Hanson NEW SETTLERS TTAVE BEEN arriving with their families, household goods, and live stock for several weeks in Hope and vicinity. They have bought farms and have aome to stay. They are the right kind o^ people from an agricultural country and will be producers of live stock and grain which will add to the resources of Steele County. They will erect new buildings and make more business generally. The country needs these people and appreciate them. There are still many more to come, and we are going after them. It is a fight all along the line to get them because competition from other local? ities is strong. Many concessions and inducements are offered and this com pany goes to the limit—for aside from making rates and other in ducements we agree to purchase their farms if they own one in order to sell them one here, takingour own chances when we will be able to sell the one we get from them. Their lands are higher priced than ours but, the price does not scare us if we believe we can sell them. Any company that can swing these deals can sell land and more land than one which cannot handle both ends. We want more farms with good buildings on to sell, any and all sizes.

The following letter catie to our hands a few days ago. It apparently seems to have been written as an ex cuse for failure to attend a certain business session: "Plez eskuz me 4 not komen las nite. I'z waz d'taind bl biznus. Biz nus mus kom b'4 plezur. I'z waz planen bout mine siztur komen over 4 Estr vakashun heer at Hop.' 'l'z wantd tu kom wery badli but. az I'z sed b'4, l'z waz kep away bi biznus. "U'r muh luf, "Me." The note was also addressed, but it would perhaps be best not to mention any names. It was reported about a year ago that our high school had lost its standing. To refute this we quote verbatim from a letter received a few days ago from St. Louis, Mo., where the North Central Association had its recent session: "We take pleasure in informing you that at the meeting of the North Cen tral Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools, held in St. Louis, Missouri, March 22-24, 1917, your school was accredited for the current school year."
