i LETTER TO EDITOR
THE MAN WHO DOES THINGS
Editor Day Book: In your editor
ial you tell why you use simple words,
and that the larger vocabulary a man
has the less he is understood; and
that is correct Fine sounding speech
and carefully selected words ancf
phrases will ont save us from sin,
shame and poverty. As the progres
sive business man knows that it is
not what a man has learned in this
college or that university, where he
graduated from, but what can he do,
what can he do in the field of labor,
how can he use his brains, even
though he may never have had a col
lege or university education, if he can
apply his mentality to a -certain busi
ness, if he has studied and been ob
servant in the school of life, then he
is the man who will and does win in
the "battle of life" where the highly
educated college man will starve.
Our minds must be concentrated to
the necessities that make up this life,
our thought directed to our present
need; learn to conquer our own na
ture, learn to control and govern
passion and guard our body, learn to
live and keep up the conditions most
conducive to the enjoyment of per
fect health whence spring, perfect,
health-conscious .ideas that lead us
through this life gloriously, that
alone makes life enjoyable. Your
editorials are feeding hundreds of
thinking minds, minds which will
grow' and expand and, like the vine,
bear good fruit and pass it on, that
you may for years to come, continue
to brush the cobwebs from thousands
of brains is the good word sent to
you by Metz.
"VAGRANT MONK" IS SHOT
St. Petersburg, July 13. Gregory
Raspotine, known as the vagrant
monk, who is said to have exerted
hypnotic control over the czar and
czarina, was shot by a woman yes
terday and Is believed to be mortally
wounded, though no details are per
mitted to pass the strict censorship
established by the czar.
Raspotine, a peasant, had a talent
for prophesy and mysticism. He first
appeared here four years ago and
though elderly, he possessed strong
influence over women. His midnight
Erayer meetings were attended by a
evy of young girls.
For some time past Raspotine has
conducted spiritualistic seances at
the palace and his sway over the
czarina has caused comment.

young St. Paul girl who was found
unconscious from bichloride of mer

When she was revived she said her
sweetheart, Joe Benson, St Paul, had

against him.

"I still love him," is her explanation.

in Germany. The first of these offi-
cials was appointed in 1903.
