The girl works the scheme—not mamma. She tells the young man to write down nine ciphers in a line—0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0—then to commence on the first on the left and from the right of th,e cipher draw a straight line up on the right of the fourth make a straight line up on the right side of the fifth a line down Vrn the right cf the seventh a line up on the right of the eight one mak*k down then to read what he has written. It knocks the spots off the alarm clock plan—in cases, of course, where the young lady is really bored. Parin For Sale* The F. D.

Sec. 2-145-49. The Battle Ship Oregon has made more kinds of records for the U. S. navy in its 18,000 miles trip, than was ever dreamed ot. Judging from the demand for it, that little 80 page, vest pocket size, army and navv book just published by the Northern Pacific is making a great record too. The request for it reached the Northern Pacific Pas senger department at St. Paul in large numbers from every part of the United States. This is a tribute to wide advertising as well as to the enterprise of the company and the value of the book. Mr. Chas. S. Fee, the general passenger agent at St. Paul, Minn., will send the book upon receipt of ten centsv Buoklen's Arnica Salye.

Alfred Eiickson is putting up a substantial addition to his house. General Manager Stewart of the Monarch Elevator Co., stepped off from the limited last week and stayed long enough to stake out a location for the new elevator. Honstain Bros., have the contract for building same. They contracted to have-it in running order September 15th but will hardly make it.

Traveling Agent Young, stepped off tgfit Friday long enough to set the Cargill elevator in motion. Gunderson's new Advance outfit rolls out wheat at the rate of bushels a minute. ^Freight receipts for the month of September were in the neighborhood ot A large increase over some months last year. "Hope springs-eternal in the hum all brekst.'V^Nowhere is this better exemplified than by the agriculturist. No matter how high his products go his inclination and interest make him for higher prices. fD? Bessie Fiero was taken with con vulsions Saturday night. Dr. Kerr was hastily summoned, and at this writing she is much better. Lumber for grain bins, granaries and repairiug is going out in quantities these days. Mr. Ayra, a very smooth talker from Nebraska, sold both Groven and Arestad & Jackson a "money weight" scale. John Byingtcn was going to place his order for one to weigh his money this fall, but changed his mind when he learnec. that wheat was only 50 and liable to go lower. 339339-39- cents a bushel We have been figuring that if we had taken all the cigars offered us by politicians in the past 14 years, and sold the same, and invested the pro ceeds at 8 per cent, compound inter est, in time we would have had $3,- This is losing too much ,for a poor man, so for the future we have decided that no can didate need approach us without first presenting the equivalent, in fruit, of a 10 cent cigar. If belonging to our party and wishing to ask for our vote, the equivalent of 2 cigars, belonging to opposite party and ap proaching for same purpose, then a box of oranges. Having been prop erly squelched, jrithered and blown into oblivion by the hot blast in las week's Sentinel, we probably ought to know enough to stay there. But as Mr. Tufte very kindly asks us to define our position, we will take the liberty to do so. As a general thing we think most people known where we stand. We are not in the habit of straddling the fence tor political reasons. And, knowning that Mr. T. was dependent on the vote of a good many who do not believe in prohi- bition, and equalljr dependent on the employed as a U. S., detective. votes of those who do, we perhaps had an unholy desire to see how well he could straddle the question. Personally we do not think that the present prohibitory law is the most effectual method ojf dealing with the liquor question, tf any man desires to appear in public in a state of in ebriety, we do not: consider it any of our business, unless so situated as to convince him of thje folly of his ways. Any man who indulges in a little wine for his stomach's sake, and not to the detriment of ethers, acts strictly within his own rights and in fringes none of ininje. Further—We think a man can be judged by the company he keeps :a state and coun ty by its representatives. We do not think that the voters have any right to put ai man in a position of public trust, who is immoral or intemperate in his habits, or who does not believe in the laws he will be called on to enforce. Not being personally ac quainted with Mr. Tufte or his habits and receiving our information from a reputable man, we thinic we were strictly within the righto of any voter in asking a candidates declarehim self, especially it said voter does not atend to vote a straight ticket (Mr. T. will probably find it hard to Relieve that we do hot always vote a straight county ticket, and may not this year). Have we defined our position? Now as Mr. T. has kindly pointed out the weak spots in our article, perhaps he will allow us the same privilege. Mr. T.siarts out profes .sing no desire to slur us, then turns squarely around sand gives the lie direct. The fact of the matter is that we did not know until now that the report was circulated at the coun ty convention, and that our inform ation came from ja source that no decent man would class as "coffee pot gossip." He easts a sop to the convention that nominated him by praising their intelligence in so do ing We are free to say that the independent convention nominated the best and strongest ticket they ever did. That, with possibly two exceptions, every republican in the county could vote the ticket with honor to himself, were it not for the fact that, with one exception he hac candidates equally as good or better. Conventions, liKe cabinet maKers, sometimes find themselves with but one stocK of timber to use, and they are compelled by circumstances to use it, whether crooKed or not. We are not quite prepared to admit it but Mr. T. says it would taKe an enormous fobl to maKe a promise of this Kind. It may be so, yet no where in his column and a half does Mr. T. deny it, nor does he anywhere say that he believes in the law and will use his best efforts to enforce it, At the present, time the law is strictly enforced in some counties, partially in others, and in some a wide open policy prevails. Perhaps we are in err«r in taxing it tor granted that each and every states attorney tooK an path to perform his duties under Sec. 7604. There are none so, blind as those that won't see, nor so deaf as those that won't hear. Sam Jones once described a pblitical speaKer as one who shut his eyes, threw bacK his head, opened his mouth and trusted the consequences to God. There are others.^ X. Death of Hiram Williams. P. D. Williams informs the Courier of the death of his father which occured at Jackson, Mich., August 5th. The deceased will be remembered as one of the pio neers of Griggs county The Jackson paper has the following to say: "Mr. Hiram Williams was born November 20, 1816, in Niagara county, New York. He had the misfortune to lose his mother while still an infant. At five years of age, he remov ed with his fattier and step-moth er to Jackson, Mich., which at that time consisted of but three or four houses. In 1845, he was married to Elizabeth Chappelin, to whom nine children were born, of whom six are still living. During the civil war, he was In 1829 he removed to Bunkerhill and settled upon a farm. In 1882 he removed to North Dakota, where he took up a claim but his main business was a land agent, selling and surveying land. His wife died in Dakota. Two years ago last February he came to Michigan, and spent the remain der of his life with his daughtei*, Mrs. W. G. Green. During the latter part of his life he was a great sufferer, but bore it with patience. He was not a church member, but read his Bible, saying, "It is true, ev ery word of it, and I am ready to go." He quietly breathed his last Friday, August 5. The funeral services were held from the house Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev. F. E. wright officiating, and the remains laid to rest in Oak Lawn cemetery. .* --iViv "J 55^* iv. a.. -i:.,/? .' j-»- j./ stitatioD of the state North Dakota. lite Fifth legislative assembly the state of North Dakota proposed the following amendment to the consti tution of the state by a CONCURRENT RESOLUTION.

The Courier does not desire to cast any reflections on the popu list ticket, on tho contrary we candidly admit that nothing can. be said against anyone on the ticket, at the same time believ ing that the republican ticket is equally as good and being a re publican, we feel as i£ that ticket should have our hearty support —and it will get that from top to bottom. 'We reserve the right to question any candidate on the opposition ticket as to their stand on matters of public interest and if they refuse to put themselves on record and resort to person alities we shall be compelled to meet that with the best argu ments obtainable. The populists have the same right to question any of our candidates. We be lieve that the republican state and county ticket is as good as any ticket in the field, and we urge all republicans to vote it, and we are not going to wait un til "the last issue before elec tion" to ask them to do that either.
