k.* -'iv d^\" l*s-v TWVRSJ'M •if HER FAIR FALSE FACE. It all comes back to me now, the ut­ ter misery and despair tliat came to me when I knew my darling was false to me —false to every vovc. When I think even now of that one great sorrow of my life, and of the woe most bitter the woman I loved brought to me—the woman whose false love made me what I am to-day—master of the stateliest home, owner of almost -countless wealth, but, alas! wifeless and -childless, a lonely, gloomy man. I will tell you my story, and the story •of others as well, but I must tell it in "my own. way, so I will begin at the be­ ginning I was only 25 when I first met Arelie 'Cameron, and she was then a beautiful girl of 18—a simple, gentle girl, I be­ lieved, who knew nothing of vanity or ambition, or anything that women of the world hold dear. I was naturally romatic, and like the t'Lord of Rosna," my greatest ambition "was to be loved for myself alone, not that I had very much to tempt a woman with, but I wa...

\, i, ..:i i, 1 N r- '."• !U:, 1 THE LESSON OF THE STRIKE. The circumstances surrounding and the condition of a (lairs accompanying the present dislurbances in the South­ west seem to point prominently to one important fact, which most writers ap­ pear to have overlooked, and which those having in charge the manage­ ment of large corporate interests would do well to recognize more distinctly, viz., that there lias not existed in the past that cordial and close relation be­ tween employer smd employe so neces­ sary to insure a proper understanding and acknowledgment of the rights of ciieli. There has not been so much a disposition on either side to entirely ignore the rights of the other, but what has been lacking is that nice discern­ ment so essential to a proper adjust­ ment of those rights. Each side ap­ parently needs to be educated up to the standard of what constitutes a reason­ able demand. It is generally through want of comprehension, or a stubborn indisposition, too often ...

THE SOUTH. My (freat-souled woman soon to rise C". And tip-toe up and loose her hair— Tip-toe and take from all the skies God's stars and glorious moon to wear. The broad magnolia's blooms are white, Her blooms are large, as if the moon Had lost'her way some lazy nitrht And lodged there till the afternoon. Oh, vast white bosoms, breathing love, White bosoms of my lady dead, In your white heaven overhead I look, and learn to look above. How soft the moonlight of the South! How sweet the South in sweet moonlight! I want to kiss her warm, sheet mouth As she is sleeping here to-night. How still! I do not hear a mouse, 1 see some bursting buds appear, I hear God in his garden—hear Him trim some flowers for his house. I hear stars singing. And the mouth Of my vast river sings and sings. And pipes on reeds of pleasant things— Of promise, for God's splendid South. —JO.VQLIK MILLER. SUZE ANN. BT JULIA. K. WETHEKILL.

UNDER THE MOON. BT CHAKLES E. WHITNEY. Sitting hero alone, looking over the moonlit waters of Lake Pontchartrain to-night I can not help recalling the poor fellow's pale face and sunken eyes. I have tried again and again to shake oft' the sad impressions this mem­ ory creates, but without avail. For half an hour I have watched those two schooners come slowly into view from out the purple darkness of the distance and gliost-like go sailing by until now they arc mere patches of haze far oil' to the westward. It may be the wave voices as the water plashes against the piles of the wharf, or the faint thrum­ ming of that guitar in one of the fisher­ men's cabins in-sliore that has so vivid­ ly reawakened this sad recollection. That night, too, a rippling sea made derisive music amongst the wharf tim­ bers and somebody was playing a guitar in the distance. We had been boys together, had graduated from the university in the same class, and separated only when he went to France to study med...

The rain interfered somewhat with the outside programme of decoration day ser­ vices Monday, in the morning a large number of children bearing flowers, and the committee appointed for the purpose of decorating the graves, drove to High­ land Home cemctery and paid the willing tribute of remembrance to the few vete­ rans who sleep so well, after life's fitful fever. In the afternoon the G. A. it. post formed at their hall and, escorted by the Light Guards and the school children, citizens, the drum and bugle corps* marched to the armory where the me­ morial exercises were held.

WESTERN LAND FRAUDS. Ninety Per Cent, of the Present ttnd Clnlins Said to be Fraudulent— The Modus Operandi for Secur­ ing Cheap Lands. A Las Vegas, New Mexico, corre­ spondent of The New York Herald writes: A discussion of the question of the set­ tlement of the public domain of the United States is apt to speedily assume a narrow form, and tho subject will naturally be contracted to a particular phase. It is impossible to intelligently consider the subject of tho taking up of the national lands without touching on the violations of the law governing the settlement of the 160 acre plots by in­ dividual settlers. These violations have been frequent, and the results of the frauds have been so injurious to the welfare of honest settlers that the mat­ ter has become one of vital interest to the country at large, as well as to the lawmakers at Washington. Deception, fraud, perjury, and reckless indiffer­ ence to honor, justice, and equity have prevailed in the western country, where des...

£Ite ^Icvt. KELLOGG & TUCKER, Publishers. JAMESTOWN, DAKOTA. The Australian wheat crop this year will be a failure. After deducting the amount required for home consump­ tion, it is estimated that there will be but 36,000 tons for exportation, against 329,000 tons exported last year. Ten thousand bills and resolutions have been introduced into congress during the present session. It will be interesting to know how many will have passed at end of the session. That most of tliebili.-, introduced were for "buncombe," goes without saying. The loss of life in the gale at Kansas City, was apparently due more to the faulty construction and criminal neg­ lect of buildings known to be unsafe than to the exceptional force of the wind, which had noue of the character­ istics of a tornado. Theschoolhouse tower had been twice condemned, and the other wrecked buildings were oi flimsy character, Home rule includes not only the consent of the governed, but their co­ operation.

"This grapevine, which is the pride mul marvel of the neighbor­ hood, traces its origin to a slip brought by Dona Marcelina from a young vine­ yard at San Antonia mission for a horse •vliip, and, though it was nearly wither­ ed from the cffcct of the long journey, she determined to make the trial to plant it.

Tlie Republicans in Dakota arc casting around for a candidate for delegate to congress, and papers all over the territory are bringing out first one man and then another.

One of the first named men who has appeared, is from the lied ltiver valley region, Gen­ eral Hnrrison Allen of Fargo, and Colo­ nel riummcr of tne Caladonia Times, al­ ways to the lore in mutters political, gives the following sketch of the gentle­ man, in a late number of the Times: "Quite a number of newspapers iu dif­ ferent parts of Dakota, have spoken fa­ vorably of making Gen.

"She Comes—and is in man." How can Love leave the true heart? "She is not Love—that can" And when is Love the purest? "Where Self no placu can fill." Where her foundations surest?
