LUCE, Jlope, North Dakota, £4* xstm 7-* 1 .* TANKJCEE. Gen. Bailey, "Tank Kee," gave a series of three lectures on China, in this city last Thursday, b'riday and Saturday nights, at the Opera House. The lecturcs are said to be very interesting and instructive. His large dis play of curios are said to be great. His audiences were some what small, however. The first night the crowd numbered about sixty, Friday night somewhere around SO, and Saturday night, owing to the fact -that the ladies did some good hustling during the afternoon selling tickets, the crowd was somewhat larger. We were pleased to learn that the ladies d'd not lose on the deal. We understand they guaranteed Mr. Bailey $50 and expenses.. Hew Diug Firm. 'i A deal was closed last Friday whereby, O. L. McDonnell dis poses of the Star Drug store stock to Messrs. Johnson & Everson, of Lyle, Minn. .The members of the new firm are both strangers in the city. They, are very pleasant gentlemen to meet and will more than likely make a big. change in the store, as we understand the store room is to fce enlarged somewhat. New Woodman Rale. Rock'Is'and, 111.. Argus: .The committee on readjustment of rates -of Modern Woodmen of America, appointed by authority of the St, Paul head camp, today appeared before the executive council alt the present session in Rock Island and submitted a plan of rate which was approved and ordered to be publ shed this month in the official paper of the society, and which is subject to the head camp at Indianapolis, in 1903 The report, which is consider ed a masterly document, clearly shows the necessity* of reabjust ment. and offers a plan indorsed by the leading actuaries of the United States and well fitted to the conditions of a great fratern ity like the Modern Woodmen of America.. The executive council deem it best not give to the pub lic tha nature of this repor: until it appears in full in the Moder Woodman, the official organ of the sqciety. o' The committee on rate adjust ment is composed of George W. Clark, of Topeka, Kansas W. H. Thompson, of Grand Island, Neb. J. J. Thompson, of Bloomington, 111. F.H. Cummimgs, of Grand Rapods, Mich., and H. S. Oliver, of Lisbon. N. D. For the past two-.montlis the members have been in session in various places ill this state ana Indiana and they have made a most exhaustive re search, covering insurance bod ies of all descriptions, and. the peculiarities presented by the Modern Woodmen. They have had the advice and assistance of the best actuarial experts of the day and the table they have pre pared has been considered from every stand point. It is to be published and distributed among the members of the order so that its provisions will be known to every Woodman when it comes up for consideration at the fet ing of the head camp in 1903. •"\N •v a.'**?*" L^c- HOPE. NORTH-DAKOTA, JAN. 3O. 1902. 5-SCHOOL NOTES. There was no school in the High School rooh\ last Monday morrting, on account of the cold. A number of the pupils in the different rooms a^e troubled with severe colds. x\ Howard Boise has returned to school, after a two week's ab sence on account V)f illness. Blake Dawdv was a visitor to 4.he High School room Tuesday aft'crnocn. Rev. E. S. Shaw, of Fargo, visited the High School last Mon day morning. Mr. Shaw com plimented the 9th Grade Latin Class very highly'^ saying that it was the tanner class of the state. Needless to eay4the class feels highly, elated oyer the compli ment and will try to merit it always. Just fere it may be said that the pupils are always glad to see the parents visit an would feel encourage if thy parents would make it a point io visit the schools much more frequently. Try it and see. MisS Curtis' room is quite crowded, but some new seats have been ordered, which will help out quite materially. The schools were given a ha'f holiday last Friday afternoon, to enable them to Tank Kee and hear his lecture on "The BD S and Cirls of China," Friday is the last school cay in January—'.he fifth school month. Only four months left, bovs. Second-Class Mail. President Roosevelt's state ment to Chairman Loud of th.c houtie postoffice committee, in re gard to the abolishment of the abuses in fecondclass mail mat ter, will be gratifying reading to the public. A powerful lobby is gathering in Washington for- the purpose of bringing about a re consideration of the action of the postcffice department in cutting off from the privileges of second class mail matter, serial novels and other such publications never intended by congress to have such privilages. But they rekoned without President Roos evelt. He said iri iiis annual mes sage that the postoffice depart ment "should be sustained in its efforts to remove these abuses." That seems to have been over looked. But wh^n Mr. Loud went to the White House to talk with the president jon this sub ject, and to express the hope that there would be no backward steps taken, the president very emphatically assured him that he need have no fear. As to cut ting off these abuses, the presi dent declared^ that it was "the policy of the administration.'' and that he would do all he could to see that it was carried out. There is no reason to believe that Mr. Payne, who is to suc ceed Mr. Smith-'.as post master general, has any different view on this question than has the present head of the ostoffice de partment. There is no proba bility that congress .vill interfere with a reform which will save the government, when carried in to full effect, $24,594,235 annual ly. No bill could become a law without the approval of the presi dent, and that could not be cured.—Philadelphia Press. v',"-/s,7N ""v se- ANNOUNCEMENT. We have purchased the machinery business of Geo.

The Nal'onal Temperance Society has received a. check for $2,000 from Andrew Caregie. In Jersey City recently a pro minent candy and fruit dealer was arrested for selling rum till ed chocolate drops to children. It had been noticed that children, who bought the candy on their way to school, were stupid and dull in the class room. Investi gation showed thev were intoxi cated.
