A Dakota Romance.
A Pittsburg paper has disclosed a romanoe that is of interest toDakotans. The young lady mentioned was a former well known Yankton bell, Miss Bessie Shannon. She is the daughter of Hop. P. C. Shannon, once chief justice of the territorial supreme court has just mar ried M. Benito Alligi, the French consul at Tqnis, Africa. The bride and groom tirst met several years ago at a convent school in France which Miss Bessie was attending. They were parted by a cable gram calling Miss Bessie to i'lttsburg, where her family then resided. Thfc family moved to Dakota, where an suitor, who had known her from child hood, renewed his vows. An engagement followed, Miss Bessie thinking her rench admirer had possibly forgotten her. bhe however, concluded to write him of her engagement, and on a Saturday previous to the day set for her marriage, which was about a month ago, she reeeived a cablegram from Tunis which simply said. "Don't -marry. Will write. Later the letter came, and the Frenchman made a fervent proposal for her hand. By the next steamer he arrived in Pittsburg, which place the Shannon family had re turned,and the marriage wasronsumated. The engagement with the Dakota "jan had previously been declared off, and the relative of the Shannons broke the news gently to the young man, who had come from the far west. The official society in Tunis is said to be extremely gay and the life that opens out before the young bride is likely to be socially extremely brilliant. Crop Notes. Kegister Canfield of New Kockford, made a flying visit to the city today. He reports the immediate vicinity of his town to be untouched by Jack Frost, but on the lower land of the Tiftany settle ment, east of New Bockford, the crop is somewhat damaged. W. E. Greene brought in from his farm today specimens of heads of wheat from which absolutely nothing could be hulled. There was only about 100 feet square of this, however, on his place—one little spot—while the grain on all sides is in iine condition. County Commissioners Woodbury and Eddy are busy in the harvest field. The latter has some nipped acres, but the former says the grain isall right as far as he can see. Judge Hay ward of St. Paul, Has a small field of some forty acres lying in a valley or low place near here, in which no berry can be found iu the head. Straw as well as heads are dead. Neigh bors fields all arqund, however, are in fane shape and unhurt. Messrs. Eldridge and Thompson of Da venport, la., drove out to the farms west of Jamestown yesterday afternoon. The crop is reported by Mr. Eldridge to be all right, and as far as he could tell was not damaged ten cents worth by the frost. The grain generally looks well on tins farm. A New Enterprise. The following personal from the Bis marck Tribune is significant: "Manny P'ye arrived from St. Paul on yesterday's express. He will have charge of the Jamestown branch of the Northwest Grain and Fuel company." It ifl understood that the company dealing in lignite coal, and who are also miners of the same at a number of points west of the Missouri river, intend put ting in a branch yard at this place, and •will have teams to deliver the product of the mines here. Also, it is intended to make this a shipping point for other sta tions on the Jamestown and Northern and the Valley road, as well as points east and west. This lignite coal now be ing mined, is getting to be abetter quali ty each year. It is the cheapest fuel to be had, and a little care in it* use will demonstrate it. The "Soo" road is ex perimenting with it, for use in their en- **Two of the teams which will be put to work drawing lignite coal for use in the asylum boilers at this place are already ^It issaid that contracts to deliver this fuel at S3 per ton have been proposed, and severaTmade. Carrington News Notes. E. J. Smith reports that, in .digging a well at Eldridge, he drilled through a vein of lignite five feet thick, at ad ptli of eighty-five feet. Mr. A. S. Weld, an Eldridge farmer, shows samples of red clover from last year's seeding that measure four feet hign, and some fine alfalfa. A white frost early on Friday morning rather planned some of our grangers. No damage very to the grain was done in this vicinitv, sofcar as ascertained, and not much even to the gardens. Some of the gardens, indeed, escape^ alto gether. A large area of sunken forest has just been discovered in Devils lake, about twenty-five miles southeast of the city. The trees are large and mostly stand up rioht The water is just deep enough so that some of the topmost limbs reach the the surface^ Departure of Mr. VanEvery. Tomorrow Rev. J. M. VanEvery will preach his farewell sermon at the M. E. church. During his labors here he has won the highest esteem not only of his congregation but that of the public as well. He is an active, faithful minister, alive to the duties of his work. Many warm person friends will deeply regret his departure for California, his new field. During the brief time of his stay in Jamestown thirty-four new members have been received into the church. The Sunday school has averaged 104 in at tendance since he came also, the highest in the history of the church. At present his wife and son are in Missouri. They' 'expect to join him in California about October 1st, going by way of the Union Pacific. He leaves Monday for the west, bLth®1^°Jthne"! Pacific route, going, to thence to San Francisco. He will be at Monterey the seat of the California con ference, September 5th. YPSILANTI INKLINGS. H. 8. Tibbits of Racine is here looking after his four hundred acres of grain. Perhaps we will have a war song concert before he leaves. A few binders are at work in the earliest grain, but as nearly all use headers harvesting has hardly commenced. What shall be said of the frost? Can it serve any good purpose to conceal the facts, or perhaps we have been deceiving ourselves or unable to form even an ap proximate estimate of the damage to the crops. We now know that the ripest pieces have suffered at least 10 per cent and up to 50 per cent, according to ripe ness. 'And that the late pieces are entire ly destroyed. The last few days of hot weather have developed indications of decompositon and fermentation in the berry which was supposed to be uninjur ed and the ripening process seems to be entirely arrested. The extent of the dam age can not yet be told. This is especial ly true of the oats—very few pieces were ripe enough to be beyond injury. The great bulk of them were just in condition to be most easily injured. They do not appear to be injnred, they are as green as ever, but like the wheat they do not ripen and this is suspicious. At all events there is abundant cause for anxiety as but a couple of weeks more can reason ably be expected before killing frosts. Mr. Bassler and wife are visiting at W. H. Doughty's. "Tell the Truth." O'Brien Farm, Western Barnes Coun ty, Aug. 24th, 1888. EDITOR ALERT: I notice in the issue of Thursday, Aug. 23rd, of The Alert, some statements regarding the crops whiish need a little revising. Mr. B. S. Russell is reported «s sayihg "A little garden truck was all that was touched," and an editorial item states "Millet, bar ley and rye are. not damaged." In coming to Jamestown on Monday, I notieed all along the road millet turned white with frost, and owners busy cut ting the crop not half headed, and I will also state without fear of contradiction, that in the western portion of Barnes county, and from there on to Jamestown, there will not be one-half of an average crop of N o. 1 hard wheat harvested this year. In my opinion (and I have seen somewhat of the effects of rust on wheat in the east) the rust damaged all the ear ly grain, weakening the straw materially, so that unless cut while not lully ripe much loss will be the result from crip pling. While I would not disparage Da kota and her "wondeiful climate and pro ductions" I do believe the saying, "Tell the Truth" is «r ought to be as binding in Dakota as in Maine. V. L. Cn.ua. To the Farmers of Stutsman Co. The North Dakota annual fair is to be held at Grand Forks, Sept. 18-22nd. The board has succeeded in procuring very low rates for the people of Dakota, and now'thope they will be able to be present, the round trip onlj* costing about $3.60 or one cent a mile from Jamestown. A special premium has been offered for county exhibits. In order to have Stuts man county represented, I have appoint ed Mr. W. H. Doughty of Ypsilanti, to take charge of our exhibit. He or my self will furnish you catalogues of infor mation Any one having any articles of grain or vegetables, will please hand their specimens to him. A special car mil go from here, taking free all exhibits for the fair. Farmers this is your own fair. Bring on your best production, and let us show the Red River valley and the world what we can raise, fours &c., I. C. WADE, president. Northern Pacific Officials. A party of Northern Pacific officials came in this afternoon from St. Paul, in Superintendent McCabe's private car The gentlemen were: Superintendent of Transportation Delamere, W. F. Howells, assistant general manager, and Lease Agent F. W. Wilson, the latter formerly stationed in Jamestown. The party goes to Helena on a business trip, and may continne on to the coast. Superintend ent Delamere is getting every available car and engine in readiness to haul out Dakota's big crop tributary to the road. Iowa Visitors. J. M. Eldridge and Banker Jas. Thomp son, of Davenport, la., came in today to see how crops looked on the Davenport farm. They are making their yearly visit to Dakota. Mr. Eldridge furnished the name for Stutsman county's thriving town west of this place. Both gentlemen are well known Iowa capitalists and in vestors in Dakota. They will see a grand difference in the appearance of the coun try from the trip of last year. Annual Convention. The seventh annual meeting of the W U, of Dakota, occurs in Fargo, Sep tember 7.8 and 10. Among the attrac tions will be an address from Miss Frances Willard, Saturday evening, and one from Mrs. Lillie Devereux Blake of New York, on Thursday evening, Sept. 6th. A large amount of committee work and discus sion is out-lined in the program. No lady from Jamestown is advertised to take part. 3 HARVEST EXCURSIONS. 3 August 21st, September 11th and 25th, October 9th and 23d.

WHITAKKB, Minneapolis^ Minn. G. T. & P. A. IN THE DENTIST'S CHAIR. On* of ChUdren'a Teeth—Several Good Sngfeatfona—Ftlx Teeth. The other day I sat down In my dent ist chair comfortably, knowing that what was about to be done would not be at all painful or annoying, and while he was getting ready his various instru ments asked, inquiringly: "Bostonians have very good teeth, as a rule, haven't they?" The dentist smiled. "Teeth, as a rule, are rather good than bad the world over, in these days." he said. "People are gradually waking up to the fact that it is never too soon to attend to children's teeth, and, as a result, they come into our hands at so early an age that we are able to correct, any irregularities in growth, and to look after them so care fully at regular intervals that a fine set is assured. A baby should have a tooth brush as soon as he has a tooth, and it should be used, too, carefully and judi ciously, always once, and generally twice, a day. First teeth very often decay, and need filling just as much as the second, and one cannot be too particular about these things." "Does the second set usually come as it ought to come, without any assistance from a dentist?" said I, anxiously, think ing of my infant nephew, who was just then cutting the eye teeth of his first set, and decidedly taking time by the fore lock. He smiled again. "Well, I should say it is always safer aftd wiser to consult the brotherhood," observed he. "Then there is no risk. Although those teeth which grow crookedly can be made to take their proper place after a time, with a little attention they will come properly upon their first appearance, and a good deal of needless trouble and perhaps suf fering would be saved. Modern dentistry, as you well know, works miracles. The only thing it hasn't succeeded in doing is to induce a third set of teeth to grow, and I fear that is something which science will never achieve. But there is no rea son why every one should not have at least a fair set of teeth, which, with proper care, will tide them safely over a natural existence." "What do you mean by proper care? Brushing frequently and coming often to you?" "They ought to be brushed after every meal, or certainly at night and morning. But one cannot bo too careful as to the sort of tooth powder .one uses. I very often see powdered charcoal advocated by newspaper writers and quacks. Now, nothing is more injurious to the teeth than powdered charcoal. It is in reality carbon, the hardest substance known, of the same nature precisely as the diamond. Its constant use cannot help wearing off the enamel and otherwise seriously affect ing the teeth, and, except in rare cases, and seldom, it should never be put upon a brush or into the mouth. Of coarse, each dentist has his own particular powder which ho advocates and advises in prefer ence to all others, but this is a question upon which his opinion should most as suredly be asked. If he is consulted often, and allowed to examine the teeth at re gular stated intervals, the cure of them will bo far less painful, and they will naturally be kept in much better order. "People are apt to be negligent, perhaps becauso they dread the. discomfort of the dentist's chair. If they only knew, how ever, how very much bettor one's own teeth are than any artificial set, they would never hesitate about preferring any amount of filling to pulling out. A good dentist never advises the latter alternative unless it is absolutely unavoidable. False teeth,. I regret to say, are rather fashion able in a certain class of humanity—the lower class, whose principal faculty is the imitative. Mrs. Jones, who really needs It, has all her upper teeth drawn* and is provided with anew set, white, even, and of the finest porcelain. Thereupon Mrs." Brown, whose motars and bicuspids are sound as a trivet, seized with pangs of envy, goes and does likewise, and regrets her folly ever after. Rut the deed is done, and teeth, once out, can nevec be put back. That is an axiom everybody ought to re member."—Boston Hi*ndd. A Bridge for the Koae. Dr. II. D. Bun-ell, surgeon of the City and Carney hospitals, it is who has made the discovery in tl«e way of furnishing a bridge for the nose. At the time spoken of above an otherwise fine looking woman, from one of the thriving towns of the state, with a not at all pleasant apology for a uose, applied to l)r. Burrell tor relief. Iler deformity was such that she Was compelled to live a most secluded life, rarely going out, save at night for needed exercise. It occurred to Dr. Bur rell that an improvement might be made on previous operations, and that by add ing a properly shaped piece of bone from a living animal, a natural shaped nose could be made. An appointment was given the woman at Carney hospital, and an operation was performed by cutting out the side of tfle mutilated member and turning it completely over. A young chicken was then killed, and a piece of the breast bone of proper shape united to the root of the nose on the skull by silver wires. Then the flesh of the old uose was properly stretched over the bone and secured by ligatures. Tampkins of cot ton were put in to give the nostrils the proper shape. The new bone became properly united with its attachment, the wound healed, and the operation, thus far, is a perfect success. The patient has now a fine Roman nose, and the only scar is a nearly imperceptible line at one side of the newly made organ.—Boston Herald. Luck Lie* In a Sauce. One of the most prominent financiers in the southern states found himself penni less and an invalid at the close of our civil war. His business had been solely the manipulation of money and neither he nor his neighbors had now any money to manipulate. Bis wife and three children looked to him for support. What should ho do to provide them with bread? He would gladly have taken a position as a clerk, but nobody wanted his services. He still owned a few cores of sterile land, on which onco £TCw a wild plant with a seed pod of pungent flavor from which the negroes expressed tho juice to be used as s. sauce on their master's table. Col. M—, in his perplexity, remem bered this sauce. He visited the old patch and found but one bush yet standing. From the pods he distilled juico enough to fill a small bottle with sauce end this he caixied as a sample to the chief caterers end grocers in New Orleans, and took orders for the next season. The seeds were planted. Then followed two or three years of anxiety and hard work and then came success. The sauce has its place now on tables in every part of the country.— Youth's Companion.

One Hundred and Twenty Houiea Swept Away and Every Head of Live Stock in the Path of the Irrealetabte Waters Drowned—Sixteen Pereona Known to .Have Perished in the FiAnI, NEW ORLEANS, Aug. 27.—The relief ex pedition which has just returned from Lower Terrebonne parish found over 1,200 people there in a destitute and starving condition. The storm of last Sunday swept the waters of the gulf for a distance of twenty miles into the inte rior, the water rising from four to ten feet over the land. One hundred and twenty houses were swept away, not a plank being left behind. The people living in them sought refuge in the higher lands above. The water has con tinued over all the Caillou Black, Dulac and Terrebonne districts ever since, the continuous winds preventing it going down. The victims lost everything in the storm—their clothing, provisions, houses—and all have been supported for the past five days by the charity of the storekeepers and the police jury. The relief expedition distributed food and clothing among them. The loss of life has been small. As far as known only ten persons have been drowned in the parish, but in all the in undated district, covering probably 400 square miles, not ahead of stock of any kind has been left alive. The I04S to the state by Sunday's storm is now estimated at between $3,600,000 and $4,000,000. Sixteen lives were lost, either by drown ing, falling walls or other accidents due to the storm. BV CYCLONE AND FLOODS. THE WHOLE EASTERN SECTION SWEPT BY'TERRIFIC STORMS. Damage to Property Well Up Into the Millions, While the Loss of Life Is Simply Appalling —The Ohio River Rising at the Rate of Two Feet Per Hour—Many Bridges and Houses Swept Away. BALTIMOKE, Md., Aug. 23.—A water spout passed over the eastern shore of Maryland, doing great damage. It is re ported that several lives were lost. The storm was very severe at Annapolis. Houses were blown down and crafts in the bay capsized. The storm was accompanied by a cy clone which is known to have caused much damage in the southern part of the state, although reports of the storm are coming in very s'owly owing to the prostration of the w.res. The village of Still Pond, in Kent county, seems to have suffered more severely than any other place. The cyclone blew down many houses, damaged crops and as far as known ten people are reported to have been killed, The news comes mainly from the steamers which arrived from points along the bay. There are no tele graph wires to the place. LOWLANDS ARE COVERED. The Ohio Rising at the Rate of Two Feet Per Honr.' BELLAIK, Ohio, Aug. 28.— Many bridges and houses along McMahon creek have been swept away by the storm. The St. Clairville railroad, partially rebuilt after the last freshet, is again flooded. The Ohio river is rising about two feet an hour. The lowlands are covered and the residents have taken shelter with neigh bors. All railroad communication is cnt off. THE RAGING DELAWARE. A Rise of lix Feet in Few Hoars—Mills Compelled to Shot Down. EASTON, Pa., Aug 22.—Heavy rains have been falling throughout this section and reports received show great damage to country roads and to foundations of new buildings. The Lehigh river is over the tow path. Canal navigation is closed and mills have shut down. The Delaware riTer has risen six feet and is backing water in the Bushkill, prevent ing mills on that stream from running. All rivers are rising rapidly. BUILDINGS SWEPT AWAY. Whole Orchards and Crops Destroyed by the Cyelone. SALEM, N. J.. Aug. Zo.—A cyclone passed over this section at 4:20 p. m. The Salem brick works were nearly demol ished by a funnel-shaped whirlwind. Nealy all the buildings were swept away. The cloud then took a northeasterly course, blowing down barns, whole or chards and growing crops. The damage in this county will amount to many thousand dollars. RIVERS RISING RAPIDLY. The Water Within a Few Inches of Last Month's Flood—Hundreds of Houses Flooded. MCKEESPORT, Pa., Aug. 23.—The Mo nongahela and .Youhiogheny rivers are rising fifteen inches an hour. At noon the water was within a few inches of the high water mark of last month's flood. Hundreds of houses are flooded, compel ing the families to vacate, and a number of buildings have been swept away. It Struck Boston. BOSTON, Aug. 22.—The storm this way struck Boston with great fury about 3 p. m. Two and a half inches of water had fallen at midnight. In the Journal press room the water is within two inches of the press blankets and a further rise will prevent the issue of the morning paper. Logs Swept Away. INDIANA, Pa., Aug. 23.—The general damage from the storm throughout this county will exceed *100,000. Guenther's log Booms at Homer City broke and $15,000 worth of logs were lost. Crops are generally injured and nearly all of the county bridges swept away. Loo CABINS have be come a thing of the past.
