Valley City Times-Record: Satur day evening E. F. Whipple of Eckel son was in the city on le^al matters ahil gave The Times-Record the true version of the shooting affair at that place, last week. The young fellow who works at the station, was going: to a nearby slough to shoot ducks and Reese before he went to work in the morning. The Italian, who owns a very ugly dog, had been down the yards attending to his switchlights. The dog made a dasii at the young nitnrod and he fired over the dog to frighten It, "hot caring to Icill it with his first barrel. If the dog did not stop he intended to shoot to kill with the second barrel of the gun. It was early in the morning, not yet broad day and foggy. He did not see the owner behind the dog and the ele vated shot struck him about the face and trunk. He was so far away that they did little damage. Both men came back to the station together and the Italian. did not attach, any particular blame to the young man.

New York World: Burglars ill mobiles, burglars in motor boats when tlie "crib" to be cracked happens to have a water front, burglars finishing off a "job" with a wine supper or tarrying to take a bath in a porcelain tub or passing the night between cool linen sheets in the guest chamber, as at Riverside—certainly housebreaking is fast becoming a gentle art. Bill Sikes, if he were to come to life, would not know the time of day in his pro fession. What the causes are which are operating to bring about the social uplift of the burglar may be left for the sociologist to determine. But to the casual view it must appear that he is merely sharing in the general diffusion of culture. Supplying, the Idot Trade. Cleveland Plain-Dealer: Several years ago a work of fiction by a prominent English author introduced as one of its leading characters a hy pocritical person who bad enriched himself by making idols for the heath en trade. Recently England was a good deal shocked by the story that a factory in Birmingham was turning out the satrte kind of goods and sup plying the same heathenish demand. The matter was at once investigated, and after a careful canvass of the manufacturing interests of the big town, a leading clergyman issued a circular denying the charge emphati cally, but qualifying his denial by the statement that such a factory had ex isted at one time, but that it lost its trade through American competition and was finally forced to close its doors. It is reported that the British public, which has a way of taking these things with a heavy sort of seriousness, isn't quite satisfied with this explanation. British made idols to which the Asiatic or African heath en bow the knee are shameful enough, but to lose the trade in *them to the hustling yankee doeBn't improve the disgraceful situation/ It is the only food for children and the best food for grown or growingpeople, because it is all pure gr ai n— has absolutely no foreign sweetening sub stance.

Victor Anderson, the Switohman. While all of the testlomny given before the coroner and jury in the death of Victor Anderson, the man who was asphyxiated in the Michigan house Sunday morning, tended to show that the man might have taken his life, the jury returned a verdict of accidental death. It was the impression of the jury that the man might have taken his life but the evidence was not direct enough to show that such was the case. The jury was satisfied that it was not by any criminal act that the man met death. Late last night word was received by the sheriff, who telegraphed Can ova, S. D., where thej man came from, that the sender of the telegram, T. A. Granburg, would pay the funeral ex penses of the man as he had no rela tives living in that place. The sender of the telegram is sup posed to be an uncle to the girl who appealed in two letters found among the effects of the dead man, for trans portatlon to come to this city. This young lady is supposed to have been the sweetheart of Anderson and she intended to come on to Fargo and marry the man. In one of the letters she stated to Anderson that she was working for her uncle out in the country and this leads the authorities here to believe that the girl did not start for this city, but that she is still with her uncle, who sent the telegram. Arrangements will be made at once to give Anderson a decent burial. Kansas Boys Offered Sweet Reward. Winfleld Free Press: A well-mean ing lot of young ladies in Cowley coun ty forming themselves into a reform club will be responsible for many a young man's downfall. The club re fuses to bestow kisses until boy to bacco chewers give, pledges to quit, and now the boys who do not use the weed are learning to chew in order to get the reward for quitting. China Making Notable Progress. New Orleans Piacyune: The war between Japan and Russia was a great eye opener #to Th» itt8j8tion, "What constitutes the area 'of the United States?" would seem to' the ordinary layman a simple one, but, according to.Bulletin No. 302 of the United States geological sur vey, of which Henry Gannett is au thor. it is quite the reverse. Juris diction extends to a line three nauti cal miles from the shore, but this strip of sea cannot properly be regarded as a part of the country. Supposing our country to be restricted to the sea and lake coast, there remains a ques tion regarding the bays and estuaries. To what extent should the coast line be followed strictly, and where should we begin to jump across the indenta tions made by the sea? In this matter one can only follow his own judg ment, making in each case as natural a decision as possible,* as no definite criterion can be established. The ab sence of an absolute standard is in large measure the cause of the dis crepancy between the tables of the census-offlec,-made in 1881, and those of the general landofflce, prepared in 1899, both of which show the areas of the Unietd States and of the sev era! states and territories. The ^measurements and computa tions upon which these tables were based were made with great care and thoroughness tn each case, and the results probably represented could be determined as closely as they could be determined from the maps and charts in existence at both times. Most of the differences irt these two sets of tables are trifling, amounting to only a few square miles or a small fraction of 1 per cent, being well with in the limits of error of the plani meter and of the maps used. Some of them, however, are considerable, and a few are explained by the fact that It provides baby with the necessary fat and mineral food for healthy growth. 4* ALL DRUGGISTS! SOo. AND $1 OO.

Washington Star: The spirit of the twentieth century thus far has been been decidedly inimical to the customary methods of the party machine. Never before since tl gov ernment by party became the rule in this republic has the independent voter been so persistently, if not pugnaciously, Independent as hfe is is showing himself to be in these strenuous times. As things are, a party leader is compelled to do his leading very adroitly, must dis guise his handling of patronage' with artistic skill, acting the roll of states man while still carefully providing for his henchmen, and use patronage, the coin of politics, with consummate sagacity If he would escape the odium that is attached to the role* of boss AREAS OF THE UNITED STATES ays Wise and Otherwise When Doc got up Nov. first, He saw the kids had dofie thfilr worst, Just what he said we dare not print, But we will drop this little hint— A Forum "Want Ad" which all indorse, Restored his gate, his sigh, and horse, A grammarian was talking about grammatical slips that, throtfgh their magnitude, merited immortality. "There is one senteme. he said, that has lived for 100 yeans on account of its tremendous incorrectness. In this sentence every word, every single word, is ungrammatical. It's hard to beat that, isn't it? The sentence was spoken by a little girl in a sheep pas ture. Looking at the flocks she said to the shepherds. ''Is them sheeps yourn?" i "This sentence, with every word in corrrect, holds the record in its class." "Boil your water at this season, and if you eat fruit wash it first. For this is the bacteria season. At no time in the year are bacteria so plen tiful as now." The speaker, a chemist, resumed sol emnly: "Call th^m germs, microbes, bacteria, what you will, there are twice as many of them about In the autumn as at any other season. Hence It behoves us to be eareful till the cold comes, freezing them off. These creatures increase rapidly. President Roosevelt, watching the growth of bacterial families. would rejoice. There is no race suicide among them. Indeed, in a dry autumn bacteria will often propagate at the rate of 17,000, 000 a day." The landlady, turning the postal over, read Its contents: Friend Bill: Meet us at the Hull dorf at 9 tomorrow morning. We will automobile to Tuxedo and go up in tha new balloon after lunch. Reginald AstoriHlt*,-'* £he smiled softly to herself. "Why," she said, "I'd no idea! Such a plain dressed young fellow too! An' to think I was Just goln' to turn him out for them eight weeks' hack board!" Children's crimes are recognized by criminologists as a large and im portant branch of criminology. The commonest of children's crimes are ar son, stealing and train wrecking and the rest is forgery. Arson, In the country especially, Is frequently a crime of childhood. Coun try children set fire to haystacks, barns and sheds in order to see the great bright flames leap skyward. Children commit arson, in a Word, out of a love of fireworks. Children often wreck trains."' Some times they do this from reading about romantic train wreckers. More often they do it out of curiosity. They pile obstructions on the track to see what will happen. They have no idea that anything very serious will happen. Children, of course, steal a good deal. The best of men and women.' looking back On thetr childhood, can recall many & theft.' '.Stealing is natural. ,* Children now and 'then murder. Their motive is always jealousy. Thus, in Vienna, a boy of 10, jealous of his brother and sister, who seemed to be more petted than himself, killed both of them and then took his own^j Hfe. i.Vi''vi-'rf rVr Ttrr inbre recent ma$a, which changed^ the position of boundaries between states, had been used by the landofflce, and its measurement was, therefore, morer nearly correct. Other discrepancies, arose from differences in determining) the coast lines. Realizing the desirability of but one government statement of areas of the states and territories, ah attempt has been made by Frank Bond, chief draftsman of the general landofflce, C. S. Sloane, geographer of the cen sus office, and Henry Gannett, geo grapher of the geological survey to come to an agreement on these fig ures. The results of thjeir conference and cooperation are set forth in the aforementioned bulletin. By this adjustment thearea of the United States proper, which is given as 3,026,789 square miles, is increased ever the census office figures by il C8 square miles. The area given for Alaska lis 590,884 square miles. It is subject to consid erable modification in Uie future as the position of the coast line becomes better known. The area given for the Philippine islands is 115,026 square miles, and was determined by the coast survey of that archipelago, pre* pared at the instance of the Philip pine census. It also is subject to mod ification as accurate charts of the ar chipelago are made. The areas of Hawaii. 45449 square miles, and Porto Rico, 3435 square miles, are probably subject to only slight changes, as the charts from which they were meas ured are quite accurate. The areas given for the other small possessions of the United States.Guam, 210 square miles, Camoa, 77 square miies^ and the Panama canal strip. 474 square miles, will probably be changed in the future as their limits become mors correctly defined. Gave Pair of Prisoners Sohii Good Advice and Sent Them to .... Vote, "Are you two men residents o€. this city?" "7' This was the question put to George Brown-and Charles Hantmer, tWo men who were, picked up by the police on a charge of being drunk, by Judge Ryan, in the 'police court Tuesday morning. The two men both stated that they, resided in Fargo and were qualified voters of the county. This was enough said, for Judge Ryan, without asking any further, questions, said: "Both of you are dis charged and a little friendly advice to you on the side is that you place an at the top of the first column on the ballot, thus voting the repub lican ticket straight." One of the prisoners said that lie appreciated the leniency of the court and that notwithstanding the fact that he was a democrat, yet one good turn deserved another and he agreed to vote the straight republican ticket. Cotton Picker. A wise southern inventor has de vised an automobile cotton picker. The work which used to require three or four men to the acre can be done by one man with the help of this ma chine. The great drawback in a cot ton picking machine is that the unripe cotton is picked with the ripe. This disadvantage is done av?ay with in the new invention. This will greatly fa cilitate the handling of our mighty cotton crop. If golden grain belt beer is served at every meal, the home will be cheerful and happy.

Savannah, .Ga., News: The Mexican government fights trusts In a practical and direct sort of way.

The competition had its effect and the trust quickly reduced prices. The government has made arrangements whereby it can go into the meat business on a very large scale at any time, the trust becomes toe greedy. Problem of the Tramp.
