The funeral service for Jessie Marion Survant was held at her late 1j home on Sunday afternoon last at D onle o'clock and was attended by a w large concourse of friends, neighbors, hi school-mates and associates residing tl in this city and its vicinity. The p7 home was filled to overflowing, while bi ;Cores of people, consisting of men, *t ;Women and children, stood in the a, oututde yard mingling their tears and p; ,,tripathy with each other, for oi ",itten" as many of them had always c1 called her, was a general favorite fc among them all. The expressions of ti sorrow were so universal that to el record their far-reaching effect and tl influence would be impossible. C1 Many Saco, Hinsdale, Glasgow and it Dodson people were also present at lii the funeral, coming by train Saturday a night and by auto Sunday morning. ti The beautiful and impressive Episco- ii pal church burial office was said by '1' the Rev. Leonard J. Christler, who it afterwards delivered a short and a simple address, a brief of which is fi given elsewhere in these columns. p A quartette consisting of Messrs. t Bruen and Blumenthal, Mrs. Secrest t and Mrs. Bruen, with Miss Winnie c Partridge at the piano rendered three a hymns, "Asleep in Jesus, lilessed v sleep", "Cod Will Take Care of You," 1l and Sunbeam." The bearers were, William McLellan, Lee C. Edwards, Harry ('os0er, George L. Partridge, I 1-ermain Robinson and B. H. Koke. I Jessie Marion Survant was born in Malta. March 20, 1()01, and would have been 14 years old her next birth lay. She was a student in the eighth 1 grade of the Malta high School and perhaps in no sphere had she warmer friends or more loved associates than in her school life. When the news 1 en e from Creat Falls, where she had been a patient in the Deaconess hospital for twenty days, that Marion h ,,d died, the entire school was in the shadow u1 f grief. Early in November Marion was tale ".o Ole r ospital at Great Falls fiwere shie tindlerweut an operation for appendicitis. She rallied most I wonderfully from the effect of the 1 operation, and the hope was enter tailned that she would entirely recover. At the hospital she had the best nursing as well as medicat care, 1)r.i George Clay and Dr. Furgeson gave the best that was in them, but in spite of all the extraordinary efforts of medical care and nursing to w'in the battle with death, it was ordered otherwise, and finally the end came early Thursday morning last. Her body was brought to Malta Friday morning on No. 2 train, accompanied by her parents, and her rector the Rev. L. J. Christler. At the station when the train arrived at 5.20 a.111., there were many of the old-time families and friends of the family to express their sympathy and to ac company then to the saddened ionme. Long before the day of the funeral the floral tributes that camne were p irofuse and beautiful. Never in the I history of Malta, so far as any one can remneniber, has there been on a similar occasion such aii offering of flowers, comning from mien, women and children in all walks of life. At the cemetery where the coinuiittal I service was said a lnd where these beautiful ohiwers literally platted a crown above the grave, the entire citizenship of the city gathered to honor the memory of "Kitten." She was a conimunicant of St. 'Mary's Episcopal church, and an ever active niemnber of its Sunday school, w1heuc she will be greatly missed. she is suirvived lby icr parcints, Mr. miii Mrs .101on Snrvauit, a sister, Miss A mid Lii Siryaiit ainid a birotlher, thu ncr Sinr'aiit. Gets Seven Years. Al Thinker, an Inliain youth still in his teens, was placed on trial for his life ii the Federal court at IIelenia on the charge of murdering Jerome (Iainbler on the Fort Blelknap reservea tion oli the 18th of October last. 'The Indian had been drinking, Giamblers gun had been taken fro ii him by a member of the party anld came into the possession of Thinker. ( iambler demanded his gun back aid T'1hinker denied having it. U am11bler struck him on thie nose, whereupon TIhinker drew his gun and tired hreaI shots at (?ambihler, all of which I iiik effeet.

The editor of this paper returned Monday from a ten days' stay at the Deaconess H ospital at Glasgow where we had our appendix removed. We had a very good opportunity to study the workings of that institution in a measure anid do not feel that it would be out of place to give our readers some idea of the work done there and the cate and attention given to patients. The week we were operated on the two leading; surgeons of that city, Drs. Hoyt and Smith, had per formed something like twenty opera tions and where they have a fighting chance they are pretty sure to pull them through. They are both ex ceptionally good men and deserve much credit for their work. The hospital is a Methodist institution and upon entering, a large motto over the door, "For God and Humanity" is the first thing that greets one. The first time we noticed it we gave it but little or no thought, but after several days in the institution and finding out that those in charge were paid but the meager sum of from six to ten dollars per month, according to time of service, we came to the conclusion that they were working as the motto stated and were getting very poorly paid by the latter. The hospital is in charge of D aconess Miss Clark, and with her as assist ants are eight other young ladies who have chosen to devote their lives to help those who are sick or afflicted. i itl the hospital crowded as it is and the nurses worked night and day there is no time that they do not respond to lend any assistance in their power. They have surely taken up a great work and are deserving of the best the people of the county can give them, and Clasgoow, as well as Valley county, should feel proud of the institution a111( its comlpetent force of nurses, and never pass tip an o01portuoity to assist then in their noble work. s The Hachelor Ciris' Club will give a play eni e,',,l "'ilie Spinsters Con vention" at the Princess on Decem t ber 4th. The vonno- ladies are working e hard to mike this play a success, and have decided to give t he proceeds to the Public School library. The cast numnbers about twenty and some t pleasant surprises are in store for the audience when the "old maids" e are transformed by the wonderful remodeloscope, into singers, pianists, u fairies, bntterliies, dancers, etc. s After the play a (hance will be given, n , and a pleasant evening is assured all who attend.
