Anyone who attended the Marble entertainment could not help noticing the many strange faces that came into the hall, mostly all brought here by our manufacturing enterprises.
Gen. Shields Post we are informed have rented rooms in conjunction with the contemplated relief corps, at the lodge of the Workmen on Holmes street. They meet again next Monday.

The following persons are intending to build in Shakopee this spring: Dr. Smith an addition to his residence, James Reynolds a residence, and John Dean an addition to his residence.
The Minnesota Stove Company had a large number of visitors Monday afternoon to see the modus operandi of making Coral stoves.
That’s a pretty good trade when a man can earn upwards of $140 a month. That is what one of the stove company employers did last month.
March 17, 1892
The 1st ward is booming, as they have put up two houses the past fine winter—couldn’t wait till spring, too long coming.
Saw Russ. Jones in Minneapolis last week. Thinks he sees light for the desk business in April. Hope it won’t be April 1st.
Our building local last week should have said John Dean will build an addition to his blacksmith shop this spring instead of residence.
Otto Derberger, the popular liveryman and ‘bus man, has finally got moved into his Sommerville street building where he has 14 stalls, plenty of carriage room, a good well, barn and granary, and nice office accommodations.

March 31, 1892
Paul Bierlein has rented the Moore house and will move his family here in a short time.
T. A. Thayer will leave his position at the depot to accept a promotion as freight solicitor for the Express Co., in Minneapolis. The loss to Shakopee of Mr. and Mrs. Thayer, where they have so many friends, can hardly be told. Thomas has been here many years as the faithful agent of the Mil. & St. Paul, and lately of the American Express Company also.
The Bierlein Bros. have completed six of their big machines, and are rushed with work.
Judge John Daly and family who have lived here so long, moves to St. Paul, having sold out their residence property on Lewis street. His sons, long residents of St. Paul, will reside with their father and mother in future. John Daly’s name was the first to go on the subscription book, paid in advance, of the Shakopee Courier, and he has been a constant subscriber and prompt payer ever since. We never had to wait on him for a subscription due. When Mr. Daly leaves here, Shakopee loses a good citizen.

On Wednesday morning Mr. Aug. Stralow and family removed to Hamburg, this state, where they will make their future home.
Wm. Heidenreich has let a contract for a brick dwelling to Wm. Hamyer. It will be built west of Mr. Mergens’ residence on Second street.
Otto Dierberger has purchased from James Sullivan the lot east of the Conter House and the brick barn on the north end of the lot. The barn is the one used by John Gordon for some two years as a horse-training stable. Mr. Dierberger will use the stable for a first-class livery.
The library of the Union School is soon to have an addition of about sixty volumes purchased by the Board of Education. The library is a very potent factor for good among the pupils of the school. It comprises about 300 books at the present time and doubtless this number could be swelled by individual contributions if the parents but knew of all its usefulness. Books at home once read are sometimes thrown aside to do no more good in the world. Contributions of such would be most gratefully received by those directly interested in the schools.
A choir has been organized in the Lutheran church during the past week.
Andrew Lyon, formerly a pattern maker in the employ of the Minnesota Stove Co., left on Monday last for Chicago.
Mr. John Westpheldt, an artist who has been residing in the city during the winter removed with his family to St. Paul on Tuesday last.
There has been some talk of organizing a Loan and Trust Company here. The idea has not yet been entirely abandoned, but the $50,000 required to be deposited with the state auditor will likely prove an insurmountable obstacle to the contemplated organization. The movement may result in the organizing of a Mortgage Company.
B. H. Pond left on Tuesday morning for Minot, N. D., where he will have charge of the large farm of M. S. Titus. Mrs. Pond and children will go up next week.

Chas. Erickson, of Minneapolis, has been engaged as second miller in the mill.
Michael Huss is building a frame addition to the Daly house which he recently purchased.
John Haack is building a story and a half frame addition to his house in East Shakopee, which will add materially to its size and comfort.
During the warm days last week the excavation was made and a foundation laid for the frame house of Mrs. Giegerich, on the vacant lot east of Mr. Buchanan’s residence. The work will proceed as the weather moderates.
Dr. H. O. Smith has had plans drawn for practically a new residence. The front part of the present dwelling is to be torn down and a handsome two story and a half house will be erected in its place. The new building will afford, beside the commodious living rooms, two large, roomy offices which the doctor has needed for some time. Mr. Aug. Bornarth is drawing the plans and it promises to make a comely addition to that part of the city.
A brass band of about sixteen pieces has been organized by the young men of the town. It is to be under the instruction and leadership of Mr. Jacob Bierline, formerly a cornetist in the Chaska band. They expect to practice two evenings in the week, and hope to be a full fledged band by July Fourth next. There is a spirit of enterprise in this that should be encouraged, and there is no doubt but that a good band, in good practice, could be appreciated here as well as in our neighboring villages. The young musicians who start in now will gain knowledge and experience that will grow from year to year and, in time, some of them may become good artists in their line. It is a move in the right direction and deserves success.
Mr. Henry Peters, an employee in the cooper shop, recently moved his family into Mr. Busse’s brick house on First street.
H. D. Gardner, of Minneapolis, who has been filling the position of head engineer at the mill for the past month gave up that position on Monday last and returned to his home in that city. Michael Sullivan is acting in that capacity for the present.
Work on the new iron draw bridge between this point and Chaska is progressing little by little. The piling is all done across Gifford’s lake, and from this time on the work is to be pushed more rapidly. The new road will materially shorten the distance between the two towns, and in this regard will be quite advantageous to our city.
Mr. John Kaschnitzke, who recently moved into the Spearman house, has one of the good old-fashioned families; there being twelve children under his paternal care. If “in union there is strength”, Mr. Kaschnitzki’s family ought to be able to best a whole troop of ghosts in a hand to hand conflict.
March 24, 1892
Mr. S. L. Winter has opened a cigar factory in one of the rooms of the Conter House.
For Rent.—House, 6 rooms, 2 lots, large garden, water, in East Shakopee. Possession May 1st. D. L. How.
Last week Louis Prescott received $800.00 from the Government for services rendered as a scout during the massacre of ‘62. The heirs of John Otherday received a like amount. Prescott paid off a four hundred dollar mortgage on his place, paid bills around town, bought silk dresses for his wife and daughter and at the end of a week had four dollars left. He was in great luck to come out so near even.
Mr. Michael Berens is to erect a fine brick block on the present site of his store, one half to be completed this year and the other in ‘93. This is another element in Shakopee’s indisputable healthful boom. The building will be patterned after the one occupied by the firms of Lins Bros. and Huntsman & Edert and will consequently add much to the business portion of our city.
The Wampach factory has imported a new carriage painter.
As spring is likely to re-open now we would suggest to the street committee the availability of buying a carload of Jacob Ries’s broken bottles to “improve” cross-walks with.

Church Destroyed By Fire. Fire destroyed the Catholic church at Marystown, early Wednesday morning. Thirteen hour devotion was held in the church on Tuesday, closing about 9:00 o’clock in the evening. About 12:45, one of the visiting priests discovered the church in flames, and rushed from the parsonage, which is but a few feet from the church and gave the alarm. There being no fire apparatus in Marystown, it was seen at once that the structure was doomed. The church was totally destroyed, including a pipe organ, vestments etc. It is the belief that the fire started in the sacristy. The loss is partially covered by insurance, to the amount of $13,000.
