Admissions that large amounts of
rude copper had changed hands within
wo days at below lb cents a pound,
epresenting resales of metal which had
oeen bought for the Chinese account,
presumably for Japan1,
made it clear
that a considerable decline in that
^etal could not be avoided, as the .bel
gerents may want to work off some of
ueir accumulated stocks, which have
ot yet been shipped. There are also
irge stocks of copper carried by specu
tors who have eounted on a further

rofits. The street also suspected cer
in companies of trying to cornier

With the hunting season fairly
sned and the prospect of much game
ming in during the next two months,
neapolis sportsmen are preparing to
i their own against the state game
i fish commission and its represen

i best. Sportsmen, while thoroly in

servation work of the commission,
not like its methods, and are par
'nlarly opposed to some of the rep
sentatives who are intrusted with the
-cal business of the commission,
barges of overofficiousness are freely

ent is also mentioned as a woeful
ortcoming of wardens.
There will be a legal fight this year
'er the new storage law passed by
last legislature. The law appar
itly prohibits the holding of game af
r the close of the season in cold
orage. Executive Agent Samuel Ful
rton, however, haa made a ruling that
to exceed forty-five partridges and
ty ducks may be kept in any one
ild-storage plant on the proper tags
oeured fTom the commission. Here
fore sportsmen have been allowed to
ore their game on
and use it
winter and early as de

rds in one house is little if any relief,
view of the fact that each cold

0 to 300 patrons every season among
sportsmen. It practically shuts

Beveille will be at 6 a.m., breakfast
at 6:20, sick call at 6:45, battalion
drill from 6:50 to 8:30.
There will be a morning battalion
parade on Monday and Friday at 8:30,

Andrus, commanding the cavalry. The
field artillery battalion will be absent
on practice march and target practice
thru the month of September.
The calisthenic drill is to be of a
very varied nature, including not only
exercises laid down in Butts' manual
and Koehler's manual and in the drill
book, but also general athletics, such
as running, jumping, wall scaling, etc.
There is an excellent gymnasium at the
fort, thanks to the efforts of the W.
C. T. U., in connection with the tem
perance canteen, or "post exchange,"
as it is called officially, so that bad
weather will not interfere with the
athletic training for which Fort Snell
ing is becoming famous.
In compliance with the war depart
ment regulations requiring all troops in
garrison to make a practice march of
150 miles each summer, the seventh
battalion field artillery, Major S. E.
Allen commanding, left Fort Snelling
this morning for Sparta, Wis., for its
annual target practice.
On the march the troops will be in
structed in field maneuvering and map
making. Last year's target practice
was held on the Lake City range.

Subway "Taverns a Failure and
j. Likely to Pass to Other
New York Sun Special Servioe.
New York, Sept. 1.A feverish air
of distrust, anxiety and unrest pervades
the Subway Tavern, the drinking place
created by Bishop Pottor and other emi
nent men to reform the saloon evil in
New York.
It was rumored that the tavern had
sunk into the depths of failure, and
that it would pass into the hands of a
man who will conduct i^ on the straight
lines of a common saloon.
Patrons before the bar expressed
sympathy for the bishop. They re
called how a trifle more than a year
ago the place opened with prayer and
how the bishop spoke then hopefully of P,rwle
his pet scheme.
These thoughts, however, did not dis
turb W. A. Skidmore, who expects to
close the purchase of the place.
Skidmore has his own ideas about
drinking resorts. They run opposite
to Bishop Potter's. He said:
In' a business of this kind you can't
follow the Lord and chase the devil at
the same time."
Somebody asked the bartender where
the excise license was,
I 'don't know," he said. "I've
been looking for it ever since I've been
"Bishop Potter would never run a
saloon without a license," indignantly
answered another patron.
Mr. Skidmore had nothing to say on
that question.

Longest Tapeworm on Record
Brought to Cooper
The largest parasite of which there is
any record in' medical annals was
brought to Voegeli Brothers Thursday
by a well-known business man of Eau
Claire, Wis. The creature measured
almost one hundred feet in length and it
was brought to Mr. Cooper late Thurs
day afternoon.
The gentleman who had taken some
of the now celebrated New Discovery
medicine for stomach trouble stated that
the parasite had not greatly affected his
health, and the only indications he had
of its presence was a general feeling
of lassitude.
How such a thing could remain in the
system of a human being for over a
year's time without completely break
ing down the health of the individual
so affected is hard to understand.
Never before in the history of this
city has any one man aroused the same
amount of interest as Mr. Cooper and
his preparations are now being sold in
Minneapolis in such enormous quanti
ties as to justify those connected with
the sale in thinking that one-half of the
population of the city will be taking
the preparation before he leaves.
Among those who called to thank Mr.
Cooper on Friday morning for what his
preparations have done was Mrs. M. A.
Phelps living at 2217 Elliot avenue.
She said:
I had suffered for a year or more
with stomach trouble, was greatly
troubled with sour stomach and had
very severe bilious attacks, I felt tired
all over had a bad taste in my mouth,
and had dizzy headaches every few
weeks. I also had heartburn a great
deal, and was generally run down.
I have taken one bottle of the New
Discovery and it has done wonders for
me. My stomach trouble has entirely
disappeared and I am as well as I have
ever been in my life. I would not have
believed any medicine on earth could do
for me what this has done."
The new mail order department just
organized by Voegeli Brothers to dis
tribute the Cooper remedies thruout
the state has been snowed under by or
ders and the entire working force has
been doubled to keep np with the de
mand. The preparations are sent in
$3 lots, to any part of the state by
this department upon receipt of the
price, and yesterday orders were re
ceived irom" practically every town in
the state of Minnesota.
Mr. Cooper will remain at Voegh
Brothers until 10 o'clock Saturday
night in order to meet those people Who
have been unable to see him during
the day for the past week.

Great Eastern Express Dashes
Into Platform of Station
at Witham.
Witham, Eng., Sept.. 1.A terrible
railway aceident occurred here thi
morning. Ten persons were killed and
many were seriously injured.
The express from London to Cromer
dashed into the platform of the Witham
station of the Great Eastern railway.
The train was running at full speed,
Witham not being a stopping plaee for
the express. The cars went right
across the platform, demolishing the
buildings. There was only one passen
ger in the first car and, strangely, he
escaped injury.
Among those killed was the porter of
the station, who was sitting in his room
on the platform. Six of the dead are
women. Two ticket sellers were buried
in the wreck, but escaped serious in
jury. The cars caught fire and con
sumed the wreckage. All the bodies
were removed before the flames gained
It was the rear cars that left the
track, the engine an"d front cars re
maining on the rails. The rear carg
mounted the pltaf orm of the station, de
molished the building and then turned
