Htttnm tribune. TRIBUNE PRINTING CO., Publishers. WILLMAR. I MINN It is stated that the English language Is growing faster than any other, past or present. That is because those who use it have a great deal to say in this world. And now a "relief" expedition is to be sent to the north pole to the relief of Lieut. Peary, who went to the re lief of someone, the scientists have just now forgotten Whom. Experiments in wireless telegraphy prove that moving craft at sea can com municate with each other at a distance. Ships that pass in the night hereafter may at least exchange compliments. 'Indian corn has become an ingredient of smokeless powder, and is turned in to a substitute for rubber. Europe has also discovered the merit of corn cakes •with maple sirup. There is an expan sive future for maize. The estimated loss of $1,000,000 in the burning of Dawson, Alaska, sounds queer, when it is known that the place was-but a collection of log houses.

TWO SINGERS rwo singers there were, and one -was like To a queen in he* royal gown— JVith stately step, and pride agleam In the deep of her eyes of brown And one's was a face with a gentler grace, And eyes that a heart shone through— 2yes that borrowed the schoolday tint Of a little sunbonnet of blue. 3ne was a singer of great renown. Now stirring the blood with a note, Sow charming the ear with the cultured tones That came from her shapely throat and one was a singer of songs of love, And she knew not the ways of art But she sang right on past the ear and poured Rich melodies 'round the heart. Two tributes of song—and one was lost In the deafening volley of cheers And one throbbed on when the singer was gone, And the answer was silence and tears. ah, many the day that has passed since then, And the singers who sang are not But memory holds to a little song, And the other—forgot! forgot! -John Howard Todd, in Boston Tran script.

We now began to hurry a little, and found that Corte was right, for the soldiers who had lined the passage inside the Bronze gates had taken themselves off, and a con siderable number of servants and follow ers were enjoying here the results of pi ratical raids on the supper tables Outside, however, everything was in or der, for De Leyva was a thorough soldier. I found both the Spaniard and De Briconnet cursing their luck at being on the guards, and attacking a capon which they were washing down with copious draughts of Falernian. Their duties kept them out side, and it was a poor supper they were making, by the light of torches, seated to gether on the steps of the Vatican. "What! out already, cavaliere?" asked Briconnet. "Is the cardinal going?" "No, but there is a little business," I an swered, as I called Jacopo. "Nom du diablc! Can I not come?" "It would be a...

1/ I. £1 A SUP SOXBWHBBE As a newspaper man, I had been through the jail at Black Hill with the sheriff, and he had introduced me to Dan Needham, who was charged with stage-robbing and killing. Dan didn't look fierce enough, according to my way of thinking, for such a terrible man as they made him out to be, but there was proof sufficient to hang him. We were sitting on the steps outside, when a body of 40 men rode up. As the leader dismounted he said to the sheriff: "Well, Joe, you got Dan Deedham in here, haven't you?" "Yes, had him three days," was the reply. "We've come to hang him." "Shoo! Why don't you give up to the aw?" "Better to hang him. Goin' to make any fuss about it?" "Don't see how I can, but I'm agin sich hangin's. Thar's alius a chance of a slip somewhar's, you know. Hang in' the wrong man don't do no good." "But this is the right man, Joe.

Vol. 5. FLEEING FROM THE INDIANS The Flight of the Diamond Lake, Eagle Lake and Green Lake Settlers Before the Red-Skins. Among those who had exciting ex periences with the Indians at the time of the outbreak was Andrew Nelson, living at that time in the town of Will mar. The story of his adventure with the Indians is closely connected with that of the Indian fight at Mr. Eric son's in the town of Dovre. Those who have read the account of that fight may remember of the appointment made by Mr. Foote with Mr. Nelson to meet him at his cabin, and they together would go over to Mr. Erics on's. At just about dark Mr. Nelson started for Mr. Foote's place, and go ing up to the door opened it, and walk ing in found the room full of Indians. Mr. Nelson turned and darted into a cornfield a short distance from the house with the Indians after him. It was by this time dark and the Indi ans, not only somewhat blinded in rushing from a lighted room out into the intense darkness, but confused be c...
