For the week beginning to-morrow

tor of recognized
ability, who was seen here last season
with Miss Ada Rehan when the refinement
and subtlety of his comedy work won for
him the encomiums of and public.
The company supporting Mr. Clarke is
said to be above the average. The play
possesses one of the finest stories ever
told in dramatic form, a brief outline of
"which is given as follows: There were five
men in London who were bosom friends:

and guard him from every pitfall, and
well they performed their task. At the
rise of the curtain, the boy, Richard Ter

twenty-first birthday. He is known af
fectionately as "the Imp." Richard Ca
rewe is his adopted father. They are sit

the brave days when they were twenty-one

though they like each other. The Imp
enters, rather the worse for a wine din
ner. It comes out that he is in love with
Kara Gljnesk, better known as the Fire
fly, a woman whose business it is to per
form in music halls. Carewe determines
to save the Imp, so he bribes the Firefly
to have nothing to do with the Imp for
one month. Then the Firefly begins to
treat the Imp coldly, so the Imp's guardian
thinks, and subsequently the Imp meets
Richard Carewe at the Corinthian club;
high words pass between the two. Carewe
says something uncomplimentary about
the Firefly, at which the Imp astounds his
guardian and the large crowd of ladles and
gentlemen ©resent by crying out: "You
lie! She Is my wife!" The last act
shows Carewe in his own room, an hour
later, alone with his biterness. when the
Imp enters in a furious rage. There are
hot words and the Ims tries to strike
him. Then as he realizes what he was
about to do, he is horror-stricken, and
then filled with remorse, as Carewe points
to the door. As the Imp is about- to go
Tore%'er from the home he has known for
twenty years—all his heart and soul are
in bla words as he articulates: "You
might say good-night to a fellow, Guvn
or!" at which Carewe. who has been
awaiting the chance of a reconciliation,
reaches out both hands and the Imp
rushes into his arms.
"The Village Parson" will be the attrac

commencing Sunday. May 12. with Wednes

It is one of those plays which appeal to
audiences of a sympathetic nature, and it
appears that this class of the drama is
meeting with high favor at the present
time. The story is not only a brilliant

known, and she has many warm friends in
Minneapolis, who will be pleased at the j

the new Anglo-
Swedish comedy-drama, that will bring
forward the singing comedian, Arthur
Donaldson, at the Bijou for the week be
ginning May 12. Its author has not re
sorted to horse play or slap stick methods,
but the laughs in his play are none the
less frequent. Mr. Donaldson, the star of
this company, is well and favorably known
in this city and his legion of admirers
are already evincing a lively interest In

Sunday, May -J3, with Jessie Bartlett Davis as
the star attraction, and the last half of the
same week Howard Kyle will be seen in

The last half of the week at the Metropoli

Howard Kyle who formerly played leading
roles with Modjeska and other leading stars,
will appear at the Metropolitan the latter
part of May in "Nathau Hale," the repre

a play that by many is considered Clyde

THE WEATHER MAN AT WORK
Something About Director Outram, the Man
Who Keeps Minnesota Posted on the
Weather Conditions.
The office of Section Director Outram of
the weather bureau of the United States
department of agriculture is a very busy
place these days. Long articles are writ
ten periodically about the work accom
plished by the department of agriculture
In general and by the weather bureau in
particular and are diligently read by the
public, but this same public persists in
believing the position of local observer
and section director a sinecure. Nature
furnishes the weather, and any one can
forecast, so what is there to the job, is
frequently asked.
Mr. Outram has the following force un
der his charge in the local office: J. N.
Ryker, W. W. Carlisle, Alex Reynick,
printer, and Forest Halgren, messenger,
and the entire corps is busily engaged
every day and all day. The instruments
must have dally attention; the ink must
be renewed in the automatic registers,
and the paper on which the records are
traced must be replaced every day. The
records must be transferred to the books
and the averages for the day, week, month
and year kept up to date. These records
must show at a glance when the last
thunder or snow storm occurred; the
coldest day for the last ten years; the
precipitation on July 4th, for instance;
the rate of the wind for March 31, and so
on almost endlessly.
"Weather Man's Early Hours.
The work begins at 7 o'clock when the
morning observations are made. In a
short time the reports of similar read
ings from sixty-three other stations
come in by telegraph. These are tab
ulated, set up and made ready for print
ing with the weather map. A summary
must be condensed from these figures,
which with a forecast for the state, neigh
boring states, Minneapolis and vicinity is
put into type. The chart is then stereo
typed in the printing department of the
office and the whole matter is run off, so
as to have 350 copies in the mail before
10:30. This would be very expeditious
work for the best job office.
The Local Forecast.
The local forecast is then printed "with
logotypes on the Manila cards which are
so familiar to the business men of the
city. These are gotten out in time for
the early morning delivery. The cards
for Stillwater are sent out from the Min
neapolis office over the Interurban line.
Eight or ten different cities in the state
are supplied with similar cards in ad
vance. Mr. Outram has a three months'
supply prepared and sent to Mankato,
say. The forecast is telegraphed from
Minneapolis and printed and distributed
daily from that city. Not content with
this work Mr. Outram is making arrange
ments to supply the southern Minnesota
I division of the Milwaukee road, all the
| way from La Crosse, where there Is a
station, to Pipestone.
Crop Bulletin*.
So much for the regular work. In the
crop season a daily corn and wheat bulle

BUSINESS SATISFACTORY
Bradstreet'n Say» Condition* Are
Good the Country Over.
New York, May 4.—Bradstreefs says:
The sanguine feeling as to trade
and speculation finds reflection in the enor
mous activity in stock speculation, which
has attracted much money from the usual
commercial channels and expanded clearings
to unheard of totals. Warm, sunny weather
is helping retail trade in the cities, and is
likewise affording the farmers favorable op
portunity to complete crop planting. CJeueral
business, the country over, may be classed as
satisfactory. The iron and steel trades,
though reporting somewhat of a lull iv the
cruder forms, continue to furnish the best
reports, while the textile Industries return
the least favorable accounts.
The crop situation at present is quite en
couraging. Warm weather is helping corn
and cotton, and wheat maintains a gen
erally good condition, notwithstanding re
ports of damage by insects in the south
west. Cotton crop advices are fairly good,
and an increase in acreage is still fore
shadowed, despite much replanting having
been necessary- in Alabama, Georgia and in
Tennessee, where th* scarcity of seed for
this purpose is remarked.
Iron trade production naturally appears to
be-catching up with demand in the cruder
forms first. Bessemer pig Iron is 25c lower
this week and sates have been made of
southern pig 50c below the asking price of
some weeks ago, although Birmingham re
ports schedules adhered to. The advance of
$2 per ton in rails, which ■ went into effect
May 1, has resulted in considerable orders
j being placed by the railroads, and Chicago
alone reports 125,000 tons secured. In fin
ished products consumers are still urging
quick delivery, and-premiums are offered for
I the same, particularly by agricultural im-
I plement men, who are eager bidders for
I bars. Export trade has almost completely
stopped, particularly in the cruder forms.
The other metals are quite steady, except
as to tin, which is slightly lower on the
week.
Wheat (including flour) shipments for the
week aggregate 6,100,763 bu, against 4,282,169
bu last week, and 4,537,022 bu in the cor
responding week of 1900, 3,484,081 bu in 1899
and 2,923,775 bu in 1898. From July 1 to
date this season wheat exports are 176,916,238
bu against 166,035.602 bu last season and
201,198,468 bu in-1898-1899.
Corn exports for the week aggregate 2,371,
--892 bu, against 1,344,656 last week, 3,411,015
bu in this week a year ago, 2,817,290 bu
in 1899 and 6,185,904 bu in 1898. From July 1
to date this season corn exports are 157,
--015,436 bu, against 173,203,075 bu last season
and 142,511,107 bu in 1898-1899.
Failures for the week number 163, as com
pared with 214 last week. 153 in tH«* week
a year ago, 164 in 1899 and 240 in 1898.
Weekly Bank Clearings.
New York, May 4.—The following table,
compiled by Bradstreet, shows the bank
clearings at the principal cities for the week
ended May 2, with the percentage of increase
and decrease as compared wiin the corre
sponding week last year:

companions. In fact, she only uses them
occasionally. She enjoys knitting and
spend 3 many hours in this almost lost
art. Last fall she rode to Lodi and back
the same day, but previous to that time
had not made the trip for some twelve
years. She comes fairly by her longevity
for her father lived to be 103 years of age.
She is a Lutheran and is a member of Our
Savior's Xorwegian church at Lodi.
made for Minneapolis and Stillwater.
Monday is Mr. Outram's "busy day."
It is the day for the issue of the weekly
crop bulletin which is compiled from mail
reports received from about 400 corre
spondents throughout the state. The bul
letlu gives a general summary of crop
conditions, also reports from different
points in the three sections into which
the state is divided for convenience. This
bulletin is set 03 anß printed in the
printing office connected with the local
bureau and on Tuesday 900 copies are
mailed. Eighty newspapers of the state
print the summary weekly.
The Monthly Report.
But this is not all. The Minnesota Sec
tion Monthly Climate and Crop Bulletin
must be prepared, set up and printed by
the loth of each month. This is quite an
elaborate publication. It requires hard
work on the part of the editor. The rain
fall and weather reports from seventy
points must be examined and edited; aver
ages must be struck and the figures tab
ulated and put in readable form. The
typographical work for this is done in the
same printing office. At the end of the
year an annual bulletin is issued which
contains valuable comparisons for the
twelve months.
Even this does not complete the routine
of work. Mr. Outram is very neighborly
and gets out the monthly bulletin for the
Montana section director. The copy is
furnished by the Montana director, but
the arrangement of the matter falls upon
the local office. The Montana March bul
letin has just been Issued and sent on to
be distributed by the Montana director.
The postoffice is said to be the institu
tion of the government which comes clos
est to the people. If this be true, the
weather bureau is next. No small Dart
of the labor which devolves upon Director
Outram is the answering of numerous let
ters asking all sort^ of questions. As
Mr. Outram's territory includes the entire
state he has a good many letters to write.
No Bulletin* Are "Skipped."
The casual observer might say, "Oh,
well, they can skip a bulletin now and
then and nobody will be the wiser." If
such a thing should happen, a howl would
be raised that could be heard clear, down
to Washington. • For although Americans
may. profess to scoff at the bureau's pre
dictions, they.would not listen to a propo
sition for the shutting off of the forecasts.
The wheat men and the farmers would
speak emphatically if an issue should be
missed. ■
The local weather conditions are not
the only items of interest to Minneapolis.
It is an actual fact that men in this city
have made or saved hundreds of dollars
through such a simple thipg as an an
nouncement, in the weather items which
The Journal publishes daily, of a
heavy frost in some southern city in the
early spring. If the southern tomato
crop is ruined, the Minneapolis gardener
takes advantage of the calamity which has
befallen his fellow in the south and puts
in a quadruple planting himself and is pre
pared to supply at a profit the trade
which naturally belonged to the other
man.

[everything goes his way j
"I've had my full share of those tenders
of great places, which gratify one's pride
and enrich his career," Mr. Depew aaid
recently, "but no gift of office or fortune
has touched me so deeply or made me so
°happy as the continuance of the compli
ment which my friends pay me by the
remembrance of this anniversary of my
birthday.
. "I do not want to boast on such a sub
ject," continued Mr. Depew, "but I do
not believe there is a man in all the world
who has a better time than I do; who
has more friends and more enjoyment, or
a larger capacity for happiness that is
.kept full all the time. I am now 67 years
old, but I never was in better health, and
I never had so much pleasure as I have
enjoyed within the last year or two.
"Everything comes my way. I have no
pains and aches; no sorrows or anxieties,
no unsatisfied ambitions, no jealousies,
no disagreement with anybody. Last night
I went to a theater with a party of young
people to see one of those nonsensical
singing burlesques. Every one of my
party was und«r 30 years of age, but I
enjoyed every minute more than any of
them. We had a supper afterward, and
everybody had as good a time as I did.
"Forty years ago, when I was a young
man and the world was fresh to me, I
thought I enjoyed myself, but I enjoy my
self more now, because then I had anxi
eties and ambitions and restraints, and
now I have none."

male nurse was in attendance. I was fur
nished with a woolen wrapper and was
then asked to get upon the table and was
lowered into a barrel-like cylinder ap
paratus. Just as I was being lowered in
this large iron casing I heard a rather pe
culiar noise that seemed to come from the
adjoining room. I learned upon»inquiry
that the building adjoined a large kinder
garten school. At this point the children
commenced ainglng, 'Nearer, My God, to
Thee." I asked the doctor if there was
anything ominous about the singing at
this peculiar time, and he answered with
a smile. After the descent the tube
was placed in a reeclinlug position and
the heat turned down. At flrst the tem
perature was 115 F. and gradually it as
cended to 240 degrees. When the heat
rose to that height they applied ice-cold
water pads at the back of my neck and 1
forehead. Every part of my body was en
closed in this steel arrangement, except
ing my head. Then more heat was turned
on, and finally it rose to the height of 340
degrees.
One of the peculiarities of thw dry heat
was the very curious sensation it pro
duced. At that tremendous, temperature

roof. Water was just oozing from all
the pores, and while the treatment was
going on, and it lasted nearly three hours,
I was reduced In weight about three
pounds. After the heat process was over,
I was rolled on a cot Into an adjoining
room, where the temperature was about
80 degrees, which seemed the freezing
point, and was bathed with tepid water
saturated with antiseptics. Then I was
thoroughly washed again with luke-warm
water, which seemed like ice, then
greased from head to foot with cocoa
butter specially made for the purpose. It
took about four hours to complete this
experiment, and when it was finished, I
was so pleased with the entertainment
that, Instead of taking it as a cure, I am
bound to try it again for fun.
When I was put into the cylinder, a pan
of dough was placed in it at the same
time, and when I came out, the dough
was taken out, too, and there was as nice
a pan of bread as was ever baked in any
! baker's oven. The doctor explained that
the moisture of the body, which has about
95 per cent of waiter, keeps the skin in
such condition that it is impossible to
burn one's flesh in this oven. While you
are undergoing the "baking process," you
are constantly given water to drink.

HOT WATER MOTOR CAR
Frank Leslie's Weekly.
A demonstration was recently made
proving a new principle in engine practice
which should revolutionize the method of
supplying individual power to cars on
railroad* where a quick and sco&emical
service is required for distances not ex
ceeding thirty miles. This test was made
on the tracks of New York Central rail
road between High Bridge and Van Cort
landt Park. The system used is controlled
by the Storage Power company, of which
W. Seward Webb is president. The pat
ents covering this power were obtained
by W. E. Prall. After years of experi
ments his theoretical ideas have been
realized in practical tests. The most re
markable feature of this system is the
extreme simplicity of construction and the
small cost of the plant and equipment to !
make it serviceable. A generating plant
consisting only of a nest of vertical tubes
in a boiler is all that is required to heat
the water up to about 500 degrees Fahren
heit. This water is charged into cylinders
carried beneath the oar, from which it is
automatically passed through a tappet, or
measuring valve into the olearance space
of the high-pressure cylinder in small
regulable doses. The engines are of the
compound reciprocating type. As the
water enters the clearance space it im
mediately expands into steam and its
force is utilized against the head of the
piston, the exhaust passing into the low
pressure cylinder, where its remaining
power is converted into work. At the re
cent trial it was shown that it is possi
ble to drive a car weighing 68,000 pounds,
loaded with seventy-nve passengers, at a
cost, in coal, of 2 cents per car mile. The |
car traveled nine miles in twenty minutes.
The test was witnessed by officials from
the motive power departments.
