During the contest 150 samples of butter from 45 different creameries were judged and criticised. They were also tested for salt and moisture con tents. Contests of like nature of from four to 12 months in duration have/ "been canducted by other states and aided materially in arousing the interest of 'butiermakers and their patrons, re sulting in a greater uniformity and improved quality in the butter manu factured in the creameries of the but termakers participating in such con tests. This was the first in North Da kota and the results haye been high ly satisfactory. The per cent of creameries oper ating represented in the contest is higher than any other state has shown, a criterion of the enterprise and interest of the buttermakers em ployed in the creameries of our state. The average scores are not as high as was hoped, put considering the ex tremely warm weather that prevailed during the period covered by the con test and the poor pastures from which the cows fed, it is a creditable show ing. The judging of butter is accomplish ed by the senses, developed through experience for the particular work, and was done by Assistant Dairyman Joel G. Winkjer and Prof. G. L. 'Martin without any knowledge or whose but ter they were. scoring. The moisture and salt tests are positivly mechani cal operations, and were made by the dairy department officials Owing to the fact that we 1m'•s lit few creameries where whole milk is dellverd and not wlahing to male two classes as is customary where there are a considerable number of whole milk and hand separator creameries, a handicap of two points per entry was imposed on the butter of the whole milk plants. The prizes were to be awarded to those averaging highest after the han dicap points were deducted and the winners are as follows: Hans Larson, McKenzie, first prize, average score of 92.7. P. H. Olson, Dickinson, second prize, average score of 91.75. J. M. Hein, New Salem, third prize, average score of 91.50. The first prize is a free trip to the National Dairy show to be held in Chi cago in October. The second prize is $25 and the third is $10. The money to defray the expenses of these prizes is to be taken from the dairy appro priation. Better Roada for 8tark County. Dickinson.—For the purpose of carrying on extensive improvement work on its roads during the coming year, an appropriation of $15,000 has been made by Stark county to cover the cost. There has "been a general demand over the county for better roads within the past two or three years, the rapid manner in which the country has been settling up ne cessitating better means of transpor tation to and from market. A num ber of big jobs have already been completed which have materially bet tered the situation. Met After Long Separation. Stanley. Af t«fr twenty-two years Of separation, during which period neither of them knew where the other was, N. B. Good, of Chinook, Mont., and his sister, Mrs. J. C. Corbe'tt of this city, have peen reunited. Twen ty-two years ago Good left the family home in eastern Ontario, coming to the west and losing trace of the other members of the household till he chanced to learn that his sister was here. Four years ago Mr. Good had (heard of the supposed death of his sister, thus their reunion was a doubly happy one. Has Right of Way. Devils Lake.—Practically all of the land required in the city of Devils Lake for right of way purposes by the Soo railroad has been obtained, deeds showing the transfer of thirty toyrn lots at a price of approximately $50,000 having just been recorded. The right of way in the rural districts has a! ready been obtained also and In view of that fact there need be no delay in the construction work when it is taken up again next year. Underwood Underlaid With Coal. Underwood.—That this town is un derlaid with a vein of coal is confirmed by John Schafer, who has juat com pleted a weTfor Otto Eisenmanu The vein was struck at the depth of 110 feet and after some hard drilling a hice vein of water "was struck underneath. Th» coal was fourteen feet thick. 1m Mandan' Building Rapidly.'

Hettinger,--Chas. F. Merry, now In the custody of the Adams county of ficials to serve a sentence of eight months imposed on him In the dis trict court and affirmed by the su preme court, will have a long time to wait for freedom if the plans of the authorities in several other counties in thlB state and in South Dakota are carried out. The present plan of action is to re-arrest Merry the mo ment he concludes his sentence in thh county and the other charges against him will then be shoved, and should he be convicted, it will be a long time before he will be clear of the prison walls. The prisoner, who was convicted here of fraudulent dealings,and who seemingly is entangled in much the same manner in other places, haB had a decidedly checkered career within the past few years. One of the most spectacular stunts that he was. ever charged with pulling off was a few years ago when he was^accused of at tempting to steal an entire tralnload of sheep. The tralnload of sheep in question was being shipped from Montana to St. Paul, and was unloaded in Dick inson for the purpose of grazing for a short time. At this point Merry, is alleged to have reloaded the sheep shipping them out under a bill of lad ing showing tlie property as his own, and it was not until the train 'had passed St. Paul that it was stopped and the rightful owners gained pos session. He had bil'ed the sheep through to Chicago. As a railroad promoter, Merry has been prominent for a number of years and it is claimed that it is this fact that has given him an opportunity of pulling through the several bad deals that are charged up to him at the present time. Merry is still making an attempt to evade the serving of the county jail sentence here, but up to the present time has bean unsuccessful in so do ing. He must serve eight months In jail and pay $700 .in fine and costs Mean while operations on several paper railroads are at a standstill. Rain Spoils Big Day. Energy.—Saturday was destined for a reti letter day for this new town on the 'Missouri, but a heavy shower of rain coming up in the afternoon spoiled much of the proceedings of the day and Senator McCumber was the only one to finish his speech on the development of the northwest. The cornerstone of the linen mill was laid and it is now proposed to transform the lignite coal that is so plentiful around here into power for manufactories here or in dis tant cities whejre it may be sent as electricity or gas. It is a novel de parture that promises well. Mail Delivery at Williston. Williston.—Another step in the ad vancement of Williston toward met ropolitanism will 'be marked at 7 a. m. October 1, next, when free mail deliv ery service will be installed over the business section and a large part of the residence district. Two carriers have been appointed, deposit 'boxes will be put in place and all preliminaries belonging to the de partment's end of the service will be in readiness. There will be two collec tions and two deliveries each day, Sundays excepted. Primary Vote is Canvassed. Bismarck.—The state canvassing board has completed the work of coun ting and verifying the votes cast for state officers on the republican and democratic tickets. There are no changes in the figures from those that have been published in the press of the state, except that W. L. Rich ards, the democratic nominee for lieu tenant-governor will secure a place on the fall ballot, as he received the necesary 30 per cent", having 9,058 votes. North Dakotan Robbed Fargo.—A dispatch from Minneap olis says: John Eck, of Laureate, N. D., was robbed og $120 and badly beat en by thugs Friday evening. He was found at Third street and Sixth avenue south in a dazed condition. At the city hospital he had sufficiently recov ered to tell the police of the assault. He said he was attacked In another part of the city early in the evening and had wandered about in a dazed state until he had dropped. Ik New Leipzig on Railroad Map. New Leipzig.—The steel of the Northern Pacific railroad was laid into New Leipzig during the forenoon of last Wednesday. A great crowd of townspeople, as well as farmers, 'with their families, gathered beside the grade and watched with Interest and wonderment the laying of track by ma chinery. All remarked at the. speed with which the track is laid, and all were happy that the grst of New Leip zig's railroads had really come I-.- 1s Jail 8etence Comes First.

However, work has been resumed again now, and it is expected by the officials that they will be ab:e to move in within the next two months. The hospital will make it possible to separate the tubercular pa. tients from the others and by so doing any danger of the spread of the dis ease will be done away with. i'(t5 f* St.* CONTEST WATER RIGHTS ::rtft LiiV New Mexico, Texas and Kansas Dele gations Opposed to That of Colo rado—Bryan and Others Ad dress Opening Session. 'd Pueblo, Colorado. Second only In importance to the subject of Ir rigation Itself, the question of state versus federal control of paters and natural resources looms large before the eighteenth National Irrigation congress which 1b on here, The fact that the meeting place Is this year In Colorado, which state has several important interstate streams rising within its borders, gives the local people an unusual In terest in this phase of the meeting." The Colorado delegates, both from the San Luis valley and from Den ver, are prepared to attack the gov erment's position in refusing res ervoir sites in the San Luis valley while the water of Rio Grande is flowing out of the state because It is claimed it may be needed for the Eagle dam project. New Mexico and Texas have sent unusually strong delegations to re sist any attempted action on the part of Colorado looking to state con trol of water. The Kansas delega tion will work with New Mexico and Texas on this question, as the use of the Arkansas water, in Colorado is preventing Kansas from filling her Irrigation ditches, and within the last few weeks Kansas Interests have en tered suit, as a sequel of the fa mous KanBas-Colorado case, to se cure some of the Arkansas waters. In connection with the congress is held this year a splendid National Ir rigation exposition where delegates and visitors see the practical results of the irrigation work. This expo sition was opened this morning. Bryan Talks, at First Session.

General Bran the French ambassador to the United States, M. Jusserand, and his wife, and the American ambassador, Robert Houdon's 8tatue of Washington. Bacon, and MrB. Bacon, the bronze replica of Houdon's celebrated statue of Washington in the statehouse at Richmond, Va., presented by the state of Virginia to the Trench republic, was dedicated with appropriate cere monies. The dedication ceremonies took place before a distinguished as semblage of Frenchmen and Ameri cans, including Marquis de Lafayette, members of the French mission that presented to America the statue of Rochambeau, now at Washington, and Nathan B. Scott, once United States senator from West Virginia. They had great doin's there, largely military, with a heap of French nota bles and a good many Americans. The band played the "Star-Spangled Ban ner" as Count Chambrun, brother-in law of Congressman Longworth of Ohio, great-grandson of Lafayette, un veiled the bronze, which was veiled, not with the Stars and Stripes, but with the "Sic Semper Tyrannls" flag of Virginia. When M. Jusserand made his speech he said, among other things: "America is the only country with which France has never fought France is the only country with which American was ever an ally." And he added: "No gift could be more valu able, as no part of America Is dearer than historical Virginia, the birthplace of the United States." THE GEN. M0ULT0N HOUSE Historic Old Building In Hampton, Mass., Which Was Owned by Noted Revolutionary Hero. Bouton.—Of more than passing In terest In historic old Hampton is the Gen. Jonathan Moulton house in the heart of the town which was built in 1769. The home of this sterling, local pub lic functionary of those early days was burned to the ground on March 15, 1769, and a long account of the event, for that period of news-gather ing, appeared In the Boston Chronicle of March 20. General Moulton immediately built, near the site of the destroyed build ing, the house which now stands at the familiar corner near Rand's hill and which since his death in 1787 has been occupied by various first families of the hamlet by the sea. There have been many traditions, ghostly and otherwise, connected with 3 Moulton House Built In 1769. the old Moulton house and a landlord with a reputation for geniality and Imagination combined, has often paraded the old Moulton boot with which General Moulton "caught the gold from the devil's coffers" in the olden time when superstition r&n rife in the neighborhood. General Moulton was a mighty man In the years that called for men. He served with the rank of colonel throughout the Revolutionary war. In return for the present of a fatted ox to Gov.

Well beyond the outposts of civilization in the extreme norths west corner of the state. Here he rode the range for several years, serving a portion of the time as Inspector of brands for the cattlemen of Nebraska and Wyoming. With the building of the northwestern railroad toward the Black Hills there a rush of settlers and the town of Chadron was established. It was a typical frontier city, a large portion of its inhabitants being gamblers, sure thing men and thugs, who terrorized the reputable inhabitants. One day when Dahlman was in town a committee of citizens called upon him and offered him the position of mayor. He laughed at the idea. Dahlman rode back to camp, where he lay awake all night and thought When morning broke he arose and ate breakfast as usual, but he did not go out with the boys. Instead, ho bade them good-by. remarking that he had quit the range. Saddling his cow pony, Dahlman rode into Chadron, where he called upon the city council and told them he was ready to accept the position of mayor. He was immediately elected and that day took charge of public affairs. He organized a police force and soon Chadron was as quiet and orderly a town as there was In the state. Dahlman held the office of mayor of Chadron four years, during the time being elected sheriff of Dawes county., an office which he held six years. In 1898 he removed to Omaha and engaged in the live stock commission busi ness. He is now serving his second term as mayor of Omaha. M'CLUNG FOR THE TREASURY or Albert Sidney Johnston, killed at Shiloh, or John Morgan, the cavalry leader and raider—all of whom were of his family In the past—unless in answer to a question. At Yale McClung—still square, muscular and heavy breasted, waist, and thewed in the legs like a racer—was captain of the football team and famous as a plunger and runner. Socially he was a leader. In all respects he was conspicuous and popular. He went into traffic as a profession—ob taining freight for a railroad—and then he became treasurer of his university, watching $10,500,000 of endowments and receiving $1,250,000 annually in rents, Interest and tuition. Some of the McClungs—Scotch Presbyterians, back In the Highlands, fierce men In love, in war, and as musicians—brought their temperamental eccentricities to America and handed them down to their generations. A notable heir, notorious heir, indeed, to such an inheritance, was Alexander Keith McClung, the Mississippi duelist who should have maintained a grave yard of his own and employed an undertaker in his retinue. THINK CHANLER WAS DUPED BRITISH NURSE IN AMERICA ^f* T^S^-a James C. Dahlman, the cowboy mayor ot Omaha, flushed by bis success In securing the nomination for governor, has widened hlB field of ambition and it is said may become a candidate for United States senator. Dahlman was born In 1856 In the village of Yorktown, a place that was then right in the range country. As a boy he received an educa tion such as the town where he lived afforded, but when hardly out of short pants be straddled a horse and became a cowboy. All over the state, until 1890, he rode the range. In 1890 and when the settlers commenced to encroach upen the big stockmen of Texas, the drive to the north com-t menced. Dahlman was among those who moved, and during that year followed a big bunch of cattle across the country to Nebraska, driving to No longer young himself, Franklin MacVeagh of the United States treasury is the patron of youth. He brought the north wind with him to the flat banks of the yellow Potomac, a Washing ton correspondent asserts. So short coals, fancy vests and stick pins to match shirts and cravats—the visible symbols of a new class—have displaced boots and rusty plug hats In the somber offices of the nation's treasury. Lee McClung,. the new treasurer of the United States, is a bachelor of forty, but a boy when he is compared with his antediluvian forerunners. McClung's blood, Confederate, though whiggisb, points to his politics with a pretty certain guess. However, he makes no flourish of his views, and in his speech, now accented by the east, he de clined to mention John Marshall, the chief justice, feSpjra |f|^ A -A fi t* W" I, Blim Mr. and Mrs. Robert Winthrop Chanler have i«icently been the topic for gossip in two conti nents, it being alleged that Mrs. Chanler tricked her husband into turning over to her his property, leaving him penniless. They were married in. Paris June 18 last. Mr. Chanler, whose portrait is here shown, is connected with the Astors of New York and Is well known in society in that city. He inherited a large fortune and became an artist early in life. His first wife, who was Miss Julia R. Chamberlain, obtained a divorce from him in France in 1908. Mr. Chanler for merly was sheriff of Dutchess county, New York. He is a brother of Stuyvesant Chanler, ex-lieuten ant governor of the Empire state. Mrs. Chanler, better known as Lina Cavalier!, is celebrated for her great beauty as well as for her fine voice. She is the daughter of an Italian workingman, and in early life sold flowers on the street. Then she became a cafe singer, and through the aid of a Russian count studied for the operatic stage. Mme. Cavalieri's debut in Madrid was a failure, but she persevered, and finally won great success in Europe as well as in the United States. Although neither Cavalleri nor the lawyers who drew the contract have divulged Its terms, It is said that it contained a provision that Cavalier*, was to receive $30,000 yearly, art a stipulation was made that this sum was to be paid whether they lived together or were separated or divorced. Ch*"w was anxious to give the singer all he possessed. There is a clause in the contract, which was principally drawn by Cavalieri's French notary, that Is believed to have compromised the trust fund of $250,000 belong ing to Chanler's two young .daughters as well as the alimony allowed by the courts to the first wife. The experience of a competent nurse in the first steps of her humane though arduous mlsBion is a little history of itself. This is exemplified In the career of Miss Elizabeth Murray, who recently came to the United States to study up the meth ods of our great hospitals. Her tour of inspec tion is later to take in the Philippine Islands and China, and she will return to.England.to go oa duty at the military hospital In Devonshire.
