1 *lW%f asfi ^v ULM AND VICINITY. FATAL SHOOTING ACCIDENT. A most deplorable accident, if acci dent it can properly be called, hap pened in the lower part of town last Sunday evening, at 5:30, by which a little son of Jos. Baarlost his life. We made diligent inquiries and we give the facts as near as we were able to gather them. In the first place, in order to get a thorough understanding of the case, we would state that Mr. Baar, the father of the victim, is a day laborer, living in Baumler's old build ing, not far from the Eagle Mill. The little fellow, who would have been 4 years old next November, was left in charge of an older biother while their mother went out to assists Mr. Baum ler in hauling hay. When Mr. Baum ler was returning with a load of hay, on which were seated Mrs. Baar and Mrs. Gcede, the boy ran out to meet them expecting, no doubt, to get aride the older one at the same time calling on Fritz Beinhorn, a 14 year old son of Fr. Beinhorn, and two other boys, that were passing down 3d North'street, to wards the river .to drive him back. The three boys told the little fellow to go home, one of them at the same time tramping on the street in order to scare him. At this juncture it appears young Beinhorn, who was within 3 or 4 yards of the lad, pointed a small pistol to ward him and said: '*Go home" and at the same time fired. The ball entered the little boy's forehead about one and a quarter inches over the left eye, passed through the brain and lodged in the back part of the head. The anguish of the mother, who had been an eye witness to the whole proceeding, upon seeing her darling boy fall pierced by a bullet, may better be imagined than expressed. The little fellow was ten derly carried into the house, and Dr. Muller was hastily summoned, who upon his arrival,pronounced the wound fatal. He lingered however in a state of unconsciousness until 8 o'clock Mon day evening, when he quietly passed away, never having once spoken from the time of the fatal shot. He will be carried to his last resting place this afternoon at 2 o'clock. The coroner held an inquest over the body yester day at 10 a. m. and examined witnes ses, but the evidence adduced elicited no other facts than we have above given. The following is the verdict of the coroners juiy: STA1E oF MINNESOrA,) COUNTY OF BROWN. An inqnis iijn taken at the lionse oi Joseph Baar in the city ot Se-n Ulm, IU the county of Bi ov, n, on Ihe fath day of August, A D. 1878, befoie H.

C, H. CHRISTENSEN, Coroner. Row Herman Winkler. John C. Tobeeer. .,.___. F.LeibuJUL Jurors W.Gebser. I Franz Gnebe While the shooting no doubt was ac cidental, as young Beinhorn merely intended to scare him, the point ing of the revolver at the boy is a piece of carelessness too often in idulged in by even older people, and this sad accident should be a dire warn ing to eyeryone handling fire arms to he more careful. Especially should It be a warning to parents to be more stringent with their boys and not allow them to handle deadly weapons of any kind. The family of Mr. Baar has the sympathy of the community in this their very sad affliction as also the family of Mr. Beinhorn who, naturally feel greatly embarrassed under ther ciri' cumstances. 1*11 f,h. SERIOUS RUNAWAYHardly a week passes without we are called upon to chronicle a runaway. The most seri ous, however, that has occurred in this vicinity for along time, happened last Sunday evening. Mr. Amon Peterson, brother of S. D. Peterson, and lady were out taking a ride, nnd when near Wjnkjemann's pottery one of the horses got the Jines nnder his tail whereupon tie commenced to kick, causing one of the outside traces to become detached. The horses then commenced to run in a circle, upsetting the buggy and throwing both occupants violently to the ground. Mrs. Peterson had two ribs broken, a shoulder dislocated .and received other injuries about the head. Mr. Peterson escaped more luckily, as Jne only received some slight bruises about ttie knees. Dr. Muller has the patiente in charge and they are doing as well as could be expected, The laorses, alter running a short distance land makSsag kindling wood out of the *uggy were caught by Emil Seiter. T%e cryrf "fine," that word which will mafe Una very laziest get up and dust, bwugiat more people into our streets last Saturday evening than we toave see* for many a day. It brought us up standing with lightning rapidity, and upon rushing into the street we no ticedhuge volumes of smoke issuing torn Jacob's bujijldiBg, adjoining Ep ple's meat market, and the sight of a disastrous conflagrattoja flitted across our vision. I soon provedtobe only a chimney burning out, and the excite ment as well as the fire quickly subsid ed, and the town again assumed the quiet aspect it has had fortheJa&.fo*fr- jteeadays. 4-j^* it -"fcS"4 i i' i*?-1 T*i NEW TIME CARDA new time card has been issued by the Winona & St. Peter railroad and went into efEect last Sunday, at 9 a. m. While the new ar rangement does not effect New Ulm, as far as the eastern end is concerned, the trains, both passenger and freight, arrive and depart as hereto fore, it materially effects the people west of us. The passenger train has been discontinued and the only com munication we now have with the west is by a mixed train, which leaves here at 9:20 a. m., and arrives at Marshall at 5:10, and Gary 9:40 p. m. We doand not think that the people west of us will appreciate this new arrangement muchly," as* under it they will re ceive mail from the east only every other day, saying nothing of being all day going to, or returning from, Mar shall. A freight train also leaves New Ulm for the west at 8 a. m., but it goes only as far as Sleepy Eye. The trains for Redwood Falls leave Sleepy Eye at 10:30 a. m. and arrive at Redwood at 12-30 p. m. Going east the trains leave Redwood at 1:00 p. m. and arrive in Sleepy Eye at 3:00 p. m., in time for the passengers to take the accommoda tion train tor this city where it makes close connection with the night express for the east. The Mankato Beobachter says that they have no use for rifle companies in that city to.keep down the tramps, as they have a more simple way of dispos ing of themthey hang the rascals "if" they catch 'em. Yes, brother B., that's a very simple way of solving the tramp problem, but your catching agency has not been very successful so far in catching the chaps. Mr. C. F. Held proprietor and manu facturer of the "Farmer's Friend Fan ning Mill" has lately so improved and remodeled his mills that they are now equal to thej best. We weie shown some samples of wheat last Monday which had been cleaned by one of those mills that was all that could be wished for. Mr. Held offers the "Farmer's Fiiend" for $25,00, and such of ourto farmers as are in need of a fanning mill should examine these mills before plac ing their orders elsewiiere. Encourage home industry, especially when you can obtain the same quality of goods for the same money. Mr. Held war lants his mills to do all that is claimed for them, jt We learn from the Windom Reporter that John Cooney, a likely young lad of M't. Lake, who attended two terms of the Sister's school in this city, met with what may prove a fatal accident. The boy was herding cattle and had taken a seat on a trestle bridge of the St. Paul & Sionx City railroad, where, overcome with heat, he fell asleep, with his head on the rail and feet hang ing below. The engineer of theMr. Woithington accommodation train dis covered him when within about fifty feet, but not in time to stop the train. The cowcatcher struck the boy's head knocking him from the trestle to the ground, some fifteen feet, Upon be ing picked up it was found that the back pait of the skull was crushed, and when the fractured pieces were re moved the brain was laid bare to extent of the size of a silver dollar. At latest accounts the boy was still alive, and everything possible is being done for him. N EW STORENagle &Co. have open ed a new hardware and tinware store in Lohmann's building, on 3d North street. Thefirmis composed of Henrythe Nagle and Lafayette McClahan, both enterpiising and energetic young men, and we bespeak for them a bright fu ture. Their stock is all new and of the best quality, and as they come with the intention of establishing a perma nent business their prices will be found to correspond favorably with others handling the same class of goods. Give them a call, and see for yourselves. Our friend Tory Olesen returned from Delavan Station last Saturday evening. During liis absence he be came a hard-working granger, and re turns so much tanned and sunburned that, it is said, his sweetheart didn't recognize him when he called to pay his respects, and at first took him for a tramp. It is ever thus, the hard* til lers of the soil5never meet their just dues. But Tory will live through it He has laid in a stock of juniper tar 'soap. Hagan's magnolia balm.Burnett's kallistone and liilie white, which, by proper and bountiful application, will bring him out all right. i'V M~ i The Lake City Leader disposes of the tramp problem in this wise: "AJJ that big scare that we heard from below about the army of harvest hands that was soon to spread ruin through out our State has dwindled into a "mare's nest," as it were.t The har vesters have come, and as* a iple they are a well-behaved set of men, with sunburned brow and callous hands ready and willing to work for the wealth they sought to possess. They came on boat and train, took up their quarters on the business thoroughfares, and hired out by the hundred, taking, their departure without unseemly de monstrations of any kind." Tramps and harvest hands should not be confound ed, and it is easy to distinguish one fioin the other/'"*- Des Moines & Minneapolis Railroad. says: J^A "Jl fi Wtitizelfs, who are wa%c&ng"tne w? gladtolearn that the road is pushing iSLSEKi bravelv abPad and that if Jni attendance special Des Moines correspondent of SSnSS???^? ,o thePioneerPress,underdateJuly29th,' we2woul "The little, but capable, narrow- JS?Z! ffauffe road is ^inwlv hnt ^iivpivwnvt Sts sernentinP^vto^innpJSS ^^e^Ol^hS^ffl cause it was desired to make.Webster ul^Ztlilar^1 Cityapoint.

The most destructive hail storm on record, accompanied by heavy wind and rain, passed over portions of Car ver, Scott, Rice and Dakota counties, Tuesday afternoon, July 30th. A spe cial correspondent of thePioneer Press, writing from Carver, says that hail stones four and five inches in diameter fell, covering the ground to a depth of tluee or four inches,cutting coin down the ground and completely burying wheat, oats and other giam in the ground. Tiees were stripped of leaves and torn down. On the Wednesday following another hail stoim passed thioughpoitions of Nicollet and Sibley counties doing considerable damage to standing crops and scattering grain in shocks in all directions. Fences wrere blown down and demolished. Hail stones could be found on the ground 12 hours after the storm had passed. The Eagle Mill received thefirstnew wheat last Saturday. The wheat was from the farms of John Franta in West Newton, and Fr. Krueger of Courtland, and went 52 and 53 pounds to the| bushel, was graded No. 3, "and brought 60 cts. We are informed by Doehne, of the Eagle Mill, that the wheat will make good flour, and the only trouble was that it lacked in weight. From the specimens shown us, which are claimed to be thekbest We understand that several cases of petty thievery have been commit ted of late, by some young scamps of this city. A thirteen year old boy, living in the northern part of the town, entered a neighbor's house one day last week and took there from a pocket book containing $12. After securing the money he threw pocket book into the neighbor ing garden, and then repaired to a store where pistols are kept for sale and bought himself a revolver and two boxes of cartridges. After toy ing with the pistol for a day or so he traded it off for a few marbles. Our city authorities should be example of some of the young ras cals.

Our farmers seem to take unusual piecaution this year in handling mach inery, as we have yet to hear of the first mower or reaper accident. We are requested to state that a tele graphoffice has just been established a't Burns Station for the accommodation of the railroad'and the public. We are informed tluit John Wise, the Redwood Falls brewer" mysterious ly left that place last Thursday after noon and has not been seen or heaid from since. Mr. Paul, the mail contiactor on the route between ]Ne\v Ulm and Redwood Falls, lost a valuable hoise last Fri day from the ettectsof the heat. The boys woiked hard to get him into town, but he dropped dead on the knoll this side of the buirying grounds, about one mile fiom town. Yesterday afternoon Mr. S. D. PeBOARD tersen's traction engine attached to a separator, as set in motion moving along the stiejts at the rate of about three or foui miles an hour. On the top of the machine weie seated ahout 15 or 20 boys who seemed to enjoy themselves hugely. This engine is so mstructed as to go on any ordinary road,diawing the separtor along with it. Wheat crop reports from northern Iowa and southwestern Minnesota are of a very discouraging character, and the best predict only half a orop. In the northern part of the State, along the St. P. & P. and N. P. railroads the damage does not appear to have been so great, and an average crop is expect ed.
