EUROPE'S BIG DROUGHT. Behold what they are doing across the water. The Czar of Russia has made Sahara look like a clover patch, while Lloyd-George*s latest contribution causes the assertions and aservations of the Anti-Saloon League's fly ing squadron to listen like the rustle of September winds among dry leaves. Without qualm or qualification he classes King Alcohol with Kaiser William and old Franz-Joseph. "England," says he, "is fighting three enemies, Germany, Austria and drink, but the worst of these is drink." The merchants of His Britannic Majesty's kingdom will seal their wine cellars, and there will, if the little Welshman hath his way, be a remarkable dryness over all the land. How dull London would seem with the lights out and the barmaids all at work in the arsenals, and how colorless Paris will appear with nothing to drink but the Seine. If Europe is dry it will be sober, and sober folks won't carry on such a useless quarrel for any great length of time. Peace must be n...

Cato Sells, the Indian commissioner, is a strong believer in educating the red man to be self-supporting. And lie is thorough ly making good, as anybody may see who calls at one of the most interesting exhibits on the State Fair grounds. In a tent under the orders of Commission er Sells, an exhibit lias been collected from five or six reservations. The result is some thing that many western people who are pretty conversant with Indians are hardly able to believe. These people have grown grain, grasses and fruit which have won prizes in competion with the entire state. Peaches Are Winners.

Address all communications to RED LAKE NEWS, Red Lake, Minn. The Red Lake Indians are to be congratu lated upon the success of their Third Annual Fair. Progress and a man's ability must be judged largely through his work. A little over three years ago a fair at the Red Lake agency was unthought of, and when first broached was met with a great deal of op position, skepticism, etc. It is noted with few exceptions that the Indian men who took hold of this work in its beginning have stayed A N ith it and taken an active promin ent part in each year's exhibits. Despite the efforts of a few disgruntled persons who, prompted by their own failures tried to disuade and discourage other members of the tribe from giving their co-operat...

"HAMPTON'S WORK FOR THE INDIANS. Review By MABEL E. HODGE. Miss Caroline W. Andrus, who is in charge of Indian Records at Hampton Institute, has written a splendid article which is an effective presentation of "Hampton's work for the Indians." This article vividly pictures the strug gles of the Red Man through many dis coiiragements and drawbacks, since his ad mission to Hampton Institute in 1878, which was really the beginning of any or ganized effort at Indian education. It out lines the almost overpowering obstacles that confront the young educated Indians when they return to their home communities to work among their people. It points out the development of strong character in Indian boys and girls who are brave enough to work their own way through school after the Government aid has been taken away from them. It shows, in a final encouraging summary, the wonderful advance the race has made in education and civilization even with so many odds against it. A member of the Board of...

fe FEDERAL COURT WEEK. This morning the federal court convenes in Missoula with its usual but diminishing grist of bootlegging eases from the old Flat head reservation country Steadily and with unerring certainty the federal officials have enforced the laws prohibiting the in troduction of intoxicating liquors into In dian country and forbiddwg. the traffic with Indian wards of th#*-federal govern ment. It is slowly dawning upon some people that when Uncle Sam enacts a statute he also intends to see that it is strictly en forced. It may take several short courses at Leavenworth to fully illustrate the point but in the end the lesson will be well learned. A very great majority of the people of the west side counties are of the belief that they owe a lasting debt of gratitude to Judge llourquin, Major Morgan and Special Agent Glenn for their unswerving devotion to duty in the enforcement of the federal liquor laws in this vicinity.The Missou lian, Missoula, Mont.

man. A FAITHFUL INDIAN SCOUT. The Fort Hall Indian Reservation, Idaho, possesses a picturesque character in the per son of "Captain" Jack Hurley, a full-blood member of the Shoshone tribe of Indians, who, tradition says, has lived more than his threescore years and ten. Hurley himself does not know his exact age and, to quote him, "White man don't know either." In the old days when the Indians of the Northwest were not at all friendly toward the invasion of the white man, Jack Hurley and a few other Indians proved, both by word and deed, to be the white man's friends. Hurley served as a scout under General O. O. Howard, and during the Nez Perce In dian war in the year 1877 did valiant service, receiving for his efforts a bullet through the hand. The wound did not prove a serious one and General Howard was so much pleased with the conduct of Hurley that lat er he gave him a letter testifying to his worth and good character. "Captain" Jack also acted in the capacity of scout for the l...

I am greatly pleased to participate in this great conference of employees, returned students and others whom I may properly assume are deeply interested in Indian wel fare. For a long time I have desired to visit the Indians of the Southwest that I might closely study their problems. I have spent the last several weeks among the Apaches, Pimas, Papagoes, and the Indians along the Colorado River. About a week of this time was given to the Papago country. For many reasons I am convinced that the Pa pago Indians are among the most deserving of any people I have ever known. Their home for more than two hundred years has been in the dryest desert of the United States. No branch of the Caucasian race could exist under such conditions, and I doubt if there is anot...

In a recent decision the Supreme Court of Oklahoma has upheld in a very positive manner the Rules of Probate Proceedure promulgated July 15, 1911, to regulate pro bate practice in the various courts of the state. The court held, in the case of Oklahoma vs. Knight, upon application for a writ of mandamus, that the regulations have the force of law and cannot be waived by county judges also that the United States, as guardian of the Indians, has the right, through its probate attorneys, to notice of the hearings.

IVE PAGfc T/// SELECTING AND STORING OF SEED CORN. In order that one may increase the yield of his corn without increasing the cost of production he must have the knowledge of how to select and store his seed. It is better to select ones own seed corn from his own field than it is to send away and buy it from some seed house, because it takes at least two years for the corn to become adapt ed to the change in climate and soil condi tions. If one has to buy seed it is best to buy some variety that has been successfully grown in his locality and buy it as near home as possible. It is best to determine the amount of ground one intends to plant the next season, and then select twice the amount of seed that he wants, because when tested some of the ears may prove to be of low germinating power. It takes about six quarts or thirty ears of good corn to plant one acre. If one intend ed to plant five acres he had best select about three hundred ears. Seed corn should be selected early so as ...

GREAT WORK OF INDIAN SCHOOLS IS WELL SHOWN AT STATE FAIR Among the infinite variety of remarkable features of New Mexico's biggest and best state fair it is safe to say that none is more remarkable, and certainly none more in teresting than the big Indian display gather ed by Superintendent Reuben Periy, of the Albuquerque Indian school, the chaiiiuaii of the committee having this branch of the fair in charge. There is only one complaint to be made of the Indian display, and that is that tlieie is not enough space to show all that there is to be shown. Like practically every other branch of the state fair A\ork, this de partment outgrew all expectations by the time for the fair to open, and when it as realized how big this feature was to be it was too late to increase the space to be al lotted for it. The fair managment knew that it was to have a big' and good Indian ex hibit, but it didn't realize how big and how good it was going to be. Those who still think of the Indian as an il...
