S. (’.Jansen W#* are grinding CHO : bushels a day at the big Steam mill,
I and shall soon increase it by running night and day. We have no’tiuuble in si lling all the Hour w»* make.
; Frederick Tuned, Mansfield W ■ have had much less rain in our town than in other parts of the county, and corn is almost a failure. Nothing can save it now, and it is a great loss to us.
Hon. K. Erickson I am going to the .stat#* fair and would Ilk#* to attend the Rochester fair also. A man can learn a great deal that he can ii ike profitable to bim, and therefore I believe in fairs.
Prof. Swenson I was at North wood last w#***k and found many friends of our school there. The county superintendent is doing all he can for us. and we will get several good pupils from there.
Titos. W. Wilson- We arc* running both mills at Alden and Twin Lakes, and have all w»* can do. The full capacity of the two mills is 55 barrels of flour daily. I he* wheat is No. I and so is the dour.
J. Johnson, Hath Skinner’s lake is entirely dry. I never before knew of such a drouth. The wed drillers ar* having a bonanza, and one good will come of it: We will have mon* good wells and better water.
S. P. Sorenson, Freeborn -The farmers have not threshed, money is scarce, and times are tight. I think money will be more plenty in a month or so.
' Farm produce is low, but so is nearly eve rything fanners have to buy.
An Intuitive Woman Two scandals are brewing in town, but don’t you say I mentioned it. You know the people are quite prominent and I would not have it known that I said a word for anything.
Fred. Fink, Jr., Pickerel Lake never saw it so dry iii this county There was a big lire west of my plat’# Saturday, and I feared it might do great damage, I never knew a lire to burn so in the fields before frost.
M. P. Howe I will sell my wheat every time in Hie Fall when I can get 70 cents for it. I shall bring .something to the county fair. driving horses and perhaps something else. We ought to all turn in and make it a success.
Rev. J. C. Robinson, Alden—It is astonishing that the crops are so good. My coni is first-rate, and so is much of it in our town. But water is getting very scarce. Farmers go ten miles to Wells to get artesian water for their stock.
Judge A. IL Bartlett Corn and hogs are now the main reliance of Shell Bock, and a good crop of wheat don’t help the failure of corn. We have been doing a big credit business expecting better times tills Fall, but I guess we shall have to draw in some now.
W. II. II. Gordon—If we ever find out who set fire to our creamery peo pie will be surprised. We offer a reward of 82m for evidence to prove who did it and it is not impossible that we may yet discover the villain. We intend to rebuild and go on with the business as soon as possible.
T. A. Medius, Geneva I bet a cow with Dr. Twiford that Hie lied Wing road would not be here in a year. That was in March of last year, and I shall have to go and ask him to drive his cow over. He will do it if I say so, but I would rather have lost the bet and paid for the cow myself.
I). Ii. P. 11 lbbs—I have made an estimate of the amount of water dowing into Fountain lake in ti hours from the eight artesian wells on its banks, and am satisfied that it equals 75,om gallons, That amount of fresh pure water is certainly a great advantage in keeping up the lake.
A Republican We are going to wait a little and see whether Mr. I rankness gets a good outfit for the post office, and if he does not he will have trouble.
\ leading merchant will at any time thought best, begin the sale of stamps and postal cards, and besides, tho matter will be fully presented to the postoffice department and the senate at Washington.
Richard Fitzgerald, Bath—I don’t come to town as often as I used to, but I get the Standard aud read the proceedings of the county board. I iind they are very liberal in allowing themselves 8d a day and mileage, amounting to still more, for viewing roads in distant parts of the county, and J think they have a pretty good job. lf the people would figure it tip as I am doing they would be astonished at the end of the year.

We made the county poor farm a visit Sunday, and wore much Interested iii the institution. It comprises a half section of land in Bancrof t, four miles north of the city, and th#* buildings are situated near the main road on the high hank of Bancrof t creek, which is entirely dry now, but which is generally a line spring-supplied stream, ruder the capable supervision of Commissioner Sandberg a large addition is sung erected to the old building

which is likely to meet the* demands # tin* county. The addition has a large dining room, kitchen and pantry and bed room on the first floor, a large sitting room, which may la* used necessary as a sleeping room, and tw bed room® on the second floor. Th building, when completed, will la large and commodious structure There is a fine bani on the premise's with a good basement for stable, and a well WO feet deep supplies an alum dance of excellent water. An imper taut need is a good cistern, and we ar# surprised that provision has not been made for one en* this. It is almost necessary as a well, for soft water quit#* indispensible for washing and bathing purposes. The building should be provided with troughs and spouts and a cistern should b** made at once Mr. and Mrs. Hazelton are greatly interested in making the farm a model place; the rooms and halls are carpet ed: they are clean, attractive and home like. and it is apparent that the county board acted wisely in selecting them to manage the institution.
The land is worn out with repeated crops, not having been fertilized, all the straw even having been drawn off, and it is v#*ry unfortunate that th** inward cannot giv«* Mr. Hazelton a contract of at least five ycan so that he would feel justified in making the necessary expenditures f or teams, machinery, cows. and the like*, to restore the farm to fertility and thus mak.* it profitable and self-supporting.
I b# re ar** only four inmates now, as follows: Ole Tronson and wife, Henry Fulton and Jells Steflenson. With th** coining of winter, however, there are likely to be a score or more, and they ar** all sure to find at the farm a comfortable home, good food and kind and attentive treatment.

Re*! Whig Republic in,
Hie arrangements tor entering Duluth, which have just been Completed by the Duluth, Bed Wing A Southern railroad officials, reference to which was made in th** Heel Wit dence of the Duluth Ne,, ,, important, and mark another step ii th** advancement of that gn at enter prise. They include th** us** of twenty seven miles of the line of th** Eastern Minnesota railroad, in addition to rights and privileges in connection with the terminal facilities of that rail road both at Duluth and West Nu peri or. These terminal facilities are the best possessed by any railroad entering Duluth, and a mon* magnificent system it will be hard to find anywhere in the west. Included in them'are elevators and coal clocks, and in addition to all this a line of six steamships is operated on the lakes in connection with the system, affording quick and cheap transportation to the ea*t. The system has cost over two million dollars and now could hardly be duplicated even for that sum. The officials of the road are to be* congratulated on effect mg this arrangement, for it insures a prestige that would be bani to scour** in any other way.
I’he agent of the road, who is now in Europe in its financial interests, announce that a party there is now ready to cive th** money *»n th** bonds of the completed road from Bed Wing to Zumbrota, and furnish th** money on each section as fast as built. The comboy has also secured a responsible contractor, who stands ready to build I section of the road south from Oolith and take his pay partly in cash md partly in stock* Everything points o th** interest of capitalists ana rail-read men in the KMM, aud th** outlook is promising for a successful consummation of this important scheme, after many years of hard work.

A Generous and inferred Compliment from a monocrat.
Weepy Ey#* Herald, Senator Tom. Bowen, editor.
Noticing that Hon. J). F. Morgan is about to remove from Albert Lea and engage in the practice of law at st. Baul, the Herald congratulates him upon his determination to eschew* politics and devote himself to a work for which he is so well fitted, and in which he can win fortune and fame. Mr Morgan was one of the ablest and most valuable men in the legislature, aud a strong effort was made to secure for him the appointment of I', s. district attorney, but as fiis services were rendered more in the interests of the people of Minnesota than in behalf of political cliques, his hope of an appointment was doomed to disappointment. This is fortunate for Mr. Morgan. A man like him has no business in politics. When a man is courageous enough to despise schemers and refuses to bend himself to the mean and sordid work that they demand from every on** engaged in the public service, he exposes himself to the heels of every brainless jackass in the land. If there were truth and candor enough in the public press to set him l ight before the people the people would sustain him, but it is a melancholy truth that there are too many newspapers of th** vicious kind, to uiake his continued success a possibility. If anyone doubts this theory, let him look around and count how-many men of Mr. Morgan’s stamp are making our laws arid administering our government.

After giving an excellent account of the lat<* Iowa excursion to this city, the Northwood Index makes the following comments:
I he reverse is one not nearly as pleasant to describe*; yet it contains a lesson which should make the beneiits of prohibition more apparent than ever. As the time for starting on the homeward journey drew near, and the visitors wended their way to the trains through the various streets leading to Hie depot, it was noticeable that a considerable proportion of them were in a more or less advanced state of intoxication, and that those so situated were iii the main boys and young men, ranging in age from 16 to 25 years, w ho as the crowd increased converted it into something little more respectable than a mob. There urn probably about 20 saloons in Albert Lea, so that Hie accomodations in that line were more than ample, and the temptation was thrust before these youths at every turn. While the fact of their being away from home and unknown in th** place of their debauch had doubtless something to do with their ready yielding, it is nevertheless more than probable that a large share of those boys have an inherited taste for stimulants and are only saved from becoming drunkards by having the temptation removed from them and by living in a community where the business of drunkard-making has ceased to be one of the lawful occupations.

It is customary in other countries and some parts of this, to celebrate the close of harvest by a festival at which classes participate. Such affairs ring the masses together and create good feeling and fellowship in a community. Ii)** (i erin an J.utlierans propose to arrange such festival in connection with a fair, and have been offered kind assistance by other church organizations.

At 7:Ju p. in., will commence a grand musical entertainment furnished by JJrundin’s band, also by a band of string instru-nients and several organizations of hnglish, .scandinavian and German singers. A great feature will be the singing ot the children who gave such a delightful concert at the opera house under Brot. Shryock not long since. Hie pauses between Hie musical performances will be filled by fishing and other innocent sports fur tile young and old, refreshments passed around, acquaintances formed, and renewed and good feeling generally cultivated. Over one hundred German Lutheran families from throughout Hie county have been invited and promised to be present, but as tilers is room formally more we cordially invite all classes of Albert Lea and vicinity.

Cholera in Michigan.
Dr. F. D. Larke of Rogers City, Michigan, says Hie epidemic of last year in Presque Isle county, in which so many persons lost their lives, was choleric dysentery instead of cholera as first reported. He used Chamberlain’s Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy and says it succeeded where all other remedies failed. Not a single case was lost in whish it was used. This remedy is the most reliable and most successful medicine known for colic, cholera morbus, dysentery, diarrhea and bloody flux. 25 and 50 cent bottles for sale by Parker & Briggs.
