"Mathilda," he said, "you know those wonderful 40-cent shirts and 15-cent neckties that you bought me last week, so I could put more money into the war loan?" "Yes." "Well," the man went on, "I stoped into the same shop today and bought something for you. It's a beauiful red and green checkered dress maerial, and I got you eight yards at 6 cents a yard. The clerk said it would make enough dresses to see you through the war." FRIENDS DON'T LIKE HIM One of the most striking features of the late primary is the fact that every town in which Superinten dent of Public Instruction N. C. Macdonald has lived gave his op ponent, Miss Nielson, a majority. In Cavalier county where he serv ed one term as county superinten dent of schools, the people turned him down cold. In addition to this it iff reported that only one county superintendent out of the! fifty-three in the state is support ing him for re-election.' Will some: of the supporters of Mr. Macdon ald explain why, if he is such a world-beater as an educator and so efficient as a state superinten dent, those who know him inti mately, and therefore best, are so uniformly against his re-election? —Page Record. THE FOURTH LIBERTY LOAN The Griggs County Sentinel Courier has the following timely editorial on the Fourth Liberty Loan which applies to this county as well as Griggs: The Fourth Liberty Loan drive in Griggs county has demonstrat ed that we have some people here who are not loyal American citi zens. In their case, the melting pot, has failed to melt, and in spite of the fact that many of them were born and raised in this country they are not true to her. Their sympathies may not be with Germany—but they are against the United States. They are lightweight people. Lightweight citizens. Scum. In our printing office we have a melting pot, in which we remelt the type metal after it has been used each week. After all is melted, a vigorous stirring of the molten metal brings to the surface the dross and dirt, and after this is skimmed off only the pure clean metal remains. The United States is called the melting pot of nations. This war may be likened to the vigorous stirring given the molten type metal. It has brought the dross and dirt of our citizenship to the sur face. It is an easy matter in each com munity to single out these bits of dross—these bits of dirt. They stand out in such striking contrast to the pure clean metal of true patriotism, with which they were once united, but from which they are now forever separated. In a great crisis, such as the struggle in which we are now en gaged, it is easy to pick out the lightweights. It is regrettable that we have some of them in Griggs County. This fact mars the feeling of ex ultation all of us have every right to feel in Grigsg county's over subscription to the Fourth Liberty Loan. Those who helped put old Griggs over the top may well feel proud. There are some who did not help, who could well afford to do so. They are slackers! Cowards! Traitors! Dross! Dirt! Every true, red-blooded Ameri can citizen should shun them as he would the mad dog with dripping fangs. W&S&? I. jftMMllfflMHMg|gfaiaiMiapraiaia«a»aia«aiaipuu|y|ju|g| S :.:i V.,....

KRAABEL & KRAABEL Hope, No, Dak. wlM!BBBBBBiaBHHiaaBimiapppapnapnff|iif|ffQiMMWB Ice Boxes on Wheels Refrigerator cars for carrying meat are ice boxes traveling on wheels. Most people in America would have to go without fresh meat, or would have to pay more for what they could get, if it were not for these traveling ice boxes. Gustavus P. Swift, the first Swift in the packing industry, saw the need of these traveling ice boxes before others. He asked the railroads to build them. The railroads refused. They were equipped, and preferred to haul cattle rather than dressed beef. So Gustavus F. Swift had to make the cars himself. The first one was a box car rigged up to hold ice. Now there are 7,000 Swift refrigerator cars. Each one is as fine an ice box as you have in your home. Day and night, fair weather. and foul, through heat and cold, these 7,000 cars go rolling up and down the country, keeping meat just right, on its way to you. Thus another phase of Swift & Company's activities has grown to meet a need no one else could or would supply, in way that matched Swift & Company ideas of being useful. When you see one of these Swift & Company cars in a train, or on a siding, you will be reminded of what is being done for you as the fruit of experience and a desire to serve. Swift & Company, U. S.
