For the fi. st time this sensou there is good sleighing, but it cannot last long. Mrs. W. Murdock, of Mnrdock, was visiting in Morris during the past week. Who are going to be our village dads? is the important question for decision next Tuesday. G. II. Munro has accepted the appoint ment of court commissioner tendered him by Judge Brown. People's caucus to morrow afternoon at Brisbiue's hall. Every qualified voter is entitled to be present. The snow storm disarranged a good many plans, and caused slight delay iu the running of trains. Those wild geese that put in an appear ance hist week were out of luck if they forgot their ulsters. Mrs. Dr. H. L. Hulburd and daughter returned Saturday from an extended visit to friends in the east. J. P. Lyons, formerly of Graceville, has with his family removed to Morris, in lending to make this his home. Ed. Ilall left last week for St. Paul in tending to accept a position !*i the employ of the American Express Company. Mr. II Moore left on a business trip to the cities the first of the week, expect ing to return either to day or to-morrow. "Yours very truly, E Ileenan, audit or," is the style in which Dr. Ileenan has been signing his name since Monday last. Mr. John Giitiuau arrived last week and will, as he expresses it, "hang out a shin gle" as soon as a suitable office can be ob tained. Our streets stood up to the racket of last week in creditable shape, and give promise of i eing in cd condition iu juicy sea sons of the year. A notice elsewhere published by the county treasurer, states that all orders presented Drior to August 28, 1881, will be paid on presentation to the treasurer. It is rumored that owing to the appear ance of diphtheria at Herman, the public schools at that place will be closed. One fatal and one serious case are reported. Mr. J. Christiansen proposes leasing his building and closing up business about April 1st, when he will move onto his farm near Frog Lake and turn granger Our fuel dealers view the situation with much complacencj*, and as one gazes in their smiling countenances he admits the truth of the adage. "It is an ill wind, etc." Mail, express and depot agents at local points along the line have no hesitation whatever in expressing opinions decidedlv unfavorable to the proposed changes in the hrrival and departure of trains. We learn that the baggage demoralizers on the St. P., M. & M. have or will peti tion the company to advance their pay. Trunks are made so strong nowadays that it is double the work to sliver them. Several of our hunters e'eaned up their shooting irons last week preparatory to the advent of spring and return of the water fowl. They have since concluded that there is yet ample time before guns are ueeded. There are none of oar citizens but who have confidence iu the progressive devel opments the coming season has in store for 31orris. A very pertinent question in thi9 connection is, who are we to place in charge of public affairs. The first blizzard of the season, a sickly apology for a consumptive "bliz"at that, swept down on us from the north last Sun day. The weather being warm and the snow light aud scarce, made the attempted storm a first class fizz e all arouud. A new advertisement from James Demp sey »p|H'urs in this issue. Mr. Dempsey has opened a new liarno-s shop iu the Krou building aud solicits a share of pub lic patronage. James is a good workman and wiil strive to give the best satisfaction. Mr. E Duulap and family leltlast week for St. Paul to complete preparations prior to starling for their new home at Miles City, Mnutana. Mr. Dunlap will stop ovr in Morris for a day or two on his road to the far we»t. Numerous friends in this locality will wish the Colonel every success iu his new field of operations. This has been an exceptionally dull week for news items, and the reporter has been sorely tempted to make several an nouncements of important social events. However, as it might be embarrassing to other parties, besides the knight of, the quill, we out of pure goodness refrain. We are informed that Mr. Bull, of Min neapolis, who represents the syndicate of capitalists who are making extensive pur chases of farm property in this and ad joining counties on the iine qt the J.. F. & D. railroad, and who now ownes the Suth erland farm, will assume direct control of this valuable piece of property, and begin farming on au extensive scale. Mr. Wil liam Morris, of this place, takes charge of the farm as foreman aud will continue to act in that capacity daring the present 3COAOI). A postal, dated at Tomali, Wisconsin, and sigued W. II. Cunniughara, contains the request that the THIBCNK announces, for the beuefit of his many claimants, his permanent location at that point. We make the auuounceuient, trusting the many claimauts may der.ve some benefit. The first business in the regular order on Monday morning was to clean off the side-walks. It is singular to note 'with what a degree of nicety the average citizen draws the boutdary line between his and his neighbors lots. We looked zealously for a solitary instance wherein to find that neighbors had cleaned off more snow than they need to have done, but our efforts were wholly futile. We discovered in several places however, strips a foot or more wide that each party had left for the other to remove. Just when the new time card goes $uto effect ou this line is something no fellow •can find out, and the information obtain ible regarding the proposed changes is equally inaccessible. Some parties who claim to know nil about it assert that the day trains are to run to Willmar and re turn, and that accomodation trains will be run from Willmar to Morris and Brown's Valley. It is said the new time card goes into effect on Sunday next. As regards the time of arrival and departure of the night express, it will pass at Morris about midnight, leaving Breckenridge at 10:45 p. m., arriving at 4:45 a. in. This will be the through train to Winnipeg. Rumors concerning the other trains are so vague and contradictory that it weuld be useless to publish them. N. B.—The new time card goes into effect next Monday and trains ^11 run as above indicated This is official. Fell Down Stairs. On Tuesday afternoon as Mrs. M. Elmer was descending the steps leading to the upper part of C. J. Croonquist's building, she slipped and fell under and through the railing to the ground, a distance of several feet. Fortunately there was considerable snow between the buildings and Mrs. El mer escaped any injury beyond the effect of the shock. It was an exceedingly nar row escape from serious injury and we are glad to auuounce that Mrs. Elmer has re covered from the effect of the fall. JL Story. It would seem that religion and ashes don't assimilate, especially when the ashes are iu a person's eyes. Now everybody knows our religious reporter is of a mild, dove like disposition, and i9 rarely-ever angry or profane, but he was worked up the other day into a perfect frenzy, aud a little slip of the foot did the whole mis chief. You see a part of his duties, the aesthetic portion, is to empty the ashes each morning, and it was while daintily per forming this grave task, dust to dust aud ashes o ashes art words of a funeral or der you know, that he stepped from grace. He had posed himself to wiudward of the ash pile aud gave the scuttle a grand flour isu, but h's dainty No. 12's slipped ou^lie fleecy mantle, and by the time the scuttle was inveited, positions were changed all rouud, the r. r. being to leeward of the falling ashes. As the wind was blowing a slill breeze the result was disastrous to our icpcrter. aud he now refuses to be comforted and mournfully sings: "Oh! what peace we often forfeit, oh! what needless p:.in we bear, rfl because we do not empty, ashes out with greater care." Teachers Institute. A state teachers institute will be held at Morris, beginning Monday March 27th aud continuing through the week. It is to be hoped that there will e a full at tendance, as these gatherings are of great value not only to the teachers but to all in terested in educational work. The teach ers especially are sure to derive benefits such as can be obtained by no other means. The interchange of ideas aud opinions, the knowledge gaiucd from experienced in structors, and the many advantages to be derived from the drill and exercise re ceived iu the rudiments aud methods of both practical and theoretical teaching, cannot but prove of advantage to all. Theu again, those interested in educational work are encouraged to greater and more liberal efforts by seeing teachers display an interest iu these institutes, as it demon strates that not only are the teachers inter ested in their duties, but that they desire to improve every opportunity afforded them for the attainment of desirable and useful knowledge, and competent instruc tion. We trust there may be a large and creditable gathering and an interesting ses sion, audit only requires co operation in order to oecure this, so all friends of the cause of education should endeavor to be in attendance. little falls A Dakota. Any items concerning the progress of construction on this line of road is always of interest to us all iu this vicinity, as we have laborpd hard to secure this promis ing outlet and are anxiously and eagerly lookiug forward to its early completion, fully satisfied that our anticipations of per manent benefits will be fully realized. From a gentleman who has recently re turned from Little Falls we learn that the right-of way through the heavy timber be tween that place and Sauk Centre has all been cleared, that the tics, piles, bridge timbers, etc., have all been got out, and that iron sufficient to iay the track to Mor ris is now at Little Falls. The center pier for tl.e bridge across the Mississippi is now completed and work is being pushed on the other piers and abutmeuts with a view of having the bridge fully completed for the passage of construction trains by the middle or last of April. Grading the timber lias made good progress during the winter and most of the heaviest work is about completed. The bridge builders with a pile driver started west from Little Falls last week, and will build bridges and the larger culverts as they come along. The company are pushing the work rapidly as possible and, weather perniit ing, tuey will have the road completed at the stipulated time. A Delightful Trip. The ladies and geutlemen from our vil lage forming the party of amateur drama tists who visited Willmar and Litchfield last week, returned from their excursion highly pleased with their trip, which they pronounce thoroughly enjoyable. At Willmar the party were entertained by the members of the Norwegian Danish Liter ary Society, and were favored wit.i a very appreciative audience. The occasion was very pleasant and the members of the par ty were strongly urged on their return to repeat the performance, but owing to other arrangements were unable to com ply ifrith the request. At Litchfield thp anything lacking which could in auy way contribute to the comfort or enjoyment of their visiting guests. The members of the dramatic society of Morris speak iu most complimentary terms of the many corleous attentions tendered them by the ladies and gentlemen of the dramatic club aud citi zens of Litchfield, and by the literary so ciety and citizens of Willmar.

It is Charter Flection. The annual charter clectiou occurs on Tuesday next, aud it wiil be ptoper to state at this lime the names of those of our citizeus who are meutioned for the of fices. For mayor or president of the council Mr. A. DeKay's name stands most prominent his many friends urgiug his candidacy on the grounds of his recognized qualifications and experience gained the past year There is another strong point iu Mr. DeKay's favor, he is a man that never seeks an office, aud while he would doubtless appreciate the honor conferred by a nomination, yet the people must be stow it voluntarily—he will never strive for it There are other names mentioned in connection with this office, and the friends of Messrs. S. Larson, It. C. Moore and R. Sutherland will doubtless present them before the caucus. There cau be but little if any choice in selecting auy name from this list. For councilors all the names above mentioned are included, aud also the following gentlemen: II. II. Wells, F. E. Newell, N. Spurr, C. J. Fisher and J. E. Dauielson. Of corrse these names are divided up on different tickets but it is very difficult to say whether or not there is any authority for the use of their names We rather think in some cases there is no such authority, as almost all the tickets mentioned represent simply an individual preference only, with one exception, that of Mr. DeKay, whose name.heads all lists as far as seen. For the other offices there will be little competition, except in the justiceship but it is very probable Mr Ilutchius will be nomiuated, as many de sire to see him retained in a position he has acceptably filled, to the satisfaction of all law abiding citizens especially. It is not unlikely there are many other aspirants for office, but the above list comprises all the names we have heard meutioued up to date. Hatieoek. Communicated. Mr. A. F.

DOWEBS. Morris, Feb. S, 1882. 011 the pro 110 use, a man can't help commenting on the curious agreeable and disagreeable varie ties of pleasaut and unpleasant weather, which during the preseut season have been dished up to us iu small doses of sunshine and otherwise. The dosts have been on the homeopathic plan to be sure, but they were composed of triple extracts aud con densed at that. During the first of lust week the weather was simply superb, be tokening the early aud immediate arrival of spring. Many were deceived by this sudden aud somewhat protracted period of warmth, and several fanners started at work preparing their land for seed. The gaping oyster aud fruit caus, the sugges live ash heap, the choice assortment of old boots and other vegetables which adorn all well regulated back yarns, bore, upon their appea ance, the tender and fra grant bloom of sweet, gentle spring time, ind as a consequence everybody was posi tive that winter had ended. We wish everybody had been right and suppose they do also, but elas for human hopes, the weather took a sudden somersault and lauded back iuto the middle of winter with a rapidity which knocked all calcula lions higher than Gilroy's kite, and send ing our weather prophets to cover with a suddenness almost alarming Everything is buried under snow, prophets, tin cans, vegetables and other rubbish, at least we suppose the prophets are, for you can't find a solitary man, out of huudreds, who predicted spring was at hand.
