Prof. Shepperd was one of ten speak ers iioiu m»: ten IU&.PS of the central whose farmers own 44,-6 per cent of all the horses and mules in the ivi tetates and whose cities use an n'dditional 30.5 per cent of all the horses and mules used in non-agri rultural work. "There is a perceptible turn in the, tide in North Dakota toward horses and mules for farm work." Prof. F.hepperd told the assembled horse men. "and an almost complete, cessa tion of the purchase of large tractors while the small tractors bought are designed to do work in the.-belt and serve as 'gouge' help in the field when all conditions are favorable for thefti. "The National Tractor Show held nt Kargo^ last summer proved very disappointing in attendance and in terest. while the slate fair and the local fairs had excellent horse shows, live or six times the numbers shown that there were at the 1920 fairs and t.he fair attendance did not fall far short of normal.

Little Boy At Bismarck Mistakes Judge Robinson For Dear Old Santa Claus Bismarck. X. !., Nov. 2».— Ono small Bismarck lad had the disappointment which to quotc^a much known remark "happens but onoc In a lifetime." With his mother, who purchased some art icles at a display counter near the door, he entered a down town res taurant Monday night at the time of the. evening meal. Judge J. E. Robinson of the North Dakota Su preme Court was an occupant, at one of the tables. The lad stood beside his mother for a minute or two.,eyeing the judge. Then with the light of a discoverer in his eyes, he marched down the aisle until he reached the judge's side, liooking up ivltti perfect confi dence at the huge mane of hair and whitening beard, he said: "Hullo! Are you Santa Claus?" Even the judge's late decision in a recall election ease did not. cause more disappointment than that which crept into the'face of the six-year-old. as the jurist sadly shook his head, probably wishing that he was the fabled priver of gifts at Christmas tide, that die light in the lady's eyes might not be dimmed. Red Tomahawk Visits Capitol and Has His Photograph Taken Bismarck, N. p., Nov. 29.—Red Tomahawk and his band of Sioux Indians remained in Bismarck over Monday, following their ap pearance here with Marshal Foch.

Several implied that "they will attempt to make the*, state sell them their •homes for .$5,000', the top price.set by the law creating the association. •Won't.Pay Added Cost. "We can't and won't pay more than the estimated cost," was the declara tion of practically every person, inter viewed b.V Mr. Adams,, he satd. Most of them declared that they await the result o£« the test case soon to be tried at Mandan, it Is understood, be fore "taking any legal action. While in aojne cases tho prospective owners declared they might pay a little more tnan the estimated price, they refused tjj'pay the. cost .pricc, asking rather refund of the money they have ad vanced. If the state- can be forced to sell the homes at $5,000, t.he state, through the association, will lose several thou sand dollars on Fargo homes alone. The Lemke honje cost price is more than $20,000 the Johnson home has cost more than. $14,000, as has the Boeing residence. Of the 22 homes built in Fargo by the association, no one has cost less than $5,000 the cheapest one of the 22 will cost $5, 792. The only job running under $5 000 is for remodeling on theiSeely res idence, amounting to $2,036.37, which has been settled. Of the remainder, 0ne costs over $9,000 three cost $8, 000 eight cost more than $7,000 ..and five cost $6,000. Should Turn Back Advances. Rather than sell the homes to the association members at $5,000, the state had better turn back advanced funds and sell the homes on the open market, Mr. A.dams believes, as prac tically every one should bring more than that amount and some more than twice or three times as much. Afred Knutson, a Fargo member of the association, upon receipt of word' that his home was to cost $7,143.42, wrote today "this amount I cannot and will not pay." The estimates giv ,en him by representatives of the as sociation were between $4,500 and $4 ,700, he said, and was assured by them that these estimates jwere sub stantially correct. He claims that while the furnace was not installed properly, he is willing to pay $4,700 for the home,, but will not pay the ,cost price. David Hull called t!he. price of $T. 376.76 submitted to him "out of rea son." The cost of his home 'Wfas, he Fa id, estimated to be not more than $6,000 artd assurances were given that ,tt woul£.not run above $4,700 about $1,000 more than half of the cost price. Mr. Hull picked out one or the seven homes built by the association without owners. He sa that in speeches made by league campaigners from the steps of the houses, he was informed that the house woyld be compete in 30 or 40 days and. that his home was1not. complete until late in December. He asks to hold the home on the price arranged in his •verbal agreement witlt O. B. Tewes, then assistant manager of the associa tion.

The desire of the board is to avoid unnecessary expenditure during the readjustment period and also may face enforced economy of failure of payment of taxes bv many persons. The buildings at the u/iiverslty, agri cultural college, Dickinson normal and. feeble-minded institution are re garded as pressing needsi in those in stitutions.

After the jury had been questioned by both the defense and state, it was discovered that no plea had been entered, and that the defense had the right to re quest the drawing of a new jury.

D., Nov. 29.—Robert Flint, recently appointed to the office of state dairy commissioner has in herited the most traveled desk, and I in some ways, the most unusual desk in the ownership of the stae. In the first place it is declar.-J to be the only mahogany desk in the state house. The others are oak. and while some of them date back to territorial days, they do not enjoy the aristocratic as sociations of the rather small piece ot furniture in which thovnew state dairy commissioner is finding a place for his papers. The desk was purchased in 1905 and was first used in the North Da kota headquarters of the Alaskan Ex position i*t Portland. Then it traveled back to North Dakota and was in the office of the attorney general. Later it greeted 5Tr. Flint when he was a member of the state force some years ago. Some time before that it had been rescued by one of the custodians of the state house when a retiring office holder sought, to remove it from the building as private property. Mr. Flint brings to his association with the mahogany desk something of state historic interest also, as he erected the first creamery in North Dakota. The year was 1899 and the place Oliver county. Mr. Flint is in clined to' believe that his Judgment as to the place to start creameries is good, for this plant, twenty miles from a, railroad is still running while other and better known concerns have flourished for a day and then gone out of business.
