ing Bogus Bulbe.
A bold, bad bunko man with bogus
bulbs Is abroad In the land and has
been operating, more or less extensive
ly among the residents of the east
side, where he has parted with his
bulbs at four bits per. According to
the story of a lady resident of the
«outh side who was "taken in" by the
man, he is representing himself to be
i representative of a Minneapolis flor
The lady in question was approach
ed yesterday at her home by the agent
.vho at once launched into a flowery
leacrlptlon of the virtues of his won
I lerful bulbs, which he declared "have
i ust been discovered, are early bloom
ng, frost proof and guaranteed to
tiloom in any climate." The agent
continued to say that the only time
vhen these bulbs can be planted, with
ssurance of their proper growth, is
luring the last two weeks of Novem
ber. After hearing his story and see
ng the wonderful illustrations shown
her from a small catalogue which the
agent carries, the lady decided that
two of these wonderful blooming bulbs
should be hers and accordingly told
him that he might plant two of them
In her yard, near the porch, where
their bright blooms might brighten the
bleak days of spring, for it Is fn the
springtime, says the agent, that the
bulbs are especially active.
Accordingly the agent knelt upon
the damp, dark ground and ^digged
two little holes, nice little holes
wherein to bury the beautiful bulbs.
-While he was engaged In interring
the embryo joy bringers the agent
a^slted the lady If she would bring him
I two small sticks to serve as monu
ments to the plants and warn the
heavy foot of humanity to tread not
on the graves of the plants which were
to arise soon and assert themselves.
When the lady returned with the two
small sticks she found that the plant
ing had been finished and the agent
aftor placing the markers took the two
half dollars and his departure.
After the agent had gone the lady
became somewhat suspicious and un
covered the graves of the bulbs. And
when the earth had been cleared away
she beheld the holes but no bulbs, no
butt*. Mayhap the agent has them

Bismarck Tribune: "Sfot machines
are a curse to the city."
So spoke a business man yesterday
who had reason, by the falling off of
collections from certain residents of
the city, to feel personally the evil the
cash slot machines have wrought in
"When customers say they are un
able to pay their monthly bills be
cause they cannot resist the tempta
tion to play the slot machines that are
to be found all over the city," con
tinued the merchant, "it is time some
thing was done to rid the city of these
At his suggestion The Tribune has
looked Into this matter and was
amazed at the machines in operation
at various points. A hurried canvass
of the city developed the presence of
slot machines that are played for
money in the following places: Frank
Kunz's place, 2 J. E. Murphy, 4 Grif
fin's pig, 2 Northwest hotel, 1 Chris
Reimer's main street
pig, 2 Dewey house pig, 2 Egan's
pig, 1 Reimer's Fifth street pig, 1
Club restaurant, 2, and Utopia res
taurant, 1, and there are doubtless
other places where they are to be
These machines vary in the amount
that can be played in them from 5
cents to a dollar, and the extent of
their extortion can be guessed at when
one person last week cleaned up $160
from the machines located in his place.
At this ration about $800 weekly Is
split up between the men who rent
the machines to the local parties and
those who have the machines in their
places of business.
Isn't it a pretty godd'tfci to pay
The machines In themselves are bad
enough, but it is currently reported
that the greed of some of the parties
Is so great that three quarters of the
large prizes are plugged so that there
is no chance for the poor devil who
throws his money away by going
against this brace game to win once
In fifty times.
The machines are simply robbers
and the law recognizes them as fcoch.
The limit seems to have been reach
ed and it is time the machines were
out of business. The way to do it is
It is common report that small boys
are allowed to play the machines in
certain places, and in one instance it
is related that a school boy was sent
down town by his widowed mother to
buy groceries and to pay a bill, but
the lad ran foul of a machine and lost
$7 of his mother's hard earned money.
M&ny men who can ill afford to lose
money are said to squander a large
part of their wages with these robbers.
It is understood the owner of the
machines is a young man who drop
ped into town, placed his machines
and now draws a weekly trifle of
something like $400, minus, probably,
the douceur customary In such cases.
Hie pays no taxes nor a dollar to help
the city, and yet proceeds on his way
smiling at the snap he has and the
suckers that abound in the town.
If a man comes into the town to sell
goods he is pr6mptly rounded up for a
license, yet this man comes along and
robs the people right and left and
unmolested. That the police are
aware of the presence of the machine
*s shown from the fact that in at least
one place the machines are ordered
turned toward the wall on Sunday,
while across the street, In two direc
tions, the merry wheels rattle around
Sundays as well as other days.
Few people are aware to what ex
tent these machines have cleaned up
the ready cash of a host of men
youths and boys.
In the opinion of many the slot ma
chines are but the stepping stdnes to

The prompt action of the mayor In
having his police close up the ma
chine-, is favorably commented on by
all but those who chose from contrari
ness to put vhemselves in the class
or open law breakers, and there is a
general expression that the owners
move the machines from the city or
stand arrest and confiscation and de
struction of their thieving outfits.
Of the twenty machines mentioned
yesterday It is said only three are
owned by residents of the city, so a
good bonfire would not materially hurt
local commerce and trade.
In speaking of the raid on the ma
chines Alderman E. G. Patterson said
in substance that he felt that the laws
should be administered without dis
crimination and that if the evil of
gambling was hurting the people why
was not something done to prevent
trie sons of prominent people from
getting drunk and making night hid
eous on the streets? These young
noys, he said, roamed the streets at
night ^at will and no one ever heard
oi an arrest of them, but because a
few slot machines were played trouble
must be made. He wanted to know
why a fight was made on one evil and

an undercurrent of opinion that this

be, The Tribune is not in the confi

such a move.

as stated before, The Tribune is not

nor posted on what anybody intends
to do. The Tribune Is opposed to

continue tc use its influence toward
their suppression in this city, that's
all there is to it.

DANGER IN DELAY,
KIDNEY DISEASES ARE
DANGEROUS FOR FARGO PEO
PLE TO NEGLECT.
THe great danger of kidney troubles
is that they get a firm hold before the
sufferer recognizes them. Health is
gradually undermined. Backache, head
ache, nervousness, lameness, soreness,
lumbago, urinary troubles, dropsy, dia
betes and Bright's disease follow in
merciless succession. Don't neglect
your kidneys. Cure the kidneys with
the certain and safe remedy, Doan's
Kidney Pills, which has cured people
right here in Fargo.
Geo. Hill, barber, under the Commer
cial bank, and living at 509 Front street,
north, Fargo, N. D., says: "I got more
benefit from the use of one or two
boxes of Doan's Kidney Pills than from
two hundred dollars worth of treat
ment from physicians. This may sound
strong, but I am merely stating the
facts. I had been nearly always sub
ject to kidney complaint and my work
necessitates a bending position which
caused a strain on the muscles of the
back and the kidneys as well. I found
this especially so three years ago when
working on the railroad between St
Paul and Portland. There were times
when my back was so sore and lame
that I could not get up from a chair,
without help unless I slid out, and then
it was torture to straighten up. The
kidney secretioqs were irregular and
annoying and caused me much embar
rassment. This condition continued in
spite of the treatment of doctors and
the plasters and various medicines I
used, until a fellow workman insisted
on me trying Doan's Kidney Pills.
got a box at Wilser's drug
store and the first few doses helped
me so much that I continued taking
them and improved every day until my
kidneys and back were sound, well and
healthy again. I am in better shape
now than I was for many years."
