THE CASCADE HOTEL.
The rapidly increasing patronage that
has been thronging the Cascade hotel has
necessitated the building of an extended
As was announced in lastweek's LEAD
ER, the work has commenced and already
the frame part is up, the sides nearly
boarded and the entire structure will be
completed in about 20 days.
James Knapp has the contract, employ
ing five men and said to a reporter yes
terday, "When completed this will be
one of the best hotels in the city and as
far as the cuisine department is concern
ed the Casbade now has an artist."
The new building will be as follows:
The hotel stands on First avenue south
facing the north and upon entering, the
first room will be used as a bar room, but
Mr. Burke will not take out license until
in the spring. The second room will be
elegantly fitted up and used as a parlor
and on the east of this room will be a
hallway leading upstairs.
Leaving the parlor you will step into a
splendidly lighted dining room 20x36
feet in size with a pantry between that
and the kitchen. The dining room will
be fitted up in the latest style and with
the latest conveniences known to modern
The next room on the ground floor is
the one where the good things to eat are
prepared-the kitchen will be well light
ed, with plenty of room and from which
will be cut two bedrooms for the use of
s the help. There will also be two other
bedrooms on the lower floor, makingnine
rooms and one hallway down stairs.
The upstairs will contain 18 bedrooms
and a hallway running the entire length
of the building, 95 feet. The bedrooms
will be on each side of the hall and at the
back end of the building will be a room
112x25 fitted up with cots and expressly
for the 25 cent trade.
The entire building will be 25x95 feet,
two stories high and contain 27 rooms,
which with the pure air and splendid
light that each will be provided with, can
but make the Cascade a popular place of
r resort to travelers.
SMr. Burke intends having this one of
the best first class houses in the city and

THE METH.O)ITT SONG SERVICE.
The Methodist Song Service Sunday
evening was one of the pleasantest exer
cises we have attended in Great Falls.
The church was well filled with an ap
preciative audience. Such entertainment
is to be encouraged since it not only
makes a beautiful service, but keeps and
develops an interest in music. The story
of these unhappy people is inspiring in
itself and the selections well rendered as
they were, added much to its sentiment i
and effect. The choir must have spent I
much time in preparation, which was
made up as follows:
Misses Gremm and Trigg, Mrs. Curtis
and Mrs. Clark, assisted by Messrs. Haw
kins, COutright, Thompson and Dodsor, -
with Mrs. Campbell as organist. In the
riddle of human life it is not from pleas
ant conditions that lessons are most prof

unfortunate make real the joys of the

The Manitoba Must Build.
Many new situations in railroad mat
ters affecting the northwest seem to arise
I as results of the Union Pacificand North
y, western combination. One of these
d seems to be the forcing of the Manitoba
- system to a more speedy construction of
its Pacific coast extension from Great
Falls. The Union has notified the Man
i itoba that the joint tariff agreement, by
f means of which the latter reached Port
11 land from Butte, will be canceled, and as
the Northern will certainly not give it
re any coast facilities, it will be compelled
to build its own projected line more
is speedily. Another result seems to be the
rs probable absorption of the Oregon Pa
cific into the combination, giving the sys
tem another terminal at Yaquina bay. It
11 will be found, in its developments, to be
er the most important and farreaching in
se its consequences of any railroad move yet

HELP YOUR NEIGHBOR.
A Little Bit of Altruism Hse Power to
Bestow Unpurehasable Happiness.
An organization has recently been
formed in this country, formed of men
and women-the latter preponderating
whose motive and creed are as simple as
they are lofty. To become a member and
subscribe to the tenets of this organiza
tion, it is necessary to agree to one thing,
to be pledged to one act. It is that each
member shall, each and every day of his
life, perform at least one act for the good
of a fellow being.
In this age of selfishness it is refresh
ing to learn that an assemblage of hu
man beings can be found whose watch
word is altruism, and who bind them
selves to forget self at least once every
twenty-four hours. The a t,. in which
we Il;e seems one in which the plant un
selfishness finds a poor soil indeed. It
grows sporadically, not generally, and is
too often a stunted and weakly affair.
And yet the need of altruism, of self for
getting, is more widespread every year.
The rich grow richer, and, vice versa,
the poor grow poorer. Selfishness, on
the one hand, and sorrow on the other
are growing quantities. Any measure
that will lead toward warming int. life
the chilling embers of altruism must
have the sanction and support of all
right minded men and women. It is a
small thing, indeed, to devote one im
pulse, one act each day, to the lightening
of some other mortal's life burdens. Op
portunities offer to all of us at home and
in the bustle and whirl of business life.
There are heavy hearts all about us
that we may make brighter; there are
gloom and despair, and there are "gray
days" that we can render more endura
ble by the sunshine of a kindly deed or
sincerely spoken words. It is not neces
sary to bear the badge of the Red Cross
society to bind up the wounded or allevi
ate pain. The keenest hurts do not flow
blood, and the sorest bruises are not
those of the flesh. They can be reached

and cured by the exercise of the divine
qualities of sympathy and unselfishness,
and can be healed by those that never
graduated in a school for trained nurses.
In every eighteen hours of waking life
there are at least as many opportunities
for the display of a practical, unostenta
tious bit of unselfishness that will make
the recipient happier and the bestower
happy as well. The organization re
ferred to is one that should find encour
agement from all that can realize what
it is to be poor and friendless and hope
less. And even if they can not, it will
at least be possible to give intelligent
sympathy, to perform a small act of
pure unselfishness for the mere pleasure
which such doing confers. They will
find that a little bit of altruism has pow
er to bestow a happiness not purchasable
and a delight beyond the scope of a
bank note or a check to bestow. The
sum of human happiness is not so great
that individuals may not add thereto,
and it is far easier to do this than most
people imagine.-Pittsburg Bulletin.
Signs of the Time.
It is said that there is no surer test of
hard times than can be found in the ad
vertisements of the newspapers. When
the columns are filled with advertise
ments offering expensive articles for sale
it is to be considered ominous, because
the rich are the first to feel the pressure
and begin retrenchment by getting rid of
some of their luxuries. If there is any
thing in this rule, hard times are in the
I near future, for the papers during the
past two or three weeks have been liter
s ally crowded with the offers of gentle
: men who are in apparent distressand are
r offering dog carts, broughams, victorias,
horses an I -ll the other accessories of
r private stables, as well as bronzes and
bits of bri-a-brac, to the highest bidder.
e It does i. se,.in, from casual observa
tion, that aiybod.y in New York can be
v very hard pushed for money. The dis
4 play which is made in the streets and at
I the theatre indicates boundless wealth.
Wall street, however, shows some signs
of distress. Money has been very tight
during the past three months. A few
days ago it had got up to 10 per cent..
though in the early part of the summer,
and when business is usually supposed to
be stagnant, 3 and 4I per cent. ruled
easily.-Once a Week.
Her Mother's Ghost
A mutsriage which w.a to have taken
place at Campden the other night, was
interrupted in an unex:pected way. The
contracting parties, Henry Brown and
Miss Mary Morgan, stood before Rev. Mr.
Clayton. preparatory to becoming man
and wife. A portion of the service had
been already read, about fifty witnesses
being present, when the bride uttered a
loud scream. All eyes were immediately
fixed upon her. She was seen to raise
her hand and point toward a corner of
the church. The next moment she fell
on the floor in a s.'oon and had to be
carried out. Physicians worked with
her for nearly an hour before she was
restored to consciousness. When fully
recovered she gave a curisue explanation
of her conduct. Her mother, who died
four months ago, was opposed to her
marriage with Brown. The marriage
was for a time delayed, but after Mrs.
Morgan's death arrangements for it were
pushed. Miss Morgan says that just
when :she was about to pronounce the
binding words she raised her eyes and
saw her mother's ghost; then she fainted.
The wedding was postponed for several
days.-New York Journal.
