The meet ing was scheduled tor-yesterday, but it was postponed another week. The towns of Calumet and Lake Linden will send delegates to the meeting, this year, and it is believed that some agreement will be reached whereby the copper country cities will .be included in' the circuit. Whether the circuit will be enlarged to eight clubs, or whether Superior, Crookston and Grand Forks will drop out aad give place to Calumet, Lake Linden and other copper country towns, will be settled at the meeting. At that time the officers of the league will also be elected for the coming year. President E. H. Kent is said to be out of baseball .this year, and his successor will have to be chosen. It is understood that he will not even attend next Sunday's meet ing. As yet there is no hint of the man who will be selected. Of the outlook the Dultith Herald says: "The league is now planning for its fifth season, and is in the most prosperous condition it has ever seen. The outlook is bright for the coming year. The four cities which will be left from last year's sextet are all en thusiastic over baseball, and are pre pared to get into the game energetic ally. They all cleared expenses and made a little, money last year, and are prepared to give their teams substan tial backing this season." BKMIDJI TO HAVE TEAM. Ilanelinll Fans to Orgnnlze a Slock Company. Bqmidji is the first city in the north west to start baseball talk in earnest for the season of 1906. The coming summer will probably see rupye strong amateur, or semi-professional ball teams in. northern Minnesota than were ever in the field, and for that reason the following from the Bemidji Pioneer, regarding the plan proposed there to get the team on a firm basis, will be of special interest at this time to all other places where the fever is apt to break out during the next few weeks. The Pioneer says: "Although the baseball season is yet some months distant, local fans are planning on what is to be done to sefcure and maintain a first class ag gregation of semi-professional player* for the team this year. It is a fact to be regarded/that heretofore baseball in Bemidji has never been a success, and while several prominent business men-have been unceasing in their ef forts to secure a good team, in which they were success in 1904 and par tially so last season, the small attend ance at games together with other dis agreeable features, made the credit side of the baseball ledger look decid edly slim and some of these same busi ness men who took interest in the team and pushed it ahead were forced at the end of the season to dig down into their jeans and "make"good" for some of the expenses that had been incurred during the season. "As a result these men are not- anx ious to take hold of the team the coming season unless there is aa as surance that ample support can be se cured. At the present time a plan is being talked of that would probably result in the securing of first class material and an increase in- the pat ronage at games. "The scheme is to form a stock company, issue 100 share at $10 each, making the paid-up capital of the company, $1,000. It is planned to lease attract of land in the heart of the city, if possible, and use a portion of the money paid in for the purpose of erecting a grand stand and preparing the grounds. This work, it is estimat ed, could ,be done for $500, thus leav ing a balance of $500 in the treasury at the beginning of the baseball sea son. "With this money in the treasury, it is claimed, players could be secured and games scheduled on short notice, and the work of managing the team would be much facilitated. "The change of -location form the fair grounds, a mile distant from the cityt to a place, easily accessible to people living in all sections of the city, would result ^n a much larger at tendance at games, and the team would thus be made self supporting, providing a gooii article of baseball were provided." -188 g§f|J Of Farmers' Institute at Valley City, North" Dakota. The closing session of the farmers' institute at Valley City Wednesday afternoon was by no means the least valuable one of the series. 0ne farri er .styled -.it^is the'most profitable to him, without reflecting at all what had gone before. The principal -fea ture was Jhe address of Prof. W B. Richards of .the agricultural college. He spoke on Market Classes of Horses and How to Breed Them The pro fessor first outlines what was being done ft -th# A. C. in the way of teach ing the young men as much as possi ble about stock raising. Owing to the lack of proper equipment, just at'pres ent, the faculty in the animal indus try department was not able to do all that they would like to do and they hav^ to depend yery largely upon the* breeders in the state. He desired to express thanks and appreciation for the .valuable assistance rendered by BarneS: county -breeders along many lines. It was one of the most re-, sou rceful counties in the state as /with in her borders there was so much pure blood stock. He wanted his hearers to remember well that in a state like, ttys that every pure blood enthusiast is -h tnan of great bene/U/ to the community where he lives. He urged the farmers to keep in close touch with such men, be friendly and assist in friendly rivalry. It'will be found profitable, "don't knock and be come Jealous if your .neighbor phould, become, enterprising "and get l& vfine1 blooded horse. 'Glye the animal the'' Credit tor all the -good points it pos sesses." Professor Richards confined his talk to draft horse, breeds. He first vgave a general outline of the market classes and ^tvt diBCfinttnattag bu^ers are on: the look out for: By, means of •'a idiart' the speaker showed clearly the7po(nts yhioh a souad horae njust posseMt he jpointed out defeats which partners must look for, JKe was stfre that "North pali0t^ .can, *nd shouifi, pro duc^e good draft h6r»*«. That «)afls easy ta? ral^ to %eH, especially weighing from 1,600 to 1,900 pounds. He dwelt considerably upon the value pf a horse's pastern and how slight defects sIn that will detract from, the belling value. A horse with a nerfectly form ed pastern can work on the pave ments "of the gr^t cities much easier, and will always possess well con ditioned feet find he described why.. To, come to breeding,' the speaker forcefully Illustrated the value of a good mare. He urged the farmers to keep their good mares, not to sell them and along this line he spoke of the great necessity of having a fixed purpose in the progress of breeding. Above all don't make the common mistake of pampering mares In the winter, to get' the best results a preg nant animal must be active, use com mon sense an(l exercise kindness above all things, don't get impatient. When the colt comes begin to push de velopment at once. The frame and general attributes are formed during the first two years of Its life. Here Professor Richards demonstrated how valuable good feeding was and of what it should consist to produce the best form and, development for a working horBe. The colt wants protean feed, oats and bran, a little oil cake and if possible clover hay and he descNbed why the latter was preferable, If posr sible weari two colts together. The horse i$ a sociable animal and the youngsters love company and thrive on it. Mr. Richards then described the points to look out for in the selection of a sire. This matter in regard to sires is not given the attention it ought to have. Pick a horse that has produced uniform colts and one that possesses the proper quality of pre potency and he described the points to look out for. His advice was to use pure bloods always. The talk was followed by a discus sion on the general care and feeding E. S. DeLancey personally thanked Professor Richards for his very useful and practical talk, it was the best he had heard for along time. The tech nical and practical features demon strated by the speaker were worth thousands of dollars to the average farmer if he#would only go home and apply them. He had heard in his day "horse talks" which simply made him. siclt. Mr. DeLancy then proceeded to give his hearers some practical hints about the care of horses. He empha sized the proper dressing of horses at all times—if it is cold enough to use a blanket see that it is left secure. Horse safety pins are cheaper than a sick horse on your hands. Look to the harness and see that it fits and that it is properly taken care of, not allowed to get dry and hard. A man comfortably dressed for work doesjiet ter execution and more work than the man who is not. It is the same with horses. He urged the farmers to appreciate What the professors were doing at the agricultural college and to give them help and co-operation. whenever the opportunity afforded. It will be found to pay. Responding to a special request Ed itor Wing of The Breeders' Gazette, Chicago, told the story of his life, and how he and his father replenished a taised the annual piofits from $7o0, in two or three years, to $2,500 a year. He said the people of this country were the greatest robbers of soil fer tility in the world. Half an hour was spent in general question asking and answers and that seemed to be of great interest to the farmers and the ladies. A. K. Bush of Dover, Minn., one of the institute corps, in a moving vote :-".^'SE"'-s-" THX of horses. One man complained of D., which was the headquarters for the absence of nutrition in certain grasses on the prairie in this part of the state and how it differed from some western, sections and he could not keep his horses and colts fat in the winter time. The wife of a farmer in another part of the hall told him why. He failed to investigate the con ditions of the land used for pasture. The darly frosts froze up some varie ties of grasses, before they had be come winter cured and if that condi tion exists it is simply a waste of time to turn out horses and cattle on to it. .Then he knew of some farmers who di-ove their horses fifteen miles out to pasture, left them for the win ter, wholly unmindful of whether there was ample feed and water supply, and then wonder w^hy the animals were all skin and bone when spring time came. The discussion brought out, a great many, valuable points and tlie ques tions asked afforded Mr. Richards plenty of opportunity to talk "out in meeting" and tell some farmers why they were not successful. They did not always act with intelligence. They allowed things to care for them selves and did not watch conditions. A horse is a noble animal, but it can not come up to the barn in the winter time and tell its owner that if there was feed and water to get at he would find it and do the rest, it is wholly incompetent to get something out of nothing and the farmers who expects, it will simply get dead horses sooner or later. of thanks, to all who had assisted in cavalry went out in pursuit of hos making the Barnes county institute /uch a notable success called atten tion to the great impetus an institute gave to better and more profitable work on the farms. The tillers of the land were better for rubbing should ers with each. Ideas were exchanged a.nd rusty spots in working plans were made bright. For the drive about the city they were especially thankful. Every part of Valley City showed signs of prosperity. Mr. DeLancey made a suitable response, he said every- busi ness man in Valley City had subscrib ed $10 to the fund for institute ex penses, except two-and they were the representatives of a mall order house In Minneapolis and another .one in Chi cago. James Austin of, Hannah declared that he knew of no town where so many pains had been taken by the' citizens generally to ensure the com fort of those .attending the Institute and the general success of the insti tute itself.

TRIP OF THE FAB WEST. Grant P, Margh in Washburn Lead er From the number of young people who want me ^to write on old times, one would think, 1,-w^s an historian or a correspondent of the London t^imes, but to come right down to businejss thought it. would not. be «amiss to tell of the .trip ot the steam er Far .West. Ifhe Custer affair has been worn threadtyire. lmt the tyumt important trip: ever made by a Sifts-, sourl river steaxnhOat lias neveiV been tpld. was In' eommahd of the sup* ply boat on every Indian expedition, «npr made upr th* 'Y^lOwstono rlyer, and I also had command MM TUOW, ORAMD ETnmro The Indians gave the soldiers so much trouble that they could not protect the surveyors. Gen. Rosser was the engineer in charge of the surveying party. The expedition was gone all summer and in 1S74, there was a small expedition to the Powder river. In the Winter of 1874 and 1875, tlie government decided to sattle the Indian question for all time, and in the spring of .'75, my boat, steamer Josephine, was, chartered to make a complete exploration of the Yellow stone river. We started from Yank ton In .April and on reaching Bis marck, took on board Gen. Forsythe, Col. Fred Grant of Gen. Slieirdan's staff, Charley Reynolds, wild was Gen. Custer's favorite scout, and sev eral others. We made a very successful trip to a* point about 90 .miles above the Big Horn river to Pompey's Pillar, the res.ult of which was that as soon as Gen. Forsythe made his report, they commenced to organize the expedi tion of 1876. I lived at Yankton, S. all boats, and I was ordered to select any boat that I thought most suitable for the trip, I selected the Far West, a powerful, light draft craft, with but a small cabin to bother it in the high winds Which prevail in that country. We left Yankton in the early part of April, 1876, with government stores for Fort Lincoln, which was the head quarters for the 7th Cavalry, Gen. Custer's regiment. Nothing of inter est occurred on the tip-river trip and when we arrived at Fort Lincoln we learned that the expedition had been gone about ten days to march to Pow der river, where they were to meet the supply boat. While we unloaded our cargo, Mrs. Custer and all of the officers' wives came on board this was the custom in those days as the forts were lonesome places at best and the arrival of a boat was almost as good as a Fourth of July celebra tion. During the afternoon, while ihey were on the boat, the steward prepared coffee and lunch for them. 1 was busy attending to the loading of supplies for the Cavalryv and when lunch was ready, Mrs. Custer called to me to come and eat with them. While we were enjoying the lunch, Mrs. Custer remarked to me that the general had said that if I were will ing, she and Mrs. Lieut. Smith might make the trip with'me on the boat but one reason why I had chosen the Far West instead of my own boat, Josephine, which had a fine cabin on it, was to keep passengers from going on this trip. I told them in as polite a way as I could that if 1 had my own boat where they had the best of accommodations, I would like very much to have them with us, but- on this boat there were no conveniences, and it really was no place for ladies. We would probably have sick and woundfed, on the boat, and I did not think it would, be pleasant for them. 1 could see they were disappointed, but that it was best that they did not make the trip '"as otherwise they would 'have been on the boat when their husbands were killed. When we had finished loading, we received a hearty farewell, and were off for the trip. We made good time, l!1'1,.'eacl?ed,Po^ler ,riv?r N. D. rows, the boat that explored the Yellow stone river in 1873: By orter of (Sen. Sheridan, Gen.: G. H. Forsythe was the military com mand to learn If the river was nav agable In order to supply the army byrv river transportation. The army was necessary, to protect the survey ors of the N. P. R. R. The trip was successful, and on Gen. Forsythe's report the first Custer expedition was made In 1873 from Fort Rice to a point above the Big Hord river. 1 was in command of. the supply boat. Custer's first battle with the Sioux Indians took place a short distance from the mouth of the Big Horn river. Lieut. Braden of the 7th Cav alry, was wounded* and is a cripple to this day. I had him on the boat after he was wounded, and brought him to Bismarck. be,fore l,he army arrived. They had pack mules to carry-their supplies, and would en camp near the river where they could take supplies-from the boat. We met the army again at the mouth of Rose bud river, the army going into camp at that point. We were "in camp at this point several days, and while there, the 7th Infantry with Gen. Gib bons in command,' met us. They marched from Fort Shaw, Montana. They were there several days. Gen. Custer had with .him his brother Tom, who was captain of one of the troops his nephew, a young man by the name of Reed and his -vounser brother, Boston, while the SC outs were sent out to locate the camp of the hostile Indians, and when they returned, the plan of the cam paign was made on my boat by Gens. Terry, Custer and Gibbons, the for mer named general being the rank ing officer in command of the depart ment. While there, Boston Custer* and I became great friends. When we were ordered to separate on June 22, the tile Indians which the scouts had lo cated, and the boat was to meet the cavalry at the mouth of the Little Big Horn river, fifty-four miles up Big Horn river, if the river was found, navigable, if not, to remain at the junction of the Yellowstone and Big Horn rivers in order to furnish tbem with supplies. The 7th Infantry was to march up the north side of the Yellowstone to the junction of the Big Horn and Yellowstone, the boat to meet them there and take them across- to the south side, which we did." As I said, Boston Custer, or Boss as he was called, and I wanted him to *ttay on the boat with me until we mettle cavalry, which he had con sented to do. At noon that day, we were to send the mall back,from there and Boss said to me, "I will go in yo'ur office and write & letter to my mother before the mail closes." He 'wrote his letter and then went out to the tent to get some tobacco and that is the last time I saw him, for some unknown reason he changed bis plans and accompanied the Ill-fated cavalry. While going past Gen. Cus ter's tent, the general called me and said, -"Boss has told me that he Is goin£ with you, but I am afraid he will'eat you out of house and home." I am sure the general wished Boss to go with me, but I was never able to find-out how Boss happened to change his plans. As I started to say, at noon we were to send the mail t,o Buford, a sergeant of the 6th Infantry, named Fox, fuid two soldiers were Belected to go wit)* the mail. They were to make the trip in a skiff down the river, but not knowing how to han dle, the skiff, and'the current being swift, the skiff turned over before they had gone very far, and Sergeant Fox, and two -soldiers were drowned and the mail lost. There was a large ac cumulation of mall, .which had been collected since the-army left Fort Lin coln, .and 'in it was ttie last letter 'that Gen/ Custer had written to his ,'^ile, also tbe letter Boas had written hls mother. I ordered my. men to jwareh toi* tbe bodies ot the soldiers and -tor th* mail. tbe officers told me "jtat" thOy/ thought nolle of the'mall could be recovered as the current of the river was very rapid, but I had grapplers and boat hooks and kept at work, and we were finally rewarded in finding the mail but none of the bodies. Of course, the mall was all wet but we spread out all the letters on the upper deck and dried them, and not a letter was lost. Perhaps It might be'well to explain the reason for sending the mail in a skiff, as it would take a small army 1ft carry It overland on account of the Indians, with the skiff they could run at night, and hide in the willows and timber during the day ,aiuf in that way es cape the Indians. The widow of Sergeant Fox married another man in the regiment by the same name, who died recently in Bis-K! marck. I am told she now lives in Bismarck. According to the plans, after we crossed Gen. Gibbons' command, we were to make the attempt to reach the Little Big Horn river in order to give the cavalry supplies, which were to meet us at the point. Capt. Baker of the Gth Infantry, was in military command of the boat with his company on board. He is the man who built the building where the Mer chants' State Bauk is now located in Bismarck. With lots of hard work and by using the steam capstain to pull the boat over the many rapids, we reached the Little Big Horn safe I ly. When we arrived there, we could see no signs of anyone ever being I there. there We just duty called, "Indians!" All hands were not long in getting out. When the Indians came nearer to the boat we could see a white man ahead of them pursued by the Indians, both he and the Indians were counted. The white man reached us safely. He was Muggins Taylor, a scout sent to find the boat after the battle and had the boat not been there the Indians would have surely captured him in a short time. He told us of the fate of Cus ter and his men. Two soldiers of the 7th Infantry came the next morning at daylight and told us to prepare to take care of the 52 wounded which they were trying to get to the boat The next night the 7th Infantry ar- rived \yith the wounded and after talc- ing them aboard, we started for Fort Lincoln. One of the men died and we stopped at Powder river to bury him. We also made short stops at Fort Buford, Bertholrl and Stevenson and arrived at Bismarck about dark, having made the trip in forty-four hours, the quickest time ever made by any western steamboat for a like distance. We remained at. Bismarck over night here Dr. Mlddleton relieved the hero, IJr. Porter, who had become about exhausted, as he had been on duty day and night attending to the wants of the fifty-two wounded. Dr. Lord and Dr. DeWolf were killed in battle also Mark Kellogg, who was correspondent of the Bismarck Tri bune. He was my guest on the boat on the trip up the river until two days before he was killed. Capt. Mc Caskie, Lieut. Gurley and Lieut. Burns also came aboard, Dr. -Mlddleton, all old timers at Bismarck no doubt know them well. We started the next morn ing at daylight for Fort Lincoln. Af ter we landed, the officers above men tioned went to all of the officers' wives whp had lost their husbands, with some excuse of which I never knew, got them all to meet at Mrs. Custer's house and told them what happened. There were twenty-eight widows, in cluding officers' and soldiers' wives. Such a scene was never witnessed, men, women andvchildren came run ning to the boat crying and wanted to learn the fate of their husbands, sons and brothers.

I never saw one of them again after we had the lunch on the boat. GRANT P. MARSH. HIS MISTER'S LETTER. Dear Biil: •I'm not going to say anything about how soon the mortgage is going to be paid off, how many times Bob has been Up to see what particular form of fool ishness the younger members of the family have been Indulging in, and all the other things that usually write about, for I see that the very newest thing in letters Is a very impersonal discussion of any thing that will fill about a column. Your replies, I'd like t9 give you notice, should inspire me for next week's letter. For instance, if I discuss dancing in its many phases this week you ought to write back, or else 1 can pretend that vou write back, which will do just as good, and write you some more interesting plati tudes. It's very decent of you to take such an interest in the Austrian dances, so kind of socialistic and Jack Londonish all that idea out of my head. For instance, the free and easy familiar ity that exists may be awt'ullv good form, but then 1 couldn't think of giv- I ing up the grace, which girls ought to and stand for above everything, there's not a single mention minuet to be danced. Then there's another thing you fel lows should stand, for, or at least stand off, and that is your partners' feet. What in the world you can see, of ease of attitude, or grace of motion, nor how you can persist so in a cus torn which at once brands it as abso' of a 'utely lacking in the other person's fee'ings J'01' is beyond me. The next time no,ice a picture of a foreign court ball, notice where the men's feet are and you will invariably see that they are on the floor. Of course, it is all very well, to say the girls don't mind, but honestly, Billy, you just ask them, and if you get an honest opinion you will find that nine out of every "ten girls would much prefer not to have her feet stepped on. And there is the question of part ners. Don't dance with more than one at a time. This silly custom has nothipg to commend it and is a silly innovation that the Best People are all frowning upon. There is another thing I would like to speak to you about, and it remains lor you men to correct at your dances, and that is the habit of some girls to rest their chins on ?our shoulder while dancing, or course, I know that you are not, directly responsible, but l'e got to blame you for some thing, and, to say nothing of the goo goo look of the attitude to the on looker, think of the danger there is in it ior a girl if she should happen 'a have her tongue between her teeth as you histed vour shoulder to assist you in guiding her through the intri cate mazes. The end of her principal speaking organ might be clipped ri&ht off, and yon can imagine the difficulty of hunting on a dancing floor for the end of a lady's tongue, when one has such difficulty in finding a handker cief, a fan, a bunch of flowers and a few yards of lace which have been ripped off her pettiskirt. This letter is rather long and ramb ling and doesn't mean much of any- TOWN LOTS AT WYE On Picturesque Lake Upsilon The Coming Summer Resort of the Northwest A PROPOSITION THAT WILL SURPRISE YOU. 4 Clear as crystal, pure and fresh, fed by never failing mountain springs.

D„ tells why North Dakota is growing more rapidly than her Bis ter state on the south. The corre spondent attributes the difference in growth of population in the border counties to tbe superior advertising methods used in North Dakota. The dispatch: As a sample of the difference be tween the advertising policies of South Dakota and North Dakota, a. correspondent of the state census bu reau writes to ask the reason tor the different conditions in the border counties along the line between the two states. He gives the figures to: show that while the counties in North Dakota lying along the line have in creased 54 per cent, in population, in the last five years, the corresponding counties of Edmunds, Walworth, Campbell and McPherson, in Sooth. Dakota, lying in the same section, show a net decrease of 2 per cent, tor the same period. He desires to know the reason of this, and whether there is any difference in soil or other con ditions to account for it. Of course, the fact that much or the. North Dakota country included has been homesteaded in the last five ears- "nfj the South Dakota counties were settled many years ago has something to do with this, yet it Is known that North Dakota is contin-'. ually reaching out for new popula- tion, while South Dakota is doing 1 nothing of the kind, is a large factor -.'-t In the matter. This state, while It led largely in population fifteen years/ ago, is now only about equal to Northi, Dakota, and at the same rate of in crease, soon' will be behind. Instead 3 of ahead, unless the methods of th*':4 north state ar copied, to a certain ex tent, at least. Want advertising has just enough of the "spice of chance" to make it in—f teresting—for the right person does, sometimes, fail to see the first inser tion of the ad. Try one in the E!ven ing Times.
