Faumingios, Jan. 5, 1884.—-Agreeable to my promise to you I forward you a few items with regerd to horses at Faiming ton. To commence with I have seen weaher a little more balmy and a little more pleasant than this Saturday morn ing with the thermometer at 30 degrees below, but it is a grand time to look at horses. You do not have to bore the I • :r with a request that this one and i : A out to tha halter, or hitched up aofsd to ouit your convenience. You ?ay to the owner as he asks would you like toe this hitched up? Oh, no, life is to f^hortandl know he is threatened with speed and bis breeding is so good that he car. not help but trot. You are perfectly 'jed to see him in his stall to see him uncovered just for a moment, or to see one-half dczen turned lo,-t out in the field and see them play ; f ever a horse shows aft* well it is in a gojd zero morning; but at the same time you want to be encased in a good warm fcr coat, cap, scsrf, and feet well protect ed. '.Vith thi3 introductory I will ask you to ilhmeone mile northwest of Farm on to the breeding farm of Porter Mnrfin, well known in our state, not only ireeder but a trainer and handler of horses. At the head of Mr. Martin's stud last j ear stood Archer's Almont, by Al monr, firBt dam Pearly Leonard by Ameri-, Slay. A horse well known for a young He has a record of got at Red Wing, made v,;:cn be was G years old. Alraont i '.en well patronized in this vicinity, fo- Hie past three years and soon ws shall see how speedy his youngsters are. They certainly look premising at this date. Almont has been retired from tho stud and has been placed in the han^s of Mr. McMil of An stir, where barring accidents, he e .-ent for record. Knowing ones expect him to place a iow record to his credit. Mr. McMillan also takes with him two very fine colts by Almont, coming two years-old this spring, which will be han died for speed and will be entered in the two-year-old races the ooming season. The da jj; of these colts are pac9rs as well as their grand dams, but their gait is purely trotting. If ever there were ooltsthat promised well, these are the ones, and we say to thoee that calculate to pnttwo-year ■f.yl-o laio training to not forget that they have got to have colts that are sure enough trotters. So much for the three that Mr. Martin has put into the hands of the trainer. Mr. Martin will place Administrator at ths head of his stud. He was got by Admin istrator. Dam by .Miner's Denmark. This etallion will be eight years old next spring i=sagoodone, and his get, so far, .iusewell. He is also a fine trotter himself. His eldest oolts are now four years old. I noticed last soason an extra good one owned by the heavy man at Daudas. E. T. Archibald, of Dundas, also has a crack pair. Another good ono and as good as any I think is tho ooit owned by Mr. Elliott near the custom house in St. Paul. Mr. Martin has some fine ones by him that will soon mature. There is no question but that Administrator will make a big season. Mr. Martin is wintering twenty-four of the horse kind, and the person that wants a good road horse, as well as a speedy one, that cannot suit himself at Mr, Martin's 1b hard to euit. X. About the Facers. [Turf, Field and Farm, Jan. 4.] Fashions change in horses and their gaits as well a=* in other things. Goodj old Hiram Woodruff said: "A trotting horse is so much more valuable than a paoer, that if I had one of the latter that could go in 2:20,1 should watoh carefully for the chance to make a trotter of him." Aud now we have it stated that a prominent western stable proposes to let a 2:20 trof ter go baok to her old way of pacing. Tho Iro.ter, as in Hiram's day, is still the more valuable, but rhe side-wheeler has oertainly picked up wonderfally in public estima tion in the past three or four years. After each shining lights as Hero, Oneida Chief, James K. Polk and Pocahontas had illumined the turf at various periods; there were few bright stars iu the paoing firmament, and a cloud obscured this sport for a long time, but Sleepy George, Bay Sallie, Sweetzer and Clinker revived mat ter?, and then Sleepy Tom, Rowdy Boy, Lucy and Mattie Hunter got up a boom in 1879 that has lasted ever sinoe, so that now the pacing race of the Grand circuit is one of its principal features, and the pacer promises to take a more commanding po sition than ever during the ooming year. If a pacer is fast he is generally very fast, and the past season has shown quite a number of rapid goers. In fac, they compare more than favorably with the trotters, for if we take the foremost six of of each in 1883 we find the record as fol lows: Jo'.iaeton 2:10 2:10% Jay Eye Soe. Buffalo Girl....2:121^ 2:15>| PbalJas. Richball 2:12,% 2:16 Trinkett. Flora Bell 2:13% 2:16V 4 ' Wilson. Fuller 2:13% 2:16% St. Julien. Gem 2:18% 2:17 Majolica,4c In addition to the above half dozen, We-etmont paced in 2:15^, and Billy S. in 2-.16;?4, while the others to beat 2:20 were Eddie D., (2:17^), Jim Jewell (2:19^), and Princess, (2:19^). The two most busy during the year were Richball and Westmont. Each commenced early and kept it up late, passing through an arduous campaign, many of the races in whioh the former wa3 en gaged being split up into several heats. Itiohbail credited with fifty-seven winning j heats in 2:30 or better, all but eight of j whioh were better than 2:25,and thirty-four j better than 2:20. In number of heats, j Westmont follows With thirty-seven, but in i many of his races the son of Almont so! far overshadowed his competiors that the '■ contests were decided in straight heats. These two, with Johnson, should make a great trio the coming season. We think that neither has got to the end of his .'haher, and if Johnson does not lower his , own time (and we think him quite capable IIo'.Dg so,) some other horee wi'.l prot y do it for him. WILLING TO MATCH HIM. '. 8. Campbell thinks that in Bichball he has the fastest horse in the world, and in support of his opinion eay3 he will matoh him against any trotter or pacer for from $5,000 to §10,000 ajside, the track to be mutually agreed upon. He and the pacer Fritz have been out on grass in Texas ainc9 the Fort Worth meeting and will be taken up after the holidays. Here is a chance for some enterprising secretaries to open negotiations. Even if none of the owners of fast stock care to make Buch a matoh, a large enough purse might be offered by same association for Jay-Eye-See,JohDson and Richball, or any two of these. The Spirit of the Times. This well known and valuable paper gives the following programme of what it will do in the next three months: A rare feast is in store for those who ait at the table of The Spirit during the next three months. While all oar regular de partments are maintained in their fell vigor, the firat edition of the new year will be noteworthy for the introduction of sev eral Bpecial featureB. Chief among them is, "These Oar Aotors," a series of biogra phioal and aneedatal sketches of our fa mous aotors and dramatists, compiled and edited by George J. Manaon. These sketches are copyrighted, and will subse quently be published in book form. Next •omes "The Crnise of the Waterwitoh," a yachting story, fresh as the breezes, and bright as the sunlit waves of the Great lakes on which this voytge was made. Then Col. Thomas Pioton, the veteran jour nalist, the man of microsoopio memory, will resume his charming sketches of "old time" New York, beginning next week with Mitchell's Olympic theater. The devotees of the running turf will welcome "Vigi lant's" series of "Winning Sires," commen cing with Bonnie Scotland, who leads Bil let by a marvelously small majority. Trot ting turf smen will find a series of interst ing and instructive tables, beginning with 2:30 trotters of 1882, followed by 2:25 trot ters, the live 2:30 list, and the complete 2:30 catalogue, arranged under their sires. For the amateur athletes we shall furnish oomplete tables of best-on-record perform ances in England and America, corrected up to date, beginning with running, and eonlinumg with walking, hurdling, jump ing, weight throwing, akating, swimming, and all sorts of miscellaneous outdoor and indoor games. Sale of Tftorouahbreds. Jamee B. Prather, Maryville, Mo., has bonght of John Loche, Huntington, Ind., the following thoroughbreds: Zulu br. m. foaled 1872, bred by J. M. Clay by Rivoli, dam Zara by imp. York shire. In foal to a trotting horse. Betty Harper, b. m. foaled 1868, bred by the late John Harper by Endorser, dam Sue Lewis (sister to Asteroid) by Lexing ; ton. In fonl to Kivoli. Lida Leroy, b. m., foaled 1872, bred by [the lato A.K.Richards, by Gilroy, dam Monomania (dam of Mona, Monopoly, i sto.) by Melbourne, Jr. In foal to Ri voli . Sallie Davis, b. m., foaled 1872, bred by ' John M. Clay, by Star Davis, dam Sally of ' the Valley (dam of Essilah), by Austerlitz. Ti foal to Rivoli. lirown fiily, foalsd 1-8?, bred by John Roohe, by Rivoli, dam Maggie Woods, by Endorser. The Breeding of Arab, The five year old bay gelding Arab, that made a record of 2:24^ the past season, has all along been • accepted as by Elec tioneer, out of Lady Hamilton, but it now seems from the California Breeder and Sportsman that he is rerJly by Gen. Benton. Thr.t paper says: In 1877 F. S. M&ione sent r. number of mares to be brad to the Palo Al!o stallions, two of them being Nettie George, by Norfolk, and her daugh ter, Lady Hercules. From the name it is probable tho latter was by imp. Hercules, though one C2n only infer that this was the oaee. Mr. Maions had a mare at Mr. Corbiti's ranch called Lady Hamilton, which was bred to one of Mr. Oorbitt's stallions. A bill was r.ted and paid by Mr. Malone for the service of the stallions at Palo Alto, and one of the items was a charge of $100 for the services of General Benton to Lady lies, a»>d the tother items, in all amounting to $700, servioes of Electioneer, General Benton find Mohawk Chief. Now fur. Malone avers that Arab is from Lady Meroulos, that he saw him when a suckling at tho aide of hi* dam, and noted par ticularly the mark? which distinguished him. We have not a partiole of doubt that this is oorr*aet, and that being granted; ths bill rendered fixes the paternity on General "Benton. And still there Is a chance that Lady Hercules was bred to Electioneer, and in making the transcript there was a clerical error. The testimony of the books and that of the stud groom will dear this point, and now that the maternity has been absolutaly fixed, there can be little trouble in completing the chain. The strong point in Arab being an Electioneer is his resemblance to the colts of that horse and the divergence from the general type of the Bentons. The conformation is so similar to that of the colts of the form er that it strikes a superficial observer, and then again, the thoroughbred blood of his dam may have so modified the charac teristics of the Bentons as to give the lines cf the maternal ancestry. Goldsmith Maid, 2:14. John B. Deoker of Deokertown, Sussex county, N. J., recently discoursed as fol lows concerning the early days of Gold smith Maid: When I owned the Maid she was just one of the worst pieces of horse flesh as a young filly)that I ever laid eyeB on. Only for exercise she'd jump every fence on the farm. I tried to take some of the spirit out of her by plowiDg corn with her, but it was no nee. Her dam was an Abdallah mare, a half Bister toO! Rysdyk's Hambletonian, and she could tr t a full mile better than '40 to an . ,d fashioned road wagon, for I drove her le peatediy under that notch myself. She foa1.- ed Goldsmith Maid to Edsall's Hambletoni an in 1857, and, as I said before, the young thing was wild as a hawk. I sold her for $350 to Thoma3 Brigham and J. H. Deok er, cf Newburg. They in turn sold her for $600 to William Denton, known as "Jersey Bill," and from him Allen Gold smith purchased her for $900 and a wsgon. Goldsmith hired Bill Bodine, of Middle town, to train her, and he and his help had their hands full, I tell you. It used to i take four of the boys to hook her np, and several times she nearly killed Bodine. Bat when he tamed her she gave trouble no longer* and afterward W.H. Doble pur chased her for $5,000 in partnership with "'Budd." Her snbsequent triumphs and sale to Henry N. Smith are matters of comparatively recent history. Miscellaneous. Mr. Dan Woodmansee, the general man i ager of Commodore Kittson's string of i trotters, left last night for Cincinnati. J. D. Rockefeller, New York city, has i purchased for a mate to Midnighi, record '■ 2:14 1-6, the gray mare Kate McCall, record j 3:23 by Blue Bull. Dr. S. Driggs, Lexington, Ky., lost last week the bay horse The Dentist, six years old, by George Wilke3, dam by Westwicd, from inflammation of the bowels. B. J. Treacy, Ashland park, Lexington, HE ST. PAUL DAILY GLOBE, MONDAY MOKNIflG, JAKUABY 7 j884 Ky., has sold to eastern parties the bey colt Avonmore, four years old, by Almont Chief, dam Oneida by Royal George. J. C. Hunter, Union, 8.C., ha3 purchased the ohestnut" horse Gov. Hampton, foaled 1874, by Planet, dam Merry Wave by Jonce Hooper, her dam Emily by imp. Glencoe. Messrs. Stanhope Bros., South Ell born, Ky., have sold to C. B. Allaire, Peoria, III., the stallion Voltaire, record 2:20J4, bay, foaled 1868, by Tattler,dam Yonng Pcrtia by Mambrino Chief. J. C. Ferran, Glenview stock farm, Lou isville, Ky., has purchased from J. R. Graham, Boston, Mass., the bay mare Ten ey, foaled 1875, by Harold, dam Sue Dud ley by Edwin Forest. J. B. Sellers, Lexington, Ky., has sold to Richard Owings, Lexington, Ky., for an other party, the bay gelding Mammonish, foaled 1877 by imp. Buokden, dam Mono mania by Melbourne, Jr. Dr. L. Herr, Forest Park, Lexington, Ky., has sold to Mr. Hill, Boston, Mass., the chestnut colt Gip Anderson, four-yearg old by Mambrino King, out of Ellen Acd*rson'i dam, by Morgan Rattler. Dr. L. Herr, Forest Park, Lexington, Ky., has sold to Mr. Hill, Boston, Maes., a pair of gray roadsters, three-year-old fillies by Longbow, (son of Mambrino Patchen,) dam one by Bald Hornet, the other pacing mare. Messrs. C. R. Tipton, Cadiz, Ohio, and Capt. C. D. List, Wheeling, West Virginia, have purchased from Major P. P. Johnston, Lexington, Ky., the brown colt, with star, foaled June 13, 1882, by Commodore Wilkes, dam by Darlbay, son of Mambrino Patchen. This is a nice, level headed celt, and promises to make a trotter. At a meeting of the club on December 29, the new rules of racing passed by the Louisville conference were adopted. The new rules have now been adopted by the ten olubs represented at Louisville, name ly: New Orleans, Brighton Beaoh, St. Louis, Washington park Chicago, Chioago Driving park, Latonia, Memphis, Nash ville, Louisville and Lexington. A. J. Alexander, Woodburn faim, SpriDg Station, Ky., shipped to John Coriigan, Cleveland, Ohio, the following trotters; Chestnut colt, three yeas old, by Jim Fisk, dam a Canadian mare; brown oolt, three years old, by Belmont, dam a pacing mare; bay or brown filly, two years old, by Bel mont, dam a pacing mare; bay or brown filly by Belmont, dam a pacing mare. J. T. Megowan, Mt. Sterling, Ky., has purchased the bay stallion Magic, record 2:33, foaled 1867, by American Clay, dam Lualaba (dam of Roger Hanson, 2:28%), by Berkley's Edwin Forrest; 2d dam by Grey Eagle, &o. Magic has four repre sentatives In the 2:30 list—Clemmie G., 2:17; Post Boy, 2:13)4; Mystery, 2:24%, and Keno, 2:23%. The first three are out of one mare, Ned, who was also by Berk ley's Edwin Forrest. Madame Rumor says Bob Miles will be ridden in the Kentucky derby by the well known jockey Hughes. Should this be true the chances for Bob Miles to win tbo classic event will be greatly en hanced and his backing increased. It is yet too early for predictions, but seme of !-:Eov;;n^ ones" have an eye on Fob Allies as the probable winner, and Mr. Williams is reported as having refused large offers for the colt on the faith of his prospects. The great ra ce mare Thora, the property of Mr. Charles Reed, Fairview Stud, Tenn , after breaking down in the Louisville Cup ths past spring, was bred to imp. Fechter, and is now heavy with foal. Thora's baby will be watched with a great deal of inter est, and it is to be hoped good luck will attend the mare. Henlopon, by Aristidee, the half sister of Thora, both being out of Susan Ann, by Lexington, has also been bred to Fechter. The bay horse FoxhalJ, the properly of Mr. J. R. Scene, New York, has [recently arrived at the Ley borne Grange Stud Farm, the property of Mr.Thosar^ Phillips and will be used there as a stallion. Fox hail was foaled in 1878 by King Alfonzo, dam Jamaica, by Lexington; 2d dam Fan ny Ludlow, by imp, Eclipse, out of Mollie Jackson, by Vandal. As a race horse he waa one of the best that have appeared on the English turf for many years, and his stout breeding should make him a very de sirable stallion for English mares. Tne turf career of Foxhall was a brilliant one, and in the stud, with proper opportunities it is reasonable to expect him to be one of the leading sires of England. Spirit of the Times; It is well known that Mr. W. H. Vanderbilt and Mr. Frank Work, in consequence of a disagreement of long standing, never speak as they pass by, and the breach has been widened late ly by Mr. Vanderbilt discovering among the papers of his father a due bill cf §5,000, signed F. Work. On payment be ing demanded end refused, Mr.V. instruct ed his lawyer to enforce its oslleotion. Mr. Work then went to work rummaging his business archives, and found a check en dorsed by the late commodore, whioh he claims satisfied the above indebtedness, and he has commenced legal proceedings against Mr. Vanderbilt for bringing a groundless action, with intent to injure his credit. Boston Herald: Mill Boy and Blondme have reoently been joined by a stable com panion. On Christmas morning, Mr. John Shepard, of this city, looked in on his double-team favorites, and was aston ished to find a strange horse in one of the stalls of his private stable. On closer in spection, he found on the horse a oard bearing the greeting, "A Merry Christ ines," and next discovered that the ac quisition to his stable was the beautiful bay stallion Harry Rolf, 6 years old, 15% hands high, Bired by Lambert, and raised in Waterville, Me. The horse has no record, but is said to have show a mile better than 2:25, and a year or two ago Mr. Shepsrd offered $6,000 for him. Harry Rolf will in all probability be driven double with Mill Boy. Turf, Field and Farm: Leonatue, the great son of Longfellow, winner of the Blue Ribbon at Lexington, the Kentuoky Derby at Louisville, the Hindoo Stakes at Latonia and of the l'linois Derby at Chi cago, and whose triumphahl turf career was suddenly brought to a close at Long Branch through the wrench of a tendon, is now taking gentle work at Harrods burgh, Ky., and hopes are entertained ihat that he will again be seen at the post. The fore leg has been blistered four times and support thus given to the sprung oord, and the horse goes sound. He is walked, jogged and cantered every day on so't ground, and has a keen relish for the work. He will not be started unless his owners are pretty confident of his ability to win, because they do not wish to send him to the stud a beaten and disgraced horse. If he continues to improve, how ever, there will be no lack of confidence. The stabie to which Leonatus belongs will I come no further east next summer than ! Snratoga.

S. M. THE MILITARY OBGAXIZATIOX OX" THE STATE OF MINNESOTA. The First Regiment and Its Ten Companies —The Emmet Z.I<bt Artillery—Meeting: •of the National Guard State Association This Week. The First Beglment. The legislature of 1883 passed a law de nominated the "Military Code," by the pro visions of whioh the National Guard was declared to consist of two regiments of in fantry and a battery of artillery. 3y an order cf the commander-in-chief, issued in February, the Fir3t battalion was desig nated as the First regiment and the Sec ond battalion as the Second regiment. As the latter is composed of companies lo cated in the southern p»rt of the state we shall confine this artiole to the First regi ment. Ths First battalion, from which, fie we have already etated, the First regiment was organized, was formed in February, 1882, of the following companies, viz.: The Minneapolis Light infantry, the Min neapolis zouaves, the St. Paul guards and the Allen Light guard. An election fcr a major and for stall officers was held on the 23d of February, 18»2, and resulted in the election of Capt. W. B. Bend, of the St. Paul guards, ai major, Lieut. 8. A. Sims, of the Minneapolis Light infantry, as ad jutant, Private Jas. Davenport, Jr., of the St. Pan! guards, as assistant surgeon, and private J. K. Metzger of the Minneapolis Light infantry as quartermaster. Subse quently Adjutant Sims resigned and W. J. Sonnen wai eleoted. In 1882 the Min neapolis Zouaves finding themselves una ble to keep up with the duties developing upon them, asked to be mastered out of the servise. Their request was gianted by the commander in chief, and another company was organized in Minneapolis to tt>se their place and battalion designa tion, (Company B). At about the same time an independent company in tit. Paul applied for admission to the National Guard and was attached to the First bat talion as Company E. In July. 1882, the battalion went into camp at White Bear lake, and won general praiso ior its con duotand for the progress it made in d*ill and discipline. It having become evid*-ui that an additional field officer was nee d, the commander in chief ordered sn tac tion for a lieutenant colonel to whioh office Major Bend was promoted, and Pri - j vate C. W. Johnson, of Campany ii, was ! eleoted Major. In November, 1882, a company was organized at Fergus Falls by Captain George W. Boyington and waa attached to tho First battalion as Com pany F. In February, 1S83, a company was organized at Red Wing and a company at Litchfield, both of which were assigned to the First as companies A and H, making eight com panies, and raising the battalion to a reg iment. An eleotion of field and staff offi cers was held February 28, 1883, with the following result: Colonel—W. B. Bend. Lieut. Colonel —C. W. Johnson. Major—G. M. Naylor, Adjutant—W.J. Scnen. Surgeon—J"s. Davenport, Jr. Assistant Surgeon—R. J. Fitzgerald. Chaplain—M. N. Gilbert. Quartermaster —J. K. Metzger. Judge Advocate —H. H. Horten, all of whom now hold thier commissions. In Idaroh company I was organized in Minneapolis, and oompany K, in Stillwa ter, making a full regiment of ten compa nies. A band of twenty piecas was also mustered, us the First Regiment band, and in July last,the regiment, to the number of 486 men, pitched tents at White Bear lake. Col. Gaines Lawson, Twenty-fifth Infantry, U. S. A., was detailed by General Terry to take station at the camp, and to report fully on the drill and discipline of the regiment. Colonel Lawson made his report, which was xrabiiehed at the time in the Globe, in which he aocorded high praise to the First regiment for its soldierly qualities, its drill and discipline, and for the marked progress ii made dur ing its week in camp. By a return made to the adjutant gen eral a few day3 ago, tho present strength of the regiment appears as 59', officers and men. Owing to ths regular weekly company drills, and to the officers' schools and the division drill, which are held by the colonel, the regiment is in a Ir'gh state of effioienoy,and should it be called upon lor the suppression of a riot would give a good account of itself. In order that it may respond with the utmost celerity to any requisition of tho oammpuder-in-chief, Colonel Bend reoently issued orders that the members of the several companies shall repair at once to their respective armories whenever the signal fifty-three is sounded on designated steam whistles, thus saving the delay incidental to sending notices to the houses of the members. The non-commissioned staff is compos ed of: Sergeant major, I. S. Robertson; hospital steward, J. N. Dow; quartermas ter sergeant, C. M. Palmer; commissary sergeant, Frank Keogh; and color ser geants, J. E. Austin and W. M. Gregg. One reason for the success of the First regiment is its thorough organization and the e-prit de corps whioh prevails in it. With ten companies engaged in a friendly rivalry, and with a commandant of long experience in the National guard, who de votes a great deal of time and attention to tho regiment, it must necessarily progress rapidly. The splendid appearance which it made in camp was greatly enhanced by all the companies being uniformed alike, and the piebald appearance incidental to varying uniforms was wanting. THE COMPANIES. The following sketches of the different companies will prove interesting: Company A was organized in January, 1880, as the Minneapolis Light infantry, with J. P. R9a, captain; S. A. Sims, first lieutenant; and G. M. N.iylor, seoond lieutenant. Lientenant Naylor subse quently resigned, and .s.-;geant Perry Har rison was elected in his place. On the election as adjutant of Lieutenant Sims, Lieutenant Harrison became first lieuten ant and Sergeant Frank S. Barnard second lieutenant. Captain Rea resigned in May, 1882, and Lieutenant Harrison was elected captain; Second Lieutenant Barnard, first lieutenant; and Sergeant Knowlton, second lieutenant. Subsequently Lieutenant Knowlton resigned, and Sergeant R. W. Hatch was elected in his place. This com pany is one of the best iu the regiment, and is noted for its drill and discipline. company b. Company B. was organized in Minneap olis in May, 1882, with George M. Nay lor, captan; R. D. Brown, first lieutenant, and A. A. Keith, second lieutenant. Lieutecart Keith resigned in February, 1883, and Sergt. G. G. Williams was eleoted in his place. On the promo tion of Captain Naylor to the majority, Sergeant V. J. Welch was eleoted cap tain. The company is making good pro- I gres3 and always make a creditable ap- I pearance. ! COMPANY llC." This company was first organized in , April, 1880, under the name of the "St. I Paul guards," with about seventy-five j • na nes on the muster roll, and the follow- i > ing commissioned officers: Captain C. ci. i Banker, First Lieutenant W. B. Bend, See- I ond Lieutenaut Wm. Ozley. Captain Bunker resigning Lieut. Bend was eleoted captain, he was aftewards elected by the line officers of the First battery 10 the ma jority and upon formation to the colonelcy. The cemmisioned ofrteer3 at present are, Captain F. P. Wright. First Lieutenant F. 0. Sibley, Seoond Lieutenant Wm. Becker. This company have the finest room in the armory building and have had their room fitted np at great expense, by Seymour, Sabin & Co. of Stillwater, it is finished in bard woods, with appropriate earrings and presents an elegant appearanoe. The present membership is fifty, includ ing the commissioned officers. The company is entirely out of debt and is now furnishing to new members their uniform.* at a nominal cost. It is the intention to make the company room a pleasant place for the members to drcj in at other than drill hours, ani to further thiB end, the leading magazines and illustrated papers as well as our home dailies, wili be regularly received during the year. 5951?AB? p. Company D, of St. Paul, was organized as the "Allen Light guard," Feb. 10, :88I, and was mustered into tho state service Aprii 4, '81. when it numbered forty-seven men. The first officers ware 0. A. Bisgler, captain; Charles F. Pusch, first lieutenant, and John B. Jaoobson, seoond lien tenant. Since its organization the company ha-s bad two captains, Biegler having resigned July 12, '81, when he was succeeded by the present captain, Ed S. Bean. Taers has been no ohxuges of first lieutenants, but five second lieutenants, viz: J. P. Jaokson, Ed S. Bean, Fred Hester, Chas. E. Grant and Geo. J. Mitsoh, she latter having now held the office about two years. The oill cera and also its first and seoond sergeants are, eaeh in his grade or rank, the seniors of the regiment. At present there are in the oompany only nine of tho«e whose names are on the muster roll of April 24, '81. The com pany now numbers seventy men, and be gins the year with a drill squad of four teen recruits, to be Increased to about twenty-fiv* during the month. Notwith standing its full ranks the company vigorously enforced its rule of dropping from the roll every unfaithful or inattent ive member. This company participated in the two ;»nnual encampments at White Bear and has engaged in two competitive prize drills.

EMMET LIGHT ASTILLEHY. This St. Paui organization was estab tablished in March, 1882, under Captain C, M. MacO^rthy, to whom the captaincy was offered at the outset and to whose per severing zeal is mainly due the present efficiency of the battery. The first two years of the company's existence were try ing one and it was for some lime a ques tion whether or not it would be accepted by the 3tate as a permanent organization. It was first formed as an infantry com pany, but the number of such companies allowed by law being then filled, it was reorganized as an artillery force, ihongh for gome time without field pieces or any equipments of its branch of the service the company was held together till ai la^-t it is one of the most prosperous of the military organizations of the state. battery is now armed with field piecei. bres and breech-loEding rifios, and ia well supplied with saddles, harnesses, and ev erything requisite to fit it for active sei i T:ee at shortest notice. In September, 1882, ths baUety iu a Iwci^etiiiva driii ai 1 „ililwai±;:4 earned. off the first prize of |500, and was highly complimented by the Un;.ted States army officers who acted as judges on the occasion. During the last sum mer encampment at New Clm the battery attracted a great deal of attention and was reoeived with enthu siasm wherever it appeared. Aii9r the sham battle, '"u which it had a prominent part, it received a high compliment from Governor Hubbard, who declared he had never seen a better drilled battery in or oat of active service, Col. L^waon, of the regalar a^my, who was at the camp as in spector on the part of the national war de partment, in his official report, spoke of the Emmet Light artillery es "a fine body of men, presenting a very eoldierly ap pearance and ably commanded." The roster of the battery now numbers forty-five officers and men, the officers be ing as follows: Captain, C. M. McCarthy; first lieutenant, D.O'Keefe; second lieuten ant, R. J.Markoe;first sergeant, J.H. Shea; quartermaster sergeant, A. D. McLeod; ordnanoe sergeant, William McTeague. The men composing the battery, most of tham Irish by birth or descent, are almost to a man remarkable for their fine physi cal appearance—most of them being of powerful build and capable of great endurance. The organization has no debts and has lately done some good recruiting work. It hsi its room at the armory en Sixth aud Ex change streets. It is in every resptc. de serving of the esteem and encouragement of our citizens. National Guard Association, This body, composed of three delegates from each military company in the stats, will have its fifth annual meeting at Man kato Wednesday of this week Jan. 9. Col.

STILLWATER WLOBULES. A stranger suspected of beirg a crank was ordered to leave the city la.eSelJrday evening. Mr, C. N. Nelson one o* *ho own ers of the planing mill at Lake land, left the building a very few minutes before the fatal explosion which occurrad on Saturday afte "noon. Although the wind was in the eocth yes terday evening, one ootid not complain of the weather being excessively warm, es pecially w'th the mercury at 22 degrees below zero at 7 o'clock in the morning. A. poor woman living near McKusick'8 lake, who supports her family by taking in washing, has had her clothes lines robbed several t'.mts of late i the artic es taken belonging to the woman's patrons, she of course being unable to make good the loss. In fact, this petiy thieving is said to be getting quite fashionable in the vicinity above ur. A man named John Bergland, employed in O'Niel Bros, camp on Kettle river, met with a severe accident on Saturday after noon. The men, it r.ppears were p.boat /»-,;• • - a. I ,~.U. *.*-•-.. aO.

The bursting of the water main o;j Third street was tho cau3fl of considerable incon venience to some of t es on t*?e east side cf tho first indica tion of the accident was found in :.'a coal bin to winch point the water had gradually worked its way from the broken main. Once as opening had been made r,o great longth of time elapsed ":: of ore a great vol i>ae of water poared down Third and Chestnut streets. As usual, difference of opinion prevails as to the cauas of the mis hap. Some persona attribute the bur to the iatenso cold of the past few daye, while others doubt that tho frost has pene trated to a dfrpth of eight feet below the surface of the ground. Men wore Pet at work Saturday evening to repair the dam age. Although t.ieir efforts were throughout the night but little progress was made owing to the th to which the ground is frozen. ROCHESTER.
