The weather has been quite cold
the past week and though at times
below freezing there was no frost ,
excepting a very light one last Sat
urday evening , but was melted be
fore morning so that there was no
damage done to crops. Sunday
night there was a mist of snow fell
and on the north table Monday
morning the ground was white.
Tuesday night the snow again fell
and was one to two inches deep.
Near Rosebud it was reported four
inches deep , and three inches deep
near Britt. The cloudy weather
and wind has prevented frost.
Tuesday evening it became clear
and a heavy frost followed.
People who think they know all
about running a newspaper would
do well to compare themselves with
the following account by the editor
of the West Union ( W. Va. ) Rec
ord. He says :
"To run a newspaper all a fel-
lew has to do is to be able to write
poems , discuss the tariff and mon
ey question , umpire a ball game ,
report a wedding , saw wood , des
cribe a fire so that the readers will
shed their wraps , make one dollar
do the work of ten , shine ata dance
abuse the liquor habit , test whiskey ,
subscribe to charity , go without
meals , attack free silver , wear
diamonds , invent advertisement ,
sneer at snobbery , overlooks candaj
appraise babies , delight pumpkin
raisers , minister to the afflicted ,
heal the disgruntled , fight to a fin
ish , set type , mold opinion , keep
sour paste on hand , sweep the office - ,
fice but never wash the office towel ,
speak at prayer meetings and stand
in with everybody and everything.
From the Gordon Journal.
We are in receipt of the news of
the death of Mrs. Carrie Murr ,
wife of J. L. Murr who was once
at Crookston. The deceased was
a sister of Mrs. S. B. Rice of Har-
lan , and died on August 28th at
Bedford , Indiana.
About 7 miles from Hay Springs
the body of an old lady , 65 years
old , named Krumel was found on
the prairie in a badly decomposed
condition , supposed to have been
lifeless for about nine days. Her
sons claim that while they were
away from home on Wednesday
she left the house , and , supposing
that she was at some of the neigh
bors never sought for her until Sun
day , and not until the following
Thursday was the body found by
one of the sons , who discovered it
in a kind of draw , where he had
commenced to mow. The coroner's
jury decided that she came to her
death from some cause unknown
to them. .
