Smith, who was made State Entomologist by the re coat legislators. The mosquitoes cam* from all over trie State, the Pro faasor having aecured a bottle full from each coanty. After hard work th? students and firemen got the mos qaitoeo safely out. Thev were afraid if they left them there the bottles would break and the mosqnitoes would ?aoape. Other nreaturea were saved, too great big black beetles with horus, seventeen rear locusts, house flies, gnats and cockroaches arid many other Insects from an orthoptera to a gryllas hem ml era or more plainly speaking, from a katydid to a cricket. When the collection made its appear ance on the outer lawn it soared the people more than'the students bayote s did. When the creatures were carried across the lawns it was hard work keeping the horses from running awav. The Hoist collection of moths and butterflies was waved under the per sonal supervision of President Austin Soott and F. H. Dodge. Mr. Dodge was torn between his desire to take pictures of the scene arid a desire to save property. The latt?r instinct triumphed and the moths were saved, although there is a difference of opin ion as to whether Mr Dodge or Presi dent Scott deserves the chief credit. Auyhow Prof. Smith's collections were saved and although the moths and mosquitoes may have gotten a little mixed up bat he will be able to go ahead with his work of ridding the State of its pests.

MINNEAPOLIS, April 24.-It baa been ascertained that ten persona, eight men and two women, were killed by the explosion at the plant of the Northwestern Star Oil company at the foot of Sixth avenue yesterday. The explosion came without an in stant's warning, and a second after the concussion the walls had been thrown down, and the entire structure was a mass of flames. Not a person in the office escaped alive. Although the cause of the explosion has not been determined, it is said that some of the employees of the com pany were emptying some oil tank cars into the tanks iu the basement of the building, and it is possible that sparks from a switch engine iguited the ln fhtmmable fluids. Several explosions followed in quick succession and made the work of the iiremen difficult and dangerous. The men could not approach the ruins, and ibe water thrown on the flames was without effect. The department could do nothing but allow the flaineB to burn themselves out. If yoa are looking for real estate investment read the column on page 2.
