range Plana to that Effect at
Fargo Mooting.
Fargo executive committee of the
North Dakota Educational association
met in the office, of the county super
intendent to plan for the coming an
nual Bession. Supt. F. E. Smith, Wah
peton Superlntesdent McDonald, Town
er Professor Brannon, university Mr.
Tonberg, Drlscoll Superintendent
Stockwell, Bismarck, and Clyde R.
Travis, Mayvllle, attended.
The committee dlacuesed several im
portant points concerning the meeting.
It was decided to hold the meeting on
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday,
October 19, 20 and 21, unless it is
possible to secure cx-President Roose
velt at some other date and not at this.
It is the hope of the committee to se
cure this speaker and it will work in
conjunction with the state historical
society and the educational association
of adjoining states with this in view.
Besides securing an inspirational
lccturer such as Colonel Roosevelt, it is
planned to secure an educational ex
pert, the very best 'o be had.
The question of securing a larger
enrollment was considered carefully,
and it was decided that the matter of
enrollment in the N. D. El. A., will be
presented to the several sectional edu
cational meetings to be held during this
month. Members of this executive
committee will emphasize the mutual
advantages of the membership and
trust that a large advance enrollment
may be secured. The secretary, Mr.
Travis, was instructed to present thi
matter of membership to the faculties
of the several state and private educa
tional institutions.
Board of University- and School Lands
Will Meet April 28.
Bismarck.—Before the board of uni
versity and school lands the public in
vestigation invited by the board with
regard to illegal or irregular sales of
school land was held. B. D. Collins,
the complainant in the Towner county
case, which gave rise to three libel
suits because of charges made against
members of the board and citizens of
Towner county, was not present being
called away to the funeral of his
brother, but his attorney, T. H. Mc
Enroe, of Fargo, filed a complaint
signed by Collins, charging fraud in
the sale of a parcel of Towner county
lend ten years ago, and asking that
the sale be set aside. After some
cross interrogations the hearing was
adjourned until April 28 to give Mr.
Collins an opportunity to be present
in person. Attorney McEnroe did not
make any charges of fraud against
members of the board, but held that
the sale of land in question was illegal.
John Almen, of Grafton, brought
up the question of the grant of a sec
tion of land to the agricultural col
lege in 1891 and asked that the state
make provision to reimburse the
common school fund for this section
of land. A resolution was passed to
bring the matter to the attention of
the next session of the legislature with
this end in view. No other cases or
charges were presented.
To Study Flax Growing.
Fargo.—A flaxseed growing educa
tional campaign is being prepared by
Minneapolis linseed oil manufacturers
following a conference with Professor
Bolley, of the North Dakota state ex
perlmental station. It has developed
that the flaxseed industry is in great
danger. Minneapolis may be deprived
of linseed altogether and only the
education of flaxseed growers along
scientific lines will save the day. The
Minneapolis linseed and paint men will
raise funds to conserve the flaxseed
of Minnesota, North Dakota and South
Dakota by education. Prof. Bolley was
requested to aid the work of education
and they will install a laboratory for
him. Professor Bolley will work
among the newcomers and be sure
they know how to farm- flaxseed. He
advised the linseed men Monday that
It is not an increase in fU:-.»eed that

Found Dynamite on Track.
Minot.—Ten sticks of dynamite lying
close to one of the rails on the Great
Northern railway right of way just
as the approach to the ateel bridge
over Gasman's Coulee, a few miles
west of Minot, re discovered by Em
ma Olson of this city. It was but a
short time before the Oriental Limited
was due into Minot from the west.
Miss Olsen had returned from school
and was walking along the tracks
when* she discovered a package. Tak
ing it up she opened it .and found that
it contained sticks, but Ignorant of
what It was, she took it to her father,
who recognized the contents and took
the package to C. E. Leverich, super
intendent of the Minot division. The
detectives of the company are investi
gating the affair, it is said. The girl
says the explosive was wrapped in
Sunday newspapers beaVing the date

Rapid Settlement of State Makes
Changes in Counties Advisable.
Fargo.—The rapid growth of the
state 4s responsible for the proposition
to divide some counties. Many, of
them have territory sufficient for two
or more and as the 'population in
creases the demand for better facilities
for transacting county business arises.
In! Williams county with the combi
nation of the forces at Wllliston and
the backing of the voters In the new
proposed county, of "Divide" it begins
to look as though the forthcoming elec
tion on the question of dividing will
result in the proposition being car-!
rled. In perfecting their combination,
the Wiliston people have gone a step
toward defeating the plan launched by.
several of the small towns in the east'
end of the county, notably Ray, which,
proposed the division of the county in
to three parts, making one county inl
the north, one in the east and. leav
ing the remainder i.s Williams coun
In the proposed new county of
Divide, thirty-four townships are in*,
eluded. This leaves the presen* coun
ty of Williams with about fifty town
ships, with Wllllston, on the ex
treme east end, aa the county seat.
However the railroads run in such
a manner as to make it the logical
The situation in Stutsman county,
where division agitation has also been
commenced, is quite interesting. In
the proposed new county of Pincol
twenty-four townships are included,
The strip set apart for the new coun
ty is eighteen miles wide and forty
eight miles long, find Medina, on the
main line of the Northern Pacific,
would be the county seat. This di
vision plan leaves forty townships in
the present county of Stuttsman.
Morton county may neut be in line
for a division campaign, but up to
the present time no steps have been
taken there.
Caught in Wheel of Windmill and is
Thrown to His Death.
Linton.—Reinhold Weisbaar, a Ger
man farmer living fifteen miles north
east of Linton, met with a horrible ac
cident which caused his death. The
accident occurred close to his house,
and his wife was a witness to the ter
rible scene. He had gone out to water
his stock, and for some reason or other
the windmill refused to work, so he
climbed to the top of the tower to
ascertain the cause of the trouble.
He had barely reached the top
stand when a strong wind came up
and started the wheel In motion,
and then wishing to stop it put his
foot on one of the fans, which be
came caught and resulted in whirling
him around two or three times
through the air, then throwing him
a distance of thirty feet to the
ground. He fell on his stomach
striking the edge of the water tank
which disemboweled him and broke his
neck. Dr. Wolverton was immediately
summoned, but it seems nothing could
be done for the unfortunate man. He
lived about thirty-six hours, but
being unconscious most of the time,
suffered but very little. He leaves
a wife and two children to mourn
his loss.
Released from Aaylum.
Devils Lake.—A case came up before
Judge Cowan, here, which will prob
ably be heard of again. On March 7
Thomas Gregg, of Towner county, .was
arrested on a charge of insanity and
promptly committed to the asylum.
When the man was taken to James
town, Superintendent Baldwin was un
able to detect any signs or evidence
of insanity In the patient. Two broth
ers of the alleged Insane man, one
from Montana and the other from
Michigan, hurried
North Dakota to
investigate the case and when they
arrived at Jamestown their brother
was paroled by Superintendent Bald
win and placed in their care. Habeas
corpus proceedings were instituted and
the case came up here before Judge
Cowan. Gregg was examined by two
experts who pronounced him perfectly
sane and he was discharged. It ap
pears that there was great anxiety in
Towner county to dispose of Gregg's
property, valued! at several thousand
dollars, and although he was commit
ted to the asylum the second week in
March, his property was seized and
about to be sold..
800 Wants Road to Elbowoods.
Ryder.—Agent Hoffman, in charge Of
the Fort Berthold Indian reservation,
is in receipt of authoriative Informa
tion from government officials to the
effect that Soo railroad officials have
asked permission from the government
to construct a railroad from Ryder to
Elbowoods. Elbowoods is Situated on
the reservation which explains why
permission is needed from the govern
ment. ElbowoOds is situated about
forty miles southeast of Ryder, on the
Missouri river, and the reservation of
ficials are stationed there, ani it has
always been the principal town on the
reservation. That this line will be
built this summer is a certainty ancl
will mean that Ryder will become an
Important railroad center for this sec
tion of the country, as the line will no
doubt be operated as a branch from
this place.
Justioe Would Not be Bribed.
Grafton.—Nels Hobbs was arrested
at Mlnton, this county, and bound over
on a charge of attempting bribery.
Justice Thorpe charges that Hobbs
tried to bribe him in a case In which
Hobbs was Interested as a litigant

At the time of the wreck, the train

passenger cars followed suit. For tour

Throughout all of Canada, and espe
cially in the Western provinces of
Canada, there is a buoyancy In every
line of business that is fully war
ranted by every condition. The crops
of the past year were what was ex
pected, and the prices for grain of all
kinds, put the farmers in a class by
themselves. Many of them are inde
pendent, and many others have got
well started on the road. The latest
reports are that seeding Is well under
way in almost every district, and the
prospects are that a vastly larger area
than that under crop last year will
be seeded early this spring. In the
Lethbridge district, in Southern Al
berta, steam and gasoline outfits, hun
dreds of them, are breaking up the
prairie at a tremendous pace, but
they work night and day. As soon as
it becomes dark, gangs are changed,
a head light attached, and on, on
through the night until the first
streak of dawn, these giant monsters
with their seven or eight gangs of
breaking plows, keep up the work.
/Then the more modest farmer is put
ting in the longest hours possible with
his teams of horses or oxen. And
what will the Country be like in Au
gust, when these fields have become
yellowed with the literally golden
grain. There will be one vast ex
panse of wheat field. And there will
be a market for it, because it is the
best grain grown, and the demand
will be everywhere. As previously in
timated business throughout Wdbtern
Canada is sound and good. The grain
production of 1909 has been, the great
factor in establishing the reputation
of Western Canada, and it is worth
talking about. It surpassed all previ
ous records, both in regard to quality
and quantity, and such an achieve
ment wa^ by no means easy. The
limit has not been reached, and a
large average increase may be ex
pected during the next ten years.
There will be odd seasons when a
falling-off will occur, and it is the fall
lng-off that causes alarms and panics
in the commercial world. The plains
have done their duty so far in the
out-put of grain and it would be rea
sonable to make occasional allowances
for slowing-up. The faster the rate ot
increase is now, the sharper will be
the check when the production dimin
ishes. But there are some unreason
able people who wonder why the
growth of one year is not continued
during the next, and at an even faster
rate. These same unreasonable peo
ple are the ones who see flaws in the
situation as soon as aa indication is
given that the startling advances have
not been maintained.
A Terrible Risk.
Typhoid had broken out In their
neighborhood and the family resorted
to travel as the best means of precau
tion until the trouble should subside.
They arrived at Quebec by the
morning boat, intending to take it to
Montreal in the evening, but the sight
seers got tired and returned early in
the afternoon to find the top of the
smokestack on a level with the dock,
the tide having dropped 18 feet.

"Yes, my child."

the transient nature
which vanish before proper efforts—gentle efforts—pleasant
efforts—rightly directed. There is comfort in the knowledge that so many
forms of illness are not due to any actual disease, but simply to a consti
pated condition of the system, which the pleasant family laxative, Syrup
of Figs and Elixir of Senna, promptly removes. That is why it is the only
remedy with millions of families, and is everywhere esteemed so highly
by all who value good health. Its beneficial effects are due to the
fact that it is the only remedy which promotes internal cleanliness,
without debilitating the organs on which it acts. It is, therefore, all-im
portant, in order to get its beneficial effects, to purchase and note that
you have the genuine article, which is manufactured by the California
Fig Syrup Co. only.
It is pleasant and refreshing to the taste, and acts gently yet promptly
on the kidneys, liver and bowels, cleanses the system effectually, dispels
colds, headaches and fevers and assists in overcoming habitual constipa
tion permanently, also biliousness and the many ills resulting therefrom.
The great trouble with all other purgatives and aperients is not that they
fail to act when a single dose is taken, but that they act too violently and
invariably tend to produce a habit of body requiring constantly augmented
doses. Children enjoy the pleasant taste and gentle action of Syrup of
Figs and Elixir of Senna, the ladies find it delightful and beneficial
whenever a laxative remedy is needed, and business men pronounce it
invaluable, as it may be taken without interfering with business and does
not gripe nor nauseate. When buying note the name. California Fig
Syrup Co. printed on the front of every package. Price, 50 cents a bottle.
