The press agent of Attorney Gen eral Langer in a Boswellian article confides that during his first year in college "Cyclone Bill" made the rec ord of "being out only five nights in one year." The degree of restraint can only be appreciated when it is known that "Cyclone Bill" attended Columbia, where the Great White Way constant ly allures. But here is the gem of the eulogy: "The clock was striking the hou: of 10:45, when shouts, the pounding of doors, the speeding of automobiles and the fact that crowds began pour ing out on the streets, made it evi dent that something of more than usual intreset was in progress that night, May 8, in the city of Minot. 'What's the matter? Wihat's go ing on?' asked bystanders. 'Bill Langer's coming to town. Bill Langer's here,' was the answer, and the 'Magic City' fairly shook un der the answer. The underworld of that city had long feared the coming to town of "Cyclone Bill.' Why these words? Why try to paint the lily? In future when hard put for super latives to describe "Cyclone Bill" we commend this verse to the Non-parti san Daily: "See what a grace is seated on this brow yperiop's curls, the front of Jove 1 An eye like Mars, to threaten and command A combination and a form, indeed, Where every god did seem to set his seal To give the world assurance of a man." Our nurses and doctors are in Lon doi$#^f ehrtpeers "have landed their vanguard there, our navy is after the U-boats. DIRECT ACTION. Jackson Carlisle found his apart ment too cold for comfort. Whereupon he got hot and, going downstairs, shot his landlord in the shoulder. This happened in Chicago, but the case will be watched with eager in terest by a large and steadily in creasing army of flat-dwellers every where. In the between seasons the matter of apartment bouse heat has become a serious problem. Radiator rapping has proved futile except as a method of relieving the feelings of the rap per. Remonstrances with janitors are of little avail when that individual' mind has turned from firing to fl screens. Shooting the landlord is an ex treme application of the direct ac tiontion theory and, of course, we are properly shocked. Just the same we hope the pep pery Mr. Carlisle will be tried before a judge who is himself a flat-dweller. Germany's food supply ing shorter. Let's hasten when they bite the dust. LBuy becom- the time a ibond for your June bride That'll be at least one pleasant bond between BUY LIBERTY BONDS. Picture the immigrant. He has landed at Ellis Island and is won dering whether the bars will be let down for him. He has staked his all upon the move from the Old World to the New. He has left behind him king worship, rank worship, castle worship. Back there a man remains very largely in the station in life in which he was born. Back there he has to serve in the army, whether it is war time or peace time. Back there little opportunity presented itself to him and less to his children. Suppose now Uncle Sam said to him: "IIow much will you give to be admitted to my country?" Don't you know that he would put up al most every cent he had on earth and would be willing to pledge a part his earnings, no matter what sacri lice it entailed? Because, once within the gates, he would be in the land of opportuni ties. Nothing would be .'barred him that his energies and his talentr could attain. Here there is no king and no rank and no caste. Every man is what he makes of himself. He may be a workman drawing a good union wage, or a shopkeeper, or a great merchant He may become mayor of his city, or congressman of his district, or gover nor of his state. Even the pre dency is open to his sons born in this country. And be very sure of it, the immigrant appreciates to the full all these chances in life. But do you appreciate them, you who were born in this country and who take all these blessings for granted? Do you appreciate them, you who were naturalized so long ago that your perceptions of things have become dulled? If not, it is time to wake up. AJ that America is to us, all that it cat be to our children and to future gen erations, is at stake. German autocracy is still a menace to the world. German militarism it still uncrushed. It is up to all o' us either to enlist or invest. Thosp of us who can't serve in the army should help" support the army /b work and by money. Buy Liberty Bonds. Pay what you thins it is worth to be an American citizen. CAPITOL NOTES PLAY DAY.— 'Michigan, N. D., May 29.—IMore than 600 school children participated in the annual Nelson county play day here.

TUESDAY, MAY 20, 191?. Cole Brothers Circus Pleases Animal Acts Win High Favor every moment it seems that the train er is taking his life in his liandB, try ing to subdue the savage (beasts. Miss Muriel Oroft, the little French girl, who goes into the steel arena with a group of leopards and pan thers, has an act that is really won derful. The three riding lions is a new act and very dangerous, for it places the rider behind the animal, a thing that is never done in handling wild ani mals. "Buck," the lion ballonist, is also a new act. He swings back and forth in a suspended balloon. There was fun in plenty to relieve the thrills, and the wild animal acts. Twenty clowns forming the clown band, under the leadership of Clown Rue Enos, marched on and on to screeching music. The Three Kobers Miss Irene the girl with a voice louder than the band Gardner, the elephant traihrir, is true to his name, a happy &d-lucky chap, who has trained the troupe of elephants so that they work faster than any other troupe in ex istence. Charles Gay, the lion trainer, with his |50,00( group of black maned beasts of the jungle, presents a real sensational act.

MOT PRfPARIHG FOR 'S WAR, SAYS Mew vj.- Oscar J. Seiler of Jamestown States Board Is Preparing for 1918 Crop That little more can be done to in crease acreage this year, but that much may and shall be done to insure bigger crops next year was the opin ion expressed today by Attorney J. Seiler of Jamestown, secretary of the North Dakota efficiency commission. "We are not preparing simply for one year's war," said Mr. Seiler. "We anticipate that the need will be great er a year hence than it is now. The efficiency commission during the next twelve months hopes to work out plans for a great crop in 1918- What we need most is more farmers- I believe the* farmers we now have are this year doing all that is humanly possible. We must have more farm ers, and the efficiency commission must find a way to bring them into North Dakota." To Rotate Labor R- J. Leth, field agent under W- J Spillman, chief of the office of farm management in the United States de partment of agriculture, who is here for the joint meeting of the effciency commission and national defense coun cil today, advises that farm labor as it finishes with the harvest in southern states will be rotated to the north, in an effort to supply the needs of every state for skilled help as the harvest season advances.
