WhenJamee S. Bradway of Diokey left, ostensibly on a collecting tour Nov 20, aays the LaBloure Chronicle, he left a store stock of goods that will inven tory about 13,500. His whereaboute are unknown and the Russell & Miller Co of this oity took possession of the store under a $200 attachment proceeding. Jewett Bros, of Aberdeen followed with an attachment for $670.88. Since which tiiae the creditors -wbo appear to be legion—have written, telegraphed and inquired how their rights can be pro tected. The largest creditors have tak en steps tojdeolare the estate insolvent. Other assets in the state if discovered, will be secured though creditors believe, if Mr. Bradway basi gone, that he did not go empty handed. Mrs. Bradway disolaims knowledge of her husband's whereabouts. Exbnmed The Body. After the burial of tbe remains of Fireman Joe Williams in Oshkosb, Wis., rumors were current that be had met his death is some other way than report ed that it was not Williams, tLat the oasket was empty it bad not been open from the time it left Mandan, and that Williams, if dead, had received his quietus in some other way. It was at last determined, to settle all doubts to have the body exhumed. This was done in the presence of witnesses, and the charred remains revealed by the open ing of the casket gave mute and tfrew some proof of the accuracy of the ong inaJ story." Will Advance Private Funds. Sioux Falls, Deo. 16: Governor An drew E. Lee arrived in the city for con sultation with the railroad commission ers with reference to the plans in connection with carrying on the rate canoe against the railroads. The reoent decision of tbe supreme court wherein it held that the commission wonld not be permitted to draw more than half of tbe biennial appropriation, was fully dis cussed. It was found that while tbe decision of the supreme court practically blocked the commisiioo from proceeding further, unless a special seesion of tbe legislature was called, a final alternative was de cided upon, that of raising the funds by private subscription. Governor Lee and others guaranteed tbe necessary money to carry on tbe cases and the commis sion will oontinue the fight begun. PROSPERITY AMONG REDS Ooveruinent Gives Them Land, Teams, Seed and Implements Contented Wards. A correspondent writes about how prosperous the Indians are on tbe Ft. Bertbold reservation. He says tbe Indians are contented and busy that they are good farmers, but did not raise quite enough wheat for their flour this year, so some flour bad to be bought. The contractor wbo furnished tbe flour nlar» furnished theoais which the Indians didn't raise. The correspondent likes to see United Slates Indian agents pros perous as well as the Indians, and goes on to say. Tbe Indians ..are fair farmers, each bead of a family havtt^f 160 acres of land allotted to him for cultivation. Addi tions of eighty acres are made to this allotment for children eighteen months of age. The government furnishes agri cultural tools and implements and the Indian* famish their own seed, saved from the orops of previous years.

Cattle ate also raised by tbe Indians, and are purobased by tbe government for distribution. There are now about 3,000 head of cattle owned by tbe Indians and they have been able so far to furnish for all the beef issued and will probably continue to do so. The Indians are en couraged by the Indian agent in the pursuit of farming occupations, and the result is mutually beneficial. There are about 1,160 Indians on the reservation.* If tbe government would set white men np in farming as the Indians are coddled and assisted there wouldn't be any trouble in raising enough wheat for bread. In addition to this assistance they have free sohools and are going to be allowed to vote. Kidney, Bladder and Urinary Troubles.

Dynpepala or Indigestion. Dr. Fenner's Dyspepsia Cure, as the name implies, is bimply for dyspepsia or indigestion, and should be superior to the general run of preparations or pre scriptions because it is prepared by a physician of many years study and ex perience, whose writings on medioal questions are aooepted as authorities. If not satisfied after using one bottle Dr. Baldwin of Jamestown will refund your money. And Eight "Pigs" Recently Closed. William Hayes was shot through the head by Herman Becker, forman of the Lehigh Coal company mine at Lebigb and may die. Becker is in jail. Whisky •nd few words were the cause. Wednesday morning a resident of ^uorhead lost a barn with ten head of horses, nine bead -of cattle and thirty three bogs by tire, besides 800 bushels of itatoes, 800 of oats, tbe binders, wag ons, driving rigs and harness.

Thus we find that a whisky seller can be tried, found guilty and punished in North Da itkta as well as any other criminal. This action of tbe supreme court places the man who defies tbe laws of bis state and sells intoxicating liquors oontrary to tbose laws, un a level with burglars and firebugs and horse thieves. He is branded as criminal and should be treated as such by all law abiding citi zens.—Valley City People's Advocate. The etymology of the word cbinook ia interesting, and is given by B. S. Pague, local foroast office at Portland, Ore., aa follows: "The term chinook wind had its ongiu from the tribe of Cbinook In dians (now almost extinot, but wbiob was very strong and powerful some sixty or seventy-five years ago that had its home in tbe southwestern portion of Washington on tbe Columbia river. Local historians relate how the north west wiud iu tbe winter season, being tbe harbinger of fair weather, was called by tbe trappers of Astoria 'the wind from over Chinook camp.' As tbe trappers scattered to tbe east of tbe Cascades, they occasionally encountereJ a warm southerly wind which gradually assumed the name of cbinook wind.

MAY WHEAT AT 91.50. iMHnlMd laadnr of th« Cblenco Ball C1I«M Makas a Prediction. CHICAGO, Dec. 18.—G.~B. French, the recognised agent of the Leiter inter est in wheat, imparted a bit of informa tion during the day which wheat spec ulator have for months been anxious to know. He also ventured a prediction on the future of May wheat. "Our wheat cost us very near 70 cents," said Mr. French, "and at that price we think we can afford to take it in, pay for it and see what it lookV like. Our position, as we have said right along, is simply that of merchandisers. The line was bought,, including the transfers, at the price I name and our position is not that of a speculator. It is as if a straight line was drawn from 70 oents up to $1.10, as against the position of the speculator who had Bought and Sold at the Same Prleaa, but who had also bought and sold at so many intermediate points as to entirely change his position. In regard to the wheat situation at present I will say that I think speculators are watching the local conditions and entirely ignor ing the legitimate position. As soon as the deficiency of supplies and the urgency of tbe demand become more apparent I wiU not be a bit surprised to see May wheat at |1.50. At that time the highest price in the country will be at Minneapolis—the millers' market. Wheat will be going to Minneapolis in the spring on actual demand for grind ing, just as it has recently been coming to Chicago on an alleged corner. It is not improbable that many Northwest ern farmers will be coming here for seed wheat" PEACE IN THE PHILIPPINES. Madrid Government Annonneea That la •argent* Hra Submitted. MADRID, Dec. 18.—An extraordinary number of The Gazette issued during the day publishes dispatches received from ManiUa, capital of the Philippine islands, saying that the insurgent ehief, Aguinaldo, has ordered all his follow ers to submit and that he and his entire insurgent government will be allowed to go to Hong Kong.

"The beautiful coral necklaces and brooches that were once so fashionable are seldom worn now by women in this country," said a New York dealer In rare and curious ornaments to a Wash ington 8tar reporter recently. "Thir ty years ago the material was in great demand for all aorta of articles of per aonal adornment. At the present day coral is used largely pnly in such coun tries as Abyssinia, tbe Congo, the Cape, India and Ceylon* Siberia, China and Japan. The choicest pieces are used for the buttons of Chinese mandarins or for ornamenting the turbans of rich Mussulmans, while the inferior quali ties are sent to leas civilized countries, where they are employed for various purposes. "Coral baa been often used aa money in oriental countries, but that use of it is now declining. Barbarous and semi civilized peoplea employ it largely for ornamenting arrows, lances and pikes, and also for decorating corpses before interment. Prices have varied much of late years, a rapid decline in value having taken place, owing principally to the scarcity of good and the compara tive abundance of inferior qualities. "Besides the loss accruing to the fish erman the present scarcity of coral ia very seriously affecting the large num ber of people employed in preparing the material for market. There has been a great decline in the number of women thus engaged at Leghorn, and the same state of affairs is evident at Naples and Genoa, the other principal seats of the industry. Nowadays the proportion of inferior quality is so much larger that fewer persons are required to manipu late the quantity. No machinery or me chanical process is employed. The workman simply takes (pieces of coral into his or her hands, one after an other, and. according to their thickness, quality and defects, works them into certain forms. Their wages run from 15 cents to 35 cents per day." OYSTER GROWING IN A BOITLE. laterentla* Cnrloelty Fond la the RappskaasMk Hirer. D. M. Nelson, agent of the Weans Steamboat company at Urbana, on the Rappahannock river., lately-brought up to Baltimore a curiosity discovered by him which has created considerable in terest amoqg steamboat people about Light street wharf, reports the Balti more American. It is a live oyster of large size girowing out of the mouth of a yeast powder bot tle, which was found on the ahore of the Rappahannock river. The oyster is considerably larger than the bottle, and only a small portion ia in side. Upon the sides of the bottle are several small oysters of tiny size, firm ly fastened there. Mr. Nelson has brought up a story more wonderful tha.ui his oysters, and for which there haa as yet been no evidence produced. It is of an old gentleman who lives near Urbana, and who, so the story goes, while bathing during the summer lost a set of false teeth, which floated away or went to the bottom. Lately, while dredging, an oysterman brought up to the surface a pair of false teeth around which a number of oysters were clinging, some of them of good slae, and fastened on firmly. The old gentleman promptly' identified his teeth, and keeps them as a curiosity. Salmoa ud Whisky. Salmon fishing has been very poor on the river Spey this season, owing, it seems, to the whisky refuse from the distilleries on the banks. Anglers assert that the refuse kills or drives away the fish, while the distillers say that the salmon is hungry for it and thrive on it. For either cause, how ever, the salmon will no longer touoh the flies. SWIM BifMltlra.
