There was a quiet social gathering at the residence of Dr. Ward Taesday eve ning. Politicians are beginning to seieot the ait offioes they desire to ooeppy daring the eneaing year. Prof. W.H. Allmon'a' danomg class meets for the last time at the Morrison house this evening. To-day's weather is bright and en« oouragiDg to the development of pre monitions of sprios. Alarget»ia load of live stook will leave Yankton on Saturday over the Northwestern for Ohioago. The temperanoe campaign oommittee appointed last night will meet at the M. E. oh a roll to-morrow ni^ht. This was the day for considering the United States oonrt bill in the oounoil. Nothing has been heard from the soene of tronble. The Philharmonios meet on Saturday evening in the Congregational oharoh. All persons interested |are oordlally in vited to be present. The tram from np the Jim which came in over the flailwftukee last night was well spattered with snow and looked as though it had run the blockade. The packing house killed 250 hogs yesterday and is paying $4.70 to $5,00 for hogB to-day. They will ran daring Maroh as long bb weather will permit. Qeneral Beadle, who was in Parker a couple of days ago, says that oity is enjoying a temperance boom which premises to grow to Yanktonian pro portions. A lady's fan and a brown Bilk mitten were left at the residence of J. B. Sac born on Taesday evening by some one of the party who attended the reception, Please oall for them. Receipts of hogs have been larger to day than usual, bat the supply ui not equal to the demand. Tankton and Oedar ooanties should doable their hog product next season. The lots whioh the board of trade bad ita bye on for its contemplated building have bedo withdrawn from the market on aocoant of the approaohisg boom and the board of trade will have to look else where. Sinoe the 7ankton postofflce became •eoond class the government, in theory, pays the rent, bat the aotaal cash is not forthooming and Mr. Fargo is taking •top* to see what be can do aboat it As he now owns the Hxtiires, as well as thebailding.heappears be master of the ait nation. If tho government does not pat np he can shut up and Yankton woald then be minas a post offioe. Captain Tanner found the people of Sioax Falls enthusiastic over the Da lath and Denver railroad. They told the oaptain it was coming sure and they knew it irom the best authority. It was settled that. Jim Hill was behind the movement and he was going to pasb the road to Denver.as qaiokly as possible. Oaptain D. W. O. Tanner, who visited Sioux Falls yesterday, oonveys the in telligence that a howling blizzard com manded the atte&tion of the people along the main line of the Milwaukee road yesterday. All the trains* going east over the line were detained by the storm from one to three hoars and the ther mometer indicated low temperatare. The Bariington, Oedar Bapids and Northern writes Major Hanson that it will build no new road this year, on ao coant of the inter-state commerce bill and the letter adds that none of the roads will extend at present, for the aame reason. This road is dangerously near Canton and threatens to bnlld to that oity and from there to Ceutreville. Bat if Major Hanson's letter is truthful it will stay where it is. J. M. B. Floyd, of Sionx Oity, who is in YanktoB to-day, has just concluded an aotion against the Illinois Central for damages to the amount of $60,000 for injuries received in a wreok near Storm Lake. Eleven jurors were in favor of giying. him all the way from $9,000 to the amount olaimed, but the twelfth man refused to concede anything in the way of damages aDd the jury reported a disagreement and a new trial will be had. Mr. Floyd was veiy seriously in jured anil for a month hung between life and death. The nsnal interest in the temperanoe oaase was manifested at last nights gather ing at the Methodist ohuroh It was pare ly a political gathering,brought together for the purpose of discussing oity poli tics and preparing for aotion in relation thereto. A large committee of ladies and gentlemen was appointed who are intrusted with the duty of selecting candidates for oity officers. This com mittee is to be meet Friday evening and formulate a plan. Many of the aotive temperanoe workers did not favor a purely temperanoe tioket, independent of other considerations, while others did. So the matter was left nndeoided and subsequent consultations mast deter mine the question. The proposed Dalath & Denver rail road extension from Sioux Falls soath westward via Yankton woald. prove a most profitable line of traffio to oar Sioax Falls neighbors. Building stone is the staple article of wealth to that community and the proposed road would tap a region entirely destitute of building stone all the way from Sioux Fails into Wyoming. Sionx Falls' pres ent railroad lines rah in the direotion of other quarries, exoepting the one down the Sioux Valley and that is mere ly a looal line. The Denver extension would invade a oonntry absolutely destitute of stone quarries and open op to Sioax Falls an extensive market in whioh there would be no competition. P. Hollenbeok, assistant general sup erintendent of the Ohioago & North western railway,, and J. E. Blunt, ohief oivil engineer for that road, have spent to-day f.a Yankton, but for what purpose there is no telling. A reporter met the gentlemen at the Northwestern depot this morning, bat they woald say noth ing more than that they were looking over the road, When the newspaper man addressed them farther they bade him good morning, and vanished within tbt* secret passages of Mr. Hollenbeok's oar and then. p. man-stood out in the snow and admired the outside decora tions of the luxurious vehicle.

FROM IHE SOUTH The Speculation Craze Seen through Cool Plbots Mpccs. .On the Boad, Feb. 21—If per mitted by the jolting of this fast train from Chattanooga to Atlanta, I will amnse myself, if not my friends, by writing some notes of the last three daya. I reached the former oity late at night finding every hotel bed pre empted and mostly ooonpied .by the horde of hangry investors and speculators from the north. Of oourse you have heard of this tremendous boom in oity property. It has been running higher and higher for a year, without a deoline or pause and now it is blown to a height and expansion that makes oaatiuus heads grow dizzy and fearfal. Having no money I felt safe to stay while listening to the apparently insane trans actions, and watching this wonderful soramble for sadden wealth, as a great moial cariosity of human life. i: The fact is, Ohattanooga has beoome a great town,—great in population, manufactures, railroadgoom&ieroe, com fort, health, fruit, mineral reaouroea, climate and wealth. But she now has something greater than all these,— namely expectations of being the Oinain nati or Philadelphia of the whole south. Her real estate men boldly advanoe this idea, and by spending their thousands here, they bet their pile on the result. And strange Jo say, the monied men of the country are Booking here and betting their millions on the same side. Over seventy-five real estate agents advertise heavily in the morning's sixteen page Daily Times. All acre property within ten miles is the subject of wild specula tion,and every civil engineer is swamped with work, laying oat new additions and suburbs, It is a common thing to be shown a lot or tract, no better than a thousand others in town, whioh has been sold six or eight times in a few months or weeks, at suoh saooessive jumps as these: $2400, 3000, 6000, 8000, 12,000 17,000. Most dealers are angry at having sold too oheap last fall, and say that although they made twenty thous and or so by selling, yet they lost a good deal more than that by not holding on till cow. Some think this may go on a year or two longer, bat others expect a orash. My old friend of war times who lives here, is one of the solid leading men of the oity. He partially or whollv owns and manages a great flooring mill, a oar factory, aa iroa mine and furnaoe at another plaoe, a Bessemer steel farnaoe here, and other enterprises. He is one of five who seoared 150 aores on top of Lookout mouutaiu some time ago, for about $1900, and are now realizing $2000 and upward for each aore they sell. He has projeoted and nearly oompieted an inclined railroad np the faoe of the mountain to the foot of palisade oliff at the top. There a dummy traok begins, runs, along the faoe of the oliff on higher and higher treaties, and at last sur mounts the top and runs the whole leugth of the mountain, 1600 feet above the Tennessee river below. Their in clined road has a doable traok, every tie bedded in broken rook, unless spanning ohasms, with a wire oable running over palleys. Yesterday I saw the engine at the bottom pall the oonstraotion oar up the traok, whioh iB 4,200 feet long, with a vertical rise of 1,3C0 feet. The Blope is 30 deg. part of the way. It oost aboat $100,000 Aad will be ready for baBiaess in a month or so. This friends says he expeots this great era of town-lot speculation, (which rages also in Birmingham, Ala., even higher than here, and more or less affeots all other parts of the country except Yank ton,) is bat the prelade to a great com mercial eraah and that all prudent men will do well, to keep their feet under them, well planted on something solid. But to show how his theory and praotice agree, and that he means to hold his dish so as to oatoh this golden shower while it lasts, I may mention that last night be met with his monied friends, who, to the number of about twenty, are organizing a oompany with $12,000, 000 stock to bay ap all the wild and in accessible lands just over the river, make then accessible by good bridges, and go on selling rooky building sites and glori ous prospects at from one to five thous and eaoh as many are now doing. On my first day here I walked out papt the great Methodist university, built by friends of the freedmen, where freedmen are exoluded from ednoation past Fort Wood, in excellent preserva tion past Orohard Knob, a rooky hill dotted with pines from whioh Orant watohed and directed the terrible storming ict Mission ridge, whioh lies one or two miles farther out across the broad valley. The ridge has a slightly undulating orest five to eight miles long, very narrow at tide top and very steep on the side toward the oity. I estimate it to be over 500 feet high on its front faoe, well timbered, dotted with a few fine houses on the orest whioh is reached by expensive, well graded roads. Two splendidly graded and maoadamized aven.ues stretch three Tailes straight to the oity. The rooky, barren, andalating ground was being surveyed every where into additions, and new stakes shine in nearly every field,- peaoh grove and swamp olear to the foot of the ridge. I had a hot, rainy, fatiguing olimb,bat 1 easily fouud my way to the splendid building site of nearly ten acres bought last summer by our friend Dr. Milter, with Harry VanTasael's similar tract be side it. They are long and narrow, and hang aoross the rooky ridge some like a pair of stookinga aoross a fence. Ao adjacent tract belongs to Dr. Htutenrotb, who three weeks ago was a dentist at Watertowpj Dakota, bat is now a real estate dealer at Ohattanooga, with wealthy and experienced partner. Dr. 8. and I were at the depot last eve ning and welcomed Mr. VanTassel and listened with broad grins of selfish satis faeton to taleq of blizzards, blockades and other blown at the prosperity of the north. Harry goes to New Orleans, ti en bao'* here Ooanty Treaiaiw. 1 and home. The.torturing questions, how long to hold on and how much to ask for land, agitate our three Dakota friends as well as others. Dr. Miller bought.for aotaal residence but may do otherwise. Whether to aooept present offers and doable the pile or risk holding on to treble it is a.conundrum and I give it ap, Harry brings a dim rumor of good news for Yankton's fatttre boom, but in the deafening boom of this country we can hardly hear or notioe it. The spring weather is delightful, though rainy and muddy at times. The city streets are shookiDg, bat the bloom ing crocuses, hyacinths and naroissns in the gardens, the great japonioa bashes flaming in fall soarlet and the little yel low jasmines are good for our eyes, yet dazzlt and weak from northern snow and sleet, A.

Par* sons. Under the heading "an audience en tranced by the absorbing eloquence of the speaker,'the Philadelphia Press says: "Parsons is undoubtedly an orator of deep and trae eloqaenoe of force and varied originality. "Ho possesses a voioe of oommanding power and bis words fell with an ease an graoe that untirely absorbed the atten tion of bis audience. From the first at teranoe to the last all eyes were fixed upon the lecturer and when he le't the stage with a low bow you could have heard a pin drop, to entranced were bis hearerd. It is an absolute impossibility to do credit to Mr. Parsons and the manner in whioh he handles his sabjeot." The Enquirer says: A more magnifi cant oration has been seldom delivered in this oity than that to whioh the de lighted assembly listened. The opening cf the ieoture seemed like the opening of a delightful romanoe. The lecture from beginning to end wa) in itself a masterly production and the oratory of Mr. Parsons showed him to be one of the most eloquent, both by nature and by cultivation, of the many eloqaent elo cutionists who have deolaimed from the stage of the aoademy. Where Their Merit Lie*. -1| When anything stauds a test of fifty years amoDg a discriminating people like the Amerioans it. is pretty good evi dence that there is merit somewhere.

They. have never been known to fail in their work they have never oaased any one the slightest inoon vcnienoe, no matter when taken, and there is little donbt that they have really Baved thousands of lives.
