VERY GAMP MAY
HAS PASSED AWAY
Last Month Was One of the
Rainiest in Thirty-Two
Years.
Yesterday closed one of the rainiest
Mays on record. It stands fifth among
the rainiest during the past thirty-two
years. The total precipitation during
the month was 5.28, which closely ap
proaches the top notch, which is 7.18,
the record of May, 1879.
The rains, though inconvenient to city
people, have proven a blessing to the
farmer, as is evidenced by the grass
r.nd other growths, over a foot high.
The foliage of the trees is rich and
abundant. The landscape of the coun
try looks more beautiful this year than
for many years past, and is in strik
ing contrast to the appearance of the
country at this time last year, for dur
ing the month of May, 1902, the total
titation was only .34.
What the weather of June will be
cannot be foretold, even by the aver
ages computed by the weather bureau
from records of the past thirty-two
years. Unofficial prophets, however,
stake their reputation on predicting
warm weather and plenty of it, with
probably a small amount of rain.
Line cf Least Resistance.
Everybody naturally takes the line of
least resistance—that' is the direction in
which he meets with the least opposition.
"We all want to "take things easy," and
the articles that make things easier for us
are the ones that meet the demand. The
newspaper contributes to the world's ease
by making known the easy things in ev
ery line. Take, for example, the latest
"easy novelty*'—the "easy medicine"—
Cascarets, Candy Cathartic, easy to buy.
easy . a#y to gfoe children, easy
to carry and easy in their action. Medi
cine-g-ivlng and taking used to be a hard
ship, but the ease-loving world progresses.

FOUR-YEAR-OLD BOY
IS KILLED IN A
RUNAWAY
Ervin Waldrow, Son of
Farmer on South Robert
Street Road, While Out
Driving With Parents Is
Thrown From Vehicle and
Dies in Half an Hour,
Ervin Waldrow, the four-year-old
son of August Waldrow, a farmer on
the South Robert street road, in Da
kota county, three and a half miles
below St. Paul, was killed yesterday
afternoon about 4 o'clock by being
thrown from a carriage in which he
was riding with the rest of the fam
ily. The fatal accident occurred in
the barn yard of the farm, and was
caused by an abrupt turn made by the
horse, which had been running madly
for over half a mile.
August Waldrow, Mrs. Waldrow and
their two children, one of whom was
the boy killed, and the other an elder
brother, were in the buggy on their
way home from a visit to town. When
within half a mile of home the horse
started to run at a furious speed, and
Mr. Waldrow says he was unable to
check the animal. The road is rough
and at a point forty rods from the
farm, turning a curve abruptly, Mr.
Waldrow was thrown from his seat
and alighted upon his head, receiving
a deep scalp wound which rendered
him unconscious.
The horse continued to run with the
other three persons in the buggy, and
as it turned into the barn yard through
the gate, little Ervin Avas thrown from
his seat. He struck his chest upon the
wheel and fell upon his head on the
ground. The boy was instantly picked
up by Mrs. Waldrow, who jumped from
the vehicle when the horse stopped,
and assisted him into the house. He
did not lose consciousness, and was
able to walk and lay himself on the
bed.
Died in Half an Hour.
The boy, as soon as he laid himself
ddwn, became delirious, and within
thirty minutes expired. Dr. A. M.
Johnson, of West St. Paul, was sent
for, but the boy was dead before he
could reach the farm. The man go
ing for the doctor had a mad run to
town and back. After an exciting ride
he reached the farm within a remark
ably short time, but death had come
before they arrived.
Dr. Johnson devoted his attention to
Mr. Waldrow, who was severely hurt.
After having fallen on the road he
staggered to his feet, but was unable
to retain his balance, falling again to
the ground. After several unsuccess-
ful attempts to rise, his son, who had
escaped injury, came to his assistance
and led him to the house.
Mr. Waldrow received a deep scalp
wound and was stunned by the fall,
but otherwise was not badly injured.
Coroner Kramer, of Dakota county,
was summoned, and viewed the re
mains of the dead child. Death was
caused by concussion of the brain
and internal injuries.
PEACEFUL PICNIC
AT HARRIS PARK
Sons of Herrmann Enjoy Themselves
in an Orderly Manner.
The annual picnic of Columbia lodge,
Sons of Herrmann, was held yesterday
at Harris' Fort Snelling park. The*
chilly atmosphere and threatening
weather was responsible for a small
attendance, and there were not more
than 200 present.
There were no disturbances on the
Fort Snelling cars yesterday, as the
officials of the Twin City Rapid Tran
sit company insisted that the conduct
ors preserve order on the electric
trains. Instructions were issued to al
low under no circumstances a recur
rence of last Sunday's disgraceful con
duct. The men in charge of the cars
were told to put a stop to all quarrels
and to eject the disturbers.
At the park the best of order was
maintained. A squad of police was
present, and while there were some
minor disturbances, there were no gen
eral free-for-all encounters. Lieut.

tailed to assist Lieut. Budy in pre
serving order.

FISHHOOK CATCHES
MAN'S CORPSE IN
THE RIVER
Body of Albert Lindberg, a
Laundry Driver, Is Fished
Out of the Mississippi by
Andrew Johnson—Circum
stances Point to a Case of
Suicide.
The body of Albert Lindberg, 914
Euclid street, was caught while float
ing in the river yesterday morning by
Andrew Johnson, 579 Grove street, who
was fishing on the bank below the
union depot, near Schlitz Brewing
company's warehouse on the levee.
Johnson had thrown his line far out
into the stream and the hook caught
firmly on what he first thought to be
a snag. Johnson says he tried to jerk
the hook loose but without success.
Finding that the object caught yielded
to his jerking, he pulled on the line
and soon the body of a man was seen
through the water. Horrified, John
son dropped his line.
"I never felt like that before," sai/
he. "I thought I'd run away; I got
scared, but then I made up my mind
to pull it in."
The body was viewed by Coroner
Miller, who ordered it taken to the
county morgue. It proved to be that
of Albert Lindberg, a driver in the
employ of the Model Steam laundry.
The body was identified at the morgue
by Lindberg's wife and brother-in
law, Andrew Nygren, 909 Hudson
street.
A post mortem over the remains last
evening showed that death was due to
drowning. It is supposed that Lind
berg jumped or fell into the river some
time Saturday night or early Sunday
morning. The body was not yet in a
state of rigor mortis when taken from
the water, and it appeared that the
man had not been dead over ten hours
when his body was found.
Missing Since Saturday Morning.
Lindberg had been missing since 10
o'clock Saturday morning, when he
left his team, which he drives for the
laundry, at the barn and went away.
When he left home Saturday morning
at 6:30 o'clock he acted the same as
usual. He went to the barn, got his
horse, reported at the office, made a
round and returned to the barn used by
the laundry at 10 o'clock. He left the
place without saying anything, and
was not seen again.
When he did not come home as usual in
the evening his wife grew alarmed
and sent her brother to the Margaret
street police station to inquire whether
he had been arrested. Lindberg had
been a heavy drinker, and his wife
feared that he had gotten into trouble.
The man was not at the Margaret
station and inquiry was made at the
central station, but he was not found.
Had Threatened to Kill Himself.
Mrs. Lindberg said yesterday that
her husband had frequently threatened
to end his life, but had not, as far
as she knew, made any attempt at sui
cide.
"Friday night he seemed downcast,"
said she, and remarked that he 'might
as well be dead as not,' and he also fre
quently remarked, 'I have nothing to
live for, and I may drop away at any
time.' Though these remarks distress
ed me I did not think that he would
end his life."
Lindberg was thirty-nine years old
and had liyed in St. Paul since 1886.
He was In the employ of the Model
Steam laundry for sixteen years. He
was married four and a half years ago
and leaves a family consisting of his
wife and three small boys, the oldest of
whom is three years and nine months
and the youngest a baby in arms.
Lindberg had no other known relatives.
He was a member of Ramsey council.
Royal Arcanum.
Coroner Miller, after an investiga
tion, decided that an inquest was un
necessary. Circumstances point strong
ly to suicide. The man had a large
amount of small change, and there
were no marks of violence on his body.
RAILWAY EXPRESSMEN
HOLD OPEN MEETING
They Enjoy a Prpgramme of Songs and
Encouraging Addresses.
Th« Railway Expressmen's union
held an open meeting yesterday even
ing- at Federation hall, and a pro
gramme of speeches and songs was
heard. The occasion was strictly in
formed, and J. F. Krieger, secretary
and general organizer of the St. Paul
Trades and Labor assembly, addressed
the expressmen. Their union is, as
yet, very young, but in the most thriv
ing condition, and Mr. Krieger's re
marks were filled with advice and en
couragement.
E. A. Fitzgerald, of the Railway
Trainmen's brotherhood, also told the
gathering of many difficulties that were
certain to be met with during the work
of organization. He counciled caution,
saying that precipitation had been the
death of more orders, unions, brother
hoods and organizations of every de
scription than any other factor.
A MARKED STEP IN THE DIREC
TION OF TRUE TEMPERANCE.
The decanter with strong intoxicants,
which from the earliest history of our
country was found in almost every
home, in the cupboard of the humblest
cottage, or on the sideboard of the
mansion, is practically a thing of the
past, and is a marked step in the direc
tion of True Temperance. This is most
ly attributable to the introduction of
and the now universal use of bottled
beers in households.
In the early seventies the Anheuser-
Busch Brewing Ass'n began bottling
beer under the pasteurizing system,
and were the first to bottle beer for
export successfully. Always following*
their motto in brewing, "Not how
cheap, but how good," and constantly
on the alert to secure the most modern
machinery and applying the best meth
ods for bottling, the venture proved a
wonderful success. From a small be
ginning their business rapidly increas
ed, so that during the year 1902 the
consumption of Budweiser alone reach
ed the fabulous figure of 3,790,300 bot
tles and proves conclusively that this
wholesome and refreshing beverage has
become the accepted American drink.
Budweiser is the Standard of Qual
ity, and the greatest proof of its

EAGLES ENJOY '
A JOLLY PICNIC
St. Paul Aerie and Friends
Journey to Jordan far
an Outing.
The failure of Fred Schiffmann to
win the prize waltz did not detract in
the least from the success of the an
nual picnic of the St. Paul aerie of
Eagles, held at Jordan, Minn., yester
day. Something like 2,000 Eagles and
their friends were there and enjoyed
one of the moat pleasant events of the
season. With perfect weather, the
trainloads of people from St. Paul,
along with the hundreds from Jordan
and the surrounding country, dedicated
the new picnic grounds, and at the
same time gave the Eagles an oppor
tunity to boast that theirs had been
one of the most orderly picnics attend
ed by St. Paul' people this season.
There was not the least disturbance to
mar the pleasure of the day.
Two heavily loaded trains carried the
St. Paul people to the picnic. One left
in the forenoon and another In the aft
ernoon, and both were loaded to the
guards. On the grounds the crowd was
well cared for. Up in the new dancing
pavilion Fred Schiffmann sold tickets
at 10 cents each, while George Hart
counted the money at the refreshment
stand.
The athletic events, hotly contested,
were most interesting.
In the fat men's 100-yard dash
Charles Schmidt, of Jordan, distanced
all competitors, and won a fancy vest.
The winner of the race for girls under
thirteen years was Mamie Schmidt, of
Jordan, who beat out half a dozen oth
er girls in a close finish. J. Osterhout,
of St. Paul, won the hop, step and
jump, and Herbert Osterhout was de
clared the winner of the running broad
jump.
In the seventy-five-yard dash for
women Helen Galbraith, of St. Paul,
won, and secured a prize of a new
dress, and Jerry fffltlivan was handed
the special prise of $5 for having driv
en the longest distance to attend the
picnic.
Much interest centered In the prixe
dances, there toeing; many contestants
in both the waltz and two-step. 1
The winners of the waltz were F. W.
Whipker and Miss Lou Blair, while the
first prize in the two-step was awarded
to O. D. Bishop anid Goldie Mains. Miss
Clara Ludlngsou, of St. Paul, was also
awarded a prize of a dozen American
Beauty roses for her dancing.
The picnickers returned to St Paul
late last night.
Final Arguments This Week.
Upon his return, from Winona to St.
Paul Judge Lochnen will make ar
rangements for hearing the final ar
guments in the case of the state
against the Northern Securities com
pany. Because of hia inability to be
in St. Paul before Tuesday night, on
account of being in Winona on that
day to open the court there, no date
has as yet been fixed but it Is thought
that either June 4 or 5 will be chosen.
The testimony has already been filed
with the clerk of the United States
circuit court.
Run Over by Fire Chief's Buggy.
Clifford Reid, 410 1-8 Jackson street,
was run over by Chief Jackson's buggy
yesterday afternoon. The man was
crossing the street and stepped in front
of the horse before the chief could avert
the accident.
MISSISSIPPI IS
STILL ON THE RISE
Father of Waters Is Gradu
ally Creeping Up on the
Levee.
The water of the Mississippi river
at St. Paul, which has remained at a
high stage for over two weeks has
risen several notches higher. The
water has now crept up nearly twenty
feet on the steamboat landing.
A week ago the water receded slight
ly from the position it had then reach
ed, but the heavy rains in the central
portion of the state, especially in the
Minnesota valley, have added greatly
to the volume of water.
Though distressing reports continue
to come from the lower Mississippi val
ley on account of the high water, it
will have to rise several feet more at
this point before it will cause any
damage.
The quantity of water In the Min
nesota river has caused that usually
narrow stream to spread out like a
lake, covering the bottom lands and
submerging pastures and meadows.
Withdraws His Accusation.
After charging William O'Brien with
stealing his watch and causing the ar
rest of O'Brien early yesterday morn
ing, William McGuire was himself ar
rested, charged with disorderly con
duct. When he was brought to the
central station he told Capt. Hanft that
O'Brien did not steal his watch. Both
will be in police court this morning.
Payne Avenue Cars Hard to Escape.
John D. and Frank O. Anderson, of
Anderson Bros.' meat market, while
driving on Payne avenue, between
Whitehall and Welsh streets, in their
buggy yesterday afternoon, narrowly
escaped serious injury by being struck
by a street car. The car struck the
buggy, bending the axel and smashing
several spokes in the wheels. The oc
.cupants escaped without injury.

JURY ACCEPTS
INSANITY PLEA
Finds Stegald Not Guilty on
Charge of Murder at
Sioux Falls.
Special to The Globe.
SIOUX FALLS, S. D., May 31.—"We,
the jury in the case of the State
against Henry Stegald, find the de
fendant not guilty, on the grounds that
he was Insane at the time the act was
committed."
After being out two and a half
hours the jury in the state circuit
court in this city brought in the above
verdict, which ends a case which has
attracted wide interest.
Stegald was indicted for the murder,
on Feb. 27 last, of Frank Bowen, grain
buyer at the little town of Benclare,
east of Sioux Falls, where Stegald at
the time was agent for the Illinois
Central Railroad company. It was
shown at the trial that Bowen, who
was a large man and of a quarrelsome
disposition, had threatened the life of
Stegald, who is slight of stature and
of exceedingly nervous temperament.
Before the shooting Stegald told his
wife that if he did not kill Bowen, the
latter would kill him. Under the cir-
cumstances the verdict of the jury Is
generally approved. At 9 o'clock to
morrow It will be determined what
disposition to make of Stegald. Rela
tives living In Southern Illinois have
offered to care for him, and he will
probably be turned over to them.

charges by Maj. Hunter that Maj. Horoze
cruelly treated natives at LaVaj, Island

was provost marshal at that point at the
time says the charge cannot be true, as
Horoze "is one of the most gallant and

bravery and efficiency aroused petty jeal
ousy at the time. Duncan has written the

them.
Parrot Spoke Thr«« Tongue*.
Jocco, the gray African parrot,
which was the pride of the establish
ment of Louis Rune & Sons, of New
York, has been sold. A Philadelphian
bought him for $600, probably the
highest price ever paid for a parrot in
this country. Jacco was a linguist.
He could talk and sing in three lan
guages. English, French and German.
He also was something of a conver
sationalist, and Bernard Ruhe, at
whose home Jacco was kept, used to
find the bird as entertaining as many
human beings.
Jacco came to this country when
he was a fledgling, twelve years ago.
When he arrived along with a large
consignment, he was the poorest spe
cimen of the lot. Bernard R£he was
afraid he would die and took the sick
ly little stranger to his home. TJJie
bird was fed out of a spoon, and be
came as tame as a chicken. Now he
is said to be the most highly educated
bird in the world.

that the notorious "Toronto Jimmy."
who has been confined here since Jan.
4, had escaped from the Olmsted
county jail during the night. Also
Charles Reynolds who is waiting trial
on the charge of burglary. It is the
chief topic of conversation and was
a very clever piece of work. It could
not have been successful without the
aid of accomplices who gained entrance
through a grate window into the main
corridor which surrounds the cells.
Once In here they released the two
prisoners from their cells by manipu
lating the levers from the outside cor
ridor. Drills were passed to them
through the grate which In the hands
of Toronto Jimmy soon gave them their
liberty. He cut off the two bolts
which held the padlock and in a short
time they were fugitives from justice.
The plans were so carefully made
and carried out that the first intima
tion that they had escaped was learn
ed this morning when the turn-key
went to give them breakfast.
Toronto Jimmy, or Jas. Johnson, as
he calls himself, was arraigned before
Judge Snow January 5, on the charge
of grand larceny in the first degree
and burglary in the third degree, as
being connected with the burglarizing
of the Dover, Minn., bank about three
years ago. He pleaded not guilty to
both charges and was remanded to jail
to await the term of court which con
venes June 9. He was a handsome
looking individual aged 30 years; five
feet ten and one-half inches high and
weighed 190 pounds. He had dark
chestnut hair, keen brown eyes, a scar
above the right eye-brow. He is sriid
to be a pal of Mrs. O'Neil who is no\r

this county for robbery.
Charles Reynolds, who escaped with
Toronto Jimmy, was awaiting trial on
the charge of burglarizing a hardware
store at Stewartville. this county. He
