CHIEF SANGER AND
HIS FOLDING BED THRILLING NARRATION OF HOW FIREFIGHTER AND A COUCH CAME TO GRIEF. IT SHUT UP WITH HIM Sanger Was Peacefully Dreaming of Home, Sweet Home, When the Bed Folded Him in Its Embrace. Pete Sanger, Butte's genial fire chitf, is mnintaining a thick silence on the subject of folding heds. If one cares to see himn displany ill the synlptomns of acute nmental anguish. he has but to mention folding lleds to the cllief. If the chief has one pet abotiniation it is that kind of lied that folds up when in repose. Now Pete wouldt't have this story told for worlds. In some mannler it canie over from Great Falls, where the chief is now disalissilng the tfficacy of water in sutlodl ing flames. T'lihis is the way it happIeneid: A Piano Folding Bed. Chief Sanger arrived at (;reat Falls late at night and was at once shiown to his room in the Colhh block. lie was accottm ipanied by one of his men, I'. J. ('leary. In the ronom was a forlitlg Ied that in its leisure llOments telescope'd itself into an upright piano. "lere is where I take the high dive into the pillows," said Pete, with a con tented sigh when he gazed uponi that divan. "This is where I give' a Iplayful ih itation of the 'Sleepling ieauity.' " lie was tired fromii his long rile and the snowy linen Iooked go odI to himl. " 'od bless the ma:in who first invented ttl sp, so said Sanchllo 'anza, alid so say I,' " lie quoted anld disiappceared beneath the covers. Pete was soon drcaminlg of sailing ldown Silver low creek in the good yacht He liance, and he heard the lappiing of waves and the getle whisplering of the wind through the tries. lie was alout to tie the yacht to the wharf, ltctu- Clalig I T'he chief sat tip J n bed and rubbed his eyes. Clang. clang, claing, .onedil a big hell in the distance. The gallant chliif recognized the fire alarm, and still thinking that hlie was in lButte, preparIled ti respond to the call of dntty. lHis first thought was to get into his raitnuiCut andil slide lowi the pole. Bit Dazed. lie glnt tip in sectionis. 1e coutldi't undersltalnd where lie vwas, and lie pullled it somiething in a tlald desire to shake itt the lethargy that enthralled himt The foldinlg hd promplltly closied dlown atirl a smlothered whoop frotll betweetn the uppelllr and nether itillstoone l cnnouned t li falct that uitte's fire chief was a pirisonetr. Again lie tore loose a yell that went two or three tittmes around the block and finallly reached the oflice. Lights glimmered :ill over the house within a few second.s. Sounlds of liurryinlg feet were heard itl the hallways. The cry for hellp had been heard and tllmany were cominltlg to the rescue. It Sat on Sanger. When assistance camne the fohling hied was cahnlly sitting down ill the chief and his lbedlfellow, seemlingly enjoyilng the joke. A mlscellanelus assortment of armlls andil legs protruded froml the beil; fainit yells leaked out from under the smothering covers. Somie oine' gav;l\ an etnrgletic tig at the lied and it didln't liludge. 'then smnie bril liant mnindl suiggested that a charge of powder lie placed utider the inlferinal ima chline and the prisotners rescued from tile deliris. Various other plalns were offered, when somie one whll knew how to reach the vital spot of a foldinlg lied, pulled a lever and all was over. They Took to the Boards. The remainder of the niight the chief and his colmpanion splent on the floor. Now lwhen anyone says anything about hedsl that fold uip the chief looks mysteri ois and buys the drinks for the crowd. JAIL BREAKING CHARGE AGAINST RODGERS NULL Justice Court Jury Decides That He Was Illegally Held in Jail at the Time He Escaped. Pat Rodgers was acquitted of the charge of jail breaking by the jury in Justice Danzer's court at Meaderville. The de fense showed to the satisfaction of the six men that Rodgers was not legally held at the time of the jail delivery. Jailer William Dolan was the principal witness for the prosecution. His testi mony tended to show that Patrick Rodgers did not assault him, but that he simply ran out when the bars were opened. It was then shown by the defense that there had been no commitment in the case of Rodgers. The record of Department 3 of the district court showed that Rodgers was remanded to jail in default of bail, but that there had been no regular com mitment. On this evidence it was argued by counsel for the defendant that Rodgers was simply a visitor at the jail, and was justified in walking out when the oppor tunity came. It is understood that the charge of second degree assault, which was filed in the district court some time ago, will not be prosecuted.

Your mothers and grandmothers never thought of using anything else for Indi gestion or Billiousness. Doctors were scarce, and they seldom heard of Appen dicitis, Nervous Prostration or Heart fail ure, etc. They used August Flower to clean out the system and stop airrmenta. tion of undigested food, regulate thb ac tion of the liver, stimulate the nervous and organic action of the system, and that is all they took when feeling dull and bad with headaches and other aches, You only need a few doses of Green's August Flower, in liquid form, to make you sat isfied there is nothing serious the matter with you, You can get this reliable rem edy at Newbro Drug Co, and J.

SCHOOL CENSUS IS LOWER Fully 1,000 Children Less In School Dis trict Number One Than There Were Last Year. At the meeting of the school board last night a number of substitute teachers were appointed. It was decided to add another new school in East Butte, and new equip ment for the McKinley was ordered. A report from the census taker was re ceived and complaints heard from those objecting to the transfer of their children from one school to another. Substitute Teachers. Among the teachers appointed to the substitute list are: J. H. Jackson, I1. R. Ilazel, Louis Nydegger, Lavina Ericsson, Adelaide Rogier, Sallie M. Dillon, Freda Moritz, Georgia O'Neill, Tena Fox, Mary Lally, Lizzie Fitzgerald, Ella Ballard, Jeanette Lane, Marie McCoy, Katherine McGrath, Anniec 1losi anl. Clara Tillot sUhn. Clerk Thomas Richardcs made his report, showing a total of t15·.55 children in School District No, a-fully r,ooo less than last year. The teachers' committee reported favor ably on a new school to accommlodate the residents of East Butte. A small build ing can be rented at small cost to the dis trict, and children who attend the lower grades can be accotmmllldated. In the umatter of transfers the teachers' crmnlllittee were rctluestcil to investigate andil report at the next meeting. The trouble arose from the fact that some of the classes are so crowded that proper at tention cannot le given the pupils. To obviate this, Mr. Young transferred sev eral pupils, with the result that complaints lhave bIeen mitade. Truant Officers Busy. It was reported that the new truant oflicers are alreadly at work and have greatly raided the thard in rounding iup those children inclineid to Iplay on the street dulring school hours. Auditcd Iills amllouting to $3,616.5o .ere a:riroved and ordered paid. Tlhe new rule relating to employing of teachers was w o|tt'icially adopted. This rule illakes it obligatory on the applicant for a positimton inl the Buttle schools to have not less than two years' experience, except \h llen a grladual;te fr omll a normal, when only one year's xpelrilce is necessary.
