%be tbope pioneer HOPE, NORTH DAKOTA Published by the NORTH DAKOTA PUBLISHING CO. SUBSCRIPTION RATES Six Months $1-00 One Year Entered at the post office at Hope, North Dakota, as second class matter. District No. 10 of the United States Veterans' Bureau announces that a campaign will be instituted on May 1st., for the purpose of reinstating and converting United States Govern ment insurance policies of ex-service men and women. There is apparently a general im pression among those formerly identi fied with the service, who have al lowed their insurance to lapse, that they are no longer entitled to the privilege of carrying a policy with the Government. This is not he case, however. Insurance can be reinstated any time up to March 3rd, 10 26, re gardless of when the last payments were made. The only exception to this rule is in the case of those who are permanently and totally disabled or are suffering from a disability which is not due to their military service. Although it is not necessary to reinstate this insurance until March 3rd, 1926, there are many ad vantages in doing so at this time, and it is because of these advantages that the Government is now inaugurating this campaign in the states of Minne sota, North and South Dakota and Montana. A man who converts or reinstates his policy during this drive will pay a smaller premium than if he waits for several years. He will at the same time be building up a cash loan value and if he has a limited pay ment policy it will mature earlier. Then too, many men who are in good health at the present time may not be able to reinstate a few years from now due to some disability which they might contract in the meantime. No man. especially one who has de pendents, should be without insur ance, and1 for ex-service men the government offers the best, cheapest and safest policy. In addition to a yearly renewable term insurance, the government is Paint KEEP sues six different plans of permanent forms of insurance. Ordinary life, twenty and thirty payment life, twen ty and thirty year endowment and endowment at the age of sixty-two. These policies not only have the dis ability feature incidental to the year ly renewable term insurance, but in addition have cash and loan values and extended and paid-up insurance at the end of the first year is with out restrictions as to travel or occu pation, and is also free from taxation and is protected from claims of credi tors. your house looking its best at all times. Keeping up its appearance will keep up your pride in it. Communications relative to govern ment insurance will receive immedi ate attention if addressed to the In surance Section, U. S. Veterans' Bureau, Keith-Plaze Building, Min neapolis, Minnesota, or to the U. S. Veterans' Bureau offices at Helena, Montana, Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Fargo, North Dakota, Duluth and St. Paul, Minnesota. ^. NESTING PLACES FOR 1.3^. Plant flowers and grass seed. Trim up the shrubbery and vines. Don't let rubbish accumulate in either the front or back vard. Then paint your house with Lowr Broth ers High Standard—the investment paint. Lasts longer-than most other paints and looks better as long as it lasts. This means that repainting won't be necessary so soon. High Standard costs a few cents more per gallon, but you need fewer gallons, there fore you begin saving money right at the start. We will gladly prove to you that the difference between Lowe Brothers and other paints is more than a mere difference of opinion. Come in and ask for interesting litera ture and look at the sample panels. KING & SMITH Hope, N. D. OUR BIRDS By Dr. A. A. ALLEN) Importance of providing nesting places for these natural guardians of the forest, orchard and field is point ed out by Dr. A. A. Allen, the orni thologist, who declares that "in these days of scientific forestry when every dead tree is condemned and every dead branch lopped off by the 'tree doctor', their natural nesting sites are rapidly disappearing." Birds will move on unless they find plenty of nesting sites. Dr. Allen gives these rules: Slabs of wood with the bark adher ing, rustic cedar or weathered board should be used, not smoothly planed boards, for the more the nest boxes look like the old hollow limb in the orchard or a hole in a fence-post the more pleasing will it be to the eye of the bird. Green bark of a tree can be nailed together in the form of a cylinder. A hollow limb, a deserted woodpecker's nest, or a block of wood hollowed out in the form of a woodpecker's nest, are good devices. Gourds make fine nests with a hole of the proper size in one side, cjeaned out and a small hole drilled in the bottom to drain out rain water. Tin cans may be painted or covered with bark. Chalk or starch boxes may be reinforced and used. Two important points are the size and position of the opening. A round hole is the best and, except in martin JrM'**' A die line on one side and preferably about two inches from the top. If there are not many sparrqws or starl ings about it will be better to make the openings in all boxes, except for the largest birds, one and a half 'inches in diameter. This will admit birds up to the size of the bluebird and swallow. If sparrows are numer ous, however, one can keep them out of the boxes and admit the smaller species by making the opening one and a quarter inches in diameter. Placing the bird houses Is another point. If several boxes are put up they should be at least twenty-five feet apart, as some hole-nesting birds are not socially inclined towards others. The best place for a box is on a pole eight to twelve feet from the ground in an open space or at the edge of trees facing the open. A post on the porch or the unshaded side of the house, a trunk of a large tree, a telegraph pole or a high fence post are other places. A MESSAGE TO SPORTSMEN In an open letter to North Dakota sportsmen, E. T. Judd makes the claim that North Dakota now has the best supply of game birds to be found in the United States. Probably Mr. Judd is right. He is also on solid ground in the plans he outlines for their preservation. But the preservation of the game birds of North Dakota is largely up to the sportsmen of the state. Half a dozen game wardens are almost useless if the spirit to violate the law is widespread. The one way to put an end to violations of the game laws is to foster the spirit among sportsmen that any infraction of the game laws is not something to be winked at. or something rather clev er and admirable, but that it is just plain poor sportsmanship, verging on muckerism. Every sportsman in the state should be a volunteer game warden standing firmly for absolute obser vance of the law by himself and his companions, wether he is hunting where he is almost certain to be checked up by the game warden, or companions, whether he is hunting the nearest state officer. If that spirit can be thoroughly instilled in all sportsmen in the state —thank goodness many of them have it now—North Dakota will long be a sportsman's paradise, and we will have chicken, duck and pheasant shooting here for generations to come /X THE HOPE PIONEER If, on the the other hand, beating the game warden is looked upon as legitimate endeavor, our gam'e birds will be wiped out In a very few years.—Fargo Forum.
