The Mankato Linseed Oil Company pays within 10 cents of the Chicago Market for flax seed delivered at their mills.

The funeral took place Friday and was largely attended. Mr. Waibel formerly conducted a saloon at St. James, but came to his home last spring, expect ing that a change would benefit his health. He leaves a widow and one child. There are plenty of people in New Ulm who have been so shortsighted as to invest in Real Estate in other cities, never thinking that there is money in New Ulm property. These parties will probably feel agrieved that suburb real ty sells at $143 per acre. Weigand Hauenstein sold seven acres of land in tne northern Miburb composed of Frac tion S and Outiot 73 for $1000. last week. It may be that this big .price was paid on account of the new court house which is to be built next spring, but we are inclined to think that the piice is not too high for New Ulm prop erty. The following marriage licenses were issued during September: Chas L. Roos to Caroline Zieher, L. C. FredncksQn to AnnaMorgensen John Singer to Margaretha Wiesner, Bernhard Waibel to Selma Pfeiffer, Arthur L. Rice to Lizzie Rossbach, Theo. W.

The case of German Friton against the county commissioners et al was argued before Judge Severance at Man kato Monday. Mr. Thompson of Slee py Eye appeared for the plaintiff and Lind & Hagberg for the defense. The decision had not been rendered at the time of this writing. The city council have extended the time for the removal of obstructions from public streets, alleys and lands, now occupied by private parties, to October 15. They also granted Mr. F. Aufderheide time until November 1 to repair the streets damaged bv him. The proceeds of the entertainment given by Blind Boone, the musical pro digy, and by Stella, the twelve year old vocalist, at Turner Hall this evening, will go to Mrs. Mowery. The enter tainment is good and the object a worthy^ne. We hope that a full house will greet the performers.

SHEEP, 25 per cent MELODEONS and ORGANS, 30 pe cent A short time ago a mower, belonging to Michael Zupfer, living in town Cot tonwood, was demolished by some un known parties. Mr. Zupfer accused Miss Theresa Schaible and a hired man, working for Henry Schaible of having done the deed. As the parties were innocent, Mr. H. Schaible, brother of Miss Schaible, had Mr. Zupfer arrested for malicious slander. The latter was tried, found guilty and fined five dollars and costs. Mr. Zupfer should charge this to experience. It is one thing to accuse a person and another to prove the charge. Charges of this, or any other kind, should never be brought un less the accuser can prove the charge. The private bankers of this state held a meeting at St. Paul Friday for the purpose of agreeing upon the posi tion they should occupy in regard to the law passed by the last legislature, prohibiting private banks from using any corporate name so long as such bank remained unincorporated. The general sentiment of these present was that the law is unconstitutional. Ac cording to the wording of the act no private bank has a right to issue a draft which has "any incorporate name there- on." If the law is constitutional the Citizen's or Brown County Bank of New Ulm cannot issue a draft on any incorporated bank in any other city. The bankers in session resolved, that if the law was good they would open a private bank in St Paul. The battalion of Minnesota Guards, composed of a number of different com panies under command of Col.Bobleter, of the Second regiment, left for Chicago to attend the international encampment Sunday afternoon. CoL Bobleter, and the Governor's staff left St. Paul at 2 o'clock in the afternoon over the C. M. & St. P. road. At La Crosse they were met by companies I, F, E, B, and who left their towns on special trains in time to connect at La Crosse. Com pany K, of Duluth, went directly to Chi cago from Duluth. The whole party arrived in Chicago at the same time, 1 o'clock Monday morning. After break fast they proceeded to the encampment grounds. There will be 250 in the bat tallion. Col. Bobleter1s St Peter. staff is officered as follows: Colonel, G. W. Mead, Man kato major, G. S. Ives. St Peter judge advocate, lieut J. W. Tawney, Wino na surgeon, W. H. Magie, Duluth adju tant A. J.

Death of Rev. Mowery. Although not unexpected, the an nouncement of Rev. C. C," Mowery1s death both surprised and pained his many friends. He breathed his last Saturday afternoon. Mr. Mowery has been ailing for a long time, but never, until the last few days, did he expect a fatal outcome. About July 1. he went to Colorado, expecting that the climate of that State would be beneficial. He returned two weeks ago, the climate not improving his health as expected. The immediate cause of his death was inflamation of the small intestines, Biographical. Rev. Christian Mowery of the Congrega tional Church in NewTJlm was born near Berne, Switzerland, Sept. 22. 1844. When he was nine years of age, his father brought the family consisting of the mother and six children to this country, and settled upon a farm near Massilon, Ohio. Christian Mowery en tered the army at the breaking out of the rebellion and served his country until the close of the war. It was the exposure during this service that laid the foundation of the disease which car ried him away jn prime of life. He and his brother saved their earnings during the war and bought a little farm in West Virginia on the Ohio River for their parents. That has since been the family home, but the parents are both dead. The brothers still live in West Virginia one sister resides in Califor nia. The father of Mrs. Mowery is a Congregational minister, Rev. L. L. Fay, and lives in Southern Ohio. Christian Mowery worked in a photo graphers office in Detroit. Mich., and there became a Christian, and began a course of study for the ministry. He studied at Olivet College, but gradual from Marietta College, Ohio. When he entered the divinity school of Yale College at New Haven, Conn., from which he graduated in 1878. Through all his long course of study he had no means to support himself except what he earned, and was always ready and willing to do any honest work which would help him to complete his studies. From the theological school he went to Coolville, Ohio, where he preached with much success, and where many were won to Christ through his labors. He was ordained there in 1878, and married to the excellent lady who is now his widow. He also leaves four little children, whom to know is to love. He came to New Ulm in April 1882 and proposed to make this place his permament home. It is not too much to say that he had no enemy in the world and was universally beloved, not only by all the people of New Ulm, but by all elsewhere who have known him. The funeral and burial services were conducted Monday, by Rev. M. W. Montgomery of Minneapolis, Rev. S. S. McNeill of Sleepy Eye and Rev* F. Preine of this city. Mr. Montgomery was a classmate at Yale of Mr. Mowery and they have long been warm personal friends. Mr. Mowery gathered a Congrega. tional church of 16 members in New Ulm which is the only English speaking congregation in the place. They have built a pleasant church edifice and the high esteem in which Mr. Mowery was held gave much promise to his wprk. We unsterstand that Mrs. Mowery ex pects to remain in New Ulm. What it costs to feed the inmates of Minnesota State Institu tions. Secretary Hart of thestate,board of charities andcorrections has hadinprep paration for seme time a tabulated state ment showing the cost of food for the inmates of the various state institutions for the year ending: July 31, 1887. An abstract of the table gives the follwoing figures showing the average cost of food for each person receiving board: Bread stuffs, $5.60 butter and milk, $8.63 eggs, $1.63 fruit 2.60: meats, fish and poultry, $15 sundry supplies, $8.27 vegetables, $1.40 freight 55 cents. N The total cost for the year in the dif ferent institutions per mnividuai was as follows. St. Peter Hospital for the insane $43.40 Rochester Hospital for the in- sane,$47.50 School for the Deaf,$13.16 School for the Blind, $49,16 School for the Feeble Minded, $39,83 School for Dependent Children, $33.10 State Re form School, $34.24 State Prison, $43.50. Average cost per individual, $43.50. fcjM The entire cost for all institutions was $119,507.21, distributed as follows St Peter hospital $43,620.40 Ro chester hospital, $34,100,90 school for deaf,$6,302.53 school for blind.$2,433.- 27 school for feeble minded, $5,493.29 school for dependent children, $1,138. 55 state reform school, $7,848,27 state prison,.$18,576. WiM The wholesale liquor house of P. H. C&rny of Mankato has been closed on several attachments. Assets are esti mated at $20,0000 which includes near ly $16000 outstanding book accounts. His liabibilities are said to be but $7500. Business depression and too many out standing accounts are U^J^^b* 4hc 'he case of German Friton against the County Commissioners et al. was argued before*Judge Severance at Man kato Monday. Mr. Thompson of Sleepy Eye appeared for the plaintiff and Lind & Hagberg for the defense* The de cision had not been rendered at the time of this writing.^ ^8 \As an instance of the extreme meas ures which the oponents of a new county building are resorting to, we repeat the following, which was related to us yes terday. The plaintiffs in the case had an expert* come up from Mankato to New Ulm Friday to examine the old county building. This "expert" made affidavit which was used before Judge Severance Monday, that he was a build er for fifteen years, had examined the old Brown County building, found it safe, in excellent condition and repair, and practically as good as new. After hearing of this affidavit the attorney for the defense felt like dropping the case, but knowing that it would never do for him to give up so easy, he rallied and began making inquiries. The result of his labors was as follows The expert had been clerking in the municipal court and is now an insurance agent. He hasnever built anything but foun dations and excavations for cellars. He has to support the foundation of his own building with props in order to prevent a sudden drop. The latter part of the affidavit explains why the expert con siders the old Brown County building safe. He probably heard of our old board of commissioners bracing up the building with heavy timbers after last years storm and as it worked well in his own cellar, he thought of course that it would do for our building. If there are any more such experts Tun ing around loose we would like to get their address. In regard to the question of the County's title to Court House Square our Sleepy Eye friends can now rest easy. Judge Severance the correctness of whose judicial determination they will hardly question had no hesitancy in holding it good.

Atteid the Fairs^ Every farmer should unite uimself to some agricultural societffwhich holds an annual fair, and he should exert himself to become a useful as well as a working member by so doing he will lift himself up to a higher level, and it will stimulate him to more carefully in vestigate every new step of progress made in agriculture. The farmer who always stays at home will not discover the importance of keeping up with the times in fact he will not realize that he is not at the front but as soon as he begins to work in an agricultural soci ety, and gathers up the best products of his farm to place side by side with his neighbor's, he finds his proper level he can see at a glance just where he falls below, as well as where he excels others. Nothing will take the conceit out of a man more thoroughly than to place such products of his farm as he feels quite positive can not be excelled, by the side of that of a neighbor, whose products are s* much better than his that he cannot help seeing it. A farm er who finds himself thus beat, will be very likely to go home with a determi nation to make such improvements in his methods as will enable him to carry to the fair the next year, products which shall come up^to his neighbor's.
