PLAN U. C. T. HOME FOR AGED.
Spokane , Wash. , March 7. Prelim
Inary plans have been made to estab
llsh a permanent home in Spokane for
indigent commercial travelers. Waiter
tor P. Edris , postmaster at Spokane ,
who was a salesman before he en
tered the government service , several
years ago , is chairman of a committee
of the United Commercial Travelers
having the project in hand. The idea
lias been approved by commercial men
and travelers In Washington , Oregon ,
Idaho , Montana and British Columbia.
Construction work will begin during
the coming summer.
"We arc negotiating for a sitely
tract of land on which to build the
home , " Mr. Edris said in making the
first announcement of the plan. "The
atructure and the grounds will be a
credit to the northwest as well as to
those backing the project. The build
ing scheme will get its start at the
Merchants and Traveling Men's car
nival In the Washington state armory
In Spokane May 1 to C , after which It
Is purposed to begin a canvass among
the traveling men in America In the
various states and provinces.
"There are more than 600.000 travel
ing salesmen in this country and all
are connected with one or more asso
ciations. It will not be a big under
taking to get at least 100,000 to join
this proposition when they know that
by paying $1 a year they will always
have as good a home as they have
been used to , where they will be wel
come and receive the best of attention
should adversity come or life's twi
light begin to fall. To always have
that feeling of security and contribute
a small amount for the comfort of
others is worth many times $1 a year.
Though they never expect to take ad
vantage of what is offered , there are
many men the country over who will
Join with us In this enterprise just to
know that if things go wrong there is
a safe retreat open to them. "

Norfolk Addition lor Jail ?
Madison Chronicle : Thu capacity
of the county Jail Is too small. As
was suggested by the Chronicle some
time ago , there should bo a dwelling
house built for the person who has
charge of the jail Instead of hitvliiit
to live In the Jail. This would glvo
more room In the jail for prisoners.
Or wo need a Norfolk addition built
to the present structure.

Dakota Legislature Quits.
Pierre , S. D. , March 6. The legisla
tive crowd left on the afternoon
trains , rushing for the railway sta
tions as soon as they had taken their
last vote on the general appropriation
bill and leaving the olllccrd and a few
good Matured members to clear up the I
rest of the work and adjourn. With I
its going went the first absolutely *
leaderless body which has over mot
in this state. There was no spokes
man of the administration with a back
ing to push through certain measures ;
there was no party or factional following -
ing which could be depended upon to
follow any leader , and while that was
one of the methods of showing Inde
pendence of "boss rule , " at the same
time It did not tend toward a rushing
There was no great administrative
measure to hold the members together
nor was there any great reform meas
ure before the bodies , unless the Rich
ards primary law could be said to be
such , but that did not require consid
eration. Probably the good roads law
was the law.of most general state-wida
interest enacted. The new railway
code was drawn by the railway com
mission and pushed as its measure ,
while telegraph and telephone taxa
tion has been vitally remodeled.
Among what may be called the prin
cipal bills which went down was the
lailroaci rate law , general game code
with state instead of county deputies ,
the eight-hour and union labor bills ,
which wore pushed by the Black Hills
The railroads have not had to take
the baiting of the session preceding ,
but got a little attention , and the In
surance companies had to take their
share of attention. Among pure food
laws , probably the most Important was
the senate not weight law which went
through the last night.
Former Norfolk Man Missing.
Fremont Herald ! Mrs. Mabel Good
rich is heartbroken over the disappear
ance of her husband , John K. Good
rich. She is employed at the Wol-
worth 10 cent store , having been
obliged to earn a living for herself
and two little children , the husband
not having been heard from in any
manner since last July.
John K. Goodrich was in the em
ploy of the Chicago & Northwestern
railway as baggage agent at Norfolk ,
and afterwards entered the employ of
the International Vending Machine
company as a traveling solicitor , for
the sale of the company's slot
machines. On July 14 , 1910 , Mrs.
Goodrich received a letter from him
it being dated at Austin , Tex. He en
closed a draft for $100 for his wife ,
and told her that ho would bo at
Galveston the following week , when
ho would then write and tell her
when to start for the south , it being
the intention to make Galveston their
home , ills duties requiring him in the
southern territory. From that day
to the present not a word lias been
hoard from , and diligent search has
been made for him by the author
ities through the south and west.
Mrs. Goodrich has fear ho has in
seine manner lost his life , as lie is
a careful man , of excellent habits ,
and lias always boon a devoted hus
band. It was his custom to stop at
the host hotels , his position being
an excellent one , and his trips
necessitated his carrying a consider
able amount of money on his person.
Foul play Is the only thing that can
now bo conjectured , but so far as
police and friends have been able to
ascertain there have been no men
meeting with death In the south , but
what have been fully Identified. The
parents of both Mr. and Mrs. Good
rich live nt Missouri Valley. The
description of John K. Goodrich , in a
circular containing his portrait which
Deputy Sheriff Condlt has sent out
over the country la as follows.

lead to a clew to the husband , whose
absence and alienee renders the wife
