A telegram from Edgerly, North Dakota, says that "The artesian well here in which water was struck Monday mornlnp is throwing up an 1m- roonso body of walor mixed with beach sand, pieces of gold quartz, wood, lignite, coal and other minerals. Toward midnight it was Incidentally discovered that the water was heavily surcharged by gas, which took lire from one of I ho torches and was with difficulty extinguished. A elx.lnch conneotirg pipe laid laterally was then run outside the working tower, and the gas can now be lighted and oxtlDfi-utshod at will. If the supply of gas keeps up it will furnish light and fuel for all the uses of the town. The well Is about thirteen hundred feet deep, the hole through the earth be. ing eight inches in diameter, A six- tnoh casing runs at the bottom, and eight-inch casing runs about fifty feet down. A visitor to the well yester. day dug out of the sand in front of where the water empties a piece of quartz about half the size of a man's fist that contained a large amount of free gold. There Is great excitement here." There certainly ought to be no question about the excitement. A well like that ought to oe equal to a division of Coxey's army as an excitement producer.

[Spcrail LeKcr.l On the sBcoml d:i.y of November of this year tho French republic will elect a now president. Tins docs not mean that the country will bo unsettled for hulf a year, or even for two or three months. There will bo no torchlight processions, nor stump speeches. There Will, of course, be considerable wire- pulling anil scheming, but the people will hove 110 part in the excitement. On election day the two legislative chambers will meet iu joint session, and the candidate receiving a majority of all votes cast will be declared president of the French republic for a period of seven years. The French National Amombly. When the two chambers composing the legislative branch of the French government meet together they constitute tho "national assembly." The senate consists of three hundred members, seventy-five of whom hold office for life. The remaining two hundred and twenty-five are elected by an indirect process. Communes and municipalities elect what is termed "elec- tours senatoriaux," and the spmeet two months later to choose the senators. Any citizen of the republic Is eligible to the senate, provided he has attained the age of forty. The lower house, or "chamber of deputies," has five hundred and thirty-two members, who are elected by universal suffrage. Any citizen over twenty-five years of age. can become a deputy. In joint session the legislative branch of the government elects an executive, or president, whose term of office, under the constitution of February S, 1875, is seven years. The president is assisted by a council of state, consisting of nine members; and to them is intrusted the executive power. History of the French FrMldener* The first president of France under the new dispensation was Louis Adolphe Thlers, unquestionably the greatest Frenchman of his time. He was elected February 17,1871, but compelled to resign in 1878. He was succeeded by Marshal MacMahon, Napoleon's favorite and withal the most famous soldier of the second empire. Bis administration was characterized ' time bectime became : nnown' AU.pvor Europe a^'oneof the most disinterested patriots of the revolutionary and reconstruction periods. The opponents of Ferry and de Freycinet, knowing the weakness of their compatriots, had no difficulty in winning 1 the support of the populace for their compromise candidate. Curnot, the grandfather, was extolled by the press and the singers In the cafes chantdnt, and Sadi-Carnot, tho grandson, was made president amid the blowing of trumpets and tho bowlings of the multitudes. Curnot'fl Cleftn AdmlnlNtratlon. The croakers who predicted the downfall of the republic under Sadi- Caruot's administration were disappointed. Tho new president, it is true, did not develop :iny remarkable brilliancy, but he proved a, safe man. Whenever great crises (seemed to threaten the stability of the state, the president stood for the republic against monarchists, revolutionists and radicals.

Dupuy, the late prime minister, would have an excellent chance to win the office. Dupuy is not a popular man, but he enjoys the- respect of his colleagues and the people. Opposition to him would come from the clerical party, whose ascendency he has never neglected to antagonize in and out of the chamber. Among 1 other possible candidates for the presidency are M. Henri Brisson, M. Challcmel-Lacour, president of the senate; M. Constans, M. Kaynal and M. Cavaipuac. They are, without exception, strong and able men, in whose hands republican institutions would be safe. Nevertheless, for the sake of peace in Europe, it is to be hoped that President Carnot will be reelected by the national assembly. His rivals may be just as discreet as he, but Prance cannot afford to take chances with an untried man I at this critical period. Q. W.

THK State campaign will not open much before September 1st. PRESIDENT SADI-GABNOT, by remarkable firmness. He restored the diplomatic power of France and reorganized the army; but was fitted, neither by education nor inclination, to checkmate successfully tho conspiracies of political opponents. His resignation was accepted In 1879. After a heated campaign the national assembly elected as his successor Jnles Qrevy, a clover old gentleman with just enough tact to keep himself In popular favor until his son-in-law, Wilson, ruined him by engaging in the sale of orders and becoming connected with other doubtful schemes. No one believed that Qrevy knew anything about these dishonest transactions, but the scandal weighed so heavily on the president's mind that he considered it hia duty to resign. It was believed in every capital of Europe that the assembly would elect the brilliant M. Perry or daring de Freyoinet to succeed Qrevy, but when it came to a vote the statesmen could not unite on either of these truly great men, and tho choice foil on M. Sadi-Carnot, whose solo claim to consideration was a great ancestor. He was the first "dark horse" in modern French politics. Who Smdl-Cmmot In. Sadl-Carnot's grandfather, Count Lazare Nicholas Marguerite Carnot, is to republican Prance what Andrew Jackson is supposed to be to the democratic partisans of our own land. He •was a man of tho people, despite his rank and learning, and was elected to the natignal convention of 1793 without opposition. In 1T03 he wus chosen a member of tho committee of public fttfety. Subsequently he became war minister, in which position he displayed remarkable ability. His last appearance as a public man was sensational and somewhat grotesque. When Napoleon Bonaparte had been given up by most of his friends, Carnot stuck to his cause and acted as minister of the interior during that period of French history known as the "Hundred Days." Tho downfall of Napoleon c:ut short Carnofs career of usefulness. He left his native land and died in exile several years after tho restoration. His public services then were recognized by all classes of society, and in time French historians spoke of him as "tho organizer of victories." Old Carnot wus a republican from conviction; but he was a Frenchman above all things. He would rather serve Napoleon and see his native land respected than have the country ruled by weak republicans. In every one of Ws public acts he placed country above party, and.In M. CA8IMIB-PEKIEB. gist excitement turned the heads of the. rabble he dealt with the leaders'of the movement gently, but firmly. The popular idol was shown to be a thing of brass, soft as wax in tho hands of royalist conspirators who hoped to restore the decaying Bourbons to the throne of France. When the anarchists defied the law, the president refused to interfere with the judgments of the courts. Brilliant men are sometimes dangerous, especially in Prance. A true conservative, on the other hand, can govern the people of Paris with credit to himself and the nation. It is an old axiom that In a political sense, Paris is France. Sadi-Carnot knows the Parisians, and by dealing with them gently and firmly has won their admiration and respect Not even the Panama scandal, which ended so many public careers, affected his standing. Instead of defending the boodlers, he attacked them boldly, although many of them had been his 'friends for years. Then came his negotiations with Russia and the report of the Franco-Russian alliance, and popular enthusiasm know no bounds. But the president's greatest strength lies in the hold he has on the bourgeoisie, the powerful middle class of France, whoso. representatives honor ilm on account of the simplicity and purity of his home life. Taking all these points together, it is not unsafe to predict that President Carnot will be his own successor. Sam* Cudld»tM of Innnwuw. — Some Paris journals pretend 'to believe that the president will not be a candidate for reelection. Should there be any truth in this statement, M. Casimir-Perier would, in all probability, be his successor. This brilliant and pyrotechnic statesman is at present at the head of the ministry. He Is an eloquent speaker and consummate leader of men. With a strong devotion to republican institutions he unites a penchant for .traditional etiquette. His strength is said to be due to personal magnetism, and some Paris journals have gone so far as to compare his individuality with that of the late James G. Blftino. His influence has at different times been sought by emissaries of the Bourbon claimants, and leaders of the radical party. He has declined to treat with either faction, however. There Is no doubt th*t had he listened to th« overtures made to him during the Panama soandal period and thrown his Influence with royalists or socialists, he would now be a duke under a Bourbon king or the president of a socialistic republic. But devotion to true progress and liberty M. wrptrr. proved stronger than love of place or power, and enabled him to assist President Carnot to pilot the republic safely through the most dangerous The Ran Remit* of the Llvei of Two Noble Hen. There is a rich man who makes a practice of rescuing every year a poor boy from the slums of New York, and of transplanting him to a comfortable home either east or west There is a society that does this work on a large scale by organized agencies, but this benevolent man prefers to interest himself personally in the pathos of neglected child life in a great city. He keeps a boy under his eyes for weeks before ho decides to aid him in getting on In the world. Sometimes he has several candidates on trial at once, and he studies their characters with painstaking care. When he is convinced that there is good stuff In the boy, and that there are no vicious traits which will render the experiment hazardous, he offers to befriend him. The boy is fitted out with a new suit of clothes, and is sent to another city or to the country, and is placed in a family where he will be carefully watched over, provided with steady employment, and trained for a life of usefulness. The good man receives reports from the boys' new friends, and corresponds with them regularly himself. Not infrequently he visits them in their homos to find out how they are doing. His Interest and pride in their progress and success could hardly ba greater If they were his own children. When th*y have opportunities of buying small farms and settling down, or for going into business for themselves, he becomes their banker, advancing money to them on mortgages, or befriends them in other ways. A similar work was carried on by Gen, Gordon when he was superintending tho Thames defenses at Oravesend, during the interval between his Chinese and Nile campaigns. He rescued boys from tho streets and after clothing them, kept them for weeks in his own house. He established a school for neglected children in his home, and taught the classes himself. Bis house fairly swarmed with poor children, and had its hospital wards as well as its school-rooms. For many of these poor boys he obtained berths on vessels, and bespoko for them good treatment from the officers, He called them his sea-kings, and corresponded with them, giving them good advice and encouragement Visitors at bU house noticed a large map of the world hanging over his mantelpiece, with pins stuck into it here and there. Those pins represented the sea-kings. \Vhennver he received a letter from a boy at sea, it was his habit to take out a pin and insert it at the port whera the letter was written. In this way he kept track o! the boys as they sailed tb« sese. Whenever he glanced at the mip he could tell how many of his royal youngsters were afloat, and whera each of them was at the last writing. These men have done their work silently and without observation. They won the boys' hearts, saved them from degradation, developed in thorn true manhood. Such men ennoble humanity, and are the pioneers of a higher civilization.—Youth's Companion. A Stae'i Extraordinary Adventure.
