and Friends of the Minot

I am sorry to say that it looki as
though I was not only a Town Crier,
but a gosh darned liar, and to say
that about myself after doing all this
talking about truthful advertising, is
some shovel full, but here is how it
happened. We started the vigilance
committee out about noon yesterday
to locate Old Man Grouch, and had
detailed one of them to keep an eye
on him until we were ready, he was
equipped with a complete
outflt and was to wire us b.
about 5 o'clock the exact location of
the eulprit. The committee reported
about 3:47 that no trace of the above
mentioned Grouch could be found.
W« doubled the committee and as he
has not been located yet, and it is
tine to go to press, we have detailed
thirty-six Criers to keep an eye open
for him, and as soon as he is located
1 he will be confind in the city jail and
John Reed will be his constant guard
until the newly appointed time is set
:for the shooting, and the public will
be fully notified of the time. If you
shonld never hear any thing further
abAut this you will know that there
is not a Grouch in the city, and it is

sure did, and that is not all, you are
making lots of them every day right
now. "You don't believe it," well I
will prove it to you. Here is one
of the worst mistakes that can be
made, and every Town Crier, business
man, lawyer, doctor, merchant, manu
facturer and farmer is making it ev
ery day, and some days they make
the -same mistake several times. I
know it for I was up town yesterday
and took particular notice of it. I
made it twice myself. What do you
think of that? You walk leisurely
down street meet a friend, he says
how is business? You say rotten,
.in all kinds of words. Now this is
the rottenest way that we can go
about it to make business better. Sit
down in your office, store or parlor,
and figure out an advertisement or
scheme to make business better, and
in a few days or weeks you can truth
fully say, "Not so bad". Try it to
day, and when you meet that_friend

and the same question is asked, say
"It might be worse", and we will soon

Just as predicted, that Bankers'
dinner was some dinner, and it makes
us think just how much we have to
be thankful for. We are thankful
that we have a man like Kurth who
can finger out and full off an enter-
wireless tainment like that most of all, but
there are several things more that
we should be thankful for. Now
don't think for a minute that I am
going to tell you the whole story of
that meeting, for I am not, and if
you were not there you may be a dol
lar ahead in cash, but you are about
five dollars out of knowledge and you
have nothing to be thankful for, but
fQr the ones that were there we
should be thankful that our money is
not in the bank of 1888, and that we

the dream was told is prima facia evi

woke up, for which we should be
thankful. And we are living in an

ants may have the honor of presiding
at one of those extremery business

District Tournament at Minot, March
4th and 5th
The Northwest High School Bas
ket Ball tournament to decide .the
championship of the seventh district,
will be played at Minot, in the Nor
mal School gymnasium, March 4th
The tournament will be in charge
of Geo. E. Mueller, physical director
of the Minot Normal School. The
officials to take charge of the tourna
ment have not as yet been decided up
Teams eligible to this district are:
VVilliston- Stanley, Minot, Berthold,
Drake, Velva, Granville, Towner, Ana
moose, Harvey, Rugby, Bottineau,
Willow City and Omemee.
Williston, Stanley, Bottineau and
Minot are considered the strongest
contenders for district honors, with
Omemee and Harvey as "dark horses"
of the race.
Williston is improving each game
and will no doubt make a desperate
fight. They boast of one victory over
the fast Stanley five.
Stanley high will also be a serious
contender. Stanley broke even with
Williston in two games and only lost
to the Minot high by one field goal.
Bottineau with victories over the
Kenmare and Bowbells quints will
bring a fast team to represent that
city. It was this team that recently
broke Egeland high school's record of
ten straight victories.
The Minot high, as usual, will enter
a fast team that will make all step
lively to 'nose out'. The Minot tos
sera have won two games from Wil
liston and one from Stanley and will
make a hard fight for the banner.
Omemee with their string of fifteen
victories before defeat will be a dark
horse in the race. Harvey also is
an unknown quantity. They have
defeated everyone in their section and
may spring a surprise on basket ball
Teams entering the District Tour
nament must notify the director of
their respective district on or before
TAKEN UP—One grey horse, weight
about 1000 lbs, one bay mare, wt.
1000 lbs., collar marked, one grey
