Brigadier General John. Gibbon and HIs Family Guests at The Broadwater. $till the Soldier Despite Having Passed the Age for Retirement. Forty.lour Years of Faithful Military S.r. vies Readered the Government ot the United States. Brlg.-Gen. John Gibbon, of the United States army, accompanied by his wife, his daughter, and his two grandchildren, is a guest at the Broadwater hotel. The general and his family came from the west, and it is their Intention to remain at the Broad water for a few weeks' rest before return ing east. Gen. Gibbon has reached the age for retirement, and the Montana leg islature passed a memorial to congress ank ing that he be placed on the retired list for faithful service, which was done. Since leaving Montana, where Gen. Gibbon seuw twelve sativre years of military duty, Ihe has been back on visits from time to time, but this is his first trip to Helena in two years. In appeasrance Gen. Gibbon is a typical soldier, ruddy in spite of his 04 years, with a clean cat white beard and moustache, and only a sprinkling of gray in his hair; with a sharp, precise way of talking that denotes a long military service, and its consequent habit of issuing orders and having them obeyed without ar gument. He is slightly above the average height, erect and compactly built, and walks at all times as if on dress parade. Gen. John Gibbon has seen 44 years' service in the army, having graduated at the United States military academy in 1847, when 20 years of age. Upon his grad nation he was assigned to the artillery e.nd served at the City of Mexico and Toluca till the close of the Mexican war. Fiom this time to the outbreak of the civil war he was largely on frontier and garrison duty. For the first year of the war he was chief of artillery of Gen. McDowell's divi siaon, and in 1862 was brigadier-general of voluuteers. He commanded a brigade though the northern Virginia, Maryland, Rappahannock and Pennsylvania cam paigns in 1862-tOl, being brevetted major for servio-s at the bloody field of Antietam. A few months later he was brevotted lieutenant-colonel for his work at Frederickburg, where he commanded a division and was wounded and disabled for three months. He was severely wounded at Gattyaburg while commanding the Second arrmy corps and was made colonel for his .allantry there. His wounds at this treat battle laid him up for four months and it was not until November, 1863, that he was alce to nssumoe command of the draft depot at Plhiladelp.he, where he remained until the spring of 18614. He was then assigned to a division of the Second corps, as brevet major-aeneral, and was at the battles of the Wilderness, Spottaylvania and Cold Harbor. After January 1, 1865, he com manded the Twenty-fourth aemy corps and was before Petersburg, taking part in the crsaults of the last two days and carrying two redoubts. He was breay ctted brigadier-general and major-general in March. 18615, and wees one of the cornmissioners to carry into effoect the stipulations for Lee's surrender. After the war he commanded various costs. and had charge of the Yellowstone expedition against Sitting Bull, in 1876. He command td the Monttana column, which saved tihe wreck of the Seventh cnv.ry r it the Custer ,attlofield. On August 9, 1877, he com imended tLo troons in the notion with the 7:ez Peros Indians at Big Hole pass, where 1]. was severely wounded. While in com nemnd of the Montana depa tment, with ]leadquaerters at Foit Shaw, Gen. Gibbon e.tabtished the post of Fort Missoula. He vwas promnoted to beigadier-general in July, 8816.

A large audiena compaged mostly of woioPS Ist night at the telena Businessol igte ball, listened to a very enteitaining olee tlure by Mrs. Iannie Hi. Carter, on Delstrte philosophy and physical culture. The phil osophy covers such a wide range that Mrs. Carter did not have time to do more than touch upon the basic prlnoiples of it. At the conclusion of her remarks she gave an illustration of the advance rmovements taught under the Delsarte system. They consisted of swaying, graceful movements of the arms, torso and head. In her lee tare she told of an Instance where the sya tem demonstrated its power upon a pupil who was continually saying to her instruc tor, "I can't." When the young woman cnme for her next lesson she was told it would be a short one, and that she need not return for two weeks. Her instruc tions were to practice reciting the lines, "I'm monarch of all I survey" for several minutes each day before a mirror. She did it faithfully but pfobably did not know at the time what it was in tended for, and the outcome undoubtedly gave her a clearer conception of the Delsarte system. Mrs. Carter says that when the ou;pil outo ad her instrnuctor's Fpartrments at the expiration of the two weeks the young woma-n had the bearing of one who was monarch of all she surveyed, but she was not conscious of it and had been taught that she "could." As summaed up, the philosophy teaches how to train the nerves, how to rest, and how to move and act with economy of force. Delsarte teaches vital economy. Conserva tion or energy is the fundamental prinoiple of the Delanrte development. By thie froe ing or relaxing exeorcies all nerve tension is removed froml the muscles when they are not in use. Nerve foroe thus drawn from the eatremities and exterlof muscles is con serv*d and reserved in the great nerve centree, giving strength at the centre, free dam at the surface. This nerve training benflits especially the army of nerve-bound over-worked people, those who waste vital force by the tension kept upon the muscles even when the body is in the attitude of repose. We should unstring the bow when it isr not in nse. The Delsarte development intro:luces a person to Limself. As the avenues of expression are freed from rest oition and the body becomes a respon sive instrument, latent talents and possibil ities are often awakened. .MoI t people are capable of more than they think thee are. La.ck of physical self-knowledge handicaps many people; they think their bodies are angular, clnmey, out of proportion, even deformed, when in truth the body is sym metrical,but is unnraturallv.inharmonioasly used. Physical habits have a reflex acnotion upon the inner nature. Train a boy's mnus ales in agiresaive fighting lines only, and similar desires are developed. Allow a girl to habitually express carelessness, diffi dence or self-abasement by her physical bearing, and corresponding moral weeds. are planted in her nature. Likewise higher physical training becomes higher character building. The dignified attitude dignifies the feeling. Herbert Spencer says: "We have had something too much of the gospel of work; it is time to preach the gospel of relaxation." Mrs. Carter also gave several recitations which were heartily applauded. Miss M. C. McMlillan, who assisted Mrs. Carter at her recel.tion at the Hotel Broadwater a short time ago, rendered some selections on a piano. Have you seen those 10 cent ties at the Bee Hive?
