Relief Meeting.
A meeting of citizens was held at the
City Council on Monday afternoon, for
the purpose of considering the matter
of contributing relief to sufferers from
grasshopper depredations in the western
counties of this State. His honor,
Mayor Sterrett, was called to the chair
j| and W. P. Brcjwn, Esq., acted as Sec
retary. Among5 those present we no

!By request, Hon. Jutige WSSde* stat
ed briefly the object of the meeting, and
I added that it is not possible for any
ii one to fully appreciate the utter desti
cation which the people of those regions
re suffering, unless they go amongst
ham and see for themselves. What is
pul ilished or told concerning the matter
x? inadequate to convey the truth. It
is essential that they shall have help
one that at once, and it has been
ho ught best to make a general effort in
it
Re Wing under the auspices of the
CAlj Council, in order that every citizen
mapr be reached and solicited to con
., rxmte. The several religious denomi
in ions have done something already,
fc- their efforts are confined to those ofGreen
ir own churches, and thus a large
?)dy who are able and willing to give
a: likely to be overlooked.
Rev. Chauncey Hobart said that the
nomination to which he belongs (the
ithodist Episcopal) had had the sub.
jot before them for consideration, but
lull deferred action in expectation of
ttte general effort, with which they
wiild heartily co-operate.
Rev.lMcLaren said thathis cengrega
til (the Presbyterian) had already
Alt forward some contributions, but
lid unite with this general movement
ai I send more. He moved that a com
ii itee of five be appointed to solicit
ney subscriptions and designate a
4 ce to which articles of food* and
thing could be sent for shipment
I that the committee should publish
ax address to the citizens urging them
sontribute.
~f Hr. Brooks did not think it best to
it for the citizens to donate voluntar
I5 but that the committee should make
J. thorough canvass of the city, going
%., {tn house to house, and solicit and
I .i ect donations. The matter was too
I ent for delay.
(Judge Wilder agreed with' Mr.
ooks, suggesting that a brief hand
address *might be distributed, but
:t personal solicitations wertfessen-
The winter is already well ad
ced and the help is needed now.
ev. Mr. Hagna, also, thought a
onal canvass essential, and had but

v. Mr. McLaren amended U$ mo.
0||BO as to agreewi^Judge Wilder's
suggestion and to secure greater per
spicuity, it was so amended as to pro
vide for a committee of five to act with
the City Council, to organize subcom
mittees to solicit donations and make
arrangements for forwarding,the same
promptly.
The following gentlemen were ap
pointed such committee. Messrs. E.
T. Wilder, E. W. Brooks, Ole Hagna,
Wm. Eisenbrand and Chauncey Hob

At the suggestion of W. P. Brown
those present were offered opportunity
to donate money at once, and $161 were
collected in a few moments, as follows:
W. P.Brown $10, H. &E. T. Wilder
$25, E. W. Brooks $15, Dr. Hewitt

Mayor Sterrett and Hon. E. T. Wil
der were appointed a committee to pre*
pare a brief address and see to its cir
culation.
Contributions will be received at any
time at the council rooms.
The following is the address issued by
the committee:—
To the people of Red Wing! Gov.
Pillsbury has called On all good citizens
to contribute to the relief of the poor
and suffering in the grasshopper section
of Minnesota. The destitution among
the settlers in those regions is greater
than is generally supposed. In some
neighborhoods the crops have been* de
stroyed for four successive years. Many
of these people are now absolutely suf
fering for want of food and clothing,
and if not promptly helped, death from
cold and starvation must, in many cases,
result. Anything and everything is
wanted—money, provisions, bedding and
clothing—of all sorts, new or old.
A Canvassnig Committee will soon
call upon each of you to explain this
subject morefully, and on Monday, Jan.
15, a team will call to receive your con
tribution please have it ready! If, for
any reason, it should not be called for
on that day, you are requested to send
your package to the Council room over
Freiedrick & Hack's store. In the
name of our Divine Master and of a
common humanity, we beg you to aid
in tins work of charity.
By Order of the City Council and a
Committee of Citizens. •"•'•'.'

IN UNION. STRENGTH—IN KNOWLEDGE POWER.
—Mr. H. N. F. Lewis, the well
known publisher of the Western
Rural, having been ousted from his
position in that office by means
which seem to be decidedly unfair,
has commenced the publication of a
new paper, called "Lewis'Rural,"
of which we are in receipt of the
first number. It is an eight column
to the page folio, well printed and
filled with excellent articles. The
articles headed "What Farmers
Want", "Michigan Grange," and
the "Value of Health," which we
reprint on the fifth page, are select
ed from it and are good samples of
its contributed and selected articles.
We should like to see Mr. Lewis
succeed in his new enterprise and^l
can truthfully recommend his new
paper to our readers. His terms
are $1.50 per year in advance, and
his address H. N. F. Lewis, 177
Madison St., Chief^o, Illinois.
—New Orleans is in a commotion.
Mr. Nicholls, the democratic candi
date who claims to have been elect
ed governor, has out an armed force
to sustain him and they have install
ed the democrats who claim to be
elected Judges of the Supreme
Court. Mr. Packard, the republi
can who claims to be elected gov
prnor, is also supported by an arm
ed force and a collision is imminent.
—Francis P. McNamee, Esq., of
St. Paul, died on Monday last, after
a brief illness. He was one of the
local editors of the Dispatch, having
filled that position from the time
that paper started. His disease
was pnenmonia. He left a wife and
five children.
—It is reported that a duel has
been fought between Mr. Bennett,
of the New York Herald, and a
brother of Miss May, to whom Mr.
Bennett had been engaged to be
married.
Cough No More.
There need be no Coughs or Colds
where Dr. King's New Discovery for
Consumption is used. The most severe
cases of Croup, Hoarseness, Pain in the
Chest, Bleeding of the Lungs, yield to
its wonderful power almost instantly.
A few doses will invariably cure the
Worst cough or cold. For Asthma and
Bronchitis it is a perfect specific. Con
sumption and Cough worn patients nev
er fail to find relief in this great discov
ery. We would advise any one tired of
experimenting with physicians' pre
scriptions or quack medicines to drop
them at once and use Dr. King's New
Discovery. Give it a trial. Regular
size $1.00 Trial bottles free. For
sale by all druggists.

LINIMENT!
Which has stood the test of 40 years.
There is no Sore it will not Heal, no
Lameness it will not Cure, no Ache,
no Pain, that affliots the human body,
or the body of a horse or other domestic
animal that does not yield to its magic
touch. A bottle costing 25c, 50c, or
#1.00, has often saved the life of a hu
man being, and restored to life and use
fulness many a valuable horse. 22yl

We are the authorized agents of several
of the most reliable insurance companies in
the United States. We have embarked in
the insurance business determined to stay
with you and ask a fair share of your busi
ness. We want first class risks and none
others, and will write small lines on strictly
No. 1. buildings and stocks at rates much
less than have been asked during the last
two or three years.
Our rule is to write a risk for what it is
worth, and having no assessments to pay to
the National Board we can insure your
property at less rates than those companies
paying large yearly dues for having rates
made fer them. Our companies have each
a large net surplus overall liabilities, and
during the past years have steadily made
money, their percentage of loss being in ev
ery instance far less than that of the most
popular Board Companies. We invite the
closest scrutiny of the Companies we repre
sent and are anxious to compare their
standing and ability with any company
represented in Red Wing, and we can prove
to any fair minded man that their policies
are indemnity in any sense of the term.
