was not a dllsenting voice to the

and there were prolonged cheers at
the mention of each of these names.
The men of the convention were
earnest and sincere. The platform
which theI' put forth seems to me to
answer the demands or ,'s. time and
the conditions. I am glad that I went
to Iillings. The two hundred men
theel were representative of the sev

there for the very lpurpose which they
aconmplished and they 'were all well
satisfled when the twork was done and
they contemplated the results. I have
notiiced in some of the reports of the
meeting that the statement ls made
1that there was sonme dissnsilon. There
could Ibe nothing farther from the

molt harmnliout meetings which I
ever attended. There was a unity of

'BITTER ROOT MINE
CAPTAIN HOSKING I PLEASED
WITH SHOWING IN THE MA

Captain W. C. Hosking, one of the
well-known mining operators of Butte,
was in the city yesterday. Captain
Hosking has extensive Interests in the
Corbin district and has properties in
various parts of the state. Just now
he is busy with the development of
an old -property at Rochester, which
has been operated on a very small
scale for 24 years. It is to be worked
systematically and upon a scale twhich
promises good returns. Captain Hos
king was in Missoula on business con
nected with the development of the
Mabel Rae property on Eight Mile,
opposite Florence. in the Bitter Root.
"We are working four men there
now." said Captain Hosking to a Mis
soullan man yesterday, "and are pre
paring for extensive development. We
shall organize the Mabel Rae Gold
Mining company and get the work go

deal of work done already. We have
crosscut for 40 feet and have not found

down 200 feet and is in ore all the

mine from Professor Rowe, who has
examined It thoroughly. He found
values running from $5.70 to $61 and
an average value between $20 and $30.
His report was so good that I doubted
it and I experted the mine myself.
My first examination confirmed the
Rowe report. I have since made an

HOME AND MOMHER
IN SER CE
TEN PERSONS APPILIATE WITH
THE CHURCH AT CLOSE
In response to the gosp'l Invitation
given at the close of the meeting at
the c(hritian church last nillht, 10 per
sons came forward to affiliate with
the church. It was the greatest service
thus far in the revival. The meeting
was in honor of "Mother." Every part
of the service was related to the sub
ject of mothherhood. White flowers
and white ribbons in her memory were
profuse. Mr. Ridenour sang. "Homo
Evangaeist lltvers preached on thp
"(lory unand Ieal,onslblity of Mothers."
It was a message freighted with rich
truths and telling llustrations. Mr.
!$tiveru showed his ability to fit the
falcts of religion In with daily expert
onee. lie said:
"The three greatest words to Ie)
found inll the English language are
'Mother, Ilnmi and Heaven.' What it
homi withlout montht, and what would
hairven he without love and the tie of
holmt? Mother's name Is a saored one,
;In ought to be held In the highest
esteerm. In all of my ministry I have
never hieard anyone take her name In
vaL. BuIt I hVOe heard men take
i;(la's name lin vuln. If there is any
lthing that Is low and contemptible it
is the oman that uses profane language.
Men, if you are addicted to that habit,
for the sake of your wife and family
stop it. No one should take God's
name In vainl. Mothers have a great
Influence in'this ,wmorld. I knew of '
son who left home and went to clerk
Ing hi a d partnment store in Chicago,
and as he left his mother told him that
every Sunday morning when the bells
were ringing for church, she would be
down on her knees praying for her
boy. It was the next Sunday that this
boy gave his heart to Christ, and 'to
day is a prosperous business mn in
that city. Again, think of mother's
prayers. They have girdled the earth
Swith their inflqence. Mothers, don't
stop praying ft. your boys, and .boyr,
be kind to yopr mothers. Treit' he
kindly, while she is alive. Give e` a
flowers now and do not watt till slhile
dead and then get a spray of roses and
place them on her casket. Postmortem
praise dotns no one any good. You can
psttpone your mother's funeral by
treating her kindly. Many years ago
in New J..rsey a by was breaking his
mtother's heart by living a life of sin.
She begged him to give it up and live
a righteous life. One night lie comes
itoine front his hllalnt of sin finds hlis
mother pralying for her sinful boy. lHe
atsks her forgi.vceua and gives his life
to Christ. The nieed of the world to
day Is Chrlstian men. Great men make
great nations, but don't forget thalt
back of great mIu n ore great mothers.
Napoleont %le one timo asked, 'What Is
pIrance's greatest need?' He replied,
'Mothers.' He ought to have said.
'Christian mothers,' and then France
would not have that falsehood written
on the blg arch that leads to the cem
etery. 'Death Is an Eternal Bleep.' If
lrance would have had Christian
mothers she would have been a mighty
nation today. This sarvice tonight is
in honolir of 'Motthrr.' Have you ever
Unswered your mother's prayer? Why
not now'? Come, while we sing."
