Plucky Little North Dakota School
Ma'am Who Knew How to Take
Care of Herself. E't
There is a slip of a girl teaching
school about seven miles northeast
of this city who is entitled to a
Carnegie hero medal if the writer
had his way about it the residents of
Golden Valley would give her a suit
able testimonial.
Her name is Jennie Molloy. She
earns a living in the noblest pro
fession of them allnot even except
ing the expounding of the gospelin
giving the little ones of her country
school a start towards acquiring an
education. She is unable to procure
a room in the neighborhood, so- she
sleeps in the school house, taking her
meals at the home of one of the near
by farmers, and not so nearby, either.
One night last week some one at
tempted to force an entrance to the
schoolhouse, frightening the poor
girl nearly to death. She managed to
escape by one of the windows, and
fled across the snow to the nearest
house, half a mile away, falling
several times and sustaining sundry
bruises. After that she provided
herself with a 32-calibre revolver and
resolved to use it if further molested.
Tuesday morning about 2 o'clock,
she received another visit, presumably
from the same man. He was bent on
forcing an entrance and disregarded
her warning to desist, so she fired at
him and got him. He picked himself
up and made off without revealing
his identity, but early that morning a
fellow by the name of John Witmer of
that locality, rode into Wibaux on a
horse. He was suffering from a gun
shot wound in the head, and was given
surgical attention by Dr. Gaines,
assisted by Dr. O. R. Niece of this
city. The bullet had struck him in
the left cheek and ranged backward
and lodged in his neck, missing the
jugular vein by the smallest fraction
of an inch. The doctors were unable
to get anything from him except the
bullet, but anyone who can add two
and two together and make it come
four can certainly understand how
he happened to get injured.
Here's to Jennie Molloylong life
to her and more power to her arm!

Avalanches Bury Two Towns.
Two snowslides on Sunday night
brought dismay to two rich mining
townsMace and Burkein the
Couer d' Alene district, Idaho, and
killed scores of people. At 10:35
p. m. a huge avalanche plunged down
the mountain side and swept the town
of Mace, with its twenty-five homes
and their sleeping occupants, into
the canyon below, burying them
under thousands of tons of snow. At
5:30 the next morning another slide
rushed down on the town of Burke,
crushing a score or more of houses in
its course. Thirty-five Italians who
were sleeping in an outfit car on the
Northern Pacific siding were swept,
with their car into the canyon below,
but dug themselves out with the im
plements at hand. Many bodies have
been recovered by rescuing parties.
Wm. Cordiner of this village is
working in one of the mines of the
Couer d'Alene district, but is many
miles from the scene of Sunday
night's snowslides. In a recent letter
to his wife he stated that there is no
cessation to the fall of snow in that
countrythat it is snowing all the
time without any indication of
stopping. This winter's snowfall in
the mountains' has been particularly
heavy. Not for sixteen years had
any devastating avalanches been
known in the Couer d'Alene district.
Capt. Boffardas A grain Hits the Bull's Eye.
This world famous rifle shot, who
holds the championship record of 100
pigeons in 100 consecutive shots, is
living at Lincoln, 111. Recently in
terviewed, he says: I have suffered
a long time with kidney and bladder
trouble and have used several well
known kidney medicines all of which
gave me no relief until I started tak
ing Foley's Kidney Pills. Before I
used Foley's Kidney Pills I was
subjected to severe backache and
pains in my kidneys with suppression
and oftentimes a cloudy voiding,
while upon arising in the morning I
would get dull headaches. Now I
have taken three bottles of Foley's
Kdney Pills and feel 100 per cent
better. I am never bothered with my
kidneys or bladder and onoe more
feel like my own self. All this I owe
solely to Foley's Kidney Pills and
always recommned them to mv fellow
sufferers." Sold by all druggists.
