Th« Worst Wurst and the Best Goods
"la this the best wurst you can
•end me?" asiked a lady who walked
Into a meat store with a package
Of that edible in her arm.
"Madam," answered the meat man,
"It is the
wurst we have."
"Well, it is the worst wurst I
"1 am sorry to hear that. The
best I can do is to try and send you
some better wurst in today's lot, but,
as I said, that is the best wurst we
have at present. I am sure, how
ever, that the wurst we are now mak
ing woud not be any worse than this
and it ought to be better. I assure
you that as soon as I get the wurst,
.that you will have the best of it.
We' have never given anyone tae
worst of it so long as we have been
in the wurst business, and you may
be sure tliat when we give you your
•wurst, it will be the best, for ouir
.worst wurst is better than the best
wurst cf our competitors."
But tho lady, whose eyes had taken
on a stare of glassiness, was seen to
throw up her hands and flee firom the
place, for she was afraid that the
worst was yet to come.
We do not handle the worst of any
thing—our goods are the best money

and merit the inspection of the beat

SEED GRAIN TO BE SCARCE.
Reports say that seed grain will
be' scarce for the 1911 crop in this
state. The farmers who have any of
last year's crop left should hang onto
it, and those who are fortunate
enough to ra!se good wheat this year
should not ship a grain of it out of
If there is not a sufficient quantity
in the state, the farmers will be com
pelled to get their seed from other
states and will run the risk of getting
foul seed in the grain.
Dr. H. W. Smith, a prominent
Crookston practitioner, passed thru
Minot this afternoon, bound for the
west by auto. He is on a pleasure
trip and may go as far as the coast.
Judging from the par which the in
abitants of the greater part of the
state have received, because of the
heavy drouth, it is iprobable that Jhe
heavy end of the automobile business
next year will come, if at all, after
the crops have been fully asisured.
North Dakota has seen seasons ful
ly as bad and perhaps worse, than the
present one, and has come out of the
trial with flying colors. Don't look
at tne situation through blue specta
cles, but talte a cheerful view ,all will
come out right in the end. If you
are in Business do not stalk or think
hard times. That sort of thing la
contagious and creates hard times.

HAS THE RIGHT SYSTEM
J. H. Howard of Glenburn is the
Right Sort of a Farmer For
It was refreshing for us to con
verse with our old friend, J. H.
Howard, from east of Glenburn, who
stopped in Minot for a few hours
Saturday on his way 'home from a
visit back in Missouri. Mr. How
ard's fatiier lives close to the Ozarks
where wonderful crops of corn and
other grain will be harvested The
rains have 'been plentiful. Most of
the fruit is a failure, tho there is a
big blackberry crop. Passing thru
Iowa, he noted that the small grains
were poor, but the corn is good, but
late. The potato crop in the Red
River valley is practically a failure.
That part of the state is worse off
than the western part even.
Concerning his own prospects, Mr.
Howard saidl. "I can manage to get
along nicely if I don't thresh a buafaei
of grain, tho I believe I will have a
fair crop. I will sell some straw
berries this year. My garden truck
will net me considerable, and then I
have my butter and eggs. Do you
know, we never go to the granary
for -any of our clothing, groceries,
fuel nd generally pay for the twine
and insurance besides. I take good
care of my garden. 1 can take you
into it and remove an inch or so of
the dust mulch and you will thnk that
a heavy rain must have just fallen,
the ground beneath it is so moist.

I raise my own trees, asparagus,
rhubarb, and strawberry plants and
besides, sell a good many dollars worth
of them every year. I don't want to
appear as tho I am bragging, but I
have a half section of land that I
believe is more free from weeds than
any other hialf section in the state,
I believe in keeping the weeds cut
down along the road too. I have
made this a standing offer for a num
ber of years. Go into my garden and
find a single weed, and I'll eat it. I
never hiad to eat a weed yet. A
