NORTHERN PACIFIC FARMER. JOSEPH E. HALL, Publisher. WADENA, WADENA CO., MINN. (OMMEiVTS. Mrs. Millard Fillmore, widow of the late president, is ill at her residence in Buffalo, New York, and is not expected to live. LEMUEL MCGEE, on his way to work in Yicksburg, said to a companion: "I'm dry, and I ain't got a cent but I'm going to have some whiskey if I die for it." He led them into Samuel Hawthorne's saloon, where they had the drinks, and McGee announced that he couldn't pay. Then he did "die for it." Hawthorne killed him at once with a pistol. EASTERN men visiting the Rocky Mountains generally underestimate the strength and ferocity of cinnamon bears of that region, and lives are fre quently lost in consequence. A recent instance was that of three amateur hunters near Deadwood. They foolish ly drove a big bear into a corner, and one of them was instantly torn to pieces. MAJ. THOS. L. BUTLER died at 91, in Louisville, a few days ago. His father and four uncles distinguished them s...

Just three years old! and brought to church to sit in th« narrow pew, And wonder at all the mysteries that rise before her view— The noiseless movement down the aisle the crowd, and faces new The organ that peals out many strains, though hidden from the sight The arches, and windows of stained glass that tower to such a height The eagle that bears tne Bible up the choir in their robes of white. To wonder anil watch with childless awe that is more than more surprise, That seems to catch in the tones of earth some echo of the skies, And reflects itself in the tender face, in the solemn, wide gray eyes, Out of whose cloudless, dewy depth glimuiei-s the earliest ray Of the awakening love wlio.se dnwn heralds a fuller day, When, ...

Shakes Peare, nor John Milton, nor that other one Who wrote the rojal "Idylls of the King"— I mean, of course, good Alfred Tennyson- Could justice do to such a monstrous thing As you are. Words there are not to describe Your adiposal bigness. Numeration fails To "foot up" all the pounds you weigh. Your tribe, If many like you it can boast, on scales Must be the most stupendous feature of The animal kingdom. Surely you're the first. In point of vast obeseness, creature of The breathing world. What cow was it that nursed So great a calf? Come, answer if you can. Inform me by your bellowing language, sir. And be the first bovine to talk with man.

JOSEPH E. HALL, Publisher. WADENA, WADENA CO., MINN. COMMENTS. EX-KING AMADEUS is now on a tour in England, buying up horse3 for the royal stables of Italy. THE sale of "gold" bricks, made principally of brass, is brisk in the west. One corner is pure gold, and from that is clipped the sample to be assayed. Louis HOIIEXSCHILD frequently had epileptic fits in the night, and, as a pre caution against falling out of bed, tied himself fast. One morning he was found choked to death by the rope. IN Russia, all the sons and daugh ters of princes inherit their title. They are, consequently as plentiful as spar rows. It is said that there is a village where every inhabitant is a Prince or Princess Gallizen. The title of Prince in Russia is about equivalent to that of Esquire in England. A SOCIETY of Mormon girls, having for its object the securing of mono gamic husbands, has been discovered and broken up at Salt Lake.

AliAH! I AM BLIXD. BY ANDREW EADIE. Tliere must be a charm in the beatiful sky When the clear stars glisten on high And the bright heavens glow with a gleaming Light From the sun by day and the moon ny night But where'er I gaze 'tis the act of the mind. For I can see nothing. Alas! I am blind. Yet I love the breeze as it sweeps o'er 'ny face, And think it so strange it leaves not trace I love the mad waves as they dash on the shore. There's nothing I know that pleases me more. But when the wild sea to engulf is inclined, Then God help the sightless. Alas! I am blind. I love the sweet birds as they sing on the tree Their melody charms though I cannot see And their tender love notes fall soft on my ear Yet thoy will fly from me—why do thoy fear? In me they've a friend who is loving and kind Still theytdo not know that. Alas! I am blind.

SOSXET. From mom to eve they wrestled—Life and Death. At first it seemed to me that they in mirth Contended, or as foes of equal worth, So firm their feet, so undisturbed their breath But when the sharp red sun cut through its sheath Of wistern clouds, I saw the brown arms' girth Tighten, and bear that radiant form to earth, And suddenly both fell upon the heath. And then the marvel came—for when I fled. To where those great antagonists down fell, I could not find the body which I sought, And when and where it went I could not tell One only form was left of those who fought— The long dark form of Death—and it was dead. THE DRIFT-WOOD FIRE. Harpers Weekly. It was our last night at the Beach House, and those of us that were left had clustered round the fire that had Deen laid on the hearth of the great hall, where all summer we had been wont to do our masquerading and our dancing.
