—The new stoves in Opera hall are
•a great improvement, and capable of
making it comfortable even during very
cold weather. Now, if the managers of
the hall would lay 2x4 stringers along
the floor, under the ends of the settees,
with holes bored in them for inserting
the legs of the settees, to prevent the
latter swinging around or being crowd
ed together, they would add another
improvement. It would not be necessa
ry to fasten the settees to these string
ers, nor the stringers to the floor, and
they could be taken up readily when
the hall is to be used for dancing.
—Geo. Vandenhoff, of New York,

His selections are made from Dickens,

morous and tragic emotions, that ren
ders his readings the most delightful
treat that can be offered to an intelli
gent audience. Mr. Vandenhoff un
questionably stands at the head of his
profession—superior even to James E.
Murdock and Mrs. Scott Siddons.
Thoroughly dramatic in his impersona
tions, he is never theatrical. He pre
sents nature to us as it is—in excited
action it may be—but never in exagger
ated form or color. Studied, classical,
finished, he bears the same relation to
the ordinary "professional public read
ers" that Edwin Booth bears to the
standard "ranters" of the stage.

"Don't Drink To-night, Boys," a new
Temperance song and chorus, by the

consists of four stanzas, and each one
rich in sentiment and advice to young
men. The following is the first stanza:
I left my mother at the door,
My sister by her side
Their clasped hands and loving looks
Forbade their doubts to hide
I left and met with comrades gay,
When the mcon bro't out her light
And my loving mother whispered me,
Don't drink, my boy, to-night
Chorus—Don't drink to-night, boys,
Don't drink to-night
A mother's friendly warning heed
Don't drink to-night, boys,
No, no, no
Don't drink to-night.
The music is in keeping with the
words, and should be in every house
hold. We understand that Temperance
Lodges are ordering it from all quarters.

This is a real improvement,
the efficiency and value of which is ap
parent. It consists of two pans made
of charcoal sheet iron, one of which is
used as a cover to the other, being at
tached with a hinge and, when closed,
forming an airtight receptacle. The
attachment is so constructed, however,
that the upper pan or cover can bo read
ily detached and removed when it is de
sirable to have only an open pan in use.
The upper pan is, also, provided with a
vent-hole and valve for closing the same.
The advantages of this apparatus may
be briefly enumerated as follows: If
you are cooking meats, you place the
same in the lower pan, attach the cover
and close the vent. Your meat now
cooks steadily and rapidly without suf
fering from the evaporation of its juices
and without requiring to be basted.
After it is sufficiently cooked, open the
vent-hole and a very little additional
cooking suffices to produce a thin brown
crust. Then you have your roast meat,
"done to a turn," without loss of juices
or flavor. In baking bread, you place
your loaf in the pan, put on the cover,
and leave the vent open until your loaf
is so far baked as to allow the evapora
tion necessary and form a sufficient crust.
You then close the vent and the bread
undergoes the process of "sweating," or
"soaking," without any application of
wet cloths, and you have a delicious
loaf, with a soft, thin crust. The agent,
Mr. A. M. Eaton, is now canvassing this
city for orders and we have no ctoubt
that he will meet with a favorable re
ception from Red Wing house wives.
The apparatus is, also, advantageously
used tor roasting poultry, game, &c,
and for baking cakes and puddings.

On last Saturday a meeting was held
at the office of Mr. C. Betcher's lumber
yard to organize a company for the
erection of the proposed new flouring
mill in this city.
Mr. A. J. Grover, of Minneola, was
elected chairman, and Phil Skillman,^
Mr. Betcher proposed the appoint
ment of committees to further the work
of organizing. He said that about
$50,000 of stock had already been sub
scribed, and about $10,000 more was
needed to cover the estimated cost of
the mill, and called on Mr. Hiram
Waters, a millwright of Akron, Ohio,
who was present and had made some
estimates in that regard, to give the*
meeting the benefit of his views and ad
In response, Mr. Waters stated that
to erect a mill with 12 run of 6tone

more would be needed as a working cap.

Pomona Grange Meeting.
The Pomona Grange of Goodhue
county, (No. 3,) met at Burchardt's
hall, Hay Creek, on Friday last Jan.
26th. The granges represented were
Hay Creek, Hay Creek Valley, Belvi
dere, Wacouta, Burnside, Belle Creek
and Red Wing. Worthy Master Wm.
Hayman, Sen., presided. The minutes
of the former meeting were read and
approved. As some of the officers elect
and to be installed had not received the
fifth degree, it was decided to confer
the degree first upon the several appli
cants, and J. B. Smith and H. H.
Young were appointed a committed to
examine the candidates applying for ad
mission. The committee reported in
favor of all the applicants, namely,
Misses Minnie Miller and Clara Bunch,
Mrs. Eliza Stromberg, and Messrs. W.
W. Breckt, Wm, Miller and Wm. B.
Kruger, all of whom paid their initia
tion fees and were received into the
fifth degree in due form.
The doors of the grange were then
opened, and the following officers were
Rudolph Kruger, Overseer
H. H. Young, Secretary
Henry Buss, Steward
Michael Doyle, Asst. Steward
Peter Stromberg, Gate Keeper
Miss Clara E. Bunch, Pomona
Miss Minnie Miller, Lady Asst.
The installations were performed by
the Lecturer of the County Grange, W.
S. Grow, assisted by Mr. Thomas, of
Belvidere grange. Mr. J. E. Simmons
the Master elect was absent because of
sickness: Mr. B. B. Herbert, Treasurer
elect, was absent on an imperative bus
iness call to Minneapolis and Mrs. A.
Grosse, Ceres elect, was detained at
home by the illness of her children.
Mr. W. S. Grow, the Lecturer elect,
was present but was not installed, for
what reason did not transpire.
After the ceremony of installation
was concluded, the hour being late the
singing and speaking was dispensed
with, and the grange closed in due form.
Taken altogether the session of the
grange was a pleasant one, the attend
ance fuller than for some months past
and the demonstration betokened a very
considerable revival of interest in the
Order. The next meeting of the
Grange will be held at the same place
on the fourth Friday (the 23d day)
of March, st ten o'clock a. m.
It is hoped that the members general*
ly will endeavor to be present at the
next meeting, and to get there, as near
ly as possible, at the hour appointed.
Some few who attended on Friday last
got there in time, but others did not ar
rive till after one o'clock, and no busi
ness was transacted until after two
o'clock. The result was that the busi
ness was necessarily performed hastily,
and the social features of the meeting
were almost entirely omitted. Had
the attendance been prompt at the hour,
we should have had an interesting dis
cussion, perhaps, and some very excel
lent singing, Let all, then, strive to
be on hand promptly at ten o'clock
The members generally who attended
on Friday were served with an excel,
lent dinner by Mr. and Mrs. Burchardt,
and all the teams were provided with
comfortable stabling and a full allow
ance of food.
—SCARCITY OP MONEY.—There is
no doubt but the present condition of
all kinds of business and industry is
fearfully depressed, and it behooves ev

prevail everywhere, and Consumption,
with other throat and lung diseases,
will carry off many.—These diseases
