TOWN BOOSTING Th Town Boosting Movement of 15 years ago sought mostly to build up a town with new industries, without regard to the outlying territory which was tributary to the town or could be made so. Thereby it ne glected wonderful resources of de velopment lying partly idle at its back door. The modern Town Boosting move ment realizes the potential values of the surrounding territory. It is just as interested to see outlying vil lages grow as to see its own muni cipality grow. It realizes that mod ern life unifies a business center and all the surrounding country. What helps the outlying country, helps the center, and vice versa. It promotes good roads, motor truck and other transportation, and everything tend ing to farm and village prosperity and welfare. Boards of Trade take up and push all kinds of enterprises for utiliza tion of the agricultural resources of the surrounding country, such as canning and preserving workshops, creameries, factories for producing evaporated, condensed and powdered milk and other dairy products. They push schemes to introduce higher standards of stock breeding. They work to bring the results of W. G. NEWELL, Manager TTTF. scientific agriculture home to the farmers. A great deal of the sup port of the Farm Bureau movement has come from organizations located in business centers. The proper utilization of farm products is capable of an almost in finite development. Take the matter of milk products. As milk is so bul ky and heavy, it is much more nat ural to prepare a lot of these pro ducts close to the farms where the milk comes from. Similarly when every neighborhood has its canning factory, far more fruits and vegeta bles will be raised, and all this new production brings new business to the trading centers. A GOOD ROADS ARGUMENT It is predicted by some, that the building of hard roads will lead to cutting out of consignment shipping. The farmer, it is claimed, will bring his produce to market direct by mo tor truck if you give him a good road, and this largely eliminates the middleman. This may be looking ahead for some distance, but the more you fa cilitate communication, the easier you make it to sell by the shortest route. When produce moves quickly over good roads, it won't have to be shifted around among so many people, each claiming their percent age of profit. People who go around Hope coughing and sneezing in these in fluenza times, are frequently sore because their sociul gifts are not ap preciated.

CURTIS WOODWORK "ffie Permanent JuTnitureJbry6ur7(Qitut HOPE, N. D. I hear men say sometimes, "Great Scott! This is the village Gor forgot There is no chance for me to rise, in this old burg of mossback guys." Then they go forth upon a day, to fairer pastures far away and there they find things just as bad as in their own abandoned grad. It cuts no ice where genius dwells we'll al ways see it wearing bells. The man who has the goods may go to desert waste or arctic snow, and there hang out his modest sign, and he will find that trade is fine. Ours is a quiet dreamy town, but it would hold no fellow down. If some youth shows the proper fire, with wrench or ham mer, brush or lyre, men drop their work for half a day, to help him up ward on his way. With proper stuf fing in your head, there isn't any town so dead that you can't cut a swath right there, and nineteen finds of laurels wear. And in the deadest, grayest town a man may win a world renown. If you fair reader, where you are, can't hitch your wagon to a star, you couldn't do hte trick in Cork, in Boston, Jop lin or New York.—Walt Mason.

Mary—"Poultry is is certain kind of verse. On Monday two of the hopeful, but inactive Freshmen were dropped out of High School. We are sorry to see them go but this lesson com ing early in life may teach them the truth of the old saying, "Life is real, life is earnest.." This ap plies to the student's life as to the rest of us. Everybody has started out with a vision of nineties as final marks for the present semester. Here's hopig our dreams come true. The Hope basketball team goes to Aneta Friday to show them a little more about the game of basketball. Joslyn is on .the sick list. We all hope he may soon be back with us. The flu seems to have struck quite a few families. Latest reports are that all are getting over it nicely. S Nellie Lunding was back from the University visiting with old High School friends. Hope 40. Shut-on 3 The above score indicates how complete was the rout of the Sharon basketball team at the hands of the local whirlwind five last Friday night. The score would undoubtedly have. been even greater had not one of the local forwards recently suf fered a bruised shoulder which pre^ vented his usual string of baskets The game was finished with substi tutes. The Hope defense baffled the visiting team, who were compelled to shoot from long range. Evident ly they had not mastered this dubious are for they were not able 40 make any points via the air route either. Joslyn and Gumb looped them in at will, joslyn put in 11 Counters, and Capt. Gumb 10 any a free throw. Klovstad railed in three more with the uninjured arm. The Sharon lads were clearly outclassed. Nelson put in one for Sharon, and Halvor son made the other point with a free throw. Hope 4, Sharon 2 The girls game was a scrap from start to finish. Both teams fought with desperate energy, but neither seemed able to get the edge on the other to any great degree. Our whirlwind center, Pickens, was just up out of bed from a recent severe illness, and was somewhat out of her stride, not having had any prac tice for some time. Both teams did some nice passing at times, but guarding was so close that scoring was practically impossible. Mary Pepper looped in the first one for Hope, and later Hazel Pickens came across with a pretty one. Swenson for Sharon took a chance when no body was looking and put one in for Sharon. The girls say they all had a good time out of it, so everybody is happy. INTERESTING HAPPENINGS AT THE STATE CAPITOI, (Continued from first page) greater deficit. These appraisers fees are excessive and burdensome. It is alleged in the report that the Drake Mill shows a net profit of $2,748.23, but it also appears that items which should be charged to its operating account are found un der expeditures of the Mill and Ele vator Association, and that if the books were properly kept, that there would be a deficit intead of a profit in this industry. I am of the opinion that the re port wholly fails to comply with the provisions of Section 6, and that from its evasive and misleading char acter, and from the showing made as to the condition of the industries, that a thorough examination ought to be made of the affairs of the In dustrial Commission by a competent firm of registered accountants and all of the industries put under com petent business management. Interest throughout the state, ac cording to information here, is that Republicans are taking an unusual interest in the convention called for Bismarck February 17, the Second Republican State Convention. Re ports that Alex McKenzie would con trol the convention which was held January 28 failed to prove anything more than reports. Delegates from nine of the counties in the Sixth Ju dicial District at the time of the first convention met and prepared to break up anything that looked like in effort to steam up the roller. One of their members was made chairman of the convention, Attorney A. T. Fauer. The only effort made to swing the convention was a move for the endorsement of General Wood. This was blocked. It was a Republican convention, with no one steering any pet projects through, was the verdict. Now harmonious approbation of the flrBt sesson is ex- pected of the second convention Feb ruary 17. County commissioners of North Dakota have within the past week received urgent letters and telegrams from F. W. Cathro, director general of the Bank of North Dakota, urging that the county boards pass resolu tions and wire congressmen from this state, Baer in particular, urging the passage of a bill to deposit $10, 000,000 of federal funds in the State Bank. This is to be loaned out to the farmers at 6 percent. The rate of interest now paid the federal banks is four prcent and the county commissioners have generally balked at the action to boost the credit of the state bank to two percent extra to the farmers.
