Wagner and Professor Koemg, accom

later a more extended visit was made
to the big Adams school, where special
attention was given to the first primary
rooms and the eighth grade. To the
older pupils Mr. Wagner spoke with en

towards their education al opportunities.
The school choir of 600 voices, which
sang patriotic songs, aroused Mr. Wag

them some fine patriotic thoughts.

Outside of that (and many good citizens
do not agree with that view of the case),

splendid safeguard against extravagance,
poor business methods and shifty devices,

MRS. VAN CLEVE COMMENTS O N
VANDALISM A FT. SNELLING.
Pioneer Resident of Minnesota Gives In-
teresting Reminiscences Concerning
Vine-Covered Tower That Has Been
"Fixed Up" to Look Like a Bail-
"It's unbecoming to modernize
ruins," saM Mrs. Charlot te Van Cleve,
as she gazed disapprovingly at the pho
tograph of the neatly cemented round
tower at Fort Snelling, taken after its
recent "renovation." "The old place
would look as unnatural fixed up like
that as an old woman like me would,
dressed like the young people of today,
and attempting to appear like them.
"We are too prone to fixing things
up and trying to make them look like
new in America. W have few enough
historic ruins and we do not preser ve
what we have, at least not in their orig
inal and interesting state. When a
building has become a ruin thru circum
stanc es and is interesting and signifi
cant as it is, why can't we be content
to let it remain a ruin. There is
something that stirs the heart, the mind
and the memory in ruins.''
A Mrs. Van Cleve looked from the
picture of the tow er in 1880 to that of
today she said: "Yestha certainly
is desecration, and the building in its
modern guise cann ot be of enough use
to compensate for the loss of historic
interest. I Europe such a thing would
never have been thought of, but unfor
tunately we have not the same regard
for old' things.
I suppose there is no else who re
members Fort Snelling as far back as I
do," Mrs. Van Cleve went on remini
scently. "You know I was only a few
weeks' old when I arrived at Fort Snell
ing with my family in the summer of
1819. I was born at Prairie du Chien
as my father's regiment was on its way
to the mouth of the Minnesota river, to
build a fort there, and that fo rt was
afterward called Fort Snelling. These
towers and the old quarters are part of
my earliest recolections. From the old
watchtower on its perch between the
rivers, my brothers and I watched the
smoke of the first steamboat to arrive
at Ihe fort, and I remember very well
how excited we and everyone else were.
I think I could go over every part
of the old fort now. Last time I was
down I did go over the old buildings,
into my father's old quarters, and into
the very room where I remember sleep
ing in a cradle. General Morris, who
was commandant, went around with me,
and he said he found out more about
the fort than he had ever known before.
"That was a very interesting visit,
for I took with me a, visitor who had
not seen the place in nearly fourscore
years. was Andrew Tully, my foster
brother, who was rescued from the In
dians a few vears after the fort was es
tablished. His father and mother had
been murdered and Andrew was given
to my father. When we went east,
rrien ds took him and kept him, and he
had never revisited our early home until
we were both white-haired old people."
Altho Mrs. Van Cleve's lameness,
caused by a recent injury, keeps her
from getting about much, she retains
all of her active interest in life and en
joys greatly recalling er early days in
