THE SNOW STORM.
Heavy Storm Raged for Three
Days and Three Nights Thru
North and South Dakota,
Minnesota ihru to Kansas.—
No Suffering Here.
A terrific snow storm raged
for three days"and three nights
in North and South Dakota,
Minnesota and as far south as
Kansas taking in a number of
other states. The storm was
practically over Monday morn
ing. The world was white, cov
ered with afoot or more of snow
which in places had been piled
high. The ground had not been
frozed to any extent before the
snow, so that when it melts,
most of it will soak into the
ground, doing it an immense lot
of good. In Minot no one suff
ered particularly save the deliv
eryman or the man who was out
of coal and could not borrow any
from his neighbor. Business
was not exactly suspended, but
it suffered a good deal. No
farmers were in the city except
those who were snow bound.
The trains were blockaded for
some time but got thru sometime
Sunday, with mail. The Mohall
Flyer remained here on Saturday
being annuled. This snow will
be excellent for lawns and young
trees and fruit bushes. Its more
than likely to remain all winter.
IN FOURTH ROUND
Curley Ullrich Lands Lucky Blow
on Local Man's Jaw in First
Round, But Plucky Fighter
Stayed in the Game Till the
Mark iNelson was defeated in
the fourth round by Curley Ull
rich of Superior, Wis., at a' hard
fought contest at Jacobson's
opera house Monday night. The
match was to be a fifteen round
go. Ullrich's friends bet consid
erable money that Nelson would
not last ten rounds.
llrich succeeded in landing a
terrific blow on Nelson's left jaw
in the early part of the first
round, sending his plucky adver
sary to the floor. Nelson took
a count of eight then jumped to
his feet and went after Ullrich as
tho nothing had happened. Ull
rich kept landing hard on Nel
son's left jaw during the entire
fight, and frequently sent him to
the floor. Nelson gave Ullrich
sornp blows to think about, but
the lucky blow that Ullrich land
ed in the first round put Nelson
out of condition, and made the
fight a certain one 3r the Supe
rior man. The lovers of boxing
got their money's worth.
Ullrich is a clever man and
challenges any man in the world
to fight him at his own weight,

It took years of experiments to perfect this machine, but 'now it is
more nearly perfect than any Fanning Mill on the market. It will separate
Wheat from Oats, and take out your Wild Oats, too.

along in some fashion without one, but considering the small cost of the
mill, you will pay for it several times over the first year.
