For the purpose of advancing
the interests of the tine arts, to
develop the influence of art in
education, and to foster the in
troduction of art in the manufac
tures, the Minnesota state legis
lature has enacted a law creating
the Minnesota State Art society.
It will be the duty of this
society, in order to accomplish
these objects, to arrange exhibi
tions of art and art-handicraft,
prepare courses of popular lee-.
tures on art and kindred sub
jects, to award prizes, and to ac
quire works of art and artistic
manufacture for a permanent
collection, to become the proper
ty of the state art society.
The law provides for the cre
ation of a governing board, con
sisting of nine members, seven
of whom shall be appointed by
the governor. Of these ap
pointees four shall be artists or
connoisseurs of art, one an arch
itect, one prominently identified
with education, and one directly
interested in manufacture. The
governor of the state and the
president of the state university
will be ex-officio members of this
board. All members serve with
out compensation as such.
Anyone presenting a work of
art, executed by himself, and
which shall be accepted by the
governing board, may become an
honorary member for life. Any
one, upon the endorsement of the
governing board and payment of
two dollars, may become a mem
ber for one year.
The first governing board has
been organized and consists, for
the most part, of residents of
St. Paul and Minneapolis. Greet
ings are being sent to all friends
of the arts in the state. The so
ciety will doubtless work great
benefit along certain lines to the
state. __________

Passengers Nearly KJ^ed by a Bomb
on the Track.
Butte, Mont., Sept. 20. That six
men were not seriously injured or per
haps instantly killed just outside the
city limits last night was not the
i'ault of some cowardly person who
placed a quantity of explosives on the
street railway track about 300 yards
east of the Northern Pacific crossing,
badly wrecking Car No. 25, which was
on its way from Columbia Gardens.
Fortunately no one was injured, the
passengers and street car employes
j'escaping with bruises, though the car
I was wrecked. Motorman William G.
Schmidt detected the burning end "of
the fuse of the bomb, taking it for the
light of some one wishing to board the
car, turned off the current and ap
plied the brakes. This act undoubted
ly saved the lives of all, as had the
speed teen unchecked the car would
have been directly over the bomb
when it went off. When within about
thirty feet of the bomb the explosion
occurred, throwing all to the floor and
covering them with the debris of the
car. The floor was blown from the
car and the windows shattered to
fragments. The police have discov
eredn trace of the miscreants.
No Pupil Who Smokes Them Will Be
Allowed in School.
Kenosha, Wis., Sept. 20.The city
of Kenosha has placed the ban on
cigarettes, and hereafter no pupil will
be allowed to attend the city schools
who is a victim of the cigarette habit.
Principal W. H. Hammill issued an
edict yesterday ordering the expulsion
of all cigarette fiends, and his action
will be backed up by the board of edu
cation. The action of the principal is
meeting with opposition on the part
of the boys and from the tobacco
dealers. A general strike among the
students is promised if the rule is en
forced. It is said that fully 50 per
cent of the boys in the high school and
grades are cigarette smokers.
Qne Pastor Urges Advertising as a
Milwaukee, Sept. 20.At two relig
ious gatherings in Wisconsin this
week the necessity of new and novel
methods to attract outsiders to church
and to revivals has been emphasized.
At the Methodist Episcopal conference
in Green Bay, Presiding Elder John of
the Oshkosh district, said it seemed
almost impossible to interest older
people, and advocated a concentration
of work upon children. At the Pres
byterian state meeting just closed
here, Dr. Sanderson urged the neces
sity of advertising the church, in order
to keep it upon the move.

Wheat in Shock Is Drying and Inter
est Now Centers in Flax.
St. Paul, Sept. 20. Northern Pa
cific and Great Northern reports yes
terday were that threshing is resumed
through Western Minnesota and in
many North Dakota localities, where
the constant rains of the past few
days have seriously interfered with
the marketing of grain.
President MeJlen, interviewed yes
terday in New York, said that 90 per
cent of the wheat along the line of
the Northern Pacific is safe beyond
all risk. As it relates to Western
Minnesota, St. Paul officials believe
this figure is somewhat high, and that
the Minnesota wheat district as a
whole will not show more than 65 per
cent threshed or safe from damage.
The wheat not protected is mainly
that in shock, which has dried first
and is the first to be threshed on the
resumption of operations. With the
return of clear dry weather the re
ports of damage to wheat are becom
ing less frequent. The present inter
est centers in flax, and all lines are
inquiring into the effect of the frosts
of the past weeek.
And the River Will Continue to
La Crosse, Wis., Sept. 20. The
worst flood experienced in this portion
of the Mississippi valley for years is
submerging thousands of acres of
farm lands along the river, sweeping
away stacks of hay and grain, drown
ing live stock in fields and doin in
estimable damage. The flood has en
tered La Crosse and to the lower por
tion of the North side fifty families
have been forced to move out of their
homes. The river has overflowed the
Chicago. Milwaukee & St. Paul tracks
on the levee and goods have been
moved out of the lower floors of the
long row of wholesale houses. Three
sawmills in this city have been forced
to stop work and thousands of dollars'
worth of lumber and wood piled up in
the yards is in danger of being
washed away. The local weather ob
server predicts the river will rise
nearly a foot more at this point.

Harlan, Iowa, Sept. 20.Edward W,
Davis, pi sident of the Shelby county
bank, committed suicide by shooting.
His body waa found early yesterday in
the furnace room of the bank build
ing. Davis was once a member of the

fairs are said to be in good condition.

widow and two daughters. Ill health
is thought to have prompted the deed.

tion in Many Ways.
Elkhorn, Wis.. Sept. 20.Walworth
county is holding a fair which exceeds
the state fair at Milwaukee both in
point of attendance and number and
character of exhibits. This is nothing
remarkable, for the fair has heen con

there was an attendance of over 15,-
000 people, coming not only from this

nesota as well, and the exhibitors are
from as far away as New Jersey.

Still Left in
the Northwest
And the Northern Pacific has a ntw and Tery Low Rate
for Colonists and Homeseekers in effect from September
15 to November 30, 1903.
This srives the Farmers a good chance to go homeseeking,
after crops are harvested, or any others who wish to move
into the growing, teeming, improving Northwest to visit
it at a trifling expense.
The finest valleys in the Northwest, good for grain, hay,
fruits, root crops, for mixed, stock or dairy farming, for
irrigation or not, as one wishes, are found along the
Northern Pacific 01' its branch or connecting lines. The
growing, thriving towns are |found there, too. It is a
great country.
