Ten Miles to Get a Package of Postum.
Borne sufferers won't turn over a hand
to help themselves, but there are others
to- whom health is worth something. A
German woman living In the country
made a ten-mile trip to get a package of
Postum. She was well repaid, for it
brought health and happiness In return.
A translation of the good frau's letter
ays: "From a child I had been used to
drinking coffee daily but the^ longer I
continued drinking it the worse I felt. I
suffered with heart trouble, headaches and.
dizziness. Then I had such an uneasy
feeling around my heart that I often
thought death to be near.
"I gave up drinking coffee and tried hot
water but that did not taste good and I
did not get well. Then I read some let
ters from people who had been helped by
Postum Food Coffee and I determined to
try It."
"I had to go ten miles to get a package,
btit I went. I prepared it carefully ac
cording to directions and we have used it
now In our family for nearly two years,
drinking it twice a day. It agrees* well
with all of us. My heart and bowel
troubles slowly but surely disappeared, it
Is seldom that I ever have a headache,
my nerves are steady and strong again
and I am otherwise strong and well. My
husband has been lately cured of his sick
headaches since we threw coffee out of
our home and have used Postum." Name

with great rapidity, and within ten min
utes from the time the alarm was given
the whole building was in flames and
smoke was belching from under the eaves
in great quantities. The Isolated position
of the building and its commanding size
gave the visitors a full view of the
The building was originally erected by
the Minnesota} Driving club in 1890, and
was used by its members for general club
purposes, especially during its race meet
ings In July. The passage of the anti
pool law had a most discouraging effect
on the class of racing fostered by the
club, and it soon had no use for a club
house. The membership had dwindled to
about twenty. The building, tho it cost
much more, is held to represent an in
vestment of $12,000 I t is insured for
$6,000. None of the exhibits are insured
pxoept the paintings of Knut Okerberg
of St. Paul, which are insured for $725,
which, however, is only a portion of their
Mrs. J. B. Hudson of Lake City, whose
talks on birds and whose collection of
birds' nests have for years been on of
the standard attractions of the building,
lost all her collectiol. including splendid
mounted specimens loaned by Professor
Shepherd. She and Mrs. Anna B. Under
wood, who were rooming at the building,
lost all their personal belongings, even
their walking hats, but accepted their
fate as cheerfully as if fires were daily
occurrences with them.
Mrs N Hubbard of Minneapolis lost
several Navajo blankets and many fine
specimens of Indian pottery. The water
color collection of Miss Elizabeth Chant,
the laces of Miss Jaeger's collection, and
various valuable articles, such as fine
table cloths, cut glass and silver, be
longing to Mrs. W. M Liggett, H. E. W.
Schuette and W. P. Plant of St. An
thony Park, were destroyed. The Swed
ish hospital of Minneapolis and the
Women's Medical club of Minneapolis,
which had equipped the emergency hos
pital, are out about $200 each. It is un
derstood that neither the Minnesota Ag
ricultural society nor the Federation of
Women's Clubs can be held for the losses.
The fire started in the tearoom. Mrs.
J. H. Challon of Minneapolis lit the stove
and a blaze flew up. Apparently the
tank had overflowed. Mrs. Challon ran.
A police officer wanted to beat out the
fire with a Navajo blanket, but was pre
vented by the women. The flames were
soon beyond control.
The firemen had a hard afternoon on
account of the intense heat. Captain
Canterbury of the Minneapolis station
and Math Hoglund were overcome by the
heat. The former was able to go on
duty again, but Hoglund had to be taken
home. Several members of the St. Paul
department succumbed, but were restored
, after a time. ^

Former Inhabitants of the Province
Revive Its Tradition^.
Over 200 people turned out to the
"Valdris Stevne" at Como park yesterday
altho the weather could scarcely have
been more inclement. But Valders pro
duces hardy people, no district in Norway
can show any hardier, and the celebration
was carried out as originally planned
The program consisted of addresses by
members of the "Valdris Sambund" and
songs by the Fram Singing society of St.
Paul, directed by John Dahle.
The principal address was by the Rev.
O. L. Kirkeberg, Urne, Wis., who has re
cently returned from the home valley in
Norway. His talk consisted largely of
personal reminiscences from his journey
and anecdotes of the natives and conse
quently he was listened to with rapt at
tention N. I. Gilbert, a veteran of the
civil war, spoke of "the Valdriser in War
and Peace."
Officers were elected as follows: Presi
dent, Professor A. A. Veblen, University
of Iowa vice president, the Rev. O. L.
Kirkeberg, Urne, Wis. secretary and
treasurer, Dr. J. S. Johnson, St. Paul.
On Saturday evening the "sambund"
held a "Gjesteboe" or party at Dania
hall which was conducted as far as pos
sible according to the old time customs
of Valders. Only the Valdris dialect was
tolerated and the dishes served were typ
ically Norwegian such as "rjaumegraut,"
"lefse," "fla'broe," and various prepara
tions of fish and meat imported from Nor

That the street railway company han
dled the fair traffic last week without an
acident is worthy of note, and that the
regular tiaffic was handled with only two
almost unavoidable accidents, is a tribute
to the excellent management of the week.
The attendance at the grounds240,000
was handled at some time or another over
the street-car lines This means at least
300,000 pulls of the bell cord for this traf
fic alone.
The Como-Harrlet line had record days,
except Sunday, when the strangers in the
city raided the other lines to visit the
interesting points in the two cities. One
of the superintendents said:
"The conductors and motoneers have
had a hard week of it. They went to
work some at 7 and others as 8 in the
morning and did not get into the barns
until about midnight. During this time
they had almost no rest. Of course in the
evening, after the rush had reached the
grounds, we began slowly to take off the
cars we didn't need. In this way the men
managed to get a rest, some longer than
others, of course.
"We ran minute and a quarter service
on the fair-ground lines, which is all the
line would stand. We had no difficulty
in caring for the crowds. Friday was our
worst day. The local lines began pour
ing the people into town all at the same
time, aboiit 1 and 2 o'clock in the after
"At night the people began to swarm
out of the gates about 9:45 and for a time
there were hundreds waiting to get a car.
By 11:45, however, we had everything
cleared up in good shape. Of course there
were some there yet, but the crowd had
been disposed of. The crowd was prac
tically carried off in two hours."
