As announced in the press notices, it was one that "got across" to the audience, full of appeals to the sympathy. Thei was nothing complex or involved •bout the plot, it being an old theme but the setting was pretty and effec tive. The backwoodsmen who were the chief characters in the story were not so coarse as to be repellent as is cften the the case in melodrama and, in fact, none of the characters were so exaggerated as is usual. They seemed like real people. Another merit was their ability to enunciate distinctly so that the audience lost nothing of the dialogue. A fair audience listened attentively, at times were held spell bound when little "Pete" told of the creatures of out doors that talked to him. All in all, the evening was most pleasantly occupied in listening to a company that is far above the average road aggregation. Hutchinson, Minn., another of the Minnesota settlements which felt the force of the Indian Uprising in 1862 has been celebrating the 50th anniver sary this week. The history of Hutchinson is a close parallel for that of our city. There were the murders on the outskirts of the settlement, the rush to the town, the siege of the stockade, and the final killing of Little Crow about six miles north of the village nearly a year later. Hutchinson has always been a leader in educational matters and they have a very fine school system. One of the important events of their celebra tion was the laying of the cornerstone of anew high school building which is to be erected on the spot where the old stockade stood in '62. Mrs. Ellen Harrington who was one of those who sought shelter in the stockade was a visitor in New Ulm during our cele bration. The Men's Club of the Congrega tional Church has planned a winter of activity along broader lines than ever before. Supt. Hess has been elected President, G. A. Ottomeyer, Vice President, Wm. Meile, Secretary and Treasurer. There will be a series of lectures and debates during the winter, on each second Thursday of the month. Local speakers of the various organizations will be asked to address the Club and in this way it is hoped to promote a feeling of brotherliness between those whose aims have been more or lees antag onistic to each other heretofore. The first meeting of the season will take place next week! Thursday, October 10th. There will be a debate on the question "Is Euthanasia ever justi fiable?" The affirmative will be opened byCRev. Wheeler and the negatively by Dr. Strickler. The questionrwill deal with the case of a personjmortally injured who is suffer ing greatjagony Jand to whom death would be a relief. After the opening arguments the discussion will become general. There:will also be Zither music under the ^direction of L. B. Krooa. 14 1 W Monday was the 10th wedding anni versary of Capt. and Mrs. Joe. C. Hotmeister and the band boys serenaded them in the evening.

Dainty re freshments were served. Mrs. August Heimann living on North Broadway met with an unfor tunate accident recently. It has been necessary for Mrs. Heimann to walk with crutches for some years and one day last week when she was alone in the bouse the telephone rang so inces santly that she decided finally to answer it. In trying to get to the phone Mrs. Heimann slipped and fell to the floor breaking her left arm right above the elbow. She could not rise to get help and it was an hour before she attracted anyone's attention by breaking the window with her crutch and calling. Mrs. Heimann is doing as well as could be expected but the injury is quite a severe one because she has not been very strong for a long time. VOLUME XXXIII.

Johnston have been received at the Review office the past week and placed in the windows for inspection. The single orders which bare been placed with us or with Mr. Johnston will be filled as rapidly as possible but it should be remembered that hundreds of pictures were ordered and in order to do satisfactory work sufficient time must be allowed It should not be forgotten that Mr. Johnston must give a part of his time each day to securing new pictures in order to keep up his business.
