The Tri-State Grain Growers con
vention, always the big annual event
of Fargo during the year, will not be
the lone attraction this year, for many
gatherings will be held in the confines
of Fargo this week, which is indicative
of the ever growing popularity as a
convention city and central point.
Every year the grain growers pour
into the city in large numbers and are
always welcome. They come to
change ideas on the growing of their
crops and how best to improve and
make this country, the northwest—for
they come from the three states of
North and South Dakota and Minne
sota—the very best agricultural sec
tion of the United States. An ex
change of ideas is always educational
and the Grain Growers' convention in
Fargo is one of the greatest educa
tional conventions held to the United
States every year.
Other Big Events.
Along with the grain growers this
year are coming the northwestern
democrats and the Sunday school
workers of the Fargo district—which
includes the counties of Cass, Rich
land, Traill and Steele—and they are
all just as welcome. The citizens of
Fargo have opened every door to make
all this great number of visitors com
fortable during their stay in the big
gest little city in the world.
Considerable time has been spent in
preparing for the arrival of these
guests. The energetic president and
secretary of the Fargo Commercial
club and the officers of its affiliated
organizations, together with the cour
teous managers of all the hotels and
restaurants and the newspapers, to
gether with the committeemen in
charge of each of the conventions,
have left no stone unturned to make
this week one that will be long re
membered in the annals of the city's
history and an example of what Far
go is capable with the hope that this
Will be only the beginning of big un
Grain Growers Tomorrow'.
Promptly at 10 o'clock tomorrow
morning the Tri-State Grain Grow
ers' convention will start at the
Fargo operahouse. In the entire his
tory of this great and important as
sociation, it has never failed to start
promptly on the stroke of 10, and
President Worot is not a man to fail
to comply to a precedent which he
has once established. Consequently to
morrow the sessions of the great meet
ing will begin at 10 o'clock.
President Hardy of the Fargo Com
mercial club will deliver the address
of welcome and the response will be
made by Prof. C. G. Selvig of the
Crookston Agricultural college, at
Crookston, Minn. The day's pro
gramme is one of exceptional Interest
and has already been given In The
Forum so that nearly everyone is fam
iliar with its details, the speakers of
the day and their subjects.
Wednesday will be live stock day,
and on Wednesday evening President
Worst will deliver his annual address
and will be followed by President El
liott of the Northern Pacific railroad.
These are the two chief speakers of
the convention and their efforts will
be perhaps the greatest speeches de
livered at the Grain Growers. No one
can afford to miss them.
Horticulture day will be Thursday
and Friday, and will be given over
to miscellaneous subjects and a resume
of the entire week. Thursday will also
be one of the big days of the con
vention, as the Farm Managers' as
sociation will hold its convention at
the commercial club rooms on that
day. Woman's day will also be Thurs
Democrats Begin Wednesday.
The democrats of the northwest will
begin pouring into the city and taking
possession of the biggest little city in
the world Wednesday. All day long,
from the east and west, they will ar
rive from as far east as New Jersey
and Ohio, as far south as Iowa and
Nebraska, and as far west as Mon
tana, Idaho and Washington.
The big guns of the political pot
are expected and Wednesday night at
the prpheum theatre Gov. Judson Har
mon of Ohio, along with Senator Pet
tigrew of South Dakota, and Governor
Norris of Montana, and others, will be
lieard in big speeches.
Thursday the democrats will remain
in the city for another day of their
feast and that evening at Pi-
•w fie's hall, William Jennings Bryan of
Nebraska will be the chief speaker at
Sunday School Workers.

FARGO SEED HOUSE
Greatest Corn Show Ever Held
in N. D. Is Ready For
Continued From Page On*.
Here will be displayed the various
principles of moisture conservation in
the growing of corn and wheat.
Just opposite the main entrance, sd
that it will catch the eya of every
visitor the first thing on entering the
building, is the booth of demonstra
tion farms, which is one of the most
interesting and unique in the whole
show. The trimmings will be of green
and yellow, which is the prevailing
color scheme of the entire exhibi
The Farm, Stock and Home of Min
neapolis will probably have the largest
display in the entire building. It will
occupy fhe space of three booths and
will n» doubt be one of the chicf fea
tures of the show. Not all the decora
tions have been made yet, but it will
present a neat appearance in the morn
Mrs. Randlett, wife of the capable
director of the show, will conduct one
of the most unique booths in the show,
which will be of absorbing interest to
all the women visitors as well as the
men. Everything that a woman can
make out of corn will be found on dis
play in her booth. This will encom
pass most everything from corn husk
fugs to all the recipes for delectable
corn dishes for the table which are
so appetizing. Mrs. Randlett's booth
is trimmed in popcorn and fodder dec
orations made into appropriate and at
The Northern Seed Co. will be found
right next and in that will be found a
general line of farm seeds. The North
western Nursery Co. of Valley City Is
another concern whose booth will be
one of the features of the exhibition. It
will contain forest treets, fruit trees,
commercial orchard trees, ornamental
shrubbery and special attention will
be given to the landscape department
of that company.
Northrup, King & Co. of Minne
apolis will have a general line of farm
and garden seed presented to the pub
lic in a most attractive manner. W. O.
Olsen of Moorhead will also show a
fine line of seeds.
Red River Valley Exhibit.
Another one of the big features of
the show will be the fine exhibit of
the Red river valley that was shown
at the St Paul land show. This will be
under the personal direction of Henry
Amerland, who supervised the exhibit
at St. Paul. Everybody will be inter
ested in that display and should see
It for It was one of the prize booths
at St. Paul and won the admiration of
every eye there.
Magill & Co. will have an exhibit
presenting all sorts of corn varieties,
which will be something entirely dis
tinctive. A number of machinery ex
hibits will also attract considerable
attention. These will include the fine
displays of the J. I. Case Co., which
will contain a corn shredder, gasoline
engine and a road grader, and the In
ternational Harvester Co., which will
offer a general line of farm machinery.
Right next, and directly on one of
the two main aisles of the show room,
is the display of the American Steel
& Wire Co., in which will be found
all sorts of steel fencing and concrete
work. Near the entrance of the exhi
bition rooms the J. j. Case Co. has
fitted up a fine automobile exhibit
which has already attracted the at
tention of the many visitors who have
thronged the buildings.
The general exhibit Is onO tf the
most attractive features of the show
this year. It will occupy the main
space of the exhibition rooms at the
rear of the building. One of the clever
exhibits in this will be the imitation
log cabin, built entirely of eara of
corn by John Freyberger, chief of
police of LaMoure. The corn is North
western Dent and was raised by Mr.
Freyberger on his farm in That section
of the state.
By this evening a big electric sign
will be placed over N. P. avenue in
front of the Case building, calling the
attention of the public to the location
of the show. The frame work of this
sign will be made entirely of corn, so
that it will be one of the novelties of
both the show and the convention.
This has been pronounced the most
successful corn show ever held in
North Dakota, even before the open
ing of the doors of the exhibition to
the general public, and the promoters
have every reason to feel proud of
their attempt and achievement.
The building and space is donated
company together with
the heating and lighting of the place,
something which is very much appre
ciated by everyone In connection with
The splendid prise of $1,000 offered
by the First National bank to the ^rn
growers is so well known over the
state and in all quarters of the north
west, that it does not need special
mention here to let the public know
about It. This act of generosity on
the part of the First National is done
purely in an educational spirit and in
the effort to encourage the general
growth of corn in this state.

likely contests by the Fargo Com
pjercial club and by the Fargo clear

GRESSIVE SPIRIT OF NORTH
DAKOTANS MANY IMPROVE
MINTS FOR 1912.
Weather cold enough to suggest lit
tle in the building line, save the erec
tion of a larger coal bin for next year,
perhaps, has apparently not acted as
a damper on the plans of energetic
North Dakotans and in many of the
towns about the state plans were made
in the past week looking to important
and needed improvements.
It Is noticeable in the building an
nouncements that much attention is
being paid to the erection of new
schoolhouses and the improving of the
old educational buildings. Many towns
will expend considerable sums in the
building of new high schools this year,
among them being Casselton. This
hustling little city recently voted *37,
000 bonds for the erection of a new
high school building. .'The school
board will expend about $50,000 in this
improvement, which will be one that
Casselton has been looking forward to
for some time and which will raise that
city's educational stock considerable.
Sanborn is another of the good towns
of the state that will line up with
those taking seats in the improvement
band wagon. Here an addition of four
rooms will be built to the present
schoolhouse. The work will be com
menced as soon as school closes in the
spring and will be rushed to comple
tion. Plans for -the addition are in the
Public buildings about the state are
also to come in for a marked share in
1912 improvements as well as the ed
ucational buildings. One of the most
important improvements proposed Is
that of the new Pembina county court
house at Cavalier. Architects have
drawn plans for the new county house
and jail that will cost approximately
The churches of North Dakota, too,
will come in for some improvements
and a few new houses of worship will
be erected. This state is fortunate in
having among its churches some of the
finest in the country, but there is still
room for much improvement in this
particular department. In the week
passed it was announced that Stanley
will have a new church. This struc
ture will be put up by the Baptist con
gregation. It will be a brick building
and modern in every detail.
One great Improvement that la be
ing given wide attention in this state
and one which will be a feature In the
upbuilding of this section is that of
parks and playgrounds. In many
flickertail towns, where only a few
years ago the stranger was welcomed
by a view of miles of prairie and most
likely a handful of dust in the eye and
that's about all, blocks of parked
grounds and boulevards now greet the
visitor and the youth of the place have
their innings on playgrounds second
to none in the northwest. Civic or
ganizations in many of the little cities
of the state have taken up the park
and playground idea and their efforts
in almost every Instance have met
with instant support and substantial
backing. Havana, one of the liveliest
young cities, was recently presented
with ten acres of ground at the north
end of the principal business street
for use as a park.

the inception of the blaze.
Within the past five years Mr. Rood
