In Honor of a Hero.
Minneapolis, Spt. 24. In the lit-
t'e town of New U m. this stit. and
which is crdited with a population of
le-s than 4,000, there will bs dedicated
tomorrow a monument wbich would do
credit to the largest ci'y of the coun
try. It bas ben erecte-i to the me
mory of Hermann, known to history as
the "hero of Germany," born sixteen
years before Christ and who was ca'led
Arminios by the Greek writers and
Armicius by the Romans. Indignant
t the opprtss.on of bis countrvmen he
obtained knighthood and citizenship at
-i,ome, a-a oy ruse Jiretenses in luce 1
the Roman army to advance beyond
the Ryan and there led them, into a
battle which resulted in a decisive de
feat. ' He was assassinated by his own
relatives in his thirtj -seventh year as
result or a popular impression th it
e was aimirjg at becoming a dictator.
Back of the dedication of this monu
ment in the town that bas grown up
roong tbe wilds of Minnesota is an
interesting story. The proi-jct was
uggested nearly twenty vears ago bv
Julius Brendt, a modeit unassuming
German architect of New Ulm. In the
matter be interested the stat lodge of
me sons oi nermann ana later the na-
lonal grand lodge, and for years the
nter body made a substantial contri-
ution to tr.e monument fund. When
the litter, towever, began to run into
the thousands thre arose a d'spute as
to where the monument should be sit
uated, and so hot a three-cornered fight
was brought about between Milwaukee.
St. Paul and Minneapolis tbat it was
decided to allow the pUe to so to tbe
town where the scheme originated.
The result some years later was the se
ssion of the entire grand lodge of
Wisconsin from the rational body and
h-is never returned. The dedication
ill be under the auspices of the na-
ional supieme lodge whicb has been in
ess on here sinr;e Tuesday In addi
tion to the citizens and members of the
supreme body ten thousand German
citizens from this and surrounding
states will witness the exercises.
He Will Economize.
Haurisburg, Pa., September 24.
The recently elected commander-in-chief
of the Grand Army of the Repub
lic, Lren. J. f. Gobin, oi Lebanon, has
made a decidedly popular move at the
outset of his administration in the gen
i ral order issued a few days ago to the
effect tbat in the interest of economy
him-e f and employes would serve
with ut salary. For tears tbe com
mander-in-chief has drawn $2,000 an
nually from the exchequer of tbe or
der, the adjutant gene al a similar sum
and tbe quartermas'er general 41.200
per annum General Gobin's order
will thus effect a considerable saving
in tbe expenses of the national council
of administration, and it is not regard
ed as probable that future administra
tions will go back to the salary sys

YpIIow Fever iu Texas.
Dallas, Texas, September 24. The
health boards of north Texas cities are
seriou-ly contemplating quarantine
aga nstSin Antonio, Houston and Gal
veston. The yellow fever is in 'all of
them, but is well controlled and kept
from public knowledge. The inspec
tion of all trains coming to Dallas is
very rig d. Travelers are not being
permitted to stay here.

Another Mine Horror.
Marton, 111., Sept. 24. An explosion
occurred in the Williamson County
Coal company's mine at 7 o'clock this
morning. Three men are dead, and
thirteen wounded have been taken out
Six others are missing, and undoubted
ly killed. Tbe mine is on fire, and
they cannot be rescued. Several of tbe
wounded are so severely crushed tbat
they cannot recover. Th min is lo
cal d four miles north of h.re. Ti.e -e
is an unusually large amount of natural
eas in the mine. The explosion was no
doubt caused by th's gas taking fire
from the miners' lamps as they de
scended this morning. Tbe loss of life
is Dot so heavy owing to the fact tbat
most of the American miners, or more
than half the force take holiday today
to attend the county fair. Most of
the men killed and wourded are
Russians. It is impossible to get their
names at this time. The force of the
explosion was very heavy, and blew
mules over 200 yards along the main
entry, and into the mining dump at the
bottom of the shaft, which is one hun
dred and eighty feet deep. One re
port siys that only four men 'are im
prisoned, while another one puts it at
eieveo. Great b'ame is laid against
tbe managers of the mine for not adopt
ing saier means oi controlling the gaB.
Only a short
time since the state in
spector of mines, examined the mire,
and twe managers were ordered to
plBce tbe gas under better control, or!
tbe mine would be closed because of the
great risk for men.
