CHAS. L. ROOS, Managing Editor
fl^:^Wedne&da\, June 15, 18b7.
Some time ago the REVIEW called at
tention to the happy alliance that had
apparently been entered into by our
state department of public instruction
and the VV. C. T. U. It is now our
painful duty to announce that the love
lv union has come to a sudden end by
divorce even before the completion of
the traditional honeymoon. -State Supt
Kiehle had at first favored the trash
labeled as "Pathfinder Series" aud
.had thus secured the coveted "cordial
co-operation" of the W. 0. T. U. A
little reflection, however, convinced
Jum that, as a public official charged
nvith a plain duty by a plain law, there
was but one course that hecould honor
ably take, and he decided to take it.
Although, to quote his own words, he
was atifirst strongly impressed with
the value of the Pathfinder aeries, sub
sequent investigation showed good
grounds for their rejection." When it
became-known that Mr. Kiehle bad
changed his^views concerning the Path
tinders, Mrs. Hobart, the president of
the W.~ T. U., and an individual
traveling in the joint employ of that
association andithePathfinders' publish
ers, publicly accused him of acting
from interested motives. The only in
ference tnat can be drawn from their
remarks is tfoat, if the Pathfinder series
is not chosen,, it will be because bribery
is at work and Supt. Kiehle has been
warned that in this case he is listed for
removal. He has asked for an tinvesti
.gation in this matter, and we do not
doubt that the cowardly charges made
against him will redound with tenfold
'force on those who thus disgraced them
elves. While Supt. Kiehle deserves
censure for inviting the "eordial co-op
eration*' of a private organization that
5s known to be opposed to the spirit of
existing laws, his subsequent course
clearly demonstrates that it is his inten
tion not to allow himself to be used as
the tool of any faction and we feel con
fident that, as a member of the commis
sion, he will honestly endeavor to per
form to the best of his ability the exact
duties imposed by the law In so do
ing, the two principles laid down by the
Pioneer Press may be taken as the saf
est possible guide: "First, the spirit
and intent of the law should be carried
out to the letter, by adopting a book
whieh would instruct children in the el
ements of physiology and hygiene, in
cluding a special reference to the effects
of stimulants and narcotics and, sec
ond, our children shonld be taught
neither more nor less than the exact
truth, as laidjdown by the investigations
of scientific men. It goes without say
ing thai the latter principle, whatever
text-book may be adopted, will lay
down the rule that total abstinence is
safe for everybody and ought to be the
absolute rule for the young." Even
in a state in which prohibition is the
law, the W. C. T. U. would forfeit the
right to that C. in its name by attempt
ing to poison the filial affections of the
young and slandering those who act
in accordance with the spirit of the
Albrecht I. of Germany was a very
unjust emperor. He could not see
things as other people saw them. This
can perhaps be explained by the fact
that he was one-eyed. He lost his ej
in a singular wajT,
characteristic of the
good old times. In 1295, during the
rule of his predecessor and rival, Adol
phus of Nassau, he attended the diet at
Nurnberg. Being indisposed one day,
he believed that he had been poisoned
by his political enemies. He was im
mediately subjected to the treatment
then customary in such cases. One of
his eyes was destroyed, and he was
hung up by his feet for some time, that
the poison might flow out with his
blood. Surviving the operation, he
firmly believe4?$ha1j,his life had been
saved by it. V%L
It is reported that M. Goblet is pained
to learn that Americans pronounce his
name "goblet," To this the Louis
ville Courier-Journal remarks that "he
ought to hear us say Goethe once."
We think that foreigners ought to be
satisfied with our pronunciation of their
proper names so long as they persist in
horribly mispronouncing nearly every
American name that comes under their
observation. Just think of having the
name of the father of our country pro
nounced Weshington by eminent Ger
man historians, or of hearing them
speak of Michigan, Tchicaigo, Boofai
lo, Oheeo, Detroah, Desmoeen and
The Pioneer Press says if the great
v%32,000,00 rubber combination, recent
ly organized to control the rubber busi
ness, will only put a little more of the
l^uice of siphonia elastica into rubber
shoes,the rubber-wearing public will not
kick so much against the combination.
The present rubber shoe made of can-
vas, coal tar aud the one-hundreth part
of a grain of caoutchouc is a first-class
It is a fact not generally known that
Jules Grevy, the president of the French
Republic, was, before his election to
the highest office in the gift of his na
tion, an ardent opponent of the presi
dential system, which he considered a
copy of monarchical forms. Current his
itory does not record whether he has
changed his views on that point 9&&JS
The Philadelphia Press says that, if
it is true that all roads lead to Rome,
Father McGlynn may have to make up
hie -mind to tare to the woods or cut
across lots. The Press need not fear
that Dr. McGlynn will trouble land
owners in just this way. %iw I

It is said that
tween his teeth. It seems that his
mouth must have some kind of work to
do all the time.
A mathematical calculation has
-shown that if the muscles of a man were
relatively as strong as those of a flea,
he could throw a book-agent two miles.
The same calculation might also show
that the Agent could throw his voice
and the book at the man from a dis
tance of four miles. What then ?Ex.
Cork bricks were some time ago in
troduced in several European localities.
The material used is a mixture of cork,
lime and silica, and is said to be per
fectly durable. It is guaranteed not to
rot. It has the advantage of keeping
out heat as well as cold. Besides us
ing it for walls, it may be nailed up to
laths as a covering under roofs, or for
ceilings and under-floors. These cork
bricks are reported as being an excel
lent preventative of damp.
At the spring election held in the
village of Lamberton, the question of
license or no license was voted on.
On counting the ballots it was found
that there was a majority of one in
favor of no license. The saloons closed
in compliance with the vote then taken,
and have remained closed until Satur
day last. In the mean time notice by
publication for a hearing before the
village council was given on the claim
that one vote given against license, at
the election, was an illegal one, that
the party votiug was not a naturalized
citizen. J. M. Thompson of Sleepy
Eye appeared before the council as law
yer for the party demanding license and
Mr. Forbes of Marshall, in behalf of tne
no license party. After the question was
argued with other side issues, a vote
was taken, when the following members
voted in favor of granting license v.z.
R. Morton, Martin Anderson and Aug
ust Holznagel. H. J. Smith Pres. of the
council, and Lewis Chester, Recorder,
being in the minority did not vote. Li
cense was granted but the President of
the council refuses to sign the license,
and so the matter now stands. One sa
loon opened on Saturday, but what fu
ture action will be taken in the matter
we are unable to say at present.-COM-
At the Business Men's meeting held
at Mankato last Tuesday and Wednes
day the following resolutions were
That the system of transportation
heretofore in TOgue was on an unnatu
ral basis, favoring a few localities and
was destructive of tne general distri
bution of wealth.
That all common carriers should re
spect the rights of the public without
That this associatiou demands a ra
dical reform in the system of transpor
tation, giving equal rates to all persons
and places based upon distance without
reference to terminal points or jobbing
That we f.ivor the absolute enforce
ment of the interstate and state law and
oppose the suspension of the long and
short haul clause.
That we call the attention of the state
commission to the freedom of traffic
law and ask them to allow no unjust
transfer charges, excluding the people
of Minnesota from Lake Superior mar
That Lake Superior the Missis
sippi are naturefs
greatand highways and
any attempt to deprive inland towns of
access to them on reasonable terms
should be severely condemned.
That the proper basis of rates is reas
onable profit and interest on the actual
cost of building and operating the roads,
and when the income is more than this
a reduction of the rates should be made.
That we call on the commission to in
vestigate the matter of watered stock
and estimate the actual capital invested.
That we recognize Minneapolis, St,
Paul, and Duluth as points at which
business interests of this limitless em
pire naturally center, but that rates
continue to be so exorbitant as to pro
hibit waterway transportation from
them, which is a crime against the peo
^mr *A? i
That less than unequivocal concession
of these just demands would be a trav
esty on justice, and that we pledge de
termined opposition to overthrow these
wrongs now impoverishing the people,
depopulating the rural districts and
driving manufacturing anb business en
terprises to distant business centers.
That while the terminal points of the
roads and union depots are of undoubt
ed benefit they should be owned only
by the stockholders of the roads usitg
them and not by a ring of managers
who note to themselves a large per
centage of the income of the roads as
rental, thus becoming as much para
sites as a fast freight line.

One of our state normal schools an
nounces in a circular that it has "taken
a stand DO other school has been rash
enough.to attempt." It might be better
to be less rash and a little more con
siderate, even for advertising purposes.
The next legislature ought to provide
for a little ventilation to remove the gas
which is rapidly accumulating in our
state institutions. Tne spirit of self
sufficiency which for several years has
been pervading the atmosphere of
state schools, is inconsistent with true
scholarship. The mere fact that the
St. Cloud normal school offers "a larg
er amount of professional work than is
offered in any other normal school in
the United States" is meaningless to
those who measure work by its quality
rather than by its quantity. The time
may come when the head of that insti
tution will perceive that even a normal
school must stoop to oonqver.
