Col. Stevens was called to Minneapo

while Col. Lounsberry
makes business trips to Deadwood, St.

has been trying to run the post office

Porty BoshelH to tlie Acre.
Such is the estimate, says the press
of the Black Hills, to the present wheat
crop in that region. We consider this
item of more moment to the future
prosperity of the Hili3 than all the
golden sand« that wili be exported from
that rich mineral centre. We say that
lands which produce 40 bushels of
wheat to the acre, the first crop, on
new land, are more valuabe than the
richest golden mine?, that ever existed.
We believe—we are morally certain"1—
that the golden fields of the Black
Hills are rich in precious metals—pos
sibly more so than California was -in
its palmy days, but what a mint of
money in land that produces an average
crop of forty bushels of wheat to one
hundred and sixty rods of ground.
We think more of the Black Hills
than ever. Tbi* wheat question set
ties the future of that portion of Da
kota. Tf forty bushels is obtained
this year on ground that is only re
cently broke up, what will be the aver
age a year or two hence, when the land
has been properly cultivated
Among the notices omitted in title last
tri-^weekly was mention of the death of
Peter Barnclay, of Redwing, Minn.}
who came to Bismarck as a cutter for
Selleck's Merchant TailoringEstablish
men a few weeks ago. He was ill about
four weeKs beginning with a bad cold
and ending in billious fever and death.
He was at the Capitol Hotel for some
days after constant attention was re
quired when hs was removed to Mr.
Paine's where he died Saturday at 11
p. m. The funeral sermon was preach
ed by Rev. Mr. Sloan, service at Mr.
Paine's. Mr. .Barnclay was born in
Sweeden, was about 35 years old and
unmarried. He was an excellent work*
man and a good citizen. Every atten
tion possible was bestowed him and
though he died without means and
among strangers he wanted for nothing
that could add to his comfort or tend
to prolong life, and all proper respect
was shown his remains.
Fire—'Harrow Escape—A Warning.
Friday night, at 11-30, a kerosine
lamp, in the Chinese Laundry of "Sing
Lee" exploded, scattering fire and oil.
"Menon" and his assistant, "Quonz"
were helpless with fear, until two
yonng men, Messrs. Haskins and Jef
frey, who were fortunately at the time
sitting in front of Cushman & Co.'s
store, hearing the explosion, rushed in
and caused the Orientals^ to realize the
dangerous situation. Without waiting
for a ceremoneous invitation, "Helpee
me puttee outee," they, disregarding
tbe imperious commands of "Qaonz^
"No walkee here!" rigorously plied
hands and feet to the tune of put it out!
while the "heathen Chinee" as they
looked on gave vent to their jargon of
expletives, to their surprise and* feel
ings of indignation, as they saw the
starched and limp garments worn by,
high and low, rich and poor, male and
female sinner and saint, dancing a live
ly jig up and down the middle, right
hand across and left hand back, ending
with all hands around! until the door
was reached, when, without waiting for
time or tune, the garments aforesaid
were unceremoniously pitched into the
street, culminating the dance in dark
ness and smoke. It was a scene for a
painter or a reporter both would have
been highly interested. The lesson of
the hour is now reached. Cause of the
explosion was the negligence of the
Chinamen to fill their lamps daily, full
to ihe top, thereby avoiding the in
evitable danger of tbe highly inflamable
gas forming in the empty space in the
lamp, which becoming heated, explodes
scattering oil and fire. Our citizens
should all personally see to it that their
lamps are kept full or nearly so. To
prevent any difficulty of this kind bet
ter possess themselves of tbe improved
Non Explosive Safety lamps, so many
of which are fortunately in use and
lately introduced here by Mr. Chas. T.
Gayle, who may be found at Seip & Co.'s
store. In a city so exposed to fire no
precaution against afire and its possi
ble suffering and loss should be disre
garded. A word to the wise is sufficient.
An ounce of precaution is worth a pound

For me there exists no Opposition.
Competitors may swarm around me, and offer their
goods a4 cost or less, still I can beat thfim. I can sell for
less than they, and still make a living profit.
My patrons will be convinced of the truth of all I say
when I tell them of the great advantages I possess, chief
of which is the following: My establishment is a branch
of the great and extensive Clothing House of
Hanauer, Lichtenauer & Co.,
of St. Paul, Minn. Every stitch of Clothing I have is
Made by Ourselves. We are manufacturers, and pay no
intermediate profit, consequently my customers obtain
their goods from First Hands. They pay me a small profit
from original cost, and they buy goods from me at Lower
Prices than from any other house west of St. Paul.
I make these offers to obtain the Whole Clothing Trade, to
which I consider myself fairly entitled. By fair and
square dealing, by selling honest goods at Bock Bottom
Prices, I hope to obtain hosts of friends and steady cus
tomers, and prove myself a livingbenefit to the purchas
ing public, who are respectfully invited to call on me
before buying anywhere else.
