"Speed" Wallace Writes Letter From
A very interesting letter has been
received from Irving Wallace, son of
Mrs. H. A. Kluver of Burlington and
grandson of Mr. and Mrs. James
Johnson of Minot, who is attending
college at Los Angeles. He is the
"Speed" Wallace, famous champion
base runner, mention of whom was
made in last week's Independent:
Los Angeles, Cal.,
Mr. James R. Falconer,
Minot, N. D.
Now that we have ushered in a new
year 1, will endeavor to write you my
It is hard to find an interesting
topic to write upon, as no doubt most
all California letters contain more or
less about the weather conditions, but
for myself they have become quite a
natural condition by now as this makes
my third winter here, I assure you
though I always look forward to my
trips up north each spring, as I am
much afraid, living under the same
climatic conditions would not satisfy
me. And believe me one sure can get
the change in North Dakota.
I have one more year of school left
and I imagine it will be ten when I
will finish. Even though I am enjoy
gin college life with all of its athletic
environments' I sure recall th'e grade
days when you sat ahead the room
and made the rules (we didn't keep.)
There are many Dakota people out
here and it will not be long before the
N. Dakota state reunion takes place
and then I will inform you the cor
The annual Rose Carnival which is
held at Pasadena each new years was
a great success. One can not de
scribe the wonderful sight, but must
witness it to realize the full beauty.
The Portland float was given .first
honors but many were equal. Also
the East-West foot-ball game was a
great event, being a scoreless tie.
Although it is hard to do, but we must
admit the East gave superior playing,
although scoreless for each side. The
field was in very bad shape from
The most interesting thing I can re
late in this letter is the opening of
the Southside (Commercial and Sav
ings) Bank on 85 and Vermont St,
which was last Thursday.
One might call it a Minot organ
ization as here are the officers:
Chas. Moore, President L. M. Due,
Vice President Ed. Christensen, Cash
ier, and R. A. Kane, Asst. Cashier.
The bank had a typical California
opening, and if business follows in
accordance with the opening day, the
Southside bank will soon send a chain
clear up the coast.
The bank was decorated with flow
ers of all sorts and a flower girl stood
at the door presenting each visitor
with an American Beauty.
Mr. Moore was on hand with that
friendly hand shake and Mr. Christen
sen had his million dollar smile and
they both seemed to be attached to
their new enterprise as comfortably as
though they were handing out Fords
by- the wholesale lot.
Mr. Kane, formerly with the Second
National Bank, has been employed in
the Hellman Bank here until his duties
with the Southside Banlc began.
To give the opening day its justice,
a dinner and dance party was given to
about three hundred invited guests,
when a wonderful time took place to
the success of the new financial enter

seed from one section to another, pew
weeds are often introduced. Guard
against seed containing sow thistle,
French weed, Cahada thistle and
quack grass. Clean all seed, dis
carding all shriveled kernels. If you
haven't a good fanning mill, haul the
grain to a neighbor who has one, or
arrange to rent cr buy one.
To make head cheese, clean the
hog heads thoroughly, remove eyes,
teeth, inner portion of ears, and hairs,
and cook until the meat slips from the
bones. Separate the meat and pick
it to pieces. Remove all the pieces of
bone. Do not chop the meat. Cook
also the pieces of skin from the lard
stock, and the cleaned feet and tails.
They will mix all right with the lean
meat. Season to taste. Spread
this mixture in a pan and mix. in
enough liquid to make it set up. The
head cheese may be stuffed into the
cleaned hog stomachs.
To clean hog stomach, open it up
at the lower end and turn wrong side
out, scald it five to ten minutes and
remove the inner lining. Then stuff
the head cheese into the cleaned
stomach, sew up the slit. Make a
few narrow knife perforations in the
wall of the stomach, and then place
this in the liquor and cook it for an
hour or two. This stomach skin con
tracts and presses out the excess fat
from the meat and makes it very com
pact and firm.
Things You Should Know'
Potatoes with a sweet taste at'this
time of the year when brought from
the root cellar and cooked, have been
kept at too low a temperature. Po
tatoes stored at near the freezing
point will develope this taste, which
is objectionable to some people. If
the potatoes are brought into a warm
room for several days before being
used they will lose* this sweet taste.
For seed purposes, potatoes stored
under such conditions are as good as
any the development of the sweet
taste is not objectionable from the
Sweep out impure air from a sick
room at' least twice daily by opening
the windows, using a screen to protect
the patient from drafts, says Exten

for this purpose, and other sick room
helps are contained in the circular,

Arrange for seed now, if you have
not seed you think it is advisable to
plant. Procure seed if possible in
your own community, if it is of good
quality, the variety you want, and

that has proven the best in your
neighborhood, and the one for which
there is a good mn^t. Be sure the
germination is high and that it con

Horses Killed By Spoiled Ensilage
Spoiled ensilage killed nine draft
horses on the farm of Ole Brink, near
Horace, Cass County, according to
Dr. J. W. Dunham, veterinarian.
Answering a call to the Brink farm,
Dr. Dunham reported today that he
found fi^e of the animals deAti and
that four" more died in the afternoon
their deaths wiping out all the work
horses on the farm with the exception
of three aged animals.
Dr. Dunham said they were the first
cases of the kind that, he had been
called to deal with, and after making
an investigation learned that ensilage
which was exposed to the air during'
the recent warm spell and which had
become mouldy, was the cause. He
said mouldy ensilage will work as fast
as ptomaine poisoning.
"Spoiled ensilage does not affect
cattle as much as it does horses and
sheep," said Dr. Dunham, "sheep be
ing more susceptible than horses.
Cattle on the Brink farm- had eaten
the same spoiled ensilage, a few were
sick, but recovered. Spoiled ensilage
will kill a horse or a sheep within six
or eight hours."
Dr. Dunham stated that farmers
should be careful and not allow their
ensilage to become exposed during
mild weather and become mouldy.
