FRIDAY, FEB. 19, 1915,
One of the commendable pieces of
legislation enacted at the present ses
Bton at Bismarck, is the measure which
1$ popularly known by the classical
sobriquet, "the bum check bill." This
measure is not aimed at forged checks,
or checks that have been tampered
V4th, as might be inferred from the
words "bum checks," but it prohibits
the use of checks when the owner has
tip funds in the bank.
-An amendment, which was added in
tile senate, provides that if the writer
of the check has made an arrangement
with his banker to take care of tho
over-draft, the check may be used.
Tjiis amendment, however, does not
Impair the principle of the bill which
was designed to protect the pub
As soon aft the bill becomes effective
It will be a felony to issue a check, on
a bank in which the writer has no
funds, or if the check is for a greater
amount than the writer's bank balance,
unless the person who issued the check
|has made arrangements with the bank
'$6 take care of the amount.
Over-drawing bank accounts has be
come a public nuisance in North Da
ffcota as any one who has done an ex
pensive business In the state will
testify. It Is a shiftless, unbusiness
like procedure, to say the least, and it
fig time the evil was corrccted.
The Forum is in receipt of the fol
lowing Interesting letter:
McLeod, N. D., Feb. 15.—I came
^to McLeod from Minnesota in the
spring of 1912 with tho intention
Of looking over land with the view
of purchasing some land and farm
ing it. I went r.Ver the MeLcod
•tato demonstration farm. I saw
the fine grove of trees starting, the
I flno garden and potato crop, saw
how well the corn and oats produc-
«d. the alfalfa was very fine and
this induced me to buy land and
Jpjild upon it near the demonstra
tion farm.
I have learned many valuable
ratlings from this farm and I know
good many mrre people who
ave had the same experience as
have had. I think it would be a
mistake to discontinue this
farm as your paper stated a few
^Jflays ago. It would be far better
*jto increase Hie scope of the dem
onstration form rather than discon
tinue them at a time when the
ktate is changtng from wheat rats
ig to diversified farming.
^The Forum reproduces this letter
ftijfas prominently because it expresses
concisely the views of many other
farmers, as given to The Forum either
visrbally or by letter. The farmers of
jINorth Dakota as a whole are very
^rtuch in favor of retaining the demon
stration farms.
The Forum commends this letter to
attention of the members of the

Austria or less. The loaves made with
more than 30 per cent potato-meal

heavier and less attractive in form.
The bread has a rather coarse texture

"The efficiency of any drug" says Dr. O. P.

obtain from its use. If we are able to con
trol pain and disease by means of any pre
paration, we certainly are warranted In its
use. One of the principal symptoms of all
dUeases is pain, and tliis Is what the patient
most often applies to us for, 1. e. something
to relieve his pain. If we can arrest this
promptly, the patient Is most liable to trust
la us for the other remedies which will effect
a permanent cure. One remedy which 1
have used largely in my practice is Antl

Business men can measure exactly

that the wages paid to a man for six

for efficient lighting for him to work

formation comes from one of their own
engineers—under the old system of
poor lights men would waste the equiv
alent of an hour's labor every day.
H»ncc the result: Bad lights cost the
employer one hour's wages, while good
lights cost the employer only six min
utes in wages. In one big plant poor
lighting cost $10,000 a month, until a
young engineer showed how good
lights would stop that leak.

"Why," replied daddy, "I suppose It is because he Is such a wild, free, won

rival to the eagle as the 'bird of freedom.'"
"What's that, daddy?" asked Jack eagerly. "A condor7*
"You silly!" cried Evelyn in disgnst. "Why, a condor is an awful Mfd!"
"The vulture is not exactly a lordly bird," commented daddy, "though he's

South America. But I have in mind the seagull.
"Somehow I don't know of a freer, more splendid bird in some respects
than the seagull. He Is very small beside tbe eagle, yet the little fellow files
splendidly. Tbe eagle is very popular from a romantic standpoint. He builds
his eyrie upon some Jutting crag high above the clouds and thinks nothing of

"The eagle is a fierce bird, but there is nothing fierce aboat tbe little gray
seagull, though he can fly so fast. Passengers on the fast liners walk the
decks and watch clouds of these gulls following tbe ship, fast as it is, with
as much ease as if it were a little sailboat. They feed upon the scraps of
food which are thre*vn from the ships, and when they are satisfied they utter
strange, harsh cries and dart ahead like the wind and soon leave the big, fast
liner away behind as they wing for the shore so far away.
"Occasionally one will see them diving for fish. It is great sport They

"Don't they ever rest, daddy?" asked Evelyn.

"If a light is so bright," one of these
experts explained, "that after looking
at it and when you close your eyes the
impression remains there, your eye has
been injured to some extent. Tt has
been proved that such an imprint of
the sun may continue half a day, prov
ing the terrible peril in exposing chil
dren's eyes to that direct glare."
Count the men and women wearing
glasses and the number appalls you.
Too highly glazed pages of books, un
shaded lamps and unprotected electric
lights in cars, homes and schools have
aided enormously the business of the
optician. But among the illuminating
engineers who are flghting the glare
foe I find some distinguished oculists
and eye specialists.
If these men thought only of their
own purse they would advise all of us
to go ahead In the old and badly-light
ed fashion.
It requires exactly 100 typewritten
pages to transcribe the Pennsylvania
laws dealing with the question of light.
Not one word in those 100 pages about
a standard of light.
We are told to have this and that
and the other "properly" illuminated,
but we are not told how good or bad
"properly" may be. If an ignoramus

forty pupils with misplaced windows

It is easy to get too much light. Mr.
Markle, the Willow Grove electrician,
says that 8-candle power were substi
tuted for 16-candle power lamps for
decorative purposes at that park. The
bigger lamps made too much light.
Better to have double the number of
smaller ones.
And Mr. Markle must know, for he
