Dakota has two laws for the en

are just now of special moment to
farmers. These laws provide for
bounty and tax exemption to
tree
planters. The March number of
that sterling agricultural journal
'"The Northwestern Farmer and
Breeder, of Fargo, contains these
laws and fully explains their work

Washington Letter.
From Our Itejjnlar Correspondent.
WASHINGTON, Mar. 2d, 18S9.
President-elect Harrison's entry
nto Washington was so carefully
irranged that the crowd waiting at
the railway station missed him and
only the denizens of a quiet neigh
borhood saw liitn alight from the
car and enter the carriage that took
him to the Arlington. The crowd
at the hotel numbered several hun
dred.
Mr. Morton arrived tlie next day
and while not so much looked for
by the masses was anxiously awaited
by the politicians, especially by the
Piatt men, for the ante-inaugura
tion fight for the spoils has waxed
very hot. At any time since his
arrival, day or night, Mr. Harrison
could step into the hotel office and
pick a cabinet from the alert states
men there. They are all on hand
waiting to be called.
..
The city is rapidly filling up, al
though the weather bids fair to be a
repetition of that attending Gar
field's inauguration. If so the visi
tors from cities near by will be ma
terially decreased in numbers.
The decorators and carpenters are
working night and day. Anxiety
centers on the inauguration ball
preparations. As it is expected to
be not only a magnificent affair but
to pay all expenses of the inaugura
tion, no pains are spared. 1 have
orders, as the undertaker told Mrs,
Gamp, to be perfectly lavish in the
matter.
Four years ago when Grover
Cleveland took the oath of office
there stood beside him a handsome
man, who although careworn, lookec
fit to live a score of years more.
The Chief Justice who administered
the oath, a short, sturdy man, with
long head and bushy hair, was but
in the prime of maturer manhood
The Vice-President who looked oil,
flushed with victory, appeared al
most youthful. And yet Arthur
Hendricks and Waite have been
pushed off the chess-board of life
A whole generation of public men
have passed away in the last four
years. Friends and enemies, the
just and the unjust, go home to
gether, and sorrow however sincere
is certainly brief. Death is the last
defeat. The conventions at Chica
go and St. Louis last summer would
have been rather lively if Conkling
and Hendricks had been living*
The increased number of visitors
at President Cleveland's receptions
this week indicate the eminently
virtuous desire of the American
tourist to get all he can tor his moil
ev. I saw alwut eight hundred re
ceived Thursday, including many
ladies. Mr. Cleveland retains his
supreme power as a handshaker to
the last. He grasps every hand
firmly and shakes it heartily. He
has never weakened even when re
ceiving 10,000 people on New Year's
Lincoln, as I remember, was often
too worn and worried to perform
the operation with a good grace,
Johnson used to take your banc
tenderly and after absent-mindedly
looking at it, give it back to you, as
being something that seemed satis
factory on inspection and which you
might wish to carefully preserve as
a memento of the occasion. Grant
had a deceptive pump-,handle ir oye
ment that was a careful avoidance
of unnecessary effort. Garfield'
grip was naturally hearty, but he a'
ways exhausted himself in the firs
hour. Everybody remembers Ar
tliur's mode. He hated public re
ceptions as cordially as he dislikec
his enemies. If he had been a
lowed to have his way, there woulc
have been some privacy at the
White House. I can never forget
his bored look at one New Year's re
ception when he held up his right
hand with his left, and allowed the
visitors to touch it. A great fu
ture is for the inventor who will
construct an automatic Presidentia
hand, warranted to deceive the
blissful tourist, or Congress might
put its foot down firmly, and only
allow the great American public to
shake the President's hand twice
year.
I used to know a man in George
town who had shaken hands with
every President since, I believe, the
second Adams. As he grew very
Co to Slocum's for Your Drugs, Paints, Oi8s, Books, Stationery, Etc.
he became frightened at the
prospect that there was a long line
of coming Presidents that he would
not live to shake hands with. He
anted to hand down to his children
deathless record as a handshaker.
So, to hoodwink time, he used to
prowl around the Capitol shaking
the hands of eminent statesmen and
alleged statesmen, in the hope of
grasping the hands of two or three
coming Presidents. He kept an al
phabetical roster of the names but
lis judgment was bad. He had
touched Blaine a dozen times and
made assurance doubly sure with
iayard. But after the Chicago con
dition he discovered that he had
never met Harrison. He never re
covered from the blow. He was too
feeble to go to Indianapolis, and
while waiting patiently about for
Jenny to appear, he died last De
cember.
COUNTY SEAT.
LLENDALE, Dak., Feb. 27th, 18S9
On Friday, Feb. 22, Mrs. S. V.
Saunders, who resided a few miles
west of Ellendak, died after an ill
ness of about two weeks. Mrs.
Saunders leaves two children, one
only a couple of weeks old. Mr
Saunders, the husband, is quite ill
but not dangerously so.
A young son of Joe Martin fell
down from the hay loft of a barn
on Sunday last and broke his arm
near the elbow.
MAURIED—At the Catholic church
on Monday last, Mr. Gallagher and
Lizzie Fay.
The ten dollar prize at the band
dance last Friday night was awarded
to Mrs. E. Morse as the best waltzer
although the contest was close be
tween several ladies.
F. J. Briggs has returned to El
lend-alo for the summer and will re
engage in the occupation of paint
ing.
Mr. II. N. Harding was called to
Wabash county, Minn., the hitter
part of last week on account of the
death of his grandmother. He has
returned on Tuesday this week and
reports very dull times in that sec
tion of the country.
J. D. Wood, Jr., and wife and
G. Newell and wife started fur
Washington on Tuesday to be pres
ent at the inauguration of. President
Harrison.
F. Jerabek will be back from Chi
cagoon Sunday night.
Farmers deliveries of wheat
increasing.
A pleasant social party was en
joyed at the Pacific House last weak
Thursday evening. The occasion
was the birthday of the twin
daughters of Mr. and Mrs. McMil
len. Several fine pieces of silver
ware were presented to the daugli
ters.
More building improvements ar
being projected, and the increase of
taxable property in Ellendale for the
year 1889 will undoubtedly be great
er than any year heretofore.
The brick yard has contracts for
large number of brick.
