Peter Wittmayer, Jr.. a well known old- timer of McPherson county, returned home the forepart of last week, after visiting with his sons, daughters-in-law and the little Wittmayers of the third generation. The old gentleman recently sold his farm near Eureka. The statutory publication an nouncing the founding of the Tem pelton State Bank at Larvik appears in this issue of the Record. The new bank has a large and responsible list of stockholders. The little town is situated in a good farming coun try and is surrounded by a prosper ous class of farmers. John Flaherty writes to the editor a letter from which the following is an extract: "Please change the ad dress on my paper to read, 'Pasade na,Cal., Station "A." This is sure ly a beautiful country in which to live, and it has a great future but, at the same Jtime, I long to be back in North Dakota, if only for a visit. 1 am doing well here and guess that this state will be my home for some years to come." They say that County Gudg Car ley really does carry out the provis ions of the new anti-miscegenation law by asking the searchers after connubial bliss whether either has any Senegambian blood in his or her veins. Where the he party to the wedding stunt is big and husky, the boys at the court-house say that the Gudg goes into the clerk of court's room, next to his'n, locks the door and yells through the key-hole: "Got any nigger blud in yer veins?" Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Honstain, for merly of Linton, but now of Mon dak, Montana, arrved by Monday's N. P. train to visit a few days with their relatives. They will then go to Minnesota to visit relatives. "Al" likes the country very well where he is now living, but says that the incoming of agricultural settlers has pushed the stock running on free ranges to points farther west. A good many of the old-timers there who formerly depended entirely on stock are fanning. Many of the old-timers in Linton were surprised last Saturday to re ceive a vist from H. A. Archam bault, an early settler in Emmons county,who in the olden time kept a store at Emmonsburg, and who also ran a toll-bridge at that point, at or near where the first iron bridge in the county was built. "Shambo," as his friends call him for short, bears his years well. His former tawny locks are now gray, as might be expected when they belong to a man well along in the seventies, and his flowing gray beard reminds one of the pictures he has seen of Moses. The Record received a wel come call from the old patriarch, who was always a kind and hospit able man to those who treated him right, and who never went back on a friend during his many years' residence in this county. The old gentleman is stout and hearty even as he was on the day a score of years ago when he fed the editor and a couple of dozen other Emmon sonians on the flesh of the purp "unbeknownst" to his guests. There was quite a crowd of Em mons county people in Bismarck last Sunday to witness two games of base ball between the Hazelton and the Company "A" teams, and, inci dentally, to see a foot-race. The first game was in the afternoon, and was won by the Bismarckers, owing to certain of the Hazelton players losing their grip in the first inning, the score standing (5 to 2. In this game McDougal pitched for Hazel ton and Johnson for the Bismarck ers. "Winch" Hatzer caught for Hazelton in both games, and Ed wards for Bismarck did likewise. My ron Hutchinson and Frank Bryant umpired this game. After the game there was a foot-race between Paul Kurtz of Hazelton and a Bismarcker named Smith, the latter being a head or so taller than the former. The Hazelton lad, however,won with ease, and no one knows how much faster this so far unbeaten young ster could have covered the ground had it been necessary. After sup per the second game took place, and in this the Hazeltonites won by 7 to 3. Vandever pitched for Bismarck in this game and Doty for Hazelton. Features of the game were the pitching of Doty, the catching of W. Batzer, and the shortstop work of Frank Koll. Frank made five hits and walked once out of six times up. Myron Hutchinson and Joe Stember were umpires in the second game. The day was very warm, and, as the Bismarckers have no roof to ther grand-stand, there was no protection from the sun's rays. As there is no fence around the ball grounds, a large proportion of those in attendance "crawled under the canvas." The metropolis of the Slope should have a grand-stand built for it by the state—same as the street railway and things like that. y. erence was made in last as having surprised ith h- c°ming( in company s!'ster' a" *o the way from anm Visit them The likp.'

Josias Bircher, of Aberdeen, has purchased an interest in the Sher wood meat-market. He arrival last Monday and took charge. Elmer Fogel is absent from town a good share of the time these days, attending to his various building contracts. He finds it pretty hard to get sufficient help at present, caused by the activity in the harvest fields. Everybody out of town is making hay or harvesting- and visitors to Linton are few and far between which said annual condition makes the life of a country-newspaper chap who seeketh items anything but a happy one. A considerable number of Linton people went to Strasburg Sunday to see a proposed game of base ball be tween the Strasburg and the Fort Yates Indian teams. But. for some unknown reason, the Yates boys did not appear. Do you want a home? If so. see me.

One of the interesting events of the trip, to the older gentleman, will be a meeting with his brother, whom he has not seen for many years. A. A. Ludwigs, of Artas, S. 1)., has purchased from A. W. Sims his stock in the Linton State Bank, and also his residence property on north Broadway. Mr. Sims and family will, later in the year, take up then residence in Spokane. Mr. Ludwigs will have his headquarters at the bank, and will bring his family here to reside. Rain is getting to be such a fre quent and common thing in these parts that it is hardly interesting enough to report. There has been more of it since our last issue. Ear ly grain is being harvested. The soil is so moist that none of the crops but the late grain and flax needs any more of it. The only fly in the ointment is that there has been a considerable fall in the price of wheat during the past ten days but the best authorities say that the con dition of the world's stock of grains and the yields and prospective yields of the grain-producing coun tries do not indicate a very low price.

VINCENT MILLER, (jly-15-29) Strasburg, N. I). Qoo'd Tim* to Go. General Joseph E. Johnston, the Confederate commander, used to re late that In the hottest part of one of the early battles of the civil war he felt hla coattalls pulled. Turning about, he recognlied a young man who bad been employed In his tobacco factory previous to enlistment. "Why are you not In your place fight ing?" the general demanded angrily. "Why, I just wanted to tell you that If you don't mind will take my day off today!" To 8loop Like a Top. To "sleep like a top" has probably a very different origin from that whlcb appears. "Top" Is thought to be a cor ruption of the French taupe, or mole. This Interpretation Is far more In ac cordance with the Idea usually con veyed—that of a prolonged, undisturb ed sleep like that of a mole In winter ruther than the short, enduring so called "sleep" of a top when It re volves on Its axis with a gentle, bum ming sound.

Not the Kind Ho Wanted Professed politicians who have re duced public office to an exact science find the Independent voter a sud stum bling block, a fact which Is amusingly disclosed by a story found In the llfo of tlie late George Monro (irant, tho eminent Canadian educator and clergy man. Toward tho end of Sir John Macdon aid's life he and Principal (Jrant, thon the head of Queen's college, met at a dinner at the bouse of tho premier's brother-in-law, l'rofeaaor Williamson. "How I wish," the premier said to the principal, "that you would be a steady friend of mine." "My dear Sir John," the principal replied, "I have alwaya supported you when you were right." The premier's eyes twinkled, and he laid bis hand upon the shoulder of the principal. "My dear man," said he, "I have no use for that species of friendship!" Greatness Not Free From Shame. The transcendent power and fame with which great genius has at differ ent periods endowed various meu do not always Insure them from nfter misery and shame. This was striking ly exemplified In the cases of the four greatest of military conquerors—Alex ander, Hannibal, Caesar and Napoleon.

Is there any compensation In money for a starved, stunted, dwarfed mind? Can lands and houses, stocks and bonds, pay a man for living a narrow, rutty, sordid life? How much money would match the wealth of a trained mind, of unfolded possibilities? Is the capacity for the appreciation of the meaning of life, of the lessons of civi lization, worth no more than one's bread and butter and roof? Can any one conceive of greater possessions than an Intellect well trained and dis ciplined, than a broad, deep, full orbed mind responsive to all beauty, all good?—Orison Swett Marden In Suc cess Magazine. The Dream of tho Kay. Some small article had been lost—I forget now what let us say key -be longing to one of two sisters who wero traveling together. It could nowhere be found. But one night one of tho sisters dreamed that she saw the key In the pocket of her traveling bag. She told tills dream ou waking to the oilier. "And have you looked In the pocket?" the slater asked. "No, I have not," said she, "for the very good reuson that there Is no pocket In my travel lng bag." "Well," suld tlie other, "there Is a pocket In mine. I will Just have a look there ou the chance." And there the key was found. Tho Infer ence is that the dreamer had seen with the eye of sense, though not with the eye of observation, the key put Into the poc-ket. Even when the key was so found she bad no recollection of seeing It placed there, but the brain had unconsciously recorded the sensu Hon. In course of sleep it had stum bled on that record, and by good luck the sleeper on awaking chanced to re member the mental operation tliut had taken place during sleep. It Is a sin gular and almost alarming reflection that our brains are stored with count less such records of which we know nothing nor ever shall know unless the association of Ideas or some peculiar mental state brings them to our no tice.—Westminster Gazette.
