LERKE AND EECORDER-
I hereby respectfully announce myself a cnan
didate for the office of Clerk and Recorder of
Deer Lodge county, subject to the actiQn of the
Republican County Convention.
WILLIAM F. FURAY.
The frequent calls at THE MAIL
office of new-comers inquiring after
small dwelling houses would indi
cate the extreme necessity for houses
of this sort. Almost daily the in
quiry is made, and the calls are
more likely to increase than dimin
ish. One man, who is expecting
his family to arrive, and who is
steadily employed at the Bi-Metallic
millsite, says he has hunted the
town over and finds it impossible to
procure a place for the reception of
his family when they arrive. He
claims that he will be compelled to
move them up to Granite for a time
until some one builds or vacates a
house, but says that a number will
shortly be built near the millsite,
but that he prefers living in town.
It certainly would be a paying in
vestment for some of our local capi
talists to erect a number of small
dwelling houses for rent, and but a
very short time would elapse ere
they would have paid for themselves
over and over again, taking the pre
vailing rents collected for some of
the cottages around town as a basis.
It is to be hoped that some one will
take the matter in hand, and that
strangers will not be turned away
from the Burg for want of a place
for their families to dwell.
The games of ball played by the
Helena and Salt Lake teams at Butte
and Helena- served to but prove the
entire inability of the Helena nine
to cope with their more skillful
saintly brethren. Montana, when
she desires to "lay out" the crack
olub of the Mormon metropolis,
will be compelled to send to Phil
ipsburg or Granite for a nine. The
game played last Sunday on Frank
lin hill between the Granites and
the Philipsburgs served to prove the
excellence of these clubs. Seven
innings were played, as agreed upon,
and the result was 3 to 2 runs, in
favor of the Philipsburgs. Some
exceptionally fine playing was in
dulged in by both clubs, and an un
usually large'amount of enthusiasm
was manifested, both among the
players and on-lookers.
The latest reports from Japan of
the terrible earthquakes and volcan
ic upheavals which occurred there
recently indicate a terrible loss of
life, and vast amount of suffering
from injuries received and the want.
of the necessaries of life. Whole
villages were buried with small
stones, red mud and a few inches of
a.kes on top. The people were lit
erally parboiled alive, it being im
possible in many cases to distin
guish man from woman. The
wounded are receiving treatment at
the school house, in Inawashiro.
Their condition is shocking. Some
have fractured skulls, others broken
limbs, and the faces of a few are
battered so as to be unrecognizable.
There are about a thousand people
in need of help.
Emperor William, while attend
ing the unveiling of the monument
of Prince Frederick Charles at
Frankfort, last week, at breakfast,
gave a toast to German unity. IIe
said: "Forty millions of Germans
would rather die than deliver a sin
gle stone of Alsace-Lorraine to
France." The Germans are pretty
good people generally, and it does
certainly seem pretty hard for the
Big Medicine Man to talk of trad
ing off forty millions of them for a
single stone-in all probability not
even pay rock.

The yellow fever at Jacksonville,
Fla., is still playing great havoc.
Over 10,000 people have left the
city, and among the foremo,;t to
.hak.c the du'st off their feet may be
mentioned the printers of the seve
ral offices, leaving the proprietors
to get out their own papers or fol
low suit. The Times-Union job
office is closed, and the Farmer and
Fruitgrower suspended. It is hard
work to get out the daily Dispatch,
but the editor is making a plucky
fight, and says he will continue the
Dispatch if a printer can be found
who will stay.
Parnell has at last sought redress
in the courts against the London
Times for the latter's infamous
charges against him. The case will
come off before a Scotch tribunal,
and not in London, as was expected
and desired by the Times, where a
jury could easily be packed. Mr.
Parnell has about as sure a thing
against the Times as is possible.
Congressman Glover is being
turned over and rather roughly
handled by the St. Louis papers in
consequence of the recent charge of
the formation of a grain trust by
the enterprising grain dealers of
that city. They claim that it is
not so, and that Mr. Glover is stray
ing from the paths of truth.
If tooting its own horn has any
weight in increasing the circulation
of a newspaper, that great journal,
The St. Louis Republic, certainly
ought to get to the top of the heap,
as it devotes several columns daily
in booming itself.

you get the genuine. Because he can
make more profit he may tell you he has
some just as good, or just the same.

New Cartridge for Mines.
It has been proposed to do away with
the use of explosives in mines where
there use is attended with danger, and
substitute the lately invented cartridge,
one portion of which is filled with a mix
ture of finely divided zinc and zinc oxide,
which collects in the condensers of the
zinc retort, while the ether part is filled
with diluted sulphuric acid. According
to the requirements in this case the cart
ridge is put in its intended place and
then, by suitable mechanism, the acid is
allowed to flow into the zinc, hydrogen is
then evolved, and by its expansive force
the rock is broken down without com
bustion or violent explosion.-Chicago t

le, VInes for the Dwrellng House.
c. FNothing adds more to the appearance
of a place than vines growing about the
e house. If poetry in growing things be
to longs to one class of plants more than to
another it must be that vines are the
poets of the field and garden. I have
'e- seen houses that were as ungraceful in
rs their bare outlines as they could well be
so transformed by the use of vines about
)1- them that you forget all about their for
b- mer ugliness. That was hidden under
the clustering leaves; the slender
Id branches, thrown here and there in the
rd careless, unstudied grace of the true
artist, breaking up all harsh outlines and
destroying all of that primness and for
:y mality characteristic of a house as it
comes from the hand of the carpenter.
Skillful planning by a designer with an
td artistic eye can do much for a.home, but
the vine can do more. The finishing
touch must be made by it. It is not only
a poet, but it is an artist It cannot only
conceal defects, but it is capable of mak
ing them picturesque and striking when
'n given a chance to do so. I was very
is forcibly impressed with the truth of this
1 by seeing a house not long ago, which
had been left in an unfinished state.
1, This condition would have made the
d house an unpleasant thing to see. But
some one had planted vines about it and
a they had clambered to the roof and run
r along the projecting boards of the ends,
covering them with foliage and dropping
g here and there a festoon of greenery
which actually made the building more
attractive than it would have been if the
cornice had been completed, with its
g straight lines and uncompromising an
gles. Do you want something to clamber
Sup to the roof and cover the building
a with foliage, beautiful all through the
f season, but doubly so in the fall! Then
the very plant you are in search of is our
F native ampelopsis or Virginia creeper.
f This vine is to us what the ivy is to Eng
land. It is hardy; it will fasten itself
a to the smoothest surface; it will take
care of itself. What more can you ask?
In fall it will take on colors so brilliant
that it rivals the flowers in the beds be
low.-E. E. Rexford in Vick's Magazine.
Superiority of Women.
"Who is it," cried Miss Susan B.
Anthony a few days ago, "who is it that
fill your penitentiaries? Not women, but
men. And who is it that fill your
churches? Not men, but women."
Now, we maintain without ceasing the
superiority of the gentle sex in every
moral quality that adorns human nature;
and we cannot deny that the vast ma
jority of criminals of every kind are
Men are liable to many temptations
from which women are happily free.
The boisterous passions are stronger in
men than in women. The bones and
muscles of men are harder than those of
women. The insatiable lust for lucre
rages in the heart of men, not of women.
The fierce competitions of life are be
tween men, not women. The rough
work of the world in business and poli
tics and public control, in which hostile
feelings are apt to be generated, is done
by men, not by women. Men haunt the
liquor shop, while women do not enter.
Many men prowl around the streets and
public places at night when women are
enjoying the domestic hearth.-New
Wonders of the Son.
A comparison of all the results of these
labors of so many able men during so
many years proves that the sun is nearly
ninety-three millions of miles from the
earth and that the fiery globe itself is so
large that if a number of worlds as big
as ours were held together like beads on
a string 340 of these world beads would
be required to girdle it around in one
Three hundred and forty pins' heads
thus strung together would go around
your head with some to spare. There
fore, the sun is as much bigger than the
world as your head is bigger than a pin's
How many worlds would it take to
cover the whole surface of the sun? As
many as the number of pins to cover a
pin cushion as big as your head. How
many worlds to fill the space occupied
by the sun? This is easily calculated
when we know the sun's diameter, 860,
000 miles. In round numbers a million
and a quarter of our worlds would oc
cupy a space equal to the whole size of
the sun.-Professor Williams in Youth's
