At the regular meeting of the council Monday evening May mh the roll call showed that only President Hanson and Aldermen Wiegand, Lowe and Hit-hards were present. Alderman Knatvold afterwards came in and as- Mimed his seat. The minutes of previ- ous meetings were then read and ap- proved. -Mr. Lowe reported that he and Mr. Hanson examined the Hatch bridge and agreed that it is in bad siiape; that they could only see one thing to do, and that is, to build a new bridge. He considered it unsafe to drive over with a loaded wagon. Mr. Hanson stated that Mr. Morin agreed to pre- sent the matter to the county board and ask that they bear part of the expense of building a new bridge The matter was therefore laid over The committee on supplies was au- thorized to find out cost of a carload of hard wood lumber for crossings The matter of 8600 due from the state was laid over. Parker presented ;he matter of the insurance on city iall, engine, jail, huse and the city- clerk was authorized to renew the polices for with same agents I) THE SOUTH ALSO HAS A KICK I'KOBLEM. iixliou XiMvniaii SajM It llrtweeu American Born and Foreign Born.

PEOPERTY The most suooeitful and most durable of all harvesting maohines. Contains every device needed io make a machine perfect. Made of the best material and in the best way. Light draft and easy work for driver and hones. Easiest raised and lowered of any harvester. There is no weight on the horses' necks; no tearing of canvas or straps for there are springs to relieve the strain caused by shrinkage; no choking at front of elevators, for their is a relief rake to prevent it. No other Binder has this valuable device. Everything on the CHAMPION has been made as simple and substantial as possible. No other Harvester has as good cutter bar and guards, or as many and as good knives, or as strong and adaptable reel, or as sim- ple a method of driving the Binder, nor as good plan for squaring the butts of the bundles. The CHAMPION Butter is unlike any other, and is auperior to LtlGIH till. The CHAMPION will cutall kinds of small grain that grow no matter in what condition; it is lighter draft than any other Harvester doing the same work- it is easily managed by any farmer; it will cause less trouble and expensa for repairs it will make less delay in harvest time, and it will do more work and be more durable than any other Harvester and Binder that is made. THE WARDER, BUSHNEI.L QLESSNER COMPANY, OHIO.------MANUFACTURERS------CHICAGO, ILL. and of the street sprinklino- committee reported that owing to the failure of Famsu urth to proceed with sprinkling promptly as required by the committee they the committee had been compelled to employ McGovern k Anderson. That owing to the severe storm of dust and dirt it was very important that sprink- ling be done immediately. That in the opinion of the committee Farnsworth Edwards should not have the con- tract, and that it should be awarded to McGovern Edwards. Mr. Edwards being present, asked for a hearing and claimed that his firm had done every- thing in their power, sparing no ex- pense, to get ready for sprinkling, and H--M 'T had good faith to lulfull their contract. He claimed that no contract was made until it was approved by the council, and that therefore his lirni wa.s not obliged to begin sprinkling until such approval Mr. M legand claimed that it was the duty ol Farnsworth Edwards to have begun sprinkling at once that they agreed to do so and failed On motion of Mr. Knatvold the report of the committee was accepted and placed on file. Thin the action of the committee is not interfered with and McGoyern Anderson will proceed with the sprinkling. The electric lighting question was then considered. Mr. M'iegand opposed contracting for more than the present number of lights, as more lights would cost more and cause more dissatisfac- tion. Mr. Knatvold moved that i'amswortu Edwards be offered the same contract as hist year for the same number of lights. It was adopted Mr. Lowe refused to vote for it, as he said it gave the moonlight too good a chance. The Freeborn County .STAND-U-D was declared the oflicial city paper for the ensuing year. Mayor Wilkinson gave notice of the appointment of Gep. A. lioye and Ole J. Flaaten as policemen. The com- munication was laid over on the objection that policeman refused to light the lamps. The city clerk was directed to collect licenses for billiard and pool tables from May 1st to July 1st at .S1U a year pro rata. The bond A. G. Hrumlin in the sum of S100UO with. I. G. lirumlin, Chas.

The clerk was authorized to obtain a copy of the new city charter from the secretary of state at an expense not to exceed 1% cents a folio.

Lanesboro Journal. In speaking of the gold, found at tt halan recently, Mr. II. J'itkin, who was in California in '49, and followed mining several years, says if it is as heavy and as rich as stated, it mio-lit be well to look the ground over care- fully. After finding the gold in the crops of the geese several years ago which belonged to Mr. Casey, Mr. Tit- kin took a pan and found gold at sev- eral points between Lanesboro and fact, wherever he attempt- ed it. He thinks gold exists alono- Koot river in quantities sufficient to pay for working. We have since learned that the nugget found by ilr King weigiied almost live ounces in- stead of three and a quarter.
