JUMPING CLAIMS.
A glance at the notices of contest will
suggest to those who have claims the
importance of making them secure.
There are always persons about who
keep their eyes and ears open, and it
would probably not be unjust to the Na
tional Colony to say that even here
there are men who would take advan
tage of men's necessities or misfortunes
and take their claims from them if pos
sible No doubt there are claims which
it would be a benefit to the community
to have jumped. In cases where the
homesteader is a "on-resident and does
not expect to come, it is only just that
the claims should be jumped, but at
least the cost of entry should be paid to
the person who loses-the claim, and
where there are improvements they
should also be paid for. Where men
are residents of the community, are ex
pending their energies here and aiding
to build up the country, and whose bus-

movement. J. S. Shock was then call
ed out and spok" of the crusade as one
of tho.se gieat movements in the spirit
ual world which must have permanent
results. The saloon-keeper who was
prayed out of his nei'.iiions business
would not ret inn to it. A. I*. Miller
was ut'Xl called out and compared the
grog-shops to so many thousands of
devil-fish reaching tiieir long arms into
the street* and into our homes and drag
ging down our brothers. l'tie demand
for a prayer test was being Answered in
a way that no one expected, and he be
lieved the movement would extend to
Europe. Warren Smith w.is next call

every man who manufactured or sold
intoxicating liquors should be sent to
the penetentiary for life. He was op
posed also to the use of tobacco and
called on his fellow-men to let both
alone and present themselves to theii
wives and sweethearts with clear heads
and clean mouths. Prof. Humlston
was next called out and gave a very in
teresting account of the movement as
he saw it in Cleveland recently. As
shoeing the heroism of women he said
that after one of the bands had 'en at
tacked by a mob on the West Side,
thousands of women offered their ser
vices who before thought they could
never pray in saloons.

Several of our cotemporaries are very
much afraid that we will say something
"overdrawn" about the National Colo
ny. Now, the very nature of the Na
tional Colony is to "draw." It has
"drawn" here what is generally admit

from the surrounding towns those men
who wish to be located at head-quar

THE MILL FIRE.
It seems thatour reporter was in er
ror as to the origin of the late- fire-at
the mill. The following letter from
Mr. Coplin corrects the error:
EDITOK ADVANCE:—In your issue
of March 14th, giving origin of the fire
at the mill, you do me injustice as fore
man of the mill by stating that the fire
was caused by friction of the machine
ry, which was not the case, nor indeed
was it possible, from any machinery in
that part of the building. All the ma
chinery has been carefully oiled every
day and kept in proper running order at
all times.
That the fire was not caused by fric
tion is evident, inasmuch as it origi
nated fully ten feet from any machine
ry, and that at the base of tl cupalo
and from the outside. I now speak of
the fire of Saturday morning. The fire
of Saturday night undoubtedly sprang
from that of the morning previous, al
though we thought it, and by all ap
pearances it was, entirelv extinguish
ed, N COPLIN.
We regret to learn of the death of
the infant son of Capt. Akins, of Elk
township.
ANOTHER APRIL SNOW STORM.
The terrible snow-storm which swept
over Kansas ami Northern Missouri in
the middle of last April will be remem
bered by every newspaper reader. A
large number of persons and many
thousand head of stock perished. An
other April snow-storm visited the
States south of us On the 5th, Sunday
last. Ten inches of snow fell in Chica
go, and afoot as far south as .Vashing
ton. We have not had during the whole
winter and spring a day as uncomfort
able and forbidding as that which kept
Chicago people from church on East
er Sunday.
The more we see of the climate of
Southwestern Minnesota, the more we
are satisfied that, all things considered,
it is unsurpassed. A'e are out
of the reach of the cold, damp
winds of the lake region, south of
the severe winters of the extreme north
ern portion of the country, ami north
of the ague districts of tl.e west. We
are not subject to as severe storms iu
the spring as Kansas and the States
south of us, and our autumns are the
perfection of lovely, Indian Summer
weather, continuing sometimes for two
months with scarcely a cloud by day or
night. The States along the line of the
Union Pacific are evidently subject to
a set of storms which never reach Min
nesota. Those storms which originate
in the Rocky Mountain region crossed
by the Union Pacific, blow over Kan
sas, and portions of Nebraska ami Mis
souri, but tlo not reach us, while the
storms which originate in the North
West and sweep over us, also reach to
Nebraska and Kansas. We have not
had a severe storm in South Western
Minnesota since January 7th, 1S73.
