In a test of the burning qualities made in the commercial club rooms yesterday by an impartial committee Perfection oil, manufactured by the Standard Oil Co., and retailed in Fargo at 15 cents by the local merchants, over one of its rivals, was demonstrat ed to the satisfaction of all those pres ent. For some time a controversy has been carried on here relative to the respective values of the Rosein oil, a product of the Marshall Oil Co. and the Perfection oil of the Stand ard. Finally some of the local groc crymen decided to give the matter a fair test and Invited the representa tives of the two companies to be pres ent and witness the experiment. The committee in charge, consistlnp of. P. J. Bergqulst, O. S. Hadeland, W B. Howland and John Stanford, ac companied by T. W. Jackman, stat oil inspector, Manager Rodman of th local branch of the Marshall Oil and R. A. Thomson of the Standard Oil Co., visited the store of P. J. Bere qnlst and took sampies of both th. Perfection and Roseine oils from tank lit of which oil was being drawn supply customers of the store. Thi ommlttee went to the Fargo Grocerv \.'s establishment and secured an other sample of Roseine oil. Armed with these they proceeded to the com nerclal club rooms. Here four lamps ach containing about eight ounces of 11, were filled, two with Roseine and two with Perfection oil. The wicks were carefully trimmed so that they would be exactly alike and the lamps lighted at 11 a. m. The lamp chimneys were provided with lines for measuring the size of each flame and the test was for the purpose of determining the burning quality of the oils as shown by the #ize of the flame, its clearness and bril liancy. All of the lamps continued to burn for six hours but the lamps con taining Perfection oil gave a much larger and better flame than those burning Roseine. At 5:14 the first lamp, which was one containing Ros eine oil, went out, while its companion, containing the same quantity of Per fection oil, continued burning for 13 minutes longer, giving convincing proof of the better lasting qualities of Perfection oil. An examination of the two wicks, made after both lamps had bunnedr out, -showed- that that contain ing Perfection oil was the least char red of the two. All those who witnessed the test including the members of thfc eotrtmlt tee, seemed convinced that it was a Clear demonstration of the superior practical value of Perfection oil.

It cost Frank Smith, a young man ilvlftg Tft northern Minnesota, just •$4 S1 3-®- cents for every hour he was in Moorhead and Fargo. Smith came to this, city with $118 yesterday morn ing at 9 o'clock and left this morning at 9 o'clock for his home without a single $pnt. dUpon his arrival here he fell In nwtlrwo men who decoyed him across -the creek, and upon reaching one of the booze camps over the Red, he wanted to act the part of a good fellow and treated his supposed friends. When lie woke up later in the day -he found himself In the Moor head jail, charged with the theft of a watch. One of the fellows who was with him, after he became doped, re ported that Smith took a watch from him. Chief Wade, late yesterday aft ernoon, brought Smith to Fargo, the fellow being in a dazed condition. The watch reported to have bejen taken was found in a local pawnshop, and this morning when Smith recovered from the effects of his knockout drops he told Chief Wade that he bought thi watch from the fellows, and after hiy money was taken from him he pawn ed the watch to get some money to home with. The complaining witness, .who charged Smith with stealing the watch, failed to put In an appearance and Smith was released from the city prison and ordered to return home.

The Austrian emperor has more titles^than any other monarch. He is a king nine, times over and a duke eighteen times. "The Perfection oil holds up the flame much better than its rival," nai«l O. S. Hadeland, "and judging from this and the fact that it burned longer than the Roseine, I should say that it was the better oil." P. J. Bergquist expressed a similar opinion, saying that the Perfection rave a larger flame and a greater vol ume of light. State Inspector T. W. Jackman did not care to discuss the matter in de tail. He said, however, that In the test he Standard product certainly had the rest of It. "I did not arrive until' some time ifter the test was started, and so can .iot speak from a thorough knowlede:' all conditions," said Professor Lndd the A. C., who was present, "but 1 -hould say that the test apparently 'hows that the Perfection oil is the iest. However, I should like to nrnik the experiment for myself all the So saying he placed a small quan tty of coloring matter in a large vial containing some of the sample oil and -stirred the mixture vigorously. In a moment the 4-otl~ tion oil or one-sixteenth of a gallon That quantity burned thirteen min utes longer than the same amount of the Roseine, so it is evident that a gal lon of our oil would burn 208 minutes or over three hours longer than a gal lon of the other."

"Any oil can be colored in that way," said Manager William W. Nicholas "We can furnish any grocer who de •ires to use it with the necessary col oring matter and he can put a sign in his window, 'oil colored while you wait.'

Enough Hard Luotu Lancia, the noted Italian automo bilist, was asked the other d:»y by a reporter if he did not think motor rac ing too dangerous. "Dangerous—yes," M. Lancia replied. "Too dangerous—no. For nothing that benefits mankind—and automobiles benefit mankind inexpressibly—is too dangerous for a man to undertake. "I have a good deal of contemut for men who are not brave to the ooiut of rashness. I am like a highwayman who held up a gasoline runabout on the outskirts of Rome. "This highwayman stopped the run about with a shot in the air. Then he ran forth from the tomb that had con cealed him—the holdup happened on the Applan way—and found, to his surprise, only a woman in the little car. 'Where, madam, is your husband?' he demanded sternly and suspiciously. 'He's under the.seat,' she answered flushing. 'Then,' said the highwayman, *1 won't take nothing. It's bad enough to have a husband like that, without l»e ing robbed into the bargain." Clyde Fitch at a dinner in Phil^del* phia, praised the originality of certain French playwrights.

Chicago Chronicle: A book agent who had been canvassing the girls employed in the linen department of big downtown hotels came to grief In front of the Victoria hotel. He had just emerged from the main entrance of the hotel when his case opened and all of his books fell on the sidewalk Three packages of tobacco which had been snugly tucked under the book in the left-hand corner of the case also were precipitated and while scores of pedestrians commented on the plight of the unfortunate book agent the lat ter was so embarrassed that he experi enced much difficulty in picking the ijxioks out of the mire. Two fashionably dressed women who ^had alighted from an automobile trip *ped over the books as they made tljeir ^vay to the entrance to the hotel and jtheir scathing denunciation of the un-' fortunate book agent and his wares jwas not pleasing to hear. After he •had groped about In the mud for ten or fifteen minutes the agent finally succeeded in replacing the books in his case and started north on Michi gan avenue. In addition to fastening securely the straps he also wrapped a heavy cord about the case. "That's the third time I've seen those same books spill over the side walk this afternoon," said a cabman, "and each time in front of a hotel.
