WASH IXC. TON TEKKITO RY.
A Young Man from Dakot.i Stuck ill the Mild and Doad-Iiro'.,-' Bewails His Mistake. Mr. Frinc Bau man, of Valley City, re cently left for Tacoma. Washington ter ritory, saying that he hail received a let ter from his son to the effect that there -was plenty of labor and a great placo for furs, says the Alliance of that place. Now Mr. Bauinan probably stood on his head and read the letter, for a gentle man, in cleaning out the rooms occupied by Mr. .Banman. found a letter written by Louis Bauinan. at Tacoina, to his father, under date of December loth, of which the following synopsis is made: "DEAK FATHKK: I am here in Tacoma I wish I never came hero, lor the coun try is overfilled with men. Here a man couldn't get work if he would work for his board. This country is very bright if a man got lots of money, but the way I am fixed very little. One dozen of eggs cost 40 cents a doxen. I would like to come back to Valley City, but no monev to come with—this is hard. I don't "know what will become with me no monev no work and 1700 miles from Valley City. help me. Can't you do something for me? It costs a man to Valley City, second class. $35. I only wish I had so much to go back with. I haven't a cent of money to mv name. I am boarding with Rev. Hanson, for I got to I couldn't stop in the hotel without money. I am sick of stopping there for them big lubbers are there too. They haint working either, and Lena is sick, and you know when there is sick people in the house they don want to have strangers around. Dcai* father you don know how I feel I teel dead, bend mo money—send it nuick for 1 like to come home again. Don't is forget out your son what in Tacoma away out west irom home. Remember your poor son lost in the west. Send it soon. This appeal should have been respond ed to by Mr. Jjauman, but he packed up and, with his family, went to Tacoma to see if he couldn't .strike a streak of luck. Louis ign't the first one that has cussed Dakota, declared it dead and gone hence and then, after a time writes that they would like to get back to Da kota again. The return of tho whole Bauman family is looked for in the spring. A "KOOSTI-jll" PARTY. Alderman J. A. Dole Celebrates the Forty-Secoml Anniversary o!" his Xatal Day. February eight is the anniversary of Alderman John Dole's natal day. and last Thursday a number of invited guests -all of the masculine persuasion—assembled at his handsome residenco to celebrate with him the auspicious occasion. An abundance of amusement was provided for the diversion of the guests, and the time glided quickly on until half past ten when supper was announced. The guests were seated before a collation that would have done honor to the cui sine of experienced caterers. All did full justice to the edibles, which called forth many flattering compliments for the host's amiable helpmeet. Supper over, the guests repaired to the parlors where, with a few neat and well-chosen words, ex-Mayor J. J. Flint presented the genial alderman with an elegant plastic marble clock on behalf of the guests. Although considerably surprised Mr. Dole arose and responded happily and appropri ately. At a late hour the guests dispersed, each expressing the wish that the host may be spared to celebrate many other similar anniversaries. A Hopeful View. J. B. Folsoin. in Fargo Republican Judging from the number of inquiries I am receiving, I believe the demand for Dakota lands this year will be considera bly greater than it was last year. The late blizzard has attracted attention to Dakota, but it will not have an unfavora ble effect on the northern portion of the territory. On the contrary, it will. I think, have a favorable etiect. The facts, as published, show that the loss of life, and suffering among stock were confined almost wholly to South Dakota. There were no fatalities worth speaking of in North Dakota, and in Cass and adjoining counties there were none at all. This, taken in connection with the great suf fering and loss of life from the blizzard in the eastern states will do us good in stead of harm. Creamery Matters. Work on the creamery building lias been slightly interfered with by the cold weather, but Mr. Smith, who has charge of the building operations, states that men have worked at least a portion of a day right through this cold weather. He still thinks the building will be com pleted ready for the machinery by Mon day. Ice is now being packed for iise in butter making this summer. Mr. Smith says that his construction company has contracts for the erection of six creameries in the territory, all of which must be completed by May 1st. Valley City, LaMoure and Grand Forks each secure one of these. Funeral Services. The runeral services over the remains of Fred Newhauser were held} Thursday noon at the residence on Fifth avenue north. Quite a number of the friends of the decessad and family were present. Services were conducted by Rev. N. D. Fanning. The remains were interred at the Highland Home cemetery. Card of Thanks. The Hanover, Mich. Times of Feb. 4th, contains a notice of the late M. A. Ryan of Windsor, who perished in the blizzard of the 12th of last month, and the follow ing card of thanks from Mrs. Ryan. Editor of Times: I desire to thank thromrh your paper the friends in Dakota and Hanover for their assitaoM and sympathy in my bereavement in the loss of my husband, words are inadequate to express them. Great kindness was ex tended to me by tho Northern Pacific, Wis. Central and L. S. & M. S. railroad companies, and Mr. Risk the agent at Windsor, especially, I always will re member with gratitude. Mits. M. A. RVON. F! UK Ml'PKD IN THK BUD. The Residence of David Posey Catches Fire—Flames Quickly Ex tinguished. Jamestown narrowly escaped another loss by firo early Friday morning. J. S. Martin, who lives on Eighth avenue south, near the river, turned out of his warm bed about four o'clock to see if it were not pretty near breakfast time. Upon ascertaining tho hour, he started to return for a second nap but saw alight streaming in through ono of his windows. The light at so unseasonable a time of night, or rather morning, excited Mr. Martin's curiosity, and it was well that it did, for upon investigation flames were found issuing from the roof of the house occupied by David Posey, a neighbor. Mr. Martin immediately gavo tho alarm, and without taking time to throw on all of his clothing, proceeded to the house and endeavored to awaken the occupants, which was accomplished by breaking the glass in a bedroom window and shouting through the opening. By this time Mr. Elliott, another neighbor, had arrived at tho scene, and by meaus of a ladder and a number of buckets of water, the flames were extinguished. A hole the size of a large table was burned through the roof. The fire was discovered just in time, and luckily the damage was slight. ASTROXOMTCAIi OBSERVATIONS. Something About the Partial Eclipse of tho Sun "Which Occurs Satur day. There will le a partial eclipse of the sun on Saturday the 11th instant, but the eclipse is visible only in the Antarc tic, South Atlantic, and South Pacific oceans, and the southern extremity of South America that is it is visible only in the neighborhood of the south pole. This is about two. weeks after the eclipse of the moon, previously referred to by The Alert. The uioon has passed through half its orbit since then, when it was in opposition, in a direct line with the earth and the sun, so that the earth's shadow fell upon it. As the moon can only be eclipsed when it is full, so the aun can only be eclipsed at the time of new moon, when the moon passes be tween the sun aiid the earth, and partial ly or fully obscures the soJar luminary. If the moon passed at every new moon exactly between the centres of the sun and earth, we should have a great eclipse of tho sun at every new moon, and a total eclipse of the moou at every full moon: but the moon's orbit or path makes an angle with tho plane of the ecliptic of about 5 1-7 degrees, conse quently at new and full moon it is usually above, or below the line of the ecliptic. Eclipses of the sun are more frequent than of the moon because the sun's ecliptic limits are greater than tho moon's, yet we have more visible eclipses of the moon than of the sun, because eclipses of the moon are visible from all parts of the earth where the moon is above the hori zon, and are equally great to each of those parts but eclipses of the sun are visible only to those places upon which the moon's shadow falls. The greatest number of eclipses that can take place in a year are seven five of the sun and two of the moon. The least number that can take place in a year are two and both must be of the sun. MONTPELIER. Mr. and Mrs. H. A. Shaver, when on their way to town last Friday, narrowly escaped having a runaway. The horses feeling pretty frisky, one kicked out side ways toward the other horse. The foot went down over the tongue, which badly frightened the team. Mrs. Shaver think ing he would not be able to manage them jumped from tho sleigh and was thrown on her head, but fortunately was not hurt any more than having a lame neck. Mr. Shaver soon checked the team, re turned and gathered up his scattered load, then started for town again. Mrs. Wellnian is feeling quite encour aged under the treatment of Mr. Nazv who claims to b£ quite a cancer doctor. The young people, a few in number met at Mr.Remmington's lastWednesdav evening to enjoy a merry hop. They meet at Mr. J. Villar's Tuesday evening for the same purpose. Mr. J. Smith is making preparations to train his colt, and with new cutter and harness, it looks as though he was about readv to commence. "Will Continue the Search. Although searching parties have scoured the country, no traces have been found of Robert Gleason, the young Pin gree farmer supposed to have perished in the blizzard of last month. A brother living in Illinois, who had been notified of the circumstances, arrived from the east on Friday and went up the Northern oi Friday to continue the search and find the body of his brother, if as is gen erally supposed, he fell a victim to the cold. A Card Party.

Carley, one of the prosperous and progressive farmers of tho Montpelier neighborhood, writes the North Dakota Farmer ,giving his experience in raising corn, which is now looked upon with considerable favor in North Dakota, the experience of the past year or two having demonstrated that it is not only a practi cal but also a profitable crop to grow. Being the results of practical experience Mr. Carley's observations may be of value to any who may contemplate plantin corn this year. He says: I have grown com in Stutsman county every year since 1880, and have had ma tured seed corn every season except one. If the farmer plants corn he can snap his fingers at the feed dealer, even in a dry season, instead of paying for feed out of the receipts of his wheat crop. Care should be taken to select a varie ty of corn that will mature early, and at the same time produce a good supply of fodder, which will pay all expenses of raising the crop. I have tested various kinds of corn, and find the Canada Smutt gives the best results, considering both corn and fodder. Stalks grow about 6f. feet high, with two, and frequently threo ears to the stalk many of them attaining a length of 12 inches. It is the earliest of Hint varieties, except the Little Squaw corn. I have raised this corn eight years in succession in Dakota, arid find that it grows earlier each year. The Little Squaw corn is a few days earlier, but is sadly deficient in value for fodder. Of dent varieties I have raised the Pride of the North with good results, but as it does not sucker, the fodder is not as good as with flint corn. Resolutions. The funeral of Fred Newhauser Thurs day afternoon was under the auspices of the A. O. U. W., and about thirty members of the order turned out to at tend the services. The following resolu tions were adopted at a special meeting of the lodge, held Wednesday night: Whereas, The sudden and unexpected end of our brother. Ferdinand Newhau ser, stricken down by the grim angel death, in the sunshine and vigor of early manhood bringing sorrow upon his household, his loved ones, and upon our fraternity bids us pause and contem plate the mystic words of our order— charity, hope and protection. With charity for His faults and hope for his fu ture, we throw around his family the strong arm of protection—the Ancient Order of United Workmen. Resolved, That in the loss of our brother. Ft. Seward lodge No. 1G, MICHAEL A. O. U. W., loses one who lias long been a faithful, patient and loyal workman, zealous for th« advancement of the order and of this lodge: that his painstaking work as recorder deserves our apprecia tion and gratitude. Resolved, While words fail to express the grief of the loved wife of our brother, and human sympathy vainly tries to ef fect condolence for such suffering as hers, it is with sincerity that we tender her our heartfelt sympathy in this her hour of deep distress. Words do but feebly express the emotions of our hearts suf fice it to say we mourn with her for him who has gone. Resolved That a page of our journal be inscribed to his memory, and the light of his good deeds and services serve as a beacon to guide all to still greater efforts to carry forward the divine mission of the order. Let these resolutions be spread upon the records let them be read at his grave and a copy thoreof transmitted to his widow. H. SCHMITZ, CLARENCE SELVIDGE, NICHOLAS MUELLER, Committee. RIO REALITIES.

The New England Dinner and Supper a Pronounced Success in Every Particular. Tho ladies of the Presbyterian church are royal entertainers they have hereto fore scored many triumphs in the social, fair and supper line, but Friday night they quite outdid themselves. The absence of the stately dullness and monotony that frequently mars the enjoyment on similar occasions was particularly notice able. Novel and taking features were presented and the evening was one con tinuous merry-go-round of pleasure and excitement. As was the case with the dinner, the supper was numerously par taken of the estimated number being placed in the neighborhood of two hun dred. Shortly after seven o'clock the series of contests was inaugurated with the sew ing match. Gentlemen were seated at a long table, furnished with needle, thread and pieces of cloth, and proceeded to stitch for the cake that was to go to the lucky winner. Ex-Gov. Pierce, Mayor Graham, Prof. Denny and nearly every gentleman in tho room undertook to demonstrate his proficiency with the needle, much to the amusement of the ladies who were witnesses to tho curious work of some of the novices. The com mittee, Mrs. C. T. Hills, Mrs. True and Mrs. E. J. White, after an examination of the work decided that Mr. Otto John son had clone the most artistic stitching, and accordingly when Mr. E. P. Wells announced the result of the contests, Otto took the cake. The sewing contest was undoubtedly hugely enjoyed by the ladies, who evinced considerable merriment when the treacherous needle pricked the finger of some unskilled manipulator, but the gentleman had their laugh a little later when the ladies attempted to do the car penter act in the sawing contest. A Ion 14-inch board was provided, and the ob ject was to saw five inohes deep and two inches from tho last line. Mrs. J. J. Flint opened the contest and was fol lowed by Mrs. J. M. Graham, Mrs. E. P. Wells, Mrs. John S. Watson and many others, each lady nominating her succes sor. Gov. Pierce, E. J. White and Frank Ingalls were the judges on this contest and awarded the palm to Mrs. Merry» who sawed into tho board exactly five inches at a distance of 2 1-1G inches from the last line. An inspection of the work after tho contest was over, demonstrated that some of the ladies were very poor judges of distances and as unskilled with the saw as some of the gentlemen were with the needle. At this point Mr. E. P. Wells announc ed that the grand march or parade of those in costume would occur, and named tho following judges, who took their places in the center: Most elegant ladies costume- -Dr.Cloes, H. B. Wood and Miss Lyon. Most ancient ladies costume A. A. Allen, Mrs. Wm Lloyd and W. E. Greene. Gentleman's costume—Miss Minnis, Mrs. Graham and O. H. Hewit. Group in modern costume—Mrs. Alfred Dickey, G. C. Steele and J. M. Graham. At the suggestion of Mr. Wells, this being leap year and only a few gentle men in costume, the ladies chose their escorts. The grand march was led by Mr. H. C. Flint and -Miss Maude Roper. Some of the good brethren whom the la dies inveigled into the march would oc casionally becomo entangled in the many evolutions, and afforded considerable amusement for the spectators. The judges awarded the prizes as follows: Gentleman's costume Master Clint White. Most elegant ladies costume Mrs. M. S. Wells. Most ancient ladies costume -Mrs. G. C. Steele. Group in character costume- -Miss Pierce, Miss Wells, and Messrs. Fred and Will Topi iff. Among tha ladies noted in costume were: Mrs. O. H. Hewit, Mrs. Warren Wet more, Mrs. Jno. S. Watson, Mrs. A. R. Hathorn. .Mrs. Joe D. Mills, Mrs. F. H. Chapman, Mrs. J. J. Flint. Mrs. G. C. Steele. Mrs. J. J. Roper. Mrs. True, Mrs. E.P. Wells, Mrs. C. T. Hills, Mrs. M. S. Wells, Miss Marguerite Wells. Miss May Pierce, and Miss Maude Roper. Not tho least enjoyable feature of the evening was the music. A choir, of about a dozen voices, made tho Armory reso nant with stirring and amusing college songs, and familiar hymns in which everybody joined. The voices blended with fine effect, and filled up the gap be tween the contests in a most acceptable manner. Miss May Pierce sang several solos, in the course of which the choir joined. Among the musicians noted were: Mrs. O. H. Hewit, Mrs. Joe D. Mills, Mrs. F. H. Chapman, Mrs. Geo. R. Top liff, Mrs. C. T. Hills, Mrs. G. C. Steele, Mrs. Wetmore, Mrs. J. W. Cloes, Mrs. Jno. S.Watson, Miss Porter, Miss Pierce, and Messrs. E. J. White, O. H. Hewit, C. L. Judd, F. H. Chapman and G. C. Steele. Miss Marguerite Wells and Miss May Pierce, as flower girls, swelled the receipts ten dollars by their Bales. The receipts of the entertainment prove its financial success, and are very gratifying to all interested. Mr. E. P. Wells figured them up this morning and found the total to be 8150.83. amounted to Expenses 825.83. leaving 8125 net re ceipts or clear profit to go into the treas ury of the Ladies Aid society of the church. Card of Thanks. Mrs. Fred Newhauser desires to ex press her deep sense of obligation to the r. 'W,- '4 friends who extended sympathy and as sisted her in her recent bereavement, to the members of Ft. Seward lodge A. EIJECTRIC O. U. W. for their brotherly interest and care, and especially to Mr. M. H. Schmitz. LIGHTING PROGRESS. Getting in Shape for the Arc Ijights— Fixtures for the Gladstone. The poles have all been set for the arc lights for city illumination, and the heavy wire over which the electrical current for these lamps will be conveyed is being strung at a rapid rate. -Yesterday the workmen succeeded in stringing several miles of this wire. Secretary' Rattinger of the company, states that applications from private parties to have their resi dences and stores wired are constantly received, but are temporarily pigeon holed until the arc system shall bo com pleted. Four poles one on each corner of the intersecting streets -are required for each of the city's large lights. Wires will be strung from each of these poles, and tho lump hung in the center. A pul ley arrangement by which the lamps can be raised and lowered for repairs, etc.. will be attached to ono of the poles for future convenience. It is impossible to state just when these lights will be ready, but work is progressing as rapidly as possible. Some elegant fixtures for the Glad stone's electric lights have arrived and been placed in position. A handsome brass mounted chandelier to which is at tached threo incandescent lights, has been placed in tho office four of the same kind, with the additional provision of shades for the lights, now illuminate the dining room, and a handsome chand elier, with colored globes and shades, hangs in the front parlor. Nine very handsome lamps have been provided for the halls and other parlors, by laying aside the coal oil appurtenances of the swinging lamps which formerly lighted the weary wayfarer through this well ap pointed hostelry, and suspending an in candescent electric light under the shade. Obituary. S. S. Thorsen, tho traveling man who has been sick at the Glad stone for the past two or threo weeks, died on Friday afternoon of hemorrhage of the lungs. Mr. Thorsen was caught on the Jamestown & North ern by tho blockade, and at that time contracted the sickness which finally re sulted in his death.'jHe was twenty-three years of age, and was employed as travel ing salesman for Kellogg & Johnson, a Minneapolis boot and shoe firm. His brother, T. J. Thorsen, of Croolsston, Minn., accompanied by his wife, have been here looking after his wants and comfort, for nearly two weeks. Ho has four older brothers all engaged with the same firm. The remains were taken to Minneapolis on the 10:30 train last night, and will probably bo interred at that city tomorrow. Frank Beals, Geo. L. W eb ster, R. E. Wallace, J. L. Chambers, G. A. Lieber and Chas. Rattinger acted as pall bearers. Died. Maggie, the sixteen year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. T. M.Grove,died Saturday morning at 11:30 o'clock. She has been sick for about a month with a serious at tack of spinal meningitis and death came not unexpectedly, her life having been despaired of for over a week. Maggie was an only child, bright, pleasant and popular among her associates, and' the blow is a sad one to Mr. and Mrs. Grove. The bereaved parents have the sympathy of their numerous friends in this their affliction. The funeral will occur to morrow afternoon at two o'clock, from the Presbyterian church. All is not. Gold that Glitters. Mandan Pioneer: A young man who was a passenger on Friday's west bound train, tried to work the railroad company for a ride. He had a ticket to Mandan. Here be visited the office of tho division superintendent and inquired if tho company did not want some help to run its road in the west, if so he was available, and was willing to show his good faith by accepting transportation to Spokane Falls. The road did not hap pen to want any extra assistance just at that moment, and tho young man was told so. He then went to. Mr. Sheriff the agent, and asked the price of a ticket to Spokane Falls. The price was quoted, and tho passenger handed out a number of bills and on top of the pile he handed a couple of shining coins which he in tended to pass off as $5 gold pieces. The train was about to start and quicker than aflasli he had his ticket and was off. But Mr. Sheriff noted that the alleged $5 pieces were very bright, and on investi gation he ascertained that they were one cent pieces. It. was a matter of only a few seconds for the young man to be brought back, and as he wanted to go west very bad, he produced the necessary funds. The nerve which never relaxes, the eye which never blanches, the thought that never wanders, these are the masters of victory. Warner's Log Cabin Hops and Buchu is nature's remedy for nervous diseases. Have the wisdom to try it. Only 81. College" Day Observances. Sunday was college day for the Pres byterians of North Dakota—being the day set apart by the synod to be utilized by the Presbyterian churches of the dis trict for the benefit of Jamestown college and the presentation of the institution's claims for support from the churches. The day was appropriately observed in tho Presbyterian church of this city. In the morning the regular sermon was o mitted and Rev. Mr. Fanning gave a very interesting address appropriate to the oc casion. In the evening Prof. N. M. Crowe had charge of the exercises, and cleliverdd a strong appeal for more gener -f al support of the institution. The music for the occasion was furnished by a choir picked from the college students, and composed of Misses Young, Gimlet, Elli ott, Porter, High, and Messrs. Wood and Wanner, with Mrs. Alfred Steel at tho organ. Indian Visitors. Two aboriginees registered at the Capi tal house on Sunday in the chirography of the white man, as John H. Strait and Wm. Twanjina. They were on the way to Ft. Totten from Helena, where they have been attending some sort of a school. A good portion of tho day was spent in purchasing "tobock" and sundry little trinkets which caught their eye and fancy. At J. L. Price's a young clerk in a clothing store, who thought to have some fun with the red men, undertook to quiz one of them, and the following dia logue ensued: "Have yon a girl?" In dian—"No." Clerk Why haven't you?" Indian—"It's a boy." Both the Indian and the clerk failed to appreciate the general laugh which followed. Advertised Letters.
