Spring Humors
Come to most people and cause many
troubles,—pimples, boils and other
eruptions, besides loss of appetite,
that tired feeling, fits of biliousness,
indigestion and headache.
The sooner one gets rid of them the
better, and the way to get rid of them
and to build up the system that has
suffered from them is to take

The Bismarck Tribune is the oldest
newspaper in the state—established June
11, 1S73. It has a wide circulation and Is
a desirable advertising medium. Being
published at the capital of the state it
makes a feature of state news, of a semi­
official character, and is therefore particu­
lars interesting to all who desire to keep
the run of state affairs—political, social
and business.
In a talk with a stockman, who has
large interests in Montana, a short
distance from the line in this state,
and in Texas, at the N. P. depot, says
the Fargo Forum, a few interesting
facts were gleaned as to the increased
consumption of beef. The speaker
said that the big beef packers, alleged
to be in a trust combination, may have
had something to do with the moun­
tainous prices of meat, especially beef
in the east, but he contended that the
inevitable law of supply and demand
had something to do with the inflation
of prices. He said he thought the
new settlers coming to take advantage
of the fertile lands, farming and graz­
ing. in North Dakota, could learn a
lesson—go to raising beef. He said
that for the past six years there has
been not only a normal increase of
beef consumption, through the in­
crease of population, but also a very
large increase in the consumption of
beef per capita. Americans, beyond
all other people, are not only meat
eaters, but "beef eaters," and conspic­
uously so. Statistics show that the
consumption of meat per capita in the
United States is larger than in any
other country. A third larger than
in England, twice as large as France,
nearly three times larger than Ger­
many. Denmark. Belgium, Russia and
Ireland, and six times as large as Italy.
In England and Russia mutton is very
generally used and the supply for the
former comes from Australia. Rus­
sia does not need to import as she
raises pounds annually
for home supply. When beef is high
or scarce in Germany the masses take
to pork. France and Italy to fowls, but
in the United States, all over her vast
area the continuous demand is for
beef! beef! beef! and there is a vis­
ible increase when times are good and
work general. The speaker said,
"another thing. I don't like the beef
trust, but when conditions come that
make corn 00 cents a bushel in the
states where beef cattle are made fat,
meat will go up, trust or no trust."
Speaking of Senator McCumber's ef­
fort in behalf of pure food, the Alex­
andria, (Va.) Times says: "We
watched carefully the investigation as
•conducted b.v the senator in the food
adulteration investigation, and can
say that in all the years the matter
has been before congress no one of the
able and accomplished gentlemen who
have had this important matter in
fes' hand have handled the investigation
with more care or skill. While thor

he aays that the farmers of the 8ta*e

Grand Forks Herald: His Honor,
Judge Fisk. sitting in chambers yes­
terday, gave another and final hear­
ing to the Stith divorce case. The
plaintiff, Mrs. Stith, was represented
by Judge Barnett, of the firm of Bar
nett & Reese Fargo, and the defend­
ant by Hon. B. F. Spalding of the firm
of Newman, Spalding & Stambaugh.
This has been one of the most notable
divorce cases tried in the North Dakota
courts. Both of the parties were as
a matter of fact non-residents, but a
prominent Fargo banker was named
as co-respondent. The hearing yes­
terday was for the relaxation of costs
and closes the case so far as the courts
are concerned. It will be remembered
that Judge Fisk on the 23d inst.
granted a decree of divorce to the de­
fendant, Ool. Stith instead of the fair
plaintiff, 'but awarded the custody of
the cihild, a bright little girl of six
summers, to the mother.
An interesting sequel to this divorce
is the marriage of the plaintiff to J.
W. Von Neida, president of the Red
River Valley National bank, the co­
respondent in the case. Their mar­
riage occurred at West Superior, Wis.,
within 24 hours after the decree of
divorce was gramted.
Col. and Mrs. Stith were married in
1800, and before their separation had
been living in New York. Col. Stith
was several years the senior of his
wife. He was a southern gentleman
of considerable influence and ability.
Some two years ago the colonel re­
turning home one evening found that
both wife and child were gone. Mrs.
Stith left behind a letter announcing
that she had gone away to secure a
divorce and would not return. For
six months he waited and searched
but was unable to learn anything of
the whereabouts of of either wife or
child. Then he sought the aid of the
Masonic fraternity in hunting them
up. By description sent to grand
lodge officers, F. J. Thompson, secre­
tary of the grand lodge of North Da­
kota. located Mrs. Stith at Fargo, and
making some inquiries learned that
she had instituted proceedings in this
state, and notified Col. Stith. Learn­
ing that application had been made
for a divorce on the grounds of deser­
tion and cruelty, Col. Stith decided to
fight the case. Newman, Spalding &
Stambaugh were retained and a detec­
tive employed. It was ascertained
that Mrs. Stith, who ha« a large pri­
vate income, had become acquainted
with the Fargo banker, who was a
widower, in the course of business at
his bank, and he had evidently become
infatuated, and was soon escorting
the lady to the theatre and other
public places, driving, etc., until the
matter became town talk. The de­
tective was in Fargo for several weeks
and securing rooms at the same house
where Mrs. Stith was stopping, found
that the hankeT occupied rooms ad­
joining and connected with hers.
There was -plenty of evidence in sup­
port of the cross bill filed -by Ool.

County Superintendents Express Their
Sentiments in Some Adopted
The county superintendents of the
state returned to their homes today
after a very pleasant session in the
city. The principal regret with these
officials was that the trip to Wilton,
planned for this morning on the Wash­
burn road, had to be given up because
of the heavy rain which began last
night and still continued this morn­
ing. Last might the superintendents
were entertained at the executive
mansion by Governor and Mrs. White.
The mode of entertainment was novel,
the superintendents being subjected to
an examination lin geography. A
map of the United States was taken
and the several states cut out in out­
line. the outline alone being used to
designate the several states and the
guests were then required to name
correctly as many states as possible
from the outline. The exercise proved
entertaining, and upon its conclu­
sions those who had successfully
passed the examination were given a
printed certificate, bearing a picture
of the executive mansion, and stating
that the holder was qualified to travel
out ol the state, at least as far as St.
Paul. Daiinty, refreshments were
served and the evening very pleasantly
The officials feel that the time has
been well spent during .their stay in
the city. The discussions have been
profi cable, and all have gained a bet­
ter idea of their duties and their rela­
tions with the whole educational insti­
tution of the. state.
The report of the committee on res­
olutions. which was adopted by the
county superintendents, was as fol­
Resolved, That the county superin­
tendents commend the action of the
department of public instruction in
assembling the conference at the cap­
ital city where we have been better
enabled to study the excellent condi­
tions of the work of •the department
and the scope of duties that rest upon
the state superintendent. The effi­
ciency of Hon. J. M. Devine as viewed
from the office at Bismarck and from
his zealous field work at the meetings
of school officers, teachers' associa­
tions, and summer schools is entitled
to our hearty endorsement and the
promise of full co-operation in all that
he has undertaken for the good of the
children and the schools.
We extend our sincere thanks to
Governor White and other state offi­
cials for the courtesies shown us ait
the caplitol, and especially to Governor
and Mrs. White for the enjoyaible re­
ception given us at the executive man­
sion on Wednesday evening. We
have thoroughly enjoyed the hospital­
ity of the citizens of Bismarck and
particularly the vislit to the state pen­
itentiary and the twine plant War­
den Boucher is congratulated upon the
excellent administration of affairs and
the reformatory and business success
he has achieved for the state during
Ms term.
We express to Auditor Walker our
cordial appreciation of the invitation
fOT a trip over the Bismarck, Wash­
burn & Great Flails railroad to the
Wilton coal mines and congratulate
%e citizens of the state upon the won­
derful development of mining of lig­
nite in that region. With such effi­
cient and progressive management of
Mr. Walker it can be a question of a
very few years when lignite will be
the fuel, used not only throughout this
state, but in the states east and south
of North Dakota.
Recognizing the splendid cultural
influence exerted by the N. E. A., we
will spare no efforts to secure the at­
tendance of large and representative
body of educators at the next meeting
of the association to he held in Mdn
neppblis, July 7-11. FHiPthermore
that every county superintendent of
the state of North Dakota make indi
vidual and personal effort to secure
through such committees and other
agencies as are designated for that
purpose, a complete and creditable ed­
ucational exhibit calculated to reflect
adequately and honorably the educa­
tional status of North Dakota at the
present time.
The action of the county superin­
tendents in voting to refuse the cer­
tificates at the state high school board
the certificates'^ of oomifletion of the
Normal schools and university, and
the standings of the common school
diplomas, in lieu of the regular teach
era' examination is heartily endorsed
and we urge the state sueprintendent
and examining board to. hold closely
to the civil service system of the pres­
ent certification law, and maintain a
professional test in all examination
questions and markings.
