I reluctantly break the silence I have heretofore kept. As long as my sorrow and trouble was a mere personal affair I have not thought it proper that 1 .-should speak of it to strangers. 1 have appealed to the courts to vindicate my rights, but without success. The theft of my little child has now, it seems, been approved and Justified by religious, prominent and respectable people, and 1 have nowhere to turn in my distress except lo the pub lic. I have nothing to do with any reli gious quarrel that people may engage in over my' affairs.' 1 and my child have rights superior to "all theologies or churches. If it is not righi to kill or tor ture people for religious belief why should I be tortured and wor°e than kill ed and my little Ida May bo deprived of the rights that the most unfortunate child Is given? The fact is that from ;he time little Ida was three hours old until my bi other's d-flh, last month, I was her mother In all that a mother can be; she never slept a night out of my arms. 1 loved her all the more because her real mother was dead and I had no child of my own. In thia way, It seems we were more isolated and were all in all to each other. Ip to my brother's death we were a happy and united household. He was an ardent, warm-hearted man, who won all with whom he came in contact. His dy ing wish was that we should all stay to gether, and I know my assurance that the children would always have my care soothed bis last hours. lie was hardly burled when from every Sld« (as it no-w appears) came strang^m who had never shown any Interest in him or the children to break up what was left of our home; to lure the boys away from their home and the placo where they were born, and, worst of all. to steal away my little girl, who knew no other love than mine. Those strangers who take such an in terest in my affairs now say that I am a Catholic; but have not Catholics at least as much rl^ht as animals are given In the oare and love of those toward whom they occupy a parental relation? They also say that I have neither home nor means. My answer is that since I came to St. Paul I have clothed Tda May, and during the last year havo helped to clothe and support the boys as well. If my brother had not perfect confidence in my ability to care for the children he would not on his death bed ha.ye com mitted them to my care. It was my in tention to carry out my brother's wi and to keep the home which these stran gers have have succeeded in breaking up. Since Ida May disappeared I have used every means in my power to find her, but without success. Whether she is living or dead. I cannot tell, nor where or with whom she is. I have not means to em ploy detectives in the different states where she may be, and my purpose In writing this letter is to ask all the men. women and even children who may read It to help me find my child. She cannot be kept hidden if only people will tell ma what they know. All I ask is the help of their information. My lawyer tells me that if I can find wh^re she is the courts will get her for me. If only women mothers—who are engaged in this cruel persecution of me would make tiie case thrir own for one of the sad weeks 1 have borne it, they would surely desist. —Marguerite Bowman, M 8 Ashland avenue, St. Paul.

MARGARET STANTON, AtiUD SIXTY, HOItItIBI.Y INJURED AT NBKRIAM l'Alllt SPARK IGNITED THE LOUNGE In Try in »t to V. v inuu >sli the • hti.n-a Her < iuth«'A (kmKill, With IVilmp* I'iilhl Re ■alto. Mra. Margaret Stanton, living at 100 West Fllmore avenue, was perhaps fa tally burned yesterday afternoon, short ly before 6 o'clock, while visiting at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Cavid Hart man, living at 444 Prior uvonue, Merriura Park. Mrs. Stanton was alone In the house when the accident that may cost her life happened. She had just lighted the kitchen stove, preparatory to getting supper by the time her daughter should return home, when a spark from the stovo set fire to a lounge. Mrs. Btanton endeavored to extinguish the blaze that quickly enevloped the lounge, and her j Clothing caught fire. In an Instant flames 1 encompassed the unfortunate woman, 1 whom ni> one wa^s near to rescue. Scream- I ing with pain, Mra. Stanton rushed about the house trying to lind some way of quenching her blazing clothing, but .with out success, and, when almost overcome, she ran into the yard, where she threw herself Into a .small pond and was saved from burning to death. She had gone to her daughter's home yesterday morning to spend the day. and, being left alone, determined toward evening to assist In preparing supper. Scarcely had she started the tire In the stove when the lounge caught fire.. Before Mrs. Sianton noticed the danger from the flying spark the loung was ablaze. To save the house from burning down Mrs. Sianton tried to beat out the fire with her hands, and then seized a towel with which to fight the fire. While engaged In trying to ex tinguish the blaze her clothing whirled too near the lounge, and her dress blazed up about her. Mrs. Stanton called for help, but no one heard her, and, after running frantically about the house, she rushed into the yard. Here the wind fan ned the flames, and the agonized woman could scarcely reach the little pond to ward which she lied. Dropping almost exhausted Into the shallow water, she rolled about until the flame 3 were nearly out, when Mrs. Berry and har daughter, living in the adjoining house, hurried to her assistance and smothered the smold ering flre with a wet blanket. The burns .sustained by Mrs. Sianton extend over almost her entire body. The lower limbs are frightfully burned, while chest, arms and neck are slightly charred In places. Her face is somewhat buraed and her haLr singed. The left aim is charred almost the entire length. Mrs. Stanton was a'tended by Dr. Beckley, who administered every possible relief and gives some hopes of Mrs. Stanton'a recovery. The shock incident to the ter rible burns will be severe, however, and owing to Mrs. Stanton'3 advanced age she may not survive. The Merriam Park fire department-put out the flre in the kitchen before the house had been materially damaged. ROYAURCANUM ANNUAL M'KEiNXEY IS GRAND RECENT FOR THE TEAR.

Mankato was chosen for the next meet- Ing place of the grand lodge, which will convene the fourth Tuesday in March,. 1901. The session opened yesterday morn ing at Elks' hall, Grand Regent Gilbert presiding. There was a good attendance of delegates and life members of the lodge. Grand Regent Gilbert's report read at the morning session, showed that the lodge had enjoyed a steady growth. An especially encouraging feature waa the decreased number of suspensions. which might be taken as an evidence of the better feeling which prevailed among the membership and satisfaction with the succtss of the change of plan In assess ments, which has resulted in the accumiv latlon of so large an emergency fund. Two councils have been instituted during th« past year—Gopher Council No. 1775 r Minneapolis, with a present membership of fifty-four, and Sibley Council No. 1755, St. Paul, having a present membership of eighty-three. This council has the largest charter list of any council organ ized in this jurisdiction. The report rec ommended that members be better posted on the principles and work of thf> order and on the plan of operation and th« con dition of the order, so that mlsstate mentfl might be refuted. The report also recommended the publishing of a paper that would in a comprehensive way dis seminate information. Grand Secretary Hughes' report con tainod the following: On Nov. 28, 1899, the supreme regent called upon our Brand regent to furnish 135 new members as Minnesota's quota of the number required by the order to reach a membership of 300.(UK) on or before May 1, 1900. The grand regent promised that Minnesota would not be found among the laggards, and to make his word good he asked each subordinate council to w>rk for an 8 per cent increase in membership Is —NOW MARK EVERY WORD—a carefully prepared extract of the best known vegetable reme dies for the blood, stomach, kidneys, liver and nerves; so skillfully compounded that k retains every virtue of every ingredient; so perfect in intrinsic merit that it cures when all other medicines fail;-so-satisfactory that once used it becomes the favorite |*mlly remedy.

It was a great, Haunting American Beauty rose and it nodded with a number of its slaters rrom an old blue jardiniere, whose rich color act off the exquisite huo of the roses us nothing else could. Tlia American Beauty was quite In its <.!»■■ merit. On nearly every side of it were long glasses that reflected not. only the beautiful Cower and its companions, but all sorts of beautiful colors as well; col ors that were combined and twisted Into what seemed great ma.sses of bloom. For a while the American Beauty was con tent to at those rivals of hers or at those other rivals, beautifully dre.-^il women who walked softly up and flown the length of the great millinery rooms at Mannheimers" admiring everything with frank volubility. But finally the capricious flower became tired of being a mere idle spectator. Sh<- tattered her petals and remarked to her sisters: 'T shall certainly speak to her," nodding in the direction of anoher rose, almost tho exact counterpart of herself. But th*_ sl ranger, instead cf standing knee deep in cool water In a quaint ;aruiniere, rest ed In unconventional fashion against a mass of soft lace and silk, formed to re semble, a great mushroom. "She has peculiar taste," decided the American Beauty, "but 1 shall speak tv her all the same," and, leaning- over, a breath of perfumed words was wafted to the stranger. Then the American Beauty made a discovery and it caused her to be. come a shade or two deeper in color. The stranger waa artificial. She pretended not to notice the smiles of iMir sisters, but devoted her attention to two richly dressed women who stood near deep in conversation. "Certainly the hats are exquisite this year," saul the taller of the two. "I al ways make it a point to attend Ma-nn rreimer Bros.' millinery openings and al ways enjoy them, but this spring they have certainly surpassed themselves." "Yes, indeed," agreed her companion. "Look at that hat. Isn't it exquisite I declare it is difficult to distinguish tha artificial rose from the real one," and we looked irom the flower on the hat to the American Beauty In the jardiniere, and the American Beauty felt appeased. Just then a saleswoman approached the two shoppers and'the rose was an inter ested listener to all tha.t followed. First the attendant told about the trimmings that were to be in vogue this spring and summer. There vas the Claire de .Laiue, a beautiful spangled net, so soft and nlniy that the rose wondered why they did not call it by its English nanid "moonlight." Then there were the Ren aissance, the duchesse and the point de Robespierre laces; flowers of all kinds.and fruit, grapes, berries and cherries that looked good enough to eat. For addeci garniture there were the paatel orna ments and the skeletonized tobacco leaves, the latter made of claire de L,aine, jetted net and Tuscan laces. Later some hats were shown. One, the attendant called the petal hat, was made of solid pansy petals with, an immense bow of Ophelia velvet. 'Though-the hat shaded tha face slightly, the brim was raised sufficiently to show the hair. The Char lotte Corday hat was of pink straw, a modified pok.j bonnet shape. The crown was covered with white net and over the brim was a ruffle of la.cc. A band or black velvet ribbon was drawn about the Tarn 'oShanter crown and hung- in 'stream era at the back. Another hat the at tendant called the mushroom droop, it was of Tuscan straw faced with cream white chiffon. Directly in front was an immense black velvet bow and drooping over the brim was a small bunch of June roses. Then a number of black hats were shown, so summery looking in spite or their somber color that they looked as if a puff of wiiicl mi^ht blow them away. They were trJmrr.ed in ehiffou and nets mostly The shoppers moved on, but by craning its neck a good deal tbc America?, Beauty could see them pause in rapt a<l mlraUon before a table of children's hats. Such airy creations these bats were, in poke bonnet style, usually, with the sweetest of wil.l ftowen for trimming' and the softest of ehiffoi b to ruftlo about the baby faces. The American Beauty finally lost ?ight of her friends in the crowd of shoppers, but she scon became as Inter | ested in others, fox nU%!ay yesterday the steady procession kept up "in the great millinery department All day the beau tiful ha is were exhibited and admirer! until at 6 o'clock, when liie la.-,t shopper had reluctantly taken her leave.. the American Beauty decided that it would be rather a nice thing after nil to bo an artificial flower, if one coir.fi repose on one of those exquisite creations that wonurf call hats.

The Prophetio Messenger, R. Hollings worth's Minneapolis periodical, which so closely foretold the existing weather con ditions for the first three months of the current year, in this Issue takes up the next three months, as follows: "April opens In the midst of a general storm period for Minnesota and adjoining states, and about the beginning of the winter's break-up. March 28 or there abouts will mark the beginning of stormy and disagreeable conditions, accompanied by rain, sleet, and possibly hail, In the southern portion of the Mississippi valley, with the approach of much cooler weather about, the Suth. This condition will pre vail south of the Wth parallel. North of ihls line we would look for falling tem perature about the USth, followed by rain, turning into snow flurrie3, with the wind shifting well to ■ the north and northeast about the 29th. Blustering conditions will continue about the 3d of April, when the temperature should rise in the northern portion of the Mississippi valley and Michigan, but the general storm condition will continue until about the sth, when it will turn warmer, with much more prom ising weather. ■ Should tho wind shift to the west and northwest near the 6th and 7th, the con ditions for seeding in the Northern states will -be very promising indeed. The week following the 7th the. greater portion of the Northern states are due for west winds, accompanied by cool, frosty nights, making tho sunny side of buildtng3 the most comfortable and pleasant until near noon the next day. This* condition will be more aggravated as we near the 11th or 12th, which will likely be broken up with thunder storms near these dates, then followed by a rising temperature and more settled weather, commencing on or about the 12th. Rainfall lor the fli^st half of the month should be about the average, while the temperature should be slightly below that of average years. With the approach of full moon on the 14th. indicates. the continuance of warm weather over the enthv Mississippi val ley, accompanied with considerable west arid southwest wind, amounting to al most destructive storms in western South Dakota and Nebraska. There is no indi cations of late frosts In the Southern states during the month of April, with the exception of Ist, 2d, 21st and 22d, which dates should .not be entirely for gotten by tho planter and gardner. About the 10th the weather should turn cooler In the Northern states, followed i by extremely blustering and threatening weather on the 20th and 21st, with much rain, thunder storms and possibly hail in Eastern Nebraska, "Wester.n Illinois! and Western South Dakota. Were it not for strong wind during this period (from i the 20th to the 23rd), we would expect killing frosls to extend well southward, probably extending as far south as tlie northern limits of the (tulf states. We j warn our readers in the far M>uth to be on the lookout for this. The melon au.l berry industry of the Central and North ern states should also be protected. After the 22nd a change to warmer is indicated, with general storm conditions developing in the Western states about the 23rd. when the wind should shift tust ward, accompanied with rainy and <ifiz zling weather during the 23rd and .'4th. clearing by the 25th and turning warmer throughout the gieater portion of the Mississippi valley, and 1n all probabiliiy j passing beyond the danger of frost 9OUtO : of the 35th parallel. Further north cool- ] er weather may be expected on and about the evening of the ifl'.th, with danger of killing frosts on the 25th, 2(ith and J7th, to be followed by generally fair and ; clear weather, with predominating west ' winds. The average temperature should range about the average during the last half of the month, while the rainfall is likely to be deficient with the exception of NorthßTM Illinois, Indiana and Miehi i,M!i, which will be in excess. The above forecast applies to Minneso ta, the Dakotas. Wisconsin, Western 1111 --iioin, lowa, Nebraska, Eastern Kansas and the northern half of Missouri anil Michigan, particularly so In the ord.-r Riven. Do not try to make this tit At lantic coast or Pacific slope weather, as it is not reliable. INDICATIONS FOR MAY AND JUNE. The outlook for the coming crops is somewhat confusing and would give room to the, calamity howler for a gue.ss. A dry, backward and cold spring over tho entire state of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, the Dakotas. Nebraska, North ern Kansas, lowa, Northern Missouri and Northwestern Illinois is praeticHli'y one of the certainties of the season. Thus con sidering, we would not encourage very ex tensive preparations for large corn crops in the states named. Wheat and all grain and cereals which thrive best in such seasons are the ones tho farmer should de pend upon for his .success. Corn will be about the least promising of all 1 the crops during the months of April, May and June, but after the Ist of July conditions promise more favorable for this crop. All who must depend upon their corn crop should be in no gival hurry In getting it In the ground before the middle or end of May. This might seem ridiculous, but ! corn cannot be grown without favorable weather and little of this will be had bo foro the latter part of May. "There is a time for all things." Bear Ihls in mind. Put in your crop when it will flourish and cast aside custom. A crop planted dur ing the first week of June will prove far more valuable to the farmer than one planted during the first half of May. Try It. "For all things there is a season"—not meaning a custom, but the time when con ditions will favor such.

The rainfall for the month of May will be slightly below the average for the greater portion of the Northern Missis sippi valley. The temperature will be about that of previous years. The rain fall for the month of June to Hkely to be in excess with the temperature somewhat below that of average years.
