Wre Coming to the Surface in the
Skip When It Caught Unex
pectedly and Dumped.
Williamn Salfkey, a stat in- tender at
the Anaconda mine, is dad at the rooms
of the Montana l'ndertnking company
and, that Assistant Superintendo'nt
George Mcetie, Forenian Guerge An
drews, Mike O'Neill and Jerry O'Leary
were not killed or seriously injured, is
a remarkable combination of good luck
and rare presence of mliid.
The accident, which la cnedrr about 5
o'clock last eveting, was of a very un
usual nature. The five men were com
Ing to the surface from the 1,600-foot
leved on the skip Instead of waiting for
the regular stfely cage, and for this pur
pose, the machinery at the top had been
set so that the skip would not dump as
it does when loaded with ore.
Was Instantly Killed.
All went well till the skip had reached
within .', f's t of th' surface, when for
some untticountazlt reason it caught
and dumnIp' Intu an ore chute, throwing
Salfkey on his head anl killing hint il
most tnrt attaneously.
When the skip iaught the other oi
cupants had the presence of mind to
hang on for their lives and consequently
they escaped without injury.

cause of death and it nas decided to

The President Gets a Protest Against

fort to protect dttoi animals, etc., and
incidentally denouncing thce heal of the t

tempted to exonerate himself at first In
reply, but finally gave up, remarking to f
a friend that any one should be able to v
appreciate a desire so intensely human." t
"'Mr. Iltoosevlt's explanation is the c
last word and diagnosed it means that
humanity still loves to kill, loves a com- h
bat, enjoys suffering. The country boy
gloats to shoot a rabbit, the Spaniard I
adores a bull fight, the cultured Anglo
Saxon revels in a rIng contest, fine la
dies endanger their necks to sec the
death throes of a miserable fox, and the {
pigmles of Central Africa joyfully pur
sue an elephant all day, sticking darts
in his eyes to blind him, and hamstring
him when he is helpless."
An American Crowd.
(Washington Star.)
"There is something fascinating about t
a crowd," said the alert person.
"Yes," answered the languid philoso
pher, "there is always the charm of un
certainty about a crowd; you can never
tell from a distance whether it is caused t
by a prince, a politlctin, a prizeflghter,
or a planist."

Immigrants Are Coming.
(Great Falls Tribune.)
The first arrivals on account of the
Great Northern excurs!ons are making

They have generally gone out into P

Pantry Conveniences.
My pantry has two or three home
made conveniences that are products of
our inventive genius; at least we nev-r
find them in a rented pantry until we
put them there, says a contributor to
Good Housekeeping. One is a narrow
shelf, not more than three inches wide,
placed where it can be most easily
reached; sometimes it is a long one un
der a broad, high shelf; sometimes a
set of short ones in a space between
window casing and wall. Its purpose
is to hold such articles as baking powder
can, salt, pepper and various seasonings
that have their home in bottles or small
tin boxes. The shelf is narrow, so that
everything may he in front, with no
possibility of being crowded behind any
thing else. A row of small-headed wire
nails driven into a strip of wood fast
ened to the wall, in easy rtach of the
hand, makes my second comfort. Thee
nails are three or four Inches apart and
project an inch or c trifle over. Every
thing hangable-spoons, castors, egg
beaters, ete.--finds a place there, a
single article on each nail. A second
row, higher up, holds the less fre
quently used things when the lower nails
are in danger of being crowded.
Remembered the Kids.
(Chicago Ttecord-Herald.)
The president's daughter, Miss Alice
Roosevelt, is very young, scarcely 18,
and has passed nearly all her life in the
seclusion of the school room. Of experi
ence in the gteat rush-away world of
work and fashion she has had none, but
from the day she came with her pa
rents into the White House she has been
overwhelmed with attention and flattery.
She Chas been wined and dined and
feted to an extent that might easily
have turned the head of a much older
woman; through it all she has remained
the simple, unassuming, merry-hearted
American girl she was when it began.
She shows this constantly in little un
espected acts of thoughtfulness and
bursts of enthusiasm. The other day
one of the grand dames on Connecticut
avenue gave a luncheon in her honor.
Quite unlike one of the cabinet minis
ters' daughters. who created a stir in
fashionable society by haughtily an
nouncing that she considered lunch
parties plebian, and hence refused to at
tend any this winter, Miss Alice has in
variably accepted her invitations, and
did this one.
It was a very artistic affair. The
dining room was as beautiful as a dream
a hen ife young guests were ushered out
into it. u'at glass and silver flowers in
prof suron, pink-shaded candelabra, a
fountain trickling In the near-by con
servatory, and a stringrd orchestra back
of some tall palms, made a scene iti
for fairyland.
For each guest there was a souvenir
of a unique teapoot. As the girls took
their places at the dainty round table,
Miss Alice spied the tiny teapot bearing
her name. She caught it up, and with
utterly unconscious but unselfish impul.
siveness, exclaimed rapturously:
"My, oh-h-h! Isn't that just the cut
est thing that ever was? And won't
the kids go wild over it when I give it
to them?"
The "kids," of course, are Baby
Quentin, Archibald and Ethel, the
president's children, whose merry pankaS
are keeping all Washington laughing.
These New Games.
(New York Sun.)
The fashionable physician hadi told
his patient what he thought was neges
sary to restore her to complete health
after the wear and tear of a hard popinl
season. She was to take a brief Sputh
ern trip, give up all social pleasures for
a while and diet with moderate produce.
She looked thoughtful and took in his
advice. After he had told her what to
eat and what to avoid she spoke for the
first time.
"And how about squash, doctor?"
she asked.
"Squash?" he repeated, with a tone
l of surprise in his voice. "Of course,
you may eat it if you want to, I didn't
suppose you cared for it,"
"Eat it?" she repe*te4 In 4isgust. "l
don't want to eat 1t,-b'.t I want tc
play it."
The physician flushed slightly, re.
sport that he -had so little time fol
sport, that he could not keep up with
all the new games, and told her to play
it all she wanted to,
For "Spotty" Furniture.
Highly polished tables and chairs have
a way of developing spots of white, espe.
cially where a hot dish has stood of
where hot water has been spilled. Equal
parts of linseed oil and alcohol rubbed
on such a spot will usually make it
vanish. Another plan is to cever such
a spot with baking soda, then hold a
heated flatiron close down over the
soda, not near enough, however, to in
jure the varnish. After a little take the
iron away, and brush off the soda. Cam
phor is another good all-round agent
for restoring varnish, and when rubbed
over blistered or Whitened spots will
bring beck much of the original luster.
Itajian Kris Kringle.
Kris Kringle is a woman in the minds
of little Italian children-ugly and old,
but boundlessly benevolent, and she is
called La Befana' The legend has it
that La Befana refused to go to her win
low and salute the three wise men who
were passing. She has been repenting
her discourtesy ever since and shows her
penitence by benevolence to children.
La Befana is nearly 2,000 years old.
