Nine firemen were injured and prop
erty valued at $60,000 was destroyed in
a fire which broke out in a five-story
building in Minneapolis. None of the
firemen were fatally injured, while the
fire loss is nearly covered by insurance.
The origin of the fire is unknown. I
was discovered by the night watch
man at the Lyman-Eliel Drug* com
pany, who saw smoke issuing- from the
front windows in the fifth story. No
sooner did the first piece of apparatus
arrive at the fire than a general alarm
was sounded and the battle began in
earnest. No fewer than eleven hose
lines were laid and every effort was
made to keep the flames confined to
the burning building.

Olsen reports that, although the num

1903 to 29 in 1901, the enrollment in
creased from 4,359 to 4,906, and the
average daily attendance increased
from 3,011 to 3,623. I spite of this
increase the cost of maintaining the
school fell off from $26,346 to 825,840.
The per capita cost fell off from $6.05

18.—Henry G. Davis Wednesday was
formally notified of and formally ac
cepted his nomination by the demo
cratic party for vice president of the
United States. The ceremonies took
place in the open air in the grounds
of Green Brier, White Sulphur Springs
hotel. Representative John Sharp
Williams, of Mississippi, delivered the
Mr. Davis Accepts.
In accepting the nomination Mr. Da
vis said in part:
"Unexpectedly called as I am now to
the forefront, I am Impelled to an ac
ceptance of the obligation by a sense
of gratitude to my fellow workers and
the hope that I may be able the better
to assist in restoring to power that
party whose principles and past his

and constitutional administration of

platform upon which I have been nom

election much stress was laid by re
publican speakers upon the prosperous
condition of the country and forebod
ings were heard of the ill results ^spe
cially to the laboring man, which
would follow any change in the politi
cal complexion of the government.
Evils Under Republican Rule.
"It is true that the times then were
good, but it is no less a fact that, while
there has been no change in the party
in power, many of the evils prophesied
have come under republican rule. Four
years ago factories, mills, mines and
furnaces were in active operation, un
unable to supply the demand, but now
many are closed, and those that are
open are being operated with reduced
force on short hours.
"Then wages were high, labor was
scarce and there was work for all. Now
work is scarce, many wage earners un
employed and wages reduced. Th ap-Cleveland
prehension which now prevails in busi
ness circles and the present unsatisfac
tory industrial conditions of the coun
try seem to demand a political change.

increased under republican rule.
Says Democracy Should Succeed.
"With a candidate whose personality
appeals to the good sense and sound
judgment of the American people, a

and a reunited party earnest for the

ficially notifying Mr. Watson of his se
lection. After a formal notice that he
would soon prepare a formal letter of
acceptance, Mr. Watson gave up a great
portion of his address to a discussion of
the democratic and republican platforms
and the candidacy of Judge Parker.
refwred to the democratic candidate's
gold telegram as follows:
"Surrounded by the Wall street mag
nates who had financed his campaign
for two years, Judge Parker bided bis
time till the perils of the two-thirds rule
were passed and when it was too late
for the convention to retrace its steps—
for even the democratic bosses require
more than 15 minutes to turn complete
ly round in—he cracks the Wall street
whip over the heads of his leaders, and
with prompt obedience that great demo
cratic legions were made to furl their
flags and reverse their line of march."
M!r. Watson diiscussed the various
planks in the platform of the republican
andi democratic parties, and said the
two platforms were almost identical.
"Boiled down to its real essence, sifted
to its real meaning, the democratic cam
paign of 1904 is a mere unscrupulous
hunt for office."

,THE MIXING OF CREAM.m
Combine of Han and Factor SIttm
Lowers Quality of Batter.
Whether hand or factory skimmed
cream should be mixed would depend,
first, upon the quality of the cream
second, upon the kind of market for
the butter third, upon the amount of
hand separator cream when compared
with the amount of cream from the
milk, and, fourth, upon general cream
ery conditions, writes C. Larsen of the
Iowa Butter school.
If the cream comes to the creamery
in just as good condition as that ob
tained from the whole milk skimmed
at the factory, then there is no danger
of mixing the two kinds of cream,
while, on the other hand, if it comes in
a poor condition, as most hand separa
tor cream does, then precaution should
be taken. A buttermaker friend told
the writer a short time apo that he fa
vored the mixing of the two kinds of
cream because if the hand separator
cream was churn'ei separately it pro
duced a quality ot butter which was
very poor, while, on the other hand, if
the two were mixed a better quality
as a whole was obtained. There is no
question that the above is true, but
evidently if the butter from the hand
separator cream was raised that from
the whole milk was lowered, so the
quality of butter received from both
was poorer than that which could have
been obtained from the whole milk if
If the creamery operator is working
strictly for quality and the butter is
sold on that basis, then it certainly
would not be a good idea to mix the
two. On the other hand, if the butter
is sold on a market where the butter is
not graded closely, then it might pay.
By mixing the two it might be possible
to raise the quality so as to bring all of
it on the market at so much above
creamery extras, while if the cream
from the whole milk was kept separate
perhaps no greater price could be ob
tained for that butter. If the butter
from the poor hand separator cream
was placed on the market by itself,
evidently it would not command the
same price as that made from the
whole milk or the mixed.
Decline of Oleomargarine.
Getting Eve Wit Martin.
Martin Hobbs was a man of uncer»
tain temper, but of such importance in
his native town that the lash of his
tongue was borne with patience by
those to whom he grudgingly minis
tered in his capacities of iceman,
plumber and janitor of the town hall.
In the course of his duties as janitor
he reduced almost to the verge of tears
a young woman who asked forth key
of a room in the town hall where cer
tain records were kept.
Martin knew that she was writing
the history of the town, but he did not
propose to strew her path with roses.
"Lockin' and unlockin'," he grumbled
as he began fumbling in his pockets,
"potterin' and putterin', fussin' and
fidgetin', and what does it amount to
when all's said an' done? Anybody ast
ye to write a hist'ry? Who's agoin' to
read it? Here's your key, and mind
you fetch it back and lay it on that
table if I'm not here."
The town assessor was at work
where he heard this ungracious ad
dress, and when the young woman re
turned the key he said indignantly:
"Martin outdid himself in rudeness
this morning, I should say."
"Oh, well," said the young historian,
"he felt a little cross and had to
grumble that's all."
"Never you mind," said the assessor
cheerfully. "I' going to make out
his tax bill today, and I shall assess
him for seven more hens!"
Firs Briton I India.
The first Englishman who is known
for -certain to have gone out to India
was, according to a writer in an Indian
paper, a certain Thomas Stephens, a
member of a well to do Wiltshire fam
ily and an Oxonian, who landed, some
where near Goa about the year 1579
and spent forty years in Jesuit mission
ary work in Goa and the neighborhood.
Stephens not only succeeded master
ing Marathi and Konkani, which were
the languages spoken by the majority
of the people on the west coast, but
left behind him among other works in
Marathi of literary merit the "Purana,"
an epic, and it is in his capacity as the
author of this that Stephens' name is
best known among the west coast in
The poem contains over 11,000
strophes of four lines each. I nar

led up to the establishment of the
Christian religion and from the crea

Previous to the enactment of the new is & N a

The microscope teaches us that there
are animals so wonderfully minute
that if a thousand of them were rank
ed abreast they could easily swim,
without being thrown out of order,
through the eye of the finest cambric
needle ever made. Yet each of the
minute creatures is a highly organized
number of particles, capable of moving
about, of finding and devouring food
and of behaving in all respects as be
comes an animal as distinguished from
a fragment of unorganized matter.
The human mind is utterly incapable
of realizing the structure of these lit

their marvelous adaptation to the life
they are destined to lead.—Sir Robert
