A college is measured by the char acters which it develops in the men and women which receive their train ing in its halls. There is a mistaken idea that education, especially of the higher class, consists in mental power alone. This is not correct. It is true that the difference between the edu cated and the uneducated is that the former having cultivated the mental taste for that which is grand and beautiful in the universe, finds his pleasures and delights in the things which constitute the wisdom and learning of the iiges while the un educated, with his mental horizon lim ited to the few things he has gathered by contact with them, and not know ing the great fields which lie beyond the scope of his vision, finds his in the sordid things of life which appeal to his fancy only. The former enjoys the things which appeal to the noblest sentiments of the soul while the lat ter delights only in those which please his fancy. This, however, is merely the result of education. The work of the higher institutions of learning is to instill into the stu dent that great (indefinable something which gives to men the power to rise to the very highest demands made up on them and to become leaders among their fellows. It is the development of the highest principles of manhood with all their refining and elevating in fluences. Men may have intellectual education without this, but they are not educated. And herein lies the great power of the North Dakota university. A col lege without the men who make it is only a name.

OI IMVEKSITY'S WORK. The university will open its doors in a few days for another scholastic year. At that time there will assemble several hundred young men and wo men of the state to be trained for the higher duties of life. It will not only mean much to the young people them selves but to the future of the state. The work of the university does not effect only the people who are edu acted within its walls but through their influence it effects the genera tions which follow them. Should that influence be uplifting, ennobling and inspiring the work of the institution will have not been in vain.

It is from them that the student body draws its inspiration which car ries them upward to the highest planes of civilization, for civilization is mere ly the advance from the untutored savage to the point where mind is superior to appetite. Great as is the requirement of the age the university of this state is fully able to meet it. The men who form the life springs of the institution are the peers of any in the land. They are loyal and devoted to their work, and those who come under their in fluence gather a spirit of earnestness and application which can not but make them successful in whatever work they may undertake. More than this, they become imbued with the spirit which combines the mental pow er with that higher one of the soul and enables them to become masters in their chosen walks of life. MAKING THE CRIMINALS WORK. The sentiment of ridding the state of the lawless element which infests so many of the counties is gaining ground so rapidly that it seems possi ble some concerted action will be taken to accomplish this end. In a number of the towns the cry is to run the criminals out. This is good for the immediate locality, but it does not reach the vital spot in ridding the state. It merely shifts the burden to some other community—some other town or county. Being infested with this lawless ele ment is unfortunately a condition from which the northwest must suffer for several years—until the farmers devise some means of harvesting and threshing their crops without relying so much on imported labor. For it is simply impossible to separate the worthy from the worthless before the test is made in the harvest fields. And even then it is no easy task for the worst criminals often appear as work men for the purpose of locating the best places for the operation of their criminal plans. A rigid vagrancy law would have reaching the undesirable class. It could be so constructed that when an individual was found without visible means of support and refused to work when an opportunity was offered, he could be arrested as a vagrant and compelled to work on the public roads or on the streets of the city as would be determined by the place where he was arrested. This would serve two purposes. It would give some return to the tax payers for the money they are com pelled to pay out in preventing the commission of crimes by these people and in punishing them after the crimes have been committed, and it would make the state so obnoxious to that class of people that they would shun it as an Irishman would a snake. The thugs and villains who infest the northwest during the harvest and threshing season deserve no mercy and no consideration. They are here to take life if need be to accomplish their dastardly ends. They have placed themselves outside the pale of mercy, and the only treatment which would have any effect upon them is that of criminal punishment. They would stab their benefactor with as little compunction of conscience as they would their bitterest enemy. They have done it in a number of instances within the last few weeks. The time to catch them is before they commit the crimes. The experi ence of Valley City shows that even when the most heinous crimes have been committed it is almost an im possibility to catch the culprit. A vagrancy law would reach them al most so soon as they landed. It would permit those who were here for honest and honorable purposes to secure work without being molested, but those who came to prosper by the commis sion of crime would be rounded up and made to pay the penalty by doing work on public enterprises. Ot It KOM)ED WAREHOUSES. The business interests of the United States are moving the boundary lines a few miles further toward the pole each year. This is done not by revo lution and the abolition of the political powers of the dominion court but by applying some of our energetic busi ness principles to the conditions across the line. At nearly every one of the towns in close proximity on the south to the Canadian line have been established bonded warehouses for the handling of Canadian wheat in bond. The plan is one which shows the advantages of our American methods. The houses do not store the grain but merely transfer it from the wagons in which it is brought across the line to the cars which are loaded and sealed so that they cannot become mixed with American grain. Bonds are entered into that the grain will be carried through the country and sent back into Canada at some eastern point, there to be shipped as a Canadian export. The plan must not be confused with that of the Minneapolis millers who se cured the wheat under bond and in stead of merely carrying it through the country, stopped it en route and manufactured it into flour, much of which probably found its way into the home market and took the place of so much of the products of our own farms. The bonded wheat has no effect up on the market of the home crop as it is merely handled on this side of the line and carried over the railroads in the United States rather than in Canada. The buyers receive the profit in handling it and the railroads the profit of transportation. It thus in creases our business without becoming a competitor in our market. If the people across the border were alive to their business interests they would arrange for the handling of the crop on that side of the line. But in that as in banking they find it much to their advantage to become so to speak American citizens for the time being. The building of the branch lines to the international boundary and in a number of instances parallel ing it. and the establishment of towns almost on the line was a far better business proposition to the railroad and business interests than would ap pear at first glance. GROWING FRUIT AT HOME. It is slowly dawning on tue people of North Dakota that they can, by a little care and industry, have many of the fruit luxuries which are so much appreciated and which have not been obtainable because of the supposed rigors of the climate. Among these are fruits of various kinds which have been regarded large ly as luxuries by our people because they must be obtained from abroad. The success which is attending the growth of apples in different portions of the state proves that with care and the proper attention to the adaptation of the tree to the climatic conditions this luscious fruit can be produced in abundance for local consumption. When efforts were first made to grow peaches in Georgie numberless fail ures were the result. The trees were killed by the scorching sun, and it was said this fruit could never be produced in that climate. An old German, whose name has not been recorded very elaborately on the pages of history, planted a small orchard and, before the production of fruit began tn tax the vitality of the trees, so trimmed them that their own sSade protected them from the sun's rays. His trees grew and bore aboundant fruit, and the trouble which former growers had experienced was solved. The Method became universal and today it is an easy matter to stand on the ground and pick the entire crop from the trees of an orchard covering a thousand acres There was nothing in the plan of the German except protection against climatic conditions. The same is true of fruit-growing in this state. The traes need acclimation. It is abtur-J tr attempt to plant the nursery st^cl from the warmer climates and expect it to withstand our winters. The trees be grown in a climate a3 cold as our own and they will, by the peculiar laws or nature, adapt them selves to their climatic environment. Once the trees are made hardy by this process of acclimation it becomes an .sy matter to protect them from the ravages of our winters, the pun oiple danger being from the heat of the summer, and with proper trimming —which has been adopted by some of the pioneer growers of the state—-thefte is no reason why there should not be an orchard on every farm sufficient to produce the fruit needed by the family. Soil capable of producing such wonderful timber growth as that of North Dakota should be fully capable of producing a fruit tree with sufficient vitality to yield a handsome crop, and our long days of sunshine should be sufficient to produce fruit which would be the peer of any grown out side the specially adapted regions. Moreover it would supply the only thing actually needed to make this the greatest home state in the union— where the golden opportunities of rapid wealth would be blended with the exquisite pleasures of life's delicacies and luxuries. l'UIJJNG TOGETHER. The Evening Times has repeatedly pointed out the advantages to this city in having a few enterprises located here which would employ a large num ber of men who would not necessarily be dependent upon the result, of the crops for the money they earn. This THE EVENING TIMES, GRAND FORKS, N. D. need was never more clearly demon strated than at the present time when the Bmall crop yields must curtail the volume of business for this section of country. It need not be understood that the crops are a failure, for they are not. But the average yield will be much below what it might have been, and the difference in the two will indicate the difference in business. The prosperity of any city depends upon the amount of business which is done. This of course includes the merchants, both wholesale and retail, the bankers and all the allied lines of the two. It. is a trite observation that when there are large quantities of goods passing over the counters of the merchants there is prosperity in the community. If Grand Forks had a few industries employing a thousand men the busi ness which they would bring to the city would offset any depression caused by the crop shortage and give the community two sources of pros perity instead of one. There is but one way to secure these community industries and that is to go out and get them. The loca tion of new enterprises is largely a matter of effort on the part of the cit ies which secure them. True, some of them are located with reference to the raw material used and shipping facilities for the finished product. But the vast majority of them are located because the cities securing them have offered some inducements and made sufficient efforts to secure them to show their interest in the enterprise. That is just what must be done in this city if anything of the kind is ever secured. There must be a united ef fort of the people to the desired end. When the Herald feels itself called upon to explain its failure to support the republican ticket—and this failure happens about every two years—it be gins by repeating some threadbare falsehoods about how Senator Hans brough or some other prominent party leader bolted the regular ticket. The Herald's explanations are invariably predicated upon the plea that some body else did the same thing. It was so when Winship was caught looting the state treasury through the process of the printing combine contract— somebody else had done it why there fore was it wrong for him to do it? It is now stated that in order to se cure peace President Palma will re sign. That gives some color to the claim of the insurgent leaders that he secured his election by unfair means. It may be good peace policy to use such methods in securing what is practically political harmony, but it will certainly encourage similar uprisings whenever any considerable number of the restless population of Cuba becomes dissatisfied with the re sult of a popular election. The Spaniards are in all probability having a hearty laugh over the Cuban situation and imagining the trouble this country will have in crushing the rebellion. But there is a decided dif ference between Spain and the United States. The latter can accomplish more with a frown than the former could with all her armies. The crop has been gathered with less damage from the rain this year than has been the case for several years. It has offset to a large extent the injury to the wheat by the hot winds, the grade not being lowered since the grain went into the shock. The president is now engaged in bigger enterprises than spelling re forms, but it is doubtful if the Cuban rebellion is much more serious than the grasping of the phonetic spelling by the fellows who learned under the old master, Noah Webster. And now the Minneapolis Journal, whose opinion on the subject is cop ied approvingly by the Herald, is dis satisfied with the primary law. Is there anything that will please the Journal and its echo the Herald? As time passes it becomes more ap parent that the democratic cause in this state is failing woefully to arouse any very notable enthusiasm. The Telephone In Cactus Center.

Unless all signs fail, one of the greatest problems of the age has been solved, that is, what will be the build ing material of the future. The ans wer is cement. But for cement many large building operations would now be at standstill, for wood has become too expensive to be used in house construction, and the enforced waits for all kinds of structural steel virtually eliminates that material where quick work is de sired. Almost everything can be done with cement, and with incredible swiftness and cheapness of price. The new pro cess, the mixing of cement, sand and gravel with cinders or broken stone, flooded with water from a hose, is be ing used to build houses, raise giant hotels, build the piers and bridges for railroads, erect barns, lay sidewalks, fix a girder or fashion a chimney way. if preferred, they can be frescoed or otherwise decorated. Building such a house does not re quire much expert labor. The army of metal workers, bricklayers, carpen ters and other artisans required in wood or steel construction, is almost completely done away with on a cem ent building. All that is needed is an expert to superintend the mixing of the cement and a carpenter and staff to construct the molds or frame work Into which the soft cement is poured. Once a cement house is finished the work is done, and done to stay, according to all natural laws. In a century the building ought to be in as good shape as ever. There is nothing to rot or fall Into need of repairs. The building does not have to be paint ed yearly as in the case of wood, or gone over for rust as in the case of steel. The foundations and pillars never need replacing, because they have rot- PLANT OP THE PEMBINA PORTLAND CEMENT COMPANY.

They wanted a structure four hundred feet long, 125 feet wide and 164 feet high. It was to be elaborate, and to have a capacity for 1,200 guests. Bids were asked for a steel building, and not only were the prices lofty, but the delay In getting the girders and other structur al parts made it a certainty that a couple of years must pass before the new hotel could be ready for guests. In this predicament the proprietors had recourse to the new process of reinforced cement. In eight months and three days, without the loss of a life, the new hotel was completed. It is a work of genuine architectural beauty, the pride of the Clty-by-the Sea, and as great an expert as Thomas Alva Edison, after going over the en tire structure from cellar to the Moor ish dome, said that it was the first perfect building he had ever seen, and that it was built of a material destined to be the great staple of the future. The concrete building solves the question of fire insurance. The un derwriters who examined Atlantic City's new model hotel were so well pleased that they made a price three per cent lower than for other hotels of the same class. The farmer or suburbanite, who con templates building, a home, always looks at the fire question thoughtfully, for in outlying districts there is little facility for fighting flames, and once they get hold, an inflammable building is likely to be destroyed. But a home built of cement cannot burn, for the reason that there is nothing to be consumed, except the interior furnish ing, and enough insurance to cover the cost of these decorations and fur nishings is really about all that is needed in such cases. ted. Wooden porch posts are always rotting. While the building of low-priced concrte houses is still in its infancy, the farmer has been so impressed with the idea that he is extending it to his barns and out buildings, and finding that it works admirably. If more than one concrete building is put up by the farmer, he can use his same wooden worms over and over again, and if there is a stone crusher in the neighborhood he can utilize in making his concrete the old stone walls of the neighborhood, or the thousands of stones that are constant ly being impelled to the surface of the choicest pasture land. Building by concrete does away with many of the city's noises. The ter rific pounding on steel girders that marks the erection of a metal build ing is entirely absent when concrete is used. In fact one apartment of a hotel has been occupied with complete absence of any discomfort to the guests while new walls of concrete were be ing put up within a few feet. Railroad* Adopting Oneii* The big railroads are all adopting the cement bridge. It is cheaper, more enduring, more quickly erected, and it releases the builders from slavery to the steel mills. The tremendous boom in cement building is shown by the difference in the output of cement now and eight years ago. In 1897, this country produced about a million and a half barrels. Last year this had grown to twenty-six and a half mil lion, and the total for 906 will ex ceed even this great amount. Fortunately the supply is virtually unlimited. The Lehigh Valley region in Pennsylvania alone can turn out twenty million barrels a year indefin itely. Illustration of how cement Is used in construction work. Cement was found in this country as early as 1850, and was first used by the Lehigh Valley Coal and Naviga tion company. The great Pennsylvania cement belt extends from Fogelsville, Lower Mac ungle, to the Lehigh Valley river at Caplay. It runs in a northeasterly di rection, and is the same belt that later crops out in New Jersey. One com pany alone employs an army of some 21,000 men in connection with the manufacture of its cement. There are five prominent companies, and their investment is constantly being in creased, for the demand for cement has forced them to erect new mills, and to install new machinery, whose' value combined would run Into the millions. As in blast furnaces, tne chemist is the most important factor, so in the manufacture of Portland cement the chemists employed in these mills represent the topnotchers In their profession.

There is much of the romantic in the discovery and development of the cement region in this country as well as in Northampton. Farmers who for years had succeeded In making only a bare living from the stubborn soil suddenly found themselves rich beyond: the wildest flights of their imagina tion. Barren, rocky soil, on which the wild carrot, the goldenrod and the Russian thistle were always the most bounteous harvests, and where the tiller of the soil often damned the' rock which was yet to prove his for tune, sold for hundreds of dollars per' acre. One afrmer sold his iand for $100, 000, and, placing no 'rust in men or banks, made them give him the money in cash. D. O. Saylor was the pioneer of the. cement industry In Pennsylvania, and' the mill in which he made the first Portland cement is stilt standing. The average price for good cement rock is about $300 an acre, but the soil that has limestone in it is virtually worth almost any money. It even pans out to beat gold, for a good acre of limestone land will pan out for its: owner, $70 or $80 per day. An en ormous amount of limestone rock is brought into the cement belt from Sunville, Lebanon county, Pennsyl vania. Once the rock is taken out of the earth everything in. the manufacture of cement is done automatically. Ma chinery carries it to the roaBters from the roasters it is carried to the crushers from the crushers it goes to the stockhouse, and from there to the sacks or barrels without having been touched by the workmen. Nine Owned by Forlu People. In this state the cement industry is just in its infancy, though several plants have been in operation in the state for several years. Only recently by the purchasing of the Portland mines in the northern part of the state by Grand Forks parties, however,, has the work been pushed or has the largest mine been able to supply the orders. In the mine under discussion,, new machinery of all classes has been installed and for the first time the industry is paying good dividends. Amusements Parsifal in English. One of Richard Wagner's biogra ers epitomizes the life of that great genius in the following manner: "Few artists have had such an eventful life. He pursued his end from town to town and from country to country. Today, a musical conductor in a provincial slough tomorrow, at the point ot destitution in the great city of Paris. Today, a court official of the king of Saxony, tomorrow a fugitive in a strange country with a warrant of ar rest against him today without a single ray of hope, but one step from death in sheed despair tomorrow the declared friend and protege of a mighty monarch today, buried in thfi deepest solitude of the Alps, fleelng from the world and living for his art alone tomorrow, the builder of the Baireuth Festival House, receiving emperors and kings as his guests and surrounded by enthusiastic multi tudes assembled from every part of the world. Wagner's life in itself was an exciting drama not a year passed that was not full of interesting events. And such indeed, in brief, might his life be told, graphically and without exag geration.
