An adjourned meeting of the MalIta c City Council was held Tuesday even- ( ing in Tressler & Kirton's office, L which was a long-drawn out, acrimon- t ions affair. The debates were de- t cidedly heated, and the atmosphere f sulphurous owing to too wide diver gence of opinion. This arose over t the proposed acceptance of the water- I works system and the payment of f Mr. Kemper, and also the use of the I city mains as a test for the fire t department. The ayes won out, and I the bills for the special water improvement districts Nos. 4 and 5, 1 and the special water improvement districts Nos. I and 2 were ordered a paid in full. I Some citizens were present and e objection to payment of Mr. Kemper c was made because it is thought that 1 the systems were not inspected thor- I oughly prior to payment, and that i they should be looked over by a ] competent disinterested expert, in I behalf of the city before Kemper is I paid. Another thing which seemed so manifestly unfair to many present was that Mr. Kemper refused abso lutely to let the Malta Fire Depart ment take charge of the waterworks system long enough to test its efficiency in fighting tire. This is one of the main reasons why Malta needed and put in the system, and it looks very peculiar, to say the least, that Mr. Kemper should refuse this. Instead of an expert being appointed by the city to inspect the new systems the three members of the council were appointed for this duty. Among other business transacted several bills were ordered paid, and Chas. Wolfe was appointed city marshal and was required to furnish a bond of $1,000. A. S. Hanscom was asked if he would open a set of books for the city, as the city accounts are getting too voluminous for desultory hand ling. lie took the proposition under consideration. The council also adopted resolutions "of reapsi t to the memory of the late1 M yor Vhilip Caselberg, 'wbiclft# printed elsewhere in this issue. Accused Murderer Brought Back. J. A. Crisler, the man accused of the murder of Julius Brown up near Opheim several months ago, was brought back to Glasgow last week Saturday from Canada whether he had tied, and locked up in the county jail, where he will remain until his preliminary hearing which is set for Monday, November 2:3d. His brother, Charles L. Crisler, of Brook, Ind., arrived in Glasgow shortly after his arrival, and will remain until his brother's trial. It is not decided as yet who will defend ('risler, as no definite arrange ments have been made for his defy nse. Poisonous Plants on the Range. Six of the poisonous plants that canse the heaviest losses of livestock on western ranges are described with the aid of full page photographs in i circular just published by the United States department of agriculture under the title, "Principal Poisonous Plants of the Western Stock Hauiges." Despite the damage that these plants do every year there are many stockmen who do not recognize them and in consequence are unable to protect their stock effectively from being poisoned by them. It is proba ble that there are on the range a number of poisonous plants but the heaviest losses are those produced by the plants named in the circular. These are the zykadenus, or death camas, the lupine, the rattleweed or white loco. one of the worst of the many varieties oIf loco plants, the tall larkspur and the cicuta or water hemlock. Of these the cicuta alone is dangerous to man, causing violent convulsions and even death. The root of it, however, is the only poisonous part. In the case of the other plants, with the exception of the lupine, all parts are poisonous to stock. Both the tall and the low hirkspu r lose their po0isonous finalities after blossoming. 'Thie illustrations in the circular are accompanied by brief' descriiptions of the plant which should enable the stock mien to identify them readily. The symptoms peculiar to each I ni of poisoning and the remedy, wa there is one, are also set forth. "Puck" Powell, Chas. 1)avi v . Ed.

While not entirely unexpected, the death of Miss Marion Survant in Great Falls last evening has immeas urably saddened the many friends of the family both in Malta and all over the state.

However, complications 'set in, and finally took away one of the sweetest little gitls ever known in Malta, to the irte arable loss of her family and friends.

She was dearly loved by her ebhoolmates and her countless friends, and will be universally mourned by the whole community. Her sftny disposition had endeared her to ,o many, that immeasurable sympathy goes out to her family, of wvblcli, eside her parents, Miss Anna Lee atid' Burner Survant survive, her. The ;rmains will be brought back to Mafta on Friday, but as yet no definiteiarrangements for the funeral have been made. Resolutions.
