The Major is well and .'avorably known throughout the dis trict and would without doubt make an able and efficient officer. We are informed by a circular from the Territorial democratic central com mittee that the democratic party as a party organization will' make no nomi nations and have nothing whatever to do with the coming election so far as regards voting on the constitution and for state officers. We are not much given to asking i'onundrums but would suggest a pos sible query to those who know: What would be the status of the new state's •Jl'lieers if they were elected and, the constitution rejected They certainly could not hold office under the consti tution already adopted and on file in Washington.

It is said to have "een started maliciously for the express purpose of burning out a neighbor, but while doing him no material injury it has entailed severe loss upon others. Mr. Bennett lost all his grain, straw and hay Geo. Archer lost everything except what he had in the house—in cluding wagon, plows, harness, etc. One family we heard of where they were all sick lost everything but the house. Hundred-} cf tons ot hay were destroyed which will be a severe loss for the farmers as the quantity of hay put up this fall was no greater than would have been needed with .close economy. Whoever set the fire, if it could be proven on them, would find it more comfortable to emigrate to' an other section of country on very short notice. We suppose our readers are all ready to cast an intelligent vote for or against the constitution to be voted on Nov. 3d. It is an able document Considered as a whole but there are in this as in all other great works of art, chances for difference of opinion. Judge Moody's line Italian hand can be discerned all through the document but more parti cularly in the section regarding exemp tions Should Dakota become a state with this clause in its constitution Con gress would have no right to interfere as it did a few years ago when Judge Moody succeeded in getting an act through the legislature repealing the exemption laws. The prohibition clause will no doubt be carried, as it should be, but the clause regarding mi nority representation should have, in our opinion been left out altogether, as it is not a very sure remedy for the cure it is expected to make.

Mi s. L. II. Blank, Teacher. A Word to Mineralogists. Since the organization of the Agassia Association, one of its most unexpected results has been.the marked influence exerted on the methods of instruction and the course of study in many pub lic private schools. It has been dem onstrated that there is a wide-spread desire on the part of the young to ac quire a practical knowledge of natural science. This Association gives great aid to all such persons, but from the nature of the case, tho A. A. must operate more in the way of stimulating and en couraging students, and inciting schools to give better scientific instruc tion, than, by actual direct teaching. Probably it would be a vei'y moderate estimate to suppose that the study of plants, insects, and birds has been in troduced into more than a hundred in stitutions during the last five years through the agency of our. Society. But in the department of mineralogy tho case seems to be different. The desire of learning is quite as strong and general as in any of the other branches, but the number of compe tent instructors is greatly less. Prob ably ten teachers feel able to teach the elements of botany from the specimens, for every one who dares attempt prac tical work in mineralogy. Tho grow ing demand for instruction will event ually causo an increase in the number of good teachers but in the meanwhile, has not our Association, in this branch of study, a very important field tor its special work assistance a.nd en couragenientP An enthusiastic miner alogist could easily arrange and con duct through these pages a short course in mineral observation and analysis, sufficiently extended, to awaken throughout the whole country a the minds of young and old a strong desire and determination to learn about, min eral formations, and also to illu strate, for t'ae benefit of all, the right stliods of study and of teaching. The president of tho A.^ A., not being a practical mineralogist, hesitates about preparing such a course himself, and hereby invites any philan thropic specialist in this depsirtmeait, or in its kindred branch,.-geology* to volunteer to conduct a course of yasv lessens in tins observation e£ Funerals.-—Harlan H. Ballard, Lciiox, in AicA olasfor S^^^THSKRSS^ .. A 1 WESSINGTON SPRINGS, JERAULD COUNTY, DAKOTA, FRIDAY, HE THREW AWAY i' FOUR vr"QUEENS' .If!"-) Stanley Huntley's Extraordinary rAich. IflAi Poker Game at BUuiarck* One of tho most famous game of] 'oi poker ever played in the North'resti was between tho lato Stanley Huntley and Maj. A. W. Edwards, the otitor PrroPrietor of the Fargo Ar)us. Mr. Huntley had not been ma ing much money out of ihe Bismarck bune, and when he was taken sick was unable to attend to business several months, his affairs becaihc entangled that ho determined to out his share in the paper. As the buna was the only paper in Bismi at that time, and as there was a str political ring in tho county,ho hopes of disposing of his property \to the politicians but, fearing that Ac might fail to do so, he dropped a line to Maj. Edwards asking him to. buv his paper. Maj. Edwards hail made a fortune out of iiis own paper, and, as ho was ambitious to own mor© papers* he promptly responded to the letter liy drawing $2,000 from the bank and tak ing tho first traiu for Bismarck. Wlien he reached that city he found that tho trade with tho politicians was made, and Huntley had come out of his diffi culties with several hundred dollars in cool cash. It was several hours before the return train left, and, having noth ing else to do tho Major suggested that they play a game of poker at So ante. The Major's fame as a poker player was not confined alone to Fareo. He was recognized throughout the Terri tory as the best player in the North west, and when it becamo noised about the town that he and Huntley were to play for large stakes there was no sa loon in the place large enough to ac commodate the crowd, and Ihe game was moved to the town-hall, over the engiue-houso. The game began at noon and contin ued until 2 o'clock, with varying suc cess. At last there was a jack-pot containing $200 on tho table, and it was Maj. Edwards' deal. AVhen Mr. Huntley picked up his hand ho saw that he held four queens and an ace. Ho was surprised. Cards had not been running well enough to justify such luck, lie saw the Major throw away one cstrd and hold four. "How much do you open it for?" asked the Major nonchalantly. Huntley stopped a moment to think, and then replied calmly: "I don't open it." "Well, I will," said tho Major. "For how much?" asked Huntley. "For §100," replied the Major. "All right," said Huntley, throwing away his four queens and keeping his ace, "I'll como in. Give me four cards." -mthaglanco of inc*^tyand the Major dealt them and took one himself. I "I'll bet §100," observed tho Major. "Raise you $100," said Huntlej. The Major scanned his hand care fully, looked at his youthful adversary keenly, and raised it back for the tame amount. "Raise it $100 more," said Hu lit ley. This sort of thing continued intii there were $2,400 on the table, and the crowd was breathless with excite ment. "I'll raise you $500," said the Major, "if you will trust me," "Rather have the cash," said ley. "Will you take this ring for that amount?" returned the Major, ak he pointed to a magnificent solitaire) dia mond he wore, which cost him $1,000 in Chicago. "Yesj" said Huntley, as he saw the raise. "Then I'll call," said the Major. unt- Huntley laid down his haud. He had caught the other threo acps. The Major had only four kings, just as Huntley had suspected. It cost Hunt ley $500 to treat the crowd, and when the Major left for Fargo it was on bor rowed money. The fame of this game spread around the Territory, and when Huiitley re turned from his trip into the North west Territory, after interviewing Sit ting Bull, ho stopped at Fargo on his way East, and gave Maj. Edwards back his ring. After dinner, as Huntley was about to take the traiu for New .York, the Major, accompanied by several of his friends, went to the station to see him off. "By the way, Stanley," said he, "since you left Bismarck they have told some pretty rough stories about that game of poker we played." "What are they?" "They say that I dealt myself four kings from a cold deck.. Now, I want you to tell these gentlemen that Xpl£ cd a fair, square game." "The Major is right," said Iluntley. "He played an honest game." "Thanks, Stanley," returned the Major. "Now, I want to ask you one question." "All right." "I want to know how in the devil you ever came to discard those four queens I dealt you?" "I'll answer that, Major," said Hunt ley, with a grim smile, "if you will tell me how you knew I had four queens." —m Y. stm. London is now a city of gardens.
