TMSilBi (Continued from 1st page.) caigbt got myself into the muss. Two against one has always been against my principles, but if anyone else wants to challenge me I will ac cept. Therefore, I will get to choose the weapons. I would choose the pen of course, and I pick up my pen and feel like I was half mule and the other half whale, consequently I have the advantage, both on land and sea. I can live fat on stake, oats, or eat boiled owl, let it be ever so tough, and after dinner pick my teeth with Tuttles log yard. All I have to do, is just open that cavity of mine that was made to take in pork and beans, and the communication rolls out like bologna from a sausage stuffer. So you see I'm in no wise to be trifled with. LICK SKILLET. BASTB&N WADENA. Oh! dear, such weather! If we could have a little snow to patch up the sleighing it would suit lumbermen and everyone else that wants to get around, particularly with a team. But then if we say a word about the weath er, why here is s...

SUMMER IN WINTER. Winter is it? Summer splendor Never was so fair to see!— All because a maiden tender Gave to-day her heart to me. Heaven a happy lifetime lend her, Long, and from all evil free For the graces that commend her Make lier life the life of me. A RECOVERED TREASURE. "Must you go out again, dearest?" Helen Tracy's wistful blue eyes were lift ed to her husband's face as he came into the sitting-room with his overcoat on. He was a tall stately-looking man, with a high forehead and clear brown eyes and the pleasantest of smiling mouths, but Helen's face had a somewhat in its blonde, oval beauty that reminded yon of the haunted fawn, or the wild bird stricken down by the sportsman's shot. She was fair as a lily, with hair of bright, rippled gold, and large violet dark eyes—such an one as you might fancy Saxon Rowena to have been, in short. "Yes, but I shall soon be home, Neil, so don't worry yourself about me, Harry is asleep I see." As he sqoke he glanced toward a velvet cu...

SRNATOK COJFKMNG of' New York, vis- ited Gen Garfield at his home in Mentor, Ohio, and was closeted with him for sever hours. Beyond this nothing is known, but the papers Tire filled with speculations as to the import of the visit, all agreeing in one thing, that it possesses considerable polit eal significance. THE failure to bring Sitting Bull into camp is now attributed to the ill-advised attack of Major Hges on Big Indian Gall, and Ins band, which stampeded Bull to his old quarters at Wood Mountain.

(Continued from 1st page.) (That is not her name though.) Re luctantly he exchanged the company of his fair friend for that of our worthy constable. Perplexities were not at an end, for refusing to act as witness without having first received a fee, Citizen No. 2 was arrested for "contempt of court," and the consta* ble began to quail at the evident pros* pectof a trip to Fergus with his prisoners. At length No. 2 seemed to remember that "discretion is the better part of valor,*' and complied reluctantly with the demands of the court. The suit went on—but what killed that "dorg" is yet a dark mys tery. The prisoner was released, sufficient evidence not having been given to convict him. INCOG. MIUFFTON!

His surface is seamed and scarred in every direction* with black 6pots that in dicate the disturbing elements at work in his chaotic mass. Occasionally, for a day or two, the blemishes disappear, and the glorious king of day shows a face like a shield, of glowing gold. But the aspect quickly changes spots come rushing in all directions and assuming all forms. They appear singly and in pairs, and again in groups and rows. Immense groups break np into squill ones, and small ones unite to. form great chasms, into Which half a dozen worlds might be dropped and there would still be room for more. Sometimes the spots are visible' to the naked eye, and at,that time a good opera glass or a spjr glass will make them easily perceptible. Hundreds of observers all over the world watch the sun's face e...

NORTEffiiP|ACIHC FARMER Pu^isher* WADENA,^XDSNA., ^b., M^NEJS^TA. CURRENT TOPICS. A CuKiousfact brought to light by the census of 1860 is that there are fewer per sons of northern birth liViriig in the south ern states than ten years ago. The great increase in the southern states—white and black—is nearly all original native stock— in other words, these states are filling up with people of native growth and birth. WHATEVER luck may have fallen to fire insurance companies in genetal during the past year, the Pennsylvania companies have no reason to complain.

MINNESOTA NEWS. MINNESOTA LEGISLATURE. MONDAY, FEBBUABY 21.. Senate—A new railroad bond bill was intro duced in the/senate, passed through its earlier stages, and will be put on its passage to-mor row, which provides for the settlement of the! bonds on the basis of Mr. Chamberlain's propo sition, but without the adjudication' which he asked. In other words, the bill is actually based on the assumption that the court would decide that the bonds are valid obligations of the State and proposes to pay half the debt but to save the credit of the state it ostensibly as sume the validity of the bonds is in dispute, and on this ground provides for settling them by paying half what is due in full satisfaction of the whole amount in new five per cent." bonds, payable in thirty years, while another bill pro vides that the proceeds of the 500,Oi. acres of internal improvement lands shall be devoted to the payment of the bonds.

ANOTHER DISATB&IOTJ8 FXRB! The Oity Bank Building Burned.— Loaa About tl,700. Wadena seems destined to receive more than her share of fires this win ter, but considering her limited means of protection, we think she, is very fortunate in not being burned down entirely. Last Saturday sVeiling at 8:30 o'clock, a fire was discovered in the rear of the City Bank tiu|lding, by J. M. Olseiij who occupied the low er rooms as a store. It probjibly or iginated from a defective flue and caught between the plastering and the siding and burned up through the roof making such headway that when help arrived it was impossible to save the building. Citizens next turned their at.tention to saving the contents, and it was not long until everything, ex cepting two stoves and the large bank safe, was out of the building, saving even the doors, windows, etc., of the lower story. During all this time others were carrying water, shovel ing snow on the roof of Katzky's build ing preparing to give the f...

If you were thrall to sorrow, And I were page to joy, We'd play for lives and seasons With loving looks and treasons, And teara of night and morrow, And laughs of maid and boy If you were thrall to sorrow, And I were page to joy. If you were April's lady, An...
