Augustus Aspinwall, Esq., was at the twin cities Saturday and Sunday last. Rev. and Mrs. Morrow were bless ed with a son last week. Unable to learn date. The dance at Seely's opera houBe last evening was a very successful and happy event. The dance at Turner ball, Monday evening, was largely attended and therefore a big success. The post office makes a very pret ty appearance since newly painted. Sleeper was the artist. Judge McConnell says he will give Richland county a term of court, beginning November 19tli, next. Major Fowler has removed, to gether with his family, to Fari bault, Minnesota, and the parents of L. A. Kinney will remove into his house. Mr. and Mrs. Fitzimmons have gone to house keeping in the resi dence property recently vacated by W. H. Beacham, Miss Delia Beach am expecting to depart for home in a few days. Mrs. R. J. Cogshel and little daughter are here from River Fall, Wisconsin, visiting former's sister, Mrs. Cltas. Dameral. And by the way, the little daughter is one of the most, pretty brunetts we have seen for along time. Undertaker Rice has erected a very pretty glass show room in a window of his elegant and exten sive store where may be seen dis played the finest sort of funeral goods. Mr. Bice's establishment is a credit to the city. Julius Peterson will take charge of the livery stable now managed by Mr. Drake, the first of next month. Julius is a good man in the business and has some fine horses. Mr. Drake, however, has done well by the public in this re spect. Mr. E. E. Hazen of Fargo has been in the city this week,' and it is possible that he will succeed Messrs White & Kellogg in the loaning business after January first, that being the time these gentlemen ex pect to have their matters all set tled up, and ready to pull out. Mr White expects to go to Minneapolis, we believe, and Mr. Kellogg was not fully decid3d upon his course. The county republican committee has its call for a convention in THE TIMES to-day, set for the 9th of Oc tober, with the idea of putting in a straight ticket, and we understand that it is the hope of the republicans that the democrats may also put up a straight ticket—and thus learn the true strength of the parties. But from what we' can learn a goodly proportion of the democrats prefer not to do this, but to nominate peoples ticket, this time. George Johnson has returned from the country for a day or two where he is at work on a residence for Daniel and James Devit, 32x48, 18 foot posts and hip roof, finely finished up outside including a very pretty porch, making really, one of the finest farm residences in the county. Mr. Johnson has also this summer put up a double resi dence for Fred Stewart, main part 24x32 with ell 16x24, 16 foot posts. And James Carter and Robert Nor ton are, together with their families, domiciled on the farm and will work the same for Fred in the future, having rented it for five years. 'It is about time that the congrega tional clergymen begin to arrive for the conference. We believe that the present meeting is to be very largely attended, there being a goodly sprinkling of eminent men in attendance, and that the bus iness to be transacted will be cor respondingly important to the church, and that the session and ad dresses will be exceeding interest ing to the public—all having a cordial invitation to attend. And in the light of these facts, Wahpe ton opens her hospitable doors to the clergy and bids them a royal welcome. With the hope that their vis^t may be all that is anticipated by them, and that the theolgical legislature in the new church be equally so in profit. p' im**m*fwpm, mMi&-fy*k>.Jbfi8»rinr ^ArfjiVaWs? ..* will sk*m The rain to-day is a good thing for plowing. The ground has been very dry. The boys are doing a good deal of shooting at a lake near Milnor, these days. The letters of both President Cleveland and Candidate Harrison will be found on the inside of to day's paper. Fred Beck and wife returned from their visit to the twin cities Sunday morning, after having en joyed themselves very much. Wheat is to-day quoted at 85c at Wahpeton. The buyers have, how ever, been paying a little above the market price the past day or two. Mrs. Dr. Swaine, Miss Flora Austin and Miss Alice Hawkes ex pect to visit the territorial fair at Grand Forks, Saturday of this week. Prof. Crocker has been ill since opening school this term, and being confined to his room this week, the high school, of course, takes a va cation. D. Johnson, the painter, has done very handsome work in painting, papering and graining the Congre gational church. This church is now just as pretty as a bird's eye pretty enough for anything. At the U. S. term of court at Fargo on Wednesday, Judge Mc Connel presiding, Mr. J. B. Doig, was, after public examination, ad mitted to the bar, and granted au thority to practice before the courts of the territory of Dakota. Dr. Spafford of the territorial board of health in the city Tuesday was introduced about the same by Dr. Swaine, and the two officials departed the' next morning for Grand Forks where a meeting of the board is being held. Let the ladies and gentlemen vote for Cleveland and reform, at See'.y's opera house to-morrow evening. Edwin Barbour, the showman, pro poses to let Dakota vote on the presidential question—so far as he can. So let the administration be sustained to-morrow evening, sure. Through the enterprise of ex mail agent Crofts, Wahpeton is fa vored with a system of weather sig nals, from Washington, D. C„ placed on a staff over the post-office. The white flag means clear weather, but when it appears with the black tri angular flag above it, indicates warmer and clear weather, and when the black flag appears below it indicates colder and clear weather the blue flag means rain or snow white flag with black square in the center means a cold wave. Mr. Matson and wife of St. Croix county, Wisconsin, an uncle and aunt of Mrs. F. L. Dwyer, are out here visiting with Mr. Dwyer's family, near Hankinson. Only a few days since Dr. Yanatta, out here visiting Mr. Dwyer was intro duced about the city. The doctor was quite an elderly gentleman and it was with his son whom Judge Lauder of this city read law in Wisconssn. While in the city this time Mr. Dwyer received a telegram from home, spying his little daugh ter, a year and a half old being ill, had suddenly grown worse, and he hurried away home. It is hoped the little girl will soon recover her good health. We hear a great deal said of the proposition that wheat inust ad vance in price. In another place in to-day's paper we quote a summary of the situation from the Sioux Falls Argus-Leader, domesttic and foreign. It is true that two years ago men predicted that wheat would advance, which was not realized and although men of good judgment think that wheat will be worth $1.00 in 30days at Wahpeton, we rather think the time is placed too near. The same man, however, says that he is offered $1.00 for his grain in April, and he predicts that good seed wheat will be worth $1.50 next spring, he being now offered $1.20 for fife for seed. Be these things as they may, every man must be governed by his circum stances. If he has debts pressing him and money hard to get and he can get a good price for his grain, the chances are he had better sell within 30days, for by that time the gran will have attained its highest price for a few moments to come, and by which time tiie price may be squeezed down, or lowered into scaring farmers to deliver to the elevators. a®? vsn w&rv?>«. Wahpeton, Richland Co., Dakota, Thursday, September 20,1888. A LEGAL DOCUMENT. The opera house management beg to announce the engagement of Mr. Edwin Barbour, who has been the leading man of the People's Theatre at St. Paul, and is now starting in one of the most laughable comedies ever written, entitled, "A Legal Document."

A Cure for Diarrhoea.—Mr. J. A. Burnison, of Colburg, Montgomery county, Iowa, has found out how lie can cure any case of diarrhoe. Two of his children had diarrhoe for about six weeks, he tried four dif ferent kinds of patent medicines without benefit, but he finally got hold of a bottle of Chamberlin's colic, cholera and diarrhoea remedy, which he says completely cured them, and is confident it will cure when the plainly printed directions are followed.
