It is surprising to know that the play was
arranged in detail, stage effects, drilling of
participants, etc., entirely among partic
ipants, without outside help. There were
three stage scenes, the old North Carolina
home of the Rogers s, the studio of the
Desmond's, and the saloon of the Rogers',
the two last being located in Paris, and
the transformation of eaoh was complete,
not a single article of stage furniture ap
pearing in any two scenes. The parlor
scene was particularly elegant, considering
the cramped stage room, the illusion of a
v brilliant parlor opening into a spacious
ball room being complete. But the suc
cess of the agoesaories -was but aside effect,
the acting was the main source of the suc
cess. Dr. F. L. Smith, as the . old mao
Rogers, completely hid his own identity,
and became to the simple, honest.old man,

- LETTER FROM MINNESOTA.
Clearwater, Minn., March 28, 1883.
To give your readers some idea of the
emigration into Dakota this season I will
quote a few items from the latest issues of
the Sleepy Eye Herald. Here is an item
in the issue for March 10th :
"At least eight hundred passengers pass
ed this station going west on Thursday.
Two trains were filled to their utmost ca
pacity, many ladies being obliged to stand
in the aisle."
From the issue for March 17th :
"The nisrht passenger train coiner west
has been from two to five hours kite nearly
every night, owing to heavy loads. Every
train has six or seven coaches and baggage
and express cars."
From the issue of March 24th, which I
have just received, are these items :
"Winona Republican, March 19th : One
thousand cars loaded with emigrants, stock
and emigrants' movables, were moving
west toward Central Dakota on the Winona
and St. Peter railroad this morning."
"One hundred and twenty-five car loads
of stock and emigrants' movables passed
this station every day during the past
week, all bound tor JJakota and western
Minnesota. This number is all the road
can handle with the present facilities."
"Eight new engines have been placed on
the Winona and St. Peter road recently,
for use during the present busy season.
The engines belong to the Omaha line, and
are only loaned to this line. They are
strong and powerfully built, and are able
to haul a larger train than any of the other
From accounts given it appears that it is
an intelligent and enterprising class, most
ly Americans, from the older states who are
in this stream of human life which is flow

two great states, and it will not be long
before it either. The northern as well as
the southern part of the territory is rapidly
