The Sheaf's big, double-district,
popularity prize election will come to
a close on Saturday, Oct. 19, at 9:00
p. m. sharp. At that time over $900 in
prizes will be awarded to the girls
competing for them. There is still
time to work and no candidate, who
wants one of the pianos, should lose
a minute of the few remaining days
until the close. The race for the pi
anos in both districts is so close that
a few subscriptions may win or lose
a piano for the topnotchers. This is
no time for lagging footsteps, hesitan
cy, but a time for action, energy and
good hard work.
Don't forget the value of the prizes

or second growth.
Under these conditions it hardly
seems advisable to store unless the
grower has good storage facilities at"
hand and a crop of unusually good
quality. Potatoes must be in good
condition and well ripened if they are
to be stored advantageously. ,/To
store green potatoes ^s to court dis
aster. 1 ri-vV
Doubtless potatoes will advance in
price as the winter progresses. The
question is, can they be put on the
market at the time when the demand
is keen? For example, to store a few
carloads some distance from the mar
ket and be unable to get them on the
market when some cold snap or other
condition sends prices up would bj a
losing proposition to the grower.--i
jj 'With regard to seed stock there is
not so much doubt. Good, pure type
seed will probably be very valuable
by spring because so much
of the seed in this section is affected
by rot, scab or other bad condition.
To the writer, the best place to store
this seed appears to be some ..such
central point as the Twin Cities or
Chicago. Here the cost of storage is
not high. If well ripened seed of pro
per quality is selected? the gain of
holding will undoubtedly more than
offset the cost of storage.
OSCAR HILDEN, OF OSLO, LOSES
LIFE BY ACCIDENTAL DIS-
a CHARGE OF GUN
Oscar Hilden, of Oslo, met almost
instant death by the accidental dis
charge of a gun when out hunting on
Friday afternoon of last week. Two
other men were with him at the time,
all riding in a buggy or light wagon.
Noticing that the gun was about to
fall out of the wagon, Oscar made a
grab for it and in pulling it towards
him the gun in some manner was dis
charged, the contents lodging in the
abdoihen of the unfortunate young
man, killing him almost instantly.
The sad accident has plunged sev
eral well known families in the deep
est sorrow and has cast a gloom over
the entire community where it hap
pened^ Deceased was one of the
promising young business men of the
village, he haying been engaged in
the drug business there for some
years, and was a young man who was
most highly esteemed and respected
by all who knew him. The parents
of deceased, Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Hil
den, are among the earliest settlers
on Red River. They are now living at
Baudette, where the sad news reached
them.?* A brother, J. A. Hilden is the

"3ABY DIES EVERY SECOND
Of the 55,000,000 babies born every
year, 15,000,000 of them die before
they are a year old, according to the
statement of Edward B. Phelps at the
International Congress on Hygiene
and Demography in Washington. This
means 40,000 babies die every day,
and the United States contributes
1,000. In Sweden-and Norway where
nearly all babies are breast fed, the
infant mortality is smallest.
Dr. William H. Davis of Boston said
the deaths of infants would be 60 per
cent less if none were fed from a bot-

infant mortality is preventable. All
nations are just waking to this fact.
