City and Chicago, ending with the
rational horse show in New York.
Heretofore Minneapolis and St. Paul
have held separate horse shows, and
the result has not been altogether
gratifying, creditable as they have
been in some respects. The co-opera
tion of the horse lovers of the two
cities, however, means an event double
in importance, number of entiies and
patronage. Plans have accordingly
been made upon an elaborate scale.
The largest tent ever used for horse
show purposes, 350x150 feet in size,
Will be used, which will give an arena
larger than is afforded by the Coli
seum at Chicago or Madison Square
Garden at New York. A seating ca
pacity for 3,000 people will be pro
vided with a row of boxes flanking a
promenade eight feet wide for its en
The tent will be located just inside
of the state fair grounds and will be
connected with the platform at the
terminal of the street car lines by a
canopied entrance. Several thousand
incandescent lights will be used. The
state fair stock barns will be utilized
for the care of equipages and auto
mobiles. Thus even bad weather can
not threaten the success of the show.
Prizes amounting" to $8,000 are of
fered which cover fifty classes and
they are to be awarded by judges
from abroad who are acknowledged
experts. A majority of the horse
show exhibitors can be depended upon
to come here and the twin cities will
be given an opportunity to see many
of the blue-ribboned champions, in
cluding hunters, jumpers, as well as
saddle horses and harness horses. Sev

Publishers of books of fiction report

Augsburg Seminary is the first di
vinity school built Norwegian
Americans. It was founded in I860,
and three years later a site had been
bought and a thiee-story school
building erected for the seminary in
Minneapolis, Minn, During the next
two years Sven Ofledal, Georg Sver
drup and S. Ii. Gundersen were called
from Norway as professors of the
The student attendance improved
from year to year and the needs of
the student body increased. As a
consequence the seminary soon had
grown into three distinct departments
preparatoiy, college and theological.
The two fust departments were
planned to prepare for the theological
It has made no effort to compete
with or occupy the field of state
schools, but has subordinated its
whole curriculum to the particular
needs of its students and its purpose
as a divinity school training men for
Upon the merging of the Norwe
gian Lutheran conference in 1890 with
other church bodies to form the
United church, Augsburg was made
the theological seminary of that
church. Not all the new supporters,
however, were in perfect harmony
with its established methods. A con
troversy followed which resulted in
the formation of the Lutheran Free
hurch as the defender and continued
supporter of the Augsburg idea. By
an amicable settlement in 1898 the
United church kept the endowment
fund of the seminary, while the Flee
church retained the seminary proper.
Augsburg is today the recognized
educational institution of the Luther
an Frpe church, by -vho it is sup
ported. These supporters, in 1901,
erected a new $45,000 college build
ing and last year raised an additional
$30,000 to wipe out an indebtedness
incurred for further improvements.
Since its organization Augsburg
seminary has graduated 158 from the
college department ind 304 fiom the
theological department. During the
same time it has been attended by
thousands of students from all parts
of the west and has drawn around
itself a number of affiliated institu
Since 1875 Professor George Sver
drup has served as president of the
school and Professor Sven Oftedal as
president of the board of trustees.
MINNESOTA SCHOOL OF
Thousands of Its Graduates Occupy
ing Remunerative Positions.
The most distinctive feature of the
Minnesota School of Business is its
teachers. This has been called the
clay of specialists. Its teachers are
specialists with regard to their chosen
profession of teaching, and specialists
in their respective lines of work.
The proprietors, Messrs. Rickard
and Gruman, have been actively en
gaged in teaching for twenty-six
years, and de\ote their whole time
and attention to the work of the
school. Each instructor is an expert
his own department. In addition
to this, it is demanded of each that he
have the special faculty of imparting
his own knowledge to others.
For more than a quarter of a cen
tury the Minnesota School of Business
has been training young men and
women for business life, and its thou
sands of graduates are now occupying
positions of honor and profit all over
the country. The experimental stage
of the school has long ago been
passed, and the institution has for
many years been established in the
confidence df the business public.
The world has never known such
a demand as there is at present for
competent young men and women to
fill good business positions. During
the past year the positions offered
have been so numerous that many
times the school was unable to fill
them. Its chief difficulty at present
is, not to find positions, but to find
enough capable young people to fill
the positions offered.
WORKING FOR IRRIGATION
A. W. HADLEY SEEKS TO AROUSE
INTEREST HERE IN NATIONAL
CONGRESS. A. W. Hadley, northwestern repre
sentative of the National Irrigation
association, is in the city for a few
days seeking to arouse interest in the
National Irrigation congress, to be
held at El Paso, Texas, Nov. 15-18.
This important body is made up of
state representatives from all parts
of the country who assemble at dif
ferent points in the west for the dis
cussion of the various topics con
nected with the development of arid
regions by the federal government.
In speaking to The Journal,
Mr. Hadley said:
"The advocates of government irri
gation should be particularly active
between now and November in an
ticipation of the coming irrigation
congress., The resolutions adopted by
the "convention cairy consider ible
weight with the various congressional
committees at Washington, thus mak
ing the objects of the meeting two
fold in character not only that of
formulating new ideas regarding
western development, but also the
presenting of these ideas to the peo
ple at large, and to the government.
"The climatic conditions at El
Paso are at their best in November,
and the citizens there are making
elaborate preparations for the enter
tainment of their guests.

needed in the northwest.
Several new names will be added to
the strong musical faculty of the Con

one to attend. The new and enlarged

RIDES THE DEATH TRAP
Daring Oscar Babcock to Be a Stat Fair
The one big star feature of the Minne
sota state fair this year will be the "Great
Babcock" in what is conceded to be the
acme of all hazardous, thrilling, death
defying bicycle riding exploits. Refer
ence is made to Babcock's wonderful
achievement of looping the death-trap
loop and in making his exit from the loop
flying the flume. A good deal has been*
written regarding the death-trap loop. It
is a marvel in itself, and will thrill every
one who sees it The daring rider, Oscar
Babcock, rides down a staging that Js
neai the shape of the letter "J" He
comes down the stem and passes just un
der the curl of the upper part. He has
gained such headway that he is shot foi
ward and upward, and as he passes a
point twenty e4i fi om the
Wheel automatically loosens a spring and
the track he rides' drops suddenly. A
section of the arc drops, like a teeter, that
part of the track he rode over as he en
tered the curl rises- and completes the
track, so that when he makes the over
head loop there, is a track on which he
can complete his circuit. It closes just in
the instant of the time needed to save
him from being hurled to the earth and
dashed to death. And the teetering sec
tion that gives him a completed cirple
fall's at the faither side as it rises at the
nearer, so that he has a doorway thVu
which he darts at the speed' of a bullet
shot from a rifle to the level ground.
