Mr. Pox Terrier was a pas senger on the Great Northern train last night, en route to Kansas City, Mom with its master. Just what was attractive in Fargo cannot be related, owing to the fact that the little animal refuses to be interviewed or talk for publication, but nevertheless when the train stopped at the Great Northern depot the canine left the car and dis appeared. The animal was missed at once by Its guardian and mistress and before the train pulled out Captain Dahlgren was informed that the dog made its escape from the train and was running at large in the city. The speaker at the other end of the telephone gave her name as that of Mrs. Van Vatten of Kansas City. She requested the police to look for the dog and send It by express, C. O. D., as soon as it was located. A full de scription of the dog was furnished, and early this morning one of the officers located the dog and placed it under arrest.

NEW RAILROAD RATES I They Became Operative Nov. 15 artd Will Not Damage the Far i 90 Jobbers. IPftde* W^w adjustment oiWfelgflit rates.In Minnesota, to take effect on Nov. 17, the schedule is a material re duction, as compared with the former tion, as compared with the 'former rates in that state. The reduction in Minnesota natur ally reduces the rates from the jobbing centers of that state to North Dakota points, but this will have no harmful effect on the jobbing interests of this city, as the tariffs will be so adjusted that Fargo jobbers will profit by the reduction, both in and out of Fargo and already a tariff is in effect from Fargo to points in Minnesota, which is based on the new Minnesota sche dule and is favorable to the shipper of this city. It has been stated, but erroneousl that such a tariff was not in effec while it was actually one of the fire of the new tariffs issued. It has also been stated that th twin city jobbers would have an ad vantage over local jobbers which the have never enjoyed before. This i also a mistake the railroads center ing here fully realize the importanc of Fargo as a distributing center an being friendly toward the jobbers her for the fair treatment and liberal pat ronage they have enjoyed are so ad justing their schedules that no los will accrue to the jobbers and the will be in better position to enter th field of competition than before. One reason for this is that the rate from eastern terminals to all point are now based on the actual mileage A vast amount of work has' been done by the commercial club in con nection with this rate proposition th retailers will share equally with th jobbers in the benefits of the reduf tion, as the first-class rate from th twin cities has been reduced from 6 cents per hundred weight to 54 an one-tenth cents—all other classes ctol respondlngly.
