The Reason Why.
Complaints come to us from remcte
parts of tho county, that our paper does
fiat rcach our subscribers the week of
publication. Once or twiee on account
of sickness,wo have not published until
tfriday morning, but last wcelc tho
{mper was off in time, and iu the post
office in season to reach Le Roy on
Friday. Still our friends say they did
•tot get it. We shall investigate this
matter, and if the "Register boy" who
runs the Austin Post Office, is at fault
vre shall give him a slight ventilation,
both here, and where he got his papers.
Wo :.re satisfied that nothing but fear
of losing his official head, would induce,
him to forward the
TRANSCRIPT
at all.
Doing Good.
The article published in our editorial
oolumns last week, depicting the cor
rupt erudition of politics in this country
is attracting much attention. Demo
antic papers copy it and comment upon
it as an argument against the Republi
can party. This is characteristic shal
lowness. To know that evil exists, is
the first step towards reform. Perfec
tion is found nowhere. Bad men are
found in all parties. Corrupt practises
are incident to all political organisations.
The great difference between Republi
cans and Democrats in this particular,
i« that, if Republicans are corrupt, they
are anxious and willing to reform, but
Democrats are so imbued with the spirit
of plunder that no hope of reward
would induce them to forsake their ini
quity. What! give up the country to
the rule of Democracy for the sake of
making it better! No, never. Too well
do we remember the days of plunder
when Buchanan, Floyd and Benjamin
embarked in the enterprise of parceling
out Uncle Sam's Real Estate among
their friends.
Read and Think.
We invite attention to the article
which appears on our first page from
the pen of a citizen, and tax payer of
the county, who has heretofore taken no
part in the political controversies that
have been going on. His utterances are
plain matters of truth, in which, ev*,ry
man, woman and child of the county, is
interested. His argument, that towns,
and school districts should levy and col
lect their own taxes, is sound. But the
present law is not so bad, if county
officers would do their duly. If the taxes
were accurately levied and promptly
oollccted, and the money passed into
the hands of town and district treasurers
instead of being kept to carry on bank
ing, real estate and various other kinds
of business, the causes for conplaint
would bo much less than now. The
trouble is, our law officers are law viola*
tors. But the peoplo place them there,
and who is to blame
Rough on the '*Reform Dads.*'
Tho following disgraceful picture of
what is going on in our town, under a
pseudo temperance administration, is
taken from the Democrat of this week.
It will be remembered that this same
paper, only few weeks since, "pitched
into" us without mercy, for simpljr sta
ting that under the Reform Administra
tion, drunkenness was fearfully on the
increase. When dissipation, and night
ly carousals become so common, that
tho Austin Democrat is disgusted, there
must be a beautiful eondition of things
surely:
"What is up Where is our police
forco'{ Oh, where are our ity Dads
Our town seems at present to be infes
ted with burglars, pick pockets and
roughs. We havo* lately heard of a
number of places in the city being bro
ken into, and some of our business men
have hail tochango the locks upon their
doors twice a week on account of the
keys being stolen. Merchants are
watched and followed from their places
of business to their residences by very
suspiciots^ooking characters. We hear
pf rows and broils at all hours of the
ity and night. On Sunday last, there
was a considerable battle caused by
w'lisky, which took place on Mill St.,
and again on Sunday night there wax
another row on Water St., in which
three or more parties were pummeled.
This is disgraceful in the extreme.—
Fighting and rowing upon our streets,
caused by whisks, on the Sabbath day."
Cotillion Party*
Messrs. R. J. Thomas will give a
ootillion party to-morrow evening, at
their hall. Those who enjoy a good
time will'makc a note of the time and
place. Free bus to all parts of the city.
Cioiug lllMit,
Mr. Truesdeli, our enterprising
boot and shoe deal.cr, is about to start
oast to secure another stock of goods,
and he desires all these indebted to him
to call and- settle immediately, for he
must have the money. lGtf
Property changes are quite numerous
ast now. F. King Esq., has sold his fine
residence with ten acres of land, to
Samuel Bacon, recently from Illinois,
i\»r $4,000,
He^adi,
It was our pleasure during one of tho
most beautiful days of last week, to
make a flyiug trip through a portion of
one of tho beat agricultural towns iu
the oounty.
Nevada is little talkcd-of and seldom
seen by the denizens of Austin, and it
-ft not generally known that here aro
some of the finest farms in the county
already under excellent cultivation, be
sides thousands of acres of as beautiful,
rich prairie as the eye ever looked up
on. Evidences of thrift arc everywhere
visible, and nearly every prairie home
has its little grove of cotton woods well
started. Quito a largo proportion of
tho population aro of Scandinavian ori
gin, particularly in tho southern part of
the -wn, but the evidences of thrift
and enterprise are nono the less on this
account. There is no people who con
tribute more to the substantial growth
of the State than Norwegians. Always
industrious and frugal, they grow in
wealth under most adverse circumstan
ces, and bccome independent as to this
world's goods, where others would
fail. Someof them have farms several
hundred acres in extent, and mostly well
cultivated. J. P. Jones, Esq., an old
and well known resident of this county
has here a splendid farm for stock rais
ing, well supplied with wood and water,
all fenced in two or three fields, good
buildings, and an abundance of cur
rants, gooseberries, plums, cherries, &c.,
and a fiue young orchard well under
way, all of which he offers for $20 per
acre. A rare chance for some one who
wants a good home. Mr. Jones is tired
of farming and has purchased a pla.e
iu the new town of Northwood, in Iowa
wfyere he propose* to spend the balance
of1 his days, enjoying the comforts of
the "handsomest home, in Northern
Iowa." This accounts for his desire to
sell and leave Nevada.
We would not forget to say that we
found the crops here as everywhere else
in-Mower county, looking remarkably
well, andthe farmers all wearing cheer
ful faces.
The HappjrrFamlljr.
The members of the little partnership
concern known as the Democrat & Reg
ister are just now indulging in the edi
fying pastime of calling each other hard
names. Davidson calls Wood an "As
tonishing Mud turtle," and Wood in
retaliation calls Davidson a "Mud-turtle
astonisher." The real cause of this
slight misunderstanding between the
"twin brothers" on the mud turtle
question is found in the fact that Da
vidson wants to play "big turtle" and
devour all the crumbs, after having
agreed to divide. Davidson's memory
is short and he has forgotten how last
fall he agreed to give Wood half the
spoils resulting from county printing.
Poor Wood. This is the result of
seeking bad company.
Will yon Support me for Treas
urer thiii Fall
The above question is now being pro
pounded to very many of our citizens
by a hungry politician who has already
been long and well-fed, but whose con
stant greedy cry is more, more. Be
fore pledging themselves, we advise vo
ters to examine the situation carefully.
There is no hurry. Especially should
they inquire what this premature effort
to secure pledges, means.
Found.
Found near A. Richardson's on the
Le Roy Road about five miles south
east of Austin, a lady's wallet, contain
ing three dollars in money, and a black
jelt. The loser can have it by proving
property, and calling upon.
A classmate of Rev. Williams,
preached for him last Sabbath.
THE
Methodist people in the sur­
rounding country, held a grove meet
ing, near the Cedar, six miles below
Austin, last Sabbath. Several Clergy
men from abroad, were in attendance.
Quite a number ef the youth and
beauty, as well as several elders, went
from Austin. The meeting was both
pleasant and instuctive.
Rev. Mr. Goizard, from Owatonna,
will preach in the M. E. Church, next
Sabbath morning.
FROM
every direction come in reports
that crops tievcr lqgked better. Farm
ers are laughing and growing fah over
the prospect. The wheat crop is now
hoynnrl continjrencv, and in some
places, the harvest has already com
menced.
THERE
will be a Sabbath School
Concert, at the Baptist Church next
Sabbath evening. Special preparations
have been made, aud -an interesting
time is expected.
It being an established fact that the
Constitution Bstiors are far superior to
all other Bitters, it is not surprising
that they are used to such an extent.
There is no doubt that if people consult"
their own interest, they will be supplied
with them at all times, for a few doses
taken in time will often prevent along
and lingering sickness.
Everywhere victorious, Seward's
Cough Cure.
Looks well.
We are glad to see such aa immense crowd
constantly flocking to the store of Deller A
Ounz,which shows thatthoy are selling goods at
low figures and giving satisfaction gtmerally

LKROY ITEMS.
Business for the past weok has been
very good, taking iuto consideration tho
weather, the time of year, and condition
of the roads. Wheat is still advancing
in market. Prices paid during the
week reached $1,10 aud $t,15. The
receipts of wheat at prcscut arc consider
able. We hear of barley of the new
crop, cut and ready for market, and has
been contracted for immediate delivery.
We do not hear of any damage dono to
crops in this section as yet. Farmers
all say the prospects are good.
Matters in the way of news items
about town, are decidedly scarce we
wish some first class sensation would
turn up, BO that we might have some
thing to excite us. Well, if we do not
have any excitement, wo are not idle.
Building goes on steadily as a matter
of interest to some, we will mention a
tew of tho new dwellings now in curse
of erection, and thoso that have been
finished lately. Of course wo do not
expect to compete with larger and old
er places in the cost of houses, yet we
do thiuk our citizens display a credit
able spirit in the matter of buildings
and if they do not spend large sums of
money, they exhibit taste in what they
do build. Wentworth Ilayes is building
on Broadway a dwelling which will be
24x28 on the ground, is two stories
high, and has a wing on either side
Wc think the style is decidedly good,
It will contain nine rooms, and the ceil
ings are high, both in lower and upper
stories. When completed it will cost
about $2,500. Mr. Hayes was fotunate
in securing the services ot Chris. Free
uier, as the builder, who is doing the
work in a manner that will prove him
a first class mechanic. Next to Mr.
Hayes,F. M. Goodykoontz has just com
pleted a neat cottage 16x24 with an ad
dition, tho main part is one and a half
stories high and is well finished. In
Mr. G's. absence, we cannot learn the
cost of it. E. F. McKee is building a
two story dwelling, which is intended
for comfort it is 18x26 feet, good
height, and when finished, will be an
ornament to our town it will cost about
$2,000.
J. D. Allen has just completed one
wing of a gothie house which stands on
high greuud, and is very conspicuous
When Mr. A. shall have completed the
other wing, he wiU have as pretty a
house as could bo desired. We did not
learn the probable cost when finished.
H. J. G. Croswell has a building not
yet completed which will be large and
well built. At present he is not doing
any work upon it, but we hope he will
finish it soon.
Next weok we will notice a few more
improvements in town.

Attention
Farmers,
I am agent for th»
VALLEY CHIEF
which is tbe best and only really good com
bined Self-Rake Reaper and Mower. It took
the first premium at the Minnesota Stato Fair
in 1868, when eighteen first-class machines
competed. It did the best work in all kinds
of grain. The platform is supported by castor
wheels, so that there is no wheel hoading down
the grain as in other machines. The rako
is simple and arranged so that there is no dan
ger of its striking either the driver or tho hor
ses.
Do not buy until you have SEEN the Valley
Chief.
Also the
MARSH HARVESTER.
II desiring to purchase one of them must ap
ply early, as the supply is not equal to the de
mand.
I am also agent for
