you an account of my trip to Montana came over the Pennsylvania to Chicago from there to St Paul over the Burlington then took the for Sentinel Butte North Dakota and from there to this point I had a very pleasant trip all the way partic ularly interesting from the time struck Dakota and the vast grain fields The ground is perfectly level and one can see for miles thirtY1jthreshers IItheeastern North Dakota and west ern Minnesota but I find land being broken up everywhere which shows that the people are bound to make this a great agri cultural State as well as North and South Dakota The crops here are very much better than in eastern Dakota The grain is the best I ever saw Oats will yield from 60 to 100 bushels per acre wheat from 20 to 40 bush els and potatoes from 150 to 200 bushels per acre This country seems to grow almost everything that is grown on a farm any where Alfalfa which is the greatest grass crop inthe West oes very well here and will cut from 3 to 4 tons per acre of ex cellent hay Cattle from the wildranges often top the market in Chicago A great many horses are raised here also on the open ranges all the year I find that the farmers from the cornbelt States are mov ing here rapidly taking up this free land which they tell me duces more and better crops than the highpriced farms of Iowa or Illinois Everybody seems to like the climate no consumption not microbe to be found and the physician here is starving I have not seen a graveyard here Wibaux is a nice little town of about 700 inhabitants on the Big Beaver a tributary of the Missouri rwv

1 4 II TRADE UNIONISM I 1 r Its Methods and Its Goal Ii 1 f l T lJHE trade union enables the fair emIployer who like the fair predominatesto estimate his labor on a living basis This system is a good deal preferable to figuring on what his unfair competitor can pro cure his cheapest help for Not only that but it is a protection for the mer chant It enables the trade unionist to live as becomes an American cltl zen1and has a powerful influence in roc fair compensation for the in diyjdjl a whqsfl pqn glence will not permit hfm to Join arij combination In this free competitive age Again the union headquarters act as a clearing house for the employer It is con venient to send there for additional help The trade union is not flawless by any means It Is a good deal easier to tear down than to build up but the latter course applied with intelligence to the labor movement will overcome many of its deficiencies The gains are greater than the losses While the dominant trait of human nature is selfishness just so long will we find both sides endeavoring to get the best of the Industrial situation The trade union has come to stay It is a natural outgrowth of presentday conditions Aim of the Future IwHAT has been accomplished The history of the labor movement during the last quarter of a century parallels In action and results the noblest of all permanent organizations that grandest of human achievements our republic the United States of America It has by the unselfish honest energetic effort of her leaders the stability and fundamental right eousness of her cause destroyed the barriers of Ignorance and disdain the Injustice of prejudiced critics and has made the great mass of the people be lievers In tho sincerity and stability of Its principles What has the future in store It the history of the past acts as the guide for the future and I know of no bet ter guide than the lamp of experience the results to be accomplished can not but accord and merit a proper position in the progress and prosper ity of our country and be thV factor for the preservation of the rights and peIeachievements of the past when the impartial Verdict of the great events Is rendered the shape of its efforts weighed in the balance will be no mean proportion of the whole Determination of public issues in the referendum of public opinion is the aim of the futurePeter W Collins President of

among unionists than ever before Perhaps the great est thing accomplished Is the in creased morals of the whple body of unionists perhaps It Is a knowledge of increased rower and responsibility The greatest economic thing a eorn pushed has been the reduction of the hours of labor to millions of persons enriching and lengthening the life of unionists and benefiting the whole communityThe step

eightthir ty oclock in the evening of Aug 14 1908 the spirit of little Geor gie Margaret threeyearold daughter of Robert and Lucy Harper Whaley went to be with God On Monday evening before 1r when the old family horse was fed she thought to do him a kindness by giving him an extra ear of corn but he mistaking a little friend for an enemy struck her a cruel blow from which she did not rally though all was done that medical skill could suggest- or loving hands contrive For only three short years she hadI brightened and blessed the home She was the first baby to come to it and when she came she laid holdofthe heartstrings of moth er and father The hold became firmer and the entwining affection bound them closer every day They looked on the unfolding bud nor dreamed that the parting was so near How could they when the vivacious prattle filled all her waking hours But suddenly a cry of pain announced that some thing was wrong and the fatal blow had been struck A few days of suffering and she slipped away to be with the angels At eleven oclock Sunday morning Aug 16 surrounded by a great concourse of sympathizing friends a short funeral service EdIwardCemeteryI and we laid her away the resurrection She has only gone on before the old affection entwined in the hearts of mother and father is there still She is theirs to love though they cannot see her bright face nor hear her merry prattle The response to their love does not reach them but since she lives in the land of love she loves still Love spans the space between earth and sky and lures on to a better and brighter world It
