Arabian Knights in Slang.
(Copyright by J. W. Scott.) J. W. SCOTT. J. W. Scott, reporter of the Inter Mountain, is rapidly winning his way to the front as a writer of fiction. Recently he sold a collection of sketches to an Eastern publishing house for $250 and having parted with only the serial rights is now negotiating with the publisher for the book rights of the work. The sketches are entitled "Arabian Knights in Slang" and are delightfully quaint and humorous. They are now running ini the Philadelphia Press. Be low is printed one of the tales of the Arabian Knights related by the irrepres sible Johnny Hardin, who is the medium through which these familiar instances are introduced in the slang of the day.

Zebrlia iwull have a gtdlt timll e. But Zebra felt Iretty sick over his 'quI( n, and he mloped aroutud and did the de:t:lh',1 head at the feast tct most of the tille; and when Riordan and the vizier :n, lIhe. balance of the push went onl the ss ell hunts fixed up for his entertaionment lihed sit at the palace by himself and feel ItI. (One day when Riordan and his outoit went after bear Zebra was mooning in his room looking out of the window;l antt after Riordan got out of sight he see the qtleen.l alid o of her swell ladies blow into the garden. Ten skates in masks waltzed ill after thltem, and whetn tile quteen claipped her hands, tlhose guys shook their masks and joined tile ladies, and another plug fell out of a tree and blew up to the lqueent. 'Then there were doings-dancineg and revelry and frivolous conduct. Well, when Zebra saw that lie felt bet ter. IHe saw Riordan was in the same boat he was and he chirped up right away ; and he was so gay when Riordan got back that Riordan wanted to know what brought him to. Zebra hung out a long time. but finally he joined the Tattle club and sqluealed on the qtueet atnd her ladies, anil then he told Riordan about himself. Riordan was disgusted all right when he heard the news. lie was so sore he says to Zebra: "Say, you and I are pikers; we got no iusiness hert.. L.et's blow this whole game ;and go on tile road hoboing. I'm sick of the world anyway." Zebra said he'd go with hint provided he'd come back if they found soml0e fellow worse s tuck than they were. So they went, jumpling the palace on the qtuiet. 'lThey ho fed it a long ways, and one day they canel tot a tree by the seashore and sat down under it to rest their faces and hands. Pretty soon a black pillar or col umn111111 or Olll(netlillg eainle utp out of the sea and started for the shore. Whetn they see the columnl cotntillng they climbed the tree, sooni; because they didn't know what kind of a gaime it was. Well, when it got near they saw it was one of those genii that people were suckers enough to believe in in those times. The genie was a big black tuig. nold he had a glass box with steel lncks to it on his head. Hie put the mox dto\wn at the foot of the tree, and Riordan and Zebra thought it was all off with them, Buit the genic didn't see them; and ihe opelned tile box and the swellest kind of a dame steplped out. She was one of those haghitty dames and a good looker for fair, and after the genie said he was sleepy and that he'dl loved her since Ihe swiped her on her weddling day, site sat down and he went to sleep with his head on her lap. Thcn the datule ehpotted the boys in tile tree, and she ordered them to come off their perch. Riordan tried to get excused, but she threatened to wake the genie and have them skimetered, and they fell into line. She was the giant's wife fine and proper, but when the boys got down she put his head on the ground and made love to them like an old maid in a comedy. She already had 98 fellows on the string, she told Riordan and Zebra, and she said thy just completed the century. She said the genie might lock her up in his glass box and keep her at his country place at the bottom of the sea as much as he liked, but she'd do hinm just the samne, and that he was a kind of a Molly boy to her anyway and that he'd look like thirty cents Itbefore she got through with him. When the talk sagged she told Zebra andI Riordan she was wleary allnI to go and sign with somebod(y else, nlto they ducked. Well, when the boys had g'ot away :L bit Riordan says, "Well,. if a big slob of a demonu like that gets the hn.ks thrown into hinm, we haveunt sto much of a kick. I.et's go back to tiowll," Andi they blew back to litrdanl's palace, and hle wetnt into business again lit the old stand. tBut lie was still stre and he hal the (tueetl a;ind thle io laties itii the it funnyly I'ys skimllitertd tbhisildll thi ears. and then lie se't lip tlte rulet to Inltrty girl every day aind have her skimitired the next.

At one of the ports where the vessel stopped to trade with the Indians, IBlondeau became the of hot air about how it would break her young heart to die without bidding Diny a fond adieu. So the sultan sent for Dinh, who was a pretty smooth article hefself. Diny came and after weeping considerably on Saryzade's shirt waist, asked Sarty t6 spring one of her lovely fairy stories for the last time before they said'a long 'fare well. Springing fairy tales was Saryzade's long and hasty. She could unwind yarns till the cows came home. And Riordan being willing to do her that favor as a last ong on him, she opened up and told one of the stories you find in the book. I Well, when Riordan's office hours came he had to skip, blit the story was only half done, and he wanted to hear how it came out. So he told Saryzade it was all right with her till the next day; and thevizite who was hanging around outside with the undertaker, went and got a bun on wheat he got the tip. The next morning Saryzade finished thS yarn and started another, and she worked that graft for a thousand nights. Rior dan was a glutton for stories; he never got enough. At the end of that time Zary zade had seven children-zwei twins and' one triplets--and she hit Riordan for a free pardoi on naccount of the kids: and he plardoned her and told her she was the ibst thin he'd sItruck yet, and that she'd siltuared the womatn troubltl for him for good slttd could keep her jo, is long at she wantted it.

Mrs. George Moulthrop entertained Thursday evening at ping-pong in honolt of Miss Mae Stuart. The guests were Miss Mae-Stuart, Miss SCHOOL OF MINES HAS BRIGHT GIRL STUDENTS, MISS JOSIE KELLETT, Young Lady Student at School of Mines. There are probably many people in Butte who will be surprised to learn that four of the brighests students at the School of Mines are young women. Wo man's emancipation from old time preju dice is continually being exercised in new directions. Only recently has the study of archi tecture been seriously taken up by women. Miss Lucy Kemper, one of Butte's bright est and most progressive girls is pursuing a course in architecture and drawing under the able direction of Prof. N. Leonard. From her infancy Miss Kemper was fond of amusing herself with pencil and MISS LUCY KEMPER, Who Is Taking a Course in Architecture in the School of Mines. brush and many hours of juvenile days were spent in building wonderful edifices of her alphabet blocks. Architecture is properly within the scope of what women may do. On the average the feminine conception of lines of beauty and artistic 'lfect, grade better thatr the masculine. In the domain of domestic ar chitecture an intelligent woman may he expected to show greater fines:;e a'ld judg. ment in the planning of a house than a man. The new departure in this line is one of dignity and one which woman miay follow with credit. Miss Isabel little comies all the way from Baltimore, Maryland, to study elec trical engineering. She is now in the second year of a four year course Miss Little's four year :ourse will Avis Short, Miss Charlotte Cahoon, Dr. Grace Cahoon, Mr. and Mrs. George Clark. Mr. afi1i Mrs. George E.

Miss Bessie Chandlers of Salt Lake and Miss Delilah Raymond of Sheridan, both graduates of the Rowland Hall school at Salt Lake, are at the Lennox, ascdmpanied thoroughly prepare her for valuable as sistance in her father's office and it is not improbable that eventually she may flolow the profession. Miss Clara Clark has shown much zeal in taking up the study of mining engineer ing. Her father is interested in mininr and her future plans are not as yet cryse talized. She may perhaps assist her father in his work. Miss Josie Kellet is content to foliow in the well beaten and 'orthodox paths of teaching juvenile humanity. She is studi ously engaged in the preparatory depart ment and will take a normal course later. Miss Kellet is already the posser,ar of several diplomas of no mean merit, being a graduate of a standard Kansas City academy and of the Butte High school, although still in her 'teens. She cones of an ambitious family of girls and her sis ter, Miss Mary Kellet, has just returned from a three year course at the Emerson School of Oratory in Boston. Professor Leonard states that he is in receipt every day of voluminous corres pondence from all over the state in regard to the opportunities held out ny the School of Mines for women. It i: not imlprobable that the roster of women students in the near future, will be con siderably lengthened by the names of Montana's ambitious and progressive girls. by Mrs. J. Cabell, who comes to secure pupils for the school. Miss Chandler will remain several days and Miss Raymond will continue to her home in Sheridan. Mrs. Cabell returns to Salt Lake next week. Mrs. T.
