same distance, \uz a careful observa
tion of the whole ^n^th and breadth of
the city sterns a& tint it has improved
and quite rapidly at that within the
past few years. Some years since the
ground just south of the public school
building was styled "the prairie." Nov:
the same ground is covered with as tine
residences and as prettily laid out and
well cultivated grounds as can be found
in any city. In point of beauty we
have bat one city pn the upper Missis
sippi that will compare with Lake City
and that is Winona. There are several
points of difference, however, between
the two eities. "Winona is considerably
given to manufacturies of various kinds
while Lake City is not troubled much
that way. There are several good ones
however among which may be mention
cd the foundry and machine shop of
Mr. Gillett. The wagon shop of Dough
ty & Neal as well as several more
that might be mentioned. The mer
chants generally seem to be having a
very good trade though it strikes us
that we did hear some of than say that
money was scarce. The large mill near
the depot is not running at present*
They intend to start immediately after
harvest we were informed. We almost
torgot to mention one large job ot work
being done here this season and that is
the new Catholic church. The founda
tion is completed and the corner stone
was laid on the 4th inst and constituted
the only 4th of July celebration we in
dulged in this year. The building
when completed will be a splendid
structure, we were informed that the
she of it is oO by 100 feet long and the
foundation certainly looks as though it
was put there to stay. In circulating
around town a few days since we dis
cover a tine piece of work that was new
to us in the shape of Mr. William Bal
lard's sail boat. It is a real beauty.
Mr. Ballard was in the act of loading
her on to a coupie of drays preparatory
to launching her in the lake. Her di
mensions as given by Mr. B. are as fol
lows: length of keel 23 feet, width of
beam 9 feet 4 inches, depth of hold 2
feet 10 inches, strongly built of oak
from stem to stern, carries 51 yards of
canvas in main sail, and 30 yards in jib
and is staunch and steady enough to
cro«s the Atlantic, in the hands of a
good sailor. Mr. Ballard informed us,
in response to our inquiry, that the
/raft is worth 250 dollars. Our atten
tion was called to a very ingenious fire
escape, for which the inventor, Mr.
Jlenry K. Warner, of Lake City, has
received letters patent. It consists of
a rope ladder so arranged that it can be
coiled in au ordinary, lounge or sofa,
(made for that purpose we mean, but
of the ordinary size) and by raising the
cover of the lounge the ladder ^is ready
to be thrown out of the window. It in
fastened to two hooks on the inside of
the sofa, and corresponds at the point
where it leaves the window sill with
the width of the window, thereby doing
away with any possible danger of
Ineakage or getting loo&e. The'adder
fiom the point where it is firmly fas.
t°ned to the sofa, narrows gradually to
about 8 Inches, which is the width
from thence to the ground. The rounds
a of tough hard wood, and are placed
about 1£ inches apart, and the fastening
of each is such that they can not possi
bly get loose. In fact, the whole thing
is perfect, and something that is des
tined to come into unhersal use in our
laige hotels. We examined it very
iaiefully and could not help but think
how easily we could make our way out
of a sixth story window with a ladder
of *hat kind, no matter how laige afire
.s on nand. To make the concern
still better, the materials of which it is
made are to be saturated with non.
combustible chemicals. Mr. Warner
Uesenes a great deal of credit for his
invention, for the most obtuse person
can see at a glance that it is destined
to save a great many lives in future.
But as we have spun this letter out to
an intolerable length, we will close and
write you again some time in future.
The second or main floor, which is
level with the street, has two large
•how windows in front, each composed
of a single plate of best French plate
glass. The doors and the transom have,
also, a single light of glass in each and
the front is painted a dark color and or
namented with gilt striping. This story
has, also, two windows and a door in
the rear end, and the room is thus made
very light and cheerful. The walls and
ceiling are finished with a perfectly
white "putty-coating" of plaster, and
the floor is of the very best lumber and
made perfectly smooth and level. On
the east side of this room, Messrs. R.
& S. have placed two very handsome
cases for displaying silverware. These
are finished on the outside in imitation
of ebony and have gold stripes and are
lined inside with dark velvet. Each
case has three doors, formed of a single
pane of plate glass each. These raise
up to afford ingress to the case. In the
front on this side is Mr. Chapman's
work bench, where jewelry, watches,
&c, are repaired, and between this
bench and the end of the front case
above mentioned is the clock which reg
ulates the time of Red Wing.
On the west side are the shelves for
books and stationery, all covered wifh
glass doors and painted in haimony
with the cases on the east side. The
show window on thi- side and the
place above the shelving is to be devoted
to a display of picture1-, of which they
ha\e a superb collection.
The Gilt Edged Store.
Messrs. Roseboom & Sheldon, on
Third street west of Bush, deserve
more than a brief mention, for their
store is really a credit to the city. The
building is a substantial one, being a
brick veneered frame, on heavy stone
foundations. Its size is 24x50 and
three stories high the lower story, how
ever, is below the grade of the street
and on a level with the ground in the
rear. It is, however, well lighted with
two windows in the rear and two in
front, and connected with it, under the
sidewalk, is a vault the ceiling of which
is arehed. The front windows of this
story extend about two feet above the
side-walk and are guarded by handsome
iron gratings, nicely finished, painted
black and stripe 1 with gilt. The room
is finished off tastefully and is appro
priated by Messrs. Roseboom & Sheldon
to their coarser varieties of stationery,
wall-paper, window curtains and hang,
ings and other heavy articles in the house
keeping line, also, baby carriages, sleds,
&c. The vault under the sidewalk is
used to store rags and waste paper and
for keeping fuel.

In the middle of this room is a, double
counter, holding eight 1 irge show cases
full of fancy articles in the silverware,
jewelry and stationeiy line. Messr.
R. & S. intend to fill up the space on
the fiont end of this with a small show
case, and en the floor under the fiont
they have «i splendid reflecting show

men's place will be between these coun

nient for them to wait upon customer'*.
In the rear end of this room Is the
counting-room, with the large safe, dosk«,
The upper story, which is also a well
lighted, handsome room, is devoted to a
large display of tovs, fancy goods, pic
ture frames, mouldings, etc. It is, also,
provided with counters and fitted up for
a sales-room for the lines of article*
mentioned as contained in it, and the
basement is arranged as a salesroom for
the classes of goods to which it is ap
propriated. The entrances to the ise
ment and upper story are by means of
wide and convenient stairways.
Messrs. R. & S. have spread a hand
some wide awning in front of the build
ing and besides the flat sign over the
door, they have hung out an enormous
book from the second story, which is a
distinguishing mark of the ''gilt-edged"

It is always a pleasure to recommend
a good article, especially one that so
admirably sustains all recommendations
as does Dr. King's New Discovery for
Consumption, Coughs and Colds, being
perfectly reliable in every respect. A
severe cough or a neglected cold yields
readily to its wonderful power. By it
the worst cases of Asthma and Bron
