State Contest Will Be Held Next Tuesday Evening Good Results Are Expected/ The Burleigh county spelling con test was held in the courtroom last Friday evening. Unfortunately the inclement weather reduced the num* ber of contestants to thirteen in place of twenty-one who had enter ed and reported from the different parts of the county. The contest was watched with great interest by a well filled house of chidren and par ents. The first part of the work con sisted in one hundred written words and then fifty rounds of oral spell ing. After averaging the results of the written and oral spelling the re suts were as follows: Paul Cook 97% Cleland Rice 98% Elsie Serres 99 Eva Carlson .. 100 AJice Wall 79% Dewey Olson 88% Martin Lang 92 Eva Hess 99 Ruth Nichols 99 Gertrude Mount 98 Rilla Marshall 99 Bessie Roth 100 Julia Ferris 96% This left a tie between Eva Carlson and Bessie Roth neither of whom had missed a single word and these 'two were then given twenty addi I tional words selected by Prof. Moore. I The final result gave Eva Carlson the championship of Burleigh county iwith Bessie Roth a close second. I Eva Carlson will be the county dele 'gate at the state contest which will jbe held in this city next Tuesday 'evening. When one will take into consider 'ation that eacu one of the contest ants actually spelled 150 words the results given above show an excep tionally good record. The three low jest were probably the three youngest contestants and for that reason did 'excel Iant work. Next year will bring them right to the front. It goes with out saying that these spelling con I tests in the various counties in the 'state will result in better spelling all along the line. Those who did not happen to win first prize have no erason to feel anything but pride at the excellent showing they have made.

In a letter received by the Tribune yesterday morning, from S. A. Schnorr of Spencer. la., in which he enclosed an advertisement offering some land for sale in. the vicinity of Bismarck. He noted at the bottom of the correspondence that it's common gossip in Iowa, and we may add thru out the country in general, that North Dakota is on a boom. His letter was acknowledged and that he was in formed that he was mistaken, that the state was only receiving its just note worthy and natural growth, as to the advantages it offers to the agricul turist, and in fact any kind of in dustry. It is conceded by some peo pie that a boom is near, and possib ly Mr. Schnorr may conclude to hold a portion of the the good North Da kota soil after being informed of the true conditions. The Tribune has re ceived many letters of this nature, and each and every one are taken care of in this manner.

The Care That Should Be Bestowed Upon These Songsters. Those who are charmed by the sing ing of the canary will find in the fol lowing directions much that will In crease the happiness of the songster, provided the hints are heeded: Place the cage so tbat no draft of air can strike the bird. Give nothing to healthy birds but rape and canary seed, water, cuttlefish bone and grav el paper or sand on the floor of the cage no hempseed a bath three times a week. The room should not be over heated—never above 70 degrees. Wben moulting (shedding feathers) keep warm, avoid all drafts of air. Give plenty of German rape seed. A little hard boiled egg mixed with crackers grated fine is excellent. Feed regularly at a certain hour in the morning. By observing these sim ple rules birds may be kept in fine condition for years. For birds that are sick or have lost tbeir song procure bird tonic at a bird store. Very many keep birds who mean to give their pets all things to make them bright and happy and at the same time are guilty of great cru elty In regard to perches. The perches In a cage should be each-one of a dif ferent size and tbe smallest as large as a pipestem. If perches are of the right sort no trouble is ever had about the bird's toe nails growing too long, and, of all things, keep the perches clean.—Ex change. A Curious Painting. In Japan there is a very famous painting which so amount of money could buy and which is the master piece of. a famous artist who lived sev eral centuries ago. Viewing the paint ing in tile daytime, one is disappoint ed. It shows nothing more than a very commonplace landscape unrelieved by mountains- or bills. As soon, however, as night foils one begins to realize the peculiar merit of the picture, for upon the canvaa there appears a luminnous water buffalo (caribou) browsing upon the grass at its feet. The artist who painted this picture discovered a cer tain phosphorescent paint, which be obtained from the bodies of certain molluska or fisb, and with which be painted' the buffalo that, invisible in daylight,, is Inminously brilliant in the dark. The secret of making this paint died' with the artist The picture, which bangs in a Buddhist temple, has proved' a fertile source of superstition, the priests claiming that the buffalo hides- away in the shade behind some trees-in the picture during the beat of the day, coming out at night to graze. Startled Their Host. A New Yorker decided to give a din ner in recognition of hospitality show ered, upon him by his friends recent ly. He asked two women he knew to go to a jeweler's and pick out some little souvenirs for the women guests, says tbe New York Sun. The host did not know it, but a detective accompa nied tbe gifts to tbe house. Each wo man found at ber place at the table a handsome box. When these were opened there were cries of admiration. One woman drew out a diamond ring, another an emerald brooch, another a diamond crescent, a fourth a necklace of pearls, another a diamond tiara, and so on, until tbe output of tbe boxes represented about $50,000. The host had forced a smile wben the first box was opened. As each trinket re vealed seemed more costly than the last his jaw fell. Perspiration began to trickle down his face, which got so red that the women became alarmed. Then they explained tbat the jewels were a joke and were borrowed for the occasiou. The Picture In the Watch. The following anecdote is related of Jerome Bonaparte: He had been play ing cards until be lost all his ready money, then pledged his rings and finally laid his watch on the table. It was a small gold one, the back of which opened with a spring. A lady overlooking the game admired the watch and took it up to examine it On her attempting to open tbe back Jerome immediately clasped it and said that must not be done. His wife, who stood by, insisted upon knowing what was in it, grew angry, reproach ed him with having some keepsake of favorite there and finally, bursting Into tears, quit the room. Jerome then opened the watch and showed to all present that It contained a beautiful miniature of his first wife, Betsy Pat terson, with the remark. "You see, I hope, that I could not with propriety let her see it." It was notorious tbat be remained deeply attached to bis first wife long after their separation. The Mule's Ears. Evolutionists explain satisfactorily that tbe reason that tbe dog's ears lop Is because for centuries the animal has been domesticated by man and has lain within the protecting influence of his hut and fire. Tbe dog's ears are said to have originally stood upright, as do the wolf's today, but gradually as the necessity for keen bearing be came less imperative the dog's ears began to lop. But how about the mule? It is the duty of somebody to explain why the mule's ears have not lopped down. There is no need for him to have stiff ears. The donkey, the horse and their progeny, the mule, have been under man's protecting in fluence for centuries and ages. The ass is the beast of burden of the Bible. His ears were stiff then, and they are stiff now. It would seem it was about time for them to begin to lop a little. —Indiana Farmer. A Very Queer Custom. A curious custom takes place in vil lages of the Luxembourg district, Bel gium, in May. After Sunday service numbers of lads cluster round the church entrance and as the girls come out seize them one by one. one lad grasping a giri by the shoulders and the other by the heels, the two lifting her well up. while a third bumpkin passes under the human bridge thus formed. This is done in tbe presence of the parents, who themselves have passed through tbe same ordeal. His Sole Resting Place. A precise Boston teacher spent a quarter of an hour in impressing upon her class the right pronunciation of the word vase.

HOUSE PROBLEM STILL TROUBLESBISMARGK IN SPITE OF LARGE AMOUNT OF BUILDING IN THE PAST NO HOUSES FOR RENT. Expected That More Building Wflf Be Done This Year Than In Any Year in the Past. It seems remarkable that wilt alt the houses which have been, built in Bismarck during the last three or four years that there are never enough to go around and this spring they are scarcer than ever. One real estate dealer has sold three houses already this spring to outside parties coming here to live .these people being unable to rent any thing. The prospects are that there will be more houses built this year than ever before. Already work has begun on a large number in all parts of the city and as fast as it is an nounced that some one is going to build for rent his house is rented ev en before work is started. Even good building lots are growing scarce where one can reach the water and sewer. The casual observer would think there are plenty of vacant lots around until he discovers that a great part of these are owned by peo ple who have bought them in the past year or two to build on ani who will not, for that reason, sell out. Tbe pressure on the lot question will be greatly relieved by the open ing of the new addition next week and it is expected there will be a good many houses built out that way this summer. There ought to be for if Bismarck keeps going ahead very long in the way it has the past few years we cannot take care of the good people coming here. New faces are seen on the streets every day, the hotels and boarding houses are filled with traveling and business men who are locating here and every week we hear of some business or industry starting in. It used to be that every one knew ev eryone else but its that way no more and Bismarckers wlil mighty soon wake up to the fact that Bismarck is no longer a frontier town depend ing on the Black Hills Trail and the river traffic but is the distributing center of a great empire. Look around and note for your self the improved appearance of the city as compared with only a very few years ago and you will agree with every outsider who comes here, "that Bismarck is the best looking and the best city in North Dakota."
