The Minnesota Post misconstrues
our item of last week that 'Marshall
was afflicted with that dread disease
diphtheria," We ment the town of
Marshall and not our city marshal
Gommel. He perambulates our streets
from early morn till late at night and
don't much look as if he was tioubled
by that or any othei disease.
The Mankato Review says that the
German farmers in Blue Earth county
go through their wheat fields with a
scythe or hoe, cut out the weeds, and
move them fioni the held, giving the

where it is done the lteview thinks
the ciop will be enough unpioved to
pay for it.

Sleepy Eye's gain. Maik says he'll

that'll be lough on the ice merchants.

The remains were followed to their
last resting place yesterday by a large

The tramp John Meyer, who stabbed
Chas. Otto in an affray at Nicollet a

The Congregationalists of the Min

annual meeting at Loreno 10m June
1215. The opening sermon, on Thurs
day, will be by Rev. H. C. Simmons of
Marshall. The Marshall Ministerial
Association will also convene at the
same time and place. Two councils
are called to meet at the same time
one to dismiss Rev. O. P. Champlin
from the Pastorate and the other to
ordain Mr. V. E. Loba who takes his
place. Two or three candidates are
expected to be examined for license.
Interesting topics for discussion will
be presented by different members.
All are cordially invited to be present

The Postmaster General has instruct
ed postmasters to return or send to
the dead letter office, without trying
to find the proper addresses, letters
which are imperfectly directed. The
State must always be indicated, as
"Chicago, 111," or "New York, New
York," and except the most promi
nent cities, the county should also be
indicated, as "Owatonna, Steele coun
ty, Minn.'' or "Colusa, Colusa county,
Cal." A lead pencil should never be
used for addressing letters and all
flourishes and useless dots, &c, should
be dispensed with. Some people think
it is nice to dot an envelope up until
it looks as if it had been a fly roost for
a month or two, but route agents and
postmasters will hereafter promptly
forward all such letters to where they
rightly belongthe dead letter office.
Another new time card has been is
sued by the Winona & St. Peter rail
road and went into effect last Snnday
at noon. Under the new arrangement
the day passenger from the east now ar
rives at 5:45 p. m., about two hours
earlier than heretofore. On the other
hand, the night passenger fiom the
east now arrives at 9:55 a. m., 25 min
utes later than heretofore. Freight
train No. 15 now passes St. Peter at
11:15 a. m. and arrives in New Ulm at
2:05 p. m., so it will be seen that pas
sengers for New Ulm leaving St. Paul
on the morning train on the Sioux City
road will be obliged to lay over in St.
Peter until evening. The eastbound
passenger trains arrive and depart a
boat as heretofore. For all further
information consult, the ''Traveler's

This distinguished gentleman arriv
ed in our ity last Sunday morning and
was received at the depot and escorted
to Turner Hall by the mayor, council
ors, city clerk, music section of the
Turnverein and the Governor's Guard.
In the afternoon he was introduced by
Peter Scherer in a few pithy remarks
to a large assemblage of people in
Turner Hall. After a few preliminary
remarks, in which he said that it was
not merely by accident that he came
to New Ulm, as it had long been his
wish to visit a vicinity and colony from
which he had read so much,he delivered
a splendid lecture on "The German Ele
ment in America." He referred to the
influence the Germans have exercised
by their learning and energy in mould
ing the institutions of America, from
its discovery by Columbus until the
present time, and said that a German
sailor named Turker had accompanied
an Islandish expedition which discover
ed America 500 years before Columbus
made his discovery. He then gave a
brief history of the causes leading to
the immense emigration of the Germ
ans to this country, and stated that
the first German settlements of any
note were made in Philadelphia and
Geimantown, Pennsylvania, and in the
Mississippi valley. Of the 40,000 citi
zens in Philadelphia in 1775, one third
weie Germans, and in 1776 five compa
nies of Germans were organized in
Pennsylvania and four in Maryland
and formed into a German regiment
which served with distinction under
Gen. Washington. He stated that on
June 9th, 1776, the declaiation of inde
pendence was first published in the
German language by one of the two
German papeis then published in
Philadelphia. He said that the French
revolution of 1789 and the great wars
following it stopped for a time the in
flux of emigrants from Europe, but
after peace was concluded and the
German confedeiacy was organized
the German people demanded "unity
and liberty," but the monarchial gov
ernments met their just and humane
demands by reactionary and oppressive
measures, and emigration again com
menced. At the conclusion of the re
volution of 184849, and the monarch
ial despots again became masters of
the situation, the tide of emigration
became immense, and between the
yeais of 186070, 970,000 German
emigrants had ariived in this country,
being nearly 100,000 each year on an
average. He stated that amongst the
10,000,000 emigiants that arrived in
the United States from 1820 up to 1879
over 3,000,000 were Germans. He
said they had come not with the sword
to plunder and kill, but to find free
dom and a permanent home under the
protection of the glorious stars and
stripes. He alluded with pride to the
fact that 200,000 German Americans
had fought in the Northern armies
during the late rebellion, and by their
patriotism had saved the best nation
upon earth from falling asunder. He
scouted the extremeStates-right doctiin
and dispelled the idea, fostered in some
quartets, that the United States might
be dissolved into divisions and princi
palitiesthat States and communities
may eventually have independent gov
ernments of their own. He said that
the patriotic people would never allow
this to be donethatjthis was a na
tion that was inherently indissoluble.
These patriotic remarks were warmly
applauded. He said that we should
all feel and act like we belonged to
one family sailing in one boat, and that
the destiny of the Republic was our
destiny. He paid a glowing tribute
to the English language, which he
said would ever be the dominant
tongue of the nation, and admonished
his German friends to leave nothing
undone to become masters of the lang
uage and thereby become enabled to
take a more active and intelligent part
in the politics of our adopted country.
The General said that through learn
ing, energy and work we had become
the greatest nation on earth,, and he
pictured out a bright future for the
country of our adoption. He closed
his lecture with a few remarks address
ed to his countrymen who had fought
by his side in the memorable struggle
of 1848-49, several of whom live in
our midst. The address was listened
to with marked atention by the large
audience, and the speaker w&s fre
quently interupted by applause.
At the conclusion of the lecture the
Governor's Guard paraded in Turner
Hall park and were addressed by Gen.
Sigel in the English language. The
General paid a high tribute to the
citizen soldiers of the United States,
and said that it was on them that the
government relied in case of an e
mergency, as our standing army was
now a mere skeleton. He said that
all young men should be versed in the
manual of arms as the time might come
when their country would need their
serviced. The General speaks as flu
ently and foricibly English as he does
German, and his address to the Guards
was listened to with intense interest
by all present. In the evening the
General was serenaded at the Dakota
House by our Msennerchor, to whom
he also said a few kind words. On
Monday forenoon, in company of sev
eral of our citizens, Gen. Sigel visited
the town of Sigel.which was named af
ter him. Quite a number of people had
assembled at the school house near
Hummel's lake, which had been taste
fully decorated by Mr. Villikanji and
the scholars in honor of the dis
tinguished visitor. Mr.Anton Mander
feld made a few remarks welcoming
the General to the town which had
been named after him, in honor of his
distinguished services to his country.
The General then addressed those
present in an appropriate little speech
which was warmly applauded. The
General was then presented with a
wreath and a boquet by two little girls
after which the party registered their
names in the school register. The
occasion was one which will ever re
main green in the memory of all' that

large number of our people congregat

to partake of the hospitalities of Pa

Gen. Sigel, Rev. Alex. Berghold, F.
Burg, L. Bogen, Peter Scherer, Capt.
Nix, Jacob Hottinger, /Anton Zieher
and Dr. Berry the latter being the
only "Dutchman" present. Later
in the day the music section of
the Turnverein arrived and discours
ed some sweet music. The Gen
eral left our city Tuesday morning,
highly pleased with his visit.
The Catholic Fair at Union
was, as we already stated in
week's issue, a grand success.
Wednesday both in the afternoon and
evening the attendance was very
large and towards the last the voting
for the various candidates became
very exciting. The various prizes were
distributed during the afternoon.
Ticket No. 57, held by C. Bach, won
the large and beautiful bedspread.
Ticket No. 17, held by Nic Gulden,
won the beautiful worsted picture
made by Miss Hanna Collins and
ticket No. 153 held by Miss Yaronica
Rosskopf, won the large wax doll.
The voting was kept up until about 9
o'clock when the ballot boxes were
opened and the votes canvassed. There
were a total number of1340 votes cast,
which netted the church just $134.00
The most interest was centered on
the county officers, aldermen and
business men, as may be seen by the

Peterson received 225, the balance be
ing devided up amongst 18 other as
pirants. Mr. Peterson of couise was
awarded the piize, a beautiful pair of
slippers and silk stockings. For the
most popular Alderman Jacob Brust
carried off the prize, a handsome silver
headed cane, he receiving 248 votes
out of the 265 cast. As a matter of
course, Louis Felkel was voted the
most polite saloon keeper which how
ever, didn't please him near as much
as did the announcement that he was
also voted the "best looking fellow
in town." Loui carried his honors
lightly but in order to pacify his van
quished competitors for the last men
tioned honor he had to "set 'em up"
all round. Ottis Musser was not for
gotten by his lady friends as they
unanimously voted him the most
polite "Ladies' man." Miss Amalia
Graeff was voted the best young lady,
Mrs. A. Schell the best housekeeper
and Bernhard Fesemeyer the most
useful citizen. Everything passed
off pleasantly and not a harsh word
was heard during the continuance
of the fair. The proceeds netted the
church nearly $700.
At^the regular meeting of the Gov
ernor's Guard, held June 3d, 1879, the
following resolutions were unanimous
Resolved, that the Governor's Guard

We have been favored with samples
of the celebrated Spencerian Double
Elastic Steel Pens, and after trying
them feel justified in highly commend
ing them to our readers. They are
made of the best steel, and by the most
expert workmen in Europe, and have
a national reputation for certain de
sirable qualities which no other pens
seem to have attained in so great per
fection, among whieh are uniform e
venness of point, durability, flexibility,
and quill action. It is thus quite na
tural that the Spencerian should be
preferred and used by professional pen
men, in business colleges, counting
rooms, government offices, public
schools, and largely throughout the
country. Indeed so popular have they
become, that of the "Number One" a

3ut few persons, who insure tneir
property against loss by fire and light
ning, take the trouble to carefully
read their policies when they receive
them and are unaware of certain con
ditions contained therein, the none
compliance of which will render their
policies void or cause them unneces
sary cost and litigation in case of a
loss. During the hard times many
persons have been obliged to mortgage
their property on which they have an
insurance and were not aware that
they must notify the company, in
which they are insured, immediately
of the fact for if neglected and a loss
occurres, the companies, or most of
them, are under no obligations to pay
for it. Another instance in which no
tice is required is the putting up of ad
ditions to insured buildings, or putting
up others near by, increasing the risk
to those insured. The wise will take
a hint, if you can't read your policies
get some one to do it for you, or
inquire of local agents who are always
ready to give desired information.
I have been asked why I don't write
oftener for the Review. Well, the
reason is, I am one of those unfortu
nate cusses who are compelled to earn
their bread by the sweat of their brow.
Ceaseless unremitting toil is the price
of my daily bread, so I don't have a
moment of leisure time to write and
then again I think when the Review
comes to hand the space that I would
occupy is used to better advantage.
This town is making great efforts in
the cause of education. There has
been three large frame school houses
built in this town this spring. The
hnmble old quail trap has been super
seded by a fine building 24x32, and it
was dedicated a few evenings ago to
the noble cause of learning by J. Gill
fallen who delivered one of his charac
teristic sky rocket lectures. They had
to open the windows to allow the mete
oric fragments to pass out or the glass
would have been all shattered and
scattered to the four minds and tte
pieces never could have been collected
so as to make anj thing out of them
again. Like all his lectures, it was a

Mike] Dinneen says he has got the
most dutiful and affective gobbler in
this State. He has devoted nearly four
weeks in keeping for his female mate
in her lonely duty of incubation, and
has never left her sight but sits by her
day and night comforting and encour
aging her in her natural and laudable
efforts to raise a family. Part of the
time he insists on having half the eggs
so in case of any trouble in the family
hereafter he will have a legal right to
one half the product of their tedious
toil. This gobbler is a model for the
best of husbands.
Last Sunday, June 1st, was a day of
general jubilee amongst Father Sand
meyer's large congregation, as it was
the occasion of a class of forty young
boys and girls receiving their first
communion. The Rev. and indefatig
able Father had been giving the child
ren instructions for several weeks pre
paratory to this happy occasion. The
girls were all tastefully dressed in
white and their heads crowned with
white vails and evergreen wreaths,
They marched in pairs to the altar,
bearing lighted candles in their hands,
where they knelt,to receive the holy
sacrament of the eucharist. On each
side of the passage to the altar stood a
row of beautiful little girls holding
lighted tapers symbolic of the light of
christian youths to take the first step
towards a happy immortallity. The
church was tastefully ornamented with
green wreaths reaching from the ceil
ing and extending around the whole
building. The windows of the church
wete stained in artistic style for this
happy occasion as well as for all future
time. The artist that done this credit
able piece of work is a gentleman from
I see the Wide-Awake man is trying
to draw the REVIEW into a controversy
over the county seat business. He
commenced by saying parties were cir
culating petitions to trade off part
of our county but he don't state where
the petitions will be sent to, whether
to Yakoob Khan or Citywayo. I be
believe it tobe a useless chimeria of
his own brain having no foundation
whatever. He appears to want to cre
ate some excitement so as to make his
paper interesting to his few readers,
but, as Senator Davis said about the
party strife of the two old gladiatorial
parties in Congress, the people are in
no mood for that kind of policies now.
I think the people of this county are
more interested at present to pay up
their present private indebtedness be
fore they will assume any more debts,
especially of a public character. Most
of them need a new house to cover
their own heads more than they need
another court house or jail. The cala
boose will do Sleepy Eye for some years
I counted the number of REVIEWS
as the postmistress distributed them
and found they numbered thirty which
was the largest number of any one pa
per coming to this office. The Mil
waukee Herold came next in point of
number. The Wide-Awake, which
might more appropriately be called the
"Fast-Asleep" for all the news we get
from Loreno, numbered three. We
get all the Loreno news in the Review
from Mr. Busted. The Wake-Awide
is devoted to the interest of a few bus
iness men, giving them free puffs in
the local columns, where one would
naturally look for some local news.
One week I counted 29 items devoted
to the interest of four firms, although
those business firms were already suf
ficiently well advertised^ There was
just one item of local news last week,
that was an account of the attempt to
burn the calaboose. *$ jS%i

The Danes of this vicinity celebrated
their national independence day last
Thursday in Allison's grove, near the
lake. By 11 o'clock the park was pret
ty well filled with enthusiastic ladies
and gentlemen and soon thereafter
Mr. E. Hanson delivered an oration,
after which a raid was made on the
many good things that had been pre
pared for the occasion. Two hours were
devoted for dinner after which Mr.
Johnson,of Home, made a ringing
speech, at the conclusion of which the
crowd dispersed all being highly pleas
ed with the festivities of the day.
We hear a great deal of talk about
how "we uns" are going to celebrate
the glorious Fourth, but as yet lias re
sulted in nothing but talk. Let some
of our enterprising citizens take hold
of the matter and start the ball a rol

we can not agree upon a programme
that will not only keep our own peo
ple at home but also induce outsiders
to come here to observe the day. We
also need a new flag as our old one Was

A SPLENDID BODY.
Is a rarity, and the reason that few
men or women reach this standard, is
that they neglet themselves and fall
into decline. Some simple trouble of
the blood, lungs, nerves, liver, stom
ach, kidneys, or genital organs devel
opes into a chronic character. The ef
fect is soon observable in the appear
ance and feelings of the loveliest wom
an or the handsomest man. "It is
never too late to mend," however, if
Sandaline is used. The dyspeptic is
cured of all trouble. The nervcus
sufferer is soothed. The victim of
liver complaint, kidney affections, or
blood disorders,is thoroughly restored.
All those who have become affected
with painful-complaints, find in Sanda

Harvesting machines and farm ma
chinery is now being talked up with a
vengeance. M. H. Gamble and his
agent Mr. Thomas Brophey have a

are prepared to give low prices and

week and set up a couple of machines
and a horse hay rake.
We are anticipating a very large and
patriotic celebration in Burns the com
ing 4th. Already a meeting has been
held at which the preliminary arrange
ments were made and committees ap
pointed but as we were not present we
are unable to give the conclusions
reached in regard to the programme,
but it will be made public in due time.
A certain young man of rather pre
possessing appearance and excellent
address, while spending a few days
vacation visiting at a neighboring
house, not many miles from Burns,
met with a little mishap. A number
of-young folks had been called in to
have a social time and the young
gentleman in question pranced around
gaily until in an unlucky moment he
suddenly disappeared and vanished
from vie,w thiough the cellar door
which had accidently been left open,
his head coming in rather too close con
tact wih the floor as he passed through
to the lowei regions. We are glad to say
however that aside from a short sea
son of insensibility, and a slight rui
fling of his best SuHday go-to-meeting
suit, no damage was done. He now
gently whispers to all his sympathiz
ing fi iends "Beware ot the blaisted
cellar doors when you go visiting."
"Go ahead" is the paiole of the en
terprising citizens of Burnstowu. The
thrifty village, situated on a pictur
esque spot on the banks of the Cotton
wood liver, is getting a very conspicu
ous improvement in the shape of a
Catholic church majestically looking
down from the top of a beautiful hill.
The lower frame work of the steeple
was raised Friday last. The whole
lenght of the building is 68 feet and
32 teet in width, and the steeple will
be 75 feet high. This impiovement is
a sure sign of energy as well as ot li
berality and good will, of moral im
provement in christian perfection, and
is a credit to the inhabitants of this
vicinity. Rev. Alex. Berghold and
Mr. E. E. Dickerson, the builders, say
that they will erect an edifice of
lasting value, and to raise the neces
sary means for that purpose a Fourth
of July festival should aid this noble
enterpiise. No pains will be spared
to make said festival a success and it
is to be hoped that all the inhabitants
of this vicinity will attend. A valu
