With this issue the Nugget en
ters upon its fourth volume. When
the present paper was evolved from
the dormant neculeus of the Mcs
sencrcr it was inueca a sniatt oc-
ginmug. By perseverance, en
ergy and frugality the paper has
been piloted through the dark hour:
of obscnritv until now it has
emerged into partial sunlight and
gotten beyond the creeping stage;
it is learning to walk and walk
erect. From the small beginning
and obscurity it has steadily grown
until now the Nugget is welcomed
in homes of many states of the
union, in Canada and the far off
Philippine Isles of the sea. Its in
fluence is not claimed to be great
nor its literary standard high, but
as the light is given the Nugget is
doing its best to disseminate it.
Cottage Grove has moved forward
very materially in the past three
years, and its future never looked
so bright as now. With the on
ward march ot our crowing in
dustries and the building up of this
future city the Nugget hopes to
keep pace. Thanks are due our
patrons for the helpful assistance of
the past. In order to go forward
with the good work a certain
amount of the wherewithal must be
forthcoming. Many of our patrons
have been notified of small de
linquencies, but have neglected to
come forward. We now again ask
that their earnest attention be given
to this matter.
OUR l-UltLW SCHOOL.
On next Saturday from two to
four P. M. is to be decided the most
momentous question ever before
the- people of Cottage Grove. Shall
we improve the opportunity to take
our place with the modern and pro
gressive communities, or will it be
with effete states of Asia?
A pound of iron ore is worth
about three cents, but when mixed
with the right portion of brains and
made into hair springs for a watch
its value is close to $100,000. Shall
Cottage Grove furnish the brain or
the three cents worth of muscle?
Citizens of Cottage Grove will
you turn 300 of your children on
the streets for ten months this year
and the same next, or will you rally
round your homes and the old flag
which stands for intelligence and
manly men and womanly women?
Shall we invite the best class of
people from the east or shall we
lose what we have? Every letter
of inquiry has as the leading ques
tion, have you a good school and
how many months per year. What
will your answer be Saturday?
There is but one kind of fish
which can swim up stream. Is
Cottage Grove to be the dead or
The debt is one of several years
standing, not of this board's cre
ation; now shall we act the part of
the foolish man, or place a small
sum iu their hands and live?
Which is the more profitable, to
educate or prosecute? Shall our
dwellings and stores be unoccupied
or shall we adopt a policy that
will fill these and build more?
On Wednesday forenoon in the
presence of the President, his cabi
net and many other dignitaries at
the White House the new postmas-
ter-neneral, Henry C. Payne of
Wisconsin was sworn in and re
Wild ripe strawberries in the

A letter from II. J. Whitcomb of
Holbrook, Mass., brings good re
ports of sales of the Crystal Con
solidated" stock. He is finding
ready sale and disposing of u large
quantity of the shares of this splen
did property at 5 cents. When
this block of 50,000 shares of
treasury stock authorized for sale
by the board of directors is all
taken, and it is going fast, u de
cided increase iu the price will be
put upon the next block to go on
the market. Mr. Whitcomb last
year spent several months of the
summer in Bohemia district, ami
the knowledge he then gained of
the mineral wealth of that district
enables him to speak knowingly of
its vast resources.

Under this high-sounding title the
same aggregation of incompetent
colored would-be players showed
up here again this week. On
their way south some months ago
they put up a very thin entertain
ment in this town. When their
street parade is over their merit is
exhausted, and the cracked and
out-of joint voices of their singers
were anything but harmonious.
The play was but a burlesque on
itself and many of the costumes
worn on that occasion were decid
edly untidy. The same manager
as now refused to pay for advertis
ing and this trip the advance agent
gave the Nugget a wide berth.
This troupe is cheap in more ways
than one and will take out of
town every nickle in sight without
leaving any adequate equivalent.
