The marriage of Miss Cora Belle
Fellows and the worthless red, Chaska,
has at last come off. Chaska is an ig
norant Santee Indian, pock-marked
and ugly. If Cora is satisfied, the
world will keep rpiiet—it only encour
ages the heathen Chinee and wild
Australian to emigrate to Dakota for
subjects to marry.
In conformity with the custom of
our people, Louis K. Church, governor
of Dakota, designates Wednesday,
April '25, as Arbor day for that por
tion of Dakota lying south of the 47th
standard parallel of latitude, and Tues
day, May 5, as Arbor day for the por
tion of Dakota lying north of such
parallel.
The Sioux reservation bill is now in
the hands of a conference committee,
appointed by the senate and house,
and it is expected the bill will shortly
become a law.
The democratic county convention
to elect delegates to the Watertown
convention will be held in this city on
the 21st inst.
The strike situation remains un
settled, and a general feeting of un
easiness permeates the business air.
Several thousand switchmen are idle
at Chicago, and over 5,000 men have
been laid off along the lines of the
Milwaukee company. General Man
ager Miller says not one of the strikers
need apply for a job on the Milwau

Judge Palmer says he is not a can
didate for delegate. In a talk with
a Sioux Falls Press reporter lie says:
I have never asked anyone to sup
port me as a candidate for delegate.
Have never stated to anyone that I
should be a candidate. Am not off
the bench yet, and am not in politics.
Hope I shall not get in. Have stated
this to others today and previously.

New Orleans Item: Our people spend
a great deal of money in the east, but
they get no other benefit from the ex

the moment. The east may sell us
goods, but it will never buy here, or im

For trade development we must look

Lennox Independent: CANTON has
a big railroad scheme on hand, by
which it proposes to burst the Dulnth
bubble, leave Sioux Falls a strug
gling suburb and entirely annihilate
Lennox, while Yankton will be left en
tirely, in the cold. By hard work and
putting forth all her resources they
have succeeded in pooling their entire
capital, (two buttons and a shingle
nail.) They propose to tap the Wil
mar and Sioux Falls road at Brandon,
and thus by one bold stroke forever
destroy Sioux Falls' business prospects.
It is not fair that CANTON shoukl act
so mean, (•specially after Sioux Falls
has puckered up her mouth for a full
fledged spring boom or after spending
thousands of dollars in advertising its
advantages and prospects, to en.-.'ty its
palatial business blocks and draw its
inhabitants to CANTON, would never be
forgiven by the Sioux Falls people.
After tapp.ng the road at Brandon,
CANTON will have it come to its very
doors, where tiie road will be broken oil
and run into the ground in order to
make it a permanent terminus. At
CANTON the road must stop in order to
establish a division must have large
car shops, iound 'nouses, etc., and all at
the expense of Sioux Falls. We don't
beiieve that people should act so mean
simply because they have a chance, and
if Sioux Falls gets over the crippling
effect of the cut-off, it will be bound
to pay CANTON in its own coii:. In
the meantime the wideawake rustlers
are transacting their business on a
much larger scale than ever, unaware
of the impending destruction and des
olation that is hanging over them.
They will undoubtedly laugh to scorn
the infantile efforts of CANTON, and
well they may.

There Is some talk of trying to get a
postoflice established at what is known
as Owen's corner. The place is some
five or six miles from Beresford and on
the CANTON route. An office is needed
very much.
In looking over the list of teachers in
attendance at the institute it appears
that many who intend to testch this
summer are noticeable by their absence.
It is to be hoped that Superintendent
Isliam will adhere to what was under
stood to be his plan, of requiring all
teachers to attend the institute or not
try to teach. If a person has not time
to leam his business thoroughly, ex
perience has taught us that time is
never wanting in which to draw pay
for services which are improperly and
imperfectly rendered. Let every friend
of education endorse promptly the ac
tion-of our worthy superintendent.

IN WOOD.
From Itock Valley ltegis!er.
Messrs. Muender, from Grant county,
Wisconsin, who have rented the big
Mulhall farm, northeast of town, ac
companied by their sister, arrived in
Inwood last Friday. New buiidings are
being erect"d on said farm and the
above named gentlemen will occupy
the place at the earliest possible date.
The influx of people seeking homes
in and around Inwood is unprecedent
ed, we think, in the annals of any town
of our size. We are pleased to have
them conic and hope that all may lind
homes to suit them.
A literary society was organized a
short time since, and meets weekly at
the school house.
George ('lose is making arrangements
to occupy his residence. As George
has been paying very close attention to
some fair damsel—to your reporter, and
to most of the Inwoodites unknown—
it is quite reasonable to suppose, it be
ing leap year and George being some
what bashful, that he has been captur
ed and will in the near future put his
head within the matrimonial yoke. If
our surmises are correct we wish him
all the happiness possibly imaginable.
Giflbrd For Congress.
Mitchell Republican: In the current
discussion, this all-important point
should not be lost sight of. If our
present delegate has been of greater.
service to Dakota in his socoud term
than during his first, it is a fair con
clusion that he will be still more valua
ble in his third. The situation should
be viewed clearly and without prejudice
in all its bearings, before a boom is
started for any new man, no matter
what his natural ability or his personal
popularity. There will be work to do
at Washington during the next two
vears more important than any hereto
fore done or begun, and eminent gentle
men who are nursing a prai .eworthty
ambition for political "c1 .stinguish
ment" at the hands of the people may
lind it to their advantage ir the long
run to curb that ambition for a time,
and be content to remain in tiie ranks,
working harmoniously to a common
end.
l/itaiiiiuotiM for His Iti-turn.
Parker New Era: The delegate to
congress question is consuming consid
erable of the thought of territorial poli
ticians even tills early in the season.
The New Era has endeavored to obtain
the sentiment of the republican leaders
of this county on the question, and so
far has found them unanimous for the
return of Judge Gilford. It is urged in
the present delegate's favor that he has
been a reliable, hardworking public ser
vant, and that his experience in con
gressional work and the peculiar condi
tion of Dakota affairs demand no
Change in delegate :|t this time.
A Good SutrjroKllon.
Madison Sentinel: The biennial can
vass for the delegateship has already
begun and the territorial papers are
discussing the merits of probable can
didates. The Mltclieji Republican
makes a good suggestion when it urges
that the people look rather for the man
who can do Dakota the most good at
national capital, than to elevate .aspir
ing politicians to a place of honor sim
ply to satisfy admiring friends, and
since the present representative has
made a good record, his past experience
renders him the best qualified man for
the office—a point worthy of considera
tion.
In I'avor of Wnlerlotvu.
Brookings Sentinel: True CANTON
ADVOCATE favors holding the next
militia encampment at Watertown.
We believe that the proposition will
meet with general approbation among
the boys, especially those of the Second
Regiment. Watertown is possessed of
all the requirements for an encamp
ment, good water, an excellent camp
ground and ease of access.
Dnkotit Slight Do Worse*
Fargo Argus: THE CANTON ADVO
CATE boldly announces Judge Gifford
as a candidate for re-election, in which
it is supported by a number of South
Dakota republican papers—The Huron
Iluronito among the number. Judge
Gilford has had the offlee for two terms
—as long as any delegate ever was able
to hold the territory. The judge has
done well—better than his most san
guine friends anticipated, and if he
should go back for a thiTd term- Dako
ta might do worse.
Suppose.
Carthage News: Suppose the
Harrison
Allen-North-Pacific-one-state
crowd should capture the republican
convention, Gifford he dethroned, and a

THE SPRING DELUGE.
Tiie Missouri River Bottom Flooded
nnd Elk Point Submersed—naiiinjre
to Bridges on tlic Sioux.
The cataclysm of water and floating
ice has somewhat suspended the run
ning of trains to Sioux City. Last
Sunday the gorge in the Missouri river
above Elk Point broke and submerged
the country between that city and .Tef
ferson. About nine miles of the Mil
waukee track is under water, and it is
thought that about six miles of it has
been'washed away. A great many
families in the submerged districts
were forced to leave everything and fly
to higher portions of the country for
safety. No lives are reported lost, but
much stock has perished. At Elk
Point a number of houses are Hooded,
and water is three inches deep on the
floor of the Milwaukee depot. At Jef
ferson the depot is surrounded by water
and the operator goes to his work in a
boat. About three miles above Jack
son, Neb., the water has backed up and
covers fully a thousand acres of land,
frotn which the farmers have been driv
en out. The bridge over the Big Sioux
on the line of the Milwaukee road, four
miles north of Sioux City, still stands,
but one end has moved nearly two feet
and trains cannot cross. The extent
of the damage to the tracks cannot yet
be told, but will be heavy. The Chi
cago, Milwaukee and St. Paul has a
large force of men working to save the
bridge. The breaking of the bridge
severs all connection with the Milwau
kee line. Its freight is distributed by
the Chicago and Northwestern.
Tuesday the ice in the Sioux went
out, and coming in contact with the
railroad bridges between here and
Sioux City weakened them to some ex
tent. The Fairview bridge has moved
about a foot, while the bridge on the
Reloit cut-off, near this city, is not con
sidered safe, consequently the passen
ger train now comes down from Sioux
Falls and returns. It will be several
days before trains will be running reg
larly between Sioux Falls and Sioux

"Lillian, you must lie still ana try to
sleep," said her mother one morning, when
this earl}' bird began to chirp.
'•I'll try," said the child, and so she did,
but it was to no purpose. In five minutes
she was sitting up in bed playing with her
little pink toes. This time her mother, grow
ing impatient, as sleepy people have been
known to do, summarily extinguished her
under the bedclothes, saying, in despair:
"Lillian, I told you to try once more to go to
sleep
"I know it, mamma," said truthful Lillian,
"and I did try, but the wake wiggles ma
so I can't keep still!"—Youth's Companion.

Willie is a little Scotch boy who lives in
Glasgow. He is 5 years old, and has not yet
learned to liko "pease brose," which in his
country is given to children to cool the blood.
"Go on, Willie, you must eat it." said his
papa one day at breakfast.
"But I don't like it, dada," replied the boy.
"That doesn't matter you must eat it. It
will do you good and make you fat like
Daniel, who lived on it when he was a boy."
"Did lie? Was that the man who was in
tho den of lions."'
"Yes, that was the man."
"Well, then," replied the lad, scornfully,
I don't wonder the lions didn't eat him."
The smell of pease brose is not by any
means pleasant.—Harper's Young People

"It is greatly to bo regretted," was re
marked in the hearing of an Illinois farmer,
"that fanners' boys do not stick to the farm.
It seems as if scarcely any of them do."
"Oh, I dunno," said tho farmer. "I've
raised eight boys and they're all farmers
'cept one."
"Is that so? Only oue of them caught by
the glitjgr of the city, eh?"
"Yes, that's all. Poor Bob would go, spit*
of all I could do—run away to the city when'
be was 12, and we ain't never seen him since,'
though it's been over twenty year. But I
dunno but it's all right he hadn't no iikin' for
farm work, nor wouldn't take no Interest in
it. He jes' naturally seemed to hatf' the farm
and didn't know enough about farm work to
drive ducks to water."
•'Yes, I think it was better that he'should
leave the farm, as he evidently had no taste
for it. Is he in the mercantile business?'
"Oh, no, nothing of the kind," replied thft

Best of All
Cough modicines, Ayer's Cherry Pec
toral is in greater demand than ever.
No preparation for Throat and Lung
Troubles Is so prompt iu its effects, so
agreeablo to tho taste, and so widely
known as this. It is tho family medi
cine in thousands of households.
I havo suffered for years from a
bronchial troublo that,, whenever I take
cold or am exposed to inclement weath
er, shows itself by a very annoying
tickling gensation iu the throat and by
dilliculty in breathing. I havo tried a
great many remedies, but none docs so
well as Ayer's Clierry Pcctoral which
always gives prompt relief in returns of
my old complaint.'1 Ernest A. llopler,
Inspector of Public Roads, Parish Ter
re Bonne, La.
"I consider Ayer's Cherry Pectoral a
most important remedy
For Home Use.
I have tested its curative power, in my
family, many times during the past
thirty years, and havo never known it
to fail, it will relieve tho most serious
affections of tho throat and lungs,
whether in children or adults."— Mrs.
K. G, Edgerly, Council Bluffs, Iowa.
"Twenty years ago I was troubled
with a diseaso of tuo lungs. Doctors
afforded mo no relief anu considered
my case hopeless, 1 then began to uso
Aver's Cheny Pectoral, and, hefore. I
had finished one bottle, found relief. 1
continued to take this medicine until a
euro was effected. 1 believe that Ayer's
Cherry Pcctoral saved my life."—
Samuel Griggs, Waukegan, III.
"Six years ago I contracted a severe
cold which settled on my longs and
soon developed all the alarming Symp
toms- of Consumption. I bad a cough,
night sweats, bleeding of the' lungs,
pains in chest and sules, and was so
prostrated as to. bo

A Ureat Compliment.
Frank Hurd, ex-congressman from Ohio,
was in Chicago the other day. You know
he is the silvery tongued orator of that state.
One day while ho was here ho went into a
barber shop on Clark street, and took a seat
for a shave. Having gone through the oper
ation with no word from the barber, Hurd
turned to him and said: "Are yo.i dumb?"
The barber said he was not. Mr. Hurd then
said that he had never before been shaved by
a barber who had been silent. The l.arler
replied "I know you—you are Frank Ilurd.
tfie congressman. I lay down my hand as a
talker to ^ou. Yon can talk longer and bet
ter, when you get startod, than any man I
ever saw in my life. I used to live in Ohio."
Mr. Ilurd shook the man by the hand ar.d
said he regarded what he had said as a great
compliment.—Chicago ilaiL
