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
"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
"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

"bad medicine'* nevertheless. Only

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
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.

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
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,
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. __

Too Realistic.
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
"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."
