EZLUXA--tsIth san Mata. The telling of the every-day facts ot a business like this seems sometimes like exaggeration.

When we tell you that our stock of Dolls and Toys and Holiday Goods will be the largest and the best assorted ever shown in the state-we speak truth, for since Jan.

J4-inch, for windows, per ft. ce s-mnch, for doors, per foot. .s tc The household mouse trap catches a mouse, locks him in and sets Itself for the next one. It's usually sold for 25c-but now we're selling it for ioc. The Gem clothes dryer fastens to the kitchen wall, takes up practically no space, is always ready for use, and holds as many articles as the old style, awkward clothes-rack. Invalua ble for towels, etc. Worth 5oc, and has been selling for that but we don't want to move them, so they go at 3oc. Here's the lamp bargain of the season. Banquet lamp, onyx column, gold finished metal work, rival center draft burner with patent lift lighting attachment, silk fringed imbrella shade of any color. Was $4.So, now $2.5o.

THE HOST OF THE PEOPLE CoL Thomu Cruse Throws His House Open to the Entire Populatlon. Labor sod OspItWI Toeuoh lbow it the Gayly ightoed I1 Was a Greet ee*lpties Sad Viulters sad Cltiseus hAtteded It by Ieesre sad Ieadr.dsw Col. Thomas Couse constituted him selt host for the whole city of Helena, and all the people from other places who happened to be still here yesterday afternoon and Ilst night. It was a lgre geous affair, and reflected grIat credit on the liberality of the host. As to all who were there, it would take quite a number of pages of the city directory to begin to ennumerate, not to mention the visitors from all parts of the state, who had come to witness the great cele bration. It was a wide open receptlin, and everybody who could get there went there. The welcome was as hearty to one as to the other, and the hand shaking that the genial host received was as hearty as his welcome. The ele gant home at the corner of lawrence street and Benton avenue was beautl fully and artistically decorated. Large palms in the vestibule lent a delight ful coloring to the spacious entrance, the choicest of flowers filled the great parlors, with esmilax entwining the handsome chandeliers, while chrysan themums and other species of flower oovere4 everything and made the scene fairyllRe. Yellow and green were the prominent colors in the dining room. From the corners to the chandeliers ex tended festoons of smilax. The big side board glistened with silverware and cut glans set off with pots of chrysanthe mums. The polished dining table was neatly arrane.ei It was at night that the reception reached its splehdor. Then the spa clous grounds were lit up by countless Chinese lanterns, and from every win dow in the big house beamed forth a welcome. It was then, too, that the number of visitors grew to the dimen stone of an army; but it was one bear Ing words of greeting for the well known banker. At times the rooms were crowded. Mr. Cruse stood at the entrance reeeiving his guests, and his niece. Miss Cruse, with a number of other ladies, nssisted him. Outside the band oh the broad lawn played, and in the baek parlor the orchestra added its music to the occasion. There was no soelal supremacy at Col. Cruse's repeption. Bankers, mer chants, clerks, day laborers, all touched elbows within the hospitable mansion. The miner from up the gulch stopped there on his way home, stood his tools againast the fence sad went in and got as hearty a greeting from Col. Cruse and the ladies as the man who could sign his check for thousands. A delicious lunch of salads and other delicacies was spread, and hundreds of the visitors partook of It, and washed it down with sparkling wine and de liclous punch. It was a great reception and all the greater because there was no formality beyond the usual handshakes and greetings. The Invitation was to all and all were there. Art'S ' as Usb esI4e OWease'. B.

I** hi Sey t t gn d asses, the Shoe by the sietb ayle 1he, Th. people of .eleM and those 91s Itors who had not yet left the clty had the opportunity to hear two fne oun aerta at the intersection of Main street mad Broadway about soon yesterday. The Ilrt was that given by the famous Boeton and Montana band, of Butte, R. L. Treloar, leader. The "Hesu Ideal" march by.jiousa, "secotch Mel odlei" by Imbury, the medley "lied Hot" by Beyer. Iousea' "Washington Post" march, and "Old Glory" by Mas ten, were the selections, the lattter two by request. It was a great concert and thoroughly enjoyed by the large crowd, who testified their Ippreolation by loud cheer. and applause. The Itonton and Montana hand have visited IHlenla no often that it seems to belong as much to the capital as to the llver city. No matter when or how ofted they come the members are always welcome. The music rendered by this organlsatinn is as fine as that given by any of the great bands of the east. Leader Tre lear never misses an opprtunlty to, sr cure a good performer, and keeps his men In constant practiee. The result is that the simple announcement that the Boston and Montana is to play always has the effect of bringing out a large, audience. There were twenty-one per formers in the band here. They left for Butte yesterday afternoon. The Black ICagle band, of Great Falls., under Leader Ithyner, also gave a concert at the foot of Broadway, and the applause the received showed Jnow fully the people appreciated it. The selections given were: "Musical L4un shine," "Amanon," "Irish Melodies." and "America." The manner of their rendition showed evidence of careful training and constant practice. The Black Eagle is a fine organisation a-sd the members deserve the great recep tion given them by the Helena people. They left for the Falls In the after noon.
