There is not a business man in Yank ton who is not doing a larger and better business than he was three years ago. There will be a meeting of the fire company at the truck house to-morrow evening. A full attendance is requested. Mr. Balmat, who was a sufferer by Sunday, night's fire has re-opened his saloon "in Biermeyer's place on Capital street. Superintendent Merchant says that as soon as the Sabula bridge is completed through trains will be run from Yank ton to Chicago by way of Sabula, over the line from McGregor to Sabula. Georgie Fisher, ran a large fish hook into his finger this afternoon and Dr. Van Velsor had to pull it through the wound. The operation was a painful one, but was successfully accomplished. Several schemes are on foot for the construction of brick blocks. As there is not a vacant store in town it would seem as though money invested in busi ness buildings would bring a good re turn. The Minnesota Agricultural and Me chanical Association sends us the an nouncement that its annual northwest ern exposition will occur at Minneapolis on the 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th of September. It will be a very pleasant and entertaining affair. Sioux City Journal: The struggle for supremacy in Dakota between the Chicago and Northwestern and Milwau kee and St. Paul roads is being fought in a new locality. The valley of the Sioux is now the theater of operations. The Milwaukee and St. Paul have their men on the ground surveying the valley from Flandreau north to Brookings, on the Northwestern. The latter road takes posession at this point, and will build to Watertown this fall, thus dividing up the territory between them. H. J. Southwick, of Vermillion, has made a proposition to the city authori ties to construct several wells at the crossings of our principal business streets and put in each well a double acting hand pump. He says he can get an un failing supply of water, and that the hand pump and hose will throw streams upon the highest buildings. He pro poses to make these wells and put in the pumps for seventy-five dollars per well and to guarantee that they will come up to his representations. Mr. Southwick has just completed wells for Commodore Coulson, Wm. Miner and L. M. Purdy and has given them from eight to ten feet of puge water. His experience de monstrates that at the river level, which is bed rock, an unfailing water supply can be procured. A special to the St. Paul Pioneer Press from Brookings, Minn., under date of the 2d inst., says that it is an open secret among the engineers and sub-officials of the Chicago and Northwestern rpad that the Block Hills division is not go ing to stop at Deadwood, but is to be carried through to the Pacific ocean. Everything seems to point to this con clusion. The line is being built in the most substantial manner. The rails are of steel, the ties of cedar and the grade reduced to the least possible limit, the heaviest being only fifty-three feet to the utile. After reaching Deadwood there is an opening throngh—the Black Hills and Powder river range of moun tains by way of the north fork of the Cheyenne river into Wyoming. Here are some of tho finest grazing distriots of the coi$ijiepi£aui} a region sadly in want of rcul communications. Said a prominent railroad offloial to your cor respondent'yesterday: "It is folly to suppose we are .building this magnificent roadbed and laying it with Bteel only for the accommodation of the few thousand people at the Blaok Hills." It is to be a great transcontinental route, and will be pushed with all the energy which this company is capable of exercising, A Card. Having organized our society under the name of the Library and Temper ance Society, we are now prepared to welcome our friends and patrons at the old Club room on Cedar street, and wish all to call and see us and we will do our best to entertain you.

Ketclnim having permanently closed his gallery and gone to Fort Pierre, I will not take advantage of being the only Photographer in the city, so will continue to make Card Photos for $2.50 per dozen and Cabinets for $5.00 per dozen.

Peck left Bismarck for Yankton oil the 1st and is now due. The steamer Western will leave Yank ton for Fort Pierre Saturday after the arrival of the tram from the east. The steamer Western arrived this af ternoon from Kosebud landing and will immediately reload for a trip to Pierre. Sioux City Journal, 4th: The ferry boat found the water too thin on the bar off the old boat ways, and yesterday changed hei landing on this side to the gumbo point The government river survey party has arrived in the city from St. Louis, and will begin work on tlie old Muddy to-day. The party will con sist of two engineers, two rodmen and four attendants. The large 30-foot skiff built at this city for the work will be launched to-day, and a smaller 16-foot skiff has been purchased. Hod Vance lias charge of the party and expects to Assinaboine and H. E. Stevens and working party of sixty engineers to im prove the river at Dauphin's rapids. The working part/ have done good service on these rapids, and by low water this fall no doubt tliey will have Dauphin's rapids smooth as glass While the government freight is coming in here pretty lively, the river contractors will nave tonnage enough here before the 10th of August to make a clean sweep of all the freight.

Coulson in company with Capt. N. Beusen, of the steamer Montana, arrived in our city last Satur day. The commodore left for Yankton by the Rose Bud the same day. Capt. Beusen remains here the guest of Supt. Maratta and is taking in the sights. Capt. Beusen will have the Montana here early next spring together with the magnificent steamers Wyoming and Da kota. With his elegant steamer that will be addad to the Coulson line the trade demands more tonnage and this line is never behind. The company' have dis posed of some of the old- boats that for merly made up the line which will be re placed by the new ones under construction The favorite steamer Helena, of the Benton line, after having made the quickest time on record, fourteen days and twelve hours, Bismarck to Fort Ben ton and return, with 290 tons up stream freight, lay over here until the 27tli at 8 p. in., when she left for Fort Benton with a large trip of passengers.

A YanktonUu in Spurt*—The Disastrous Connequenoes of too Much Turkish Iteth. To the Prat and Dakotaian. Sparta, Wisoonsin, Aug. 2,1880.—Not withstanding the oharms and beauties of the boundless Dakota landscape, there is something peculiarly fascinating in the ample foliage of a broken woodland oountry and a summer's sojourn in this delightful locality wheie rooks and for est trees abound gives one anew and re freshing glimpse of nature which sets at naught the theory that life is not worth living. The scenery about Sparta pre sents a diversity of features especially attractive to one who has been accus tomed to the broad expanse of a western prairie where "timber claims" are main ly noticeable from the fact that the growth of buffalo grass is not impeded by the shadow of a single leaf. The famous mineral water for whioh this place is noted and which has proved a panacea for so many bodily infirmities in the attractive par excellence, and num bers of poor mortals who come here full of aches and pains, aud literally "all torn up" with rheumatism and its kind red tortures, go away with health aud strength completely restored. The wat er contains a larger proportion of iron than any water yet discovered in this country and this element, associated with the salts of soda, magnesia lithia, etc., makes it a most powerful tonic and curative agent, especially when taken freely in connection with the Turkish baths. The artesian well and fountain, from which this water flows in a cool nnd inexhaii8table stream, is situated in the court house park immediately oppo site tho Warner house, and here the tired tourist, whether he be sick or well, may moisten his parched lips and drink his till without money and without price, as the fountain is open and free to all. In tho basement of the hotel a commo dious bathing establishment is in full blast, where the famous "Turkish bath" is given in all its perfection. Ladies only are admitted to these baths in the fore noon. After 3 p. m. individuals of the sterner sex are rubbed and scrubbed and pounded and spanked and soaked, and then laid away to dry until supper time. Did you ever take a Turkish bath Of course yon have hundred of 'em— but if you know of any one who has not yet indulged in this healthful luxury tell him to go at once and take one. It will make him feel so much better acquainted with himself, and if he never felt quite thoroughly respectable, his life, it will give him anew sensa tion. There is probably nothing else in the world excepting, perhaps a railroad pass that can so effectually inspire man with a realizing sense of his own personal majesty and importance, and then it produces such a Ileal thy glow and develops the muscle and "cheek' to such an extent that one like myself, nat urally gentle and docile becomes utterly demoralized and wants to break some thing, or tear up the sidewalk, or fight his grandmother or something equally desperate. New finish the work to the mouth Year's. Bismarck Tribune, July 30: The Pe niuali, of the contract line, is due from Keogh Aug. 2d, and will load for Coal Banks The Key West arrived at Ben ton yesterday. She will leave Benton on the 31st and will arrive August 3d...

She will leave here again for Ft. Benton August 2d The Big Horn arrived at Keogh Wed nesday evening. She left Keogh for Bismarck yesterday and will arrive Sat urday and leave immediately for the Yellowstone Steamer Gen. Terry left for Coal Banks on the 24th at 10 p. m., with 230 tons of freight for Fort A few days ago during a brief "heated term" when it. was too hot for earth and only a trifle cooler than the reputed temperajpre of another popular resort a couple of honest old grangers both life-long victims of the "rheumatiz1 came out of the bath house and walked up the street feeling refreshed and reju viuated, and as jolly and "chipper" and saucy as you please. The^vnest old grangers had been friends andneighbor for years, and shoulder to shoulder had fought the musquitoes and rheumatism in the swamps of Monroe county. Polit ically they did not entirely agree, to be sure, but then they never quarrelled, and each accorded to the other the right to his opinion, which iB the priceless boon of American citizenship. With a laudable thirst for usetul in formation I accosted this party of twe and made inquiry as to the official state of the thermometer. One was willing to swear that it liaiinot been above ninety two in this'county since 1863, while the other said he had seen it ninety-six in the shade. Old granger number 1 said he guessed old granger number 2 must be mistaken. Old granger number 2 mildly remarked that he probably know lion' to read figures, and that his eyesight was tolerably good if he had not held a county ofliee. O. g. number 1, observed with a sweet smile that possibly his friend's thermom eter might be out of repair, or perlmpx it hung in a position where it might be influenced by reflected heat. O. g. number 2, said he thought likely he could tell sunshine from shade, and that when his thermometer got out of tune he could probably find it out without the help of any old line whig. O. g. number 2, said there was no use trying to run this thing into politics, that there was no occasion for getting excited over a little difference of opinion on sucli a trivial matter. O. g. No. 2 remarked that he'd be dash blanked if ho was going to have his word questioned by any blank dashed old bald-headed Mormon that couldn't hold a ten-foot calf-pasture in his own name. O. g. No. 1 replied sorrowfully that he was very sorry that he had used bis in fluence to get o. g. No. 2 out of states prison, and advised him to brace up and go to work and earn money enough to get his cow out of the pound. O. g. No. said that any man that said that he said what he hadn't said was a dash blanked double dashed lyiu' old hypo crite and he'd work night and day to beat him next election. Then followed a hot discussion as to whether Garfield or Hancock mutilated Cadet Wliittakcr's ears, and inside of twenty minutes they were fighting aud scratching and the crowd grew larger and larger until final ly the city marshal came along and took them in. At stilly dawn on the following morn ing a three-inch Scliuttler wagon with two humble looking farmers engaged in deep conversation disappeared over the eastern hills, nnd the little birds-flow down to gather up the soft gray hairs that strewed the silent street. Those two neighbors have never taken Turk ish bath since that eventful day. You may thiuk this littlo Spartan story is not strictly oredible, but I don't care, to argue on this matter. A state Sunday school convention is now in session here and all good people who are interested in the Sunday school work are invited to participate in the de liberations. Bev. Jesse D. Hurlbut of Plainfield, N. J. oouduets the meetings, assisted by Henry Plant, Esq., of Minne apolis and Rev. E. L. Eaton of Boloit. These gentlemen have iqpde the Sunday school their special study, and will give the people of this locality new methods and advanced ideas on the subject of Christian education.
