A TITLE GUUB. Maybe It was the Sunday ten Maybe the SundaT sermdn Perhaps 'twas but a plain alghfmare— I never can determine.

Whose lofty mien ana stately tread Proclaimed his high condition.

deleft. BY ABSHALL MoCLURE. JAMESTOWN, DAKOTA. Edison-, the great electrician, has an income of £100,000 per aiinum from liis inventions, and spends the largest portion in experiments. There is 110 doubt that the pesti­ lence in Spain is the Asiatic cholera. The monster travels fast and there is renewed alarm in our Atlantic ports and pressing calls for quarantine and sanitary work. The summer resorts are not throng, ed at the present time, and the pros­ pect is not the best. Cold weather has had a great deal to do with this con­ dition so far in the season, and there is an indisposition to spend money away from home. Last year the wheat crop of Ken­ tucky was estimated at 13,500,000 bushels. This year, the Kentucky commissioner writes: "The wheat crop is in a deplorable condition. The state will scarcely produce 3,000,000 1 uisliels, and may fall below that. The fac.t is, our wheat crop does not do serve to be dignified by being called a crop." Brazil has decided upon a pro­ gramme...

(it CC/C VOIi. VIII.—NO. 3. Wtll"*T T- McOLVBE. J. O. WABMOOK. Propria tot Editor THE state of Kentucky can always be depended upon for feuds and shooting sensations. Feuds seem to be the princi­ pal inbe'itance of one generation from another, and like dynamite, only wants a jar to cause an explosion. Kentucky ob­ tained the sobriquet of the "dark and bloody ground" in its early history and it has maintained it ever since even against the competition of llie state of Texas. A person must posses* a charmed life to live out a natural life tune in Kentucky, es­ pecially if any of liis ancestry had trouble with any one whose descendants are liv­ ing. It is against public policy for them to inflic^ ctpital .punishment for murder as it would depopulate the state. Iowa papers are kicking against the nuisance of meteoiological terms by which every electrical disturbance or violent storm is called a cyclone or hurricane thereby giving the state an unenviable reputation abroad.

•iKi, «OME HOW OR OTHUK. BT GEORGE DENEIt. ., Life has a burden for every man's shoulder, One may escape from its troubles and care, Mtss it In youth and 'twill come when your'e older, .And fit us as close as the garment we wear. Sorrow conies into our lives uninvited, Robbing our hearts of their treasures of song Lovers grow cold and friends are slighted, Yet some how or other we worry along. Every day toil is every day blessing, Though poverty's cottage and crust we may share, Weak is the back on which burdens are press­ ing. But stout is the heart that is strengthened by prayer. Somehow or other the path grows brighter, JuBt as we mourn there are none to befriend, Hope in the heart makes the burden seem lighter, And somehow or other we get to the end.
