ABOUT MISS NIELSON Probably no candidate who has ever appeared before the people of North Dakota has conducted such an honorable, straight forward and thoroughly honest campaign for election to a state office as has Miss Nielson, candidate for super intendent of public instruction. Maligned by the Socilist papers of the state insulted and abused because she is a woman made the object of attack at the hands of the present state superintendent of schools who sought to raise against her the question of her qualification for office, Miss Niel son has retained her poise through out. It is for the people of North Da kota—for her upright men and women who believe in the decent lings of life—to decide on Novem ber 5th what kind of a superin tendent of public instruction they vant. It is their opportunity to approve or repudiate the vicious ampaign of the type that has Wn made against Miss Nielson. -r they may approve Miss Niel "n's course by voting for her. The attempt to throw out the nr.p'einrt tlift Miss Nielson was iot qualified for the position has ^nl!en flat, and has acted as a '^omerang. Miss Nielson holds a 'ife professional certificate, the 'uprhest certificate issued by North Dakota, and the only requirement made by law to qualify for the of fice of superintendent of public in struction. A vote for Miss Nielson is a vote for clean politics. BLABON LOCALS A. L. Stewart accompi ined by Miss Blanch Stewart and Bernice Burner autoed to Valley City Sunday.

Nelson Explains the Legislative Ticket It seems it is not clear to mat^y of 'he yoters of the 16'h Leeis vt* District who ihe candi 'lutes for ffli-.e are. Ii is known by all thrit the Nonpartisans have a lull ticket, but there seems to be som' doubt as to whether or not there are an more men in the field, To make this clear, I take this oppoitun ity.thru the several papers of the district, to let it be known that there were nominated at the iast Primary on the Democratic ballot, one senator and one re presentative from Griggs coun ty, and two representatives from Steele. The senator, D. A. Gop Lin, is a man with very good qual ifications, an upright and con scientious man. His principles are progressive and he is not afraid to speak out his mind. Mr. Prank Panlson, who is run ning for representative from Griggs, is an ol.d timer and has shown by his success as a farm er that he is a man who can be trusted to look after the best interests of the 16th Legislative District. A. B. Holt, of Blabon, we all know to be a man of good bus iness principles, a man who has succeeded in business while others failed, and who is known as an outspoken, progressive man. Then, the writer is in the field, not thru choice but because I was persuaded to come out. bi' a large number of friends, and would rather stay at home or go California. But I'll say this, that I have no mud to sliug at anyone and am willing to let everyone have his opinion, and fcnat I surely want mine But if anyone does not agree with me we can be good friends just the ame. I had intended to gt round to shake hands with my old time friends before now, but tu»- "fin" h:is had me in its grip fo 'he ist three weeks, so have nut 6'-n able to be out. SiijCerely .yours, Pol. Ad v. S II NELSON CHAS. HOWARD BURIED HON. The bi dy of Chas. Howard ar ried Monday morning from Camp Custer Mich whjre For he iied hist Friday from pneumonia fo lowing an attack of influenza.
