M* 1 x\i It. W. R. KELLOGG, Publisher. JAMESTOWN, DAKOTA. The opinion which has prevailed in »Canada since last spring that a gener­ al election would be ordered in the course of the year is gaining new strength. Harvard College has had a great time celebrating its "quarter milleni um" or 25th birthday.

How many of the manufacturers of butter understand the value of a neat package or know to what extent the package aids in selling the butter? An Ohio manufacturer sends to Elgin for his butter tubs because he finds the package made there very much neater than those made at or near his cream­ eries, and he is sharp enough to know that appearances go a long way in butter "selling, as well as in a good many other things.—Western Agricul­ turist.

Alow, sarcastic laugh came from the depths of the great arm-chair, where Ross Chamberlain was lounging with a newspaper in his hand. "Won't you send me a copy of your new arithmetic when you publish it, Kitty?" he asked, in a bantering tone. "That will do to go with the spectro­ scopic views you told aboutlast even fag." "Well, I wasn't the one who spoke of Dr. Holmes as the author of the *Biglow Papers,' anyway," retorted Kitty, taunted beyond endurance. "Ross Chamberlain, I for one shall be heartily glad when your vacation is over." Ross threw down his paper, straight­ ened himself up, and bent a pair of keen, black eyes searchingly upon her. "You don't mean that, Kitty?" "But I do," answered the girl pas­ sionately. "I have never known so unhappy a time as these last six weeks. I...

A Thanksgiving Out West Chicago News. Ezra had written a letter to the home {oiks, and in it he had complain­ ed that never before had he spent such a weary, lonesome day as this thanks­ giving day had been. Having finished this letter, he sat for along time gaz­ ing idly into the open fire that snap­ ped cinders all over the hejyrthstoue and sent its red forks dancing up the chimney to join the winds that frolick­ ed and gamboled across the Kansas prairies that raw November night. It. had rained hard all day and was -'J ud, although the open fire made every honest effort to be cheerful, Ezra, as lie sat in front of it in the wooden rocker and looked down into the glowing embers, experienced a dreadful feeiinR of loneliness and liomesick- "I'm sick o' Kansas," said Ezra to himself. "Here I've been in thisplaguey country for goin' on a yesw, and— yes, J'm sick of it, powerful sick of it. What a miser'ble thanksgivin' this has been!

W. R. KELLOGG, Publisher. JAMESTOWN, DAKOTA. The demand for black walnut has pretty nearly cleared out this wood in the forests of the North, but almost incredible quantities are said to have been discovered in Tennessee and Ar­ kansas. It also abounds still further South. It is easy to understand the joy of the New York Produce Exchange over the decision that dealing in options is not gambling under the law a contrary decision, if approved by the highest tri­ bunals, would of course virtually kill the business of buying and selling on margins, because it would give the broker no security for the losses he may incur, and would make it entirely a question of his personal honesty whether or not he would turn over to his customer the fruits of a successful investment. The commissioner of agriculture has been notified by Chemist Wi­ ley that by the diffusion process he secured an average of 120 pounds of sugar per ton from eighty-three tons of Louisiana cane. It is claimed that the old ...

•Mtoacmciami WHOSE GHOICSI Bo trie faces are supinely lair. Some sparkling in their splendor: Some aro demure and debonair, And Homo divinely tendor. Bomo win us with ono fatal glance, From eyes too brightly beaming. Somo smile that Hmilo tliat brings a trance, Till life is lost in dreaming. Some flit before us, sweet and gay, To fill our hearts with laughter Then fado as fancies Fade away, And leave no acliings uftor. And some—some faces, sorrow-kissed, When holiest thoughts are thronging, Come back, come always in that midst Of everlasting longing. Bo faces come and faces go Some make existence sweeter And some, they make life sad, we know, Yet being sad, completer.
