WATCH CAREFULLY. Kii.urc Gives the Warning, and Every "Wise Man or Woman Must Respond When She Calls for Help. Watch well Hi- first symptoms of dyspepsia nnd indigestion. In these are the seeds of future trouble planted in the system. Disease and danger lurk in the vital or gans, the blor;d becomes vitiated, and the gen eral health is undermined whenever the stom ach and liver fall to perform their functions as Nature Intended. The evidences of disturbance in these or gans are always plain and unmistakable. A heaviness and lassitude seem to seize the brain, and to depress the bodily energy and spirit. All mental or physical effort becomes a torture, and if neglected, things go on from bad to worse until the health Is completely undermined or destroyed. Nor is it safe to resort to the harsh and griping cathartics. The best thing any man or woman can do at such times is to take a pure stimulant — not an ordinary one, but something that has been tested and tried, and is endorsed by the leading people of the land. Precisely such an article is Duffy's Pure Malt ."Whiskey. It has stood the test of time. It pos sesses medicinal qualities known to no other whiskey. It will tone up the stomach, relieve dyspepsia, and cure where other preparations only relieve. Be sure your druggist or grocer gives you the genuine. MINNESOTA VETS ARE CALLED. Annua!

The conditions governing the wheat market during the past week have contributed little In the shape of com fort to the bear element. There were some short sales in Chicago several days ago, when the price was ranging around 98% cents. There was prob ably some considerable profit-taking for long account, according to the re ports, but it is notable that long wheat ceased coming out after the price de clined two or three points. This prov ed that nobody was scared; and the closing upon Friday, at 97% cents, in anticipation of a double holiday af forded the best evidence that the bears were unwilling to take the risk of a bulge before Monday morning should come around. MuCh is said in the daily market dispatches about the "uncertainty" surrounding wheat at the present time. The fact is there has rarely been a time when so much certainty of a pe culiar kind existed, namely, that wheat is really scaroe, and that those who want it must pay well for it; and that is just what the gentlemen engaged in the business are doing. There was plenty of bear news, of a certain kind, all the week, but it had no effect what ever upon the price. Reports of con tracts for delivery of Argentina at European ports were current, but these were expected, and the effect has been thoroughly discounted ever since it was determined that the Southern hemi sphere would, in spite of floods and drouths, locusts and rust and other afflictions, really have a surplus for contribution to the bread-eaters of th« North. But, granting that this will prove to be as much as 40,000,000 bush els, considerable time must necessarily be consumed in delivery. Meanwhile consumption of the world's visible from the crop of 1897 is rapidly going on. Shippers are just now concerned over their ability to supply the demand dur ing the months which must necessarily pass before the new crop of the north ern hemisphere is harvested, to say rot iiing as to what the volume of that crop shall be. Wheat is known to be worth today every penny for which it sells in tho market* a condition which does not always exist. The high prices have assuredly had the effect of bring ing wheat from the hands of farmers and to an extent greater than realized by the mass of operators. That some remains to be marketed is true, but it is the judgment of the most experi enced men identified with the handling of grain that the amount forthcoming as the season advances will be found to be much less than is generally esti mated. It is unquestionably true, also, that Minnesota farmers, particularly, are just now engaged in cleaning up their granaries of the stock they withheld last autumn in anticipation of very high prices during the winter months. This is a factor which ought ordinarily to assist the "bears" and annoy the "bulls;" but so voracious is the trading world that these supplies are constant ly absorbed ln larger or smaller vol ume from day to day without causing any perceptible substantial decline un der the weight of offerings. The one surprising feature of the history of this latest crop market has been the per sistent increase of receipts at central points, over all expectations and above every estimate associated with the vol- IvEEPS HIS OWN COUNSEL. J. H. Rnssell, Arrested Saturday, Charged With Forgrery. The young man arrested under the name of J. H. Russell, on the charge of attempt ing to pass a forged check on Herman Thelde, a grocer at 1061 Payne avenue, Satur day afternoon, despite all efforts of the police to learn more about him, yesterday, main tained a stubborn silence as to essential in formation, though he has somewhat changed his original story. He now claims, the police say, he Is a stranger ln St. Paul, instead of having friends and relatives here, and says as long as he has gotten Into trouble he will simply bear the consequences with as little publicity as possible. He says he has been in the city a week, having come here from Chicago, but the authorities think he belongs in Min neapolis. Russell requested Information yesterday concerning tho meeting of the grand Jury and expressed a determination to waive a preliminary hearing in order to have his case settled as soon as possible. He will be arraigned in the municipal court today. 1898 Calendars Free. The C, M. & St. P. railway ha 3 just issued a beautiful and artistic calendar for free dis tribution.

The improvement in the grade is conspicuous, going to show the poorest was marketed first and the best retained, doubtless with the expectation of commanding for it highest prices. Under such conditions as those now prevailing all the heart must necessa rily be knocked out of the professional "bear." He cannot stand up and smile naturally in the face of so untoward a chain of circumstances. The bull clique has its hand on his throat, and when he sells short he takes uncommon long chances. It is absolutely certain that during a period of thirty years the stocks of wheat in the Northwest in the month of February were never so short as at the present time. Cash wheat is commanding a premium over futures in every market of the world. The supplies of other countries are remarkably small, and about two-thirds of this de ficiency is being made good by the United States. Our exports of wheat from July 1. 1897, to Jan. 31. 1898, ex ceed 152,000,000 bushels, the largest on record. In the same period of 1891-92 they were approximately 150,000,000 bushels, and in 1892-93 they amounted to about 121,000,000 bushels. On Feb. 1 the world visible was 152,000,000 bushels, while last year on the same date the volume was 173,000,000 bushels. The "bears" advance the theory that we have already over-exported to the amount of 15,000,000 bushels, but the combinations of figures supplied by sta tistics do not sustain it. Whether Mr. Leiter has sold some of his large holdings for export or not is of little consequence in the present sit uation. One thing remains evident, namely, that the world's shortage is extremely large, and cannot be over supplied out of last year's harvest, or that of Argentine and India just begin ning to be moved. The following figures show the change in the price of the May option during the past week at the points named: Feb. '12. Feb. 5. Minneapolis 94% 92% Chicago 97% 95 Duluth 95i._ 93V_ St. Louis 99 96 New York 98% 9GV. These show gains of lV_c at Minneap olis, 2 7/ «c Chicago, 2c Duluth, 3c St. Louis, 2^c New York. Referring to the crop of India, Consul General R. F. Patterson, writing to the state department from Calcutta, Jan. 4, says in part: In northern India, the prospects of. the w heat harvest are, on the whole, excellent, the area sown In the Punjab and North west provinces and Oudh being weil up to the average, 'while the crop is coming along under favorable conditions. In Sind, al-o, there is a prosper-t of a! large crop, the area sown having gre-atly exceeded the average. This I- not the e-ase wl'.h ! he other great wheat-g owing regions. In Borrbiy. B.rar, and the Central rrovine-es, the desire cf the people to secure the early replenishment of their exhausted suprlies if food grains, and the high price of wheat seed led to the ex tensive sowing of lands with mi le's wh'ch, in an ordinary season, would have been sown with wheat. Tho prospects of the crop In Bombay and Herar are also not partie-ular'y go )tl ; in the Central provinces, however, a fair crop may be expected. In the tracts which were affected by the fam ine (the Dee-e-an and Carnatic). the area under wheat is greatly below the average, jowar and other millets having been town instead. The area sown in the Punjab, the North west provinces, and Oudh. the large wheat producing provinces, is reported well up to the average and the prospects are favor able for a good crop, though the area sawn In other provinces Is below the average and tho prospects are not so favorable. With the large crop of rice and millets harvested, a large quantity of wheat will be released; and the quantity available for export, if the season continues favorable, will probably reach the average of the past ten years, from 12.000.0C0 to 14.000,000 cwts. (22.400.000 to H ..146, .67 bushels). The crop will bo harvested in February and ready for export in March. ORDER OF THE EASTERN STAR. Last Week Was a Busy One fop the Wo"n_en of Oriental Chap ters.

BOY'S HANDSBADLY TORN ADOLerH PETERSON IS TERRIBLY BITTEN BY A ST. BERNARD i Surgeons Hope to Save the Injured Members The Dog Han Been Quarantined, and a Close Patho logical. Study Will Be Made of It at Once. Adolph Peterson, a fourteen-year-old boy living at 661 Case street, was sav agely bitten by a St. Bernard dog Sat urday morning., The animal seized the boy's right hand in its jaws and liter ally gnawed the member from the wrist to the finger tips, badly lacerating the flesh and tearing the back of the hand open so as to expose the tendons. In a frantic effort to escape from the savage brnte, the boy struck the dog with his left hand, when the canine grabbed this hand in its mouth and sank Its teeth several times into the flesh. The boy received prompt medical at tention, and all of his wounds were cauterized, when he was removed to his home, suffering from a severe nervous shock in addition to his other injuries. The boy was attacked in the base- FIXES A UNIFORM SCALE STATE INSANE HOSPITAL BOARD CLASSIFIED THE SERVICE Susgestion Made in The Globe a Few Months Ago Is Acted Upon Favor ably at the MeetiiiK of the Hospi tal Manager* Total Pay- R.ll Is Reduced. The board of trustees of the state hospitals, at its meeting held in Roch ester this week, finally adopted a schedule of wages and classification e>f employes. Heretofore, as told in The Globe when the idea was first sug-. gested, there has not been so minute and uniform a scale at the three hos pitals, and while the new schedule does not reduce any salaries, it forms a systematic basis for them. Several positions and employes are done away with entirely, and the classification has the effect to slightly reduce the pay roll, at the same time requiring a greater efficiency for promotion or ad vancement. The increase of wages from the minimum to the maximum figures is based upon long service anel merit. The following is the new sched ule in brief: Superintendents from $1,500 to $2, "00. the present superintendents receiving the maxi mum figure. Assistant superintendents, $1,000 to $1,500. Assistant physicians. $fiot) to $1,200. Stewards. $1,20. to $1,700. Clinical clerks, men, $30 to $35 per month; women, $25 to $30. Druggists, $30 to $50 per month. Stenographer., $30 to $35. Ushers. $16 to $25. Outside watchmen. $20 to $30. Supervisors, men, $35 to $40; women, $30 to $35. Assistant supervisors, men, $30 to $25; women, $25 to $30. General head nurses, men, $35 to $40; women, $30 to $35. Assistant head nurses, men, $30 to $35; women, $25 to $30. Head nurses of flats, men, $25 to $30; women. $20 to $25. Nurse graduates, men, $23 to $30; women, $18 to $25. Pupil nurses, men, $18 to $23: women. $12 to $17. Probationers, men, $15; women, $10. All graduates of the training school are designated as "nurses;" those who have served the probationary time and have been accepted as members of the training school are "pupil nurs es;" those employed in the care of pa tients on the halla less than two months are designated as "probation ers." The schedule is a carefully compiled document and specifies the salaries of all employes of the institutions and designates their duties — cooks, bakers, laundrymen, engineers, firemen, car penters, plumbers, machinists, paint ers, masons, barbers, butchers, tail ors, shoemakers, farmers, store keep ers, gardeners, teamsters, bookkeepers, drivers, laborers, etc. In these no ma terial changes have been made from the former salaries. This schedule is now in effect, commencing Feb. 1. The work of compiling the schedule was of considerable magnitude and detail, and is evidence that the board of trustees considers the matter from the standpoint of practical business men. The board has in its jurisdic tion the expenditure of $500,000 annual ly, and has by far a greater amount of business, labor and financiering de pendent tipon 'it than the board of any other state institution. COLA TALKS OF THE PARSEES. 4 Bombay lecturer Occupied a Pnlpit . ln Minneapolis Yester day. A numtfer of St. Paul people went to Minneapolis yesterday morning to lis ten to a most 1 interesting yet unique discourse given in the First Unitarian church by Dr. Jehangier D. Cola, a Parsee from Bombay, who is visiting in that city. Dr. Cola took the place of the pastor of the church, and his talk was listen ed to by a large congregation. He took for his subject "Zoroaster and the Parsees." Tracing the rise and growth of Zo roastrianism in ancient Persia and its subsequent history during the for eign conquests of Persia by the Greeks, the Parthians and the Arabs, Mr. Cola said: Tho Zoroastrian connected his religion ; with all that was good and beautiful, and j not only in the higher realms of specula tion, but also in the ordinary affairs of daily ! lUe. Zoroastrianism teaches that tho deep- | est suffering comes from the individual— a I burden which is untransferable, and to .the j Parsee or Zoroastrian moral evil is the root j of all evil, and tho moral evil belonged to | individual man. He breathes in the pro- j found conception that the individual is only ; attaining his true freedom and full devel- ■ opment by being a member of an organized spciety, in which he takes his place as an integral part of an organic whole, by be ing pure in thought, speech and deeds. The Parse© place in the social order, his life and behavior, his duties and enjoyments, are regulated by this simple rule which he kijows from long past experiences of ages to lie at the root of all society, for man, as a social being, is the moral agent ln the struggle between Ormuzd and Ahriman, between principles of light and darkness, be tween life and death, between knowledge and ignorance. The Parsee knows full well that the acceptance of such an idea in volves a tremendous sense of personal re sponsibility. Our own definite purpose and responsible, activity gives us the religious character and lhakes us partakers of the religious life. The sense of obligation he believes heralds j the formation of moral character. ( The flrst step in genuine con version or regeneration is reached. The Parsee's aim ls to join this Inward righteous ness to the will of God or Ahura Mazda (meaning .Living Wisdom). He lives and breathes in this. It ceases to be a mere passing experience. It is a living, working attitude of the spul, controlling the activ ities and shaping the life. For, if there is good to be done, he must stand ready to do It. If there Is tr^ith to be learned, he must be ready to learn It; and the Parsee believes that God is responsive according as one meets his responsibilities to Him. It was in the conviction of sin that there was realized the Idea of responsibility. In the idea of responsibility it reached the be lief in freedom.' In the belief in freedom it reached the knowledge that there ex isted within the universe a power called will. In the recognition of that power It learned for the flrst time that there is a force which ls not material, but antecedent to matter and Independent of Its mutatlona — a force which mechanical combinations did not create, and which the dissolution ot mechanical combination need not de-. stroy. Finally from a vision of this indi vidual existence It reached the belief In personal immortality — an Immortality In which the Individual should at once ba preserved and sublimated, lifted from the dust of earth, and intensified by the life of heaven. It ls because Zoroastrianism Is the re- ment of Floan & Leveroos' clothing store, Seventh and Sibley streets. Mr. Leveroos had several days previously purchased the big St. Bernard to be sent to the Klondike, and kept the ani mal tied up in the cellar. The Peterson boy is employed at the clothing store, and is said to have frequently played with the huge brute eluring its imprisonment. The dog did not evidence a vicious disposition pre vious to attacking the lad, and is be lieved not to be afflicted with rabies or any other disease, but Dr. Price quar antined the brute, and will watch for any development of possible dangerous symptoms. No one about the store had any inti mation of young Peterson's danger until he was heard screaming wildly in the basement. By the time several em ployes had hurried to the cellar the boy had succeeded in getting away from the dog, and was leaning against the wall with both hands torn and bleed ing. Air. Leveroos at once took the boy to a physician. An examination of the wounds showed that the fierce brute had taken the entire right hand and part of the wrist into its strong jaws, as the marks of the molar teeth were plainly discernable. The dog had set its teeth on the hand several times, and the boy's effort to free himself badly tore the flesh. The left hand bore a number of teeth marks, but was less severely injured. hgion of struggle that it is the religion of morality and immorality. Conscience only begins where disturbance begins; here as elsewhere, it is the cloud that reveals the suushine. As :ong as my nature flows in a stream of uninterrupted good, one Is unconscious even of the stream. In order to be conscious one must be arrested In the flow. Something mutt intervene to break the uniformness of the rhythm of life. The beauty of virtue first asserts itself when I have tried to violate it. Zoroastrianism, said Mr. Cola, climbed further than all Aryan faiths because it struggle! more than all— aay because first among these faiths it experienced the cense of struggle. It was the child of m.ral conflict, and cut of its moral e-onfliet came its revelations of God. Thus from a "germ cell, there arose out conscience, a revelation of a:i things—fre2 --doi:; will, God. immortality. MALTA ORDER HAS A JUBILEE. This Is the SSOth Year of the Loiyal Knlßhts From the- Ltttle Isle. The ushering in of the year 1838 marks an important epoch in the his tory of the Order of Malta. Eight and one-half centuries of ran- vitality as Knights Hospitaler of St. John, of Je rusalem, Palestine, Cyprus, Rhodes and Malta, as warriors, monks, sailors, phi lanthropists in every country in Eu rope, and now in America. The order is established on this con tinent in twenty states, Canada and the District of Columbia, with a total membership of :H),000 and with an in crease each month. Seven granel commandories are at work, anej two more are ready to be instituted. One of the most active fields of growth and development is Pennsylvania, where 112 commanderies j are at work, with a membership of 15.000. It is proposed to make 1898 a jubilee i year and to advance the order into many new fields. The increase in membership during the past few years has been great, but efforts will be made for a greater increase. St. John's day, June 24, this year falls on Friday, and the supreme com mandery of the order has set apart June 25 as the day to be devoted to the B.oth anniversary of the order. The grand commander of Minnesota desires that all members of the order will observe the day, and suggests that it is not too soon for commanderies in this jurisdiction to make preparations and appoint committees for a proper observance of the anniversary. The committee who have the insti tution of Aladdin siesta in hand de sire the companions who intend to join to forward their names to the grand recorder. The institution will occur March 12 at Malta Temple. . . DIVINE CAM, FOR REFORM. Elder Scales Says Present Sunday Customs Provoke It. Elder D. E. Scale., tho Adventist evan gelist, spoke last night on the topic: "Who Changed the Sabbath?" He said, in part: "The Bible says 'the seventh day Is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God;" and, as we havo found that the 'first day' Is only men tioned eight times ln the entire Xew Testa ment, and in no instance is It called a sacred day, or devoted to a sacred use, there being only one religious service? recorded in the whole New Testament on that day, and j that on Saturday night fAcls xx., 6-11) it mus; I bo evident to all that we must look outside i of the Bible for the establishment of Sun- ! day, as a religious day. We find a prediction J in Dan. vii., 25, that is generally applied to the papacy, or Catholic power: "He shall think to change times and the law, (revised version). Wo must look to history and to the writings of this church to see if we aro correct In thus applying this prophecy. We find this power claimed by the Catholic church, and. far from being ashamed of it, they boast of it and flaunt it in the face of Protestants everywhere. Doctrinal Cate chism, p. 174, has the following: 'Have you any other way of proving that the church has power to instituto festivals of precept? Ans. Had she not such power • * • she could not have substituted the observance of Sunday, the first day of the week, for Saturday, the seventh day, a change for which there is no Scriptural authority.' " A large number of quotations were read from various works of authority from that church much to the same point. A series of editorial articles from Cardinal Gibbons' pa per, Tho Catholic Mirror, was read. They ap peared in September, 1893, under tho title, "The Christian Sabbath, the genuine offspring of the union of the Holy Spirit and the Catholic church, His spouse. The claim of Prot estants to any part therein proved to bo groundless, self-contradictory and suicidal." In 331 A. D., Constantine made his famous Sunday law— while still a pagan. In about 328 Sylvester, a bishop, gave tho imposing I title ."Lord's Day" to Sunday, preferring it to the heathen designation. At the council of Lao.dicea— 364— Sabbath-keeping was anathe matized, and at the council of Chalcedon ln 451 six hundred and thirty bishops decreed that Sunday was a holy day. "The sacred observance of Sunday," con tinued Mr. Scales, "stands first on custom and voluntary consecration of it to religious meetings; * * • after, from canons and de crees of councils, the decreetals of popes and ' orders of particular prelates, when the sole managing of ecclesiastical affairs was com mitted to them. It may do for Catholics to keep Sunday, but Protestants should go to the Bible alone for their doctrines, and not to a church they condemn. God is calling for a reform, and asks us to come back to the old paths of Ills word." The subject Tuesday night will be "The United States in the Light of Prophecy; or the Future of Our Government."

Dakota Grain Eipcrt Says 1898 Wheat Ix Ail Moved. K. J. Nordlick, a prominent crop expert from tho Dakotas, was in tbe city yesterday. He said: "I think the Northwestern crop has been pretty thoroughly cleaned up. Scarcely any unmarketed wheat is left in tho Dakotas, and the same condition prevails in Western Minnesota. Excepting tiie wheat which the farmers are saving for seed and for bread, thero is almost no unmarketed wheat in tho Dakotas. It will require 20 per cent of last year's crop to seed this spring. In Minne sota it will take about 18 per cent to sow the new croD. "Of course, in Minnesota there, is onsider able wheat which is unmarketed; there always is. But this ls not the No. 1 hard wheat, and those sections which supply this unsold product arc situated in Southern Minnesota, where the general prosperity of the country enables the people to hold their wheat. Just at present there is a strong probability that wheat will go higher on account of the pre vailing conditions. "The continued high pr.'co ct wheat has b.c-n conducive to large sales, and the past month especially thero has been much of the North western wheat moved. "The great trouble with tho statistics which are prepared on tho crop situation ls that much of the No. 1 northern and lower grades of wheat coming from states southwest of ua is included in the grand total with tho Min nesota wheat. This ls very wrong. Although thl>-_vheat, or much of it, is mixed with a high grade Minnesota wheat and ground ln Minneapolis, it has no right to bo classed as Minnesota wheat." NEW ENGLAND FEELS IT. Connecticut Complains of Minnesota Dairy Competition. Minnesota's recent rapid advances in dairy ing are having a depressing influence on tha Eastern producers. At the last meeting of the Connecticut State Dairj men's association, A. R. Wadsworth said: "In the Northwest we find creameries springing into existence as if by magic. In Minnesota at the rate of 300 per year, having now 658 to Connecticut's 58; 618,282 cows to Connecticut's 136,200; Wisconsin has 786,000; Illinois, 1,008.000; lowa, 1,190,534; Indiana, 618, --000. These five states havo more than one quarter of the 1C,137,586 cows in the United States, and more than one-quarter of the 4, --712 creameries. Here is already established tho dairy center of production. Th--' general ex cellence of their butter will make them dan gerous rivals for our markets. Nearly all tho surplus of tho Minnesota dairy board of trade finds its way into Eastern markets. Boston, Providence and Hartford being named as ship ping lioints. "'The cost of transportation is only one-half cent per pound. In refrigerator cars; time in transit three days. The cost of production varies from 8 to 14 cents per pound. "In the face of this strong competition the Eastern dairyman will have tho fresh butter market, if he can maintain the superiority and excellence of his productions, and further by a better understanding and consolidation of our interests prevent that disastrous competi tion which brings unstable prices that are of little benefit to consumers and carry losses and disaster to the capital and interests In volved. "The butter market for the last three years has been a failing one, touching the lowest point last July ever known for creamery but ter ln this state. How much more th 9 dairy man can stand in the diminution of his in come no one can say." NOT SHIPPED AS FURNITURE, Though This Burro Was Prcperly Billed and in a Crate. A dlmlnutlve-looklng animal, a sort of a cross between a Shetland pony and a burro, stood crated In the union depot yesterday waiting shipment. "Isn't It a pity," one woman said, "to take such a dear little thing to the Klondike" — besides he was too small to bo made to carry a pack saddle. He wasn't going to Klondike, but was simply transferred here from the St. Paul & Duluth train to the Minneapolis & St. Louis. He came from the Clover Crest farm and was consigned to Clarence Wedge, of Albert Lea. WAS DETAINED BY ACCIDENT. Miss Joflmnnsdottlr Disappointed Her Audience nl V»aeinM. H :: 1 1 .
