Is the watchword of men and womsn who are
alive and up-to-date. Old-fogylsm and stag
nation are mental death. Nations, cities and
individuals that progress are not afraid to get
out of the beaten path. The aggressive, earn
est, intelligent man or woman is not bound
by codes or dogmas. They think for them
selves, and humanity benefits thereby. As a
class, the medical profession is clannish. The
old school smacks of decay. Bleeding and
blistering died hard, but died nevertheless,
while homeopathy continues to progress, The
great Pasteur was not a physician, yet he
blazed a pathway which thousands now gladly
follow. A few bright, active, progressive phy
sicians, who will not be bound by precsdsnt,
and who have the courage of their convictions,
are doing a great work for ths profession as a
whole. They bslieve that no man or school
has absorbed all the medical knowledge ob
tainable, and when a scientific discovery is
made that revolutionizes a pet theory for the
treatment of disease, are willing to give it *
fair trial and abide by ths results if favorable.
Such a physician Is Dr. L. M. Lander, of
Chicago. Read and weigh the honest words
of this noted specialist:
"Several times during the past few years I have observed tho
effects of Warner's Safe Cure In cases of Kidney Trouble. I found
that the action of the medicine was highly curative In effect, and
that most desirable results followed its faithful uss.
I believe It to be a very fine remedy for Kidney disorders."

GOLD AT SIM RIVER
RICHEST STRIKE! OF THE SEASON

Find Is Made at the Depth of Iso

Between Walla—Former Oirner

WEST SUPERIOR,. March 7.—A special
from Mine Center states that one of the
richest strikes ever made in Western
Ontario is reported on the Randolph, lo
cated adjoining the Golden Star, three
miles from that place. The mining cap
tain who has been engaged on many of
the mines in Western Ontario, states
that on March 1 the miners took out
more gold that day than any mine In that
section ever took out in the same length
of time. The mining captain also said:
"It is the richest tiling in a mining way
yet uncovered in the Seine river camp."
Huge boulders of the rock were taken
. out. which were fairly peppered with
fine gold—a good indication. The walls
■were seven feet apart and were filled
with six and one-half of solid quartz, the
balance being mixed quartz and schist
and very rich. The shaft is down ISS
feet. Supt. Berger expects to crosscut
from that depth and also start dfifting
northwest and southeast on the vein.
Supt. Flaherty, of the Golden Star,
who recently visited the mine in company
with several prominent mining men of
the district, was surprised at the show
ing, although operating the adjoining
property, and expressed himself that it
was in his opinion the best thing- yet
shown up in the country. It has created
no little excitement in the Seine river
George W. Randolph, who was one of
the former owners of the Golden Star
and Randolph, was shown the report of
the rich strike made at the Randolph
and asked about it. He said:
"I left there several days ago. They
were at a depth of 180 feet when I left.
I am not surprised at the strike, as at
that depth it was looking exceptionally
well and had six feet of solid quartz be
tween the walls, besides additional
schist and quartz carrying gold values.
We have all the confidence in the
Golden Star, but in that property noth
ing ever compared to the showing made
by the Randolph at its present depth.
It has continued to improve from a
depth of seventy feet downward. Some
of the enthusiastic ones are talking of a
combination of the Golden Star and Ran
dolph and the erection of a 100-stamp
mill. The Golden Star has a crushing
and power capacity already for thirty
I 6tamps, but only ten in operation.
"The. Foley is now in full blast and
the Olive, and Golden Star are shipping
bullion out every month. The outlook
for the Seine river camp never was bet

and the buildings of the new railway

FIRE AT INSANE HOSPITAL.
Laundry at the St. Peter Institution
Totally Destroyed liarlj Yesterday.
ST. PETER, Minn., March 7.-(Special.)
—The St. Peter state insane hospital was
visited by a disastrous fire early this
morning, but one which, fortunately, was
unattended by any fatalities. The fire
started in the drying room of the laundry
and spread rapidly to the adjacent build
ings, used respectively for the electric
lighting department and the sleeping
apartments of the women employes. The
latter had narrow escapes, leaving in
their nightclothes, and were hardly out
side when a terrific explosion occurred,
caused by the overheated water in one
of the mangles of the laundry.
For &ome time the main building, occu
pied by the patients, was endangered,
and had this caught fire a frightful holo
caust must have occurred, similar to the
terrible fire of 1880. But inasmuch as the
connecting building, the new kitchen, is
of absolutely fireproof construction, this
danger was averted. After working sev
eral hours the city and hospital1 fire de
partments got the conflagratien under
control. The loss will be about $40,000,
covered by Insurance.

QUEEN'S WISE MOVE.
Will Visit Ireland for First Time-
Since Death of Prince Consort.
♦v,LO^™ ON> March 7—At no time since
the Diamond" jubilee has the queen
been so conspicuous an object In the
present mind as she is tonight. This
promises to be even more strikingly the
case tomorrow. Her majesty's visit to
London for a drive in semi-state from
Paddington station to Buckingham pal
ace would be sufficient in Itself to create
great public manifestations of loyalty,
but the announcement this evening that
for the first time since the jubilee she
will tomorrow drive from Buckingham
palace along the embankment to St.
Paul's cathedral and back through Hol
born and Picadilly to St. James is bound
to make tomorrow a gala day in the an
nals of London. Beyond all this is the
announcement of the queen's intention
to visit Ireland for the first time it Is
sad, since the death of the prince con
sort. This is regarded as one of the most
remarkable acts of the queen's life. No
minister of the crown has ever dared
to suggest such a remarkable undertak
"The trip," said a well informed official
this afternoon, "is the spontaneous sug
gestion of the queen alone, and the en.
thusiasm it is bound to create when
known in London tomorrow is impossi
ble to estimate. It is a wonderful proof

Winston Churchill* Graphic De
scription of a Battle.
LONDON, March 7.-Writing of a
modern action, as judged by the hard
fighting that preceded Spion Kop, Win
ston Churchill says in the Morning
"Modern action is very disappointing
as a spectacle. There is no smoke, ex
cept that of the bursting shells. The
combatants are scattered, spread over
a great expanse of ground, concealed be
hind rocks, clad in neutral tints. All
the bombs and magnificence of Omdur
man, the solid lines of infantry, the
mighty dervish array, bright with flash
ing spears and waving flags were ex»
eluded. Rows of tiny dots hurried for
ward a few yards and vanished into the
brown of the earth. Bunches and clus
ters of brown things, huddlied among the
rocks or in sheltered spots. The artil
lery unlimbered and horses hlden in the
sheltered places, were scarcely visible.
One shell in miniature, through field
glasses, a great wave of infantry surge
forward along a spur and disappear be.
hind a crest line. The patter of Mauser
rifles swelled into a continuous rumbling
like a train of wagons passing over a
pontoon bridge, and presently the wave
recoiled, the minute figures that com
posed it squeezed themselves into cover
among some rocks, a great many groups
of men began carrying away black ob
jects. A trickle of independent drops
dispersed itself. Then we groaned.
There had been a check. The distant
drama continued. The little distant fig
ures began to move again, little active
forms moved about among the rocks.
Then the whole wave started again, full
of impetuousity, started forward and
never came back again. And at this
we were all delighted, and praised the
valor of our unequaled infantry and
wished we were near enough to give them

"My attention has been drawn to the
appeal for funds issued by the committeo
of the American ship 'Maine.' I have
not the slightest wish to check the gen
erosity of those who are desirous of re
