FRENCH & WELCH HDW. CO. AROUSE INTEREST IN DRY FARMING METHODS NORTHERN PACIFIC WILL SEND SPECIAL TRAIN TO SPO KANE, WASH. Prominent Farmers and Representa tive Business Men Will be Guests of the Railway on the Trip. The Northern Pacific road is in tending to arouse an interest among the farmers of North Dakota in dry farming, and that method of increas ing the yield of crops known as the dry farming process. In order to do this a special train will be sent to Spokane, Wash. The railroad will in vite as its guests representative far mers and business men from various North Dakota counties. The dry farming process will be investigated and the results shown to North Da kota people, with the idea of getting that method of farming more into use. The practical results of this kind of cultivation have been shown this year in the western part of this state and in certain localities where farmers have undertaken it on a small scale. To get a more general knowledge of dry farming and its increased yield of crops among the farmers is the next step to be taken.

To the Editor: In an interview credited to Major C. W. Buttz printed in the Bismarck Tribune of the 25th, there appears the following: "I believe that the lessons of the past two years Of Burked occupation of the office in Ailing all of the pub lic positions, including that of Unit ed States senator, with democrats, and even the offices in the public in stitutions of the state, go to prove that if by any possible chance he be elected for the third time, he would be given an opportunity to change the remaining few republican trustees of the public institutions so as to put them absolutely under the control of the democrats. There is no reason in the world why the republican vot ers of the state should give the con trol of all of the public institutions to the democrats, by voting for a demo cratic governor for the third time." The gentleman has here compressed into one rambling paragraph more downright misrepresentation than I thought it possible to crowd into such a small space. In connection with the major's con tribution, I ask consideration of the following: 1.

OSLER NOTICES TRIBUNE ARTICLE LETTER RECEIVED SHOWS WORLD WIDE CIRCULATION OF PAPER. Famous Physician Is Interested Infantile Paralysis and Asks Dr. R. Smyth for Information. That the Bismarck Tribune has a world wide circulation is very evident from the fact that Dr. F. R. Smyth, public health officer, has received a letter from Dr. William Osier, regi us professor of medicine at Oxford Uiiiversity, England. The letter was written from Oxford and is dated September 14. During the month of August when the health officer was watching the few cases of infantile paralysis in the county, he ran an article in the Trib une warning the people to exercise all due carefulness and observance of sanitary principles. In the article attention was called to the fact that there were already several cases of the dread disease prevalent in the community. Dr. Osier's communication was as follows: "Dear Smyth: Should you have an active epidemic of infantile paralysis in North Dakota, do let me know. Sincerely yours. Win. OSLER." Not oily does this show that the eminent physician is a reader of the Bismarck Tribune, but it also shows the greatest interest that the famous men in the medical profession all over the world take in any disease that threatens the general public health.

C, which pleases the captain greatly: Washington, D. C. Aug. 7. My Dear Captain Marsh: I iave been spending several con secutive afternoons of my vacation reading "The Conquest of the Mis souri," by Joseph Mills Hanson, in which the incidents of your life and of the opening of the country north and west of Bismarck are brought out with such thrilling interest. I think 1 have never read a book with greater interest or pleasure, and I shall place it in the state historical society as the most precious of the upwards cf two hundred volumns 1 have contributed to the society. What a flood of memories came back to me as I read incident after incident with which I was entirely familiar, and many that had escaped try vigilance as a recorder of the news of those days in the local and Associated Press, for I was the cor respondent on whom every first class publication relied for news up to the time of the Custer massacre, when special correspondents began to come into the country, but seldom left or went into the field via Bismarck without pointers from the Tribune man. You deserve every kind word spok en of you by those mentioned by the author, including Generals Sherman, Sheridan, Miles and scores of other army officers, and I know that their sentiments are echoed even In more intense tones from the hearts of thousands who have learned to love you through your devotion to duty, and treatment of all who come in con tact with you in your work on the frontier where I knew you for so many years. Faithfully yours, C. A. LOUNSBERRY. #_-—»_»»»._#_»- »-M PERSONAL ^#^#^###_»__».'___-»»#-»--- *_»-_»-•--»-'#-»- U. S. Marshal J. F. Shea was up from Fargo Tuesday on a Bhort buBi ness visit. M. D.
