John Flaherty writes to the editor

They say that County Gudg Car

wedding stunt is big and husky, the
boys at the court-house say that the

Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Honstain, for

their relatives. They will then go

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

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

Tho Greatest Wealth.
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
