The St. Paul Daily Globe can hereafter be found for sale at the post office. All good Democrats

"Belle" wore a smile as broad as a wash-tub last week and it was quite becoming. We were in hopes
it might have remained there, but alas.
Our public school is progressing nicely under the leadership of Miss Susan Russell and Miss Callie Welch.
Each department has a large attendance.
Chas. H. Winham has purchased the corner residence of Mayor L. D. Carter for $650. It [illegible:begins?]

The social at Donaldson's was well attended considering the rain. We hope our people will not be afraid of
another small shower when there is a social in town, but attend.
J. H. Humel & Co. are packing up and getting ready to move. They are going to open up in West St. Paul and
we are sorry to loose them, but we wish them success at the Capitol city.
J. O. Myhre's new store is about completed. Mr. Malbery, of Austin, is applying paint to the counters and shelving,
etc., and it is one of the nicest store rooms in the country and one that Lyle may be proud of.
There will be a Temperance lecture at the Congregational church by Mr. W. E. Stanley, of Austin. He is an eloquent

The Union Co-operative creamery of Union township will be removed to Lyle. Our city council has donated $500 and a large sum
has been raised by private subscription and makes them a point to make Lyle their home. This is just what we are in want of and we are proud of our enterprising citizens and council.
