There was a get together meeting at Williston a few days ago, for the discussion by farmers of Williams and McKenzie counties of matters of common interest. An invitation had been extended to James J. Hill of the Great Northern road to be pres ent, and while Mr. Hill's engage ments made it impossible for him to come he found time to write a sensi ble letter to the committee In charge of the meeting, pointing out the vast possibilities for development in North Dakota. Among other things Mr. Hill said: "I regret that business engage ments prevent me from being with you at this meeting of farmers and business men of North Dakota, and I wish to send them a word of en couragement and congratulation. You, are right in getting together for counsel and to plan for your common future. It is the method of all suc cessful business today. There never was a time when a man was less able to live to himself than flow, and there is no man to whom the neces sity and value of co-operative effort should be more apparent than to the farmer. "You have a state of great possi bilities. Last year you were second only to Minnesota in the production of wheat, and came within a little over three million bushels of over taking her. Your soil and climate are suited to every kind of agricul tural product grown in the temper ate zne. You have taken front rank among the states of the union after but a few years of existence as a state. Less than a generation cov ers the growth of this great common wealth whose possibilities are even yet but half understood. "For what you have done is only a beginning. You are now entering up on the second period of development that marks the time.of highest pros perity. The soil has been broken to use, markets have been established all the machinery for the industrial and the social organization of your people has been installed, and the next ten or twenty years should see great changes and rapid progress. If you look at the statistics of growth of the older states to the east, in population, wealth, production and! value of farm property within the last twenty years, you can, by apply ing the same ratio to our present con dition, compute the good fortune that awaits you. North Dakota is going to pay a great profit to every man who has a stake there, "To make sure of this you have to do just what this occasion calls for. You must 'get together.' A stout heart and a united effort make up the secret of success in all communities. Do not spread yourself out too thin. The yield of wheat per acre in North Dakota in 1909 was below what It ought to be. This means that there is more wealth per acre waiting bet ter cultivation and it is part of the value of such gatherings as this that you can take counsel together how it may be done. "You can help one another with advice and experience. There is not a farmer who does not at some time learn something from his own work that would be of service to every other farmer. The exchange of ideas alone will give to the country the one advantage which the city now has in a greater measure. It is a good thing for the tillers of the soil and the merchants, bankers, and other business men of the centers where they deal to get together also and compare notes. For their fu ture ig one and the big lesson which everybody: has to learn is that the success of one part of a community is always conditioned upon and limit ed by the success of every other part. "There is really no limit to what you may do. Your state is one of (the best in the union. The people are alert, hardworking and progress ive. You are connected with all the great markets of the country and the world. Your future is in your own hands. Do not be afraid of it. Study your soil and how to make the most of it. Stand the outlay neces sary to preserve it in the best con dition and assure a full crop. Cul tivate and fertilize it with jealous care, according to the modern ideas taught in your own agricultural schools. Courage, hard work and economy are guarantees against fail ure. "Co-operation is the watchword in all material development today and it should be yours. Farmers and busi ness men, country and town, capital and labor have to help each other. But the future belongs to the man on the farm. With the prices now pre vailing and likely to rule for some years to come, your prosperity is so sure that it is worth the hard work and the planning and the anxiety which may discourage you at times but are only the common lot of all those who carry any enterprise that is worth while to success. "A good state, a good people, a good opportunity these are your ma terials to work with. A good spirit, too, has always distinguished North -Dakota in the past. Avoid false prophets and self-seeking dema gogues. Acting on these lines North Dakota is going to give a good ac count of herself in the near future." Observes the Jamestown Alert: It is high time to call a halt on those members of the press who assail every man who aspires for public of fice. It ought to be a perfectly ligiti mate thing for any respectable citi zen to desire to serve the state. It has, however, como to pass that a man is pilloried on the sharp points of a dozen pencils the moment he becomes a "candidate." Brethren of the tripod, stay your gall and worm wood utterances. It is an open se- cret that you must fill your columns With something and the candidate for office is considered legitimate prey for funny paragrapherg, but it is all "bad medicine'* nevertheless. Only men possessing hides like a hippo, can stand this prickly onslaught, the sensitive fellows away aTe driven away. These thick hided chaps are not always the best officers for a commonwealth. PROPOSED INDIAN MONUMENT. A bill introduced In both houses of congress providing for a colossal statue of the North American In dian to be placed in New York har bor was reported in the house on March 1. This measure was intro duced by Representative Joseph A. Goulden and Senator Chauncey M. Depew, of New York, and provides that there shall be erected without expense to the United- States gov ernment, by Rodman Wanamaker, of New York City, and, «thers, on a United States reservatlon in the har bor of New York, a memorial to the memory of the North American In' dian. It is further provided that a commission consisting of the chair man of the committee on library, of the senate, the chairman of the com mittee on library of the house, and the secretaries of state, war, navy and interior. the attorney general and Robert C. Ogden, of New York, shall be created with full authority to select the site in the harbor of New York and a suitable design, and to contract for and superintend the construction of the memorial. This bill is the result of a sugges tion made by Mr. Rodman Wanamak er, at a celebrated dinner given last May at Sherry's, New York, in hon or of Col. Cody, the famous Indian scout. The idea of erecting a statue of an Indian, with arms outstretched in welcome at the gateway of the New World met with such instant enthusiasm, that there is little doubt but that the measure will meet with unanimous support. While the ways and means of pro viding money to finance the enter prise have not yet been decided upon, it is expected that the statue will be a national monument to perpetuate the memory of the first American, and an opportunity will be given to every one who desires to contribute it is estimated that one penny from every man, woman and child in the United States- will furnish^ .ample means for its erection. Already various tribes of the Or der of Red Men throughout the United States have taken steps to contribute their share to the general fund. It is planned that each of the five hundred thousand members of the Order of Red Men represented in the four thousand tribes in the United States shall contribute two cents each, which would amount to $10,000. A pile of copper cents amounting to $10,000 is far more im posing than a single check for that amount donated by some one Individ ual to whom it would mean so lit tle. The idea of this statue originated with Mr. Rodman Wanamaker, of Philadelphia, during an expedition made by him in 1908, for the purpose of studying the Indian on his own ground. His first impulse was to present the statue to the country, but the consensus of opinion Is that it should be a national gift, and that every child in the country should be allowed to contribute one penny in memory of a race that is fast becom ing extinct. The bill is backed by the entire New York delegation both in the house and in the senate, and is re ceiving the support of the president, the vice president, and many promi nent men in political and financial circles. Very valuable aid is being given to secure the passage of the bill by Serfators Owen, of Oklahoma, and Curtis, of Kansas, and by Repre sentative Carter, of Oklahoma, all of whom trace their ancestry back to the noble Red Man of the Forest.

Japanese roses are to blossom ID Portland (Ore.) parks and squares. Under the sbndow of Mount Hood tbey will thrive as they do in their own islands, with stately Fujiyama looking down upon them.

The roses will be set out in the public squares. Many nations will be represented in the rose planting exercises. Holland bas sent an orange rose emblematic of tbe domination of the bouse of Orange in national affairs. France and Germany will be represented by splendid plants that will show tbe pre-eminence of those countries in rose culture, and It Is hoped to get a bush from Persia, where old Omar so long ago sang the beauties of the queen flower. Other nations, through resident consuls, will present the city with tbe flowering shrubs. MAXINE ELLIOTT'S PROTEGE. Actress to Educate Red Headed News boy Who Gave Her Papers. There was a happy urchin on the St. Paul express of the Lake Shore railroad the other day. He was "Rusty" Mc Gillan,. thirteen, until a few days ago a New York newsboy with no pros pects, now a protege of Maxine Elliott, sent to a military school and with his future brighter than he ever dreamed it could be. Miss Elliott never has lacked admira tion, but none has touched her more deeply than that of Rusty McGillan. She first saw him last season when she was playing at her own theater in VAXINS BXiLXOTT. West Thirty-ninth street, New York. Every evening on her arrival there a red headed newsboy was on tbe spot to open her carriage door and, doffing bis ragged cap, to band her neatly folded evening papers. The boy refused to take pay for them, and Miss Elliott always accepted them with a smile and a thank you. When Miss Elliott came back to play in New York a few weeks ago at Daly's theater Rusty was there *.o open her carriage door and make his small present. She called him into her dressing room, touched by his gal lantry, and learned that his one great ambition was to get an education. And that is why Rusty 'McGillan was sent to the Sbattuck Military academy at Faribault. Minn., which is near St. Paul, where his aunt lives. The boy's real name is Aloyslus. He was born In Boston, but went to New York two years ago upon the death of his mother. His father Is living, but the boy do«?s not know where he is, CHILDREN USING BIPLANES. Pittsburg Swimming Teacher Shows Them a New Sport. The pupils of the Sixth ward public school, north side, in Pittsburgh are learning to imitate the bird and tbe ilsh, an art they call "aeroplane swim ming." They have long enjoyed a fine swimming pool, and their instructor, Walter W. Shook, has been having them use small biplanes. Sara Herz berger, a fourteen-year-old pupil, the other day demonstrated the new game by gliding from a high balcony. When she reached the surface of the water, she shook her "wings," turned a som ersault and dived. Mr. Sbook hopes next summer to take the children out to the rivers and ponds to glide from high boats, bridges and banks. The sport was suggested by a student at tbe Carnegie Technical schools, and those who have tried it say it is a thousand times more thrill ing than the ordinary dive and can be made safely at almost any reasonable height. __ Wooden Bell Syndicate. A "wooden bell" syndicate has been founded in Paris. To "change one's residence to the tune of the wopden bell" means leaving a house or flat surreptitiously by night in order to avoid paying rent, and the purpose of this society is to make this maneu ver easy for irs members.

During a performance of "Captain Lapalisse" at a Valencia theater some years ago an incident occurred which for lifelike effect left nothing to be de sired. During tbe said play some of the actors mingle with the spectators in order to co-operate from the body of the house. No sooner had Miralles, the actor, taken his seat in the stalls than a daring pickpocket robbed bim of bis gold watch. Miralles seized the mau by his coat collar and called out in a deep bass voice: "Police! Help! Thieves:" The audience, taking this little epi sode to be part of the performance. roared with laughter. Even the police men joined in without stirring band or foot. "This is uo farce!" cried tbe actor in tones of despair. "Tbe fellow has got my watch!" Tbe voice sounded so natural that tbe audience broke iuto loud applause at "such excellent fooling." Meanwhile the thief managed to break away from his captor and escaped. Decimals and Duodecimals. Herbert Spencer offered a character istically original system of reckoning. He clung to the duodecimal system, mainly because twelve can be divided by three and four as teu cannot. But, he suggested that all the advantages of both systems might be combined by, making twelve tbe basis of calculation, inventing two new digits to take tbe places of ten and eleven and making twelve times twelv* the hundred. Spencer scornfully remarked that tbe decimal system rests solely on the fact that man has ten fingers and ten toes. If he had bad.twelve "there never would have been any difficulty." A Reversal.
