A Good Idea
A skating rink has been planned
for the ball grounds north of Ger
man Park. A crew of men -worked
there for several days and built up
an embankment for holding in the
•waters when the weather grows cold
«nough for doing the flooding success
fully. Last year's efforts in this line
-were unsuccessful owing to the fact
that the water all ran off down the
slope to the tracks. It is to be hoped
that the work can be carried out this
•winter for no other winter sport pro
vides such healthful exercise for
young bodies which need strenuous
•exercise to counteract the evil of en
forced quiet in the school room for
long hours each day. There's nothing
like skating for bringing into play
•^very muscle of the body and at the
same time providing an abundance
-of fresh air for the lungs so that
she blood is purified and sent cour
ting thru every part of brain and
toody One who has enjoyed an hour
on the ice rink has all the exhilara
tion which follows the taking of a
cold bath and the best part about it
is that the body has been cleaned in
side as well as out. We believe that
eventually every schoolhouse in the
land will have its skating rink be
cause the pupil who can spend ten
to fifteen minutes twice a day in
exercises on the ice will be able to
«Jo so much better work mentally

A new book just from the pub
lishers, has come to our table this
week, written by a man who was con
demned to pass twenty-two of the best
years of his life in a state peniten
tiary, but was pardoned seven years
before the time was up. It is the
book of a scholar, the diction is per
fect, and there is not a dull line from
the first page to the last. It is a
study in sociology, but there are no
dry statistics. It is a'simple, human
record of a great experience which
did not embitter the man but sent
him out to work with undying zeal for
the betterment of conditions in our
penal institutions more than that, to
strive for the elimination of such in
stitutions, for his story proves con
clusively that they work such terrible
harm to the inmates that no amount
of good they could ever accomplish
would offset the evil. His story is
not written in a hysterical passion of
anger and resentment. He treats his
subject not at all as though he hadThousand
been the man who spent fifteen
dreadful years in that abode of mis
ery and despair but with the calm,
unbiased mind of the investigator
who will accept nothing but the facts
and the facts he finds are such as
will horrify the most experienced mar
or woman There are terrors of physi
cal and moral degradation that we
who live in the sunlight do not know
exist, degeneracy that is absolutely
incomprehensible to a healthy minded
person. Acts and thoughts too terrible
for words are the products of the peni
tentiary system which corrupts not
only the condemned criminal but thecellent
officers and others connected with
these soul destroying institutions
as well. The book fascinates and
no one could read it and continue to
believe that the penitentiary system
is the right solution of the problem
of caring for the criminal.
Last June when school closed we
published an editorial on the sub
jebt "Why Did The Child Fail?"
Complaints of parents and teach
ers that we have been hearing
the past week have called it to mind
and we believe some of it repeated
here may answer the question as to
why some of the month's marks that
the children had to show last we^ek
were so unsatisfactory all around. We
quote fiom a report of the work of
a committee which investigated con
ditions affecting delinquent pupils in
the public schools of Minneapolis last
The Committee found in many fam
ilies of delinquents a serious Jack of
real home life In many cases the
family had the habit of breakfasting
installments, while even at dinner
the circle was more or less broken.
In many cases one or both of the
rents were away from home frequent
ly of an evening It found that the
joung folks themselves spent rather
more evenings in the pursuit of amuse
ments and pleasure outside of the
home than in it. Moving pictures' and
theaters and social gatherings filled
the children's evenings, so that they
had little leisure or inclination for
reading or study It found that the
pood old custom ol reading aloud in
(ho familv ciicle and discussing af
faiis at the table 01 around the eve

A telegram was received Sunday by
Math. Siebenbrunner announcing the
accidental death of his brother George
drowning. Mr. Siebenbrunner left
immediately for St. Paul where the
remains arrived Sunday evening.
The accident causing death must have
happened either Friday or Saturday.
From a press bulletin we glean the
following: "George Siebenbrunner,
52, while hunting broke through the
ice on tbe Rat ot River, 50 feet
from shore, and was drowned The
place where tbe tragedy occurred was
about $ miles from International
Falls. Mr. Siebenbrunner formerly
lived at New Ulm, Minn." Mr
Siebenbrunner's oldest son was with
him when tbe accident occurred and
he it was who brought his father's
remains to St Pa-ul where tbe funeral
will be beld this (Wednesday) morn
ing at 8:30 from the Catholic Church.
The deceased was born in New Ulm
about 52 years ago and spent most of
his years until he arrived at the age
of majority on the homestead farm in
the Town of Sigel. He was married
to Miss Mamie De Bar about 30 years
ago and soon after left the farm and
moved to New Ulm. He owned a feed
store at one time and followed different
occupations while he lived here. Ten
years ago he went to St. Paul with his
family and about four years ago went
with several others to take up a claim
in the northern part of tbe state and
has since then made his living by
bunting and trapping. He is survived
by his widow, two sons and one
daughter, his brothers Math and John
of New Ulm and his sisters, Mrs.
Gulden of Otisco, Minn, and Mrs.John
