Bold jfisb a" aquariums. The interest in keeping Gold Fish is constantly increasing owing, we think, to the fact that breeders have learned to propoxate them successfully and now Gold Fish are kept in many homes in all parts of the country. A. well arranged Aquarium adds an elegance to any place and is one of the most desirable orua merits for the parlor. Where shall we keep the Aquariums? Anywhere so the air is pure ana not too much sun. The temperature of the wa ter should be about 60°. Fish can stand freezing point without injury. Use well water, springwater or nvei water aud •change every 5 or 6 days. Feed Gold Fish prepared fish food or white wafers, but up in small boxes at 10 cents per •box with directions on the cutside aud do not feed them anything else. Two Oold Fish and Aquariams cost $1 aud there is nothing that will give as much pleasure in your home. How can we get one of these Aquar iums with 2 Gold Fish.

Romeo and Juliet. Without a doubt the most meritorious production in the line of drama that has been given to the people of this city will be the play of Shakespear's Romeo and Juliet at the Turner hall on Thurs day night by the Wm. Owens company. Everybody has read Shakespear but only a few have been privileged to witness an interpretation of the play by an artist of the ability of Mr. Owen. The time and money spent at tiiis play will not be wasted. It is one of the few things that come along that should appeal to the public for support on its merit. The same company plays in Mankato tonight and the advanced sale of tickets has already exceeded anything that has been given there this fall. The Review has given so much space to this play lie cause it believes, from the comments of exchanges and those who have seen Mr. Owen, that he is worthy of a generous support. Tickets may be had at the City Drug ritore. The Ladies' Fair. Among the features of entertainment and diversion that have attracted during the week, none have been better patron ized and more satisfactory than the fur that was held at Turner hall Saturday and Sunday. The executive ability of those who had the fair in charge was something remarkable, lor they had a method at every turn whereby there was an opportunity if not a real necessity for spending money. The hall looked very pretty and the meals that were served there were the very best. The attendance,was all that could be desired on Saturday and on Sunday a larger number took advantage of the excellent weather to visit the fair. The one-act comedy attracted a large number and enough stayed to tin dance bunday night to miiKe the evening very pleasant. The ladies have a way ot conducting those things that wonderfully discouuts the work of th men, and they are to be congratulated upon their success. TEST OF TIME is the advantage of permanency. R.

Minnesota St. New Ulm, Minn. Vv The Trade That Comes to it From the Rich Country With Which it is Surrounded. NO CITY BETTER SITUATED FOR TRADE Im the Heart of One of the Richest and Best Farming: Districts in the United States. With the passing of the summer months and the return of the long nights of winter, and the season when people are casting about for a place to buy their winter supplies, and the holiday supplies that go to make up the pleas ant surp'ises for their friends, it is grat ifying to the merchants of this city to know that they are located in the midst of one of the richest farming countries in the world, and at tfte time when the husbandman is maiketing the fiuits of his year's labor and is casting about foi a place to buy at the lowest figure, it is also gratifying to know that there ii not another city in this section of the state where prices are better, both for selling an,d buying. New Ulm lias the great advantage of its size as well as its location, for, be sides the trade that comes to it from the nearby farms l* is drawing trade from the veiy gate ways of other villages and towns This is due to the fact that the faimers, upon whom most of the towns have to depend for their support, have become conservative buyers. They have passed that Ptage when they have to pay what is asked because they had not the cash to pay down for tluir purchases and can almost dictate the price for what they want. This con dition exists to a greater extent around this city than it does around neighbor ing tt.wns and for that reason a system Of prices prevails that gives the bnyero opportunities they would not otherwise get. The Review takes thi3 occasion to call the attention of its readers to the fact that while there may be difference in the price of some things, owing to the amount of freight, more than is paid in Minneapolis, still the price of staple at tides and those whicfi are now being displayed for holiday trade is so near those of the larger siores of the cities that no one can afford to send away for anything until they have first assured themselves that what they want cannot be obtained here. A visit to the stores this fall ha9 con vinccd the wiiter that it is just as easy «o obtain bargains in New Ulm as in Minneapolis, in fact in more than one instance we have asked the price paid for gaiments bought from ihe clothing stores of this citv, and were surprised to learn that it was below that paid for siiiilar aitides from the cities. We like to see reciprocity where equality prevails, and just as soon as there is discrimination shown, then is the time to change. We are satisfied that the merchants of this city are doing their best to meet the demands made upon them tor the best they have at tne loweBt prices, and we are pleased that it is being noticed and appreciated by the people who have trading to do. NeW Ulm Commandery Complimented. The Marshall News Messenger of last week, in its writeup of the installation of the new Commandery at that place, has the following to say of the work done by DeMolay Commandery: The conferring of the several degrees (tf the order was most excellently per formed, and although the De Molay commandery of New Ulm is but a fiw mouths eld, it is impossible that anv commandery in the state could have done the work more proficiently. Es pecial praise was awarded Eminent Com mander Boblcter and Prelate Updyke for the thorough and impressive perform ance of their laborious duties. •g*'** The worK of conferring degrees was completed at half past five o'clock Sat urday morning, when the Sir Knights repaired to Hotel Atlantic, where a most elaborate and satisfactory banquet was served by Sir Kuight Fred Cook, the landlord. At a later hour the visitors w%re shown about the city and generally en tertained, and when they repaired to their special car on the Northwestern road, they were accompanied by a large delegation of the new Marshall com mandery, all of whom were enthusiastic iu praise and thanks for their presence and valuable assistance, gg WMM* ."aftO-M 1u SKV& What the Merchants Think of the Sun day Closing* Agitation. The Review this week has taken the trouble to interview a number of the merchants of the city regarding the Sundav closing agitation. A number lefuse to be quoted and would not give an opinion one way or the other. Those who did give opinions were very decided in their views: P. H.Behnke.-[ always kept closed on Sunday, that is the law and what is fair for one is fair for all. Held Bros.:—We have always kept closed on Sunday and will continue to do so wiiei her others close or not. If we can't make a living without keep ing Open on Sunday, will go out of bus iness and give the next man a chance. C. O. Riem:—All business places should be closed on Sunday. F. W. Dietz .—What's fail for one is fair fbr all. one closes all should close. C. A, Zelle:—The parties ttat kept their Mores open all day Sunday have brought this trouble on, for one extreme follows another. Six days in the week is enough to do business. Win. Haubnch:—ILs Sunday is sup posed to be a day of rest, all business places should be closed without except ion for if one place is open it compels auotuer Crone Bros.:—Always in favor ot clos ing up but are sorry that the law had to take hold of it. J. F. Neuman:- Since the law com pells him to close will keep closed but deems it an injustice for one or two to keep ipen while the rest are closed. Bastiiti & Bushard :-Everybody should mind their own business and not their neigh bor's ltuemke& Co.:—In favor of closing. L. Buenger:— Would rather see all business places closed on Sunday. Ochs & Baer: Always kept closed and the rest can do what they please. HetUe & Marti:—Let everybody tend to their own business. Hatdwarc men are willing to abide by the law. Forster Bros.:—Let them do as they please. If they with to open let them do so if not, they don't have to. J. C. Toberei:—Don't care what they do. Machinery men have no complaint to make except that in harvest time it be comes a necessity to keep open on Sun dav. W. Hummel expresses himself as be ing master of his own business. His store is his home and he has a right to do in his home as he pleases. G. A. Ottomeyer:— I am emphatically in favor of keep ing all the stores closed on Sunday in order to give the clerks and the s'ore keepers an opportunity to rest. They are entitled to rest the same as any other class of men. I have kept my store closed on Sunday from the begin ning and will continue to do s». I will even go farther and enter into an agree ment to close at 8 o'clock, except on Saturday nights. A number of farmers were also inter viewed and the per cent of those who are incensed at the action of closing on Sun day rr-about the «»ame as with the mer chants. Some say they will go else where to trade it they can't trade when and wliere they want to and others say it is a* fail for the merchants to have a day of rest as well as other men who have to work. Dangerous Gasolene Lamps. The insurance companies maintain at their ^xpenae an- examining committee of experts at Chicago whose duty it ie to examine and report on all gasolene lamps and any gafolene lamps that have not been approved by this board of in spectors are not considered safe by the insurapec companies, and wherever these non-approved lamps are used an extra charge of 25c per $100 of insurance is made and must be paid, but if an ap proved lamp is used the fact should le reported to the respective agents. Every owner of property should ascertain whether a lamp he intends to purchased is an approved one. A list of approved gasoline lamps may be seen at the insur ance office of Wm Pfnender Jr., Schell's block. Be sure and get an approved lamp before buying. 4?,i Ik- Another lot of those new style If you are looking for Cotton Blankets ISk"^ Don't forget to make Goo GooT^yesTat the window of Haubrich the Jeweler at any time from Nov. 25 to Dec. 25 He has something to give away which will be in the window during that time.
