At last New Ulm is to have a theatre
in keeping with the city. «r*|Puial
arrangements have been completed by
which the contemplated improvements
in their property is to be made by the
•New Ulm Turnverein. Throng the court
esy of the building committee The Re
view has been pernitted this week to
examin&the complete plans and details
of the new building to be constructed
and, after looking them carefully over,
we h»ve no hesitancy in saying that thei
new building, in addition to its special
arrangements for the accommodation of
the society, will be one of the neatest
and most modern theatres in the state.
The present building will be torn
down, with the exception of that portion
now occupied by the bar room, and up
on the site there will be erected a mag
nificent brick and stone structure 62x112
feet in size and 72 feet in height from
the sidewalk to top of flag staff.
The main entrance will be on State
street, the main floor being six feet
above grade, the entrance being reached
by two broad stairways leading from the
walk to a porch 8x20 feet in size. In
the basement will be the gymnasium,
kitchen, dining rooms, dressing rooms
and baggage room. The gymnasium
hail will be 40x60 feet in size with com
modious gallery for spectotors.
The opera house proper will be reached
through a lobby 10x24 feet in which will
be the box offices. From the lobby 'the
patrons of the theatre will pass into a
large foyer upon the left side of which
will be the ladies parlor and toilet
rooms, with the same accommodations
for gentlemen at the right.
The plana show a capacity of from
800 to 1000, which will be seated with
opera chairs throughout. The stage,
which is after all the most important
adjunct of a theatre, will be 40 feet
deep by 60 feet wide with 28 foot open
ing, while the height from stage to grid
iron will be 46 feet giving ample room
for fly gallery and scene loft. An en
tire new outfit of scenery, including a
fireproof drop curtain, will be supplied
and all the stage appointments of every
description will be strictly modern.
There will be four private boxes, two on
each side of the stage, and the auditori
um will be finished in hard wood and
The entire building will be steam
heated and electric lighted and will cost
when completed not less than 120,000.
The plans and specifications are now in
the hands of the building committee*
Messrs. H. Heimerdioger, J. Pfenninger,
Charles Toberer and Fred Pfaender, and
it is expected that the contract will be
let by June 1st and that the building
will be completed by October 1st. The
work of tearing down the old building
will be commenced June 12, immedi
ately following the closing of the en
gagement of the Milwaukee Stadt
Theatre company which opens in the old
hall June 7 for three nights.

Tales" of Miss Alice Brown will not be

"April Showers," complete., ^All the
rustic beauty and humor which made up
the* "Tiverton Tales" are here lavished
on a novel whose plot is fresh and new
and whose characters are racy of New
England life. The tale turns on
theft of a bahy by its own reprobate
father, the runaway mother having died.
There is a counterplot of love,
deceit, and manly constancy^ For the

Lovers of old time minstrelsy were
were exceedingly well pleased by the
performance given by this combination
at the opera house Sunday evening. By
the term "old time minstrelsy" it is not
intended to convey the impression that
the show is out of date in any particular,
for it is not, but that it does come the
nearest to being the minstrel show which
we remember from the days of
childoood is certainly a fact, and it is
just in this respect that it has an added
charm. The average minstrel show of
the present time is toe much "circused"
as the expression is, the rage for novel
ties and sensational acts driving into
the background that genuine interpre
tation of the sunny south that the min
strel show is supposed to perpetuate.
The Rjjpard & Pringle—Rusoo & Hol
land organization goes back to the days
"befo de war" and for that reason, if
no other, is particularly appreciated by
all who witnessed the performance.
While the Giffins are without doubt
neat musicians by what stretch of im
agination they haye reached the conclu
sion that they "entertainprs," in the
sense which this term is usually applied
by the show going public, it is hard to
determine. An orchester which consists
of one violin, a cornet, a clarinet and a
flute, while very pleasing as a parlor
entertainment, is scarcely strong enough
to be placed upon the stage of an opera
house and expect to receive the patron
age of the people. The music rendered
by the Griffins is such as is played by
every local orchestra in the country and
falls rather flat upon the ears of a musi
cally educated community. The violin
ist, Miss Hoyle, was a pleasing perform
er who gave to the organization what
ever of character it possessed. Miss
Helen 0- Bick. the advertised entertain
er of the combination, was fairly good,
having excellent control of her facial ex
pression, but her selections were not of
a nature to give great scope to her elo
cutionary powers, if she has any. A
very small audience greeted them at
Turner hall Saturday evening but the
house was comfortably filled for their
second appearance Sunday evening.

The reception given by the Women's
Library Club in the rooms of the public
last evening was a marked suc
cess both socially and financially. As
everyone knows it was renlh a benefit
for the purpose of raising ..w#ney for
the book fund every cent of tne receipts
being turned over to the book commit
tee for the purchase of new books, and
all who were at all interested in the
library responded nobly. At this writ

exact amount taken in but are assured
that it, w»s very satisfactory. Refresh

interesting musical and literary program
Commencing Tuesday afternoon of
last week the German Lutheran State
Teachers Association held a three days
session in this city closing on Friday.
The officers elected for the current year
were: M. Kirsch of Faribault, president
Prof. Mohr of New Ulm, vice president
O. Stahlke of Hamburg, secretary. Six
new members were added to the associa
tion at this meeting. Following the
routine business incident to the opening
of the conference came the discussion of
of a paper by Reim of Mankato, on
"The library of a parochial teacher,"
the reading of which was continued
Wednesday afternoon and finished Thurs
day morning. On Wednesday forenoon.
Prof. E. Arndt, of Concordia college, St.
Paul, and O. Stahlke, secretary of the
conference, gave demonstrations in prac
tical school work with a class of chil
dren selected from the Lutheran school,
the former discussing the sixth petition
of the Lord's Prayer, the latter a certain
feature of penmanship instruction. On
Thursday afternoon and Friday forenoon,
two more papers were read and discussed,
one by Grossman, of Freeman, S, D., on
the education of children in the direc
tion of truthfulness, the other by J. Pip
korn, of St. Paul, on the question, "How
may children be interested in the study

NEW ULM'S EXCELLEKn- PARK SYSTEMS
MAY BE inPROVED. „J«.
The Pteatin* of Treee 1» Sooth German Park
a Deatrable Feature that aright he Accom
plished at Saudi Expenses
That New Ulm is particularly favored
by way of location and site is a fact that,
requires no argument to sustain. It has,
when the population of the city is taken
into consideration, probably a greater
number of costly and beautiful residenc
es than any other city in the entire state.
The homes of its citizens in point of ex
ternal beauty, are second to none in any
city in the land. Its public institutions,
its scbocls and churches, its streets and
parka are points of special comment by
the stranger who visits us either fcoSpur
poses of business or pleasure. The pride
which the good citizen has in bis home
city is in the present case certainly
justifiable, but it is not sufficient
that the citizen shall rest content with
present conditions. There are still many
things to be accomplished in the way of
adornment. In the matter of parks the
city is peculiarly fortunateN in the fact
that the location and topography of the
site is such that these may be maintained
at very low cost and with a minimum
amount of labor. North German Park,
as now arranged, is on« of the most
beautiful spots in the city and, for
the present at least, will require but
small outlay to bring it up to the stand
ard at which it should be kept, but it is
to South German Park that we would at
this time call especial attention. This
beautiful little plat of ground is as yet
almost virgin soil, but yery little work
having been done upon it, and The Re
view desires to offer the suggestion that
here be made an effort to retain for the
city one spot which shall remain
as close to nature as it may be
possible for such a place to be made.
No costly statuary, no expensive foun
tains, no elaborate decoration will be re
quired to make this spot an ideal one.
Trees and shrubbery are all that is re
quired. Make here a place where the
feathered songster and alert and bright
eyed squirrel may make their homes,and
where the wearied toiler of the city may,
under proper restrictions, seek after his
day of l»bor the refreshing shade and
commune with nature, so to speak. In
other words, give us one spot where we
may get our feet to the ground, one
place in all the city where we shall not
eternally and forever be admonished to
keep off the grass. This is no visionary
scheme. The city has the ground,
a beneficent Creator furnishes the blessed
sunshine and the gentle dew from Heav
en without money and without price,
and, if this suggestion meets with the
approval of the people, there is no doubt
but that a wise and enteiprising city
council will provide the small amount
of funds necessarv to carry out the pro
The date for the holding of the com
mencement exercises of the high school
has been fixed for Thursday, June 14,
the schools closing Friday, June 15th.
The exercises will be held in the evening
at the opera house and the principal
speaker will be Hon. W. A. Hammond
of St. James. There are this year but
four graduates, Joseph Preisinger and
John Seckel, in the Latin course, and
Dorothy Baarsch and Dora Hauenstein,
in the English course. The program,
aside from the address of Mr. Hammond
which will occupy about forty minutes,
and the presentation of diplomas, will
be furnished by the members of the class
and will occupy about one hour, the en
tertainment commencing promptly at-'
7130£ Although the number of gradu
ates is much smaller this year than here
tofore much excellent work has been
ae*t year will
find a larger class ready for graduation
than ever before^
