The Supreme Court Hands Down
Another Batch of Decisions.
Four decisions were yesterday filed in
the supreme court. They were:
Stale of Minnesota, appellant, vs. John
Hunter. Case remanded. Collins, J.
A pre-emptory claimant, under the
laws of the United States, made final
proof, paid for his land and received
from the proper officer a final
receipt of certificate. Subsequently,
the commissioners of the gen
etal land office suspended
further proceedings in regard to such
entry, solely because of an irregularity
in the method of making said final
proof, and directed that further proof
be submitted. Held, that as against
the pre-emptor the land was subject to
taxation from the date of the receipt,
notwithstanding the fact that the order
in respect to further proof had not been
complied with. The case is remanded
to the district court, with instructions
to enter judgment against the tract in
question, with interest, penalties and
costs, as by law provided.
As to Contracts.

will hereafter, on demand, convey the
property by good and sufficient deed in
fee simple, must have a perfect little

RUN WITH THE HOUNDS.
A Big Time In Prospect With the
Walter C. Corey and James H.Moran,
two English residents of Sibley, 10.,
were in the city yesterday rounding up
the English residents here for partici
pation in a grand wolt hunt to occur in
Osceola county, lowa, on the 20th
of this month. Mr. Corey reports
that wolves are thicker on the
Ocheydan range this season
than for many past. Many
very enjoyable runs have been had
since the coyotes began to get hungry,
and prospects arc good for excellent
sport during the remainder of the win
ter. Invitations to join in the grand
meet on the date mentioned will be ex
tended to everyone who can procure a
mount for the occasion, and the indica
tions are that there will be 300 lovers of
a cross-country jaunt in attendance.
The Sibley fox-hounds are a famous
pack, the kennels being always an in
teresting feature of the place "to visitors
with" a taste for sport. There is said to
be but little snow on the range, in
which case a day with the Sibley hounds
will be a most enjoyable thing.

be shot. Accidents of a similar charac

the accident of last night was not fatal,
is due only to a fortunate chance.

How a Charming Jjuly Allowed,
a Fatal Trouble to Come Upon
"Nearly every one of mv friends has a
This remark was made to a party of friends
by an attractive lady who resides on Forty
fourth street, New York. That evening she
felt a tickling in her throat, a slight pain
across the chest, and she coughed once or
twice. -The next day 6he was tired and de
spondent and had much diflicultv in breath
ing. To-day she is suffering from quick
consumption and can live, it is feared, only
a short time. Her experience is a sad one",
but. unfortunately, it is the same that thou
sands of others are passing through. Such
troubles should not be neglected.
Nature needs help. It MUST be helped,
and that promptly. In but one wav can this
be done, and that is by the use of a pure
stimulant, which drives out the germs of dis
ease before they become fixed upon the sys
tem. This is what Duffy's Pure Malt Whisky
does. It is a stimulant to the organs that
have been con gested by cold. It arouses the
tissues to fresh action. - It wards off disease,
and. containing no fusel oil. does not injure.
It is used by the leading people of the land.
A prominent lady, writing on this subject,
says: "I have watched the faces of ladies
very carefully for many years, and on nearly
every one have seen either lines of care or
unhappiness, swollen eyelids, dark lines
around them, or some equally certain evi
dence of ill-health and unhappiness. lam a
firm advocate of temperance, but I believe
ladies should take some good tonic or stimu
lant, and something, too, that is known to be
pure and reliable. I have tried Duffy's Malt
and have been benefited by it, aud, while 1
do not advocate its use by all, I think very
