When an entertainment is announced
to appear in this city, there are two
questions which usually present them
selves to the public. 1st, Is it worthy
of public patronage? 2nd, Is it the
"style" of an entertainment to please
each individual taste? Both these
questions are answered in the affirma
tive, by Messrs. Royce & Lansing. 1st.
A companv composed strictly of ladies
and gentlemen of lefinement and cul
ture, who are thoroughly competent in
their individual lines as artists, are cer
tainly "worthy" of the patronage and
confidence of the public. Such a com
pany most assuredly have the Royce &
Lansing Bell Ringers proven themselves
to be during their eight years before

BROWN COUNTY AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY
The annual meeting of the Brown
County Agricultural Society was held
at Turner Hall last Saturday, but, ow
ing to the damp weather and bad roads,
the meeting was not very largely at
tended, only about 25 being present.
The meeting was presided over by
Mr. Fr. Fntsche, the vice president of
the society. The minutes of the Sep
tember meeting were read and approv
ed. The secretary, Mr. B. Juni, then
made a verbal repert stating the pres
ent membership of the society at 95, be
ing a net gain of 35 since the last annu
al meeting. Bernhard Marschner,
Emil Weschcke and J. Montgomery
were then admitted to membership.
Mr. C. W. Heideman submitted
REPORT OF THE TREASURER:
New Ulm, Minn., Dec. 11, 1886.
To the President and directors of the
Brown County Agricultural Society.
Your Treasurer begs leave to submit
the following statement showing the
receipts and disbursements and finan
cial condition of the society for the ear
ending Dec. 11, 1886.
Bal. cash on hand Dec. 6, '85,..$341,14

Real Estate, $351,00
Sheds, fences, etc., 233,68
Statement showing the assets and lia
bilities of the Brown County Agricul
tural Society Dec. 11, 1886.
Real Est'ep'm'n't imprVm,s,$634,68
Bill of P.
Bingha 57,6 2
H. & C, Hornburg, 9,3 5
Balance of assets over liabilities,$513,41
Assets are based upon actual pur
chase price, but it is fair to assume
that taking into consideration dona
tions made, old assets not included and
increase in value of real estate, the as
sets should be at least two hundred dol
lars more, and consequently balance of
assets over liabilities not including cash
on hand would be two hundred dollars
more. The net gain for the year after
deducting all expenses and premiums
paid would be, $175,51, with an
increased membership and all the ne
cessary improvements at our disposal.
The society is now on a sound financial
and working basis. I recommend that
the treasurer, who, as will be seen by
the foregoing report, handles a large
amount of money each year, should be
required to give bonds, as a matter of
business precaution. I ask the appoint
ment of a finance committee to exam
ine my accounts and verify the same.
All of which is respectfully submitted.
C. W. H. HEIDEMAN, Treasurer.
