Fargo Argus: Miss Marie L. Page and Miss Jennie Beals have reached Fargo after a five years' absence in Europe. Their friends hope to have the pleasure of listening to their rare musical talents while here. The record of cures accomplished by Hood's Sarsuparilla can never be com pletely written. The peculiar curative powers of Hood's Sarsaparilla are suc cessful when everything 9lse has failed. If your blood is impure, your digestion out of order, try Hood's "Sursaparilla. The miiBicale at Mrs. F. Iilapp's resi dence last night, was as usual a pleasant affair, and well attended. The program published yesterday in The Alert, was well rendered, the pupils showing a high degree of proficiency in everything undertaken. There is no diminution in the success of Mrs. Klapp as a musical instructor of exceptional ability. Policeman McKechnie has been making an inspection of the debris thrown from the back doors of the business places into the street or lots. There is a great deal of this rubbish, especially paper of all sizes. It is blown intg the streets and often frightens horses, besides accumu lating near buildings where it is liable to be set fire at any time. Merchants are asked to be as careful about depositing rubbish in the rear of their stores, as pos sible. A traveler: While coming in on the train last week from Fargo the attention of passengers was attracted to the per formances of an elevator man whom no one seemed to know. He was evidently from Minneapolis, and would get off at the stations, assume an excited air, and begin to declare in a very loud voice that there was not a grain of No. 1 hard wheat along the road. He seemed to have sent word to local agents to meet him. as it is said be addressed his con versation to them, but more particularly for the benefit of the bystanders. He was taking a very noisy and gloomy view of the work of the frost. Everyone who heard the man knew what he meant— that it boded no good to the farmers. He only came as far as Valley City. John Inglis, a crop sxpert, employed for eight years by a syndicate comprising the heaviest speculators and wealthiest commissicn houses on the Chicago board of trade, was sent to North Dakota im mediately on reports of frost to ascer tain the amount of damage done. He visited Jamestown and the Jim river valley in his trip. He soys that the frost seems to have come in streaks that where strips fifteen feet long have been touched, 200 yards often intervenes be fore any other damaged grain is found. He says the reports in the Chicago papers are grossly exaggerated. He esti mates the loss at two or three per cent., and has wired Chicago to that effect. His estimate is too low in the opinion of many, at least for this vicinity. The same general effects now to be seen are reported from nearly every county in the state, viz., blackened potato vines, cu cumber and pumpkin tops and corn. A loss pf 2 or 3 per cent could hardly be called a loss at all. Inglis is a bear—and his employes are bears. Anton Klaus has built a warehouse about a block south of the Main street bridge, for the purpose of buying and handling wheat this fall and winter, and will be ready for business as soon as wheat is offered for sale. Mr. Klaus is an old time wheat dealer and has bought thousands of bushels in the county. He is buying the hard wheat of this state to ship exclusively to Wisconsin millers, who require at least one-third hard wheat to mix with soft wheat, the year around. In looking over his old books, Mr. Klaus finds that he paid in the winters of 18S1 and 1882 as high as 81.25 and 81.36 a bushel for wheat in Jamestowu, and hopes and expects to do the same this next year. He will buy by sample alto gather, as he says the so-called grades of No. 1, 2 and 3 Northern, rejected, &c., are all humbug. He buys grain on its merits and will pay all there is "in it." Farmers who have wheat, rye, flax or barley to sell, will do well to consult him at the warehouse before disposing of it. Notice to School Directors. JAMESTOWN, N. D., Aug. 21,1891. To the board of directors of school dis tricts: Gentlemen—Your attention is oalled to the following resolutions adopted by the board of education of Jamestown city school: I.

Above action has been taken after due deliberation and because of the over crowded state of our city schools, makiug it necessary to seat and furnish extra rooms and to employ additional teaohing force therein. Very respectfully submitted, GEO. S. FISHEK, SUDC. City Schools. By order of committee. 'Windsor and «tt. Pleasant Notes. Wheat will be all cut ihis week. No frost to amount to anything. There are several townships south of Windsor where frost scarcely left a trace. N. B. Merry says he had two acres of barley that took eleven pounds of twine. Frank Bennett will buy wheat at Wind sor for the North Dakota Elevator com pany. Frank was there before and gave general satisfuctton. A. A. Clothier Bays he has sold several tons of twine and will have to order more. Bert Maston has located a stock ranch southwest of Windsor, and will put in 300 head of cattle and 500 head of sheep. Mack Sinclair is building an addition to his house, and says he will paint it "red." Stock of all kinds has done remarkably well this summer, there being such an abundance of nutritious grass. T. Thorn ton sold a spring calf to Sheriff Schmitz that weighed 650 pounds. Farmers in tflis part of the county are going to do all their plowing this fall. Early sown wheat is the "daisy," the opinion of C. Thomas to the contrary notwithstanding. Ypsilanti, Last Monday night, the stable belong ing to P. V. Fellows caught fire. The flames consumed stable, sheds, about 40 tons of hay and part of the header owned by Messrs. Fellows, Dewey and Ilagiin. The tire was started by a lantern. The stable, we understand, was insured. Our school did not begin this week, as was expected, as several of the children were sick with the scarlet fever, though of a mild form. Mrs. W. H. Doughty is spending a few days with friends in .lamestown. Harvesting is still in progress, though the last few rainy days have put the har vesters back some. Miss Minnie Dewey left Monday for her school in Clark Cr We propose that UH« gun club enforce its laws and put a slop to hunters from the city shooting our chickens and ducks —especially stop them shooting on Sun day. For Over Fifty Years. Mrs. Winslow's Soothing Syrup for children teething, is the prescription of one of the best female nurses and phy sicians in the United States, and has been used for over fifty years with never failing success by millions of mother for their children. During the process of teething its value is incalculable. It relieves the child from pain, cures dys entery and diarrhoea, griping in the bowels, and wind-colic. By giving health to the child it rests the mother. Price 25c a bottle. They are Building Granaries. There is a strong disposition among the farmers of the county to hold their wheat for a few months, or at least part of it. They realize thac prices should be higher than at present, and that this year's good crop does not guarantee next year's big yield. That if the old country does not have general large crops next year, prices of grain will be continuously high. Inquiry among lumber dealers in Jamestown-discloses the fact that lumber is goioj* out into the country every day with which to build granaries. Additions and extensions to those already built are being made. Of course almost every farmer will have to sell part of his crop to pay debts and harvesting expenses, but they are going to hold more wheat on their own farms this year than ever before. One lumber dealer has sold material for over 10 bins or granar ies already 20 of these for the Carring ton fc Casey farm. .Among the Stutsman county farmers who have bought lumber for granaries to be built at once are Mess/s. Sherman, Burleson, Marshal, Bronson, Wiedeman, Wright, Horn, Tucker, Porter and others. Many of course will stack grain, but nearly all are preparing to re tain in on their own places. Every rea son seems this year to exist for doing this. I suffered from acute inflammation in my nose and head—for a week at a time I could not see. I used Ely's Cream Balm and in a few days I was cured. It is wonderful how quick it helped me.— Mrs. Georgie S. Judson, Hartford, Conn. Being a suiferer from chronic catarrh, and having derived great benefit from the use of Ely's Cream Balm, I can high ly recommend it. Its sales are far in ex cess of all other catarrh remedies.—B.

A Branch of the Alliance That Is Pledged to Use Bullets If Necessary. KANSAS CITY, MO., —The Star says: It transpired during the recent state meeting of the Farmers' Alliance at Warrensburg, Mo., that there was an organization within the Alliance which believed in force as a measure to obtain the objects of the Alliance. It was the knowledge of the existence of this "force element" that defeated the sub-treasury resolution which was championed es pecially by the latter element. The force party had forty-eight delegates in the convention. One of them, speaking to a reporter about the organization, said: "If the minority will not do what the majority wills, it is high time for the majority to hang the minority. If bal lots won't do the business, bullets will, and there area lot of us pledged to go that far." Ex-President Hall, who asserts that his life has been declared a forfeit in the underground meetings of the people, was and is keenly alive to this existence. The secret order calls itself the "anti monopolists," but very few, if any, farmers belong to it. Its strength lies mainly in the cities, and the farmers are its cat-paws to rake its political chest nuts from the fire. Hall Issues an Appeal. ST. LOUIS, MO., Sept. 2.—Ex-Presi dent Hall, of the Missouri Alliance, has issued an appeal in the shape of a circu lar letter, addressed to all the sub-treas treasury leaders throughout this and other states, asking them to meet and select delegates to the national meeting of the anti-sub-treasury brothers to be held in this city Sept. 15. Ex-President Hall is making a hard fight notwith standing his defeat at the recent conven tion. Hall's stand is said to have strengthened him considerably. He declares the sub-treasury scheme is a measure to ruin the Alliance and will use every endeavor to avert the impend-1 ing disaster^ Icniel by Vanderbilts. NEW YORK, Sept. 3.—Absolute denial has been authorized of the reports that the Vanderbilts had obtained control of the Union Pacific railroad. It is be lieved, however, that interests repre sented by J. Pierpont Morgan have ac quired control but that no change in the management will be made until the an nual election is held. Wounded by a Lion. MONTREAL, Sept. 2.—WliiltfHobinson's circus street parade was in progress here several of the lions in an open cage be gan fighting. Equestrian Lawler tried to quilt them, when one of the lions seized him with one of his paws and lacerated his head and face in a terrible manner, ft is thought he will die. Trains to He Taken Oft*. ST. PAUL, Sept. 2.—The Milwaukee and Great Northern roads have decided to take off several more of their short line trains between this city and Minne apolis, because of the falling off in traf icon account of the electric lines. Fatal Ftght ttotnecn Trumps. CLEARITED, Pa., Sept. 2.—A hand to hand fight occurred here among a large parry of tramps. Clubs, knives and stones were used, and two men were fatally stabbed. Three others were badly hurt. The sheriff with a force of men finally reached the scene of conflict and stepped tho row. Two arrests were made. mwwmimwwin liiMWihiwubMBM——raKa»«y»w.'i» 'jmniuuFitmmm THE GREED FOR GOLD It Causes Numerous Bobberies to Be Committed in Various Portions of the Country.

TEXAS CREEK, Colo., Sept. 2.—The Denver and Rio Grande train No. 4, from Ogden, was "held up" four miles fcest of this station during the night, by eeven masked men, and the express car robbed of about $3,600. None of the passengers were molested. The night track walker was overhauled by the rob bers at 9 o'clock in the evening and com pelled to flag the train. Torpedoes were placed on the track. Sheriffs of neigh boring counties have dispatched posses in pursuit of the robbers. Another Account. DENVER, Sept. 2.—A dispatch received here shortly after midnight stated that train No. 4 on the Denver and Rio Grande road had been "held up" by masked robbers between Cotopaxi and Bead Creek. All the money in the ex press car was taken. One of the robbers was described as a man of 40, wearing a dark stiff liat. A second member of the party was a man of about the same age a third was a smooth-faced boy, appar ently not over 20. A detective agency was at once called upon and a car load of operatives were quickly started for the scene of the robbery on a special train, accompanied by the surgeon of the road. TOOK ALL IN SIGHT. Daring and Successful Hunk Robbery at Cordcr, Ivan. KANSAS CITY, Sept. 2.—A daring and successful bank robbery took place at Corder, a small station on the Chicago and Alton railroad, near Higginsville. About 2:30 p. m. two men rode up to the American bank, dismounted, walked into the bank, shut the door and locked it before the cashier took notice of what was going on. When the latter did take notice, he saw two revolvers levelled at his head. At the same time one of the men commanded him to throw up his hands. He obeyed. One of the men kept him covered with a revolver while the other went through the bank. He secured only §090 in currency, repre senting the receipts of the day. Having obtained all the money in sight, the robbers mounted their horses and fled. Officers are in pursuit. Lynched One of the Robbers. KANSAS CITY, Mo., Sept. 2.—One of the desperadoes who robbed the Corder, Mo., bank was captured about twenty miles from Corder and about half of the stolen money recovered. He gave his name as Andrew Mnrrell. It is reported that the officers who had the man in charge were met on their way to Lex ington, the county seat, by a mob who overpowered them and lynched the pris oner. The other robber is being closely pursued. Fowler Bound Over. VIROQUA, Wis., Sept. 1.—The conclu sion of the preliminary examination of Irvin J. Fowler, charged with complic ity with Andrew Grondstaff in the mur der of the Drake family, brought a large crowd to this city, and especially of peo ple living in the Kicliapoo region, where the murder was committed. After a length}' trial lasting all day, Fowler was held to the circuit court by Justice Rob erts without bail. The defense made for Fowler by his attorney was in the main an attempt to prove that the statement of Charles Smith, one of the parties to whom the alleged confession was made, could not be true because Fowler claimed to be at other places on the dates Smith named. Three Arrested for Murder. HARTFORD. Coim., Sept. 2.—'Three men have been arrested on suspicion of know ing something of the murder of the Bushenliagens. They are Louis Laur, Pat McDonald and John Parker. Of those arrested Laur seems to be the most deeply implicated. He denies having seen the Buslienhagens in four years, but he has been positively identified as the man who drove with them to Hart ford on Friday. The prisoners were com mitted to jail to await a hearing, which will be had on Sent. 10._ Knights Templar at Saratoga. SARATOGA, N.

There were about 2,000 knights in line. Would lie Unlikely. BOSTON, Sept. 2.—A director of the Union Pacific says: "I have not heard that Gould, Sage or Dillon have sold any of their Union Pacific holding as is re ported. They are all heavy subscribers to the debt certificates and it would be hardly likely for them to sell out at this time. Upwards of three-quarters of the debt certificates are now placed and the amount is steadily incaeasing. I do not known whether Mr. Dillon is going to resign or not." Fcrbidden to Destroy Telegrams. DENVER, Sept. 2.—District Attorney Stevens has obtained an injunction from Judge Allen restraining the Western Union Telegraph company from destroy ing any telegrams which may have passed between Dr. T. Thatcher Graves and friends in Rhode Island while the doctor was in this city before and after the death of Mrs. Barnabv. RUSSELL WAS ANGRY. Collector Fassett Refused tha President's Son the Vie of a Revenue Cutter. NEW YORK, Sept. 2.—The Sun says: Collector Fassett, backed by Secretary Foster, has refused to let Russell Harri son have the United States revenue cut ter Grant for the purpose of going down the bay to meet Mrs. Russell Harrison and Mrs. McKee when they arrive on the Majestic. Mr. Harrison is said to have been very angry at the refusal. The reason given for the refusal is that it is not customary to transfer women from steamers to small craft. Such transfers are difficult and dangerous even for men. In only two instances has the rule been broken—in the case of Nellie Grant Sartoris, when her father was dying, and of Miss Folsom, when she was on her way home to be married to President Cleveland. Simply to Meet the Stesmtr. NEW YORK, Sept. 2.—Collector Fassett has placed the revenue cutter Grant at the disposal of Mrs. President Harrison to go down the bay and meet her daugh ter and daughter-in-law on the Majestic. The ladies will not be transferred from the Majectic to the cutter, but the latter will merely accompany the steamer to her dock. Iowa's State Fair. DES MOINES, Sept. 2.—The thirty eighth annual Iowa state fair has been formally opened. The weather was perfect and 10,000 to 15,000 people were on the grounds. The hog show is said to be the greatest ever held. The exhib its of sheep are greatly increased over former years. The cattle market is very fine. The horse show is larger than ever in roadstei-s but there are not so many draught horses. Libeled His Own Yacht. NEW YORK, Sept. 2.—Frederick Van derbilt, owner of the yacht Conquerer, held by the custom house authorities for duties, through his attorneys, has filed a libel in the United States court against his own vessel. He states that the Con queror was built at Glasgow that he bought her there that he is a member of the Royal Mersey Yacht club, and that his yacht is enrolled on that club's list. He asks that he may be placed in posses sion of the yacht. To Pension Georgia Veterans. ATLANTA, Ga., Sept. 2.—The force of public opinion is having its effect on the Georgia legislators who voted against furnishing a home to such needy Con federates as are now in the poor house. The opponents of the measure have held a conference, the result of which was the introduction of a bill pensioning all indigent Confederates. One hundred dollars per year is the amount fixed for each pensioner. The bill will undoubt edly pass. Beats all Previous Records. MONTREAL, Sept. 2.—A dispatch from Winnipeg says that a special train car rying the mails of the Canadian Pacific railroad's steamship. Empress of Japan, passed there during the morning, cover ing the distance from Vancouver in two days.

Isnrcent Ships Go Out to Intercept the Vecsel lie Is Supposed to Have Bailed On. [UNITED PRESS.] NEW YORK, Sept. 2.—A special from Vaiparaiso to The World, dated Aug. 31, says Balmaceda is supposed to have been endeavoring to escape from San Antonio on the Almirante Condel, which was seen off that port during the morn ing. The Esmeralda and Aconagua have gone out to intercept the Condel. It is supposed that Baimaceda's intention is to meet the imperial Cuhuano and escape to Montevideo. All the hospitals here are full of the wounded, and private houses are bing used temporarily. It is estimated that there are 4,000 wounded now in the city. The property of the Babnacedists will be'confiscated to pay off the paper issue of the dictator. The banks have been temporarily closed for the inspection of their books, in order to ascertain the amounts to the credit of Balmaceda and his satel lites. The city is quiet. The merciless slaughter of rioters and incendiaries effectually suppressed all disturbances. Although the Congressionalist forces are weakened by the departure of the troops sent to Santiago to restore order there, and under Colonel Canto to take formal possession of the capital, the citizens' guard and the American, British. Ger man and French marines remain on duty, and there is no likelihood that Val pariso will again be disturbed by war. The Congressionalists are determined to repress all treasonable utterances by word and in writing. They have made an example of Leon Lavin, the editor of the Balmacedan newspaper, The Jornal de Comercio. He was shot yesterday for issuing seditious pamphlets, and hia fate will be that of any partisans of the lost cause who seek to inflame the pop ular mind against the victors. BALMACEDA'S SUCCESSOR. Congressionalists May Make Don Aagnv tin Edwards President of Chili. LoxDON'.Sept. 2 —It is reported here on the strength of statements made by the Congressional agents in Paris and London that Don Augustin Edwards will be the next president of Chili. He is one of the wealthiest, if not the wealthiest, of Chilians, and in the early period of the insurrection he supplied funds lavishly for the support of the revolutionary cause. He has many friends in the higher class in England and on the continent, and is largely in terested in the nitrate trade. He has a splendid farm in Chili, which, up to the time of the war. was stocked with Ihe best blooded cattle that money could ob tain in Europe. These cattle, during the war, were slaughtered for food for Balmaceda's troops, and the property of Edwards both in the city rmd country was laid waste. He narrowly escaped with his own life. The Congressional ists have always looked to him as their leading representative, although he has not taken an active personal part in naval or military affairs.
