POINTS ON DUCK SHOOTING.
A Ftw Hint* of Value Regarding a Popu lar Spring Sport. Western sportsmen claim that tbeir can vasback ducks are more delicate and better flavored than those of the Chesapeake, and many Long Island professionals who have WATCHING FOR THE BIRDS, followed the birds admit the claim. The birds are thiu and poor when they first ap pear in the inland lakes, but they find the same food as in the eastern marshes, and soon attain excellent condition and are free from the sedgy flavor of birds killed on the salt water. Canvasbacks are the last to appear in the west. They are preceded in order as they are named, by the blue winged teal, the mallards and widgeons. The old controversy over the classing of the canvas back is still going on. Naturalists class him among sea ducks, but the western sportsman are touchy on the point and claim him as a fresh water bird. They have some strong support in the statistics, which show that thousands are shot in the west every year. A good thing for the sportsman of either east or west to remember is that the ducks seek the windward side of the marshes. If the wind is blowing from the north it is sensible to go to the northward to make a stand, and if from the west tb look through the western reed grass, and so on. Re member, too, that the frequent and seem ingly erratic movements of the birds are for the purpose of procuring food. By watching the wind and bearing these simple facts in mind the sportsman can precede his birds to a certain spot. In shallow marshes a change of wind means a change in the depth of the water—that is, less wa ter to windward—and knowing this the shoal feeding ducks fly against the wind. To a true sportsman the result of the bag is not always the measure of a day's sport. Often when he is in the wrong place, without time to move, with rain falling and other disadvantages, he has what he calls magnificent sport. It is the constant possibility of a shot, the practice DOWN THET COME. of the whistle to inveigle the birds within range in a word, it is the victory over dif ficulties that makes a satisfactory after noon. To call to a flock spread out against the sky in a mass, like a long, narrow kite to crouch down and watch them with in creasing anxiety and impatience to whistle more softly as they confidingly answer at last to shoot with rapid and confident de liberation, and then to see the birds come down splash!—ah, that is splendid, because it is duck shooting! Sport like this is never wearisome. There is endless variety in •every shot that is fired, and the birds, the sun and the wind each offers a new condi tion and a new surprise. A good day's duck shooting will be a memory never to be forgotten, even after the arms can no longer carry the faithful rifle and the ears no longer attend to the sharp "whirr" of the approaching birds. WILLIS STEELL. LIGHT AND AIRY. AII Od« to .Spring. Sweet spirit of the rainbow wing. Oh, hasten thee to bless us With flowers make glad our eyes, fair spring. With balmy airs caress us. Come, gentle spring! Too long the trees Stand leatless in my garden Too long the bitter wintry breeze Bids lake and streamlet harden. Come, gentle spring! Come back to earth. End all our woe and sadness Come, bring thy sunny days of mirth And revelry and gladness. Sweet spring, if thou art yet in doubt I've one more plea still stronger Come—for my overcoat's worn out And will not last much longer. —New York Herald. Squeezing tlie Market. "It must be nice to lie a bear," said Amanda softly, as she pre-empted another Inch of Bibbins' half of the sofa. "You think so?" "Yes it says in the paper that the bears on the market are being squeezed." And then from the sofa came a sigh of satisfaction that denoted that in spite of the pressure no bear panic was imminent, —fit. Joseph News. She Humored Hiin. "You have a scar upon your cheek?" Said Everard to modest Zeke, "Explain it!" The latter seemed inclined to quell The secret, tho' be couldn't well Contain it. A moment stood he like a fool. And then from verbal vestibule He shot it. "You see," aaid he. with manner **I asked Miss Pepper for her hand. And got it." —Boston Comer. A DOUBLE STEAL. The Farmers Discover a Hebe me to Rob Them of Just Weights on Grain. Valley City Times-Record: Tuesday thn Times -Record was informed that the alliance farmers had dropped onto a scheme of an elevator man, that was one of the most damnable attempts at robbery that was ever perpetrated in any civilized community. In the construction of the scales at all warehouses or elevators, underneath the scales there is what is known as a pit. It is said that it has been discovered that an elevator man has been in the habit of having his assistant go down into this pit, and when the farmer weighs his load the assistant would hold up on the beam and make it weigh less, and when the wagon was to be weighed, the man in the pit would bear down on the beam and make the wagon weigh more, thus work ing in a double steal on the farmer. The matter is now in the hands of determined farmers and it will not be long, we are informed, before the guilty parties will be brought to face the law in the case. The charge is a serious one and it should be brought to an issue at once. The farmers should be protected. There is also a move on foot to estab lish a city weighing scale, where farmers and others can have their commodities weighed in a fair manner, by a reliable party, to be appointed by the oity, charg ing the farmers a small fee for the same. Valley City should see to it that her home market is protected from any such deal as that above mentioned. A fair deal should be given the farmers and every advantage accorded them to market their grain and produce at this point. Let the matter be given a careful inves tigation. Return of the Birds. Most of the migratory birds have re turned from the south and either remain ed here orgone further north. The do mestic birds, like the robin, bluebird, dove and others, have begun nesting in the timber along the river. The plover is just getting along, and one can hear his single clear note from the sky, yet seldom see him. It is the same in his migration south in the fall. He starts early, along in August, and travels night and day when once started. The sea gulls are also to be observed dipping along to the far north in their wander ing, steady flight. It is singular enough that these birds which live on the waves and dispart themselves the day long on the wing far from land, should annually return to the most distant interior to build their nests. They evidently breed on the shores of the Arctic ocean or Hud son bay, along side of the white or snowy geese, which tarry in the Dakota fields so numerously in October and November, and seem to avoid warm weather like a pestilence. The young and old of these geese, in migrating north. keep in separate Hocks, although they start at the same time. Living in the same locality in winter, they keep divided, and when seen in re pose on the sandbars of the southern ocean and rivers, remain as far apart as possible. It is said the young do not attain tbeir full plumage before the fourth year. Of course the ducks of all kinds are now in their breeding places but owing to the scarcity of small ponds in this state, have largely deserted us. Their presence in the fall has also been less numerous on this account. If anyone desired any further evidence of the advent of spring or rather summer, it can be found in the arrival of a pair of purple martens that have taken up their abode in a secluded corner on the roof of The Alert office. There they make head quarters and keep up a most friendly twitter while diligently preparing to rear their accustomed two broods during the coming summer months. Arbor Day at the Public Schools. Speaking of the observance of Arbor day. Superintendent Fisher 6ays: "In the forenoon the three schools on the north side assembled in Miss Vincent's department and followed the exercises indicated in The Alert of May 5. It ie but just to teachers and pnpils to say that all did exceedingly well, an inter esting set of exercises being given. The schools were favored by the presence of a number of friends and patrons of the school. After the exercises each school tiled out to the tree purchased and plant ed by it, after which the pupils were per mitted to go home, having the afternoon as a half-holiday. In all, four trees were planted on the north side—three by the pupils and one by the teachers. In the afternoon the south side schools assembled in the lower hall of the school building and gave the program formerly outlined. The only change made was in having the exercises in the hall instead of out doors as formerly intended. The Drogram was well carried out, each pupil doing full credit to the department he represented. Several visitors were pres ent and all seemed pleased with the ex ercises and the manner in which they were rendered. Eleven trees were plant ed by this school, all of which received appropriate names. Of the object of Arbor day it is need less to speak—of its strict observance too much can not be said. What may now seem like dreary wastes aruund our school houses may soon become pleasant groves. Ten years of perseverance and care will work a transformation little dreamad of. May this not be the last Arbor day ob served in Jamestown, and may its teach ings and sentiments spread till eve'ry school house in Dakota shall be enclosed by a pleasant grove. '•Jov to the thought of our own. own tree! I,ON'K mav its branches shade our way Tills task shall ever our p'easure be— Planting a tree on Arlwr day." An examination for positions in the rail way mail service will be held at Bismarck May 14th. There is a scarcity of appli cants from NorthDakota,and postmasters are requested to give notice of this ex amination through the newspapers, with a view to inducing suitable persons to enter the examination. Male citizens of the United States between the ages of 18 and 35 years are eligible. A Delightful Concert. The music rendered by the Musin Con ceit company Friday was so far super ior to any that has been heard here in years, that those who remained away can scarcely realize the treat they missed. The audience was small in numbers, ac counted for perhaps by the numerous at tractions that have appeared in succes sion of late, but what it lacked in num bers it made good by the heartiest ap preciation. Musin himself is an artist, with few, if any superiors in the concert circuit. The violin under his hands at once takes its place as the king of solo instruments. He graciously responded to encores and delighted every listener with music of the masters, perfectl pltiyed. He did not attempt to display mere mechnnicnl skill by rendering catch or trick music,—a very pleasant innova tion on the work of many professionals. The singing by Mrs. Tanner and Miss Parmater was fully equal to the High standard set by Musin. Both ladies possess clear, powerful and perfectly trained voices. In a song, aocompanied by Musin with the violin, Mrs. Tanner's voice and the instrument's tone could, in many beautiful passages, scarcely be dis tinguished, so alike were they. The pianist, Edward ScharfF,and the "baritone Karl Storr, round out and completed the artistic work of the company. Beaver Brevities. J. Milhollin has now a herd of several hundred cattle. Those who have se cured a stand iu this herd have provided well for their stock. Jesse is a rustler and his herd has the benefit of a full day's feed in abundant pastures. Most every one has taken his turn in disposing of a few beeves. Traffic in horses still continues, mostly purchases of working stock to help out the spring's work. Early sown grain has been up several days. Farmers are scratching in the balance as fast as possible. One can hardly stop to say "how do." as. Shadow's horse was evidently of a different opinion. As Jim »vas hitching him to the buggy Tuesday morning, he broke away and ran toward Jamestown, his former home, leaving fragments of harness by the wayside. He no doubt preferred city to country life and was bound to shake off every vestige of the country before meeting his city associ ates, but appeared quite crest-fallen as he limped back,—a captive. CLEM. The Lloyd's National. The charter for the new Lloyds Na tional bank, has arrived, and the work of transferring the accounts into the new books has been nearly completed. This work has kept the bank force busy day and night. An entire new set of books is required to conform to the methods re quired of national banks. With its past record of prosperity and sound business judgment, together with its present ample banking facilities, the Lloyds national takes its place as one of the strongest and best managed financial institutions in the state, and is a credit to the city where located. A Great Railroad, By absorbing the old Chicago A Atlan tic railway, the Erie lines (N. Y., L. E. & W. R. R.) have effected their entrance into Chicago. They now occupy the proud position of being the only line be tween Chicago and New York that runs all its express trains through between these points without change. As a re sult of the above, improvements in pas senger service have been made, and the line is reaping its reward in largely in creased travel. $5.00 Reward. Lost or stolen, from Street's stock car, on the night of the 16th inst., between Mandan and Medina,, North Dakota, a new Collins No. 128 stock saddle. The above reward will be paid for the return of saddle or information leading to its return. If returned, reward will be paid and no questions asked. Address R. Finger, South Heart, N.
