li 1" faik iht',h ih4 », i}, W::: (,i w. m]{• lllS.}.?.J?: mi\m. Chicago Tribune Prize Story. It was a sunny evening in June, and Romulus Corners looked its beat. Not that its beat was anything to boast of, for it was not much of a place, consist­ ing only of a dozen or so straggling houses, two "general stores," and a meeting house, on a line of tlxe Bosha *va and St. Paul railway. All the buildings were of wood, and most of them painted a dark and hideous brown though here and thera a verandah of vi­ vid green or a brilliant blue doorstep marked the dwelling of some unusually ambitious Cornerer. All dwellers at the Corners agreed that old Deacon Tiffany's house was "the smartest in the lot," and this certainly could not be de­ nied it stood on a small piece of rising ground overlooking the railway track,a somewhat conspicuous posi­ tion, where the eleven different colors which ornamented its front could not fail to be observed of all trav­ elers. These eleven colors were the pride...

A State Prison Incident. As the train neared the heavy wall frowning down upon the iron thorough­ fare, the pale-faced woman with sad eyes, with streaks of gray among lu-r bair, pressed the little golded-haired girl more closely to her side. "Sing Sing!" rang out the trainman's voice. I have passed the station time and time again, but always the Bound ol that name falls upon my ears with dis­ mal import. In the glow of a summer mid-day, when all the earth is beau­ teous, when songs of gladness fill the air the name sends a chill of despair to my heart -a sympathetic feeling for those who are condemmed to pass long hours,weeks, dragging months and weary yeare within those dismal walls. At midnight, when the wind whistles among the Hudson riv«r palisades, and when the fleecy snow clouds scurry along the black horizon, I've often been awaken­ ed from a pleasant dream of home where dear ones are gathered, by the sound of that name—Sing Sing. And, within a stone's throw are. hundreds sle...

VOL. VI.-NO. 17 THE WEEKLY ALERT. J. 0. WAKNOCK, EDITOR. THE attempt upon the life of ex-gover­ nor St. John, of Kansas, and prohibition candidate for president, by shooting Into bis car window in Indiana is an outrage and a shame upon every citizen of that state. Just such vicious and outrageous acts as this gave life and vitality to the abolition cause when slavery was the dominant tyrant, and this act will give new life and strength to the prohibition cause and movement It will furnish the text for prohibition orators and be an ir­ resistible argument in their hands. A cause whioh can only be resisted, or an argument which can only be answered, by the weapon of tbe murderer, is on the highway 10 success. Such arguments wcaktn the cause in which they are made and strengthen that .against which they are opposed. THK idea of turmng.old officers out and putting new ones in for the sake of a change alone is a mistaken one and such a policy can only be carried out at the expense of eff...

JAMESTOWN, DAKOTA, The national treasury is loaded down with over $130,000,000 gold and $45, 000,000 silver. These sums are far be­ yond any present or prospective re­ quirements of the government and are continually increasing in volume. Bigamy is a crime very much more common among men than among wom­ en, but, occasionally there is a female bigamist with along record of matrimo­ nial experiences. A late trial in New York has attracted a good deal of at­ tention. A woman who now calls her Belf Annie £. Whetmore, was arrested some time ago for bigamy in marrying a man named Hawes, whom she was be­ lieved to know was already married. Her trial lasted several days, and though Hawes turned state's evidence she was triumphantly acquitted. In the course of the trial it came out that the woman, who is not old by any means, had at various times in her ca­ reer and at various places compris­ ing abou...

Oirla Who BTrvar and Girls Who Always Blnah—The Blab Which Ontti pro­ posal. If Adolphus compliments Juliet, and her eyes brighten, her cheek burns, that youth had better analyze his feel­ ings toward her before compulsion is brought to bear, says a writer in the London Stardard. And when she changes color at a gay allusion to the resources of feminine art, he will do prudently to withdraw a little and sur­ vey the damsel critically 'from a post of observation. It is not easy for him to detect the most heartless imposture, if he have tLe inexperience becoming to his years and sex, and she have the sa­ gacity, perhaps equally becoming to hers. Art is very, long, as we know, and in this department it stretches in coils unbroken from the earl­ iest date till now. It mav lie that our enamelers use the methods by which Jezebel painted her face, and certainly our coiffeurs employ the pro­ cess by which Roman girls dyed their hair over two centuries ago. It is prob­ able that smaller arts ...

VOL. VI—NO. 18 THE WEEKLY ALERT. J. C. WAKNOCK, EDITOR. THE irrepressible Judgo Brookings, of Sioux Falls, is now posing as a reformer and independent nnd would accept a seat in tbe territorial legislature. The Judge is somewhat after the style of Butler in politics, having been republican and dem­ ocrat and now a party to himself. As a pointer to his ideas of reform he gives out to the public through his organ, tbe Sioux Falls Leader, that he is ip favor of revising the laws of the territory on al­ most every subject and indicates iny ways in which he "may be useful" to the people as a legislator. The Leader says that "Judge Brookings is not a seeker tor office but will ever be found against such frauds as the election of Raymond two years ago and the majority of the last legislature." The judge will never be able to reconcile the election of Mr. Ray­ mond over himself for delegate two years ago, with the idea that paople are capa­ ble of self government. He said at the time that t...

"I fear not," said Mr. Brief, compas­ sionately, for, althongh a lawyer, and such popularly supposed to be inacces­ sible to the gentler feelings, he had for .years known Mrs. Carlton, and pitied her in her sudden widowhood, aggra­ vated by the unexpected discovery that she was nearly without resources. "Yet the house and grounds are worth -eight thousand dollars—at any rate they cost my husband quite that amount." "No doubt but if thrown upon the market I fear very much they will not bring more than six." "And that is all we have to begin up­ on," said Mrs. Carlton with a sigh.

There has been an increase of prices all round and importers are by no means vdis posed to press sales. Chicago has been investing an amper­ age of about $16,000,000 a year in new buildings, the feature in structural work there this year being tbe number of large and expensive commercial edifices under -way. There is one item that the agricultur­ ist produces that bears relatively high price, and that is, meat. It fol­ lows that the production of beef, mut­ ton, pork and poultry ought to be paying business. With wheat at 60 cents a bushel this matter is worth con­ sideration. It is said that the shrinkage of stocks has reduced Vanderbilt's fortune near­ ly one fourth though he still enjoys a comfortable income, and is not an ob­ ject of commiseration. Another turn iaf the wheel of fortune may restore his stocks to their former...
