There nre three establishments de- nominated the Harring- ton House, being conducted with a de- irree of success, considering the ham- pered and illy-arranged building, that nil the guests. Harrington Son are competent to manage a first- clat-s hotel, and the capitalists of Albert Lea. with a proper comprehension of their own interests and the public wants, will soon, probably, adopt meas- ures for the erection of a hotel building creditable to their growing town, and place Harrington Son in charge. NEW STRUCTURES. The building improvements during 1 the year 1870. have been largely in ex- t cess of those of any preceding A I business block, of brick, by Mr. White, j and an elegant residence by Capt. Coch- rane and also one by Mr. KiVclson are among the most prominent: but a mul- titude of smaller but comfortable struc- tures have given active employment to ull the mechanical forces, and created a bi isk demand during (he year for build- ing material. To appreciate the scenery of Albert Lea and its surroundings, one must choose the summer months, when the margins of the delightful lakes are car- peted with their verdure and their forests, and realize the extent of the work of nature in combining at thia point the useful with the best typo of the ornamental.- Yours, VISITOR. NICHOLAS SMITH, .of rierkimercouij- 'ty, N. Y., has made- as high as Ibs. of cheese, shipping weight, in one year, from a lierd of twenty cows. He makes his milk up at home, and sells for the prices paid in Herkimer market. He sells every fortnight, thus saving shrinkage. He also keeps the cows and none but the best; and slops them a.little in the spring and at times of drouth, and does not overstock farm. His cows do not come in oarly, and he has early cut hay to feed them from the time of calving un- til they are turned to the pasture. Probably most any dairyman witji .the same care in selecting and treating his sto.ok'andiin" the-manufacture and sale of his cheese, could also show a yield of 710'poatidB to a cow. SPAPERf
