Promised to Dwellers in the Sunny Southern Land—All Who Have Settled in Central Alabama Are Prosperous and Glad—Plenty Yet of Good Openings and Bargains for New Settlers—All Invited to Join Excursion to Alabama Next Tuesday. The following extracts from private letters concerning the wonderful central Alabama country and climate cannot fail to prove of general interest: I wish hereby to call your attention to the South, and especially to the Thorsby colony, which is located in tile center of the state of Alabama, in Chilton county. The said colony has a beautiful location,good and wholesome water, good soil suitable for general farming as well as for fruit growing. The weather conditions are excellent. I have resided here about one year at this writing, and I thus have experience of the temperature of the different seasons. The weather here suits me much better than the weather in the North. We have always cold nights here which make it possible for a man to rest good and get renewed strength. No one need to he afraid coming here on account of the heat in the summer, as there is no reason to dread the heat of this climate. Therefore I advise all who wish to move to a healthier climate to come to Thorsby as here are great advantages which are not to be had at many other places. The Concordia Land and Improvement Association provides work for all those that buy land here, hut no one except land buyers gets work. Since I came here I have worked for the association as carpenter 195 days, and have received as wages 82,00 per day. and I have now all the carpenter work I can attend to. At this writing there has been erected here one large modern hotel, sawmill, blacksmith and wagon shop and three store buildings. Several other houses have also been built. A commodious school house will be completed in September next, when public school will be commenced. As yet, no church organization has been effected, but preparatory work is being done by Rev. Jno. E. Iledberg, who has moved from Minnesota to Thorsby on account of his health. Services and Sunday school are conducted every Sunday, and before the close of the year a congregation will be organized here. There would he much more to say about the advantages the Thorsby colony offers land buyers, but I will only add that what I have written is true and I therefore say to all: Come and see for yourself. Nels Johnson. Thorsby, Ala., Aug. 9,1896. As I have now been here four months and during that time have seen and experienced the weather and the climate, I wish to let people know that I have found it to he very good. The water in wells and springs is also good and is obtained in the colony at a depth from 20 to 30 feet. The soil is very productive and easily worked.

The association planted two acres of grapes and I planted one acre myself. The association bought these grape vines from New York state, and they were planted litre in the latter part of April, 1896, and today I can count as many as two to six hunches of grapes on many of the 1,500 vines now nourishing in my vineyard.^ This is not, however, the only evidence of the vigorous vegetation here. The real object I have with this writing is to tell about my happy experience of this wonderful climate. I came here for my health, on the advice of physicians, and the result is I am now’ altogether free from a consumptive disease of my bronchial tubes or lungs. I am now so strong and healthy that I ain able to take care of my own vineyard. I have not used a drop of medicine since I came here. I attribute my wonderful recovery to this mild and healthy climate alone. Emanuel Rost rom. Thorsby, Ala, Aug. IO, 1896. I have concluded to write about my trip from the North to the South in December, 1895. I was well pleased when I first came here, to Thorsby, Ala., hut not being in the habit of going off Hie handle on the first impulse I have waited until I had given the land and climate a thorough trial before I became too enthusiastic. I had one of the hest 160 acre farms in North Dakota, hut running behind every year. I concluded to sell and go south to find me a more suitable place. I traveled over Missouri, Tennessee and Alabama down to the Gulf of Mexico, but as I couldn’t find any place suitable, on account of being too low, I came hack here to Thorsby, Chilton county, Ala, and bought 20 acres of the Concordia Land and Improvement Association, IO acres of which I am going to plant grapes on. I have this summer seen wonders in the way of grapes. I have lived in an old native house. Among a lot of other fruit trees one grape vine 3 years old which produced 50 pounds. Picked the 24th of June, quotations at Pittsburg at the same time GOc to 70c a 10-pound basket; cost of basket to Ic; so I am more than satisfied with results. Here is a good healthy climate. We have a boy seven years old, who has been sick for the last five years, and now he is as strong and healthy as anyone. So all who read this will do themselves a favor by coming here too and see how pleasant it is for us. A. L. Wambem. Thorsby, Ala, Aug. 25, 1896. Truly the region described in these letters is well deserving the consideration of those desiring to change their locations, and being satisfied of this, Gillrup & Gilbert became interested I in the Concordia association, and feel entire confidence in recommending it to their friends and the public in general. And they cordially invite all interested to join their excursion next Tuesday, Dec. 15, in a visit to the colony, and promise that all who go will greatly enjoy the trip and profit by going there.

I The Freeborn county teachers association I ‘ta first meeting of this school year st the | court room Dec. 5th, where a very interesting I And practical program was carried out. The number lu attendance exceeded one hundred. many of whom came from distant parts of the county, plainly showing the Interest which our teachers are taking in their work. The meeting was opened by a paper entitled “Tim First Week of School.” by Miss Anna Mid-thun, in which she gave many valuable sugges-dons regarding the trying task of starting the school right. An interesting discussion by the teachers followed, to which Supt. Olson added some of his practical ideas. “Music In the Rural School.” was (be subject of a pleasing paper by Miss Maude Baer. The discussion on this was opened by Misses Kllick-son and Barlow. Miss Young, of the college, spoke Interestingly on the uplifting and ennobling Influence of music, and especially urgeo the learning of patriotic songs in our schools. Principal Barnes of Alden ably bandied “That Proverbial Bad Boy” in a carefully prepared paper. Numerous teachers gave their opinions regarding this unfortunate person. Dr. Marvin kindly favored the association with an excellent talk on this subject. He believes in kind treatment; also keeping the sentiment of the school on the teacher s side and educating that sentiment to as high a plane as possible. All agreed that the “Baa Boy” must be made to respect the right. If kind and gentle means are unavailing severe methods must be employed. Some minor details were then acted upon, and the meeting adjourned until the first Saturday in January.    Franc    es    Hill. Sec. pro tem. riany Cannot Vote at the Spring Election. Attorney general Childs has given an opinion on the status of foreign-born voters under the constitutional amendment requiring full citizenship papers. Ile says: There is no question bat that second papers will be required of all voters now holding first papers, before they can vote again; and there is no question that these papers must be secured three months before election. This applies to the voters of all cities, villages and townships which hold elections the coming spring. The second papers must be had three months before the voter can vote. s UBM Ste.
