The news of the drowning of an ex
cursion party on Lake Minnetonka,
reached Wadena Monday morning.
It appears that a party consisting of
Kx-Mayor Rand and wife and three
children, John R. Coykendail and wife
and child, Robert Hussey and Geo.
McDonald, all of Minneapolis, went
out to the lake Sunday to take a little
excursion on tho water. They went
out oa a small steam boat, the Minnie
Cook, and when the storm came up in
the afternoon she was swallowed up
in the treacherous water of the lake
and the whole party was drowned.
Ex.Mayor Rand and John Coykendail
were two of the most prominent busi
ncss men aad respected citizens of
Minneapolis. It is, indeed, a sad
affair. Mr. Coykendail was Mayor
Rand's son-ia-law, and thus eight out
of one family perishad in a single
moment. The bodies were not all
found until Tuesday, The funeral
services will be held this afternoon.

The Nation was founded in July, 1865
in recognition of the new order of
things which was sure to follow the
end of the war and the abolition of
slavery. It at once espoused the
cause of pure, unpartisan administra
tion of the national government and
the present condition of civil service
reform is owing to it more than to
any other instrumentality. It has
been conducted, in its two leading
departments, politics and literature,
by the same editors from the first
number, and holds to-day, as for
the past twenty years, the first rank
in each. It is the medium of the most
thoughtful and cultivated discussion
in the country—is, in fact, the only
truly national journalistic forum. Its
foreign correspondence is nnrivaled.
Its book reviews (by^ the leading
scholars of the country 'possess the
highest authority. Each number
contains a careful new3 summary,
and the bound volumes are prized as

"We have received a copy of the
annual Catalogue of the State Normal
School at St. Cloud, Minn., for the
school year ending May 27,1885, with
annual Circular for the year 1885-80.
It contains the names of all its officers,
its faculty of instruction and students
for 1834-85. The pamphlet contains a
brief description of how the institu
tion is conducted and what is required
of students of the different courses
taught how diplomas are issued sug
gestions to applicants, etc. It states
that during the the sixteen years of
its existence it has graduated nearly
three hundred teachers. The object
of the school is to train teachers for
the public schools of the State, and
teachers graduated at this schooi have
a great advantage over those who have
not, in securing good situations.
Requftst^for copies of the catalogue
should bs addressed to T. J. Gray,
Pres't, St. Cloud.
A great change has comc over this
country during the past two years.
The farmer of two years ago is not
the farmer of to-day. Even in the
past year a great change has taken
place. Farmers that one year ago
ihad large bills against them on the
books of our merchants, have but
very little charged up against them
to-day. They are not buying much,
and what they do buy they are paying
cash for. They are not buying their
pork, horse feed, butter, etc., this
year, as they have done heretofore.
They are producing what they are
obliged to consume, thus making the
country self sustaining. They are
supplj'ing our butchers with beel
cattle, hogs, sheep and poultry. None
have to be imported. On the other
hand quite a number of car loads of
cattle have already been shipped
from Wadena this summer to Monta
na. One year ago there was consid
erable butter shipped into Wadena.
This year thero has been none. Our
formers have supplied the market
with a better quality than could be
imported. Oats and potatoes have
been shipped from here during the
past year in quite large quantities.
Thus money has bcou brought into
the country instead of being carried
out of it. Although our farmers have
not gone into diversified farming on
a large scale, they have adopted that
method in a measure and are now
beginning to realize the benefits that
are derived therefrom. When they
sell their wheat this fall they will not
have to go immediately to the mer
chant and pay for pork, horsefeed,
etc., that has already been consumed.
Of course wheat is the staple crop in
this country, but when the farmer
raises such other cereals as he is
obliged to consume, although he
raises no more there is some hope for
him. But away with a farmer that
buys his horse feed, his pork, butter
and eggs. Such farmers will never
succeed in any country. It is en
couraging to note the steady progress
that is being made in the right
direction, and if our farmers continue
in this way this portion of the
country will soon be one of the most
flourishing farming communities in
the northwest. Our soil i3 good and
if utilized in the right way larraing
can be found to be very remunera
tive. The wheat crop this year
promises to be one of the best that
this country has ever produced, and
with this fact in view, the prospects
for better times arc indeed flattering
Grain never looked better at this
season of the year,
Corn will be a fair crop it we have
no early frosts.

meadows being flooded so long.

There was a young folks party at
the residence of Mr. Wm. Anderson
Tuesday night. It was a birthday
party given by Miss Lizzie and most
of her young friends were there. A
few games of croquet were played
before supper. When the young
hostess announced supper, the lads
and lasses tripped gaily into the din
ing room where all did justice to
the well filled table. After supper
out-door games were indulged in
until dark, when all adjourned to the
barn and games and dancing filled'
the program until midnight. The
next move was t© the house Songs,
recitations, &c., filled the next hour,
the accompaniments to the songs
being played by one of the young
ladies in a manner excelled by few.
After singing Home Sweet Home the
folks departed for their several
homes, well pleased with the nights
entertainment. 1 he thanks of the
whole comp:«ny are due to Mr. Wm,
Thompson senior, for the music
rendered on the flute in his own
inimitable style for dancing. Also
