Wright.) in a valley in the mountains, .n the land of the IvMontana's, )n the rocky banks of Hell Gate, Nestling at the foot of Jumbo, lies the city of Missoula, )ften called the Garden city; Voted for its many gardens, V'oted for its mountain scenery, Peaks of beauty, height and grandeur, .'ar surpassing many mountains Phat you see among the Rockies. Po the east is old Mt. Jumbo, voted for its c(lose resemblance 7o the beast with the proboscis. t 6ies north of Hell Gate canyon, )own which flows the Hell Gate river, Sometimes known as Muddy Water, Phus made. muddy by the tailings ,rom the many mines and smelters, 'rom the many concentrators Pound 'way up at its headquarters; UJp at Butte and Anaconda, 'oted cities for their mining. Then the Rattlesnake comes purling From the north in rarest beauty, luenching all the thirsty city Nith its water sweet and wholesome. tt its head is old Mt. Murphy, :ewering high.above the others Like Goliath 'mong his fellows. To the north there lies some waters Lakes of clear transcendent beauty, Waters rarely seen by mankind, For it takes a lot of climbing To see the lakes in all their beauty. To the west of old Mt. Murphy Is a stream of clearest water That flows sw.)ftly from a crevice, Then goes whirling on its journey Over precipice and boulder Forming waterfalls of beauty In its haste to reach the canyon. West of Murphy, not far distant, Is another stream of water Rushing down to Hell Gate valley, Giving life and living beauty To the narrow winding canyon. This is Grant creek, and it wanders Th'rough tile rich and prosperous . valley, Mixing its translparent fluid With the slime and muddy water Of the noted Hell Gate river. Farther west you see a mountain Rising far above tile others Like a guardian of the forests. This is called the Squaw-tit moun tain Oddly named from its appearanoe. As we move our eyes more southward, Soon they rest on old Mt. Lolo, Highest of the peaks we've noticed Peer of all the-mountains 'round us. There he stands among the 'mountains Par above all its surroundings, Looking like a mighty monarch ;eated high above his subjects. )n his crest he wears a snow crown in the hottest of the summer. Ihus defying all the efforts )f Old Sol to thus uncrown him. Fast of Lolo lies a valley Which for richness rivals fully "hat old rich and fertile valley Long the Nile in lower Egypt. Here are grown in rich abundance WVheat and oats and rye and barley, Luscious fruits of all descriptions Chat are grown in northern climates.

KING DANDELION. (By Lida N. Diederich.) tn the spring of the year, whenl wsarm rain fall, King Dandelion sounds his call, And in helmets of goldl and tralppings of green The march of his many Imen is seen; They pour over mountain and valley and plain. They dance in the sunshine and smile in the rain. In the rocky canyon's cool retreat They mass themselves at the dark pine's feet; y dusty streets, by hubhlling stream. Brightly and boldlly their Ihelmets gleam. Over lawn and garden, 'neath orchard trees, Tlhey march where they will and camp where they please. "Ho, ho!" cries the king to his march ing men, 'These human upstarts are at it again; They are fighting my legions on every hand, It is nip and tuck who'll get this land; We hear them push with fiendish zeal Over our heads their blades of steel; We hear them cry with an evil shout,. 'At last we've routed tile rascals out.' But down in the cool earth, dtark and deep, The headless legions blindly creep, Decapitated, dismembered, still They rise to their task with a royal will. Their dead lie thick on the grassy floor, But their places are taken by millions more; Victors ever, the land they claim, By the right of eminent domain. Proudly they march on, uncontrolled, Soldiers of fortune in green and gold King Dandelion, we how to you, We hate you, and fight you, and love yoU, too. WHEN RED APPLE TREES BLOOM. (Bfy Lida N.

AIlr. taker's Dosition is that the is not coii cerned with the purifictation of poli ties or with any other tight except that for the extermination of thie st loin st far as legal enactments can exterminate it. The league atdnmilt hat there are other worthy causes, uit sot far as its own activities are ioncernedI every other consideration is sacrificed to that of securing anti iquor legislation. Another salient point In the camn ialgn methoids of the anti-saloon teague is the adoption of up-to-date and even sensational methods of arousing interest. Circulars, pamphlet:: aind personal letters are called into play; hitllhoards and fences are util zed for signs in glaring type; parades of women and children are organized. The old-time "horrible example" is re laced by toddling youngsters bearing signs reading, "Vote to keep my papa from drink," "Don't let the saloons 'uin out' homes," and similar emblems. In some cases, however, these methods save been carried too fatr by over-zeal Ous campaigners, Its when the Inmates of a Virginia orphan asylum were. muarshaled in a procession as at living exhibit of thle results of drink, a re lection on thie character of the local ommunity which its citizens prompt ly resented. Stereopticon- lectures anld moving picture views are other up410 date eampatgnt instruments adopted )by the- league. The rAnti-laloon league for tie most part has refrained from joining forced with other bodies, holding that its one object of securing prohibilbitory Lsegles tfin might be endangered .by such l1 tlhncs. Between it and the prtshibl timr party there exists a perceptible i olnc . 'The prohibitlonists accuse thei leaguers of sacrificing principle to policy, while the latter retort.thgt the third party- leders filliow methods that are linpractical att fall of ac omllldishing iany result: of conse quenco. In New York" th; league strongly opp.sed the bill advocated by one of its formter allies, the com Iittee of fourteen. in the fight 'waged by tile latter against the Rtalnes law hotels, and the chairman of the corm Ilittte, hirmsell a clergyman, criticised the league fir supporting "probably' the most dangerously corrutlt ta.l Int the entire assembly (of. New York,, throuigh whomnl all the iniquitous srneak-thief legislation of the railway corporrations was introduced." Like wise an attempt to allign the forces Ilmosed to cuhild labor with the league fell through when it was shown that the statistics on this subject widely distributed by the league, which charged tlhat 1,600,000 children were forced into mills and factories by the laws permitting the sale of lIlquor were incorrect, and that more than 40 per cent of the children so eniployed were in prohibition states. As a result of the difficulties at tending attempted coalitions the league now follows pretty onseist ently a go-It-alone policy, striving Irn very IHoIial content to rally all possi ble elements of voting strength to its standard but avoiding all .permanendt alliances. Its position in the anti.sa loon war is somewhat like that of the professional evangelist who condocts religious revivals for the churches, When the fight is won in one section its forces move on to another battle field, leaving the problem of malntain ing and enforcing the laws it has se cured to the people of the'commlnirty concerned. While this sharp dividing line be tween the Anti-Saloon league and other organizations devoted to the temperance cause is everywhere in evidence it has never, thus far at least, seriously crippled the. voterget ting power of the league; and thl~s, of course, Is the sole object for which'It was established. The real test of the league and of the permanence of its work will come doubtless when the actual results of the laws which it has succeeded in placing on the statute books have become evident. According to official figures the -an%· nual . per .capita consumption of b*ert In, Great Britain has decreased froar 32.20 to 26.47 gallons in the liast. cade, while that of spirits has' dea. creased front 1.18 gallons to ,87 of-6 gallon.
