NEW PATENTJacob Essig, of Mil
ford, has been granted Letters Patent
No. 228,726, dated Oct. 8th. 1878, upon
an improved giain seperator. The
machine is so constructed that thresh
ing and cleaning can be done at one
and the same time. To the forward
ed^e of the concave of the thresher is
attached a series of guide-fingers to
guide the straw to the carrier. As
lie grain drops from the forward end
ot the ghaker it falls upon a series of
fingers attached to the shoe, by which
it is detained and seperated so that the
blast from the fan-blower may operate
fully upon all parts of the falling mass
and may blow oh" all the chaff. The
machine is said to be very simple in
construction and reliable in operation,
and if it is all that it is claimed to be
it will certainly supply a long-felt
The internal revenue collectors have
received instructions from the com
missioner of internal levenue at Wash
ington, to the effect that on and after
January 1st, 1879, "persons selling
Hostetter's, Roback's or Drake's plan
tation bitters, and similar stamped
bitters and alcoholic liquois andhevei
ages must pay a special tax as retail
liquor dealers, for the lemaining poi
tion of the special tax year, which
ends April 30, 1879. This order was
first made to go into effect November
1st, but was supplemented by an order
extending the time to allow of a dis
positiqn of this class of liquors by
those who had them In hand Any
one wishing to sell these liquors after
January 1st must pay a special liquor
tax, if they have not already done so.
Henry S. Back, who formerly lived
near Tbeiia in tliis county, now of Far
go D.T., announced himself as a candi
date for the Teriorial Legislature as
follows, buc whether he was elected or
not we have not yet learned:
Fellow Citizens:I am a plain man.
I was not born with a silver spoon in
iny mouth. I never was cradled in the
lap of luxury, neither did I ever dream
I dwelt in marble halls. I came up
from obscurity and I brought consid
erable with me. I never had anv po
litics nor much of anything else, but I
am the only qualified man in the Sev
enth Legislative Distiict for a seat in
the'Territorial Council and by the
eternal, I am going to have it.
I am a special friend of the laboring
class. I presume there is not a man on
of ground that likes to stand cround
and see a man labor as well as I do.
I'd rather see a man work than to work
myself. I am a free trade man and
willing to take greenbacks so long as
they will stand within half a cent of
gold, nq matter how great the issue.
Respectfully, H. S. Back.
Cottonwood was engaged last Friday
evening in driving some young calves
into his stable one of them suddenly
planted its hind feet square in the face
of Mr. Vqgel, badly mangling his up
per lip. George says it was a "r-r-rip-
per," and that he'd never believed it
was in the "critter.'*
Bees for
salesee advertising col-
M. H. Gamble, one of the popular
merchants at Burns Station, made us
a pleasant call last Friday. Mr. Gam
ble is also buying up, and shipping to
the Chicago, 'mai-ke|g, }ar#e' nunibers
of cattle.
Mr. Anderson, of the firm Qf Fitch
& Anderson, and W. ,11. Owens, of
Walnut Station, were in our city last
Sunday on their way home from Chi
cago where they had been with sevei
al car loads of beef cattle. They re
port the market as being overdone, in
.consequence* of which it is ajiard mat
ter to sell to any advantage. Jf
The Minnesota Democrat, a Dem
ocratic German paper published at St.
Paul, seems to have a special bone to
pick with us, and in the two numbers
preceding the last credits us with
more newspaper ability than we leal
ly possess. In the last number before
election they went wild over the know
nothing article which had been copied
from the Marshall Messenger into the
New Ulm Herald, and after knowingly
and willingly misrepresenting the mat-
ter,' by charging the authorship of the
article to a "New Ulm Turner," they
go on and say that our interests are
intimately interwoven with those of
the Herald, and that if we had a par
ticle of German blood left in our veins
we could not have allowed, such an
article to appear in its columns wr
Louis H. Helling, brother of Knut
H. Helling. Senator elect, died on the
moining of the 8th inst. On account
of his brother's illness Mr. Helling was
unable to visit any part of the district
dining the campaign.
A famous dog tiial puzzled our
learned heads last Monday. John
Hauenstein, who lives about a mile
and a half from the city, but still in
its suberbs, was hauled up because he
refused to pay the license imposed
by the city authorities on his canines.
The case was too important to entrust
to our city justices, and so M. C. Burn
side of Sleepy Eye was sent for, before
whom tiie case was tried. The jury
brought in a verdict against the city.
The marshal swears that if he ever
catches those "purps" of Hauenstein's
obstructing the highways of licensed
"dorgs," he will gobble 'em.
Get ready for a dreadful winter
The Noristovvn Herald's weather pro
phet has observed that the squiirels
are laying in their winter coal, the
beavers are putting heaters in the
basement of their lodges, the bees have
killed off all the drones and line their
hives with sheet-Iron, the musk-rats
are flying south, wild ducks are com
mitting suicide, thegoosebon is black
sixteen inches deep, country editors
are soliciting wood in exchange for
subscriptions, poor families have an
extra dog and the editor has a new
collar put on his overcoat.
Sleepy Eye Correspondence.
Editor Review.
I would like to say a few words, re
garding a Tjeachers' Association, in fa
vor of the suggestions made by Mr.
Bestor in your last issue. I consider it
the duty of every teacher, of whatever
qualification, to seek professional im
provement in every possible manner.
We you ig teachers are anxious to
improve our qualification, and thus
advance in our professional worth.
As Mr. Bestor says, "a goodly num
ber of us are only cetificate holdeis
instead of teacheis." but how are we
to better ouiselves? Certainly not by
plodding along in the old fashioned
way without attempting to improve.
Too little attention is paid to im
provement by teachers in general.!
We wouldjgain a very great advan
tage by organizing an association, and
I would suggest that Supt. Land call a
conventiou of teachers, to meet at
somp convenient place, for the purpose
of discussing the practicability of or
ganising a Teachers' Association.
I think Sleepy Eye, being iu the cen
tral vrt of the county, would be a
^^g^^te^iuc^meeting.^ ,G,

in fact we have no more to do with
the Herald than the managers of
the blatant Democrat have. It appears
that "Beer Koenig," one of the quill
drivers of the Demociat, who went a
bout the district stumping for Poehler,
and was in our city about the time the
article in question appeared in the
Herald, wrote the Democrat article,
expecting no doubt with one blow to
knock every German voter into Pcehl
er's hat. How well he succeeded the
vote of New Ulm shows.
Not being content with having us
run both the REVIEW and Herald the
Democrat, in a later issue, says that
no doubt we weie the author of the ar
ticle which appeared in the New Ulm
Post, over the signature of "Brown
County Republican." Now, really,
this is spreading it on a little to thick.
We have our hands full in writing for
the REVIEW, and must disclaim any
connection with the article published
in the Post would state however, for
the benefit of the Democrat, that
"Brown County Republican" express
ed our sentiments to a dot. The peo
ple ot the Second district su?e capable
of takin'g care of themselves, and we
would advise the Democrat to pay a
little more attention the next time to
their Donnelly and "the swindling
brass kettles."

Our people on arising yesterday
moining were horrified to learn that
Chas. E. Petry, a lad of about 17 years,
had hung himself in the Herald office,
the night previous. He was first dis
covered by John Galles, another em
ployee in the Herald office, and his
father who was searching for him, as
he had not been at home the previous
eighteen hours. He had fastened a
piece of cord, used by the St. Paul
Newspaper Union for doing up pack
ages, to the knob of the inner door
and. then passed it over the door. After
having made these preparations it ap
pears that he placed a chair against
the door, and after having tied a towel
around his kneckhe got onto the chair
and placed the cord over the towel and
kicked the chair out from under him.
The fall must have broken his kiieck,
as when found his legs were neaily
doubled up under him on the floor.
The body was quite cold when found
and must have hung several houis. In
the early morn, before coroner Chris
tensen arrived, many people visited
the scene of the youthful suicide, and
all expressed themselves horiified at
the sight. The boy had been employed
on the REVIEW ever since last Decem
ber, and only last Thuisday morning
reluctantly left us to assume a moie
lucrative position on the Heiald,
While in our service we found him
willing and industrious, and why he
should have done this lash deed no
one knows, unless it was because, as
he sometimes complained, that he did
leceive the best of treatment at home,
and that some of his comrades, as his
father testified before the coroner's
jury, twitted him because he woiked
the Herald office. The coronei's
jury brought in a verdict that he came
to his death from strangulation by
hanging himself. The beieaved fami
ly have the sympathy of the communi
ty in this their very sorry affliction.
Fidel Diepolder, of Lafayette, Ni
collet county, lost six head of cattle
last week from the effects of feeding
on corn fodder in which considerable
"mutty com had been left unhusked.
If this smutty corn ot which A\e
hear so much about is really of such a
poisonous nature, and the causae ot the
death of so many cattle, faimeis can
bum up their fodder and cornstalks
none too soon.
