Prof. Lugger Dead.
Prof. Otto Lugger, the state ento
mologist and zoologist, died May 21 at
his home in St. Anthony Park.
Prof. Lugger was born 56 years ago
last October, in Hagen, Westphalia,
Germany. He received a part of his
education in Germany, but in 1866 came
to America. He graduated later from
the Johns Hopkins university, taking
a special course in entomology and
zoology. For fourteen years he has
been professor of entomology at the
Minnesota School of Agriculture, and
before that he was entomologist in the
department of agriculture in Washing
ton. He is the author of several valu
able scientific works, and has been a
frequent contributor to scientific liter
There were local showers early in
the week in Hubbard, Becker, Clay,
Norman and Polk counties, and in the
extreme southeast. These showers ex
tended over small areas, and they were
generally light. In the Red Eiver val
ley, oats, barley, flax and millet are
being sown as the land is prepared for
them. South of the Red River valley
the planting of •corn and potatoes has
been going on during the week, and in
many places it is finished early plant
ed corn and potatoes are up. Flax
seeding is going on, the new breaking
being used largely for this crop. Win
ter rye is heading, but it is said to be
thin. Wheat, oats and barley are
growing splendidly, with good stands,
the recent cool weather having been
very favorable for stooling.
Found Old Skeletons.
Ten skeletons were found in an old
Indian mound cm the farm ot E. 3T.
Koehler, a mile and a half west of
Mound City, Lake Minmetonka.
Koehler is a foreman of a street crew,
and was engaged in clearing away a
mound when the find was made. The
skeletons were in pairs, about five ifeet
from each other, and several are in ex
cellent state of preservation. The
skeletons have been examined by Dr.
Newhall of MarkvilLe and Dr. Halgren
of Watertown, and they express the
belief that they are the remains of
mound builders An old-fashioned
stone pipe of curious pattern was found
in the mound, also some shells. There
are other mounds in the vicinity.
The supreme court justices have fixed
the compensation of the three commis
sioners who are charged with the task
of revising the statutes. Hiram F.
Stevens, the chairman, will receive
86,000 for the entire term of service.
Daniel Fish and Thomas J. Knox will
be paid $5,000 each. This will take
$16,000 of the $35,000 appropriated,
leaving $19,000 for -clerical expenses.
The compensation is considered low,
as eight months' work will be required.
It is likely that a considerable part of
the appropriation will be unused. The
report has to befil*dby Nov. 1, 1902.
Mrs. Henrietta Kicker, aged 75 years,
of the town of Candor, Becker county,

clothing caught fire, and before the
flames could be extinguished she was
so badly burned that death resulted.
She died in terrible agony. The son
was also badly burned while trying to
rescue his mother, but he will recover.

Milwaukee, May 27.—An Evening
Wisconsin special from Mineral Point,
Wis., says: The First national bank,
of this city, was burglarized early Sat
urday, the robbers getting away with
$20,000 or more, mostly currency. The
loss is fully covered by insurance. En
trance was effected through the shin

one-story structure, thence from the
attic to the vault by digging away the
arched brick. From the inside the
vault door was forced open and the
so-called burglar-proof safe was blown

A Late Report.
A later report says the amount se
cured by the robbers is $30,000. A re
I ward of $10,000 is offered for the ar
rest of the guilty parties. It is thought
the robbery was committed by two
suspicious characters who were seen
across the street from the bank a
month ago, at which time it is sup
posed the men planned the affair. As
there are no night trains out of Min
eral Point, it is thought the robbers
came from a near-by town and drove
back and caught a train which took
them to one of the small towns on the
Mississippi, where they are now hid
The large amount of cash was to be
used in paying off the miners and la
