for the children. My son has entered the
college there, a school which I learn

other noted places of learning. The other

will begin at Cincinnati, extend through
a number of Southern states when such
plapes as Tampa, St. Augustine, Jack­
sonville, Savannah and Charleston and
others will be visited and return made to
Cincinnati six days later. Reception
committees* at the various places will
convey the delegates over the cities and
look after their entertainment while in
their midst. An interesting program has
been arranged for the three meetings
and items of much interest will be dis­
cussed pro and con.
The city streets were disturbed last
night by a runaway, the first for some
time. It seems that Mr. Jackson was
taking a wagon load of kindling wood
down to his home in the southern part
of tbe city when, in crossing the railroad
traek, the team was made unmanageable
by the near approach of an engine, and
dashed down the street distributing the
load, the driver and Mr. Jackson at
different parts of their route. The teafo
bid good bye to the wagon and the
remainder of the load at tbe corner of
Fifth and Pacific avenues and started
out on a little career of freedom for
themselves, in doing which a small
building was overturned and some of the
harness slightly damaged. It is under­
stood that beyond a few scratches no
injury resulted to the participants.

Fall plowing is difficult work. The
ground has become pretty dry dur­
ing the fall and not near the usual
amount of work can be accomplished by
teams, on that account. There is a pre­
vailing desire to get plowed back all the
land possible this fall.
The boiler house is rapidly nearing

J. F. Richards writes *om Pennsyl­
vania, that he "sees by the papers that
North Dakota has been having some very
bad weather," and is glad he hasn't had
to live here and "suffer the cold and
snow." Undoubtedly the eastern press
have been publishing their usual yarns
about the northwest, but no people on
earth have enjoyed finer weather than
has prevailed for the past month in this
state. No snow has yet fallen in the
James river valley, and a most successful
agricultural fair was held in this city last
week. It is thus apparent that Mr.
Richards is wasting sympathy—and The
Alert feels sorry for him.
The funeral of Mrs. William Dunning
took place yesterday afternoon at the
Highland Home cemetery. Services
were held at the Presbyterian church,
which were attended by a large number
of friends. The quartette choir sang
some very beautiful and appropriate
pieces,which were followed by a discourse
from Rev. Wm. Gibb, from Rev. 14-13,
'Blessed are the dead that die in the
Lord." The remains were borne to the
grave attended by a large number of
friends, who deeply sympathise with the
bereaved family in the great loss which
has befallen them. J. J. Latta, C. T.
Hills. E. J. Schwellenbach, J. Knauf
and FrankC/lemens acted as pall bearers,
Mrs. Carter and family came in from
the west yesterday and left for their
home at Huron, S. !., this morning.
Took Well Their Part.
The public school celebration in honor
of Columbus day, was a very interesting
evant in Jamestown. The parade of the
school children attracted favorable no­
tice, and each pupil took a creditable
part in the exercises of the forenoon.
Seward Post, G. A. R., also turned out to
assist in the celebration, and after the
reading of the president's proclamation
by Superintendent Wadsworth, the vet­
erans raised the new flag over the high
school building. It was saluted with
three cheers from the multitude, and the
pupils each pledged allegiance to the
banner of the republic.
The procession then moved to the fair
grounds, where the following program

at the home of the bride's parents oil
Sixth avenue south. The bride appeared
before the altar in a beautiful white silk
dress and from amidst the floral sur­

lovely. The receipt of numerous and
elegant presents testify to her many
friendships, and the high esteem in
which she is held. After the ceremony,

To sell goods below others and make money is the
secret of success in the mercantile business with
a practical experience of 15 years in the Dry Goods
business, knowing how to buy, what to buy and when
to buy enables us to sell you dry goods below what
others can sell them that is the reason we can under­

A German Speaker.
Prof. Leon S. Koch spoke at the Mutz
school house Tuesday night, and
at the court house Wednesday even­
ing. Mr. Koch has been on the stump
for the republicans since September 15tb,
and has visised all the strong German
settlements in the southern and western
counties of tbe state, speaking in both
the German and English languages. He
discusses the tariff question principally,
but gives some attention \to the silver
issue, and prohibition. He reports a
bright outlook for republican success in
North Dakota, and says tLe great ma­
jority of his nationality will vote for Har­
rison. Prohibition has driven a good
many out of the party, but he says as a
rule they regard the temperance question
as amoral rather than a political matter.
Those opposed to Harrison are for Cleve­
land, he says, and are not identified with
what he terms the "calamity oarty." Mr.
Koch goes from Jamestown to Sanborn
and Valley City, and will spend the re­
mainder of the campaignin the northern
part of the state.
Hon. E. C. D. Shortridge, independent
and democratic candidate for governor,
addressed a meeting at Ypsilanti Tuesday
night, which was attended by thirty-two
farmers. He will spend the remainder
of the week in Stutsman county. In
reference to the statement that he was
avoiding Fargo in his campaign, Mr.
Shortridge said today that he would be
glad.to meet Gov. Burke at that place,
any date, in joint debate on state and
national issues, each to be assisted by
one other speaker. Unless this challenge
is accepted, however, Mr. Shortridge will
continue his school house campaign.
Budd is Enthusiastic.
Budd Reeves in Fargo Forum: Yon
can put down Shortridge's majority any­
where from 7,000 to 10,000. I don't find
a farmer in the state who is not for him:
he makes a good impression every where
he goes, and people who have not seen
him and know him only by reputation
thiuk him a crank, but are agreeably sur­
prised when they meet him. They fall
on his neck and weep as they embrace
him as their Moses, who will iead them
on to victory. His shirt collar only lasts
a half a day, as it is worn off by the
farmers scrambling to get their arms
around him.
