them is not known definitely. From
what little can be gathered from the
older Indians it is believed her parents
were killed years ago by a band of
hostile Sioux, and probably one of the
band took a fancy to the then baby
and adopted her. She cannot speak a
word of Enylish, knows nothing of
the ways of the whites, has an Indian
name and is carried on the government
rolls as such.
Former Governor Herrier, while
hunting on the reservation some time
ago, ran across "Wasicun Wivan"
and thus described her in an address
to the Aberdeen Y. M. C. A.
The poor old women did not show

Tuesday's primary election
proved disastrous to the ambi

the Rood will of the North state
is concerned. Hitherto deemed

its votes, the sage of Oyster Bay

greater popularity of Sen. La
Follette and—the diplomacy of
Taft's supporters.
A total of 60 per cent is claim
ed for LaFollette. 1167 precincts
out of 1800 gave him 34,159 votes,
while Roosevelt got 22,877. The
Taft vote was almost nothing,
owing to the determination of
Taft supporters to oppose Roose
velt in the most effectual manner.
Along with LaFollette the
fruits of this victory come like
wise to Ex-Congressman Tom
Marshall, who ran with
lette as candidate for national
committeeman and thus once
more becomes a big power in
North Dakota.
The storm and cold of Tuesday
had some influence in keeping
down the vote, but it is now con
ceded that the result would have
been changed but little even if
weather conditions had bee n
more favorable.

Saturday of last week was a
busy day at the Commercial Club
rooms, at which place Walter F.
Kelley, the chivalric auditor of
Adams county, held forth, dish
ing out seed grain orders to some
150 of his fellow citizens of the
Adams county east end. The
stalwart forms of so many yeo
men, all from a small part of the
county, gave the streets a decid
edly animated appearance, and
proved to the casual observer
"ad aculos" that there's a good
sized army of workers wintering
on their holdings, and preparing
for another season's effort. Ar
rangements were made to have
some fifty other applicants who
were unable to appear Saturday,
or whose papers were not ready,
sign up before J. F. Paul Gross,
at their earliest convenience.
