Not Another Big Crop.
Ex-Senator Casey is ot the opinion that it is not probable that there will be another large crop in the state next year and that the farmers holding their grain are for this reason, in addition to others, likely to get a better price for it. The experience of the past shows no two big orop years coming together in North Dakota. The land seems to want a rest after an unusual effort.- The growing belief of Mr. Casey is that it would pay farmers if nothing but summer fallowed landjcould be cropped. Speaking of the low price of grain and methods of boards of trade by which the price is now largely regulated, Mr. Casey says: The board of trade men will tell you that there must be a buyer for every seller and that there is as much reason for speculation to advance prices as to reduce them. But this is not now ex actly true aB the buyers have been so frequently and badly caught on declin ing markets that they are fewer in num ber, less aggressive, and only buyers at a lees price. The seller being able to offer wheat not in existence in great quanti ties, and the buyers being timid and not organized to act in unison as the bears, the price they take the grain at is lower if at all. This syBtem tends to lower prices, and will eventually result, it seems, in entirely removing the specula tive buyer from the board, leaving the bears in full control, when the actual demand and supply can again become operntive and once more regulate prices. This may in time do away with the present undesirable methods of boards of trade tixing prices on the great wheat staple of this country. These evils have a tendency to regulate themselves, and the process now going on in the wheat pits of gradually eliminating the buyer from many transactions, may be one of the very remedies that is needed. Utilizing the Waste. Following out its policy of economy the Northern Pacific management is taking advantage of the tens of thous ands of ties which annually are tuken from the roadbed as no longer service able and putting tbem to use. Hereto fore they have been burned, to get them out of the way. or sold to farmers for fuel at a few cents a loud. Hereafter they will be used to construct, perman ent snow fences to take the place of the costly portable board fences now in use. The ties are set upright in long rows, planted two feet deep, and make a fence «ix feet high—about the same heighth as the portable board fences. About a mile and a half of tie fence has been put up along the Jamestown & Northern this year, some on the Fargo & Southwestern branch, and a small amount on the Cooperstown branch. About 20,000 tics are annually taken from the roadbed on the Jamestown & Northern, and 15,000 on the Valley branch. These, if used for fencing, would make about six miles. An ordinary board fence, besides costing much for annual maintenance—their greatest foes are 6aid to be tbe wind, fire and farmers—has a life of less than ten years, while the new fences have an indefinite life. Prairie Wild Flowers In the September number of the Northwest Magazine. Jj. S. Russell has the second paper on wild flowers of North Dakota. Three specimens^ nre described and beautifully illustrated, the ant flower, bluebell and wild rose. The first named is an annual called from the fact that ants are found upon and around tbis L.laut daring the day. It somewhat resembles the mus-. tard. The other two well known varie ties are described with tbe admiration of the keen observer. Speaking of ihe indications that a farm house porch with vines on it, or window with flowers iu it, give to a traveler, Mr. RUBSOII observes: When I see such evidence of refine ment in the wipdow, as I drive up to the house, 1 naturally'conclude that it is truly indicative of tb« refinement which dwells within—and, so far, the result of further acquaintance has established this conjecture as a fact. Upon enter ing such houses I have always found that neatness, order and cleanliness were the rule, and this has beer observed amonr families where English was neither written nor spoken. There are, indeed, many attractions in the homes that dot tbe prairies of North Dakota. All that is needed is for one to be on the Jookout for them—and one finds them.

If ber system needs the cleansing action of a laxative remedy, she uses the gentle and pleasant liquid laxative Syrup of Figs. Big Sheep Shipments. Tbe twenty-three cars of Washington •beep which have been feeding near the stock yards for several days were shipped to Chicago Wednesday. There were over 200 sheep in a car, or nearly 5,000 in the band. They were of small size, as a rule. It is at present the intention of Jan dell & Ringer to fatten on grain 1,700 of the extra fine sheep they shipped to St. Paul this week, and take them to Eng land. It is likely that Mr. Ringer will aooompany tbe shipment and will start in about six weeks. Tbey intended to ship 2,000 head across tbe ocean, but the aooident by which nearly 300 were killed will reduce the size of the venture. Tbe sheep were specially large, fine animals. Children Cry for Plteher's Castoria. Looking Up an Old Deal. Finlay Dun and aon of Edinburgh, Scotland, P. B. Groat and Ben Russell left for a land inspection trip sooth of Windsor Wednesday to be absent aeveral days. In early days The North Ameri can Land Co., in wbieh Mr. Don is in terested, purchased through Calvin Brown a large amount ot land in this county supposed to be the best charac ter of farm land. A portion of tha money was, it is said, put by Mr. Brown into the big unfinished hotel at Windsor that has stood for many years as a monument to an unfortunate foreign investment. Mr. Dun is now looking over tbe land which is situated about 20 miles south of Windsor in tbe Coteaux. What dis position is intended for it is not known. Mr. Dun himself is one ot tbe best known men in Scotland and England, as an authority on agricultural matters, having made agrioulture a study, and being frequently called upon to deliver lectures before societies and meetings on that subject. He also acted as cor respondent of tbe London Times for the royal commission that visited this coun try several years ago to investigate methods of agriculture, etc., and report their findings. He is a most interesting* scholarly man and entertained a group of North Dakota bonanza farmers and others for an hour or more yesterday evening in discussing farm matters. He iB traveling with Richard Sykes on the latter's annual trip to America. $100 Reward, $100.

Here is a North Dakota farm item which undoubtedly will be something of an eye-opener for down-east readers who never have had an opportunity of per sonally inspecting one of the larger farms of the state. Tbe Hillsboro Ban ner says: A. R. Dalrymple just now has something of a job on his bunds. He is superintending harvesting and thresh ing 20,000 acres of land. It takes 101 binders to cut the grain on this immense plantation, and those machines dispose ot 1,700 acres daily. Of this large acre age 1,700 is barley, 1,400 is oats, 320 corn and 55 flax, while the balance is wheat. We want eastern farmers to ponder over these things and these things and tell us what they think of A. R.'s job. A divorce has been granted by Judge Ro*e to J. M. H. Stover, of Grand Rap ids, LaMoure county, from his wife, Delia M. The plaintiff, who is a physi cian, formerly came frotn Broadway, Va., where iu '94 he made an unsuccessful at tempt to secure release from an uncon genial union.

Mr. Stover owns what is known as the Hall farm, four miles east of Grand Rapids, and is a prosperous farmer. KNOWLEDGE Brings comfort and improvement^ tends to personal enjoyment wbett rightly usea.

Claimed She Was Blanketed at the Start by a Big Pilot ^Boat. Said Also That She Did Not In tend to Race When She Came Out. NEW YORK, Sept. 13.—The third race of the series for the America's cup was a complete fiasco, and was exceedingly disappointing to all lovers of the sport. Both yachts crossed the starting line, but almost immediately the Valkyrie put about and returned to her anchor age. Soon after she crossed the line it is claimed she was blanketed by a pilot boat, and this is given as the reason for her action in withdrawing. She hoisted the New York Yacht club's pennant, signifying she gave up the race. There is also considerable talk in yachting circles that Lord Dnnraven did not intend to sail the race, and it is pointed out that the boat was only half prepared to race when she came up to the line. May Not Have Finished. Although Defender passed the neigh borhood of the finish line at about 4:04:30, the finish gun was apparently not fired, and owing to the crowding of the ex cursion steamers, it covild not be ascer tained if she really finished the race. Indeed, she may have passed to the lee ward of the mark, in order not to finish. This matter, however, could not be def initely decided from here. Course Wasn't Clear Enough. NEW YORK, Sept. 13.—The Valkyrie has returned to Bay Ridge. Arthur Glennie, Lord Dunraven's representa tive, and authorized by Lord Duma veil to speak, stated that the reason for not sailing was interferences from excur sion steamers. Wednesday he sent a letter to the America's cup committee, as already detailed, to be opened after the consideration of the protest, saying that if he could be assured of a clear course he would sail, otherwise he would not. He merely crossed the line to make a race. HENRY OF NAVARRE WON. Crack Four-Year-Olds Itun a Matcli Race at Slieepsliead Bay.

The race consisted of a sweep stakes of $1,000 each, at a mile and a furlong. Domino led into the stretch where Henry of Navarre overtook him and won by half a length.
