Kansas Usdertakere Arrested for Gettlag Up a Monopoly. TOPaxA. Kan., Ot. 809.- Warrants have been issued by the 'United States commie sioner here for fifty-eight of the principal undertakers of the state. and the arrests are being made as rapidly as possible. It is a renewal of the fightmade by J. M. Knight against the Kansas Undertakers' associa tion. This time Knight has the under takers of Leavenworth and Atchison at his back. These two olties have never snuffered from the trust, and their undertakers are doing what they can to break up the Kan sas Undertakers' association. They are charged with conspiring together to control prices and regulate trade in violation of the Inited States anti-trust law. The maxi mum penalty is $5,000 fine or two years in the penitentiary for each offense, or both. In addition to the Topeka men for whom warrants are issued, warrants are out for all the undertakers of Wichita, Kansas City, Kas., Newton, Arkansas City, Law rence, Winfield. Poala, Saline. Garnett, El dorado, Emporia, Junction City, I'arsons, Lincoln, Fort Scott, Coffeyville, Sedan, McPherson. Anthony, Columbus, Troy, Seneca, Larned, Hutchinson, Abilene, Iola, Kinsley, Solomon City, Concordia. Olathe and Great Bend. The secretary of the as sociation, B3. W. Carter, is not to be ar rested, but has been eubpcenaed as a wit ness, and Leon DeBoet has gone to Marion and secured the books and papers in his possession. These papers, it is said, are sufficient to convict every member of the organization, as they prove both the mem bership and the workings of the organiza tion. The undertakers are all in such good circumstances financially that they have no difficulty in giving bond. A lively fight will be made. The undertakers expect to carry their case to the United States su. preme court if necessary. TRIUMPHS OF THE BLIND. How They Overcome the Disadvantages of eling Usable to See. The achievements of the blind are an un failing source of wonder to those who can see, and the latest prodigy among those un fortunates is Oscar Moore, a six-year-old colored boy of Waco, Texas, says the Chi cago Times. His memory is not simply phenomenal. it is what many people would call marvelous. He has never been known to forget a name after hearing it once or to fail of recognizing a voice. It is a well known fact that loss of sight sharpens the other senses, especially hearing, but it has not been supposed to greatly strengthen the memory. Oscar's memory was first noticed by his parents when he was but thirteen months old, and he soon became a wonderin Texas. He was recently taken to Boston. When introduced to a large company he remem bered the name of everyone at their next meeting and identified each by his voice. He is a perfect little encyclopedia of his torical and literary information; can count in all the languages he has ever heard, amounting to a dozen; can recite very long poems after hearing them read once, and detail every fact of any importance in any history he has once heard read. He is withal a fairly good singer and has some talent for the piano. Many tests of his memory have been made in Boston with astonishing results. Another blind person of note is William M. Davenport of Leyden, Franklyn county, Ma-s.. who lost his sight in boyhood. Nevertheless, he soon mastered the details of ia small farm on whioh his parents lived, and starting in early manhood with no for tune but his talents he has acquired over $~0,000. He is one of the best judges of wool in the etat-. and by feeling and smell can detect every variation in fiber, grease, KALISPELL. Kalispell is a young and growing city of over 2,000 inhabitants in which the tfist building was erected in May, 1891. It is the geograpical center of the Flat head valley, and adivisional point on the main line of the Pacific extension of the Gr:e t Northern railroad. Several miles of side track, a round hous e, coal yards, and a freight depot have a'ready been bui t. and a handsome two story brick and dton' passenger depot, which when completed wi:l be the finest on the line of thi; road west of St. Paul, is now under construct ol.

'I h ccn-truction of a new railroad has been cc.mmenced from the mining cen terso' the state to tie inmensecoal field . in th, northern part of the Flat bead val oy, hi.ch pa :icg through Kald sepill, will give h.er cheap and direct coimmunic(ation with Butte, Helena and all Ioints south, and op*n a ready mar ket for prdructs of the valley, all of which, from her geographical location, will necessarily center at Kalispell; while the natural grades from the m nes and rol fields of the surrounding coun try, the cheap and unlimited supply of fuel, together with the great water pwcer at her very doors, will make Kal iprcll the smelting center of this portion f tihe tate. It it already thesupply p inot for thr army of miners and pros :e-tcors operating in the North and no.ith forks and the Kootenai min inz regions, and with her three ctronr national banks, she can have no rival as the financial center of the whole flathead region. Accord ng lo published statistice, no city of her size in the United States can boast of so, tin,, a system of wat -r works and -b-ctr ' liglht. Tihe avsem com prs- sa oven miih s of pipe, hydranits at every street intersection, and pumps with a capacity equal to those of the -Butte system c 'theo total cost of the plant is upwards of $125,0u10. A brick brewery has just been com ileted with a capacity of 1.200 barrels per month, having the latest improved machinery. and operated by men of long standing and successful experiene in t .air line. Numerous substantial brick busIneess blocks have been constructed within the last season, and many fine residnt es are now going up through out the town. Liberal inducements will be offered to ", a -ufactories. F'o'lowing is a list of industries which would find Kalispell a most promising poinlt at which to locate: Ssih :ncd door factory, furniture fac tory., pottery works, tub. Lucket and box f.oCLorv. Muver mill. starch factory. dirt, and other eeoullaritims. This. however is not so surprising as hi quick judgmeont on live stook. He does it by "laying on of hands," and does it so well that he is one of the regular judges at all stook gather togs. A singular feature of his oae is that his own animals seem, in a dumb brute way, torealise his misfortune. He has bought and handled as many as 500 cattle in a year, feeds and waters them on his farm himself, goes in and out among them equally by day or night, and has never once been kieked or bitten. Recently he led a violoun bull. which others were afraid of. six miles. He is a very prominent man in county affairs, is in Greenflsld every eat urday, and can walk or ride ftom and to his home with rase and certainty. Hts wife usually draws and signs papers for him sad his four children read a great deal to him, as he takes fifteen papers and maga sines. Despite the compensations of nature and the labors of philanthropy it isa hard world for the blind, and, though ingenious men have sought out many inventions to aid them, much remains to be done. The de velopment of Laura Bridgman by Dr. Samuel G. Howe was creatiug the greatest achievement in physico.psychology this world has known. She was deaf, dumb and blind, with an imperfect taste, yet Dr. Howe diecove:ed a way to reach her mind, ane found it a good one. The account of how he taught her to tell what she thought and felt is the very romance of humanita rian science. One of the Unterrified. Taoy, N.

The Flathead valley, ten years ago no almost unknown region, the home of the savage and wild beast, to-day is the most productive section of the north west, yielding per acre double the out. put of Kansas, Iowa <r the Dakotas, and is the only section west of the Miss issippi river which can rival the oale ba e I Bed River Valley of the North in the superior quality of its cereals. It is the oily agricultural section in the state o& Montana, where crops can be r ised without irrigation. Vegetables of all kinds rre grown it, abundance, while apples, plums, peaches, cherries, pears, and the small fruits such as strawler ries.blackberries, goosebe-ries, raspbeir ries are be:ng raised suI(ceRsfully. With a ready market for all products of t! o soil in the rich mineral di tricts to the east, west a d south, the farmers of thi Flathead valley will s )on be classed among the wealthiest and most influen tail of this new count r . Wheat averages thirty-five bushels per acre, oats sixty bushels, barley forty bushel, rye thirty bushels, potatoes 400 buhJs.e, cabbt ge ten tons per acre, rutabagas thir y tons per acre. The Flathead riv,,r, with its tribu taries--the North, South and Middle forks- the Stillwater and Whitftish rivers, with th,ir numerous branchei, making a total of over 0t miles of lon ging streams, aill of which converge at Kalispell, flow through vast forests of pine, tamarack, fir, larch aiul celir. Under th , recent law onacted Iby con gress those ho titdless tracts of timber land can he purchased at $2.5O0 per acre. According to the state aud.tor's report, of the 103,489,283 feet of lumber cawed in the st ite during the year 1891, 100, 0. 000) was yawed in M ssoula county, thus demonstrating this portion of the state's sul remacy in the lumber in dustry. In the nor:hern portion of the valley are hidden va-st measilres of a superior quality of clil towarlds which the rutil roacs are alret.dy building, and the de vel meant of this resource alone w.ll recm er this section the l'itt-buag of the northwest. AdjoiiLng those imma insS bodies of coal lie large tracts of oil la:d, which g vo piotlisa of equaling the rwh pet oleuln fillds of Pennsylvania. Natural ga; has also been discovered in this region.
