No other place has as delightful a climate as North Dakota, and no city in the state has as many attractive features for the tourist and visitor as Fargo. Our excellent hotel accommodations are not excelled by those of any city In the entire north west. Our park, while not as large as some, equals in beauty any park to be found anywhere. The natural trees and conveniently placed benches where any stranger may sit beneath the cooling shade and pass hours away, are very attractive to those who are able to come to Fargo in the summer time. During the last year Duluth, Su perior, Virginia and other north Min nesota cities were continually filled with tourists from Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois and other middle states. These people came for the sole purpose of escaping the great, heat wave, which every year sweeps over the Mississippi valley, and this year it is quite possible for Fargo to secure fsssf y* •IU m»j* SCON* irhAs±ir i'«MFANY WHO!

THE FARGO FORUM 'AND DAILY REPUBLICAN, WEDNESDAY EVENING f* JWt Make Every Dollar Yon Spend Work lora Greater Northwest and Greater Fargo. By Brcvfng From Firms Most Closely Identified With tl«e Interests ot This Section (Employ ing Labor and Capital Here) You Boost for the Greater Development of the Agricultural as Well as Commercial and Industrial Development of North Dakota. PIONEER LIFE INSURANCE CO. AmoDg the Important insurance com panies of North Dakota, none occupies a higher place in the estimation of the peo ple, than does the Pioneer Life Insurance Co. of North Dakota. Their business Is supplying of safe and conservative life insurance to the residents of this state, Minnesota and Idaho, at the lowest pos sible cost consistent with safety. This company was organized In the fall of 1907, and are now located In one of the hand somest buildings in Fargo, at corner of First avenue north and Roberts street. Durlug 1010-11 this company wrote more business in North Dakota than any other insurance company operating in the state. They have a splendid office equipment and an excellent agency force, employing al together about 200 people. Their assets In proportion to liabilities Indicate that the company is as strong as the strongest. All of their death losses have been paid on the same day that the proof was made. They have a branch office located at Mos cow, Idaho, where the business of that state is taken care of. The stock in this company is held by North Dakota men, and It Is distinctly a North Dakota Institution. The active heads of the firm are J. J. Feckler, formerly a banker, secretary and acting manager. T. G. Hughos, second vine president and general mannger of agonts. They supply one of the best policies writ ten by any insurance company and the premium paid by then remains in North Dakota* NORTH DAKOTA HARNESS CO. This firm Is engaged in the manufacture of harnesses, collars and jobbers of sad dlery goods in North Dakota, Minnesota, South Dakota and Montana. Their plant was established in Fargo In 1897, and has grown steadily ever since, and their In crease has been such that it was necessary for them to occupy four stories. 50x140 feet, built expressly for their business, and equipped with all modern machinery iu the manufacture of harness. They employ sixty people steadily, and Is the firm that makes the harness business the leading manufacturing Industry in this state. They are without a peer in their line, and the goods that they manufacture have an es tablished reputation among the dealers of their territory, as being the very best to be secured In any market. They have no branches and all of their business is trans acted from the Fargo office. C. O. Smith and W. W. Smith are the active heads of the firm, and their long experience in this line permits them to anticipate the needs of their customers and to be alv^ys first with everything In harness and saddlery. All of the members of the Arm are active in public affairs of this city, and they are always to be found in the front ranks of the contributors and boosters for any pro position that will be of benefit to Fargo of the state of North Dakota. Farg Summer her proportionate share of these cas ual visitors by holding out to the world our many advantages. One thing that is attractive is the purity of the air and the unusual number of sunshiny days, which \s granted us each year. The railroad folders speak of the topaz blue of the Colorado skies, but any day in Col orado is no better than the average day in North Dakota. Situated as Fargo is in a sweeping bend of the Red River of the North, surrounded by slightly rolling country to the south and west, we are protected from what ever heat waves may sweep over the state at large, and it is very rare in deed when our hottest days in sum mer prove at all uncomfortable to the. visitor from the middle states. The heat waves are alleviated by an invig orating breeze, and to one who comes from the moist sodden atmosphere of Illinois, our climate is a delightful change. As an attraction for visitors this summer, we will be able to offer a number of amusements and public gatherings, which will no doubt at tract thousands of people and our citi zens will hold their best foot foremost to see that they are properly enter tained. Our new filtration plant which giveb an added advantage for pure soft water for drinking purposes while the paved streets and uniform good roads will lend added zest to the enjoyment of the fortunate owner of a motor car.

Inside of a month a new boat house will be erected on the banks of the river near the hospital, where a number of boat owners and canoe en thusiasts will keep their water vehicles stored ready for use at all times. The building will be 40x20 feet., and will hold thirty canoes, the same will be built of galvanized iron over wood frame. The Red river affords many beautiful stretches of water, and it is possible to go quite a distance from Fargo in a large motor launch—two or three of which will be in commis sion during the summer. With these advantages to offer, would it not be a good policy to arrange at least a week's time In Fargo during the heat ed term? What better advertising could Fargo have in the future, than to have a number of people who had spent an enjoyable vacation period in this city, tell their friends about our many beauties and the salubrious climate which awaits them in North Dakota. Citizens are gained more rapidly by personal conversation with people who have visited the country that they are looking toward, than by any other manner, and if it were pos sible to have three or four thousand visitors here for two weeks during the summer it Is a practical certain ty that the beauties of our city and climate would so impress them that it would send hundreds of permanent residents to J^orth Dakota. This suggestion is worth trying out at any rate, and it will cost our peo ple but little time and trouble to send a letter to acquaintances asking them to come to Fargo for their summer vacation..
