cases were taken up and disposed of in
short order.

erty was not moved, as he escaped
from the county jail and the charge
against him is still pending.
The charge against Ahmed Ameen,

District Meeting of Woman's
Mesdames McCartney, Walton, Bush,
Huffman, Foot and Wright represented
the Woman's Club of Oakes at the dis
trict meeting of the Federation of
Woman's Clubs held at Ellendale Tues
day. In the absence of Mrs. Filshie,
the district president, Mrs. Canfield of
Fullerton presided. The Ellendale Club
had a very nice program for the occa
sion. The address of welcome was
made by Mrs. D. T. Youker and the
response by Mrs. J. W. Bush of Oakes.
The visitors were royally entertained.
A splendid dinner at the Dickey and
the banquet in the evening served at
the home of Mrs. Bergendahl was the
kind for which Ellendale is so well
known. The visitors were also treated
to auto rides about the city.
Messrs. McCartney and Huffman
took the ladies over in autos and then
hiked for the day to the cool shades of
Taylor's grove, where the Woodmen
were enjoying their picnic.
Minnesota Lakes.
From the psssenger department of
the Northern Pacific Railway comes a
very attaactive booklet under the title
of "Minnesota Lakes." The cover is
of a rich buff shade with title in red
and black lettering. The central de
sign, in four colors, shows a young man
and maiden enjoying hugely the pleas
ure of a birch bark canoe on the placid
surface of a lake. The inside of the
book is pleasantly executed in a soft
sepiatone and the illustrations, of which
there is at least one to every page, are
most excellent. One cannot read the
book without being thoroughly im
pressed with the fact that the so-called
"Lake-Park Region" of Minnesota is a
very enjoyable section for a summer
outing. Copies of th3 book may be ob
tained upon application to A. M. Clel
and, General Passenger Agent, North
ern Pacific Ry., St. Paul.

Senator Hansbrough Comes
Back at Political Detracters
in Stinging Letter.
The Machine Fears a Combin
ation of Marshall-Gronna
Hansbrough Interests.
Marshall denied ever having made such
a statement. And Mr. Hansbrough
shows, in his letter, his understanding
of the impulse and motive of the trick,,
and then proceeds to show up the
machine in this state and in Washing
ton in no uncertain manner. Knowing
as much as he does about the inner
workings of that ring, his statements'
will be received with unusual attention
and as they are in perfect alignment
with the idea generally formed through
out the state, they will clinch and con-.
firm in the popular mind all that has
gone before. This is Mr. Hansbrough's
letter, as published in the Searchlight:
