Warner gaye them a genuine surprise party as a celebration for their thirtieth wedding anniversary, and a most enjoyable evening was passed by those present. Mr. I. W. Stand ly presented the Hostess with a handsome pearl ring, and the Host a pearl shirt stud in behalf of those present, and was very 'happy and clever in his remarks. The Host and Hostess respond ing with great feeling thereby showing their appreciation. A lunch was served and all de parted with many well wishes and happy returns of the day to Mr. and Mrs. Warner. The following editoral from the Grand Forks Evening Times of January 7th is one that should be read by every member of the Republican party. Nineteen Hundred and Ten is a political year in North Dakota, and while the Times has so far refrained from a discussion of politics and politicians, it recog nize the fact that during the next few months the people of the state will be interested in party issues and nominations. North Dakota has a primary election law for the purpose of selecting candidates for the var ious state and county offices as well as candidates for members of the United States senate, and both the letter and the spirit of the law is that those who aspire to positions on the party ticket1 shall submit themselves to the party voters and aQier having had their claims passed upon, to sub mit willingly and enthusiastically to the majority rule. Unfortun ately in the past the spirit of the law has been violated and factions have developed in the majority party. The Times believes that the occasion is at hand when the Republican party should rise above personal preferences and Actional choices and unite upon a common ground for the the nom ination and election of a Republi can ticket. It must recognized by all Re publicans that party supremacy is paramount to factional victory. As Republicans we can not shut our eyes to the results and differ ences within the party of the state Let us not deceive ourselves longer. After the primaries we muBt meet the common enemy in the November election. The things said and done in the heat and passion of the primary have had their effect in the election so far as they are done within the party. It does seem that all Re publicans can unite in the con duct of a clean, manly campaign devoid of personal abuse and vit uperation and so conducted that when the ticket ip selected every one can support it with honor to himself and with enthusiasm for the party. Would such a course with a Republican victory not be more gratifying to the party than a different one with party defeat? Would that not be carrying both the letter and spirit of the prim ary election law? The primary campaign can be conducted in such a manner that this result will follow. Let every Republican who desires to be come a candidate announce him self as a Republican and not as belonging to any faction of the party. Let the voters insist up on each one conducting his cam paign in a clean and honorable manner. Let them understand that mud-slinging will be resent ei, and it will be found that the candidacies will be presented up on their merits and in the gener al election there will be no quot ing by the opposition of the charges and counter charges made in the primaries. In adopting this course no one need feel that he is giving more than he gets, for it is merely the the abandonment of a course in which all have been equally guilty. It would be in the nature of the old time experience -meet ing that preceeded a sweep ing revival. We believe that the party is growing tired of internal strife and that all will welcome •an opportunity to unite and give the state a Republican majority that will ring from one end of the land to the other. Illustrated Stereopticon Lecture in the Methodist Church Tuesday Jan. 18th. The Rev. Wm. R. Leslieof Joliet, 111., says: "He not only shows pictures that are good in themselves but he pours forth such a torrent of fascinating de scriptions and explanations as to fairly make the views he shows real living scenes. He not only instructs and entertains but he inspires by his earnestness so that one leaves his presence feel ing that he has gained a higher ideal of living." W. C. T.U. (Continued from last week.) Miss Cora Stoddard, of Boston, another American deligate and sec retary of the Scietific Temperance Federation, also devoted to the same subject, her address which was the first paper of the Congress. In it she dwelt upon the important rela tions of such instruction in the schools to national progress^ She put for ward the,benefit derived by a number of countries through tne adoption of of such a plan as proof that it should become uniyersial. The United States, according to the report, made an unusually good showing in its exhibit. Germany also also was to the fore with a particularly fine collection of colored charts show ing the effect of alcohol on the body. Especially effective it is satd, were the stereopticon picture slibes, of the National Temperence League of Great Britain. These stereoption pictures, the report goes on to show, were largely repro on of pa being issued dy the councils of about 100 British borroughs. The posters deal in a popular way with the deleter ious effects of alcohol on the human, system, and are posted by order of the regular officals of towns in which the sale of intoxicanhs is licened. This fact, however, does not prevent the officials from warning the public against the use of alcohol. Following the example Great Britain the city and district official of both France ahd Australia likewise have adoped the "public warning" method of'advising all against indulgence. The report deplore the fact that the same method has not yet fouud a foot hold in the United States, although such a plan has been noted in certain cities, where posters investing against the use of alcohol haAe been issued by authority of tha mayor. The relations of drunkness to crime was a subject that recieved much atten tion at Cougress. The Chief Justice of Englaud, Lord Alverstone, an nounced that in his belief 90 per cent of the crimes passing under his obser vation were due to drink. Judge W. F. Polload of St. Louie, Mo. who presides at the Second Dis trict Police court in that city declared that of the cases passed upon by him fully 85 per cent of those convicted could charge theigr-degradation to the vise of alcohol. Lieut. Col McHardy, of Edinburgh, Scotland, coincided with Judge Pollard as to the percent age of crimes occuring, in the former Scotch capital. (Continued) The annual meeting of the Congaegational Church was held Jan. 6th at the home of Mr. and Mrs. M. B. Cassell. About fifty members and friends were pres ent to hear reports and elect of ficers for the ensuing year. Written reports were received from the clerk, treasurer, Sun day School, Aid Society Chris tian Endeavor and pastor.

The present membership is 94 and the treasurer reported re ceipts totaling $1,819.50 for the year's home expense and nearly $275.00 for benevolence. In 1909 the Sunday School had an average attendance of 76 be ing 84 per cent of the enrollment, There are now ten classes, four of them doing special text work while classes Nos. 1-6 use the In ternational lessons. The following comprises the of ficial board, including hold over and newly elected: Clerk, Mrs. E. D. Washburn Treasurer, J. H. McCullon Deacons, H. D. Car penter and M. B. Cassell trus tees, J. J.

WORD AND WORKS PUB LISHING CO.. *801 Locust St., St. Louis, Mo. spreaderology" The New Study. Ten years ago nearly every farmer thought "a spreader was a spreader" and that was all there VM to it. If one man in the neighborhood bought one he had so much trouble with it—so many breakages, and repairs'were so expensive that none of his neighbors cared to buy. There are a good many of the same kind yet, but if you study SPREADEROLOGY—the science of manure spreaders—you can distingu ish between the good ones and the poor ones and will be in position to pick out the best. There is nothing mysterious about a manure spreader. Any clear-headed man can determine by com parison which is the best if he will only take the time and trouble to do so. The closest possible examin ation of all other spreaders will show them to be practically alike in all important features—yet each claims to be the best. Now, any spreader to be essentially better than others must at least be different. For instance, if it runs easier, has less repairs, lasts longer and does better work there must be a reason. In this series of articles we propose to tell you why the Litchfield is the best spreader, and prove it so emphatically that no man can doubt it. We are not satisfied with making the assertion without furnishing proof and will tell you later on about our SELF-CLEANING, FORCE-PEED endless apron, BULL DOO cylinder NO-CHOKE box, MALLABLE side hitch, OIL PACKED main bearings and other features which you will not find on any other spreader. It is the patented points which no other spreader can use for years to come that makes this machine superior. We will take these features up one at a time and explain them to you. Next week we propose to tell you about the SELE-CLEANLNG, FORCE-FEED endless apron, but in the meantime we would like to have you call on us and see the machine yourself. We are not very good writers but when we get to talking spread* er it is hard to head us off. When you come in don't forget to ask us about our five year guarantee. Of course, we've other things to sell, but we want to talk to you particularly about spreaders. Major Implement Co.
