The May apportionment from the school funds has been figured out, and there is a total of $611,833.98 to be divided among the school districts of the state, being the largest single Apportionment that has ever been made in the history of the state. The figures as given by Superintend ent of 'Public "instruction Stockwell, show that with a school population in the. state of 148,739, there will be a per capita apportionment of $4.11, $4.06 of that coming from the inter est and income fund, and the other nickel from the fines and forfeitures. The May apportionment for 1910 exceeds the entire annual apportion ment of 1908 and will bring the ap portionment for the school year, July 1,1909 to June 30,1910, up to a grand total of $1,199,148.23, or a little over $8 per capita. The apportionment will be made the third Monday in May and should be available for use about the first of June.

HEARSFROMHISSONROY WRITES INTERESTINGLY OF HIS VISIT TO CHINA AND TELLS OF SOME OF THE PECULIARITIES OF THE YELLOW RACE COAL ING OF THE VESSEL IS ONE OF THE MOST INTERESTING OF THE MANY SIGHTS OF THE TRIP. At Sea, March 13, 1910. Dear Folks: We have now left Japan, where we certainly were royally enter tained. Every city we visited en tertained us with different features and the cities were decorated for the occasion. The last night at Nagasaki a parade consisting of over 10,000 people paraded with lan terns, while several bands enlivened things and the fireworks were gor geous. In the afternoon dances were given, exhibitions of archery, wrestling, fencing, sword dancing, etc. We are now on our way to Hong Kong, and from there we go to Canton, China, by river steam ers. There seems to be consider able disturbance in China now and they will not permit us to land only 100 at a time, and we have received all sorts of instructions as to what we are not to do. A policeman and a soldier will be necessary to guard each passenger. The Chinamen in their own country do not seem to take very kindly to the Americans. We are not to make faces at the babies, laugh or look in any but a matter of fact way at anything. They think we have an evil eye. Fried rats, cats, dogs, etc., are deli cacies which we have not yet made up our minds to sample, although the Chinamen claim that fried black cat a cure for baldheadedness. Bird' nests are also a choice deli- On leaving our last port we I had quite a rough sea for a day and night and racks were necessary on the table. I tried breakfast, but passed it up shortly, but managed to retain dinner. The tables were quite deserted, so that those who stayed had plenty of company. We are cautioned to take all sorts of precautions, especially in India, where it will be hard to figure out just what we can eat and drink. We are now just about opposite where the United States are, and we are standing feet to feet. Thousands and thousands of dollars were spent by the members of our party in Japan. The goods and curios offer- WHEAT Shredded Wheat Biscuit made of the whole wheat, steam-cooked, shredded and baked in the cleanest, finest food factory in the world. It is ready-cooked, ready-to-serve. Two Shredded Wheat Biscuits heated in the oven to restore crispness, and eaten with a little hot milk, and salted orsweetened to suit the taste, will supply all the energy needed for a half-day's work. If you like it for breakfast, you will like it for any meal in combination with vegetables, baked apples, sliced bananas, stewed prunes or other fruits. ed are ahead of the United States as to beauty and price, and one could lay in things at a great sav ing here. I met the United States vice consul, and he had dinner at our table on ship. He likes his work having been stationed in this sec tion for ten years. He has been here so long that it seemed quite a cu riosity to him to have white waiters serve us and he certainly enjoyed his meal. We will be quite a long time without mail now, as we do not arrive in Singapore until March 31. Two months from today we land in Naples, and we will then proceed across Europe and hope to get home about July 1st. Amongst our party are a number who will not return for a year or two. We have a great many millionaires on board and oth ers who really have no home, but travel nearly all the time. We also have some who claim to have trav eled a great deal more than their conversation will bear them out in. We have some very entertaining lec turers on board and we are treated to opportunities of hearing them that we would have to pay for on shore. I am now fitted out with clothes for the hot climate, with the exception of a special hat, which we will have to secure in Hong Kong. It was quite a sight to see them coal the ship in Japan. Eighteen hunr dred were required for the work, most of whom were women, and they put 5,000 tons of coal on board in 24 hours, so you can imagine what a busy scene it was. They reminded one of an ant hill. They loaded it with baskets of 25 pounds and the different lines would pass from one to the other, each line putting one on about every second. They can load a ship here with coal quicker than in any other place in the world. I hope you are all well and our stops will be so fast from now on and the weather so hot that the chances are we will only be able to drop postals from the dif ferent landings.—Your son, ROY.

M. B. A. rNITIATE. There were twenty-six candidtes in itiated into the mysteries of the Mod ern Brotherhood of America at their meeting last evening, and there are more to come, so many in fact that the lodge is looking around for a larg er and better arranged meeting room. I The La The Lanphu, Particular attei Ing of The of the in of this hat durabil At a meeting of the executive committee of the Federation of Women's clubs, the dates for the meeting to be held in Bismarck were fixed, Oct. to 14 being selected. The unveiling of the statute of Saka jawea on the capitol grounds will take place at that time, and among the speakers will be Dr. Jenkins Lloyd Jones of Chicago and Profes sor O. J. Libby of the North Dakota university. Several new clubs have been ad mitted to membership in the state federation. Added impetus is being given to the work in all sections. Sakajawea (Bird-woman) was the Shoshone guide of Lewis and Clark across the Rocky mountains in 1804. There is already a beautiful statue of this heroine in the park at Port land, Ore., made by a Chicago wo man artist, with funds raised through the efforts of Mrs. Eva Em ery Dye and others, at the time of the Portland exposition. But Saka jawea is entitled to all the honors that can be paid to her. Designed by Crnnelle The new statue for the city of Bismarck was designed by Leonard Crunelle. It is heroic size, 9 feet tall, and depicts an Indian woman muffed in a blanket, with a papoose upon her back, and her right arm extended as if pointing out the way. Mr. Crunelle visited the Indian reservation at Elbow Woods, N. D., two years ago to study and sketch Indian figures and costumes, and has had the advice of Spotted Wea sel and James Holding Eaglet who For Sale by C. M. DAHL DATES FOR DEDICATION OF THE SAKAHAWEA MON UMENT ARE NOW SELECTED have visited "cnicago to inspect and ™°"e.L.HL„8avIns criticise the statue. The bronze will be cast next June or July, and will tben be shipped to its destination. The legislature of North Dakota ap propriated money for a granite pe destal, which will be placed about half a mile from the Missouri river, so that the figure will face that stream. School Children Gave to Fond The money to pay- for the statue was raised by the Federation of Wo men's clubs of North Dakota and by the school children of the state. The reasons why the women and children should erect a statue to Sakajawea are giv«n in laconic terms in a little circular published by the Women's Federation. First—Sakajawea was the first North Dakotan whose name was en rolled on the pages of history. Second—It is proper that we mark historic spots In our young and ris ing commonwealth. Third—Sakajawea was the only woman to accompany the Lewis and Clark expedition. Fourth—She was their guide and interpreter. Fifth—She protected them when threatened by hostile Tndians. Sixth—She procured for them fool and horses when they were desti tute of both. Seventh—She saved their journals and valuable papers at the risk of her own life. Eighth—She was the only one of the party who received no pecuniary compensation for her services. Ninth—While enduring hardships and suffering, she administered to the necessities of others. Tenth—She welcomed with intelli gent appreciation the civilization of the white race, and was the first Indian west of the Missouri river known to embrace Christianity. Eleventh—She was the first pio neer mother to cross the Rocky mountains and carry her baby Into the Oregon country. Lived in North Dakota The women of North Dakota have good historical ground for claiming Sakajawea as a fellow citizen, be cause, although sue war Shoshone, by birth, and that tribe lived farther) west, in the mountains of Wyoming, she was captured by th« Gros Ventre Indians of North Dakota when she was eleven years old, was brought up by them, wore their costume and they bestowed upon her name Tsa ka-ka-wi-ash, which means "bird woman." The name is often spelled Sa-ka-ka (bird) Wia-a (woman). After the return of Lewis and Clark to the east she went to her own tribe, whose headquarters were near the present city of Lander, Wyo., and there lived until her death in 1884 at the supposed a»fr of 125 years. She is buried in the Epis copal cemetery near the aguncy. Several of her descendants are now living on the Shoshone reser vation, and her son, known as "Old Brazil," has been prominent, ia trib al affairs.

In all probabilities coffee users in Bismarck are a least bit skeptical in regard to the brand they use. If you want a good cup of coffee we suggest that you try Hiawatha, put up in one and two pound packages and retailed at 20 and 40 cents per package. This coffee, without a doubt, is superioir to other grades sold at this price. The stock of teas that Gussner handles are in keeping with other high grade goods sold, in quality and price. The carload of canned fruit that we purchased recently in California, is possibly the-best quality that has been on any merchant's shelf in Bismarck. We want you to try a can of our fruit and if it does not prove to be what we advertise we will gladly re fund your money. We save our cus tomers twenty-five per cent on canned fruit, as well as other merchandise. You can readily see that you make money DuyIns at Gussners. To those who have not tried our grain fattened meats if you once try them and find that juicy flavor that they possess, you will be convinced immediately that they have only a peer, and their peer is found in the same kind at Gussners. The sausage, lard and bacon that is made in a clean work shop and with the best of care, will certainly be appreciated, and people will eat more of it when they know it is home made and has not been stored in pack ing houses for months, or years. Try what we request above, and you will always be a customer of ours. George Gussners. Phon 60. Try Tribune Want Columns.
