President Wallace of the American Conservation Society, speaking to the great meeting at Kansas City touched a live wire in the intricate net work of our social and economic systems. He was speaking of waste in agriculture, and of how, through conservation of the land, the old, old soils of Europe are mad* to yield twice, or more than twice, as much as the soil of the big country which is still comparatively virgin. In doing thifl the touched upon the prodigality of "statesmanship" in giving away millions of acres of our best land to railway corporations, resulting in con stant promotions of emigration and immigration which have brought, in their turn, increases in land value out of proportion with increases in their fertility and productiveness. The inevitable result has been a con stant tendency toward higher prices, said the speaker. In this connection Mr. Wallace pointed out that the movement city ward in this country, hastened by advances in science which have opened up many new avenues of employment for young people of both sexes, was also promoted, until lately, by the existence of a cheap food supply, making it possible for large city populations to subsist comfortably on the prod ucts of the farms and at comparatively small cost. He predicted that food prices can never again be what they were a few years ago, arid that prediction is certain to be found verified in the facts. The problem of the cost of living has so many angles that we can never reach its solu tion by surveying it from but one, or even from only several, of them. Higher conservation of the soil can vastly increase food supplies, but it will also increase the value of lands and the cost of investment in tilling them.- It could force prices down measurably, but not to their old levels. And if city populations are to continue growing at the expense of the Tural districts, either wages must be adjusted to a higher scale of ex penses or the expenses of the working classvmust be reduced. Earl Grey has been telling the Canadians that talking about the Mon roe doctrine doesn't alter the fact that, if Canada were imperilled, it would be the British fleet that would save her. If the delusion that we went Canada badly enough to forcibly annex it is as strong in England as in Canada itself, the Dominion should remain a British possession. They are one people in their foolishness. Solemn announcement comes from Washington that the United States will keep out of the controversy between Italy and Turkey. Of course the United States will keep out. so the announcement seems foolish. There are a lot of people who imagine the United States should butt into every fuss. Dr. Wiley says the poor should turn to agriculture, and that big fac tories in cities should be discouraged. Evidently the doctor takes his eye away from the microscope now and then to see things in general perspective. Soo Day was some day for the exposition. Now on to the next. Next week will be full of big days and the big show will close in a burst of enthusiastic display by the traveling men of the state. With the endorsement of the railway presidents and all the agricul tural experts, Superintendent Gilbreath ought to feel vindicated along with the big exposition he framed up for the state. J. Pierpont Morgan complains that the country is at this time with out a safe avenue for the investment of surplus money. This will be shocking news to the dealers in real estate. Up to date the sentiment of all visitors to the Industrial exposition is unanimous in its praise. And strange to say the highest praise comes from visitors from outside the state. Colonel Bryan is devoting himself to the theoretical side of politics. The mathematical side has floored him so many times that he has no further interest in it. More lives have been lost in trying to perfect the aeroplane than in any other enterprise in recent years. The aviators are brave beyond the point of discretion. Edison says he likes America better than he does Europe. America should be content, even while losing its Astors and its Crokers, if it can keep its Edisons. Some extreme agitators are disposed to annihilate all big business and throw the supreme court of the United States in for good measure. A SECRET LIBRARY. Important Paper* That Wara Stared Away by Quean Victoria. Within the walls of Buckingham pal ace and constructed on the "strong room" principle is a room known as the "secret library," and in this are stored documents and private letters which were they sent forth to the iworld would doubtless set the whole universe talking. From the very commencement of her reign Queen Victoria assiduously stored away in nice order all family •ml other important papers, her only assistant in this duty being a secre tary, who •entered ber service within fourteen years of bor accession to the throne and who iptained his place un til her m!i.*»y"s th. though he him- 188* 1 8 7 3 5 0 a year self li»d no access to nine-tenths of the papers which are docketed, the :iTf queen uloue retaining the keys of the safes and cabinets in which her "secret library" was contained. Just before her death her majesty added to the list of ber papers a batch of let tors of the most private and con fiden'iiui kind, addressed by the late priiice consort to his brother, the Duke Ernest of Coburg. and It is a well as certained fact that when possible she acquired every scrap written by her late consort to his private friends. It is said by those who are qualified to surmise that the "secret library" not •nly tells of royal marriages, births and deaths, but that it is virtually tbe private history of Europe during the last half of the nineteenth century.— London Tit-Bits. a^^sa»^##^#^^^^#ayiay^#^ayaa»#^#^#«oayaya»ay, Stories of Curbstone and Corridor There is some satisfaction in the thought that it is not the mean man of the town who gets attention on his wedding day. The most popular people of a community are the ones who come in tor the most severe haz ing. This was demonstrated yester day when the newlyweds of Monango boarded a south Soo train for Bis marck. It had been a strenuous day for the happy couple and the train crew and passengers took up the good work and prosecuted it vigor ously. A traveling man in the lobby of the Grand Pacific had a copy of a hand bill distributed on the train. They were printed on yellow paper and read as follows: MARRIED. WEDDED TODAY. BASHFUL BUT HAPPY.

Yesterday he walked about the streets jingling three sil ver shekels in his pocket, and last night in a local cafe three men came in and took seats at his table. They were in deep conversation when one said: "It seems hard to part with the sparkles, coming as they did as birthday presents from father. Fine old boy, that father of mine pity he had to die," and the orphan fell to musing. Finally in a show of reck lessness he continued: "But what's the use. I cannot pat these diamonds (throwing a ring and a stud before Mr. Mitchell on the table) and I mu3t eat. Of course there isno pawnshop in a town of this size and I will have to pledge these valuables somewhere until I make a raise. Pretty tough, eh?" addressing the intended victim, who had paid no attention to the hard up man. Mitchell gave the fel low a vacant stare, gathered ,up his check, paid the cashier and walked out, saying to himself, "I am too smooth to be taken in by such cattle as theae." Later he learned that the A well-known politican at the Mc Ken-te last night was' discussing the action of the Minot Commercial club in hanging a "knocker" of the town. "It is probably done as an example," said the gentleman, "to teach the other knockers what they may expect. But if surface indications go for any thing the hangman of Minot is going to have a busy season. Minot knock ers are certainly hammer artists when they get started. They seem to have knocked the town out of a normal school, or at least put it out of ex istence for the present." Tomorrow morning Barnes county is coming to the bijr exposition by auto. If the weather will not per mit of an auto trip the Barnes boos- ten will take the train. A Valley! City man has prepared badges to be worn by the visitors and they read: Here's a hunch!.

We've corn in shock Grain and stock. On $100 acre farms. No tombstones in ours. But bouquets of flowers. Hip! Hip! Hurrah, for Barnes. The gentleman who guards the petrified human foot in the Stark county booth has submitted the fol lowing inspired lines: The Industrial Exposition. North Dakota's exposition is now in a position To show the people the resources of the state.

In many parts of Great Britain the superstition still survives that it is folly to save a drowning man, as he will sooner or later do an injury to the rescuer. The superstition comes down from our ancestors, yet traces of it exist among the Sioux and other In dians, who seem to have inherited it from aboriginal sources. The belief is most prevalent in Cornwall and vari ous parts of Scotland. What She Might Catch. She—They say there are germs in kisses. What do you suppose a girl could catch that way?
