ifiiiM^hnrrr'Ti $ serious WOMAN IS BADLY BURNED. Airs. Chas. Montgomery, wife of A. P. Slocum's popular phar­ macist, was very badly burned by a kerosene lamp explosion at her home in this city Saturday night about 9 o'clock. Mrs. Montgomery had just put her little four year old son to bed and was carrying the lamp into another room when it exploded. She attempted to hang onto the lamp until she could throw it out of doors, but before she reached the door, it had exploded and kerosene was forced all over her body. In a second she was a mass of flames. She ran scream­ ing to the door and cried for someone to roll her in the snow. It happened that a inilk man fwas delivering his milk in that part of town in that moment and he jumped from his wagon and ran to the burning 'woman. He rolled her in the snow and in a short time had the flames out. But she was terribly burned. Her left hand and arm and her face |were very badly burned, though the burns are not very deep, fe# They pained her...

Tasker being located in the center of Ward county's coal fields is bound to flourish. There­ in lies the foundation of Tasker. Inexhaustible mines of wealth, in the shape of lignite coal of the best quality will be the means of putting pillars of prosperity un­ der her. As yet in her "swaddling clothes," and of a few months borning, yet over $50,000 in im­ provements have been inaugurat­ ed here. There is no question of doubt that the Vandewarker coal mine at this place, outside of the Washburn property in McLean county, is the best developed mine in the State, and bids fair in the future to reach unpre­ cedented dimensions. The com­ pany has determined to spare no expense iu its operation, and they are now putting in improve­ ments for the expeditions, min­ ing and shipping of this coal, that will sum up to the total of $100,000. And this is merely a atarter, so to speak. It is saia t'.at this year will witness the inauguration of a briquetting plant at this point, whicn fact in it...

I $. •L 1 '"„r It iy not be out of order to gently inofr that the weather during the past would not cause anyono to thoroughly Toly on North Dakota as a winter resort. In fact there wore days last week when roses wouldn't bloom, nor swallows twitter, nor robins sing and turtle doves coo to their little mates. On the other hand, 'twas Klondike weather, and oft times the thermometer went down to the 20 mark, creating glorious, life-giving ozone that is grand in its health giving qualities. In this connection it may be stated that the report that four men died of colic from eating whiskey that was frozen so hard that it wouldn't thaw in­ side of them, is not true. That the truth is mighty, and will prevail, how­ ever, is evident from the fact that one of tho miners told us that they kept their fires, in the bunk house, over night by putting them out in the air and letting them freeze and then thawad them out in the morning. Good idea, eh? Tho carpenters on the Vandewarker ranks of empl...

W BOY KILLED HIS BROTHER The boys were playing in the liouse after dinner anil Spencer plavfullv took off his cap and threw it at Morton. The older boy retaliated by taking off his coat, rolling it up and hit-ting his younger brother with it. They had thrown the coat and cap at each other several times, when rhe younger brother received a sharp tap across the head with rhe coat, the pocket of which eon taiued something hard, and Spencer thoughtlessly picked up a short wire about a foot long and the size around of a ten penny nail and sent it whizzing through the air at Morton. The wire whirled end for end thru the air and went with considerable torce. One end was sharp and the other blunt. The bluut end struck Morton just above the left ear passing through the thin skull bone and penetrated the brain.
