Kansas City Star. Japanese servants long ago won, by their industry and efncr$ncy, the re spect of their American employers, else they would not be able to get salaries that range fiom $50 to $75 a month. Their yellow servants of other races are. just as appreciative of their abili ties. They know that they can be relied on to do- their own work and all that the other servants neglect. It is surprising how much a Japan ese will do of the work that five of six maids are hired to accomplish in a house. He will help the parlor maid at her duties one minute and the next will find him assisting the waitress to jiet the table He is not above help ing the chambermaid to clean the rooms 'and he loves to help, the laundress to carrv the bundles of clothes upstairs. He is delighted to run errands for the ,cook and is amiable enough to help the kitchen maid to peel potatoes when she is late at her work. All this aid and comfort to his fellow servants is given with no neglect to ihis^master's business. So there is 'nothing for the housekeeper to say against his varied efficiencies. He does, however, have the effect of making servant* more lazv and care less than oefore. He usually does about half their work. COMPARATIVE SUCCESS. Chicago Tribune.

Out to /the yards we went and we. joined the mayor, who was campaign ing for re-election. He was going up to a group of men, who stopped Work, wiped their hands on their clothes, and formed a shy group. ,i "I'm Mark Pagan," said the mayor as shyly. I have tried to serve you honestly and faithfully. I don't know how well, but yon Know my record. And if, you don't understand anything in it, I 'd like to have you ask me about it, If you think I have done right in most things, I'd like to have your sup- port." That was all. They shook hands, saying nothing, and he moved on. "Understand that?" said Connolly at my elbow. J'Every one of 'cm 'll vote "for him. Why? What's there to it?-" Mark climbed up into the tower and began. "I'm Mark Fagan "You needn't waste .yoiir time here," said the tower man, looking around steadily. "I. know you're Mark Pagan, and I know what you're doing. And-I'11 vote for you till hell freezes over." He flung over the switch and Mark retreated abashed. "Ho knows me," he said wonder ingly to me when he came down. Of course they all.know the mayor, but the mayor can't call them by name he hasn't a good memory for either names or faces, and I saw' him talk to men he had talked to before. So there is no flattery, and no familiarity, and that was one point which missed Connolly, who couldn't understand why those men didn't laugh or josh the mayor. Why don't they give him a song and dance?" he said. One man in a group I joined before the mayor reached it, did say he was going to "have some fun with Mark," and the others in a mood for horse play, dared the bold one to ask Fagan for "the price of a drink." I thought the man would, .but when Mark came up saying, I am Mark Fagan I have been mayor for two terms and I have tried to serve you," etc., the bold man was silent they were all respectful, and the psychology was plain enough. The mayor speaks. What Connolly calls "his little piece" with dignity, with the grave dignity of self respect,- and you feel, and those men feel, the per fect sincerity of Mark Fagan. ALL-PERVADING PHONE It Has Become Indispensable Alike for Social and Business Purposes. Ealph Bergengren in the World Today. The "telephone habit" once ac quired by the use of the instrument in business offices gained unquestionably a tremendous impetus when womankind discovered that the instrument is equally available for social purposes to say nothing of the sweet delight of shopping or the sad necessity of going to market. In New York and Boston important department stores have lately been finding profit in taking telephone orders during the night and delivering the goods early in the morn ing. The arrangement is the latest expression of what has been called the "telephone door" of business. And in nearly every retail industry- in our larger cities there are from one to several employees who might well be called "telephone clerks" and whose special qualification is a working famil iarity with the telephone as a shopping medium. Not only do the large modern hotels carry a telephone instrument in every room, but department stores are even now inaugurating a system of tele phones at every counter, thus putting -.the distant customer in immediate verbal touch with the clerk with whom he or she is accustomed to doing busi nessa system that includes hundreds of instruments in each department store that employs it. In these same cities, and in many smaller ones, grocers call up their customers by telephone and take the daily order without the expenditure of time needed for a per sonal visit. The large city restaurant does much of its marketing in the same fashion and often uses the instrument at rush hours to obtain a given article of food, temporarily exhausted from its larder, even while the prospective eater is only be ginning the first course of his dinner. And the man of business in "New York or Boston, as he sits at his hotel table, may order a telephone and transact business with the man who is lunching in Chicago. Police depart ments employ it to capture criminals and railroads are making it an import ant part of their signal service. CHILDREN'S GIFT T0~ ALICE Two Dainty Sachet Bags Done in "Alice Blue" From Italian School. From an Exchange. Pride beams forth from the face of every little child from sunny Italy that attends the east side Italian school at No. 24 Sullivan street, of which Miss Mattie Rhodes Satterie is principal, for they are in receipt of a letter of thanks from Miss Roosevelt MINNESOTA xfor a dainty wedding gift, the Work of the pupils. ^'Miss Alice," as the children call her, is enthroned in their hearts, for just, one year ago the president's daughter visited them and left behind a lasting memory of her presence. More than. that, the Roosevelt family have been patrons of the school ever since its founding, thirty years ago. After due consideration it was de cided that the gift should be two sach ets. "Alice blue" was selected as the color and china silk the material. Each sachet is one yard in length and pro portinately wide, and is daintily tufted with light-pink ribbon. A card bear ing the words "From the children of the east side Italian school, with their love,'' was imbedded in the fold of the saehets. Great excitement prevailed when the wedding gift was done up and dis patched, but there was almost a riot when there appealed a letter from the White House addressed to Miss Satterie. When order had been restored Miss Satterie, with the proper dignity, drew the letter from its envelope the pres ence of the children. It read: "Miss Roosevelt wishes to thank the children for her lovely wedding gift, which she highly prizes, and also for the love and best- wwhes that ac companied the gift." In all probability the note will be framed and placed in what Miss Sat terie calls her "Hall of Fame," along with an autograph likeness of the president presented the principal at Christmas time, and photographs of Jacob A. Riis, Mayor Low and others. THE SPRING HEADGEAR. Baltimore Herald. The spring style of headgear for wom en is out.

PRISON SITE NOT YET DECIDED ON STATE BOARD OF CONTROL TENDS TIME LIMIT. Stillwater Citizens' Committee Secures Options on Almost All Necessary Property at Oak Park and Expects to Secure Proposed New Penal Insti tution for Bluff CityCounty Com missioners in Session. Special to The Journal. Stillwater, Minn., March 7.After the meet ing of the governor and the board of control on the new prison site, the committee of citizens went to work on the site and right-of-way for a spur track to the Perro-Bean site near Oak Park. Late last night the committee made a statement to the following effect: The committee Is more than satisfied with the result of its efforts. These questions are vlr^ tually settled, options have been secured for the Perro-Bean and the Berger lands for a site and for nearly nil the right-of-way, the remaining pieces of right-of-way being very probably ob tainable and expected to be forthcoming in a day or two. This location will probably be se lected by the board of control If the titles prove to be good.. Governor Johnson, accompanied by his assist ant secretary, Harvey Grimmer, came from the cnpitol for a conference with the board of con trol and the committee of citizens on the sub ject of a site for the proposed new prison. Time Limit Extended. The board of control was holding its regular March meeting at the prison. Mayor Armson, L. L. Manwarlng, Ludwig Slmonet and M. L. Murphy of the committee of citizens submitted to the board a proposition which includes the much discussed Perro-Bean tract near Oak Park. The committee believes that its proppsition is within the terms of the board, and hopes it will be accepted. There are some matters of detail to be arranged, especially as to a right-of-way for a spur track, if that can be arranged, the offer will take a more hopeful turn. The com mittee was given four days further time to perfect the terms of its offer. The board of control heard twenty-six pris oners on applications for parole and on other matters, and granted five paroles. The financial statement for February shows collections on ac count of binder twine sales, $34,369.08 from miscellaneous sources, $9,735.28, much larger than nsual. The latter sum included $3,802.05 for labor in the twine factory, $4,628.65 for labor in the shoe shop and $122.75 as fees from visitors. County Commissioners Meet. The petition to establish a puhlic ditch in the village of St. Paul Park was dismissed by the board of county commissioners. The matter was presented a few months ago. A considerable number of property owners protested, and then the Milwaukee railway came forward with a proposition to pay the expense. That caused some of the opposition to withdraw. Th board of commissioners viewed the grounds yesterday. Today the Milwaukee company withdrew its proposition to hear the expense and the subject was dropped. Several property owners in the village threaten to begin legal proceedings against the Milwaukee road to compel it to drain lands that have been flooded by the con struction a few years ago of a track thru a small lake, making a fill that caused property to be flooded. Several damage suits already are pending In the district court. CAPTAIN PENGILLY DEAD Well-Known Northfield Arizona. Bonds Will Be Issued for Building at Virginia, Minn. VIRGINIA, MINN.At a meeting of the school board last evening it was decided to issue bonds for $40,000 to erect a graded school building in the south addition to the city. The structure will be of brick and will be modern in every respect. The work will be started im mediately in order that the school be ready for occupancy in September. The five school buildings In the city are filled to their utmost capacity. Two years ago the Roosevelt high school was erected at a cost of $65,000. The city is growing rapidly and the need of more school buildings is besoming more evident ctery day. The proposition to pave the main street with brick was made at the city council meeting, but action on It was deferred. BOB DEAF .MUTE Masked Men Steal Money from Home of Aged Couple.

Just is a deaf mute, 50 years of age, and the robbers abused him and his wife before the money was obtained. From a description given to the authorities. Sheriff Julius today rounded up three young men who live in MINNESOTA EX- state. Man Dies in DTJLUTH, MINN.Captain John Pengilly of Northfield, Minn., formerly manager of the Chandler and Minnesota mines on, the Vermillion range and well known in mining circles of the Lake Superior region and Pennsylvania, died yesterday in Arizona of pneumonia, in his fifty third year. The Information reached Duluth In a telegram from Mrs. Pengilly at Northfield, who wired the news to relatives. The telegram failed to state In what town in Arizona his death occurred. Captain Pengilly left Duluth about three weeks ago for Cananea, Mexico, where he was en gaged to demonstrate the caving system of mining for the Green Consolidated company. He retired from the mining business two years ago, resigning as manager of the Chandler and*' Minnesota mines, and removed with his family from Tower to Northfield. where he owned a large and valuable farm. His acceptance .of the offer of the Green Consolidated was his first return to the mining business, even for a short time. NEED NEW SCHOOL (that neigh borhood. They axe sons of farmers,.

WIS.The postoftice de partment has begun here the enforcement of its rule that farmerB must keep the roads in good, passable condition if the free rural delivery service is to be continued. As a consequence many farmers in the town of Erin Prairie, formerly served by rural route No. 3 of Bald win, 'Wis., find themselves without the sflBvlee, and they claim that the fault is not theirs, but that of others nearer Baldwin. Ijfforts are now being made to secure seryice from this city. The postofflce department requires good, pass able highways, open to travel the whole year round, as one of the conditions on which free rural delivery service is granted and maintained. The officials are. giving more attention to this matter of highways than ever before, and similar orders wiU be made covering other localities if the farmers are negligent in the matter of roads. All the inspection work for the proposed county system of rural free delivery for St. Croix county Is now complete, and it lis expected that the complete service covering the entire county will be ordered at no distant dflte. Postmaster Franc A. R. Van Meter has been reappointed by President Roosevelt. There was practically no opposition, it being taken for granted that Postmaster General Cortelyou's policy of retaining in office those postmasters with excellent records would hold good in this case.

Duluth Man Says People of Northern Minnesota Should Take Immediate Steps to Prevent Proposed Action on, Law that Is for the Poor Man and Gives' Reasons Why It Should Re main in Force. Special to The Journal. Duluth, Minn., March 7.For nearly nine years William Culkln has been register of the United States land office at Duluth, and during that time he has had probably as good an opportunity to observe the workings of the United States land laws as any man living. Moreover he has the trained legal mind that can consider the subject judicially. He has always refrained from giving utterance to his opinions, believing that his official position might cause his attitude to be misjudged. Today he is out of office, however, and he places himself strong ly on record against the repeal of the timber and stone law. There has been much agitation for the removal from the statute books of this law on the ground that a great deal of fraud has been perpetrated under it. This, Mr. Cul kin answers, and points out that it is the poor man's law. He says: "Steps should be taken by the people of north ern Minnesota to impress on the minds of their representatives In both houses of congress the fact that the repeal of the timber and .stone act is not desired by the people of this section. It Is one of the most meritorious land laws on the statute books, and its repeal wouldofbetha blow to the development of this0 LUMBERMEN FEED DEER Tons of Hay Given to Hungry Game in Mionigan Woods. HOUGHTON, MICH.Near Kenton, a lumber ing town in Houghton county, an uncommon sight is presented at various places along the logging roads of a lumber company. Because of the unusually deep snow, deer are having a dif ficult time to find food this winter, and the lumber company has come to the rescue by put ting out hay in different places. That the fodder is appreciated is apparent from the well-trodden runways leading to the feeding grounds and from the manner in which the hay disappears.) Many tons of hay already have been contributed to the animals. STEALS ONLY CLOTHING Butte Police Puzzled Over Mysterious Operations of Burglar. BUTTE, MONT.The police are puzzled" over the operations of a gentlemanly burglar who seems to have a penchant for evening attire, and at present four city detectives are devoting their entire time to an effort to run the disciple of Raffles to earth. Thus far they have had but little success, altho they have succeeded in recovering considerable property that htf bad purloined. In the past two weeks, the Montana and Gold berg apartment houses and the residence of Assistant County Attorney Walker have been visited by the burglar.

The creditors wiU receive 50 cents on the dollar net.

He was a farmer l'vinr about four miles east of this citj and while hero on business was suddeul stricken with herfrt failure and died ulmost instantly _ ife&i^fe!! Wri MICHIGAN part Reason for Law's Appeal. "It is essentially a poor man's law and gives the northern pioneer a chance to get on In the world, being one small recompense to him for his work in developing a new country. Any-j, one who investigates the matter will find that the law is being taken advantage of, not by the dishonest, but in fact by the best class of our people. Farmers, mechanics, business men, edi tors, bankers, clergymen and people of other worthy callings invest their savings in land under this law, and at once begin to pay taxes on the land they buy. "It Is true that there has been fraud under this law, but that is true of every law I ever heard of. The fact remains, however, that as the stone and timber law is now administered, fraud has been almost Entirely eliminated. Such fraud as may be found is merely sporadic, not general. Fraud arises not from bad laws, but from lax or corrupt administration. "No one has advanced as yet a plausible reason why this beneficent statute should be re pealed. One idea advanced is that the lands should be reserved for homesteads. But some of our land is of such a character that it is not taken as homesteads. Our best lands are now homesteaded. "Why segregate 1,000,000 or more acres of government land to be .added to the gloomy, unproductive wastes now held by the state? Why not get these lands on the tax rolls to aid in upbuilding the northern counties? "It is true that speculators in scrip would benefit by the repeal. Certainly these specu lators, who usually get something for nothing from the government, are not its favorites. At the same time they are the only ones who would reap a profit from its repeal. It would be a wrong to the people and to the towns, villages, school districts and counties of the northern country, the very interests which the proposed repeal is mistakenly supposed to serve."

Bigge was not armed, but on the dashboard of' the sleigh was a lantern with a reflector. He grabbed this and turned It on the wolves.. The light frightened them, and they fled. Gaining courage and a keener appetite, they returned, but they were kept In check by the light, and as the rig entered the small clearing at Union Bay they slunk away. There are no buildings at Union Bay and Bigge continued on his jour ney. From Union Bay to the Halliwell mine, woods line the road on both sides, and when these were entered the animals again put In an appearance. Nerve-Backing Bide. The light was turned upon the wolves, bdt they were getting more courageous and began to creep up along the sides of the sleigh. Bigge realized that the situation was getting desper ate. In the sleigh was a quantity of hay and a tin pall. Despite that the horses were terror stricken and were dashing onward at full speed In the difficult road, Bigge filled the pail with hay and managed to ignite It. The flames frightened the animals. The Are was kept burning, but in spite of this it looked as if the wolves would charge the-rig. The pack drew closer and closer, and were about ready to close in when the man tore open a box of canned goods and began hurling the cans at them, striking two or three of the foremost ones upon the head. They snarled fiercely, but slunk back and, before they got ready to make another onslaught the- clearing at the Halliwell mine was reached. Bigge rushed the team into the blacksmith shop and lost no time in getting into the office building, where he remained for the balance of the night.. The wolves had" returned to the sleigh, and a coat which had been left in it was torn to shreds. A nerve-racking ordeal similar to Btgge's was experienced last week by 6. M. McLaughlin, a merchant tailor of Munising, and James Lane of Wetmore, Alger county. COSTLY FACULTY BANQUET Committee to Probe Wisconsin Univer sity Social Expenditures.
