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.

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

Under an opinion given by Attorney
( eneral Kelly to State Veterinaria I
Jiutier. the latter has mnder the state
laws full ntutiiority to slaugliter
animnals which lie nay ind are
attilicted with loot and mouth disease,
if the hederil authorities do not
assume jurisdiction. The question
arose in connection with cattle held
I in quarantine in Dawson county.
This stock was shipped from the east
and when Dr. Butler found the
animaIs were diseased lie hiad the
shipimetut stopped and the train re
turned to Glendive. There the catLta
were unloaded and later, tnder t: ,
joint authority of the federal iusp-:
tor and state authorities, three cst'na
of the anidmals founld to lie acton~
affected were ki lied and the otheli
put in qitarantine, sinea it has hlen
ascertained that all the animals a
infected, by reason of exposure p.
