of certain railroad companies. There
are now on these lands a population of
about 15,000 people, with schools,

duty as an humble granger to express
my satisfaction with your candid expres

currency question. I have always ad

writing on the money question are in
clining my mind to think favorably of
your position. At least, you do not ex

it behooves every voter to be fully in

Farm Wagons a Specialty.
The wheelwright and blacksmith
shop of Messr*. Erickson, Peterson &
Co., corner of Fourth and Plum streets,
is an establishment of which Red Wing
has just cause to feel proud. Notwith
standing that it is an old and unttrac
tive building, it is the place where
twelve skillful mechanics, besides the
proprietors, earn livings for themselves
and families, and where a large number
of A. No. 1 farm wagons, spring wagons,
bob-sleds, sleighs, plows, harrows, etc.,
are annually manufactureh.
The proprietors are public spirited
men, anxious to build up a good repu
tation for their own work, and, in doing
this, to advance the interests of the city.
They require that every piece of ma
terial they use, whether of wood or iron,
shall be of the best, and that their work
man shall not only be skillful, but faith
ful and efficient.
They have an immense amount of
material on hand, and it seems hardly
possible that there should be sale for
the quantities of work they make, in
addition to what is turned out from
other similar establishments in the city.
But the truth is that all the shops here
are unable to supply the demand, and
a large number of wagons made elswhere
are still brought hither and sold.
Owing to the carefulness, enterprise
and business integrity of Messrs. Erick
son, Peterson & Co., Messrs. M. & J.
Kappell, Mr. H. J. Helmeke and our
Red Wing wagon makers generally, the
Red Wing made wagons have a higher
reputation than almost any other used
in this part of the country, and will
command readier sale and higher prises
wherever they are known. A large
share of the credit for this is due the
first mentioned firm, for they constantly
strive to improve upon their work, and
give their patrons an article fully worth
the money they ask for it.
One improvement introduced by them
is that of boiling the felloes of the
wheels in oil. This part of the wagon
is the first to have the paint rubbed oft*
by friction with the mud and dust, and
it is then exposed to the action of air
and water, and necessarily wears out
before the remainder of the vehicle.
To obviate this to a very considerable
extent, Messrs. Erickson, Peterson &
Co. boil the felloes of every wheel they
make in oil, and paint them afterwards.
When the paint wears off the oil still
makes the wood impervious to water
and renders it nearly twice as durable.
They have adopted several other im
provements in different kindt of work,
and their new patent attached to bob
sleds is especially worthy of attention.
We shall have occasion to refer to it,
however, when the sledding season
again rolls around. Besides making
new work these gentlemen do all kinds
of repairing in their line and blacksmith
ing generally to order. Among the
industries of Red Wing this shop occu
pies a conspicous position.
The Improved Howe Scales.
We notice that Mr. L. K. Bowdish,
traveling agent for Messrs. A. M. Gil
bert & Co., Chicago, principals of the
Western Department of the Brandon
Manufacturing Co., of Vermont, for the
manufacture of the Improved Howe
Scales, has placed a track platform scale
of that make in the warehouse of Mar
shall & Co., in this city, which attracts
very general admiration because of its
beauty of finish, accuracy, and exjtreme
sensitiveness. A pocket knife weighing
one ounce, laid upon the platform
brought the beam up readily, and a ten
cent scrip note upon the weight holder
at the end of the beam was sufficient to
keep it down when evenly balanced.
It must be remembered that the scales
were of capacity to weigh 3,600 lbs., in
order that the exactness and mobility
of the balance which can be affected
by such light articles may be properly
appreciated, and we do not believe
there is another pattern of scales in ex
istence which will weigh as closely.
The mechanism of these scales is dif
ferent and, in our opinion, very superior
to that of the Fairbank scales. Instead
of 19 pivots or bearings, these have only
14, and instead of the check-rods of the
latter, which tend to cramp the move
ments of the machinery and prevent
elasticity, the bed of the Howe is kept in
place by chilled iron balls and adjustable
bearings. The result is that any weight
placed upon the platform is immediately
equalized upon all portions of the scales.
The Howe scales have taken the first
premiums at all fairs when they have
come in competition with those of other
makes the Fairbanks, in every instance,
being adjudged inferior and the manu
facturers of the Howe, The Brandon
Manufacturing Co., of Vt. have a stand
ing challenge to the Fairbanks Com
pany, offering to give up their seven
gold medals to the latter, if they fail
to prove the superiority of the Howe
over the Fairbanks in a impartial public
test. The Fairbanks Company do not
accept this challenge, although their
agents are in the habit of claiming for
their scales that they are the United
States legal standard a claim which
is obviously false, as scales are merely
balances, and there can be no such thing
as a standard balance. The govern
ment has standard weights and meas
ure*., but no standard balances.
Besides the scale in Marshall & Co's
warehouse, the Howe Co. have a similar
scale in the Red Wing Mills, which
gives entire satisfaction and we are
told that the Messrs. Sheldon have two
or three of the old unimproved Howe
pattern, which have been in use from
twelve to sixteen years, and that al
though they have been abused and rough
ly handled, they are still good and cor
rect. Mr. R. M. Flautt, late of St.
Paul, but now of the Memphis stock
yard writes of the Howe scales as fol
"Gents:—I have used your scales for
several months and they have given en
tire satisfaction. since I rented my
yard to Mr. Hankey he has written to
me that they are the best he has ever
Messrs. Ridwell & Co., butchers, of
Minneapolis writes as follows: under
da^e of February 21st, 187C:
"The scales you put in for us have
proved perfect in every way. We have
weighed four thousand loads for other
parties besides our own weighing, and
they have not been out of order in the
least and are considered by both buy
ers and sellers the most correct scales
there are in the city."
In the same letter is the following
"I, also, have had one of your scales
in use in my stock yard and on the mar
ket here, for ten years, and it is as per
fect today as when first put up. I
should think it would last a man's life
time. A. HEDDERLY."
Besides their platform scales, the
Howe company make all sorts of porta
ble counter, grocers and druggists
scales, in all of which the "pivots" are
covered in the frame and protected
against dust and dirt, and they are not,
therefore, liable to get out of order.
The Company have made fifty scales,
representing as many different classes,
to be exhibited at the great Centennial
exposition, and it is stated that they now
have orders for 2,500 scales, 400 of
which are to go to South America and
500 to Russia.
Messrs. Nelson & Peterson are sole
agents for the sale of these scales in Red
Wing, and they have a handsome lot on
