To the Editor of the Northern Pacific Farmer. As I have been a reader of the FARMER ever since its first issue, I rather like to see an item from the town I live in, occasionally. But it appears as though somebody has neglected to have this town repre sented on the page of correspondence, so I thought I would venture a few lines to fill up with. Seeding has finally commenced ground rather heavy. Mr. Bloom had the misfortune to lose a splendid young mare which it took $125 to replace. Mr. Cary sold his farm to Mr. Deane. Consideration $450. Mrs. Arwood returned home last week from New York, where she was visiting during the past winter. Making maple sugar is the order of the day now. Brown and Morical have made 450 pounds, and 12 gallons of syrup, and loaned out syrup enough to make 50 pounds more to some low lived pasilanimous cusses that were too lazy to make for themselves, and too aristocratic to beg. After carrying off all they could they went (all three of them) and pulled the spiles out of about two Kundred CO., Boston, Mags. trees, and bid or carried them away, but one of the cusses dropped his bandanah hankerchiet which was found the next morning and gave the gang away, as one of them was seen using the identical red and speckeled rag the day before. B. and M. took the tracks and tracked them to their den, and it is useless for them to buy or trade for syrup to make a thiefs cloak. I was aware that people have been killed in Todd Co., but didn't think there was any one mean enough to steal sugar. Hay is very scarce and a high price. Stock in this neighborhood winter ed well but will need grass when it comes. Mr. Reese has been plowing for about a week. Go in Mr., It., the early ii cl catches the worm. Mr. Clukey went to Shell Lake fishing, but didn't catch any fish so he brought a duck home with him. HUCKLEBERRY, April 18 th, 1884. WKIGHTSTOWN. Heavy rains of last week put back seeding. Quite a number farmers here haye not begun seeding, owing to the wet condition of their land. Wesley Wright finished seeding over one week ago. Elder Wright is building a large addition to his house this spring. During the dry weather fires ddi quite an amount of damage here, by burning up ienses, &c. Mr. Goodule lost nearly half a mile of fence and Mr. Pattons fence was nearly all burned, and it was only by strenuous efforts that the fire was prevented irom burning his house and granary. Miss Swindlehurst of Wadena ar rived in town yesterday. Will begin her school in District 68, on Monday next. Miss Nancy Perkins left to-day for the Botteimiller District where she has been engaged to teach the sum mer school there. A large amount of maple sugar and syrrup has been made here this spring. E. A. Perkins has made about 100 gallons of fine syrup besides consid erable sugar. Mr. Demo has made over 800 lbs. of sugar, and many others have made nearly as much. P. A. Aldrich and Miss Florance Turner of Parkers Prairie, made us a pleasant call yesterday. Plym is carrying on farming this summer quite heavily. Will put in over 100 acres of small grain Jim Harcom says his son Alfred lost a valuable horse a few da}rs ago under very singular circumstances No cause could be assigned for its death, and the strangest part of it is, he says the horse was paid for and on searching the Town Clerk re cords it was found that there was no chattle mortgage on the horse^-no wonder tfee Jiorse ied/,(S 5 ,fsV T/ School house in Tom Goodale Dis trict has been closed .against religious meetings. Geo. Pennieaml Albert Camell have gone to Port Arthur in Canada. I learn that Mr. Pennie has located there and is building a house. His family will go there in a few weeks. Charley Terryll's father and brother from Faribault arrived here last Friday. They are in the Lightning Rod business. Charley talks of going with them this summer. H. P. Lowe sports a fine buggy while the rest of us have to hoof it. INVISIBLE. May 5th, 1884. Miscellaneous A "Down-East" Yankee reached Thompson Falls the other day, direct from the nutmeg State with $18, that amount representing his entire capi tal. Nothing daunted, he purchased a toboggan for $2, a dozen cans of fresh Eastern oysters at SI per can, aad $4 vmriU of''grub.'** Without a dollar in his pocket he set out dfor Ea gle, where he arrived on the second day. In two hours after he reached there he sold his oysters for $8 pei can and his toboggan for $5, thereby realizing $101 out of the original $18. —Northwest. The Imperial Tree Bean is attract ing very much attention among agri culturists. It is a remarkable pro ducer, and in quality excels the far famed white navy. The Minneapolis Farmers' Tribune, among the many other excellent things ?t is doing to promote good husbandry in the North west, is giving away to its readers packages of the seed of the. Tree Bean. Our readers will be interested in seeing the Tribune's liberal offer. Send for sample copy. A subscriber of Peck's Situ at Tolono, 111., Geo# W. Manley, sends to thisoffhe a postal card on which is copied the "Bad Boy" article and •'Drunk on Candy," of April 19th, in full. This effort required the writ ing of over two thousand and fifty words, every word of which is easily read without the use of a magnifying glass. If everybody had writing down as fine as Mr. Manley there would never have been any need of reducing the price of postage stamps. But thenit would be mighty aggra vating to a lady postmistress to have to spend so much time in reading a single postal card.—Peck's Sun. There is a man in Pawtucket who believes that time is money and that economy is wealth, and who lives up to his convictions. A friend present ed him with a very fine-looking cat. Calling the next day he found the cat without any tail, the tail being cut off as close to the body as could be without cutting the tail off behind the cat's ears. When asked why he had done this, "he remarked," "I have to let this cat in and out of this store a good many times a day. Now, if the cat had along tail, don't you see, I would have to lose so much time waiting for the tail to go out or in, whereas now I have only to wait for the cat. A tail is of no earthly use to a cat, and especially to this cat, so you will see I will have the cat jnst the same, and lose only the time of letting the cat in and out, thus saving all the time that would be lost in let ting the tail in and out."—Western Plowman. Brecken ridge is Visited by Another Disastrous Fire, and Ten Buildings Destroyed. AN INCENDIARY'S WORK. Wednesday morning. April 30th, just four months, lacking a day, from the occurrcnce of the first disastrous fire in Breckenridge, and at the same hour of the night, 3 o'clock a. m., the citizens of our town are called upon to witness the destruction of ten more business buildings. The fire origin ated, or was set in the back room of R. T. Walsh's saloon, on the east end of the block, so that there was little probability that any of the buildings on that block could be saved. The flames were communicated lapidly from one building to another until the space between the Minnesota house and Hason's store was laid bare. The ice house between Walsh's saloon and Fenstemaker's, and hard work kept the fire from spreading on 5th street. The losses sustained were about as follows: Everdell & Valentine, on building, library and fixtures, $2150, O. B. Todd, building, stock and household furniture, $2300. G. W. Arbuckle, building and furniture, $2500. T. O. Leary, building, furniture and stock $1500. L. B. Everdell, meat market building, $800. Real estate, on build ing, $500. R. T. Walsh, saloon, fur niture and stock, $700. F. J. Allstatt building and stock, $800. Dr. Falley library and furniture. $500. E. A. Falley, on building $200. The losses on furniture and stock will be almost entirely covered by insurance, but of course loss will be suffered on buildings burned. R. T. Walsh was badly burned and would undoubtedly have lost his life had it not been for Frank Passage's dog "Maje," who was In the saloon.and went up stairs ta where "Dick" was sleeping and waked him up pawing him ,P'ick drove the dog off once or twice, but the animal kept at him until he got him up. The fire was undoubtedly incendiary there having been no fire in the build* ing for a couple of days, and every thing outside being soaking wet, so as to preclude the possibility of accident al setting. We think that most if not all the buildings will be rebuilt this summer, and some will begin at once.—Wilkin County Retard.

Following is what Manitoba Daily Free Press, at.Winnipeg ia tissue of ApHl 25th. has to say about the Jolly PathUnJera who will beiu Wadena Tuesday and WeUnsday eVonings of next week: There never was a mor^ttleated audience than that which witnessed tlw perforinance of Reut frow's Comedy oomua»r,we Jolly Pathfiuaers, in the Princess Opera ttttWe laet evening. The house was foirly welf Wlfcd-T*he lively interest and uncoutiollanle laughter and applause being unbounded. The company is a remarka bl.v cl* cr one, and has presented**arjety performance, probably never eqnalled3y *uyhitherto present ed in this city. The pnwamme was composed of a choice Gele:tion^lSn otobratic travesties, dramatic burlesques, grwkjfol dancing, comical situations, humorous dialogue, recitation, and some killing puns The fttrodies yrtre of such a wide range as to includerfflmoat everything com ical from "The Sweet Bye," and many popular operatic airs, to ra^Soliloquy of Hamlet and tbe grandiloquent tnlmnces of a hero of a Bowery Theatre. The progm mme open« Vftb ft very laughable anil nut using little que a^fSirce entitled "Rural Simplicity, or the Fool w|WKFamily."

"Scraps or Fun at Jibe lowed. Scraps is 0$ 'designates it It ing and stage strnek recunuons. all of a high burlesque character. Many of the theatrical selections, love-sick utterances and highly pic tured descriptions are modeled after the style of the "Chieago Tribune" Novelettes, and Lakeside Musings. Miss Mm-le Jasper introduced many character sketches. Th.it of a Yorkshire lass in the song "Nobody asked you sir," was particular ly taking, and- received a most hearty encore. Miss Dot Seville met with iipronrions applause in her impersonations nnd burlesques of star actress es and stage-strnck heroines. Miss Mora, in her various operatic selections, proved herself the best singer in the company. Mr. Stillman, as SO%H,cfanfr Bombastic Fureoso," an actor, also delivered some most witty travesties, ranging from Shake spearean characters down to a blood-thirsty pirate in a New York sonsational drama. Mr. Rent frow was probably one of the best comedians in the comprny. He adopted tho role ef "Claude," an ebony servant to the party and created an endless amount of amusement. Hit dancing and stage falls are decidedly worthy ol mention. His impersonation of a wild Indian drew forth from one of the members of the coin pany a laughable appeal and address similar to Mark Twain's at Xiagara. Tbe choruses are all pretty and catching, especially the drinking cho-» rases, which received an encore.
