I?!** BY~I ABSHALL MoCLUBB. JAMK3TOWN, DAKOTA. The Constitution of Ohio adopted in 1851 provides for biennial sessions. The holding of annual sessions is un constitutional, but the members whip the "devil around the stump" by ad­ journing from one year to another, thus making one long session. Kaiser Wilhelm is not only the old­ est officer in the German army in point of age, but in point of service as well. His commission as Major-Gen eral bears date of March 80, 1818, and he joined the army as an ensign March 22, 1S07. The old soldier is very old and daily growing more fee­ ble. He will scon be mustered out by death. Louis M. Iddings, a young and well known journalist of Ohio, a million­ aire, married the daughter of Josiah Belding,formerly of California—and all the papers are extending to him envious congratulations—but it is a strange thing that the lady is not congratulated upon her good luck in capturing a bright journalist, an exploit that might well satisfy the ambition of a...

•V -'vr DOCTOR (jEOKGE. About the only earthly possession of any value George Hixson had on his twenty-second birthday, was a hand­ some diploma of parchment tied up with a blueribbon. The diploma was from a medical college of very high standing, and George had worked hard and faithfully for long years for that diploma. That he deserved it, made it a valuable possession. He had with it a good deal of capi­ tal in the way of courage, enthusiasm, faith in himself and the world. He was honest, manly and patient, and could begin life at the right end of the ladder. He was so poor that he had to walk part way from the college to his old home, the village of Sharon. The first man he met at the end of his tiresome journey was old Enoch Lampson, a man who had known George from the day of his birth. "How de do, George, how de do? Home again, eh?" was the old man's greeting. "Yes, sir," replied George "home to stay this time." "So yer a tull-fledged pill-maker, an' ready to eo into partnershi...

MATT EILEY. A Onco Active Person Who Shot Ten Men in Ten Minute* Single Handed. An Eastern journal recently pub­ lished an account of the shooting of eight Texans by Matt Riley in Kansas some years ago. The article concluded with the statement that Riley some years after the tragedy described, was attacked with paralysis and died in the Eastern States. Riley did not die in the East, but, on the contrary, is alive and a resident of San Francisco, where he has lived the greatest por­ tion of the time since his celebrated adventures in Kansas caused a sensa­ tion throughout the Southwest. Matt Riley, or Matt Foster—the latter be­ ing his right name—was at the date of the occurrence referred to one of the most noted and desperate of the professional fighters and gamblers of the West. He was about thirty years old and in physique the counter­ part of the redoubtable John L. of Boston. His whole life has been passed in scenes of rough adventure. When a boy he entered the civil war on the ...

*4# ft *£\i& a* $le*rk BYIAKSHALL MOCLUEE. JAMESTOWN, DAKOTA. The Kansas census upon which the legislative apportionment is to be made shows a total population of 1, 268,432, against 995,966 in 1880. The Canadian Pacific railroad is reaching out for connections which will give it direct connections and control of railroads reaching Portland and Boston, thus securing a transconti­ nental route between the seaports for the traffic of the Indies and the North •west. Mrs. Mary Ann Livermore is some­ what discouraged about "progress" in New England, but has strong hopes •of western states settled from New England stock. She thinks that un­ limited suffrage will first be established for women in a western state, proba­ bly in Iowa. It is estimated that the corn crop oi Nebraska will equal 150,000,000 bushels. This enormous product is grown upon what only a few yearg ago was considered a desert. At the pres. •ent price of corn in Chicago this crop would be worth delivered in that city ...

THE SHADOW ON THE WALL. BY AN EX-DETECTIVE. By no means am I a superstitious man, but in the course of my calling as a detectivo I have seen many queer things and have met with more re­ markable adventures than the world would really credit. The particular one I am about to relate has notjiing of the supernatural about it. As a matter of fact, I never had the luck to look on a ghost, except at the theatre. Ghosts to my mind, are unsatisfacto­ ry creatures, whose business is to terri­ fy poor wretches with dreadful warn­ ings of coming misery and misfortune but I do not hesitate to acknowledge that I was once saved by a shadow. That seems strange, and the way in which it happened was stranger still. It was many years ago when I was beginning life, tl^at I was sent to a country village to discover a mysteri­ ous robber who had broken into a church and had stolen some ten pounds In money,besidethesilverplate belong­ ing to the rector. reached the village at sunset.

STRANGE BUT TRCE STOUT. Boston Commonwealth. Many decades ago a vessel from Bos­ ton arrived at a dock in London. Among the hands on board was one named Tudor, a steady, well-looking young man, who acted as sailor. Very early one morning a young, beautiful and decently dressed woman came tripping down to the vessel and in­ quired of Tudor for the captain. She was told he was not risen, but she in­ sisted on seeing him without delay. Tudor called him up, and she address­ ed him with: "Good morning, Captain I have called to see if you will marry me.' "Marry you?"—believing her to be a suspicious character—"leave my vessel instantly, if you know what is for your good/' She next went to the mate and received a similar answer she then went to where Tudor was, be­ ing engaged in handling ship-tacks, and pul* the same question to him. "With all my heart, answered Tudor, in a jocular manner. "Then," said she. "come along with me." Tudor left his work and followed her. By the time the princi...

Ac Hording to its last financial statement the accumulated capital amounts to 128,664,000. The income of the so siety exceeds $4,200,000, of which $1, 055,000 is from interests and the rest from membership dues. About 33 per cent, of the members elect of the next Legislat ure of Massa­ chusetts are lawyers. At the least calculation they will introduce 75 per cent, of the bills and do 90 per cent, of the talking. It is well to have lawyers in a legislative body, Jput they should be honest lawyers, who would scorn to work through legislation to fit cases in process of litigation, which they may have in charge. In 1892, wiil occur the four hun­ dredth anniversary of the discovery of America by Christopher Columbus, and Chicago and St. Louis are quarrel­ ing over which of the two shall have the world's fair in 1S92 in honor of the event.
