The team was badly bruised among the falling timbers, while Mr. Dinsmooriand hired man were well shaken up.

We saw a beautiful photograph of his home, the magnolia, pepper and almond trees about his door over and 70 varieties of roses twining and clustering in their beauty and fragrance on lattice and porch,until we fancied it must indeed seem like one of the bowers of Eden.

Her cough has all gone, and she can now walk ten miles." There are several ladies in Austin who were siezed with spasms last week when looking over those elegant cloaks at Hall & West's, and there will be no end to the consump tion patients next spring unless the pater familias ward off the attack with a warm cloak from Hail & West's. —Last Saturday, James Barry of Ful da, left a new violin in the care of the station agent at Ramsey. A few minutes after, a gentleman stepped in hastily, and with great assurance, said he would take his violin. The agent, without reflecting that this might not be the rightful owner, passed the violin over to him. Not long after, Mr. Barry appeared on the spot, and the next thing to be done was to find the thief. Telegrams were sent to sev eral points, and soon Marshal Riley, hav ing seen a man coming into Austin with a violin under his arm, had him under ar rest. Monday he was brought before Esq. Griffith, plead guilty, was fined $30, or 90 days in jail. In default of payment, he was committed. He gave his name as "Pat Devinc," but then names are some times deceiving. —DEATH FROM ALCOHOLISM.—We re gret to chronicle in our journal another instance of the fatal effects of the drink custom. Last Wednesday evening, at half-past nine o'clock, Peter Zeller, a res ident of Austin for the past fifteen years, died suddenly at his home on Main street. The immediate cause of his death was heart disease, undoubtedly induced and finally consummated by the excessive use of alcoholic drinks. Mr. Zeller was formerly a merchant tailor in Austin, and held in high repute as a workman. He was a kind-hearted man and a good citi zen, and but for this unfortunate habit might have been living to-day, an honor able|and useful life. Mr. Zeller was 55 years of age, and has only one known relative living, his son who when last heard from was at Hut Springs, Arkansas. Rev. Lathrop attended the funeral services. —A letter from Mrs. J. L. Clark, of Chicago, dated Oct. 15th, informs us of the death by consumption of her last daughter, Fannie M. Clark, in the twen tieth year of her age. Fannie was born in Austin, and many friends of herself and family will sorrow to learn of her early death. She was buried, by her own re quest, at Geneva Lake, Wisconsin, where she spent a part of last summer. We clip the following from a slip sent in the letter Miss Fannie died calmly trusting in that Redeemer to whom believing pa rents had consecrated her. Her funeral was attended at the Episcopal Church, Lake Geneva, Wis., and her remains were buried in the new cemetery in that place, in sight of the beautiful lake, on the banks of which she had spent so many happy days. When she last came to Geneva Lake, the glory of July was upon lake and forest. Nature was triumphant and joyous. But she, how changed Pale, feeble and wasted, she slowly as cended the sunny bank flecked with shad ows. Yet she never seemed so lovely as in her decay. The sweetness of Christian patience, the radiance of Ohristian hope threw a halo above her. She was clothed with the pathetic sanctity of those whom, in the bloom ofyouth, death has marked for his own. With a full realization of her condition she was calm, uncomplain ing, happy, and to her 'there seemed to be nothing dreadful in death, yet life was sweet and friends were dear. Time to Stop It. It's too bad, sir or madam, but don't get frightened. Your hair is falling off— that's certain. A glance in the mirror, or an investigating committee of fingers tell the dismal story. We won't discuss the lossible cause. It is enough that Par ser's Hair Balsam used now will prevent further destruction. Is your hair some what gray, too, and crisp? Alas, yes. The Balsam will give back the original color, softness and gloss. Not a dye, not oily, elegantly perfumed, a perfect dress ing. FIRST RATE EVIDENCB.—"Often una ble to attend business, being subject to serious disorder of the kidneys.

We have also thousands of acres of grass land which we will rent for herding purposes. —TILE DRAINING.—D. What a grand result for Minnesota if all our farms were thoroughly drained, and it would be money in every farmer's pocket and therefore of public "benefit. Where now he can grow nothing, then he would have the best crops on his farm. Call on D. M. Thompson, Bridge street, and get his prices and figure it out for yourselves. Who Will Build New Residences. There is nothing like investing in im provements and helping to build up the city. It furnishes employment to laborers and mechanics and at the same time it is a safe investment to put one's surplus money into. Then again it gives general encouragement to others to follow. It also swells the matter of revenue of the state, county and city. If every man in this city puts his shoulder to the wheel, enough improvements in this city can be made in the next ten years to increase the assessment to nearly double what it now is. The man that invests his money in improvements in a city is worth a half dozen of men who put their money in government bonds and clip the coupons every six months, and by this means avoid all the burden of taxation of state, county or city, and pay not one dollar toward keeping up the departments that protect their person and property. The man who invests his money in visible property, which is regularly listed by the assessor for taxation, pushes everything right along. Give us more men who make visible improvements in a city. They show off better to the visitors from abroad and men at home like the sight of new houses. The man who hoards his money is no help to a town. He never builds it up. He squats down and gets the benefit of other men's improve ments. He is a sort of human blood sucker. We have some of these very suckers in Austin. BE CAREFUL will sell the SM» Sec. 2, GENERAL FARMING PURPOSES. M. Thompson of this city, has been appointed agent of the Mankato Drain Tile Works, and has on hand a car-load of their tiling for sale. Something said, therefore, in regard to the benefits arising from draining lands will be of interest at this time It frees our houses of disease by ridding our cellars of dampness. By removing the surplus water from the soil it secures the effect of a warmer climate wetlands are cold and sour, and a well drained field will add many days to the season. You can plow, etc., at least two weeks earlier, and the earth is at least ten degrees warmer. There is more certainty of your crop you can plaut it earlier, therefore it ma tures earlier. In place of sour, useless grass, you have good, sweet, nutritious hay. Various plans are adopted to se cure these most desirable results. Pro bably the majority oi' the farmers cut some ditches to carry off the water. These answer the purpose for a short time, but soon fill up again with mud washed from the soil by the caving in of banks and by the trampling of cattle through them. They are also objectionable in that they require a good deal of land a ditch four feet wide and eight feet on each side that can not be used makes it equal to a 16 foot strip, which, passing through 100 acres of land, would require one-half of an acre of the best laud on the farm. It is also necessarjr to provide bridges upon which they can be crossed. The best method of removing water from laud is by under draining. The drains are covered so that all the land can be cultivated, and teams can pass along or over them anywhere. When properly laid there is no cavintr, no filling with mud. Those who have had practical experienc prefer tile. Ohio, Indiana and Illinois each have already laid 40,000 to 50,000 miles, and experts say that it is a safe minimum estimate that this is not one-tenth the amount of tile that will be laid in these States the coming years. As to durability, they have been found in good state of preser vation at the excavation of Herculaneum and Pompei, which were destined by the eruptions of Vesuvius, A. D. 79. Tiles are especially useful in draining our cel lars, conveying water from spriug to house and barn, where there is not too much pressure, also at creameries. The capacity is governed by the grade or fall, to a great degree. For instance, the ca pacity of a 3-inch tile (inside measure ment) with one inch fall per hundred feet, is 13 gallons per minute, while the same size with a 3-inch fall would be 35 gallons. The cost varies, according to size and the nature of the soil and the depth would decide the cost of laying. The fall in this country should not be less than three inches per hundred feet for farm draining.
