Dr. Spaulding, formerly connected with the Homestake hospital in Lead, is having a big practice in Johannesburg, and is making five and six pounds ($2.r( to f30) a day. Livingstone Edwards is a corporal in the British army, and has a good position awaiting him as soon as he receives his discharge. Mr. Pyle spoke of hearing cannon-idin at Johannesburg, during one of the recent engagements. Altho a Boer sympathizer, Mr. Pyle does not express his views with any particular emphasis, as his letters are opened, and if they were very pronounced in tone, they would be intercepted. He is- delighted with Jouannesburg, and says it is a good place to live.

To make it apparent to thousands, 1675, while on his way from kia to Mackinaw in a canoe. His red companions buried him,, according to Parkman, by a small stream in the west of Michigan, "some distance south of the promontory called the Sleeping Dear." Later the body was removed to St. Ignace, many miles to the northward of Frankfort, and on the other side of the straight separating Michigan's two parts. There the traveler who had gone so far rested quietly, and after awhile the exact position of his grave was forgotten, a fact due, possibly, to inappreciation of Jesuit priests by a majority of those who were glad enough to walk into a new land along paths which he had opened as a discoverer and rendered comparatively safe by the effect which his virtues had produced on the Indian tribes. The position of the grave at St. Ignace, however, was reestablished to the general satisfaction in 1877, and with this determination of the matter the railway men and real estate speculators? of Frankfort will have to contend. While cordially sympathizing with their desire to make the metropolis of Benzie county interesting, and while thoroughly agreeing with whatwetake to be their belief that the grave of Pete Marquette would be about the most interesting possession a Michigan town can hope to have, we must confess to serious doubt as to the authenticity of their find. There is no easily imaginable reason why the far-wandering Frenchman should have been burled at Frankfort, many why he should have been carried to St. Ignace. StiU. Michigan Historical Society C"f ht to know more about the subject then we do, and if, as is reported, its members support the claims of Frankfort's antiquarians, of course that goes far toward upsetting received theories and establishing new ones. Anyway, there should be no quarrels over Pete Marquette's bones. He was a man of peace, notable In his day and in many later days, because he helped instead of harming the Indians, and neither killed them nor was killed by them. Holiday Wines?! THE SULTAN'S TROUBLE. The heart of every humane spendthrift will be deeply touched by the Bufferings of the Sultan of Turkey in the situation where he has been placed by the ingenious efforts of Germany to collect a little bill due Mr. Krupp, and . by the same occasion, one due herself. Learning that Turkey was about to pay the long overdue indemnity to the United States through the indirect and sub-terreanean channel of a contract with the Cramps for a cruiser, Germany Interposes with a demand that before the Ottoman Empire buys any more warships it must settle its accounts with the Krupps. It is understood by everybody, of course, that this merely a way of compelling the payment of money owed to Germany, the amount duo to be added to the Krupp Mil. This .proceedings is not only summary but sumptuary. It gets the Sultan again Into trouble with the United States, for we had been gradually Increasing the pressure on him until It had become unbearable, and as we have nothing to do with other accounts payable, the plea that Germany prevents his settling with us cannot he accepted. He Is now subjected to double pressure. It must be incom-enient. But the sumptuary aspect of the matter is Interesting. The old laws which bore that name aimed to regulate a man's manner of life. They forbid him to spend too much money for silk raiment, expensive vintages, and fast horses. It has not been nsual to put sovereigns under the restraints of sumptuary laws. Germany's reminder about the. Krupp account ambounts to that. She says in effect, you must pay us before you can be permitted to add to your navy. Yet Turkey may really need another cruiser, and the bare necessaries of life are always excepted from the prohibitions of sumptuary law. However, no way of looking at the tan's troubles relieves him from it, mr offers encouragement. It gets distinctly deeper. Yet any really stern measures that we might take to col-leBt our dues would probably involve us In labors we are not Just now ready to undertake, and would tend to pile the Pelion of the old Eastern question upon the Ossa of the new. o ANTI-VICE CRUSADE.

Christmas exercises were held In St John's Episcopal church In this city Friday night, on the Feast of the Holy Innocents. A magnificent Christmas tree had been arranged, and the Interior of the church had been decorated appropriately. A Christmas .cantata, .entitled, "The Son. of the Highest;" was given by the children of the Sunday school, and was prettily appreciated by the peoeple present The cantata was rendered with excellent effect, and It spoke volumes for the attention that had been devoted to its preparation. The Christmas tree was laden with presents, candles, and wax tapers, and was a brilliant arrangement. After the exercises the presents were distributed, and every one was remembered. A number of valuable presents were found on the tree for various persons present: Archdeacon Ware and wife were pleasantly remembered, and they received a large AND SPRING WAGONS between Congressman Gamble and Congressman-elect Martin for the purpose of making the former senator next month and the latter the successor of Mr. Kyle two years later. Such rtatements are an injustice to Mr. Martin, for no man In politics has a Ugher regard for the rights of the preat mass of voters. Altho the Pioneer-Times has not discussed politics with Mr. Martin since the election, it willtfssume the responsibility of a positive assertion "that Mr. Martin has not entered into a combine with any one, nor made any plans or proposals having for an object the selection of a successor to Sweater Kyle or Senator Pettigrew either, for that matter. The object in view, is by these false htatements to create dissensions In the republican party and, if possible, create distrust among the leaders. Made exclusively for the Black Hills trade.
