KOTEL ST. LOUIS , LAKE MINNETONKA ,
Minn. , July 13. Thinking of the thousands
of clly folk who are at tills
moment enjoying the heated term
at seashore , mountains or lakeside ,
concourse of pleasure seekers have found a
more delightful spot than Mlnnotonka. Sit
ting hero on ono of Iho broad verandas of
l\ Hotel SI. Louis I see before mo a scene
that beggars description.
Around the southern shore lo my left Is
the iitrotch ot land called Coltagowood
and hero are some of Iho most beautiful
Hummer homes on the lake , not to forget
mentioning Northvlno , the charming spot
uolecled by Sir Charles Gibson ot SI. Louis
lor his hospitable abode. It stands far
round to the right of Hotel St. Louis and
Is1 built on a point of land thai overlooks on
the front the dancing waters of tlio lake ,
while far to the left , right and rear lie
hundreds of acres of beautiful woods , parks
and meadows , all In the possession of Sir
Charles , who Is the largest property owner
on Lake Mlnnotonka.
Ono can scarcely know where to com-
munco to tell of Iho almost Innumerable
charms of this lovely place , for every spot
lias Its own particular attraction. Straight
before me I can just detect the spires of
the Lake Park hotel , which , together with
tlio Lufayotto ( a very "swagger" place ) , and
Hotel St. Louis makes up a trio of three
most templing hostolrlos. The latter ,

A NOVEL LOCOMOTIVE.
An Imprnvril Typn HeHlgiioil nnd Itnllt In
The use of compound locomotives abroad
Is much more frequent than on our Ameri
can railways and some of the types adopted
over Ihcro as a- result of a number of years
of experience differ widely from any of our
own engines. The Paris , Lyons & Mediter
ranean line , which , by the way , Is fre
quently referred to In France by the somo-
whtit gruesome nickname of the "pour la
mort" road , began experiments In 1SSS with
compound locomotives for express service ,
nnd afler four years of sludy evolved a
design which Is of some novelty , at least to
master mechanics on tills side of the water.
These engines have Iwo coupled driving
wheels on each sldo nnd a leading truck
with two or four wheels. There are four
cylinders ; those for high pressure sleam
laken direct from the boiler are placed oul-
sldo the frames of the locomotive between
the front driving wheel and the rear truck
wheel , and are connected to the rear drivers ,
whllo Ihe low pressure cylinders are belween
Iho frames over Iho cenler of Iho Iruck
nnd are coupled to the front drivers. While
the outward nppenrnncc of the engine Is
therefore decidedly unusual , the most In-
leresllng feature about It Is the boiler. In
the 1888 type of engine the weight was
117,000 pounds , whllo the latest type weighs
but 39,200 pounds. This reduction In
weight was obtained In two ways : by sub
stituting steel for copper In fire boxes , after
our own custom , and ly .reducing 'the
length of Iho boiler from 13 feel 3 Inches
to D feet 10 inches. The latler Importanl
change was made aflcr some noleworthy
experiments on boiler construction had been
carried out by the engineers of the company.
It had been known for some time that by
using In a fourteen-foot boiler tubes with
ribs projecting from their Interior surface
Instead of plain tubes , that the fuel was
burned moro economically. Unforlunalely
this desirable feature was offset by a draw
back which more than counterbalanced It ,
viz. : The steaming capacity of the boiler
was reduced. Then experiments were made
to ascertain If the advantage could be re
tained and the difficulty avoided by using
shorlcr tubes , and It was found thai wllh
ribbed lubes 2.5G In dlnmeler the maximum
cvaporallon Is obtained when Ihey are 9.84
feel long , which length has been adoplcd In
Iho new engines. The capacity of thl
cylinders has also been Increased 20 per
cenl , so Ihnl now they are 13.39 and 21.26
Inches In diameter with a stroke of 24.4
Inches. The Walschaert valve motion , with
which some of the Columbian exposition
locomotives were equipped , is used for Hie
high pressure cylinders , and an Independent
motion of special design wllhout eccentrics
for the others. Doth uro controlled by a
single steam reversing gear so arranged
that a definite ratio of expansion In the
high nnd low pressure cylinders Is always
malnlalned. The new engines arc found lo
not only weigh less and bo more economical
than the older type , but to evaporate more
water In spite of the smalled boiler , a strong
proof of the value of careful scientific In
vestigation In designing machinery.

The coming Doheftiiari state tournament
continues to bo tho' ntprcstlng topic In Bo
hemian circles. If , predictions come true
the affair will surpass 'anything attempted
heretofore In this line. Increasing activity
and Interest surely nugur well for the event.
The committee from 'IhoiSoulh Omaha sokol
having the preliminary arrangements In
charge has been compelled to effect a change
of program In the place. ] Last Monday Sarpy
Mills was selected for .a pile. Saturday , Au
gust 25 will be i the Drst day
of the tournament , The visiting
teams and delegations will bo
received and conducted to Thalia hall. South
Omaha , where luncli and other refreshments
are to be served In the evening. The selec
tion of a leader will also occupy their time.
On the following Sunday the contest will
commence in earnest and early at Sarpy
Mills. The four Omaha teams , consisting of
two classes In the first and the same number
in the second division will go by motor to the
hall In South Omaha , and from there all the
turners are to bo taken by carryalls to Sarpy
Mills. In the afternoon of that day special
trains will accommodate spectators with a
rldo to the park.
On Monday the announcement of prizes
Is to be made In South Omaha , and the rest
of the day spent In sight seeing by the
visitors from the Interior of the state , under
the guidance of members of local societies.
On the opening of the tournament Mayor
Johnston of South Omaha will deliver an ad
dress of welcome to the visitors. The re
quisite number of athletes to constitute a
team Is six , and fifteen teams will probably
take part in the tournament , representing
Omaha , South Omaha and the moro thickly
populated Bohemian centers In the Interior
of Nebraska. In the performances men are
to ba credited as Individuals and members
of teams at the same time. The first
division will exercise on apparatus In per
formances rated from three to flvo points ,
the latter being considered the highest and
equal to 100 per cent. For gymnasts of the
second division , performances rating one to
live points are allowable.
In the long Jumping one point will be al
lowed * or the first twelve feet and an ad
ditional point for every two feet up to six
teen. Thereafter every foot Is to be counted
as n point. High Jumping from three and
a. half to four and a half feet Is counted at
three points , with additional points for
every four Inches thereafter.
Flvo feet In height will be considered
as ono point In polo vaulting ; seven feet ,
three points , and an additional point for
every six Inches to eight feet. Four Inches
above that constitute an additional point.
Fifteen feet Is the lowest In rope climbing
und necessary to gain a point. On six ad
ditional feet two moro points are granted
and another ono for every two feet there
after. Lifting fifty-pound dumbbells twenty-
five times with ono shift from right to left
or vlco versa , entitles gymnasts to a point.
Above that number of lifts they are credited
with an additional point for every live clear
raises. In nil the exercl'cs first and second
prizes for the first and second divisions
are to bo awarded ; prizes consist of diplo
mas nnd medals.
These rules were adopted at a recent meetIng -
Ing and according to members will bo
strictly enforced. The oxerchcs are to bo
adjudged by nlno Judges , three of
whom are from Omaha , In addition
to the Tel Jed sokol , the local Dohcmlan
Catholic society and Benevolent Tyrs are to
participate. Anton Stolger , John Krechler

In German circles Increasing Interest Is
manifested In the approaching Nebraska
Snongcrfcst to be held at Columbus next
month. Tha affair continues tn be almost
the sole topic In singing circles , with a view
nt making It the grandest state affair of
this kind , As has been published heretofore ,
some doubt AS to the absolute advisability
of sclenting such n difficult song us "Die
Golster.iohl.icht" for rendition has been
expressed locally , and the opinion Is gaining
ground that Omaha's societies will probably
ba called upon to render this , while unsup
ported by societies from the Interior of the
state. Since this seems to bo the probability.
Omaha singers Are discussing the reported
action of Fcst Director I'ohl at Columbus
In engaging an Omaha orchestra , which
Is to accompany the choir In this song. It is
contended , slnco It becomes more probable
that Omaha nlono will be called upon to
glvo this number , that local singers
ought to have been consulted about the
selection of a band , which Is to play such
nn Important part In the successful rendi
tion of the spirit's battle. Without decry
ing the ability of the engaged band , they
say none but finished artists In their line ,
such as can be furnished by Omaha , ought
to be employed to glvo proper expression ,
convey a proper understanding and attend
ant appreciation of this beautiful song to
the hearers. This Is only contention for
complete success at the fcst , It Is main

THE POINT ALPHABET.
New System of Printing fortlm Illlnil Com-
Inir Into I' * i1.
The Maryland School for the Blind , on
North avenue , has received the first bible
published In the Now York point alphabet
for the use of the blind. This bible may
have n strong influence In revolutionizing
the alphabet system of study by the blind ,
says the Daltimoro Sun.
The now blblo Is In eleven large volumes
and was executed In Louisville , Ky. , by the
American Printing House for the Blind ,
which Is nn annex of the Kentucky Insti
tute for the Blind. Eleven employes wore
occupied for nearly a year In preparing the
copies , which are being sent to all the
schools for the blind In the country
through the American Bible association.
The alphabet In which the work la pub
lished consists of a series of raised points
grouped arbitrarily to represent letters syl-
ablcs or entire words. This alphabet Is In
use In most of the schools for the blind In
this country In connection with the "lino
alphabet , " which consists of raised Roman
letters. Many educators of the blind cling
to the old line alphabet and give It the pref
erence In their schools , while others claim
for the point alphabet superior advantages.
Superintendent F. D. Morrison of the
Maryland School for the Blind Is one of
the most earnest advocates of the use of
the point system , which , he says , is not
only more concise and more easily made ,
but Is more easily learned and moro quickly
read than the line alphabet. Ho also says
that the line alphabet requires a much more
sensitive touch than the point system.
Little boys nnd girls at the Maryland
school have acquired great facility In readIng -
Ing the point alphabet In a short time. They
can write , too , with case , their writing Im
plements consisting of a soft pad covered
with heavy mnnllla paper and a stylus ,
with which they prick little points on the
paper from right to left , to be road from
left to right. The pupils who leave the
school carry on regular correspondence in
point writing with their former classmates.
Many years ago , nt a convention of educators
caters of the blind , Mr. Morrison expressed
his belief that the New York point system
would supercede all others. His state
ment was not credited , so widespread was
the usa and belief In the advantages of the
line alphabet. Since that tlmo largo num
bers of standard works on religious , liter
ary and scientific subjects , as well as text
books , have been published In the point
"Tho greatest drawback to progress In the
Introduction of the point system , " said Mr.
Morrison yesterday , "has been the fact that
the only bible for the blind was In the line
alphabet , a big work of twenty volumes.
Thlsf was a big stumbling block that seemed
for a while Irremovable , owing to the great
expense of making a new bible. That
stumbling block Is now removed , and the
advocates of the point system feel that they
may advance their arguments with confi
dence at the coming convention of educators
caters of the blind at Chautnuqua , now that
they are able to take their stand blblo In
A ntiHo IiiHlmmtlnn.
One of Nebraska's great congressmen
sauntered Into n barber shop In Washington
for a shave recently , says an exchange. The

manipulated the faces of the greatest men
of the nation. McKolghan took his sent In
the big chair and the artist , who claims to
have scraped the face of General Washing
ton , approached the congressman with razor
and napkin , and after having adjusted the
cloth stepped back In wonder. ' "Massa Con
gressman , " the artist said , "you reminds
me of DanleWViebstah. " Mr. McKelghan
smiled visibly mm replied : "It Is the slzo
of my head or the massive brain that puts
you In mind of the great orator , I suppose ? "
"No , sah , " ho stammered ; "no , sah ; not yo'
head , sah. It Is yo' broff. "

Whllo for many years the A. 0. U. W. has
had a Memorial day , which Is celebrated on
the anniversary of the death of Father Up-
church , the founder of the order , n feeling
has arisen among members of the order
that a day should be set aside on which the
order could show remembrance and respect
for deceased members and give some sign
that , although a brother might have gene
before , ho was not forgotten. Memorial day
Is celebrated In the middle of February nnd
on account of the season , such exercises as
are desired cannot be performed. The senti
ment has finally culminated In the adoption
by the lodges of this city of a "Floral day , "
which has been arranged somewhat upon the
plan of the national Memorial day. Sunday ,
August 5 , ha been set as the date. It Is
proposed to hold on that day memorial serv
ices at some place yet to be determined. A
grand procession Is also to be one of the
features. The ceremonies will bo participated
In by upwards of 1,200 memners of I ho order
tn tills city. Committees will be appointed
to visit the cemeteries and place flowera on
the gr.ms of dcjeate I brothers. Master Work
man J. G. Tale Is expected to bo present
and deliver an address. Committees have
been appointed by some of the ledges to
perfect arrangements and thu other Judges
will appoint theirs during the coming week.

a long time those Joyous occasions. This
year , however , it has been decided to aban
don the clam-bake , and on next Saturday
afternoon the Elks will hie themselves to
