S2F The man to succeed with his ad vertising wants to make honeet state ments. in his announcements. AiTCoL Ham. Lewis of Chicago should not be able to gsfihri thfe support of many voters by his denunciation of the laws for pure food and meats. It mav be d«mocratic doctrine to allow all food placed upon the table to be adulterated, but the head of a family appreciates having some of these ad ulterants cut out of the food placed before Wa* wife and children—even if the rich club man wonts condition of affairs. mmmcr/N, a different C. Judging from the newspaper re ports Senator Burton is not faring very badly "In prison," but the stig ma of the disgrace is there Just }he same. •tf One writer well says that Presi dent Roosevelt has put "the fear of God and the big stick In the souls of some people who badly needed this brake." 0T. It may be a good plan to abuse people In order to get them to do as you wish them to do, but there are many times when this coarse will not win out. S^'The government report publish ed yesterday concerning the invest! gations on paving, and approving cre osote blocks, will be of especial Inter est to Fargo citizens. The railroads of Wisconsin are paying so much of the taxes that the state board has remitted the state levy for this year with the exception of one for the public schools. ty An Increase of )i20,000,000 in farm values in North Dakota in five years is pretty good advertising given the state, in the government report published by The Forum yesterday. t^"Tt will be of much value to Far go when the Aneta line is opened for business. It would not be a bad idea for Fargo people to run' an excursion over the line as soon as it is complet ed. Ex.Alderman Everh&rt is deter mined to keep North Dakota to the front wherever he may be. If the state does not put uf a building at the Jamestown expositlon-»-he proposes to do so. The recent snowstorm will make the plowing much easier—where the ground was packed hard—and the far mers are encouraged that they will be able to complete even more than usual of the fall work before the freeae-up comes. &!r It Is said that Edison has again solved the storage battery, but the poor man will have to wait some time yet before the horseless carriage comes down to his means, so he can use it in going to and from his meals. The Rapture of the Sawyer bank robbers is very important and it is hoped that this will break up the bank and postofHce robberies which have been so frequent this year in North Dakota. This lawlessness is unusual, and detracts from the good name of the state. It Is reported that George Moore's history of his life is so bad that even Appleton & Co., refuse to publish it until it is expurgated, but they have promised to. allow the Irish author to insert an explanation in the Ameri can edition. Under these circumstan ces there should be a great demand for the English edition, which la said to be complete. i It lii rather peculiar that with all of his denunciations or corporations o fevery kind—that Mr. Hearst should incorporate as a corporation the In dependent league of New York, and thus give his managers the most dic tatorial authority over candidates and the conduct of the campaign but this is on par with most of the consist ency exhibited by the millionaire own er of the yellow sheets. £9~Every voter should bfcar in mind that he alonn is to blame if he does not get to the polls and vote on elec tion day, and no republican should stay away because of the overwhelm ing majority that party may have in this state. It is your privilege and right to use your franchise, but it is more than that—it is your duty to your country and your flag that you should exercise this right. What Has Climate To Do With Milk?

Ross closed his tenth year's service as deputy sheriff in this coun ty and in that time he has presided over the peace and dignity of the Oas selton district of this county. In that time he has covered every nook and corner in this county and is per haps as well posted on the different localities in the county as any man living in Cass county today. The popular deputy stated Wednes day afternoon while in this city that he feels confident of at least two more years, for he said that "Billy" Hunt's chances for election for a sec ond term are beyond any doubt whatsoever. Captain Dahigren of the police de partment is somewhat dubious of a certain houfce In Fargo and he is now a convert to ghost theories. It all came about Tuesday night. While seated in the office at police head quarters in a deep thought of what the night would bring forth for Fargo's "finest,' the telephone bell rang. The ring of the bell had all of the indications that something ter rible had been discovered. in ans wer to the summons of the bell the captain was informed that the police were wanted at a certain house where a man had committed suicide and had been in the room of the house for two days. The informant ^stated that sbo did not want to go to the room, as she was afraid. Dahigren only needed the tip, for in less time than it takes to relate it, the officer, accompanied by one of the members of the fire depart ment, were at the house and were directed to the room where the alleged suicide was lying. Upon entering the room, which was dark, Ca.ptain Dahi gren flashed his dark lantern and he still .swears that he saw the form of a man lying across the bed. The elec tric light bulb was finally located and when the room was illuminated it was found that the bed was vacant. Both Dahigren and the fireman .stood amazed for the supposed form of the man whom they expected to see with his throat cut from ear to ear or a bullet hole in his head, was not there. Dahigren reported the unique experi ence to Chief Wade and that official's theory Is that Dahigren inhaled too much of the frozen ozone that per meated the atmosphere on the night in question. Dahigren, on the other hand, believes that it was a ghost ITS saw. and he is now a firm believer in ghost stories. The Jeweler made a small dot 0q a pfece of white paper. Then, lie held i large diamond over the dot. "Look through this," he said. Through the diamond the dot looked precisely the same as before. "Now look through this," he said, taking up another stone. Through the second stone the dot was transformed into three dots. "There," the jeweler said, "is an easy way for the average man to tell a real diamond fronp an Imitation. A dot "on a piece of paper looked at through a real diamond is the same as before, but looked at through a fake is shows double or triple or It appears blurred, scattered." FORGER WORKED WIMBLEDON. Signed Employer's Name to Checker Chief Lowe on the Lookout. Grand Forks Times: Chief Lowe to day received notice that a forger' wanted for passing several checks at Wimbledon, N. D., is headed this way.' From the few details gathered it ap pears that the fellow was attired as a thresher and gave the name of Ray Anderson. On Sunday he laid off from" the threshing rig where he was em ployed and wrote^out several checks signing his employer's name to the same. He was successful in cashing' several of these checks, but was! caught in the act as he endeavored to cash the last one preparatory to skipping the country He presented this one to Howard Belknay in a Wimbledon store and was told to wait for his change. The forger became suspicious that something was up and disappeared before the police arriv ed. He is reported as making for this section of the state, and descriptive letters have been sent to all the police itj^ thMi section of the state. j- Wanted Marriage Licemst*, ferafton News and Times: A young man with a blush upon his face, two dollars in his fist and a heavenly light In his eyes appeared in the County judge's office Tuesday and began to open negotiations with a view to ma trimony. He seemed to have relig ious convictions, for he asked if there Was a Methodist minister in town. He was informed that that worthy gen tleman was at conference. Was there a Presbyterian, then, or a Baptist? There was not. The Presbyterian minister was on a trip to Canada, and the other English Protestant churches had no regular minister. "Perhaps a Catholic or Lqtlieran clergyman jyould do?" asked the deputy. The »toung man hesitated, thought about jthe other* party to the contract and mid he was afraid it wouldn't. "Where is the nearest justice?" he asked. Sor ry, but none were very near. Judge Shepherd and Ole*Ouverson were both out fixing fences and DePuy was laid up with a broken leg. Now the de puty is a lady, and the young man did not say exactly what he thought. He looked volumes, however, which more than expressed his opinion of the situation, put his money back in his pocket, and the last seen of him was heading for Pemhina county^ :ioor.

Fargo dealers, have bteen scouring the cotintry to secure a goodly supply for the Thanksgiving season and the reports are most gloomy. The late, wet spring and summer were disastrous for the young birds and the farmers will not be able to meet the demand. The result will be record-breaking prices. Chickens, ducks and geese, more hardy than the young turks, were not seriously affected" and the supply of these fowls will be plentiful at reason able prices.

All of these answer some purpose except the last. She is a confirmed grafter. She goes about eating grass and hay and the grain and chewing her cud in contentment because she knows her owner doesn't know she is working him to a finish for her board. The no-purpose cow gives some milk that will raise some cream, but not enough of either to pay for her feed. She produces a calf yearly, but the profits derived from this are not enough to pay a fraction of her keep. If you try to fatten her for market she refuses to fat, although the feed disappears readily enough. If you try to feed her a balanced ra tion she eats it all right, but fails to respond at the udder. There are such cows, there is no question about it. If there are any in your herd the most profitable thing you can do is to Ami them and get rid of them. w u/u. is traveling north. A few years ago Nebraska was a spring wheat state. Now it is in the winter belt. The Dakotas are growing more and more winter «wheat. But this is not all. Winter wheat is a big crop in Alberta and trial plats have been grown all over northwestern Canada during the last three years. Wherever the land was originally covered with scrub there seems to be no difficulty in rais ing the winter variety. Last year the Canadian Northern railroad sent two carloads of Turkey red wheat from Kansas into the Carrot river country of north Saskatchewan. The harvest this summer showed yields ranging from thirty-five to forty bushels to the acre. Winter wheat in a spring wheat region divides the work at seeding and harvest, making it possible for "each farmer to handle larger areas. Information "Wanted. On Sunday, Oct. 22, two boys at Forman mysteriously disappeared from town, and are supposed to have taken one of the several freight trains which passed through town that day. The boys' names are Melvin Glorvick and Lucius Jackman. They are each about 13 years of age, but the Jackitian boy is considerably larger than his com panion. The Jackman lad has black hair and eyes and is of dark com plexion and quite stocky build, and wore a blue sweater and black coat. The Glorvick boy is of sandy complex ion, with light hair and blue eyes, and wore a new pair of overalls, black coat and sweater. The two had one grip. Anyone who can give any in formation of their whereabouts will do their parents a favor by telegraphing W. T. Jackman, sheriff of Sargent county, Fornmn, N. D., at hi^ expense. Civil Service. One of the most important civil ser vice examinations to be held next month in this city is the examination for a press boy for thp railway mail service. This position offers splen did opportunities for boys of the age between 15 and 20 years for after once receiving an appointment lit means rapid advancement in this branch of the government service. Heretofore it has been difficult to secure appli cants to take the examinatidn but this year the civil service commission is milking an extraordinary effort to se cure applicants for the position. The examination is not a hard one and the average school boy Is eligible to take the examination. The compensation to start with is $450 a year but once in the service it means rapid promotion. l, It There a Coal Trust. Mandan Pioneer: The coal fam ine has uncovered a peculiar situation in regard to the hard coal supply. Thf dealers in Mandan who have alw.i- been supplying our people, find that their supply has been shut off without any apporent reason other than they have not been charging enough for th' fuel Of course these are not rim reasons given out from letters receiv ed but it looks that way. The line s*anK who have been passed up by people who gave their orders to the dealei who could put in- the coal the che-n est, have evidently formed a con.lu nation which is contrary to the laws of our state and an Investigation will be demanded. NO ACTION WAS TAKEN Drainage Board Finds There Is .M# Provisions for Hearing Remon* stances—Contract Not Let. The Cass county drainage biSaNT I failed to take any action on the re monstrances that were made by a icommittee .of about thirty farmers from Gardner and" Wiser townships to the building of the Great Northern drainftge ditch as petitioned for and which has already been surveyed. The committee of landowners from the two townships put up a spirited fight against, the petition being granted. The board after hearing from the var ious landowners decided to defer ac tion in the matter for tlje time being as It is now too late to start construct ing the ditch. It developed at the meeting yesterday afternoon that the drainage law of the state does not provide for the hearing of any re monstrances and the members of the board are agreed to wait without tak ing action on the petition until after the legislature meets when it Is ex pected that the law will be amended so as tp permit the filing and hearing of remonstrances. The committee before the board Is willing that the low lands in the two townships should be drained which is provided in the first petition for the ditch that was filed. It is claimed, however, that the second petition filed for the ditch proposes to extend it five and a half miles and that this exten sion would be upon high land which has a natural drain and which would mean the expenditure of about $15, OOjl itl building the extension.
