The Elks of Butte are rubbing the
velvet off their horns and coming in
from the ranges in anticipation of a
big time at Anaconda next Tuesday
, T .....
evening. Long and short, fat and lean,
homely and handsome they II all be
ti ere. And great will be the day of
their going.
These Elks are not of the four-footc l
species, though the "babies" of the local
lodge, McCartney and Hopkins, declare
with one voice that they saw a time not
long ago when four legs would have
come in very handy. However, this
vas just after they had passed from the
nsaverlck stage into the genuine article,
and therefore cuts a small figure.
On next Tuesday evening a large herd
of the "faithful" will parade the streets
of the copper city, and in the evening
will be rounded up at the Margaret
theater, where they will give a minstrel
performance. Elks from all parts of
the state will be in attendance, and
careful preparations have been made to
have a show that will do honor to the
t igranization.
At the regular meeting of Silver Bow
"Marche done! Marche done! Hi-i-l
dere, geet apalong," and Napoleon Pel
letier hunched forward and pushed on
the reins. He was clattering along in
his buckboard, bound for the village. He
had suddenly spied another team com
ing toward him, and Napoleon always^
u anted to produce a good impression
as to the speed he had between the
thills. The old horse with the hip
knocked down was making pretty good
time when he met Jase Ferguson. Jase
pulled up. So did Napoleon.
"Boo hoo, Nape."
''Bo' jour, Faggusong."
"What ye drivin'?"
"Aw-w-w, he hen prattee good wan."
"Any p'tic'lar advantage in havin'
»im three-cornered?" asked Ferguson
pointing to the knocked down hip.
Napoleon canted his head to one side,
raised his eye-brows and shrugged his
"Aw-w-w, he go dat fas, dat he don*
geet tam' for to h'is' heem laig op."
"Pretty speedy, then, is he?"
"Tal yo' wa't dat bosses ban do. I
leeve ma plae' 'bout Free a ha'f o'c-loeks
to-morrow afternoons an' I geet on dis'
plae' 'bout four an' som' past o'clocks
dis' afternoons. W'at yo' t'ink, hey?"
"I think you're a dandy," said Fer
gu-, on. "They ought to send you to
congress, Napoleon. But say, what's the
matter with talkin' shift? I' got a hoss
here that vou may like."
Napoleon looked at the horse and
then at Jase suspiciously. The animal
that the Yankee drove was a really
handsome creature.
"Aw, honest, Injun, Nape, I'm willin'
to trade. I git sick of a hoss o' quick,
ye know."
'!Soni' thi'g ban ail dat hosses w'at yo'
hay'," persisted the French-CanadUn,
still suspicious.
"He's all right, tight, sound and kind,"
fiald Ferguson, "jest with the exception
that he don't look as well as some
"He ban look good en'of for me," de
clared Napoleon after a survey of the
"Wal, ef he suits, 'nough sail," replied
Jase. "Some folks like their hosse--, to
look a little lietter'n thon he does, that's
all. But if he's the kind of a hoss you
like, then you'll like jest this kind of
a hoss."
"I like est eef yo' say dat Fing wance
ovaire ageen," paid Napoleon.
"I said, "if that is the kind of a hoss
you like, why, it's jest lhe kind of hoss
you'll like!' "
"Dat 'Merlean langwidge fonne som'

"He fars' r-rat hosses," declared Pel
letier. "Only Fing he do ees bite w'en

"Bites when he eats?" repeated Fer
guson. "Well, he would be a funny
hoss if he didn't."
"Mabbe so," responded Napoleon,
calmly. "But som' piple don't lak' deir

When Napoleon started away he was
a bit slack in his reining. His new ac
quisition staggered out into the ditch
and fell down. The French-Canadian
leaped out and sat on the animal's head.
While he crouched there he waived his
h-at before the horse's eyes. The cre
ature never blinked.
"Ary!" yelled Napoleon at Jase, who
was, just hitching the hack-strap and
preparing to drive away.
"Aw. yo' ban de liar mans. Dat
hosses he can saw nottin's 't all. W'at
for yo' do dat onto maself?"
"I told ye he was blind," said Fer
guson. "P'raps I didn't use jes that
word, but I told ye that he didn't look
asi well as some hosses."
But Napoleon wasn't satisfied. He
shouted: "An' den yo' tal to me dat he
jas'-de-hoss-I lak', he jas'-de-hoss-I
lak.' "
Ferguson got into his wagon and
picked lip the reins. He turned and
said calmly:
"Nape, the English language is too
much for ye. The next time ye start
out to trade hosses, ye'd better git an'
official interpreter."
Ferguson was out buying cattle, and
he spent that night at a tavern in an
adfoinlrg. town. ..
When he went nut to the stable to
get his horse in the morning the hos
tler asked him:
"Fay. where'd ye git that saw mill on

"Is that hoss a cribber?" asked Fer
"Ci-'bber? Is he? Wal, when ye git
hime ye nut him to work on yer wood
pile an' he'll heat a portable saw mill."

Serious lÆine Accident. 1
Mic-hael Nealis, assistant blacksmith at
the Colusa-arrot mine, met with an at*
cident list evening which may result iii
death. The rod connecting the piston
with the fly wheel of the air compressor
was out of order and Nta'is was asked '
to repair it. In trying to replace it he j
was caught by the belt and crushed be- j
tween it and the wheel. ;i j
Those of his fellow workmen who were j
near the compressor rushed to his as- ;
sistance and an ambulance was immedi- !
ately summoned from St. James' hos- I
pital. At the hospital Dr. Alexander
dressed the wounds of the injured man.
who was made as comfortable as pos
sible under the circumstances.
An examination showed that his skull
had been seriously fractured, his right
side crushed so badly that the lung 3
were injured and his head and body
painfully cut and bruised.
The injured man has one brother In
Everett and three in Butte, those in this
c-ity being members of the Miners'
union. He is 24 years old and unmarried.

.The march of innovasion of Klg Edward
VII at Windsor goes on. He has just
shocked the underlings there by turning
into a ibilliard room the apartment for
years inhabited by John Brown, the late
Muoen's most devoted attendant. Afttr
Brown's death the room was sealed with
a brass plate, bearing an inscription In
Victoria's own hand, extolling his vir
tues. Those occupying similar positions
to Brown's look upon the king's act as
a sacrilege.
Some enterprising person in Glasgow
has sent over vvliat he claims are the
measurements of Shamrock II. The
length over all is said to be 137 feet,
beam 24 feet, and water line close to
the 'JO foot limit. These figures are In
teresting, but premature. To be frank
about it, they are guesswork and noth
ing else. The measurements of the
Shamrock will be kown when Measurer
ITyslop of the New York Yacht club
puts his tape line on the boat. That
will be just before the race, and until
th-n all allleged measurement figures
may be set down as counterfeit.
