Tli'', weekly assembly is evidently
becoming more popular, Tin's week's
was, without exception, tho best tliut
litis been held yet. There was a largo
attendance and the entertainment commenced at 8:,'j0. Mr. J. P. Armstrong
officiated as chairman. The first number on the programme was a song by
Mr. Plowright, ''TheMidshipitiite,"
whicli was well received. This was
followed by a song from Mr. Owen
'���The future Mrs. 'Awkins," which
created considerable amusement. The
number which followed was probably
the star piece of the evening, It ulso
was a song and was rendered by one of
Golden's favorites, Mrs. Moodie. Quite
a timo hns elapsed since Mrs. Moodie's
hist appearance ill public, and iu the
"Queen of the Earth" she ably sustained her reputation us a singer.
Being vigorously encored she gracefully responded witli '��� I am weary
waiting alone." Mr. J. P, Armstrong
then gave one of his humorous readings, "Paddy the Piper,' which so
delight a Golden audience. Capt.
Armstrong followed with a son-j,
���'Our skipper and Our crow," which
he rendered with good effect, and being
loudly encored he responded by repeating tlie lust verse. The next was
a song by Mr. Plowright, "Tom Bowling," followed liy another .selection
from Mrs. Moodie, "In Old Madrid."
Mr. Owen then told the audience how
he " Knocked tbeni in the 01.1 Kent
Road," whicli completed the first part
of the programme. Tlie chairs were
soon hustled to one side and dancing
was commenced and kept up till one.

cx|ierience of Henry HiiUenstein, who
was frightfully burned nhont the face

shop at 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon.
Ho is now at his home, 4oi Wist
Congress street, swathed in bandages,
uud vows ho will novel again attempt
to light it ci. ii while a barber is
putting tonic on his hair. Fritz Hotz,
tho barber who was catering to his
customer's wants, fared almost as
badly as Mr. Hnllensteiu, His right
baud wus burned mid one half of his
long blonde mustache was singed in
such a manner that he was obliged to
trim it short.
After Mr. Hallenstoin had been

Mr. Hallensteiu knew that Fritz
wanted him to uso Mr. Otto's tonic
and he conseutel. The barber had
dius'la considerable amount of this

tiie latter decided lie wanted to smoke,
Ho pulled out. u cigar and asked for u
light. There were uo mutches ut baud
so he took a piece of shaving paper,
folded it up aud lighted it from the
gas jet. As hu brought the burning
pii'ier close to tlie cigar the alcoholic
fumes from thu tunic igliiied. There
was a sudden Hush of iluiuc, und Mr
Hallensteiu, scivuiuiiig at the top of
his voice, leaped from thu chair,
Fritz grabbed a towel and as quickly
ns possible smothered the Humes.
Mr. ll.illenstein was burned badly
iiliout the face, ears uud neck. The
skin all peeled off. His eyebrows,
mustache and hair were badly singed.
Ho was taken t,o Dr. Jewett's otticc,
"hcro-his wounds were dressed. Fritz
himself bus not escaped injuries. His
right huii'l was severely burned. One-
half of his long mustache was burned
away. AVheii one of his fellow barbers took a pair of shears and clipped
the other side to make it mutch Fritz
almost cried with grief. During bis
excitement lie threw away the bottle
containing the mysterious tonic. It
struck square on tho back of Elsworth
lluwley, thu barber who wus cutting a
man's hair iu ihu next chair. The
man jumped up and ran outside and
did not return for hu'l au hour. There
was a groat deal ol confusion in the
barber's shop, and during the aitcriioou
curious people peeped through the windows to see what was the matter,
Mr. Otto, tiio proprietor, was uot iu
the shop when tlie accident occurred.
He is a German. When he saw tho
barber's bund in bandages l.e inquired
what the trouble was. When iufoi'm-
ed what hail happened bo became
excited and could S.iy nothing. He
would not say of what tiio tonic was
made, and ran out of his place o\er to
the doc"or's oliiee.

National Bank of Mexico is tlio victim
of a remurkable robbery. Ou Tuesday
one oi the tellers was counting out the
coin by piling up the heavy sucks of
silver, ,'ach containing 1,1.00 silver
dollars, when a well dressed young
man sauntered into the room, nnd
while attention wus directed elsewhere,
picked up one cf tlio sucks aud strolled
out. Beckoning to a burden carrier,
who was waitiug for a job ou the
st reet corner, he handed hiiu the sack

streets for u block to the nearest street

Too first turnpike road from Balti-

I wus laid out 111 this way. A similar road
I from Washington to Cumberland, 1.10
miles long, Vi-.id also constructed about
thu Raino timo. The Cumberland roud
was curried IliS miles farther, to thu east
bank of the Ohio river, lu rough the states
of Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia.
Then it was extended westward SO miles
to Zanesville ami thence through the
elates of Ohio, Indiana and Illinois to St.
Louis. This colossal chain of public
highways co:it tlie government upward
of ?'!.,1W.U!0(l to construct. It is known
in history an the Cumberland road system, anil tho effect it had upon travel
aud transportation wus enormous. Before it was built it took eight duys to
travel from Baltimore to Virginia. After
it was finished tha journey wus mado iu
three days.
Many other chains of highways were
constructed under the supervision of tho
war department, almost every state in
the Union shariug to come extent in
this policy of internal improvement.
Under (Jeucral Jackson a stop was put
to tlio expenditure of money by the general government for roadbuilding purposes, but up to that time it hud already
spent over $30,000,000 iu creating and developing state highways and canals.
It u interesting lo look back at tho
roaduiiiking of our great-grandfathers.
lu tho older st-ates many hundreds of
miles of plank roads wore built at acost
of $1,21,0 per inilel drawl roads wero
also built very extensively along tho
banks of rivers. Ouo of the best types
nf the surlier roads built in thia counVry
was the charcoal roud.
This stylo of road was generally laid
through njftrshy forests. Timber was
cut in 34 foot lengths and piled up lengthwise In tlie center of tho road until the
pile wus ubout 1") feet high. This pilo
was thou covered with earth taken fvo-ii
ditches on either tiido of tin; road. T ion
it wus burned until tho wood wan perfectly charred, and then the pile wan
raked down to lho width of 10 feet, with
a depth of two feet in the middle and 1 f
oue foot at either aide. These charcoal
roads became very compact end free
from dust. The cost of building such :i
roud was about >':fi(,'0 per mile'. All these
early typos of roads were used for tho
most part in tho country districts.���New

quickly reached the scene of confusion,
followed hy the matron and her sister.
Dr. Donovan, for such was the horoe's

should ever be without) he managed
to squirt a few teaspoofuls of water on

alter a few anxious moments, to keep
tlie fire under, nnd was ably supported
through all tho trying or leal by the
matron and her sister, the last unnisd

a tin dipper to great advantage. The

satisfactorily, no screams proceeded
from the mouths of tin females (this
is a positive fact and sworn to). Word

Jackson Peters did uot seem tobewholly
satisfied. "Perhaps the bears out there
swim/* from branch to branch by their
tails," hu suggested lu u tone of fine oar
"Impossible," answered Jones. "It was
a prairie country, ho there were no trees
und consequently no bears, Besides, bears
havo no tails. Vou show a lamentable Ig-
uorance of both geography and natural history. It was while at Jones City that I
patented my Dakota pumpkin anchor. Before that it was impossible, as you doubt*
less know, to raise this nutritious vegetable in the territory."
"Np, I didn't know it," returned Jackson
Peters.   "Why wus it impossible!'"

Volcanic Kruption. lint it was a severe
blow to the town when it lost the county
seat. At that time���it wits 10 years ago���
tlie Dakota courthouses wore kept on
wheels, 1 may almost say. One afternoon
a purtyuf men from Jtiinpersbiirgcrept up,
hitched six unties on my courthouse and
trotted away witli it to their own town.
"Cut I was not discuuraged and determined ou tlie boldeststrukecveratleinpieil
III the territory. It wns nothing more nor
less than lotiringtliccapitiil buildingiluwu
from Hlsmarck and put it iu the place ot
my courthouse, thus makiug Jones City
tbe capitol of the territory. Fearing that
tlie old territorial oflicers might nut come,
I hired a new set of officials, including n
governor, auditor, judges, attorney general
and so forth, choosing them mostly Irani
my old county officers, who had lieen left
behind, llorrowing the courthouse wheels

officers. BO lending citizens and 1(1 spans uf
mules uud prnceeded to Hlsmarck.
"Under cuver of darkness we ndjnsted
the wheels and hitched on the mules. .Most
of my officials tuuk their places iu the several rooms, nnd as the level rays of the ris-
Ingsuii shot athwart the broad plain, carpeting it with clnt Ii of cold and waking the
songbirds to melody nnd the wild Mowers
to prodigality of fragrance, I touched up
the wheel mules Irom the front portico, and
v.-c rolled away out of town, with my governor on the roof blowing a tin horn anil
my superintendent of schools, a very conservative mail, on top of the chimney llriug
bis revolver in the air and singing 'Hail Columbia.' It was a noble scene, ami one
which lives in my memory, but the effort
was a failure. Gentlemen, 1 left Dakota
without a cent In tlie world."
Jones rested his cheek in his hand and
looked at tbo floor.
"But tell us what was the difficulty,"
said Hobii.son,
"Yes, it is no more than right that yon,,)
should know. When we were about 10.
miles out, my attorney general came to uih
nnd raised a point of law. It was this:
That Junes City would not become the le-
Kal capital of the territory unless we had
tlie cellar which belonged under the capitol
building. I Kiivutbo reins to my territorial
secretary uud directed the attorney general
instantly to 111 lug a test case before the district court then sitting in Its chamb-rs on
the lirst floor. It decided that he was right.
Thin ns we rattled along across tbe prairie
I appealed the case to the supreme court,
nn tne second Moor. It, continued the decision of the biwer com'",. I instantly
stepped, unhitched the mules and went
buck alter the cellar.
"We were all arrested at Bismnrck, with
the aid of iro ips fruin Fort A. Lincoln, for
abduction, It appeared thut the beggarly
janitor of the capitol was hidden in his
room in tlie attic, and that we had kidnapped the scoundrel without knowing it.
