OUST AND GOEDETIC S MEN HERE HAVE BEEN DETERMINING THE INTENSITY OF GRAVITY. Results of Calculations From All Over the Country Will Be js'jd to Determine Size and Shape of Earth. H. D. King and T. L. Warner ot Washington, D. C, will leave che city this morning for Hinsdale, \Va3h., after spending a week in the capital city, where they have been working in the interests of the goedetic branch of the Coast and Goedetic Survey of the Department of Commerce arid Labor. The young men have been deterraia ing the intensity of gravity at ibis point.

This is the third season of this particular n vestlgation in the country, and it will require at least one more /ear to finish the work. The gentlemen who have been working at Bismarck have already made computations at four stations this year, and they have sev I en more to make in the northwest before-.the 3eason closes. The intensity of gravity is deter mined by the period of swing ot stan dardized pendulums. The pendulums are standardized at the base statin at Washington, D. C, twice a year. The computation between the period of swing of the pendulums at Wash ington and the period of swing at the different stations throughout the coun-1 try gives the intensity of gravity at the stations relative to the intensity of gravity at Washington. The actual observations at each station consume forty-eigTit hours, and begin and end with accurate astronomical determi nations of time. The object of the work Is primarily of scientific interest, and value rather than practical. The results form an important contribution to data from which the exact size and form of the, aturdaw Julf ITEM ONE 6@irs®tts Specia Pric for today only Three styles. Supporters side and front.

More particular ly the pendulum and gravity work will help determine just what the shape of the earth is. The data obtai\^d are used to de termine to a certain extent also what constitutes the earth's crust. Recent investigations have been made of the rigidity and density of the crust of the earth in varic/s localities, and the in tensity of gravity bHps determine the density, as gravity is affected by density. For example, at one station where there were heavy ore bodies underlying the surface of the arth, the Intensity of gravity at that point was slightly increased. The results of the work of this branch of the service when completed, which will be at the end of another year or thereabouts, will be combined with a great amount of primary trian gulation and astronomical work to de termine with greater precision than ever the exact figure of the earth. During the investigations of one of the previous years a station in the eastern part of North Dakota was computed, but Bismarck is the only station in the state where the work is to be carried on this season. $3.50 values today $2.80 4.25 values today 3.40 6.75 values today 5.40 8.50 values today 6.80 10.00 values today 8.00 BISMARCK DAILY TRIBUNE THE ARMOUR COMPANY BRANCH HOUSE OF THE LARGE PACKERS WILL COMMENCE TO DO BUSINESS AT BISMARCK MONDAY, JULY 25, WHEN THE FIRST CAR LOAD OF MEAT WILL ARRIVE IN THE CITY FOR DISTRIB- The Armour company has decided to locate a br,anch house at Bis marck. W. C. Cashman. formerly of the Fargo nouse. arrived in Bismarck Thursday afternoon with his family, and will be thp resident manager of the company. For a short time the Bismarck house will be in a measure affiliated with the Fargo house, but this will only be un til the company may learn what con dition the territory in this pavt of the state is in. T. J. Sins, manager of the Fargo branch, will have gen eral supervision for awhile although the local business will be managed by Mr. Cashman. The western part of the state has grown so much that the Fargo house is unable to supply the territory here. For that reason It has been looking for a desirable location. The splendid natural advantages of the Capital City as a distribution point turned the tide in favor qf Bismarck, and it is prob ably only a question of a short time before the company will build here, although Mr. Cashman declined to Col. H. R. Bitzing, instructor and judge advocate general, who is here by detailed as United States disburs ing officer as per requirements of the war department, vice Col. Frank P. Allen, on leave. Col. H. R. Bitzing will also make the annual inspection on the date to be assigned by the commander of the First infantry, provided by the militia code, and will forward a detailed report of same to the adjutant general prior to Oct. 1, 1910. Major Richard R. Steedman, retired, U. S. A. military secretary, who will act as assistant chief quartermaster and commissary and as instructor to officers of the command. Captain M. P.

Charles Kaiser will hajidle the territory on the Northern Pacific west of Mandan. H. R. Price will represent the company on the Soo line. The company will have temporary offices and quarters in the wholesale! building of the Stacy Fruit company, and later in the year, after the ofli] cials have had a chance to see how, the territory hero responds to the new headquarters, the chances are good that the city will later on have! another wholesale building within the city limits. +++***++*++++*+++*++r++*r**++rr*r* r++++.
