Associated With British 

Literature for Several 


London, Jan. 8.— "The Thrre Pig- 
eons," one of England's oldest and 
most famous inns and last existing 
tavern of Elizabethan times, was 
closed yesterday by the Middlesex li- 
censing justices in accordance with a 
movement inaugurated some time ago 
by the temperance leaders to restrict 
the number of licensed inns. 

"The Three Pigeons" was used as a 
background for the low comedy scenes 
in the "Merry Wives of Windsor," Ben 
Jonson's "The Alchemist" and Gold- 
smith's "She Stoops to Conquer," and 
is alluded to In Dickens' "Our Mutual 
Frl. nd. " The inn perhaps has had 
more literary associations than any 
other English tavern. 


Berlin Papers Print Reports 
on Conscription But Ven- 
ture No Predictions. 

Berlin, Jan 8, via London. — The Ger- 
man newspapers display mu< h inter- 
est in reports (-f the conscription 
crisis in England, but venture no pr«- 
! diction regaiding its outcome. 

The Morgen Post speaks of (he Brit- 
ish government's "pyrrhlc victory" 
and says the A.'^quith cabinet emerged 
from the struggle greatly weakened. 

The Socialist organ, Vorwaerts, is 
disposed to think that conscription in 
the form propof-ed will be carried 
through. It 8a\.« that a hard struggle 
is ahead, but if the war la.^t sober 
calculation will have to reckon with 
the ftct that the present active re- 
sistance will be overcome. 

The Post, in a remarkably objective 
dispassionate leader, warns the Ger- 
man leaders agilhst building great 
hopes upon England's internal conflict. 
It points out that crises have a habit 
of adjusting iheniselves and adds: 
Mahes L.lttlc Dlfferenre. 

"What difference does it make, any- 
how. If England really should have a 
crisis. Today'h cabinet would go and 
tomorrow's cabinet would come and 
would begin where this one loft off. 
England must wage war with all hef 
powers to ward off misfortune and any 
new mlnlfcter who might come would 
come with this feeling. Just :is victory 
is certain for the ministry in parlia- 
ment, just so will the ministry main- 
tain Itself before the people if new 
elections come. Despite all outcries of 
anti-conscriptioii gatherings, there Is 
no e.idence to j-how that the Lngllsh 
people todav would resist con.scription 
las strongly as they certainly would 
have done a >car ago. English voter*, 
along with their leaders, have learned 
their lesson. One must at least wait 
to see whether they will desert their, 
leaders in such an hour."

With thre.' conipaiiles of th'- Ohio Na- 
tional <;uard under command of Brivf.- 
G«'n. John C. Sp»-aks patrolling the 
smold'-rlng ruins of the village of East 
Youngstown or encamped in the hills 
nearby, it Is believed that for the pres- 
ent at least, an end has l>een put to 
the scenes of noting and looting that 
marked last night. One life at least 
WHS lost and fu'ly ten blocks of the 
town was burned, with a loss of at 
least $1 OOO.OOO. it is estimated. Physi- 
cians .ailed to attend the injured -said 
that l'»0 were wounded, although but 
fifteen were tiiken to hospitals. Prac- 
tically the entire busines.>» section of 
i the town was burned, including eight- 
een of the twenty saloons. 
Trouble Start*. 
The trouble started when the work- 
men left the mills of th<- Young.stown 
Sheet & Tube r-ompany yesterday aft- 
ernoon. As they were cro.'ioing the 
bridge that separates the town from 
the site of the mills they were met by 
a crowd of about 200 men and women 
who jeered at them. A single shot was 
fired drawing a volley from the guards 
Htati»)ned at the bridge, who fired over 
the strikers' heads. The mob replied 
and the guard replied with another 
volley, wounding a number, among 
them two women. 

FIreM Started. 
The mob then fired the employment 
office of the company and later a small 
warehouse. A saloon was next looted 
and tiien fired, after which a clothing 
store was cleaned out. The mob had 
bv this time become maddened and as 
they looted saloons and stores they set 
fire to them until the business section 
was a mass of flames. The liciuor 
secured in the saloons was pas-sed 
around and the mob soon was in a 
frenzy. The police force of the town 
was unable to control the crowd and 
the sheriff admitted his inability to 
cope with the situation. A call was 
then sent for state troops. 

HvndredM of I>r««k«. 
Meantime the rioting had been in 
progress for several hours and it was 
.seen that the business section could not 
"be saved. Every minute the crowd 
seemed to grow until there were hun- 
dreds of drink-crazed men and women 
roaming the streets. The fire depart- 
ment had been called out at the first 
alarm of fire, but the hose was cjuickly 
cut to pieces, and helpless, they called 
on the Youngstown fire department. 
Chief Joseph Wallace had men and 
equipment ready to send from the city, 
but found it was useless to risk lives 
and property as long as the mob held 
the town. 

Scenes of the wildest disorder were 
everywhere enacted and the fires 
mounted higher and higher until to- 
ward 10 o'clock Wilson avenue for the 
entire length of the village was In 
flames. Absolutely no attempt was be- 
ing made to extinguish the flames or 
save the thousands of dollars In prop- 
erty being carried away or destroyed. 
PoMtofflce Attacked. 
Early in the evening the mob had 
attacked the postoffice. It was a small 
building and the dozen or more men 
who entered it made short work of it. 
Additional excitement, if sitcli were 
posolb'e, was created by the report 
that the mob had dragged the safe Into 
the street and blown it to pieces. Later 
It was stated that the men h*d been 
content with robbing the strong box 
before applying the torch to the build- 
ing. .,.,,. 

One of the handsomest buildings In 
the village was the banking house of 
G V Haniory. The mob paid no atten- 
U'on to it until after 10 o'clock. Then 
it was recalled that a saloon had stood 
In that section, and there was a rush 
to the place. The saloon was qui-kly 
looted and fired and the flames, spread- 
ing to the bank soon doomed the struc- 
ture. ^ 

Dry Goods Store ?5ext. 
A dry goods store near Seventh 
street and Wilson avenue shared a 
building with a saloon. The particular 
party of rioters who selected it for 
their prey made the mistake of at- 
taeking the dry goods store first. As 
they approached the door a man ap- 
peared at a w^indow in the living quar- 
ters above the store and fired one shot 
from his revolver. A rioter, who had 
not been identified this morning, fell 
dead in the street and the rest fled 
They withdrew to the other side of 
Wilson avenue, and after a conference 
tossed a brick through one of the plate 
gla^s windows. No shot came from 
above and, encouraged, they stormed 
the place. 

BarrelH of WhiHky In Stree*. 
At a dozen or more places in W ilson 
avenue barrels of whisky, with the 
heads gone, stood In the roadway, and 
surrounding them were many men and 
women, gulping down the raw liquor 
or passing it to friends in the crowd 
who could not get close enough to 
help themselves. A number of cloth- 
ing stores fell a prey to the rioters, 
and almost immediately men began ex- 
changing their old clothes for the loot 
they had seized. This change of ap- 
parel was made In the street, lighted 
almost to noonday brightness by the 
flames from half a hundred burning 

buildings. ^ . ^^ ^ » 

Once the rioters were frightened. A 
passenger train, steaming along the 
railroad tracks at the foot of the hill, 
slowed down as it approached the 
burning buildings, a shout "the militia 
Is coming" rang out. and for a minute 
or two there was a pause. But when 
it was seen the train did not stop the 
orgy went on. 

Better CItiaeiw Flee. 
By this time so much property had 
been destroyed and the mob had be- 
come so Inflamed that the better citi- 
zens of the town had fled. Many fam- 
ilies came to Youngstown and others 
took the street cars to communities 
farther away, as the conviction was 
growing that if the disorder spread to 
Young.==town nothing could save the 
city. Finally a dozen or more citizens, 
led by Oscar Diser, city solicitor of 
East Youngstown and former member 
of the Ohio legislature, gathered at the 
police station and pleaded with police 
and other city officials to attack the 
rioters. It was almost midnight be- 
fore a force of some forty armed men 
had been gathered in Wilson avenue. 
Then with Diser to lead them they 
moved down the street. 

Fire Over Head«. 

Only a block away the rioters were 

looting the last building in the block 

and the citizens fired over their heads. 

They broke and ran but. finding no 

had been killed, they turned and 

after shot toward the posse.

Abe Martin, the Joker on 
Facts. ' 

Very truly your old Hoosier., friend, 

At the next meeting of the public 
affairs committee of the Duluth Com- 
mercial club a resolution will be pre- 
sented Indorsing the demand being 
made by people In the Flathead dis- 
trict in Montana that congress appro- 
priate Jl. 000,000 for furthering the ir- 
rigation plan Ir* that section of the 
state, and asking the Minnesota sena- 
tors and congressional representatives 
to support such a bill. 

Whether the resolution will be 
adopted by the committee is, of course, 
another matter, but wholesalers of Du- 
luth are in favor of it in view of the 
fact that the territory involved is a 
trade center for this point, and Du- 
luth houses obtain considerable busi- 
ness there. With the irrigation proj- 
ect furthered or completed, settlers 
win naturally go In, It is pointed out, 
and the trade will projyorUpnately in- 

James Harbert. chairman of the ir- 
rigation committee of the chamber of 
commerce of Poison, Morit., was in the 
city yesterday, and met a number of 
the wholesalers and other business 
men, who indorsed the project for 
which he is working. Mr. Harbert is 
an old schoolmate of Norton Mattocks, 
and was shown about the city by the 
latter. In talking about the project, 

he said:

enough to furnish water for irrigation 
to the settlers who have come in at 
the invitation of the government, 
which opened the reservation there. 
There are 2.980 irrigable farms which 
will be available when the work is 
completed, and dry farming is an inri- 
possibiliiy. Our country is -emi-arid 
in character, the average rainfall in 
the irrigable territory being about 
twelve inches per year, not nearly 
enough to grow crops without irriga- 
tion. In the foothiUs where the rair*- 
fall Is about 50 per cent greater than 
on the prairie land, beautiful crops are 
raised, and it is aided by the sub-lrn- 
gatlon which is constantly seeping 
from the tnountain sides. 

"According to government jeports 
this project was, on June 30 about 25 
per cent completed, after expending 
approximately 11.500,000. About 2 800 
men and women, cotnprising Indiana 
and white people, have taken these^ Ir- 
rigable units with the express under- 
standing that their lands were to be 
irrigated by the government.

"The fact remains that the Indian 
and the white man alike went upon 
these lands In good faith, expecting 
the government to carry out Its ex- 
press and Implied pledges made to 
them at the time they made entry. 
It Is true that no especial time Is 
named for the completion of this re- 
clamation scheme, but It Is only rea-

tention of the government to provide 
water for domestic and Irrigation pur-

has been very exacting in Its dcm.'mds

Verdi's Beautiful Opera At- 
tracts Audience That 
Fills Lyceum. 

"Aida" was the opera chosen for the 
second night of the engagement of the 
San Carlo Opera company at the Ly- 

The audience last evening complete- 
ly filled the Lyceum, being nearly 
double the proportions of the audience 
I of the opening night, and apparently 
the company will receive the recogni- 
tion it mTits In Duluth. 

'^ da" was sung by an entirely new 
cast of principals from those heard on 

'^^h?opl"rl ^4f composed by Verdi as 
an assignment from the khedive of 
Egypt InThe period when a khedive! 
of Egypt was actually a ruler and not 
an Automaton dancing to the piping of 
British military bands. 

It heralded to the world the con- 
niiest of Ismail over the sandy barrier 
which had separated the Mediterranean 
and the Red se*. and oresented a prob- 
lem upon which sovereigns had worked 
unsuccessfully for 4.000 years. 

The story of "Aida" is not, of course, 
the romance of the Suez canal. It is a 
simple tale of the love of an Egyptian 
captain of the guard for an enslaved 
Ethiopian princess, but It seems plain 
that when Ysmall assigned Verdi to the 
task of writing an opera which should 
be suitable as a major feature of a 
Jllebration of the opening of the canal 
the composer became Imhued with the 
apfrit ^ the occasion and rose to levels 
of dignity and grandeur unreached b>

ity, and was greatly applauded. Her 
acting, too, revealed histrionic powers

SaMp<>n4l Deferred Ser>lee. 

Eastf-rn officials of the North Ameri- 
can Commercial Telegraph & Cable 
company, following the lead of other 
operators of Trans-Atlantic cables, 
have announced the suspension of de- 
ferred service, because of the rush of 
business since "Dec. 1. when all cheap- 
er forms of service were discontinued. 

Cloquet, Minn.. Jan. 8.— (Special tc 
The Herald.) — Notable among the 
achievements in this section during 
1015, was the progre.-^s made by the 
Fond du L«c band of Chippewa In- 
dians, many of whom have moved onto 
th'ir alli-tments on what was formerly 
the Fond du Lac reservation. adjoininK 
the city on the west, builr homes, 
cleared land and are now making a 
success t'f farn.inij, in whi-;h business 
they not only compete successfully 
with the white settler but give prom- 
l^e of much greater achievements along 
this line. 

The Indians now have a total of 
im acres cleared and under cultivation 
i-nU much more work of this kind will 
bt done during the coming .season. 

The Fond du Lrfic reservation com- 
prised originally 100.000 acres and lien 
partly in Carlton and partly In St. 
L^'Uis count ie.«. It was «et upart for 
th< Fond du Lac band of Chippewa In- 
dians by the treaty of 1864. and al- 
lotted to them under the general al- 
lotting act of 1&87. according to the 
provisions of the Nelson act of 1889. 
Uf the 100.000 acres originiilly set 
upart, approximately 40,000 acre.** have 
been allotted to Indians and 60,000 
acres nave been opened to settlement 
and homesteaded by the whit'^s. 
BIk laiprovementM Made. 

Before the homesteader came, and 
before the Indians began moving on to 
their allotments, the reservation was 
a veritable Jungle. Now there are forty 
miles of good roads, besides numerous 
trails and tote roads that can be used 
in the winter, but very few of thes*- ! 
cut out roads can be used during the 
soring, summer and fall, (jood roads

The Fond du Lac band of Indians 
numbers l.O^IO members. About 500 
of these reside permanently on tht 
ervation. The remainder live In

There are two church missions on 
the reservation. The Catholic mission 
i.«i located near Cloquet and the Meth- 
odist mission Is near Sawyer. Most 
of the Indians are members of oi»? or 
the other of these churches. There are 
only about 100 Indians that are con- 
sidered pagan, that Is. they do not be- 
long to any church and do not profess 
any religion. The old Indian custom 
marriage and divorce is a thliA? ot 
the past among the Fond du Lacs. 
♦They are governed in these matters by 
' Stat . law. Most of these Indians can 
i read and write the English language 
•Thev have good school facilities. There 
fare two schools <»n the reservation. 
|)ui most of the children either attend 
non-reservatior* government boarding 
schools or mission schools. 

The health and sanitary conditions on 
the reservation are very good. The 
»Fond du Lac reservation is compara- 
tively free from trachoma, and tuhe- 
culosls is not as prevalent as formerly 
The sanitary conditions are carefully 
looked after by a sanitary board com- 
posed of th. agency physician, the In- 
dian farmer and police. 

BuildInK New Howpital. 
A new ht).«*r'ital is now nearing com- 
pletion at a cost of $25,000. This will 
help a great deal in improving the 
health condition on the reservation and 
In taking care of feeble or sick Indians. 
This hospital is just about finished and 
will be furnished and opened for pa- 
tients earlv next month in all prob- 
ability. It will accommodate thirty 
patients is complete with every com- 
fort and convenience, modern to the 
last detail and will prove a most help- 
ful institution. It will have a resident 
phvsician in the person of Dr. Virgil 
D. ' Cuittard, now stationed at White 
Earth, who will be assite<l by a corps 
of competent nurses, housekeeper, 
etc. A new council hall was also built 
and dedicated at Sawyer last year. 

This gratifyinej progress among the 
Indians is due very largely to George 
"W. Cross, the local superintendent. 
That he has been able to accomplsih 
these things in the short space of four 
years shows conclusively that he is the 
right man in the right i)lace and de- 
serves much credit for what he has 
accomplished on this reservation.

Costs the Buenos Aire^ Paper $500 
a Tooft for a Big Story. 

San Antonio Light: If you were 
asked what is the most modern news- 
paper in the w^orld, with the finest 
plant and most sensational methods of 
reaching the public, what would you 
reply? Some New York newspaper, 
probably. At any rate, your guess 
would be a journal published in the 
United ■States: that goes without say- 
ing. It usually surprises residents of 
North America to learn how large and 
Important a city Is Buenos Aires, and 
it is equally surprising to learn that 
the finest newspaper equipment on 
either American continent Is that of 
La Prensa, a daily paper published in 
that city. 

La Prensas latest achievement in 
sensationalism is one to make the 
managers of New York "yellow" ncM's- 
papers green with envy. Why couldn't 
they have thought of it first? On the 
office building of La Prensa — which, 
by the way, is not only equipped with 
the latest word in mechanical plant, 
editorial rooms and business offices, 
but has facilities for allowing its re- 
porters to live under its roof and even 
a small but practical hospital for their 
minor ailments — has been installed a 
loud and penetrating siren. Whenever 
there is very important news La Pren- 
sa puts out an enormous bulletin and 
then blows the siren. 

Now the city officials of Buenos 
Aires have decided that the blowing of 
this penetrating whistle constitutes a 
public nuisance, and every time it is 
sounded La Prensa's owners go to 
court and pay a fine of |600. Naturally 
they do not use the siren except when 
the news that is to be announced is 
really Important, but when they do 
have irtiportant Information to. com- 
municate to the public they do riot let 
^500 interfere with their siren loot- 
ings.' The people of Buenos Aires know 
whenever they hear the siren that La 
Prensa Is spending $500 of its good 
monev to let them know something has 
happened, and crowds swarm from 
every nook and corner of the city to- 
ward the newspaper office to see what 
has been posted on its bulletin board. 


Tit-Bits: A cockney angler, think- 
ing his Highland boatman was not 
treating him with the respect due to 
his station, expostulated thus: 

"Look here, my good man, you don't 
seem to grasp who I am. Do you know 
that my family has been entitled to 
bear arms for the last 200 years?" 

"Hoot! That's nothing," was the re- 
plv "Mv ancestors have been entitled 
to" bar* "legs lor the Uat 2,00« yeara^"

with folders. Act-ouols <if my onn trips tiirough the 
sicnlc folder paradke will. I hen*, fi'e tt'<* to '"J" 

As 1 entered the folder, I was struck 
by two unusual groups arranged on 
opposite sides of a Chinese ochre rock 
in the immediate foreground. Let me 
remark in the first place that I have 
never seen nature in a more lavishly 
lithographic mood. Piusstan blue hills 
in the background were surmounted 
by a delicate mauve sky. Enamel 
white geysers spouted, one on each 
cover, and in the foreground poly- 
chromatic wlldflowers were sprinkled 
through delicately tinted grass. A va- 
cation spent within such covers as 
these, 1 felt, would be an esthetic de- 

On the right hand cover was a trap- 
per in cooskiii cap and fringed buck- 
skin Prince Albert, leaning on a rifle 
and flanked by two Indians who. in 
spite of wearing hardly any clothes, 
did not seem to be very heavily 
tanned. They carried bows and ar- 
rows.. On the opposite cover, gazing 
intently toward the Pru.ssian blue tiills 
in the distance, were a young man and 
woman, evidently easterners, in spot- 
less khaki. • 

I wc-)** up to the old trapper. "What 
i.s your function here?" I asked as po- 
litelv as I knew how. "Are you hired 
by the hotel people to be picturesque, 
or do you really trap?" 

"I see. sir," he said, "that you have 
never traveled through the folder 
couriitry before. Indians and 
mvself mean nothing except as we are 
taken in conjunction with the up-to- 
date young people on the opposite cov- 
er. Then we are symbolic of the 
primeval days of this eccentric region. 
We represent the early times when the 
geysers spouted with never a kodak 
to record theii spoutings, of the time 
when the cliffs you see yonder did not 
have any Initials of New Jersey high 
school Btudenls carved on them." 

I passed into the park past a plain 
but attractive title page and found 
myself in front of a hotel two columns 
wide and beautifully engraved. Once 
inside the park I found that the bright 
colors noticeable fi«om the out.slde g&ve 
way to plain black and white effects, 
mostly in halftones. 

Although the scenery around the 
hotel was rich In de.scriptive matter 
of a great variety of softly shaded 
tints, 1 did not strike the ragged type 
of natural beauty which is the chief 
charm of the folder until the stage 
coach rumbled along, a 
margin about half an 
the mountain country on page nine- 
teen, where Mammoth Hot Springs are 

Fearing that If 1 continued as di- 
rected I might stray from the beaten 
path and become lost in the thick un- 
dergrowth of boldfaced nonpareil type 
which stretched about on all sides, I 
returned to the hotel, where I met 
one of the most Interesting characters 
of the place, an old compositor who 
had set the type for every Yellowstone 
folder since the tin>e when the Mam- 
moth Hot Springs were just beginning 
to come to a boil. 

"The old folder hasn t changed as 
much as you'd think,' he told me, as 
we sat beside an attractive cut of a 
mud volcano. "The lithographing is 
better than it used to be. but that, 
after all, is only for the convenience 
of the tourists and doesn't add to 
natural beauty of the place." 

I found several old residents of the 
park who even went so far as to say 
that' the reduction of the size of the 
Yellowstone Falls cut visible from the 
summit of page forty had done much 
to destroy the elegant perspective of 
the falls that used to be so much ad- 
mired bv Western visitors. 

On the whole, however, the trip was 
delightful. "When we finally drove yp

The Clough Gates rink had. accord-

The city council will not buy block 
7, 'Men Avon, Third division, from Si- 
mon Clark on his offer of $6,000. be- 
' cause he has stipulated that the 
grounds must not be used on Sunday. 

Mayor Prince made this announce- 
ment today, following receipt of an 
opinion from City Attorney Samuelson, 
who states that a breach of the condi- 
tion contained in Mr. Clark's offer will 
allow him to re-enter in possession of 
the property and that it is unwise for 
the city to accept such a conveyance. 
A forfeiture, he states, might result 
without any fault of the city. 

Several weeks tikgo residents In Hunt- 
er's Park -started A movement for a 
public social center*' and. playground on 
the block adjoining the Washburn 
school. They agreed to Improve the 
grounds, erect a suitarWe building and 
pay all necessary exftenses for the up- 
keep, if the city would buy the squai;e 
owned by Mr. Clark, who ofB^red the 
property to the city for $5,000. In his' 
offer, however, Mr. Clark states that 
the property must not be used on Sun- 

Unlimited or Not at All. 
The offer was referred to the mayor, 
who is head of the parks and welfare 
department, and he asked the city at- 
torney's office for an opinion, which 
was submitted yesterday. UnlesiS Mr. 
(*lark changes his offer, so that the 
property can be open to the public at 
all times, without the Imposing of any 
special conditions, the city 
take the proposition unc^ 

In his opinion. City Attorney Sam- 
uel.'^on cites several similar cases in 
Minnesota, where the courts ruled that 
conditions specially imposed in con- 
tracts were valid. 

In conclusion, Mr. Samuelson states: 
"As this property, when acquired by 
the city for playground purposes, will 
be largely under the control of the 
community in which it is locateji* the 
members of that particular comHiunity 
could control the same to the extent of 
preventing sports and games being 
carried on upon that property

For the first time In the city history, 
the city auditor yesterday completed 
[.his annual report before the remaining 
; reports of all the city departments were 
i placed on file in his office on Feb. 1. 
j By the adoption of a day book on ^ 
.Jan. 1. 1915. City Auditor B. J. Camp-) 
1 bell has been able to keep his account j 
right up to the minute every day of | 
the past year, and at the beginning of 
^-he j this year, was ready to prepare hia re- 
port. It required several day.s, as his 
balances must tally with those of the 
city treasurer, before the report could 
be officially given out. 

The auditor's report shows that the 
city received a total of $2,576,522.28 
from the appropriations, licenses and 
bond issues during the year, which, to- 
gether with $219,740.71 on balance an 
.Jan. 1. 1915. makes a total of-$2.796,- 
262 99 for the vear. The disbursements 
in all the departments in carrying on

$2.585. -.'05.46. leaving a 'balance at the 
opening of business on New Years day 
of $213,683.91. with $2,626.38 outstand

One week from today the increased 
tariff on interstate railwjiy rates will 
become effective, and this means that 
there will be devious methods em- 
ployed, in all probability, by many 
travelers to defeat the aim of the rul- 
ing to give the railtoads more passen- 
ger revenue for business that is inter- 

For instance, there is a 2-cent fare i 
in Minnesota and the new interstate j 
tariff calls for 2.4 cents. If a man ; 
wanted to go from Duluth to North i 
Dakota, say Fargo, for instance he 
couFd buy a ticket to Carlton, buy his t 
ticket from that point to East Grand i 
Forks, and thus ride the major portion ' 
of his journey on a 2-cent a mile j 
ticket. Instead of paying for a com- ! 
plete ticket at the Interstate rate of ' 
2.4 cents. i 

Luggage a Handicap. I 

Should a passenger have a lot of 
luggage, no doubt he or she would ex- 
perlence some trouble and considerable ' 
Inconvenienc- in getting by with an 
attempt to evade the interstate rule 
In buying a ticket to the state line* 
and then rebuying a ticket to a des- 
tination beyond, it would be necessary 
to ,recheck baggage, and in some 
ca^s this might require a lay-over. 

There is little question but that the 
placing ill effect of the extra 4-10 of 
a cent on- interstate business is going 
to make some trouble for the rail- 
roads. The railroads in the first place 
asked for an increase of % a cent, 
\yhich was granted and then later mo- 
dified to 4-10, thus causing a change 
of many tariffs and a vast amount of 

Now that the railroads have secured 
the increase in interstate passenger 
rates, railroad conductors and station 
agents will be put to additional trou- 
ble by additional ticket selling.

Contestants Suggest a 
Breakwater, Wider Su- 
perior Street, Homes for 
Wage-Earners and Own- 
ership of Utilities. 


Mxmiripal ownership of public utili- 
ties, a breakwater for the Duluth har- 
bor, the wid*>ning of Superior street, a 
home for every wage-earner, and the 
abolition of second-hand stores are 
among the latest sugrgestions offered 
by contestants in The Heralds "What 
would you do for Duluth?" prize com- 

Manlclpal rtlltties. 

C. Sundley, 2824 Minnesota avenue, a 
municipal-ownership advocate, sends 
In the following suggestions: 

"I would acQuire for Duluth all its 
municipal utilities. It could be ac- 
complished along the lines followed In 
taking over the waterworks. Then I 
would consider the city established on 
a perfectly sound financial basis, and 
then It would also be possible for our 
city government and officials to ren- 


What three things, if you had the power, would you do for Duluth, 
and how would you do them? 

Write out your answer, LIMITING IT TO TWO HUNDRED WORDS, 
put your name and address at the top of the sheet, and send it t« the 
Problem Editor of The Herald before Jan. 20. WRITE ONLY ON ONE 

For the best answer to this question The Herald will give a prize 
of $10. 

For the second best answer The Herald will give a prize of |6. 

For the third best answer The Herald will give a prize of $3. 

der the utmost service to their constlt- 
I uents. 

"I would establish a city hospital 
fully adequate In size and equipment 
I with a staff sufficient for day and 
night shifts (so a repetition of the 
Duluth Heights incident would not oc- 
cur), whose business it should be to 
attt-nd to sick people, regardless of 
any consideration. Let them pay if 
they can or let them extract a permit 
from the clerk of the poor commis- 
sioners afterward. 

Free Lesal Advice. 
"I would increase the staff of as- 
sistants in the city attorney's office 
1 sufficient to invite the citizens of Du- 
! luth who were in trouble and could 
I not easily afford the money costs of a 
law.suit to come in for advice and as- 

sistance. It should be the business of 
this office to try to adjust differences 
where possible, but In all events to see 
that nobody lacked justice on account 
of lack of money." 

Hoaiea for Wasre Eaneni. 

Homes for every wage earner is one 
of the suggestions offered by J. Henry 
Butters, 807 East Seventh street. He 
writes as follows: 

"In my mind the three most urgent 
needs of this city are: 

"A breakwater or a larger canal. In 
rough weather this is a very small 
opening for a big boat to make. The 
best way to do this would be with good 
concrete. This would help. If not

"A home for every wage earner. One 
owned by himself. Not given as a gift \ 
but earned by worker. This could be j 
done by forming a compariy with a ' 
large amount of capital. They could | 
purchase a large tract of land. No 
better place ihan on the Duluth 
Heights or above the boulevard could 
be mentioned. Here^let the company 
build homes to suit owners. The com- 
pany could finance the deal. The 
worker would pay interest at 6 to 6^^ j 
per cent, paymenta to be made like 
I rent. A system somewhat like this is 
in practice at Proctor, Minn. It helps 
j greatly to form a community-loving , 
people. i 

I "A college. One in which law, medi- 
cine, scieitces and arts" would be taught. ! 
! It is not right that* boys and girls of 
i Duluth after completing high school 
i should not have advantages of a good 
I school at home. Many a young man 

• and young woman of rare ability is 
'.forced into other occupations. Many 

fathers and mothers have not the 

• means to send their sons and daughters 
1 awav to school. If Duluth had a school 
!of this kind many thinkers would have 
I opportunities which they have not now. 

This school, if possible, should be a 
I school supported by taxowners. Surely, 
! there is more merit In this than in a 
$10,000,000 postofflce, a big ammunition 
I plant, or a "pork' river and harbor ap- 
I proprlatipn." 
I OppoarM Second-Hand Store*. 

David Winer, 211€ West Third street, 
I would abolish second-hand stores. He 
! also advocates a cleaner, healthier 
' city. Here is his letter: 

"First of all I would make a neat, 
clean and healthy looking city by mak- 
ing laws to keep back yards clean, 
keep the alleys in good shape, tear 
down old buildings where it is neces- 
sary, because Duluth is a city where 
thousands of tourists visit annually 
and through them it gets its reputa- 

"Secondly, I would encourage tire 
1 educational department with all noy 
! heart because the world greatly de- i 
I mands men with an education, and 
i make the fire department larger be- 
' cause Duluth is growing fast and It 
needs to be protected. I would make a 
law that the saloon should be closed 
Christmas and New Year's because It 
makes me feel very Ba4 to see men 
having a high time at the saloon 
whereas they should be spending a 
peaceful and happy holiday at home 
with the wife and children. 

'♦Last, and not least, I would close 
up the second-hand stores because they 
disgrace Duluth and give the man a 
poor deal." 

^W^oald WIdea Street. 
The dream of a Greater Duluth 
would be realized if Superior street 
were widened and traffic conditions 
Improved, if the city owned the street 
railway system, and If congress would 
appropriate money for harbor Improve- 
ments, suggests A. A..- Vogt. 403 W^ol- 
vln building. He writes: 

"The three things, if I had the power 
(and we have), that I would (and we 
will) do for Duluth. are: 

"First— I would have Superior street 
widened. If there Is (and there will 
be) to be a Great* r Duluth, traffic con- 
ditions will necessitate our doing so. 
"Second — We would have a munici- 
pally owned street railway. I .would 
carry the "franchise question" to the 
United States supreme court and have 
this proven, that one generation cannot 
vote another's rights a^ay. For ex- 
ample, the seeminp-ly perpetual fran- 
chise under which- the street railway 
is being operated. 

"Third and lastly^-I would have con- 
gress make an appropr^ation for the 
dredging of the bay and river to en- 
courage and in anticipation of the ra- 
pidly developing industries of the 
western section of Our city. 

"Apparently these three things are 
idle thoughts of a dretfhier. yet they 
are problem* of the futyre." 

Wants Cleaa Sidewalks. 
John 8. Mueller, 926 East Second 

street, has some Ideas about clean side- 
walks, reduced rates to the steel plant 
from the city, and traffic problems. 
Here is how he expresses them: 

"ihe three things I would do for 
Duluth if I had the power would be: 

"First — Compel merchants and occu- 
pant.'^ (owners) on the main streets 
and in the center "of the town to keep 
their sidewalks < pavements) free from 
ice and .snow. 

"Second — Compel the Northern Paci- 
fic railroad to reduce their rates to the 
steel plant and greatly improve the 

"Third — Keep culverts and street 
crossings (as at Second avenue west 
and Superior street) covered with sand 
or gravel, also all smooth steel coal 
and man hole covers should be replaced 
by roughened or corrugated ones, or 
covered with sheet lead like the Mason 
treads on stairways. 

"If there are ordinances covering 
any of the foregoing I would have 
them enforced."

plies— the fostering of respect for the 
name of God and the suppression of 
profanity. The branch of the society 
at the Cathedral parish has been In 
existence for about five years and has 
recently been one of the most active 
organizations of the parish.

Arrangements have been about com- 
pleted by the amusement committee of 
Clan Stewart for the Robert Burns 
banquet on the evening of Jan. 25. The 
affair will take place at the Spalding 
hotel, and it is expected that, as usual, 
it will be largely attended. At every 
celebration of the-birth anniversary of 
Robert Burns, Scotland's great poet, 
the Spalding ballroom has been filled. 
.\ot only do the sons and daughters of 
Scotia, and their descendants attend in 
full numbers, but hundreds of other 
Duluthians make it a point to be pres- 
ent, for Jan. 25 Is one of the gala 
nights of the city, and Clan Stewart, 
aided, abetted and assisted by Simon 
Clark, has long since established a 
reputation, well maintained, as host 
that serves as a model for other so- 

The chief speaker of the evening 
will be John Z. White of Chicago, a 
student of the lif^ and works of Rob- 
ert Burns, and said to be an eloquent 
speaker. Mr. White will be in th« city 
giving a series of addresiaes on the 
single tax, and some time ago accepted 
an invitation to make the speech of 
the evening on Burns. 

Program Following Ban^oet. 
Rev. (Jeorge Brewei-. pastor of the 
First Presbyterian church, will give 
the invocation which will open the 
banquet. Followinit the meal, during 
which Scotch and "profane" viands will 
be served, there will be a musical pro- 
gram, and, following that, a danee. The 
program follows, as completed to date, 
more numbers to be announced later:

Captain of Thessaloniki 

Tells of Their Working in 

Four Feet of Water. 

New York, Jan. 8. — The story of how 
the crew of the Greek steamer Thes- 
saloniki, before abandoning the vessel 
on Jan. 6, worked for ten days in from 

three to four feet of water in a des- 
perate effort to keep steam in the 
ship's boilers and work the pumps, was 
told today when Capt. Ooulandris and 
the crow of eighty-nine arrived on the 
steamship Perugia. 

Capt. cloulandris said the actions of 
his crew was so heroic that he did not 
give up hope of bringing the Thessa- 
loniki into N<»w York until the coal 
supply was entirely exhausted on .Jan. 
5. He declined to comment upon state- 
ments made by some of the Thessa- 
lonlki'.^ 177 passengers when th*»y ar- 
rived here yesterday on th*^ Patris that 
be had refused to send out wireless 
calls for assistance after the steamer 
had sprung several l.^aks. 

Capt. CJoulandris said he believed the 
vessel, the first he ever commanded, 
had sunk soon after he and his men 
boarded the Perugia. He added that 
the Thessaloniki was badly strained 
by a series of ftorms. It was then that 
ail the crew turned to and despite the 
water that swirled about them worked 
constantly at the boilers, engines and 


Organized survey of rural church 
conditions in this state was in prospect 
today. The moN^ment probably will 
b« started within a few months and 
completed in about a year, with the 
aid of a small army of volunteer work- 
ers, including churchmen and agricul- 
turists. Present plans call for use of 
the survey as a basis for a future ex- 
tensive campaign for church and 
country life improvement in tho state. 
All work will be inter-denominational. 
Word of the prospective church sur- 
vey came today from headquarters of 
the commission on church and country 
life at Columbus, Ohio, and names of 
a number of men in this state who 
have the plans under consideration 
wt^re made known. The arrangements 
w^ re Jii^cussed at the national church 
and country life conference held re- 
cently in Columbus, where President 
Wilson was one of the speakers. Del- 
egates from this state held a special 
conference at that meeting to formu- 
late tentative plans for a rural church 
survey, to be started as soon aa pos- 
sible after their return. 

L«aden« In Minnesota. 
Among the persons who are txpected 
to be leaders in the movement in Min- 
nesota are E. H. Edwards of Castle 
Rock, J. H. Kolb of St. Paul and Rev. 
Fred B. Hill of Nvrthfield. 

iSimilar surveys are contemplated in 
most other states. Working plans are 
to be -modeled after those used during 
Wie last year in Ohio, where the first 
state-wide sclentifle inquiry into coun- 
try church conditions ever made in 
the United .States Is now being com- 
pleted by a state association working 
under the superviation of the commis- 
sion on church and country life, a sub- 
sidiary body oif the Federal Council of 
Churches, an intier-denominational or- 
ganization of heads of churches in the 
United States. r 

Each of the hundreds of volunteer 
workers who would be employed in 
such a survey as that contemplated in 
this state wowld ascertain fa<?ts about 
country churches within the township 
at locality asi4if:n»d to him, such as 
these, for example:* Membership, loca- 
tion, distance from another church and 
nature of members (whether farm 
owners or tenarfts). These facts would 
be, reported to a central office and aa- 
sem'bled there. , ' 

Ohject of Snrvey. 
The results .shown then would be 
used as the busis for an educational 
campaign to, make churches extend 
their functions to include some of 
these inter'esf';^: Federation of several 
churches in , each cdmmunity, good 
roads, public health, better farming 
with special stress on agricultural 
college extension work, co-operation 
among farmers for buying, selling and 
producing, consolidated schools, public 
recreation and establishment of social 
and recreational centers and churches. 
Country preaclj^ers^re to be urged to 
educate themselves more thoroughly 
in the practical interests and needs of 
a community without sacrificing pure- 
ly religious work. 

Among the results indicated by the 
incomplete ruri^l church survey in 
Ohio are thes«: Eighty-three per cent 
of the churchej* have less than 100 
members and 21 per cent have less 
than twenty-five. Only one in sixteen 
has an individual preacher and a large 
proportion of preachers get about the 
same pay as a day laborer. I>ess than 
40 per cent of the rural population 
are church members. Only one-third 
are increasing in membership and one 
church in nine has been abandoned in 
recent years.

Rome. Jan. 8. — A fishing vessel put

was fired upon and sunk while con-

the First M. E. church of Duluth.) 
Our author is a working pa.stor and 
a. discriminating student of men and 
books, lie is therefore eminently Qual- 
ified for the lucid and comprehensive i m-nt 
etudy he offers us in this volume. In i 
«even chapters ht sketches the salient I 
features of Christian thougiit and life., 
He reminds us that his treatment ol | 
ea«h aspect of Christianity is not ex- ' 
haiistive. neither is it final. He alms 
rather to give us the indispensable; 
ba. kground of Christian « xperience 
and Christian activities. His rational | 
optimism and intelligent grasp of the; 
fundamentals of Christian faith and 
practice are most refreshing. His book. 
Is timely, illuminating, and invaluable 
to the many who are reconstructing 
their moral world in accord with mod- j 
ern thought. , , , 

Th*^ Introduction Is a rapid survey of 
our modern religious situation, of the | 
leading ideas of the New Testament. ■ 
and the progress of Christian doctrine ; 
through the centuries. In this broad ; 
review ot the past and the present our

I to learn that of the fourteen senators 
who voted to have the Federal govern-

eleven of them were the own-

seventy-five funny stories drawn from

falls upon motives rather than 
actions. Loyalty to truth, forbear- 
ance, love and helpfulness are the su- 
preme virtues to be cultivated. 

In applying the Christian Idea and 
I ideal to war. our author believes that 
the Christian can only engage In it 
for purposes of defending the values 
, es.«icntlal to life and progress. Not- 
i withstanding the much advertised ben- 
' efits of war. the ideals of Jesus re- 
quire persuasion, not coercion, service 
and sacrifice on the part of the state 
as well as of the individual, and the 
Infemational practice of forbearance 
and hospitality. In this view the istate 
is slmpl*- a method for advancing the 
welfare of the race in general and the 
highf St human Interests of those in- 
cluded within its sovereign sw.ay. 

We are told Jesus emphasized hu- 
man worth, truth, justice, love, char- 
acter as the supreme aim of life

Christian hope for the destiny of the i 
iruividual and of the race; and there 
l.o a Christian organism in whirh the 
v.hole movement -inds e/ub-'diment

L>r. Powell then proceeds to analyze i 
his understanding of the faith of aj 
Christian in broad outline. \N hile our 
creeds are seen to be the ouicome of a| 
leactlon from opposing forms of 
thougiit. yet four elements are oiscov 
erable which constitute a Christian 
philosophy. "They are the Fatherhood 
of Cod, the Brotherhood of Man. 
Mastership of Jesus Christ. / nd 
Immortal Destiny of the ."luinan i>oul. 
In unfolding the content of these es- 
sentials we learn that Cod is conceived 

and ju«t; that 

i'hrlst was not an economist, neither 
was He a Socialist. He had no in- 
dustrial program. If one would be 
, Christian In his methods of production 
and distribution he must adjust these 
I to the moral passion ami purpose of 
i Jesus. We must learn that s.rvlce 
I rather than profits is the aim of com- 
merce and souls as well as steel must 
be figured in the cost of production. 
Whatever one's intellectual view of 
Christianity, the really great thing Is 
an experience of tJou. It Is this in- 
. i ward realization that is vital and ba- 
sal. Only thus will one be aware of 
spiritual forces and enjoy a fine com-

Sanitation of the Swimming Pool 

brcnd of underwear [ pool is calcium hypochlorite, added in 

sufficient quantity to make a propor- 
tion of one part of chlorine to one 
million of water — and added to the wa- 
ter often enough to keep the propor- 
tion at that ratio. 

fflTTF: only 
we can truly term hygienic is 
a clean, healthy skin. The ; 
public swimming pool, the : 
swimming school, the public j 
bath and the old swimming { 
hole in : wlmming season are all hy- 
gienic factors. Yet. like the common 
drinking cup. the common bath is open 
to disease germs every day in the year, 
and hence a possible source of infection. 
Typhoid fever has certainly been 
transmitted from carrier to \ictim in 
the swimming pool, no matter whether 
the pool be owned by club, school, city, 
private individual, steamship or relig- 
ious organization. The water of the 
pool should be examined at definite 
Intervals for colon bacilli jast as In 
the control of a source of drinking 

Bathers should be required to fur- 
nish a certificate from their physician, 
stating that they are free from con- j 
taglous disease. Furthermore, although 
It seems a paradox, bathers should be 
compo'led 'o bathe before entering the 
pool, for the same reason that a cook | 
«houId wash her hands before she hulls \ 
the strawberries. j 

Frequent refilling and dilution of 
the w iter is ecmomical and efficient 
when combined with chemical disin- 
feJtlon of the water. 

Venereal disease may be transmit- 
ted through the swimming pool. Con- 
junctivitis and ear inflammation may 
likewise be acquired from the Infected 

The larger the pool the more sani- 
tary it will be. The smaller the number 
of persons using it the more sanitary 
the pool. 

The most efficacious chemical disin- 
fectant for the water of the swimmlnt: 

The ComoAon Cigar Cutter. 

What complaints have been made 
against the common cigar cutter as a 
transmitter of disease? 

Answer — The same complaint as has 
been made against the common drink- 
ing cup and the still more common 
towel. A good many men moisten a 
cigar first, and cut It afterward. That 
contaminates the cutter with saliva, 
and common saliva Is a pretty danger- 
ous medium of exchange. 

Baby Holding His Breath. 

How long is it possible for a baby to 
hold his breath? a worried mother in- 
quires. Our little boy. 6 months old. 
sometimes alarms us when he shows 
his temper that way. 


The old truth, 
its substance, is 

The arrangement of the topics is 
perfect — logical, corresponding to ex- 
perience, illuminating. "Religion." "The 
, Bible. " "Jesus Christ." "God." "The 
Cross,' "The New Life." "The Church." 
"Life Everlasting," reveal an outer 
I order of logic ard inner process of 
! spiritual experience. He does not stress 
the virgin birth, but he speaks strong- 
ly for the resurrection, while giving 
no personal conviction of the former, 
leaves his whole argument, throughout 
the book, to Implicate and suggest it. 
we think. 

The introduction Is one of the most 
suggestive and satisfying chapters of 
the work and we wish we might ex- 
tend this notice to consider it at length. 
It will amply repay careful reading by 
casual reader and expert theologian 
alike. The whole book is readable, 
suggestive tnd illuminating.

This is the second of a series of 
books by Prof. Beard "intended to be a 
modest contribution to American his- 
tory rewritten along economic lines." 
The first was an "Economic Interpreta-

equally convincing effect the 

ever new. eternal In I economic origins of the differences be- 
viewed in Us present ; tween the parties and their economic

thor relates them to an economic im- 
: pulse. ^^ ■ ^ 

The book is not for a rhristmas 
buyer. It is readable, one might say 
fascinating, and would make a valu- 
able addition to the library of any 
student of American politics.

(By a Former West Pointer,) 
This publication, in spite of its rath- 
er technical and somewhat formidable 
title, should be carefully read by all 
patriotic American citizens and espe- 
cially by those who are interested in 
a sane and careful preparation on the 
part of the American government to 
meet with dignity and strength what- 
ever situations may develop at the 
close of the present war In Europe. 

The author has carefully arranged 
all of the data presented In such a 
manner that the reader need not be 
qualified at all, from a military' stand- 
point, to intelligently criticize the past 

quotes on a flyleaf that "we may trace; activities of tiie government when con 

the contest between the capitalist and 
the democratic pioneer from the earli- 
est colonial days." Yet the book Is the 
production of a highly trained histori- 
cal investigator who takes a pride In chapter that deals with that particular

perlence which enables hirn to general- | g^mg

deduced from each of the conflicts that 
the United States has participated in 
are summarized at the close of the

not Intended to make converts; but be 
the reader Whig or Tory, he will lay 
aside the book with a more intelligent 
understanding of the fundamentals of 
his own political philosophy, and with 
a more generous appreciation of his op- 
ponent's point of view. 

The author first pursues an investi- 
gation of the party alignments during 
the first decade of our national hls- 
tor.v. and compares them with the ad- 
vocates and

each war has developed the fact that 
we were In no way prepared to meet It. 
for the reason that congress, apparent- 
ly fearing that a military government 
might be Imposed upon a free people, 
had practically dismissed during the 
preceding peace the entire standing

For example, at the' beginning of the 
Civil war, the entire army numbered 
16,367 officers and men. 

The striking tables* on pages 2<6-6, 
278-9-80 and 81 should be carefully stud- 
led. They show the number of men en-

measure off so much of fats, so much

can't work it quite as mathematically 
as that with yourself, but you cari 
use sense and science and moderation 
in your diet and get good results. Di. 
Wiley in a very sensible way which 
estimates diet fads adequately and ac-

his book is well worth reading, study-

It is interesting to note from the 
fourth annual publication of this val- 
uable digest that there are automatic 
workmen's compensation laws In thlr- 
tv-one states and two territories. 
various enactments differ widely in 
their administrative details and in the 
amount and method of compensation, 
though all designed to meet the same 
end and having many features In com- 
mon. In this digest the law of each 
state is analyzed under forty-five head- 
ings which cover the essential feat- 
ures' of compensation laws in this 
country. The arrangement is Ingen- 
iously convenient, and the Information 
comnlete. Lawyers and other students 
of the subject will find the digest of 
large value to them.

ncrniaiiy's final rtsponse to America's 
demands in the Lusitania case is a complete 
victory for America. Germany agrees with 
cvory contention, agrees to give compen- 
sation for lost American lives and, more- 
ov^.T. in addition volimtarilj' agrees not to 
torpedo non-combatant vessels of any kind 
in the Mediterranean without giving warn- 
iti;^ and taking care of passengers and crew. 

1 1 is a great victory for the United States. 
It is a great victory for President Wilson 
ani his policies. It is a great victory for 
the .\merican system, for which any imagiti- 
ab-e aniotmt of armament would be but a 
S'^iTi- substitute. 

Germany refuses to disavow the sinking 
of the Lusitania, but insists that it was an 
ac: of reprisal for the British blockade. It 
i* more to Genuany's interest than to ours 
that she should disavow and repudiate that 
ac« of coldblooded murder. The hurt of her 
faj'ure to disavow it is hers, not ours. Her 
promise hot to do it again, and her agree- 
ment to make reparation, is a substantial 
cotnpliance with .American demands. 

It is a great victory — the greatest diplo- 
matic victorj' gained by this or any other 
country in generations. 

And it was gained without taking a single 
liiV ur firing a shot or leveling a gun!

The Nations Business, which is spokes- 
ina!i for the United States Chamber of 
ConiuKTce, an organization representing the 
bu.iiness of the country, has sounded the 
indictment of business against war. 

■ We must," it says, "substitute law for Until the present day, business men 
ha'c not discussed practical methods for 
the pre\eution of war. Since, however^ the 
European conflict began the peaceful neu- 
tral world has begun to realize that there 
may be within its reach a means of pre- 
venting future conflicts in a general uii- 
dei standing to use economic pressure 
against nations or peoples which refuse to 
listen to the voice of reason and concilia- 
tioi. American business men very gener- 
ally have come to recognize the world's 
iraj>erative need to substitute law for war. 
Th?y realize also the stake of every Amer- 
ican citizen and particularly of American 
business men in the prevention of future 

The United States Chamber of Commerce 
recently submitted to its members the re- 
port of a committee appointed to consider 
tai« matter, accompanied by a referendum 
on certain definite proposals. It is to be 
reg;retted sincerely that the importance of 
the^e proposals seems to have escaped the 
Duluth Commercial club, which has failed 
to take action upon them. But in the final 
api»eal made by this report to the intelli- 
ge«ice and business sense of its members, 
the committee spoke these true words: 

We i-annot escape It if we would, w© 
W'uld not if we could. The call of wom- 
en and children, fsuffering indescribably 
fri»ni needless war. is an Inevitable com- 
|Mil<«ir>n to all Americans, and not least to 
American business men. 

It is plea'^ant indeed to note that most of 
the commercial organizations makinjr up 
th« Chamber of Commerce of the United 
States participated in the referendum on 
this question, and that they voted over- 
vhelniingly in favor of the very practical 
proposals it contained. The proposal to 
br:ng economic pressure to bear against 
any nation that resorts to arms without 
sUiDiitting its grievance to an international 
coart. though it met the most opposition of 
any. carried by a vote of 556 to 157. It is 
wc>rihy to nc)te that the proposal to use 
concerted military action if economic pres- 
sure proves insufficient failed to get enough 
votes to commit the organization to it, 
th'>ugh it now stands committed to all the 

fn brief, the plan proposed in the refer- 
endum of the United States Chamber of 
Cc»t"nierce, which the Duluth Commercial 
club apparently has not deemed worthy of 
any action whatever, consists of the forma- 
tion of an international agreement for arbi- 
tration of arbitrable issues and conciliation 
where issues are not arbitrable, together 
with an agreement to exert economic pres- 
sure against any nation that goes to war 
without referring its grievance to the prop- 
er tribunal. The plan is practical, though 
neither radical nor visionary: and it de- 
serves at least the respect of thorough con- 

There is a moral side to war, and a sen- 
timental side. On both counts war stands 
condemned, with not a friend to raise a 
voice in its behalf. 

Bui there is also a material side, a side 

that must appeal to business men, even to 
those business men, if there are any such, 
who are immune to the moral and senti- 
mental appeal. 

For war is bad business. Preparation for 
it absorbs labor, decreasing the supply and 
increasing the price. Preparation for it 
burdens industry and commerce with need- 
less taxes. War itself first absorbs more 
labor, and then destroys it; besides adding 
to the tax burden. Paying for war after it 
is over — war debt and pensions — still furth- 
er increases the tax handicap on commerce 
and industry. Even though it is able to 
pass much of the financial burden on to its 
patrons, business is <^>ne of the first and 
most direct sufferers from war in all its 
angles. Business ought to be against war 
as surely as it is again inefficiency, thrift- 
lessness and other wastes that hurt busi- 

Business in this country, generally, IS 
against war. It may not delude itself with 
dreamy of an immediate millenium; it is too 
hardheadcd for that. But also it is too 
hardheaded to let itself be deluded by the 
superstition that anything so bad for 
business as war is beyond the reach of 
human will and purpose.

"are preparing to put his name on the Minne- 
sota presidential primary ballots." It la in- 
teresting to note that these willing work- 
ers are not described by any party designa-

viction that the best is none too good for

moment's communion with Abe, He Is

cotmsel cleverly expressed. 

Nor will the little ones be forgotten, for 
there will be Bedtime Tales by Clara In- 
gram Tudion — quaint little stories, good to 
read to the younger folks when bedtime 
draws near. 

For the housekeeper there will be "Effi- 
cient Housekeeping," by Henrietta D.

a practical housekeeper.

How are you getting on with the New 
Year's resolutions? 

Finding them a pretty heavy load?. 
They'll be that for awhile, but once you get 
the hang of it the load lightens amazingly. 
There is no better exercise for character- 
making than sticking to a resolution. It 
breeds a new strength that pretty soon you 
will be glorying in. 

It's tough enough at first. The first ad- 
justment of the resolutions to stop doing 
this or that, or to start doing somehing or 
other, finds you weak — a lot weaker than 
you realized. The habit you are trying to 
throw off has subtly undermined your 
strength, and you find it out when you seek 
the strength to discard the habit. That 
strength you can regain in but one way — 
by grimly determining to beat that habit or 
perish in the attempt — and by beating it. 
That gives you a strength worth sacrificing 
nuich for, because it will help you in a lot 
of other things. 

Some people make a joke of New Year's 
resolutions, and that's wrong. They are no 
joke. Those who make them do so out of 
a realization of wrong-doing. They are do- 
ing something that hurts themselves or 
hurts others, and they know they ought to 
quit it. So they resolve t6 quit it. The 
trouble with many is that they take these 
resolutions too lightly, without properly 
counting the cost and the struggle: and 
when the cost proves great and the strug- 
gle bitter, they fall by the wayside and slide 
back. And that's as bad for character as 
it is good for character to stick to it and 
come through a victor. 

If you have already brokca j«>ur resolu- 

time you break it your strength will be a 
little less; but remember that the only way 
on earth to gain the strength of character 
you ought to have and want to have is by 
just such struggles as this. Be a little 
afraid of being a coward and a weakling, 
as you confess j'ourself to be if you admit 
that your habit is stronger than your will. 
Refuse to be a coward and a weakling, and 
beat that habit. By so doing you will de- 

which it is extracted, is one hundred per 
cent plain tommyrot, and not the less tom- 
myrot because it is couched in pseudo- 
psychological terms. 

..JJfesident Wilson never asked the Amer- 
ican people to be. neutral in feeling. He did 
a^ them to refrain from unneutral acts. No- 
I body has been neutral in thought except the 
igfrtdrant. There is nobody who has not 
been pro-Teuton or pro-ally; though of late 

velop muscles of character and fit yourself Iwe-5»ee encouraging developments of a sen- 

for other struggles, perhaps more vital still, 
later on. ^ 

Don't let anybody laugh you out of your, 
resolutions, and don't laugh anybody else 
out of his. It's a serious matter, and it 
means a lot. 

A man comes to realize, on the morning 
after his New Year's eve drunk, that he is 
drinking too much and that it is hurting 
him — hurting his will, his strength, his am- 
bition, his efficiency. He tries to quit. He 
goes a little way on his hard and narrow 
road of self-denial, and then falls. And 
people make a joke of it! It's a tragedy, 
not a joke. 

A man comes to realize that he is spend- 
ing too much money and not laying any- 
thing by for the future, and he determines 
on New Year's day to live within his in- 
come and save something. Then, a few 
days later, temptation comes and habit 
proves too strong and he buys something 
he has no business to buy. His resolution 
is broken, and people make a joke of it. It's 
no joke, but a tragedy: for who is to care 
for this man when he is old and his earn- 
ing power is gone? 

Stick to your New Year's resolutions. If 
you find yourself slipping, stick on like 
grim death, shut your eyes and clench your 
teeth and tighten your grip. After a little 
while the worst of it wjll be over, your 
habit will be broken, and you will have 
earned a new strength of character and a 
new self-respect that is well worth the 
struggle — or any struggle, however hard 
and bitter.

Duluth is to have the privilege — and it is 
a privilege — of seeing Forbes-Robertson 
once more before his farewell tour ceases 
and he retires from the stage. He is to be 
here three days next week, playing his.tvvan 
greatest parts — the Passerby in "The P^ss- 

timent that is pro-humanity, and that puts 
the interests of the common humanity high- 
»«ir^han the interest of any nation or any 
alliance of nations. 

But to say that America lacks a purpose 
is to state a silly falsehood. 

America HAS a purpose, and it is a pur- 
pose passionately held. President Wilson 
exemplifies and expresses that purpose by 
every word and act, and partisanship for- 
gotten — when it can be forgotten — the 
whole American people shares it with him. 

That purpose is to keep aloof from Eu- 
rope's domestic quarrel if it is possible; to 
hold aloft meanwhile the threatened lamp 
of civilization; to uphold persistently the 
rights of neutrals, in which are bound up 
the rights of the common humanity; to 
keep America freed from the contagion of 
ipilitarisni, -which is a chronic disease that 
broke out in violently acute form in August 
of 1914; to yield justice freely to every 
other people and nation and to exact jus- 
tice — and nothing but justice — from every 
other people and nation; to avoid war by 
avoiding the wanton affronts and arrogant 
covetousness that provokes war; to help 
npake war impossible by giving the world 
tlie most vivid proof that nations that be- 
have toward other nations as one civilized 
man behaves toward other "civilized men are 
in no danger of war. 

ihie purpose of the United States — a pur- 
pose passionately held and ardently pur- 
sued — is the purpose to exemplify justice 
and fairness atid decency in international 
Jrdakions, and so to teach the world that 
it is possible for nations to live together 
without war, and to uphold national ideals 
without sacrificing men, women and chil- 
'<fr%h on the altar of international brigan- 

J^txe difticulty the New Republic has in 
seeing this purpose, and the ease with which 
^k finds occasion to make captious criti- 
cisms of the president, can be more easily 
tu^erstood when it is realized that its edi- 
tors were mainly ardent Bull Moosers three 
.years, ago.^ and that the New Republic is 
affected by an irresistible impulse to regard

ing, is superb in both these roles, but to 
our thought "The Passin^g of the Third 
Floor Back" is a greater role than Hamlet, 
because it is more human. From a literary 
viewpoint — from a technical dramatic view- 
point, too, so far as that is concerned — of 
course this play is not to be compared with 
"Hamlet." From a human viewpoint, on 
the other hand, "Hamlet" is not to be com- 
pared with the Passerby. 

In this strange and undramatic play fiic 
Passerby, a gentle, humble, kindly figure, 
comes into a squalid, dingy London board- 
ing house, infested with mean, bickering, 
backbiting specimens upon whom time and 
hard knocks have made vicious marks. First, 
there is a picture of this ugly collection, 
epitomized by the slatternly maid-of-all- 
work when she says: "Wot's the good of us 
all?" Then, one by one the Passerby sum- 
mons back to life the submerged and for- 
gotten better selves of these miserables, and 
this transformation is the play. * At the end, 
his work accomplished, the Passerby passes 
on to other work, the subtle atmosphere of 
holiness that surrounds his gentle figure 
through the play growing more vivid at the 
end. Witnessing this transformation of 
human beirigs from what they ought not to 
be to what they ought to be, developed by 
the Passerby as Forbes-Robertson plays it, 
is a real privilege. 

And yet "Hamlet" is a great play, the 
prince of Denmark is a great role, and 
Forbes-Robertson is a great Hamlet. 

After a lifetime devoted to art of the 
highest type. Sir Johnstone Forbes-Robert- 
son is about to retire at the height of his 
powers and in the fullness of his fame. His 
has been a life worth while, and the good 
wishes and good will of his thousands of 
admirers on this side of the water will go 
with him into private life. 

Only one of our ex-presidents is actively 
urged for the supreme court vacancy.

The New Republic is a .new "journal of 
opinion." Its matter is supplied by a very 
clever coterie of young men, and as a rule 
It is good; though sometimes the publication 
is so over-burdened with its vocation of 
highbrovvism that it grows stilted. Then, 
too, it is in danger of finding itself cursed 
with a chilled, bloodless intellectualism so 
over-refined that it floats so high into rare- 
fied upper atmospheres as to find itself 
beyond glimpse of human truth. 

For instance, one of its editors has a 

piece complaining of a lack of American 


We Americans have been w^itnessing 
supreme drama, clenching our fists, talk- 
ing, yet unable to fasten any reaction to 
realities. Ferment without issue, gesta- 
tion without birth, is making us sullen 
and self-conscious and ashamed. The 
source of our trouble may b© traced di- 
rectly to the president's first message 
to the Am<irican people, when we >irere 
asked to be neutral in feeling. That 
negative injunction was bound to fail, 
and the vacillation of America has ever 
since grown more serious. What Presi- 
dent Wilson seems not to understand is 
that the enunciation of a great purpose 
which enlists emotion is the only ^vay to 
avoid that clashing of emotions from 
which we suffer. 


r. > SHIP. 

A Biwabik man asks about the anomalous 
condition''«if "dual nationality" which has 
been one of the unexpected discoveries of 
the war. 

It is a delicate situation, and one that 
might some time be, prolific in trouble. Yet 
it is a situation that can hardly be cured 
while the war is in progress, and its treat- 
ment must be postponed until peace comes. 
With the end of war, this country should 
arraiige treaties with the nations concerned 
that will remove this difficult anomaly. 

There are certain nations that do not 
recognize the alienation of citizenship. A 
man comes to the United States from such 
a country, makes his home here perma- 
nently, meets the requirements of the law 
and becomes a citizen of the United States 
after renouncing allegiance to his former 
ruler, marries and rears a family. To us, 
-he is a citizen of the United States — an 
American— and his children of course are 

But to the country from which he came 
he is not an American, but a subject of the 
sovereign of that country— and not only he, 
but his children. If he should go back— 
or if his adult son should go back and he 
shoi^ld be discovered to be the son of a 
former subject— he is liable for military 
duty. In short, he and his children are re- 
garded legally as though they had never 

, been away. 

Of course we can't tolerate this, and of 
course some time it is likely to make trou- 
ble. The situation has been adjusted with 
some countries, but not with all. Probably 
it can't be adjusted while the war is on. but 
as soon as the war is over it ought to be 

adjusted promptl)'.

Washington, Jan. 8. — (Special to The 
Herald.) — In response to the G. O. P.'s signal 
of distress. Wall Street is to the rescue. 
Now, Wall Street is a practical concern and 
§hoves aside the score or so chips and whet- 
stones, favorite sons, who are candidates for 
the Republican nomination, and presents 
Theodore Roo.sevelt as the favorite of Big 
Business to boss the job of president of the 
United States. A Republican campaign with- 
out boodle would be like hospitalltj^ without 
food, and It must be pleasing to many of the 
faithful that Wall Street is again enlisted. 
But Wall Street serves notice that It must 
name the head of the ticket. 

The political slate is to be wiped clean of 
all the old issues except a faint trace of the 
tariff, and "preparedness for war" is to be- 
come paramount, as pronouncedly so as the 
tariff of 1892. or silver of 1896. There is but 
one man in the country fit to lead such a 
campaign as that, and his name Is Roosevelt. 
That war over yonder will come to an end a 
year or two hence, and our munitions plants 
will be out of customers. So a domestic 
market is to be created. Roosevelt Is in 
favor of an army and a navy that can lick 
all creation, while Wilson would be content 
with a preparedness that would hold Japan 
in check, our only possible antagonist for 
years to come. 

« e • 

Such a campaign, financed by Wall Street 
and led by Theodore Roosevelt, would be 
very formidable. All the jingoes would flock 
to the standard and the mercenaries would 
enlist to a man. It Is announced in the New 
York Tribune that* Col. Roosevelt would 
sooner support Wilson than any Republican 
running oh a platform that does not de- 
nounce Germany. That is a shrewd move, 
for it is notorious that the sentiment for the 
Entente allies Is overwhelming In our coun- 
try, and a skillful and agile politician like 
the Colonel can be depended on to play this 
string for all it Is worth and make a million 
damphools think that a vote for Wilson is a 
vote for Germany. 

Now, there is the scheme — Roosevelt for 
president, "preparedness" the platform, "to 
hell with Germany" the battle cry. Then 
make Cortelyou manager of the campaign, 
give him a boodle- fund that would make 
Mark Hanna a piker, and the country would 
witness a campaign, the storm of which 
would make that of 1896 a zephyr. 

Everybody knows that no Republican 
ticket will stand the ghost of a show unless 
it has the O, K. of Theodore Roosevelt. There 
is the best authority for it that the Colonel 
has eliminated all the Republicans "men- 
tioned" except Hughes, Hadley and Knox. 
Hughes has eliminated himself and it would 
be suicide to name either Knox or Hadley. 
Root and Burton engineered the Taft steam- 
roller that ran over Roosevelt in the national 
convention of 1912 and all the other favorite 
sons from Weeks to Alden Smith, from Fair- 
banks to Borah, are simply impossible. 

Then there is nothing to do but to name 
Roosevelt, put Fairbanks at the tail of the 
ticket, set Cortelj-ou to manage the cam- 
paign, levy contributions on Wall Street, go 
in for an army that can li«'k Germany's, a 
navy that can beat England's*, and cuss the 
Dutch. That Is the scheme as at present 
contemplated, and the country might as well 
reconcile itself to endure It. And it might 
win. Ours is an emotional and a mercurial 
people. Time very likely would undo the 
the enterprise, as time beat Greeley in 1872 
and Bryan in 1896. Both Greeley and Bryan 
had the country overwhelmingly for thorn 
in August before the November elections. 
So did Hancock in 1880. 

The New York Tribune, the leading Re- 
publican organ of the country, is out for 
Roosevelt, and making fun of that regiment 
of favorite sons. The Kansas City Star, a 
great and powerful newspaper with an enor- 
mous constituency, is for the Colonel. The 
Progressives — If they are back In the party 
— compose a majority of the party; Wall 
Street Is for the Colonel, and who and what 
are to prevent his nomination? Corporations 
have no souls; but the Steel trust has grati- 
tude, a mighty good substitute for a soul, aa 
souls go in Big Business circles. Mr. Gary 
remembers the indulgence President Roose- 
velt granted hlni to absorb for his Steel trust 
the Tennessee Coal & Iron company and the 
twelve-billion dinner the other Friday was a 
Steel trust spread. 

Of course the "Old Guard" would kick; but 
the Colonel has winning ways and on occa- 
sion can practice the philosophy of Talley- 
rand and treat his enemies as though they 
were become friends. Besides, your Stand- 
patter is like Tammany Hall. He Is bound 
to support the ticket. Your Standpatter Is 
what the late Murat Halstead called a "yaller 
dog politician," and holds to the idea that a 
bolt Is the same as treason, or a little samer. 
* • • 

Here and there, of course, one would run 
across a Standpatter who looks on the Col- 
onel as Theodore Hallam looked upon Will- 
lam Goebel. Hallam was making a speech 
for John Young Brown, the antl-Goebel Dem- 
ocratlc candidate for governor of Kentucky 
In 1899. and someone interrupted to butt in: 

"Theodore, T heard you say you would vote 
for a yaller dog if he was the Democratic 

"So I did and so I will." answered Hallam, 
"but lower than a yaller dog I flatly refuse 
to do."

Saturday Night Talk 


By tit* Pano& 

C^rip Fa«t. 

The coat of arms of the ancient Scottish 
house of Leslie bears three golden buckles 
and the motto: "Grip fast." The device wa» 
granted ceiituries ago by a grateful sovereign 
to Bartholomew Leslie for his gallantry la 
saving the Princess Margaret from drown- 
ing. The young lady's part in tne exploit 
was hardly less creditable than that of he^ 
rescuer, she clinging fast to his stoutly 
buckled girdle while he swam with her to 
the shore. 

The old motto may well have been recalled 
by the Countess of Rothes, a descendant of th« 
brave Leslie, who. in the terrible Titanic dis- 
aster, first took the tiller of the lifeboat she 
was in, and later pulled an oar for three 
hours in agonizing pursuit of the slowly re- 
ceding lights of a distant vessel. 

The legend is one for all of us to write 
Indelibly in the memory and in th*" will. 
Whenever life comes to a crisis, when cour- 
age burns low, when foundations seem slip- 
ping from beneath us, it is time to bring the 
words to full con.<?ciousnes3 and to respond to 
their ringing challenge. 

There are some things of which no mortal 
should ever let go who wishes to maintain 
his serenity — we had almost said ills sanity. 
Losing them, he Is in sorry straits indeed. 
Think, for example, of that great trilogy of 
graces named by a mighty Christian thinker 
of long ago. "And now abideth." says St. 
Paul, "fHilh, hope, love, these three." Be- 
cause they abide, these are realities to tie to. 

He is lost who ceases to look out upon life 
with a heart of faith. To lose grip on the 
doctrine of Divine Providence is a tragic 
loss. Nothing so sap.s a man's courage, when 
confronted with the world's problems, as 
skepticism. The dismal confession of Ernest 
Renan, written after he had abandoned re- 
ligious faith, is appropriate for anyone under 
like conditions. .Says the gifted Frenchman: 
"Since Christianity is not true to me. nothing 
interests me or appears worth my attention.'* 
Unbelief everywhere and always is a brief 
for pessimism. Whatever difflcultios stand 
in the way. let one cleave to faith. That is 
to walk through life on the sunny side of the 
road and to discover, even in the midst of 
trial, the secret of a great peace. 

Hope is a second spiritual fact of which 
one may strive not to lose grip. No "fell 
clutch of circumstance" can conquer one who 
clings to hope. It is a beacon light gleaming 
across the stormiest sea. In one of his nio.'»t 
eloquent orations Daniel Webster speaks of 
the hope that animated Columbus and held 
him to his course across uncharted wastes. 
A touching and pathetic scene it was, indeed, 
when the discoverer stood on the deck of his 
shattered little caravel, "straining westward 
his anxious and eager eyes till Heaven at 
last granted him a moment of rapture an-l 
ecstasy in blessing his vision with a si^ht of 
the unknown world." Aren't we glad that 
the intrepid sailor held on to hope? 

Third, and supreme, in the immortal trilogy 
stands love. It is what Drummond called it: 
"The Greatest Thing in the World." It i.s th© 
philosopher's stone that transmute.s all the 
baser elenitrnts of our human nature into 
gold. No one can meet ultimate loss who 
clings to love. He carries his riches safe 
within. Van Dyke comes to the hoart of the 
matter in the hymn: 

Who looks to heaven alone to save hi.s soul 
May keep the path but will not reach the 

But he who walks In love may wander far 
And God will bring hi<n where the blessed

Thieves Don't Believe in Visiting Cards. 

CHEATS and swindlers keep out of the public eye. They can't operate after 
they are recognized. Their success depends upon the ability to stay out of 
sight. Substitutors and adulterators, quality skimpers, sweaters and other 
members of the business underworld do not believe in advertising. 

Only an honest man and an honest product dare to bear a name in the open. 
When a manufacturer adds a trademark to his goods, he bets the consumer 
that they are right. When he stamps that mark in printers' Ink and impresses It 
on the country, he bets that they are better than unadvertised brands. 

Advertising is a step further than money '§ worth— it's money's worth plus 
g\iarantee. It's the detective force of retailing-— it arrests dishonesty. 

Widely known men and articles can't misbehave. Everybody talks about them. 
Advertised goods must maintain their character. They can't escape criticism. 

Crooked merchants and makers avoid publicity for the same reason that a thief 
doesn't leave a visiting card. 


When money h the latchkey, inaincerity is host. 


All men have natural weaknesses, just as all metals are cheapened by their slag. 
Only the crucible can refine strength. The most vital of all educations is that which 
subtracts folly from force and tells us what we must not do.

'The Low Brow on Olympus'^ 


ON the sands of Armenia (or somewhere quite near, 
We scholars don't hope to make everything dear, 
Tradition must therefore supply the vague note) 
A lady named Dido decided to vote, 
And forming a feminist party, selected 
The throne for her job, and was duly elected. 
(The reason's unlmown and has long been a mystery— 
The page that contains it is torn out of history), 
But, having achieved her ambition, they say, 
She was far from content — ^women have been that way— 
And, purchasing passage upon a swell liner. 
Set sail from her queendom in far Asia Minor. 
(I can't guarantee that this statement is true, 
But since no one can prove that I'm wrong, it will do.) 
In time she arrived at a spot on the sands 
Where the principal hotel of Tunis ^.^yv: stands; 
-If not there, 'twas midway 'twixt Tangier and Cairo— 
**I'll prove that a lady king isn't a tyro," 
She remarked to her court and proceeded to plan 
A city to shame all the efforts of man. 

But it chanced that the beach front she chose for a site 

Was already possessed by a chieftain of might. ^^ 

**This skirt for a neighbor— nix— no— I don't thmk, 

He remarked to a follower— passing the wink. 

And, being a person of some little wit, 

He framed a neat joke on Dido— and she bit. 

** Your highness, accept as a gift, from my hand, 

For the site of your city as much of this land 

As a bull's hide will cover— don't thank me, I pray— 

I'm just in a generous humor today." 

She heard a maid snicker, she heard a groom jeer, 
And plainly beheld more than one covert leer; 
An indiscreet page gave a hoot and cried ''Stung I" 
(He was afterward beautifully quartered and hung.) 
''What a break!" cried her rivals. "She*S failed in her 

Tonight we'll get busy and breed opposition. 
The moment is here to upset Dido's rule. ^^ 

Womanlike, given rope, she has played the blamed fool. 

But faster than plotter could knit at his net 
The queen's mind has acted: the problem is met. 
The throng presses forward and hangs on hor lips. 
"It's a cinchi" she exclaims. '*Cut the hide into strips.'* 
And by sunrise her face is a playground of smiles, 
For, pieced-out, the bull's hide has covered ten miles. 

Moral X 

Dear ladies, who hunger for power and plan 
For the day when you, too, hope to rule over man, 
Remember the secret of Queen Dido's pull 
And leani as she did how to handle the bull. 


"These Are Mine Own People. 

OUT yonder, Death in khaki sits wearily at an 
adding machine tapping his tally— 
At home, the women and the elders stand fear- 
fully before the daily lists and learn the woi-st at once^ 

But for our expatriate neighbors there is no post* 
Ing of the fatal numbers. 

Every battle wounds them afresh with its uncer- 
tainties—their dead die a hundred times. 

While their eyes pace the vague news lines, im- 
agination turns the huddled heaps and races from 
stretcher to hospital, searching for familiar faces. 

Daily they gamble in hope and doubt and feai^ 
fully await the long delayed mails. 

Months pass until they learn that brother or father 
was a coin in the price of this victory or that defeat. 

Whether right or wrong, the cause is the Mother- 
land's, the devastated villages their birthplaces. 

American citizens, still they cannot alienate mem- 

They brought themselves, but they could not take 

the past of their hearts along. 

We may reason, and fairly, that their first duty 
is now to the land to which they have sworn allegiance. 
But reason cannot still the urge of instinct. 

The choice was theirs; we did not bid them come. 

They are oathbound sons of the Republic, blood 
brothers to every native bom, pledged to loyalty. And 
they will serve when called. 

But their own are out there across the miles- 
bone of their bone is splendidly dying and piteousl/^ 


They suffer. Let us suffer their outbursts under- 
standingly. We hold opinions— they hold gi-iefs.

The Greatest Skips of the West Will Be Entered 
in Various Events; Efforts Being Made to In- 
duce Bob Dunbar to Play in the International; 
Duluth Business Men and Merchants Should 
Co-operate With Curling Officers. 


XE week from Monday the Northwestern Curling association's an- 
nual bonspiel will be offering Duluth congenial companionship. The 
largest and in many respects the most novel curling spiel staged in 
the United States, the twenty-third annual meeting of the associa- 
tion promises to eclipse former efforts and set a lurid pace for fu- j dV. GineVpTe

territory included by the association is not confined to the Northwest, for | 
this year it is rather certain that curlers will come from the tier of Eastern H. B. Harold.«« 
states, with the possibility that the extreme East will be represented by dev- Charles West 
otees of the ancient Scotch game. 

Secretary F. \V. Hargreaves of the association has already been assured 
that most of the prominent skips of last year's spiel will be here. 

Rcedal and Parkinson of Phillips. Wis., yesterday mailed in their en- 
trance cards, while Sandy McNabb of Grand Rapids. Mich.. Cameron of St. 
Paul, La Batt of Minneapolis, Hastings of the same city, Rochon of Winni- 
peg and possibly Grady of the same citj', are all expected to be here- with 
strong rinks. 

Every effort is being made to induce Bob Dunbar of St. Paul, generally 
recognized as the greatest curler in the world, to enter a rink in the Duluth 
spiel. Dunbar has not thrown a rock in a Duluth spiel for the last four years. 
This season, however, pressure is being brought to bear to coax the canny 
Scott to cme along and give the United States a strong representation in the 
International event. 

With Dunbar aligned with the American rinks it is believed that the In- 
ternational trophy could be weaned away from its present stewardship. It 
was the great curling of Mack Rochon and "Wild Bill" Carson of Winnipeg in 
the spiel of last year that took the coveted cup across the international line. 
With the great Bob Dunbar as an anchor on the American team the chances 

would favor the Uncle Sam crowd in the big midweek event of the spiel

Grand Fork.=!. N. D., Jan. 8. — (.Special 

to The Herald.) — Dr. G. J. Sweetland, 

former coach of the University of 

North Dakota football team, may suc- 

It is because of this inagnifi- | ^ eed Gil Dobie as coach at the Uni- 

I veraity of Washington, accoidlng to 
advices received In Grand Foik.«? by 
friends of the former Dakota coach. 

If Sweetland is chosen and there is 
a very well defined sentiment in the 
Wa.shingion institution in his favoi-, 
the Western University will have had 
the services of two former Dakota 
coaches — for Dobie also was at one 
time located in North Dakota, coach- 
ing the Aggies. 

Sweetland left the University of 
North Dakota in 1908. going to Will- 
amette college, a small school in Ore- 
gon. He was successful there, and 
shortly afterwards went to Hobert 
college, where he has been even more 
successful. It is because of Sweet- 
land's record In those two colleges that 
the Washington authorities have been 
attached to him. 

As coach of the University of North 
Dakota football team, Sweetland at- 
tained no little distinction, and it was 
a team developed by him that gave 
the I'niversity of Wisconsin a nighty 
tight squeeze, the Badgers beating 
North Dakota by a lone touchdown, 
gained in the last few minutes of play. 

campaign. Duluth receives more ad- 
vertising from the big spiel than any 
oilier winter event, and it should also 
be mentioned that the annual North- 
westv^rn bonspiel brings to Duluth 
hundreds of visitors. 

Not only is Duluth situated right in 
the heart of the greatest curling coun- 
try in the United States, but it pos- 
se^s^•s in the mammoth curling club 
structure the finest club of its kind 
in the entire country. The curling 
club is a credit to Duluth, a munic- 
ipal asset, and an institution that has 
brought heaps of laudatory comment 
down on the heads of the hc-me citi 

cent club house and because of the 
fact that Duluth is in happy posses- 
sion oi a lot <^f sportsmen of the big 
an«l broad type, that this city has 
coriic to be looked upon as the home 
of the Northwestern bonspiel. 

A citj- is made a real, live and pro- 
gressive city and a more desirable 
place wherein to dwell by the fact 
that it annually plays host to events 
of the delightful character of the big 
spiel. The Northwestern Bonspiel 
brings to Duluth a crowd of fine men, 
big. br'-ad and thoroughly genial men, 
whose \ery presence proves a sort of 
inspiration, takes the average citizen 
out of his round of everyday life, and 
leaves the city, better for their com- 

rhe Northwestern spiel advertises 
Duluth far and near: its results are 
chronicled in every city in the United 
States, and the good time provided i 
for those coming to the spiel as a i 
rule sends everj- curler and every ; 
visit«-'r home loudly chanting the 
praises of the Zenith city. 

Business and professional men of 
Duluth, even though they have never 
thrown a rock or witnessed a curling 
game, can do much to enhance the 
success of the spiel. The entire bur- 
den of making this big annual event 
a thorough success should not be per- 
mitted to rest upon the shoulders of 
those intimately connected with the 
runnin'^ of the spiel. Business men 
and merchants should willingly co- 
operate with the association officers 
and tifficers of the Duluth Curling 
club to make the bonspiel of 1916 one 
that will crane its proud head above 
the eminence achieved by past spiels, 
and thus indelibly stamp the spirit of 
Duluth soirit and progressiveness up- 
on the mind of every visitor and every 
outside curler. 

There have been twenty-two spiels 
held in the pa"<t. the majority of them 
staged here in Duluth. and practically 
all of them have been great curling 
events. It is the desire of the offi- 
cers of the Northwestern Curling as- 
sociation to make the bonspiel of this 
year one of the greatest in the history 
of the association, and to accomplish

The Nebraska Farmer Is as Innocent and Unas-^i 
suming as a New Hired Girl, Yet Has More Con- 
fidence Than Gotch or Hackenschmidt Ever Pos- 
sessed — Young Joe Is One Honest Wrestler. 


Once there was a blase city man who 
Jaunted to the country and became 
wildly enraptured with rural simplic- 
ity, sort of enthusiastically dippy, in 
fact, over the naive frankness and 
naturalness of those who live in close 
commune with old Dame Nature. 

Spending an afternoon with Joe 

Stecher <.Joe says that's the correct 

way to spell his name even if all his 

printing spells it Stecker) is a wholly 

refreshing experience to any eport 

writer who as part of his professional 

duties has mingled with some of the 

greatest athletes of all time. Young 

Joe Stecher is a positive physical 

freak, yet possesses a mind so simple 
and so frank as to cause one to stop 
and ponder deeply. 

J. F. Hetrnanek. Steoher's manager, 
was seated in a big lounging chair, 
smoking a thick cigar country style. 
Joe Steelier was stretched out in an- 
other chair with those wonderfully 
long and powerful legs wrapped non- 
chalantly around the lower rungs. 
Tony .Stecher, Joe's trainer, was sitting 
on the bed. 

"Honestly now." we started, "do you 
think, Hetrnanek, that Joe can beat 
Gotch? Give ii to us straight!"

How Stecher Started. 

Few persons outside of .\ebrask* 
know that Tony Stecher, Joes traint-r, 
is one of the greatest wrestlers in th« 
world. Joe has usurped the place In 
the sun that might possibly ha\e been 
occupied by Tony. 

"You see," said Hetrnanek, "Tony was 
the wrestler of the family. Tony ia 
older than Joe; there's one boy in be- 
tween them, and he is a gradviate ot 
the United States naval academy of 
Annapolis. Well, Tony would gu out 
around Nebraska and throw all the 
tough guya. He had to have someoiia 
to wrestle with, so picked on Joe. Tony, 
used to beat up Joe something shame- 
ful. Then Joe got so good he could 
beat Tony and we started sending him 
out to beat the real toush one.<- — and 
he always did. 

"The boys around Freemount, Neb., 
were always willing to risk their mon- 
ey on Joe, that is, after he begun to 
beat them all. Some Omaha splits 
I heard that the country Jakes w<uild 
, drop their roll on Joe, so they s» nt

Second Time. 

New York, Jan. 8. — Frank Moran of 
Pittsburgh knocked out Jim Coffey, 
the Dublin giant, in the ninth round 
of their ten-round match at Madison 
Square garden last night. 

This was Moran's second victory over 
Coffey in twelve weeks, the first fight 
ending in three rounds. Last nlglit, 
however, Coffey showed much improve- 
ment, and it was not until the eighth 
round that Morau's terrific smashes 
showed any effect. 

Coffey was knocked down four times 
In the ninth round, in each instance re- 
maining on the mat for nine seconds. 
The last time Moran almost drove him 
through the ropes, but he managed to 
get up within the time. Hie seconds

During the first seven rounds Coffey 
was completely master of the situa- 
tion and It looked as if he would win 
on points. Moran tried vainly to land 
on him, but missed many times and 
each time Coffey puliished him severe- 
ly with heavy uppercuts. When Mo-

Joe's smile started easily and then 
expanded, showing the even white 
teeth. He looked at his big hands, 
which are still marked by country tan, 
and then smiled in a sort of embar- 
rassed way. 

"I can beat him," he said, and there 
was no more traca of braggadocio in 
the remark than If you were to say 
that you could keep a date.

Here Hetrnanek cut in. 

"You ask if Joe isn't too young to 
meet Mahmout," he began. "I don't 
think so. 1 saw the receipt for the 
money sent to Europe that is to bring 
the Bulgarian over here, and we have 
already given our consent to wrestle 
him. Sure, we think we can beat Mah- 
mout, but even if we didn't, we'd wres- 
tle him anyway." How can you beat 
that sort of confidence? 

We have interviewed Frank Gotch 
and George Hackenschmidt, both be- 
fore that last match, and neither pos- 
sessed the quiet but supreme confidence 
of this country kid, a boy scarcely out 
of his teens and a lad who has been 
off the farm but a few times until the 
past year. 

Some per.sons have said that there 
is no honesty in the wrestling game. 
There is; Joe .Stecher is so honest that 
it is an obsession with him. 

"Joe wouldn't let an opponent remain 
on the mat a minute with him, if he 
could help it." said Hetmanek. "We

"That waa one of the greatest bat- 
tles in Joe's career. Ernst gave Joe 
everything he had, and he had a K-t. 
The match was wrestled Jan. 6, 1915, 
and Joe took the first fall in one hour

Across the ring sat Cutler, a gl:'.nt 
in build, huge of torso, bulky <>f ami 
and with thighs like huge columns tf 
marble. It was preposterous to tliink 
that Stecher could even make a show- 
ing against this giant. 

An Athletic Wonder. 

Well, Stecher won. and won in so 
convincing and decisive fashion as to 
leave the followers of Cutler and evt-n 
his own Nebraska admirers gaping in 
wide-mouthed astonishment. 

Students of anatomy and followers 
of .athletics never could dope Bob 
Fitzsimmons out. Someone was al- 
ways saying that those attenuate^ 
legs of old Fitz would someday bret-.k. 
They never did. Fitzsimmons' hands 
broke first of all, because he punched 
so hard that bone and muscle couldn't 
withstand the shock. 

Likewise students of form can't for 
the life of them comprehend h<\v 
Stecher wins. We can't either, for 
that matter. But he wins, and wins 
in so decisive and so startling mt-u- 
ner as to make those who have wit- 
nessed his victory refuse to belle v* 
what their eyes have behold.

When Fitzsimmons began trainini? 
for the battle with Jack D.^mps<y, 
those who were cho.«en as his sparring' 
partners, expressed mingled cont»-nipfc 
and pity for the gangling and shuffld'g' 
man of six feet who scah^d at 154 
pounds. You know what the fr.ckled 
freak of nature did. 

Maybe lots of persons in Duluth 
didn't realize it at the time, but l«st 
Wednesday night they looked at one 
of the wonders of the present alhhilo 
age. There are two wrestlers in th<»i 
M'Orld with auth'^ntic records. Frank 
Gotch Is one and Joe Stecher is.thrt 
other. At 22 years of age Joe Sleilu r 
has wrestled sixty matches and h«^ has 
never lost a fall. 

If this almost frail appf^aring coun- 
try kid is a wonder at the tt-ndfr f^ntl 
immature age of 22 years, which is 
very young for big men, how good will 
he become? 

Let Sweeney answer that question. 

Every once in a while Nature, wlio 
is a humorist, a philosopher and a gr^vs 
Instructor all in one, produces .•some- 
thing totally unlike all previous clay 
forms. Dressmakers and first cla!-* 
bartenders often achieve much th© 
same ends" In their respective lineg. 
Joe Stecher Is Nature's latest freak, 
totally unlike anything in the past 
ages, and that's precisely the way tho 
broad girdle of fame is already draped 
about the slender waist of this iiiosC 
peculiar athlete of all time.

Nelson Dewey Quint Has 

Advantage in Basket 

Ball Game. 



Strange Baskets and Small 

Floor Prove Undoing 

of Duluth. 

Unfanilliarlty with the strange bas- 
kets and the small, slippery floor 
proved the unduins of the Central high 
school basket ball quint in its first 
S^ame of the season last niffht when 
th(- local lads journeyed ovir to Su- 
perior and lost a hard-fought contest 
to the husky Nelson-Dewy high school 
five by a score of 28 to 15. 

The game was fast and cleanly played 
up to the very last minute. The first 
half concluded 15 to 11 with the Su- 
periorites on the long- end. The play- 
ing in this period was very even and 
the Dululhians appeared to have an 
even chance. Duluth had considerablj- 
more chances at the basket than did 
their rivals, but the strangeness of the ^ 
coals could not be overcome and must 

of th«»ir shots went wild. 

Xel.'son- Dewey came back with a 
spurt in the concluding frame. The 
two teams fought very evenly for 
awhile and the game became fast and 
iniert-sting from all standpoints. To 
give all of the Duluth men a chanca 
to play in the first game Coach Ulake 
seiu in several subs. All of the men ^ 
played unexpectedly well considt ting i 
th*- small amount of practi.e that 
had Hnd Coach Blake appeartd 
well pleased with their showing. 
Even Up to Close. 

The game was very even right up] 
to the last minute when tV e Superior- i 
lies suddenly spurted and cag*'*! sev- 
eral sensational basket.s that lo>kta| 
rather fluky to the Duluthlans. This 
put the Dewey men into a h^^d wiiich 
the Red and White men could not over- 

The game started with Maggard ana | 
Mason in at forward for Duluth, (lo- 
gins at center and Rosenberg and Her- 
man.^on at guard: Bush, Kkburg, Hen- , 
rickson and Bondy were sent in by| 
Coach Blake during the latter part of; 
the game so that he would be able toi 
iret a line on the ability of tiie men.; 
Coach Blake was pleased with the 
•bowing of his men and believ..-9 that, 
they will be able to avenge their de- j 
feat if the Superiorites are brought, 
over here. ' 

Next Friday evening the Central , 
quint will play its second game when • 
thev meet the fast Denfield high school 
•g^rt'gation of West Duluth.

The pro.tpects for a championship j 
quint look very bright at Cathedral i 
high school this year. Frank Daugher- 
ty, the Duluth football Btar, has been I 
secured to do the coaching, and from \ 
«11 appearances it looks as though he , 
Is goins to put forth one of the best I 
quints that has represented the school ' 
on the hill thus far. 

A large squad appears for practice 
every night, so there will be good 
competition for the different positions. 
Thorf are but two veterans left from 
la-t's team, these being Capt. Cole 
and "s^lim" Lee. It is practically cer- 
tain that Lee will be back at center.

The schedule of the Commercial 
Basket Ball league has been completed ! 
and the first games will be played next 
Tuesday evening at the local Y. M. C. - 
' \. The preliminary round, which was j 
1 completed before Christmas, put the I 
several teams into shape and the play- 
ing from now on should be consider- 
ably better than seen before. Games 
in the prellmina-y round wore played 
on Friday evening, but in the regular 
.schedule they have been shifted to 
Tuesday evenings. 

All of the earns are evenly matched 
and some great games are looked for. 
The Kelleys won the flag last year and 
made a great record in the preliminary 
round also. The other teams have been 
strengthened, however, and the hard- 
v.'are aggregation will have to work 
hard to win again. There will be but 
four teams in the new league, the 
Northern Electrics having been 
dropped. The new league Is composed 
of the Kelleys, Northern Hardwares, 
Fenton-Dubys and the Big Duluths. 
The schedule, as arranged by Physical 
Director Olscn and the directors of the 
league, is as /ollows: .

of Uticle Jim O'Rourke so remarkable.

Thousands of Americans are already 
planning how they will go to Europe 
as soon as" the war is over that they 
may visit the historic battle fields and 
\iew the havoc that has been wrought. 

But the Xew York World's official 
French government pictures "Fighting 
in France." which will be shown at the 
Lyceum for four days beginning Sun- 
day, Jan. ?, vill give a far better idea 
than will be seen by e\ en the first of 
tiie tourists. For these official motion 
pictures will take one to the famous 

battlefields, and in the safety and ' 
silence of the theater one will be ablo , 
to see just w hat he would have been | 
able to have witnessed if he had 00- j 
cupied the dangcro'.is post of an ob-,| 
server at the front. I 

These official films were taken by 1 
order of the French general staff for { 
the purpose of historical record. Thej- 
are to be preserved in the national ' 
ar -hives of France so that future gen- ' 
erations for all time may be able to 1 
see and judge what the war was like, j 
They form an unimpeachable record. 

They were tt'ken with, that object by 
men who with the greatest gallantry 
risked their li\es -that the truth of 
these battles might beseen by all and 
live forever.

correspondent of the New York World, 
secured from the French government 
authorization to present these official 
French pictures to the Amertcan audi- 
ences, claims thjt tl ey show as noth-

About ten years ago — Just after 
Christinas in 1906, to be exact — a fra- 
gile, fair-haired slip of a girl, not yet 
17 years of age, applied for a position 
as "extra" actress at one of the three 
motion picture studios then in exist- 
ence in the whole United States. That 
studio was situated on the roof of a 
twelve-story building at 41 East Twen- 
ty-first street. New York city. It must 
have been the wish of destiny that the 
nervous little creature, who leaned far 
across the railing in asking for work, 
be engaged, for, more than any other 
she succeeded in helping to make the 
motion picture industry what it is to- 

Now, just ten years later — almost to 
a dav — this same fragile, fair-haired 
girl,^vho has gained an international 
reputation as one of the most versa- 
tile actresses that ever stepped in front 
of the camera, and has been away from 
the studio for almost two years on a 
Vvcll-earned rest, has announced her in- 
tention of lomlng back 

or indeed a man in any walk of life; . 
should retire at the zenith of his pow- 
ers before his natural energies arc 

■ abated and ere, the fires of his ambition ; 
I and achievement are burned low, leav- 
hng the battlefield of life to the young- ,. 
' er generation — that is. of course, if he ;. 
i ts in a position to do so according to ; 

■ the needs of those dependent upon him 
1 It is one of the greatest tragedies- of 
• an actor's life that frequently, if not 
! generallv, he Is forced to shoulder his 
I pack and sometimes "lag superfluous 

on the stage " long after work in other 
vlnevards would have earned for him 
an honorable retirement In competence, 
. if not luxury, for the rest of his days. 1 
i Names of great actors, some long , 
I since dead, and others not so long ago. 
;as for instance, Irving, spring to the 
'memory in this connection, and I cran- 
i not but recall that it was he who first [ 
Ipiit me in the way of getting my flrst^ 
bank balance, so far as my credit ac- ^ 
count was concerned. It was in tne 1 
days when he was appearing as Bene- , 
dick, and Ellen Terry as Beatrice in 
"Much Ado Abottt Nothing" at the ;. 
Lyceum theater, where I had the honor , 
of playing Claudlo In that notable pro- | 
ductlon. But 1 like to think that it was 1 
to my first love of painting that I owed \ 
my first bank account. Irving <;om- ^ 
missioned me to paint his beautitui ■, 
church scene In that play and proniised I 
me $750 to do what would have been 
and was a labor of love In any event^ 
It was for that reason no doubt that 1 
made the canvas and picture generally 




"Stop: Look: Listen! ' — A musical 
comedy. Music and lyrics by Irving 
Berlin, book by Harry B. Smith, staged 


I much larger than he anticipated, with , 
the result that he insisted on handing ^

was completed. I returned his checK 1 


There is no need of mentioning her • twice, but Irving was adamant even

money. Music for each program is 
especially prepared by a well known 
director and his staff an«i even the post- 
ers come In for their share of atten- 
tion under the Triangle management. 
Tony Sarg. Arthur Coney. C. B. Hall 
and James Montgomery Flagg are the 
designers of all "Triangle posters. 

<;oing.over the coming week's pro- 
gram at Rex Beautiful it is difficult 
to find another company that can com- 
pare with Triangle Fine-Arts. Sunday, 
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, "The 
Penitents," a Griffith production fea- 
turing two well known stars, will be 
shown; Thursday. Friday and Saturday 
"The Edge of the Abyss" with Mary 
Boland, John Drew's leading woman; 
Wlllard Mack and Frank Mills. Aside 
from the talented people employed, an 
expt-nditure of thousands of dollars has 
been ma<le for beautiful interiors, costly 
furnishings and excursions to scenes 
of natural beauty, and one does not 
wonder that in talking of expenses, Mr. 
Ince made the remark that to produce 
a Triangle play that wt»ulil obtain any 
degree of public support, the item of 
expense could not be < ounted less than 
$100,000. The set alone for a single 
picture in course of preparation at the 
plant near Santa Monica, Cal., has cost 
$60,000. Billie Burke is to get $40,000 
in addition <or appearing in the star 
part. Where it would be a novelty for 
half a dozen horses or a couple of hun- 
dred people to appear behind the foot- 
lij^hts. it is nothing unusual for the 
Fine-Arts film studia to use thousands. 
The expense or the danger of the un- 
dertaking does not measure in the bal- 
an<.e against the great artistic achieve- 
ments shown each week at the Rex 
Beautiful from the Fine-Arts studios.

Impression of Her. 

For 'the avowed purpose of correct- 
ing the impression which she believes 
the public has formed of her, Theda 
Bara, star of the William Fox produc- 
tion. "Destruction," at the Lyric to- 
morrow, and known to millions as "the 

vampire woman of the silent stage," is 

about to launch a newspaper campaign. 

the cost of which will run into the 

hundreds of thousands of dollars. Miss ' 

1 Bara takes exception to such phrases 

1 as, "the women with the most beautl- 

I fully wicked face in all the world," 

i "the Ishmaelite of feminity," "the tor- 

I pedo of domesticity," when lined with 

I her name. 

"Even If it takes all the money I 
I have earned," says Miss Bara, "I am 
! willing to spend it if I can alter the 
, public's opinion of me. How would 
1 you like to be despised by all your sex 
; if you were really and truly the exact 
I opposite of that type. At fixst I did 
i not mind, but now I do very much. 
I "Why, one of the critics who inter- 
) viewed me recently said, 'Her hair is 
I like the serpent locks of Medusa, her 
eyes have the cruel cunning of Lucre- 
' tla Borgia, till now the world's wick- 
edest woman, her mouth Is the mouth 
, of the sinister, scheming Delilah, and 
, her hands are those of the blood-bath- 
ing Elizabeth Bathory. who slaughtered 
i voung girls that she might bathe in 
! their blood and so retain her youth 
, and beauty.' Tell me, do I look as

At the Sunbeam. 

The new Sunbeam theater will be- 
gin a remarkable series of photoplays 
tomorrow, the first of which Is en- 
titled "Forb dden Fruit." Following 
will be run th© following, each com- 
plete In itself, but with the same re- 
curr?nt theme: "A Mother's Confes- 
sion," "Concealed Truth," "The Un- 
welcome Wife." "Sins of the Parents" 
and "A Fool's Paradise." These sub- 
jects are almost self-explanatory and 
leave little to the imagination as to 
the material handled. All of these pic- 
tures handle a red-blooded subject in 
a vital manner and undoubtedly will 
prove of wide interest to theater- 
goers of Duluth. These films, while 
being along the same line as "Dam- 
aged Goods," are at the same time less 
objectionable to those who dlellke sub- 
jects of that character. Each number 
will be in five reels and feature Ev- 
erett Butte rfield and Paula Shay. 

For Monday and Tuesday there will 
be another installment of "The Mys- 
teries of the Grand Hotel." with the 
fascinating detective story which has 
been running for some time. The 
Pathe News will show news events of 
world- wi3e interest and the latest 
fashions for women. 

Wednesday and Thursday Blanche 
Sweet will be seen In the Griffith fea- 
ture film, "The Painted Lady. "Nan o' 
the Backwoods," a three-reel Lubln, 
will be seen with Valentine Grant in 
the title role. 

For Friday and Saturday the feature 
will be "Bondwomen," featuring 
Maude Fealy, which treats modern do- 
mestic subjects in an up-to-date man- 
ner. This is one of Kleine-Edlson 
features and should prove to be of un- 
usual interest. 


who has followed the growth of the 
moving picture, knows that reference 
Is made to the charming screen star, 
Florence Lawrence. 

When Florence Lawrence left film- 
dom she weiit on a trip to EUiope. She 
visited England, France. Germany, Rus- 
sia, Norway. Sweden, DenmJark, after- 
wards going to Egypt, India, and the 
Far East. Finding that traveling of- 
fered her about as many opportunities 
for resting as an advance man for a 
circus has. she returned to her large 
estate near Westwood, N. J., and there 
found real enjoyment in 
asparagus, roses a 
then she has spent 
on her fifty-acre 
ued at a thousand dollars an acre

Saturday jKlffht, Jan. 8, "Rigoletto." 

A grand opera in three acts. Scene 
and period: Mantua and vicinity; Six- 
teenth century. 


The story tells of the gay and un- 
principled duke of Mantua, who is as- 
sisted in his crimes by his jester, Rig- 
oletto, a hunchback. The father of 
one of the duke's victims is mocked 
by Rigoletto and launches upon him a 
father's awful curse, which stuns and 
eobers the Jester, as he, too, has a 
daughter, Gilda. unknown to the court. 

On his way home Rigoletto meets a 
professional assassin, Sparafuclle, who 
offers, for a price, to kill any enemy 
he may have. Rigoletto says he may 
need him later. The duke. In the guise 
of a young student, has already met 
Gilda, not knowing who she Is, and 
the ycung girl has fallen in love with 
him. When Rigoletto has left the 
house the duke's courtiers abduct 
Gild I and tfke her to the palace. The 
father's rage Is terrible to witness and 
he goes to the palace, but too late to 
save his daughter. She pleads for the 
duke's life, but Rigoletto swears to 
kill him, and, arranging with the as- 
sassin, Sparafuclle, to accomplish the 
deed. The duke is lured to a lonely 
inn by Sparafucile's attractive sister, 
Maddalena, and is about to be mur- 
dered when Maddalena, who has 
take.n a fancy to him, begs 
for his life. Sparafuclle consents 
provided a substitute should happen 
clong' before midnight. 

Gilda, who Rigoletto had brought 
hither (disguised in male attire), 
In order that she might witness the 
fickleness of her lover, has been listen- 
ing to the conversation and now re- 
solves to tave the duke's life at the 
cost of her own. She enters the hut, is 
stabbed by Sparafuclle, who delivers 
the body to Rigoletto according to 
agreement. Rigoletto is about to cast 
the body into the river when he hears 
the duke's voice in the distance. The 
wretched man opens the sack, sees his 
daughter and falls sen_seless across her

It is a common thing for colds to go 
through an entire family. This is 
usually the result of carelessness in 
coming too closely in contact with the 
sick or handling articles that have 
been Infected by the patient. If the 
patient can remain In twd a well-ven- 
tilated room and the discharges from 
the nose and throat are properly dis- 
posed of. there Is little or no danger 
of transinlttting a cold to other mem- 
bers of the family, and as a rule this 
greatly reduces the chance of becom- 
ing very 111 and saves time in the end. 
It is well to use cheese cloth or paper 
in place of ordinarj- handkerchiefs be- 
cause these may be burned after use. 

If the usual symptoms of colds are 
aggravated in character, a physician 
should be sent for Immediately, as the 
line between the severe cold on the 
chest and pneumonia is delicately 
drawn. If a cold is permitted to hang 
on it easllv becomes a predisposing 
factor to more serious ailments, tuber- 
culosis in particular.

Previous to this* play Jerome was

"Women are so willful, and you kind 
women are the worst of all.** 

"You are young enough not to have

enough to have learnt pity*." 

"Nothing, it seems to me, is more

"The love of the young for the young 
—it is the beglnnhig of life. But the

"Amusing indeed have been the vari- 
ous impressions that have prevailed 
throughout the country in regard to 
moonlight schools." writes Cora Wil- 
son Stewart, founder of the famous 
moonlight schools of Kentucky. "Some 
have imagined them to be schools 
where children studied and played and 
scampered on thia green like fairies In 
the moonlight. Others have believed 
them to be Ideal courting schools, 
where lovers strplled arm in arm, 
quoted poetrj', and told th^i old, old 
story by the Ught of a bewitching 
moon. Others have speculated upon 
there being schools where moonshiners, 
youthful aud agedt were instructed in 
the most scientlflc methods of extract- 
ing the Juice fromthe corn, and, at the 
same time, the most secretive, to pre- 
vent government Interference." 

What 1Mo«nJt8rfct S4*li*«ls Are. 
It was in the obscure position of 
county superintendent of Rowan coun- 
ty, that Mrs. Stewart began four years 
ago the work that has carried the al- 
phabet and spelling book into the 
darkest corners of her state. Today 
she Is piesidojit of the Kentucky illit- 
eracy commission, author of Country 
Life Readers, and has the satisfaction 
of seeing her work copied in many oth- 
er states. How that work began and 
what it hag meant to the backward 
thousands of her state she herself tells: 
"When I was superintendent of Ro- 
wan county schools, 1 served as sec- 
retary to a number of Illiterate folk 
— a mistaken kirdaess. I ought to 
have been teaching them to read and 
write. Among these folk was a wom- 
an whose childrep had grown up with- 
out education, ♦'♦xoept one daughter, 
who had had Ihnited schooling. She 
had gone to Chicago, and there had 
profited by that one advance at least 
which the city possesses over the rural 
district, the night school. Her letters 
were the only source of joy that came 
into that aged mother's life, and the 
drafts which tbey contained were the 
onlv means of relieving her necessities. 
"Often she brought the daughter's 
letters over the hill, seven miles, to 
the county seafc, for Me to read and 
answer for her. After an absence of 
some six weeks, she came in one 
morning fondling, a Jetter. I anticipat- 
ed her mission* and said. 'A letter 
from your daughter? Shall I read and 
an.swer it for you'." ,^ , 

"Witb dignity and peide. she replied: 
'I kin answer itjer myself— I've larned 
to read and w.riflM 

The?W<n* B*Kla«. 
"In amazemlmt I qu^'stionfd her, and 
this is the stfej ibe told: 'Sometimes 
I couldn't gtit»3ei here to see you and 
the "cricks" meOim be up between me 
and the nelgf^RS, or the neighbors 
would be awaf from home, and I would 
not get a lettevyivad and answered 
for three or fou#days: and. an>-way. 
it jist seeme* fifce thar wuz a wall 
'twixt Jane and me all the time, and I 
wanted to read w'^h my own eyes what 
she had writ Mmrf her own hand. -So I 
went to a store 'fcnd I bought me a 
speller, and I sot up at night till mid- 
night, aud aometime* till daylt«ht — 

S9Ji 9^-- ■ ^- 

and I learned to read and write.' 

"Incidents like this led directly to 
the establishment of the moonlight 
.'schools. The public school teachers of 
. the county were called together. The 
fact that there were 1,152 men and 
women whom the schools of the past 
had left behind was dwelt upon. The 
teachers were asked to volunteer for 
night-school service, to open their 
schools on moonlit evenings — to give 
these people a chance. This they 
cheerfully agreed to do, and on Labor 
day, Sept. 4. 1911, these teachers cele- 
brated by visiting every farmhouse and 
every hotel, inviting people of all 
classes to attend the moonlight schools 
which were to open their sessions the 
next evening. 

"These country folk had all the ex- 
cuses that any toil-worn people ever 
had. There were rugged roads to 
travel, high hills to climb, streams 
without bridges to cross, children to 
lead, and babes to carry; but they were 
not seeking excuses, they were seek- 
ing knowledge. And so they came. 
They came, some singly and alone: 
they came hurrying in groups; they 
came traveling for miles; they came 
carrying babes in arms: they canio 
bent with age and leaning on canes; 
they came 1.200 strong. 

"Dnty so soon tires; love goes all th& 

"The business of art is to reveal the 
beauty underlying all things." 

"It is a great privilege to be deemed 
worthy to suffer." 

"It is the thoughts of youth that 
shall one day make the world young." 

"This Is what we will tell to the 
j'oung men — that the fear that keeps 
men little is the fear of being great." 

"Ah, you have learnt it— that all the 
Ijest fun in life Is giving!" ' 

"Love? She is a woman. And all 
men may she love, save one. With all 
men may she dwell, save one; with all 
men save the coward. It Is not pov- 
erty; it is the fear of poverty that 
drives out love." % 

*'Leave takings are but wasted sad- 
ness. Goodby! I also am a servant. I 
have my work." 

and of several other prosperous coun- 

"Could there be more valiant and 
heroic service to humanity than the 
stamping out of illiteracy, the most 

insidious foe of the nation?"

Grand Forks, N. D., Jan. 8.— (Special 
to The Herald.) — Municipal elections 
In North Dakota will be held several 
weeks earlier than usual this year, 
for they will be held in conjunction 
with the presidential priioary election 
March 21. , ' 

In Grand Forks, the term of James 
A. D'nnie ss tn.Tyu expires this year. 
He will be a candidate for rc-ekctlon, 
and it is llk-ly that he will be op- 
posed by C. A. Sorlie, who two years 
ago was defeated by him. 

Oae for Everyone." I 

"In March, 1913, the teachers of Ro- j 
wan county met in the office of the '• 
countv superintendent and declared : 
their "determination to wipe Illiteracy ; 
out of that county that year. Each 
teacher was given a list of the illit- ; 
erates in her district when she opened ■ 
her day school. She called on these 
people and cultivated their acquaint- 
ance before the moonlight schools be- 
gan their .sessions. 'One for everyone. ' ■ 
was the slogan which brought into 
service doctors, ministers, stenogra- 
phers, <' nd .any ether who would seek 
and teach a pupil. 

■ "We tried, by every means, fair and 
foul, to get lUfteracy out of the coun- 
ty to the last Individual. At the ciosi- 
of the third session, we had but a 
straggling few who could not read 
and write — twenty-three in all, mainly 
defectives, invalids and the blind. 

"Meanwhile, th« moonlight school.'^ 
had been extended to twenty-five other 
counties in the state. The governor of 
Kentucky, seeing the determined war- 
fare which was being waged against 
illiteracy, urged in his message to tho 
legislature that an Illiteracy commis- 
sion be created to drive illiteracy from 
the stale. The measure creating this 
commission passed the legislature of 
1914 without a dissenting vote. The 
commission is directing the statewide 
campaign to remove illiteracy from 
Kentucky by the time the census of 
1920 is taken. 

"The moonlight school curriculum 
embraces more than reading and writ- 
ing. It includes arithmetic, history, 
gc'ography. civics, agriculture, horti- 
culture, home economics and road 
building. Moonlight schools are con- 
ducted in seventeen states, Oklahoma, 
Alabama and North Carolina follow- 
ing closelv Kentucky's lead. 

"'There are 5.516.163 illiterates In

Minneapolis, Minn.. Jan. 8.— (Special 
to The Herald.) — After nearly thre« 
weeks of vacation the students of th» 
University of Minnesota have again re- 
turned to earnest work In preparation 
for the semester examinations, which 
are only three weeks away. This is th« 
time of year when every one takes hla 
studies seriously and many there ar» 
who repent of evenings thoughtlessly 
wasted and golden hours dissipated. 
The midnight oil Is being lavishly con- 
sumed, old note books are being re- 
surrected and placed in order, the dust 
is blown from "uncracked" text booka, 
and examination files for many year* 
back are eagerly fingered, tivery on» 
is a "grind" these days. 

Employment Burrau a Sacee««. 
The university employment bureau 
has Just issued its report for the first 
semester. The figures are very en- 
couraging and show to great aavaut- 
age in comparison with tne reports of 
other university bureaus throughout 
the L^nlted States. Cornell alone ap- 
proaches the University of Minnesot« in 
point of positions secured for its stu- 
dents and for the amount earned 
through these positions. During th« 
first semester 445 students have been 
given work amounting to 667 different 
Items and paying *24,639.V5. which 
amounts to an increase of $5, 500. 00 over 
last year. The report shows further, 
that positions secured for summer 
work brought In $41,069.00 to the stu- 
dents employed. These figures when 
carefully analysed amount to tjnougU 
entirely to support about S60 students. 
The advantage, however, is much 
greater than this for most students ar© 
not in a position to need complete self- 
support, but many could not attend tho 
university without partial self-support. 
The result is that probably more than 
twice 360 students are enabled to study 
In th« university through the actlvtty 
of the employment bureau. 

Little Theater Opened. 
The new I.,ittle Theater, which has 
been so often delayed, was finally 
opened on Thursday by the famous 
actor, Cyril Maude, who spoke at ths 
chapel services on his experiences oi^ 
the stage. The building was crowded 
to the doors and many turned away 
unable to gain entrance. Mr. Maude 
related many Interesting Incidents in 
connection with his stage career and 
spoke in praise of the dramatic activ- 
ities which have Interested the univer- 
sity public for the last few years. Mr. 
Mann, the dean of tlie architectural de- 
partment, who was responsible for the 
panning and constructing of the 
theater. Prof. Richard Hruton and 
Prof. Chanj|» Skinner, who must be 
thanked for creating tlie interest 
which brought it about, and the many 
■ student organizations which worked 
diligently In its support, were all 
praised and honored by the speaker 
and tltv audience. 

^'Kindling" In ProNented. 
Following closely upon the formal 
opening of the Little Theater, the 
Masquers Dramatic club, on Friday 
evening, presented Charles Kenyon's 
play "Kindling" to a crowded house. 
De.'spite the many difficulties attendant 
upon such a production, there were few 
Haws. The scenery, constructed for the 
most part by the enginering students 
was realistic. Most of the players had 
had previous experience and took hold 
of tiie difficult parts with enthusiasm. 

Announcement was made during the 
weak that William C. Kedfield of tha 
department of commerce is to speak at 
the university soon before a special 
convocation of all tlie colleges. Cab- 
inet officers are greeted by the Univer- 
sity battery and saluted with seventeen 
shots from the three-inch guns. 

Ex-Cnngiessman Frederick C. Stev- 
ens of St. Paul spoke to the assembled 
cadet corps and field battery Thurs- 
day on the subject of "Our National 
Policy." More than fourteen hundred 
cadets heard the United States military 
policy and piactices condemned by Mr, 
Stevens, who was for many years a 
menibrr of the committee on 
military affairs, and who seemed quite 
willing to takf his share of the blame. 
He pointed out the sad effects of un- 
prepar«dness during tlie Spanish war 
and indicated the increased difficulty 
of meeting present day emergencies 
with the same inacK^quate equipment. 
He seemed to consider the nation in no 
immediate danger but believed that 
preparation was the greatest assurancs 
of safety. 

Xew IdraH In Vaudeville. 
Dale McAlpine of Duluth, who Is 
head of the sophomore vaudeville com- 
mittee, is working for an entirely new 
idea in vaudeville. The show is to bs 
strictly ahead of the limes — in every 
essential futurist. Mr. McAlpine has 
promised to unfold some new and 
pleasing ideas before the audiencs 
when the curtain rises. 

Fred Tryon of Minneapolis has been 
chosen a Rhodes scholar over Raymond 
Anderson of St. Paul, after the com- 
mittee appointed to make the selection 
had been in session for several weoka. 
These two had survived the examina- 
tions which had been given in all of 
the colleges in Minnejiota during th« 
fall and a board of the various coUego 
presidents had been appointed to 
chose between these two. Each had 
manv supporteis and the pleas for 
both" fairly deluged the judges. It was 
not until manv weeks of study that 
Mr Tryon was finally selected. Hs 
will attend Oxford university to spe- 
clalfze in economics and will begin his 
studi<*s next October. 

Harrv Davis of Duluth has Just re- 
turned "from the convention of the In- 
ternational Meno.-ah societies held at 
Philadelphia. The Mcnorah society Is 
a college organization menibe».shlp to 
which is limited to Jewish students. 
Its purpose Is "the study and advance- 
ment of Jewish ideals and culture. 
The Menorah society has branches tn 
forty-one of the leading universities of 
the countrv and Canada. Mr. Davis an- 
nounces that he has secured next 
year's convention for the University of 

Minnesota. . . „ .

Would Complete State 

Road From St. Paul to 

Winnipeg in 1917. 

Completion of the Minnesota stretch 
of <he Jefferson highw-ay from St. Paul 
to Winnipeg by the end of 1917 is pre- 
dicted by George W. Cooky, state en- 
gineer of the Minnesota highway com- I 
mi£<»lox». Letters hnve been sent out | 
by him asking all ccmmercial clubs in I 
towns, through which the prcposad I 
thi'roughfaie will paf.s, to appoint con- j 
mittces to crystallize sentiment for tho 
completicn of the rotd and to facilitate 
in every way the improvement. I'lii- 
mately it is Intended to band together 
:>11 these committets in one big or- i 
ganizatirn to push the work. 

Fower was given the Minnesota 
highway commission at the meeting in 
.\ew Orleans at which the Jefferson 
highway association was formed, to i 
select the route of the new road f rom j 
the Twin Cities to Winnipeg. Of its 
1.800 miles in 'ength between .Vew Or- 
leans and the Canadian city, 600 mil* s 
will be in Minnesota. 

The r >ad will enter the state at Al- 
bert Lea over what is known as the 
<'apital National hiehwa.v an<l proceed 
to the Twin Cities through Owatonna, 
Faribsult, N'<jrthflelu and Faruilngton. 
After <onsiderable study-, the commis- 
sion picked on the following route to 
Winnipeg: Through Osseo in Hennepi'i 
county to Anoka: to Elk River In Sher- 
burne coun*y: thence n»>rth on the cast 
side of the Miiisissippi river to Litt'o 
Falls: northwest to Staples in Todd 
county; west fcnd north tiirf>ugh \^ a- 
dena and Park Rapids to the source 
of tiie Mississippi in Itasca slate p.^rk; 
thence northeast to MernidjI 

At this point matters will be held 
in abeyance i ntil engineers have an 
oppoitunity to make .i careful exami- 
nation and pick nn advant igecus route 
to St. Vincent, where the highway will 
cf-nnect with the Canadian division. 
From Bemidji to St. Vincent there .«8 
160 miles of «jld lake bottim road. 

"The fact that we have good roads, 
built or building, to Itasca park is 
<f^pecinll.v fortunate," s;iid Mr. Cooley 
t< day. "Automobile tourists will he 
able in taking this route to ."--pe sr.nii 
of the mf>st magrniflcent scenery in the 
country as well as fretting a prlimpse 
of the heauwateis of the Father ot

A reduction of $55 in the price of the 
big $760 Overland is the startling' 
Xcw Year's announcement made by 
John X. Willys, prc^sldent of the Wil- 
lys-Overland Company of Toledo. 

This is the mod.l Avhich In the last 
si.x months has broken all sales rec- 
ords for Overland cars. Since Jun« 
more than 50,000 of them have been 
sold to people in all parts of the world. 
But in spite of the fact that it has been 
the biggest seller of the year in its 
class the Toledo concern now is able 
to offer it, with improvements, at $696. 

One of the improvements in the car 
is a new 35-horse power 4-cylinder mo- 
tor of the lalc.<»t block design. The 
cylinder heads of this type of motor 
are cast in one piece which can bo re- 
moved easily if occasion demands. 

The long w-heel base of 106 inches, 
quick detachable tires, measuringr 33 
by 4 inches all around, with non-skid 
In rr-ar. and demountable rims, are a 
few of the features that have made 
popular this low-priced Overland. 

The body is finished in a dark 
Brewster green with striping of ivory 
white. The fittings are of polished 
nickel and aluminum. Fenders and 
trimmings are black enameled. 

The same care and attention has 
been given to interior refinements. 
Tliere are large pocliets in all doors. 
The mohair top is a one-man type of 
the latest design. Its single set of 
bows permit it to be raised or lowered 
ea.^ily by one person. 

The starting and lighting system is 
of the most effective two-unit type, 
entirely separate from the Ignition, 
which permits tho simplest wiring. 
No dry batter'es are required. 

The seats are wide and roomy with 
high, comfortable backs. The deep, upholsccry compares favorably 
with that found in more expensive 
cars. The seat cushions are built in 
resilient, spiral springs that add great- 
ly to the comfort and easy r'dins 
qualities of the car. 

This car also is offered to the public 
with a two-passenger roadster body 
at $676. 

superinduced by the latter. It is this 
"crazy-quilt" pattern, of roadmaking 
which lessens the value of good road 
work in the United States so far as 
military uses are concerned. 

The Lincoln highway project wjien 
completed, will avoid this objection 
throughout the entire length of the, 
immense travel zone which it will 
traverse. Few civilians realize how in- 
adequate the great railroad systems 
of this country w»uld prove for Im- 
mediate concentratioa if large military 
forces with all tlifiiw horses, mules, 
guns, wagons, camp equipage, impe- 
dimenta and supplies. 

The availability of a highway such 
as that proposed woyld permit Its use 
by fleets of motcy^ ' trucks carrying 
supplies, the effeev of which would be 
to relieve to that- material extent the 
pressure on the railroads and permit 
the transportation of a greater num- 
ber of troops in a given time. 

Certainly the project would appeal 
to military ofXJ.cers whose studies force 
upon their attention the value of time 
in a defensive concentration. 

the direction of ^»ecuring greater room- 
iness and comfort, along with still 
further conveniences. In spite of these 
added features, however, the new four- 
cylinder seven-passenger touring car 
now sells for $845. The three-passen- 
ger roadster is priced at $825. The six- 

j cylinder seven-passenger touring car 

[ is priced at $1,050, and the three-pas- 

I senger roadster at $1,025. 

i A notable addition to the Studebaker 
line is the six-cylinder seven-passenger 
sedan model, the price of which is

Announcement has just been made of 
the new Studebaker six-cylinder and 
four-cylinder models, which are ex- 
pected here next week, by Leonard Mc- 
Namaj'a, local distributor. 

The basic design of the car shows 
no radical changes. The mechanical 
principles tliat have proved successful 
are retained intact.

Is an automobile draw^n by a burro a 
"horseless Vehicle"? 

In the year 1904. Col. D. C. Collier of 
California bought a model Ford car. 

This first car gave its owner a full 
measure of service and then the colonel 
decided that he wanted a new Ford 
with its refinements to replace the vet- 
eran which was slowing up a bit in its 
stride, so the 1904 machine was sold. 

Through fortune and misfortune it 
went, changing hands and being used 
and abused indiscriminately until 1907, 
when it was purchased by one Edmund 
.Jacobs and taken to the Idyllic village 
of Ramona in the heart of the Cali- 
fornia mountains. 

The good old Ford, excellent as its 
record had been, could find no buyer in 
its entirety, and so was dismantled. Its 
motor pumps water for one Cantello, a 
prosperous- and progressive rancher. 
The body is drawn by a burro — and the 
car remains, as from the date of its 
conception, a "horseless vehicle."

Minnesota has become one of the 
foremost states of the Union on ac- 
count of the development of its tre- 
mendous natural resources, worked out 
largely through the medium of good 
I roads. These are among the principal 
j veins and arteries of commerce. As a 
I good, vigorous circulation of the blood 
1 is essential to the health and normal 
growth and development of the human 
body, so must the great commercial 
blood vessels be properly taken care 
of, "and that duty has been and is be- 
ing performed in Minnesota. Our au- 
tomobiles, corpuscles of traffic, per- 
form an absolutely essential function 
in the movement of persons and prop- 
erty from place to place. AVe have 
given them a chance to do this work 
right. Let tiiem do their proper part,

Value of Autos Largely 

Dependent Upon Good 


(By MaJ. John F. O'Ryan, Dlvialon 
Commander X. Y. X. C>.) 

The value of a coast-to-coast high- 
way, such as the Lincoln highway, Is 
self-evident from the military point 
of view. Motor transportation has been 
developed so rapidly during the last 
few years, and there are now in use 
I in all of the states in the Union so 
large a number of commercial trucks, 
I that they constitute an Important fac* 
I tor in any problem involving the trans- 
: portation of men and supplies within 
I the continental limits of the United 
States In time of war. It may be safe- 
ly assumed that this wonderful de- 
velopment in mechanical transport has 
not reached its limit, and that the fac- 
tor of motor transportation will each 
I year have an increased value. 
i The efficiency, however, of motor 
. transportation is largely dependent 
j upon the character of the route over 
I which the vehicles operate. It is the 
[ experience of every motorist touring 
in this country, that the good roads 
over which rapid progress may be 
made with safety, are unfortunately 
! separated from other roads of like 
cliaracter by miles of wretched coun- 
try road, and that the good time made 
in traveling on the former is frequent- 
ly ncutralUtd by acciUeut and delay 

The route has been preserved by 
the Daughters of the .\merican Revo- 
lution. Avho have marked it with boul- 
ders. It will require considerable - 
working to get it in good shape, as it 
has been neglected for years. How- 
ever, there will be little grading ne- 
cessary, as it follows the ridges 
throughout its course. 

The Natchez trace, which is some- 
times referred to as the Columbian 
highway, was built in i8oi, when a 
treaty was made with the Indian na- 
tions in this section. It figured promi- 
nently in the war of 1812. and in its 
early days was considered one of the 
greatest highways in the country, and 
was used as a return route by trav- 
elers who had gone tlown to Southern 

points on the Mississippi. 

• ♦ ♦ 

One thousand miles of perfect road- 
way has been constructed by Colorado 
convicts in the last seven years. Colo- 
rado began to employ convicts on the 
roads in 1908. At first armed guards 
were used, but during the second sum- 
mer the honor system was introduced, 
and It is still in vogue. 

In 1915 the road operations were

Rome, CiR. — From the reports -re- 
ceived bv the Dixie Highway associa- 
tion to date from 60 counties out of a 
total of 162 along Its route, it is esti- 
mated, there has been expended the 
sum of $1,766,200 on the Dixie highway, 
In these counties In the past six 
months. These counties are regarded 
as average, and it is therefore calcu- 
lated that the total of $6,300,000 haa 
been expended on the Dixie highway 
since the movement was first started. 

In the fifty counties reporting to the 
association, "provisions have been made 
for spending $6,931,000 on the high- 
way. This is taken to indicate that a 
total of $20,000,000 is to be spent. The 
amount is divided by states ts follows: 
Illinois, $1,260,000; Ohio, $1,304,000; 
Tennessee, $924,000: Florida. $2,060,000; 
Indiana, $126,000; Kentucky. $765,000; 
Georgia, $161,000. 

By the end of 1916 over 300 miles 
will have been added, and the close of 
1917 will see at leaqt fone-third of the 
entire mileage a

ployment of convict labor on the atate 

highways. The department furnished 
the material and CQuipment and paid 
the workers 60 cents per day, the 
money to be held by the reformatory 
for their personal use when circum- 
stances warrant. The cost of the con- 
tract was $31,000, and as a result of 
the success of the experiment, reforma- 
tory labor is now being employed on 
the Cheshire-Waterbury road and on a 
highway in Colebiook.

Lansing, Mich. — Since the first of 
July the state highway department has 
approved the construction of 671 miles 
of state rew-ard. road in Michigan, but 
owing to the fact that the state treas- 
ury Is short of funds the department 
has been unable to reimburse the coun- 
ties for 188 miles of road. When there 
is money in the state treasury after the 
first of llie year it will be necessary to 
pay out $200,101 to the counties where 
highway construction has been ap- 
proved. During the last five months, 
291 miles of single state reward road 
have been built and the highway de- 
partment has authorized the payment 
of $265,467.

With only one county on the eastern 
section and two on the western that 
liave not begun work on their links, 
the Memphis-to-Bristol highway is the 
nearest to completion of any of the 
main routes planned for Tennessee. 
The Memphis-to-Bristol road will be 
formally opened next spring and will 
then be a wholly desirable route for 
transcontinental tourists. It will be 
part of one of the longest routes in 
America, that from Maine to Califor- 
nia, by way of the national capital 
and Virginia. Bristol is on- the line 
betwe-.n Virginia and Tennessee.

There are 2.500,000 miles of public 
highways outside of municipalities In 
the United States. On these highways 
$200,000 w-ere expended for construc- 
tion and maintenance in 1914. On 
a conservative estimate, $60,000,000 of 
this amount was Avasted. These are

Th • automobile :.^ th- rnod-rn Pj^^s- 
ure car. It was conceived by a g«nl"s 
and b..rn of a necessity to supply the 
d«>!iand of the rapidly advancing timea. 
The auto is no longer a fad, but a fix- 
ture in the social and commercial life. 
It his been the advance agent of the 
bett-r highway mov. ment and has 
nf'f-.>s.-i!tated the building up and main- 
tenan:- of the lake resorts, where the 
mind and body can seek that rest and 
contentment which often becomes 
neces.^ary in this w>rld of strenuous 
endeavor. Minnesota Is the /«*»«' '^r 
thA dutoist. Here he can find all that 

he .^eeketh. ...... j ^^.„„ 

W- h.ive one of the best road laws 
In th.> United State.s. the ao-called 
Dunn law. Under its wise provisions 
th" roads of a permanent character are 
b'Mng constructed. They are the de- 
light of the autoist. 

Alr.-adv a chain of Int^r-county 
etat^> .•••adiJ has b-en laid out. extend- 
ing l,«yO miles. The greater part or 
this chain of roads has been completed. 
W*' have the P.lack and Yellow trail

starting from Minneapolis and St. i'fu*- 
and extending through the central 
part of the state; the old D..d.l road.

In the state, with numerous jakea. 
b-autiful .scenery and the most ;pnJo> - 
able cimping grounds to be founa anj - 

ha« been accompanied by an Increase 
of 12 per cent in fatalities. 

Perhaps a more reliable compari.<»on, 
from the statistician's point of view. 
can be made between the increase in 
number of automobiles In use an.l tile 
Increase in tii'* rate per 100.000 popu- 
lation for deaths caused by them. This 
is, with a given number of 
machines in uj»e in a Riven area, the 
fatalities due to them will tend to be 
proportional to the population of that 
area. When th^ comparison Is made 
on this basis, it appears that a flve- 
year increase of TT5 per cent in num- 
ber of machines has bt-en accompanied 
by an increase" of 268 per cent — from 
1.2 to 4. J per 100,000 population — In 
the death rate resulting from automo- 
bile fatalities. Similarly, a one-year 

increase of 38 per cent in number of 
automobiles has taken place along 
with an Increase of only 10 per cent— 
from 3.9 to 4.» per 100,000 — in the death 
rate charged to_them. 

One cause of this proportional de- 
crease in the destructiveness of the 
automobile Is undoubtedly to be found 
in a reduction in average annual mile- 
age per machine; but, after due weight 
is given this factor, and a suitable 
margin is allowed for possible error 
resulting from inaccuracy in the esti- 
mated portion of the automobile statis- 
tics, the figures still appear to furnish 
ample justification for the conclusion 
that the automobile today is being 
driven with more care and more re- 
gard for public safety than it was a 
few years ago. 



Since a fev m^Hfths ago, J, J. Cole, 
president of the? 5<§<J Motor Car com- 
pany, gave expression to his 
views regarding, the standardization of 
traffic laws in *hfe3arger cities as the 
solution for present traffic problems, a 
great deal of interest has been aroused, 
both among the mtXjpr car manufactur- 
ers and owner4 |n{ bringing the plan 
into operation. I n ^. . .^ .. 

Recently at the meeting of the direc- 
tors of the National Automobile Cham- 

ber of Commerce tn Detroit. Mich., a 
special committee was appointed to in- 
vestigate the matter and recommend 
what formal action should be taken by 
the body. This committee, it is un- 
derstood, will co-op.rate wltb the va- 
rious safety first organizations over 
the country. 

How strong the trend is toward a 
total standardization of every branch 
of the motor car industry Is best 
; shown by the action recently taken 
j among the members of the Society of 
Automobile Engineers. Since Mr. Cole 
first conceived the idea of standardiz- 
ing the manufacture of motor cars and 
applied it to the operations In his fac- 
tory, the principle has been applied 
more or less by practically every 
1 American motor car builder. The en- 

[ glneers. for their part, now desire to 
\ standardize the performance of motor 
'. cars, to establish certain definite 
I standards by which to Judge a car's

.Joseph Peacha. Jr.. local Franklin 
«K.-nt gives the following tips for 
thos.-'who dtaire to put their cars up 
t'lT thf winter: 

Jack the car up and put blocks un- 
d'-r it to take the weiglPt from the 
tlre.4. then let the air nearly all out of 
the tires, leaving only enough to keep 
tbo ra.-jing and tube In shape. 

Darken the room or wrap the tires. 
or better still, take them off and put 
tHem in a dark, cool place, as light and 
heat are very injurious to rubl>«ir when 
i>"t in use. 

Dr^ln all the water from the radi- and motor, then run the motor for 
about on*f minute thoroughly to dry 
ojt the water jackets. _ *i. 

Drain all lubricating oil from the 
tnotor and wash out with coal oil; as 
outltne.l above. This will keep the 
motor from getting gummed up. 

The top win be better preserved If 
It Is left up; Just thr«w a cover over 
It for protection. 

If vou have an electric battery on 
your ■ car It should be first fully 
•thirged, th^r removed from the car 
and placed In a warm room of even 
t-^mperaturo, preferably a cellar. Most 
batt"rle.'« v/lll not freeze if left on the 
car and kept fully charged. 

If vou co*htemplate driving all win- 
ter your battery should be watched 
and tested systematically every two 
wef-ks. Be .sure and keep It filled with 
distilled water, or clean rain water 
gathered from some point where It has 
h>».l no opportunity to come In con- 
ta-t with metal. 

A^e^pt the above suggestions only 
wherein they ma.v seom to benefit you. 
Do not consider th-m a mass of auto- 
mobile complications and troublesome 
detall.=«. Run your car without worry; 
U is built to go any place in any 
n'-'-ithor. and is a much greater comfort 
in winter than In sumrrar.

Fewer Deaths Now Accord-

Says Report. 

Wa.shingrton, Jan. 8. — Is the dea-lll- 
XieaB of the autoniobile increasing or 

This question seems to be answered 
In a very conclusive manner by the bu- 
reau of the census, in making public 
some preliminary mortality »tatl3tic3 
for the year 1914, which indicate that 
during: the five years from 1909 to 1914 
the number of automobilea in u»e In 
the United States increased more than 
twice as rapidly as tlie number of fa- 
talities caused by them. 

At the close of 1909, according to 
figures compiled by the National Auto- 
mobile chamber of commerce of New 
Yoik city, from state registration re- 
ports, due allowance being made for 
duplicate registrations, the number of 
automobiles in use in the United State* 
was approximatnly 20S,"ftOO; by the close 
of 1913 it had risen to 1.270,000; and a 
year later, at the end of 1914, it was 

1,750.000. . *». ^ . 

In the meantime the number of 
deaths due to automobile accidents and 
injuries increased from 832 In the 
death -registration area in 1909, con- 
taSnin,^ 56 per cent of the population 
of the United States, to 2.623 in the 
same a-rea in 1914: and the increase 
from 1913 to 1914. for the registration 
ar»-a as constituted in 1913, then con- 
taining 65 per c^-nt of the population 
of the country, was from 2.488 to 2.795. 

Thus a five-year increase of 775 per 
cent — accepting as reliable the figures 
compiled by the National Automobile 
chamber of commerce — In number of

Incrt-ase of 315 per cent in automo-

Window trimming is ore of the mod- 
ern professions. It is no longer a hap- 
hazard incidental Job but like other 
thing.s worth while nowadays requires 
definite training to reach the 
degree of efficiency. 

The Y. M. C. A. night school has 
recognized this situation, installed a 
complete window in a class room, pro- 
vided equipment and necessary mate- 


practical course in 

rial for a practical course in this 

The class last year was very suc- 
cessful and gives promise this reason 
of even greater success. The class this 
year will be under the personal super- 
vision and Instruction of J. E. Hopkins, 
display manager for the George A. 
Gray company, who handled It last 

Duluth is the natural center for this 
part of the country and very properly 
forms the center for the training of 
men Jn these special occupations. This 
is true not only of this particular line 
but others, such as automobile work, 
oxy-acetylene cutting and welding, 
salesmanship, etc., which are some of 
the other specialized courses con- 
ducted by the Y. M. C. A. night school. 



Well-Known Business Man 
Suggests Movement to 
Meet Ultimate Problem 
Now Before Spring Paving 
of Superior and Fjrst 
Streets Is Finally Planned; 
Eastbound Cars on Su- 
perior Street and West- 
bound on First, Joining at 
Twenty-Fourth Avenue 
East and Mesaba Avenue. 

The problem which, many believe, 
Duluth must face before long, namely, 
that of providing more vehicle and 
pedestrian space on Superior street, 
down town, is treated uniquely in a j 
letter written to The Herald by John , 
F. Schleunes, a well known Duluth I 
business man. Mr. Schleunes points j 
out that both East Superior street and 
East First street are to be paved next 
spring and summer, and that if there 
Is to be any change in street railway 
routes, such as he suggests, it should 
be determined upon before that time 
so that the paving may be done ac- 

His plan, in brief, is that single 
tracks, only, should be maintained by 
the street railway company on Supe- 
rior and First struts, that on Superior 
street handling the traffic eastbound 
and that on First street, the traffic 
westbound, the two- lines joining at 
Mesaba avenue on tire western end of 
the division and at Twenty-fourth ave- 
nue east on the eastern end. 

He polnt.s out that with this sj'stem, 
nine feet of space would be gained on 
Superior street, giving mure space for 
sidewalk and more roadway besides. 
How St. Paal Solved It. 

St. Paul has had to solve the problem 
of wider streets by purchasing a 
strip from the owners, and cutting the 
fronts of buildings away, thus widen- 
ing the street at the expense of store 
and building space. Mr. Schleunes be- 
lieves that sooner or later Duluth will 
havt to face the same problem, and 
thinks his idea Is a better one than the 
plan adopted in St. Paul. His letter to 
the Open Court follows: 

"In an effort to avoid accidents due 
to the rapidly Increasing traffic on Su- 
perior street, especially at the inter- 
section of Third avenue we?t. our city 
commissioners in July established the 
safety zone and the nearside street car 
stop. Opinion seems to be divided as 
ti> the efficacy of the method; in fact, 
many believe that, in certain respects, 
the danger has been increased instead 
I of lepsened. 

I "If the growth of our city continues 
at the present rapid rate, and there Is 
every indication that it will even be 
greatly increased for many years to 
come, the inconvenience and danger 
, occa.sioned by the narrowness of Su- 
! perior street and its sidewalks will In- 
crease to such an extent that some 
, radical alterations will have to be 
made. 'The city of St. Paul recently 
I widened Robert street by purchasing 
. several feet on one side of the street 
land shortening the buildings thereon. 
; Hoping that no such extreme op costly 
I measure will be necessary here, but 
, realizing how imperative some relief is 
and that the necessity therefor will in- 
crease year by year,. I desire to sumblt 
the following plan for increasing the 
1 vehicle space on Superior street and, 
' at the same time, to add to the width 
■• of the sidewalks without Interfering 

I with private property. 
Single TrackN Onljr. 
"The plan contemplates the Install- 
I Ing of one single track in the center of 
Superior street from Mesaba avenue 
to Twenty-fourth avenue east. Instead 
of the present double track, and also 
installing a single track in the center 
of First street from Twenty-fourth 
avenue east to Mesaba avenue and 
down Mfsaba avenue to Superior street, 
and running all eastbound cars on 
Superior street and all westbound cars 
on First street. 

"With but one track in the center of 
Superior street from Mesaba avenue to 
Twenty-fourth avenue east, there 
would be nearly nine feet added to the 
space available for vehicles and slde- 
walk.s. We could thus add two feet to 
the width of each sidewalk, and we 
^oul<i fet!<) have an iocreast; of nearly 


thiee f< et in the vehicle space on each 
side of the car track. 
I "The eastbound run of all cars 
would remain the saine as at present. 
All East end. Lakeside and Woodland 
cars, westbound, would run on First 
street from Twenty-fourth avenue east 
to Mesaba avenue, thence down Mesaba 
. avenue to the double track on .Superior 

street from Mesaba avenue westward. 
1 "All Fourth street and Ninth street 
cars, westbound, would come down 
Third avenue west to the Board of 
Trade corner, turn west on First street 
to Mesaba avenue, down Mesaba ave- 
nue to Superior street and thence west. 
I "Aerial bridge cars returning from 
' the canal on their westbound run could 
I run east on Superior street to Third 
I avenue east, up Third avenue east to 
First street, and thence west; or, the 
i bridge car might run only on Lake 
1 avenue, between Superior street and 
' the canal, allowing all West Duluth 
\ cars to continue on Superior street to 
; Twenty-f(^rth avenue east, returning 
via First street.

«(IKi(»t»tllK SAYS MILLER- •► H •< i? •? •? «^. 


The Federal government will co-op- 
erate with the city of Duluth on any 
municipal grouping plan selected for 
the erection of the new city hall, ac- 
cording to a communication received 
today by The Herald from Congress- 
man Clarence B. Miller, who is now in 

"You need give yourself no uneasi- 
ness whatever over the government's 
co-operating in carrying out the 
grouping plan," writes Congressman 
Miller. "I have always argued this as 
a main reason for securing appropria- 
tions with which to purchase iand for 
the site of the Federal building. That 
is certainly a definite policy which has 
guided us ever since I have been in 

Congressman Miller also points out 
that the proposal to build the city hall 
facing a central court is included in 
the original grouping plan agreed upon 
when the courthouse was built and he 
Is certain that such a program will be 
carried out when the government 
builds the new postoffice. 

By building the city hall facing a 
central court, it is pointed out that the 
city can erect its municipal building at 
any time, there being no need of wait- 
ing until the present postoffice is re- 
moved. The erection of a city hall fac- 
ing First street would have necessi- 
tated a wait until the Federal building 
was removed and the new government 
structure completed and occupied by 
the various departments. This would 
have meant a wait of four or five 
years, it is believed. 

With the above

"Learning the proper amount of air

A program, unlike any yet presented j 
by the Matinee Musicale will be given 
at 8 o'clock Tuesday afternoon at the 
First Methodist church. It will be . 

unique in that all the numbers were i 
written by Duluth men and women. 
Two of them were composed especially 
for this occasion: Misfe Faith Helen 
Rcgers' prelude and fugue in D and 
A. F M. Custance's double quartet. 
"The Twilight Hour." 

The Matinee Musicale. which has 
given particular attention this year to 
compositions by Americans, will show 
by the "Duluth Composers day" pro- 
gram that musicians are not always 
i without honor in thf-lr own city. This 
1 is the club's first venture in "Duluth 
j Music for Duluthians." trut the prc- 
! gram, which was arranged by Mrs. 
j Bruce T«-r Bush, shows that five men 
I and women are capable of furnishing 
I a varied program of sixteen numbers. 
I As the city has other composers who 
are not represented, it is pr(*able 
that the programs would keep up to 
the high staJidard set by Tut-sday's 
program if "Duluth Cf.mposers' day 
j should become an anual afTair. 

Added interest will be given by the 
comjiosers' playing their piano com- 
positions and serving as accontpanista 
for the vocal numbers.

j At the centenary of the Norwegian 
I constitution, celebrated in Christiania 
I In the summer of 1914, public men 
I were appealed to by suffrage workers 
He has] for an expression of opinion on iho 
of nov. : consequences of giving the vote to 
.women, for it was thought such tcatl- 
mony might have an effect on the nu- 
merous American voters of Norwegian 
extraction who wert* soon to pronounce 
on the issue in sevei-il of our states. 
The answer was, writes Hanna Astrup 
Larsen In the January Yale Review, 
that the question had long since passed 
beyond the pale of discus.^sion, and a 
Norwegian statesman arguing on the 
right of women to vote would feel as, 
foolish as an American if he were to 
discourse on their right to learn to 
tead or to go about in public unveiled. 
(Less than a quarter of a century had 
elapsed between the tirst demand by a 
•few nioneers' and" the granting of po- 
litical rights tO; women; half a decade 
had sufficed to make the new order 
accepted as a mai ter of course. 

The wedding was set for the spring, 
but while Mr. How was in Webster 
Groves for a Christmas visit it was de- 
cided to hasten the date. The eere- 
niony took place at noon, W»dnesday, 
Dec 29, at the home of the bride's par- 
ents. Bev. B. E. Reed officiated In 

the presence of relatives and intimate 
friends. Miss Alfreda Prince was the 
bridesmaid and Miss Elizabeth Hawk 
played the wedding march. The bride 
wore her traveling costume of dark 
blue chiffon broadcloth trimmed with ; 
black chinchilla fur. Her corsage 
bouquet was ut Sunshine roses and , 
lilies of the valley. I

Mrs. How left for Duluth. j

Theatergoers of enly a few years 
ago will remember "little Anna Fltz- 
hugh," who appeared in aeveral pop- 
ular light operas including "The Wiz- 
ard of Gz." She was especially pop- 
ular In New York. Now Broadway will 
welcome "Anna Fitziu" in the new 
grand opera. "Goyescas," which Is to 
have its first performance at the Met- 
ropolitan opera house in a few weeks. 

Miss FitzUugh earned $30 a week in 
coniie opera. No one but Mr. Gattl and 
herself knows what she will receive 
at the Metropolitan, but It is a good 
deal more than $.^0 a performance The 
transformation of Anna and her name 
occurred after .she had married a rich 
Canadian named J. J. Harty, a resident 
of Kingston. Alter a short residence in 
Kingston. Anna developed the ambition 
to .sing In the ;»ig opera. So she went 
to Italy, where sht* changed her nam.e'a 
spelling to Fitziu because she found 
the Italians called her "Fitz-hug." It 
will be remembered that Maggie Tait 
be«ame Teyte when she went to Parl.s 
and for a like reason. Anna studied 
languages as well as music, and her 
debut was made at Rimini where she 
received S2u for her first appearance 
Now after four years she is to appear 
at the big opera house in New York — 
the ambition of every sfnger In the 
world. She was chosen for a part in 
"Goyescas" because Mme. Borl, the

Director Fred G. Bradbury has re-

some time, all of whom will appear 
with the orchestra at each of the ten 
twilight concerts to be given at the 
new arraoTy during the winter.J com- 
mencing Sunday, Jan. 23. 

1'he musicians soured are Joseph 
Chabr, oboe and English horn; Ste- 
phen Mala, contra bass, both former 
members of the Pittsburgh Symphony 
orchestra under Emil Pauer, two. sea- 
sons with the St. Paul Symphony or- 
chestra under Walter H. Kothwell, and 
the past season with Innes band at the 
Panama expo.<»ition, San Francisco, 
which engagement terminated only 
with the closing of the exposition earjy 
in December; A'Jolph Morel, violinist, 
from the Chicago Grand Opera com- 
pany; Henry Reim«»r, violinist, of the 
American Symphony orchesira. Chica- 
go; Charles Tryner, French horn, from 
the same organization, and Henry Cun-

mer member of the famous Godfrey 

band and at present with the Chicago j 
Grand Opera company, whose season I 
closes just prior to the opening of the 
Duluth opche^stra's concerts.

Wurms, tlute. formerly of the Royal 
Opera at Vienna *nd later first tlutist 
of the St. Paul Symphony orchestra. 

Mr. Gilbert will be concert master 
of the iXituth orchestra. "' 

With these musicians, all 'ftf 'whom 
have had the most rigid orchestral 
traiiring under the most noted present 
day conductors, together with the thir- 
ty local musicians, it will be seen that 
the Duluth Orbheatral association is 
sparing no pains to make the Duluth

It costs more to educate a pupil act . 
the-R. E. Denfeld high school in West j 
Duluth than In any other building in j 
the city. The cost there is $5.48 per 
month per pupil. 

Supt. R. E. Denfeld. in his monthly 
report to the board of education, gave 
an interesting report on the per capita 
cost of teaching Duluth girls and boys 
their A B C's during December. 

"As will be .seen," be commented, 
"this varies somewhat owing to the j 
salaries of teachers and substitutes re- 
quired in the several buildings. Tn 
some buildings there are more pupil.^ 
per teacho«r, w'nic'n reduces the coat." ' 

At the Rfldlsson school the per capita 
cost is $3.04, and at the Oneota it is 
$-'.35. These two lead the grade school 
list. The other schools range from 
$1.83 at the Merritt up to the cost at 
the Radisson and Oneota. which are: 
the two smallest in the elty. 

At Central high school the per cnplta 
corjt is ?4.!>9, half a dollar less than at 
the Denfeld high. 

"This estimate of per capita cost 
does not include the special instruction 
that has been given," said the super- 
intendent. "vVe are endtavoring to get 
the monthly per capita cost, and then, 
at the end of the year, compare it with 
the yearly per capita costs."

Three Stutterers and One 

Stammerer Have Been 


Seventeen children with defective 
speech were receiving dally Instruction 
in a special class at the Nettleton 
school, according to the first report of 
Florence B. Parker to the board of edu- 
cation last night. 

"Four children, one stammerer and 
three stutterers, have been dismissed." 
Miss Parker reported, "and all but four 
show marked improvement. Stammer- 
ing is a mental thing, and therefore 
harder to cure. The stammerer usually 
Is a grown up stutterer. 

"Because a stupid girl 'Jnst for fun' 
held a' little boy in his baby cart In 
front of an oncoming train," Miss 
Parker said, "we have three stutterers 
in Duluth schools. 

"The boy stuttered ever afterwards, 
and his two younger brothers stutter 
through imitation." 

This la the firat year that school* for 
defective children have been conducted 
in this city.

New York, Jan. 8. — .\ctlve buying of 
leading shares was resumed at the 
opening of today's market, such issues' 
as United States Steel. Anaconda Cop- 
per. American Can, Mercantile Marine 
preferred and Mexican Petroleum be- 
ing absorbed in large volume at gains 
ranging from fractions to over a point. 
Aside from New York Central and 
Rock Island rails were not exception- 
ally prominent, out showed a strong 
undertone. War stocks also added to 
yesterday's late gains, notably Air- 
brake and Lackawanna Steel. Bethle- 
hem Steel rose 10 to 440. Anglo- 
French war bonds were in further de- 
mand, rising to 95Tk. 

The further rise in quoted values 
during the early part of today's session 
was based largely on the belief of a 
speecTy solutioti of existing differences 
with Germany. Extensive short cover- 
ing accelerated the advance which was 
led by United Slates Steel although 
that fctock • made far less headway 
than such Issues as Mexican Pe- 
troleum. American Can. American 
Smoltiiig and Anaconda copper. 
Proflt-taklng followed the advance 
causing some material decllt^es. Trad- 
ing in general v/as professional ani 
fell away In the final hour. The clos- 
ing was irregular. 

Bonds were Irregular but Anglo- 
French 5s were steadily absorbed, at- 
taining the new high quotation for 
the present movement of ?5"a.

Lower Liverpool Quotations and Lacl< 
of Buying Depress Wheat. 

Chicago. Jan. 8.— Wheat declined to- 
day as a result of lower quotations 
from Liverpool and because of the 
lack of adequate export buying. Be- 
sides a fresh increase of stocks at 
Minneapolis was noted and the rail- 
road congestion East, though said to 
be improved in some respects, was still 
an almost complete barrier to fresh 
business. Selling was generally of a 
stop-loss character. After opening 's 
!& J^c to ^uc down, with May at $1.L3J>4 
to $1.25's and luly at $1.17 to $1.17 ■«, 
; the market underwent a moderate 
i further setback. 

1 Subsequently an upturn took place 
I influenced by as.sertions that sales of 
, wheat to go to the seaboard had been 
. larger than reported. The close was 
i firm, =^c to %>ii\c net higher, with 

May 51.26 and July $1.18^1. 
; Com sagged owing to the weakness 
of wheat. Bear pressure, however, was 
'not of an aggressive sort. The open- 
I ing. which ranged from a shade to =*hc 
lower, wa.-' followed by a slight addi- 
j tional decline and then a little reac- 
' tion. 

Signs of improved inquiry led after- 
ward to a rally. Predictions were made 
that receipts here would become the 
s-mallest in years. The close was

Good progress is being made in de- 
I velopment work at the properties of 
the Cactus Consolidated Mining com- 
pany In Kern county, Cal. A well- 
defined vein of antimony is reported 
to have been located on the Mammoth 
claim. It is said to be among the 
richest in the country, and ore is being 
sacked from it. At the company's Leona 
property It is estimated that gold ore 
to the value of $400,000 has been al- 
ready blocked out. Two rich ore 
chutes have been located 500 feet apart.

The Marsh Mining company is esti- 
mated to be earning between 24r8c net 
per share a month on its stock. The 
mill is reported to be handling from 
150 to 180 tons of ore a day al the 
present, and it is generally working 
up to its full capacity of 200 tons a

Paine. W*»bber & Co. had the follow- 
ing from Boston: "The local market 
was very active and strong. Stocks 
were readily taken and the supply is 
scarce. The tremendous profits that 
are being made by the producing 
mines is now being reflected in the 
shares, and they will surely sell very 
much higher. Do not let them get 
away, for the upturn is now going 
along In a rapid way."

that thev hold $163,822,260. increase

will be increased steadily. The changes 
in the smelting plant at Anaconda and 
the improvements at the Groat Falls 
Reduction work.s are nearing comple- 
tion and, beginning Feb. 1, it is ex- 
pect-»d that the couper production will 
be increased to 2»,000,000 pounds per 

There are more than 5,000 now on 
the payroll.^ at the Washoe smelter. 
During the holidays it was found nec- 
e»i?ar>' to close the Butle mines on 
Christmas und Xew Year's days and on 
the fcJundayji following each of them, 
making a shutdown of fotir days all 
told. The trouble wan that the ex- 
treme c>'ld weather resulted in the ore 
I freezing wiiile in transit from the 
I minoi to the reduction works and the 
I thawing rooms at Anaconda and Great 
I Fulls c.oiild not handle the ore as fast 
I as it came from the mines. 
. The storage hin capacity at both 
! Anaconda and Great Falli> has been in- 

I creased, however, so that trouble of 
tills kind will not interfere in the fu- 
turt; with mining uperations. The im- 
! provementa at the reduction works 
will make it possible to operate all 
! the Butte mines at practically their 
: capacity after Feb. 1. 

The capacity of the experimental 
zinc plant at Anaconda has now be<-n 
Increased so that about 60,000 pound.s 
of zinc per day of a very lilgh grade 
can be turned out. The zinc ores for 
this plant are being supplied from the

Jan. 8. — William Waldorf 

Houghton. Mich., Jan. 8.— (Special to 
The Herald.) — Allouez is continuing to 
forward 2.000 tons of rock dally to the 
two mills, which are operated by the | 

Lake Milling, Smelting * ' 

company, of which corporation it la 
part owner. Lake No. 2, formerly 
known a« Tamarack No. 2, where it 
supplies with about 600 tons one of the 
two heads, the other stamping Centen- 
nial rock and the Centennlal-Allouez, 
which mills the remainder. . The 
monthly output for November and De- 
cember was about 63,000 tons, which 
would Kive, for a year, over 11.000.- 
000 tons and would earn on a 20 -cent 
copper market at about $12.50 a share. 
This monthly tonnage figure will not 
be Increased until after the atrenuous 
winter season is over. 

Island Copper company, which holds 
on Isle Royale between 92,000 and 93.- 
000 acres, almost wholly lying on the 
mineralized area, when the weather 
permits, in the spring, will begin a 
diamond drill campaign of explora- 
tion which will be followed most llke- 
Iv by development shafts. This isl- 
and, about fifty-four miles from the 
western end of the waterway that 
passes between Houghton and Han- 
cock, permitting the passage of the 
largest lake boats through the Ke- 
weenaw peninsula, is the largest fresh 
water Island in the world, being 
about fortv miles In length. The total 
acreage Is about 125.000 and that not 
owned by this company Is mostly the 
non-mineral bearing sandstone part of 
the series. Over 82,700 acres of the 
company's lands were purchased by It 
from two Fngllsh companies, which 
did some work there prior to 1898, and 
the price paid was about $1.19 an acre. 
It is estimated to be worth two or 
three times this amount for the tim- 
ber. Other companies did some ex- 
ploratory work previous to the date 
given above and a limited but not 
profitable production of copper was 

(;ood Mine I.lkelr. 

The outcroppings are numerous and 
verv marked in many places and it Is 
thought by those familiar with the 
Island that a highly profitable mine 
can be developed. The controlling In- 
terest in the company la held by T. 
F. Cole of Duluth. who has given a 
great deal of personal attention to 
the preliminary study of the lands and 
their geological conditions. A plan 
of operation is being laid out so that 
the work can begin as early as pos- 

Wvandot's two slopes on the eighth 
level are still maintaining the excel- 
lent values encountered when they 
were first opened. The rock Is of a 
rich stamp grade carrying a little 
small mass or barrel copjJer. A third 
stope has been started on the same 
level to the southwest, but not enough 
work has been done yet to determine 
its character. This work is being done 
preparatory to a mill test. 

Michigan has now its shaft down to 
a deptli of about 300 feet. The old shaft 
was found to be bottomed 265 feet down 
and after it was ei-larged to that depth 
sinking was begun. It will be extended 
down at least to 400 feet and possibly 
further. A little copper has been met 
with now and then. Of course the 
Butler lode Is very bunchy in places 
and this siiaft is undoubtedly in one 
of the lean runs, but it changes very 
rapidly on the strike and paying 
gr.jund may appear in a short distance 
in the drift. This work was not under- 
taken to explore the Butler lode as 
much as the new ones that have been 
reveal««d by the South Lake shaft, and 
to explore any of the lodes In the 
vicinity that give any promise. How- 
ever after the Butler has shown such 
a richness at the South Lake It will 
be tested thoroughly. Then, besides, 
the successful working of this lode at 
tlie mass has brought this once dis- 
credited lode back Into favor, and the 
success is due in some measure to the 
recent improvements in mining and 
milling. Then It is likely that the re- 
sults of the experiments in leaching 
and flotation are going to be a great 
boon to these leaner lodes. 
To Extend StoplnK. 
Winona Is getting more ground avail- 
able for stoping through the gradual 
unwaterlng of the mine. The water has 
been drained out now to the thirteenth 
level which Is near the bottom, shafts 
No 1. King Philip, and No. 3. Winona, 
being down to the thirteenth level and 
No. 4. Winona, to the fifteenth. As 
there is no expense for new work, the 
present mining being confined to 
ground already opened, tlie expenditure 
is much less than formerly an»l a very 
good profit Is being made and It is 
more than likely that the profit for 
January will be greater than that of 
December. as the prlco obtained 
for the copper will be higher, accord- 
ing to present indications. 

New Arcadian Is still in the good 
ground on the 900-foot level north, 
having found it to average the best in 
the mine for about forty feet. The 
shaft is down about 125 feet, and it has 
been figured that the 1.250-foot level 
will be* arrived at and the cross-cut 
driven thr.)Ugh the lode In about eight 
weeks. A high rate of speed is being 
made In this work. The other openings 
are looking particularly good just at 
present. At the "hill" shaft, as the 
second shaft is called here, the cross- 
cut is still being carried east so as to 
pass through another lode for data to 
determine which of two or three dif- 

that six out of the eight lodes, comprls 
ing four opened' by the long cross-cut 
and known as the South lode, three 
opened by the shaft and known as the 
North lodes, and the Butler, encoun- 
tered about 800 feet north of the shaft, 
appeared to be well mineralized and to 
be each a mine in Itself, if they should 
persist for long distances as gpod as 
they are now. He further said that the 
one" lod«* that had- l>een opened for a 
long distance, No. 1 of the North 
lodes, for 900 feet, was in quality, 
abundance and uniformity somewhat 
the best of those lodes where drifts 
had been driven, and that the Butler's 
rock is striking in the great amount 
of heavy copper and its quantity of 
merchantable grades. 

Baltic's condition underground !■ 
better than at anytime duringthe last 
year, as No. 2, which is sending up 
more than otie-half of the present pro- 
duction is with depth and strike on 
the lode, keeping up its good average. 
Nob. 3 and 4 are better at the bottom, 
and No. 6, which had a good year on 
the west vein Is continuing In the good 
rock on this vein, both on the levels 
opened some time ago and those where 
drifts have been begun lately. Good 
progress has been made In sinking the 
Refining 'shafts, as in a short time No. 2 will 
! have passed through Us fourth level 
j within a year. No. 3 has already gained 
three more levels In the same lengfa 
I of time and Is on its way to the fourth, 
and No. 4 is going down to its third 
new level. No. 2 Is down to the 
twenty -seventh lev*l. No. 3 is proceed- 
ing towards the thirty-first, and No. 
4 Is below the twenty-eighth. No. B 
has exhausted its feood ground on the 
main lode and is getting about all of 
Its rock from the west rein. 

Another Teln Einconntercd. 
At this shaft another west vein has 
been encountered ' about forty feet 
further on. which had some copper on 
the footwall and later this will be 
explored bv drifting. The west vein 
haa been opened on two of the other 
shahs with fair results. It is be- 
lieved that the west vein will be 
found to bear good values at all four 

Ah'neok Is rushing Its seventh and 
eighth stamps w'lh their "wash." as 
the contraot with the Nordberg Manu- 
facturing company provides that the 
stamps shall be ready In ninety days and 
some of the Wilfley tables and Jigs 
that were Intended for the regrindlng 
mill have been diverted to the Ahmeek 
mill and are being set up. It will take 
about five to six months to get the first 
of these stamps in commission and 
by that time there will be probably 
rock enough for it, as the mill is run- 
ning a part of every Sunday now and 
No». 3 and 4, which are shipping only 
six to seven cars to the mill, will then 
be hoisting much more rock. 

Douglas Copper company will, most 
likely, in the spring or early sum- 
mer, work in conjunction with T. F. 
Cole, who will be the guiding spirit 
and who has bought recently the apex 
forty between the Allouez and Ahmeek 
properties, just above the Douglas, 
which extends almo.«it evenly with its 
eighteen "forties" across this angle, on 
the underlie of the Kearsarge lode. Mr. 
Cole purchased one-quarter Interest in 
this from R. R. Goodell when he ob- 
tained all the holdings of the latter In 
th'- district, »nd one-half interest from 
Mrs. Fanny Devereaux of Portland, 
Or. This forty is the nearest unde- 
veloped In.rd to the outcrop of the 
Kearrarge lode and carries the under- 
lie of the Calurret conglomerate and 
the Osceola amygdaloid and Allouez and 
Kearsarge conglomerates. The loca- 
tion of the Cole forty, so close to the 
good- Ahmeek and Allouez. would jus- 
tify the sinking of a vertical shaft 
to explore the mineral in the lode. 
It might be called the insurance forty 
of the lot. It is the northwest quarter 
of the northwest quarter of section 32, 
67-32, and the price paid for the Dev- 
ereaux half Interest Is said to be $4,000 
an acre. 

Parallel 4o Cole ParehaNe. 
Th^re was almost a parallel case in 
the nistory of the Calumet & Pitts- 
burg mine., owned by the Calumet & 
Arizona, when It paid quite a sum for 
the Del Norte <rlaim, because it was 
thought to be the first part of that 
grouD of claims that would give com- 
mercial values. The purchase justified 
the expenditure, aa almost the whole 
forty carried ore and its profit fur- 
nished the means for the extension of 
the shafts to a sufficient depth to 
pump out the large quantity of water 
afterwards met with there so as to 
reach ore bodies that were believed 
to exist and were developed and did 
prove very profitable. 

Superior- & Boston has passed 
through Its storm a*id stress period, 
the very same that all of the proper- 
ties. Old Dominion, Globe and others, 
have gone through, and have survived 
as very healthy, active and profitably 
producing mines. The sedementary 
strata iti that portion of (jlobe. Ariz., 
have been greatly folded and by fault- 
ing and other earth movements have 
been pushed out of their original lo- 
cations In such a way that the best 
geologists, men of international fame, 
have been puzzled to trace them. Be- 
sides the oxides and carbonates, there 
has been a barren zone before the sul- 
phides were reached. On this same vein 
to the east is the Copper Hill, a part 
of the Arizona Commercial, then the 
National, the Arizona Commercial 
proper, and next the Superior & Bos- 
ton. All of them, save the last, are 
now mining In the sulphide or have 
found them by the diamond drill be- 
low this barren zone with fine results. 
The Superior & Boston, which has the 
sulphides on the tenth level. Intends 
to push out oil the twelfth into them 
and then raise up and perhaps go 
down with winzes. Afterwards. If 
these levels show up as well as they 
have In other properties, sinking will 
be started to the fourteenth level. The 
National has arrived at such a depth 
now that it will take care of a good 
portion of the water which the Supe- 
rior & Boston had to pump. And. 
moreover, a new pump can be put at. 
the latter property for Its own water 
so that the costs can be reduced from 
13 to 6 cents. An assessment has been 
called — the last was three years ago — 
to pay for this future work, of $1 a 
share for the 283.000 shares outstand- 
ing, to be paid Feb. 7 on stock on rec- 
ord Jan. 24. George Kingdon, the su- 
perintendent of the Old Dominion, has 
taken a place on the board of directors 
and other changes w'll follow.

Mr. Connors had taken over the boats 
of the Mutual. Western and Anchor 
lines, thirty-seven boats in all, for the 
proposed merger. 

Later, news waa received from Buf- 
falo that Mr. Connors haa not com- 
pleted the organization, but says the 
matter will be settled one way or an- 
other within a week. 

That he has been working on such 
an organization la known to be a fact. 
He was in Duluth last aummer to look 
over dock facilities and package 
freight busines."? here, coming In his 
private yacht, and since then has vis- 
ited every port of consequence on the 
(Jreat Lakes with the same object in 
view. Since that time. Mr. Connors has 
been at work organizing a company 
and the impression Is at lower lake 
ports that he has his company, if not 
compietelv formed, practically so, and 
that at almost any time an announce- 
ment may be expected that he has 
merged all of the legally dissolved 
lines into one huge package freight 
carrying concern. 

With this accomplished and with the 
Port Huron & Duluth Steamship com- 
pany, hitherto the only independent 
package freight line on the lakes, ex- 
tending its run to Cleveland instead 
of having Port Huron its Eastern ter- 
minus as heretofore, it is believed that 
the lakes will not be in the dire con- 
dition predicted by the lake-and-rail 
lines through their divorcement. It 
will mean the freeing of the lakes 
from railroad dominance, with just as 
good lake service as before, and, many 
believe, better. 



Prominent Duluthians Need 

Not Answer Charge of 

Neglecting Permits. 

A two-months' old amendment to the 
building ordinance, designed to prevent 
owners of condemned buildings from 
repairing them, is Ineffective. 

That was the explanation given to- 
day by members of the city attorney's 
staff for dismissing charges against 
a. a. Hartley and Dr. I. T, Burnslde. 

The state law says that the owner of 
property condemned as a menace by 
the state tire marshal may repair It, 
pending an appeal to the district court. 
City Prosecutor Walter Gonska said. 

Duluth's ordinance, as it now stands, 
prevents the building inspector from 
issuing a permit to repair a building 
condemned by tlie fire marshal, but 
says nothing about the actual repair 

•The ordinance, to be effective, must 
read 'no permit shall be issued for the 
repair of a condemned building, and 
no repairs shall be made," " explained 
yir. Gonska. 

G. G. Hartley repaired a "tenement 
which State Fire Marshal Robert Har- 
gadine had condemned as a fire menace, 
witiiout securing a permit. 

Dr Burnslde tailed to take out a 
permit for repairs to a building at 
Twenty-fourth avenue west and Su- 
perior street, which he owns. He was 
arrested, and a hearing was postponed 
until vesterday afternoon, when tlie 
case was dismiaaed, Mr. Hartley was 
not brought into court as he was out of 
the city when police were given ""^ 
warrant. • . • 

Police -Smell Rat" When Carl Holm-

Carl Holmgren may have been des-

When the proprietor found the cash 
drawer empty and that the safe had 
been tampered with, he smelt a rat.

Fred Johnson Thought to

When is a repair not a repair? 

If J. B. Clinton, owner of the Sun- 
beam theater, 11» West Superior 
street, and his landlord, W. J. Conan of 
Milwaukee had agreed upon a solution 
of this problem, they would have 
saved attorney's fees and court costs 
and needless litigation. 

Misunderstandings of contracts and 
different interpretations of agreements 
have kept Messrs. Clinton and Conan 
In court most of the time since last 
July when the trouble between them 

Mr. Clinton Is leasing the Conan 
block at 119-121 West Superior street. 
He sublets a portion to A. Apostolakas, 
nroprietor of the Minnesota Candy 
Kitchen. Before July 1 the agreed 
rent was $600. The lease had a build- 
ing agreement incorporated in it which 
provided that after certain repairs had 
been made, the rent was to be ^SiS 

monthly. _ „ 

DlviMion •! Rental. 

First of all, Messrs. Clinton and 
Apostolakas each paid $300 rental, 
$600 In all. D. R. Long, agent fur Mr. 
Conan, refused to accept it th's way 
and the first round in court began. 
The outcome of it all was that Mr. 
Clinton agreed to pay the $600 and 
collect $300 a month from his sub- 
tenant. . ^ .„„» 

On July 1, Mr. Clinton tendered $600 
in rent, but it was refused as insuf- 
ficient.' Mr. Conan maintained that 
the repairs had been made subject to 
the agreement and demanded $833. 
Mr Clinton disputed him and refused 
to pay. The next day Mr. Conau In- 
stituted an unlawful detainer action 
against him to collect the July rent. 
In municipal court, it was decided in 
favor of Mr. Clinton. Mr. Conan later 
accepted the money. 

Then the repair work went along. 
On Aug. 1, Mr. Clinton again tendered 
5600. It was again refused. The same 
happened in September. On Sept. 3, 
another unlawful detainer action was 
Instituted in municipal court and after 
being tried before a jury for fWe day^ 
was decided in favor of Mr. Clinton. 

On Nov. 11 last, the parties got to- 
gether for another agreement. Mr. 
Conan, through his attorneys, offered 
in writing to make certain repairs if 
certain conditions were accepted by 
Mr. Clinton. It was agreeable, and the 
repairs were nearly completed when 
Mr. Conan announced that he had re- 
pudiated the agreement. 

RestmlitH Landlord. 

When a fourth unlawful detainer ac- 
tion was threatened. Mr. Clinton, 
through his attorneys. McCoy & Han- 
son, sued out an injunction temporarily 
restraining the landlord from prose- 
cuting such an action and brought an 
action in district court to determine 
the rights of the parties, asking the 
court to enforce the agreemer»ts which 
had been entered into. «, ^ ^ 

After the action, Mr. Conan filed af- 
fidavits to the effect that Mr. Clinton 
assigned Apostolakas' sub lease toi 
him as security for the rent and asked | 
for an order restraining the subtenant 
from paylnfr any rents over to Mr. 

Mr. Clinton states that he is willing 
to pay $600 but insists that the agree- 
ment "as to repairs be fully lived up to 
before he pays $833. The landlord, 
however, asks to have the $833

If Good Business Judgment 

Is Used, Profits Are 


Real Estate Exchange 

Offers Protection to 

Public and Broker. 

Wliat Some of Its Members 
Think of "Duluth 
' Dirt." 

Buy Duluih real estate, and buy it 
now, is the advice of every real estate 
aKeiii in the citv. 

Of course It is understood that one 
must use ordlnai-y good judgment and 
keep a few simple rules in mind, but 
property values are low here when 
c-ompared with values in other cities, 
and substantial profits will be made In 
the n<-xt few months, it is claimed. 

There Is not a city In the United 
States that offers euch great and 
stable advantages In real tstate as the 
city of Duluth does today, accord- 
ing to A. J. Fr(y, g'cretary of the 
Duhith exchange. With any eort 
of sane business methods, these 
conditions will not change. Puluth is 
destin«:'d to be one of the vei-y great 
cities of the L'nited States. It Is true 
that the growth of Duluth has been 
disappointing to some who have waited 
foj- years but it is thought to be now 
on rhe eve of a growth which Is only 
the beginning of what th»j future holds 
in store for it. 

"Minnesota is a very great state 
from every viewpoint." said Mr. 
Frey. "No other state Is «o 

weli prepared, if needs be, to live 
and prosper upon her individual 
products. Furthermore. Minnesota is 
but spar.«ely settled. The flnal results 
of these conditions must be steady 
and of a very wholesome character. 
Her climate and business condition 
call for sturdy and able men, and 
those are the kind who will come and 
remain. This can only mean a contina- 
fttion of the growth of Duluth. What 
is needed now— and what Duluth must 
have to make it one of the very great 
cities of the nation — is manufacturers. 
Theso will naturally follow in the 
waixt: of the steel plant. 

A City of Ifoia« Omiers. 

"Duluth is known as a city of 'home- 
owners.' The city building Inspector's 
of fee shows that in the year 1<«15 there 
were 828 new frame and brick dwell- 
ings constructed in Duluth. This is 
pi-actlcally one new dwelling for each 
1,000 of population. 

"Amona: all the commercial organiza- 
tions existing in Duluth, there is none 
whose work is more for the general 
betterment of the city than that of the 
Duluth Rf^al Estate exchange. This is 
a rather broad statement but ono 
which is believed to be absolutely true." 

The object for which this exchange 
wn<? formed as set out by A. J. Frey, 
Its yocretary, Is to Improve the condi- 
tion of the real estate profession in the 
city of Duluth by the cultivation of 
a high standard of ethics in all trans- 
actions, the promotion of a cordial 

co-operation between members of the 
exchange and the adoption and en- 
forcement of such rules and regula- 
tions as shall best protect the Inter- 
ests of dealers, owners and purchaser.-j 
of real estate. 

Prior to the year 1906 the real estate 
men in Duluth had no organization. 
Many dishonest real estate deals were 
made by unscrupulous brokers and all 
the dealers suffered by their acts. In 
1905 u number of Duluth firms got 
to.jcther, called a meeting and decided 
to form an exchange in order to put 
the business on a proper basis with the 
public and the real estate men. 

"It i? considered surprising how ig- 
norant the general public is when 
dealing in real estate. " said Mr. Frey. 
"The peculiar conditions surrounding 
' the transfer of interests in real prop- 
<rty af^ in a class by themselves,' and 
are governed by none of the laws and 
rules governing any other commodity. 
This perhaps offers a logical excuse 
why people generally know so little 
about real estate transactions." 
R^alty^ Exchange a Factor. 

The I»uluth Real E.state exchange, 
like other exchanges throughout the 
country, lays down definite rules of ac- 
tion and specifies a scale of charges 
fair to both public and broker. The 
charges are in keeping with the high- 
grade services riven. Cut rates lead 
to lack of confidence and poor service. 

The exchange has a number of 
standing comniiltes, the most import- 
ant of which are the reference and ar- 
bitration, valuation and legislative. 

Th3 arbitration committee is the 
"court" of the public and the members 
This "court" is always open to con- 
sider complaints regarding the acts of 
anv of its members. It is the policy 
of the exchange to see that the mem- 
bers of this committee are strong, 
fair-minded, compettnt and fearless 

The valuation committee is of great 
public service. The proper valuation 
of real estate is a complex problem 
and only a few men are qualified or 
competent to handle it. Only one well 
versed In the business and having in- 
timate knowledge of the growth and 
development of the city is in a posi- 
tion to pass judgment that will bear 
analyzing as to properties of consid- 
erable value. The business interests 
of the country are coming to know 
this more fully and are depending to a 
greater extent for appraisals by real 
estate exchanges. 

The legislative committee is espe- 
cially active when the legislature is in 
session. All laws effecting real estate

It is the aim of the exchange to 
carry such an Influence to its mem- 
bers that service shall become the 
watchword, and that the patron of a 
recognized real tstate firm may know 
that he will get a high grade of serv- 
ice S'ld expert judgment well worth 
the fees demanded. The real estate 
man is in a position to cover points 
in a transaction unknown and over- 
looked bv the inexperienced. He knows 
values and the conditions that enhance 
or decrease them. His expert Judg- 
ment, based upon study, experience 
and knowledge of Improvements, pros- 
pective and under way, gives him a 
rource of Information that the wise 
owner or Investor draws from.

the Duluth Real Estate exchange. 
These men are bound by the rules of 
the exchange. It is to the advantage 
of everv owner or prospective investor 
to deal" with only men who are mem- 
bers of the exchange. It is only 
through the co-operation of the public

This will work out to the mutual ben- 
efit of both the public and the honest 
real estate man. 

Rrallfy Men Optlnilntle. 
Members of the Duluth Real Estate 
exchange are optimistic in their views 
regarding the outlook for the present 
year. _ ^ 

Said J. E Cooley, president of the ex- 
change today: "I think the year 1916 
will become the banner year in the his- 
tory of Duluth as far as general pros- 
perity is concerned. Men with means, 
who for the last few years have been 
speculating in stocks and bonds, have 
come to realize that real estate, the 
ground we live on and live from, is 
the real source of all true prosperity 
and wealth, and that Duluth, with Its 
many advantages, presents the bright- 
est and most alluring prospect of any 
city within our knowledge. The mem- 
bers of the Real Estate exchange of 
Duluth are among the best and most 
progressive business men of our city. 
It is the aim and the Intent of the as- 
sociation to have only such members 
as will deal uprightly and square- j 
ly with their customers. Any deyla- | 
tlon from that rule, will,- when called | 
to the attention of the exchange, re- 
ceive prompt and careful attention to 
the end that strict justice will be done 
all parties concerned." 

Said William C. Sargent: "\^ e are 
about to see the re-^ults after years of 
anxious waiting in the actual operation 
of the mammoth steel plant and its 
giant partner, the cement works. The 
Model city, with its convenient and 
handsome residences for employes, is 
an accomplished fact. We have seen 
miles of new streets laid. Parks have 
been .stabllshed. school houses have 
been built, playgrounds installed; 
hundreds of artistic and magnificent 
residences at great cost have been and 
arc being erected, and new business 
enterprises have been started. 

"Duluth has every license to be the 
largest, most beautiful and in every 
way the best city on the Western hern- 
Isphere What will you do to help 
make it so? As I said last year, all 
you need is 'confidence.' so get busy." 
Duluth I.e.t<lM Th^m All. 
J. D. Strvker. president of Stryker, 
Manley & Buck, who is in the East, 
wrote as follows from Wilkesbarre, 

"Optimism reigns, especially <n the 
East, where business in general is 
booming and real estate values ad- 
vancing, and yet there is no place 
where the people hav..^ more reason to 
be optimistic than at Duluth — and now. 
"We have here at Duluth, not one or 
two things that cause a city to grow 
up, but practically everything com- 
bined that makes a great city; head of 
a wonderful chain of lakes, great sys- 
tem of railroads, "where rail and water 
meets," running to all points; sur- 
rounded by rich agricultural lands be- 
ing rapidly developed; manufacturing 
industries of all kinds, including the 
$20,000,000 steel pjant: cheap electrical 
power, iron mines, good water, healthy 
climate, and above all other things. Its 
greatest asset — its men. There Is no 
citv in the country the size of Duluth 
that contains as many big, strong, 
broad men — men of high character 
and fine ideals — as Duluth. and this 
makes a city where people worth 
while like to live and rear their chil- 

"These things, and there are others, 
make Duluth's growth and develop- 
ment sure and rapid and a most de- 
sirable place in which to Invest, and 
now Is the time, while prices are the 
lowest of any city of its size in the 

KxpertM Big Growth. 
A. H. Brown, vice president of 
Stryker. Manley & Buck, said: 

"The outlook for the next few years 
in Duluth is the most promising in 
th.^ history of the city. I look for a 
substantial industrial growth within 
the city and an Increased agricultural 
dev« lopment In our immediate vicinity. 
This cannot help but redound to the 
value of real estate as an Investment. 
Present prices are exceedingly low 
compared with other cities of our class. 
It Is my opinion we avIU see a con- 
siderable Increase In the prices of 
property, both Inside and outside of 
the city, and that owners of the pres- 
ent low-priced property will reap the 
reward of Increased valuation." 
Duluth'M Day at Hand. 
H. W'. Gheadle of Richardson. Day & 
Cheadle company, said: 

"Duluth has waited, watched and 
worked for the past thirty years, al- 
ways confident that Xiie advantage of 
its "location and the wealth of its nat- 

ural resources would eve:itually make 
It a center of commerce and industry. 
Today finds each of us more optimistic 
than ever with the full assurance that 
Duluth's day of prosperity Is at hand. 
"We are now entering upon the era 
of prosperity which will see Duluth at- 
tain to the commanding position to 
which it Is entitled by reason of its lo- 
cation and resources. 

"Railroad discrimination is being 
rapidly eliminated, and industries are 
finding it advaniageous, and soon will 
find it necesar yto lof^ate at the nat- 
ural center of distribution and ma- 
terials. Our tributary territory is most 
prosperous, and in that territory we 
find unbounded faith In the future of 

"Formerly it was from the East that 
Duluth received money for Investment, 
but today it is from our own prosptr- 
ous territory that we find the most 
optimism and the dollars to back up 
their faith In our future. Duluth has 
had a steady growth but from now on 
we may well expect It to go forward 
by leaps and bounds. I 

"It is remarkable that with our 
actual growth and unbounded pros- 
pects, there has been practically no 
speculation in real estate for the past 
fifteen years. Buying there has been, 
but almost entirely fov actual use by 
the purchaser, and j«Duluth is now a 
city of homes and there are compar- 
atively few renters. 

"Owners of property make it easy 
for all, whether laborer, mechanic or 
business man to own their own homes ; 
by selling on very easy terms, and i 
while we are destined to become a I 
large cltj", let us aU pull together for i 
a model city distinguished for its citi- 
zenship as well as its commerce and 

Good Profits Certain. 
There has not been'^a time for over 
twenty years when one could buy real 
estate in Duluth and feel so certain of 
good results as now." said N. J. Up- 
ham. "Property : mtist • advance for 
several years to icouae,* because of the 
period of great iii"oS]pftrlty assured the 
whole country. Thos« who profit most 
will be those who tU^X' early. The lafi:- I 
gards will pay increased prices and 
have poorer 'A word to the 
wise i'B sufflclentM Tofthe thoughtless, 
it is useless to frf? fh<Tre." 

Home Bnildins Prominent. 
W. W. Fensterrnacher said: "Home 
building in Duluth lia§ become a very 
large item in the ln<llistrial life of the 
city, employing in its various branches 
a large number of men, who are occu- 
pied to a great extent all the year 

"Good wages are being paid and the 
best men are thereby obtained and 
from Hi I accounts, labor and capital in- 
sofar as the building trades are con- 
cerned, were nevei;- -more harmonidus 
than they are at. the present time. 
Providing the prices of materials en- 
tering into the construction of homes 
do not soar too high. I believe and ex- 
pect the coming ytar will be a most 
active one In home building, the out- 
look and Indications at this" time being 
very good. 

"Duluth homeseekers have become 
more and more discriminating, until 
it has become quite a problem to find 
an acceeptable house already built, 
and this condition has brought into 
existence the companies who are now 
devoting more and more time, study 
and ttijoney. In, order to ^ «atlsfy. this 
growing' demand of th^ homeseeji^rs of 
small means, but ttlip are nevertheless 
energetic ana ambitious, ana who want 
well-built and warm houses even 
though modest and unpretentious. This 
class, as a rule, become our prominent 
citizens of tomorrow and are our best 
citizens and neighbors of today." 

George Ha£fis.jQf«th«. Harris Realty 
company said: "XoiKis Ibe time to buy 
Duluth real estate. Good bargains can 
be picked up all tr^r th5 city that will 
yield a good percentage on your in- 
vestment and resell at a big profit, but 
you need not be surprised if the pres- 
ent prices go up 26 to 100 per cent 
within a very short time. Outsiders 
are watching Duluth, while most of the 
Duluth people are asleep. Don't wait 
until you will have to say, 'I am sorry 

I could have bought this for 

etc' Don't pay rent. There is no end 
to it. I can show a list of property 
owners that bought three to five years 
ago, with small cash payments of $100 
to $600, and have paid up the balance 
with their rent money and now own 
their property outright, subject to a 
small mortgage In some cases. Look 
around. Watch the present Duluth 
real estate market and buy. You can- 
not go wrong." 

"The mines on the iron ranges near 

Duluth make Minnesota the banner 
iron-producing state In the Union," 
said R. M. Hunter "WMth a city of 
100,000 and the Minnesota Steel com- 
pany's modern plant as a nucleus, I 
expect to see Duluth soon become one 
of the important iron and steel man- 
ufacturing centers of America." 
Do It for Dulnthk 

"The best criterion of growth and 
large future prospects in real estate 
in any city or community is the atti- 
tude taken by men who have the op- 
portunity of viewing situations from 
the outside," said I. W. Lee. 

"This is exactly the present situa- 
tion here today, and I cannot help but 
feel that there are great possibilities 
for making money in Duluth real es- 
tate, inasmuch as outside capital is 
being Invested here to a large extent. 
It is the opinion in all lines of business 
activity that the country at large is 
on the verge of an era of prosperity 
and it is also felt that Duluth and vi- 
cinity will be one of the first places 
to feel this condition, and if we are 
to get all that there is out of the so- 
called 'good times,' it will mean con- 
stant co-operation and constant spirit 
of 'Do It for Duluth.' " 

ProMperlty Ship Loaded. 

"Our ship loaded to capacity with 
prosperity Is due at this port very 
soon," said George M. Fay. "A sub- 
stantial Improvement and growth In 
all lines of business will be noticed 
this year. There will be a big move- 
ment in Iron ore during the season of 
1916 and ore will bring a much bet- 
ter figure than ,that received the last 
two years. This will be one of the 
chief factors In bringing increased 

Prosperity to the Head of the Lakes, 
look for a banner year In the real 
estate business and anticipate a big 
demand for all classes of property." 

William McBean of McBean-Nesbitt 
& Co. said: 

"Since the date foi the commence- 
ment of operations at the steel plant 
was announced, there has been a 
marked demand in our office for home 
sites. Duluth people who are renters 
are evidently anxious to establish 
homes and become permanent citizens. 
We believe these people are fully jus- 
tified in their conclusion that Duluth 
Is one of the best towns In the United 
States in which to locate, and I look 
for a great building movement early 
next spring among home owners in 
desirable residence properties, like 
Crosley Park." 

Duluth Values Lo^r. 

W. M. Prin'lle expressed himself as 
optimistic regarding the real estate 
outlook in Duluth dtiring the present 

"Realty values in Duluth are lower 
than any other city In the country of 
the same size and none of them offer 
anywhere nearly equ&l possibilities for 
development," he said. "Valuations 
here have really not been advanced to 
any extent and insofar as I can see 
they can only move lipwards. The lid has 
been kept on so tightly that no water 
has been injected and there Is no room 
for ihem to drop. Outsiders seem to 
be approaching more fully the real es- 
tate investment opportunities offering 
bejre, and I think that we have reason 
to look forward to a good movement 
In properties in the near future." 
Housing Problem Acute. 

A, W. Kuehnow, president of the 
Gary Land company, averred that he 
looked forward to a record year in the 
Duluth realty field. 

"Considering the industrial develop- 
ments taking place in the steel plant 
district, we nave every reason to ex- 
pect a big movement here," he said. 
"With hundrds of men now employed 
in the various departments at the Min- 
nesota Steel company's plant and the 
certainty that the number will be 
doubled or trebled before the year is 
out, the housing question in Gary-Du- 
luth has become a problem. Blocks of 
new homes will be required to take 
care of the employes who desire to live 
within an easy distance of their 
w^ork. That Is leading capitalists to 
look into the situation and the build- 
ing of homes on an extended scale is 
promised. The present asking figures 
of Gary lots are regarded as cheap 
and Investors are showing an increas- 
ing Inclination to take advantage of 
the opporttmities offering." 

Outside Capital Coming In. 

E. D. Field, president of the Fleld- 
Frey company, said: "Real estate men 
are looking forward into the new year 
with a feeling of confidence. There 
has been a long period of inactivity 
and the general revival of trade and 
manufacturing which Is already evi- 

dent, will surely bring Increased busl- [ 
ness to the realty man. 

"Duluth is especially well situated j 
to benefit through the generally im- i 
proved conditions by reason of the es- 
tablishment of the steel plant here, im- 
proved rate conditions and other fav- 
orable developments at the Head of the 
Lakes. Moneyed men are familiar 
with these changed conditions and will 
be quick to take advantage of them. 
Much outside money will undoubtedly 
soon be fiowing into Duluth for in- 
vestment in real estate and mortgages, 
and our own people, with returning 
confidence, will soon have a better 
realization of the real value and pos- 
sibiliiies of Duluth real estate." 
Farnt Lands in Demand. 

Said Wilbur F. McLean of Cant & 
McLean: "The future of our city is 
dependent to a very large extent upon 
the development of the country sur- 
rounding Duluth. The sooner the va- 
cant lands in the northern part of this 
state are populated with farmers, the 
faster will Duluth grow in size and 
number of industries. 

"It is pleasing to note the rapid de- 
velopment of the farming community 
In this vicinity. The fertility of the 
soil has been proven beyond a doubt. 
A steady market for farm produce is 
always assured, and the farmers have 
found that their lands have Increased 
In value to a remarkable degree, while 
Investors have reaped handsome profits 
because of the advance in farm land 
values in this section. Indications 

point toward more rapid progress dur- 
ing 1916 than in any previous year." 

Said C. Francis Colman: "The Iron 
industry Is more prosperous than ever 
before. The lumber industry shows 
signs of permanent awakening; rate 
adjustments are favorable, and gen- 
eral conditions eixcellent. Get ready. 
The pendulum is swinging Duluth's 
way. Heavy real estate Investments 
go hand in hand with prosperity." 

"Having studied the real estate con- 
ditions in Duluth for the last ten years, 
I can say that things never looked bet- 
ter than they do now," said Charles 
Eliasson. "I have made a good many 
trips to the most important cities of 
the East and South, and have com- 
pared our city with other steel cities, 
and I believe that Duluth has greater 
possibilities than any of them. 

"I would advise everyone who is in- 
terested in real estate investments to 
invest now, as I believe now Is the 
right time. Let us all work together 
and make 1916 the banner year." 

Thomas Olafson said: "Aside from 
United States government bonds, real 
estate is the one sure safe profitable 
investment the world over. The wave 
of prosperity that started on our 
Eastern coast, caused by the turmoil 
in Europe will soon hit Duluth. East- 
ern investors are placing their money 
In Duluth and other western cities to 
be ready for the wave of prosperity 
when it comes — a.s they know it will. 
Duluth people should endeavor to get a 
slice of the profits to be made In real 
estate during 1916. The possibilities 
of making money in West Duluth are 
pointed out very clearly by a study 
of the map of the city." 

Said W. C. Sherwood: "As we scan 
the horizon of Duluth's immediate fu- 
ture, we see the shaping of many 
eventful conditions. Xo city in the 
United States in relation to its size car- 
ries so low a price for Its bu8lne6.«« 
property, giving investors a present 
opportunity of buying unequaled any- 
where in tills country. There Is, how- 
ever, one blot on Duluth's fair 
escutcheon and that is the blight of 
ultra-conservatism. There are some 
who seem to think that Duluth is 
large enough at the present time. They 
say they do not want it to grow too 
rapidly. The test of our devotion Is 
shown in the largeness of our view- 
point. Duluth's growth and expansion 
along every line is inevitable. Let us 
clear the way of any obstacles to that 
growth with unceasing effort so that 
It may truly be the most prosperous 
citv of the Great Lakes." 

B. F. Schweiger of the B.- P. Schwei- 
ger company reports a very satisfac- 
tory business to have been closed up 
during 1916, but he expects the pres- 
ent year to be one of much greater 
activity. General conditions analyzed 
show this to be the trend of the real 
estate market. One cannot lose money 
on Duluth real estate if they use any 
judgment at all in buying, he thinks. 


Grand Forks, N. D., Jan. 8. — (Special 
to The HeraH.) — Thomas J. Dillon, one 
of the editors of the Seattle Post In- 
tellingencer, called here by the serious 
illness of his father, got his start In 
the newspaper game as a carrier for 
a local paper when he was a boy. 

Mr. Dillon, after leaving Grand 
Forks twenty-two years ago, went to 
Minneapolis, where he was employed 
on several newspapers. More recently 
he has been located in the west, and is 
now on the Seattle Post Intelligencer. 


Munger Improvement Cluli ' 
Presents Situation to 
School Board. / 

Must Have Accommodation 

for Pupils — President 

Brewer Impressed. 

"Establish a junior high school at 
the Munger or at least Increase it.« ?«• 
duties so that It will accommooat* 
eighth grade pupils." 

That was the request made to thf 

board of education at its first meeting 

of 1916 in the Central high ?< h...l 

building last night by six members of. 

the Munger Improvement club. Charles 
G. Firoved, president of the club, htJ^d- 
ed the delegation. 

"We are In the center of a r?. i-idly 
growing district," Mr. Firoved e-^ul, 
"and the school l.s too small. It ha* 
been too small from the beginning. W« 
have studied the problem, and beli^v4 
that the Munger site Is an ideal plac^ 
for the fourth junior high school. 

"Seventh and eighth grade pupHs 
must go to the Washington Junior 
high," Mr. Firoved continued, "and wd 
feel that It Is a hardship. Many rar- 
ents cannot afford to pay the carfare 
necessary, and it is too far for . hil- 
dren to walk." 

Commends Interest. 

"Personally," said F. A. Rr«-wer, 
president of the board, in reply, "1 fe<i 
that the Munger is a little off to or.e 
side, and that it will not accommoda«« 
as many as a more central location. 

"I will say, however, that if th* 
Munger district continues to grow i^^ 
it has grown during the last year, and 
if the delegations from civic club.x of. 
that locality continue to show as mutJi; 
interest In the matter, the Munger hfia 
an excellent chance of landing. 

"The nfext annual levy must providtt 
for a fourth junior high school build- 
ing," he said, "in order to complete th© 
system which the board start^^d to in- 
stall two or three years ago. The boar^i 
is, of course, considering the m»ttei', 
but we can't establish junior hijiti 
schools at all grade buildings, and W<J 
haven't determined yet where to put 
the East end one." 

The Munger school now is crowUd* 
It has about 450 pupils.

War Relegated to Second 
Place During Celebrations 
in Petrograd. H 

Petrograd, Jan. 8, via London.— Tlj» 
war has been relegated to 6ecoii4 
place for the time being in the mind» 
of the Russian people by the holidajfi 
festivities in which they are now a.b^ 
sorbed. Notwithstanding the counilesa 
broken family circles, there is much vC 
the old peace time enthusiasm beintf 
manifested in the varioiA observance* 
of the season, both of a social «n^ 
a religious nature. 

Business came to a standstill at % 
o'clock on Christmas eve for a three-*

With better promise than does the 
present one. With easy money con- 
ditions as an aid, many deferred pro- : 
jects are likely to become realities, , 
and considerable new work is also 
coming to light. 

The building of four more expensive 
houses In the eastern residential dis- 
tricts Is said to have been decided 
upon, and architects are now engaged 
upon the preliminary plans. More im- 
portant improvements in the business ' 
sections of the AVest end and AVest 
Duluth are in sight. Arrangements 
for two factory extensions that will i 
involve heavy outlays are also taking 
definite form. 

Xew Siuperlor Street Hotel. 

A feature of the week came in the 
letting of the contract for the Pearson 
hotel building on Superior street near: 
Sixteenth avenue west. Jacobson Bros., ' 
the successful bidders, have already ' 
begun the excavation for the founda- 
tion. The building will be a two-story 
brick, and will involve an outlay of 
$20,000. Three stores will be provided 
for on the ground floor, and the hotel 
above will contain thirty rooms. Giliu- 
son & Carson are the architects. 

To provide for the operating of Its 
proposed extension to Morgan Park, 
the Duluth Street Railv.'ay company 
has arranged for the btillding of a 
brick power station on Grand avenue, ' 
between Ninety-second and Xlnetv- 
third avenues west. JV. permit for $4,500 i 
to cover the cost of the structure has i 
been taken out. ' 

• * • 

Plans have gone out for figures from 
the office of Holstcad & Sullivan, archi- 
tects, for a brick business block to be i 
built on Twenty-flrst avenue west be- 
tweeii Stiperior and First streets. Its 
cost is estimated at $8,000. 

• * * 

C. E. Nyslrom. architect, has the ; 

lans in hand for the proposed pew . 

igh school building. The structure 
will b« one of the complete in ■ 
the Northwest and will contain some ! 
new features. Work upon it will be 
started in the early spring. 

• • « 

The plans for the proposed boys' 
T. M. C. A, building to go up on the 
site 9f the old Pilgrim Congregational 
church at Lake avenue and Second 
street are expected to be ready to go 
out for figures shortly from the office

For those of our readers who desire a liome all ou one floor, we present the above design- The bungalow 
has come to stay; its great convenience and home 'satisfaction quickly offset the small amount of extra money 
Involved. The floor plan embraces the "service hall." a feature originated by this firm of archltectB. and a fea- 
ture which has become widely known among builders In the city. The large porch gives the building a home 
atmosphere, and many pleasant evenings can be enjoyed on it during the summer time. The building would cost 
to erect in th« city of Duluth about $4,200. complete with plumbing and heating. Start your work early. 

Enjoy Yonr Porches Daring the Winter 

by having us enclose them with glass. If you have not already ordered 
storm windows, do so now and avoid the rush when the cold weather 
comes. We install the best metal weather strip on the market.

Refreshed from their annual two 
weeks' vacation, the students of Cen- 
tral high school returned to school 
Monday and immediately prepared to 
enter upon the home stretch of the 
lirst semester. This is the final month 
of the semester, and the final examina- 
tions win begin on Jan. 31. There will 
be a schedule of Ixamlnatlons and the 
regular school order will be discon- 
tinued during the week. The student 
1.-J required to be in school only during 
the time that Ife has an examination. 
This system was Instituted two year* 
ago, and since the pupil is given al- 
most two hours in which to write his 
examination, much better results are 
gained than were possible to reach In 
the old method of forty-minute periods.

Extensive plans are being made by 
the members of the Lambs club In 
preparation for their big circus to bo 
held sometime during the latter part 
of February. The memb«r8 of the or- 
ganization held their regular weekly 
meeting following the close of school 
yesterday, and a long discussion of 
the plan was held. Several distinct 
features were proposed, and the mem- 
bers are urged to rake their brains for 
new Meas during the coming week. 

This will be the first circus ever at- 
tempted at Central and, if successful, 
should make a decided hit. The mem- 
bers have made the firm decision that 
It wlir not be a failure and are work- 
ing hard on it. Several novel features 
have already been arranged for and 
managers for. each of the several de- 
partments will be named. Several 
novel features of the physics and chem- 
istry laboratories will be used to good 
advantage and are expected to excite 
great awe among the bewildered mem- 
bers of the freshman class. The affair 
will undoubtedly be a great success 
and the club treasury should be en- 
riched materially by it. 

Owing to the lack of Interest evident 
among many of the a<i?wos*d members 
of the Lambs club, the organization has 
decided to hold a reorganization. AH 
those wishing to become members will 
have to promise regular attendance at 
all of the meetings, and If they do not 
show any Interest in the activities of 
the club, they will be dropped from 
the membership. The club will be of-

Creamery at Two Harbors 

Has Helped Develop 

Lake County. 

Two Harbors, Minn., Jan. 8. — (Spe- 
cial to "The J^erald.) — According to a 
sworn report made by Jenkins Bros., 
creamery owners here, for the state 
dairy and food commission, they have 
purchased rom the farmers in this vi- 
cinity during the la.= t eight months 
12,914 pound.s of butter fat, for which 

thev have paid $4,600, being an average 
of "approximately 34 cents per pound. 
The prices paid by the local creamery 
have averaged 5 cents per pound high- 
er than that paid by other institutions 
of its kind throughout the state during 
the year. 

FarmerK Take to It. 
It has been the opiin<.H of experts 
that Lake county is especially adapted 
to dairy farming and slowly but surely 
A the farmers are beginning to realize 
that this is true, but the great trouble 
heretofore has been the fact that the 
farmers have had no place to market 
their cream. With the location of the 
new creamery here last spring, the 
farmers have been assured of a con- 
stant market wt top-notch prices. A 
number of farmers in this vicinity have 
recently purchased pure-bred cattle 
during the last year, thus making it 
apparent that more Interest is being 
taken by the farmers. 

The local creamery is now^ arrang- 
ing to Increase Its facilities for the 
coming year, expectlng-to Increase bus- 
iness more than :J00 per cent during

Uric acid In meat excites the kid- 
neys, they become overworked; get 
sluggish, ache, and feel like lumps of 
lead The urine becomes cloudy; the 
bladder is irritated, and you may i>e 
obliged^ to seek relief two or three 
times during the night. When rhe 
kidneys clog you must help them flu.'-h 
off the body's urinous waste or you" 11 
be a real sick person shortly. At fijst 
you feel a dull misery in the kidney 
region, you suffer from backache, siok 
headache, dizziness, stomach gets 
sour, tongue coated and you feel 
rheumatic twinges when the weather 

is bad. 

Eat less meat, drink lots of water; 
also get from any pharmacist four 
ounces of Jad Salts; take a tablespoon- 
ful in a glass of water before break- 
fast for a few day.s and your kidneys 
will then act fine. This famous salts 
is made from the acid of grapes and 
lemon juice, combined with lithla, and 
has been used for generations to clean 
clogged kidneys and stimulate them 
to normal activity, also to neutralize 
the acids in urine, so it no longer is 
a source of Irritation, thu.s ending 
bladder weakness. 

Jad Salts is inexpensive, cannot in- 
jure; makes a delightful eflfe^ve^t•ent 
lithia-water drink which everyone 
should take now and then to ke'-p tht> 
kidneys clean and active. DruKgiMs

Northern Minnesota farmers are ad-

again.«t the creamery promoter. He 
declares tliat a new and sj'stematic «t-

•"The creamery." says Mr. Wasiiburn, 
"Is good, and the co-operative furnier- 
owped creamery is better, but there 
must be enough cows in the tributary 
territory to support it. Otherwise, tt 
will not have the raw material with 
which to work, and will be certain to 
fail. The product of at least 600 cows. 
or about 60.000 pounds of butter fat 
per year, is necessary to eu.sure suc- 
cess. Cream shipping, ln«lividually or 
cn-r>p. ratlvely, or a co-operative cheese 
factory is to be preferred to a co-oper-

"Any community considering the 
building of a co-operative dairy ent-r- 
prise should first appeal to the college 
of agriculture, or the state dairy and 
food department, for the advice of 
their men with regard to possibilitl -s. 
Sucii advice may be had simply for the 
asking. Advice given by the experts 
from these departments has saved 
many a community from suffering seri-

"Th** firet question the man contem- 
rlating farming as a life occupation is 
likely to ask himself is, 'Where shall 
I locate'."" said George H. Ebert of 
the Ebert-Walker company. "The de- 
teiniining factors that will guide him 
In niaking this decision are price of 
lands, soils adapted to his particular 
kind of farming, pure water, amount 
of rainfall, and. last but not least, 
markets and the facilities to reach 

"Northeastern Minnesota affords un- 
usual opportunities for the stock and 
dairy farmer. No class of farming will 
so improve and build up the land. In 
no oth^r kind of farming can the farm- 
er operate and succesijfully manage so 
larjje an acreage, for after all it Is an 
undi'^puted fact that the steadily In- 
creasing value of produ<tive land 
♦ veiywnere is the main determining 
factor justifying a man going into debt 
on land purchases. Where else in the 
I'nited States can you buy fertile land 
so cheap? What other location will 
produce such abundant crops of clover, , 

timothy and of all kinds as j ^„ „ , „ ^,,^.,„ „ „

"Agricultural developments in North- 
ea.«itern Minnesota have just begun. 
Thi.'* section is rightly termed the 'poor 
man's country,' because every man of 
small means who is willing to work 
can be a landlord. This Is the one sec- 
tion that can offer you this induce- 
ment, cheap land and a sure, big in- 
crease in land value. For a permanent 
and safe investment, buy land in the 
coining stock and dairy region of Min- 
nesota, the land of big red clover. It 
will make you a permanent asset that 
will neither burn nor fade away."

"You cnnnot go to h'-aven on a the- 
ater ticket nor take up your cross and 
follow Christ to the dance hall." 

"Yes, j-ou have seen Methodists at 
such places, but they are not M'tho- 
disL3. They are hypocrites." 

The.^e were two of the stai*>ment3 
made by Rev. Eugene Nelson, pastor of 
the Bethany Norwegian Danisli M. E. 
church. Sixty-fifth avenue west and 
Polk street, last night when speaking 
on two Questions that he found in the 
church question box following the 
morning service yesterday. The pas- 
tor scored dancing and theater-going 
and especially those church organiza- 
tions that raise money for building and 
maintaining churches by dances and 

The two questions in the box were: 
"Is it sinful to go to the theater?" and 
"What harm is there in dancing*."" 

In speaking of the former question 
the pastor said that one of the jokes 
of the day was the church that con- 
ducts dances and theatricals for the 
purpose of raising money for the fur- 
therance of the cause of Christ. Fhe 
pastor said that if he should be so 
unfortunate as to meet a member of 
his church who attended dances, that 
person would either have to stop going 
to dances, withdraw from the church 
or be . xpelled. , ^ . j
