Prof. Herman Hein Talks In
structively on Physical
The second monthly meeting of the
Men's club of the Congregational
church was an eminently successful
one. The organization is broadening
out and embracing various lines of in
terest and this action is meeting with
the unqualified approval of not only
the church and club members but of
the citizens in general because, by
bringing together into harmonious re
lations the varying creeds represented
in the city a work of upliftment and
betterment will be accomplished that
would fail if the wide divisions exist
ing were emphasized by studies along
narrow sectarian lines. The Methodist
Church club is also working out a
similar, program under the direction
of their new pastor, Rev. Hohn, and
this winter promises to be one bf ac
tivity in church circles- Rev. Hohfl
was one of the speakers at the Congre
gational club meeting, nis topic being
"The Watchword of the Church." The
speaker won the appreciation and en
dorsement of his hearers by the ex
pression of broad-minded sympathetic
views in religious matters. He
pointed out the fact that no one move
ment or effort of the present day is
broad enough to cover the require
ments of the times. Not "Men's For
ward Religion," nor "Orthodoxy," nor
"Liberalism," nor "Socialism," nor
."Education," but "Evangelical" must

waiting to be done: -Jtr&i &** *.'
Several ladies were present at the
meeting, a special invitation having
been extended- to all interested to be
present. The Zither club furnished
the music for the "evening, and Her
man Hein, director of physical cul
ture, occupied the remainder of the
time with his address on the Object
and Methods of Physical Training in
Primary and Grammar Schools. Mr.
Hein's talk covered his subject thoro
ly and was listened to with interest
and followed by a general discussion
which should result in advanced ideas
in the matter of physical culture. Mr.
Hein said in part as follows:
"We find a great diversity of opin
ion on this subject. Some say that
school gymnastics ought to consist
simply of games, while those who go
farthest in their demands, cite the re
nowned physiologist, Prof. Virchow,
who says, 'It is my belief that only
one-half of the school hours should be
devoted to study and the rest to phy
sical training and games,' and other*
declare that, 'It is necessary to lift
all physical training, or whatever goes
by that name at present in many of
our school systems from its present
inferior position to a higher level, and
place it on a sound foundation as a
truly educational departments
"These latter claim that the first
and foremost requirement of any sys
tem of physical training for the public
schools is, that it has for its object
the harmonious development of the
child's body according to well defined
physiological, psychological, and peda
gogical-laws. *y l/**? •',/'.

The Turkey Shoot scheduled for
next Sunday is already a guaranteed
success. Tbe weather we are enjoying
makes everyone feel happy, turkeys,
duoks, geese and chickens are being
received in gratifying numbers for the
shoot and tbe big prize, a live deer,
has again been generously donated by
the Schell Brewing Company. Be.
sides all this felicity, the cottontails
were accommodatingly plentiful and
there is no doubt of there being

Citizens who attend the shoot are
assured of a- right royal good time
and all should take an interest in the
affair because it means the promotion
of the interests of the Agricultural
Society and of farming interests in
general, There are many ways of
showing public spirit and it should
not be forgotten that supporting this

Library Board Nets $120.75
The concert undertaken by the
Ladies Clubs of the city for the
purpose of securing funds to enlarge
the library was attended by nearly
five hundred persons and proved a
greater success even than was hoped*
for. The progrum was, a generous
one and many of the performers were
encored so that it was close to eleven
o'clock before the last number was
reached. It ts impossible to given
detailed account of the program be*
cause of its length but every number
pleased the audience and called forth
much applause. Several musicians
heretofore unknown to New Ulm
audiences took part and won unquali
fied approval as did slso Miss
Paddock who gave two readings.
Miss Norman appeared twice,.once in
solo and once.in. duet witb Mr. E.
Stoll. Miss Norman has a very
pleasing voice, sweet and well-trained
and her enunciation is clear and
distinct- The new High School
Symphony Orchestra promises under
tbe direction of Mr. Ledine to raise
the standard of* High School music.
The trio by Drs. Reineke and Rieke
and Rev. Hobn was also thoroughly
The gross receipts, of tbe evening
were $153.50 and the expenses
amou ited to $32.75 leaving a balance
of $120.75 to be expended for new
books. 'i ^V
Tbe members of the Library Board
desire to express their thanks for the
assistance given them -in getting up
the concert and in carrying it out to a
•successful close. The work done by
all who took part is deeply appre
ciated as are also tbe kindness of Mr.
Winkelmann in furnishing.the pianos
and Mr. Boock who loaned the palms
used in the decorations. The liberal
patronage of the citizens whose
interest in the project was shown by
their attendance is an endorsement of
the work of the Library Board and as
such Is very gratifying to them. .-
