We understand that a project is on
foot among some outside capitalists to
establish a sugar refinery at this place,
provided the farmers in the vicinity
can be induced to plant at least 1000
acres of sugar cane, yearly. The es
tablishment of a sugar refinery here
would indeed be a blessing for this vi
cinity, and we think that our farmers
will be willing enough to encourage
such an undertaking to their fullest

We met a German Democrat from
Dakota county last week who did not
express a very favorable opinion of
Henry Poehler, the would-be Congress
man. He said that he had served in
the Legislature with Mr. Pcehler and
that Henry was not as much of a Ger
man in those times as he professes to
be now. He says that he, Henry, put
up at a high toned hotel and would not
associate with, or even look at, any of
the German members, and thinks if
elected to Congress a German couldn't
touch him with a forty-foot pole.
We are requested to announce by a
notice from the Secretaiy of the Re

Hon. Wm. Wihdom, will address the
citizens of St. Peter, and vicinity, Oct.
25th upon the political issues of the
day. Mr. Windom is an able speaker
and those who desiie to hear good solid
tiuths should go and hear him.
Every day we hear of grain stacks,
hay stacks and stables being burned by
prairie fires. Why do not our farmers
take time by the forelock and burn or
plow around their exposed propeity,,?
It would be the work of a few houis
only and would save them much pro
perty and inconveniences.
The Republican Senatorial conven
tion for this district met in Mai shall
yesterday afternoon at 4 o'clock, but
up to the hour we go to press we have
notheaid who received the nomina

this county, was the most piomment
candidate before the convention and
no doubt carried off the prize.
The third of a series of letteis on
the financial question from the pen of
O. P. Champlin, of Sleepy Eye, appeals
in this issue. The stand taken by Mr.
Champlin and the arguments produced
are certainly commendable, and his
letters should receive a careful perusal
from every reader of the REVIEW.
The prairie fires are doing consider
able damage in the western part of
this county. Last Saturday the stables,
grain and hay stacks, some live stock

We are informed that J.P. Hagberg,
living about nine miles north of town,
in Sibley county, lost his stable,a span
of horses, several hundred bushels of
grain and all his farm machinery, by
fire last Saturday. It appears that Mr.
Hagberg wished to go away to attend
some kind of a meeting but his daugh
ter was afraid to remain alone at home
on account of prairie fires, and to dis
pell her fears he went out, without
taking heed of the prevailing high
wind, to burn around his premises.
The wind soon carried the fire towards
the stable with the above sad results.
In endeavoring to save his property
Mr. Hagberg was himself severely

Peterson and the Eagle Mill Co. Mr.
Peteison keeps a full assortment of
farming implements, and is the resi

sewing machine companies, of which
machines he keeps.a nice assoitment.
The Eagle Mill is the pioneer mill of
the city and is one of the most impoit
ant elements of our industrial aftahs,
aud is now owned and operated by W.
Bcescli, Jacob Pfenninger and George
Doehne, under the firm name of the
"Eagle Mill Co." The mill is a large
frame structure, located on the banks
of the Minnesota river, is supplied with
five urn of burrs, capable ot grindirg
about 100 bushels of flour eveiy 24
houis. The mill is equipped with the
latest improved machinery throughout,
and the high character ot the produc

perienced and competent hands contiol

mill does a very large merchant and
custom business and aie compelled
much of the time to run night and day
in order to supply the demand which
from the excellent character of the
flout produced, is very great. They
have lately reduced the price to $2,50

The section men of this place were
fighting fiie along the line of the road
the greater part of Saturday night.
The weather continues very blusteiy
and dry, causing a great deal of dam
age from the firy element so prevalent
at piesenl on the dry prairie. Among
Uie sufferers so far aie John McKeon
of this place, who last Saturday lost
his stables, farming implements, and
machinery, seveial fat hogs and all
his crops in fact he has nothing left
but his house and team. We are all
soiry for Mr. McKeon.
Daniel Burns has also lost his grain
ery, all his potatoes and many othei
things, which had been placed in the
grainery for safe keeping. About 100
tons ot hay and his grain stacks
had a very narrow escape.
We also hear that Christy Whelan
and John Whelan, of Willow Lake,
have lost the greater pait of their ciop
and hay. Should not every peison
guilty of setting fires at this season ot
the year be prosecuted to the utmost
extent of the law?
