Christmas is in sight All the store windows show the signs of its coming, and the urchins are all late home from school—from staring at the beautiful and wonderful things that are on display. Pembina merchants evidently believe that Santa Claus is coming this year lor sure. School attendance still on the increase and keeps teachers and school board studying how to aecommodate them. The carriage plan for the Geroux bridge scholars is being tried this month. Only two scholars came the first day but about five or six are expected to avail them selves of the opportunity. We regret to learn of the death of Mrs. J. T. West of Crystal who died on Tues day and was buried Thursday of this week.

Good times over there will have considerable effect in retaining 't'ie present government. PEMBINA, N. D. General Banking, Insurance, FARI1 LOANS. Conveyancing CC le :'ors, Prompt Remittance*.

Invitations are being prepared for a public installation of Masonic officers at the: -lodge room ion ^Friday, Dec.l5tbT The hall being small the invitations wi|J be confined to Masons and families and few others. Our nice summery weather caught a severe cold last Saturday, Sunday and Monday, with quite a flurry of snow. Guess it was just to make us appreciate what we were getting previous and since for it has moderated and is quite pleasant again. On Wednesday morning about six o'clock Henry Zoerb, who has recently bought the Grogan farm from W. J. Kneeshaw, built a hot fire on getting up, and owing to a defective chimney, the house caught fire, and was consumed so rapidly that but little could be saved. The house was about two miles from town and no neighbors live near. The children were compelled to go about a mile to the next neighbors just as they were taken from their beds. We under stand that the most of the loss is covered by insurance a policy having been writ ten up only the day before. The tax sale on Tuesday attracted quite a number of out of town buyers, some to invest and some to protect mortgagees. The interest is somewhat of an inducement to investors, being 29 per cent the first year and two per cent per month altenvard. A large propor tion, estimated by the county officers to be mote than half, of the list of lands as advertised have been paid previous to the day of sale, leaving less than 350 pieces for sale. As usual the bulk of the town lots were knocked down to the county, but in very few cases were lands left for the county. This year very much less than half as as large a list of lands was sold for taxes than ever before in the history of the county since it was settled up. Marriage Licences. The following marriage licenses have been issued this week: Dec. 2nd.—Thomas Warden to Eliza J. Shultz, both of Drayton. William C. Shultz to Sarah A. Devlin, both of Drayton. Dec. 4th.—Wilber R.

He says his mother continues to improve and is able to sit up a little. Dan Rogers "jolly Dan of long ago" was attending the tax sale on Tuesday, and was for buying the whole of "Huron City" his old stamping ground. Among other buyers at the tax sale we noticed Ex-treasurer E. T. Thompson artd T. A. Miller of St. Thomas I. J. Foster of Bathgate and E. H. Gordon of Cavalier. "They parted my garments among them and upon my vesture did they cast lots." Stuart Thompson, S. R. Moorhead, Dr. Lockwood, A. H. Anderson and S. J. Cullom were all at Pembina this week and it must have been lonesome for the other half of Hallock while they were gone.

Green, Hamilton jitmes Baker, Neche A. H. Oakes, St. Thomas. Martin Kratt of Crystal was a pleasant aller this week. Mr. Kratt's hundreds of friends in this county will be flad to! learn that the last surgical operation of removing the nerve from his face seems to hive been a perfect succees and he is not likely to have more trouble with it. M. H. Miller left on Monday in re sponse to a telegram from Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, announcing the serious Ill ness of his father. Mr. Miller Sr.kuftered paralytic stroke last spring, but re covered, and this second attack was more alarming than the first one.

His many friends at this place wish him success and God speed in his adventurous undertaking.— Pink Paper. Some indications of the benefit to Drayton of the new bridge completed across the Red at this point is' seen by the number of teams that daily cross the same. Last Saturday O. C. Olson hired his daughter Lena and son Arthur to stand at the N. P. pump house and count the number of teams that passed over the bridge between 10 a. m. and 6 p. m., who report that the number reached 165, besides 13 men with bicycles.—Drayton Echo. Dr. Muir, who is now president of the Haliock board of health, reports that the quarantine regulations have been suc cessful and no cases are reported outside of Chas. Swanstrom's family.

The diphtheria is all over with but she was not given treat ment until so late that her entire system is run down to such an extent that she may not be able to rally.—Hallock News.

JOHNSON, tf a«tuiv Wl 4VAIY, Fanset and family is deeply regretted by all from the fact that during their long residence in this village—they being the first actual settlers in the-present village of Neche—they have won and retained the highest esteem of the entire com munity. Mr. Fanset located in Neche and engaged in business in 1883, held the office ot postmaster during the .Harrison administration, and since 1895 has man aged the Duluth elevator. -In his vari ous positions of honor and trust he ever conducted himself in a manner to com cand the respect and regard of all with whom he came in contact, and no' man stands higher in the public esteem than does he. The change to a less rigorous climate was made necessary by failing health, and in the event of his recovery from his ailments he may return, as he still possesses valuable property interests in this village.—Neche Chronotype.
