Mary Leijan, a bride of four months, has begun suit in the district court for a divorce from Charles Leijan. Extreme cruelty is alleged. The complaint says that Mary Lindforth and Charles Leijan were married in Butte August 7, 9o03. It alleges that soon after they had taken the marriage vows he began to treat her with great cruelty. The complaint alleges that on Novembcr as Leijan struck and kicked her, and that she was ill for a long time afterward from the effects of the rough treatment. Again last Wednesday the defendant is alleged to have beaten her. Mrs. Leijan asks that she be allowed to assume her maiden name and that a reasonable alimony be allowed her. William Morgan has applied for a divorce from Clara Morgan on the ground of abandonment. The complaint states that the couple were married at Pearl, Ill., October 15, z895.

Ilauser was the complaining witness, charging the theft of one silver dollar from the Eagle phar macy, was decided in favor of the defend ant in Justice Harrington's court today. Heckler sued to recover money alleged to be due on contract, and as a counter action the defendant in that suit brought the charges of theft, and alleged that a marked dollar had been found in Heckler's possession after it had been spent over the counter. The evidence showed that the money was not in the defendant's possession, and he was discharged. Souvenirs given away tomorrow at the Smith Grocery Co., 349 South Main. Capt. Hannah's Resignation. ,Helena, Dec. 4.-The resignation of Capt. W. J. Hlannah of the Big Timber company of militia has been received by the governor. Some time ago when charges were preferred against Captain Hannah by some of the members of the company he agreed to resign if the matter was with drawn. This was done and now he has sent in his resignation. Small Fire in South Butte. The fire department was called out about 3 o'clock this afternoon by a blaze at the corner of Silver and Arizona streets. A one-story building, occupied by a tegro family, caught fire from an overheated pipe. The blaze was extinguished before serious damage had been done. WHERE THE MAIL WENT A Brooklyn family, which has been hav ing considerable trouble over the loss of newspapers, magazines and other mail of that sort, has been saying harsh things concerning the Brooklyn postoffice. Re cently, however, there have been revela tions concerning the family's private serv ice, and there is no more trouble. Different members of the family are away from home, and when anything of special interest is chronicled in the home papers these papers are sent to the absent ones. The maid whose duty it is to carry the papers to the street box has some times an armful. She is a new maid, and had not had much to do with mailing let ters and papers before taking her present position. She was given definite instruc tions, the letters to go in the small box on the post and papers in the large box neas it. She did her duty, no one doubted, because the letters reached their destina tion, but not a paper of the large num ber postec ever did so. It was when th: was discovered that the family began to say things about the postoffice. Recently the mistress of the house, be ing interested in a church entertainment, had occasion to send a number of bills, advertising it, to a co-worker. l'hese she wrapped for mailing and handed over to the maid as usual. But the girl, being rather above the ordinary in intelligence, and noticing what the package contained, asked if she should post it in the letter box. "These are bills," she said, "and they won't go in the ordinary paper box, be cause it says on the outside: 'Post No Bills.' " An understanding light suddenly broke over her mistress' face. "What kind of a box is it and what else does it say on the outside?" "W\hy, it is a big green box," answered the girl wonderingly, "standing right on the corner by the letterbox, and it has on it the letters 'D. P. W,'" "'Department of Public Works!"' gasped the mistress. "That is the street waste paper box that you have been mail ing our papers in, No wonder they didn't reach their destination I The regular box is a silver colored one standing on the in side of the sidewalk by the fence."

DOWIE "MILWAUKEE MILLIONAIRE" WHO IS SAID TO BE WILLING TO ASSUME THE DEBT. OPPOSITION TO BANKRUPTCY First Legal Action Taken in Court Meanwhile Mrs. Dowie Is Said to Be Touring the Continent. BY ASSO('IATE) PsRESs. Chicago, Dec. 4.-The first open notice of opposition to the bankruptcy proceed ings against John Alexander l)owie was given in the United States district court today by an attorney for the Indianapolis Grocery company, who are creditors of Dowie. In the filing of a claim for $J.soo, the attorney for the Indianapolis concern gave notice that at the proper stage of proceedings he would take action in court in opposition to the bankruptcy petition of other creditors. The contest will probably begin within a few days. Representatives of several other large concerns, it is said, will join in the fight to have the receivers ousted on the ground that l)owie is solvent and that ereditors will get less if litigation is prolonged. A middle-aged .unn, known to Dowie's followers as "the Milwaukee millionaire," arrived at Zion City today. A prominent Dowieite, who refused to allow the use of his name, said that the visitor was the "deliverer," whom Dowie mentioned at his rally meeting Wednesday as being willing to pay Dowie's entire indebtedness if Dowie wished. Dowie and his cabinet met the new comer at the depot, and a little later Dowie and Deacon Barnard left for Chi cago to consult Attorney Jacob Newman. Mrs. Dowie in Europe. Paris, Dec. 4.-Mrs. l)owie, wife of John Alexander Dowie of Zion City, left Paris a few days ago for Cannes. She arrived in Paris from London, accom panied by her son. The party left Sun day evening for Cannes, where they are still supposed to be. Souvenirs given away tomorrow at the Smith Grocery Co., 349 South Main. LITERARY NEWS A New Work. In a recent number of 'a leading mnaga zine a prominent English critic was quoted as saying that American writers in their hunt for literary ",material" were overlooking the very choicest subjects subjects pre-eminently distinctive of American life and vital with the spirit of the American people. First and fore most he cited American politics. The prominent English critic is undoubtedly correct, but our authors have at last begun to awake to the value of the rich field hitherto ignored, and some few have al ready turned their backs upon the Klon dike, the Philippines, the West Indies and the Wild West for the more typical and stronger material to be found in our very midst. Several examples might. bhe cited, but the most prominent is "The Coflgress. man's Wife," by John D. Barry, a story of American politics in Washington and New York, which not only opens the doors upon the inner wheels of national politics, but presents in a most powerful manner politics in its bearing upon the individual and society as well as upon the country. "The Congressman's Wife" is one of the pioneers In the field, and thogrb they are not likely to equal it in pouwer iand artistic treatment. there will be a long list of other books following in the Iath it has pointed out. It will tnot be long before the prominent English critic will have to withdraw his criticism.

For the 'trcnu ous reader, lhowevcr, there amr ;iticles by Ida M. Tarbell, Iay Stannard aiker and others. "\\'hen Elizabeth \Went lI toe," tby Ethel HIowman RI(onal, is a tale of a lonely youtng wife who alimost d.eserts her husbalnd and her I)akota home in a burst of nostalgia for theil Christ mias tide of her mother's house, but who is lbr'lght back in time to her finter duty. "The ( elcstial (;armlent" is a tender ltory by VMary TI-'l bot Campbell of a child who g t,. her much longed-for and very ecessary Iparty drew "from heaven, right IIthrugh MInaa's heart." The "Christmas ('hinmets," of Mar garet Cameron, is a delightful comedy, permleated with the fraglrance of holly and the warnmth of yule log and love. Dictates to a Phonograph. G;. I. Burgin, tile well known English iovelist, whose "Shutters of Silence" is winning so high a place for itself on this side of the Atlantic, is said to "write" all his books by dictating them to a phonto graph. Mr. Burgin has adopted this ultra modern methol, not for the sake of speed, but because, being freed from both the labor of writing and the presence of a secondl person, it brings hint into the closest sympathy with his characters. By running over the cylinder lie can actually hear his characters talking allmong them selves, and finds it simtple thereafter to continuc with th'em their natural and sponltaneous dialogue. "The Eternal Triangle." "The Eternal 'ITriangle," the novel which forms the principal feature of the current number of Tales From Town Topics, is an exceptionally strong work of fiction, so admirably conceived and so powerfully executed as to almost preclude the pos si-bility of its being from the pen of a hitherto unknown writer. The name, Jane Tcbitt, which appears as the author, is not familiar, and leads to the suspicion that it is a nom de plumle. Indeed, the style throughout suggests the workmalnshipi of one who has made a name and fame in the weaving of contemporaneous romance. It is a very bold story, telling of the sac rifice a loving woman makes for the rmian she loves-a sacrifice of honor. But it is told with such exquisite art that even the slightest suggestion of coarseness is avoided. This unumber of the always at tractive quarterly is also very rich in short stories, poetry, essays, witticisms, etc. A tale by the late Col. Richard Henry Sav age, called "General Stafford's Morning Ride," is really a biting satire on the Brit ish army officer, while "A Magnolia BIlos somn," by M. lafayette, is as cleverly piquant a contrast between society in the North and South as has ever appeared in print. J. Alexander Patten contributes a read able article on "Early New Yorkers," and there are entertaining tales, verses, etc., by such favorites as Robert Barr, Tru. man. Roberts Andrews, Kate Masterson, Carrie Foote Weekes, Irene C. Byrne, Isaac Anderson, Burges Johnson and others. December Criterlon.

From New York he went to Iondon, where he became editor of Judy, the well known comic weekly. In l.ondon he also pub lished his first novel, "A Woman of Or chids." "A l'uritan Witch," strange to say, was not written while the author was surrounded by a New England environ ment, but during a residence in Antwerp. Mr. )ana, however, is so thoroughly steeped in New England lore and at mosl)here that he has made a book thor oughly racy of the soil, and which, as a leading reviewer expresses it, "tells itself with the breath of living emotions." Edgar Fawoett. Edgar Fawcett, whose novel, "The Vulgariants," his first book in some years, is attracting much attention, has lived abroad for a considerable time, chiefly in London, where he is well known to all the literary circle. This preference for En glish life is got remarkable, in view of the fact that his father was an Englishman. But in his books Mr. Fawcett is thor "ughly Americtl in the choice of scenes, characters and themes. It was a story of Aaron Blurr with which he won $2,o0o in the New York llcrald's prize competition in 1895, and "T'he Vulgarians" is a careful study of men, women and manners in the United States.
