B4R ASSOCIATION ELECTS OFFICERS ATTORNEY JOHN KXAUF, JAMESTOWN, PRESIDENT O. J. SEILER SEC.-TREAS. The session was a successful one in-every respect, and was well attendedHjy lawyers from all over the state. There was a report by the committee on legislation enacted at the last session of the legislature, but no recommendations reported on the matter of future legislation. A fine address was delivered by Judge Willard who was first on the program with the annual address. Judge Nuchols also delivered an excellent address, and a paper was read by Attorney 'Qwe$ of Wllliston on the inheritance fax law. The entire meeting was greatly enjoyed by those present. The visitors were given an auto ride to the government experimental station, the reform school, and old Fort Lincoln. Mandan was complimented highly upon the entertainment of the visitors. The attorneys were highly entertained at the experimental station nel^ Mandan, where much work is being done by both the state and federal government. While at the station a number of watermelons, grown at the farm, were produced and for the first time the lawyers as an association "cut a melon" and enjoyed 7 .easing it. The address of Judge Willard gave North Dakota attorneys some new points in regard to the sentences of criminals, and the punishment accorded for the conviction of various crimes by the Spanish government. Judge Willard was for eight years judge in the Philippines, and learned to speak ^the -Filiplno. language. He showed that there was much less discretion allowed tire jjidges under the Spanish system, in sentencing criminals than is permitted in this country. Here the law .gives a judge the right to impose sentence, in some cases from $1 to 110,000 as a fine, and as much as ten years in the penitentiary. A judge may act upon a whim or upon i t, aidjust it the other way. Judge -Willard, who is regarded as one of the ablest federal judges in the west, gave the North Dakota attorneys much food for reflection in hiB interesting address.

To Fix Assessment for Members for 1014 Losses. The regular September meeting of the officers and directors of the Alliance I-Iail association was held at the ent: Messrs. Tschida of Glen Ullin county, and Griffith of Ward county. The hail season has proved lighter than usual and up to the 12th of August was particularly light, compared with other years, but at that time a hail period began in the northern part of the state, in which the usual number of losses were more than double for a number of days. Notwithstanding the hail of that period, the assessments on the members of the company for the payment of losses will be less than last year, and will probably be fixed at five and one-half per cent. o DEMAND STRONG FOR PEACHES Prices Are Comparatively Low and Quality is Good. Minneapolis, Sept. 13.—Some lines of fruit have moved out very freely during the week, the large call being especially noticeable on peaches, on which the price has ruled very low, and the quality all that could' be desired. The states of Colorado and Washington are each shipping freely and the fruit that has been coming forward is as fancy as ever came out of the west. Rather liberal arrivals are looked for the coming week, but this will close the season on cheap peaches, although straggling shipments will be coming forward for some time to come. California grapes are also in good supply, and values are reasonable, but the dry weather has had a bad effect upon the crop and it is expected that shipments will not be as heavy as last year. The apple situation is showing up fairly well on desirable stock. There is no outlet here for outside stock except on shipping orders, as local growers are keeping retailers heav..y supplied. The outside call^demands barrel Btock of good quality, and such goodB are commanding around 13.50 per barrel, the average price for the season of year on good stock. Goods received in baskets and assorted sized boxes are handicapped, as the outlet is limited. Shippers Bhould see that apples are properly graded, as the same amount of apples by several new commodities during the week that have met with favor with the trade. Cranberries have sold unusually well for first arrivals, and are of good quality, well matured, and richly colored. Michigan barrel pears have sold well, the short- and kegs. Colorado pink meat cantaloupes are again in market, and the supply of home-grown Osage, and Jap coming in at present, has a tendency to hold the general price level aown to reasonable figures. Watermelons are in good supply and fine, but the cooler weather is not favorable to a heavy movement. CORN AND ALFALFA PRIZES. The management of the North Dakota Industrial Exposition has decided to make the following changes in Lot 57 of Class C, Corn, and make the premium list read as follows: For best and greatest variety of corn exhibited from any county: Lot t57, Bismarck Lot 57, third, 5 feet McCormlck new Big Four mower, donated by International 100 first,- cash $ Lot 57, second, elegant gold watch, works donated by Waltham Watch Co., case dtonated by E.

Washington, D. C., Sept. 13.—David F. Houston, secretary of agriculture, within the next few days will address a letter to the women members of 50,000 farm households throughout the United States, requesting them to give him information as to how the department of agriculture can best serve the needs of the farm women. These letters will be addressed "To Housewives in the Homes of Official Crop Correspondents," and will be sent to the full list of crop correspondents for transmission to the women members of their households. With each letter will be. supplied a return envelope in which the women can forward their suggestions. This inquiry results from the receipt of a letter addressed to the secretary in which the writer said: "The farm woman has been the most neglected factor in the rural problem, and she has been especially neglected by the national department of agriculture." This letter was written not by a woman but by a broad minded man, so thoroughly in touch with the agricultural and domestic needs of the country that his opinions have great weight. Following the receipt of this letter the secretary determined that the best way for the department to learn how to give these women the fullest possible aid and' service which their important place in agricultural development warrants, was to write to the women themselves and ask them to make their own suggestions. In the letter these women are invited to give individual answers to the letter or to discuss the matter in their church societies or women's organizations and submit answers representing the combined opinions of the women of their entire communities. The answers are requested not later than Nov. 15th, and this date is set because it will give the women time after harvest to consider the matter and discusB it with their women neighbors. This .letter will go to about twenty leading farms in each of the twenty-eight hundred counties of the United States. Their answers, it is expected, will represent the views and opinions of upwards. of 500,000 farm women. TheBe answers will be carefully considered by the specialists of the department having to do with that branch of agricultural activity. STATE BOARD MEETS. The state board of optometry will meet at Fargo on the 23rd' of this month. ThiB is the first meeting of the new state optometry board, and a regular examination of applicants will be given at that time. A. G. Tellner of Jamestown is a member of the board.

Norway is enjoying a period of good times, which have resulted in various industrial developments of which the saltpeter fertilizer products are the most interesting. Saltpeter Products. *It sounds like a fairy tale to hear how the largest waterfall in Norway, the Rjukan, producing 600,000 horse power, have been utilized by Mr. Sam Eyde, one of the brightest engineers of the day. A city sprung up iamong the wild mountains and saltpeter extracted out of the air of which raw material there seems an unlimited supply. I have investigated! this matter to some extent and had several conferences with Mr. Eyde and his assistants who seem awakening to the great field offered in the northwest, where fertilizing products must soon be needed, and for the purpose of laying this matter before our farmers, I bring with me lots of data and lantern slides to use when occasion may require. Whaling Industry. The whaling industry-in the South seas is another enterprise which has brought enormous riches to Norway, as fourteen companies there are said to control 75 per cent of the world's production of whale oil. Shipping lines in Australia, South and North America, Mexico and Africa have been formed and thrive. It is wonderful what that little country has undertaken in shipping circles all over the world. Visit of Europe. As usual the German emperor made his annual summer visit to the west coast and this time he brought along a wonderful bronze statue of a Norwegian Viking, Frithjof, of which Elias Tegner has written such a grand poem, called "Frithjof's Saga." The' emperor made the unveiling of this enormous statue quite an occasion, which brought about 6,000 people to Balestrand, where there ordinarily are perhaps 100. The statue is most imposing, being about 34 feet high, standing on a rock base 38 feet high, near the water's edge amongst the wild mountains. Norway's king, Haokon VII, was also present with many dignitaries, and those who were there had seen a most wonderful spectacle. Gift Taken Differently. There were many strange tales about the affair. Some say the natives very much dislike the giving of the statue by the emperor. It was said the farmier who sold the ground for the statue to the emperor had charged an exhorbitant fee, that a son of the farmer had' sued his father for making the sale of the ground, and such rot. It is certain, however, that the press articles were very much divided. Some represented that the emperor had brought along half a hundred war ships and did not even like it that the English maneuvrod in the North sea close to the Norwegian coast with 200 men-of-war. I try to judge the whole affair from the point of view of a Norwegian living abroad. I should say that the gift of the emperor ought to be gracefully received with many thanks that his action is sure to bring a lot of customers to Balestrand each year, and that 4t must have been very little harm the war ships did on this occasion. Royal Couple Popular. Several times I have seen reports in the American papers that the king and queen of Norway have been losing prestige, insulted on the streets, and become unpopular. I made special inquiry about these fables and even from those who are unfavorable .'to the kingdom. I learned that the royal couple and the crown prince enjoy the utmost of respect, are as popular as can be, and win the populace with their generosity and straight forward manners. It is a common sight to see the queen or the king walk along in the streets of Christiana, or take skidding excursions alone in the mountains in winter. IT. S. Mii)iat«r Well Received. The newly appointed United States minister to Norway has received much unfavorable comment in the Norwegian press from articles coming from the United States, and it certainly is not to the country's credit that such reports preceed the gentleman, selected for such a prominent position, but of late there seem to be beard the other side of the story and that he is an able man who will give good account of himself. Bryan Criticised. Whenever I come, however, I hear moBt sneering remarks about Bryan's S I will sell at my farm, w. 1-2 34-149-65, at private sale, the following personal property: 1 Top Buggy. 1 Feed Mill. 1 Gas. 1-H.

The cost of living has increased in Europe also, but I still find it comparatively cheap in Norway, Denmark and Germany, while Switzerland and Holland seem to advance very rapidly. He was' arrested at Larimore Saturday and brought here, being taken later to Valley City, to the jail there. The judge deferred sentence this morning, wishing further time to consider the case, and Marion will be taken back to Valley City. WHEN HER BACK ACHES A Woman Finds All Her Energy and Ambition Slipping 'Away. Janlestown women know how the aches and painB that often come when the kidneys fail make life a burden. Backache, hip pains, headaches, dizzy spells, distressing urinary troubles, are frequent indications of weak kidneys and should be checked in time. Doan's Kidney Pills are for the kidneys only. They attack kidney dislhse by striking at the cause. Here's proof of their merit in a Jamestown woman's words Mary A. English, Jamestown, N. D., says: "We value Doan's Kidney Pills more highly than any other remedy. The Qrst time I ever used them was three or four years ago when I was having trouble with my kidneys. My back ached all the time and I was nervous and had headaches. I sent to Smith's Drug store for a supply of Doan's Kidney Pills, and after using, three boxes I was entirely cured."

Marion, an itinerant tailor, appeared before Judge Amidon of the U. S. circuit court and pleaded guilty to a charge of using the mails to defraud. About two years ago Marion wrote to Dunn & Co., giving his present worth at ?12,500. On the strength of his rating with the Dunn Co., various cloth manufacturers .extended him credit and later found the man to be absolutely worthless. 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 e 0 0 0 0 0 o JAMESTOWN COLLEGE NOTES o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o The first social event of the college year will be the general reception to students and faculty under the direction of the two Christian societies, at Sanford hall Friday evening. Football practice has begun vigorously with a husky squad under the leadership of Capt. Graham. The instructor is Coach Haas who comes from Oberlin College, where he made a fine athletic record. He has shown himself a leader at once. Carl Erickson is laid up at Mandan with typhoid fever, but it is hoped the attack will not be severe and he may yet get into the game. Word was received a few days ago that members of the 1913 class who took work in education had been awarded their five year first class certificates. The registration each day has shown an increase over last year. The freshman class is three times as large as that of last year. The organization of classes was changed somewhat and improved on account of {he addition of two new professors. Dr. Roe will have complete charge of Bible work. There are twice as many entries in domestic science as before and the department has been completely reorganized under Miss Edna Lavitz of the, famous Stout school of Menomenie, Wis. A JUDGE'S TALK TO RECKLESS AUTOISTS. A Cincinnati judge recently gave a reckless auto driver who had nearly killed himself and half a dozen other people by losing control of a car and foat driving, a lecture which is worth repeating. The judge said: "Young man, stand up. Tou belong to a class of young maniacs who act as if you didn't have as much sense in your head as an ordinary horse. Who gave you the right to go tearing along the streets at the speed of a railroad car? Who gave you the right to use our streets in such a manner as to constantly endanger people's lives? Who set you down in this community as a complete example of a man driving a dangerous machine without any brains, care or prudence? You are a shame to the town, to the decent father and mother who begot you. We can have some sympathy for a natural born idiot, but we fail utterly when we look upon a man who was deliberately made such with an automobile. I will put you where you will not endanger any more lives for the next three months and assess you the costs of this action." :—o— Barn in rear of Salvation Army hall is now open.
