Hoferenco wtis umdo the other day in these columns to a pamphlet just issued by certain urogressivo Stutsman county citizens, for eastern circulation, showing what local farmers say about their suc cess in this county. Tho Alert has been publishing from day to day one or more of these letters, and now gives tho first ten of the sories below: I came from Todd oounty, Miuu., in 1878, with ti team of horses, and a wagon, and harness and $2.50 in cash, and owed $300 in Minnesota. I took up 320 acres of government land and have farmed it ever since. I am not married my build ings are worth $2,000 I now have 5 head of horses and 5 head of cattlo, and all necessary farm machinery to farm the 2U0 acres which I have under cultivation. I am now worth 87,500 without any debts my highest yield of wheat was 31 J? bushels per acre and my lowest bushels per acre. I have made more money here than I could have done east, and I like the climate and water. All farmers who kept out of debt and lot whiskey alone have done better here than thev could have douo east, and with much less work. J. E. HERBERT. Jamestown, Ts. D., Dec. 24th, IbiX). I came to Jamestown from northern Michigan ISM, and not having any means to begin farming. 1 did not try it. but went to .New Mexico in 183-', and had the asthma bu b:ui '.hat I had to leave. I came back to Jamestown in tho spring of 1S87 with a wile. 7 chi dren and $105. I then took up a homestead and also rented a tarm. In the poorost years for this section my croD has averaged me 15 bushels of wheat to the aero and this year I had 2,200 bushels of wheat on 100 iicres. I now have 32 head of cattle, 8 horses and 250 sheep. This year I have built a good house, barn, granary and sheep sheds, and have also bought another piece of 1G0 acres near my home stead. 1 nave not had any other means, and only owe 6000. My asthma has left me and I am well satisued with the re sult of my work. JOHN- ,II\-E VH. Jamestown, N. IX. Dec. 2tS, 1890. I came here from Davenport. IOWP. nine years ago and have lived hero ever since on 210 acres of land I got from the government. I have cultivated 100 acres, and for six years have run a dairy* with an average of thirtv-fivo cows each year, and have sold tne m'lk in JaiSiestown, and used the 100 acres to raise feed for my cattle. I have about sixty-live head of cattle. My neighbors raise as good crops as were raised in Iowa. The soil is rich and deep. I have a well which sup plies all mv stock with all the water they need, and ail the water in this valley is good. P. GAFFNET. SR. Jamestown, N. D. I came from Lancashire, England, in 1883, and settled in Stutsman county, N. D.,and for the first year I worked at my trade as a gardener, and in 1884 I started a truck garden for myself in a small way. as I did not have much means. I have not bad a failure of a single crop, and have found a ready market for all I raise, along the line of the Northern Pa cific railroad as far as Paget Sound. The soil and climate is especially good for all root crops, and especially so as to pota toes, cauliflower, celery, cabbage, etc. I shall have twenty acres to celery alone in 1891. WILLIAM BLACKHUBHT. Jamestown, N. D. I am a close Englishman, but was born and raised in New York state and came to Eldridge in 1881 with 84.00 and a few dry goods boxes full of this worlds goods. I have a wife and 5 of a family. I have been successful in farming here. This is due to the strength God has given me and my desire to keep out of debt. Pay as you go is what I believe in. And my success in sheep raising is easy told—it is taking good care of them. have realized 8550 from 100 head of sheep, that I bought 2 years ago in wool and mutton, and now have 300 fine sheep on hand which are worth 81,000. I now have 160 acres of land which I took from the United States, with 100 acres under cultivation with good fair buildings.and am worth about $5,000. L. W. RHODES. My P. O. is Eldridge, N. D. I have 320 acres of land which I bought soon after I came from Michigan in the spring of 1882. It was wild land and I brought it nnder cultivation. This year my farm averaged 10 busnels to the acre. I began with an investment of $500 in six horses and have sold 8800 worth, and now have 15 head and will have 5 colts in the spring. I never had a failure of crops. The country is better adapted to stock of all kinds than any country I have known the stock will winter better here on the wild hay and straw than they used to do in Michigan on hay and gram. The climate is excellent both in winter and summer. COLIN C. THOMAS. Jamestown, N. D. I came from Montgomery county, In diana, in the year 1883 with my wife and three children, and came because I thought it a good move to get mtu a re gion of country free from malaria. I took up 320 acres of government land and have lived on it and cultivated it since then, and have as good success farming here as I ever had in Indiana. I have had good success in raising wheat but diversified farming pays the best. A farmer should have gram and stock also and the men who have both are the men that keep out of debt and make money. Horses, cattle and sheep do exceedingly well on the nutritious grasses that grow wild and winter well and cheaply on prairie hay. In fact this prairie hay is as nutritious as eastern hay and grain combined. R. C. GOTT. Jamestown, N. D. In the year 1878 I come to Jamestown from Wisconsin with a yoke of oxen, a wagon and a plow, and took up some land 5 miles north of Jamestown, and broke 25 acres, and moved on the land with my family the following spring. I then bought good span of mares and seeded the 20 acres broken the year be fore. Thut year I htirvoste^ only 45 bushels of whnat and 137 bushels of oats, and that was tho poorest crop I have hud, aud 1 have raised from that to 27 buuhels of wheat to the acre. I never depended wholly on wheat, but raised cattlo aud horses, for this country is adapted for that purpose und 1 have umdo more money on an average with slock than with wheat. Today 1 am tho owner of 480 acres of land with a com fortable brick house with 8 rooms, and 3 closets and a pantry I have 18 head of horses and 52 head of cattle, and all bought and paid for here. Will further say that the majority of pooplo who came to North Dakota with tho intention of making a permanent home, are well off and content, but those that just wanted to get rich in a few years aud then go back, mostly got left. 1 was born in bwitzerland came in the year 1847 to America with my parents lived in Wisconsin and Minnesota, and made a journey to California, Oregon and Washington before I came to North Dakota, but could not lind what I want ed. There are good times and bad times, but this is the best country I have ever seen for farming or stock raising. GEOUGE Joos. Jamestown, N. D. I came to Jamestown in 1870, but did not begin farming until 1885. I started with $1,000 and now have (50 head of cat tle, 15 horses. I have raised an average of 1,000 bushels of wheat and 1,000 bushels of oats, and 500 bushels of corn each year. I also have 10 acres of ex cellent timber and each year cut from 120 to 150 tons of hay that is worth from 84 to §6 a ton in town. My property is worth over $8,000. HENRY VESSEY, Eldridge. N. D. JAMESTOWN, N. D., Dec. 22,1890. I came from Ontario county, New \ork, hve years ago. I have 320 acres ot land which I took from the United States. It dul not cost uie anything I had to live on it aud improve it, which I would have had to have done anyhow. 1 have made more money here farming than I dul when I farmed in New York, and 1 do not have to work as hard. This is tho best stock country I ever saw. ihere is plenty ot wild hay that can be put in stacks at a cost ol a ton, aud stock oaly need to be fed about four months a year. 1 started in sheep two years ago with 300 head costing i?750, and have raised bO per cent lambs and sold el,200 worth of wool, and being burned out this fall, sold the remainder of my sheep for over g2,000. They only cost me 34 cents per year to keep them and they shear more here than «hev do east or west by 1 to 3 pounds. They are also freer from disease than usual. Western horses will livo out doors all winter without any feed or shelter. I had 4 horses and $444 when I came here, and now have $900 in bank stock worth fc950 machinery worth ©700, and land worth 81.500. There is plenty of govern ment land free near me. JEROME SABIN.

He Regards His Chiefs Prospects for the Presidential Nomination as More Potent Than Ever. The Senate but Stepping Stone to the Highest Office in the tiift ot the Nftlion. BUFFALO, N. \.,'Jun. 27.—Speaker William F. Shochan has been spending the past two (lays with his constituency in Buffalo. A reporter had an interest ing talk with Mr. Sheelian during which various pomta, personal and po litical, wore touched upon. Mr. Shee han talked freely and as discretely as political delegations at Albany usually talk. One point he was not a whit re served upon, and that was that Gover nor Hill had made a studious and masterly stroke accepHtg the senator ship. Far from believing that Gover nor Hill had blundered in bending to the will of his party,Mr.Sheelian believed that he had intrenched himself still deeper in the affection of the Democ racy and had only strengthened his po sition as its leader. In a word, Mr. Sheelian accepted Tlie ".stepping Stone" rather than the "shelf" theory of the senator.-hip. Saul he in this regard: "To my mind Governor Hill' has strengthened immeasurably his chances of elertion to the presidency in 1S93 by accepting the post of senator. He has laid Ins party under still further obliga tions to hiui as their leader and coun sellor. Tho Democratic party might have btvn rent asunder, it might even have suftered defeat, so small was its majority at Albany, had not Governor Hill stepped and announced himself as a candidate tor senator. Had disaster or nnsluip overtaken the party at this juncture, it woulu naturally have been charged to the governor, who, every body must admit, was the first and really the only choice of his party for senator. Never was there a time when the office more sought the man than in this case. "Do I think he has foregone his presi dential aspirations by this choice? Well, as to that 1 can say* but I do say that his Presidential Clianres Arc More l'otelit And insistent than ever. The idea that a man should at all weaken himself by entering the senate and standing among such master diplomats as Carlisle, Gor man, Vest and others is utter folly. And, without disrespect to the force of the senators, both Democratic and Re publican, I treely assert that Governor Hill will be the peer of all of them. He will stand in the front rank and be as much of a power there as he always has been in whatever position he has been oalled to. "Governor Hill,"said Mr. Sheehan, has built up a strong party organiza tion through and by means of his general ship. He has a larger anny of workers ana friends behind him than had any leader since Tilden, and they will never desert him." "What do you think of The New York Sun's dictum that Governor Hill should resign by March 4, when his term of senator begins?" was asked of Mr. Shee han. "I do not see the force of Editor TXana'H. onininn that Governor Hill snotua resign, DUI it is amy a ^uesraon of personal opinion. I do not think that Governor Hill should resign before De cember, when congress convenes. He is as much beholden to fill out his guber natorial term, or at any rate as much of his term as possible, as to assume his office of senator. I do not consider it at all obligatory on him to resign his present office until the duties of his new office compel him to." "Do yon think the Hill-Cleveland Factionalism is going to split the party in 1893?" "No, why should it? Both Hill and Cleveland are Democrats, and whoever is made the party's presidential nominee will be supported by both of them. It is my opinion that the Democratic party will pick out the man who can carry New York state. The candidate presented by the Empire state will be the one selected, in my opinion. It may be Hill, or it may be Cleveland." It was suggested by the reporter that Cleveland might be selected even before New York's turn to vote came around, but Mr. Sheehan scouted the possibility of such a thing, still maintaining his point that New York's choice would be the nation's choice.

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio, Jan. 37.—There is a curious state of affairs in the Presby terian church at New Bedford because the congregation overlooked the church law that a man elected to the office of deacon must be the husband of one wife and having his children in subjection.

The increased strain put ou a money making man at the present time,(especial ly if he be engaged in speculation, is some thing tremendous.Time was,that the very rich people were either thoee who had in herited a goodly fortune, or those wh« had accumulated wealth bjr long yean of steady devotion to business. Then, too, a millionaire was a wonder now, anything short of five to twenty million puts a man out of the category of ''the rich." Under the present conditions, every faculty must b* constantly under whip and spur, and dangerous nervines are often restored to. No wonder there are so many cases of death from "heart failure" among the millionaires. The way to avoid this, is to cease so much making haste to be rich, to know when one is comfortably well off, and to always seieet the luxurious trains of "The Bur lington" when about to make a journey either for business or pleasure.
