Ittftffo T. M. C. A. workers are al
ways glad to hear from "Dad" John

"dormitory boys* and elected chair
man of the first organization among
the steady roomers. He is a brother
of Mrs. R. M. Pollock of this city and
is stationed at Alpena, Mich., where
he holds an important federal posi
tion in government construction work.
Th# followig from The Alpena

"The Boys' club of the Presbyterian
church is fast learning various arts
surprising to themselves.
"Not. very long ago their leader,
John Corse, assisted them in building
a coal bin in the basement of the
i church. That was all right. The coal
bin proved a good thing.
"TLast night the boys were unable
to participate in their usual games,
lest the decorations the ladies had for
their bazaar should be disturbed and
the ladies had said nothing must hap
pen those decorations.
i "But something else was there the
ladies had not said not to disturb—
•, and those were the used dishes they
had not had time to wash since the
bazaar and lunch aturday after
"Mr. Corse put the proposition mild
ly, first asking the boys how they
would like to surprise their mothers.
Everyone was eager to learn how he
might. So. Mr. Corse suggested wash
ing and putting away those dishes.
"Only one apron could be found for
the ten hoys, but there were no girls
to look on, anyway. It did not take
long for them to have everything in
tip top shape.
"The boys were not anxious to have
the public know their usefulness in
household duties lest they would be
asked to practice it more frequently,

Williston, N. D., Dec.1T.—That Wil
liston Is one of the largest primary
grain markets in the northwest there
is little doubt. Figures obtained from
the local elevators and grain men es
tablish this fact.
Nearly a Million*
Up to last Wednesday at noon nearly
1,000,000 bushels of grain had been
marketed at Williston out of the past
summer's crop, and the grain still con
tinues to pour in by the dozens of
wagon loads. When asked for an es
timate as to how much of the total
crop had been marketed hero the grain
men all expressed an opinion that only
about one-third has been brought in
and sold in the local markets.
Reach Three Millions.
These statements would indicate
that from 500,000 to 3,000,000 bushels
will be the amount to be marketed
here this year. The elevator men say
that very little grain has been brought
in from McKenzie county across the
river, about 15 per cent from this
source. As soon as the river closes
up this grain will begin to pour in
rapidly to the Williston market.
So far little trouble from car short
age has been experienced. On one or
two occasions the elevators were
blocked but generally they have been
able to handle the large business. Cars
were being loaded at all the elevators
but the grain has been coming in
about as fast as it can be loaded out.
Once the elevators are full a car or
so or even a half dozen cars make
little impression. Railway officials say
that to date about 400 cars of grain
have been shipped out.
Totals So Far.
According to figures obtained at the
local elevators the totals to date are
Mil] elevator f00,000
Farmers' elevator ... 120,00
fity elevator ..120,000
Victor elevator 62,000
Independent elevator J126.000
Hanson elevator 55,000
McCabe Bros, elevator (est) 65,000
River market —.
The totals Include all grain handled,
flax, wheat and barley. Wednesday
wheat and flax were selling at the low
est mark touched this season. Wheat
was quoted at 65 cents and flax at
51.01. The highest reported earlier in
the fall was wheat 75 cents, and flax
$1.51. This shows an average price of
70 cents for wheat and 51.26 for flax
during the past months.
Reports from Minneapolis are to the
effect that North Dakota wheat is
pouring into the markets at such a
rate that storage capacities are taxed.
The section of the state around Wil
liston is certainly producing its share.

W&hpeton, N. D., Dec. 17.—A series
of negotiations culminated Sunday in
the union, from Jan. 1, 1913, to Oct. 15,
1913, of the Wahpeton Congregational
and Methodist churches. Sentiment to
that end had been developing for a
year or more, and last spring a com
mittee had been appointed by the Con
gregational people to confer with the
Methodists on the subject, but noth
ing tangible had resulted.
In October, however, the Congrega
tional pastor, Rev. E. D. Gallagher,
accepted a call to a church in the Bit
ter Root country, and the Congrega
tionalists appointed a second com
mittee to confer with the Methodists.
The result was that a basis of union
was agreed upon substantially as fol
Rev. C. P. Sew re y, the Methodist
pastor, is to be the joint pastor of the
two churches. Services will be held
jointly during the month of January in
the Congregational church, February
in the Methodist, and so on. The pas
tor will reside in the Methodist parson
age, and in lieu of thai service by the
Methodists the Congregationalists will
pay at the rate of J100 per annum
more to the joint expenses than the
Methodists do. The young peoples' so
cieties will hold joint meetings in the
same building that the church services
for the month are being held. The Sun
day schools, and all others of the
church organizations, will be kept op
erating separately. Each church is to
select one usher, and these two are to
serve at all of the church services, ir
respective of the buildings in which
they are held. The choir is to. be a
joint organization, serving in both
churches. Further joint expenses are
to be the janitor cost and music
charges, and for these the two churches
are to pay share and share alike. Oth
erwise each church is to pay its cost
of heating, light, water rent, and re
pairing. Each church keeps up its
separate organization and lists of sub
scribing supporters. The two church
treasurers constitute a joint finance
committee, to receive and pay out
money on account of the pastor's sal
ary, janitor service and music ex
penses. Loose plate money collected
at the church offerings also goes into
the hands of the joint finance commit
The votes In favor of this basis of
union were almost absolutely unanim
ous. The Congregationalists have &
resident membership of 100 and the
Methodist sixty. It is hoped that the
nine months' union will demonstrate
a higher grade of efficiency in the
churches, work with less difficulty in
getting purely volunteer work done,
and that a reduced cost of operating
will make a considerable sum available
for the highest work of christian

the pros and cons of the proposition
were thoroughly discussed. Mr. Wil

A committee was appointed to con
fer with the directors of the Farmers'
Elevator Co. in regard to putting in
the plant and furnishing electricity for
the business houses and for street
lighting purposes. It is understood
that the elevator company will install
the system if it can be made to pay.
The other proposition spoken of was
that of bonding the village for a sum
sufficient to put in a plant capable of
handling lights enough for the whole
town and also to purchase fire appar
atus. The issuance of bonds would, of
course, be up to the voters at &n elec
tion held for that purpose.

GU8 BJORNSEN DRANK FATAL
DOSE OF CARBOLIC AQJD AT
Devils Lake, N. D., Dec. IT.—De- i
spondent over money losses in gamb
ling, Gus Bjornsen, a tailor In the
Halgren shop, committed suicide some
time between midnight and this morn
ing by taking carbolic acid. Bjorn
sen was found at 7 o'clock by the
repair man who, on entering the shop
found him lying on the floor in front
of the door, cold in death. Bjornsen
had been drinking yesterday and was
undoubtedly under the influence of
whiskey when he committed the deed, i
Employeg in the Halgren shop say that i
he had been gambling and losing all
that he was able to earn and that he
was heard to make the threat that he
he would kill himself if his luck
didn't change. H. N. Halgren, pro
"prietor of the shop, knows little about
the man, who came from Minneafo
lis about five Weeks ago. He was a.
first-class tailor. The question of how
he got into the shop is one that
neither Mr. Halgren nor the employes
are able to solve, as Bjornsen was
given no key and everything this
morning was found in order, no win
dow open or door lock broken. The
door was found locked and the elec
trie lights on by the repair man on
arriving. Two keys were found on
the man, and it is thought that one
of them gave him entrance to the
gambling den which he had been fre
quenting. An investigation is to be
made which will disclose startling
facts, declared Mr. Halgren. A bot
tie half filled with carbolic acid, which
is used in the shop, was found on
the table, and it is thought that the
man, after taking the poison, went
after a drink of water. The water pail
was near the door, where he was ov
ercome and fell. The deceased has a
brother In Minneapolis.
