HOVERSTAD WILL SOON IS8UE 8CHEDULE FOR THE WINTER SERIES OF SES SIONS—MANY ATTENDED MEET INGS HELD ALL OVER STATE LAST YEAR. Preparations are rapidly going for ward at the agricultural college for the opening of the winter session of the farmers' institute which will open Dec. 7 and the prospects for the meet ings are very promising. Supt. T. A. Hoverstad of the institute corps said In regard to the matter that a com plete schedule of meetings would soon be Issued. "Last year 89 institutes were held in the state of North Dakota," said Mr. Hoverstad. "In 233 sessions there was a total attendance of 38,000 peo ple. This large attendance can be at tributed to several causes. Roads, as a rule, were excellent. Stormy days were very few. Bad roads and stormy weather always reduce the attendance at the meetings. The business men of the town took unusuc.1 interest in the institutes. They helped in the ad vertising. Very often free dinners were served to the farmers who at tended the meetings. "The institute season will open about one month earlier than last year. We have now on file about 70 applications. In order to hold meetings in all sec tions of the state every year it will be necessary to make the institute season as long as possible. Profesor Thoma Shaw of Minnesota has already been engaged for this winter's circuit as a special lecturer. We consider ourselves fortunate in securing his services as other states were anxious to have his name on their list of In stitute speakers. "Institutes will be conducted on the same general plan as in previous years. New topics for discussion will be In troduced. A new edition of the in stitute annual is in process of prepar ation. Articles are being prepared es pecially for this edition which will be ready for distribution by Dec. 1. "The schedule for the winter circuit will soon be made out. All towns de siring an institute the coming winter should send in their applications as soon as possible. Commercial and farmers' clubs, private individuals or organizations may send in requests for meetings and the same will be considered by the board. It is desirable to hold meetings in localities where none were held last year, so as to dis tribute the work over the state as much as possible." Clothes pressed while yo«Jt nfc.it.

Ifioa, THE FARGO FOBTJM AND BAILY HEPUBLICAlf, FUNDS FOR THE im-STAli MEET COMMITTEE OP COMMERCIAL CLUB WILL MAKE EFFORT TO RAISE |360 TO PAY EXPENSES OF GRAIN GROWERS' CONVEN TION—-WILL MAKE CANVASS SOON. 19M committee of the commercial club, appointed some time ago to se cure subscriptions from the business men to make up the $350 guarantee made by the club to bring the Trl state Grain Growers' convention here on Jan. 19 to 23, 1909. will soon start making their rounds. Since the grain Krowers' conventions were inaugurated It has been the custom of the club to guarantee the requisite funds and the committees who have done the col lecting have always found it an easy matter to raise the money needed. The business men realize the im mense value this convention is to the city and are always willing to help It along and as it is now a flxed institu tion In this city they do not want to «i:e it go to some other city. The convention this year will be better than it has ever been and Pres. J. H. Worst of the agricultural college and also chief executive of the Trl state Grain & Stock Growers asso ciation has been at work for several weeks preparing the programme for this great meeting. He is now In Washington, D.

The way business picked up since election at the Farmers' Supply House would indicate that peo ple stopped eating for a time, to see, perhaps, if they could afford to eat. Today every thing is hustle and bustle at this famous house. The guaran teed pure food articles are piled ceiling high in the store house and basement. Cases upon cases, barrels upon barrels, bag upon bag. each filled with goodies suggestive of the com ing Thanksgiving and Christ mas season. In one section of this big store house will be found more than two tons of nuts—one ton being the famous soft shell walnuts, new crop, special ship ment. Ceres flour and granu lated sugar In sacks occupy a large area of floor space, while the new shipment of the re nowned whole rye flour, and whole wheat or graham is rap idly being diminished again be cause of the popularity of these goods. The American Club canned goods, of every variety, of approved purity seem end less in plies along the walls. Dried fruits in neat cases for family use are crowding ea£h other for room. The famous Paragon hams and bacons, of which the Farmers' Supply House sells such a large quan tity, seems to be here in such numbers as to supply the state. The name Farmers' Supply House is a misnomer in a way, as, while the bulk of the trade Is from farmers, there is also a large demand for the pure food goods at ten to thirty per cent saving, from private fam ilies and restaurants and hotels. 'Another secret of the success of this house and its growing busi ness is its watchful and liberal co-operative profit sharing plan, whereby a system for the distribution of valuable green trading stamps has been devis ed which are redeemable in costly premiums. A great many thousands of these stamps have already been given away by this house being evi dence of the appreciativeness of the people. In the sample room of the Farmers' Supply House is a sample of each article carried In the big warehouse. Here the customer may sit upon an easy chair and order from sample what he or she desires and the same will be packed and deliv ered the same day. Orders up to $5 are delivered free, and by phoning 855 the house wife can be supplied with all the good things to eat she may want and settlement may be made at the house upon delivery. Mail orders are filled In the same prompt manner. The system of receiving cash with order as sures all that no bad debts are piling up for the "good pay" to settle for. Also gives one the advantage of ten to thirty per cent saving over any other sys tem in vogue in the northwest. 1 T1 THURSDAY EVENING. WEDNESDAY CRIPPLE DRAWS HAD HIS FEET FROZEN AT MICHI GAN CITY LAST MARCH—18 A CHRONIC DRUNK AND VAGRANT AND WILL 8ERVE TIME IN TH£ COUNTY JAIL. Peter Shea is his name and for the second time Inside of two weeks he hobbled into Judge Ryan's court this morning on a pair of crutches, charged with being drunk and a vagrant. He is a man about 50 years of age. A physical wreck from excessive drink ing, penniless, friendless and appar ently almost hopeless. The first time he was arraigned before Judge Ryan he was quite defiant. He told his story, which has been substantiated in the principal facts, stating that he had his feet severely froxen at Michigan City last March, that he had been un able to work since then because the wound on one foot failed to heal prop erly and Is now a running sore. The police officials told him to go to the Cass county officials and get trans portation to Nelson county, as this is the county to which he belongs as a public charge, according to his story. The man promised to do this and Judge Ryan gave him his freedom, but he evidently did not like to tear him self away from Fargo and the vicinity of Moorhead, for be was picked up again last evening In a'terrible state of intoxication. This morning he was "down and out" and when Judge Ryan read the charge of vagrancy to him he pleaded guilty at once and was sentenced to serve thirty days in the county Jail. He will receive proper care and medi cal attention there and may be braced up at the expiration sufficiently to keep himself straight. A. C.

Th#y mat in Grand Forks yesterday morning and became fast friends— these two, Neal Brown and William Larson—and they liked each other so well that they decided to go west to gether. They got as far as Fargo and now Brown is minus a fine $40 over coat and $35 in cash and also his pal, Larson. They came to Fargo last evening and spent the night together in a rooming house. They were going to Missoula, Mont., where Larson said he had a claim and wanted Brown's company. This morning, however, Larson came to the conclusion that he did not like the crop of whisker3 that adorned Brown's features and sent him to a Front street barber shop to get them Shaved off. "Oh, say," said Larson as Brown was leaving him, "you won't need that overcoat while you are being shaved so lend it to me until you come out. I want to walk around a bit and it is rather chilly." Ho Brown shucked his garment and gave it to his dearly beloved friend forgetting to take a $35 roll of bills which was stowed away in one of the pockets. Larson is much Interested in the sights about the city, evidently, as he has failed to put In an appear ance and Brown is going about cold and hungry, his overcoat and money still in Larson's possession. "I don't think he has stolen the things," said trusty Brown at the Nor thern Pacific railroad depot this fore noon when he came there to get his grip and see if his missing friend had returned. "O, no, ne could not have done that for he was such a nice fellow and has When Brown described the man to Dan Costello, the N. P. depot police man, that officer recognized a "shady" character which had been hanging around a good bit. At least he thinks it is the man as Brown's description tallies in all respects with the fellow. Brown would not report the occur ence to the police force and swear out a warrant for hi friend as he believes fie will return with the miis ing garment and the money.
