Shall W« Have A Chautauqua?
Messrs Bickes & Jeffries, Chautau
qua promoters bad a representative in
New Ulm Monday to try to arouse
interest here in a course for next sum*
mer. Rev. Hohn of the German
E. Church is much interested in the
idea. A meeting was called for Mon
day evening at the Commercial Club
rooms and about twenty five of the
representative citizens of tbe city were
present. Dr. G. B. Weiser was made
temporary chairman and Hildiog
Krook, secretary. The matter was
discussed and it seemed to be the con
census of opinio a that it would be im
possible to decide on tbe matter until
after Christmas. In tbe meantime
various organizations are to take up
the matter with their members and test
the sentiment of tbe citizens in general.
The course as offered by Mr. Bickes
calls for a guaranty of 1750 for a
week's lectures and concerts The
Company will provide a speaker on
agricultural topics, a Shakespearian
lecturer, the Royal Italian Concert
Band, a Boy Scout Quartette and
other noted musicians and speakers.
The $750 will cover the cost of tents,
lighting and advertising. No speakers
of Bryan calibre are provided for this
amount but the Company offers to
secure them at cost if tbey are desired.
The cost of a season ticket would be
12. The Women's Clubs were re
presented by several of their members
We believe that any educational
project woutd be a good thing for New
Uim. Surely no other city of its size
is so slow to take up progressive ideas.
There has been as yet but very little
progress made in tbe matter of a
library altbo the committee reports as
still working to find information. We
have before us a magazine of the
Minnesota Public Library Commission
which is full from cover to cover with
news of libraries tbruout tbe state.
Dozens of small cities are doing active
work for their institutions what is
the matter with New Dim?
Wbilfe we are not wholly in accord
with the Chautauqua idea we do be
lieve that anything which will infuse
the spirit of progress into tbe stolidi
ty of New Ulm is a thing to be en
Card of Thanks
We desire to express our heartfelt
gratitude to all who extended kindness
and sympathy to us in our recent greal
bereavement. Especially we wish to
thank the docors of tbe flowers, tbe
pallbearers and Rev. Father Scblin
kert for bis words of consolation.

CROUPY COUGHS AND WHEEZY
The quickest simplest way to rid
the children of dangerous croupy
coughs and wheezy stuffy colds is to
give them Foley's Honey and Tar
Compound. It gives almost instant
relief and stops a cough promptly. It
soothes and heals. Contains no
opiates. O. M. Olsen.

tember will be rebuilt and in a more
I substantial manner. The. matter of
erecting a new grand stand will also
receive due consideration. This will
mean the expenditure of at least $6,
000, and it is but natural that the
officers hesitate before ordering this
vast improvement, because it will
mean throwing the Society into debt
for at least $4,000. A new grandstand
is almost imperative and it is sincere
ly hoped that those at the helm will
see their way clear in launching the
new improvement this year because
the increased receipts will more than
offset the interest charge that will
have to be met if the grandstand is
The Fair for 1913 promises to excel

that it has ever had. A communi
cation was read from the Interna
tional Theatrical Company of Chica
go, who want to book New Ulm for
an aviation meet in June or possibly
on the 4th of July. If this event
comes off, there will be at least two
aeroplane flights and auto and motor
cycle races. One of the aeroplanes
to make an ascension will be a Trac
tor biplane of the latest military type
and will give an exhibition that will
eclipse the work done by the. aviator
in August which proved so eminently

Last Wednesday morning Mrs. Ger
trude Wilson of Lemon, S. D.f who
is visiting with her uncle O. P. Buell.
Cashier of the State Bank of Kasota.
while walking in the outskirts of the
village was struck down from be
hind, beaten into insensibility and then
criminally assaulted. When the un
fortunate woman regained conscious
ness, she found that she had been
dragged into a gravel pit at the side
of the road and left there after the
assault was committed. The only de- (l
scription she can give of her assailant
is that he is a dark complexioned man
of medium stature, dressed in dark
clothes and wearing a black mous
tache. A man hunt was immediately
instituted, the men of both stone quar
ries ceasing work to aid in the search.
Patrolling parties were sent out in all
directions. They scoured the sur
rounding country covering an area
of at least ten miles in extent, but
they were unable to find a trace of
the brute they sought.
