THE NEW 1913 CADILLAC ROADSTER—If it is a possible thing,
we will show the 1913 Roadster at the Tri-State Grain Growers' Convention
jf in January. We may not be able to obtain one in time.
We believe that you will heartily second our statement—as soon as you
see this Roadster—that it is the smoothest, cleanest cut, swiftest, easiest
riding, quietest running Roadster ever offered to the public.
Racy, quick, speedy, and powerful, it still has that Cadillac air of dis
tinctiveness peculiar to the Cadillac, so sought after by other designers and
so seemingly impossible to imitate.

Bismarck, N. D., Nov. 27.-—Dr.
W. Robinson of Garrison, Is in the
city to attend a meeting of the Live
Stock Sanitary board of which he Is
a member. Questioned as to whether
threshing was about completed in the
vicinity of Garrison Mr. Robinson re
plied that no flax had been threshed
and that at least 50 per cent of the
wheat and other small grains remained
Mr Robinson expressed himself as
being well satisfied with the decision
of the supreme court regarding the di
vision of McLean county. He admitted
that in the event of the county of
Stevenson being organized and Garri
son being made the county seat, busi
ness men of his town would be better
satisfied and a larger volume of busi
ness would be transacted there, but
said that in his judgment the major
ity of the taxpayers throughout the
county were against division for the
'reason that two counties meant an
other set of offices and other addi
tional expenses to the taxpayer that
he did not care to assume.

Could you do a better act than to send
this notice to some poor sufferer of

Crookston Times: A man giving
the name of Grant E. Baxter, either
a hop fiend, crazy or just plain and
very smooth crook, managed to hood
wink Leo Baer and County
Hagen yesterday from 10 a. m. ttU
about 6 p. m., when Mr. Baer became
suspicious and unmasked the impost*
er, who is now lying in the county jail
on a chargc of vagrancy till Friday,
when his hearing is set.
Played Lodge Game.
Yesterday morning about 10 o'clock
the stranger entered the Boston
store and inquired if a Mr. Braaten
had been there asking for him. Leo
Baer came forward and the man ex
tended his hand, gave Mr. Baer a fra
ternal grip, and introduced himself
as Grant E. Baxter. He retired to a
corner of the store and gave proper
high signs of a secret order, con
vincing Mr. Baer that he was o» k.,
as far as bein* posted on secret
work was concerned.
Murdered Man to Protect Home.
Baxter then told Mr. Baer that
he was In deep trouble—that the
night before he had discovered a hired
man on his farm near HillsboTO, N.
D., had caused domestic trouble, and
In a rage had hit him over the head
with a milk stool, killing him instant
ly, and then fled to Crookston in fl
friend's automobile.
All he wanted was that Mr. Baer
should get him the best attorney ho
could to secure a divorce at once. Mr.
Baer took him to the office of County
Attorney Hagen, where he repeated
his story after making a deal to se
cure the divorce and giving Mr. Ha
gen a check for $250 as half payment
for his services.
County Attorney Drew Picture*.
He gave Mr. Hagen the details of
the killing and the county attorney
drew pictures of the hen house, the
barn, the residence and other out
buildings and questioned Baxter
closely as to distance, etc.
Wanted Auto Trip.'1
Baxter then proposed that last,
evening he, Mr. Baer and Attorney
Hagen gel an auto and go to Hills
boro after dark, settle with his wife
for $10,00 or $20,000 so that she would
not fight the divorce case, as he was
not desirous of humiliating his
daughter, who, he claimed, was a
teacher in the Fargo schools.
Mr. Hagen said the trip must be
postponed till Friday as he had to
go to St. Paul last night and advis
ed his client to lie low and keep out
of sight till then.
Well Togged Ouju
Baxter said the police here had
probably been notified of the killing
and he wanted to get some other
clothes to appear on the street, so
he changed his slouch hat and duck
coat for Leo Bacr's perfectly good
overcoat and hat.
Baxter asked to call Hillsboro up
and find if he was not o. k. This
Mr. Hagen did, and discovered that
Grant E. Baxter was a wealthy .farm
er, perfectly responsible.
Wanted More Clothe*.
After the divorce complaint had
been drawn and sworn to, Baxter re
turned to MS*. Baer and wanted him
to endorse a. check for $250 as he.
wanted to pay Mr. Baxter $100 for hir
trouble and get a new outfit of clothes
for the other $150.
Mr. Baer backed up .on this, and
Baxter then tendered a check for $50,
asking $10 in cash to tide him over
for the night.
Mr. Baer continued scenting a
mouse and finally phoned Mr. Hagen
to telephone to HUlsboro and find out
If any one had been killed or any
special variety of h— raised.
Mr. Hagen did so and discovered
everything peaceful about that burg.
Mr. Baer then murmured, "fon Javelin
fobunda," and telephoned Chief Eck a
description of the man. Captain Nel
son located the murderous Baxter in
Brink's saloon, where he was trying
to sell turkeys for future delivery, and
toted him off to jail, from which place
Mr. Baer recovered his dress overcoat
and hat.
Baxter dismissed Messrs. Baer and
Hagen from his mind at once an/1
offered to give Officer Godbout a plAt
showing where he had a fortune bur
ied in Montana, in event that he (Bax
ter) should die during the night.
His case will be called Friday and
in the meantime Chief Eck believe*
the man, while he may be nutty now,
has been a very clever crook. County
Attorney Hagen still has his plat of
the Hills-boro henhouse as a memento
of the occasion and also has the
check for $250.
Baxter is six feet tall, weighs 180
pounds, has short cropped mustache
and gray hair, and plays hi* part well.
