Changes Among Business Men
At the Model Grocery, Wm. H. Bierbaum has been so busy for the past week that one could scarcely get a glimpse of him, as he flashed from one customer to another. In spite of all this Mr .Bierbaum has had tune to order immense stocks of Christmas goods to tempt the palate and empty the puraev Elsewhere this issue he tells you what he has to make your Christmas table at tractive. Mr. Bierbaum took charge of the Model Grocery when he bought fe-nrftonv F. "H. Behnke, who retired from business during the past sea son. The present owner needs no recommendation to New Ulm citizens, as he has been well and favorably known for many years, since he used to clerk in Mr. Behnke's store before starting out in business for himself. When Martin Eyrich made up his Eyrich 5 and 10c Store, mind that he had had enough for a while of the newsnaner business he began to look around for an opening where he might have a place of his own. He finally decided that New Ulm could support a five and tenfinished cent variety store and accordingly made arrangements to rent the Ja-The cobs place then occupied by Backer, the shoe man, on North Minnesota Street. As soon as Mr. Backer re moved in August, Mr. Eyrich put the building thru a course of sprouts and gaye it a thoro over-hauling. Mean tinie he kept quiet as to what his Jine of business would be, thereby prtving that he had learned in theHenderson. newspaper business not to tell all he knew. Great was the curiosity of every one as to what the new store would be like but no one knew until the opening day about the mid dle of September when he announc ed that the store would be open for business. Crowds flocked to see the new store and found that Mr. Eyrich was. prepared to supply them -with many of the small necessities of every day life at very reasonable prices. Mr. Eyrish has a pleasant little store and no doubt will build up a good business as he has a wide acquaintance in the city. If he works as hard to make the venture a success as he did when he wrote the Journal he will certainly succeed. He is a hustler from early morning till late at night. Residence of E. C. Gilmore Hip roof houses have been very popular among builders this summer .^and nearly every section of the city has one. E. C. Gilmore says that he has put up his last new house at 410 So.

Schrupp, who recently install ed a grocery department in his Boot & Shoe establishment, is not new at the grocery business, as he former ly conducted one for several years at For that reason people find him very familiar with every thing needed in a grocery store, and personally he is a very agreeable man to do business with. Mr. Schrupp has made his store gay with green and red bells. Miss Hertha Lueck came to Newwhich Ulm about .the tlst 'ofk October and established Marinello Parlors in the rear rooms at the Follmann Millin ery store. Miss Lueck is an expert in her line and as she is the only one in the city who does this work, she should have a good trade.

At theage end of the year they rented the en-The tire building to accommodate their growing businesss, and in 1908 they purchased the property.

Ne Greenhouses'1 of & Son Geo. Dill George Dill & Son, florists, came to New Ulm in the fall of 1912 with a view of locating in this territory and establishing greenhouses. They selected the vacant lots lying west of the Brown County Fair Grounds as being an ideal location, situated as it is near the cemeteries, and bought three of them. The Dills came from St. Paul where they had been in the same business for nearly twenty years. Nothing was done on the new prop erty until the spring of the present year when they began breaking ground. The late, wet season hin dered them considerably, but by mid summer they had completed two houses each 18ft xlOO ft. in size.

Man for man the American farmer produces twice as much as the farmer of Europe, BUT HE RE QUIRES FOUR OR FIVE TIMES THE AREA TO DO IT. His meth ods are POORER, but his operations are LARGER. In European farming there is more hand and less machine work than with us. There often the whole family is in the field for long hours of gruelling labor. This means a peasant farmer, and THIS WE CER TAINLY DO NOT WANT. Our need is the best farm meth ods that can be carried on by MA-higher Residence of Frank Leibold Frank Leibold has made for him self a very fine new house out of the materials left from the historic old Stark place, which stood south of the Dakota House ever since the In-North dian Massacre, until it was torn down to make room for the new Citi zens Bank building. Mr. Leibold's y~r"rT-y°»i CHINERY, cultivating smaller areas, in a better manner. It is better to' raise 80 BUSHELS yield, say, of A corn, on 30 ACRES than 30 BUSH ELS yield on 80 ACRES. Too often farming large areas means two crops on the same land, i. e., GRAIN AND WEEDS. An hour cutting weeds in August before seeding saves days fighting their offspring the next year. .'•) This bill provides for a trained 'I farm demonstrator or "county agent" to carry to the farmer in the field*. the best known methods and SHOWV HIM HOW TO APPLY THEM. In other words, HOW to increase his yield, HOW to build up his soil, HOW to decrease the cost of production, JEIOW to increase farm profits and HOW to shorten his hours of labor by an increase of brain power. The farm demonstrator will quicken in terest in farming among the young, He will show, them the splendid op portunities and tbe-large and sure re ward scientific farming opens to ,, them that it is a BIG BUSINESS, an interesting business, a DIGNIFIED BUSINESS, and, when coupled with brains, industry and patience, THE& BEST AND SAFEST BUSINESS I N THE WORLD. The farm'demonstrator or "eaunty agent" will connect the farm with thai source of scientific knowledge., He* '. will aid in building up a community spirit, will aid in co-operative move ments and educational and social de velopment, out of which will grow type of citizen—the world's: most valuable and necessary man—. THE SCIENTIFIC, EFFICIENT and PROSPEROUS FARMER. The passage of the Lever bill will in due time double the efficiency of the average American Farmer by raising the POORER FARMER up to the PRESENT AVERAGE FARM ER and raising the latter, to the standard of the PRESENT BEST FARMER. It is the opinion of near ly every authority upon the subject, both at home, and abroad, that the Lever bill or "show me" plan IS THE ONLY ONE THAT WILL EFFECT IVELY REACH THE GREAT INERT MASS THAT MOST NEEDS HELP BUT WHO DO NOT REALIZE IT. Our best farmers of today are able to take care of themselves. house is like the Spelbrink and Roth meier places, having hip roof and be ing painted green and white.
