TO TITE ,INTER MOL'NTAIN. lelelna, July 23.-- Work is being pushed int preparation for the state fair. There seems to ile no basis of comparing the probable success of the state fair now with the experience of a1 years Ago, when one was held in this city. The particular productions that enter into a state fair-agriculturq and pure bred livestock-have increased about 5oo per cent. In SRor the product of the arms of Montana was estimated at $3,; on0o,n.0. Now it easily reaches $2o,ooo, ono. tCunting the rang'- production-heef, mutton and wool--the tigures cxceed $j5, OuO,O.O for 1902. Great Increase. This slhovel an increase of $5,/ro,ooo over the prtcedling year. These figures offlr nample viiderce that a great state fair can now Ic mailt:ained In Montanat There has been no opportunity for d galtherinlg of fIrrers and ranchers to corn pare l rodcts for more than 1o yeirs. Such an lopprtunity is offered by a state fair. 'Ihe numbern.r of special premiums of fered by firmns and individuals may ,e cited as an evidence of the interest in the fair. T'he secretary sas notilied this week that the Studclaker Manufa;cturing company m< ould like to offer a iagon for the best exhiblit of produce ftmn one farm in Mou tana. The vehiile is a h;arlmin.lce run about %sagon retailing at $65. Offer a Mower.

The executive committee of the fair is now at work on1 the mineral exhibit. Butte has promised to send an unusual illutration of the greatness of the great est camp. May Be Permanent. The committee has defirnitely decideld to place the speed program entirely in the hands of W. II. <aymnond of Madison county and \V, B. George of Billings. This is considered a guarantee that honest rac ing will be seen at the fair. At the recent mreeting of the fruit inspectors it was decided to give an instructive exhibit of the various ap pliances for the subduing of pe-ti, and if possible to make a showing of infested trees, fruits and plants. fast Track. W\ork already done insures as fast a track as any in the Northwest. It is being put into first-class shape.

FESSORS MAKE INTEREST ING DISCOVERIES BY ASSOCIA'IED -FaRtS, San Diego, Cal., July a3.-The investiga. tion of marine life of the waters of San Diego, by Prof. 'RItter and assistants of the University of California, has resulted in several additions to the biology of the Pacific. A number of new forms have been dis covered within the last few days. One of these is "Peridinium," of the animalculae that cause the water to assume a reddish hue, and that is said to give the character istic llue to the Red Sea. The other specimens discovered are the "radiolaria," with skeletons of silica and of marvelously elaborate patterns which hitherto have been reported only by the fa mlous Challenger expedition to the tropical Atlantic in 2872. The most remarkable discovery, perhaps, is that of the "Sapphirina," whose irrides ccnce view with the plumage of the pea cock, showing in turn violet, purple, green, copper and bronze and at night becoming phosphorent. Numerous specimens of jelly fish have also been found. KILLS SON, THEN HIMSELF Enraged Father Commits Double Crime in Des Moines, Iowa. 25 ASSH IAt 1') $ 5155. ies Moines.

New York, July 23.-There has been an indignation meeting of mosquitoes on Staten island. This was apparent when an army of the pestiferous insects invaded Templeton vil lage hall, where a solemn conference was being held to rid the island of the ano phcles family. The hall was Jammed with delegates representing the various towns. After sev eral speeches and displays of maps it was decided to drain the whole of Staten island and not leave as much as a tomato can full of stagnant breeding water. A committee of public safety was also de cided on. Then the mosquitoes appeared on the scene and the delegates were kept busy beating them off. It is even asserted that the meeting, which was cut short, ad journed before the committeemen on pub lic safety had been chosen.

Drake, the expert typewriter ra ti. shop all this week, Telephone Nid eodg-, GREATEST EFFORT IN THE FAIR LINE ST. LOUIS EXPOSITION WILL QUITE ECLIPSE THE WORLD'S FAIR AT THE WINDY CITY. ENORMOUS ACREAGE USED Ground Covered at St. Louis Is as Large s That at All the Former Exhibitions Combined. St. Louis, July s3.-it is only by com paring the Louisiana Purchase Exposition with other great international expositions that one may gain anything like a correct idea of the immensity of the World's Fair that will open its gates at St. Louis on April o30, 9po4. The Columbia Exposition at Chicago so years ago more nearly approaches the World's Fair at St. Louis than any of the others of the past. Until the present un dertaking assumed shape the Chicago Fair dwarfed all comparisons. Now in turn the Louisiana Purchase Exposition out strips what has heretofore been the world's greatest effort. The Pan-American Expo sition at Buffalo, the Trans-Mississippi at Omaha and the Paris Exposition are also completely outclassed when the dimensions and features of the enterprise at St. Louis are compared. Twice as Large. The World's Fair at St. l.ouis occupies twice as large an area as the most exten sive of all former world's fairs, and covers almost as much ground as the combined areas of the expositions at Chicago, Oma ha, Buffalo an'! Paris. The World's Fair site at St. l.ouis com prlse 'l,24o 0ares. The total acreage of the four larger expositions in this country -Philadelphia, Chicago, (Omaha and Iuf falo--was 2,319 acres. At Chicago the exposition grounds were contained in 633 ches, a fraction more thatn half the size of the grounds at St. Louis. In St. Louis the principal exhibit palaces cover an area of 2s8 acres. In Chicago the exhibit buildings devoted to the same purposes covered an area of 82.2 acres. The I'an American Exposition at iluffalo covered .3,o acres, and the combined exhibit buillings were contained in an area of s5.t acres. The Trans-Mlississippi Exposition at u()a ha was built on a 5o0-acre tract, and the exhibit buildings covered an area of 9.a acres. Profit by Experience. The builders of the 59n4 exposition at St. Louis have profited by experience gained in the construction of former ex positions. Thus it has been possible to construct more buildings, with greater di mensions, of more approved designs at a less cost and in a quicker time than was done in Chicago. As an instance of the benefits derived by St. Louis from the Chi cago experience may be cited the work of the draughtsmen. In Chicago 7o archi tectural draughtsmen and r5 construction engineers were employed. In St. Louis a considerably greater work was done by 3. architectural draughtsmen and 5 construc tion engineers. The enormous proportions of the .nouis iana Purchase Exposition may be in a measure appreciated when the official state ment is given that 38,000 horse-power is required to drive the machinery. At Chi cago I2,ooo horse-power was all that was utilized. PROSTRATED BY OIL FUMES Six Sailors and Big Steamer Meet With Peculiar Accident. BY ASSOCIATED PRESS. New York, July a3.-Six sailors of the steamer Toronto are in the hospital from a peculiar accident. Two of them are in a serious condition.

Captain Whitton asked for volunteers to go into the hold and get the oil back into casks. Six men responded. The fumes of the oil immediately pros trated them. They became delirious in a few minutes and one tried to jump overboard. PAULIST ORDER IN SESSION Internal Management Under Considera tion in New York. BY ASSBOCIATED PRESS. New York, July aj.-Seventeen repre sentatives of the Paulist order from sev eral states have assembled at the Mother house, in this city, for the annual con ference called for by the rules adopted at that conference. Father Deschon, classmate of President Grant, was appointed father superior for the term of nine years.

HAD BEEN KILLING STOCK Boys Will Get the Reward Offered by Ranchers - Animal Weighs 200 Pounds and Showed Fight. AMarysville, July j.-Loulis and Charles Johnson are sporting each half the scalp of a mountain lion in their belts and tell ing their friends how they did it. They set a trap for a bear and caught the big cat, but that detracts nothing from the glory of their achievement, as they had a hard fight to land the game. A reward for the lion had been offered by several ranchers, as the beast had been killing stock with great regularity. Also, a silver tip's tracks had been seen suspi ciously near some of the dead and halh masticated animals. They Were Surprised. So the Johnson boys set a bear tray and visited it regularly every morning. Sat urday, at sun-up, they were treated to a surprise. There was no bear in the trap, but the biggest mountain lion they had ever seen was caught fast by the righ foreleg. The beast, afterwards found to wcigl. fully soo pounds, snarled and snappe4 savagely as the hunters approached and evidently meant to show fight. An Easy Prey. Louis Johnson stood at a safe dist..,ce and shot it through the head. It kicked feebly and fell dead. The boys will now try for the si!ver tip, while they enjoy themselves on the reward offered for the feline.
