Recollections of Old Times In the Early Days of Missouri Steam boating.1 The Chicago Chronicle says: It was in the summer of 1872 when the old Kountz line steamer Peninah, Capt. Tom Mariner, left the terminus of the railroad at Yankton, laden with through freight for Fort Benton, and a grading outfit and crew, under Con tractor W. A. Burleigh, then, a dele gate In congress from Dakota territory, to work upon the Northern Pacific grade east from the Missouri river, from where Bismarck is now located. The Peninah had been obliged to la)' up for repairs under a bluff a few miles above Standing Rock agency for a couple of days. About noon of a day in the latter part of May the passen gers lounging about the deck of the boat heard a noise resembling the rum bling of distant thunder. Every man instinctively sought shelter. "Indians!" was whispered through out the ship, and even the old timers grew pale as they realized what a war party of this size meant for them. The noise came .closer and closer and re solved Jltself into a wild roar, and then hundreds of buffalo came tearing over the bluff at a mad pace, falling into the water like sheep.. The landing place of the Peninah was close under the bluff, with scarcely more than a dozen feet intervening, and a majority of the animals plunged over the boat into the river. Some fell on the deck nnd many lay along the narrow bank, maimed and bleeding from broken legs or internal Injuries. Still they came tumbling over the bluff. The sandbars were covered with the big, shaggy animals, who be gan to climb up the opposite bank, where they stood exhausted. It was nearly aft hour before the last of the herd had plunged over the bluff. Then the deck hands set. about provid ing the boat with fresli meat nnd them selves with buffalo hides, which they sold at a good figure. When the Pen inah pulled out next day the buffalos were seen spreading out over the hills on the eastern side of the river. An average estimate placed the number of buffaloes in this stampede at 7.000. It may have been the same herd or another one of similar size that com pelled the steamer Miner to tie up. to the bank for two hours just below Fort Buford. This was in the fall of 187-1. and while there was no precipice at this point to jump from, the buffaloes were swimming the river by thous ands. The Miner was in midstream coming down the river like a race horse, when she ran into the herd, and being fearful of an accident the cap tain turned her shoreward and tied her up, while the crew laid in a good sup ply of fresh meat. Some idea of tlio vast herds that ranged that country may be gleaned from the fact that on pne trip down the river about that time the entire cargo of the steamer Gen. Meade was made up of dried buffalo tongues and hides. From 1877 to 1879 were the palmy days of stcamboating on the upper Missouri, no less than sixty-five boats being engaged in the service at that time, but during these years much business was gathered at Bismarck, the Northern Paciiic having reached the Missouri. The Kountz line, owned by Commodore Kountz of Pittsburg, operated the queerest craft that ever ploughed the waters of the Big Muddy. Everybody along the river got to know the long, low, single smokestack, pirat ical-looking steamers. They would come wheezing up the river like a great monster in the last stages of asthmatic convulsions, and it seemed to require the attention of the entire crew to keep her boilers supplied with steam to breast tiie current. They were slow, and to cover the distance between Pittsburg and Fort Benton in a single season they were obliged to run during the night, and it was said of them that they invariably ar rived at the landings along the river in the dead of night, when all other vessels were tied up. The Durfee & Peck Line, the Benton Line nnd the Missouri River Transportation Com pany were all first class. The latter company put on two side-wheelers in 1876—the Montana and the Dakota. They proved an expensive luxury, one being wrecked by a cyclone and the other going to pieces against a bridge pier at Kansas City. TWINE PLANT. Board of Trustees of the Penitentiary Will Probably Take Up the Matter Soon. The old board of trustees of the state penitentiary will hold their last meet ing on April 3. The new board will meet and organize on the following day and one of the first "iatters taken up by the board will probably be that of the erection of the twine plant pro vided for at the last session of the legislature. The board' will probably discuss the matter carefully and seek information regarding the materials and buildings required and take steps to provide them. It is understood that the matter of securing funds through the certificates will be easily adjusted, and that the state will be able to sell them as soon as the certi ficates are formally issued. The health record of the pen the past winter has been good. About three-fourths of the inmates.have had the grippe, but there have been no deaths. Villers of Stutsman county, sentenced for the murder of Tromer, was for a time one of the very sick men at the Institution but is now im proving and able to be out when the weather is fine.' The new barn to replace the one burned last fall is well under way and will one of the finest In the state, both in the way of construction and con venience. It is being bullded of brick and stone, shaped, and will have room for forty horses in all, as well as a spacious wagon room and imple ment storehouse. There will be room for forty horses in the born, the loft will store 100 tons of hay and there will also be a loft for granary pur poses. It is expected the barn will be completed about the first of May. The brick used are from the peniten tiary yards.' Last fall the prisoners at the pen under the direction of the warden, hauled over a million brick that were used in the erection of new buildings after the fire. In the past two years the penitentiary yards have sold $7,000 to $8,000 worth of brick, in addition to furnishing brick for the warden's residence* tunnels, the barn, etc., a matter of probably half a mil lion brick altogether. AGAIN THE SOO. Reported That the Officers of the Road Think Favorably of Ex tending. A report from Minneapolis states that the officials of the Soo road think favorably of the extension of the line from Braddock to Bismarck and on through the slope country up to Wash burn. The representations of the Bismarck committee have been favor ably received, and the road believes there is a possibility of developing a good traffic in coal from the rich mines and in tapping the stock country on the west side of the river, as well as opening up what promises to Itecome one of the richest farming and stock countries in the state. It is also stated that the Soo the coming summer may extend its line into Fargo.

It is true that many women are compelled to look forward to times when they are unable to attend to social or business duties. Their appearance plainly in dicates their condition and they are reluctant to be seen, even by their friends. Read what a business woman says to such sufferers: Mrs. C. W. Mansfield, of58 Farrar St., Detroit, Mich., says: "A complication of female ailments kept me awake nights and wore me out.
