T^~ *-. I a: fy-. r-, ^liC |p.CVt. BY LiAI13HALL Mc.:LUliE. JAMESTOWN, DA KOTa The dynamite explosions in the new parliament liouse at Quebec have crea­ ted great excitement in Canada. There is an investigation to be had, but the materials for it are very meager. The dynamite and its guilty masters have both disappeared, probably for good. The Irish and French in Quebec are Utterly accusing each other of the crime and serious trouble is apprehended as the result of this exchange of compli­ ments. Vassar female college has graduated, altogether, 596 students. Of this number only 188 have married, or less than one in three. "Vassar grada­ tes" have been supposed to constitute a peculiarly marriageable type, but if the above figures are correct, a large ratio "got left." It is probable that many men are deterred from marrying too much learning of one kind and too -little of another, and that woman's af­ fections rather than her intellect are moat .polentiij in counubial arrangements.

Sfcsrxr- QUEEN VICTORIA'S HOUSEHOLD. A Ketinua of On* Thousand Well-paid Servants—Their Satlea nd Muiei. Nominally the principal officer of the Queens household is the Lord Cham­ berlain, who is ti peer of the realm, draws two thousand pounds a year, and plays a large part at coronations, royal marriages, christenings and fun­ erals. Actually, up to within a recent date, the principal personage in the house­ hold of Queen Victoria was a Scotch gillie,who brought to London his kilt and his bare legs, which always formed a prominent feature in any public appear­ ance of the Queen. There isnot known, at least in modern history, a paralled ta the precise position which John Brown held in the Queen's household. His titte was "Personal Attendant," and he liberally fulfilled it, going out with Her Majesty on whatever errand she might appear, whether driving in state to open a session of Parliment, hurry­ ing in a pony-carriage under the wet skies of Balmoral, or walking or riding amid the ...

THE WEEKLY ALERT. J. C. WARNOCK, EDITOK. CASS county is the eighth wonder in politics. There are four tickets iu the field and it would requite a person who is able to solve a Chinese puzzle to (lis cover which is which and who is who. Another very strange feature of the cam­ paign in that county is that on the re publican ticket for the territorial council is D. H. Twomey, an avowed prohibition ist, and for the assembly W. B. Locklin, wh declares himself in favor of division (if the county, in favor of clipping, as it were, the wing feathers of the city of Fargo and Cass county as a political cen­ ter and stronghold. The latter is also one of tin bolters of two years ago who joined in defeating the election of Maj Edwards who had been regularly nom­ inated at the republican convention for the legislature. This political BaDel comes of Major Edwards going "out of politics" after the Pierre convention, though te is accused of playing a "cold deck" on the Bismarck convention at a some...

THANKS TO TM FOG. "Come over to England to settle down, old man?" inquired Val Forres­ ter, as he lit another cigarette, and lounging back in his comfortable arm­ chair, looked contemplatively up at the ceiling. A conscious smile hovered around the yellow tips of Captain Vivian's mous­ taches. "Well, I don't know," he said slowly. 'Mean to take a look round: and see what is going on." "Whatever you do, eschew good looks. Pleasant enough, I'll allow, if you could keep tliern for your own con­ sumption but an intolerable nuisance, as you can't blind your friends." "Hump! A plain face opposite to you day after day would be deuced un­ pleasant. "Yes, but a beauty is the devil. Poor •Cornwall never got over it, when his wife had once become the fashion.

A STRANGE STORY. A dejected man, M. de docteur Maurice Fournier locked the door of his physiological laboratory in the Place de l'Ecole de Medicine, and walked away toward hia rooms in the Rue Rossini. At 32, rich, brilliant, au ambitious graduate of l'Ecole de Medi­ cine, an enthusiastic pupil of Claude Bernard's, a devoted lover of science, and above all of physiology, yesterday he was without a care save to make his name great among the names of science —to win for himself a place in the fore­ most rank of the followers of that mis­ tress whom only he loved and worshiped. To-day a word had swept •way all his fondest hopes. Trousseau, the keenest observer in all Paris, for­ merly his father's friend, now no less his own, had kindly but firmly called his attention to himself, and to the mal­ ady that so imperceptibly and insidi­ ously fastened itself upon him that un­ til the moment he never dreamed of its approach. He had been too full of his •work to think of himself. In any othe...

When very young he came to Wash­ ington County, Maryland., and there married a lady of beauty and excellent family. At this time he read and stud­ ied much, taking a deep interest in gen­ eral literature, especially poetry and novels. After living happily over a year with his wife, becoming embarrassed, he took the benefit of the bankrupt act, was arrested on a charge of fraudulent insolvency and placed in jail. His de­ voted wife shared his confinement dur­ ing the six mouths in which he had to remain in jail awaiting trial. Upon final trial he was acquitted. But after this there began to appear on the surfaco some of the tigerish ele­ ment which lurked in his system. He went to St Louis, was arrested there his wife, still loving and cleaving to him, effected a compromise by which he was released. Then he went to Cincinnati, but got into trouble, and taking his wife with him he repaired to ...

While in some respects, perhaps in many, Mr. Storey was not a model newspaper man in a moral view of the case, in many others he was, as is evidenced by other papers, not excepting the Pioneer Press, following in his footsteps. He reduced news gather­ ing to a system and almost to a science aud surpassed all competitors in this de­ partment. The P.

A Gambling-House Episode. I once -witnessed aa occurence in a ^New York faro bank which I shall nev­ er forget as long as I live. Among the regular customers of the gtime there was a young man who held a position in his father's office, a prominent down­ town merchant. Although tie was neith­ era cool nor a lucky player, and rarn ly left the table a winner, he still con­ tinued to frequent the gaming-table for no other purpose than to appease an insatiable appetite. Tims tbe young player naturally lost considerable mon­ ey, and his father having discovered liis haunts, sent word to the proprie­ tors of tho game, forbidding them to ad­ mit his fion in the future. But the parties thus cautioned failed to pay any attention to this notice, and the young man continued coming. One afternoon, about 5 o'clock, while lie was sitting at the table playing, the bell rang and the negro servant ad­ mitted a tail, venerable-looking gentle­ man, whose hair was as white as snow. He stepped up to the...
