FARMERS UNITE They Will Assemble in St. Paul to Form State Organi- zation. A convention will be called in St.Panl within two weeks for the purpose of forming a state farm ers' organization. Farmers in nine states represented at the convention of the National Farm ers' association in Chicago this week will assemble in a short time for a similar purpose. The meeting will be called by C. E.Jackson of Buckman.Minn., who was elected by the fanners of Morrison county as a delegate to the national convention. Mr. Jackson returned from Chicago Thursday. He has been author ized to call the convention, and a number of organizers from the national association will arrive here to assist him in carrying out the project. Plans and by laws on which it is proposed to form the organization will be sent to Mr. Jackson in a few days. Branch associations will be form ed in each county. "The purpose of the organiza tion is to protect farmers from monopolists and other organiza tions that conflict with the inter ests and general welfare of the farmers," said Mr. Jackson yes terday afternoon. "Under the state organization county and precinct branches will be estab lished. It is our intention to build up, if possible, the farming industry throughout Minnesota, and to unite our efforts with those -of other states that $re now or ganizing under tfie.same plan. We, as farmers,, believe that heretofore we have not had jus tice in disposing of the products .and stock of the farm. The meeting is for the purpose of regulating and maintaining the rights of both farmers and con- .sumers." Concentration. The men who manage some of the largest enterprises in the world work but four or five hours a clay, and younger men thus argue that they need not work long hours to be successful. The point, however, is that the man who can do his work in four hours has gained the informa tion necessary by years of hard labor and probably exceptionally long hours. He concentrates his mind on the matter in hand and turns it off in a few hours, but he must have'health and strength to do it and for this reason he will drink golden grain belt beer reg ularly with his meals. It's the best tonic ever brewed and should be in every home. Order of your nearest dealer or be supplied by John F. Essler, Bemidji. Routs Sign Painters. The following clipping from an eastern paper was handed in with the suggestion that similar meas ures be taken in Bemidji: When painters of signs on fences disregarded the protests of Rosa Ernat, of Trenton, N. J., she armed herself with a meat ax, but did not intimidate them. She then brought out a bucket of whitewash, and as fast as the painters did the work she spoiled it with, the whitewash. The painters gave up the job. Button's Business College, Crookston, Minn., gives a com plete commercial, shorthand and typewriting course in three months.

With the command for her to give up her pocketbook the foot pad shoved a big revolver in the wo man's face.

When the bandit had gone and she realized what had happened she nearly fainted. OLYMPIA INTO DRYDOCK. May Take Three Months to Repair the Cruiser.
