SONG FROM WILE LAND For the purpose of determining pres ent business conditions of the country at large and to ascertain the views of business men as to the outlook for con tinued proserity the Dry Goods Econ omist of New York recently sent pos tal cards to more than three thousand of its retail subscribers in the various states with the following questions: "What are the crop conditions in your section? How are the farmers fixed financially? How is labor em ployed in your city and vicinity- Is there anything in sight that tends to strengthen or weaken your belief in the continuance of prosperity, and how do your fall purchases compare with those of a year ago?" Summarizing the replies, the Econ omist says "Of all the large number of replies received, not more than one per cent is other than optimistic, and the views of nearly every merchant who is In clined to regard the outlook as gloomy are based, not upon actual conditions, but on some obviously fanciful or sen timental ground, or are apparently due to some characteristic inherent in the writer's composition. "Taking the country by section, these conditions are shown: In the North Atlantic states, unusual pros perity prevails. Industrial conditions are excellent labor is not only fun employed at high wages, but operatives are scarce. In New England the ex tlle mills could employ more hands if they were to be had. The mines of Pennsylvania are in full operation, or nearly so, crop conditions are favor able and farmers are described as financially 'well fixed'. "In the South Atlantic states the farmers are in better condition finan cially than at any time sinve the civil war. The cotton growing sections re port considerable damage to plants trough continuous rains, but other crops have fared better. The cotton manufacturing industry is in excellent shape and the miners of Virginia and West Virginia are full yemployed. The chief problem in this section is the scarcity of labor both industrial and agricultural. The farmers have all enjoyed two years of bountiful crops, with high prices. "Throughout the north central states enormous crops are indicated. The only adverse report is from a limited section of Missouri, where drouth has prevailed. The farmers are wealthy, numbers of mortgages have been paid off and vast sums will evidently be distributed this fall and winter throughout this populous divison. The industrial conditions are equally prosperous e'xcept that there is a scarcity of labor. The present situa tion is excellent and the outlook for continued good times seems assured. "In the western states farmers and cattle raisers are exceptionally pros perous, but labor Is scare and wages very high." If we are compelled to work in heaven we hope we will at least be granted a change of occupation we don't like reporting. The lines represented here are in daily use in thousands of American homes.

Third St., Grand Forks, North Dakota HUNT IN MINNESOTA. Mrs. Alice Longworth Said to Hare Accepted Invitation. Rumor has it that Mrs. Nicholas I^ongworth, the president's daughter, is to be "in our midst" some time be fore the holidays. It is understood that she is to chaperone a party of Eastern young people on a deer-stalking excursion in this neck of the woods. Just how soon Mrs. Longworth and her party are coming cannot be said, but that she is coming, several per sons who claim to be in the know told a reporter in Duluth in confidence. They cautioned him not to say who told them, but they saw a telegram re ceived by John C. Greenway, the Oli ver Mining company's superintendent on the Western Mesaba range, from Alice Roosevelt Longworth, and to the effect that she and some friends would gladly accept his invitation to hunt eder in Minnesota some time this year. Mr. Greenway is a warm personal friend of '.he president, and he has repeatedly extended invitations to President Roosevelt and all the mem bers of his faily to be his guests at hunting parties in the Minnesota woods. Possibly it is the intention of Mrs. Longworth and her party to extermin ate the bears which are known to be so thick in this part of the United States, history having told us that the Roosevelt family /Is sure death to bruins. The reports of the coming of Mrs. Longworth do not indue mention of her husband, who Is busy with a poli tical campaign this fall. And in that campaign Mrs. Longworth is to have no part, if the reports that Congress man Longworth would not allow his wife to appear in the limelight of politics, even to help his chances, may be believed. Coleraine and Bovey are quite stir red up over the reports of the coming of the president's daughter.—Duluth Herald. FORGETFUL TOURISTS. Awoctatcd Press Cable to The Bfealki Times. Luverne, Switzerland, Sept. 20.— Those who have visited "lovely Lu cerne" at the height of the holiday season will hardly be surprised to learn that every year, in Swiss hotels alone, articles to the value of $25,000 are left behind by forgetful visitors In a hurry. Swiss railways derive an equally handsome profit from the sale of objects forgotten by travellers and never claimed. Some extraordinary cases of for getfulness are recorded this season. An Englishman had taken a room at a Zematt hotel and deposited his bag gage there, but coming back from a walk he could not remember the name nor the location of his hotel, and had to seek the aid of the police. At a Zurich hotel bank notes to the value of several hundred dollars were left behind some weeks ago, and no one has yet come forward to claim them. At Geneva a hotel keeper recently re stored a jewel casket to an American woman who was under the impression that she had left it on a train. A German pater familias. with offspring numbering eight, accidentally left one of his children behind at Lausanne without noticing its absence until he had reached his home. CITY OWNS A CAB LINE.

You owe it to yourself to have the best. Our ^oods are selected from among those lines a a a re a in Highest World, Obtain* SHE CHARGES THE "MATRIMONIAL GAME New York, Sept. 20.—Somewhat varying the monotony of a Mrs. Ver rault, or a "count," or a "baron," or a plain "gentleman," of this city on mat rimony bent—along with the cash came the story told before Judge Ro salslcy. It related to a countryman from some place way back In Penn sylvania, who is alleged to have swind led a city woman out of $1,000 by the same sort of alluring advertisement. Violets, though not a "Violet Bride," play a part here. The defendant is Ernest Paul, com placent and forty, who says he Is a hotel keeper of Millville, Pa. The complainant is Rosa Keirser, 35 and indignant, and fearful lest she lose her position as seamstress in a rich Fifth avenue family. In her statement Miss Keirser said in last April she saw an advertisement in a New York paper saying an owner of a hotel in Pennsylvania desired a housekeeper, "intentions matrimony." She answered the advertisement, and received a letter in a few days asking her to meet the writer at the Grand Central station. New York. The letter said both were to wear violets, so they might recognize each other. He Wanted $1,000. She met the man, who said he was Ernest Paul and that he had a hotel in Millville, Pa. Miss Keirser said she met Paul several times, and a few weeks after they first met Paul told her he Intended to lease a hotel in Fortieth street, this city, for $20,000. At the next meeting Paul proposed marriage to her. and said she could take charge of the hotel in this city and he would devote his time to look ing after his other interests. In May Miss Keirser met Paul again. He said he needed $1,000 to close an option on the Fortieth street hotel. He said his affairs were in such a condi tion that he could not get the ready cash. Miss Keirser said she drew the $1,000 from a saving fund where she operation for some time today mark ed the formal inauguration of the enterprise. It was made the occa sion for a public demonstration, for the reason that the pepple own the railway system. It is the first prac tical test of municipal ownership of street railways anywhere In the Unit ed States and as a consequence the success of the enterprise will be watched with close attention. Two years ago, following the suc cess of the city's move in taking over the water and lighting plants, Mayor Forsythe and a delegation of citi zens went before the state legislature and had the city's charter changed so as to permit it to operate and own a street railway system. The system just completed is first-class in its equipment and compares favorably with the street railways in other cit ies of the same size. In connection with the railway line the city has purchased for $40,000 a tract of 130 acres for use as a public park and fair ground. Frequently. "Money talks," said the aggressive person. "Yes," answered the sarcastic man, "but sometimes it says things it ought to be ashamed of."—Washington Star. ARE THE BEST 4 N Embody All the Virtues of the ARTISrS ~f ivvf •-i-'. Continuing her statement. Miss Keir ser said that on the same night, after giving Paul the money, she received a telegram from him stating that his hotel in Millville was on fire. The next morning, she says, she received another message from Paul stating that the hotel had been burned to the ground, and that It would be several weeks before he could get to New York again. She also said that Paul had promised to send her a judgment note for $1,000, but she never heard from him after she received the telegram stating that the hotel had been burned down. Woman Used as Decoy. In the latter part of June Miss Keir ser went to the West Twenty-second street police station and told her story and said she had been swindled. De tectives Herzing and Schmacke were put on the case to investigate. They, watched the papers for a week or more and at last found an advertisement similar to the one Miss Keirser had answered. They wrote a decoy letter in English, but received no answer. A week afterward they wrote an other letter in German and received a letter signed "E. Paul," and making the same statements as those in the first letter received by Miss Keirser. They say that Paul asked to meet the recipient of the letter at the Grand Central station, and both were to wear violets as a means of identification. The detectives sent a woman to meet Paul and arrested him there a few moments after he had niet the woman sent to lure him on. When arrested the detectives testified, Paul had in his pockets twenty letters from women, all in answer to his advertisements. Assistant District Attorney John Hart said that Paul has been indicted in Pennsylvania for swindling the Wllkes-Barre Brewing company out of $5,000. RAILROAD NOTES.

He left her. and said he would return to Millville that night. &> One hundred thousand dollars Is the approximate amount which the Great Northern railway company will have to pay in adjusting the claims of wid ows and next of kin for the ten human lives lost in the train wrecks at Cam den, Wash., and Beaver, B. C,. in July. The only likelihood of a suit in court Is that by the relatives of N. Edward Munson, engineer of the fast mail, which was wrecked near Camden. The officials of the road declare he was negligent in maintaining a high rate of speed and on that account it is sought to reduce the claim of the family to a minimum, but the family Is holding out for $10,000. Families of I. M. Cornthwaite and T. J. Dol bow, both of Spokane, each settled with the company for $15,000, while others ranged from $7,500 to $10,000. Professor Grimstad, of Colvllle, Wash, declined to make a claim for damages, declaring he was not injured. The convolutions of a man's brain resemble the meat of an English wal nut—and that's why we say a man's "nutty."
