TBI Dint Lr tin make* a special feature of fnrn!#!»ti5g lnfor- lation concerning the ad tan and reoour .•* of the city of Madison and fce Mate at large, entitling it to the «tr ND vert if CIT of every ela»». J. P. ST patronage AH L. Proprietor. A conference oomtnittee of the two houses in congress have agreed to the appropriation (or establishing an Indian iuhool at Chamberlain. This is good Bens for the hustling city on the Big Muddy. Strange to (relate the Massachusetts dtate convention has declared in favor of firee silver coinage and national regula tion of the liqnor traffic. New and pro gressive ideas do gel into these old fossilized heads once in a while. Pennsylvania in state convention, Wednesday, adopting the South Dakota precedent, "sat down" effectually upon Boss Quay, even to the point of hissing his name and passed resolutions en dorsing President Harrison. To say that the Pennsylvania delegation and the Pennsylvania people are not solid for Harrison won Id be a perversion of facts. The old time "boss" is a thing of the past in republican politics and to be found at the present time only in the democratic and independent parties. Ex-Gov. Phil. K. Faulk of Yankton, in a recent letter shows that the Indian scouts for which Mr. Pettigrew has just secured in the senate the passage of a bill to pay them $11,(XX) for past sen-ices, were paid in 1869 and again in 1871, in all about $20,(XK) which the war depart ment considered a "just and proper com peansation." This information will no donbt have the effect of defeating Mr. Pettigrew's bill. Ex-delegate Burleigh corroborates Mr. Faulk's statement. H. L. Greene ami F. W. Pettigrew of Sioux Palls, D. C. Thomas of Water town and several other capitalists suc ceeded in the race in securing the loca tion for the new townsite of Sisseton on the reservation of that name. It is plat ted on section 28, town 126, range 57, at the head waters of the Minnesota river, aight miles north of the agency and in the center of the county. It is on the direct line of the C., M. & St. P. railway, which will reach it in a month, and in time this little burg will become the county seat of Roberts county. As a sample of the workings of reci procity, we will compare the importa tion of bags into the Cuban port of Havanna for the two months of January and February of 1891 and 1892, respec tively. In 1891 that port received from America in the two months, 5,758 bags and from Europe, 56,255 bags. In the two months for 1892 that country re ceived from America 83,643, and from Europe only 160. The American ship ping increased nearly 78,(00 bags in the two months, while the European fell off to absolutely nothing in the last month. Mitchell Republican, 19: The Bural ist indorses Tommy Ayer's little game of lying and forgery by which the latter inveigled several good republican editors into agreeing to accept pay for printing campaign arguments which they have all along printed for nothing, and Loucke is making a great hullabaloo over the expose. It gives him much needed re lief from the pressure of defending the Cordage Trust, and we are not surprised that he is disposed to make the most of it Just the same we are sorry that any of the brethren bit at so palpable and gauzy a scheme, for it doesn't argue well for their business sagacity. The Republican doesn't pretend to be so awful smart but it saw through the scheme at once, and secured confirma tion of its suspicions through the same channel by which it investigates all propositions made by unknown parties. No reputable advertising agency finds it necessary to accompany its orders with a cash-in-advance proposition, and if the offer of the International Adver tising bureau had not aroused suspic ion by its peculiar character, this part of it would have marked it u fraftL A recent census bulletin giving the re suits of investigation into the indebted ness on farms and homes, quite effect ually disposes of the calamity howl which is so frequently sent up. The statistics are gathered from ten counties each, promiscuously, in Ohio and Kan sas. It will be shown that much of the debt encumbering these farms and homes is for original purchase money and improvements. The bulletin says: In bringing together the prominent conclusions that have been developed it may be said in regard to farms, farm families and farm debt in the ten coun ties in Kansas that 66.75 per cent of ths^ .families own and 33.^3 per cent hire the farms they occupy that 35.62 per oent of •the owning families have no incum brance on their farms and thit 64.38 per .cent have an incumbrance that is 37.9C per ce-Jt of the value of the incumbered farms, bearing the average rate of inter „eet of 8.12 per cent, which makes the av •'erage annual interest charge to each farm family fill that the average farms ,owned, incumbered and cultivated by .—oh family worth $3,0*1, aod is tub- joct to a debt of $1,42, and that 70.02 per cent of the farm families incurred 31.23 per cent of the debt to seen re pur chase money to pay for improvements, to invest in business and |to buy various articles of personal property, when these objects are not associated with others. In regard to Kansas homes, home fami lies and home debt in. the ten counties it may be said that 51.69 per cent of the families own and 48.31 per cent hire the homes they occupy, that 58.82 per cent of the owning families have no incum brance on their homes, and that 41.19 per cent have an incumbrance that is 38.95 per cent of the value of the incum bered homes, bearing the average rate of interest of 8.69 per cent, which makes the average annual interest charge to home family $74, that the average home owned, incumbered and occupied by each family is worth $2,198, LonffMbor«m«n and is subject to a debt of $856, and that 87.22 per cent of the home families incurred 87.39 per cent of the debt for the objects of real estate purchases, improvements, business and the purchase of general property unconnected with other objects.

Des MOINES, April 22.—Three persons are lying dead in this city as the result of a terrible triple tragedy which oc curred at 10 o'clock p. m. James Coch ran, a well known farmer, living five miles from this city, shot and killed his wife and a hired man named Davis. H« then reloaded his shot gun and blew out his own brains. A young lady visitor at the house is the only surviving witness to the terri ble aifair, She ran barefooted through the muddy fields to a neighboring house and gave the alarm. The coroner is now holding an inquest. Cocliran and his wife have had coo* Biderable domestic trouble, and last October separated by mutual agree ment. A few weeks later Mrs. Cochran secured a divorce. Mrs. Cochran re tained possession of the home, which consisted of a farm of ten acres, aul employed Davis as a hired man. It is supposed that Cochran became insanely jealous of the supposed relationship be tween Mrs. Cochran and Davis and the tragedy ia the result of his jealous fury. ROUTED THE RUSTLERS.

Sernllaz has discovered large forests of these trees, and has hit upon practical ways of collecting the gum without destroying the trees, as the natives inevitably do. M. Serullaz has been allowed to transport -several hundreds of the trees from ten to fifteen years old to Algiers, and their cultiva tion will be attempted also in Guiana. M. Serullaz has left for Algiers with liis cargo, which is artificially warmed an board the Cachar.—Philadelphia Led ger. HKL H. J. PATTERS08, DEALER IN COALIWOQD Agent-for DELL RAPIDS GRANITE QUARRIES.
