*y bti"rf W. Ii. KELLOGG, Publisher. JAMESTOWN, DAKOTA. The United States, British and Canadian governments unite in deny­ ing that a new treaty has been con­ cluded in regard to fishery privileges and reciprocal trade aflecting this country and the dominion. The statement is published in Paris that a syndicate of bankers in thai city and Berlin have subscribed $120, 000,000 for the construction of a sys­ tem of railroads in the region between the Black Sea and the Persian Gulf. That would mean that the Garden ol Eden was to be crossed by a railroad. George Darwin, the eminent profes­ sor of astronomy at Cambridge Uni­ versity, gives it as his opinion that there are no grounds for supposing that an araa of earthquakes is begin­ ning in the southern states. He ex­ presses the opinion that it is an isolat­ ed settlement of the earth's crust, but declares that all talk of the causes ol earthquakes is in the highest degree speculative.

A ft §f s. THE DRUNKARD'S WIFE. The cold winds swept, the mountain's hoipht, And pathless was the dreary wild, And 'mid the cheerless hours of night A mother wonderod with her child. As through the drifting snows she pressed, The babe was sleeping on her breast. And colder still the winds did blow, And darker hours of night came on, And deeper grew the drifts of snow Her limbs were chilled, her strength was gone "Oh God!" she cried, in accents wild, "III must perish save my child." She stripped her mantle from her breast, And bared her bosom to the storm And round the child she wrapped the vest, And smiled to think the babe was warm. With one cold kiss, one tear she shed, And sank upon a snowy bed. At dawn a traveler passed by She lay beneath a snowy vail The frost of death was in her eye, Her cheek was cold and hard and pale. He moved the robe from off the child The baba looked up and sweetly smiled. IN A GARBET. When Old squire Marcy died, having lived twenty years beyond his allo...
