Buy Your Woolen
Suits Here
Take a tip from us about that new suit you are
planning on buying
Do you know that tailors now find it im­
possible to buy goods that's all wool They
have to use a combination of about half wool
and half cotton and are compelled to charge
you the same as they formerly did for an all
woolen suit or overcoat. There simply isn't
the wool in the country and that's one way to
conserve and at the same time clothe the body.
We still have in stock hundreds of all wool­
en suits, made up in the height of fashion, well
tailored and made to fit and to look well. Af­
ter this stock is gone, we can't promise to sell
you any more strictly all woolen suits.
Better get busy and look our lines over and
pick out one of those beautiful, nice warm,
soft woolen suits. You'll never be sorry.

Our Amortized plan runs twenty years. The Federal Government plan runs thirty
sjx years and requires semi-annual interest payments. Our plan has many ex­
cellent features not found in any other farm- loan of which the fol­
lowing area few that every borrower will appreciate:
Interest payable annually instead of semi-annually.
Interest payable at any time of the year in advance of due date for which payment a liberal discount will
be credited for prepayment.
The entire loan can be paid up within one year or at any time thereafter, with no greater penalty than is
required to pay off any ordinary Wn and this can be done without a lot of delay or correspondence..
One, two, three or more annual interest payments may be made at.anyjiir.e in advance, at any time of
the year for which liberal discounts will be credited for prepayment.
On our Amortized Plan you pay interest and principal in twenty equal annual installments of $91.25 per
thousand per annum
For a loan 12000.CO 3on would pay the annual fum of (Iwo times $1)4.25), or $188.f.0for 3 loan of j3G0.C0
you would pay three limes 194.25 j.er annum, for (he tliomai five 1inie $94.26 or?4C1.25 etc., plus a reason
able commission.
The co& of a loan of $2600.00 under our phn for a term of twenty years, if it was
allowed to run the full twenty years, would be as follows:
Twenty equal annual payments of $188.50 or a total of $3770.00 which amount pays inteie=t and principal
in full cancelling the loan.
a term
for interest, and in twenty years you pay out in interest 20 times 8100.00 or $2000.00 which amount added to the
unpaid principal of $"000.00 makes the total cost the sum of $4000.00 or $230.00 more than our p!an.
Our company last year had applications for farm loans amounting to the «um of Thirty Four Million Dol
ars and closed loans for one-half that amount on seventeen million dollars.
The amount available this year will be much less than last year while the demand will doubtless be much
greater. For this reason, those who want to be sure of getting a farm loan should place with us their applica
cnitl cut delay, no matter if the loan does not become due Jan. 1 next.
Farmers having loans maturing this fall do not hesitate to call on me and get'any additional information
The low rates we offer will mean the early exhaustion of the available funds, so we warn you not to delay
with your application.

H. H. Steele, Member of Commission
Arrived—More Than $100,000,000
Added Under New Law
The Tax Commission is holding
hearings at the county seat, in all the
counties of the state, upon the assess­
ment of money and credits. A field
agent has been employed who has
made investigations in each of the
counties, and upon information secur­
ed by him, parties who are believed to
have moneys and credits which were
not returned for assessment are be­
ing notified to appear before the Tax
Commission in the county where they
The object on the part of the Tax
Commission in taking this action is
to effectively put into operation a new
money and credit law, which was pass­
ed by the last session of the legisla­
ture. This law classifies moneys and
credits, taking it out from under an
assessment heretofore made upon the
same basis as other property, and as­
sessing it at the flat rate of three
mills on the dollar. Ulider the old
law moneys and credits were assessed
the same as real-estate and personal
property, under which if money and
credits were returned in many dis­
tricts, the tax would amount to a con­
fiscation of the property, as the
amount of tax would, in many in
stances, be greater than the income: P°^
received from the property. jperienceu.
Under the old law it became the
habitual custom of tax-payers to eith­
er fail or refuse to list this class of
property, but under the new law the
rate of tax being so low there is no
reason why every taxpayer should not
make a full return.
It is considered that the action tak­
en by the Tax Commission will have
the moral effect of securing a full list
ment of all property which heretofore
escaped its share of the cost of gov­
In the 1917 assessment but $2,000,
.000.00 was returned by the taxpayers
of the state on moneys and credits,
while in 1918 under the new law more
than a hundred millions have been
added to this amount.
Stock Train on G. N. Runs Into Open
Switch—Four Cars Demolished—
Many Cattle Injured, Some Lost.
A stock train over the Great Nor­
thern Thursday night ran into an open
switch near Genoa and eleven cars
were ditched. Four cars were com­
pletely demolished and dozens of head
of fine Montana steers were crippled
or killed outright. The engine left
tue track and tipped over on its side.
Engineer Joe Joyer of this city was
badly injured, having sustained a
fractured ankle. The fireman jumped
to safety
Federal inspectors are conducting
an inquiry as to the cause of the
wreck as circumstances point to foul
play Just prior to the arrival of the
stock train a passenger train passed
the switch and everything was o. k.
The wreck atracted many farmers
living in the vicinity, as the bawling
of the injured cattle filled the air and
such animals as were not disabled s
caped from the demolished cars and
ranged wildly about the country, and
it is reported that as yet the employes
of the road have been unable to ac­
count for all of them The injured
cattle were sold to butchers, who
flocked to the scene as soon as the re­
port was spread and by morning the
immediate vicinity of the wreck re­
sembled nothing more than a slaugh­
ter house. Some of the cattle pinned

First Annual Sale by theHalvorSOn
Shorthorn Farms Will be Held in
Minot Saturday, October 12
The Halvorson Shorthorn Stock
Farms will hold their first annual
stock sale at the Roth & Lintion barns
in this city on Saturday, October 12.
The Halvorson farms have been noted
for years as breeders of some of the
finest Shorthorns produced in North
Dakota and this sale will undoubtedly
attract many buyers from all sections
of the state as well as many from ad­
joining states. The Shorthorns bred
at the Halvorson ranch are what are
known as the dual purpose type, prin­
cipally but many of the specimens of­
fered will include animals of the beef
type as well. Competent judges of
the merits of pure bred registered
Shorthorn stock pronounce the Hal­
vorson herd the finest in the west.
Competent auctioneers will be in at­
tendance and every facility offered
buyers to inspect prospective pur­
chases and arrange terms. Dairy­
men and stockmen thruout this sec­
tion should make it a point to attend
as it will be a matter of regret to
have stock of this quality leave the
state. Statistics show that the dairy
indusry in this section has grown by
leaps and bounds during the past four
years and this fact alone no doubt ac­
counts for the fact that western North
Dakota has held its own despite the
poor crops and other draw backs ex-
Ward County Soldier Charged With
County Auditor R. W. Kennard left
Sunday for .Camp Grant, 111., with
records in the case of a young man
who was inducted into the army from
Ward county, but who was picked up
in Chicago as a deserter. This is a
very serious charge which is punish­
able by death. In one or two in­
stances, the President has commuted
such sentence to a dishonorble dis­
charge and thirty years at hard la­
Small Blaze at Bader & Rozen Store
The fire department was called out
by a small blaze at Bader & Rozen's
clothing store at 11:30 o'clock Tues­
day night. The tailor had forgotten
to turn off the electric iron, which
grew red hot, burning a hole thru the
table, falling onto the floor, which also
was soon set on fire. The stock was
not damaged in the least and the fire

The War in a Nut Shell.
The Allies have made wonderful
strides during the past week on- all
Bulgaria has sued for peace and is
now out of the war for good. An
armistice has been declared with Bul­
garia and that country is moving its
troops back to within its own borders.
Bulgaria will accept terms of peace
imposed by the Allies, to be made
known at the final settlement of the
war. Bulgaria is the first of Ger­
many's allies to lay down arms. This
is a very important Allied victory,
for this cuts Germany off from Tur­
key, and in view of the recent Allied
successes in that country, it is ex­
pected that Turkey also will sue for
peace within a short time. The Al­
lies will now have an opportunity to
place an iron band around Germany
and Austria, and one can expect
something to be doing with Austria
within a short time.
Italy has remained quiet but it is
believed that Foch will soon begin a
great Italian offensive.
The Hindenburg line is crumbling
in the west. St. Quentin has fallen
and the Allies have taken Cambrai.
The Belgians have won a great vic­
tory. Germany is preparing to evac­
uate France. The Germans are re­
moving their big guns from the Bel­
gian coast. Germans have evacuated
.uens and Armentieres, the keys to
tne great coal fields in France.
Since July the Allies have taken
250,000 prisoners and 3,869 guns, to
say nothing of the great number of
the enemy who have been slaughtered.
Foch has thrown in his reserves
and it looks like he is trying to end
the war before winter. Present events
have a tendency to give the Kaiser
sleepless nights.
New Real Estate Firm Establish
The National Land and Adjustment
Co., have established offices in the
First International bank block and
have begun an active campaign in the
real estate field. They do a general
brokerage "business in this line and
in addition will handle collections
from business houses and profession­
al men. C. A. Sherman, an attorney
who recently removed his offices to
this city from Portal, is in active
charge and is assisted by G. J. Cough
lin who for several years has been
closely identified with a prominent
Minot firm handling real estate. Mr.
Coughlin will give practically his en­
tire attention to real estate. Both
gentlemen are hustlers and already
their operations have reached consid­
erable proportions, having disposed of
seven farms during the past three
weeks of business. Attorney Sher­
man for the past 11 years has been a
prominent attorney at Portal, where
he enjoyed an extensive practice arid
was an active participant in baseball
and other sports, being known as one
of the best all-round athletes along
the boundary.

Mail Your Xmas Packages by Oct. 31.
All Christmas mail and packages o|
gifts for the boys in France must be

authorities. Tlie government is de­
termined that there shall be no repe­
tition of the experiences of the postal
authorities last year when Xmas
packages in many instances were not
received by the boys in the trenches
until April. The European mail at
this time is heavy and the public
should do their share towards assist­
ing the department in. expediting de­
liveries by proper wrapping of pack

dress conspicuously as required and
