Mrs Thurston's illness dates only from
last Monday, when she entertained the
guild at her home. Her strength failed
her while in the midst of her duties as
hostess, an dshe was compelled to excuse
herself and lie down. She grew worse
rapidly, but at first it was thought she
was merely excited and would soon re
cover. Late last week, however, it was
seen that the case was serious, and her
mother was summoned from Franklin, ar

Mr. and Mrs. Thurston were married
last September and they came immediate

TROUBLE AT LOUISVILLE
Campbell and Hart Jump Baseball Team
as Eesult of Bald.
News received in Minneapolis today
indicates that George Tebeau, owner
of the Louisville team of the American
Association, is having his troubles once
more. Campbell and Hart are said to
have jumped the team, and big offers
are said to have been made to Kennedy,
Hallam, Kerwin and H'ouser.
The tampering with Tebeau's players
is alleged to be the work of the Ken
tucky state league and is part of a raid
?lanned against the Louisville magnate,
he clubs getting the two jumping play
ers are not known, but as they are
among the best men in the Louisville
team that organization will be sadly
crippled. The leaving qf the other four
men named would mean the virtual dis

IN MAY WHEAT
SHORTS CAUGHT IN A FIVE-OBNT
Price Too High for Milling Interests,
and if Shorts Have Covered I Will
Drop Back QuicklyGates Might
Have Made Good if He Had TJnder
May wheat went on the -rampage to
day. Caught wrong on the market the
frightened shorts nought in and the
price rose 5 cents. The screws were put
on and the bears squeezed unmercifully.
At $1.09% the covering really began
and at $1.14 the market was hard as
It is a case of a squeeze pure and
simple. Millers can not take wheat at
$1.14 and make flour of it with profit,
against present conditions elsewhere,
but it is not a question of what millers
can do. Traders have sold May wheat
short and cannot buy it back, for no
one has it for sale. To buy any they
have to bid for it to a point high
enough to draw some out.
If one could tell what the short inter
est in May amounts to he could call the
turn on the market. If the shorts have
covered, a break May is to be ex
pected. If, as is the rumor, there is
still a half-million May short, the price
may jump another 5 cents very easily.
What Might Have Been.
The maddest man in the United
States, it is said, is John W. Gates.
Weeks ago he threw up the sponge in
las corner fight, and Chicago May
crashed from $1.16 to 86% cents. To
day it has worked half way/" ba'ckto
96 centsand eveiythmg indicates that
Gates could have put the deal thru.
Had he known the source of the selling
on the day he let go, and had he not
suspected that the wheat coming on
the market was from treacherous asso
ciates, when in leality it was from
Bigelow, the embezzling banker-plunger
of Milwaukee, there might have been
a different story.
July Works Upward.
July wheat is very strong, Minne
apolis July selling today to $1.03%,
against low point of 90%c. This is
because of light stocks and rains in
Texas. That state does not raise much
wheatonly 12,000,000 bushels last
year. BuBt she cuts it first and sends
it to market first, and if it should con
tinue to rain in Texas and delay the
crop, Chicago July might easily run
up 10 cents, for Chicago bears have
sold July short, as they always do, ex
pecting to jget this early Texas wheat

MADE DOUBLY SURE
OF HIS OWN DEATH
Terje Tharalson, a north Minneapo

Tharalson had apparently planned the
deed and went about it coolly and
calmly. Finding a point where his
body would fall into deep water he
shot himself thru the head. His body
fell as he had planned, but the pre
caution was Unnecessary as the shot
made death instantaneous.

been so good to me. Kindest regards
to Shreyer and Voegeli."

His Honor on the DefensiveShe In

Bide Her Bicycle.
Attired in a handsome black gown
that would grace any social leader,
Louise Williamson, the cyclienne who
attracts enormous crowds on Nicollet
avenue by her picturesque poses, de
fended herself in the municipal court
today against a charge of disorderly
In less than two minutes after she
took the stand she had the court on the
defensive and Judge Wait was busy
looking for a chance to draw the case
to a close.
Patrolman Long, who arrested her,
said that while she was standing at Nic
ollet avenue and Fourth street the small
boys laughed. In her excitement, he
said, she knocked a woman to the side
walk and struck an urchin over the head
with her decorated qane.
Judge Waite attempted to get at the
bottom of the case, but at every move
he was cornered by the defendant.
"What kind of a court is this that
allows a charge to be trumped up
against a woman of my standing?" she
said. I am not guilty. The woman
fell down when jostled in the crowd."
"That may be so," said the court,
"but they say"
I don't care what they say," re
plied the defendant.
Here the court paused a moment and
then continued. "They say that your
manner of dress is peculiar and that the
crowds are attracted when you stand on
"Do I look queer to you?"
And again the court was forced to
take advantage of his position and
avoid a reply. While he was thinking,
she occupied the time to advantage.

At this juncture the court became
stern and commanded the defendant to
keep quiet. She was given warning to
attract no more crowds and the case was
continued until November. Until that
time she must obey the court's orders.
"Oh, I suppose I can obey the or-
ders," she said, "but I don'tHke that
way of doing business. You mtend to
keep in suspense for six months, and in
the meantime the officers can trump up
false charges against me. I don
like it." A

lighting effectsjthe show is a leader. The
songs, altho a little old. are well sung.

and is replete with amusing situations.
Jeanette Guichard has an excellent so

with graceful ease. With the assistance
of the chorus! she makes some of the
older song hits go like new.
There are also some exceptional features
in the olio. Jack and Al Cruet have a

Rev. W. H. Lingle of the province
of Hunan in China, has been spending
a few days in Minneapolis and St.
Paul and has made several addresses
on conditions in that great empire.
Mr. Lingle was the first European to
take up his residence in this province,
which was the last to admit foreign
ers and missionaries. This was eleven
years ago, and for five years he was
the only foreigner in the province,
which was hostile to all foreign influ
ences. Now there are 100 missionaries
working in this territory and the prov
ince is wide open. The railroad, tele
phone and telegraph have all been ac
cepted, prejudice against them having
Mr. Lingle today gave an account of
this great interior province and of its
yielding to the forces of western civil
ization and learning. "Hunan," he
said, "is about the size of Minnesota
and supports a population of 20,000,000.
The capital, Changsha, is now an open
port and three steamship lines con
trolled by foreigners connect it with

Complete Change of Front.
"There has been a complete change
of attitude of the Chih'ese towards for
eigners since the Boxer rebellion. They
may not be any more friendly in their
hearts, but that experience taught them
the power of the foreigners and they
respect power. They found their meth
ods inadequate to cope with westerners
and this has brought a complete change
in theiT ideas. The value of western
learning is now as much appreciated as
formerly it was scorned. The course
of study leading up to the government
examination for the civil service has
been completely revised to conform
largely to western educational ideas.
The schools in all the principal cities in
clude these new studies and everyone
competent to teach them is pressed'in'to
service. Still the supply of instruct
ors is wholly inadequate and the schools
are obliged to depend on the use of
textbooks in the hands of native teach
ers. The presses supplying these books
are hopelessly behind.
Learning from Japan.
"Not only is every effort being made
to supply the new demand for western
learning at home, but the goverriment
is sehtimg away thousands of students
to learn the methods of foreign schools
that they may return and impart them
as the Japanese students did in Japan
a decade or two ago. In Japan alone
are 3,000 government scholars, and in
inviting China to semi these young men
to her schools, and sharing with them
her advantages, Japan is laying China
under great obligations, and forming
close ties of interest between the coun
tries. I think it a great pity that the
United States did not adopt a similar
policy. It would have had a splendid
effect in China, and been greatly to our
advantage. It is one of the misfor
tunes entailed by our Chinese exclusion
act, that our hands should be tied in
Mr. Lingle is greatly interested in
the outcome of the Eusso-Japanese
war and greatly desires to see Japan
win. This, he believes, would mean a
rgeat future for the Chinese and Japan

would presage the overthrow of the
