Kate used to comb sparks of of her hair,
to the terror of the colored people.

"Oune night about a month ago, about
half an hour before we klft Chicago. a
couple of gentlemen cane into may ear
with tickets entitling them to two lower
berths directly opposite each otlter." said
a sleeping car conductor to a Detroit Free
Prem man. "One of thenm retired inmme
lliately, while his friend said he would
smoke a cigar before turning in. Just be
fore the train started a gentleman auld his
wife entered the car. There were no
berthl left except the two upper one dtli
rtetly over the berths engaged by the two
gentlemen. This did not suit the gentle
man and his wife, and they askedl ane f I
oukld not arrange it so that they could
have a section to themnselves. I saki I
would try. do I went to theI smnoking room
and explainedl the situation to the gentle
man who had elngaged tlwe opxseite lower
berth. 'Why. certainly. I will exchange
any berth with pleasure.' he said. Accorrd
ingly, he occupied the betrtlh over his comn
panion and surrendered his own to the
gentleman and his wife. About 7:310 the
next morning the fun began. The man
who went to bed first woke up uirst. He
uat up on the sklde of his berth,
rubbed his eyes, and surveyed the
situation. Glancing across the aisle
at the lower berth. whkih he thought con
tained his frk.nd, a bright idea semnted to
take possession of hint. He reached down,
and picked up one of his shoes fromn the
floor and cautiously parted the curtains of
the berth. It was dark within so that he
only distinguishetd one fornt, that lying on
the outside. Then he raisee his shoe and
dealt his splpo ed friend a terrifei twhack.
An unearthly fenmale shrick was the re
spouse. I shall never forget the expres
sion that came over the face of the man
with the sloe. He turned all sorts of col
ors as he mat on the edge of his berth star
ina helplessly around him. In the niean
time the husband of tlah abused lady had
jumped out into the aisle Just as the inno.
eent comSantion, who had yielded up his
qartes the nlght before, was sticking hi
head out between the curtains to see what
the row was a about. It looked for a mnl
Sas thogh there would be a riot. It
took several minutes to cool the enraged
lhubaand down .o he could undersmanl the
situatlon. Husband and wife left the train
a couple of hours afterwards."

I"E most important election
in which the people were ever
called upon to participate is
but thirty days off.
Never since the organization of
the territory has the Democracy
been so united or seemingly so in
vincible. Our cause is just, our
candidates invulnerable, and our
victory ought to be certain. There
is but one danger to be feared, and
that is a failure to register. Let
every man that deserves well of
the coming state see to it that he
is not disfranchised by that vicious
and partisan law, which ought to
have been entitled "An act to dis
franchise the farmers, miners and
stockmen of Montana." and which
was born of the first republican
legislature of Montana.
Register. and do so at once, and
thus rebuke the party that enacted
such a law. Delay is dangerous.
In order to vote you must register
on before Sentember i t.
Let the naturalized citizens of
this territory who have been voting
unmolested for years. hunt up
their papers that they have not
seen for ten years,. and go to the
place 'f registration and register.
and at the same time register a
vow to rebuke the political party
that puts you to this great in
convenience and practically dis
franchises you by the absurd pro
vision which requires you to pro
duce your papers. and in some
instances to travel a hundred
miles to register before you can
exercise the rights of freemen.
We ask all who are interested
in good government to read the
platform of our party. Examine
the public and business records
of our candidates, pursue and in
vestigate them in all their rela
tions to the public, to the last and
final analysis, and we are confi
dent that you will find them
worthy Montanians. men who will
guard and protect her interests at
Register and tell your friends to
