police a few days ago. and who is thought
to be demented, was taken to his home in
Greswold, Mo., yesterday. When first
taken to the hospital he was unable to
speak and his pulse rate was very high.
In other respects he seemed to be strong
and healthy. Later, however, he was
seized with violent insanity and* he was
strapped to his bed. By yesterday his
condition had so much improved that he
was released.

Deputy sheriffs of Hennepin county are

looked.upon by them as a sinecure. In
deed, from the stories some of them tell,
it would seem that they were up against,,
an unpleasant game. *
Deputy Frank Johnson has the saddest
tale to relate. He states that while hur
rying along the street yesterday, intent
upon the discharge of his duty, an angry
canine, either recognizing his master's
enemy or urged to the attack by some
concealed enemy, rushed at him. Frank
tried to make a get-away, but before he
could reach a place of safety the big
brute had, with an utter disregard for ap
pearances, made rags out of a portion of
the officer's nether garments and burled
his fangs in the fleshy part of the tax
collector's right leg. Mr. Johnson is now
laid up for repairs. The doctor says the
wound is not dangerous.

KOHLER IS ACQUITTED
St. Paul Man, Accused of Murder of
Jos. Karr, Goes Free.
Joseph Kohler of St. Paul, accused of
the murder of Joseph Karr last May, is
a free man. After about five hours' de
liberation the jury last night returned a
verdict of not guilty and the prisoner,
apparently much surprised and effected by
the result of the trial, left immediately for
his home.
While under the influence of liquor May
5, Kohler shot and killed Joseph Karr,
who was walking down Front street in
company with three friends. One of thefarmers'
party addressed a question to Kohler,
who replied with a bullet which proved
fatal to Karr. The defendant's attorneys
made no attempt to deny the shooting,
but contended that Kohler's condition was
such that he was not responsible for hisstate
deeds.

Prof. Frankfurter Finds Valuable
Products Going to Waste on
Pacific Coast. -
Big Fir Stumps Yield Turpentine,
Tar, Charcoal and Gas
Worth $200.
A stump of the great Douglas fir. This
stump is eight or nine feet in diameter,
ten feet in height. T o remove it costs
$75 or $80. If it is burned out the re
sulting ashes will deprive the soil of agri
cultural value for a period of years. The
stump is -worse than worthless.
Hereafter this stump may be removed
without injuring the soil. The stump
may then be cheaply transformed into
products that can be sold for $200 at least
perhaps $300.
And such stumps now cover thousands
of acres in Washington and Oregon.
The same transformation, from refuse
into money, can be wroughjb with the vast
amount of waste logs and lumber now
destroyed in saw mills along the Pacific
coast.
The great value of these abandoned
stumps will be pointed out in a. paper to
be read June 29 at Cleveland before the
American Chemical society by Dr. George
P. Frankforter, dean of the school of
chemistry at the state university. The
paper will treat of "Turpentine Pitch and
Other By-Products in Northern Pine and
the Douglas Fir." The same paper will
announce the discovery of a new and
superior turpentine.
Dr. F/ankforter has been investigating
the Douglas fir products on behalf of J.
W. Clark of New Whatcom, Wash., and
his brother-in-law, Charles F. Gordon,
president of the Minneapolis Dry Goods
company.
Stumps Rich In Pitch.
It is the pitch in Douglas fir that has
proved to be so valuable. It was the same
pitch heretofore that made much of the
fir so valueless. Any part of the tree
that contained an excess of pitch could
not be used for lumber. Hence the tree
has usually been cut off ten feet above
the ground, fifteen feet, even twenty feet,
according to the amount of pitch in the
lower part of the trunk. Even after the
logs have been hauled to a mill, par.t of
them have often been found to be so
pitchy that they were thrown away.
That the pitch contained commercial
products has been sufficiently well known,
but the importance of those products has
been revealed by Professor Frankforter.
He was surprised to find that no less than
40 per cent of the abandoned stump is
pitch, and that this pitch produces a tur
pentine with which the turpentine now
manufactured cannot be compared.
New Product Smells Good.
The new turpentine has all the chemical
and medicinal qualities of the ordinary
product, but is free from the disagreeable
odor and the equally disagreeable taste,
that have prevented the more general use
of turpentine in medicine and in the arts.
The odor of the fir turpentine is mild and
balsamicalmost a perfume. The taste
is beguiling. It might, flavor a new chew
ing gum or draw forth Olympian refresh
ment from a soda water fountain..
Each of the fir stumps, Dr. Frankforter
estimates, contains, on an average, five
or six cords of wood, and the value of the
by-products from each cord would range
from $40 to $50. Forty per cent of theSt.
wood would be pitch, of which 20 per cent
could be resolved into turpentine, 30 per
cent in tar oil, and 50 per cent into com
mon tar. This tar is of excellent quality
and finds readywsale on the. Pacific coast.
A minor product is pyroligneour acid, con-7
taining acetic acid. -
The proportion of pitch is much smaller
in the white pine of Minnesota and the
stumps of the white pine, less than half
the diameter of the fir, are cut off just
above the ground.
All the foregoing products of the fir can
be removed by burning the wood in re137,-
torts according to the process known as
"destructive distillation."
Not the least marvelous fact is that in
the very process of distillation the fir
gives out a gas which affords sufficient
fuel to maintain the process.
After the by-productsturpentine, tar
oil, tar, acids, gas, etc., have been re
moved a charcoal is left which can be
sold at a good profit. The whole of the
fir, in other words, may be converted into
something saleable. There is no loss.
Illuminating Gas, Too.
And to cap the economic climax, Pro
fessor Frankforter announces that suf
ficient illuminating gas can be extracted
from the fir pitch to compete with the
product of gas coal. Already, in fact, half
a dozen towns in the Douglas fir district
have taken steps to establish gas plants
that will sell the brilliant light concealed
in old fir stumps.
Thus it appears that the abandoned and
abused stumps of Washington and Ore
gon, the very refuse of the saw mills, can
easily be converted into illuminating, gas
of the best quality that none of the fir
will be wholly lost but that even the
residum of the gas retorts will provide
charcoal, acetic acid, tar oil, tar, and a
turpentine more valuable than any yet
produced.
A new source of turpentine is of partic
ular importance at the. present time when
the output of the "turpentine orchards"
in the southern states is decreasing year
by year.'' For the United States supplies
three-fourths of all the turpentine that
is used thruout the world.
PROBLEMS IN BUTTER
They Are Being Discussed in Series
of Dairy Conventions.
A valuable series of dairy conventions
is being held thru the state by the dairy
and food commission, in union with the
institute. An important one was
held at Hutchinson to-day, attended b5r
representatives of more than twenty
creameries. Governor Van Sant was pres
ent and made an address. Talks on dairy
ing were made by W. W. P. McConnelll.
dairy and food commissioner, A. W.
Trow and B. D. White,' of the department,
O. C. Gregg, of the farmers* Institutes,
Professor T. L, Haecker, of the state
school of agrioulture, and Sam Haugdahl,
of St. Peter. Another convention will be
held in Litchfield to-morrow.
At these conventions the experts discuss
economy in milk production. They urge
the farmers to sell the poor milkers for
beef, and to feed the best milk producing
articles to the herd. Clover and alfalfa
are urged as substitutes for bran in ."sup-
plying protein. Farmers are also urged
to cool and aerate the milR properly, so
as to get the best grade of butter from it.

# City's Population.
Manager John C. F. Ely. of the City Di
rectory company, says that the list of
names of the people of this city will be
ready for distribution Aug. 1. Twenty
five men are now at work revising the ad
dresses and looking up names'incorrectly
noted or missed.
Mr. Ely says there will be a substantial
increase over the total of last.year's di
rectory, which contained 110,001 names.
An unusual feature this year in collect
ing names was the unprecedented number
of changes of addresses, which condition
was due to the great home building move
ment last year. This fact is corroborated
by rental agencies. The summer move
ment to the lakes is also becoming more
pronounced.

HOW CHEAP BAKING POWDER IS
MADE.
A recent seizure of "cheap" baking
powders by the-authorities of a neighbor
ing city has exposed the character of the
low priced brands of baking powders
which many manufacturers are offering
thruout the country. The price of theMany
powders first attracted attention to them.
Samples were taken and analyzed. The
official report of the analysis showed the
stuff to be "alum powders," composed
chiefly of alum, sulphuric acid and pul
verized rock. The powders were declared
dangerous to health and several thousand
pounds were confiscated and destroyed.
Physicians have frequently cautioned
consumers against mixing food with these
so-called "cheap" baking powders. They
are all found, when analyzed, to contain
large percentages .of alum., and sulphuric
acid to which are added various sorts of
filling matter sometimes both injurious
and nasty. :'
. The high,class bream of tartar baking
powders are the 'most economical and
wholesome and should always be selected
for use. They will be found cheaper in
the end, besides rHaking the food better
and more healthful

: School Knew Musicians and
Their Work. .
Sense training seems to be the para
mount object in our later day education,
but only too often that training has no
value aside from the quickening of the
perceptions. It is not impossible, how
ever, to train the senses a'nd at the same
time to gain a knowledge both delightful
and highly educative. A visit in a second
grade room in on* of the schools in the
city proved this conclusively. The work
there was done in the lines of music. The
district is one where the most refining
influences and most enlightening methods
can be employed with the greatest restdts,
for very few of the children have homes
where there is any culture or any attempt
to improve by the world's triumphs in ar
tistic beauty. The design was to give the
children some of the best music and to as
sociate It in their minds with the com
posers themselves while instilling a love
for the best. "Of course," said the princi
pal, "this is only a beginning."
"Rest position," said the teacher to the
little tots who waited curiously to see
What the teacher was going to do for the
visitor. "Now we'll see who can tell me
the names of these faces. Who's this?"
little hands were seen shaking in the
air, some grimy from the recess frolic.
"Who, Mary?"
"That's Haydn," said Mary, twisting her
apron with delight because teacher had
called on her when there was a visitor.
"And this," the teacher went on, not as
much surprised and happy as Mary wished
her to be.
"Beethoven," said John, unable to wait,
until he was called upon.
"Yes," said Miss Jones, looking so hurt
that John slid way down in his seat. "And
now you may tell me who each one is as I
put the picture up. Mendelssohn, Jo -
hannus Brahms, Robert Schumann, Schu
bert, Samuel Francis Smith, Julia Warde
Howe. There the yare, all in a row. ook,
look sharp. Now, heads on desks."
Down went each little head and not one
peeked, that would spoil the game. The
teacher selected two of the pictures and
changed their places. Heads up and every
one looking now. in a minute hands are
waving frantically they know. "Which
ones did I change, Martha?"
"Haydn and Beethoven," pipes a small
voice.
This was repeated several times now
and then some one made a mistake, but it
was not often, the children knew the faces
and who they were. They had gained not
only the power to see accurately, but they
had learned to know some of the greatest
faces that have ever smiled on this earth.
"Who'll tell me," said the teacher, "the
name of this man and sing a song that
he wrote?"
There was a moment of absolute quiet,
then a tiny little barefooted boy, with
permission, walked to the front of the
room. H e took the picture and held It
before him. "Samuel Francis Smith made
this song, ""and his little voice began quav
eringly, "My Country, 'Tis of Thee." Then
the whole school sang it, the little voices
giving new sweetness and beauty to the
song.
Similarly, songs from each one of the
great composers, whose pictures they had,
were introduced and the children sang
with the same apparent enjoyment they
show when the song is a wildly hilarious
bit of musical extravagance. There was a
great difference of opinion as to the favor
ite Brahms had many devotees while oth-.
ers were partial to eBetfibven's "Morning
Hym.n.^.'.J: &fter "thisjexercise, in way of
sense training, a-bar or'two was sung from
one or another of the songs and the chil
dren were asked to tell from what song
it was taken.
This is how one of the exercises of pure
sense training was dignified and ennobled
by bringing into it some of the best the
world has to offer and by bringing it into
.the barest of lives. These children are not
only taught to see and remember, to hear
and to. recognize, but they are given a life
long inspiration and ideal, as well as
knowledge of something valuable, and the
germ of culture.
And the- last words the visitor heard in
chorus as he closed the door were:
How sweet the moonlight sleeps -upon this
bank.
Here will we sit and let the sound of sweet
music - .-. .
Creep In our ears. -
MORE ROOM NEEDED
Northwestern Hospital Directors Decide
to Build an Addition to That
Institution.
The board of directors of the Northwestern
hospital at its last meeting decided to build an
addition to the hospital. The hoard feels forced
bv the crowded condition of the building to take
this action. It Is now necessary to house the
nurses in a rented building, to send out the
bulk of the laundry work at large expense and
even to utilize the back parlor as a private
room. Both the charity and private work is
steadily increasing.
A building committee appointed to consider
the needB and how they could be met, reconu
mended the immediate collection of funds with
which to build a basement and two-story addi
tion at right angles to the present building.
It is the intention that ultimately this wing
Bhill have four stories, but it is thought hat two
doors .would relieve the present congestion and
is as heavy a financial undertaking as
meeting wHl probably be
held in this city at the Swedish tabernacle,
which has always been a favorite abiding place
for the Mission Friends.
President C. A. Bjork, assisted by ten clergy
men, ordained ten theological candidates for the
ministry last evening. The new clergymen are:

Lai dto Rest at Lake-

siu, a small town in the wilds of Nueva Eelja
province, Luzon. He was taken to a hospital,
where-be died the following day.
All former members .of the Army of theMrs.
Philippines are regulated to attend the funeral.
board feels like assuming in addition to its con
stant labors in supporting the hospital. The
portion planned will provide thirty new rooms
and a fully equipped steam laundry. The raising
of the temporary roof when the wing is com
pleted will not be a large additional expense.
The improvements proposed will cost $25,000
and the board is already making an appeal to the
friends of the Institution for help in providing
for the growing demands upon the resources of
the hospital.

this line and she never loses an opportunity to
emphasize this point. Mrs: Griffith will remain
