J. Y. STAHL, Proprietor. Still the kettle trails over at the Yank too reservation. The unoertainty which doth hedge the opening and the appre hension caused by the attempt of the elate commissioner of school and public lauds to sequester 50,000 acree for the state before the land is thrown open to settlement are canning no end of specu lation and worry to the iuteniling set tlers, to the agent of the reservation aud to the Indians who sold the land to the government on the express conditions that it should be sold only to actual set tlers. The land commissioner asserts that he knows what he is doing and set tlers had better not attempt to jump his tihr-ifB while both settlers HLCI Indians declare they will coutest in the courts the right of the state to take these lands away from them and out of the market. It is barely possible that the state land commissioner backed by the interior de partment by some technical construc tion of the enabling act may be able for the present to deprive the settlers and Indians of their rights in the premises, but if so, it will be a clear case of viola tionof a later treaty by the United States and of pertidy to the Indians, a cost at which no government and no state can ^afford to take the paltry amount of 50,000 acres. Commissioner Lockhart in his zeal to do the state a good act may hive overlooked the in herent rights of these wards of the na tion and confiscate for the state, lands, the profits from whose sale to actual set tlers was to accrue to these wards. It certainly is not right, and done to any but a conquered people be a casus bellj, It perhaps :s not much of a theft and hence the less reason why a great state should engage in it. We hope the com missioner will reconsider his action or get knocked out. It's a chilly day when the man with "a waddling gait" is not located some where and the latest advices would place him in the nunny clime of Chili. The official test of the new artesiun well in tionilla township has been made by Irrigation Engineer Baldwin. It is 1}$ inch bore, 1,114 feet deep, penetrat ing the water bearing rock 45 feet the flow is 1,4.12 gallons per gallons per min ute, with a pressure of 175 pounds per square inch. It is the "biggest" little well in the artesian basin. Yankton Press. 30: School Commis sioner Lockhart tendered tho register of the land office at Mitchell fees amount ing to $500, but the register declined to receive them, holding that the proposed action was expressly forbidden iu the trenty with the Indians. The Yanktons themselves are determined to ^prevent the proposed action and have signed a vigorous protest to the president. This has been put in the hands of W. T, Sel wyii, a son of the head chief, who will personally take it to the president. Redtield Press, 2*: This is practically the next state ticket as agreed upon by the third house at Pierre. Their propo sitions upon legislative matters having had considerable weight this winter, will make their proposevi ticket quite strong in the 18'JG campaign. VViu. B. Sterling, U. S. senator C. T.

Our in formant was not positive when and where they had decided to hold the next state convention but thought it would be in some central locatiou like Huron or Redtield. -Chamberlain Journal. We ccpy the above as a speciman of the foolishness some men like to indulge in. Any man who will attempt to name a ticket two years ahead, and name men who haws so poor or little record as some of the above must look oat when the fool killer comes. Will Keep the People Pouted.

Mrs. Lucy Jane Wood of Cedar Rap ids, la., claims to be a second cousin of Abraham Lincoln. She is a daughter of James Hanks and was born at Decatnr, Macon county, Ills., in 1882, and some of her oarliest recollections are connect ed with tho lanky rail splitter who aft erward became president. From her third xear until she was 10 she was al most helpless from disease, and Lincoln, who was a frequent visitor at her fa ther's house, won Id carry her about on his shoulder and treat her very tenderly on account of her affliction. She says he "always had a load of books when he came and would stay a month, aud would then go to another family of the Haukses. He would thus 'board around' without expense, and pursued his studies and reading until he lis. LI.I V JANE worm. was ready to enter a law office as a stu dent." She was 8 years old when he re moved to Springfield and began the reg ular study of law. When asked by a Cedar Rapids re porter whether she considered Abe lazy, Mrs. Wood said that she did not con sider that matter in her childhood, but she could not recall that he did any work except when he lived with his stepmother, ten miles from her father's place. There is where he split rails and did otlirr work necessary to the estab lishni' ii! of a pioneer farm. Her most vivid i(.-"Ilection concerns his goodness to her and her dread lest he should al low her to fall when he was carrying her on his shonlder, as ho was so tall that she considered a fall from such a height us a cause of certain death. Mr*. Wood has been twice married and is now a widow. She has lived in Cedar Rapids about a year, having moved there from Henderson county, Ills.

Frenchmen Wl4 English Wives. It is a curious fact that, notwithstand ing the strong prejudice which the French entertain toward Britain and the British, the French gentlemen have a decided preference to British ladiea when they mean to marry. An English man visiting Paris is surprised at the number of English ladies with French husbands whom he meets in society If a British lady of passable appearance re mains long unmarried iu Paris, the pre sumption is that the fault is her own. It is worthy of remark, on the other hand, that a Briton resident in Paris very rarely marries a French lady French Letter. LATEST MARKET REPORT. Milwaukee Grata. MILWAUKEE, April 1,1805.

It is learned that Baker is in poor health and does not care to undergo another summer aft Managua. Iu addition to this, the de partment does not approve of the man* uer in which Baker criticized Semar Madriz in reference to the International ('anal company. It is more than prob able that Baker leaves Managua perma nently, although he has secured leave of absence of 60 days probably to be Urt out easy. t_ LOTS TAME BLACKFISH. HUIJ Come Readily to Take 1.1 The blackfish in nature is shy, but in captivity, with kindness, it is easily temed. In one of the pools of the city's aquarium at Castle Garden there are a number of blackfish, including some 15 inches long and weighing two pounds, that will take food, live killies, or min nows, from the hand. The killie is held just under the top of the water and the blackfish comes up and takes it, some moving a little warily as though inves tigating first so as to make sure that it wa8 all right, and others coming up with confidence, taking the fish from the fingers and swallowing it with a smack. Sometimes a minnow escapes from the fingers or from the fish that is try ing to take it and darts away for safety, with two or three blackfish, sometimes more, after it The little minnow sticks close to the edge of the pool and to the surface of the water. It is thus protect ed on one side by the wall of the pool, and at the surface it can swim faster than its pursuers, and being so much smaller it can turn much quicker than the blackfish. It may go half the length of the pool, hogging the wall, and then dart across the pool at right angles, with the big blackfish still after it. So long as the minnow keeps to the top it is safe, but if it goes to the bottom the chancea are greatly against it In deep er water the bigger fish can do better than tho smaller fish. Weakfish sometimes become very tame in captivity. One has been known to lift its head four inches out of water to seize a live killie held in the hand. —York Son.
