THUDSDAT, FEBRUARY 12. 1920.
RE you doing without a
beautiful home because
you believe that such a
home is only for the wealthy?
If so, you need do without it
no longer. You can realize now
your dream of a house that is as
beautiful, as comfortable, and as
convenient as your home ought
to be, however small.
We make it possible for you,
through our co-operation with
the manufacturers of guaranteed
and trademarked Curtis Wood
work, to build a beautiful house
with as few as 3 rooms, or with
as many as 8.
There are homes of four dif
ferent architectural expressions
Colonial, English, Western
and Southern—from which you
can make your selection. Surely
among these you will find one
that is just what you want.
Trowbridge &Ackerman, arch
itects, of New York—authorities
in the field of domestic architec
ture—have designed these homes.
You are, therefore,, assured of a
home that will be correct in every
detail and beautiful of design,
and at a cost that is within your

Curtis Woodwork is standard

of production, and thus reduces
the cost of good woodwork to

we are now able to offer you

you, free, a portfolio of "Better Built

6, 7 or 8 rooms, we will obtain Port
folio No. VII for you. Or perhaps you
would like Portfolio No. VIII, which
shows houses particularly adapted to
farm use. Each portfolio contains
illustrations of the exteriors, interiors
and floor plans, with complete descrip

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
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
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

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
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

to see them go but this lesson com

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.

The above score indicates how
complete was the rout of the Sharon
basketball team at the hands of the

lads were clearly outclassed. Nelson

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

Hope, and later Hazel Pickens came
across with a pretty one. Swenson

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.

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-

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.
