Lord Guilford tells a story of a young lady's resources at a bazaar Business was in full swing when a' young man strolled around the vari ous stalls, with no intention of pur chasing anything. As he passed a large, beautifully decorated stall the young lady sellers detained him. "Won't you buy a cigarette holder, sir?" she asked. "No, thank you, I don't smoke," was the curt reply. "Or a pen wiper worked with my own hands?" "I don't write." "Then do have this nice box of chocolates." "I don't eat sweets." The young lady's patience was exhausted. "Sir," she said grimly, "will you buy this box of soap?" The young man paid up. He Knew the Worm. A country girl was horne from col lege for the Christmas holidays and the old folks were having a reception in her honor. During the event she brodghi out some of her new gowns to show to the guests.

A club committee that to Charged with obtaining options on small tracts of lands, from the farm ers under the projects, has been ap pointed, and this committee is already at work with Paul Leonhardy in charge as chairm&n. "The object of this movement," says Chairman Leonhardy in a statement issued to the land owners interested, "is to assist the farmers under the project in the sale of their lands, es pecially in Bmall tracts, with the idea of securing more settlers, as it would seem from the statements of the farmers that their larger holdings can not be as profitably farmed as smaller tracts. Another of the principal ideas in making this effort is that if the land can be cut up into smaller tracts, it wil] be much easier to secure acreage for beet culture in the event of getting a beet sugar factory established in WiUiston. LAND ELOPER AT LAST. McHenry County Officials Waited Long but Finally Secured Man. Towner.—Harry Watson was arrest ed at Minot by Deputy Sheriff Morri son and was brought to Towner where he is now confined in the.county jail. The charge against Watson is adultry and wife desertion, which charge was brought by his wife, Mrs. Leota Wat son. Watson disappeared from Granville during the early part of October sell ing all his property and leaving his wue without means of support. It is alleged he was accompanied by his wife's sister, and the pair were traced from Minneapolis to Winnipeg and through Calgary, from which point Miss Heath returned home. Watson was later located at Coronation, Can., and through the officials there Sheriff Sampson was kept informed as to his whereabouts. It was impossible to extradite him under the above charge, and he would have to be caught in the states. Early last week Sheriff Sampson re ceived word that Watson had left Coronation and was on his way to British Columbia, but was going by wsy of Spokane. Consequently he was ai rested at Minot. The preliminary hearing will be had Jan. 8. C. W. Hookway and Christianson & Weber have been employed to defend Watson. FARMERS TO MEET Plans for Securing State Farm Be Considered. Will Minot—Through the activities of the Minot Commercial club which has made plans for a general gathering of farmers to be held during the latter part of the present month, Minot hopeB to be able to secure one of the farms which will be established by the North Dakota Better Fkrming as sociation. The committee which has been placed in charge of the farmers' gath ering haB already decided to invite Director Thomas Cooper to the city to make an address, and it is expected that he will discuss the farm proposi tion and point but the methodB Which must be adopted to fulfill the require ments. The Minot Commercial club has al ready been of material assistance to the farmers in the territory, and not the least interesting., feature of its work waB that of bringing into Ward county a large consignment of pure bred cattle, which have since been sold to farmers who are going into dairying on a more or less extensive scale. THE MERIDIAN ROAD. Would Mean Splendid Automobile Run From Winnipeg to Gulf.

This road has a direct route through the United States, going through the Nprih bako^a side of the Red river vfcltey aria it the highway is preserved and made permanent it will make a great international automobile run. Some great headway has been made in the past six months and over $100, 000 has been spent towards this under taking. Though lit present there is no money in sight for the work in Nqrtti Dakota it to believed] that the next five yelrs will see'', the entire work ac^ complished.

The smaller farm movement is one that has been launched in other sec-' tions of the country where federal ir rigation projects are maintained aB the operation of large farms, under those projects, has been shown to be less profitable than the small farm op-, erated under the intensified farming plan. Farmers of Williams county look upon the movement favorably. COMMON LAW KNOTS INVALID. North Dakota Supreme Court Hands Down Decision in Several Cases. Fargo.—The s&preme court of North Dakota holds that common law mar riages are not valid in North Dakota. The decision was rendered in the cast} of Matliias Schumaker vs. The Great Northern and others. The court said in part: The syllabus of the case is in part as follows: Prior to enactment of chapter 91, laws of 1890, the common law mar riage was expressly recognized as valid in this state, but by the enact ment of said chapter, which is still in force as sections 4032 and 4042, R. C. 1905, which expressly repealed the old statute in toto it was unquestionably the legislative intent to abrogate such common law marriage in this state, and such intent must accordingly be given effect. The case is reversed. 'FOURTEEN YEARS. Apley Will Go Over the Road for Long Period. Jamestown.—Judge Coffey imposed the sentence of imprisonment at hard labor in the state penitentiary for four teen years on E. F. Apley of Napoleon. Judge Lauder of Wahpeton, counsel for the defendant, gave notice of an appeal to the supreme court for pur poses of a new trial, and moved that the court allow the expense bf a tran script of the testimony to be taken, at the cost of Logan county, the de fendant being an indigent person not able to bear such expense attendant on the appeal. Under the statute, by good conduct, Apley can "make time" in the serving of the fourteen year sentence, which would reduce the time in case he served his full sentence, to a little oner ten years. WILL ORGANIZE. Renville County Development to be League Slogan. Mohall.—At a meeting which will be held' in this city of county publicity workers, the organization of the Ren ville County Development league will be perfected, the object of this league being to promote immigration to Ren ville county. Already a series of local meetings Stove been held throughout the county, and at each of these the question has received favorable con sideration, and from all the cities rep resentatives will attend the general gathering. Under the present plan of action that has been laid down, an immigra tion fund will be created by the coun ty commissioners, who will make a levy for that purpose, and there also will be a general fund subscribed by the commercial clubs of the county.

PITIFUL SIGHT WITH ECZEMA "A few days after birth we noticed an inflamed spot on our baby's hip which soon began spreading until baby was completely covered even in his eyes, ears and scalp. For eight weeks he was bandaged from head to foot. He could not have a stitch of clothing on. Our regular physician pronounced it chronic eczema. He is a very able physician and ranks with the best in this locality, nevertheless, the disease began spreading until baby was completely covered. He was losing flesh so rapidly that we be came alarmed and decided to try Cuti cura Soap and Ointment. "Not until I commenced using Cuti cura Soap and Ointment could we tell what he looked like, as we dared not wash him, and I had been putting one application after another on him. On removing ,the scale from his head the hair came off, and left him entirely bald, but since we have been using Cuticura S°ap and Ointment he has as much hair as ever. Four weeks after we began to use the Cuticura Soap and Ointment he trap entirely cured. I don't believe anyone could have eczema worse than our-baby. "Before we used the Cuticura Rem edies we could hardly look at him, he was such a pitiful sight. He would fuss until I would treat him, they semed to relieve him so much. Cuti cura Soap and Ointment stand by themselves and the result they quick ly and surely bring is their own rec ommendation." (Signed) Mrs. T. B. Rosser, Mill Hall, Pa., Feb. 20, 1911.
