Col. Ed Davenport has named Eugene
Hay as a candidate for the legislature
to succeed C. H. Pettit. Some of the
voters of the Twenty-ninth district,
however, think that it would be just as
well to allow Eugene to decide whether
he is i citizen of Minnesota or Indiana
before sending him to the legislature.
But the Republicans should be careful
how they ignore these "Hoosiers," for
unless they are given some office
immediately after their arrival,
they will remove to some other city
where they can get office. It was only
by giving R. G. Evans, another Indiana
man. the presidency of the Union
league, before he had lived in the state
six months, that he was induced to stop
with us and he only gave up the office
to Col. Stratton, another newcomer
from Hoosieruom, after he had secured
a place on the state central committee.
One of the old war horses of the g. o. p.
said a few days ago that between the
foreigners and the "Hoosiers" an
American stood a pretty poor show to
secure an office from the Republican
party of Hennepin county.
A rumor is afloat that Col. Freeman P.
Lane has been informed by the powers

ture next winter as a member from this
county. Freeman might as well give up
the idea of ever going to the legislature,
for he has been trying to get there for
the last fifteen years and has always
been invited to make himself scarce
whenever he stood any show of getting
Don. C. 11. Pettit has notified his
friends that he will not be a candidate
this fall for the legislature. He gives
as a reason for withdrawing from the
contest, that his health will not permit
of his stopping in Minnesota during the
winter months. It seems a little queer
that Mr. Pettit should not have made
the discovery that he would be unable
to withstand the rigors of a Minnesota
winter until he had made a careful can

probably go Democratic.
The Eleventh ward is the scene of a
three-cornered fight, which is being
waged between Dr. Charley W. Drew,
Dr. Dan F. Collins and Dr. Willie K.

on the Republican legislative ticket.
As the Eleventh ward is only allowed
one nominee on the ticket, it looks very
much as though a couple of these medi
cal gentlemen would be compelled to
stay at home.
J. M. Underwood is reported as hav
ing agreed not to be a candidate for

on the Republican county committee.
Sam Snider is said to have replaced
the head in his bar'l since the with
drawal of Fletcher and Clough from the

H. Hall is attending to his legal busi
ness has no bearing on this, however.
Sam L. Trussell is trying to find out
why the bosses have ruled him out of
the legislative race, and taken up Ed U.
Geesaman in his stead. Possibly it was
on account of the difference in the size
of their bar'ls.

The platform which candidates will
be asked to sign this fall, pledging
themselves to support certain reforms
advocated by organized labor, was yes
terday indorsed by* a meeting of inde
pendent workingmen held at 123 Nicol

city convention of the United Labor
party to adopt the platform with the
suggestion that the reforms therein ad
vocated can only be obtained by inde
pendent political action.
The three Minneapolis sections of the
Socialistic Labor party, in joint session,
yesterday concluded a discussion that
had occupied three successive Sunday
meetings. The discussion related to the
sending delegates to a proposed inde
pendent labor convention to be held at
St. Paul ofthe 28th inst. The meeting
almost unanimously decided by -vote
not to send delegates, and adopted a
letter to said convention stating the rea
sons for said action. This is said to be
a new and important departure of the
socialists in regard to political action
and likely to excite considerable public
interest in this city and elsewhere.

The heavy villian in the thrilling
society play would get pointers in sup
pressed enaction if he could hear A.
D. Smith pronounce the words: "Beast
Maben." Maben and Smith do not
mingle together to any remarkable ex
tent, and it all grows out of a little po
litical jealousy in the third precinct of
the fourth ward, where they both re
side. Maben publishes the Free Lance
and whacks away at Smith editorially;
Smith has no paper, so -he con
tents himself with beating Maben
every time he comes up for
delegate. This happened Friday night
ami Maben comes back with a three-'
column editorial in the Lance, in which
he charges Smith with ballot-box stuf
fing, miscounting, intimidation and
every other crime in the political calen

Cloutier and A. W. Lahiff come in inci
dentally for a roast, but the devoted
head of A. D. Smith .gets the bulk of
the storm. Smith read the editorial at
the Globe office and remarked: "Oh,

known as. Beast Maben ! Why, only
one ballot was doubled, and that was
thrown out at Mabcn's request. Oh,
the beast! 1 wish he was in the black

You see he's sore. That's all there is
to it. He got left, and. he's awful sore.

for the Maben ticket, and 183 for the
Cloutier ticket. The Lance says it was

LIVED SIX HOURS.
A Scandinavian Girl Gives Birth
to a Child in a Barn.
Saturday afternoon a family residing
at No. 2933 Harriet avenue, discovered
that a Scandinavian girl about eighteen
years old, employed as a domestic, had
given birth to a child in the barn. They
attempted to persuade her to come into
the house, but when she got as far as
the woodshed she refused to go any
further, so a mattress was brought out
and she was placed upon it
with her babe. Application was made
for the girl's admission to Bethany
home, and she was taken there in the
evening at out 6 o'clock. Upon the ar
rival at the home it was found that the
child was dead, and an examination re
vealed a contusion at the base of the
brain, producing cerebral hemorrhage
which caused death. The girl's story
was that in the barn the infant fell
from her arms and struck its
head on the floor. Deputy Coroners
Spring and Towers made an investiga
tion, and it is not likely that an inquest
will be held. The child was illegiti
mate, but the girl refuses to divulge the
name of its father. The physicians de
cided that it lived six hours.

GRADING BRYANT AVENUE.
The Eighth Ward Committee tin
earths Some New Facts.
The citizens' committee of the Eighth
ward has ascertained, it claims, since
the meeting of the ways and means
committee, some facts relative to the
grading of Bryant avenue. It charges
the work was done for the benefit of
the Motor company and submits a letter
from J. M. Bartlett, as follows:
1 have before me a statement of .'the
case of the line dated April 28, 1887, and
reading as follows:
Total length of line two and six-tenths
miles; amount of grading from Thirty
first street to corner of Humboltand
Forty-eighth street, 30,000 yards at 20
cents, $0,000; ties, iron spikes, track lay
etc., to amount to $21,954.72 for the
total cost of construction.
With the assistance of William S.
King I went to work to raise this
amount, and to procure the right of way,
both of which were accomplished, and
then Mr. Lowry did the balance of the
grading necessary. The iron would
have been laid and the agreement would
have been carried out, but for the fact
that as Mr. Lowry had entered into a
written contract with the subscribers to
the fund to operate the line by steam,
and the council in granting the fran
chise, .reserved the right to order off
steam, and order on horse or other
power, Mr. Lowry could not carry out
his part of the agreement with such a
reservation in the franchise.
I asked, when I found the big fill be
ing made, between Thirty-first and
Thirty-second streets on Bryant avenue,
by the city after we had agreed to do it,
why the money was not expended on
some other street, and was told the
party having the contract would not
give it up. The statement above re
ferred to as dated April 27, 1887, was
made by George W. Coolev, chief engi
neer of the M., L. & N. railway. *
Rev. Marion D. Shutter Preaches
an Eloquent Sermon.
Rev. Marion D. Shutter preached at
the First Unitarian church. Following
is a synopsis of the sermon : The lead
ers in the war for the Union are falling
one by one. A short time ago Grant and
Logan joined the invisible hosts. To-day
we mourn the death of Sheridan. It is
fitting that public commemoration
should be made. The services he ren
dered his country can never be forgot
ten. Sheridan was a born soldier.
Through the crack in that poor little
one-story frame house where his early
years were . passed • came visions
of glories to be won on the battle
field. At last came the opportunity
that put him in the way of his ambi
tion. He went to West Point, where he
was known as the "best natured, but
most belligerent cadet,"in the academy.
Indeed, it is said that his bump of cbm
batativeness was so strongly developed
that he never could make a hat stay on
his head properly. In battle he used
to carry his hat in his hand to prevent
its escaping. When excited, he would
wave it and thus help to cheer and in
spire his army.. Sheridan's hat was
equal to a banner or trumpet. His mili
tary career began in 1802, when he took
charge of a Michigan regiment. He dis
played signal bravery at Booneville,
Perryville, Mission Ridge and Stone
River, and rapidly rose to the rank of
major general. He gained a series of
brilliant victories in the Shenandoah
Valley, and at Five Forks fought
the battle which compelled Lee's
surrender. The career of Gen Sheri

dan is now a part of- his coun
try's history. Different from either, lie
stands in tlie same rank with Grant and
Sherman. Grant himself ranked Sheri
dan with Napoleon and Frederick. In
one thing he was pre-eminent, the power
of putting inspiration into an army. He
could not stand off and direct a fight
from without. He must plunge into it.
It seemed to his soldiers as if he were
everywhere. Every man seemed to feel
his presence, and was moved by that
feeling to do his utmost. He projected
his own courage into his soldiers, and
made them fight as he fought. But he
could plan as well as fight and inspire.
It is tribute enough to his genius that
the study of his campaigns, and espe
cially of his methods of handling cav
alry, has revolutionized the tactics of
German armies. Yon Moltkehas spoken
of Sheridan in terms almost as glowing
as those of Gen. Grant. While Sheri
dan was brave and wise, he was unsel
fish. His glory was the glory of win
ning victories for his country. There is
no stain upon his patriotism. He went
down to his grave bearing the title of
general of the army of the United
States— title worn before him 'only by
Sherman, Grant and Washington.
A TRIBUTE TO THE DEAD.
A Memorial to the Dead by Rev.
G. L. Morrill. BffSl
Rev. G. L. Morrill prefaced his ser
mon yesterday morning with the fol
lowing tribute to the late Gen. Phil
The Bible inculcates the loftiest
patriotism whether we read of the
warrior poet David, who preferred Jeru
salem above his chief joy, or listen to
Christ as he says, "Render unto Caesar
the things that are Cresar's," or think of
Paul as lie proudly rises and declares:
"I am a citizen of no mean city." It is
fitting this morning to pause* long
enough to place a forget-me-not upon
the new-made grave of one who with
Grant and Sherman moved a battlement
against treason and taught brothers it
was better to till the soil than stain it
with blood. Philip Henry Sheridan,
after many weeks of waiting, has at last
joined the; bivouac of the dead, but
lives iv a memory which will be cher
ished so long as the national heartbeats.
Alexander and Caesar left their impress
upon the countries and centuries in
which they lived. "Little Phil," from
the time he entered West Point until he
received his commission of general of
the United States army, stamped his
generation with a strength and simplic
ity of character which enrolls him among
earth's great and good. Grant
ranked him with the first soldiers
not only of our country, but of the
world; while from cradle to coffin,
though weighted with difficulties as
Si bad with the old man of the sea, in
the relation of citizen, husband, father
and friend, he was an illustration of
Disraeli's words: "Private life really
governs the world." His name ana
fame are recorded in song and stories,
while in American history he is revered
for influences which, like streams of
morning light, have blessed and bright
ened our land. He seems like a "War
rior taking his rest with his martial
cloak around him but the sword has
been exchanged for "That golden key
that opes the Palace of Eternity." May
the Great High Priest the Resurrection,
Jesus , shine into the dimmed eyes and
darkened heart of the bereaved wife
and children and reveal Himself to us
all as the One who comes from heaven
to our helpless, hopeless condition, to
show us by practice and precept how, as
Captain of our salvation, He could lead
us to victory.
THE COURAGE OP CHRIST.
Rev. J. H. Lhamon Tells of What
What is courage? Look on cowardice
and see its opposite. Cowardice brags
when danger is distant, runs when it
should stand, retreats when it should
advance, betrays the truth, puts up a
breastwork of lies for defense, leaves
honor to perish, courts popularity at the
expense of principle, seeks plausibility
at the sacrifice of rectitude, winks at
the evil it should abolish, compro
mises when it should prohibit. Cow
ardice retaliates, accepts challenges,
fights duels, keeps up standing armies,
dares not forgive, shrinks . from self
sacrifice, manufactures battle clubs, and
cultivates the warwhoop.
True courage is the opposite of all
this. It has a conscience; it seeks
peace; it is brave enough to forgive; it
chooses rather to suffer than to wound;
it is rigid in righteousness, betrays not
the truth, makes no compromise with
error, stands by its work in the world,
counts duty dearer than life, and at
tains its own high ideal or dies in the
We seek the highest form of courage.
Can Christ satisfy our search in this?
We admire the man who trembles not
when he faces a foe; we love the man
who hazards his life for a friend; we
reverence him who dies at the stake for
the truth that he holds but we adore
Him who, out of devotion to truth and
obedience to God, works the redemp
tion of man.
The life of Jesus had a plan. From
the first He looked forward and saw the
opposition of His foes, the discourage
ment of His friends, the betrayal, the
crucifiction and the resurrection. In
His pathway there were thorns and He
knew it, but walked bravely on. Be
fore Him there was mockery for His
teaching.cruelty for His love and curses
for His prayers; He knew it and went
forward to meet it all.
Small souls cannot well understand
the motives and purposes of great ones.
Why did Paul persist in preaching
Christ when he might have been a
proud and popular Pharisee? Why did
Luther oppose Rome when he might
have been an easy-going monk? Why
did Savonarola prefer a martyr's crown
to a cardinal's cap? What induced Huss,
and Jerome, and Latimer, and Ridley,
and Cranmer, and Banyan to preach
doctrines that were distasteful to their
respective ages till they got themselves
into prisons and flames? What impelled
Cary and Judson to go as missionaries,
and John Howard and Clara Barton to
visit the prisons and care for the sick?
What is it that makes a philanthropist,
or a moral hero, or a fearless prophet?
When you have understood the mo
tives of the martyrs, and philanthro
pists, and prophets of humanity; when
you know the spirit of love
and righteousness that will -not
let its possessor rest till
his work is done; when you realize the
impelling power of a great conscience
responding to the love of man and the
voice of God, then will you know what
makes a true hero, and why Jesus went
to Jerusalem. "Emerson says: "O
man, come into port grandly, or sail the
seas with God." Jesus says: "Follow
me." There is nothing better or braver
that we can do. You who are Christ's
go forth to your little work as Jesus did
to his great work. Have a plan to your
lives large enough to include both the
fairest weather and the foulest, but be
sure to come into port at last grandly,
having sailed the seas with Christ.

ROUSING SPEECHES. « ■ ,S
A. T. Ankeny Comments on the
A rousing meeting was held by the;
Third Ward club on Saturday evening.'.
S. A. March was in the chair. A. T.
Ankeny made the opening speech,
which was well received. He stated
that the general work of organizing;
Democratic societies in the state was
proceeding with good effect, and that
the work in Minnesota was entrusted by
the Baltimore convention to himself, Mr.
Haynes and J. W. Willis, of St. Paul. As f
Jefferson had first originated the clubs
in 1801, and had given us thereafter, a
Democratic reign of nearly fifty years. :
The result of their reinstatement now
would be to give us fifty years more.
He then reviewed the work of Presi
dent Cleveland, claiming that he was
engaged in a work only second to that
entrusted to Abraham Lincoln, and
that in this work no state was looked
upon with more interest than
the state of Minnesota. Mr. Ankeny,
then took up the platform presented by
the independent workingmen, and, in
most of its features, gave it a hearty in
dorsement. The eight-hour term had
been first incorporated in political
platform in the spring campaign of
Mayor Ames, in 1887, and that it more
than all things else, gave us that great
victory. He claimed it to bear upon its
face the stamp of nature, as being the
equal one-third division of time;
that it had been recognized by the
United States in a law twenty
years ago and now lately in
giving the men pay who had been de
frauded by contractors under it He
claimed it to be-tiie important question
now before us in our local public works,
and that it should be treated with

review of the acts of the late legislature
in destroying local self-government.
THE FIRE ENGINEERS.
Some of the Practical Subjects to
To-morrow morning the 300 delegates
to the national convention of fire en
gineers will begin to arrive. As has
been noted arrangements have been
made for their entertainment Thursday
and Friday at the conclusion of the
business session. It is expected that
the fixtures for the Nicollet avenue il
lumination will be in place by to-mor
row night, and it is intended that an
exhibition run similar to that of last
] year shall be given by the local fire de
partment. The topics assigned last
year, upon which papers have been pre
pared, are of a practical na
ture, among them being the
storage ot inflammable material. The
payment by insurance companies of a
2 per cent tax on their premiums for the
benefit of firemen who faithfully work
to save the property on which policies
are held: the propriety of compelling
cities and towns to supply themselves
with proper apparatus for extinguish
ing fires; the use and storage of crude
petroleum for fuel; spontaneous com
bustion; electric light wire dangers;
the advantages of hose wagons over
hose reels; the best hose; the fire alarm
telegraph natural gas, and the extent
to which a chief is justified in sending
aid to a community unprovided with
apparatus in time of fire. The question
of shorter hours for paid firemen will
also be discussed.
A CLEVER INVENTION.
A New Rowing Device and a Life-
Saving Machine. ;
One of the greatest attractions at the
Exposition this year will be two boats
with a new patent device called a
vibrating paddle. Ely Wright has
moved to this city for the express pur
pose of manufacturing and introducing
this invention. A factory will be built
in Minneapolis or St. Paul for the man
ufacture of all kinds of boats, to be pro
pelled by steam or hand, with this
new device attached. This device has
been thoroughly tested in the Mississippi
and meets Mr. Wright's most sanguine
expectations, both as to speed and ease
of propelling. Mr. Wright says he can 1
run a steamer double the speed of the
best craft on the water and with half
the power. Any lady or child can pro
pel the small boats with ease, giving a
healthful exercise to both the back and
chest, and a position of ease, grace and
comfort. A sculling machine, a life
saving and swimming machine will
be manufactured with the same
attachment, the latter can be
more easily adjusted than any
other ever invented, and making danger
of drowning a thing of the past. These
machines can be used by ladies as well
as gentlemen, any one having one on
making the effort to walk cannot sink.
Arrangements have been made with the
Minneapolis Wire Works company to
manufacture this device.

only point of interest remaining is the

Wilson wing will make no contest, and
in that event there will not be a ripple to

have decided to erase from their ticket

course because, if a candidate succeeded
in getting an indorsement from either

The Pence opera house was crowded
from "pit to dome" last night, and Fred

cess with his melodrama, "The Power
of Money." The audience was ex
tremely enthusiastic, and the sensa

"The Power of Money" is
an original melodrama, "dealing
with the machinations .of two
villains who are trying to get possession
of the fortune of Gen. Wordsley. A
train is wrecked and the general is fa
tally injured, but manages to secrete
the fortune. The motive of the play is
founded on the attempt to secure the
bonds and the subsequent triumph of
vice over virtue. A subplot, nicely de
veloped runs through the play, and the
comedy element is nicely drawn out
v The duel and leading roles of Stuart
Forsythe and John Forsytho were

I every time he made an entrance. The
play was evenly cast, Mr. Barbour play

appearing as Carruthers, Miss Rodgers"
donning male attire and appearing as
the general's son, and Mr. Scully play
ing the part of a policeman. The scenic
effects are unusually good, the views of

worthy. -The play will run until Thurs

An excellent play excellently per
formed was the impression carried away
from the People's theater by the hun
dreds who had packed the house to see
the first performance of the "Marble
Heart." The scenery, the acting and
: the play itself are all remarkably good.
The chief bit of scenery is the disclos
ing to view the group of three marble
statues, in the first or dream act. Dark
red curtains hung from a high arch
•until the act was half over, when
Diogenes pulled them aside showing
the white group in a softly lighted al
cove. The acting of Theo Hamilton in
the dream act was very effective, and
his make-up excellent. As Volages,
the witty editor in the play proper, Mr.
Hamilton proved his remarkable yer
satality, and performed the part ad
mirably. J. B. Brown, as Phidias and
Raphael, "acted well his part," and ful
filled . the demands of the climax
in the fourth act where Raphael is
driven partially insane. Miss Wellesly
was an acceptable Marco and Miss
Booth a good Clementine, and Miss
Knott did well as Thea and Marie.
Wallace Shaw made a pleasing Al
cibiades • and Edwin Ferry an accept
able Gorgias. One of the best charac
ters on the stage was Chataumargeaux
as presented by J. C. Callahan. Mr.
Callahan is rapidly winning fresh
laurels at the People's. J. E. Nelson's
DeCourcey was even and good. Miss
Strong's song in tlie second act
was received with applause. As a
whole the play was most creditably
mounted and performed, and will take
a place among the very best produc
tions at the People's. Marble Heart
will run all this week, with the first

An Enterprising Photographer.
The enterprising, instantaneous pho
tographer who bobs up at every public
gathering was ably represented at the
Sheridan obsequies Saturday afternoon.
When the procession reached Bridge
square an unkempt individual climbed
upon the platform with a camera which
he leveled at the gathering throng. He
waited until the soldiers had been
massed into nearly a solid col
umn, and had come to "parade rest."
The orators of the day were alighting
from their carriages at some little dis
tance, and there came a sort of a lull.
The photographer realized that his time
had come, and stood with his hand on
the cap. Suddenly he yelled, "Hi,
there, you fellow!" Instantly every
head went up, and every eye was
turned in his direction. A second ex
posure was all he wanted, and with a
grin, which meant "Thank you, gentle
men, now you can go on with the cere
monies," he replaced the cap, caught
up his three-legged Gatling gun and
disappeared from sight before the crowd
realized that it had been "took."

POINTS FOR THE GIRLS.
Good for Those Who Have Mothers
Toiling for Their Happiness and
Special to the Globe.
Fountain, Minn., Aug. 6.— lt is to
every farmer's young daughter that I
appeal indeed, to all the young ladies
ou the farm, or, for that matter, those
in town, city or village, wherever these
lines are read, I send this appeal:
Look carefully into the ways of
your mother, see how it fares
with her in all that pertains to her hap
pinesss and comfort. It may be you
have never giving a thought to this sub
ject in any manner or at any time, and
have always thought that it was her lot,
part and parcel of her life in this world.
Just ask yourself if you can take such a
course and be happy. Study her daily
life carefully, hour by. hour, as tne
hours go by, and, would
! YOU TAKE HER PEACE ?
Could you take it and be happy? Is
it the place you would wish to pass your
life in? Listen and note the tone of
voice which is addressed to this mother
of yours many, many times a day. And
would you like the same tone of voice
addressed to you? Would the words
addressed to her be the words you would
wish to hear from those who ought to
give you their love and most thoughtful
attention? Ask your own heart, in the
stillness of the night, if you are sure
your own life would be any happier
with the one who now wants
YOU TO GO WITH HIM ' «
up the hills of life and down the de
clining years that lie over on the slope,
which all must tread to the end of our
lives. A*! my young friend, the best
of all the friends you have, the mother
whose happiness you may often add to
by thoughtful words or deeds, is the
best of all your earthly friends, and can
' you say the unpleasant word to her?
Don't do it! Spare her the thought
that she had an . ungrateful
child. An unkind word from you
may come back to you , long after you
sent them like an ; arrow straight into
her heart to rankle . and fester forever
' more. Go gather the flowers of the
fields, and while you arrange them into
a bouquet and place them before i.. m
her kitchen, talk with her about them;
get plants for the windows and try to
interest her in them, and be sure you
are interested in all you do. You can
make that one room
A HEAVEN TO HER '.
if you will try to do it. Is the room
hot and sultry, uncomfortable and op
pressive? Remember that she lives
there all the years that come and go.
Let your hands and your heart be
active in trying to help her; if she pre
fers to do the kitchen work, do you not
forget that you can help her in other
ways. Ask her to give you work to do,
and if she sees that you really do wish
to help her, she will find the work for
you, and in her heart of hearts she will
pray for you such prayers as
ONLY A MOTHER
can send up to the throne of a gracious
God. She may give no sign to you, but
an the same it will be "bread upon the
waters," to come back to you long after
she has gone from earth, perhaps. My
young friends, as you are yet young,
with life before you, think of this
and see if you have not been slow to
see the error into which you
have unconsciously fallen in this
one respect, and set yourself diligently
to work and make all the amends pos
sible, always remembering that years of
cold neglect have had their effect on a
heart once as loving, touching and
bouyant as your own.
She went to what was to be a heaven
to her with your own father, and you
will do the same, with hopes in the
future, so did she. "As ye mete to
others, so shall it be meted unto you."
Mrs. Martha Crandall.
INGENIOUS AND SIMPLE..
A Pittsburg Boy's Mousetrap-
Getting the Victims In and
"Another mouse in the trap!" ex
claimed a Pittsburg grocer's boy in
great glee, as he rushed to the back part
of the store.
"Perhaps you would like to see my
son's mousetrap," said the proprietor to
a Dispatch reporter. "It's something
of a curiosity in its way."
And so it was. The trap was simply
a heavy iron basin, placed bottom up
ward on the floor. But there was a
mouse under it, and the boy. after cau
tiously moving the vessel a tew inches,
succeeded in grasping the little animal
by the tail, and at mice put an end to its
life by dashing its head against the side
of a box.
"Now. I'll show you how I set the
trap," said the boy as he picked up the
basin, under which was a thin piece of
shingle about a foot long and perhaps
an inch and a half wide. To one end of
the shingle a bit of cheese rind was at
tached by means of a string. Then the
pieces of wood was placed on its edge,
the iron vessel drawn over it and nicely
balanced, thus leaving an open space at
one side of the basin, while the baited
end was left nearly at the other side of
"You see how it works," said the gro
cer. "The mouse goes after the cheese,
and the instant he touches it down flops
the shingle and he is a prisoner. Then
the only difficulty is to get the mouse
out without getting your fingers bitten,
but a little practice makes that easy.
It's a cheap trap, but it works first
The Numbers Killed, Acres of
Grain Destroyed and Their Fut
Editor Lampherc, of the Moorhead
News, spent several days the past week
in the Perham grasshopper district, col
lecting data as to the operations of the
pest. He gives the number of acres of
grain destroyed in Perham township as
3.130; in Pine Lake, 420; total, 3,500.
"As to the future. The great con
cern in regard to the 'hoppers now is
whether they will deposit their eggs
this season or otherwise. On this point
there is a divided opinion. Many think
they will deposit their eggs, and' if they
do there are enough left to seed the
whole state. Each female lays twenty
six to twenty-eight eggs. They are
deposited just below the surface
of the ground, and it is said it is
done in the ploughed ,or loose ground
alone. The 'hoppers are now copulat
ing, and if they do not lay their eggs it
must be owing to some reason not now
perceptible. Prof. Lugger stated it as
his opinion some time ago that this was
the last year for the 'hoppers that a
parasite was at work upon them which
would end their existence. The para
site may be plainly seen on the 'hop
pers. They are a small red louse, which
fasten themselves under the wings of
the hopper, in number from four or five
to a dozen. The people about Perham
claim that the parasite doesn't seem to
hurt the 'hopper at all. Those which
have the largest number on them seem
to be as active and vigorous as those
devoid of them. Mr. Williams, before
mentioned, says the 'hoppers shed their
skins three times during their extstence*
and thus rid themselves of the parasites.
He claims that he has seen them this
season shedding their skins, during
which time they lie dormant and quiet.
That they shine after, the old skin peels
off. and they are then soft. After a day
or so they harden again and go to work
eating. The 'hoppers eat incessantly,
and their food passes through them like
a mill. They are insatiable. They have
jaws so strong and teeth so sharp and
rasping that they can eat the bark off of
trees, and do it, Killing the trees.
EGGS MAY BE DESTROYED.
In case the 'hoppers deposit their eggs
many of them may be destroyed by
plowing the land during the fall/which
will turn them under so deep that tlie
young 'hopper when he hatches in the
spring will be unable to work his way to
the surface. SS3S£s£ttaJS
It is estimated that the average num
ber of 'hoppers in a bushel, little and
great, through the season, is not less
than 7,000. If this number is correct
multiply it by 14,034, the number of
bushels caught, and we have an aggre
gate of 102,438,000 grasshoppers de
stroyed at Perham. Ido not know that
this is even approximately correct. I
intended to have a quart counted and
upon the number found base calcula
tions; but a shower of rain intervening
Another district, at Battle Lake, some
twenty-five miles south of Perham, is
also afflicted with the 'hopper plague,
though in a less destructive degree.
