®heWiIIistoD#raphi( R. H. ContUND, Publisher. WILLISTON] I H. DAK. IN Sweden, if you address the poor est person in the street you must lift your hat. The same courtesy is in sisted upon if you pass a lady on the stairway. To enter a reading1 room or a bank with one's hat on is regarded as impolite. WM. STARR, a Staten Island fisher man, found in one of his lobster pots in the lower bay the other day a lob ster weighing pounds. It meas ured two feet ten inches in length from tip to tip and its claws were 13 inches long and seven and a half inches wide. IIRKKAFTRH in Connecticut a voter must not only be able to read but he must read the English language suffi ciently well to read at sight any article of the constitution or any section of the statutes of the state. Intelligence is to be a factor at the Connecticut polls in the future.

TlliilikJ was a time, but a few years since, when tlif- prairies of western Kansas were the scene of bitter rivalry .between the rich cattlemen and the poor homeseekers. Naturally it was to the interest of the cattlemen to keep homeseekers out of the country, for so long- as the land remained unsettled just so long- did it furnish rich, free pasturage for the great herds of cattle. In their efforts to keep the pioneer settlers from taking up claims and building homes the cattlemen very oft en went beyond the limit of the law. In fact, in many instances they ignored the laws altogether and were governed in their actions simply by their per sonal wishes and their power to enforce them. Out in Ness county there was a big cattle ranch ow...

CHAPTER I. The train stopped at Sidington just long enough to have a trunk thrown off and allow one passenger to alight. The trunk was mine, the passenger myself. Tlien the train went on again, the en gine puffing and. hissing in a vain at tempt to acquire suddenly the greatest speed, seemingly in great impatience that it had been compelled to stop at ttjl_which was not to be wondered at for, when I gazed around, from what I could see, Sidington was nothing more than a station house, a few miles of railroad, and a wide stretch of hilly country. There was a young fellow of about my age standing in the doorway of the wait ing-room. He was regarding me with evident curiosity. I stepped up to him. "Where is the station agent?" I asked, briefly. "Why, I'm the agent," the fellow re plied, in drawling tones. "Isn't there any town here, or at least a settlement? Is this—" sweeping my arm around in a comprehensive gesture —"is this all there is of Sidington?" "You kin see about all there is ...

1 '-*4 'fc^-S -i TJI1 A STRANGE PEOPLE. Some 1 •?*.: I vf# One of the most remarkable of the '•isiivals celebrated by the Indiana is carnival of ghosts, which is held each winter. It seems to be derived from a tradition that tells of a journey made oy an adventurous individual to a re gion beneath the earth, inhabited by phantoms. The celebration itself is a mimical representation of the visit to hades aforesaid, and the performer who represents the submundane traveler wears a necklace and headdress set ropnd with skulls. Hi is festival requires elaborate prep aratioQs. Speaking tubes of dried giant kelp are laid under the foot of the lodge house so as to terminate in the fire place. When tie ceremonial is in prog ress the performer disappears into a ditch previously dug behind the fire place, and then many voices are heard homing out of the flames—really the voices of persons hidden in adjoining rooms/who speak through the tubes. Later on an image representing a ghost is seen to ri...
