Government, State or Private
Oontriubtions Not to Affect
Kan—No Deductions to be
Made by Studebaker from Full
Wage. _____
The policy of the Studebaker cor
poratiqn to place all employes enlist
ed (or service in Mexico on full pay
until jec. 31, will not be altered by
any government, state or private sub­
scription plans for the relief of sol­
diers' families, according to announce­
ment made by J. G. Heaslet, vice«
president of the Studebaker corpora­
tion, in charge of engineering and
"Since we sent the personal letters
to all our men who have enlisted, ad­
vising them that we had arranged to
place them on full pay, I noticed that
some companies have decided to de­
duct any amount the families may re­
ceive from government, state and pri­
vate sources," said Mr. Heaslet.
"Wie will go through with our orig­
inal plan. In other words, regardless
of what the families of any of our
employes receive from other sources,
we shall make no deductions from
the full pay which we have promised
our men.
"As a matter of fact, I do not ex­
pect a single family dependent upon
our employes who have enlisted will
need outside assistance-"
Following is the letter distributed
by the Studebaker corporation among
its employes who as members of the
National guard were called to duty:
"As an expression of its apprecia­
tion of the patriotism which has
prompted you to enlist in the service
of your country, the Studebaker cor­
poration has arranged to place you on
full pay until December 31, 1916.
"The Equitable Life Assurance so­
ciety has agreed to continue in force
the life insurance policy which you
now hold under our insurance plan.
"Kindly advise from time to time
where you desire to have the amount
of your ipay sent, and if to any one
other than yourself, kindly sign at­
tached order giving full name and ad­
dress, which will be our authority to
deliver such pay."
The order affects 42 men at the De­
troit factories of the Studebaker cor­
poration. Similar orders were sent
to employes.at the South Bend, Ind.,

"Minding the baby" for some busy

In spite of all these trials, courtesy

El Paso, Texas, July 11.—The Mex­

Mandan, July 11.—Bouck White,
pastor of the Church of the Social
Revolution, was the chief attraction
at the Mandan Chautauqua.
Sarah Mildred Wilmer, without
doubt the mos* talented reader on
the Chautauqua platform, comes to­
morrow and will appear at both after­
noon and evening entertainments.
Miss Wilmer who was here two years
ago, more than delighted the audi­
ences and the requests to have her
come to Mandan again have been re­
peated over and over again. Her
rendition of the "Sign of the Cross"
was without question the most touch­
ing, the most dramatic reading ver
heard in this city.
The Deitrics, entertainers, like the
Weeks company, have a style and
show all their own. In addition they
give tomorrow evening an entertain­

Mandan be one the grounds, but it is
expected that hundreds from out of
the city will be here.

Efforts to Recover Body of John
George Unsuccessful
Fargo, iN. D., July 11.—Slowly ris­
ing tonight, the flood waters of the
Red river passed the 27.6 foot level
to three feet under the mark attained
in the early spring flood, and with
continued rise, damage was extended
over a wider area.
The water this afternoon flooded
the basement of St. John's Sisters
Home, causing heavy damage. Fire
engines have worked continuously to
prevent flooding of two buildings, but
they were unable to overcome the in­
flux of water.
Reports from points on the various
tributaries that are sending a tre­
mendous flow of water into the Red
river indicate that they are without
exception going down, and receding
water here is likely, very early.
Searchers were unsuccessful today
in grappling for the body of John
George, drowned while swimming in
the iFargo college athletic stadium,
now eight feet under water.
To prevent further fatalities the po­
lice established regulations over bath­
ing in flooded area.

to Be
and Farm Finance
Fargo, N. D., July »11.—The board
of regents of North Dakota has auth­
orized investigations of markets and
farm finance at the 'North Dakota ex­
periment station, in co-operation with
the United States department of agri­
culture. The investigations will be
carried on by Dr. J. E- Boyle, former­
ly of the University of North Dakota,
under the direction of Thomas Coop­
er, director of the experiment station.
Studies will be made of legislation
which has provided the best basis for
co-operation and the forms of co-oper­
ative organization wheh have most ef

has become a great crop. Pepper­

One day a salesman put up his
stand at Trenton opposite the taber­
nacle in which Billy Sunday was
holding his meetings. He boldly pro­
claimed that he, instead of Sunday,
was the great and holy dispenser of
life savers. The Evangelist came out
to see what was going on, r.nd tasted
of the mint, and then he became a
rogufar devotee of the sweet.* In a
few days everyone in Trenton was

Attention will also be given to the
