J. Ilooye has been very sick,

There has been considerable said
pro and con about the twine. But we
have often wondered how it is that the
twine is 51 cents per pound cheaper
this year than it was last, when the
difference in the wholesale prices is a
trifle over Ic per lb. Perhaps the Alli
ance has had it share in bringing about
the tumble in prices.

The hum of the thresher is heard

The harvest is almost completed and

Deibel that were grown on the town
site the average yield was sixty-five
bushels per acre.
A number of our citizens attended

The Milton correspondent to the
Langdon Republican appears to make
a specialty of hurting some one in each
issue. Two weeks ago he jumped on
the editor of the Globe with language
not fit to be uttered let alone printed,
because the eyer increasing patronage
made it necersary for him to get a
larger and more convenient office.
Jealously, we suppose was the cause.
Bat his object in criticising the acci
dent that befell two of our most popu
lar yonng ladies last week in the
manner he did, we nor anyone else
cannot understand. The ladies and
their friends, who compose the major
ity of our citizens, are justly indignant
at the imputation put upon the acci
dent by said correspondent. The
horse which the young ladies were
driving, was a young one and became
unmanageable, and the ladies were
thrown out accidentally, and not in
tentionally as the cute correspondent
of the Bepublican would insinuate.
But then such rot is quite in keeping
with the other matter in the G. D. W.
