at 1317 First street south, is locked up at
the South side police station on the charge
of assault. John Hokanson lies at the city
hospital fiXed with about sixty shot. This
is the result of a Christmas quarrel.
What the trouble was Is not known defi

the matter. All that is known is that Man

Hokanson. filling his back with shot. At
the city hospital the patient felt great pain,
but his wounds are not thought to be of a
serious nature. Manning was arrested by
Officers Kriekson and Powers. Hokanson is

HASTINGS, Minn., Dec. 25.— The
Christmas services at the various
churches today were very largely at
tended. The decorations were quite
elaborate and the music by the choirs
grand, iarticulaily at the Catholic and
Episcopal churches. The choirs of the
i Lurch of the Guardian Angel and St.
Boniface's church are difficult to be
surpassed, being among the finest in
the- Northwest, the former under the
leadership of Senator Albert Schaller,
and the latter Dr. H. G. Van Beeck.

GENEROSITY FOR THE POOR.
BOUNTIFUL DINNERS PROVIDED BY
THE VOLUNTEERS AND SAL
SERVICES AT THE CHURCHES
Impressive and Solemn, and Dec
oration* Most Elab
Christmas day in Minneapolis was a
merry one for everybody from the rich- i
i est to the poorest, no one needing to go
j without a Christmas dinner when at
so many places bountiful repasts were
| prepared for the deserving poor. Near
! ly 1,000 were given good Christmas din
ners by the American Volunteers at
their hall, 218 Nicollet avenue. Dinner
was served from 11 o'clock until 4
j o'clock in the afternoon, when the im
mense quantity of food which had been
donated by friends was exhausted. A
large number of baskets were also dis
i tributed to those, who, by reason of j
j illness or other cause, were unable to !
attend the dinner. Thirty young
women, being five each from the young
ptople's societies of six of the big
i churches, assisted the Volunteer in
i waiting upon the tables. The Volun
teers' battalion band, from Wisconsin,
was present and rendered music during
the feast. The band will have charge j
of the services to be held today.
There was food for anybody at the j
Salvation Army barracks in the old
Theater Comique. All the friendless
and homeless and poor in the city were
invited to take their Christmas dinner
here as the guests of the army. Lieut.
Col. Evans, who had charge of the ar
rangements, was surprised at the turn
out — it was not nearly as large as ex
pected. "You don't seem to have many
poor in your city," said the colonel,
"and I am glad of it." It was a sight
for a lifetime, however, to see about
three hundred men, women and chil
dren taking issues with the bountiful
supply of food. The manner in which
the good things vanished was a source
of joy. For each person there was a
liberal bill of fare, consisting of roast
beef and turkey or chicken, pork and
beans, coffee and bread and butter.
While dinner was in progress, Mr. El
lir, the blind evangelist, and his daugh
ter, aided by a corps of Volunteers,
sang the most stirring Salvation songs.
Staff Captain Mrs. Galley, who min
gled with the crowd incognito, con
tributed much to make the dinner a
Christmas day was observed at St.
Barnabas' hospital, and for the children ,
a tree was provided. A number of
handsome cards and other tokens were
provided for the little ones, while the
friends of the adults did not fall to re
member them. The children had an es
pecially joyous time, which they will ■
not soon forget. Many of the little !
ones followed the ancient custom of
hanging up their stockings for Santa
Claus to fill.
St. Mark's Episcopal church was
comfortably filled for the Christmas
service and holy communion. The
church was tastefully and prettily
decorated with greens and palms. The
sermon, an eloquent discourse upon
"Christ's Coming to the Twentieth Cen
tury," was preached by the rector of
the church, Rev. H. P. Nichols.
The Church of the Immaculate Con
ception was probably the scene of the
most elaborate of all the morning serv
ices. Archbishop Ireland was expected
to officiate at pontifical high mass and
extraordinary preparations had been
made to make It exceedingly Impres
sive. He was unable to appear and the
Rev. Joseph Le Garder took his place
as celebrant. He was assisted by the
Rev. John Meis, deacon, and the Rev.
John Ryan, subdeacon.
All of the Swedish Lutheran churches
in the city, likewise many of the others
of different denominations, were ablaze
with light at 4 o'clock a. m. A half
hour later the churches were filled and
at 5 o'clock when the services were to
begin there was not a vacant foot in
most of them. In a measure the early
service on Christmas morning, "julot
ta" as it is called, is the most import
ant one in the Swedish Lutheran cal
endar, at least it is the best attended.
In some of the Norwegian churches,
especially those affiliated with the Noi
wegian synod, the congregations gath
ered for worship at 6 o'clock a. m. All
of them conducted the customary
Christmas day exercises at 11:30. Rev.
H. J. Wick officiated at the Norwegian-
Danish Baptist church, Rev. M. Falk
Gjertsen at the Trinity church, Rev.
O. P. Vangsness at Our Savior's, and
Rev. G. Rasmussen at Bethlehem's.
Beautiful and impressive services
were held at Holy Trinity church.

SLUGGISHNESS OF THE CHINESE.
National Characteristic Illustrated
by the German Seizure of Seaport.
Nothing could better prove the utter
unlikeness of China to other nations,
or could come nearer to showing that
she- is not a nation at all, than the ease
with which a few hundred German
sailors have been able to seize one of
her most valuable harbors, says the
Philadelphia Ledger. Here is a mere
handful of men who have established
themselves on a land to which they
have no shadow of a claim, and with
only the shadow of a pretext for their
action. Close to them is a big town,
every one of whose inhabitants has a
deadly hatred of foreigners, even when
inoffensive, and within a few days'
march are millions and millions of men
who, under intelligent leadership, can
fight both desperately and effectively.
Yet the Germans have met with little
more resistance than they would have
encountered if they had tried to steal
the luncheons of half a dozen children
on their way to a country school. The
Chinese could shove them off into the
sea by mere force of numbers, and yet
the thought of attempting this does not
seem to have occurred to anybody in
all the whole so-called empire. In
stead, the Chinese are offering money,
concessions, anything, if toe insolent

strangers will only go away, and, in
anticipation of refusal, are negotiating
with other strangers, equally rapacious,
for assistance in accomplishing what
they might perform themselves in ten
minutes. This state of affairs is mys
terious only to those who think of
China as a country with a ruler and a
people. In reality, the Germans have
Invaded only the bit of land on which
they stand, and have insulted a few
officials at Pekin and a few peasants
on the coast. The rest of that vast
population will probably never hear of
this piratical act, and will not care par
ticularly about it if they do.
CALIFORNIA'S ORANGE CROP.
Enough Fruit to Be Sent East to
Fill Half of Broadway.
LOS ANGELES, Cal., Dec. 25.— The
shipment of this year's orange crop
from Southern California to the East
has already begun, and the prospects
now are that last year's output will
be almost doubled. The first shipment
was made nearly a month earlier than
last year, with fruit that was already
better colored and sweeter. The or
ange in Southern California is not
thoroughly ripe before January or
February, and the old resident of this
region is apt to think it not worth
eating before March, when it has
reached its deepest golden tint and its
juices are at the sweetest and most
luscious. But the Eastern consumer
is in a hurry for his oranges, and, if
he is willing to pay well for them
while they are green, the grower is
more than willing to get rid of them
as early as possible.
Last year 7,000 carloads of oranges
were shipped East from the groves
of Southern California, and this year
conservative estimates put the proba
ble shipments at 12,000 carloads, which
■would be about enough oranges to fill
Broadway for half its length chock
full of the golden globes. The freeze
that destroyed the groves of Florida
a few years ago gave the orange in
dustry in California a tremendous im
petus, and ever since it has been going
forward by leaps and bounds. But
even here, where the influence of the
Eastern storms is cut off by moun
tain ranges, the growers are in con
stant fear of frost through the entire
winter. A few years ago a decided
freeze well-nigh ruined the orange
crop in a wide belt some distance back
from the coast. The growers hushed
it up, and shipped their frozen fruit
away as fast as they could box it.
But they soon learned that frosts, like
chickens, come home to roost, and
their oranges got a bad name for a
year or two.
Great care Is taken now In selecting
the fruit for shipment with both or
anges and lemons. So rigorous are the
packers in their inspection and so high
is their standard of fruit fit for ship
ment that both lemon and orange
growers are constantly complaining
that there is no money in the business
The lemon industry Is also growing
very rapidly, and there will be shipped
this year about 2,000 carloads, against
1,000 last year.
HE ROBS HIS SISTER.
Charles llnssell, a Crook, Prey* on
His Own Family.
ARLINGTON, Mass., Dec. 25. —
Charles H. Russell, well known to the
police of the large cities of the East
and West as one of the cleverest crooks
out of Jail, is again at his old tricks;
but, business being dull, this time he
plies his trade on the members of his
own family. Russell comes from a
well known and highly respectable
family in aristocratic Arlington. Last
wcvek he called on his sister, Mrs.
Charles H. Doughty, saying he was on
his w r ay to New York, and thought he
would call to see how his relatives
were getting along. He stayed a short
time and left, ostensibly to go to New
York. He returned about 4 o'clock p.
m., and, finding his sister out, succeed
ed in having the servant girl let him in.
He did not wait for his sister's return,
but left in about half an hour, taking
all the jewelry he could find, Including
many diamonds, all to the value of $700.

W. H. Markie, of South Bethlehem,
Perm. The kite is a monster. If the
world has its equsfl, no one has ever
made the fact known. Imagine a kite
as big as a two-story house, capable
of raising high in the air an able
bodied man who tried to hold on to
the soaring flyer. The man who built
the great kite and raised It heaven
ward has written espesially for this
paper the description that follows:
Special Correspondence cf the Globe.
SOUTH BETHLEHEM, Pa., Dec. 23.
—When I began to build the- big kite
many of my townspeople told me that
it would never be raised. They refused
to be convinced that, to multiply by
bo many the size of a schoolboy's kite
and make it mathematically a copy
on a large scale of the kite that every
one has flown, does not destroy its
carrying powers. I had not set my
self the task of making a kite on new
fangled notions. All I wanted was a
kite built on ordinary lines, but on
such a mammoth scale that it would
be the biggest kite in the world. I
have succeeded beyond my expecta
tions. The kite is a wonder. The ac
companying photograph will give a
better idea of its size than the figures
that follow, although it conveys no
idea of the remarkable steadiness of
the monster when it sails aloft, and the
ease with which the unwieldy object
can be managed by one who under
stands its little peculiarities of tem
per. The immense surface of the kite
catches the wind as readily as the
sails of a racing yacht, and it rises I
In the air as gracefully as a bird, hold- I
Ing Its position In the strongest wind
more steadily, by reason of its great
weight, than does the ordinary sized
kite of the small boy.
I have made the kite and flown it
chiefly for my own amusement. The
question of the usefulness of the great
flyer I leave to men of a more scien
tific bent of mind than mine. I merely
give the facts and state what I have
found the great kite capable of doing.
If there can be evolved from this any
plan for utilizing the waste force of
the kite in some way that will be of
benefit to other people. I am sure I
shall be only too pleased to have been
instrumental in doing so.
To begin with the dimensions of the
kite. It is 25 feet high and 25 feet
wide, and is of the ordinary triangle
pattern. The sticks are made of white
pine, 5%x2 inches and are tapered from
the cross to IV£ inches at the ends.
At each corner of the cross there are
two Inch scr' w eyes. On these screw
eyes are tied the four corners of the
canvas sail, which is made of sail
drilling. The sail is sewed on the bias,
and along the edge of the canvas is
sewed a rope three-eights of an Inch
thick, with loops at the corners. These
loops are tied with separate rope In
the screw eyes on the frame, the frame
being bolted at the cross with an eye
bolt, making it easy to take the kite
to pieces, a very necessary thing, by
the way. with a kite as big as a house.
The center bands are made of rope
three-eights <>t an inch thick, with
heavy harness snaps, which are also (
hooked in the eye bolts, in the cross
and scrfw eyes in the corner?.
I used, when~l "made the first trial
of the kite, 2,600 feet of silver lake sash
cord, but found the strain too great,
and had to procure hiph^st grade of j
Manilla rope three-eighths of an Inch :
■'■ . i
thick. This rope stood the strain of a
high wind without a sign of breaking.
In a strong breeze the pull, according
to careful estimates, was from 400 to
600 pounds. I have at different times
attached a bar a few hundred feet fiom
the hitching point and allowed myself
to be pulled into the air to a height of
a hundred feet. This kite floats at an
angle of from fifty to eghty degree.-- an 1
my weight is 165 pounds. The weignt j
o" the kite, rigged, is seventy pounds.
It is a Very easy matter to raise the
kite. With the assistance of a few men ]
the sticks and canvas are put together,
and the flying rope securely hitched
about a tree, the Black in the rope be
ing nearly all taken in. The kite is
laid flat on the ground with the top to
wards the hitching point, and in a fair
breeze the monster is lifted up a little
so as to catch the breeze. It does this
very quickly, straightening up like a
thing of life and raising with the wind
as though anxious to be as obliging as
possible. In order to counteract any
tendency that the kite may have for
tilting sideways, guide ropes are hung
at the wings, and if necessary they can
be used to keep the kite straight while
it is raising from earth to the clouds.
I have never had any serious difficul
ty in flying the kite. At the first trial,
made in the presence of a vast crowd
of Bethlehemites, it rese and flew amid
a hurricane of cheers from the specta
tors who followed us to the suburbs of
the city where the trial was made. 1
had rot courted publicity, but the kite
ia too big to stay hidden, and the sight
of it in the air sets the whole country
side on a dead run for the scene of the
rising. —William H. Marble.
