a few evenings since.
The long freight trains daily going
through Worthiiigt.ui indicate quite an
increase in the business of the railroad.
One train went east a few days ago
containing o2 cars.
Seeding has been lively during the
week. Some wheat has already
sprouted.
The pay-car passed here yesterday,
scattering currency and joy as it went.

success and has a promising future be
fore it.
S. A. Davis has already received his
new, horizontal ice-cream freezer and
will be able, by beginning early, to sup
ply the demand for ice-cream the com

year in his business were about $3,000.
The fishing season is fairly begun.
In Ocheeda creek, the outlet of Ocheeda

Parties owning property on the north
side of Tenth Street between Fourth

A large number of European Larches
may be seen just across the railroad,
opposite the coal-yard. The railroad
company, as heretofore announced, is
about to plant Larches along the line
of the road, and the work is now pro
gressing on both sides of Worthington,
under direction of Mr. Sol. Waters.
The warm weather has thawed out
the soda fountains, and the "sizz" of
of the drawing can be heard along
Tenth street. We had a glass at Moore
& Smith's, which tasted refreshing af
ter a four mile walk from one of the
best claims in the county. Their soda
is capped with marble, and embossed
with silver, and hence can be relied on.
The first boquet of the season was
sent us yesterday by Mr. Bloom.—
It is composed of the prairie crocus

pioneer of the flowers. We learn that
the prairie is already colored with them
in places.
Hum iston & Stockdale are adding
largely to their stock of hardware,
stoves, etc. A visit to their store is
sufficient evidence that they mean bus
iness. Tiicv have the best stock of
crossing and breaking plows in the
market and are well worthy the confi
dence and patronge of the community.
PERSONALS.
Dr. Barber has returned from
Winona.
Dr. Leonard, Register of the Land
.office, has been in town during most of
the week.-
Mr. Grant, Clerk in the Land office,
came over on Monday, and is stopping
at the Worthington Hotel.
Mr. Hollipeter and family have re
turned fro Indiana and will spend the
Summer in Worthingion.
Mr. Rohne, traveling agent for the
lumber house of Dean & Co., of Minne
apolis, was in town yesterday.
Dr. Barber has just returned from
St. Paul with a complete Stock of
Goods, in the line of Drugs, Stationery,
Blank Books, Patent Medicines, Per
fumery, Druggists' Sundries, &
which he is selling at panic prices.
THE ADVANCE.
An Eastern journalist, and one who
has made his fortune in the newspaper
business, writes us concerning the pro
gramme which we gave in our issue of
the 4th inst., for making the A A N E
a first-class country journal. says:
"Tha programme ought to bep tint
ed on satin in letters of gold and liung
up in a gilt frame, not only in the AD
VANCE office, but in every couuty news
paper office in the land. I is exact
ly my idea of what the paper should
be." The pajier can be brought up to
that standard, but it will require un
wearied industry, alertness of every
kind and versatility of talent on the
one hand, and a generous support from
the people on the other hand. The
marked improvement of the paper un
der the n«w management is drawing
congratulations from friends and
amends from foes.
JOBBING HOUSE.
Mr. Raines, junior member of the firm
of Barnes & Son, of Chicago, was in
Worthington a few days since prospect
ing witli reference to opening Grocery
and Drug jobbing house. We learn
that M. Barnes was very favorably im
pressed with the location and that lie
will probably open his stock of goods
here as early as the first or middle of
May. We do not doubt that in a lew
years quite jobbing business can be
done from this poi. t, as there are some
nine counties which trade more or less
at Worthington. We occupy the half
way position between Sioux City and
Maukato, and as there must be a tra
ding and distributing city of some con
sequence between these wo points, we
feel sure that Worthington will be that
city. It is so recognized now, and we
see nothing in prospect which can pre
vent it.
OK ABE A FLOUR.
Messrs. Sutton & Co., are receiving
letters from the East which indicate
that the Okabena or Worthington
brand is taking high rank in the eastern
markets. Minnesota Hour generally
seems to be steadily advancing not on
ly in favor but in price. We are assur
ed that the Minnesota new process flour
is driving the St. Louis brands, which
formerly held the first rank, from the
market.
The Okabena mills are so complete
that the flour made here is as nearly
perfect as machinery and skill can make
it. It now ranks, as was seen by tie
letter published in a former issue, as
the "best ll-uir ever seen in sioux City."
In some instances farmers at a distance
have complained of the amount of wheat
required in exchange, an 1 have gone to
inferior mills to get their flour. But
after eating (lour more or less bitter
from weeds and much darker, they have
usually returned to the Okabena nulls,
glad to pay a few pounds more in ex
change in order to nave their wheat
cleansed and scoured by the maciiinerj
in use here, and to get flour which is
pure ai.d white as snow. Fanners fre
quently come here from Dakota and
lowa'to exchange.
THE ABHOR MEET I SO.
Pursuant to call, a number of citi
zens met at Miller Hall last Saturday
to appoint an Arbor Day for Nobles
county. Dr. Craft was called to the
Chair and Capt. I A on was chosen Sec
retary. The first Saturday in May was
selected as Arbor Day. A Commit
tee of five was appointed to correspond
with the Supervisors of each town to
notify them of the appointment of the
day. the Committee consisting of
Capt. Miner, C. C. Goodnow, Chas.
Humiston, Mrs. Lackorand Mrs. Craft.
A Committee of Arrangements wasap
fointed consistingof M. 1. Soule J. C.
Clark. C. B. Loveless, Mrs. II. Humis
ton and Mrs. Capt. Smith. The time
appointed for the meeting on Arbor Day
is ten o'clock in the morning.
The programme will be announced
hereafter. Now let every one beachI
preparation for the day, and let us see
who can plant the largest number of
trees. Make it a holiday, a tree-plant
ing pic-mc, and do yourselves and your
children a permanent set vice.
LA.\1
OFFICE.
The Land Oflice is now in Worthing
ton occupying quarters in the Post of
fice building. Dr. Leonard and family
and Mr. Giant, the clerk, and family
came over during the week and Judge
Wakefield will be here in a day or two.
The oflice will open on Monday, thel'Oth,
and the business of ordering trials will
no doubt be resumed with vigor. We
congratulate the people upon the re
moval of the oflice to a point more ac
cessible and convenient.
THE THROUGH TRAIN.
The Sioux City Journal says that at
a meetii of railroad men in that city
recently it was arranged to run through
trains between St. Paul and St. Louis.
The time on this road will not be
changed. This arrangement, we learn,
will go into operation Monday next.
The Worthington Aflmwe under the
new management is better than before.
—Sibley Gazitte.
And there is very general regret that
the change was so long delayed. We
have just liegun to improve the A
VANCE. Nothing short of making it
one of the best weekly journals in the
west will satisfy us. A'e expect soon to
enlarge the paper, improve the make-up
and the matter, change the name in
part, and make a pajier worthy of the
National Colony as it is to be, and as it
icill be if the temperance and the relig
ious elements are true to their work.
ARRIVALS.
The arrivals bv train for the past
week numbered about the same as last
week: Fanner's Hotel, 7 by train
Third Avenue, 17 by train and 29 by
team Worthington Hotel, 49 by train
and 29 by team 73 by train. W did not
hear from the Okabena House. A great
many still arrive by team who do not
register at the hotels.
REV. ROBT. MCCUNE.
Rev. Robert McCune and Lady, of
Toledo, arrived here by the evening
trail on Saturday last, and are the
guests of Dr. Moore. Mr. McCune
preached at the Union Church on Sun
day morning and evening. visits
Worthington at the solicitation of
many friends, and thinks of making
this his home as soon as he can arrange
his affairs to quit Toledo. Mr. Mc
Cune is at present Appraiser of Mer
chandize for that port. was chief
editor of tli3 Toledo Blade during its
palmy days, and did much to give it
the reputation which it acquired as
"the great radical paper of the North
west." During a part of the timd we
were associated with hi in in the editor
ship of the Blit'le, and we are quite
sure Unit for sturdy and manly char
acter, and for pure gold all the way
through, we have rarely known his
equal.
AN ADVENTURE.
NOT FROM E A N E W S
A few days ago our bachelor friend
Church drove into Okabena Lake with
his ox-wagon to get a few barrels of
water. The oxen had not been defi
nitely informed as to his purpose and
therefore took it into their heads, it
seems, that he wanted them to cross the
lake through the middle. Mr. Church,
perceiving this misapprehension, set up
a series of the most ieculiar and im
moderate shouts which we ever heard
emanating from an ox-wagon, crying
woe woe! "woe to the oxen
with a vigor worthy of the man who
proclaimed the ruin of the ancient city.
But those oxen kept right on, and Mr.
Church not up and walked out of the
frying-pan into the fire, that is, lie walk
ed right off the hind end of the wagon
into the water and made for the shore.
The water seems to have had a sobering
and invigorating effect upon Mr.
Church, for h? stopped where the lake
was about waiht deep, turned round
and bejjan some remarks and blandish
ments in ox language, such as
woe-jee jee-woe-uovv jee-ef
EE-EE dwelling upon the last word
at considerable length, emphasizing the
ante-penultimate, giving the rising in
flection to the penultimate, and reach
ing a perfect scream of a climax at the
ultimate or final syllable. This seems
to have brought the oxen to a sense of
their mistake, for they turned to the
right with great deliberation and waded
ashore, looking as innocent as a pair of
twins.
The ladies of the Union Church will
I hold a pound social at he residence of
Mr. ckor on next Friday evening.
ince our announcement of this so
cial in our last issue, there has been
I considerable inquiry as to what a Pound
I social is. We aie requested to publish
the following explanation Every per
son is requested to bring a pound of
I *(iiu //(('/i/, with the donor's name attach
ed to the package. After refreshments
have been served, the various packages
will be sold at auction. Persons bring

cents for refreshments.
FIRES.
On Sunday last, about noon, the
house of M. Brayton, of Indian Lake
township, was burned to the ground,
with all its contents except one or two
articles of little value. Among the ar
ticles consumed were a piano and a
sewing machine. The house caught,
we learn, from a spark which fell into
the stable manure with which the
house had been banked up. The loss
falls very heavily on Mr. Brayton.
Another fire oc urred yesterday in
sight of town. The stable on Mrs.
Pen field's farm, on the West Lake,
mglit fire about two o'clock in the af
ternoon, and was entirely consumed.—
Mr. McKee, who lives on the place,
lost some implements and a quantity
of hay and feed. The house was saved
with great diflkvtlty. We learn that
the stable manure with which the
house was banked up was several times
on lire. The stable caught from a prai
rie fire lighted by a boy who lives with
Mr. McKee.
There is quite a penalty for firing
the i-rairie. vet it is done eveiy day
with impunity. This year especially,
when there is a prospect of quite a
hatch of young grasshoppers, the prai
rie grass should be preserved in order
to burn them up. Those who need to
fight prairie fires may find it to advan
tage to know tnat there is nothing
equal to wet bags for the purpose. One
with a wet bag or two can put out
an ordinary fire.
While upon this subject we wish to
call attention to the hay, straw and ma
nure, which cover half the lots in
Worthington. We have all that is need
ed for a conflagration, except the spark,
and that may be applied at any moment.
DESTROYING TREES.
1
Croquet has broken out in Windom. there.
Passing by a claim a few days ago
where there were a number of trees set
averaging six and seven feet in height. I
we noticed that six or eight trees had
been destroyed, two of which were cut
off smoothly with jack-knives, and the
rest were broken and twisted off.
Whether done through spite or wanton
ness, we cannot say. There is ha«dly
any species of property in this county
which should be so jealously guarded
and so exempt from the hand of malice
as young trees. We notice also that
around one of the lots in town about
half the trees have lieen broken off.
We hope the Council will give us a
stringent ordinance for the protection
of trees.
W Team that Mr. Douglas, while
putting his horses in the stable on last
Sunday evening was kicked in the head
I by one of them and considerably though
not seriously hurt.

SPRING FASHIONS.
The two prevailing colors for dresses
this Spring are brown and quaker gray.
Information comes to us from the most
reliable sources that there are in the
market about thirty shades of gray and
thirty-seven shades of brown, so that
the most fastidious tastes, as well as
the most difficult complexions cau be
accommodated. If you iiave not a
bright, fresh complexion, beware of
gray, unless it be the darker shades.
But it you are so fortunate as to have
a clear, rosy complexion, nothing can
be prettier lor you ttian a dress made of
two or three shades of gr.ty, and finish
ed off at the neck with a ruche or col
lar and pink bow. Tne browns make
up beautifully—several s.iades blended
in one dress. reen will be worn moie
this Spring and Summer than last, and
wnat could make a handsomer, cheeri
er looking dress—though not becoming
to eveiy one All otuer colors will be
worn more or less, as is always the
case. Among the cotton and linen
summer goods, buff seems to Le the
prevailing color at p/esent, of which
twenty-live shades have made their ap
pearance. Nothing can be haiidsoinei
than a nicely made buff suit, and no
color in tne catalogue is oelu adapted
to all complexions, unless it is black.
.Just iuetay, at if my
is to be taken into consideration, land
who of us can say that it is not), and a
dress is wanted thht will be suitable
lor both winter ai summer, and one
that will give satisfaction as long as it
lasts, tnere is nothing equal to a blac
alpacca. A good article, that will
make a serviceable drtss, for general
wear, can be bought for from 5u to Go
cents per yard. For a better article,
alike on both sides, with a line lustre,
7i c.ts.,aud for $1 per yard, as hand
some a piece can be bought as any one
could desire. Dresses intended more
especially for the house are made with
slight trains, all the fullness being
thrown back by goring the front anil
side breadths so that they are put on
the baud entirely plain. Street dresses
just escape the ground, which is sensi
ble, and must coniaieud itself to ail la
dies who care for personal cleanliness,
or for economy of money or muscle.
Over-skirts and 1 asques are quite
popular this Spring, and polo
naise is revived, but the redingote,
comfortable as it is, has met vith dis
favor. Where no over-skirt is worn
the dress is trimmed considerably, care
being taken tnat the front and back
trimmings are entirely different. Some
times the back bit adt ss are trimmed in
narrow ruflle to th.j waist, wnile the
front Imadths have bias perpendicular
1 tuffs, or plain bias bai.ds the latter
making a plain but equally pietty
dress. The back breadths are some
times left entirely pi-tin, while the front
breadths are covered with nairow ruf
fles reaching to the basque and finished
at the sides by a puff or double ruflle.
Kilt or side plaiting is still fashionable
and puffs are qui the styl Great
care should be paid to the fit of a dress,
and to the hang of the skirt. If suc
cessful in tlase two particulars, the
dress is a success whetuer it is trim
med at all or not. Fashion at present
inclines to open sleeves—\eiy idest
ones as yet—but no telling what a day
may bring forth. Bonnets and hats,
are made to nritch the dress—often of
the same material—and the hats, as a
rule, have soft crowns. They are trim
med in ribbon of same color but of a
different shade and flowers that blend or
contrast nicely, Lace bonnets will be
worn this summer, but not as much as
straw. There aie fewer shapes to se
lect from than last year, and lathei
u.ore uniformity in the styles. Droop
ing brims are inore popular than oth
ers, for the reas in, I suppose that they
a:e generally more becoming. Ruche's
aie still in vogue for dressy occasions,
but plain linen collars with cuffs to
match, are worn ie than anything
else, ami nothing cau be prettier."
For little girls" dresses, the Gabrielh
is still a great favorite, as both econo
my and comfort recommend it. Little
boys, from three to six years old, are
wearing the Scotch suit,"with kilt and
jacket either of the same or different
material. Where they are alike plaid
goods are used for both, but when they
are different, as is the true Scotch suit,
the skirt is plaid and the jacket of some
plain material—generally black.
