Good times stimulate building. —Tho crowded state of our columns last week preventod our calling attention to the statement of the Citizens State Bank. This young candidate for public favor has prospered beyond the most sanguine expectations of its originators.

It makes little difference what is paid for real estate in this section, somebody is soon ready to "raise tho bid." A title to real estate hereabouts is a i;old mine when value is constantly increasing. A year ago S. C. Perry offured his far JI in vain for 955 per acre. Now he has sold it for 960 and there is no doubt but it would sell for 965 iu less than another year. —Some of our poople thought war had beet declared with Chili last Cat urday night about 10:10, and that the bombardment of Postville had been commenced. But Sunday morning thoy found that it was only a giant fire cracker which was oxplodod in the doorway of Stroebcl's shoo stort, on Green street. It was quito a serious explosion, however, as it demolished six panes of glass on either side of the doorway, and made quito a bill to be settled. The throwers of the "bomb" had no idea that any damage would be done except to startle the tbrao or four occupants of the store. Such explosives will be used with more care here after.

No | matter what the aggregation of wonders there, no matter what the Eiffel- Tower-like ehiof exhibit may bo, the city itself will make ths roost surprising presentation. Those who go to study the world's progress will find no other result of human force so wonderful extravagant, or peeuliar. Those who carry with them prejudices begotten out of political rivalry or commercial envy will discover that, however well founded seme of the criticism li been—especially as to the spirit of the Chicagoaas—the development of the place has not followed tho logical deductions. Those who go clear-minded, expecting to see a great city, will Cod one different from that which any precedent has led them to look for." The slew Opera House.
