ask him how much he will take for his

ON Wednesday forenoon, a fire broke
out Mr. Moorlicad's grainery, a short
distance west of town. A few moments
after the alarm was given nearly every
man in town was at the scene, and the
fire was got under control before much
damage was done to the grain, of which
•there was a large quantity, but not
until farm machinery to the amount of
some four hundred dollars was destroyed.
A boy of Mr. Mooiheads was lyingasleep
only a few feet from the building and
narrowly escaped being burned, bis coat
being well singed. It is not known how
the fire originated.
THERE is a clause in the new school
law of Dakota which requires that "every
parent, guardian or other person having
in charge any child or children between
the ages of ten and fourteen years is re
quired to send such child oi children to
a public school at least twelve weeks in
each school year." Children physically
unable to attend school, those who
receive private instruction and those
whose houses are two miles or more from
any school house are excepted from the
provisions of the aet. The design is to
render compulsory the educatiou of the
young.—Press and Dakotian.
THE Phosa McAllister combination
will play in Kittson Hall on Friday and
Saturday evenings of this week. Speak
ing of their performance in Grand Forks,
last Monday evening, the Herald says:—
Last evening Phosa McAllister, with an
excellent company, the merits of which
are too well known and recognized to
demand an extended notice, opened a
short season to a good business. The
play was "State's Evidence," the plot,
situations and movement of which werA
highly sensational and of absorbing
interest. The handling of the play last
evening was exceptionally fine. While
the character of Kate Midland did not
permit Miss McAllister to display her
rare emotional powers as in some other
of her popular roles, yet her impersona
tion of it was in the highest degree
interesting, not to say fascinating. It
was a finished and artistic piece of work.
Second only to Miss McAllistor, the
interest of the audience centered in. J.

KITE FLYING among the boys is com

occurred Wednesday evening in con

thought he would try his skill in the

rifle. Taking a steady aim when the

THE Salem Pioneer Register proposes
to start a daily paper if its patrons will
come down with the necessary patron

to start a daily paper unless the business
of the town will warrant the undertaking

the people. There is some difference be
tween starting a paper and establishing
a paper as some ambitious fellows have

whole county a voice in theT1 matter
Doubtless for the reason, chiefly, that in
every newly settled district itjfa difficult
to get the mass of the setilora*iterested'
in any public question, and th&aa matter
of this kind is left to the inanimation of
a few with the possibility o|, a decision
contrary to the wiahes.of a molarity ofthe
people. Hence in 'provid^fej for the
establishment of a new county to meet
the demands for local government in a
country rapidly filling up, it itf generally
wise to submit the question to the voters
of the whole district effected thereby.
The vote on the question is not likely to
be a large one, but those who do take
sides at the ballot box should give the
matter due consideration aitad not be
governed by local considerations on
selfish motives. "Will the Creation of
Harvey county at this timeifbe for the
best interests of the people who will be
long.to, it?" is- the main question to be
considered. There will yet be two
issues of the PIONEER-EXPRESS,before the
date of the election. It is unnecessary to
say that our columns are open to the
discussion of this matter. Should any
one choose to avail himself of its privi
lege, let him confine himself to'
avoiding local or side issues.?
