WE are in receipt of a sample copy of The Times, of Los Angeles, Cal., pro fusely illustrated, and showing up the Southern California mining interests in good shape. Klondike in all its splendor could not be shown up in better shape. THE immense los". of life and proper ty in Manitoba last Sunday, bv prairie fires is certainly a sufficient warning to. our own farmers, and yet there are doubtless many farmers still thinking that "tomorrow they will plow that break.,' JUDGE SaUter held chambersyesterday.

THE beautiful weather of the last two months is a subject of conversation even among those who have lived here long enough to expect our usual fine fall weather. The only difficulty with the present season, is*that it is too pleasant, it is too dry. It is almost two 'months since we have had a respectable shower and everything is very dry. A.' J. MCPA»IBT», of Necfce, came in from Joliette last evening where he had been looking after wheat shipments. He left this morning for Welford, where he will act as auctioneer in the The*.

Marshal Chambers of Gretna was with Mr. Jack son and they are looking for a Mennon ite woman who has run away from her husband. ONE John Biglow, who has been work ing near Drayton for some time, was ar rested yesterday for stealing* a coat from N. W. Caldwell. The detective work and chase was quite romantic. Mr. Biglow stole the coat several weeks ago and hid it in the weeds near the barn. Mr. Caldwell, who had several men in liis employ, found the coat, but left it and hired a man to keep watch, resulting in Biglow's arrest. ^Justice VanCamp gave him ten days and $10 fine. Attor ney Corwin appeared for the state, and Robert Ferguson for the prisioner. THE Neche Chronotype^ays that W. J. Watts, of Bay Center, has consented to the use of his name before the fourth district commissioner convention at Neche next Saturday. This is the first notice we have had to'the effect, but we have known Mr. Watts for a number of ars—and never anything to his discred it. He has always had a position on the St. Joseph-township "board, is an able man in every way and is thoroughly re liable. Mr. Watts, if he is the choice of die people, will make a good, officer and —Ihe people will have made np mistake. —Mountaineer. SOMEBODY, last night, went tor the store, house attached, to die residence of F. A.

The com mittee asked for two things first an ap propriation, or failing that, that the as sessment now standing against Bathgate township for $500 be applied to the ex tension and improvement asked for, and worked out by the township this fall. iW commissioners expressed as their opinion, that the extension was evidently a necessity but they could not see their way clear to grant an appropriation at present, because they, had but little mon ey, and there was some question as to its being legal. Also, the dijtch if ex tended thtough Bathgate township would also have to be extended a mile and a half into Neche township in order to find a natural: outlet. The commis sioners however, were unanimous in their opinion that they could not do any thing for the present, because the ditch matter is in litigation and the /bofudj ob jects to spending any money or doing any work on the ditch until the courts settle the fact whether the ditch belong^ to the county or not.

The St. Vinoent Fair. NEXT Friday St Vincent will just do the grand fair act. Two band aggrega tions, one from Hallock and one from Pembina will evoke harmony out of rivalry, and you can fill your pockets full of sweet sounds and take them home to grease the buck-saw or feed a mule. Then there will be vegetables galore, and the vegets are very able over in Kittson county this year, they tell us. There will be pumps and pumpkins though the latter are no kin to the former, and the former are imported at great cost as curiosities for St. Vincent people to see. There will be two large wind mills in circulation, one on the G. N. tank and another—well, we wiil wait until next week before we tell anything about the location of the other, as we want to see the fair—and we are afraid the New Era force would take the opportunity to mob us. There will be the usual variety of "sports," several specimen from Hallock, Donaldson and Pembina. You can tell them by the color ot their neckties and the angle at which they wear their hats. The most famous sport of -all, the one from Hallock, with a tall hat, long-tailed Prince Albert coat, and -a sliort-tailed curly moustache under his .nose, is un fortunately engaged at home this year taking care of a bran new baby. There will however be much more room for other people. His partner, who as yet has no baby to tend, is sure to be on the spct at least we think it his regular day to go to the fair. """s The races are sure to be of interest Nearly all of the races efithe American and European continents will be. repre sented, both pure-bred and the mixed varieties. The fair is bound to be of the wide (iperi style because -one of its prinap il officers is a Deaoon, while an other G1 tmbles for a living and the treasur is Adam good man too. Oh, you can get everything you \want and see a good deal more than that if you go to die fair at St. Vincent P. S. Take some of the fair with you you wlll fare better'if you do. ,.... Strange Oiroumstanoas. The remains of the Icelandic girl, Lera GudmanSson, were buried yesterday from the Icelandic church, and a large. Congregation were present Rev. Mr. Sigurdsson offidated. Previous to the :ft»eeal^« postmortem ^examination was held by Dr." LaBerge of Grafton'and Dr.. Clarke has Hafris of this city. While nothing finite has been given out, it is probably f^ftain that.death was caused by mis ^iriage b)it whether induced by drugs, or if so, by whom administered, is yet a matter of investigation. Dr. Halldorson ot Park River is said to have been the attending physician during her illness, and'his testimony will probably throw consideirkble lig^it on'the di^e. The girl Was nedt and good looking iaitd a gener al favorite: She had: been working fit the Winchester Hoiue for some time. She had ttstensibly started to visit friends near Milton about two. weeks ago, and her acquaintances here were much sur pris^ to learnof her^illness,'aiid death a. JEfarit River,- where it was not supposed that she had any friends. It is under* stood that further investigation mil be .maide, A peculiar drcumstance in this case is that ,Dr. Haidorson is himself the .coroner of.Walsh county, and in case of an inquest, wouid be the proper party to conduct the investigation.. The cause of death, which had to be placed, upon a card attached to the box that contained the remains, was ..undedpherable, and the physirians could make nothing out «f It I- AM INQUEST. In response to the report of the post mortem of yesterday, Dr. Suter, coroner A. L. Miller, states attorney attd H. C.
