PIGSKIN KICKING HAS BEGUN S S ad I N a at a W Of a a W in in am re a in O S re a an Over me N a a Football spirit at the New Ulm High school has been awakened again and the season of 1904 promises to turn out a fast and winning team. The boys have now been at work for a couple of weeks and hard practice for nearly two hours every afternoon is beginning to show results. In fact, considering the handicap under which the team is laboring the showing at this time is exceptionally good. The eleven this fall is composed largely of green men. Of the veterans who won such honors in the few games played last year only three have re turned to don the moleskins eight have graduated or left school. H. Lsibold, the brilliant and speedy left end of the 1903 eleven is captain of the present squad and playing fullback: a Brey, old left-tackle, is now manager and as righ-half will be call ed upon to do a good share of the end running and line plunging while at center Sidney Alwm will be expected to repeat his stonewall stunts. Of the other veterans none have come back. Arthur Dengler, left-half, Fred Hubbard, fullback, Chas. Emmerich, right-end, Oscar Boock, quarter, and Clarence Mowery, half-back, will all be sorely missed, and new men are being broken in to fill their vacancies. Among the new players are many of promise, but whether they will show the football sense of their predecessors re mains to be tested in the games this fall. Of the new men Edward Larso is doing good work at right-end. He placed in one game last year as right guard and had the New Ulm season lasted longer would undoubtedly have become a seasoned player. He has been assigned the task this season of guarding right-end and is expected to work well into the position. William Collins played substitue half-back in 1903 and in the practice games so far has evinced a developing football sense in his place at right-tackle. At left-half-back is Bert Hubbard a A fine line of BOX CANDIES always on hand. All sizes, filled with fresh, choice Bonbons at Max Burg's Corner Store.

Eckstein, PHARMACIST & «*h?&3 brother of last year's fullback and a player who gained some valuable ex perience on the team two years ago. He was out of school last year. The other positions have been held in the practice games so far by Leo Wendt, Theodore Steffen, Raymon Juni, Alfred Seiter, Alfred Mueller and Chas. Schoregge. The last two named are in a pretty race for quarter-back and doubtless both will be given a try out in the first game of the season. Joh Ahrens is new to the game but shows signs of being made of football stuff and will doubtless make the team next year. He is now playing as sub stitute. Although he has returned to school, Alfred Kretsch has not yet come out on the field in his suit and captain Lei bold is trying a to get him into the the game. Should he decide to get out he will, with his experience on last year's team, be a big addition to the strength of the squad. They may be some shifting later on but the line-up in the first game will probably be as follows: Right-Tackle W Collins Right-End Edward Larso Right-Guard Leo Wend Center Sidney Alwin Left-Guard Theodore Steffen Left-Tackle Ravmon Jun Left-End Alfred Seiter Left-Half-Back Bert Hubbar Right-Half-Back a Brey Full-Back H. Leibold Quarter Alfred Mueller or Charles Schoregge BOARD MISCOUNTS VOTES For a While F. J. MiHer Was Thought to Be Elected. Now that the primaries are over, the returns all in and the candidates breathing easier, the men chosen by their parties have settled down to the task of winning out at the casting of ballots in November. Tha the con test will be very lively in Brown coun ty does not seem likely. Many of the candidates, both republican and democratic, have no opposition and the others with possible one or two exceptions are expected to win handily. The primary election, as the tables show, was tame enough, although there was considerable excitement in the contest between Henry R. Schwartz and J. Miller for the republican nomination for treasurer. Whe the county canvassing board met at the courthouse Thursda Schwartz was credited with 495 votes and Miller with 477, which gave the former a majority of eighteen. I the counting by the board, however, Miller was found to have 497 and Schwartz only 495 and the courthouse was filled with excited spectators for a short time until the count was gone over a second time and the error found. The fight put up by Albin Carlson against W C. Miller for register of deeds also had elements of excitement in it in certain localities where the vote ran close, but the totals gave Mr. Miller a decisive majority of 266 votes. It is to Mr. Carlson's credit that he takes his defeat so gracefully. The commissioners nominated, it will be seen, are Andrew Hoffmann in the First district and Andrew J. Eckstein in the Second district, both democrats with no republican opposition, and in the Fifth district, J. O. Rude, republi can, and George Ros democrat.

Mathias W a and Andrew Webe win and the town board in Renville county loses in a suit just decided by Judg Powers and brought by the two former last spring to determine the correctness of a new survey which meant the loss to them of a good sized strip of land if allowed to stand. More than that, the new survey if correct meant that the main street in the village of Bir Island was laid out incorrectly. Walser who is a prominent farmer in Wes Newton, and Weber, who for many years taught the parochial school in St. George, owned a tract of land adjoining Bir Island on the east. The town board tried to move the established right of way which an directly through the village as its main street, six rods onto the plains tiffs' land, claiming that that was the true line, as a recent survey ad set the stakes there. The decision just handed down es tablishes the true line as being on the old road Hoidale & Somsen con ducted the case for the plaintiffs, while County Attorney Murra and Ex Lieutenant Governor Smith were for the board.

October 1 is the date set by the New Ulm bowling associa tion for the opening of its regular sea son and the outlook for a fall and winter of much enthusiasm in the sport is bright. W the new alleys were started the old clubs were divided in their affilia tion and the result was that interest in the league of clubs gradually died. At the present time out of the old organi zations only the Pioneers remain. The Columbias, the Generals and the Doc tors have ceased to take an active part in bowling affairs as organizations. The Pioneers have hung together, however, and with the Company A team, the Buengers and the Haubrichs will soon start the first balls rolling in the new series of league games which Manager J. A. Vetter has planned for this year. It is his idea to have the captains of the four teams get together at an early date and arrange upon a schedule which will be complete for the season. It is possible, also, that two other teams may be formed. A num ber of the players in the old disorgan ized teams have a longing to get into the game again and it is rumored that they wUl organize two new clubs. The members of the four clubs are not all picked yet, there being one vacancy on both the Pioneers and the Buengers. The personnel of the teams as now made up is: Pioneers—Fred Stolz, captain, Dr. E. Mueller, Chas Arbes and J. A. Vetter Buengers— L. J. Buenger, captain, Albert Meyer, a Hackbart and Herman Raabe Company A—AlbertPfaender, captain, Fred Hubbard Louis G. Vogel, Arthu Dengler and Albert Vogelpohl Hau brichs—William Haubrich, captain, Adolf Burmeister, Chas. Emmerich, Ferdinand Bleck and Albert Mathke. On the allies there has as yet been no movement to start a series of league games nor have any regular clubs been formed, but a Bur thinks that before the end of October there will be a movement in that direc tion. If such is the case it is not im probable that there will be match games back and forth between the two allies this winter. Company A and the Pioneers met Thursda evening in a series of three games. The rolling was close at times and exciting. Company A won the first two games, while the last one went to the Pioneers. SUIT INVOLVES $35,000 Local Company Would Recover for Starved Cattle. M. Mullen and Charles Stuebe ex pect to leave next Monday for Kansa City where the Minnesota & Dakot a company has a suit before the United States circuit court involving $35,000. Last May when the great flood de cended upon the Missouri city destro\ millions of dollars worth of pro perty and many lives the cattle com pany, in which Messrs. Mullen and Stuebe are large stockholders, ad a consignment of 2,300 cattle caught in the great tie-up of railroads at Kansa City due to a diverting of their ship ment to Kansa City when it was billed to Atchison. The animals were driven out of the cars and away from the reach of the water onto a viaduct over the yards. Here they were shut off from all aid and for seven days and seven nights they received neither food nor water. The result was that 700 of the deserted beasts perished. Suit has been brought against the railroad companies to recover the loss. N S S I E W A N E No! I did not ask for a bottle any cheaper, or twice as large, or one made by yourself.

Tha I am sure of—for stomach ache. FARM MACHINERY RAISED Brown County Assessments Boosted 20 Per Cent. a machinery and tools were given a big boost by the state board of equalization Thursday, the assess ments being raised in nearly every county in the state from 100 to ten per cent. I Brown county the raise was twenty per cent. I 1904 returns from the various counties showed a falling off of $251,376 from the figures of 1903, and it was the original intention to raise the assessments to the last year figures. It was found as they proceeded that this could not be done, as where ad joining counties showed a difference in values not warranted by the con ditions it was necessary to raise the values in each county so as to make them alike. or this reason 'the 1904 valuations as fixed by the board will foot up to $5,493,628, fifteen per cent higher than last year. Nicollet county was treated to a twenty per cent raise and Blue Eart figures were put up ten per cent. In the valuation of gold and silver plate the board also made some big raises, Brown county coming in for an increase of 100 per cent, while Nicollet county is increased twenty-five per cent. The latter county is also raised thirty-three and one third per cent on diamonds and jewelry. Gave Minister a Scare. Rev." J. Korsm living in Brighton, Nicollet county, was given a bad scare last week by someone who borrowed his bicycle for several days. Mr. Korsm discovered when he went out to get his wheel from the shed where he kept it that the machine was gone, and he immediately drove into New Ulm and notified the police. Leaving the apprehension of the thief and the recovery of his bicycle in the hands of Chief Adolf Klause, the minister left for St. a where he stayed several days. On his return he found to his surprise that the supposed thief had brought the wheel back as quietly as he had taken it. FATHER WANTS CUSTODY Little Daughter Subject of F. W. Brigg's Petition in Court. On the charge that the child is neglect ed and does not get proper care, W Briggs has petitioned the court in St. a to grant him possession of the 8-year-old daughter now in the custody of his former wife, Mrs. W Close of New Ulm. Whe Mr. and Mrs. Brigg were divorced last Februar the child was given into the keeping of Mrs Briggs and has lived with her since. Mrs. Briggs was married to Mr. Close last August and now the father brings his petition. Teachers in the public school and others familiar with the conditions say that the child is receiving the best of care and it is not likely that she will be taken away from the mother. Hoidale & Somsen have the defense in charge and Mr. Hoidale leaves for St. a next Saturda to conduct the hearing.
