plete. Messrs. Johnston, Holloway &
Co., 602 Arch street, Philadelphia, are
the agents for the article, and when our
Philadelphia friends return from Cape
May, they should certainly procure some
of it. We know of no such article ex
tant for the hair, and thus speak in
such decided and emphatic terms.—

—We have been inquireI of: Why
our chickens are so plump, large and
healthy and such good layers. We
know no other reason than that they
have been fed, during the winter, with
scraps from the table, besides their al
lowance of corn, and have constantly
had access to salt, lime, ashes and
water. We believe it essential for their
health that chickens should have vege
table acids and salt, and that a supply
of lime is essential for the production
of eggs. Our flock has had no unusual
care during the winter, and we have
lost none but one killed by a dog.
Ours are of common breed, but few of
fancy breeds are larger or better layers.
—Why not run an omnibus from the
corner of Broad and Third streets to
the Southern addition, three or four
times a day? Stopping, say, at the
school house on South Park street?
Also, up Third street to its termiuus
and oyer in the Eastern part of the city?
It would be a great public convenience
to have stages run over all these routes,
and property owners in the several sec
tions mentioned would be gainers by
them to an extent, we believe, which
would justify them in contributing the
funds necessary to their establishment.
It is only a few years ago that public
omnibuses were used in all our large
cities, and Red Wing could afford to
put up with them until it grows big
enough and rich enough to build street
—Quite an exciting runaway occur
red on Thursday last. A team belong
ng to Mr. Hermann was being driven
along Main street, and when in front of
Messrs. Sterling & Co.'s, the steam
whistle of that establishment blew for
one o'clock. This started them and
they ran up to Bush street. Turning
towards the river, they ran over the
corner of the sidewalk in front cf Cheap
Charley's, and the driver, an employee
of Mr. Herman, was there thrown off,
The team kept on towards the river and
succeeded in leaving the load and hind
wheels of the wagon. They then got
on to the railroad track and ran along
it to the open bridge in front of the
steam saw mill. There they fell be
tween the ties and trapped themselves,
and strange to say were rescued with
—SCARCITY OF MONEY.—There is
no doubt but the present condition of
all kinds of business and industry is
fearfully depressed, and it behooves ev
ery family to look carefully to their ex
penses. Winter is coming on when
children are liable to Croup, Whooping
Cough, etc. Coughs and 'Colds will
prevail everywhere, and Consumption,
with other throat and lung diseases,
will carry off many.—These diseases
should not be neglected. Doctor's bills
are expensive, and we would advise our
people to use Boschee's German Syrup.
It never has.failed. One bottle at 75
cents will keep your whole family well
during the winter. Two doses will re

crowded house from the start. Singing

Cough No More.
There need be no Coughs or Colds
where Dr. King's New Discovery for
Consumption is used. The most severe
cases of Croup, Hoarseness, Pain in the
Chest, Bleeding of the Lungs yield to
its wonderful power almost instantly.
A few doses will invariably cure the
worst cough or cold. For Asthma and
Bronchitis it is a perfect specific. Con
sumptives and Cough worn patients
never fail to find relief in this great dis
covery. We would advise any one tired
of experimenting with physicians pre
scriptions or quack medicines to drop
them at once and use Dr. King's New
Discovery. Give it a trial. Regular
size $1.00. Trial bottles free. For
sale by all druggists.
Mr. Wm. Webster's New Resi
On the northwest corner of Fourth
and Dakota street, is a handsome brick
residence owned and occupied by Mr.
Wm. Webster. It occupies a hand
some site, overlooking the business por
tion of the city, but is approached by
an easy grade, and is within a few min
utes walk of the business center. It is
built of brick and is two stories high,
with,high ceilings in both stories and a
high airy cellar under the entire build*
It fronts on Fourth street 24 feet,
and a flight of four or five stone steps
leads into a portico 7x8 feet, from which
yau enter the house through handsome
double doors, which open into a hall
8x16 feet. From this a wide and easy
flight of stairs leads to the second story
or turning to the right, through a wide
doorway, you may pass from it into a
handsome parlor 15x16 feet. The
front windows of this open on to an
iron balcony 14 feet long by 4 feet in
Beyond the depth of the parlor and
hall (16 feet,) the width of the house
is increased, by angles projecting on
both sides, to about 33 feet. This gives
space for two rooms 15x16 feet in this
portion. The easternmost of these,
that in the rear of the parlor and con
nected with it by a wide doorway, is
the sitting room. This has a large and
handsome bay window opening toward
Dakota street, from which a fine view
of the city is obtainable. The westerly
room, that in the rear of the hall and
stairway, is a bedroom. Ingress to it
is had from the hall and from the sit
In the rear of these rooms the house
is again contracted in width to 25 feet,
and this part contains a dining room
15x18 feet and aback or private stair
way to the second floor, entrance to
which is from the dining room. On the
Dakota street side, a door leads from
this room on to a porch 6 feet wide,
extending from the angle formed by the
wall of the sitting room portion of the
building, back the length of this nar
rower portion and around the corner in
its rear to the kitchen. This latter is
14x14 feet, and is in the rear of the
west side of the dining room and of the
back stairway above mentioned. A door
from the dining room opens into it and
it is also accessible from the porch on
the east side.
The west side of this portion of the
building in which the kitchen is situated
projects beyond the line of the dining
room portion about 12 feet, and affords
room for a pantry*8x12 feet and a
wash room 12x12, both of which have
doors opening from the west side of the
kitchen. In the rear of these and par
tially of the kitchen is a wood house
14x24 feet. This is of only one story
in height. As will be observed the
central portion of the building, for the
space of 16 feet, is some eight feet
wider than the front and rear. Viewed
either from Fourth or Dakota street,
this projection adds greatly to the ap
pearance of the building, and especially
so as the roof and general finish is made
conformable with this irregularity of
shape of the ground plan.
The second floor is divided into rooms
similar to those below, except that pas
sage ways conduct to the .several apart
ments and render them more private.
A large bath room occupies the space
over the pantry and washroom. The
cellar is also divided into apartments
which are finished appropriately for the
several uses for which they are designed.
A peculiar feature about this building,
as about that of Mr. T. B. Sheldon's,
is the abundance of closets, cupboards
and wardrobes. One or more of these
are in every room except the parlor, we
believe, and the two large china cup
boards in the dining room are especially
In the principal rooms there are open
grate fireplaces and marble mantles, all
the bedrooms are furnished with mar
ble-topped washstands, and hot and
cold water facets. The kitchen con
tains an excellent cooking range, hot
water reservoir, force pump, &c, and
a large cistern furnishes a supply of
water, from which it is pumped as
wanted into a tank in the upper story,
whence it is conducted by pipes into the
sayeral apartments. There are also
gas fittings in all the rooms, placed so
as to be convenient for any purpose,
and the patterns thereof in accordance
with the finish and furniture of the sev
The work upon this building is all of
the very best, and the inside wood work,
plastering, &c, can hardly be excelled.
The stucco-work in the principal rooms
and hall is beantiful in design and exe
cution, and the doers and windows
move easily and noiselessly, The work
men engaged upon it were as follows:
S. W. Chaffee, contractor and builder
G. A. Carlson, stone-mason Woodleigh
and Marble, bricklayers W. H. Brink,
plasterer George Hudson, plumber
W. E Hawkins and Wm. Chaffee,
painters C. Betcher the tin work.
The window frames and sash and door
frames and doors, balusters, mouldings,
&c, were from C. Betcher's planing
mill of this city.
ROBCOE, Feb. 13th, 1877.
Ed. of Advance-.—It has been a long
time since I saw anything in your col
umns from our town. Now, it is not
because the hard times have so pressed
upon us that we did not dare to squeal,
but because of sheer neglect to write.
But now we have resolved to be heard
from, and we hope that this will not be
the last time.
Notwithstanding the pressure of the
times, improvements are being steadily
and constantly made here. Mr. C.
Rogers made up his mind less than a
week ago to build him a home, and
this morning I cansee the smoke of his
fire towering from the chimney of that
home. Last fall he built his black
smith shop, and has now put up this
house. It is sided with building paper
and furnished with furniture of his
own and his neighbor's make.
Mr. Schmeebeli is kept busy by his
neighbors, for whose benefit he is con
stantly exercising his ingenuity. The
farmers are taking things easy. They
repair to Mr. Bucholz's store to buy
necessary articles and enjoy social
chats, and return home satisfied with
the labors of the day. If there are
horses to be shod, Mr. Hepner is al.
ways ready to shoe alltthat are brought
to him in the best manner.
Our religious institutions are doing
well, though we cannot boaBt of many
conversions. There is general good
feeling and considerable interest is
manifested in the gatherings. The
Sabbath school especially is largely at
tended, and the lessons seem to be dili
gently studied, both teachers and schol
ars giving close attention. Mr. Holmes,
who left us about a year ago, is missed
in the singing, which he used to lead.
Yours, &c. I. C.
