A new rural route has been recora

number of farmers will be getting
rheir daily mail in about two months.
Congressman Marshall expedited the
A Griggs coun fcy boy went into a
barn with a girl named Amelia
Ceier, to get a shoe last. A rifle
was found by the boy, who thought
lessly pickcd it up, pointed the gun
at the girl, and tired a bullet which
entered lier shoulder. The child was
innocent of any attempt to commit
injury and the girl was very lucky in
not being instantly killed.
A prisoner in a Griggs county jail,
built a lire of old bed clothing and
papers in the top of a steel cag«.
The smoke filled the building, and
the prisoner armed himself with a
hammer, and threatened to kill any
one who tried to put out the fire.
The sheriff arrived soon aftenvaxds,
and relieved the prisoner of his
weapon, put out the fire and locked
up the "bug" in his cell.
Valley City Times Record: Judge
Glaspell notified Clerk of the Court
Henry yesterday that no civil cases
would be tried at thg term of court
which convenes next week. Nothing
but criminal cases will be acted on.
There are twenty—one of these cases

Grand Forks Press: There has
been presented to the University of
North Dakta by Mrs. J. M. Cochrane
the gift of a valuable library. The
library is a memorial of the late chief
justice, John M. Cochrane, and
embraces about two thousand vol
umes, many ot them rare and valua
ble works. Accompanying the books
is a complete list of titles and names
The library is such a one as is es
pecially useful and valuable to a uni
versity. It embraces works of theolo
gy, history, medicine, science, biog
raphy, memoirs and fiction. Among
the books are the memoirs of Na
poleon, which are rare and valuable.
They are of the first edition published
and are found but in few libraries of
the world. The library will be a
perpetual delight to the book lovers
who may attend the university for all
time and is a fitting memorial for a
man who loved books and was a con
noisseur of the best in literature.
Mrs. Cochrane desired very much
that the gift be unheralded but the
gift was of such a nature and concerns
the public so intimately, that it is
presumed she will be content to
sacrifice her wishes to the public
It is a most magnificent gift and one
worthy of the donor and the institu
tion. The books will soon be placed
in the library of the university. In
the opinion of one of the professors
at the university it will add full
$8,000 worth of the choicest works
published, to the university.

GOOD CHRISTMAS TRADE.
Holiday business with the James
town stores has been excellent ail
week, except that Friday, the sudden
cold snap kept some of the country
buyers at home. Every merchant re
ports a larger business than in 1903,
at this heason of the year. The mer
chants of Jamestown have a reputa
tion for being about the closest buyers
of good merchandise of any town of
its size in the state and most of the
stores carry stocks and a quality of
goods that would do credit to a city of
twice the size.
The herd law makes it legal for
stock to run at large from December
1st. to April 1st, and all hay and other
property must be protected with a
legal fence to sustain an action for
damages. A legal fence is made of
substantial posts not farther apart
than thirty-two feet, with substantial
stays between posts and three wi res,
the top one at least forty-two inches
above the general level of the ground.
If you haven't got it this way don't
kick on loose stock.
