Mr. Knutson \s store is 15 miles south west of Beach. A very much needed grade and culvert is being put in on Blanch street on the north side of town, by F. M. Tullar. All spring the water has been quite deep at that place and it has been very diffi cult crossing. AH, except a part of the plank used, is being done at Mr. Tullar's expeuse and as it is a necessity for the travel of the public, the CHRONICLE suggests that he be paid by the Commer cial club until there is a fund in our township treasury for that, purpose. It shows generosity and public spirit in Mr. Tullar to take it upon himself to build such a large grade. Mandamus proceedings by the Belfield State Bank to compel the treasurer of Billings county to pay over or deposit certain moneys with the bank, was argued before the district court at Mandan Wed nesday afternoon. This was a case where the county commis sioners of Billings county designa ted the Belfield bank, which is lo cated in Stark county, as the deposi tor}' of the sinking fund amount ing to some §6,500. The treas urer, J. S. Sneider, of Billings county refused to turn over the fund on the ground that the commissioners had no right to designate a bank outside of the county. The fact that woof the commissiouers were stockholders in the Belfield bank, was also made part of the answer. It was contended, that iu-as-much as Billings county had two banks, one at Sentiuel Butte and one at Beach, the proceedings were ir regular. The point raised by the county treasurer was sustained and the court declined to give the order prayed for. How She Hooked Him. "Miss Smith," ho aaid, turnlag the conversation, after the manner of tho youthful male, to hlmaelf "Miss Smith, would you take me for a good fellow?" "Oh, Mr. Brown," twittered the lady, who was indeed somewhat older than ho. "I—I might if you'd ask me properly!" QUALITY STORE. ^Quality has ever been our aim. Nothing so surely and so strongly builds up a business as merit The farmer or mechanic who buys our goods is on the "quality" side of the argument. He believes as we do, that it pays to sell products that will produce pleased and permanent customers.

It gives the best of satisfaction and we can sell it a little cheaper than our competitors can sell the Minnesota fllour our customers highly recommend it, and we believe we are selling more flour than all the other merchants in the county. A GREAT COUNTRY Is the Southwestern Part of North Dakota the Farmers' Paradise. The people residing in other section* of North Dakota, and especially those living in Mandan, do not realize how the Man dan country is settling up with sturdy farmers from all the states of the middle weit. The Mandan country is all that territory west of the Missouri river to the Montana line in southwestern North Dakota. This territory embraces Oliver, Mercer, Dunn, McKenzie, Billings, Stark, Bowman, Adams, Hettinger and Morton counties, about one-fifth of the area of North Dakota, and is an empire in itself When every section of this vast domain is occupied by an ambitious farmer, who will cause the present luxurious growth of na tive grass to be replaced by rich fields of waving grain, what will it mean to Mandan, the City of Destiny? What will prevent it from becoming the Omaha of the north west? Mandan will be filled with manu facturing industries, wholesale houses and well stocked retail stores. It will be the natural trading center and distributing point for all this territory, where all the ihnabitants will come at least once a year to lay in a winter's or summer's supply of the necessities of life. Time will amply demonstrate that this is no idle dream. Just now the newly organized counties of Hettinger and Adams are receiving the bulk of the immigration. Within two years every piece of tillable land will be under subjection and made to produce abundant wealth. These counties are well watered with running streams, and the entire area is underlaid with sufficient lignite coal to last the home-makers for several generations. The new county seat of Adams is in an embryonic state, ft will be the railroad town selected by the Milwaukee, the name of which will possibly be changed from Hettinger to some name less confusing. People have squatted on the townsitu and are living in tents. As soon its the road gets in, which will be some time in July, lumber will be hauled in abundance, and a city will spring up like magic. In view of the fact that the Northern Pacific has apparentlv abandoned the idea of building a south branch from Mandan to Mott this summer, the residents of Hettinger comity will make a strong effort to have the Mil waukee build a branch from their main line into Mott. In case they do this, that whole territory will be tributary .to Aber deen instead of Mandan. The towns of New Salem, Simms. Glen Ullin and Hebron, all in Morton county, are growing rapidly, keeping pace with the development of the surrounding coun try. There is a vast amount of territory south and north of Mandan that would settle up rapidly and be made productive if the Northern Pacific would run lines in those directions, and Mandan then would take on the growth that would even sur prise the railroad officials. The building ol these two lines is the key to the whole situation, and everybody in this section of the country is astonished that the railroad does not take advantage of the great op portunity that presents itself to open up a territory that would add so much to their volume of business.—Mandan Pioneer. Wisconsin Blizzard. New Richmond, Wis., April 27---A blizzard has raged all day, and it is still snowing tonight, with four inches of snow on the ground.

BILLINGS COUNTY LANDS Sell at a Good Figure, Fargo Man Hurried Across Ocean to Close a One Hundred Thousand Dollar Land Deal. A late St. Paul dispatch says: When Charles-Wheelock. of Fargo, N. D,, signed his name to a document "which concluded a deal for the purchase of nearly 10,000 acres of land in North Dakota for $ioo, ooo, in St. Paul Saturday, he wrote the last chapter in a remarkable race across the Atlantic ocean and half a continent. And the strange part of it is he did not think he had preformed any unusual feat. "We have to hurry to do business in North Dakota now-a-days," he said. Wheelock was traveling in Europe when he was notified by his brother that nego tiations for the western lands only awaited his signature to be concluded, He pro cured passage for New York at once and was rushed with all speed to St. Paul. Upon arrival he was met at tne union station by his brother and within a few minutes 10,000 acres of North Dakota lands had changed title. The lands were owned by a German syndicate and are located in Hillings county. The lands referred to are supposed to be located four miles north of Medora, iu township 141, range rot. FOUND NOT GUILTY. 1. S. Rispham was one of the principal witnesses for the defence in a ease Vf.irt. the district court at Gleudhe ut v.vok that lasted several days before going to the jury. The Review gives the following I account of the same: Just as the Review goes to press the good news goes over the city that B. J. Parsons of Wibaux was acquitted by the district court of the charge of grand larceny. Mr. Parson's many friends thought some terrible mistake liatl been made when this charge was lirst brought for he hears a I reputation of being one of the best citizens of his section of the county. To show how strong the proof of his in noceace was in the minds of the jury, thev were out less than half an hour when they-4 rendered a verdict in Mr. Parson's favor. Mrs. Parsons, who with her attractive little girl, has been a constant witness of the proceedings of the case, was overjoyed at the result and took no pains to conceal her pleasure. There was also a decided demonstration of approval in the court room, so that Sheriff Larson had to call for order." 1 Tomorrow is Arbor Day. Everyone in this Golden Valley should observe this occasion. From an artistic standpoint, nothing helps to relieve the monotony of prairie life more than beautiful rows or groves of trcts. They give the country a home-like and attractive appearance. A nice grove is as pleasant as an oasis in the desert. It affords shelter and protection in the winter and in the summer furnishes shade and peaceful rest for man ami beast The village can derive as much benefit from the trees as the country. Nothing adds more to the beauty of the streets than rows of beautiful trees and shruberv. They increase the value of the property which they adorn greately in excess of the cost of planting and their care. They in dicate enterprise on the part of the owner and give visitors the impression that the citizens are contented and happy. Every one should plant trees tomorrow. We received a copy this week of the Times and Banner published at Whitehall, Trempealean county, Wisconsin, and in looking it over we find that almost every other local mentions the departure of some citizen for North Dakota. It is certain that there will be a very big immigration to this state this season. People from all the middle states are coming to the North west in great numbers, and reports from every section of North Dakota are that real estate is active at advancing prides.—Kes senden Press. A Resolution for Lawyers. Joseph H. Choate, the famous law yer and diplomat, said at a lawyer's dinner: "We lawyers couldn't do better than resolve, on the new year, to be gentler in our cross-examinations. Rudenes3 In cross-examination never, never pays. This is a truth that I once s:r,v proven -n a damage suit. "In i'.iis suit a cross-examining law yer rlieuted at a witness in overalls: "'You there in the overalls, how much are you paid for telling un truths?' '"Less than you are,' the witness retorted, 'or you'd be in overalls, too.'" GAVE HIMSELF AWAY. Agent—Beg pardon, air but what is the style of your typewriter?
