Mr. Peter Johnson to Miss Lotta Johnson, all of Donuelly. Minn. Mike Igo is puzzled over the conun drum: How can they pay 10 cents more a bushel for wheat in Hancock than they can in this market? Give it up. The editor and all hands in the TRIBUNE office have been busily en gaged on job work the past week, consequently the local department of of the paper has beeu somewhat neglected. They do say that W. K. Walker, alias "Frog Lake Walker," has the best piece of wheat in the county. Tliis is what we are told by those who have seen it. Good joke on the old Pennsylvania Democrat. A tea for the benefit of the M. E. Social Union, will be given at the residence of Mrs. J. D. Good on Tuesday evening next. Supper served from 5:30 to 8 o'clock, at the small sum of twenty-five cents. All are cordially invited. There were a good many old soldiers in town last Saturday, and after mingling witli them, as we did for quite a while, we could'nt help thinking that we had "gray-backs' on us. Nothing personal intended, of course. Charley Wintermute of this city says that if our farmers who have borBes In pastures fenced with barbed wire, would plow a furrow or two around the pasture inside the fence, the danger would not be as great as without. The stock will be able to distinguish the line at night and thus avoid being hombly mangled, if not killed. Here is a useful suggestion 14 When buying fruit cans see that they are not made of roofing tin, which Is coated with lead, and is slow but sure poison. They should be made of bi'ight tin which is "harmless, pro yided the fruit is emptied out of the cans as soon as opened. The differ ence will be easily told, as the leaded tin has a dull look, while th® bright tin looks like burnished silver. One is poisonous and the other is barm less." We noticed ten fine young mares passing through town on Saturday. On inquiring, we found that they \yere from thp Minnesota Agrioul tural Company's farm, near Hancock. These animals ranged in age from tour to six years, nine of them being high grade Percherons, and one high grade English Shire. They werepur chased by Mr. J. L. La Valley, who makes his headquarters at "WShpetoh, and are intended for his customers who reside between that city and Moorhead.

Thanks for those turnips, Milo. A young lady of very prepossessing appearance arrived at the home ot Mr. and Mrs. Geo. T. Elsham on the 8th inst. Since then George has been too proud to even recognize his form er every day acquaintances. Wlii.e talking with Commissioner Pushor on Saturday he said his crops were looking well, and if we didn't believe It, to come out and see tor ourself. We shall do it. Don't like to take the word of an old soldier no how. Comrade R. J. Hail was in town Saturday. He says that crops in his vicinity never looked better than now. in fact, he said that they looked as promising as auy reason able person could ask for. He pre dicts an excellent crop of wheat aud oats in Stevens county. By a letter received a few days since we learn that our old friend 8. W. linger, Esq., formerly a resident of Campbeil this state, but for the past few years a resident of Ottawa, 111,, has returned to Campbell and opened a law office at that place. Glad to welcome you back, "Si," to Minnesota, the best state in the Union. Mr. Ruger is owner of quite a large tract of laud near Campbell. T. J. Moore has juot received a nice line of ladies' and children's fine shoes. Here is some good advice by Bob Burdette, which it would be well for some of our Morris boys to heed: "Don't swear. It is not an evidence of smartness or worldly wisdom, Auy fool can swear—aud a great many fools do it. Ah, if I could gather useless, uncalled for, ineffec tive oaths that have dropped along the pathway of my life, I know it would, move the stumbling block from my inexperienced feet, and my heart would be lighter by a ton than it is to-day, but if you are going to be a fool just because other men have been, my son, what a hopeless fool you will be." At a recent meeting of the busiuess men of Ortonville, called for the pur pose of considering the project of ex tending aid to the Northern Pacific railway company, to secure the ex tension of the Little Falls branch of that road from Morris via Ortonville to Chamberlain, the following reso lution was adopted: Resolved, That we the citizens of Ortonville pledge our hearty co-oner ation with those engaged the fur therance of said enterprise. A committee consisting of F, Bhu maker, P. Clarke and D. E. Eyre was appointed to act in conjunction with similar committees from the towns and cities on the proposed route. Well, well, who would have be iieved it—that there are not enough Republicans in Minnesota who can be induced to fill the different state offices? But such is the fact never theless, or at least we presume that such is the case, from the fact that our worthy county Auditor, Geo. M. Giltinan, has been selected to fill the position of chief weighmaster at St. Paul. And we are not going to kick about it either, for if the Republican management of the state has been forced to the necessity of giving an office to a Democrat on accout of the scarcity of Republicans, we know of no one we should prefer to Mr. Giltl nan. He is a genial, courteous gen tleman, and we in common with a large number of our citizens regret to have him leave town. Headquarters Moore's. for Tea at T. J. A Picnic Party.

Hulburd & A Trip to Traverse County. On Monday last we made a trip to the northern and eastern part of Traverse couuty. Stopping at liniali station, we drove from there six miles or more southwest, and visited the farms of John Davidson, James Den nery, Gus. Davidson, John Morr'aou, Charley Streeter, Augustus Davidson, our own farm and others in that vicinity. Ou all of these farms the crops are looking splendid, and the men, who but a IOW years ago had only a yoke of oxen, a sod barn and a shanty, now are the owners horses, have ol fine good frame barns and dwelling houses, fifteen to twenty five head of cows and Other cattle, and all art DOINU WELL. In no part of Minnesota that we have visited has there been a more marked change than in the section of which we are now describing. And this change Is on the side of SUBSTANTIAL IMPROVEMENTS. Every man we talked with expressed himself well satisfied with his sur roundings and with the progress he had made. The truth is the soil of Tintah township Is not excelled by any in Minnesota. A few years ago it was considered too wet, but cultivation has made it all right, and now, on those rich bottom lauds, the finest grasses and the most magulfieent crops of whoat are grown. THE TINTAH FARM. We passed over this great farm and examined the magnificent crops ot wheat and oats now growing on it. This tarm, composed of ten sec tions, we think, was formerly owned by Mr. J. E. Henry, a genuine New Hampshire yankee, but last season ho presented the farm, with its cattle, horses, farm machinery and all to his two daughters, Mrs. Nuckolls, of Walipeton, aud Mrs. Putnam, of Tin tah, and Messrs. Putnam and Nuck olls now carry on this IMMENSE FARM. Ou this larm are 120 head of milcli cows, 500 head of other cattle, about 100 head ot horses, and 100 hogs. This season they have about 2,000 acres of wheat, 600 acres of oats, and 150 acres of millet There are on the farm three two story barns, capable of storing a hun dred tons of hay each in the upper story and each accommodating 200 head of cattle or more. One barn is for horses, one for cows, and one for other cattle. These barns are the most complete in their arrangements of auy we have ever seen. Aside from these large barns there are several other cheaper barns aud sheds for the protection of cattle The farm usually produces enough hay for the stock, except in some dry seasous, when it becomes necessary to secure a quantity from adjoining land. One great thing this farm is blessed with, and that is an abundant supply of GOOD WATEB, which is obtained by sinking wells only 35 feet in depth, and the water flows to some 12 or 15 inches above the surface. The water for the use of the railroad is supplied from one of these wells. The farm is supplied with all the necessary machinery for running it: Steam threshers, improved haying implements, binders, &c. This sea son there will be sixteen self-binders in operation on the farm, and a good sized ABMY OF MEN will be employed in the harvest field and in doing other work Located at Tintah station, and be longing to the proprietors of the farm, is a very completely arranged CBEAMEBY, supplied with a 7-horse power engine, a separator capable of separating the cream from 800 pounds of milk an hour. The creamery is furiAslied with the milk ol 120 cows, owned on the farm, and 700 POUNDS OF BUTTEB made weekly, which is principally sold in Duluth and Minneapolis. The weight of one milking Is on an average about 1,400 pounds. The Holstein, Jersey, and the best grades of native cows are kept. The milk, after being separated from the cream, is given to the calves. There is a small elevator at Tintah station, the property of the pro prietors of the tarm. There is also quite a large hotel there, owned by Mr. Henry, former proprietor ot the farm, which is run in an acceptable manner by Mr. Prescott, I'he Fjvansville hranch of tiie Mani toba roafl has its terminus at Tintah, and a routld house is located there, and also four or five side-tracks. The will probably be located at this station ii} the ueay future a flour mill for doing custom work, also a more extensive elevator aud a general sup ply store, all of wjilph wjlj undoubted ly do A KQ°) biisineas. A Woman't Discovery. "Another wonderful discovery has been made and that too by a lady in this county.

EDITOR:—Persons who but oc casionally visit Cyrus may come to the false conclusion, that our little village with its surroundings, is not subject to the law of mutation. A few authentic words from persons who "know better," proclaimed by the MOKKIS TRIBUNE throughout the land, will perhaps bo sufficient to change sutfh minds. There are, how ever, objects here who, fortunately, do not change. I refer to two, almost three merchants. From Monday mornings to Saturday nights, always pleasant, accommodating aud reli able. They are persons who, in the sweat of their brow, have made their fortune, consequently know the cost of the farmer's dollar, for which they endeavor to give "value received." They are very different from some of their neighbors, who never earned a farthing of the capital they are boast ing of and feasting on. Their silks and plushes, their beelsteak, pics and whisky jugs, are paid for with the fruit ot the sweaty brow of others, or by Uncle Sam, who is made to be lieve that they ruined their health in his service in love and for the pro tection of their country. We should justly expect, that those who have fought for the deliverance ot their enslaved fellow men and for the re storation of peaee, at large, would still aim to benefit their community in preservation of peace and Iu pro motion of all that is noble and good. Hero we are only expecting a change. But there are really cuanges taken place iu and about our town too great to escape the observation of a keen eye and mind, and too important not to be mentioned. We shall pass by B.'s and C.'s houses, with nearly half of the west end aud two thirdsof the roof painted, but behold the definite number of elegant dwelling houses immigrated, erected or transformed here these last months. Never before lias our vil lage, in so short period of time, to such an extent, been magnified and beautified, as this summer. While previous no sign of building was to be seen west ot 1st street, large man sions are now toweri'ig on 9th or 10th street, supposed to be. But con sidering the anticipated prospect of Cyrus, we justly conclude, that what has been accomplished here this sea son, is but a microscopic begining to what is supposed will "come to pass" in the nigh future. Main street will evidently soon be located 1-5 mile north of where it now is. Our present general and special stores will then have to serve as first and last cnance establishments for the farmers "of the south." Some of our present merchants, I fear, have already seen their first and last chance in Cyrus. Expansion and swing bridges are also expected to be seen over the Chippewa river, where steam boats and sailing vessels, with their cargoes, may find access to our city. But back r.gain to the present. Few of the towns and countries of the west, have beeu so highly honored as Cyrus and vicinity, at late, won derful indeed! Some smaller, now greater than Uncle Sam, in person, has paid us a pleasant visit. His children had become forgetful of their fathers command, rights and power, or disloyal they had forsaken their legitimate ruler, tour years ago chosen a protector, "who is no more." Uncle Sam demanded loyalty. Like the "rich man who had a steward," he says to the one: "How is it that I hear this of thee?" Come, follow me! "Give an account of thy steward ships for thou mayest no longer be steward." To the other he says: "Take that thine is, aud go thy way." The effect was: Iver Thompson is our new P. M. in Cyrus, and Sam. Olson at Nash. The others were de prived of their title and trust. This is also a change which probably soon will be made elsewhere. A Cyrusian who has been absent but a year wiil on his return, discover other great changes, especially "in the country." He will find himself almost "a stranger in his own land." On entering a number of the oldest and well known houses, he will meet unknown faces of new occupants, the greater number of which proves to be an honor aud a blessing to society. Even the parsonage is occupied by an entirely new pastor aud family. But there is something still more strange to be mentioned, Even U\ well known familiar you will notice a peculiar change of names, either of the "old man," the "old lady" or some of their children. The "old widow" with her familiar cutty pipe of the saixia age, if not older, is in troduced to youly a spryyoung man, her husband, as Mrs. So and So, Else where the old latty, with a pipe in her month, vviil iutrocluee her daughter or daughters to a youug man or to young men, who used to "go aud see them," as Mrs., instead as before, Miss. We can easily draw a conclu sion as to the effect on the movers. The universal practice of young men in taking farms on shares principally accounts for these many family changes. But the most r,stonishing of all is not yet mentioned. You will perchance have occasion to call at certain houses to inquire for the "old man." But beware of saying: "Is Mr. N. N. at home?" you are liable not to be understood or to be harshly addressed: You mean "the chair man," "the judge," justice of the peace, &c. The children, including the baby, seem to believe that the name chairman, &c., is identical wth "papa." We are tpld that no office or title is hereditary in Pope and Stevens coun ties. Would it were a fact. But what will be the consequence in regard to the children? They will have to change too, accustom themselves to say papa. These are the changes taken place iu Cyrus and vicinity. If these do not suffce, Mr. Editor, I shall not write to you ag in, until double the changes have taken place with as. A. PEASANT.

Fort Crawford Mineral Springs. The two oldest cities in Wisconsin are Green Bay and Prairie du Cliien. The latter was long a well-known frontier trading post, and was at an early date the site of a United States garrison. In the war of 1812, it was captured by British forces, and held till the close of hostilities. From 1815 to 1835, the United States kept a large garrison here, aud built Fort Crawford, a fortress of large area and great strength. The town possesses remarkable mineral springs, one of which has a depth of a thousand feet and furnishes an inexhaustible supply of water. It has wonderful healing powers in all rheumatic troubles and diseases of the liver and kidneys, and some astonishing cures have beeu effected by it.

WORLD MEASURES.—The astonish, ing statement was lately made to the French Academy of Sciences, by M. de Malarce, that only about 42,000,000 inhabitants of the civilized world have neither metric nor decimal sys tems of weights and measures. In 1887, the metric system was compul sory In countries aggregating in pop ulation 302,000,000 an increase ot 53,000,000 in ten years optional in countries with a population of 97,000, 000 and legally admitted in principle and partially applied in countries having a population of 395,000,000— an increase of 54,000,000 in ten years. The metric system is thus legally recognized by 794,000,000 people and China, Japan and Mexico—with an aggregate population of 474,000,000— have systems that are decimal but not metric. Deafness Can't Be Cured by local application, as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure deaf ness, and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mucus lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube gets inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed, Deaf ness is the result, aud unless the in flamation can be taken out and this tube restored to Its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed forever nine cases out of ten are caused by catarrh, whioh is nothing but an in flamed condition of the mucus sur fftC6S» We will give one hundred dollars for any case of Deafness, (caused by catarrh,) that we cannot cure by tak ing Hall's Catarrh Cure.
