The people between Marshall and

hear that daily mail service will be

service is of vast importance to the
people along the frontier counties,
and by his untireing effort to secure
the increase Major Strait has once

'wduld try to reduce it to 15,000 if
there were but 1&,000 in it they
would seek tof tut it down to 10,000.

it hardly probable that the Senate

The special Washington corres
spondent of the Pioneer Press has
this to say with reference to our rep
resentative in Congress:
"I will venture to state right here,
a full knowledge df^the value oi
words and tfoeri* meaning", that Ho
fa&J B. Strait, who at present repre
smts the SeecKid Minnesota district,
is-the most popular ntan among
stnd Republicans upon
tbe floor of tne house. He antago
nizes himself to no one. His sound
common sense, affability and ununseat
changing good nature has secured
him the respect and good will of
everyone with whom he has been
brought in contact, not only in
congress but throughout the depart
ments. He appears to work in the
interest of his constituents, not only
because it is his duty as their repre
sentative, but because it gives him
genuine pleasure to serve him. I
hope and trust that iriien the con
vention meets at Shakopee it will be
found that the people of his district
have humored tnemselves by sending
there who will renominate
Major Strait and avert the calami
tous result of a Democrat being elect
ed in his stead."

PETROLEUM V. NASBY,
Two Children meet the Fate of
A terrible story comes from Dix
on, Mo. Mr. Moeneht who lives on
a farm near Dixon, on returning
from a drive to town, missed his two,
little girls, one 8 and the other 5
years old. In searching for them
his attention was directed to a large
trunk by the fact that the tray was
on the floor. He opened the trunk
and found the lifeless bodies of the
little girls still warm and limp. He
tried in vain to recussitate them,
and then telegraphed his wife, a~
teacher one of the St. Louis
schools. It is supposed that the
little girls when they saw their
father coming had jumped into the
trunk to hide and were overcome by
the heat. The faces bore no evidence
of pain or suffering, but were so
bright and smiling that the father
could scarcely believe they were
