Chattanooga is only SU and I shall go to North Carolina that way. Will Crane Your reference to scandals has stirred up several folks. They don’t know which of them is hit. An Insurance Agent— Water works ought to reduce the rate of insurance in Albert Lea twenty-five percent. Alderman Slocum—Water works will enhance tin- value of real property in this city the full amount of their cost the first year. Secretary Parker— Dr. Abbott is confident that tile main college build ing will not accommodate all the new students; that the new building will have to be furnished, and I hope he is correct. Thos. Blackfin -I examined the new-style hot water heaters for residences in La Crosse, and was assured that they are the best arid cheapest in use. A large store there was heated last winter with only two tons of coal and a little wood. I think I shall try the system. M. II. Allen I have five wells, and scarcely any water. O’Connor’s lake is dry for the lirst time known. Farmers generally cannot afford to drill deep wells and put up wind nulls; they cost too much, and if we have no rain soon, I don’t know what we will do for water. \Y. C. Mitchell- There are are a few skin-llints in this town who won’t give a cent for anything. They never subscribe for a Fourth, for a county fair or for any public benefit, and if the charge for getting into heaven is 50 cents, they will never give it; they will prefer to be left out. E. K. Ramsey I am getting more money this year on machine collections than for several years before, but I tell you there will be a good deal of suffering in some parts of Dakota where I have been. I ii some sections the crops are an entire failure and people have nothing to live on nor money to buy with. Wyman Greene—I hardly expect to occupy Linden Terrace before next year, when my parents, who reside at Greene, Iowa, will probably come and live with me. My rather is a clergyman and on account of his advanced years will be unable to continue much longer in the service. — -«•»• - Signs of the ({iiickeiiing. Minneapolis Tribune. The heavy crops, the admission of the new states, the prospective opening of the Sioux reservation, and a dozen other straws all point to a marked quickening of Northwestern prosperity.  — When He Is One, Of Course.

Concert Company, after only very brief advertising, gave tin entertainment at the opera house last Wednesday evening to an audience tGat was disappointing as to numbers, bitt which included many excellent critics and lovers of good music. The treat given was a surprise, and proved to be a succession of delights from beginning to end. No program of music ever before given in Albert Lea bas excelled it in merit or artistic rendition, and it was a feast of melody winch is rarely heard even on the metropolitan boards. Prof. Aamold with his violin takes you into the entrancing delights of dreamland; into the heaven of harmony and sweet sounds, Next to Ole Bull, he was pronounced the most talented and skillful violinist who has appeared in public in this country, and we believe the verdict is not an exaggeration. He it certainly a marvelously fine player, and deserves the high reputation he I RLH earned. Of the soprano, Miss Ellen Reach Y aw, we Cannot withhold milch less encomium and (lo her justice. Mn* is a lovely, modest and winning young lady, and her voice is Attuned to the nightingales. Her notes are not as strong as those of some of the best singers but they are as deliciously pure, sweet and natural as the voices of the rippling mountain stream. She has had rare cultivation as well, and the frequent encores she received attested the appreciation of the audience. It was a misfortune that Mr lung, the tenor, was suffering from a severe cold and was unable to sing, but his rendition of the pianoselections proved him to be an artist of superior talent and culture. A very pleasing and acceptable variety was given the entertainment by Miss Mira Reals, who is certainly an elocutionist of wonderful originality, naturalness and training. In their way her “Irish School Master” and several selections given in response to enthusiastic en cores, were tis artistic and enjoyable as were Miss Y awa delicious “Swiss Echo Song,, or lier glorious “Aria from Lucia.” Miss Beals won the hearty plaudits of her audience and will long be rein em tiered for the grace, line acting and which she displayed. The company is composed of very interesting and model ladies and gentlemen. Mr. Victor Throne, tbs manager is a son of Marcus Throne, the celebrated Norwegian revolutionist and religious agitator. The latter led an insurrection in Norway which resulted in his being imprisoned seven years. He came to America after wards and conducted a free-though paper in Chicago for several years, and is now living in Eau Claire, Wis. He has been a man of remarkable ability, influence and record, and his son in herits much of Ids talent, prepossessing personality and executive ability. .Miss Yaw w hose charming, child-like face and graceful figure won the hearts of all who met her, is only nineteen years of age. .she received her musical education in New York City and is recognized as one of the most promis ing singers now before the public. Her home at present is in Minneapolis. Miss Beals, who is also very attractive in form and feature received her training in Boston. She is in the lower twenties in years; is as bright mentally as she is winning in face and expres sion, and has a very promising future. Prof. Aamold, as he informed us, is married to his violin, and it is a good match. The instrument is a genuine Cremona, and with the bow, cost 83,QUO. It is a sensitive, soulful and almost speaking thing; lie loves it and it always responds to the eloquent be quests of its master. Mr. dung was educated iii the best musical conservatories of Berlin, Germany, and has only been in America six months. Both he and Prof. Aamold are very sociable and pleasant to meet. Mr. dung is to be married soon, but the others of the company are single, and we venture to say for the benefit of their admiring friends in Albert Lea, are fancy free. Prof. Aamold. Mr. dung, and Miss Beals, we believe, now reside in St. Paul, People who failed to hear the company when here really do not know how rare a treat they missed, and we are glad to be able to imform them that they may yet be able to repair their mistake, for the company made a partial promise to return within a few month’s and give another entertainment with a program, if possible, even more attractive than before.
