CROOK IMPERSONATED PARMER
AND ORDERED WIFE'S TOMB
STONE, THEN ASKED FOR LOAN
OF $5 TELEPHONE LOCATED
FARMER AT HOME.
A man giving his name as N. J.
Hetland walked into the office of the
Dakota Monument Co., yesterday and
asked to look at some monuments. He
said that he was a farmer near Hope,
and that he wished the tombstone to
place over the grave of his wife.
The stranger looked the monuments
over very carefully, and talked intelli
gently of the quality of the stone, the
design, etc. He took his time, and
finally selected a stone valued at $550.
He gave careful directions as to the
cutting of it, etc., and said he would
have his men take it from the train
to the cemetery.
Then, the transaction completed, he
said that he was short of money, be
ing in town with a carload of horses,
and requested that the monument
company advance him $5. He would
return the amount, and send a check
for the monument, he said, when he
got back to Hope.
He was told that if he would return
in an hour or two they would have
tWe money for him. He promised to
do so, and, in tho meantime, the bank
at Hope was called by telephone. They
said that there was a farmer by that
name living near Hope, and gave a
description of the man which tallied
with that of the stranger, except that
Hetland had a finger missing, and the
stranger did not.
The banker had not heard, however,
that Hetland had lost his wife, nor
that he was in Fargo. He was then
located on his own farm, and the hoax
was evident. When the stranger re
turned to the office of the monument
company, he was confronted with the

To The Forum: I read with con
siderable surprise a few remarks made
by Lincoln Steffens in his recent
speeches in this city, anent the Am
erican Federation of Labor.
The American Federation of Labor
now is 2,500,000 strong and has be
come a highly conservative body that
has aided the skilled workmen of the
country to better wages, happier
homes, educated their children and
lifted the skilled worker to the level
of the professional classes.
This has been done under difficulties
and represents about all that can be
done by any body of men banded to
gether for material betterment.
We are nroud of what we have ac
complished and until Steffens or oth
ers* of his ilk can produce an organi
zation that can go us better he has
little license to criticize or condemn.
As to the organization of the com
mon laborers, the Federation«of Labor
heartily approves and aids wherever
possible—but it has little use for the
present I. W. W. movement with its
"No God, No Country" slogan.
With the socialists the federation
has no quarrel. There are good union
men from their ranks, and we believe
that when Steffens includes them with
his I. W. W.'s and anarchists that he is
quoted as saying, will solve the social
problems, he is doing them a great in
Steffens' hot air regarding city gov-
ernment has the right sound and on
Steffens* talk about the social re
juvenation of the country indicates
that he is a philosophical anarchist
and the heads of our educational insti
tutions that allowed a man of his er
ratic mental equipment to speak be
for the students of the colleges are in
a degree reprehensible.
North Dakota had an experience
with Steffens* saviors of society—the I.
W. W. at Miiiot last summer—and
have some idea of what the organiza
tion is like.
A large invasion is promised this
year and perhaps the citizens of Far

close quarters what these heroes are

Pres. J. H. Worst of the agricultural
college. "This is especially true of
small farmers—those managing from

farm—the sort of farmers that will
survive when the last bonanza farmer
goes out of the farming business.
"Farmers have need of consultation.
The farmers' club affords this oppor
tunity. The wives and grown up
children of farmers also should join
these cluhs and participate in their
deliberations. In this way a genuine
community spirit can be organized
that will inject new life and interest
in the rural home and in up-to-date
"The chief objection to rural life—
its isolation, can thus be removed, and
Its many hitherto undeveloped advan
tages enjoyed. Moreover, plans for
c.o-operation in 'buying and selling as
well as in harvesting and threshing
can be worked out at these club meet

there Is decay.
'Then the young people yaarn for

it. If the farmers' club does not pro

where it is not so morally healthful.
"Farmers must get into the kabit of
co-operation. Large suma oi money
can be made as well as saved by co

women folks a chance to spend a
pleasant afternoon in summer time,
