BUTTE, Dec. 0.- Henry Knippenberg,
general manager of the Hecla Mining
company, writes to the Standard that
the experiment of removing the great
mass of snow from the hill above Lion
city with giant powder was tried Sun
day morning under the direction of S.
A. Barbour, the mine superintendent,
and proved successful. ..The heavy ex
plosions resulted in a third immense
snow slide, which carried all the snow
off the side of the hill and at the same
time swept away the Cleopatra mine
tramway and the big blacksmith shop
but no one was injured.
Everything is now regarded as per
fectly safe and the families are moving
back to Lion city from Glendale. Mr.
Knippenberg states that great credit is
due to Mr. Barbour for the heroic man
ner in which he kept his men in line in
the rescue and in cheering up the suf
ferers. Additional information shows
that 14 people were buried in Friday
night's snow slide instead of seven, of
whom 11 were resued. The two slides
IIELEN.t. Dec. 6i.--The state board of
education has had a two days' session
here, (adjourning today. It discussed
ways and means for the erection of the
state institutions. The finance com
mittee reported that in its judgment
there was no law authorizing or justify
ing the issuance of bonds on college
lands for the purpose of raising funds
for the erection of college buildings.
The committee was appointed to in
auire whether the legislature is vested
with power to make laws authorizing
such an issuance of bonds. Nelson
Story of Bozeman presented a resolution
which was adopted, setting forth the
fact that the citizens of Gallatin county
were willing to advance $15,000, the
amount appropriated by the last legis
ture for the erection of college build
ings, and that the board would do all in
its power to protect those making the
advance from losse.

HUMORS OF BANN PUBLISHING.
Aaanosnement .,f Marriages That SHve
Been Uneerlemoniously Interrupted.
A few years ago a ludicrous, albeit
vexations, incident occurred at a church
in Larkhall. A rustic couple, after hav
ing had the banns published the pre
scribed number of times, preoseded to
the church to be joined in holy wedlock.
The service was conducted withaot a
bitch until the officiating elrg ar
rived at that part where he aked,"Wil
liam Wisher, wilt thou have thibswoman
to be thy wedded wife?" when the bride
groom replied with some astonishment
that his name was not William Wisher.
The ceremony was of course suspend
ed, and on investigation being made as
to the cause of the mistake it transpired
that the bridegroom had written to the
sexton of the church requesting him to
have the banns published, and concluded
his letter thus. "So no more from your
well wisher and Mary Williams." The
sexton, supposing that William Wisher
was the name of the intending Benedict,
published the banns accordingly, and
the disappointed couple were compelled
to await the publication of the banns in
their proper names.
The precentor of a country perish
church near Arbroath one Sunday an
nounced from his place that "there was
a solemn purpose of marriage between
Alexander Spink of Fisher's loan and
Elspeth Hackett of Burn wynd," when
the parish beadle, who was something
of a character, suddenly arose and un
ceremoniously interrupted the proceed.
lugs by exclaiming: "That's wrang!
That's wrang! It's no Sanders Spink o'
Fisher's loan that's gaun to marry Els
peth Hackett, but Lang Sanders Spink
o' Smiddy croft." The name of one of
the parties had been wrongly stated in
the proclamation paper. and this was
the way the beadle took to correct it.
Some years ago a middle aged agricul
tural laborer called ur "F the session
clerk of Allos and asked him what the
charge was for publishing the "cries"-i.
e., banns of marriage-three times on
the same Sunday. "A pound," replied
the clerk. "Aye," said the other, "an
what d'ye tak' wheln ye tak' two Sun

reply. "An what d'ye chairge when ye

tic's next query. "Seven and six." an

"Aye, man," rejoined the querist, 'I

The Thrilty Japanea.
What is the raason that Japan has no
poverty problem? One reason is proba
bly to be found in the land system,
which has given to every worker a hold
ing and encouraged him to supply his
wants by his own labor. There is, too,
in Japan a carious absence of ostenta
The hablt of living are in all classes
much the same, and the rich do not out

jewelry. Ther rih spend their money on
curios, which, if thee are costly, is limit

against the big European houses which
ainisterlbuild for themselves. Wealthis
thus not absorbed and is mose ready for
investment in remunerative labor. The
last reason which occurs to the mind of a
traveler with comparatively few oppor
tneities for forming opinions is the
equality of mampers in all classes. Rich
andpoor are alike courteou. It is not
possible to distinguish employer from
laborer by their behavior. All are clean:
all are easy; all arestrained.
The governor lets his child go to the
common school and sit next to the child
of the casual laborer, certain that his
child will pick up no bad manners and
get no contamination in thought or in
person. This equality enables rich and
poor to meet as friends, and gifts can
pass without degradation. The rich no

know to be in need, and friendship be

If you are not feeling strong and
healthy, try Electric Bitters. If "La
Grippe" has left you weak and weary
use Electric Bitters. This remedy acts
directly on liver, stomach and kidneys,
gently aiding those organs to perform
their functions. If you are afflicted
with sick headache, you will find speedy
and permanent relief by taking Electric
Bitters. One trial will convince you
that this is the remedy you need. Large
