A. WardweU. G. 6. Thompson. TBOimOK. ••THE KING IS ttBAD LONG LfVE THE KING.' The county conunissionersiheld a one day session on Tuesday of this week and then adjourned sine die Thie means a permanent sine die to three of the tive members oil the bowrd, Messrs Norton, Bigirood and Myrick, retiring ifor good. Imthe retirement of Mr. Myrick the county loses the sertuces of its oldest ofiioial, and one who 'by long experience and imental ability lias. probably done moreito shape the ends of this county from .its very infancy than aqy' other man. iHe has been practically contin uous in official life from about 1874 in this oounty and it isaodisparagement to others to say that he knows more about county 'business and the laws governing such business than any other man in the county and perhaps in the estate With snah knowledge and experience he has been a most valuable member of the county board and he will be graatly missed tin its deliberations. As natural consequence of (being such (prominent and influential member of the board Mr. Myrick has been subject to criticisms, but the answer to these is the great and prosperous. county ef Pembina, whose foundations he helped to lajr and whaee superstructure is so largely his woric. No county has been better managed financially, sp county is better fixed in all that goos to make up a good plaee to live in, than this old Pembina county of which Mr. Myrick was one of the ftast and as well as one. of the later officials. Mr. Bigwood while not: so loog in office as Mr. Myriek, was still' -long [enough as a member to make '.him a familiar and welcome visitor at the county seat and his work as a commis sioner has been well done. Pembina' people have found him fair., ^urtpjous and intelligent, and will, say good-bye with sincere regret. Mr. Norton has served but one term bot has proved himself- as one of the "^/.best connty commissioners that has 'soever been on the board. He is level ^headed and broad-minded and has a yi•' .good stock of common sense that means a lot in the transaetiion of county ^business. Notwithstanding, Mr. Nor ton hails from Cavalier, with all therein implied, Pembina friends of whom he has many, will jbe sorry to miss his ^official vMts. »VJ6"*»KK -33^ H* v-J XXXII ESTABLISHED 1874.

At the Register's office Mr. George Boadhouse who has been sheriff for two terms, will take charge as register and Mr. Fred Gardner will continue as deputy for Mr. Eoadhouse as he has done so efficiently for Mr. Gill, who retires, Mr. Gill has several openings in view but has not as yet decided oto his future. The office of the county Auditor will probably look just the same in the fut«re«s in the past as a result of the decision of the voters that Mr. Felson was about as good material for that business as they could get and there for it was of no use to make a change J.

The offices of the county superintend ent and county judge will according to the official returns of Nov. 8th, remain unchanged as to personal. Mrs. Burley will setain Miss Thorwaldson .as her deputy .and the business of the county be transacted in both time offioae with the same ability and courtesy as before William McMurohie of St. Thomas will beoome the official advisor of the county board at the nes:t session, in place of Mr. Lhxdal, who is filling the vacancy made, by .the death of Mr. Brynjolfssn. The new icounty commissioners aw A. B. Purdy of Joliette, Norman Math ieson of Cqstal and Joseph Jforrison of Drayton.

Mr. Morrison was a member of the eounty board aboiit twelve years or more ago and comes w\£h considerable experience iii'township and county matters to fill his present position. To the outgoing officials the Pionieer Express desires st this time to express its thanks for many kindly courtesies and hopes the past pleasant official relations may continue as personal friendships in the fu ture... To the new ones we bid a cordial welcome, not only frooi the Pioneer Express, but from the citizens of Pembina generally.

We had lsqg known that we had .been for yean sending.a^ a free gift 'dirt" to the elevators there, and buying it back as "feed" and v. W00m mmmi mm® Hfrihlfl THE TALE OP DOG. For some strictly personal reasons this writer is somewhat remineseent on this 23rd of December, 1910. The reminescences may be of interest, though the reasons are personal. Seventy-five years ago a puppy was growing down by the Falls of St An thony. Its front quarters were at the head of navigation while its hind quarters lay at the brink of the Falls. Its tail then as now, stretched far into the northwest, and finally ended in a trail of Bed river carts. With the later advent of steamboats and railways the puppy grew into a bigger and bigger dog—and the rail ways became apart of the tail and were wagged by the dog, for the dog and to the dog. Once a lot of farmer fellows who didn't know anything about railroads (as a part of the dog'scaudal appendage) attempted to build a road which would run across the country to Duluth and not be a part of the aforesaid dog-tail, but they found that according to the war. or some other department, of the general government that it was not according to the constitution to run railroads over an Indian reservation, and they stopped. It wasn't good for the constitution of the dog. But inside of two years a railway was run across that same reservation-i-but this railway had its headquarters at the dog's front quarters—which made it constitutional for the dog. In fact, by this wagging of the tail in a proper manner, even the "Great City of the Unsalted Seas" is as yet only like a burr attached to the hair, on the tail. Not a grata commission merchant of Duluth has his headquarters on the tail, but at the hindquarters of the dpg. Time was when the political dogmas of the Dakotas were 4^is A lew .years.ago, some North Dakota bankers went to Duluth and Minneapo lis to -see iiow the wheat and other gnun vwse treated: by .the elevators. We! havri't ifimeto. tell the:wluriestor^, but PSS nothing new, just an old Btoiy, sad! jaat fhatini^bt be expected of the if en whobuy our wheat at their own ^g.a^iSt.i|i|heir own prices and' who ••sjeU thesair^e'to others witli the sane ofgxtrbunities. No wonder was expses: sed to ifind that a sort of mireple o6a^SKdi|hthe elevators by which the tp*ying the flight both ways. Then oUr Senator McCumber at tempted toget the wheat graded by the general government, -but the dog growled thainobody could do it as well as hecould. Wisconsin ithought Superior might be able &o#rade.and store wheat as well as the dqg but that has never amounted to much, because the dog's tail don't Wag that way so ,rapidly as in isome other directions. The only iealitesult that we know of from outside agitation of JJus catidal appendage iiw been that a North 'Dakota man has been placed on some sort of a state board,: but he seems as quiet and stUl-ras some- others are^ who are laid out oq a board. In a tariff fight about a year ,ar more ago many people made lots of fun of our Senator McCumber who got as increase in the tariff of wheat/ Among were the dqg and his friends, For many years the dog has banted more wheat. Themis only one place where he can get that kind of wheat— up in the Canadian nbrthwest. The tariff prevented his adding that country to his tail. Another plan of the fog is to get the government to allow him to just grind the Canadian wheats and then send it abroad as flour, without paying duty. This would give plenty' of employment and be handy to have when wheat prices got high vp in North Dakota when the farmers try" to bold their wheat. '. .Vcgi Just last week, bis barkersV'the Twin ^,itf a tale that was told" at the Merchant* hotel at the far end ot tfce dog, and it was .expected that the legislature would adjourn once or twice «aoh,#easion to^ee that the band wag-on mas like a real Twin City dog cart. As noted, efforts bawe been made at tiates towag the tati in other directions, bat .these &ave been mostly failures. Tbe dog somehow always wants to wag hie own'talk '4- City papers, gave notice, that the banks ^®thg*te: M_«ivea ou, W to tlwir North tlut Dakota correspondent! that they wars §s, petitioner a^d aditiiusthitor and his not to extend loans made to [attorney Appsarejralso Gertruda Vnll. who are bidding their wheat By wdT •eemB institutionfi of this section are Ka^ 'allhs Conrt. r.\, 1 PEMBINA, yr. Dii FRIDAY, PECEMBEB SO, 1W^ NUMBER 37 that depends on the point.of view. But we wonder it some time if the tail won't be big enough to wag the dog, whether the farmers will not own the elevators themselves, whether it will not be possible for an eastern buyer to purchase wheat in North Dakota and hfive it shipped as he buys it to his eastern mills? Whether when the farmers hold their wheat in bulk in elevators whether they might not be able to borrow money thereon in the eastern markets without asking the dog if they may, and paying him a percent age for his consent? Whether in fact the time will ever come when we will have an open market of the world for what we buy and what we sell without paying toll both vays and being the tail to that dog whose front quarters are at the head of navigation on the Mississif and whose hind quarters are washed by the Falls of St. Anthony. TEMPUS FUGIT. Yesterday, today and tomorrow are always new year days, and yesterday, today and tomorrow are always the last days of an old year. The earth swings in a circle which has no end. We are conscious only of only one part of time, •tempus fugit," that it flies. We can measure its passage, by days, weeks, Sppnths and years, but of its beginning or ending we know nothing. Indeed we only know of the history of but an Infinitesimal part of the past, and have only a guess for the future. The individual unconsciously measures time by his own brief years, which are really BO short apart of time that the fraction is far too small for human comprehen sion. And time itself is,,equally an infinitely small part of eternity. Per haps, indeed, the only difference between time and eternity is that eternity can not be measured. It will be eternity— always, without past, present or,, future. Without a yesterday, today or ^o^rrow —without a New Yefcr Day. The'Clironicle calls attention to the fadt that in the present sujit .in the •ooufty Beat cases, that the county must ipajr the bills of in county commis sioners who gave the opportunity for •calling the Steatiosta question by 'their arktttaary methods and who acted on thet advice of ths Attorney—and blames Pembina foif causing the oosts. We presume when that fine new court house is built at dvalier—if it is ever •built there—and ttte tax payers (prum^le at the consequent Ihigh taxes, that the Editor Fairchild will again come for ward and explain that it is all ths fMlt of'those pesky PetfhinS fellows. esooooeoooooiseooooooosasaa JIN COUNTY COURT.
