Are we to have a fire company, or
|-not? This is an important question
for every citizen to ask himself, and it
is one that cannot be put off it must
be decided promptly, and we would
urge every resident, merchants, law
yers, tradesmen, in fact every body
that has a dollar invested, to take
personal interest in this matter. It is
criminal to have so little protection
from our greatest peril, when a few dol
lars judiciously expended would lessen,
if it did not entirely remove the im
pending danger. We are not advocat
ing this measure because it is a hobby,
we are not exposed to greater danger
than others, neither are we writing for
the sake of saying something. We are
in earnest. Something must be done,
and done at once! If we can only have
a temporary organization, let us have
it by all means. Any thing is a great
ways ahead of nothing.
Three years makes but little differ
dice in older communities, but on the
frontier the changes are more apparent.
Three years ago last Friday, a dance
was held in the old Central house, in
which about ten or twelve couple par
ticipatcd, and it seemed then quite a
gathering. Only one set could "form
on" at one time, in tlx old dining-room,
then one of the largest rooms in town.
One violinist, or fiddler, perched in the
corner, and made music for the occa
sion. The dance was public to all,
yet only the number above mentioned
were present, being very nearly every
young couple in town. Now note the
change, last Friday evening a select par
ty composed of the members and invit
ed guests of the Masonic lodge, assem
bled in one of our large halls, and al
though none were present excepting
those invited, yet nearly one hundred
.couples participated. The main hall
was devoted to the ceremonies of the
evening, and a banquet was spread in
the hall adjoining, and over eighty
couples were seated at the tables at
one tim^. The change is remarkable
and wonderful, the ladies' toilets, the
music, the well filled tables, the spa

Truly, this is a wonderful country, andl Redemption Fund
the following: In the Irst place, we|
I at the same time add from five to fif
teen cents per bushel to the price of
our wheat. All this could be done by
this line of road, and it can readily be
seen why it ould work Mich a benefit:
In the first place, our wheat is taken
Ito St. Paul or Minneapolis, then re
shipped via Duluth to the east. A di
rect line would save on the freights
from five to ten cents per bushel, it
would give us a better market, as once
our wheat was at Duluth, we could
get within a cent or two of Chicago or
Milwaukee prices. Tfcen again we
would have the benefit of the fine
tracts of timber through which this
projected line would pass cheaper fuel
and lumber would be the result. Many
of the counties named have no
railroad facilities, they need them, and
will doubtless willingly pay their pro
portion of a bonys to the company
building the line. We do not hesitate
in saying that Stevens county, would
willingly-do its share, for the residents
of this county will, with a good crop,
probably ship seven or eight hundred
thousand bushels of wheat during the
coming season. We could afford to
give ten cents per bushel, §80,000 as
a bonus, and then would be on the
w heat crop alone, $40,000 the gainers,
to say nothing of the increase in value
of lands, cheap lumber, provisions,
fuel, &c., &c. We expect to receive
some communications on this subject
from one or two of our residents who
are interested in this scheme.
According to a correspondent in the
Swift Co. Advocate the Murphey
family are so numerous that it is neces
sary to number them. The writer
apologises in the following manner:
la speaking of the suit against the school
district last week, we inadvertently spoke
of Mr. Murphy No. 5. This was a mistake,
it is No. 2 who is doing the lawing. Mr.
Murphey No. 5 is a man who strictly at
tends to business, and has no occsifeion to
go to law with any one.
Minneapolis Tribune.
A cargo of Minnesota win at lias arrived
at Barcelona, Spain, the-- ti»t«American
grain ever landed at tlu.t port. It. Consist
ed cf 70,000 bushels, and was transported
Liu. aa English vessel at a cost of $18,000, or
I tweuty five cents a bushel. It was pro
nounced equal to any wheat ever received
in Spain, and forthwith steps were taken to
increase the importation direct from Ameri
ca, notwithstanding the fact that Black Sea
wheat is nui^li mare accessible. It is a
pity that this trade cannot be increased so
that this country shall receive the utmost
benefit without paying twenty-five cents on
every bushel to English ship owners.

Dakota line. The proposed route be
