A new era of exploration seems to have opened up, and the results impress one with the idea that this is indeed a new continent. A moun tain higher than Mount McKinley has been found in Canada north of the arctic circle, and a lake larger than Superior has been credibly,reported as having been discovered, says an eastern traveler. The conquest of the north goes on. Civilization has pressed far to the northward within the memory of middle aged men. Not long ago the upper part of North Dakota, northern Montana and the panhandle of Idaho sounded to the average ear as the northernmost limit of vegeta tion and comfortable habitation. When the Northern Pacific was built through the country it was looked on as an arctic undertaking. When the Canadian Pacific was run through southern Manitoba, Assiniboia and Alberta, with branches extending upward to Prince Albert in Saskatchewan and to Edmonton in Alberta, it was thought the limit had been reached. Since then a road north of the Canadian Pacific has been put under con struction and one still further north may soon be completed. This is the Hudson bay line, which will start from the Saskatchewan river west of Lake Winnipeg and will strike Hudson bay either at Fort Churchill or Port Nelson, about 55 degrees north. This line is to provide an* outlet for the great grain fields of that region. The plow and the reaper have traveled north until furrows are turned in Athabasca, 700 miles north of Helena, Mont., and vegetables are grown in Alaska. Alaska at the time of its purchase from Russia in 1807 for something over $7,000,000 was derisively called "Seward's ice box," and was popu larly believed to be a region of everlasting winter. It has proved a bo nanza in the matter of fisheries and a treasure house of gold, coal and copper. There are agricultural experiment stations at Fairbanks, on the Tanana, and at Rampart, on the Yukon, within seventy-five miles of the arctic circle. All th£ hardy vegetables are grown there and also grasses, wheat, oats and barley. In some localities vegetables are grown north of the arctic circle, close up to the shores of the Arctic ocean. The prophesy is made that the Tanana and the upper Yukon valleys will be-, come farming countries. The Cook inlet, Susitna river and Kuskkwim river regions are expected to become agricultural districts. Stock raising is progressing on the Alaskan peninsula and islands, and there is a gov ernment experiment station at Kodiak. THE ST. PAUL LAND SHOW. At a meeting recently held at Jamestown it was decided that sec tional exhibits of North Dakota products at land shows and expositions were not as effective as when combined as a whole. The meeting was called to consider the advisability of organizing a central Dakota display for the St. Paul show next December. After discussing the matter no action was taken. There is no doubt but that money may be wasted and the effectiveness of a state exhibit neutralized by these sectional movements. The dissention started with the organization of the Red River valley movement. This was followed by the Devils Lake district organization and then the western North Dakota league, composed of fourteen counties was formed as a matter of s-elf protection. As a result a number of counties in the central part of the state are left out, butt the residents console themselves with the belief that the value of making an exhibit at the St. Paul land show is greatly overestimated and that an effort in other directions will bring better results. The claim is put forward, and not without reason, that the visitors to the St. Paul meet ing will be made up largely of boosters who have lands to sell and do not want to buy. Stutsman county residents decided that the Minnesota state fair offers greater advantages and they will probably defer action until next year'and make an exhibit there. Stutsman county had a good exhibit at the state industrial exposition just closed and will have a much better one next year. This is a matter which has already been agreed upon. Superintendent Gilbreath has already engaged space at the St. Paul land show and will take the state exhibit there. THE CELESTIAL KINGDOM. That China has been for some years honeycombed with discontent has been plainly evident from the repeated insurrections and riots and anti-foreign movements which have occurred in that empire. That a de sire for a republican organization was general, however, was not suspected until the present outbreak in the interior provinces. Now it appeara that a demand for democratic government exists in many parts of China, and that the revolt is the result of a secret organization which has for sev eral years been growing under the direction of an enterprising leader named Sun Yet Sen. The late dispatches indicate that no confidence is felt in the loyalty of the army, even at Peking, for the safety of which grave fears are expressed. The fall of the capital will be a serious ealamity, involving not only the security of the present government but foreign interests as well, and possibly precipitating international inter vention. Already it is reported that Japan is prepared to send troops, into the northeastern provinces to preserve order in case of a breakdown of the Chinese administration. A JAIL SUGGESTION. There is no doubt that the four months' imprisonment inflicted on a New York importer for smuggling will have a much greater moral effect than the fine of $120,000 that was also imposed. In most cases of like nature the fine itself represents only a small portion of the money actually swindled from the government, and the man who is taken in dishonestly reasons out that he can well afford to return a portion of his ill-gotten gains. Even after the payment of a fine he usually stands a winner. The practice of merely fining unscrupulous importers has undoubtedly encour aged smuggling. The only chance they took was in losing a portion of their ill-gotten gains if caught. The probability of a prison sentence is. however, an entirely different matter, and a man will think hard and long before taking a chance on that. There is every reason to believe that the importer who was recently sentenced to four months' confine ment would gladly have paid twice the amount of his fine in order to escape the disgrace of a prison cell. Ons way for owners of European art treasures to assure themselves that tbey will not be taken to America is to let them find their way into J. Pierpont Morgan's London collection. 1001 10i* $ 4 0 0 $ 1 5 a a .»#^^^^#^^^#^^^^#^^^^^^#»#^#»#^^^^^» Stories of Curbstone and Corridor "There are stories without words," remarked a business man this morn ing, "and I never heard anything more eloquent that the tick of an alarm clock. It is Tke this. As I came down town at an early hour this morning the wind blew cold and the dead leaves shifted about the streets. I saw an open window, and heard angry voices. Out in the yard, perhaps twenty feet from the window lay an alarm clock." Editor Schweigert, of the Mercer County Republican, was at the Mc Kenzie last night. He is much elated over the prospects of getting his ready prints by express. But that is not all. He wants to hear the sound of the chu-chu cars and listen to the clang of the bell and the peal of the locomotive whistle. Yesterday two cars of dagoes arrived for the Stanton branch. In this age dagoes are as necessary as rails and ties. It is now almost a certainty that the line will be completed this fall, and the Mercer county people are greatly elat ed. Live ^onle, those Mercer county residents, and a railroad will bring them into the market. Nobody would even suspect it from the color of his hair, nor the way he pronounces his name, but Dan Slat tery is Irish. The matter of import ing Italians for construction work on railways and canals was discussed at the Grand Pacific last night. This work in the early days was all per formed by Irish labor, but now if there is a single Irishman found on the job he is the'boss. The corpora tions were being criticized for bring ing in foreign workmen when Mr. Slat tery took the position that it is neces sary in order to get the work done. The Yankee will not do it and the Irish are all on the police force or in the fire department and it Is neces sary to put the dago on the job. "Autumn is here with its crisp air, its bright skies and its golden tinted leaves, what a wondrous transforma tion the autumn season brings," said Miss Constance Straw, of the agri cultural department at the state house and she was heard to bum: "And now our weary thoughts dwell Upon the annual surprise. The man who comes with coal to sell Is our old iceman in disguise." Joe Clemens is a traveling sales man. The vulgar and untutored re fer to him as a drummer, not that Joe ever beat a drum to beat the band. The gentleman sells groceries for Stone-Ordean-Wells of Bismarck. And he believes in what he sells. Joe claims his corn starch, canned peas and tapioca, is as pure as the little flowers kissed by the dews of heaven. And more, Joe is a poet. Here is what he says of pure food: "What a comfort to the nation Is a pure food ministration On an up-to-date and scientific line, Wben a purchaser is able Just by looking at the label The spurious to distinguish from the fine.

N D., Oct. 18.— Ccach Rodeweld of the State Nor mal is much pleased with the mate rial with which he is making an eleven for his institution. He has 30 men at work dai|y and in addition to being mor-e beefy than last year's team, the mor'ale is much better. The boys work witn splendid spirit and it looks very much as if the local state insti tution would have the best team in its history. The first game of the season will be played next Saturday with the En dcrlin high school. The high is re ported to have a heavy and fast team and it looks much as if the locals with the much shorter period for working out would have to go some. On October 30 the locals play the Congregational college team at James town on the Jamestowli field. Novem ber 6 they play the Wahpeton Science School at Valley City, and on Novem ber 13 the Ellendale Industrial School also on the home campus. On Monday -evening of this week President and Mrs. George A. McFar land gave their annual reception to the normal faculty, and theif wives, a* their home. There were more than 00 gu-ssts present. Piesident George A. McFarland left Monday for Chicago, where he goes to secure a head for the department of,psychology and to secure if possi ble a librarian. Both places have been vacated by resignation since the year cpeneil. Mr'ss Dagny Bergen of Wahpeton, of the class of 1911, secured a posi tion at Wimbledon this weak in the fifth &nd sixth grades. She will also aave charge of the department of physical culture. This is the fourth week of the term and students continue to anroll. The enrollment is almost the same as last year. The marked gain is in the Con servatory of Music and especially in the department of piano, which is this year under the direction of Miss Marie Sloss. Miss Sloss' recital before the Wom en's State Federation of Clubs has received statewide recognition and has given the work of the depart ment an unusual impetus. ADVERTISED LETTER LIST.

Men Who Helped to Make America AN ALTRUISTIC FRENCHMAN. LAFAYSTTE In 1824 Lafayette arrived on a visit to this country as the g"-st of the nation. He laid the corner stone of Bunker Hill monument at that time. Charles Sumner, the great orator, said of him:- BOOK REVIEW Ralph D. Harrison, in his forth com ing volume: "A Nomadic Journey, or, One Thousand miles in a Prairie Schooner," gives an amusing anec dote of his encounter with avHoosier farmer. He says: Before us stretched a beautifully green bit of country, dotted here and there with farm houses and grassy meadows. On either side of the, road, which was quite yellow with fine par ticles of sand, were fields of ripening corn, enclosed by fences of ill-hewn wooden rails. Finding time hanging heavily on our hands, one of us sug gested that we might turn this leisure to account by br^ing some necessary products of the cuisine art. Accord ingly, at the next farmhouse I sum moned all my intrepidity, and opening the gate walked around to the side. No sign of life was visible unless it was the few scraggly ghosts of chick ens which wallowed in the mire be hind the 3trands of dilapidated wire fence in the rear of the yard, but at length, in answer to repeated raps at the rough door. I had the satisfaction of seeing the tip of a ragged curtain in a window nearby raised slightly, and a human eye appeared, as round and unblinking an eyeas it has ever been my fortune to see. It wa3 rather disconcerting, this sharp and prolong ed stare with which I was favored, but I bore it unflinchingly, and even attempted to conceal my knowledge of the owner's presence. At length, with commendable caution, so bloody are the times in which we live, and so truculent was my appearance in those days, the door was opened a little and a tousled head emerged, to be followed by a dirty scrawny neck. Were the eyes not so basilisk, pre cluding all possibility of sleep ever visiting those piercing orbs, I would venture a guess that the owner was fresh from the arms of Morpheus, But it is inconceivable that so illus trious a personage as Morpheus should evar stoo to cuddle in his soothing embrace so altogether wide-awake and suspicious a specimen as this. Wa'al,' came a nasal challenge from nowhere "what is it?" The reception was so totally differ ent from anything I had imagined that my subsequent confusion would have engendered distrust in a more unsus pecting breast than this. Up to now, I had seen nothing but a coarse red face and an emaciated support for it, but there was no suggestion of gender in their appearance. Here my re flective faculties intervened, and the very profusion of the tangled hemp whidh surmounted the forehead an swered the 1 question for itself. It was a woman. "Madam," I began in my most court ly manner, but like a bomb came the interruption. "What d'you want?" "Can I buy a loaf of bread?" I cried, entrapped into plain speech. As I spoke I put my hand into my pocket intending to 'daszle her with the view of a bright coin which should be hers in the event of our striking a bargain. Instantly the door smashed shut, I heard a scampering of feet, and the murder was frustrated. This clever woman had interposed an effectual barrier in the shape of a heavy oak door to the bullets from my hidden pistol. Again the eye appeared at the ragged curtain, and once more the olfactory voice floated out upon the air. "Go away. Ain't got none." So this was the hospitable farmer of whom we had heard so much, and the tale of whose generosity had been ceaselessly pounded into our ears for mouths. I burst out laughing in spite of my chagrin. If theye were all like this a pleasant prospect we had ahead of us. It is not my intention to deride the Indiana farmers, nor to exaggerate their ignorance on certain subjects in the least. I believe that as a class they are honest, prudent, generous and industrious, yet truth compels me to say that we received worse treatment in our own home state than in any of the five across which we journeyed. POSSE SEEKS NEGRO NECHE. N. D., Oct. 18—A negro named Smith is at large in the timber near this city with a deputy sheriff and others engaged lin the search for him. He is wanted for making threats of a serious nature against A. Boui bois, a farmer residing near the city. WON CHAMPIONSHIP CRARY. N. D., Oct. 18—P. H. Mc Gurren, the local druggist, won the heavy weight championship title of North Dakota in the wrestling art by defeating Ole Hauge. McGurren took two straight falls, the first in twentyone minutes and the second in twenty-three minutes and thirty seconds. Both falls were secured with a scissors and half Nel son hold.

Turn the rascals out—the headache, the biliousness, the indigestion, the sick, sour stomach and foul gases turn them out tonight and keep them out with Cascarets. Millions of men and women take a Cascaret now and then and never know the misery caused by a lazy liver, clogged bowels or an upset stomach. Don't put in another day of distress. Let Cascarets cleanse and regulate your stomach remove the sour, undi gested and fermenting food and that misery-making gas take the excess bile from your liver and carry out of the system alLthe decomposed waste matter and poison in the intestines and bowels. Then you will feel great. A Cascaret tonight will surely straighten yo3 out by morning. They work while you sleep. A 10-cent box from any drug store means a clear head and cheerfulness for months. Children love to take Cascarets be cause they taste good—never gripe or sicken. First American Letter Box. A little more than a half century ago the letter box was unknown. The inventor was Joseph William Briggs. nephew of a former governor of Mas sachusetts, who. as bead clerk in the Cleveland postoffice. studied the needs of patrons and after correspondence with Postmaster General Dennison upon the subject took a traiu for Washington, bearing a pasteboard model of the letter box under his arm. The postmaster general saw the mer its of the plan and appointed Mr. Briggs as special agent to establish the letter box and letter carrier sys tem. The first letter box was attached by clamps to a lamppost that stood iu front of a Cleveland drug store, and not a year had passed before fifty-two different cities had adopted the system. —National Magazine.
