LAYS CORNER STONE OF NEW MI ZION TEMPLE Chairman Frankel of Con gregation's Building As sociation Performs Cere mony at Holly Avenue and Arundel Street — Rabbis Hess, Rypins and Deinard Address the Assemblage The laying of the corner stone of the new temple of the Mount Zion Hebrew congregation, Holly avenue and Avon street, yesterday afternoon was attended by impressive ceremo nies. The temple stands on the southeast corner of the street crossings, and the beautiful, large stone laid yesterday occupies a conspicuous place at the northwest corner of the building. The stone bears the inscription: "Founded 1557. Erected 1903." In a solid copper receptacle, which was imbedded in the mortar beneath the piece of granite, were placed by Ja cob Dittenhofer, president of the con gregation, copies of all the St. Paul papers, together with several Hebrew publications. The official laying of the stone was performed by Max Frankel, chairman of the building association of the con gregation. Rabbi E. L. Hess, who delivered the introductory address, said in part: "Grace and glory to the Lord for permitting us to live and gather here to lay a corner stone to His glorifi cation today. Yea! grace and glory unto Him by whose support we have learned to withstand the onslaught of the centuries. Coubly may we give praise unto Him, for this, today, is a renewal of the covenant made by our fathers in the East 3,000 years ago. Must Look to the West for Peace. "Time was when all men said proud ly: 'Ex Oriente lux!' but the tables have turned. Here in the growing splendor of this young and free re public we can build for ourselves tem ples and no man molest us. Today in the East our brethren are being slain by hundreds, and from here to there the aid is now going. The tables have turned. From the East now comes darkness! From the West must come the hospitality and the peace. To the sufferers who have never tasted of the lotus buds of white winged peace, and freedom, and lib erty unbounded, we cannot do less than give of the substance this land has granted us. "Poor did the Jew come to this land of the free, but he has prospered. His every effort has been crowned with success. Let us not forget those who suffer and die for the sacred faith across the waste of waters. "And now, in conclusion, let me say that in leaving that little temple, across the way from our city high school, for the spacious grandeur of this, let us not forget that the little old place has been to us a mother, a friend, the home of our religion and the earthly embodiment of our hopes. Let us not forget!" Dr. I. L. Rypins, in his short ad dress, said in part: "This, my friends, is a day of con gratulation. We are not only building an earthly temple—we are building a temple that shall rear its walls spirit ually as well as materially. It is to be a monument to the vicissitudes of time, the checkered career of persecution and the world wide wanderings of our people. To us this Western world is to be a new tenure of life. We are building anew in this Western world and this Western plase and this West ern time! But while our outward surroundings are new, we are erecting on the -solid foundation of the good old religion, building on the truth and the promises that have been our holy heritage for three thousand years! "And God is ever with us, and watching us today laying this corner stone; for we are building on the cor ner stone of the principles of Judaism and the consecrated Brotherhood of Man. Not Building in a Boastful Spirit. "And why are we building this tem ple? It is not that the old was not sufficiently commodious, we never had to place chairs in the aisles. It is not In a spirit of boastfulness or vain gloriousness, for we do not wajit no toriety. We are building it in the true spirit of the Jewish faith the first principle of which is to pursue the way quietly, surely and fearlessly. We are transplating the dominant spirit of the good old time —the tree of Judaism; and the fount of this tree shall yet quench the thirst of the world. "We bless the land In which we live, this land in which we can preach our perfect faith. And I would have you satiate yourselves in this perfect faith which preaches 'one perfect God and perfect conduct in life.' The simplest religion that exists! "Though every manner of ingenious attack has been brought to bear upon us, though cruel potentates have per secuted, and though the more re fined and specious sort of prejudices bears heavily upon our people, though the fruits of tyranny be our lot we will not falter. And the time is surely to come when the perfect faith, the true religion shall prevail; when peace shall sit crowned beneath her own fig tree, even as our father, Moses, led his people from the wilderness. "I congratulate you, my people, may peace and plenty be yours, and may God's blessing rest upon this temple of ours and the faith of which it is the outward and visible sign." Dr. Rypins was followed by RabbT S. N. Deinard, Minneapolis, who spoke of the fact that this was a doubly blessed and sacred occasion for the congregation of Mt, Zion. Together with the corner stone cere monial was combined the ceremony of the Feast of Weeks, the anniversary of the occasion of the giving of the laws to Moses upon Mount Sinai, bet ter known as Penticost. He told of how earnest was his wish that his con gregation of Minneapolis might soon be enabled to perform the ceremony of laying such a corner stone—the cor ner stone of Judaism. With the benediction pronounced by Dr. Ryplns the assemblage dispersed. Federal Grand Jury Drawn. Grand jurors for the federal term of court which opens at Winona today have been drawn as follows: B.

Berling is employed as a clerk by Edward Erickson, 632 Bedford street, and was taken to Be thesda hospital some weeks ago, when he was seized with a se vere attack of pneumonia. At the hospital he met Miss Carl son, and it was a case of love at first sight. The pretty nurse was at his side almost constant ly, and it was due to her untir ing efforts that the young man recovered. A few days ago Ber ling was permitted to leave the hospital, but it was not until he had the promise of Miss Carlson to become his wife as soon as the necessary arrangements for a place to live could be made. A house was secured and fur nished, and yesterday the happy couple secured a marriage li cense, and were married last evening. SEEKS TO REMOVE KEEPER OF MORGUE County Commissioner Gray Introduces Resolution but Withdrew It. Commissioner Gray, at a meeting of the county board yesterday, intro duced a resolution calling for the at> pointment of a new keeper of the county morgue, to succeed W. DeLacey Richardson, whose term of office ex pires June 7. This was the first in timation that there was to be any candidate for the position aside from Mr. Richardson, who has filled the po sition several years, and the resolu tion was objected to by members of the board who wanted some farther light thrown on the matter. The resolution offered by Commis sioner Gray called for the appointemnt of William M. Pursell as successor to Richardson. None of the members ap peared to know who Mr. Pursell was, and Mr. Gray did not take the pains to enlighten them. Commissioner Pottgeiser was one of the members opposed to the railroading through of a resolution dismissing an official who has served the county as long as Mr. Richardson. "I don't understand this business, and I am not one who will vote to turn a man out simply because he has had a little personal trouble with a mem ber of the county board. He should be given a show." Commissioner Gray admitted that the present incumbent should be given an opportunity to defend himself, and withdrew the resolution temporarily. Mr. Gray explained that Mr. Pursell was an old soldier and that he had, at times, been in the undertaking busi ness in St. Paul and Minneapolis. Mr. Richardson denied that he had had any trouble of any kind with Commissioner Gray, or any other mem ber of the county board, and he was at a loss to know why such a resolu tion should be introduced at the meeting. _ ECZEMA, NO CURE.

FROZEN FEET MAKE JOHN WILSON INSANE Is Held at County Jail Pending Communi- cation With Relatives. Marshall Hall, who has been in the city hospital under the name of John Wilson since last winter, when he was taken there suffering from badly frozen feet, was in the probate court yesterday charged with insanity, and a jury having declared him insane he is being held at the county jail until the board of control can hear from relatives, who are believed to live in Columbus, Ohio. Wilson became a raving maniac at the hospital Sunday and attempted to break all of the furniture upon which he could lay his hands. He was finally overpower ed and placed in straps until he quieted down. When brought into probate court yesterday the man could scarcely walk. His feet were in a bad condition as the result of the freezing he suffered last winter, when he walked back to St. Paul from Wisconsin, after being placed on a train and started out of town by the board of control. If Wilson's relatives can be located in Ohio he will be returned to that state to be cared for, but should the board be unable to locate them he will be sent to Rochester. SNAP, PUSH AND GO Is What One Should Get From Food. A young St. Louis lady " learned a food lesson she won't forget. She says: "I suffered from Indigestion for nearly ten years and although I tried all kinds of foods for breakfast I could not eat any of them until one day I discovered Grape-Nuts and now I wonder how I ever did without it. "I am a stenographer in a business office and need all the energy possible but I formerly spent the greater part of every morning wishing I had gone without breakfast for I was contin ually reminded of it by the uncom fortable distressed state of my stom ach. How much ability I lost through this I could not tell you but now all is different for I eat some fruit and a sau ser of Grape-Nuts and work hard all the morning and never think about my stomach until lunch time comes.

WELL SOON ENLARGE STATE PRISON'S CAPACITY Board of Control Completes Arrangements for Adding Two Wings to Main Cell Building and Providing Separate Ward for Insane Convicts. Arrang-ements are now beinpr com pleted by the state board of control for the additions to the cell buildings at the state penitentiary for which finan cial provision was made by the last legislature. The board has now at its disposal appropriations amounting in all to $55,000, with which it is in tended to add two wings to the main cell building at the prison, and to pro vide a separate ward for insane crimi nals. For a number of years the care of in sane criminals has been aserious prob lem to those authorities who have had charge of the state institutions, as there has been no institution which could properly be considered a fitting place for criminals so affected in mind as to require special treatment for their mental derangement. In the hospitals for the care of the insane there is no provision for the espionage of criminals and in the cor rectional institutions there are no fa cilities for special care of insane pa tients. Up to the present time the problem has been niet by the removal of the more pronounced cases of in sanity to the insane hospitals, and patients whose minds were but slightly affected have been kept and cared for as best they could be at the prison, or reformatory. ' This has, at times, caused trouble at both classes of institutions, and it has been agreed that-the plan did not work to the best interests of either the in stitutions or the patients. The insane ward at the prison will be maintained strictly for insane crim inals and equipped with special refer ence to the requirements of that work, will relieve the present difficulties of the situation. The present improvements at the penitentiary will' be made with full consideration of the strong probability that in the near future the entire pris on will be rebuilt or replaced by a new one. The members of the board of control have had that idea in view for some time past and have been shap ing all their plans accordingly, but the time is not yet ripe for a new peniten tiary and in the meantime more room is needed, so the wings will'be built to supply the immediate need. SHE KEPT HIM BUSY DODGING PANCAKES William F. Smith Wants Divorce From Woman Who Disappointed Him. Tired of dodging pancakes hurled at him while eating his breakfast, Wil liam F. Smith, a real estate man, has commenced action for a divore\; from the woman whom he married in order that his * children by a former wife might have a good home. Instead, however, of installing his children in a,.happy home, Mr. Smith says the domestic relations between him and his second wife have been anything buj; pleasant; and that in stead of treating his children as he had expected she would, the woman chased them .about the house and called them names not calculated to elevate the moral standing. of his home. Often, while at breakfast, says the plaintiff, his wife would, in a fit of anger, sieze a pancake or some break fast food and throw it in his face, and when he would co^me home to his eve ning meal it was seldom that he found one had *e«n prepared for him Once, when his-wife left him and re mained away sevefral days, he refused her admittance £to the house when she returned. Now 7he seeks an absolute divorce, and prays for an injunction restraining her./rpm interfering with the children. "MURTY" COULDN'T STAY AWAY FROM TOWN Lightfingered Gentleman Ignores Court's Warning and Gets 90 Days. "Murty" Lewis. } whose picture has long adorned the. rogues' gallery In the various police stations throughout the country, and who is said to be a clever pickpocket with a long police record, was before Judge Finehout in police court yesterday and drew 90 days in the workhouse. Lewis, accompanied by Fannie Marsh and Edna Earle, arrived in St. Paul about the time President Roosevelt was here, and shortly after their arrival the women were arrested for working a short change game. The women were sent to the workhouse at that time, but Lewis, who was also arrested, was allowed to leave town upon his promise to remain away. He returned to the city last week and was at-once arrest ed. "I gave you a chance some weeks ago," said Judge Finehout to the pris oner yesterday, "but you have not kept your promise to keep out of town. You are an undesirable person to have about, and for the safety of the public I will send you to the workhouse for 90 days." VETERAN ENGINEER IS LAID TO REST Funeral of D. W.

The board of park commissioners is so poor that it could not put $250 into an improvement even if it knew there would be a return on the invest ment. This was what President Wheelock informed the party who has been try ing to induce the board to establish public golf links at Phalen park. "We are so poor," said President Wheelock, "that I hardly know how we are going to pull through the sea son. Really we are on the verge of bankruptcy. The needs of the St. Paul park system are growing by leaps and bounds and yet we have no more money today than we had five years ago. I really believe that 30 cents spent unadvisedly now would entirely upset our calculations for the year, we are that hard pushed." The board was in every way will ing to permit the use of the park for the establishment of golf links, and heartily indorsed the proposition made by one of the party, that a public sub scription be taken for the amount, $250. This amount, it is said, will build the links, and then the board can pay for the care of the links by charging a small fee. Local golfers seem to be quite en thusiastic over the scheme and say they hope to have the links ready by September at the latest. SOUTH ST. PAUL ELECTS ITS MAYOR TODAY Mayor Lytle Declares That He Is Con- fident of Re-election. The municipal election in South St. Paul today promises to be the most hotly con tested one in the history of the city. The principal fight is on between the two can didates for mayor, and politics cut no figure. Mayor Lytle, the present incum bent of the office, has made a thorough canvas of the voters and announced last night that he was confident of re-elec tion. He has been mayor two terms, and during his last term was responsible largely for the installation of a splendid system of water works in South St. Pauh Mayor Lytle's one great object in being elected for another term is for the pur pose of securing for the city an extension of the St. Paul street railway. He has been endeavoring to do this for some time, and is confident that should he be elected again he would be successful in securing a street car service for the packing house city.

He has been out on bail two months. BURNED BY GASOLINE WHILE WASHING GLOVES Mrs. Andrew Hyford Rescued From Hor- rlble Fate by Her Husband. Mrs. Andrew Hyford, 948 South Robert street, sustained severe burns yesterday afternoon about the neck, face and hands by the igniting of gasoline with which she was cleaning gloves. The manner in which she was cleaning the gloves was to don them and wash them in the gaso line, and having done this she approached the fire to dry them. No sooner had she gotten within a foot of the stove than her clothing was in a blaze. Her husband, who was in the next room, heard her screams and had the presence of mind to wrap her in a blanket and ex tinguish the flames. During this process his hands were painfully burned. Mrs. Hyford will recover. Lunch at the New Restaurant, 404-408 Jackson, between Sixth and Seventh. = G&.S ===== Incaoidescents...

The Barber Asphalt company took another leap yesterday into unaccus tomed fields and landed what it was after. In bids opened by the board of pub lic works yesterday afternoon for the curbing of Concord street from Ada to Arthur street with Kettle river sandstone the Barber company was the lowest bidder, and as soon as the board has completed the customary inquiry this company will be awarded the contract. The job is worth, according to the Barber company's bid, $5,362, and was contested for by two other firms, Fielding & Shepley and P. H. Thorn ton, who asked $6,100 and $6,025, re spectively. Like brick paving, which the Bar ber company unsuccessfully tried to get a slice of several days ago, curb ing, especially the Kettle river kind, is a product almost exclusively han dled by Fielding & Shepley. The Bar ber company's capture of the contract yesterday came somewhat as a sur prise. Li. E. Shepley makes the claim that the entrance of the Barber company Is actuated b> spite work. "There is not a cent of profit in the work at tho figure they made," he informed the beard yesterday, "but If they want it at that price, they can have it." The city engineer's estimate for the work was $P,200, find he says that fig ure is about as low as it can be done for. As the result of the Barber com pany's entrance into the brick paving field several days ago, the cheapest price for that kind of paving in some years was obtfiirf-d. Fielding & Sh t/j ley admit that the competition of the Barber company compelled them to make a figure on which they fear there will be no. rrofit to themselves. WILL TRY AGAIN TO RAISE WHITE BEAR Experiment of Boring More Wells on Lake Shore to Be Tried. The county commissioners are to make another attempt to raise the level of the water in White Bear lake by pumping into it from wells which the county will bore at points along the shore of the lake. Yesterday afternoon twenty-five citi zens from the village of White Bear were at the court house in conference with Commissioners Gray, Wright and Seng, a special committee named by the county board to look into the mat ter of securing a supply of water for this lake. The citizens of White Bear are very anxiuos to have the county do something more towards restoring the lake to its former level, and at yesterday's conference promised to as sist the county in every manner possi ble. As a result of the conference the committee will recommend to the coun ty board at its next meeting, that an appropriation be made at once for the boring of at least one well, and this to be followed by three more should it prove successful. The new well to be sunk will not be on the property of the street car company this time, as was the last one, neither will it be in an adjoining county. It was agTeed to sink the well on the White Bear side of the lake, and to equip it with a pump and a gasoline engine. As soon as It Is demonstrated that the well can fur nish a good flow of water three more will be sunk. It is expected the four wells will cost close to $10,000 when completed. _ REV.

OLD SETTLERS GATHER AGAIN Men Who Came to Minnesota Before '49 Hold Annual Reunion. With membership depleted by three deaths within the year, the Old Set tlers' Association of Minnesota held its annual meeting at the state capi tol yesterday. There were present twenty members—twenty men who came to Minnesota previous to 1849, and bravely facing the dangers and privations of pioneer life in the West ern wilderness, remained through the various stages of civilization and at all times took their prominent part in the progress of the community. Each year the little company that gathers for the annual meeting of this organization is shrunken in numbers. There are fewer to come, and those who remain find it harder to come, but that same determination which brought them to the wild Northwest more than fifty years ago impels them to attend these meetings, and they take great pride in answering "present" to the roll call. Those who attended yesterday were: Maj. B. H. Randall, Winona; J. D. Ludden, William Pitt Murray, Oliver Parson, W. H. Tinker, P. H. Johnson, Rev. A. Ravoux, Joseph Dion, Lorenzo Hoyt, William il Quinn, A. H. Cav ender, S. Statler, John Hinkston, Ed gar Folsom, S. P. Folsom, D. A. J. Ba ker, E. W. Durant, James McMullen, A. L. Larpenteur, J. B. Chancy. The association met first at the cap itol, and from there went almost im mediately to the Merchants hotel, where the customary banquet took place. Before the banquet a short business meeting was held, the prin cipal matter for consideration being a proposition from the Territorial Pio neers that the Old Settlers join with them every year in meeting at the log cabin at the fair grounds. After some discussion the«communication was de ferred until the meeting of next year. It was the desire of a number of the members that the Old Settlers' association preserve its own identity until there is but one member left, and that the records of the organization then pass to the State Historical so ciety for preservation. Officers were -elected for the ensuing year as follows: D. A. J. Baker, pres ident; James McMullen, first vice president; E. W. Durant, second vice president; A. L. Larpenteur, secretary; J. D. Ludden, treasurer; J. B. Chancy', corresponding secretary. John D. Ludden reported the death of Alexander Ramsey, the first gov ernor of Minnesota; Henry L Mosj, the first attorney general of Minneso ta, and George W. Brannon, in the year just past. . m .
