Now, therefore, to the end that the guilty par ties may be brought to justice, I, Geo. H. Hand, Secretary and Acting Goveniorfof the Territory of Dakota, by virtue of the authority in me vest ed by the laws of said Territory, do liereby offer a reward of One Hundred and Fifty Dollars for the arrest and conviction of the person or per sons who committed said murder. In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and affixed the sreat seal of the Territory of Dakota, at Yankton, this 11th day of July, A. D. 1878. [SEAL.] GEO. H. HAND, Secretary and Actiug Governor. NOTICE. The Yankton County Republican Committee arc requested to meet at the Press and Dakotai nn office next Saturday, July 20th, at two o'clock p.m. F. J. DEWITT, Chairman. LOCAL LACONICS. Highest mercury to-day 94 above zero. The plasterers arc at work on Poore'snew house. New potatoes of monster size arc plenty in town at reasonable prices. A rumor prevails that additional troops hare been ordered to Spotted Tail. "Theatres and Circuses" is the theme of Haskell's lecture at the Methodist church to-night. Do not forget the lecture on the "Stage" and "Circus" to-night by Bro. Ilaekell, at the Methodist church. Go early to the Methodist church to-night if you want a good seat to hear Haskell's thrilling lecture on a showman life. Brother Haskell gave an excellent dis course at the Methodist church last night and took up a collection of seventy cents. The present warm weather is rapidly ri pening the wheat, and the wheat harvest is now generally commenced in this portion of the terriJory, Bids for the transportation of Spotted Tail's people and baggage to the new agency were opened by Major Pollock yesterday, but the result is not yet known. The city council met at four o'clock this afternoon, the main object of the meeting being to act upon the report of City Engi neer Palmer in regard to the city grade. Mrs. J. A. Potter president of the wo .man's temperance alliance, desires us to an nounce that the alliance prayer meeting will be held at the Congregational church to morrow afternoon at three o'clock. The indications of the weather for the uppar Mississippi and lower Missouri val leys are, warmer, clear or partly cloudy weather, variable winds, mostly from south east and nearly stationary pressure. The second edition of Cox's building was being hauled up Third street to day to its new location on Broadway. Another email addition remains to be moved before the ground is clear for the commencement of work on the new block. A telegram from Bismarck says that last Friday a party of Standing Rock Indians caught the Indian agent, Major Hughes, dragged him down to the Missouri and tried to drown him. The commanding officer, Gen. Carlin rescued him. Ban Rice's circus will probably arrive in Yankton this evening. The concern is traveling overland with wagons, and is meeting with difficulties on account of the heat and bad roads, but is making strenuous efforts to meet all its engagements. Capt. Dougherty says that every man on tue Jim river is a horse thief. Dougherty has said a great many other things which are about as true as that assertion. Yet, in the estimation of the commissioner, he is incapable of making a false statement. Frank Hefner commenced cutting wheat this morning on his farm one mile east of town. The yield and quality is good. Frank says he found two or three nests in his wheat, which he thinks were not made by 'hoppers. They have the appearance of having been made about the 4th of July. An exchange says that a good preventive of sunstroke is to carry a light cambric handkerchief, not wetted, but loosely placed in the hat, which is said to be better than a wet sponge. The sponge, instead of doing good, is injurious, as its effects, if not fre quently replenished with cold water, are like that of a hot, steaming poultice. The commissioner of Indian affairs re marked while here that there was no evi dence against Maj. Gregory, agent at Brule, but that he hoped to yet implicate that gen tleman. "Hoped" is a good word and one that gives a slight indication of the motive which actuates the Indian department in its pursuit of fraud along the Missouri river. Maj. Pollock's clerk at Spotted Tail agency has resigned owing to a difference between himself and the agent upon the subject of matrimony and the evils which an event of that nature aTe liable to develop in persons of bibulous temperament. Charles A. Works will go np to the agency and do office work for the major for a few days. The correspondent of the Chicago Tri bune make* out Dr. Liyingiton to be Rothschild. According to the statements of that gentleman the doctor isjpossessed of immense landed estates^ is the proprietor of three profitable Nevada silver mines, is financially interested in every business en terprise in Yankton, and has loose change lying around all over the country. What a good thing it is to be rich this hot weather. & «. or v'»,VfiKV. s» One of the specifications against Dr. Liv ingston In the Chicago Tribune charges, auil one which is dwelt on as a big thing in the way of fraud, is that he paid $02 per ton for Blossburg coal. This was many years ago, but the books, bills and receipts in pos session of Bramble & Miner, of whom the coal was purchased, enables us to trace this item back and show that it was a legitimate transaction. The coal cost in Chicago $22 per ton transportation from Chicago to Crow Creek by rail and wagons, $35 per ton total $57 per ton. This is what the coal cost Bramble & Miner laid down at Crow Creek, leaving them a profit of five dollars per ton, not a very heavy margin for freighting through two hundred miles of wild Indian country.

The Liver is the imperial .organ ot the whole human system, as it controls the life, health and happiness of man. When it is disturbed iu its proper action, all kinds of ailments are the natural re sult. The digestion of food, the move ments of the heart and blood, the action of the brain and nervous system, arc all immediately connected with the working of the Liver. It has been successfully proved that Green's August Flower is unequalled in curing all persons afflcled with Dyspepsia or Liver Complaint, and all the numerous symptoms that result from an unhealthly condition of the Liv er and Stomach.

An Experienced Experimenter In the Vnl ley of tlie Jim Gives Reasons Why His Region Is the Best. FORKSTBURO, BAMBLN Co., D. T. Editors Press and Dakotaian: I notice in tbe Press of July 4ih, a long arttclc set ting forth the advantages of the Jim river as an agricultural and stock raising region and as I am particularly interested in the latter will deal with that subject only to satisfy the Inquiry so often made, why this up river country is so much better adapted to stock raising than the lower portions, and will give some of the reasons. In tbe first place stock has an almost un bounded range, and this will remain so for many years to come on account of there be ing large tracts of land not strictly adapted to agricultural purposes which produces an abundance of the best of feed. In the variety and quality of the grasses nature has perfected her work in a way that the ingen uity of man, with all this knowledge and skill combined, would be at a loss to know how to better. It is adapted to the wants of the Btock. I am not much of a botanist and will not attempt to name the differ ent varieties of grass but will say that thev are from the earliest to the latest kinds known which gives the stock a change of pasture from early spring till late in the fall. Meadow land in abundance can be found on almost any ranch that might be selected which will turn off from two to four tons per acre of a rich nutritions growth and the different varieties will give the stock grower at least three montas in which to secure his hay. Wintering on hay alone was an expsri ment with me at first, and as I have tried it two winters with the best of success and brought my stock out in the spring not only in good order, but fat, I can safely say that plenty of bay with a good shelter and proper care is all that is needed to guaran tee success. Why they winter so well is because the winters are dry. Every exper ienced stock raiser has learned that steady cold and dry winters are preferable to open or changeable ones. I am not able to say at present whether or not the winters are as cold here as at Yankton, but am inclined to believe to the contrary. They are certainly not quite so changeable. With the opening of spring there is a perceptible difference. When we have a gentle rain here we often hear of a snow storm reported helow and sometimes a blizzard. We have good graz ing nearly a month earlier than in the lati tude of Yankton. I have had some experience in stock rais ing in other countries and have visited some that were considered among the best, but of all that I have seen give me this, where a good fat beef can be selected from tbe herd at any month in the year. I am not inclined to make comparisons showing tbe advantages we possess over our neigh bors engaged in the same business. If I should I fear it would not be long till we might be crowded, but as it is there is room for a few more and we will he pleased to locate them on good bottom claims out of sight from the smoke from their neighbors' chimneys, if they desire It.

Provision Mailo by Gov, Howard Tor their Present timl i'liiure t'nrn. Gov. Howard reports as the result of his trip to Nebraska in the interest of the in sane of Dakota that he has made arrange ments for tljo accommodation of all new casos, until the 1st of Feliruary, at Lincoln, Nebraska, lie has also prevailed upon the managers of the St. Peters asylum to care for those now in that iu&titutlou uutil the saiue date. At Lincoln the governor found the asylum nearly full and Its officers de clined to receive any of Dakota'* unfortu nates unless the territory would pay the cost of completing some unfinished rooms in a hair basement of the asylum building. This the governor agreed to do at his personal espouse aud an arrangement on that basis was agreed upon. It Is impossible to se cure accommodations in any of the state asylums after the first of February and Gov. Howard Is about to begin making provision for the care of Dakota's insane within the territory. Tlie two largo, uuused immigra tion buildings in lower Yankton 9re to be moved to the school section, just north of town, and there combined into one build ing and fitted up in comfortable shape for the use of this class of patients. The pro posed site of the asylum is an excellent one and the plan the cheapest and most feasible thai has been suggested. That these peo ple must be cared for no buuiau.person will deny and while there is no provision made for the erection of buildings for their occu pancy within the tcrritoiy, the governor will be fully sustained by public seLtiment and his efforts seconded by the next legisla ture. The territory is now paying for the care of twenty-three insane people, thirteen of whom are from tlie Black Ililla, and it is reasonable to suppose that by the 1st of February the aggregate number will be not less than thirty. The location at Lincoln is easily readied from the Hills, ami from all of southern Daki tj, and it is probably the best place, ail things considered, that could have been chosen. But as the facilities of the institution are insufficient for the ac commodation of patients from Dakota aftei Febiuary next, the governor's plan is tl:e next best that could have been reached. IIV (TMvEics.il. ACroitn. AYER'S CATHARTICPILLS are the best of all purgatives for family use. They are the product ot long, laborious, and suc cessful chemical investigation, and their extensive use, by Physicians in their prac tice, and by all civilized nations, proves them the best and most effectual purgative Pill that medical science can devise. Bein» purely vegetable no harm can arise from their use. In intrinsic value and curative powers no other Pills can be compared with them and every person, knowing their virtues, will employ them, when needed. They keep the system in perfect order, and maintain in healthy action the whole machinery of life. Mild, searching and effectual, they are specially adapted to the needs.of the digestive ap paratus, derangements of which they prevent and cure, if timely taken. They are the best and safest physic to employ for children and weakened constitutions, where a mild, but effectual, cathartic is required.

TUB CRUST OF I'AItTAH Speedily leaves the surface of teeth upon which the cleansing and preservative in fluence of SOZODONT is daily exerted. No form of decay can infest a set of "ivories" upon which it is used. It has, moreover, a most refreshing effect upon tbe mouth, in which it leaves a very agreeable taste, besides rendering the breath fragrant. If the mouth be rinsed with it after smoking, tbe taste of the tobacco is entirely dissipated. As an auxiliary to personal comolincss it can not too highly be extolled. So'.d by druggists.

Harris returned laslcvuuing from a trip to Like Ktimpaskii and tlio region along tho line of the Winona and St Peters railroad. Me informs us that the rapidity of the settlement of tlio country along tho Sioux and for miles westward is unprecedented in tho hist ry of the territory. Since Febru ary last not less than one thousand people have settled in the neighborhood of Kam peska, in Codington county, and durtnp the same period some live hundred have lo cated in the unorganized country of Ham liu. Iu the vicinity of Kmipcska between 9,000 ami 10,000 acres ot prairie has been broken tins summer, and in Hamlin coun ty Judge Spaulding, late of Wisconsin, has eighteen breaking tcamsat work, and about 10,000 acres ot' prairie sod have been turned over. The rush of immigration continues un checked, and the indications are that before winter commences the entire country be tween tbe Rig Sioux and Dakota rivers will be settled, and at least half a dozen new coutities oiganized. People east have found tliut the best land in the Uuited States open to settlement under the pre emptiou laws is in Dakota, andthey are rushing in avail themsolvcs of tho opportunity to sccure rich, productive laud in a healthy climate, contiguous to good markets, aud acccssible by easy and quick lines of transportation. A large number of settlers are locating iu the Dakota river valley, in a noithwesterly direction from Kampcska, with the expec tation that tlie railroad from Kampcska will be extended in that direction to form a con nection with the Northern Pacific road. Tlie settlements iu this direction arc being made in Thompson, Mills and Beadle coun ties, and it will probably not be long until these counties will be calling for an organ ization.
