TOOK THE ACID ROUTE
AUGUST MILHAUSEN, AGED 02. BE-
COMES TIRED OF LIFE
Apparently He Drank the Acid in
His Room Friday—Little Is Known
of His Family or Relatives— Was
a Member of Local Bricklayers'
Union.
August Milhausen, aged sixty-two
years.-committed suicide by drinking car
uolic acid some time yesterday in a room
at 127 East Eleventh street. He was
found about 11 o'clock last night by De
tective Henneidy, ,md had: evidently been
dead S3veral hours.
Milhausen was a bricklayer and lived
by himself In a room, doing all Irs own
cooking- by means of a gasoline stove.
The last seen of him alive was Friday
night about 6 o clock, when he came
home intoxicated. Mrs. O'Brien, who
lives across the hallway, noticed that he
did not leave his room yesterday and
when he did not take his paper out of
the door at night, she thought something
was wrong and telephoned police head
quarters. Detective Hennessy was de
tailed on the case and entered the room
by means of a window in the rear. Mil
hausen was lying on the quilts, with only
his underclothes on. A small phial of
carbolic acid lay empty on a table a few
inches from the bed.
There was one small carbolic acid burn
on his chin, and his posture Indicated
that he had drank the acid and toppled
over backward. The other occupants of
the flat heard no sound in the room from
the time he entered Friday night.
Acting Coroner Whitcomb viewed the
remains and decided that the man had
taken carbolic acid with suicidal intent
There will probably be no Inquest.
Although Milhausen has resided in the
city for several years little is known
concerning him. While drunk he had in
formed different persons that he was
married and the father of two children,
but their whereabouts are unknown
There were no letters in his clothes. He
was a member of the local Bricklayers'
Union No. 1, but was evidently in ar
rears. He had been working on the
streets for the city until a few days ago.
Milhausen had evidently spent all his
money for drinks and had come home
determined to end his life. Five cents
was all the money found on him, al
though he had enough provisions in the
room to last him for some time to come.
His room rent was paid in advance until
June 20.
He had often been despondent and was
in the habit of remarking that he would
be better off if dead. It is likely that
being out of work Friday night and
drunk, he became soured on life and
took the poison.
INDIAN MOUNDS PAVILION
Will Be Thrown Open to the Public
This Afternoon.
The new pavilion at Indian Mounds
psrk is now complete a^nd will be formal
ly opened to the public today. The build
ing was formerly a private residence
covering one of the lota purchased by the
board as an addition to the park, but it
has since been provided with a veranda
and converted into one of the most com
modious refreshment and rest pavilions
that the park board controls.
It is possible that Indian Mounds park
will shortly be provided with music for
the amusement of those who patronize
the grounds on Sunday and evenlng-s.
Suspected of Harness Stealing.
Officer Sudeith, of the Ducas street sta.
tion last night arrested Martin Trowiskl
in connection with the theft of a harness
from the barn of Andrew Rown on Ten
nessee street in the flats, which occurred
three weeks ago. Trowiski, who is about
sixteen years old, disclaims any knowl
edge of the theft, but the officers think
that he knows who the parties were who
broke into the barn.
SMOOTH TRICK BEING
WORKED ON FARMERS
How Tillers of the Soil Are Belitij
Cauglit by Old-Time Con
tract Game.
Farmers in the neighborhood of the
Twin Cities are being "worked" by a
trick operated by a gang which seems
to have been successful in extorting
money from the too credulous tillers of
the soil.
A stranger calls on the unsuspecting
granger and tells him that the company
he repress nts desire to establish a grocery
route. They propose to biing country
merchants to time. This "Concern is to
supply articles of food cheap, and nota
bly No. 1 granulated sugar is offered at
$4.2-3 per 100 pdsnds, delivered at the farm
er's door. In payment they will buy eggs
of their customers throughout the season
at 16 cents a dozen. Now this agent
states to the farmer that, as a premium
and to secure patrons, they propose on
starting out to give a gramophone with
ass order for groceries. The gramophone,
It is explained, is worth $20. The man
addressed doa* not believe this, but he is
willing to accept the present without
looking a gift horse in the mouth. He
has no earthly use for a gramophone,
and in fact has only a faint conception of
what it is. So he orders $5 worth of gro
ceries, Including the sugar, and the agent
writes on the face of the order paper
"S2O discount on gramophone order."
"Why do you write that?" says the larm-
b
v s
Hundreds try it every day.
Save $1.00
I sell Shoos for $2.50 that others
ask $3.50 for.
1 1. UREN3EI, 153 East fill SL
er. "Because," replies the agent, "you
might be charged $20 and that counter
acts it." He then produces the paper an l
directs the farmer to sign on a blank
line on the reverse side of the order,
below a ma?s of printed matter. The or
der for groceries that the farmer wants
is not signed, but he is told that to get
the premium he must sign in that place.
Having put in his deadly work, the agent
hastily goes, leaving a copy of the signed
paper.
How any intelligent person, with aver
age common sense, can believe that he
will receire a gramophone or even a pen.
Ny whistle as a premium for buying sug
ar at less than wholesale rates, and pay
ing with eggs at 50 per cent above their
market value, is a mystery as profound
as the inscrutable ways of Providence.
But some of them bite. Alas! They are
already bitten, and hence this story.
"Notice—Salesman's authority limited
to take written or printed orders for
goods. No promise of rebate, reduction
or gift considered unless written on this
order. It is expressly understood by the
party giving this order that he gives
same upon his own judgment without
relying on representations by the agent
other than written or printed on this or
der. It is agreed that after delivery of
goods, this order is negotiable."
Among other things, the farmer finds
to his astonishment that he has signed
this order: "
Deliver at your earliest convenience
at my place 1 dish gramophone, 1 record
case, 1 cabinet, W" flats of assorted rec
ords, 2 Germans and 1 extra horn and
stand. Upon the delivery of the above
goods, I, undersigned, agree to pay the
above named company, or bearer, for
said gramophone, Hats, horn and stand
record case and cabinet, $20 each." The
$20 is printed in large type and the word
"each" in smaller type, so that the dis
honest nature of the transaction is palpa
ble throughout.

POULTRY MEN FORM
A NEW ASSOCIATION
Anti-Score Card Faction Has For
mally Severed Relations With
Other Side.
As a result of the recent split in the
Minnesota Poultry association over the
score card proposition, the antl-sco;*
card men last night mot at the Windsor
hotel and formed a new organization to
be known as the Minnesota Fanciers'
association. The following officers were
elected: President, H. J. Goette; first vice
president, WilTiam B. Klein; second vice
president, John Kirby; secretary and
treasurer, N." S. Beardsley; superinten
dent, William Schultz; assistant superln
tendient, A,. Jungmann.
The new organization begins its exist
ence with a membership of forty-one,
with prospects for a substantial in
crease. Its first show will probably fee
held in St. Paul and will be judged by
the comparison system, which the score
card faction opposed.
Tho new organization comprises tie
n.ost representative breeders in tn-3
state. The membership contains a ma
jority of the breeders who have the bett
exhibits at the annual poultry shows.
The anti-score card men fought for the
comparison system for throe years, ami
at the last annual meeting the>
their contention. The other faction,
however, raided a fight end asserted that
the meeting was not legal. The UgaX
became somewhat bitter and the anti
score card faction decided that th*
easiest and best way out of the difficii.ty
was to form an indepeadeut organizaUjn
r<i their own in which harmony woul
guaranteed.
The new organization has alreai
cured pledges from many of the
breeders in the Northwestern atat
promising to send their birds to the an
nual show of the Fanciers' association
