MONTEITH HONORED AT BISMARCK N. D. Press Assn. Elected Him President for 1917 The N. D. Press Ass'n met at Rismarck Friday and Saturday of last week but owing to the weather conditions the attend ance was about one-third of nor mal. The newspaper boys and the Commercial Club had made extensive preparations for en tertainment and those who were present had a most enjoyable time. An excellent program cover ing subjects of importance to the members of the association had been prepared, but unfor tunately several who were on the program could not reach Bis marck. An unexpected treat was a short talk by the famous traveler, newspaper writer and lecturer, Pere Strom me. A great amount of interest was taken in the election of of ficers and the selection of the places of meetings for 1917. Dickenson secured the summer meeting and Grand Porks the winter meeting. Officers were elected as fal lows: President, George A. Monteith, Finley First Vice President, M. I. Forkner, Lang don Second Vice President, E. L. Peterson, Dickinson Third Vice-President, J. H. McGarry, Ali-xandei Secretary, D. Carlson, Towner Treasurer Edward Sullivan, New Salem. Members of executive commit tee: R. J. Hughes, retiring preeideut H. P. Knappen, of Bismarck, and W. B. McLaugh lin. of Kenmare. The writer, who was in attend ance, had a fine time. Besides attending the association meet ings, we visited the Capitol and met a number of the state offi cials, including Gov. Frazier, Lieutenant Governor Kraabel, and Secretary of State Thos Hall. We also visited one of the most interesting exhibits in the state in the quarters of the State Historical Society where one of the finest collection of Indian curios is on exhibition. We also bad a short visit with Rep. R. A. Lathrop and Senator Chas. Ellingson, and secured some first-hand information re garding the conduct of affairs in the legislature. Taken as a whole we feel well repaid for the trouble and ex pense in making the trip to our capital under the present weath er conditions. M. E.

REVIEW OF WOMAN SUFFRAGE IN N. D. In 1914 woman suffrage was defeated in this state the down fall of the measure is supposed to have been caused by the fact that the legislative body re quired a majority of all votes east. At the next session of the leg islature the measure to again submit it to the voters was killed in the senate by the booze ele ment, because they knew that if they sent it to the house that they would pass it since it orig inated there. But the suffrage workers of the state were not dismayed and as soon as the 1917 lawmaking body had assembled they were on hand with a bill that, if passed, would give the women of the state the right to vote for presidential electors, county surveyors, county con stables, and for all officiers of cities, villages and towns, except police magistrates and city jus tices of the peace, and upon all questions or propositions sub mitted to a vote of the electors of such municipalities or other political divisions of this state. Also for the following township officers: Township clerk, as sessor, treasurer, overseer of highways and constables and may also participate and vote in all annual and special township meetings in the township in which such election shall be. This last section is important and will be of especial interest to all property holders. Section three provides that separate ballot boxes shall be provided for the women, with separate ballots containing only the list of officers and measures upon which the women may vote. This bill had been previously drawn up by M. Pollock, of Fargo, at the request of the state president of fcbe"W. T. U., and was presented by Mr. Lindstrom. Needless to say the measure passed and our state has joined the ranks of women suffrage, the greatest political reform of the age. It is the same as was passed in Illinois a few years ago, with which the women of that state have gotten such effective re suits, though fortunately the North Dakota women won't have to clean out the saloons with their ballot. .Full suffrage was not given on account of the restrictions of our constition and it will be ne cessary to have the constitution changed before this could be done legally, unless the federal amendment is adopted in the U. S. congress before this is ac complished. However, a bill to change the constitution to the effect that women shall have full suffrage was recently passed in the legislature and if also passed by the 1919 legislathre will be submitted to the male voters in 1921. The senate, house and govern or signed the suffrage bill on Jan. 22, in the presence of a few of the prominent suffrage work ers of the state. The quill pens used for the signing in the house and senate were presented to the head officers of the leading organizations for suffrage, name ly, the W. C. T. U. and the Votes for Women League. The one with which the governor signed the bill was given to Mrs. Weible in memory of her mother, Mrs Darrow, who did so much to further the oauge in this state Meteorological Observations Taken by S.

About Constipation Certain articles of diet tend to check movements of the bowels. The most common of these are cheese, tea and boiled milk. On the other hand, raw fruits, especially apples and bananas, also graham bread and whole wheat bread promote a movement of the bowels. When the bowels are badly constipated, however, the sure way is to take one or two of Chamberlain'i Tablets immediately after supper —Adv.

Chicago.—Human beings inhabited the North American continent more than 125,000 years ago, according to the findings of E. H. Sellards, state geologist of Florida, and Prof. Oliver P. Hay, who made public results of a study of fossil remains discovered in Florida some months ago. Their opin ion, however, is not fully concurred in by other scientists. Human bones intermingled with those of the mastodon, saber-tooth tiger and other extinct animals, were found in the deposit at Vero, Fla., and thither six geologists and anthropolo gists made their way immediately to study the find. Their report wl'.l be made in the January-February (1917) Issue of the Journal of Geology. Ad vance sheets quote Mr, Sellard us say ing: "The study of the fossils of this stra tum, although not yet completed, has brought to light a considerable number of extinct species which suggest the reference of the deposit to the Pleisto cene period. This is the oldest deposit from which human remains have evet been taken." Doctor Hay, who is research associ ate of the Carnegie institution oi Washington, expresses similar views but four other scientists, whose ar ticles will appear in the Journal ol Geology, are skeptical. They are Prof. R. T. Chamberlain of the University ol Chicago, Thomas Wayland Vauglian oi the United States geological survey Dr. Ales Ilrdlicka of the United States National museum, and Prof. Georgt Grant McCurdy of Yale. They are noi convinced that the human race existcc ou this continent at so early a period.

Baltimore, Md.—A new method ol treating serious burns that involves the use of air and sunlight has been put into practice at Johns Hopkins hos* pital, and already in a number of cases has been successful. "Nature cures" have been recognized as the most practicable in a rapidly increasing list of ailments. The gen eral idea back of all these methods is that nature, with a fair chance, wilj do more for the sick body than will drugs or surgery. In treating burns a small part of the Injured surface is exposed directly to the sun and air out of doors. The best results are obtained in temperate weather, when the patient can lie at ease for hours under the direct rays of the sun and the influence of the air. In colder weather only more indirect exposure is possible, and then the re results are not rapid. As a result of the treatment skin grafting will not have to be used in a number of cases. The effect of the air and sunlight cure is to keep alive much of the burned tissue, and in time this tissue grows out over the burned surface. Bell Heard Forty Miles.
