Mitchell Mail, 10: He was a dog. A setter. In Pap. Prescott's tield he "sot" one prairie chicken. The grain had been out with a header, so that the stubble was knee high. Mr. Preeoott did not see his dog, which stood trans fixed, its tail spread out like a handsaw, #he threshing machine was set. $ird I and (log never stirred. The first para lyzed with fear, the latter in rigid ec stacy. Soon the thresher got to work. The straw carrier began to drift the straw in broad streams upon the stiff breeze. First the bird was covered, the loOae straw settled over the dog, until eight foot of cover was stacked on the loyal brute. Three days and nights he remained there, and was only discovered and uncovered, when some newcomers from Brown county removed the straw pile in tilling their bed ticks. Then this "ower true" tale was told, by the dead bird four feet from the setter's nose, and the broken tail of the bird dog, which was snapped short by the accumulated weight of the straw.

New York Sun: An interesting and instructive tableau was witnessed the other day at Brunswick,^ Me., in the very heart of the "strict" prohibition section of the state. The fast express train struck a hayrack containing two men, demolishing the vehicle and some what injuring its occupants. The train was stopped and the passengers, pouring out, surrounded the unfortunate farmers, who were unconscious. Some one asked if there was any liquor in the crowd. A drummer passed out a neat little flask of old Bourbon, another drummer followed his example, and soon there were hands stretching forth from all directions with pints and half pints, round bottles, flat bottles, and square bottles of all dimen sions, from a gill to a quart, and con taining everything from imported brandy to Portland rum. There was enough there to start a Lew is ton drug store, and the only man in the crowd who didn't havo a bottle ran off to a farm house and soon returned with a two-gal lon jug of some mysterious liquor. nut Begun to (xrow. Pierre Capital, 11: A traveling sales man, who for years has ranged over South Dakota, says: "I want to go on the record as saying that the merchants of South Dakota are buying thirty-three per ctnt. more goods and better quali ties than for three years.

The railroads will haul millions of bushels out of South Dakota this fall, and they will bring back hundreds of farmers and homeseek ers next year. I have traversed South Dakota in all sorts of weather, and in good and bad seasons. I have always allirmed that South Dakota was one of the foremost states in the sisterhood, so far as natural resources are concerned, and I am convinced that my theory is oorrec|iw Setter Times. DeSmet News and Leader: Already money is beginning to "loosen up." Its effects can be felt and seen on all sides. The mighty dollar has started on its cheerful journey of small debt payments —resting for only a brief space in any man's clothes—and yet but a compara tively few kernels of the mighty wheat crop have departed from first hands.

Sioox Falls Press, 13: A strong effort WAS made at the meetings of the demo cratic and independent central commit tees at Huron and Mitchell respectively to have the conventions held in Sioux Falls. At the republican meeting it was said that if an effort had been made it would have been successful, but the cit izens present from here wero inclined to think that it would be better to wait "ml m"ra CLlliliKD BY TRAMPS. Outrageous Depredations Committed in the Suburbs of Eliza beth, N. J. One Man Stripped Naked, Clubbed sad Turned Adrift—Another Bobbed. lUfhTraymwr fffrld Up the Invatis of a Kansas City Saloon Crimes. ELIZABETH, N. J., Sept. 15.—Tramps have been committing depredations of late on the outskirts of Elizabeth, but they have recently become so bold that peaceable citizens are much alarmed. The tramps confined their operations at first to the suburbs, but are now begin ning to terrorize the residents. Shortly after midnight William Wickerheim, who was returning home from an enter tainment, was attacked by six tramps each armed with a club. They obstruc ted the roadway as Wickerhcim passed along. The tramps made threatening demonstrations with their clubs and de manded all the valuables Wickerheim had with him. Swam for His I.If*. Four of them grabbed him by the arms and held him securely." Two others grabbed his silver watch and chain and turned his pocket i "*9 out. securing a small amount of in niey. The tramps were disappointed at not securing more booty, and one of them said, "Let's club him." Then one of the tramps removed his battered old hat, and grabbing Wick erlieim's hat from his head, stuck it on his own froway head. This fnrni-hed an idea for the other tramps. They divided then and there to strip Wickerheim of his clothes and leave him get homo as bot=t he could. It looked very bad for Wickerheim. The Elizabeth river, a steam about sixty yards wide, was not far off. Wicker heim had to think quickly, and he thought of the river. As the tramps were pulling off his coat and quarreling over the possession of it, each having hold of it, Wicker heim suddenly slipped out of it and ran down the road as fast as he could. Three of the tramps tumbled over and the other three were so surprised at Wickerlieim's sudden movement that they were for a moment unable to act. With this start he ma^ the river and swam across. The inherent antipathy of the ordinary tramp to water pre vented pursuit, and he escaped. Stripped This Man Naked. Thomas McCarthy was also g6ing home at a pretty late hour in pretty hear the same vicinity. The same band of tramps attacked him. stripjed him of all his clothing and shoes and robl»ed him of everything he possessed. Then they beat a tattoo on his naked back with their clubs and turned him adrift. McCarthy finally reached home more dead than alive and half frozen, as the night was cool. The people who live in the vicinity where the ontrage occurred are indig nant at what they call lack of police pro tection, and they talk of forming a vig ilance committee. v ROBBED THE SALOON. Thre* Highwaymen Hold Up the Inmatw of a Barroom at Kansas City. KANSAS CITY, Sept. 15.—At 12 o'clock p. m. three highwaymen entered the saloon of Tony Crandall on the south west boulevard and "held up" the in mates, five in all, robbing them of their valuables. Crandall attempted to resist and was beaten over the head with revolvers, his watch, diamond pin and all the money in the cash drawer being taken. The robbers then leisurely helped themselves from the bottles and took their departure. A Young Lady Shot. DICKINSON, N. D.. Sept. 1«,—A wingw lar shooting affair took place at Rich ardton, a neighboring town, during the night. Fred Smith, a laborer at the Richard ton hotel, took the lilx?rty to go into a young lady's sleeping room. She ordered him out, but he refused to go. She then hit him over the head with a broom and ejected him from the room. Smith returned with a cowboy revolver and fired two shots, lxth taking effect in her leg, just above the knee. The re ports brought men to the scene, where upon the wretch tried to take his owa life, but was prevented. The girl will survive. Murdered a Child. Burros, Md., Sept. 15.—Harry A. Price, aged 5 years, was found dead in his room with a bullet hole in his head. He was dressing, evidently, when shot, as he had on some of his clothing.
