CLANCY REQUIRES BOSTON & MONTANA TO SHOW Must Let Mullins Look Into Books and Records in Possession of the Com pany-Three Days' Notice. Judge Clancy has made an order requir. ing the Boston & Montana contllany to Showing Some people begin to show age before 0 the meridian of life is reached, or they have lived out half their days. They are prematurely gray, haggard and sickly and seldom free fromn an ache or pain of some description. Cold feet, chilly sensations, stiffness in muscles and joints, weak stomach and poor digestion, lack of energy, and drows. iness, nervousness, etc., show that old age has been reached ahead of time. Bad blood and weak circulation more often produce these miserable feelings and signs of de cay than anything else. An inherited taint or poison of some descrip tion is at work in the sys tem, causing stagnation and a general unhealthy condition of the blood; and this, and not the weight of years is drag lag you down to an untimely old age and making life a protracted torture. For purifying the blood and toning ttup the circulation nothing is equal to . 8. 8.

THINK M'OONALD IS THE BEST EVER Telephone Girls Are De6ply Grateful to A. L. U. Offi. cials for Services. THEY EARN ALL THEY GET, THEY DO, SO THEY DO, NOWI How It All Came About-Foxy McDonald Got the Girls Together at a Function and Then Sprung It on Them, and in a Few Days It Was All Assured -Words of Appreciation for the Company. If there is anyone in this city who .usa an idea that quirk telephone service is confined to the E:ast they should stroll into the othce of genial I)an Mcl)onald, preal. delnt of the American labor union, some dlay when he is ising the 'phone. Of course it is possible that lie has a lwtter teleplholle thanl those tlsed in the rest of the city, but it is a safe wager that the quickness is on the part of the "hello" girls who were so materially assisted by Mr. McDonald in their recent demand for anll increase in salaries. lie that as it may, it is certain that Mr. McDlonald stands high in the estimation of the girls, one of whom yesterday said: "We think that lie is the best man in the worl.." McDonald Speaks of the Girls. In speaking of the organisation which the girls arranged before asking for an in crease, Mr. Mclonaldl said: "One day early in December I was sitting in my of flce when I heard some one knock very timidly at the oflice door. I went to the door and upon openting it was confronted Iby a young lady who said, 'Mr. McDonald, I am a telephone girl anld I cattle to see you about our getting into the union." "I was very much surprised, as I had'po idea that they had ever thought about (he matter. I invited the young lady in ind we talked the matter over. I told her that she had better go back and talk to the girls and arrange so that they might hold a meetintg. "Well, to make the story short, we put up a job on the rest of the girls. One of the young ladies, the one who came to see smie, asked the rest of the girls to a party which she gave at her house. "tin the night the young ladies met at the party, accidentally or otherwise, I found that I had business at the house where the yountg ladies were meeting-I think that I wentt to see the girl's father about some work which he was to do for mie. He Met the Young Ladies. ".At any rate I was there and when I had talked the business I had with the old gentleman over, I started to leave, when he insisted that I should go in and lie introduced to the young ladies. I went in anid met them and some way or another the talk drifted to unionism, and the girls hei.'attic greatly initerestedl. I told them that if they would come to the office some dlay we would talk the matter over. They camie one evening and after I talked and explained things to them they decided that they would join. "I told them that they might lose their position and that in many ways they might fail. You see I was afraid that they would not be able to refrain from talking albottt the matter to outsiders and we might fail before we had any chance to do anything at all, but they insisted they would guard the secret and so the matter was carried forward. "''The time came for the signing of the apllication for a charter and I told the girls that they would have to come up to the office and sign the application. Well, they came so quickly that it took my breath away. They all signed in one day. After they signed I sent word to Mr. Mi|er. the local manager, and told hint that the girls were organized antd demanded an iti crease in wages. "When I saw how they were standing together it did me good, and I am very proud of the way that they acted. I think that the girls deserve what they are get ting, as they do not get any more nIow than any of the girls who work in the stores. I antm glad that I had an opportunity to do the girls a slight service,' modestly said Mr. McDonaldl. An Inter Mountain man happened into the telephone office last night about the tile the girls were getting off work for the day, and they talked entertainingly with htit about the matter. They Earn All They Get. "I think we earn just everything 'we get," said a petite little "hello" girl. "It just smakes us as tired as we can be, aftgr we work all day. You know there are so many people who are in a hurry and who get cross when you do not get them the number that they want at once, and there is always a drumming in your ears, and you know we cannot get cross-we are paid for being good-natured-so we just have to he Ipleasant. We work nine hours, and while the work is not especially hard, still it is conlining. and one has to think all the time. We have a union now, and we have elected all our officers," proudly asserted the young lady. Appreciate Miller. "The management treated us very nicely in giving us what we asked for, and I sat certain that all of the girls appreciate it very much. We are indeed very grateful to the company, and you watch the service fromn now on.' "It takes a long time for a girl to learn, all that there is to know about the 'hello' business," site continued. "In the first place a girl who is nervous would not do at all, as she will get rattled, antd w)leA1, once a girl does that she goes all to se.as the calls come in on you so quickly It when you do get stalled at all you ,qet stalled for good. There are a great many funny things that we have to bear and it is hard to keel, from bursting out laughing, Ioir instance, it will sometimes happen--r yotu can't hIelp it you know-that a young fellow wants to talk to his girl, and we stake a mistake and connect him with a hardware store or butcher shop, and when he finds it out, he says-oh, just awful thintgs, and we have to use our sweetest voice and try and square it. "So many people call us up and ask us to give themn a certain lman's house or a cert'tin store, and they never tell us what the numbler is. You know we then have to go to work and look up the number in the book, atnd that makes it so much harder for us, as we have to keelp other calls wafl lu. while we are doing it. "I ant glad that we got the raise, and we would never have gotten it had it not been for Mr. McDonald. It will give us more Ioney so that we catn spend a lot Ilore of it for"---and her girl nt.turc and thoughts surely overcutme her, for she said, "rib bons and gloves and things." "Don't you think that we deserve the increase?" she said. "()f couttr; of course." What could one say? Meet u.e at tile l'Mister.
