The record of cures accomplished by

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:

tending our city schools will be charged
tuition at the following rates,—for the
first six grades 81.00 per month grades
7, 8 and 9, 81.50 per month hi«h school
82.00 per month.
II. No non-resident pupil shall be ad­
mitted to our city schools unless tuition

satisfactory to the city board of educa­
tion is made in advance that such tui­
tion will be paid not later than the close
of
each
term, viz.: Dec. 20, March 31
and June 20, respectively.
Your attention is respectfully called to
the following references, authorizing
special districts to admit non-resident
pupils and charge tuition there
for: Art. xix, Sec. 181 subdivision
fourteen and to the powers and duties
of the district school board:—Art. vi,
Sec.70 of the general school laws of North
Dakota. 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

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.
Franken, Druggist, Sigourney, Iowa.
The noted liberal lecturer, Samuel P.
Putnam, will give three lectures on the
demands of "Liberalism and Free
Thought," at the court house in James­
town, on Saturday evening, Sunday af­
ternoon and evening, September 5 and 6.
All invited. Admission free. An able
orator come and hear him.
The only radical cure for rheumatism
is to eliminate from the blood the acid
that causes the disease. This is thor­
oughly effected by the persevering use of
Ayer's Sarsaparilla. Persist until cured.
The process may be slow, but the result
is sure.
Five years ago I had a constant cough,
night sweats, was greatly reduced in
flesh, and had been given up by my phy­
sicians. I began to take Ayer's Cherry
Pectoral, and after using two bottles of
this medicine, was completely cured."—

BELIEVE IN FORCE.
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.

It Causes Numerous Bobberies to Be
Committed in Various Portions
of the Country.
A Train on the Denver and IMo Grande
Held lip and the Express Car
Relieved of $3,000.
Two Men Compel a Kansas Cashier to
Give Up the Day's Receipts—One
Dead Now.
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. Y., Sept. 2.—The
parade and exercises of the grand com
lnandry, Knights Templar are in prog­
ress here, commanderies being present
from all important points in the state.
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. The mails left Japan only
eleven days before and are expected to
arrive in England within twenty-one
days. This greatly beats all previous
records.
Sliot My a Discharged Employe.
ST. LOUIS, MO., Sept. 2.—George C.
Anderson, superintendent of the Madison
(Ills.) car works,
while walking on Bremen
street at 7 a. in., was shot by a dis­
charged employe named Wan-en Col
bett, inflicting only a flesh wound. Col
bett, thinking he had killed Anderson,
placed the weapon to his head and blew
his brains out.
The Niagara Falls Tunnel.
BUFFALO. N. Y., Sept. 2.—The pre­
liminary work on the big tunnel at
Niagara Falls has been completed and
the work on the tunnel itself is now go­

Capt. Chas. Mueller, of the steamship
Felicia," says: "For several years I have
relied more upon Ayer's Tills than anything
else in the medicine chest, to regulate my
bowels, and those of the ship's crew. These
Pills are not severe in their action, but do
their work thoroughly. I have used them,
and with good effect, for the cure of rheu­
matism, kidney troubles, and dyspepsia."

SCROFULA
It is that impurity in the blood, which, a©
cumulating in the glands of the neck, pro­
duces unsightly lumps or swellings whicb
causes painful running sores on the arms,
legs, or feet whicb developes ulcers in the
eyes, ears, or nose, often causing blindness or
deafness which is the origin of pimples, can*
cerous growths, or the many other manifest*
tlons usually ascribed to "humors which,
fastening upon the lungs, causes consumption
and death. Being the most ancient, ft Is the

Sy talcing Hood's Sarsaparilla, which, by
the remarkable cures it has accomplished,
often when other medicines have failed, has
proven Itself to be a potent and peculiar
medicine for this disease. Some of these
cures are really wonderful. If you Buffer from
scrofula, be sure to try Hood's Sarsaparilla.
My daughter Mary was afflicted with scrof­
ulous sore neck from the time Bbe was 22 months
old till she became six years of age. Lumps
formed in her neck, and one of them after
growing to the size of a pigeon's egg, became
a running sore for over three years. We gave
her Hood's Sarsaparilla, when the lump and
all indications of scrofula entirely dis­
appeared, and now she seems to be a healthy
child." J. S. CABLILE, Nauright, N. J.

AFTER BALMACEDA.
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. The Con­
gressionalists have, within the few days,
brought strong pressure to bear on the
British foreign office to secure British
influence against the transfer to Balma­
ceda of the silver shipped from Valpa­
raiso in a British war vessel. There is
very little likelihood that the treasure
will be turned over to Balmaceda.
HIPPOLYTE LOSES HOPE.
The Haytien Ruler Apparently Relieves
He Cannot St«»m The Coming Revolution.
PORT'AV PRINCE. Sept. It looks now
as if Hippolvte had lost all hope of being
able to successfully resist the coming
revolution. He has sent his family to
Cape Havtien for safety. The command
ant of Fort National has received orders
to turn the guns on the city if the exiles
return and succeed in overpowering the
guards of the palace.
—C
Part of the Crew Drowned.
NEW YORK, Sept. 2.—The Arizona,
which arrived Monday morning, brought
with her eight members of the Sea Gull
which wits wrecked in a terrific gale of
wind on the African coast. Several of
the Sea Gull's crew were drowned.
ISiS Hotels Fail.
ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., Sept 2.—The
failure is announced of three of the
large-**, hotels here—the United States,
Congress Hall and Cambridge. Very
few particulars can as vet be obtained,
but the backward season is supposed to
be the cause of the failures.
