The old gold trail to the Black
Hills, which played such important
part in the early development of Bis
marck and the territory southwest,
will be opened for travel within a
short time. Meeting of the directors
of the Devils Lake, Bismarck & Black
Hills trail was held this week, and a
final meeting will be held in Bismarck
in August, when plans for logging
and blazing the trail will be made.
From Devils Lake to Bismarck the
trail follows a well-defined system of
country roads, connecting all the
county roads, connecting all the

Information bureaus at points along
the Yellowstone Trail are proving
popular innovations, and are of great
service to tourists. The bureau at
Miles City week before last routed 25
tourists both ways, and furnished in
formation to 161 parties. The service
is free, and it is planned to estab

intervals next year. The trail is being
marked through Montana, and is gen

The old way of tightening wheels
costs as high as $2.50 per wheel. Spok

better, quicker job.
In many cases, it has even saved the
price of new wheels. That was the ex-

who says:

Stock men whose range is crowded
by settlers should be interested in, the
following opportunity to use National
Forest range:
I have the best located, best im
proved stock range on the Long Pine
division of the Sioux National Forest
for sale. It consists of 960 acres of
deeded land, all on a creek bottom
inside the timbered hills, with 150
acres under cultivation and now in
crop. All land is within one-half mile
of the creek, and all but 120 acres is
under fence.
Improvements: This property has
the most complete ranch improve
ments of any place on the Long Pine
hills. There is a six-room house,
abundance of barn room and feed
sheds, granary, steel windmill, imple
ment shed, corrals, telephone line, and
a complete outfit of farm implements.
All public range used is cut off from
South Dakota by a system of drift
Forest Range: There are approxi
mately 10 sections of Forest range
available for the stock owned on this
ranch. The public Forest range con
sists of lightly timbered, rolling land
well stocked with grass, giving ideal
range conditions. There is an abund
ance of hay land, both on the National
Forest and on the. deeded bottom
lands along the creek.
Connected with the deeded land,
and well fenced, there is a 3000-acre
pasture on the National Forest, which
is reserved for winter range. Both
the public range and deeded land are
well watered the year round.
National Forest Rights: With this
ranch there goes a range preference
for 300 head of cattle or horses.
For a nominal fee, the Forest Service
reserves this range to the ranch
owner, so that there is no danger of
the stock owner being suddenly de
prived of his range.
The ranch is now stocked with 325
head of extra good Herefords, includ
ing 125 cows and their calves, and 60
horses, including four work teams and
four saddle horses.
Location: This ranch is located in
Carter county, Montana, within ten
miles of Camp Crook, S. D. It has
telephone connection with Camp
Crook, and with Baker, Mont., and is
within one mile of a mail route.
Terms: This place will be sold
either with or without the stock.
Farm tools and 'cut hay and grain will
be invoiced at the time of sale. If
sold before harvest,' the crops go with
the land.

portunity, address LMC, Box 105,

Watford Guide:, G. B. Wolf of the
Auto Trail Blazing association of
Minneapolis in charge of blazing the
"Black Trail" from. Dickinson to Will
iston, was in the city Friday. Mr.
Wolf had just arrived from Killdeer
and says that the citizens of that
place want the trail to pass through
the new National park in the Killdeer
mountains, which would divert the
trail from Watford City to, Killdeer
through the Grassy Butte country.
He discovered that the business men
here did not favor any change of
route thaj would shut out Mary and
Grassy Butte and would not con
tribute toward the maintenance of the
road favored by the Killdeer people.
Watford City has expended .consider
able money on the road to Grassy
Butte and is naturally opopsed to the
change. The Grassy Butte road
would be used by fifteen farmers to
one on -the new road. The greatest
good to the greatest number should
influence the association in blazing
this trail. A compromise may pos
sibly be effected "hy ia cut-off a few
miles north of Grassy Butte. Mr.
Wolf expects to return after making
a more thorough investigation.

A hospital on wheels. That is what
the United States health car, which
is scheduled to tour North Dakota
some time this summer, is declared
to be by Dr. John W. Cox of the
state public health laboratory. He
has recently received word that the
federal car would be available and he
is busy making routings for it
through the state.
The car is sent out by the govern
ment to tell the people of the need
of preventive medicine, to give in
struction where requested and in gen
eral to aid in making the public health
the best possible.
In North Dakota, for instance, of
late there has been much discussion
of various cities' water supplies and
investigation will be made where
there is -a question as to the purity
of the water. The health car will
assist in this work if its services are
required. Federal health officials
have lately asserted that drinking
water placed on interstate trains must
be pure.

In view of the great prevalence last
year of Infantile Paralysis in the state
with its high mortality and the crip
pling affects on those who survived the
disease, every precaution should be
taken this year against another in
vasion of similar nature. The chief
barrier against disease and especially
infantile paralysis is that of sanitary
cleanliness. The State Board of
Health, in order to reach the masses
of the people, take this occasion to
notify and order every householder to
take special precautions towards
screening agains flies, removing from
his premises all garbage, dirt and
manure frequently and otherwise
maintaining his house and premises in
a sanitary condition at all time.
By order of State Board of Health.

It was the smallest kind of game that the Howell
Brothers, Richmond, Va., found when they had stalked
"the high cost of doing business" to its lair—nothing,
in fact, but the high cost of little errors.
The errors were picayune affairs—too smali even to
have been suspected, but in the aggregate, they made a
good sized bag.
And it isn't mere coincidence that after these penny
and nickel errors had been smoked out of the business,
•Howell Brothers' hardware store started a growth that
soon made it one of the most progressive businesses in

In either case it costs real money.
Mistakes in accounts payable are just as expensive.
And don't forget that errors in the books mean time
wasted in hunting for them—and a bookkeeper's time
is money.
The Howell Brothers, having caught the errors, looked
for the cause, and came upon human fallibility. The
obvious remedy for human error was something that

A good milk cow in a family is sec
ond in importance only to a good wife.
A milk cow should not be compelled
to stand around an old straw stack,
in mud, filth, snow and cold rains, or
housed in an old cold stable that has
not been cleaned out all winter and
then be expected to furnish good milk
for your babies. If you love your
wife and babies, you should take care
of your milk cow.
"Most potent of all single influences
in the building of this mightiest na
tion in history is the cow. Her sons
drew the plows which first cultivated
the land of the new world, hauled to
the market the products of the field,
and with slow energy, moved the chat
tels and household goods beyond the
mountains to new homes in the furth
er west.
They supplied the beef which is the
food of the Anglo-Saxon, race that
was never conquered since history be
gan. They furnished the shoes of the
pioneers who trod the unknown wilds
and made of them the farmsteads and
cities of our present enlightenment.
They gave the clothes and robes to
protect the pioneer against the de
stroying winds of winter and made
commerce possible before the railroad
was. They covered the chair upon
which he sat, filled the mattress upon
which he slept and glued together the
furniture he used.
The old cow is mother of the whole
bovine race. From the roadside weed
she manufactures the most nourishing
goods. She is the ever ready aid to
the farmer,- the pet of the rich man
and the ever help of the poor. She
is the economist of the people and the
conservator of their resources. She

Upon her products are built the great
business interests which center in the

Hunting Down the High
Cost of Errors
wasn't human, and couldn't err—and naturally they
installed a Burroughs Figuring Machine.
Closed Season on Errors
Error hunting is over now—there's no more game.
Today, all figures are turned over to the Burroughs.
All invoices are checked when they come in and state
ments before they are mailed. The result—no more
apologizing to irate customers.
All accounts payable are checked before cheque
mailed. Result—another source of leaks stopped.
Postings are proved and trial balance made up on the
machine. Result—the bookkeeper spends his time on
productive work—not error-chasing.
The Burroughs is used in taking inventory, for making
deposit slips—in short for all figuring where speed and
accuracy are desirable.
And Howell Brothers have found that in cutting down
the cost of errore, they have cut down the cost of doing
