Sayi FALL SUIT REMARKS The Suits of the Season sug gest stateliness rather than baggy fullness. Tak«» the coat for instance— though the shoulders are broad, the lines concave towards the waist, then flare out into*long skirts, forming what is called the French Back. Some of these suits have cen ter vents with creased side seams. The new big lapels tend to give the impression of abroad chest. A noticeable feature of this long coat is the fact that it lends itsef equally well to Short or Tall Men. THERE'S ALONG PRICE RANGE $20 $22 A THRB TRMH TORUN TO BRMHIOH Towns on (lie St. Johns Branch Will Soon be on (he Main Line. The St. John branch ol' the Great Northern railway will be a branch no longer after the 15th of October. On or before that date the tracklayers will reach Brandon, after laying about sixty miles of heavy rails on one of the best grades ever made In the northwest. The steel has been laid to' within 13 miles of Boissevain. The tracklay ers were working with a short crew and were laying only one mile a day, but laborers were coming in rapidly from the harvest fields and the outfit would soon be doing its regular capa city of two miles per day. The grade is completed and that it is a very substantial grade, being near ly wide enough for double tracking. The bridges and culverts are also com pleted, the most important of which is the Souris river bridge, which is nearly 100 feet high and a magnificent structure. The Great Northern's right-of-way into Brandon cost the system 9500,000. Twenty-seven blocks were purchased and the buildings either razed or moved away. Elevators and water tanks have been erected on the town sites along the line, but there are no depots as yet. The steel that is being laid is as heavy as on the other main lines, and the track of the old St Johns branch will be taken up next year and re placed with the heavier rails. On the Aneta extension, track-laying is now in ful swing on a completed grade. INDIANSUWHERJI THIS VICIHITT Balmy Air and Higher Temperature Make Life Worth Living. The autumn of the year 1906 has po far been extremely notable, not only from the fact that general pros perity has abounded, but because of the almost perfect weather that has predominated. The greater part of the time, but it has been so moderate that as yet it has been entirely un necessary to pull out the winter overcoats and garments which are usually in vogue at this time of the year. It is Indian summer. The frost this year has been later in coming than for many years. In years before, although there have been no killing frosts much before the first of October, the records show that there hav always been light frosts in the last part of August and the first part of September. Last year a light frost visited this district the last part of August, and many cold spells were felt about that time. The furnace fires were well under way by the mid dle of September, and in most cases were not allowed to go out until late in the spring. It is not expected by weather ex perts that there will be a heavy frost around Grand Forks for some time to come. LOOKED LIKE ATTEMPTED MURDER Lndwig Warwick Rushing Down (he Street Streaming With Blood, Causes Apprehension. With blood streaming down his face and neck Ludwig Warwick rushed in to the Deaconess hospital at 12:50 to day and called for a doctor. Dr. Eng stad happened in just at this time and the man was taken in charge and his injuries properly dressed. The man had a horrible gash in the back of his head and a bump on the top, and after repeated inquiries it was found out that he had fallen off a bicycle on South Third street, the cuts being inflicted by a saw and sev eral other tools which he carried in his hands. Mr. Warwick is a car penter living at 620 Seventh avenue and was on his way to work on the Edwards residence when the accident happened. The cuts are not serious but are sufficient to lay the man up for several days. People who saw the injured man rushing down the Btreet leaving a dark red trail behind were convinced that a hold-up or attempted murder had taken place.

The only complaint against the management of the St. Bernard fair is that so much splendid food was served In such elegant style that a number of patrons over-Indulged their appetites.

One visitor who had dined a number of times at the fair, tersely put the matter when he said that she as chief waiter could actu ally anticipate the wants of the guests and that it was not necessary to order what was wanted as she could seem ingly tell without an order, and that someone was ready to serve the guest the moment he desired anything.

The hoodoo engine No. 227 which was in the fatal Dower Lake several years ago and on which Engineer Nason met death at Detroit, had trouble again last week. Tom Hook er, who has seen about as much ac tive running as any engineer on the Northern Pacific, and who has had narrow escapes, was on No. 227 wheu she broke her main pin and smash ed herself up last week on the run from Little Palls to St. Paul. The main pin of the engine con tained a flaw, probably the result of some former wreck. When the main pin broke things went wrong in gen eral. The side rods were bent and twisted, the running board was torn off and the cab smashed. The fireman George Conley, jumped, striking a pile of ties and breaking several ribs, whild being otherwise hurt. He may die. Engineer Hooker staid by the engine and escaped unhurt. HUNTEB IS MISSING. Youngest Boy of Frank Smith of Wil listen Goes Hunting and Does Not Return. The youngest son of Frank Smith of Williston went out hunting Sunday near tHe farm at Marmon and has not been heard of since. The boy's brother went to a coal mine for a lead ol' coal and the younger brother took his gun and went to the creek to hunt. There area couple of shallow sloughs near the creek where he expected to hunt as well as on the creek. Sunday night when it got dark and the br.y did not show up, the family became uneasy and started out to hunt for him. He was not found and Monday a hunting party went cut. Monday af ternoon word wa6 brought in to his father and he hired a rig and drove out. A late report of Prank Smith's miss ing boy is to the effect that the boy's brother had traced him as far as Sprlngbr^ok. You don't know the news, all of it, unless you read the ads. THE EVENING TIMES, GRAND FORKS, N. D. EXPERTS GIVE ^ARMERS WMWHIG Government Experts Find Seedsmen Adulterating Clover and Alfalfa. In these days of adulterated food stuffs and the restrictions that are bj Ing made by the local and national government for the protection of the consumers, the United States depart ment of agriculture has discovered that unscrupulous seedsmen are at tempting to adulterate the forage seeds that they are sending out to farmer purchasers from all over the country. Particularly is this true of the ship ments of red clover grass and alfalfa seeds. To the end of protecting the farmers and the innocent middlemen rrom this latest imposition the department of agriculture is making an active cam paign in the interest of the forage crop growers against the practice of putting out adulterated seeds. Although the cultivation of alfaira has not yet started on any large scale in North Dakota, there are a number of farmers in adjoining counties who have signified their intention of ex perimenting with the forage crop in tho Northern soil. The department has been conducting somo investigations simultaneously over many different portions of the United States and it has been found that the operations ol' the seedsmen in adulterating alfalfa seed are not confined to one or two but to all sec tions, even the Northwest where alfal fa raising is yet in its infancy. The method pursued by the govern ment has been for its agents to pro cure samples of the alfalfa grass and clover seeds in the open market, test the same and if any are found to be adulterated or misbranded, or any seeds or Canada blue grass are ob tained, to publish the tests together with the names of the persons by whom the seeds were offered for sale. Over 353 samples of seeds were tested and of these fully 160 or nearly one-halt' were found to contain seed of the destructive parasitic plant dodder. Nine samples were found to contain seed of the yellow terfoil and nine samples were adulterated with burr clover. Yellow Trefoil, the gevernment ex perts explain, is not used to any ex tent as a forage plant in the Unitel States, but the seed is imported from Europe at about 5 cents per pound for use as an adulterant or red clover and alfalfa seed.. Although burr clover is cultivated in the Gulf states, the seed found mixed with alfalfa is not the commercial burr clover seed of this country, but a by-product se cured in the cleaning South American wool, and is imported from Germany in low-grade alfalfa seed. Farmers in every part of the coun try are warned by the department to be on the lookout for adulterated red clover and alfalfa seed. The United States department of agriculture, in order to protect the seedsmen as well as the farmers, offers to examine and report promptly as to the presence of adulterants and dodder in any samples of seeds that may be submitted for that purpose. The samples may be sen to the bureau of plant industry, United States department of agricul ture. The department will also furnish at request the names of those seedsmen who sell adulterated clover and alfalfa seeds. The list already prepared con tains the names of firms in Milwaukee, Wis. Fremont, Neb. Davenport, Iowa Detroit, Mich.: Toledo, Ohio: Indianapolis. Ind. Providence. R. I., and Worcester, Mass. MRS. R. N. ARCHER PISSES AWAY This Morning Occurred the Demise of One of the I'ioneer Residents of the County. Shortly before the hour of dawr, this morning, at the home of her son in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. H. E. Paine, of 507 South Fifth street, following a lingering illness of a year or more, occurred the death of Mrs. R. M. Archer, aged 65 years. Her de mise, though not altogether unexpect ed, comes nevertheless, as a sad and untoward affliction upon the surviving dear ones. The deceased was one of the pio neers of Grand Forks county, having resided at Inkster for almost thirty years. Of late, however, she and her surviving husband have been making their home in this city with Mr. and Mrs. Paine. The surviving children number, be sides Mrs. Paine, Miss Minnie Archer, instructor in the East Grand Forks high school, and Murray Archer, a druggist at Loma, N. D. The latter has been notified. The remains of tiie deceased will be taken to Inkster tomorrow morning, and in the afternoon at 2:30. from the Congregational church, will be held the final rites of burial. Rev. Williams, the pastor, will officiate. Grand Forks friends, and those elsewhere in the state will condole with the bereaved in their sorrow. MOKE NEW CORPORATIONS.

A message from Walker tells of the suicide of Thomas Haivorson, about 40 years of age. who had become de spondent on account of an incurable attack of rheumatism and paralysis. Haivorson had been ailing for some time past, and was in such a )oor condition of health that he required the services of a trained nurse at all times. From reports, it appears that Hai vorson asked tho nurse to leave the room on some small pretext, and when the latter returned, the patient was bleeding freely from several bad gashes in his throat, which he had cut with a knife lying on the table. The wotimled man never regained consciousness, and was dead a few moments after being found by the nurse.

TM RONS MUCK ONCE MORE Man Who Did Garden of Eden Stunt In Toils Again—Is Believed to Be Insane. Samuel Taylor who created a sen sation a few weeks ago by running into the city devoid of clothing and who was later found to be mildly in sane, was locked up yesterday on the same charge and will be given a hear ing before the insanity board in the near future. After he had been con fined in the county jail for a few days following his Garden of Eden stunt, he recovered and appeared to be perfectly rational. It was thought that hard work and the excessive heat, together with a probable blow on the head during a fight in which he par ticipated just before making his record-breaking run. has thrown him off his balance and that he would be all right once he was again at work. But those who employed him found that he could not keep his mind on anything for even a short time, and were compelled to let him go. He came to town last Friday and soon began acting in a peculiar manner. He was locked up and will be cared for by the officials. INDIAN WOMAN WINS SWT FOR LAND Mrs. Nellie Lydeck Wins Long Fight for Title to Cass Lake Land— Patent is Issued. A final decision in the famous "Sec tion Sixteen" case, at Cass Lake, Minn., has at last been rendered and Mrs. Nellie Lydeck secures a deed from the government for her allotment, which for many years has been a bone of contention for the people of Cass county. The Lydeck allotments adjoin the village of Cass Lake proper, and will probably become a part of the town site now, as, under the deed, Mrs. Lydeck and her children are given a patent in fee simple to dispose of their property as they please. For several years a strong fight was made to prevent the Lydeck allot ments from being confirmed. There were considerable numbers of "squat ters" who had occupied the lands prior to Mrs. Lydeck's selection and prior to the incorporation of the town of Cass Lake. These people refused to move off, claiming that section 16 belonged to the state of Minnesota for school land purposes. The supreme court held-differently, and, after along fight, Secretary Hitchcock confirmed the Lydeck allotments. I^ast winter congress passed what is known as the Burke act, whereby the secretary of the interior is author ized to issue patents or deeds to any Indian allottee who is capable of man aging his or her affairs. Mrs. Lydeck, being an educated woman and her children being students at Carlisle school, Pennsylvania, Acting Secretary Ryan decided that patents should is sue. This is the first case where ac tion has been taken under that pro vision of the Burke law. George Lydeck, who has been here for a week looking after the patents, left for the west today. He said that Mrs. Lydeck would in all cases give preference to the original occupants of the land for purchase of lots. Mr. Lydeck said that the allotment would be platted at once and improved, and lots for business and residence pur poses placed on the market. RED RIlERlEEUPPiE RAISING Wick Nursery Near East Grand Forks Had Great Success—Display at Kent Co.'s Offices. The Kent Realty and Investment company have on exhibition at their office some specimens of apples raised at the Wick nursery on the Minne sota side of the river near East Grand Forks that conclusively prove that fruit can be successfully grown in this state. The apples are well matured, beautifully colored and have a far bet ter flavor than those received from the great fruit growing regions in Oregon. They are of good size—fully as large as those sold on the markets from the choice fruit growing regions, and have one characteristic which the lat ter do not possess. They are juicy and improve with keeping. The same firm also has a sample of crab apple grown ou its farm which beats any thing of its kind grown in the south ern states. The samples are fully equal in size and color to any of the imported fruit sold in the northwest, while the flavor is so much superior that the foreign product scarcely seems like apples when compared with the product of the Red river valley. AM 1110\ IS SUSTAINED. Question of Lease of New Store Settled by Supreme Court. Judge Charles F. Amidon of the United States circuit, court has been sustained by the United States su preme court in his decision in the dis puto between the Associated Realty company and the trustees of the Evans, Johnson. Sloane company over the New Store lease. Judge Amidon decided at the May term of court in Minneapolis that the lease in question terminated Decem ber 1, 1905, and that consequently the trustees of the bankrupt firm could not list it as an asset and must pay $1,196.7$ for rent for their occupancy of the premises after the expiration or tho lease. A decision by Chief Justice Fuller of the United States supreme court, received at Minneapolis yesterday, af firms the decision. LETTER ADDRESSED TO J. EDWARD B. L. Weld, Prominent Cleve land, N. D., Stockman In Communication. EXPLAINS CONTROVERSY Status of the Engerud-Knauf Affair—Will Engerud Make Answer? Tho following communication has been received at this office from B. L. Weld of the firm of Weld & Weld, farmers and ranchers at Cleveland, X. D. It is a copy of a letter address ed to Edward Engerud, supreme court justice. In it are propounded a num ber of questions which Mr. Engerud may or may not find time to answer. The letter: Cleveland, X. D., Sept. 29, '06. To Edward Engerud, Fargo, X. D.: Dear Sir—I read in the Forum your dictated statement of your reasons for refusing to attend a session of the supreme court at Grand Porks recent ly. I am specially pleased to see that you have no occasion to question the personal character of Mr. Knauf, whom you have seen fit to oppose for this office. Mr. Knauf has resided in Stutsman county for twenty-three years. He has never been sued, has never been accused of "throwing" his client or of retaining money collected for his client. He has never tasted intoxicating liquors in his life, and his personal habits and morals are abso lutely above reproach. His credit is good among the business men and the banks in his own county, and his clients are from among the best peo ple here. In this respect then the peo ple seem to have made no mistake in their choice, or the governor in his appointment, and it is specially gratify ing to his friends here that your criti cal eye can find nothing to question in this regard. It seems'that mud sling ing is today the rage, and no one's per sonal character, who happens to be In public life, is exempt. When people seek to do a man up that, it seems, it is usually the first point of attack, and to find a man like Mr. Knauf, clean in his life, temperate in his habits, true to his clients, honest in his business dealings, even under the most exact ing critics, is indeed something the people of this state may well congratu late themselves on. I have known Judge Knauf for twenty-three years. Have done business with him, been ad vised by him, have been in his home and know his wife and his children, and know what 1 am talking about. Judge Knauf got his early educa tion at the Jamestown high school, the Jamestown Presbyterian college, and later took the law course in Ann Ar bor, Mich. In what respect has your own early training, college and law course exceeded this? If so, in what way? Mr. Knauf has been admitted apd in the active practice of law con tinuously since 1S92. He has been en gaged in many important cases and has been very successful. Has your own practice or experience or success exceeded his? If so, in what way? You agree that Mr. Knauf's personal character and habits are not to be questioned. Does your own compare with his? Mr. Knauf has always paid his debts and always been true to his clients. Have you? Sometime ago the Journal of Minneapolis made the state* ment that your ill will towards Mr. Knauf was because of some old col lection he had against you for a Mr. Plunkett. It stated that you had col lected from some school district salary due to him and refused to account and pay same over. And it is said that this teacher, Mr. Plunkett, had em ployed Mr. Knauf to collect this money for him, and that after repeated dun ning and some judicial prodding, you finally paid same. And that because of this old controversy you were pre judiced against Mr. Knauf. Is this so? Is your reputation for paying your debts as good as is Mr, Knauf's? Do you believe that a judge of the su preme court should be honest in his life, or is not this needed? In the face of all these facts, don't you really think that Mr. Knauf is as competent for judge as yourself? I am only a voter, one of the many in this state. I may be assuming a good deal to write you as I have, but I feel as do many others that the peo ple are Interested in this matter and aro entitled to know all about it. Since the matter has come up in the papers as it has, I am perhaps a little bold, but if I am wrong, please set me right. I expect to support Knauf, just as I did when you were nominated like him for this same place. And I might add, had your life, training, capacity and ability been attacked at that time like his is now, what would you have done? Could you have come through like he is coming, unscathed? Would your private life be above criticism? Would your professional conduct, be unquestioned? I would like to hear from you, if it is not be neath your dignity to answer a humble voter. Yours very truly. B. L. WELD. SETTLED WITH COMPANT FOR $1200 John Hetherington of Larimore In jured About a Month Ago, Re. reives Remuneration.
