DRAINAGE MEETING AT
FARGO TO GIVE RELIEF
Mayor Fntsche left Sunday aiternoon
to attend the drainage conference, to be
held at Fargo Monday and Tuesday
of this week. Although the City Coun
cil had authorized the mayor to select
a committee to accompnay him to the
conference he was unable to find any of
the business who could spare the time
to leave at this time, and he went alone.
"We hope." said Mayor Fritsche,
as he boarded the train, Sunday, "that
we will be able to devise some plan, by
the aid of the government, whereby re
lief will be afforded the farmers and
business interests in the Minnesota
valley from the disastrous floods which
beset .us nearly every spring, and I be
lieve the people of .the three North
western states, Minnesota, North and
South Dakota, have now hit upon an
adequate system for aiding both the
Minnesota and Red River valleys.
"The legislature of our own state, some
years ago, committed a crime that can
never be effaced, when it authorized the
digging of great ditches on the prairire
lands which permitted the water in large
torrents to overflow the lowlands along
these two rivers.
"By that act the farmers on the bottom
lands of the state have suffered untold
losses trom high water following nearly
every heavy rain in the past few years.
"Not only have the farmers suffered
the loss of their crops, but business has
been injured by the tying up of traffic,
no one knows it better than those of
Ulm, who were cut off from our
te trade from across the river,
at a time. Many farmers

SMALL TOWNS MAY HAVE
Dr. I. J. Murphy of the Public Health
Association, St. Paul, announces that
any community, no matter what the size,
may have a visiting nurse free.
"Last year," said Dr. Murphy, "nurses

in population. This year a vi&itmg
nurse to do school, tuberculosis or infant
welfare work will be supplied free to any
"community selling Red Cross Christmas
Seals a nurse will be furnished one week
for each 6,000 seals sold. Any com
munity of a few hundred inhabitants can
easily earn a nurse foi one week. The
larger towns can earn the services'ol a
nurse for several months."
Dr. Murphy sa^s all of the towns that
on a nurse last year are striving to one
for a larger period this year. In nearly
all of the towns visited, local officials
employed the nurses for an additional
time at public expense, when they saw

Camp Llano Grande, Texas, brings the
news to the lieutenant's New Ulm friends
that he has received a second promotion
and in other ways honored since going
to the border.
Lieutenant Klause, soon after reach
ing Texas was made chief of police of the
Second Regiment, and now the general
in command of the camp has promoted
him to be provost marshal, having com
mand of the military police of the camp,
consisting of an entire division, includ
ing nine regiments of infantry, two re
giments of artillery, a lot of cavalry,
scouts, signal corps, engineers, medical
corps, and the necessary transports.
The lieutenant continues to live with
Co. A., but has an office in the division
Lieutenant Klause, shortly before
his latest promotion, had returned from
Florida where a military shooting con
test was conducted during the month
of October. In that contest the lieu
tenant was awarded a bronze medal
for the score he made on the 1,000-yards
range, making a score of 49 out of a
possible 50. He also received a medal
for his work on the 25-yard pistol range.
The Minnesota Rifle Team took fourth
place out of fifty-six teams competing in
the national match.
In his letter Lieutanant Klause says
the weather along the Rio Grande is
now about on a par with that of the
vicinity of New Ulm in June. The
farmers are at work the same as in May
in Southern Minnesota. Beans, cab
bage, sugar cane, sweet potatoes and
other crops are up nicely.
Lieutenant Klause sends his regards to
all New Ulm friends.
HEN-THIEVES ARE TO
GET A SERIOUS JOLT
Sheriffs Olson of Nicollet county, and
Osten of Blue Earth county, have de
cided to join forces for the purpose of
routing the numerous chicken thieves
who have been robbing the poultry
houses of their respective bailiwicks for
the past two months.
The St. Peter Herald says:
"No more will farmers in this vicinity
carefully crate their choice poultry in
preparation for the market, only to find
that it has mysteriously disappeared
during the night. No more will the
mysterious automobile be stationed on
dark nights at the roadside, lights ex
tinguished, while its owners select the
cream of Nicollet county's poultry for
delivery at points unknown. And no
more will innocent farmers returning
home in the early morning hours be
exposed to the merciless fire of chicken
bandits who happen to be disturbed in
"For thti two above-mentioned officers
of the law are planning a joint drive
against the gang which it is expected will
rid the county of these marauders which
have for the past two months been in
festing the farms of poultry-raisers.
Whole flocks have been taken at once,
some farmers losing as high as 200
chickens, while many have lost from 50
to 100. It has been the custom of the
pirates to call on the evening previous
to the days of the work on which poultry
is bought in the neighboring towns. On
these evenings the chickens would be
crated by the farmers, thus making it
convenient for the visitors."
Several Brown county farmers have
had similar experiences, but the local
officials say they have had fewer com
plaints in the last few weeks than for

It was reported to the council that
repairs for the main pump at the central
pumping station, ordered several months
ago, had failed to arrive, and that a
break-down was liable to occur at any
time. Superintendent Mueller reported
that every possible effort had been made
to get the manufacturers of the pump to
send on the necessary supplies, but so far
without success. He said that part of
them had come on time, but the most
important item was missing from the
shipment as received. This discrepancy
was reported to the Manufacturers, and
denied by that concern. Later, how
ever, when affidavits, photographs of the
goods received, etc., were forwarded the
company acknowledged its error, but
has done nothing to rectify it. He ex
plained that the pump was manufactured
under a patent, that no one else made it
and the repairs must of necessity come
from that concern or not at ajl,

The committee was instructed to take
the matter up with an attorney and
insist that the missing repairs he sent
