Bker, HAS COLONY FOR PACIFIC New York, Dec. 21,-Five hun dred Americans, Germans, Irish, Swedes and Russians, including clergymen, butchers, salesmen, bookkeepers, stenographers, prin ters and carpenters, will leave New York on the 15th of next month for San Francisco. There will be sailors in the party, too, for the 500 are to go away from that port in a bark to seek homes in the South Pacific ocean, or rather in one of the islands that dot portions of it. Back of the expedition is Elmer S. Prather, president of the Modern Science Publishing company. Mr. Prather is a sociologist. Last June, it seems, becoming convinced that the wage-earner was gradually becom ing weaker as the "trust" and the combination were growing stronger, he decided to start a South Sea col ony. So he discussed -' matter with friends and then ,arted to carry out plan, with result that up to date 478 members have been ac cepted. Only $300 is required to participate in the enterprise, the en tire amount to be put into a conm mon fund to institute a co-operative colony in some island in the South Pacific. When the proper island is found every one will settle down to busi ness. Everyone who can will be ex pected to work six houis a day. al though every one may have four weeks' vacation a year. The colony will be non-sectarian and the farm of government that of a republic, with a president elected every year. HFe will choose his cabinet, but there will be no secretary of war. Shred Sad cocoanut will be the chief pro luct of the colony, but the members may make a try at tobacco raising nd other crops suitable to the cli nate. AS TO A MOTHER-IN-LAW New York, Dec. 22.-Wiliam Davis, a big, good-natured cloth cut ter, of Broc.lyn had his pretty black eyed wife. Bessie, in the Ewen street court today on a summox,s. "I don't want to give Bessie any ;rouble, your honor," said the hus band, "but I'd like a little advice. We've been married five years and we've got a nice little baby. But my wife makes me give her all my wages and she makes me scrub the floors and do a lot of things like that. "When I kick, she threatens to go back to her mother and take the baby with her. Every little while my mother-in-law comes around and stirs up trouble. Now, what should I do?" "Here's what you do," said Magis trate O'Reilly. "Don't scrub the floors: (Applause from the audi ence.) "Don't give your wife all the money. (Loud cheers). "If your mother-in-law butts in, throw her out." (Tremendous burst of cheers). Magistrate O'Reilly is a batchelor. "FIFTY YEARS OF PROGRESS." The Farmer of St. Paul for De. cember 1st celebrates its twenty fifth anniversary with a "Fifty Years of Progress" edition, taking into account the fiftieth anniversary of M:rnesota which occurs in 1908. This interesting and valuable num ber of The Farmer takes up the ag ricultural progress of the state in the past fifty years, illustrated with some of the early scenes throughout the Northwest. Jas.

PRINTING GRAFT AIRED AGAIN Publicity Turned Upon Very Questionable Methods. - - Monitor's Searchlight Seeks Out the County Grafters. Maverick of Dawson County Proves to the Public That He Still Carries the Same Disfiguring Brand. - - Citizens Must Swallow Nauseous Graft Dose. Those who perused the picturesque vaporings of the wonderful -Calf of Dawson County in the last issue of his mammoth hot air distributer mi-li," possibly come to the conclusion that the unsightly brand which has disfig ured his winter covering for so long is at least beginning to "hair over" and become a thing of the past as far as the record of it is concerned in the of fice of the state register of brands. But such seems to be far from the case after an experienced "puncher" has camped on his trail for awhile. The aforesaid puncher is duly equip ped with a choice selection of lariats, and is experienced in the use of them, so it is safe to predict that the mav erick will soon be brought back again to the corral of hi. rightful owner, and have the proper brand applied again by those in charge of the herd. First, we will take up briefly the statement of the -Calf, that he was under no obligations to complete the printing contract of John R. Stout, when he purchased the Review plant, but had voluntarily done so at a loss. Any visitor to the court house can at once verily the falsity of these re marks. For some time past the -Calf has refused in many cases to order printing material for the courty offi cers, and the same officers have been compelled to order the material them selves. A little further riding by the "puncher" disclosed the main reason why Metcalf had refused to order the same. Letters were discovered from several wholesale printing establish ments informing the vociferous -Calf that he would have to produce more shekels of the realm in payment for former work ordered before any more would be sent out. Simple isn't it, dear readers, when one considers? As a few samples of the liberal al lowance.. of fodder which Commission ers Meadors and Mullendore allowed the -Calf at the last session, we will simply quote the following instances of some of the extremely extortionate items allowed to go through: On sev eral whole sheet forms, the price for rnerly allowed was $2 for the first 100; the price allowed under new contract Stevens is in a position to speak of ficlally and with authority on the subject to which he has given much careful study. President Northrop of the Uni versity of Minnesota contributes a valuable article upon the education al development of the state which will not fail to be read with interest and profit. Oliver Dalrymple, the original bo nanza wheat farmer of North Da kota furnishes a most interesting story of the purchase and develop mnent of his great wheat farm near Castleton, N. D., which is part of 75,000 acres he, with others, origi n.olly bought. The Secretary of Agriculture, Mr. Wilson, sends a cordial message to The Farmer. A. W. Trow, Clarence Wedge, J. J. Furlong and other well known agricultural authorities have some thing to say; each one along his par ticular line of work in dairy, horti mUt rne MW gen" :tarmning. II1#~(JI·o # the wi!l be $10 for the first 100, giving the -Calf a clear profit of $8 per 100 on every 100 ordered for the price of a i-cent stamp. The price formerly al lowed for assessment books was $28.20 each. At this session Metcalf pre sented a bill for $45 for one of these assessment bcoks, and the board al lowed him: $39. Doesn't that look like carrying out the terms of the old contract as he claims? We think to the ordinary reader it will seem as if the -Calf had probably secured an overdose of fodder and was suffering with windy colic. We have figures in this office which give the price of these same assessment books at $20 each, wholesale. One more example we think will suffice. The price formerly allowed for a form of one-eighth sheet was 25 cents per hundred. The price now allowed is $1.67. Does this look like highway robbery or simply lack of intelligence? The public has the privilege of choosing. A recent ship ment of books of the value of $200, which the -Calf ordered, the company refused to send, and the county was compelled to guarantee it. Going on, the -Calf remarks that the contract was given to him for the reason that he had the best equipped office. Having the equipment and us ing it are two different matters. When this same Review office received the contract for last year's Fair cata logue, it was finally necessary to have the work finished at Billings. The last telephone list that the -Calf received he had printed at Livingston. Al though the Review ofice has a linotype machine, the financial stringency of the combination does not perniit of the hiring of a competent operator. Scarcely any paper stock is usually to be found on hand in the corral of the -Calf, making it necessary to bor row from both the other local offices. Stereotyped plates, ink, and other material also follow the same route regularly, from the Independent office to that of the Review. More and more anon, dear readers, when the -Calf again escapes from his corral. full of matter of interest and con c rn to farmers which makes it the finest and best contribution to agri cultural literature ever published in the Northwest. This December 1st double number of The Farmer will sell on news stands for ten cents, but we have made an arrangement with the pub lishers whereby any reader of this paper may secure it by sending a !two cent stamp and mention The Yellowstone Monitor. Address The Farmer, St. Paul, Minn. N. B. The Farmer is published twice a month, has more subscribers than any other Northwestern farm paper and contains more reading matter. The subscription price is 50 cents a year, but we will send The Farmer with The Monitor, both one year, (new cr renewal) for only two dollars. Chicago has exempted baby carri ages from its new wheel tax. This should create a healthay demand for ba b.ls for auto.n.z e i.se.
