In reply to the sentiment voiced early in the day that Fargo and Grand. Forks, by agreement controlled the meetings of the association, President Kelly replied that it is to be regretted that these two cities have never bettn known to actually agree on any mat ter.. The Women's clubs of the state it was pointed out are exercising a mighty influence for good, which will pass from the teaching profession if it does not take more interest in com munity uplift.

Dakota Drug Store I Cent Sale Brings Good Results AN OPPORTUNITY SELDOM GIVEN BY THIS UP-TO-DATE CONCERN —PUBLIC BENEFITTED (From Monday's Daily.) The Dakota Drug Store closes to night a sale that is unique and that brought the desired results. It might have been termed a One Cent Get Ac quainted Sale. A special effort was made to secure visitors who would get the Dakota Drug Habit and in order to start them the staple goods in the store were offered for one cent for each article, that is by buying one ar ticle at the regular price another of the same kind could be had for an ad ditional cent. The reputation of the Dakota Drug Co for square dealings is so well es tablished that people did not hesitate to buy freely and as a result the spec ial "one cent sale" made a hit with the management as well as with the pub lic, and resulted in many visitors to the store who might not have been at tracted without some special induce ment.
