Most of pie who had come up on the train I - were help for the various camp transportation companies, ‘‘sav in Park vernacular, while we two, i gentleman and his wife from -ton, South Carolina, were thus only representatives of the tour 's, or “dudes.” evances were in waiting to take ; to the Wylie Hotel, where before ig the Park it was necessary to ugh the formality of registration, ie Sam” keeps a cluse watch upon j urists throughout the government ve, and a report must be sent each i ro the army headquarters from the -is camps and hotels.

By this time we were most friendly terms with our fellow aides” from Charleston, and were :r cnptly christened the ‘‘Yanks and the ' itherners” by the irrepressible “sav ages.” The weather had cleared, al :gh ar. occasional flurry of snow ob -red the sunshine, but it was so cold i before leaving the Wylie Hotel we on all the surplus clothing we had nght with us, and thought longingly ur fur coats back in Maine, riving up from the station before mer we had noted the great stone ir iiner Gate over the Park entrance, heated by Roosevelt in 1903, and had mented upon its inscription: “For benefit and enjoyment of the peo To our disappointment, our en ce to the Park was by another road A led by, instead of under, this im "• ssive gateway, and we have since ied that the privilege of passing be en it belongs to the stages of the and transportation system and not rhe campers. \ story in connection with this same nliner Gateway has recently been re I to me, and its truth was vouched ' by the one who told it. A woman, -vidently a tourist of the “rush” va r • ty, trying to “do” the country in rec time and absolutely ignorant of the i e-fs she was trying to see, was, with ' r “son Willy,” met on a train return mg from the Yellowstone. “Have you i'« n to the Park?” she was asked. “Oh, Jes,” she said. “Willy and I have been there, but we didn’t go in. We looked through the Gardiner Gate and didn’t see anything doing, so we thought we would n’t stop. We want to see something lively, and get our money’s worth. Now in Seattle there was something going on all the time.” However, having learned something about the Yellowstone before we went there. Will and I were in no wise alarm ed by the fact that there seemed “noth ing doing” inside the Gardiner Gate, but drove on, with great expectations. The area of the Park, increased by adjacent Government Forest Reserves is something over 17,000 square miles, and the Circuit Road, over which the aver age tourist makes his six-day coaching trip, is about 150 miles long, and covers but a small proportion of the vast area of Park territory. The wild animals, deer, elk, bear, etc., roam at will throughout the entire Park, but are pro tected from all molestation, and conse quently have no fear of the traveler, and and are to be seen in great numbers. Our party in the four horse stage was a merry one, and we quickly found that the Wylie employees, “savages” though they were, were a jolly crowd of young people, college girls and boys for the most part, who were earning a little money in their summer vacations. After the season’s work was over they were all anticipating a free trip through the Park, by the courtesy of the Wylie management. We speedily learned that the Park has a local vernacular all its own. Besides the “savages” and "dudes” aforesaid, we discovered that “scissor Will uicaui a uinti u mu “U.uv *■ ‘ti» that a “skinner” drove four horses, that the boys who built the fires and carried water, and did the general er rands about the tents were “pack-rats,” while those who took care of the stables were entitled “barn-dogs.” Further more any “spooning” on the part of the "savages,” or any tendency to wander off two by two in the evening, was speed ily dubbed “rotten-logging,” a term more descriptive than elegant. There were many more expressions quite as original as these, but save for learning that a “swattie” is a soldier, this was as far as our education progressed, and at that we felt that our vocabulary was greatly enriched. Soon after leaving tne entrance be hind us, we found ourselveB entering the Gardiner Canyon. The road ran close beside the rushing waters of the Gardi ner River, which it crossed four times within a mile, the steady up grade slow ing the horses down to a walk. On the left roBe a tall pinnacle of rock, at the apex of which balanced an eagle’s nest. As we looked we fancied we saw the craning necks of the eaglets with their wide open beaKS awaiting the return of the parent bird, who much to our disap pointment was not in sight. Electric Peak, that we had seen from Bozeman, lifted its snow-covered head on our right, towering far above the lesser mountains that seemed to hem us in on all sides. The Boiling River, emptying into the Gardiner, and easily distinguished from it by the rising steam, gave us our first glimpse of a phenomenon that was to become a common sight within the next few days. This river was fed by under ground waters from the Mammouth Hot Springs, close at hand. A sharp turn in the road brought us out on a level plat eau, and we drove past Fort Yellow stone, the military center of the Park, anil me iviammom noiei, noi yei open 1 for the season, to the Hot Springs Form ation beyond. Liberty Cap, the extinct crater of a hot spring, a tall grayish white cone forty feet high, formed of overlapping layers of shale-like deposit, was the outpost of the “Formation,” and shortly after passing it we came to a stop at the foot of the Terraces. Here we alighted from the stage to climb up to a view of the Mammoth Hot Springs at close range. The scramble up over the grayish shale-like “forma tion” was a strenuous one, largely owing to the altitude, the lowest valley in the Park being something like 6,000 feet above sea level,—but the strange and wonderful sightB fully repaid the effort. The terraced rock rose tier after tier, covered with a wonderful deposit of deep creamy yellows and browns, and on each tier the boiling, steaming water con stantly overflowed, forming fantastic stalactites of gorgeous cream and gold. The wonderful coloring is due to the con stant trickle of the water, with its de posits of lime silica and sulphur, and if the water for any reason ceases to flow, the deposit quickly loses its brilliant color for the faded grayish white of the surrounding Formation. We picked our way among the many pools of bubbling, boiling water to the point a half mile or 90 distant where the stages had driven to await our coming, feeling that we had Been one of the most wonderful sights of our lives. Will had, of course, been busy with his camera throughout the whole after noon, but his best opportunity came when, after the stage had rounded a sud den turn of the road, the driver pointed with his whip at a deer that had come out of the woods and was about to leis urely cross the road in front of us. The stage came up and stopped, while the deer remained motionless by the road side, eyeing us curiously. Will cautious ly focused the camera, and when I whistled and the deer pricked up its ears and gazed at us intently, the shutter snapped. Our friend Mr. Hays, the Wylie agent at Salt. Lake City, has called the resultant picture “the finest game picture of the Yellowstone he has ever seen,’’ and enlargements from the negative have been universally admired. The next points of interest were the Silver Gate and the Hoodoos, the latter an undescribable jumble of jagged rocks in strange and fantastic shapes, which covered the Bides of the mountain for many acres. The Silver Gate was named from the silvery gray color of the rocks which at that point rre massed in a solid wall high above the road. The Silver Gate paled into insignificance, however, iw t;uiii^ansuii wiin me more impressive Golden Gate, a mile beyond, which well deserves its name. A splendid viaduct has been built there, around the sheer rocky wall of a canyon through which flows the rushing waters of Glen Creek. As the name indicates, the rock forma tion is of a vivid yellow. As the stage rolled around the viaduct, “ohs” and ■•ahs” of admiration arose from the pas sengers. Straight ahead of us the Rus tic Falls splashed their way into the depths of the canyon, and their foamy 1 whiteness, the green of the evergreen j trees on the mountain side, with the | yellow background of the canyon walls, | made an impressive and beautiful pict j ure. A turn in the road immediately after j leaving the falls, brought us to a broad, i open meadow, near our night’s stopping place. Swan Lake Camp, where a warm welcome awaited us from its hospitable matron. Cold from our long ride as we were, the rows of little tents looked most in viting, and we learned with pleasure I that we were to be assigned one of the j “new” ones, little bungalow like affairs, | with wooden frames—a decided improve | ment on the older tents. The “pack I rats” had a brisk fire burning in an air I tight stove, and the little tent was so j cosy and warm, and its appointments so (inviting, that we then and there decided i to advise all our acquaintances and I friend to tour the Park by the “Wylie Way.” The camp consisted of row af ter row of little tents ranged around three sides of a square, the center of which was occupied by a towering pile of wood, ready for the night “camp fire.” An office tent, which was the official camp “rendezvous,” postoffice, general store, etc., a dining tent, a kitchen, ar.d a recreation tent for danc camp was beautifully located at the foot of a sloping hillside, and the dense ever greens of the forest behind made an ideal background. In front sloped the broad meadows down to “Swan Lake,” a pretty iittle sheet of water probably so called because there are no swans there. The circle of snow-clad mountains on the horizon completed a charming picture. The stables were well away from the camp across the meadow, but a visit to them proved most interesting, and the great number of horses, as well as the splendid animals to be seen there, roused no little surprise and admiration. Before supper was served we four “dudes” wardered away up the hill into the woods to explore our surroundings. The view from the top of the hill was well worth the climb, and we gathered specimens of several odd varieties of wild flowers before the pangs of hunger called us back to the dining tent. We lingered awhile in the vicinity of the garbage barrel hoping to see the bears, but they were wary that night and re fused to come while we were watching. After supper the huge campfire was lighted, and “dudes” and “savages” alike gathered around its genial warmth, and popped corn and told stories while the darkness gathered. Mindful of our early start, scheduled for seven o’clock next morning, we sought our tents early and were soon deep in a dre amless sleep in spite of our novel surroundings. GLYCERINE AND BARK PREVENTS APPENDICITIS | The simple mixture of buckthorn bark, Kiycerine, etc., known aa Adler-i-ka, astonishes Belfast people, because Adler-i ka acts on fcOTH lower and upper bowel, ONE SPOON FUL relieves almost ANY CASE constipation, fi'mr stomach or gas. It removes such sur prising foul matter that a few doses often re lieve or prevent appendicitis. A short treat helps chronic stomach trouble. The INSTANT, easy action of Adler-i-ka is as ’ nighing.

Obviously he haB no mon opoly of the virtues. A dog may be faith ful, an elephant may be kind and true, a cat is said to love home and fireside; the parental instincts of the penguin would put nine-tenths of the leaders of our best society to shame. It is not by possessing such attributes that animals become“almost human,” It would be fairer to our furred and feathered friends to say that the man who possesses these traits in fine degree is almost animal. There is a horse of vauJeville fame that reckons simple sums in addition and answers a wide va riety of questions, if my memory serves me; I will even allow him to write his own first name with his hoof in the sand. The show bills call him "human,” yetwe feel no sense of kinship as we watch the performance, even though we should grant him all the ratiocination his exhib itors claim. We simply say,“What a wonderfully clever horse!” bestow a word of praise upon his training, and that is the whole story. I have seen a dog perform agile tricks with prompt obedi ence and obvious enjoyment, and tome he was still a dog. But when some ca nine friend hides on his wash day; when he steals the cat’s milk and pretends he did not; when he slinks in at a door with every expression of eye and limb crying “peccavi,” ah, then I say to myself, "There is something human about that dog.”—Harper’s Magazine. PROMOTING THE POULTRY INDUS TRY Montana Hens to Compete in Egg Laying. An egg-laying contest, to be carried on next year at the Montana State college experiment station in Bozeman under the management of the station poultry de partment is the latest plan of the State Poultry association. The college is ready to undertake the conduct of the contest. ana a committee nas Deen appointed to find out if sufficient interest would be taken to justify the plan, and to formu late rules and regulations. The commit tee consists of Prof. W. F. Schoppe of the college, J. D. Veach of Hubbart, president of the association, W. W. Perry of Kalispell, C. A. Greenfield of of Butte, and J. K. Scott of Grant. Boys’ and Girls’ Poultry Clubs. The Montana State Poultry association will co-operate with the State college ex tension department in starting boys’ and girls’ clubs throughout the State for practical worK in poultry raising, a kind of work very well adapted to young peo ple, and in which they can readily realize some profit and learn valuable lessons. The work will be organized by the college through the county agents and in other ways, and the Poultry association will co operate by furnishing sittings of pure bred eggs to be sold at very low prices to the young poulterers who need help. So far the work of the boys’ snd giris’ clubs started by the college throughout the State has been in corn and potato growing for the boys and canning of fruits and vegetables for the girls. NOT TO LICENSE CATS. The Massachusetts House of Repre sentatives March 1st rejected, by astand ing vote of 101 to 25, the bill to provibe for licensing cats. An adverse report had been made by the committee on Ag riculture and Mr. Frost of Somerville sought to have the original bill substitut ed. Mr. Beardsley of Boston offered an amendment to reduce the license fee for male cats from 50 cents to 25 cents; that for females to remain 50 cents. He de plored the fact that the House should make light of the bill, which he said, was a serious matter. Mr. John L Donovan of Boston said in stead of cats the Legislature should li cense “gypsy moths, bed bugs and poor lawyers.’’ He added: “It is ridiculous to talk about protecting the poor birds, for the same man who votes for the bill will go to the hotel and eat the bird with his wine. He wants the cats prevented from eating the birds so that he can eat them.’’ Mr. Chapman of Ludlow and Mr, Wil liams of Holden spoke against the bill. Mr. Beardsley’s amendment was adopt ed and the bill rejected. PATRIOTISM. Do you Btand for Patriotism?

YOUR KIDNEYS Belfast Residents Must Learn the Import ance of Keeping Them Well. Perfect health means that every organ of the body is performing its functions properly. Perfect health cannot be enjoyed if the kid neys are weak and disordered. Thousands testify that Doan’s Kidney Pills have a reviving action on weak kidneys. What this remedy has done in so many cases of this kind is the best proof of its merit. Read the following. It’s testimony grate fully given by a resident of this section. J. C. Meader. R. F. D. No. 8, Ellsworth. Me., says: “All that I said in praise of Doan’s Kid ney Pills some years ago still holds good. One of the family was caused a great deal of suf fering for years by kidney complaint and Doan s Kidney Pills proved their merit by quickly making a permanent cure. I, myself, have used Doan’s Kidney Pills with good re sults.” Price 60c at all dealers. Don’t simply ask fsr a kidney remedy—get Doan’s Kidney Pills —the same that Mr. Meader had.

A trip to Bermuda at thia time of year is particularly attractive and the special ly conducted one which the Maine Tour ist Agency of Portland, Me., has arrang ed to leave Portland April 11th, makes the journey a very comfortable one for all who can go. The expense from Port land and return is $65. which includes eight days in Bermuda, with ail expenses paid. The beauty and charm of Bermuda is always a revelation to the northern vis itor. Everywhere are beautiful views, odd plant life, tropic flowers, wonderful ly tinted waters. Atmosphere and sur roundings are exquisitely restful, sleep is deep and refreshing, but at the same time the air is invigorating. There are beautiful drives, saddle-riding, tennis, go.f, sea-bathing, all sorts of yachting, concerts, dancing and the numerous social diversions incident to colonial life. Last but not least, the islands have been brought within two days’ journey of New York by frequent and luxurious steamship service. Send to Wm. R. Francis, Maine Tour ist Agency, Press Bldg., Portland Me., for Itinerary of Trip or telephone 504. Decline of the N. E. Cod Fishing. The New England cod fishery is on the de cline. according to the government reports. Last year the catch of cod fish in the Atlantic fell from ninety million pounds to sixty mill ions, while the Alaskan cod fishery increased from eight to fifteen millions. It is said that there are only a few vessels engaged in the cod fishery off the Alaskan coaBt and that there are hundreds of fishing banks where cod fish are plentiful which have as yet been un touched. It is not unlikely that eventually this New England industry will be transferred to the Pacific coast. A Profitable Charter. One of the most remunerative char ters recently closed is that of the steam er Newton, Capt. A. G. Abhott, owned by the New England Coal and Coke Co., to carry coal to Argentine and return with general cargo. It is understood the owners will receive about $50,000 per month. The Newton left Boston March 15th for Lamberts Point, Va., where she will load 7000 tons of coal for Buenos Aires. She will load flaxseed wool and hides for Boston and New York.
