ALFRED BLAISDELL, Secretary of State. Bismarck, N. D., August 8, 1910. W. C. T. U. FOR THE BOYS. The young man- who is always found arotlnd the1 strt^it' corners and who spends his evenings in drinking and playing cards, will never amount to much. It -isr contrary to the natural order of things. The boys-who spend ttfeir-preckus youth- in this manner are the ones'who will take the place laborers they will live in poor houses wear poor clothes, and when they come to die they will be followed to their graves by a few friends. O, that the young men of our land might awaken to a know ledge of their situation. There is an opportunity for every young man to become an honored citizen, and yet so many, O, so many, precious boys are allowing themselves to be car ried along apparently caring but little about their future. We do admire a manly boy, one who tries his best to become a man, and we always feel like helping him along. The boy who steps out from among evil associates, gives tobacco the go-by, has within him the true grit and deserves to be helped. It takes considerable to turn one's back upon those with whom he has been associating, and we admire the pluck of any one who does so. Our country needs grand and good men, and to become a grand and good man one must be a grand and good boy. It is a wrong idea that every boy must "sow wild oats." When you sow a crop of wild oats, you must take time to harvest the crop and the crop is-never anything but chaff. "Wild oats" need never be sown. The time spent in "isowing wild oats" is worse than lost for the time could be spent in sowing a crop that would yield a golden harvest. Be careful about the kind of seed you sow, for "whatso ever a man soweth, that shall he also reap." The.following bit of startling news was clipped from the col umns of last Sunday's Minnea polis Tribune. Any comment is unnecessary as the facts speak for themselves: The team representing Blabon, N. D., on the ball field claims the championship of eastern North Bakota, on the record made this summer. The club has played 20'gaimes and has won 15 of them. A daily paper comes out with big head lines as follows: 'Ted dy Roosevelt has nothing to say." The statement is false on the face of it. Teddy is always saying something. In fact, he never loses an opportunity to talk. Talk about the tariff for achsnge. The people are get ting tired of a Roosevelt diet all the time.—Coowerstown Courier. nth, 1910 Arno Lang is Dead. The sad news of the death of Arno Lang, at Santa Anna, Cal., reached here Saturday evening. About four weeks ago he was taken with an attack of typhoid fever which gradualy became worse. Owing to a weakened heart due to a previous attacks several years ago, he was unable to withstand the siege and an swered the call of the Grim Reap er Saturday morning. His mother and father, Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Lang, were with him at the time. Funeral sei'vices were held Monday afternoon at two o'clock and interment made in the cemetery at that city. Arno Lang was born in Wilton, Iowa, May 7th, 1879, and while yet a small boy moved with his pa rents and brothers to Hope where his father had secured a farm on the outskirts of the city. Here he spent his early life. He learned the printer's trade and later was connected with the Aneta Panorama and later was indentified with the McVille Journal and Tolna Tribune. When his parents moved to Cal ifornia he accompanied them there and at the time of his death held a responsible position on one of the local papers there. He leaves a father and mother, two brothers and a sister to mourn his untimely death. We join with their many friends in extending to them a heartfelt sympathy in their bereavement. All sub contrat work has been stopped on the Fargo-Surry branch of the G. N. The reason given for same is a shortage of money. Card of Thanks. I wish to thank the friends and neighbors for their loving sympathy and help during the sickness and death of my be loved wife. J. A. Umstad, Colgate, N. D. ORDINANCE No. 31.

Small Accounts 1 There are many persons in this county who feel, pos sibly, that their business does not warrant the keeping of a bank account, but who would be greatly bennfit ted thereby. Ti This is a mistaken idea. A bank account is valuable to every person who transacts business. 1 You are enabled to keep your money where it is safe yet it is available'in part or whole at any time. You can pay all bills by check. This gives you a re ceipt for every dollar paid, for all checks are returned to you after having been paid by your bank. The fact that you possess a bank account gives you a better standing among business men and enablesyou to establish a credit with your bank when in need of it. 1 We welcome small accounts at this bank.
