THE MOURE AM CANTON PLOWS. Complimentary. The Northwestern Christian Advo cate of Chicago, the leading religious paper in the northwest has the follow ing to say of our late camp-meeting: The first camp-meeting at Big Stone lake, Dak., closed July 2V, and next day the minister and other friends were tendered an excursion up Big |Stone lake, thirty miles. A picnic tdinner and enjoyable time was shared by all. The camp grounds are in a most beautiful grote, one, and a half miles from Big Stone City, l)ak., and the same distance from (Jrtonville, Minn. The lake is thirty miles in length by a mile in width, and delight ful sheet of water. The camp-meet ing was gotten up by llev. Whitfield and llartsough,and three young men of Big Stone. Messrs. Neill. Simonds,and McGiverin, who made all preparations for this, tneir first effort in this direc tion, and much credit is due them for the complete arrangments and success of the meeting. The first sermon was preached by liev. L. Jlartsough, of Siuux Falls, and the last by llev. Wilmot Whitfield, of Yankton, su perintndent of Dakota mission. Be side a number of Dakota preachers, there were present llev. Stowers, of Mankato district Bev. Bell, of Urton ville Kev. Richardson, of Iowa and Col. E. S. Ormsby, of Iowa, the gospel singer. The meetings from first to last where characterized by deep in terest, and a number of conversions where experienced. The church was baptized and quickened, and a general time of rejoicing shared. Six hund reds person where present on the last day. The first camp-meeting at Big Stone will long be rembeiubered. Preparations for next year are al ready being made and looked forward to with much interest by the people of this section. Again. The people of northern Dakota are not generally aware of thu existence in Huberts county of as attractive a summer resort as there is in the west. Big tone lake stretches itself along the eastern boundary of that country. It is a beautiful sheet of water, fringed vritli a heavy growth of timber and studded with shady islands. It is yet in the rough, about as nature leit it, but this condition adds to its attractiveness. Tills resort has just been brought into prominence Uy the Methodist camp meeting held on its banks, under tiie auspices of Dakota churches, which was a pleasant and successful affair. Big Stone will some day become the riUlying point of the wearied denizens ot thu heated cities, but to be seen at its best it must be .»eeu in its primitive solitude. The arts of man can never improve upon the original edition.—Pnss & Dako taiau. The 40tli I'nrallel Affniu. The Richland County Gazette has the following correction to make in regard to the locating of the 46th par allel or the northern boundary ofltob erts county: A clerical or typographical error 'occurred last week in our location of the 4rtth parallel. We said it|was feet south of the south line of town ship 130." We should have said," TWO SKt'TioNs and tV2f feet south of the south line of township 130." BAI.LOT'S MAr.AZINEforSeptember contains a long installment of the pop ular story of tiie day. The Belle of Australia," by William H. Themes, author of "A Slaver's Adventures," "The Bushrangers," and other noted works. In this number Irish Mike makes his appearance at the mines of Ballarat just in time to take a hand in a little rew that the hero is having with three disagreeable miners, who claim a nugget of gold that does not belong to them. There is quite a lively little shindy for a while, and it ends in a proper manner, as the reader will discover. The Chief of the Melbourne Police has something to say. and departs, a disappointed man, for he can't find the girl lie is looking after, while Mother Iliggins frees her mind in a manner that shows her husbands must have had a lively time with her while living. There is much in Ballou that should com mand attention, as it has some ex cellent stories besides The Belle," and there i« no magazine in the coun try that has such a variety of matter, —poetry, engravings, and humorous reading, ladies' departments, and fashions.
