Marks, of the firm of Hoffman & Marks, Los Angeles, arrived in Delano last Saturday accompanied by Seth Curry, a prominent land owner of Hope, North Dakota, who is spending the winter in Long Beach. While driving about the country last Saturday Mr. Marks suc ceeded in getting a £hot at a coy ote from a distance of about one hundred and fifty yards and suc ceeded in killing his coyoteship. Mr. Curry proved himself the chief skinner of the occasion by immediately skinning the animal of its hide, which act was accom plished in workmanlike manner showing that this notable gentle man is used to the game. The hide was shipped south to decor ate the "den" of Mr. Marks as a token of his prowess. Notice. The fifty pairs of mittens which the Pioneer offered as pre miums are gone and from now on no premiums will be given. All persons who know their sub scription to be due are requested to call and settle at once. Afire at Kindred last week was started by the explosion of alampinDr. Juul's offices. It destroyed two buildings includ ing the offiice of the Kindred Tribune. We extend our sym pathy to Bro. Van Arnum and trust he will soon be established again. The statement that it pays to' advertise is well established by the following incident: An edi tor printed the following item in his paper, "The business man in this town who hugs his steno grapher had better stop or we shall publish his name." The day following publication twenty business men called at the edi tor's office, advanced their sub scription one year, gave him a year's cash-in-advance order for a column of advertising, and told him not to take any stock in all the foolish stories he heard. Agricultural Topics Edited by W. C. Palmer Agricultural College, N. D. Double The Yield. Cut the farm into 'five fields. Crop as follows: one to corn, two to wheat, one to clover and timothy and one to barley, and then change the crop on each field from year to year. This is the rotation followed on the 24 demonstration farms. When clover and timothy fail, peas and oats are put in place of them. The corn land is manured. In 1909 the average yield of wheat for the state was 13 bushels. On the demonstration farms run three years 26£ bushels of wheat on those run two years 22i bus hels. This year the average for the state was 4£ and the average on the demonstration farms was 8 bushels. Hobart Leigh ton. Married at Grand Rapids, Minn., December 9th, Miss Mary Hobart and John E.

Girls coming to Fargo, either em ployed or seeking employment, will be glad to know about the Young Wo men's Christian Association. There are but two such Associations in the state, the other being at Grand Forks. The Fargo Association occupies the entire fifth floor of the Improvement building on 1st. Ave. N. It is four blocks south of the Great Northern, two blocks north of the Northern Pa cific and one block west of the Broad way street car line. The "Y. W. C. A.'' sign hangs out high arid is lighted by night. The elevator brings you right up to the fifth floor where there are sleeping rooms to accomodate about forty girls at rates that will ac comodate most any business girl. In the luncheon room wholesome, home cooking may be obtained at a very low price, The rooms are sanitary, well-heated and lighted. There is a "homey" atmosphere about the place and one thing the girls like best about it is that there is "always something doing". Here the stranger is welcome and safe as long as she wishes to remain. Ladies shopping like to lunch there and remain to rest and read awhile. Others in the city for medical treat ment find this centrally located home a convenient place for them during fcheir brief stay. A room is reserved for transients and there is always "room for one more". Many have secured employ ment through the assistance of the Y. W. C. A. W. C. T. U. Anti-Cigarette. Law.

Editor of Leading Newspaper, Sherbrooke, N. D. Dear Editor:— This may seem to you a strange ap peal but we Hoosier girls have been told that in the Great West are many bachelors who if they could only find some girl to share their joys and sor rows, and assist them in making a happy home would gladly do so. Now we know of several Hoosier girls who would be willing to under take that pleasant task for some large tall, honorable bachelor of good char acter and prospects, if we could only find the bachelor. Now the appeal is this. You in your position perhaps know of some soul of the above description who would like to write to some Hoosier girls. If so, will you kindly place this in their hands with blessings on the editor. (Signed) Mildred De Soui, Look Box 305. Kokomo, Ind. P. S. I hope this won't find its way to your waste basket, but you will give it special attention.
