The new city of Fairbank, on the Mis-

two newspapers and various adjuncts of
civilization.
It is the prospective terminus of the
Redfield and Fairbank extension of the
Chicago and Northwestern Railroad, and
is adnirably situated for future growth.

of immigration is expected in this part of
Dakota, and Fairbank lot-owners will re-
