B#th, Me., dispatch, 27: The ffllle village of Wynkoopville, Lawreneeooun ty, has a sensation that is unique in its way. Ten yaan ago the wile of Qaorga Axmil ler, a carpenter of Wynkoopville, ran away with a young lawyer named Sam uel Graves, the son of a prominent gentleman of the county. The runaway woman waa only 17 years of age, and had been married to Ax miller leea than a year. She was remarkably handsome, bat of an illiterate famdv. Axmiller waa an industrious young man, well thought of. He spent all the money be could raiae Iryiug lo find his wTfe. of whom he waa |aasiouately fond, but no trace of the runaway waa ever discover ed- Young Graves' father died 'within a year after the elojenient and left his property, valued al $75,000, to a distant relative, as his wife waa dead and the runaway son waa hia only child. The old man, in his will, disowned hia son. Nothing waa ever heard of the sloping couple. Ax miller remained is the vil lage and worked at hia trade. Sunday night a carriage stopped in front of the village pmloftSoe and a man who waa in the carriage asked a passerby where George Axmiller lived. The house waa pointed out o the stranger, who drove act. This was about 9 o'clock at night. On Monday morning when Axmiller came out of the house where he lived he saw a package on the sill. It waa addressed to him. He picked it up. He opened it and found that it waa a pack age of bank notea. OB the top note waa a piece of paper, on which waa written the following: Amanda is dead five years ago. Since then 1 have saved tbe enckiaad. If it ia any recom ense tor the fejovy 1 did, tor God's Sake take it? a. «. wis the bmm ol'AxmiUer'a ,' V z%i" 'x 5^ J. W. DATISOK.

Rapid City Journal, 27. .State Trea« urer W. F. Smith, Secretary of State A. O. Ringsrud, C. W. Howard, of l*isrre, and S. Whalen, a prominent buaineas man of Madison, arrived in the city late Sunday night from Pierre, having driven acroaa the reservation. The gentlemen come here, according to the Pierre Free Press "merelyon an expedition to in form themselves of the wuntry lying between Pierre and the Hilln and alao to thoroughly imform themselves on every point of induatry found in that wonder ful region known aa the Black Hills the only portion of the state known of or ever spoken of in Europe and the At lantic and Pacific ooaat states. The gen tie men have so planned their time that they will visit every portion of the Hills and familiarize theenmdves with iU prod uct*." In conversation with a reporter Sunday evening one of the party stated that there ia a great deal of good noun try suitable for agricultural purposes between here and Pierre, and although the party did not leave the old traveled trail whic/t runs part of the way through a bad section of country, still enough good ground waa seen to support a very large population. Emigration ia going into the country at a rapid rate, and the sharks of settlers were seen scattered everywhere from Pierre to Rapid City. The gentleman ia also sanguine that tbe Midland Pacific will have started to wards ths Hills before the year haa end ed, and that the Northwestern will alao have some of its road built in this di recti on. The party left on the train yee terday morning for the upper country, where its members will tarry until Thursday next. On that day they will return to Rapid City and spend a week or so hare before returning to Piers* runaway wife. The package contained $5,000 in $100 bills. No one doubts iha4 thw man who asked where Axuulier lived on Sunday night was Samuel Graves. He disappeared aa suddenly as he appeared and left no trace. No one begrudges Axmiller hia good for tana.

This morning dawned with a gsntle rain falling which continued at intervals until noon. Nearly every place of busi ness in the city was closed, and the businese men devoted the forenoon to decorating store fronts, etc. Egan avenue was festooned with flags, ban ners and streamers, and presented a very handsome and patriotic appearance. At 1 o'clock p. m., the procession waa formed according to the programme published yesterday, and under the command of J. M. Preston marched to the ojerH house. The veterans in line numbered thirty* four. They did not perhaps present the guady spectacle presented by many of the civic societies of the present day but deep down in the hearts of us younger raet^ feel a veneration for tbe G. A. R. members in the line of ma-ch that we do no feel for any other society of men. It te not necej«ary for them to wear glistening uniforms and waving plumes to denote their rank. The apparently trifling metal button worn on the coat-lapel is a sufficient guarantee that twenty-five years ago the wearer thereof possessed tbe man hood and tbe courage to shoulder his musket and go into the enemy's camp in defense of the country whose blessings we now enjoy. They are soldiers who defended our homee in our boyhood, and it is certainly fitting to them that our national government has set apart one day in the year to pay homage to tbe living and tbe dsad he roes of the war of the rebellion. The little school children were out in full force, and with fiag« in hand en tered into the observance of the day with childish ^lee and enthusiasm. The opera house wan handsomely dec orated with flags and other patriotic emblems, and w as filled to its utmost ca pacity. Tbe address of the occasion waa delivered by Capt. Stoddard of Sioux Falls, and waa well received by the im menae audience. At tbe conclusion of the estreiaea at the opera bouse, the members at, the G~ A. It and W 0. proceeded to the cemetery and strewed fiowers upon the graves of the soldier dead buried there. The afternoon was fine throughout, and business was generally suspended in order that the business men might en ter into the observance of the day.

Pierre Free Preaw, 27: White Swan, head chief of the Mmnikanjii band, and one of tbe principal chiefs of the Sioux nation, waa in town yesterday, and in an interview with your oorres pondent had the following to say in re gard to mattera pertaining to his people and their relations with the United States government. When asked for his opinion as to the present status and condition of hia people and their pruapeetH for the future he said: "To fully undeintand the condition of my people you must go back 22 years, when ve were all untamed and at war with the whites and all who ware not Sioux. If we are like children now, we were fools then. The summer of 1968 was the turning point in ths history of tbe Sioux nation. In 1068 the United States government issued a call to the Sioux to meet representatives of the Great Father at Fort liioe. The call, however, would have met with liTsaauMrt to no for and all meamn our signature*. While it caanot denied that we hare entirely idwtndoned our primitive iiabita and euftoma, we have put forth stren uous efforts to adopt the ways erf civili zation. Yet it must be admitted that on the whole we are no better off aow than we were twenty-two years ago. As to ourfuture it ia to dismal to contain plate. From a survey of our past his tory it would 1 hat onr entire race is doomed UMMHtiactiatt. But we must struggle on in th« hope that sometime the white man will become honsat, and the love of war will vanish frorti the red man's heart.

Ahraluun Lincoln was a patentee. A patent waa iasued to Abraham Lincoln in IMS.
