About one hundred' bushes of common
barberry are still in existence in the city
of New Ulm, according to a statement
made by a government agent who was
in the city some time last week. He
said that about four hundred bushes
had been eliminated since last year there
having been about 500 bushes when he
made the rounds at that time. Every
property owner is required by law this
year to remove this rust-carrying plant
which is a constant danger to near-by
At places where the government
agent finds barberry bushes he leaves
a card for the property owner to notify
the office of the state entomologist that
he has removed the bushes and complied
with the law. In case this card is
not sent in a deputy will be sent to re
move the bushes and the cost charged
up to the negligent owner of the property

One of the most pathetic funerals ever
held in the city of New Ulm occurred
last Friday afternoon when Albert and
Arthur Mack, sons of Mr. and Mrs.
William Mack of Redwood County were
consigned to, a common grave in the city
cemetery. The funeral cortege with
two hearses bearing the remains of the
two brothers left the Forster undertaking
rooms shortly after four o'clock, the
remains having arrived that same after
noon from North Dakota. A large con
course of people lined the streets, mutely
expressing their sympathy to the family
who had been sorely afflicted.
The young men had died within 8
days of each other, Albert, passing away
April 7 before his parents could reach his
bedside. News of his serious illness
reached the parents at their farm home
near Belview, Saturday April 5, and that
same night they strted for North Da
kota, reaching Killdeer, the nearest rail
road station, 23 miles from where the
young people were farming, on the 7th
Not until the parents were within 3
miles of the home of their children were
they told by the Doctor that Albert had
passed away at 12 o'clock that night,
and from a neighbor they learned that
Arthur and Bertha were also ill. On
account of the distance and the inclement
weather the Doctor had been unable to
call on the patients for a couple of days.
The next day two of the neighbors
were kind enough to take Arthur and
Bertha to the hospital in sleighs, arriving
at the hospital the same evening at nine
o'clock. The parents remained on the
farm until the next day and tlien went
to Killdeer with the remains of Albert.
Arthur's condition was not particularly
alarming, but unfortunately there was
a slight blaze in the hospital Saturday
evening and from that time on Arthur's
condition grew worse, the excitement
having had a very bad effect on him.
The hospital in question was only a
small frame cottage and the partition
had been set afire from an overheated
stove. Arthur was quite confident that
he would get well and remained conscious
until the end came Tuesday, April 15.
Albert was born in the Town of Mil
ford March 16, 1884, and Arthur was
born on the farm home near Belview,
Redwood County, June 11, 1890. The
former went to North Dakota about 10
years ago and Arthur joined the others
three years ago. They have had a hard
struggle, having had to contend with
crop failures and the many disadvantages
of pioneer life. Just when conditions
commenced to grow brighter both Albert
and Arthur were stricken.
True sympathy is going out to the be
reaved from the entire community.
Relatives from out of the city who at
tended the funeral were Mrs. Eliza
Kirschstein of Winona, Mrs. John Duffy
of Witoka, Minn., Adolph Roeder of
Dover, Minn, and Adolph Eckstein of
Melville, Sask., Canada.
RED CROSS GETS NEW S
OF MISSING SOLDIER
Comrade of Young Schlumpberger
Reports That He Saw the Boy
Killed By Schrapnel.
A. A. Schlumpberger received a letter
recently from the Red Cross Headquar
ters giving him some information con
cerning his son Alvin H. who was re
ported missing in action some eight
months ago and from whom nothing
definite whatsoever has been reported
so far. Altho this letter is not official,
it is the only news that Mr. Schlump
berger has received as a result of his
efforts to trace his son's whereabouts.
The main part of the letter reads as
"Our representatives in" France, .who
have, been making every effort to secure
definite news with regard to the fate of
your son, officially reported missing in
action on July 14th, have recently sent
us a little information obtained frcm a
comrad of Private Schlumpberger.,
Private Forest T. Medkirk. This re
port is not official, as the War Depart
ment still has no record other than that
of missing in action since July 14th,
but we feel that this testimony from a
reliable informant leaves little ground for
hope that your son may still be alive.
"Private Medkirk stated to one lof
our Red Cross searchers abroad that
your son was killed instantly by shrap
nel from an aerial barrage, which pene
trated his helmet, and that he himself
assisted in burying Private Schlump
berger in a cemetery in the town» of
Levoie du Chatel."
The above item contains every
bit of information the parents have re
ceived and the Review prints it here
with in order that the family may not
be called upon to answer repeated in
quiries when they have nothing definite
to tell. The anxiety and sorrow are
increased by the necessity of constantly
telling inquiring friends that they have
heard nothing new. ,a ?...
