ANDY CAME CLOSE.
Census Supervisor A. H. Laughlln: Last January made an estimate from .a table of percentages, of the popula tion of the United States, and an nounced .it as 7(5,400,000. Early In June, when the enumeration of the state was in progress, I estimated the population of the state at 320,000. My •official figures, .computed from the re turns, were 319,042. Several districts in the northern part of the state, where -there was a great rush of immigration :ln the spring, were so large that the enumerators could not canvass them in June and July, hence a good many settlers had returned overland by team to Iowa, douth Dakota and other states to secure crops planted in their former homes, and then return to this state next spring, so were on the road when the enumerators called, and "were not credited here or elsewhere. A SIMPLE QUESTION. The Reader is Requested to Honestly .Answer This. Are Hpt statements from representa •tive citizens of Grand Porks more con 'vincing than the doubtful utterances of people living everywhere else in :the union? Read this: Mr. A. L. Failor of 1108 Dakota ave nue, Grand Forks, N. D., carpenter, says: "I know just exactly what a •lame back, backache or whatever else you may term it, means, because I suffered from it for years. I was com pelled to give up printing on account of it for I could not endure the result of long standing at the case. The pain was always iii the same place, in and around the kidneys and across the Joins. Often I was forced to place my hands on my back and press it, too, for the slight assistance it afforded me and if I stooped' it was -with difficulty I could straighten. Al though I tried many different reme dies, all recommended for my trouble, until I procured Doan's Kidney Pills at Trepanier & Co.'s drug store I was unable to find anything upon which I could depend. I broke an ankle and while lying still I found Doan's Kid ney Pills .just the thing to keep my kidneys from becoming sluggish.

Finally the scientific student has discovered a certain remedy for dand ruff. When it first became known tiha't dandruff is the result of a germ or parasite that digs into the scalp, and" saps the vitality of hair at the root, causing falling hair and baldness, biologists set to work to discover some preparation that will kill that germ. After a year's labor in one laboratory, the dandruff germ destroy er was discovered and it is now em bodied in Newbro's Herplcide, which besides curing ualdness, and thinning hair speedily and permanently eradi cates dandruff.

Among the indictments returned by the federal grand jury last'week were two against Mrs. Martha Arndt and Miss Ida Arndt, mother and daughter, of Cooperstown, so it is said. The in dictment charges them with using cancelled postage stamps a second time. The inspectors have had con siderable trouble in the last few months over the same practice. The number of cancelled stamps used in North Dakota contrary to law is sur prising, and the department figures that the use of such stamps is merely on account of pecuniary gain. The decision has been reached now that all such cases will be prosecuted. EDITOR'S AWFUL PLiviHT. F. M. Higgins, editor Seneca, (Ills.)

D., Nov. 12.—The repub licans had a regular landslide in Ran som county on Tuesday, and the offi cial completed figures give the McKin ley electors 922 votes, while the Bryan electors only figure up 492, making a republican majority of no less than 430, which is fully double what the party managers estimated before the election and again of over 200 from the vote cast in 1890. The total vote this year is, however, only 23 more than was cast four years ago, showing that the large republican gain is most ly derived from the independent and democratic party. In the county offices there is, too, a big change. Two years ago the fu slonists elected five, while this year W. M. Jones, auditor, is the only fu sionist elected. The present county treasurer, W. F. Grange, was defeated by the republican candidate by. the small majority of four.

Y., says: "Our little son, 5 years old has always been subject to croup, and so bad nave the attacks been that we have feared many times that he would die.

Gramd Forks Herald: Mrs. Holley of Bismarck, state agent for the pre vention of cruelty to animals, has been in the city for some days on her offi cial work. In addition to the work pertaining directly to the prevention of immediate and gross cruelty to dumb animals, Mrs. Holley has ad dressed the children of the city schools, 2,000 in number on the subject of kindness and cruelty, having previous ly addressed the forty teachers at the high school in a body, and both teach ers and pupils displayed the greatest interest. Mrs. Holley believes that a great work is to he wrought among the chil dren in the way of cultivating their finer sensibilities through the medium of dumb creatures. She believes that the child who is taught to think about and respect the rights which even the smallest insect possesses to freedom from the infliction of needless pain will also entertain a greater respect for the rights and feelings of other persons. She points out that there are few if any cases on record of per sons committing great crimes after having been taught in their youth to treat with kindness the members of the animal kingdom.

Napoleon Homestead: Medina is fast becoming quite a metropolitan town, and is n.ow putting on airs by building a $1,500 school house for which D. E. Hughes of Jamestown has the con tract, and has a force of six men at work on the structure. A new black smith shop was started in the course of erection the day we were there. The town already boasts a bank, lum 'ber yard, hotel, livery barn, four stores and a land office—of which Mr. Dwyer is the general manager. There is a fine country surrounding Medina and the place seems to have a very bright future. Three years ago when Mr. Dwyer located there the place was not even a telegraph station and it is altogether due to Mr. Dwver's efforts and energy that the place is anything more than a siding on the N. P. yet. A genuine Indian chief, old Meckin ock, for whom that North Dakota town was named, lives up in Roseau county, and he recently located his tepee- near Badger, where he hunts skunks and bear and his squaw and papoose dig snake root.
