Catarrh is one of the most obstfnpts diseases, and hence the most to get rid of. There is but one way to cure It. The disease is in the blood, and all the sprays, washes and inhaling mixtures in the world can have no permanent effect whatever upon it. Swift's Spe cific cures Catarrh permanently, forit is the only remedy which can reach the disease and force it from the blood. Mr. B. P. McAllister, of Harrodsburg, Ky., had Catarrh for years. He writes: «I could see no Improvement whatever, tbongh I was constantly treated with sprays and washes, and differ ent inhaling remedies— S.S.S.rh.Blood is Purely Vegetable, and is the only blood remedy guaranteed to contain no dangerous minerals.

I then decided to try 8. S. S., and after a few bottles were used, I no ticed a perceptible improvement.

If the Devils Lake reservation is opened, it is said that there will not be over 500 settlers who could take 1G0 acre tracts under the United States land laws. Since 1869 a great many In dians have been allowed to take lands in severalty, and family allotments of 40 acre tracts, grain farms and timber pieces. The reservation has been "eheckerboarded" with these allotments, under the law that the Indian should be self-supporting. The coroners jury in the drowning ac cident at Jamestown have returned a verdict as follows: "The said jurors upon their oaths do say that said Adolph Thompson and Elfrida Hallen berg came to their death by drowning in a hole in the ice on the James river where the ice had been taken and said hole was left without guards required by law that said drowning was accidental and done sometime about 8 or 9 p. m., January 22,1900 and we, the jury re quest the officers of the law to cause all persons to be prosecuted who hereafter take ice from the river without causing guards to be placed around said holes as required by law."

Fargo Call: Cass and Clay counties may not have coal beds, but that they have something as good for some pur poses is being demonstated by the Hughes Electric company. The refuse from the flax fiber mill is being burned at the electric light plant and has been found, all things considered, to be more economical than coal. The Hughes Electric company say that they prefer to burn it because it will furnish employ ment for six or seven men, and because it is a product of Cass and Clay counties thus keeping the money which would otherwise go east for coal right here at home. In this way our own product is being transformed into heat, light and power, which is distributed all over the city. Huge loads of the refuse is being hauled from the fiber mill to the electric light plant daily. SOflE HINTS To Reduce the Lumber Bill, and the Secret to Have Healthy Chickens. The farmers count amongst their heav iest expenses to run the farm the lumber bill. It is therefore of interest to them to learn of a medium that will at least reduce their expenses to half their first cost. This medium is "CARBOLINEUM AVENARIUS" a paint that will, without question .protect their shingle roofs, fence posts, silos, granaries, agricultural imp lements, windmill towers, etc., and all woodwork, above or below ground and water, against rot and decay, and also prevent shrinking, warping, and crack ing of the wood, which can never be accomplished with oilpaints. The "CAR BOL,INEUM AVENARIUS" is applied with a brush and imparts a very nice nutbrown color to the wood, and is far cheaper than linseed oil paints on account of its large covering capacity. "CARBOLINEUM AVENARIUS', is also a radical remedy against chicken lice and mites, which kill thousands of chickens annually. One coat of "CARBOLINEUM AVENARIUS". ap plied to the inside walls of the henhouses will exterminate them forever, and ex penses for sulphur, kerosin, whitewash, insect-powder, etc., are saved, and the disagreeable work of cleaning the stable every month is done away with. Testimonials of thirty years' experien as well as circulars, are mailed by the CARBOLINEUM WOOD-PRESERVING CO., Milwaukee, Wis. free of charge to any address in the United States, and it will certainly pay you to investigate their claims and become a customer of "CAR BOLINEUM AVENARIUS".

General Washburn Issues Another Cir cular Calling Attention to Mis souri Slope Lands. General W. D. Washburn is still active in his work of locating settlers along the Missouri slope and has issued another circular descriptive of his lands. The circular shows a picture of the new ele vator at Wilton and contains letters from various of the Iowa farmers who have visited this section regarding their im pression of the country. There is also the following statement with reference to immigration to North Dakota: During the year 1899 over 11,000 set tlers located on lands along the various railway lines in North Dakota. About one-third of this number moved thejr families upon them during the season. The most of the remainder made some improvements upon their lands and will move their families in the spring. The bulk of this immigration was to the cen tral part of the state,- along the present lines of railway, so that lands havo in creased from §4 and 85 to 810 and 812 per acre, and in most localities where the land was extra good it has been mostly taken up from eight to twelve miles back from the railway. Never in the history of immigration has there been such a movement of well-to-do, intelligent farm ers as has poured into and taken posses sion of the fertile lands of North Dakota, and the majority have not been inexper ienced foreigners, but farmers of intelli gence and experience from adjoining states, who investigated and found that North Dakota lands at 85 an acre would produce _as much or more than lands held at 850 an acre in Iowa and Illinois. They also found that in inanv instances settlers had paid for their farms with one year's crop. They found a good cli mate, good water, live people and an excellent school system, and they bought land and are moving in by thousands. This year 20,000 new families will move into the state and settle on lands, and the year 1900 will without doubt go down in history as the banner year for North Dakota immigration. After years of waiting the state of North Dakota is about to take rank as one of the best agricultural states in the union. Several letters are published from Iowans, and one instance is cited thus: Mr. D. B. Schwab, formerlv of Perry, Dallas county, Iowa, in a letter dated January 4,1900, tells of the visit of a party of Iowa farmers to the W. D. Washburn lands in Burleigh and Mc Lean counties, North Dakota. Ho says when he started ho was somewhat preju diced against these lands but he wanted to see for himself. Among his compan ions were a party of ten who joined them at Coon Rapids, Iowa. Thev drove from Bismarck to Wilton, 27 miles, the last days of December, 1899. They visited the coal mines two miles from Wilton and "the crowd all went down in the mine aud examined for themselves," he says, "and that settled the fuel question, for there area great number of mines with an everlasting amount of good coal just as good as any coal ruined in Iowa, and good enough for a king to burn. We got to find out while in Wil ton that it makes a good fire, too. Be sides, in addition to this coal there is plenty of wood along the Missouri river, about' six miles from Wilton." Mr' Schwab tells of a visit to the home of M. Spangborg near Wilton, who was plied with questions for about two hours while two girls got dinner for the crowd. (A picture of the Spangberg farm is on the folder.) "Mr. Spangberg was form erly an Iowa man," he continues, "who came to North Dakota nine years ago without any money, and now has lots of cattle and horses and 800 acres of good land, as good a house as the average dwelling in Iowa, very nicelv fixed in side, and a better library than I ever saw in a farm house in Iowa. He is well educaced and it looks as if he was giving his family the same advantages. This same evening there came an old lady and her daughters from South Da kota looking for land. I have forgotten her name, but I understand she intended to buy a large tract of land. She had just returned from Alaska and she was as shrewd as any man. Some of the boys said on the train coming up that they thought they were getting out of society and away from the good people when they got here, but they left with a different view. The people around Wilton could be no better I was doubly paid for my trip and I* do not think there was a man in the crowd that was dissdtisfled or sorry that he came. I do wish that more of the poor Dallas county renters would take hold of this and look into the matter. I am afraid that some of the people that are going elsewhere will wish thev had come and seen. I think that the time is not far distant when land will sell in this county for $25 and 830 an acre. We have just as good land and raise just as good crops and take more dollars off an acre of ground than the farmers in 'old Dallas. I was surprised myself, as thev are selling corn raised right in North Dakota at Bismarck." Health Guarantee. Get a bottie of Hostetter's Stomach Bitters from any druggist.
