BADGER LUMBER COMPANY.

Extensive Lumber Yard in Argentine. For a growing city nothing is more needed than a first-class, well-supplied lumber yard, and that mammoth combination of capital and energy known the Badger Lumber Co. has given to Argentine such an instituion. Their advertisement elsewhere will tell the but a visit to the yard will well repay the effort, though the sun is 105 degrees in the shade. Mr.

W. A. Mack is the focal manager here, and on Thursday kindly showed us through nearly an acre of lumber and building material all manufactured by the company at their mills in Wisconsin. The office is a neat structure 16x24 ane 12 feet in the clear. Just south of it is a warehouse for sash and doors which contained, at the time of our visit, about one car load and a half of these articles.

The capacity of the building is something over two cars. Immediately cast and adjoining the office, are the sheds for the storage of mouldings, and the finer grades of lumber, in infinite variety and quality, all neatly arranged and classified. The yard proper contains fully onehundred car-loads of all kinds of lumber, all dried, and the arrangement of the immense piles is such as to facilitate easy access and handling. The whole is enclosed by a neat, high and substantial fence. Roads well paved, intersect the yard at right angles, and the whole establishment shows an eye to busy, and thorough familiarity with the trade.

Argentine is proud of her mammoth lumber yard. Her citizens have no need to go outside, either for varieties or low prices. Law and Order. At last Monday's joint meeting of the Law and Order League and the W. C.

T. aggressive action was resolved upon, The Attorney Goneral was to be requested to proceed against the city oftieers for complicti in the illegal sale of liquor, and the saloon keepers under the nuisance clause of the prohibitory law. A committee of ten was appointed to wait upon the attorney general when he arrives in the city, urging immediate action, and asking an explanation of the compromising of whisky cases in this county. Adjourned to meot next Monday night. The following extracts are from the Sunday Laws: CHAPTER 31, SECTION 255.

"Every person who shall labor himself, or compel his apprentice, servant or any other person under his charge or control to labor or perform any work other than the household oflices of daily necessity, or other works of necessity or charity, on the first day of the week, commonly called Sunday, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and fined not exceeding twentyfive dollars." CHAP, 31, SEc. 257. "Every person who shall be convicted of horse racing, cock fighting, or playing at cards, or games of any kind on the first of the week, commonly called shall be deemed guilty of a misdemennor, and Gned not exceeding fifty CHAP, 31, SEC. 258, "Every person who shall expose to sale any goods, wares or merchandise, or shall keep open any ale or porter house, grocery or tippling shop, or shall sell or retail any fermented or distilled liqu on the first day of the week, commonly called Sunday, shall on conviction be adjudged guilty of a misdemeanor, and fined not exceeding fifty dollars." A Now Church Assured. Rev Wilcox, pastor of the M.

church of Argentine, informs us that the Board of Church Extensiou of the M. E. church, has made the church here a donation of $250, together with a loan of $250, with which to assist In the erection of a church building. The society has on hand in cash over $200, and there has been subscribed about $400 more, making an aggregate fund of over $1,100. This is thought to be sufficient to justify the board of trustees in beginning their building at once.

Unless a change of location more advantageous can be made, the structure will be erected upon the lot owned by the church, on State street -on the "bottoms." The subscriptions so far have been given with the above loeation in view. Auction Sale of Lots. The auction sale of lots by the Ar. gentine Investment company, which took place on Saturday last, was quite successful, some 150 lots being sold at the sale proper, and about fifty at same prices by parties subsequently. Mr.

Norton Thayer, the general manager, informs us that the prices ranged from $180 to $320, the average on all lots sold being $200 per lot. The excursion from Kansas City was quite. a success, there being five new coaches, which were sidetracked at the Radia- tor Works. Married. On June 20th, at Leavenworth, Mr.
