William Shuett, a farmer of Hanklnson, testified that he received $250 annually for acting as vice presi dent of the company.

Miller, Joseph Hare and Dr. W. A. Bentley will be the marshals in charge. The drive will be up Sixth street to the capitol, and down Fourth street on the return. This will cover the prin cipal residence streets of the city. There will be no formal reception, and no handshaking and every arrange ment will be made to insure the safety of the presidential party. A large number of visitors is expected to greet the president, including a number of Indian chieftains from Standing Rock and Elbowoods. There is a hitch in the arrange ments of speaking, and it is not known yet whether the president will speak at the capitol or at the court house. The Northern Pacific does not want the crowd upon its lawn in front of the depot, so some other place will be selected. There will be salutes from cannon, music, and a general jubila tion.

SEEDING WILL BE EARLY. Favorable Weather Will Enable Farm ers to Do Their Seeding Ear lier Than Usual. The chances are that unless there is unusually cold weather within the next lew days the farmers of *lu- Northwest will ie hard at work seeding duiing the first week in April, which will be considerable in advance of the aver age. Since farming became general in the Red River Valley the middle of April has been about the average time' for beginning seeding, and the time has been extended into May. This1 year light snow fall and warm winds during the past week or two have caused the land to get into condition a good deal earlier than usual. With average weather during the spring! there will be a larger acreage of grain sown in the valley this year than last, as the percentage of plowing done last. fall was larger than it has been for some years. For several years back, fall plowing has been interrupted by rain, and the winter has come with the ground so wet that some time has been required in the spring to put the ground in condition to plow. This year a large area of the arable land most is in condition to plow as soon as the frost is out far enough. It is expected that there will be a slight increase of wheat sown this spring in the talley, and probably in the western counties as well. The area of land sown to flax will be dimin ished, one of the elements tending in this direction being the reduced price, and another the fact that flax seldom does well when raised from year to year on the same soil. The falling of! from these causes will be partly made up by the flax sown on new breaking, which will be large, as there will be many thousands of acres of new land broken In the western countries this spring. Imitates Mrs. Astor. A certain comic opera soprano in New York Is causing much annoy ance to Mrs. John Jacob Astor by imitating that young fashion leader In every way possible. In dress, walk, equipage and manner does the stage celebrity show this "sincerest form of flattery." The climax came last week when the woman of fash ion added to her stable accouter Dents a horse cover of fine seal leather with the Astor crest wrought InconspicouBly in brass in one cor ner. Every one waited for the bur lesque queen to do likewise. The next time she appeared, her horse was covered by the leather trap pings. But the crest was as big as a saucer. Just Found It Out.
