The Ladies Society of the Turnver

Thursday afternoon. Mrs. Louise
Toberer, Mrs. Ernst Brandt, Mrs.
John Scbapekahm, Mrs. F. W. John
son, and Mrs. Irtna Monsen were the
celebrants. Mrs. Robert Scherer ex
tended the congratulations of the La
dies Society, Mrs. Schmidt read a
German selection and Mrs.' L. G. Bell
read oue of Riley's little prose tales.
The musical numbers consisted of two
piano selections by Miss Henrietta

Mrs. W. G. Alwin, Mrs. H. Hein and
Mrs. L. G. Bell,
Mrs. H. L. Beecher returned Satur
day from a month's visit with relatives
in Washington, D. C, New fork City,
Buffalo and Delaware, Ohio. Mrs.
Beecher reports an exceedingly enjoy
able time, as the opportunity offered
to see and hear so much of the best
io tbe opera and drama while in New
York and during her entire stay the
weather was so unusually mild for that
section. A temperature of 26 above
was the coldest during her stay. Tbe
unusual warmth of tbe season is ac
companied by considerable fog and
but little sunshine. New Jersey has
experienced tbe worst fog in many
years, it beiog impossible to see the
porch pillars of the houses from tbe
windows at times.
Tbe New Ulm Ice Company are al
most tbe busiest people in town these
days getting in their harvest. When
they get thru taking out all the ice
their contracts call for there may be
some difficulty in loeatieg tbe Minne
sota River. The Ice Co. requires
about 5000 tons in their own houses
for New Ulm consumption and they
have orders fur 100 carloads to be
shipped to Rowena, Clements, Wanda,
Evan, Morgan, Klossner, Lafayette,
Winthrop, Gaylord, Gibbon and Fair
fax. They also supply the Milfoid
and Cottonwood Creamery andCrone's
besides many of the creameries in the
surrounding1 territory where the farm
ers do tbe hauling. Last winter tbe
company also had the contract for sup*
plying both the railroads with ice and
this winter to date 7500 tons have been
harvested with two week's work still
ahead. The expense of potting up the
ice this winter is increased very ma
terially by the open winter and lack of
snow. When sleds can be used for
hauling 8 cakes can be loaded on at
one trip. This winter with wagons
only 0 cakes can be hauled and this
makes a difference of 25% in the time
required to haul the ice.

This week's issue contains an article
on our editorial page on "High
School Athletics" that is good read
ing for every patron of our schools.
We didn't write the article but we
gladly give it space because we agree
that New Ulm is sadly lacking in the
spirit of lively interest in what our
young people are doing. We are too
apt to expect them to take a deep in

any effort on our part to make them

the joy they take in the pleasure afford

when he said New Ulm has no place
for the boy to play. It's a shame that
we haven't a really creditable, proper

Speaker Rines is not going to tet
the democratic members shape leg

it. He treated the minority more
niggardly than did H. H. Dunn two
years ago. The minority this year
got the chairmanship of tbe com

and the committee on state train

The progressive republicans wilt
have to liurry to keep op with the

chamber. Moonan, Cashman, Pfaen

of the minority have introduced*
measures which are important planks,
of the progressive program Senator
John Moonan stole a march on the
majority in introducing, the Initiative
and referendum bill. Senator Works
will introduce ah income tax bill.
Representative Minnette is fatherinsr
a public utilities commission. Even
if the democrats were slighted as
to committees, they are not slight
ing progressive legislation and the
majority will have''to hurry to rob*
them of the credit of taking the
initiative in this good work.
It would seem that if Lieutenant
Governor Burnquist and Speaker
Rines were really serious about econ
omy at this session they should have
begun at home. Economy, like char
ity, should begin at home. Both
these gentlemen have private secre
taries at $10 a day. The luxury wiir
cost the state $2,000 for the session.
Of course this sum was saved iir
the elimination of jacknives and
souvenir paper cutters—hut to what
purpose is this $2,000 spent? There
is some utility in a jacknife or
paper cutter, but by what stretch
of imagination can anyone justify
a private secretary to the speaker
or the lieutenant governor? The
