While the independents and demo
crats are figuring on capturing the
county offices, the republicans themselves
may have a word or two to say about
that. The plan is to put up a'good clean
ticket, and make a tight to win with it.
There is a general disposition to rotate
offices and give everybody a fuir chance.
The case of State vs. Adron Burleson,
charged with disposing of glandered
horses, was taken up in Justice Eager's
court today, pursuant to adjournment
from last we?k. Two witnesses were
•samined before noon and the hearing
was continued after dinner. States
Attorney Gonklin is prosecuting, and
Fredrus Baldwiu represents the defend­
L. P. Hillyer, of Grundy Centre, la.,
an acquaintance of Frank Montgomery,
has been looking up land investments in
this state. He is much pleased with the
prospect for increase in land values and
has bought a good sized area of real
estate in Barnes county. He spent tha
night in Jamestown find left for the
south today.
An automatic grain weigher and bushel
accountant, which is attached to thresh­
ing machines to keep accurate record of
the yield, stands in front of Eager's place
on Main street. It has attracted con­
siderable attention and keeps one man
pretty busy informing the public what it
is. This morning a printed sipu was
hung up, reading "Greenback machine,"
and the pedestrian now smiles and passes
Up to date the Alliance Hail company
has been very fortunate in its risks
Scarcely $1,500 in losses have been ad­
justed, and all reported have been ad­
justed. Last year in July there were
over 320,000 in adjusted losses. Manager
Fancher is beginning to believe that with
the return of rainy weather, the hail
danger will decrease. Hail was never
insured against during the first years of
wheat raising in the eighties.
Geo. D. BenRon of this city, was
awarded first prize in the Minneapolis
Tribune's cartoon contest. Cartoons
were received from all the leading cities
of the country, portraying the fashionable
follies of the fair sex, and the committee
of Minneapolis ladies who acted as
judges gave the first prize to the James­
town man. His cartoon 6hows the
decollette bodice, the altitudinous
bustle, the twelve-foot train, the tight
fitting 6kirt, the pointed sleeves, and
other fads which have in turn received
the homage of the ladies.
The social party given at the resi­
dence of Rev. and Mrs. Harvey last night
was a delightful event. The large house
was brilliantly lighted and the rooms
handsomely decorated. Invited guests
to the number of fifty or more were
present, and the evening was passed
amid many unusual attractions. There
was music of an enjoyable character—
vocal and instrumental—and during the
evening an elegant lunch was served.
The genial host and hostess spared no
pains to entertain their friends. Before
the guests departed a novel and pleasing
incident in the way of a display of fire­
works was witnessed.
M. D. Williams is authority for the
statement that the People's party will
have a full ticket in the field in this
county this fall, presenting a list of can­
didates from constable up to president,
and making a square fight to elect the
whole ticket. Who the candidates will
be for the several offices is yet unknown,
as no slates have been made up, but it is
believed the independents will not lack
first-class material for all the positions
which are to be filled. With the demo­
crats and repiiDlicans already pretty
evenly balanced, and both old parties
putting forth their best efforts to effect
a "clean sweep" in Stutsman county
this fail, Mr. Williams considers the out­
look for the independents very satisfac­
tory. At any rate, they will make the
contest, and some carefully arranged
slates may possibly have to be revised.
There are lively times ahead.
Eldridge Notes.
Mr. and Mrs. James D. Ogilvie are
receiving congratulations on the strength
of the arrival of another boy at their
home last Friday morning. Mrs. Krauf
Wink, who is usually about the vicmity
on such auspicious occasions, reports the
led as being a promising young Dako
As was generally expected the Far
mers' alii"nee picnic held here last
Saturday was a gigantic success. Rep­
resentatives from all parts of the county
were present and entered heartily into
the proceedings of the day. Hon.
Lampman of Valley City, made an ex­
cellent speech of the kind, but it was ill
adapted for the occasion. Notwith­
standing this fact, had he put ou brakes
at the expiration of thirty minutes he
would have received the plaudits of the
people as it was they grew tired and
weary. At social gatherings of this
nature short speeches and a
number of them, interspersed
with music and singing, is what interests
the people. Had an opportunity been
afforded Messrs. Fancher, Boynton,
Wade, Goodrich. Williams and Rev.
Gibb for a few minutes each, the gather­
ing would have been better entertained
and amused. The dinner was a whale
with modern attachments and everybody
satisfied the clamorous calls of a craving
appetite with a decided relish. The base
ball game was a large sized pudding for
the Jamestown club and convinced the
Eldridge boys that in order to be able to
play ball they must practice occasionally.
The defeat caused our team no chagrin
whatever, as all of us entertain a warm
feeling behind our watch pockets for our
neighborly brothers on the Jim. The
horse and foot races created dead loads
of excitement and fun for everybody,
while the pie race capped the climax,
causing a perfect pandemonium. The
dance at night was well attended and the
party broke up at 12 o'clock, all feeling
well satisfied with the day's pleasure.
The special sent to the Inter Ocean
that a paralytic chill passed down Henry
Xiemeyer's spinal column immediately
after he made the running jump of
twenty-three feet, is discredited. It is
thought that Jim Bellivou, Hank's ac­
complice in orime, was the promulga­
tor of the statement.

John H. Reid and See C. Sea insured
their crops against bail in the Alliance

farmers in North Dakota should unite

their crop it. It would secure cheap
and reliable insurance. In union there
is strength.

Colic and Cholera Morbus.
Colic, cholera morbus, cramps and
many other affections of the stomach
and bowels prevalent at this time o*
year are due to two causes. First, the
depressing effect of the hot weather upon
the nervous eystem, and second, the use
of green fruit, cucumbers, melons, eto
No one is safe from painful and even
dangeroua attacks of these affections un­
less unusual precautions are taken at
this time of year. A tablespoonful of
Pe-ru-na taken beforo each meal is a
complete protection against theses
maladies. Pe-ru-na is not
only a preventive of colic,
cholera morbus, cramps, stomach ache,
summer diarrhoea and cholera, but is
also a prompt cure for these diseases]
Where the attack is very severe and
painful a wine glassful of Pe-ru-na
should be taken at once, followed by two
tablespoonful doseB until complete re­
lief is obtained. This never fails in a
single case. In cases of less severity a
tablespoonful every hour is sufficient.
No one should ueglect the precaution of
taking a dose of Pe-ru-na before each
meal, until the hot season is over.

The following, clipped from the Bur­
lington Junction. (Mo.,) Post, contains
information of no little value to persons
troubled with indigestion:
For years the editor of the Post has
been subject to cramp colic or tits of
indigestion, that prostrated him for
several hours and unfitted him for busi­
ness for two or three days afterward.
About a year ago we called on S. J.
Butcher, druggist, and asked for some­
thing to ward off an attack that was
alieady making life hideous. Mr.
Butcher hauded os a bottle of Chamber­
lain's colic, cholera and diarrhoea
remedy. We took tbe medicine accord­
ing to directions, and not only found
relief on that occasion, but have several
times sir ce tried its virtues and found
relief in every instance. We take this
method of acknowledging the benefits
denved and recommending the cure to
all others subject to indigestion. For
sale by City drug store.

In another column of this paper will
be found an advestisement of a medicine
known as Chamberlain's Colio, Cholera
and Diarrhoea Remedy, for sale by tbe
City drug store of this place. In almost
every neighborhood throughout the west,
there are some one or more persons whose
lives have been saved by this remedy. It
is natural for such persons to take espec­
ial pleasure in recommending the rem­
edy to otlTers. The praise that follows its
introduction and use makes il immensely
popular. While it is intended especially
for colio, cholera morbus, dysentery and
diarrhote, it is also claimed to cure
chronic diarrhoae. If such be tbe case,
it is certainly a "Godsend" to many a
poor mortal.
