5Ucvt. BY LiARSHALL McCLUEE. JAMESTOWN, DAKOTA. A Puritan IJOVC Letter. Perhaps the oddest, most incongruous, and with the single exception of Sam Wel ler's "Waleniine," most uncouth love letter ever written was one from John Winthrop to lii3 third wife a short time before they were married. He was a Puritan of the straightest sect so was she the two were equally matchca so far, and he accordingly addresses her in the strangest adaptation of Scripture lan­ guage to the purposes of courtship ever seen: lie begins: "Grace, mercy and peace, etc. My own beloved spouse, my most sweet friend and faithful (,-ompanion of my pil­ grimage, the happy and hopeful supply, next Christ Jesus, of my greatest losses (he had lost two wives). I wish thee a a most plentiful increase of all true com­ fort in the love of Christ, with a large and prosperous addition of whatsoever happiness the sweet estate of holy wed­ lock, in the kindest society of a loving husband, mav afford thee.

Training Bloodhounds. A correspondent of tho Houston (Tex­ as) Post, who has been visiting the pris­ on at Iiuntsville, in that state, writes about the bloodhounds used there as follows: "And these are the bloodhounds I hear eo much about?" I remarked to my conductor. "Yes, they are the famous blood­ hounds—that is, as much bloodhounds as you will find in Texas. They arc aim p^pjyjiqunds, trained to hunt men." -d keep them shut up all the "Yes they would make it very lively for the boys if they gqt out." "How often do you have occasion to use them during tho year?" "Not more than two or three times. Convicts will not leave when they know good hounds are on hand to catch them." "Could you not dispense with the hounds and depend upon your guns?" "No, indeed, you cannot hold convicts with shotguns. It is the fear of the hounds which keeps them quiet. De­ sertion is useless when recapture is a moral certainty, as is the case when good hounds are employed." "Oh, no that is about the only...

SCOUTIN FOR INr* .ANS. An Incident of the Present Apache Raid in Arizona. About sundown on the 23(1 of March a prospector came running into our camp and said that the Indians were only four miles away, and that they had killed two of his companions. This news spread quickly through our camp. All of the miners came up out of the Bhaft and went to work with a will car­ rying timber, and we soon had a strong­ hold and plenty of Winchester rflies, ready to give the red devil? a worthy reception. Some of us were appointed scouts to go out from camp and learn the direction the Indians were going, and if coming towards the camp to report. I was ODe of the scouts, and as I inarched out with a Winchester rille. six-shooter and a big bowie kuife, I felt brave—that is until I got about one fourth ol a mile from camp. I wasn't a bit scared, but some how or other my knees seemed to go back on me. The darkness, too, made bad matters worse I had waited at my post about an hour and was beginning to...

A»a -j. v^M '4- r\" ,V 3&-T (KW*.. THE WEEKLY ALERT. .1. C. WARNOCK, EDITOR. IT is to be hoped that the new man­ agement of the Northern Pacific railroad will give immigrant rates next spring that will put North Dakota on an equal footing in this respect with the country traversed by the Northwestern and the Milwaukee roads. TUB Press and Dakotaian, as will be seen by an extract from that paper pub lished in another column, consents to the two conventions suggested some days ago by the Alert for the appointment of delegates to the national republican con­ vention. Bo far we have seen no objec­ tion to the plan from any source, but those papers that have expressed them­ selves favor it. If the plan sh.j uld be adopted by the central committee we would offer the further suggestion that the convention for North Dakota be held at Fargo for obvious reasons of convenience of rail­ road accessibility. We should be pleased to have the convention held at James­ town, but we recognize the...

'j£hc SMcvt. BY MARSHALL MuCLURE. JAMESTOWN, DAKOTA. The Pirates of Barataria. Much ink lias been spilled from that day to this t« maintain that they sailed under kuters of marque. But certainly no commission could be worth the un­ rolling when curried by men who had removed themselves beyond all the re­ straints that even seem to distinguish privateering from piracy. They were often overstocked with vessels and booty, but they seem never to have been embarrassed with the care of prisoners. There lived at this time in New Orleans John and Pierre Lafitte. John, the younger but more conspicuous of the two, was a handsome man, fair, with black hair and eyes, wearing his beard, as the fashion was, shaven neatly back from the front of his face. His manner was generally courteous though he was irascable aiid in graver moments somewhat harsh. He snoke fluently English, Spatii.-h, Italian, and French, using them with much usabili­ ty at the hotel where he resided, and indicating, iu the pec...

BILL SMILEY'S SCARE. Bill Smiley was alight-fingered, enter­ prising young man, who improved his leisure by appropriating other peoples pwpertv whenever he got the chance, lie was a jobbing carpenter by trade, but hia chief occupation was that of a railway thief. The method he adopted was to travel short distances on the different suburban lines, with the object of picking up stray umbrellas, hand bags, and other portable articles which were insufficiently guarded bv their owners. He had an iunocent way of rushing from a railway carriage just as the train was moving off, seizing,in his hurry and confusion,some­ body else's hat box or umbrella from the rack. On the comparatively rare oc­ casions wjien bis mistake was discovered before it was too late to rectify it, his profuse apclogiea were generally accept­ ed with more or less credulity. But, as a rule, he raanagad to get clear away with his spoil, aud so skillfully and cau­ tiously did he conduct his operations that he has never ...

ft** ^kvt. BY UAK3HALL McCLURE. JAMESTOWN, DAKOTA. Without any notable or sudden change the business situation, there is a faint revival of confidence and hope for the future, that may grow into some­ thing more substantial if there are no senseless panics inaugurated by the win­ ter failures, which are simply the weed­ ing out of weak concerns, that would not have existed a great length of time under any circumstances. Presidential electioneering work at Washington is daily exhibited to the public in the vast number of campaign lies early hatched and flying through the air. Some of them are mildly called "canards" and become partially discred­ ited, while the majority are calculated for summer use in the rural districts. Unsuspecting readers will be astonished to learn that a lot of unprincipled Bo­ hemians are already employed and at work in the coming campaign currency for one side or the other, and that this business is tolerated by men who as­ sume to be respected. The fire ins...

The eggs were nil fertile, and the chicks strong enough to come from the shells unaided. They were full feathered in six weeks with white, light gray, or mottled gray and white feathers. The legs were all bright yellow, and the size invariably larger i-han the White Leghorn. The moat 'vhen cooked was very jaicy and well flavored. Some idea of the increased consump­ tion of ...
