WEUM & BERG.
Chula With I itlzenii.
Wedge.— ov. Merriam didn't pardon the Younger brothers after all, and Hob probably will recover now from his consumption. Mrs. Theodore Tyrer once asked me to I certify that her husband had the consumption to aid lier in getting him pardoned out of .Stillwater. I refused I to do it of course, I hadn’t even seen j him for some time.
I Richard Quinn, Geneva,—Corn is j silking out, and it must be small unless there is more rain.
J. I*. Klemme.-—The standard t stated the exact facts last week about j th** butter market. It is everrwhen overstocked. Only the very choicest j grades are wanted. Most that is made J now tastes “summery." and goes beg-j ging. I expect to see prices go still ! lower.
F. W. Barlow. I think the new post other room an improvement over the old one, hut I don t think that Albert Lea ought to go back to poorer boxes.
T. J. Wanek. The Leans should organize a foot hall club; they are such all-fired good kickers.
(’has. Norton, Pickerel Lake.—I am going to try th** 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. T he only trouble I fear after threshing it will ‘be heating, but that can be prevented by occasionally shot •Ting it.
•I. I,. JI. Howe, Glenville.—T here are great numbers of chinch hugs in fields, hut the grain is too forward for them.
If the harvest had com** tin* usual ti mi two weeks later til*- hugs would probably have mined the small grain.
K Strauss.—Rev. Mr. Ylvisaker is the finest German scholar in the coun ty. Ile reads, writes and speaks the anguage like an educated German native.
A Lady. I would like to help get up an entertainment for the benefit of Rrundin’s band. They deserve it, and citizens ought to show their appreciation of the fine Friday night concerts they are giving in the park.
A I irst \\ arder.—I wish the council would require all cottonwoods to bi* cut down. They already litter the ground with dead leaves, and the trees ar** a nuisance nearly all summer.
TI. A. Morin. -I would like to see a well bored for gas or oil here at Albert Lea. Standing water from the artesian wells show a deposit of oil, and I believe it would pay to make investigations.
Prof. schmitz.—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. Scott—We have got the best wheat in Freeborn, we have had for 12 years, and with rain in the next week or ten days com will be just as good.
('. M. Hewitt.- I am not inspecting as many animals nowadays as before the hot weather came. Butchers say that farmers are not buying as mile., 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 Brundin. A license fee of ISI CX is too high for a circus if we expect to ever get one to come here. Only a fee sufficient to cover th*- extra expense to the city should be charged,
ll. M. rJ odd.—If th** base ball park is well managed it will prove a profit able investment to stockholders. They are quite sure to get their money back and more too, but those who only subscribed 85 should not be entitled to the same priviliges as to admission that 810 subscribers are.
('. W. Levens.—The state fair managers are trying to humbug people iii the matter of their premium offers.
After holding out the bait of tempting premiums, they obscurely state that all premiums above 850 will be scaled down 20 per cent, lf it was not for this I would enter five horses at the Fair, but shall now enter none.

The Prohibition State Convention.
The Minnesota State Prohibition convention has just dosed one of the most spirited and successful conventions iii Harmonia Hall in Minneapolis they have ever held iii this state. They have laid out their work for another year iii 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 hundred, sending cordial greetings.
All friends of God and 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.
Shall We Have a County Fair?
To th» People of Fr> < born County:
It is now more than ten years since we have had a county fair. I think we ought to wake nj) 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 ourselves how we stand. I believe we ought to have a county fair, and I invite the farmers from all over the county 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. rn., and we will talk the matter over. Respectfully,
J. G. Godley, President Freeborn Co. Agricultural Society.

Interesting Ordination Service* iii Bancroft.
i Despite the busy harvesting season,
“large concours** oi people assembled F riday the 26th at the Bancroft church to witness the ceremonies of the ordination to the ministry, of Kllend J.
Ovri of Bath, and Daniel Svendsen of >\ isconsin. The seating capacity of Die church was quite well filled when at 11.30 a rn. the Bishop with the candidates and assisting clergymen tiled into the vestry.
Rev. Ylvisaker offered prayer and I after the singing of a hymn, Rev. Smeby occupied the pulpit and spoke briefly. ' dwelling ob toe importance of a minister's calling, showing in his own able and clear manner the bright and dark sides of a Lord’s shepherd. According , ii
to custom he read short biographical I SpVP r*l I Ti im ut in sketches of the candidates written bv I 1 OU line

id lend J. Ovid, was bom Bt N’orwnv J June 25th, I860. Emigrated with his parents to America in 1951 and settled in the town of Bath this county where he has since resided. In 1880 he entered Luther College, Decorah, Iowa, from which he graduated Jan. 17, 1886. Has since studied theology at the Synod*!
Seminary at Madison and Minneapolis graduating in June 1885), Has accepted a call from congregations in otter I ail county, Minn.
Daniel S vend son was bom in Norway Aug. I, 1867, and attended there schools of high grade. In 1882 emigrated to America and completed his education at Luther College. Mnce 1887 studied theology at Madison, Wig.* and Minneapolis graduating in June-18851. Has accepted call from congregations 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 tin* 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 tin* gospel.
Mr.Ovri is as will be seen aFreeboni 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 h«as a large circle of friends and acquaintances who know him only to love and respect him, and all join in congratulating him on his 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 25>th inst.
Mr. Svendson is not known here but appeared to be a bright young man thoroughly in earnest, aud will no doubt prove an efficient worker in the Lord’s vineyard.
NOTES OK THE DAY.
Rev. Strand, Northwood, la.. Rev Skattebol, Blue Earth City, Rev Jensen, Rev. Smeby, and Rev. Ylvisaker assisted Bishop Torgerson in the exercises.
.Miss Marie Kailsen, the popular music instructor at the Lutheran High School, presided at the organ.
E.G. Johnson, one of the pillars of the Bath congregation, was an interested spectator.
Hon. M. Ilalvorsen was busy taking notes.
Our friend Ilans Hanson oi Bancroft was present and seemed much interested.
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-lilled baskets, they spread a sumptuous repast of which all bounti-i ally 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 of—those who possessed less cheek and ability to help themselves. Thanks!
