Both banks have suspended busi

SUED BY COUNTY
GET BUSY TO SAVE COUNTY'S
MONEY AT ROUNDUP, MON
TANA — BONDSMEN MAKING
TRANSFER OF PROPERTY.
Roundup, Nov. 21.—Attaching all
property in the county of record in
their names and alleging fraud in re
cent transfers of title with the pur-1
pose of avoiding an obligation, suit
filed by County Attorney C. F. Huppe
against bondsmen of the Citizens
State bank who guaranteed county
depositg in that institution.
With the proceedings were filed long
lists of property held by the bonds
men, or transferred by them since
the closing of the bank, including
property attached last week by the
county for recove, v on us deposit.
To Press Surety Firms
Surety companies whose bonds are |
held by the county for deposits up to |
$25,000 also are to be brought into
court unless payment on the bonds is
made, and it is understood that Mr.
Huppe will also ask that county de
posits in both the Citizens State and
the First National Bank be declared a
preference claim under a supreme
court decision which recently held
state deposits m a failed bank were.
rightly entitled to this classification.
The total amount of the. county de
posit at the time the Citizens State
bank closed is given in the complaint
as $70,074.81, and recovery of this
amount is sought together witn inter
est at the rate of X per cent pei an
num. In addition to the two surety
company bonds held by the county, j
covering deposits up to $25,000, there
are three personal bonds, guarantee
ine- denosits from $25 000 to $250 000
mg deposits from »Wto S.hU,UJO.
r, j . y ~ - "î ,
Records in the offices of the county
clerk and recorder show that several
of the bondsmen have made numer
ous transfers of prop.3rty since the
closing of the bank and that other
property held by them ha« been mort
gaged. In other instances declara
tions of homesteads have been filed,
supposedly to avert possible loss
through attachment proceedings, and
these are the transactions alleged to
be fraudulent in the complaint filed
by the county attorney.
It is said that a hearing of the
case is not expected at the forthcom

calendar for* which has already been
set. but that institution of the suits
will prevent further transfer« or the

N. D. AGRICULTURAL
TRAINEES OF THE U.S.
More than 40 disabled ex-service
men have been placed on small farms
in North Dakota under the direction
of the U. S. Veterans Bureau and
they have come through the past sea
son with more than fair success ac
cording to reports.
The disabled men who are given vo
cational training on small farms which
they have bought on their individual
responsibility are assisted by instruc
tors from the North Dakota Agricul
tural college under contract with the
Veterans Bureau. They visit each
trainee every two weeks to give him
instruction and advice concerning all
his farming operations. The Veter
ans Bureau plan provides a
for operating each farm as to crop
ping, improvements, and similar mat
ters, and the instructors assist the
men in carrying this through. Each
farm and family is managed on a
budget plan worked out, in each case,
by the Bureau and the trainee to
gether. This reduces all operations
to a systematic basis, and insures
regular and steady progress.
An agricultural expert declares that
"successful land development where
the settler has only a small working
capital depends upon four things:
good land, reasonable price, long time
payments at a low rate of interest,
good farming methods,
add good health and unceasing dili
gence on the part of the farmer.
These trainees in vocational agri
culture receive from $80 to $100 per
month, with additional allowances for
wives and children, as training pay.
for a period of 30 months at the end
They will, as a rule, be in training
of which time they will be well estab
lished on their own farms, and can
safely be declared rehabilitated.
