Mr
MANY HOMESEEKERS.
Imi Office At Mlnot Thronged Daily
—Good Lands Decrease.
There are increasing evidences that
real eBtate investments in Ward coun
ty are of increasing value. There are
reasons for this that will continue
and grow more potent with time. It
9aa dawned upon the intelligence of
tile American people that the abund
ance of our surplus lands is rapidly
dwindling. It is getting to be hard
work for our land locators to And
good claims for the homeseekers who
daily throng the United States land
office at this point. The income of
the Ward county farmer is practically
assured and the demands upon his
products are bound to increase year
toy year. The means of communica
tion are greatly improved, new and
paying crops are being raised. The
Ward county farmer is now in touch
with the world and (he outlook for
lUm was never brighter.
.Jury Discharged.
Judge Goss discharged the jury at
the conclusion of the Morrison-Lee
damage case. The present term of
the district court has been the longest
in the history of the county, court hav
ing been in session since the 20th day
of last November.
The new viaduct over the Great
Northern tracks wil be ready for use
la the near future.
DIFFERENT STANDARDS.
Sea and Women Should Be Measured
By Dift'oreul Standards.
Men and women should be judged
by different moral standards, accord
ing to Rev. Wm. Boynton Gage of
3Des Moines, who made this declara
tion in an address to students of High
land Park college at Highland Park
Presbyterian church.
Woman's environment offers less
temptation and greater protection ac
cording to Rev. Mr. Gage and there
for she is entitled to less leniency than
man when she commits sin. He be
lieves the present system of two
moral standards against which most
ministers of the gospel enter earnest
protest, is eminently fair.
"Woman herself is responsible,"
said Rev. Mr. Gage, "for much of the
cynicism by which her sex is regard
ed by man. The allurements and
blandishments of the coquette the
fickleness of the flirt the slur or
neglect of society, account in no small
measure for it.
"How often is she weighed in the
balances of those temptations which
man in love's name, causes her to
feee? If she falls, man loses his re
spect for the sex and she loses the
respect of society. Her fellow-woman
throws about her the scarlet robe that
makes her a social outcast.
"Knowing this full weH, both man
and nature join in throwing about
Tier unusual protection in the days of
ler. youth. She does not hear as much
profanity as the boys and certainly
does not hear as much obscenity and
filth. Her knowledge of evil and
temptation and tendencies are less

POLITICAL GOSSIP.
Old Timer Regrets Vicissitudes Which
C«me in Ward County.
"it is mighty discouraging," said a
prominent reorganizer, "to try and
build up the grand old party and get
things in good condition, and then
have to fight the old battle over again
this year of 1906. 1 suppose Ma].
Murphy is out of it, but then the Mur
phy influence is still alive, and I pre
sume it will be hard work for the dif
ferent factions to get together and
present a united front at the next
state convention. 1 hope to live to
see the day when Ward can send
down a delegation that will cut a little
figure, and we can never expect to do
that until we cease these bitter cam
paigns for control every two years."
Great changes in store fronts have
taken place during the past six
months in this city and more are in
progress. The appearance of the bus
iness streets has been much changed
and that very much for the better.
How a new front transforms the ap
pearance of a store sometimes! Take
that of the P. P. Lee department store
for example. The new swell front
there now is one of the features of
main street and the improved appear
ance is worth all it cost and then
some.
The coal mines near this city offer

than her brother's. It 'is easier for
her to become a Christian and usually
she joins the church.
"Under the circumstances 1 say it
would be most unfair to judge both
sexes by the same moral standard,
The double standard which prevails
today, is far more just."
FOOTBALL ALRIGHT.
I'resldout Hartley So Says at Yale Din
ner—Too Much Talk the Trouble.
At a recent Yale alumni dinner in
New York President Hodley gave the'
following expression to his views on
foot ball
"Football is a major sport, like hunt
ing or deep sea sailing. Like them,
it involves much physical hardship and
some physical danger. To understand
why people incur this hardship and
danger a man must have what is
known as 'sporting blood.'
"During the 30 years we have played
Rugby football at Yale there has been
110
death, and to the best of my knowl
edge no grave case of permanent in
jury.
"As for modifications of the rules,
we are content to leave that matter in
the hands of Mr. Camp and we are
glad that the reforms looking toward
open play, which he for the past year
has been most strenuously advocating,
are at length to be realized.
"The extravagant interest in foto
ball presents a harder problem to deal
with than the extravagant use of foot
ball money. It is not the football
players themselves who have the most
exagerated estimate of the importance
of the game. It is the spectators
rather than the players, graduates
Furniture

business for twenty
years in this city, we can offer
the very best in our several lines
and at prices that can not be
duplicated. Our connection
with one of the leading furni
ture concerns of Grand Rap

manufacturing business of the
country, enables us to give
prices lower than any other
house in the Northwest and
to make a specialty of furnish

terms as to make it an induce

MEW SOQ TOWN.
Of Tolley Is Moving Along. Many
New Buildings Put Up.
Cashier Olson of the State bank of
Tolley, one of the new towns In this
county on the Soo extension,, was a
visitor in the city yesterday. Mr. Ol
son says that Tolley already has three
fine brick blocks and streets lined
with cement sidewalks, and the town
is only three or four months old. He
predicts great things for Tolley, and
if the town is a "chip of the old
block"—E. C. Tolley, after whom it
is named, it will Certainly be a hum
mer.
One of the leading and most public
spirited business men of Minot is Mar
tin Jacohson, proprietor of the well
known hardware store. Mr. Jacobson
occupies spacious quarters in a build
ing of his own and carries a large
stock of various kinds of goods em
bracing shelf and heavy shop hard
ware, builders' hardware, tools, cut
lery, etc., and a full line of plumbing
goods, paints, oils and glass and other
material used in building forms an im-

son has represented Ward county in
the state senate, owns tlie Minot opera
house, and is a prominent stockholder
and director of the Union National
bank.

company has recently expended the
sum of $20,000 in improvements.

make this difficulty worse.
"The trouble is not that football is
too much played, but that it is too
much talked about."
FOR THE POOR MAN.
North Dakota is a Place Where All
Cau Rise if Industrious.
Minneapolis Journal C. O. Wheeler
and wife of Valley City, N. D., are
guests today at the Hyser hotel. From
there they will go to California for
the winter. Mr. Wheeler is a sample
of the Minneapolis man who went
west and "made good."
"I left Minneapolis in 1S91," he said
today, "and landed in Valley City
with hardly 50 cents in my pocket. I
found it the right country for a poor
man to advance in. I got to dealing
in lands and—well with my wife I
now spend every winter in California.
I believe North Dakota today holds
the greatest chance for poor men to
advance themselves. A man who is
all right can buy good land in North
Dakota on time can secure seed and
farm implements on time, and can
even get all his merchandise and
groceries on credit till he harvests
his first crop. What other country
offers such advantages as this? North
Dakota is the place for the poor man
to better himself if he has any energy
and ambition about him."

UP TO PATE CAPE.
The Grill Is a Model Place for Business
Men Wfco are in a Rash.
Business men are always In a hurry.
They want lunch served quickly and
the business men's lunch from 11 to 2
at the Grill cafe fills the bill. There
is a change in the bill of fare every
day and nothing is omitted if it is ob
tainable in the market to make a pala
table and substantial lunch. The chef
who presides over the culinary depart
ment has worked in some of the best
restaurants in the country. Prompt
ness is one of the rules of the place.
The proprietor of The Grill is Mr. E.
Skeoch formerly' of Fargo, who treats
his customers with unvarying courtesy
and is very popular with them. The
Grill is located in the elegant new
Scofield block, and by many is re
garded as the best place of its kind in
North Dakota.
Velva is to institute an I. 0- O. P.
lodge tei the near future and the Minot
team will go down and do the work
for the boys.
Electric Line Project.
There is a project on foot for an
electric line in this city. Minot is
growing more metropolitan every
day, and the electric cars will come
in due time with many other good
things.
The new high school building will
be completed about February 1.
AMUSEMENTS
Yankee Doodle Girls.
The management of the Metropol
itan is to be congratulated on securing
the Yankee Doodle Girls for Wednes
day evening. If reports from other
cities are to be believed, this company
is one of the largest and best equipped
on the road. Two lively travesties
and a brilliant array of vaudeville tal
ent make up the programme. The
opening piece is called "The Misfitable
Insurance Company," and is a take-off
on recent interesting doings in insur
ance circles. The comedy portion is
bright and breezy, and handsomely
gowned women take part in the
dances, marches and concerted bits.
A grand tableau, called "The Spirit of
'76," brings the first part to a close.
In fact, during the entire show there
flows a vein of patriotism. The olio is
as follows: Mack & Mach, singers and
dancers, Ward & Schuester, comedi
ans, Anna Yale, assisted by Sadie
Husted and company in a one act play
let, Larry Smith, Mamie Champion and
company in a catchy sketch, and the
fiVe Baker troupe in their death defy
ing venture, "Looping the Gap." "A
Trip to the Hippodrome" brings the
entertainment to an end. In this is
shown a correct reproduction of the
famous New York hippodrome, one of
th6 greatest amusement enterprises of
the century. The comedy is written
around the efforts of a gay soubrette
to induce a "Rube" to purchase the
hippodrome. ..slt^giye^ plenty of scope

Rev. G. L. Powell—I want to take
this opportunity to congratulate you
on the handsome appearance of the

paper is high class. It Is alive in

Miss Jennie Anderson of Minneapo

On Doods or the Transcient—Which 1
Saturday evening while Ticket
Agent Doods of the Great Northern,
was urbanly assuring the patrons of
the road when the many belated trains
would get in or leave, a young lady
approached the window and demanded
when a certain train would get in.
She was assumed at such an-hour and
turning on the genial pastboard push
er a scornful look, the fair, one ex
claimed: "You lie,, you told me once
before that it would be in at such a
time and it did not cotne." Mr. Doods
assured her that he was better inform
ed this time, but she scorned his as
sertion of intended veracity and went
away. A few minutes after the train
pulled out sha was back for further
information affd when told that the
train was gone, she burst into tears.
The cruel ticket agent then and there
read her a lecture on calling railroad
men liars for the freaks of nature
which make late trains. However, his
natural kindheartedness and polite
ness to the sex, overcame ijis moral
views of her sin, and he helped her
out of the difficulty by suggesting
how she might reach her destination
by another route.
Nothing seems to please a loafer so
much as his ability to bother a busy

Her Experience.
By her own confession Mrs. Castle
Pope, ,19 of Kansas City, te a burglar,
and was infatuated with the danger
ous calling. She Bays that witty her
husband, William Phillips, 19, she
robbed more than a dozen houses in
this city of goods, fifom jewels to (ace
powder.
"I was. scared to delth the first
time." she told a reporter. "WllL went
in the house while I stood on the out
side and kept watch. Although there
was no one at home in the place, 1
was afraid all tyte/tloie that they
would come home. When a policeman
went by I thought that he surely must
have heard my heart beat. It sounded
like a trip hammer.
"After the first two times, however,
I got used to it, and wasn't half as
much afraid of being caught as Will
wa.s I got him to let me go inside
while, he kept watch. I .liked that
more excitement to it and Was do
ing something instead of waiting
about on the outside with my heart in
my throat.
"I used to go through .the houses
and pick out the best they had. Fine
dress goods and jewelry were weak
nesses of mine, and I always had the.
best kind.of clothes.
The couple had just left a fiat in a
fashionable neighborhood when a,
neighbor, who knew the 'tenants of
the flat were out of town, pursued
them, and after a struggle captured
the girl. Phillips was arrested later
by detectives. He also' confessed to
the robberies, and claimed the girl
was the guiding spirit 6f all their rob
beries.
LAXSFOKD FIRE.
The town of Lansford on the Mohall
branch was almost entirely wiped out
by fire Saturday morning entailing a
loss of $54,000 The entire business
"district is in ashes and only brave
work of the volunteer department
saved the residence district from re
ceiving the same fate The fire started
in the office of the Lansford Times at
7 o'clock and immediately spread, ow
ing to a high wind, to adjoining build
ings. At 10 o'clock five principal busi
ness blocks had been totally* destroyed.
Altogether ten structures were de
stroyed before the conflagration was
under control of the firemen and a
brigade of citizens, who worked hero
ically to stop the spread of the Barnes.
The business houses destroyed were
the First State bank. Guy L. Scott,
publisher of the Lansford Times,
Banks Brothers' general store, postof
flce, C. J. Stepherers' general store,
and J. B. Hall, attorney at law office.
The fire was extinguished at 11
o'clock. The origin of the fire is be
lieved to be a defective gasoline en
gine in the office of* the Lansford
Times, where the disastrous blaze
started. Lansford has a population of
550 people. iv-Pfe- v-
