IL, of Al-bert Lea is assisting and will be here every evening during the week. The interest in the meetings continues good. Fairmont Sentinel. The fur trade in this county, which at one time was the only means of the settlers’ gaining a livelihood, has gradually fallen off until now dealers say it really amounts to nothing Civilization has gradually driven most of the fur bearing animals. Stillwater Democrat. Ex-Senator Sabin’s household goods have begun to arrive and that gentleman and family w ill be with us again next week when they will again take up their abode. Fnlike his predecessor he has still “some little use for Minnesota’’ if the people were thwarted in their desire to re-elect him. W aseca Herald. The law authorizing the commissioners of this county to select and pur chase a site for a poor farm and to erect suitable buildings thereon will enable the board, at its next session, to take steps toward selecting a suitable site. This done, the more delicate part of the job will have been accomplished Fairmont Sentinel. E. F. Earl arrived in town Wednes day morning. He is here this time to look after building operations. Ile will have a large bam built on his Welcome farm and a new house put on his farm adjoining Mr. Payne’s a few miles east of town. Mr. Earl is going into his old business, that of real estate; and expects to send out lots of land lookers this season. Montevideo Leader. A. E. EllickvSon, of the Madison Press, we learn, has accepted the position of assistant cashier of the Lac qui I’arle County Bank. My, what a temptation it must be to *a county printer to see the piles of money about him, but Ashley can withstand temptation. We have evidence of this in that he enjoys single blessedness. Fairmont Sentinel. While tile open winter has been a great blessing to many people, there are some who would have been better off financially if the winter had been cold and stormy. There are hundreds of tons of line hay scattered all over the county that can neither be sold nor given away. The last shipments by our dealers proved a source of loss to them, and in one case not enough could be got for the hay to pay the freight. Pioneer Press Marc!) 4th. Port Townsend, Wash, advices from Alaska, per the steamer Ancan, are to the effect that Gov. A. P. Swineford. appointed from Marquette, Midi., and United States Marshal Barton Atkins have tendered their resignations, to take effect today, or as soon as their successors are appointed. Gov. Swineford is disposing of his property and milling interests iii Alaska, and intends to return to Michigan to live. The Alaskans are urging John Brady, of Juneau, as Swineford is successor. Hokah Chief. A mistaken opinion has gone abroad that Houston .County is represented in the legislature this winter by men of little ability and that not one of the three could make a speech—in fact not say an intelligent word. This illusion is happily dispelled. One of our distinguished statesmen in a Fit of extern poraneous eloquence seconded a motion to adjourn. The corridors of time as well as back stairs will echo his forensic ability. A brass band without the usual egg accompaniment awaits our hero. Owatonna Democrat. A team belonging to Mr. P. McXelly, living west of .Blooming Prairie, ran away in this city last Saturday. Striking against the chain that surrounds the nark, they were thrown inside and badly injurer!. One of the hows is so badly injured that it is not expected to live. This is a heavy loss for Mr. Mc-Nelly as the team was a valuable Orland he is not able to afford the loss without severe inconvenience. A Candid \ lew of Washington Territory. Prof. James Brady, lately principal of the Albert Lea public schools, writes as follows from seattle, where he is located, to the Caledonia Journal: Tho Puget sound is a beautiful sheet of water. This country is rich iii Fine timber, mostly Hr and cedar. Coal mines are somewhat developed, and iron yet undeveloped. There are many fertile valleys which raise all kinds of agricultural products except com. The uplands raise good fruit and vegetables. This is not an agricultural region for the present at hast, (inly patches an* yet cleared. The growth of ti miler is so great that much labor is necessary to tit the soil for cultivation. Life is too short for a man to attempt to clear a farm. Then* are some good towns in the territory, 8eattkvTacoma,Spokane Falls, Ellensburg and others. The climate is fine, the weather for this first month in the territory is like a spring or autumn month iii Minnesota only much more rain. I am well satisfied with the climate. The immigration is very great. People are Hocking in from ail parts of the country. There are many wealthy people here and a great many more who have not a cent. Then* are many men who have employment and a great many more who cannot get em-ent and who have not a cent to my the next meal. It is a good country for girls to work—they get in private families from $20 to $35 per month. No part of the country is more favorably situated and those of you who have plenty of money can do much better bere than at home; but those of you who have limited means, think twice before coming. - - - - This is the Bight Doctrine. Lanesboro Journal. Never send a dollar away from home when the article that dollar can purchase can be obtained at hone. Money is our Financial blood. Its circulation keeps the business body alive. Bleed that body by sending your money away from home and soon trade will put on a look of lethargy and inactivity. Always trade at nome. It is twice blessed. It helps the persons patronized, and finds its way to you again. Spend your money with merchants who pay taxes, and are with you the year through. - ■ ■ — Important Notice. On June 15th the copartnership of Wolden & Wentz, harness makers, will be dissolved by mutual consent, and all should take notice that now is the time to buy harness goods, as our stock must be closed out before that date. All owing the firm will please call and settle at once as on April loth all outstanding accounts will be turned over to an attorney for collection without further notice. 10t4    WOLDEN    &    WENTZ. Observing the Proprieties. Chicago News. -Don’t you know, Emily, that it is not proper for you to turn around and look after a gentleman?” But, mamma, I was only looking to see if he was looking to see if I was looking. .Notice of Corporation Meeting.

Creston Republican, When Major Hotchkiss awoke and attempted to get out of bed Tuesday morning, his right side failed to respond and he at once realized that he had suffered from a stroke of paralysis.
