State News.
As the result of a dynamite explo
sion in the Laura mine, three miles
north of Hibbing, Andrew Selin was
instantly killed, his body being horri
bly mangled.
It is stated that the Great Northern
will spend $6,000,000 during 1906 for
new equipment for its lines. The
rapid development of its territory
compels this outlay.
At the graduation exercises of the
state agricultural college one hundred
and twenty-seven young men and
women were handed sheepskins, certi
fying to their ability to scientifically
manage a farm or farm house.
The petition of 2.060 of the legal
voters of Jackson county requesting
that the county seat of Jackson county
be removed to Lakefield has been
filed in the county auditor's office.
The petition contains 240 more names
than is required to make 60 per cent
of the legal voters at the last general
The date for the joint celebration
oi St. Paul's semicentennial and the
laying of the corner stone of the new
Auditorium has been changed from
March 30 to March 31, and Mayor
Robert Smith has issued a proclama
tion to that effect, asking all business
houses to close during the later half
of the day.
Earnest Lindgren, a brakeman liv
ing at Henning, fell under a Soo train
and thirty-five cars passed over his
body. He fell close to the rail and lay
perfectly still and escaped death.
His arm was cut off, but he got up
and walked a short distance in a
dazed condition after the accident.
He may recover.
Eight hundred attended the sixth an
nual banquet ot the Garfield Repub
lican club last Friday night at the
Masonic Temple hall in Duluth. More
than 200 guests came from the ranges
and Two Harbors sent a large dele
gation. The hall was not large
enough to accommodate everybody
and an overflow banquet was held at
a cafe.
A. W. Rankin, state inspector of
graded schools, will retire at the end
of the current school year, Aug. 1, to
accept a chair in the department of
pedagogy in the state university. He
was elected to the position a year or
two ago, but on account of the de
struction of the main building and the
cramped quarters left for the depart
ment, he did not enter on the work.
A deputy United States marshal has
served subpoenas at New Ulm on nine
widows of veterans of the civil war as
witnesses in a land-fraud trial to be
held at Sioux Falls April. Three
more subpoenas intended for former
residents of New Ulm will be served
on women in St. Paul, Minneapolis
and Northfield. The government in
its campaign against land frauds is
said to have discovered a scheme
operated with startling success in
many towns in southern Minnesota.
During the current school year the
sum of $41,304.10 was invested by the
schools and the state in public school
libraries, all of which went to the St.
Paul Book and Stationery company,
the contractors. August is the end
of the current school year, but the
further distributions of books has
ceased because the fund is exhausted.
In all, 68,155 volumes were distrib
uted, and these represent 2,033 orders.
Of the amount invested the districts
put in $22,130.75 and the state
Julius Blackstad, 17 years old, son
of Samuel Blackstad of St. James,
was killed in the town of Nelson,
Watonwan county. With a compan
ion, Fred Bottum, he was behind the
barn on the Blackstad farm, and the
boys had their shotguns with them.
Fred had his gun in his hand, but that
belonging to the Blackstad boy was
lying on the ground. Blackstad
picked it up by the muzzle and was
pulling it toward him when it was dis
charged and a large charge of No. 5
shot entered his left breast, causing
instant death.
"Shorty" Vesley has been released
form Beltrami county jail after the
charge of murder in the first degree
against him had been nolled by
bounty Attorney McDonald, who con
sidered the evidence against Vesley
insufficient to warrant a trial at this
time. This makes the third man who
has been arrested for the murder of
N. O. Dahl and daughter Aagot,
which occurred at the former's cabin
near Quiring in April, 1903. Paul
Fournier and Eugene Caldwell were
the other two men arrested. Mystery
of the deepest hue seems to surround
the murder of the Dahls and up to the
present time the authorities have been
unable to find enough evidence
against any one man to do anything
in the case.
Burned In Camp.
Albert Fennett, a foreman at the
McGrath camps on upper Snake in
Aitkin county, Wyas burned to death on
the morning of the 18th inst. He at
tempted to kindle a fire in the camp
office with kerosene and an explosion
was the consequence, which set fire to
his clothing and the building.Mora
Two Dogs the Limit.
The Great Northern, Northern Pa
cific and Soo lines have adopted a
rule that a passenger cannot check
more than two dogs in the baggage
car. Any additional dogs that he
may have with him will have to be
sent by express. These lines enter
the best hunting fields in the United
States, and they have been slow to re
strict sportsmen in any respect. In
fact, they have done all they could to
encourage hunters to go to the
fields. It is rather hard on the bag
gageman where too many dogs are
carried in his car, although he makes
quite a revenue out of the business,
for he is always given a liberal tip by
the owner of the dog carried.
Up to the present time the three
roads named have permitted hunters
to take as many dogs along as de
sired without extra charges. It of
ten happens that one man will want to
take three or more dogs with him, one
or two as students and the others for
actual work. In numerous instances
it has made the baggage car a verit
able dog kennel, and the baggageman
hasn't had time or room to devote to
his regular duties. With so many
animals in the car it is hard to watch
them, and sometimes one will break
loose and then there is a suit for
damages. Bird dogs are frequently
valued at hundreds of dollars, and
one of them lost is a serious matter.
Hunters will not be affected, of
course, until the shooting season
opens in the fall. Those who will
run up against the new ruling first are
the dog trainers. Before the hunting
season opens the trainers take the
young and inexperienced dogs to the
country and teach them the art of
hunting. The number thus taken
ranges from three or four dogs to two
or three dozen.
Law Governing Saloons.
Chapter 14 of the new code says
that liquor must not be sold on any
day between 11 in evening and 5 in
the morning, nor on any general,
special, or primary election day nor
at any hour on Sunday nor to a
minor, a student of any school, an
intoxicated person, or habitual drunk
ard, a public prostitute, a spendthrift,
or an improvident person within one
year after being notified. Licenses

selling or furnishing intoxicating
liquors to a minor, habitual drunk
ard, spendthrift or improvident person
after being notified. All public drink
ing places shall be kept quiet and or
derly, and no person whom the sale of
liquor is forbidden shall be allowed
to frequent any such place. For vio
lation of this last clause the penalty
is not less than $10 and costs, and the
license becomes void.
License postedEvery keeper of a
licensed drinking place shall keep his
license posted conspicuously in such
drinking place.
Games prohibitedNo gambling,
playing for money or its representa
tive or other thing of value, shall be
allowed in any drinking place or in
any room connected with it, nor any
tables except pool and billiard tables,
nor any slot machines or other gam
bling devices. No game of any kind,
except pool and billiards, and no
throwing of dice, shall be allowed
any such place or room. Penalty for
violation, $10 to $100 and costs. For
selling without license, not less than
$50 or 30 days in jail. Every person
who lets a building knowing it to be
used as an unlicensed drinking place
is equally liable to not less than $50
Do You. Smoke "Coffin Nails""
School boys, peruse carefully the
following and take heed thereof:
"On last Tuesday one of my boys
came to school with two packages of
cigarette papers. We put them into
a pint bottle and nearly filled it with
water by Thursday it was a thick
solution, so thick that the liquid
would hardly run out of the bottle.
The boys caught a mouse and gave
him about a third of a teaspoonful.
He never lived to leave the boy's
hands. The boys were convinced
that it was poisonous, but the girls
declared that the boys squeezed the
mouse so hard that it died. So on
Friday the boys came to the school
with three sparrows and two mice.
We took them one at a time and gave
them a third of a teaspoonful. The
birds flew around the room for a
short time, then fell helpless on the
floor and died in ten minutes. The
mice ran around the room for a while
as though nothing had gone wrong,
then fell into a fit from which they
never recovered. ""A Teacher" in

Torture By Savages.

some of the savage tribes in the Phil
ippines subject their captives, re

Shirking a Public Duty.
Dr. Charles Eliot Norton's argument
in a\ or of hastening death in the case
of a mortal disease A\here the patient
leally longs to die is tenable perhaps
on humamta nan grounds, but once the
saci edness of life is lolated there can
be no telling -nheie this method will
bring up. The doctor even would in
clude old persons -whose minds have
become a chaos, while still other ad
vocates of this pimciple of lessening
human buttering propose to chloroform
the Mctims of accident One "angel"
of the slums declaies that she would
rather dispose of the starving children
of gieat cities a summary manner
than see them "living as they must, in
squalor and nnseiy'" But all this is
setting asme the sound doctrine,
"While theie is life there is hope."
The sulferings Mhich these kind peo
ple would alleviate are terrible to think
about, but yet are not always so bad
as they seem Maimed people and oth
ers undei the torture, of pain do at
times in their hystena pray for death.
Yet in innumerable cases the apparent
ly hopeless ones get well So also slum
childien giow into useful citizens and
not only forever after a^oid the slums
and the vices leading there, but brave
ly tackle slum eMls themselves.
Common sense as viell as science de
clares that many of the conditions of
modem life -which produce mental,
moral and physical -wrecks may be
lessened. Accidents are not provided
for in the nature of things neither are
premature decay, disease and hopeless
Society is often responsible, and cura
ble evils are tolerated and perpetuated
because of a public shrinking from
"the fuss" that would be stirred up in
the work of reform The world is all

happy but, to paraphrase Burns,
"Man's indifference to man makes
countless thousands mourn." Anyway
drastic measures for the prevention of
abnormalities plainly due to the rage
for progress would seem more humane
than drastic measures to put them out
of sight when their presence becomes
Loblolly Pine.
In a report recently issued by the
bureau of foiest serMce the subject of
loblolly pine lumbering in eastern Tex
as is treated fully. The great demand
in recent years for southern pine has
led to a recognition of the value of
loblolly pme for uses where only long
leaf pine had been employed. About
eight ears ago it was discovered that
the sappy loblolly absorbs chemicals
for preservation better than other fa
vorite kinds. For interior finish it re
ceives and holds paint readily and after
being kiln dried does not swell and
shrink ith the changes in the moisture
of the air as do the harder pines.
The output of the Te\as lumber
mills loblolly pine finds a market in
the central belt ot states, although it
is often known by another name. The
report in question says that objection
to it is based chiefly on a prejudice in
favor of shoit leaf and long leaf pine,
formed -nuen there was an abundance
of this material. Loblolly is sometimes
called old field pine, because it springs
up and thrives In abandoned fields. It
grows in drying swamps, and the cost
of logging it is higher than for pines

Anglican Bishop Awdry of south To

the London Times impugning the com

Race suicide England, as shown
by the declining birth rate, is puzzling
the best minds of the nation. Food is
said to be cheap and abundant, and
that fact banishes the old theory that

grain. One writer says that "re*nt, the
rates and taxes" have more to do with
it than the question of food supply.
