A new railroad is being built north from Bismarck, North Dakota, to tap some of the rich agricultural lands of the Missouri valley. It will run north to Washburn and Coal Harbor, where it will tap the extensive coal deposits there,. A vast area of excellent farming and grazing land will be opened up, and these lands have just been put on the market at from four to seven dollars per acre. This railroad Is being built by Senator Washburn and next year when the Soo railroad Is built into Bismarck it will become part of the system, It is being built under the name of Bismarck, Washburn and Ft, Buford railroad, and Senator Washburn has bought up a large tract of land and placed it on the market. There is a great rush of settlers to North Dakota this year, and although this land has only been on the market about two weeks, already a large share of U 1s taken, The soil is fine, a black loam with a clay sub-soil and all inlaid with coal at a depth of from 12 to 14 feet which crops tout at-the lakes and rivers. The actual settler who wants a good home for a very little, money and wishes to engage in mixed farming cannot do better than to buy some of this land in the celebrated Missouri valley.

It will be notable among the opening addresses of the campaign. The meeting' will be held in the opera house and seats will be put on the stage to accommodate a big crowd. The band will give a street parade, and every arrangement will be made for the comfort of all who come. Congressman Cousins has never spoken in Kossuth county.
