a wonderful change in the looks of it.

the public of the surrounding country
should attend it for at wofold reason :
Firstly, the proceeds of this concert
will be equally divided between the
four Sunday schools of Millheim and
we think our peop'e should all do their
share to conti ibtite to this beneficial
enterprise hy their attendance. The
admission fees will be very reasonable
and almost everybody will bo able to
pav the small sum for a ticket.
Secondly, the worth of their money
will be fully repaid by one of the rich
est and best conducted performances
ever given in this or neighboring
towns. The association has been ably
drilled by Prof. KniZMikiuibo for over
two months and have already commen
ced to rehearse the solo, duet,
quartett and instrumental parts to. be
rendered by some of our best homo tal

DEAR EDITOR .—I thought likely a
few lines from mo would be acceptable.
We had a prosperous journey of three
and a half days and two nights, and
were met at Bridgewater hy Mi.Henry
Bollinger, who lives about two and a
half miles from that place. Mr. Bol
linger has a nice farm of 100 acres,
well stocked, with a small but comfort
able house and all the necessary out
buildings erected thereon. lie clerks
in his brothei's hardware store, while
his sons work the farm. The land in
Dakota is very nice and Mike it ever
so much. We are out prospecting for
land daily, but can not obtain any Gov
ernment land for homesteading ;
claims can be bought however at from
three to eight hundred dollars and
deeded lands from £lO to £SO. None
of our party have any land as yet. 1
shall shortly commence to work at ray
trade and in the meantime watch a
chance to secure a tract of land. Ilad
I £SOO at command those of my friends
in Millheim who only gave mo tlnce
weeks and others who would have me
back hy campraeeting, would for once
be disappointed. Should I turn ray
face eastwaid again from this paradise
of the world, it would be only because
I can not secuie a tract of land owing
to my limited finances. Had I to-day
five-hundred dollars, I would invest in
a claim, and in a year it would double
itself. As it is, I shall not give up the
ship, until I am, of sheer necessity o
bliged to do so. If any of my friends
have SSOO at six per cent, to send to
me, I'll guarantee them a' safe invest
ment, and show by my works that I
have stdl ambition enough in me to
live and work in Dakota, and, if God
so orders it,die in this beautiful land.

changes of the weather occur every
twenty four hours, almost everyone
has a tioulilesome cold, which, if neg
lected may produce results that will
trouble you for the remainder of your
life. Dr. Kessler's Celebrated English

praise in this class of complaints. It
never fails! It never disappoints! In

Washington, D.C., May 7th, 1881.
The evidence thus far adduced lit the
Kellogg case would be most damaging
were the culprit any other than Kell
ogg, but in a land where courts are or
ganized to acquit, who shall say that
the jury shall be compelled to give
weight to any amount or character of
testimony? What a terrific mountain
of evidence was piled up against the
Star-route cabal, and how easily was it
all swept aside through tiio agency of
political inlliienee! The point-blank
testimony of Price in the case of Kell
ogg, starts him out with $20,000 receiv
ed for his influence as a Senator in the
expediting of two routes in Louisiana
and Texas. Price dared not. or at any
rate did not approach Bradly with his
money, but ho boldly went to Kellogg
and offered him the $20,000 to boss the
job with Brady, which Kellogg agreed
to do, and finally did do to the eminent
satisfaction of Price whose pay was
tbCU increased from $2.7:13 to S2s.4OJ
on one route,and from $7,35() to $22,307
on the other. It will probably not dis
tuibthe serenity of Mr. Bradly to be
advised that Price swears that this
money was to be divided between him
stfif and Kellogg,and it only remains to
be discovered from the testimony of
Mr. Walsh, the broker in the case,
whether the money was so paid, and if
so paid—what are you going to do about
it ? 1 don't know what the line of Kell
ogg's defence is to be, but it is highly
probable that his council will contend
that it was a perfectly legitimate trans
action throughout, and will place his
client upon the country with the plea
that they all do it.
The movement in behalf of revenue
reform inaugurated in New York the
other day, has done much toward en
couraging. Mr. Morrison in pushing his
bill to a speedy,if not a completely suo
eesstul conclusion. There is no mistak
ing the fact that the present majority
in the House are going to do their part
toward lightening the burdens upon the
people by reducing to the lowest possi
ble limit those taxes that have boon
imposed by reason of -tho war. It is a
matter of detail only upon which the
Democratic members arc disagreed, for
Mr. Randall himself has repeatedly de
clared himself in fayor of the identical
propositions embodied in the New
York resolutions. No one knows any
better than Mr. Morrison,that human
ingenuity is not capable of devising a
measure that will subserve every local
interest in the country, and if Ohio
wool and Pennsylvania pig-iron and
Louisiana sugar and Maine hackme
tack and Massachusetts calico can not
look out for themselves when it comes
to. Congressional action, it will be of
no use to try to find anybody to look
out for tbem. * PHONO.
