NELSON Ar SORENSON, Dealers in Boots and Shoes. Broad- way, Albert, Lea, Minn., United States of America. Evidently the times a century ago and more were not all gilt edged. Hu- man nature was capable of some des- picable displays then as now Mr -Morris refers to the bickerings and local selfishness developed by the ef- forts to frame and have adopted the federal constitution. Rhode Island wanted the slave trade maintained, while Virginia, as the breeding ground of human chattels, strove to have it abolished. things went on de- clares the writer, "with a loss in the custom houses and iiscal agencies nearly ten times in percentage that which now occurs, with frauds and stealings ot all sorts, which are set forth in all manner of reports and blue books with a heat and personal bitter- ness of politics, and w ith a universal nepotism in the matter of appoint- ments which, if practiced to-day, would make the press iairly howl." Mr. Morris touches upon the rancor of the earlier days as it appeared in the correspondence of the time, the "allusions to rascality m trust, tergiv- ersations in politics and greed for oflice. Little incidents like the steal- ing of the ballot-boxes in Ulster coun- ty in Clintoniaii times crop out con- stantly; and the good old chancellor Kent) seems from the time of the dowutall ot the Federal party to have been (irmly set in the opinion that greed tor money, lust after oflice and hereeness in politics were sure event- ually to destroy thr- republic." lu Mr. Morns'estimation the present shows marked improvement in many respects.

Penalties of line and imprisonment are provided for failure to obtain the proper license. Concerning this quite important law the Red Wing Kepubli- can says that a prominent attorney of that city says the law applies to every one sells milk. In his opinion if a man owning a cow furnishes milk to his neighbor fora consideration he will under this law be compelled to-take out a license. This interpretation if correct-and the source from which it emulates leaves very little doubt of the law as exceedingly unjust. There are in this city, as well as in- many other towns in the state a number of people whose income is de- rived wholly from the product of a few- cows they have been able to secure. Some of them are poor and even the payment by them one dollar each lor licenses would deprive them of some comforts and perhaps necessities Considering the fact that there seems, to be no practical benefit to be derived from the law it appears in this IHit to be an unjustly oppressive measure Jhe Search for Gas at Stillivater to Continue. Stillwater Democrat. After the breaking of the cable at the gas well last week it was quite frequently remarked that theijj would be no more drilling and that the well would be abandoned. Hut such is not the case. A number 01 our citizens who have heretofore not been interest- ed in the search for gas now express their willingness and to see the work go on and are willing to take stock. A new cable will be purchased and additional improvements will be made around the well. Work will be resumed as soon as possible. None of our citizens wish to see the enterprise abandoned and it is hoped that their search will not be in vain, but that thev will before long strike gas in paying quantities. A sample ot the last speci- mens taken out at a depth of 8 440 feet was handed to Prof. Lehnen, a practic- al geologist, who pronounced them entirely different from any specimens yet taken out and said that the chances tor striking gas were as good now as over. A Number of Lasting Historic Value. Number 1600 of Harper's Weekly issue on Wednesday, May 8th, is a most comprehensive pictoral and literary record of the Washington Cen- tennial Celebration. It consists of thirty-two pages arid a cover, and contains two great engravings of four pages each, one showing the Naval Pa- rade in the Upper Jiay, and another a part of the Millitary Parade passino- the Previewing Stand'. Other subjects of illustration in this remarkable number are the Centennial Ball and Banquet.

The 17th of May celebration at Hart- land was a grand success, and a credit to those who managed the affair. The exercises of the day were very interest- ing, the leading leatures being the ora- tion, which was ably delivered by Iver A. Itodsaiter, and a'base ball game be- tween Xew Kichland and Hartland which was hotly contested, resulting m a victory for the Kichlanders. There was a very large crowd in attendance and all seemed to enjoy themselves to the fullest extent. The STANDARD representative noticed with much sat- isfaction the numerous handsome young ladies that lined the streets and tilled the stores, and was led to the pleasant conclusion that the young men ot Uartland are to be greatly envied. n e should not neglect to acknowl- edge the obliging and kindly courte- sy of Mr. Porter, the popular railroad agent at Hartland. He is the right man for the place, and the favor he ex- tended to the Albert Lea boys will not soon be iorgotten. Olut' Lee was doing a rushing busi- ness at the old stand, as were also S Samuelson and Stensrud Madson. We also had the pleasure of shaking hands with L. M. Due, the hardware and machinery dealer, and found him a gentleman whom it is a pleasure to know. Gilbert Pakke of the creamery is one 01 Hartland's most progressive and successful business men, and is in every- way worthy of the large patronage he enjoys. The dance in the evening was largely attended, and was a social as well as a financial success. It was given under the auspices of the Hartland brass band, which, by the way, is making good progress under Julius Sibilrud's leadership. Mike Sheehan, Thos. Donovan Ilun-h Armstrong and Pat. Farry "took in" the celebration, and tried to pass them- selves off as genuine Norwegians and might have succeeded if the "brogue' hadn't given them away. A street faker was playing his tiade and catching suckers by the score un- til some of the town board "kicked and Constable P. Kugroden ordered him to .stop. On thii whole, the celebration was 01 deny and enjoyable, and its we were whirled home on the Cannon Ball in the evening, we felt that the hours we had spent among the hospitable people of Hartland were among the pleasant- est of our recollection.
