The store is selling trade books,

deal of vote-getting from now on will
be through the purchasing of these
books. A $5.00 book when purchased
entitles the purchaser to 25,000 votes

the several candidates or a new one

Two Matches Played and Each Side
Win—Married Men's Team Lead on
Averages and Total Points.
The bowling tournament which was
ataHed last Saturday night between the
married and single men for the purpose
•f selecting a team to play outside
tea&ns has proved to be quite an inter
esting affair and a very close match.
th* married men won the first match
.Saturday night, by 194 points, with a
teMn average of 153. The single boys
made a team average of 140, but their
mdn, Gordon, showed up strong, mak
ing the highest individual score, 222,
which is also the high score of the
tournament so far. His average, how
ever. was only 159, but this was the
M|l. average for his team. On the
married men's side A. R. Hoffman
the highest individual score and
the highest average, 202 and 165, re
spectively. Dr. Rice surprised his team
mates by coming in second with an
average of 162. which is a good show
ing considering that this was his first
bowling for two years.
Monday night more interest was
Aown and a good crowd turned out
to see the second match. The single
men seemed to lose their stage fright,
which handicapped them the first eve-
and started out much better, Gor
don. scoring 203 in the first game and
the singles winning the first two games,
but falling down bad in the last. Gor
don again made the high average, notj
only of his team but of both teams,'
173, and he was also the only man to:
lowl a 200 score, Jacobson coming,
-next with 109. It was the married,
men's off night and they were defeated
fey 10 pins and by a team average of
one point, the scftre being 2242 to
2252 and the average being 149 to
150. The married men, however,
liave the best of the six games, their
total score being 4545 against 4361

out or not. The "contestants should not
overlook this feature, as it gives them
a great deal more votes than ordinary
purchases. As an illustration, $20
spent for trade books would give the
purchaser 100,000 votes and the $20

within a year.'

As the track of the N. P. extended
west more troops were required for
guard duty along the line when the
companies of Captains Beach and
Choisy died in December of this year.
1 was on an Indian expedition to the
Indian Territory and on our return
when about forty miles from Griffin,
Texas, some dispatches were ordered
sent to Griffin. It was late in the aft
ernoon when H'e started. Choisy was
on the expedition and as one of his
children had died duirng his absence
he was anxious to go into the post
where his wife was. He was furnish
ed a horse and given a small number
of soldiers and some Indian scouts for
guides. 1 was a member of the pary.
The orders were to try and make Old
Camp Cooper before dark and then
make Griffin early next morning. The
Indians' families lived on a rest
near Griffin and th^y had no notion of
remaining at Coop«*r over night. Soon
after we started the Indians took up
a very fast gait, and just kept in sight
of the troops, for Choisy' could not
ride, out of a slow. trot. We were 'in
an Indian country and it was well
known that all the Territory Indians
Were off their reservation. Choisy ht
came very, nervous, thinking that if
the. Indians were once out of sight we
would be surely lost. We were just
outside of what was known as .the "tim
ber line" and this timber the Indians
wanted to make before dark. For they
knew once they were in sight of the
timber, to Griffin the road was plain.

When in sight of the timber which was
nearly dark one Indian rode back and
said "Catch him timber" and away he
went at a rapid gait. Choisy asked,
"What does he mean by 'Catch him
timber' and I told him the trail to
Griffin was just inside the edge of the
timber and that 1 well know where we
were. He had little confidence in me
as a guide for we did.not find the road
as soon as I expected, and the farther
went into the timber the more he
doubted my ability to find the road, and
when we did not find it he would not
believe that I knew where I was. It
was some few miles to Griffin and when
wc reached the crossing of the Clear
Fork, I asked hiiv if he knew where he
was. He replied "no," nor do 1 be

were human like ourselves and wanted

troops came to Lincoln.
This year Co. Otis was advised by
a young physician at the post that he
was suffering from diabetes. Otis was
a very large man and a great eater and
consumed large quantities of liquids,
though not intoxicating. He thought
as he had an uncurable disease he bet

future. He asked for a sick leave. To

Surgeon Wolverton was necessary.
Wolverton did not believe he had the
diabetes and thought his symptoms
were all the cause of quantities of food
and drink taken. Post Chaplain Jack

us "whatsoever ye would that men
should do unto you, do ye even like

That's a pretty good rule of practice
for everybody. Now, 1 wouldn like
to have my daily newspaper come into
my home bearing an attack upon my
religion. 1 wouldn like to have a man
come into town and lecture in a public
hall and attack the Methodist church.
I might say some pretty severe things
about that organization myself, but I
don't want someone else to do
or a Catholic does not enjoy having
someone attack their religious organi
zations. I prefer living in good-will
among my neighbors.
Some of the best friends you have
are of other regilious faith than yours
if that is not true, you are to be pitied
for the poverty of your friendships.
Some of the most faithful employes of
this office are of religious belief as di
verse from that of the editor as it is
possible to imagine. That difference
does not prevent them doing their
work well, being loyal, kind and true
as steel. Why should they be disturb
ed, or their church attacked)
Why should we want to stir up medi
val bitterness? When all the anxious
forebodings indulged in by some folks
are being actually fulfilled, that will be
time enough to consider a species of
agitation which alienates friends, di
vides communities, creates suspicion
and makes heartaches.
Is it worth while) Is it the method
of the Prince of Peace whom all sec
tions of Christians worship and whose
greatness is admitted by all who do not
worship Him)
Reckless agitation, false statements,
bitter retorts, personal alienations, are
not worth while. Let us in Fargo keep
our good friends let it be our pride
that we are good friends, though of dif
feirng creeds, and let us be big enough,
broad enough and patriotic enough to
work together-for good things, and for
the welfare of our city and country
without descending to acrimonious re
criminations and' attacks upon each
other's religious faith.
A precious thing for any human be
ing is his religious faith. Often it in
volves the tender sentiments clustering
about infancy and home and parents.
When it is attacked or he feels that it
is villified he it hurt and wounded. Let
each man respect his neighbor's con
victions and worhsip. We all see
through a veil darkly.. Everyone of
us has enough to do to take the beam
from his own eye before tackling the
mote in his neighbor's eye.

I am still further improving my

the rules of the Canadian Seed Grow

the small fields above mentioned, I
noticed some plants showing a super

nearly square and filled from end to
end with large kernels. I spent three
days selecting a sack full of these
heads, which W$$j^*shed in a bag to
avoid any possifcje mixture. Last
spring I sowed this seed in the garden
and after the pnf|Us were headed out,
I weeded out any heads not true to the
type I desired. As soon as the grain
was ripe, I selected a sack fullof heads
