sin w i is PUBLICATION IN MEDICAL. SOCI ETY'S OFFICIAL, PAPER. CAUSES MICH DISPLEASURE SOCIETY AVOIDED POLITICS Why the Five Men Selected to Run the Paper Broke Loose at This Time Is What Is Hurting. Members of the Ramsey County Medi cal society were both surprised and chagrined to read, in the current num ber of the St. Paul Medical Journal, a lengthy editorial laudato.yof Dr. Anck.;r, the present head of the county hospital. The editorial in qmstion states that the administration of Dr. Ancker, during tte time he has held his position, has been highly satisfactory, and says that the board of control will make a grave mis take unless it elects him his own suc cessor. To add to the displeasure o" some of the doctors, the Pioneer Pres.3 reproduced the salient points of the edi torial in the Medical Journal In an edi torial and accompanied them with com ment in a similar vein yesterday morn ing-. The St. Paul Medical Journal, it will be remembered, was started some yeais ago as the official organ of the Ramsey County Medical association, and was designed' primarily as a vehicle for the dissemination of the higher medical opin ion of the county. It was the intention of its founders to hold the paper aloof from politics of every kind and to make it simply a journal for the ger.tral prac titioner. The present deviation from the principles on which the paper is sup posed to be based is, therefore, not en tirely pleasing and bids fair to cause a storm at the next meeting of the society. While it is generally remitted that Dr. Ancker's executive administration of aC fairs at the county hospital has been fairly satisfactory, the society is divided In its individual preference a 5* to whether or not Dr. Ancker is deserving of re election this spring. But apart from their wishes for a chance there are many members of the Riimsey County Medi cal society who are wondering how and where the live editors of the Journal derived their authority tor, the publica tion of the aiticle referred to above. They are both surprised and indignant and the matter will not be allowed to drop where it is at present. As a matter of fact, it is stated, on what appears to be good authority, that there are fever members of the society in favor of the retention of Dr. Anekor than ever betore, but their code of ethics checks them when it comes to takintc an open stand in the matter. That the editorial in the Pioneer Press will have the effect of assisting Dr. Ancker is doubtful^ certain people saly, that the uttc-rance in his favor in that paper ■was not inspired by wholly disinterested n olives. Four years ago, when two physicians, not members of the society, were aft^r the position, the society refused to in dorse Dr. Ancker. It is therefore more amazing to seme of them that at thi-r time when two aspirants are members of the society, the official organ shou'd take sides in the matter. That's the rub. This much is certain: The board of control has three candidates for the pos'. tion now held by Dr. Ancker, and may po:=rfbly have more. All the candidates r.ow in the field are men of recognized ability and that they are held in high repute by the members of the county nu-cMoal society. Minneapolis News. W.

Some Who Could Have Been Kfuss flntl They So WlNhed. London Tid-Bits. - The English crown has been rejected on!y once, and then Cromwell was the man who refused the honor. Neverthe less, practically, as much power was at tached to the protectorship, though it was without the regal emblem. The crown of Greece has been refused more often than any other. Lord Derby, one of the greatest statesmen of the Victorian era, might have worn it, if he had chosen, for it was offered to him thirty-eight years ago upon the expul sion of Otto, owing to the friendly feel ing he exhibited toward Greece. After some ccr.<Mueration, however, he decided that his position as a British statesman prevented his being a monarch, so he refused the throne and the ?250,000 a year attached to it. Englishmen seem to have found favor in_Greece at that time, for no sooner had Lord Derby refused the throne than it was offered to the Duke of Edinburgh, the queen's second son. He would, in all probability, have accepted it, had it not been for the objections of other European sovereigns, who considered that a son of Queen Victoria, as king ot Greece, would make that country an ally of Great Britain in the event of war, although the former's military strength was as insignificant as it Is now. The Duke of Edinburgh was, therefore, obliged to be content with his British title; so the throne was then offered to and accepted by the present king, George of Denmark, brother of the Piince.-s of Wales. Garibaldi, the great Italian patriot, might have been king of JSicily had he not refused the proffered throne. Victor Emanuel thought that nothing short of a kingdom would be sufficient reward for the gTeat services h« ;iaS rend-.-rod to Italy, so he resolved to cut off Sicily and make it a kingdom under Garibaldi, but subject to the Italian government:. More over, the great soldier was the idol of the Italian people, and it vas feared that Victor Emanuel himself would easily be deposed in his favor if a re bellion were organise!!. Garibaldi, how ever, disliked honors as he did riches, and, rejecting the offer, retired into ob scurity as soon as hi had done what he considered to be h<s 'luty. Another man who mignt hive been a king had he wished was Bismarck. Not only did Prussia crush Austria in the great war of 1866, but several minor states as well, and for his services in bringing the campaign to a successful is sue, Bismarck was offered the throne of one of lhose kingdoms which now came under Piussian surveillance. The throne of Austria was refused in 184S by the father of the present Em peror Francis Joseph. He was the Arch duke Carl, and, when Ferdinand I. abdi cated on account of internal strife in the year mentioned, he absolutely refused to have anything to do witTi the mon archy, though he was the rightful heir. The crown was then offered to his son and accepted, but the father remained archduke for years afterward. Some years ago Prince Napoleon, nephew of the great Bonaparte, died in exile, after refusing the first offer of the crown of Roumania when it was con verted into a kingdom. He was a man of great ambition, and fully bslieved that at a future date he would be offered the monarchy of France; so^he declined the former in the hope that he would get better things. By so doing he lost his chance of ever becoming a king, and died a few years afterward, an outcast.

THE ST. PAUL GLOBE, SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 1901. li Hi MANY UK LEGISLATORS ARE FIGURING ON THE REAPPORTIONMENT OF THE STATE. HAVE BEES IN THEIR BONNETS Not a Few Have Denljcna on a . Place In the National House of Repre sentatives. The joint committee on reapportionment has as yet held no meeting. They are planning for their first conference some time this week, probably Tuesday. In the hands of this committee is doubtless the most important work which will come before the legislature this session. In terest naturally hinges on this particular proceeding, and until it Is settled other events of less concern, especially to the Republicans of the state, who will be the reapers of the spoils in any event, so far as the influence of the committee ex tends, will command divided attention. Numerous plans for redistricting the state have- been suggested and others are being devised. The minority members of the legislature are taking little or no part in the affairs, since they will be prevented from participating in the work of slicing up the state. The plans are all therefore such as will make the full nine districts apparently Republican. Nearly all the plans thus far advanced have been either wholly or in part form ed by an ambitious Republican, who wants to get to congress through means of the redistricting process. It would, perhaps, be impossible to determine the number and names of all thes e gentle men, but at present those who are prom inently discussed as would-be represen tatives are included in the following list: Speaker Dowling, Lieut. Gov. Smith, Sen ators Young-, Buckman, J. D. Jones. Grindeland, Myran, H. J. Miller and Somerville, Albert Berg, Ezra Valentine, of Breckenridge, and S. G. Comstock, of Moorehead. The plan for the nine new districts which the joint committee is said to favor is the following: First district—Houston, Fidmore, Mow er, Freeborn, Winona, Olmsted, Dodge, Steele, Wabasha, Total population, 115, --\2\. Second—Faribault, Martin, Jackson, Nobles, Rock, Waseca, Blue Earth, Wa tonwan. Brown, Cottonwood, Murray, Pipestone. Population, 399.250. Third—Goodhue, Rice. Le Sueur. Nicol let, Scott, Dakota, Carver, Sibley, Mc- L,eod. Population, 183,066. Fourth—Ramsey and Washington. Population. 1*18,362. Fifth—Hennepin. Population 228.341. Sixth—Wright, Sherburne, Benton, Steams, Mille lacs, • Morrison. Todd, Douglas, Crow Wing, Case, Wadena. Hubbard. Populafon. 199,075. Seventh—Redwood. Lyon. Lincoln. Ren ville. Yellow Medicine. Lac Qui-Parle, Chippewa, Meeker, Kandiyohi. Swift. Pope Stevens Big Stone, Grant, Tra vesse. Population. 202,110. Eighth—Cook. Lake. St. Louis, Carlton, Pine. Kanabec, Isanti, Chisapo. Anoka, Aitken. Itasca. Population. 162,125. Ninth—Otter Tail. Wilkin. Becker, Clay, Morrison, Polk. Red Lake, Bel trami. Marshall, Kittson, Roseau. Popu lation, 190,052. Many of the Second district members have a plan which they claim is the best yet offered. Two advantages are to be gained, they affirm, by their system. These are a more equal division of popu lation and closer railroad communica tions. The notab:e feature about this system is that it removes Congressman McCleary and Blue Earth county from the second district and place them in the Third with Heatwole. The plan is as follows: First District—Dodge, Fiilmore, Free born, Houston, Mower, Olmsted, Steele, Wabasha, Winona. Total population, 193,404. Second—Brown, Cottonwood, Faribault, Jackson, Lincoln, Lyon, Martin, Murray, Cobles Pipestone, Redwood, Rock. vV'a tonwan, Yellow Medicine. Population, 191,437. Third—Blue Earth, Carver, Dakota, Goodhue, Le Sueur, Nicollet, Rice. Scott, Waseca. Population, 193,tf75. Fourth—Ramsey and Washington. Pop ulation, 198,362. Fifth—Hennepin. Population, 228,340. Sixth—Big Stone, Chippewa, Douglas, Grant, Kandiyohi, Lac gui Parle, Mo.- Le-;d, Pope, Renville, Sibley, Stevens, Swift, Traverse. Pouplation, 153.355. Seventh —Anoka, Benton, Crow Wing, Morrison, Sheiburne, Meeker, Steams, Todd, Wright. Population, 179,193. Eighth—Aitkin, BeJtrami, Carlton, Cass, Chisago, Cood, Itasca, Kanabec, Lake, Mille Lacr, Pine, St. Louis, Isanti. Pop ulation, 177,615. Ninth—Becker, Clay, Hubbard, Xittson, Marshall, Norman, Polk, Red Lake, Roseau, Wadena, Wilkin, Otter Tail. Pop ulation, 193,521. Still another plan is given, and it makes the districts nearly the same size in point of population, but is deficient In the matter of lailroad communication. It it this: First District—Houston, Fiilmore, Mow er, Freeborn, Winona, Olmsted, Dodge, Steele, Wabasha, total population, 195.-521. Second District—Waseca, Bine Earth, Faribault, Martin, Watonwan, Cotton wood, Jackson, Nobles," Rock, Murray, Brown, total population, 189,986. Third District — Goodhue, Rice, Le Sueur, Dakota, Scott, Carver. McLe id, Sibley, Nicol'.et, Hennepin (half of coun ty), total population, 195,066. Fourth District—Ramsey, Washington, tctal population J08,362; Republican ma jority, 2,'toZ. Fifth District—Hennepin (half of coun ty), total population, 202,732. Sixth District—Cook. Lake, St. Louis, Carlton. Pino, Itasca, Aitkin. Kanabec, MilleLacs, Morrison, Benton, Isanti, Chi sago, total population. 192,281. Seventh District — Pipestone, Linco'.n. Lyon, Redwood, Yellow Medicine, Lac ciui Parle. Chippewa, Swift, Big S^one, Stevens. Grant, Traverse, Wilkin, Otter Tail, total population, 192.4C0.

Ninth District—Todd, Cas?, Wader, a, Hubbard, Beltrami. Crow Wing. Becker, Clay, Norman, Polk, Red Lake, Marshall, Kittson, Roseau, total population, U4,b37. Patriotic. Washington Stax. There is a five-year-old boy in Massa chusetts averiue who is of the blood of patriots. His grandfather was in both the Mexican and Civil wars, and his father was also a I'nion :/.uier, conse quently the liUle fellow has heard much "flag" talk in his short life and has ex alted ideas of its protective qualities. He was the baby of the family till very re cently, and occupied a crib bed in his mother's room. When the new baby came Harold was put to sleep in a rcom adjoining his mother's, and as he had never slept alone before, his small soul was Tilled with nameless fears which he was too proud to tell in full. "It's mighty lonesome in here, mam ma,' 1 he culled the first night after he had been tucked in his little white bed. "Just remember the angels are near you and caring for you," replied mamma from the outer room. "But, mamma," he objected, "I am t acquainted with any angels, and I'd be scared of them if they came rustling round, same as I would of any other stranger." "Now, Harold, you must pro to sleep quietly; nothing will hurt you." "Can't 1 have the gas lighted in here? 1' "No, mamma doesn't think it neces sary, and it is not healthy." There was silence for some time, and then the small voice piped up again. "Oh, mamma!" "Yes, dear." "May I have grandpa's flag?" "Why, what for? I want you to go right to sleep." "Please, mamma!" and a small night gowned figure appeared at the door. "Just let me slick the flag up at the head of my bed, and then I'll go right to sleep —Indeed I will! You know the other night grandpa said at the meeting- that 'un der the protecting folds of tho flaa: the weakest would be safe,' and I feel mighty weak, mamma." He got the flag, and when his mother looked in on him an hour later he wa«? . fast asleep, with a fat little fist under his red cheek, holding fast the end of the "protecting" flag.

Catherine ('ihmulik, of London. The task which Murray Hall set herself has attracted many women before her. Most of them have gained a certain Fort of posthumous fame thereby. In this fact nr.ay perhaps bo found Murray Hall's motive, says the New York World. But she had no. iconfidants. This must be speculation. There is a very large clas* of these cares which are due to a dis eased brain or perhaps to a defective brain. I refer to the cases of women who are born with a masculine mind, a mm.l that endows', its possessor with all the masculine tastes and desires. It has been estimated by those who have studied the subject very carefully that one woman in 720 is thus affected. She has the, mind of a man engrafted into the body or, a woman. Her tastes are all masculine* This frequently leads to grave mental disease. The opposite* o£>this condition—the man with tastes of the opposite sex—is more common tb_an the former. Krafft-Ebling, the great German psychologist, who has made a very., careful study of these un fortunates, has, I believe, estimated that in civilized cities one man among 330 is the proportion of these. He also states that this condition is on the increase, and that it seems to increase as civilization advances. These unfortunate people, who must be looked on as insane, have existed for a? long a period as we have any authentic record?. Rome and Greece, in the days of their greatest glory, furnished many ex amples. In history the most prominent, of course, is that of Sappho. The cases that have been carried out to their successful termination. " where the motive was of .the highest, have bjen examples of the noblest heroism possib'e for human beings to reach. The splendid acting, the, unspeakable hardships over come, all Indicate a determination that seems superhuman. . Of all the women who have played the part of men and died, playing it, the Countess Sarolta Vay Is one of the most famous. .: •■.■..'/; :.!: The countess was an Austrian girl and attained celetirity some ten years ago. She was the daughter of a colonel, who, having: a large family of daughters, brought up Sarolta as a boy. Her girl hood was passed in Pesth, where fhe visited cafe? in man's clothing and drank and smoked with journalists and officers. She published"", a book of poems under the name of, Candor, and appeared for the first time, in uniform shortly previous to the time when her family first tried to dissuade her from continuing her dis guise. She refused, however, and was next heard of as a-suitor for the daughter of a school teacher in Klagenfurt. She was known thereias Count Sandor Vay, anl as such married the young woman, Marie Engelhardt. i The swindle was shortly discovered, but nr>t until after the count had squandered ; a good share of her "wile's" money;. One woman, as tradition goes, once succeeded even in becoming pope of Rome. Modern^nvestigation, however, discredits the story. The heroine bt this astonishing tale was "Pope Jean," an English girl born in France, *~ho,i for love of a young monk assumed mascujine dress and en tered a monastery. Later the two fled the monastery, the monk died, ami Mis tress Joan, sfll in disguise, won for her self a pretty reputation as a scholar and lecturer. In Rome her prestige became so great that in 655 A D., on the death of I.co IV., the beardless priest was chosen his successor under the name of John VIII. Two years five months and four days she held sway over Christen dom when she cieri. The Chevalier D'Eon forms one of the On $10.00 Worth of Goods $1,00 Down and 50c a Week.

The Chevalier happened to be a man, but that fact did not stand in his way "When an important question of diplomacy came up. The Chevalier was attached to the court of Louis XV., of France. The king- wanted a diplomatic agent to send to the court of the empress of Rus sia. Unfortunately—because the king knew no woman sufficiently gilttd— the agent must be a woman. The Chevalier came to the ie.=cue, and with marvelous facility transformed him self into one of the most charming lad.es either court had ever se?n. Tha mission vfas successfully accomplished, for the astutest of the Russians could not pene trate this remarkable dirgulse. Catherine Coombs, of London, is one of the few among these phenomenal women who is still alive. She is now sixty-five years old and is a resident of the West Ham poor nous?, London. For forty-three years she was known as Charles Wil-on, and practiced the trade of mural ramting and decoiat ing-. Nor would her altogether blameless masquerade ever have been discovered probably had not "Charles Wilson" been injured by a fall and obliged to go to an institution because no longer able to support herself. Hazleton, Pa., still boasts of a former citizen, whose real name was Mrs. Pie tro Loganani, but who long worked in the coal mines in masculine guise. New York alone has furnished many such instances. Many people remember, for instance, Bessie Fincgold, who of a sudden began to assume male attire, took a wife and was thenceforward known under the name of Max. One furtKer disguised woman has suc cessfully carried out her scheme among the Pennsylvania miners. Her name was Mrs. Julia Forest. She was distinguished from many other sub jects of these interesting experiments in being of good birth, the daughter of an Episcopalian clergyman, well educated, attractive in person and manners. At sixteen Julia eloped with a miner, who afterward became injured and was una ble to work. Shortly it was known in the mine that John Forest, a cousin of Julia, had taken her husband's place in the mines. For a long time she had practiced this innocent deception and earned the money to sup port her sick husband and her children. For twenty years Mrs. Jane Westover was the town barber of Marlborough, Conn. The best class of citizens would be shaved by no one else than this gen tle expert with the razor, who haS come to town one day in a man's coat, trou sers and derby hat, and vr'no never changed her style of dress. One curious characteristic of women who array themselves as men is that they almost invariably have the gift of making other women fall in love with them This was the case with Tony Leeea, who succeeded In arousing the In terest of almost every young woman em ployed in the big hat factory of John T. Waring, in Yonkers. But the inevitable befell Tony. He—or she, if you will, fell in love. And while the factory girls were still excitedly wondering which of them he preferred, announcement came of Tony's marriage and assumption of her proper sex. For twenty years Private Joigensen, late of the Victorian rifles, led a most extraordinary career. Though in reality a woman, her sex was never" suspected. So anxious was she to maintain her as sumed character that she frequently made love to girls, whom she promised to marry, but whom in each case she sooner or later deserted. The muster rolls of the armies of ttie Rebellion show a number of cases of sol diers who were discovered to be women. Doubtless there were many suspected. In Fox's "Regimental Losses" the following instances are given. Forty-sixth Pennsylvania, Company D, "Charles D. Fuller," detected as being a female; discharged. On e Hundred and Twenty-sixth Penn sylvania, Company F, "Sergeant Frank Mayne," deserted Aug. 24, 1862; subse quently killed in battle in another regi ment and discovered to be a woman; real name Frances Day. Second Michigan, Company F, "FTank lin Thompson;" deserted. Charges of de sertion removed by house committee on military affairs, Washington, Feburary, ISB7, the soldier having had a good rec ord and fought well In several battles, but proved to be a woman; real name. Miss Seelye. Twenty-eighth North Carolina (C. S. A.)i Company F, "Mr3\ L. M. Blaylock," enlisted March 20, 1861; discharged for being a woman. One of the most remarkable cases on record of a woman warrior, who passed for a man and fought like one, is that of Christian Cavenagh. She lived in Eng land in the last century. She was mar ried and had three children. Her hus band, after the humane methods of the time, was kidnaped and carried off to Holland. There he had to enlist as a private soldier. Christian, hearing this^ dressed as a man and enlisted as a private soldier to be near her husband. She was wounded at th« battle of Lan den, made prisoner by the French and was carried to St. Germain-en-Laye, where she remained until she was ex changed. She quarreled with her sergeant, fought a duel with him and was transferred to another regiment. Again she was wound ed at Ramillies. While in the hospital there her secret was discovered. She was, however, permitted to remain with the regiment as a cook. Many English army officers who are still alive recall the case of "Dr. James Barry," as the lady was called. Fifty years ago her successful disguise was a current topic for gossip in the English army. An army surgeon had served suc cessively at the Cape, at Malta and the Barbados. This person was small, thin, wrinkled, with strong vegetarian opin ions. At the Cape he fought a duel with an officer who had called him a woman. Mrs. Lindley, the wife of a soldier, her self a soldier, went through some of the sharpest engagements of the Civil War disguised as a man. Mr. and Mr?. Lindley had been married only a few months when the bridegroom was called to serve and enlisted in Com pany D, Sixth Ohio cavalry. At Yorktown Mrs. Lindley, who had taken the name of "Tommy," was under fire for the first time. She bore It well, showing none of the nervousness of her sex. She was successively in the battles of Fort Magruder, Hanover C. H., Bull Run, Antletam and Boonesboro—some of the bloodiest fights of the war. She is still living, the mother of several children. Louise Watson, an English woman by birth, the child of wealthy parents, took off skirts at the age of eighteen because she wanted to, and putting on man's clothing, went to London. Mary Anne Talbot was sent to the West Indies as foot-boy to a Capt. Bow en. She was known as John Taylor. The captain was shot, and Miss Talbot went from drummer to cabin-boy and powder monkey and steward on an At lantic ship. She gained the love of a woman and left her broken hearted. Later she fell in a fight in London, was caught by the police, and only escaped by acknowledging herself to be a woman. Christina, Queen of Sweden, was edu cated and dressed like a boy from her birth because her father was disappoint ed at not having a son. She was more a king than a queen, and after four years of rule she resigned the crown and went off to amuse herself in Europe. She was dressed in man's clothes and acted as uproariously as any man who ever owned his clothes by right of sex. She was only twenty-eight at this time. Mrs. Christian Welsh put on a suit of her husband's clothes and followed him to Flanders, whltiber he had gone to join the army. She was so notoriously profligate in 'her behavior that she was accused of being the father of a child. In order to keep up her disguise she admitted this disgrace, and even supported the child and its mother. A young Venetian, Tonlana Marlnello, fought through Garibaldi's campaigns, where stfie passed as the brother of the man who was her husband. She was a brave soldier, so fearless that nothing seemed to touch her, and at the end of the war was decorated for bravery. Mary East gave up the feminine role because her lover was fcanged for rob bery. She changed her name to James How, and kept a public House in part nership with a woman, who passed as her wife.

A CAUSE OF HEADACHE. One Very Common Cause, Generally Overlooked. Headache is a symptom, an indication 01 derangement or disease in -or.c or gan, and the cause of the headache is d;mcuk to locate because so many dis eases have headache as a promn nt symptom; derangement of Ih 3 stomach end liver, heart trouble, kidney disease lung trouble, eye strain or 111-iittln~ glasses all produce headaches and if we could always locate the organ which is at fault the cure of obstmte head aches would be a much simpler mat ter. However, for that form of headache called frontal headache, pain bark of the eyes and in forehead, the cause is now known to be catarrh of the head and throat; when the headache is located in rack of head and neck It is often caused from catarrh of the stomach or liver. At any rate catarrh is the moat com mon cause of such headaches and. the cure of the catarrh causes a prompt dis appearance of the headaches. There is at present no treatment for catarrh so convenient and effective as Stuart's Catarrh Tablets, a new Internal remedy In tablet form, composed of anti septics like Eucalyptol, Guaiacol and Elood Root which act upon the blood and cause the elimination of the catarrhal poison from the system through the nat ural channels. Miss Cora Ainsley, a prominent school teacher In one of our normal schools, speaks of her experience with catarrhal headaches and eulogizes Stuart's Catarrh Tablets as a cure for them. She says: "I Buffered daily from severe frontal headache and pain In and back of the eyes, at times co Intensely a3 to in capacitate me In my daily duties. I had suffered from catarrh, more or less for years, but never thought It was the cause of my headaches, but finally became convinced that such was the case because the headaches were always worse when ever I had a cold or fresh attack of ca tarrh. "Stuart's Catarrh Tablets were highly recommended to me as a safe and pleas ant catarrh cure and after using a few 60-cent boxes which I procured from my druggists I was surprised and delighted to find that both the catarrh and head aches had gone for good." Stuart's Catarrh Tablets are sold by druggists at 50 cents per package, under the guarantee of the proprietors that they contain absolutely no cocalr.e (found in bo many catarrh cures) no opium (so common In cheap cough cures) nor any harmful drug. They contain simply the wholesome an lseptlea necessary to destroy and drive from the system the germs of catarrhal disease.
