But, somehow, a look at that "Dummy" makes a man leary in placing his coin. Rowan is a big,. raw-boned, square-jawed, husky glutton for punishment.

"There are many reasons why the sug gestion of Missoula as a candidate for baselball h'onors is pertinent at this time. There is no better advertisement for a town than a crack baseball team and the people of Missoula recognize the necessity of giving this place all of the publicity possible. Missoula is growing rapidly, but none too fast and it will be to the city's advantage to keep the name of Missoula before the public as much as possible. "With the ever-increasing population it is not expecting too much to say that Missoula will be able to support a good baseball team. There are many lovers of the sport here now, who would welcome the opportunity of attending good league ga:mes should the town be given a place in the new circuit that will be arranged in the near future.

BUBONIC PLAGUE ON SHIP HELD UP AT METROPOLIS Thirty-one in the Crew and Five Passen gers Must Remain on 'Plague In fected Vessel Indefinitely. Y S AS(OCIATED t'R SS. New Y'ork, Dec. i7.-Tl'hree cases of bubonic plague are under treatment in the Swinburne Island hospital at Quarantine hospilals. The cases are the first and sec ond cooks and the second steward of the Prince .ine steamer Saxon Prince from Durban. The first Ima taken ill, according to the repiort of Captain Jameson, was the secc ond cook. lie first complained to the cap tain when the ship was out two weeks. The steamer left Durban November 9. The other two cases appeared two weeks ago. Thle history of the cases make a complete chain of inflection from the time of the exposure of the first man at l)urban to the time of tile arrival. The crew was ashore at I)urban and it was undoubtedly there the disease was contracted. The first patient is convalescent, but the other two are still under treatment. The total numbler of the crew is I3. There are five passengers on board, a wolllan anl four children. The steamer will be sent to sea to discharge the water and sand ballast taken alhoard at I)urban. She will then return to quaraittine and the passengers and crew will be transferred to Hoffman Island where they will be held to days for observation. JUDGE M'CLERNAN HAS MORE THAiN HIS SHARE Likely That a Redistribution of the Dis trict Court Work Will Be Made Other Courts Are All Up. It is proballe that there will be a change in the distribution of work among the three district judges after January T. Judge McClernan has expressed himself in favor of such a change because his court is now the most crowded of the three. Judge Harney is up with his work and Judge Clancy has attended to all of the cases that can be taken up now. At present all of the criminal and pro bate business goes to Judge McClernan's division, and he also takes up all of the appeals from justice courts, besides trying some civil cases. l'his is considered too much work for this department, as com pared to that done by the other courts, and the change is likely. Since Judge McClernan has been on the bench he has worked very hard. Court has been in session nearly continuously, and a large ilumlber of cases have been tried. This has given the other judges an opportunity to catch up in their work, and they have gotten things in good shape. A decision on a new division of busi ness has not been reached by the judges yet. It is tnot likely that the critminal business will be removed to another court, but the probate will probably be changed.

By the way,' it is reported here in San Francisco that Ike has disposed of his property interests in Monttana and is to become a permanent resident bf California. How much truth there is in the story is not known, because, as is well known, Morehouse is not very voluble and does not do much talking about himself or his business.
