Mrs. Hansbrough also read a number of her poems. It is stated that the sales of liquor, as shown by the drug store affidavits, have averaged about 1,500 per month for each of the three drug stores at Langdon' for several months past. This makes nearly 300 gallons of liquor consumed each month, if each sale represents.only a half pint. This seems like quite a quantity of medicine to be consumed in a healthy community like Langdon. Walsh County Record: As a result of the amendment, passed by the sixth legislative assembly, which provides that the two mill tax shall be a county tax and paid into the county treasury and apportioned among the schools of the county, instead of, as heretofore, paid into the state treasury and apportioned among the schools of the state, the annual apportionment per pupil in this county will be decreased about 70 cents. This will in many school districts neces sitate an increase of tax levy in ordor to meet the running expenses of the dis trict.

S. navy and acquiring "undying fame"— the other pursuing the peaceful avoca tions of civil life, an intelligent, upright and respected citizen, for nearly twenty years a resident of North Dakota, now residing at Forman. Mr. Dewey is a modest and agreeable gentleman, appar ently 55 years of age. GOOD THING FOR SETTLERS.

An innocent little amendment was inserted in the sundry civil act, just as it was being completed during the ex piring days of the last congress. It provided that all persons who had made entries on the Big Sioux reserva tion should be entitled to patents upon payment of the original government pricte of a dollar and a quarter an acre whether tlieir proof and payment be made after fourteen months or five years after date of entry and settle ment on the lands. The act of 1&S0 above alluded to. contained a provision which lias fre quently been called the "doubling-up" law. It exacted in addition to the orig inal payment of a dollar and a quar ter an acre, exactly double that amount, provided a settler wished to commute his entry and dispose of the same. This worked a hardship on many of the settlers and homestead ers. For the same additional sum per acre was required of the latter class of people as from those who paid cash. Under the terms of the amendment to the sundry civil bill this extra $1.25 is no longer required by the government, and the registers and receivers of the general land offices at Bismarck. N.

'Wgy '7 GOOD FARMING. Example of What Thrifty Farming and Energy Will Do for Settlers in North Dakota. Just to show what good farming and the right kind of methods will do for settlers coming into North Dakota, the Jamestown Alert cites the example of George Joos of Stutsman county, as follows: "About twenty years ago Mr. Joos camc to Jamestown from Wisconsin. Ho took as a homestead, part of the place where he now lives and put up a small frame shanty 10x12. A year later he brought out his wife and three small children. After landing here he had in money just $5. Ho was charged 83 for the breakfast for the family and SI for some other trilling accommodation by Landlord Kelliher, and started farm life in North, Dakota with just SI in cash. He had, however, a span of horses and a wagon, with feed and provisions to last until fall. But his main rosource lay in the industry and economy by him self and his good wife. He broke a little on his own claim and in winter freighted to Fort Totten for Ward Bill to pay for groceries. It was hard to get along in those days for the country was new and Mr. Joos put up with all kinds of priva tions, such as new settlers now know nothing of. He economized on the necessaries of life, because he could no do otherwise. Mr. Joos laughs now as he looks over a herd of 60 or rnyre fat stock grazing in his pasture, and thinks that in early days for two years and five months he did not have a drop of milk to use in his family. The first money he earned breaking for Judge Glaspell, 825, he started out with to buy a cow. Jim Lee had a cow which he would not sell for less than 810 cash. After vainly try ing to get credit for the 816 needed, he found his old friend Bill would loan him the money and with it he got the cow. storekeeper would not in those days trust him for 40c for a lantern globe, which he needed, but Ward Bill came to the rescue again and offered to make the loan 50c. But 40c was borrowed and the globs bought. Mr. Joos says he could raise 81,000 easier now than he could that 40c then. "Early as 1884 he was able to build the house he now occupies. He has now clear of debt, 1,340 acres of land within five and six miles of Jamestown, a large barn built at a cost of 81,500, some 60 odd head of horned stock. 25 head of horses, besides the usual large farm ma chinery outfit. He could sell his place and retire from active work. The story is interesting, as it is part of the history of the early settlers of the county, and shows besides what North Dakota can do for those who, like George Joos, put hard work, good management and pluck into the business of farming on the prairie.

The decisions bearing on this point are not to be attacked, but the question is to bo raised as to where the sale of a C. O. D. package occurs. The enforcement league will claim that the sale of a C.

The claim is made that the transportation company in such cases acts not only as a common carrier, but also as the vendor's agent, and that the goods, until the actual transfer is made, are virtually in the vendor's possession.

He wrote wool commission houses in Boston and Philadelphia for an ad vance. They reported they would not accept consignments of the western wool —except freight was prepaid in full.
