Hunt's Perfect Baking Powder Is Not Made by a Trust Price Moderate EXCITING EXPERIENCE OF A COMMERCIAL MAN HAS SOME TROUBLE I N LOCATING MORTON COUNTY PARTY Indians Direct Him to go Quarter of a Mile and he Then Has to be Car ried Across Stream by a Squaw. The life of a commercial traveler is sometimes a hard one. There are various vicissitudes which must be en countered which oftentimes fix them selves indelibly in the memory of those who must undergo them. It fell to the lot of a local traveler to meet with an experience recently which he will not soon forget. There is a large harvester company which makes its headquarters at Bis marck that employes a large number of men. One of the firms which it has been in the habit of supplying with machinery recently changed hands. The former members of the firm has an account with the company which they desired to be settled. So it sent one of its experienced men, one who answers to the name of "Mac" to the Cannonball country to effect a settle ment. "Mac" journeyed to the Cannon ball. He reached there just as dusk was falling. He inquired of an In dian whom he met where Mrs. So and So might be found. He was told, "A quarter of a mile south." Mac resumed his journey. The shades of night were falling fast, and soon it became so dark he could scarcely see his hand before him. He went a quarter of a mile. Then he hiked on a little farther. Also a few more rods. Finally he saw looming up in the darkness ahead of him a house. He stopped and knocked. An Indian girl opened the door. "Can you tell me where Mrs. So and So lives?" Mac inquired. "Why, she lives across the creek," said the girl. "How can I get over there this hour of the night?" inquired Mac. "You can wade across," said his in former, "Or else you can get some one to carry you across." Mae considered the proposition. He had to reach there that evening so he thought he would risk it. So he de cided that he would ask to be carried across the creek. He inquired whom he could get to carry him across the stream. He found that there was no one home besides the girl and a squaw. Hut the latter was a husky looking individual and he finally de cided that she was able to turn the trick. So he asked the squaw if she would carry him across and after much bargaining she agreed to do so. He paid her a dollar. He also was car ried across.

BISMARCK DAILY TRIBUNE STATE FEDERATION OF WOMEN'S CLUBS MEETS HERE TODAY ly set the date for the field day ex ercises one day earlier, thereby leav ing the band free to attend the dedi cation exercises. The courtesy on the part of the army officers is very much appreciated by the ladies of the federation. Another feature of the annual meet ing will be the lecture at the Meth odist church Wednesday evening by Rev. Charles W. Harris. He has chosen for his subject. "Appreciation of Art." Rev. Harris is a very able speaker, and no one is more thorough ly qualified than he to handle this theme. The lecture on the rest of the federation meetings are absolutely free and all are heartily invited to attend and hear this excellent ad dress. An elaborate musical program has also been arranged for this oc casion. This morning at ten o'clock the board of federation officers will as semble at the home of Mrs. Marshall H. Jewell on upper Fourth street. They* will review the events and achievements of the past year, as well as outline in a general way the work of the present convention.

Fol lowing the invocation which will be delivered by Dr. A. Lincoln Shute, the members of the state federation will be welcomed to the city by General E. A. Williams, president of the board of city commissioners, Mrs. C. w. Harris, representing the four feder ate women's clubs of the city, and [Mrs. C. M.

The remainder of the afternoon will be devoted to at tending to federation business. I This evening the annual reception will be held at the governors resi dence. It will last from eight until ten o'clock. All club ladies, visiting club members and hostesses are in vited to this function which promises to be one of the most pleasing social 'events of the season. The program for the various days will be printed each morning in their 'entirety in the Tribune, as well as a full account of the proceedings of the federation. health laboratory would be started here in November. The usual bunch of bills was al lowed excepting one from Henry Tat ley for rent of the lot next to the Grand Pacific hotel for sixteen months at $10 per month, on which was formerly located the bell tower. This was not allowed for the rea son that when he pucrhased the lot from the city at the auction sale a year ago last March he had told for mer Mayor Smyth and other officials that the bell could stay there until he wanted to use the lot for building purposes and that he did not ask the city to remove the bell tower un til last May and within ten days after his request was filed the tower was removed. The commission discussed the ad visability of purchasing a new out fit for the fire department at once. The chief objection raised te the immediate purchase of a team and wagon was that there was no place to put them. Commissioner Marquett was sure a place could be easily found which would be suitable. He promi ses to bring in a resolution at the next meeting authorizing the adver tising for bids for 1,000 feet of hose, a wagon, a team of horses and other •supplies needed by the department. There was some discussion as to whether it would be cheaper to buy team and wagon or an automobile T)ut probably the horses will be bought. 1 A letter was presented from a St. Paul street sign company offering to erect lights in the poles in return for which they asked to be allowed to place advertising matter on the poles. The letter was referred to the commissioner of street for inves tigation. S. S. Clifford offered to sell to the city his west 110 feet of lots 11 and 12, block 68, original plat, for $3,500, he to retain the buildings thereon. These lots are on Broadway, just west of Sixth street, and it appears that one of the commissioners thought it would be a better location for the fire hall than on Thayer street, across from the court house. The of fer was referred to Commissioner Marquett and Commissioner Patter son. Supt. Davis of the Indian school, sent in a communication accepting the compromise adopted by the com mission a week or so ago regarding the road to the Indian school.
