Bischoff's horses which was standing unhitched in front of his meat market concluded to have a little fun all alone early this morning and had that fun in the shape of a half hour run up the bluff, around the college building, down the bluff back of the school house and up Fourth and then again down Fifth avenue.

J. D. Wood, who is traveling for the Chicago Safe and Lock company, is in the city talking business.

There are some of the best theatrical attractions in the country coming this way soon.

Gus Williams, McRankin, Rhea and a number of others are already booked with Manager Klaus. The trains that arrive at the James town station and stop long enough for meals, are greeted with a chorus of bells triangles and refreshment solicitors that resembles a big union depot welcome. The pounding of the gongs is a new noise which regularly scares a number of people with the belief that afire has broken out, that being the fire alarm sig nal, still occasionally used. Some com plaints on this have been heard. Judge Hamilton returned last night from 'Bismarck where he west to look after some mortgaged property which some parties were endeavoring to spirit away. He says crops on the slope are looking exceedingly well and promise a big yield. While at Bismarck he met Wm. Reiley, well known in the southern part of the county, who was a witness to the murder of Stevenson at that place a few days ago, and is being held as a wit ness for the territory to await the trial of Stephenson's assailant. One of Stutsman county's bast farm ers, John Frey, brought into the market yesterday fourteen two and thro* year old head of stock, which he sold to Bisch off for some $400. This is but a single instance ^of how stock raising will pay in Dakota, as Mr. Frey states the cattle have turned, out for him much better than wheat. In connection with grain raising the Dakota farmer should assure his own prosperity and a good steady income by getting a little stock around him as soon as possible. Some of the boys who came up from Fargo on the accommodation last night say that W. C. Tubbs, the versatile travel ing salesman for the Minneapolis dry goods firm of Wyman, Mullin & Co., who left the train at Valley City to mail some letters and returned to the depot just as the caboose was fading away in the dim twilight of the Occident, threw off his coat, unbuttoned his suspenders and gave chase. The wheels turned too fast for the dry goods man, however, and when he reached the next station he gave up the race and telegraphed to have his valise etc., evicted along with his baggage at Sanborn. The joke of the matter is that several other traveling men who were on the train watched the race from the rear platform and shouted encouragement from a distance but failed to make any effort to have the train stopped.
