ROYAL BAKING POWDER CO.. NEW YORK. HIGH IE MAHER'S WILL. Hln First Wife Becomes Heir to His Property. The fight over the estate of the late Mark EL Maher in the probate court In Chicago has been practically set tled for the time by a decision of Judge Kohlsaat which establishes the claim of Jessie R. Maher as the widow of the decedent. Maher was well known to a number of the residents of St. Paul, having some years ago been lo cated here. He was known as "Hughie" Maher. and will be remem bered by several of the sportive young men of the city as being an expert whist and poker player. At the time that Joe Kray, or "Paper Collar Joe." as he was called, kept a saloon on East Third street, Maher. who was in terested in a stock clock game and other gambling interests, made the sa loon his headquarters. When he left Bt. Paul he was then owner of consid erable real property on Fourth street, near Robert. In the fall of 1895 Maher died suddenly at Hot Springs, and the woman who claimed to be his wife and was with him at the time, commenced proceedings to secure her share of the estate as his widow. Alzuma Maher, from whom he had been divorced, at once claimed that the divorce had been secured by irregular proceedings and filed a bill asking that the decree be set aside and that she be allowed to share in the estate. Elizabeth Ma her, who was with him at Hot Springs at the time of his death, claimed that she was his lawful widow. While this question was unsettled, Jessie R. Ma her, of Washington. D. C, came into court and declared that she was the ■widow of Maher under common law. The last of the three widows to appear on the scene was the woman who. dur ing the time Maher was in St. Paul, passed as his wife. Under her petition the case was heard, the other two al leged widows not being formally par ties to this proceeding. A number of witnesses from St. Paul went to Chi cago a few weeks ago to testify in the case, and Judge Kohlsaat has just handed down a decision ordering that Jessie R. Maher be paid the $500 she asked for from the estate. Attorneys who are interested in the matter claim that the decision of Judge Kohlsaat es tablishes Jessie R. Maher as the widow of "Hughie" Maher. The two other women claiming to be the lawful heirs will be shut out of any share in the estate, which is valued at $300,000, un less an appeal to a higher court should reverse the decision.

HOW THE YELLOW METAL IS SK>UGHT IN THE MINERAL STATES. WEALTH IN THE WESTERN PARTS. Montana Still Rich in Undeveloped Mines— Washington and the Rich Kootennl Country. Prospectors and miners are pioneers of civilization and progress in a min ing country. No class of men will en dure more, venture more, and work harder than the prospector. As a rule, however, the prospector is not a miner. j He is a discoverer, and after making ! a strike will watch it until he can I sell it, bond it or barter it away for ' whatever he can get, when necessity : compels him to go, or maybe he will I abandon it altogether, and start again on the search for something new and better. If the prospector has no means he will "grub stake" for the man who has | money. A person who is maintained ; during a trip or season by another on an agreement to give his creditor a share, usually half, of all he finds is being "grub staked." Every mining district contains prominent men, who worked in this way. Not a few rich men have been "grub staked." I The head of the Thomas Cruse Say- I Ings bank, Helena, Mont., was one of them. The stories told of Tommy Cruse would fill columns of this paper. Ex-Senator Taber, of Denver, another millionaire, toiled many a day over the mountains under a "grub stake" contract, which is usually a verbal agreement to divide half of the mine. A prospector's outfit generally consists of a pick, an ax, a pair of blankets, a ! small tent, a frying pan, a kettle, and a supply of bacon, beans, flour, molasses, coffee, canned goods and a gun of some sort. The size of the outfit depends upon distance, time and accessibility of the country to be worked. The goods are made up in a pack, and weigh often as much as seventy-five pounds. With this upon his back he begins his "tour." Some times he may be the fortunate possessor of a cayus.3 or mule to carry his belongings. It becomes a fascinating life, and, no matter what his discouragements or mishaps may be, he sticks at it in the hope and belief of striking it rich some time. The wild free life on the mountains is full of inspiration to even -the dull est mind. The mighty landscape charms the eye, and the wind singing through the pine trees is sweetest~mu sic to the ear. Not even the religious enthusiast will endure hardships and privations with greater patience than the true prospector. Like the genuine fisherman, he is eternally buoyed up with hopes that no amount of disap pointment could extinguish. Toiling up and down the long steeps, lured on by hopes of wealth, whets the appe tite, and nature's best drink is found in brooks trickling down from eternal snows. No drugs need to be taken to bring sleep to the weary, and a couple of blankets make a bed the prospector would not exchange for the silken couch of a palace. Bright stars shine above him. and he seems to be up near them. The air he breathes has no microbes nor malaria in It. He feels the strong pulsation of nature's I heart, and Is filled with energy and endurance. He tramps the pathless woods and climbs steep mountains with zeal and pleasure. Thousands of claims are taken up every year by prospectors, and no at tempt whatever is made at develop ment. Some do all that their means will allow and then a sale is made or an interest given to others for means to prove the value and permanency of the find. Every district is full of men who look forward to a fortune as soon as the railway comes or something else happens which they say is sure to come about. The value of a mine Is not always in the character of the ore, but more often in surrounding conditions. Accessibil ity is an Important consideration. It Is not an uncommon thing to find the low lying ore veins of low grade, while the veins at high elevation among mighty canyons, are richer. It would seem that nature designed that the richer the prize the harder to get It. It dees not follow that the low-grade ore is not valuable. If it exists in sufficient quantities, it may pay better or as well as the richer vein which requires a Ige expenditure of money to develop i handle. Men not familiar with ■ surroundings are often induced to ke investments or buy mines from ■ results of assays, which in them ves may be all right, but the stuff mot be mined and marketed with >flt without spending large sums In relopment work. PLACER MINING, gold exists in the sands of ers and creeks as it does in many parts of Montana, Idaho, Washington and Oregon, the work of getting it Is not as expensive as it -is to develop leads or veins by tunnels and sharts. The city of Helena, Mont., stands In Last Chance gulch, from which mill ions of dollars' worth of gold dust hag been taken, and it is still to be washed out of the dust and gravel In the bacti yards and creek bottoms. There was a great rush to Montana by young and adventurous men !n search of fortune as soon as Aider gulch, near Virginia City, was found in 1863. About $10,000,000 a year in gold nuggets and dust was taken from the gulch during the three years fol lowing its discovery- Equal yields are recorded for Last Chance gulch, and large returns were made from other gold-bearing districts. There are now thirty-four quartz mills and eighty eight reduction furnaces or smelters !n the state of Montana. The copper smelter at Great Falls Is one of the largest and finest in the world. It was gold which first attracted at tention to Montana, and among the substantial men of the state, many of whom are still living, were those who sought the yellow san-ds along the streams of that region when it was perfectly wild. Among these were: An gus McDonald, Granville Stuart, Thom as Adams. Reeee Anderson, Henry Thomas, A. S. Blake, P. W. McDow, A. M. Holter, S. T. Hauser and John Mul- Of the many marvels about the min eral wealth of Montana, perhaps tne greatest is the wonderful extent of the deposits. After this comes the divei sity of metals, which cover a large part of the known catalogue, and lastly, comes the fabulous richness of many of the veins and of the placer diggings. The mining industry of the state Is as yet in its infancy. Only a few of the great fields of precious metals have been fully explored. New copper mines are being found in and about Butte, that greatest developed oamp of any on the continent. The prospec tor has found many promising veins which are left untouched for the pres ent, because of a lack of capital, a want of transportation facilities, or othtr unfavorable conditions, and there THE SAINT PAUI, GI,OBEj SUNDAY, APRII, 18, 1897, is not a miner who does not believe that the greatest treasures of th* mountains are as a sealed book to bt cpened in years to come. For a year past miners have been at work in the Little Rockies, southeast of Chinook, Mont., with results most satisfactory, as evidenced by recent shipments of over $50,000 of free gold ore to Great Falls for treatment. Mines on two belts or mineral zones, have been opened up, the Gold Bug and Hawkeye, each series yielding rock bearing gold and silver, assays running as high as $40 a ton in gold. A new town named Landusky has been laid out and already contains twenty busi ness houses. Experienced men are of the opinion that the new mines will develop into one of the FINEST GOLD CAMPS in that state. The Little Rockies are the first mountains seen in Montana, and are in plain view from Great Northern trains, lying off south of the track. Three peaks or buttes are prominent land marks on the northern boundary of Montana, about 100 miles east of the main range of the Rockies. They are known as the Sweet Grass hills, so named on account of the excellent char acter of the grass in the surrounding valleys and slopes, which make that region a favorite of the stock grower. Placer gold and free milling quartz, as well as large copper deposits have been found, besides the finest ledges of marble known to any part of the West. The eastern slope of the Rockies, un til recently a part of the Blackfoot reservation, will soon be open to min eral explorations, and miners familiar with the territory predict that fine properties will be developed. Much interest has been aroused of late at gold discoveries on each side of the Kootenai river in the Flathead ! country, in Northwestern Montana. All j the numerous tributaries of the river show gold. At Fort Steele in British Columbia on the head waters of the ' Keotenai the placers have yielded sev ! eral million dollars worth of the prec | ious dust. The Fort Steele country is reached by stage from Kalispell, Mont., and during the season of navigation by steamer on' the Kootenai from Jennings. Last season three steamers were en gaged in carrying ore to the Great Northern. The trip from Jennings to Fort Steele is one of picturesque inter est, if not exciting. It" takes 36 hours to go up and 9 hours to return. Be | tween Kalispell and Fort Steele the J stage route crosses the valley of Elk ■ river in which the most MARVELOUS COAL DEPOSITS of America are located. Upwards of 150 feet of coal is exposed in the hills, in veins from six to thirty feet thick, one above the other. Petroleum is found floating on the springs in the same locality. In the valleys of the Yakt and Moyie streams coming in from the north to | the Kootenai in Montana, placer gold is j being gathered. Large deposits of free | milling quartz have been discovered, and a 10-stamp mill is at work on the Keystone mine, cleaning up a $3,500 gold brick every week. Two more mills will be put up this season, and a hydraulic plant will operate on a com pany placer claim of 160 acres. On Libby creek touth of the Kootenai, a mineral belt has been traced for thirty miles, and hundreds of claims has been made. The largest develop ment is on the Snowshoe group, where seventy men are at work. This prop erty belongs, to the Chicago & Montana company. A 150-ton concentrator is busy night and day on ore yielding gold, silver and lead. The Silver Cable mine, a mile from the Snowshoe, is a gold proposition with ore averaging $30 a ton. After the Snowshoe the Shaugh nessy Hill group- is next in development, and has just been bonded to an Eng lish syndicate. No enterprise at present seems to offer greater opportunities than gold, : silver and copper mining for the profit ! able investment of capital and labor, ] and no section of the continent affords ' better advantage to mining investors | or prospectors than the states of Mon j tana, Idaho and Washington and the Kootenai country. There is a home ' market for gold. The market may be glutted with everything else, but the yellow metal ! has ready sale. Every country will exchange its best products for gold. In the early days of mining attention ; was directed entirely to placers, and I quartz was passed unnoticed, on ao ! count of the labor and capital neces i sary to properly develop a mine, but now quartz is being worked with profit. While there has been no large hy draulic enterprises in the plans named, as in California, yet the future has j much in store. Many small streams i and gulches have not been prospected, | or have been hurriedly gone over, and there is little doubt that many large placer claims, which can be profita bly worked by hydraulic methods, are yet to be found. Nearly all the streams leading from the mountain ranges show traces and prospects. A small hydraulic has been at work on the Columbia river at Virginia City, near the mouth of the Okanogan, for some time past. The Okanogan country in Washing ton is FULL OF GOLD DEPOSITS, both quartz and placer. The Methow river district is the present center of activity, and stories of rich discover ies are constantly reported. The Squaw Creek country and the north end of Lake Chelan are making rec ords. The Columbia river gives gold in every pan of sand taken up. Hy draulics and flumes will in time help wrest the yellow dust and nuggets hidden away in the hills and mount ains of this region. At Wenatchee, Wash., a small stamp mill has been at work on free milling ore from a ledge hundreds of feet thick, which yields about $3 a ton. All through the eastern slopes of the Cascade mountains of Washington I this low grade ore exists, and the fut ure will find it worked to great profit. It is believed that the bottom of the Columbia river and tributaries is mar velously rich with gold washed from the vast beds of quartz in surround ing mountains, which have slowly disintegrated during the past centuries and found its way into the rivers, and, being heavy, went to the bottom. On the Okanogan river a boat equipped with powerful pumps has been at work for some time pumping up sand and washing out the gold with handsome results. A similar device has just been put on the Similkameen river. This de vice of a centrifugal dredger, planned and operated by Capt. Henry Finch, is placed on a craft that is self-pn> | pelllng, 100 feet over all, and a 20-foot beam, and fitted up with lodging quar ters. He expects to get it into full operation on his claims this season. Palmer mountain lies just south of Similkameen river, and is a mass of metal, consisting of quartz carrying Free gold, auriferous sulphides, usu ally pyrite. and galena. An attempt to enumerate the min eral sections and variety of minerals, metals, ores, etc., in the Pacific North west would be to run over the entire list. A list prepared at a Montana town shows 143 different minerals and metals in the country tributary to that place. BENEFIT FOR MISS COLLINS To Be Given at the Alhambra This Afternoon.

RELIES ON THE WORD AND HOKOR Of tbe Man for Whom tbe Favor Is Secured— No* Legal Grip on Him. An important decision affecting near ly all of the saloonkeepers and brew ers in the city was rendered by Judge Orr, in the municipal court, yesterday afternoon, when the case against Au gust Kroening, accused of selling liquor without a license, was dismiss ed. The case relates to the transfer ■ of saloon licenses, and as announced ! by Judge Orr, practically prohibits any such transfer and renders illegal , those made under conditions v/hich ob tained in the Kroening case. The scope of the decision is almost limitless, as the process employed in the case decid ed is that in general use among the brewers, who procure licenses for in dividual saloonkeepers and are repaid ; on the installment plan. The facts in the case as stipulated j before the cou t were as follows: That the above named defendant (August ; Kroening) was on the 14th day of January, j 1597, duly licensed by the city of St. Paul to i sell intoxicating liquors in said city, In the i front room, first floor, in the building known i and designated as No. 736 Edmund stret, in said city, for the period of one year, ending Dec. 31, 1897. That said license was duly delivered to said defendant and that thereafter the said defend ant duly delivered the same to Hanini Brew ing company, aiid assigned the same by writ ing upon the back thereof the following words: St. Paul, , 189—, for value received, hereby sells and assigns to all right to and interest in the within li cense, No. — , to sell intoxicating liquors. —August Kroening. That thereafter the said Hamm Brewing company duly filled in the said blanks left in I the said assignment on said license, bo that the same read: St. Paul, March 4, 1897— For value received I hereby sell and assign to Paul Grimm all my ; right to and interest in the within license, No. j 55, to sell intoxicating liquors. — August Koenlng. And said Hamm Brewing company deliv ered said license to said Paul Grimm on said 4th day of March, 1897. That thereafter said Paul Grimm filed said license in .the office of the city clerk of the : city of St. Paul, and the said license was thereupon transferred by said city clerk of the said city of St. Paul from said August Kroe ning to said Paul Grimm on the 12th day of March, 1897. That the said August Kroening does not re ceive any compensation from him or from any other person for the transfer of said license to said Paul Grimm. As soon as the transfer was made, as ! above stated, the matter was taken be | fore the city council, which body con firmed the transaction, and Grimm im- I mediately began doing business under its provisipns. Kroening, however, also continued his former saloon business at 736 Edmund street, and was short | ly after arrested on complaint of the i license inspector on the charge of sell | ing liquor without a license. As a de j fense, Kroening claimed that he stood ■ ready to pay the $20 a week agreed upon by him and the brewing' company when the license was taken out in his name, and that by virtue of this fact he could not be deprived of the privi leges under it. It made no difference, Kroening claimed, whether ot not he used the beer made by the brewer who had advanced the money for the license, as the privilege to sell liquor was granted to him personally by the common council, and not having been revoked by that body, was personal to , himself. In rendering the decision Judge Orr said: "The statute does not authorize the I transfer of a license and such a trans | fer, or ratification of its transfer or as < signment by the council would confer ! no power to sell liquor upon the trans feree. This being the case, no action having been taken by the council to ] annul or revoke the license granted to Kroening, his authority to sell liquor remains unimpaired. The sales made : by him, subsequent to the so-called ; transfer, were lawful, and such being '. the case it becomes necessary to order 1 the defendant's discharge." As there are nearly 200 saloon li censes issued annually in St. Paul un der the same conditions as in the case decided by Judge Orr, it is apparent that the decision is of more than ordi nary importance. It is the custom for the brewer to pay for the license for saloonkeepers in a lump with the un derstanding that the retail dealers will pay back the money at a stipulated rate per week. Likewise, as in the Kroening case, a part of the agree | ment is that the saloonkeeper shall i dispense only the products of the I brewer so procuring the license, or at j least only a certain proportion of other I makes of beer. Under the decision it will be seen that the brewers are to | a certain extent at the mercy of the ! saloonkeepers thus provided with licenses as they may or may not, as they see fit, sell a particular make of , beer or procure that of any brewer i whatever. With this construction of the decision it will involve the $200,000 loaned sa loonkeepers by the brewers, giving the latter no alternative in case of default of the weekly payment, or the failure to use a specified make of beer, other than to procure the annullment of the li cense in question. This only gives rise to a far more disagreeable contingency for the brewers, as, it is claimed, that, i should the council revoke a license, it ; will have no power to refund any part of the money advanced for the same, though the license may have been rendered void and not be in effect at | any time before it expires. In Kroening's case he refused to : handle the Hamm beer, contending that ; the contract which he had signed to | do so, was of no effect, as it was made ! operative only by a blank transfer, ! giving the brewer the power to trans ! fer the license to any other person, a ; power which it was claimed did not | even belong to the council itself. As he was perfectly willing to pay the weekly installments upon the license, Kroen ing claimed that the brewing company could not transfer the license to Grim son. DIVORCE COURT STORIES. Avgrust Busch Says He Cannot See His Child. August Busch, who is the defendant in a divorce suit in which Anna Busch is the plaintiff, appeared by attorney before Judge Lewis at special term yes terday, and made application for an order awarding^ him the custody of his two-year-old child. The child is at present in the posses sion of its mother to whom its custody was awarded by order of the district court last fall. The condition of that order was that the father should have the custody of the child from 9 a. m. every Saturday, until 5 p. m. the suc ceeding Sunday — a period of thirty-two hours a week. In his affidavit presented to the court yesterday, Mr. Busch says that Mrs. Buech has refused to obey the order of the court, and that upon several Saturdays in November, December, January, February and March last, he has been unable to gain possession of his child. He further alleges that the child prefers to remain with him and cries when it is returned to the home of its mother. Wilhelmina Drews was but a girl of seventeen when she married Fritz Drews twenty-three years ago. Now she wants a divorce from Fritz. In her complaint filed in the district court yesterday, Mrs. Drews says that her husband deserted her five years ago this coming May, and has never return ed to her since. Josephine D. Mlecoch, a young wife of twenty-two, wants the district court to grant her a divorce from Nicholas Mlecoch, who is but two years her senior. The youthful pair were united in the "leafy month of June," 1895, and they possess an infant daughter, Jose phine. In her complaint Mrs. Mlecoch alleges that drunkeness is her hus band's besetting sin. While sober he was a kind husband and father, but when under the influence of Intoxicants he called her vile names, flourished a revolver in her presence, accompanying that demonstration with dire threats, and hurled missiles at her while she was holding the baby. Police Jottings. Fran Buach, a laborer, living with his family at Seventh and Broadway streets, was sentenced to the workhouse for 30 days yester day on the charge of nonsupport, preferred by his wife. Busch has been under arrest before for the same offense but was each time dis charged upon a promise to provide for his family. L. B. Garlough, of West St. Paul, was In the police court yesterday. It is alleged that Garlough was lnterupted at State and Con cord streets in an endeavor to establish a flirtation with a bevy of femininity. The prisoner denied the charge and secured a con tinuance until Tuesday. William De Freehy and Matt Twohey, the two residents of tha Midway district arrested on the charge of selling liquor without a license, appeared in the municipal court yes terday without waiting for the service of warrants which they learned had been issued against them. A hearing in each case was set for April 27. Frank Brown and Frank Stumpsen, arrested In the Midway district several days ago on the charge of reckless driving, were fined $10 each before Judge Twohy In the police court yesterday. The accused are residents of Minneapolis and were arrested while driving furiously along University avenue. MORE EASTER MUSIC. Programmes Additional to Tlioae Published in Yestppilny's Globe.

TO SEIiIt IT OUTRAGE THAT IS THE SALVATION OF THE ULTTIuR MAKERS O£P Ml.\- AESOTA, SAYS THE BOARD OF TRADE IS THE CIRCL'iLAII LETTEiR IT IS SEXDIXO TO NORTHWESTERS FARMERS. STUDY OF EXPORT MARKETS Will Be Made a Special Feature of the Work of That De partment. The Minnesota Dairy Board of Trade, through its secretary, J. H. Beck, has Issued a circular to the creameries of Minnesota, lowa, Wisconsin and the Dakotas, In which they call attention to the fact that the board of trade has been organized and presents a list of the objects for which it waa formed. The circular la as follows: We take pleasure in announcing that at a convention of creamerymen and dealers especially called for that purpos« held in St. Paul, Friday, April 16, a Minnesota Dairy board of trade was organized, with officers as designated herein. The objects of the Minnesota Dairy Board of Trade are: 1. To bring the producers and buyers to gether, either by personal representation from the creameries, who are members of the board of trade, or through an agent who may be duly authorized to act for them, and who may accept or reject offers from buyers. By this means the buyer and seller deal di rect. 2. To establish a high and uniform quality of butter, and to enable the members of the board of trade to sell their product on track at their own station without the intervention of commission men, throwing around tho seller and buyer the protection afforded by a thorough and systematic business organiza tion. 3. To study the requirements of the Eng lish and other foreign markets, and to estab lish a direct export trade. The output of our factories now far exceed our home de- i mand, and this over-production tends in- j evitably toward lower prices. Great Britain ■ is a very large consumer of both butter and i cheese, and is now supplied largply by the | Netherlands and Australia. America can sup- i pfy this butter and cheese, and it will re- I lleve the home market of the surplus, and j tend toward firmer prices and better profit to the producers. Organized effort is neces sary to establish these trade relations. 4. To publls-h a weekly Dairy Reporter devoted to the dairy interests of the North west, giving to the creameries the latest and most reliable market reports and such other information a* will be of value to all in terested either in the production or sale of butter and cheese. That such a board of trade will be the means of benefiting the dairy Interests of the Northwest will hardly be disputed, and when once the creamery proprietors and managers become familiar with Its operations, and the saving afforded by dealing direct with the buyers, it will enlist their hearty co-opera tion and support. Minnesota is annually paying about half a million dollars in commissions to Eastern houses for marketing our product The seller is largely in the hands of the commisison men, to whom he consigns and the returns are not always satisfactory, nor wha.t the I market conditions warrant. The method of | sale on the board of trade will differ from the present method in this very Important respect. On the board of trade the butter is first sold and then shipped, whereas under the present method the butter is first shipped and then sold, and frequently the sale Is un satisfactory, but the butter has passed be yond the seller's control, and he must accept the returns made. The operation of the board te entirely in the seller's Interest and differs from other boards of trade in that the seller virtually makes the price. Any creamery a member of the board of trade can offer butter, either by a representative present in person, or by an agent who Is a member of the board. The buyers, who must also be members of the board, make their offers, and If these offers are not satisfactory, the seller simply with draws the buuer. All sales are at the seller's option. The provisions of the by-laws ar« that the butter shall be shipped on the next regular shipping day, after notice of sale bas Ttieen received. The prevailing impression that the butter must be shipped to St. Paul to be sold on the board is erroneous. The butter is sold upon the representation of the seller and is supplemented by the guarantee of the board of trade. Another Important feature of the board is the educational influence which such a body will exert. It is believed that our creameries will find it necessary to make some changes in the process of manufacture to improve the keeping qualities of butter to Insure us a permanent export market. This again is one of the many things that organization can fa cilitate. That attention is being directed along these lines Is shown by the recent ac tion of Secretary Wilson, head of the depart ment of agriculture, In purchasing for export samples of butter made in the leading dairy sections, to be sold in the English markets, with a view of obtaining criticisms from con sumers for the purpose o£ learning wherein the product is weak. Prom the intoraiation thus obtained the best methods for meeting the requirements of the foreign markets will be at hand. How valuable this experiment will prove, will depend upon the enterprisa of creameries themselves in taking advantage of the information acquires. The dairy inter ests of the Northwest should be among th« first to adapt their product to the foreign re quirements. The Minnesota dairy board of trade will take an active part In the develop ment of these improvements. To this end we earnestly solicit your hearty co-operation by becoming members. The rules, regulations and by-laws govern ing the board, together with any other in formation relative to membership, weekly sales, etc., can be had upon application to J. H. Beck, secretary, St. Paul. Very respect fully, MINNESOTA DAIRY BOARD OF TRADE By J. H. Beck, Secretary. —Henry Ames, President. THREE ROUTES To California. THE "SUNSET ROUTE."
