NEW ULM AND VICINITY.
To Our Subscribers.
We have the names of quite a large
number on our subscription list who
have been taking the REVIEW for sev
eral years, and are now indebted to us
for one, two, three and in a few instanc
es for even six and seven years' sub.
scription. We have sent out statements
time and again, requesting payment
but in too many instances without eli
citing any response whatever. It costs
something to produce a paper of tbe
character of the REVIEW and it can
only be maintained at its present stand
ard by the delinquent subscribers pay.
mg us our dues. This is but a small
item to each subscriber, but with us it
runs up high into the hundreds. We
must pay cash for paper, material and
office help, and we hope that our sub
scribers will not only see the justness,
but the necessity of this demand.
Every subscriber receiving the paper
through the mails can ascertain the
standing of his account with us by con
sulting the yellow label on the paper,
and we urgently request that these
knowing themselves indebted to us will
square accounts before January 1st next
Commencing with January 1st we shall
run the paper on a cash basis, and the
names of those in arrears at that time
for more than one year will be stricken
from the list and the accounts placed in
the hands of an attorney for collection.
We shall regret exceedingly to go to
this extreme, and hope it will not be
necessary, but we cannot run a paper

We will furnish the New Ulm RE
VIEW and the weekly Pioneer Press,
for one year, for two dollars. In this
way the most reading for the money
can be secured. Remember that the

subscribe for the two, at $2,00.
Next week we will send out with the
REVIEW a beautifully illustrated holi
day supplement. It will not be an ad
vertising sheet, but will be replete with
choice reading appropriate for the oc
casion. This Christmas offering will
be sent to all the regular subscribers of
the REVIEW, whom we are confident it

Mowery & Heideman, proprietors of
'the New Ulm poultry yards, have had
printed at the REVIEW office 2,000 illus

togo intoitquiteextensively. The great
est care is beeing taken to keep and
breed the birds pure, and their patrons
can rest assured of getting just what
they order. They invite an inspection
of their yards any day except Sunday.

The air was exceedingly frosty last
Sunday-morning. The telephone and
telegraph wires had taken on a coating
of frost until they looked like clothes
lines. Even old sol seemed to be effect

appearance of the moon. Mercury was
below zero, and altogether it was a
very disagreeable morning.
The cranky correspondent of the
Sleepy Eye Herald intimates that in

Last Wednesday Senator McMillan
introduced a bill granting Col. Pfaen
der of this city $Q83 for property de
stroyed by the burning of the govern
ment building at Fort Ridgely Jan. 19,
1865. The Pioneer Press says that the
Colonel's claim is upwards of $2,000,
and that it is for property destroyed at
New Ultia during: the Indian outbreak
in 1862, but this is no doubt erroneous.
Defective sidewalks are very danger
ous things in more ways than one to
have around. A party by the name of
Munson has been awarded damages in
the sum of $1,800 against the city of
Mankato for injuries sustained in that
city, owing to a defective sidewalk.
This is not the first sidewalk damage
suit that has been decided against Man
kato. New Ulm and other cities
should profit by Mankato's experience.

The "Evaugehsch-Lutherischer Syno-
dal-Bote," the first number of which
appeared esterday, is the latest ven
ture in journalism in this city. The
paper is published under the auspices
of the German Lutheran Synode of
Minnesota and is strictly a church or
gan. The paper is a four-page sheet,
somewhat smaller than Das Nordhckt,
but the publishing committee is already
talking of enlarging it to eight pages.
3000 copies of the initial number were
printed. In the engraved heading of
the paper is a very good likeness of the
Dr. Martin Luther College in this city.
The composition and press work is done
in the REVIEW office, and, being
wholly printed from new type, the pa
per makes a very neat appearance.

his children gone, he knew not wheth

their work.Later developements showed
however, that a daughter 12 years of
age, with a younger child, had made

distance of sixty to seventy-five miles,

The commission of the Republican

Thursday to lose one eye by a nail ac

St.Paul on Friday to consult an'occulist.
As the pupil was broken there is no hope
of saving the eye, however.
Frank Lindmeyer, a laborer employ

Considerable dissatisfaction is ex
pressed by our merchants because more
is being paid for wheat at the new sta
tion in the town of Milford and at Gib
bon and Winthrop than in^ New Ulm.
We understand that at Milford 78 cents
was paid last Saturday, while at this
station the price was only 72 cts. This
difference in price, we understand, was
the result of competition between the
two buyers at the former station, and
is a matter that concerns only them
selves. But why buyers on tbe Minne
apolis & St. Louis road can and are
paying right along from 5 to 6 cents per
bushel more than is being paid in New
Ulm. is a matter for investigation by
the Board of Trade. Of course farmers
are not blamed for hauling their wheat

the present state of affairs is very de
moralizing to trade in New Ulm, and
