TO WASH THE WATER
An Easy Way to Purify It Without
A TIMELY BIT OF INFORMATION
It May Be of Use In Case West Side
Pumps Are Utted.,
The rains of the past month have ; been
distinctly .favorable to a moderate con
sumption of water in Minneapolis, and the
■' result has been that the north side pumps
have been able to supply the demand.
With the advent of dry weather, however,
with the accompanying large increase in
the street and' lawn sprinkling consump-.
J tion, it is inevitable that the west side
station pumps will have to be put in
service again and then prudent people
will do well to boil their drinking water.
But a good many people have a I decided
dislike for boiled water. For such, ; a
noted New York medical- man, recom
| mends a simple process of nitration that
can ; easily be made applicable to any
condition, and exhaustive experiments, it
is asserted, have shown that the number
of bacteria in : the water can thereby be
reduced very materially. Here is the pro
• * s
: I—Add one-half an ounce of :
: alum to a quart of water - and !::
>:. bottle the solution. . ■ :
I"':. 2—Make a plug of absorbent :
: cotton about' an inch in length :
. : and fit it into the neck of an or- : \
: dinary kitchen funnel. . : ;
: —Add two teaspoonfuls of the :
: alum solution to a gallon of :
: water and strain through the :
: funnel into another bottle or jar • :
■ _..;: and you will have water about :
• '■-_:• as ■ near chemically pure as any : j
<: ordinary filtration process will :
■: make it. ■ .-5 ■'.
The water will come through . perfectly
clear and will not contain any alum in
solution. The explanation of this inter
esting fact is that the alum combines with
■the lime in the solution in the water to
form a gelatinous • precipitate j which en
tangles any particles of mud and bacteria
that may be in the water, just .as egg
albumen unites the fine particles of coffee
and "clears" it. > ,
When a gallon or two of water have
been filtered by the above process a new
cotton plug ' should be substituted.
IN HONOR OF VERDI '
To-night* Harriet Program—
bert Club To-morrow Afternoon. .
To-night at Lake Harriet will be given
the second ■of the special concerts and j
judging by the crowd that was present at !
the Wagner concerts Tuesday evening
and by the demand for tickets already
noted for' to-night, the largest crowd of
the season will be present. If Signor Sor
rentino is partial to the music of any com
poser, it is to that of Verdi and in the
interpretation of the selections of this
famous.composer, the Red Band of Italy
is heard at its best. .',;.■-... .
In commemoration of the death of Verdi,
the program will be opened with a funeral
march and as Verdi never wrote a
funeral march, Chopin's famous composi
tion will be made the opening number, to
be followed by a program embracing some
of the most famous of the Verdi selections.
The list is as follows:
Funeral March Chopin
Grand Selection from "Rigoletto" Verdi
Solo Clarinet, "Ballo in Maschera" Verdi
Grand .Duetto from "II Trovatore" ..Verdi
Solos by Signori Bottega and Febbo.
"Cavalleria Rusticana ' Intermezzo.Mascagni

March, "Funiculi Funicula,"
Arranged by Sorrentino
The Schubert club program for to-mor
row afternoon has been settled upon and
will be found to comprise some of the best
things in Signor Sorrentino's repertory.
It had been the plan to give the compli
mentary concert to-morrow in honor of
both the Schubert club of St. Paul and
the Ladies' Thursday Musicale of Minne
apolis. It has since been decided to sep
arate these events and another program
specially arranged by the Musicale will
be given next week. The program to
morrow afternoon is as follows:

THREE TONS OF PEANUTS
The Increase in the Monthly Consumption Due
to the Penny-in-the-Slot Machines.
Three tons of peanuts, shelled and
salted, is the increase in the monthly
peanut consumption in Minneapolis due
to the advent of the penny-in-the-slot
machine. There are 200 of these machines
in operation in the city and they average
a little better than a pound a day. In ad
dition to this little boom in the peanut
trade, dealers notice an improvement in
the sale of other kinds of nuts. They give
the machines credit for boosting the traffic
The man who sweeps out the hotel
lobby, the depot waiting-room, or any
other place where it is thfe habit of two
or more to gather for consultation, is the
one who appreciates most the coming of
the peanut machine. He has not the same
quantity of shells to contend with. The
arrival from the country who likes pea
nuts and the city man who takes them as
a cheap lunch, are buying the shelled and
salted stock from the machines. But there
stUl remain many who like to buy the
big tumbler full of long, double-jointed
fellows for a nickel.
Peanut candy has lagged since the pea
nut machine arrived. Local owners of the
machines believe the coming of the har-

NO "BUMPER" CROP
That Seems to Be the Sentiment
Among Grain Men Now.
INDICATIONS BY LATE REPORTS
Flax Below the Average—The Dan
ger to Wheat-Some Bad
"Bumper crop" talk is about done. This
is not only true with local grain men but
with those stationed at the various grain
buying points in northern Minnesota and
the two Dakotas. Flax is reported as be
low the average from nearly every section
of the northwest.
Walter Thexton, in charge of the Min
neapolis office of the John Miller Grain
company, has been making a careful esti
mate of tne conditions during the past
three days. He has received reports from
200 grain men scattered all over the three
states. To these reports are added those
of traveling grain men who have given
much time to personal inspections of the
No damage from rust is reported to
date. In every sectipn of the northwest
the wheat fields show a rank growth of
straw. Wealher conditions gen
erally, have been favorable, but
there is danger from rust,
also from lodging unless the weather is
decidedly favorable from now on.
Southern Minnesota reports wheat pros
pects not above the average. The same
applies to coarse grains. This section also
complains of weeds and chinch bugs in the
flax crop, which is below the average.
The worst spot in the wheat fields of
northern Minnesota is in the Red River
valley counties, where surface water on
the lowlands has caused damage. The
crop there is so seriously injured that re
ports indicate less than half of Lhe average
On the North Dakota side of the Red
River valley the conditions are not so
serious. Wheat and coarse grains prom
ise better than an average crop for the
entire state. Reports on flax are very
discouraging. Many fields are being plowed
down. Flax there will yield less than half
an average crop.
Harvest will begin in South Dakota
soon. Reports from that state are gener
ally favorable. Conditions average better
in South Dakota than in the other two
Queer Pads in Food.
Almost ©very day some new fad in food
comes to light. We read of classes who
' live on meat alone, others that eat only j
vegetables or fish and each class believes i
that it. has the only key to perfect health, j
The latest fad is that human life can be
best maintained by food that itself is
living. Sensible people are inclined to
eat what they know to be scientifically
. pure and healthful, regardless of whether
I it is new or old, fashionable or unfashion
able. "Golden Grain Belt" beer is such a
liquid food; pure, because it is brewed
from purest 'barley malt and hops, and
healthful because it contains the strength
of bread and meat- Besides it is a deli

Slot Machine Investments.
Investments in slot machines through
the northwest represent several hundred
thousand dollars. This includes only those
machines which give the man who puts
his coin in the slot something for his
money. He is given anything from a bit
of classical music to a touch of electricity.
The music.boxes proved the best money
makers and are still among the leaders.
The weighing machine has done well in
many towns. The Bale of gum by the slot
contrivance has teen greatly increased,
but no machine has yet been invented that
will work satisfactorily as a cigar sales
The slot machine is a forcible lesson of
what saving the nickels will do. The re
ceipts from the music boxes in many
places have been wonderful. A traveling
man who does the northwest invested
$2,000 in music boxes two years ago. The
receipts paid for the boxes the first year.
The west throws its nickels recklessly.

PROMISING LIFE ENDS
Meningitis Cannes the Death of
Freeman D. Somerby.
Freeman D. Somerby, younger brother
of C. W. Somerby, assistant attorney
general, died last night at the home of his
mother, Mrs. P. D. Somerby, 1714 Ninth
avenue S. The cause of death was men
ingitis which had undoubtedly affected his
health for some time but which did not
assume a definite and severe form till
about three weeks ago upon his return
from New* Mexico.
Freeman Somerby was 25 years of age
and a young man of much promise. His
manly qualities were a prominent charac
teristic and he also possessed to a rare
degree the faculty of making sincere
.friends in all classes with which he came
in contact. Among eastern yachtsmen in
the New York clubs he was esteemed as a
pleasant companion and a good sailor,
while he found as many and as warm
friends among the ranchmen of Montana.
As a student in Burt Harwood's art
| classes in Minneapolis, he had gone far
| enough to display genuine talent, and
j though he never devoted himself serious
ly to art as a profession, he had executed
many very pleasant sketches. Last win
ter he was connected with the Minneapolis
General Electric company, until attacked
by the grip from whose effects he sought
relief in New Mexico.
The funeral will be held at 3 p. m.
Saturday from Westminster church, the
interment being at Lakewood.

AN ODD ACCIDENT ON THE FOURTH
Stray Bullet Strlkea a. Ring, Knoclc-
ins the Setting 100 Feet in
the i>unk. . *
The Fourth of July saw no more pecu
liar accident than that which betel Mrs.
C. A. Chambers, 1820 Portland avenue, in
Loring park on the evening of Indepen
dence Day. Mrs. Chambers had the un
usual misfortune of having a most beau
tiful solitaire, worth several hundred dol
lars, blown from its setting by a stray
bullet of 22 caliber, and hurled more than
a hundred feet from where she stood,
and the unusual good fortune of finding
the gem on the next day perfectly intact.
The bullet pierced Mrs. Chamber's hand
and left a painful wound, but it is heal
Mr. and Mrs. Chambers had gone out for
a stroll in the evening, just before dusk,
and had wandered over to the park. They
were standing by the lake watching the
swans, when Mrs. Chambers felt a sharp
sting on her left hand. At first she
thought it the bite of some insect, but
she soon felt the blood trickling from
the wound, and realized that she had been
struck by a bullet. The lead had entered
the back of the hand near the knuckle of
the middle finger and had made its exit
near the base of the thumb.
On the middle finger Mrs. Chambers
wore several rings, one of which was a
handsome solitaire diamond, worth be
tween $300 and $400, a present from her
husband. It was some time before she
noticed that the stone was missing The
wound was giving but little pain, and
they stopped to search for the diamond
As it grew darker they gave up the search
and repaired to a neighboring drug store
where the wound was washed and dressed.
In the morning she called on Dr. T. J.
Gray, who is caring for the wound.
The bullet seems to have been fired
from a point a little to the left and to
the rear of Mrs. Chambers, and at no
great distance, although neither Mr. nor
Mrs. Chambers heard the discharge of the
gun. It appears that the bullet had struck
something before it pierced Mrs. Cham
ber's hand, for there was a foreign sub
stance cf some kind on it which slightly
poisoned the wound.
After the wound was dressed by the
doctor the next morning, Mrs. Chambers
went back to the park and spent several
hours with a park policeman and several
small boys searching for the diamond.
They gave up the search, and Mrs. Cham
bers started homeward. She had gone
about a hundred feet from where she had
been standing, when she saw the gem
glistening in the grass some distance in
front of her. She hastened to it and picked
it up, expecting to find it shattered. To
her surprise and delight, she found that
it was not even chipped. }t lay 100 feet
or more from the place where the bullet
had struck its owner.

ORE RATE CASES GO OVER

The state railway and warehouse com
mission has .postponed further hearing up
on rate reductions on the ore lines until
Sept. 10, promising, in the meantime, to
reach a decision upon the meat of the
question, as presented by the attorneys of
the railways, viz.: Is the shipment of
iron ore interstate business or not?
At yesterday's hearing the state at
tempted to chow that at least the docks
were in the state of Minnesota, but failed
to do so. (Each -witness testified that they
were not, though within the riparian
If the commission decides that the con
tention of the railways is correct the at
tempt to Interfere with the tariffs in force
on the range roads will doubtless b©
dropped entirely, inasmuch as the ore
business comprises practically all of their
traffic. It is thought, however, that the
commission will rule against the roads
and thus shift the question to the supreme
court, where an authoratative decision caa
