Waltei Jones and Miss Beatrice Champlin,

It was the intention to keep the wedding
secret at least for that da but some

and from the time the curtain went up
at the Bijou that evening where Mr
Jones was playing in The Night of the
Fourth there was trouble
The newly married comedian waltzed
onto the stage In the first act, pluming
himself on his cleverness in fooling his

along his spinal column, his face flushed
for a moment he glanced at a bunch of
grinning conspirators in the audience,
scowled hesitated, then proceeded with
the performance
There was a roar from the audience,

for a speech Mr Jones stoutly refused,
but after the performance Mr and Mrs.

REASONS WHY MY MOTHER SHOULD USE A BUCK'S STEEL RANGE:
I. It Is the most durable.
Heavy one-piece bodies protected where heat is most intense with asbestos
board, and extra heavy ovens in all grades insure every Buck's Range be-
ing thoroughly durable.
II. It Is the most eoonomical In operation.
Heavy asbestos board prevents outward radiation where heat is not needed,
and in consequence no neat is wasted.
III. Its superior ovens.
One weight, and that the heaviest, is used in all grades. The buckle-proof
bottom does away with the necessity for using bolts and rivets in oven bot-
toms, always insuring a smooth bottom.
IV. The quickest bakers.
The ovens are sufficiently heavy that asbestos protection is not necessary
on top, which prevents quick results in ovens in general. White enamel,
the best known non-conductor of heat used for this purpose, is used for
lining oven doors, retaining much heat in the oven that is usually absorbed
by the door and radiated outward.
V. The Moderate Prioe. '
Their being but one grade, so far as weight and quality of ovens and bodies
is concerned, a medium or low priced Buck's is always the equal of the
highest grade of any other line made.

Poisoning.
Miss Hilda Williams aged 20 was found
dead in her bed at 2201 Washington ave
nue N early this morning An empty
three-ounce bottle which had contained
cough syrup, was found by her bedside
Death, the coioner says, resulted from
narcotic poisoning
Miss Williams had been suffering from
a severe cough and bought a bottle of
the medicine last night Early this morn
ing her cousin's wife, with whom she
roomed, found the girl dead Deputy
Coroner Irvine after a careful examina
tion decided that death was due to nar
cotic poisoning, the effect of the cough
medicine ,
It is thought Miss Williams found that
the medicine did not give her relief when
taken according to directions and that
she sipped it until the bottle was empty
The regular dose for adults is one-eighth
of an ounce or one teaspoonful, every
three hours Miss Williams should have
taken according to directions about
thi ee eighths of an ounce in the time that
elapsed befoie she was found but instead
she took three full ounces
Dr Irvine is puzzled to know why the
svrup should have caused death There
are only about twelve drops of chloro
form in three ounces of the preparation
and the other drugs are not thought to
have been used In sufficient quantities to
cause fatal results An autopsy will be
held
Miss Williams' parents live at Taylors
Falls but she had been a waitress in
Minneapolis two years
Mayor James C Haynes attended a
mass meeting at the East high school
last evening and expressed himself as
being convinced that the residents of
the East Side wished the Main street
dives closed. He said that it was im
possible to gm. rid of dives entirely, but
they could be put where they would not
be so prominent He was unwilling to
use his arbitrary power for such a pur
pose until assured that public sentiment
would support him
Mr Haynes announced himself as eai
nestly in favor of the park proposition
and suggested that the block between the
International Auditorium, the East high
school and the Pillsbury library be se
cured first The park board had veiy
little money with which to purchase land,
but nevertheless the work of improve
ment must begin at once He suggested
also that a definite understanding be se
cured with M W Savage so that there
would be a guaranty that the park pro
posed by him would be permanent
Dr Cyrus Northrop of the state uni
S-erslty presided and made a few remarks
advocating the measures in which that
section of the olty is so greatly inter
ested A stirring speech was made by
the Rev G L Morrill He stated his
belief that the proposed improvements
would not only be a good advertisement
for the city, as it would beautify a prom
inent section which is now most unsight
ly but would enhance the value of the
surrounding real estate
The meeting adopted resolutions urg
ing the administration to close the houses
of ill fame on Main street and recom
mending that the block between the Fills
bury library, the high school and the
auditorium be secured for park purposes
At the close of the evening the Rev
Mr Morrill sold Banda Rossa tickets by
the wholesale, disposing of over 3,000 Up
to last evening over 11,500 tickets had
been sold
The meeting was well attended there
being several hundred leading citizens
present to testify to their approval of the
proposed park and the crusade against
the dives

Morning.
President Northrop Gives Whole
some Advice to Students
New and Old.
This was opening day at the university,
and the campus presented an animated
appeal ance as three thousand students
went to and from their classes The work
was principally confined to registration
and assignment of work, no recitations
being held
The chief event was President North
rop's address in chapel, in which he wel
comed all and gave the new and old stu
dents wholesome wopds of advice Chapel
was crowded with the new students anx
ious for the first glimpse of their presi
dent, who chose for his subject ' Life
for us all is what we make it ' He spoke
of the environments of the university,
which were so conducive to the forma
tion of character and which played such
a prominent part In the students' every
day life He admonished the fieshmen
to start right by attending strictly to
their duties as students not allowing any
outside pleasures to interfere with such
work The usual admonition to refrain
from class organization was^glven to the
freshmen and they were cautioned
against using the university buildings for
class rushes and contests
President Northrop deplored the lack of
suitable accommodations around the uni
versity for the young ladies, and hoped
that before another year a dormitory of
some kind might be built
The registration so far has reached
2 175 and still the rush continues There
was a long line in front of the registrar's
office at noon

is worth about $1 00(f It was issued by
the postmaster of Millbury, Mass, who
could not wait until the government got
around to issuing postage stamps, which
was not until 1847 The specimen owned
by the New England Stamp company is
what collectors call a perfect copy
The six stamps together represent a

visionals which are in the same class as
the Millbury Among the other United
States provisionals in the collection, but
which could not be satisfactorily repro
duced, are a rare New York carrier stamp
a Brattleboro and a 5-cent St Louis on
pelure paper The latter is held at about
$1,600 Rarer even than this, however,
is a Livingstone provisional, the scarcest
of all the Confederate local stamps issued
during the civil war by the postmasters
of many southern cities This is held at
$2 000 It is shown on the original en

creases its value
Of the regular issues of the United
States there are three of the 1869 date,
with inverted centers The 15, 24 and 30-
cent denominations of this issue were
printed like the late Pan-American stamps,
in two colors, the center being a medallion
illustrating some historical scene In run-j
ning the sheets thru the press the second
time, some were turned wrong end fore
most, causing the center to be inverted
and giving the stamp a topsy-turvy ap

is unused and there is only one other
of its kind in existence Two other rare
stamps are the 5 and 30-cent denomina

No stamps of equal value have even
been shown in this city before, and the

How Minneapolis Can Keep Harriet
and Calhoun at Any Height *
Desired.
City Can Also Double Volume of
Water at 'Haha FallsEx-
pense Slight.
At an expense of a few thousand dol
lars Hennepin county can drain 1,000
acres of swamp land, regulate the water
level of Cedar Lake, Lake of the Isles,
Lakes Calhoun and Harriet to any height
desired, double the amount of water pass
ing over Minnehaha Falls and do away
with an expensive sewer for the drainage
of Bassett's creek thru North Minneap
olis
F M Henry, a local civil engineer,
has discovered all these possibilities and
makes the suggestion, amply backed b\
topographical data to show that it is
practicable, tho no survey for the ex
press purpose has been made
Mr Henry would accomplish the re
sults stated by means of a drainage ditch
diverting Bassett's creek at Golden Val
ley and carrying it, as shown in the ac
companying map, a distance of three and
a half miles to Cedar lake According
to the United States topographical sur
vey, which is recent and the most ac
curate information possible to obtain, Bas
sett's creek at the point indicated is
about thirty-six feet higher than the level
of Cedar lake This would give a fail
of ten feet to the mile, which would carry
the waters of the creek easily and with
out the necessity of a very large ditch
The total cost of this ditch, Mr Henry
estimates, would not be more than $6,000
or $7,000
A short ditch would connect Cedar lake
with Lake of the Isles, and by its means
the height of Cedar lake could be abso
lutely regulated the surplus going into
Lake of the Isles In like manner, after
bringing Lake of the Isles up to the proper
level, it could be drained by the aid of
a short ditch into Lake Calhoun By
raising the level of Calhoun, it would be
made to discharge into Lake Harriet
again by the surface channel and this
could be dammed so as to regulate the
height of Calhoun
Good Thing for 'Haha.
Eventually the surplus water would find
its way into Minnehaha creek and as
Bassett's creek carries to-day practically
as muoh water as Minnehaha it would
result in doubling the flow over Minne
haha Falls and greatly increasing its
beauty
The total cost of all the work, Mr
Henry says would not exceed $12,000
The practical nature of this improve
ment becomes more apparent as the prop
osition is studied It is of great impor
tance to Minneapolis that the four lakes
in the proposed chain be preserved None
of them are now fed by streams of any
size, and lakes depending on springs or
small surface streams have been drying
up In Minnesota for a number of years
It is shown by actual measurement that
all of these four lakes are becoming lower
each year Ramsey county is now pre
serving the level of White Bear lake, and
St Paul of Como lake, by pumping watei
in This is a very expensive and unre
liable way of filling the lakes but Minne
apolis will be compelled to follow suit in
a very short time unless some surface
supply is found for them Mr Henry's
suggestion would give them an ample
feed Bassett's creek drains Medicine
lake, a body of water three miles long
and draining a basin of twenty-two or
twenty-three square miles This gives
a steady flow of water, and the creek is
oidlnarily the same size as Minnehaha,
flowing all the year around
Bassett s creek is now a burden to Min
neapolis instead of a blessing It trav
erses the third ward for a distance of
three miles and for all that distance It
is now carried by a wooden frame sewer
This is growing old, and in the near fu
ture, if the stream continues its present
course, the sewer must be enclosed in
an immense brick work large enough to
permit it to carry off the spring floods
This would cost hundreds of thousands
of dollars By diverting the creek at
Golden Valley only a little surface rain
water would have to be carried thru this
sewer and it would be nearly dry a part
of the year It would not only save th*s
city money, but would be a benefit to
property along the stream There might
be some claims for compensation from
Golden Valley farmers along the stream
and below the point where it is proposed
to divert it, but if there was any dam
age to them it would be more than com
pensated by the benefits to city prop
erty and to lands along the line of the
proposed ditch
Big Swamp Drained.
West of the city limits and along the
line of Superior avenue is a big swamp,
under water most of the time, and the
proposed ditch would drain directly thru
it, carrying off the standing water and
making about 1,000 acres of the swamp
fertile farm land This incidental benefit
would go a long way toward paying the
cost of the ditch
Mr Henry is of the opinion that any
one of the three principal benefits, taken
alone, would amply Justify the work The
ditches could be put in for a small part
of the cost of the three and a half miles
of sewer for Bassett's creek, and once
built, they could be maintained at small
cost on account of the rapid fall in the
long stretch from Golden Valley to Cedar
lake

cents there are the important questions
