'fi­ fe -?£1' v"1 »V ,rv ITHE ALERT. OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY!AND COUNTY LEGISLATIVE MILL BISMABCK, Feb. 4.—[SpecialJ—This is the twenty-fourth day, "and not a wave of trouble rolled across my peaceful breast," is the sentiment of the legisla *»jr-' today. The only thing of impor­ tance is the joint meeting of the com­ mittee ou warehouses and grain grading held tonight. Neither side of the ques­ tion want the bill in its present shape. The committee adjourned without com­ ing to any understanding. The railroad men were more fortunate than the eleva­ tor companies, who seem to be letting 'things take their own coursc. Farmer Loucks concluded the railroad companies were all right, and will make hi9 fight against the elevators. The next meeting of the warehouse and grain grading com­ mittee will be a lively one. Business has been very quiet both branches. Mr. Shook made quite a speech on the motion to reconsider council bill No. 113 relating to the purchase of session laws from Bowen &a...

Just before the close of the last net Miss Vaughn, the leading lady, suddenly clapped her hands together and shouted "Firt! Fire!" bmoke was then seen coming up through the stage, and the audience, panic-stricken, deserted hats, coats umbrellas aud over­ shoes and rushed for the exits Women screamed and men shouted and the wild est excitement prevailed. Some of the people were trampled upon, but none was ser"ously injured. Miss Ella Fergus son was carried from the place in a faint, end one of the actresses also fainted. John J. Uronm, city editor of the Press, sprang upon the stage and shouted to the frantic audience to sit down, as there was no danger. The cornet player struck up a lively tune, and this had the effect of quieting the people to some extent. The theatre was soon emptied. The fire was in a room uL'der the stage and was doubtless caused ...

Overboard in a Gale. A company of old sea captains were gathered at Linton's grocery awaiting the arrival of the mail during the late storm. The boat was late in starting out that morning, and all knew its ar­ rival would be quite delayed and some time elapse before the mail was ready for distribution, so, adjusting bis quid, one of the captains remark­ ed on the height of the waved then thundering on the beach, which led the conversation into the height of waves off Cape Horn and the Cape of Good Hope. Each one in turn told what he regarded the biggest yarn, when one of the old salts, after making a "dead «hot" into the middle of the spittoon, •aid:— "I saw a wave once off Cape Good Hope. We were a scuddin' before the wind in a heavy gale. I was standin' lift when the ship went off, and I could Bee the next wave as high as the bow lin' crinkle of the topsel."

The drama portrays the sufferings of the only daughter, Edith Harvey, who in opposition to the wishes of her wealthy father, married the man of her own choice, Charles Wilson. Edith is also moved by another suitor, Mr. Tuttle, a wealthy and upright man, whose suit her father favor­ ed.

j, Jffeje is- fi I W. R. KELLOGG, Publisher. JAMESTOWN, DAKOTA. The Dominion parliament has been BOW dissolved and new elections Otdered. The nominations will take place Feb. 15, and the polling on the 22d. The contest is likely to be very bitter while the result is doubtful. Th^ee years ago there were only thwe tobbogan slides in the United rJBtates. Now it is difficult to find a town or village without one. Those Who live on the flat prairies, where "sliding down hill" would be impossi­ ble, have the old-time recreation of those living among the hills, through the tobbogan slide. Tobogganing is regarded as a craze, but it is abetter craze than roller skating and likely to continue longer. The bill to regulate the electoral count is still in the hands of the con­ ference committee of the senate and the house, but it is delayed only for the purpose of making its provisions even more explicit and there is no .question of its passage. The en­ deavor of the conference committee is to g...

HIS FAILURE. A STO R. "Poor Richard lt.oalf! I know now every hope died within his soul." He pushed back the heap of manu­ script before him, as he said this, and, resting his weary head on his hand, sat looking out upon the street. He was "born unto singing," but to­ day he could not utter what heaven had breathed into his soul, for the burthen lay sorely upon him. Lately it had been so, that when the heart chords were swept by the unseen mas­ ter hand, and his soul essayed to sing the refrain, the mellow measures trembled forth, only to falter before the unappreciative, and the golden notes died amid the jeers of the cow­ ardly creatures of spite. Long he sat at his desk, consulting his over burdened heart. Should he go on and be buffeted by ridicule long­ er? He did not know it seemed to be his duty to row against the tide, but oh! it was hard. Some, he was aware, counted it strengthening to genius, to battle and endure, and he envied them. He believed he could battle and do brav...

Were the statement to be made that the Americans are becoming a nation of wine-drinkers, there would doubt­ less be hosts of people ready at a mo­ ment's notice to refute the assertion, and to prove both by observation and figures that it was without foundation. But even casual observers admit, says The New York Commercial Advertiser, that the use of wine among the army of business men who are daily fed in the lower portions of the city ra increasing. The keepers of restaurants say that ful­ ly two-thirds of those paying 85 cents and over for a luncheon drink ale, beer or wine, and that the majority would prefer the latter were they sure that they were furnished with an undrugeed and unadulterated article.

He was a bright, handsome young fellow of perhaps five and twenty, while I, a demure spinster well into the fifties, looked quite old enough to be his mother. So the gossips at the little summer hotel where we were boarding could really find nothing to say, though we often had long talks together, this young Jack Turner and myself, when we happened to meet in the parlor or out on the piazzas. The special craze among our young lady boarders just then was the making of all sorts, of pretty pillows, which they filled with pine needles or buds of the fra­ grant balsam fir, and embroidered with various appropriate mottoes, such as "Dream of the woods," "The pines shall whisper peace," "Give me of your balm, O Fir-tree," etc., etc. And as the picking of these pine nee­ dles and pitchy fir-tips was disagreea­ ble work for dainty white fingers, it •was quite the fashion for all the chiv alrio young men in the house to vol­ unteer thei...
