The Crowd which Attended on Sunday

The twenty-secondAnnual Fair of the
Brown County Agricultural Society
opened on Friday and continued without
much excitement until Sunday evening.
The first two days were marked by only
a slim attendance, but Sunday .afternoon
the people came in from the country in
crowds and by night the coffers of the
gate keepers were heavy with quarters.
Financially,success is the only word that
can be applied to the show. Last year
the management lan into the hole to the
extent of about $800, but this year they
will be able to cut that down some, the
net income being in the neighborhood of
$200. This should be of some encour
agement to the officers and directors and
next year an effort should be made to do
still better and at the same time have a
better Fair. It can be done if |the co-

As to the exhibit itself, it was good—
that is, what there was of it. There was
too little inteiest taken, however, in
showing what we have to show, and the
visitors found veiy little to enteitain
hem. A few of the merchants neverthe
less manisfested enterprise sufficient to
lecorate the small hall, and their exhib
ts were in eveiy sense creditable. Chief
imong them was the beautiful stand of
N". Henningsen & Co covered with tm

In the large hall were the vegetable,
fiuit and graia^xhibits. While not up to
the showing made in former years, they
would nevertheless hold their own
igainst the products of others ^counties
and were well worth looking at. The
•tock exhibit on the other hand was very
poor, in that it consisted of only a few
animals, and let it be said for the bene
fit of the farmers that they make a mis
take when they fail to bring their stock
to these annual exhibits and learn from
each other the best methods of stock-rais

The ait gallery was perhaps the most
inviting nook ot the hall. Here were
to be found fine painting sketches, re
lics, photographs and interesting collec
tions of insects and birds. A large paint

and scattered about the room were paint
ings by Mrs. McKittriek, Miss Doehne,

The County Attorneyship.
There is one office in this county which
is not receiving the proper amount ot
onsideiation in this campaign. We ic
fer to the county attorneyship.
The two candidates for this office aie
Mi. Eckstein and Mr. Robertson. For
the latter gentleman we have all respect
but there are good reasons why the sup
port of people throughout the county
should go to the Republican nominee.
The first of these is that the incumbent
of the office should be a resident of the
county seat. Almost all of his business
calls him to this city and the location of
the sheriff and other officers demand that
the attorney should be of easy access in
all matters that are apt to turn up. &*
Another good reason is that Mr. Eek
stein as city attorney has particularly
fitted himself for offices of this kin»d and
of public trust and his painstaking, ex
acting and prompt manner of handling
all business that comes up betore him is
greatly to his credit. Should he be elec
ted there would be no lagging in attend
ing to duties and the requirements of the
office would be looked after in every

-,. Hon. C. K. Davis, United States Sena

visit New Ulm previous to the election.
We will therefore have the privelege of
listening to one of the most gifted and
learned men of the country.
Hon. F. F. Davis, the brilliant, flowiery
and polished orator of Minneapolis, is
booked for a Republican speech in Slee
py Eye, sometime next month. Davis
is the man who so eloquently seconded
Gresham's nomination at Chicago in 1888
and Nelson's at St. Paul in July.
Geo. W. Somerville speaks at Harmo
ny Hall in Sleepy Eye to-night. Mr.
Somerville has made a good lecord for
himself as a court-room orator -and if he
succeeds as well in dealiiag with political
topics, his sei vices in Brown County this
fall will be valuable to the party.
Prof. McCleary, Republican candidate
for congress in this district, addressed

to him and the professor succeeded in
stirring up considerable enthusiasm. Af

ol. W. I. Plummer, the silver-tongued
Qiator of Dakota, will be at Sleep} Eye
on tlie-erening of the 28th. Plummer is
one of the liveliest orators in the noith
west and his addresses have always been
the means of firing up the spirits ot sium
bering Republicans. It is doubtful if a
more eloquent speech is delivered in the
county during the cvmpaign.
DanLawlei, the Demociatic nominee
for governor, will be at Turner Hall next
Tuesday evening. Eloquence will flow
from the young orator's mouth in big
chunks, no doubt, but lookout for cun
ning twisting of figvues to confoim to
tariff refoim ideas. Lawler is a lawyei
as well as an orator, and knows how to
make the most out of a poor case.
Octobei 1st is the date fixed for Knute
Nelson's speech in this city. Everywhere
this plain, but able, man is being received
with tremendous houses, and in NewrUlm

EAGLE MILL IMPROVEMENT.
An Addition* to be Constructed whichifv wil}
Increase the Capacity 500 Barrels.
Last week a contract was let to J. F.
Harrison of Minneapolis by the Eagle
Mill Company for an extensive addition
to their millS^/ The proposed structure
will be four stories high above basement
and will be located on the south side of
the present mill. It will be. furnished
with entirely new machinery and will
give an additional daily capacity to the
establishment of 500 barrels, making
1,400 barrels in all. Two new boilers
of large capacity will be necessary and
these will be put in place at once.
The work has already been commenced
and will 'be finished in a short while,thus
making one more creditable addition to
the improTement record of 1892.

Dtoth of Mrs- Whitney
Late Tuesday afternoon of last week
there oecufred the death of Mrs. F.
Whitney at the home of her parents in
thisj9ity.^lThe deceased was a young
woman df only twenty-seven years and
this, together with the esteem in which
she was held by her relatives and the
community at large, makes her death a
sad one. She was dorn on the 10th of
May 18G5 and in 1888 she was married
to Frank Whitney with whom she lived
in happiest union until the day of her
untimely death. Sickness afflicted her
during the summer and with the^ birth
of their only child, Leslie, in August,the
complications increased and she died on
the l4th after & week or more of rapid
failing of physical powers^ Her d^ath
was a quiet one and up to the last mom
ent she conversed on the appioaching
end with her husband with all of a wo
man's faith and courage.*!: *J
Of the life and character of the de
ceased, no lujgher,praise can be bestowed
than that sh& was esteenffed by those who
knew her best. As a wife and mother,
she was tender, loving and devoted as
a neighbor and friend, she was pleasant,
kind, generous and warrn-heaited. Her
devotion to her husband was such as to
be strikina, and as each friend, who
looked upon hei countenance for the last
time, dropped a flowei o'er the dead, it
showed an impressive appieciation of her
friendship that will linger as a sweet
memoiy to console the sorrows of the be
reaved. To them and to her husband in
particular the loss is bitter and severe.
But such, however, is the stern Teality
of life to all —"a flower that does with
opening mom arise, and, flourishing the
day, afc evening dies, a bubble breaking,
and fable told a noon-tide shadow
and midnight dream." Hope along
brings consolution nothing cheers.
The funeral was held Friday afternoon
from the lesidence and was largely at
tended. The remains were laid to rest
in the city cemetery and the floial con

Stj$et Corner Philosophy.
The above term is in no way original.
On the other hand it is old and oftimes
boriowed, being similar»in manyiespects
to "Observer" and "Beobachter," phrases
used by local journals for convening ideas
that need a heading to give them weight
and significance, and a long indulgence
in which makes them wearisome and
taking to the nerves of patient readers
When a mail leaves a paity, he doesn't
want to imagine that he has accomplished
any great wreck oi mm. Generally the
damage is greatest to himself.
The univeise was intended to be big
enough for us all, and sooner or later the
man who attempts to lide ovei another
will find it out. Freshness loses its
freshness through long standing.
Next to the well-matriculated chump,
it is the educated man who tries to shed
an air of impoitance wherevei he goes
who first finds himself "not in it," as it
were. The people, we have noticed, get
tired very rapidly of a man who does
not know enough to be economical in
lottjng people see how much he knows.
A new-comer in a town, be the town
evei so small, should be very careful to
avoid thinking that he owns the place,
or that he will institute great reforms
from the mere fact that he finds himself
located there. Conceit is the only term
applicable to such ideas, and in editors,
who are supposed to be public servants,
their presence is particularly obnoxious
An editor, if he wants to succeed,
should be the last person to make a fool
of himself. The quickest way to destioy
the power of the press is to cultivate the
idea that you know it all or that you
are wiser than your neighbor. The peo
ple sometimes concede that much to the
quill drivers, but it is only when they
find it out for themselves. Tou cannot
bring about the same result by adverti
sing yourself as one of the ^'chosen."

Thestiuggle in all human society is
first foi bread. There is no use in pro
pounding fine theories to a man who is
hungry. There is no use in commending
political principles to one who is in need
of sheltei. There is no use in talking
philosophy to one who is naked. Food
and clothing are primaiy requirements
of human society primary elements
of human progress and to secure these
you must put the people in the way of
earning good wages. The beginning
therefore, and the end of wise legislatioi
is to give eveiy man a fair and equal
chance, and to leave the race of life open
and free foi all. What agency will best
accomplish that? What legislation will
most tend to that end? Certainly it will
not tend to that end to thiow open our
ports, and say. "Send ye all our fabrics
made by the cheapest and most dis

The hope of the Republican party is
in the young men. There is where they
have their recruits. Ihey have come
