The council held a regular meeting Monday evening, all members being present. The minutes ol the last meeting were read and approved. The street committee was instructed to repair tin* road on the hill by the cemetery. The street committee reported that a gravel walk had been provided Oil Railroad .Street, west of the S. M. track, and that the Pick* re} Lake road hid wen repaired. The cleric was instructed to give notice through the papers to people to trim their trees along the sidewalks. The lighting committee reported that the contractors agreed to furnish the biti an ce of the lamps this week. The removal of the electric light from East ( lark street was referred to the street committee. Wrn. Fenhoit asked permission for the popcorn man fo put Ids stand on William street at the southeast comer of Gage, Holland & Hayden’s store, it was decided that the city has no right to grant such a privilege, but it was understood that th** council would not object if property owners do not object. The committee on water works composed of Messrs. Morin. Knatvold and Lowe reported through Mr. Morin, that be had been in Hi. Paul and seen th** contractors, who seat by him au ordinance embodying a contract for a system of water work* It was, on motion unanimously received and read. 'Hie grantees named wert* E. W.

The proposed ordinance was fully cons,deled by sections and on motion was referred back to the committee and city attorney to make needed amendments, aud report to an adjourned meeting of the council to be held Wednesday night, when Mr. Bement was to be present. The street commissioner reported de-feetive sidewalks as follows: In front of block 17 on Clark street in front of J. F. Woblhuter and J no. (iislesson; on block 9on Broadway, front of Betcner's lumber yard and the rink; on block 2 South Pearl street, Morin s addition, front of Kolfson's house, on block 2 Hall's Addition front of Coyne’s lot and I). E. Dwyer’s lot on Broadway: block ll on Clark street in front of T. J. Sheehan’s and Jemima Sampson’s residences, in front of the Methodist church, College street. The report was adopted and the street commissioner was ordered to build new sidewalks according to the ordinances. A new sidewalk in front of Dr. Black-mer’s building, occupied by Weum & Berg, was ordered built in the same way. ’I he clerk read a statement of receipts and expenditures for the focal year, as follows: UK*KIITS HINCK AVRIL IHT.

Last Friday evening about 9 o’clock some reprobate, probably a tramp, entered the stable ol Kl wood Noble on tin; farm of George Chamberlain in Manchester, which he is occupying, stole a four-year-old mare owned by Mr. Noble and easily made his escape. , Ile took a bridle and halter but over- j looked a good saddle. The mare is a I bright bay, black mane and tail, slim \ built, high spirited and weighs about I 1,000 pounds. <). J. Taylor heard a man ! on horseback pass his place about lo I o’clock the same night, and he was doubtless the thief making his way to ! iowa. the favorite resort of horse-thieves. Sheriff Mitchell being informed. I promptly sent notices in every direction offering a reward of $25'for Mr. Noble and $200 on behalf of the state, and it is possible that this will be sufficient to secure his apprehension and the recovery of the animal. Experience has shown that there is little use in trying to otherwise track a horse-thief. « Big Flax Yields. As the raising of flax is likely to become an extensive branch of farming In this county we quote reports of flax yields from the Mankato Review and New Richland Star as follows, the first given being from the Xtar and the others from the Review: lf. J, Hanson sowed two bushels of flax on three acres of ground and threshed OO bushels. At the present price of flax this woald lie worth fWVY— $22 per acre. Geo. A. Bundy of Lincoln, Blue Earth county, on ii) acres of new breaking, raised 1,230 bushels of flax, which realized for him over $1,4UU. This is an average of |15j( per acre, or enough to pay for the land the first year. This season, as a general tiling it was claimed that new breaking flax was not as good as flax sown upon old ground. Mr. Blank, of N'icollet county, raised 90 bushels of flax from three acres of his best land. Mr, Blank had three acres in prime condition, which he sowed to flax, and he cultivated it carefully and well, and this extraordi nary yield of 32 bushels to the acre is the result. At the same rate as Mr Bundy, Mr. Blank’s yield would bring him $3*5.50 per acre. WEUM & BERG, Hoi** A ired I * for the following Leading Lilies of Ladies’ Fine Shoes!

Larke of Rogers City, Michigan, says the epidemic of last year in Brasque 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 Diarrhe a Remedy and says it succeeded where all other rem ed’ies 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, diarrhea iuid bloody fiux. 25 and 50 cent bottles ti sale by Parker & Briggs.

It would do the delegates good, too, to see a real live city. Trim Up the Trees.
