We find in tbe insurgent campaign
literature that is being sent out that
Senator McCumber owns no home in
North Dakota, but has a "palace" in
Washington. This is intended to
prejudice the people of the state
against the senator, and is the mean
est and most despicable type of dem
agogism. Of course, Senator McCum
ber has a home in Washington, a
modest residence, inasmuch as it is
necesary for him and his family to
live there a great share of the time,
and it is necessary that they have
a place to live. A senator is elected
for six years, and if he has a family,
the matter of a place to live in the
national capital is a first considera
tion, and he is fortunate if he is able
to own a home there, for the matter
of his comfort and convenience and
that of his family. The state of
North Dakota certainly does not be
grudge its senator the matter of a
suitable place to live in the city
where he performs his official duties.
As to the senator's interest in this
state, they are substantiaFand were
earned by long residence and hard
work in North Dakota.
As well might a charge be made
against a state officer by his home
people that he owns a home at the
capital city. The duties of a states
officer require him to live at the state
capital, and it does not make him
any less worthy the support and re
spect of his home people if he owns
a home at the capital of the state for
the time of his residence there. We
take it either Mr. Marshall or Mr.
Gronna would gladly own a home in
Washington—if it carried with it the
United States senatorship for six
A few years ago land in the west
ern part of the state went begging
There were five or six million acres
of land open to homestead in the Bis
marck land district alone. Other
land districts in the western part of
the state offered abundant opportuni
ties to settlers to locate on free land
and prove up on it. Great tracts
west of the Missouri river sold for a
few dollars an acre. Some sold for
as low as a dollar and a dollar and
a quarter. One man who invested in
a large tract of land in Morton coun
ty recently admitted that he made
on the tract "a million dollars more
than he expected." To show the
Change in conditions it is well to note
that at a sale of isolated tracts at
the Bismarck land office the other
day one tract sold for $23.75 an acre.
It was purchased by a farmer who
paid for it with cash. A recent sale
of an isolated tract in the Dickinson
district brought $25 an acre—also
purchased by a farmer. He paid
down $1,000 cash for a forty acre
tract. This shows that the value of
western North Dakota land is com
ing to be appreciated. The govern
ment land is practically all gone in
the Bismarck district. It is going
fast in the other land districts. Far
mers are anxious to add to their
holdings. Improved farming methods,
the steam and gasoline plow, and
^better machinery for seeding make it
possible to farm much larger tracts.
'The farmers are anxious to have pas
ture land, in addition to wheat land.
They. want to add some cows to
their holdings and sell cream and
butter and beef. More land is being
planted to corn and tame fodder. The
free, grazing lands are gone, add will

North Dakota are changing rapidly.

Wahpeton Gazette: One of the
most silly things that have appeared
in the campaign literature sent out
by the progressive republican com
mittee is the statement that Senator
McCumber.does not own a home in
North Dakota, but does own a "man
sion" in Washington. Mr. McCumber
owned a home in this city until sev
eral years after he was elected sen
ator. He still owns several lots in
the city and nearly all the property
he has is in North Dakota. He does
own a modest home in Washington,
which, owing to the high rents there,
he was forced to buy in order to live
within his income. The Thos. Mar
shall organs attempt to make it ap
pear that Senator McCumber's inter
ests are with the "eastern million
aires," but those who knew him know
that his interests are still in North
Dakota as they always have been.

Insurgent newspapers regularly tell" heals and strengthens the mucous
us of the "demonstration" that is
made by the people in honor of these
heroes in their triumphal tour of the
state. But once in a while some bru
tal editor tells the whole truth, even
as the Devils Lake Journal does in
tbe following:
"Judge W. S. Lauder, one of the
smartest men in North Dakota, visit
ed Devils Lake yesterday. He was
advertised to speak here last night at
the court house. He was advertised
well, too. For several days the ad
vertisement of the meeting had been
running in the Journal. It had also
been advertised in the Inter-Ocean.
Lithographs with the judge's hand
some face beaming like an early sun
rise were much in evidence around
town—in store windows, nailed to
telephone poles and on livery stables.
The hour for the speaking approached,
but the populace did not—approach.
The minutes sped on and the Judge's
heart grew heavy. How it happened
may never be known, but ten people
straggled in, curiosity bent. And
then Jim Shea, the United States
marshal, walked in. That was the
straw which broke the camel's back,
as the saying goes. The judge could
conceal his emotion no longer. He
had known old Jim Shea down in
Richland. He knew that Jim knew
him, also. Perhaps that was the
reason. But no matter. The judge
languidly arose and made bis speech.
It was not very long, and it did not
take long to tell it. He said that he
had come to Devils Lake to make a
speech in which he desired to dis
cuss the issues of the campaign from
the standpoint of an insurgent or
progressive republican, but inasmuch
as there were but few—too few—in
attendance of the meeting, it would
be an imposition upon the taxpayers
to make them pay for the electric
light meter which was doing business
in the basement. Therefore the meet
ing was then and there adjourned
sine die. Before the gavel fell on
the last act of the sombre assem
blage, the judge intimated that if

Members of the Congregation Are
Planning for Reception of the State
Convention in September.
The Baptists of the city were hap
py last night, and were amiable hosts
and hostesses at a public entertain
ment of their friends, when they cele
brated the completion of the base
ment of the church, which makes a
splendid addition to the comforts and
conveniences of the building.
The new basement, or' rather the
completed basement, is commodious
and pleasant, nicely furnished, and
its completion is a matter of satisfac
tion to the members of the church,
Rev. Newcomb and all of the active
workers who began the work just a
little over three months ago.
There are nicely appointed recep
tion rooms, cloak rooms, toilet rooms,
and a large assembly hall, in which
social occasions may be held. There
is also a kitchen v/ith all accessories,
either on hand or soon to be install
ed and the members of the church
have every reason to congratulate
themselves upon the finishing of their
In commemoration and celebration
of the completion of the basement and
its dedication to church uses, a pleas
ing program was given at the church
last night, prior to the reception and
dedication of the basement. The au
dience present completely filled the
church auditorium.
G. W. Bowden, who has been ac
tive in the work for the completion
of tbe basement of the church, and
who is an active worker for the in
terests of the institution, presided,
and he spoke of the gratification of
the members at the completion of
their work. He also presented those
who contributed to the evening's pro
Prayer was offered by W. E. Par
sons, another active member of the
church. A violin solo was effectively
rendered by Miss Ellen Acheson, with
Mrs. Petrie at the organ. Jas. W.
Foley read several verses, and a very
interesting presentation of the mys
teries of wireless telegraphy was giv
en by Mr. James Doran, with appara
tus illustrating the marvels of the
wireless, which proved a very inter
taining exhibition and lecture.
After the completion of the pro
gram, ice cream and cake were serv
ed to the guests in the new assembly
room in the basement. The guests
were presented at the door and receiv
ed by Rev. Newcomb, Mrs. Smith and
Mr. Schutt.
The Brotherhood and the churcb
set out originally to raise $1,500 to
complete the basement and furnish
the rooms, and they have met with
splendid encouragement, all of the
sum having been raised but about
$200. When this is paid, it will leave
the church clear and nothing but a
mortgage on the parsonage, which Is
not so large but it can be cleared off
without difficulty. The business men
of the city have responded liberally
to the requests of the soliciting com
mittee and the church people have
come forward nobly to the work in
The membership of the church is
now the largest it has been in its,
history and the enthusiasm in all de-l
partments sbows the result of the
general optimism and advance.
The Baptist state convention will
meet in the city in September, and
the church will have tbe honor of re
ceiving delegates- from the Baptist
church of the entire state. R. B.
Griffith of Grand Forks, is the state
president of this convention, and the
state meeting is looked forward to
with great interest.

Not Sleep nor Even Dross Himself
—Doctors Failed to Help Him.
"I am a man seventy years old. My
hands were very sore and cracked open
on the insides for over a
year with large sores.
They would crack open
and bleed, itch, burn
and ache so that I could
not sleep and could do
but little work. They
were so bad that I could
not dress myself in the
morning. They would
bleed and the blood
dropped on the floor. I
called on two doctors,
but they did me no good.
I could get nothing to do
me any good till I got the
Cuticura Soap and Cuticura Ointment.
About a year ago my daughter got a cake
of Cuticura Soap and one box of Cuti
cura Ointment and in one week from the
time I began to use them my hands were
all healed up and they have not been
a mite sore since. I would not be with
out the Cuticura Remedies.
