Jf AUL, GLOBE, WEDNESDAY, MAY 17, 1899. DEWEY JR. IS IN TOWN SON OF AMERICA'S 'ADMIRAL PAYS ST. PAUL A BUSINESS ' VISIT NOT LONG ON INTERVIEWS It Is Hia Particular Aversion Just at This Time, and lie Steadfastly Declined to Submit to an Inter view by the Globe Yesterday Afternoon—And at That He Istvea by Print. George Goodwin Dewey. pon of Admiral Dewey, was a St. Paul visitor yesterday, but no brass bands heralded.his presence. Indeed, It was kept very, very quiet. Al though he was a guest of the Ryan, a careful perusal of the register would not have revealed his presence. If there is any one thing that Dewey flls dreada worse that the Filipinos fear the heavy guns of Dewey pere, it is the peace-de stroying- pencil of the newspaper man. Some of the same clearness of purpose and will to fulfill It which enabled the father to thread th 9 passage of Corregl dor and reduce Montojo's fleet is appar- GEORGE DEWEY JR. ent In the success with which the son sticks to his determination to let the family find fame through the naval prow ess of his illustrious ancestor. George Goodwin- Dewey's mission in St. Paul now is one. of importance, but not spec tacular, however much it may be of in terest to the fair sex. Mr. Dewey is sell ing "prints," which perhaps accounts for the fact that he had his mail addressed In care of I.indake, "Warner & Schurmeier, in order to avoid the notice* of possible chance callers at the hotels, who might ask for "the D's." .-;'■".-:'- • '• . That a man who lives by print should be so afraid of print seems almost para doxical, but then the prints in which Mr. Dewey deals are figured, and figures don't He, which can't always be said for the other prints, hence his caution. In person Mr. Dewey is a mar. of less than medium height and rather slender, but with a keen eye, a trace of the famil iar features of his father, and a mouth that looks as if it could keep Its own counsel, an appearance It does not bello, at least so far as concerns interviewers. Quiet in dress, suave in manner, Mr. Dewey is every inch in appearance, as in fact, the metropolitan business represent ative. No one who has done -business' with Mr. Dewey Jr. will doubt for a mo ment that he could tell you if he would why Merrimac,after all Hobson's adver tising.brings but 4% cents; while Martha. Washington 3-4 goes for <i, and George Washington X 4-4 for SH£ cents. Nor would it bother him in the least, prob ably, to explain why Cocheco (Chocolate, with all the traditions of the romantic dalles of the St. Croix to endear it to feminlnty hereabouts, is worth no more to the local jobbing . trade than Pacific mousseline, and but a fraction of a cent better than Manchester Rarnuge. Garner fancies at 4 cents, while Nubian and In dian cashmere alike scale 10%, seems like a discrimination in behalf .of foreign made goods to demand the intervention, if. not of an admiral, at least of the son of an admiral, and it is not in apropos, therefore, that Mr. Dewey's errand to St. Paul should be the illumination of the print market by late patterns and prices from the East. Mr. Dewey's reticence under the per suasive processes of the press is not to be wondered at, when one is made famil iar 'v£ith some of the alleged bon mots with which the young business man has been perplexed since May 1 of IS9B. Of course he carries samples. Here is one, abstracted from his telescope: First Drummer (patronizingly)— You know, George, you're so like your father, you figure in the prints so much,- Second Drummer—l think 111 go to bed. Here's another: "Very different from your father, George." "How's that?" "He introduces his goods without a per sonal visit." i Can you blame Dewey Jr. for balking at the gauntlet of newspaper interview ing? CAPT. RUSSELL, GOBS EAST. "..'!

The institute will continue in session today and tomorrow. The visiting phys icians will banquet this evening at the Aberdeen. ■ Dr. T. J. Gray read a paper In which he took the position that the "early operation" in cases of appendicitis was no longer in harmony with the best judg ment of the profession. Dr. Gray advo cated very strongly and commended a more extended use of medical treatment In caaes of appendicitis. "Nature has great resources," said Dr. Gray, "and the natural agency should be given a chance to relieve the patient." The growing conservatism of the profession was in sympathy with this view of the question, Dr. Gray thought. Yet an immediate re sort .to surgery was often the only thing that could be. done to save the patient's life. This was frequently the case when the disease was not diagnosed. in its early stages. In cases where It was taken in time he thought medical treatment was most ef fective. ON CARE OF CHILDREN. "When babies were first born. 1 used to see the people' gather and make a paste of red pepper and grease, which was then rubbed into the flesh of the in fant, in his mouth, and ears, and 1 pre sume some of it got Into his eyes. If the baby survived, his parents said he was a strong and healthy baby, and would be carefully brought up. If he died, everyone said he was sickly and would have died anyhow. Then his lit tle body would be used for alligator bait." Dr. Perry made the remarks quoted above and supplemented them with r.n explanation that it happened in Central Africa, when he was a missionary in his younger years. The remark waa called out in a discussion .of a paper read by Dr. E. E. Hurd, of Minneapolis, upon "The Care of the Child During the First Year." Dr. Hurd in her paper expressed regret at the prevalent failure on the part of parents to educate their daughters with a sense of the seriousness of their sex and the grave problems which after years would bring them. She believed no fam ily physician had discharged his duty to parents until he had induced them to give their children a broad and liberal educa tion In the problems of sex. Dr. H. R. Rowe, of Minneapolis, dur ing the general discussion, touched upon the prenatal influence which might be brought to bear upon the child. He was of the opinion that the mother could con vey strong mental impressions and In fluences to the mind of the child. In hia own practice, he proceeded along this line, and advised mothers among his patients to pursue such lines of thought as would leave a pleasing and desirable mental impress upon the life of the child. Dr. Ogden, of St. Paul, had little faith In this theory so far as physical impres sions and marks were concerned, but did believe there was truth in the theory so far as mental impressions were con cerned. Other papers were read as follows: "Convulsions," Esther H. Young, Minne apolis; "Scarlet Fever," Dr. H. W. Brazie, Minneapolis; "Vaccination," Dr. H. M. Luein, Minneapolis. Discussions of these papers were given by W. E. Leonard, J. D. Crawford, and H. H. Leavitt, of Minneapolis. Under the head of "Electro Therapy" the meeting at the afternoon session heard papers by Dr. B. H. Ogden and Dr. "W. L. Jerman, of Minneapolis. M. P. Austin, of Minneapolis, presided over a discussion upon the various meth ods in surgery. Dr. R. St. J. Perry, of Farmington, told of a new treatment of Medio-Tarsal disease. Dr. W. T. Stone, of Park Rapids, read a paper on "Diag nosis of Injuries at Hip Joint." "The Art of Neglecting Wounds" was the subject of a paper read by Dr. H. C. Aldrich, of Minneapolis. When time for adjournment In the even ing arrived three important subjects on yesterday's programme were left un touched. They will be taken up today. Dr. E. H. Pratt, of Chicago, one of the most eminent surgeons in the country, will speak before the institute today. At the morning session Dr. Cora Smith Eaton presided in the absence of Presi dent E. L. Mann, who is on his way home from Europe. ,No recommendations were made by Dr. Eaton. Each speaker was given as much time as desired, and no time limit was placed on the discussion of the papers read. Dr. Hurd and Dr. Lufkin were placed on the committee of censors to fill va cancies. Drs. McDonald, Hayes and Briggs were appointed a memorial committee to draw up suitable resolutions upon the death of Dr. Reuben Ludlum, of Chicago. The membership committee recommend ed the names of Drs. A. G. Hammond, of Minneapolis, and George G. Cranford, of Avoca, Minn., for membership. The re port was adopted. A nominating committee consisting of Drs. Hurd, Lufkin and Ashley was ap pointed. CHANCE FOR MOAK. Humane Society MiKlit Inquire Aliffot Such Parent*! as Thexe. Huddled in a down-town doorway at 2 o'clock yesterday morning, Officer Ham mergreen found two little waifs, Nicholas Daliment and Frank Moshot, wet to the skin by the pouring rain and crying with fright. One of the youngsters is nine years old, the other but six. Asked why they were not at home the older of the boys said because they had not made sufficient money selling papers. They must have 20 cents when they returned home, the boy said, or they would rec eive a whipping. It had rained during the early part of the evening, and the sale for papers had been slow, so the lad said he and his companion preferred to stay out in the weather rather than go home without enough money. Officer Hammergreen took the young sters to the central station, where Matron Cummings tucked them snugly away in a warm bed, and they soon forgot their troubles in slumber. Yesterday morning they were sent to their parents, who live on the upper flats, near the high bridge. OLD WILKIH ESTATE. Part of It In Involved In a Suit How on Trial. The ca.se of Sarah W.

The cabin was burned down, and "Old .Bill" was incinerate;! alive. When the premises were -examined yesterday all that was left of the old man was a few, charred bones and a part of head.

Mr. Palmer and two of his sons hurried to the cabin to find it wrapped in flames. They called "Old Bill's" name, but . re ceived no response. The fire burned too fiercely for them to enter the cabin, and when a search was yesterday made for the occupant his charred bones were found among" the ashes. • .. It Is believed that the cabin caught fire from sparks from the stove or possibly that the old man may have overturned a lamp in preparing to retire. r So far as is known-the dead man has no relatives in this part of the country now, although a number of years ago he had two sons Irving in St. Paul. He him self was a printer, and years ago held cases on the Globe. He mingled freely with those who knew him, but discussed his personal affairs but little. He has friends or.lelatives somewhere, as he is said to have regularly received letters from them. While al ways known as "Old Bill Hill," It is said that the unfortunate man's correct name was James W. Hill. •?>-'•".~V The remains were taken in charge -by Capt. Henry Hoyt. the burial agent of the federal government, and will be interred at the expense of the country for which he fought. ■ ■ GEN.
