The character of a stranger ia judp
ed by his manners and appearance.
The prosperous personage bears the
rar-inarks of success engraved within
his appearance. This same method of
classifying our fellow beings applies
much more forcibly to cities, localities
and nations. It is universally e*
pressed by the streets, the Inhabitants
and structures of any municipality,
it Well Locateld.
Regent, North Dakota, is one of
those broad-chested smiling western­
ers, who meets you on your side of
half-ways with one of those -welcom­
ing, heart to heart handshakes, and
who proclaims you as one of its cit­
izens the minute your feet greet the
depot platform. It is located upon
the Chicago, Milwaukee and Puget
Sound Railroad midway between New
England and Mott. The former town
being 18 miles northwest of this thriv
ing Hettinger county city, while Mott
is twelve miles east along the Mil­
waukee line. Regent is not yet five
years old. Yet it is an agricultural
city that hi^ developed without the
ufsual boom of a new town, from a sod
cabinet,to a city with men and firms
of. uiiuai^t calibre as its heart.

Meet those men and I can assure you
that you will agree with me in the
statement that the future of this insti­
tution can be nothing but one success
staked upon the shoulders of another,
making a hurricane proot' foundation
for the thousand of other successes
that are bound to come to this pros­
perous Hetting County banking house.

cashier, are responsible for the record
breaking growth of the First State
Hank of Regent. Those men have
modeled out of the rought uncertainty
of a new town an institution that, is
worthy of the pride of a city ten times
as large as Regent. The capital of
this hank is $10,000 while the deposits
mount to the $30,000 mark.
With a capital of $i.0,000 and state,
apt} county deposits the Regent State
Hank is a secured bauking house that
can assure the most conservative per­

rate of interest. Mr. Frank* A. Brown,

tablished in Nov., 1911. shortly after
the Chicago, Milwaukee and Puget

line through Regent. During the 'past
three years Mr. Ekeland has develop­

The services were for an Indian

United States,-the government having
honored him by having his picture
printed on nearly every five-dollar cer
ticate sent out from the treasury dur­
ing the last tew years.
Large Crowd Attends.
Long before-the bour of the services
every pew in the* church was filled
and a large crowd'bad gathered about
the entrances in an uft'ort to gain ad­

licemen were heeded to keep an aisle
open through the crowd in order that
the coffin bearing the body of the
famous chief could be carried into the

The twenty-live or more chiefs who
came to Washington to witness the in­

solemnly belijnd the rose-bedecked
casket as it was carried to the front
of the church. A number of Jhe

fore his death at Providence hospital.

In a brie!" address preceding the fu­

"Hollow Horn Bear belonged to a
race that thirty-four years ago was
considered barbarian. Since that time
these people have embraced the ways
of the white man and have become
civilized to a degree that has never
been equaled in the same space of

the whole world to produce a race of
uncivilized people who could equal

The wife and daughters of Hollow
Horn Bear are believed to be on their
way to Washington, and efforts are
being made by the commissioner oi

It follows:
"Chief Hollow Horn Bear Is gone,
