Albert Lea Freeborn County Standard (Newspaper) - June 29, 1876, Albert Lea, Minnesota■■tip |tfcborn bounty j^iatuhttd ALBERT LEA, MINN., JUNE 29, 1876 LOCAL. Riaper and Mower for Sale.— An Excelsior Dropper in fine condition, it offered for sale very cheap, on time, if desired, or exchanged for other property. Apply to I). G. Parker. Since our article on the Democratic Convention was in type, it has been announced that Tilden, of New York, was nominated on the second ballot. Rfmember Portland.—Our citizens will do well to remember that the city of Portland was once laid in ashes, by the careless use of a fire cracker, and while it is impossible, and perhaps undesirable, to restrain the boys from indulging in this sport on the Fourth of July, we suggest to property-owners ALDEN LOCALS. FROM OUR REGULAR CORRESPONDENT. that an extra degree of caution en their Universalist.—Rev. Mr Goudy will preach at Masonic Hall next Sunday, at 3 P. M. Baptist.—Rev. Mr. Wood will preach in the Baptist church next Sunday morning, at the usual hour. The young man who arrived at the house of Dr. Barck last Sunday morning, causes an unusual smile on the countenance of the father. The several committees appointed for the Fourth, are notified to call at Wedge & Spicer’s store early on that day, and receive their badges. part is needed to prevent a general conflagration here on Tuesday next. Should the weather prove favorable, we shall probably have the largest gathering that the town has ever witnessed, and, of course, some of the number will be careless. It therefore behooves every business man to see to it that all dry hay and straw, old papers, and other substances of a like nature, are removed from Ii is premises previous to that day ; and if every man will have an extra barrel or two of water placed where it can be easily reached, it m*»y be the means of saving his buildings. Try it. Land Office Notice. — Persons having business at the Worthington Lamd Office will be interested in knowing that Capt Griuager will be bere on the 8th of July. On the Fourth of July, 1876, the Postoffice at Albert Lea, will be closed from 9 A. M. until 3 P. M., then open for one hour for the distribution of the wail. Railroad time, sharp. Two Certainties.—This is the subject of a Sabbath-School concert to be given at the Presbyterian church next Sunday evening. Those who desire to learn more about it, will no doubt bt present at that time ; and those who desire to hoar the entire concert, must be on hand promptly at 7$ o’clock. The County Board decided, at the last meeting, to let the poor farm for one year. Farm Machinery.—Now is the time to buy an Excelsior Grain Dropper in first rate order, for almost nothing. Call at this office, and see. Hard on Slocum. — Many of our readers know the genial Slocum, of the Blue Earth City Post. Prof. Leslie, who was here last winter, is a practical joker, and he has recently made one npon Slocum. The family quarrel between Prof Leslie and his wife, as rehearsed at his closing concert in Blue Earth City, is said to have been the richest thing of the evening. The climax was reached when, in the midst of a duett, the quarrelsome couple were about to sepa-she standing on one end of the Wheat ie looking better since the rain. Alden will not celebrate the Fourth. Our people will mostly go to Albert Lea to have a good time. There will he a pigeon shoot here next Friday, June 30th. The boys are anticipating lots of fun. The concert given by the Bell Ringers last Monday evening was well attended, and all were highly entertained. The concert is the best that ever stopped at Alden. We think that the township of Alden ins had more breaking done this season than any other town in the county. Mr. Burhans has rented his store to parties from Owatonna, who will put in a stock of hardware before harvest. Mr. Barrett, of Winneshiek county. Iowa, will erect a store building, and put in a stock of goods, as early a9 possible. The latest novelty, or reality rather, in Alden, is a bath-house, situated opposite the mill. It is owned and operated by Mr. Tyler. A good barber shop in connection with it would be a paying investment. There is a material change in the complexion of the wheat since the rain last Thursday night. \\ ith favorable weather, we think there will be a little below an average crop in this vicinity Our village school closes next Friday, for a vacation until after harvest, when it will again be opened under the supervision of the present teacher, Miss Ernst. Mr David Homing and wife started for the Centennial last Tuesday, expecting to be there on the Fourth. Dave says he is bound to have a good time, “ if he don’t lay up a cent.” rate- Dedication.—The new Danish Bap. list church at this place will be dedicated on Sunday next. Rev. Mr. Rechenbacks. of Chicago’ will preach in the Scandinavian language in the morning; Rev. Mr. Oatergrcn, of Minneapolis, in English in the afternoon, and in the Scandinavian in the evening. Look Out for Sharpers - Two suspicious characters are in the county and are doubtless playing upon the credulity of farnurr. They afe finely dressed, sport dand||icane8, and ride in a somewhat stylish carriage. They make themselves kuown by a pretence of dealing in wheat, and at once appeal to the sympathy of lbs farmer by proposing to buy bis crop at a fabulous figure Before they got through, they introduce their real buaineos, by offer, ing to sell dry goods at what they claim to be half price, which, to our mind, would stamp them as swindling vagabonds. Look out for them. CENTENNIAL. 1876. lf*. i9,' ergrMHt doth MEH j. MINNEAPOLIS LUBBER. J W, P.

Stolen.—On Monday night, a span of mules belonging to Mr. Connor, was stolen from the barn of Mrs. John Colby, in Itasca. The thieves, evidently with aview of misleading pursuers, first started toward Freeborn, and afterwards turned eastward, going through fields “"Excursion Tickets will be sold between all stations, on the Southern Minnesota road, at one fare and one-fifth for the round trip.

Tickets will be good to return on any of the trains of July 4th and on the regular passenger ,tra ins of July 5th. Mr. J. C.

Two breaking teams are : at work on the place, and he ha-* quite a quantity of blooded stock of different kinds, and the old farm which has lain dormant for so many years, begins to 6how gratifying evidences of activity. and by-ways, hiding the animals in a grove a mile or two north of town.

The Democrats are now in session at St. Louis, holding their national convention to put in nomination candidates for President and Vice President. It i> yet too early to give our Leaders the information they most desire, but the following dispatch throws some light upon the state of things in that city : It is conceded on all hands that Tilden has a majority in the convention. It is also coneeded that he cannot get two thirds, except by some arrangement with the friends of the other candidate*, or some one of them. and this being the ease a desperate effort is u^ve befog made to induce Hendricks to enfer the combination, by which he shall take i I the second place now, and wait until i 1880 fer the leadership The Tilden ! leaders promise him that he shall have a dear field if he will only yield now Most of the Hendricks delegates spurn the idea, and manifest an jlni-toWardTdden OFFICERS OF ‘□FHIE DAYS    A. €.

Lumbermen’s Proclamation. Inasmuch as we have given up all idea of attending our second National Centennial, we have concluded to celebrate the present one in a becoming manner, aud for that reason our offices and yards will be closed on the coming Fourth of July. If any person contemplates paying any money on account that day, please hand it in on the 3d, as money does not usually keep well over the Fourth of July. W H. Place. C. A. Christie. W. P. Sergeant. Historical Compilation. Great interest is taken in the historical compilation of the country in this Centennial year, and a strong effort is being made to make this a lead ing feature of every local celebration. Pettengill & Co., of New York, send us a circular inviting a copy of The Standard immediately following and containing an account of the Fourth celebration. They say, “ Our objcci'is to make a historical compilation," and add, “ This number is expected to give a historical sketch of your county.” Papers containing these histories they propose to bind in several volumes, for exhibition at Philadelphia. They say “ The volumes containing these papers will have an interest and a value through all time to come.” Is He the Oldest?—Gee Gardner. of Shell Rock, having put in a claim of being the oldest settler, the Morgans,of Moscow, inform us that they arrived in the county on the 30th of May. 1855. which was ten days earlier than Mr. G claims The question now is, are the Morgans the oldest settlers residing in the county ? The Wheat Crop.—Greatly exagerated reports have gone abroad relative to the wheat prospect of this region. That the crop will be light, there is but little doubt, but the present prospect indicates that it will be far from a fail-The early drought undoubtedly tire. Freeborn Kerns. The wheat crop through this section of country looks bad. Not over half a crop in any event can be expected The late rains have improved it some. Barley and oats look very well. The Andrews family gave a concert last evening, to a crowded house. It was good. Come again. Cakii or Credit -A grocer in Clara, Cal., has adopted an on method of business. Kick side of th store is fitted up for business on its ow account. In the general arrangement each side is a duplicate of the other.the difference being that cne side ta cath and the other credit.

Special Trains, on the Fourth —The accommodating officers of the .Southern Minnesota Railroad, send out a circular containing the follow ing grat ifying announcement : Parties from Winnebago, Delevan, Wells, and Alden going to Albert Lea, on the morning passenger train of July Fourth, to participate in the celebration at that point, may return home on a special train, which will be run for their accommodation, leaving Albert Lea, at 10:45 p. M. Tickets will be sold for one fare and one-fifth, for the round trip. Railroad Matters.—At a meeting of the Southern Minnesota railroad company in La Crosse, Monday evening of last week, President Thompson, Secretary Wells, and four directors resigned, and new directors were eleeied. The movement is for the purpose of getting the road out of the hands of the receiver, and to ratify all claims against the old company, to be done with the consent of all parties concerned. Col. Albert M. Lea. From tho Galveston News. Mr. D. G. Parker, of the Freeborn County Standard, published at the town of Albert Lea, Mina., writes to the postmaster * at Galveston :    “    Is Colonel Albert Lea dead, or where is he? Our place was named in his honor, but it has been a longtime since we have heard from him, and we are anxious to know whether he is dead or moved to some other place.” The Colonel, at last accounts, was still living and in good health. He removed from Galveston to Corsicana, Texas, two or three years since. He has often spoken with pleasure of his early visit to the locality which now bears his name. He was then an officer in the United States army, and it was not long after the Sabbath Schools,—The Rev. Mr’ Alden, County Secretary of Sabbath Schools, for Freeborn county, reports to the State Association that during the vear 1875 there were 15 schools,having 144 officers and teachers, 899 scholars with an average attendance of 649,and that $479 were expended during the year for the support of these schools. We are of the opinion that the county was not very thoroughly canvassed in ’making up this report. New Mail Route.—The Govern mcnt has invited bids for a daily mail from Freeborn to Alden and return. We are glad to see this recognition of the importance of that section of the county, and now if Shell Rock can be bettor supplied with mail facilities, we thai! be Inppy. The “ Boss ” Gone.—Sheriff Davis says the Wells Atlas, passed through town Monday, on his way to Stillwater, taking with him Elijah Gates, the “ boss ” horse thief. Good for Wells—Yes. Good for Thompson. The Wells Gazette of last Thursday, says : ‘‘On Friday last Col. Clark Wr. Thompson sold to an English colony of about seventy families, eight thousand six hundred and forty acres of land surrounding this town, a large portion of which has been lying idle for some time, and as a natural consequence all manner of business has been somewhat stagnated, and very many of our citizens have left the place, disheartened. Those that remained, although they at times have had an up-hill business,now bid fair to have their anticipations realized. “ A small portion of the colony will be here within a few days, having arrived in New York city Saturday last. •The remainder will arrive in October and November next. They propose engaging principally in stock-raising and the making of butter and cheese. The cheese factory will resume business so soon as the colony shall have one hundred and fifty cows. “ Our business men generally wear much more cheerful countenances, and a feeling of the ‘good time coming’ has taken the place of despondency that has so long prevailed ” Feeling called npon to serenade his deal gazelle he borrowed an accordion and, after getting so that he Could squeeze a few doleful noises out ot it, he posted himself under her window one night and began plaintively howl ing, ‘* Oh, whisper what thou feclcst I” She poked her head out of the window at the third line and said, ‘ OU, it’s you. is it ?

Black Hawk war that he made a tour through the then terra incognita that now constitutes the States of Wisconsin and Minnesota. The whole wild region was full of beauty and interest to the young West Pointer; but the loveliest spot was that which now bears his name; and it was bis description of it, published at the time, that gave attention and note to the site of the future town. He has passed an eventful life since then ; married and reared an interesting family, and had the sorrowful privilege of witnessing the death of his son, Lieut. Lea, of the United States navy, who was killed in the battle of Galveston, January I, 1863 Col. Lea had retired from the army because be was unwilling to bear arms against his native South. His remarks at the funeral of his 9on were worthy of an ancient Roman. He began :    “    My soul has been wrung this day ; ” explained how he had been seperated from his son bv the chances of war, and the sense of duty, as differently understood by father aud son ; dwelt upon the terrible incidents connected with the contest, and begged his hearers never to forget, even in the heat of battle, that there were good men on both sides, and that the claims of humanity aud magnanimity were as strong as those ot arms. aud inseparable from them in the true soldier. A Source of Regret.—A gentle man not living a thousand miles from Augusta. Maine, is in a very low con dition, physically, and will probably not survive many days.
