I a? •I This Fall. The Webster Reporter and Far mer is responsible for the state ment that a nev railroad running north and south between Water town and Fargo will be complet ed early this fall. The line as projected will fol low nearly the old Dakotn Cen tral survey, crossing Raritan and Frank townships in Day County, and passing north to a point on Clear Lake about two miles west From thence it will run north to Rutland, Perry andScoville, then northeast to Fargo. The line of the new railroad will extend through a rich farming region. This railroad, which has been for some time prospective, seems now to be assured, and for the very near future. Work on the grade will be commenced at both ends of the line on or about Sep tember 1st, and the track-laying machine will follow as fast as the grade is completed. The con tractors who will do the^ con struction work have specified a time limit that makes it practic ally certain that the new road will be in operation this fall, It is reported that the Rock Island is backing the enterprise.

The death of Mr. Peter Burns, for years a respected resident of this city, occurred at the home of his eldest daughter, Mrs. Ed At wood, at Graceville, Minn., last Sunday night. Mr. Burns was a native of Ireland, and was about sixty seven years of age. Left an orphan at an early age, he was yet but a child when he came to America. During his youth and early manhood he lived in Con necticut, but later found a home at Benson, Minn., where he re sided the greater part of his life, following his trade, which was that of a blacksmith. Between thirteen and fourteen entering into the mercantile bus iness here in partnership with his son-in-law, Mr. D. A.

Soule, of Rapid City, democratic candidate for Con gress, was in the city Tuesday. Soule wants to go to Congress and he don't care who knows it— in fact, he admits it. His card is as volumimus as a blanket It's a safe bet that if most of the rnsidents on Oak Street ever have any more sidewalks built, they won't ask to have a "grade" established. The one that they have now is causing a whole heap of trouble,—some are raised so high they have to have a step ladder to get onto ths sidewalk, others have a tunnel in front of their house, and the two lines of sidewalk look like two railway grades, We are told it will im prove the street, well, maybe it will, if the council ever get around to level off their pa of it. When most of the fellows who own property come to pay for sidewalk and "filling" we miss our guess if the best of them won't swear like a medical stu dent. Of course it won't do any good to swear, but it will relieve their feelings and have the same soothing effect upon their angry passions as slamming the door or smashing the furniture would,— but they'll pay the bill.
