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
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
The official laying of the stone was
performed by Max Frankel, chairman
of the building association of the con
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
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.

The sequel to a story of a
love-making match between a
pneumonia patient and a pretty
nurse was the marriage license
secured yesterday by Carl Axel
Berling for -his marriage to Miss
Sadie Christina Jennie Carlson,
the girl who nursed him back to
health when he was deathly ill
from the effects of pneumonia a\
Bethesda hospital.
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
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.
"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. _

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.
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.

Board of Control Completes
Arrangements for Adding
Two Wings to Main Cell
Building and Providing
Separate Ward for Insane
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
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.

Park Board Will Permit Use
of the Ground for That
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
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.
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

Mrs. Andrew Hyford Rescued From Hor-

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.

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.
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
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. _

Men Who Came to Minnesota
Before '49 Hold Annual
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. .
