BEET SUGAR COUNTRY That there is very great territory within the arLa of Milutana whecre the soil and climate are adapted to beet sugar culture is claimed by the experts and disputed by nobody. Irri';atini is necessary to the use of much of it. but irrigiattiol is prac tical and assured whether the soil lie de voted to sugar beets or other product;. There is no longer question respecting the profits from this industry, both to the f;trmiir and the manufacturer. A monograph on the subject. recently pullihied by If. C. Taylor of the U'ni versity of Wisconsin, pIresets somlle con clusions of particular interest to the W\est. It i~ his belief that the farmer having land whi.ec cornl can lie raised, or where grain crops canl be ah!ernated, will derive larger gains by devoting his land to those crops than by engaging in the sugar beet busi ness, and he emphasizes the economy and profit all around to come from transfer ring the beet sugar industry to the western lands where corn cannot be raised and where beets can be. True, he raises the questiois as to the albility of the western farmer to pay the cost of irrigation and compete with the products of European countries In the market. But le admits that the policy of protection to new in dustries ins the Uuited States might serve the purpose of establishing the business here, anud he wholly igntores the relative cheapnesp of western lands as a factor in the prubhlti. Incihl itally. here would be an instanc;e where protection would tend to create competition with an established trust inteand of being an influence calcu lated to create one, as the free trader i: avcctrl.l, II to char,.e against protectioi.

[New York Times.i An evening newspaper describes an al tercation ,, twceen an ill natured dog and :iln "aged bicyclist" for whom sympathy is invited by re.:asonl of the fact that he is a very venerable Ilman, being "nearly 6o years of ago." Au age applrotximiating 6o years may lie mlatullre for one who tnakes a habit of bikyihi riding, and to a young and in experienced reporter it lmay seettl that a ,.rsoml of that age would do Ibtter to walk sedately and carry a cane to defend himself against vagrant dogs on the highway; lbut why even a very young re ¶iorter shoold have emnployed the term "atged mat" to designate a person of S7 or sR passes comprehension. In addition to being inaccurate, it involves a blazing itdiscretion from the point of view of the interests of the newspaper, since a rce;it manlly people who are near 6o on either side of the line will be apt to re sililt it as a vra;lltious aflrollt to a large and intlhwnetial laly of citizens who are not aged ill anly lproter sense of the term, and lhose claint to that title and to the riespect antit conslli:ration it carries with it will not miaterialize" for another quar ter of a century at least.

Jhie liar of Montana will meet k:r circn:lstanccs of more than ordi n .t ,,,rrw to pay a last kind tribute to ,.r frielnd, our companion, our profes ,n.,,: I,rother, who is no more in this life. !I ;:title spirit has passed away. lie has ...1 upon a lst sunset; his dreams of n .~rttality are realized. A few tlays . u,1, anml he mingled among his fellows, L I.y his triumphant spirit explores the i,, !,t of the unknown world. While we 1. ,Ct explored one world, he has entered I:;.mi the happy realization of the second. I't doLwn in the very flower of his .,,nt mianhood; but he has tts all at a I:-.vu:ittage:--what to us is the great :; -tery,the veil, to him is an open book. I1," walks upon the clouds; he now gazes ;;,,n the battlements of heaven, bathed in tI, limpid and eternal waters, and wan i, t. in the Elysian fields. 1Ii him there is no more doubt, no more ic- or heartaches, no more mystery. Ile - tilday the master of his fate: from the t ,.ernt to the unlimited future is but a incle step. The line of separation between the pres it tad the great unseen is so slight that .e ahlnost pass it unaware. Death, after :,11, is but a sleep, and waking is eternal. I. t us repeat, our friend is dead. Grief . no tongue. If colors were articulate ,.11 black could speak, could it, by mourn ,I nuImbers, lessen one pang we feel? I sold cypress boughs soften the unspeak :,',Ie woe that the finger of death inspires? Sirrowing, weeping, welling words. For ,it:ht ? The throat is still parched, the y,"s red and the heart numb. Death has I,"- terror when he halts old tottering :i and relegates the worn and rusty hIa -ulimtetnts of spiritual force. l)eath has 1,-u terror when his icy hand touches the tilpled and the maimed into sleep. But I b.,lt has full terror when he strikes bud ,nm itanhood, florescent mentality and :lithsomcme hearts. I ,w shadows crossed his heart. Some ., verses may have come to his happiness. :tit in the inchoate stages of manhood, he w: s always the same gay, merry fellow: Most life to him was spring. In him na ture vied with her precedents in physical pi rfection, and fired his soul with a per liptual flame of restless action. He was a;lw:ays moving-ever enlivening his life with that agility which went hand in hand with the sunshine of his soul. Ilis was the jaunty grace of wanton caprice: no overhanging bough in the forest of life too high that he would not es.ay a leap; no craggy height so dizzy NO NEW DEPOT IN SIGHT YET GENERAL PASSENGER AGENT FEE OF THE NORTHERN PACIFIC ROAD IS SILENT. When General Passenger Agent C. S. Fee of the Northern Pacific was in Butte yesterday hie didl not wax eloquent over the. new Northern Pacific depot that has been building here for several years--on lpaper. Ile maintained a discreet silence on that subject when he was telling his callers about park travel and the nice trains run on his road. The reason Mr. Fee had nothing to say wn:l because there was nothing doing in the dl.iot line, the situation being unchanged. It is no fault of Mr. Fee's, however, as it is noi secret that the present depot makes him tired every time he looks at it. The company wants to put in a new depot or to join with the other railroad companies in building a union depot, but nevcr has been able to get the matter sit:rted properly. I lce the company sought to build a ldepot of its own, but it claimed men own ing land on which it was proposed to locate the depot asked too exorbitant figures for it. "While, of course. I know very little more about it than the general public, as it is a matter belonging higher up, I be lieve now and always did that the company wan.ts to build a new depot here or ar range with the other roads for better h'lt facilities," said General Agent Merriman. "I think they are considering the mat tI.r with the idea of not paying for the property for a site three or four times its valse.. There is no doubt the company ,:nlll like to see a depot here in keeping Siiih the importance of the town. I hope satelhinlg will be done, but as I said, I gnym. of course, in the dark about any p.ans." PERSONAL NOTES R. G.

Zimmerman, one of Helena's plo leer citizens, is attending the grand lodge oif K. of P. Mr. Zimmerman is known as one of the proprietors of the Cosmopolitan hotel in the early days of Helena, then the leading hotel in this territory. iHe has lany old friends in Butte. that he would not mount up and up ini the exhilaration of intrepidity; no breathless brink that he would not hazard his life upon for the flushed cheek of daring; no unst:lilc footing that he would not re joice in a minute's fluttering fear of fail. ing. And so he met his death in the pitch ing current of the legal battle. I'eform ance of duty led him on and filled him till the fatal moment. Nature, the deification of force, the symn bol of life in death and death in life, put out the spark and touched with decayingi contamination every muscle, every ten don, every fibre, every nerve in the splendid emboditment of mental and physical fruita tion. But a short time ago I read a little oratorical gem, tender, touching and true, delivered by him over a deceased member of the Montana bar, who had but recently cast his lot and died among strangers. I little thought as I read that simple tribute to his friend, that so soon we would be called upon to speak of all that remains of John Cotter. Nothing that his brethren of the bar of Montana can say of him will be too full of pathos. In so far as we can, let us emulate his good quali ties; let us crown his name with a wreath of affectionate memory. I last met himn at the nation's capital; he greeted me with kindly and encourag ing words; he offered me generous aid and wise suggestions. I will always recall how out of a kind and affectionate heart he gently led a little boy among the per fumed flowers of the White House grounds; that innocent child paid him a priceless tribute: "I e was good to me, and told me a story about the rabbit, andI he will tell me some more"-not in this life. Childhood's unerring instinct discovers the best in man. lie had faith in God. His wisdom and love, faith in the Christ, as the expounder of a philosophy of the cheerful endurance antd peaceful resigna tion, faith in the possibility of finding in all experience a stepping stone to higher things above all, faith in that immortality which will give back the lost and provide wider epheres of usefulness to the ever growing soul. Cotter knew that this life atmounts to nothing unless we can see the loom of another life on the horizon above. All, rest thee now, for rest is sweet To weary hands and way worn feet. What though the shadows fell so soon, Ere faded out tile golden noon: God gives, Who knoweth what is best, Thy tired body easeful rest, No trouble mars thy placid brow, Nor any pain. Aht, rest thee now! EMMETT CALLAHAN, Baker City, Ore. SAYS SIEBENALER HAS MISUSED HER WIFE OF ALDERMAN SECURES A DIVORCE ON GROUNDS OF 'EXTREME CRUELTY. Mrs. Frances Siebenaler, wife of Alder man Albert G. Sicbenaler, was divorced from the latter on the ground of cruelty in Judge Ilarney's court this morning. Sicbenaler made no appearance, and the woman and a friend, a Mr. Henry, gave testimony as to the alleged cruelty of the alderman. Mrs. Sicbenaler was so overcome that she talked almost under her breath, and the court could not hear her at first, al though her chair was right under the judge's bench. Attorney Bruce Kremer, the lady's coun sel. interrogated her for the benefit of the court. "Mrs. Siebenaler, are you the plaintiff in this case?" The lady made a reply under her breath, and the lawyer said: "You have charged Mr. Siebenaler with cruelty in your complaint. I'll ask you if that is true; if it is true, tell the court what specific act of cruelty was committed against you by Mr. Sicbenaler." The fair plaintiff began to talk in an inaudible voice, and the court said: "You'll have to talk a little louder." Kremer-He drove you from your home at 2 o'clhck in the morning, did he? Mrs. Sichebenalcr--le did. Kremer-He struck you, also, did he? Mrs. Siebenalcr-Yes, sir. It was then explained to the court that Mrs. Sichbenaler desired the household fur niture made over to her, and that the horse and buggy of the Siehenaler menage had been granted her I,y Siebenaler. Mr. lHenry then took the stand and tes tified that Siebenalcr had to him confessed to striking the plaintiff. Henry had vis ited at the home of the Siebenalers and he had observed the conduct of the de fendant to the plaintiff. The pair did not get along very well, said he. At the close of the evidence the decree was granted and the plaintitT left the court room, free and smiling. MORE POWER FOR PONTIFF American Federation of Catholio So cieties Adopts a Resolution.
