The town board held a special meeting
on Saturday last to settle up with the
assessor. There seems to have been some
nusunaersianding as to the compensation
the assessor was to receive. At the an
nual town meeting a motion was made
and carried that the assessor was to re
ceive $35 00 but the motion was not
made till some time after the balloting
had commenced and therefore was out ot
order and had no efleot. However the
geceral understanding was that the work
was to be done tor $35.00 and it is safe
to sav no candidate could have been
elected who would have intimated that
he would charge more—we believe con
sidering that the census had to be taken
and the heavy discount on town warrants
that $3o.00 is rather low, in fact lower
than most smaller towns are paying.
The assessor put in a bill for $60.00, this
certainly was too hi«h. We believe in
paying a lair price for any service ren
dered to the town as well as to a private
individual but not a fancy price. The
town board settled by paying $35.00 for
the assessment, and the assessor informs
us that the pay for taking the census is
yet unsettled. The town board, Messrs.
Bronson, Peterson and Janowskey are all
good, conscientious gentlemen, workintr
for the interest of the town and undoubt
edly any decision thev may arrive at will
be for the towns best interest.

In the Minneapolis Journal a few days
ago, appeared an out-side story referring
to one of our business men. The sum
ot money referred to is found to be se
cured by good papers in the amount of
$12,000,00 and there is really danger of
the Big Stone firm being losers instead uf
Taylor or his bondsmen—besides the
money was never borrowed from tne
treasury but from the bank of Redfield.
The German campmeeting which has
been in session at Simpson Park, Big

well attended, and the work lias been
blessed by large acquisitions to the ranks
of the faithful. The names ot the minis

Among the farmers whose crops were
entirely destroyed by hail in the town
shrps of Harmon and Bryant last week,
are the following: Harmon- F. II.

Duncan, John Swanson, D. Sauby, Geo.

And. Kelly, P. Ness, li. Rollings, Z.

Among the above are several who are in
destitute circumstances and need hylp
and the farmers of Roberts couuty who
are blessed with a bountiful crop should
give something to help them in their
hour of need.
This section received a visit from old
Jack Frost on Thursday night. But
very little damage was cone so lut as we
have heard. Seats Burdine reports that
his fields of corn aud beans on Oscar
Simonson's faun were destroyed and that
the Signal man's corn n Gilbert Gilbert
son's place was badly nipped. The frost
was hardest on low grounds and we
doubt if much stulf was injured se badly
that it will not come on again.
We always knew that our friend Jim
McDowell of Marvin was a genius but
we were somewhat surprised upon the
occasion of a recent visit to see the safty
oycicle which Jim had manufactured
himself. It WHS a perfect machiue a
little heaver, perhaps, but still a coun
terpart of the factory made article. The
frame is ot square iron instead of tubular
and the tire solid rubber instead of pneu
matic. Jim says his bike works all
right and he sees no reason why a man
should pay $75 for a wheel when he can
easily make it himself.
