The force was so great that gravel and sand were thrown lifty i'ett or more into the lir, and the roar of the escaping gas be heard for a longdistance. The veil being near IIr. OKon's barn, a re- lucer was put on the two-inch casing n the well and the gas was carried in in an indi-and-a-half pipe about 1UO "eet to a safe distance.

NELSON SORENSON, Dealers in Comfort-Giving Boots and Shoes, Broad way, Albert Lea, Minn., United States of America Some FactH Abont the Biff Jniie Festival to Be Held in JliiineupoliM. The program for the great Nortli- vestern sa-ngerfcst and Gilmore's ubilee festival, to beheldinllinneapo- is June iuth. 21st and iind, promises a are and most exquisite, musical treat. similar lias ever been attempt- on so grand a scale in the Xorth- vest. Nearly all the great masters of lassical and modern music are repre- 5ented on the program by selections rom their most popular works, and the eading performers are all artists of lational reputation. Of course, (ler- nan music will be most fully repre- sented, as the festival is due to German enterprise; but tlie French and Italian nasters will have no reason to eom- jjain of having been neglected. Most, f not all. of them are on the program. The great siengerfest chorus will be :nade up of Soo voices from the singing societies of (.'hicago. Lakeview, Free- jort, Hockford, and Kock Island. 111.; Milwaukee. La Crosse, Madison. "VVater- ,own, Janesville, and Sheboygan, AVis.; Dubuque, and Davenport, Iowa, and all the Minneapolis, .St. Paul, and Minne- sota societies. The soloists who have been engaged are the following: Sig- nonna Clementina IJe Vere, the great Italian soprano, who is sure to create a profound sensation: Mme. JJlanche the best of American sopranos; Miss Helen Dudley bell. the brilliant and artistic young contralto; the great Campanini; the dashing Swedish tenor. Eugene de Danckward, from the Koyal Opera, Copenhagen; the popular baritone. Del 1'iiente; and the greatest American basso, Myron "W. Whitney. Added to these great vocal features will be Gil- more's world famous band, with the novel and sensational accompaniment of anvils, real booming cannon, etc. Three evening concerts and two mati- nees will be given. All railroads will give one fare for the round trip, and it is probable that many from Albert Lea and vicinity will take advantage of the rare opportunity to attend the greatest musical festival ever held 'in the northwest.

Tlie following letter written liy Or. .J. Cim-yer, of Lake Chrystal, the best-informed veterinarian an'd one of the most faithful friends of the horse in the state. It was published in the Farm, Stock 1 Ionic, and we are in- debted to that excellent paper, through the courtesy of the Minneapolis Jour- nal, for the cuts illustrating Dr. Curry' er's ideas. His letter is herewith given: "Occasionally 1 visit the Twin Cities and am always much interested in their rapid growth and improvement; am particularly interested in their horses, those noble and indispensable adjuncts o the commercial affairs, and to the pleasure of the citizens of these great Jiut the object of this is to pro- est against the general and cruel prac- ice of over-head and over-tight check- ug, evidences of which confront me n every side; especially do J protest tgainst letting horses stand for hours tt a time on the. streets without relief 'roin the tortures of the check-rein. If lie owners or drivers of horses realized vliih. a torturing strain it is on the to be forced to maintain his unnatural position they would see o it that they had relief, at least when even but live minutes. To ealizo the effect tight checking has on lie horse, stand and look at the ceiling )f your room directly overhead for one nimitu by the watch and you will be ,'lad to hold your head and rub the of your neck for relief. Then go lowu on the street and nncheck the irst over-cheeked horse you come to, 'or the accompanying cut was made by 3ur artist before the extension pipe was attached. Every day since the gas was found e well has been visited by hundreds )f people, and on Sunday nearly 200 :eams from Albert Lea were driven >ut to the interesting scene. The force if the gas is not quite so strong as at irst. which very likely is the result of mpedimeuts at the bottom, but it lows in suflicient volume to operate a en-horsepower engine, or, if properly Jistributed, to light Broadway in Al- >ert Lea its entire length. The ilame n the evening appears as large as an imbrella at its largest, and is from six ,o ten feet long. Propositions have been discussed to pipe the gas to this city at once, but the expense of right- of-way and for pipe would be too great :o justify it until the permanency of ,he supply is ascertained, and until a arger quantity is obtained. More ex- :ensive veins are likely to be encoun- ,ered by boring deeper and by sinking 'arger wells. The characteristics of the well are dentical with those bored at Freeborn last summer. Tlie latter, however, were impeded more by accumulating water, sand and gravel, and after a few days tlie How of gas was much reduced inless the wells were pumped clear. The discovery in Kiceland is isolated, whereas the gas-producing area at Freeborn includes nearly an entire township. The existence of gas in lliceland and at other points was known before the investigations were begun at Freeborn, but the search is being made there because the indica- tions in that locality are far more ex- tensive than elsewhere in the county. ilr. Olson is having another well bored to obtain gas to heat and light his residence, and it is to be hoped that further prospecting will develop the valuable product in permanent and greatly increased quantities. This so near to Albert Lea naturally has created great interest, and it is justly considered very impor- tant. It certainly is very strong con- firmatory evidence of the existence of larger and inexhaustible quantities ot natural gas in the county; it fully justi- fies the interest that the discoveries have elicited, and makes plain tlie im- portance of pursuing the explorations until more valuable and permanent re- sults are obtained. How to Money. To save money is to make money The common way of washing clothes on a washboard is growing out of favor fast. The Eclipse Washer will do the work better, in less time, and with no wear to the clothes; the savings will in a short time buy a machine. "Used by hundreds of families in this county alone, a recommer.d of tins wondeifu machine is unnecessary, S. Keinsberg warrants them for two years. Times." This high-bred Clydesdale stallion shows a tirst-class pedigree, and is as fine as any ever brought into Freebon county. Color, dark bay; weight lie will be at the National House ban Mondays. Farmers should be sure ant see him. Terms ?10 on account of ou getting him so late in the season Other dates will be given in the STAND Ann next week. J. FOSSOM Co. At Cost! At Cost!

AS BRUTALITY MAKES THEM. ,nd you'.will see that he too tries to get is head as low as possible and for the ame relief. It is a pain- ul sight to one to walk the streets of our cities and observe the horses tanding with heads and necks drawn nto unnatural and painful positions, vhile their owners are at business, hopping, making calls, etc., entirely orgetf ul of their suffering beasts. The wrses plainly manifest their agony by timing their heads from side to side to .horten the distance from check bit to addle hook. 1 am charitable enough to believe hat if owners or drivers realized, or .re informed of the uncomfortable po- rtions of their horses, a reform would )8 instituted at once, and to aid and ncourage all lovers of this indispens- ible and valuable animal. I would uggest that they see to it that horses ire not checked so high as to make a Miinfnl strain upon their necks, and larticularly when standing give them by lengthening the check rein 'rom four to six inches. An excellent )lan is to have attached to the check ein a small, neat strap of suflicient ength for relief, which will avoid the changing of the buckle on the check ein. liy the use of such a strap horses :an stand easily and still be prevented "rom getting their heads to the ground." Uids for lmther College. The question of rebuilding the utheran College of Oecorah, Iowa, vas discussed at the Norwegian Lu- heran Synod at Fergus Falls this ind it was shown that several cities lad offered large bonuses to secure it. St. Paul offered La Crosse, SGO.OOu and Minneapolis will do still setter. On the other hand, Decorah s waking up and will raise a bonus and try to hold it. It is argued by .hem that the synod's property is worth about S150.UOO with main build.: ng standing. It will take to rebuild and the citizens at the meeting resolved to raise Stt.OOO and, if possible, The Decorah Posten sorrow; fully points to the fact that if the col- ege is removed it will be ''Decorah College'' no longer and the old alumni will be of the past, and old memories connected with the graduation of so many from its halls will die out. It says further that if the college is re- moved that synod will lose in tlie value of the property as the site which now is as good as will not be worth if the institution is not rebuilt. The city has many warm advocates, it further states, because it is a tem- perance town and students find it a haven for rest and study, far from the temptations that beset the other cities that are bidding for it. The matter ot removal or rebuilding will not be con- sidered until the annual meeting ol the synod, which takes place some tinii this summer.
