Chicago, July 10. Wheat: Hot and
dry weather in Canada and unfavor
able Russian conditions result in Liv
erpool cables coming to higher.
Weather northwest partly cloudy
while southwest is clear and warm
and favorable ofr the movement. Sales
made on rallies from these prices
should return profits.
Corn: Cables come higher due to
unfavorable American weather ad
vances. Weather here continues dry
and hot with no relief in sight. We
look for higher prices on September
and December corn.
Oats: This market to a certain ex
tent will follow corn. We look for
Jkifiher prices on September oats.

Inasmuch as Fargo is the second
largest distributor of farm machinery
in the world it seems entirely fitting
that a part of the state fair be given
over to the exhibit of agricultural ma
chinery. Not only will there be many
exhibits in machinery hall, but several
of the larger companies will have spec
ial displays.
Perhaps to the outsider there is a
sameness about machinery exhibits
that is uninteresting, but to the user
rf machinery the improved tool or a
new method of handling a marvelous
pit-ce of machinery is intensely inter
esting. At the state fair this year, the
exhibitors will have their displays so
arranged that they will be Interesting
to everyone.
As far as possible all of the machin
ery will be moving and practical dem
onstrations will be given as to the me
thod of operation. Dealers will make
every effort to greet old customers and
provide rest rooms for them.

"No Smoking."
When railways were a novelty the
companies vigorously enforced theiii
anti-smoking laws. The Great West-)
ern company once caught a tartar,
says London Tit-Bits. The station
master at Dldcot r^noved a passengeil
from an "up" express train and handed
him over to the police on a charge 0$
smoking to the annoyance of a fellow-*
traveler. Next day the prisoner wa
brought before the magistrate, an
when asked what he had to say In an*
swer to the charge he replied:
"Gentlemen, the offense took place)
in the County of Wilts, whereas I amj
now charged in Berkshire. I am a so-f
licitor I was specially engaged in
case which I shall now miss, and
stall sue the company for detaining
me. I respectfully hold that you in,
this county have no jurisdiction oveii
what occurred in another county."
He was released, and he did sue thej
company and got £80 damages.
The first smoking-carriage was ln^
troduced on the Eastern Counties rail
way in September, 1846.

The case of Emit T. Thysell, admin
istrator, vs. Henry T. McDonald, et al.
of Hawley was called for trial before
Judge Roeser in the district court this
morning with George W. Hammett of
Hawley as counsel for the plaintiff and
Mr. Dosland for the defendant.
The plaintiff brings action to cancel
a certain warranty deed which was a
transfer of a piece of land delivered by
Henry McDonald to his son, H. T. Mc
Donald and over which a dispute arose
among certain heirs.
In court yesterday on motion of the
county attorney the indictment against
O. E. Linderson, one of the criminal
potato cases was ordered nolle prosed.
Mr. Dosland said that a close examina
tion of the evidence against Linderson
it is found that there is nothing to
connect him with the alleged fraudu
lent potato transactions. While his sig
nature appeared on a number of these
transactions it is asserted that his rub
ber stamp signature had been used af
ter his departure from Barnesville and
that he himself was in no way involved
in the deals. J. M. Witherow was coun
sel for defendant.
It was also announced that the crim
inal case against J. W. Bernhardy of
Barnesville has been continued over
the term. The testimony in this case
and that of the Carey case is practical
ly the same and as an appeal has been
taken it was thought best to await the
decision of the higher court, and all or
(ho civil suits in connection with the
Barnesville potato association troubles
will be taken up at the fall term by
which time certain proceedings in
bankruptcy will have been decided and
upon those proceedings the merits of
the different actions pending rests to a
very material extent.
A caller at the office of President
Welter of the Minnesota Red River

during that time there were one or two

In company with Mr. Welter Profes

Undertakers Beck & Morrow received
a communication from the German con
sul at Chicago and an undertaker
there, today, advising that the body
of Byers be interred here as there was
no means available for extraordinary
expenses, the bereaved wife being
practically unprovided for. It is un

Conqueror Would Have Resisted to,
the Last, But His Generals De
sorted Him—insisted on For
mer Leader's Abdication.
A hundred yeans ago one of tht
events of all history occurred. It was
the abdication of Napoleon as Em
peror of France and the signing away
of the rights of his family to the
throne of that fair land. The Bourbon
family was to be returned to power,
the Allies having entered Paris.
Napoleon, beset on every hand on
the downward slide from the crest of
power, had returned to Fontainebleau
at the beginning of April, too late, al
though he would not recognize defeat.
He was still bent on doing something.
On the night of April 2, Caulaincourt
returned from Paris with the news
that the senate had deposed the for
mer master. His reception of the newB
was dramatic.
The following day was a busy one.
His officers were called.

allows the troops to wear the white
cockade. I will attack Paris. I count
on you. Am I right?"
The appeal to their attachment was
great. The resourceful conqueror stood
before them.
"Vive l'Empereur! To Paris!" waa
the shout of assent that 'thundered
gratefully in his ears. i
"Tell your soldiers," he said briefi
The generals, however, stood aloof.
Ney was their leader. To them the
situation was not one that could be
cured by the imagination alone. Real
power was needed. He, Lefebvre and
Moncey entered Napoleon's study wlth^
out awaiting his will.
"Sire," said Ney, "it is time to end
this. Your situation is desperate. You
must make up your mind and abdicate
for the King of Rome."
Napoleon began to discuss the sitnaj
tlon. 1
"It is impossible!" Ney exclaimed,
breaking in impatiently. "The army
will not follow you. You have lost its
"The army has still obedience
enough to punish your rebellion," rei
sponddd Napoleon, still the master as
their eyes met. Ney quailed before
that glance.
Breakfast was served late the foli
lowing day, the hour being 11 o'clock.
The Emperor came to the meal with
a number of his generals, including
Ney. They ate heartily and then re«
tired to an adjoining room. Napoleon
stalked up and down for some min
utes, his eyes fixed upon the floor. Sud-i
denly he stopped before Cauialaoourtj
and said:
"I will abdicate."
"Sire," said Moncey. "you are sa"
ing Franoe."
After some discussion, Napoleoq
added: "I have desired the glory an^
happiness of France. I have not suc^
ceeded. I abdicate and retire."
On April 11 the formal act of abdi
cation wbb delivered to the Allies and

Because of a broken car the second
section of the Sells-Floto circus did
not reach here until nearly noon,
causing a delay in the day's program.
The parade was not held until 2:30
o'clock and the circus was given at 3.
All is in readiness, however, for the
performance this evening.
It was nearly 1 o'clock before the
"big top" was up but the machinery
used in the erection of this tent made
it possible to put it up very soon after
it arrived on the grounds.
In spite of the late hour, hundreds
of people lined the streets for the
great parade.
First came a group of gorgeously
costumed girls, proclaiming with
blasts on their bugles the advance of
Col. W, F. Cody, who followed Im
mediately behind. The rest of the
cavalcade was made up of elephants,
caged wild animals, dromedaries, sa
cred cattle, and the rest of the beasts
which are accustomed to appear in
circus parades. The section represent
ing the circus proper was followed by
the performers, Buffalo Bill's wild
west show, cowboys and ranch girls,
U. S. artillerymen and Sioux braves.
The air was fairly saturated with mu
sic from ten bands and two calliopes,
one of which represents an innovation

One of me mosit notable features of

Cincinnati, O., July 10.—The police
are puzzled over the finding of the
mutilated body of Edward Feagan, a
non-union carpenter foreman of Nor
wood, a suburb, in a sub-cellar of a
building here. The man had been
beaten to death but from appearances
he had put up a valiant fight for his
life. The authorities have no clew as
to who his assailents were or how he
came to be in the sub-cellar. A strike
of union carpenters has been in pro
gress here for three months. Ac
cording to fellow workmen, Feagan
was 76 years old, but very actiye for
his age.
Chicago, July 10.—"The 'gang' is the
key to all work with boys and the
gang' is a natural instinct of boy
hood and not an invention of the dev
il," said G. Walter Fiske, of Oberlin
university, before the Sunday school
institute at the University of Chicago.
"To redeem the boy it is necessary
to redeem the gang," he -continued,
for it is easier to save boys wholesale
than retail. Public opinion for the boy
is the gang, not his pious relatives nor
his father and mother. With his gang,
the boy is naturally on the square,
while with outsiders he may lie or
steal consistently: for the boy has one
code of ethics with his gang and an
other outside of it."
A large number of out of town peo

majority of farmers drove their own

handsome beasts which served as
mounts for the riders, there were
some magnificent animals to draw the
cages and band wagons. Four of th«
curious creatures which Uncle Sam
calls hynies appeared as a part of the
equine display.
The performance this afternoon fea
tured a half dozen bits of human and
animal prowess that deserve special
mention. First is Capt. Dutch Ricardo,
the trainer of a splendid group of lions
and tigers. It is seldom thit a circus
carries a troupe of trained beasts such
as these, and the trainer's masterful
handling of his dangerous pupils was
very remarkable. Parallel with this
feature runs Mile Zora's herd of per
forming elephants. Every circus, of
course, has some traijied elephants, but
Mile. Zora is an exceptional trainer.
The horses were given a good chance
to exhibit their accomplishments in the
performance of the ioyal troupe of
terpsichorean horses, which have mas
tered the intricacies of the waltz, two
step and even the tango. The DeJemtad
troupe of living models gavo a good
representation of sculptural art and
the auto polo teams introduced a sport
which is somewhat new to this part of
the country. Finally, in conjunction
with the regular circus, there is Buffalo
Bill's company of wild west perform
ers, broncho busters, rejl fel lndTans,
cowboys and ranchers.
The show is all that was promised
in advance. It has become one of the
leading attractions of the nation and
there are many who believe it the most
entertaining circus on the road today.
Washington, July 10.—A campaign
pulblicity bill, amending and codifying
the present law regulating campaign
contributions and expenses, but making
few changes of importance, was passed

Now the bill goes to the senate, where
it may be changed materially If it is
accepted at all.

amount not exceeding the aggregate
