If Minnesota schools are not up with the times, then it is not because the authorities of the state and its various counties are not ever watchful for pos sible impro\ T ements. As far back as 1893 the cause of education in this state was so well equipped as to win its laurels at the world's fair in Chicago, and it has not taken any backward step since. Indeed, Superintendent of Public In struction Pendergast was yesterday in formed of another step forward which has been made by the trustees of one of the school districts, that at JLyie. Lyle Is a village of perhaps a thou sand population, just this side the state line in Mower county. It is a railroad town, built under the fostering care of the Chicago Great Western, on which it is a prominent junction point. But, familiar as it migrht have ultimately be come to the traveling public as a fea ture of periodical time cards, it was not content and sought new ways to bring its merit before a fickle and, too frequently, unappreciative world.

The demo cratic cyclone had razed several of its contemporaries to various levels, and the people of Lyle had no desire to serve as condiments for one of Boreas' in transitu lunches. They determined to outwit the cyclone, in fact. T9 build a cyclone cellar for each inhabitant would be too expensive, even for an ambitious community like that in ques tion, so it was determined that, if the dread cyclone should come, it should not be fattened on the youth and beauty of the town, but must satisfy its rav enous gluttony on the old and full grown residents. Accordingly, when the directors built a new school, which was opened at the beginning of the present school year, there was built near it a commodious, if not a distinctively picturesque cyclone cellar, and now the students in the public school of Lyle, instead of imagining once or twice a week when the ominous gong rings, that they are trying to get out of the building before the fire department gives them a wetting, form in line and march with the strictest military dis cipline to the cavernous recesses of the cyclone cellar. The bi-weekly visits, it is said, are a source of no little en joyment to the pupils, perhaps from the military spirit which anmrntes the marching; mayhap, from the dark interior of the cave, in which the pupils are relieved for a time from the closest scrutiny of the observant teacher. The success of the new institution at Lyle has created a flutter in the other towns of the Southern tier, and there are movements now in progress in Aus tria, Elmore, Albert Lea, Fairmont, Jackson, Luverne, Sleepy Eye, and many another prairie town looking- for the extension and continuance of tho Lyle plan. The Lyle idea has not as yet been the recipient of a formal expression by the state at large either of favor or disfavor, but the department of public instruction is inclined to grant that the exigencies of the citizens of Lyle are sufficient warrant for the innovation. It really makes no apparent difference whether the occasional marching-, so long as it is not in earnest, is away from a scorching but imaginary fire, or a devastating but equally fictitious hurricane.

CHICAGO, Oct. 16.— "The shipments of silver from the sub-treasury in Chi cago to country banks in the Central West has been, for the past four weeks greater than in the recollection of the employes. A half million dollars a week has been shipped on orders from banks, and, despite large shipments of new coins to the sub-treasury, the stock of silver in the vaults is $3,000,000, $1,000,000 less than the average amount carried. The ordinary demand for silver coin has averaged $30,000 a day, but during the past month or more the shipments have been as large as $125,000. As sistant Treasurer Phelps attributes the demand to the big wheat crop in the Western states, and the previous lack of siiver for the making of change.

Princess Tom, an Indian Woman, the Richest Individual in the Territorj-. Princess Tom, of Alaska, has just added another to her collection of hus fcands. She has six now, says the New York World. A year ago she only had five and was making an offer of 500 blankets for a husband that would suit her. Five hundred blankets, moreover, is about the standard market quotation for husbands with Princess Tom. She generally pays about that figure, for when she finds a husband that really suits her blankets are no object with BMB^BA™JWPAjjSAAa^I£ar : Afii£ alE^e* ' jSfijfcStaMfe-By .». • the princess. The only trouble is she la rather hard to suit. Princess Tom lives in Juneau, and If one of the Klondike g-oid-hunlers could manage to captivate her and win her over to the point of chasing out of doors the six large and able-bodied husbands she has amassed, he would find himself in possession of more gold than. in all human probability, he would ever see if he persisted in pushing on ever the Chilkoot pass. For Princess Tom is the richest woman in all Alaska. She is the Hetty Green of the far Northwest. She has the accumulating talents of a Gould combined with a far-seeing grasp of the science of not giving up anything which would not discredit a Russell Sage. She has been a rich woman now for years, her wealth is rapidly increasing every year, and if her black, restless, greedy little Indian eyes do not see a chance to make something out of the new boom the Klondike Eldorado has given to Alaska affairs, it will be be cause tdiere is nothing to make. It was all through an original gift of skill and tact and sound judgment m trade that Princess Tom got rich. She was a young Yakutat squaw when she began her brilliant career of dick ering. She is a full-blooded Indian woman, and her husband — that is, the husband who was the original nucleus of her now large collection of husbands — was likewise a full-blooded Indian. Princess Tom learned to trade, by ped dling the furs*this husband had taken. She very early found out her skill in this line of business. When her husband's supply of furs had been disposed of, she took the job of peddling those of other women's husbands. She did not overlook her own commissions in these transactions. Then she began buying furs on her own account and disposing of them at a wide margin of profit at the various trading posts. Thus she got a good collection of Alaska Indian wealth — copper kettles, Yakutat baskets and blankets — above all, blankets. They are, or were not long ago, practically the currency of the Alaska natives. An Indian's wealth was estimated by the number of blankets that he had. That is how Princess Tom came to fix the market price of a husband at 500 blankets. The Indians of our own plains used to, and do now, compute their wealth in the same way by their holdings in ponies. But Princess Tom was far too keen witted not to see that gold, the white man's token of wealth, was more far reaching in its power than blankets. So she set to work accumulating gold. Twenty-dollar gold pieces were the ar ticles she most coveted after that, and she coveted them to a purpose. It ir estimated that she has got together nearly $20,000 worth of them. She makes bracelets, bangle? and long clinking necklaces of them, and, when she is loaded down with these, the Klondike Argonaut who saw her would hardly feel the necessity of continuing his travels any further, if there ap peared a reasonable prospect of staking an exclusive claim to her. But Princess Tom is fully aware that history has afforded instances of the white man's actions not being wholly above suspicion when a question of gold was involved. She has shown herself very alert to all efforts made to detach her from her gold. She has secret hid ing places for it which have thus far baffled even the most experienced pros pectors who have, in an unostentatious way, explored for it. Besides, she never was known to spend a cent of it. Next to her collection of $20 gold pieces. Princess Tom's most valuable treasure is her large stock of sea otter skins. These skine have become quite rare, and good ones, rough dried, are worth from $100 to $3i"H> each. In one room of her comfortable house in Juaeau Princess Tom has stacks of cedar chests filled with these va'.uabie skins. There is no doubt she has over sf:ft of them, and &he is as eager in th*> pursuit of more as she ever was. Her keen busin-ees foresight tells her tbat the scarcer the skins become the higher the price they will br.ng in the market, hence she is no hurry whatever to part with any of her stock. In the beautiful Yakutat Indian baskets Princess Tom has another large treasure. These baskets are woven of grasses and of willow, wood, split into long, silky strips, and in some of them these strips are so com pactly intertwined that the baskets will hold water. They are much prized and are of great vahie. Pr.ncess Tom owns hundreds of them of all shapes, sizes and dimensions. And besides all these treasurers this astute old Indian woman owns a schooner, two or three sloops and no end o€ kyaks, or skin boats, which the Alaskan Indian prizes so highly and in which he does such marveliotie feats on the water. The princess is 85 years old now. a heavy faced, fat woman, with nothing to tell of he* extraordinary ab lity save her eyes, wiitch are marvellously keen aad alert, aad not without a smouldering gleam of fun in them, moreover.

The fame of the princes hag of course spread far beyond the "boundaries of Alaska. She even enjoys the millionaire's luxurjr of receiving begging letters. They come to her by the basketful by every steamer. She has an interpreter who reads them to her— that is, portions of them. She only likes the intro ductions, for they always begin by telling her what a fine princess she is; one of natures noblewomen, as beautiful as she is gener ous, and so forth. TMs the princess likes.

Special to the Globe. LONDON, Oct. 16. — Here is an un usually interesting budget of news for .American readers. Visitors from the United States this season have found a Dew curiosity in a highly respectable looking private house with a Queen Anne doorway, at No. 19 Chapel street. It is the Church of Humanity, and it looks as little like a church as that John street place of worship I remem ber in New Tork. On entering the building, one is at once struck with its similarity, and yet its dissimilarity, to a church interior. At the east end, mounted on three steps, is an altar draped in crimson "velvet and edged with gold lace. The organ is a small one-manual affair, and the lectern and pulpit are of carv ed oak draped with crimson velvet palls. The church is seated with chairs. This religious institution was found ed by Auguste Comte. Its creed, he de clared, was: "That which distinguishes modern from ancient ideas is the con ception of development. It does not enter into eighteenth century thought. It permeates and governs that of the nineteenth. The founder of this church saw, as none had ever seen before "EUREKA, we have found it!"

The founder believes that worship should be placed upon the footing of common sense, and institut ! Ed, not constituted, the religion of hu manity.'' This church is the beginning and end cf Comte's great scheme for the con version of the world, and yet a large congregation follows the teachings of the founder every Sunday. It has been developed that one of the most regular articles of export, though it finds no place among the customs figures, is human flesh. The slave trade between Pakhoi and Hong- Kong — the latter in large measure, 1 believe, as a point of transhipment for Canton — has long been such as to scan dalize the Chinese prefectural authori ties. The numerous kidnappers who mainly supply it are generally well known, but no sort of measures are taken against them, which is not sur prising in view of the fact that hardly a single petty official takes a steamer | passage for Canton without including among his belongings a set of small girls, who seem to fetch much higher prices there than here. The developments of the "penny-in- Ihe-plot" system have been many and diverse, i.m none have appealed to ciuite so nractical a demand as one e-hnwn recently to an invited company at the Crystal palace, which, if realiz ing one quarter even of the claims put firth .jn its behalf, will effect little short of a revolution in worki-ng-class domestic economy. In th€ fewest pos sible words, the problem has been worked out of utilizing the heat gen erated by the ordinary gas lamp of the streets for the purpose ■ f warming water to the bofling point, and an in fluential syndicate has been foi'med to turn to useful account a discovery of so many possibilities. Calculations show that a sum of a quarter of a million sterling is expended annually on the gas illumination of the London streets, and it is urged that if the heat of only one-tenth of the lamps i« u«e were turned to account, no tess< than one hundred and twenty -millions of ga-llons of boiling water could be made available at a commercial profit at a cfrtsr of a halfpenny a gallon to the public. The idea, it should be explained, has been carried far beyond the merely theoretical stage. Fer the past four months there has bten in full working order at the Crystal Palace an exact model of an ordinary "street refuge" lamp of six gas jfets, which has sup plied as much as 125 salons of boiling 1 •rater to the stall-holders and frugal ejrcursiofiists glad :o be able to make their own tea.

The late Baron Hirsch, who spent his wealth on a lavish scale for the benefit of his persecuted com patriots, was most anxious that, the sufferers should be got out of Russia as quickly as possible, and with that object in clew a large number of Jewish families were con veyed to the Argentine colonies. In the course of time it was discovered, as was only natural, that some of the colonists found it difficult to adapt themselves to their new surroundings; and moreover, great trouble was caused by swarms of locusts which came time after time and devoured the crops. "In the light of experience it was decided, as was shown by the report of thp council of administration, a translation of which was published in the Jewish Chronicle, not to send any more families to Argentina until the existence of the colonies is assured and consolidated. Meanwhile, the association has interested itself in the Instruction of the young in the Jewish agricultural colonies which exist In Russia, and further, as the report states. It has entered a number or young Russian .lews in the agricultural schools at Jaffa and Djedeida, founded by the Alliance Israelite Vnlverselle. A good agri cultural education will be of great value to these young men." <HAXGE OF TIME AND NEW TRAIN To Northern WiNrunnln and Anh land.

COLUMBUS, 0., Oct. 16.— Columbus, imitating Philadelphia, has proscribed "L.es Miserables" Victor Hugo's mas terpiece. Librarian Hansel said today that hereafter the work would be hand ed out only to persons of mature acre. While he does not consider it improper, a« too Intensely realistic, he thinks its character justifies the precaution. E, O. Randall, a trustee of the library, shares Hensel's views, and believes that the work ought only to be Issued to persons of mature intellect. Dr. Wash ington Gladden, of First Congregational church, was much surprised to hear that "Les Miserables" had been exclud ed from the circulation.
