Charles Lane yesterday received a
telegram from I'resldent Iu.ia of the
Pacific Nortw'est IBaseball league, an
nouncing the fact that IButte and Helena
had been admitted to the league aIc
cording to the applinations l.made a
cot.!z. of weeks ago.
As yet nothing definite has been de'
cided upon by the manlgement of the
local team. The admission to the league
in the face of decided opposiltion is a vic
tory for the Butte and IHlena baseball
magnates, but it is not by any means a
certainty that lengue ball will be inlbyed
here or In Helena.
The local managers will not anlnounel
their plans until the Northern Pl'acflc
Railroad company Is heard from. Ap,
plications for rate concesslons hav¢e been
made, but so far no reply has boon re
ceived that could be cnstrued as en
Without reasnnable rates for the trans
portation of the teams to and from llel
ena and Butte the enterprise cannot he
made profitable in either city, and for
this reason the local meIne are not doing
any shouting until they hear from. the
Mr. Lane said this morning that he
had expected word yesterday but was
disappointed. It is likely that snome In
dication of the position of the railroad
will be received this afternoon or in the
This recelved the work of orgnzllling
the team will be started antd pushed
vigorously. J. J. McCloskey will have
the management of the Itutte teanm in
the event the railroads come to the lls
sistance of the league, and the pick of a
larke list of first-class player.s will be the
fortune of the I}utte fans.
In a one-sided contest at at Waltrbury,
Conn., last night, Young Peter .Ja'kson
defeated Jimmy Handler, the Ne'wark
welterweight, in three rounds. The fightfi
was attended by 2000 people.
Handler showed up is green as the
newest pug In the ring and J:atkson had
no difilculty in smtnashinlg himI fr'om the'
staft. In the third round he was diown
continually and theit bout was stoppetd Iby
Referee Charley Whitle who gave, Jack
son the decision.

Fully 1500 people saw the start of the
go-us-you-plea:se race at the West End
coliseum at St. Louis last night. Rep
resentative pedesterians from all over
the country are entered. The Coliseum
track is 16 laps to the mile. Fifteen men
got the word at 10 o'clock and began
their long journey. At the end of the
first hour Peter Hegelman of New York
led the bunch by three laps, with (George
Tracey, also of New York, second.
Young Griffo must have had a "hoo
doo" of some kind put on him when he
landed in this country from Australia
In 1893, says Otto Flatu. No figh.ter has
inet with the many misfortunes that he
has. Since his sojourn in this country
he has been an inmate of the reforma
tory and the insane asylum. Now comes
the news that he must quit the ring for
ever on account of heart trouble of some
kind. "Griffo" was the cleverest man
that ever put his hands in the ring. This
is a broad assertion, but nevertheless
it's a fact. He just simply astonished
this country when he arrived and gave
his first exhibition. The poor fellow can
neither read nor write and is many miles
from home. Just what he will do to
make a livelihood In the future is a
mystery. Life certainly holds no allur
ing prospects for the little Australian in
the future. Doesn't it make us atop and
wonder how unfortunate some people
are? A bad spell strikes them and
they are never afterward able to shake
the same off.
'The writer first met Oriffo when he
came to Chicago during the World's fair
r. He was In company with Ted
4 exander and both were at the training
qlarters of Bolly Smith, who was at
that time training to meet Frankle Mc
gh of Cincinnati. During the visit
liffo put on the gloves with Solly at
toe request of Zick Abrams, who was
rInaging Smith at the time. Of course,
)qly was a new beginner and had much
lp learn, but the manner in which Griffo
yint ground the little Californian was a
4 ptlon. Smith could not lay a hand on
W~jit, and one time Griffo put his hands
down and kept moving his head and
Solly could not put a glove in his face
even with this handicap. That's how
clever the little fellow was. But suc
gees spoiled him. He got more money
out of hil firsL fight In Amolprhil than ho
ever rereiated In Australia In a yoar, landl
the Almerlian dollars simply flowed into

pieces of the rock brought to the surface

of slate. Occasionally small pieces of

The Art of Letting Go.
We htIl on to a great many things last
year which we should have let go
shaken off entirely. In the first place, we
should eti el firom our minds completely
the things which canniot be helped-our
past minlsfortunes, the trivial ocn.i- lrences
whic-h have motitllt'd or hulnlllated us.
Thinking of them not only does no good,
but It robs us of peace and *comfort. The
are of forgetting useless things is a great
one, anvid we should ]ea-lrn it at any (cot.
It Is just as important to learn to hIt
go as to hold on. Anythling that c-annot
help us to get on and up in the world;
anything that is a drag, a stumibllhtg
block, ol a hindrance, should be gx
punged from our memory. Many ied(ple
seem to take a positive phitasure in re
calling past misfortunes, sufferings 4n
failures. They dwell upon such exp rl
ences, and repaint the dark pictures u tll
the mind becomes melancholy *and sadt
If they would only learn to drive'th m
out and banish their attempts to rkttrn,
as they would banish a thief froin the
house, those painful thoughts wivold
cease to demand entrance. We want all
we can get of sunshine, encourageainnt,
and inspiration. Life is too short' to
dwell upon things which only hinder paur
growth. If we keep the mind filled' vfith
bright, hopefu. pictures and wholbsome
thoughts-the 'things only which can Help
us on and up in the world--we shall make
infinitely greater progress than by bury
ing ourselves in glowing retrospection.
One of the first lesaun. in lfe I' to
learn to be absolute master of one's own
mind, to clear it of its enemies, and to
I keep it clear. A well-trained mind ivill
never harbor thoughts inimical to success
or happiness. You have the ability- to
choose your nlind's company; you lcan
call up at will any guest you pl ese.
Then why not choose the noblest and
best?-Success for January.

estly given the public for the lib
eral and generous patronage ex
tended me the past year. Whilst it is true
that I have always endeavored to deserve a
fair share of the public's favor, I cannot, at
the same time, shut my eyes to the pleas
ing fact that, notwithstanding that this has
been an unusually unsettled and dull year in
the retail business of Butte, my business
from May Ist to December 31st, has great
ly increased over the same months last year.
Taking some little pride in the fact that
the efforts of myself and my manager, and
his assistants have been thus appreciated, I
am none the less grateful for that appreci
ation; and I assure you that I wish one and
all "A Happy New Year," and many returns.
Yours Very Respectfully,

-you can't. I wouldn't let such a thing
conme to a child of mine if I could help
it-and you can do everything." At such
times his life was dismal and empty and
cheerless, because he was compelled in
his struggle for a living to stay so far
frlom one whose white face and wasted
hands and big blue eyes drew him-drew
him as never pole drew needle. Then
he had always whispered to himself, "Be
a man-be a man."
His breath had always come in sharp
gasps when he reached for mall from the
little box. This time the sharp intake
was not followed with a sigh of relief.
His face wvent livid, his heart went sick.
With trembling lips he turned to the
city editor and said:

The city editor was on his feet in a

belong only to women, is ofton present
with men when it Is least looked for.
"I'm sorry, old man-mighty sorry. Go
