Steams County Household Vie-
Tims of Accidents.
Special to The Globe.
ST. CLOUD, Minn., Nov. 20. —A pe
culiar run of ill luck seems to attend
the family of Knute Botten, living in
southwestern Steams county. The
latest accident was the falling of his
two-year-old child from a table and
dislocating its left forearm. A short
time ago two other children were bad
ly injured and their faces scarred up
by a kicking horse. Still another fell
from a wagon, Jireaking his arm at the
elbow. In addition to all this trouble
his little girl set fire to the barn, while
little Willie was distinguished by hav

LITTLE GIRL DANCES
Maria's Love of Music Leads Her For
NEW YORK, Nov. 20.—Maria is the
ten-year-old daughter of Paola Loren
ti, an Italian barber at 53 East Fourth
street, and is the second In a brood
of seven. Friday evening she was left
to help her eldest sister, Cecilia, in
looking after the smaller fry while the
barber and his spouse went visiting
In Mulberry street.
The younger Lorentis had been
tucked away for the night, sister Ce
cilia was napping in the sole Lorenti
rocker, and Maria was trying to amuse
herself alone, when there rose from
the street the notes of a giddy waltz
reeled off by a hand organ.
Now, if there are two things that
Maria is fond of they are music and
dancing. For a while she listened, her
feet Instinctively keeping time; then
she looked at her sleeping brothers and
Bisters, and thought that it would be
no harm to slip down to the street and
have just one little dance.
She tiptoed out of the room and,
once in the street, joined the little
group of girls that were already glid
ing and pirouetting through the mazes
of one of those mysterious impromptu
dances of the street child —dances that
are not taught in any book or school,
yet where each dancer seems instinc
tively to know what particular twirl
or kick comes next.
The coppers ceased falling in the or
gan grinder's hat, and he moved along
a half block. So did his little train
of dancers, and Maria with them. And
in his next, and his next, and his next
move, Maria followed. Flushed, her
eyes sparkling, carried far away from
her tenement surroundings by the
swing and rhythm of the music, she for
got her charges at home, overlooked
the fact that she no longer knew the
faces of the children she was dancing
■with, nor the name over the corner sa
loon or over the grocery opposite.
"Hey, youse, yer playin' after hours!
Cut it out or I'll run ye in!" came from

A Sure and Easy Test on Coffee.

If relief follows you may know to
a certainty that coffee has been your
vicious and killing enemy. Of course
you can take It back to your heart
again if you like to keep sick.

coffee and I would not acknowledge
that it was causing my suffering.

like a different person. The headaches
and nervousness disappeared and

below the freezing mark and a sharp
wind blew throughout the afternoon
the exercises were a success in every
particular. There was a large turn out

When completed the statue, which
cost in the neighborhood of $9,000, will
be one of the handsomest shafts in the
country erected to the memory of the
soldiers of the Civil war. The figure,
about eight and a half feet high, will
stand upon a shaft of Vermont granite.
The monument stands fifty-three feet
high. The base is beautifully carved,
as is also the cap of granite just be
low the surmounting figure.
About the base four bronze plates
will be fixed. One of the plates bears
a large emblem of the Grand Army.
The other three plates bear appropriate
inscriptions as follows:

by John K. Daniels, a St. Paul sculp

When the procession arrived at the

stationed on the vacant lot, half
a block down the hill from the monu

guns attending the unveiling.
Miss Doran Unveils Statue.
After patriotic music by the bands
and a male chorus, Miss Doran was
introduced by Capt. J. J. McCardy, and
with the aid of Col. Josias King, un
veiled the statue. The bronze figure
was bound in flags but the wind had
twisted and knotted the strings, so
that it was with some difficulty that
the flags were removed.
As the last flag fell from its place
and the face of the statue was uncov
ered, Col. King, who had climbed on a
chair to cut one of the strings, stood
close to the statue. Instantly there
was a general murmur throughout the
crowd of the perfect likeness of the
statue to him.
As Miss Doran released the last flag

boom. A salute of thirteen guns was

Capt. Castle's Address.
The glory of its heroic men is the su
preme treasure of a people; a column ded
icated to their memory, is the supreme
expression of its gratitude and patriotism.
Saint Paul, capital city of the splendid
commonwealth of Minnesota; queenly
metropolis of an illimitable Northwestern
empire; throned among the fountains of the
continent's most majestic river, raises at
last—late indeed, but much better late
than not at all—a worth monument in
commemoration of those who fought that
the state might remain, untainted and un
marred, the indivisible segment of an in
This monument is a tribute to the loy
alty, the devotion, the valor and the im
measurable sacrifice of those who died,
and of those who with cognate singleness
and sacredness of consecration testified
their willingness to die that the nation
might live, that the flag might be exalted,
that all men within the nation's expanding
boundaries, beneath the flag's far-flutter
ing ribbons of lily and rose, might be for
ever free. It is the tribute of surviving
contemporaries, anticipating the assured
verdict of a grateful posterity—lifting into
the air and sunshine of the better, grander
days to come, an apotheosis of sublime
' St. Paul here plants on solid founda
tions and rears in enduring material her
testimonial to the bravery and patriotism
of the men who fought in the war for
the suppression of the gTeat rebellion—
those who died for the land of their love
and those, surviving, who have so lived
that it might be a land better worth liv
ing in and dying for. through the dimless
ages. All share in this commemoration —
soldiers who were enrolled in the state's
illustrious organizations and soldiers from
sister states of the loyal North, or loyal
soldiers from the border, who have since
found here congenial, happy homes. All
have joined in building for Minnesota the
stable fabric of a Christian civilization;
all have united in establishing the stand
ards of an enlightened citizenship.
(Capt. Castle here reviewed the history
of the formation of the First Minnesota
regiment, its splendid record in the Civil
war, and its brilliant achievement at Get
In conclusion Capt. Castle said:
What even the years of the early fu
ture have in store for us we cannot say.
He would be a bold prophet who would
forecast the duties and the events of the
day after tomorrow. We have been led
by paths we knew not of to higher
plateaus of contemplation, where have
been discovered new ideals of respon
sibility and destiny. That the flag of
the ultimate republic will float In wel
come sovereignty from Hudson's bay to
Panama we may readily assume—but
when, or by what process, we cannot
foretell. What tomorrow's imperative de
mands may be we do not know. But this
we know—that God reigns, the govern
ment of Washington still lives, and the
fortitude of the "boys in blue" still ani
mates the souls of their successors.
The monument was presented to the
city in a few simple words by. Capt. J.
J. McCardy. Mayor Smith received it,
speaking as follows:
Mayor Smith Accepts Monument.
I accept on behalf of the municipality
the grand trust conferred on her. It is a
fitting tribute to the brave men who in
the hour of peril left their homes and of
fered us their lives as a sacrifice in de
fense of our glorious Union.
The veterans of Acker post have done
themselves and the state great honor in
placing on the pedestal of this monu
ment the statue of Capt. Joseph King, vt
this city, the first volunteer in this state,
and, as I am informed, in the entire coun
try to enroll his name on the roll of
I cannot let this occasion pass without
expressing, as I believe, the sentiments of
the veterans of the war and of our citi
zens generally, of high appreciation of
the services of Capt. McCardy. who. by
his indefatigable energy largely secured
the funds for the erection of this monu
ment. The monument will stand as an
inspiration to true patriotism on the part
of the generations that will follow ours in
the life of our beloved city and country.
Rev. W. H. W. Boyle, of the House of
Hope church, pronounced the benediction
and the ceremonies closed with "taps"
sounded by a bugler.
The dedication of the soldier's monu
ment marks the results of forty years' en
deavor by citizens to secure one. The
movement was first started after the bat
tle of Bull Run, in which the First Min
nesota took part. A committee was ap
pointed to solicit subscriptions, but the
strenuous times brought on by the growth
of the Rebellion and the Indian out
breaks necessitated dropping the matter.

and secured a bottle of carbolic acid.
She also purchased a bottle of pop in
one of the saloons nearby and showed
it to the children when she arrived
home, promising to give them some in
a few minutes if they would be good.
The children went into another room
to play, and while they were absent, it
is believed, the mother prepared the
deadly drink. She poured about an
ounce of acid into the emptied pop
bottle and then filled It with water.
She called the children from their
play, and, telling- them that they might
now have some pop, began drinking
from the bottle. She drank three
fourths of the contents of the bottle,
and then, placing it to the lips of hei
little son, Frank, five years of age, she
began pouring it into his mouth, but he
ran from her Into another room. The
mother handed the bottle to her seven
year-old daughter, and the girl imme
diately began drinking from it. She
only took one Or two swallows when *t
began to burn her tongue and she
dropped the bottle. The mother tried
to force her to take more, but as she
reached for the girl she began to get
dizzy from the effects of the poison
and fell against the wall.
Holding herself up, she made her
way around the room as far as her
bedroom, where she fell upon the bed
"I hardly knew what to do when I
saw them there," said little Mary, "buc
when I found ma asleep and I couldn't
wake her up, I knew something awful
had happened, and I ran for the doc
Motive for the Deed.
The motive first suggested for the
terrible deed was despondency over
trouble with her husband. Kovarik,
however, denies that he has had any
trouble at all with his wife for several
months. He stated last night that they
had never had any serious quarrels
He admitted drinking at times, but
claimed that his habit was not respon
sible for his wife doing washing. "Sh*
did it because she wanted to. She
worked for people on the hill, and liked
to meet that better class of people. She
never had to do It," he explained.
Kovarik believes that it was through
fear of death at the birth of her sixth
child that his wife tried to end her ex
istence. "For the past month my wifa
has been fearful of her coming illness,
because her mother and sister both
died at the birth of their sixth child,'
said Kovarik. "She was very much
afraid of the ordeal, and had made
arrangements to go to the city hospi
tal when she became ill.
"We talked about her going to the
hospital last week and at that time we
remarked that the farewells must be
sad ones when she went, because
none of us would know whether she
would come back alive. I said to her
then: 'Oh, you must live! You must!
What would I do with these little chil
dren? I love them and do not want to
give them away.'
"The conversation made a great im
pression on us both, and I think she
has brooded over it a great deal since.
We have had no quarrels at all for a
month, but have been like little chil
dren. She always kissed me each
morning when I went to work and we
were just as happy as could be.
"The only reason I can see for her
doing this terrible thing is that she
was afraid she was going to die, just
as her mother and sister had, and did
not want to leave the little children on
me as a burden. She thought It would
be best to end her life and theirs, too.
I want to see her recover, for if I did
do anything wrong I want to know it."
Made Careful Preparations.
It is evident that Mrs. Kovarik fully [
intended committing suicide, as she
made all preparations for it. She was
unusually affectionate in her farewells j
to her husband yesterday morning, and
later when her twelve-year-old daugh
ter, - Mary, started for school. The
woman surprised her by kissing her i
good-by and saying a number of "nice
things" to her. The little girl states
that her mother had not kissed her
good-by in years when she left for
school, and she could hardly under
stand it at the time, she says.
The mother also kept at home her
little daughter, Anna, who is in the
second grade at the Adams school,
stating that she wanted her to stay
with her during the day.
