was well respected by those who knew
her. She was the eldest daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Richard Sugg, being
about 13 years of age. She had been
sick for some time and her death,
though not entirely unexpected, cast
a gloom over the community. The
funeral services were held from the
church, the sermon being preached by
Rev. McConnehey. A large procession
of sorrowing friends and relatives fol
lowed the remains to the grave side
where Rev. McConnehey read the com

prayer and benediction. Interment
was made iti the' Argusville cemetery.

As was predicted In The Forum
Tuesday evening, the water commis
sion at Its meeting yesterday unani
mously decided to recommend to the
council that one or more artesian
wells be drilled ,and the request was
made that the sum of $1,500 be placed
in the hands of the commission with
which to do the work. The meeting
continued for two hours or more and
the question of water was discussed
in all ltf phases by different mem
Professor Wltlard of the
tural college was in favbr of remov
ing the water plant at once to somfs
higher ground where there would be
no danger of the plant being put out
of commission by reason of high
water, as was the case only a few
months ago, but this was opposed on
the grounds that it would cost a large
sum of money to do the work, and
it was stated that a pump could be
secured at a cost o£ $2,500 and in
stalled on the hill for emergency
Engineer CrabW of the committee
stated that the people of Fargo would
not be satisfied until a thorough test
was made on the artesian well propo
sition, and after this was done and
it was found that water could not b«
secured in sufficient quantities, then
the filtering system would be the next
io be tried. He stated that if artesian
wells were secured it would even then
be necessary to retnove the water
plant, and the same would be the case
in case the filtering system would be
installed, tout if the city continued to
use the water from the Red river as
now there would be no necessity for
the removal, as the emergency pump
could be used. Mr. Crabbe said that
he had given some attention to the
matter of a location for artesian wells,
but this matter will not be made pub
lic at the present time. It was the
sense of the meeting that the water
works be not moved until further in
vestigation on the part of the com
The filtering question was not offi
cially passed on, but was discussed.
Just where the artesian wells will be
located is not known, hut they will
be drilled as near the river as pos
sible, In order that it will be possible
to reach the water plant without
going to great expense, and Morton
Page was appointed a committee' to
investigate suitable sites as well aft
to take options on the same.
W.' A. Scott and Engineer Crabbe
were made a committee to look into
the practicability of using the exhaust
steam from the water plant for heat
ing purposes and to report at a meet
ing that will be called by the chair
man, Professor Willard. It is under
stood that Mr. Willard and other
members of the commission will be
at the council meeting on Monday
night next to report to that body as
to their recommendations.
Mrs. S. Joyce, 180 Sullivan atrfeet,
Claremont, N. H., writes: "About a
yewr ago I bought two bottles of Fol
ey's Kidney Cure. It cured me of a
severe case of kidney trouble of several
years' standing. It certainly Is a grand,
good medicine, and I heartily recom
mend It." H. H. Casselman, Lion drug
Washington, ,May committee
of experts has just' completed' count
ing all the "unused" money in the
vaults of the controller of the cur
rency at the treasury department. It
amounted to $176,000,000. The count
was ordered by Mr. RIdgely, the con
troller. In spite of the fact that the
money in the great vault where this
sort of money js kept has not been
counted for six years and that during
the period more than $3,000,000,000
has been issued from the vault, not
a cent of the money was missing, and
the account as kept by the bookkeep
ers of the issue division and the count
of the committee of experts agreed
to the cent.
Controller RIdgely was induced to
order the count because of a chance
thought that so long a time had
elapsed since the last count had been
made and of the always present pos
sibility of sheets of money going
astray notwithstanding the precau
tions that are taken to prevent it. It
Is a tribute to the care and faithful
ness of Mr. Eldridge, who has been
in charge of the vault throughout the
period, that everything was found in
such excellent condition. He is one
of the most tried and trusted employes
of the department, as he has been in
charge of this big money vault for
thirty years, through all changes in
the political complexion of the na
tional administration.
la Surprise to Eldridge.
The plan for the count was inigt
made known to Mr. Eldridge. The
committee walked into his office be
fore the hour when the time Jocks on
the vault permit the door to be
opened. They placed the seal of their
authority on the vault and the money
was doled out to Mr. Eldridge by the
committee. In two business weeks
that have passed since that time the
chief has not had access to the vaults.
The committee has checked th« money
for current nsen in and out of th«
VHult each succeeding day. This is

Congress passed an act appropriating
$5,000 to take up any of these notes

only $125 ever was used. It was never*
learned what became of the balance
of the package, but It is certain that
they were never offered for redemp

the system of checking the number
of notes is such that if one of the old
issues should be presented even at
this late day it would be discovered
before it passed to final redemption.

Talk Record It Fifty-ninth's.
The records made by clerks Of the
senate and house show that In the last
congress—.the Fifty-ninth—more talk
ing was done than in any other in the
histppy of the country. Thefr re
searches go back fourteen years, or to
the Fifty-second congress. The latter
congress filled 2,020 pages of the Con
gressional Record with its talk, as
against 4,810 for the Fifty-ninth. In
the Fifty-second congress, 10,123 bills
werfe introduced, but the Fifty-ninth
set a new figure with 25,897. The
Fifty-second congress was in session
340 legislative days and passed 398
public and 324 private bills. The
Fifty-ninth was in session 227 legis
lative days and passed 692 public and
G.248 private acts. Most of the meas
ures known as private acts are for
the correction of military records or
the grant of pensions. No congress
ever passed the number of bills that
were made into law as the Fifty-ninth.
It appears that such a thing as a dis
honorable discharge from the army or
navy, uncorrected by legislative act,
soon will be a positive curiosity.
Congress is riot only generous to the
nation's fighting men in the matter
of pensions but it is also charitable
in the matter of expunging from the
records anything set down against
theif conduct.
