Attorney W. B. Overson, has just re
ived word from Piesident F. B. Lin
field, Pie&ident of ihe Montana Agri
cultural Experiment Station at B( zeman,
Montana, that he will in all probability
be in Williston during the North Dakota
institute on February 19 and 20. This
section of the country is exceptionally
fortunate in being able to secure the
operation of President Liiifield at (hit)
institute as he is one of the best in
formed men on improved methods of
agricultural sn the Northwest and the
fact that our section of the country is no
similar in character to Montana land,
will make his suggestions particularity
yaluable to us. Mr. Overson has been
endeavoring to secure the whole of the
ins'itute force here for the dates men*
tioned to make a joint iustitute for Mon
tana and Norfh Dakota, but owing to
the early date at which the dates were
set for institutes in both states, it was
found impossible. It is expected how
ever, that next year will see a joint in
stitute at Williston, the value of which
will be apparent to.eyeryone.

World's Greatest Battleship.
On last Saturday the World's
greatest battleship, Dread
nough, was launched at Ports
mouth, England. It is by far
the largest battleship afloat and
costs $7,500,000. It is built aft
er new military ideas gained by
English experts in the Japanese
Russian War. The ship carries
principally great 12 inch guns
and will be able to fire ten shots
a minute from these guns at an
enemy. The strength ofthe guns
has been almost doubled and it
is reported that the armor of the
ship is almost impenetrable. The
ship is an experiment based on
the knowledge gained in the re
cent war and until it is given a
trial others will not be built.
