in this town. Capt. Webster, our town

with them.

Collier, with other interesting exercises.
A very pleasant time is anticipated.
PRAIRIE fires are making havoc with
those shanties and buildings not pro
tected by afire break. A shanty south
west of Larimore owned by a Norwegian
named Paulson, was burned this week.
A farmer named Metelman, living three
miles from Bathgate, lost his house and
stable, and Adam Gardiner, near the same
place, lost a log house, stable and a quan
tity of hay by the same means. The im
portance of making wide fire breaks can
not be too strongly urged.
WE have repeated enquiries for rail
road news, especially concerning the
prospects of the Fargo, Grand Forks and
Pembina'1 railroad.. Our readers may
rest assiired that when anything of any
importance occurs in regard to railroad
projects effecting this part of the country
they will hear of it through the PIONEER
EXPRESS. We do not promise to repeat
all the rumors that fly this way, but it
will be ouP pleasure and aim to furnish
all news having sufficient substance to
be worth perusing. To those living
along the line of the proposed F., G. F.
and P. R. R. we would say that it will
be our endeavor to keep them posted on
developements right along, so that each
man will have a fair chance to get a
railroad depot on his farm.
SALT of excellent quality was dis
covered at Hamilton, II. T. From three
pints of water two pounds of salt has
been obtained.
The above item, bad grammar and all
went the rounds of quite a circle of
newspapers. As near as we can learn
it is something like the story of the
three black crows. Since by this time
no further advantage from the report
can accrue to the ambitious little city of
the plains, it will be no harm to put an
end to the joke. By the way, the item
in the first place should have read "three
pints of suit to two pouiids of water."

THE green three-cent postage stamp
which goes out in October will have had
a run of thirteen years. It succeeded
the short lived blue design which came
after the reds. Postage stamps began in
1841 with a five-cent issue bearing a
portrait of Franklin and a ten-centsUimp
with Washington's picture, and a seuond
saries with five denominations—1, 3, 5,10
and 12 cents—came not long after
ward.—

A SOMEWHAT shadowy rumor reaches
bs just before going to press tu.the effect
that the railroad managers havtf signified
their desire finally to have" tl^cukora
houselocatedu^ftrtheriver. THiswould
doubtless" answer this town very well,
suit the custom house folks, please St.
Vincent, promote harmony all around
and restore the St. Vincent Herald to a
state of equilibrium.
A VERY agreeable company assembled
at the house cf R. II, Young on Tuesiay
evening with intent to have a social time.
The house was pretty well filled and the
evening passed away quite pleasantly.
The proceeds amounted to $18—for their
is a financial appendage to that kind ol
sociables—for the M. E. Church. The
host and hostess allowed the company to
depart a little before midnight, with a
glad-to-meet, sorrv-to-part, come-again
kind of feeling.
Miss KATIE ABRAMS had a narrow
escape from what might have been a
serious, if not fatal, accident on Wednes
day In some way the fire from a burn
ing heap of rubbish caught her clothing,
and before it was noticed had made con
siderable headway. Her presence of
mind saved her. Snatching up a piece
around herself, smothering the fire before
ing of a new dress.
PERSONS unacquainted with the nature
of our soil here will be surprised to learn
that without another drop of rain be
tween this and harvest our crops might
grow, mature and afford a good yield.
The soil and climate of this valley are of
such a character that very little rain is
needed during the summer season.
Two years ago many farmers were pie
dieting just before harvest that the pre
vious protracted dry weather would have
a very damaging effect on the crops, but
were afcerwards surprised at the large
yield. There is more danger from wet
than from dry weather in this section of
Dakota
THE effects of the recent rain were
quickly visible in the grass and trees.
Welcome the green leaves! The birds
must needs have a grand open air con
certto celebrate the opening of the leaves.
From there shady bowers come the
charming notes of the robin, the gold
finch and the rustic but talanted Robert
0' Lincoln. These concerts will be at
the height of their season in a few days
and nowhere are their programmes more
charmingly rendered than right here in
thiB neck of the woods. The only fault
if it be a fault, is that the programme
commences rather early in the morning
for the majority of our citizens.
Now and then an echo of dissatisfaction
reaches us from the Devils Lake country.
That much advertised country is turning
out a good many disappointed land
hunters. The Grafton News says: Dr.
N. II. Hamilton and P. E. Sandager,
Esq., returned home this week from a
visit to Devil's Lake and its extensively
boomed towns. They expressed much
dissatisfaction with the quality of tii6
soil, and claim that there are scarcely
any actual settlers there. The bulk of
the settlements being townsite specula
tore. Hamilton and Sandager feel more
confident than over of the future
promises of Graflon.

THE pig is a favored animal in this
town. He runs where he listetli and no
one makes him afraid. Once in a while
lie gives vent to his humorous propensi
ties and gets his nose fastened in a tin
can. Then there is more fun in that pig
as he waltzes and flonrishes his tin can
than in a dozen minstrel shows.
'ROF. TRAVIS, principal 9f our public

But as yet he is very weak and consider

pletely recovers.
THE Phosa McAllister dramatic troupe,
played in Kitson Hall on Friday and
Saturday eveuinvrs of last week. The
attendance was not large the lirst even
ing, owing to the rain, but the second
evening's performance was witnessed by
a good house. The acting of the company
was fully up to their reputation, and was
voted by many to be the best ever wit
nessed in this town.
MIT^AXD MRS. WALTER KEMP were sad

three inches of 'ate^. in tin tub.a.t the
bors accompanied the parents of the lit

THE following from a Florida paper in
applicable as well to Dakota
It is a well known fact that tvecsalon^,
highways, trees in towns and cities, trees
in groves amidst agricultural regions ren
der the atmosphere purer. They, by
their foliage, absorb hurtful gases, whici)
would otherwise be breathed by the in
habitants of tl.e densely populated cities,
thereby modifying diseases, lesseningthe
dangers of epidemics, and in all ways
improving the healthfulness of communi
ties.

Maj. G. M. Brayton returned from his

came up by a misrepresentation we
could not do any better, but hope to in
the future when we will be happy to see
the boys from St. Vincent again. Mr.

Capt. Gennine got around in good shape
Brainerd, Grand Farks and Pem
bina Railroad,
Tlie St. Paul Pioneer Press, of Tues
day, had the following piece of railroad
news: Work upon the construction of
the Brainerd, Grand Forks & St. Paul
road is to be commenced at once, and
some time during the present week a
surveying party of eleven men will leave
Brainerd, under the direction of Maj.
Hunt, chief engineer. They will locate
the line from Brainerd northwest to Red
Lake Falls, Grand Forks, Wasson and
Pembina. The Brainerd Journal ^ys o.S a
ln/tu
bonuses amounting to SoOO.OOO have been
guaranteed bv the counties along the
line, and that a committee has been
appointed to arrange with Eastern
capitalists, who have signified a willing
ness to negotiate the bonds. The
Journal further says that amended
articles of incorporation will be tiled with
the secretary of state extending a branch
line from Red Lake Falls north through
Marshall county to connect with the
Winnipeg system at St. Vincent or Pem
bina. This will open a direct railroad
connection with Winnipeg and the
Canadian Pacific road, and with Minne
apolis and St. Paul.

The undersigned lost a pocket book,
probably between the town and the Fort,

one finding it will be suitably rewarded
by returning it to
