BISMARCK. N. D., Sept. 5. (Spe

fussing around with their wheat and
such fool things to pay any attention
to politics." complained a digusted of
ficeholder here the other day, and yet
the air at that very moment was full of
The Republican state central com

was having a lively row In an effort
to adopt a platform and the Bull
Moosers were chasing desperately
around the state, trying to get enough
signatures to place their candidates'
names on the ballots at the November
Politics was everywhere in the air.
The streets and the hotels were filled
with politicians. Political talk was
heard on every side.
But the politicians complained of a
quiet year. Despite the fact that a
Governor, a United States Senator and
various state officers are to be elected
and the woman's suffrage question de
cided, it is a quiet year that is, it Is
quiet for North Dakota.
Politics Chief Industry
If there is one state in the Union
where politics may be classed as one
of the chief industries that state is
North Dakota. A good many of its
citizens work at it for a living and the
rest of the population uses it for a di
version at least 62 weeks in the year.
But with wheat selling around $1.25
a bushel the farmers and this Includes
most of the population have found a
more profitable diversion, for the time
being at least.
So far as the actual situation is con
cerned, however, it is simple enough.
L. B. Hanna, the present Republican
Governor, and A. J. Gronna, United
States Senator and a Republican of the
La Follette type, have been renomi
nated and the chances favor their elec
tion In November.
Governor Hanna is serving his first
term and was the first Republican Gov
ernor in nearly a decade.
The result at the primaries, by the
way, also went far to show that North
Dakota is beginning to depart some
what from the radical tendencies that
have characterized its attitude in re
l .-i Follette Man Loses.
Hanna's principal opponent was U. L.
Burdick, leader of the so-called La Fol
lette wing of the Republican party. He
was defeated by a vote of nearly 2 to 1.
The Republican opposition to Sena
tor Gronna did not develop serious
proportions. His most formidable op
ponent was J. H. Worst, president of
the State Agricultural College. The
other was Andrew Miller, the present
Worst was supposed to represent the
farmers, although it is evident that he
did not get the solid farmer vote, as
Gronna defeated him about 28.000 to
18,000. The conduct of the State Ag
ricultural College played a part in
Worst's candidacy. It seems that E.
F. Ladd, dean of the chemistry depart
ment, has aroused much antagonism
among merchants and others through
his activity In demanding a strict en
forcement of the pure food laws: that
H. J. Bolley. dean of the biology and
plant pathology, has advised farmers
to rotate their crops Instead of grow
ing flax too many consecutive years and
that this has hurt the sale of some real
estate, while L. Van Ness, secretary of
the Livestock Sanitary Board, has
made enemies among certain other In
terests by enforcing the sanitary live
"Big: Business" Accused.
Certain farmers declare that the "big
business" interests want these three
officials ousted. A meeting of farm

urged to run as the "farmers' candi
date." Gronna Is a merchant. Senator

Some of the corps were Blnglng sen

There is no room in the German

I saw a young soldier who looked

the march discipline are evidently
accepted as natural and necessary.
The equipment of the German army
Is wonderfully complete. Huge motor
lorries stretched for miles and miles,
and came along after the troops at a

It Is predicted now that he will be

where he owns a bank. He is reputed
to be wealthy.

native of New England and at present
Is serving his third term In Congress.
He is on the ways and means commit

he defeated James T. McCleary, a Re
publican, who had held the seat for
many yeara The district is strongly
Republican, but Scott Is popular and
has twice been re-elected, each time
with a handsome majority. He is a
lawyer and a former school teacher.
The St Paul Pioneer Press and Dis
patch, which normally are among the
leading Republican organs in the state,
are not expected to give much support
to Lee. It is probable that they will
remain neutral, and before the eleotion
takes place may lean a little toward
spectator of an engagement between
French and German- troops. The
French were strongly intrenched, and
the French artillery occupied a favor
able position under cover, but it was
a good line of attack. The Germans
advanced; the French artillery found
the range and shelled them. I saw the

throw, but more gray-green figures
emerged from the rear, and the ad
The Germans went forward at the
double quick. The French artillery
continued to be destructive, but the
onward rush was too rapid for any
such means to stop.
The French infantry poured volley

The Germans were advancing with
about one yard distance between the

mans of the second line were Just
behind those of the first, so that as

The Germans of the third line were

JEWS AT FRONT IN WAR
An Important part In the great

Jews of the warring nations, of
whom It has been estimated as many
as 338,000 are engaged as soldiers In
the various armies now In the field. .
The war will affect Jews especially
In so far as concerns the operations
between the German and Russian
troops on the czar's western border
land and in East Prussia At these
borders Is to be found the thickest
Jewish population in the world. More
than half of the 12,000,000 Jews In'
the world live In Russia. Gallcla. in
the east ot Austria, and Poland, are
also heavily settled by Jews.

State-wide prohibition is not an is

voters. Whether it Is submitted in
precinct units, ward sinits or county
units. Is Immaterial, he is reported to
have said. Anyway, the "wet" people
have construed that utterance as fav
orable to the county option measure
and probably will oppose him.
Winfleld Scott Hammond, the Demo
cratic nominee for Governor, thus far
has refrained from saying Just how he
stands on the question. It is under
stood that he will stay on the fence
until after the election. However, it
is probable that he will receive the
support of the liberal element.
But the race for the Governorship
sinks into insignificance when com
pared to the legislative contests
throughout the state.

state is divided into 67 Senatorial ais

hold office can become a canaiaate tor

a nAmiiiar result of the recent prl
maries was that in almost every dis

a "wet" man, while the other is "dry."

Thanks to a remarkable new scientific dis

stroke of modern chemistry Is called Sargol

stomach and intestines to literally soak up
the fattening elements of your food and pass
them into the blood, where they are carried
to every starved, broken-down cell and tissue
of your body. You can readily picture the
result when this amazing transformation has
taken place and you notice how your cheeks

COMET IS WITH WAR
Sky Wanderer Is Approaching
Near Earth's Orbit.
NAKED EYE MAY SOON SEE
Superstitions May Worry, as Similar
Visits Have Always Been at
Times When Disastrous
Events Taking Place.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 19. The world
has Its cornet. During- all the great
wars of the world's history, comets
have flamed across the sky. Bursting
into the ken of mankind, this new wan
derer from the mystery at the back ot
the stars is looked upon by the super
stitious as a portent and harbinger of
earthwide battle and disaster.
Paul T. Delevan, an astronomer, has
the honor of having his name attached
to the free-lance of the skies, which
will go down in history and science as
the comet of the war of 1914. Al
though when Delevan dlacovered hla
Morrison Street at Fourth
mt fmm the observatory of La
Plata la the Argentine Republlo eight
months ago there was no war on the
horizon, and no sign of great trouble,
the traveling body has been steadily
growing brighter, and it will become
visible to the naked eye very shortly,
reaching Its greatest brilliancy in the
course of the present war.
Superstitious Hay Worry.
Superstitious people might find much
in the beginning of the great struggle
te oonvtnce them that war Is a sin. and
that Its makers are frowned on by Qod.
On August 19. Pope Plus X., head of
the Roman Catholic Church, died, the
direct result of worrlment over the
great slaughter. On August 21 there
was an eclipse of the sun, total over
a part of Russia and other European
territory where war is raging. The
coming of a great comet might, by the
ignorant, be construed as an omen.
When Delevan first saw the comet,
on December 17, 1913. it was 870,000.
000 miles from the sun and was not
clear even with the telescope. At pres
ent It is about 90,000,000 miles from the
sun, and may be seen with opera
glasses in the northeast part of the
sky, late at night and early in the
morning. Scientists have said that the
Delevan comet will be visible with tel
escopes for a period stretching over
about six years.
It will come nearest to the earth in
October, when it will be not more than
147.000,000 miles from the orbit of this
During the Franco-Prussian war,
which is vividly recalled by the war
now raging, the comet Tempel II was
visible, and attracted much attention
as a "war comet." Olber's comet was
the one visible when Napoleon met his

the Japanese-Russian war. Brooa
