Jack Min Republic: The Rev. X. JI. Foot, pastor of tin lending church iii St. James, says: •'In all toy experience as a preacher I have »eidoni lived lo a place where the newspaper men vtere church goer* I Pave known a areal Many of them—royal good fellow* too, but on Buuday they would rallier Trad (heir exchanges ihan go to church.” The Itev. l oot is right. A great many people think if un easy matter to prepare ten or fifteen columns of manuscript each week, but should some of our readers try it in their offices with Ave or six workmen behind you, some of them constantly consulting you in regard to Wuk and from four to six men un hour transacting business, talking politic*, religion or gossip, we do not think you would prepare much matter for your paper and certainly would not do it very intelligently. You wutdd ve-y glad Sunday .should come so you could take your beloved exchanges, retire to your private room w here none enter and spend the day visiting with the boys, clipping and commenting on their words of wisdom and wit. There may be pleasanter tilings to do on .Sunday, but we have thus tar failed to find it, and there in that solitude come the best thoughts of the week. We know of but few papers that do not exeit as much influence over its readers as do the average preachers and many of them are much more outspoken in the cause <d right, justice, morality and religion than the average preacher and ten times the hearers, so do not get the idea that editors are w icked and depraved because they are not at church. [’he preacher has the week to prepare tor Ins .Sunday work and the editor has Sunday to prepare tor his weeks work. cions enough bot to mislead those I whose patronage they solicit; wheie-I fore. the whole great aggregation will , welcoming in Albert Lea on Jnlv • ,k3 to the invariable rule everywhere, and as even railroad contract for transportation will alone conclusive!* trove.

The Lutheran Theoioigcal Seminary, Northwood Index; i ll# trustees of Luther academy at Albeit JLt’ii have played a ii ump card in the mailer of securing tor their city the location of the theological seminary formerly situated ai Robbinsdale Mum. They have offered to the synod to turn over to that body, for use as a theological seminary, the grounds and buildings now owned by the academy a property easily worth fifteen thousand dollars. Chicago, Minneapolis, St. Baul and one or two other citita have been working to secure the prize hut it is generally thought thai lim Albert Lea proposition, which is of very recent date and vastly more generous than any thus far made, will he looked upon with special favor. The I synod trustees and council before which the matter w ill come up met at Minneapolis yesterday, Rev. T. A. Tor-gerson and J. B. Thompson being the members from Worth county, lf the offer is accepted, it is the intention to erect a school building only for the use of the academy and to discontinue the hoarding arrangements, letting the students seek accommodations among the people of the town. Kine 01 years ago there was a time a orth wood had a reasonably good chance to secure the location of the academy here.
