STATIC OF MINNESOTA,) LA»I OFFICE, ST. 1'ACL, Murcli 29th. 1S7S. V Notice is hereby given that the COM M15SIONER OF THE STATE LAND OF FICE WILL OFFER AT PUBLIC SALE, ALL THE SCHOOL AND INTERNAL IMPROVEMENT LANDS THAT HAVE BEEN APPRAISED in the County of £UUW001 i AT I REDWOOD FALLS ON Monday May 13,1878 aft IS o'clock a. m. Descriptive list of the tracts to be offered, their appraised value and terms of sale, will be on tile at the Auditor's office in said county for the information of the pub* lie. Fifteen per cent, of the purchase money and interest at the rate of seven per cent, on the balance from the day of sale to the first of June, 1878, will be required on the day of sale. On timber lands an amount equal to the value of the timber will be required in addition to the fifteen per cent. After the first payment the balance of the purchase money in full or in install ments is payable at the option of the pur chaser until twenty years from the date of sale, on Iuternal Improvement lands and thirty years on school lands, provided the annual interest at the rate of seven per cent, is paid in advance on the first of June of each year. Upon a failure to pay the interest when due the lands revert to the State without further notice or pro cess, arid will again be sold at public sale, unless double the amount of interest due is previously paid. O. P. WHITCOMB, Commissioner. Remember the lecture Friday evening. M. E. Powell Esq. went to New Ulm on Tuesday in the right-of-way matter. The commissioners appointed to assess damages in Brown County are performing their duties this week. We presume that the commission ap pointed for this County will attend to the matter next week. Messrs McMillan & Hornier retarned last Friday from their trip to Illinois, bringing a very fine Norman horse for the Redwood County Stock Association. He is four years old and weighs 1G00 pounds. We believe that they paid #2,000. for him. They purchased from E. Dillon & Co. Bloomington 111. who have the most celebrated stables in the west. The horse they purchased, Pompie Smasher, is a magnificent specimen of that breed of horses. He is not only without blemishes but has the very best points of excellence. It is generally conceded that the Norman blood is what is needed in this locality and the Company acted wisely in getting a first class horse. Messrs McMillan & Ilonner, also, brought sixteen other horses, work and driving horses, to sell, and have already sold near ly all of them. It is their purpose to keep a sale stable. They will bring nothing but good horses and as they wants of the community in that line, the Real Estate transfers during April 1876.

The deficiency school lands were selected in the same way Owing to these facts it is probable that there never has been a public sale at which the lands were so uniformly good as will be the ease at this sale. A farm selected at random could scarcely fail to be above the average. Persons, however, who wish to suit themselves as to comparative amounts of plow or hay land, or the location, should make their own select ions or have it done for them. so slight as to be unimportant.
