ROLLY BRICK'S TWO FRIENDS. Margaret Eytingo iu Good Cheer for March. There sat tlio little dog yet, and that was the fourth time Plienie had passed that way since morning—twice going to and twice coming from school. Lunch time she had brought a small bit of bread and a mouthful of meat from home (her folks were poor and could not spare more), and coaxing him, with out­ stretched hand and kind words, to come down the long flight of steps to where .she stood on the sidewalk, she had fed them to him, but he had swallowed them in great haste, and, with a grate­ ful wave of his curly tail and a thankful look in his brown eyes, had hurried back»again. It was a dreary place—the building to which these steps belonged, so dreary that it seemed strange that even a dog would choose to linger there. A great, ftrey building, dark and funereal in every stone of its Egyptian architecture with massive doors and iron-barred windows, it cast a gloom all about it, and one looking up at its strong wall...

$lw 3Ucvt. BY LIAH3HALL Mc^LU&E. JAMESTOWN, !.-• DAKOTA The reports of railroad earniri$Mor March, show a reduction compared with last year of over five per cent., and this Indicates a material falling off in gener­ al business, but this is largely attribut­ able to the inclement weather during that month the return for the three months since J"anuary 1 are only slightly smaller then last year, and the returns for April show a very decided improve­ ment, which is a pretty •certain sign an increase in the volume of genera business. The Cincinnati newspapers are still trying to exculpate themselves from the charge of nciting the late riot, bu' they find it a difficult matter- Tin truth is, that instead of the so-called "dangerous classes" being at the bot­ tom of the bloody affair, it was respec­ table newspapers and respectable pub lie speakers. Had they exhibited ordi­ nary common sense there would hav« been no riot. Undoubtedly the rio1 will work reform where reform wa greatly ...

1 Mv & klh SLEEP AND SLEEPCE8SVES& Ciom UD Com of Zuamalt-TLTIP Walking1, ate. Dr. Henry Gibbons, Jr., Dean of the College Faculty at San Francisco, lately (delivered a lecture on this subject. He began by saying that a definition of sleep is not easily given. Poets have likened it to death. The latter is the permanent cessation of all the functions sleep is the temporary suspension and cessation of all the faculties. Notice that a total suspension of all the facul­ ties is not necessary. It has been said that the mind never rests. Dreams are frequentin sleep. Portions of the body, when a person begins to go to sleep, suspend action one by one, and then the brain is effected. First the vision begins to become dimmed, and then the senses cease one after another. In sleep, the forces of the body are not wasted they are recuperated. Perspns often sleep regardless of ef­ fort tliey sink down from sheer ex­ haustion. The speaker cited a number of historical instances when men in ...

*.U THE WEEKLY ALERT. J. C. WARNOCK, EDITOR. THE Steele Herald is quite ecstatic over the fact ot the territorial convention in­ structing the delegates to the national re. publican convention to vote for Blaine and Lincoln. Tbe Herald should begin to come down from its pinnacle of "glory" so that it will not have so far to fall when the result of the,Chicago convention is announced. Blaine went into the Cin­ cinnati convention in 1876 with over 150 votes more than 'any other candidate and maintained that lead until the 7th bal­ lot when Hayes was nominated. Blaine started in with 285 votes and Hayes with 61. Blaine went ginto the Chicago con­ vention in 1880 with 284 votes and did not vary more than 10 from that number through the first 36 ballots but on the 37th Garfield, who up to that time had not received more than 2 votes, was nom­ inated. There Is no man OB the Ameri­ can continent who has less confidence than Blaine in a sure thing. N THE other afternoon a veiled lady with a...

& •v 5? r*K£ Jt*8k I h-. Of* THE WEEKLY ALERT. J. C. WA11NOCK, EDITOR. The idea or setting apart a special hour of prayer for the editors by the national women's temperance union is a good one and should be encouraged. There is Plummer, of the Fargo Republican, Ed­ wards, of the Argus, and Richardson of the Valley City Times, all splendid sub­ jects for concentrated supplication. But Jewell, of the Bismarck Tribune, who perpetrated that roller skate outrage upon us last winter, which we can fgrgive but never forget—well, it is our deliberate judgment that it would be a waste of piety to pray for him. THE Bismarck Tribune of Sunday morning gives formal notice of the rc tirement of Col. Lounsberry, its founder and able editor for more than ten years last past. The Tribune is a newspaper 'creditable alike to Bismarck and lo North Dakota and the Alert is pleased to know that its high standard will still be maintained under the proprietorship and editorship of Mr. M. H. Jewell, an ex...

VOL. VI.—NO. 42 THE WEEKLY ALERT. J. O. WARNOCK, EDITOR. IN case the bill increasing the member­ ship in each licusc of the territorial legis­ lature to double the present number shall pais the senate and become a law, each legislative district as it HOW stands will elect two members of the council and four of the honse of represent it ives at the elec­ tion this fall, as the territory cannot be re-districted until the next session of the legislature. As this is a contingency that is almost sure to happen those who figure the placing of the candidates out will soon commence on the problem. Com­ mon fairness would of course dictate that these members should be selected with a view to as nearly an equitable division of the candidates as possible.

LATEST NEWS BY WIRE [ASSOCIATED PRESS.] No Danger of a Paulo- PHILADELPHIA, May 16— Senat&r ishor man, interviewed here, said We fire neither in a panic nor on the v^rt»t of it, unless my judgment is seriously it fault. The country is not in anything like the condition in which it was in '73, when the crash that year came. Our tUi-.mcia status is entirely different. The present troubles are entirely local, not general. Reckless speculation: the creation of fictitious values in stocks and sharp com­ petition on railroad securities are the causes of the existing difficulties. It is extremely easy to creatc distrust in money circles, when there has been such a fluc­ tuating market as in New York for sev­ eral months past. look upon the pres­ ent troubles as simply the result of over­ trading in securities that for a loug time have been merely a foot bull of Wall Street.

OCTOROONS. A Xftce Which is no *»c»-The Peculiar Position of its Womsn. D. M. Locke ("Nasby") writes as fol­ lows in the Toledo, Ohio, Blade: There is in New Orleans a race and distinct race which is no race. It has its one hand upon the whites and the other upon the blacks, and it occupies a po­ sition betwixt and between, belonging to both and to neither. The whites re­ fuse to acknowledge them, and they hold themselves so far above the blacks that they will acknowledge no rolation ship with them. Like the bat, they are neither bird nor animal, but to oc­ cupy a position entirely distinct and a very lonesome one it is. These are the octoroons, which in New Orleans means not only a person whose blood is one-eighth negro, but all of that clnss who are almost white, but in whom negro blood is perceptible. Down here they don't say negro blood —it is negro "taint." They are not white enough for the white, nor black enough for the negro. Their position, especially that of the women of t...
