The enterprise of the people
of "Washington territory cannot
be drowned. , The people defy
both lire and flood.
Between $3,000,000 and S-k-000,000
have been contributed
by the generous people of the
United States for the relief of

sign a certificate thore that he is
sick before he can et his pre

In 1GS0 a liar was legally
punished by having a hole bor
ed through his tongue. If this
was the law now, and it was en
forced, some men's tongues
would look more like porns plas
ters than anything else.
St. Louis .has a leper. What
he is kept there for is a invsto

A prohibition paper tells its

idiots who are doing so much to !

in the year of '89.
Statistics are quoted to show
that "in New York, New Or

Boston, Chieasj.) and St. Louis,
there are nearly a fourth more
women tnan men, and women
are in the majority, in all tho
original state j except Djlewarc
and North Carolina."
The law increasing the liquor
tax in Dakota is now in force.
Tiie retail liqtior Ihreu.-o has
heretofore been 300 per an

lowest tax that can be imposed
is S00, and inaj' be placed as
high as $1,000, at the option of
the county commissioners.

the most prominet people of the

over the refusal oX the money.
The picnic managers then sent

These shafts of marble and
oranite are often raised to mark
the resting place of some one
who has been great in peace or

people for his unselfish sacrifice
of home, and kindred and the
pleasures of society for the ben

The siij)erintendent of the
