GOT GO D CLAIMS.
Twin City Men Successful in the
Duluth Hush.
Some of the Minneapolis men who
were after land claims at the recent
opening of surveyed towns at the Du
luth land office have returned, and the
Minneapolis and St. Paul contingent
did not fare so shabbily as on the former
occasion. The township opened this
time was town 06, range 18, adjoining
07-18, opened on the 13th inst. On the
former occasion the southern contin
gent obtained but one single claim, but
this time the St. Paul and Minneapolis
claimants obtained fifteen or sixteen
good claims. Policeman Isaac Martin
is .aid to have secured a dandy, and
Edgar T. Bolins,' with "Van Dusen &
Co., also secured a very valuable one.
Joe Jahn also got a good one, and so did
Graham, the gasoline man. These
claims are taken under the homestead
act, and to secure final ownership re
quires an actual residence and cultiva
tion for five years, but th**y can be
commuted alter six months and title
obtained by purchase at $2.50 per acre.
Most of the boys are likely to commute,
ami there is believed to be no immediate
danger of closing their names lo the
city directory. „ . . -.v..
TOUCHED A PARMER.
Charles Ewell, of Lichfield, Re
lieved by Sneaks.
When Charles Ew-ell, of near Monte
video, stopped yesterday moaning to
view the circus parade at the corner of
Third street south and Nicollet avenue,
there was a silver watch attached to the
chain which he wore at his vest. After
the elephants and caliope had gone by
his chain was dangling aud the watch
was gone. The farmer at once retraced
his steps to where he last knew that the
chain did not dangle, looking carefully
along the walk for the time piece, but
in vain. When some of the bystanders
noted the search and were told that a
, watch was lost they suggested that Mr.
Ewell's idea that the watch had become
detached in the crowd was an erroneous
conclusion, ami. convinced the farmer
that the watch had been picked off
from his chain oy some light-lingered
chap. Mr. Ewell finally concluded that
it was not worth much, anyhow, with
whicii philosophical view of the situa
tion he sauntered towards the large
tent.
UNDER POLICE NOSES.
Heffelflnger's Shoe Store Broken
» Into by Burglars.
Heffelflnger's : down-town stores, 210
and 221 Nicollet avenue, were visited by
'burglars Saturday night and considera
ble property was taken. Although the
store is only about 100 feet from the po
lice station, the enterprising thieves
were unmolested. Entrance was effected
by prying open a window facing a side
alley leading from Lockup alley. This
alley is quite dark, but, like all others,
it is not provided with bars or iron shut
ters on account of the store being located
to near the police station.
l lie thieves ilia not secure a fortune,
but took everything valuable in sight
that was not too bulky, in money they
got $28, and out of the stock selected
gome nice shoes. The burglars are
supposed lo be a portion of the notori
ous "Boo" gang.
Prize fc«r Tea Testing.
The first prize in the tea-testing con
test at the retail grocers' picnic next
Wednesday has been offered by George
K. Newell & Co., and it is well worth
contesting for. 1 consists of a hand
some gold tneda in the form of a
wreathe of tea leaves of embossed gold,
the center containing a miniature tea
chest. The pendant is a reversable bar
of gold, on one side of which is the
lines: "The birth ot the greatest na
tion of all time was due to the three
penny tax on tea."
The obverse side has the following:
"This medal is offered as an incentive
to the acquisition of a more thorough
knowledge of teas, and is given as a re
ward for superior judgment demon
strated." ,
Done try bp Sharps.
John Hanson. and Victor Stremberg,
two young farm hands who have been
employed on J. J. Hill's farm, came to
town to take in the circus yesterday and
were robbed of ___,_. each by three card
monte sharps. They lodged complaint
at police headquarters. Telling their
story they stated that the capper who
first approached them said he was going
the same way. Tie took them to Cen
tral park, where two pals joined them.
The sharks compelled the men to bet
on certain cards, and after losing their
money, the latter were driven" away at
the point of revolvers. The laborers
are unable to talk English.

The Trouble in the Lutheran
Church Camp Comes tor
a Head.
Augsburg Seminary Officials
Bounced Out by the
United Church.
Flames From a Pipe or Cigar
Ignite Quite a Fire of
Barns.
General Notes and Comment
in the Flour City Yes
terday.
The fierce war among the factions of
the United -Lutheran church culmin
ated yesterday morning in a suit
brought by the United Norwegian Luth
eran Church of America against Augs
burg Seminary and others. The . com
plaint is a lengthy one, and cites the
allegation that the plaintiff owned a
publishing plant in the Tabernacle, and
published two weekly papers there
from. . A library was also in their pos
session, and, among other things, a safe,
in which the defendant owned a half
interest only. The complaint states
that on June 17 the Augsburg seminary
people came to the place mentioned
when Lars Swensen, the secretary, was
in charge, and forcibly thrusting him
lrom the front ot. the safe shut the door
and altered the combination, and aft
erwards dispossessed Swensen..
The co. nplaint alleges that the safe
contained £65.000 in notes and mort
gages. s? 10,000 iii accounts, $15,000 in ac
counts due from the congregation, and
6100 in cash, In the offices was a stocic
of books worth $20,000, and a printing
plant, plates, etc.. worth §95,000. The
court is asked to Issue an injunction
compelling the Augsburg people to give
uu the possession and not molest an
article in the place until they do so. The
rigiit to possession will afterwards be
fought out in the comity court".
Acting under an order, lrom the court,
the sheriff placed a man in.p.>s.>essioii of
the disputed property, and he will see
that nothing is taken away until the
quarrel is settled. The Augsburg peo
ple went to the court house and asked
that the deputy be taken away, but the
court's order stood. The matter will be
bitterly fought.
The surroundings' of the dormitory of
Augsburg seminary, in which is located
the offices and composing rooms of the
Augsburg Publishing company, wore an
air of suppressed excitement yesterday
morning, though all appeared peaceful,
in spite of the warm legal battle that
was* raging. A crowd was in the vicin
ity, but it consisted solely of the mem
bers of the board of trustees of the
United Lutheran church, and of the
standing committee appointed by the
church to look after its publications. A
half score of printers who are employed
iv the establishment completed the per
sonnel of the crowd.
Inside the building was a minion of
the trusteesof Augsburg seminary, who
stood guard over the building and would
allow no one to enter. Early in the fore
noon Seldon Bacon and a deputy sheriff
drove up and served on ilalvor Enge
nioen, the new treasurer of Augsburg
seminary, a restraining order signed by
Judge Kussell, in which he was forbid
den to interfere with the officers of the
United church in their business about
the rooms of the publishing department,
and especially in issuing two religious
papers, Kirkebladet and Bornebladet.
Mr. Eugemoeti was not at all put out
by the legal document. In fact, he was
not interfering at all."" The doors of the
building were of course locked. Sev
eral of the trusteesof the United church
had gathered since the trouble arose last
Saturday, and they conferred earnestly
but very decorously with Mr. Bacon
and the deputy sheriff. It was suggested
that the doors be forced, but as this
could not be legally clone it was frowned
down. The printers 'wanted to see
a little excitement, and were willing to
assist, but received no encouragement.
Among those who were gathered about
the building were lver Larson, presi
dent of the trustees of the United
church ; Halle Steensland, of Madison,
Wis., secretary; O. Ohnstad, Eau Claire,
and A. L. Hi m l e, trustee*, and llevs. A.
C. Anderson and Ostby, and Prof. E. G.
Larson, the last three being members of
the publishing committee of the church.
Finally the attorney, the deputy sheriff
and others drove away. It was report
ed that they had gone to the court to
secure a writ by which the watchman
could be ejected from the building.
Shortly after Prof. Ottedal, the leader
of the faction whicii now holds Augs
burg seminary and all its alleged appur
tenances, together with Attorney Kol
liner, drove up in a hack. They in
quired for the legal representative of
tne party that wanted to gain admit
tance into the building, and were sur
prised to learn that tbey had departed.
Treasurer Engemoen created, great
amusement by ordering off the grounds
all persons that werjj to him particu
larly objectionable. He put up a strong
"bluff" by taking down their names,
which were readily given. Among these
were Key. Anderson, A. L. Himle, O.
P. Blackstad, the bookkeeper, and his
assistant, Mr. Olson. On the arrival of
Attorney Koliiner, he demanded that
the parties whose names had been se
cured should be arrested. The attorney
said there was no doubt but that all
could be locked up as trespassers, but
thought it better not to take such steps
in view of the religious nature of the
war. The opposing side was greatly
amused at this, as both Engemoen and
Koliiner carried in their pockets copies
of the court's restraining order.
FLAMES FROM A PIPE
Demolish Barns Galore . in ; the
Eighth Ward.
Fire broke out in the rear of Judge :
Springer's house, 2026 Third avenue
south, last evening about 6 o'clock,
in a short space of time that and the
barn in the rear of 2023 Second avenue,
belonging to Mrs. J.K.Sidi,were burned
to the ground, three other barns in the
locality more or less injured, and the
two dwelling houses named considera
bly scorched. The whole loss is esti
mated at about {5,500, fully insured.
The flames were discovered in a shed
attached to the barn on the premises of
the old Menage house, now owned by
Judge Springer, about 0 o'clock. Some
time elapsed before an alarm was turned
in, and when the fire department
reached the place the shed and barn
were a mass of fire. The wind was
strong, the heat great and the flames
spread rapidly. When the firemen had
extinguished the conflagration, Judge
Springer's barn and the barn in the
rear of Mrs. J. K. Sidles premises
had been consumed, and the barns
belonging to J. T. llodgers, 2016
Third avenue, George Miles, 2028 Third
avenue, and E. G. liaruaby, 2021 Second
avenue south, were partly consumed.'
The roof of the old Menage building
was partially burned, and the rear of
Mrs. J. K. Sidles residence badly blis
tered. The horses were rescued.
The origin of the fire is not known.
Judge Springer's building is empty and
undergoing repairs. The workmen had
just finished their day's labor, and claim
they made uo use of the shed except to
mix paints. It is thought that the
flames may have been started by a cigar
or pipe. ; Boys are also" said to have
smoked cigarettes in the barn.

FIRST USE OF COAL.
Wood and Charcoal Were the
Fuels Whicii Preceded It.
Contemporary Review.
Though coal had been employed for
centuries in the manufacture of salt on
the shores of the coal fields, wood had
hitherto continued to be the fuel at the
inland salt works. The use of coal at
Nantwich is mentioned as a novelty in
1650. Drowich wood fuel and leaden
pans were in use up till 1891. In this
era the sea salt manufacture was in the
zenith of its prosperity.
But the substitution of coal for wood
in the inland salt trade, aided by tiie
discovery of rock salt, which took place
accidentally in the boring for coal in
Cheshire in 1070, led to the gradual de
cline and final extinction of the manu
facture of salt on the coast. The only
trace now remaining of this once flour
ishing industry exist in such names as
Howdon Pans on the Tyne, Preston
pans on the Forth, Saltcoats ill Ayrshire
and Saltpans in Arran and Kintyre, or
in the Scottish proverb, 'Carry salt to
Dvsart." synonymous with the English
'"Carry coal to Newcastle."
In no branch of the industry was the
scarcity of wood more keenly felt than
in the smelting of the metalliferous
ores. Continued efforts to accomplish
this with coal began immediately after
the accession of James 1., and were per
severed in throughout the seventeenth
century. But for a long period the new
fuel "proved ■ very intractable, and
scheme after scheme ended in failure
and disappointment.
After eighty years of oft-repeated
trials the tantalizing problem remained
unsolved. Wood and charcoal still held
the field in the smelting furnaces, and
all hope of ever seeing coal substituted
for them had well nigh died out. In
1080 Sir John Pettus, in his "Essays on
Words Metallick," concludes his ob
servations regarding sea coal and pit
coal with the remark:, "These are not
useful to metals."
The unpromising aspect, however,
soon began to brighten. Immediately
after the revival of lead and copper
mining, which took place about 1092.
these ores came to be smelted with coal.
The extraction of silver from lead with
coal was accomplished by a Mr. Lydal
in ..'.it. and the same individual appears
to have been the first to successfully
employ coal in the smelting of tin in
170... fl_P_B
The ores of iron proved more refract
ory, no substantial and permanent suc
cess in smelting them with coal being
obtained till near the middle of the
eighteenth century, when the manu
facture of charcoal iron had dwindled
to very small proportions; in fact, was
dying out for want of fuel.
"it then at length became an accom
plished fact at . Coalbrookdale Iron
works in Shropshire. The success was
at first ascribed to the Shropshire coal,
but probably the employment of a
strong blast had a great deal to do with
it. From this the coal became the life
of the iron manufacture.
A "GATORED" MULE.
Once Scared by a Saurian, the
Long-Eared Charger Never Re
covered.
Washington News.
"Did you ever hear of a 'gatored
mule?'" asked William Thompson, of
New York, who was on his way home,
after a year spent in Florida for his
health.
"A 'gatored mule,' as he is called in
Florida, is one of that stubborn race
which has been driven partially insane
from au alligator fright. In fact, while
a mule will stolidly wait to be thrown
off a railroad by a locomotive before he
moves, he goes into a wild state of terror
at a single^glimpse of a saurian mon
ster. •
"There are hundreds of 'gatored
■ mules' in Florida. To tell the truth. I
helped to 'gator' one myself. How did
it happen?
"Well, 1 had been staying at Ocala
some weeks, and finally agreed with
several friends to go hunting in the
South. About twenty miles from town
we located upon a small stream abound
ing in same. After pitching -camp 1
went for a walk, and before long found
a 'gator hole.' From the strong, n usty
odor which issued from it, I knew luac
the owner was at home.
"Calling my companions, I decided to
capture him. Wo rammed a long pole
into the burrow several times. Finally
we heard a snap like the report of a
gun, and the pole remained fast. The
'gator had seized it. We tried vainly to
pull him out. Then some one suggested
that we use our camp mule. We
shouted. The mule was led down to
the hole, a chain fastened to the pole,
and then the frightened animal was
started.
"There was a creaking of chains, a
roar, and the alligator, fully seven feet
in length, came ouVwith a rush, as the
mule started on a wild run for the road.
The saurian's teeth were sunken so
deeply into the wood that he could not
release himself, and away went mule,
pole and all. The alligator spun around,
hissing like a steam engine, but he helu
on, while the mule, thinking himself
pursued, snorted and ran. We followed,
into the main streets or Ocala flew the
mule and his queer load. Completely
exhausted, he was stopped by a party in
front of the postoffice. The 'gator was
dead. VVe skinned and stuffed him.
The mule recovered, but the sight of a
swamp now throws him into a perfect
frenzy of terror.

MATCHED PA FOR A DOLLAR
The Efficacy of Prayer Demon-
strated by a St. Louis Girl.
St. Louis Kepublic. /.' ' '"''.-__ '
;" S __J-L n 5 °f Ea^?l ; L*i ld religion,"
satu a prominent merchant who came
out of a big church yesterday, "my
folks have a sublime faith in the efficacy
of prayer. '^^-W^iSß,
. "One night last week my little girl,
who is about a dozen years old. re
minded me that she needed a pair of
hew shoes to make complete her
Easter Sunday costume. I was inter
ested in my newspaper and made some
badgering remarks about the duty of
children to wear brogans at one dollar a
pair, and gave her a dollar. She went
away without a word, a fact that sur
prised me, because 1. thought she would
protest. : But finally she came to me
and said: -.
. *• 'Papa, I'll match you for another
dollar— heads I win, tails you lose.' '.-'-.
; "This proposition nearly. knocked me
off my chair. I looked across the room
at her mother, a devout woman, from
whom 1 expected an emphatic lecture.
She, however, was paying no attention,
and so I said : 'Don't you know it's
wrong to gamble? Where on earth did
you hear of matching dollars?'
" 'Oh, I found out,' was her evasive
answer. 'Will you match me?'
"Well, you know me. 1 don't take
any bluffs like that, so lout with a
silver dollar and laid it on my knee.
The child was about to follow suit,
when she hesitated, drew away, and
then went to. her mother and said,
with much solemnity:
" 'Mamma, pray tor me. I must have
1 another dollar.' ;;'
Her mother only smiled in a depreca
tory way. Then she came back and
said:
" 'Now, papa, heads I win. talis you
lose.'
" 'And. dadburn it all. I did lose, sure
enough, and the child looked me iv
the face and said: . .
".'Now, papa, you see what prayer
will do.'"
A DOMESTIC TRAGEDY.
Two Noble-Hearted Girls Who
Faced the Horrors o _ a Murder.
Detroit. Free Press. . ' <
• They were sisters, these two, at the
moment in awful peril, and they were
alone in the house in their extremity.
"Here," said the elder one, handing
her sister a deadly-looking dirk, "is a
knife. Bethink you, you can use it?"
"I bethink me 1 can," replied the
younger girl, with chattering teeth, "but,
Oh, Celeste, there no way but this-"
She had read "Virginius."
"None; metliinksl hear him move."
"Open the cellar door cautiously. I
have oiled the hinges. I will stand
here and hold the light. Courage,
brave girl! Hist! I can hear him stir."
"Now, may the fates defend us,"
whispered the girl with the knife, "and
save me from a death ignoble. What
vital part shall i strike. Celeste?"
"Give it to him in the neck, sister.
But soft, is yonder light the jocund orb
of day. and has the night faded into
morrow?" tfwftjlWllSjWy
' "Nay, that is the electric light on the
comer which has just showed its hand.
Igo now to kill him. Yes, 1 have said
it/to k-k-kill him!"
The brave, heroic," beautiful girl
plunged down the stairs into the opaque
Be mi-darkness,and ina momenta terrific
shriek— Celeste at once recognized the

*'! "Are you bringing him up?" asked
the girl at the head of the cellar stairs
in a voice alike on both sides.

whisper.

selves into each, others' amis, while
shriek after shriek clove the purple

HE GOT THKIIK.
A Professor Who Wouldn't Miss
'! Prayer Because He was Not in
' Full Dress. ..,-,_... .
Portland Trhiiseript. ■-...- -.••'..
A good story; about Prof. Tucker,
: formerly of Bowdoin college, is told:
; ! About the year '01, when he was
"Tutor" Tucker at the institution, the
bell rang for prayers at the chapel, as
now, very early in the morning, and
it was imperative upon tutors andpupils
to respond.
As tutor Mr. Tucker was very popular,
although very strict, and he was always
prompt to take his place at the head
of his class at the early morning devo
tions.
- One morning, however, ..he found
his clothing gone and his door nailed,
while the bell was ringing.
Finding a hatchet, he soon split the
door down, and at the last Stroke of
the bell appeared, clothed in his shirt
anil a pair of overalls, barefooted, but
with a smile of aere.iity on his ex
pressive countenance. He ..took his
'customary place, and neither then nor
afterwards were words of complaint
heard from him.
Her Difficulty.
Land and Water.
An old lady traveling on the under
ground and finding that tne train was
approaching a station addressed herself
to a man who was stationed at the
farther corner of the compartment, her
only fellow passenger, and sa*id:
"Would you tell me, sir, what is
the next station!" jTOiBUWffI TK
"Bayswater. madam," was the
courteous reply. „;.::."
"Then would you mind, sir. when
we arrive, opening the door aud helping
me to get out?"
"With pleasure," was the coidial
assent. OP9BBSKBSPtt
"You see." the old lady went on to
explain, "I am well on iii years, and I
have to get out slowly and backward,
and when the porter sees me getting
out he shouts, "Look alive, ma'am!'
anil gaves me a push in from behind—
and I've been round the circle twice
already."

LAMENT OF THE REALIST. .
The light in the chamber was trying-
I Trying with all its might.
To pnt out the moon, which was dying—
I Dying of horror and fright. . ' ; - :_-. *' -,
At the wall of the novelist crying—
| Crying aloud in the night.
."Alack and alas for the buying—
Buying and selling cf art:
And "alack and alas for the sighing—
Sighing of love in the heart;
And alas for the realist lying— ■
Lying for bread in the mart.
"Must art in its freedom be fettered—
Fettered by customs of trade? * *'
Can truth in its beauty be bettered— £____.
Bettered by thickness of shade?" .
Must all tbat'is written be debtored—
1 Debtored to Mudie, or fate?
0 weep for the'novellst laden-
Laden with stories tabooed, .
Because of the cheek of the maiden-
Maiden who hopes to be wooed,-
And live in the Philistine Aiden— -
Aiden which shuts to the nude. ...
"O frissons d'amour!— but my crying-
Crying with no one to mark— '
1 must cease or the press will be guying—
' Guying my work for a lurk." . • -■• '
So he put out the light and went sighing—
Sighing to bed iv the da&k.

Great Honor Paid ,to Him by
Queen Anne.
Mrs. Oliphant in May Century.
Queen Anne was in her closet one
day at Windsor— a little turret chamber
with windows on every side looking
over the green and fertile valley of the
Thames, with all the trees in full sum
mer foliage, and the harvest beginning .
to be gathered in from the field— when
there was brought to her a scrap of
crumpled paper bearing upon it the
few hurried lines which told of the
"glorious victory ot the battle of
Blenheim. It had been ' torn * off in
haste from a memorandum book on the
held, and was scribbled over with an
inn reckoning on the other side. The
commotion it caused was not one of
unmixed joy; for, though th c queen
wrote her thanks and congr atulation. .
and there was a great thanksgiving
service at St. Paul's, which she attended
in state, the party in power did all that
in them lay to depreciate the impor
tance of the victory.
When, however, Marlborough ap
peared in England with his prisoners
and trophies— a marshal of France
among the former, and many standards
taken in the held— the popular senti
ment burst all bounds, and his recep
tion was enthusiastic The crown lands
Of Woodstock were bestowed upon him
as a flirt her reward, and the queen her
self commanded that a palace should!
be biii It upon the estate at the expense
of the crown, to be called Blenhein, in
commemoration of the extraordinary
victory.
A curious relic of ancient custom re
ligiously carried out to the present
day was involved in this noble gift.
The quit rent, which every holder of a
royal fief has to pay, was appointed to
be a banner, embroidered with three
fleur-de-lis, the arms then borne by
France, to be presented on every anni
versary of the battle. Not very long
ago the present writer accompanied a
French lady of distinction through
some part of Windsor castle, under
the guidance of an Important member
of the queen's household. When the
party came into the armory.on each side
of which, a vivid spot of color, hung
a little standard fresh in embroidery of
gold, the kind cicerone smiled, and
whispered aside, "We need not point
out these to her," One of them was
the Blenheim, the other the Waterloo
banner, both yearly acknowledgments,
after the old feudal fashion, for fiefs
held of the crown.
