Interest Manifested as to Whether Board Will Be Asked to Rescind Action in Wells Case. The regular semi-annual meeting of the state pardon board will be held at the capitol building in the office of 1he governor tomorrow. There are the usual number of applications before the board—about 50—and it is expect ed the board will be in session for about three days. Friends of those asking for pardons and in some cases their attorneys are already in the city and will address the pardon board in behalf of their clients and friends. There is considerable inter est, being manifested lire as to wheth er the board will be asked to rescind its action of last June and revoke the commutation of sentence in the mat ter of Sherman K. Wells, sent from Sargeant county for murder to serve fifteen years. It is generally under stood that ther will be a delegation here to protest against the freeing of the man and it is possible that the action will be nullified. The pardon board in North Dakota is composed of the governor, the at torney general, the chief justice of the supreme court and two men who are appointed by the governor. The board meets twice a year once in June and once in December. On ac count of the meeting coming at this time Governor Burke bas been un able to attend the convention of the governors which is in session at the present time. EXCELLENT VALUES.

Yosemite Versus Grand Canyon. Yosemite for a home or a camp, the Grand canyon for a spectacle. 1 saw a robin In Yosemite valley. Think how forlorn and out of place a robin would seem In the Grand canyon! What would be do there? There is no turf for him to inspect, and there are no trees for him to perch on. I would aa soon expect to find him amid the pyramids of Egypt or amid the ruins of Karnak. The bluebird was there alto, and the water ouzel haunted the lncid waters. The reader may create for himself a good Image of Yosemite by thinking of a section of seven or eight miles of the Hudson river mid way of its course as emptied of its waters and deepened 3.000 feet or more, having the sides nearly vertical, with snow white waterfalls fluttering against them here and there, the fa mous spires and domes planted along the rim, and the landscape of groves and glades, with its stllL clear, wind ing river, occupying the bottom.—John Burroughs in Century. ing. KNIGHTS OF PLAN BIG ly to the work of the campaign SUPREME K. R. & S., FRED E WHEATON WILL BE IN CAPITAL CITY Under the Orator's Spell. Justice Brewer was once speaking of the oratory of John B. Gough. "I would go home after hearing his elo quence thoroughly elated, but when my father or mother asked me what Gough had said 1 could not tell them for the life of me. I remember once at a Yale commencement along in the fifties, about the time that I was gradu ated there, an incident illustrating the force of personal magnetism. Gough was to deliver an, oration He spoke, of course, on temperance. There was a distinguished audience. On the stage were many of the venerable, notable men in New Haven of that day. A large space was clear about the table, for Gough liked to walk back and forth as he talked. He described bow drunkard had beaten his wife and came to his climax with, 'Any man who would kick a woman ought to be kicked out of tbe uuiverse!' "He emphasized his words with a vigorous thrust of one foot, whereat every persou on the stage, intensely wrought up by tbe orator, likewise kicked outward as did Gough."—Kan sas City Journal. When Tabby Raises Her Battle Cry. Despite the cat's sofiuess. laziness, flufflness and purring amiability, her piercing warcry in the night startles and exasperates us beyond all bearing —not by its loudness, but by a certain vicious, weird, half terrifying, half in furiating note in it that makes us spring to arms with the bootjack or other substitute for the boomerang, as the warwuoop of our tribal enemies did a century or centuries ago, says Dr. Woods Hutchinson in Success Mag azine. One of Mark Twain's wise old fron tiersman had caught this note when he explained to the tenderfoot that an imal speech had rules of composition and grnmmer, just like human speech, and that "the reason a cat riles ye so ain't on account of the noise she makes, but on account of the sickenin' bad grammar she uses." And he was right, for the grammar of scalp lifting and the whole alphabet of battle, mur der and sudden death tingles and screams in the rasping cry. Her Little Composition.

In the year 902, according to old cus tom, all tbe brides for the year at Venice assembled on St. Mary's eve at the cathedral, taking with them their dowries in small chests. There they awaited their bridegrooms, who fol lowed them, and after mass they were married and received the bishop's blessing. In this year the sea rovers of Triest burst in upon the expectant maidens, who were all dressed in white, with hair loosely flowing and interwoven with threads of gold, car ried them off to their barks and hoisted sail. The doge of Venice summoned his men to arms, pursued the rovers, overtook them in a creek still known as the Port of tbe Damsels and brought the brides back in triumph. In mem ory of this event a solemn procession of twelve young women took place yearly, and tbe Marian games were ob served with great splendor until the year 1379, when they were discontin ued in a time of disastrous war How They Fight Fire In Turkey. This is the method of fighting tire in Turkey. In the center of Constanti nople a high watehtower has been erected. When the man in the tower sees a blaze the alarm is sounded and the firemen are called to their jtosts If they have horses they proceed very leisurely to hitch them to the engines or carts and trot to the fire, but in most cases they have no horses, and the men drag the engines through the streets at a walk.

No Protest Against Commutation of Well's Sentencs Was Received and Petition Was Granted. Alter a can fid search through the records of the ck-rk of the state par don board then appears to be no ground lor the charges of certain pa pers that the proceedings in the case of the application for and gianting of coiiimuiuiion of snieiice tor Slier man Wells, who was sent to the pen itentiary during the Minimer of 11)03 to serve a sentence of fifteen years on a charge of murder in the second degree. The proper nut ices were sent nut to the interested parties, the prosecuting attorney and the judge of ttie court in which the conviction was obtained. There is a copy of a let ter to J. S. Itishop. the man who prosecuted the case as states attorney and one to K. K. ('assets, the states attorney at the time the application for pardon was made. There was also a letter sent to Judge Frank P. Allen, the judge of the court in which tho conviction was obtained. The judge before whom the case was tried on a change of venue to Dickey county has since died. Wells had made applica tion at the .lime meeting in 1!»01t for complete pardon and there were no responses obtained to any of the no tices, but nevertheless the board turned down the application. When the matter came up again at the 1910 .lime meeting the same parties were notified and a letter is on file from the former states attorney. J. K. Bish op, recommending that Wells be giv en a pardon while at the second ap plication he only asked for the sen tence to be commuted. There is no record of any protest being made against the granting of the pardon. The record from the warden at the penitentiary shows that Wells' rec ord there has been "clear," this mean ing that during the time he has been in the institution he has not infringed any of the rules and has made a model prisoner. Wells undoubtedly committed a great crime and deserved all the pun ishment he received, but the talk of "polities' mixed up in the matter ap pears to be a dream as the record were kept in his case the same as in any other case and the fact that the prosecuting attorney recommended the pardon is evidence that the ap plication was not entirely unknown in Sargeant county. It is probable that there will be application made a* the meeting of the board to have the action rescinded as it is under stood that a delegation of citizens will wait on the board and protest against Wells being given his liberty before the expiration of his term which with good time allowance will be in 1914.

This I am sure of —that there are far fewer supremely good short stories than there are su premely good long books. It takes more exquisite skill to carve the cameo than the statue. But the strangest thing is that the two excel lences seem to be separate and even antagonistic. Skill in the one by no means insures skill in the other. The great masters of our literature.
