^Xcrt. BY MAK3HALL McCLUEE. JAMESTOWN^ DAKOTA. The alacrity to waive and relinquish rights that any man should feel bound to hand down,unimpaired, to^other gen­ erations, is one of the curious things in American character. The promised considerations for such relinquishment almost invariably fails, but what is waived and relinquished can never be regained. The decision of the House of Repre­ sentatives not to pension a grand­ daughter of Thomas Jefferson, though poverty-stricken in her old age, may eeem to have been due to a lack of sym­ pathy, but it was really inspired by high principle. A civil pension list, or any precedent in that direction, must not be tolerated in this country. One ex­ ample would soon be abused for the benefit of an army of hangers on. The people of Virginia should not allow one of the nearest descendenta of Jefferson to suffer. The railroads are having all the criti­ cism they need at the present time. The farmers are on hand with frequently repeated but hi...

HILDA'S STORY OF A DAKOTA CLAIM. T I have a friend who lives in Dakota, and raises in that remarkable territory some of the finest wheat that is raised in the world. Part of the winter of 1882 he spent in the east, and often game to my rooms where Aye enjoyed jjnany a pleasant hour together. Dur­ ing these interviews I learned many in teresting facts connected with the every day experience of settlers in the west. One incident in his frontier life :amused me very much, and I will re­ peat it as nearly as possible in his own •words, for the benefit of the Companion readers. "My next neighbors," he said, "are a young Norwegian and his wife. The man, whose name is Fete Neilson, is about thirty years old tall, broad shouldered and good-natured. His wife, Hilda, is several years younger, a bright, smiling woman, and full of life. "Sometimes, after work for the day was done, I used to walk over to Neil son's and sit on the bench outside the house, and chat with him for half an hour. The h...

Alfetto tlio Spanish diver, wlio has been at work on the wreck of the At, lanta, near Morehead, thus speaks of an adventure had by him a few days ago: At the time I was at the bottom of the sea. I was just about to signal to be drawn up for a moment's rest, when I noticed a shadowy body moving at Bome distance above me and toward me. In a moment every fish had disappeared, the very crustaceans lay still upon the sand and the cuttle fish scurried away as fast as they could. I was not think­ ing of danger, and my first thought was that it was the shadow of a passing boat. But suddenly a feeling of terror seized me. I felt impelled to flee from something I knew not what. A vague horror seemed grasping after me, such as a child fancies when leaving a dark­ ened room. By this time the shadow had come nearer and taken shape, li scai-cely needed a gla...

While we freely grant that there are respectable and pood citizens among the supporters of Mr. Flint we believe it is safe to assume that this support comes more from personal feeling of friendship for the man than from admiration or en­ dorsement of his policy as an officer. There is also a class in town, recognised and known as the worser class, composed of gamblers and patrons of honses of prostitution, whe care nothing for any one only so far as they can use him in their own interests, and the unanimity with which this class is supporting Mr. Flint is not only apparent to any ob­ server of city politics but it is the subject •f frequent remark. There must be a reason for this support also, and as it cannot be accounted for on the grounds of personal friendship it is not unreason­ able to ...

LOVE'S FKUTM, Two girls were looking over a photo graph album. The facas so near to gether were a striking contrast, for, while Nita Danvers was dark, with a brilliant coloring, her friend Beth was very fair. To look at Beth one would immediate­ ly imagine a home shut away from the distractions of the world of fashion, and Lour spent in doing deeds of charity. But it would be a mistake, for al­ though no more charitable heart ever occupied a maiden's breast, Both had left a homo of luxury and elegance to visit her favorite school friend, and, though by no means a frivolous, shal­ low girl, was one of society's brightest ornaments, winning, by her charm and intelligence, the palm from her more showy, vivacious sisters. Upon the open page before tliem was pictured a man's handsome face, with features regular and denoting high character. Beth exclaimed in pleasant admira­ tion: "So that is Mr. Heitli, your brother Robert's friend? What a splen­ did face!—how glad I am that I shall meet...

A peculiarity of Washington is the excellent manner in which the streets «re kept. No city on this continent approaches it in this respect perhaps no city in Europe, not even excepting Paris, excels it. It has 175 miles of paved streets, more than one-third of which is of concrete—asphalt and coal bar thirty miles of gravel, and the re­ maining seventy miles of stone block, rongh stone, macadam and wood. The Boston Advertiser says of the cynic, whom all the world affects to hate 80 terribly: "Most people (except when their own interests suffer) are very little troubled by the dishonesty, c-ruelty and meanness of human nature and human transactions but now and then a man arises who is actually pained or moved to scorn or to contempt by the spectacle of human life, and such a man, though he bo the most tender­ hearted of his race, will be stigma...

^TCVT. BY .i/.KSHALL McCLUKE. JAMESTOWN, DAKOTA. Canadian politics seem to be more pro­ lific of immorality than American. Charges of bribery, corruption and sim­ ilar offences are bandied about with a Tim almost unknown this side the line, and in too many cases, with good foun­ dation. The most successful journals of the country are newspapers—in fact as well an in name. The old style papers, full and redundant in opinions and chary of facts, have ceased to be piofitable. Some of them are yet in existence, but the income therefrom is small, and in some cases, below expenses, which have to be eked out by the bounty of pol­ iticians and others more remotely in­ terested in their continued life than the public in general. The masses want facts and details of events, and believe themselves capable of forming their own opinions therefrom. Hence the wonderful success of newspapers that are newspapers, and not simply conduits of editorial opinion. The rulings of the courts have been so un...

"How is it," inquired a reporter of a Wellknown druggist on tli9 Bowery, "that I have to pay ten cents fo£ a glass of sodawater in your drug store and only three cents in a dive? What is the reason for the difference The druggist's eye twinkled merrily as he answered: "That's easily explained. The soda-water sold here is properly charged with carbonic ocid, scientifically prepared. The soda-water sold in the dive is not soda at all, as druggists un­ derstand it, but is simply a villainous compound made of health-destroying materials. Why do you wish to know "Because I am desirous of giving the public some idea of the composition of the class of drinks sold to the public at these places." "Very well, then, in such a cause I am only too glad to be of service. Let us commence with whisky, which is most appropriately termed 'rotgut,' for such in reality i...

In the first ward there was no contest on alderman the position being conceded K. S. Miller by common consent.

Spangenberg and John Dee for alderman. The friends of each worked tor and stuck to their candidate from ear iy morning until the last vote was polled. Ur. Spangenberg would have made a jood alderman and while his friends re­ gret his failure of election they concede '.he good business capacity and personal' popularity of Mr. Dee, who will make an excellent representative of his ward in the city council.
