FARM CUJB HBD Dual Purpose Cow ably Dis cussed at Session of Niag ara-Shawnee Ass'n. .Niagara, N. D.. Dec. 12.—The first tncctlng In December of the Niagara Btimvnee Agricultural club had un un usually large attendance. The M. W. A. hall where the meetings are held was well flUed and many could find standing room only. The abundant and appetising lunch prepared by the lunch committee proved entirely ade quate nevertheless. The program was opened with music. A chor.us from Shawnee con sisting of Mr- and Mrs. Urness, Anna Ness. Christine Moen, Uldrlck Moen, Frode Hemmingson and Mrs. Kolding rendered a number of selections which were much appreciated. Mrs. Ernest Kirk read "The Christening." The dual cow was discussed by David Kirk. He emphasized the fact that the average farmer of today needs stock to restore his farm to its former fertility. Farmers in other countries, he stated, have been forced lo resort to cattle raising to redeem their lands and the time has come when the North Dakota farmer must follow in their footsteps. The speak er suggested the Shorthorn, the Browu Swiss and the Red Poll as acceptable for general purpose cattle. Andrew Drengson in his talk on feeding cattle brought out the point that it is not necessary that a farmer should have expensive barns and standard bred stock in order to make cattle raising a profitable business. Of late years nearly every farmer has harvested a goodly supply ofrwild oat.-, and Mr. Drengson said these could be turned into good butter and beef. Corn, while being fine feed, helps to clean the land. Krnost Kirk in talking on the sub ject of milking and feeding cows, said the hired help problem was the great est hinderance to the dairy business. A farmer to bo entirely successful in this line must specialize in it. Tie ndvised cement floors in barns, the use of a night yard as well as a dav pasture, the use of the Bahcock milk tester and recommended that each farmer should make his own butter and sell the surplus cream. Henry Fink gave a short, pithy and Instructive talk on feeding and raising calves. After the third week he ad vised feeding ground oats and separ ator milk. This ration, he stated, pro duced strong, healthy calf. At. the meeting: a superintendent. Mrs. Harry Jopling, was appointed to organize patron teachers' clubs in the surrounding rural schools.

She was a nice sweet girl, and growing sweeter every day. Has a nice, sweet young lady any moral or legal right to have a preju dice against anything or anybody? Miss Addle had one. She didn't tell it to everybody, but she talked with hersalt about It very often. ^That prejudice was against sawed off men, both young and old. She could stand red hair or cock eyes or turn-In toes, but when it came to a man Ave feet two inches high strut ting around with his chest thrown out she looked the other way. lit was no use for the father to say that Napoleon was a Bawed-off man, or the mpther to announce that Alex ander the Great could hardly sauint over a fence Ave feet high.

Brother Bob was to be home on his vacation. Brother Bob was just of age, and a civil engineer, or soon to be one, and he was both smart and lovely. There were other brothers in the world, but no other brother Bobs. Girls laud their brothers and try to make matches and don't succeed once in 60 times. Miss Addle liked smart men. She had been hearing of Bob Harmon tor the last two years, and now she was to see him alive. He would be tall and have a pro fessional look about him, and when she wandered arm in arm with him across the meadows farmers driving past would stop their teams to stand up in their wagons to whisper: "Gosh, but can you beat that!" As Miss Addie left the train at the country station she saw her friend, Miss Molly, waiting -In an auto for her. Approaching her with a grin on his face to see about her baggage was some one else.

Acting on that belief she has produced "Rachel." Oddly enough Mme. Kalich's career bears a singular resemblance to that of the true "Rachel's" except in the matter of morals.

Miss Addie had a mental picture of brother Bob sitting there with his feet six inches above the floor, and laugh ed. She also recovered her speech and began to tell how happy she was. As a matter of fact, she had no business to be either astonished or disappointed. If brother Bob and the rest of the world were suited she had no objection. The young man laid himself out to be nice and succeeded. After three or four days his sawed-ofTness didn't look so sawed. Bly thinking of a man seven feet high all the time the girl managed to make herself believe that Bob was at least 6 feet 6. Love him. Mary him? Never, while water flowed and clocks ticked! Nice Bob, what there was of him, but there was only about balf enough. On the fifth day of her visit, and while Miss Molly was taking her mu sic lessons, the visitor strolled down the highway. Brother Bob would have strolled with her, but she dodged him. The first he knew of her ab sence was when he heard her scream and ran Into the road to see a husky tramp holding her by the arm. The sawed-off man made about 14 Jumps and sent that Weary Willie In to dreamland by a blow on the chin knocked htm out as neatly as Jeffries could have done, and dldnt brag about It, either. He explained that It was a little way he had, and let it go at that. As soon as Miss Addie got over her scare she looked long at brother Bob and Anally made ap her mind that he must be at least 5 feet 8. She also found herself almost believing that a aawed-ott had a tight to live aa nail Whca the Children Cough Use MUSTEROLE Xo telling how soon the symp toms may develop into croup.

HELD FOR TRIAL Alleged Horse Thief, Brought from Canada, is Bound Over. Minot, N. D., Dec. 12.—At a hear ing held today, Arthur Snyder, charg ed with horse stealing, was bound over to the district court for trial. Snyder was arrested at Regina, Can ada, several days ago. just as he con as a giant. Three more days passed and then the trio went fishing in the lake. Three persons are not too many to fish from the same skiff if one of them does not catch a little sunflsh weighing about an ounce and jump around and upset the craft. That's what happened. Miss Molly could swim, and she headed away for shore, but Miss Ad die went down like a bag of sand, and it was the sawed-off hero who dived and brought her up and clung to the boat until bis sister brought another to their rescue. "O, I don't know," replied Bob an hour later when thanked. "I just hap pened to be on tbe spot, you see. Having such long legs, I'm a natural swimmer!" Long legs! Miss Addie smiled. Then she became serious. Was she near-sighted? Was Bob Harmon en titled to be called "long legs" instead of 'Stuck legs?" It might be. At any rate, she measured him with her eye and decided that he had grown an inch in the last 24 hours. It was in the middle of the third week that the climax came. The three were out in the auto when they enoountered an automobile with two young men riding in it. They were heard for some distance singing a ribald song. As they drew nearer they became more boisterous, and seeing two girls and a small boy in the other machine they halted theirs in a narrow spot and blocked the way. "What Is it?" ssked Bob Harmon as he stood up. "Don't be scared bub—no one is go ing to bite you." was answered. ,?--.rr^"!g V^'. v'Kk',:- swsrH''"?,*^-~V/y~T' .?'" 4* W -i'u 7 1'.•,-s?'* But you are obstructing the road." lis an expensive luxurr^ •:~'V ,"v 7 *.

"Yes, Bubby, yes, hat we want to sing you a song. Will the young la dies kindly join the chorus, plesse?" "My soul, but don't raise a row here!" exclaimed Bob's slater as ha dropped out of the auto. "Mr. Harmon—Bob—please 4aat!** added Miss Addle. The men roared with laughter as Bob advanced upon them, and when be had quite reached their auto they jumped down, thinking to play ball with him. The girls couldn't see it all on ac count of the dust that was kicked up, but when the air cleared one of the men was running away and the oih lying prone. They were a licked pair. Their automobile was backed away and left In the ditch, and all the saw ed-off man had to say about it was: "There are times when you smiply have to do it." That night Miss Addle did a lot ot thinking. It was mostly about short men and heroes and Napoleons. She had come to a conclusion about the time the roosters began crowing. When she had reached home after her visit and told her mother all, the mother musingly queried: "So you are engaged to a sawed off man after all you've bad to say about them?" 'Yes, mother, Bob isn't so very tall, but I'm going to learn to bend over so that when we walk out we will ba the very same height!" His Experience.
