I take this opportunity of notify ing my friends that I am a candi date for that honorable position, with the understanding, however, that if Judge Morgan is not nomin ated for the Supreme Court, I desire to see him retained as Dis-, trict Judge. In this way I am a candidate before the Republican Judicial Convention for District Judge, and shall heartily appreciate the assistance of my friends to that end. Yours truly, JOHN F. COWAN. Devils Lake', N. D., April 24th, 1900. To the Voters of the Second Judicial District: Having received many kind assurances that my ambition would be regarded with favor, I desire to announce that I am a candidate for the Republican nomination for the office of District Judge, of the 'Second Judicial District, Owing to the character of the office, the recency of my knowledge that Judge Morgan would be a candidate for a state nomination, and the extent of the district, a personal canvass for the nomination is out of the question, I must rely upon this means of making my wishes known generally to the people of the district. .x I therefore urgently request all who favor me for the high honor sought, to use their influence in securing delegates favorable to my jcandidacy.

J. B. CHtTBOH, Churchs Ferry, N. D, You have probably tried the plan of making others miserable, and found little comfort in it. Try making others happier, pos sibly it will suit you better. Too many people have a habit of say ing disagreeable things about others. There is no pleasure in it but there is much unhappiness in the world that you can gain gen uine satisfaction by saying kind things of people, by doing kjnd things. Don't cut and slash, it only makes miserable people more miserable. The fact that others cut and slash you, is no excuse for adopting their mistakeii policy. With a little modesty, and a little kindness, you can do missionary work every day, and accomplish a great deal of good. Anent the rumored outbreak of smallpox at Lakota the Herald says: Regarding certain rumors which were rife last week as to the death of several persons, the Herald wishes to state that there is absolutely no danger Whatever. The prompt measures adopted by those officially in charge has placed matters in such shape that there can be no spread of any part of the county or this vicinity. The following is reprinted from the Herald and Observer of last week and covers the ground thoroughly. Nothing can be said that wjll add any interest or infor mation other -than that given above. Under a statute, a party buying land in this state on crop pay ments can chattel mortgage future crops until the debt is paid and no renewal is- necessary for at. least th^ee years. This is only for the purchase of real estate. The crop payment plan has helped many poor men .to become the owners of land they otherwise could not have secured. Last year the flax crop gave a great many such a lift that their pay ments were reduced far beyond their first expectations.' Mayor McPherson attended ser vices at the M. E. church last Sunday evening at Valley City and being seated in the rear part of the room, found his view of the speaker shut off by several new and handsome Easter' bonnets. William "rubbered" as long as he could stand it and then sent a note to the preacher explaining the situation and asking for relief. Pastor JE$)hcott arose and ex plained matters to the ladies and the offending head gear was moved with celerity. re "Immigration is going to the Northwest instead of the South," says a citizen of St. Paul. "The farmers of Michigan and Indiana, who'have been living on rented farms, are buying land in the Da kotas. Land can be purchased for $7 and $8 an acre. The soil is good, the climate is excellent, and the markets are better than they have been for years. The farmer Y^r* w\. i. can do more on his $7 an aire farm than he could ever hope to do on the land rented from others." Lakota Observer: There were all kinds of rumors afloat the first of the week that a party of "Soo" surveyors were at work north of Mapes running a preliminary survey. There is considerable mystery surrounding their move ments. Some have suggested that they ate out in the interests of a lailroad thatlsgoing to run north west from Fargo. The report was a canard. A new and novel industry is to be started in. this state at Balfour, McHenry county. H. P. Johnson has been experimenting for some time past and has fipally con cluded to start a skunk farm. He t. says the oil is worth $8 per gallon and that there will be a fortune in it. If he carries out his idea he will not be liable to be bothered much by his neighbors. During 1895 and 1896 "Coin" Harvey's book sold by thousands. It was the book most talked about and most read, and thousands of people were misled by its false hoods and fallacies.

As the bulk of the crop has been seeded early, there will be a go9d opportunity for com parison between the early «nd late sown grain in the result. An old timer in the state sug gests to the farmers that they sow their flax early, as an e&rly spring indicates early frost in the fall. There is no reason for delay this year he says. Have all your flax sown in May. The Crary Courier has enlarged to a seven colmmn folio and "believes the east end of Ramsey county is able, and will support a good paper."

Henry Hale publishes in this issue his announcement' as a candidate for state senator, subject to the action of the Republican convention on May 5th. As one of our state representatives in the last session of the legislature, Mr Hale was alfrays on the right side, and through his energy and ability the people of this county have been benefitted by the laws he helped to frame. His efforts in behalf of the school for the deaf ought to be appreciated by the people of Devils Lake. His school law, by which the newly settled townships were allowed to or ganize as school districts, gave the children the benefit of the state apportionment, and enabled schools to be opened for their benefit be fore the proving up of the farms. Mr. Hale's effort in changing the manner of apportioning the two mill and school poll tax, so as to keep all the school money levied in the county, while it saved a good many dollars to this and other counties, also prevented the shipping back and forth of funds to Bismarck (in the aggregate $140,000 annually) thereby saving exchange and keeping the funds in the county where it is raised. He resisted, as a member of the. sub committee, in revising the game laws, whereby the state received a proper portion of the fees to cover its expenses, and the amendment to the game law, introduced by him exempted the boys and girls from having to pay a license to hunt, provided they had the consent of their parents. There are many other laws which has his imprint upon them, all for the benent of the people, such as that one to prevent bankrupt building and oari associations robbing their subscribers, etc., etc. His experi ence in the county auditor's office well fits him for his duties as a member of the state senate, and his experience of one term in the house, if you judge from what he accomplished there, justly entitles him to advancement to the upper house. If any man can aid in cut ting down the rate of state tax levy, Mr. Hale, with his experi ence and energy, is the man. JOHN F. OOWAN. The announcement of John F. •Cowan's candidacy for judge of the second judicial district, subject to Judge Morgan's nomination as judge of the supreme court, is published in another column. It is unnecessary to state that Mr. Cowan has been a resident of the state for eighteen years, and no doubt hi well known to most of the electors of the district. He has filled a number of minor state offices, and has been attorney gen eral for the past six years. This position, owing to our prohibition laws, brings the encumbent more directly under the public eye than any other state office, by reason of the particular duties /he is called upon to perform. It is well known that he never has been found neg ligent when any matter was prop erly presented to him. No better evidence of this is necessary than the recent Mandan cases, where he put duty above all other things. While Mr. Cowan has been an aggressive fighter as a lawyer, the legal profession have always acknowledged that he has the mental ana moral ability to be a just exponent 6f the law: M. H. BBENNAN.

Mr. Brennan has resided in Devils ,Lake since 1886, and though he has served the public on the city school board and council, and also &s city attorney, is not in any sense an office-seeker. He was one of the municipal judges of the city of £.nn Arbor before com ing to Dakota. As a lawyer he ranks among the best, and has a well established reputation for fair dealing, is public-spirited, genial and liberal. Mr. Brennan is a native of Pennsylvania where he received his primary education. He is a graduate of Ann Arbor high school and of Michigan University. J. N. MILLEB. J. N. Miller, of Devils Lake, places his announcement as a candidate for the Republican nom ination for sheriff in this week's Inter-Ocean. Mr. Miller is an old soldier, and during his twelve gears' residence in Ramsey county has made many warm friends who will give his candidacy quite a boost at the coming Republican caucuses. J. B. CHUBOH. Among the announcements ap pearing in this issue will be found that of J. B. Church, of Churchs Ferry, for the Republican nomina tion for sheriff. Mr. Church has many friends in the west end, and he is confident of coming into the convention with considerable strength. Mr. Church has been village constable of his town for several years, and has made a fear less and energetic officer. A MONUMENTAL WOKE. V— The People's Standard History of the United States is the Only Single Work Which Covers the Whole Field. Bancroft brings us down only to tne close of the Revolution and the adoption of the federal constitu tiou. McMaster begins where Bancroft left off, but takes us no further than the years immediately preceding the civil war. Of this momentous struggle no history has yet been written which compares with The Peoples Standard-His tory. Again, Ellis' History is the only one which fully treats and illustrates the Spanish-American war from beginning to end. The last volume is devoted almost en tirely to that short but decisive and important conflict. Ill addition to being up-to-date with regards to contents, it is throughout written in Prof. Ellis' most interesting vein, and proves a recreation, instead of laborious reading further, the publishers have evidently appreciated the thoroughness of the author and the importance of the work, and have spared neither pains or money in the mechanical effects, adding all the latest improvements tin book moking. A FEW OPINIONS. JAMESTOWN, N. D., Mar. 5,1900. —The Peoples Standard History of the United States is a work which ought to be in the home of every gook American family. The illustrations and mechanical effects are far superior to most works placed before the public at such Reasonable prices, I take pleasure in recommending the work to all. (REV. FATHEB) P. MCPHEE. THE REOTOBY, Devils Lake, N. D., April 9,1900. I have much pleasure in recom mending "The Peoples' Standard History of the United States," by Edward S. Ellis, A. M., and published by the Western Book Syndicate, Minneapolis. The record enters from the landing of the Norseman down j. to the present time, and has -evi dently been pre'pared by a compe tent scholar with care, research, and good judgment. The six volumes constituting this elaborate work are the outcome of much painstaking labor. Whether as to letterpress, or illustrations^ or sub ject matter, I am most favorably im pressed. The work cannot fail to instract and. interest the reader, and as it professes to be "The Peoples' History," the general reader, equally with the student of our nation's annals as here pres ented, may consider themselves fortunate in the possession of such a treasure, historical, literary and artistic. C. TUBNEB, Rector. BEAVEB DAM, Wis., April 21st, 1899. The "Standard History'of the United States" is a delight to see in the library, and a greater de light to spend an hour How and then in perusing its contents. The accounts of the wars—the revolu tionary, the rebellion and the late Spanish war—are a treat in them selves. The style and language are such that the history deserves the title, "Peoples' Standard History of the United States." The division of the matter could hardly be better. The detailed manner and accurate ness with which all subjects are treated, make the history a reliable stand-by. It should be in the library of every citizen of the United States who is patriotic enough to seek for information in the past, of his fatheland. Binding, print-paper, and espe cially the illustrations which are profusely scattered throughout the six volumes, make the work a de light, not only on first sight, but a delight io remain' as long as one is able to consult the pages of the People's Standard History of the United States. Yours very truly, (REV. FB.)|FBANCISC. KLESNEB. With the above endorsements, and our own personal knowledge of the work, we have little hesita tion in recommending it to all. The Major's Job. A Washington dispatch in the Minneapolis Journal says. Should a bill now pending be fore congress become a law (it has already passed the senate), Major Edwards, of Fargo, will have a $5,000 job which will last for three or four years. It is a bill provid- 4 ingfor a commission of five to codify and revise the pension laws. The plan is to have Edwards ap pointed one of the commissioners and I understand promises to that effect Jiave already been secured. The Fire Found us, but never touched the ice.
