The Great Red River Valley Exposi tion which will open in this city July 31, is the best arranged county fair in •he state, and this year will be far bet ter than in the past which is saying a great deal, for there has never been & dull season since it was first inaug urated. Jt will have the two features of coun ty fairs so well balanced that there will he pleasure and profit for every one who attends. The plan is to give (lays of such sensational and amusing attractions that the fair will be to thorn a summer outing. It is the one misfortune that the fam ily on the farm, especially those loca ted at a considerable distance from the towns, do not have the opportunity of enjoying the things that, constitute the daily amusement of the city resident. They have the opportunity for study and absorption of the best in the liter ature of the day, and as a rule they are better versed in matters of general formation than those who live in the cities. But the mind needs relaxation, and the offer the best opportunities for that available to the peole who have so mnch of the .strenuous life during the rammei1. The management of the Red River Valley Exposition have secured for the pleasure of the patrons some of the best attractions to be found in the country.

The baud which will be at the fair is composed of the last of those whose exploits with lioise and gun made tliem famous a feiv years ago, and afforded the basis for many vivid stories and not a few ro mances. They are the last remnant ol that once important class which was so necessary to tile west when it was one iii-fat. herding ground. They will have witli them one of the horses which President Roosevelt lode when he was a citizen of North Dakota, and was not ashamed to wear Manuel shirts and overalls. Another tiling which has been pro cured for the especial edification of the farmers and their families is the aggregation of sensational and amuse ment features which attract thousands at such famous resorts as Coney Island and Wonderland. The thrilling bicycle somersault while the rider is literally (lying down an inclined plane, is something that would attract hundreds of spectators in any of the cities. It is brought to ihe very doors of the farmers of this stale at practically no cost to them. The famous Devil's Flume is another of the same class. In truth the whole lour "lays will be crowded so full of these things that they will pass like a great panorma. 'But. these are not all the attractions, for the farmers themselves have done their part, towards the success of the fair. The stables and pens will be filled w'ith the finest stock that was ever gathered together in one fair. Al restfly enough has been entered to guar antee an exhibit that cannot be rivalled this side of the Chicago stock show. To the average man there is noth ing more attractive from an agricul tural standpoint than tine stock. New York society turns out en masse every year to witness the famous horse show in .Madison Square Garden, yet there cannot be found in all that exhibition finer stock than can be seen at the coming fair in this city. The agricultural exhibits are largely of an educational nature, but. there will be sufficient spice from the other fea turev to keep the time from weighing too heavily. As a matter of fact in this state the majority of the people are inuct at home in an agricultural gath ering. It is the life of the countrj. and it is a peculiarity of our natures that we find most pleasure in talking on matters in which we are interested. The city will open its doors to the people who attend the fair, and they will find one of the most royal wel comes which can possibly be extended. There must he the most cordial rela tion between the agriculturalists and the people of the city, for they are mu tually dependent on the other, and the lair is certainly the most opportune time to cultivate this relationship. IIIE WORLD'S FREEDOM. The trembling of the Russian empire on the brink of ruin marks an epoch in the history of the world which is decidedly gratifying to those who be lieve that, universal liberty is the des tiny of the human race. Not, many centuries ago the power of the king over the life, liberty and property of his subjects was absolute, and no one dared to question the idea that he ruled by divine right. But as education became more general the fal lacy of this idea became better under stood, and no intelligent man would now think of considering the king as anything more than a personal repre sentative of the state—a mere figure head. Russia is the last of the supposed civilized nations to hold on to the ridic ulously absurd doctrine, and to per mit religious bigotry to blind the eyes of the people to the truth that the czar is nothing more than a weak and cow ardly man who by accident of birth has been made ruler over then). Ami even in the benighted country the truth is beginning to dawn OR the more enlightened subjects. The czar is a pitiful illustration of the absurd ity of making a ruler out of a man who lacks every qualification for such a po sition. He is weakly trying to hold fast to a power which he can not control. The voice of the people has been raised against the tyranny of the czar and his advisors who have beconte the ac tual rulers of the country. The power of the czar over the lower classes is slipping from his grasp, and yet in his self conceit he will not admit it. He clings to the bauble that he rules by di vine right while he trembles in his pal- ace lest Vifs subjects hurl him into eter nity by means of a deadly bomb. In every part of domain comes re ports of defiance to his authority and attempts to destroy his power. A quarter of a century ago he would have answered these protests by banishment to Siberian desolation. Now he can neither grant the demands asked with out destroying his own power over the people nor can he quell the rising storm which must sweep him from his throne. Ii is the passing of tyranny in Rus sia. Like the majority of such revolu tions it is being accomplished only by means for which revolutions should blush, and at which a civilized world shudders. But a better day will dawn for the people of Russia. They will learn in the bitter school of experience that before they can rule themselves as a nation they must learn to rule them selves as individuals. They will learn that anarchy is not freedom, and that liberty is a guarantee of tRe life and property of another. They will learn that reason and not passion must be the corner stone upon which all liberty is built. When they have been schooled in the fundamental principles of political and religious freedom, they will be able to take from the unworthy hands of a ty rant the power he seeks to retain over their lives and property and to exer cise it for the betterment of mankind. The last step in the emancipation of mankind will then have been taken and except for the savage tribes which will probably never rise above their present conditions because of the low order of their intellect, the nations of the earth will be free. If such an event will mark a new cycle in the his tory of the world, and those who have dreamed of the universal freedom of man will behold the dream come true. WORST'S GOOD IDEA. President Worst of the North Da kota Agricultural College has made a suggestion concerning the visitors who are taken to that college every year |Oi- the purpose of studying the methods in vogue there, which deserves con siderable attention. It is his desire that as many farmer boys as possible shall be included "in the list of those who make the trip. It is a splendid plan. It is true that the primary purpose of these excursions was that the farmers of the state might, study the methods pursued by the ex perts in securing the results which have made the college famous as one of the foremost in the land. The farm ers have learned much anil they have certainly profited by the opportunities which they have had. They should continue to study the problems of agriculture at short range, lor by such means has this state been brought to the front in scientific fann ing. But there is a double purpose in having the boys visit the college on these excursions. It has been a lamentable fact that of late years the farmer boys have been drifting into professions and into bus iness, leaving a dearth of young men for the farm. They have proven far superior to the youths of the cities whose primary purpose in boyhood was to play the dude. The great practical problem in our economic policy is to secure a return of the youth to the soil. Agriculture has been looked upon as one of the lower callings, requiring neither brains nor special training. In fact, one of the reasons why so many young men have turned from it in the past has been that it offered no chance for men tal activity. Thinking men want an occupation, which will permit the use of the mental faculties. This condition is now becoming a feature of agricul ture. The boy who visits the Agricultural College with one of the excursions will si=e the demonstrations of the high er side of agriculture and they will have a higher conception of the pro fession than they would h::ve had from years of experience on the farm. They will see that instead of the calling be ing one of a menial character, that it has more opportunities for the display of a trained intellect than even the so called learned professions. They will go home enthusiastic advocates of farm life, and instead of rushing into an over crowded profession in which medioc rity stands no chance of winning, and where the pathway is strewn with the corpses of improperly directed ambi tion, they will qualify themselves for the profession of scientific agricultur alists, where the opportunities are as broad as the blue skies of heaven, and where the pears of professional star vation are unknown. It is this noble purpose which has prompted the suggestion of President Worst that the excursions include a large number of farm boys. If he cau create an enthusiasm among the young men of this state in the field of agricul ture and turn the talents of the boys into this channel, thereby to some ex tent equalizing the relation between the farm and the city, he will have done a work for which the generations to come will pay him homage. A THING OF DISHONOR. The republicans of this state will be satisfied with whatever action the del egates at Jamestown may take, for THE EV4NING TIMES, GRAND FORKS, N. D. they believe the people who elected these delegates were sufficiently honor able and intelligent to select men who were worthy of sitting in the councils of the party. But the disruptionist leaders, not content with the drubbing received at the hands of the voters, are now urg ing that the men who were selected by the people with the expressed or im plied understanding that in the con vention they would represent the will of the people who selected them, shall be false to their trust and assist them in nominating a crowd who are in har mony with the designs of these dis ruptionist leaders. It is unnecessary to discuss this matter from the standpoint of these del egates, for they are men who are not purchased for a promise nor driven by a threat. Neither are they men who will disregard a trust merely to please a crowd who have been repudiated by the people. But it shows the lack of honor and the low estimate of integrity held by those who are advocating the plan. In fact, it is evident that these leaders are mesuring the other man's coin in their own measure. They believe that, when a man is selected by his fellow voters to fulfill a political duty, and these voters so select him because they ex pect him to fulfill that duty in a cer tain manner, he is at liberty to betray their trust and play the traitor to those who trusted him. It is the most that could be suggested and could only come from men who would be willing to do the act themselves did opportuni ty present itself, and are therefore un able to appreciate or comprehend the value that men of honor place upon their political integrity to those who selected them. There are times in the history of great, political convention fights when delegates are compelled to depart from the implicit instructions of their con stitutents, but it is so often that one is found so unworthy of his trust that he will violate it. at the beck and call of one who merely hopes to use it for the gratification of a personal grudge ot to accomplish a personal end which the public will not endorse. The people of this state have spoken in a voice which could not be misun derstood arid- have, decided in favor of a continuation of republican rule. Men have been selected as delegates to •lamestown to carry out that expressed will of the' people. It is so understood by all except the disgraced and de horsed leaders, and now they advocate a plan of disregarding that mandate of the voters. It. is in strict keeping with all their other attempts to ruin the party by unworthy and dishonora ble methods. The Old Times. "Tlmso were s^oocl times,'' he used to say: "It's not liko those times nowaday.*' And sadly h»» would shake his head "No times like those today." he said. Then sat and mumbled absently "The world ain't what il used to be, Kor times wwe good, I tell you, then— I wish \vv had 'em buck again." Tlis eyes were dim. his hair was pray "The old times were the best," he'd say. •*\Vhy I remember when and he Would ramble riminiscontly. "It's not the same," his plaint he'd raise "It's not much like the good old days hen 1 was youtiK". and I can see The world ain't what it used to be." "It's not the same." and he would look Out where the idly winding brook Curled on along its shallow ways And babbled of those better days. "It's not the same it's plain to see When I was young." and murmured then "I wish we had 'em back again.'* .So thin and feeble and so old He was, and tremblingly he told Of all those better days "To me The times ain't what they used to be. Why. I ean remember when until His saddened eye would brim and Jill With tears that Sorrow brings and lays I'pon the bier of other days. "Those were good times until one day I stood beside him as he lay With such a peaceful smile that seemed Brought from the days whereof he dreamed. "Those were good times: thev were in truth." I whispered for the days of Youth Are always fair—and I knew then He had the old days back again. —J. W. Foley. Encouragement From Mars.

I wonder if those brawny scamps Who threw the dirt were heavy eaters, And, if their sanitary camps Were free from graft as well as skeeters? That tough old contract's done at last, And stands the marvel of our nation Who looks on Mars too much aghast For envy or congratulation.

[Courtney Gazette.] The state of North Dakota has had its first trial of the primary election law and considerable complaint is heard concerning the law. It is too cumbersome to be pratical and in or der to vote intelligently the voter would have to be well acquainted with every man on the ticUet, and that is an impossibility. In Courtenay per cinct there was some queer marking of ballots. A good many of them showed the work that had ben done by those who went around to "see" the voter. They showed conclusively the work the insurgents had been doing as many of the ballots were only marked for the candidates whose names appeared on the tickets the insurgents handed around. We believe it would be much better if the candi dates representing the different fac tions were placed in separate columns and then the voter could vote for the faction of his choice, or if he wished to vote a split ticket he could do that and it would not be necessary for him to be acquainted with all the men whose names appear on the ticket. Shy of Glory. (IIHlsboro Banner.] The Grnnd Forks Herald now admits that, the insurgents have not to exceed one-third of the entire number of dele gates in the coming state convention, although it made very extravagant claims shortly after primaries and kept, up the noise for some time. Newspaper readers want facts and do not care to have them juggled or con torted to suit the papers or even their own peculiar leanings or desires. The Herald did not cover itself with glory, in this instance, as a furnisher of reliable news. Caught With the Goods. [Fargo Call.) What has become of all the "show ing up of leaders of the republican party in North Dakota that the in surgents, were going to make before the close of the campaign for the pri maries? As a matter of fact, about every one of the leaders of the Insur gent movement has been caught with the goods on him, and been shown up as a grafter, pure and simple. Isn't that a fact? Should Keep Posted. [Canilo Herald.) The Grand Forks Herald should keep itself posted. Ever since the result of the primaries were known it has placed Towner county's dele gation in the insurgent, column, and given us credit for 10 delegates in stead of 9. The Herald has been de feated and should be honorable enough to admit it. The truth is our delegation stands 8 to 1 in favor of the "regular" republican organization. A Clumsy Juggler. I Kugby Optimist.) The Grand Forks Herald can come pretty near making figures lie—even though that, is generally considered an impossibility. They take enough delegates from the "stalwart" list every day and put over in the doubt column to make a. majority for the insurgents. It looks all right in print —to a person that don't know any better. Deserve Endorsement. [Cooperstown Courier.] Congressmen Gronna and Marshall received a splendid endorsement at home and should receive a renomin ation at the hands of the Jamestown convention. Their work in congress has been for the good of the people of the state and we see no reason why they should not be endorsed for an other term. A Job for the "Stuffed" Prophet. tFai-go Forum.) The Grand Forks Herald got wound up so making claims before election it couldn't stop after the primaries were over.

DAMAGE BY STORM In and Around Bemldjl Was Severe No One Injured. According to parties who have ar rived today from Bemidji, the storm of Thursday night did considerable damage'in and about that city. Sev eral fine oak trees, in the Boulevard park, were blown down and a number of chimneyiuwere thrown from houses. The wind attained great velocity, and the lightning flashed in a terrifying manner. On the Schoolcraft river and Lakes Markuette and Plantagnet, south of Bemidji, the storm did even worse damage. At the outlet of Lake Plantagnet, the Jester dam, which spans the Schoolcraft as it leaves the lake, was almost totally destroyed. The water was blown over the dam, which could not withstand the strain, and two'wings of the structure were car ried down stream. On Marquette lake an anchor was torn from a large boom of logs, belonging to T. A. Hatcher, the boom was broken and the logs scattered about the lake. A large amount of standing timber was blown down in that vicinity. Lightning struck at several points in the woods, but so far as known no residence was hit, and no one was Injured. Several Grand Forks people are camping at the lakes, but no injuries have been reported. Lake Plantagnet is where the Y. M. C. A. association camp Is to be made this month. It is a beautiful sheet of water located In Hubbard county, Minnesota. A ?Vf *, t' WATCH REPAIRING Save Both Phones 788M 113 De Mers Ave. ^cerps^ "The Umpire." /. In the second act of "The Umpire," the musical comedy which ran 304 nights in Chicago, there is a foot ball game that figuratively arouses a riot of enthusiasm in every audience that sees it. Twenty-two young girls line up in complete foot-ball armour and engage in a regular out-and-out con test that is as much in earnest as many inter-collegiate games. There are runs around the ends, double pass es, mass plays on center, scrimmages and half a dozen other grid-iron pro ceedings accomplished as skillfully as if a penant were at stake, and it oc casionally happens that the play be comes so sincere that time has to be called while the bruised half-backs nurse their injuries. The perfect illusion of the game is due to the fact that the players were coached by no less an authority than Professor A. A. Stagg, athletic director and foor-ball coach of the University of Chicago. Messrs. Hough and Adams, thi authors of ''Tile Umpire," al .mini of t'le university and are very popular both with the faculty aad with the thousands of undergraduates in the institution so thair request that Professor Stagg assist them in per fecting this feature of their most suc cessful entertainment was readily ac ceded to. Each member of the team has hid personal instruction concern ing the way to fall and be fallen upon with the least possibility of injury. The largest department store in Chi cago reports lhat its music depart ment his sold more of the songs of "The l.'m'pire' than of all the other productions of the season put together. Among the musical numbers in "The Umpire," which are particularly pop ular are "You Look Good to Father," "Cross Your Heart," "The Umpire is a Most Unhappy Man," "Let's Take a Trolley," and "The Drums of the Fore and Aft," the latter being a dashing military march, done with great spirit by fifty girls. "A Message From Mars.* When a new star Appears in die horizon about the first thing astron omers do is to give it a name. They likewise inform the public that a new discovery has been made. When a new star appears in the dramatic firmament the public have a right to know who and what he is. Mr. David Proctor is a new dramatic star, and will be seen here at the Metropolitan Wednesday, July 4, in the comedy, "A Message From Mars." It does not re quire the scientific wisdom of an as tronomer to point out the humor of the comedy, "A Message from Mars," al though the chief text of the play re lates to a visit by an inhabitant of the planet Mars to the earth.

There is a great deal in the papers lately of the manner in w'hich town people adulterate. A town man who buys hogs says that farmers always stuff their hogs with buttermilk be fore selling them.
