THE RED RIVER COUNTRY
TIP
Having heard to much about the
Red River of tiie North one would
imagine it equal to the Jameo the
York or the St JoIuir but it la no
greater in appearance than the Ken
tucky River It Is a narrow shallow
quiet Mream that flows North through
a country to level that you can scarce
ly tell which way the river runs The
botlomti are five to twenty miles wide
on each side of the river are ten to
forty miles across and break up into
a beautifully undulating country that
extends hundreds of miles away The
river and its tributaries lie principally
in Minnesota and Dakota and drain
an area of 30000 square miles or
20000000 acres
North Minnesota and North Dakota
are the most beautiful portions of those
two countries The eastern portion of
Minnesota n bounds witlt pine timber
but west of that timber is exceedingly
scarce In fact it is found ouly along
tlie rivers and around the lakes The
vast bottoms of Red River are level
us a parlor flour but not swampy
Anywhere ten thousand acres can be
staked off and a depression oDe foot
lower than the general level can not
be found Grass grows everywhere
and grows naturally Gullies and un
sightly bare places are not known
Corn will not grow because tile season
is on short Wheat is tlie principal
crop Wheat is to that country what
cotton is to Georgiaoranges to Florida
tomatoes to Maryland aud sugar to
Louiann
The farmer lian a wonderfully easy
time He tas no oorn to plant thin
plow cut shuck shell c and that
relieves him of half his hard work
He has 110 fences to build briars to cut
stumps to pull or rocks to remove
He rides to plow rides to sow rides to
reap and to mow He threshes his
wheat without stacking and hauls to
the railroad without housing Every
station has its elevator or several ol
them
If a man has stock he fences off a
small pasture in which to keep tbem
But be doesnt need any stack more
than a few cows and horse
The country Is filling up rapidly
railroadt are Increasing at an astonish
ing rate Tlie St Paul Minneapolis
aud Manitoba system has this ear built
seven hundred mjles of road It now
has two thousand miles in Minneso
ta and Dakota and several hundred in
Montana I traveleildnwn and up the
Red River and away Wet into Mon
tana besides making other journeys
At every station there were evidences
of new comers An air of thrift per
vades tlie entire country There are
no evidences of distitution aud none
of idleness
One of the finest countries I ever
saw was in tlie Devils Lake region
Tlie lake is a grand body of salt water
sixty or seventy miles long and five
to twenty broad It U one of the mos t
beautiful bodies of water in tlie world
Surrounded with trees it tins a flue
range of limbered tnouiitnins on the
south side aud all around a graud
country undulating and rich The
town of Devils Lake Is situated 011
north side and is a delightful place of
several thousand people One of the
best equipped aud most prosperous
looking newspaper offices I have ever
seen in a town of the size is the Devils
Lake Inter Ocean On the scutli side
is he town of Miunewaukon and
two steamers one rather large ply be
tween the towns Fort Totton is also
south of the Lake Tlie Indians Lave
a tradition that in the long azo two
hostile tribes engaged in battle on the
Lake in their bark canoes During
tlie battle the Devil came up out of
the water and scooped them all under
They then called the Lsike Miunewau
kon which means Devil water hence
the name Devils Lake I visited lakes
Miunetonka Pewuukfie and Ocono
mowoc along the way and think
Devils Lake much more attractive
than any of the others
Among the residents of Devils Lake
I found Mr William Stuart and his
son Mr George Stuart both formerly
of Clark county Ky The senior Stu
art was n brother to the late S G
Stuart Sheriir of Clark They uro
charmed with Dakota and expect
never to return to Kentucky George
Stuart weighed one hundred and forty
pounds when lie went to Dakota three
years ago and now weighs two hun
dred and twenty
At Argyle in north Minnesota I
saw tlie farm of Mr Ramsey It con
tains thirty thousand acres and is ail
in wheat Mr Ramsey is a son of tlie
Earl of Dalhauseii or some such n
name aud married Arei Garrison of
New York a of
Capt James Estill the famous pioneer
of Madison county Ky Mr Ramsey
has an older brother who is u Lord and
member of Parliament but has no chil
drenaud mine day I shall expect to see
of Madifon
county a Lord and member of Parlia
ment
The Ryon farm farther up the river
contains forty thousand acres Mr
Ryan lives In St Paul and looks
strikingly like Mr Ben Luugford of
Cluys Ferry
Away out at Fort Bufbrd 1500
miles from Richmond I met a Mr
Crofton son of the commander of the
post When I told him I was from
Kentucky lie asked what place and
when I said Richmond ho instantly
asked do you know Wild Bill
Whats Ids other name I asked
Phelps he said I knew him out
east at Andover College I knew he
must have meant our George and In
formed him accordingly
I travelled sixteen hundred miles in
Minnesota and Dakota and I never
found t ucli agreeable railroad men on
any system as those of the St Paul
Minneapolis and Manitoba road From
General Passenger Agent C H War
ren and his chief clerk Mr W H
Connor on down they are a royal lot
Theres Mr W D Scott conductor be
tween Bnriiesville and St Vincent a
hundred miles or more He aswered
all the thousand aud one questions I
asked aud that fn the most intelligent
and pleasant way and turned me over
to the Mauitoba conductor with a wish
that he could carry me on to Winnipeg
And theres Mr T E Driscoh whos
run Is between the growing elect
town of
Crookston Minn and the far westeru
wooden town of Minot In the Mouse
River country Drixcoli would Pit up
every night In the week to accommo
date a friend and not consider it any
hardship I should not forget Mr
Birkheim who runs between Liri
more aud Castleton He is a walking
encyclopedia of Dakota information
and imparls it with grace and patience
Cold Yts The thermometer
doesnt hesitate to creep down into the
thirties and forties ami sometimes the
fifiiej below zero But it Is a dry quiet
cold When it freezes up in Novem
ber it remains dry and frozen all win
ter Tiiere is no mud and slush and
rain and there are no sudden changes
Heavier boots are worn in Kentucky
than in Dakota Besides that a man
has nothing to do but stay in the house
TheAun rises about S oclock and
sets about 9 oclock In June but iu
December it gets even by rising at 0
and setting at 3 The northern boun
dary of Dakota and Minnesota is 49
degrees North Latitude or 12 degress
north of Richmond Heavy fur coats
are much worn In winter
I met an accommodating gentleman
at Fort Buford I refer to Mr O W
Hedderich the Post Trader He loan
ed me his Winchester rifle and gave
me all the cartridges I wanted I
walked fourteen miles and killed a
raven sixty yards oft baud but It wa3
the only respectable shot I made that
day Game is exceedingly scarce I
saw a dress parade and heard the ex
cellent military baud at the fort Fort
Buford is on the upper Missouri River
nt the mouth of the famous Yellow
stone and on the line between Dakota
and Montana
Mr A CSine chipped Wednesday a
poplur tree that he bought from Mr

MASSACHUSETTS REPUBLICANS AND

In tlie same platform in which the
Republicans of Massachusetts recom
mend a repeal of the internal tax on
whisky they resolve in favor of sub
mitting ah amendment to prohibit the
manufacturer and sale of alcoholic
liquors While they are devoted to
the cause of temperance and tiie en
couragement of all other virtues they
would rather drench Massachusetts
with cheap whisky than permit any

AN EXPERIMENT WITH A GUILLO
TINED HEAD
Science
The superstition that human beings
should sleep with their heads to the
Nortli Is believed by the French to
have for its foundation a scientific fact
They affirm that each human system
Is in itself an electric buttery the head
being one of the electrodes the feet
tlie other Their proof was discovered
from experiments which the Academy
of Sciences was allowed to make on
the body of a man who was guillotined
This was taken tlie moment it fell and
placed upon a pivot free to move as it
might The head part nfter a little
vacillation turned to the Nortli ami
the body then remained stationary It
was turned half way round by one of
the professors and again the head end
of the trunk moved slowly to the car
dinal point due Nortli the same re
sults being repeated uutil tlie final ces
sation of orgauiu movement
PRESIDENT CLEVELAND
Philadelphia Enquirer Rep
Tlie visit of the President of the
United States to Philadelphia revealrd
to those of his fellow citizens with
whom lie was brought into personal
contact a different man from the one
they knew from representation The
portraits of him with which tliev were
familiar whether drawn by pen or
pencil did not denote him truly There
are line noble lines of intellectuality
and feeling in his face which tlie por
traits have not given he has charac
teristics of the head ami heart which
have not been shown by the portraits
Alter seeing this mentally strong
bright man it is folly to talk of his
having achieved his present high imsi
tion by mere accident chance or luck
He achieved it by the o esion mid
use of remarkable abilities and his
thought speech manner appearance
all go to prove it Hs popularity in
Philadelphia io day is a thousand
greater than it was a week ago His
prunes are in the nruths of thoae orj
wi t cenwire of those opposed to Itim
politically whose respect and eonfl 1
deuce lie won during his brief visit
iiere by the fine dignity ami oiHirteny
of his manner his strong fibrous in
telligence his evident sincerity of jitr
iHe and p ttiiotic spirit In view of
his personal popularity it will lie well
for tboe u ho are to select a leader to
oppose him iu the Presidential cam
paign to make 110 mistake They
should understand wlnt is to thoe
who havo seen Mr Cleveland the
most obvioiH truth that lie will ben
candidate hard to lieat It will be
best to recognize that fact early so
that opportunity may be taken advan
tage of to shrewdly select his Republi
can opponent To be forewarned iu
this case is to be forearmed
