(Official City State and County Newspaper) Foreign Representatives BMAI.T. SPENCER & LEVINGS (Incorporated) Formerly O. Logan Payne Co - CHICAGO NEW YORK BOSTON The Next Step Recent announcement that Armour and company wll add a poultry packing plant to its already extensive oper ations here was one of unusual interest to Bismarck. It means that Missouri Slope chickens, ducks, geese and turkeys will be processed at home in the near fu ture. Employment will be offered to additional workers, and more money placed in circulation as a result. In addition, it means that Bismarck’s prestige as a trading center will be enhanced. Farmers coming here to market poultry will naturally do their trading here and business will receive additional stimulus. But the announcement of the Armour company plans calls to mind another development which should not be long in coming. It is the construction in Bismarck of a meat packing plant. This is the first major city on the line of the Northern Pacific railroad east of the great Montana and western North Dakota range country. Beef cattle by the thou sands pass through here annually and there is no good reason why some of them should not be stopped here and slaughtered at a local packing plant. Freight rates which formerly made this inadvisable have been changed or are changing and Bismarck has the natural facilities as well as the location to make such an enterprise successful. In addition, Bismarck rapidly is becoming the center of a great corn-raising country and corn means hogs. Hogs must be marketed at a packing plant. It should be more economical for both the hog raiser and the packer to have a market near to the source of supply of raw ma terials. Like the poultry plant, a packing plant would bring more business to Bismarck by widening the city’s in fluence and extending its trade territory. That such a plant eventually will be located here is undoubted, faismarck businessmen should encourage the idea. It can come to fruition none too soon. Mutual Helpfulness While much has been heard recently about cooperation in the marketing of farm products, and some persons have seen fit to oppose the idea as proposed by the farm, board and its agencies, there is no denying the fact that the idea has worked out well in many other lines of work. One of the outstanding demonstrations of this fact is the meeting here of the North Dakota League of Munici palities. This organisation numbers in its membership city officials from all parts of the state. Each one is Interested primarily in his home town and wants to see It go forward. If the question ih hand happens to be competition with some other city, there is no quarter asked or given. But curiously enough, Instances where one municipali ty or its people are placed in competition with those of another In a material vfay Me conspicuously few. For the most part, one city official meets the same general run of problems that his brothers meet in other munici palities of like size and character. Bome of the problems are present in the same manner and degree in the small est hamlet as well as in the largest metropolis. And so it is that city officials have found it advantage ous to meet and discuss their problems. A solution which was advantageous In Kenmare, for Instance, might be used to equal advantage in Bismarck. If so, Bismarck’s city commissioners and other officials will like to apply It here. One thing may be done better here thanwlssr where. If so, we should not hide our light under a bushel but should give other cities the benefit of our ideas and experience. .... While we learn from the visitors they may learn from us and the net result should be, over a period of years, a better standard of government in every North Dakota municipality. * • In view of the fact that cities and towns use more of the tax money, generally speaking, than any other polit ltlCrStl subdivisions, with the exception, of school districts, this is an end devoutly to be wished. And so the city of Bismarck hopes that the meeting being held here will be of real benefit to all concerned. That benefit will, in time, be passed on to the taxpayers. The business of successful government is a difficult one. All of us hope that it will be made easier and more efficient in North Dakota by the free exchange of ideas at conventions such as these. People who address college students usually begin by assuring their audience that it is nothing less, collective ly, the light of the world. The hope of the future is mentioned freely, and all hands are told that they Will do great things when they plop out into the world. The other day, however, the Rev. Elmore M. McKee, «»hapi»t<r> of Yale University, southed off for Yale un dergraduates by declaring bluntly that today’s youth has no idealism, clings to outworn conventions and shows no desire to lead its generation “to any but the conven tional wares of Main street’s glittering externalism.” Mr. McKee followed this by advising his hearers to cul tivate the old-fashioned virtue of humility, and begged them to develop at least one thinker who could “show us the vulgarity of our sophistication." All in all, this is strange and refreshing doctrine for college students. Humility and Yale are not often men tioned in one breath, and a reference to the vulgarity of sophistication sounds strange when it comes from that glittering New Haven campus. / One can only wish that the speech might be repeated on every campus In the land, and that the rising generation would think about it A little. The world Is a much more trustful and confiding place than is often realised; and year after year It goes on looking to its young college graduates for some sort of guidance that will be a little bit deanpr and higher than the sort it ordinarily produces for itself. But that sort of guidance proceeds only from high ideals, and higb Ideals, as Mr. McKee point* out, are not popular these days, with youth or with age. •o it is that leadership of tii right sort it lacking. J. ' r ■ ■ v . ... ■ ' . , C V The Idealism of Youth Hands that reach out for bread find themselves clutching stones. Our most honored thinkers, our most exalted writers, wrinkle pessimistic brows, assure us that man’s destiny is low and his nature is evil, and moan dolefully over the inherent cruelty of the cosmos; and youth ac cepts the cue and sets forth, diploma in hand, to get what is gettable while the getting is good. Youth, indeed, is not to blame. It takes its tone from the world around it, and it is hardly youth’s fault if that tone has gone a bit sour in recent years. And the rest of us, being blind, pat youth on the back for conforming, and rejoice that there is no heresy on the campus. What is needed is more talking like Mr. McKee’s. Let youth be reminded that our sophistication is vulgar and our eye for the main chance is jaundiced. Let it be urged to rise above our level and discover, once more, that the soul is something more than an outworn word. If it does we shall begin by being vastly alarmed—but we shall wind up by falling in line and regaining our lost hopes. Where Danger Lurks Nothing more fully illustrates the truth of the slang saying “It may be comedy for someone but it’s tragedy for me” than a report by the national safety council on the strange ways in which people hurt themselves. Some of them are amusing, even to the most sym pathetic, but they nevertheless point a moralfor any one who cares to think about it. Below are listed some of the peculiar methods by which persons were injured dur ing the last year. They show that danger lurks almost everywhere for the unsuspecting, the careless, the quick tempered or the unthinking. The safety council’s report says: A man picked up the baby, the baby picked up a milk bottle and hit the man in the mouth. Result: Front teeth lost. Another sufferer strained himself lifting a horse to an operating table. A quick-tempered gentleman kicked his pig, breaking a foot. A lady put a tack in her mouth while hanging a pic ture. Clapped on the back by a member of the family, she swallowed it. , Two men reported, from different sections of the coun try, that they were injured while being hugged by strong arm girls. A gentleman was dancing with a lady and one of her hairpins entered his ear, piercing the drum. A man and his wife saw the family dog about to steal a roast chicken from the kitchen table. Each of them grabbed for the chicken. The wife forgot she had a carving knife in her hpnd and cut off her husband's finger. A cleanly man received an electric shock while ih the bathtub. He leaped arid fell out the bathroom window. A scofflaw slipped, falling on the sidewalk. His flask broke and two arteries in his leg were severed. A woman was scalded when a too-full hotwater bag exploded. Innumerable persons swallowed false teeth in their sleep.

Now Is the Time (Halliday Promoter) Now is the time to build, to remodel and to modernize, according to advice given by leading contractors and material men. It is possible that the present opportunity afforded by low material costs and high labor efficiency will not recur in several years to come, they say. This statement is substantiated by the heating research bureau of the C. A. Dunham company of Chicago, which has made a recent study of labor and material costs, showing that great savings may be made by taking ad vantage of the present situation. An interesting feature of the bureau’s report is that labor is cooperating effectively in reducing construction costs, not so much by accepting lower wages, but by doing more work in a day. Union bricklayers in Chicago are said to be laying twice as many bricks in a day as formerly, while carpenters and other workers have in creased their efficiency 30 to 40 per cenj;. During the summer and early fall there has been much remodeling, including the replacing of heating plants with differential systems which effect large fuel savings. Economy In operating costs is being sought, as well as in construction itself. By having needed work done now great savings are possible, besides the employment of surplus labor will aid in hastening the return of prosperity. Canoe Trip Interesting (Sioux County Pioneer Arrow) A canoe trip on the Missouri river is a novel and exciting adventure. Last Sunday William Mclnstry and Frank Fiske drove to the Frank Gates plaoe and put the canoe in the river. A visit was made to “Little Germany" on the east side of the river where the Benton Packet company has erected a grain warehouse similar to the one north of Fort Yates. Grain is being hauled by boat from Germany at the rate of 2,000 bushels dally, and the bins fill up as fast as it is taken out. At this time of the year the woods along the river present a beautiful scene as the canoeist floats by. The green of summer is interspersed with the golden and red tints of autumn. As the sun sank in the west a jurple glow flooded the landscape, the hills to the vest became outlines of deep shadow while the eastern heights turned from gold to gray. The two aforesaid voyagers came down the river to Yates landing, while Mrs. McKinstry and Mrs. Friske drove the cars home. At a point two miles above the school on the east side of the river the work of many beavers is apparent by the large trees lying over the bank and stranded in the channel. *A big beaver appeared swimming ahead of the canoe and he dove beneath the surface with a great splash of his large flat tail. The river is cutting into the bend above Fort Yates, huge slices of sandy bank falling with a great commotion. The silent places along the river are as primitive today as they were 100 years ago. Assertions vs. Proof (New York Times) The press will hardly agree with Mrs. McCormick that it is being “throttled" by the four members of the senate committee investigating her campaign expendi tures and activities who have said: “We have not at any time spied on Mrs. Mc- Cormick. We have not tapped her wires. We have not read her correspondence, wither private or official. We did not rifle her files x x x nor have we, or any one of us, or any agent for the committee directed, approved or had knowledge of any such acts." That denial is categorical. To controvert It indis putable evidence is required—some form of legal proof that the committee statement is untruthful and that Mrs. McCormick’s complaints have foundation. The senators have properly notified publishers that libel laws operate against any who print unsupported charges that the. committee or its agents have been guUty of criminal acts. Newspapers with a - sense of fair play will have no quarrel with that. But whenever Mrs. McCormick can bring to any courageous newspapei real proof to sustain the assertions she has been making, she will find that the press has not been “throttled" by Sen ators Nye, Dale, Wagner and Dill. Instead of being “throttled," the American press would be relieved if this din of charge and denial between Mrs. McCormick and the senate committee should die away. It may be that for a time it was good politics for her to tilt against the committee. At the outset Senator Nye undoubtedly showed feeling against Mrs. McCormick. For a time she may have seemed a regu lar Republican set upon, despite her sex, by an insurgent one. But Senator Dale of Vermont is no insurgent, and he Joined in the statement. The performance has gone on so long, with so little evidence to sustain the protest of Mrs. McCormick, that it must be the bore to Illinois voters which it undoubtedly has become to the rest of the country. k ■ .. . v ....

NOW GO ON WITH THE STORY CHAPTER XXXIV (&TY7ELL, I'll tell you, Rorlmtr,” ** Mir. Johnson said, “It might be difficult to give that part to Miss Winter, even If she did qualify. In the first place, there are several nice girls around here who will probably want it." He smiled. “Keeping peace In the family is one of our most dif ficult Jobs st times.' Isn’t that right. Phillips?" The scenario chief grinned. “I’ll say.” “And it will b« up to the director to decide, anyway,'’ Johnson went on. “There's no question about Lester Moore, of course; he’a the logical choice tor your gangster. But there are half a dosen girls at least, who might* do for Jenny. So, you see . . ." He smiled. Rorimer, of course, could under stand that casting was not such a simple matter. Rorimer nodded. He said he hoped the other would not think him to foolish, or presumptive, as to try to tell him what to do. “Es pecially after you've been so kind to me. Rut I thought that it we all screed on Mooro—as I had hoped would happen— you might think a suggestion was in order. When I was working on that treat ment there, I had Anne Winter ip mind as well as Lester Moore."' He smiled apologetically. “You see, I know what Anne Winter can do, and 1 don't believe you do." That, he admitted to himself, was not true; he didn't know what A Birdman in Hand Is Worth Two in a Crash! BBGIN — 1 TODAY eral, turned traitor and joined the British. It was at this time that the British Major Ferguson with 1,100 men to cut off a body of patriots then retreating from Georgia to the high lands of North Carolina. Ferguson penetrated too far into the mountains and was met by a swarm of back woodsmen. In the ensuing battle of Kings Mountain Ferguson was killed and those of his men who were not killed or wounded were taken prisoners. This victory proved to be the turning point of the war in the south. A new army was soon raised for the south and placed under the command of Nathaniel Greene. * Quotations “The Act does make the possession and transportation of intoxicating liquor a crime, and in that respect makes no distinction between those who sell and those who buy.”—Assist- Anne was capable of; he only be lieved he did.

I’ll tell you, now; I’ll suggest to the director that Miss Winter be given a test, hut I won’t go beyond that. We don’t believe in interference. It’ll be Garry Sloan, I guess. If Sloan agrees—” • • • r would be Sloan, Dan thought, and the rest of the other’s words were lost on him. He thought It strange then that It had not oc curred to him before —the possl* billty of Garry Sloan’s being chosen; but tbe idea had never entered his head. • • MR. JOHNSON let the matter rest there; he began to talk of other things. Might as well get down to brass tacks. Would Rori* mer be ready to start at once on the scenario? “First thing tomorrow morning,” Dan said. “That’s line.” He rose and held out his hand, laid the other hand on Rorlmer’s shoulder v as he walked with him to the door. “Just to tip you off,” Phillips said in a low voice as they walked , dwon the hall, “when the boss says he may offer you a contract, that , means he will. Johnson’s pretty cautious, that way, but his word’s better than a- gold bond. And,” he added* 'Til be darned glad to have you with us." He asked then If Dan would like to be shown around the lot “I'll be tied up myself, but we can get hold of someone In the publicity department to take you around. Might as well look the place ove* now that you’re going to be work ing here." So Rorimer was taken in tow by an agreeable young man from the publicity department The tour was a short one, though, because only one stage was busy at the tilde; and when they returned to the offices Dan asked him if he knew whether Miss Winter was around. After some inquiries his guide learned that she had left for the day. , Shortly afterward Dan departed, sad he drove at once to the bun*, galow, where he found Anne and Mona in aprons, preparing dinner. Anne said at oncq, “Dan, you’ve ’ brought good news! I can see it in your face.” t And he admitted that that was ! true. “It went over, Anne; Grand > United bought it.” i “Oh, that’s wonderful, Dan!

The public school system is un doubtedly improving in its effective ness in teaching children to be more proficient in making a living. Manual training is available in every well or ganised school and students are care fully trained to be more efficient in business and making a living, but I do not believe the children learn enough about how to live. This sub ject seems so important that I believe that at least one-third of the hours of each day should be spent in study ing such subjects as physiology and the science of food, the practice of corrective physical culture, and sex instruction. In only a small per centage of schools is the study of physiology made compulsory, and the facts then given are so primary as not to be taken seriously. Many pages are given over to the evils of tobacco and alcohol, but almost no informa tion is given on the important 6tudy of food science. It is amasing, how much the young folks know about literature, and how little they know about the function of their own bodies. Often, they pick up the most Important facts of life in a distorted way, from coarse com panions. The study of physiology is tar more interesting and important than most of the stories of classical literature which are studied. I have .never yet talked to parents who do not believe that what I am saying is true and still there is very little constructive effort made to improve the present system of education. The responsi bility for putting such studies in the public schools must be laid upon the shoulders of the parents, for they are the taxpayers who employ the teach ers and select the boards of educa tion. Your duty does not end when you send your child to the public schools, but if your health consciousness has been sufficiently aroused you will re alize it is not only your duty but your God-given opportunity to see that your child is given the very best chance to learn the habits which make for healthful living. Children’s diets do not differ ma terially from those of adults, and you can impress your advice by the price less example of practicing good diet habits, yourself. If something is not through them at home here.” He brought a pencil out of his pocket and asked if there was any paper handy. “There’s a couple of scenes I’d like to give you a few notes on. Remember the place, Anne, where Michael is framed and the cops take him away, and Jenny learns that he thinks she Was the one who framed him?" She nodded. “Well, there’s a real spot tor Jenny there. It’s a good scene. I’U jot down the lines for you.” •• • • ' LTE began to write on the pad -*- 1 that Mona brought him, and Anne beside him leaned close to him and watched the rapidly mov ing pencil, mouthing the words as he wrote them down. “And here’s another pretty good one, Anne. You might as well be going over this one too. Remember it?” She bobbed her head eagerly, and her eyes shone. “I think I can remember everything In the play, Dan. Oh. it’s just a wonder! Mona, tell him how much I’ve talked about it to you. I’d give anything to play that part” -“l’m really beginning to think she would, Dan," Mona said, laugh ing. She got up then and slipped out of the room, and from tbe kitchen she called back to Anne that she was going ahead with the dinner. “But don’t worry about me spoil ing anything. I’m just slicing the tomatoes." Anne smiled and called out some thing in reply. “Poor Mona and her cooking!” she exclaimed softly, and bent once more over Dan’s writ ing. Rorimer leaned back and tapped the end of the pencil against hie chin. “How does Mona feel now —better?" “Yes, a great deal.” “Heard from Bva?" “No." Mona called again to ask Dan if he would stay for dinner. She came to the doorway to repbkt the invitation, and tbe sun. streaming through the green-curtained win- dow behind her. made flame of her red hair. “Steak,. Dan—and salad that little Mona is fixing all by herself. Bet-' ter stay.” And Anne urged him. “Yes, do.” “For the sake of the salad, then, yes,” he said, and Anne left his side and went to the kitchen. He continued for a few more minutes to write, and when he put the pad aside he joined the girls in the kitchen, crying loudly that he wanted to be put to work. “And don’t think I can’t cook a steak. Say, this is going, to be a regular party. It’s Rorlmer’s night to howl, girls. After dinner, Miss Winter will entertain with a ren dition of a couple of swell scenes from a swell play, and then we’re kll going to go places and do things. Right?” “Right," said Mona.

No teaching you can give your child about the bad effect: of certain foods will be worth anything if you continue to show such a bad example. QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Stomach Ulcer Question: M. A. asks: “Will you kindly explain the most positive symptoms of stomach ulceration? Is there any dieting or medical cure for ulcer in the stomach, without surgical operation?” Answer: If the stomach ulcer has really developed, there will be intense pain in the upper gastric region which is located between the ribs and the navel. This pain is usually ac companied by vomiting of blood and even pus, and in this condition a pa tient is in danger of having the ulcer perforate through the walls of the stomach or intestines. An operation is sometimes advisable in order to save the patient’s life, but if taken in time when the first symptoms de velop, a short fast followed by the milk diet will so reduce the irritation that the ulcer can heal by itself with out surgical interference. Diet in Rheumatism Question: J. D. E. asks: “Are fresh figs and peanut butter good foods for one who has rheumatism?” Answer: Figs, either fresh or dried, may be freely used by one suffering from this trouble, and while no espe cially harmful results will come from the use of thoroughly roasted peanuts or the butter made from roasted pea nuts, one troubled with rheumatism does better on a diet regimen such as my Cleansing Diet Course, which does not include nuts. ' Turkish Baths Question: Mrs. H. asks: “What is your opinion of Turkish baths for reducing? I find that I can always lose two or three pounds with each bath. Do you consider them harm ful?” Answer: The Turkish bath causes a reduction by an elimination of water from the body, but one usually regains the weight again as soon as food or liquid is taken. They are use ful in some disorders, however, be cause a large quantity of tc::lc ma terial is usually discharged in the perspiration. i .
