LIST Of PRIZES FOR FAIR Harvest Festival To Be a Great Thing tor This Communi ty. Wibaux Merchants Have Donated Liberally. The premium list for the Har-1 vest Festival has now been com pleted and after reading it over one will readily see that the Wi baux merchants have contribut ed liberally for prizes. This will be turned into a county fair next year and it was the aim of the citizens to donate merchan dise prizes as much as possible. The Wibaux merchants have al ways come to the front in mat ters of this kind and the premi-! urn list herein advertised is a dandy and is much better than advertised by some of the larger fairs. Pickering & Rucker, E. D. Baker, Mehr & Evans, Nelson & Cowee, Schuster & Enderle, have donated cash for the pur-1 chase of a registered, pure bred Poland China boar, which will be given for the alfalfa display as described in the premium list. These gentlemen are to be comp limented upon making it possi ble to give such a good prize and the farmer winning this prize will have something that is very valuable. Mr. Taylor was able to secure this animal from the Experimental Station at Boze man, at a big reduction in price, if it could be arranged to give the animal as a prize, so the above gentlemen came to the front and purchased the animal to give for the alfalfa display, and it will tend to get the farm ers into raising more alfalfa in the years to come. All exhibits should be brought in the day before the Festival and placed in the Club house, where the grain and vegetable exhibit will be displayed, but if it is not possible to bring them in the day before, they must be on the ground very early. The date is October, 10th, and every body should come in and help celebrate.

Usually there are a number of days during the fall months when work in the field must be suspended on ne count of rain. While you are waiting for things to dry up again why not utilize these odd hours to a good advantage? Put your man or men to work on the silo, for it is well to get the concrete ring in j before freezing weather. As soon as this ring or base has set, you ! can commence digging the hole. ; The first five or six feet can be | snoveled out very handily; but af ter that some apparatus for hoist ing the dirt must he used, so ar ! range this and have it ready to use - To wait until next spring or l summer to dig it not only means added expense for the same work, but also brings you face to face the same old problem of too many (otner things to do. Maybe you have forgotten how busy you were last summer and your good reso lutions to start the silo this fall. | Now'is the time to fulfil those | promises by commencing active | cc nst ruction. ! You will be surprised to find | how many days during the fall and winter months can be used for I tliis particular work and how quickly these scattered days will ! result in your having a completed silo,—I. C, Taylor, County Agri , culturist. Edgehill Doings Of Interest Aniia Novak of Wibaux was vis-! ing at her home Sunday. Big Art Schuster was visiting in this part of the county Sunday. Joe Novak finished shoek-thresh ing Saturday and is laid up a few days for repairs. Mable Auderaon has been help ing Mrs. Kinsey cook for thresh ers, little Miss Eva acting as head waitress. E. A. Nyman is going to build an extra room outo his house. Of course, this is not surprising, jud ging by the pa'li across the field, Ray Harper, E. A. Nyman in company with the Misses Mable Anderson and Ella Quale, were plum picking in the bad lands on last Sunday. Harry Warner, who hits been staying with the Quale Bros. Or the past year, left for Carrington, N. D., to thresh the rest of the fall. Recent Land Office Decisions A decision was handed down last week by the Secretary the Interior, in the contest Alzona Kendall vs Elisha Bovee, affirming the decision of Commissioner's Office, award ing the right to enter 320 acres to the defendant Elisha Bovee, or his heirs. The Plaintiff was represented by attorney Felt Glendive, and Attorney Fisher of this place, handled the de fense. The case has been in igation for about five years and has been followed with much terest by the friends of both parties. Both parties have different times been in possession of the land in dispute, and little trouble has arisen out the dispute. With this decision from the Secretary of the Inter ior the case is closed, after number of appeals by the par ties, and the land is awarded Victoria Bovee, widow of defendant. Robert Caldwell, who made settlement several years ago on section 3G in the township west of Wibaux, was rejoiced receive a decision thru his torney, last week, confirming his entry to 320 acres in the said school section. While the right to 320 acres was general the Department ruling did not rec ognize the right of a settler more than a quarter-section school land, and the final proof of Mr. Caldwell, on his 320 acre homestead was not approved for this reason. Attorney Fisher handled the case for Mr. Cald well, and the decision comes from the General Land Office Washington CASE HAS BEEN APPEALED We are informed that the con test of Richardson vs Richard son, a decision of which from the local land office, was announc ed a week ago, will be appealed and it is probable that a long time will elapse before this mat ter finally will be settled; and that only a decision from the of fice of the Secretary of the In terior will finally settle the re spective rights of the claimants.
