FARMERS ARE THE
SPRINGFIELD BIG BUSINESS
KNOWS WHEN TO MAKE ..
COMFREY ALSO DECIDES TO
ENTERTAIN N. P. LEAGUE
As far as Springfield is concerned it
can be truthfully said that A. C. Townley,
President of the. Non-Partisan League,
came, saw attd 'conquered. According
to the Springfield. Free Press of last week
a storm of proVest arose among the peo
ple of our neighboring city when it be
came known that a meeting of theThe
Partisan League had been booked in the
Springfield Oper£ House for Thursday
-afternoon February 21 tfj2:00 P. M.
It appeared as tho violence might
done in case the meeting should be held
as threats were quite openly jmade gad
for that reason__the vill»£e council met,
and-, &5 Ii means of averting possible
trouble, after a thoro discussion, decided
to put a ban on the league meeting and
placed resolutions to that effect on the
records of the village council.
Farmers Mean Business.
When Townley left New Ulm by auto
Thursday morning he did not believe
that it would be possible to hold a meet
ing in the village of Springfield but
figured that a meeting might be held near
Springfield long enough to adopt reso
lutions. However the farmers around
Springfield, in the meantime, had not
been idle and had gone to the village in
goodly numbers, and, if reports here
are true, called upon their merchant
friends with whom they were doing
business and wanted to know if they
were opposed to them or would assist
them in making it possible to hold the
meeting in Springfield.
Merchants Back Water.
The merchants in a very short time
saw the force of the arguments offered
by the farmers that they should have a
right to come into th6 village where they
were doing their trading fpi":the* purpose
of discussing matters of vital importance
to the farmers of the country and a great
deal of the opposition disappeared.
Red Cross Gets $114.
In some way the farmers secured the
key to the Opera House and a meeting
was held there with about 500 enthu
siasts in attendance. Sheriff Julius was
prese.t to see that nothing seditious
was said. The meeting passed off with
out the slightest disturbance and the
are not excelled anywhere.
Each garment is made in
the very latest style and
comes to us direct from
eastern markets. They are
quality productions thru
out, as evidenced by our
large showing in our cloak
and suit department.
It is impossible to do more
than merely suggest the
beauty of the styles we
ask you to come and see
for yourselves how well the
garments are made, and
the ease with which they
fit. They give service that
is satisfactory, in addition
to the individuality and
beauty of the styles.
people of Springfield no doubt aie con
vinced now that the Non-partisan League
is not one-half" so "dangerous as it was
pictured to them. A collection was
taken up for the Red .Cross and about
$114 was donated for this purpose.^-
Welcome to Corofrey.
It is also reported that after the
meeting was over the Mayor of Comfrey
who had been in the audience asked for
recognition and upon getting the floor
said that he was glad that he had an
opportunity to attend a meeting of the
Non-partisan League to rear what
they had to say and that he now felt
convinced of their loyalty to our country
and invited them to hold meetings in
Comfrey, assuring them of a hearty wel
come and a warniTiall.
The meeting scheduled at, Mankato
was not held because it would have
conflicted with a Red Cross auction sale
which" had been previously arranged.
meeting was abandoned for themen
present, but will no doubt be held in the
near future. '.

S E I E
It is now thirty years since? W.
Blauert, the principal, of-the St."Paul's
Lutheran parochial school, came to
New Ulm and took charge of the con
gregation's school. He can look back
with considerable gratification on the
results achieved. In a short time after"
he took charge, the numfcer of pupils
of the school increased from eighty-two
to one hundred-seventy-two and in many
other ways a steady improvement
manifested itself. During the time
that Prof. Blauert has had charge of
the school, about 1,200 children have
received instruction at his hands- Of
these, six have become ministers of the
gospel, seven teachers, one is a principal
of a High School, a large number are
teachers in the public schools of the
state and about a dozen of the young
have engaged in the mercantile
business. I may be said that when
Prof. Blauert came here he received The
munificient salary of $12 a month and
board. Since then, of course, conditions
have improved considerably and_he i§
now receiving a salary commensurate
with the importance of his position.
During his thiity years' connection with
the school the best of relations have
always existed between himself and the
congregation and he may be justly proud
of his achievements. .--^%•..?*

slightly better and hopes are entertained
for his recovery, altho the burns are
