Successful Plow Test.
On Thursday Messrs. John Reckel and
A. H, Dobbins representing the new
make of plows, called the Klondyke,
gave a successful exhibition of its
merits on the Pilzen farm The plow
was set in the ground by a team of heavy
draft horses and afterwards a team ef
Shetland ponies, but little larger than a
good-sized dog did the plowing. The
writer and Mr. Dobbins also pulled the
'plow about two rods turning a furrow
sixteen inches wide and rive inches deep.
While the work was somewhat harder
than writing a paper, it showed that the
plow is of decidedly light draft and can
be successfully drawn by two horses and
operated by a boy. The exhibit was
witnessed by about twenty-five people
and all were convinced that the plow
was what it is represented to be. The
•exhibit was made lor J. Klossner jr. &
•Co., which firm has contracted for the
sale of the plow and have them on ex
liibition at their store in this city.

John Verglund who lives in the neigh
borhood of Sleepy Eye, drove into town
Tuesday with the dead carcasses of three
big wild turkeys in his wagon. He se
cured a large box and throwing the dead
tuikeys into it, filled it with ice and said
he would take them home for a harvest
feast. Mr. Verglund's story of the cap
ture of the birds was in effect, that he
was ^approaching Cumming's ferry from
the other side of the river when a flock
of seven turkeys emerged from the
woods into the road not ten rods ahead
of him. It was a case of mutual sur
prise on all sides and for a moment he
thought the fowls were of a domestic
variety. A second glance convinced him
of his error, and he seized his loaded
shot gun which be usually takes along
with mm when driving along the river
bottoms, and fired at the flock with
both barrels just as they began to take
to the woods. One of the turkeys was
killed outright and the two others badly
wounded. He gathered up his game aod
drove on to town. He says there area
good many of those birds along the bot
toms this year—Fairfax Standard.

With Plenty of Good Water About the City
S There is Still no Suitable
3 1 Place for Bathing.
"The wonderful success of the public
baths recently installed in St. Paul and
secured only through the untiring efforts
of one man, leads one to believe that a
similar condition might prevail in this
place if some man or the city council,
for instance would take hold of it. There
is a wonderful desire OB the part of the
people of this place to keep clean but
there really is no good bathing place ac
cessable, so that it is necessary to go
some distance out of town to get a good
swim. Jt&4's*A. C^, S&
Now it remains for the Council, the
Business Men's Association or some other
humanitarian organization to dredge
out the Cottonwood river forming a
basin of sufficient depth and size to ac
commodate bathers and construct an ap
proach to it that will make the water
accessable without having to walk
through sand. Such an enterprise would
cost but little and would be of inesti
mable benefit to the people of the city.
There would be no expense connected
with ruuing it. The only outlay would
be the cost of deepening the pool and
constructing the approaches. There
might be better places and better ways
This is only thrown out as a suggestion
We care for our horses and other ani
mals, why not look out a little for the
good of the boys and girls who find
pleasure and health in swimming. *-*f
A New System Needed.
The new primary election law presents
a conundrum to the politicians. What
will become of county, congressional and
judicial organization? There will be no
congressional conventions and no judi
cial conventions. The only county con
ventions will be those called *to select
delegates to the state convention. The
old system will have to be replaced by
something new, framed to fit the pri
mary law. *^&%&&%jfe
There are three possible ways of select
ing a county committee. First, let the
candidates pick the committee, after the
primary election second, let the county
convention which elects delegates to the
state convention also name the cam
paign committee third, the Minneapolis
plan, adopted to conform wiih the pri
mary law. This last is a sort of pyramid
system and is gaining in favor. It will
have many advocates, especially in Min
neapolis, where its workings have given
The objection to the first plan is that
a committee distasteful to the county
candidates have only seven weeks for
work, and would take the reins from the
old committee right in the middle of the
state campaign. To do effective work
for the state ticket, the same committee
should handle the campaign all the way
The second plan is open to another
objection. It might result in the nam
ing of a committee distasteful to the
county candidates and even hostile to
some of them. This same objection
might be urged against the Minneapolis
plan, but the pyramid scheme has this
advantage. It results in a committee
chosen by the rank and file of the party.
It gets more effective work out of the
Under the Minneapolis plan, when the
voters of the party caucus for the county
convention, each precinct selects a cam
paign committee of five. This committee
meets and elects a chairman and secre
tary. Tne chairman of the precinct
committees constitute the ward com
mittee. Each ward committee elects a
member of the county campaign com
mittee, and in Hennepin county the
country towns elect four members of this
committee, making seventeen in all. In
a rural county, one step in this progress
would be left out, and the county com
mittee would be even nearer the voters
than it is in Hennepin.—Minneapolis

The Sentinel takes great pleasure in
announcing that Rev. Geo. M. Eyrich,
of New Ulm, formerly for many years
pastor of the German Lutheran church
of this city, but for the past four years
located at New Ulm, has accepted the
almost unanimous call of that congrega
tion, to return here as its pastor. In the
many years of his pastorate here Rev.
Eyrich, endeared himself to all who met
him both in and out of his own congre
gation. Under his administration the
church became wealthy and prosperous,
built and paid for their handsome church
edifice and enjoyed a remarkable degree
of prosperity. The whole city will ex
tend to him a joyful and hearty wel
come upon his return here.
Rev. George Eyrich was born at
Tuttlinger, Germany, Oct. 17th, 1850.
He received his education at two differ
erent colleges in Germany, and in 1871
came to the United States, entering Con
cordia College at St. Louis, where 'he
took his theological course, graduating
from that institution, and being ordained
to preach at St. Paul in 1875. His first
pastorate was at St. Peter, lasting nine
months, when he went to Viola, Olmsted
county, Where he remained for almost
six yeais, coming to Le Sueur in 1879,
and remaining here until the fall of 1896.
He is President of the Southern Minne
sota District of the German Evangelical
church, and is regarded as one of the
strongest preachers of that denomina
tion in the state.—Le Sueur Sencinel.

.dSalzbrun Burns Out.
Henry Salzbrun seems to be having
his share of fires for his household goods
at Omaha burned out on Friday night of
last week. From the World-Herald of
that city is the following
"A fire at 46th and Capitol avenues
burned down a dwelling about 3 o'clock
Friday morning. One Omaha fire com
pany, then the Dundee fire company,
then another Omaha fire company ran to
the fire, but little was left to save. The
house had been rented by a cigarmaker,
who had moved in some of his goods and
gone to Chicago to wed. The house was
being papered and painted, in the mean
time. Neighbors think cigarettes of
workmen set the fire. The lessee of the
building, which, was owned by the Bel
knap Savings Co., was H. H. Salzbrun.
Insurance was $2,000 on building and
|2,000 on contents. Two theories are
held by the neighbors—one that the tire
was due to cigarettes smoked by paper
hangers and the other that it was the re
salt of a mysterious explosion, which
some claim to have heard."
