Wm. Hall of Grand Forks, was in town
several days last week looking after a
certain piece of farm property he was
desirous of purchasing. It lies in Joli
ette township, and it Mr. Hall purchases
it he will remove from the Forks and go
to,farming. Mr. Hall was a resident of
thi^ county in early days and will be re
membered by the old settlers.—Pink

the Joliette neighborhood.
We noticed at the depot this week a
big round machine with big wheels and
little ones, consigned to R. F. Smith for
his laundry. It looks like Mr. Smith's
business was increasing so rapidly that it
is necessary for him to call in the aid of
steam to do his work. Mr. Smith does
excellent laundry work and with the aid
of his new steam apparatus will doubt
less be able to do the work a little more
quickly when a rush order is given. We
are all glad to note Mr. Smith's success
in his business.
Elsewhere in this issue will be found
the announcement of Wm. McMurchie
of St. Thomas as a candidate for the of
fice of states attorney subject to the de
cision of the democratic convention.
Mr. McMurchie is an attorney of estab
lished reputation, and personally a good
fellow if elected he will doubtless fill
the office with ability and faithfully. We
hope he may get the nomination he
seeks, for then, if the republican candi
date is defeated, we may expect our
loss to be at least more political than
Edward Vance, for many years one of
the prominent and most respected citi
zens of Emerson died on Sunday, aged
49 years and 5 months. Mr. Vance had
been mostly engaged in the horse busi
ness and had many acquaintances and
friends on this side of the line. His
death was caused by a cancer on the
jaw and he had been in a critical condi
tion for several weeks. He was a mem
ber of the Oddfellows Lodge and his
funeral occurred under their auspices at
St. Luke's church at Emerson on Tues
day. Quite a number from here attend
ed the last sad services.
St. Thomas is to have a free country
delivery. This is a sort of experiment
that the postal authorities are
trying. It aims at delivery of mails at
farm houses. This paper has always
favored free delivery of mail matter in
towns and villages similar to the delivery
in large cities. It seems to us perfectly
feasible to deliver mails about any town
at a very small cost. Two trips a day
and some places only one trip, occupy
ing perhaps one hour of the carrier's time
ought not to be very expensive or com
plicated, and very much less than to have
special delivery for three or four miles
out in the country. On the other hand
we never could see why the drivers on
stage mail lines shouldn't deliver mail to
the people who live along the road.
That sort of country delivery ought not
cost the government anything extra and
be of great convenience.
An interesting case to the members of
the A. O. U. W. order is shortly to come
before the attorney-general of Ontario.
The grand lodge of Ontario seceded
from the supreme grand lodge of Ameri
ca several months ago. The Manitoba
grand lodge still belongs to the parent
order, and the lodge at Rat Portage is
still in the jurisdiction of this province.
The Ontario grand lodge is opposed to
the establishment of any A. O. U. W.
lodges in their province by the supreme
lodge, and has made a deadset against
the one in Rat Portage, which was orga
nized long before the split. Mr. F. H.
Phippen, ot this city, and Mr. Clute, Q.
C., of Toronto, wiil represent the Mani
toba brethren, and indirectly '.he inter
ests of the supreme lodge. The applica
tion will be heard Sept. Oth under the
Friendly societies act of Ontaria.—Win

NOICE—At Hyde Park, N. D., on Aug.
8, 1898, Mary Noice, widow of the late
John Noice, aged 72 years.
The funeral occurred on the 19th, the
interment being at Walhalla. The de
ceased came from Ontario to Dakota in
1879, and has resided at Hyde Park ever
since. Three daughters and four sons
of the deceased are residents of this
county, and one son lives in Ontario.
Mrs. Noice had been an invalid for years
but was ever cheerful and seemed to ex
ist solely for her children. She was a
woman of intelligence, with a heart as
kind and generous as ever beat in hu
mane breast She was esteemed by all
who knew her and by her children dear
ly loved.
Tbe yearg rolled on
But tbe last one eped
Their idol was shattered.
Their earth itir fled.
DOBKING—At Bathgate, N. D., on Tues
day, August 30, 1698, of cholera mor
bus, Fred, aged two years, son of Mr.
and Mrs. L. K.,
A few weeks ago there was advertised
a special sale of a certain class of dry
goods in this pape*. Some ladies who
saw the ad took advantage of the fact
and made early selections and were
much pleased with their bargains, and
in their joy told a neighbor, who also
went but who found that some of the
prettiest patterns had been already sold.
She expressed her dissappointment at
not knowing of the sale sooner, but on
being reminded that the sale had been
advertised, she said, that she never both
ered to read advertisements. The moral
ol this story in her case and in the case of
others who do not bother to read adver
tisements, is quite plain, and as a matter
of fact it will pay the reader ah—
-raj's to"
run over tlie advertisetiientri.
not always want just what is theij adver
tised, but sometimes they are sure to
strike you and then you can save money.
There is another moral to this story for
the advertiser himself, and that is, that
the influence of the advertisement goes
much farther than just to the individual
reader. The new woman who after
much "sweeping the floor" of newspa
pers, finds the precious^ewel of a bar
gain, straightway calls in her neighbors
"to rejoice with her" just as her older
sister did in New Testament days.
Rev. G. W. Faryon, of Dominion City,
conducted services here on Sunday last,
and was instructed by the Winnipeg
Presbytery to read to the congregation
at both services the "statement" of Dav
id Forrester in connection with the re
cent agitation. It read as follows: "To
the Presbytery of Winnipeg in the mat
ter of Presbytery vs. D. Forrester.—
Without raising the question as to the
correctness according to ecclesiastical
usage of the form of procedure adopted
by the Presbytery- in the Robertson case
upon which usage I claim no special
knowledge, I desire to say that in the
case of the Presbytery against myself, I
freely state that I never did, nor do I
now attribute any wrongful motives to
either the Presbytery or any member, or
any commissioner thereof, as to the man
ner in which they dealt with the case of
myself vs. Robertson, and further that
on the occasfon complained of, I did not
impute any wrongful motive, and I
heartily and freely state that if anything
said on that occasion was capable of such
construction, it was not my intention
that it should be so understood, and I
withdraw the same in so far as it can be
so construed. I further desire to
express my deep regret over the
troubles that have disturbed our church
life, and I trust that all parties will earn
estly study and strive lor the things that
make for peace. Aug. 9. (Signed)
