The Most Foolish
in the World
Are those who neglect constipation.
If they knew, as all druggists and
doctors do, how disastrous are the
effects of this seemingly unimportant
ailment, they would go to almost
any trouble or expense that might
be neeessary in relieving it and pre
venting its return.
You can't have constipation for
two days without injury to your
geneial health It poisons the en
tire system, increasing the liability
to all forms of contagions and epi
demics. When neglected, it almost
universally becomes chionic, in
which case permanent cures are
much harder to effect. Chronic
constipation is the direct cause of
many deaths every year, and thro'
its preparation of the system for
e\ ers, pneumonia, inflammation of
the bowels, and many other serious
diseases, indirectly causes many
Anything that relieves constipa

it worse. What you must use if you
want to relieve constipation perma

A PRONOUNCED SUCCESS
Old Settlers' Festival at Turner
Park Attended by an Enthu
In accord with the spirit and prin
ciple of the progressive element—a
fragment of which is still with us—
which 50 years ago paved the way for
posterity, the pioneer and early sett
ler of New Ulm and vicinity received
due recognition at the old settler's
festival at Turner park Sunday after
noon and evening. It was, indeed, a
pleasure to once more observe the
sturdy old settlers in their wonted, un
hampered social intercourse. Once
more the spirit of congeniality, the
spirit of friendship, of universal
brotherhood was manifested and ex
emplified in the most accentuated
manner. As you beheld the sturdy
forms, the rugged features of these
pioneers, the cause of their success
was clear to you, and, unconsciously
probably, you found an expla
nation for the marvelous achievements
which stand to their credit today.
The undaunted courage and determi
nation, the unwavering perseverance,
which must needs go before all heroic
achievements was present and person
ified in our midst. The past delivered
over to the present these inestimable
achievements with the earnest admo
nition, that it is for us, the present
generation, not only to preserve what
we enjoy as a gift of the past, but in
gratitude to keep on building the
superstructure for which they so nobly
laid the foundation. Once more our
beautiful little city demonstrated this
one fact, that a community can in the
fullest measure en]oy unrestricted
pleasure without as much as marring
the moral conception of any one.
Here was a grand concourse of conge
nial, happy people, delighted in the
extreme, singing, laughing and with
their hearts full of glee and mirth. In
accordance with the custom of the old
fatherland and perpetuated in their
adopted country, the songs of well
drilled male voices were heard re
sounding the in air and reverberating
through the entire Turner Park.
As an inevitable result of the love
of song and music of those men and
women of fifty years ago, it is of
greatest satisfaction to the present
generation to note that this culture of
music in the early days of pioneer
life has found a gratifying climax in
the aggregation of splendid musici
ans of the 2nd Regiment Band which
exhilarated the entire attendance with
its excellent music.
After Mayor P. J. Graff, who by the
way, enjoys the distinction of being
the first one of the junior pioneers to
serve as the city's executive had wel
comed the old settlers in a happy
little speech, the chairman, A. J. Al
win introduced Capt. A. Steinhauser
as the speaker of the day. Mr. Stein
hauser in very forceful language and
most beautiful phrasing paid the
pioneers that tribute to which they
are so justly entitled. While he was
properly profuse, enthusiastic and
glowing in his praise towards the an
cestors he also, most earnestly ad
monished the present and coming
generations to a full realization of
their duties and responsibilities rest
ing upon them, in order that the le
gacies and heritages handed down to
us may not only be maintained but
further developed. It was love for
liberty and freedom of thought and
action which induced our fathers to
take upon themselves the hardships
and vicissitudes of frontier life and
not the quest of gold and riches. It
was a high, ennobling ideal, the pro
found conception of character and
manhood, which they sought to estab
lish, propogate and evolve. And,
surely, of this their existence during
the past half century has rendered
most incontrovertible proof.
that we, as the present generation,
may properly cherish and value the
sterling qualities of our pioneers."
The speaker was listened to with
profound attention and received the
most spontaneous applause.
Supper was served by the ladies
society of the Turnverein and the fes
tivities continued until a late hour in
Let us hope that the reunion of the
pioneers and old settler's festivals
may become a permanent institution
and that, as tha years roll by and. the
pioneers become fewer and fewer, these
celebrations may become correspond
ingly more precious to us all. ^i

R. Hammett's chickens and living off

home in the slough and was seen
several times as he prowled about in
search of food. Monday morning
Mr. Hammett saw him in his barnyard
and took a shot at him. This morn
ing Walter Laird caught sight of the
animal and despatched it with two
shots fortunately directed. The animal
turned out to be a young prairie wolf,
and Mr. Laird will be entitled to a

ing the fence around the tract of land
owned by the State of Minnesota at
Fort Ridgely. The fence is five feet
high, is made of iron and is said to
be very ornamental. It cost the state
the snug sum of $2,325, and at that
price should be something out of the
ordinary, at least. The balance of
the appropriation of $3,600 will be
used in fixing up the old commissary
building, and cement work, etc. The
people of this section of the state are
very generally badly disappointed
that the money should be used for this
purpose as they feel that additional
ground should have been secured, but
it appears the fellows in the city had
the inside track and the wishes of the
people ordinary cut no figure.—Fair
Last Sunday St. Paul's Ev. Luther
an church celebrated its annual mis
sion festival with appropriate divine
services in the morning, afternoon and
evening. Rev. Emil John of St. Clair,
Minn., occupied the pulpit in the
morning delivering an earnest sermon,
urging upon his hearers the duty and
necessity of missionary work, In the
afternoon Rev. B. M. Rafftesaeth of
Norseland, Minn., gave a very inter
esting lecture on missionary work in
South Africa with special reference to
his labors amongst the Kafirs, where
for many years he labored, teaching
and preaching the glad tidings of the
gospel under the most difficult condi
tions. He gave a vivid description of
that far-off country in general and the
modes of living of the Kafirs par
ticular. In conclusion he read the
Lord's prayer translated into the Ka
fir language. Believing this to be of
general interest to the readers of the
Review, we print it below. In the eve
ning the congregation once more as
sembled in the church and listened to
an interesting missionary sermon by
Prof. Bliefernicht. The m-xed and
male choir of St. Paul's church added
greatly to the edifying character of
these services by rendering appropri
ate vocal music. All the services were
well attended by the members of the
local church and others of this city.
This is the Lord's prayer in the Kafir
dialect: O Baba weto, O se Zulwini,
Mali shloniture Igama latto, Umbuso
ako, ma use, Intando yako ma wo

"With no injustice to the Rochester

nothing like Dr. Lough's playing was
ever heard in the city before. His
program was a varied one, containing
selections to suit the taste of all, and
the manner in which he manipulated
the keyboards of the organ was the

wonderment. The musician respon
