While in Osnabrock a few weeks ago
a photograph of Company E was tak
en by Photographer McCarthy. The
photographs are nicely finished and
are weil worth the price asked for them
—50 cents apiece. Capt. McQuarrie
has them for sale.
Secretary Allert requests the several
superintendents of the various depart
ments of the Agricultural Society to
meet at his office at 4 o'clock, p. m., on
Saturday, Oct. 3rd, to confer with the
executive committee who will hold a
session on that day.
The wet, disagreeable weather of the
past few days has made many farmers
wish they had stacked as much of their
wheat as possible. Begin it now. All
indications pointto a wet fall and farm
ers might just as well have their wheat
crop safe in the stack.
The lumber merchants are doing a
thriving business these days. If there
is any one class of goods more than an
other that we like to see leave the
town it is lumber. It is an evidence
that farmers are making themselves
more comfortable, and being comfort
able they will feel more contented with
their homes.
Shannon Bros., of Grand Forks,
state agents for the Leeds Importing
Co., of Adrian, Minn., are in the city
this week. They brought up the horses
which our supplement speaks about.
They are fine looking specimens of
horse flesh and no mistake, and should
prove quite a drawing card for the fall
fair if their owners will exhibit them.
If there is one thing more than an
other that the hearts of the "women
folks" yearn for in this new country it
is a nice comfortable dwelling house,
and the surplus cash in the farmer's
pocket this fall cannot be laid out to a
better advantage. Good dwellings,
stables and granaries will add greatly
to the cash value of your real estate.
SENSATION AX OTTAWA.
OTTAWA, Ont., Sept 22.—Phis

Lister, member of parliament for
Lambton, gave notice that tomorrow
he will more the impeachment of

struction of section B, of the Cana

will be that while a member, Hag
gart was interested in this contract
given by the government for con
struction of that part of the railway
which runs between Keewatin and
.Eagle river. Haggart was not at
the time a member oi the ministry,
being given a portfolia only in 1886.

Peter McLean: We threshed twenty
one acres of wheat for E. E. Elfordthis
week which yielded 750 bushels, or 35

There is lots more just as good as that,'
Mr. Elford was offered 70 cents a bush:

Mr. J. J. Souch received the sad in
telligence this week of the death of his
young sister, from quick consumption,
at her home in Ontario. Mr. Souch
was informed but a short time ago of
her severe illness and was making ar
rangements to pay her a visit after
his liaryest was safely garnered.
On Monday Messrs. Plummer & Mc
Niven commenced the erection of an
addition to to their hardware store
which will be used as a furniture room.
Besides the stock which they purchased
of Mr. Chisholm they have a carload of

Chas. Chisholm made another deal
last week by disposing of his entire
stock of furniture to the firm of Plum
mer & McNiven. The COURIER-DEMO
CRAT hopes the deal will prove mutual
ly profitable to both parties. Mr.
Chisholm is yet undecided as to the
business that will occupy his future at
tention.
Rheumatism is caused by a poisonous
acid in the blood and yields to Ayer's

success.
The Porter boys, of Hannah, were
in the city yesterday, and purchased of
Geo. Nulph, that 12-horse power
threshing machine advertised in the
COURIER-DEMOCRAT. The advertise
ment paid the COURIER-DEMOCRAT,
the sale paid the owners and obtaining
such a bargain will pay the purchasers.
Mutual satisfaction all around and
once more makes good the oft repeated
assertion and self-evident fact that ad

Capt. McCormack, in Grand Forks
Herald—You talk of freight dis
criminations, but here is one I think
that beats the world. When I was
at Seattle I inquired as. to whether
or not they would handle North
Dakota flour. All the dealers were
not only willing but anxious to get
it. When I returned, I asked the
boys why they did not ship some
floor oat there. They said freights
were too high. I looked ap the
matter and found that although I
could send a barrel of flour from
here to Liverpool for eighty cents
it took just two dollars and forty
cents a barrel to ship it to Seattle.
There is discrimination that dis
criminates.

ao, Sept. 18.—To The Argus:—I
haW read with a good deal of interest
yij^v article of the sixteenth instant, as
ied from the Minneapolis Tribune's
ashington special,and must say that,
the main, the man who wrote it was
Jot far out of the way on most of the
Joints that he made.
fl&There ia no disguising the fact that
very4ittle work among the Scandinavi
ans would make North Dakota a demo
cratic state. There is scarcely a legis
lative district in this state that the
Scandinavians do not hold the balance
of power,and in a great mady an actual
majority of the votes. Fully one-third
yes, nearly one half of the votes in this
state are cast by the Scandinavians and
their descendants, and the time has
gone by when the mere name of repub
lican will hold them to the party they
are a reading and a thinking people
you go to their homes and you will find
newspapers that are carefully read that
treat of the various topics of the day,
including political economy and the
various political parties and their aims
as affecting their interests. While they
as a rule are not free traders, they are
also opposed to too high a protective
tariff they are willing to protect infant
industries,but when it comes to protect
the men who ask protection for their
wares at home, and then go to Europe
and other foreign markets to compete
with the English and other foreign
manufacturers, they think it is time to
call a halt. The time has also gone by
when a few self-constituted bosses can
get together and map out a campaign
and have the Scandinavian voters walk
up to the polls and vote as they are
bidden to do.
The McKinley bill, I venture to say,
will make more democrats from the
Scandinavians than most men have an
idea at the present time. The very fact
that the few articles that were either
put on the free list, or greatly reduced,
has made them,as well as a great many
Americans, think that a little more of
the same sort might be a good thing.
In 1890 twine was from 12 to 18 cents
per pound, while this year it is from 8
to 14 cents for the same twine. Then
take the item of sugar, in 1890 the far
mer got from eleven to twelve pounds
of granulated sugar for $1.00, this year
he gets from eighteen to twenty pound
of the same sugar for the same money,
and so you may go on through the
whole list. It is true that what we sell
mainly, viz.: wheat, is protected, that
does not amount to anything as we are
exporters and not importers of that or
any other farm produce in North Da
kota.—Hon. J. A. Johnson.
SHOT AND STABBED
James Gallagher of Minto Shot and Stsh
bed Twice In the Abdomen*
MINTO, Sept. 17.—Yesterday
afternoon while James Gallagher,
a farmer, living three miles from town,
was settling with a hired man, they
got into a dispute over a few dollars
difference between them. Words led
to blows and the hired man drew a re
volver and shot Gallagher. The ball
entered the forehead, passing through
the skull and lodging into or near the
brain. A deadly scuffle then followed
during which the hired man drew a
knife and stabbed Gallagher, inflicting
an awful wound in the abdomen. Still
they struggled until the knife was bro
ken then the hired man ran for the axe
and took to the road where he was
overpowered and taken to jail. A sis
ter of Gallagher rendered him timely
assistadce during the struggle. Drs.
Evans and O'Keefe of Minto, were
called to dress the wounds of the
wounded man. They thought at first
that he could not live, but the latest
reports favor his recovery.
