After Due Consideration the Mattel- Is Committee That Mill Weilse's Gen- erous Offer or Grounds Freeborn to the Front. The meeting called to consider the advisability of holding a county fair this year was called to order in the room" of the lire company in the city building last Saturday by Jno. G. Godley, president. X. liuble was chosen temporary secretary. ilr. Godley said the meeting was to consid- er about holding a fair, and he would like the views of those present, of which there were about thirty. Isaac Botsford said if we had a different man for president we would expect him to call on Mr. G.odley for his views. Mr. seems to me the people of the county should have gumption enough to show what they have got, and I believe this year, if they have a chance, they will do it. Mr. few have said we have not begun soon enough, but I think there is time enough to get up as good a fair as we could if we had fifty days. II. have somewhat queer notions about the fair business; Heretofore three-fourths of the money has been used to pay expenses, and to crop. Chats With Citizens.

My Tin Shop is TO BEAT! pe provide horse races, balloons, greased poles and the like. I don't see the use of such exhibitions. A fair might be held open and free to all, and thus have as little expense as possible. If I was a farmer 1 would run it as an agri- cultural institution. Fairs, as gener- ally run, are to a great extent humbugs. C. X. liuble inquired as to the suc- cess of Mower county fairs. Several stated that they were very successful and creditable. Hon. M. believe Free- born county can do better than Mower county, but we cannot get along without some expense. The state will help us 8200 next year if we have a successful fair this, and the expense now need not be large. The people of the city should be thoroughly interest- ed, because what helps the farmers is a benefit to business men. and other city interests. To educate' the farmers by comparison of stock and other farm products will result in good to all. Mr. last fair we held paid 75 per cent, of premiums; a big crowd attended, and I don't see why we cannot do a great deal better now. S. P. have talked with the people in our town and they do not want most of the money to go for horse races. Dr. Wedge reminded him that he probably had in mind the North- wood fair, and several stated that at fairs held in this couuty no premiums had been paid for horse races, and Mr. Godley said that only deserving car- riage and saddle horses had been paid premiums, and that would probably be the rule if a fair is held this year. Mr. is a condition of the state as to money appropriated, that none of it shall be used for horse races. C. X. Euble, Mr. Godley, Dr. Wedge and others, contended that it was nec- essary to incur expense for fences, for a building, floral hall and exhibits, for sheds and other conveniences, and that in order to raise the funds attract- ions must be provided to draw a crowd. A motion was thereupon made and unanimously carried that a county fair be held, and the chair was authorized to appoint a committee to act with the officers of the association, who yet hold over, to attend to perfecting a legal organization, to solicit and provide funds, to secure grounds and to make other necessary arrangements and re- port at the same place next Saturday, August 10th, at 2 p. m. Dr. Wedge said there would be no trouble in paying expenses; the first thing would be to provide the neces- sary buildings. Mr. Botsford thought it would be easy to raise money for buildings, floral hall if we could get the use of Dr. Wedge's grounds west of the city. Dr. Wedge thereupon stated that the society could have the use of his grounds free of charge as long as he lives, and for five years at least, and he would give a co-itract permitting the society to remove all buildings, fences and other structures. Other locations were discussed, but the prevailing sentiment was that Dr. Wedge's grounds were the most avail- able.

Others seemed to be of the same opinion. Isaac Botsford, L. J. Thomas and A. Wiegand were appointed a committee to act with the officers for the purpose stated above. Dr. Wedge and others stated that after plans are perfected, the founda- tions laid, a secretary should be chosen who would devote his entire time to the business, and for which he should be paid; that this would be necessary to insure success. Remarks were made by S. lleinsberg, V. Gulbrandson, Chas. Levens, II. G. Day. and others, during the discussion. in "harmony with the views expressed by the others. The sentiment was de- cided and enthusiastic in favor of a fair, and every one present indicated a purpose to assist in making it a rousing success, and snrli an exhibition as would be of interest, and a benefit and pleasure to all the people of the county. After the adjournment of the meet- ing, II. D. Brown, who had been treas- urer of the old organization for ten years, reported that he had 885 on hand belonging to the society. So there is a pretty good "nest egg" to start with. Freeborn county will hold a fair in 1889; it will be a grand, good one, and everybody and their relations will want to "take it in."

II. Eaton, Twin intend in October to start for the Pacific coast, probably to Washington territory, to spend the winter for my health. We can hardly expect every year as fine a winter here as the last. Kev. Dr. Abbotts-I have visited sev- eral of the leading cities in the state east of here in the interest of the Col- lege and find prospects excellent for an increased attendance next term. For- mer students will return and many new ones. Adam fair grounds ought, if possible, to be bought this year. If this is not done it will be very doubtful about getting them. The city is growing and lands will in a few years become occupied or so high- priced that they cannot be bought. C. K. increase a cow's yield of milk for want of good pastur- age, which is not now to be had, give her plenty of good hay and water, and two quarts of middlings feed morning and night, dampened only so she will not waste it, into which put a table- spoonful of salt. Jno. G. gentleman from Minneapolis visited my farm last week and wanted to trade me real estate in that city for it. I declined, because I do not consider city property as safe an investment or any more profitable in the long run. A good farm home is good enough for me. M. Rev. Mr. Baldwin wrote the letter in the last STANDARD about Sunday observance he does not represent my religious sentiments. It was Presbyteriamsm not Universalism; it was more, it was Puritanism, and that is not my doctrine by a long shot and I won't support it. S. P. Gilt EdgeCream- ery at Gordonsville is making about 700 pounds of butter a day, and it brings in market one-half cent more a pound than the best Elgin creamery butter. The business has been fairly successful, and now that an improved cream test is added we expect it will do still better. Jno. F. nails have almost entirely gone out of the market. There are one-third more wire nails to the pound and they are just as good as the old-fashioned kind. The manu- facturers of cut nails have lately held a meeting to consider about making cut nails smaller and lighter so as to hold their trade. D. X. Northwest has not before experienced such a drouth since during the war. At that time I made a steamboat trip up the Mississippi river from La Crosse to St. Paul, and owing to the low stage of water, had to change to lighter draft boats three times. I think counties around us have had considerably more rain than Freeborn.' D. W. are so many in the fuel business in Albert Lea, and so much striving for trade that profits are very close. At the prices for which we are now taking orders for hard coal there is only a margin of 75 cents a ton which mnst pay all shrinkage and cost of handling, and yet a customer the other day complained because we would not sell for less. We cannot do business entirely for fun. A do you get all your items Mr. Editor Do people come and give them to you? Xo, you say, they do not. and you have to get them all yourself!

The Pioneer Press of last Friday said that lion. F. W. Iloyt of Red Wing president of the Duluth, Red Wing Southern, was in that city on his re- turn from Duluth. He said: "I have been in Duluth, Ashland and Wash- burn looking up terminal facilities for our road. The lirst idea was to go to Duluth, but we may decide to go to Ashland and Washburn. Duluth is very anxious to have us go there and so are the other places, and both offer large inducements. I looked over the stone quarries at Washburn, where they are turning out so much stone that they actually have hardly enough railroad facilities to take care of it. They tell me that back of Washburn is the finest strip of pine left in the state of Wisconsin. That is just what we want. We can take that stone and lumber by our road right through to Sioux City. The question of terminals will be decided very soon." Clocks, Watches, Jewelry A splendid stock for Use or for Birthday, Wedding and other Presents. Repairing warranted BESSESEN STEEN.
