BIG FIRE AT MAPLETON,
The Best Part of Mttjilefon G«ien «js in SMOKO— LORIS $35,000* MAPJJETON, Duk., Dec. 10.—Between 12 and 1 o'clock this mommy liro broke in Mitchell's barn and spread rapidly over town. The N. P. elevator with 85, 000 bushels of wheat caught liro, but tho building was savod by buckets of snow carried to tho top of the structure. Tlie loss is about $35,000 with 813,500 in surance. Fargo's Fire department was called to the sceno and was instrumental in saving much property. The origin of the fire is unknown, but generally sup posed to be incendiary. Of Interest to Settlers. Judge Hamilton has received notice that Acting Land Commissioner Stock alager has sustained the appeal of the claimant in the case of tho final proof of Henry Weston, a farmer living north of Eldridge, which pi oof was rejected by the Fargo land office on the ground that the claimant did not show five years continu ous residence. The facts in reganl to residence and improvements are as fol lows: Mr. Weston's residence covered six years and twenty-eight days,and his actual residence was four years and twenty-eight days. He had spent four winters in Michi gan—one because of the serious illness of his father another caused by the death of his father, and two subsequent absences, caused by the illness of his wife, who suf fered with rheumatism and was not able to endure the severe Dakota winters. Mr. Weston, however, had raised six crops and had improvements valued at 82,150. Acting Commissioner Stockslager, after looking over tho papers, decided that tho claimant had acted in good faith and that his absence was excusable, and accord ingly sustainod the appeal. This decis ion establishes a precedent l'or others similarly situated, who had given up hopo of ever getting a proof through .under the Sparks regime. Married.

Pelissier, a farmer and pioneer who lives near this place, and vho takes hunters occasionally into tho oo teaux to find big game. Extending Mileage Limits. On and after Jan. 1st, as Clias.
