OPENING FAIR IN CIRCUIT
Fine Races Promised for Nicollet
County Show at St. Peter.
Races of the Southern Minnesota
Short Ship circuit open this year with
the Nicollet county fair at St. Peter,
to be held on Tuesday, Wednesday
and Thursday, Sept. 13th, 14th and
15th. E. E. Miller the circuit secre
tary, has received upwards of fifty
entries, and it is a certainty that big
fields will be entered in all the events.
The speed program at St. Peter,
includes the 2:20 pace and the 2:40 trot
on Wednesday, and the 2:35 pace and
2:25 trot the following day. Purses of
8250 have been hung up for each race,
and the starters will include some of
the fastest horses ever brought to this
part of the state. At all of the towns
in the circuit young horses are in
training, and the purses offered have
attracted a number of horsemen who
have never campaigned in Southern
Thorough preparations have been
made by the officers of the Nicollet
County Agricultural society to make
the 1910 fair average up to those of
former years, and this means some
thing when it is known that for a
quarter of a century St. Peter has
given one of the best county fairs in
the State. Not only will the speed
program be better tban usual, but the
free attractions ar6 the best ever
engaged. The headliners are the
Kame Kichi troupe of Japanese, who
put on four separate and distinct acts,
and the Murdos with their trained
dogs, in two different acts.
Nor has the agricultural end of the
fair been neglected. Exhibits of small
grain and garden produce will exceH
those of former years, and while the
fruit will not be up to the average, the
showing of live stock will be better.
Interest centers in the contest for the
silver loving cup, offered by the Min
nesota State Dairymen's association
to the farmer exhibiting the best herd
of dairy cattle, and there will be at
least a dozen herds to compete for the
prize. A butter-scoring contest is
another feature, and on both days of
the fair there will be practical demon
strations of stock judging.

TWO HURT IN AUTOMOBiLE ACCI
Hugo Johnson and Arthur Smith
Quite Badly injured Near
The first serious automobile accident
to be recorded for New Ulm occurred
late last Saturday afternoon, when
Hugo Johnson, Theo. Seifert Arthur
Smith and Ralph Reid, all of Sleepy
Eye, left New Ulm on their return trip
to Sleepy Eye. The party had spent
all afternoon in this city. Smith was
driving the car and Johnson was at
his side. The machine must have been
going at a high speed from evidence
at the scene of the accident.
The youDg men came over from
Sleepy Eye Saturday noon in Mr. W.
W. Smith's new car which he had pur
chased the week before at a cost of
$1600. The boys were evidently out
to give the machine a good test. They
spent all afternoon in New Ulm and
started for Sleepy Eye at about 5:30
When coming to the turn crossing
the ditch on hospital road the auto
mobile skidded and in the attempt to
stop the machine which must have
been running at a high speed, the
break was applied to suddenly The
effect of this proved disasterous to
the car and it's occupants. The ma
chine turned completly around, turned
over once then righted itself. The
four young men were all thrown out.
Smith was severely injured around
the shoulders and head and Johnson
received injuries in the spine and
shoulders. Seifert and Reid escaped
with a few minor bruises.
The two injured men were immediat
ely taken to the hospital where they
received medical treatment. The pa
rents of Arthur Smith were at once
notified and arrived in this city Sa
turday evening at about seven oclock.
Their son had sufficiently recovered to
be taken home to Sleepy Eye Sunday
afternoon. Hugo Johnson is still in
the hospital in a state of stupor and
while his condition is somewhat im
proved he is not quite out of danger.
The car is pronounced a total wreck.

The large three-story brew house

lapsed shortly after noon, Thursday
while the workmen were eating dinner.
The last man to leave the building
before the collapse was Frank La
mecker, who narrowly escaped being
buried beneath the ruins. The struc
ture was strongly built of brick and
re«inforeed concrete, also strengthened
by large twenty-four-inch beams. It
is believed that the concussion caused
by blasting at the stone quarries,
about two miles distant from the
brewery, caused the walls to gradually
give way and finally collapse.
As soon as the walls fell the atmo
sphere was filled with the strong
smell of ammonia which is used to
obtain a low temperature in the brew
house. Several delivery wagons were
covered with the ruins, when the shed
adjoining the storage building broke

While the loss is a severe one to the
