Since then Dorcas has held high carnival. The. heaviest loss Ortonville has suffered for years in a social way is in the removal of llev. J. Ii.

This family wields a social and religious influence in a community more powerful than the pulpil itself and are a blessing to any place. Coal ni'.UeatioUH at Beards!ey, Minn, are very favorable.

It is thougnt Ortonville is the right place tor that institution of learning, owing to the great abundance ot the best kind of granite rock. In fact all that would be required is to excavate a cave in the "rocks" and put the prisoners in. It. is also held up as an inducement that the location is so near Milbank.—Ortonville Headlight.

Monopolistic congressman no doubt look at this in the same way too but that don't aid the western wheat-raiser, nor develop the natural, God-given advantages. These waterways were no doubt in tended by nature for heavy freighting nut it appears that Davenport don't care to see it in that light. We can remember when, doubtless, for the same reason, Mr. D. made his unfav orable leport on Dig Sone lake which, it is said, he purveyed at this end by gazing hurriedly from the rear steps of the Ortonville hotel, and at the other, by going into Brown's Valley by rail in the evening and leaving early next morning by the same con veyance.

There is a movement on foot for the coining legislature to abolish the fee system for county oflioers, and give them all regular salaries. This is as it should be. There is no good reason why a good salary should not secure as good service as the uncertain fees, and the benefit, if any, given to the taxpayers.—Pierre Free Press.
