torn OAIES REPUBLICAN Official Paper of City ami County. OA.KE3, N. D., JUNE 27,1890. THE CITY. R. H. Smith, Land Agent of the Soo R'y, was in the cily Tuesday. Prof. Eaton and wife, of Ludden, were in the city Monday evening. Remember the photographer of Oukes will warrant you good work. Mr. C. A. Baker and family re turned from Minneapolis, Tuesday morning. There is already more grass upon the prairie than there was at any time last year. W. H. Ellis, W. F. Canfield and D. A. Shuter went to Wnhpeton Monday night over the Soo. 0. M. Botsford and J. E. Spurl ing are still on the Reservation west of Pierre and report a splendid time. W. T. Davis sold his flock of about 400 sheep to II. II. Kenksl, who last week disposed of them in smaller lots to different parties. Why don't the Oakes nine get a move on themselves and go to La Moure the 4th and capture the prize of §25.00? You can do it, boys, if you get out and practice. Edgeley Mail: M. L. Blanco is so well pleased with the results of his first year's trial of sheep that he will add 500 or 600 ewes this fall and go into the sheep industry on a large scale. Mr. E. Pickard writes from East Chicago that he has plenty of work at the carpenter trade, and thinks there will be employment the year round. He likes the place and says everything there is flourishing. THE Harlem Courier has extended (in imagination) the Milnor branch or the Northern Pacific to Oiikes and located the county seat of Sar gent comity at tile town to be iviii'i'e tliK- N.

Now grade up the crossings and farmers will have lio eause to complain when they .haul in their big loads of wheat this fall. are indebted to Congressman Hansbrough for a copy of his able speech on the tariff and also for a cojpy of McKinley's great speech in support of his tariff bill. We also acknowledge the receipt of various public documents from Senators Pierce and Casey. The sale of the (ull'iiiim luort* gaged-.property oucum-d it 2 o'clock Saturday afternoon, with J. M. Reynolds auctioneer. The horse brought $100, the two-year-old heifers about $12 each and the mower $30, the cow awd calf sell idg for $19. The owner of the notes just about came out whole. A large number ol railroad grad ers were here the latter part of last .•-.i.S week and shipped their teams and ou^t, Sunday, on a special t'A.Vii PinwMA ...I. At 'W, Ft. .Pierre, where they will begin [,bn Northwestern extension. report more lailroading this year than for a number of years before. Jamestown Alert: L. T. Hamil ton left Saturday for Montana to invest some $25,000 in sheep. About 8,000 linvo already been pur chased and will be shipped over the Great Northern road from Great Falls to Minot, and driven from that point to Jamestown, where they will be sold to furmers in small lots. The recent rains have decided Lloyd & Hamilton to still further invest in sheep, and on additional ot will be purchased and shipped in oyer the Northern Pacific. now Women Can Dress Well. There is no reason in the world why anybody jliould have an unbecoming costume this season. In fabrics and in colors all sorts and conditions of women are catered to, and all tones, from the faintest to the deepest, are deftly wrought out so that the particular shade that the wise woman finds becoming to her can be gotten without any trouble. There are plain colors for a woman who likes stuffs that are not conspicuous. There are spots big and littlo, plaids bias and straight and stripes of all widths and kinds. Be a little careful in choos ing your colors, and remember that be cause somebody tells you how well you look in a costume of navy bluo you must not conclude that every blue shade is suited to you, for that extremely trying but very bountiful one known as army makes the average woman's complexion look as yellow as a lqmon. Because scarlet makes your hair look warmer aiid gives a deeper color to your eyes, it does not follow that magenta is suited to you. General rules do not ap ply to women who are nothing if not in dividual. Somebody says that small bonnets are universally becoming, and you, whose face is rather braid, whose nose is a bit retrousse, put ono on and believe you look well. A bonnet, more than anything else, needs to be tried on, and although one may generalize and say bonnets are ladylike it can no more bo asserted that bonnets are always be coming than it could be that all women are good figures. So just think out things be.fore you choose them.—Mrs. Mallon in Ladies' Home Journal. An Almost Forgotten ailnstrel, I meet Billy Birch, the old time min strel, on IJroialway nearly every after noon. Billy's face has been seen "on the end" by nearly every theatre goer in the country. He hangs around the Bijou theatre now most of these sunny days, enjoying the society of a newer gene ration. Billy is portly, white haired and lame. He says ono of his confounded legs seems to be older than the other. It is tho one he used to bang the tam bourine on while Charley Backus held up the other wing of the circle. Birch is chuck full of stories of the stage and the road—stories that ho tells with great gusto. What a story of life such a man could tell if ho could use a pen as well as he can use his tongue. Birch and Backus wero tho two most popular end men who ever traveled. Poor Backus was shot down on Broadway years ago, while Birch lingers, a poor man, too old to work and too jolly and vigorous to die. —Can. Pittsburg Dispatch. Senator Plumb's Mali Senator Plumb, of Kansas, is said by a Wushington correspondent to receive more mail than any other member of congress. Ho is a subscriber to more than 200 papers, nearly all of which are published in his state. Some one asked him if lie ever read these papers. "In deoi.1,1 do," lie answered. "It means ot fur-so pnl)lic:itii)iis that I aui kopt in constant touch with the pe* ilc of my state, and jtui bolter prepared, knowing their se :thii(i!its expressed through the papers, to serve my constituency." Be w.li-'ri tiiese papers he receives hundreds cf others. Koihiug is ever thrown from lib inmotjeul, »nd when he is not engaged in pinning hot shot into the enemy's camp across the chamber ho is up to his eyes in tho correspondence on ins desk. A DOUF IVInter. Probably the only deaf mute chairman of any organization in the United States is Anthony Capelli, a member of Typo graphical union No. 0, and at present holding tho position of "chairman of the chapel in a Pulton street office. I met him on Broadway as he was on his way home from his employment. He is a na tive of this city, and was born June 23, 1863. He entered the Institution for the Improved Instruction of Deaf Mutes, unci later the New York Institution at Washington Heights, where learned the trade of printing. He joined Big Six in 1876, and has been a constant member ever since.—New York Star. No l'Hirther Assuraiico Necessary. This story is being told of which Will Iain Hulbert, the 0-year-old son of Harry Hulbert, is tho hero. Mr. Hulbert re cently departed for Europe with his wife, William remaining behind- as the guest of his grandmother. 'Hie other morning she announced to her grandson at the breakfast table: "Well, Wiliiam, I have just got a telTgram that papa and mamma arrived 6afe." "Humph," replied the youngster. "Didn't I know that! Didn't I pray to God that tho ship wouldn't sink!"—Cin cinnati Enquirer. Construction of a Leg Bone. A novel operation has been performed in the Edinburgh Royal infirmary. A fanner was suffering from a diseased leg bone, induced by an accident. On medical advice he came to the infirmary and was put under the care of Mr. Miller, surgeon, who determined to remove the diseased portion and substitute an ox rib. The operation was performed a month ago, and it seems it has been so success ful that the man will be about again shortly with a limb as strong and healthy as ever.—New York Telegram. The most northerly railway in the world is that one between Sweden and Norway. It runs from L.ulea, a littlo town at the top of the Gulf of Bothnia, to Elvegaard, a fort on the Atlantic' in the fiord of Ofoten. The works are fre quently stopped ofi account of the sever ity of the climate, but it is hoped that the line will be opened in 1891. Bath, Me., is building what is expect ed to be the largest wooden sailing ship in the world. She will be 380 feet long on the keel, will be a three decker, and will carry four masts.
