Strong and Healthy
Their Diet Should Be a Revelation
To All Men and Women
Physical perfection, grea.t endurance
nd unfailing health are positively es
sential In severe athletic work and
great attention is given to tbe diet.
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*

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.

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.

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
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
plaintiff's taxable costs. A motion for
a new trial was made, but denied.

The East Grand Forks authorities,

were holding the suspect. The sheriff

the arrest and will probably go after

Man Arcerted In E«s4 Grand Partes
Was Held Here and Discharged
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

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
