Arriving Every Day Direct from the Manufacturers and Biggest Wholesale Clothing Houses of New York and Philadelphia, a MAMMOTH SPRING STOCK Of Men's and Boys' Best and Latest Styles of -C THIS is the result of my recent trip East, where I bought an Immense Quantity of Clothing to Supply all of our Twelve Eetail Stores. Buying so Extensively I naturally was able to obtain remarkably Close Wholesale Prices, and such as will enable us to supply our Albert Leajtrade at Closer Figures than ever were known in this City. This pleasing fact we are prepared to prove to all who call on us. No Last Year Styles or Last Year Prices! We have an Unusually large line of Youth's, Boys' and Children's Suits, COATS, PANTS, and VESTS, ITROOKS Which we will Positively Sell at what the Material Alone would Cost. Our first year here was so remarkably successful that we are determined to give even Better Bargains in v 1889. We have found that the people appreciate good goods, close profits, and ONE PRICE TO ALL. ONE price to all still holds good, and it is plainly marked on every article. More than this: We Guarantee every article to be as represented, and if there is the least dissatisfaction or complaint in any case, we will take the goods back or make the bargain good in cash. This is Square Dealing; it is right, and we have found that it wins. We extend a cordial invitation to all to call whether they want to buy or not.

Called from Canning Contemporaries of Interest ami Ideas Illus- trating local life. Lake Mills Star. What constitutes Christianity1J is a question that might be studied with much profit''. Ked Vv'lug Republican. It is said that a farmer in Hay Creek is spinning his own binding twine for the coming harvest. Houston Signal. Do the preachers who are so opposed to dancing and the inauguration ball forget that King David danced before the people? And no one found fault, except his wives, either. Minneapolis Tribune. A Dakota paper says, "after we get to be a full-fledged state Minnesota's name will be 'pants.'" This is vulgar, unkind and ungrammatical. Besides, Minnie doesn't wear pants. H. W. Elms to Austin Transcript. The Austin people in Seattle, and there are about forty or more, are pre- paring to unite with the Albert Lea people and have a grand Minnesota picnic in the near future. Spring Valley Vldette. Parties of ten or more can get ex- cursion rates to hear the Uon. It. G. Horr's lecture on the labor problem on March 15. Everybody should take advantage of hearing one of Ameri- ca's brightest orators. Mankato Free Press. The meeting of stockholders of the Natural Gas, Coal, Oil and Mineral Co. lacked a quorum last night, and an ad- journment was taken for two weeks. It is stated that work will be resumed soon at the well at Minneopa Falls. Austin Transcript. The meeting at Third Ward Chapel, will be continued every evening this week. Eev. E. B. Abbott, D. D., of Al- bert Lea is assisting and will be here every evening during the week. The interest in the meetings continues good. Fairmont Sentinel. The fur trade in this county, which at one time was the only means of the settlers' gaining a livelihood, has gradually fallen off until now dealers say it really amounts to nothing. Civilization has gradually driven out most of the fur bearing animals. StlUwater Democrat. Ex-Senator Sabin's household goods have begun -to arrive and that gentle- man and family will be with us again next week when they will again take up their abode. Unlike his predeces- sor he has still "some little use for Minnesota" if the people were thwart- ed in their desire to re-elect him. Waseca Herald. The law authorizing the commission- ers of this county to select and pur- chase a site for a poor farm and to erect suitable buildings thereon will enable the board, at its next session, to take steps toward selecting a suitable site. This done, the more delicate part of the job will have been accomplished. Fairmont Sentinel. E. P. Earl arrived in town "Wednes- day morning. He is cere this time to look after nuilding operations. He will have a large barn built on his Welcome farm and a new house put on his farm adjoining Mr. Payne's a few miles east of town. Mr. Earl is going into Ms old business, that of real estate; and expects to send outlets of land lookers this season. Montevedeo Leader. A. E. Ellickson, of the Madison Press, we learn, has accepted the position of assistant cashier of the Lac qui Parle County Bank. My, what a temptation it must be to a county printer to see the piles of money about Mm, but Ashley can withstand temptation. We have evi- dence of this in that he enjoys single blessedness. Fairmont Sentinel. While the open winter has been a great blessing to many people, there are some who would have been better off financially if the winter had been cold and stormy. There are hundreds of tons of fine hay scattered all over the county that can neither be sold nor given away. The last sMpments by our dealers proved a source of loss to them, and in one case not enough could be got for the hay to pay the freight. Pioneer Press March 4th. Port Townsend, Wash, advices from Alaska, per the steamer Ancan, are to the effect thatGov. A. P. Swineford, appointed from Marquette, Mich., and United States Marshal Barton Atkins have tendered their resignations, to take effect today, or as soon as their successors are appointed. GOT. Swine- ford is disposing of his property and mining interests in Alaska, and in- tends to return to Michigan to live. The Alaskans are urging John Brady, of Juneau, as Swineford's successor. Hokah Chief. A mistaken opinion has gone abroad that Houston .County is represented in the legislature this winter by men of little ability and that not one of the three could make a fact not say an intelligent word. This illusion is happily dispelled. One of our dis- tinguished statesmen in a fit of extem- poraneous eloquence seconded a motion to adjourn. The corridors of time as well as back stairs will echo his forensic ability. A brass band without the usual egg accompaniment awaits our hero. Winona Republican. Hon. Thomas Wilson arrived from Washington on Saturday morning and at once proceeded to his law office and began work as usual. He is looking well and f eeling first rate. He was glad to know that the people of Winona were pleased with the increased appro- priation for the government building in this city and was gratified with the expressions of appreciation of his own efforts in the matter. Judge Wilson remarked that it seemed good to get home again and begin his ordinary work as a private citizen. Preston Republican, When Major Hotchkiss awoke and attempted to get out of bed Tuesday morning, Ms nghtside failed to respond and he at once realized that he had suffered from a stroke of paralysis. He was all alone above his printing office, but after repeated efforts succeeded in clothing himself and getting down he did it, he says, he never knew, but attributes it to his indomit- able will power. When seen yesterday he was feeling more comfortable, and it is to be hoped that a period of per- fect rest will fully restore him to his old time vigor. His son Charles will take charge of the office for the present. Owatonna Democrat. A team belonging to Mr. P. McXelly living west of Blooming Prairie, rai away in tins city last .Saturday. Strik- ing against the chain that surrounds the park, they were thrown inside and badly injured. One of the horses is so badly injured that it is not expected to live. This is a heavy loss for Mr. Jic- Xelly as the team was a valuable one and he is not able to afford ttie loss without severe inconvenience. A Candid View of Washington Terri torj. Prof. James Brady, lately principal of the Albert Lea public schools writes as follows from .Seattle, where he is located, to the Caledonia Journal The Puget Sound is a beautiful sheet of water. This country is rich in fine timber, mostly fir and cedar. Coal mines are somewhat developed, and iron yet undeveloped. There are many fertile valleys which raise all kinds of agricultural products except corn. The uplands raise good fruit and vegetables. This is not an agricultural region for the present at least. Only patches are yet cleared. The growth of timber is so great that much labor is necessary to fit the soil for cultiva- tion. Life is too short for a man to attempt to clear a farm. There are some good towns in the territory, Seattle, Tacoma, Spokane Falls, Ellens- burg and others. The climate is fine, the weather for this first month in the territory is like a spring or autumn month in Minnesota only much more rain. I am well satisfied with the climate. The immigration is very great. People are flocking in from ail parts of the country. There are many wealthy people here and a great many more who have not a cent. There are many men who have employment and a great many more who cannot get em- ployment and who have not a cent to buy the next meal. It is a good coun- try for girls to get in pri- vate families from 320 to ?35 per month. Xo part of the country is more favorably situated and those of you who have plenty of money can do much better here than at home; but those of you who have limited means, think twice before coming. This is the Eight Doctrine. Lanesboro Journal. Xever send a dollar away from home when the article that dollar can pur- chase can be obtained at hone. Money is our financial blood. Its circulation keeps the business body alive. Bleed that body by sending your money away from home and soon trade will put on a look of lethargy and inactivity. Always trade at home. It is twice blessed. It helps the persons patron- ized, and finds its yon again. Spend your money with merchants who pay taxes, and are with you the year through. Important Notice. On June loth the copartnership of Wolden Wentz, harness makers, will be dissolved by mutual consent, and all should take notice that now is the time to buy harness goods, as our stock must be closed out before that date. All owing the firm will please call and settle at once as on April 15th all outstanding accounts will be turned over to an attorney for collection with- out further notice. 10t4 WOLDEN WENTZ. Observing the Proprieties. Chicago News. "Don't you know, Emily, that it is not proper for you to turn around and look after a gentleman V" But, mamma, I was only looking to see if he was looking to see if I was looking. Notice of Corporation Meeting. A meeting of the corporation of the Albert Lea Lutheran High School will be held at the Principal's office, Wed- nesday, March 27th, 1889, at 3 o'clock p. m., for consultation regarding the erection of school buildings, and for the transaction of such other business as may come before the meeting. T. A. TOKOEKSON, Chairman. Bristol, la., Feb. 9t3 An Epigram by Senator Evarts. Albany N. Y. Journal. Senator Evarts summed up the matter when he said to-day: "This will be an administration for republi- cans to swear by and not to swear at." For City Treasurer. Agreeably to the request of friends I announce myself a candidate for the office of city treasurer. My store is convenient for the office, and if chosen I will constantly give its duties my personal attention. I will appreciate the support of all who have confidence in me and deem me fit for the office. 10t2 A. H. SQUIEK. Why the Traitor Pigott was Created. Boston Herald.
