The program for tin* great Northwestern sa-ngerlest and Gilmore’s jubilee festival, to be held in Minneapolis lune Both, JI st and 22nd, promises a rare and most exquisite musical treat. Nothing similar has ever been attempted on so grand a scale in the Northwest. Nearly all the great masters of classical and modern music are represented on the program by selections from their most popular works, and the leading performers are all artists of national reputation. Of course, German music will be most fully represented, as the festival is due to German enterprise; but the French and Italian masters will have no reason to complain of having been neglected. Most, it not all. of them are on the program. I he great samgerfesfc chorus will be made up of Hub voices I rom the singing societies of Chicago, Lakeview, Freeport, Rockford, and Rock Island, 111.; Milwaukee, La Crosse, Madison, Watertown, Janesville, and Sheboygan, \Vis.: Dubuque, and Davenport, Iowa, and all the Minneapolis, St. raid, and Minnesota societies. The soloists who have been engaged are the following: Signorina Clementina De Vere, the great Italian soprano, who is sure to create a profound sensation; Mme. Blanche Stone-Barton, the best oi American sopranos; Miss Helen Dudley Campbell. tin* brilliant and artistic young contralti*; the great Campanini; the dashing Swedish tenor, Eugene de Danckward, from the Royal Opera, Copenhagen; the popular baritone, Del Puente; and the greatest American basso, Myron W. Whitney. Added to these great vocal features will be Gilmore's world famous band, with the novel and sensational accompaniment of anvils, real booming cannon, etc. Three evening concerts and two matinees 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 festiva* northwest. a1 ever held in the College Commencement.    f The following is the program fo*^’ commencement week tit Albert Lea Col leger Sunday.

Cresswell, “The for the accompanying cut was made by our artist before the extension pipe was attached. Every day since tin* gas was found the well ha** been visited by hundreds of people, and on Sunday nearly 200 teams from Albert Lea were driven out to the interesting scene. The force of the gas is not quilt* so strong as at first. which very likely is the result of impediments at the bottom, but it dows insufficient volume to operate a ten-horse power • ngine, or, ii properly distributed, to light Broadway iii Albert Lea its entire length. Tile dame in the evening appears as large as an umbrella at its largest, and is from six to ten feet long. Propositions have been discussed to pipe tin* gas to this city at once, but tin* expense of right-of-way and for pip© would be too great to justify it until the permanency of the supply is ascertained, anil until a larger quantity is obtained. More extensive veins are likely to be encountered by boring deeper and by sinking larger wells. The characteristics of the well are identical with those I ored at Freeborn last summer. The latter, however, were impeded more by accumulating water, sand and gravel, and after a few days the Mow of gas was much reduced unless the wells were pumped clear. The discovery in Riceland is isolated, whereas the gas-producing area at Freeborn includes nearly an entire township. The existence of gas in Iiiceland and at other points was known before the investigations were begun at Freeborn, but tin* search is being made there because the indications in that locality are far more extensive than elsewhere in the county. Mr. Olson is having another well bored to obtain gas to heat and light his residence, and it is to be Imped that further prospecting will develop the valuable product in permanent and greatly increased quantities. This discovery so near to Albert Lea naturally has created great interest, and it is justly considered very important. It certainly is very strong confirmatory evidence of the existence of Larger and inexhaustible quantities of natural gas in the county; it fully justifies the interest that the discoveries have elicited, and makes plain the importance of pursuing the explorations until more valuable and permanent results are obtained. bible, and how to use it. tuesday, June ll—7:45 p. iii.Elocutionary Entertainment.

It is a painful sight to one to walk the streets of your cities and observe the horses standing with heads and necks drawn int*> unnatural and painful positions, while their owners are at business, shopping, making calls, etc., entirely forgetful of their suffering beasts. The horses plainly manifest their agony by turning their heads from side to side to shorten the distance from check bit to saddle hook. I am charitable enough to believe that if owners or drivers realized, or are informed of the uncomfortable positions of their horses, a reform would Im* instituted at once, and to aid and encourage all lovers of this indispensable and valuable animal. I would suggest that they see to it that horses ar** not cheeked so high as to make a painful strain upon their necks, and particularly w hen standing give them relief by lengthening the check rein from four to six inches. An excellent plan is to have attached to the check rein a small, neat strap of sufficient length for relief, which will avoid the changing of the buckle on the check rein, lly the use of such a strap horses can stand easily and still be prevented from getting their heads to the ground. •»♦*■....... Bill* for Luther College. The question of rebuilding the Lutheran College of Decorah, Iowa, was discussed at the Norwegian Lutheran Synod at Fergus Falls this week and it was shown that several cities had offered large bonuses to secure it. St. Paul offered 850,ODO, La Crosse, 860,000 and Minneapolis will do still better. On the other hand, Decorah is waking up and will raise a bonus and try to hold it. It is argued by them that the synod’s property is worth about 8150,000 with main building standing. It will take 850,000 to rebuild and the citizens at the meeting resolved to raise 86,000 and, if possible, 810,000. The Decorah Poston sorrow^ fully points to the fact that if the college is removed it will lie “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 removed that synod will lose in the value of the property as the site which now is as good as 8100?000 will not be worth sio,dim if the institution is not rebuilt. The city has many warm advocates, it further states, because it is a temperance town and students flail it a haven for rest and study, far from the temptations that beset the other cities that are bidding for it. The matter of removal or rebuilding will not be considered until the annual meeting of the synod, which takes place some time this summer. — - — — »■# •• Notice—Horseshoeing.
