The Northern Paclflc has long been
noted for the excellence of its passen
ger service. Its through trains are
sources of astonishment and- delight to
the easterner—who expects to flnc
things wild and woolly Jn the west. In
stead of having to ride across the great,
prairies of the northwest on cattle cars
—he Is carried over the country on a
train as palatial ats. ajiy on' which, he*
ever traveled In this or any other coitjji-*
'•jJThe company Is operating—for the
sfcl miles between Fargo and St. Paul—
nwre daily trains—and better trains—
thin any other railway company in the
United States—in proportion to the
dtaisity of "the population six? miles
each side Of the track, along the route.
That is one indication of the Northern
Pacific's efforts to please its patrons.
But they have other plans for the
future that should biar fruit. One of
the proposed new policies is to give
the great commercial cqpters along Its
line from St. Paul to the coast all the
day trains possible. Trains that will
arrive in the forenfton and leave in thi
afternoon and early evening. Trains
that. will enable the people along the
line -to go to big commercial centers-—
do their banking and trading—then re
turn to their homes in the evening.
.One of the notable experiments along
this line have been the train put on
east of Farg6 last "fall to arrive "here
at 10:55 a. m. and rettynj at 8:20 in
the afternoon. This gives the people
from/Staples to Fargo an opportunity
to come to the largest town in this
part of the northwest, do their trading
and get back home without paving
remain away all nights
It is-a. great boon for the retail deal
ers and other forms of bu^jness in
Fargo—but that Is not all. It affords
—through the connections with tile
Winnipeg flyer—an opportunity for
Fargo business men to get letters
mailed here at 3:20, Into Chicago tho
next morning at 11 o'clock—and there
by'gain a day over the old system
through which mail was sent out hefo
at night, reached Chicago the neit
night and was not opened till the sec
ond morning.
It is a great benefit to bankers and
others who carry Chicago exchange, it
to also a boon to the traveling public,
the traveling men and others, and the
Northern Pacific is boosted for Its ef
forts to boost Fargo.
"With the success of this experiment

A Forum subscriber sends a
containing extracts from a letter writ
ten by Col Robert G. IngersolJ on sui
cide. The article lias a touch of timeli
ness in view of the wave of suicide that
has swept over the country during the
recent months.
Ingersoll's great sympathy with hu
man suffering, may have led him tc
take a more charitable view of self
inflicted death than that usually held
by the public—or he may have held the^
more correct view. The popular idea'
that a man I* Insahe whan he takes hjti
own life—is by no means always cofr,
rect„ Many people regard suicide at
the proper method of relieving the
world Of thelf presence—if they are
hopelessly ill—or crippled. Ingersol
says It Is better to be wrapped in the
dreamless sleep "Of death than to live
There is always one weal^ spot, htfw»
ever, in the argument of the suicide.
He cannot say that the individual un
happines of, any human being will be
permanent. There has lived no man,
in all time, who has been sure—beyond
a doubt—that the future held for him
naught but gloom. There lives no
man who Is so much the captain of hi:
soul and the master of his fate—at
William Ernest Henley had It—whe
can,: say—beyond doubt—that he has
reached the entf of a road tbftt .IpadE
away, from happiness.
Etere is the unanswerable ~afgvmen
against suicide. Thousands of men
and women who have been possessed
of the impulse of self-destruction—an
impulse that came in hours of pain and
discouragement—are living wltnessei
to'the fact that what seemed the be
ginning of night—was only the dark
hour that precedes the dawn. If mer
were indeed free agents—if they were
•in the smallest degree masters of th
farthei' future—they might be applaud
ed for-their.courage when they walk ui
to the door of death. But since eacl
hottt* hangs Upon contingency—sjnee
,the .future may hold either roses oi
rue, with no man knowing the theory,
of the suicide falls to be conclusive.
JPhe following is a part of the Inger
so^l letter:
•. 'i
1 do not know whether self-kll)ing is
on the increase or not If it is,, there
must be, on the average, more trouble
more sorrow, more failure, and, conse
quently, more people are driven-to-de
spair. In civilized life there is a great
struggle, great competition, and many
fall. To fail in a great city is like be
ing Wrecked at sea. In the country a
man has friends he can get a little
credit, a little help, but in the city it is
different. The.man is lost in the multi
tude. Iji the roar of the streets, his cry
is not heard. Death becomes his only
friend. Death promises release »fr6m
want,'from hutiger and pain, and so
the poor wretch lays down his burden,
dashes! it from his shoulders and falls
Certainly the, man who kills himself
is not a physic-al coward. He may lack
nlOral courage, but not physical. It
may be said that some men flght duels
because they are afraid to decline.
They are between two fires, the ohance
of death and the certainty of dishonor,
and they take the chance of death. So
the Christian martyrs were, according
to their beliefs, between two flres—the
flames of the fagot that coufa burn but
for a few moments, -and the fires of
God, that were eternal. And they chose
the flames of the fagot.
To be hopelessly imprisoned—to the
dishonored and despised—to those who
have failed, who have no future, no
hope-^-tb the abandoned, the broken
hearted, to those who are only rem
nants and fragments of men and wom
en—how conssolhig, how enchanting is
the thoyght of death!
And even to the most- fortunate,
death at last is a welcome deliverer.
Death is as natural and as merciful
as life. When We have journeyed long
—when we are weary—when we wish
for the twilight, for the dusk, for the
cool kisses of the night—when th^
senses are dull—when the pulse is faint
and low—when the mists gather on the
mirror of memory—when the past Is al
most forgotten, the present hardly per
ceived—when the future has but empty
hands—death is as welcome as a strain
of music.
After ail, death is not so terriSle a
joyless life. Next to eternal happiness
Is to sleep In the soft clasp of the cool
earth, disturbed by no dream, by no
thought, by no pain, by no fear, .uncon
scious to all' and forever.

t&ad, S. D., Dec. 12.—The men who
"discovered" the famous Homestake
gold mine at this place, like the men
who were In-the- "Churg? of the Four
Hundred." are becoming legion.
The latest claimant of the honor of
having been the original discoverer of
the Homestake mine is T. T. Corn
farth, a former Black Hlller, who now
is one of the ^principal owners of the
Nevada Belle-Helen Mines Co., of
Belle-Helen, Nev.. He alleges that he
placed his stakes on a group of twen
ty-two claims now included In the
Homestake property, In the spring of
1878. Men yet residing in Lead who
are familiar with every detail of the
history of the Homestake mine say
the story told by Mr. Cornforth is a
romantic one, but that the sad feature
about it is that It is without any
Second-hand goods V ought and aoM.

Ministers' children have a hajql time
getting acquainted as they are looked
on with suspicion by the town kids,
and it is really necessary t6r tho son
of a preacher to have a few bad habits
to receive any recognition whatever.
After the school teacher had got my
name and age recorded and had
pumped out the fact that my father
preached tor a living, I generally drew
a front seat and some warmed over
advice, which seemed unnecessary to
a backward child like myself, who had
not done anything—-yet.
