The Guy finances. The finance committee of the City Council makes a report at the regular meeting Friday evening. Tax Levy of fifteen Nills made other in portent business. Amount will probably be increased next year owing to the fact that a portion of the City now have the advantage of the sewer. Neither do we take into consideration the tax that May be raised by special sewerage assessment As we have not any data from which to estimate the same. Respectfully submitted s. Strauss. Finance w. A. Morin f com. Albert Lea Minn., sept. 24, 1897. The Council met in regular session Friday evening with All the members excepting Ald. Wohlhuter present. After the Reading of the minutes the members of the finance committee made the following report report of finance comm1 t fee. Gentlemen of the Council your committee on finance beg Leate to make the following report. After thorough investigation we find that it will be absolutely necessary to make a tax Levy of fifteen Mills Aud while we realize that it is exceedingly High still under the circumstances with this Large assessment outstanding orders on april 1st, 1899, will in All probability be larger than they were on april 1st, 1897. This stat of affairs can be partly accounted for by the Money expended this year in the construction of the sewer and while we realize that the Council have been economical in regard to All general expenses we feel that in the future More Economy must be practice in order that our present source of Revenue May furnish sufficient funds to meet All future expenses. We consider the sewer a permanent improvement and one absolutely needed to insure the health of the City but we recommend that no further extensions be made except those that have already been ordered unless the property owners benefited by the sewerage shall arrange for the payment of the same. We further realize that the general expenses of the City have been very reasonable and we cannot indicate any particular item where they could be reduced unless the Council determine to practically Cut off nearly All Street improvements. In making this estimate we have based our receipts from the City waterworks upon last years earnings.

Society is threatened with dissolution. Some of its members have declared that Waltzing is no longer a Nice or even fashionable. There is too much exertion about the practice it it partakes too much of the nature of a Romp about it there is not that voluptuous languor that refined repose so essential to the tastes of a High Grade social Circle. There is entirely too much latitude for indiscriminate hugging and squeezing it is too conducive to sweat and grizzly hair Boston has set the Pace Boston always does Excel in everything from baked Beans to excessive refinement. The Reform is coming Westward Aud soon it will he a stamp of vulgarity to indulge in a pastime that has been popular for Democrat. Good advice. Adjourned meeting. The Council held an adjourned meeting monday night for the purpose of transacting general business and aldermen Jorgensen Brundin Wolhuter Gilbert and Skinner were present. The sewer committee asked for further time to report on the sewer assessment role and the request was granted.

A great Deal of Grain left in the Shock is seriously damaged by the Rains and hot weather that immediately followed the outside being bleached that inside the shocks sprouted and discoloured As if bin Burnt. It is More economical and the element of damage is eliminated where Grain is stacked for the expense of stacking is More than compensated for by the improved condition of the Grain. Every Bushel of wheat that has lain in the shocks since Harvest and there Are hundreds of acres has been damaged Twenty five per cent of its value by the elements and by the loss of the Benefit that accrues from the sweating process it undergoes when stacked.
