L^man^ Iowa, 5: Howard C. Trip,
a po()tifar poet and magazine writer,
was'shot and mortally wounded, by
an unknown person, while standing
on the street on Wednesday evening.
The cause of the shooting was the
publication of a pamphlet called
"Legends of Lemars." Mr. Trip
inserted several poems and sketches
of a personal nature in his book,
greatly to the disgust and chagrin
of enemies. He has been warned
severe! times that he would be killed
IgFhe did not leave the country, but
paid no heed to the threats. He
died Thursday morning. Some ex
citement prevails and his murderer
will probably be lynched if caught.

New York World.
The total value of dutiable mer
chandise imported, into the 'United
States during'the year ending Dec.
31st, 1883, was $481,960,362.
Of this amount the value of what
may be classed as luxuries was as
Books, engravings, etchings, &c
Watches and wutch materials
Embroideries, laces, innerting*
Fancy articles, featUors, perfumery,
Fruits nnd nuts
Precious stones
Musical instruments
Silk dress Roods
Silk wearing apparel laces, ribbons.
Perfumed soap
Tobacco, cigars, etc
This of course includes some arti
cles which can scarcely be called
luxuries, such as cheap clothing,
chewing tobacco, etc. But for the
purpose of general classification
they can neither be called necessi
ties of life nor of the industries of
the country.
This leaves a total value of duti
able merchandise imported into the
United States in 1883 of #362,925,
682, the tax upon which falls upon
the mass of the people, directly or
indirectly, and not upon the wealth
ierclass. The value of sugar and
molasses importel last year 894,
867,664, or over $15,000 more than
the value of art works, embroideries
perfumes, feathers, fancy furs, dia
monds and* other precious stones,
silk dress goods and other articles of
silk.manufacture, put together.
$Tet we are frequently told that
extreme protection taxes the
wealthy classes who consume luxu

Fargo Dept. Globe,: One of the
most hotly contested divorce suits
ever tried in Cincinnati, Ohio, was
that of C. P. and Rosa B. Rapp.
Both wanted a divorce, as she liked
one Boone much the best, but the
court refused, after along struggle,
to grant divorce for lack of sufficient
cause, Mrs. Rapp came to Dakota
the pastrseason, remained the short
time required, by law, and secured
her divorce last November. She
then lawfully took to her heart and
arms her cherished Boone. She is
no doubt happier for tile change,
and probably the two men aftjjt also.
The point of interest is thefaetthat
divorces are easy and quickly 66-.
tained in Dakota. Parties in need of
these little conveniences will find a
short sojourn in this delightful
climate a pleasure and'attraction.
Ladies will have no need to return
to the states to secure a bettor hus
band. If it is generally understood1
tbatldivorces and first-class husbands
are cheaply and easily had in Dako
ta, there ought to be quite a migra
tion here of fair ladies. Unhappily
a large part of th$ d|vorces obtained
'in dakota «ou^s are of temporary
residents who from the states,
and there are attorneys who do a
nice little business in obtaining
them. With Imle publicity an ob
noxious partn^can be shuffled off
and a desirable^ne secured. There
are also instances of parties coming
to Dakota to enjoy the moral and
pbysical invigoration of the rare
climate, who, in the spirit of true
charity do not want the left haud
to know the beneficence of the'
right. An instance is found

war on the dens for gambling and

The American Continent.
Henry Ward Beecher took occas
ion, in his last Thanksgiving Day
Service, to give a brilliant and most
interesting account of his lecture
tour of last summer, which he called
"A Circuit of the Continent."
"Leaving home July 9," he says,
"I followed the sickle. The har
vest of wheat was closed in Ohio
and was beginning in Wisconsin.
Our line of^travel carried us through
the great wheat belt of this country,
and it is one of the marvels of the
world." Then he sets out todescribe
in his own original and striking
manner, his trip through thirty
states and territories, including the
Red River region of Dakota, the
great wheat stated .of the North
west, the cattle r-aiiges and sheep
farms of the plain's^ the vast lumber
country and agricultural valleys of
Washington, Oregon, and California,
Utah and the Mormons, Texas and
the chief dities of Uie South.
