I think the newpost- oilice room an improvement over the old one. but I don't think that Albert Lea ought to go back to poorer boxes. T. .J. The Leans should or- ganize a foot ball club; they are such all-lired good kickers. ('has. Xorton, Pickerel I am going to try the plan adopted in Iowa of cutting my corn with a self-binder. I believe I can do it. if I succeed, I shall then shell it with a threshing machine. The only trouble I fear after threshing it will be ln-ating, but that can be prevented by occasionally shov- eling it. J. L. li. Howe, There are great numbers of chinch bugs in fields but the grain is too forward for them If the harvest had come the usual time weeks the bugs would probably have ruined the small grain. S. Rev. II r. Ylvisaker is the finest German scholar in the coun- ty. He reads, writes and speaks the language like an educated German native. A I would like to help get up an entertainment for the benefit of Urundin's band. They deserve it and citizens ought to show their apprecia- tion of the fine Friday night concerts they are giving in the park. A First wish the council would require all cottonwoods to be cut down. They already litter the ground with dead leaves, and the trees are a nuisance nearly all summer. A. I would like to see a well bored for gas or oil here at Albert Lea. Standing water from tlie artesian wells show a deposit of oil, and I be- lieve it would pay to make investiga- tions. 6 Prof. "We .have got a very good lot of teachers for the coming term. One or two changes may have to be made, but on the whole" I am quite well satisfied. L. T. We have got the best wheat in Freeborn, we have had for 12 years, and with rain in the next week or ten days corn will be just as good. C. if. Hewitt. I am not inspecting as many animals nowadays as before the hot weather came. Butchers say that fanners are not buying as much beef as in former years, showing that money is scarce. They also say that owing to the drying up of the pastures good fat cattle are not plentiful. Axel A license fee of 3100 is too high for a circus if we expect to ever get one to come here. Only a fee sufficient to cover the extra expense to the city should be charged. R. M. Todd.-If the base ball park is well managed it will prove a profit- Interesting Ordination Services in Bancroft. Despite the busy harvesting season a large concourse of people assembled i riday the 20th at the Bancroft church to witness the ceremonies of the ordi- nation to the ministry, of Ellend J Oyn of 13ath, and Daniel Svendsen of Wisconsin. The seating capacity of the church was quite well filled when at 11.30 a m. the Bishop with the can- didates and assisting clergymen filed into the vestry. Kev. Ylvisaker offered prayer and after the singing of a hymn, Kev Smeby occupied the pulpit and spoke brieily dwelling on the importance of a min- ister's calling, showing m his own able and clear manner the bright and dark sides of a Lord's shepherd. According to custom he read short biographical sketches of the candidates written bv themselves. Ellend J. Ovri, was born in Xorway Jne 25th, I860. Emigrated with his parents to America in 1804 and settled m the town of Bath this county where he has since resided. In 1880 he entered Luther College, Decorah, Iowa, from which he graduated Jan. Has since studied theology at the Synod's Seminary at Madison and Minneapolis graduating in June 1889. Has accept- ed a call from congregations in Otter Tail county, Minn. Daniel Sveudson was born in way Aug. and attended there schools of high grade. In 1882 emi- grated to America and completed his education at Luther College Since 1887 studied theology at Madison, Wis and Minneapolis graduating in June. 1889. Has accepted call from gations in Blue Earth county Minn Bishop Torgerson then delivered the ordination sermon outlining the duties of a minister of the gospel. Showed them wherein they would be likely to fail.suggested the remedies.and advised as to the best methods of leading mankind to salvation according to the word of God. Then followed the invocation of the divine spirit and blessing, and then Messrs. Ovri and Svendson were duly declared Reverend ministers of the gospel. Mr. Ovri is as will be seen a Freeborn county boy. Having only limited means he has by dint of hard work a steady purpose and determined energy reached the goal to which he aspired. He has a large circle of friends and acquaintances who know him only to love and respect him, and That is Our Style. v.-c can't help Om- it, and don't want to.

C. W. state fair man- agers are trying to humbug people in the matter of their premium offers After holding out the bait of tempting premiums, they obscurely state that all premiums above will be scaled down 20 per cent. If it was not for this I would enter five horses at the Fair, but shall now enter none. The Prohibition State Convention. Editor Standard: The Minnesota state Prohibition convention has just closed one of the most spirited and successful conven- tions in Hannonia Hall in Minneapolis they have ever held in this state. They have laid out their work for another year in a manner that promises rapid advancement Reverses only serve as did the Bull Run rout in the war. to stimulate to more earnest work and wiser methods to promote God's honor, the protection of home, the support of right and the safety of our nation. A telegram was received from a like convention in Ohio held the same days with a delegation of over seven hun- dred, sending cordial greetings. All friends of God a'nd humanity are earnestly solicited to fall into our ranks and march with us to a certain victory and salvation to our nation from all the black and hideous train of evils that are caused by the liquor traffic. S. GOIOIAN. Shall We Have n County Fair 1 To the People of Fnrlurn County: It is now more than ten years since we have had a county fair. I think we ought to wake up and do something this fall. Our crops are good this sea- son, and the stock throughout the county has been improving in quality from year to year; we hardly know our- selves how we stand. I believe we ought to have a connty fair, and 1 in- vite the farmers from all over the coun- ty as well as the citizens of Albert Lea to meet with me at the council chamber in Albert Lea on Saturday August 3rd, at 2 o'clock p. m., and we will talk the matter over. Respectfully, ,1. (i. (lODLKY, President Preeboni Co. Agricultural .Society. Proposals for Kuilding. Sealed bids for building an addition to the County poor house will be re- ceived at the auditor's office, Albert Lea, Minn., until Augusts, 1889, inclu- sive. Plans and specifications can be seen at the court house. The committee reserves tlie right to reject any and all bids. By Order of COMMITTEE. Albert Lea, July 3012 all join in congratulating Mm on bis success and wish him many years in which to complete the noble work to which he has dedicated himself and so nobly commenced. He left for his field of labor Monday the 29th inst. Mr. Svendson is not known here but appeared to be a bright young man thoroughly in earnest, and will no doubt prove an efficient worker in the Lord's vineyard. NOTES OF THE DAY. Rev. .Strand, Xorthwood, la Rev Skattebol, Blue Earth City, Rev Jen- sen, Kev. Smeby, and Rev. Ylvisaker assisted Bishop Torgerson in the exercises. Miss Marie Railsen, the popular music instructor at the Lutheran Ilio-h School, presided at the organ. E. C. Johnson, one of the pillars of the Bath congregation, was an interest- ed spectator. Hon. M. Halvorsen was busy takino- notes. Our friend Hans Hanson of Bancroft was present and seemed much inter- ested. A large delegation of ladies and gentlemen from the city was present and only on account of their numbers are we unable to give their names. After the exercises at the church the greater portion of the assemblage repaired to the parsonage, and the ladies having thoughtfully brought well-filled baskets, they spread a sumptuous repast of which all bounti- fully partook. The representative of the STANDARD was pleasantly corralled and induced to participate in stowing away some of the dainty viands much to the distress who possessed less cheek and ability to help them- selves. Thanks! The Bishop's address was an eloquent, concise and in all respects a very bril- liant effort. The Bishop, the candidates, and the clergymen assisting, all wore white robes. It was a beautiful day and the ladies present far outnumbered the gentle- men. Theo. Opsahl, X. X. Boe and Ed. Ingebrigtson former schoolmates of the candidates at college were present and considered the white robes yearn- ingly. Rev. Mr. Ovri has received a call from Kingmaker, Otter Tail county and congregations adjoining that place and started Monday to go there to lo- cate. stock of Lindauer Bros. Co., who recently failed, and thus iwe can y Knock Prices! -Vll to pieces, and we are go- ing to do it. Tons of Clothing! Tons of Clothing! Tons of Clothing!

The 31st annual state fair of the Minnesota Agricultural Society opens at Hamline September Gth and con- tinues through the 14th. The list of attractions being secured by President Uushnell and Secratary Denny far out- rank those of previous years, and make it doubly necessary for the farmers mechanics and artezans of the whole state to have an interest in it. The management has particularly develop- ed the idea that the fair is for the en- tire state and not one section of it. The premium list is arranged to out the products of the humblest tille'r of the soil as well as those of the great manufacturer and merchant. It will repay the entire community to send to II. K. Denny, Hardline, Minn., for a premium list which will be mailed free iit once. Bear in mind that Minneso- ta's state fair is the largest institution of its kind in the United States and that its programme for 18811 is half again as large as in 1888. The list of attractions will appear in our colemns next week but we can already announce the National Guaid drill; the Montana cowboys exhibition, and the grandest electrical and pyhrotechnical illumina- tion of St. Paul ever witnessed. The state fair this year with active workers already in the field will eclipse all previous efforts. For information address II. B. Denny, Secretary, Ham- line, Minn.
