3£!jc BY LIAItSHALL McCLURE. JAMESTOWN, DAKOTA, Several prominent lawyers of St. Paul, who have worked hard for many years, are going to treat themselves to a trip around the world, starting from San Francisco for Japan about the first of May. Relative to the importance attached to the present cessation of the foreign demand for American exports, Jay Gould says: "It is, in my opinion, only a question of a short time when we will have very little wheat to export. Corn, however, is our great staple, and we have practically a monopoly. "What the old world does not want in one shape we can give them in the sliape of pork and beef." "While there was ample reason at Cin­ cinnati for indignation at the escape of a murderer from the gallows, yet there would have been no rioting but for the inflammatory talk of newspapers and speeches at a public meeting. The riot­ ers went direct from the meeting to deeds of violence. Men who control the avenues to the public ear should not "lose their head...

"What shall I do doctor?" he said to the white-headed old physician. "You say nothing ails me, bnt I can tell you what my feelings are better than you can. I know I shall be down with something soon. I rode in a car with a half a dozen dirty children, the other day—going to the small pox hospital, I haven't a doubt—very red and nasty looking, all of them and while I was buying something in a store down in Broadway the other day, a horrid old woman begged of me because her litis, band was sick with typhoid fever.

NEVEE until Mrs. Hayes* husband was president baa there leen an administra­ tion of which there was so little said either for or against as that of president Arthur. Like his predecessor he has been neither cold nor hot, aggressive nor slack, aud consequently has neither inspired en ihusiaatic commendation nor provoked severe criticism. Now comes the report that some wan­ dering Arabs have found musty scrolls of parchment containing the original manu­ script of the Mosaic books of the old tes­ tament, found on the supposed route pursued by the Israelites in their journey from Egypt to Palestine. 1 hey have been submitted to the eminent Dr. Harkovy, of St. Petersburg, the celebrated Hebraist, who is giving a critical examination. The probability is that these nomadic lie douins have heard of Barnum's "only greatest show on earth" and naturally caught on to the idea that he would pay around price for its history as...

WIDOW. Her smi'es are tempered by her sighs Her garb scarce veils her glory The tender glamour of her eyes Enshrines her and her story. No greenling girl, nor spinster tart, She's all things that become her: Her life, her beauty, and hor heart, Are in their Indian summer! SXPPLES. I held her little hand in mine, As at the rink wo skated, And met the glances from her eyes, With purest love light freighted. Her pretty face was very near: I stooped and fondly kissed hor, And all the other fellows wished They, too, could kiss—my sister. fETTING A COUNTRY PRACTICE. Tr.

__ Lame, Blind, and Halt. William Comstock in Chicago News. "Was tbere ever Biich a jealous fel­ low—always contriving some new test to subject my affections to?" said Julia •Harvey to her sister, Mrs. Fanny Mark­ ham, as she handed her a letter. It was from Julia's lover, Capt. Paul "Wilton, an officer of the United States infantry, who wrote to prepare her to receive him. He told her that slie would find him much changed, for he had been wounded in the leg and lost his left arm in Mexico then he felt it his duty to say that he should not hold her to her engagement, though he loved her as do voutedly as ever. Now it so happened that Julia had a correspondent in the army, from whom she discovered that the captain had received no injuries, and that this story was concocted mere­ ly as an additional test of the devouted ness of the fair one. "We'll pay him off for this trick, Julia," said Mrs. Markliam. "Come •with: me and I'll instruct you how to give him change in his own coin." Sho...

'H jf£jV. J&-: fi', -!'i- ji, r. 4 "Wl •-'W' ,Mw^ 4 J. C. WARNOCK, EDITOR. THE statement that United States at* torney Hugh J. Campbell has had two thousand people subpoeoaed to appear, before the grand jury now sitting at Yankton for the purpose of giving testi­ mony upon tie subject of ihe capital commlssson alleged crookedness is either ridiculous exaggeration or it places Mr. Campbell in a position where he should ube required to explain to a committee of congress the public interest he will sub­ serve by such an uniiece9sary draft on the United States treasury for expenses. In this respect it would almost equal the •tar route cases and probably not differ from them very materially in result. Such judicial proceedings would soon re­ lieve the treasury of that surplus to get lid of which several political economists and financial prodigies have advanced theories. It is, however, a United States officer who is conducting tbe proceedings and the United States has to pay the ex­...

THE BISHOP'S SlJf. From the London World. As the Bishop's conduct has been the subject of considerable comment, it be­ comes a kind of duty to give the true account of the whole matter. As everybody knows, the Eight Rev. Ever ton and Tauphie was a very broad -churchman. Had he not boldly op­ posed the Tractarian movement in his Oxford days? Did he not recently ex­ tend the episeopal regis to major the -City-Road-Devil-Dodger, when that converted reprobate pitched his tent within the very shadow of the palace, and preached eternal damnation in the choicest of cocknqy Indeed, the bish­ op had been known to smile on Mr. Spurgeon and beam benevolently upon metropolitan Moodies and suburban Sankies. The curate of his diocese were not interdicted from cricket nor his rectors from lawn-tennis and I am not in a position to contradict the ru­ mor that the bishop has been known to •cut into a rubber for "silver threepen­ ces," and in the shadow of a stage-box once saw Mr. Irving play Shy look...

This idea he elucidates as follows in a letter to the London Times: "Very few of our animals live a per­ fectly natural life, most of them are more or less diseased, especially the fat ones. The excess of nitrogen tf ken into the system in eating flesh meat has to be got rid of by the liver, kidneys and lungs hence these organs are over­ taxed, and much disease is the conse­ quence.

The ^tcvt. BY Ii£R3HALL McCLUEE. JAMESTOWN, DAKOTA, The papers of both parties call at­ tention to the fact that 110 man is eligi­ ble to the office of presidential election who holds any other official position. It is believed that both parties will be specially careful in the formation of Electoral tickets, to select men who are clearly eligible to the oftioe. We have had one grave admonition on the sub­ ject, and there can be no excuse for the nomination of ineligible or even doubt­ ful candidates, in the face of the con­ vulsions of 1876. The era of wild speculations has come to an end for the present. The stock and produce markets show a wonderful falling off in gambling transactions, and inexperienced people hrvc received lessons that will last them for some time. It is impossible to estimate the aggregate of losses throughout the country, for those who have suffered are naturally reticent in exposing their own folly and lack of judgement. It is not expected that stock and pro...
