The Registers of Deeds Associa tion of North Dakota convened in annual session in the cayital city Wednesday afternoon at the court house and there was a large number of the officers present from all parts of the state. The gathering devoted nearly all of its time to the discussion of mat ters of legislation which will be more fully talked over at the meeting this morning. It is expected that a num ber of bills will be prepared for sub mir'-ion to the legislative assembly. One of the principal matters up fc consideration was that of the adjust ment of fees. Prominent among those in attend ance were H. H. Berg of Towner, president of the association, and Adolph Wacker of Washburn who Is secretary and treasurer of the or ganization. Mr. Wacker, it will be remembered, is the young man against whom the fight was directed two years ago when McLean county was divided in an effort to oust him from office. However, he won his case, and to show their apprecation of his good work, the voters re-elected him to office at the recent general elec tion. j, Overshoes cheap. Go see Busch. Making a Locomotive. A young lady once visited the Bald win Locomotive works and then told how a locomotive is made. "You pour," she said, "a lot of sand Into lot of boxes, and you throw old stove lids and things into a furnace, and then you empty the molten stream into a hole in the sand, and everybody yells and swears. Then you pour it out and let it cool nnd pound it, nnd then you put it in a thing that bores holes in it. Then you screw it together nnd paint it nnd put steam in it, and it goes splendidly, and they take it to a drafting room nnd make a blue print of it. But one thing I forgot—they have to make a boiler. One man gets inside nnd one outside, nnd they lxnmd frightfully, and then they tie it to the other things, nnd you ought to see it go!" Napoleon's Peepholes. A curious Napoleonic relic still pre served in St. Helena is a pair of shut ters, each with a peephole. St. Helena was strongly garrisoned in Napoleon's time for divers reasons, and the Brit ish soldiers exercised on Dcndwood plain, close to Longwood. Napoleon liked to look at them, but did not like them to look at him hence those two shutters, one with a hole on level with his eye while standing and the other with a hole adapted to his vision while seated.

And then a palpitating silence reigned for nearly a minute. Found a Rhyme.
