H, C. CARR.,
Marshal Jackson, of Neche, on Tues
day brought over the two burglars who
went through LaMoure & Co.'s store.
They are pretty tough-looking charact

him and a broken finger for the marshal.
They gave the names of John Hanson
and Frajicis Jorgenson and appear to be
Danes. They will likely plead guilty.

As an example of what the Red River
Valley soil will .do for the right kind of
farmer, we may "mention the 'success of
Richard DeMarse, of Carlisle. Mr. De
Marse landed at Winnipeg a little over
twenty years ago, without money enough
to buy his next meal. This year his crop
in round numbers in bushels is: Flax
1900, wheat 12,700, oats 2,800, being over
$10,000 in value. Mr. DeMarse also has'
a bunch of cattle and lately has been in
tereste 1 in the Bathgate Roller Mills,and
a hardware business at Bathgate, but he
has made his success as a producer, and
not as a trader, and largely by his own
personal hard work on the farm.
We present our readers with the official
list of candidates, published by law by
County Auditor. For the convenience of
the voters we have made it to practically
conform with the offical ballot. The
names are in similar type and the order
is the same. The official ballot will be
wider and longer, a§ we havp omitted
the blank space required by law under
each name and have set the columns
closer together, to save space. It will
pay eyen the. most intelligent voter to
look this list over at his leisure before
election day. it will also be understood
that this list contains the names of all
candidatesln the county (93 in all) but
the official ballots will have only the
names of the candidates to be voted for
in each particular precinct. Thus, F. C.
Myrick's name for commissioner will ap
pear only on the ballots prepared for
Pembina, joiiette and Carlisle. These
changes of names for the two legislative
districts and the five commissioner dis
tricts require seven different sets of bal
lots at this election.

"rooters," that could root some, too.
The game was scheduled for 2 o'clock
but owing to a small shower, it did not
begin till fifteen minutes later.

did not prove very disastrous. However,
Miss' Mussel, for the visitors scored the
first point on a free throw.
Ella Wallace scored first for the locals
on a pretty field basket, and- Lucile
Switzer followed closely with another,
just as the timekeeper's whistle blew.
End of first half—Pembina 4 Drayton 1.
During the second half, the visitors
had the wind in their favor, and after a
few minutes play Miss Mussel disting
uished herself by making one of the
most remarkable baskets imaginable,
the throw being backward over her head
from almost the longest distance that a
forward possibly could.
Our girls realized now that something
be done and done quickly. Lucile Swit
zer took advantage of a free throw and
added another point, and then to cinlch it
threw another field basket. Excellent
work on the part of our guards kept the
Draytonites from scoring again. Time
called. Final score—Pembina 7 Dray
