fffi£ jfi* I THEOLD KUABU Absolutely Pure THERE IS NQ SUBSTITUTE Jfe W Ul Revie Wednesday, Novembei 4, 1903. E it a It is to the shame of the newspaper profession that it is so easy for any person with a bluff and a few cents in money, to start what he chooses to term a paper. Men who don't know and who judge a man by the standard set by the definition of that word, be lieve that to be an editor is to accquire a grace of character and dignity of purpose sufficient to lift him above the oridinary man in intellect, at least, and yet how sadlyis this trust betrayed instance here is a sample of political literature from the pen of Paul F. Pehnel, who styles himself the editor of the Wanda Pioneer Press Those two blue streaks of "political grape shot" running parelled on the editorial page in that libel-wallowing sheet, the St. Paul Dispatch, last Sunday, seem to indicate that "the homely man" is to be the rudder to the steam-boat "tub," just as was stated by this paper a few weeks ago. The Dispatch also copies a few items from crank newspaper ignoramuses— typical of the leader they indorse. Not one of the men to whom he re fers but has been highly honored by the people of the state and are men of recognized ability in all the walks of life and who is the editor of th Wanda Pioneer Press: Two years ago he was an incompetent compositor in the Journal office in this city, and be cause his mother has done her best to give him a start in life and mistakenly placed him in a position to circulate his immature ideas as second class matter in the mails, he like many others in this state and in other states, dips his pen in the sewers of intellect and disgusts mankind with such edi torial rot. There is no dignity to such expressions, and though they are sometimes used by papers of standing, they are used by men who are equal in intelligence to those so disignated and the terms do not sound so mal appropriate. It is this abuse of the high office of the editor that has thrown discredit upon the weekly paper, and detracted from its usefulness in the community wherein it is published* in I to a The question as to what constitutes intoxication within the meaning of the law has just been passed upon by a judge of the United States circuit court in Vermont. The point rose in con nection with an insurance case, in which the company refused to pay the policy on the ground that the person injured, who had stated in his applica tion that he was never intoxicated, had frequently been seen in that condition. In an elaborate opinion the court de fined three degrees of intoxication: "In the first degree the ideas are uncommonly vivacious, but the in dividual perfectly retains the con sciousness of his external condition, and, in fact, may be said to be in com plete possession of his senses. "In the second degree the man has still the use of his senses, though they are remarkably enfeebled, but he is entirely beside himself, memory and judgment having abondoned him. "In the last stage, a man not only loses the possession of his reason, but his senses are so enfeebled that he is no longer conscious of his external relations." On the basis of this classification the judge ruled that the man had never taken the "third degree" and could not have been fully intoxicated.— Office Blotter. The appropriation for the pensions of the old soldiers by the government for the coming year is more than a million dollars less than that of last year and the reason for this is because of the death rate in the past year. There is much pathtos in the simple figure for it shows that the men who when out in their youth are answering the final call. It is time that the government gave each honorably dis charged soldier a pension. Do away with the countless number of clerks, examiners and agents and handle the business from the department office.

The love of contests in sport has not abated since the days of the Romans, if the foot ball game of last Saturday is any indication. The attendance was nearly equal to the best day of the state fair, and the price of admission was double that of the fair and in many cases doubled three or four times. It is safe to say that the Ro man arena would find as great a pat ronage today as when it was at the zenith of its glory, and this is pre sumed to be a civilized age. Convention of Philanthropists. An excellent program has been pre pared for the twelfth annual state con ference of charities and correction, which will be held in Minneapolis on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of next week. Addresses of welcome are to be delivered by Mayor J. C. Haynes and W. W. Polwell and speeches will be made by Frank L. Randall of St. Cloud, J. E. Painter of Minneapolis, Edward T. Devine of New York, and others. "The County Relief of Poor in Their Homes" is a topic which will be handled by Andrew J. Eckstein of this city, on the closing day of the convention. It is expected that this meeting will be the most im portant of its kind yet held in the state, it being intended to form a county com missioners' auxiliary. At their meet ing next Tuesday the Brown county commissioners will decide as to how many of their number will attend and they will probably prevail upon Sheriff Wm. J. Julius to accompany them.

Saturday's big football game be tween the universities of Minnesota and Michigan for the championship of the west resulted in a tie, 6 to 6. Neither of the teams was able to score in the first half but in the second Michigan succeeded is pushing the ball over for a touchdown and then kicking goal. In the face of this disadvantage the Gopher players rallied and two minutes before the game closed they sent a man over for a touchdown and a few moments later tied the score. New Ulm men who saw the game say that the enthusiasm which was demon strated when Minnesota made its points was simply indescribable. Al though part of the crowd had begun to leave the field thinking that the game was lost, they returned when the score was made and for a time pande monium reigned. It is estimated that 25,000 people attended the game and several thousand were turned away for lack of accommodations. Pork Takes a Slump. Hogs are not likely to bring as big prices as was the case last winter. During the last few weeks there has been a slump of more than 20 per cent in the market and buyers look for the figures to go still lower. As recently as the month of August from $4.70 to $4.80 was paid for hogs in New Ulm but now there has been a decrease of nearly $1.00 and at present the porkers are bringing from $3.90 to $4.20. In spite of this, however, the number being brought in here does not diminish and receipts upon the Chicago market are constantly increasing. Too many farmers have turned their attention to hog raising and as a result the supply is perhaps greater than the demand.

Boyd of Chicago, the latter representing the American Stoker company, have been in New Ulm since Monday conducting a test of the new boiler at the Eagle mill, and its stoker attachments. A test was begun last week but a valve connecting two boilers got out of order and the trial had ttf be postponed. If the present test is satisfactory the mill management will finally accept the boiler. To Have Rummage Sale.

Kelley to Appear in "The Gam Keeper" Sunday. Is Fo His Fine Acting and Swee Singing. "Shore Acres" Will be Played Here Early Mext Month. The attraction at the Turner Theatre next Sunday evening will be a novelty in the shape of a new romantic Irish drama, entitled, "The Game Keeper," in which the title role is taken by Mr Thos. J. Smith, the young singing comedian. "The Game Keeper" tells a story of Irish life, in which Mr. Smith figures as the hero. He is a jolly, delightful chap, full of mother wit, with a heart as big as that of the proverbial ox, and honest as the day is long without a fear, and without favor ready at all times to assist his friends and protect the down-trodden. A charming love story is interwoven through the play, in which our "Game Keeper" of course, takes the principal role. His enemies set snares for him, and even accuse him of murder, but he outwits them all, and in the last act, achieves the happiness he so well deserves. An interesting feature of the performance are Mr. Smith's songs which he knows so well how to sing, and which are interspersed through the different acts. The scenery used for the production is all carried by the company, and the illuminated chapel scene in the last act is said to be one of the most beautiful stage pictures ever presented. "Shore Acres," the familiar drama of rural New England life, comes to the Turner Theatre the first of next month. This play is in its twelfth year, and the ready welcome which it has received during all that time, with out lessening of interest, is a good evidence of the hold it has on poular sentiment. People crowd to the theater to see it each year, witnessing the same story enacted again and again, with the same interest that centers about a novelty. The way this play maintains itself in popular appreciation can be attributed to but one cause, its faithful representation of the comedy, tragedy, emotion of every-day life, as found in the country homes of settled communities. It awakens in the soul of each auditor recollections of scenes once familiar, feelings once a part of his" own life, and it does so without any clap-trap, sentimentality or un reality, without any false glamor for the sake of romance or incorrect pic turing due to ignorance. The fidelity of this play to human nature, its portrayal of the homely life of simple people, makes an appeal to rich and poor alike. Manager Chas. Griebel has booked "Quincy Adams Sawyer" for two per formances at the Mankato Theatre on the afternoon and evening of Saturday, December 5th. "Quincy Adams Saw yer" is a rattling good homespun play of life in a Massachusetts village— bright, fresh and breezy and filled with honest love. It presents unique phases of Yankee country life, and has the real country atmosphere. The play is promised as one great big laugh from beginning to end, with the sweetest love story ever told. It is presented in four acts and five scenes, all speci ally built and painted for this pro duction. Seats on sale atCentralNews Stand on December 2nd.

Miss Shaw and her excellent company will pre sent Ibsen's masterpiece at the Man kato theatre on Monday evening, No vember 9th. There was no performance of "Cir cumstantial Evidence" at the opera house Thursday evening. A very small crowd turned out and at 8 o'clock, the hour set for the show to start, the manager announced that no attempt would be made to play and that the people might secure their money at the box office. Later, to a Review re porter, the manager stated that it would have been folly for him to have continued with the performance. His share of the receipts would have been so small, he said, that he preferred cancelling the date altogether and allowing the members of his troupe to rest for a day. Sunday evening's attraction at the Turner Theatre, "The Past Mail," brought out a good house and the play was well received. The piece is elabor ately staged, and although the plot seems to suffer from the desire to obtain scenic effects, it is nevertheless filled with interest and the acting was highly satisfactory. The scenery used in the production is very fine, notably that in the railway scene and in the one showing the suspension bridge at Niagara Falls. Father Carey Injured. Rev. Fr. Carey of this city, met with a bad accident last Friday, from the result of which he is now laid up with a broken arm. He was entertaining a party of friends with a drive through Le Sueur county, and when about a mile beyond the village of Cleveland, the kingbolt fell out. The team made a dash and the front wheels of the carriage were pulled out. Fr. Carey and his brother, with the latter's boy, were riding on the front seat and were thrown to the grotfhd, and the ladies, who occupied the rear seat, werethrown upon them. When order was restored Fr. Carey was found to have a broken arm, the fracture being near the shoulder. His face was also quite badly bruised. The son of Mr. Dan Carey had a couple of teeth knocked out and was also quite badly scratched. —St. Peter Herald. It Keeps the Feet Warm and Dry. Ask to-day for Allen's Foot-Ease, a powder.

It gives tone to the minute blood vessels and the terminal nerve fibres. Catarrh cannot exist long where Peruna is used intelligently. Peruna seeks ont catarrh in all the hid* den parts of the body. Paul Landrum wilting from Atlanta, Oa., says: "In January last I began the use of your Peruna and Manalinfor what was termed organic heart trouble. At that time I could scarcely walk to my place of business without stopping to rest and on arrival felt completely exhausted* Had severe pains in my heart and general dizziness.

Finally one of my doctors sent me to Chicago and I met the same fate. They said they could do nothing for me, that I had cancer of the stomach and there was no cure. I almost thought the same, for my breath was something awful. I could hardly stand it, it was so offensive. I could not eat anything without great misery, and I gradually grew worse. "Finally I got one of your books, and concluded I would try Peruna, and thank: God, I found a relief and a cure for that dreadful disease. I took five bottles of Peruna and two of Manalin, and I now feel like a new man.
