The Association above named per
fected its organization on Monday, ut
lis meeting in this place. The com
mittees appointed at Heron Lake lust
winter to prepare a constitution and
a program of business, were ready to
report, so that the work went off
promptly and smoothly. Out of
twenty-three editors in the district
fourteen were present, with two visit
ing brethren, one from Northfield and
one from Sibley, Iowa.
The officers elected were, C. S. East
wood, Heron Lake, President fi. C.
Huntington, Wjudom, Vice President
Jas Ruane, Slay ton, Secretary and F.
N. VanDuzee, Luverne, treasurer.

model of neat, elegant and forcible
rhetoric, and was spoken with clear
voice, and in an impressive manner.

the welcome extended by the people of
Mesdames A. R. Allen, C. S. East
wood and daughter, E. C. Huntington
and two daughters, and Miss Currie,
were also guests of the occasion. Miss
Currie, by her very perfect instrumen

her fine elocution, heightened the in
terest and enjoyment of the session.
At about 11 p. m. the guests of the
tillage, with a large representation of
our people, sat down to a most ele
gantly prepared banquet at the Worth
ington Hotel. The host and hostess,
Mr. and Mrs. Fisher, possess the busi
ness talent, the skill and artistic taste,
the ample means and the hospitable
spirit, that befits their work, and no
banquet was ever spread which gave
better satisfaction. The decorations
were In perfect taste, the table has
loaded with the game of the prairies,
the earliest and rarest of garden vege
tables and fruits, all prtseutiig to the
hungry guests every attraction to
charm the eye and gratify the palate.
There were a number of speeches made
after the reps»st by both citizens and
guests. VYe regret our space will not
allow a detailed report of the pleasant
after dinner speech-making.

FROM THE PEOPLE.
Some few years ago there was con
siderable talk of completing the Diag
onal road to Worthington across the
fiat west of the vilhtge. It was eveu
reported that the road was laid out,
but all thought and interest in the
matter seems to have died out. Now,
it seems hardly possible that the desir
ability of this improvement has not
been seen by the people of a village so
alive to its own interests as ours. That
the diagonal is one of if not the most
important approaches by which trade
comes to our village, is obvious, and
it is the one on which there is the
most competition with other towns.
To my personal knowledge farmers
living ten or twelve miles out on this
road, at muddy times, go to other
towns where the roads are drier, rather
than wade through the mud near Wor
Of course we do not want to be pig
gish, but we want what belongs to us,
in fact, all we can get, and there are
vital reasons why we should extend
our trade and iufiuence in this direc
tion as far as possible. To say that
the road around, at times when it lias
been travelled, is beastly, is at least
putting it mildly, and from the nature
of the land it would be nearly if not
quite as hard to put it in good condi
tion as to build a new road, besides,
this is not the age when people are
content to go around when there may
be a shorter road.
Years have passed in which with our
new graders it would have been a
comparatively easy and inexpensive
task to have built this road. The
present season bids fair to be as favor
able, aud if all those interested in this
matter will combine, why may not
this improvement be accomplished in
the near future. W AKOOM.

THE FACTS TRULY STATED.
EDITOR 'ADVANCE.—It is almost six
monthB'since my last letter to the
good old Worthington paper, aud
knowing that many of my old friends
and neighbors who are readers of the
ADVANCE would enjoy a little letter
now, I proceed to give you afew items,
which I hope will be of interest, and
answer several inquiries.
We have resided here now five years,
•and have seen much of Oregon. We
had a very pleasant fall, in fact till
about the first of February, the wea
ther was very good. After that time
it snowed a good deal for four weeks,
but thawed aboutarit fell, it ia nice
to see it snow here. The flakes* often
as large as silver halfrdollars, coqie
down so thick and so lazily, as the
wind scarcely ever blows here. We
had only 51 inches of precipitation last
winter being about 10 inches below
normal. The roads were, and are yet
very bad. Spring is about four weeks
later than usual, but the weather is
very beautiful now, and people are
nenrly done planting. We had (lowers
in the garden ali winter, aud there
were wild flowers in the woods all the
time too. Peach trees here and many
other kinds of deciduous trees do not
shed all their leaves in fall or winter,
but hold them greeu, and the peach
bloom may be seen red and bright six
or eight weeks before they bloom out
There is an excellent prospect for
fruit of all kinds here this year. Our
orchard though young, is very full of
Our bees wintered well and are very
strong. Stock, too, that were fed did
well. But at least 80 per cent, of all
stock in Oregon does not get near
enough to eat any time in the year, es
pecially in the winter, and "are very
poor all the time. That is not pleasant
to realize, but it is nevertheless true.
People often wonder when they see
the milk we get from our cows. Whilst
many Oregonians have not eveu one
cow many have four to ten, and do not
have milk aud butter enough to do
A great many "webfooters" here are
heavily mortgaged aud cannot redeem.
Carelessness and indolence, I think,
are the principal causes. I am sine ii
is not otten extravagance in fine dress
Yet, as I have written oft before, I do
not understand Oregon, with its fillet
of cliiniLes, its healthfulnes? and
fruitfulness, &c. Y"et it has serious
drawbacks. Scarcely any one can mak»
a dollar in the winter season. It raint
so much, night and day, and nearly all
winter, so no one can work much and
ca'tie have been an unprofitable in
vestment, since we have been here.
Even merchants do but little in wiu
ter. It is even too disagreeable foi
schools. So that after even a five yeais
residence here I do not know how a
man could support a family here if he
had not considerable money. Yet man)
ire tntinualy arriving who seem
have but lictle means, but mauy oi
them go back. Through the effect of
exaggerating booming papers a "Isoom"
has struck this section of the state
lively. It seems our harbor, the im
provement of which is to be begun now
aud we have a very good prospect for a
railroad, down this Siuslaw river. The
right of way is mostly secured and a
company of eleven surveyors has been
at work for some time. The people
now are doing all they can for the
"teuderfoot," the new commer for his
money. They are coming by the train
load and every one wanting to lodge
them, haul something for them, or sell
them something. My sympathy is with
the newcomer, who would have been
no doubt, better off if he had staid east.
I have been in twenty states and Min
nesota is perhaps the best of them,
all considered. I would like to spend
a week in the vicinity of good old Wor
It is very pleasant living here and it
very unpleasant too. No preaching,
no Suuday school. No Sunday. Very,
few who profess to believe in the Bible,
But it is changing, many good people
are setting among us from Minnesota
and other good Northern states. They
bring civilization with them. They
keep Sunday and try to make an honest
living. I do not want to give a wrong
impression now about the people here.
There are many very good old settlers
here but there are more shiftless peo~
pie here than I ever saw anywhere be
Wheat is advancing, flour is worth
2.40, oats 65, potatoes 50, butter 25,
eggs 15. Horses are worth from $15 to
$150, cows $15 to $25 and poor sale.
I see men often with a large roll of
bedding on their back (as all laborers
here and in California furnish their
own beds) hunting work, but I do not
know where one could get a day's
work. Soon it will be different, as
there is a great abundance of fine fir
timber here which must be got out. It
will require one hundred years I sup
pose to get this timber out.
We feel pretty thankful and happy as
with what we produce on our "ranch"
less than the interest on our money
loaned makes us a very good comfor
table living in this fine climate. So we
can sit in the house during the wet
season, and eat fiue fruit of our own
George and Emma are both teaching.
We are all in the best of health and
wish the good old ADVANCE the best
of success. More anon,

VALUABLE RAILWAY 1M
The railway portion of our town hntf
presented an animated appearance f.
tbe past week, the three new railway
side tracks for the accommodation
of the uumerous trains now made up
at this pointv or makiug their transfers
herei being iu process df construction.
•The Omalia Railway has purchased all
the village blocks adjoining its old
tracks, paying handsome prices for
them, and is arranging to purchase
more. In view of a contemplated ex
tension of its Sioux Falls branch westI
ward, Worthington will be a conven
ient point for the transfer of goods
aud passengers, and the present tracks
have not been sufficient for some time
past. About forty hands have been at
work under the direction of the track
master, Mr.. James Manning. Three
new switch tracks have been extended
from Frank Hansberger's barn to
Covey's hay depot. The compauy, w«$&&,

ings now around the station to the vi
cinity of the new made tracks. The
station building is to be painted and
refitted in better style and furnished
with more ample accommodations.
This is the sign of the largely increased
business at this point, and the design
of the railway officials we understand
is to provide sufficient facilities there
for. Worthington does a larger busi
ness than any station between the ter
mini of the Omaha lines, except Man

migration coming in the work of the

At the Universal Exposition of 1839 at

in competition. They were passed upon by a
jury composed of the best foreign mechan

and tests, adjudged that the Wheeler &

awarded that company the highest prize of

companies only gold, silver and bronze
