Mr. :alch has been with the local

he has advanced steadily until now he

and are sheltered by white wood pavilions

chrysanthemum will be seen. In the first

scattered about single plants so arranged
as to show beauty of outline. Then others
are trained inlto various shapes--perhaps
in the likeness of junk, a mass of blooms,
and made entirely with one shrub. In
booths historical and mythological scenes
are depicted, the landscapes, warriors ad
gods represented by living, blossoming

Asked to Stay There.
Martin came into King & Lowry's saloon
early this morning and asked Charles
Allensworth, the bartender, if he could tie
down in the rear hallway for a little
while. Being given permission, Martin
walked to the rear of the building and laid
down on the floor near the radiator, Ile
did not appear to be intoxicated at the
time he came into the saloon, but look:ld
feeble and weak from sickness.
After a few minutes Allensworth walked
back to where Martin lay and asked him
if he wanted anything. Martin replied
that all he wished was to be left alone for
a few minutes. Allensworth then walkeJ
away and left him lying there.
Several hours later Chief Mulholland
and Judge Boyle found Martin dead.
Seized With Convulsions.
Evidently Martin had attempted to rite
when a convulsion seized him. When
found his hands were clutched as if in
great pain and his eyes were set and
staring. A contusion on the top of his
head was evidently caused by falling
against the radiator. It was not severe
enough to have caused death.
Martin had absolutely nothing in his
pockets to identify hint. A spool of
thread, a tailor's bodkin, a few needles
and piece of chalk gave a clew to his
trade. There were no letters or marks
to show his name.
After considerable inquiry it was
learned that Martin had applied to several
places for employment. He had a tork
leg and was readily remembered by those
who had seen him.
Martin formerly lived in Chicago, where
his sister now lives. He has been working
at Denver and later at Salt Lake. Since
coming to Butte he has found irregular
employment in several shops, but his
tendency to drink prevented him from
holding a position for any great length of

Of a Strange Speoies Found on Islands
in the Pacifio.
From March to August, a year ago, when
the United States fish commission steamer
Albatross was engaged in deep sea ex
plorations among the Hawaiian islands
and westward along the chain of reefs and
islets which reach out from the main
group in the direction of Japan, some very
interesting ornithological investigations
were made on several of the lonesome
islands away off in the 'Pacific. On Iayson,
away out near the middle of the ocean, Mr.
s alter K. Fisher, who made the inquiry
into bird life for the government, was
amazed at the great number of birds and
their surprising tameness.
Popular opinion has held that birds of
all kinds were naturally afraid of man, but
those who have made a study of the sub
ject oppose this theory. Naturally, birds
do not show fear of man until they recog
'nize in man a deady enemy.
There were terns and albatrosses, booby
.blrds, curlewis, finches and man-o'-war
birds in densly. populated colonies all over'
.the island, and beyond protests, such nas

The investigators were able to approach
as close as they desired to record with
camera the domestic duties of mamma
terns, and with tact not much time was
required to get into caressing touch with
any of the winged population.
One of the most characteristic birds of
Layson is the gray backed tern. It lays a
single egg on the sand, and sometismes on
the ,are rock. When the chick is hatched
one of the parents stands sentinel over
the nestling. Approach of the investiga
tors would cause the guardian of a nest to
spread wings slightly, tilt tall and walk
around in circles. Unlike our own tern,
these of the far Pacific islands hold their
bills straight out, like a gull, when flying.
In studying the white tern, or love bird,
it was discovered that the parent in feed
ing its young brought two little fishes in
its bill. It was always two, and how the
provider for the tern household captured
the second fish without unbeaking the first
was a puzzle the investigators could not
work out.-New York Herald.
