Testing the Eyes Sometimes when people get spec tacles which suit them, they go on wearing them for years without having their sight tested to discover whether any change has taken place. This is wrong. All who wear glasses should have their eyes tested at intervals, even if the necessity be not apparent to them. As a general rule, spectacles for old sight require changing about every three years, but it is desirable that the sight should be carefully tested every two years. Whenever you feet uneasy in your spectacles, don't hesitate to call and see us. Always glad to help you. If no change is necessary we will tell you.

Denver, March So.-Fred Boscovits, the Hungarian pianist, is dead from general debility. He was 67 years old. Mr. Bos. covitz was the last living pupil of Chopin. He was born in Budapest, Hungary, and had been in America as years. Mr. Boscovits came to Denver last Sep tember and opened a school here. Illness overtook him and he was placed in St. Joseph's hospital, where he died. His only living relative In this country was his wife, who resldes In Clveland. She hae been commtuniesaed wlti PATRICK MAY VICTIM OF A DREAD MALADY Patrick J. May, the well-known citizen who ran for public administrator on the fsuion ticket last fall, died It Cheyenne Saturday of miners' consumption. The news of his death reached this city yester day. The death of Mr. May was unex pected, and the news was heard by his many friends here with deep regret. Patrick May was a resident of Butte for eight years and during that time he was prominently connected with the Miners' union and took an active part in local poli tics. He had a very wide circle of friends in Butte, all of whom will feel bereaved at his death. Mr. May died while on his way to Kan sas City, where he was going to join his relatives, having left this city on account of the serious condition of his health. He had suffered from the illness which carried him off for some time, and had been persuaded by friends to leave for the city named with the hope of recover ing his health. Kansas City was his early home and he had lived there for years. When he reached Cheyenne he became too weak to travel farther, and he was taken off the train to a hospital, where he died. He left this.city last Tuesday. He belonged to the Butte Easles and the lodge of that order at Cheyenne took care of him there. His remains will be taken to Kansas City for burial. Mr. May was 44 years old and unmar ried. He leaves a brother, John May, who is a resident of Kansas City. During Sheriff Furey's term of office Mr. May was a county jailer. Hlis brother is a promi nent Missouri republican, being a member HOW JACK JOLLY SHOT DOWN JAMES Account in Nome Paper of Murder Done By Former Butte Man in Alaska. THREE SHOTS, ONE AFTER HIS FOE LAY PROSTRATE Chief of Polieo Held Under Bond, After Jury Had Found He Was Responsible for James' Death-"You Don't Want Any Trouble With Mel" Said Jolly, as His Enemy Lay Weltering in His Blood Here is the story, from the Nome Gold Digger of January z4, of the shooting of Samuel James at Nome City by Chief of Police Jack Jolly, one time marshal of Butte in the early days, and a well known Montana character: "The old adage, 'Dead men tell no tales,' probably flashed through the fever ish brain of Chief of Police John Jackson Jolly when, after sending two bullets into the body of Police Oflicer Samuel James and gloating over his horrible dced for a few seconds, he sent a final leaden pellet crashing into the skull of his dy ing victim lying helpless on the frozen street. And this was the reward of Ofli cer James at the hands of his chief, whom he had shielded many times by false testimony, always willing to slave for two years, and who, it is said, had at one time saved his life. During a Blizzard. "The killing of Oficer James, which has stirred the entire city to the very foundations, occurred during the raging blizzard last Friday afternoon about 3 o'clock in Front street, opposite Simson Brothers. The dying man never spoke after sinking unconscious to the street, and expired thirty minuts later on the operating table in the Holy Cross hospi tal. "Chief Jolly, after directing the atten tion of the awe-stricken crowd which had gathered at the sound of the shots, to a small deringer which lay half con cealed under James' cap, calmly sheathed his murderous gun and walked to the federal jail, where he gave himself up to the authorities. Monday he was held to await the action of the grand jury in S5,oco bond. Friday night City Physician Derbyshire, assisted by Dr. Hill, held an autopsy at the city morgue. It was found that three shots had taken effect, one in the left side of the neck just above the collar bone, one through the left wrist, and the third entered the left cheek. Dr. Hill states that the wound in the neck was probably the first one he re ceived. "Saturday afternoon an inquest was held In the United States commissioner's court. The jury, after listening to the testimony of about ten witnesses, re turned a verdict to the effect that Samuel James came to his death by gunshot wounds inflicted by a gun in the hands of J. J. Jolly. Held Under Bond. "The preliminary examination, held last Monday at the United States district court rooms, as the commissioner's room was inadequate to accommodate the large crowd, resulted in holding Chief Jolly in $S,ooo bonds to await the action of the grand jury. The decision of Judge Reed was a great surprise to a majority of the citizens. It was the consensus of opinion that he should have held the defendant without bail or exonerated him. A few who are in close touch with the officlal allege that the judge was between the 'devil and the deep sea,' and to pacify all parties he 'straddled the fence.' "The testimony of all the witnesses except in two cases was very similar. Ed Stevens, a boy of is, was the star wit ness. He testified that James only ad vanced one step toward Jolly, and when he was down Jolly made two steps for. ward and, after looking at his victim for a few seconds, fired the third shot. Stevens is positive that Jolly said, 'You don't want any trouble withl me, James.' The deceased's reply was indistinct." Demand for Draft Horses. 5PaCIAL TO THI INTER OUNTAIN.

RUMOR OF A NEW TELEPHONE ROUTE Report That Utah Company Intends to Put Lines in Montana and Idaho. MILLER SAYS HE HAS NOT HEARD OF THE SCHEME Manager of the Bell Company Does Not Believe New Concern Can Make - Money in This Community-Not Large Enough to Support Two Companies New Concerns Are Generally Failures. "I have heard nothing of the matter, and suppose it is another of those rumor, that are always floating ar"llunl athot Itne lines being built in here," said u lanagi Miller of the iBll Telephone collllan when questioned in regard to the relpo, that the Utah Tehlephone company intended building a line into this state. "There have been a number of stories of ths I sort that never came to anything, ;and iit some few instances the lines have been really built, but they never I;atled for any length of time. "At first the Bell cotmpany wnas inclined to buy the rival concerns out, bIut that got to be a tiresome policy after a time and the last few attempts have been decided failures in a financial way. They died a natural death.

It simply confusts every one antd compels all businesas lnl to keep two telephonies in their offices in-tead of one, being a source of expense rather than saving. As I say, I do not know anything about the proposi tion any more than what has been our experience in the past. I know the re sult of previots attempts anti I judge front the maxim that history repeats it self. They may be intending to build, but I doubt it."
