St. Paul, Oct. 3. The little town
of St. Char! s, in Winona county,
was almost completely wiped out
i hy a tprnadO this afternoon. Seven
people were killed and 28 were in
jured. Buildings on the main
Btreet of the town were ail destroy
ed, and it Is feared there are bodies
in the ruins. Forty -two residence
aleo ere d?stroyfrd, and the total
property damaged is estimated, at
$100,000. ! .
Among the buildings destroyed
were the central school building,
the Caica go Great Western depot
building, the Catholic church and
Parroti'et Wagon Woiks.
This being Saturday, pple fiom
the surrounding farms had gathered
in larga numbers in the main street
to do their customary shopp ng.
At 2:30 the storm cloud was been
approaching from the southwest,
and there was,an immediate scram
ble Tot places of safety.
Tne tornado struck the town
from the southwest quarter and
mad a clean sweep through it, fol
lowing almost entiiely the line of
the Main s reet and devastating all
the buildings on either side. Then
the residences further back werd
struck and many of. them blown
completely away.
It t eems almost miraculous that
there was not a greater loss of life.
Four of those killed were in "John
Etwu'e Saloon when it collapsed,
and tney were buried ; beneath the
v wreckage. The others were in a
dry-goods store, which was blown
away and they wer killed by the
failing waifs. Ed Peters, of Dover,
was killed in the wreck of the hotel.
The tilephona exchange was de
molished and two of the girls were
EerinusK injured. -." - '
- Mr. B.ankenborg, who was in
jured', was the proprietor of a large
grain t-levator, and was caught in

Communication was established
between this city and St. Cbarles
. by telephone by a crew of linemen
of the American Electric Company,
which happened to be in that vi

gave the first information ; of four
.. dead persons. Utter confusion
reigns in the town. The streets are
filled with wreckage of buildings,
tries and farm implements which
. were blown through the air. The

Potatoes contain a poisonous alka
loid known as solanine. Little of thit ,
poison is found in the new potatoes, '
but even fresh potatoes which have 1
grown above the surface of the soil
and have a green skin are generally '
known to be poisonous, says a scien-
tific authority. When potatoes are
kept a long time they contain a large
amount of this poison, and many cases
of serious poisoning- have occurred in
late summer from eating old potatoes.
About ten years ago many soldiers in
the German army were ill from-an un
known cause. They suffered with head
ache, colic, diarrhea, vomiting, weak
ness, and slight stupor, and in some
cases dilatation of the pupils. The
matter was investigated and it was dis
covered that the men had been eating
potatoes , which had been kept for a
long time in a damp place until thej
had begun to sprout. Chemical ex- ;
amination revealed the fact that these j
potatoes contained 24 times as much
solanine as is found in new tatoes. ;
More People Killed by Lightning in
tne Ooen Thinn in the Wire-
"jpfj Bound Honsea.
' It is in the country that most of the
fatal accidents from lightning occur,
and they are about evenly divided be
tween people who are struck in houses
and those who are killed in the open
or while seseking refuge under a tree,
says an article on lightning, in Frank
Leslie's Popular Monthly. To stand
under a tree in a thunder storm is per
haps; next to clinging to a lightning
rod, the most dangerous position that
can be chosen. The comparative saf c
ty of the modern city from lightning
is due to the network of wires which
covers it, and the number of "tall
buildings with iron points, tin roofs,
metallic gutters and steel frames con
nected with the water, sewer and gas
pipes, which form an excellent system
of conductors. Still the city is noil by
any means absolutely protected, ' for
when a cloud with a tremendous store
of energy approaches quickly, all the
wires and pipes in ten cities cannot
prevent it from discharging recklessly
right and left.
The Taioaroru Are OMug Up Thel
CaatooM avnd Looking; Forward

It is manv Tears Kinff.TnTn -r-r,,.,,
Inuians have held a "condolence," a
ce.emony which to the. red men is
similar to the inauguration, of a presi
dent by the whdtesy says a Niagara
Failg correspondent of the Chicago
Inter Ocean. In explanation of this
an eld chief saysthat the Indians no
longer look upon. the. ceremony of a
"condolence" with the reverence of
old. The Tuscaroras are the adopted
children of the Six Nations, and they
say that the Onondaga, the firekee'p
ers of the nation, practically have dis
qualified themselves for this, honor
able position, and that the Tuscaroras
no longer look up to them- as children
are wont to do to a- parent for advice
and help. -
From these feelings between the
adopted: children and the leading tribe
of the Six Nations, it is eviden.t that
the Indians are clinging closer to civ
ilization and the white man's customs,
and that a chasm is opening-hetween
the Indian" tribes of the state.. As a re
sult of this severance of tribal rela
tions the Indians of western New York
are looking forward to citizenship.
Practice of Completing Their Edu
cation Abroad Prove Almoat
Alwaya ProntbIe. -
."The best thing a physician or sur
geon, can do . is to go off about six
months every two or three? years and
give patients a chance to miss him.
They will flock back to him, in swarms
providing, of course, he has estab
lished a reputation and gained their
complete confidence." So says a lead
ing and eminently successful surgeon.
.- Here is a physician living in a city
of 56,000 inhabitants, with a practice
of $20,000 a year, of which he collects
$12,000. ' "The most successful practi
tioners in my town," he says, "are
two young men who spent a year each
in Vienna and Paris, apparently study
ing the latest methods and cores. -All
that they knew they learned right- in
New York, but the mere fact of their
having taken a, ' course or two in
Europey-or,. having pretended to, has
g,sv-en them avcgue which no one who
has never been- abroad can appreciate.

And Reaented Remark o-f FVah law-
yer, by RefwUg to Corn to
tv , an Agreement.
It behooves a lawj-er to be careful
of what he says while arguing before
a jury.- John C. Kinnear, a practition
er in Xew York, realizes thisfactthor
oughly, says' the Albany Argus, and all
because of a remark he made not long
ago in the Yorkville municipal court..
He appeared on behalf of another law
yer who was suing a corporation for
$500 for services alleged to have been
performed. The evidence adduced
made out quite a strong case for the
plaintiff, whose counsel made a telling
speech. He reviewed the facts in clev
er fashion, and toward the close of his
remarks- said that . the corporation
would have paid but for the fact that a
"redheaded lobster of a junior partner
had objected, and thus precipitated,
legal proceedings. The court rebuked
Mr. Kinnear for using such language
and the lawyer apologized. But he had
done the mischief. All the jurymen
but one tittered, and he had red hair.
The judge delivered his charge strong
ly in favor of the plaintiff and the
jury retired. Everj-body expect ed a ver
Hict in a few minutes, but in a couple
of hours words reached the court
that there was no prospect of an agree
ment. -" -With one exception the jury
was agreed on a verdict for plaintiff.
The exception was : the red-headed
man. who said: "Perhaps the"lawyer
thinks it's smart to call people red
headed loDsters. I don't." The court
finally discharged the jury and Lawyer
Kinnear is still digesting the lesson.
Uncle- Siaai'n New Seal.
The state department is to indulge
itself with a new great seal of the
United States, as the old one is so worn
that it will not make a clean-cut im
pression on the documents'it is used
on. Congressappropriated $1,200 to
have a new seal cut; but the.old de
sign, of course, will be followed faith
fully. Only three seals have been
formed since the formation of the gov
ernment, they having been made in
1782, 1841 and 1SS5, respectively.
