The Peter Westerlund sale at Dag

There was a jam present, people com
ing from all over the county. Every
thing offered brought good prices,
The sale was advertised in the Pro
ducers News which insured its suc
cess from the beginning. The Pro
ducers News has the largest circula
tion of any paper of Sheridan county
by a large margin and the bulk of the
subscribers are farmers. That's the
reason that sales advertised in the
Producers News gets the crowd.

ing spells. It is expected that the al
lies will soon join in asking. Holland to
expel Wilhelm, offering him the
choice of returning to the German
frontier or surrendering to the enten
frontier or surendering to the entente.
Wilhelm seldom goes outside of the
castle gardens. During one of his
first walks an interned German soldiei
refused to salute. An explanation
was demanded. The soldier silently
produced a small red flag. The at
tendant was asked if he knew the
former kaiser stood -before him.
'Damn the Hohenzollerns," said he,
'six of my brothers died for them.'"
¥Wilhelm has taken no walks since
then, riding in closed automobiles.
Bismarck, N. D., Dec. 5.--On the
face of the official county abstracts of
vones from all but Morton and Mc
Lean counties the ten proposed con
stitutional amendments have secured
unbeatable majorities of all votes cast
at the general election. The abstracts
were opened tbefore the state canvass
ing board at its meeting today.
No Official Computation
While neither the secrtary of state
nor the canvassing board have at
tempted to compute the totals, a
Courier-News representative was able
to get the following figures from the
available eturns from 51 counties.
The total number of male votes was
$6,958. Assuming that the majority
of this number or 43,480 is necessary
to win, this is how the ten measures
turned the trick: No. one 56,572; No.
two 60,407; No. three 69,436; No. four
49,218; No. five 32,519; No. six 43,753;
No. seven 44,254; No. eight 58,702;
No. nine 43,697, and No. ten 44,182.
Awaiting Soldier Vote
The canvassing board has agreed to
adjourn from day to day for a suffi
cient length of time to allow the sol
dier vote to be canvassed. Meetings
must be held daily and adjourned in
order to meet the provisions of the
law. The soldiers vote which has been
variously estimated up to 15,000 is
extremely light. It is doubtful if more
than 500 soldiers have sent in their
ballots. On the returns now in the
secretary of state's hands less than
100. have voted. Burleigh county
which has 750 soldiers in the service
polled seven such votes, Rollette coun
ty six, and Richland county 1.
Governor Frazier, the league candi
dates, and the ten amendments se
cured majorities in the Golden state.
