Ivearcher, which was being driven by Frauois Croal Wed nesday, near the railroad crossing at the mill, took fright at a locomotive letting off steam and turning around ran into the fence at II. Hollands place. One of the horses was so badly injured that it had to be killed, and the other one was also seriously hurt. Mention was made some time ago of the arrival ot a number of young Eng lishmen who came direct from the old country to start in farming in this coun y under the au.^pic s of G. Clark, who is acting as agent for the families 6end ng the young men, and seeing that they get started right. The first of the week another of these young gentlemen arrived, and he has been taken out to the Hawk Valley stock farm to be initiated into Dakota farming. The beautiful weather we are enjoying is probably a '•tempering of the wind to the shorn lamb." A mild winter will prove a grand blessing to thousands of Dakota people this winter and also to live stock in many cases. The Decem ber weather so far could not have been more desirable if it had been made to order, and a long continuance of the same kind will not prove monotonous to anyone. Dakota is the only place on earth where you can get just ihese kind of winter days, and we don't always gei them here. Some very fine sets and pieces of sil verware at X. J. Bie-ier's.

At the recent term of the circuit court application was made for the removal of the injunction resting upon the old Beehive building, which was placed upon it by order of the court last summer when it was used for saloon purposes. The court gave orders that the injunc tion should be lifted upon the payment of costs, and also that the liquors and other effects which were seized at the time be destroyed, and the latter order was complied with by the sherilf on Saturday. The building has been leased by J. D. Burkhardt, who will remove his feed store to it as soon as he can secure possession. Hie latest Wood Bros. straw burning stoves at We understand that one of the Russian colony, Joe Keller, has again been at his old trick of wife-beating for which he has herertofore been arrested and punished. It is stated that the fellow sold a cow which the woman had pur chased by doing washing, and with the proceeds has been filling up on red liquor and pounding his helpmeet with out mercy. As the law has not seemed to have any effect on Joseph's desire to practice the pugilistic art on his wife, there has been strong talk of organizing a se'f appointed committee who will take Joseph in hand and in a very for cible manner teach him the evil effects that are likely t» follow his bad habit. If such a thing is done the culprit will have no sympathy from any source, and the lesson should be administered in such a manner that hereafter he wili have no inclination to give cause tor it3 repitition. Sheriff Williams departed Monday night for Sioux Falls, taking with hiua the prisoner H. J. Clark, who goes there to serve the state for one year. This same Clark we understand has an iu dictmeut hanging over him in Minne haha county. Generally speaking he has Dot been a useful citizen while at large and it is hoped that in his new quarters the state will get some service from him. His last escapade was an attempt afttr conviction to break jail. He hid procured a piece of iron and by chop ping the mortar away had succeeded in removing the first layer of bricks, but the second layer was too hard or him and he had to give up the job. When it was discovered Clark first asserted that it was the prisoner Henry Zeka who did it, but when Zeka was brought in the former refused to appear against him and the probability is that Zeka, who was only in for a week,had no more to do with it thin a guiltv knowledge of the attempt to the work. To the Public. Milbank, S. D., Dec. 10,1894. I was told some time ago by the divi sion Sup't that I must request every one to enter tho freight office at the north door and do their business at the counter that was built for that purpose, instead of going inside of office at the doors in tended for private entrances. During his last visit here he repeated his request in a manner that could not be misunder stood. This is nothing more than right and every right minded person will ac knowledge it if he stops to think. I hope that every one, both old and young, will remember this, as I am sure no one would wish me to be censured for any thoughtlessness on his part. Now a word to parents. The matter of smail boys frequenting the station grounds, referred to by the local press a short time ago, is quite important. I have frequently driven boys away from the station at train time. More than one boy has had a narrow escape from beiug injured. I hope the parents will take this matter in hand as I have uo (Jesire to assist in picking up any of their boys ma basket. W. O.Ckau*, LOST, Sometime during the month of Nov ember, 1894, several promissory notes? one of which was signed by Jacob Bue ster for $45 and one by M. B. Baird fur $19, both da'ed during the fall of 1S93, aud payable to the undersigned. The parties are hereby notified not to pay said notes should they be presented tor payment. Dk. C. E. Daniels MUbants.0. D., Dec. 10,1894, There is good deal of talk about starting new parties just now—"organiz ing" new parties says the Sioux City Journal. Nothing is easier than to start a party. Few industries have been more fully* developed. Hundreds and thousands ol new parties have been start ed since we began our national existence. But most of them haven't amounted to much. As a rule the people range themselves into iwo principal parties and it temporarily they seem to divide into more numerous groups they soon find that it is unprofitable and rearrange themselves into the traditional two big parties. And what has been is very likely "to be, in spite of cranks, reformers sore heads and eccentricities of all sorts. Advices from Topeka show that the farmer's alliance in that state has fallen to pieces. Many counties are not re presented at the state convention, ar.d there is lack of interest everywhere. From an organization for the benefit of farmers it has degenerated into a politi cal outfit and has lost 6ight entirely of its original purposes. Catholic Services.

A gentleman who went into the woods region ou a hunting excursion aud "put up" at a farmhouse in a remote clearing was annoyed during the daytime with the abundance of fiies that found access to tho house. But when twilight of evening camo he was treated to an exhi bition of fly catching that more than re paid him for his vexation. The windows were opened as tho darkness settled down, and the hostess' tallow clip only partially dispelled the gloom in tho old fashioned kitchen, when he suddenly became aware of odd creatures darting to and fro iu tho room, often coming al most into his face, while a queer little noise of "snip, snip, snip," seemed to follow their velvety fluttering motions. For an instant ho was startled, not knowing what to inaku of such intrud ers. "It's only tho bats, "said the lady quietly as she pursued her work. "They are catching flies. Don't you.hear 'em snip off their wings? There'll bo hun dreds of fly wing3 on the floor here in tho morning." Tho gentleman arose early and looked for tho wings, and suro enough the floor and tables wcro littered with thein.— Lewiston Journal. The Fortune Hunter's Dilemma.

Rules to Regulate Our on due*. A man should bo wise in dispute, a lion iu the bsttlo aud conflict, a teacher in his household, a counselor in the na tion, an arbitrator in his vicinity, con scientious in action, content with his stato, regular in his habits, diligent iu his calling, faithful in his friendship, temperate iu his pleasure?, deliberate in his speech, devoted to his God. So he will be happy in his life, easy iu his death and an esteemed example to liia successors.—New York Ledger. A chapel in honor of St Paul gave a new name to the Minnesota city. It was originally called Pig's Eye, from a nickname given to a one eyed French man who kept a drinking shanty at the place.
