The mill has a storeage capacity of 30,000
bushels of grain.
The drafts were prepared and the mat
chinery was all furnished by the
North Star Manufacturing Company, of
Minneapolis, in Ibis State, and every
thing about the mill is the very best that
could be had. Mr. J. M. Finch was the
millwright. Thiamin, with water power
and lot, cost Mr. Stanton over $60,000. It
has a capacity of over one hundred barrels
of flour per day, and is now running day
and night. Mr. Wm. Scherfenberg, a for
mer resident of this dty, is 'head miller,
and the qualify of flour turned out must
make the "Eagle .Mills" brand a favorite
in any market where it may be offered.
Thia mill ia but the first of many, sawf
grist and woolen mills, which in the course
of a few yean will occupy places on either

power. One of the great advantages offer
ed by the power at the Bapida ia that when
a mill is once built the expenses, except
those ordinarily attaching to such a busi
ness, are at end. There can be no call for
heavy outlays to repair breaks and "save
the Rapids." The waters rush along over
solid granite foundation which will last
as long as time lasts, or at least as
long as most men will stay around to
look after their mill property. We consid

ture of S Cloud as one of the largest and
moat prosperous dtiea in the State, and our
people have a deep interest in its further
Previous to the discovery of the. new or
"Patent" process, millers depended entire
ly upon bolts to separate the offal from the
nutritious portion of the wheat when
ground. To effect this and make as large
a yield of flour as possible, they ground
fine and bolted out all they could of suffi
cient whiteness for flour, but there was a
portion, the middlings and shorts, too coarse
and dark for flour, which either went to
the oflal or was re-ground, aa it came from
the bolts, and produced a very dark, low
grade flour, suitable only for the Indian
trade. It is this portion of the product
which, being effectually cleanedby the new
process, produces the patent or new process
flour. It is now the aim of millers to
make all the middlings possible, and to ef
fect this they grind high, keeping their
burrs in the best condition for this purpose.
The process of cleaning middlings con
sists «n passing a draft of air through them
with sufficient force to eejlarate the lighter
portion, which is found to be the colored
particles and consists principally of the
fuzz from the wheat kernel. To effect thia
they arc usually spread upon a shaker,
covered with coarse bolt cloth, being first
graded and eachgrade submitted to a blast
suited to its kind. If wdl done, every
particle of colored matter is removed. The
middlings are then re-ground and belted
with care, and produce the "New Process"
flour, so deservedly popular with all who
have once tried it The Scotch Fife wheat,
raised in thenorthern latitude of Minneso
ta aad Canada, is found to granulate best
that is, makes the most and best middlings,
and consequently the highest grade of

runs the six burrs, the bolts and the puri
fiers and a 66-inch for the second shaft,
which runs the feed burr, the wheat-dean

SAUK CENTRE, May 15,1876.
EDITOR JOURNAL.—Our embryo dty
was thrown into a great state of excitement
on the arrival of the "Great Family Paper"
THE JOURNAL, of the 11th inat The cry
went up from the highways, the byways,
and the housetops. Who is "Vindicator"?
Who among us has the ponderous intellect
capable of originating, creating and ema
nating such a production as appeared in
the columns of THE JOURNAL of the
above date, over the signature of "Vindi
cator" It was claimed by some that the
author was not a native to the manor born
that Sauk Centre had no native talent that
could concieve and bring forth such
a literary effusion that the author was im
ported from New Munich or some other
large town, or that he enjoyed some af
finity with your correspondent "C," who
is considered imported stock. These ideas,
however, must have originated with some
one desirous of injuring the fair fame of
our yonng city.
But, seriously, your correspondent "Vin
dicator" was guilty of a most grossand ma
licious misrepresentation by insinuating
that there was a mock trial in the case
against Gruber, or that the attorneys in the
case in any way connived at his acquittal.
It is not necessary for me to vindicate our
worthy magistrate, Mr. West, for he is too
well known known tobeaffected in any way
by this wilful, untrue and uncalled-for at
tack of your correspondent on his official
conduct in this case. And as to the insin.
uation that there was any connivance be
tween the attorneys in the case, hi absolute
ly and notoriously untrue, and if "Vindi
cator" knew anything about the case, as
he so loudly professed, he knew it to be
false. And in this connection I might add
that it is well for him that ho did not make
these statements over his true name. He
reminds me forcibly of Lord Byron's criti
cism on the anonymous writer of a verse
alluding to him and others:

WASHINGTON, D. C.,Mar 17—Se
rious change have.been made here
against what is known as the pine
land ring in Minnesota, and which
are to be the subject„of investigation.
It is said thatjover $200,000 has been
paidtoformer surveyor generals»for
stumpage on government lands, and
that only six or seven thousand
dollars has been accounted for to the
department. Other fraudulent prac
tices in connection with pine lands
are also alleged and aretobe inves
tigated. An agent of the interior
department was sent some time ago
to investigate the records of the sur
veyor general's office at St. Paul. It
is not alleged that the present sur
veyor general is implicated. It is
said that a special commission is fo
be appointed to investigate the whole
subject, of which C. W. Nash, of St
Paul, istobe secretary.
—The strong speech of Mr. John
Bright in opposition to the annual
Woman-Suffrage bill in the British
Parliament is one of the most interest
ing events of the session thus far.
In 1867, Mr. Bright voted for the
bill, and his brother Jacob has been
for many years recognised as the
principal champion of the measure.
Mr. Bright now says his former vote
was wrong, and admits that it was
cast under the influence of sympathy
with Mr. Mill andadmiration for him.
He opposesthe bill atpresent because,
he says, it is based on an assumption
which he pronounces totally false,
namely, that men and women form
separate and hostile classes in the
community because he thinks the
extension of the suffrage to. women
would increase the disorder and cor

READING FOR^ CHILDREN.

What You Can Get For Five Dollurt.
C'HAS. FBAKCIS ADAMS
Says, in a letter to the Quincy (Mass.) Patriot, that
three-fourths of the books in brisk demand at the
public libraries are "rapid and sensational."
thinks that parents ought to guide the children's
taste in the choice of reading more than they do.
The Newark A rtverturr, in
A I E S EDITORIAL
On this subject, says: "A worse literature than that
which is spread before the children of this country
it would hardly be possible for the mind of man to
conceive or his hand to execute. It is even worse
than an open advocacy of vice and intemperance,
for that would carry its own antidote, while what
we have excites, stimulates and debases the intellect,
unfits it for healthy food, fills the imagination with
gaudy and distorted pictures of life, and develops
the passions at an age when they should be most
under control. How much of the low moral tone of
society is due to these satanic issues of the press we
do not not know but, as a river, can nowhere be so
effectually poisoned as at its source, so we have a
right to believe that the millions of these papers, de
voured by curious and eager children, must influ
ence to a large extent the tone of thought and the
drift of action of those whose plastic minds come
under their influence."
The writer adds "It may be somewhat unneces
sary to state that we hare reference in the above to
those monthly magazines for children, whjch are as
healthful as they are beautiful. If all editors were
as able, as truthful and devoted as Mrs. Mary Hapes
Dodge (who edits St. Nicholas), there would be noth
ing to complain of." The New York Tribune says:

That threatens the children, some strong, vitality

In order to place this magazine within the reach

Or, for $5.00, they will send the twelve numbers,
