Its Resources and Business Future- Editors La Crosse Morning Leader: About a year ago an intelligent cor- respondent of the St. Paul Press wrote an elaborate and interesting description of the then condition of Albert Lea. Favorable changes, showing a continued and rapidly increasing prosperity, have since occurred; and the closing d-iys of tbs present year may bo properly ?pent in making some nates regarding the progress since made. Thirty-five years ago, this portion of the State, then under the dominion- of the Sioux Indians, was partially ex- plored by Lieut. Albert M Lea, then of tho First Regiment United States Dra- goons, and from whom the town, and the beautiful hike adjoining it, subse- quently derived their names. In the whole range of his explorations, starting from Fort Des Moines, and embracing the country on the west bank of the Mississippi as bigb. up as Wabasbaw, and returning southwest th'is1 re- gion, no district of. country appeared to him rrr.-vre rn its srenery, nnd The policy of the Southern. Minne- sota Railroad hns been, nnd will con- tinne. to throw open their road t i :i I healthy and free competition, leaving the erection nf elevators and warehouses j entirely to private p-.n ties. NOT I.NCORPOnATED. The town is without the usual expensive municijKil machinery which constitutes so prodigal a luxury in les-> populous and wealthy, but mure ambi- tious western cities. NEWSPAPERS.

There nre three establishments de- nominated the Harring- ton House, being conducted with a de- irree of success, considering the ham- pered and illy-arranged building, that nil the guests. Harrington Son are competent to manage a first- clat-s hotel, and the capitalists of Albert Lea. with a proper comprehension of their own interests and the public wants, will soon, probably, adopt meas- ures for the erection of a hotel building creditable to their growing town, and place Harrington Son in charge. NEW STRUCTURES. The building improvements during 1 the year 1870. have been largely in ex- t cess of those of any preceding A I business block, of brick, by Mr. White, j and an elegant residence by Capt. Coch- rane and also one by Mr. KiVclson are among the most prominent: but a mul- titude of smaller but comfortable struc- tures have given active employment to ull the mechanical forces, and created a bi isk demand during (he year for build- ing material. To appreciate the scenery of Albert Lea and its surroundings, one must choose the summer months, when the margins of the delightful lakes are car- peted with their verdure and their forests, and realize the extent of the work of nature in combining at thia point the useful with the best typo of the ornamental.- Yours, VISITOR. NICHOLAS SMITH, .of rierkimercouij- 'ty, N. Y., has made- as high as Ibs. of cheese, shipping weight, in one year, from a lierd of twenty cows. He makes his milk up at home, and sells for the prices paid in Herkimer market. He sells every fortnight, thus saving shrinkage. He also keeps the cows and none but the best; and slops them a.little in the spring and at times of drouth, and does not overstock farm. His cows do not come in oarly, and he has early cut hay to feed them from the time of calving un- til they are turned to the pasture. Probably most any dairyman witji .the same care in selecting and treating his sto.ok'andiin" the-manufacture and sale of his cheese, could also show a yield of 710'poatidB to a cow. SPAPERf ;
