KC Huntington, Windom Reporter: Wirtdom is recognized every*harp as a prosperous town. Since saloons were driven out our prosperity has increased. \\ e didn’t realize our prosperity nor Hie resources of Hie people till the nuisance was abated. Business failures arc seldom known, and never because of a want of business The country is settling rapidly, and land is rising in value. AII this without saloons. Isn’t its condition good enough ? Blasdell tv Bonney. Fairmont News; Every now aud then we run across some J).(per which has been changing from hand to hand in h desperate struggle to keep atop of water, that was started by some man, with little or no knowledge of the business, who had a little spare money to invest, aud thought there was a gold mine somewhere concealed in the average country print ahop. The result is always Hie same but the process is interesting to watch nevertheless. J. K. Putnam, (irauite Falls Tribune: Newspapers are considered paying investments hy many besides those who know. Many, ambitious to rise in Hie world, purchase out/Its and Dud some small town fora starter and expect later to move the plant to Gotham and revolutionize the world with mod em ideas. If told that the venture Would not lie a paying investment they would not heed the counsel hut attribute the advice to jealousy. Deluded mortals are we. J. ll Manchester, Kake Benton News: Legally, the Minnesota river is navigable at St. Deter and above there. I Tactically, it is not, and never will he navigable by any craft larger than a small boy on a slab. When a stream is legally navigable, no bridge can be built across it which may hinder its free and unobstructed navigation by boats In order to avoid the expense of draw bridges, the county commissioners of Nicollet county have asked Hist the river at that place aud above there be declared unnavigable. J K Putnam. Granite Falks Tribune: Every municipality should own and operate its plants for lighting and waterworks. No franchise should he given to a corporation or individual tor a term of years or otherwise. The system is all wrong and fast becoming not only unpopular but fatal to the interests of the town which adopts the franchise system. The common people have but little to say about the expense of such public benefactions but Hie utility of managing them and Hie best service is ignored if money can be saved the corporation thereby. By all means own w hat you use if practicable and never waive your rights to vote oil its management. Dr. B. M. Dodds, Northwestern Horseman: The check, when humanely used, is one of the most useful paits of the harness in controlling a high spirited or unsafe horse, but Hie center check should never he used except on race horses, horses on parade, or on short drives, if the animal is kind, as it is a cruel, barbarous invention, (it only for wicked, unsafe horses. Though the check is so useful at times, no one of any humanity or judgment, will drive the horse any distance with it on when checked high. The highbred horse that seems so unsafe when he hist starts off, can lie safely given lits head atter going a ten’ miles, aud he should be. The merciful man is merciful to his beast, and no horse should tie them .iii Sandals on subjects that would be of real interest, id real im-poriaiu e They could say to this niilt-istei "We are engaged in business dm mg the week. \\ bile we are winking at our trades and professions we wan! iou to study and on Sunday tell us what you have found out." Let such a minister take a series of serin uh. the history, the philosophy of the art and the genius of the Breeks. Let Dim tell of Hie wondrous metaphysics, myths and religions of India and Lg.vpt. Let him make Ids congregation conversant with Hie philosophies of the world, with the great thinkers, ! Hie great poets, Hie great artists, the great actors, the great orators, tile great inventors, Hie captains of industry, the soldiers of progress. Let them have a •Sunday school in which the children shall he made acquainted with tile facts of nature, with botany, entomology, something of geology and a»tio-nouiy. Let them be made familiar with tile greatest of poems, the iinest paragraphs of literature, with stories of the heroic, tin* self-denying and generous. Now, it seems to me that such a congregation in a few years would become the most intelligent people in the United States. that some new looms are about to be added to the mills. Sixteen years ago a Norwegian named Brekkle came to Faribault county. Ile secured a farm, on which he made considerable money.

The St. Peter Tribune speaking of the boom that is being worked up for Bed Lake Reservation lands says; No' thank you—we have no desire to ‘Git on Boa'd’ we were there about ten \ ears ago and invested, with several ot hers, in a number of town lots in St Hilaire the town la sttyi there, about as large as when we first it, the money went where Hie woodbine twineth At that time it was the most forlorn country we ever saw it was then ex ported that the lied Lake pine land would be opened for settlement, and we could ail get a slice of the big tall Pines, forgetting that the government don’t give away pine stumpage, but sells it to the highest bidder. So far as ‘‘plenty of limber for fuel and build mg purposes,’’ is assuming a good deal as there is no timber except scrub timber that skirts the banks of Red river ami if you expect to get much valuu hie farming land on the reservation you will he disappointed seven times out of ten. The only valuable laud is that on Red I.ake. w here the tall pines stand, and that the government will sell to the highest bidder. So, if you have any notion that you are going to reap a fortune, you might just as well free your minds of that notion, and you will not he disappointed—we havt bet ii there. Our Lakes Will Re Restored. rile Pioneer Press believes that Hie long drouth is about to end, and that the result w ill be that the lakes of the northwest will again be restored to their former state of fullness, purity and attractiveness. It says there is one law that is constant and that is the law of averages. H e have had a long succession of dry seasons, broken by years of heavy precipitation. It is as certain as anything can he that these will be followed by a succession of wet seasons. We shall not lose our lakes. They will all drink in again from the kindly skies the copious claughts that will refill their howls. We may not expect to see them full again to the brim. For w e have broken op around them the virgin sod which served as a thatched roof, down which Hie rains poured Into them from all their sloping basins. But they will reach the level which is normal to tin* conditions of cultivated country, and 1 hey will rise and fall through the ages to corno with the oscillations of UR annual rainfall. 'N nme bago City Press-Ne wk Freund bas been in a towering rage since the jury disagreed, lie roasts “the twelve good man aud true" who tried him to a mush, bitterly denouncing them as poltroons. Jacob, like Dr. Jerky 11 and •Mr. Hyde, has two tides, and the Hyde side ut the mail is now in the ascendency. To the officers having him in charge he imparted the information that he would spend all his means ami the balance of ins life in hounding the men now prosecuting him. To make Ut a slang but expressive phrase, • *,rei,rill had better "pull down his vest, ’ as he is by no manner of means ; out OI the woods. Owatonna Journal; Over in the' little tow ii of Hayfield, Dodge county which is by the way a “dry town, ' they have been hat mg a great deal of trouble with illicit liquor selling, and there were several anesis made anti the parties tried at the term of the district court held by judge Buck ham at Mantorvilie this week. As a result oi the trial sheriff Joel Tucker ami deputy, of Dodge county, came o\ ei to Owatonna on W ednesday with three men who will serve out their sentences in the Steele county jail Ihe men were indicted for selling liquor in less than five gallon quantities without having taken out the necessary license required by state law Hie three men were Prank Goss, druggist; Dr. lf. o.

Great Benefit of I lie Draining Wet or Dry Seasons. An exchange quotes a practical farmer as follows: atli a farmer, aud I have found that drain tile don't always drain hat is, I have found that a well laid’ drain tile will bring moisture to the surface of the ground as well as take it away. I have put in a great deal of tile in the hist year or two, ami during the past dry season we could readily locate our tile drains from the healthy condition of tile crops along the line ut the drains as compared with those on md not tiled. J have found from actual experience that tiling is as profitable in seasons of drought as in wet seasons. When I began lo lay my drains Ihe neighboring fanners were inclined lo make sport ol the iu\e,t meat. Now, atter a season or two, th© laugh is on the other side, and tTiej are all studying up the question. Some oi them have already begun to tile then lands, and the balance will follow, for the results have positively demonstrated that well laid tiling will pay for itself in a season or two from Hie increase in crops alone.
