—The young kids who run the Albert
Lea High School Journal, appear very sen­

the Journal seem to know to whom we

high school visitors from A. Lea) were

—Under the new dog law the fine for
failure to comply with its provisions is ten
dollars in each case. Besides, police offic­
ers and constables in the various cities,
villages and towns in the state are requir­
ed to kill all unlicensed dogs within their
respective jurisdictions, as such dogs will
be regarded as outlaws. All persons may
destroy them. The law further provides
that all dogs duly licensed shall be regard­
ed as property, and their owners' rights
in them to be protected the same as in
other kinds of property. The damage
done by dogs is to be paid but of the fund
collected for licenses and fines, pro rata.
Better get your dog licensed, or you won't
have a dog long or short either.
—The following decision of the Su­
preme Court, is an important one, and is
largely due to the indefatigable efforts of
Lawyers Johnson and French of this city.
Page was the opposing counsel:*
Daniel Heffner, appellant, vs. Herman
Gunz, respondent. Syllabus—A judg­
ment recovered by default upon service
of the summons by delivering of a copy
to a third person not a resident at house
of defendant's abode, is void for want of
jurisdiction. Such judgment may be set
aside upon motion without showing ex
cuse for delay in making such motion and
without merits being disclosed. An
attachment under chapter 36, general
statutes o11878, is a provisional remedy
in the action and does not confer jurisdic­
tion to enter judgment against defendant
without a service of the summons in the
manner prescribed by statute. The order
appealed from is affirmed.
—We want our friends abroad to under­
stand, that Austin is not dead, nor yet
asleep. She has awakened upon an era
of business thrift and general prosperity.
We are an economical town we are
industrious we are friendly—we are cour­
teous to strangers we are hospitable we
wish our neighbors well and are not en­
vious and the selling of quite a large
number of farms to thrifty new settlers in
the vicinity of Austin during the past
winter and this spring, is conclusive
proof that the country is prospering.
This year we have a first-class creamery.
Next year we propose to start some other
industiy. Now is the time to strike Aus
tin, while property is low. A bright
future is certainly just before her.

HARRIET ALLISON, daughter of Rev. E. R.
LATHROP, died Sunday, at 10:15 p. M., aged
twenty-four years.
Miss Latbrop had been gradually failing for
three years past, from consumption. Yet her
death was very sudden and unexpected. Part
of the family had returned from church
about an hour before, when she was seized
with a hemorrhage, which brought death in a
few minutes.
She was a graduate of the St. Cloud Normal
school, and was just finishing the second year
of teaching in Rochester, when her health
failed, three years ago.
The people of Austin have known her only
as an invalid, but her patient, christian en­
durance has commended her to all who have
known her.
For three years she has wreBtled with dis
ease, and made a heroic struggle for life, but
yielded to death with the utmost christian
resignation, having waited now in almost
daily expectation of that event for three
mouths past:
The members of the church and congrega­
tion of which Mr. Lathrop is Pastor, and
many others, have been very devoted to the
family in this sickness.
The announcement of anew book by Marion
Harland, whose popular novels and worlu on
household economy have endeared her to thou­
sands of hearts, is sufficient to excite great public
interest. Probably no woman in the entire list
of American authors is so peculiarly fitted for the
task of writing a work which deals with the
physical, intellectual and moral life of her sex as
the successful and popular author of "Common
Sense in the Household," of which 100,000 copies
have been sold. The book is sure to excite a
great deal of discussion and will be sought after
by every intellegent woman, young or old.
The book deals frankly, earnestly and fearlessly
with the whole subject of woman's condition and
position in the world, the position God intended
she should occupy her rights, duties, and privil
eges the delicate peculiarities of her complex
nature her relations to her own kind, and more
especially her relations to the opposite sex. All
thoughtful persons admit the crowning need of
a work of this peculiar character, written by a
woman of unquestioned ability and wisdom, and
that woman a wife and mother, a woman whose
reputation for ability and purity is world-wide,
just such a one, in toct, as Marion Harland,
Every mother in the land may not only profitably
read this book, but safely place it the hands of
her daughters. It was written from a keen sense
of duty, and with the high purpose of giving
help where help is sorely
The work is the earnest practical talk of a
thoughtful woman with women, upon what is to
them the most momentous subject of the day
and age. Beginning with the birth of the baby
girl, the author leads the child up to girlhood
and womanhood, each with its vicissitudes of
recreation, study, society, home duties—on to
marriage and prospective maternity. The book
is intended for home-reading,—as
a reference and
a help to those with whom the author is already
In full sympathy, through the medium of her

lessons to be learned from every page. Price

CHICAGO, 111., April 10, 1882.
miek Manufacturing Company of Chicago
are causing notice of the suit of the
owners of the GORHAM PATENTS against
me and other manufacturers, to be gen­
erally published in the newspapers of the
country with inspired comments intended
to "promote the sale of their own ma­
chines, and injure others, I deem it proper
to say: The owners of certain patents,
known as the "M. L. GORIIAM," have
brought suit against me, alleging infringe­
I wish to state that the Gorham patents
have for along time been offered me at a
moderate royalty, and were carefully in­
vestigated by my attorneys, who decided
that I in no way infringed them. If the
owners think otherwise, it is quite legiti­
mate and right they should submit the
same to the decision of the proper ribunal.
I 'will cheerfully join issue and abide
the result. A decision in the circuit
court can scarcely be expected in less
than three- to five years, and a final one
in the Supreme court in any less time
you need not therefore expect to be made
immediately acquainted with the final
The courts are open to any one wishing
to litigate his patents, and the owners of
these patents were at liberty to prosecute
their action against either the manufac­
turer and vendor, or any seller or user
but having properly elected to proceed
against me, they arc debarred from action
against any of the others concerned. I
should not consider this suit of sufficient
importance to mention to you, only that
it has been made the occasion by a well
known concern for a BUNCOMHK ADVER­
This concern is understood to have be­
come the owner of a one-third part of
these patents by exchange of other pat­
ents ot little value, and is now flooding
the newspapers of the country with no­
tices of the suit, accompanied with com­
ments intended to make the impression
that it controls the TWINE BINDER pat­
ents, and that it will be hazardous for far­
mers to buy any other than their own
machine Any machine that requires
this class of advertising must he in sad
need of substantial merits to commend it.
This concern fails to insert in these paid
advertisements for the benefit of pur­
chasers of farm machinery, that they arc
now in the courts as defendants in suits
for infringements of the MARSH HAIIC
VESTER patent, for infringements of the
Gordon patents on Binders, and for in­
fringement of the Graham patents on
Mowers. Why do they not advertise the
fact that all, or nearly all, the machines
they have put out of late arc subject to
patent litigation? And with the formula
usually appended to the notices of the
Binder suit, "It would be well for farmers
to be cautious" in buying MCCORMICK'S
machines, etc.
Farmers are not supposed to be much
versed in patents, or to consult an attor­
ney every time they have occasion to pur­
chase apiece of farm machinery, and any
concern who should propose to trouble an
innocent purchaser with questions of this
kind, is and deserves to be considered un­
worthy of the confidence or patronage of
the farming community,and is, and should
be odious, especially when redress can be
had of the responsible party who makes
and puts the same upon the market.
Such advertising can and should only re­
sult in injury to the party authorizing it,
and no reputable and higli-minded party
will resort to such methods of intimida­
tion and threats. The "Drive Well" or
"Barb Wire" method does not take well
with farmers, or generally commend itself
to manufacturers of harvesting machin­
Finally, I wish to say, I was first to put
a successful Twine Binder in the harvest
field. I have made and am making the
best and most successful Twine Binder.
I have sold more and am now making (as
I believe) more Twine Binders than any
other concern in the United States. I
shall continue to make and sell the best
binder. I am able and disposed, and will
warrant, defend and proteet against all ad­
verse claimants and comers.all past, present
and future purchasers of the Deer ing Twine
If the courts in this case, or any other,
find me guilty of infringement, I will
abide their decision and respond to their
mandates. Yours Truly,
Graham vs. McCormick.
Judge Drummond, of the United States
Circuit Court, on Saturday the 22d, en­
tered a decree in the patent case of Hugh
Graham vs. Cyrus H. McCormick and
partners. This is the second decision in
the case in Graham's favor. This in­
volves the tilting'or rocking of the cutter
bar of mowers and reapers.
It is understood that the complainant
claims $5 royalty on each infringing
machine, and that the McCormicks have
built many thousands, so that the case
probably involves several hundred thous­
and dollars.—Inter-Ocean, April 28, 18825
