POLITICS ASIDE—NOW BUSINESS The primary election is over, and the result will be abided by all good republicans as the will of the major ity of the republican party. The primary campaign has been long enough, and the candidates and vot ers will no doubt be glad it is otrer. There will be disappointment, as inevitable in a campaign in which so many candidates participate. There will be differences of opinion as to the wisdom of some of the results, no doubt. But generally speaking, the will of the majority in a fair election, is with safety abided by. The Tribune has endeavored through the campaign to deal with, all candi dates fairly, to avoid criticism, and to eliminate the personalities that go frequently to make a campaign dis tasteful and unpleasant. Now that the primary is over there will be a breathing spell for voters and candi dates until the campaign begins for the fall election. There will be other things to consider beside poli tics. Crop conditions in the state will afford opportunity for some fruit ful consideration and some wise fin anciering and business economics. It will be a time for wise business sense and the business men, the banks and the general business interests of the state will have need to unite for the common good. The wheat crop of the state will be short. But timely rains, such as that of yesterday, will push along the corn crop, and flax, pota toes, hay and other crops will be benefitted. The state is getting so large in population and products, that the partial failure of a single crop is no longer to be considered a cal amity. At the same time, it will have an effect in reducing the sum total of business, curtailing the demand for labor and putting a temporary stop to railroad building and some other constructive operations. It will have little effect upon the state, except a temporary one, as the same conditions prevail over the entire spring wheat belt, and no one north western state can claim an exemption from unusual conditions. MONEY FROM OLD STOCKINGS As soon as the new system of pos tal banks goes into operation there should be an end to the hiding of money on the person or in suppos edly well concealed places about the premises. Trunks are not safe de positories, nor are carpet edges, dark crannies or stove holes. Uncle Sam will shortly offer to receive deposits of money at designated post offices from any person over ten years of age and will pay two per cent inter est. A class who will not trust any bank, however unreasonable such overcautious people may be, is known to exist, and now the question is if they will have faith enough in the national government to confide a sur plus of money to it, at interest, rather than carry it around sewed in clothing or in the traditional stocking stuffed in some old nook presumed to be un noted by the lynx eyes of the dishon est. A large amount of currervy is believed to be kept out of circula tion by hoarding of this hazardous sort. The new law should bring it out. One argument for the passas-e of the law assumed that the money now in concealment would be poured into the active channels of business. Postal banks are an old institution in other leading countries, where their depositors have the benefit of a cash credit with the government, and the money is available at any post office. A Canadian depositor, for ex ample, wherever he may travel, has what is practically a government let ter of credit to the extent ol his de- posit, and needs but to identify him self at any Dominion postofflce to draw upon or add to it. France, the most famous land of thrift for men, women and children, has a great ag» gregate of postal deposits, and the French people, under government vigi lance, are accustomed to oversub scribe a public loan, or to pick up a good bargain, even if a atilliard or two are required. Under the new law in the United States a deposit of $1.00 will be received, but a system of sav ing by dimes will be facilitated. The maximum of a deposit is fixed at $500. Evidently, the design is to encourage saving among persons of small means, under the government guarantee of security. Ordinary savings banks pay a much larger rate of Interest and will continue their large utilities on a proved second basis. EFFECT OF SUGGESTION. It Can Fill Our Livea With Gladnesa OP With Miaery. Then' is uothing that plays so impor tant 11 part in the daily life of men and women as does suggestion, says li. Addington Bruce in the Delinea tor. Mentally, morally and to a large extent physically we are what we are because of its Influence. Sugges tiou cau make of us saints or crimi nals, heroes or cowards. It can lift ns from beds of sickness or doom us to a hopeless invalidism. It can fill our lives with gladness or with mis ery. It is a great force ceaselessly operative, unescapable. But it is a force that we cau nevertheless direct and utilize if we only understand its laws, and the more wisely, the more persistently, the more thoroughly we use it. the happier and healthier we shall be. No matter how many setbacks come, keep repeating to yourself optimistic autosuggestions. Repetition is one of the most forceful instruments of sug gestion. There is a great truth under lying the familiar saying "As a man thlnketh. so is he." Moreover, you can utilize the law of repetition to draw from your surroundings beneficial sug gestions that will powerfully re-en force your autosuggestions. You can do so because every detail in your en vironment is of suggestive value to. you, and. although no one can make this environment all that it should be. nevertheless it is quite within your power to modify It in such a way that It will give you a maximum of help ful and a minimum of harmful sugges tions. A FAMOUS TIMEPIECE. The Astronomical Clock at Hampton Court Palace. The famous astronomical clock at Hampton Court palace, near London, is the first timepiece of that character erected in England and was made for Henry VIII. in 1540. According to Er nest Law. the historian of Hampton Court palace, it was the creation of Nicholas Cratzer, a German astrono mer, who visited England at the invi tation of Cardinal Wolsey. who intro duced him to the king. It is possible to learn from it the hour, the mouth, the day of the month, the position of the sun and the number of days since the beginning of the year, phases of the moon and its age, the hour at which it crosses the meri dian and the time of high water at London bridge. The winding of the clock occupies half an hour every week. The weights descend to a depth of more than sixty feet. Like many other things about the palace, it has its legends. It is related that when Anne of Denmark, queen of James 1.. died in the palace the clock, which was striking 4 at the mo ment, immediately stopped. This it is said to do whenever any old resident in the palace dies within Its precincts, and alleged modern Instances of the fact are quoted solemnly by the credu lous.—Argonaut. How Ha Won Her. A man who married his stenogra pher won her through sheer persisten cy. Although it was evident to the wooer that the young woman did not regard him entirely without favor, he found It extremely difficult to get her to listen to his plea. The stenographer refused to lunch, sup or go to the the ater with her admirer. Finding every avenue of approach blocked, the de termined courter. who possessed some literary facility, wrote a short love story, in which the girl and he were the leading figures. This story he sent to the stenographer every morning for a month and ordered her to typewrite it for hiin. She dared not refuse to do as her employer commanded, and. realizing through the story that he would uever give up until she married him, she finally acquiesced.—Chicago Record-Herald. They Paid the Price. The corporation of the city of Glas gow wanted to purchase the Whistler portrait of Carlyle and In due course waited on the master of the gentle art of making enemies about the price (1.000 guineas). They admitted It was a magnificent picture, but "Do you not think, Mr. Whistler, the sum a wee. wee hit excessive?" "Didn't you know the price before you came to me?" asked the master. with suspicious blandness. "Oh, aye, we knew that!" replied the corporation. ""Very well, then." said Mr. "Whistler In his suavest tones, "let's talk of something else." And as there was nothing else of Interest to detain the "corporation" they paid the price and made an excellent bargain. 3 America and Its ^Magnetic Attractiveness. NOW, WHA IS IT?

BISMARCK DAILY TR1BUNZ MERICA to the English mind is a place of financial A pilgrimage or sojourn it is a worthy place to make A money in, but the idea of abiding here for good and all seems a bleak and homeless thought. Make your money in America as fast as you can and then GET OUT AS FAST AS YOU CAN. America to the English mind is a VAST WORKSHOP, a "sounding labor house vast of being." No man thinks of making his home in his workshop. No his work done, he TAKES HIS WAGES AND HURRIES BACK HOME to England or Italy or China to spend them. Probably of all Europeans the Irish or the Germans make them selves most at home in this country but, none the less, one does now and again come across an English American who, returning to Eng land on a visit, has unaccountably found his taste for the old country gone and is as rejoiced as any native born American to sight once more the soaring towers of New York and BREATHE ONCE MORE ITS MAGNETIC ATMOSPHERE. AND WHE N AN ENGLISHMAN DOES FALL IN LOVE WIT AMERICA IT 13 LIABLE TO BE A LIFELONG AFFAIR. DOUBTLESS IT WAS TH E MONEY THAT FIRST BROUGHT HIM HERE, BUT IT IS SOMETHING ELSE THAT KEEPS HI HERE. YEARS AND UPWARD—AT ALL SEASONS OF TH E YEAR, AND. FURTHER, IT IS AS EXCELLENT FOR E 8ICK AND Who has not heard that certain exercises are good for us because they "shake up" the liver But it is not the best thing in the world to shake up the liver violently unless one is a trained athlete, and ordi nary men and women are very far from being in that category. Exer cise increases largely the liver's production both of bile and of sugar hence if it be more violent than that to which one is accustomed more bile and sugar may be formed than can be taken care of by the sys tem and the subject may have what is called in popular parlance a "bilious attack." Now, this is where walking comes in as a happy medium in exercise. We can often "WALK OFF" A HEAD ACHE OR A DIGESTIVE DISTURBANCE when running would only aggravate the trouble. It is a fact supported by the highest authority that a moderate exercise, such as walking, is a great aid to digestion (to run would re tard it)—in other words, you wil* DIGEST YOUR DINNER BETTER IF YOU WALK IMMEDIATELY AFTER HAVING EATEN IT than if you sit still. Try this, and if you are thin you will GAIN IN WEIGHT, besides saving more in the cost of living than you will lose in the wear and tear of shoe leather. But suppose you are already corpulent. Will walking after meals, in that case, make you stouter No. Paradoxical as the statement may sound, walking will in that case MAKE YOU THINNER. THIS IS E "SPRING MEDICINE" SEASON. HOW MUCH BET TER WE ALL COULD FEEL IF WE TOOK TO WALKING JUST AS W E TAKE TO SPRING MEDICINE. WALKING IS LESS EXPENSIVE, EASIER TO GET, AND E BENEFITS ARE INCALCULABLE. Walking, then, in the open air is an exercise par excellence for everybody. It shakes up the liver just enough to keep it ia good work ing order, it ENRICHES THE BLOOD by increasing its amount of oxygen, thus favoring the destruction and elimination from the system of poisonous waste products, particularly by the lungs, skin and kidneys, and finally by stimulating activity of nutrition in the mus cles it TENDS TO PREVENT-THE DEPOSITION OF MOR BID MATTERS OF A TUBERCULOUS OR CANCEROUS NATURE. The School Should Be A Place of Health. By G. STANLEY HALL. President of Clark University.

Sci ence should not be all technique, but should im press a few general principles to GIVE LOVE AND SYMPATHY WITH NATURE AND COMMAND OF THE RESOURCES OF SCI ENCE FOR DAILY LIFE. Religion should be vital and positive and not chiefly either dogmatic on the one hand or skeptical on the other. THE GOSPEL OF HEALTH SHOULD BE PROMI NENT, AND THE SCHOOL SHOULD BE A PLACE OF HEALTH.

KITTERY POINT ELMS. Each of tha Giant Shade Treaa Coat a Pint of Rum. One of the most striking attractions of the old town of Kittery Point has long been her towering elms. They rise magnificently above trees of all other varieties, and in summer with their foliage encompass her quaint streets in delicious green coolness, transform the fine old place into a ver itable seashore fairyland and last, but not least, enrapture the summer visitor. For nearly two miles along the high way, which for the most part follows the shore of the harbor, these splendid specimens rear themselves at fairly regular intervals, though the ax has in times past brought some of the mon arcLs crashing to the earth. The story of the circumstances at tending the planting of the giants, as. it has been banded down from father to son, runs as follows: "'Major Thom as Cutts, one of the old town fathers, who conducted a fishing business, for eign commerce, a store and a tavern in the famous Pepperell mansion (built 1662), conceived the very commendable idea of beautifying his native town by setting out trees. "Accordingly in 1791 he gave one Samuel Blake the contract. Samuel's remuneration was nothing more or less than a pint of rum, doubtless brought from the West Indies by one of the major's pinkies, for each tree planted. There were originally ninety of them, and they extended from the Seavey lot, near where the First Christian cburcb now stands, to the 'top of the Point' or the shore of Spruce creek."— Kennebec Journal.

A NATIONAL MINE BUREAU Great Opportunity In Front ot New Department. SAFEGUARDS FOR WORKERS. Unitad Stataa Authorities to Inveati ,ate All Poaaibla Cauaaa of Mina Aeeidanta and Methods Bast Adaptad to Meat Shaft Danger*—Shot Firer That Eliminate* Riak of Livaa. The machinery for tbe investigation and prevention of great coal mine dis asters like the Cherry Are In Illinois at last has been provided by congress. President Taft has signed the law passed recently by both bouses of con gress to establish a national bureau of mines in the interior department, and tbe work of organization of the bureau will be begua soon. Officials of the geological survey de clare that no branch of the United States government will have opportu nity for greater work in tbe preserva tion of buuiau life and the protection of property from waste than the new bureau. The facts demanded by a Chicago paper immediately after tbe Cherry disaster and called for ly Senator Culloni of Illinois in a resolution he introduced ia the senate in December. 1909. showed that tbe government mine rescue stations covered only a portion of the mining region of the country and that federal experts bad no authority to investigate any mine disasters except those caused by ex plosions. What New Bureau Will Do. The great work that has been done in this line by the geological survey has proved the need for money anc authority for the government to un dertake further investigations and ex periments to supply absolute data and adequate safeguards for workers in every branch of tbe mining industry. Mine explosions which the government now investigates constitute only 15 per cent of the accidents that happen. Tbe new bureau of mines will take over from the geological survey the work of testing explosives, investigat ing explosions, experimenting with fuels and the testing of structural ma terials, in which work the government has been spending $350,000 annually for two years. It will add to this the investigation of_..all -possible causes .of mJoe. .sxci- No matter how small the town- (Fno matter how big—there's always a nearby branch for the ^n§m CIGAR, PARK, GRANT & MORRIS, Distributors Fargo and Grand Forks Thursday, Ju|e 30, 1910. matron"* tasters. yn\ dents, cTetefmfhatIdii~|f? causes of "Bros and like disasters Investigation ot character and action df gas, dust, damp and other dangers exfsting in eoal and metal mines and methods best adapted to meeting these dangers and protect tag mine workers against them. No Interference With Stat*. State mine authorities have raised objections in the past to the establish ment of a national bureau of mines on the ground that it would result in a conflict between state and federal au thorities. It is made clear under the new law that there is to be no at tempt on the part of the government to regulate mining operations or to Interfere in any way with state Inspec tion. Thousands of lives/are lost in Amer ican mines because it lack of uniform systems of signals, standard method* of using fuses and explosives and effi cient methods of mine rescue work. This lack will be supplied, it is b«~ lieved, through the investigations aud recommendations of the new bureau of mines. Mine rescue stations at Pittsburg, Urbana, 111., and other points have demonstrated their great^ value In the protection of life and property. The most hazardous work of thw hazardous occupation of coal miners I* the firing of the blasting powder, or. as it is known to miners, "shot firing." The men who do this work are simi larly called "shot flrers." They enter the mine after the miners have com pleted their day's work and gone home. Invariably the shot flrer rushes bin work, firing shots rapidly, creating large quantities of gases caused by the ignition of large charges of pow der. Then comes an ill placed shut or badly judged shot, causing what is known in mining parlance as a "windy shot," thus providing all the elements for an explosion, which In variably occurs, causing loss of lite and damage to property. Recently there was patented an auto matic electric "shot flrer" by Charle I. Dodson of Kansas City, which, after being put to the practical test of a thirty days' trial In a large mine near Pittsburg, Kan., has been recoin' mended by the United States geolog leal survey. The apparatus takes th* place of the "shot flrer" and render* unnecessary his services In a .coal mine, thus eliminating one of th»» greatest dangers to life and property in the mining Industry. The maehhu is a complete electriV plant and has no outside assistance It consists of a specially constructed clock and self exciting direct current dynamo, with specially constructed mechanical parts. The machine is made to operate by Inserting a key and pulling up a rack bar, which ou being released by the clock at any time desired descends and rotates the armature of the dynamo by being con nected with gear wheels. It thus generates current sufficient to explode •hots or blasts connected.
