October The result of the election in Indiana and Ohio is joyfully received by repub licans and gloomily received by the dem ocrats,. This oondition of the political & mind indicates the direction in which the elections tend. Indiana everywhere shows republican gains and such a result presages democratic de feat in November. Comparisons are made this year, in Indiana, on the vote of 1876, when the democratic candidate carried the state by over 5,000 majority. If the same ratio of gains continues, Indiana will come in as a republican state in this important presidential year. But it is possible that the "back counties" will check the flood of republican gains and that the demo crats will carry the state by a small majority. This is all republicans hoped to accomplish aud it is all they need. A reduced demo cratic majority in Indiana at the Octo ber election means a republican victory in November, as surely as the sun rises and sets on election day. In Ohio the republicans return large gains, and it is probable that the state has gone republican by an increase of not less than 10,000 majority over the vote of 1879, when Foster received be tween 3,000 and 4,000 over his democrat ic, greenback and prohibition compet itors. The result in both of these states is full of encouragement to republicans. It gives them something upon which to base a certain hope of victory in Novem ber, when the solid north will go to the polls and say to the solid south that it shall not rule this nation. An address, directed to the business men, manufacturers and mechanics of Ohio and Indiana, was circulated and largely signed by the business firms of Chicago on Monday. It requested them to vote the republican ticket in order that the present prosperous condition of business and manufactures might not be disturbed, and that the democratic party, which is declared to be a party of repu diation and dishonor, might not be given the reins of power. The address was signed by J. V. Farwell & Co., M. C. Henderson & Co., Franklin McVeagh, Durand Bros., W. T. Baker & Co., and a hundred or more others equally promi nent. Secretary Schurz has a letter from Spotted Tail, in which the writer pleads that the six young men sent to Omaha for trial jjjjp murder and other outrages have a trial and be furnished good law yen) like the white men.

It is reported tlAt there were five hun dred dollars in gold in a trunk which was burned with the car and other con tents on the Northern Pacific last Satur day night. A farmer near Tower City threshed 1,900 bushels of wheat from eighty acres of land and another farmer from the same neighborhood threshed 2,600 bushels from ninety acres—first crop. The hook and ladder company of Far go, No. 1 Hard are making arrangements for a grand ball next New Years Eve to excel in completeness anything of the kind ever attempted in Fargo. Times: The Fargo water-works con tractor has been unfortunate. A land slide has caused the walls of the engine house to crack so badly that it will have to be torn down and moved to another site. Work on the reservoir has also been very much retarded on account of the ground caving in. Col. Thompson, living near Bismarck, has just finished harvesting his pota toes, and, according to the Sun, by actual measurement they produced eight hundred bushels to the acre. The only cultivation they received was twice plowing and weeds cut with a hoe. The tops were entirely eaten off by cattle when in a growing and vigorous condi tion, and the ground tramped over them so hard as to induce the colonel to be lieve the crop was ruined.

By hard work on the part of our citizens and railroad boys, the flames were stopped. Milbank Review: The presumption that lias all along been entortained, that Milbank would eventually be made the end of a division of the H. & D. railway is now definitely settled by the official announcement of the foot and, also, that a large roundhouse will be built here.

These facts permit us to truthfully re mark that every married editor in I)ako ta or Dixon counties, can now boast of a new baby this season. Excepting one, viz: good old Father Martin of the Ar gus. JOURNALISTIC AMENITIES. San Francisco PoBt. The unsophisticated readers of those influential journals doubtless imagine that the editors of the Vallejo Vengeance and Petaluma Peavine are bitter and ferocious foes. It ia quite possible that neither of these gentlemen would speak to the other in their respective towns for untold wealth: it would spoil the ef fect of the terrible personal denuncia tions indulged in throughout each issue of their respective patent insides. But away from the glare of the rustic eye the scene is entirely changed. These war riors of the flowing pen met in San Fran cisco last week and took lunch together —something of almost weekly occur rence, we understand. Happening to occupy the next box to the twain in the restaurant, we naturally overheard some of the conversation. "How is it, my dear old boy, that you called me a putrid pirate of perdition only twice in your paper yesterday?" asked the Peavine man, reproachfully. "It was hardly the square thing, when I designated you as a scalawag of the nether slums four times on Wednesday." "It was entirely through the stupidity of my assistant, dear old friend. I wrote with my own hand a half-column leader headed 'The Crawling Reptile Squirms Again,' but a high rate circus ad came in and crowded it out," replied the Ven geance proprietor. "That was tough luck," sighed the Pea vine director, sawing away on his chop. "I felt it all the more, as that very day I announced that you had served two terms in Sing Sing for burglary, and there was no doubt of your having de serted three wifes in Texas." "Just like your kind of thoughtlul ness," returned the other moulder of public thought as he ordered more cof fee "X was also exceedingly gratified and touched by your article of Sunday last, to the effect that I committed forgery at nineteen and that my mother was a col ored woman." "Oh, don't mention it, old fellow be sides, didn't you say the day before yes terday that I cheated a blind widow out of her last cent and was ridden on a rail inNew York for infanticide." There was a moment of retrospective silence, during which both cronies were too full of emotion to speak. Finally the Vallejo man said sol'lly: "I didn't mean to tell you, old man in fact, I intended it as a pleasant sur prise but the truth is I am working up a superb item connecting you with the Nathan murder, with absolute proofs, and affidavit of a confession, said to have been made by you when sick in the pen itentiary for arson." "Heaven bless you dear boy! I don't know how I'd get along without you at these dull times. However, to-morrow I'll complete a beautiful little thing I have been working up, proving you to be the younger Bender and appealing to the vigilance committee to turn out. I'll send you a proof." And paving for their checks the two allies lit cigars and walked off, ana in DIED ATTHE POST OF DANGER. The engineer of a train near Montreal saw a large dog on the track. He was barking furiously. The engineer blew his whistle at him but he did not stir, and crouching low he was struck by the locomotive and killed. There was a bit of white muslin on the locomotive and it attractak the attention of the en gineer, who stopped the train and went back. There lay the dead dog and a dead child, which had wandered upon the track and had gone to -sleep. The dog had given his signal to stop the train and had died at his post. NOV IT MC«K .||UTIUTED. A mutilated 95 rote was received at the treasury from Marion oonnty, Indi ana. and redeemed. Aooompanying it was'the following affidavit:' Before me, John Eacott, a notory pub lic in and for said county and ft ate, comes Walter Rivers, who, being duly sworn, deposes and my* that on or about the 2d day of September, "1880, in the city of Indianapolis, a dog owned by de ponent did feloniously and with malice intent seized a 95 bill. No. B25M60, series 1875, and bank No. 40, and after ohawing off the right hand lower corner and the entire left hand edge of the aforesaid bill, and in spite of Ml due ef forts on the part of said deponent suc ceeded in swallowing the same and no amount of after effort in choking the aforesaid dog availed to reoover the torn portion of said bill and furthermore deponent declares said dog to be duly licensed by the city of Philadelphia un der No. 187, taxes paid in full to May 1, 1881, and seeks to obtain from the hon orable treasurer of the United States all §ollar roper relief in the shape of a new five William. The new bill was sent. COUGHS.—"Broum'i Bronchial Trochet" are used with advantage to alleviate COUGHS, SORE THROAT, HOABSENBSS and BRONCHIAL AFFECTIONS. For thirty years these Troches have been in use, with annually increasing favor. They are not new and untried, but, having been tested by wide and constant use for nearly an entire generation, they have attained well-merited rank among the few staple remedies of the age. THE THROAT.—"Broan't Bronchial Troche»" act direotly on the organs of the voice. They have an extraordinary effect in all disorders of the Throat and Larynx, restoring a healthy tone when relaxed, either from oold or over-exer tion of the voice, and produce a clear and distinct ennunciation. Tpeakern and Singer* find the Troches useful. A COUGH, COLD, CATARRH or Sore Throat requires immediate attention, as neglect oftentimes results' in some in curable Sling Disease. "Brown's Bron chial Troches" will almost invariably give relief. Imitations are offered for sale, many of which are injurious. The genuine "Bronchial Troche»" are sold only in boxes. yt rn. iriuNfoir'N Soothing Syrup. Rev. Sylvanus Cobb thus writes in the Christian Freeman:—We would by no means recommend any kind of medicine which we did not know to be good—par ticularly for infants. But of Mrs. Wins low's Soothing Syrup we can speak from knowledge in our own family it has proved a blessing indeed, by giving an infant troubled with colic pains, quiet sleep, and the parents unbroken rest at night. Most parents can appreciate these blessings. Here is an article which works perfection, and which is harmless for the sleep which it affords the infant is perfectly natural, and the little cherub awakes as "bright as a button." And during the process of teething, its value is incalculable. We have frequently heard mothers say that they would not be without it from the birth of the child till it had finished with the teething seige, on any consideration whatever.
