The rain was Worth a million--and 4hen some. It came just in time for the crops in western Montana, es pecially In the Frenchtown valley and and in the reservation country. There is rejoicing in all parts of the west end of the state over the timely arrival of the abundant supply of moisture and the reports which reached The Mlsnoullan office yester day Indicated that we may now de Iend upon a good crop this year in all parts of this region. The Bitter Root received its share of the rain and the Blackfoot country was thor oughly soaked. It was worth a mil lion, even if It did interfere with the ball games. IN THE LIMELIGHT. Vor a good nliany years-in fact, ever since Anaronda was founded- "Jimmlle" Johnson has dwelt in the shadow of the big stack or in the umbra of its predtecessars, and has gone his way as an enterprising citizen of the Copper city, promoting race meetings and selling ipool, and has enjtyet the esteem of Ils towns men to the extent that thely have made him county conmislsioner and have, front time, to time, conferred other local hionors upon him. But, outsilde' his ihltal Iadmirors unless we exceptll Jerry Flanagan of Butte and one or two others of the big camp--Mr. Jtohnson was not wiell known throiughlout the state. It seemed that Jimmie was born to blush unseen until he, gt g i plce on the Mintana dejePation to laltlinore. When he wont this dstistlnctin, there; were mIany lMontanallns hllil asked, "Who Is W. J. Johnsonil " But now Jltiminoe ftinds hlinmsf well known all over ilthe statet. Never again will Ianybiody ask is t, hlls identity; never agaitn will tiere li, an inquiry as ito his locatlon olr his leanings. 1'or the limeligllt hla tIeeli " turned upln Jimmnine and h finds himself kUown in every corner of lihe state-nolorilous if nit famouils.

T'rhey are giving him bhi hefdlltnes; they Ire toasting hlln Iplety; Ithey aire saying mean thttingi shouti I ,m nrtl his connections. They are making a niltakei ill this, for Jimmie is not a bad fellow. Hie, is not doing any worse than did the whole democratic state convenltion, which elected Bruce Kremneir nationial committeeman, for he is just follow Ing the lead of Kremer. The elo quent Bruce rolled his eyes alnd called upon God to witness that lie was a loyal Bryan man. The, convention believed him, Jimmie Johnson be lieved him. The Montana democrats sent Kremer east as their reprsnen tatlve on the national committee and Jimmle Johnson siurely had a right to think that it was proper to tollbw the lead of imramer.

The Roxoman news paper has been reading some of the eorporation-lnspired 'ttterantes 'of te Missoula Sentinel and concerning lme of then has this comment: The Courier ref eti thati the Hlfesoula Sentinel has set out with the avowed Jntention ' tryingI to defeat Senator Joseph M. Dixen for re-election. Progreslive re publicans throughout this big state -and they are In the majority despite' the. manipulations of, the Amalgamated Copper company at the Livingston conventionl.rec ognise in Senator Dixon the logi cal state I ader of the party. And it for no other reason than that the Amalgamated has sworn to* "get" Dixon, the rank and file of the party will doubtless stand by him. As for'the Sentinel's challenge to name 5G of the prominent re .publicans of the state "who would even sign a set of resolu tions Indorsing his record," that all depends on the Interpretation of the word "prominent." If the SentineJ refers to those cnow nominally in charge of the party organisation in Montana and who, beneath the surface, are engineered by the Amalgamited, possibly the challenge will stand. for certain it is these henchmen of the Amalgamated company, sueh as L4nstrum of Helena and Leon ard of Hutte, have no love for Senator Dixon. They have their orders and know where to "head in." If the i rntinel refers to those representatives of the rank and file of the republican party in Montana-the men who will, on the adoption of the direct primary, wrest control from the bosses and keep it for the people-It has missed its guess a mile. Gallatin county is tucked away on the edge of the eastern slope of Montana-a long way off from ISenator Dixon's home city, but the Courier assures the Sentinel in all earnestness that Gallatin county republicans recognise the sterling worth of their senator at Washington and that there Is a host of republicans in this broad valley, any and all of whom are ready and willing to take off their coats and work 'for Joe Dixon. T'he man who put through the long and short haul measure in congress is good enough for the republicans of Montana. At this distance from Miasoula it would seem to be to the shame of the Garden city that any Iart of her citisenry should seek to terpu dlate the otne man who had sig tinily helped to bring that com munity to the front. And to the Missoula Sentinel and to M4.enator Dixon we would say: "If Mlssoula doesn't ap pr'ciate, the man. loasemlan doets, and Bosemtan would cordially welcome Joseph M. Dixon to her portals and would be proud to claim his cltisenship." We have also the good-roads con ventlon to look after; then there is the Elks' convention and the Eagles' meeting, as well; the Fourth and the circus, likewise, are about to arrive in our midst. First It was Harper's Weekly that crahhed the Wilson game; now the steam roller folks say that Bryan has queered it again. It Is a matter of history that It has never rained In Missoula on the Fourth. This i a precedent to reckon on. We are much ohllgd that the storml did not develop into a tornaudo until after it had crossed the range. Nor does the steam roller seem ncllined to yield the track to the dark ihorse or any other kind of a horse. But It's a cinch that none of the Tammany delegates are suffering for lack of cash at Baltimore. A demntcratie conve.ntion that baits lryn lli s i demnsllltntlon of what the roller anl do.

Haskin The health department of the Gen eral Federation of Wttmen's Clubs was organised in 1906 to keep step with the growing intteiredt upon this subject, but from the beginning the federation has been in the front among the organisationu working for the improvement of the health condi tions of the nation. The keynote of the movement in which the women of the federation are working is the develop ment of vitality and their aim is to increase the power to live and to work, as well as to help cure or even to prevent disease. At the beginning the women o9 only one state took up the work outlined by the health de lpartment, but for four years past every state federation has had an active working committee of women making energetic efforts in the direc tion of elimination of disease. In ad dition to t1heir other work, during the first two years of the existence of the health department of the women of the federation raised and expended over $35,000 for health purposes in different parts of the country. It is generally conceded that there is no philanthropic work in which the club women have been ewgaged that hlas been smore productive of good re sults than the movement in the In. terest of public health. They have co-operated in every reform nmoves nlent brought out by the health offit cers of the different states. Dr. Crumn bine, the secretary of the Kansas Board of llealth, said recently:, "I have every reason tQo t(e raVeful for the mornl support as well as the active co-opleraion of thp Kansas Fed eratlon of Club Womhen. I have never made an appeal to the club women of any town in this state (and my ap peals have been numerous during the past three years) but that it has been pronmptly and generously responded to. The state -board of health has a trav eling tuberculosis exhibit. In every town In which we go we first get In touch with the local women's olubs. We find without exception that the clubs lend their Influence In getting the people out to see the exhibit and to listen to our lectures, We simply could nut get along without the help of the women in this particular. When the state board' of health abolishes the ommunon drinking' eup upon. the raiH way tral1. "6 l44 the"ipu.itl' lbQ9ot of the state, we were subjected to con elderabte abuse upon the part df lthe mule., traveling public and theaslle memibA of 'the schools, who think no further than their own personal con venlenge. But from the start we had the fu'i Support of all of thqe omen's clubs. The same thing is true regard Ing all of our reform measuses." One of the newer matters to which the federation is turning its atten tion is the Inauguration of an active crusade for the conservation of vision. 'IThis crusade is (Waging warfare against infantile blindness, and in many clties the club women are care fully studying this matter, investigat ing its causes, means of prevention and legislative measures which might be taken to lessen its prevalence. This subject appeals especially to mothers, and lectures upon the care of the eyes of young" Infants are becoming a prominent feature of the social service work inaugurated by the women's clubs. In addition to this the cam paigl for the conservation of vision provides for the inspection of the eyes of public school children, the tree services of, oculists and the sup ply of glasses if needed, and also the proper lighting of shops and factories in. which the employee are engaged upon any occupation callng for con. tinual, eye service,. Letures upon all of these subjects are betas provided under the auspices of tite, women's clubs which co-operate with any other Qganisation working for the same ob I,,,aThe general federation dbpartment of epplith stands firmly 0p support of the estriilslhment of a national board of health, believing that oply by this means can certain reforms become uniform. Such a department could be composed by the union of several bu reaus already in existenop which could be transferred from the departments in which they are now located. The marine hospital servioe couldbe trans ferre4 from the treasury department, the division of vital statistics could be transferred from the bureau of oensus of the department of commiroe and labor, and the bursau of chemistry could be transferred fron. the depart. ment of agrloulture.

In. this way. A wealthy inan recently wrote: "I have read in the papers of the work club women are doing to help tuberculosis, We have done all that money can do for my daughter. Can you tell us anything else to try?" Prom a distant state comes a letter from a woman: "I am too poor to have a physician. Must I die when I might live?" From the north comedalnother appeal saying: "Tlhs man is ordered sodth by his" doctor. His moans are limited. He must live cheaply." Can yog suggest anythling? And ,to each a hei.ing hand is given. T~he rich man way provided with a nurse specially trdined for tuberculosis, under whose cafe his daughtdr is being restored to health. The poor woman was placed in charge of her local women's club and her needs were attended to. The sick man was provided with a list of sanitoria in the south and given let terp qf Introduction., l!ch made It possible for hilm to enter aq In.tltu. tob .til the right Iidality for his all ment; fimn which lie wot:e:' " am feeling better than ever before in years." He will soon be able to be come a wage earner again. in order that there may be no du plication of ,work for the same object, the Women's clubs of some cities di vide their activities In health work. The club women of Nashville, Tenn., did this. The health chairman of one club distributes literature, another in vestigates the sanitary conditions of public schools and other buildings another looks after the sanitation markets and other places of food supply, while still another attends to the placing of health exhibits and di rects the health lecture courses. This last work is especially taxing. It In cludes providing audiences with 'lec turers and lecturers With, audiences. One committee laes collected a health library of practical value, which is available to anyone deslring it, and another has organised and is looking after an increasing number of "Keep Well clubs" In the factories aLnd work shops, which are a speclal effort of the Tennessee Federation of Women's Clubs. The anti-fly Crusade is sweepilng over' the country and the club women are helping it. In Ban Francisco and several other cities an equally vigor ous campaign Is being wiaed agalnst rats. In several towns in New Jersey the club women are demonstrating the fact that even the "Jersey skeeter" cannot withstand their united warfare. While the mosquito warfarie is barely begun, there is little doubt of tle, final conquest of the pest. the board of health of MIbntlair,, N. J., has re cently passed an ordinance provlhinl a fine of $10 a day to the"owner of any property providing a breodldi place for mosquitoes, and the club women are planning a vigilant arm palgn in quest of improperly drained land and stagnant pools that may pro duce "wrigglers." The health activities of the women's clubs include many things not yet made public, as well as every known effort to promote the health conditions of any community, Elxperiments are coastantly being made in the krdi vidual clubs which, It successful, will be presented to the great International organisation In older that the benefits may be as widely distributed t ,pose. sibls, Tomorrow-"Women's Club Work."

Burns, the detective who brought q about the arrest of the McNamatra brothers, took the stand late today in I the trial of Clarence S. Darrow for jury bribery. FPTve minutes 'after his direct examination was begun by Di- I trict Attorney Fredericks Mr. BUrStn asked the protection of the court, and a short time later was fined 1$0 tor 4 contempt. A similar fine was lmr I posed upon' Chief Counsel Ulrl Rogers of the .defense, at the same time. 1Judge Hutton announced when im posing the fines, that he would not allow the personal differences between I Rogers and Burns to interfere with I the orderly conduct of the trial. The outbreak was precipitated by Air. Darrow's reference, in the course of an objection, to Burns as a "won dertul man." He immediately with drew the remark, saying it was ':un true," and Rogers audibly asked him not to withdraw it. Durns, turning to the court, resented the action of Rogers. Burns continued his state ment by declaring that IRogers had denounced him in open court as a sulborner of perjury. "Yes, and I repeat it again," shout ed Rogers. The detelctive appealed for the pro tection of the court. Burns' brief direct examination was confined chiefly to corroboration of the evidence of Detective Biddinger, who preceded him on the stand. Burns' cross-examination will be ibegun when the trial Is resumed at 9:80 tomorrow m6rning. (Detective (Biddinger said on cross examination that he had lied to Dar row while pretending to betray Burns to him. The story about E. A.
