The contribution of $1,000 by John F.
Slater of Norwich, Conn:, to create an
educational fund, to be known as the

the colored people of that section

Mii. Strong, of Pennsylvania, who
was recently appointed United States
marshal of Dakota, has "taken in" the
country sufficiently to satisfy his political
ambition and returned to the Keystone
State. Mr. Strong is the son of a minis

which spread out before his astonished
vision in Dakota, was sufficient to damp
en the zeal of even so enthusiastic a
Christian as he is.
It is time for our prominent property
owners to be willing to make the sacrifice
necessary to serve in the city council
and school board. The positions are
vital to our local prosperity. A man like
ex-Senator Ramsey, for instance, should

long as property owners will permit the
irresponsibles to manage their public
affairs, they may rest assured that there

John the beloved desciple, in the isle of
Patmos, saw a vision of seven golden can
dlesticks, and in their midst one like unto
the Son of Man, holding in his hand seven
stars. And -while he looked he heard a
vdicc telling him not to be afraid, saying,
"I am He that liveth and was dead; and
behold I am alive forever more, and have
the keys of hell and of death." This
voice told him that the candlesticks were
the seven churches of Asia, and the seven
stars were the angels of the churches, and
bade him write to them the words he
The messages from the Tisen liedeem
er to the angels of the churches are mes
sages to all mankind as well, and are ad
dressed to all who have ears to hear. No
words of Jesus seem to convey so solemn
and tender a meaning as those spoken to
John in his lonely exile.
Christ had been made flesh and had
dwelt among men; he had suffered and
died, and risen again, and been received
into glory. His mission was ended, and
salvation was possible for men. Having
loved his own who were in the world he
Joyed them unto the end, and parted from
them with those wondrous words of love
and cheer: "Let not your heart be
troubled, ye believe in God, believe also
in me. In my father's house are many
mansions." But knowing well the trials
and tempations that would befall them,
and the doubts and fears that would as
sail them, the risen Redeemer once more
appeared to his beloved disciple., and
gave him words of counsel, reproof and
encouragement, to strengthen and cheer
them in hours »f trial and doubt. And
to assure them that the way of salvation
was open and free for all time, he told
them "I have set befor thee an open door,
and no man can shut it."
When Jesus was yet on earth he taught
his disciples saying, "I am the door; by
me if any man enter :n, he shall be
saved." The truth of these declarations
must be summed up in this way: Christ
is the door to life eternal. He has him
self set it open for all mankind. Who
ever will may enter, aad no man can shut
the door. If the Bible teaches one truth
more strongly than the rest, it is the ne
cessity of a Redeemer to save mankind.
It points out, wh» this Savior must be,
by foretelling his birth, his life, death
and resurrection, all of which prophecies
found fulfillment in Christ. His own ex
plicit declarations, eueh as, "I am the
"Way, the Trutli, and the Life. Ho man
•ome'th t© the Father but by me;"
and Peter's word*, "Neither is
there salvation in any other;

eavehn, given among mm, whereby we
must be saved,' c6niirm this truth.
This open Joor is free to all who wish
to enter, and no man can shut it. To the
man who accepts Christ as his Savior and
follows him, no one, priest or layman,
ordained minister or evangelist can close
the door, in the light nf this truth how
arrogant and false are the pretensions of
the churches to decide who shall be wor
thy to be members of Christ's
family. To decide that, because
one man differs from them on some minor
points of doctrine, that he must be cast
out with unbelievers. That, because one
body of Christians believe in times of
mirth and festivity, and music and
dancing, they are unworthy the fellow
ship of oth\ : r professing Christians.
To th« earnest humble believer in
Christ there is no occasion for doubt or
uneasiness. His Redeemer has risen, and
the love that ransomed him from death is
with him always. The Bible he must
search for himself, and the Holy Spirit
will teach him its truths. It is to the
Bible he must look for counsel
and -instruction, and not to
schools of theology and doctors of
divinity. They can only teach
what they have been taught and they are
human and fallible. But the scriptures
are unerring and unchanging. It is in
their light one must learn to understand
the will of God. "All the hard and bit
ter questions are answered there to the
the lowly heart, and nowhere else, and
to ho one else?" Each one must learn
it for himself , and learn it there. "God
is never weary of teaching if men are
never weary of learning." The finite
mind cannot comprehend the "mystery of
Godliness,' 1 but all the knowledge neces
sary to thoroughly fit man for this life ,
and prepare him for another it is to be
And, in ail times of trial and doubt, the
Christian can strengthen himself with

What will make a man or woman more
croß3 or ill-natured than a revere attack of
rheumatism? What will effect a cure as
promptly as the Great German Remedy St.
Jacobs Oil? Mr. William Davadge, related
the following eignificaLt facts bearing upon
the above query ,to a representative of a prom
inent Philadelphia daily. "My father, the old
comedian, now with Hill's Troupe* has been
very enthusiastic about the powerful effects
of St. Jacobs Oil in rheumatic cases for some
time past. He had been a great sufferer from
rheumatism for years, and no treatment he
received appeared to do him any good. I
heard him sometime since praising St. Jacobs
Oil, and he appeared to be delighted the way
the Oil acted in his case. Not long afer that I
had a bad rheumatic attack myself, caused, I
think, by exposure while traveling, and re
membering what my father had said about St.
Jacobs Oil was strict y true, for before I had
used much of the remedy my rheumatism had
entirely left me, and I have not been bothered
in that way since. That Oil is certainly a
wonderful discovery, and does a vast amount
of good. " We should say that Mr. Davadge is
the well-known and popular actor.

A new geological theory has been advanced
by the English scientist, Alfred R. Wallace,
in an essay on "The permanence of continents
and oceans." He attacks the generally re
ceived theory that the distribution of land and
water in previous geological epochs was ma
terially different from what it is now, main
taining that the outlines of the continents and
the oceans are now as they always have been.
Mb. Lick, the California millionaire, who
left a large bequefet to erect "the most power
ful telescope in the world," did a good thing
forscieDce. "Science embraces the descrip
tion of bodies and of the general laws that
are derived therefrom.'' It does not mean the
various uses to man of this knowledge. This
latter is "applied science," or "the useful
arts'" as mechanical art, medical art, etc. The
distinction is just, and in all exact speech or
conversation 6hould be observed.
A Danish writer, by name Sophus Schack,

A most important classical discovery is re
ported from Athens. It is nothing lees
than a manuscript of Homer dating from
the 117lh Olympiad, 360 years B. C It was
found in an Athenian monastery by Professor
Rokos, already known to fame as the dis
coverer of the 6upposediost works ot Photios.
The papyrus roll is endorsed as the property
of Andronokos, nephew of the last emperor of
the Eastern empire, and was by him placed
in the monastery in 1428.
Nearlt all physicoogiets agree that great
benefit to medical science has been derived
from vivisection in the experiments on living
animals. The strong sentiment against it is
Hot justified to any great degree. Tet, no
doubt, needless pain is oftin caufced by these
experiments. As a practical solution of the
question/the Danish Bociety for the Protection
of Animals" has offered prizes on the poßSi
bility of replacing living by recenlty
killed animuls in physiological investigations.
This, no doubt, can be done to a great extent.
Many persons like rare, or as our English
cousins call it, "undone" meat. It has the
advantage of greater digestibility, but also the
drawback that the eggs of tapeworms, trich
rac, and such like unwelcome guests may
lurk in vigorous life in it- Even a more Eeri
ous danger has lately been pointed out by Dr.
Toussaint, of Paris. He thinks that the poi
son which produces consumption and scrofula
is thus introduced into the system. The raw
flesk of turburculous animal, he avers, can
convey the disease, and as such animals are far
from uncommon, he recommends that all meat
jbe subjected to a temperature of at least 160
degrees fan. throughout, before being eaten.
Oscah Wilde is not the only practical advo
cate of short knee-breeches. A farm laborer
comes to the rescne, in a letter to an agricul
tural exchange, advocates the use of knee
breeches, and gives some practical reasons
for their use which have escaped aesthetic
notice. He says farmers would use leggings
with them below the knee 3, which could be
easily removed, whereas, in ploughing or
other rough werk, mud now lodges on the
pantaloons, and it is apt to stay there. Be
sides, trousers of the present fashion are so
loose that they not only admit dust to the
delicate cuticle of the laborer, but also permit
the encroachment of the fly and vindictive
Good people differ much in their opinion of
the propriety of the Ober-Ammergau Passion
Play. Those who have seen it in its native
place in the charming Bavarian village, amid
pious listeners with the marvelous background
o! mountain, vale and Eky , rarely acknowl
edge any sense of inappropriateness. On'the
boards of a theatre in San Francisco, or New
York, in both of which cities it has been pro
posed to exhibit it, the cha»n would be lost
and the play would seem irreverent. It has,
however, been imitated successfully in a vil
lage in Worcestershire, England. A number
of scenes from the life of Christ were repre
sented and the general imprescion was
satisfactory. The presentation, at
the best Is a hazardous one,
and more. For mortal men to personate the
Savior of mankind, his bloody agony, his
crown of thorns, his crucifixion, is no'hing
short of sacrilege, and the whole thing should
be stamped out as blasphemous It is trench
ing on ground too awfully sacred.
The tomb of Daniel Webster at Marshheld
is in a lot that is now well filled with the
tablets that record the name 6«f the departed
members of the family. The tomb itself is
surmounted by a plain marble slab with
"Daniel Webster" cut upon it in simple let
ters. Two willow trees overshadow i# the
slips frem which they grew having been
brought from those which wept over Napo
leon's grave at St. Helena, and it is worthy of
note that the blood of the two families has
met and mingled through the marriage of
Caroline Leßoy Appleton, a grand-daughter
of Daniel Webster, to Jerome Bonaparte.
Near by, in the burying-ground, is the Win
slow tomb, bearing the escutcheon of Josiah
Winalow, Governor of New Plymouth, and

"The Man about Town," in the New York
Star, has this to say about the New York
"machine boss:" I saw Roscoe Conkling the
other morning on professional business. Now,
I do not agree with the people and the papers
who say he is a ppor lawyer, or no lawyer at
all. I think he is a great lawyer. He seises
on the strong points of a case by intuition, as
it were. He grapples with the principle in
volved in it. He is weak only 'in details— in
such small matters as any humdrum petti
foger can master. He has aged live ytara in
one, and appears severer and more serious
thau formerly. His laugh whs restrained and
hollow, and his smile bad a touch of bitter
ness and disappointment about it. There ' is
no acid in the world that will t.ak« tin place
of oil as a lubricator, sad the friction of life
is evidently wearing fast into Mr. «>>Dkling's
nature and tearing the vital iiu-rliauism. But
I noticed that he outlined ou-iness for months
ahead, showing that he. lun not Rot a judge

It is a noticeable fact, stated by
one thoroughly acquainted with all of Long
fellow's writings that in none of his produc

of any well known tenets held by the evan

rather than a religionist. He.iecognized the
God of no denominational theology. He fail

the Almighty Father. ' While his writings

His was the genial spirit of a highly culti

influences that control the affections of those
who believe and trust in a risen Christ. His

educational refinement, rather than the off
spring of pietetie baptismal procreation. Un
like Bryant, the trend of his mind was not to

OUR JfTJSW COURT HOUSE.
Why Nat Build lr, on Bar) I ness Princi
ples Hod Make It Splf-Ha-SaStilujj?
To the Editor of the Globe.
The question of a new court house
which is now agitating the public mind,
will be voted upon by the people at the
coming election and is of great iterest
to every taxpayer. How to put up a
building that will answer every require
ment and still not burden the community
with a heavy debt?
We have a square with a frontage of
300 feet on each of^Wabashaw, Fourth,
Cedar and Filth streets, making a total
frontage of 1,200 feet. The entire Wa
bashaw street front could be handsomely
and substantially built up 100 feet deep
at a total cost not to exceed §150,000.
We would then have a building 100x300
feet for present use. Allowing two
stairwaj-s 12 feet each, we could have a
frontage of 27G feet left, which would
make twelve stores 23x100 feet.
The corner stores will rent for $1,200 per
year each and the ten inside
stores will rent for $900 per yearfeach,
making a total income of $11,400 with
which to pay the inteiest on the bonds,
and furnish a sinking fund with which to
liquidate the debt.
In ten years, perhaps, the increased
population and consequent business
might revuire more room, and then the
Foujth stree" side could be built up, and
as years rolled by, the Fifth street and
Uedar street sides could be added, thus
when complete giving an entire frontage
of 1,200 feet, and leaving a court in the
center for hgh,t and air 100 feet square.
To sum up a court house built on the
above plan would have the following ad

quirements at one-half the expense of the

and furnish a fund with which to pay off
Third. When more room is needed the
other wings can be added, thus saving us
at present the expense of putting up
more building than we can use.

are added, the rental of the ground floor

ent rantal of the ground floor on Wa
Of course the above are only a few
crude suggestions, but are they not worth
the serious attention and consideration
of the public? Did we ourselves own
that square would we not improve it in
some similar manner, desiring as we
should to invest our capital to the best
possible advantage ? Why, then, should
the already heavily burdened tax-payers
have a massive buUding imposed upon
them, from which no income can be
derived, and which will serve only as a
monument to future generations of our
short-sichtedness. C. H. S.

Seed Wheat Salts.
Attorney General Hahn goes to Wilmar
Monday to assist County Attorney Ransom in
the defense of what is known as the seed wheat
cases, of which there are some sixty, implead
ed together. Mr. Arctander, whose bril
liant management of the defense
in the Cox impeachment trial
attracted so much attention, represents
the parties bringing the suits.
The suits grow out of the seed grain legis
lation of 1877 and I&7S, the plaintiffs being
parties who either received or became bounden
under the terms of the law for grain issued
under it, and who neglected to make re
turns to the state, have had the amounts
charged against their property
in the tax levy, the suit
bsing to set aside the levy. The principal
point raised in the complaint, and upon which
the plaintiffs evidently rely for a decision in
their favor, is that the act of the legislature is
uncenstitutional because the tax imposed in
case of default on the part of the
recipients of the state's bounty, is not
uniform and general. The suit is
a very important one, as about $100,000 of the
tax levied under the provisions of the act still
remains uncollected, and should the decision
in these cases be against the state, the tax
could not be collected, and the state would
suffer a financial loss to that extent.

idea that it would be a good thin^to send

appointed Joseph Ellis, B. L. Gorman

went out and soon after returned with

public speaker, but on this occasion he

and appropnatness is very seldom sur
passed. He stated that "he had been
notified through the committee, of the
action of the convention, and that he
was very much gratified at that mark of
consideration, that it was not a subject
upon which he could be expected to make
a very long speech, but that he would
assure all his friends that should
he be elected he would perform
the duties of the office for which he had
been selected with industry and honesty,
and with all the faithfulness that could
be expected or desired. After returning
his thanks to the convention for the con
sideration bestowed upon him, he retired
and received the congratulations of his
friends, who are very numerous.
The convention then adjourned.

Gentlemek: It is with pleasure we
present to you our report for the year
just ended, showing as it does the in
creased prosperity and popularity of the
hospital. The number of patients re.
ceived during the year ending March 16,
was 202, being 79 more than were received
last year. Patients cured, 80; improved
52; incurable 25; died 21, under treat
ment March 1, 15. Of these 47 have
been eye patients under Dr. Atwood's
care. "There has been 1 marriage, 1 birth
4 baptisms: 70 surgical operations have
been performed; 69 of the patients were
women; 133 were men. Number of pa
tients paying full prices 144; number of
hospital patients by which we mean those
who pay for board only 34; those entirely
chanty patients 24.
Nationalities Represented — Americans
92; Germans 32; English 9; Swedes 26;
Norwegians 15; Danes 3; Irish 9; French
1; Scotch 5: Canadians 5; Hungarians 1;
Russians 1; Dutch2l.
Religions 'Represented — Lutherans 53;
Episcopalians 74; Presbyterians 5; Con
gregationalists 3; Dutch reformed 2;
Methodists 25; Roman Catholics 17; Bap
tists 18; Jews 2; non- professors 3.
During the year we have increased as
far as OHr means could allow, our appli
ances for carrying on the work of th c
hospital, securing the comfort of the
patients. Our physicians all beartesi
mony to the order prevailing throughout
the "house, and to the excellent care be
stowed upon those under treatment. Our
Matron invites the closest inspection of
the building from physicians and officers,
and will be happy at any time to show
the building to the trustees, that they
may see for themselves the extent of ou
facilities for carrying on tie work.
We cannot too strongly express our
commendation of our Matron, Mrs. Brad
bury. Added to unfailing vigilance, and
powers of endurance, she has rare
judgment in taking the proper course
when no advice is at hand, and prompt
action is a necessity, an emergency of
almost daily occurrence in hospital work.
We do not know of an instance in
which her line ot action has failed to
meet the entire endorsement of both med
ical board and officers.
While sincerely regretting that our
president, Mrs. Hale, feels compelled to
resign her position, we feel assured that
it is only her official connection which is
severed, and that her kindly interest and
sympathy will be extended to us in the
future as iv the years gone by. That her
robe of office is to lall upon our vice pres
ident, Mrs. Barton, is a happy illustration
of the law of compensation — her more
than satisfactory performance of her du
ties in the year past being ample guaran
tee of her "ability to meet any exigency
which may arise in the future.
Our acknowledgements are due to our
chaplain, the Rev. Mr. Kittson,
and to the Rev. Mr. Gilbert, for their
ministrations. We take pleasure, also,
in acknowledging the kindness of Mr.
Leib for the hour of music bestowed each
Sunday afternoon, is most gratefully ap
preciated not only by the patients, but by
all the inmates of the house. In behalf
of our matron we would sincerely thank
Mr. and Mrs. E. M. D. Wright for the
assistance afforded her in the perform
ance of her out-door duties, by their
kindness in frequently placing a convey
ance at her disposal. Last, but not least,
we. would express our grateful acknowl
edgement to our staff/ of physicians, for
their prompt and willing response to the
many demands made upon their
time and services by the Hospital
for their cordial commendation
of the efforts made by the matron, and
her assistants to carry out their
directions and wishes, for the
unfailing courtesy, and consideration
which they have always ex
tended to the officers. Realizing, that,
though facts are stubborn things, the
figures offered by our treasurer in her re
port will carry even greater conviction of
our prosperity to your honorable body,
than these statistics. We close this brief
report with the wish that our record for
the year to come may show even greater in
crease in our work," our finance, our gen
eral well-being than the record for the
year just closed. We apostrophise our
hospital in the words of the immortal
Rip Van Winkle, "May you livelong and
prosper." Mrs. Gilfiuan,
St. Paul, Minn, March 16, 1882.
To Hon. H. H: Sibley, president, and
members of the Board of Trustees, St.
Gentlemen: The medical board re
spectfully submit to the honorable board
of trustees their annual report of St.
Luke's hospital for the year ending March
16th, 1882. In doing so we feel warran
ted in congratulating the trustees, and
lady managers on the continued success
which has attended the hospital since
the opening of the institution in March,
1873, and its gradual development up to
the present time, which is practically
proved by the steady increase
of patronage especially shown
during the year ending March, 1882,
which records two hundred and two
patients, an excess of seven ty- nine over
any previous year. A large number of
these haye been patients sent from differ
ent portions of the state by physicians,
showing that the management of the
hospital has been favorably endorsed by
the medical profession and community at
large. It may safely be claimed that
should the liberality continue to be be
stowed upon it in the future that hais
Characterized its progress in the past,
renewed efforts will be needed to extend
the accommodations to keep pace with
the demand for admittance. Many
times during the past year have phy
sicians been refused admittance for their
patients, and those in need of its charity
been debarred its privileges, in conse
quence of the overcrowded condition of
the wards. It is also gratifying to the
physicians to be able to state that har
mony has prevailed to the fullest extent,
and all have contributed by the faithful
performance of their duties to its success.
To the efficiency of Mrs. Bradbury and
Mr. Jennerin their respective duties, we
bear grateful testimony.
St. Luke's, as now arranged, has all the
appointments of a modern hospital, well
equipped with all appliances necessary
for the treatment of disease, and posses
sing advantages superior to many, offers
to the afflicted with disease accommoda
tions that, cannot fail to give satisfaction.
We would suggest that steps bo taken
as soon as practicable for the purpose of
establishing a house dispensary where
physicians prescriptions of the hospital
can be compounded under the direction
of Mr. Jenner, the steward, a competent
pharmacist. This dispensation would be
found a profitable investment, not only
as a revenue to the hospital, but as a sav
ing to the patients, and accomplished at
a very moderate outlay. In a brief re
port it is impossible to fully set forth the
advantages of a dispensary connected
with a hospital of this kind. We must
look forward to the time in the near
future when a free dispensary will be in
despensible to fully carry out the inten
tions of the founders of the institution,
if we desire to extend its usefulness to
the deserving who may wish to attend
daily for advice, or seek shelter within
