We Think So Too The man in the east when asked to donate a small sum of money to ward a "save the babies" fund, who replied that "the parents who are re sponsible for them have no more right to expect others to provide necessities for their children than for their cats and dogs," would last as long in this section of Montana as a small snowball would last in the place-Sherman said war was.—Glen dive Monitor. Farm Boys and City Life The current issue of Farm and Fireside contains an article which shows how agricultural colleges de velop in many farm boys a taste for the city Following is~~ an ex tract: "A freshman at the agricul tural college arrives very often with unpolished shoes. He has not learn ed to visit the barber at regular in tervals. In the sophomore year a transformation is noticeable. He is much smoother. He speaks more eas ily. Association with persons of his own age has done much to improve him. And in the senior year he has taken on the dress and most of the ways anjl mannerisms of the near city citizen. "Four years of college have made a new man, and the folks at home have long ago made up their minds that William is to be employed in the Department of Agriculture, or he is to be an instructor in the college, or he is to be a grain-inspector, or he hopes to be a lecturer in the extension department of some college, or he' finds employment with some big im plement house. "It takes a strong, determined character to withstand the allure ments that are inevitable to college life. It is only human to expect that the boy would much prefer getting up just in time to slip into class at eight o'clock. It is so much more pleasant than turning out at four or five to milk a dozen cows. Even if the farm home be equipped with easy chairs, electric lights, a bathtub and furnace. It nevertheless is Still an isolated place, and the boy's vision goes far beyond the hills that sur round it." Currency Legislation A Washington dispatch says that a fixed determination to have cur rency legislation passed at this ses sion of congress was accepted by members of the house and senate as President Wilson's text for the cur rency message which hev presented personally to congress. Both Democrats and Republicans saw in the carefully worded appeal of the president an earnest conviction that the money situation must be dealt with before congress adjourns 'and preparations were made to begin committee work on the administra tion bill which soon will be intro duced in the house by Representative Carter Glass and in the senate by Senator Owen The first authoriative statement on the president's message was critical. It came from Republican Leader Mann of the house, who saii the mes sage was a "fine example of classical English, but there is nothing moro to it, unless it be considered as a threat that patronage will be with held until a banking and currency bill is passed." Representative Mann criticised the bill as "stolen from the Aldrich mon etary report, with a few radical pro visions taken from the Bryan plat form mixed in.'' On the senate side many Republi cans. were of the opinion that the president's message was a fiat dec laration that congress must act at once on the currency question. They believe is sets forth the president's position as being so positive on that point that he would call another ex I *Y ANNOUNCEMENT-- Bad Conditions A recent issue of the Special Bul letin of the state Pure Food Depart ment has the following to say about slaughterhouses:— "Probably nowhere in the state will there be found worse conditions with regard to the handling of food pro ducts than those which are seen at the, majority of the slaughterhouses. Here the conditions are far from san itary far from what is proper in the handling of animals intended for hu man food. Often the place where the animal is slaughtered is only an old shack, filthy and dirty, with no con veniences and no way of excluding flies and vermin. Back of this may be a mud hole where the refuse, in testines and often dead animals are thrown and the hogs about to be slaughtered are permitted to live up on the same, thus rendering their flesh unfit for consumption. Aside from this, the conditions are at times so in tolerate that it is hardly possible for a persons to live with comfort in the neighborhood of these unsanitary and unearthly places. "There sno necessity for this, and the time has come when the people are demanding that these places be kept in shape and that sanitary conditions be provided. There will never be sat isfaction until we have municipal slaughterhouses and all animals kill ed under proper inspection. The De partment is determined, however, dur ing the present year, to carry on a campaign to do away with the kind of slaughterhouses now in general use, and to see that proper places are pro vided for the keeping and slaughter ing of animals intended to be used as articles of food. Those who own such places, unless they take steps to comply with the requirements of our Sanitary Inspection Law, which is stringent on this matter, will be prose cuted, for they have had at least four years* notice at frequent intervals that the conditions of these places were unsatisfactory and could not be tolerated. What is the condition of the slaughterhouse in your commun ity? The people of the community are interested and have a right to know and to demand that these places shall be kept in proper shape." Whittenberg Hospital Auxiliary The hospital- auxiliary is composed of a band of Williston ladies who have volunteered to aid the hospital. This organization is little over'a year old. It meets once a month at the homes where the ladies are invited to meet. From dues and collections taken up at the monthly meetings the auxil iary raised over $160.00 the first year. Through the efforts of the auxiliary the hospital laundry was provided with a washing machine last fall. Some of the ladies looking over the hospital thought that it would im prove the rooms upstairs to have them oil painted. The auxiliary de cided to defray the expenses and the contract was let to Mr. Braseth. The renovation of the rooms and hall have greatly improved the upstairs. In addition to this another hospital aid, Buford Hospital Auxiliary, has put up new curtains in the hospital. Mrs. Carl Rustad, Mrs. Fred Jennie and Mrs. O. Morten together with a num ber of other ladies of Buford are ar dent workers in the hospital cause to make the hospital as cheery and as comfortable as possible for the sick. The Buford ladies have donated a number of useful articles for the hos pital such as table scarfs for the sick rooms, woolen blankets and towels, sheets and pillow cases. The June meeting of the Williston Auxiliary was held at the church basement. Mrs. Dr. C. Jones and Mrs. Hogan entertained. There was a good turn-out and a nice collection was taken up. The present officers are Mrs. C. Wingate, pres., and Miss Alinda Hougen sec. and treasurer. The matron of the hospital, Miss -Enghove just entered upon a well de served vacation. Miss Nelson, Miss Larson and Miss DeNoy have taken up their duties at the hospital. These are all trained nurses. Miss Nelson and Miss Larson have enjoyed the deaconess training at the _deaconers home in Brooklyn, N. Y. Grown people as a rule do not be lieve fairy tales, unless they are printed in seed catalogs. WILL18T0N GRAPHIC We wish to announce to our friends and customers that we have installed in our candy kitchen an ice cream plant and are now in a position to fill any order from a pint to five gallons. We buy the richest cream from tuberculin test ed cows and make the genuine pure home-made ice cream. Give us a trial and see what kind of ice cream we make. tra session of congress to c'ispose of the matter. As soon as the bill is introduced both the senate and house banking and currency committees will get down to work and early reports on both sides are expected. A plea for more sheep on the farms which might well be addressed to North Dakota farmers as well as to those of Illinois has been issued by the farmers' institute of the latter state. A bulletin issued by that body which should be of general interest to farmeis in states tributary to the South St. Paul market reads as fol lows: There should be a few sheep on every farm in Illinois. It is always admitted thai- a few horses, or a few cattle, a few pigs and some poultry must be kept on every farm because they are necessary and economical why not sheep? If dogs bother the sheep, shoot the dogs. Perhaps the chief reason for not raising more sheep is that most people do not un derstand them, but they are easily understood when one begins to deal with them. A farmer in Southern Illinois told the writer, this week, that his flock paid 85.7 per cent* on the investment. He said that the lambs each year sell for as much as the mothers cost and that the wool pays the cost of keep. Each year the flock produces as many lambs as there are ewes. A 100-pound lamb sells for $7, as much as the mother cost. The niother will shear a 9-pound fleece that will sell for $1.80 and this will pay for the keep of the ewe and lamb. The average ewe will weigh 120 pounds, and at 5 cents will bring $6.00, a profit of 85.7 per cent on the investment. Sheep Relight to clean up neglected places—in the potato patch, the pig lots, the stubblefield, fence rows and everywhere. In Minnesota it was found that out of 480 kinds of weeds, there were only 50 kinds that sheep would not eat. The best time to sell' a sheep is when it is a lamb. If it weighs 80 pounds, is fat and has the quality, it will sell as a prime lamb at any sea son of the year. This is the popular weight for a market lamb, but it must be fat if it is not fat it will be dis criminated against. Alfalfa hay and a little grain or corn silage is a good ration for use in finishing lambs for market. The quality of a lamb is in dicated by short legs, fine feet, and compact form. Male lambs should receive attention when from 8 to 16 days old, and neg lect means that the lambs will bring less money on the market. With a meat animal shortage or sev eral million head in this country, and with the price of meat fast putting it out of reach of some of us there can be no doubt that the sheep industry of Illinois will be profitable for many years to come and a few sheep on every farm will help to decrease the shortage, clean up waste places, con serve fertility and increase the bank account. GARDEN VALLEY We all enjoyed the Graphic picnic and the rain which followed. Mr. Van Deberg and Mr. Lee Ham ilton drove to Ambrose last week to look over the country. Garden Valley people turned out Good Roads Day and grad&d a good piece of road at Camp Creek. Jno. Hamilton who is attending court spent Sunday at home with his family. Alberta Francis spent a few days visiting friends in Garden Valley. The people of Garden Valley dem onstrated the fact that they can al ways have good times no matter what conditions are imposed upon them. The rainy morning found many dis appointed people—but shortly after breakfast the numerous neighbors re ceived phone calls from Mr. J. H. Hamilton to come to his place for a good old rousing 4th. Over fifty-five people assembled there and all the festivities that go to make the 4th en joyable was participated in by young and old alike. After dinner every body adjourned to the "race track" and numerous feats performed such as ladies races, mens races, fat mans race, standing broad jump and run ning broad jump which were all start ed by the report of a huge cracker. The ball game was the next feature on the program, between the Flicker tails and Garden Valley which proved exciting and-thrilling from the start to the finish. The rain stopped the game but the score stood fifty to five in favor of Garden Valley but the oth er side declared that they would have won and that there is sometimes vic tory in defeat. During the day, fire crackers and fire works could be heard from every nook and corner of the outdoor premise and when all the sports were over the party went into /'W -7^ W THE PARIS CANDY KITCHEN A.

AFFORDS GOOD OPPORTUNITY MAN HERE LOOKING OVER POS SIBILITIES FOR ESTABLISH ING BRICK PLANT N. Weigel, of Hebron, was in Wil liston during the past week looking over the prospects for the establish ing of a brick manufacturing plant here. He was very much impressed with the local conditions and said that Williston afforded a great oppor tunity for this sort of an industry. While here he talked over the matter with a number of local men, who have been interested in securing a brick making plant for this city Anybody who has been educated up to the carbaret standard will know how badly the orioles and thrushes sing these mornings. A catcher has been suspended for throwing dirt in an umpire's face. If only mud slinging could be similarly penalized in the bigger game' of life! A man who won't take part in'a parade with a sash on, or a banner in his hands, when he gets a chance to do it, is evidently not in'sympathy with the modern idea of publicity. It is to be noted that the Russian woman who was arrested in New York for an improper dance has re turned to Europe with a poor opinion of American standards of art. A hunter of big game in Africe captured a crocodile which had just swallowed a buck. Evidently our fish stories are tame beside the thrillers that come from the juhgles. The announcement nf a govern ment surgeon that dirty money is not dangerous is a relief. For we had all made up our minds to take the chance. A minister in Philadelphia was re buked for adding to his clerical oc cupation the side issue of raising onions for sale. He was warned the latter business was not in good odor in the ministry. Concerning the report that a Chi cago man slapped his wife with a beefsteak, it certainly seems improb able that he would resort to so cost ly an implement of domestic disci pline. The press dispatch stating that a famous aviator had died a natural death makes one wonder what is a natural death for an aviator. A Chicagoan was done out of $1, 200 by two Englishmen on a "sure thing" game. This recordbreaking happening naturaly was given first page place. '.'.v Thursday, July 16, 191$.
