FARMRsviLLE.--The peo*ple of Farmersville began to cele brate the 4th on the evening of the 3rd, by burning powder in different ways, and kept it up till morning when they began to look about for other amusements. Quite a number went toGreen Lake, where they had a pic-nic, boating, etc. About suuset all began to centre for Mr. Bockoven's where they enjoyed a real old-fashioned dance, which*they kept up till daylight without a word to mar the pleasure of the evening. There were twenty couples in attend ance. The music was furnished by Mr. John Nokas and Mr. Freeland Bock oven. DON PHWNIX MILLET. ^OLD UNRELIABLE," H. Cowles, IS STILL IN THE MARKET WITH A FULL, LINE: OR GENERAL MERCHANDISE, AND IS ON HAND A ALL TIMES TO SWINDLE THE GRANGERS WITH High Prices AND POOR GOODS! An Editorial Erutus. An editor out West indulges in the fol talk to his subscribers and patrons. The famous speech of Brutus, on theparties death of Caesar, rendered by Shakspeare, is made to do service in this amusing t/av esty: "Hear us for our debts, and get ready that you may pay trust us, we have need, as you have long been trusted acknowl edge your indebtedness, and dive into your pockets, that you may promptly fork over. If there be any amonu youonesingle patronthat don't owe its anything, then to him we say: Step aside, consider yourself a gentleman. If the rest wish to know why we dun them, litis is our answer: NqJ that we care about ourselves, but our creditors do. Would you rather that we went to jail and you go free, than that you pay your debts and keep us mov ing? As we agreed, we have worked for you as we contracted, we have furnished the paper to you but as you don't pay we dun you. Here are agreements for* job work, contracts fo. subscriptions, promises for long credit, and duns for deferred pay ment. Who is there so green that he don't take a paper? L! any, he need not speak, for we don't mean him. Who is there so green that he don't advertise? If any. let him slide he ain't the chap either. Whodistricts is there so mean that he don't pay the printers? It* anv, let him speak, for he's the man we're after." Random Thoughts. BY KOVEK.- The average length of man's days is thirty-three and one third years some attain the age of fifty, others three score, a very few threescore and ten, one in five hundred eighty, and hardly one in ten thousanda hundred. Life then, is surely too short to hate one another you can't afford to quarrel it is scarcely worth while. In twenty years from now where will you be? Where iu. ten? "Where in five? Where to-morrow? You cannot tell. No hu man being $an tell! Yesterday, you may have done your neighbor a great wrong you may have said and done many fooiish things you may have said some very unkind things about your best friends in the heat of passion you may have used bitter and intern perate language which you would give worlds to have had remained unsaid. But you can't unsay what has been said yesteiday it is a day that can't recalled, it is gone, yes, gone for ever. Just think of the xoolishness, die absurdity of bickering and quarrel ing over some little pettyprehaps imaginaiyaffair. Who will care to know anything about your likes and dis likes one hundred years from now? You .will lie moldering''in the dust, perhaps before one fourth,yes. may be one eight of that time has elapsed and the world wilt,move on the same as if you never had existed. You may hoard up wealth, and swindle the poor to attain it miserly fool, what use will all that iiches be to you when thou art called to cross the "dark mysterious river?" All thy money, wert thou a million aire, cannot purchase thee a moment of time, when thou are called to go the way of all the world. You may die suiiounded by luxuries and sorrowing fiiends, tender hands may suioothe your pillow, rendering your exit out of this world calm and peaceful, but die you must, so must the beggar. Death is the great leveler. Who can tell what follows after death? You, I, or anyone else cannot truthfully answer that question. Ministers may presume kkno\v but it is only presumption, they never have been there to see. But I don't pretend to know anything about theological^ dogmas.

HE total vote on the bond question in Restate was 17,324 for. 59,176 against majority against, 41,852. HE Supreme Conrt, before whom Noonan was brought on a writ of habe as, corpus, on Tuesday, remanded her back to the custody, of the Sheriff of Hennepin county, and she will have to take her chances before the District Court of that county. IF we recollect aright, Mr. Ham monds, of Anoka,a gentleman well known and highly respected in Prince tonguaranteed if this county woula vote so much bonus he would find who would take hold put a rail road through Mille Lacs is ready to come to the sratch. SOME reasons why Sherburne county should he preferred as a place of settle ment, and its vacant acres enclosed hi farms. First it Is right the line of a railroad and always has this best kind of a market. Just look at th^ other places, like Princeton and Cambridge trying and stii.viig for a railroad, wbfch we already have.- Second it is right'%the world and on ijie lines of travel andfththe midst of civilization it has school.^ and chu'ches and good .neighboihoods^ttncl plenty of things to make life pleasant. Third, it, has prairie and woodland -|iay and water: grazing and tillage land ijj| great vtuiety, and all veiy cheap Sher|i$|rne Co. Star. A very nice picture Jfiend Star to be sure Sherburne county offers many inducements to settlefc| but she has dx&\vh&c\~*rgrasshoppers! one great Then again, the ric!ifi%| agricultural of the county 1 have no rail road facilities whatever for instance Baldwin, Livonia ana1 ^tehill. Now there are hundreds, yes, thousands, of acrec, as good farming lands as the sun ere shone upon, right here in Mille Lacs county, which can be had 'dirt cheap' by actual settlers there are NO GRASS HOPPERS here, nor has there ever been to amount to anything the very ""best kind of wild hay can be had for the cutting an unfailing supply of wood water in abundance Princeton is the base of supplies for the Rum River pinneries, and affords a good market for all kinds of farmers' produceand Princeton will shortly have railroau connection with the outside world the schools will compare favorably with any of the schools in the statea long ways ahead of a majorhy of them churches, enough and to spare. Any of our county officers will gladly im part any information within their power, regarding lands, etc., to pers ons desiring the same. THE RAILROAD PROJECT. Half of the year has already passed away, and.itill not one single thing has been done to effect the great des erdatiuma railroad connecting Princeton with the outside world. There is no use of disguising the fact, that if the present opportunity is neg lected, we shall never have another not a least for some time to come any howfor the next legislature will surely repeal the present law allowing counties and towns to vote aid to rail roads. Ottertail and other counties, show their appreciation of the benefit the act confers, by voting bonds to build railroads. Why are the people of Mille Lacs county so indifferent why is it that when they get what they have been working and striving for years to attainthe right to vote bonds to aid in the construction of a railroadthat they will not now take advantage of last winter's act. All of us know how our special pet bill was fought and slaughterer and how by skilful manipulation and legislative stragety the general bill was passed. Last fall thenowdefunct Appeal was howling for a road across the coun try via. Cambridge, that seemed to be the route preferred by most people. But what Princeton and Mille Lacs county most want is a railroad, and the shortest ana cheapest is the one we can oest secure. In these hard times, it is mere nonsense to sty that a road can be built from here to the L. S. & M. as cheaply as to Anoka or Elk River. It is not positively known that Isanti co. would meet Mille Lacs half way, in ^__ fact, it is altogether probable that a proposition:for aid would be voted down in Isanti county then again'the people otlh at county are agitating the building of a road from Brunswick to Anoka the east and west route is hardly ever mentioned. A road to Anoka would pass through a rich agri cultural country,Baldwin, Spencer Brook and St. Fracois, eaph of these towns would vote liberal aid, and Anoka would do the handsome thing self-interest would prompt the towns we have mentioned to do all iu their power to further a railroad, as it would benefit them as much as it would Mille Lacs county. We are well aware of the fact that not a few of the farmers in this county, especially those of Greenbush and Milo, would be opposed to the Anoka route, because, they say, it would not benefit them is there a sensible man in either of these two towns who be lieves for a single moment that, if Princeton was a town of 3,000 inhabi tants, with mills and manufacturing establishments in her midst, that every farmer in the county would not be benefited thereby. Then there would be a marketand a cash market for all kinds of farmers' produce, and good prices too. And if the railroad would prove a successas it most undoubt edly wouldin very short time it would be extended northward up tow ward the pinneries farms not worth $10 per Acre would be enhanced to double and treble that value hundreds of acres good lands now lying waste would be occupied and cultivated the county would more than double ilk population in the next five years and the aggregate wealth of the county would increase in tie same ratio as the population the increase in taxes would be so slight that it would scarcely be preceptible, and taking into consider ation the immense benefit to be derived, the taxes are a mere nothing. We appeal to the intelligent, go ahead men of Princeton, Anoka and the other towns mentioned, to move in this matter at once. Jf the scheme was put before the St. P. & P. in th'e right light, that company would maj^p a proposition to secure such an im portant feeder there could be bonus enough to almost, if not entirely, build and equip the road. Mille Lacs coun ty stands ready and willing to expend aid to the furtherest extent the law allows her. Lay aside all personal spites and local prejudices and let us give a long pull, a strong pull and a pull altogether, for a narrow guage railroad by the most feasible route from Princeton to Anoka via. Spencer Brook. Base Ball Items. Princeton has two school boy nines and the little shavers play a bully game. The Elks had better look out. It is rumored that the Elks and An chors of Monticello will tackle each other on the Elk River grounds, Satur day afternoon. The truth is not palatable on all oc casions, especially about a game of base ball. This we know from experi ence. It is pretty badly mixed up which of the six league clubs will fly the championship pennant for '77. The Bostons, Louisvilles, Hartfords and St. Louis Browns all keep pretty close to gether. Boys, Mell was a good catcher and Buck was a tip top 2nd base man, but "two swallows don't make a summer," neither do these two comprise abase ball club thee is plenty of first-class material here, provided they practice. Re-organwe, harmonize and all will be well. Let us have anew deal re-organize follow the example of the Anoka club have a board of directors, let them manage the club and say who shall play in match games, then there would be none of this wrangling. We suggest Messrs. H.B. Cowles, F. M. Campbell, E. C. Gile and C. H. Rines as four of said directory. Several crews have already goneoff haying, and others are getting ready to commence. Rev. Mr. Kingsland went down to Ostego yesterday to attend camp meet ing, he will be gone for several days. Pr' K" DEFECTIV E PAG E i Warner came to attend Si's baby on Tuesdav morning.

We have been compelled to slight our advertisers some but will make up for it by-and-by. Mr. George Bockoven, of Princeton towns hip, brought in a dozen heads of spnn wheat to our "den" on the 6th, som of them measured seven, none less tiia six inches, and well filled.

Saturday last was a scorcher, the oldest settler can't recollect of a hot ter day in this latitude the fat pussy fellows caught h1 generally we ov erheard one of them remark that if he thought the lower regions were any hotter, he would become a Christian and remain one until the snow flies. The me.cury in the thermometer registered 95 in the shade at 3 p. i.. The stage, on account of the extraor dinary heat, was delayed until a' late hour. In our short experience we have seen days six or seven degrees hotter, but never felt the heat worse than on last Saturday. wT, V^ onia S ^eat ech fa a lle Water Wheel Which Wastes no Water and Requires Very Little to Run It. We called in to N. P. Nelson's yester day to t9ke a look at a model of a land oi waterf power wheel, invented AT* J^ this place and of whicwybne Mr. Nelson is part owner. A patent has been apphed for. As far as we can learn this new invendon knocks the socks of anythinsj made in its line. It is a "\irbine Wheel made on a new principlewith 17 buckets, standing perpendicular from the iop lor a third down, having the scroll of a true circle at the bottom. The deck is in thickness according to size of wheel, for a 3 ft. wheel the deck is 6 inches thick, (here are 17 apertures in the deck,which is made on a scroll, so that the water strikes the wheel nearly hoiizontally with great force all of the buckets at the same flue giving the wheel a forward motion, where' as other wheels the water strikes in some nearly perpendicular, and in others at an angle of about forty-five degrees common sense will teach aavone that a solid stream of water descending perpen dicular on a wheel having a motion o' about 200 revolutions per minute, must naturally retard that motion considerably This objection is entirely done away with this new wheel, and hence it is proper styled the "Champion Water WheeP' It will nly take about one third the amount of water for the same size whed as the Leffel, or in other words, if yoTuse the same amount of water you will hare aboutthree times the amount of powJr and for running in back water it is claim ed to beat any wheel made. It is no lon er an expeiiuient as it is now used success fully in 7 ditfereut mills. The wheel is set directly under the Hume when practical the gaie is Jy.ug ons top ofn deck, itfitted is madet ol one soiaPf piecuer of cast iron, with samee ^mJ i deck be sam the same. The owners claim the follow- fo P LSSLiSS* 5 we amount oc wa er, lo.es less power by run mug in back water, and ,hat they in most cases gfin fiom 1 to 2 feet in head, that it is lighter, wastes less waler, and takes4es9 water, and that it is simpler and better made. 1 he owners will cheerfully give any information desired.
