the community actually contributed to the
I wealth of the community. The cow
•should pay for her keep. If she does not
; s?he a not only a loss to the farmer, but
I she stands in his way of obtaining the
most successful results. If every farmer
in the state could have his herd tested by
an expert, and be made to understand
just why his cows were not as profitable
to him as they ought to be, there would
be a weeding-out process, and a practical
survival of the fittest that would Increase
the wealth of the,state.
"I know of nothing we need so much
In this state (and it is needed just as much
In other states) as the personal inspection
of dairy herds by experts. We do a lit
tle of JJiis work, but we cannot do it
systematically. In our monthly butter
; contests whenever we find a farmer who
needs a little assistance to improve the
quality of his butter we generally send
. an inspector to his farm to show him just
: where he has failed, and how he can im
prove it. If we could go to every breeder
in Minnesota and show him by test and
/proof just where he was failing, Just
where he was losing by his present
methods, and point out to him methods
that would insure greater success, the
work would be worth hundreds of thou
sands of dollars to this state.
"This one point cannot be emphasized
too often, that every cow in a herd that
is below standard and does not pay for
herself is a detriment to the owner and
a drawback and hindrance to the dairy
development of Minnesota. Every cow
that cannot prove her worth by her works
should be sent post haste to the slaugh
ter house."

HAS STRIKING STYLE
REV. G. CAMPBELL MORGAN IS
DRAWING' LARGE COXGiXK- ~
. CATIONS :
DRAMATIC IN EVERY MOVE
His Subject Last Night Was "Walk
ing With God"—Absolute Ac
cord With the Deity Ist
Necessary.
Every pew in -the House of Hope Pres
byterian church was filled with an audi
ence that gathered to hear Rev. G. Camp
bell Morgan last night. Mr. Morgan is
conducting Northfield extension meetings
at this church every afternoon and even
ing, and each night the church is fflled.
His personality Is perhaps Mr. Mor
em's strongest point. His diction is ele
gant, and the words roll from his mouth
In rythmic cadences, but his pose and
gestures are what keep the congregation
in R. state of tension from the time he
begins to speak until the evening prayer
is said.
His figure is striking and dramatic in
every movement. He apparently cannot
stand or move otherwise. He is tall, his
sharp features, narrow shoulders and his
entire form has a look of spare-ness which
is increased by the tight-fitting Prince
Albert he wears His Lair is parted from
one side of his head down to the opposite
eye, so that when looking- in certain di
rections he appears to have on a small
cap.
Raliid-Flre Gestures.
In his movements he is quick and in
cisive, and at times his gestures are
made in rapid-fire order. Again they are
made with all the elegance, grace and
ease of the trained orator, and again
they are convulsive. The only time he
is not using his hands and arms to eluci
date his statements is when he leans on

Hid."
his elbows on the lectern in a manner
that hides him except his clear-cut face.
His face has all the mobility of expres
sion of the actor, becoming indignant and
snarling when the subject warrants.
The evident and obvious earnestness of
the man keeps the audience in a most
receptive and appreciative mood all the
time. There is no escaping his enthusi
asm, and although the words he says
may be forgotten as soon as heard, they
leave the hearer as eager for more. lie
is seldom still during the course of his
sermon. He walks frem one side to the
other, back and forward, coming to all
climaxes with a rush, and while they
hang in the air he steps back with his
arms akimbo, only to start again.
Hotly in Accord With Mind.
His ertire body is in perfect accord
with l.is mind. When he is angry, every
muscle shows it, his lips twitch, his eyes
flash and hn fingers hold up evil in front
of his face and throttle it as if he was
infuriated beyond reason. In an instant
his mood has changed, and his arms
move in graceful curves, his voice modu
lates and his entire expression is com
pletely change-d, only 1(5 change again.
In his sermon he handles many subjects,
with many parenthetical remarks, but
they are always forcible and convincing.
His topic last night was "Enoch, the Man
Who Walked With God." To walk with
God, he said, there must be complete
harmony between one's life and the Crea
tor. There are many who would be will-

A Characteristic CJestnre ;
Ing to walk with God, but who have one
small habit that they refuse to give up,
and to these it was impossible as nothing
but a complete agreement would do.
There is a general consent to the righ
teousness of the divine programme, but
this will not do, as he would walk with
God must have no controversy with him.
He told the congregation, in speaking
of the necessity of implicit faith in God.
that the only time he was near to losing
his faith was during the Armenian mas
sacres. Later he saw that God was do
ing right, but "up to this hour I believe
that my country sinned by its inaction."
He cautioned his hearers about blun
dering through zeal, saying that the last
work of miraculous surgery done by the
Savior on earth was putting on an ear
that had been cut off by a blundering
zealot, and that there had since been
enough blunders to keep the Lord con
tinually performing his miracles.
He criticised the hymnals and allegories
of the woebegone type that were always
lamenting death with ghoulish pictur
esqr.eness, saying that it was about time
that Christians learn to die. Mr. Morgan
will not speak tonight, but will continue
during the coming week.

" suicide:
LN.TENSE PAIN RACKED NERVES
He Xever Fully Recovered From Ef
fects of Amputation of Leg—
Financial Worry Theory
Is Doubted.
St. Paul friends of C. H. Worthen, who
on Thursday killed hi 3 wife and himself
in New York, were greatly shocked yes
terday morning to learn of the tragedy,
and almost without exception they re
fuse to accept the theory of despondency
due "to financial reverses, put forward in
the New York dispatches. Those in this
city who knew Mr. Worthen best declare
that his deed could only be attributed
to positive insanity resulting from long
years of acute physical suffering. One
gentleman, a physician who had known
Mr. Worthen and his wife for twenty
years, and had continued intimate rela
tions with them even after they left this
city to make their home in the East
said last evening to The G lob c:
"I am firmly convinced that he must
have been positively insane. Ever since
he met with that accident he has, I
know, suffered most excruciating pain
at frequent intervals. It was believed
by the physicians familiar with his case
that in the healing of the wound caused
by the amputation of his leg some of thts
nerves had become disarranged and at
intervals of twenty or thirty hours he
was subject to periods of intense pain
from which he could find no relief. 1
know that while he remained here it was
his custom at such times to stay by
himself and suffer in silence, and only
his physician, and most intimate friends
know the torture he was compelled to
undergo. Doctors came to the conclu
sion that another operation would greatly
improve his condition, if not entirely
relieve him from those agonizing pains,
but he absolutely refused to again place
himself in the hands of the surgeons,
and continued to bear his suffering as
best he could, although it was a constant
drain upon his physical system, and
could not but in time affect his rajnd.
After he went to New York the business
in which he engaged required greater ac
tivity on his part, and the periods of
pain were more frequent and his suffer
ing more severe. It would be only a
natural consequence that he should be-;
come insane under the circumstances."*
"When he first arrived In this city Mr."
WoJthen became !.nterested in a credit
insurance company, but wthin a short
time he invested capital in the Power*
Dry -Goods company, and became secre
tary and treasurer of the company. For
a number of years he was credit man ot
the firm, and during the time he occupied
that position he made an extensive ac
quaintance among the wholesale mer
chants of the city.

LI^rtpATION
PUBLIC EXAMINER ORDERED IT
Company Could Not Secure Netr
Business—Will Be Able to
Pay Eighty Cants on ._,i -
Dollar.
Public Examiner S. T. Johnson yester
day took charge of the United States
Savings and Loan Association of St. Paul,
having offices in the Manhattan building,
and at his direction it will go into liquida
tion.
'me examiner in his letter to Acting
Manager Douglas gives four reasons why
liquidation is considered necessary. Ine
association cannot get new business to re
place the withdrawals of maturinc stock;
the courts in several states have shown
hostility in mortgage foreclosures ham
pering realization on past due contracts;
lack of new business makes it din.cult to
pay off stockholders and it is not fair to
collect from present members to pay with
drawals. Mr. Johnson says: "I have no
criticism of your past administration.
You have carefully, intelligently and very
economically administered the affairs of
the corporation and put forth every tf
fort to repair the damage done by the
late panic, and my only regret is that
your effort has not been more success
ful." The assets and liabilities are about
equal, each being in the neighborhood
of $80O,(KX>. The creditors will realize at
least SO cents on the dollar.
The officers of the association are:
Gen. .Lucius F. Hubbard, president, ex
governor of Minnesota.
A. R. MeGill, vice president, ex-gover
nor of Minnesota; postmaster of St. Paul.
John Douglas, managing director, for
merly of the United States treasury de
partment.
Anthony Yoerg, director, real estate, St.
Paul.
P. M. Kerst, director, assistant public
examiner, St. Paul.
John A. Clark, director; attorney; ex
chairman finance committee, city of Phil
adelphia, Pa.
Gen. Mark U. Flower, director; presi
dent St. Paul Union Stock Yards com
pany St. Paul.
M. Spencer, secretary.
F. H. Ewing, attorney.
Assets Equal Liabilities.
Manager Douglas says:
"I think the assets equal to the liabili
ties," he-said, "and I believe that until
at least one-half of the assets is distrib
uted the income from the property we
hold will pay all of the expenses of liqui
dation. Every piece of the property is
improved and it is all rented advanta
geously. It is really making money still
for the shareholders.
"The real troubk- was the difficulty to
get new business. Building associations
have suffered recently and people distrust
them. To the best of my knowledge not
one of the local associations in this sec
tion has survived and after our associa
tion goes into liquidation, but one of fif
teen national concerns will remain in
Minnesota.
"We were organized fourteen years ago
and did a good business. The theory we
worked on was selling stock in places
where money was cheap and making
loans where money was dear. Our sys
tem was perfect. We loaned only where
there were local boards. These boards
consisted of at least five members, and
each was obliged to hold at least ten
shares of stock. We had a special ex
aminer, also, appraise the property, and
no loan was made for more than 50 per
cent of the lowest appraisement. Yet we
lost on som§ of our loans. The courts
are hostile in foreclosures and this ham
pers us some. —
"Our assels are largely made up of real
estate holdings. Wo have about $500,000
in that sort of property. As I said be
fore, this is payiiv# well: but houses and
lands will not pay lor stock withdrawals.
We are obliged to dispose of the teal es
tate."
Mr. Johnson advised liquidation on
March 12, and on March 27 the board
of directors met and decided to do so.
IS CAUGHT SHOPLIFTING
HAXDSOMELV DRESSED WOMAN
FORCE TO i)IS(.))R(.i;
Detected in One Store. She Is Com
pelled to Surrender Lace Taken
From Another Large
Establishment.
Shoppers in.one of the big department
stores of the city were treated to a sen
sation yesterday afternoon. A tall, hand
somely dressed woman, wearing a num
ber of diamonds, entered the store and
made her way, to the silk skirt and under,
wear department. She loitered about for
awhile looking at the different articles
and occasionally asking „ie price. One
of the woman clerks finally became sus
picious and going ki search of the floor
walker the two watched the visitor from
a distance. When she had apparently
made up her mind that no one was ob
serving her she deftly caught up one of
the silk underskirts and rolling it into
a small bundle against the side of nor
skirt proceeded to siij> it into a silk bag
shi carried.
Immediately the saleswoman stepped for.
ward and demanded the article's return.
The woman at first attempted to deny the
charge, but when the clerk reached for
her bag. she realized that she was cau^.it
and returned the article. Just as she did
so a sakswc nnan from another store came
up and charged tne woman with stea'ins
a "quantity of lace. After more protests
the woman again opened her bag and took
out a bolt of expensive laoe. which she
returned to the girl. After some discus
sion the proprietor of the store in whjch
the woman was discovered decided not to
prosecute and she was allowed to go. It
is thought she is a stranger in the city.
WOKKMEN HAD GOOD TIME.
Xoble Franklin Lodge Entertain-
ment "Was a Great Success.
Noble Franklin Ledge No. 2 A O U

erary entertainment at Bowlby hall last
night for the members and their gentle
men friends. The programme contained
a number of interesting numbers, especial
ly the four-round boxing contest between
George O'Brien and William McDonald,
which resulted in a draw, and the musi
cal selections by Koehlers orchestra. Th»
other numbers on the programme were
also good and consisted of a song by J V
Fuller, piano solo, J. V. O'Connor; danc
ing specialty, the Ginger Bros. (Al Burns
J. G. Cunningham and John L. McQuil

Sent Good Money After Bad.
Judge Hine in the police court yesterday
sent George Fisher, a laborer from Du
luth, to the workhouse for ten days on
the charge of- being drunk. When Fisher
was arraigned in the police court he had
a slightly bruised and swollen counte
nance, and told a hard luck story, claim
ing to have been robbed of his money in
a hotel near Smith park when he arrived
in the city Wednesday night. Fishe^ al
leged that when he retired he had $90, but
that when he got up he .could only find '
$15, and as a result he spent it in trying
to drown his sorrow.

Candidates to the number of twenty-two
were examined yesterday at the city hall
as to their eligibility to hold positions as

WHAT FORESTRY IS
GEN. ANDREWS WRITES INTER
■j- ESTI.\G LETTER OX THE
SUBJECT
VALUE STAYS PERMANENT
Annual Cut Must Xot Be More Tlian
Average Growth to Make For
estry a Profitable In
vestment.
Gen C. C. Andrews, state fire warden
of Minnesota, has an interesting article
in the April number of "Outing," on
"What Forestiy Is." Gen. Andrews calls
forestry "the science of raising trees for
profit," and points out that it is always
poor economy to use good soil for fores
try, as it take* forty years to raise a
forest crop. "The leading principle of
forestry is that forest should occupy only
non-agricultural lands. Another princi
ple is that forest should when young be
crowded to promote upward growth. A
tree that stands alone grows too much
branches and does not yield good timber.
In crowded forests the trees compete
with each other for air and light, and the
tendency is to upward growth. Another
principle is that a forest, when it has
reached, its normal condition should be
treated as permanent capital, and Ao
more be cut in one year or a series of
years than equals the average growth
of the whole forest for the same period.
The forest under these conditions in
creases in value.
"By normal condition is meant a forest
that yields regular revenue. A natural
or primeval forest is seldom a normal
forest. Suppose we have a primeval for
est. The presumption is that two-thirds
of the trees are mature, have ceased
tarningr interest by their growth and arc
practically deaoT capital. They should
be cut down 'just as soon as they can be
and sold to advantage, and the ground
where they stood should be planted with
pine. The third part of the forest not
yet mature will be left to grow till the
timber has reached merchantable size.
Such will be the first process toward
bringing a natural forest into a condition
of a normal or regular revenue yielding
forest. It will take many years to
change a natural forest into a normal
forest.
Congress Is Acting.
"Considerable progress in forestry is
being made in the United Stales. An
earnest beginning has been made in sev
eral states. The United States govern
ment has within ten years set apart
j about 50,000,000 acres, mostly mountainous
i land, as forest reserves, and is having
i them managed to some extent on forestry
! principles. Over half a million dollars is
row annually appropriated by congress
for forestry purposes. A career for
young American foresters is opening, and
there are several schools where scientific
education and practice in forestry can be
| acquired, of which the two best endowed
I and equipped are at Cornell and Yale
j universities.
'•While forestry is in itself strictly a
business, there are many things connected
