Tke Lnnd-Petern Canes—Tke Gale vs
Rowley Salt for Damages—^Court
Takes a Recess.
The last jury case tried was that of
J. W. TAYLOR VS NORTH,
being one of the cases arising out of the
sale of P. M. Lund's stock ot goods to A
Peters in October, 1883. The jury re
turned a verdict in tavor of the plaintiff.
The case of
F. A. GALE VS E. S. ROWLEY
occupied about two days time in its trial.
Messrs. Tripp and Gifford conducted the
case for the plaintiff, and Messrs: Hughes
and Kennedy Bros, for the defense. This
case was brought to recover damages laid
at $15,000 for assault and injuries alleged
to have beeu received by Mr. Gale at the
hands of Mr. Rowley. The prominence
ot both parties and the enormity of the
offense charged had clothed this ease with
an intense interest in this community, and
a crowded court room during the progress
of the trial indicated no abatement. The
jury were charged at noon of Tuesday and
remained out until Friday, when they re
ported that they were unable to agree, and
were discharged. The case was continued.
We consider it highly reprehensible to
comment upon the merits of cases ot this
serious nature publicly while the action
is undetermined, in justice to all parties
concerned, and, further, whay may be the

Considering the decidedly dull winter
that the people of Canton, Lincoln county
and Dakota territory have just safely tided
over, the prospects for a revivification of
building interests are about as promising
as usually marks the introduction of Spring
weather. Although too early in the sea
son to admit of an extended notice singl
ing out details in the building feature,
the reporter has stumbled on to several
very important items that will be given
later on when all arrangements have been
completed. One or two large brick busi
ness blocks are now being talked of, and
plenty of fine residences will doubtless be
erected in the various portions of the city.
But what Canton needs more than the
erection of business buildings is something
to sustain profitably what has been already
mapped out in the improvement line.
We need an extensive pork packing house
and need it badly. We want a tow mill
and an oil mill. We want a paper mill.
In fact there area great many things that
Canton must have before reaching a safe,
self-sustaining condition, and it behooves
the business men to make some stir the
coming spring to secure at least a few of
these features. If the people of this city
feel that the development of the power on
the Sioux is too heavy an undertaking to
attempt this season, let them talk "pork
house." This would be the biggest thing
ever introduced for the benefit of the city
and county, and would accrue in lasting
financial benefit to every business man.

Those who in the exultation of a few
moments respite from winter frigidities
supposed last week that spring was ahead
in the race between snow and rain, were
doomed to deep, dark disappointment.
No sooner bad the temporary thaw ac
crued to itself a semblance of tangibleneds
—as though it had come to stay—than a
radical relapse occurred to the favorable^
symptoms advanced by the meteorological
syt-tem, and cold, bleak winter once more
holds full sway. It is hard to tell at pres
ent whether we are jogging toward spring,
or whether spring is jogging away from us
—but it certainly seems that the latter is
a neck ahead in the race. However this
does not interefere with the general strik
ing success of everything introduced in

is devoted to chronicling the more impor

Progressive euchre has taken a pretty
firm hold of the society circles of our
neighboring towns, but Canton seems to
have escaped from the furore. Progres
sive euchre takes twelve persons. There
are three tables, each supplied with cards
Take the aces, kings and queens from one
ot the packs, and after they h?ve been
shuffled, let each person draw one, the
ones drawing aces going to the ace table,
those drawing kings to the king table, and
those queens to the queen table—the per
sons drawing black cards being partners,
and those red partners. When this has
been done, the playing commences regu
lar euchre is played. No games count
save those at the ace table, and each
player's record at that table is kept by
the scorer. When a game has been fin
ished at the ace table, the parties who
are defeated go to the queen table, and
those who have made the most points at
the king table take places and try to de
feat their victors, while the parties who
have made the most points at the queen
table take the places of the persons who
left the king table tor the ace table. At
the king and queen tables they do not
stop playing because they have finished a
game, but keep right on until the game is
finished at the ace table nor, on the other
hand, if a game has been concluded at the
ace table, and the king and queen tables,
sets have not finished their game, they do
not try to finish it -The ones making the
most points are the victors, whether less
or more than five—the regular number
for a game—has been made. It is usual
to give some present or favor to the per
son winning the most games at the ace
table, and also the ones getting the few

The Clydesdale Horse.
J. W. Taylor of this city having recent
ly received the fine thoroughbred pedigree
Clydesdale stallion, "Donald Dean," a
bay, coming four year-old, weight 1,700
pounds and worth $1,000, it is deemed
appropriate to give a brief history of this
now famous breed ot horses.
We first known of these famous draught horses
waa In the weat of Scotland called Clydesdale, from
the vale where they originally reared. The tradi
tion of that country runs that a Flemlah atalUon,
imported by the Dake of Hamilton two oentoriee
ago, Is their improving foundation. They roamed
on the hiUe that rise gently away from the waters
of the Clyde, tUl a more enlightened day, with the
aid of the printing preea, spread their fame abroad
and created for them an Immense demand. From
Lamplta came Olancer, (338,) the father of the pres
ent race of Clydesdales. Their inherent value Uea
in their reproducing powers. Bred for generatlona
oft-times in and in, they are moat lmpreaalve, and
put upon the common mares of the country the
product ia a splendid farmer's horse. There ia no
doabt but that the Clydesdalea will gradually be
come the work-horses of America, t'armera who
merely scratch the land have no use for them, but
advanoed agriculturista and good husbandmen
know the value of heavy, weU-built horaea, and for
wear and tear the Clyde'a cannot be exoeliod. The
introduction of this horse wiU give lha firmer* of
this section a fine opportunity to improve the blood
of their home kind. The main features of the
Clydesdale ia aize, combined with activity and har
diness. They have intelUgence a_id aagacity, pos
sessing a rarely and widely defined inatinct, com
bining senae, aoun-. ness and strength —the three
attributea necessary to make a horse eucceaaful in
wagon or plough,
Mr. Taylor is certainly entitled to no
httle credit from our farmers for his move
ment inaugurated a year ago to establish
a more thorough introduction of better and
more blooded stock into this region. Being
interested himself in a stock farm north of
town Mr. Taylor realizes the necessity of
a change tor the better in our stock, and
is thus standing the individual expense of
what will ultimately prove a general bene
The "Iron Clad" Strawberry.
This is undoubtedly the strawberry for
the great west and south. It is the
rankest and most vigorous grower we ever
saw, has immense feeding roots, forms
larger stools, and makes more fruit germs
in the fall of any sort in existence. It is
perfectly free from rust or sunburn, never
effected by drouth, (went through the se
vere drouth of 1881 and'1883, without the
slightest injury). It is five days earlier
than Wilson, an immense yielder, in rise
and shape resembles Sharpless, color re
sembles Kentucky, blossoms perfect or
hermaphrodite, has shipped 300 miles
safely to market, and sold higher than
Wilson's. This plant is the acme of per
fection it is entirley distinct from aiy
known strawberry. We have tested it
four years, have out forty acres of all kinds
of staawbeiries, and know whereof we
speak, when we say its equal has never
yet been found, and we are confident it
will revolutionize the business of strawberry
growing. We say this candidly and as
suredly after fifteen years' expierence in
growing strawberries. Every one should
