Your early attention is called to the road work required to make our city accessible to the country trade aud business. The total lack of protection against fire also demands immediate consideration.

I admonish you to nourish it tenderly, to be mindful of its youth and inexperience, and to inculcate those precepts of prudence and economy necessary to insure a healthful, lasting prosperity.

Mr McNiel, an extensive coal miner near Oskaloosa, Iowa, was here last week looking the ground over for the sale of the product of his mine here e understand he has completed ar-rcngements by which he can deliver coal at this point by the car load at §3 75 per ton. The one thing that Albert Lea wants to make her a manufacturing place of some importance is cheap fuel, and this matter seems to be upon the point of solution. For instance, with coal at §3 75 per ton, a steam grist mill ought to be a paying investment here.
