The.sky rockets fired on the evening

Editor Strasser should not be his own

W. E. Wooley of the Northwestern

in the city Wednesday. He was on his
way to Sleepy Eye to straighten up some
difficulty about an order for cuts sent in
by Hamliton^nd Cox, the young men
who wrote up New Ulm several months
ago. It seems the young men collected
for the cuts from business men and then
neglected to pay for them
On the 17th. of this month the Noble

by local talent assisted by J. F. Milton,
who played the leading role, with the

The Springfield post-office came with
in $10 of being a presidential one last
quarter. Had the business men there"
taken just a little pains to put their let
ters in the office instead of mailing them
on the train, the advance in grade would
have been made, and the many advanta
ges resulting from a presidential office
would have accrued to the citizens. of
Springfield. All these little acts either
help or hurt a town.
The-average watch chain is about a
foot long and it is two hundred and sev
enty feet around the Masonic Block. F.
W. Hauenstein received from a large
New York jewelry establishment this
morning a lot of gentlemen's gold watch
chains, which if hooked together would
make one chain for*a fence to go entirely
around this building. The combined
strength of these chains would easily
move the largest building in N^ew Ulm
In this lot are fifty varieties.
IsTThe returns rua'de by Assessor Schil
ling show that New Ulm has an assessed
real estate valuation of $ 1-23,107 and a
personal pioperty valuation of $212,075.
There are 394 horses and mules, valued
at $17,435, and 515 cattle valued at $4,
929. There are no sheep but 41 hogs
and 203 dogs. Of pianos there are 48,
sewing machines 438, watches and clocks
741 and diamonds and jewelry to the
value of $100. We have 780 buildings
and 775 personal property tax-payers.
We hear Albert Blanchard, of New
Ulm, spoken of as a candidate for the
office of Judge of Probate. We say
spoken of because at New Ulm the oth
er day we heard it discussed somewhat
and on the train a west end man made
the same suggestion. Mr. Blanchard
himself may know nothing about the
matter but if his ears tingled any last
week he may now know for the first time
hat it was about. The fact that Mr.
B. is a Republican will not bar him from
the race.—Sleepy Eye Dispatch.
On Thursday night three men worked
the nut shell game on a farmer at Kaso
ta. Tivo of the party engaged them
selves in a game of cards, while a thiid,
appaient stranger, offered to bet$250 on
the game. He dives into his pocket to
put up the "long green," but to his dis
appointment he finds he is short. So he
stepped \»p to the farmer and asked him
to kindly lend him the requiied amount.
The unsuspecting mralite presented lih
pocket-book with $250, but his benefac
tor relieved him before he had time to
catch his breath.
While on his way home Monday night
Mike Brandel, a faimer living east of
town, A\ as assaulted by four men who
struck him on the head with a blunt in
strument, making a cut of o^er five inch
es on the side and top of the head. He
was robbed and thrown into a ditch and
left for^dead. The deed was done about
10 o'clock, and about 12 o'clock he came
to himself and wandered to the home of
James Addy, who brought him to town
for medical aid. Dr. Marcellus dressed
the wound and gives it as his opinion that
it is a wonder that the skull was not
fractured. At this writing the injured
man is doing well.—Sleepy Eye Herak1,
'•Der Meineidbauer" was presented fr
the second time on Sunday evening to a
very fair audience. The players appeared
to even better advantage than on the first
occasion and in the cases of Miss Ella
Seiter and Mrs. Pahl the audience showed
its appreciation with gifts of beautiful
boquets. Mr. Schlumpberger also ap
peared (behind the curtain and while the
the band through some mistake played
swreet strains below) and covered himself
with that credit which is so delightful to
an actor's feelings. The flash of the eye,
the eager ring of the voice and the im
petuosity of his manner were such as to
constitnte in Mm an artist on the stage,
for in unaffected naturalness, "don't you
know" is genuine art.
FOUR THOUSAND AND OVER
That Itepresents the Population of New
Ulm According to Schilling's Count.
Assessor Schilling has been doing good
work this spring in taking a complete
census of the city and missing no one.
His count does not include the college
or hospital, but nevertheless it foots up
4,043 people or an increase, of 302 over
the official census of 1890. That for
some reason does not seem to have been
complete or else we have grownu^ery
rapidly in the past two years.
Going into'detail the First Ward num
bers 1,495, the Second 1,418 and the
Third 1,130. There are 2,025 males and

A clear sky and a zephyr, soft as a

Along with it came the boomihg of can

had slipped away the streets were well
lined with people, The small boy, ever
ready to make himself heard, the little
girl with her new white dress of which

country and the young man from the
country who having heard "ta-ra-ra

The parade in the morning did not
possess many new features over those
given in our city on previous occasions
but at any rate it was creditable. At
the head came Col. Pfaender and Adjt.
Eckstein and following them were the

Post, Burg's Battery, the Mayor and
council and the. speakers. In the second
division, he&ded^ by Wm. Koch, were the
Silver Cornet Band, the St. Joseph's
Society, Turnverein, and the pupils of
the Turner, Lutheran and Catholic
schools. The third division with Jos. A.
Eckstein as marshal included the Mos
quito Band, the Fire Department and the
various floats. The latter represented
the business houses of Louis Buenger,
John Hauenstein, Aug. Schell, Wagner
& Saverien, W. Eibner, the American
Express Company and Andrew Eck
At the close of the street exhibition,
the more impressive exercises were held
in Turner Hall Park. Singing and the
reading of the Declaration started the
program and then followed addresses in
English and German by Prof. Nix of this
city and Louis Stern of St. Paul. Both
gentlemen were eloquent and logical in
their brief discourses and instead of
plucking feathers from the eagle o-ave

thought and valuable suggestions.
In the afteinoon the crowd divided

On college hill and near the Catholic
church interesting picnics were also helc1.

In the evening the crowd gathered
around the Sioux Monument and witness

seen in New Ulm. It was indeed a beau

effect pleasing to all.
