SKATING ON THIN IGE
Altho no accidents have been re
ported to date, the youth of Minne
apolis are taking serious chances on
the ice. Owing to the long continued
fall weather the skating season has
been delayed and the "kids" have
been waxing impatient to try a few
Dutch rolls and figure eights. Most of
the lakes and ponds have frozen and
some of the smaller ones are strong
enough to stand a light weight, but
hardly strong enough to be safe for
more than a few skaters.
Lake of the Isles, which is well
sheltered and quiet, is as smooth as
glass and many of the youngsters in
the neighborhood have been out. The
north arm is stronger than the open
part of the lake, but at that is hardly
safe. The police department is dis*
couraging the sport as much as pos
sible, fearing that a few venturesome
ones may try the open lake or that
too many will collect at some one spot,
and that there will be a fatal accident.
If the snow stays to prevent dust
from settling on the ice the lake
should offer rare sport in a few days.
The lake was open when the snow fell
and as a result froze as smooth as
glass, with no scaly or choppy places.
The larger lakes are freezing about
the edges and if the cold weather con
tinues will close up rapidly. The pond
in Lormg park is frozen, but no skat
ing is allowed yet. The park board is
allowing skating on only one of its
ponds, that in Van Cleve park, and
is doing everything in its power to
i prevent skating on the other lakes,
altho the lakes are so large that it
it is impossible to cover them.
There has been some ice-boating on
Lake of the Isles and Calhoun, but
it is considered dangerous.
MAIL ORDER HOUSES
IN SHOES OF SALOONS
May mail-order liquor houses solicit
tmsmess in prohibition districts?
This is the question which has been
put up to Governor John A. Johnson
by W. T. Maynard, a resident of Twin
Valley. Mr. Maynard says that Twin
iValley at the last election voted "no-
I license,'' that as a result all the sa
i loons have been closed and the sale of
liquor in stores of the town is a thing
of the past. But since, the village has
been flooded with circulars from a big
mail-order liquor house of St. Cloud.
Catalogs have made the acquisition of
bottles of "tanglefoot" of just the
brand desired, a very easy thing. The
^nail-order house has done a great busi
ness at Twin Valley, and as a result
drunks are just as numerous as when
the town had open saloons, asserts
the governor's correspondent.
Mr. Maynard says as the people of
the place have voted for prohibition,
that prohibition should be the rule,. He
asked the governor to take action in
i the matter, and da what he can to
prevent further sale of liquor by the
*|1 St. Cloud mail-order liquor house.

TO SHDT COUNTRY?
MOVEMENT IS ON FOOT IK HEN
Respectable Property Holders and Resi
dents Object to Their Towns Becom
ing Regular Sunday Battle Grounds
for City Toughs and "Booze-Fight
ers"Sheriff Will Be Asked to Act.
Residents of the country districts of
Hennepin county are said to be quietly
lining up their anti-Sunday saloon
friends and neighbors preparatory to
starting a saloon crusade in the coun
try. At present the saloons in Rob
binsdale, Golden Valley, Keegan 's Lake,
Medicine Lake and a few scattered
roadhouses are open on Sunday, being
out of reach of the Minneapolis Sun
day closing rule, and reap a rich re
ward for the trouble and extra work of
passing out intoxicants of all sorts to
thirsty Minneapolitans and country
An organization, it is said, is form
ing nuietly and will soon be ready to
begin an active campaign against these
outside resorts. The membership is
composed of property holders and resi
dents who object to their districts be
coming regular Sunday battle grounds
for "booze-fighters" from the city.
While they are willing to have the sa
loons in the neighborhood, the results
of four closed Sundays in Minneapolis
have shown that the country Sunday
saloon will have to follow the city sa
As the first step in the movement the
sheriff will be asked to exercise his
authority and order the country resorts
closed. If the sheriff refuses to act
the cases will be laid before the county
attorney, who will be furnished with
evidence and asked to proceed against
the resort keepers. In the organized
villages the same plan will be followed,
but the offenders will be taken before
the local authorities. In Robbinsdale
there is a citizens' committee that will
handle the situation there and will seek
to close the four saloons of the town.
If the regular arrest and fines every
Monday morning will not produce re
suits, more drastic measures will be re
While the ~overnor has the authority
to order these places closed and to order
the sheriff to see that they are kept
closed under the state law, it is thought
that he could hardly single out Henne
pin county alone for such a movement.
The leaders in the movement are in
earnest, however, and say that they will
keep at it until they win. If the mat
ter is not settled this winter for good
and all it is feared that lige in these
country districts will be unbearable
If the country resorts keep open dur
ing summer while the city is shut tight
there is reason to believe that there
will be a general exodus to the rural
joints each Sunday. Men and women
from the lowest classes of society will
simply transfer their orgies to the green
fields and open air and make the coun
try Sunday a general nuisance. Even
with the city saloons open, as they have
been in the past, there is generally
enough disorder and debauchery to
sicken those who wish for a decently
quiet Sunday. It is therefore feared
that with the additional crowds of
toughs, sports and questionable women
who would be attracted now that the
city is closed, orgies and jousts of the
worst description would be an every

A dinner was given in their honor

attended by the officerB of both lodges
and other prominent members of the

Mr. Andrews did not arrive, owing to
a railroad delay, until 11 o'clock, but
was met at the depot and escorted to
the lodgeroom, when an impromptu le
ception was held, some 200 Elks being
present. In the couise of a witty ad
dress he told a new story on Minne
apolis. He was in Spain, he said, when
the cruiser Minneapolis arrived with
some government astronomers to view
the eclipse of the moon. Illustrating
th? ignorance of the Spaniards con

A negro sailor, left in charge of the

Realizing that he was regarded as a
personage of importance, the darkey
answered inquiries as to his official
title by declaring that he was mayor of
Minneapolis, se_t by the people of his
town aS their head man to take charge
of the expedition, and the next day his
portrait, labeled "the mayor of Mni
neapolis," appeared in the local paper.
Mr. Clay, in his address, utilized his
opportunity to work up enthusiasm for
the Denver convention. That city, he
said, would spen'd $60,000 in entertain
ing the Elks next June and was pre
paring some novel features for the oc
casion, which would include- among
others the presence of 1,000 Ute Indians
from the frontier and a mammoth

**0B SANTA GLAUS
CHILDREN ALREADY APPEAL TO
Little Believers in Christmas Saint Sly
ly Drop Letters into Mail Boxes from
Whence, Unknown to Their Writers,
They Are Taken to the Dead Letter
Office. Letters for the elusive Santa Olaus
are beginning to make their appearance
at the local postoffice.
In spite of the fact that none of the
thousands of messages sent by mail to
the merry, white-whiskered old man
who spends all his time at a workshop
at the north pole making toys for dis
tribution Dec. 25, is answered, every
year +h letters increase in number. Few
children seem to be aware that the right
way to get the contents of a letter di
rect to Santa ClauB is to burn it in an
open fireplace, anfd let the never-to-be
seen brownies carry the message in
smoke from the chimney, direct to the
owner of the historic flying reindeer.
The mails are the source thru which the
letters of parents are carried in safety,
and tne youngsters seem to prefer to
slyly post their letters to Santa Claus
than to send them by the smoke route.
Influx Only Begun.
Letters to Santa Claus will continue
to increase in their daily number at the
postoffce till Christmas. If Santa
Claus does not appear at the general de
livery window and claim his communica
tions within two weeks after they are
respectively received at the postoffice,
then they will be forwarded to the dead
letter office at Washington. There the
cold letter of the law says they must
remain for several weeks more in hopes
that the addressee will put in an appear
ance. At the end of that time they
are opened to see if they contain any
valuables, and if not are destroyed.
Santa Claus letters are most frequent
ly addressed with lead pencil, and in*
many cases the writers fail to put
stamps on the envelopes, evidently hav
ing no fear that Santa Claus will take
offense at being asked for postage at
the north pole end of the line.

Northwestern Railroad Camps
Stores Violating State Law.
State Dairy and Food Commissioner
E. K. Slater," has sent an agent to the
northwestern part? of the state to look
after violations of the oleomargarin
law. Several railroad camps as well
as stores are serving out the colored
oleomargarin instead of the pure ex
tract of cream. The departmetn offi

goes up in the fall there is more of the
oleo sold. Mr. Slater says that there
is scarcely any oleomargin palmed
off for butter in the biig cities and else
where in the southern part of the state.
At the close of the dairy course at
the state farm school the department
will send out the whole force of cream

look into the milk and cream supply

will help the regular milk inspectors
in this as they finish the work of the
