A hail insurance swindler, repre senting some mutual concern, sold large numbers of hail insurance pol icies in Marlon, S. D., and vicinity at the low rate of 1 per cent straight. At this remarkably low rate he did a flourishing business until some body's policy arrived and he took it to town to have it looked over.

INTERESTING TILE OF BUSY LIFE Owen Young Tells of His Ex periences in the Land of the Cactus Plant. Owen Young who has just returned from a six months' sojourn in the wilds of Nevada has quite an entertaining story to tell of his adventures and ex periences in that land of cactus and sage brush. He spent most of the time far out on the frontier where there Is nothing to be seen save the ever pres ent plain simmering with the heat at noonday and drinking in the cooling breezes at night. The climate is remarkably peculiar in that you can figure on at least 350 days of sunshine every year, and not have more than fifteen in the doubtful column. The mercury ist's during the day to something like 130 in the shade and the man who has some inclination to work finds it a rather difficult proposition. Hut so soon as the shadows fall the temperature does the same thing and blankets are required for comfort at night. This is a pecul iarity of all desert climates and is so because the lightness of the soil and the rarity of the atmosphere do not retain the force of the sun's rays. Mr. Voting went 100 miles into the interior, making the distance by sta^e. On his return, however, he traveled ninety miles over a railroad which was being built into the country along the route lie had traveled on his first journey, the road being built while he was in the interior, and the rails are being pushed forward just as fast as it is possible to do so. In a few months the mining towns of the inter ior will be connected bv rail with the outside world. One of the amusing features of the Fourth of July celebration was an ad vertised boat race between two towns in the desert between which is a large range of mountaius. Another was a prize offered by one town to the citizen of the other who would jump from a six story building in the city making the offer, the amusing feature being that there was nothing in that, city in the way of buildings excepting tents. Mr. Young spent some time in Cali fornia and while that country is a sort of earthly paradise he does not think much ot' it as a business proposition. The city of San Francisco is a mass of ruins which will cost millions of dol lars to remove so that the work of re building may be commenced. They have had more than a hundred distinct earthquakes since the one which de stroyed the city, though the outside world has not heard of them. The peo ple who have lived there are not dis posed to take any chance on investing their fortunes in buildings again and if the city is rebuilt it will have to be done largely by outside capital, and hy men who do not realize the true con ditions. The railroads are just getting into some of the streets so as to aid in the work of clearing away the rubbish. Visit Sick Sister. Miss Paulina Fanske has arrived from Superior. Wis., to nurse her sis ter. Miss C. A. Fanske, who is serious ly ill. M. E. Ladles' Aid. The Ladies' Aid of the M. E. church will meet at the church parlors Wed nesday at 3 p. m.

Up till a late hour last night the re mains of Robert McMahon, the former Grand Forks young man drowned in the Mouse River at Mlnot Sunday, had not been recovered! Numerous charges of dynamite were exploded, but with out success. The swift current has likely swept the body a considerable distance downstream. V4»s' The ONTARIO Store P. W. Coler, Brother of Bird S, Coler, in Grand Forks En route From Algal^a "The majority of people in Alaska today, including those of Cape Nome, regard Alex McKenzie as a man of a big heart, a good fighter withal, and entirely innocent of the covert and underhand charges of fraud which have been given publicity In this coun try. The story of Re* Reach, entitled "The Spoilers," being an account of alleged misdeeds by McKenzie, is re garded as the tale of a sensational writer -who was simply endeavoring to create a market for his wares." The above statement was made to a representative of The Evening Times last night at the Great Northern depot by F. W. Coler of Nome, Alaska, a brother of Bird S. Coler, first comp troller of New York city, a candidate for the New York governorship against Oiell at one time, and a reputed mil lionaire. F. \V. Coler arrived in Seattle a week ago from Cape Nome, where, with his brother and other men he is Interested in the Northwestern Commercial company, a transportation concern operating a line of ships be tween Alaska and the United States, and also Interested in mining ventures in the far north. Mr. Coler stopped off in this city yesterdav noon enroute to Mackinac Island, Lake Superior, where he goes to visit his father and mother. I became acquainted with this man Beach when he was at Nome and knew at the time what was the object of his visit. The articles in Everybody's have been read by Nomers very generally, and, while perhaps amusing, did not, however, have the effect of creating any sentiment against McKenzie. Mr. Coler has been some five or six years in Cape Nome and expects to return after a short visit in the east. Motion for New Trial. A motion for a new trial in the case entitled Bergman vs. Sortie, tried at the present term of the district court and a verdict found for the plaintiff in the sum or $937, was argued before Judge Flsk this morning. Scott Rex appeared for the defendant, and B. O. Skulason for the plaintiff. Judge Flsk took the matter under advisement. Nine-tenths of the vicious gossip originates with loafers.
