Always moderate in their prices, yet Wooltex garments are produced with a care and skill and thoroughness of manufacture, that is unequalled in other ready-to-wear garments. Wooltex garments are always correct in style, conforming in the fullest degree to the style tendency, yet never extreme always in modes that do not go quickly out of fashion thus making them most economical to buy. Considered for good style and elegance alone, the values of Wooltex garments are remarkable when to this you add an exceptionally extended service, the unusual economy ©f buying Wooltex garments C«pyri(tit, l«l«. hy The H.

PLUM LEV ARRIVED l#r PAR GO 34 YEARS AGO TODAY AND COMPARES THE WEATHER OF THAT DATE AND THAT OF TO DAY.—TRAINS DELAYED. T&irty-four years ago today ar rived In Fargo. It took me three days to come from St. Paul and when I arrived here there was three feet of snow on the ground," said H. C. Plum ley this morning in commenting on the beauty of the day. Mr. Plumley said that all trains were delayed and that in many places they were blockaded, a fact made evident by his statement that it took three days to get from the twin cities to Fargo. Today the weather is of the most Ideal spring variety. Robins are hopping about the lawns of the city and farmers throughout the valley are busy in their fields. It was on April 12, 1881 that Mr. Plumley stepped oft of the train at the Northern Pacific depot and since that time he has made Fargo his home. He has seen Fargo make pra ctically all of its development and he has many interesting comparisons to make between the Fargo of 1881 and the Fargo of today. "I well remember that the worst place for teams to stick in the snow was Just north of where the Waldort hotel now stands. There used to be a big slough there that was fully 12 feet deep and teams would get stuck and there was great difficulty experi enced in getting them out. This slough used to run north from the river bottom up past where the Wal dorf now is and continued on through the blocks between Broadway and Roberts street. There was a sidewalk on stilts that spanned this slough on Front street and this hole was filled with snow. "The high water in the river came in May of that year and the stream was very high although the water did not reach the stage it did in 1882." There is certainly quite a difference now. This old slough Mr. Plumley refers to has about disappeared ev erywhere in the city, there beine only a 7 v HEAR DAVIS DR. O. 3. DAVIS SP0K6 TO* FARGO COLLEGE STUDENTS AT Y. M. C. A. ON SATURDAY—GREATLY Dr. Ozora S. Davis spoke to the men of Ffcrgo college in the gymnasium Saturday noon. The Y. M. C. A. serv ed coffffec, eggs and ham sandwiches, along with pickles and doughnuts and other minor details and the men were there practically unanimously. Mr. Davis remarked before he began his talk that he liked the cap and gown formality of the affair. In a charming prelude to his talk he kept the audi ence in a roar of laughter with his stories and then plunged earnestly in to his subject. "If you're going to live a Christian life, you must be human,'' said Dr. Davis. "Your religion must be a na tural part of you. Anything we do wholeheartedly is Christian work. "Klppling tells in his poem of Mul hollands Contract how a rough cattle tender on a cattleboat was hurt and bargained with God in the hospital that if he recovered he would preach of Him. He went back to the cattle boats but he kept his contract, al though he had wanted to stay on shore in a warm dry house and be a preach er. He desired to belong to the class of preachers that want to be called father and dress like mother, but his contract with God took him back to his work. "A man should not only be good but he should be good for something. Dead perfection is not enough. Some men in college are in Christian work and are not real Christians while some are Christians and are not in the work. Both need waking up. "There are a few bits of advice I would like to give you In choosing your life work. It is well to do the thing you like. Many men don't want to be preachers because they judge the profession by its failures. "Don't get too much advice. Talk your case over with a few of your best friends. Your life will not work out according to plan. Something is guiding you continually. You have been guided to college in order that you may become leaders. "Listen to the deepest voices of the soul. Those voices come from God and are the sure guide. "There are great calls for men in the social and philanthropic leader ship of our land. Opportunities abroad in the foreign mission field and in Y. M. C. A. secretaryship are unlimit ed. "There is a great opportunity for strong men in the ministry. But don't go in unless you have sense of humor. The work will kill you otherwise. You must be able to stand by a man in sorrow and go Ashing with him. The church must lead in all movements. But as you face your lifework, re member all work done right tian." is Chris WHOLE FAMILY TORTURED BY ITCHING RASH Kansas City, Mo.—"My husband had a rasrti all over his body, and soon the WHOLE FAMILY was in the same condition. It looked "scaly and raised up on the arms and body in big bumps. This trouble burned and itch ed so that ^it would nearly drive one crazy. It was always worse at night, so we could not sleep. "We all had this trouble for about two or three' years, and during that time tried many remedies and pre scriptions with no results. We tried Resinol Ointment and Resinol Soap and it RELIEVED AT OXCE, and be for the third Jar of ointment had been used, we were all completely cured. It has been four months since we were cured, and there are no traces of the trouble."—(Signed) Mrs. S. A. Clark-i son, 1520 Lawn Ave., Oct. 24, 1914.

Xoble was quite badly hurt in an automobile ac cident that occurred three miles east of Jud, this morning at 3:30 o'clock. Noble and another man were going along the road east of town and in making a turn, cut the corner too short and the car tipped over throwing both men out of the machine. Mr. Noble was badly bruised and skinned by the accident but Is not in a serious condition. THompson-Seton Back. New York, April 12.—Ernest Thomp son-Seton, formerly head of the boy scout movement in America, arrived here from Liverpool on the steamship St/l^ouis after two months abroad. Mr. Seton said that the, boy scout move ment in England has suffered since the war began by reason of the major ity of the scout masters having been called to service. The boy scouts of America, he declared, are being developed toward a higher class of citizenship than the boy scouts are abroad, where more attention is being paid to effectiveness in drill and mili tary tactics.

Tkrilllng Race Mail Boat With (Correspondence of Rotterdam, March 24.—The German submarine U—28, according to seamen who travel between this port and Eng land, has a regular beat which she pa trols, between the Maas Lightship and the North Hinder. Practically every day she is on duty along that route watching for the railway and cargo steamers on their way to Hull or Har wich or Rotterdam. She has a number of captures to her credit at this point, although she has not yet succeeded in getting any of the fast mail or railway packet boats. Their speed is superior and they vary their course on each trip so as to make it impossible for the sub marine to lie in wait along the way. The following description of the pur suit of one of the railway Bteamers is published here: "The ship was pounding along at twelve knots, when suddenly there was a flash of sunlight on the surface of the sea, maybe two miles away, and the lookout called sharply, 'Submarine on the port bow'. "There was a sharp command to the man at the wheel and the ship changed her course. Then a quick call down the tube and the engineer sang out to his stokers, 'Beat her up, boys, U-28 is having another go'. "Down the stokehold tumbled the deckhands, eager to help with shovel and oilcan. The water jumped in the gauge, the safety valves showed signs of torment, there was a smell of heated e a i n s e s i e a n o u i v e Fargo, N. D. Many women prefer a laced front corset for its convenience in adjusting, but the mass of lacings, clasps, extra boning, etc., at the front makes many laced-front models cumbersome and uncomfortable. If this has been your exper ience let us fit you to a RED FERN. All possible discomfort from the lacings is done away with by the patented protecting tongue attached to the corset be* neaththem. Then the front boniiir and cksps are ground thin at the top. This feature affords the neces sary support over the abdomen but at the diaphragm your Red fern lace-front is as light and flexible as any lace-back style you have ever worn. Of course it is needless to say that Redfern laeed-front models are designed to produce the same fashionable lines for which the Redfern designers l^ave long been famous. rARGO'S UKlSATEaT 8TORJD THE ISIS TODAY ONLY J9th Episode of The $20,000,000.

Beside him stood the ship's boy, watch ing with fascinated eyes the white wake which marked the course of the submarine sailing at fourteen knots to cut them off. Smoke and fire streamed from the funnels and there was an odor of burning paint. The iron deck chat tered and groaned under the demands of the engines and the ship gained headway. "Suddenly the captain's shoulder gave a lurch, his arms shot down, tho boy thrown off his balance fell against the bulwarks, and the ship swerved In a half circle on a new course. Gradu aly the speed rose to thirteen, fourteen, fourteen and a half knots. The cap tain's face relaxed Into a smile. "What if the engine should break down? thought the boy, as his eyes again sought that distant white wake. In the long stern chase the same thought often came to the captain, but his face showed nothing but a quiet interest and his hands held strong on the whefl. Smaller and smaller grew the pursuer, until finally- It sullenly gave up the chase. Then came a call down the tube, a heavy sigh of relief from the engineer, and the men came tumbling back to deck.
