gentlemen: On the evening of Dec.
/j' 1897, my mill, four stories high, and
l^rge flour warehouse was totally de
stroyed by fire. We had just unloaded
a car of soft coal in the basement, un
der the office and my safe fell into the
burning mass and it was three days be
fore we could pull it out to open it.
Upon opening it( to niy surprise) I
found all books and papers in fine condi
tion, and I heartily commend and rec
ommend your safes as being absolutely
fife proof.
crConsidering that the safe fell into the
burning coal' and was in the most in
tense heat of this large building* con
sider it a most severe test.
Yours respectfully,
A Thanksgiving service will be held

Let all the people praise Thee O God
Then shall the earth yield her increase

God for His loving kindness and ten

Deputy Quist also had in charge Jos

who lias been committed to the Devils
Lake jail. There is a question of juris
diction in this case. The attorney for
Kiya claims that the crime was not
committed 011 the reservation, and that it
is an offense which should come under
the state laws. The question was. ar

not handed down a decision.
J. B. Ladeault was ajrested Saturday
last at Rolla by Deputy Stout charged
with smuggling three gallons of whisky
across the Canadian line. J. B. Bercier
was the complaining witness. During
the progress of the hearing yesterday it
was developed that the complaining wit
ness was mixed up in the smuggling and
both Bercier and Ladeauit were bound
over. The two men had a falling out
and Bercier, it is believed, squealed on
his partner for revenge.
Deputy Quist also arrested Joshua
Rerceir and Patrice Laforonaise at
Rolla. They are charged with cutting

They were taken before United States
Commissioner Arthur O. Graham at

Cornhill's Magazine: A very slight
examination of a modern „scythe is
enough to convince one that much his
tory is crystalized in its rare beauty.
The original hand! ft is no longer a han
dle the handles are now two turned
pegs, set in iron ring sAckets, which are
themselves suggestiv of long evolution.
Moreover, the sinuous shaft is not now
what it was fifty years ago—the nearest
pole that the copse cutter could find for
the purpose—a sort of makeshift, in fact:
It is now a shaft rounded and smoothed
in a machine lathe, and bent by steam,
and pressure in a factory to the ideal
curve desired by the mowers of the ages.
Perfect scythe handles might be had now
by the thousand, for the type is found,
and manufacturers could reproduce it
forever but at this stage even the easier
technique tool seems likely to be quite
superseded by machinery. Thus the
scythe is less minister to a modern tech
nique than the embodied evidence of
a technique soon to be forgotten. Be
fore it is too late specimens should be
collected for preservation in museums,
where future generations, technically ed
ucated, might go on bank holidays and
wonder why men ever devised such'awk
ward looking tools.

Deputy Gil Haggart returned from
Jamefstown last night, where he served
a warrant Saturday night on John Stein
becker, postmaster at Denhoff, wlio is
charged with embezzling $1,656 of the
postal receipts at his office. Steinbecker
operates a general store in connection
with the postoffice and he is charged
with using the money belonging to the
postoffice in defraying store bills. He
was bound over to federal grand jury,
which will be convened at Grand Forks.
All of his property has been turned over
to his bondsmen, and they are standing
good for his appearance before the
grand jury.
Deputy Stout came in from Rolla last
night, having in charge William Glen
non, who was indicted the grand jury
in October last for selling liquor without
a 'government license. He ivas arraign
ed before Judge Amidon this morning
and entered a plea of not guilty. He
was bound over to the grand jury in the
sum of $150. Failing to make bond he
was committed to the Grand Forks
