the Employment Agencies.
There were forty-two wild-eyed Ital
ians at the union depot yesterday who,
could they understand and speak the
American language, would in all prob

claimed that it was understood that
when they arrived here they were to be
cared for and given work by C. 11. Bath
man, an employment agent here. When
they reached here, after giving up SO
each for transportation, they found no
work, and would have gone hungry had

The Homeopathic Institute Dis
cusses the Mind Cure.
"Psychological Medicine," commonly
known as mind cure, was earnestly dis
cussed by the Homeopathic institute at
the Nicollet house yesterday morning.
Dr. D.W. Horning, of Lake City, opened
the session with an interesting paper on
"Practical Psychological Medicine."
"Psychology,"he said,"is the oldest aud
perhaps the crudest and most undevel
oped branch of the medical profession.
The legendary witch who breathed her
incantation over the cauldron of boiling
herbs, the medicine man of the savage
tribes who muttered his senseless gib
berish over, his credulous victim and
thereby produced a change of mental
state that was efficacious, was the lineal
antecedent of the faithcurist of to-day.
We, as successful physicians, however,
cannot afford to ignore psychological
medicine as a useless piece of the
imagination fit for the ignorant and su
perstitious alone. We must still cling
to our scientific principles, but the fact
cannot be denied that the mental and
nervous condition does have an influ
ence on the action of the physical or
gans. Anxiety or grief will destroy the
appetite, and there are repeated in
stances where the chronic invalid, who
has gradually sunk deeper into the
meshes of a disease, had been revived
by a change of climate. These are in
stances of psychological medicine or
mind cure, and as such cannot be neg
lected by the physician who relies upon
his pills and powder."
Dr. D. 11. Roberts, of Owatonna, fol
lowed with a paper on "Psychological
Sanitation, which was well received.
He was warmly indorsed by Dr. E. R.
Perkins, of Excelsior. Dr. Leonard, of
this city, said he did not place implicit
confidence in the mind cure. During
the afternoon Drs. Nelson, Beaumont
and others presented papers o.i otology

A Divorce Case Which Contains
No Sensational Features.
Judge Loehren was engaged yester
day in hearing the divorce case of Marie
H. Stublin vs. Lewis P. Stublin. The
plaintiff is a modest-appearing woman
with a care-worn expression on her face
and, according to her story, her married
experience with the defendant has not
been very pleasant. She stated that
she married the defendant on the 20th
of last August, and that her age was
thirty-three years: that soon after her
marriage she found that he was addicted
to the use of intoxicating liquor, and
that while under its influence he was
very quarrelsome and violent, and had
often threatened to do her bodily harm
and had called her obscene names, and
at different times she had, for her own
safety, been forced to call to her aid the
police and have them take the defend
ant into custody. She also charged
him with having "failed to provide the
necessaries of life, although he is a man
of means and the owner of property of
the value of (10,000. The defendant ad
mitted that he often took more liquor
than was good for him, but denied that
he ever attempted to harm the plaintiff
or that he failed to provide the neces
saries of life. The plaintiff asks for a
divorce and sufficient alimony for her

Paul house here, which he built some
years ago, and has always been regard
