Discussing the record made by the
recently concluded peace conference
at The Hague, John W. Foster, the
eminent American diplomat, says:
"It is a record of which every lover
of mankind may be proud. It is
visionary to expect that wars among
nations will cease but let us hope that
there is the dawn of a new day when
right not wrong, justice not force, will
rule the affairs of governments when
no longer the world will be vexed
by the ambition of an Alexander, a
Caesar, or a Napoleon when the
patriot will delight/not in the triumphs
of formidable navies and vast armies,
but in the achievements of peace, in
dustry and commerce in the friendly
competition of the nations."
MUSIC AND THE DRAMA.
"Under the North Star,J' which
comes to the Turner Theatre on Janu
ary 5th, is an innovation in the way
of dramatic drama, being a distinct
novelty not only in theme, but in
scenic embellishments as well. The
plot of the play is taken from Wilkie
Collins' powerful novel, "The Frozen
Deep," a fact which of itself is a suf
ficient guarantee of the play's literary
merit. The scenes, painted especially
for this production from photographs
taken in the Arctic regions, are mag
nificent examples of the scene painter's
art, and the company engaged to pre
sent the piece in New Ulm is one of the
best that could be secured.
Mabel McCane will bring to the lead
ing local playhouse on January 26th
a musical comedy production that has
more than realized all expectations
and stamped itself as one of the "hits"
of the current theatrical season. The
company supporting Miss McCane
numbers over forty people.
Paderewski, the world-famous pian
ist, will appear in concert at the Audi
torium in St. Paul on January 15th.
THE COINAGE EXPERTS.
The two leading attractions offered
by the Twin City theatres this week
are De Wolf Hopper in Reginald De
Koven's new opera, "Happyland,"
and Wm. H. Crane, the great come
dian, in a new play by George Ade.
The scenic equipment used in the
stage production of "Under the
North Star" is unquestionably, ela
borate and original. Beginning with
the grand naval ball on board a Bri
tish warship, the action of the piece is
shifted to the huts of the castaways in
the Arctic regions, thence to Craton
Park, England, then back to the land
of snow and icebergs, and finally to
the beautiful harbor of St. John's,
Newfoundland, one of the prettiest
scenes in the world, the whole forming
a panorama of views that runs almost
the entfre gamut of scenic possibilities,^
Notably interesting are the massive
sets depicting the almost unknown but
wonderfully beautiful regions of the

New Ulm is to be favored this year
with another farmers' institute, the
date selected by the superintendent
being January 16th. Only two' ses
sions will be held, one in the forenoon
commencing promptly at 10 o'clock,
and one in the afternoon beginning at
1:30. Confined thus to one day, the at
tendance should be large. In fact, no
one in the neighborhood should miss
hearing the speakers and getting from
them all the information they can.
The farmers' institute is a traveling
school of agriculture and the instruct
ors employed are practical farmers
who haye made a success in special
lines and who have the ability to go
on the platform and tell others how
they have gone about their work.
L. A. Sweet of Fairmont, for ex

kett of Excelsior will deal with all
subjects connected with fruit and
vegetable growing and William Suter
of Welcome will talk on farming in
For the benefit of those who find it
impossible "to get up in meeting"
and ask questions, a box is always
placed on the platform into which
questions can be dropped concerning
matters that are of interest. This
question box is opened during the
afternoon session, and the answers
that are made to the questions are
very often a most interesting part of
There will be no regular program.
Only such topics as are of interest to
our locality will be discussed, and will
be taken up at such times during the
meeting as are most convenient.
Nor is it intended that the meetings
should be for the benefit of men only.
The women and young people will al
ways be interested in what is being
done, and are often the ones most apt
to take hold of the improved methods
that are advocated.

ANOTHER DAMAGE SUIT STARTED
Leavenworth Farmer Wants $600
For Injuries Sustained by
Suit against the city of Sleepy Eye
was started by Fred Horman last week.
Horman is a Leavenworth farmer,
and while driving into town last month
with his wife his buggy was overturned
into a sewer drain under construction
at the time in one of the principal
streets. Mrs. Horman, it is claimed,
sustained painful injuries in the fall,
and for these and for damage done to
the rig Mr. Horman asks the city to
reimburse him to the extent of nearly
The city, however, is really not to
blame in the matter and will have
little or no difficulty in shifting the
responsibility to the railroad com
pany by whom the drain was being
dug and with whom the liability for
accidents naturally rests.
One of the company's agents was in
Sleepy Eye shortly after the com
mencement of the suit, and it is con
fidently expected that a satisfactory
settlement will be made with Mr. Hor
man without going to trial.

Mrs. Dora Fierli and her daughter,
Antoinette, were found Friday after
noon in their home on Franklin street
in a condition bordering on unconsci
ousness from cold and hunger. Chief
Klause made the discovery, and it is
his opinion that the un,*ortunate peo
ple had been imprisoned in the house
of their own volition for nearly four
days. The fire was extinguished when
the policeman entered the place, and
there was no sign that any food had
been cooked for some time. The aged
lady, when aroused from a seemingly
unconscious condition, expressed sur
prise that Christmas had come and
gone, but the daughter who was dis
covered in a sitting posture close to
the bed failed to give any intelligent
answers when questions were put to
her. She was an inmate of the hospi
tal at St. Peter at one time, and it is
altogether likely that in an insane mo
ment, while her mother was asleep, she
locked the doors and permitted her
mother and herself to be overcome by
cold and rendered absolutely helpless.
