St. Cloud Journal-Press: Frank
Day has convictions on the tariff
and subsidy, but when some Demo
crat objects on the ground that
they are putting a puncture in Gov.
Johnson's boom, Frank loses no time
in breaking into print with the con
solation that his views are just his
modest own, and that they ought
not to count against as ready an
adapter to circumstances as John A.
Says the Little Falls Transcript:
"Richard W. Sears of Sears, Roe
buck & Co., Chicago, has retired
from the business with the neat sum
of $25,000,000. Seventeen years ago
he was a telegraph operator at Red
wood Falls, Minn. At that time he
conceived the idea of selling $5.40
watches for $11.90 by mail. Won
der how much Morrison county
money is wrapped up in that sum.
It is hard to tell just how much but
there is some."
It is more than likely that several
Beltrami county dollars are tied up
in the amount.
LA. G. Rutledge
We were huddled in the parlor.
Not a soul inclined to chat.
For my mother and three sisters
Each had purchased a new hat.
(They'll be fearful things next winter
If they're worse than in the fall,
For the crowns are inches taller
And the prices, too, are tall.)
So we shuddered there in silence
While dear mother heaved a sigh,
Waiting for our darling father
To see what they had to buy.
Father came and gazed a moment.
Then he spokebut not in prayer.
"I am broke!" at last he shouted
As he staggered up the stair.
But his baby daughter whispered
As she took his empty hand:
"Styles will not be changed in halos
When we reach the golden strand."
Then he kissed the little maiden
For her soothing words of cheer,
And he spent the evening singing:
"Oh, I would not linger here."
COMPANY NOT RESPONSIBLE
Burglary Insurance Does Not Cover
Holdup of Cashier.
Louisville, Aug. 20.The Kentucky
court of appeals has handed down a
decision in favor of a casualty com
pany In a bank burglary case.
The policy exempted the company
from liability unless the money was
taken from the safe by felonious en
try by the use of tools or explosives.
In the case in point the cashier of the
bank was forced by the robbers to
open the safe at the point of a gon
and the bank sought to collect from
the insurance company, holding that
the contract was complied with be
cause the cashier was in a sense the
tool of the burglars.
The court admitted that this point
was correct, but held that the term
"tool" was different from that in
volved in the contract, which referred
to burglars' tools.

RICHER BY MANY MILLIONS
Rise in Oil 8tock Boosts Rockefel
New York, Aug. 20.John D. Rocke
feller's fortune accumulates despite
himself hy leaps and bounds of al
most hundreds of millions. The stock
of the Standard Oil company, of which
he owns about $25,000,000 par value,
Is selling at 712, the highest price it
has reached since the panic of 1907.
The stock has been rising steadily for
a long time and has advanced 322
points .from the low price of 390, at
which it sold on Nov. 4, 1907A\
This rise of 322 points represents a
gain in Rockefeller's fortune in less
than two years of $79,756,824.
The Standard Oil company pays
dividends of 40 per ceiit a year and
since 18b2, when the company was
formed, has paid to its stockholders
almost $600,000,000 in dividends, of

PROBE CITY'S EXPENDITURES
Mayor Busse of Chicago Names a
Chicago, Aug. 20.Mayor Busse has
appointed ten members of a commis
sion to investigate the expenditure of
the city's revenue. It is the desire of
the city officials to expend large sums
in the next few years in improving
the transportation facilities and in
beautifying the city and an accurate
account of the city's finances is de
sired before any move is made to in
crease the bonded indebtedness of the
municipality. Under a law passed by
the last legislature the city is empow
ered to increase its bonded debt by
$16,000,000. MOUNTED TROOPS
WT Activity Follows Night of Riot
ing and Disorder.
Pittsburg, Aug. 20.Mounted and
using their hickory riot clubs mem
bers of the Pennsylvania state con
stabulary are keeping strikers on the
move in the Pressed Steel Car com
pany strike zone at McKees Rocks. It
is estimated over 500 shots were fired
during the night and early morning by
strikers and sympathizers who had
gathered on the O'Donovan bridge
near the wonts During the firing the
troopers and other police remained
inside the mill, orders having been is
sued to take no action unless the
strikers attempted to enter the plant.
The constabulary was out on the
streets later, however, compelling the
strikers to keep moving. Troopers
took possession of the O'Donovan
bridge and efforts of the strikers to
congregate at any one point were met
with galloping horses and riot sticks.
Strike leaders explained the shoot
ing and disorder. They are of the
opinion that the workmen are being
held in the mills against their wishes.
The shooting, they say, was for the
purpose of bringing the constabulary
from the plant to the bridge and thus
give the new men an opportunity to
escape from the works.
Later in the day alleged strike sym
pathizers opened fire on the steamer
P. M. Pfeil, which was bringing fifty
imported men across the Ohio river
to the mill. Over 100 shots were di
rected at the steamer No one was
injured, although many or the Dullets
struck the boat.

past year the department of agricul

over 2,000 carefully selected plants
