Cleveland w a 5sK USED by the NATIVES Of Southern California, CASCARINE. Made from the baric of a plant that Btows In Southern California and on the South Pacific coast. The bark was held in mica high esteem by the natives that they named and described it as "Sacred Bark," «nd was used by them in the cure of chronic constipation, liver, stomach and bowel troubles. Investigated in 1811 by the German botanist, Frederlch Pursh, in troduced as a medicine in 1877 by Dr. Bundy, of Calusa, Cal., and was made the object of special investigation by Doc tors Pearse and Hanson, in the United States; la France by Doctors Landowski and Dujardiu-Beaumetz at the Cochin hospital; Quoted by Virchow and Hirsch in 188S and the Persian medical journals In 1884. Cascarine Is a mild, tasteless and pleas ant laxative; does not stick to the teeth, and will not interfere with the most deli- cate stomach. Its action is mild, in vigorating, and does not gripe. It cures • the most obstinate and stubborn cases. If you feel Indisposed, tired, languid, if your head is dlEzy, if you have a pain in your back, a rumbling noise in your stomach end abdomen, or feel bloated and your food does not digest, or if you are nervous, can't sleep at night, take Cas carine, Continue the treatment for a short time, repeat it more or less oc casionally as may be necessary, and you will save doctor bills and preserve your health. Cascarine is guaranteed to do all that is claimed for it.

After hearing from Secretary Levings of the Minneapolis Gas company several times, the city board of equalization yes terday officially reduced the company's personal assessment from $847,000,* the fig ure set by the city assessor this year, to an even $500,000. The assessment last ' year was' $347,000. The company also pays taxes on $150,000 worth of real estate. The reduction was ordered by a margin of one vote, Alderman McCune and A. S. Adams voting against the proposition.

Wonderful yields of oil in the recently discovered gusher districts of Texas are attracting great notice and are not monopolized by capitalists. 'i Small investor*, who are putting in from $25 to $100 eftfch, are catching onto tbls opportunity and subscribing* liberally all over the country and starting founda tions for such fortunes. Minneapolis Is no exception. When the officers of a company are men of known Standing and the prospects of the company first-class, aa in the case of the Texas Standard Oil C 0.," the profits that may be expected are beyond, belief. They Bound like fairy stories, but are true nevertheless.

Rev. M. Palk GJertsen's conduct In Nor way is now being formally investigated by the board of deacons and trustees of the Trinity Norwegian Lutheran church. The first meeting was held last evening. Olaf Ness was made chairman and J. J. i Berge, secretary. A significant proceed ing was the passage of a resolution an jnouncing that the documents forwarded from Norway had been sent to Professor Georg Sverdrup personally and not to the congregation. It will be remembered that he was accused of withholding the documents from the rightful persons. This was a part of the conduct for which he was censured. In connection with this phase of the affair It may be stated that several who voted to censure Mr. SverI- drup have since apologized. The documents were turned over to Secretary Berge, who will be responsi ble for their safety. It is understood that the chief duty of the investigators will be to establish the authorship of the im moral letter to Mrs. Esther Paulson. If the committee should allow Mr. Gjertsen all the time he may require in securing evidence from Norway it may not be ready to report for two months or more. Tired mothers.

PLATERS OF NOTE ARE ENTERED Nine States Will Be Represented in the Games Played at Ex celsior. Men from nine states skilled in the art of waging battle on chess boards with kings, queens, knights and castles will meet in annual convention Aug. 12, at Excelsior, to struggle for the champion ship of the northwest. It will be a battle royal, inasmuch as the contestants are in a majority of cases champlonß in their own territory. During the week the tournament continues scien tific, amateur chess will be played. By the term amateur Is meant those who do not play the game In order to gain a live lihood. In this connection, however, there are but three players in the country who can be termed professionals. Among those who have signified their Intention of entering the contest are: Louis Udemann, Sidney P. Johnston, Chi cago; M. D. McGrath, Brookhaven, Miss.; Captain Rogers, formerly of Minneapolis, now a resident of Milwaukee; N. M. Mac- Leod, for many years champion of Canada, but now an enthusiastic chess player of St. Paul; M. M. Smith, the present Cana dian champion. A feature of the tournament will be one series of games played on board a steam launch that will carry the con testants around the lake. Arrangements have also been perfected by Treasurer E. P. Elliott, Minneapolis, for the entertainment of the visitors so that the tournament will also be in the nature of an outing for the contestants. The convention, according to present indications, will be the largest held by chessplayers sine© that in New York city in 1889, and it is expected that the skill displayed will be of such a high order that at the close of the congress the games will be printed in book form. Minneapolis is regarded as a good chess city and among the fifty members com prising its chess club several expert play ers are found. The prizes offered in the competition are: First, $100, and the title of champion of the northwest; sec ond, ?50; third, $25; fifth, $10. The rules of the American Chess Congress will gov ern. MAJOR HALSTEAD BETTER He la on the Way to Complete Re covery. Friends of Major Halstead, of the famous eHrmitage at Minnetonka, will rejoice to know that his illness is less serious than reported and he seems on the high road to complete recovery. For some time his health has not been good, but it is now quite up to the average. His recent ill ness dates from Memorial day. Following his usual custom he rowed down to Ex celsior for the exercises and coming back ■he either lost his way in the darkness or was overcome by fatigue and could not reach home. Frank P. Nantz, of Zumbra, found him in the morning in his rowboat pulled up at the Nantz dock in an uncon scious state. He was taken in and given every attention, remaining about two weeks at Mr. Nantz's residence. He got well enough to go home and has been ther alone since, living in his usual man ner. All through the summer, Major Hal stead has had his usual throng of visitors who have shown him many kind attentions. His neighbors also regard him as their special charge and look in on him fre quently if he does not call upon them, so he does not lack for kind attentions. ON AN OLD LINE BASIS The Bankers' Life, of St. Paul, Changes Its Plan. Officers and directors of the Bankers' Life association, of St. Paul, at the an nual meeting of the company yesterday, voted to place the corporation under the general insurance laws of the state and a resolution was passed providing for re- Incorporation.

OFF FOR BUFFALO TONIGHT.

V., to be gone one week. Chicago will be reached to-morrow noon and after dinner the band will re sume its trip on the Nickel Plate Line's "Eastern Express," for Buffalo, to be reached Wednesday morning at 7:35. The band will proceed at once to the Pan- American exposition where it will be en camped at Camp Pillmore taking part each day in the official parades and concerts at the big show. On Friday morning the band will parade Buffalo's principal down town streets under police escort, Saturday night it will play at the midway, and on Sunday will visit Niagara Falls, giving a concert in the afternoon in the park.

Wasson, secretary of the board of education of the town of Pond Creek, Okla., was received by J. W. Olsen, superintendent of public instruc tion, to-day: Dear Sir: Will you kindly cite us to a first-class teacher for the principal teacher in our high school? We want a strong, healthy and active young lady, who is up to-date and well educated. We want her to be of known reputation aa a successful teacher. THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL. A WORD TO SKIPPERS A Letter to Them Reviews the Omaha Road Affair. RECIPROCITY IS THE SUGGESTION On the Bull That Shippers Should Show Their Appreciation of Their Friend*. Chairman S. H/Hall, of the public af fairs committee of the Commercial club, has addressed a letter to the shippers call ing their attention to the fruitless result of the conference with the Omaha road. The letter reviews the fact that St. Paul has been receiving most of the favors from the railroad companies while Minne apolis has been furnishing most of the business. The Omaha receives over $2, --000,000 more business annually from Min neapolis than St. Paul and employs from 1,300 to 1,500 more men in St. Paul than in Minneapolis. It declines to do anything even in the smallest way toward equaliz ing the benefits between the two cities. The letter also reviews the freight rate question showing the discrimination against Minneapolis in favor of Chicago and citing illustrations where the charge for hauling 10,000 pounds of merchandise a given distance from Minneapolis is twice as much as for the same amount of mer chandise the same distance from Chicago. The Omaha road dodges responsibility on the ground that the service complained of Is on the Chicago & North-Western system —the part of the North-Western system that controls the Omaha. The committee is satisfied that Minneapolis loses $25,000 in trade per month on account of the Oma ha's Sioux City division trains running into St. Paul first instead of Minneapolis. The letter concludes: We are furthermore satisfied that it would not o»st that company anything extra to speak of to run these trains into Minneapolis first, as was rejuested, yet they decline even this insignificant concession. The question naturally arises, what are we going to do about it? Vanderbilt is reported to have said in connection with some railroad controversy: "The public be d d." Van derbilt interests are very large in the North - Western system, and it would seem as though the spirit of that sentiment, localized to apply to Minneapolis, describes the situation from an Omaha-North-Western standpoint. There are certain railroads centering here that are friendly to our interests, spend money here in some fair proportion to the benefits derived from our business, and have in the'past been largely instrumental in ob taining or us such concessions as we have obtained, and stand ready now to do all they can to assist us in our fight against Chicago and St. Louis competition. Self-protection, as well as due appreciation of past favors, should lead al! shippers to show that they appreciate their friends and believe in the rineiple of reciprocity. Have you any advice or suggestion to make? If so, we shall be pleased to hear from you. SOME BALLOON LEAKED Minnetonkans Surprised by a "Har vest Home" Announcement. The announcement that the Mln netonka season would close with a spectacular harvest home celebration was a great surprise to the "prominent men 1' on both sides of the lake and the origin of the plan seems shrouded In mystery. Everyone disclaims the credit of hitting upon this original and sensational idea Everyone says that, if there ia to be such a thing undertaken by any responsible and representative organization or per sons, he will gladly co-operate but that he knows nothing about the matter. The Lafayette Club, whose support was claimed for the scheme, will not con sider it unless an authoritative proposition requesting its support is laid before it. J. C. Bliel had been assured that this would be done before he expressed his approval of the idea and agreed to lay such a proposition before the governing board of the club. The railroads are never averse to plans that promise to bring extra patrons to the lake and readily pledged their co-opera tion in any plan looking to the attracting of a crowd, but beyond this they have no agency in the matter or knowledge of it- MAY SUCCEED OTIS Gen. MacArthnr May Direct the De partment of the Dakota*. Major General Arthur Mac Arthur, ad jutant-general for the department of the Dakotas for several years, now en route from Manila to San Francisco, will prob ably be assigned to his former place at St. Paul. At present Major General Otis is in command. Since General Wade was or dered to Manila, the department of the lakes and the department of the Dakotas have been administered by one head. A REWARD OFFERED For the Arrest of Augrust Mortz's I iiknown Assailant. A reward of $300 for the arrest and convictiion of the holdup man who shot August Mortz, a farmer living near Elk River, on Aug. 2, has been offered by Governor Van Sant. camp and will leave Buffalo in a special car attached to the "Pacific Express," via the Erie railroad, and the home trip will h». begun. Chicago will be reached Tues %y morning at 7:35 and a feature of the visit to Chicago will be a parade through the principal down town streets in the afternoon. The last stage of the tour will be from Chicago to Minneapolis, leav ing Chicago Tuesday night at 10 o'clock on the "Fast Mail," via "The North western Line," Minneapolis to be reached Wednesday morning at 9. The band has been anticipating this en gagement for weeks and months and ex pects to make a good impression at the ex position.) The executive staff of The Minneapolis Journal Newsboys' band is as follows: Director, Prof. C. C. Heintzeman; press agent, H. L. Knappen; manager, A. W. Warnock. We don't want a "has-been" or "going-to be," but an "izzer," a prime success now. The effusions of college professors and county superintendents are played out with us as recommendations. We will pay $50 per month for the right kind of a teacher. I am an old teacher and warm friend of education, and of the schools in our city. I want a good-looking, neat and attractive person. I have girls in the schools, and, of course, we all have children there! We want Borne one who is an attractive ex ample for the children and a good instructor and managw, too. j CAIN SHOT TO KILL One of His Bullets Barely Missed Tuscany's Heart. MORE COLUMBIA THEATER LIFE The Trouble Arose Over Attention Paid by Tuscany to Cain's Actress Wife. Finding his wife in a room at the Grand Central hotel, on Second street S, with Lawrence Tuacany, Jr., last night, John C. Cain, manager of Sodini's Columbia thea ter, fired several shots at the man and at hiß wife. One of them took effect in Tus cany'3 breast, just below the heart, but it is believed that he 'Will survive. Cain and his wife, who is an actress and bears the stage name Pearl Blondell, were arrested a few minutes after the shooting. Cain's wfie did not apear at the Colum bia at the opening of the performance last night and her husband went in search of her. He found her at the Grand Central hotel in the room with Tuscany. He broke into the room and pulling a 38-cali bre revolver emptied the chambers, but only one shot took effect. Tuscany ran down stairs and over to the Central police station, clad only in his underwear, and told his story to the officers, who hurried to the hotel and arrested Mr. and Mrs. Cain. When Cain appeared for arraignment in the municipal court this morning. Judge Holt concluded not to admit him to bail and continued the case till Aug. 13, when it is expected that the authorities will be able to make a definite charge. FREE RIDES TO SCHOOL NEW THING FOR RURAL PUPILS The Plan of Combining Weak School District* Will Be Tried TliU Year. State Superintendent Olsen announces that this winter he will put into practi cal operation the law passed by the last legislature which provides for the union of weak country school districts into one large district, the children to be carried to and from school in carryalls paid for out of the combined district funds. Mr. Olsen declares that it is almost impossi ble to get people to make the change, notwithstanding the fact that the new system is far preferable to the old meth ods as regards both economy and con venience. In a country school with a score of scholars, one teacher runs the entire gamut from primer to algebra and consequently is not able to give thorough .attention to any one study. By combining districts, more teachers would be em ployed and the expense would not be any heavier. A saving would also be made in the cost of schoolhouse and furnishings, not to mention the items of light and heat. WHAT ARMY RULES SAY They Place General Amen ast on ' : the List. ' Commissary General Sherman S. Smith says he will not appeal to the governor to settle the dispute between himself and Mayor Ames, * surgeon general on the governor's staff, regarding the matter of precedence. Admitting that the surgeon general does claim the honor of being chief of staff during the temporary ab sence of the adjutant general. General Smith asserts that the proposition of precedence is too well denned by military > law to need any settlement. Adjutant General Libbey, without tak ing any part in the controversy which has been disturbing the equanimity of the I other generals, gives it as his opinion that General Smith is correct and after ! referring to United States military regu lations outlines the order of precedence as follows: Adjutant general, Inspector general, judge advocate, quartermaster general, commissary general, and, last of all, sur geon general. This is authoritative and though It may hurt the feelings of the genial doctor, it is offered In the hope that peace may again resume its sway in the ranks of the governor'a gold lace warriors. THE HALL SATISFACTORY So Prononnced by a Christian Church Representative. Rev. I. J, Spencer of Lexington, Ky., president of the American Christian Mis sionary society Is in the city interested in matters connected with the coming convention of the Christian church. In company with Chairman Fred R. Salis bury of the Commercial Club convention committee, and the members of the local committee on arrangements he inspected the exposition building yesterday. Mr. Spencer was much pleased with the hall and especially its acoustic proper ties. Few changes will be necessary for the accommodation of the large number of delegates who will attend the conven tion. He regards the exposition building as the best hall, taking everything into consideration, that the national gather ings of the Christian church have yet been held in. Mr. Spencer believes that the active work being done by the local com mittees will result in a large attendance at the convention. He i 3 pleased with Minneapolis and considers it an ideal convention city. THEY WANT TO TEACH Many Candidates for Certificates Are .., : , . Taking Their Examinations.

NEEDS OF MINERS The Chief Is That of a Government Department. THE BOISE, IDAHO, CONGRESS Profeiior C. W. Hall of the Univer sity, Jmt Back, Tell* of Its Work. Professor C. W. Hall of the state uni versity haa returned from the Interna tional Mining congress at Boiße, Idaho, to which he was appointed a delegate by Governor Van Sent. C. H. Pratt, a former resident of Minenapolis, now living at Boise, acted with Professor Hall on the delegation. Says the professor: "The states that sent especially large delegations were Colorado, Utah, Idaho and Montana. About 200 were present, chiefly practical miners.
