One Man Shot by Deputy
Sheriff and Others In
jured in Row.
Anamoose. Aug. 22.—Sunday after
noon, Adolph Kimpel, a man about
thirty years of acre, of Sawyer, N. D..
was shot in the upper part of the leg
and seriously, but not fatally, wound
ed by Deputy Sheriff C. F. Foster of
Turtle Lake, and a num'ber of other
men, including the officer mentioned,
were badly wounded as the result of
a mixup occurring at strawberry
Lake, a summer resort about forty
miles southwest of here and a few
miles south of Ruso.
Shortly after noon Kimpel with a
number of friends and relatives, all
men and seven in number, were
found by two other men, whose
I names have not been learned, but
who were described as and appeared
to be respectable and peace-abiding
citienzs, to be in possession of a hoat
What the latter had rented for the aft
ernoon. Those in possession were
asked to turn over the boat to the
persons who had rented it. but Kim
pel and his party refused to do this.
Mr. Foster, who was with the
two gentlemen mentioned also asked
I and directed Kimpel and his friends
^to give up possession of the boat.
Thereupon Kimpel and party attack
ed Foster and the two men with him.
The deputy sheriff, however, manag
ed to leave the scene at once and re
turned a few moments later with his
revolver, which he had taken from
his automobile. I'pon his return he

Adolph Kimpel rushed at the officer
and the latter, when there was noth

almost on top of him. onened fire
'. and wounded Kimpel as above Indi
cated. Whereupon the assailants
turned practically all of their efforts
toward Foster. He was soon relieved
of his gun and badly beaten and cut
up, and that he was not killed dur
ing those few moments is a wonder.
Finally, J. E. Nelson and former
Sheriff Simmonds of McLean county
secured the release of Foster, not by
force, but rather by diplomacy.
Shortly after a doctor had temporari

party left in automobiles with the ln

Sooth Bethlehem. Pa.
North Dakota
(By E. F. Ladd.)
Candle your eggs or stand prosecu
tion. The federal authorities are now
gathering evidence in North Dakota.
Remember as dealers you have been
warned, for the past five years, that
the eggs which were being shipped
and sold in the state contained too
many spoiled ones, too many that
were unfit to be used and should nev
er find their way on to the market.
The federal authorities are now en
forcing the statute for the shipping of
bad eggs in interstate commerce. The
work has begun In North Dakota and
this department is co-operating with
the federal authorities to see what
can be done to clean up the situation.
I am informed that already many
complaints have been lodged or seiz
ures made, and North Dakota deal
ers will undoubtedly find themselves
hauled before the courts for shipping
in interstate commerce eggs that are
decayed, decomposed and filthy ma
terial, unfit as an article of food.
Dealers should accept no eggs from
producers, under any condition, that
are not sound and all eggs should be
candled. Shippers should take no
chances in having eggs shipped that
are going to subject the dealers to
prosecution. The food department in
this state has endeavored, by sending
out notices to be posted in the stores
and through bulletins information, to
warn the dealers of the need for
greater care. Farmers need to see that
greater care is exercised in gathering
the eggs and not allowing them to re
main upon the ground or in the nests
or under such condition that they be
come spoiled before taken to the mar
ket. Local merchants should handle
them in such a way as to get them
into storage as early as possible, oth
erwise there is bound to be trouble.
It is an expensive proposition to have
your eggs seized and destroyed or to
be hauled into the courts for viola
tion of the federal food law. My ad
vice is, therefore, candle your eggs
and take no chances.
With the approach of harvest time
in the northwest, shippers are mani
festing interest in the preparartions
being made by the railroads of this
section to handle the farm produce of
the west.
According to officials, the railroads
are prepared to handle the normal
traffic both in and out of Nerth Da
kota- Naturally with a smaller crop
than usual, this probably will be less
of a problem than in previous years.
If necessary, the Great Northern
railway will be prepared to handle a
large share of the Canadian grain
crop, according to the statement of
local officials. Usually transportation
companies on this side of the border
are not called upon to move produce
from across the line, however, since It
is the effort of Canadian shippers to
send it over their own roads.
Consignments of this sort must be
shipped under bond unless they, are
intended for United States consump
tion and pay duty upon crossing the
From ten to fifteen car consign
ments are frequently shipped over lo
cal roads under this arrangement.
Each car is sealed and must not be
opened until it reaches its point of
unloading on an ocean liner bound
for a foreign port, or is returned to
the Canadian side.
The season of prairie fires is rapid
ly' approaching. In fact one or two
fires have already been reported. The
extremely heavy growth of grass this
season will make fire danger greater
than ever before- The month of
August is the proper season for plow
ing fireguards.
All land owners should mark out
their lands by at least three or four
furrows which should be placed two
rods in from the section lines and the
space between these furrows should
be burned o(T a little later on.
This season there are more of the
wild vetches and plants belonging to
the riover and alfalfa family than
e^r before. These plants are valu
able for feeding purposes and for en
riching the soil. No pains should he
spared to protect them from prairie
Of course, this is a busy season, but
it. is well worth while for every land
owner and farmer to give careful at
tention to this matter of plowing out
and hurning fire guards.
Jamestown. N. D.. Aug. 22.—"He's
in good care when Uncle Sam is look
ing after him," said Mrs. R. S. Miller
of Gackle. Logan county, postmistress
of that village, as she tied a. parcel
post card to her young son. Robert
S. Miller, junior. He was shipped via
parcel post to Lisbon, where he is
now visiting relatives.
For the reason that the child dla
not wei.^h over fifty pounds, the ship
ment was by all means permissable
according to post laws and regula
tions governing this special depart
ment of the mails.
Gackle, X. D.. Aug. 22.—Bennie
Payne and his assistant, a stranger
from Canada, both died in a well
near Streeter. The men were digging
a well five miles northwest of Street
er and after blasting the rock bot
tom with dynamite the stranger went
down in the well to Investigate. He
was soon overcome by gas and his
cries for help were answered by
Payne who gave his life in trying to
rescue him. Both were young men.
Mr. Payne waa well known in Gackle.

Are in Position to Take care
of Legitimate Demands
Says Secretary.
North Dakota banks never were In
better condition, according to W. C.
Macfadden, secretary of the North
Dakota Bankers' association- There Is
more money in the state at the pres
ent time than ever before, he says.
"North Dakota bankers are In po
sition to take care or legitimate needs,
even if requirements are heavier than
ever before. While most of the farm
ers may be hard hit, farm loans will
be renewed.
Many Hold Outside.
Many of these loans are 'held by
outside concerns and will not affect
local banking Institutions.
"I think that the bankers in the
various communities will be able to
•help the farmers who will need
money with which to buy seed wheat
next spring. I believe that the North
Dakota bankers are In better position
to take care of the needs of the state
than they ever were before."^
Other Crops Help.
Reports that the farmers of North
Dakota are flocking to the banks and
farm loan companies to renew their
loans and get additions, are contra
dicted by local and state bankers.
The farmers of the state are not
hard up, they say.

London, Aug. S2.—In a leading edi

The 8unday Times holds that the
United States has forfeited pOBt bet

enjoyed If a different attitude had
been assumed early in the war. It
"Next to war, perhaps nothing is
more wonderful than neutrality. In
theory, to be neutral Is to be nonpar
tisan and to favor neither side. But
In practice, as we know, neutrality
may arrogate to itself a variety of
functions which might at first sight
seem foreign to its nature.
One Neutral of Consequence.
"So far as the present war Is con
cerned, only one neutral of plain con
sequence exists. We refer, of course,
to the United States of America.
"There was a moment at the begin
ning of the war when the whole duty
of the American government seemed
to be palpably and surely before it
For good or ill, that moment was al
lowed to pass. America did not Inter
vene, did not move. Indeed to assert
a moral right she assumed the virtue
of her insistent participation in The
Hague convention.
Rights Aire Forfeited.
"If by this failure she lost nothing
of material importance, and may for
that matter rather have gained in so
far as her own immediate advantage
is concerned, she certainly forfeited
post bellum rights which would have
been hers If she had taken upon her
self the burdens and responsibilities of
Interference. This view of her position
is fully appreciated in those quarters
where American neutrality has been
upheld in the face of all criticism, and
obviously is the correct view."
Copenhagen, Aug. 22.—According
to the Dagens Nyheder, the Swedish
government published a blue book
containing the diplomatic documents
relating to the negotiations between
Sweden and England regarding the
seizure of British mails to Russia. This
seizure was in retaliation for the tak
ing by the British of parcel post,
America to Sweden.
Pact Is Violated.
The blue book states that on the In
itiative of Great Britain an agreement
was reached by which British mails
were to be released, England agreeing
to the establishment of an arbitration
court after the war to settle the ques
tion of its seizure of American mail.
Afer this agreement, the blue book
says, and most of 60.000 packages of
mails seized by Sweden had been for
warded to Russia, England suddenlv
demanded that Sweden allow all Eng
lish mails to pass to Russia in the
Rupture Is Feared.
Sweden refused to accept this
amendment to the original agreement,
whereupon England withdrew her
concession regarding the arbitration
court. The Dagens Nyheder savs that
