I 1 f,/ w- II 1 ~f -fc^V* 1 *y?'*K,'- Shall W« Have A Chautauqua? Messrs Bickes & Jeffries, Chautau qua promoters bad a representative in New Ulm Monday to try to arouse interest here in a course for next sum* mer. Rev. Hohn of the German E. Church is much interested in the idea. A meeting was called for Mon day evening at the Commercial Club rooms and about twenty five of the representative citizens of tbe city were present. Dr. G. B. Weiser was made temporary chairman and Hildiog Krook, secretary. The matter was discussed and it seemed to be the con census of opinio a that it would be im possible to decide on tbe matter until after Christmas. In tbe meantime various organizations are to take up the matter with their members and test the sentiment of tbe citizens in general. The course as offered by Mr. Bickes calls for a guaranty of 1750 for a week's lectures and concerts The Company will provide a speaker on agricultural topics, a Shakespearian lecturer, the Royal Italian Concert Band, a Boy Scout Quartette and other noted musicians and speakers. The $750 will cover the cost of tents, lighting and advertising. No speakers of Bryan calibre are provided for this amount but the Company offers to secure them at cost if tbey are desired. ffr^l^TY *?H If w, _«M-i» ft*v 4' A The cost of a season ticket would be 12. The Women's Clubs were re presented by several of their members We believe that any educational project woutd be a good thing for New Uim. Surely no other city of its size is so slow to take up progressive ideas. There has been as yet but very little progress made in tbe matter of a library altbo the committee reports as still working to find information. We have before us a magazine of the Minnesota Public Library Commission which is full from cover to cover with news of libraries tbruout tbe state. Dozens of small cities are doing active work for their institutions what is the matter with New Dim? Wbilfe we are not wholly in accord with the Chautauqua idea we do be lieve that anything which will infuse the spirit of progress into tbe stolidi ty of New Ulm is a thing to be en couraged. Card of Thanks We desire to express our heartfelt gratitude to all who extended kindness and sympathy to us in our recent greal bereavement. Especially we wish to thank the docors of tbe flowers, tbe pallbearers and Rev. Father Scblin kert for bis words of consolation. Mrs. H. W. Boock and children. Mr. and Mrs. Christ Boock.

This will mean the expenditure of at least $6, 000, and it is but natural that the officers hesitate before ordering this vast improvement, because it will mean throwing the Society into debt for at least $4,000. A new grandstand is almost imperative and it is sincere ly hoped that those at the helm will see their way clear in launching the new improvement this year because the increased receipts will more than offset the interest charge that will have to be met if the grandstand is built. The Fair for 1913 promises to excel all previous fairs. At the meeting plans were discussed which, if carried out, will give Brown County the big gest fair in exhibits and attractions that it has ever had. A communi cation was read from the Interna tional Theatrical Company of Chica go, who want to book New Ulm for an aviation meet in June or possibly on the 4th of July. If this event comes off, there will be at least two aeroplane flights and auto and motor cycle races. One of the aeroplanes to make an ascension will be a Trac tor biplane of the latest military type and will give an exhibition that will eclipse the work done by the. aviator in August which proved so eminently satisfactory. The shareholders showed their ap preciation of the good work done by re-electing the old board of directors as follows: Ferd. Crone, Jac. Klossner, Jr., F. H. Behnke, W. B. Engelbert, Dr. Emil Mueller, Henry Manderfeld, A. J. Vogel, Ben Juni, W. E. Huevelmann, H. F. Schrader, Dr. J. P. Graff, Otto Kohn, Fred. Behnke, John Schaefer, and And. A. Backer. In submitting his annual report Se cretary W. E. Engelbert states among other things that this year's fair was liberally attended and a great number of exhibits made of stock, grain, vege I tables, fruit, dairy products, ladies' |and children's handiwork and other articles. The total number of entries was 958. The attendance was good and an excellent program of races and other attractions was arranged for the entertainment of those attending.

D.f who is visiting with her uncle O. P. Buell. Cashier of the State Bank of Kasota. while walking in the outskirts of the village was struck down from be hind, beaten into insensibility and then criminally assaulted. When the un fortunate woman regained conscious ness, she found that she had been dragged into a gravel pit at the side of the road and left there after the assault was committed. The only de- (l scription she can give of her assailant is that he is a dark complexioned man of medium stature, dressed in dark clothes and wearing a black mous tache. A man hunt was immediately instituted, the men of both stone quar ries ceasing work to aid in the search. Patrolling parties were sent out in all directions. They scoured the sur rounding country covering an area of at least ten miles in extent, but they were unable to find a trace of the brute they sought.
