The Appeal man, aged five years, like
many other little tots, is constantly
making some sage remark or observa
tion that gives evidence of thought
worthy of one of more mature years.
The Appeal man, like all.fathers who
wish to bring up their children in the
way they should go, is constantly tell
ing his children what they should or
should not do, on the dpnt-do-as-I-do,
but do-as-I-say theory. A few days
since, at the breakfast table, he was
talking quite earnestly on some sub=
ject, the importance, of which he
wished to impress upon the minds of
ihe youthful quartet which th$ storks
so generously left at his domicile, and
the tone of his voice, his solemn man
ner or his occasional punctuations on
the table with his clenched fist must
hava caused the little one to recall the
manner and actions of some itinerant
exhoiter or pulpit pounder whom she
had seen or heard, for all at once, dur
ing a temporary lull in the lecture she
naively inquired-: "Papa, could you be
a preacher if you wanted to?" It is
needless to add that the moral effect
of the lecture was lost.

At Grand Opera House, St. Paul.
James A. Heme's "Hearts of Oak"
company presented by a carefully se
lected aggregation of talented players
will be seen .at the Grand Opera
House the coming week. The attrac
tion will he first class in every respect
and will be given with realistic scenic
effects. The trade mark of success
won by the Heme management is
carefully lived up to. year after year.
Every one who has witnessed any of
Mr. Hemes plays will ever remember
the charm of the children he intro
duces. Especially in "Hearts of Oak"
and "Shore Acres" the children are
real, living natural beings. The au
thor provides them with lines such as I
they would really utter and allows
them to lisp their words and. express
their feelings as they would in real
life. Another realistic scene is the
famous dinner scene consisting of
good old-fashioned baked beans,, a
meat pie, boiled potatoes, griddle
cakes, bread and buttef and tea. There
is nothing make-believe about the sup
per for the actors and actresses en

rarely leave any of the good things
spread upon the supper table. This
is' the first time that this play has
been seen here at popular prices and

at that play-house. The engagement
will be for one week with the usual
Wednesday and Saturday matinee.

The building is located on Cromwell
avenue, in one of the most picturesque
spots in St. Anthony Park, near the
Como-Harriet car line. It is four miles
from the center of Minneapolis and
eight miles from the center of St. Paul,
and is within the corporate limits, of
The building is of dark red Menom
inee brick, with Lake Superior brown
stone trimmings. It is 88 by 47 feet
an has two main stories with a light
basement entirely above ground ex
cept at the front and a large high attic
story. It is a fire-proof building, is
steam heated and provided with per
fect ventilating equipment. There are
six bath and toilet rooms, with best
cpsn plumbing, supplied with both
hydrant and soft water. There will be
a complete laundry outfit and the
b'MHinp- will be supplied with gas and
electricity. All modern conveniences
will be at the disposal of the occu
A large pctagonal porch, the full
length of the building, projects from
the south end, which in the winter will
be inclosed with glass at the second
story where the nursery is, and at
other times with screens, thus forming

The reception hall has a highly or
namented chimney place facing the en

are the living and dining rooms, and
on the second floor are the large airy
nursery rooms, the best, place in the
house for the care of babies. Ample
accommodations are made for matrons
The society is now at work securing
funds for the purchase of furniture for
the new building. Many more beds
and much new bed clothing will be
needed when the home moves into its
new quarters. The home at present is
located at 435 Fairview avenue, in
Merriam Yark, in rented quarters.
When the home moves into its new
.building it will be able to do much
more and better work than it has been
able to do ever before in its rented
quarters. It is supposed that the so
ciety .will take children to hoard in ad
dition to /caring for foundlings.
At the-regular meeting of the Adel
phai Club last Tuesday, held at the
home of Mrs. Harry Howard, it was
decided by the ladies that they would
raise. $100 or more to be used in fur
nishing one of the reception rooms..^implies
A committee of ladies was appointed

The following testimonial, one of
many hundreds, testifies as to the effi
ciency of the Oxydonor:
St. Paul, Minn., Jan. 28, 1903
Dr. C. S. Wilson:
I take great pleasure in notifying
you that I have given the Oxydonor a
thorough test lately, when my wife
was sick with La Grippe. Bronchitis,
and a. touch of Pneumonia. It was a
severe attack, accompanied by... high
fever, and I must confess that I had
some doubts about the outcome. Eut
to ray surprise the Oxydonor-worked
i i*e magic: I hd to vse it in* ice t-r
35 hours, but it conquered the dis
ease. Applying the Oxydonor two
more nights perfected the cure.
Yours very gratefully,

Anyone wishing to investigate fur

call on or communicate with Dr. C. S.

THe Original of "Uncle Tom" Dead.
Norman* Argo, born a slave, died
Monday at Paint Lick, Ky., at the re
puted age of 111 years, the authentic
ity of which is fairly well established
by the family in whose service he
spent the greater part of his life.
Argo belonged to Gen. Samuel Ken
nedy, one of he wealthiest planters in
Garrard county, and the first, repre
sentative of this county in the Ken
tucky legislature. He was only three
feet four inches tall, and for that rea
son was known as "Little Norman."
He was employed as a house servant,
and was a great favorite with the
children. Mrs. Stowe got most of the
material for "Uncle Tom's Cabin" from
the Kennedy place.
Argo is said to have been the orig
inal Uncle Tom, as many of the traits
which made him respected by his own
er are found in Uncle Tom. Argo was
proud of this distinction. He had been
repeatedly written up. Fifty years and
more ago he was a wonder as a jockey,
and by his skillful riding won thou
sands of dollars for his owner.
A SYMPOSIUM ON LlARS
The following symposium on "Liars"
is worth reading, even if it fail* to do
the subject complete justice:
The liar whom the editor hates
worst of all is th) man who, when
dunned for a yea. subscription, says
he only received two or three copies
during the year, and refuses U pay.
Next to, if not above this one, the
editor hates a liar who takes the pa
per seven or eight years, and when
finally cornered for settlement, says
he never ordered the paper at all.
Pike County Post.
But the worst liar of the whole out
fit is the man who takes the paper sev
eral years, then moves away without
paying or saying anything about it,
and yet says he is an honest man.
Brethren, you all fall short of the
truth. The biggest liar in the lot is
the editor who publishes the obituary
of these aforesaid liara and intimates
that they have gone to heaven.
