evidently had been seized during the nigiit with
an attack of the Fourth of July, and this corrod

Miner & Parsons. Mr. P. recently ex
pressed a desire to see the "forty
graphs" of several citizens and who do
you think the favored ones were? Why,
the four handsomest men in town, of
course, Ileal Estate Agent Parsons, the
Register of Deeds, the Clerk of the
Court, and—well, modesty, you know
forbids. The "groop" were photoed
by Chidley and sent on to Plainer to
sample, and here's the result:
GKNKVA, June 30, 1878.
DE.AU P.—Feeling that twice what
could be givtu would be expected of a
rythmic acknowledgement of that
siiadowy quartette, tit simple prose al
low me to Lliunk the substance of said
shadows, sincerely several limes.
That Tour or the wise men of (he West,
Should drop their laimrs and their lies',
And sink llieir dunes a group ot .shades,
'I hat hint of he tit It and the frost that, fades.
Hath touched, ah. touched shall it he denie 1,
Our manly heart with a nameless pi Me.
Yes P., to feel that dimes, time, and
toilet had been squandered on the cu
rious whim of a straager's gaze, swamp
ed us in obligations and conceit.
When lo, on came with the ADVANCE
the Chidley picture reduction an
nouncement. Frost to our faucy—SOc
for a shadow, and groups in propor
Vet, paradoxical, 'I is clear,
Vr ith sense of di-lit as deep.
We ho your plea ant Tjpcs as dear,
As though not half so cheap.
To the Physiognomist your gathered
shades a curious page has been from
their reception. Character litis been
variously read by various eyes all along
between the trust of a Parson and
teachery of a Piute. Miller is oftenest
mistaken for a preacher. "So Spiritu
al." they say, "a materialized Saint,"
and till that. A face, that a child
might climb to kiss, if a good climber"
was suggested of Carrier. "Kindly,
but careless," of Chadwick, and "dash
and devil" of mud-broker Parsons, are
a few of the multiplying notches on
the treacherous scale of the average
"O would some power Hie giftie gio us.
To see ourselves as others see us."
Even through shadows, was happily
prayed, yet happily unanswered. By
the-way, how abo it the ague in your
section? Report sa3rs that your fresh
turned acres tire sinks of malaria that
would sluike tlie rattles from the tail
of a niassasauger. However, as thethe
ADVANCK don't say so, there must be
some mistake about it. Miller makes
his paper a credit to the country, don't
he? 1 have frequently made it an in
spiration to the slow of faith among
our lenders. A country that can at
tract and support such brains, can pay
12 per cent, and twice that on a pinch
they agree. I have just come in from
a ten mile ride, and such crop*—
"What shall the harvest be," is one
question, and what shall be done with
the harvest, quite another this Year.
You asked me to swap shadows Tom—
but you'd sling verses at it, and 1 can't
stand 'im. Long live the quartette.
"May their shadows, etc., etc.
J. M. PLUMEU.
That paragraph about the ague is
good! Why there isn't ague enough in
this country, and there never has been
enough, to keep a doctor in chewing
tobacco. There are a few cases now
and then occurring in families which
live near the lakes, but that this in any
sense whatever a malarial or an ague
country is as absurd a notion as that
Minnesota is an arctic region of ice
bergs and wliite bears.
We have tried the climates of Ohio,
New York, Virginia and At kansas,
and if the best features of all these
were extracted and put into one, they
would not make a climate equalling that
of Minnesota. We have seen scores of
people come to Minnesota looking lean,
sallow aud sickly and in a few months
they have come out looking plump and
fresh, and full of vim to lay hold and
carve out their fortunes. We do not
say this is always the case, but this is
the rule. We have more bright days,
more energy to the square inch, and
more fresh and breezy enjoyment to the
minute than we have seen under any
climate we have ever tried.
Thanks to Plumer for what he says
about the ADVANCE. We have abund
ant assurance that it is doing a good
work not only at home but abroad, and
we expect soon to enlarge our facilities
for making it a still better paper.
THIS EPIDEMIC—Six more victims

epidemic is spreading and there is no

until every one open to the scourge is
laid low. The physicians are baffled
and the ministers can only perform the
last sad rites over the remains of once

EDITOR ADVANCE: Perhaps it would

prospect in this town is the best at pres

rank, so much so that some of it would
lodge if we should get a heavy storm.
I have noticed some pieces that went

Mr. Nosely is not a large man, but
the proboscis of him is of exceeding
great size, and glows like an Aurora
Polaris. For years has Mr. Nosely
been ii|ologizing to himself fur tlie
grandeur and brilliancy of his nasal
organ, aud familiarity with the looking
glass, far from bringing contempt in
its train, has led him to lielieve that
his is not such a bad sort of noise after
all, and, putting bemity out of the
question, probably as successful for all
blowing purposes as even a life insur
ance agent. It was. therefore, with no
very pleasing sensation that Mr. Nose
ly read a letter, written him by Mark
Twain, announcing that the latter in
tends to deliver an illustrated lecture
this winter on "Inebriety and Indolence
contrasted with Industry and Excel
lence.*' and requesting the use of Mr.
Nosely's nose for the "frightful exam
ple," while "Industry and Excellence"
would lie exemplified in a Litrht-Kun
ning "Domestic" Sewing Machine.
Ami now Mark vows that, as soon as
his jaw heals and his eye blenches out,
he'll take that sewing machine around,
ami lecture just as if nothing liad hap
lMHied, and ho won't give old Nosely
