A Chemist's Opinion on Skin Diseases.
Mr. Eug. A. Pfefferle, the chemist
and drug-gist, says that in all his
scientific and business experience he
has never found any remedy so suc
cessful as ZEMO for the treatment of
Eczema, Itching Skin Diseases, Dan
druff, Pimples. Blackheads, and all
diseases of the skin and scalp. He
says that not only do its curative
qualities make it popular but also the
fact that it i3 a clean, liquid remedy
for external use. A wonderlul im
provement over the old greasy salves
and lotions which are not only un
pleasant to use but do not destroy the
germ life that cause the disease. ZEMO
draws the germs to the surface and
destroys them, leaving the skin clear
and healthy. Can be used freely on
infants. Mr. Pfefferle will gladly sup
ply those who call, with a free sample
bottle of ZEMO and a booklet which
explains in simple language all about
Skin Diseases and how to cure your

ATTORNEY MUST 60 TO JAIL
Supreme Court Upholds Lower TrN
bunal in Case Against Ernest S.
Cary of Minneapolis
Ernest S. Cary, Minneapolis attor
ney, must serve thirty days in jail
and has been disbarred from practice
in the courts of Minnesota for a period
of two years. This is the decision of
the state supreme court.
There were four charges against
Cary in addition to a contempt of
court charge, which was appealed to
the supreme court from Minneapolis.
The charges on which Cary was dis
barred were: Misappropriation of
money belonging to a client receipt
of money for services not rendered
deception in a real estate mortgage
deal unprofessional, disrespectful and
contemptuous conduct toward a trial
Cary has been prominent in the
Hennepin county courts for several
years, being counsel in several famous
criminal cases, the last of a particu
larly sensational nature being his de
fense of Belle Brennan, the Minneap
olis woman convicted and sentenced
to life imprisonment on the charge of
having murdered three of her step
On being notified of the court's de
cision Mr. Cary declared that he
would immediately start serving his
thirty-day sentence. After he had
made this statement Mr. Cary filed as
a candidate for the district bench of
Hennepin county. He declared he
would begin his campaign as soon as
he had finished his workhouse sen
NAMES "SEED CORN WEEK"
Governor Believes More of That Grain
Should Be Produced.
Believing Minnesota ought to take
higher rank as a corn state, and that
proper selection of seed would bring
such returns as would lead to greater
corn acreage, Governor Eberhart has
issued a proclamation setting apart
the week of Sept. 12 as "seed corn
week" The doucument sets forth rea
sons given by the experts at the state
experiment station for planting more
and better corn and the special pur
pose is to have seed corn properly se
lected by going through the field be
fore the corn is gathered. The proc
lamation says, in part:
"Heartily agreeing with the experi
ment farm experts in the estimate of
the importance of seed corn, I hereby
appoint the week of Sept 12 to 17,
inclusive, as seed corn week, and
would join in urging that every farmer
in Minnesota shall, on some day of
that week, make it his special duty
to go through his cornfield and select
for seed the best ears from the stur
diest stalks, carefully storing them
according to the suggestions made in
Extension Bulletin No. 9, which may
be had by writing to Extension divi
sion, University Farm, St. Paul."
JOHN LIND MAY ACCEPT
Son Says Father Has Not Declined
That John Lmd may accept the
Democratic nomination as governor is
indicated in two letters received in
St. Paul from Mr. Land's son, Norman
Lind, of Everett, Wash.
Frank A. Day, chairman of the Dem
ocratic state central committee, re
ceived one of these letters.
In this the interview purporting to
be from John Lind and saying he
would not serve as governor if elected
is branded as false.
According to Norman Lind, John
Lind gave out no interview after the
nomination was made.
All the messages received at Ever
ett and Seattle following the action of
the state convention were kept sealed
and handed to Mr. Lind as he was
leaving for Alaska.
John Lind's statement of accept
ance, or at least for permission to use
his name, is expected as soon as he
returns from the North.
PUSH DULUTH STEEL PLANT
In Less Than a Year Production Is
Expected to Begin.
Within three weeks steel will reach
the site of the new steel plant of the
United States Steel corporation on the
St. Louis- river at New Duluth and
with the steel will come the men who
are to make the whirlwind start on
the construction of what eventually
will be one of the greatest plants of
the kind in the country.
Duluthians are beginning to awaken
to the fact that the steel plant not
only is begun, but also that the most
difficult and tedious part of the work
is nearing completion. All the work
that has been done up to the present
time has been essentially of a pre
paratory nature. When the steel
comes a new phase of construction
will have been reached and the prog
ress made after that time will be
rapid. In less than a year the Minne
sota Steel company should be making
steel at New Duluth.
TAFlg| ACCEPTS INVITATION
Will Attend Conservation Congress at
President Taft has accepted St.
Paul's invitation to address* the second
National Conservation congress on the
opening day, Sept. 5.
Taft's acceptance puts the final
mark of success on the efforts of the
Twin City committee which, headed
by Governor Eberhart, went to Bev
erly to present to the president in per
son an urgent invitation to attend the
conservation meeting. Two meetings
were had with the chief executive.
Mr. Taft let it be known that he was
thoroughly satisfied with the program,
but reserved his decision. Now the
matter is settled and St. Paul is to
have the historic distinction of en
tertaining a president and an ex-presi
dent at the same convention.
The president's address will be the
principal feature of the opening day
of the congress, following close on the
heels of the addresses of welcome
from Governor Eberhart, Mayor Kel
ler, President Baker and other officials
of the congress and of the conserva
tion association. The remainder of
the day, which has been given the
name of "President's and Governors'
day," will be given over to the chief
executives of the states for free and
open discussion of the phases of con
servation which are nearest their
THE COST OF GOVERNMENT
Tax Commission Collecting Data From
Every Part of State.
Work has been started under direc
tion of the state tax commission to
obtain a complete analysis of the cost
of government in Minnesota. Blanks
are being sent out to more than a
thousand county, city and village offi
cers calling for detailed information.
Under the law the tax commission
has the right to demand replies. The
results will appear in the next bien
nial report ot the commission. If the
work be reasonably successful Minne
sota will be the first state to accom
plish it. The work is in charge of
Professor R. H. Hess of the depart
ment of economics and political sci
ence of the state university, as statis
tician. He will direct the compilation
and analysis of the information as it
The commission can get records of
all receipts from property taxes, cor
poration taxes, state licenses and fees
from the state auditor and treasurer,
but the work also calls for a record
of all local fines, fees, licenses and
bond issues. Schedules have been
distributed to get this information
from every county and municipality
in the state.
EDITOR SEES BANK LOOTED
Robbers Get Drop on Scribe Who Dis
covers Them at Work.
While Claude H. Mackenzie, lawyer
and editor of the Onamie Lake
Breeze, stood a half hour with his
hands held as far aloft as physical en
durance would allow, three yeggmen
cracked the safe in the First State
bank and departed with $1,900 in bills
and $200 in silver. The way they made
their escape from town is a mystery.
Mr. Mackenzie lost no time in giving
the alarm as soon as he got out of
range of the robbers' six-shooter3.
A railway section tool box was
broken open by the robbers in order
to provide them with tools for their
work. They gained entrance to the
bank through the rear door. Though
the safe was wrecked it was evident
that the job was done by profession
PAST RECORD VERY GOOD
So President Taft Commutes Sentence
of Captain Hand.
President Taft has commuted the
sentence of a courtmarital that Cap
tain Daniel W. Hand, formerly of St
Paul, be dismissed from the army
without honor for drunkenness, vio
lating a pledge of temperance and ab
sence without leave.
Because of his previous excellent
record and gallant conduct with the
Fifteenth Minnesota volunteers in the
war with Spain the president com
muted the sentence to reduce Captain
Hand to the bottom of the list of field
artillery captains, where his name
must remain five years, and he be
confined for one year to the limits of
the military reservation where his
battery may serve.
PUZZLES THE PHYSICIANS
Epidemic at Coleraine Kills Many
An epidemic of disease has broken
out among the children of Coleraine.
Over a score are ill and four deaths
have occurred in the past few days.
Physicians are puzzled over the dis
ease and so far have been unable to
diagnose it. They say it bears no re
semblance to infantile paralysis, but
is no less fatal.
St. Paul Has 214r744 People.
St. Paul has a population of 214,744,
according to the thirteenth census
figures just made public by Census
Director Durand at Washington. These
figures show a gain in St. Paul's popu

census was taken, of 51,679.

fGeorge Brutker, a German, who ar

idly his wife was becoming American

railroad room at Ellis island to buy
tickets he found the 700 marks he had

had been either lost or stolen on ship
board. Mrs. Brutker came to his help
at this embarrassing moment. She
produced 300 marks which she had
hidden in heT-clothes and paid for the

H00SIERS RAISE FISHWORMS.
Lack of Bait Starts New and Profitable
Raising fishworms is a new industry
in Greenfield, Ind., and so far as
known is not even carried on in a
small way in any other locality in the
Hoosier State. The scarcity of bait at
the northern lakes, where several for
tunate Greenfield lads spend the sum
mers with their parents, led to the in
Ordinary angleworms are obtained
regardless of size or condition and
placed in boxes prepared with soft fer
tile soil. They are then developed by
careful feeding. The food is milk and
sweetened water. On this the worms
thrive and become large and tempting
food for the fish. The fishermen ship
this carefully prepared bait to the
lakes, and as a usual thing they are
favored with the big catches.

NILE OYSTERS ARE LARGE.
Important Geological Discovery Made
Dr. Hume, head of the Egyptian geo
logical survey, says in an article in
the Cairo Scientific Journal that gov
ernment engineers constructing a bridge
from Boulac to Ghezireh while boring
for the erection of the piers came
across the remains of an old building
on which were found clinging a large
number of oysters of a giant species.
Some of them have most perfect
mother-of-pearl. They belong to what
is called the Aetheria nilotica, and
traces of this species are to be found
all over Egypt, but above the present
level of the Nile. Their existence in
such places has greatly helped scien
tists in determining previous courses
of the river.
The Nile oyster has some interesting
comrades in the Nile crab and the
lanistes, a sort of snail, which differs
from the ordinary snail in that it has
its spiral wound in the reverse direc
tion. It remains to be seen whether
this oyster is of an edible nature.
This discovery of pearl bearing oys
ters is interesting in view of the ex
periments of the Soudan government
in the Red sea.

CHINA TO HAVE ARMY OF
23,000,000 FOR WARFARE.
Compulsory Military Service Gives
"Awakening" Formidable Aspect.
The announcement of the forthcom
ing establishment of universal com
pulsory military service in China has a
formidable sound. The man who is
about to become secretary of war in
the Chinese cabinet and who makes
this announcement as a forecast of
the policy which he will adopt gives
us a significant reminder of what
such a system may theoretically mean.
Germany, with a population of 60,
000,000, has a standing army in time
of peace of more than 600,000 and a
war strength of 3,765,000. On the
same basis China, with a population
of 400,000,000, would have a peace
standing army of 4,000,000 and a war
strength of more than 23,000,000. Such
an army, composed of first class fight
ing men, would be overwhelming
against any other nation in the world,
If not against any conceivable combina
tion of nations, wherefore a super
ficial pessimist might argue that the
end of all things for the non-Chinese
world was in sight.
The meaning of the awakening is to
be that China will at least be strong
for self defense and that therefore
she will be able to demand and to
exact the same respectful treatment
that other nations enjoy.
That may be unwelcome to those
who have assumed that the most popu
lous country of the globe would always
remain a helpless mass, which others
might bully, exploit and plunder at
The awakening of China has been
inevitable, and it has been and is a
part of the most ordinary common
sense for the world to recognize that
fact and to prepare for its realization.
It is within the power of the rest of
the world to determine to a consider
able degree what shall be the charac
ter and the purport of that awakening.
ROSE WINE 289 YEARS OLD.
Germany's Most Celebrated Vintage
Kept at Breme.
The most celebrated of all the wines
of Germany is known as rose wine,
and, according to a French contempo
rary, it is jealously preserved in the
town hall of Breme.
The wine has been in the vaults since
1621, wjjen the conscript fathers had
six great vats made at Johannisberg
and six others at Hockheimer. Each
received the name of one of the apos
tles. It is an unwritten law that as
soon as a bottle of wine is drawn from
the vats a similar quantity of the same
vintage is put into the tun consequent
ly they are always full.
Each of the tuns or vats in the town
hall at Breme cost originally £48 and
their capacity is 204 litres, or about fif
ty-seven gallons. Our French statisti
cian comes the conclusion that each
time a bottle of this wine is drunk it
represents a sum of over £50.
During the war of 1870 the French
occupied the town, and the officers,
braving the anger of the council of
Breme, made free with their precious
wine, and it was said that the town of
Breme paid more to France than all
the other towns in Germany. At the
time of the crown prince's wedding we
further learn that he was allowed one
bottle and one only.

MEAT BOYCOTT'S STARTER.
Fred Sebelin Believes Fight For Cheap
er Food Will Be Won.
Fred W. Sebelin, a foreman in a
factory at Cleveland, O., is the man
who started the meat boycottjthat in
two days spread over Cleveland like
wildfire and has gone now all over the
United States. Z,1
Not that Sebelin is "scrappy" by na
ture, for personally he is a kindly man.
But he is a born leader. That is why
only six meat orders were called for
in the general dining room of the fac
tory the other day when nearly 200
hardworking men rushed in to satisfy
the ravenous appetites born from hard
Sebelin is the general foreman, but
he is not of the "biled shirt," college
variety of manager. His overalls are
as grimy and oily as those of the
greenest helper, his hands and his mus
cles as hard. The boys beg tobacco
from him and he from them.
Sebelin does not give orders nor
send an instructor when a new man is
"stumped" on a piece of work. He
gives a practical illustration. He him
self has worked up from the stock
room, and his secret is knowing how.
He has a temper that shows in his
piercing black eyes—has it because he
seldom allows it to get away from
him. They are strange eyes, because
with their penetration there are sparks
of humor. There is also a certain re
tirement. So that Sebelin looks the
general, the humorist and the picture
of bashfulness, and in truth he is all
three. Sebelin was bashful when his
sudden prominence was mentioned, but
he was the general when he spoke of
"It's a winning fight, of course," he
said. "The people seem to realize that
it is their last chance. They have been
suffering a long time. They are now
showing the inborn American inde
pendence. Buy no meat and the bat
tle is won. It's rather bitter medicine,
but a sure cure."
Quarrels of Friends.
I think I have observed universally
that the quarrels of friends in the lat
ter part of life are never truly recon
ciled. A wound in the friendship of
young persons, as in the bark of
young trees, may be so grown over as
to leave no scar. The case is very dif
ferent as regards to old persons and
old timber. The reason of this may
be accounted from the decline of the
social passions, and the prevalence of
spleen, suspicion, and rancor, towards
the latter part of life.
