De Smet people would liked to have seen a brick or stone buildiug erected by the rail road company, but will have to be satisfied for a great many years with the new frame structure.

Not long after a friend of the prisoner walked up to the city hall and two hours from the time of the arrest Kildee had no more prisoner thau a rabbit. Appearances indicate that the bird had help from the outside. The lock had been opened with a key; no force had been used. The officer has his sus picions as to the identity of the as- Ristaut, but it is too early to mention that part of the matter iu detail. It is a serious matter to take part in a jail breaking, and especially for one on the outside. Kildee will make every effort to land the gentleman who assisted, and also to get the man he had locked up. Pat simply “has his Irish up” aud it will uot down. —The baseball tournament Fri day and Saturday was not so well attended as the management had a right to expect, considering the at traction secured. Renville, Minn., and Hawarden, lowa, played the three games resulting iu the victory for Renville throughout. The score Friday was lfi to 2 iu favor of Ren ville; Saturday morning 5 to 3, and iu the afternoon 10 to 4 in favor of the same team. In the first game the Hawarden team went to pieces in the second inning, giving Ren ville six scores. From such a run Hawarden could not recover. Ren ville outclasses Hawarden iu nearly all respects, although the latter team is composed of good ball play ers for the most part. The umpire in the first two games was a Mr. Hogan, who makes headquarters at Iroquois. The game was altogether too swift for Mr. Hogan. He seem ed to want to be fair iu his decisions, but was out of his class. The last game was umpired by Dan Buckley, of Bryant. Dan did a fair job but the game was a little to swift for him. It was a good exhibition of ball playing even if it was one sided. It certainly deserved a more liberal patronage than was accorded by our people. To maintain the Athletic association, and put up good attrac tions requires the liberal support of our people. An enterprise of that kind cannot be maintained on such patronage as was given this series of games. PIANO CONEST.

Heath intends to leave for Spokane, Wash., about the last o r September to spend the winter. His object in going to that city is relief from asthma, from which he has suf fered more-or less for several years. He has relatives and old friends iu that locality who have been tell ing of cures of asthma by that cli mate. We hope K. J. will find the relief he expects, Word has been received here that Lloyd Blackstone is iu more trouble. That he had forged more paper or otherwise falsely aud fraud ulently received more money and had gone to parts unknown. How bad the matter is we do not know but it is not ltkelv he will get out so easily this time if caught. How some people do blast bright pros pects. —Hetlaud New Era. The above refers to a young man who had more advantages than the average young man. He ahvays en joyed a good home, had a good schooling, and finally secured a good position as stenographer for one of the supreme judges of the state. He committed a forgery, using the name of his employer, but was allowed to escape prosecutioo upon restitution of the money obtained, which was accomplished through his friends. He was given another start in life, but it wan useless. It seems that the path of honesty and industry have no attractions for him. Very Low Rates to Richmond, Va., Via the North-Western Line.
