ICIRCULATION «V 2,400 1 ,/' I fy.' SL k: BLACK RUST DOING DAMAGE TO WHEAT Eastern North Dakota, Western Minnesota and South Dakota is Covered With Rust—Ward County and Western North Dakota do not Suffer* Word comes from the eastern part of the state that black rust is doing' a great deal of damage to the wheat, and the crop will not be nearly as large as was figured upon during the early part of the season. The preval­ ence of the rust will hasten the harvest. The wheat which has rust might just as well be cut now as later, as it will never de­ velop more. The rust prevails in Minnesota, and South Dakota as well. The wet weather per­ haps caused the germs to thrive better than usual. In Ward county we have heard of plaints from rust and the chances are that the rust will never touch E. Ashley Miers in Jail. It will be of interest to many to know that Ashley Miers, a former Minot banker, is in jail at Ellensberry, Wash., for issuing 'drafts on one of his banks in Washington, where he...

He reports the grain looking very well at all of the above named places, but believes that Chas. Tatman should wear the blue ribbon for neat crops. There is not a weed to be seen in his farm.

To ruing, after a few weeks of rest has come to life. The crops were never so „ood as this season and the farmers are in good spirits. That blue feeling has left them and they have formul­ ated plans for great improve­ ments the coming fall. Amund Stakston is building a large granary. He has a very large crop which will yield exceedingly well. By the way, the farmers generally will thresh from the nhock instead of from the stack as in former years, as they realize that there is so much *rain that thev would never get it stacked with the present help. The Torn ing farmers are planning on breaking out all their farms the coming year, as they have the horse flesh and will have the feed, something which they have not had since coming to North Dak. Torning is in the heart of the great grain belt of North Dakota and is the only township in Ward county that can boast of two foot soil. The Torning farmers now are not afraid to show their horses without blankets on. Torning will show up two ...

oiiiu. i-- nmwiwii Tolley Wants Public Square. The citizens of Kenmare brot suit against E. C. Tolley, town site owner, for recovery of the block in the center of that city known as the public square, which the citizens understood was given to them by Mr. Tolley. He claims however that he had no intentions of giving the block to the city, but allowed the peo­ ple to use it for a park. Quite a nnmber from Kenmare were here as witnesses. As Judge Palda is interested in the case, Judge Cowan was present and conduct­ ed the trial in Palda's chambers. There was no writing of any kind between Tolley and the citizens, tho a number state that Tolley remarked that he would donate the square to the city in order to sell lots to advantage on all sides of it. The citizens claim that now that the lots have become valu­ able, Tolley wishes to sell them for building purposes. Tolley thinks it is a little like the old Democratic platform, sixteen to one. Cowan did not arrive at any conclusion, but ...
