In part he said: "One of the big assets that the American people are proud of today is their repu tation ,for peace and good will towards all mankind. In this hour of supreme anxiety and suspense, with the great struggle of the nations of Europee for mastery, the American nation looms up large on the horizon. Not because of the part she will VW on the battlefield but be cause of her peaceful callings. We are blessed with plenty of food and other necessities of life. With a little time for us to adjust ourselves to the condi tions, we can feed equip and clothe the entire world with the 1 Necessities of life- Washington, Aug. 22—The .postoffice department yesterday issued an order against the Farm ers, General service Co-, the Em pire Realty & Investment Co., Simon P. Lesselyoung, W. Brown, all of Minneapolis, bar ring these firms and individuals frcm the use of the mails. The department states that S. P. Lesselyoung, president of the Farmers Gen. Ssrvice Co., rep resented that it was a large manu facturing corporation and that great savings could be. made for #ts metmbers in the sale of their grain and produce and in the purchase of things they required, thereby inducing many farmers in Minnesota and the Dakotas lo subscribe for stock. "Instead of being a large and .reliable concern," the depart ment states, "the Farmers Gen teral Service Co. is but a name adopted by Lesselyoung under which to conduct business on a comparatively small scale "Lesselyoung has no means of purchasing things needed by fartners at lower prices than the faifcners cculd procure them Leg KICKED OUT BY THE U.

The opportunity is ours, and we as a nation are in the pink of condition to embrace the opportunity because of the fact that we have at the helhi of our good ship a wise, good, firm and subtle guiding hand. As time passes history will write his name high in the ranks of the great men of this nation yes, all the nations of the earth today recognize President Woodrow Wilson as the greatest living apostle of peace and prosperity.

In conversation wjth Mr. Noble he stated that he must liave go excited and instead of turning off the gasoline so the foachine would slow down, he thought he turned it on. At any rate his speed caused him to make so large a turn that it was impos sible to miss colliding with the auto, catthing on the running Today we realize that his for eign policy is correct. It is re plete with wisdom and laden with the fruits of peace, "Watchful Waiting" now has its reward." Mr. Hellstrom received1 over 2000 more votes in North Da kota than President Wilson, two years ago and he received 8000 more votes than the average democratic vote of 1912. He is making a stormy campaign which opened in Beach and he says that his chances to be elect ed this year are better than ever. through direct dealings likewise the respondent has no means of selling products of the farmers at higher rates than the latter them selves could obtain."

This overwhelming force of the Kaiser, crushed and broke the armies of the allies and it now admitted both in Paris and Lon don that the allies have been drove back. The allies are slowly falling back before the Kaiser's onpour ing hosts and will make their next stand at the first line of the French defences on French soil. England is dissapointed but hot disheartened at the outcome of the first titanic struggle. The bull-dog spirit is aroused and the English press is unahiimous in ex pressing the opinion that the al lies will yet crush the Kaiser's forces- The details of the great strug gle in which the Kaiser comes out victorious are not yet at hand, but it is admitted that the loss of life was appalling on both sides. Germany has now won her way across Belgium, and holds imporant positions all along the Franco-Belgikim frontier. The way to Paris is a bristling net work of fortifications, however, and the Germans have a hecu lean task to perform if they hew their way through to the French capital- Russia's army is begining to fcour into the eastern frontier of Germany and already has won several notable victories. The Russians have captured Inster burg, and several other iknportant German cities and are preparing to strike at some of Germany's strong fortifications in thi. east. Austria has practically aban doned by its Servian conquest, in fact its forces have been hurled out of Servia, and the Austrians are rushing troops to the Russian border in the effort to head off the invading hosts if the Czar. tDaUey Chronicle Farmers Elevator Co.

Martin Interviewed at Jamestown Says Steel Will Be Laid on South Branch by Oct. 10th Towns to be Called Burkey and OUie- The following item is taken from a Jamestown paper of last week and will be of interest to our readers: "A. L. Martin of Sentinel Butte was a west-bound passenger today from the twin cities. He states that grading operaions are going on in the construction of the new branch railroad from Beach south to the Montana line, a distance of 2 7 miles. There will be two towns on the new line, one called Bur key, in North Dakota, and the other called Ollie, in Montana. The first will be about 14 miles south of Beach and will be locat ed within four miles of the pres ent village of Burkey. A sale of lots by auction will take place in the near future. '"Mr. Martin says the new line goes through a rich wheat produ cing region and will serve a country which is capable of mar keting 1,200,000 bushels of whea'tthis year. Steel on the new line, will be laid by Oct- 10. THE NORTH DAKOTA POTA TO PATCH •.

Two Thieves Get 15 Days .Each While the Third Draws 30 Days and .$10 Fine—Stole Gun, Money and Clothing. Chief, of Police Staith was a busy man the first of the week ap prehending petty thieves and bringing them before the magis trate of justice. A six shooter of no small dimensions and considerable clothing was stolen out of the rooms on the second floor of the Gilbertson biulding and an over coat belonging to Otto Stensrud, from his auto, were stolen some time Sunday night The facts were reported to Chief Smith who had quite an interesting time locating the culprits. Two men were apprehended and the goods recovered. One was ar rested Monday morning about eight o'clock on the streets while the second party, who stole the gun, was caught dcwn near the Farmers Elevator, under which he had hidden the stolen prop erty- After being placed under arrest and lodged in jail, both admitted their guilt and Mr Smith took one of them down to the elevator where he directed the chief to the stolen goods. On Bismarck, Aug.' 25 When the members of the next legisla ture assemble in Bismarck in alittle over four months from now, many people will follow them with some subject in view setae for the purpose of get ting a job, others who will pro pose amendments, repeals or new laws, others again who will fight them and there will be something doing all the time, as there has never been a shortage yet on any of these. BILLS TO COVER MANY SUBJECTS It has been hinted that there will be men and women here who will ask the legislature to enact a law which will prohibit any women on the streets or pub lic highways in the state of North Dakota from wearing peek-a boo waists, a slit skirt or a trans parent dress hereafter, and mak ing the penalty for the violation of this, the same a3 that for in decent exposure. Some suggestions have been made by politicians that the pres ent primary law be repealed or emended. It is argued that the present system is expensive that a poor man cannot afford to run Farm House Burned Down Residence of W- M. Shallock Burned Last Sunday Night, Together With the Contents. During the stortn last Sunday night, the farm residence of W M. Shallock, seven and one half miles south of this city, was struck by lightning and entirely destroyed, together with the con tents. The occupants of the house were Mr. Shallock and his two boys, Mrs. Shallock being at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Edith Schemmeling of Alpha, with wholm she had been looking over the country during the day for plums. Mr. Schallock was awakened a few minutes before the house was struck by a violent clap of thunder and he beleives lightning struck at the same time in close proximity to the house. He then dressed and was seated on the bed at the time the house was struck. He felt the shock and saw a tiny streak of flame go down the side of the wall and al most immediately the entire house was in flames-. Help was near at hand and volunteered services, but it was impossible to even save anything of the con tents, to say nothing of extin cQciety vVetcncat State r1-" Eight Pages Rounds Up Three NUMBER 42 Tuesday they were taken before Justice Rosenberg and sentenced to 1 5 day in the county jail. Tuesday Chief Smith located another party who had stolen $6 from Joe Taylor from his room over the Heath store- Smith was given a description of the fellow and he was located and taken before Justice Heath and was sentenced to 30 days in jail and $ 10 fine. The city has been overloaded with a large number of unem ployed for the past month and considering their number very little trouble has taken place. They have been closely watched by the police and ordered off the streets at night, giving them little opportunity to break into build ings, etc. In addition to what is already here, a large number are reported moving west both along the Milwaukee and Northern Pa cific and it tnay be possible that additional police would have to be put' on to protect property and citizens from the criminai class who always follow the un employed during this time of the year. he nuber cf outside laborers ers at Dickinson has increased to such an extent that extra police man had to be put on there last week. for a office, etc. On the othei' hand there are business men, far mers and laborers who express themselves of being highly in fav or of the primary law, believing it to be one of the best laws we have that to repeal this law will again give the political boss the power of naming and selecting officers for the offices, instead of the people. There is a strong sentiment fa voring a law which will abolish assessors and creating the of fice of county assessor- In the western part of the state, farmers are agitating a law which will empower the cou..ty com missioners to levy a tax for the destruction of jack rabbits. It is claimed that the increase of late years has been great and an im mense amount of grain is destroy ed by them each year- While some people are al ready figuring on new laws the state board of equalization is busy figuring up the cost of a legislature and within the next few days they will make a levy to provide funds for this ex pense. guishing the burning building* Mr. Shallock and the boys saved only what they had on at the time they left the burning build ing, one of the boys going out barefooted. The house was valued at $800 and the contents at $500, with no insurance on either, the policy having expired a few days pre vious. This makes the loss a heavy one.
