IN THE AUTUMN TIME.
No longer croaks the noisesome useless frog
In swamps 'where lilies bloom and cattails grow
And o'er the ground in woods and dried up bog,
The leaves of autumn-fall and restless blow.
Darkness with its canny, unseen things,
Comes creeping in on shorter sunless days
To spread the shadow of its sable wings
Where crickets chirp their curious roundelays.
In flocks, the ducks to southward take their flight,
And foxes seek their warmer winter's lair
While on the plain in wild and keen delight
The rabbits sniff the frosty, ice-kissed air.
In vacant seats where lovers passed the hours.
With saucy antics, squirrels hold their sway
While in the place where once were gorgeous flowers
The withered wrecks of summer's beauty lay.
Behind the distant, golden, sun-kissed hills,
The lengthenig shadows dark and darker grow
And to the ceaseless grinding of the mills
The echoe faintly answer, soft and low.
Across the path a deep festooning thread
Of cobwebs hang in mazy, mist-like gray
And in the trees that rise high overhead
The birds of summer rest awhile and fly away.
O'er mountains, plains and in the valleys low,
Insidiously the trost king fills the air
And tho his eyes with sparkling brightness glow
He brings the dying season everywhere.
All leaves in sunset hues are kiss'd by frost
The acorns open to the fleeting sun
By ruthless winds to earth their fruit is toss'd
For now the summer ends and winter has begun.

VOLUME XXIII. SWW ULM, E O N COUNTY, MINN., WEDNESDAY, OCT. 23. 1901.
Mr. and Mrs. Tanke Arrained Before the
Justice of the Peace Charged with
the Murder of John Wellner.
PROCESS OF THE LAW IS SLOW.
Parties Testify that they Heard the Shots
thatwere fired on New Years Eve
at an Early Hour.
The court room at St. Peter was croud
ed to suffocation to hear the testimony
that was to be taken in the Tanke case
yesterday. Four witnesses were called
Jos. Wild of Lafayette, Dr. Merrit of
St. Peter, Fred Stolz of New Ulm, Wm,
Dabheim of Klosaner.
Most of the testimony so far has
brought out nothing new except that
Danheim claims to have heard the two
shots tired early in the evening and
Wild and Stoltz can prove that Tanke
rode to the Klossner depot on horseback
and from there to New Ulm on the tram.
When court opened the public was
surprised by a change in affairs. Mrs.
Tanke had been arrested upon a charge
of murder and her husband was arrested
as an accomplice. Mr. Davis made a.
motion to dismiss both actions and the
motion was granted.
Mr. and Mrs. Tanke were arrested im
mediately upon a warrant charging them
jointly with murder in the first degree.
Joseph Wild, mayor of Lafayette, was
the first witness for the state. He testi
fied to having found the body and to
having notified Mrs. Wellner that her
husband was lying dead near the barn
that Mrs. Wellner refused to go out and
view the body and that she even refused
to look at it from the house. He made
an investigation and found the imprint
of anew pair of No. 9 overshoes about
the barn and no other foot prints. He
asked Mrs. Wellner if her husband had
purchased new overshoes and she said
be had not.
Later in the morning her two children
said that their father bad recently pur
chased anew pair of overshoes and they
brought them out from under a lounge
and showed them to Wild. They were
exactly the size of the prints in the
The state is certain that it has a clear
case against the prisoners. From pres
«ot indications the preliminary hearing
will take at least a week. There are
some forty-seven witnesses to examine.
The slate will show that Tanke and Mrs.
Wellner were criminally intimate before
the murder. It is said that the evidence
upon which the state will most depend
will be furnished by a woman who was
pat on the case by a Minneapolis police

N. U. H. S. YS REDWOOD TOWN.
The Review is indebted to Dwight
Mowery for the following very interest
ing account of the football game at Red
wood Falls Saturday:
Our hoys had a chance to play real
foot ball in their game with Redwood
Falls. The town team was heavier by
about eight pounds per man. But the
game was in many ways the most satis
factory one the high school team has
Redwood chose goal and the kick-off
went to New Ulm. By a series of bucks
and runs around right Redwood carried
the ball across the goal for a-touchdown.
The attempt at goal was successful.
New Ulm kicked *»ff to Redwood, who
advanced the ball as before, but failed
to make a goal. Scoie 11.
New Ulm again kicked off to Red
wood and afte» a few minutes of play
the ball went to New Ulm on afoul.
This was the first opportunity our boys
had to show what they could do with
tiie ball, and they used it well, making
splendid gams by line bucks. A drop
kick at goal failed and flie ball went out
of bounds near Redwood's five yard line.
The ball went to Redwood but in return
ing it by a punt it hit one of their own
men and s© went back to New U'm near
the ten yard line. In short time Bert
Hubbard was making through right end
for a touchdown. The goal kick failed.
Score 11 to 5.
Redwood kicked off to New Ulm,
gained the ball and advanced it into
New Ulm's territory. A remarkable run
around right resulted in a touchdown
for Redwood. Score 16 to 5.
Then time was called and the first half
The second half was opened by a kick
off from Redwood. The ball crossed
the goal line and was downed in New
Ulm's possession making a touch-back.
On New Ulm's first trial at kick out the
ball went out of bounds. The second
trial, however, was successful and the
ball was downed in Redwood's posses
sion but they failed to make the re
quired gains ind lost the ball to New
Uimon'idovns. New Ulm was held for
two downs and a punt on third down
.was fumbled by Redwood so New Ulm
kept the ball. The game proceeded
New Ulm bucking the line for gains,
Herbert Seiter carried the ball through
for a good gain and called it down. He
was about to place it upon the ground
when Jones stole it and ran for the goal
The play was identical with the one on
which Sleepy Eye claims to have made
a touch-down against New Ulm. Upon
reference to rules the ball was brought
back and put into play in New Ulm's
possession. New Ulai now bucked the
line for steady gains reaching the fifteen
yard line of the opponents, where the
ball went to Redwood on downs. After
this each play resulted in loss of ground
to Redwood, in spite of the fact that
they held the ball, until the ball went to
New Ulm about one foot from the goal.
A buck put the ball over the line but
the kick at goal was blocked. Score
for second half New Ulm 5, Redwood 0.
Total score Redwood 16 New Ulm 10.
ft should be understood that the Red
wood team was a town team and not
the high school team that was beaten a
few weeks ago by Sleepy Eye.
The Home Product is the Best.
Last week a traveling representative
of a New York milling concern worked
the city with a basket and one package
of "Wheatlet" which he declared to be
the best that was manufactured. He
sold certificates that were good at a
grocery store for a sample of the food.
The food product is probably all that
he represents it to be with the ex
ception that it is not the best on the
market. Those who have tried them
both are of the opinion that the product
of the New UlmjRoller Mill Co. is equal
to if not much superior to this foreign
product and besides can be bought in
bulk so that it is almost one-half cheap
er. To show the value of the home pro
duct and to show that the company is
not afraid to put it in competition with
any on the market, the New Ulm Boiler
Mill Co. has arranged with the grocery
store? that handle the Angelina Break
fast Food to give to all who call for it
one sample package free. It is fresher
and purer than most breakfast foods and
those who are not in the habit of using
this excellent article will do well to
make a test of its superiority. ^f.
