His Daughter Eloped.
A daughter aged 19 of Editor Funk of the Spirit Lake Beacon recently eloped and married a boy of 18. Instead of getting riled or excited over the matter, Bro. Funk takes the affair phil osophically and refers to it in the following vein: "The bride has been knowN to the beacon since along back in the eighties, when she came into the family. She is neither bril liant nor beautiful. (How good it seems not to have to lie about the bride.) On her mother's side she is excellently connected and her father has tried to live down a political past. The groom is the only son of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas A Way, of Mason City. He has lived a life so exempelary that we know of only one mean thing he ever did, but he has plenty of time to wipe this out and become as good a man as his father-in-law. It was a quiet wedding. The noise all came later when the abiquitous report er got busy. The bride was not elegantly gowned, but it was her own fault. Friends were releiv ed of the more or less onerous duty of putting up an array of wedding presents, to balance ac counts of many years standing with the families of the contract ing parties. Having never been married before, and keeping out of range of practical advice this feature was overlooked. The father did not give the bride away and he will not now. The youthful groom will have to take his chances, and he seems dis posed to do so with sublime cour age and surpassing confidence. Mr. and Mrs. Clyde Way will live at Mason City, making fre quent visits, it is hoped, at the Spirit Lake home, where it is be lieved a son has been gained rather than a daughter lost."— Martin County(Minn.) Sentinel. Princely Rank in Germany. Count von Bulow, the German chan cellor, hdvlng been raised to the rank of "furst," or prince, as was Bismarck, a writer comments on tfye title as fol lows: "Prince Bulow, like Prince Bis marck, sounds very grand, and 'even regal, but 'prince' is only an exagger ated translation of 'furst,' which Is etymologlcally the same word as our 'first.' In England, as well as in Ger many, the relative rank of 'furst* is only 'marquis,' as may be inferred from the fact that on his dismissal Bismarck was offered the title of 'duke' of L,auenburg, which would have been no compliment to him .at all had not the rank of a 'herzog,' or 'dulce, been superior to that of a 'furst,' or prince." Golden Hue in Butter. Consumers of butter at Springfield, Mass., who have recently noticed the unwonted golden hue of the article, are puzzled over one dealer's state ment that an unusual crop of dande lions in Vermont and western Massa chusetts Is responsible for it, and the explanation of a less poetic dealer that it is probably due to a greater use of coloring matter by the dairymen. 0NT can be secured by wearing one of our $ 2 0 suits, made to our measure by the celebrated erchant Tailors CARL JOSEPH & O A N O I A O Perfed ityle, fit and work- A yhmning array of over 400 pattern to select from.

Pure Bred Stock Sale There will be held in Fargo, Wed nesday, November 8th. one of the largest sales of pure bred stock ever held in North Dakota. It will be con ducted under the auspices of the North Dakota Live Stock Association, whose qbjcct is to aid the breeders in selling their stock and to assist the farmer who is looking- for a registered bull or sire oi any of the different classes vf OTTO YOUNGBERG, stock, and, to assist those who wish to buy females to get a start breeding pure breds. 25 Short-horns, 19 Aberdeen-Angus, 14 Herevords. and 3 Galloways will be sold to the highest bidder. In addi dition to the cattle to be sold 40 Po land China hog's will be offered, con sisting of 28 boars of serviceable age and 12 gihs. Farmers who wish to buy a boar tor use this fall and some sows to start a "food herd should not miss this le. This number that is to be sold will give the buyer a great change for selection. The cattle in this sale are choice selections from the leading herds of the state. The bulls are all of service able age or will be by next spring. This is the time to buy the bull you wish to use next spring if you are ob liged to buy as it is not good policy to wait and buy just before you wish to use them. The females are young and all of breeding age are bred to good sires. There are several good cows of each breed with calves at foot. There never was a better time to go into the production of pure bred cattle as you can buy your start with a moderate sum at present and the op portunity will not last long as cattle are going to increase in value from now on. Remember the hogs are to be sold in the morning at 9:30 and the cattle at 1:00 P. M. A fare and One-third has beeii grant ed by the railroads, good November 7th with a return limit of Nov.* 9th.

D. 31,000 Tons Advertising It is given out on what appears to be good authority that the great Chicago department store Sears, Roebuck & Co., has made a contract with the paper mill company at Lady smith, Wis., tp take the entire print paper out put of the mill for two years and a half. The mill is turning out 35 tons of that kind of paper every day, so 31,000 tons of paper has been contracted for. This enormous quantity of paper will be used in printing the cata logues and other advertising matter of the company. This paragraph will furnish the local merchant with food for reflection. It shows wha-. the most success ful mercantile establishment in the World is (ioing in one branch of its department of publicity. But these bare figures do not convey much to the average per son. An idea of the magnitude of the business can perhaps be gained when it is known that 31, 000 tons ol! pv.nt paper would be sufficient to run the 600 weekly papers in Minnesota for 50 years. —Royaiton.

Fargo realty men have been In southern Richland county through the district recently visited by Expert Snow and pronounced by him free from black rust. R. B. Blakemore and Morgan Page, who investigated the situation, disagree with Snow and insist that there are pronounced evi dences of rust in the territory. They brought home samples which indicate stem rust. The rust is plainly in evi dence on the stem near the heads of some of the stalks. The wheat is still In the milk stage and only the most favorable weather can give much of a crop in that section, according to the investigators. Richland county is In southeastern North Dakota, just the Minnesota border line. Real Estate Transfers.
