SOUTHERN PACIFIC IS PUNNINGNEWTOWNS NEW LINES WILL OPEN VAST AMOUNT OF TERRITORY TO SETTLEMENT. "North Dakota andthe Northern Pa CHI©—Partners" Is Sentiment That Takes Well. In an advertisements of new towns on the Northern Pacific system in this state and Montana, it is seen that a map shows several new branches soon to be in operation. These branches extend from Edge ley, west to Linton, and across the Missouri river to connect with a line running south from Mandan along the west side of the Missouri river also "i branches west from Fort Yates and near the Cannonball river, and theto lines 'being built north of Mandan. The map has an excellent heading and conveys a sentiment that all rec ognize as a desirable condition for both the people and the road—• 'Worth Dakota and the Northern Pa cific, partners." The new towns referred to in the advertisement are on the line west of the Missouri river. The iNtorthern Pacific has begun the development of a large area of country tributary to its main line, equally as good for agri cultural .purposes as any through which the road now passes. In the near future much new business will come from these infant towns and new farming localities wrested from the wild prairie, brought under plow and occupied as homesteads by pros perous families.

Error Occurred In Original Contest 'Notice Application for Correction Will Be Made. Word was received from Minot on Tuesday evening to the effect that a search of the records in the court house had resulted in the discovery that the original ballot and the one voted at the last general election when the question of the division of Ward county was up, described the county lines so that Cowbells is in the new county of Burke. It appears that all that will be necessary now allow of completion of the organ ization of the county is for the su preme court to grant an appeal that will be made for a correction of error in the records of the court. It is likely that the governor will not make any appointments of coun ty commissioners for a few days yet. In the organization of new counties the governor appoints the new com missioners and they in turn appoint the ofllcers to serve until the next general election. Spring Capes just arrived, at Webb Brothers. WARD COUNTY PAPER SEES END OF STRIFE Ward County Independent: Burke county will be apart from Ward coun ty just as soon as the organization of that county can be perfected. Gov. Burke will have an opportunity to appoint some more officials, and will do it in the usual way. This leaves Ward county still a respectable size, with the chances of county division never both ering us any more. This leaves us Kenmare, the city of which we nave ever been proud, and which we would have lost so reluctantly. This leaves the county officials with less territory to cover, and wli^h the exception of the sheriff, possibly^ the same salary. This leaves Kenmare up in arms, for they do not likef the idea of be'fng situated in the "gooBe neck" orthe county, so to speak, and we do riot blame them a bit. ••'i? This leaves Ward,county at lafge with no apologies to make to Ken mare, for it was not bur fault.-i'0 Mere are the boutidarJClfllfeB of the new county of Burke: Starting' at the extreme northwestern part of Ward county, at township 163, range 94, travel east if ybu will, forty-two miles, or across seven townships to the boundary line between ranges 87 and 88, thence south on that line about six miles,'and west three miles again. Travel south twelve miles, un til you strike the northern boundary of Mountrail county and go west across the width of five townships, or thirty miles, and you will strike the western (boundary of Burke. This gives Burke "county thirty townships. The entire county consists of one of the best farming sections in the Unit ed States, the farms being especially well improved. This leaves Burke county with the following towns: Columbus, Larson, Stampede, Fern, Rival, Flaxton, Portal, Bowbells, Co teau, Woburn, Rennie, Lignite, Pow ers Lake, Vanville and possibly some others may have omitted. A lively scrap will now be in order to see which towns will land the coun ty seat. Ward county is still left a very re spectable size about half its original size, before Mountrail and 'Burke counties were cut off. This leaves Ward county still seventy-eight miles long from north to south, with an av erage width of about forty miles. The county division question would certainly have come up in the next election had Burke county not wonnight out. As it is, there is no danger of the voters, as a rule, desiring a change. W«ard county, still retains more than seventy-nine townships. HAIR VIM. A certain relief from dandruff, fall ing hair and scalp irritation.

BUSY AT LAND OFFICE IN SPjTCOF STORM OLD TIMERS IN ACTING AS WIT- NESSES FORTHEIR NEIGH- BORS. All Are Satisfied With Their Exper iences in North Dakota Ideas are Changing. Notwithstanding the severe storm of Monday and Tuesday, there were four proofs taken at the United States local land office. John Lean of Pelican township, proved up, with George Payseno and August J. Wiest, farmers of the same locality, as witnesses. Hans Molin of Baldwin, proved up on bis homestead near that place. His witnesses were Albin T. Spang berg and Alfred Raustrom. They are all old timers in Burleigh county. Molin and Spangberg were small boys when they came here and are nownois among the most progressive young farmers of the county. Alfred Raus trom has been in the icounty twenty six years and is satisfied with the re sult of his labors. He is well fixed, well preserved and is enjoying life. Mrs. Lena Thompson came up from Odense with two witnesses, to make proof on her homestead. It was a hard drive in such a storm, but theroads. drive did not compare with the lack of train service between Mandan and Bismarck. He witnesses were Wm. •N. Hanson and Albert Johnson, who already own good farms in Morton county. They both read the Bis marck Tribune and say they get their money's worth. They always enjoy a visit to Bismarck. Carl Spitzer proved up on a home stead in McLean county. He lived in Bismarck fourteen years before taking up a claim. He had the idea that the country was good for noth ing. His father and brother, Lewis, who came from Russia ten years ago, took up land shortly after arriving on which they have since proved up. Carl contested a filing in the same section with 'his brother Lewis, and won out, and has now proved up on it. Ten years ago these people 'had no property today they own nearly two sections of land. The United States is a good enough government for tbem. They also read the Tribune. They visited their uncle, Charles Spitzer, and family, of this city, -while in town.

MORE NEWS ANENTDRY FARMINGJONGRESS WELCH HAS BEEN IN TWIN CITIES MAKING ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE MEETING. Hill and Elliot May Become Inter ested in the Matter Commercial Club Making Arrangements. A few weeks ago the Tribune an nounced that the Commercial Club was trying to promote a dry farm congress at Bismarck in the month of March. George Welch has just returned from the Twin Cities and while there met H. W. Campbell of Lincoln, Neb., who they expected to secure as a speaker on the subject of dry farming soil culture, and other valuable subjects that the agricultur alists of North Dakota should know. Mr. Campbell is an editor of a farm paper at Lincoln, and has just finish ed a tour through Indiana and Illi speaking on the culture of the soil, and is considered a man of in telligence and experience in the mat ter of dry farming, he is now in Min neapolis conferring with President Elliot of the Northern Pacific and President Hill of the Great Northern Railroads, furthering a proposition with them to put dry farming into practical use along these two rail- It will be remembered by some, that twenty years ago the Northern Pacific introduced the first dry farm idea in this vicinity at Glen TJllin, it is said that they will in the near future have many farms along their lines using this method only. The Commercial Club has many de tails to ponder over to be able to se cure Mr. Campbell, but there is a great deal of enthusiasm among the men that know the benefit of this necessity and it looks like Bismarck will be awarded. THE COST OF LIVING CITY VS. COUNTRY (By Geo. Mobbard Maxwell.) Did you ever stake a calf out with a rope in a patch of nice succulent grass and watch him wind his rope around the stake until it gets, its nose up to within less than a foot from the stake, where he could not reach a blade of grass, and tben watch him pull and plunge to try and get loose so he could get something to eat? That calf illustrates about all there is to the great modern problem of the enormously increased cost of liv ing, which is today so seriously agi tating the minds of millions of people with long appetites and short purses. They have so wound themselves up in the artificial complications of con gested city life, that like the calf they can no longer reach the food that roust be got from the Mother Earth. iNo way has yet been discovered for producing beef except by feeding cattle something that grows out of the groutad. You could not very well raise cattle in Central Park in New York City. You have got to go to some place where the "keep off the grass"' signs are not necessary, either for cattle or children. So you muftt raise cattle in the country. But ap there are a great many mil lion of people who don't want to live in the country. They prefer to live where they can't get any beef except from the Beef Trust. They cannot be happy without the glare and confusion of the congested city. ®o they live in flats or tena ments for which they have to pay so much rent that they don't have enough left to buy food, and what they do buy is transported so far, and handled so many times by so many who must each make a profit out of it before It finally gets to the consumer, that the dwellers in cities have to pinch and squeeze their slim purses to get enough, to appease their hun ger. They are forced to get along without meat in order to save the money to pay tbe rent. As congestion increased in New York, first they had to have elevated railroads, .then subways, then bridges across the 'East river, and tunnels under the Hudson river, and a laby rinth of sewers and conduits and pipes under every street, and waterworks, and parks galore. Tammany had to be supported, and that cost many mil lions. (Now new sub-ways must be built .and the great Asokan Dam is just being finished. It was estimated last fall that in addition to all tbe billiom? already spent, New York would need 1322,000,000 for new pub lic improvements immediately. The people that llve in New York must pay for it all. And the fool that lives in the east side tenament or a west side flat, or a Morningside apartment and hangs onto a strap for an hour, back and forth every day to earn a few dollars to cover rent, food and clothing, im agines that all he pays for the priv ilege of being a strap hanger, is the five cents be pays for fare. He does not see that when the elevated road had to be built he was one of those who bad to pay for it. He couldn't pay for It in any other way so he paid a little more rent. That left a little less food. So be took a slice off his beefsteak and banded it back to the I Beef Trust because he couldn't afford to eat that much meat. He had to, have the money for Tent. When the. subways were built, the Beef Trust got back another slice of his beef steak. Every new great expenditure made necessary by the growth of the population makes rent higher and the beefsteak thinner. Soon the strap hangers will not be able to afford meat at all, and will turn for relief to the "canned life." That will last awhile, as the Irishman succeeded in teaching bis mule to live on saw dust. But the mule died* Jtlst as he was getting used to it. That is what will happen to the tenament dwellers. It is not to be expected that those who have become inoculated with the mi crobe of the tenement life will ever pull out of it in any large number. They are like dope fiends who cannot control their abnormal appetites. But people in the country towns can stay there, where they can have beef to eat and fresh air to breathe.

By the The storm of Monday had entirely subsided by Tuesday noon, and while it was colder, the general conditions were very satisfactory. There have been no reports of fatal ities or serious loss from the outside and the heaviest losers are the rail roads, as it will cost JX good many thousand dollars to get their lines in working order again. The Soo /will send out t.1e north train this morning behind a snow plow. A rotary will 'be started from Drake and it is expected that the lin§ will be opened before the day Is over. No attempt has been made as yet to open up the Linton branch of the N. P., but it is likely a plow will be sent out this morning. There were a couple of Russel plows sent east yesterday afternoon. No. 1 due here at 10:45 Monday night did not arrive until after 1 o'clock Tuesday afternoon. Nos. 3 and 7 from the east were delayed a number of hours and tihe trains from the west due here Monday afternoon and even ing went through last evening about twenty-four hours late. All trains on the main line of the Northern Pacific are now running about on time, and freights have started to move again. The Soo made no attempt to move freights even on their main line dur ing the storm, but it is expected they will get into action again this after noon. Taken all in all the conditions will be normal gain by this evening. The Capital street car line is block ed and it is doubtful if it will be possible to get it open today. In the mean time the hack lines are doing a thriving business. I Try Tribune Want Columns.
