The G. N. Rv. Co. recently pur
chaatft a number of large
from the Brooks Works at Dun
kirk, NY. Five of these "great
engines arrived here this week,
and will probably remain on
the temiiual of the Dakota and
Montana Division. They are
made by the American Locomo

improvements, and are much
heavier and larger than any of
the other engines at this point.

Another number is a male quartette
coming well recommended, also the
southern jubilee singers who have won
for themselves a musical reputation
worthy of note. It is not necessary to
speak of the qualities of such an able
lecturer as father Clarey, for many
have already heard him and he conies to
us with the assurance of entertaining
us in a manner long to be remembered.
This course will begin sometime in
the fall, the dates not being settled yet.
A nominal sum will be charged for a
season ticket, which will bo within the
reach of all. The efforts of the Epworth
League in this undertaking should be
heartily endorsed by all and when
tickets are presented let Minot give a
hearty helping hand.

The two hundred school tcachers who
are attending the summer school here
