Jas. D. Gray of Company announced Saturday morning that Company now has its authorized enlistment and that no more recruits can be accepted until authority has been given to enlist more men or some of the guardsmen are discharged.

Commissioner of Insurance S. A. Olsness urges the protection of crops the coming season by adequate hail- insurance. The magnitude of the investment in labor and seed is too great to neglect hail insurance. Hail storms are non-preventable.

In speaking of the hail insurance problem in a communication Mr. Olsness says: "We have in our state four plana for. Insuring crops against hail: Self-insurance, so-called Hne insurance, mutual insurance and state insurance. Of these plans, the line insurance is the most costly to the North Dakota Farmer, because such companies are operated for profit to the stock-holders, and because most of them are organized in other states, thus taking large sums of our money out of North Dakota. The state mutuals charge practically the same rates as the line companies, but they return to the policyholder pro rata whatever funds might be left, after all operating expenses have been paid.

As will be seen, ail the money under this plan is kept in the state." Advocates State Plan. As a state official Commissioner Olsness believes it has duty to advocate the patronage of the state hall insurance plan, now in force under the existing law, in which assessors take applications which must be accompanied by cash, which is a great handicap to the state plan, as banks offer to carry botes for insuranco without interest until A good many assessors do not carry the blanks. Mr. Olsness says the state plan is the cheapest of all except because low operating expense. The premium on 100 acres at 30 cents is $30.

The assessor's fee is 50 cents. The maximum insurance is $800. On the old line plan at a 65 cent rate the premium on $800 insurance is $52.00. By borrowing the money for si months at 10 per cent interest the state plan will cost for 100 acres $32. Many object to the state plan for the reason that it does not offer the amount of protection wanted and the commissioner suggests that the farmer who wishes more insur ance than the state plan offers should patronize the state plan for at least one policy and other companies for the balance.

WILL CALL ANOTHER JUDGE. Judge Amidon has announced Fargo that he will call in another judge to try the Clark-Crockyd case, which was scheduled to begin Thursday at Bismarck. The term promises to be of much interest, and a large number of attendants and witnesses have arrived in Bismarck for the term. ar. THE WASTE IN PEELING POTATOES RAW Often times the potato is peeled before boiling.

This is a wasteful practice as considerable of the potato is removed with the peel. An other point to consider is that the protein and mineral matter in a po tato lie near the skin. The Home Economics Department of the North Dakota Agricultural College have just completed an experiment to determine the loss in peeling potatoes raw. With the medium sized potato 'the loss was 19 to 21 pcent whent the potato was pared very thinly, and with small potatoes the loss amounted to 25 per cent. When peeled after being boiled the loss in peeling was 9 per cent.

In this case however, just the skin was removed and the layer next the skin that is richest in food value was saved. The potato cooked in its jacket has a better flavor than the potato boiled, after being peeled, but it will not be quite as white. It 1b ej mated that when potatoes are pared before cooking the loss on one equal to one pound of sirloin steak in food value. If the potatoes are wilted, they should be soaked before using. This is especially important: If they are to be pared raw as a thinner peeling can be removed.

A considerable saving can bo made by cooking potatoes in their jackets. A better flavor 1b also secured. PURCHASED NEW SNOW PLOW An order has been, placed by the Midland, Continental Railroad for a new Russell snbw plow. of the largest size of that kind arid only excelled by the rotory plow. The plow is manufactured In Pennsylvania and weighs 85,000 pounds.

It will be delivered her in time for use next winter, if needed. Its cost is over 750. The company also expects to receive three additional locomotives. It la preparing to put up a protection of snow fences for next winter, and not to be again caught without snow plow or snow fence as was the case last winter. Schneider, Earl L.

The Young Men's Christian Association is playing a most important part both in the training camps and on the battle fields.

We know too well that the first few weeks of a boy's life away from home in new and isolated surroundings, with its drill and routine, lias headed many a fellow toward the road of reckless ruin. The story of the ruinous influences that about the camps on the Mexican border are familiar to all and the story of what the Association did for the fellows there is also widely known. Without the help of the Y. M. C.

A. many of our fellows would have come back to us poorer in manhood and character, rather than stronger. The praise of the officers from the Commander-in-Chief down to the Sergeant, and along the line of privates is one of united enthusiasm for the Y. M. C.

A. and its secretaries. Chaplain John McNab of the Second Canadian Contingent, writing of his experiences in the European war, tells of the terrible days when men were being tried to their utmost. An Association secretary moved among them and heedless of danger, distributed chocolates, chewing gum, socks, towels, and in other ways cheered the men at their heavy tasks. In writing of his last impressions in Somme, he says: "One day last September, the Canadian Highlanders were coming out a smelling hour of duty in the trenches.

As we passed up the road a- little behind the lines, the shells screamed overhead trying to find our gun positions. When we reached the plain we found that three Association marquees were erected. The Highlanders were beseiging the canteen, six deep, obtaining sandwiches and tea others were busy putting on dry, clean socks which they had received, and still others charmed by the music, were crowded around a gramaphone, listening to John McCormack sing, "I Hear You Calling Me." As the last stragglers, war weary, dragged themselves into the tent, you could see the smile of appreciation of finding here a little bit of hope and a change from the frightfulness of war." The plan of organization of the War Council appeared in the Saturday issue. The foregoing stories give just a hint as to some of the work that is carried on with the men on the field of battle and in camp. An.

endless number of stories could be told by fellows who have been at the front, or in camps of the work of the Y. M. C. A. and how it has been a help-and to them: A local committee has been organized to look after Jamestown's share in work of carrying the Y.
