CONFERENCE OF CHARITIES
The seventeenth Minnesota state
'conference of Charities and correction,
to be held at St. Paul, Saturday to
Tuesday. November 14, 15, 16 and 17,
is attracting unusual attention. This
is due partly to the fact that the state
association of county commissioners
is to hold its annual meeting at the
same time and place.
The object of the conference is 'to
discuss the problem of charities and
correction, to improve the methods of
dealing with dependents and del
inquents and to disseminate informa
tion relating to these subjects. It is
a practical school in these lines of
work. It promotes economy in the ex
penditure of public money while in
creasing efficiency in the administra
tion of jails, alms-house, lock-ups,
hosiptals, asylums, etc., and at the
same time undertakes to lessen the
need for such intitutions by influenc
ing home conditions and broadening
tbe common school course. There
will be discussions upon how to pre
feeble mindedenss, how to pre
vent insanity, how, through the ex
tension of the juvenile court and
otherwise, to prevent crime, how to
and cure consumption, the
valneof social settlements in preven
tive and constructive work, the
eaanomic and social value of health
regulations and health officers, and tnp
moral and social strength imparted

CHEELEY TURNS DEER OVER.
Foley Independent: C. Cheeley, the
well known Morrillite, brought a deer
into town Monday, which he has had
on his farm in Morrill for some time,
and turned it over to Deputy *Game
Warden Indrehus who has placed it on
a farm near Folety where he will keep
it until arrangements can be made for
shipping it to the state game and fish
commission at St. Paul where it will
be disposed of according to law. Mr.
Cheeley's reason for transferring the
animal to the commission is that un
der the law he could not obtain a per*
mit whereby he could legally hold it.
