At the time of the
serious fire in our village on the
17th day of March, 1895, the
Mayor called upon our sifter-city
of Willmar, for help, and, where
as the municipal authorities and
fire department of Willmar
promptly responded to said call,
and rendered to our citizens
efficient aid and in all respects
did neighborly and able service,
therefore be it

We have before us the most
unique and pathetic newspapei
ever our lot to behold It is a
copy of the Weekly Tiibune of
Gallauav, Neb, of Satin day,
Feb. 9th, 1895 It is printed on
a remnant of wall paper, picked
up probably in the attic. The
following appeal from the editor
of the Weekly Tribuue explains
To BRO. PRINTERS:—
"Aid is being sent here for the
farmers, but we can't issue on
aid, flour or a piece of nd** meat,
and having run all our white pa

old paper we have on hand.
Now that is about exhausted
and only the office towel is left,
which has not been washed foi
seven yeais. So we ask our bio
ther piinteisto consider our sit
uation, with a fa-n ilv to suppoit,
with nothing ommg in, and we
know their e\er generous dispo
sition will see some way to con
tribute a little paper oi a couple
of hours work to keep mv paper
agoing for the good it will do the
outside world in telling them
how this afflicted droughth

also to enable us to get shoes
and proper wraps for oui wife
and four children.
All communications will be
cheeifully answered and anj do

district. If other information is
needed write to Win. Van Winkle

little gift, if no more than a
dime, will be gratefully received
Among the news items of the
Galloway Weekly Tribune we
"It is now estimated that o^ er
12,000 have left this county since
last fall, in fact all who could get

stole a sack of flour aud when
the officer got tHere to arrest
him, the children were eating it
"A poor German by the name
of Fred Hoffman, near Gibbon,
hanged himself on account of be
ing destitute and not receiving
aid and tired of living on one
meal a day."
"The Arcadia (Neb Courier
tells of a distressing case of desti
tution which recently came to
light in that vicinitv. A woman
recently gave birth to a child,
but there was nothing in the
house to eat, no fuel and no
clothing. In the coui se of a day
or two the neighbors found out
the state of affairs and provided
-for the needs of the family as
best they could, but the aid came
too late. The woman died, leav
ing six small children without
suffic ieut clothing to keep them
waim. She WHS btnied Sunday
in a rough, unpaiuted pine box.
The Cornier ad Is: 'And et the
governor says Nebraska will take

name of humauity why don't
they do it.'"
This is horrible, this bpggars

Grove City Correspondent.
As a great number of the read
ers of the Tiibune had their
chief market place iii Grove City
in the dnys gone by, it may per
haps iuterest them to hear how
things are here at present.
It was generally believed that
Grove City would suceumb on
account of the sharp competi
tion from the towns springing
up along the St. Cloud & Will
mar branch oti the Great North
ern line and the "Soo Line" where
Grove City diewits chief support.
But it seems as though that
Grove City have not only kept
its own, but can boast of a trade
which many a larger village would
be proud of. This, however, is
undoubtedly due to the richness
of the sui rounding country aud
the energy of her business men.
The size and appearance of
Grove City have not changed
materially for many years, al
though it has undergone many
changes it its business circles. It
has at present three general
Mtores, two hardwarestoies, two
boot aud shoe stores and one
drug store, two hotels, four
blacksmith shops, two wagou
shops and one bank. And the
citizens decided last election that
they shall have "Dram Shops"
to adorn their prosperous village
the coming year. Said institu
tions were opened with a graud
"Hoodoo" the second of Apiil.
Perhaps one of the most pros
perous business enterprises of
Grove City is a Farmers Co-oper
ative Creamery, which, it is said,
distributes among it patrons
about $ 15,000.00 yearly. Which
is chiefly to account for the en
hanced business of Grove City.
Lyman Chandler of This City
Last Tuesday Morning.
It becomes our sad duty to
chronicle the death this week of
one of New London's old and
respected citizens, Lyman Chand
ler Lyman Chandler was born
in Batavia, New York, June 11th,
1831. He would thus have been
04 ears old had he lived to June
Llth next He passed away
peacefully April 2nd, 7 o'clock in
the morning after a few dajs
illness His health has been poor
of late years especially on ac
count of a rheumatic affec
tion of his neck that rendered
him to some extent a cripple.
But he has been around as usual
this winter with the aid of his
cane, and accompanied with
"Topsy*' his faithful dog and
constant companion. Friday of
last week he was taken down
with the prevalent fatal pneu
monia, and died as we have
stated Tuesday morning. Mr.
Chandler settled in New London
1870. He worked at first in thp
mill both as miller and mill
wlight. After a few years, as
his liealth began to decline, he
devoted his time to be^-keeping
and gardening in both of which
branches he has been very suc
cessful and made a comfoitable
living, considering his state of
health and his opportunities.
He was widely read and of more
than average intelligence He
was in fact a sort of mechanical
genius His mind was of a large
generous character. There was
nothing narrow, small or selfish
about him. In religiou he was a
spiritualist, and he bore his many
physical infirmities buayed up by
potsithe assurance thatheshould
soon throw off his moital coil,
and resume the onward inarch
of progi ess that his mind craved
unimpeded by mortal infirmities
Death to him was in fact a
positive relief, and he looked for
ward to it as such, whenever
the course of providence his time
should come. We all feel that we
have lost a familiar figure and a
warm-heaited friend. He was
ever ready to visit the sick, as
far as his strength permitted,
and extend to any suffering
person the hand of aid and friend
ship. He was a Royal Arch
Mason, and an honored and re
spected member of the general
Masonic fraternity and in a long
and eventful life has well exempli
fied the tenets of his* profession
by practicing the Masonic pie
cepts of brotherly love, lelief aud
tiuth. His column is now
broken, but his earthly work was
fiiiKhed, and his memory is sweet
in the minds of his brethren. He
was buried Friday afternoon
under the auspices of the Masonic
fraternity in Oak Hill cemetery.
Rest in Peace.—[New Loudon
It isn't the amount of religion
a man has that makes him good
and fits him for heaven—it is the
amount he uses Long prayers
and loud professions do not
count, a wise writer says, but the
man who loves his fellowraenand
fellow women who ministers to
afflicted and wears a smileforalJ.
including his wife and children
who never swears on Sunday nor
ki«'ks the dog when he ought to
kick himself who speaks well of
people when thnir backs are
turned and under all circum
stances keeps an even mind—
that man doesn't have to die to
go to hea ven. He gets to feeling
happy all the time as a matter
of habit, and takes all the dis
pensations of life with philoso
phical satisfaction. He never
grows old and when death comes
it finds him just as ready to go
as he was to stay and he walks
down into the valley as cheerful
as the average young man steps
into the next township to see his
best girl. Verily, -virtue is its
own reward.—[Albert Lea Stan
