A TWILIGHT DREAM
We leaned upon the pasture rails
The first sweet stars were in the sky,
W heard the clink of milking pails
We watched the circling bats go by
With outstretched wings like dusky sails.
The orchard trees were dim and still.
Breathing sweet fragrance in their sleep
And meadow land and field and hill
The same soft slumber seem to keep
Even the ripple of-the rill
Was like a mourner in a dream.
And we, too, dreamed Her pen
sive face,
Pale as a star, I saw it gleam
A still light, in a lonely place
A bending flower above a. stream!
Her little hand, within my reach.
Lay quite untouched. You wonder why?
I answer you, with frankest speech,
That she was marriedand so was I
And we were married, each to' eabh!

NEW BOAT ABOVE STILLWATER
Arthur Stephens Is Building a Craft
for the Tourist Business.
STILLWATER, MINN,Mlnnesotans are again
^to have the. opportunity of ...viewing, the, beatir
Ities "of the" St. Croix river between Stillwater/,
"and Taylors Falls, Arthur Stephens of Lake
Elmo having commenced the construction of a
nantha boat that will accommodate seventy-five
or "more passengers and with which he expects
to make daily trips up and down the river.
For several years sand and debris of all
kinds have accumulated in the river to such
an extent that it was impossible for the
large river boats to navigate the St. Croix, ex
cept in very high water, but Mr. Stephens
thinks he has solved the problem of navigation
by constructing a boat that will not draw more
than fourteen inches of water.
Tourists frequently come here from the cities
and elsewhere to take the St. Croix river trip
and have been disappointed because boats were
not running. Mr. Stephens expects to have his
boat in operation by June 1. and will nvike
daily trips thereafter.
Prominent residents of this cltv and other
points along the river are also working hard
to get the government to dredge the channel
the coming season. In many places no work
at all will be necessary and it is said it will
not be difficult to prepare a channel that will
enable the large boats to run.
Street Commissioner Rellly will start the
city's stone crusher this week and several
streets are to be repaired with crushlngs. He
has had the street-cleaning force busy since
his appointment and the city has been mate
rially improved.
MOVE AGAINST MILLING CO.
Creditors Ask that Lanesboro Concern
Be Declared Bankrupt.
WINONA, MINN.The papers in the petition
to have the Lanesboro Milling company of Lanes
boro declared an involuntary bankrupt have been
returned to the office of the deputy clerk of
the United S.tates court in this city after hav
ing been served at Lanesboro.
The petition is nttde by C. E. Oliver of War
saw, Ind., who sets up an alleged unpaid claim
for $1,010.13 for commission and salary due
on sales of flour the Oliver Flour company of
Chicago for $50, alleged to be due for com
missions on sales of flour the S. Y. Hide Ele
vator company of La Crosse for ?1,400 claimed
to be due on wheat, and the Miller Publishing
company of Minneapolis for $20.40 claimed to be
due uadvertlsing.
It is maintained that the milling company
committed acts of bankruptcy last December in
paying less than four months prior to bank
ruptcy the sum of $5,000 to the National Bank
of La Crosse, $1,200 to the village of Lanes
boro and large sums of money to II. R. Wells
and W. H. Strong to the disadvantage of other
creditors also in permitting the Martin County
National bank to levy on certain property.
The court is therefore asked to adjudge the

PENMANSHIP IS
TOPIC OF REPORT
VERTICAL FORM THE BEST FOR
FERST THREE GRADES.
After That Pupils Should Be Permitted
Some Choice and a Forward Slant
Can Be Safely EncouragedPoints
from the Report of Committee Ap
pointed by State Superintendents.
Special to The Journal.
Winona, Minn., April 23.Brief reference was
made the other day to the report. of the com
mittee appointed by the Minnesota Superintend
ents* association to investigate the writing ques
tion. At that time the report had passed out of
the hands of Superintendent Frazler of this city,
but It has now been returned to him and it is
possible to refer to it somewhat more at length.
It is regarded as an important contribution to
educational work in Minnesota, and as reflecting
credit upon the extended study of the subject
by the committee, the other members of which
were C. C. Tonnlng, superintendent of the WM
mar schools, and J. M. McConnell, superintend
ent of the Mankato schools. The subject of
writing is "considered at length in six type
written pages leading up to the following con
clusions
FirstThe direction of writing, whether ver
tical or a slight forward or backward slant,
is not the most essential consideration.
SecondIn the intermediate and upper grades
the muscular movement should be taught.
ThirdGreater care should be taken in the
training of the pupils in proper position of the
body and manner of holding the pen.
Fou#thFor young children, say in the first
three grades, the advantages of the- upright or
vertical letter form over any other are so great
as to justify its exclusive use in these grades.
FifthAccompanying movement exercises In
the intermediate grades, and after pupils have
been habituated to careful pen-holding, the pu
pil's individuality should be allowed to assert
Itself as to the direction of his writing.
SixthWith skillful teaching and excellent su
pervision it is probably safe to encourage or,
require a forward slant in the intermediate and
upper grades, but without these It is believed
much better results will be obtained If pupils
are allowed *to continue the use of the vertical
form, unless their own natural tendency leads
them to adoot some modification or variation
from the vertical.
SeventhPupils going from one system of
schools to another should not be hampered by
any unnecessary or arbitrary requirements as to
the direction of their handwriting.
EighthThe fact that pupils change teachers
each year makes the use of copybooks important
if not essential.
NinthIn neither the grades nor the high
school should pupils be required to do any more
writing in a given time than they can do well,
and teachers, both grade and high school, should
Insist upon care and neatness in all the written
work of their pupils. We also recommend that
TenthWhen expedient, we recommend that
a special room fitted with tables be provided
pupils of grammar grades and high school.
EleventhWe recommend that more atten
tion be given to the writing material that
good pens, good penholders, good paper and good
ink be provided. We believe that false economy
in this matter has been detrimental to the work
in writing.
Leading up to these conclusions the respective
merits of the old slant or Spencerlan system
of writing and the vertical system are discussed
at length, and it is pointed out that prominent
advocates of both schools practically agree, at
least so far as pupils from about the fourth
gj'ade, and, upward a.re concerned,.. that move
ment exercises are of value as a means of -c'
ordinating the muscles of the arm to the .v\
quirements of easy and rapid writing.
LOCAL LAND OFFICE SUSTAINEr
Two Contest Cases from Cass County
Iteach Interior Department.
^rilte'tortracttorie provided "ror highTsciTooi ^bto^clpthing was torn^ff ^Pt^his^sboes,
pnplls who are deficient In writing.
CASS LAKE, MINN.The secretary of' the
interior has reversed the decisions of the com
missioner of the general land office In the con
test cases of Helga Hanson vs. Alfred Boutin
and George Hanson vs. Delphus Gamache. Ti-i
decision of the local land office was agalrtpt
the Hansons, and this decision was reversed
by the commissioner. The present decision is
a vindication for the register and receiver of
the Cass Lake land office.
The Hansons made settlement on the lands
prior to the time of opening and Boutin and
Gamache made filing on the same land at the
land office. The stand taken by the Interior
department is: "Without considering the, effect
the settlement commenced as trespass and in
violation of the order would have, upon the
continuing and subsequent acts of settlement
performed after the hour of opening. It cannot
be questioned that neither party secured any
right whatever by reason of their settlement
or of acts performed on the land prior to the
hour of 0 a.m., June 15, 1904, and as botli
were on the land at that tltne improving it.
their acts of settlement were simultaneous,
and upon that ground, neither can establish
priority rights. The right must necessarily be
controlled by the actual entry."
In the Gamache ense, the secretary holds
that both Gamache and Hanson were trespassers
and gives Gamache the. land because he filed
upon It before Hafison had filed. In the case
of Alfred Boutin, the decision is practically
along the same lines as in Hanson vs. Gamache.
Both are considered trespassers and Boutin, be
ing the first to file, Is considered entitled tc
the land in question. The decisions will have
bearing on several contests which have been
instituted since these enses were started.

On Friday the Thief River Falls attorneys ap
plied to the clerk of court to hav6 a writ of
mandamus issued directing the board of county
commissioners to call a special election. The
clerk declined to do Bo until a Judgment had
been entered. The moment he had finished
transcribing the judgment the Red Lake Falls
attorneys filed a notice of appeal, and the is
suance of the writ of mandamus was refused
because of such appeal. Today the attorneys
for Thief River Falls served an order to show
cause why the appeal should not be dismissed.
This order will come on for hearing in the su
preme court on Tuesday. If the order to show
cause be dismissed the hearing on the appeal
will not be heard until the next term of the
supreme court in October, and the county-seat
fight must remain in statu quo until that time.

HERRIOTT IMS
HIS OWN COUNTY
MORE JOY IN THE RANKS
CUMMINS MEN.
Special to The Journal!
Grundy Center, Iowa, April 23.Governor
Cummins on Saturday won over John Herriott in
Herriott's own county.
This disastrous blow to the Herriott candidacy
in opposition to Cummins has occasioned more
Joy among the Cummins supporters than almost
any other event of the campaign. Herriott's un
doing is explained by the fact that a vote for
him was regarded as a vote against Cummins.
It was the general belief that Perkins and Her
riott would unite their following* !n the state
convention. This was corroborated by the state
ment of E. E. Hart, editor of the Council Bluff3
Nonpareil, who declared the ninth district would
be for Herriott first and for Cummins never.
Congressman Walter I. Smith wrote a letter
urging support for Herriott, and Mr. Perkins'
newspaper construed the letter as decidedly hos
tile to Cummins. So the Grundy county result
means that the voters have gone to Cummins in
spite of the combined Influence of Herriott, Hart,
Smith and Perkins Cummins secured a good
pa^t of the ninth district five yeart' ago and it
was feared for a time that the Herriott candi
dacy would divorce some of this support from
him.
Of the 165 delegates to the county convention
it is declared that the first reports showed
Cummins to have 110. Herriott carried his own
township and part of another. At the Guthrie
Center caucuses resolutions were adopted as fol
lows
That we recognize the supreme issue ta the
present campaignthe question of the right of
railway" managers to dictate political nominations
to the people of Iowaand we declare our firm
dSnviction that our loyal support ought to be
given to the candidacy of Governor A. B. Cum
mins that under his courageous leadership
the people of Iowa will, thru the enactment of
a state-wide primary law, achieve a real inde
pendence and demonstrate their power and pur
pose to select their candidates for public offices
without the aid or consent of any railroad cor
poration.
We therefore invoke the patriotic surrender of
all consideration of personal feelings or local
sentiment as to candidates or issues, that we
may strongly unite our forces upon that one
issue, and we hereby instruct our delegates to
the county convention to he held on the 26th
Inst, to vote and work for the selection of a del
egation to the state convention instructed to vote
for the renomination of Governor Cummins.
SPIRIT LAKE, IOWA.At the republican

pany.
This is the first suit brought under the 8tat
ute, which makes it the duty of a railroad to'
maintain within this state on all trains trans
porting livestock a minimum speed of not less 1
than twenty miles an hour from the time the
stock is loaded until it reaches its destination,
deducting in the computation of such average'
speed only such reasonable time as livestock
may be delayed for the purpose of feeding and
watering.
The statute further provides that a railroad
company guilty of violating any of its provis- i
ions shall be liable to the owner of the live
stock in the sum of $5 an hour for each hour
any car is delayed. The complaint in the cose
covers twelve counts where it is alleged that
this statute has been violated by the defendant
road.
The action originally was brought in the
district court of Morton county, but was trans
ferred to the federal court. Unless it is taken
to some other subdivision of the federal judicial
district it cannot come on for hearing until
next spring, as the 1906. term of the court for
Bismarck has passed.
