To handle real estate satisfactorily,
you in imt be Hure of your man. M r.
II in. Is is a man well along in years, who
has beeu interested iu Cottage Grove
and the mines at I!ohemi:i for about lo
years, eomin here from Taconia. He
lots had much to do with the minine;
interests, but for Hi-verul years has
"iven his attention to real estate and
insurance, feeling that that was his
strong forte, and that he wan right is
attested by his clientage. Mr. Hinds
believes in the future of Cuttfcge Grove,
and is using his every effort to see that,
it is brought about in an honest and
thorough way, with un idea toward tho
future, not for a boom.
an especially large stcck for ho
small a town, and represents an in
vc3tfjient of over $1000.
tage Grove iu 185'J, but that he
is iiot quite sure, as to the year, hut
to the present time he has served 42
year as Justice, being 21 terms.
Whib tho .quire is Htiil hale and
hearty, and is able to attend to his
official duties each day, ho is not
quite feo strong as ho was about six
years a,'o when he made his last of
25 yearly trips into the IJohemiu
lJistrict. He says he wants to live
to once moro wheu the gold and
copper are beh'g turned out of tho
smtlter, run on Bohemias ore", cud
he hopes to tee that day before long.
A private undertaking that is well
worth mentioning is the establishment
in the former Scott f.'hrisman residence
of a smull hospital under the cao and
direct ;on of Mrs. M. V. J-'ifer, a trained
nurse of many years experience. It is
the intention to make thin tho stint
ing of a larger institution, us necessity
demands. The treatment which tho
Home has received speaks well for tho
Mu-eess of their handling of tho eases
put in their care.

but itcentl.v purchased Mr. Haueis

Mr. Venske owns his own building
and has established a good line of

for his business efforta.
