Mrs. Mackay is a woman of nediunm height, very dignified in manner, very gentle and sweet-voiced, rather pale, with soft dark hair, always simply dressed and with dark and strongly marked brows und lashes. The beauty of her face lies, how ever, in her eyes, which are large andl full, with a gray iris that becomes v:ulet at tilmes, and pupils that dilate: with emotion. Mrs. Mackay has always been a most le voted wife and mother, as well as irtrenscly loyal to the Roman Catholic chiunh, to whiich she is said to have been a most gen erous contributor. Like her husband, she was deeply affected by the tragic death of h"r oldest son, and for a lonut, time after that -ad event took no part in society. Her Fine London House.

The one wide window, richly draped in somber bro cades and lace, looks out upon St. James' park, and placed at right angles with it is a large writing table, which savors rather of the use than frippery, for Mrs. Mackay is the most methodical and con scientious of correspondents. All about this pretty den are bookcases reaching nearly to the ceiling, well stocked with volumes in all the modern languages. Mrs. Mackay is an acomplished linguist. One or two low chairs, an inlaid tea table, an oriental circular stand and several acces sories in the way of odd tabourets and ottomans complete the furniture. To the left passing from the bookroom and through a door-the panels of which, like all those on this floor, are richly inlaid with intarsia work, that surrounds and architraves being of statuary marble deli cately sculptured in Raphaelsesque designs --you come upon the inner hall or marble vestibule, a charming prologue to the no ble staircase and reception rooms above.

BIG ONES WANTEO THE PHOTO BADLY INTER MOUNTAIN SCORES ANOTHER POINT AND ATTRACTS COMMENT OF METROPOLITAN PAPERS. GROUP ILLUSTRATION OF LATE J. W. MACKEY ET AL Pronounced One of Finest Works of Art Illustrative Which Has Ever Appeared in an American Journal-All Would Have Liked to Have Had the Plate and Some of the Big Ones Ask Loan of It. For newspaper enterprise the Inter Mountain is acquiring a national reputia tion. Butte has many causcs for pride, and the Inter Mountain has just added ;In other one to the list. The half page photographic illustration of the General Grant party of travelers containing the portrait of the late million aire, John W. Mackay, publishel by the lntter Mountain on Monday with the story of Mackay's career and death, has created a furor that reaches clear back to New York City and stirs up a feeling of envy in the hearts of newspaper men in the big gest city in the United States. It is said, by competent judges, that the Inter Moutntain's graphic illustiration of the interesting picture named is eiltal to anything known inl tile business of nIews paper ilu.tration. A dozen big newspa pers in various parts of the country have already applied to this paper for a loan of the Grant-Mackay picture in order to reproduce it, and three or four dozen others have already cribbed the illustration fromt the pages of the Inter Mountain and brought it out as their own. The Denver Post and the New York Trilbune are the latest papers to ask the Intter Mountain for the photograph. The following telegram from the Tribune is a sample of the conimmunications received by the Iiter Mountain since its great feat in newspaper picturing in which it presented to its readers the big group photograph: Tribune Wants Plate. "New Yo, k, July 25.-Editor Inter Mountlini. Tribune would esteem it a great favor if you would lend us photo graph published on first page of your even ing addition of July _t--the mining party, including Mackay and Grant. Will he re turned in good condition and full credit will be given yout inl the Tribune. Willing to pay for it if you desire. Sunday Edl itor. Tribune." Just because the Inter Mountain is ipb lished in the far West is no reason why it should not score a success over the big. gest journals in the United Stales. Still, when it beats such a paper as the S: a Francisco Examiner, it feels that there is reasoni to crow mildly with justifialde pride. The Examiner published the Mac kay-Grant group picture the same day the lntter Mountain did, last Monday, the day after Mackay's death, and a comparison of the illustrations of the two papers will show, the Inter Mountain feels conlident itt saying, that the big San Francisco tnmorl ing daily played eccotid fiddle itn this feat of modern journialism. This being so, Butte has a right to pilumle herself onl her advancemeniit, anlll the Inter Mountain's subscribers ntay be slre that they will receive the best work that can be turned out in the future just the same as in the past, $50-To San Francisco and Return -350 August 4 to 9, inicht.'.:e, the Oregon Short Line will sell excur'iuin tickets to San Francisco and retturn. $s; L.os Au genes, $6o.
