Tha editor and his brother, B. "W. Mus

Utah light artillery. Naturally enough,"
when the crisis came they wanted still
to be counted as Eoldiers of glory, and
bo, disregarding their business interests,
they attached themselves to Utah's hell
and damnation guns and went to the
front. They may not have rendered much
urn lUance, but they had tha satisfaction
of doing what they could. They lugged
at three-inch guns with all the energy
they possessed, and learned what it Is to
have Mausers sins about their heads.
A later issue of the same paper has a
few words of well deserved praiso for the
Thirteenth Minnesota regiment, and in
the following: manner pours oil on the
wounded feelings of the boys who had to
■tay In town and do guard duty while the
rest of the Eighth corps were fighting at
the front:
We have contended from the outset
that the Thirteenth Minnesota regiment
is as much responsible for the victories
of the Eighth army corps as any other
one regiment In the field. To the lot of
those men who make uv thla regiment
has fallen the task of protecting the non
combatants here In the city; while to the
shallow brained It may not seem that
thsir Dost Is as dangerous and that con
sequently their chances of achieving glo
ry are not so great as would be had they
bean sent to tha front and some other
organization been given the work of
guarding Manila, on the contrary, their
post is not only a dangerous one; It is one
that requires a great deal of intelligent
courage to successfully hold, and la sec
ond ta none in Importance. Recent d«-
velopments have demonstrated how im
portant a post theirs is, and had they
not remained true to the responsibilities
devolving upon them, these quiet streets
would have era this been the scene of
most bloody and terrible work, in which
the weak and defenseless would have
been the main sufferers.
Many of our Minnesota friends, being
imbued with that spirit of bravery and
love of country that- has charcterlzed
the American soldier from the start, have
lost sight of their own responsible work
here in the city and have gone, and in
a number of cases without- leave, to the
front to lend a helping hand there. This,
of course, was a mistake, but one that
reflects a great deal of or edit and no
dishonor upon them. It is no light thing
for a soldior of Old GHory to 'remain in
the city, where, on the surface, everything
seems quiet, and hear the rattle of rifles
and the boom of guns fri the distance,
and know that brave comrades are fight
ir» and dying In the same cause he rep
resents; and, as we said before, It re
quires a cool headed, intelligent courage;
such as the Minr.esota.ns possess, ' to suc
cesfully could hold such a post.
In tho news columns of the same issue
Is found the following item regarding the
bravery of one of the Company D boys,
that speaks well for the commanding
powers of a private:
"The Fillpine campaign has been prov
"The Filipino campaign has been provo
of pluck and heroism, but few persons
have" been surprised more than Private
Jack Price, of Company D, Thirteenth
Minnesota, was on Saturday last. Whilst
patrolling along in Asuncion street, Bi
nondo, he jUBt took a look into an ap
parently deserted house. To his amaze
ment he there discovered ho less than
flfty-flve Filipinos holding a solemn con
"It was^-a regular startler, but Jack Price
was equal to the emergency. "Fall In and
come with me," he yelled in his choicest
Spanish. And, strajige to "relate, they
did. Haying gathered them all together
he proceeded to march them "off ' in pairs.
Along the road the strange procession
passed, but as It went along to durance
vile It commenced to struggle somewhat.
Bo all the gallant private could do was
to quicken the pace of the rearmost, and,
thus presed on, the whole fifty-nine went
along like a flock of sheep until they
were safely placed where they could ma
chinate whatever schemes they pleased
without much chance of their ever being
put into execution. Bravo Jack Price:
Your regiment and the Eighth army
corps have reason to be'proua of you."
Another brave deed that Is recorded by
"Freedom" is the following story of how
a Tennessee volunteer got even for a
wounded arm, and only serves to show
the Rtutf of which our volunteer soldiers
In the Philippines are made of:
"One of the Tennessee boys was wound
ed the other day, and taken to division
headquarters, No. 2 hospital, where it
was found his arm was quite seriously af
fected. The wounded member'- was care
fully dressed and placed in a plaster of
Paris bandage, and the patient from the
moonshine country was ordered to bed
and told to remain quiet. Yes, he re
mained quiet. He scarcely moved for
ten minutes. And then he reached for
his rifle and with a 'By G— _- I'm going to
get satisfaction,' he started out and has
been doing a soldier's duty ever since."
"Freedom" is also compelled to call the
boys down once in a while for their hilar
ity while off duty, and th« following tdi-
torial taken from the Issue of March 2,
tells a whole story In Itself:
"In war times like the present every
body expects to be more or less discom
moded, and patriotically inclined people
consider themselves fortunate when the
opportunity presents itself for them to
help in some way the common cause. As
we write' we have in mind an American
citizen who is a popular attorney here
In Manila who provided his coachman
the other day with a note to this effect:
" 'To whom it may concern: If it Is
found necessary to use this, niy prlvato
carriage, for military purposes, please
give the coachman a receipt for the
same. Respectfully, — R S- — .' i
"A few days afterwards while his car
riage was standing in front of his office
five private soldiers, more or less under
the influence of liquor, piled in it and or
dered the hombre to drive on. The above
note was forthcoming at drice when one
of the bullies read it, tore it up with an
oath and cuffed tho driver until ' he was
quite willing to drive on or do anything
else required of him. The little horses
were- almost driven to death and the na
tive in charge roundly abused every time
he offered a remonstrance. When their
drunkships got through with him, ho
was told to vamoose p. d. a., and of
course he did and arrived home much the
worse for wear. We write this simply to
warn the shysters who were guilty of the
foregoing, to steer clear of R. S., unless
they want to mix up with some trouble,
compared with which this Filipino war
Is mere child's play.'/
State Game and Flab Commission
Has Planned a Srwtematio Distri
bution of Trout and Pike Pry In
State Waters Violate** of Game
Laws Are to Be Severely Pun
ished When Caught.
The state game and fish commission ad
journed a series of daily meetings yes
terday, after planning for a systematic
distribution of trout and pike fry in the
lakes and rivers of the state, and issuing
deflnate. Instructions to game wardens
regarding spring shooting.
Yesterday marked the close of the open
■ebson for spring shooting, and the board
decided to make a vigorous effort to en
i force the law to the letter. It was agreed
among the board members that there was
nothing which made such serious inroads
upon the feathered fowl of the seate as
spring shooting, as it disturbed the birds
at their breeding season, and drove them
out of the country. For this reason in
structions were issued to all the wardens
calling their attention to the law, and
ordering its strict enforcement.
Supt. Morgan, of the fish hatchery, re
ported that he had on hand, nearly 3.
--000,000 trout fry, which would be ready
as soon as the spring- freshets subsided.
Mr. Morgan stated that the trout fry
' this year were the finest he had ever
seen, and. were in good shape to be ship
ped almost any distance.
Executive Agent Beutner reported that
he would within a week or ten days take
■a crew to Pike river, on Vermillion
• lake, for the annual harvest of pike
spawn. Last year the commission ob
tained about 80,000,000 pike eggs, of which
60 000 000 were hatched, and placed in
waters of the state. The pike are cap
tured as soon as they commence to run
out of the lake up the river, and strip
ped of the spawn. It requires the services
of experts to perform this operation suc
cessfully without Injuring either the fish
or the eggs, and Mr. Beutner will take
in his crew Supt. Morgan, of the hatch
ery, and several of the wardens who have
In the past been engaged in this work
every spring.
The commission Is unanimously decided
upon one thing, and that Is that all of
fenders against the game laws of the
state will be punished to the full extent
of tho law. Wardens will be Issued spe
cial instructions to exercise careful vigil
ance, and report immediately any In
fringement upon the game laws.
Future meetings of the commission will
be held subject to the call of President
Executive Agent Beutner said yester
day that the commlsion had planned to
pay particular attention to stocking rivers
and lakes with pike and trout fry. Last
year the commission put out about 2,-
OOOiOOO trout fry, 50,000,000 pike, 150,000 bass
and 800,000 carp, perch, and miscellaneous
varieties. The fish had been quite well
distributed all over the state. Mr. Beut
ner thinks the commission would be able
to meet the greater part, of the demands
for fry this year, Judging from the sup
ply now on hand at the Willow Brook
fish hatchery.
Speaking of game Mr. Beutner said that
the commission had agreed to make a
special effort to stop the killing of moose
in Northern Minnesota. "To my positive
knowledge," said Mr. Beutner yesterday,
"hunters are hired by lumber corpora
tions in the fall to do nothing but supply
the camp with fresh meat. The practice
Is, I think, quite general, and we are
going to look sharp after these fellows
next fall. Instructions will be Issued to
the wardens-, and, notices given all lum
bermen sufficiently far In advance to
warn them against killing any more game
out of season. The moose is the big
gest game in North America, and we
have perhaps the best preserves In the
United States, but they will not last
long if the pot hunters are not run out
of the country. It is not the object of
the commission to prosecute any poor
settler way back In the woods who kills
a little game for his own use, but it
is against those fellows that habitually
violate the law for a profit, that the
commission will look after.
Submitted by Admiral Dewey and
His Officers anA Men.
WASHINGTON. April IB.— Admiral
Dewey and hts officers and men have pre
sented their claims for prize and bounty
for captures and destruction by the
American ships at Manila. It is estimat
ed that Dewey will receive about $30,000
as his share of the allotment, provided
the most favorable view of the claims
be taken by the courts and the treas
ury department. Dewey and the other
claimants are represented by Herbert &
Mlcou, the senior member of which law
firm is the former secretary of the navy.
It will be contended that the three
ships belonging to the Spanish navy
which were restored, and which, will be
added to our naval register should be
regarded as prizes, a view which will
make some difference In the total amount
to be distributed.
Another question Involved is whether
the engagement between the American
and Spanish ships on May 1 was with an
Inferior or a superior force. If the lat
ter the bounty would be twice as large
as If the oourt decides the Spanish force
was inferior to the American fleet. There
Is a suggestion from a reliable authority
to the effect that the land batteries should
be considered In connection with th»
Btrength of the opposition, and if this
view be taken by the court of claims
it will be possible to recognize the Span
ish force as superior to the ships com
manded by Dewey.
Still another feature brought out by
the lawyers is that the courts should in
clude as prize money the property cap
tured ashore, such as guns, furniture, and
a vast amount of movable material, of
which there has been a survey and which,
if admitted, would add materially to the
allotment to Dewey and his force. The
old prise law of 1862 was construed by
the supreme court as being: limited to
captures on the sea, but in 1864 the law
was changed in such a way as to suggest
the claim now made that Dewey may
have a share in the value of property
captured by his ships at Manila, Cavlte,
and other places.

"My Investigation further shows that
I believe men are more cranky on the
subject of" food than women. It will pay
to have some advertisements ap
pealing to men, especially business men.
Keep in mind that men have very
finicky appetites for breakfast.
They smoke a great deal during the
day, stomach gets out of order, and the
next morning's food must be very tempt

Nuts are the one article of food that will
find a friend among such men. Wishing

This is from a letter from a prominent
business man, who volunteered the ad
vice about Grape-Nuts advertising.
There is one especial reason why Grape-
Nuts are popular among men who use
their brains. The new food does. contain
certain natural elements that rebuild tht
gray matter In the brain, and a person
can depend upon It that after ten days'
or two weeks' use of Grape-Nuts, he wlljl
discover a marked improvement In his
mental forces. This Is not merely a claln%
but the statement Is borne out by the
analysis of the food, and by the actual
experience of those who use it. When
these facts are coupled with the really
remarkable and delicious flavor, one can
realize why it Is the factory has been
