Of course there was never a funnier performance given in this place than •"Over the Garden Wall," as sprung upon the large audience Thursday night by the Knights and their competent chevaliers. Mr. Knight is the -wildest, most untamed jester that can do all he does and say all he says and live, that lives. Art and ex­ perience, one and inseparable, go hand in hand with this gentleman, and in the second act "laughter holding both his sides" and fond recollections dear, give him the most uproarious and convulsive applause and recognition. The play, as admitted in the libretto, was constructed for nothing but merri­ ment, and any thread of sentiment would have marred the absurdities, the exqui­ site tear fetching humor. The only c...

t|A tlte SHIPS BEFORE STEAM. FROM THE SERPENTS OF THE NILE TO NELSON'S LINE SHIPS. Incomplete lCecurds "Wliieli Leave the Character of tlie Ships of Antiquity Somewhat iu Doubt—The Use of Oars Singly anil Combined with Sails. Primitive man must have very early found out that as wood would float, all he had to do to enjoy a ride on the water was to place himself on a piece of floating wood large enough to bear his weight. Whoever made this discovery aod put it to practical use was the first navigator. It could not have been long before it was discovered that floating logs could be propelled by poling in shallow water and by sculling in greater depths. Then followed, no doubt, the raft, the canoe and more finished craft. But as to who made any of these discover­ ies. or as to who first used the oar or the sail, there is no record. It is certain that very early in the world's history mankind navi gated the rivers and lakes and tho edges of the seas, and as almost all commercial rela­ t...

Harris, public examiner for South Dakota, has filed his report of the investigation of the manage­ ment of the Yankton insane asylum with Governor Church. The report is a lengthy and comprehensive paper, and gives in detail the result of the investiga­ tion, showing clearly the misappropria­ tion of funds and the laxity of the trust­ ees. Among other things the report states that the trustees have overlooked their duties as an advisory board, and vio­ lated the law covering the management of such institutions Uiat various funds have 'been taken out of the steward's hands and 'expended by the board that A.

•if. Frederick Warde's Vlrglnius. Again Jamestown lias been compli­ mented by the appearance of a most dis­ tinguished actor in a passion-wrought play, crowded with splendid scenes throughout. Mr. Frederick Warde, di­ rect from along engagement iu SanFran jisco and the principal cities of the Pa­ cific coast, last night favored Jamestown with his magnificent rendering of Vir ginius, in the tragedy of that name. To begin, handicapped with incongruous surroundings, and lack ot every theatri­ cal assistance of .scenery, stagfo room, and audience of encouraging proportions, and to disarm all and carry his hearers ab­ sorbed and delighted to the end, is a tribute to Mr. Warde, greater tlyiu col­ umns of words or rounds of applause. So free from rant, such clear cut, polished and •artistic interpretaticjp of the almost tra­ ditional emotions of a man "perplexed in the extreme," like Othello, has never been witnessed before here. The graceful car riage, the patrician bearing, and the deft ...

,h Ait v' l&gr £*E!a Celestial Water Works. Mandan Pioneer. Passengers on Tuesday's west bound train witnessed a novel and exciting spec­ tacle from the top of Bearer Hill, the highest point on the Missouri Division? Just after the train passed the divide there could be seen a huge black cloud that was apparently a hundred feet be­ low the train. The cloud struck the Butte near Hodge's crossing, a water spont or cloud burst, innundating all the low lands, and covering the railroad track for hundreds of feet with water and de­ bris. The train was compelled to side track and lie still for several hours for the flood to recede. The clouds also struck the high ridge two miles east of Glendive, deluging the country with rain and hail. The hail washed down from the Buttes into the basins and coulees, and these formed in immense cakes, hundreds of tons of it frozen together in masses from two to four feet in thickness. One large block weighing tons was measured by some gentlemen from t...

The student is fortunate indeed if his physique, his skill and his sacri­ fice of much per­ sonal comfort final­ ly result in his be­ ing a member of*any of the three. Many are hopelessly out at the beginning, others work hard through the whole course only to be dis­ appointed but whether successful or not, every undergraduate takes a keen and en­ thusiastic personal interest in the battles •which these three teams wage with rival col­ leges. It costs .? 15,000 to bring the Harvard and Yale crews together at New Loudon every year, and about $50,000 besides to pay the athletic expenses of either college.

Effects of .Prohibition in a Kansas Town—The Bismarck Peni­ tentiary Building. The Locusts At Perham. PERHAM, Minn., July 7.—Special to Tribune: Last year a few grasshoppers appeared on one or two fields in Perham and destroyed part of the crops. They were little fellows unable to fly, and sup­ posed to be common grasshoppers. They kept together in a swarm, worked mostly on the edges of the fields, cutting a nar­ row swath and disappeared about harvest time. Now the prairie about Perham is ALIVE WITH THE LOCUSTS. Trees, walls and buildings are covered with them crawling in the sunlight. They are crushed under foot on the sidewalk and in the streets. In the field they rise in a cloud about you and beat against your face in cliimps. They fly high in the air. On every clear day when the wind is strong, the white wings of mil­ lions of t...

MCGLYNN', whose theories have occupied so much public attention of late, has received for his defiance of the church his expected excommunication from the Pope at Rome. He is now an unfrocked priest, a stranger to all church rituals and privileges, ostracized and practically obliterated. His career from now on promises to be flickering and brief. It remains to be seen whether good standmg in his former profession, an easy living and a respected career would not have been far better in every way for the doctor, than his future life, under the ban of a papal decree that has still the most tenacious and obstructing effects on any man against whom it is directed.

James River Valley Matters of General and Local Import­ ance Faithfully Chron­ icled. A Summer Resort Matter. C. E. Stone, city ticket agent of the Northern Pacific at St. Paxil, came clown from Minnewankan Thursday night after spending the day there looking up the difficulty connected with getting the steamer on the lake, up to land at the Northern Pacific dock, built there some time since. It is claimed the boat can not now approach within five miles of the dock either on account of the filling in of the channel or of low water. It seems that no heavy rains have replen­ ished the lake for two years, and the amount lost by evaporation, as the lake has no outlet, has been considerable. The steamer now only comes as far as Fort Totten. The Northern Pacific officials have been contemplating digging a channel or lengthening the...

VLV IIow Hay and NIcolay Work. I was anxious to know something of the process of the work of preparing tlie biography of Lincoln, appearing in the current numbers of "The Century," and mentioned the curiosity frequently ex­ pressed by readers as to the method of collaboration in writing this history. "The curiosity said Hay, "on the part of the public who are interested in our work is natural, but with us it is a very simple affair. "Col. Nicolay and I go over precisely the same matter, each reading what the pther reads to the last note and reference. "When we have covered enough ground for the making, say, of half a dozen chap­ ters, we meet and review the material together and decide upon the method. "Then wo agree upon the chapters to be written separately by each of us, and when they are finished we exchange work, each inspecting what the other has done and making such suggestions of change as occur." "This still leaves," I said, "the fact that the individual chapters are the li...
