shoulder and they extracted a triangular
piece of glass three Inches long.
According to the reports of the men
about the place Grese had been about the
saloon for some hours and started trouble
with three men and they resented his fa
miliarity to such an extent that one of
them pushed him through a showcase.
The flow of blood alarmed the men who
■were spectators of the melee and Grese
was taken to a doctor's office over Dfllin's
drug store, at First avenue and Wash
ington, and the patrol wagon summoned.
Then he was hurried to the city hospital,
and the reports from that institution were
to the effect that he was in a most se
rious condition. He had lost a large quan
tity of blood and several arteries were
severed. Whether the wounds would
prove fatal the attaches were not pre
pared to say.

FOR A LARGE SUM
Former "Floor Man" at Chamber of Com
merce Wants $50,000
Louis C. Remurd has sued A. M. Wood
ward, member of the Minneapolis chamber
of commerce, for $60,000. According to
the complaint which was filed yesterday,
Remurd was the "floor man" for the con
cern, and had occupied that position for
several years. In 1899, according to the"
allegations, he was to have an interest in
the firm —one-fourth—in addition to such
money as might be paid him for his serv
ices as an employe.
These, he says, were worth at least $7.
--600 a year, and in connection with his
complaint he seta forth the amount he
has received since 1899, and the figures
lange from $1,820 to a trifle more than
$3,000 yearly. He asserts that the com
pany makes a profit of at least $30,000 a
year, and on July 1, 1904, he was inform
ed that he could work one more month
and then would have to seek another job.
Mr. Remurd asserts that the promise
to give him a quarter interest in the busi
ness of the firm kept him from engaging
in other employment, and he believes
there should be an accounting and he
should have at least $50,000.

CHICAGO—GirIs ranging In age

Not only has this traffic in child
wives been carried on among Italians

exist among native Americans.
"As a result of the disclosures I have
recommended to the legislative com

amended so that no girl under IS

she have the consent of her parents "

TOO LITTLE LIGHT
AND TOO MUCH GAS
Aldermen Begin to Complain
About Tactics of Gas
The quality and quantity of gas whk-h

and they have refused to order any ex
tensions of the electric and gas lighting
systems until during the summer.
It is claimed that many of the lights
are not burning at night, and Aid. I'latt
Walker, who is a member of the gas
committee, Fays he has seen eight ex
tinguished lights In a single block. This
ls more than the usual quota, but as the
alderman lives in the Eighth ward where
the blocks are long It is possible that he
may be correct.
Some attempts have been made to
blame the lack of Illumination- on the
company which has charge of the lighting
system and to hold the lamplighters re-
Hj.onsible for the failure of the lights to
The city has a contract with a lighting
company which agrees to maintain the
lamps for a certain sum per year—sl3.lo.
The gas is paid for by the city at the rate
of $1 per thousand feet, and the private
consumer Is compelled to pay an addi
tional 10 cents for every thousand feet
which he uses.
Many street lamps are reported "out"

The Flood Plays Many Pranks
Rev. William Alexander Smith, prom
inent as the author of many works on
oriental travel, has written an enter
taining account of his experience in
Kansas during the floods in 1903. He
"We lived a full mile from the near
est point of the Saline river, but when
the river overflowed it sent a flood clear
into our dooryard. and we had to go
about in boats, many of our neighbors
suffering sad experiences both from
loss of life and property.
"We —wife and myself—had an ex
perience quite unique, and thereby
hangs a tale. My wife for years past,
and myself as well, had been annoyed,
pained and worried so greatly at times
by dyspeptic trouble as to take much
of the joy of living out of life.
"I had seen Postum so liberally
spoken of, and we suffered so much
from coffee, that one day, some months
ago, I decided to try some Postum for
ourselves. We liked its aroma and
taste, so we were satisfied from the
start, and we quit coffee.
"Gradually my digestive organs havo
grown healthier and stronger, my sick
headache left and we both could eat
almost what we pleased without dis

tinuance of tea and coffee?
'The flood came and found us out of
Postum and shut off from all supplies
In the village for eight days. But we
got hold of some left over tea and a
little coffee, and this we used as lons
as it lasted. This was the only respect
in which our meals were different from
what we had been using, but a change
came over us. My wife thought I had
more temper than grace, while I. in my
turn, thought—well, never mind, only
she did not seem to appear to be the

advisedly with his lips.*
"Well, the clouds cleared away, the
flood abated, dry land appeared and
we made teady to visit the grocery
store, and n;y wife suggested that we
needed more Postum. To tell the rest
in a few words, when Postum came
back the domestic atmosphere became
more genJal; in fact, about normal.
Our troubles and sick feelings disap
peared and there can be no doubt they
were due to tea and coffee, for they
quickly yielded when Postum was used

other cases, since the very first settle

frontiers has been due primaiily to the
men of native birth. But the immigrants
from Ireland in the eighteenth century

these men had begun to mix with their
fellows ot other stocks, and they furnished
their full share of leadership in the great
struggle which made us a nation. Among
their number was Commodore John Barry

infant navy owed most. On land they
furnished generals like Montgomery who
fell so gloriously at Quebec, and Sullivan

of a New Hampshire family which fur

states, while the continental troops of
the hardest fighter among Washington's
generals. Mad Anthony Wavne, were 're
cruited so larpely from this stock that
Light Horse Harry I>ee always referred
to them as "the line of Ireland." Nor
must we forget that of thl- same stock
there was a boy during the days of the

SCOT WHO AIDED ITO
TO SEE WORLD IS DEAD
Sir Robert Jardine Helped Young Jap
anese to Escape From Island
LONDON—Sir Robert Jardine's death
at the ripe age of 80 removes an in
teresting personality of the old school
from Scotch society. He was of course
a well known patron of the turf, but he
disapproved of gambling, and he is
paid never to have backed either his
"^ n horses or greyhounds, of which he
v*;;s ■ well known breeder.
To few people outside the British
isles will Sir Robert's death bring
back more striking memories than t<>
the Marquis Ito. Many years ago.
when it was an offense punishable by
death for a Japanese to leave his na
tive country, it was the firm of Jar
dine, Matheson & <'o. which played so
important a part in the marquis* es
cape to Europe with four other youths.
Their object, of course, was to study
western methods, but at Shanghai the
little party separated, Ito and one of
his friends embarking on an English
ship i . order to learn navigation and
seamanship at first hand.
On reaching London they were met
by a representative of Sir Robert Jar
dine's firm, who provided them with
money and lodgings. All but one of
these intrepid men were in due course
raised to the Japanese peerage.
ACTRESS' FAITH REWARDED
BY $40,000 IN DIAMONDS
Finds Gems in Safety Box of Dead
Brazilian Whom She Had Trusted
PARIS—A well known French ac
tress has Just come into a handsome
legacy in a most unexpected manner.
Several months ago she handed over
the greater part of her Jewelry to the
care of a wealthy Brazilian gentleman,
under whose protection she had been
living, as she was afraid of being
robbed. The Jewels were locked up in
a safe hired by the Brazilian in a de
posit vault of a bank.
A few days ago while traveling
abroad, the Brazilian gentleman died
suddenly. The actress was in con
siderable alarm as. to the fate
of her jewels, and after numerous
formalities had been gone through the
safe containing them was opened In
the presence of a magistrate.
The jewels were found intact, and
with them were twelve visiting cards
made of gold and engraved with the
lady's name. Each golden card was
turned down at the left corner, and In
the turned down portion was a hole
through which was passed a ribbon.
Attached to each ribbon was a
precious stone worth $2,000. Altogether
the gold cards and their attached jew
els are estimated to be worth $40,000.
SON GETS BICYCLE
FOR LEARNED TALK
CHICAGO—WhiIe Prof. George E.
Vincent of the University of Chicago
addressed the Chicago Woman's Aid on
"The Psychology of Democracy," his
son John, aged 11 years, who had been
promised a bicycle when the lecture
was done, impatiently "sat it out."
The boy held a watch on his father
when the latter, with effective earnest
"We know that as individuals we
know little: how then can we add igno
rance to ignorance in the democracy
and secure wisdom?"
Prof. Vincent turned a pretty com
pliment for the character of intelli
gence represented in the gathering,
and John's face was twisted with dis
gust. Then came the final and hardest
strain, when the concluding blows were
"Society i* held together by senti
ment. It is that which guides the
great mass of people, and the test of
moral insight is the ability to decide
by instinct the right and wrong of any
proposition. Therefore, I say—"
But John Vincent was not waiting
to hear what Vincent elder said; he
was waiting in the vestibule.
"Going to buy me a bicycle," he told
a sympathetic woman. "And I guess
listening to him talk I earned it."

and our great salvage fire sale will be
a thing of the past.
We take this opportunity to thank
our many patrons for their more than
liberal patronage given us during the
past three weeks.
Our first announcement was that we
would dispose of all damaged stock
at unheard of prices. This $100,000
stock we sold in little mere than three
weeks, proving conclusively that wo
have made good on the bargains prom
All our spring and summer stock wo
bought last year to be delivered Feb.
20th, but at that time we could re
ceive no new goods owing to our fire.
There was not a R. R. depot in this
city but was crowded with our Mer
chandise. But for the past week our
teams have been hauling the new
goods as fast as they could, and we
can safely say now that half of our
new stock is ready for sale, and by
Monday of next week we will be in
better shape than we were even before
Our store service for the past three
weeks was not all we desired, but in
another week we will be bigger, better
and brighter than ever.
