This feature is very unusual to western towns we know of semcely a. town on the line of the N. P, railroad west ol s, that is not far in advance of the country surrounding it. Not so with the village of Wadena. Busi ness is not overdone here and our present agricultural resources would easily support town of double its popul ilion. Notwithstanding it has two good hotels, another one is to be built on the coi ner of Front and Second St., east of THE FAIJMKII office, 34x50, which will be conducted strictly on the metropolitan order. It is going to he erected by Messrs. Oatrander Bros., who arc also build ing a stable !0xG0 to be run in con nection with their hotel.

VOL. IT. NO. 22. lie Situation. Every day our streets are crowded with teams, and the village is making rapid strides towards the front rank, of the most .progres sive towns in this upper country. This is a fact whiuli cannot be denied, and yet there arc men in this very comity who are looking favorably on the scheme of a political ring which has been organized for the express and wen avowed intention of BEATING Wadena. What a suicidal step for the county is this. As an evidence of this, look at the ticket which has been placed in the field by a con vention run in the interests of this clique. Not a nomination of any consequence has been awarded Wadena the legal seat of jus tice and largest town of the county. In view •f these undeniable facts the citizens of Wadena and vicinity, in order to protect the best interests of the county and them selves against this disgraceful and hoggiuh combination, hereby place the following ticket in the field, believing it will meet the approval of ...

A High-Toned Cook. Mrs. Vanderw^ter has lately expe rienced a great doal of trouble in securing a good servant girl. The last one she had was told to boil an egg in the coffee, and she put it in whole. On another occasion when iustructed to stuff the ducks with onions and potatoes she put them in whole. She also made apple pies in a similar manner. Her predecessors were equally negligent and ignorant, and Mrs. Vanderwater determined to have a col ored girl at all hazards. It was with the intention of securing one that she came to New York recently. She went to an intelligence office and asked so be shown some of the best specimens in stock. A burly girl of thirty-two stepped forward, and the following dialogne took place: ''Can you cook in a French style?" "Yes, mum."' "Can you get up German dishes "Yes, mum?" "I suppose you area chureh member?" "I'se one of dem suah." "You have no objections to splitting wood?" "Not any."' "What time do you wake up in the morning?" "Five o'clock an...

A QUIET HOUSE. My house is quiet now, so stiil! All day 1 hear the ticking clock. The hours are numbered clear and shrill, Outside the robins sing and trill. The sunshine sleeps upon the sill, My house is quiet now, so still! But silence breakes ray heart! I wait, And waiting yearn for call, or knock To hear the creaking of the gate, And footsteps coming soon or late To greet me sitting desolate. The silence breaks my heart- 1 wait! All through the lonely house I go, Ftfom hall to hall, from room to room. What should I seek to find or know? I The brooding shadows spread and grow, The startled echoes mock me so, As through the lonely house I go. Ah! blessed Heaven, if I could hear Sweet noises in the tranqnil gloom, Soft broken songs and laughter clear, Then joyous tumult, glad and near, That vexed me many a happy year— Ah! blessed Heavens, if I could hear! Ah! blessed Heaven, if once once more My longing eyes might see the stain Of little footprints on the floor, And grouped like ro...

The Wandering Singer's Lay. To live the life of happy birds, That wing their way from tree to tree, To roam unconscious as the herds. Ah, this is to be truly free. These humble lives arc unto God They praise Him iu their rest So I will press the verdant sod. As near to the maternal breast. And I will spend this summer time Untrammeled as the wilding thrush Or string a little idle rhyme, Like yon poor sparrow in the bush. For who would grieve to shMne the day. Or who would 'plain when nights are fair? Back to the smallest autumn gray, Back to your cell, curmudgeon Care. Though p«or, now wealthy is my part, The happy gods in order bring Though poor and low, the royal heart Sits ever like a crowned king. The purple and gold are mine, What shame to mourn if none will praise? I'll quaff of the wild berry's wine, Nor scorn the world that flouts my|lays. But who would guess my princely state? Can tattered garments such reveal 1 am not poor with those who hate, And all are noble as'they fee...

A BUMMER LONGING. %.4 must away to wooded hills and Tales. Wkere broad, slow streams flow cool and Silently, And idle barges flap their listless sails Forme the summer sunset glows and fades, And green fields wait for me. I long for shadowy forests, where the birds Twitter and chirp at noon froia every tree. I long for blossomed leaves and lowing herds And nature's voices say, in mystic words, "The green fields wait for thee." I dream of uplands where the primrose shines, And waves her yellow lamps above the lea Of tangled copses swung with trailing vines Of open vistas, skirted with the tall pines, "Where green fields wait for me. I think of long, sweet afternoons, when I May lie and listen to that distant sea, Or hear the breezes in the reeds that sigh. Or insect voiccs chirping shrill and dry, In fields that wait lor me. These dreams of summer come to bid me find The forest's shade, the wild'bird's melody, While summer's rosy wreaths for me are twined, While summer's fragrance li...
