PRBHAPS no presidential campaign in tbe history of American politics has left in its wake so many wrecks of moral character as will the present one. Cleve­ land and Blaine have both been tattooed With immoral episodes in their earlier lives and now the authors of these stones on both sides are being overhauled and it will be proven no doubt that they "know how it is themselves." The ureacher that suited the scandal story on Cleveland has been followed into lus crooked paths, aud the sleuth hounds are bard upon tbe track of tbe author of Maine's Kentucky peccadillos and will anmfce him out of bis biding place before many days.

wttww HOTT your swoet face revives again The dear old time, my Pearl, If I may use the pretty iiame I called you when a girl. You are so young while Time of me Has made a cruel prey, It has forgotten you, nor swept One grace of youth away. Tlio same sweet face, the same sweet smile. The same lithe figure, too! What did you say? "It was perchance Your mother that I knew?" All, yes, of course, it must have been, And yet the same you seem, And for a moment, all these years Pled from me like a dream. Then what your mother would not give, Permit me, dear, to take, The old man's privilege a—kiss— Just for yourmothor's sake. —W. Vt. Story. LOUDON HOLIDAY.

One of tlie newest adaptations of electric illumination is the shape of a very small lantern, which can be intro­ duced into the mouth, throat, and in some cases, the stomach, for the purpose of aiding surgical and dental operations which can not be carried on without light and for which it lias been extremely difficult lierefore to obtain light by mirrors or other means. Experiments bave been making for some years to perfect apparatus of this kind. Since 1881 E. T. Starr, an expert in electrical science, has been working at intervals upon minute electrical lamps in his rooms, in White's dental establishment, at Twelfth and Chestnut streets, and at last has succeeded in getting highly satisfactory results. Patients have been obtained. The instrument has been critically examined by dentists and surgeons and has already b...

Bir LIARS HALL McCLURE. JAMESTOWN, DAKOTA, The fact that the municipal authori­ ties of Mattoon, HI., directed that women •who appeared on the streets in an un­ belted Mother Hubbard should be sent to jail, is a fruitful topic of dog-day edi­ torials in most of the leading newspapers of the country.

0£ yy a VOL. VI -NO. 11 THE WEEKLY ALERT. O. WARNQCK, EDITOR. IN his letter of acceptance Cleveland ventures one expression of bis judgment outside of tbe pis* form, and that is that the constitution should be so amended as to make tbe president ineligible to re electiou. That is not a new question nor is it in any sense an issue between the parties It simply amounts to the absurd preposition in tbe American theory of government that the people may some limes bo incapable of choosing a proper executive of the nation. The man is sup posed to be chosen to this office for his eminent fitness, the exercise of which wisdom and integrity (bis proposition practically assumes renders him unfit, for there would be no occasion to make a man constitutionally ineligible who had proven himself unfit. Tbe only effect or such a constitutional amendment would be to disqualify those who have demon­ strated themselves eminently qualified, as they are the enly ones likely to lte affect­ ed by it.

HOW SOLDIERS ABE MADE. RTbat» Recruit Has to Vnderffo to Oat In­ to the Army. An erect and good-looking yonng fel­ low of stalwart pro portions and muscu­ lar appearance presented himself on Saturday at the recruiting office, No. 1919 Market Street, for enlistment in the United States Army. Captain H. H. Humphreys, the officer in charge, was favorably impressed with the gen­ eral appearance of the young man, who teas of Scotch birth and about twenty sight years old. The applicant passed the physical examination creditably. No defect in his anatomical structure was discovered to operate against his desire to become a soldier. In giving the final instructions Captain .Hum preys noticed that the young man did not seem to comprehend their import. iI didna ken," was his explanation. He was rejected an account of his imper­ fect knowledge of the English language. The general supposition would be that rejections on the ground of imper­ fect knowledge of the Eglish language Avere very rare,...

i!.S- .ty a V1 i:-' Rl*. flic %Xcvt. BY UAE3HALL McCLURE. JAMESTOWN, DAKOTA, There are forty-nine vessels, nearly all British, in the harbor of San Francis­ co under engagement to transport wheat to the Brtiish Isles. They are all of large tonnage, ranging from 1,000 to 3,000 tons, and all iron vessels. There is now 111,000 tons, of disengaged tonnage in port, against 96,000 tons a year ago, and 240,000 tons on their way engaged to come, against 303,000 tons at this time last year. The possibility of gold bringing a slight premium in the future has led to discussions of the past, and the fact is stated that the currency price of gold reached its maximum on July 11, 1864, when it touched 285 on the New York Stock Exchange—that is, $285 in cur­ rency was paid for $100 of gold coin. Nothing approximating to the above can occur again, save under similar circum­ stances which are not likiely to exist during the life of the nation. The agricultural department's latest estimate of the whea...

Bam Houston IMIOTIA th« Becorda of th.s Stat* About two years after the Texan revo» lution General Houston had his first difficulty with the people. Under the constitution the capital had been fixed at Austin, but power was given to the president to order the temporary re­ moval of the archives in case of danger. The Comanches were committing rav­ ages within sight of Austin, and Gen­ eral Houston ordered the state records ^to be forwarded to him at Washington (Texas). This caused much excitement in Austin, and four hundred men placed themselves about the State-house to prevent the removal. Colonel Morton, a leading spirit of the revolution, was at their head, and wrote to General Houston, who well knew his character as a fighting man, that, if the archives were removed, he (Morton) would hunt him down like a wolf. General Hous­ ton replied in a note of characteristic brevity: "If the peopl...

VOTJ THE WEEKLY ALERT. J. A WARNOCK, EDITOR. THE floating indebtedness of this coun ly, principally for roads and bridges, is it buid for which the people for the pres­ ent, should be relieved by an act of the legislature funding the debt in bonds to run fifteen or twenty years, and the mem­ ber of the next legislature from this coun­ ty should be instructed to secure such legislation. Roads and bridges are an indispensable necessity to the develop­ ment of the county, but it is neither just nor proper that the pi.neers-should bear this burden alone tb at others coming here and settling later may enjoy tlie benefit without paying a portion of the expenses. With this indebtedness funded a very low tax levy would he sufficient to pay the interest and current expenses of the coun­ ty.

i'i r. *1% rip I '•fpSK I'' IC BY ii AIi5 HALL Mc^LUKE. JAMESTOWN, DAKOTA. The recent advance in stocks is at­ tributed to the unprecedented cheap­ ness of money in New York—only two percent, per annum—and it is said that produce is equally affected by the same cause. Texas is making fast and long strides in progress. The growth of the state is extraordinary for the south, and is only rivaled by some of the newer com­ monwealths in the far west. The pop­ ulation increased during the decade be­ tween 1870 and 1880 from 818,579, to 1,591,749, or at the rate of "almost ten per cent, a year, and the indications are that the growth has been even more rapid since the last census was taken. The state assessment for 1884 shows again of about $60,000,000 over that for 1883, and the total is now nearly $600,000, 000, as against less than $312,000,000 in 1880.

MRS. BATTERBY'S CRAZY QllILT. BY AMELIA SUXLIVAN. Chicago Tribune. Mrs. Batterby was a model wife and mother. Please to remark, dear reader, I say was, be­ cause after careful observation and deep con­ sideration of the subjoct, I am convinced that a woman who allows herself to fall under the baleful spell of "crazy" patchwork, becomes surely and swiftly lost to every other influence and heedless of every appeal either to her conscience 3r her affections. Well, Mrs. Batterby was a dear little roly poly of a woman, with dark blue eyes, and a soft gurgling laugh that was perfectly infec­ tious, and which had the added charm of sud­ denly bringing into viow two rows of little white teeth and some hitherto unsuspected dimplos. Her bright brown hair waved natur ally on either side of her smooth whits fore­ head, and Mr. Battorby who had the reputa­ tion of being quite a connoisseur in female beauties, and given to admiring showy, brilliant women, thought there never was anything in those...
