A Fort Yates dispatch says: Stand ing llock Indians do not take kindly to tke proposal for the removal of the San tees from Devils Lake to this reserva tion. They hold that they have not more than land enough for themselves. Prob ably the best plan would be that pro posed some years ago, namely, to buy out the few settlers on the old Fort Rice reservation, north of this reservation, at tach some land west of this, and form a separate reservation but adjoining Stand ing Rock. This proposed reservation wouid have fifty miles frontage on tile Missouri river, line hay meadows and abundant timber and eoal, and could be procured at very small cost. Major Biiifienheiiner, the agent here, is in favor of this plan, excepting for the fact that liquor would be easily procured on the north side from white people. Harry Since brought in nine rattles and a button with the fresh skin attach ed to prove the truth of his story that he had killed a rattlesnake on the 20th of January. Owing to the extraordinary weather the reptile, which he found right in the road, must have been thawed out of his torpidity. The Indians believe the finding of a snake in winter portends some tdrrible calamity. O Bears the Signature of TOniA. Tto Kind You tiava Always Bougti %C Census Work. Supervisor Laughlin of the census states that an earnest effort will be made to get the statistics of tho state up in a creditable manner that will give the gen eral public some idea of the rapid devel opment of the flickertail country. He has had a difficult task to get the maps and data required by the depart ment, but has been ably assisted by the county auditors and school superinten dents of the state. In the selection of the enumerators prefeience will be given to school teach ers and struggling young men who are trying to acquire an education. As the census is under the supervision of the republican administration, natur ally enumerators of that political faith will be chosen. In some counties meet ings have already been held to select men to be recommended for the posi tions. Mr. Laughlin will be largely guided by these recommendations in all cases where he is assured of the compet ency of the parties selected. RED HOT FROM THE GUN. Was the ball that hit 6. B.

The readers of this paper will be pleased to learn that there is at least one dreaded disease that science has been able to cure in all its stages, and that is Catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure is the only positive cure known to the medical fraternity. Catarrh being a constitutional disease, requires a con stitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure is taken internally, acting directly upon the blood and niucuous surfaces of the system, thereby destroying the foundation of the disease, and giving the patient, strength by building up the constitution ana assisting nature in doing its work. The proprietors have so much faith in its curative powers, that they offer one hundred dollars for any case that it fails to cure. Send for list of testimonials. Address F. J. CIIENEY & CO., Toledo.

The Dickinson Press says: In the last few weeks considerable has been talked about wool prices for the coming season. Wool buyers have been through the country trying to contract for some of the best clips. Here is a proposition that a New York speculator made to S. P.

In case that the price of wool should go higher than 20 cents and Mr. Cota should desire to sell to other parties ho to have the privilege of so doing by paying the wool buyers 1 cent per pound. This buyer made similar offers to a number of Glen dive parties, but so far as known none of the offers were accepted, I Chlcken-Llce & Mites conquered.

President Worst Before the State Grain Growers Association at Fargo. In his opening address to the grain growers of tho state at Fargo Presi dent Worst of the agricultural college made the following remarks, which will be of general interest and benefit: The lieliet' is general that agricul tural education, and state prosperity are inseparably united. Time, for a brief period, while our rich soils are giving up the accumulated fertility of countless ages, a prodical system of grand larceny against nitrogen, humus and other soil constituents may be pur sued with impunity and apparently without detriment: but as surely as the present destruction, of pine in the northwest will in a. few years depopu late the forests, so certainly will our prevailing methods of farming end in soil exhaustion. We have already reached a point, where discussion is profitable, although but two decades have passed since the sod was broken. The farmers of .the area embraced by this convention perhapB do not fully realize the wonderful wealth nature lias placed in the soil ait their disposal. This great wealtih must not be wasted. The farm should be so cultivated and the liiproducts so utilized, and such re turns made to the soil as will perpet uate its productiveness. A thousand years hence it should be richer in those elements necessary to produce profit able crops than it. is 't.odav. Common patriotism demands, therefore, that the tremendous burden of restoring a wasted fertility be not forced upon our children's children, not that, we may do better, but that we may perform our work wit- more skill. These northwestern states are peculiarly sit uated, iand the soil and climatic con ditions specially adapt them to fill a great place the future of our coun try and of the world. The net surplus product of our bread and meat will constitute our future wealtih. and the demand for it: will increase as the world's population is augmented and the production of food is driven with in ever narrowing circles. We can afford to husband cur wonderful re sources. It is little less than crim inal to do otherwise. Every farmer should be a close ob server. an anient student of nature, and he should look upon unscientific agriculture and slip-shod farm work a.s we all do upon malpractice in sur gery or dentistry.

Why should so much care be exer cised for tihe health ef this generation and so little for what shall produce the food fo" the next? Or, rather, why should we not take reasonable cognizance of both? For the_lat.ter is as serious a problem as the former. As we express it, "soil wears out" crops average lighter and of inferior quality Hessian tl.v, weeds and rust greatly injure large grain areas, and smut is no respecter of persons, fields, or localities. Frost, hail and gophers do untold mischief as well. Some of the plagues are utterly be yond human control, but most of them are either hugely or absolutely con trollable and others are curable. Tho net annual losses to the farm ers from these causes, even from evils that are curable, are appalling. The amount readies far up into millions. Weeds and smut alone cause a net loss to the farmers of North Dakota of not less than .$5,000,000 annually, and in the long run we give away bi-products that are worth as much more. In part of this we are the immediate losers, and in part I he -.ess falls upon poster ity. WORKING NIGHT AND DAT.

In this country we consume bushels per capitu the average for the world is little less than 4% bushels per capita. About 515,000,000 people eat wheat for food and about a thousand million do not. We ought to reach many of those thousand millions. In a small way China and Japan have begun to buy our Hour. Last year about 12,000,000 bushels of wheat as flour were sold them but there has not been a day in tho last year when we could find ships to carry an eighth of what western millers could sell. A miller in Seattle told me he could sell 1,200 barrels a day if he could ship it. I have given this mntter a great deal of attention and I know the people in the orient who use flour can only get enough of it to make pastry. If we could teach China to use wheat the way we do we would have to live on rye and Indian corn if we sup plied the need. How can a Chinaman afford^ to buy flour and eat it as food? If Chinamen spent one cent a day for wheat bread it would take 84,000,000 a day to pay the bill. We don't produce enough to supply China with one cent per day for wheat floiir. That leaves room for expansion. This world will go on and the people in it will improve. We must keep up with the procession. What is necessary to give us the benefit of that eastern market? .Nothing, except to pro vide the means to carry our product to that market at a fair price. Last year we carried under the American flag a very smnll per cent of that trade. We have been quite busy helping the man who makes iron, the man who raises wool, and, in fact, all exeept the man who is on the farm. If we help the iron man, tho leather man, the wool man, that is the way to help the farmer. That is what, with the best intentions, those who have tried to build up the industries of this country say. I want to say that so long as tho farmer has to face the world's competition, he has to compete with the exportable surplus of all coun tries. You might assume that if you ship your grain free to Liverpool you have advanced the price of your wheat, but within a year the price in London would be that much less.
