•jflCutiaira Soap
«There is nothing the matter
with my skin, and I thought
Cuticura Soap was only for skin
troubles." True, it is for skin
troubles, but its great mission is
to in troubles. For
more than a generation its deli
cate emollient and prophylactic
properties have rendered it the
standard for this purpose, while
its extreme purity and refreshing
fragrance give to it all the advan
tages of the best of toilet soaps.
It is also invaluable in keeping
the hands soft and white, the hair
live and glossy, and the scalp
free from dandruff and irritation.
While its first cost is a few cents
more than that of ordinary toilet
soaps, it is prepared with such care
and of such materials, that it wears
to a wafer, often outlasting several
cakes of other soap, and making
its use, in practice, most econom
ical. Cuticura Soap is sold by
druggists and dealers everywhere,
but the truth of these claims may
be demonstrated without cost by
sending to "Cuticura," Dept. M,
Boston, for a liberal sample
cake, together with a thirty-two
page book on the skin and hair.

SAN ANTONIO, Texas, April 30.—
Unable to withstand the plea of a
veteran of the Union Army for a con
federate soldier serving a term in the
state penitentiary the Board of Par
don advisers recommended and Gover
nor Colquitt granted an order for the
immediate release of the latter. The
plea of the old soldier, R. Crawford
of Lamar county, who fought in the
federal ranks, for a friend and neigh
bor, who after the war farmed adjoin
ing fields and had been his close com
paion for years, was an incident strik
ing and rare for the pardon board1 and
the simple eloquence and straightfor
ward statement of the old man won
their sympathetic favor.
Cononel Crowford, who is 70 years
of age, said that his friend, now 78
years of age, had been unjustly con
victed three years ago and sentenced
to a Ufa term in the penitentiary. 'He
has been working ever since to ob
tain the pardion and he brought with
him a petition signed by many leading
citizens of 'Lamar county asking exe
cutive plemency. Colonel Crawford
said he had not the least doubt in
the innocence of the aged man whom,
he told the governor, he had/,"fought
on many battlefields from beginning
to the end of the civil war

GRAND FORKS, April 30—The
Grand Forks headquarters of the
North Dakota Better Farming Asso
ciation is more than pleased with the
interest in advanced farming which
is being shown throughout the state.
Information just received indicates
that the very progressive Griggs
County Farmers Club, with headquar

VALLEY CITY, N. D., April 30—
This community was greatly shocked
to learn that Mr. J. F. Walker, an
aged and well known farmer residing
two miles west of the city, had taken
his own life.
Mr. Walker, who for several years
has had charge of the city dump
grounds, went as usual to the grounds
Thursday morning at about 8 or 9
o'clock, accompanied by Mrs. Walker.
Mr. Walker, while at the grounds en
tered the small building used as shel
ter from the weather. On emerging
from the building some time later,
she failed to see Mr. Walker any
where abouts. Becoming alarmed, as
she had noted Mr. Walker had been
acting rather queer of late, she has
tened home and togeher with her son
Frank .commenced a search for him.
He was found lying near the barn,
dead, with a bullet hole through his
head and an old army musket lying
near. Coroner Pray was notified, and
went out to the farm and -viewed the
remains. The case seemed so clear
ly one of suicide that the coroner de
cided that an inquest was unneces
sary. Where the old gentleman se
cured the gun is a mystery. But it
is thought It is one that he had picked
up from the dump refuse. Mr. Walk
er was about 76 years of age and had
been a resident of Barnes county for
about 28 years. Mrs. Walker, his son
Frank, who manages the farm, and a
daughter, Mrs. Helen Russell, deputy
regtsetr. of deeds, of this city, sur
vive him, arrangements for the funer
al hare not yet been completed, but
will be announced later.
V. T. Ryan, the genial Sels shoe
man, is moving his shoo stock from
the Grand Pacific hotel building to
the City National Bank building on
Main street, occupying the storeroom
formerly used by Coonen's Cafe. The
rapidly growing business enjoyed by
Mr. Ryan necessitated securing more
room .while the new location offers
added advantages of more travel, bet
ter windows, and perfectly adapted
room for the displaying of a shoe
stock. Mr. Ryan reports a splendid
trade for the spring months and an
ticipates even better business in the
new Main street location.

GRAND FORKS, April 30—North
Dakota's wheat acreage this year
will not suffer a decline despite the
fact rthat farmers everywhere are)
going into diversified farming on a
greater scale than ever before. The
assertion is made by J. H. Griffin
of Grand Forks, general freight agent
of the Great Northern, who is in re
ceipt of reports from a wide area.
The increased acreage under tillage
is responsible for the fact that wheat
will be able to hold its place.
Farmers in the central and western
sections of the state, many of vhom
have farmed a number of years, and
a portion of whose farms have beep
allowed to go without cultivation
have the means of increasing the
acreage again this year, as they are
clearing up their land and cultivat
ing more each year.
Seeding operations have been
pushed ahead vigorously this year,
and in the eastern section of the
state many farmers have completed
their wheat sowing. The reports are
to the effect that the farmers are
taking a keen interest in the ques
tion of testing the seed' corn, and that
many of them are making such tests.
This was brought about through the
extensive publicity campaign that
was conducted.
Conditions for seeding have been
very good, The ground has not dried
up from the recent rains, and the
soil is in excellent condition for ger
minating the grain. Warm weather
has prevailed several days, and the
farmers are well pleased with the sit
