While the first stone of Cologne ca thedral was laid on Aug. 15, 1248, ano cthe body ot the edifice was. not opened ontil Aug. 15, 1848, 600 years later to the very day, it was i^ot, however, ua til Aug. 15. 1880, that the splendid structure was finally reported complef ed, having thus occupied in building 'the record time of exactly 632 years. The castle of Kingsgoberg, which stands at the southern extremity of Jutland, tobk 204 years from the laying of the foundation stone to the rigging of its master's banner on its highest .flagstaff. Its foundation stone was the skull of its builder's bitterest enemy Three months afte/ its laying Count Jhorsing, the buildev of the cattle, was v. killed. His son was then in swaddling clothes. He did not continue his fa .ther's work until aged 24.

That there Is no end to the ways of imposing upon the suffering New York public was illustrated by the failure of a small store recently. The newly appointed receiver was, surprised by having many women come to, his office with credit checks. These checks were for small amounts, ranging from $1 to £10. At first the receiver couldn't un derstand it, but upon investigation he learned the details of a pretty system of fleecing. The firm". It seems, hacL mado a spe cialty of silk and cotton sliirt waists. These 'Were, With few exertions, shapeless, ill fitting garments, and whe£ the unfortunate women shoppers got home with their purchases and put them on they were disgusted to fitid that the bargain sale waigts wer«» baggy and puckery and altogether so poorly fashioned that it would be next to impossible to make thern^ fit even by a complete ripping up and remaking. Such being the conditions they invariably took the goods back and demanded other wiaists or thei* money. It was contrary to the prin ciples of the firm to refund money,' and as they seldom had. waists more becoming either in style or shape than the ones returned, they were driven to the extremity of credit checks. "We will get Jii a new supply of waists in a few days," was the suave assurance of the manager 'and. -b* well trained assistants. "Your check will be good at any time, and when we replenish our stock you can select a waist that suits you." But the new stock never arrived, and in spite of the good dollars received from deluded customers without de creasing their capital of waists, the flrin became insolvent and' then the women began to come with credit checks.

Funeral Services Over the Remains of the Late Alfred Dickey Held at Jamestown. Body Wa» Taken E^ist for Interment at the Old Home of the y'i.'- Deceased. Jamestown Capital: The remains of Alfred Dickey were sent east Sunday morning to Indianapolis, Ind., in care of H. P. Smart. Senator Casey accom panying him .part way At St. Paul the body was met by Alfred Dickey, jr., who came on from Indianapolis, where it is presumed the funeral will be held Tues day. Memorial services were held at the Methodist church Sunday evening, and addresses delivered by ex-Mayor Steele, Mayor Rose° and Rev. Phillips of the Congregational church. All had known him. and, been associated with him in business, church and social work for twenty years, and spoke feelingly of him as a man, neighbor and christian. From his life Mayor Rose drew a lesson to young men and Mr. Steel paid a fine tribute to his character and ability. Rev. Phillips said there is probably not another man in the city who had given so much to benevolence as Mr. Dickey—who gave in his own way and did not like to be asked. He first be came acquainted with him when the Sunday schools of the state were di vided, he and Mr. Dickey serving on the same committee, Mr. Dickey then being the superintendent of the Metodist Sun day school here. Those who knew him best l^ed him most. Pastor Danford said he had known Mr. Dickey for along time and hid received much advice from him. Mr. Dickey helped build th9 Methodist church at JjaMour^ and the parsonage at Dickey. He was the first president of theEp worth league of this city, and except for a mistake of the presiding elder would have been the second league formed in the United States. Mr. Dickey left property conserva tively estimated at $50,000, much of his wealth said to have been made in late years. The Masons and K. of P.s of this city counted Mr. Dickey an honored member of long standing.. Alfred M. Dickey was born in Shelby county, Indiana, June 10,. 1846. Before reaching', his 16th year he enlisted June 3,1862, for" three months as a private in Co. of the 14th Indiana volunteer in fantry. At the expiration of his term of service he re-enlisted as a private in Co. M. of the 1st Indiana heavy artillery, in which company and regiment he served until long after the war closed, receiving his honorable discharge Jan. 21, 1866, serving three years, seven months and eighteen days. He was a charter member of Wm. H. Seward post, G. A- R., of this city and his name stands thirteenth on the list. He was one of the youngest members then, being but 38 years old when the post was organized. In the only autobiographical sketch Mr. Diekey is known to have given he said very modestly: "For the 13 years proceeding my com ing to Dakota I resided in Crawfords ville, Ind., engaged in the book and sta tionery business. I was city treasurer gf Crawfordsville for five years, resign ing during my third term to become postmaster, which position I held until failing health forced me to resign. I came to the territory of Dakota for my health and think I have added years to my life by so doing. I was born a demo crat, but have been a republican ever since Sumter was fired upon. "I have been a farmer, bookseller, banker and real estate agent When one has done so little worthy ot public mention it is a discouraging task to tell it." The convention that defeated Gen. Harrison Allen and chose John Miller for the first chief executive of North Dakota also chose Mr. Dickey as the first lieutenant governor. It was in the days of great hopes' for the new state, then just born, and agriculture as the paramount material interest of the state was fully recognized. Mr. Dickey served hia state well and on the event of the World's fair was selected to repre sent this state aB chairman of the board of managers there. In late years he devoted his entire tin^p to his business interests here as a Stockholder and officer of the James River National bank and the Alliance Mortgage and Investment Co., limited. ofXondon, Shift,, of which he waa made general manager in the U. S. but a few weeks ago, 1 Be was & man of high attainments, keen and observant, with a strong and dominant will, possessed of $ firm and patriotic and ideas. r:'" He had traveled somewhfi '23- wVi Cuba and Porto Rico immediately after American occupation, and in his own way contributed quite freely to charita ble.objects. His free reading room was his latest beneficence. FORGER IN THE TOILS. Man Reported as Collins at Albert 4 Lea Is the Jamestown Check Artist. Jamestown, Jan. 29.—From Albert Lea, Minn., dipatches it is quite evident that Sam|||rihart has got into the hamjs of the l^ncfe' for forgery. A dispatch says he arrived there the 16th and regis tered at a hotel as J. C. Collins and wife of Chicago and was assigned to a room. A week later the clerk presented him with aboard bill and he did not pay,and later when pressed for the money pre sented a check for $72 drawn upon the Farmers and Merchants state bank of this city, purporting to have been drawn by "B. S. Trimble" in favor of Collins and dated Jan. 18, two days after he ar rived there. A telegram here told the Albert Lea bank—the Citizens—that the check was a forgery. In the meantime Collins was held in jail, he being unable to furnish the $500 bond exacted. It was suspected that the woman with him was not his wife, and being ejected from the hotel she was placed with the jailer's family she being without funds to get out of the city. It was at once suspected that Collins was an assumed name and it took but little effort to identify the man as Sam Lenhartof Minneapolis. Mr. Trimble, who is getting lots of notoriety as a good man to draw to, was written by the sher iff asking if he knew a man by the name of Lenhart and asking him to come down for the preliminary hearing the 29th.
