In Fargo the thermometer is reported to have ranged between 20 nnd 34 below zero. Thanksgiving was generally observed indoors and close to fires. Yesterday the same spell of coldness continued, but last night it greatly moderated and a light fall of snow fell throughout the state. Today is mild and pleasant in comparison. Alex Capehart, who has been rustling newspaper "write ups" at the World's fair and who served as an expert on one of the award committees, has secured a good berth in Washington on the work of preparation of a history of the fair for the government. His especial worK will be a descriptive nnd statistical account of the liberal arts building. The position commands a good salary and is likely to last for several yefrs. "Cape" still has a herd of stock on tbe Missouri slope, and has made money putting up hay, besides realizing handsomely on the stock. For an all round hustler few of the boys can get away with "Cape." The current number of The Common School, published at Grafton, has an in teresting letter on the Jamestown city schools from Prof. F. A. Wagner. The work of the pupils and teachers is out lined as well as the results to which they wish to attain. In writing of the study of musio and drawing, he says: "I would not, however, have you get the impression that we teach musio and drawing simply for the artistic. We aim to make the musio develop strong, clear voices to develop cheer in the school room and happiness at the fireside. In drawing, it is our purpose so to arrange the work that the pupil will have, in addition to a verbal expression of thought, a language more powerful than words, a language that can be used in history, in geography, and in the study of any and all of the sciences, We are almost ready to set some of the pupils to making designs, one of the most helpful things in the development of the human mind. After these designs have been drawn, the pupils will work them out in clay and wood." From Monday's Daily. W. B. S. Trimble is on the sick list today.

Slight dashes of rain this afternoon gave gentle reminders of summer days gone by. Tbe effect of the rain and a Chinook wind was remarkable in making the snow rapidly disappear as in a spring thaw. Before Justice Bigelow this afternoon occurred the trial of the case of the state vs. Jesse Millholland for the alleged theft of lumber from a granary said to belong to Jas. A. Carter. A number of witnesses were called on both sides. Traveling man: The Gladstone is making a better showing than could be expected in a short time.

The firm of Weil Bros., consisting of L. H. and Ely Weil, has been dissolved by mutual consent, and hereafter the business will be carried on by Louis H., the elder brother.

Since starting in business here the firm has been quite successful, having received their full share of the clothing trade of the city. The numer ous friends of Mr. Weil will regret his departure. The Jamestown artesian well has never, as yet, furnished any basis for fish story, but the following additional de tails of the efforts of the Mayville well are given for future reference. The Tri bune of that place says: "Supt. Mc Kissick of the May ville farm brought in to town a tex days since a pailful of minnows which must have had a very interesting experience. Would that they could have told it. An artesian well on tfie Graudin farm, seven miles south of Mayville, has been spouting fish for sev eral weeks past till the trough and the brooklet running from it are full of min nows. The little fish are of the usual brook type and are as bright eyed and lively as fish taken fresh from the river. It is thought that they may have fol lowed an underground channel from some lake over in Steele county, and were brought up the 450 feet of pipe by uprushing water. The little travelers may be seen in the natural science room at the Normal building." A crazy man in Fargo, Sunday morn ing, frightened passers-by on Broadway as he paced back ana forth, with an ugly looking knife in his hand, in front of the Elliott hotel. He was waiting to "do" some imaginary person who had stolen bis money. When questioned by tbe officers be stated that be had worked all summer for a farmer near Jamestown and had saved about 160 with whioh he intended to purchase a ticket at St. Paul for bis home in Germany. Arriving at St. Paul in tbe night, a few days ago, he bad hardly gotten out of the depot before some one had "touched" him for his savings. The loss of his money seems to have been the cause of hia insanity. He wandered around St. Paul for a day or two looking for tbe thief, and not finding him, oonoluded he would seek him in Fargo. He beat his way up in a box car and reached there nearly frozen and half famished. He is about 25 yoars of age. His name was not given. Krotu Tuesday's DaUv.

The buildings, with one or two exceptions, will be rebuilt next year. The Eagle issued an extra. Yesterday evening at about six o'clock the chimney in the residence of Road master Daley burned out, causing the family considerable alarm. For a time it was uncertain as to whether the fire would be subdued or not. Householders will do well to take extra precautions during such windy weather to prevent the wiping out of the city. Fargo Republican: Tbe lack of inter est shown by Fargo ladies in the case of the unfortunate, Morphine Mary, (now in the county jail) is another illustration of a well established fact, i. e., the fallen woman receives little sympathy from her sex. Flowers for Newberry, tbe train robber bon-bons for Remington, tbe murderer not even a word of comfort for poor old Mag. Geo. Kurtz, who was ia the city yes terday, reports quite a number of wolves in his locality. Traps have been set in the hopes of capturing the marauders, but so far none have been destroyed. In tbe immediate vicinity of the Kurtz farm thera are few sheep. The large number of sheep in the county and their easy capture are said to be the cause of the increasing number of wolves. Junius Howe, agent of the Dan'l Sully company, has placed an advertisement in The Alert of the performance of Mr. Sully's company next Monday evening. The plav is a new one here, and the actor's reputation already established. Mr. Sully is one of the sterling Irish actors of the stage, and has just closed a week's engagement at the Metropol itan opera house in St. Paul. Postmaster Smith reports that the re ceipts from the sale of postage stamps for the month of November amounted to $521.58 from money orders $3,389.

Bartholomew of Bismarck, has offered a reward of $5 for informa tion that will establish the ownership and cruelty, if neglect was the cause, of the death of a sorrel horse, which was found dead in the streets of Bismarck recently.

A. McKechnie: That rain of yester day reminds me of the yeai 1877 when I plowed half a day on Christmas. Rain commenced falling on the afternoon of the 23rd, fell all day on the 24th, and stopped about 9 or 10 o'clock on Xmas morning. There was about 48 hours of steady rain all over this region and more or less plowing was done afterwards along the line of the Northern Pacific, which was completed to this point. We have had rain in all months of the year in this latitude. Three years ago we had rain in December, about as yesterday. From Wednesday's Dallv. Alf Ellsworth is under the weather with la giippe.

J. M. Eldridge, Davenport, Iowa: Your paper comeB to me regular as a clock, and always welcome. I have taken it from the day it was born and expect to continue as long as I have an interest in the Davenport farm or the town of Eldridge. The chairs in the council room have been reseated and wardrobe books pro vided adding much to tbe convenience of the members. Hereafter the crowd in the "gallery" will seat themselves on the soft side of a 2x12 plank, leaving tbe chairs for the city officers. W. C.

It will cost $152 a year to keep it up. At the end of fifteen years it is good for 85,000—a rather good speculation. Washburn Leadei: James McBride and a party while returning from a hunt ing reconnoisance above Fort Stevenson, noticed a wolf running with something attacLed to its leg which finally gave way ard the animal bounded lightly out of sight. Tbe attachment proved anew No. 3 trap with the wolf's frozen foot left in its clasped iaws. Tbe wolf was out a foot and the trapper out a trap, a prime pelt and the state bounty. Miss Utley: Why anyone should start a report, that I had lost my property in Chicago and returned to New York to my sisters, 1 can not see. Nothing of the kind is true. My cottage which rented for $100 a month during the fair, now rents for $25, but I have the property just the same. I have not yet decided where I will locate, probably in Chicago, but do not expect to go into business again for a year or two. COUNTY COMMISSIONERS. [OFFICIAL.

Grand Forks News: State Auditor Porter takes a common sense view of the financial situation left on his bands as a legacy of tbe late legislature.
