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.

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,
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
The funeral and burial services were
conducted Monday, by Rev. M. W.

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.

'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. Mass.
