CAN STOCK RUN AT LARGE?
Although this question lias been
answered several times by the Inde
pendent to the best of our ability, we
have received so many inquiries late
4y that we feel that we should give
the facts once more just as they ar\
The question cannot be answered
positively, because the matter was
settled rather indefinitely. When W.
C. FaJbrtdk was auditor of Ward coun
ty, the commissioners decided to
allow the people to vote upon till*
subject. Blr. Fab rick prepared the
copy for the ballots which read thus:
"For abolishment of herd law."
"Against" abolishment of herd law."
(Now this was a very foolish thing
to do, because there was no inten
tion of abolishing the herd law en
tirely, because there should be such
a law or not. Whait Mr. Fabrick
should have done was to have prepar
ed his ballot something like this.
"For stock running at large."
"Against stcck Tunning at large."
Th.e question when submitted to
a vote, was carried by a big majority
in favor of "abolishing the herd law.
No test case has ever been made,
though the Independent believes that
the Supreme court would decide that
the p«oiple really meant for .stock
not to run at large and would very
likely construe it as such. The in
dependent certainly would advise
everybody to place certain restric
tions upon their stock running at
large, tor if you do not, and any
damage is done, you will probably
have to pay the damages.
NOT SO BAD.
Jno. J". "Werner, a young man and a
hustling farmer living six miles south
.f Bowden, had a flax crop this year
wh' «Fi yielded a return of $17.50 per
acre from land which he purchased at
the school land sale a year ago for
514 per acre. Only another instance
of what North Dakota land is capable
of doing, even in the dryest of
drought years. He said that he put
in 120 acres of flax on the quarter he
purchased from the state, which yield
ed seven bushels to the acre, bring
ing him 12.50 per bushel. The lanu
cost him $14.50 per acre, or $2,240
•|-and if he had had it ail in flax the
crop would have brought him a gross
return of $2,800, some $500 more than
the land coat. Not so bad an Invest
ment for Mr. Werner, or anyone, and
certainly an argument for better
prices for North Dakota dirt. The
returns from many farms through the
southern part of this country and
down in Kidder county are giving that
section a deserved boost in public
confidence and It will not be many
years, before land there will be worth
as much as it is anywhere in the state,
as much as it is anywhere in the state,
other conditions being eqiial.—Fesseu

Theo. Helming, a Lansford farmer,
experimented with alfalfa last season,
I and as a result, is convinced that this
plant can be grown with profit in
North DaKota. From the South Dako
ta experiment station, he secured 160
of the Siberian plants, fifty each of the
Obi, Cossack and Desert varieties.
The Cassack grew best of all, and
from all of the plants, he secured nine
ounces of seed which he will plant
next year, besides he has some of the
old plants left. His experiment will
be watched with interest.
