Mouse River Ferry.
Last Saturday morning Messrs. J. G.
Thompson, Wm. strceter, S. W. Pierson and
D. G. Thompson went to Mouse river to look
up a location for a ferry across that stream.
There is quite a settlement on the west side
of the river, and the people there would like
to come hero to do their trading, but there
is no way to cross tho river. If the county
will supply a ferry boat, it would be a good
scheme for somebody to take a claim on the
river, put up a "stopping place," and attend
to the ferry. This would induce many more
settlers to go in there, and would be a good
thing for the county as well as this town.
The party went by the way of R. B. Scott's
ranch, and they all agree in saying*that the
land west of here to the ri7er is a) guol as
can be found in Dakota. They struck the
river about the south line of township 162
then turned down river and camped the
first night about half way across the town
ship, range 79. Next day they found what
is known as the old half-breed crossing, on
the line between townships 162 and 163
They also found there the stakes marking
the claims which Sam Greiner and Jacob
Ilearonemus had located a few days pre
vious. The river is near the east side of the
bottom land, and the prairie slopes gently
to the water's edge. The river at this point
is about 300 feet wide and 3 feet deep. On
the western shore is a hay meadow some
three-quarters of a mile wide, and the high
prairie can be reached by a ravine, which
furnishes a very easy grade for a road.
From this point to the boundary line is a
succession of hay meadows, the river valley
being on an average about a mile wide.
MAntUEn:—On Tuesday, June 19, at the
residence of Duncan McArthur, by tlie Rev.
Mr. Hulbert, Mr. D. H. McArthur, of Botti
neau, to Mis% Amelia Knapp, of Hamilton,
It has often been remarked that our hand
some and popular druggist, D. H. McArthur,
did not bestow much affection on any Of the
Bottineau belles, and many wondered there
at, but now it transpires that Dougal had
lost his heart some few summers ago. on the
classic shores of Lake Huron, where he met
the present Mrs. McArthur.
Last Monday evening Miss Knapp arrived
here, and on Tuesday the nuptial knot was
tied and now they are settled down in their
cosy little home in Bottineau.
Along with a host of admiring friends, the

The editorial excursion party, in charge
of D. R. McGinnis, arrived by special train
last Friday evening at about 6 p. m. and
made a stay of 45 minutes. They were
driven in carriages up to Dana's hill, and
after returning and looking over the stock
and grain which the farmers had brought
in to exhibit, the Rev. Ezra Turner made a
speech of welcome on behalf of the citizcns
of Bottineau, in which he gave a short
sketch of the early settlement of Bottineau
county and contrasted it with the present
condition of the county.
The Hon. Norman J. Colman, U." S, Com
missioner of Agriculture, was next intro
duced by the genial McGinnis, and in a neat
little- speech to ik occasion to compliment
the farmers on their fine display of stock,
which he said was the best he had seen since
leaving St. Paul. He also spoke in glowing
terms of the appearance of this country,
and emphatically declared that no part of
the United States has brighter prospects
than the Northwest, and especially North
Mr. Colman was followed by G. A. Mar
tin, of the American Agriculturist, New
York C. D. Colman, Colman's Rural World,
St. Louis G. W. Hill, The Farmer, St. Paul
and W. II. Lawrence, Ohio Farmer, Cleve
land, who made short speeches compliment
ary to the country, stock, etc.
This excursion was arranged by C. H.
Warren, Gen. Pass. Agent St. P., M. & M.
Railway, and was in charge of D. R. Mc
Ginnis, private secretary to Mr. Warren,
and w€ want to say right here that a better
man could not .have been selected for the
position. Too much credit cannot be given
Mr. Warren for planning this excursion,
for if these gentlemen, who represent the
leading farm journals of the United States,
and who are all close observers, will only
*ive their impressions of this country,
rough their different papers, an incalculable
amount of advertising will be given to Da
kota. Most of the gentlemen composing the
party had never been in the Northwest be
fore and were surprised and delighted with
what they saw.
The excursionists had been out ten days,
had been up to Winnipeg and out as far
west as Helena, and were then on their re
turn trip, having traveled nearly 4,000
miles since leaving St. Paul. The following

Unusual interest was manifested in the
school election on Tuesday, and the people
generally turned out to vote, which shows
that they nre anxious for good school gov

publican, prohibitionist or mugwump.
There were three candidates in tho field
for county superintendent: F. W. Cathro,
Alex. Burr and Henry Rochelcau, the latter
being the dark horse from Willaw City. Mr.
Cathro was elected by a handsome msyority
