Travelers have noted that in the Bis marck archipelago cats without tails are very numerous. Th e explanation as given is curious. Th e natives of the islands have a superstitious belief that remnants of food falling Into the hands of an enemy en able him to cast a spell over the eaters of the meal at which the remnants were left. Now, the natives value their cats less as pets than as a convenient source rf fresh meat. It follows that thefts of cats are frequent, or rather were fre quent until some genius evolved the happy scheme of cutting off their tails and stor ing them aw ay in a safe place. "For," said he, "if a thief should steal my cat and eat it, an incantation muttered over Its residue will make the miscreant so sick that he will be sorry he ever tasted stolen cat's flesh." I t was an idea worthy of the great chancellor himself, and the* humble brown Blsmarckian, in pursuing the blood-and-lron policy it entailed, wa, like him, serenely indifferent to bloodshed, pain and caterwaullngs so long as he se cured his ends or his cats' ends.

The very choicest of every compon ent part of the Blatz brews is the invariable rule. Expert judges of barley and hops are en gaged in contracting months in advance of the demands, and only the best of Mother Earth's crop is ever considered. General C. C. Andrews, chief forest Are warden, gives the following interview on his recent visit to the Rainy River coun try: "In passing, last week, fifty miles thru a timber country on the line of the Can adian Northern railway from Beaudette to Warroad, 1 was impressed by the care taken by that company in preventing forest fires. Th e road has been in oper ation a year but I saw scarcely any trace of recent fire along the line. This was the first time I had visited just that por tion of the state. Fo r the greater part of the distance the land is suited to agri culture. I would except from the agricul tural areas a few tracts that are exclu sively in jack pine. I t is generally level. The prevailing timber is poplar. There, are bodies of good spruce also of cedar and tamarack alternating with some in viting .hardwood tracts. There is also some good pine, the manufacture of which at one place at least along the line of road has begun. This timber ought to have an increased value when the great water power at Koochichingnow called International Falls is developed. The agricultural character of the land and the ciuality and quantity of the tim ber along the line of this railway on the Ontario side are equally as good. "The railroad is developing an import ant part of northern Minnesota. The scenery of the Rainy River, the islands and shores of which are prettily wooded, is decidedly beautiful especially at this season of the year." rX,XX -^J GOAT LYMPH TABLOIDS V Ipmmmjrrmoi The greatest Curative Agent ever discovered.

TAILLESS CATS The closing week of- the annual exhi bition of paintings by American artists being held in the public library gallery under the auspices of the Minneapolis So ciety of Fine Arts will open with an eve ning of noteworthy attractiveness Mon day. A fine musical program by leading artists will be given, and Robert Koehler, director of the art school and president of the Minnesota State Art society, will give a lecture on James McNeil Whistler and his art, with special reference to the pic tures on exhibition. Mr. Koehler enjoyed th*e personal acquaintance of Mr. Whistler and will be able to give a very interesting address on the subject. A strong desire has been expressed by many to keep in the permanent collection the splendid example of the work of Doug las Volk, first director of the art school and a man who had a deep influence in awakening the art impulses of the city Nothing better has been created by his brush, and it is felt that It will be easier to secure i subscriptions for this picture than any other. There has always been a desire to have a fine Volk canvas for the public gallery, and Mr. Volk certainly could not be bett er represented th an by "The Boy With the Arrow," which se cured the principal prize of the Society of American Art, the Carnegie prize. One private sale has been reported that of Mrs. Georgia T. Fry 's "Return of the Flock," to Mrs. H . P .

'Employes. '. , / A Circular Issued by Federation Committee Makes an Exhaust ive Statement. There was sent out last night by the federation council, which is the executive committee of the State Federation of Labor, a circular letter, addressed to the union men of the state, which bears upon the present mill employes' strike and is emphatic in its criticism of the mill mana gers. The letter Is the committee's formal ap peal for financial aid-for the strikers and recites a some length the history of the troubles [between the flour loaders and millers -which culminated in the strike de clared a week ago. Minneapolis, Minn'., Sept. 30, 1903.To Organ ized Labor of the State of MinnesotaGreeting: The federation council having made a thoro and impartial''.investigation of the differences be tween the flour mill employes and the Minneapo lis mill owners, find the following to be a* fair and impartial statement of the facts: Unftl June, 1003, the relations between the firms tand the unions h.ad been most pleasant. When committee from the unions called on the managers they met with a civil reception. If the managers could not grant their request, they would explain the reason which prompted their refusal. When the flour loaders decided to request an eight-hour workday, they expected that the firms would be willing to meet with their committee and discuss the situation. They felt that their request was a most reasonable one. AH th other mill employes were working but elgnt hours per day. Why should they, the hardest worked men in the mills, be asked to work ten hours ? When the committee did call on the firms, however, they found that the attitude of the mill owners had wonderfully changed. In answer to their request they received a flat and positive "no." No reason was advanced for the refusal. Later a second committee was appointed in hopes that the managers might be found in a more reasonable frame of mind. This commit tee met with the same reception. The matter was then dropped for a month in order to give the firms time to reconsider their position. Again a committee called upon them, only to be met with a flat refusal and a notice that another visit would not be welcomed by the managers. The milling firms had Joined the National Manu facturers' association and the influence of Par ryism was becoming apparent. The flour loaders, feeling that they could not bring about a peaceable settlement of, the con troversy, turned their case over to their inter national union. The international executive board interviewed the firms, and they received the same treatment accorded the flour loaders. Before the strike was ordered an offer was made to the firms to arbitrate the case, men to remain at work pending the decision of the board. This offer'was met with the stereotyped reply, "nothing to arbitrate." One of the man agers stated that he would shut his plants down indefinitely before he would enter into a discus sion of tfie wage scale paid his employes. When the strike was finally ordered, prac tically every man in the mills obeyed the call and 1.800 iren quit work. The mills were left in a clean condition and firemen and watchmen were left to guard the property. The day following the unions addressed a pub lic letter to the mayor of Minneapolis asking him to name a committee.of representative business men to arbitrate the issue. The mayor did every thing he could to induce the mill owners to ac cept the proposition. His appeals were ignored, and the managers even refused to meet him to discuss the situation. The strikers have maintained a strict picket line about the mills. The best of order has been maintained. Not one case of disorderly con duct has been reported. The three locals concerned are affiliated with the International Union of Flour and Cereal Mill Employes. The international was organized by the Minneapolis locals on Sept. 22, 1002. It has been very successful in tb:e abort time It has existed. Seventy-five locals are now affiliated. The fact that the Minneapolis locals have spent large sums In organizing the rest of the country is the chief reason for their present lack of funds. Thru tho public press the mill owners have stated that there was an understanding with the unions that no further Increase for any class of employes was to be asked for until mill em ployes In all other parts of the country secured the eight hour day. This is not true. The unions did promise, however, to use their best en deavors to organize their fellow workmen, and they have well kept their promise. The additional cost which the request of the flour loaders would entail on the Arms is very small. In several of the mills it would not be necessary to add a single man. Men experienced in the loading of flour agree that $100 per day is a very liberal estimate for the additional cost to the three milling firms combined. In their efforts to break the strike they have already spent many times what the increased cost of the eight hour day would amount to in the next year. The firms have unlimited money and they are spending it with a lavish hand. Men have been brought in from all sections of the country. Bums, hobos, Greeks, negroes and university Btudents are being used to break the strike. The firms claimed that they could not afford to .pay the flour loaders $2 for eight hours, yet they are now paying university students $2.25 per day for six hours. * All that the men asked was an opportunity to prove the Justice and fairness of their position before an impartial tribunal. The mill owners were afraid to give the unions a chance to prove their case. We believe that this is a contest which must enlist the sympathies of every member of or ganized labor in the state of Minnesota, and that we must realize that it is not merely a con test between tho mill owners of Minneapolis and their eroploj es, but is a deliberate attempt upon the part of the mill owners, backed up by the National Manufacturers', association, to disrupt the labor movement of this state. The council feels that the very fact that the employers re fused absolutely to meet their employes in their many efforts to bring about a peaceable solution of this trouble Indicates that they did not de sire a peaceable settlement, but rather they wero determined to force the issue and stamp unionism out of their mills for all time to come. We feel confident that should they be successful in their efforts that we mav reason ably expect that this will not be the end, but that other unions in nthis state may look for an attack of this nature, and we feel confident that every member of organized labor in the state will realize the necessity of making the con test of the flour mill employes their contest, and put forth every effort to assist in bringing about a victory for the flonr mill employe. We feel confident that the flour mill employes occupy a very strong position, having conducted their contest in a manner which cannot help but command the sympathy of the public. And we believe that with the trcial and financial assist ance of the uniofe men of the state an early vic tory is in night. When we realize, however, that the mill owners have control of unlimited finances and that they have the backing of the National Manufacturers' association, we must also realize that it will be necessary, to raise a large fund to win- this contest, and realizing that every member of organized labor in the state is equally interested in winning this contest, we have no hesita'hey in making an urgent appeal to them for financial assistance. We would re quest that each organization contribute liber ally toward this fund, and that in addition to such contributions It is recommended that every member be requested to donate that day's pay towards winning this contest. We feel confident that you will realize the necessity of twinning this struggle and that we will have a hearty response to this call for financial assistance.

HISS ISAACSON GOES TO CHI- CAGO .Superintendent of Swedish Hospital ' signs to Take Charge of a Chicago Institution. Miss Id a Isaacson has been appointed superintendent of the training school for nurses in the Swedish Covenant hospital and Ho me of Mercy in Chicago. Miss Isaacson has been superintendent of the Swedish hospital since 1899, and it was .under her direction that the training school for nurses .was opened there. Miss Ethel Porter, a sister of the matron, has been appointed to fill the vacancy and will enter on her duties at once, as Miss Isaacson will leave to-morrow. Miss Porter is from Clay Center, Minn., and was a teacher in Gustavns Adolphus col lege for three years before she entered ,the hospital from which she was gradu ated last spring. - :' ceipts. .' ..._-.- Liberal offerings of wheat forced prices oft this morning, and in the Minneapolis pit the December option was down to 75%c after half an hour of trading. May wheat was a little ^firmer than Decem ber, and while Jhe jnearer option lost %@%c, Ma y lost only %c to 76%c. Trade was light, which' was pn, reason for the decline.' ' Rains over the west and northwest had little effect on sentiment, for ,while the country was wet down again over a wide area the precipitation,was in no locality heavy enough to cause much fear of inter ference with the movement of grains to market. Fren ch crop estimates were cabled across again. Th e millers association of France says that country has raised 400,- 000,000 bushels of wheat. Last year the French millers estimated the yield at 372,- 000,000. . Meanwhile the French farmers' association came out with a report pla cing the yield on this crop at 348,000,000. This difference of 52,000,000 bushels be - tween the two totals shows that the ex perts abroad disagree almost as widely as do the experts at home. Murray of the "Price Current says the Ohio valley is too dry for fall work but otherwise everything is favorable. Minneapolis received 326 cars .against 440 Duluth, 323 against 527, and Chicago 47 against 179, or a total for the three markets of 696 against 1,146 last year. This is a very bullish showing and in itself should mean firmness in prices, but it is offset by. the fact that the Min neapolis millers are still buying wlfeat sparingly, and in consequence almost 1,000,000 bushels have gone into local elevators this week, with the visible sup ply swelled accordingly. , This afternoon the women's auxiliary of .the Concordia society gave- an informal reception for Miss Isaacson in the nurses' home and presented her with a handsome gift.
