Telephone Companies Are Slow to Make Reports and Many of Them Incorrect When Sent In. The state board of equalization is still working on the equalization of classes of property listed under per sonal property and have gone quite a ways down the line. The matter of the assessment of telephone companies will not be reached until the latter part of the week on account of the fact that but a few of the companies have reported up to the present time, and many of them that have come have made their reports wrong and the lists have had to be sent back to them. 10.00 18.00 20.00, 20.00 17.001 25.00' 36.00 1.60, 3.30 Cattle, two years old Cattle, three years old and over Cattle, work oxen Cattle, all over three years Mules, one year old Mules, two years old Mules, three years or over Sheep Hogs Sleighs and sle^j jj'oo Automobiles 2CNX00 There were many radical changes made In household furniture, with the increases running from 50 per cent down to 10 per cent, and the decreas es from 20 to 10 per cent.

According to the London Chronicle, a peculiar drink Is to be found on the west coast of Africa: "You take a wineglass and put in it a few drops from every bottle in the bar. Then you put a match to it—the mixture usually contains enough spirit to light —and gulp it down. This fire water possibly explains why so few West African officials live to see their pen sions." A 2 4 SHORT LIBERTY FOR ESCAPED PRISONER J. JEROME IS^CAUGHT AFTER BE ING AT LIBERTY FOR BUT FEW HOURS. Escaped From Guard Fadden Being Taken in From Hay Found Up a Tree. While Field J. Jerome, sent to the penitentiary from Bottineau county in September, 1908, to serve a sentence of three years for burglary in the third degree, made his escape from the officers yesterday afternoon when a party of prisoners were in charge of Guard Fadden, ^ho did not know Just where the man escaped. A hunt was imme diately started for the man and he was captured a few hours later about a half mile east of the old Northern Pacific right-of-way and near the fort. When the man was found he was mak ing himself at home in the branches of a large tree. He was first found by Officer Buck, gatekeeper at the penitentiary. Jerome has a number of tatoo and other marks on his body, which would have made identification easy had he made a better escape, and it would Cattle, one year old 6.001 only have been a matter of time until he was captured.

Gayer, president of the Society For Applied Psychics, of 131 West Sixty-third street, New York, began the other day a fast which he hopes to be able •_o keep up for forty days. At any rate, he is going to try to do without food for three weeks. He hopes to be able to demonstrate the value of fasting not only as a body cleanser, but as a means for improving the condition of the subconscious mind and giving the forces of life some op portunity to gather themselves and gain strength. Several physicians will watch the doctor carefully and make examinations from time to time. Dr. Gayer has made fasting experiments before, but for not longer than two weeks. "During my fast I will sleep out of doors," said the doctor. "This will be no new experiment, however, for I reg ularly sleep in a tent in my back yard winter and summer. Water will be the only sustenance I will take until the fast is over. I expect to lose consider ably in weight, yet it cannot help bui benefit me physically." Blsriot's New Monoplane. M.

BUILT ON DISCIPLINE. •ig Department Stores Are Managed Like an Army. "This Is like an army." the manager explained when I went to blm to as certain by what system he handled the .big department store. "The as sistaut managers are the generals, the department heads the colonels, the floorwalkers majors, and sc on dowu the tine. Only matters which are out of the ordinary routine are brought to the commuiider in chief. "The organization is built on disci pline. Each individual knows what work he has to do. and If be fails the failure reacts directly upon him. Thus each in turn is responsible to the one above him until the responsibility reaches this office. In the final analy sis 1 am resimnsible to the firm. If a girl ties a bundle wrong or there is a dispute with a customer I am directly responsible, although I have probably known nothing of the incident. 1 pass the actual administration of authority and responsibility right down the line until the |ersou who is at fault feels It personally. Doubtless hundreds of things happen in this store every day of which I have no knowledge, and 1 don't need to know about them. So long as the man to whom I have dele gated the authority delegates it in turn to some one who knows how to use it properly there is no reason wby I should interfere. "This is the way it should be. 1 should not consider that we had an ef fective system if it were otherwise. A system must be so perfectly organized and erery man must know and live np to bis responsibilities so sincerely that I could walk out of this office today and not return for six months."—In terview With Manager of New York Store in Bookkeeper.

SHORT TIME LEFT FOR GRAIN EXHIBIT CHANCE TO GET IN ON $500 PRIZE OFFERED BY AGRICULTURAL DEPARTMENT. Care Should be Taken to See that Shipping Instructions are Followed Carefully. The time for getting exhibits into the state grain exhibit expires Thurs day, August 18, and there should be a large number of exhibits received by that time. There is a chance for the farmers of the state to get a share of the $500 in prizes offered by Commis sioner Gilbreath's department. The contest provides for all kinds of grains and grasses, and this year includes native grasses as well. The shipping instructioins should be carefully fol lowed. It is necessary that the sam ple be the full length of the straw and be equal in quantity to half a bundle. One sample has been received at the commissioner's office which was sent in by mail, ana the grain was short and in poor condition when it reached Bismarck.
