A banquet will be served at 6:30 to the accompani menit of an orchestra, after which Mr. Gilbreaith an.1 others will make tiaeir talks. Arrangements were made by which thie "Good farming Special" wiill spend a day .here towards the end of June. This special is composed of ten exhiiibit cars and ta'iks on ail sides of good farming wiill He made by ex perts from the Agricul sural college. The matter of the automobile 4how at the fl'ime of the exposition was dis cussed and all were enthusiastic about it and believed lit would be a good drawing card. It Is planned to hold tibe show in the armory for one week of the exposition. There is room tn itibis bundling for 28 or 30 cars. The new 1913 models wiiill be out by this time and this wtill be one of the first shows im the country at wMioh the new .models will' be sihowin. A num ber of letters from outside dealers have been received saying Whey would be glad to Lielp out liin any way they could. If our present prospects ma teriaMize into a good' crop there will be a big auto stale out this way and this slhow will1 be a big drawing card to everyone interested. The .hall wiill be prettily decorated and there wiiM be good miuslic every evening. The progress of the kennel and poultry shows were reported on. and matters were found to be in good shape and in good hands. The poseibMity of arranging tor au tomobile tirade extension trips through tlhe surrounding territory was ddls cussed and it was decided' to put the matter up to the business imen at the general meeting spoken of above. As outlined there would be about four trips made: one to the north along tlhe Soo Wne as far as Garrison or Max, and then dirole around to the east, taking in Turtle Lake, MdClusky. Wimg, etc. Atnotiher to the east as far as Steele or Dawson and coming in from the south by ray of 'Napoleon, Linton, Haze'Jton, etc., «nd then west across the river along the north and 6cutlh branches of tibe Northern' Pa cific to Mott and tSanton. If 12 or 15 automobiles made the trip lit would mean that 60 or 75 of our business men could make the tours and become acquainted with their customer® In their own homes 'and would tend to bring Bismarck liin much closer touch wiifch its' territory. Anotlher plan discussed was1 the snaking of a tour of the state east of ifihe river later in the summer, taking fin 'Mlimot, Devils Lake, Grand (Fortes, .Fargo and other cities, to advertise the exposition. This would be a big ad. for the exposition and if handled night would attract a great deal of attention to both Bismarck and the state show. COMPANY A ATTENTION.

Dated May 27, A. D. 1*12. AUGUST P. AiNDERJSON. Executor. F. H. REGISTER and' SonGEORGE IM. REGISTER, Attorneys for said Executor. That experience teaches, indeed is, in fact, probably the mo*t successful instructor of the human race, finds no more forcible illustration than is to be found in the present condition of agriculture in the state of North Da kota. For years this state has been practically a one-crop commonwealth, and when it is considered that more than seventy per cent of our people are residents of the country districts and directly engaged in the tilling of the soil, the disproportionate depend ence upon the success or failure of this one grain—wheat—in any given season, is still further emphasized. It is a fact that in many of the older settled counties there is land that has been cropped continuously to wheat for thirty consecutive years, with possibly an occasional change to oats or bar ley. The inevitable result has followed. GraJually the yield per acre and qual ity of the grain raised has steadily deteriorated the land has become so foul with weeds and the top soil so exhausted of humus, that only the com paratively higher prices obtained dur ing the past few years, as compared with the rates obtaining during earlier times, have intervened between many agriculturists and absolute ruin. During all these years the persist ent cry of our agricultural investiga tors and teachers has been for rotation of crops and general diversification. Not however until bitter experience had endorsed the verdict of the statis tician and expert was any great heed paid to the writings, lectures and dem onstrations so indefatigably offered. Now, however, a change is to be not ed, and it is a cause for universal con gratulation that at last the awakening has come and a widespread and earnest movement is observable in all quarters for sane methods in husbandry, by means of rotation of crops and a well balanced diversification along other lines of agricultural endeavor. The most noticeable of these new departures is that of dairying. For many years the campaign of education has been in progress. Often the way ,looked dark and the difficulties in superable. The inertia of farmers themselves was by no means the least of the obstacles to be overcome. Suitable cattle were scarce distances were great milk routes hard to es tablish upon a paying basis in many instances capital for the new under taking was hard to secure and prices for cream and its products were too often hardly remunerative. Time and perseverance however will work won ders, and this axiom proved its truth in the present instance. Gradually the propaganda began to meet with re sponse interest was aroused scatter ing creameries were established sires of dairy breed were introduced great er attention to feeding problems was bestowed and fodder craps grown and gathered cream routes became well recognized features of agricultural life, and, in a score of other ways the dawn ing of a new era in husbandry became apparent. Indicative of the new sentiment may be mentioned the fact that during the year 1911 there were sold in North Dakota 10,000 cream separating ma chines. Sales made so far in 1912 in dicate even a greater total for the cur- One of the most interesting events at the state exposition to be held in Bismarck, October 1 to 13, will be the dairy cattle milk and butter con sist to be conducted under the auspices of the state dairy department. This contest will be a new departure for the exposition management and it is heleived that it will prove to be one of the most valuable and instructive features of the big undertaking. Entries are expected from all over the state and visitors will have every opportunity for studying at close range the most distinguished of the aristoc racy of the cattle kind. These will be housed in a building apart from the main buildings of the Exposition, but sufficiently close at hand as to be handily available for visitors. The building to be occupied by the partici pants in this contest will be the barn formerly located on the lots owned by the city of Bismarck and on which the new municipal auditorium is to be erected this summer. When the ques tion of moving this building was tak en up by the city fathers, Commis sioner Gilbreath was quick to perceive the opportunity presented for securing ideal quarters for his dairy contest. BI8MARC* DAILY TRIBUNE PROSPERITY OF THE FARMER WILL HONOR DEPENDS ON SANE HUSBANDRY "Bossie to the Rescue"—Dairying is Coming Rapidly to the Front in State of North Dakota rent season. There are at present 85 creameries operating in North Dakota and 150 cream purchasing stations. The cream purchased by these latter establishments for the most part goes out of the state for manufacture into butter but notwithstanding this com petition, the creameries are holding their own, and making most satisfac tory returns to their thousands of pat rons. The combined purchases of the cream stations and creameries repre sent the cream output of the selling public and together constitute a splen did endorsement of the progress made in this industry during the past few years. Coincident with the healthy interest displayed in the dairy business has come the study of ways and means for furthering its continued growth. Prominent among these may be men tioned the silo, of which there are now 115 in the state. These are fairly well distributed throughout the eastern counties, but are rather scare in the Slope counties and west of the Mis souri river. Farmers in these latter legions, however, are wide awake and it is only a question of time when t!u:s most valuable adjuncts to the dairy farm will be in general use all over North Dakota. With the silo of course comes the regular cultivation of corn for ensilage purposes, and the fact that fanners all over the state are going to the expense of erecting permanent, sub stantial and comparatively costly silos, furnishes another significant proof of the satisfactory growth attained by the corn plant wherever tried. Other indications of the steady trend of farming activity in the direction of dairying are the large number of pure bred sires being generally bought all over the state and the quite general organization of community breeding or ganizations the purchase of pure bred and high grade dairy cows, over 200 having recently been purchased for Dunn and Stark counties the increased acreage sown to fodder plants such as clover, timothy, alfalfa and field peas the increased use and cultivation of root crops for their dairy value the building of hygienic barns for housing of dairy stock, and, back of and dom inating all these encouraging signs, the generally favorable attitude cf our whole (farming population toward the industry, bespeaking as it does for the immediate future a practical apprecia tion of the remarkable suitability and adaptability of our soils and climate for its enlarged growth. Assuredly a bright future is in store for dairying in North Dakota. Every reasonable requirement for its success ful development exists on our broad prairies soil, climate, opportunity and the people to take advantage of it are all present hundreds of farmers in all parts of the state attest by their sleek herds and comfortable bank accounts •»tha entire practicability cf attaining success by way of the cow and. her out put profitable markets eagerly await our surplus production with an avid ity which precludes the possibility of depreciated prices in the future sure ly with all these favorable conditions existent it is no presumption to proph esy a doubled output each year over the preceding one for many years to come. Dairy Cattle at Exposition Negotiations were immediately entered into resulting in an arrangement where by Mr. Gilbreath secured the new site, the county of Burleigh moves the build ing and the city of Bismarck and coun ty conjointly remodel it for its new purposes. The state of North Dako ta is to have the use of it for ex position purposes and during the sum mers it will be used as a market place for Burleigh county farmers. In con nection there will also be a rest house for those who come from a distance with their merchandise altogether a harmonious, equitable and mutually benefiical arrangement, happily con ceived and carried out. Owners of blooded dairy stock are already deeply interested in the com ing contest, and there is every assur ance that the entries wi' be numerous and representative of the best in the state.

The Track of the Earth. If the sun utid earth and the earth's orbit could be seen, then the track of the earth would be a spiral around that of the sun. Go take a broomstick, wind wire around it like thread on a spool, take out the stick and stretch the coil until the space between each turn is, say, one-third of an inch and make a hundred turns of the wire. Then this spiral or coil would repre sent the track of the earth through space during a hundred years. The sun moves toward the star Vega at a speed of twelve miles per second and carries the earth, all the planets and their moons along. But they all move around the sun at the same time and therefore traverse spirals, represented fairly by extended coils of wire.—Ed gar I.ucien Larkin in New York Ameri can We have the coffee, what lis coffee. 1 lb.
