The Independent nominating county
convention will be held at the Court
House in this city next Saturday. From
all we can hear the representation will
be very lnrge. and the contest for some
of the offices will be quite spirited.
We learn that Peter Bertrand is a can
didate for representative and that his
chances for the nomination are good.
For auditor and register of deeds
we have heard no one mentioned. For
sheriff there are four candidates, name
ly John Manderfeld, the present in
cumbent T. Friedmann,Chas. Berg,
and Ambros Parsons who the lucky
man will be remains to be seen. For
clerk of court S. A. George seems to
have the inside track. Judge West
phal will no doubt receive the nomi
nation for judge of probate. For the
other positions we have not heard any
Destructive Fires in Sleepy Eye,
Stark, Sigel and MHford.
The first destructive fire visited
Sleepy Eye last Sunday night, at 9 o'
clock, consuming the large general
store of Murfin & Knudsen and the
hardware store of R. H.Bingham. The
building ot Murfin & Knudsen was a
large two story fiame, the first story
being used for store and the second for
dwelling purposes. As near as we can
learn the fire originated in a small room
in rear of the store, and had made such
progress before it was discovered that
nothing was saved from their large
stock except one show case. Mr. Bing
ham's store adjoined Mmfin& Knud
sen's on the south, and quickly fell a
prey to the devouring element, but we
understand that a large portion of the
stock of the latter was saved in a dam
aged condition. The fire is supposed to
be the work of an incendiary. Murfin &
Kudsen had an insurance ot $1,500 on
building, and $6,000 on stock. We
understand that they valued their
stock and building at $13,000. Mr.
Bingham had$l,200insurance on build
ing and $2,0C0 on stock. The fire was
a close call to our friend Mr, Ibberson,
and had not Mr. Bingham moved the
frame building last summer which
stood between his store and Ibberson,
the latter's drug store would have
shared the same fate.
We learn from Hon. L. D. Rice that
Mark Wiggins, of Stark, is also a vic
tim of the fire-fiend. His people were
burning stubble last Thursday but as
the fire did not burn satisfactory they
left it thinking that it would go out.
Soon after leaving the wind changed
and carried the fire towards the stable,
consuming it, 60 tons of hay and 400
bushels of oats in stack. The loss is a
serious oue to Mr. Wiggins.
We learn from J. B. Villikanji that
one week ago last Sunday, at the hour
of midnight, four stacks of wheat, be
longing to Mr. Jos. Stueber, of Sigel,
were mistenously burned. The fire is
supposed to be the work of an incen
diary. We also learn that Mrs. Hei
nen,of Milford.lost two stacks of wheat
by fire last Thursday evening.
We present on first page the full
county ticket, as nominated by the
Republican county convention last
Satuiday. The candidates for Audi
tor, Register of Deeds, Clerk of the
District Court, County Attorney, Com
Commissioner and County Surveyor,
are the present incumbents of the of
fices for which they were nominated,
and are too well known to need any
comment at our hands. Hon. C.
Brandt,the nominee for Representative
has served two terms in the House,
and was one of the most useful and
active members. His course last win
ter in exposing the school book ring is
well known. Mr. Paulson the nomi
nee for sheriff, lives the town of
Linden, and ha Norwegian by descent
He is a man of clear judgement, has
good business abilities, and if elected
will make an excellent sheriff. Mr
Chiistensen, the candidate for Judge
of Probate, formerly lived in the town
of Prairieville, but for the last year
and a half he has been a resident of
this city. He was the Rep. candidate
for the same office two years ago, but
was defeated by Mr. Westphal. He
was appointed Coroner by the Commis
sioners at their July session, which
office he has creditably filled. The no
minee for Coroner, Mr. Jonas Lauten

Mr. Cletus Epple, of West Newton,
met with a serious Accident last Sun
day. It appears that he was engaged
in hauling sugar cane to the press and

sight of which his horses became
frightened. He jumped from the wa

the swine came nearer the horses be
came unmanageable, threw him to the

passing over and breaking his right
leg. The horses were finally captured,
without doing any further damage, by
some Norwegians who conveyed Mr.
Epple to a neighboring house. Surgi

of Sleepy Eye, is still in the field with
as fine an assortment of harnesses, sad
dles, bridles, curry combs, brushes,
horse blankets, fly nets, halters, and
and-and-but there, it is of no use to
try to enumerate the articles in the
harness line, and all of the very best
that John has on hand and which he
proposes to sell at the very lowest
rates to all persons calling who have
the cash to exchange for the same.
John tells us that so far as business
with him this season is concerned, that
he cannot find the slightest "fault. He
has sold lots of goods, and In nearly
every instance got his pay. Now the
reason of this is obvious. John sells
only the.best in his line that the mar
ket affords, and at such prices as utter
ly defy competition*. vl be convinced
of this you should call and examine his
harness, entirely of his own make, of
the very best material, and fully war
ranted. Just ask John the price of one
of them, then you will see why success
always attends him. Remember that
John is still located at Sleepy Eye just
two doors east of Lake House.
