offered to the A. O. U. W. lodge in the

ber of members during the month of
April. The Langdon lodge gathered in
recruits at a lively rate and won the
banner with 35 new members. The
Jamestown lodge was not far behind,

the month. Ft. Seward lodge, this city,
probably has the largest membership of
any lodge in the two Dakotas.
The Rio cheese factory will reopen
May 5th. The milk of a large number
of cows has been contracted for and it is
the desire of the management to secure
enough milk to run the factory to its
fnll capacity. I. C. Wade will furnish
30 of his Holsteins. Last year the facto­
ry made good cheese and found a ready
market for its product, but was unable

ness profitable, the expenses being about
the same for running at half as for full
capacity.
An exchange has this to say of Musin,
the great violinist who will be at the
Opera rink, May 8th, with an excellent
concert company: Musin is the greatest
living violinist of the Romantic and
French school playing to-day, and gives
a meat wonderful performance. His
playing alone on the "G" string is well
worth the price of admission to any in­
telligent man or woman. He, with his
company, gives a two and one-half hour
program, and up to the present time
this season not a single person has been
known to leave the hall during the con­
cert.
The asylum trustees are in session tjys
afternoon. All the members are present.
Mr. Auld came in from Dickinson last
night and Messrs. Smith of tyheatland,

the ensuing year. Among other matter*
upon which action may be taken are the
artesian well trouble and the matter of
providing fire protection for the institu­
tion. Messrs. Lieber and Faneher, the
local members of the board, are of cotfrse
in attendance at the meeting.
I. C. Wade has catalogued his Dakota
Valley herd of Holsteins and expects to
sell a large number of animals this sea­
son. His herd is the largest and best
known in the northwest. It now consists
of over 100 pure bred animals. Mr. )Vade
does not intend to go out of thdv* stock
business nor has his faith lessened in the
wonderful advantages of this country for
stock. He says North Dakota is the best
stock country in the world and' that he
can raise his stock here for one-quarter
what it would cost in the ea*t. The
Dakota Valley herd came through the
winter in fair ihape, although several
valuable animiils were lost, during Mr.
Wade's illness/ through the stupidity and

the line last Saturday, having been at
Jamestown for a short time on business.

sown to wheat and oats. Most of the
Indians have good teams and seem more
contented than at any time for
years.

Monday morning, which was loaded with
emigrants from South Dakota, was cov­
ered with banners with inscriptions like
the following. "No more hauling water
five miles." "No more binder experts."

are steering for, hasn't had rain for eigh­
teen months.
1. C. Wade expects to import a large
number of Shropshire sheep from Eng­
land this fall and is now making arrange­
ments for the venture. There is a good
demand all over North Dakota for pure,
blooded Shropshire bucks and the band
will no doubt meet with ready sale.
Last fall Mr. Wade brought in a num­
ber of this kind of sheep from the east
and found the demand for them greater
than his supply. He readily disposed of
several thousand dollars worth.

has been done lately by the prairie fires.
Jerry Williams lost considerable hay and
C. Unger barely saved his house and
barn, besides other damage cone in
the vicinity of Newyork town. There is a
stringent law against setting out prairie
fires. These fires do not start of their
own accord and without assistance even
if it was 90 in the shade Friday, They
are started through some one's careless­
ness and seme one will be made an exam­
ple of some day to £heir sorrow if
Inhere is not less carelessness manifest­
ed.

returned this morning from Casselton,
where they presented "Esmeralda" last

by the Rupert's Fargo orchestra. The

Frank Casey says that of the 4,000
acres that will be cropped this year
on the Carrington & Casey
farm at Melville. 2,500 will be
seeded to wheat and the rest to oats, bar­
ley and flax. Of the latter crop there
will probably be 800 acres. Last year
there were 840 acres of tiax on this farm.
Generally flax is a a more profitable
crop than wheat but last year it did not
do as well as usual. Mr. Casey says
seeding has been progressing rapidly.
About 2,000 acres of wheat having al­
ready been seeded. Flax is always sown
about the middle of May and most of
the other seed will be in the ground
when the time comes for flax. The out­
look around Melville is fully as promis­
ing as in this vicinity. Mr. Casey says
they have had fully as much if not more
rain there than we have had here.
Sanborn Enterprise: Attorneys Mc­
Millan of Jamestown, and Pierson of
Sanborn, had a narrow escape from a
runaway last Tuesday. Mac. was about
to drive across the railroad track when
the horse shied at a freight car. Io en­
deavoring to control the animal one of
the lines broke and they started around
in a circle. Mr. Pierson was thrown baok
over the seat onto his head in the rear of
the buckboard, and being a cripple, was
Slaced
in a helpless position. Mr. Mc
lillan made a dive over the dashboard
and succeeded in catching the check rein
and prevented the horse from getting
away with them.
A
badly damaged derby
for Mr. Pierson and a dished wheel on
Mr. McMillan's vehicle was the extent of
the damages. It was a narrow escape for

chance of having his neck broken.

variety. In reply to the inquiry ot one
of his little guests as to whether he
could play with his dog, the coming
ticket puncher threw up both handB and

The attorney general interprets the
wool market law to mean that the city
establishing a market must not only fur­
nish free storage for the time specified,
but a man to take charge of the house,
do the making, etc., and the city be re­
sponsible for any loss that may occur
before the time of free storage empires.
This is a responsibility which many
cities to not care to take, and it is doubt­
ful if as many markets will be estab­
lished as originally anticipated.
P. B. Groat, the head of the immigra­
tion department of the Northern Pacific,
was in Jamestown Saturday. He says

ness that he has decided to issue another
one on the same plan this winter.

vember R. E. Walker, purchased from A.
O. Elder, 75 head of sheep at 83.50 a
head. Last Saturday Mr.Elder offered to
give Mr. Walker 83.00 ahead for the orig­
inal number of sheep, but instead of tak­
ing the sheep he would take the wool
and increase of the flock this year. This
would leave Mr. Walker at the end of
six months with 75 sheep that came
within 50 cents a head of paying for
themselves. Mr. Elder says he will
make the same offer to any one he has
sold sheep to. Who says there is no
money in sheep?

W. A. Kelley, one of the popular and
riBing young men of the state spent Sun­

pressed with our picturesque location
and the elegance and stability of our
buildings. He visited the asylum yester­
day afternoon and through the kindness
of Superintendent Archibald and Major
Lovell, was privileged to inspect the
mode) institution of the northwest. It
is invariably the rule that visitors to this
institution are forcibly impressed with
the advantageous plan and remarkaolo
cleanliness of the institution and the
wonderful influence of the superinten­
dent's ruin of kindness on the patients—
and Mr. Kelley was no exception to that
rule. Mr. Kelley has niade an enviable
record as the chief of the house enrolling
and engrossing force during the last two
legislatures. He is at present located at

not a snot on him. His hair began growing
right oil, and we thought lie would always be
bald-headed. There was not a spot on

weak lie could raise ncltherhand nor bead.

C. P. Smith has had vats built in the
basement of Jnmes River National bank
building and has started an egg "pick­
ling" establishment,the capacity of which
is 23,000 dozen. The "pickling" consists
of surrounding the eggs with a sort of
brine that keeps them fresh. The idea is
to buy eggs when they are plenty, pickle
them and sell here nnd elsewhere in the
winter, when tbey are scarce. There is al­
ways a good market for egRS in the weot
andsuch an enterprise should prove profit­
able for the projector and advantageous
for the city, in that it furnishes a good
market for hen-fruit. Mr. Smith states
that eggs are very soarce at present, but
that tbey are likely to come in from the
country at a lively rate when farmers get
through seeding.
There are now about 25 bicycles in
Jamestown and 10 or 15 cyders, can be
seen wheeling around the city every ev­
ening. There are enough bicycle owners
here to form quite a bicycle club an it
is very likely that such will be organ­
ized in the near future. Geo. L. Web­
ster is the latest addition to the ranks
of the cyclers. He has just received a
machine that is a beauty. It was manu­
factured especially for him and is un us­
ually heavy. Eleven new safety ma­
chines have been brought in this spring,
the purchasers were Dr. DePuy, M. L.
Parker, Rev. Wm Gibb, Mr. Mattison.
Frank Casey, W. B. S. Trimble, O. C.
St. Chenery, Frank Taylor,
Geo. L. Webster, A. M. Clough,
and Ralph Davidson. Among others,
who have machines are Dick Thorold,
Osmer Burleson, O. L. Churchill, E. M.
Chase, Mrs. Merry, Miss Mo Lain, Ralph
Uoper, Geo. Eager, Dell Ridgeley and A.
L. Barner.
Deaftaess Can't be Cured
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one wajr to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con­
dition of the mucous lining of the Eus­
tachian tube. When this tube gets in­
flamed you have a rumbling sound or
imperfect hearing,' and when it is entire­
ly closed, deafness is the result, and un­
less the inflammation can taken out and
this tube restored to its normal condition
hearing will be destroyed forever nine
cases out of ten are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflamed condi­
tion of the mucous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars for
any case of deafness (caused by catarrh)
that we .cannot cure by taking Hall's
catarrh cure. Send for circulars, free.

The Ladies Delighted.
The pleasant effect and the perfect
safety with which ladies may use the
liquid fruit laxative, Syrup of Figs,
under all conditioift make it their fa­
vorite remedy. It is pleasiag to the eye
and to the taste, gentle, yet effectual
in acting on the kidneys, liver and bow­
els.
