At Patln Beach the other day whlen a thoughtless (or worse) Ol ung man had made all arranigeents oer the bathing costumnes on the beach to the accompaniment of a talking machine, a mother who had a proper sense of her duty declined to have her daughters take part in such a proceeding and the vul garl Iperformlance was nipped in the bu,1. But where are the mothers that demand a restraining hand? Do they no longer care about the amusements their dautghters seek? SAre they, no longer concerned lhow\ THE WORK OF THE THIRTEENTH There are varying opinions as to the value of the work of the Thirteenth assembly. We have read in some of the newspapers of the state the assertion that it was all good. From other sources, we have heard that it was all bad. Some of our non-committal contemporaries have gone boldly on record as saying that some of the work was good and some of it was bad. As a matter of fact, there are not many per sons in the state who have much of an idea as to what the Thirteenth really did, aside from wrangling a whole lot and wasting much time in mimic warfare. The record is not yet complete. At the capitol, state officers and clerks are busily engaged in getting the results of the session into definite form. We understand that there exists the usual chaotic condition relative to much of the work which was done during the last mad rush. For a couple of days, at least, two important bills were lost entirely. We do not know whether they were ever found or not. During the last two days of the ses sion there were amendments concerning which not much is known by others than those who tacked on the amend ments. It is reported, unofficially, that there was some juggling with the commission-government bill on the last night of the session. Nobody seems to know whether this is a correct report or not. This morning, in its news columns, The Missoulian prints the first of a series of articles which will summarize the bills passed by the legislature, giving briefly the provisions of the measures. This summary will of necessity be brief on account of the large number of bills passed, but it will be sufficiently detailed to give a clear idea of the general pro visions of each measure. The Missoulian has assigned to this work in the capitol a man who is experienced in this line of work and who is giving careful attention to the matter in hand. We believe the articles will be found interesting and helpful; they will enable the people of the state to learn just what was accom plished by the assembly in sixty days. There will be no dis cussion of the measures-the summary will merely present in outline the purpose and provisions of each bill. The day after the adjournment of the session, The Mis soulian printed a list of the bills which had been passed and sent to the governor, but this was merely a list of the titles; it was valuable at the time, but it was not as complete as will be the articles of the present series. These current articles will be found valuable for preservation. The first installment, given this morning, gives the provisions of the public-utilities bill. This will be found specially interesting. their daughters dress?

Haskin. lVhn ti', United atates purchased .\Alsta fr'ml tRuissut it was believed that there in\eir clilld arise between it ad Great lBritain a dispute over the boundary between the territory tand British ('iolultbia,. The boundary was fixed ndetr a treaty, made in 1825, Iibetlweoe RuII'ssia and Great Britain, one end ot it to c',onsist of the 141st me ridatll. and the other end to he con stituted l. lit t line drawn across the smiimrilit if several mountain peaks, frlom Mount St. Elias to and through ! the Portland canal.

ThereVl was one stret''h Iof 12) i ilehs that iwas fixed by the trib unall inly within clrt ain limits, and Ihfile lllmission was authorized definitely to fix the exact outindary in this stretch. tBefore t t I nscolthery of gold In AAlaska felw Ipeople bothered their heads albout .nund ari(s in what see nd,' to th the deslt tha r thegi where all the lunl ill dii>lpate was not worth the money and I ains it woudl cost to set til lht. argument. But when the rush ng the trKlobndike began tofe Lndanadia followed Sgovernllmnnt enstrltedit a tvhgra irl koverland to Dawson, Swhile Uthe inted States laid a cable from Seattle to SHitka and a tolegraph line to Valdez t and Fort Eghert. It was then that Alaska became worth considering, and the United States and Great Britain pointed to different mountain peaks as those referred to In the treaty of 1825, - with the result that the treaty creat ing the tribunal of London followed apace. t The real owork of marking the Alas kan boundary, under the directlon of Ithe Alaskan boundary commission, fel upon the shoulders of Thomas Riggs Jr., the American engineer in charge and his associates, while Canada had - similar party in the field working it conjunction with them. i.Mr. Riggs wal no "new" man when he w'ent to Alaski to help tie a ground boundary to the stars, and to fix it so permanently ant so definitely that even though moun tains were to remove themselves into the sea and valleys were to rise up intt the hills, that boundary would still bt fixed. He had "hit the trail" wher gold was discovered in Alaska, and had wrested with,the -transportation prob lems upon whose solution depends the opening up of this virgin empire of natural wealth. The work of marking the Alaskan boundary will have cost the United States approximately three quarters of a million dollars when it is finished next year. It represents some of the best boundary work in the world, and the 600-miles section of it, reaching from dMount St. Elias to the Arctic ocean, is the world's longest exactly surveyed straight line. The southern part of this line had to be run across mountains covered with perpetual snows and over glariers'of eternal ice. But as the work progressed northward the elevation became lower, and from the White river to the Arctic there is a brief summer season free from ice and cold, and a region where game on the land and game in the water abound in profusion--white sheep in unnum bered thousands, wide-antlered moose, caribou and bear--and where, in the words of Dr. Riggs, 'greyling are not caught with hook and line, but are kicked out of the wateir. The boundary is being marked by cl aring off all timber for a distance of 10 feet on either side. At points al ways within sight of one another aluminum-bronze monuments are set up to locate the exact position of the line. At important river crossings and along highways of travel these monu ments are five feet high, and are em bedded in a ton of concrete; at less important points monuments three feet high, planted in 1,500 pound concrete bases, are set up. These points are geodetically determined, or located, by the stars. They will serve as the basis of all future surveys. WVhile the line was being run the to pographers were at work with their plane-tables, plotting the country around. They climbed up to the tops of mountain peaks where they could get a good view of the surrounding country, and recorded on their plane table sheets the elevations, the drain age, and even the character of the timbhr. A line of precise levels was run by which the elevation above the sea of any given point could be deter mined. The resulting maps are said to be about the best example of the sur veyor"s art that have been made on any houlndarv. The difficulty of running a long line was perhaps greater than any encoun te-red in recent history. For over 200 miles across perpetual snow and lpriimeval glacieirs, the supplies of the surv\'eling larty had to beh carried on the batcks of horses. T.o miles an hour ural six hours a day represented good progress. U'lpon ole occasion it took the p'ck train 23 gy's to travel less than 200 miles, and of the 75 horses with which it started, only 24 reached their destination. In the summner the mosquitoes were often so bad that mosquito netting and bandana handkerchiefs were a neces sity, and the horses had to be cov ered from head to tail and from ear to hoof before they could graze In the open. But in winter huge fires had to be built to thaw out things, the pack ers' fingers were frozen, and hardship and danger were the rule, and comfort and pieace the exception. Tragedies occurred every now and then. The body of a poor ex-dog driver of the northwestern police was found in the river. tipon the assem hling of a stump coroner's jury, the Canadian coroner declared the evidence showed that the holy was found on the Alaskan side, and, therefore, he was without jurisdicVtion, and so it fell to, the lot of the Americans to fashion. a eoffin out of storehoxsis and bury the dwg-driver In a shabll,iw grave. Two sur\veyors overtaken liy a snowstorm, sought shelter in a little vacant cabin by breaking into it. They read that the. oeupant had left in June and would hI haIck in Sepltiember. ,Later a blroken, raft on a lig.jain, a piece of turn tent and a rusted rifle told the story of the nlen who never came back. Two- energetic young Amterican sur \voy, rs start'ed home ony11, to die from the hardshipls enduried anld injuries re i-i\-l d in thie linei of iluty.

And, most pitiful of all, teia, were Iereft of reason as they lablored for their countryv.

HTere is a home-made remedy that takes hold of a cough instantly, and will usually cure the most stubborn case in 24 hours. This recipe makes a pint- enough for a whole family. You couldn't buy as much or as good ready-made cough syrup for $2.50. IMix one pint of granulated sugar with % pint of warm water, and stir 2 minutes. Put 2% ounces of Pinex (fifty cents' worth) in a pint bottle, and add the Sugar Syrup. This keeps perfectly and has a pleasant taste-children like it. Braces up the appetite and is slightly laxative, which helps cund a cough. You probably know the medical value of pine in treating asthma, bronchitis and other throat troubles, sore lungs, etc. There Is nothing better. Piner is the most valuable concentrated compound of Norway white pine extract, rich in guaiacol and all the natural healing pine elements. Other preparations will not work in this formula. The prompt results from this Inexpen sive remedy have made friends for it in thousands of homes in the United States and Canada, which explains why the plan has been imitated often, but never successfully. A guaranty of absolute satlsfactlon, or money promptly refunded, goes with this recipe. Your druggist has Pinex, or will it t for you.

When they reached Rampart House with a steamboat car rying horses, the Indians could not be lieve their eyes. Could there be a hun dred white men in the world? Was the smoke - and - steam - spouting monster riding up through the rapids a creature from another world? When the horses were turned out into the open to stretch their legs and roll on the turf, all the dogs of the village turned tail and fled to the hills, there to remain for days. The Indians took to their huts and barred their doors, and for two days whispered about the strange hornless caribou. Once the engineers encountered an epidemic of smallpox among the In dians. Their possessions had to be burned, amid heartburnings and pro tests. Each Indian has to be washed with antiseptics, and vaccine had to be brought into play. The situation de manded action of the most rugged kind, and it was forthcoming, with the result that what might have been an epidemic reaching to the uttermost ends of in habited Alasika, was nipped in the bud. The surveyors became a law unto themselves, and within a radius of a hundred miles a system of rigid inspec tion and vaccination was enforced. And so the boundary was established. With every man a hero, living every day more stories than Kipling and Zogbaum could invent, perhaps not one of them could entertain an audience as well as a third-rate lecturer, for they were men of action rather than of speech. When the story of Alaska is written there will be many pages de voted to the self-sacrifice and devo tion of those who endured hardships and faced dangers as great as those of the most sanguinary battle. (Tomorrow-Spring Flowers.) GREAT NORTHERN MEN ARRIVE IN KALISPELL Kalispell. March 12.-(Special.) Much interest is attached locally to the arrival this morning of a party of (Great Northern officials. Included in the party were Vice President J. M1. G(ruher. General Manager GC. 1I. lan erson, General Superintendent (. (). Jenks. Freight and Passenker Agent J. T. MclGaugherty of Helena, who ar rived from Helena last night. The plarty arrived by special train from Whitefish accompanied by Superin tendent W. R. Smith after spending several days in the division town. Recent rumors of construction of the Libby cut-off west of this place and re-establishment of the main line Over this route lent significance to the visit of the railway officials, although general inspection of trade conditions was given as a reason for the visit by Mr. Gruber.

St. Louis, March 12.-Governor Ma jor restored citizenship today to Julius I Lehman, former member of the St. Louis house of delegates, who served four years of a seven-year peniten tiary sentence for bribery following conviction in the municipal boodle trials prosecuted by Joseph V. Folk as circuit attorney. Lehmann is crit ically ill at his home here. OF PUBLIC INTEREST Editor Missoulian-In a press dis patch sent out through the papers of the state, is the account of the con viction and sentence of the man Smith, from near Laurel, who had been guilty of the statutory crime against his 13-year-old stepdaughter. This dispatch was misleading in that it stated the girl was in the Hlouse of Good Shepherd soon to become a mother. Another account had her in one of the state institutions. I wish to correct these statenlents. She is in the IFlorence Crittenton hime, the only maternity home in the state, out silde, of course, the regular and county hospitals. It was through the work of the nla tron of this home that the guilty man was applrehenllded. Already one of the humllalle officers of the state has writ ten his thanks to this good wo'man for her assistance in this case. As a home, \\e appreciate thle amendled law, as given by the last legislative as semlily in raising the age of consellt from 16 to 18 years. \We expect to see reslults of no small proiportion thtrolgh this la\V'. For two years Vwe have been dlisseminiating tile fteits of our work throughout the state, so that intelli gent action would be( taken in legal enactments. And with the help of the humane officers and others interested we hope the results will amply prove the wisdom of the measure. Sincerely, MRS.

It was further stated that a water main would have to be built by the county to the west side site should it lie selected, at an expense of $5,500, while water would he carried to the south side grounds free.
