The plan, as it has been described
In the press, is to have one day at the
fair designated as North Dakota Po

tend the fair will be invited to visit
the North Dakota building and there
partake, free of charge, of baked po

people of the city of Larimore, North
The idea is a novel one. It originat
ed in the fertile brain of Edgar I*
Richter, editor of the Larimore Pio
neer, and president of the North Da
kota Press association. It was imme
diately adopted by the Larimore peo
pie, who know a good thing when
they see it, and as a result the city and
state will receive a quantity and a
class of advertising which no amount
of money could have bought. The
Herald is glad to contribute its mite

which this excellent idea is being re
In the current number of the
North American Review, Booker T.
Washington offers some trenchant ob
servations on what constitutes Inferi
ority and superiority in individuals
and races. Dr. Washington is a black
man who has spent his life in work
for the people of his own race and
color. In pointing out to the negTo
the way of seir-respect and honor
able service he has performed for him
a service not unworthy to be ranked
with that which struck the shackles
from his phyBiacl being. And, while
his lectures and articles are intended
primarily for the colored man, they
are full of a sound philosophy which
knows neither race nor color, and
which carries an inspiration to 411
who are seeking the better way of
life. In this article Dr. Washington
"There is only room for one race,
one croup, and Anally one individual
to be superior, if superiority consists
in holding a place on top, with every
one else somewhere between that
place and the bottom. On the other
hand, there is opportunity for almost
every one to be superior of superiority
consists in performing some kind of
useful service in an exceptional man
ner. Almost every race and almost
every individual possesses some gifts
that make It or him exceptional. There
is almost certain to be some directions
In whioli an Individual or a race may
be ot greater service than in others.
To seek and find that place is to be
successful. To fill that place in an
exceptional way Is to be sperior.
"What we should strive to do, to
put It Blmply and squarely, is contri
bute our part toward bringing Into
existence a civilization In which su
periority is based on service and not
contribute more than we have to to
maintain a civilization in which super
iority Is based on force. We should
look forward to a civilisation based
on racial peace rather than one based
on racial war and racial subjugation.
"However, it will be along time be
fore the little brown people of the
world will be in a position to enforce
their claims in this way. The black
people of Africa may never be in that
"Meanwhile it is well to remember
•. very large part of the actual prog
ress of the world in the last has been
made by the farmer and the mechan
tic, those who reap and those who
'build, rather than by the soldier with
his implements of destruction. Thrift,
industry, and patience are still the
staples of human progress, and the
peculiarity about them is this, that,
WjMla they may belong separately to
individuals or races, they are counted
part of. the common capital be

Wall Street Journal: A large num
ber of editors of newspapers, publish
ed In language* other than American,
appealed to the public last Monday,
by page-wide advertisement, to stop
the export of arms and munitions of
It is well to get the moral point in
volved quite clear. Nothing is settled
by calling this trade merely a matter
of business. Appeals to neutrality,
likewise, do not cover the ground.
There is a high, moral reason why this
country should continue to export
arms. It is that thereby Oermany's
indefensible war will be shortened
and this country, by such action, pre
serves itself from entering into an al
liance with the kaiser and the sultan.
For a long period before ,the war,
and for such time after its outbreak
as it was possible to replenish sup
plies through Scandinavia, Holland
and Italy, Germany was by far our
largest customer for arms and muni
tions of war. If indeed the: question
is raised in Washington, the first step
to be taken, by those who wish to
keep us out of the European trouble,
would be to demand a scrutiny of the
books of a well known steel corpora
If, at the outbreak of war, this
country had declared, through con
gress, that it would supply arms to
nobody, the step might have been de
fended, although it is wholly without
precedent. But to take such a step now
would be to compensate Germany by
neutralizing" the legitimate advantage
the allies havo secured in the control
of the sea. That this control is ef
fective, in spite of the useless and
murderous submarine raids, is suffi
ciently obvious. It is none of our bus
iness to theorize on what might hap
pen if the ships of all the powers
were at large and able tq destroy each
"Tou're another," Is a retort and
not an argument. But it might be
suggested that no nation in the world
has made such a specialty of the sup
ply of arms to belligerents as Ger
many. She completely armed the
Boers throughout the Boer war, with
out protest from Great Britain. Even
less defensibly, she sold, on long cred
it, instruments for murder to the
Balkan states, without reason or ex
cuse. She Imported arms Into Mexi
co when the. United States was act
ually in the occupation of Vera Cruz.
If it Is to be assumed that this at
tempt to fetter our actions Is part of
the new rules Germany makes as she
goes along, it can only be said that
she herself has consistently treated
even those rules with contempt.
Pat was busy on a road working
with his coat off. There were two
Englishmen laboring on the same
road, so they decided to have a-joke
on the Irishman. They painted a
donkey's head on the back of Pat's
coat and watched to see him put It
on. Pat, of course, saw the donkey's
head on his coat, and, turning to the
Englishmen, said:

Cleveland, April 18.—John D.
Rockefeller's suit against the Cuya
hoga county to prevent the collection
of taxes on $310,000,000 worth of pro
perty was to be heard in the federal
court today. The recent death of Mrs.
Rockefeller, attorneys said, would not
prevent an immediate hearing. Rocke
feller contends that this county has
no authority to tax millions of dollars
worth of stocks and bonds which are
listed in other states. At the be
ginning of proceedings to force pay
ment, Rockefeller abandoned his
Cleveland residence and moved to
Tarrytown, N. D.
It is not necessary to give the devil
his due—he will take it anyhow.

Writing of spring In the high Alps
In his book "Sketches In Italy and
Greece,"' John. Addlngton Symonds
•ays: "The latter end .of May is the
.time when spring beglna- In the high
Alps." Then "the brown turf soon
becomes green' velvet, and the velvet
•tars Itself- with red and white- and
gold and blue. You almost see the
grass and lilies grow. First come pale
crocuses and,, lilac soldanellas." "Next
come the clumsy gentians &**d yellow
anemones, covered with Soft down' like
fledgling birds.- These are among the
earliest and hardiest blossoms that
embroider the high meadows with a
diaper of blue and gold. About the
same time primroses and auriculas be
gin to tiift the dripping rocks, while
frail white fleurs-de-lis, and golden
balled ranunculuses join with forget
me-nots and cranesbill in a never end
ing dance upon the grassy floor. Hap
py, too, is he who finds the lillee of the
valley, clustering about the chestnut
boles upon the Colma, or In the beech
wood by the stream, at Macugnaga,
mixed with garnet colored columbines
and fragrant white narcissus, which
the people of the villages call 'Anglo
lint.' There, too, Is Solomon's seal,
with waxen bells and leaves expanded
like the wings of hovering butterflies."
But It is perhaps of a certain species
of London-pride that he writes with
the keenest appreciation. "It Is a great
majestic flower," he says, "which
plumes the granite rocks of Monte
Rosa In the spring. At other times of
the year you see a little tuft of flesny
leaves set like a cushion on cold ledges
and dark places of dripping cliffs.

those weeds doomed to obscurity, and
safe from being picked because they
are so uninviting—and you pass It by
incuriously. Bht about June it puts
forth Its power, and from the cushion
of pale leaves there springs a strong
pink stem, which rises upward for
awhile, and then curves down and
breaks Into a shower of snow white
