And royal work it the has been. The.

Among those is the beautiful silver fountain, made of Montana metal and paid for by subscriptions from the ladies and the proceeds of a fine ball given under their direction. Although affairs wore care fully managed obstacles have arisen, as they always do arise in works of public undertaking. The result is that the ladies flind themselves in debt in the sum of nearly $400, which must be raised very soon in order that the Mon tana exhibit in all its splendor may take its place at Chicago.

The refusal of the United States sen ate to take a vote on the resolution to investigate Senator Roach's case means, of course, that the matter has been dropped for all time to come. The sen ate wisely decided that the people of North Dakota knew their own business when they elected Roach and that it was not within the province of congress to deprive a state of its legally elected representative when there was neither odium attached to his name, or, what is more important in this instance, fraud to his election. The attempted investigation turned out a bad fizzle, but the discus sion brought forth an interesting ques tion as to just how far the United States senate can go in exhuming the records of a senator's life. The Portland Ore gonian, a strong republican paper but a manly fighter and ever ready to assert its independence, gives this honest gen r eralization: ouperannuated virtue, in the senate, has been troubling itself about the moral ohar acter of Senator Roach, of North Dakota. Nothing could be more absurd. Long ago I it was settled that there was no need of any R inquiry into the moral character of a mem boer of the senate or house of representa , tives. Moral character is not a bar, indeed, To u as yet, but it is not at all necessary, The st senate is going to stand by Mr. Roach, be cause a majority of the senators feel that they could as ill afford an examination of o their past lives as he. It suits them, there fe ore, to "hurl back with scorn and indigna o tion viperous (sie) slanders uttered against members of this honorable body." Of course, it is a settled principle that moral character is not essential in a member of h congress. and what is the use of contention a about it. There are mighty few paragons of virtue in the United States senate. SThat body includes men whose lives bear darker stains of disgrace than were charged to the record of Senator Roach. There are senators who purchased eleo h tions, others who robbed the govern s ment, one western senator who left the east because he had committed a crime and there are none so far from reproach g as to entitle them to assume a "better than-thou" pose. The right to dig up Roach's record as a private citizen con cedes the right to dig up the records of others and from the proceedings we take it that this possibility was viewed with much alarm. & It was small business from the start i- and without excuse. Let us beglad that it stopped where it did and thus preo SI vented a precedent entirely out of keep id ing with senatorial work. TRIASI IN THE NEW COUNTIES. An Interesting Question !ettled by the Attorney General. Attorney General Hlaskell has been en gaged several days preparing an opinion on the question of prosecutlous for crimiunalI offenses in the now counties. The questiont asked or raised, was whether a man acensed of a crime committed in that part of an old county that was out off by the last lou islatue and made into a new county. should be prosenteld in the old or the new county, if the offense took place before the segregation was made. The attorney gen eral is of the opinion that the offender can be tried in the new county end by it. of ficers and citizens. Otherwise all prosecn tions for offenses tiact took plaoe in what are now Valley, Teton.

It ple ents to youth and age many advantages in common with ether wholesome spor a and many other attract.ons at once lon'quo and congenial to the most cultured tastes. It is not uncommon to find boys of 10 or 12 years displaying considerable skill in wielding the r icset, at d age, too, is invited to this recreation, though the hops of attaining skill is nut so great as with those whose muscles are clastic with youthful vigor. Disinclination, rather than decrepitude cir tines this pastime mainly to youth. The covered court. rhampion of England, Mr. E. G. Meere, did not begin his brilliint Tennis c:ireer until he was 35 years old, and as he yearly improves his game, it see:ms but natural to coup e the future interests of laan tennis with his longevity. In England not only do ladies play more generally than here, I,ul it is quite oimmon there to find middle aced and oven old men disporting at the net. An American player on a vi-it abroad come years ago was invit d for a day of friendly tenn:s to the country plt e of two Oxford men. Le Has not surprised at being heat a by each of I's Oxford friends. but he confessed afterwards that, he was a bit p't cut when the portly, gray-haired pater famil as won Stwo straight sets front him. T'Ihe tdaptab liiy of tennis to the gentler sex was one of the chief ob jects of the early promoters of the game. In fw-lt no other athletic game so gratefully admits of the participation of lady players. Ti e benefits are mutual. litvrsi on and exorcise nmoderate or violent at will) are afforded to ladies. and at the san.e timeo th, game is clothod with the refining intlu o Pnco of their scci.ty.

There is, howtvwr, an el sticity n lawn tennis that admits of a fast. violent game, or of an e..sier f rm of diversion in accordance with the inclination or physi ino of its players. O)n the ono hand, successive hard matches may call in play the mus-ular ability and endurance of the trneol atthlete, whale on the other hand a convalescent may gain diversion of a nohal nat tre upo i tinnis court, and fortify himself physically against s further attacks of grip. What, is t:ero so faso'nating about tennis? hk \\orn li s the clh: rit that gains for it so many devot es? It is by no m tans strange that such llue io:ns should come fromn a person wholly un a,: rinil d with the guin. lie lias, perhaps, casually observed the not e too grai f.l movements of indifferent playwrs tihat even enthusiastic ad a- lirirs fail o recognize.
