Fire at 7 o'clock this morning dam
aged a barn on the premises of Robert
Kuschmann, 2207 Fourth avenue, also
destroying a large amount of baled
hay stored in the loft, with a total loss
of about $500. How the blaze started
is not definitely known, but it is sup
posed to have been caused by a tramp
dropping a match or a spark from his
pipe in leaving the barn after bunking
in the hay during the night.
In summoning the department a
mistake as to the location of the tire
was made, and as a result the Central
and No. 3 companies were given an
unnecessary run of several blocks.
The barn" and contents were in
sured in the Rochester German, of
Rochester, and the German Fire, of
Freeport, both companies being rep
resented in A. D. Huesing's agency.
Chief Collier requests that hereaf
ter more care be exercised by parties
in calling the fire department by tele
phone, especially as to location, and
thereby prevent delay in reaching the
Hennepin Canal Work.
Capt. Wheeler selected John F.
Liken, William Weimer, George Ar
nett and N. C. Gilbert to view the
land on the Jeffrey and Waite farms,
throusrh which the canal will run. If
the cases are carried to the courts
these witnesses will be called to Chi
cago, and their testimony will be the
base from which the terms of settle
ment are made. Jeffrey's farm will
be cut up so that 40 acres with the
buildings will be on the south side of
the canal and 57 acres on the north
side. The best way for farmers on
the line of the canal is to trade lands
with each other, so as to get their
land all on one side. Some places
this can be done. There will be a
lock near the pumphouse. Work will
be begun opposite Geneseo a year
from next fall. Geneseo News.

giving tone to the nerve centers in
the stomach, gently stimulates the
liver and kidneys, ami -aids these or

appetite, aids digestion, and is pro
nounced by those who have tried it as
the very best blood puritier and nerve
tonic. Try it. Sold for 50 cents or

The record-breaking achievement of
1898 was accomplished by Capt. Robr
ert H. Tromley, who made the fastest
trip on record from Rock Island to
Stillwater and. return and with his
palatial steamer, F. C. A. Denkmann,
and took the largest raft down the
river that has ever been recorded.
There are other upjM?r river captains
and pilots who are top-notchers in
their proiession, including Mrs. Jich
mund, who can not be surpassed in
her skillful handling of the Robert

No one will ever know exactly how much
