The following article from the Breeders' Gazette gives an unbiased view of the dual purpose cow contro versy A great deal has been and is being written about the dual purpose and special purpose cow. Each has her place. The more any part or function of an animal is developed the more delicate the animal becomes, the better care it needs, the better feed it requires. The highly developed beef animal or dairy animal is unbalanced from the standpoint of nature, and nature left to herself does not produce them. When man produced them nature leaves it for man to care for, feed them and provide the conditions ne cessary for maintaining this unbal anced creature. When these highly specialized animals are given the re quisite feed, shelter and care they serve man's vants much better than the animal nature made—in fact one of them will do the work of a dozen or more of nature's kind. And they are the profitable animal to raise, provid ing all their wants can be satisfied. If, however, they cannot be given the proper care the less highly specialized animal may be more profitable. That is the place that the dual purpose cow fills. This animal is from the stand point of nature, quite well balanced. The fleshing properties are not so ex-1 tremely developed, nor its milk mak ing carried to so high a degree. Here is a cow that can be a fairly good milker—sometimes they are record breakers—and at the same time have good fleshing properties so that a steer from her would make a fairly good beef animal, and sometimes they are prize winners. The dual purpose animal while it will respond to the best feed, good stabling and fine care, yet it can get along without these better than can the highly specialized animal. They are also less liable to disease so that they should prove the animal for the farmer to raise who does not feel that he can give as much time and atten tion to his stock as the best kind of stock might require. Whether this is profitable or not is another question, the point at issue is what a man is go ing to do, and this he will likely do to quite an extent regardless of profits. The matter of securing the dual purpose cow is getting more difficult as nearly all cattle have now some strains of either the dairy blood or that of the beef lines in their make-up so that they will not transmit true to type, ane none of the pure breds are strictly dual purpose some were at one time, as some strains of the Short horn, and they persist yet in England, but where can they can be had in this country in a sufficient number so as to in any way satisfy the needs of farm ers who might want them. The Red Polls are being bred more and more to beef. It seems, however, that late ly more attention is being given to breeding for dual purpose type so that it may be easier in the course of a few years to secure such animals than it is at present. pioneer.

Altho the evening was fine not a great many of our citizens turned out to hear the boys, which is regreted. The band is a local institu tion and supported by the people.

V» V? 1 County News Mr. Nolting was born in Prussia, Germany, Feb. 14, 1842. In 1844, he came with his parents to Amerioa, lo cating in the vicinity of Warrentown, Warren Co., Mo. On June 14. 1872, he was married to Wilhelmina Lan gendoerfer. In 1878 he came with his family to Mankato, Minn., making his home in different parts of Minne sota until a year ago, when he came to Hope, N. D., where he resided un til the time of his death. He was a member of the German M. E. church for the past thirty-five years, and he died as he lived, a Christian man. His death was due to heart failure, of which he has been a sufferer for about eighteen years. He leaves to mourn his death his wife, three sons, two liv ing in Minnesota and John, of Hope four daughters, Mrs. John Smith and the Misses Lydia and Anna Nolting, of Hope, and one daughter in Califor nia a sister, three brothers and five grandchildren.

The new firm not having thoroughly decided upon their future course, have no announcement to make this week. Miss Anna Cummings, who has been visiting at Fargo for a couple of weeks, returned home yesterday. She reports her sister, Miss Isabel, as recovering nicely from her operation for appen dicitis. The editor of the Western (Neb.) Wave is right—dead right—when he says: "The tendency to patronize mail order houses is not confined wholly to farmers—it is human nature. Ask a farmer why he sends away for goods and he will say he gets them cheaper. Ask a business man why he sends to Washington for his envelopes and he will say he gets them cheaper. There are the same arguments for and against the proposition in both cases. Blanche Warner, at the piano, accom panied Messrs Wold and Milligan in a clarinet and cornet duet entitled 1 '.-J.- ». .5f "--'-.rt-'f' No. 38 "U. and I". The band wish to thank these for their assistance and also those who lent their encouragement by attend ing. Nearly all the watch signs, probably 90 out of 100, have hands set at 8:111, but comparatively few people know why this is. It is no accident. W. K. Washburn, of New York, was painting a sign for a jeweler of that city when the news of the assassina tion of Abraham Lincoln, April 14, 1865, was received in New York and the latter ordered the painter to put upon the dial the hands showing the exact time when the fatal shot was fired, namely 8:18, and so they have continued ever since. Whenever you see a sign after this, recall the fact that it points to the fatal moment.
