Sheiriffs Holm of Meeker County and
Schmid of this county captured James
Martin, the man who stole four horses
of Mr. Hagelund, a farmer living in
Meeker County, near Currie last week.
Martin is an inoffensive looking fellow
and judging by his appearance one
would be almost ready to believe that
the horses ran away with him. They
brought Martin and the horses to this
place and on Friday took them to Mee
ker county. Sheriff Holm can congrat
ulate himself upon having secured the
co-operation of Sheriff Schmid, for
without the services and knowledge of
the county of the latter he would have
"had but a very poor show of success.

While driving to his home, in town
Cottonwood, during Saturday's rain and
hail-storm, Fred Walther had a narrow
escape from being killed. The hail
frightened the horses and they ran into
a ditch, the shock throwing jMr. Wal
ther from the wagon and directly un
der one of the front wheels, the wheel
passing over his right shoulder and leg.
He managed to hang ontc one of the
lines and his wife, who was in the wa
gon, secured the other. Their united
efforts resulted in stopping the horses
after a short run. Strange to say no
bones were broken and Walther es
caped with but a few bruises to remind
him of his narrow escape.
Recently one of our carpenters took
the contract to erect a building for a
farmer some distance from New Ulm.ment
After everything was arranged it struck
the carpenter that he owned a cow
which no one but himself could milk.
Here was an obstacle to his fulfilling
the contract. The cow had to be milked
twice a day and the distance from town
to the farm was to far for him to travel
morning and evening without loosing
too much time. After brooding over
the matter for some time a bright idea
struck him. He made the farmer agree
to deliver the milk to town every morn
ing and took the cow to the farmers
home with him. All are happy except
the farmer who has to deliver the lac
teal fluid daily.
Wm. Silverson of Cincinnati, and
Chas. Silverson and H. R. Reed of this
place have formed a partnership and
will soon erect a mill at Nicollet, Minn,
providing they are assured of a suffi
cient supply of water. The Phelps
Well Company have the contract for
driving the well and feel confident of
securing the water. They have driveu
175 feet so far and expect to go 75 feet
deeper, for ajgood supply. As soon as
the building of the mill is assured, the
railroad company will construct side
track for them. Mr. W. Silverson has
arrived from Cincinnati with his fam
ily and will supervise the work of con
struction. Mr. Reed, headmiller of the
Eagle Roller Mill of this city, will soon
leave with his family for Nicollet, but
will be in New Ulm every few days, as
he will retain his present position with
the Eagle Mill Ce. The mill when built,
will be of the capacity of 300 barrels
per day,running day and night,and giye
employment to twenty men.
Last Thursday the citizens of Duluth
felt a heavy earthquake shock, but later
it was learned to have been a terrific
explosion of nitro-glycerine at Spirit
Lake, eight miles front the city. Eight
thousand three hundred pounds of the
explosive were stored in a wooden
building 50x30 feet, and where this
stood there is now a hole 100x60 feet
and fifteen to forty feet deep. The
laigest piece of the building found is
ten inches long. A three-inch cast iron
pipe was twisted round a tree, and bits
of iron and wood were found a mile
from the spot. Every window pane in

broken, and one house, which stood

|j,The artesian well committee has se
cured Lot 13 Block 104 north for the
purpose of testing for a good and suffi
cient supply of water for the needs of
the city. The site is as good a one as
could be secured and will answer for
all practical purposes. It was the wish
of the committee to locate the plant en
school house square and for that purpose
they asked for 50 by 75 feet of ground
corner of First North and Washington
streets. If granted a lease of the
grounds the committee agreed to enter
into a contract to supply the school and
grounds all the water needed, provided
of course that a sufficient supply was
found. Some members of the Board of
Education, either through a mistaken
sense of duty or through pure cussed
ness, prevented this idea from being car
ried out. They refused to concede the
corner grounds Jbut offered to use their
influence,or at least not oppose the com
mittee, in securing the ground located
near the center of the block on Wash
ington street. As this meant an addi
tional expense in laying water mains
and as the opposing members of the
board did not seem to see the advanta
ges secured to the school and grounds
by a FREE supply of water, the commit
tee decided it best to purchase a piece
of ground and go to work at once.
The contract for driving the well was
given to the Phelps Drive Well Co. of
Minneapolis and work on the well was
commenced yesterday morning.
The opposing members of the board
may have acted upon their own
convictions, but they certainly did not
act in accordance with the wishes of
the majority of citizens. By accepting
the munificent offer of the committee
they could have utilized the water in
supplying the wants of the square with
but very little additional expense. If
they should want aDy water now they
will have to pay for it and tax payers
must bear the expense.
A number of the globes of our ttree
lamps have been broken by boys "with
sling shots and to prevent^ thejrecur
rence of this,|the city authorities have
instructed thejpolice force to arrest all
boysjorjany one else'using them within
the city limits. Parents are requested to
caution their chillren against using
sling-shots as the city authorities are
determined to prosecute all offenders to
the full extend of the law.
