There is a knack in using The 'Missoulian class ad, just as there is in using anything else to advantage. Advertising at the right time is what counts most effeotively.

CRIM JOKE PLAYED IN LOS ANGELES BY BEACHEY NERVY TRICK AVIATOR MAKES MACHINE DROP SEVERAL HUNDRED FEET. Los Angeles, Jan. 23 -Lincoln Tirachy, whose daring~ fats of flying have lien the fenature of the Inter. national aviation nimeet here, played a rather ghastly joke today on a crowd that was still on edge as a result nof the tragic fate of young Ruth t.?lJd Pagb yeitlfday afternnih. After se.V eravy thrilling "death dips," attempted emulation of which caused the sud den end of Page's career, Ileachey rose to an altitude of about 400 feet, from which he made a sheer drop al most perpendicularly and disappeared in the gully where Arch Hoxsey fell to his death a year ago. From the grandstand and grounds it appeared that Beachey had fallen and when he did not reappear at the other end of the hill more than a minute later, automobilhes loaded with doctors, mechanlilans ianl relporters dashed tit the foot of the |ill. It was fully three minultes Illter when Beachey reap lrared at the north end of the colrRs, flew past the grandstand and laugh Ingly wavedi to the 'rnwd which had experielnced all the thrills of witness ing an aerial tragedy. Althonigh the day was devoid of ac cidents, If. Kearlney of Ft. Louis had two narrw nesrupeis in the five-m'lo handicap --first when his engine stopped whilt "banking" and a moment later when the "wash" from the pro peller of a stationary monopllane al most capsized his machine. On both occas!ons IKearney righted his biplane but was compelled to leave the course. The Program. Races, altitude flights and trick flying made up the day's program. TPhe figure-oight contest between Phil O. Parmahe. and Lipcoln Beachey furnished several intense moments. Parmlnlleo won in the record time of one minute, five and two-fifthp sec onds for the three "eights." Reach ey's time was onle minute, tlneand four fifths seconds. l'.ir' also cap tured the altitudlle hionIr for the day, reaching a hilght of 7,,00 feet. Glenn H. Martin's barogralph registered near ly 6,000 feet. W. H. (Cooike of San Francisco re mained in the air tiwo hours and 83 minutes and celnlbed 1,800 feet. Pas. enger-currylng honors went to Parnum Fish, the boy aviator, who was in the air most of the afternoon taith a pas enger, making two cross-country flights. The five-nmile handicap race, which was flown in sections owing to the numerous contestants, was twon by Hillery Beachey of St. Louis in 6:1 %, with Glenn Martin of Los Angeles second and William Hoff.ot An Frgn clsco third. LiIncoln Seachey, wtho made the fastest time, 6:88, and Partnalee, were dlpquallfied for ex ceeding their handicap limit, The five-mile free-for-i.l, with four optries, was won by Lnlaoln B)eachey, with otff seedand and Ma'tiB third.

PUBLICANS' LAST CAMPAIGNS COST HEAPLS YESMAONWAtED Teaan Charges That Corruption Gained the Last Elecotions for the "Grand Old Party" and That Enormous Sums Were Contributed-Roosevelt Stood for It, Too, 'Tie Said. Washington, Jan. 23.-Demnnding an Invest'Ration into campaign expendi turets in 1904 and 1908, Senator Cul herscn or Texas In the senate made sweeping charges of corruption today against the republican clulllllnatr fI those and other years. Indirectly, he c'harged that foreign ambassadorships Iwere hestOwed as a reward for campaign contrihlltlns and inferentially that former Pre'dent Ronoevelt had con doned the use of money In politics. Mr. (ulherson's address was made In anticipation of an unfavorable re port by the committee on contingent expensas on his resolution providing for an investilation. He said that limitation of the poposed Inquiry to h. rin with 1904 should not be con Strtli no meaning that there had not her. improper practices before* that period. Some Contributors. Referring especially to the campaignl or 190I, Mr. Culberson said that the rntrlhitlons to the demooratic fund had been iatie by 74,000 persons, with I5,l00 na the rlargest, while those of the republican fund were made by 12. 330 persons, with Qharles P. Taft. brother of the republican presidential i'andihate. at their head with a dona tion of $t10,000. 'Amonr the contributors mentioned were Ambassadors Reid and Keransa and Minister Lars Anderson. Mr. (ulberson referred to the fact that (ceorge l. b Cortelyou in the 1904 campaign had held the position of cha'rman of the republican national committee, wt.lle he was secretary of commerce and labor, and intlmnfed that Mr. Cortelyou had taken advan tage of the secrets of corporations whose affairs mllght be Investigated under the federal law, to procure mloney for the amnpanlll. Eleven Million. "It has been estimated," he said, "that the enormous and unconscion able suen of $11,000,000 was raised and probably expended that year by the committee of which tie was chairman. The very alse and audacity of this fund, if approximately correct, smacks of extortion, profligacy and corruption.
