The Ladies of the German Lutheran church will give a fair and oyster supper the first wetk in November. The Alert commends this enterprise as well as the similar one by the ladies of the Catholic church the last week in this month. Both will no djubt be pleasant entertainments. The members of the congregational church at Spiritwood will give a niusi cale on the evening of the 23d of this month which promises to be a fioe enter tainment, The proceeds of the occasion will be devoted to the interests of the church at that place which promises to become a very flourishii organization in a few months.

Old John Robinsons show outm was badly wrecked, several laborers kiikd and a large number wounded last Satur day night while on the way by train from Wahpeton, Dak., to Fergus Falls Minn. The coupling of the first sectioD of the train which was loaded with wagons broke while on an up grade and twelve cars, the three hindmost of which were sleepers for the work gang, started back down the grade rapidly increasing in speed every moment. After running a mile or two and having attained a terrific rate ot speed it collided with the engine of the second rectum smashing the sleep ing cars, in which the laborers were sound asleep, to atoms. The night was intensely dark and the cries and groans of toe wounded made a scene of fearful horror. The wreck was cleared as soon possible and the wounded cared for. HEALTH. Happliieaa Depending Almost Entirely on Condition of Body and Mind. According to our views of life, health is the most desirable thing that apper tains to this present life. We so be lieve because man was created to enjoy himself, and please his Creator. If this were not so we should be obliged to charge Deity with imperfec tion, in that He hail uo settled oblei't iu the creation of man. Man's mental and physical constitut'ons in connec tion with the vast creations around him, their power to give happiness to man, is in proof that man was created for his own pleasure on earth, as well as for the pleasure of his Creator. Now as happiness in lie depends al most entirely on the health of the body and mind, it behooves us to inquire what are the peculiar conditions which will best promote physical and mental health. Physical health depends on various circumstances, as the too wo eat. as to its quality and quantity the exposure we endure as to heat and. cold the exposure to miasmata, or to the spores of vegetable or animal life which lodge in tue mucus membranes, are taken into the circulation and mul tiply to such an extent as to endanger and often destroy life. If when young the stomach is given double the work that it is able to do, it is plain that functional derangement must en sue, and if persisted in, disease, dis organization and death must follow. If we expose ourselves to the miasmat ic exhalations of swamps and sluggish streams, we are pretty sure to suffer the pains of fever and ague, remittent or tvpho'd fevers. If we imprudently ex pose ourselves to intense cold or wet too long, we are in danger of acute in flammations in those organs most ex posed or from weakness the most liable to take on disease. It is through the careful study of the cau-es aud effects as applicable to the human organ iza on that knowledge is to be acijured which can be made available in the preservation of health. The action of foreign bodies on the system taken into the stomach must be studied with care, and this through anatomy and physiology of the organs of the body. The original intention of the Creator, as related to the functions and powers of the body, must be studied in connection with those things both physical aud mental which produce an effect on them. The experience of ages condensed in book form, and our own critical obser vations added thereto, are what we have to depend on as a guide in the educa tion of each and every organ of the whole system. The nice point in this education is in giving just enough of legitimate food to each organ, so that the aggre gated whole shall be in harmony with itself and all its surroundings. If the thing is over-done bad results show themselves, as for instance, if we teach alimentiveness to gobble all within reach, dyspepsia or inflammation will follow attended with suffering—if ac quisitiveness is falsely educated, the person is little, stingy and is very apt to be tempted to theft or other crime to gratify its greed for gold—if veneration is over-educated, the person neglects his business, squanders his money, be comes deranged, and often such es trangement of mind leads to suicide. Every organ of the brain is liable to be falsely educated, as well as to be wrongfully neglected. In either case difficulty comes—effects follow that cur tail more or less the happiness of the person, and hence it is evident, that to make the most perfect man requires a harmonious education of the whole. YVe are too apt to go to extremes, so much so that many of the faculties are sadly neglected. As a sample take the profession of law. The lawyer is educated to make the worse appear the better cause. He is taught that next to his own financial interests are the interests of his clients. A murderer arraigned for trial is bound to be cleared if the lawyer can doit. It matters not what the means used though his lawyer knows that his client is guilty yet he uses all his finesse, all his duplicity, all the false logic he can command to turn the guilty one loose, to again imbrue his Hands in blood. And this exclusive and specific educa tion of lawyers is what has cursed this courftry with unholy laws and forged chains for the people. It is almost self evident that man's happiness individu ally and collectively hinges on the kind and degree of education given and whether it be confined to few organs, or evenly and appropriately distributed to all. 5Iothers, please do not try to make precocious intellects or to educate any given group of organs to the ex clusion of the rest Give a general dif fused and rational education to all the organs of mind and you will have done a great favor to the child and a duty to yourself and the world. —li. K. Slosson, in Western Rural. Mineral Waters. It is remarkable how the taste for natural and artificial mineral waters has grown in the last fifteen years. Well-to-do people rarely drink plain water. They have been led to prefer mineral or aerated drinks. It is ques tionable whether it is wise to introduce into the system the salts, sodas and long list of minerals which are held in solution in these naturally prepared waters. Some of them act powerfully on various parts of the system. News comes that there is a new water, pre pared in Paris, that does not seem to be open to any objection, for it is simply distilled water charged with oxygen. Nine-tenths of the water used for drink ing contains substances in solution de leterious to the human system. Never theless diseases result from the use of ordinary water. If distilled, however, and kept from the air, the fluid thus ob tained is innocuous. This, added to oxygen, ought, on general principles, to be wholesome, but those who can not get this gas would do well to dis till, or at least boil, all the water they drink but no mineral water should be partaken of unless under the advice of a physician.—DemorcsCs Monthly. —William F.

A Dreamer Who Did Mot Even Awake at Sedan. Napoleon HI. lived in a perpetual dream. He was born to dwell in silence and solitude rather than in the din and splendor of the Tuileries. I have seen him at the Elysee and at St. Cloud seeking out a tree, and not a man. On many days he never awoko at all he was a somnambulist, and sub ject to hallucinations. This is why when people stood in his presence they asked of themselves if lie was still there. Often he appeared not to hear, because he answered not. But on the morrow he proved to you that he had heard distinctly. He thrust the cup from realitv, even when the cup was not tinged With bitterness. He loved everything from afar, even womankind. When he was at table he ate heartily and drank tolerably, but without know ing whether the cooking was good or the wine of genuine stock, hen he went to the Bois de Boulogne it always seemed as if he were there for the first time, so few faces did he recognize. He saluted with his hand, but not with his m'nd. Hence it was those about him often said: "What can he be thinking of?" His political enemies wrote that he only thought of betraying France. On the contrary, he only thought of making France great aud invincible. He desired that everybody should be rich and that the fowl in the spot spoken of by Henry IV. should be a chimera no more. For the tyrant had a heart of gold. The dread of reality, while it raised him in the cloud-land of reverie, kept lrim away from truth. Therefore it was that after the celebrated Congress of Paris he committed none but capital errors. Therefore it was that, having declared that the Empire was peace, he waged war for the sake of others. He fancied himself still a believer in the the strength of the Latin races when he wished to have an Emperor crowned in 51exlco. lie did not perceive, so blind was he, that while he strove to govern the world he sacrificed France. That everlasting dreamer, who did not even awake at Sedan, was :i sort of ice-bound hell, paved with good inten tions. He partook of De Saint-Pierre's longings for perpetual peace. He gathered inspirations from all the re formers who planned the happiness of nations. He retained in liis soul the generosity of Queen lioriense and of Josephine, his mother and grandmother. He never refused aught except to him self. That man who iiad so many enemies was not his enemies' enemy. Two days after the coup d'etat he thought of the amnesty. lie read "Les Chatimcnts" without* faltering in his admiration of Victor Hugo. 1 le desired toenrich Laniartine—another dream.

People spoke ot his leaden eye and even of his slupiditv. which was at one time legendary, but ben eat ha mask of impassiveness lie concealed the lire that consumed hiiu. lie was hardly ever the man of action on guard at the fates of the Louvre as at the gates of ranee. As lias been said, he believed in his star, in the superior government of things, as Bossuet puts it. That man who loved adventures and feared noth ing bore not audacity on his face. At first sight he was not thought capable of filling an imporiaut part. He was small, he walked badly, he did not shine, nothing about hiiu appeared en dowed with life, neither his hair, nor his eyes, nor his mouth. Vet when speech or a smile animated him you felt that he was a man. On horseback par ticularly he broke li Itoiuls and ac quired some maje-ty. At table, too, he looked well, for he was all bust When he donned his uniform lie had somewhat the air of a conqueror. No one doubted his bravery. In that strange life of his uiie scarcely detects here and there hi- will, so much did he waver between yes and no. Like a painter impressed with the idea of grandeur and beauty, lie aspired to ev erything. P.ut he stopped s'.ort at the sketch, not being gifted as arc the mas ters of the world. Hence his person ality, which he wished to be glorious, will remain in half-tint: history will only devote to him pages wherein the shadows will cover the light, -fhms.saye. Shad in the Columbia River. There has been some doubt expressed in several quarters as to whether the shad caught in the Columbia River were true shad, and descendants of those planted in 'alifornia waters some years since. One reason for the doubt was that while the shad in California have attained their full growth, weigh ing six pounds or nimv. the shad caught in the 'olunibia this season •vere, with few exceptions, no longer •an those caught, last year, and very of them weighed over two pounds. has, however, been established be yond doubt that the shad caught in the Columbia River are real shad. The Oregonian is in receipt of a communi cation from Hon. Spencer F. Baird, United States Commissioner of Fish eries, stating that several samples of the fish in question have been received by him, from examination of which he has been enabled to determine the facts in the case, and that there is no doubt whatever as to the occurrence of shad in the Columbia River. This settles the matter, and we shall hereafter be en abled to wrestle with the bones in these fish with more complacency. —Portland Oregonian. —"Look here!

A Creature Mot Likely to Be Affected by Dietary Change*. Custom in matter of diet is constant ly changing, but there is not likely to be a revolution that will in the least af fcct the 'possum. Ilcnry Clay, on a memorable occasion, was employed to defend a man against the charge of murder. His opponent, a lawyer from distant State, was a powerful antag onist, and, armed with many absolute facts, it was clear that Clay would be defeated. After using every argument that lay within his great reach, and seeing that his words were having no effect on the jury the skillful orator, as a last resort, said: 5Iy fellow kentuckians, you all know that I would not lift my voice in an attempt to defeat just'ee, for the su premacy of the law must be maintained, but, my fellow Keiiiiickians, there are times when a man is justifiable iu tak ing human lite. The killing of Darb Moore by our friend. the defendant, was one" of lhe times. Why? I will tell you: Some time ago Darb, with out provocation, said that under no circumstances would lie eat a piece of 'possum. This was more than the de fendant could stand. He could endure abuse, he con hi put up with insulting insinuations, but. gentlemen, he could not bear to hear Kentucky's gem of the oven abused Now I ask you if he did not act humanely iu taking the life of the slanderer•••liie would-be despoiler of happy home--: lie tram pier upon Heaven-sent appelite? The jury, without leaving the box, re turned a verdict of not guilty. No, the 'po-«uni can not be sup planted. A baked -boat is very line, and a turkey is not bad, but in the opin ion of the "old Southerner-' they are only as chal)' when compared to the 'possum. Attorneysicucral (larland. to use the expression of an old negro who used to cook for him. "is monstrous fond o' 'possum."' Several years ago Mr. liar land, carrying.! basket on his arm. was met by a friend. "Good morning. Senator. You seem to have lost llesh. What is the mat ter "1 hardly know." the Senator re plied, "but 1 think 1 must be suffering from dyspepsia. I have no appetite at all. Yesterday, during the entire day, I only ate a coiude of 'possums.'" "lam orry u» hear that you are in such poor health." "Yes, it's had. I bought three 'pos sums dowu on the market just now and as 1 am still suffering from loss of ap petite, I shall cat them to-day." Nothing is more deeply touching than he negroes'love of 'possum. It is an all'cctiou pure and simple. The 'possum and the persimmon get ripe about the same time. The sweet potato comes first, but like a well dis ciplined ally, it patiently awaits the coming of the other force-'. Arkansaw Tra refer. LATE WITH." An Interesting Jiiiiit'hil Decision by an Kantern Court. It is a very common practice for a man starting in business to announce himself on his sign and business cards as "late with"' so and so, his former employer. Has a person any right to do this? Can he le prevented by legal means from so n-ing the name of his former employer? An opinion on this novel and inter esting question has ju-a been reudered by Judge Westbrook. of the Supreme Court in this State. A jeweler who had been employed in a jewelry store opened a shop of his own in the same town. On his sign and business cards he used the words late with James P. Van Wyck." The latter complained that the effect of this announcement would be to take away his customers and in jure liis business. There was no alle gation of fraud. Judge West brook holds that the defendant had no right to make such use of the name of liis former employer. He -ays: "Nothing is more completely the property of a man than his name. No person can use itw thont the owner's consent. The use of plaintiff's name to make con spicuous the rival business and name of the defendant is a clear violat'on of the property rights of the plaintiff." Judge Westhrook does not cite any authority or precedent in support of this view, lie reaches his conclusion by reasoning. We think the conclusion wrong and the reasoning unsound. When a person has been for a long or a considerable time in the service of a business hon-e or firm widely and fa vorably known that fact raises a pre sumption of his capability to carry on the same bu.-iness for himself. It is a fact which, in tho absence of fraud or unfair dealing, he lias a right to an nounce to the public. In niusio or art it would seem ridiculous to deny to a Eersen the ri»ht truthfully to represent imeelf or herself as the pupil of a well-known teacher or artist. The principle is the same in business. This view of the law has been taken by our Court of Appeals. A firm of dentists dissolved partnership. One continued business in the same place, the other opening another office. The Court of Appeals held that the former had no right to represent himself as successor to. "But," said the court, "he may lawfully describe himself as formerly or late of that linn. He would thus state simply a fact be'onging to his own life, as much so as If he were to give the time or place of birth, the name of his father or instructor, or the college from which he graduated. All this might be done in good faith." A'. V, hera'd. A Puzzled Subscriber. The subscriber of a conteinj orary walked into the oflice one day recently and said to the clerk: "I see a lot of puffs about your paper in to-day's issue taken from country exchanges." "Yes," said the clerk. "They arc spontaneous outbursts of enthusiasm and go to even up an exchange with those fellers." •'Well, 1 don't know anything about that, but to read these notices makes one think that sometimes you get some thing good in your paper and I just called in to say I wish you'd send me the same edition you send those fellers, for, as it id, I'm" getting left."'—Pitts burgh Telegraph.
