/S'-e1 r* §*~-r f4, 'fc*. I 1 '£lte ^tjevt. W. 11. KELLOGG, Publisher, JAMESTOWN, DAKOTA. The corn crop for this year ia estl» mated by the grain buyers at Cincin­ nati and Chicago at 1,586,000,000 bushels, or 350,000,000 bushels less than last year. The great reduction is in Ohio, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska and Kansas, these states showing a decrease of over 300,000, •000 bushels. The rapidity with which timber con« sumption is going on is well illustrat­ ed by the fact that the railways ot the country are requiring this year 80,000,000 ties for repairs alone. These are all from comparatively young trees. Bailway ties only last from one-fourth to one-tenth or the time required to grow them. The revenues of the government con tinue to exceed by a large amount the current expenditures, and there is every reason to expect a continuance of the present policy of redeeming the 3 per cent, loan as rapidly as possible The receipts since Sept. 1 aggregate about $22,000,000, while th...

ONLY A BUTTON. A cheerful south room, with a bay window full of blossoming plants, a bright fire glowing behind a burnished grate, a carpet whose soft, velvety pile was shaded in blue and wood colors, to correspond with the damask-cov "red furniture, and a little gilded clock, which had just struck 9 at night—all these things met Mrs. Chickerly's eye as she laid down her book and yawned as widely as her ripe cherry of a mouth would admit. She was a plump, fair-faced young natron of some four or five and twenty with bright auburn hair, soft Wue eyes, and a complexion whose roses stood in need of no artificial rouge to heighten their charms, while Mer dress of soft crimson merino was exquisitely adapted to her semi-blonde style. "Fanny," said Mr. Chickerly, look­ ing up from his newspaper, "did you eall on those Carters to-day?" "No, I never thought of it." "And they leave town to-morrow morning and Carter is absurdly sen­ sitive to all slights, fancied or real. Fanny, I desired you t...

1 WHERE IT DOES THE MOST GOOD. Lite. There's a great deal ol bliss in a lingering kiss, And oceans of solid rapture There are lots ot fun in a stolen one— If you are clever about the capture. The cutcst trick in a kiss that's quick Is to put it where it belongs To see that it goes below the nose And knocks at the gate of songs. A kiss that is cold may do for the old, Or pass with a near relation But one like that is a work—that's flat— Of supererogation. If you're going to kiss be sure of this— That the girl has got some heart in her I wouldn't give a darn for the full of a barn Of kisses without a partner. The point of this rhyme is to take your time Kiss slowly, and do it neatly, It you do the thing right and are halfway bright, You can win her sweet heart completely. A FAMILY BOMBSHELL Translated from the French of Victorien Sardou for the Argonaut. I have been recently reminded of an episode of the siege of Paris, which, I flatter myself, reflects no small credit on me. But be n...
