Gentlemen: For the benefit of suffering hu
manity I wish to state a few facts: For several
years have suffered from catarrh and heart
failure, getting so bad I could not work and
Could Scarcely Walk
I had a very bad spell of paralysis of the throat
some time ago. My throat seemed.closed and
I could not swallow. The doctors said it
was caused by heart failure, and gave medicine,
which I took according to directions, but it did
not seem to do me any good. My wife urged
me to try Hood's Sarsaparilla, telling me of Mr.
Joseph C. Smith, who had been
At Death's Door
bat was entirely cured by Hood's Sarsaparilla.
After talking with Mr. Smith, I concluded to
try Hood's Sarsaparilla. "When I had taken
two bottles I felt very much better. I have
continued taking it, and am now feeling excel*
lent. I thank God, and
and my wife for my restoration to perfect
health." HAKVEY HEED, Laceyville, O.

THE FABMEE'S INSTITUTE.
Which will be with ua on the 13 and 14th
of February. '•!',
According to the St. St. Peter Herald
it was but a few years ago that Farmers
Institutes in Minnesota were but an ex
periment but now that they have been
tried and proved successful it is appro
priate in this connection, to say a few
words. In pome cases farmers are taxed
for improvements in which they are but
little, if any, benefited, but in the case of
these institutes an appropriation is made
out of the general state funds for carry
ing on this work which, in reality, bene
fits farmers, and if they are not in at
tendance they lose much of interest and
instruction and fail, pecuniarily to take
advantage of that which they help pay
for. We are aware that some of our
farmers in both Nicollet and Brown
counties have never attended anything of
the kind in question and to these especi
ally we say that you are ignorant of the
great amount of good that is being done
by these same, institutes.
On Feb. 13th and 14th you will hear
practical men talk those men who have

ties of farm life those men who have

hear men talk—men who started life on
the farm in the sod or log shanty but
who long ago left homes of convenience
and comfort to tell others how to do it.
They will tell you how to quit working

A meeting of the stockholders of
Hanska-Linden Creamery was held on
Monday. It developed that the creamery
had been operated to the satisfaction of
all, and at the present prices the reports
show that the dairy production in the
township amounts to nearly as much as
the wheat production. As a result sever
al new shares were sold, and it would re
quire a close search to find a farmer in the
township who doesn't hold stock. A com
mittee of farmers from the southeastern
part of Sigel and southwestern part of
Cottonwood also attended the meeting
for the purpose of discussing the erection
of a seperator on the Cottonwood and
Sigel line to be operated in connection
with the Hanska Creamery, and it was
decided that as soon as twenty-five shares
have been subscribed the separator will
be built. The entire management of the
institution was placed in the hands of Mr.

Suicide of Conrad Dirks.
On Friday New Ulm people' were
shocked and pained to learn of the self
inflicted death of Conrad Dirks Sr. of
Lafayette. In such cases the cause is al
ways the first thing that the public in
quires about and as near as can be ascer
tained the circumstances in this particu
lar instance were as follows.
A little over three years ago Mr. Dirks
suffered from alight stroke of apoplexy.
Later on the ailing manifested itself on
two different occasions, and his health
has ever since been subject to attacks of
a varied character—sometimes severe
headache and sometimes acute rheuma
tism. His custom of thinking studious
ly upotf different matters led to melan
choly of a serious nature, and constant
fear was entertained by his relatives as
to his conduct.
The loss of property in the fire at
Springfield weighed heavily on his mind
and no doubt hastened the awful end.
Friday morning he went from his house
in better spirits than usual and entered
upon the chores about the farm, fle
did not return when expected and some
time before noon his body was found
hanging from a rope attached to a rod in
a shed protecting the windmill pump.
The body was immediately taken down
and carried into the house where an in
quest was held on Saturday. The fun
eral occurred at the M. E. church on
Sunday and waa largely attended by the
family's many friends, the remains
being interred in the city cemetery,
Mr. Dirks was born in Fromhausen,
Lippe Dettmold, West Phalen, Germany
on the 3d of February 1833. Consequent
ly he was 61 years of age at the time of
his death. In early youth he had to leave
home on account of the poverty of his
parents and he worked out for a year at
a salary of $10 a year and board, The
second year his wages were increased $8
and he continued slowly along this line
—making bricks—for eighieen years. In
1863 he was married to Miss Mary Beck
mann and five years later they came to
America. He first settled in Iowa and
later in Lafayette where both Mr. and
Mrs. Dirks worked for Simon Wellner.
This was in 1868 and the following win
ter they built themselves a little block
shanty, living therein for nine years, hap
pily together. From that time on Mr.
Dirks has steadily prospered and at the
time of his death was one of the weal
thiest farmers in Lafayette. He was al
so esteemed by all his neighbors and by
all who knew him in New Ulm. Indus
trious, and conserative in his business
dealings, he has also been a model man
in his family. To this his wife and his
five children are willing witnesses.
The program for the Turntag at Tur
ner Hall next Sunday will be as follows:
In the morning, gymnastic exercises from
9 to 12 o'clock in the afternoon, a
meeting for the purpose of drawing up
rules for the coming Turnfest which will
undoubtedly be held in this city. In the
evening, a lecture by J. J. Rhoinberg,
to conclude with a dance.
