MIZPAH, Minn., July 22.-Considerable building is being done or being planned. A village fire hall, 24 by 70, two-story, is well under way. Frank Foster and F. E. Comstock have each commenced buildings, one for a feed store and the other a billiard hall. The Star hotel is being raised one story higher, and lumber is on the ground to build the Mizpah hotel more than twice its present size. The depot will be finished in about a week's time. The Message has a large addition to its building nearly completed. A. L. White and S. Buckmaster each have lumber on the ground for substantial buildings.
