3Jfeje ^Ucrt. KELLOGG & TUCKER, Publishers. JAMESTOWN, DAKOTA. Indications of a great war in Eu­ rope, that may involve half a dozen nations, are said to be accumulating, And that the contest cannot be long delayed. For the first time there will be no "October election" in Ohio. Last year the voters ratified a Constitu­ tional amendment changing the time for the a.nnual State election from Oc­ tober to November. The people of Mundy's Landing, on the Kentucky river, in Woodford county, Ky., are much agitated by mysterious droppings of stones, ap­ parently out of the sky, and falling in­ discriminately upon the just and the unjust. Some of the watering places on the eastern coast have been desolated on account of mosquitoes. The walls of the houses were literally black with insects and the inhabitants were com­ pelled to walk on the beaches or sleep on the sand under nettings. The silicified forest of Arizona, known as Lhalcedony park, covers 1, 000 acres, and consist of fallen tr...

The department of agriculture esti­ mates the total wheat crop o£ the country at 439,000,000 bushels. The record of the late session of Con­ gress fills 8,530 pages, which is 1,500 pages more than any one session ever occupied before. In a short time, one, two, and five dollar silver certificates will be in cir­ culation, the amendment to that et fect in the sundry civil appropriation bill having become a law. These small bills will be a great convenience,owing to the growing scarcity of greenbacks of small denominations. De. Lesseps has raised 450,000,000 francs by the new loan, in Paris alone, to aid in completing the Panama ca­ nal. He wants three times that sum to make success certain.

WINNING THE PRIZE. "I shall go to tho country well armed for conquest, that's certain," laughed Lou Harding, a rich young widow, tossing a pile of dainty laces into tho lap of her paid companion with the in­ junction to "hurry up and get those flounces made as soon as possible." "I've learned that Hugh Mansfield is to spend part of the summer there, she went on, turning again to the friend who had run in to discuss with her their plans for the season, "and you know, Fannie, what a magnificent catch he is. So I warn you in time that we shall be deadly rivals, for of course you will try as hard as any of us to land the big fish." "Oh, I yield to the inevitable at the very outset," returned Fannie Reming­ ton, banteringly "for what earthly ehance will my poor beauty have against your gold?" And there was just a sufficient shade of truth in the jesting inquiry to make Mrs. Harding wince a little, for there was no deny­ ing that her friend Fannie had, by far, the advantage in the way of ...

-.mm ,i THE SUBRET DOOR. & It was a beautiful and still evening toward the end of summer, when in the course of my wanderings about the ancient city I entered the quiet ftnd solitary close of the gray cathedral. The rooks were gathering in the old elms which stood around. A ruddy light wrapped the great gray towers which rose far up into the evening air. The sounds from with out came faintly and at intervals to ^the ear as I walked slowly across the ',close toward the low, wide steps which ^ascended and were lost in the shadow of the noble porch. On reaching the great doqr of the i-cathedr&l I found it closed. But in L^the centre of this there was an l' pother smaller door, which still stood 'open^and here a party of visitors, to whom I was a stranger, were endeavor ingto persuade the ancient verger that the hour was not yet too late to per­ mit them to inspect the interior. It so happened that just as I came up sthey succeeded in overcoming his hesi­ tation, and he turned t...
