ODDS AND ENDS.
There can be no doubt that William
A. Van Slyke retires with a pang of re
gret from the board of _ park commis
sioners. "It is nothing but justice,"
quoting Mayor Smith, "to say that Mr.
Van Slyke is the father of the, park sys
tem of the city." lie entered the work
at the inception with a zest that assured
ultimate success, and, although certain
citizens— often, unfortunately, men of
influence— have obstructed the process
of acquiring the lands- and effecting
their improvement with a persistency
and determination that has tnreatened
defeat, St. Paul now has ' over forty
different parks located in the most pic
turesque spots that could be ; chosen.
These sites were largely selected by
Mr. Van Slyko, and he has devoted him
self with enthusiasm to the work of
beautifying the city in this way until it
promises soon to rival the larger and
older cities of the East. As a member
of the city council, however. Aid. Van
Slyke will undoubtedly keep a jealous
eye on these forty objects of his pride,
and will contribute all he can in the
way of suggestions and advice to his
late co-members of the board.
Property owners on St. Anthony Hill
who are affected by the Selby avenue
bridge over the railway tracks are
growiing. They say that there was no
petition for the bridge and that they are
to be assessed for something which is
of more benefit to the cable line com
pany than any others. The Selby ave
nue cable extension came up some time
ago. To continue the line out the
avenue a bridge was imperative at the
crossing of the tracks, so a bridge to
cost $95,000 was ordered. The agree
ment is that the city is to give $20,000,
the street car company £11,000, and the
remainder, ?<50,000, to be raised by as
sessment. Upon the assessments the
board of public works is now
figuring. The proposition is to
assess Selby avenue lots $30 each,
Dayton and Hague avenue lots, $20
each, and Marshall and Laurel avenue
lots, $15 each. The property for a dis
tance of several miles is brought in for
the levy. Laurel avenue parallels Selby
on the south to Dale street, where there
is an offset, and the continuation of the
street on westward is Hague avenue.
Dayton and Marshall avenues, in the
order named, parallel Selby on the
north. Since the briege across the
tracks on Selby avenue is more particu
larly beneficial to the street car com
pany, the property owners affected hold
that the company is putting up a
ridiculously small proportion of the
cost. The city's being entirely too high
—to say nothing of the individual own
ers upon whom the burden falls. This
is the view of the persons assessed, and
per consequence they growl.
If to-day should be fair and pleasant
the summer Sunday picnics and excur
sions will bud. it will not be long un
til those buds shall bloom out in their
varied hues. The park commissioners,
anticipating the approach of out-door
lounging, have had the city parks put
in first-class condition, and an abundant
supply of electric lights and seats have
been provided. The people are stand
ing on tip-toe waiting to catch the first
zephyr that shall hearld the approach
of mild weather. Summer toggery is
already waiting for an airing, picnic
and fishing parties have been arranged
—all is in readiness awaiting the sanc
tion of the weather bnreau to consum
mate their arrangements.
M. J. Bell says that St. Paul should
not be jealous of Duluth because of her
immense real estate transfers. Said he:
"Imluth is one of our children, and vyill
never surpass St. Paul. The shipping
by water affords a temporary advantage
to Duluth, but the time is coming when
improved railroad facilities will offer
transportation for grain and other com
modities at rates so low that water
traffic will not be able to compete with
that on the rail, because the facilities of
loading, unloading and shipping to the
desired point will operate in favor of
railroads. Then Duluth will have but
one side to draw traffic from, whilst St.
Paul is centrally located and will stead
ily increase her annual shippings."
L. H. Maxfield is a firm believer in
the future of St. Paul as the metropolis
of the Northwest. He speaks with
pride of the fact that her shipping busi
ness exceeds $100,000,000 annually.
O. L. Ilaase regrets now that he cast
his lot in with the Kiefer crowd and
was forced to join the colony of disap
pointed place hunters.
Company H, First Kegiinent.
An enthusiastic drill was held on
Wednesday evening, when forty-seven
men answered roll call. The election
for second lieutenant on the same even
in!. r resulted in the selection of Private
J. ('. McCreight on the second ballot.
There are several members who were
mustered in by Col. Bend on the even
ing of Feb. 24, who have not been pres
ent since then; neither have they paid
any dues or fines, and, under the" state
laws, such men have laid themselves
liable to arrest. Such being the case, it
might be well tor these parties to settle
■with their company commander soon, or
they may have opportunity to do so
with the judge of some court. Non
payment of lines and neglect of duty is
declared a misdemeanor under the
penal code, and non-payment ot dues is
collectable by suit, in the name of the
state of Minnesota. The party sued,
however, can take his choice of paying
at once or occupying quarters in the
"Hotel Bean" until same are paid, as
others have had to do.

National Educational Association.
Prof. John W. Greer, principal ot
North high school, Minneapolis, spent
yesterday in this city arranging for the
Minneapolis school exhibit at the Na
tional Educational convention. He de
cided the assembly hall at the manual
training school wouid be the best place.
Minneapolis is to have a magnificent
exhibit of art, drawing and manual
training school work. Principal Ben
nett, secretary of the exhibit committee,
finds himself very busy arranging for
the exhibits of applicants. The Pratt,
institute, of Brooklyn, N. V., is
to have the largest exhibit of
any one institution. They will occupy
four rooms at the manual training
school. The St. Paul executive
committee heartily appreciates the great
assistance given by the city teachers.
In soliciting places for board ana lodg
ing and other ways they have done all
they could. The executive committee
■will meet Monday at 4p. m. The col
lege department has secured the Port

An Old Man Whose Skin Be
comes Light and Dark
Resembling* the Sensitized Pa
per Used in Photographic
Nitrate of Silver for Throat
Treatment Produced the
St. Paul Physicians Greatly
Interested in the Sin
One of the most curious cases broueht
to the notice of local physicians is that
of William Corse,.an old manor seventy
two years who is stopping at the Hotel
Carlisle, on East Seventh street. Corse
came to St. Paul from Adams county,
111,, arriving hero but a few days ago.
Since his arrival lie has been the cyno
sure of all eyes on account of the pe
culiar affliction from which he is snffer
ins, and which makes him conspicuous
from the odd appearance it gives him.
Ween at high noun when the sun is shin
ing with its fiercest warmth, the man is
as black as a full-blooded plantation
negro, his unmistakably Caucasian
cast of feature, however, precluding
even a possibility of the presence
of neero blood in his veins.
As the day wears on and with evening
comes a less heated atmosphere, Corse's
face turns to the sickly lead color of the
Lascar, and when darkness comes fades
to an unnatural white. The old gentle
was seen by a Globe reporter on East
Seventh street yesterday, and curiosity
prompted the scribe to an investigation
of the causes which had led to his
present condition. Corse was found
later in the day seated in his room at
the Carlisle, and when made aware of
the calling of his visitor evinced a dis
position to withhold the story of the
experience which has formed him into
a veritable chameleon.
"I'm an old man," he said, in a voice
the tremulousness of which bore out his
r.siertion. "I'm a very old man and 1
have managed to evade newspaper no
toriety so far. 1 hope you will say
nothing about me. lam not always as
bad as now, but you see today was the
iirst really hot spell of the season, and
the effect on my skin was more marked
than it will be when 1 have become ac
customed to summer weather."
Being urged, however,
THE QUEEBLY DISFIGURED
old man gave his story, saving that he
was a good ways from home and he
didn't suppose it would matter much.
He was born, he said, at Danville, Pa.,
of fanner parents, and is a tanner him
self, now owning a farm in Adams
county. 111., to which state he moved
while still a young man, and married
there. He has one child, a son, who is
still a resident of Adams county. The
world went well with him. He made a
success of fanning and saved a
little competency from his labors
in that direction. It was in
1855 that the events trans
pired which changed the color of his
skin from white to black. About that
time he became troubled with an affec
tion of the throat and sought medical
aid, confident that a cure could be ef
fected. After trying several remedies
the physician attending him resorted to
painting the inside of the throat with
nitrate of silver, making a visit to the
farm twice a week to apply the remedy
personally. Corse became impatient at
the slow operation of the stuff and began
applying the silver himself every day.
His physician discovering this, warned
him to discontinue the applications, as
the result might prove disastrous.
The warning came too late, how
ever; the mischief had been
done. As the summer came on
and the heat increased the face and
hands of the victim of misapplication
began to turn black. It was noticed
then, as now. that the more brightly
the sun shone the blacker was the color
assumed. Corse became alarmed and
consulted the best talent of the Jeifer
son Medical college, at Jefferson, Pa.
It was there explained to him that the
silver nitrate had been absorbed into his
system, and that the action of the sun
upon exposed portions of his body was
precisely the same as upon the paper
sensitized by a silver bath process for
photograohic purposes. The case was
regarded as one of the most curious
ever heard of, and a series of lectures,
with Corse as an illustration ot the sub
ject, were delivered to the students at
the college. Some hope was held out
to him by the
LEADING MEDICAL MEX
of Philadelphia, that hemiirht be cured,
and in one case cream of tartar \va3
prescribed as a remedy. The patient
persevered in using the latter for six
months, and finally gave it up as a bad
job, there having been no visible change
for the better. St. Paul physicians are
taking a good deal of interest in the
case, and it is said that a similar one
was once successfully operated on by
Dr. Dedolf, of this city. The use of
nitrate of silver in treating throat affec
tions has now been almost entirely dis
continued by the profession, remedies
more simple and involving iess risk
having been discovered. In this partic
ular instance the dark color assumed
during those hours in the day when the
lteht is brightest, is emphasized by the
white beard worn. Corse is bald but
for a few locks of gray hair remaining
above his ears, and the top of his head,
shielded as it is by his hat from tne
light, seldom becomes as black as the
more exposed portions of his anatomy.
"It has been a great drawback to me,"
he said, referring to his affliction, "but
there is no pain from it, and my appe
tite is as good as it was when I was
twenty. I expect to stay in St. Paul a
week or more, and shall then return to
my home in Adams county."
A number of curious people have vis
ted the hotel since the advent of the
old gentleman from Illinois, and all are
treated by him with politeness and
AN IMMENSE SAVING
Effected by the Credit of St. Paul
City Comptroller Roche has signed
$50,000. in board of education bonds, to
take the place of a portion of the issue
of 1870, which have been called in. The
old bonds were to run thirty years, and
drew seven per cent interest. The old
ones sold in 1870 at 75 cents on the dol
lar, and the new ones were sold at par.
In speaking of the saving to the board
of education Mr. Roche figured a mo
ment and said: "In the lirst place
112,500 is saved in the sale of
the new bonds by selling them at par.
The Bavins in interest is 11,500 a year.
If the life of the old bond is considered
there will be a saving in the thirty
years of a sum of 857,500. or $7,500
more than the par value of the bonds.
In speaking of the ready sale of good
city bonds bearing a low rate of inter
est at more than their face value, as
was done in the case of the St. Paul
bonds, Mr. Roach said that his observa
tion shows that when times are hard
ami the transactions in real estate are
small in the acgregute, good bonds find
a ready sale, and vice versa when times
are brisk and capital seeks other invest
ments, and city bonds are not sold to as

The State Superintendent Issues
a Peppery Circular.
Prof. D. 11. Kiehle, state superintend
ent of public .instruction, has compiled
a circular letter that he will mail to all
the county superintendents of the state.
The circular relates that the attention
of the superintendent had been called
to the reports that are being received by
the state commissioner of labor statis
tics, purporting to fuxiiish data for a
compilation of school statistics. These
reports are made out by the teachers
themselves on blanks furnished by the
state commissioner, and are then for
warded by the county superintendents.
"These reports," says Prof. Kiehle.
quite severely, "in many cases show
either culpable carelessness or pro
found ignorance." Based upon these
term reports, the state distributes
$700,000 annually, and their insufficiency
hazard the apportionment for many of
the districts were it not for a system of
shrewd guessing on the part of the state
officials. The circular, furthermore,
emphasizes that the superintendents
will the present year be required to ex
amine these reports, and certify that
they believe that they have been com
piled in strict accordance with the law
and the like, thereby becoming per
sonally responsible. Mr. Kiehle gives a
concisa and lucid exposition of the style
and mariner of making the reports in
question, and then announces that the
revised edition of the public school li
brary catalogue is ready Cor distribution.
Each school having a library is entitled
to a copy.
GUESTS OP THE COUNCIL.
A Committee to Meet the Visiting
St. Louis Officials.
A special meeting of the council was
called yesterday afternoon for last night
for the purpase of taking action to re
ceive the St. Louis officials, who will ar
rive in the city at 7 o'ciock to-night.
The object of the visit is to inspect the
system of disposing of city garbage,
which question is now agitating the city
of St. Louis. There were eleven alder
men present— Kavanauah, Minea, Cul
len. Bickle, Conley, Weber, Bock. Blom,
Pratt, Sullivan and President Hamm.
The object of the meeting was stated,
whereupon Aid. Kavanaugh moved that
a committee be appointed to receive
the visitors at the depot, to con
sist of eleven members. President
Hamm suggested that those present
constitute the committee, and that the
committee meet the St. Louisans at
their hotel instead of the depot, as they
came as the guests of the Azatine com
pany and not of the city. It was finally
decided to meet to-night at 8 o'clock at
the council chamber, and thence pro
ceed to the hotel where the deputation
is to stop. President Hamm urges that
every member of the board of alder
men be present to-night at sharp 8.

At the executive meeting of the
jobbers' union held Friday afternoon,
the present freight-rate situation was
discussed. The circular letter of
President Stickney, of the Chicago,

cussed. The method proposed in it
relative to stock-raising received ap
proval. A circular letter was directed
to be prepared in the name of the
union, addressed to the retail mer

most directly interested in the prosperity of
the agriculturist. Having this in view, and
realizing the uncertainty of an exclusive
whean crop, it seems proper for us to call
your attention to the enclosed circular, de
scriptive of the live stock market at St. Paul,
and urge you to bring it to the attention of
your customers, to the end that it may en
courage them to more largely engage in the
business of raising live stock. Please remem
ber that if each farmer would raise one
steer and one litter of pigs (say six pigs)
more than low, it would amount to the large
aggregate of §15,000,0000 annually in the
state of Minnesota, and that it could"be done
without materially increasing the expenses
of the farmer.
THREE ELECTION CONTESTS
That Will Stir Up the Animals in
South St. Paul.
Appeals have been taken in the late
election of South St. Paul from the de
cision of the board of canvassers to the
district court of Dakota county. Messrs.
Johns, Michael & Johns have given
notice that the election of G. W. Stapf
as city treasurer will be contested by
M. F.Lienau; Joseph SchrolPs seat as
city attorney is contested by K. L.
Johns; William K. Todd's seat as city
comptroller is contested by A. B.Clarke.
It is claimed that each of the contest
ants received the highest number of
votes at the election, and that the cer
tificates were wrongfully issued. It is
claimed that all tickets on which the
names of those declared elected did not
appear were counted for them, amount
ing to sixty in each case. It is claimed
that there were at least sixty illegal
votes counted for those securing the
certificates. These voters were made
up of persons who did not have a legal
residence, or who were temporarily in
the city working on the streets and rail
road. Todd had a majority of 28, Stapf
57 and Schroll 34.
