And Orders Attended to Sight or tuy. Ai. Immense Stuck of FURNITURE! As has been the custom ot the STANDAKD for many years, we present a detailed record of the improvements of Albert Lea during the past year, and it is a showing that cannot other- wise than prove gratifying to every citizen of the corporation as well as to the people of Freeborn county. It shows a large increase over and better than all, it is not based on a fic- titious boom, inflated expectations or speculative efforts. It is substantial and permanent, and affords real grounds for confidence in the future increased progress and prosperity of the city. The following is a complete record 'of the improvements for 1888, by wards: TIEST WABD. 0 F Nelson, residence 800 Jno Johndrti, Jesse llartett, C X Ruble, improvements on residence 300 Mrs Mary Armstrong, residence TheoNaeve, residence Wra Fenholt, improvements on residence. tjO Waiter Thompson, barn and other imp 150 Geo Drommerliausen, barn and shed IX C M Wilkinson, imp on residence LOGreene, G00 Mr Berglund, residence Albert Lea College, addition 8 J Johnson, imp on residence Mrs E C Stacy, imp on residence 1 G Taylor, improvements John Cain, residence Amos Frisby, barn Nels Johnson, barn Louis Peterson, barn Chas Cnristopherson, residence 600 H Ellickson, addinon to residence aiu OCHayden, residence 500 J C Tusen, residence 500 S addition to barn 'a corps of able and efficient ministers of the gospel. Of the schools we have re- cently spoken quite fully. The estab- lishment of the Lutheran Academy during the year is an important event in the educational history of the city. A fine building will be erected by the trustees during the present year. Throughout the city, rendered beau- tiful beyond comparison with all her sisters by broad, smooth streets, shaded avenues, a lovely lake, handsome busi- ness houses and attractive homes, are to be seen to the evidences of the enter- prise, thrift, ambition and pride of the people. The business of the past year has ex- celled any year of the past. It repre- sents the wisdom resulting from diversified farming, which has trans- ferred Albert Lea into a leading mart for cattle, hogs, horses, butter, cheese, eggs, poultry, potatoes and seeds. This change promises increased wealth each year both to the farmers and traders. Theicoming year is big with events of progress. The horoscope of the city's destiny displays the completion of the Uuluth, Bed Wing Southern railway and the beginning of work on at least one and possibly two others, and the location of a division with its shops for that named; the establishment of an extensive pork-packing business, of a manufactory of agricultural machin- ery, the introduction of a system of water works in connection with the artesian wells, and a complete system of street lighting; the erection of the Lutheran Academy building, and sev- eral other important enterprises not yet fully matured. No more mercan- tile houses or shops are needed; there is hardly room for more, but manufac- tories will be welcomed, and with its six and possibly seven lines of railroads and nearness to the Iowa coal fields, no city offers better opportunities to such establishments. The coming year is radiant with the sunshine of promise. It is auspicious with the real tokens of progress, and with characteristic faith, enterprise ability and pluck, the citizens of Albert Lea will work and build and march along the ways of advancement during the Happy Kew Year. 75 _J5 600 125 Total. j'rl'-tl. me We make a Curtate FUtwa, oOTCilstoft-rs, Make no mistake; call an J our Bargains.

The following pointed and timel; remarks are from the advanced sheets of the fifth biennial report of Hon D. L. Kiehle, superintendent of publi instruction of the state, for the schoo years of 1887 and 1888: It has seemed to me that state aid tc popular education must be afforded i the schools of the country are to be im proved; it now seems just as necessar that the state should see to it that th munificent provision made by the na tion and the state be carefully am wisely expended in the interest o which they are set apart. I respectf u !y suggest that there are some thing in which the authority of the stat should be expressed without equivoca tion or indefiniteness. and such legis lation should be enacted as will favo these important ends. 1. Our common schools must American. The time has comet'when the stal must give additional emphasis to th importance of the common school a an ally of the state in training a intelligence and loyal American cit zenship. But to the public school specially committed the training an instruction that belongs to an Amer can citizenship. The first requisit then, is that they teach thoroughly tl English language as the language c the country. This is the language of ANOTHER SAWMILL. be Oljc Harbor Lumber Company's Hill Xovt in Operation. dcoma Ledger. The Gig Harbor Lumber company's ew mill has just started up and is now utting feet of lumber daily, he double circulars have been cutting umber for the wharf for several weeks, ut the other machinery of the mill as been running for only a few days. The main wharf, 450 feet in length nd 80 feet wide, with a piling capacity or feet of lumber has been ompleted, and in a short time ships ill be lying there loading for foreign orts, two vessels being already due, amely, the ship Mineveh and schooner "L.
