Here, you will observe, pointing to the
map are the buffaloes directly between the
Piegans and Duluth, and here, right on the
road to Dulutli, are tho Creeks. Isow, sir.
when the buffaloes are sufficiently fat from
grazing on those immense wheatticlds you
see it will be the easiest thing in tho work
for the Piegans to drive them on down, stay
nil night with their friends, the Creeks, nnc:
go into Duluth in the morning. Great

sir, l might stand here tor hours anc
hours, and expiate with rapture upon the
gorgeous prospects of Duluth, as depicted
upon this map. But human life is too short
and the time of this House far too valuable
to allow me to linger longer upon the de
lightful theme. I think even' gentleman
on this floor is as well satisfied as I am that
Duluth is destined to become the commer
cial metropolis of the universe, and that
this road should be built at once. I am
fully persu tdiul that no patriotic Iteprcsen-
tativu ot thu American people, who lias a
proper appreciation of the associated clo
ries of Duluth and St. Croix, will hesitate a
moment to say that every able-bodied fe
male in the land between the ages of eigh
teen and forty-five who is in favor of "wo
men's rights" should be drafted and set to
work upon this great work without delay

grieves my very soul to be compelled to say
that I cann )t vote tor the "rant ot lauds

the poigaancv of mv nnmiish that I am

To the People of Prescott
The great staples of wool and cotton wero
never so low as at the present time. Im
proved machinery which has been Intro
duced during the past five years enable tho
manufacturer to produce goods at much less
cast than formerly. The freights havo been
lately reduced from nil points in tho East to
Ehrenberg. Taking nd vantage of these
things I havo selected tho cheapest markets
in tho United States, viz:
NEW YORK AND BOSTON
nnd purchased a stock of
FURNISHING GOODS, OVERALLS,
HATS, BOOTS, SHOES, PIPES,
and a few articles in the DRY GOODS line,
all for cash, paying in currency. I shall bo
satisfied, providing I receive n liveral patron
age, to sell these good at a moderato profit.
I have diilercnt grades or qualities of the
samo article, and will mention a few articles
and tho lowest prices which I can sell them
nt, and invite tho public to call, whether in
want of anything or not, to verify tho truth
of this advertisement. Remember, tims
have changed, and ns tho popular prejudice
runs in favor of lower prices than now, it
