"HOW TO GROW BIGGER AND BETTER CROPS" By Dr. W. E. Taylor, Soil Ex pert, at the Opera House, Tuesday, Feb. £0.—Every Par mer in Roberts County Should Be Present. The Sisseton Commercial Club, recently organized, have already began active work for the up building of Sisseton and Roberts county and among the notable features arranged tor this season: will be Dr. W. E. Taylor, soil expert, who will give a free lec ture at the opera house, next Tuesday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock on soil and general farming. Dr. Taylor is undoubtedly just the man we have been looking for. He is not a book and paper farm er, but a practical farmer, and has been for the past twenty years. Dr. Taylor can do us all some good—he has made a study of soil and that is just what we are anxious to learn about. We are not prepared for another crop •failure and Dr. Taylor is the man to help us out. He is an expert in all lines which he will discuss and is prepared to answer all questions asked on all matters pertaining to the soil and farm ing. He will discuss local con ditions and its remedy and there is not a farmer in Roberts county who can afford to miss it. Come! Bring your family and especially the boys who help you with the farm work. You will gain knowledge that will be of help to you as long as you till the soil. Nice Notice from North Dakota* We see by the Sisseton papers that 0. E. Lien of that city, will be a republican candidate for auditor of Roberts county. Mr. Lien was an early settler of Lien township and has always been active in every project for the betterment of farming conditions and the best interests of the farmers. He is well qualified in every way for the position and has a host of friends on this side of the line who only regret, that they are unable to assist him in landing the place. If they have any more genial and honest citi zens in Roberts county than 0. E. Lien, it hasn't been our pleas ure to meet them. Hankinson News. CLEAN SEED.

Pillsbury Best for sale don Bros. by Gor Pound—An Honest Man. The other night, while the edi tor of this great family journal was at Bismarck, N. D., he in advertently and unexpectedly discovered an honest man—not intimating, of course, that hon est men are especially rare in the capital city of North Dakota. But the particular man we refer to was an exception to the es tablished standard of honesty. He came to our room in the Hotel McKenzie, one evening, and asked us if we were a brother of the late C. C. Knappen. On be ing assured that we were, he said that several years ago, while C. C. was in business at Grand Forks, N. D., he (the speaker) had become indebted to Charlie in the sum of $4, and that he thought at this time the interest on the debt would amount to about $1. He therefore request ed us to accept his check, made in favor of the widow of the late C. C. Knappen, for the sum of $5 which we accordingly did, in admiration and amazement. The name of this exceptional gentle man is I. C. Davies, and he is a practicing attorney at Bismarck. N. )). If the people are looking for honest men, they will cer tainly elevate Mr. Davies to one of the highest positions within their gift. A Decided Success. Good morning! Did you attend the leap year dance given by the ladies of the Jubilee Dancing Club at the opera house, Monday evening? If you didn't, you missed the event of the season. It sure was some dance. The opera house was tastefully deco rated in the national colors, in honor of the day (Lincoln's birthday) the floor was in excel lent condition the music was furnished by the celebrated Stewart orchestra, and the ladies (God bless them) were at. their very best—all of which made the affair one long to be pleasantly remembered. About fifty coup les participated in the festivities, and everybody reports "just a dandy time." The decorations were decidedly distinctive and appropriate, and were arranged by Miss Mabel Sweeney and Hub Bollenbeck. The success of the function was largely due to the untiring efforts of Mrs. Arthur Bennett and Miss Sweeney. Gets Big Price For SpudB.

Egan Draws Full House. George Washington Egan can didate for governor, played to a full house at the opera house last night and outside of being a good "actor" we cannot see but what George is just like the average office hunting politician making promises to reform the world and still unable to create even a shadow of reform in his own precinct. In the midst of his speech the fuse burned out in the electric light and left Eg:in and his audience in the dark, which of course pat Egan's 'playing to the galleries' on the blink, and as it is well known to be his 'stock in trade' he was soon hollerin' for light, hat the audience might behold the only "simon pure," "dyed in the wool" reformer, in cap tivity.
