I The council held a regular meeting Monday evening, .sept. 9th. All mem I bers present except Mr. Kimtvold. I Minutes of two preceding meeting; were read and approved. I Alderman Wiegaud moved that tin I '-ity retain the six arc lights on tin streets now running, at the rate o SV.50 each per month, provided the; I arc kept burning until 12 o'clock a night, during the present fiscal year j Motion was carried, Aldermen Kicli ards, Morin and voting aye and Alderman Lowe voting no. Alderman Morin of the water works committee reported that he had beei to St. raul, and conferred with Mr JJement, and I'et-t i; Co., who were willing to go ahead immediately, pro- vided they were satisfied that sullicien quantities of artesian well water coulc be obtained. Alderman Wiegand reported tha' they had had the lire engine repairec and" tested, and that it worked all righi until they attached it to the well, when it failed to work owing, apparently, to the lack of air pressure in the well The matter was linally left with the committee. A petition fora sidewalk on Railroad street, in Morin's addition, and as far south as practicable, signed by 1'. Maginnis, M. Cole, X. L. Lund.'.Jno. AVood, Seitncr and M. Ahern was presented and referred to the al- dermen of the second ward. Keport of proceedings of the board of public works was read. It showed that the board recommended that the expense for street sprinkling on con- tract of McGoveni tt Anderson, be borne by the city. The report was ac- cepted, Aldermen Lowe, Morin, Rich- ards, IViegand and Mr. President vot- ing "aye" and Mr. Mocum The street commissioner was in- structed to report all defective side- walks to the next meeting of the coun- cil. It was understood that the proposed contractors for water works would be here in a day or two to submit the nec- essary ordinance, and that a special meeting would be called for the purpose. The following bills were allowed: J Marlett, street work.....................5 3.75 X L Carpenter, street 1.50 H Holbrook, with team.................... 27.oo J Johnson, with team..................... 30 00 Nelson, lumber 23.23 C L C'oleman, lumber.....................7u :A McGovern Anderson, street sprinkling forjulv................................. 83.00 r'arnswortb SEdwanK street lights, band stand and council room.................. 43.00 cnas Belcher, lumber...................... 25.07 S F Chamberlain, special police............ 4.00 W C Mitchell, special police............... 2.00 P C Hanford Oil Co. fur oil................ 5 37 F A Blaekmer, visits iu Morton boy....... 24.00 liill of Sun Vapor Streetlight Co., was referred to Alderman Knatvold.

Holly Case-Farm- ers are yet busy and wheat is com- ing into market slowly in Alden. It is quite foul; cockle was a good crop this year. Sev- eral of our people will attend the fairs at the Twin City this week. Dr. round-trip fare to Chattanooga is only S13 and 1 shall go to Xorth Carolina that way. Will reference to scan- dals has stirred up several folks. They don't know which of them is hit. An Insurance "Water works ought to reduce the rate of insurance in Albert Lea twenty-five per cent. Alderman works will enhance the value of real property in this city the full amount of their cost the first year. Secretary Dr. Abbott is confident that tlie main college build- ing will not accommodate all the new students; that the new building will have to be furnished, and I hope he is correct. Thos. examined the new- style hot water heaters for residences in La Crosse, and was assured that they are the best and cheapest in use. A large store there was heated last winter with only two tons of coal and a little wood. I "think I shall try the system. M. H. have five wells, and scarcely any water. O'Connor's lake is dry for the first time known. Far- mers generally cannot afford to drill deep wells and put up wind mills; they cost too much, and if we have HO rain soon, I don't know what we will do for water. AV. C. There are are a few skin-flints in this town who won't give a cent for anything. They never sub- scribe for a Fourth, for a county fair or for any public benefit, and if the charge for getting into heaven is 50 cents, they will never give it; they will prefer to be left out. E. K. am getting more money this year on machine collections than for several years before, but I tell you there will be a good deal of suffering in some parts of Dakota where I have been. In some sections tho crops are an entire failure and peo- ple have nothing to live on nor money to buy with. Wyman hardly expect to occupy Linden Terrace before next year, when my parents, who reside at Greene. Iowa, will probably come and live with me. My father is a clergy- man and on account of his advanced years will be unable to continue much longer in the service. Signs of the Quickening. Minneapolis Tribune1. The heavy crops, the admission of the new states, the prospective opening of the Sioux reservation, and a dozen other straws all point to a marked quickening of Northwestern prosper- ity. When He Is One, Of Course. Jloorliead News. When will certain big men of Min- nesota, who have rejected Mr. Windom as a Minnesotian, be willing to claim him as a citizen of the North Star state? IT VIBRATES IX THE MEMORY. The Kntrrtainiiient of the Anmol Concert Treat o .Uugic'aHelodic.s-PerHonalitie.sant Unuel of Hare Ar tints anel UiverK ot Joy. The Aaiuold Concert Company, afte only very brief advertising, gave at entertain m tut at the opera house las Wednesday evening to an audienc that was disappointing as to numbers but which included many excellen critics and lovers of good music. The treat given was a surprise, and provec to be a succession of delights from be ginning to end. Xo program of music ever before given in Albert Lea has, excelled it in merit or artistic rendi tion, and it was a feast of melodj which is rarely heard even on the metropolitan boards. Prof. Aamold with his violin takes you into the entrancing delights of dreamland; into the heaven of harmony and sweei sounds. Next to Ole Uull, he was pronounced die most talented and skillful violinist who has appeared in public in this country, and we believe the verdict is not an exaggeration. lie is certainly a marvelously line player and deserves the high reputation he has earned. Of the soprano, Miss Ellen Beach Yaw, we cannot withhold much less encomium and do her justice. She is a lovely, modest and winning young lady, and her voice is attuned to the nightingale's. Her notes are not as strong as those of some of the best singers but they are asdeliciouslypure, sweet and natural as the voices of the rippling mountain stream. She lias had rare cultivation as well, and the frequent encores she received attested the appreciation of the au- dience. It was a misfortune that Mr. Jung, the tenor, was suffering from a severe cold and was unable to sing, aut his rendition of the piano selections proved him to be an artist of superior talent and culture. A very pleasing and acceptable variety was'given the entertainment by Miss Mira Beals, who is certainly an elocutionist of wonderful originality, naturalness and -raining. In their way her "Irish School Master" and several selections given in response to enthusiastic en- cores, were as artistic and enjoyable as were Miss Yaw's delicious "Swiss Echo or her glorious "Aria from Miss Beals won the hearty Jlandits of her audience and will long )e remembered for the good voice, grace, fine acting and rich humor which she displayed. The company is composed of very nteresting and model ladies and gen- tlemen. Mr. Victor Thrane, the man- iger is a son of Marcus Thrane, the celebrated Norwegian revolutionist and religious agitator. The latter led an insurrection in Norway which re- ulted in his being imprisoned seven years. He came to America after- wards and conducted a free-though >aper in Chicago for several years, and s now living in Eau Claire, Wis. He las been a man of remarkable ability, nfluence and record, and his son in- lerits much of his talent, prepossess- ng personality and executive ability, liss Yaw whose charming, child-like ace and graceful figure won the-hearts f all who met her, is er.ly nineteen years of age. She received her musical ducation in New Y'ork City and is ecognized as one of the most promis- ng singers now before the public, ler home at present is in Minneapolis, tfibs Beals, who is also very attractive n form and feature received her train- ng in Boston. She is in the lower years; is as bright mentally dsshe is winning in face and expres- ion, and has a very promising future. Jrof. Aamold, as he informed us, is married to his violin, and it is a good natch. The instrument is a genuine Jremona, and with the bow, cost .t is a sensitive, soulful and almost peaking thing; he loves it and it Iways responds to the eloquent be- uests of its master. Mr. Jung was ducated in the best musical conserva- ories of Berlin, Germany, and has only seen in America six months. Both he nd Prof. Aamold are very sociable nd pleasant to meet. Mr. Jung is to je married soon, but the others of the ompany are single, and we venture to ay for the benefit of their admiring riends in Albert Lea, are fancy free, Aamold. Mr. Jung, and Miss Seals, we believe, now reside in St. "aul. People who failed to hear the corn- any when here really do not know ow rare a treat they missed, and we re glad to be able to imforni them hat they may yet be able to repair heir mistake, for the company made partial promise to return within a ew month's and give another enter- ainment with a program, if possible, ven more attractive than before. Cholera in Michigan. Dr. F. D. Larke of Rogers City, Mich- gan, says the epidemic of last year in Jrcsque Isle county, in which so many ersons lost their lives, was choleric ysentery instead of cholera as first eported. He used Chamberlain's Jholera and Diarrhcca Remedy and ays it succeeded where all other rem- dies failed. Not a single case was ost in which it was used. This remedy s the nwst reliable and most success- ul medicine known for colic, cholera raorbus, dysentery, diarrlicwi and loody llux. 25 and 50 cent bottles for ale by Parker Briggs. The Fall Season.
