Editors of the Transcript: As this will be the last issue of your widely circulated paper preyious to the opening of our Mower County Fair, I would beg leave to further trespass on your space to try and instill in the minds of the farmers, and every body, to so ar range their work that they can attend our own County Fair, which opens on next Tuesday, Sept. 17, and closes Thursday, the 19th. The officers and directors es pecially request that all owners of teresh ing machines will so arrange their work that they will not need to run their ma chines on Wednesday, the 18th, in order that all farmers may have an opportunity to hear the orators of the north west. The Hon. Albert Scheffer, of St. Paul, is a man well known all over the State, and he has never before attended a public meet ng in this county. We desire that all should have an opportunity of hearing thia statesman and friend of the masses of the people. He will be followed by the Farmers Advocate, the State Lecturer of the Farmers' Alliance of Minnesota, and farmers wishing to form Alliances in their immediate neighborhoods should not miss this opportunity, as be will give you full instructions at that time, and will entertain you on many other impor tant subjects at same meeting. So let no Alliance man or farmer stay away. As 1 have previourly stated we are to have bv far the largest and best display of horses, cattle, swine, sheep, grain, veg etables, grasses,machinery, manufactured goods, poultry and fine arts, shrubs, flow ers and plants that we have ever had fore. We are also to have a sham battle by the militia of the State. Something no one can afford, to miss. The merchants and machine men are to make finer exhib its than they ever have before. And furthermore, the merchants and citizens of Austin have as never before, donated citizens' purse for the purpose of aiding the directors in carrying out the fair suc cessfully as mapped out. In connection with the many other at tractive features, the committee in charge hvpe secured the services of a number of the fastest horses in this circuit for this occasion. So parties desirous of seeing same of the best time ever made ia this part of State can witness it at our coming fair. In conclusion we will say, come everybody, and bring something to help the* mammoth fair along and we will promise you all a good time.. •Ruly Yours, J. J. FURLONG, Res. Mower Co. Agl Soc IMPROVEMENTS. T« what? Why in everything, has been so great within the past few vears that one can hardly see where more can be made. In railroad cars, locomotives and rolling stock generally the improv ments have been many and great, few years ago traveling bv rail day and night without a sleeper in a regular day coach was considered a'luxury. Then the sleeping car made its appearance, and was hailed with delight by the trav eling public, who imagined that the acme of comfortable traveling had been reached, But in a few months a new star in railroad circles made its bow, and the immediate success of the peerless Mann Compartment Car was assured, and the traveler was correspondingly happy. The Chicago, St. Paul & Kansas City Railway, running from Chicago to Min neapolis, St. Paul and Kansas City, was one of the first to recognize that this was one of the things they wanted and consequently secured it, and is the only line in the west that places at the dis poeal of their patrons a solid vestibuled compartment Mann Boudoir Car train, with magnificent dining cars, to the west. As fast as improvements in railroad cir cles are announced that are meritorious and can be utilized for the benefit of their patrons, they are at once secured and placed in service by the Chicago, St. Paul & Kansas City Railway. It is by such prompt recognition of the wants and comforts of the traveling public that the Chicago, St. Paul & Kansas City Railway has deservedly earned the title of being one of the leading lines in the West. A trip oyer this line is one of the things to be remembered by the Western traveler.—Woman's Illustrated World/ If. Y., Aug, 24,1889. Pneumonia and Bronchitis carry off One Third of the ffntnan Raee. It is not generaly known that Pneumonia and Bronchitis carry off one-third of the human race, bnt such are the facts, and what is more surprising, both of the above diseases result from neglecting a common ordinary cold. A cold should never be neglected. If it is every time you catch cold you cough harder, and it sticks by you longer, Ballard's Hore hound Syrup is the best remedy the world for paeuumonia, Bronchitis and all Throat and Lung troubles. If you have any throat trouble call for Ballard's Horehound Syrup and take no other. Giles & Tryon, Agents. 1 ttce.

Dexter Sept. 7,1889 Editor of the TRANSCRIPT: For once the people of Dexter have been treated to a Scientific Lecture, or at least that was what the advocates of the lecture called it when they solicted sub sdiptions for money to import the speaker into our burg." The Lecture was delivered by a being bearing all the outward appearences of man and passing by the name of "Rems burg." The Lecture was giyen for three even ings in the school house. The majority of the donors considered that they had their money's worth the first evening others who had stronger stomachs stood the test for the second lecture while some endured it to the last. The most of the money that was raised to import him in here was raised by the snbject being misrepresented it was said that it would be purely a Scientific lecture. The donors say that they have paid their money but they failed to see the "scientific" part of the lecture. The convictions of the majority of the hearers were that since Dexter was started, there never has been delivered in our midst so "degrading" a lecture. A man who would stand up before an audience and use the languague he used is wholly unfit to pass in decent society. He sneenngly and tauntingly ridiculed the Bible from beginning to end. He without any respect for himself or any body else made a^great many as sertions but gave not a particle of proof for any. A great many went to hear him and went every evening to see how bad he could talk, it being noised around that a man of that character was in town they came as eager to see him as a little boy would be to see "Jumbo" stuffed. I think he made some broad assertions when he claimed that the "Infidels" had been the instruments to produce the re forms that had raised our republic to the standard it now holds. He claimed that our missionaries that have been sent among the heathen nations had corrupted their morals. He did not tell us what morals were corrupt ed. But it was a "blazing shame." He must have lived among these heathen to find out the morals that the missionaries have corrupted. The majority of the Dexterites consider that the morals of Remsberg cannot be corrupted, for the same reason that "Jack couldn't eat his supper."

Irving Dodge, 110 West 125th street, New York, certifies:— About two years ago, after suffering for nearly two years from rheumatic goat, being able to vralk only with great discomfort, and having tried various remedies, including mineral waters, without relief, I saw by an advertise ment in a Chicago paper that a man had been relieved of this distressing com plaint, after long suffering, by taking Ayer's Sarsaparilla. I then decided to make a trial of this medicine, and took it regularly for eight months. I am pleased to say that it effected a com plete cure, and that I have since had no return of the disease." Mrsi L. A. Stark, Nashua, 15". H., writes: "One year ago I was taken ill with rheumatism, being confined to my house six months. I came out of the sickness very much debilitated, with no appetite, and my system disordered in every way. I commenced to use Ayer's Sarsaparilla and began to improve at once, gaining in strength and soon re covering my usual health. I cannot say too much in praise of thia well-known medicine." "I have taken a great deal of medi cine, but nothing has done me so mueh good as Ayer's Sarsaparifta. I felt its beneficial effects before I had quite finished one bottle, and I rem freely testify that it is the best blood medicine I know of." —L. W. Ward, Sr., Woodland, Texas.
