Thursday, August 11, 1910.
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. She was
hurriedly taken to the Johns hospital
at Velva, and everything is being done
by skillful surgeons to save her life.
Grand Forks, N. 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
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.
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.
"I tried all kinds of blood remedies
which failed to do me any good, bnt I

Jamestown, N. 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.

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

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

blue prints of the proposed line were

several ribs broken. Mrs. McLean, an
other passenger, had her thumb brok

were badly shaken up.
Lisbon, N. D„ Aug. 10—The Ran

harmonious meeting and organized the
county central committee. Both fac

honors so there would be no fight.
Charles O. Heckle, a stalwart, was
made chairman of the county central

selected as a member of the state cen

Members of National Guard have had Touch of
Real Army Life During Past Ten Days
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

plains. Altogether the land furnishes
all of the varying physical features
that would be encountered in an en
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

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.

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

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
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

who were regular army officers, would
have shot the blue army to pieces had
the battle been a real one.
