'^:'t'f RAY SCOTT PAYS BIG PRICEJOR CHICKEN TEMPTATION PUT IN HIS WAYSAW AND THRESHING CREW PEACHES ON HIM. Judge Pierce Collected $18.75 From Wogansport Farmer For One Little Prairie Chicken. The first arrest in the county un der the new game law was made Mon day afternoon, and Ray Scott, a young farmer living near Wogansport, was taken before Judge Pierce Tuesday, and after pleading guilty was fined $10 and costs, making a total of $18.75. Scott was on his way to town after some help to harvest his crop and carried a 22-calibre rifle with him and when he saw a covey of chickens the temptation was more than he could resist and he fired and brought one of the birds down. He attempted to conceal it under the seat of his bug gy but the head fell down below the slats in the bottom of the seat box, and was seen by some members of a threshing crew where he stopped for a few minutes to talk with a neigh bor. The man who had seen the chicken immediately sent word to Fred Carstens, the newly appointed deputy game warden for the county, and he went and made the arrest with the above results. It seems that Scott was also a dep uty game warden. 8TREET CARS RAISED $500. Only Three Towns in the State Are Affected.

We are pleased to note in the Trib une that war has been declared on blind pigs. Some seem to think the law is not the right thing, but this does not seem to be the case among the good American element. If those who complain could visit Kansas for awhile and imbibe some of her pure moral atmsphere they would see the difference. By all means enforce the law, one of the very best for North Dakota or any other state. We are pleased to see that a strong prohibi tion movement is everywhere, which goes to show that people are realiz ing the great need of stricter morals in all walks of life. Jacob Hauck lost a horse recently as did, also, Wm. Middlestetter. Both died of old age. An agent for the Watkins Medical Co. passed through here recently. Mrs. Hauck visited Mrs. Leach re cently. The farmers are busy cutting hay and grain and the farmers* wives are assisting in every way possible. Mr. Benjamin Stotling is about to resign is position as superintendent of schools so he can better look after his lumber Interests. This is' right and we Ihope his successor will hare no interests beyond his office. That he will visit the schools and assist the teachers as he should, for if any one needs help and encouragement it is our North Dakota teachers, who in many catfes suffer all kinds of abuse We would like to see the compulsory education law rigidly enforced for if we are going to make Americans of our foreign children, this is one of the greatest steps. Many of our teachers have already found employment. An auto just went past. These are ideal roads for auto-driving. Many land-seekers are abroad in the land The Ronda correspondent planted, an ounce of pie-plant seed, costing eight cents, last spring, and now hasgo 314 thrifty plants.

In the fall of 1883 Mr. Our remov ed with his family to Cass county, la., where he remained until the fall of 1903, when he changed his resi dence to Mt. Vernon, 111. The stay at Mt. Vernon proved to be t#ly a short one and in the spring of 1906 he started a new home in North Dakota on the prairie. Mr. Our became brok en in health, and the winter of 1908 and 1909 was one of great suffering. When the weather became warm he went to Ardale, la., for medical treat ment. An operation seemed neces sary and was successfully performed, but the disease, diabetis insipidus, had made such inroads upon his strength that he was not able to be out of bed again. He was connected with the Congregational church for a •number of years, where he served as a deacon, and in later years with the Presbyterian church, in which he was an ordained elder. He was a devoted husband and father and those who knew him best loved him for his beautiful Christian life.
