?rof. W. Hays, assistant secretary
agricultural, is out with a strong
ticle commending the Minnesota
fin of teaching agriculture in the
buntry schools. He says:
|"Next to the experiment of agricult
fal colleges, the inauguration of
ricultural education in the Minne

iost far-reaching experiment in the
Ivancement of American agriculture.

sentatives from 38 met at Fargo last
Thursday and organized the North
Dakota Farmers' Elevator Association,
with O. G. Major of Hope, president.
Mr. Major stated that there were near
ly fifty elevators in the state and that
there should be 500, that they were all
successful, some of them having paid
dividends of 25 per cent, and that they
bad secured better grades and made
prices five cents or more better. A
delegate claimed that Griggs county
had saved $20,000 by having their own
elevators. At Cooperstown the farm
ers' elevator had made $1800 out of
the screenings which farmers give the
Minneapolis elevators and pay freight
on to get it to them. The North Dak
ota farmers' elevators are allying
themselves with the Minnesota Farm
ers' Exchange.
A number of two inch artesian wells
in this county are driving water wheels
that do very satifactory work. Hatton
& Son of Claremont have one, also the
Logan ranch near Ordway, Bullis Bros,
in the western part of the county, and
Chas. Eygabroad on his farm in Lib
erty. The writer has not learned of a
well smaller than two-inch that fur
nishes a fair motor except that of Ly.
man Turner near Columbia, who made
his own wheel which grinds feed and
performs various other lighter tasks.
The other wheels in operation are those
made by Gilborne Bros, of Aberdeen.
The fact that Mr. Darn of Allison
township, who has considerable timber
on his farm by the Elm, has secured
several bushels of walnuts for plant
ing in the spring, has started some dis
cussion as to whether these nut-bear
ing trees will prove hardy in this part
of the state. There is a tree of this
species fifteen feet high,possibly a doz
en years old, growing on the Cassell
place in this city, now owned by Jay
Hagerty. It is perfectly hardy. The
writer last summer saw fourteen wal
nuts trees growing in Ole Everson's
orchard on the Jim river bottom.
They looked as if they might have
been about two or three years old.
Quite a number ef these trees were
seen by Ray Elliott of Brainard on a
farm about three miles south of Mil
bank. They were a dozen feet high
and bad nuts.on them. If Mr. Dorn
plants in ground in good state of culti
vation not shaded by other trees, the
nuts should produce nut-bearing trees
on the Elm.
Is the old style well going out of
existence in Brown county? Are the
pump and windmill, to say nothing
about the old oaken bucket, to be
come obsolete on the farms of the
county? These questions suggest
themselves when we come to consider
the wonderful increase in the number
of artesian wells that are being put
down in many townships in this
county during the last two years. A
majority of the farmers have secured
these wells and many more would
have bad them if the wheat crop had
not failed last year. Franklyn town
ship makes the most remarkable show
ing in this respect. Every farmer in
that town except four now has a flow
ing well.

It (the Beef Trust) defies Wall Street

great railroad corporations long used
to terrorizing others. It takes toll
from big and little, it gouges millions
from railroad companies, and cent
pioces from obscure shippers. Today
it is compelling a lordly railroad to
dismiss its general manager, tomorrow
it is black-listening and ruining some
little commission merchant. It is re
morseless, tireless, greedy, insatiable,
and it plans achievements so much
greater than any so far recorded in
the history of commerce that the
imagination flags in trying'to follow
its future possibilities.

It fixes the price the grower of Cali

the price the laborer of New York
shall pay for his breakfast.
It lays hands upon the melon-grower
of Colorado and the cotton-grower of

The Offering of Port Arthur
In his dreamings the soldier of Nip
pon sees the restless spirits of these
patriots still hovering over Port Arthur
in company with a number of other
men who had fallen before Port Arthur
in taking it from the Chinese. These
unhappy spirits,—in whose existence
we of the Far East believe quite as

persuaded to enter into a realm of
peace until the one aim and end for
which they have shaken away one ex
pression of their earthly life is made
perfect. For the soldier of Nippon to
take Port Arthur over again, is, there
fore, more than a signal victory it is
fulfilling his sacred duty, so to speak,
not only to his country, to the cause of
the permanent peace of the Far East,
but as
well, to the eternal peace of
their heroic dead. Critics from abroad
have said of our soldiers that they are
a silent army. The utter absence of
the spectacular and the stagy in the ac-
tion of our fighting men impressed
them. There is, however, one gallery
to which our men before Port Arthur
are playing, and the gallery is filled
with the saintly shades of their fathers
of their brother comrades who have
passed into the great unknown before
them, that our country's honor might
be stainless. In Nippon we have many
kinds of incense which we burn before
the mortuary tablets of our dead. But
to plant the sun-round flag once again
upon the forts of Port Arthur is, as the
Nippon soldier look at it, to offer to
the heroic dead a flower, the fragrance
of which no incense of heaven can
equal.—From Leslie's Magazine for
Judge Grosscup on Corporations
"We are, I believe," Judge Gosscup
writes, "in the first stage of a sweep of
events that unless turned to a purpose
widely different from that now served
will carry us eventually to a time when
the acquisition of property by the in
dividuals who constitute the bulk of
our people will cease to be one of the
opening and controlling purposes of
their lives. This means that as a re
publican political instutition Amer
ica will have lost the spirt which alone
promises it life. It means social and
eventually political revolution."
The owenership of property, accord
ing to Judge Grosscup, is rapidly drift
ing from the people into the hands of
corporations. Calling-census figures to
his support, he asserts that "corpo
rate domain has within thirty years,
beginning with almost nothing, out
stripped agricultural ownership by
more than 83,000,000,000, and barring
city real estate, comprises now nearly
one-half of the whole wealth of the
"The step in the solution of that pro
blem is that the government obtain a
full grasp of the whole subject matter
and this, in my judgment, can ade
quately be done only by putting aside
the five-and-forty bewildering state
hands for the one great national hand.
The second step, the step for which
the first is taken, is to take care upon
what kind of corporate proposal the
government's great seal is set—to cut
out the stock jobbing corporation the
water-logged corporation: the mere
vision of visioniaries the labyrinthian
corporation whose stock and bond
issues are so purposly angled that no
mind not an expert's can follow their
sinuosities. In short, to regenerate
the corporation.
The third step is to open to the
of the country the road
to proprietorship."—From McClure's
Magazine for February.
Dislocated Her Shoulder
Mrs. Johanna Soderholm, of Fergus
Falls, Minn., fell and dislocated her
shoulder. She had a surgeon get it
back in place as soon as possible, but
it was quite sore and pained her very
much. Her son mentioned that he
had seen Chamberlain's Pain Balm ad
vertised for sprains and soreness, and
she asked him to buy her a bottle of
it, which he did. It quickly relieved
her and enabled her to sleep which
she had not done for several days.
The son was so much pleased with the
it gave his mother that he has
since recommended it to many others.
