The Fargo Argus is undertaking to fight a local meat combine, by getting farmers who bring in stock, higher prices than local butchers have been paying. The price charged for beef is high enough to warrant the paying ot better prices by the butohers, says the Argus.

The five coaches were filled with the employes and their fami lies. Everyone that could go went, as these picnics are looked forward to with great anticipations. A muoh smaller audience than the merits of the play and company deserved greeted the "Jane" performance last night. The play was preoeeded by a bright little curtain raiser, whioh only hinted at the abilities of the company, that were more fully seen in the three act play that followed. "Jane" is a society comedy, crowded with comical situations and funny developments. The plot thickens every minute and the desperation of many of the situations grew extremely ludicrous. The acting of Miss Parker as "Jane," the house maid assuming to be the wife of the master of tbe establishment, was excel lent and laughter and applause was constant throughout tbe play. The oompany goes to the coast. Manager Brown of tbe company has a plau which he thinks would increase the business of theatrical companies like the "Jane" party, in long trips over the transconti nental lines. This is to give two nights to a town instead of one, particularly where the company is playing for the first time in a place. He thinks, with a good cast, the merits of the first night would so thoroughly advertise the play that the second performance would be well patronized and the only additional expense to tbe company would be the hotel bills. A new company, in anew play, that might draw in the east or south often is practically unknown to people of the far west, and a good many of the best attractions are not seen by those who would if they knew the play was as advertised.
