later in the afternoon. "About 4 o'clock that afternoon the felllow returned for his property. This fact alone Is convincing that he is not in fear of being arreBted on any ser ious charge." National OF FARGO How is it with she children these days? Have they plenty of grit, courage, strength? Or are they thin, pale, delicate? This reminds Farmers vs. Blind Pigs. Jamestown Alert: The farmers of Courtenay and vicinity are said to be almost unanimously against the run ning of blind pigs, especially at this season of the year, as the boose joints, traveling or stationary, create trouble with farm help, who get full of cheap whisky and become either unfitted for work for some time afterwards, or leave the country altogether. A recent well-known blind plgger, now in Jail under $2,000 bond, which he is unable to furnish, i& not likely to bother the local authorities of Courtenay, at least, until after the threshing season. There were about a dozen witnesses who tes tified to the sale of booze by the pigger above referred ^o and the Courtenay authorities did not want him to get out on a small bail and begin business PACKING A.
