"i FVTF 1" '"-V* ,** S WILLISTON 0EAPH1C 1 NOTICE OF MEETING A call is hereby issued to all resi dents of Williams County for a meet ing to be held in the Court House at Williston on Saturday, May 3rd, 1913, at 2:00 P. M. This meeting is called for the purpose of organising the Williams County Better Farming Association. This movement is based on the idea and the fact that the soil is the greatest source of all wealth and is, therefore, the universal bank er. It is to be hoped that this move ment will enlist the services of every patriotic and progressive man and woman in the county, for it has to deal with a problem that is the very foundation of all our prosperity and progress. It might be stated here that fifteen counties in the state al ready have such organizations, and they are doing splendid work and more counties are gradually falling in line. It is to be hoped that our citizens will attend this meeting in large numbers so as to make this movement a great success in this county, for the time is fast coming when the county that does not organ ize along these lines will be a back number. Efforts are being made to secure Mr. Thomas P. Cooper of Far go, Secretary and General Manager of the North Dakota Better Farming Association to be present for the oc casion, and if so it will be a great treat to hear him. U. L. Burdick, Temporary Chairman. F. P. Bergman, Temporary Secretary. N. B. A copy of this notice has been sent out to other papers about the county giving the date as April 26th. The date has been changed to May 3rd, as given above, because Mr. Coop er could not be here on the 26th. AT THE LIBRARY New books added this week are as follows: Corporal Cameron, by Ralph Con nor, is a story of the mounted po'ice of the Northwest the tale of a man who "makes good" after leaving Scot land under a cloud. American Stationary Engineering, by W. E. Crane, covers power-plant operation in a practical way and deals in a clear, plain fashion witv stiam engines.

The Youth's Companion has a ser ies of tales in the recent numbers dealing with old days on the Missouri, when the river was the scene of a goodly lot of traffic and adventure. ENTERTAINED Gates Opera house was transform ed last Friday evening into a cozy, at tractive, home-like place through the combined efforts of the ten hosts and hostesses, who were "at home" to some one hundred and sixty guests. Yellow and white formed the base of the color scheme, most appropriate to these sunshinny spring days, and hand painted yellow tulips were the favors. Mr. and Mrs. M. S. Williams, Dr. and Mrs. Dochterman, Mr. and Mrs. S. Brownell, Mr. and Mrs. F. H. Smith, and Mr. and Mrs. E. R. Brown son, gave their many friends a de lightful evening, beginning with grand-nola, followed by a delicious luncheon and rounding out the festivi ties with music and dancing.

THE BATTLE RAGED While making his way painfully to ward his room last Monday, much handicapped by a pair of pinching shoes, and while deeply engrossed with thoughts about the same, the Graphic reporter was suddenly brot, out of his reverie when a great noise emitted from a semi-vacant lot near the school house. A pause,—and be hold! Floating gallantly from the top of one of the lumber piles was an American flag, and behind the lum ber, stronly entrenched, was a com pany, yes a regiment, of soldiers. Another brave company was making an attack upon the stronghold. Old broomsticks, pieces of lath, and -just sticks, were tho weapons. There was much hammering of the lumber piles —commands—and suddenly it all stop ped as the captain of the attacking force-! cslled out:—"Wait a minute— here comes Jimmy—wait till he gets in he'll light." Jimmy got in and the battle raged. It was hard to tell which side was the enemy. There was ap parently no victory for either side, as the two divisions soon consolidated— mutually*—and proceeded to hunt up something else for excitement. At the end there came an echo across from the school house something like this:— Oh, were you ne'er a school boy! And did you never meet far down the street With plumes and banners gay, While the kettle for the kettle drum Bade you march, march, away! And then the echo reverberated and said more which went like this:— We charged upon a flock of geese one day, And put them all to flight, Except one old sturdy gander, Who thought to show us fight. But our captain knew a thing or two, And quickly wheeled the van. We routed him, we scouted him, Nor lost a single man. Scraps of this episode continued to be heard, and memory called back the patient little teacher who drilled it into our head (now-a-days bean) many moons previous. Guy Humphreys, a linotype opera tor of Minot, has just received the good r.ews from New York that the Mergenthaler Co., has accepted his patent upon which he has been work ing for some time. The improvement is very important and will soon be in use on every typesetting machine. Mr. Humpiireys is of an inventive turn of mind. It is understood that he has received quite a nice sum of money for his patent. IOWA MAN STUCK WITH PITCHFORK A farmer living in the Northern part of Iowa stuck himself in the leg with a pitch fork. The wound would not heal and for two years he had a running' sore. He tried all the com mon salves and liniments and some times ihe sore would heal, but it al ways broke open again. Finally he healed it up to stay healed with Al len's Ulcerine Salve. This salve is one of the oldest rem edies in America and since 1869 it has been known as the only salve power ful enough to cure chronic ulcers and old sores of long standing. Allen's Ulcerine Salve acts by drawing out the poisons and healing the sore from the bottom up. It is so powerful that it heals new cuts and sores in one-third the time that com mon salves and liniments take. And it heals burns and scalds without a scar.

It appears that there are a great many things under ths department of Streets and Improve ments. Commissioner Carney of this department looked up the statute and after consulting it a minute said:— According to this I am to do every thing that the rest of the council leaves undone." The commissioners adjourned to meet Monday night, April 14th, after being in session just thirty minutes. The Monday night meeting was ad journed till Friday, owing to the fact that Commissioner Bruegger was forced to be absent from the city. LOANS I want first and second J.
