One thousand persons are camping

The farmers and business-men of
Sheyenne, N. 1)., have the right spirit
when they let the dairy cow do the
boosting for the community. On the
28th of June they opened their new
creamery with a monster picnic.
They had a grand parade headed by
the Indian Cornet Band from Fort
Totten and followed by many of the
tribesmen. In the line were a large
number of "Milk Maids" dressed in
•white and carrying tin pails and mi Ik­
ing stools. Another feature of the
parade were a number of dairy co'.vs
wearing blankets on which was print­
ed "Give me a boost, I'm your friend."
"Hurrah for the Creamery, Sheyen­
ne Booster," "Good-bye lo weeds and
wild oats."
The business houses of the town
were represented by very appropriate
floats, one of which was labeled
"Cream of the Forests" and carried
about 60 school children.
The parade was a mile in length
In which about 2,000 people partici­
pated. The march led to the cream­
ery where speches were delivered by
Mr. Burns of the Better Farming As­
sociation and Professor Martin of the
Agricultural College. After the pro­
gram the Indians gave a number of
war dancen then ice cream and but­
ter milk were served to all present.
The first creamery picnic at Sheynne
was a model for any dairy commun­

Valley City, N. D-, July 2.—The
presence of a hospital nurse at the
Valley City Chautauqua store counter
prevented Irene Personius, 20 years
old, from bleding to death. Miss Per­
sonius was cut when a bottle of pop
exploded. Several large veins and
tendons in her wrist were severed.
The nurse bound the wound.
Ida Sunde, one of the delegates to
the girls' school camp at the Chau­
tauqua, suffered a broken leg, and her
father, Ole Sunde, is thought to have
been internally injured when their au­
tomobile overturned seven miles north
of here.
The Chautauqua was opened for­
mally tonight, when Bishop Quayle of
St. Paul delivered a formal address to

Willision, N. I)., July 2.—This is the
first year liie Willision Irrigation pro­
ject has ben properly utilized or.ap­
preciated by 1 ho water users. Under
the more reasonable terms arranged
with the Interior Department at
Washington the water is now within
the reach of mor people. About
000 acres complied with all the pro­
visions of the law and were ready for
the water when it was turned on June
f. Four of the eight boilers are used
in pumping the water from the Mis­
souri through the canals. On the land
now being irrigated alfalfa is almost
the exclusive crop. Here land is be­
ing prepared and will be ready for
water during the month of July. Al­
ready many farmers are planning Co
become water users next year. The
lack of rain has made the irrigation
project more generally appreciated
than before.
There is more waler being pumped
this year than in any former season 1
and wll.h a smaller force. Outside the
men caring for the boilers and secur­
ing the coal two men run the inside
work at the oflice. The water master,
a ditch rider and his helper control
the distribution of the water and the
operation of the plant is now down
to a most economic and workable
Some of the alfalfa is already be­
ing cut and the valley presents a '.nost
attractive appearance when viewed
from the highways along the hills.
The enthusiasts for the irrigation
project are more confident than ever

of a great alfalfa, stock raising and

Shields, N. D„ July 2—Is the green
worm which is destroying the Rus­
sian thistles in tiiis vicinity a bene­
factor or a menace? That's the ques­
tion that is being discussed in this
locality. On the Afolden farm near
here, which was infested with Rus­
sian thistles the worms were first
seen. They are about an inch and,a
half in length and about the size of
a wheat slraw.
Their favorite diet is Russian this
itle and they are completely destroy-
The professor announces that the
worm is related to the army worm.
It first, attacks Russian thistle, then
lamb's quarters, then ray weed, and
will also eat buckbrush, flax and
wheat. While it prefers thistles to
anything else it will not. go to 3leep
hungry even if it has to eat wheat.
The state entomologist does not
fear the worm will become a pest as
it can easily be destroyed by spray­
ing, and while it confines itself ex­
clusively to Russian thistle it is cer­
tainly helpful to the farmers in the
eradication of that pest.
Ray,.\*. D., July 2.—The second an­
nual grain palace festival of Ray will
he held on Thursday and Friday of
this year. The celebration last year
was a wonderful success in every way
and the supporters this year are ex­
tremely enthusiastic. This year there
will be an exhibition of grains, grass­
es, and vegetables larger than ever
shown in this section of the state.
There will also be an exhibition of
blooded stock, such as horse3, cattle,
pigs, chickens and in fact everything
raised on the farm.
Dickinson, 'N. D„ July 2.—What Is
expected to mean a great deal for
North Dakota and other parts of the
northwest wa3 the shipment of a car­
load of flax from here to Cumber­
land Mills, Me. This was collected
last fall, baled and stored and will
be used by the government for maX

claimed the Immense quantities of

the farmers of the state.

operation on the person of Mrs.

planning on making applic-a
tion for pardon. Many Caval­
ier county people have main­
tained their faith in the con­
victed man all through his trial
and many claim he was con­

Judge W. E. Nuessle, of Bismarck,

change was made because of the fact
that Judge Nuessle had formerly

Nuessle was trying a murder case at
Bowman. The case was where Her­

implicated in the murder of Tom
Corcoran, a sheep herder, at Mar

1911. At the time Corcoran was kill­

Planning and Grading the Floor
For average conditions lay out the
stalls on 3-footv 6-inch centers and -1
(cot 6 inchos in' length from (i-inch
manger wall to drop gutter. The man­
ger is 2 feet 6 inches wide at the top
and 2 feet at the bottom, with one
tace sloping up to the feed-alley lioo'r.
The depth is 7 Inches, measured from
the stanchion setting, and 8 inches
from the alley floor. The food al
lo£. is 4 feet 6 inches wide. The
.irop-gutter has a width of 18 inches.
It is 8 inches deep ganged from the
stall floor, Which is 2 inches higher
than the 8-foot driveway. For es­
tablishing grade lines a carpenter's
spirit level (or a water level) and a
chalk line are very helpful.
To prevent possibility of the floor
settling, remove aM manure before
grading the surface of. the earthen
floor. Carefully tamp back the dirt
around water pipes and the drains
which carry waste water and liquid
manure to the water-tight concrete
manure pit. Do all filling for the
stall floors proper, place a 6-incli
thickness of coarse broken stone or
screened gravel to keep the floor from
direct, contact with the ground. Since
the stall floors are of prime import­
ance, it is well to make them first.
During this operation the unpaved
driveway and alleys can be used as
working space. Then finish, in or­
der named, the feed alleys, the drive­
ways and allev$ can be used as work­
ing space. Then finish, in order nam­
ed, the feed alleys, the driveways', the
mangers and lastly' the gutters.

case was transferred to Bowman
county and set for June. Carberry
was taken from the prison to Bow­
man, and as witnesses testified that at
the time of the murder of Corcoran
he had gone to Glass's place to secure
liquor, he found Glass and Corcoran
fighting on the ground. Carberry in
his testimony says that he was shot
in the hip. Shortly after the case
was concluded Glass was declared
guilty and he was given a sentence of
25 years in state prison. After Glass
had operated as gambler and a blind
pigger at Washburn iand Bismarck
several years ago he drifted out to
Billings county and continued his
career at Mamarth when that town
was first established, and in its pion­
eer days.
