FILINGS HERETOFORE MADE IN "COAL" DISTRICT SOON TO BE CLEARED UP. THANKS TO OUR WASHINGTON DELEGATION AND LAND COM MISSIONER DENNETT Prompt action has been taken by the general land department to clear up the titles of lands already enter ed under the homestead law, proofs and patents on which have been held up awaiting determination as to whether or not the land contains val uable coal deposits. These lands are withdrawn by ex ecutive order in 1900, since which date no further entries have been re ceived in the district covered and no patents or proofs pending have been issued except where the tracts have been examined by official agents, con gress not having made sufficient ap propriation to employ enough official agents to examine the lands with drawn, hundreds of settlers have been unable to obtain title to their lands. The last congress was more liberal in its appropriations for this work, and thanks to the indefatagble work of our delegation at Washington, a large corps of special agents have "been detailed to this section to begin work soon, and a speedy cleaning up of delayed cases may be expected. By order of the commissioner, dated March 23, 1909, the unappropriated lands in the following townships in ,the Bismarck land district, hereto fore withdrawn as coal lands, are re stored to entry under the appropriate general public land laws: Township 137, range 89, Morton jcounty. I Township 138, ranges 85, 86, 88, Morton county. oTwnship 141, range 80, Burleigh county. Township 142, ranges 79, 80, 84 and :85, Burleigh and Oliver counties. Township 143, ranges 80, 81 and 83, McLean and Mercer counties. Township 144, ranges 81, 84, 87,secured and 89, McLean and Mercer coun ties. Township 145, ranges 84 and 86, McLean and Mercer counties. Township 146, ranges 82, 83, 84 and 85, McLean and Mercer counties. Township 147, ranges 83, 84, 85, 86, and 89, McLean and Mercer counties. Other lands withdrawn in other land districts have also been restored for entry. While there is not much vacant land open for entry in theland Bismarck district covered by this or der, there are many suspended proofs and doubtless many entries subject to contest. During the season it is likely that all proofs now hung up will be decid ed and patents issued. Milk! Milk/ For good, fresh milk or cream, phone Jennings' Hillside Dairy.

Gives Advice to Women Lacking In Energy and Vitality. Thousands of women are using toi let preparations unsuccessfully. Cosmetics fail to improve their thick, muddy complexions or to ban ish the pimples, blackheads and crow's feet. No wonder. Their trouble lies far deeper than the skin. They have bad blood, and bad blood in 90 percent of •the cases arises from inflammation of the mucous membrane. Their blood is filled with poison which is certain to break out in unsightly humor and blotches—while pale, drawn faces, deep circled eyes, stoop ing shoulders and weak backs com plete the story of suffering and de spair. Inflammation of the mucous mem brane is catarrh. Banish catarrh and complexions will clear as if by mag ic, pain vanish, e^es will brighten faces become .plump and shoulders erect. Perfect beauty goes only with perfect health and perfect health for women can only be obtained through Rexall Mucu-Tone, the one possible and permanent cure for catarrh. Mme. Swift, 44 W. 26th St, New York City, the most famous beauty specialist in the world, and an ac cepted authority on all relating there to, has this to say of Mucu-Tone: "I can strongly endorse the claims made for the Rexall Mucu-Tone as a cure for systemic catarrh. Its tonic effects are remarkable. It builds up the strength and restores vitality. If women are tired and run down, lack ing in energy and vitality, will use Mucu-Tone, they will praise it as I do, for its strengthening and healing qualities." Rexall Mucu-Tone works through the blood, and acting directly upon the muco-cells—the congestion and in flammation of which are the sole cause of catarrh—causes them to ex pel the poison and to resume their natural functions. Thus the mem branes are cleansed—the blood puri fied and revitalized. We know that Rexall Mucu-Tone will cure every form of catarrh, no matter where located, of how long standing, or by what other name it is known.

MELTON CHURCH DEDICATED SUNDAY PRESBYTERIAN8 NOW IN NEW HOME—DEDICATION SERVI CES IMPRESSIVE. Transfer of Church Funds Was Pe culiar Feature of the Ceremonies Five1 Trustees Are Elected—L. F. Spangenberg Has Been Called to Pastorate. On Sunday the new Presbyterian church at Hazelton was dedicated. Three impressive services were held during the day. The sermon of ded ication was preached by the Rev. A. W. Wright, moderator of the synod of North Dakota. In the evening a masterly sermon was preached by Thomas C. McCurdy, D. D., recently from Wilmington, Del. The Sunday school rally in the afternoon was well attended. The chief address was by Sunday School Missionary R. Hughes. This was an unusual dedicatory service, inasmuch as it was not nec essary to solicit a single dollar in or der to meet indebtedness. The re port of the chairman of the board of trustees showed that all bills had been paid and that the building was free of debt. This is certainly great ly to the credit of the people of Ha zelton and those in charge. The church cost approximately $3, It has two rooms with a seat ing capacity of 225. It has a heating plant and is completely furnished. During the dedicatory service a sil ver communion service was present ed to the church, the gift of Rev. and Mrs. John Wray of Hazelton. Another pleasant feature of the day was the transfer of some fundB which belonged to a union church which some years before had existed at Williamsport. A statement was made by Mr. Kurtz, a trustee of the aforesaid church, and at his sugges tion and with the concurrence of all those who had formerly been mem bers or supporters of the union church, the money was turned over to the Presbyterian church of Hazel ton. Durins the past year this church has been under the charge of Rev. fe. S. Brearley, pastor-at-large of Bis marck presbytery. Recently the peo ple have called as their pastor the Rev. L. F. Spangberg. 3 S S I f^-lf: .! *'. NEW COMMISSIONS ARE ISSUED COMMISSIONS ARE ISSUED BY THE GOVERNOR TO NEW OF FICERS OF GUARD.
