Ladder Starts Cashier Out
On Exciting Series Of
Wilbur Fletcher Will Sing
Illustrated Song As
Added Attraction.
Start the New Year out right by
attending Turner Theater at 3 p. m.
or 7 p. ID., or p. m. Monday and see
the program which we are arranging as
our opening offering for 1923.
We will not show any pictures on
Sunday but will reserve our entertain
ment for New Year's day. And we
feel sure that you will be so pleased
with what we have to offer that you
will make it one of your New Year's
resolutions that you will see the Turner
theater shows every week.
The program will begin with a
special overture by my orchestra de
luxe. While the spot light numbers
have not all been arranged this early
in the week, I can say definitely that
one of the attractions will be Wilbur
Fletcher singing the illustrated song
Preceding the main attraction of
"The Ladder Jinx," a travel picture,
Under the Spreading Chestnut Tree"
will be shown. Usual prices will pre
vail. Do not forget that you will find
good company and restful seats in the
Dutch room while waiting for the
second show to begin.
"Whether,you believe in jinxes who

go wrong or wh#the#?$oft ^are one of
those individuals who'can figure but a
good reason for everything which
happens you will enjoy "The Ladder
Jinx," as the main picture attraction
for New Years.' ..:

"The jinx will get you if you don't
watch out," Helen Wilbur, daughter
of the president of the Second National
bank, informed Arthur Barnes, her
lover and assistant cashier, just
previous to the party at which she was
to announce their engagement. "You
must walk back under the ladder jc
so carelessly passed under this morn-

ditions to be absolutely air and moisture proof.
ing or we will not dare announce our
engagement." ,.
"But I don't believe in this jinx
business," Arthur protested. "Even
if I did pass under the ladder the
bank elected me cashier this after
noon. But to please-you. I will go
under ladders and walk over brooms
the rest of my life."
Now Arthur starts out to remove the
jinx Helen fears and encounters ,a
series of adventures which seem un
paralleled for their hard luck. Thru
out it all, Helen maintains that con
ditions would have been worse if he
had not removed the jinx? Js she
Arthur started out to kill' the jinx
by going to the sign board where he
had made the blunder of defying a
ladder leaning against it. But the
ladder under which he had walked
was no where to be found. He was
dismayed until he found a ladder
against a nearby house. He secured
it, leaned it on the sign board, 'walked
under it and then replaced it against
the house. No sooner had he placed
it back where he found it than a man
appeared pn the roof of the house, slid
down the ladder, knocked Arthur
flat and disappeared in the darkness.
As Arthur rose to his feet he noticed
a small package lying on the ground.
He picked it up.
"Hands up."
Turning the young man recognized
Peter Stalton, ex-cashier of the Second
National bank and his bitter enemy.
Stalton had endeavored to have the
bank directors elect Richard Twing,
his nephew, to fill his place instead of
.While Stalton kept his gun pointed
at Arthur he called for police and when
an officer of the law appeared he de
clared that his house had been robbed.
I was just borrowing a ladder to
kill a jinx," Arthur protested. "I never
robbed your hbuse."
"You haye the loot in your pocket/'
TStalton shouted. I
The policeman made a hasty search
and discovered the little-*p*ckagBs*in.

thrust it when-Stalton omir&^h-m

most of the Stalton family jewels.
The policeman started to take Arthur
to the station when the latter saw a
man whom he believed to be the in
dividual who had slid down the ladder.
He broke* from the police-and started^

He then decides'w'jg^td^ Helen's'
where he is coldly rebuffed bv
the girl because of his appearance.
She gives him back his engagement
ring. Crestfallen Arthur leaves the
house and on his way home finds two
masked men carrying heavy bags out
of the main door of the bank. Arthur
gives chase but is arrested \fy the
police as the bank burglar. He is
about to be sentenced when evidence
develppes which shows that Byichard
Twing was the thief in question. Helen
in th£ meantime has come to his rescue
and is overjoyed at finding that he will
be given his liberty.
While this is but a brief outline of
the thrilling story with many other
adventures left out, .the question for
those who see the picture to decide is
"Whether Arthur or the jinx won out?
In other words: "Is there a jinx?"
Yours for wholesome amusement,
The sale of Christmas seals in New
Ulm broke all records, Miss Inga
Erickson, school nurse, has reported.
About $150 was realized for the right
against tuberculosis from the sale this
year as compared to $130 last year.
Miss Erickson enlisted as her aids the
school children of the city who con
ducted a thorough campaign in behalf
of the seals.

Nicollet County Holds Fi
,. nal 'Hearing Oh
*j Project.
Whether or not Swan Lake can be
legally lowered is a question to be
decided at the final hearing which took
place before the Nicollet county board,
today at the 'St. Peter court house.
Those opposed to the ditch contend
that a meandered lake cannot be
lowered as ^provided in the plans for
Swan Lake.
It is understood that many of the
property owners around the lake are
opposed to the lowering. The majori
ty, however, are for it. ftumor has
it that the majority of the ^present
board has been pledged to support
it. If such is the case, the ditch will
probably pass and must be carried
into court by the opposition if they
hope to stop it.
The hearing Wednesday is called at
10 o'clock at the commissioners' room
in the court house. Somsen, Dempsey
& Flor, attorneys of New Ulm, have
been retained'by the petitioners and it
is understood that a number of pro
minent attorneys have volunteered
their services to the Minnesota Game
Protective league, the organization
which is taking up the fight.
The project is known as County
Ditch No. 67. A petition ,for its .con
struction was filed on April 12th, 1917,
and Jthe survey ivas completed and
filed on March" 16th, 1932, by Engineer
F. D. Minium of New Ulm. Its esti
mated cost has been placed at $34,
022.84. The total cos' of construction
would exceed $40,000 according to the
expenditures already made for sur
veys, viewing and the like. Its bene
fits are estimated at $72,839.50.
.With such strong opposition^ even
within their awn camp, -th^ future of
the big project is indeed ^^bscure. It
has been nutted that" some" of the
strongest opposition" would' come* from
property' owners, whose claims for
damages '.make the costs prohibitive.
The right'"''of carrying the case Jntb
the district court and even into the
supreme^tourts also rests with the op
position,phould the county board pass
on It favorably.—St. Pefac Herald.

The Review Printing Company
force had a surprise Christmas Eve
party which was something out of
the ordinary. Th,e Review plant
buys its print paper in car load lots
and they had just stored away about
30,000 pounds of paper costing near
ly $2000 last week. Saturday night
after every one had left the plant
and were out doing their last minute
Christmas shopping, a telephone
message reached one of the members
of the force with, the1 information
that there was' a flood in the base
ment of the printing plant which
was beginning to show itself in the
adjoining basement of the Consum
er's grocery store. Mr. Dietz of the
Consumers had discovered the water
coming through the door between
the two basements and quickly
notified the Review people, A hurry
up call was sent out over the tele
phone and in a few minutes almost
the whole force was on the job just
in time to prevent the spoilage of
practically the entire car load of
paper. ''Everybody baled for dear
life for about an hour before the
leak could be stopped as it was
re,ally under ground and could not
be located quickly. The water had
evidently been running for some
hours when discovered by Mr. Dietz.
The only damage done was to one
roll of print whieh was slightly wet
at the edge and which will have to
be cut into smaller sizes."

Work has been launched at K^sota
for the straightening of the course of
the Minnesota river south of the high-,
way bridge, according to the St. Peter
Herald. The river has formed a long
bend'at this point and has been cutting
away large bites into the property on
the east bank. During the past three
spring freshets, a new channel has been
started and the crew will deepen this
new channel during the winter months,.
A. H. Clark of South Dakota, is in
charge of the crew of eight men. Six
teen head of horses are being used to
cut out the channel. The work was
started this week. The strip is only
a few blocks in length and when com
pleted will make a large island.
The change in the river's course
will stop the tremendous cutting of
the current both on the Nicollet and
Le Sueur county sides. It will create
a large horseshoe lake south of the
bridge., ,'
