ODD PILLOWS ADJOURN.
The Business of the Last Territorial Session of Dakota I. O. O. F. Concluded. Deadwood Chosen tor the Place of the Next Annual Meeting Yesterday's Parade. Grand Master Nugent Names the Appointive Officers—Grand Offi3ers Installed. Odd Fellows. The Odd Fellows will adjourn today. The Encampment held another meeting last night and wound up its business and the grand lodge is expected to follow suit this afternoon. Rev. G. R. Freeman of Elk Point, who was elected grand patriarch of the encampment resigned and A. S. Dam of Frederick, was elected. The team work by the Fargo degree team oc cupied nearly the whole evening. At "Wednesday afternoon's meeting the grand lodge adopted a resolution instruc ting: their representatives to the sover eign grand lodge, which meets at Colum bus in September, to use all their en deavors to secure a law making men en gaged in the saloon business ineligible to membership. This morning the grand lodge adopted a resolution of thanks to the Fargo de gree team. Most of the.members of the team returned on the early morning train. Its work was an unqualified success and was much appreciated* by the delegates. Some of the members were so much car ried away with its work that they want ed to offer an annual prize for proficien cy in team work but the lodge voted against the proposition. The honor was granted the team of being designated degree staff for the ensuing year. This was done under an old law of 1886. The Fargo team was invited to exemplification work in Dead wood at the next annual meeting. A good deal of this morning's session was devoted to legislation. Deadwood was chosen as the place for the next an nual meeting. Yankton. Redfield, Col umbia and Aberdeen were candidates but Deadwood received a large majority. The provberial liberality of Deadwood came to the front again and the active efforts of Mr. A. G. Smith of that city, aided in getting the vote necessary. He guaranteed that while the trip would take considerably longer to make, it would not cost the order more than §300 •additional to what any meeting would in •jflisy central 'Dakota town. Mr, Smith is rustler and Deadwood had in him a worthy representative. The present an nual meeting has been the most expen sive of any yet held. It is also the most important and largely attended, there be ing eight p?st grand masters present, and all but five or six lodges represented. At this afternoon's session the new officers were installed anil the committee on resolutions reported. The work of the session was completed about three o'clock, and the grand lodge adjourned to meet next year at Deadwood. A number of delegates took the afternoon train for home, but the great majority visited the asylum this afternoon, and will leave on the early morning trains. Grand Master Nugent this afternoon made the following appointments. These, with the officers elected yesterday, con stitute the grand officers of the organiza tion. They areas follows: Grand Chaplain Rev. Geo. W. Free man, Elk Point. Grand Marshall -G. 8. Gninter. Lenox Grand Conductor F. S. Langdon,Cas selton. Grand Guardian—C. J. Bach, Hurley. Grand Herald—A. B. Herrick. Lisbon. There was no new laws passed, but a few minor changes were made in the existing code. •Just before adjournment resolutions of thanks to the railroads, the local lo lge. the grand officers. The Daily Alert, the citizens of Jamestown, and to the ladies of the Woman's Relief Corps for the banquet supper, were adopted. Odd Fellow's Parade. The Odd Fellows bring their regalia —those many colored gold and silver laced insignia of rank and position with them, when they come to encamp ment. Wednesday afternoon about 175 fine looking delegates slipped these col lars over their heads and gave an Odd Fallows parade. They marched through the principal streets to the music of the Jamestown Cornet band. A meek and mild mannered black and tan billy goat who is said to be an im portant member of the Fargo degree team, was accorded the place of honor in the procession. He marched in the center of the band, the members acting as his escort, as it were. Mr. Billy Goat attracted his fall share of admiring attention from every one along the route, and bore himself with all the dignity and decorum his position demanded. He kept step with the mnsic and only an occasional emotional move ment of his abreviated tail, showed the latent happiness of his disposition. He wore his regalia also, a leather strand of bells around his manly form to which the neophyte is said to cling when the great hurdle race in an initiation, is on. On his curving horns Billy had ribbons of many hnes tied in lovers* knots and he occasionally tossed his head with par donable vanity at the thought of his brilliant decorations. Not until the end of the long march did he show any signs of excitement or fatigue, and then only by letting his tongue out about a foot. Notes. Thero were nearly 200 Odd Fellows in the parade yesterday. Fred Clark says the unusual amount of lodge work the Billy-goat has been called upon to perform lately accounts for his thinness. N. S. Nelson the haudsome general merchant of Larimore is IU attendance at the Odd Fellows meeting. He reports a splendid outlook in his county for a prosperous trade year. District Attorney J. ,G Campbell of Dickinson is attending the convention. He is one of the popular attorneys of Stark county. During the late war he was Captain of the Illinois company of which H. E. Ward of this city was a member. Kind words for Jamestown and fre quent testimonials to the generous hospitality of its citizens are heard on every hand iiniong the Odd Fellows. They are unanimously of the opinion that it is the most beautifully located and easily accessible city in North Da kota and best wishes for our rapid growth and prosperity are frequently expressed. R. H. Simpson, editor of the Hope Pioneer is among the visiting Odd Fel lows. He is one of the old time news paper men in North Dakota and publish es two papers, one at Hope the other at Sherbrooke, Steele county. Mr. Simpson is one of the strong believers in united action on the part of the press demanding certain inalienable rights and to that end advocates the formation of a North Dakota Press association before the next campaign. NEWSPAPER CRITICISM. It is a privilege every newspaper re serves to itself to criticise, adversely if needs be, for the public's benefit, any thing in which the public is deeply in terested. It is the custom of H. II. Warner Co., proprietors of the renowned Kidney and Liver Cure, better known as "War ner's Safe Cure," to flood the country and especially the postoffices, with medi cal pamphlets. The writer has taken the liberty to examine one of these mar vellous little books, and finds food for criticism, but before indulging in it, will give our readers some quotations there from, from the highest medical authori ties, which we believe worthy of consid eraiion. Uuder the head of ''No Dis tinctive Symptoms Apparrent," we find: First—More adults are carried off in this country by chronic kidney disease than by any ot^er one malady except consumption—Thompson. Second—Deaths from such diseases are increasing at the rate of 250 per cent a decade -Edwards. Third —Bright''s disease has no symp toms of its own, and may long exist yith out the knowledge of the patient or prac titioner, as no pain will be felt in the kidneys or their vicinity -Roberts. Fourth—In the fatal cases and most cases have hitherto been fatal—the symptoms of diseased kidneys will first appear in extremely different organs of the body, as stated above. -Thomp son. Fifth- Only when the disease has reached its final and fatal stages may the usual symptoms of albumen and tube casts appear in the water, and will great pain rack the diseased organs— Thompson Sixth—Bright's disease, which usually has three stages of development, is a univ3rsal disease in England and Ameri ca—Roberts and Edwards. Thompson is authority for saying that more adults are carried off in this country by kidney disease than any other malady except consumption. Under Warner's "Safe Cure" article on consumption, we find a paragraph claiming to be a quota tion from a publication issued by Bromp ton hospital for consumptives, London England, which states that 52 per cent of the patients of that institution have un suspected kidney disorder. Dr. Herman Brehmer. an eminent German authority, also says that consumption is always due to deficient nutrition of the lungs, be cause of bad blood. Medical science can no longer dispute the fact that the kidneys are the princi pal blood puryifying organs of the hn man system, and if they are diseased and thus fail to expel the uric acid poison or the waste matter of the blood, as the blood passes through these two great organs, the "Safe Cure" claim is correct, and the reasoning of its proprietor holds good. There is no doubt but that in too many instances the medical fraternity doctor for symptoms, instead of striking at the root of the disease, and that under this form of treatment many patients die. We caunot, however, see the necessity of continually flooding the country with these advertising medical books, when' their story once well told is enough for the time being. People as a rule, now-a days, go to their newspaper for informa tion. and we believe such truths as we have instanced, could be proclaimed therein more advantageously to the pub lic and much more beneficially to the proprietors. Same Old Swear Off. Bismarck Tribune: Yesterday morning the St.Pnul traveling man who had not tasted any intoxicating beverage for fif teen years was making the atmosphere in the vicinity of the Sheridan honse bine with genuine Apache war whoopp.In short he was celebrating his fifteen-year swear off in a most emphatic manner. Officer Marsh happened along at an opportune moment and escorted the peace offender to the county jail, where at last accounts he was quietly sleeping off the effects of his spree. The Bismarck Tribune now contra dicts the report which it recently pub lished, that Postal Clerk Lonnsberry would sne the Northern Pacific for 8100,000. SELECTING N. F. LANDS. E. V. Smalley, Representing the Minnesota & Dakota Land Co,, in the City. He is Preparing to Select Another Block of 50,000 Acres for that Company. The Thieves Who Broke Into Chenery's Store Still at Large. To Buy Northern Pacific Lands. Readers of The Alert will remember an account of the purchase of 56,000 acres of land from the Northern Pacific rail road company last winter by a syndicate of St. Paul and Minneapolis capitalists. The lands were selected by the purchas ers under the direction and personal guidance of Mr. E. V. Smalley, the well known editor of the Northwest Maga zine, who drove the gentlemen through the counties of Stutsman, Foster, Griggs and Barnes, for the purpose of making personal examinations of the property they intended to buy. Mr.Smalley is again in Jamestown, commissioned to make a large additional purchase of wild lands under the contract of the syndicate,which is known as the Minnesota & Dakota Laud Co., and which contract requires them to purchase at least 50,000 acres each six months, for the period of one year. This land is to be paid for at the rate of $2 per acre, and while it looks cheap in many instances, there are town ships where the price is quite enough, owing to stone and poor quality of soil. The Northern Pacific land department, divides for the purpose of convenience, all its unsold land between Fargo and Bismarck into fourteen belts, varying in width as the lands have been more or less sold. Each division is supposed to contain about 100,000 acres. Mr, Smalley is now trying to decide which belt he will select the next 50.000 acres from. The lands bought last year were in Stuts man, Foster, Barnes and Griggs counties, and were for the most part good lands. The company is intending after getting title and otherwise perfecting its plans, to offer inducements to emigration, and settlers in the shape of practical bonuses for farming the lands. These arrange ments will be developed and annnonnced later. Of course, as soon as the lands pass out of possession of the Northern Pacific they become taxable, and assessors have already placed valuations upon the 56,000 bought by Mr. Smallev's company last January. One of the things now being looked into by that gentleman is the as sessment of such wilil lands in the differ ent counties where they have already been purchased and where future pur chases are very likely to be made. From a comparison of figures the Alert is pleased to state that the assess ment of wild lands in six neighboring counties shows the lowest rate of taxa tion to be in Stutsman county. The highest is iu Barnes county. Stutsman county, for this reason, is looked upon with great favor by capitalists and in vestors, and, of course, it is a desira ble thing for the county to see its lands pass from the non-taxable and non-im proved state, as owned by the railroad company, to other hands, where taxes are collectable and improvements more certain to follow. This will be one strong reason which will influence the choice of the 50,000 additional acres Mr. Smalley is here for the purpose of se lecting. As an instance of the differ ence in taxation in the counties, it can be stated that a section of the company's wild land in Barnes county is taxed, on an average, $70, while in Stutsman coun ty, adjoining, the tax is only some $35 on a section. Would Make a Good Chairnuiii. Hon. P. McHugh,the popular Cavalier county banker and politician, whose ro tund form and ample girth are sure indi cations of the sunny nature and mirth ful disposition which are characteristic of the gentleman, was a passenger on this morning's train, bound for Bismarck to attend a meeting of the penitentiary board. He was a member of the last legislature, and also of the one of 1885. Mr. McHugh has been elected one of Cavalier's delegates to th» constitutional convention, and is now being talked about as a suitable man to preside over the deliberations of this important as semblage. Last winter he was in the chair when the house passed through some of its most stormy sessions in com mittee of the whole, and made an excel lent and satisfactory chairman. The constitutional convention could go fur ther and fare much worse than in mak ing such a choice. Looking for Burglars. O. St. C. Chenery has returned from a trip to Bismarck and Mandan in search of the men who burglarized his store. He found the men he suspected, but they satisfied him of their innocence. A couple of suspicious characters were seen yesterday between Medina and Crystal Springs, and it is possible that these men may have been implicated in the robbery. Mr. Chenery says the officials at Bismarck and Mandan were very ac commodating and rendered him every assistance in their power. It is thought that a clue has been found which may result in the apprehen sion of one of the thieves. The morning of the robbery the conductor on No. 0 collected fare from a suspicious looking character who paid him in old coins which prob ably belonged to Mr. Chenery's stolen collection. The conductor, on his return to Jamestown, reported the fact to Chief Ford, and Officer Lathrop left for Fargo to follow up the clue. No word had been received from him this morning, but as he is expected home on the first train, a report of his success will soon be had. Let's all "Be Good." In one of the new operas now being sung in New York, is heard a topical song rendered by a favorite actress, the moral of which should have weight with all of us. The ballad is entitled "Be Good," and while the moral is directed particu larly to young ladies, it is believed there are some young men also, to whom it would not apply amiss. For those very young fellows who can so rhyme them selves into ladies' favors can also reason themselves out again: and furthermore, we have it on excellent authority that "a speaker is but a prater and a rhyme is but a ballad." The girls, particularly, should there fore note the friendly advice of the ditty, aud let no ambiguous interpretation stray into the lines even if the saucy sou brette should so lead the way ty her pretty and playful performance. The text of the little song is as follows, and the actress has made it a very popu lar abjuration among all the high spir ited pt-oyle who have heard it: When 1 tirst begun to flutter, at the age of bread ami butter, (That's the iige when maids are in a Muttering mood). My maternal parent hinted that tn make life rosy-tinted, I should always be what she described as "good.'' "When temptations gather round you, let no false ideas confound you. Shut your eyes anil ears," said she, "as maid ens should, And however things surprise you, don't forget .what I advise you. Which is simply this, my child, be good, be good." "Oil, be good, sweet maiden, ever, Never mind 'would, eoulcl or should Let whoever will be clever. As for you—be good, he good!" Since those days the hoys have woed me they have bothered me and pursued me, And I've always tried to do the best I could And how often, oh, how often, when I've seen their glances soften. I have whispered to them warningly, "he good!" When your lover urges, presses, tries to dally with your tresses, Vows he'd twine them round his heart strings if he could. Von will surely be astonished how lie's silenced when admonished i!y the whisper of those mystic words, "be good." •'Oil, lie good, sweet maiden," ere. Semi-Local Clippings. LaJloure County Chronicle. The Northern Pacific company has set tled with W. W. Wilcox for horses lost in the late collision west of Jamestown, the amount paid being about §4,2G(). Last season's potatoes are cheap now. We heard the other day of a farmer, who has a big herd of hogs, purchasing 1,000 bushels, at five cents per bushel, for feed. Ex-Conductor Bailey, whom all know, was down the road Friday disposing of some interests. His continued poor health necessitates a change of climate, and he is going away. Several gentlemen interested in the city's welfare and appearance are talking over the possibility of having a fountain in the park and of bringing the water from the spring on the hill, which they think could be done at a small expenditure. It would be a grand thing. Ernest Eurenius, who left the Swede settlement west of Edgeley a year and a half ago, has returned and will again take up his residence in the old locality. Mr. E. has been near Waterville, Wash ington, but prefers Dakota to live in. Hay is scarcer there, land has to be fenced, and oats were worth three cents per pound. BEAVER BITS. Miss Maggie Carson, who has for the last two or three weeks been visiting her sister, has returned to her home in the country. A large number of friends gathered to gether last Friday night in Mr. Trimble's granary to dance, there being about twenty-five couples present. Messrs. Hunt and Baker,who are, as we all know, the best musicians in this part of the country, furnished the music. The crops are looking splendid after the wet weather, Mr. Kneedecker had nine calves stray from his farm last week, and up to the present time has not seen anything of them. A young man in the neighborhood was beard to remark the other day that he was a going a hop with the decent peo ple. What did he mean? Mr. Trimble was out looking at the crops a few days ago. Talking it Over. Grand Forks says she will not break her neck trying to get the capital. She probably means that ia the event she did try to get it, her neck would be broken. —Devite Lake Capital. Don't get to* fresh, Bro. McClnre. If Devils Lake ever wins the capital it will only be by the grace of Grand Forks.— Grand Forks Herald. Frederick T. Roberts, M. D., Professor of Clinical Medicine at University Col lege Hospital, London. England, says: "Bright'* disease has no symptoms of its own and may long exist without the knowledge of the patient or practitioner and no pain will be felt in tne kidneys or their vicinity." Ordinary common kidney diseases, many times unrecog nized as such, wall become chronic and terniinate in Bright's (organic) disease of the kidneys, unless taken in hand. War ner's Safe Cure is the only recognized specific that has ever been discovered for this disease. The late Dr. Dio Lewis said, over bis own signature: "If I found myself the victim of a serious kidney tronble.1 would use Warner's Safe Cure. THE LAYOUT OF LOCAL. Arrangements for the Non-Parti san Prohibition Convention Next Week. A County Sunday School Associa tion Organized—They Went but Returned. The Asylum Board closes the Con tract for the Artesian Well. Tuesday's Convention. A mass meeting of the Non-Partisan Prohibition association of North Dakota will be held in tlr's city next Tuesday. The convention is called by a committee appointed by the recent prohibition con vention at Grand Forks, and the object is to organize and map out a plan of pro hibition campaign this fall. A circular signed by Rev. HI M. Barker says that the prohibitionists propose to raise $200,000 for campaign purposes, and the ways and means to this end will proba bly bo among the matters which this convention will consider. The sessions of the convention will be held in the Opera riiik. The morning session will open at 9 a. m. Rev. D. M. Parker will offer the opening prayer, and Rev. E. H. Teall will deliver the address of welcome. The morning and after noon sessions will be devoted to busi ness. In the evening Mrs. H. M. Barker of Fargo, whose eloquent addresses in the past have (hade her a prime favorite, and other speakers of territorial note will deliver addresses. Music will be a feature of all the sessions, and the James town band will be present. Reduced railroad and hotel rates have been secured, and an attendance of about 100 is expected. Arrangements have been made with the Capital house for the accommodation of seventy-flve dele gates. About thirty ladies are expected. They will be entertained by the ladies of the local W. C. T. U. organization. Decoration Day Observances. Decoration day observances in James town will be under the auspices of the Wm. H. Seward G. A. R. post. Com mander Calkins gives the following out line of arrangements: Teams will leave the G.A.R. hall for the cemetery at 9 a. m. with a detail to decorate the graves of the old soldiers. In the afternoon,the members of the G. A. R., Company H, Sons of Veterans, Woman's Relief Corps and W.C.T.U. will form in procession in front of the G.A.R. hall, and, led by the Jamestown Cornet band, will march to the court house, where the exercises will be held at 2 p. m. District Attorney Fryo will deliver the oration. The usual memorial sermon the Sun day preceding Decoration day, was held Sunday at the court house at 10:30 a.m. It will bo a union service of all the churches, and Rev. N. D. Fanning will deliver the discourse. The members of the G.A.R. post, Sons of Veterans and Woman's Relief Corps will attend in a body, the two former organizations meeting at the court house, and the latter at the Methodist church for that purpose. Tlie Contract Let. There was a meeting of the Asylum trustees Saturday. The bids for the con struction of the artesian well were again considered. The legislature only appro priated S7,000 for the work, and the low est bid received was that of the Lupher Bros., $7,500. It was thought at the last meeting that the necessary $500 could be taken from another appropriation for water purposes, and final action on the contract was postponed until advice could be obtained on the point. Mr. Rea consulted with the governor and attor ney general and their advice was, not to exceed the appropriation and noii to ap ply any portion of the water works fund to the cost of the well. The Gray Bros, of Milwaukee, when this point was raised at the last meeting, offered to complete the well, guaranteeing water, for $7,000. Accordingly the board at the meeting today informed the Lupher Bros, that they must either make their bid within the appropriation or they would close with the proposition of the Gray Bros. The Lupher Bros, made their bid $7,000, and the contract was closed with them. It seems hardly necessary to state that Dr. and Mrs. Archibald were re engaged at the last meeting as suxerin tendent and matron, respectively. Their services are so well known and apprecia ted, that such was to be expected, and the formality of a re-election was hardly necessary. Their many friends, both here and elsewhere, will find this an other occasion for congratulation,as does The Alert, for the genial doctor and bis estimable wife, and for the institution as well. Chasing a Supposed Burglar. Argus: About four o'clock yesterday morning Policemen Grant and Loudon attempted to arrest a roan at the Broad way house, whom they believed was con nected with the Jamestown burglary a couple of weeks ago. He wished to know their authority. Officer Grant said they had no warrant but would arrest him on suspicion. He held down his his head for a moment or two, then said be would go with the officers. He seemed so quiet that he was neither searched nor handcuffed. The moment he was out of the honse he broke away and ran. The officers fired at him and he returned the fire. It is claimed the officer fired a dozen shots and the disappearing "pris oner" three. No one seems to have been hurt and the man bas not since been seen. Yesterday afternoon Chief Wood arrested a man whom he believes is a pal of the one who escaped early in the morn ing. The police force connect these men with the recent burglaries in Fargo as well as the one at Jamestown. Chief of Police Ford went down to Fargo Saturday after the suspicious character above referred to, but when he saw the man decided that he did not con form to the description of the man he wanted. He accordingly returned home without him Sunday, but on arriving here learned of new evidence that would probably convict the man of burglarizing Chenery's store, and acting on the advice of Mr. Chenery decided to go back after the fellow. He accordingly returned to Fargo again yesterday afternoon, but the Fargo authorities, having no tangible evidence of the fellow's crookedness, had released him, and when Mr. Ford reach ed there the bird had flown. MOUNT PLEASANT NOTES. Plenty of rain now, and the crops are all doing nicely. Jake Schurer went down to Jamestown last week. Mr. Vig drove to Jamestown last Sat urday, accompanied by Miss Lillian Curtis and Miss Lucy Merry. Sabbath school was organized last Sunday. The commencement was very encouraging about thirty being present. Mr. Sinclair, Sr. was elected superintend ent, Miss Curtis treasurer, and Mr. Ack erman secretary. Mr. Merry, of Jamestown, has had a line house bruit on his homestead, and will do considerable brenking this sum mer. Quite a number of the boys went down to Eldridge, la«t Saturday, to take part in a game of base ball. The party of May 24 given in the Buzzell school house, was more than a success,about forty couple being present. Lunch was served at 12 o'clock by the ladies, to which every one seemed to do justice. Music WRS furnisheJ by John Sinclair and D. E. Buzzell, to which the fantastic toe was tipped until the "wee sma' hours" warned them to disperse for "hame," which they did, all having been happy to meet, sorry to part and happy to meet again. They Went, but Returned. L. C. Steffenson, J. C. Morrison and Chas.Sundberg were at the Capital house Saturday on their return from a pros pecting tour through Washington terri tory. They are Dakota farmers who had been captivated by the bright and se ductive pictures which the boomers paint of coast life and the opportunities for money making there afforded, and had concluded to make a personal investiga tion with a view to locating. When they reached the coast they found an over boomed country, a rainy season and a web-footed population. They were more fortunate than many others who have given ear to the song of the W. T. real estate siren, having pur chased return tickets. They soon saw enough to convince them that Da kota is the better country, and wisely returned to settle down contentedly on their pre-emptions, homesteads and tree claims in the greatest of the great north western territories to raise hard wheat, accumulate riches and tell their neigh bors that the coast boom is a delusion and a snare. Will Bring a Colony to Settle Here. Wm. Bronson, of New York, has been in Jamestown several days, inspecting his Stutsman county lands, of which he is a large holder. Some time ago, he purchased 16,000 acres of the estate of the late S. Whitney. He owns in Stuts man and adjoining counties, about 50,000 acres. Geo. Purchase, with whom he and another gentleman, Mr. Christian son, inspected these lands, says that it is the intention of Mr. Bronson to olfer inducements to emigrants to farm these lands, and that Mr. Christianson, who has seen the country and lands, and is able to carry back a flattering report,will go over to Norway and Sweeden and en deavor to bring back with him a colony of one hundred families to settle in Stutsman county. Mr. Christianson will sail about June 15th. Sunday School Association Formed. At a meeting in the Baptist church Saturday afternoon, a large number of the Sunday school workers of the terri tory being present, a county Sunday School association was organized. The following officers were elected: Superintendent—Rev. E. H. Teall. Assistant Superintendent—Miss U. Lawrence. Secretary—W. V. Wells. Messrs. A. Lawrence, Rev. D. M. Park er and C. P. Smith were appointed a committee to arrange for a county mass meeting in the interests of the Sunday school n^ovement to be held some time in the near future. Comiag Kntertauiments. After along dearth of theatrical enter tainments Jamestown uow seems likely to have a plethora in this respect during the next month. Manager C. A. Klaus of the Opera rink, stated this morning that he has the following companies booked for the first three weeks of June: On the 6th, C. A. Gardner's "He, She. Him or Her" comedy company on June 8th, G. A. Gardner's Comedy company in '•Our Karl" on the 11th, JanaschenK on the 15th, Royce & Lansing, whose musi cal comedy entertainment here last fall was pronounced one of the best ever seen in Jamestown and on the 21st New ton Beer's reorganized and strengthened "Lost in London" company. Dakota's Fauna. Sioux Falls Press: The department of natural history in the territorial univer sity at Vermillion, has set out to bring together a complete Collection of Dako ta's fanna—its big and little animals of all classes snd kinds. These will prob ably include the Spear fish, the App® matt ox, the Vermil lion and other speci mens.
