Like ( ol.Sellers,
I the new firm expect that “there are millions in it.” Seattle is destined to ;• become one of the largest cities on the | Bari Ile coast north of San Francisco, TUe terrible fire that swept away the i ditto* business part of the city will } prove to be only a temporary inoonven-I Mince. Large and handsome brick J blocks are being rapidly pushed to com-pillion upon the sites occupied by fraune huifdings before the fire. You know there is a personality to the community in every city; in Hoe ton a stranger is made to feel that he is wel-eorne, in ('hicago that he is in every-body’l way. In this respect Scottie is like boston. The business man here is always cordial and courteous
before leaving Gig Harbor I platted what is known as Woodworth's addi J lion to (Jig Harbor City. Iii the early 1 history of Freeborn county Mr. Wood worth was a resident of Geneva. (Jig Harbor bids fair to become one of th* favorite summer resorts on the coast.
It is certainly one of the finest harbors f on I’aget Sound.

For myself I desire to thank you most heartily for tile kind and generous encouragement I always received from the Standard.

Rev. Mr. YMasker's Farewell at the East Church.
The capacity **f the East Lutheran church was tax«*d to the utmost, Sunday the 14th, where had congregated the I Hoople of the parish, and visitors from thv? c*ty. Austin, Newry, Hayward and else ▼here to hear Rev. Ylvisaker’s farewell sermon. Rev. Ylvisaker preach a powerful and eloquent sermon «->n the text of Romans, 5, 20, after whi ch he touchingly took formal leave of ti.’e congregation.
It is a Latter of universal regret that Rev. Ylvisaker has found it necessary to .’eave the Freeborn congregations. IR* has shown himself to be a cultured, earnest, faithful and hardworking mil ’ister, which with his social qualities h; « endeared him to the Scandinavian p* ’Ople of the county His health having commenced to fail he has accepted a c; 'll from the Decorah congregation, w 'here he will not be obliged to expose hi wself by travelling as has been the ca w here, though his duties will in no i^egree be less arduous.
All who have had the L’enefit of his acquaintance join iii wish ing Rev. Ylvisaker success in his ii “w field of labor, where he will move in a short time, and hope he will be sp; ured many years for the good work iii which he has been so eminently successful.
Rev. .Strand of Northwood IovJa will be Rev. Ylvisaker’s successor, but will not be here permanently till in the early winter. Rev. James will iir the meantime serve the congregations.
Prof. Larson, instructor in inusilc at the High School presided at the organ and showed himself to be an expert; in musical lore.
We noticed Mr. Toekle and family, and Mr. C. Johnson and ladies, from Austin skaking hands with their numerous friends.

cents a pound and the demand for it is unlimited. Flax straw can be obtained in unlimited quantities at from three to five dollars a tori in this and surrounding counties, and there is hardly a limit to the extent of the industry if a perfected machine is what it is believed it will be. It Will employ hundreds of hands, men, women and children, and would eventually lead to establishing a linen mill in Albert Lea. for the manufacture of cloths and fabrics of every discription in which linen is used.
Mr. .Sierman had lieen urging the matter upon the consideration of our citizens for several weeks, w hen. finally, a meeting of the hoard of trade was held last Wednesday evening, which resulted in an organized effort to push the enterprise to a success. A company Ills been formed composed of K. M. Todd, ( '. W. Ransom, J. P. Hov-land, \\. A. Morin and Mr. Sierman, the capital stock of which will probably be SOO,(Iid, and prompt measures have been taken to proceed to test the invention, to protect their rights in it through patent, arid to perfect plans of Operation. Ample funds have been provided, Mr. Sierman has been in the country buying unthreshed flax to work in the machine, and the project is being actively prosecuted.
I he men concerned in it are very confident of success, and all will hope that they may achieve their highest anticipations, for if they do, it means fortunes to themselves, a big benefit to Albert Lea. and an industry which will prove of incalculable advantage to Minnesota and the entire country.

Cholera in Michigan.
Dr. F. D. Larke of Rogers City, Michigan, says the epidemic of last year iii 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 which it was used. This remedy is the most reliable and most successful medicine known for colic, cholera morbus, dysentery, diarrhoea and bloody tlux. 25 and GO cent bottles for sale by Parker & Briggs.

A XrwNpapfr Carrier Who Wen *JO.-OOO in the Louisiana Mtate Lottery.
Ina neat little brick cottage, at No. 3407 LaSalle street, there resides the happiest and snuggest little family of Germans that could be found iii many a mile’s hunt. It is the home of Charles Melnhardt, his wife and little-3-year-old daughter. Only a few months ago, Mr. Me in hard t was in tolerably fair circumstances, now he is what may be called the Jay Gould of Weft St. Louis. In short, at the last drawing of the Louisiana State littery he held a tenth part of the number 87,835, which drew the capital prize of $300,000. A Star-Savings reporter called at the residence of Mr. Mein-hardt this morning. Mr Meinhardt was out on some speculation, but his wife met the reporter and said: “We are now a very happy family. We won 830,000 and got every cent of it a few days ago. It was a very lucky thing, and we have only been playing the lottery for about four months. I have been buying all the tickets, but I get them under my husband’s name.
I bought this lucky one and took 82 out el his pocket to buy it, and I’m glad I did it now. My husband will continue to carry papers, but lie will invest in real estate to a considerable extent. I would like to see somebody else do as well as we. We intend to play a little every now and then.” Two other gentlemen of this city held one-twentieth tickets and each drew 815,(XXJ, one through the Lafayette and the other through the Fourth National Rank. Resides the above luck of JSC Louisans, there are any number of people holding numbers of smaller prizes. The heaviest winners at this drawing were all in pretty fair circumstances, and now that they have acquired sudden wealtth, intend to have a pretty good time out of it. Two of them are investing in real estate iii the West End. Mr. Meinhardt while still carrying papers, is contemplating a trip to the old country with his family. —St. Louis (Mo.)
