In central Dakota, on the "Mis souri bottoms," there exists one of nature's strangest freaks. The settlers term it the "pump snake." How it came there and where it came from is yet unknown. It first made its appearance in Em mons county injhe spring of 1886. A full grown 'plxmp snake meas ures about sixteen feet in length and about three inches in diameter. They are of gregarious habits, roaming the prairies in large herds, as many as three hundred having been counted -in a single flock. In di ecting one of these reptiles there is found a tube which ex tends from the roof of the jaw to the extremity of the tail and terminating in an opening. This tube is about two inches in diam eter and lined with a a tough, yielding substance similar to rub ber, The pump snake is easily trained to answer the call of jnan. The inhabitants in this section trap them in large numbers. A farmer at Cat Tail creek has a flock of twenty pump snakes trained to a remarkable degree of proficiency. At the blast of a whistle the snakes assemble on the banks of the creek. The leader (there is always a leader to a herd of these snakes, who is elected by a two-thirds majority) dashes into the water of the creek, leaving only the extremity of its tail on the bank. Another snake immediately grasps the end of the leader's tail in his jaws, a th'rd takes hold of the second snake's tail in a similar manner, and so on, extending to the water troughs in the cattle yards 30 feet away. The leading snake begiqs to swal jowbr pump the water of the creek, which passes through the long line of snakes as it would through a hose, and falls in a heavy stream into the trough. The agriculturist told of an ex traordinary circumstance which occurred a short time ago. While -working in a field near his home, he observed flames issuing from the roof of his barn. Wild with excitement he hurried to the burn ing building, only to see that it was a hopeless task for himself alone to attempt to extinguish the flames. In despair he gazed on the work of destruction. Suddnt ly he heard a loud rustling in the tall grass, whence issued his herd of pump snakes on the run. The leader hurled himself into the creek, the rest instantly adjnsting themselves, heads and tails, from the creek to the burning building. The last snake standing on its head, waved its long and flexible body, from the tail of which is sued a stream of water that was thrown with terrific force on the burning building. Back and forth dashed the tail end of the Jiving hose, squirting the water where it would do the most good, while the loud pumping of the leader could be heard above the roar of the conflagration. Within fifteen minutes 'the last spark was out. Then, and not till then, did the pump snakes quit work. They were completely exuaustea, tne leader having fainted dead away. The main part of the building and its contents were saved, thanks to the presence of mind of these won derful snakes. The territorial government is becoming awakened to the extreme usefulness of these interesting creatures, and laws are to be en acted to protect the pump snake. Big Sale of Eailroad Lands San Francisco, Sept. 7. There is no abatement in the demand for cheap land for agricultural pur poses within the grants of the Central Pacific, Southern Pacific and California and Oregon lines. During August land agent Mills sold 23,608 acres, chiefly on the California and Oregon line. One sale in Shasta county, some twenty-five miles east of Redding, comprised 16,000 acres. The pur chasers are formed in a syndicate headed by George W. Meade, of this city. The land will be col onized, and about all the other land sold has been for settlement and cultivation. In six days of thif month land agent Madden sold 1,201,276 acres in the South ern Pacific grant. Over 3,500 acres "were sold yesterday. The Chicago Anarchists. Chicago, Sept. 7. Capt. Black, one of the attorneys for the anar chists, had a long talk with his clients at the jail. He assured Spies, Parsons, et al., that there would be no opinion rendered in their cases for at least two or three weeks. He thought their enemies desired to. see it early. The opinion wpuld be favorable to the anarchists, and would grant them a new trial. Taking the worst view of it, Capt. Black in sisted that Done of them would ever be hanged. Nothwithstanding Capt. Black's hopeful view in regard to the out come of the anarchists' case, the sheriff and state authorities seem to take a different view for every precaution is being taken to prevent any one from visiting the jail who is not called there on business. An extra force of bailiffs and officers do duty at night, and a number are kept as reserve in the grand jury room of the criminal court building, for duty in case of emergency. The Herald claims to have in formation directly from the de tective department of the city po lice that serious trouble, in case of an adverse decision by the supreme court, is expected, and preparations on a large scale are heing made to meet it. An official interviewed said that at least 150 "reds" are being shad owed, and Judge Gary's resi dence, as well as that of the jury men who condemned the anarch ists, are closely watched. The four principal witnesses for the slate are receiving police protec tion at their own request. State's attorn' Gnnnell's house is also well guarded. The official inti mated that one of the most des perate "reds" who rebided on Rice street had held a secret council with four of the most trustworthy of the "inner circle," but a few days since, and each attendant upon that secret meeting was just now an object of special attention. In the Whole Hideous Catalogue Of diseases, there were none which, previ ous to the discovery of ITostetter's Stomach Bitters, offered more formidable resistance to the old Ushioned modes of treatmeut than the group of maladies v. hlcli. under the collective name of malarial disease, afflicted the entire communities that suffered hope lessly. Chills and feer, dumb ague, ague cake and bilious remittent were once re garded as well nigh incurable. Now It re joices the hearts of thousands who reside m districts periodically subject to the lslt atlon of malaria, to feel certain that in the Bitters they possess a certain defense against the scourge, a suro means of expelling its poison from the sjstem. To the settler in the far "West, the new emigrant thither, and to travelers and tourists by land and sea, the possession of this pleasant safeguard is a guaranty of safety from diseases which they might vainly seek from any other source. W. D. Close, proprietor of the Cowlitz Advocate has been held to answer to the grand jury for libel on .Levi bummers, he having published that about three vears ajjo Summers was arrested for killing deer out of season, but got out ot it by hard swearing.
