Passenger brakeman Conlin was overcome by the heat at Fargo while waiting to go out with his train yes terday and was forced to lay off for the trip. Grand Forks county has raised JplIOO for the famine sufferers in India. Six hoboes were nailed on a passen ger train entering Fargo, and sentenced to ten days in the basule. There was a bolt in the convention in Ward county and there will bte two delegations to the state convention, one headed by Major J. S. Murphy and the other by Editor Wilson of the Minot Reporter. Max Bass, of the Great Northern, who located a colony of Quakers in Towner county, has been up in Cando arranging special rates and accommo dations for all who wish to attend the annual meeting of the Brethren of North Manchester, Ind., May 31st to June Sth.

Judge Amidon is engaged with the case of J. A. Atkinson, and others, against R. Sykes. In April, 180!), Mr. Atkinson and his sons entered into contract with Mr. Sykes for the selling of some lands near Sykeston and west of there and it is for violation of the contract that they sue Mr. Sykes, who is a resident of Manchester, England. Judge Rose of Jamestown appears for the Atkinsons, and Mr. Watson of Ball, Watson & McClay, appear for Mr. Sykes. A Valley City dispatch says: Judge Glaspell claims to have fifty-four of the 108 delegates to the judicial con vention with this county yet to be heard from. The convention will be held here Saturday and the indications are that the delegation, consisting of twenty-five, while uninstructed, will vote for Glaspell. In LaMoure county Lieutenant Governor Devine, who wanted a trading delegation, was turned down by Judge Glaspell's friends. S. E. Ellsworth, who is the Fancher candidate for judge, has prac tically withdrawn in favor of David Bartlett of Griggs county. A good way to stop the carelessness which results in the setting of prairie lires is shown in the following from the Dickey County Leader: Jacob Schmidt, the Russian whom it was alleged set the fire in the hills several weeks ago, was arrested last Wednesday and brought to town to answer to the crim inal charge of unlawfully setting fires. He was arraigned before Justice Geer on Thursday, plead guilty to the charge, and was fined $50. Had not his neighbors interceded in his behalf the penalty would have been much heavier. The same man has been charged with carelessness in setting out fires before. I Jamestown Alert: A hobo was run in by Conductor Dunning this after noon charged with stealing a ride. He was exceedingly wroth over the pro ceedings. The railroad men are look ing after the tourists closely tnis year and believe that it is a good thing to rid the roads and the state of this un desirable class of citizens. Before the anti-brakebeam law was passed giving the conductors power to arrest those found stealing rides the chances were that after being put off a train tbe tramps would cut the air-brake hose cr commit some other act for revenge.

The statement in the Grand Forks Herald that persons who had not yet taken out their second naturalization papers could vote under certain cir cumstances was a repetition of a state ment made by an attorney, who, as well as the Herald, had overlooked the constitutional amendment voted on and carried in 1898 limiting the fran chise to citizens of the United States.

'V .— BISMARCK WEEKLY TRIBUNE FRIDAY, MAY 18 1900. KNOCKED OUT. J. J. Corbett Knocked Out by Jeffries in the Twenty-third Round. Seaside Club, May 11.—Jim Jeffries is still the heavyweight champion pu gilist of the world. He defeated James J. Corbett in the twenty-third round of their fight with a decisive knockout. The finishing blow came as a startling and sudden surprise. Corbett had been making a wonderful battle. His defense was absolutely perfect, and while he was lacking in strength he had more than his own and stood an excellent cnance of winning or going to the limit. He had not been badly punished, and had succeeded in mark ing his man severely. The winning punch was a short left jolt to the jaw. Corbett dropped like a weight and was clear out. Jeffries showed ability to take punishment at any distance, but he was clearly outpointed and at times made to look like a novice. The crowd numbered 8,000. Corbett's defeat fell upon a silent crowd. There were cheers given for him when he arose and left the ring, and he was 'Jshown more consideration than the victor. Corbett is still a factor in the pugilist game. He has regained much of his old time form. The battle \was clean and it is doubtful if there was a single infraction of the rules. The crowd was most orderly. It was a clean knockout that came so quickly that it dazed the thousands of keen, alert, in tent spectators, and left them in doubt as to just how tiie finishing blow was delivered. It was avowed that it was a left hand jolt to the jaw, but Jeffries him self and Referee White who stood at his side, says it was right hand swing. There is credit for the victor and credit for the vanquished, in this cleverest of ring battles. Jeffries must be awarded Ithe laurels of victory, yet his oppon ent is entitled to all honor for his won derful fight. That feature of the con test stands out in relief as the most striking one of the battle. A BOON TO riOTHERS. If any mother in this vicinity has looked for this follow this mothers ad- A BOON TO MOTHERS. Wherever we go and among all classes of people we find children suf fering from weak kidneys. The in telligent mother knows that this is not a habit and looks for a remedy. It is something very hard to relieve and the family physician tells her the child will outgrow it in time. Sometimes they do and sometimes they do not. In the meantime annoyance and em barassment is the result. If anyone knows a remedy it is not an act of charity, is it not a duty to make it pub lic? Should selfishness or pride keep it concealed? Mrs. W. M. Horton of Lincoln avenue, Fergus f'alls, Minn., has used Doan's Kidney Pills in her family and makes the following state ment for the benefit of anxious moth ers and the relief of interesting little children. Mrs. Horton says: "I would recommend anything, I do not care what it was, unless I knew an ar ticle possessed merit and was worthy of endorsation. In regard to Doan's Kidney Pills I have had proof in my family that they are a good remedy. Our little boy for quite along time was troubled evidently with some kidney derangement. The kidney secretions were not healthy in color, and on standing deposited a heavy brick col ored sediment. This had gone on for quite a while, and it naturally gave me some uneasiness." It finally led us to obtain Doan's Kidney Pills from a drug store and use them. The result gave us much pleasure. There are no longer an indications of anything wrong with the boy's kidneys. I con sider such results sufficient to enable me to endorse Doan's Kidney Pills." For sale by all dealers. Price 50 cents mailed by Foster-Milburn Co. Buffalo, N. Y. Sole agents for the U. S.

Editor Tribune: I have noted with special interest ex-Congressman John son's recent effort in behalf of "indi vidual communion cups," especially as I have long oelie^ed it a matter of vital concern. Meanwhile, also, I give the author of "The Sermon on the Mount" credit for tor greater journalistic ability and practical sense than was shown by the Rev. Sheldon in his late so-called newspaper. For example: I am of tne opinion that Jesus with his supe rior and far-reaching understanding of cause and effect would have made prominent in its columns the advertis ing of "individual cups" to be used at his table, among other innovations. Were mary and Martha, today, to en tertain their favorite guest and elder brother at dinner, as of old, possibly inviting some of our distinguished ciergy to be present, I hardly think that they, with their inborn delicacy of sensibilities, would have compelled all of their guests to drink from the one cup or glass, or else go without. It is safe to say that Mary was a model hostess, neat as she was gracious. It is claimed that one of the first symp toms of genuine reform and conversion is shown in a desire for cleanliness of person and surroundings verifying the truth of the old adage: "Cleanliness is next to Godliness." Certainly it has been demonstrated the world over that it is the handmaiden of Christian civilization. But where are the parents of today that would feel it wise and safe to re (urn to the former practice in the pub lic schools of "passing the water," an exercise both morning and afternoon that was one of the real delights of the daily routine in fact a special honor, almost as good as a reward of merit for the favored pupil. All parents, I venture, realize that it would be per nicious and positively dangerous, as often for weeks scarlet fever, diph theria and other contagious diseases menace the health of the scholars, to say nothing of unbrushed teetli and not too clean hands but even so, there was the whole pail of water in which to dip and thus rinse off into the water the little tin cup as it was again and again refilled therefrom. An oppor tunity not granted the half-filled com munion cup. Efforts for the enforcement of var ious sanitary measures are creditably made along all lines and we are wont to judge of the actual refinement and standing of citizens that make up our cities, not by the occasional attractive streets with handsome residences and well kept lawns, but by the back alleys and untidy and often filthy surround ings of quite pretentious homes just as we estimate the degree of good breeding and neatness of a house-wife —not by her elegantly furnished par lors, but by the kitchen, pantry, and back yard. Now if sanitary laws are deemed necessary for the protection of human ity and their enforcement obligatory even to the ordering of rigid quaran tine, I think with thousands of others, that the drinking from one cup—with out as much as replenishing—by scores of persons, more or less, is not only an alarmingly dangerous custom, but one-sacred as the ordinance should be —devoid of every element of cleanlin ess and sanitiveness that we, as an edu cated people strive to inculcate and en force. I see no sensible reason why the same established rules of respect and personal consideration should not obtain at the table of "The King of Kings," as are seen in the most hum ble homes of the day. And I doubt if the bishops, elders or ministers, when out in our prairie homes, or elsewhere, would relish sharing, from time to time, during tli£ meals, their cups of coffee with every member of the family, from the host down to the. last one, very pious though they might be but they would not be asked to do it. To the contrary, I think that state boards of health should enforce the "individual communion cup," wher ever it is not already in use. Increase of population and emigration brings also an increase of all forms of di sease, consumption, scrofula, cancer and catarrh, etc. Listen to the prevailing and sicken ing hawking and spitting, note the filth on the sidewalks as you vainly try to avoid the disgusting results—this alone one would think sufficient. No, Congressman Johnson, of our great state, has sounded the right note, though it were lost, for a time, in the stronger chorus of the cultured Gen eral Conference at Chicago, where he wisely sought to be heard concerning this most important consideration.

Will has completed the planting of trees along the right of way of the Northern Pacific, between Jamestown and Bismarck. The trees were planted along the portions of the road where there are cuts for the pur pose of preventing the snow from drifting on the road and blocking traffic. The trees, when grown to a height sufficient to prevent snow from drifting, will &ke the place of the board snow fences which have been so expensive to the road on ac count of the same having at various times and places mysteriously disap peared. The trees will also improve the appearance of scenery along the line. Cottonwood, willow and box elder cuttings we're planted. Eleven rows six feet apart were planted making "the width of the surface planted feet. The cuttings placed four feet distant from each other in the other direction. The distance between each of the trees will make it easy to cultivate between the same and keep the weeds from growing. Mr. Will has contracted to keep the trees in a growing condition. The weather has not yet been as favorable of late to tree planting as it might have been and there will probably be some of the trees fail to grow unless rain comes soon. Quite a force of men have been em ployed in the work and the cost will amount to a considerable amount. "DeWitt's Little Early Risers are the finest pills I ever used."—D. J. Moore, .uillbrook, Ala.

Fire This Morning Destroys Scott McLean's Home—Contents a Total Loss. About o'clock Monday morning fire was discovered in the roof of Scott McLean's house on upper Seventh sreet. The lire was first seen by Farmer Wallace, night, watchman at the capitol. It is supposed to have started from the chimney on the main building in the garret and owing to a very strong west wind the flames were soon fanned into fury. Practically nothing was saved from the house and the family barely saved enough cloth ing with which to dress themselves The house was entirely gutterl and the stable, which is siuiate directly east of the house, was set afire by burning shingles from the house, and quickly destroyed. A great deal of trouble was experienced in getting the horses out of the stao.e, but by leading them one at a time to the adjacent block they were kept from re-entering the burn ing stable. Scott has some fine horses and was lucky in saving them. The buildings and contents are covered by insurance and are practically a total loss.

Reported Prospect of New Line from Fargo to Dickey, and Branches. A Fargo report says: Recent changes which have been made in the plans of the Northern Pacific exten sion building in North Dakota would indicate that Fargo is to secure another important addition to its railroad sys tem. For several weeks work has been progressing on the extension which the company is to build from 'Casselton, through Cass, Barnes and LaMoure counties to Dickey. Work has been progressing on the extension just west of Casselton for the time being and it is stated on good authority that an im portant change is liable to be an nounced at any time. The- story now current is to the effect that the North ern Pacific is negotiating with the Great'Northern for the purchase of the two stul) lines running east and west from Addison. Should ...e Northern Pacific secure these short lines a road will lie run from the main line at Hor ace to the eastern terminal of the stub line and from Chaffee west to the pro posed new line near Peterson, thus giving the Northern Pacific a line from Fargo to Dickey by way of Horace, Chaffee and the towns along the line as now surveyed. This would be an important addition to the railroad con nections of Fargo, and would give the company an almost direct line through one of the most fertile sections of the state. It is also stated on excellent author ity that the Northern Pacific will build a line from Sheyenne, in Eddy county, southeast through the county of Mc Henry, thus connecting the Southern line with the Jamestown & Northern. The last named extension would be about 24 miles long and would prove a paying line for the company's sys tem of railroads in the state. A party of ten surveyors left Fargo for Shey enne and the work of surveying the proposed extension is now in progress. Representative Littlefield of Maine won his fame in his native state by his fight against the Grand Trunk railroad when he was attorney general. The road would not pay its taxes and Mr. Littlefield fought the case through the supreme court and won, the amount involved being $300,000 from the Grand Trunk and $1,000,000 from other roads. "After suffering from piles for fifteen years I was cured by using two boxes of DeWitt's Witch Hazel Salve," writes W. J. Baxter, North Brook, N. C. It heals everything. Beware of counter feits. E.
