It seems that Bergolitz had enough money to get back to Grand Forks from Michigan, but he unable to go any further east owing to the lack of funds. He sent a telegram to his brother in-law, but the latter sent .back word that he was financially embarrassed himself and could send no aid. The answer seems to infer that the broth er-in-law is not any too anxious to have his relatives go to him. The foreigners are now stopping with Nablin Bros.,, 614 DeMers avenue. In the old country Bergolitz and his sons were farmers, and they are now looking for jobs on farms hero, WOMAN KILLED BY LIGHTNING Lankin, N.

D., July 27.—W. E. Ervin, proprietor of the cleaning and pressing establishment in the Gale house building, was badly burned in a gas explosion in his place of business. Jas. Williams, colored, who was ag isting Mr. Ervin, received a worse burn than did Mr. Ervin, the boy hav ing a very deep burn on his left arm. Mr. Ervins burns, while not deep, are exceptionally painful,, and he is burn ed on both arms, the left arm receiv ing the brunt of the flames, and his face is also quite severely burned. Mr. Williams' burns do not cover so much of his body, but his one burn is deeper and will take longer to heal. The men were at work cleaning with gasoline and as the room is not very well ventilated, the combustible gas gathered and ignited from the flame on the gas flat iron. In an instant the small room was a mass of flames and before the men could escape both were quite badly burned. The builc*^ is a brick structure, and the flames did~Fut little damage to the building, although there is a loss of about $100 on cloth ing that was in the place being clean ed.

D.. ,July 27, Willie McKeen, aged 19, son of Charles Mc Keen, was found lying in a side street with his skull broken and his chest crushed in. There is considerable mystery connected with his death, but it is believed he was the victim of a vicious horse. McKeen and a young lady drove to Bottineau from their farm home to take in a show. After the show a storm cama up and while it was storming, McKeen started out to get his rig which was tied in front of the Patrons' exchange. That was the last seen of him alive. No alarm was felt when he did not return as the storm proved to be heavy and it was believed that he had put up his horse and gone to a hotel for shelter for the night. The girl stayed with friends thinking that Mc Keen had decided it was too stormy to venture out. The next morning Mc Keen's body was found and it was then learned that the horse was vici ous and when it was found it was dragging Its tie rope, indicating that the animal had made a break for liberty, had knocked the young man down and probably crushed his life out by trampling on his chest. HEAT BEGINNING TO BE FEARED ON THE SLOPE Medora, N. t., July 27.—Today was the warmest of many hot days this month, 105 in the shade. Very hot wind, but slight showers in middle of afternoon. Late sown grain and much early sown cannot stand such con tinued hot weather. No rain for three weeks. TEAM OF HORSES WERE STOLEN NEAR KENMARE Kenmare, N. D., July 27.—A black team, gelding and mare, weighing 1300 pounds apiece, were stolen from Tom Olson, who occupies the Bowman farm, just across the lake from Ken mare. The thieves took the team some time during the night, leading them from the stable, off toward the ceetery, where the tracks were lost. No trace of the animals has been found up until The Journal Is being printed Thursday afternoon, although the authorities are making every ef fort to apprehend them. SARLES DISTRICT HAS HAIL STORM Sarles. N. D., July 27.—The Sarles, Calvin and Clyde farming districts were visited hy a lucky hail storm, which did no damage. Shortly after noon, a hail storm broke over this dis trict, and traveled to Calvin and Sarles. The hail stones were about the size of peas, and fell straight down. The storm was unaccompan ied by wind. As far as can "be learned no damage was done. YOUNG MAN WAS DROWNED WHILE TAKING A SWIM Mark Lovett of LaMoure was drowned in the James river while tak ing a swim. It seems that his father and mother had Just arrived from Iowa and were visiting their sons, who are in business in LaMoure and Berlin. This young man desired to take a dip, being a good swimmer. He swam across the river once and start ed to cross the second time. But it seems as if he got some water in his lungs and he began to struggle for life. R. G. Drlpps, the hardware man from Berlin, went to assist him and brought him back nearly to the shore when Lovett slipped from his grasp and sank to rise no more until his body was recovered. It was thought he died suddenly before sinking ow ing to breast action. NO CHANGE IN TAX SCHEDULES Bismarck, N, D., July 27.—The state board of equalization meets in this city on Tuesday, Aug. 4. It is much changing of schedules, as this matter has been pretty well sifted out. The railroads and other large corporations have been pretty well satisfied with their treatment, and seem to be will ing to let well enough alone. The av erage land valution of the state was placed around 18 per cent last year, and it is believed that this will be somewhere near the figure necessary this year. IS ACQUITTED OF GRAIN THEFT Minot, N. D„ July 27.—The jury in sss I the case of Ernest Ferris, charged SSS with stealing wheat in the vicinity of Des Lacs last winter, brought in a SSS verdict of not guilty, having been out exactly twenty-four hours.

D., July 27.—Carl and Tom Amoth have returned from a very pleasant three months' stay in Nor way. They found the whole land do ing their utmost to heartily welcome home their sons and daughters from America. Not only the big cities but the entire country held a feast in hon or of the moved-out Norway, who re turned this year for the big celebra tion. After an absence of twenty-six years they found the welfare of the country to have taken great strides forward. The "big waterfalls have been harnessed, furnishing electric lights and power throughout the land to farm population as well as towns. The utilizing of the water power has caused large industries to spring up which furnish work for thousands of people, and this in turn has raised the «l' I't *HE FARGO FORUM AND DAILY KEPTTRLKTATT, MONDAY EVENING, JULY 27, 1914. farms, although small, compared to what we are accustomed to, are very carefully farmed, bringing the largest yields possible. The country presents a very thrifty appearance throughout, all buildings, orchards, etc., being kept exceedingly neat. The populace are clad in modern clothes, have plenty to eat and money to spend. A high wage is paid the laboring men for their work compared to twenty-six years baok. The country is covered with a network of railroads, which bring country and cities nearer together, aiding travel and transportation of products. CHECK PROTECTOR SELLER CHECK MANIPULATOR Mandan, N. D., July 37.—J. W. Mpr rison of New York city, sojourned here a little while and now his place is vacant. So are a few pocketbooks. Morrison was agent for the New Era check protector and pencil sharp ener, simple little devices for which he claimed to have the sole agency in this section and a few of which he sold in Mandan during his several days' stay here two weeks ago. He stopped at the Inter-Ocean and just before he left had Manager Mc Quillan cash a check for $17. He was not seen afterward and both the mon ey for the check and the week's board bill are what the pleasure of Mr. Mor rison's company cost Mr. McQuillan. A warrant has been sworn out but the authorities entertain little hope of locating the! man, as there is every reason to suspect that he made his living more oft of the checks he could cash than off of the check protectors he could sell. Consequently he very likely took particular pains to cover up his tracks out of this city. Morrison is a medium sized fellow with gray clothes and light soft hat, neat in appearance, smooth faced and smooth tongued, although very plaus ible and congenial appearing. It is be lieved he went west from here. BOTTLE OF ALCOHOL EXPLODED-MAN INJURED New Rockford, N. D., July 27.— While in the act of generating the gasoline lights in the Stitzel pool hall Harley Hartson received burns that very nearly cost him his life. As he was pouring wood alcohol onto the generator which was not suf ficiently warm, the alcohol caught fire and went into the bottle he was hold ing in his hand, which was about half full. It immediately exploded and shot alcohol over his clothes and head. He was immediately a mass of flames but, owing to the presence of mind of some of the witnesses, he was covered with coats and towels and the fire extin guished. Dr. MacKenzie was sum moned as quickly as possible and dressed the burns. It Is not possible at fhis time to as certain just how badly he is burned. His eyesight is no doubt not affected, as a short time after the acicdent he was handed a mirror and said he could see himself, but not very clearly. Crystal Notes. crystal, N. D., July 24.—To The Forum: Mr. and Mrs. Grant Fuller arrived from Manitoba last week on their way to their home at Orange, Cal.

This noble effort to turn at tention back to the Word of God to having the desired e£ect wherever It is exhibited. No one can see it without having his heart irresistibly drawn toward the Giver of every good and perfect gift, who so loved the world as to give "His Only Begotten Son. that whosoever believeth in Him might not-perish, but- have everlasting life." Today Pastor Russell preached from the text, "So is be that layeth np treas ure for himself, and is not rich toward God. "-Luke 12:21. The Pastor began his discourse with the declaration that ours is the day of Wealth. Nothing to compare with it has ever been known in the world's history. Not merely have we discover ed rich deposits of gold, silver and precious stones not merely are these being mined in a provident and suc cessful manner, with which nothing in the past could compare but additional ly the world is growing richer in every conceivable way. This statement was illustrated by reference to the growth of our cities in size and beauty, in sanitary conve niences, In spacious parks, in good, paved streets and boulevards and to our industries, which are multiplying machinery perfected within the last fifty years and turning out products of convenience and value. These add greatly to the world's comfort and ma terial wealth, and are not merely per ishable articles such as clothing and bcica-brac, but substantial edifices, etc. Vast libraries, both public and private, are being acquired. Many for mer luxuries are becoming almost ne cessities, because of the facility with which they are produced. All these things, and many others, constitute riches, one glance at which would amuse our ancestors. root of all evil," has intensified? Is it not trve that financial greed has become so strong as to make necessary Pure-food Laws for the protection of the lives of the people—because life and health .were In jeopardy? Attention was then called to the fact thut, although we are better housed, better fed and better clothed than were our forefathers, yet there is a general condition of unrest, due to trust in riches. Deepite all our mod ern safeguards of police and detective systems, despite our telegraph, tele phone, etc., hnman lives and prop erty are still in peril because of the hanger for wealth everywhere prev alent. "Whose 8haH These Things Bet" The Pastor next discussed the para ble from which his text is taken. In It our Lord pictures a man whose lines were fallen in pleasant places. The smiling swn and the genial show ers prospered his undertakings, and his wealth grew apace. To him came op portunities for helping friends, neigh bors and relatives less favored—oppor tunities for turning his material wealth to good account in the cultivation of the generous traits of his nature and thus for developing more and more the Divine character for God scatters His blessings of sunshine and shower upon both the evil and the good. But instead of growing richer In character through the cultivation of noble qualities, this rich man permit ted selfishness to dominate him. He pulled down his barns in order to build greater ones. Instead of dispensing the wealth which Divine providence permitted to flow into his lap, be ac cumulated more. Many, alas! today are following bis example. Tbese say to themselves, "I will accumulate wealth, end then will say to my soul, You have plenty 'eat, drink and be merry.' Think not particularly of your less favored brethren and neighbors, nor of the hopelessly poor live for your self." Thus in the parable the faster has drawn a picture of practically ev ery man in the world, some of whom ars veaily doing these things, and oth- Contlnued On Page Nine.

Skilful political use of the af fair has been made by Mr. Wilson in minimizing the impression that he is not a friend of legitimate business in terests. To this extent, at least, the senate opponents of the nominations of Messrs. Warburg and Jones as members of the federal reserve board have played into the president's hands by creating an opportunity for him to seize. He promptly rushes to the de fense of the senate—an amusing stroke in its ironical embellishment—against the charge that it is "an enemy of business, big or little," "It (the sen ate) knows that the business of the country has been chiefly promoted in recent years by enterprises organized on a great scale and that the vast ma jority of the men connected with what we have come to call big business are honest, incorruptible and patriotic." And more of that sort pegged on the estimate, the capable, the patriotic Messrs. Warburg and Jones. vdi '"r it were difficult to find a safe and reliable remedy for the ailments due to irregular or defective action of the stomach, liver or bowels.

It was well said. At the same time, the high crime of inconsistency can not be made to point a fresh accusa tion. Mr. Wilson has never attacked big business because it wa8 big. Big to the conception of all the great po buslnesa becomes a menace, according Utical parties and their leaders, only when it breeds private monopoly. Who cares how big an industrial corpora tion is If it does not control an in dustry with monopolistic purpose, or have the pwer to control an industry with such a purpose? This is the crux of the situation, although those who so bitterly complain against the "war" on business conveniently ignore the real Issue. The mere fact that the presi dent can make such a statement as yesterdaj''s without a particle of in consistency reminds one of what is su perficial and what is fundamental in the controversies over law enforce ment and new legislation In matters of the business world.
