VVe learn that Mr. «Tohn Parcher of Big Stone City, is lying very close to death of dropsy at the ht Charles hotel in that city. Mr. A. 0. Dodtrp, of Ht. Fatal, came in on Wednesday morning's train for a a short visa with Milbank friends while attending to his business interests at this point. Mr John Wasen, a merchant of Tower City, N. D., and a brother-in-law of Rev. Zimmerman, ot Big Stone, accompanied by the latter whom he is visiting, was enjoying the sights of Milbank today, Sheriff Williams had another bird sent him this week lor his cage. He ha:ls from Day county, his name is Andrew J. Foster, and he is charged with grand larceny—the stealing ot some grips and satchels from the depot at Webster. Charley Glasser. who will be remem bered by Big Stone people as one of the young men who spent his boyhood days in the town by the lake, but who now lives in Minneapolis, was in the city Tuesday. Charley is traveling for a tobacco house, and is out on his first trip. We understand that the city finances have been increased to the extent of some $50 under cover of "Miscellaneous Licenses."' This is hardly up to the amount that it should be, but people ought to leara to be thankful tor small tavors. This little donation is al together due *O the bad habit the HERALD hat* of sticking its nose into other peo ple's business. A little rooting around in this direction sometimes proves a good thing. Ole S. Tholo, who resides near Marvin, has been in the habit when in need of recreation or exercise of indulging in the the fascinating but unlawful amusement of beating the woman whom he led to the bridal altar a lew years ago and pro mised to love, honor and protect. It in needless to say that Mrs. Iholo failed to get the same amount of fun out of this playful feature of Ole's character that her lord and master did, and upon her complaint last Monday the sheriff brought Ole down to the county-seat and into the presence of his honor Justice Pasco, who fined him $r and costs, amounting in oil to about #25. Ole was unable to pay and has been confined in the third A*ard fortress during the week. VVe understand that Mrs. Tholo will ap ply tor a diyorce and thus end Ole s career as wife beater.

MILBANK, S. D., FRIDAY, APRIL 14, 1893. ACt'lUEMTAIi DEATH School Lands Sale. The Body of Frank H. off child Found Near Marvin, Corona* Goodger was summoned on Wednesday afternoon to Marvin, where a telegram announced that the body of an unknown man had been found in the creek about two miles east of Marvin. The coroner took possession of the body, which appeared to be that of a short wiry man of about 30 years of age, and summond a jury composed of James McDowell, Fred Larson and Louis Jann, and had the body removed to the under taking establishment of E. Emanuel in this city yesterday morning, where an inquest was held in the afternoon. The examination indicated that the body was that of a passenger on the eariy morning train going west Tuesday, as the check found in his hat was dated the 10th and marked for Groton. Upon his person were found a silver watch aud chain with a locket upon which was the name Louise, also $1.35 in money, a copy of '1 he Visitor," the offiicial organ ot the A. O. U. W., and a life insurance policy and membership certificate in a lodge of that.order at Wicona, Minn. Also a time book of the Laird, Norton & Co. Lumber firm of the same city, indicating that the man's name was Frank H. Hoff child and that he had been employed by the above firm. A telegram was sent to the A. O. U. W. Lodge at Winona and a reply was received directing that the re mains should be properly cared for and forwarded to that city, and in compliance with this request the Workmen took charge of the body and a delegation of between 40 and 50 escorted the remains to the train. The body was first discovered by the train men ou a west bound freight Wed nesday and from the facts elicited at the inquest it is surmised that the unfortu nate man met his death while passing from one car to another, falling from the car and through the bridge where the body was found. The bridge is 60 or 70 feet high, and the man's leg was broken and the bone sticking through his boot his shoulder blade was also broken, and he probably sustained internal injuries that caused instant death, the body being stiff and frozen when discovered. The coronier's jury returned the following verdict: An inquisition holden at Milbank, Grant county,state aforesaid, on the 13th day of April, 1893, before George H. Goodger, coroner ol said county, upon the body of a person unknown there lying dead, by thejuors whose names are here unto subscribed, the said jurors upon their oath do say: That the person whose body here lies before us, being a passenger upon the cars, upon the C. M. &St. P. railroad on the morning of April 12, 1893, he fell from the cars while they were in rapid motion by the means ol which lie was so bruised and injured that he instantly DIED. JAMES MCDOWELL. FKED LAKSON. LOUIS JANN. The Girl of the Period Is altogether charming, and she is noth ing if not athletic. She must ride, she must row, bowl, play tennis, etc., and do all in a piquant, characteristic way it she would be in fashion. The fads of a typi cal athletic girl are described in a breezy and altogether delightful manner in "The Diary of an Athletic Girl," published in DEMOEEST'S FAMILY MAGAZINE, the May number of which is just received. In the same number is an especially apropos paper about the British Embas sy at Washington, embellished with numerous superb illustrations, including fine portraits of the English ambassador and his family. ''Ladies ot the Adminis tration" is another timely paper, illus trated with portraits of the wives of the President, Vice-President, and members of the Cabinet, "Round About the Columbian Fair "Early Italian Painters" is a chatty descriptive article, illustrated in those far-off days and "The Queen of the May" shows many beautiful views of Central Park on May day. The fiction in this number is especially good. "Society Fads" tells about the newest ideas in the fashionable world all the de partments are full to overflowing with interesting, helpful matter.

Consolidated April 11,1890 Vivian D« IVIonto. The Portage Daily Democrat of last week says: Vivian De Monto and her company of talented artistB were greeted with a large audience at the opera house last even ing, and, it is safe to say no performance of recent date has given better satisfac tion. There is one singularity about their production which is worthy of es pecial mention, and that is its freedom from gags and puns in which common decency is sacrificed tor the purpose of creating merriment. While there is plenty of comedy intermingled with the musical acts, it is all of a pure, refined character, at which the most exacting could take no offence. As an impersonator, Neill Litchfield ranks with the vety best, his mere ap pearance after his first impersonation —"Aunty's Courtship"—being suflicent to put the audience in a roar of laughter Miss Marietta Siegfried, late of the Boston Symphony Club, made a hit with her soprano solos. Her voice is remark ably sweet and clear, and she rendered the most difficult selection with an ease that showed rare culture, coupled with perfect, training. It is beyond the power ot The Desa ocrat's reporter to do justice to the cor net solos nnd duos by A. H. Knoll and Mario McNeil. The reputation of each so thoroughly established, however, that we could add but little to their high standing in this notice. Nothing like it has everjbeen heard here. The organ effect rendered in connection with Miss Sieg field's solo, "When the Old Church Clock: Strikes Ten," was too grand for us to» make any attempt at description. It was perfection. Is fact, they are masters ol the cornet. We were pleased to meet our old' friend J. E. Simmons on the street last Monday. He has been sick for a long time aud is hardly able to get about now, but hopes as mild weather approaches to gain strength and be able to resume bis duties as watchman tor the Milwau kee road in Minneapolis. Mr Simmone was at one time sheriff of Grant county^ South Dakota, and proved an efficient and worthy official. He is also an Odd Fellow and has many friends who will be glad to learn that be is on the road ta recovery.—St. Louis Park Mail. Farm* for Male.
