You Get Your Share Mr. Merchant! Now, Mr. Local Dealer, here is some straight talk. This is the month in which many manufacturers are laying out their ad vertising plans for the coming year. These plans naturally have for. their object an increase of. business. The manufacturer is going to spend his money where it is going to give him the best return. One thing that will |nfluence his plans is the extent to which dealers will co-operate in making local sales. That word co-operation does not mean sitting down and letting customers come, if they are willing. It means actively push ing the sale of goods advertised in, their local newspapers by the manufacturers. Now, why not let the manufacturers with \yhom you do business know that if (hey will help make business for you, you will help make business for Tell them that if they will use the newspapers of your town to make known the merit of their goods you will let the piijblic know that these goods can be had at your store. Co-operate-^andTlet your -manufacturers know you are willing to do so. Share in the dollar harvest by acting now, when it is. time to sow the seed.

Jan. 21.—The time when reservation Indians North Dakota can wink at the mar riage laws of the state and carry on clandestine relationship with immu nity has passed. Poor Lo can no longer plead ignorance of the law, at least not in the court of Judge C. W. Buttz of the second judicial district, which takes in the Devils Lake Indian reservation. Charley White, a brother-in-law of Chief Bender, the famous Indian pitcher, was yesterday sentenced to one year in the .state penitentiarv by Judge Buttz in a case in which 'isa dore Kahamanic, an Indian, was com plainant. The latter was several years ago sentenced for life in the peni tentiary for murder. At that stage White appeared at thA Kahamanic liomicile on the resenM^on and fol lowing a tribal custonwtook up his place at the head of the household, failing to have the marriage knot tied in the most approved eugenic fashion. .Recently Kahamanic was paroled and, unlike the Enoch Arden of the story book, he started a war dance around his tepee which attracted the attention of the judge and state' at torney with the result that White en tered a plea of guilty to the charges preferred. This follows a cleanup of the reser vation near Minnewaukan when five persons were sent to the penitentiary on the lame charge. Judge Butts holds the Indians responsible for their moral conduct and answerable for the infraction of every state law.
