Our settlement has been treating itself te fires since writing you before, having had three small ones—Ben Welch, N. J. Palmer, and Mrs. Ken yon, all the result of trying to warm up the house. No damage done. We see by the paper that there is a comet going to strike our planet this sum mer that will warm things up at a great rate. Now, if the tail of that comet would just brush this latitude just now and warm it up st-veral (leg rees, we should feel thankful.

The owner of lots on a street in Denver, upon which lie had erected a iiotel and dwelling house, sued the Union Pacific Railroad Company to recover damages for the injury to his property by the laying of its track in the street. This track was putt!own 18 1-^ feet from the pavement, and above the level of the street, so that wagons could not freely pass to and I'rom the houses. The company set up as its defense that the truck had been laid by virtue of an ordinance which granted it the right of way through the street. The plaintiff re covered a judgement for SI,8-50 in this case—Malandin vs. Union Facific Railroad Company—in the United States Circuit Court for Colorado. Judge Hallct. in the opinier, said: "The right and interest of the plain tiff in the street in front of his prop erly is secured to him by section 75 of the Uill of Rights of the State con stitution, which declares 'that private property shall ot be taken or dam aged for public or privat use without just compensation.' It has been paid that property cannot be 'taken' with the mc-aning of that provision ex cept by an appropriation of the land itself, but no such limitation is appli cant to the clause relating to dam ages. The beneficial use of plaintiffs estate embraces the right of ingress and egress, which cannot be with drawn or obstructed without subset m lial damage to it. The use of the street is therefore aright of property in plaintiff, which if not 'taken,' is certainly 'damaged,' within the mean ing of the constitution, by the act of defendant in building its road through M10.street."—Baltimore Day Excerpts.

To the Editor of the Northern Pacific Farmci: Please allow me a little space in your columns to make a few sugges tions. Now that our town is nearly all settled up, and that almost every person will have to make pastures or herd their slock, why cannot we have a herd law in the town of Wadena? It costs the farmer immense sums eve year to repair fences around his crops, and now that there are many fences just rotting down that will have to be repaired at a great expense, to fence in the crops, while it would not cost one-tenth as much to fence in the stock, there being but little stock in the township. Let us take a vote on the question at the coming election and vote a herd law for this township. Yours, etc., minutes of Smith." Life is like a pack of cards.
