$be Ifoope flitoneer HOPE, NORTH DAKOTA Published by the NORTH DAKOTA PUBLISHING CO. L. J. BOWEN, Editor SUBSCRIPTION RATES One Year $2.00 Six Months 1.00 Entered at the post office at Hope, North Dakota, as second class matter. The Courier-News announces In its headlines yesterday that there is a great popular demand for call ing off the recall election. No doubt about it. Frazier, Lemke and Hagen are leading in this popular demand and are seconded by all the papsuck ers and socialist hangers-on that are grafting their living off the state and its institutions. Of course they don't want the recall. They can see some hungry times ahead after it is over. The following is an extract from a letter by M. I. Forkner, editor of the Langdon Republican, written to his readers from Montana. He recent made the trip with his family by automobile from Langdon to Mon tana and this portion of his discrip tion of the trip is so interesting that we take this opportunity of passing it on t? our readers.—Ed. The most enjoyable part of the trip started about thirty miles west of Dickinson and continued through the bad lands. We drove slowly through this interesting region and were deep ly impressed with the grandeur of it all. We had been through the Bad Lands on the train and thought that we had seen them, but we found that we had only had a glimpse of North Dakota's wonderland. I do not recall the distance we traveled through the Bad Lands be fore we reached Beach, but it must have been about thrity miles. You go through one depression, lined on either side with ragged buttes and start up a hill, thinking that you are out of the Bad Lands, only to find upon reaching the crest that you are entering a more beautiful canyon than the preceeding one. The roads Mellotone is made by are good, which affords one an op portunity to view on either side, the wonders that nature has wrought in ages past. "See North Dakota first?" Well, I should say so. There may be deeper canyons, higher mountain peakes and a larger variety of scenes for those who can appreciate the big things in nature, but when God took a beautiful rainbow and whipped across the Bad Lands of North Dakota in such a way that the never fading colors will remain for time immemorial, he painted a picture that cannot be reproduced with the finest man-made lense and a picture that North Dakota citizens should prize more highly. lu the bad lands or North Dakota are to be found every type of rock formation, from glass sands to gyp sum, petrified trees that are more numerous that those contained in the wonderful canyon of Arizona, a large variety of birds and animals, and a wonderful opportunity will be over looked if every citizen does not get squarely behind the Roosevelt nation al park proposition. At Medora, Roosevelt's old ranch town, we took a side trip to Hon. Carl Olson's Pleasant Valley Ranch, the only "Dude" ranch in North Da kota. Carl conceived the Roosevelt Park idea and is pushing" it for all it is worth. His ranch sets back in the hills four miles from Medora, just at the edge of the great petri fied forest. Mr. Olson informed us that it would take us at least six hours to go through the petrified forest, and as our time was somewhat limited, at least we felt so, we sat on the porch at his ranch 'house, looked at the pictures, inspected his specimens of rock formations gathered at dif ferent places 011 his ranch, and list ened attentively as he told us Of the possibilities of the National Park proposition in which he is complete ly wrapped up. He has several cot tages fitted up ror tourists and is prepared to feed ail those who can stay for only a few hours. Carl con ceived the idea of making his ranch a tourists resort but a short time ago, and the road to it leads over some very bad hills, but he is building a road and hopes to have it in pretty good shape by next season. The scenery from the Bad Lands 0 For dull, rich velvety walls use MELLOTONE Your bedroom walls, above all, should be rest ful.

On account of the heavy tourist trav el at this season ot the year, the trails are badly cut up In some places, but on the whole very good time can be made. On Sunday we made 237 miles, on Monday 212, and on Tuesday 169, In addition to side trips, so that the going may be con sidered fairly good. Until this trip I never fully ap predated what good roads mean to a community. In Montana they have spent thousands and thousands to construct highways that would at tract tourists, and now they^have neglected the highways until one must spend his whole time watching the roads, and must stop If he wants to take in the scenery. The Montana folks realize the mistake they have made in not keeping up the roads and a concerted effort will be put forth next season to keep the tourist travel coming Montana's way. And if tliey fail to take action It is a cer tainty that the travel will be changed to other trails. North Dak. roads are just as much a head of Montana roads as the Minnesota roads are ahead of the North Dakota roads. Our own state has nothing to be ashamed of in the way of highways all we have to do is to keep improving and we will have the tourists coming our way Montana is a wonderful state, and the possibilities of the western part of our own state, with its great de posits of coal, clays and other miner als are all duplicated here. The beau til'ul scenery of the Bad Lands is duplicated for the most part in east ern Montana, and it increases in grandeur as you near the national parks, 1 am told.
