CHANCE FOR WARMER WEATHER PROMISED COLD BELT EXTENDS OVER EN TTRE COUNTRY ACCORDING TO REPORTS. No Suffering Reported in North Da kota Even Though Temperature is Well Below Zero. once again Old Boreas has swung his chariot out of the north and for a number of days just past has laid siege to the people of the west and northwest and constantly bombarded them with his icy blasts and forced the thermometer to retreat to the lowest degree for many years. At the weather reporting station in this .city the lowest temperature during the past twenty-four hours has been 38 degrees below zero. Re ports from unofficial sources, have given the thermometer at tb peniten tiary the lowest figure for this place that was 43 degrees below zero this morning. Owing to the cold the train serv ice has been such that one planning a trip does not know when starting out whether there is a chance of ar riving at the destination in a reason able time. Broken rails are the chief causes of the slow service and reports enenating from the railroad offices state that until the weather is considerably warmer and all lines have been thoroughly inspected, a schedule will be maintained. The above conditions have not been confined to Bismarck and vicin ity but have extended over a tre mendous Ifrritory including much of the territory in the south and east where such low temperatures have not been known in a quarter of a cen tury. Indications are for moderation and the steadily upward trend of the thermometer. The Associated Press reports given herewith are gathered from a large section of the country. The weather bureau promises ris ing temperature throughout north, central and northwestern states. People living in those districts are looking forward for relief from what in many cases has been the coldest spell in a quarter of a centry. "Slowly rising temperature" fore cast in Iowa, Minnesota, Dakotas, Wisconsin and Montana. "Thermometers throughout the northwest last night registered a.i the way from fifteen to forty degrees below zero and much suffering has been reported by charitable institu tions. The federal bureau today gave no tice of severe cold wave spreading over sotuhern the southern states dur ing the next 36 hours. Conditions in western states are th© worst since the '80s. Disastrous blizzards are killing cattle by hundreds and causing untold hardships among the poorer classes. Train service on all western lines are chaotic and conditions are very bad. Some roads have practically abandoned all service. Record-break ing low temperatures extend through out the upper Mississippi valley and the Misouri valleys. Thermometers at Winona, Minn., and Lacrosse, Wis., registered from 35 to 40 degres below. Other places recorded still colder weather. ENTERTAINED AT WHIST. Mesdames A. W. Lucas and Max Kupitz entertained about 50 ladies at the home of the former yesterday afternoon from 2 to 5 o'clock. They were assisted by Mesdames A. D. An derson and S. W. Derrick. From the first tap of the bell until the last score was made interest in the game was paramount, and when the finals were summed up it was found Mrs. G. M. Kirk had scored highest and consequently carried home the honors of the day. As the happy hours were speeding to their close dainty refreshments were partaken of and the guests soon after left for their various homes. •QNfNMMH Bismarck's Only Exclusive Shoe Store DRIN MAYS WS DISASTE Creates Craving Which Nothing but More Drink Will Satisfy.

There may be successful men who are heavy drinkers, yet they are suc cessful in spite of rather than by rea son of it. The men who can drink and be successful are so a strentgh of character as to make them an unsafe precedent in considering the average man. To the average man habitual indulgence in intoxicants is practically certain to result in dis aster. It breaks down his nerve sys tem. It unfits him for business. He loses caste. He loses money. The habit brings sorrow to his friends and poverty, misery and deprivation to his family. The thing to do is to stop it and stop it now. Every suc cessive indulgence confirms the habit and makes it harder to break. A man finding himself on the down grade, ihowever, is constantly beset with a craving for stimulants which he in time is no longer able to resist, for constant indulgence not only creates that morbid craving but also weak ens the will power so that it is impos sible to resist. He must have help It is such help that the Neal three day-cure for the drink habit extends to him. It takes away the craving— destroys it utterly—leaves in its place a distaste for an an aversion to liquor. It brings about this miraculous change in three days.
