Many ®ar*» p®QPle do not care if
meat prices are lip or down, because
they have found that "Minnesota"
macaroni and spaghetti, with their
delicious nut-like flavor, take the
place of meat very largely and are
more easily digested.
Good macaroni and spaghetti are
four times as nutritious as beef-steak,
and they are the best and most nour
ishing foods known. They can be
oasily prepared In many appetizing
W^ays and are suitable for the daintiest
SVncheon as well as the heartiest feast.
But if you want that rich, nut-like
Hkvor be sure and get the delicious
"Minnesota" brand macaroni or spag
hetti—made from the finest Northern
Xurum wheat, with all the nourishing
Gluten left in. It is easily digested
and never gets doggy. All good Fargo

meeting of the Crittenton circle for the
purpose of transacting business was
held last evening at the office of Dr.
Mae Sanders in the Security block. A
number of matters pertaining to future
work were considered and some com

members of the circle are doing a great
work every day and though it is of
that quiet nature which permits of
little publicity they have lost no opr
portunity to do good- More members

benefit and uplift of unfortunate girls

not attend the meetings and take part
in the disposal of the business a nice
way to express their appreciation of
what the others are doing would be
to mail in their $1 membership fee

able to do more. From the reports
presented at this meeting it was vety
