Diamond Gang Plow
That stands Head and shoulders above any other riding plow' made
anywhere, by anybody, at any price.
It is this—I t's Special Controlling Rod provides for the rigid locking
of the rear wheel when plowing, and the automatic unlocking of the same
when turning a corner. ||j|gj||g|
... A square corner can be turned without touching a single lever,
Even the deviation of the team does not affect the true, straight path
of the rear wheel and the plow.
In other words, you don't have to watch the Diamond Plow at all. ,,,
It works automatically in its changes. That saves worry. Ll£m
This is but ONE point.
There are others equally as telling.
We know of no other plow so substantially put up.
We know of no other plow that does as good work.
We know of no other plow built of such staunch materials....,
.If we did, we wouldn't handle the Canton.
Come in and let us show you the whys and wherefores of the Canton.
Maylje you'd be of the same opinion as we, then.

tered more than seventy stations, a
majority of which will be at new
locations, either where there is al
ready a town established, or where
the company expects one to spring
up with the advent of the road.
The country to be opened up by
this new road is a good one, especi
ally in Montana, probably more fer
tile than any turn which the road
will pass on its way to the coast.
The route through Montana is far
from any of the other liries of rail
road and passes through a section
which long has been famous for its
fertility and wealth of natural re
It is estimated that when the road
is built a new town will be estab
lished about every tefa miles. Some
of these doubtless will remain only
stations, but with the development
of Irrigation projects now being un
dertaken by the federal government
and by private corporations, and the
vast increase in population which is
bound to come wltih the building of
the new road, many of the towns
to be established along the Milwau

centers of Importance.
It Is understood that the road Is
making arrangements to advertise
extensively the resources *of the

coast extension will pass.
PRAISE FOR THE NORMAL
Pierre Newspaper Man Writes of His
ViBit to. Institution
"A Dakotan representative enjoyed
an hour at the Northern Normal and
Industrial School this week and
noted the progress which the school
had made and the growth of its
student boiiy. The enrollment to date
for the present year is 352, seventy
five of wihom are in the model school.
The published reports relating to the
crowded condition of the institution
have not been exaggerated- Although
the assembly hall, which is' the only
study room about the school, has
been enlarged by cutting out the
partition between- it and a large
room formerly used for recitations,
it is crowded to a most uncomfortable
degree. Every form Is filled and al
ready the management is forced to
seat three students in two chairs
and there is every probability that
before the holidays even by this un
comfortable crowding the place will
not accommodate the regular normal
students. The pupils of the model
school can no longer be brought into
the chapel because of the lack of

TO HAVE PAROCHIAL SCHOOL
Stem Being Taken For Erection of
A deal is under way that means
that Aberdeen is soon to have a fine
arochlal school on the north side,
iev. F*r. N. J. Dahlmanns, pastor of
St. Mary's German Catholic church
on the. north side, Is negotiating for
the purchase of three lots Just south
of the church on north Kline street,
and it is understood that the deal is
just about closed. Before snow tails
it Is .possible that work may com
mence on the excavation of the cellar
and basement of the building*
Father Dahlmanns has been con
sidering the project of erecting a
parochial school for some time, but It
has been difficult to raise the amount
of money nece$sary. This feat has at
last been practically assured and it
is certain enough to guarantee the
purchase of the lots. It Is estimated
that $10,000 wliil be sufficient for
buying the lots and erecting the ne
A parochial school, if built, and
everything seems to point to its erec
tion, will be of great Importance to
the city schools. At the present time
the ward schools on the north side
are crowded to overflowing in spite
of tho fact that one of the new
portable schools was (placed there this
fall. Some weeks ago Superintendent
of Schools W. L. Cochrane made the
statement that notwithstanding the
addition of the portanbe school to the
north side that the buildings there
could not accommodate comfortably
all of the children that applied for
admission on the opening day. As
the great majority of pupils on the
north side are German Catholics the
erection of a parochial school would
ease the congestion of the city schools
to a very large decree.
WANTS ANOTHER CARRIER
Williams Thinks Aberdeen Entitled
Postmaster H. S. Williams gave
an interesting discussion yesterday
morning to a representative of the
American concerning the putting on
of a fifth carrier in this city, a mat
ter which is now being looked Into
by the postoffice Inspector of this
district He said that there were just
two ways of improving the delivery
service. One was to have the fifth
carrier put on, or in case that was
hot allowed to cut off the free de
livery to the outlying portions of the
•city. Should the latter course be
adopted the portions to suffer would
be the Wolvert'on addition, a part Of
the southern end of the city, and the
West Hill addition. If the carriers
from those portions are taken away
the residents will be compelled to get
all of their mall out of the general
delivery at the postoffice.
Mr. Williams said that he bad been
studying the figures submitted In the
last postoffice report to see what per
cent of the total receipts of the post
office department throughout the
country went toward maintaining the
free delivery system. The average
cost of the service he found to be a
trifle over 19 iper cent. The Aber
deen service at the present time,
which Includes four carriers, is but
10 per cent of the receipts of the
local office. He feels that Aberdeen
is entitled to another carrier, as the
four at the present time employed
find it impossible to cover their routes
in the eight hours in which they are
allowed to work.
GAVE BACK THE MONET
A. A. Handy, one of the earliest
settlers of this county, who has re

twenty-one years, at New Berlin, N.
Y., had an experience with a tough

discretion the better part of valor.
He chanced to be In the rear of the
Sherman House bar room in a narrow
alley that leads out into the open
lot, when he was accosted by. a large,
burly, surly looking hobo, who asked
him for money. Mr. Handy Is getting
somewhat advanced in years and he
considered ^, possible tussel with the
stranger would not be pleasant. He
quietly asked t$e Stranger how much
he wanted and the latter replied
he thought that $2 would be about
right. (Mr. Handy forked over the
money without a word and went into
the saloon, followed by the hobo.
When both were inside Mr. Handy
demanded the return of the money,
threatening to call the police If he
did not do so. The hobo then calmly
returned the money, but forgot to
thank his benefactor for the short
