that the offer came at an opportune time,

by the diocesan convention. He added:
"As I under&taDd it,. Bishop Edsail has
accepted the proposition to come to Minne

indicated that he •will come here. All this
is contingent, however, on the confirma

Truck Farmers Adjacent to Minne
apolis Lose $9,000.
In Some Instances the Lou I. Total
—Prices Go Up in Come
Prices of market garden stuff have al
ready advanced as a result of the damage
worked by the two storms which visited
the region about Minneapolis, Monday
evening. It is estimated that the loss
from damage by hall will reach $9,000, al
though it Is difficult yet to determine
what the salvage is. Only a few carried
The gardeners at the market to-day
were not as blue as they were yesterday,
before they had an opportunity to look
their farms over. In many cases the loss
will not come up to expectations, and in
rare Instances it Is In excess of the esti
mate made yesterday. For instance, E.
M. Libby, a half-mile this side of Brook
lyn Center, thought yesterday that the
storm had killed his eight acres of peas,
which had not yet been touched.
It is learned to-day that the tract was
sowed to telephone peas, which is a late
pea and may develop a good deal of salv
age before the harvest comes.
Some Details.
Peas, cucumbers, lettuce, tomatoes and
cabbage suffered severely, in fact all veg
etables that are ready for market. Pie
plant, the sturdy rhubarb, suffered least,
although samples were shown to-day
where the stalk was cut off and where
dents had been made in the merchantable
part of the plant the size of the hail
i stones.
It is difficult to determine whether the
first or the second storm did the more
damage. The limits of each are easily de
fined. Henry Hawkes, on the Eden prai
rie road, three miles from the city limits,
had only a little lettuce spoiled.
E. A. Leathers, four blocks west of the
store, suffered little loss. Tom Phipps
had a fine truck farm which received the
brunt of the hail. Everything was cut to
pieces. Gardener Lindblom, at Robbins
dale, will plow his potatoes under and sow
to millet.
The potato plants were too badly cut to
bloom again. Jack Mitchell on the Brook
lyn Center road near the Soo crossing had
his pea crop damaged. Mr. Luger, on the
Crystal Lake road, lost nearly all the
glass in his house.
Mr. Greenburg on the same road lost
$1,000 worth of stuff and will have to wait
for the late vegetables before he can
market anything. Charles Garvey in
Richfield lost a field of young cabbage
which was ready for market. Gut of the
lot he saved about two crates. The loss
will be at least $500.
One farmer named Oilman did not save
I enough vegetables for one meal.
The workhouse farm and greenhouse
j suffered severely from the first hail storm.
Windows were broken in various build
ings, occasioning great loss. The farm
I yields an annual income of about $3,000.

Local Christian Endeavorers After
International Convention.
Delegates Going to Cincinnati Thin
Year Determined to Secure
the Prl«e.
Minneapolis Christian Endeavorers are
preparing to go after the international
convention for 1903. The local unions are
anxious to repeat the success of 1891 when
the first great Christian Endeavor con
vention was held in Minneapolis. This
year's meeting will be held in Ccincinnati
and a large delegation of Minneapolis
workers will be in attendance. It is their
intention to take with them a large supply
of illustrated literature descriptive of the
attractions of Minneapolis and to secure
the best possible support from the busi
ness bodies and municipal authorities as
well as an invitation from Governor Van
Sant on behalf of the state.
Since the convention of "91 Minneapolis
has been a great favorite with the Chris
tian Endeavor hosts all over the country.
The fact that the energy of the local com
mittees made the meeting by many thou
sands the greatest in attendance up to
that time and started the ball rolling for
greater conventions has made this city a
Christian Endeavor stronghold in the eyes
of the country. The Minneapolis delega
tion will tell the Cincinnati gathering that
they are ready to again add to the mo
mentum of the movement in 1903.
Christian Church Convention.
The local committee in charge of the
Christian church convention which meets
here in October is perfecting arrange
ments gradually. It will see that the
convention is well advertised at Cincin
nati during the Christian Endeavor gath
ering. Some new literature for circulation
in the east is being prepared. Minne
apolis members of the Christian church
will attend several church gatherings in
various parts of the country this summer
to arouse interest in the convention. The
local committee on arrangements is mak
ing no specific estimate as to the attend
ance, but hopes to make the convention
here the largest in the history of the
They Send in SOO Letters of Recom
mendation—Choice Soon
to Be Made.
Some fifteen entomologists in various
parts of the United States have applied for
the position at the head of the depart
ment of entomology in the state agricul
tural college, made vacant a few weeks
ago by the death of Dr. Lugger. The
applications have been sent to Dean Lig
gett, of the college, who, with President
Northrop and Governor Van Sant com
prise the committee of the board of re
gents to whom has been delegated the
work of recommending a successor to the
lamented Professor Lugger. Dean Lig
gett is now busily at work tabulating
these applications, with the accompanying
recommendations, and as the latter num
ber some five hundred, the task is no
small one. Dean Liggett will have these
applications ready for the consideration
of his committee when President Northrop
returns from the east, about the middle of
The recommendation of the committee
will be made to the board of regents soon.
It is probable that this recommendation
will be the choice of the regents. The
new entomologist will' doubtless be named -
before Sept. 1 in order that he may take
up his work at the beginning of the col
lege year.
At present the work of the department
of entomology is in charge of Professor E.
B. Forbes. Mr. Forbes is a young man of
much promise, and is the son of Dr. J. C.
Forbes, Illinois' famous entomologist.
Four years ago he came to Minneapolis
and worked for a year as assistant to Pro
fessor Lugger, in which capacity he served
the state college for a year. He is fa
miliar with all the work of the depart
ment and was especially fitted to take
charge where Dr. Lugger left off. At
present he is engaged in battling the
grasshoppers in northwestern Minnesota,
a work that had for years been conducted
under the direction of Dr. Lugger.
Leaves the Law to Engage in the
Manufacturing BusineHM.
Carman Smith left Minneapolis last
night to become a resident of Bay City,
Mich. Mr. Smith has been practicing
law in Minneapolis for fifteen years or
more with success, but upon the offer of
attractive business chances, has concluded
to abandon the profession of law for
manufacturing. Pittsburg people have
organized a company, of which Captain
Charles W. Brown, formerly of Minne
apolis, is president, for the manufacture
at Bay City of potash and alcohol from the
waste of the beet sugar factories in
Michigan. Mr. Smith is to be the secre
tary and treasurer of this company and
have charge of its business. He has al
ready purchased a site and a plant is in
the course of construction. The institu
tion will be known as the Michigan
Chemical company. In addition to the
by-products of the sugar factories already
mentioned, the company proposes to
manufacture salt from salt wells which it
will control at that point.
Leaves Board of Corrections and
Charities to Go to New York.
J. P. Jackson, who for the past three years j
has been secretary of the state board of chari- |
ties and corrections, has resigned his position
and will go to New York city to accept a
place with the associated charities of that
city. Mr. Jackson takes this action in antici- ,
patioa of the dissolution of the hoard of !
charities and corrections July 31, when the j
board of control will perform the duties
which have heretofore devolved upon the
board of charities and corrections. For the
short time intervening it has been arranged
that Secretary Jackson's position shall be
filled by W. A. Gates, state agent for the

Hay Crop Will Be Light
Farmers predict a light hay crop. The recent rains, they say, helped the grass
on the uplands but did a corresponding damage to the marsh grass and that grow
ing in soil inclined to be moist. Haying time will be here in two weeks.
There is an increase in the number of hay presses this year and the disposition
cf the farmer is toward baled hay. The old days of the hay market when the loose
hay came in numerous loads are gone. Hay has been scarce for two years. The
farmer has had less to market. He is averse to sending his team a long distance
to take chances on the local demand. He will bale all he can this season. The em
ployment offices are beginning to secure men for the haying season. The ruling
wages are $1.50 per day and board.. Last year men were scarce. This year they
are more so.

He Now Has His Eyes on Harvest
Ambition In to Get Free Railroad
Fare and Then Bolt to
the FieldM.
Laborers are already beginning to
svarm into Minneapolis in anticipation of
the work that will be offered later in the
haying and harvesting fields in Minnesota
and the Dakotas. The result is that there
are many idle men about Washington and
lower Nlcollet and Hennepin avenues, who
give to citizens who happen down towards
Bridge square the idea that the much
talked-of prosperity has no existence.
There is plenty of work for all comers,
employment agents say, and they are of
fering low railroad rates, steady work and
good wages to any who will work, but the
laborer of to-day is a more independent
individual tha* the laborer of a few years
ago, and is able, not being impecunious,
to select his "job" with much more care.
The consequence is a much greater demand
than supply.
Planning Farm Work.
It is too early for the farmers to engage
hands for the fields, but the men them
selves are looking forward to the work
now almost in sight. The laborer keeps
his weather eye out on the crop reports,
and as long as they continue as optimistic
as they have for the past month, he is able
to hold off from them any jobs which pay
well but which are "harder" and less lu
crative than harvesting.
The Shrewd Laborer.
lowa, Wisconsin and Illinois, as well as
southern Minnesota, are sending to Min
neapolis for men for railroad .work. Con
tractors are way behind with their work
because of their inability to secure hands.
They are willing to pay wages that under
other conditions would be considered ab
normally high. But the laborer now on
the market will consider no proposition
that will take him farther east or south.
He is looking for work in the Dakotas, so
be will be on the field when harvesting be
gins, and ever since early spring when re
ports favorable to good crops were first
published, he has been working towards
the states to the west. To-day, labor
agents estimate, there are almost enough
men in the Dakotas to harvest their crops,
but workmen now loafing or taking "short
time" jobs which they can "jump" when
the work in the fields is offered, do not
believe it, and there are hundreds in and
near Minneapolis ready to run west when
the field work opens. Railroads, although
they need men in Minnesota and North
and South Dakota, appreciate that all the
men want is to ship west under contract
to work for the company, free fare, and
then when harvest begins, desert and en
list under the farmers. The result is no
"free fare" is granted any men west or
north, but every laborer who "ships"
must pay a low rate, something like 1 cent
a mile.
Haying Season.
The first work that will be available for
the "hands" is when haying commences.
This will be between July 1 and 15, but
farmers unwilling to be caught short, will

Jay V. Daniels Talks of the Trend of
Trade in London.
Jay V. Daniels, well-known as a former
Minneapolis newspaper man, but for the past
year or more London representative of a
Chicago publishing firm, is in Minneapolis
for a few days visiting his mother. He came
to Minneapolis direct from London and will
return there in September.
Mr. Daniels declares the Englishmen are
succumbing all along the line to American
push and enterprise. Practically every field
is now filled by the American manufacturers,
who are "skinning" the natives very effect
ively. Representatives of seven firms w*re
on the boat coming back with Mr. Daniels,
and every one of them declared that his firm
was already doing more business in England,
after a few months location there, than the
biggest of the native competitors. This re
sult, Mr. Daniels declares, is inevitable in
view of the conservative business methods of
the English manufacturers. Their only re
course is to wake up and put some life and
enterprise into their business and fight the
Americans with their own weapons. A
peculiar feature of the situation, he days,
is that the Englishmen, hard even though
they are being pressed by their American
competitors, are growing to like the American
people more than ever. America and pretty
nearly everything American, he declares, is
appreciated in London as never before. The
average Englishman is coming to have a
great respect and admiration for the country,
its wealth, business methods and commercial,
financial and military resoutces.
The Boer war, says Mr. Daniels, has
reached the stage where no one in London
mentions it. Speak of it to an Englishman
and he quietly changes the subject.
A St. Paul Boy Is Hurried to
' St. Paul, the playground of mad dogs, has
developed another case of prospective hydro
phobia, and the 7-year-old son of T. F. Smith,
593 Iglehart street, has been hurried to the
Pasteur Institute at Chicago. He is supposed
to have been inoculated by a pet Irish terrier,
bitten by a stray dog with rabies, which ran
amuck on Marshall, Tglehart and St. Albans
streets, April 28, and was killed by Dr. W. T. |
Kelly. While the terrier did not bite young '
Smith, it frequently licked his face and >
hands before the disease had become marked. !
The boy had several scratches on his face
and hands and might easily have become in
flicted by the' dog's saliva, which is said to '
be most virulent and as certain to inoculate
a fresh scratch, or wound as a bite. j
A valuable horse belonging to C. D. An
drews of 693 E Third street, St. Paul, died
Monday of rabies. The horse was bitten by a |
black and ton terrier two weeks ago. Mon- I
day the horse became-nervous and snapped '
at its keeper. It bit the manger, and becom- j
ing furious in the evening, kicked the stall |
to fragments. It died during the niglit.
A milkman '. at Minnetonka a few days ago j
refused to keep .his. children within doors i
when there was smallpox in the family. The
neighbors complained to the authorities and
the quarantine is strictly enforced.

The Chair Painting Craze
Decorative art is the whole thing with Minneapolis housewives just now. The
paint brush as a household utensil is here to stay. Dealers who handle a certain
class of paint that can be put on old rocking chairs, in any way with almost any kind
of a brush and make the chairs look like new to-morrow are doing a big business.
The lady of the house has taken to art with a vengeance although she may be lack
ing in the ideas and skill that go to make a landscape artist. She is there with
both hands at "hand-painted" chairs.
One well-known Minneapolis business man came down town this morning with
the smell of paint in his clothes and a picture of despair in his face. He has been
waiting for two weeks now for the smell of paint to leave the house. But the story
is still continued. Like a conquering hero his wife, armed with a paint brush, is
doing the house in all colors from a brilliant red to an azure blue. She has changed
the color of everything in the house with the possible exception of washday and the
shawl that mother wore. He said he could stand it until she tried a green effect on
the refrigerator and attempted to give the library table, an heirloom in the family,
a quartet of yellow legs. He is consoled by the fact that there axe at least five
other men in his neighborhood who are being treated to the like doses of paint.
He thinks the malady -will run its course in a few months, but it makes him shud
der to think of his paint bill at the corner drug store.

Butter Scarce in Country
j There is an unusual scarcity of butter in many northwestern towns. Country
j merchants visiting Minneapolis say that the shipments of cream to thi3 city to be
j made into creamery butter is responsible for it. The idea of establishing cream
j stations for the purchase of cream from the farmers and for shipping it to a central
point for manufacture into butter is a new idea and is working well. The farmer
takes it because he realizes a greater profit on cream sold in that manner than on
his home-made butter. As a result, in place of an over-supply of butter. •
j towns can now secure hardly enough of. the home-made article to supply the h'
I demand.
It is in June that the country merchant usually begins to growl about the ava
lanche of butter, good, bad and indifferent, that is brought to his counter. He takes
it all, not daring to discriminate between good and bad. The price goes down, down,
until the farmer's wife imagines that the storekeeper is trying to beat her, and the
storekeeper endeavors to find a market for the product of the churn that will enable
j him "to get out whole." He generally packs it in barrels and jobs it off at a low
j price as "packing stock." When it makes its reappearance it Is labeled good cream -
! cry.
With the farmer shipping his cream to Minneapolis all this is chanced. Instead
of the dealer's having more butter than he knows how to dispose of, he is experienc
ing a butter famine, something that he did not dream of a year ago. In some
towns near Minneapolis the housewife has a difficult task in getting enough butter for
the table.

Diamond Jo Line Takes 116,000
Pounds to St. LuuN.
W. J. Burnett, of the Northwestern
Hide and Pur company, recently made a
purchase of wool amounting to 116,000
pounds, most of it being shipped to St.
Louis by steamer. This is the largest
purchase recorded this year and is the
largest wool shipment made by steamer for
years. Mr. Burnett says that as soon as
the railroads learned that he intended to
ship by boat they reduced rates at once,
