School Fund May Be $100,000,000.
The school fund -of Minnesota ia
growing at an enormous rate. It al
ready amounts to over $16,000,000
and at present is increasing at the
rale of $1,000,000 a year. It is con
servatively estimated that the fund
will reach $30,000,000, but there is a
strong probability that $100,000,000
will be the figure if the lawremains
The assets of this fund consist of
land, timber and minerals. Two
sections ia every township were re
served by government grant as
school sections, and in addition all
lands classified as "swamp" are
turned over to the 3tate a3 fast as
they are surveyed, to be divided
equally between the school fund
and the fund for the maintenance
of state institutions. The proceeds
from these lands are the foundation
of the school fuud. Lands fit for
farming purpose:) are sold to set
tlers on long time contracts at a
minimum price ot $5 per acre. When
there is merchantable timber, the
stumpage is sold at auction, the
land being reserved. When iron is
found the state reserves a royalty
of 23 ceuts a ton for every ton of the
ore taken out.
Not a cent'of the big fund is being
expended. It is accumulating in
principal, and only the interest is
being used for the current expenses
of the public schools. The interest
money is distributed to school dis
tricts twice a year on a per capita
basis, together with the proceeds of
the 1 mill direct tax levy, and this
distribution amounts to more than
|4 a year forever child who attends
school forty days or more.
It is likel3' that the fratners of the
constitution, which provides that
this fund uiu3t forever be preserved
inviolate and undiminished, had no
idea that the lands owned by the
state would become so valuable aa
has proved the case, and there is a
growing seutiment that a limit be
set to the fund and the excess be ex
pended in public improvements. It
is argued that this treasuring of
greats uns of money for the benefit
of future generationsis an injustice
to the pioneers of the state, aud that
*ome of the money ought to beuse-d
in buildi nggood road** through the
wilderness and in draining swamp
The iron ore lands owned by the
state have hardly been scratched
yet. They themselves will j-icld
many millions of dollars. An esti
mate that the school fund will reach
close to $100,000,000 if the constitu
tion is not amended i9 notjgxagger

enormous Number of Shoe Lace Eyes
Annually Called For.
"Some of the apparently most tri
vial-things in-this world are the most
uecessary things and fortunes are
made in manufacturing them," said
Ralph L. Jenkins.
"Take the lace eyes of shoes, for
instance. The average person never
gives them a thought, but they are in
dispensable to our footwear, and there
are factories that devote themselves
exclusively to making them. Did you
ever stop to tliink how many of those
little things are used every year?
"On the basis of the ^population of
the United States being 80,000,000
this country uses more than 3,000,000
of lace eyes and hooks a year. Every
man, woman and child will wear out
on an average two pairs of shoes in
twelve months. The majority of peo
ple have two feet and there are twen
ty eyes and hooks on each shoe. Use
your arithmetic and see what the to
tal is. It -foots up to 2,000,000 more
than 3,000,000."—Milwaukee Sentinel.
USE FOR CAYENNE PEPPER.
In the Form of a Sandwich It Will In
Sufferers from insomnia should trj
cayenne pepper sandwiches. Cut a
slice of thin bread—a plain biscuit
may be used—butter it generously,
and add a liberal sprinkling of cayenne
pepper. Cover it over with a thin
slice of bread or a biscuit, as the case
may be. It is surprising what little in
convenience is experienced, merely a
Blight, smarting sensation in the
mouth, which Is soon over. The sand
wich should be eaten just before re
tiring, and soon after the sufferer will
be asleep. The pepper acts as a stim
ulant to the stomach, drawing the
blood from the excited brain and in
ducing sleep. A cayenne pepper sand
wich is much less harmful than drugs
and, when taken in small quantities, is
a good tonic for a weak stomach. Bil
ious headache has also been known to
yield t.t a cup of hot water to whiofc
has been added a generous pinch a
ceyenne pepper and a nip of soda
big as a pea.
Their Ideas About Women.
The Hottentots and Bushmen believe
women are a necessary evil, and the
younger they break their wives In the
better. They feel that ten years Is
none too young, for girls of these years
are more pliable and more easily mold
ed. It must be granted that the Hot
tentots use milder methods than do
the Australians. They do not kill the
girls who refuse to marry. The Hot
tentot often goes to the hut of a girl
and makes her a cup of coffee, then
hands it to her without adding a word.

answer is "yes." If she refuses tc

Nose Poked Into Other Businesses,
The man with a good olfactory or
gan can earn big pay outside the
dairy business. The whisky testers
rely upon the sense of smell more
than upon that of taste to judge goods
and some whisky smellers draw large
salaries. These men both smell and
taste in judging the goods. They pour
a small amount of the liquor into a
glass, whirl the glass sharply and
sni# the vapor.
Alcoholic cordials, especially such
as creme de menthe, chartreuse and
absinthe, are tested almost entirely by
thif. sense of smell, and big buyers
would rather have the judgment of a
smeller than of the best chemist upon
the quality of the goods.
A disagreeable child is likely to

A COCOA PALM,
Grow in Salty Soil, Defying Hurrl
cartes of the Tropics..
The cocoanut means a great deal
to the West Indian negro, says
Country Life." A dark-skinned ttian
ran lightly up the tall stem, With
suspiciously prehensile feet, stopping
at the fruit cluster to select and pull
off a great nut, which he tossed to
the ground. I examined it with cu
riosity, for it was little enough like
the cocoanut oil the stores in the
north. A smooth green covering,
hard, impervious to anything but a
heavy knife—no wonder the cocoa
palm spreads among these islands!
Boat-shaped, in a sense light enough
to float easily, the big seed is always
ready for a sea voyage.Cast ashore
on a sandy beach, it qqickly germin
ates and holds -fast in the salty soil,
soon growing to' its estate of beauty
and fruitfulness and able to d$fy the
hurricanes of the tropics.
Restful as were the isolated cocoa,
palms, it was not until I came upon
a real grove of-them that I could
fully appreciate the tropical latitude.
A visit to "Crusoe beach," fringed by
the great palms, hanging full of heavy
nuts, with liberty to wander where
the sandy ground—it was winter,
mind you!-—Was covered, not with
fallen leaves of oak and beech, but
with great fronds eight or. ten feet
long drooped from the clean-stemmed
gia.nts with feather-duster heads—
this took away the last memory of

REDEEMS ALL BAD MONEY.
New York Church Member Keeps Col*
lections at Par.
"We have a member of this"congre
gation," said an usher in a Lexington
avenue church, according to the New
York Press, "who contributes J:o its
support in an unusual way. He pays
his pew rent all right, but he has a
rooted objection to dropping a coin
in the~ collection plate. No matter
whether the contribution is for church
expenses or for foreign missions, this
man ducks the plate when it passes
his pew. He says he abhors 'giving
alms before men.' But he redeems
all the bad money that others drop
into the plate as a way of getting even
with his conscience.
"When the collection is counted
all the bad coin is picked out and
given to the treasurer of the church.
Some Sundays' there is a good deal
of it. It seems as though men and
women who have Canadian dimes and
quarters mutilated coins of all de
nominations and money that was
never made in the mint feel justified
in dropping it into the collection box.
When the treasurer gets a handful of
this money he calls the old man, into
the vestry after the Wednesday even

money for it. The old man puts the
bad coin in his poclfet and takes ifi
What Fatigue Really is.
Tiredness is as natural a condition
of life as is the ability to perform
work, writes Andrew Wilson in the
Illustrated London News. It is na
ture's signal that rest and repose are
necessary in order to recuperate the
vital powers. Think for a moment of
the supply of nourishment (which
means the giving of energy or "the
power of doing work") to any part.
The healthy frame receives its due
quota of food materials, and out of
them builds up its substance and ob
tains its working power. But the
supply of energy is not constant.
Hence, after a certain exhaustion of
the store it originally possessed, the
human engine demands more coal and.
water. Fatigue is tli sign-manual
which authorizes the ft »sh supply.
How Bird) Bull I Nests.
Swallows and house martins build
by sticking together .pellets of pre
pared road mud. Most of the inaterlal
is obtained from the drying puddles
on the high roads. If not mixed with
anything else the tendency of these
pellets would be to crumble when dry.
But the swallow tr\be is gupplied with
a mucous secretion bicb enables it
to gum these partible together. The
swallows' nests, from which the Chi
nese "bird's nest uov p" is made, are
