Fire Chief Fox I of thle opitllon that 'the fire in tie house of Mrs. .t~.eWaret Richter on Nora street was at Itncendtary origin. The fire broke out about 10 o'clock Friday evening, while lMrs. Ritgiter and her little boy were up town. iOpeaklng of the fire, hlieft Fox said: "There is aheolutey no doutbt but that the fire was a coal oil fire and that It was set deliberate )y. The ,little girl. Mildred, was stay ing at the Ericksons' and about 10 o'clock she lbecanle sleepy and went home. She found lie house full of smoke' and rulhed hIalk to the Erick eons.' iHowever, Mrs. Erickson had already potive.I the smoke and had turned il the alarm. When we got there, we found the front door blocked by the piano and three clntirs IehhinI 1hat.

Next to the heart there Is no organ of the body nmore susceptible to an abnormal increase of fatty tissue, than the liver When the live.r becomes too fat, Its action Is iin peaed, allowling the fatmaking foods to make mnore fat than is needed for normal synnllllnetry. The liver, clogged with excess fat, becomes inactive, and, from dis ease, the nature of the organ un dergoes a change. Constlpation, headaches, billousness and similar local disturbances of the system are not the least of the fat man or woman's troubles, for the rolls and layers of fat on all portions of the body Increase, clogging other organs, paving the way to obesity. All this can be avoided, if the proper remedy Is resorted to at once. Nothing ever dis covered for the removal of fat is so effective as the famous Mar mola Prescription.

ANNUAL INTERCMNOLASTIC ON MONTANA FIELD WILL NI BIGGOER AND IBTTER. The inttershcolastlc track meet, held under the ausplces of. the Uni* versity of IMontana. Is to be held this year May ' to 10. It will be a big ger and better meet than ever before. The usual number of Montana schools will he entered, and In addition ap plication for admissilon to the meet has been made by several Idaho high schools. These schools will be taken into the meet on the same condl tions as the non-aeoredited high schools of the state, which means that they will be entertained while at the meet, but their railroad expenses .will not be paid. The Missoula high school will have a good team. and will be an impor tant factor in the meet. They are having daily practlce. are getting into shape fast. and are hoping to carry off their share of honors. As the meet has grown In numlbers attending from year to year, the ex penises have Increased proportionatelg. Last year 400 return railroad tickefs were sold, hallowing the attendance from outside the city. This year the indications are good for a still larger number of visitors. The visitors are made up almost entirely from the ilgh school pupils of the state and their teachers as chaperons. This is tilhe season, also, when the alumni and former students of the university plan to return and renew acquaintances. It is the biggest week of the year for the university in number of people present, In enthusiasm and In Inter est. The expenses of the meet last year were nearly $1,000 in excess of the receipts. To the committee in charge of the nmeet one of two things seems nbsolutely necessary: Either to reduce the expenses by reducing the number from the high schools whose expenses are paid or to call upon the citizens of Missoula for help. There are many reasons why the former method should not be followed. There is no alternative but to call upon all the citizens of Missoula for help. The plan is to make an advance sale of, tickets. No donations or con tributions are solicited. The campaign for the sale of tickets is to be made on tile basis of a sale of $2.000 worth or admissions. Since our friends at Roseman sold more than this amount in tickets for their basketball tour nament in their enterprising city. which has about half the population of Missoula. It Is believed there should he no difficulty Ill securing this amolllunt of sales in' advance, or even mlore,. With this bale and the gate receipts from those who cannot he reached. It Is expected that the re ceipts will cover tile expenses. The Interscholastic meet confers great Ienefit on the city of Missoula, the university, the high schools of the state, and the Individual pupils from thle high scllools In attendance at tile meet. It Is a gratuitous work for the faculty of the university, is not required of them itn connection with their work, and they must hear the financial burden as a labor of love. It is mnluch the businestl or tile peo ple of Missoula to See that tile meet is carried on buccersflully as It Is the ushtlIlless of tile faculty, for Missoula IllUlt be expected to give generous aid to all reas.nabule attemllpts to adver tise alnd buildl up tile attendance of the The meet is of benefit to the city or Missoula because it brings to the city a large number of young people from various portions of the state. many teachers and princlpals and many other visitors, at a season when the town looks its prettiest and Is at its best. Through these people and through the press its gets generous advertisement. Hundreds of people see the city anld surrounding country and are able' to give first hand In formation. Incidentally these people spend considerable money in various ways. The meet is of great value to the university hecause every year from 200 to 250 high sclhodl pupils and teachers visit thle library, the labora tories, the shops. tile tmuseum and tile various departments, get first ha.nd information in regard to the university and its equipment, and are given a taste of a democratic univer sity atmosphere. Suchl information is of tile greatest 'value to tue visitors, and (an he of the greatestavalue in possible return to the university. It putS the university faculty in touch with the high schlolI people In a way not possible under other conditions. Tllis acquaintance is of mutual bene. fit. Tihe meet also gives the univer sity students an opportunity to menet the pupils from the high schools and tell themn what the university work It It in of benefit to tile .ligh sclhools of the state because It gives the utollo Is a (lhane to measure the val. ther and ability of students froml their icllools with that of other schools. The debate, the declamatory contest, the field contests, all serve to give a complarison of tihe mental and pity sulal strength of tIhe competing schools. These contests serve to ce mellt lhigh school feeling, to produce a pull-together spirit that is very nec essary andll thereby lessens petty In ternal troubles and Jealousies. Thile Interest Inl tle homlne school .brings froml thel town citizen support to a remarkathle extent, makes the towns take grllater interest in their schools, and rallies support fromn all quarters. All of these combined forces assist. materially in getting the best returns froml boys and girls whose material, moral and physical natures are In a formative condition, and when they most readily respond to external stimuli. The meet is of great benefit to the individuals in the meet for the fol lowing reasons: Many of them are given a chance to see a bit of the big and beautiful Treasure state which they otherwise would not have. trom Miles City to 'Misloula, or fromn Glas pow to Missoula, is a long way, a$ tar as from Chicago to Pittsburgh, Farther from Chicago to St. Louls. rombif " ih* i ter citiseni 6t spread a u. spirit for MLo.nrthe growinog p t , diffr t towns and , '171te lhq personally h unliversttyI They are aptD eO* w i th t ta a supreme e It tvery desirble thing forp . evs 't . girl.A4 It, perchanoa, ooi teMl is not W they kno W t, fm , donee to equal or outol tlhwiillar . rl thus measure thip ltty with that of pupils from otle Itd ,ethaps distaeit schools.

I If these arguments appeal to the people as logical the advance sale of tickets to the meet will be large. The committee presenting the meet should receive cordial reception. The initial efforts show that the citisens are awake to the 'situation, and the re sults are very gratifying. MILE WALK S WORTH THREE THOUSAND SEEDS frs. Amanda Francis brought sult against the Northern Paoific Railway company in the district court yesterday, asking $3,000. Her complaint sets out that on November 20, 1911. she pur chased a ticket at Missoula for Mc Quarrie, 14 miles east. The train didn't stop at McQuarrie. but she was let off a mile on the other side, "en cumbered with much bag'gage." It was late in the afternoon, It Is alleged, and she faced the unpleasant alternative of leaving the baggage there or carrying it to McQuarrie. She elected the lat ter course and. being not strong, was injured. This is worth the $3,000 mentioned before, according to the papers of the suit. "CLEANUP DAY" HAS ITS SPLENDID EFFECT "Cleanup Day" did a lot of good yesterday, even if the molstures of the day was a drawback to a certain ex tent. "'Tn satisfied," said Commis sioner Price, the father of the idea, last evening, "for a lot of good work was done today. The people have been cleaning up for several weeks, any how, and there wasn't a great deal left to be done. What there was Is now out of the road. practically. It was a good day."

SOCeI LIST NoDBS (Contributed.) n riespopse to a letter asking aid, a coantribtion was made at last Sun dtyt' local to the striking button work oer of Mucatine, Iowa. These strik. ser have had to contend with a new klad of "scab" in the Ladle' Aid so cleties of the churches, it is elalmed, who were mvlting to supply the places of babies, and the old or. crippled.. There latter had worked for a miser able pittanee, not enough to kesp soul and body together; for a wage that was a disgrace to the name of human-I Ity, and women who had doubtless never' felt the pinch of poverty by their act helped to make the condition of these wronged workel's still harder. It is time that women everywhere fol lowed the good example set by some of our ohurches here in Missoula and study soolal problems.of today. Some of the local's time was given to a disussimon of the elsotlen returns fr Milwaukee and Butte. It was pointed out that these results mcre in so seras a defeat of the soclallst party, am in both cagee the socialist vote wed materially increased; that in reality they fulflead Mark ftnna's prediction of the growing strength of the s mi% which wolid unite )he ldd , 0openly in Milwaukee, or covet as ia Butte. The growth of olkMt rl-R irked by, .industrial rather than political gains, and this is coming, to. be generally recognised. The Boy Scouts are turning out their graduates early. A 14-year-old boy. It is reported, has killed another child of nine. This happened In New York city. The young murderer was returning from a target praetlee of the Scouts, and the younger boy having disobeyed the commands of his uni formed elder,-was at once shot down. This church Scout had learned his lesson well, and when arrested is said to have told thedetectives that he knew how to take care of himself. Father John YT. Belford, pastor of the Church of Nativity, finds himself in the limelight of pubtlicity on ac count of a statement he made that "Sooalists should be silenced, if need be, by a bullet." Bouck White pro tested against this appeal to murder. This elicited the following reply from Father Belford: "Please assure that timid violet, Mr. Botck White, that our congregass tion has agreed that they will not shoot any colored socialists, but I find it hard to get the children to promise that they will not kick them in the shins. Very truly, "JOHN I. BELFORD." Now it transpires that Bouck White is not a negro, and the sole effect of this letter has been to make plain this brand of Christianity and antagonise the negroes. Meanwhile, the socialists are camping on the trail of Father Belford, and an application has been made for his arrest. The British Labor college 'is similar to' the Rand school' of this country in thiat' gt rives. the.workers the oppor topity to study evolution, economics, logic. rhetoric and socilology. Its pur pose is to educate speakers to aid the working class movement. Trade unions often.. pay the expenses of, pupils chosen from their number to repre sent them at college.
