Don't Sow
Foul Seed
Land once infested with weed seed
requires patient care and attention to
clean, and you can avoid this annoy
ance and raise better crops by cleaning
out the weed seed and the shriveled
grain with my grader. My machine
takes out the chaff and the imperfect
kernels of grain. Broken or small
grain will make good feed, but nobody
gets good crops by sowing them.
Get a Strese Grader
It cleans your seed by the air-blast
method. Heavy substances are dropped
in a separate container and the shriveled
and light particles are carried beyond
the seed box. Only the plump, perfect
grains are kept for seed.
Clean your seed with my grader and you
will greatly reduce the dockage when your
crop Is sold next 'fall. The machine should
pay for itself In one year by securing better
prices for you. I stand behind every one of
these machines and agree to refund the pur
chase price if the grader does not give satis
faction. Send for full particulars and prices,
and give the name of your dealer. Address

president of North Da
kota Agricultural col
lege, estimates that the
value of dockage in the
1919 wheat and rye crops
of North Dakota was $4,619,918, while
the cost of screening was $1,750,000,
making the net saving of nearly $3,
000,000 possible to the farmer under
the North Dakota law compelling pay
ment for valuable dockage. These and
other statistics of interest to farmers
are cited in the February bulletin of
the Bank of North Dakota, which may

Bismarck, N. D.
An expose has just been made by
the Watertown News of the official
conduct of Commissioner of Public
School Lands N. E. Knight, who is
now a candidate for a third term. Ac
cording to the News Mr. Knight has
permitted favorites of the state po
litical machine to hold school lands
without the payment of the principal,
interest and taxes as required by law.
One of the most flagrant cases is Jhat
of Stitz X. Way, head of the machine
in Codington couiity, who has not paid
any taxes or interest for eight years.
Jerry Bacon of Grand Forks, N. D.,
brother-in-law of Way, has been en
abled to acquire school land holdings
in South Dakota on similar terms.
The debates recently staged in va
rious parts of the state between R. O.
Richards and W. H. McMasters, rival
candidates .for the Republican nom
ination for governor, haye demonstrat
ed that neither candidate offers any
thing constructive for the relief of the
producers of the state. The debates
are proving the inefficiency and the
insincerity of the old parties and con
vincing the voters that the League
offers the only program for the peo
Because of a recent ruling of the
attorney general of the state the Non

In order to win a $2,605 lawsuit,
the Quinn Shepherdson company,
grain brokers connected with the Min
neapolis Chamber of Commerce and
Chicago Board of Trade, admitted in
court recently that future trading is
gambling. The plaintiff testified that
he had tiought and sold rye, oats and
corn for future delivery without any
intention of either delivering or re
ceiving, the grain. The Quinn-Shep
herdson company made a similar ad
mission and then asked an instructed
verdict for them. The court so in-
structed the jury. Under the Minne
sota law, future trading is gambling
if both parties to the transaction ad
mit that delivery was never contem
plated. Heretofore members of the
chamber of commerce have always in
sisted that they expected to make de
livery. The admission of the Quinn
Shepherdson company proves the con
tention of the Nonpartisan league that
practically all future trading is gam

More than 2,000 farmers attended

is the new 1920 model 48, 2-ton,
worm-drive Dearborn. For real
service—for power—for strength—
for economy—for durability under
ordinary and extraordinary condi
tions compare
with any 2-ton truck anywhere at
any price.
The Dearborn is 500 to 2,000 pounds
lighter than other worm-drive
trucks. This new light-weight
strength plusconstruction saves you'
money every time the truck runs.
It gives you more power for the actual
load, and saves gasoline, oil, and tires,
besides relieving the working units of
extra weight strain. The Dearborn is
in every way tlie common sense truck
it is built to cut hauling, repair and
up-keep cost—and it certainly does it.
By every test the Dearborn is best. It
costs less to buy and less to run than the
big, bulky, gasoline-gorging, tire-heating,
overweight trucks. Get down to brass
tacks—see the Dearborn dealer or write
for book "Hauling Expense." It costs
nothing to find out. Write today.
