A Knowing and a Faithful Dos.
Several efforts which have proved una
vailing, have been made during the past
six months to secure the entrance of a poor
old German over seventy years of age, and
suffering from dropsy in the legs, into the
city hospital, and but for the true fidelity
and sagacity of a noble black dog, of the
bull-dog species, the old man would have
probably starved to death. The old man
occupies a poverty-stricken room back of
a bolster shop on Fort street, near the
Seven corners, and all through the fall and
winter at meal times,bas placed the handle
of a tin pail in this dog's mouth, and he
has gone straight to the St. Paul house and
other places which the old man frequented
when he could get about, and taken a posi
tion at the door and waited for some
member of the household to take
his receptacle and place food in it
and carefully guarding it returned to his
old master, who probabiy shared the char
ity obtained with his faithful brute com
panion. Several experiments have been
made to see if any other than persons
connected with the households visited
could take the this pail from the dog's
mouth, but all have failed, he only reliev
ing his firm hold of the handle when some
familiar inmate came for it, and none of
them ever could resist his mute and digni
fied appeal.

[Special correspondence of the Globe ]
New Yoke, Jan. 26.—1t is now over a month
since New Yorkers have seen the pavements in
their streets and they are experiencing the de
cidedly novel sensation of actually longing for
the sight. Even filthy streets geem preferable
to this everlastiiig snow blockade from the point
of view at all events, of the harmless citizen who
cannot afford a sleigh and the luxury of a runa
way on the boulevard with its attendant excite
ment and danger. The street cleaning depart
ment which, since its emancipation from police
control, has had smooth sailing, is at last com
forted with the problem of how to dispose of the
snow and icS of a hard winter. The problem is
a rock more dangerous to municipal statesman
ship than the tariff question to presidential
aspira'ion. The apparent policy of the present
administration to wholly ignore it has at least
the merit of being novel. A show is made of
keeping the principal crossings clean, and Broad
way, th 9 rest is left to take caie of itself, which
it does after a fashion by furnishing an exact
counterpart underfoot of the condition of things
overhead with dirt liberally thrown in. Mean
while, cranks of all degrees are besieging the
street cleanirg department with machines of
their invention for duposingof the tnow. One
brought a model of a boiler, yesterday, which
when turned loose on Broadway to tha number
of three, so he said, would clear i. from sonw
after a srorin from the battery to Fourteenth
6trtet, a distance of about three mile?, in a single
mi;ht. On top of the boiler was a hopper to re
ceive the snow wjich -would m?lt and run out in
the form of hot water as fast as the men could
shovel it in. According to his plan six men
should Lo able toehovol all the snow on a three
mile street of Broadway in one night. Four
times six hundred would probably not get
through with it. When told so, the inventor
pocketed his boiler and marched off insulted, bu*.
not at all convinced, to inflict it on other defence
less officials. He is only one of an army whose
headquarters is in New York. It is a mystery
how they all live, unless they fe&d upon one
another.
Since its organization the board of health
keeps a watchful eye on the streets, considering
their cleanliness an important factor in the sani
tary condition of the city. In the rearranging
of the bureaus as "divisions" under the new
military regime of General Shaler, Dr. Cyrus
Edson, a son of Mayer Edson, was made chief
of the bureau of offensive trades.
SUPPEESSIN'G MUSICAL TALENT.
Dr. Edson, who is a very capable young
physician, has had at least one experienca in the
way of suppressing a nuisance of which the
public have not been informed. The Edson
homestead is at Fordham. The early habit of
a crowing rooster in a neighbor's yard disturbed
the then prospective mayor's 6lumberp, while
challenging the admiration of its unsympathetic
owner. In a family couusel it was decided that
the rooster must go; yet that it was ■impolite to
give offense to the neighbor by slaying it, and
dangerous to kidnap it. Tho young doctor, then
bnsy with anatomical 6tadies found tlie way
out. Dscoying the birJ into the Edson yard by
stratagem ho seized it and with his lancet severed
its vocal cords without otherwise injuring it.
Tho result was startling. The neighbor saw
with unbounded amazement his rooster on the
fence at the regular hours; flapping its wings,
craniDg its neck and going through all the mo
tions of a healthy coch-a-doodle-di:o, but with
out making a sound. Behind closed blinds the
Edson. household watched the suspicious sur
prise of the neighbor and his flock of hens with
screams of laughter. Peace was effectually
restored. Whether DivEdson will introduce
officially this method of dealing with a nuisance
that forms one of the commonest causes of com
plaint at the sanitary bureau remains to be seen.
THE OENTENNIAL BALL
of the Astors and the police captains' dinner
that occurred oa one night tfcis week, presented
widely diverging phases of the social life of the
metropolis. The Astors' ball was of course
worthy of "the first family" though not on as
grand a scale as the Vanderbilts' who were in
vited for the first time and attended. The years
have begun to tell on the respectability of Van
derbilt's millions. As long as the old comodore
lived and owned that he had made them, they
were simply vulgar; one generation of "clean
hands" menda matters some. Two or threa of
idleness and incapacity will make the blunt old
ferryman's wealth ultra-fashionable and his
descendants' leaders 'in society. The chief
feature of the Astor ball was that the wine was
really good; generally that served even in the
"first families" at feasts of that kind is execra
bly bad. Ia this point the Astora were not
ahead of the police captains who served their
gueets well at Delmonico's. Some scamp played
h rough joke on Superintendent Walling during
the dinner by sending in a bogus dispatch an
nouncing the breaking out of a riot between
Irish and Italians in Mott street, but the trick
was discovered before tha venerable chief had
time to order out the reserves and break up the
dinner. The joker was discovered in one of the
police inspectors.
THE POLICE CVPTAINS.
The impression conveyed to many by the
frequent onslaughts in the press and in public on
New York roolice captains that they are a very
bad lot is quite incorrect. Socially there are no
joll er fellows, and most of them have consider
able savoir faire and know how to behave them
selves in company. A few have made money
and own "cottages by the sea" but the majority
have little beyond their salaries and a few little
privileges that count for something in the way
of living. F*r personal bravery nearly all have
excellent records. Four earned distinction in
the war and returned one as brigadier general,
one aa lieutenant colonel, one as mtjor and one
as first lieutsnant, having enlisted aa privates.
Nearly all reee from the ranks of the working
classes. A«ong the thirty-six captains on the
force one began as a newsboy, three as sailors,
four as journeymen, jewelers, two aa painters,
two as shipwrights, and others as carpenftrs,
weavers, machinists, hatters, brass finishers,
mill-hands and papßr hangers. One was a
scout in the far west before he became a police
man . In the struggle with the mobs in the July
and draft riots all mtde enviable records
for themselves, some in the ranks, and some as
officers in command.
SPEAKING OF THE POLICE
reminds one of th« apparent opidemic of bold
highway robberies that is at present raging in
New York. Not less than five such assaults
have been, reported since tho last day In the old
year, and only two have been partly avenged by
the arrest of ths supposed robbers. This form
of crime is not indigenous to New York, and is
probably a symptom of the hard times. A very
determined effort is being made by the police to
suppress the thieves and the publication of their
"hauls" in the press at the same tim«. They
stand, in their wrestling match with tha report
er, a fairer chance of getting a '"fall" than in
their struggle with the thieves.
Doings in the Dominion. House.
Ottawa, Ont., Jan. 28—In tha house to
day it was stated that it is not the inten
tion of the government to reduce the rate
of postage from three to two ctnts, and it
is not the intention to mature a sohame
whereby the express business of the coun
try could ba carried *n in conneclioa with
the postoffice butine«s. Negotiations con
tinue with other countries for commercial
treaties, France only axcapted, and th«re
the government failed to make a satis
factory arrangements.

mills and the Nashua cotton mills, all New
England establishment!,in consequence of
the low prices, began to run halt time un
til the market so improves as to justify
them in running full time.
A Reminlsence of the Morey letter.
New- You, Jan. 28.—1n the trial of the
suit of "Josh" Hart, publisher of the
Truth, vs. George Alfred Townsend s New
York correspondent of the Cincinnati
Enquirer, claiming $20,000 damages for
libel, Hart testified that the Truth contin
uedjth6 attack upon Garfield,even after the
general bad denied the authenticity of the
Morey letter, because the Democratic na
tional comrtii'tee continued its assurances
of tbe letter's authenticity.
THE SKATTIB, ■
Oh, what ecstacy in giidin g
O'er tlie water's glassy breast!
Arrov;-like the air dividing,
Almost seeming as if riding
On the fleet wiegs o£ the vvest.
Have I quaffed some magic portioD,
ChangiDg me to demigod ?
Is not this the very motion
With which Hennas trod old ocean,
When with winged sandals shod!
Ha! It is the joyous feeling
Of unfettered bird3l share;
And, likes tiiem. my joy revealing,
Bureto of song 1 would be pealing
Through the wide-resounding air.
Circling, swaying, curving, (skimming,
Like a swallow on the wing;
Now yon margin deftly trimming,
Now the surface roughly limning,
Onward now w£i graceful swing.
Tell not me of Lydian breezes,
That to idle dreams invite;
Rude Boreis better pleases,
Whose carets the waters freezes,
Ana whose-rngjjed kisses bite.

It seems that Mr. Joe Brooks did not go to
London to obtain "The Princess," but to se
cure Mr. Wilson Barrett for a starring tour in
this country. From the manner in which Mr.
Barrett has flooded the neTvspap r offices of
America with notices of himself during the past
year, it would appear as if his chief recommen
dation for stellar distinction lies in the lofty
estimate Mr. Barrett places upon his own abili
ty.
Mr. Maurice Strakosch ha 3 discovered a Vir
ginia woman with a phenomenal voice. Her
name is Mr 3. Kate Bamelsberg. Mr. Strakosch
observes: "I am too old a man to have any axes
to grind, but when I am dead and gone you will
see that this woman will make a strong impres
sion." Mrs. Bamelsberg has gone to Paris to
study. As a preparation for the stage she ran
away from iier husband in Virginia and took her
child with her. So in a spirit of kindness says
Mr. Strakosch.
Dramatic Times: The story that Wilson
Barrett comes to this country for 40 per cent of
the gross receipts and a guarantee that his share
will reach $500 a night, is probably an exagger
ation. When an artist like Salvini can be had
for a third of the gross and bo guarantee, it
seems rather h stretch to pay Wilson Barrett
such terms as those mentioned. Mr. Barrett is
only a fair actor. He is a short man with a
piping void that goes up to a shriek when he
is excited. As a leading man he would be werth
about £75 a week.
A writer in the Dramatic Times says: In
operatic circles Charles Crosby used to be very
well known. He died af aw days ago in a board
ing honse in 18th street. I have aa idea that
want had as much to do with his death a3 any
thing else. He was a cousin of Olara Louise
Kellogg and a faithful worker in hfir behalf,Jhav
ing been her treasurer and companion for years.
This selfish lad» paid no attention to him what
ever in hie latter d«ys, though she lived ronnd
the corner from his house and would hardly
have felt the little it woald have required to give
poor Crosby a few of the last comforts of life.
This Kellogg is a queer womaa.
Nora Perry writes from Boston: The greatest
sensation we have had here is Sembrich. New
York went mad over her, but Boston went mad
der. The prophecy is that she is to be a second
Patti. Nilsßon's closing performance in Faust
was notable in many ways, and the applause
was loud and proloßged; but it was not up to
the last Sembrich night, when the Harvard
students jumped to their feet and waved their
pocket handkerchiefs and criei bravo, and
then 'Vo! Vo! Vo!" as if the first of the syllable
was too much for their feelings to wait for.
Nothing, in fact, lately has been up to the Sem
brich night, and those who were happy eneugh
to have been of that enthusiastic audience are
looking forward to the approach of spring,
whea this charming singer comes back to us for
another triumph.
Nora Perry writes frarn Boston: J should
not neglect to mention the child prodigy, Miss
Cheney, who has been giving such extraordinary
piano forte performances here. In her short
dress, with her long braided hair, she is a pretty
innocent sight—a girl euch as one might meet
any day on the common going to school. But
she begins to play: you shut your eyes for a
moment and listen to the wonderful touch.
You look again. Yes, it is a child who is sitting
there, but it is a child of ganius, such as Lisze
was and Mendelssohn. Study, practice, long
industry may do much, it has done much with
this girl, but without the supreme gift of gftni
us it would rot have produced such results.
What Miss Cheney will achieve as she grows
older it is idle to prophecy, but from this be
ginning there should be a maturity of powers
that would place her among the great geniuses
of the world.

The Ortonville North Star notes as
among the winter methods of making

foxes $7.50; five wolves $30, including
bounty; two badgers, eighty cents; total,
$288.55.
Parties who live in towns and leave
ganaries on their claims containing choice
seed wheat worth $115 a bushel furnish a

E. P. Wells, chairman of the Republican
oommittee for Dakota, is arranging to call
the convention to appoint delegates to
Chicago, at Huron, the last of February.
Some think tha selection of a place is in
the interest of the James River railroad,
in which Wells is largely interested, as Hu
ron is on the James. He objects to allow
ing two conventions, oue for the south and
one for the north, on the alleged ground
that there might be some informality in
th« thing that would oause a contest. That,
however, is evidently but a pretext, and
exceedingly transparent. The aeparate
action of the two sections would look like
a recognition of division and have a bad
effect npon the effort to form one great
state. The rustlers of the north always
have something in view and don't show
their hands prematurely. The remarka-
bly early date at which it is to be called is
believed to be in the interest of Senator
Logan. It ia alleged that hi* strength ia
confined to the west, aud that nearly all
the territories, with lowa, Illinois Michi
gan and two or three other western states,
can be carried for him, and may have an

R. P. Tilden, engineer and enperin
tendent of construction of the Jamestown

tention to push the Devil's lake branch of
the road through to the new town of Min
newaukan, on the lake, early in the
spring, and will probably run trains 10
that place by the 10th of Jnne. This will
make that yonng city the livest point on
the lake this year and give it a fine send
off. It ia very prettily located, and evi
dently a desirable point for investment.
Jamestown is making itself the focus of
much inquiring observation in the states',
and looks for a very remarkable growth
the coming season. Itß new railroad, the
Presbyterian college, the insane asylum,
a fine school house, etc., are among tha
factors in ti.e foreshadowed thrift.
Already there are sporadic arrivals of new

reliable method is a peculiarity duo to tne
din;ate, no doubt.

It is reported that there is at this plaoe
a set of professional gamblers, who are in

no time to take ia the skating rink, etc.,
but drives him home where a well pre

growth.

The Branch line to the Yellowstone National
Park Las its teimiral point here, and all tho im
mense travel for that famous resort is compelled
to stop here from a few hours' time to a number
of daye. The principal shops of the railroad
company between Brainerd and the Pacific Ocean
are now being built here. They will give em
ployment to probably 1000 men. Pine timber ia
plenty in the surrounding country, end various
sawmills in the immediate vicinity of the town
furnish work for hosts of employes. The valleys
of the Yellowstone, Shields and Smith rivers are
vast and very rich in agricultural resources, and
are well settled. Their trade is entirely tributary
to Livingston, while magnificent cattle ranches
abound in every direction; vast mines of true bi
tuminous cool, which can be coked for 1% cents
per ton: also rich iron mines are ■within two to
four miles from town, a d are being worked.
The gold placer mines of Emigrant Gulch, Beat
Crevice, Mill Creek, and Eight-Mile Creek, are
ingston, directly tributary to it. and uro being
actively worked. That wonderfully rich quarts
oountrv, silver and gold, known as the Clark's
Fork District, is south of town, and Livingston
is the headquartera and outfitting point. Im
mense deposits of limestone, sandstone, clay and
fine brick clay, are but two miles distent, and the
manufacture of lime is already an important in
dustry, this being the first point after leaving Due
lath on the east, 1,000 miles, where lime rock is
found. There are some 200 buildings in couro
of construction. The Park Addition on which
the new 817,000 school house is expected to be
built is the most desirable residence property in
town, while the Palace Addition contains the
cheapest business property offered for sale—
tendency of business and business improvements
being largoly in that direction. There are two
banks, the First National and a private bank; two
newspapers, one daily and one weekly A smelt
ing and reduction company is also in process of
formation, to be located here. There are many
chances for business enterprises of various kinds.
Like all new countries, the o- portunit" for
profitable employment are very good and w«rs
men as wall as men of cupitai Trill find ploi.ty i>t
chances in and around the town. Livingston ia
lees than a year old, yet it is probably the second
largest city in Montana: It is not eurpriai/ig
when one considers that agriculture alone has
madß Fargo; the Northern Pacific company** rail
road shops, Brainerd; summer visitors, Saratoga;
lumber, Ean Claire; silver and gold mines, Den
ver; cattle Kansas City; iron and coal, Pittsburg;
that a combination of ail of these factors as M
found here shorJd, within the nest five yoars
make this point a city of at least 50,000 people.
The prediction may seem a wild one, but we huva
yet to see or kaow anyone who, a few years bj;g,
was accused of being wild then in thoir predic
tions, who predicted one-half of what has actual
ly occurred in the Northern Pacific country. Wu
sold lots in Fargo a few years ago for $100 each
that would Bell to-day for $10 000; acres at James
town for $15 per acre (cost 48 cents) that to-day
sell for $1,500, and are built on. We have acres
to-day in Fargo which cost id}{ cents that are
now in town lots selling at the rate of $1,250 per
acre. 80 lota at Livingston which we now offer
at from $25 to $250 will, inside of 8 years, Bell at
from $500 to $10,000 apiece. They have done so
at all good points on the road in the past, and
they will in the particularly at an excep
tionally good point like this. We advance prios
in July.
