United States Commissioner Wood yes terday heard a case in which I. P. Stray er, once a dentist and now a carpenter, was the plaintiff and the mercantile firm of MacRae & Solveson the defendant. It was alleged in the complaint that last March Strayer went to MacRae and sold him a watch and tool chest, the sale be ing conditional upon redemption with an added consideration of $2.50. Strayer draws a quarterly pension of $30 from the government and offered his voucher as security. This was sent to the store of the defendant firm, address ed to Strayer by agreement. Strayer did not come to the store to indorse the pa pers and they were sent to him at Ana conda in care of a bank. The clerk at the bank opened the letter to see what he had to collect. Strayer preferred a charge against the firm for opening mail. The testimony showed that he had tried to "compro mise" the case for a consideration, but the defendant would not agree to this. The defndant's motion to dismiss the case was not opposed by the govern ment's attorney and the charge was dis missed. Hotel Oxford Only first class house between Bil lings and. Red Lodge.

THOMA S-THE AUTHORESS An Original Poem by the Gifted Writ er—Some of Her Best Works. The telegraphic dispatches of Wednes day announcing the suicide of Edith M. Thomas, the gifted writer, came as a . great shock to her thousands of admir ers. Not alone as a writer of fiction was she noted, but for her poems, which have been translated into all foreign tongues. Her best known stories, "Your Money or Your Life," "Kriss Cross" and "Modern Rosalind" have had a great sale. Her tender short stories have been read with avidity. She wrote for the best magazines. Not long ago Edith Thomas, became interested in the slums of New York and in the university extension work there. So entirely did she give herself up to the work that she became one of the band of noble women who went to live in ,..e slums, to work for their better ment. She was always Interested in the little children and this became her life work. Writing lteeame second to her, and her stories were often of the slums and of the children. She became, so the brief dispatch states, so discouraged be cause of the misery among the poor she could not help or prevent that, coupled with her poor health, it became too much for iter sensitive nature, and a pistol sjiot solved for her the mystery of life. Not many women, fortunately for the world, possess her intensely sympathetic, sensitive nature. She was too keenly alive to the miseries and woe of others. 3 et she was one of the most cheerful, aftable of companions, always ready and willing to aid by pen or hand in every worthy cause. Mrs. H. V. Loebinger, formerly a cel ebrated grand opera singer, under the name of Sofia Monte, travelled to Eu rope with Miss Thomas and not'only retains a vivid impression ot the gifted woman but the original of a poem writ ten by her on board the steamer. "We had a gifted group, 14 artists in all. It was. two weeks before the c osing of the Paris Salon ana many were going to see the close. It is cus tomary to give some kind of an enter tainment and on this occasion it was giv en two nights before we landed. Every artist on board had to contribute some thing of his own handiwork done on the steamer. The two sculptors were almost at a loss but finally one gave photo graphic copies of his work and the other took an Edam cheese and using the center as a disc made an exact reproduc tion of the American copper cent. "We had a deck boy who was simply a marvel of beauty. 1 have never seen such a handsome l>oy, about 15 and called Martin. The artist, Miss Clara Me Chesney of Oakland, California, paint ed him in four poses as her contribution. Miss Thomas, not knowing this, made him the subject of her poem. After the concert she gave me the poem as a sou venir. The entertainment was a great ; success. My sister, whose grand opera i name is klfriila Kodha, tier own name 1 leaving off the family name of Neuber ger, had not made her debut in opera, only in concert but she sang. Not long before I had made my debut before the emperor at Mettz and sang of course. Miss Thomas read her poem. "The paintings and works of art were numbered, the numbers placed in a hat. The passengers paid 25 cents each for a draw, the money going to the Sailors' Orphan and Widows' Home. So what was worth sometimes many thousands, went for a quarter. I never have seen in all my travels such an aggregation of talent as on board. It was the steam- ! er Maasden of the Holland line. "The news of her death I think will not be a surprise to her Intimate friends. This time I speak of, in 1895, she was going to Switzerland with her physician for her health. She looked as if she were in a decline then. She was the es sence of true womanliness and possessed a rare charm of manner. Her voice was very musical although she was very plain in face and in apparel. Most un assuming in manner yet very dignified. She was very thin, very tail." Mrs. Loebinger is the founder of the Monti Relief society of New York the largest relief society in the world solely composed of women. In this way she learned much of the work of Mrs. Thom as In the slums. Mrs. Loebinger has left the stage, appearing only in charitable work. Her sister Elfrida Rodha, sang this week at the Verein des Künste in Germany. All club women are interested in uni versity extension work, and the proceeds of the Thompson lecture will go partial ly to aid in that work, the work which in reality caused the death of Edith M. Thomas. The poem read by her on the Maasden was as follows and has never before ap peared in print. MARTIN—THE SEA SWALLOW. All in blue, from his knee to his neck, Martin patrols the sand-white deck, Plying his busy broom. All day long he goes up and down; Blue are his eyes and his cheeks so brown Are touched with an apricot bloom. I On his red lips is a roguish smile. His eyes send a sidelong twinkle, the while His broom he steadily plies. The sea is a world of flickering dreams. And I' dream that Martin is not what he seems But a rover in disguise. If Cupid e'er dwelt in the Netherlands, I would say he had 'scaped his mother's hands Ar.d stolen away to sea! Martin, Martin, the mischief that lies In the sunny depths of your two blue eyes, Tells me that you are he! Or if not so—a sea swallow brave. Your life like the petrels', the life of the wave, And you Just as fleeting as they. In the port we shall rest, but back you will fly, Martin—a sea swallow, Martin good-bye Fair fortune be with you alway. EDITH M. THOMAS. At sea, June ISth, 1S95. Edwin A.
