DeKay against the Chicago, Milwaukee St. Paul railway company, which was tried in the district court of this county last Fall, attracted a good deal of atten- tion. The plaintiff represented by Hon. A. J. Edgerton of Dakota, Geo K. Edgerton, Lovely Morgan, and several other attorneys, and Mr. II. H. Field, the company's solicitor and W E. Todd contended defendant. The plaintiff obtained u verdict for The Minneapolis Tribune says the case is of very great importance to per- sons who carelessly board trains, or who cross railway tracks without ob- serving trains moving in opposite di- rections, and also in leaving trains at intermediate stations. In this case the plaintiff was a pas- senger from Mitchell, to Sioux Falls, and at a station six miles out from Mitchell his train stopped and was ordered to wait for a train to pass. The conductor said he would stop "20- or 30 and the plaintiff got off and went into the town for more than 15 minutes. On returning he heard the conductor say "all where- upon he ran and jumped across tracks and was struck by the incoming train and sustained injuries. The supreme court has reversed the order. The evi- dence showed that the plaintiff ran so near the front of the moving engine that persons who saw him thought he" was '-trvintr to kill himself Interesting Items from the City As- sessor's Returns. Assessor Gillrup's completed returns many facts which may be profitably studied. The basis of assess- ment, as is the custom throughout the state although contrary to the law, is to list personal property at about one- third its real value, and, of course there is a great deal that is not report- ed and so not listed at all.

The opinion is based on the fact that the plaintiff had left the train and there was no excuse for the hurried manner in which he jumped toe his train because the conductor had eatted "all aboard" as a signal to the passen gers who had left the train. The syl-1 nanoiorte' labus is interesting and is as furniture When a passenger enters a railway train and pays his rare to a particular place, m's contract does not obligate the company to furnish him witu means of egress and ingress at an interme- diate station, and if he leaves the train at such a station he for the time being surrenders his place as a passenger and takes upon himself the responsibility of his own movements. But If he leaves without objection on the part of the company he does no illegal act, has a right to re-enter and resume his Journey. While if Value.

Where Should the Umpire Stand'J The question having arisen among some of our amateur base ball players as to where the umpire should stand during a game, Chas. Fobes wrote A. U. Spaldiiig Jiros. of Chicago, whose authority is undoubted in such matters and received the following reply: C. A. FOBES Lea, -Wirm.-DEAR but: xours of the 6th received and in reply to your question will say that an umpire can stand either Behind the batsmau or pitcher just as he wishes, as In some cases it is very hard for him to call balls and strikes when he stands behind the bat and may change if he thinks it will help him any. It is getting customary after a man gets on first for the umpire to go behind the pitcher as it unabtes him to see all base plays. Yours truly, A. G. SPALDIXG BROS. 8.G54 M.872 24.627 63.1G5 A. B.

Kozeman, Missoula, the ellowstone Sational Park, and in fact nine- tenths of the cities and points of interest in the territory. The Northern Pacific owns and operates 021 miles or 56 per cent of the railroad mileage of Washington, its main line extending from the Idaho line via Spokane Falls, Cheney, Sprague through the center ot the territory to Tacoma and Seattle, and from Tacoma to Portland. No other trans-continental through rail line reaches any portion of Wash ington Territory. Ten days stop over privileges are given on Northern pacific second class tick- ets at Spokane Falls and all points west, thus affording intending settlers an excellent oppor- tunity to see the entire territory without incur- ring the expense of paying local fares from point The Northern Pacific is the shortest route from St. Paul to Tacomn, by 207 miles; to Seattle bv 177 miles, and to Portland by 324 correspondingly shorter, varying Irom one to two days, according to destination. No other line from bt. Paul or Minneapolis runs through passenger cars of any kind into Idaho, Oregon or Washington. fa In addition to being the only rail line to Spok- ane Falls, Tacoma and Seattle, the Northern Pacific reaches all the principal points in North- ern Minnesota and Dakota.

Suit, druggist, Bippus, Ind., testifies: 'I can recommend Electric Bitters as the verv best remedy. Every bottle sold has given relief In every case. One man toek six bottles and was cured of rheumatism of ten years' stand- ing." Abraham Hare, druggist, Bellvllle. Ohio, affirms: "The best selling medicine I have ever handled In my twenty years' experience, Is Electric Bitters." Thousands of others have added their testimony, so that the verdict Is un- animous that Electric Bitters do cure all dis- eases of the liver, kidneys and blood.

Disease fastened its clutches upon her and for seven years she withstood Its severest tests, but her Tltal organs were undermined and death seemed Imminent. For three months she coughed m- cessanllvand could not sleep. She bought of us a bottle of Dr. King's New Discovery for Consumption and was so much relieved on tak- ing first dose that she slept all night and with one bottle has been miraculously cured. Her name is Mrs. Luther Lutz." Thus write W. C. Hainrlck Co. of Shelby, N. C. Get a free trial bottle Wedge S Barlow's drug store. very unjust and unlawful.

They may refuse to do so, but m such case they must leave the Home. Very few have left tnere on this account, and several who did so, spent in debauchery in a few days all they had. We believe the ac- tion of the trustees in withholding all pension money under the circumstan- ces except S4 a month is generally ap- proved by old soldiers. Harvest Excursions. The Burlington, Cedar Eapids JSorthern Railway has arranged to run five harvest excursions to all stations on its Iowa Falls division, north of and including Iowa Falls, and to vari- ous sections west, northwest, south and southwest.
