THE HARVEST IS ON Thousands of Binders Started in the Fields o! Ward County Monday—Cars Will be Scarce —Should Stack Grain When­ ever Possible. Man a farmer started his bin­ der in the harvest field Monday and we might truthfully state that harvest is now on in full blast. By the latter part of the week, every farmer will have some grain ready eut. Some have been at it nearly two weeks. As usual farm hands are scarce and are demanding two and two and a half dollars a day and board. Prices for farm laborers always varv according to the supply and demand. With twen­ ty-five per cent more crops in the county this year than last, many more men will be needed. The season is a little late there­ fore it will behoove the farmer to use every effort to get his grain in shock and even in the stack as early as he can. As usual many of the farmers' wives and daugh­ ters will come to the rescue and help them gather the fruit of their summer's work. While it is not an unusual thine: lor women to ...

Gat ready (or the great­ est harvest North Dakota ever saw. We can supply your needs. NOT READY TO MOURN. •rlda Wu Thinking of Anything But Mourning Garments. The pretty bride met BO many ladies at the reception given by her hus­ band's cousin to introduce her that it was impossible to keep up with them, and so when the hall boy telephoned up to know whether she was at home to Mrs. James or Miss Richards she always said she was, and took it for granted they were family friends. A Mrs. Martin was announced In this way, and little Mrs. Anderson re­ ceived the stranger with a cordial gayety and began to chat to her of teas and matinees. Mrs. Martin was a dismal person in rusty black and did not seem to respond to merriment. The bride racked her brain for conver­ sation and the guest eyed her with growing disfavor. Finally the out­ burst came when Mrs. Anderson said: "I met you at Mrs. Towne's recep­ tion, of course, didn't I? I find it so hard to connect names with faces, but I hope—" ...

BLACK AND THE HERD LAW Thinks There are Not Sufficient Number of Voters Against the Herd Law to Warrant Submit­ ting the Question to the Voters County Commissioner William Black, himself a ranchman, is using his influence as a servant of the public to defeat the wishes of a vast majority of the voters of the county, by objecting to submit the herd law question to a vote of the people at the next fall's election. The commissioner says that he does not believe that many people want the herd law repealed, therefore he does not consider that it is worth while for the county to go to the trou­ ble and expense of submitting the question to a vote of the peo­ ple. Now, really, the onlo extra expense that the county will have to stand is the eight or ten thousand ballots that will have to be used, and if Mr. Black thinks that Ward county is too poor to pay for them, the Independent will be glad to make the county a presen...

fWMtromiiitsvii mrnnrnmui Vt or THE QUALITY Diamonds by Weight The best way to sell diamonds is by weight. And that's the way we sell ours—excepting the small ones. We al­ ways show a nice selection of loose diamonds varying in size from to Z% carats. After selecting the diamond that you like we put it on the scales and weigh it up. You can see for yourself just how much it weighs. Where you buy diamonds ready mounted you're apt to pay for a larger dia­ mond than you really get, because its very easy to say a dia­ mond is carat larger than it really is, and when it is ready mounted it is easier to conceal any flaws in the stone. We carry a complete line of diamond mountings and are at all times prepared to do diamond work. We mount all our own diamonds in our own work shop. At present we have a fine selection of small diamonds ready mounted varying in price from $12.50 to $75.00 each. A glance at our diamond stock will convince you that we are leaders in our line. Because we have th...

$"1 I S SUSPICIOUS CIRCUMSTANCE IN DISAPPEARANCE Of Farmer Bishop---Had Quar­ reled with Wife and Stepson Just Before He Left*"Body Could Have Been Thrown in Deep Water Holes. As the weeks pass by, the mys­ terious disappearance of Mr. Bishop, who lived oil the Murphy farm three miles down the river, puzzles our authorities. The In­ dependent was informed that Mri. Bishop told a neighbor that just prior to his disappear­ ance, he had been quarreling with her, and that nei son Roy interferred and had raised a chair with which to strike his step-father on the head. Mrs. Bishop declares that she placed her hands over her hus­ band's head to shield him, but does not state whether the boy struck the husband or not. She states, however, that Bis­ hop started for Minot, intending to leave, and t-liat she followed a distance, remonstrating with him trying: to induce him to re­ main. She states that he would not listen to her. Bishop wore his old clothes and Mrs. Bishop states that he did no...

THE STOCK SITUATION The Price of Cattle is So Low in the Twin Cities That Ranch­ ers Refuse to Ship—Trusts Seem to Control Business Hides High—Hogs Big Price. The Ward county stock raisers have done little or no shipping up to date, and it is well that they have not. The price of cattle is exceedingly low in the Twin Cities and just as low in Chicago. The trusts seem to be running the business to their own satisfaction and are offer­ ing the cattlemen any old price for their stock. When cattle are but a cent and a half and two cents a pound in the citv, its better to sell to your butcher at two cents a pound. One rancher remarked that with hides worth eleven and twelve cents a pound, it_ will al­ most pay him to kill his cattle for their hides which will bring seven or eight dollars. Let a rancher go to St. Faul with a bunch of cattle and refuse to sell for what he is offered. The minute he leaves for Chicago with his cattle, word is sent on ahead that he is coming. He is offered ju...

THE VOLUME 5* NUMBER a3. THRESHER COMMITS TERRIBLE CRIME M. W. Stevens, a Thresher, Rapes Young Woman Whom He Hired as Cook—Fiend in Bound Over to District Court. M. W. Stevens, charged with rape, was given a hearing Tues­ day afternoon and bound over to the district court under $1,000 bonds, which he failed to fur­ nish. The being was remanded to the county jail. Stevens, according to his com­ panion, Mr. Tooev, is guilty of one of the most heinous crimes and hanging is too good for the fellow if Tooey's story and that of his alleged victim are true. The girl, who is but 23 years old, is a hard working young woman and hired to Stevens, a big burly fellow to cook for his threshing crew at $2.50 per day. Stevens represented that he owned a machine north of town. Tooey and Stevens with the young woman started northwest from this city and when about five miles out, Stevens halted the horse at some hay stacks and performed the terrible deed. Stevens had no machine, in fact he is nothing...

Nevertheless, farms have decreased in value from approxi­ mately $110 an acre to $85 and even lower. This has occurred within the last six years. A contemporary in calling attention to this almost unparal­ leled instance, points to the fact that a country town in the same district, has lost in population during the same period. The pop­ ulation has not only decreased but business has suffered most se­ verely during what has been elsewhere the most prosperous decade any country has ever enjoyed. The contemporary in noting this parallel decline of town and farm declares: "Investigation shows that this city was formerly a prosperous township, convenient and desirable for both business and social purposes. The large mail ...
