ii* 1 M- \i 'if if f? *e •. h-i ).:a f'.i* i.iii vj,v- J:, 11 V| i,K iff rV, i, BY MARSHALL McCLUKE. JAMESTOWN, DAKOTA. Dio Lewis reaches the conclusion that consumption is found in every cli­ mate. Inhabitants of the frozen recrion, and those who live under the equator, die of consumption. As to the United States, there is no doubt that New England has the largest ratio of mor­ tality from consumption. But the dif­ ference is slight, and is probably ac­ counted for by her immense cotton, •woolen, and other great factories, and her very close houses, aud by the hered­ itary tendency in families. The wholesale destruction of forests along the Ohio Valley, within the past ten years, may have had something to do with the alarming drought that is said to prevail within a radius of 150 miles from Cincinnati. The grain fields and pastures are parched. There are signs of an almost complete failure in the crops of the Kentucky tobacco fields and the corn of southern Ohio, Indiana and northe...

JAMESTOWN, DA KOTA During the month of July the nation­ al debt was reduced nearly $4,000,000, which decrease, in view of the heavy disbursements made for pensions and interest, is quite as large as was expect­ ed generally. A few persons expected the extinguishment would roach $5, 000,000, the sum fixed upon in the esti­ mates, but the warrants for pensions aggregated $10,000,000 and so absorbed some of the surplus intended for debt reduction. A recently enacted law forbids the gratuitous publication of statistics col­ lected by the Government, and the cab­ alistic figures of imports, exports and immigration which until lately flowed in recurring streams from "Washington will be seen no more for a season.—The great masses of figures gathered and published by the government, are sim­ ply rubbish to a majority of the people, but to certain specialists they are val...

Both at school and at college Bernard Booker had been one of the wildest and most dare-devil youths imaginable. Ho had been the terror of meek companions the aversion of ordor-loving dominies, the triumphant outwitter, on more than one occasion, of even that great man the proctor. But these halcyon days were past. Any particular exuberance of spirits in Bernard's present position would have "been as phenomenal and incongruous with his surroundings as the presence of English hedge-blossoms in an East­ ern desert. He was chained to the oar of daily toil as tightly and as hopelessly as any galley-slave. The sturdy sym­ metry of his figure, the humorous cast of his fi'ank and open countenance, the twinkle of his light-blue eyes, were all that outwardly remained of the idiosyn­ crasies that had made him the idol of his comrades in class and on college walk. The pressure of adverse circu...
