The Council oiiNidiTH :i Contract-- Mouic ChuiigeH to jta Made When (In Hai-cain Will Be Fluau Hal City Has Comfortable Bank Hiden-alkH Munt BUH! The council held a regular meeting Monday evening, all Jia-mbers being present. The minutes oi the last meet- ing were read and approved. The street committee was instructed to re pair the road on the hil! by the ceme- tery. The street committee reportet that a gravel walk had been providec on Railroad .Street, of the S. M track, and that the Pickf-rel Lake roac had been repaired. The clerk was in- structed to give notice through the papers to people to trim their trees along the sidewalks. The lighting committee reported that the contractors agreed to furnish the balance of the lamps tliis week. The rt-rnoval of the electric light from East Clark street was referred to the street committee. Wm. Fenholt asked permission for the popcorn man fo put his stand on William street at the southeast corner of Gage. Holland Hayden's store, it was decided that the city has no right to grant such a privilege, but it was understood that the council would not object if property owners do not object. The committee on waf-r works com- posed of Messrs. Morin, Knatvold and Lowe reported Mr. Morin, that he had been in St. 1'aul and seen the contractors, who sent by him an ordinance embodying a contract for a system of water works. It was, on motion unanimously received and read. The grantees named were E. W. Peet and ij. C. Bement. 'Jhe proposed ordinance was fully considered by sec- tions and on motion was referred back to the committee and city attorney to make needed amendments, and report to an adjourned meeting of the council to be held Wednesday night, when Mr. Bernent was to be present. The street commissioner reported de- fective sidewalks as follows: In front of block 17 on Clark street in front of J. F. Wohlhuterand Jno. Gislesson; on block 9 on Broadway, front of Betcher's lumber yard and the rink; on block 2 Pearl street, Morin's addition, front of Eolfson's house, on block 2 Hall's Addition front ot Coyne's lot and D. E. Dwyer's lot on Broadway; block 11 on Clark street in front of T. J. Sheehan's and Jemima Sampson's residences, in front of the Methodist church, College street. The report was adopted and the street commissioner was ordered to build new sidewalks ac- cording to the ordinances. A. new sidewalk in front of Dr. Black- mer's building, occupied by Weum Berg, was ordered built in the same way. The clerk read a statement of re- ceipts and expenditures for the fiscal as follows: RECEIPTS SiyCE AWilL 1ST. Licenses..............................s Fool tables.............................

Larke of Rogers City, Micji- gan, says the epidemic of last year in Jresque Isle county, in which so many >ersons lost their lives, was choleric dysentery instead of cholera as first reported. He used Chamberlain's 'Jholera and Diarrhtwi Remedy and says it succeeded where all other rem- :dies failed. Not a single case was ost in which it was used. This remedy s the most reliable and most suceess- ul medicine known for colic, cholera norbus, dysentery, diarrhoea arid bloody flux. 25 and 50 cent bottles for sale by Parker Briggs. Stordock Heard From. Barnesville Review. H. G. Stordock is quietly settled at Kothsay and has opened one of the ele- vators there that has been closed dur- ng the past season. Mr. Stordock says he is out of politics for all time to come, but may take a hand in the ;ame next fall just for the fun of the -hing. There is, undoubtedly, heaps f amusements in politics, always pro- viding your side wins. A Chronic Office-Holder Eternally Wants "Justice." Elk River Star. "Justice to is the cry going ip from some parts. It would seem to ,he casual observer that McGill was .he last man to be suffering from considering that he has continually been in ollice for the last decade or more. A Good Curiosity. Northfleld News. Farmers' alliances are being organ- zed throughout the state, and Mr. Al- ison says they are for the farmer and not for political purposes. Such an al- 'iance would be a great benefit to the 'armer as well as a curiosity to other people. A Hotloo on Barbers. Hokah Chief. Ilokah wants a barber, one who desires to make a brief stay on earth. All the barbers Ilokah ever had died or committed suicide but one, and he s in the penitentiary. An equal op- portunity is seldom offered to a knight of the razah. For One Bnshcl Hew Wheat We give 40 pounds straight flour, war- ranted, ten pounds of bran and three pounds of shorts. A. LEA MILL AND ELEVATOR Co. HE 1'ltKFEKKEl) TO KIBE. A Train Horse from Xoble'M Stalile. and HukCM Wood Hi.s Escape. Last Friday evening about !l o'clock some reprobate, probably a tramp, en- tered the stable of Elwood Noble 01 the farm of George Chamberlain in Manchester, which he is occupying stole a four-year-old mare owned b> Mr. Xoble and easily made his escape He took a bridle and halter but over- looked a good saddle. The mare is a bright bay, black mane and tail, slim built, high spirited and weighs about pounds. O. J. Taylor heard a man on horseback pass his place about 10 o'clock the same night, and he was doubtless the thief making his way to Iowa, the favorite resort of horse- thieves. Sheriff Mitchell being informed, promptly sent notices in every direc- tion offering a reward of 825 "for Mr Xoble and on behalf of the state and it is possible that this will be suf- ficient to secure his apprehension and the recovery of the animal. Experience has shown that there is little use in trying to otherwise track a horse-thief. Big Flax Yields. As the raising of flax is likely to become an extensive branch of farm- ing in this county we quote reports of flax yields from the Mankato Keview and Xew Kichland Star as follows, the first given being from the Star and the others from the Keview: H. J. Hanson sowed two bushels of flax on three acres of ground and threshed CO bushels. At the present price of Ilax this would be worth per acre. Geo. A. Bundy of Lincoln, Blue Earth county, on 90 acres of new- breaking, raised bushels of flax, which realized for him over This is an average of per acre, or enough to pay for the land the first year. This season, as a general thing it was claimed that new breaking flax was not as good as flax sown upon old ground. Mr. Blank, of Xicollet county, raised J6 bushels of flax from three acres of his best land. Mr. Blank had three acres in prime condition, which he to flax, and he cultivated it jarefully and well, and this extraordi- lary yield of 32 bushels to the acre is :he result. At the same rate as Mr. [Sundy, Mr. Blank's yield would bring him 836.50 per acre. We Must Have Room. While in Chicago we bought the argest stock of notions and Holiday ;oods ever brought to Albert Lea, and :o make room for them, will sell all our furniture and household goods AT COST during this month. Beds, springs, mattresses, dresser's stands, tables, stoves, etc., at prices that will astonish the natives.' On October 1st we will give away a nice rocking chair.

DAY. t Would Be a Good Boom for Speaker Graves and His Private Secretary. Duluth News. Speaking of conventions, why shouldn't the next state convention be held at Duluth. It vould relieve that body from the un- holy influence of the Twins, and the cool lake breeze could not fail to have ;alutary influence upon its deliber- ations. It would do the delegates ;ood, too, to see a real live city. Trim Up the Trees. Owing to the dense foliage upon many of the trees, which hangs over .he sidewalk in various portions of the city, thereby interfering with travel ind the proper diffusion of light, the Jommon Council hereby request all iroperty owners who have any trees whose foliage interferes as above stated trim their trees up, at least ten (10) eet from the ground, and thus add to .he general good appearance of the :ity. F. A. JOHNSON, Dated Sept. City Clerk. Sound Advice of An Old Journalist. Major Newson In Midway News. Get your pay in advance. It is better for you and better for the ubscribers. What little profit is nade out of a newspaper is generally ost in the amounts which should come n on subscriptions.
