YOUR FAMILY BUDGET!
High wag'esfor everybody and high
prices for everything mean a revision
of the family budget.
What is a budget?
Planning how you will spend your
salary—'balancing your' accounts be
forehand, not for the sake of counting
your cliickens before they are hatch
ed, but in order to divide your wages
so that your family will get the most
comfort for the. least money.
You know what your wages for the
next month or the next year will 'be.
You also know what are your neces
sities and luxuries. According to the
budget system, you -divide youiy in
come to cover these needs, and never
rob one to increase the other, nor
spend more than your appropriation.
Few do this, but those who are thus
.forehanded generally prosper.
Nobody can tell exactly what anoth
er's budget ought to be.
One estimate allows 20 per cent for
iirent, 12 p^r cent- for operating, ex*
penses, such as lfeht, hefct,• carfare
and laundry 18 per cent for cloth
ing 15 per cent for incidentals—
.amusements, education, church, lodge,
doctor, dentist, savings and insur
ance and 35 per cent for food
This may be a proper distribution
of a salary, and again it may not. No
law of expenditurei can possibly be
At present high prices, families Wv

FARMER ON ECONOMICS.
Secretary McAdoo, out at Los An
geles trying to get a rest, tries to
cheer us up. Speaking on the high
cost of living, he says:
"There should be no occasion for
alarm, as the prosperity of the coun
try will insure ample funds with
which to purchase necessaries, de
spite the fact that the cost has gone
We put this cheer up to a horny
handed farmer friend, who said:
"Mr. McAdoo talks like a man who
is on a large, reliable salary. Now,
we producer folks are not on salary
or anything else that's certain. When
we have big crops, we get little prices.
When prices are high, we haven't
the big crops. At present, however,
we have fair crops, for which we are
getting fair prices. but we have to
pay 40 to 140 per cent more for every
thing we have to buy, In the end,. we
are no better off than before. Merely,
more money passes through our
hand# just as little of it sticks to
our tjands as ever. I've always
thought, too, that this is about the
case with the factory hand and the
taiff. Low tariff—low wages and low
prices of necessities. High tariff—
high wages and high prices. Simply,
a little more of the money slips
through the workingman's hands un
der high tariff. Of course, there's no
occasion for alarm. With us farmers
the question is, as with everybody
else, how much we will save, how
faithfully we shall deny ourselves lux
uries, while the income increase is
passihg through our hands?"

On Jpnuary^ 5, 1917, there will ap
pear-. "a :nfeW magsiiipe,' named "The
Periscope." It will be edited and pub
lished by D. H. iMcArthur of Fargo,
at that city, and will be devoted' to an
exposition and discussion of the prin
ciples and tenets of Democracy: Its
object will be the propagation of a
better understanding of the princi
ples -of Democracy and will include in
its columns discussions of all the
great public questions by contributor
of national fame who have specializ
ed upon these subjects. There will
be no attempt at sensationalism and
personalities or attacks upon persons
will be barred from its pages. It will
contain lively and interesting reading
matter that will catch the eye of the
man who is attracted by the sparkle
of wit and the twinkle of humor, as
wcill as the solider and more serious
discussions of public questions.
The, name, "Periscope," may have
an bminous or sinister sound to those
who remember the sub-sea disasters
and the horrors of the European
trenches. Yet the instrument itself
has no deadly nature and has become
an^ iiistrument of universal use, aiding
human vision and enlarging its scope,
regardless of the location or situation
of the user, and permitting him to
view scenes and events that, tout for
it, would be hidden from him. Mr.
iMcArthur's Periscope aims to fill this
field in the political world of the
Northwest. Mr. McArthur should be
able to use such an instrument to the
best effect by reason of his standing
as a Democrat in the state, his knowl
edge of political history and its char
acters. His eight years' experience
as a state senator and four years
more as democratic campaign man
ager in the years when Democracy
was successful in North Dakota, has
given him an insight into affairs and
a knowledge of men that equips him
peculiarly for the editing of such a
magazine and he should be able to
purvey to the people of this state
reading matter of a vital interest.
Such a magazine should fill a field
that has been, hitherto, unoccupied
in the Northwest and in a state where
politics are perennial and political
discussion never ccascs, it should
have an instant and gratifying popu

LOSES our IN HIGH
Supreme Bench Holds Minot
Banker Cannot Collect from
There was little satisfaction for
Grant S. Youmans, the Minot banker,
or his attorney, Congressman Jim
Mauahan. of Minneapolis, in a deci
sion handed .down by the supreme
court late Saturday evening, affirming
the decision of the Ward county dis
trict court against Youmans in his
suit for damages aggregating $250,000
against a former North Dakota bank
board and prominent members of the
Minot banking fraternity.
The supreme court in its opinion,
written by Judge Bruce, found that
Youmans had no ease, and that Jim
Manahan, as a Minnesota attorney,
had no right to practice before the.
North Dakota supreme court, "except
as a matter of courtesy." The shot at
Manahan was taken because of his ef
forts to delay action in the Youmans
case and his failure when he court
did grant a hearing on the motion for
delay to appear personally with a
properly prepared brief.

Much has. been..said of-*the notattle
increase of live lock in North Dako
ta during the past few years. Real
evidence! of this gain is found in rec
ord^ of the office ,of Commissioner of
Agriculture and £,abor Flint.
In 1905, a year of heavy immigra
tion, ,509 stock brands- were issued

O he on a or in to
but 191 branda were applied for Then
came a couple of poor wheat years,
and live stock began to pick up. It
reached its pinnacle for North Dako
ta in 1916, with a total of 849 new
brands, to date. In November 82
brands Vere issued, and if December
holds up as well the total will be 930,
as compared with 819 for 1915.
Increased receipts of feeding stock'
are shown by the admission on tu
berculin tests in 1916 or 15,162 head,
as compared with 753 in 1911. In
1916, 13,808 stockers and feeders were
admitted, on inspection, as against
2,964 in 1911.
Buying Breeders Here.
"Until very recently," Bald Commis
sioner Flint today, "no one thought of
coming to North Dakota for pure bred
breeding stock. In 1916, however,
there left the state after being tuber
culin tested, 2,172 pure-bred cattle.
In 1911 the total was but 895."
The dairying interest has kept pace
with live stock. In 1911, North Dako
ta had 83 creameries and 180 cream
stations. In 1916, there are 76 cream
eries and 411 cream stations, indicat
ing a wider diffusion of dairying and
a closer concentration of creameries.
In 1911, North Dakota reported 168,
787 dairy cows, while in 1916 there
are 221,822. In 1911 the total receipts
from dairying were 93,811,214 this
year they are to date $5,277,770.

section two of the North Dakota in
heritance tax law,. the state, in the
opinion of Attorney Genertil Linde,
owes the British heirs of the late Or
mond Peniston of Grand Forks, quite
a large sum of money.-
The Peniston estate was probated in
December. 1913. Half of the entire
estate went to Caroline Loura Trott
and to Leila Florence Trott, and the
other half was divided equally among
Leila S. Starr, Clara Jones, Kate
Jones, Caroline Jones and Bessie
Jones, all descendants of Ormond Pen
iston, and all residing in Bermuda,
with the exception of one, who is a
resident of BriUsh Guiana.
Claimed Heavy Tax
Inasmuch as the. heirs were foreign
ers, the Grand jforfcs county court
claimed and collected a 25 per cent
inheritance tax. The Trott heirs paid
on $2,026.10 apiece, and each of the
other five on $810.44. This was done
voluntarily on the part of the heirs,
who did not until some time later
learn of the provision in America's
treaty with Great Britain which holds
that "citizens or subjects of each of
the contracting parties shall have full
power to dispose of their personal
property within the territory of the
