RAIN has been the most inviting topic of conversation the past week. BE honest and eay that there is not one motiquito to every hundred yod expected this season. W. W. COLE, with his mammoth menagerie is in Emerson to-day. Many of our citizens will no doubt run across -and take in the sights. STRAWBERRY PARTIES are numerous just now. The berries though small are plentiful and they are coming into town in considerable quantities. THE express office has been moved from the old stand on Stuttsman street, to the store of Messrs. McTavish & Webb, who will hereafter have the management of the office. THE public school of this town was closed last' Monday and the teachers and pupils are now enjoying a well earned vacation. School will re-open August 13, under the same management. CATHOLIC service will be held at the house of Mrs. Alice McDonald, the tilen gary Hotel, near Hamilton, by Father .Quintal on Tuesday next, July24,at 10.30 «, m. A full attendance is desired. "THOSE tepees and their inhabitants," referred to by "One Interested" last week have been compelled to retire beyond the City limits and Capt. Webster, our t»4own marsh all, Is now waiting for more worlds to conquer. IT is ^possible under certain circum stances for a man to look four ways at the same instant. Thisfeat was accomplished the other day by a certain selfrespecting young gentleman who slipped on a mud dy place and sat down. We regret to learn that the same young gentleman made an extemporaneous speech on the occasion that was more profane than ele gant Otherwise his graceful-movements would have "entirely saved his reputa JSon 1*5** ,1 f**t COUPLE of thriving tramps mndes midnight tour ofthe town lsat nighl. They were followed by a number of citi censwho chanced to be out late, and finally driven from town. THE heaviest thunder storm of the season passed over town last Friday af ternoon. Mr. Alex. McDonald of South Pembina was so unfortunate as to lose a valuable horse which was struck by lightning while standing in the sta ble. THK Faigo Aigus has been giving its readers some lessons on the geography ofjfembina county Itjays St Tboaias ft in the northehn^^ftt tif Pembina county and Grafton is tlie county seat. Well done. Qo lip. WK have been requested to say that there area number of cows and pigs run ning at large in town, much to the an noyance of some of bur good people. It should not be necessary to call attention to this mattur and we hope not to have to do it again.' THK Geroux House has been supplied with an elegant illustrated hotel register containing a variety of photographic scenes taken from the Yellowstone Park. The book was got up at the Fargo Re publican office and reflects credit upon that institution. Mr. E. B. Winship is the agent. PETER COOPER once said: "Injall towns where a newspaper is published, every man should advertise in it, even if noth ing more than a card stating his name and the business he is engaged in. It does not only pay the advertiser, but it lets people at a distance know that the town you reside in is a prosperous com munity of business men. As the seed is sowu so the seed recompences. Never pull down your sign while you expect to do business." COLLECTOR BOOKWALTER returned last week from his trip to Turtle Mountain and Mouse River country. From his report and that of Judge Tweedlie and others who have recently traversed the country between tiie Pembina Mountain and Turtle Mountain country, we And that there is a great amount of excellent farming land yet vacant in that region. This is doubtless one of the finest dis tricts iu Dakota now remaining open for settlement. Mr. Bookmaker brought back a.line specimen of coal He was accoinpauied by Mr. A. D. CttVlleer. FAKUO AKGUS: H. R. Vaughn is a popular citizen of Pembina county, and we are glad to learn through reading the following that he is becoming religious: "Tilings are looking blue here, but bless God ithasbecjn raining.foran liour and it still continues. I have been.pver the county a good deal and I figure thus: That one-half the area sown cannot now be more than half a crop, the other half will be an average crop if we get plenty of min. If we don't get rain soon we are gone, but as I write it comes nicely. Traveling men tell me that our county is ahead of any from Fargo north." THE following from the International regarding a former Pembina boy will be read with interest: At the annual com mencement held a few days ago at Yale College, New Haven, Conn., a young Canadian, G. M. Clarke, son of H. J. Clarke, Q. C.. ex-attorney-general of Manitoba, graduated with high honors as couusellor-at-law and solicitor in chancery taking also the degree of L.L. B. At the close the dean of the faculty compliment ed Mr. Clarke very highly on his abilities, and wished him a brilliant career in his profession. Mr. Clarke was first admit ted to the bar at Pembina, about three years ago. 5 y:T ••,xxrfv! jsV 5 & factorily. that TUB idea some farmers entertain deep plowingjis not necessary in thededp' soil of BSkofe 1 aSnosf^ifil tefcidciaand detrimental one. Mr. F. Kindred's large ferm niear Valley City'is flISstrative of this fact. Laat foil's plowing on this farm was at least six inches deep—an unusual depth for Dakota soil. The grain of all kinds on the form of Mr. Kindred stands full and strong, and to-day pro mises an abundant yield, while other farmers are complaining at the prospects. Mr. Kindred is satisfied that the extra labor expended in preparing his land last year will be well repaid by tlie extra yield the coming harvest Da kota dirt will raise prodigious yield?, but like other localities, it will pay to farm it after approved methods.—Inter national. THERE is to be an excursion from -the Four Corners by the steamer Selkirk to attend the base ball tournament at Grand Forks on Monday next between the Emerson boys and the Grand Forks club. A large company including the Emerson cornet band will accompany the ball players. They will leave Sat urday afternoon at 2.30 o'clock arriving at Grand Forks early Sunday morning. On reaching their destination the com pany, under the direction of Mr. "Tab ernagle" will inarch in a body to attend some Sunday school and again to church in the evening. In this way they hope to quiet their conscience for going on a base ball excursion on Sunday. The company will doubtless be aright jolly one. The editor of this paper would much enjoy such a trip, but being strict American citizen and steadily opposed to every tendency not in har mony with the better impulses of the nineteenth century, he will slip oat with out being missed and wait for the next excursion. $ifg® Ma. C. W. WILLIAMS, ofWakopa,Man., is about to take up his residence in th^ town. He wiU be Joined by his fiually torn Stratford, Ontario. Mr, Williams we regret to learn, has met witti*^ seri ous loss in the deatiuctlon qf his grist and saw mill by fire at Wakopi. As near as we can learn the milte wsn valued $10,000 on which there was no insur ance. Th« picnic of the M. E. Sunday school last Saturday at Scott's wove passed off very" pleas antly, Some 100 or more people etc. There would have been a larger attendance had the morning not been dark aud unpromising. The drive to and from the grove was not the least enjoyable feature of thd day, about twen ty carriages or more joining the process- ion. PERSONAL.—Messrs. THE PEMBINA BLACK CAPS 1 We understand the Red Stockings will shortly visit Pembina for the return match, and they will bring a stronger team than the one our boys met last Saturday. An interesting match may therefore be looked for. Church Notes. Services will be held at the Presby terian church this evening at 8 o'clock. Rev. A. K. Baird will be present1. The Rev. L. D, Wai dwell will occupy the pulpit of the M. E. church next Sunday evening. Subject: "The gloryofChrist's perfection." Rev. A. K. Baird, of Iowa, will preach Sabbath morning and evening, July 22, at the Presbyterian church. Mr. Baird ranks as one of the most able end ei quent divines in the North West. All should hear him. THK crop reports in some ofthe papers from counties between here and Fargo and to the west differ considerably from apparently reliable information which we get from parties who have traveled those parts of the country. There is little to be gained by falsifying the state of things. Some of our exchanges have nothing to say except about wheat fields that will average from twenty to twenty-five and thirty bushels to the acre. Such talk is calculated to create an impression which is far from the truth. From all that we can learn, the crops in Pembina county are fully as good as in any other county in North Dakota, if not indeed a little more promising. An average yield of eighteen bushels of wheat to the acre the country over would be a remarkable yield. An average of fifteen bushels to the acre in Pembina county is all that is claimed by the most sanguine calculator, who has any general knowledge of the county. Dogs In Dog Days or other Days. Editor PIONEEB-EXPBESI: On Friday afternoon while oq her way to her ferm residence, Mrs. Wilkins was overtaken by an infuriated, evidently mad, dog, which she had just quietly passed running with a team, bounu southward. The beast came with a yelp from behind the buggy and nearly suc ceeded in landing at her feet. Thinking) at first that the dog was in play, she made no efforts to drive it off. until a second attempt was made to jump into the buggy, when the whip was nsed, which so enraged, the brute that it flew at the horse, biting it on the stifle. The horse by this time became frightened and with the reins in one hand to stop the animal from a wild run and the whip in the otheir, she endeavored to drive off the dog which actually succeeded in repeatedly jumping square on the horsti'i) back, and once hung by its teeth to the mane. For half an hour the chase continued with uninterrupted attempts by the dog to jump on to the horse or into the buggy, until it became so fatigued as to lie down to rest, but soon renewing its attacks when the horse ran into Mr. Jennings' farm house, where assistance was ob tained. Mr. Gorman took charge of the buggy and went to meet the team with which the dog had been to Pembina. The man in chance confessed that he had seen the whole thing, but it probably never entered his mind to get down and assist a woman in peril of her life. Upon Mr. Gorman advising him to shoot the dog, he answered that the dog came run ning to his place some time ago, that it was not his and that he should not shoot it Mrs. Wilkins suffers from a severe nervous shock. There are by far too many curs running about, and war to the knife should be declared on those which run at large and are apparently owned by .body. PEM3WA, DAKOTA., FRIDAY *0 TBB CIVIS.
