ASSOCIATION WANTS AOOESS
Penny Savings System for Children,
Successful in Other Cities, and Al
ready in Operation in Libraries and
Branches, Is Under Consideration by
The Provident Savings Fund associa
tion of Minneapolis wants to extend
the field of its labors and include the
public schools. Miss Grace Livingston,
cashier of the association, appeared be
fore the- school board at its meeting
Tuesday afternoon and asked the mem
bers to install a sayings system in the
schools. Up to this time the 'work has
been confined to the public library, its
North and South Side branches, ctiurcb-,
es and settlements, and during the
summer there have been branches in.
the vacation schools. The board will
act upon the matter at its monthly
meeting in September.
The object of the Savings fund as
sociation is to inculcate a sense of
thrift and enterprise, into childish
minds by providing for the children
an easy way to save pennies, dimes and
dollars. Cards with stamps attached
serve the small depositors as bank
books, stamps of different colors being
given in exchange for the different de
nominations. The funds collected are
turned over to some savings bank.
The record for the eighteen months
ending April 1 showed that 1,074 de
positors opened accounts. The total
isavin'gs amounted to $1,358.42. One
boy purchased his winter suit with his
savings two others bought overcoats.
A brother and sister have saved $14
toward the purchase of a cow, and a
small newsboy has $10 saved toward a
business college education.
Some Begin Early.
The youngsters range in age from 5
or 6 to 18 years, but Miss Livingston
has known depositors to be as young
as 4 months.
The cashier calls at each of the four
teen stations at stated times to collect
deposits and give out stamps as re
ceipts. The little people CTOWU around
her, making delighted comments, and
sometimes, with a great show of secre
cy, ask her advice about spending the
earnings for a birthday gift for moth
er. At. one time two little girls -were
in doubt as to whether to buy a gilt
medallion frame or a carpetsweeper,
but finally they were prevailed upo
the sweeper. Two volunteen
visitors call at homes designated by
the cashier, and in this way help fam
ilies in poor circumstances in a way
they could not help themselves. Be
sides stopping little leaks in the family
expenditures, the system stimulates
larger plans and cultivates a habit of
looking forward to tomorrow.
OLDEST PIANO TURNS UP
PIONEER INSTRUMENT BROUGHT
IN BY BOAT FALLS INTO HANDS
OF LOCAL DEALER.
The oldest pianS in Minneapolis has,
after much, wan Weiring and varying for
tune, at last found "a resting place in
the rpoms of the BrooksrEvaWs Piano
company on Nicollet avenue. It is an
old-fashioned Steinway square, the rose

the ivory keys chipped and yellowed
with the passing of years, and Worn by

melody from it.

the spring it finally arrived at the Win

when the proprietors met -with reverses
and elosea the hotel, there was much
discussion over the possession' of the
piano. Ownership lay between J. 0.

WILL TEACH AT SITKA
MARY E. LOGAN, FORMERLY OF
THIS CITY, WILL BECOME MIS-
SIONARIES TO INDIANS.
Mary E. Logan, who resided in Min
neapolis many years, leaves Chicago,
her present hSme, Sept. 1, to become a
missionary to the Indians at Sitka,
Alaska. This is in tardy fulfillment of
a plan which, dates back nearly a score
of years. The work at Sitka is three
sided, mission, hospital and industrial.
The last two departments are linked to
Minneapolis in a threefold sense: the
hospital was built in 1878 by a gift
from Mrs. Bnssel Sage and a bequest
from an honored member of Westmin
ster church Dr. Nellie Shulean of Min
neapolis was head of the hospital until
1904, and Mrs. M. F. Schuknect, also of
this city, has been one of the matrons
of the industrial school seven years.
The industrial school -was founded in
1878, is coeducational and is the largest
one of the kind in Alaska. There are
representatives of twelve tribes among
the pupils. The present enrollment is
132. Miss Logan's appointment to the
Sitka school is a matter of sincere con
gratulation among a large circle of
friends in Minneapolis.
