From Thurmtay's Dally. EberH. Bly, the Bismarck pioneer hotel man, is at the Gladstone. Toin Hatton, the well known Edgeley horse dealer, waa in the city yesterday. U. S. Atty. Camp left last night for Devils Lake to look up a timber theft ease. John Bnohanan of Carnngton, is vis iting with bis daughter, Mrs. James Wyard. Rev. Father Caasidy, for several years the faithful pastor of the Catholic ckurob here, died recently. Prank Ingalls was out today for the first time this week, having been con fined to the house with la grippe. Dr. DePuy was called to Fargo last eveDing in consultation with Dr. Vidal in regard to a serious case of typhoid fever. Miss Shortridge, daughter of the gov ernor, accompanied by Mits Porter, of Bismarck, went east to Valley City last night. The Fnld stock of goods is being moved into the Front street store room formerly occupied by Langeetb, the tailor. Mr. Fuld expects to further in crease his stock for the spring trade. Col. no. D. Benton was in the city yesterday on bank business. He has re cently returned from the east, and was at Washington and at Pittsburg, where a settlement was made with the People's bank by which the Lloyds' depositors got 810,000 cafeb. At the teachers' meeting last night held in the high school, Prof. Wagner delivered the first of a series of lectures which in the future, as time and oppor tunity will permit, will be given. His subject last evening was, "How to de velop the perceptive faculties." As today is a legal holiday th» child ren in the public schools have a holiday. The school board thought it was best to continue the holiday over another day in consideration of the fact that the childj ren'ti usual spring vacation has been curtailed. Accordingly there will be no school tomorrow. Col. Sam Mathews has now in full operation one of the best hotels in the northwest, the Metropole of Fargo. The table is firstclass. the office a model one, and the rooms handsomely furnished, with numerous hot and cold baths. The Metropole is well patronized by the pub lic and the demand for transient service has been large since the opening. There are a lot of tamarack fence posts belonging to the Lloyds bank, at New York Mills, also several car loads of wb6d. The times are too quiet to realize much from fence posts as few improve ments are made on farms now. Frank Lenz, deputy receiver, has been looking up the condition and location of these assets, and they will be disposed of as eoon as practicable. Will Hotchkiss and Grant Clemens returned last evening from a trip to the Midwinter fair. They report a very pleasant trip, with the exception of the coast trip to San Francisco, which was attended with seasickness. San Fran cisco tbey report as filled with a large population of idle men, hungry for em ployment at almost any price, so that body and soul could be kept together. Yesterday Justice Bigelow released Frank Niedecken, on his own recogni zance. The boy was arrested and con fessed to stealing a team of horses which be had sold recently to Wm. Walker for $30. The sisters of the boy state that Frank had no right to sell the team, it being left in their care and demanded of the boy that he secure them. As he saw no method of getting them again he went that night and stole the horses. It is stated that no money had been ex changed for the animals, a personal note having been given. As improbable as it might at first ap pear, the story of how the Lloyds depositors were filched out of 810,000 by the old gold brick fake, as told in The Alert last night, is confirmed by the Capital, which says it has known the facts a long time, but promised a"dis interested party" not to tell. The Capital eays the swindle occurred in 1892 instead of 1891. Thw is not correct. The deal occurred in 1891, as stated in The Alert. In 1892 the Lloyds block was built, and William Lloyd remained in Jamestown during that summer. He left for Europe, July 2nd, 1891. The Capital further says, that 1. M. Lloyd let Mr. Holt have the money from the bank. The brick was tested and declared to be genuine and during the exchange of the money for the brick a copper brick was substituted for the other one. The confidence man got away with the 810,000, and the bank got an other valuable security, upon which it will realize, according to the Capital. 100 cents on the dollar. From Friday's Daily. Hicks predicts a stormy March, with a storm period beginning the 3rd. Mr. and Mrs. Mattaon returned this morning from a visit with friends at Tower City last night. Attorney Charles Pollock of Fargo, was an east bound passenger laat even ing from the state capitol. Mrs R. F. Marshall, mother of Dis patcher Frank Burrett, who has been visiting him for several weeks past, re turned last evening to her home at Mar shalltown, Iowa. There was a gathering of young people this afternoon at the hospitable residence of C. E. Austin, on Fifth avenue, south, for the purpose of organizing a round table club. The Fanny llice Comedy company will present a three act musical and mirth provoking comedy, March 1st, at the Opera house. The company is a large one. and iB now playing in all the beet theatres of the const cities. The ladies of the Congregational church gave a well attended social last evening at which the immortal George was well represented and many fruitless attempts made to chop down the proverb ial cherry tree. Coffee and cake was served and a small sum of money realized by the management. W. H. Bartlett: I like The Alert's sentiments on the money question. This thing of issuing bo ds is a fraud on the people. The statement that present bard times and panics of the past are due to changes in administrations is nonsense the way I look at it. I do not think that by simply changing adminis trations without doing anythiug else, better timeB will be had. Somethmg must be done on the money question different from the present. St. Paul Globe, 22nd: Col. Dodge, counsel for the Great Northern road, and wife, and Senator Fuller of Jamestown, North Dakota, left last night for a trip south. They will make a tour of Texas, and perhaps visit Mexico and Florida before their return home. It is given out that the trip is for pleasure only, but the Globe detective bureau received a (iuiet tip to tbo effect, that the party has located Menage and that the apprehen sion of the fugitive may follow. li. A. Kirk, senior member of the hard ware tirm of Kirk it Allen, was in the city today on a short business trip. He is also a member of .the tirm of Farwell, Ozman, Kirk it Co., general hardware merchants of St. Paul, who have secured the old Mast,- Buford Burwell building at the corner of Third and Broadway and now have a crew of men tearing the structure down preparatory to the erec tion of a tine six story brick building to accommodate their large and increasing hardware trade. Mr. Kirk intends to return this evening. The ninth annual ball of Company last evening was a largely attended affair and every one seemed to enjoy the occa sion. The members of the company were out in dress uniforms, and this, together with the handsome costumes of the ladies, made a very pretty scene. Previ ous to the ball a competitive drill was held, the winner of which received a gold medal. Col. Miller and Lieuts. Gleason and Poole acted as judges, while Capt. Flint gave the commands. As fast as failures to comply with the orders occur red the members stepped out of the ranks. The drill was closely watched and much interest shown by the assem bled guests when the contestants had been lessened to Corporal Roper, Private Conklin and Third Sergt. Proctor. A few additional commands were given, a false movement made by the two former and Sergt. Proctor declared the winner. The medal was presented by Col. Miller in a few pleasant remarks. The winner was roundly applauded by his comrades and the guests. Afterwards the floors of the hall were crowded with happy dancers, The friends of the boys turned out in force, young and old, and kept up the merry whirl until a late hour. Price served refreshments, aud the Warnock orchestra provided the music. The affair was as usual, a great success. From Saturday's I »aily• There were a large number of farmers in the city today. Tickets for the $400 diamond are going rapidly at the Gladstone. Mrs. K. H. lleid left for Fargo last evening to spend a day with friende. Al.

Last evening the ladies of the Ord?r of Eastern Star, three sleighloads strong, drove out to the residence of Geo. H. Woodbury and gave his hospitable man sion a house warming. Provisions were taken along and a delightful time en joyed. The justice court is a great plaos of attraction for the past two days and standing room liaB been dillicult to se cure at times. The witnesses and spec tators are packed in like sardines and glad to get in even at that price. The nstice is a popular official. The farmers report the roads very slip pery and it almost impossible to bring in farm produce or take out supplies except in small quantities. Instead of hauling out full loads of fuel, but a few hundred pounds are taken. Many wish to bring in hay and other produce but cannot at present. John H. Lings of Minneapolis, expert accountant, who has been examining the Lloyds bank books has completed his work and returned home, Mr. Lings WBB employed by the comptroller for the purpose, aud is reported to have made thorough examination of the important work allotted him. In North Dakota the sign of spring is not connected with the ground bog or his hole, but with the coat of the jack rabbit. The people of the Jack Rabbit state know when spring is coming by the turning of the rabbit's hair from white to drab. The drab colored jack is now to be seen ghosting along the prairies. C. S. Wallace of Pennsylvania, brother of R. E. Wallace, arrived last night from a trip to Arizona and the coast. He says that people in the far west do not realize the extent of the hard times that prevail in the east, and that there is a boom comparatively speaking in Seattle and other western cities, along side of the business in Pennsylvania and eastern stateR. Mr. Wallace left for home to night. Attorney Camp returned last evening from Devils Lake where he had been called in reference to the case of John E. Setz, a farmer of Eddy county, charged with cutting down and carrying away timber from government land other than for the uaval services of the United States. Setz waived examination and was bound over to the term of United States court to be held at Bismarck in March. He was allowed to go on his own recognizance. At the celebration of the anniversary of the K. of P. order at Mo'orhead, Mon day night, Sir Knight Emanuel of the Jamestown lodge, gave an address on the order in North Dakota. It was the most profound and eloquent effort in the list. He said among other things that its monument was composed of ."00,000 noble men who were loyal to the state and nation and practiced the three great principles of the order, "Fraternity," "Charity" and "Benevolence." The Princess Colonua, daughter of Mrs. Bonanza Mackay, the California millionaire, has gone to either North or South Dakota for a divorce from her die solute European lord. Her location is yet unknown and is being sought after by the eastern press reporters. No doubt any Dakota town would be pleased to have the lady of immense wealth take up her residence with them. The New York World learns she has gone to North Dakota, with children, servants and bag gage. A Valley City paper says that James town must be one of the most immoral and objectionable places in the state when it is necessary to roast the council and police every day for weeks by the standing publication of a grand jury re port in a daily paper of the city. The people outside of this city are informed that the publication of the ''grand jury roast" daily since Jan. 11 by the Capital is not approved by the majority of the people here and that there is no excuse or warrant for it. The correspondent of The Alert at Pingree states that the many friends of Mrs. Dr. A. Richmond, formerly of Ed munds, but now Ellisnore, Cal., will be grieved to learn that she has lost her reason and is now confined in an asylum for the insane. Shortly before her de parture for the west Bhe was thrown from a buggy and her head injured. She recovered apparently. Since arriving in California she has been very much dis satisfied with the country and homesick, and finally lost her reaeon. She was a very intelligent lady and well known in this city. Her large number of friends in this city will hope for a speedy recovery. There is an opportunity for the farm ers in the James river valley to make a success of raising good seed potatoes for the markets in warmer climes and lees favorable latitudes. In no part of the United States do the mealy tubers oome to greater perfection, nor can the culti vation be carried on more cheaply than here. The Early Ohio, Early Rose and Beauty of Hebron varieties are the fav orites and these are in demand in other states for changing seed. One merchant has recently received several applications from parties outside of the state asking for prioes for eucli seed potatoes. One inquiry oatne from Kansas and another from Ohic. There is an opening for the North Dakota farmer in this direotion. Landlord Ingraham has a force of men at work on the Grand Central block and the process of remodelling is progressing rapidly. The carpenters, lathers, plaster era and paper hangers almost touch elbows and the. renovation is as thorough as "elbow grease" and new materials can make it. Among the discoveries made in the process of tearing up was that of a passage way which led from the store room on the corner, down cellar and to the adjoining room to the west. The path the entiro distance is lined with bottlea and from the labels which they bear one would infer that at some time in their existence they contained either beer or straight whiskey. The outlet of the passage, which had minor openings to the floor above, WAS in the rear of the block where a skid way permitted the raising and lowering of heavy bodies. It is surmised that in this locality the pro hibition law was not a favorite. Nathan Fuld: The morning Capital states that a blind pig has been conduct ed in the cellar of the Grand Central corner. I desire to say that 1 knew nothing of it while I occupied the room as a olothing store. In times past the former oocupants of the rodm, which was used as a saloon, may have stored in the cellar boxes and bottles, bat the cellar has nDt been used by me for any purpose but Btoring old shelving. It seems to me that the parties who are making a big talk about the discovery of these old bot tles know more about the matter than the sheriff himself, who is supposed to have kept closed all the entrances to the adjoining room from which an en trance way leads into this same cellar, aud that no one had a right to go yito the cellar until the sheriff permits. I believe our officers here always do their duty in every case where they have the chance to punish violators of the law. No one knows more about these matters than the officers themselves, but if the Capital knows any more please let u'6 hear from it. FKKDLNU WHKrlT TO HOGS. More 1'rotit. in it and Kasily Done. Quick Ucsults. The low price of wheat, no matter what the cause, will make farmers give more attention to the raising of stock, for in that line lies tha most profit to be expected from diversification. "The his tory of exclusive grain raising for the market," says the editor of an eastern stock journal, "is exhaustion of the soil and bankruptcy of the one following the business." Hog raising has proved profitable the past few years and North Dakota farmers are beginning to inquire into it more than ever. The raising of hogs in the slate is no experiment. They are freer from cholera and other swine diseases here, than hogs allowed to wal low in the shme of standing ponds and in the mud of the southern states. The following suggestions on the feeding of wheat to hogs are taken from the Swine herd, a Chicago mouthiy publication, a number of copies of which hpvo been or dered sent gratis to farmers in the Jim River Valley by Mr. E. P. Wells, in hopes of getting greater attention paid to the raising of pork, and less to the growing of wheat. A few years ago wheat was not in the category of foods for animals, principally because the market v. lue would not admit of it. But, latterly, the price of whaat has dropped so low, compared with corn, and the price of pork appre ciated to 6uch an extent that wheat fed to hogs yields a handsome profit. Es pecially is this the case with the wheat below the standard grades, which cause? a heavy discount in the price because deficient in the qualities required to make a standard arucle of dour, yet possessing feeding qualities nearly equal to the best grades. It has been proven that wheat fed to good thrifty shoats in good condition made one pouud of gain from three pounds of wheat, or at the rate of 20 lbs of gain from a bushel of wheat and that one pound gain from four of wheat is a fair average gain, or 15 lbs gain to a bushel. This does not require much figuring to show a good price obtained for wheat by running it through the hogs, being about double the price it is selling for at the local markets in Minnesota, Dakota, Nebraska and Kansas. In relation to the manner of feeding, a farmer writes: It can be fed to better advantage if it is soaked long enough to soften the grains thoroughly. The objection to feeding it without soaking is that it is naturally a hard crain. and being small more or less of it will be swallowed without being properly masticated, and the consequence is that more or less of it will not be digested, and of course this is waste. Wheat, before it is fed to hogs, should be soaked at least 10 or 12 hours, and 24 would not be too much. Use two barrels, and as fast as one is fed out fill it up and put to soak while the other is being fed. In putting to soak use plenty of water. The grain swells very much, and plenty of water is needed to soften it thorough ly. It is best to begin feeding with a light ration and gradually increase until they are given all that they will eat up clean at each meal. With all kinds of stock it is comparatively easy to overfeed at the start, and it will require some time entirely to recover from the effect. The better plan is to bring them to full feed gradually and then, once on full rations, to crowd as much as possible. Another good way of feeding wheat to hogs, is to grind it coarse and then make it into a slop with milk if it can be had. or with water if milk cannot be secured. Fattening hogs can be given all that they can eat of this, and if thrifty and given comfortable quarters and plenty of pure water will fatten very rapidly. As Others See It.
