|r 1 s4-r THE ALERT. OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AHD COUNTY. The New College. Jamestown college will open the fall t«rm on the 28th of this month. The question naturally arises do the people in (his part of Dakota need such an institu­ tion? All that know the value of a lib­ eral education would certainly give an affirmative answer to this question. It will not be long until Dakota will be one of the states of this great union, and the more thoroughly she now educates her tons and daughters the more conspicuous­ ly shall she figure in the future indus­ tries of our country. The opportunity now presents itself for the people of North Dakota to have a grand institution of learning right in their midst. It earnestly hoped that the people will give their whole hearted support to this new enterprise, and it will not be long until its fruits are apparent to every intelligent citizen. Send your sons and daughters and aid us all you can. Poster's Candidate. 'iThe Foster county convention of repr...

lr iiii^,'x, n$y.' ^.s^wL.1 1 WEEKLY ALERT. Competent Testimony. Some time ago Mr. I) 11, Locke, so well known under the nom de plume of Petroleum V. Nnsby, went to New Or­ leans to investigate the workings of tlie Louisiana State lottery, about which he had heard so much, tie went there pre­ judiced against it, but as will be seen from what he wrote home to his news­ paper, the Toledo Ulade, he fully satis­ fied himself of the honesty aud fair deal­ ing of this world-renowned company. The following is a portion of his letter, and is interesting reading In Europe the lottery is a govern­ ment institution as much as the tax gatherer. Germany, Austria, and Italy all have lotteries that are a part of the governmental system. In Austria loans are contracted, the interest being paid in prizes determined by lot, and almost every Austrian and Italian purchases tickets. The principal is paid by ihegov. rnment at maturity, and the interest is divided among those making the loan. A man simply...

MAKING AN AKMY. Bow Civilians Became Veterans—A Mob •f Patriots—Early MliUkei and How They Were Rectified. N. Y. Tribune.—It required hard arid persistent work to create' the great and well disciplined army that •aved the Union. A recollection of mistakes that were made may prevent their being repeated in a future con­ tingency. At the beginning of the war the army of the Union was practically nothing but a crowd of excited, patri­ otic citizens. It was am army ignor­ ant not of war only but of the com­ monest and most needful knowledge of military life. The officers, as a rule knew no more than the men over which they were to exercise command, and in most cases, they were elected to their office by these very men. It often seemed as if corpulence was the sign of fitness for a commis­ sion. The portly fellows who had been familiar loungers about the doors of the best hotels were unani­ mously chosen to be a Colonel, Lieu­ tenant-Colonel or Major, according to their degrees of.good-l...

•iiiH.^mTTjtoiT"-^ %P^j|i|g|if|f|prpBp^ lr |^H/5 5 1 W. R. KELLOGG, Publisher. JAMESTOWN, DAKOTA. The New York Times says: "New York merchants, jobbers and commis •ion merchants are generally satisfied with the condition of trade. Business is picking up and shows in most cases improvements. Buyers for the fall .trade have been and continue numer­ ous." One of the provisions of the law creating a railroad commission in South Carolina was that the sal­ ary of the commissioners should be paid by the railroad companies. The railroad companies went to the courts to defeat this part of tfie law and the supreme court has decided that the railroads must pay the salaries as re quired. The coating of paraffine given to the Egyptian obelisk in New York Central park a year ago has had little or no perceptible effect in protecting it from the scaling process which excited ap­ prehensions for the safety of the mon­ ument. A careful examination made recently shows that the surface con­ tinues to w...

Railway construction continues at ,an active rate, the returns for the last jtwo months making it certain that ]the total of new lines for the year will 'exceed 6,000 miles. The Courier-Journal observes that ,"the decision of a Kentucky court that a man's sweetheart must return his presents if she doesn't marry him 'will perhaps put a check on those in­ satiate young females who are ready to impoverish every generous, unso­ phisticated lover who happens to fall into their net. A thing with which they circumvent caterpillars in the Boston and New York parks is a belt of iron with a circular trough containing kerosene. p?he iron belt fits around the trunk 'of the tree, and when the climbing caterpillar attempts to pass the Itrough of oil it is overcome by the fumes, and so falls back dead.

THE REASON WHY. Chicago Mail. I! three of the thirty-five years of ohn Harlow's existence could be "otted from his memory he could justly boast of a smooth and happy life. No man to-day, however, is hap­ pier than he. Two things alone make fife dear to him—a wife, one of the sweetest, dearest women that ever drew breath a remunerative law clien­ tage, the result of many years of hard work. Although not a very rich man in the general acceptation of the word, •frill he enjoys the benefits of a good irly income, and everything that tends to the happiness of mankind is realized and appreciated by him. No citizen of the city of is held in higher esteem.
