Eugene Frazier Examined By
Board of Insanity Com
Eugene Frazier is a very agreeable
sort of a fellow. At least that is the
opinion one would form after listening
to his testimony before the board of
insanity commissioners this morning
at the courthouse.
He was willing to admit that he
might or might not have been crazy,
apparently did not matter much to
him. He agreed with the examining
board, however, that something must
have been wrong with his head when
he attempted emasculation on Sunday
last, but stated to the board this morn
ing when the inquiry as to his mental
condition was held, that he felt much
better and clearer today.
After listening to the evidence on
the part of two or three witnesses,
the board decided to confine Frazier
a few days in the county jail, pending
developments, and the healing of his

Either foot ball fans will have to go

the estimation of many citizens, should

must have an athletic park or else lose

Live Stock Editor Talks
About The Fair
L. H. Storgaard, live stock manager
of the Dakota Farmer, and one of the
leading stock men of the nation, is a
visitor at the fair. To The Evening
Times he stated that the exhibits of
live stock at this fair was among the
very best if not the very best he had
so far seen. Asked as to the possibilities
of the development of the blooded
stock business in this state, he said:
"It is only necessary to look at the
cattle, hogs, horses and sheep on ex
hibition here to answer the question
in the affirmative. Certainly North
Dakota will be a fine stock state—in
fact it is that just now. Look at those
magnificent herds of white faces in
the cattle barns and see for yourself
that the finest beef in the world can
be raised right on the farms of this
state. As for the milkers, there are
two classes on exhibition here which
actually took my breath away, they
were so much beyond my expectations.
"Those dual purpose cattle can not be
beaten in the United States. But say,
to describe the good stock at this fair
would be to tell you something about
every animal. There is not an animal
on exhibition here but what the own
er can be proud of. Well, I was going
to quit talking to you but I do want to
call your attention to the grade cat
tle that can be seen here. You know I
am in favor of pure breds, but every
man is not so situated that he can go
into that business at once, and there
is nothing left for him to do but to
begin grading. There is a strong ar
gument in favor of the success of that
course in the graded herds which are
on exhibition here. They prove that
the work can be successfully done and
without heavy cost."
AFRAID OF SNAKES.
Den of Reptiles at Show Grounds
Breaks Up a Happy Home.
A big burly colored man, according
to "Rastus" Stocks, one of the rousta
bouts at the fair grounds, is respon
sible for the disruption of his peace
ful home. Rastus is one of the fol
lowers of the races and is employed
by one of the owners of a string now
competing at the exposition.
This morning the unhappy darky
was bewailing his sad career when ap
proached by a representative of the
Evening Times and asked the cause
of his distress. Rastus promptly in
formed him that his wife, until re
cently employed as a southern music
dispenser at one of the shows, had
"gawn away down sout wld another
bloke.'' It seems that the woman was
of a very superstitious turn of mind,
was always imagining she could see
snakes and other poisonious reptiles
crawling in the grass. Rastus to
make her worse, whispered little fairy
tales Into her ears about certain rep
tiles escaping from Dora's den, and
had his wifey in a very imaginative
mood when early this morning he
sprung the masterpiece of his mind's
creation. With wide open eyes he vow
ed that every snake belonging to the
show had escaped from the den and
workmen in the stock barns this
morning had discovered them busily
engaged in milking the cows. No
kicks from the bovines, he said, could
drive them away, and at that very
moment the officials were endeavoring
to exterminate the escaped reptiles.
Next door neighbors on the Midway
assert that the shrieks of the poor
frightened negress could be heard for
blocks, and that finally gathering up
her scanty belongings, she hurried in
search of another "culled gem'n" with
whom she had become very friendly,
and hurriedly left for town.
Rastus has not seen a sign of her
all day and claims that he had a hunch
several days ago that quite friendly
relations existed between the depart

way Center—Extension of
the Hill System.
International Falls is about to be
reached by a fourth railroad, the Mib

preparing to build to the place as fast
as circumstances will permit.
