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
the J.. F. &
D. railroad, and who now ownes the Suth

this valuable piece of property, and begin
farming on au extensive scale. Mr. Wil

the farm as foreman aud will continue to
act in that capacity daring the present

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.

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.

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 pro­
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.
