The fire alarm was sounded
Sunday morning, and the depart
ment was called out to afire in a
small barn near the hospital. The
fire had gained good headway be
fore the hose cart arrived. The
boys had hose enough to reach
only as far as the hospital, and so
they had to witness its burning
without being able to stay its
spread. Fortunately the wind was
blowing towards the open space
on the west of the barn, and no
other buildings were in danger.
The barn caught fire from a
manure pile near by which had
been smouldering for some time.
The barn belonged to Peter Smith,
and was an old structure. Again

A report from South Dakota has
these kindly words of Congress
man Burke, a genial, clever gentle
man who has interests with Mayor
Brown of Devils Lake—another
good fellow. The report says:
"The 'anti-machine' Republicans
of the state bitterly opposed the
nomination of Charles H. Burke
of Pierre for congress two years
ago, but Mr. Burke has proved
himself such a hustler—sustaining
the predictions of his friends—
that he will in the convention to

Tbe closing session of the XIX
Century club preparatory to their
summer vacation was held at the
library rooms on Thursday, May
24. A committee of three was
appointed to draft a petition to
the city council, asking that in
the event of the erection of a new
city hall, that suitable provision
be made for a public library and
reading room. According to the
by-laws of the club, it was thought
best to close the library during the
heated term, but so much interest
has been evinced by the reading
public, that the library committee
will arrange that parties desiring
will have the opportunity to select
books as heretofore. At the close
of the business session, a social
hour was spent, when the presi
dent, assisted by Mrs. Rhuberg,
served coffee, ice cream and cake
to the local club guests, when the
meeting adjourned. A meeting
will be called for Chautauqua
sometime in July.
Kent & Manger's new livery
barn was opened to the public yes
terday. The new barn, as com

structure, painted a slate color

many times the size of Devils
Lake, It extends on the corner
from street to alley, about 140 feet,
and covers two lots. On the lower
story are office, carriage and stock
apartments. The front section of
the building for about 50 feet con
tains the office, which is a neat
and commodious apartment. Sur
rounding it is a large room for
carriages. This room has a large
sliding door on each street. Ad
joining this section is the portion
containing the stalls. This section
extends to the alley and is divided
into 10 double stalls on one side
and 20 single stalls on the other.
A deep well has been sunk in one
of them. The other section con
tains about 16 cages for blooded
stock. The second story is taken
up by hay loft and sleeping apart
ments. The loft is about 100 feet
long. The sleeping apartments
for employes adjoins this on the
front. Carriages will also be stored
here in winter, as this apartment
is very large. The building is
lighted by electricity throughout.

The Cause of the Famine.
India is a country not quite
half as large as the United States,
with four times its population.
These 300,000,000 people must be
fed from their own crops, as there
is, relatively, no manufacturing
resource to buy food with. There
are parts of India with a popula
tion of 1,000 people to the square
mile and there are millions upon
millions of farm laborers, vagrants
gypsies, and nondescript classes,
whose means of living, even in
times of plenty, are inscrutable.
In a normal year the country, as
a whole, produces a little more
food than is actually necessary to
support its people. But the crops
are dependent on the monsoons—
the southwest monsoon in the be
ginning of summer, and the north
east monsoon in the winter. If
these periodic rains are late or are
insufficient in quantity, trouble
comes, and the spring and winter
crops of wheat, barley and pulses
in the north and of rice ana mil
lets in the south, begin to suffer.
When the moonsoons fail abso
lutely, there is destitution in the
affected district, and when a per-

The cause of tfais suffering is not far to seek. It grows ©utfr
of some derangement of the feminine functions or of
