FROM EXCHANGES 3 YEAR OLD GIRL HAS BOTH LEGS SEVERED Velva, N. D., Aug. 10.—Mr. Ballin ger's little 3-year-old daughter met with a very sad accident, which per haps may prove fatal. Her father was cutting grass with a mower asd the little one got in front of the sickle and both Jegs were severed.

D., Aug. 10.—Sheriff Ed Erickson of Pierce county arrived in this city on Sunday evening and left for Rugby again last night, tak ing with him L. W. Dale, who was re cently convicted of murder in the second degree, and who is out under bonds pending an appeal from the re cent decision in his case. Dale's bonds were satisfactory, being endorsed by a bank at Willmar, Minn., but the Pierce county sheriff stated that the proper steps to perfect an appeal had not been taken and that this was the reason for requiring Dale to appear before Judge Burr again. It is under stood that as soon as he a taken the proper legal steps to perfect an appeal of his case he will be again allowed to go at liberty under the terms of his bond. Dale made no objection to taking the trip to Rugby and anticipated no difficulty in satisfying the court of his good faith in the matter of the appeal. The conviction of Dale arose out of a case where Gina Lien died after a criminal operation had been perform ed, it is alleged, at the instance of Dale. Dr. Thor Moeller, the physician who performed the operation, was tried and convicted and on appeal was given a new trial. Dale is hope ful that he may have like success with his appeal. OLD TIME PHYSICIAN OF VALLEY CITY PASSED AWAY Valley City, N. D., Aug. 10.—Letters have been received in the city from Harry De Vaux of Chicago, announc ing the death of his father, Dr. Fran cois De Vaux. Thej doctor passed away at his home in Chicago. No details were given as to the nature of his illness. Dr. De Vaux located in Valley City during the early eighties and prac ticed his profession in this city until a few years ago, when he left and has since been located in Chicago. Dr. De Vaux was a very interesting char acter and many amusing stories are told of his experiences during the time he conducted a vacine station. During the administration of Governor Shortridge he was appointed superin tendent of the North Dakota board of Eealth and immediately upon his ap pointment he raised a flag pole In front of his office and floated old glory from its top every day in the year. Each day as he raised the flag he would remove his hat and make a most courteous bow to the stars and stripes as it fluttered in the breeze.

D., Aug. 10.—Word has been received here of the thrilling experience of Miss Eileen Kurtzpaugh of Evanston, 111., and her younger sis ter while crossing Jim lake in the northern part of Stutsman county, in a rowboat. Miss Kurtzpaugh, who is visiting! relatives, and her younger sister start-1 ed to row across the lake last even ing in a tin boat. The boat had re cently spring a leak and had been repaired by soldering a piece of tinj over the aperture. When almost in the middle of the lake the tin patch fell off and the water entered rapidly. It was impossible for the boat to reach shore, and inasmuch as there was nothing with which to bail out the water, it seemed that the boat would swamp before help could ar rive. Miss Kurtzpaugh called to her sister to take the oars, and with rare presence of mind quickly removed her stockings, stuffed up the hole as best she could and with her oxford slipper kept the boat bailed out while her sister pulled for the nearest shore. When the landing was effected there was less than half an inch of water in the bottom of the boat. VALLEY CITY LOOKS FOR ANOTHER ROAD Valley City, N. D., Aug. 10.—That Valley City is to have a GRAND FORKS COME TO FRONT WITH HARMONY Grand Forks, N. D., Aug. 10.—It was a harmonious gathering that the re publican county central committee held at the court house this afternoon, the organization being perfected in a unanimous fashion without a particle of dissension. The meeting even went so far as to put on record the views of the various candidates for county office, and all expressed themselves willing to support the entire repub lican ticket from top to bottom. All of the officers and members of the state committee expressed them selves favorably, and it was the sense of the meeting that it stand for the election of the entire state republican ticket. The officers of the county central committee were elected unanimously as follows: Chairman—Robert Westacott, Grand Forks. Secretary—A. G. Sorlie, Grand Forks. Treasurer—O. A. Hazen, Larimore. The executive committee fleeted is composed of Joseph Colosky, Manvel, and H. A. Peterson, Thompson. The three members of the state committee from the various districts in the county were elected as follows: Fifth District G. P. Johnson, Northwood. Sixth District—J. D. Bacon, Grand Forks. Seventh District—Anton O.

PhonelUI ASSOCIATED PRESS railroad was demonstrated Monday, when blue prints of the proposed line were filed with County Auditor Nelson. Ac cording to these the new road will cross the county line, and the river on the southeast quarter of section 36 in Oakhill township, and follow the west side of the river to near Daily, following the west side of the river to sections 2 and 1 on township line, when it again crosses to the east side and thence direct north to Valley City. The proposed road is designated on the blue print as the "Dakota South ern." This is the same name as the new road that is proposed to enter Fargo from the north of that city and continues southwesterly from that city into Ransom county. Evidently both these roads are blanches or feeders for some main line—possibly the Mil waukee. GIRL BADLY INJURED DURING A HAILSTORM White Earth, N. D., Aug. 10.—During st0rm south of town Monday evening, occurred a very serious acci dent that very nearly resulted fatally to Miss Elizabeth Broeder. The young lady was driving a hay rake when the, storm broke and the hail, which was. reported the size of hen eggs, fright-1 ened the team, causing them to run away, throwing Miss Broeder in such| a manner that her back was badly injured and a long gash cut to the bone, extending from above the' left eve almost to the back of her head. LANGDON MAN HAS A NARROW ESCAPE Langdon, N. D., Aug. 10.—Robert Work, candidate for county treasurer, had a narrow escape from death while coming to Langdon in his auto. The machine ran over a big rock in the middle of the road. Mrs. Work had her arm fractured and Mr. Work had several ribs broken. Mrs. McLean, an other passenger, had her thumb brok en, and all of the other passengers were badly shaken up. RANSOM COUNTY REPUOS HAVE AN ORGANIZATION Lisbon, N. D„ Aug. 10—The Ran som county republicans had a most harmonious meeting and organized the county central committee. Both fac tions got together and agreed to divide honors so there would be no fight. Charles O. Heckle, a stalwart, was made chairman of the county central committee, and Herman Shirley was selected as a member of the state cen tral committee. He is an insurgent. T. J. Harris is secretary and G. Jacob son treasurer of the county commit tee. The political situation is more encouraging here than for years and the republicans are working together to elect the entire ticket. News of the State The Fargo Commercial club will keep open house on Roosevelt day. Demand for harvest hands is strong in the valley. A former resident of Jamestown has invented an improvement on thresh Tng machinery that looks good. The potato crop through the state is reported poor. Local merchants at Grand Forks are purchasing big stocks and not worry ing about the crop shortage. 1 Auditors through the state are be- ginning to issue hunting permits and 1 game wardens are keeping a close eye on hunters. —Q— I Grand Forks county seems to be pleased at the reduction of a cent an acre in the assessed valuation of farm lands. Regent now has a commercial club for the advancement of local inter I ests. Bloom of the Devils Lake Journal evidently had a good time at the state ptfiss meeting, and he devotes a couple of columns to'Ben Whitehead and Wil liston. I Editor Falkenstein is still unrecon ciled because Burke will not appoint McArthur to the senate, and he wants, to know why a progressive insurgent democrat was turned down and a stal wart democrat like Purcell named, The stockholders of the Farmers' elevators through the state seem to be in clover. The White Earth concern declared a dividend of 48 per cent. 1 Lucky it's not a railroad. The irrigation feature of the Willis ton press meeting calls for enthuslas tic mention by Editor Sam Clark of the Minot Reporter. The Minot Reporter will cut down to four pages during the August dog days, and this means less room for the frizzling of C. A. Johnson by Sam Clark. The Devils Lake Journal says the democrats are always patriptic and proves it by showing how many of them voted against Bryan. Around Stady In Williams county there are splendid fodder corn fields, which help to solve the feed problem. The corn was drilled in close and maks a fine yield of fodder. The various republican county com mittees are Working in harmony, and this promises well for the fall cam paign. The demdefate are on the last lap in the state. It sounds tid'd to Btemattfeers to read in farfous^Gtte'papett *bw*t de- BISMA-iCK DAILY TRIBUNE livering drinking water to various parts of the city. The wheat yields reported from a number of flields make conditions' seem a good deal better in the state than was reported. The fact that C. A. Johnson visited Bismarck and met various republicans seems to worry the Devils Lake Jour nal and the Fargo News, whose chief business is to spread misinformation about the republican candidate for governor. If Bloom of the Devils Lake Jour nal continues as active as in the past and Burke is elected president. Bloom ought to be minister to Dahomey at least. The Devils Lake Journal is con vinced after seeing Williston that Sen ator Hansbrough's irrigation bill was the greatest thing put through con gress in a good many decades. Ben Whitehead will get all swelled up over the nee things the editors of the state are saying about him. The Bottineau County News seems to be satisfied with the county repub lican organization. Interest in the Russell rase is in creasing since Senator Simpson is on the ground again. It is said that Congressman Gronna may not find It possible to make his campaign speeches in Washington as, expected. Business may detain him in the state. HARVEST IN CASS CO. IS PLEASANT SURPRISE Fargo. N. D., Aug. 10.—Alderman Kiefer says he completed the thresh ing of his wheat on his farm near the' agricultural college, Fargo, a quarter. section, and the average per acre will, be better than twelve bushels. It is clean and experts say that it will grade not less than No. 1 northern. The wheat has been stored and in sured and when Mr. Kiefer is ready! to sell he says he will sell." I On the Wheelock & Wheelock farm,' one section, at Comstock, the average yield was sixteen bushels per acre of, as clean, nice plump wheat as was ever harvested. David Askegaard of Sabin, who was in the city last night, says his wheat is turning out fine, nice fat plump berries, which weight sixty-three pounds to the bushel. He would not say what the average per acre was, but he said he is satislied. A feature of the harvest this year, I which has aroused comment, is the very small quantity of twine it has taken to care for the wheat, the straw of which is so unusually short. An experienced thresher said today that not more than half of the twine will be used in the Red river valley this year, as is usually used in some fields less than that. It is also stated that the wheat this year has been handled with much less labor, especially at the threshing machine in fact, some threshers say that the work was never so easily done. Whittier's Parrot. As every one knows, Whittier, the poet, lived in Haverhill, Mass. He was greatly beloved by children, who were frequent visitors, attracted not only by the genial man, but by his favorite pet, a parrot, which had the distinction of being the only one in the town. It pleased the poet that to his little friends he was known far and wide, not as a maker of verses, but as "the man who owned the par rot." RESTING. Quiz-Coin' out of town this summer!

MILITIA BOYS HAVE COMPLETED MANEUVERS AT CAMP BRUCE AND ARE NOW ALL ONTHE WAY HOME Members of National Guard have had Touch of Real Army Life During Past Ten Days MANY IMPROVEMENTS TO BE MA DE IN CAMPING GROUNDS BEFORE By Tribune Staff Corretfondent. Camp Bruce E. McCoy, U. S. Man euver Reservation, Sparta. Wis., Aug. 8.—The First Regiment of the North Dakota National Guard is preparing now for the final windup of the ten days' moneuvers. The tinal consum mation of the joint drill with the reg-j ular army troops occurs this after noon and Tuesday, in the two-day sham battle, in which all of the 5.000 soldiers encamped here will partlci-j pate. The different armies will leave, camp immediately after dinner today! and will probably engage in minor, skirmishes toward evening. Tuesday will occur the combat proper. The boys will march in heavy marching] order and will carry two days' rations] in their haversacks. They will sleep in their shelter tents, and the ensuing two days will be as near an approach to actual field service as it is pos sible to provide in time of peace. The maneuver reservation is well adapted for the battle, as there is no human habitation thereon, and the country lies in its natural state. There are hills and valleys, meadows and plains. Altogether the land furnishes all of the varying physical features that would be encountered in an en emy's country. The past week has been a very strenuous one and the boys of the various national guard organizations are realizing that modern instruction in military subjects is nothing like what it used to be, even a very few years ago. The time when the an nual encampment meant nothing more than a good time and a pleasant sum mer outing is past, and the militia companies are becoming more and more efficient each year. It is the opinion of the regular army officers attached to the North Dakota regi ment that in case a war should hap pen to break out the various compan ies could be assembled in some camp! of instruction similar to the one here at Sparta, and that it could be whip-1 ped into shape within two or three weeks at the most. And this is mak ing allowance for whatever new re-: emits might be enlisted therein. Thfc first week has been a ahrd one, and the boys were only too glad when Sunday came around. Monday was devoted to preparing the camp for the ten days' stay. Tuesday was the first drill day. The morning was spent in company andba ttalion drill and the afternoon to company and battalion extended order drill. The parade ground is very rough and un even and is hard for drill purposes this year, at it is the first season that it has been used. It is the intention of the war de partment to make this a permanent camp for joint maneuvers, and the authorities are even now planning on some means to fix up a clean place for the tents in the sand. It is prob able that the camp sites will be oiled and everything possible done to make the dust as minus a quantity as can be. At present the dust, dirt and sand is fierce, and there is a general com plaint among regulars and miliamen. officers and enlisted men alike. It is the dirtiest place that could be found in the country, .lust five minutes of a breeze sweeping down the company streets will coat all of the tents and sleeping outfits, the cooking quarters and the grub, the rifles and the men that shoot them with a fine coat of dust and sand, and it is absolutely im possible to keep anything clean. But the military authorities will find some means to combat this evil before an other maneuver season. In time it is expected that this will be one of the best camps in the country, but for the present year all of the troops sent here, regulars and national guardsmen alike, are suffering hardships that they had no idea they woul^ be obliged to undergo. The maneuvers have been interest ing, although they have required hard work on the part of the officers and men. The brigade commander. Gen eral Howe, detailed regular army ser geants, one with each guard organ ization, for the purpose of instruction. They were a very capable lot and com pany A was particularly fortunate in securing the services of Sergeant Wooden of the Twenty-eighth United States infantry. He is a clean cut young chap, thoroughly versed in mili tary affairs, and rendered valuable aid to the company and its officers during the drills. Sergeant Chauncey Wade, formerly stationed with the North Dakota regi ment, with headquarters at the ad jutant general's office at Bismarck, but who was promoted to post com missary sergeant at Fort Worden, Wash., a few weeks ago, secured a further delay of ten days before re porting to his new station, and has been with the North Dakota boys at Sparta. He was able to give them much assistance and information and has been a big help during the man euvers. Friday morning the second and third battalions were given wide strips of red cloth for hat abnds and were sent out as the red army. The first bat talion comprised the blue army. Com pany A is a member of the second battalion and was with the red forces. The red army was in bivouac four miles east of camp. The blues were reported to be advancing upon them. Captain Murphy and his company were sent out on patrol duty to locate the IT IS UP TO THE GOVERNMENT STANDARD —COMPANY WILL BE HOME FRIDAY AFTERNOO N NORTH DAKOTA REGIMENT HAS MADE GOOD SHOWING W ITH REGULARS. enemy and to send word back to the commanding officer as soon as its po sition was located. The central patrol discovered the enemy about 10:30 o'clock, and the one patrol of four or five men stood off the entire hostile battalion for over half an hour until the main body came up on the tiring line. The patrol opened fire on the blue army, but scattered out to give the impression that there was a large body of men ahead. The blue com mander fell into the trap and instead of the advance guard protecting the main column and clearing the road of the hostile patrol, the entire battalion was deployed in skirmish line and the one patrol continued peppering the en tire line until the red army came up with reinforcements. Saturday morning the red army was cut down to one battalion, the second, of which company A is a component part. The other two battalions formed the blue army. The red battalion formed the advance guard of an imag inary main column. Their patrols re turned from the front with word that the blue army was approaching, and the problem to be worked out was for the red battalion acting as ad vance guard to hold the ground, and especially the defile between Selfridge Knoll and the r'ver, until 9 o'clock, when the main column' would arrive on the firing line ready to take up the battle proper. The red army de ployed as soon as their scouts report-1 ed that, the enemy had been encoun tered, and according to the umpires!? who were regular army officers, would have shot the blue army to pieces had the battle been a real one. All is excitement In camp this morn ing, as the boys start on the big sham battle this afternoon. The militia regiments from North and South Da kota will participate in the combat, as well as the Twenty-seventh and Twenty-eighth regiments of U. S. in fantry, the Fourth and Fifteenth regi ments of the U. S. cavalry and the Fifth regiment of IT. S. artillery. The two armies will camp out in the hills: over night, and each man must pre-, pare his own grub, which will have to be carried by himself in bis haver sack. Wednesday the regiment will march In review before General Howe, and the boys will be paid and depart for. their home stations. They will all be[ glad to get back home, as this is the first maneuver camp under the pro visions of the Dick law, and it cer tainly has given the militiamen a touch of the real thing, and to some of the boys this has seemed very se vere.
