"BEXALL" MEMBERS MEET
Remarkable Gathering of Stockhold
ers of the United Drug Co. In
Thomas Voegeli, the well-known
druggist, has returned from Boston,
where he has been attending the first
annual meeting of the United Drug
The gathering was remarkable in
The company is a co-operative or
ganization, composed of the leading
druggists in each important town or
city in the country.
A great laboratory has been erected
in Boston and there a remedy for
each human ill is manufactured under
the general trade name of "Kexall."
Important new discoveries in medi
cine are made from time to time, and
after a new preparation is thoroughly
tested and proven it is extensively ad
vertised. Last spring Rexall Dyspep
sia Tablets were introduced by means
of the now famous "Captain Rexall"
and her little soldiers.
This fall a new Rexall remedy,
"Mucu-Tone," a cure for all forms of
catarrh, will be introduced. Mucu
Tone was brought to the attention of
the stockholders at their meeting, and
$65,000 worth of the remedy was or
dered in one afternoon by the drug
gists present. Other orders were given
in the following days, so that the sales
for the week amounted to nearly
Without question of doubt this Is
the most remarkable incident in the
proprietary remedy history of the
country. The men who compose the
United Drug Co. are the acknowledged
leaders in the retail drug business of
the country. That they, should pur
chase this enormous quantity of a
new remedy proves their faith in the
Rexall enterprise and proves, as well,
their wonderful facilities for handling
large quantities of goods.

DEALERS AMONG BIDDERS
Powers' Bug Prices Catch
Interest in the oriental rug sale at
Powers', yesterday, was so great that
the firm has decided to accede to
many requests that have come and
continue the sale during to-morrow.
If proof were needed to convince
the public of the genuineness of the
prices it was supplied the last two days
of the sale, when one of the biggest
dealers in the northwest bought heavi
ly to sell again locally.
"Is Mr. good for that amount?"
was asked at the close of Thursday's

A STRANGER TO PETER
A Park Avenue Pastor Finds Children
Ignorant of Important Bible Facts.
Public school teaching of the Bible was
discussed last night at the Park Avenue
Congregational church prayer meeting.
Rev. George S. Rollins, the pastor, stated
that out of 200 children asked three ques
tions, two of which were: "Who was
Peter?" and "Why did he repent?" only
four gave correct answers.
The pastor believed that much of the
ignorance of the Bible lay in family train
ing. The Bible should be read more in
the homes, and children should be made
to go, to Sunday school.

amusement interests. The editorial and
business manager is James W. Evans -the

tastefully printed ten-page paper. Among
its contents are correspondence from the

of the important towns in the northwest,
all telling succinctly of current theatrical
events. Routes are given of companies
traveling thru the northwest. Extended
reviews describe productions at the twin

The tax rolls show that there are
about 120 automobiles owned in Min
nesota, outside the three cities of Min
neapolis, St. Paul and Duluth.
Exact figures cannot be obtained.
The schedule used by nearly all as
sessors last spring contained a col
umn for "automobiles and other
power vehicles." In a good many lo
calities motor cycles or other ve
hicles seem to have been included in
the list, Judging by the values placed
on this class. Por instance, Winona
county returned 144, valued at $3,151,
an average of $21.87. The probabil
ities are that this number includes six
to a dozen autos. Clearwater coun
ty returns seven, with a total valua
tion of $471. Polk county reports 25,
and the total value is $563. Rice
county's 28 are valued at $1,530. Just
how many of these are autos and how
many motor cycles or bicycles, the
records do not show.
The following counties return au
tos at something like a fair valuation,
indicating that they are the "real

with the motor cycles or whatever
else happened to go in that column.
It is safe to say that 120 autos were
found for taxation outside the twin
cities. This was under date of May

The Roosevelt Club Secures a Clever
Piece for Its Next .
The glad news was passed around
at the first meeting of the Roosevelt
Marching club last night that the play
committee had transacted the most
serious business of the season by se
lecting the play to be staged next
spring. "Baron Humbug," by. R. A.
Barnet, will be the vehicle used by the
young "ladies" and gentlemen of the
club to amuse an admiring public
The quality of the piece-is guaran
teed by its authorship, as Mr. Barnet
has gained an enviable reputation
thru the other things he has written
for the Roosevelt club, the Bankers'
association and the Cadet's club of
Boston. In the present instance Mr.
Barnet gave the Roosevelt club the
right to use it one day, and received
a flattering offer for it from a profes
sional producer the next.
"Baron Humbug" has a cast of
eighty, including a large number of
chorus "girls," such as have made
a strenuous hit in seasons gone by.
The scene of the play, or comic
opera, is in Hungary and excellent
opportunity is therefore given for the
introduction of characteristic Hun
garian music and costumes.
One date, March 19, has already
been booked in Duluth, and it is prob
able that Winona, St. Cloud, Mankato
or St. Paul will also be visited before
the friends at home have an oppor
tunity to see the production.
