Albert Blanchard, our jolly clerk of
the court, spent a couple of days in
Burnstown last week. He says the
farmers Of that town expect their
wheat crop to yield from ten to fifteen
bushels per acre.
A company of emigrants from Black
Eiver Falls, Wis., are forming a colo
ny at Kampeska, Dakota. They intend
to occupy about twenty sections, and
many of them are said to have consid
erable capital.
As the temporary editor of this pa

collecting a large variety of interesting
news items, we trust our readers will
bear with all short-comings in this is
sue,and wait patiently until ye editor's
return.
County auditor E. Ericson, of Ren
ville county, called at the REVIEW of
fice one day last week. In his commu
nication to-day's REVIEW he pro
mises to make a reply to the charges
made by the Renville Timts in regard
to alleged "crookedness" in his office.
Maj. Bobleter, editor of this paper,
states in a letter dated at Chicago, the
15th inst., that there were no indica
tions of the great strike which was ex
pected to take place on that day. The
communistic parade and picnic had
been postponed until sometime next
week.
The 15th inst. was a wonderful day
for many of our sportsmen. Some who
had previously been out shooting
"snipes" and ducks, might be seen on
the above mentioned day with guns on
their shouldeis, each bent on severing
the life strings of at least ten or twen
ty prairie chickens.
E. A. Watson, formerly engaged as
traveling salesman by different whole
Bale houses of St. Paul, committed sui
cide in the Black Hills, on the 12th inst.
by taking an overdose of laudanum.
Dissipation and domestic trouble
seemed to be the cause at the sad act.
The Eagle Lake Independent puts it
a little too strong when it says that
NewUlm with a population of 2.C00,
has 52 saloons.
We have taken some pains in trying
to ascertain the exact number of the
latter but have been unable to find as
many as thirty and then the population
instead of being 2,000 is about 2,500.
A handsome photograph of Hon
James G. Blaine has been placed in
our post office. The picture was sent
to the postmaster by Hon. Wm. S
King, president of the Minnesota Ag
ricultural and Mechanical Association
which holds a grand fair at Minneapo'

We leain from a number of our citi

been palming himself off as a "star
performer," was far inferioi to Mr
Stohlmannas an actor.
We also learn that Miss Immel acted
her part of the play in a praiseworthy
manner.

Messrs. Bcesch and Pf enmnger, pro
prietors of the Eagle Mill, kindly
showed us several specimens of new
wheat received at their mill. Nearly
all so far received was of very poor
quality, the greater part being No. 3
and rejected. Nine bushels of No. 1
wheat,weighing 581bs. to the bush,, had
,been purchased of Mr. Georgius of Red
stone.
The flour obtained from the new
wheat is of good quality. We were
shown apart of a loaf of bread, which
had been made from the flour on the
day when ground, and it was as white
as the best we have seen. The piices
paid for new wheat at the mill up to
the present time was 70cts. foi No. 2,
65cts. for No.3, and 50cts. for rejected.
The weight of No. 3 and rejected has
been from 51 to 53 lbs. per bushel.

Last Sunday afternoon, in company
with the Herald editor, we took a stroll
over to the beautiful hills on the other
side of the Minnesota river wheie we
could obtain a good view of om city.
After spending a short time at a lustic
table put up for picnic purposes, we
proceeded to the residence of Mr. Hen
ry Mueller where, after haying been
kindly entertained with refreshments,
we were shown around the large and
neat orchard. The latter contains a
bout three hundred apple trees of dif
ferent kinds, a large portion of which
are bearing. Besides a large number
and variety of crab-apples there were
many large-sized ones of different spe
cies, some of which were as large and
fine as any of those usually kept for
sale at our stores.
That apples and many other kinds of
fruit can be successfully raised tliis
part of the State, is amply pioved by
the few fine orchards found among some
of the farmers in this vicinity, and for
this reason we think more attention
aught to be given to fruit raising, es
pecially by those who have their farms
so situated that the timber will shelter
their orchards from seveie storms.
