The regnlar monthly report nld roll of honor were received too late for pub lioution in this issue. They will ap pear Friday. The monthly report' for September shows the following items of interest: The enrollnet,. 504, is 102- gr. than that of last yen and IjTjilore than Sept. 1897. The 3ver daily attend once is 88 more at*f'l1st year. The per cent of uttendo e is one-tenth of one per cent less than Sept. 181)8. The gain per cent of enrollment over last year is 25, or an increase of one-fourth. Some excellent work in drawing and preserving autumn leaves is being doue in several rooms. ) The teachers are making more use of the fine set of relief maps than they did last year. A set of supplementary history read ers and a set of nature readers are fnr nished each room. The grade ibraries been dis tributed and ae l being used in their respectiv mns. Each teacher keeps ouareftrecord of the books taken by every pupil. Among the various excellent school journals taken by our teachers ark the following: North Western Monthly, Popular Edunator, Primary Education, The School Review, N. Y. School Journal, The Normal Instructor, The Teachers' Institute, The Child Study Monthly. The boys of the eighth graide and high school have purchased a football. Miles City has challenged them for a game. Foot-ball is rough sport, but it seems to develop a spirit of school patriotism unequaled by any other game. Under the direction of a care ful "coach" It teaches boys how to be come strong and healthy. One of the first things the football player is taught is the fact that he cannot devel op his muscles unless he refrains from the use of tobacco. A cigarette smoker is useless among a lot of hearty boys who are striving their utmost. It is such fellows who, by deceiving the "coach" and after gaining a place on the team, are injured through their own weakness that gives the game a bad record. And now cometh the girls of the high school, with the very reasonable inquiry why they are not furnished an opportunity for physical exercise. If suitable arrangements can be made, they will be permitted to introduce the fascinating game of basket ball, which has of late years proved itself so popu lar in girls' colleges and gymnasiums. The Longfellow rhetorical society of the high school will give their first programme at their room in the high I school building Friday. Oct. 18 at 2 o'clock. All friends and patrons of the high school are cordially invited.

He put up a cash bond of @84.8 for his appearano yesterday morning, but failed to sbov up and the judge declared his bond for feited. Justice of the Peace Fraser is out o town and Justice Ke!ly has been doing the entire justice business the past few days. A very queer case came before Justic Kelly Saturday. Friday after noon the police arrested James Whalen who was charged with having held un and robbed a man named Reilly When arrested Whalen denied having done so and said that it was just tin other way-Reilly had robbed him anu he had then held Reilly up to get hie money back, which amounted to about *. $80.

Traffic in girls and rescue missions is the startling subject on which Mrs. Charlton Edholm of The Temple, Chi. cago, will speak to the people of Bill ings for several days. Mrs. Edholm spoke in the Methodist church *two weeks ago Sunday night and those who heard her were thrilled with horror as she portrayed the snares by which one thousand girls per week are trapped into houses of infamy. She proves be yond a doubt that there is an organized traffic in young innocent girls, and her work is largely preventive to tell fath ers and mothers and teachers that their girls are liable to be snared into these vile dens. Being "forewarned is fore armed," and girls being warned of their danger can save themselves, Wherever Mrs. Edholm has spoken the audience has shown the deepest in terest in the great work of saving the girls, and to that end many have joined the ,W. C. T. U.-Chicago Evening Post. Mrs. Edholm speaks tonight at the M. E. church, Wednesday and Friday nights at the court house and Thursday night will conduct the prayer service at the Congregational church. All services are free and everybody cordial ly invited. . HOQUIECT FOR IIILLINS., State Newspapers Speak of the Pro.perlty of tile Magic City. Anaconda Recorder: Billings is said to be the liveliest town in the state at present As an evidence of this, it is pointed out that it supports two variety theaters, However Billings is rapidly going to the front. The new coal min iug camps, as well as some of the older nes, are tributary to Billings. A pro. tifl livestock and farn;ning country sur ^ounds her and she has every cause to ook forward to a great future. Livingston Post: It has become the ashiou lately for the towns of Mon ana to exploit their superiority in rain phrase and arrogate to themselves 11i the blessings that bounteous nature and benign providence have to bestow. Billings has done this. Acting on the )ld proverb which says that "he who lath a horn and bloweth it not, verily she same shall not be tooted," the WIagio city has been heralded abroad by ier excellent press and enterprising itizens as the place where fortune miles with perennial pleasantness. Billings today is famed abroad, her sal estate is rising and in the midst of in alkali flat has arisen a city which is ip-to-date in more particulars than one. :t is easily' done. It must be when nch a boom as Billings seems to be en oying can be made out of the raw ma erial the boomers there had to start with. Here in Livingston and the rountry are opportunities whioh need inly to be seen to be appreciated, em. raced and enjoyed. It is a grand com nonwealth-a splendid section of a plendid state. It is bound to come to be front. A year hence will see a "reat change. It is time to prepare. Otis cabled the following from Ma. ila Saturday: The transport Ohio, wltb three officers and forty-nine men if the Nevada cavalry, and two ban. Ired and fifteen disoharged men, sailed _eaterday. via Hongkong and Guam. Ewo men of the Nevada cavalry are in be hands of the Ianrgente.

A W\esten Union bulletin as 3:30 this afternoon, says: "Both bouts practically becalmed about three miles otff the highlands, the same distance from l.ightship. Neither can finish in side tihe time limit. The Shamrock is off the Oolumlnbinl' weather bow. abolt 100 yards away. Hi,oeiul T'elegram to The (nazette. New York, Oct. :3.-The tliirty-mile international yacht race, between the (olunihin and the Shamrock, starts at 11 o'clock this morning. The course is from Sandy Hook lightship, to wiud ward or lhewarn, according to the di rcction of the breeze. The second race will be triangular, ten miles to the leg, and will be sailed on Thursday, and the contests will alternate every day until one of the yachts win three out of five races. J. Pierpont Morgan and U. Oliver Iselin own the Columbia, and the Shamrock, the English boat, is owned by Sir Thomas Lipton. "MINTAKEN WILL HAPPEN." SeNe ThisIh Great Comedy qt the Opera House TOlmorrow Eveninw. In "Mistakes Will Happen," which comes to the opera house tomorrow night, under the direction of Jacob Litt, the theater.going public will be treated to' a distinct novelty, and novel ties in farcial comedies are rare. The second act of the comedy takes place in the coach house of a supposedly wealthy gentleman, and both the ground floor and the hay loft are shown. The loft is as practical as the stage itself and is utilized with as muobh freedom by the actors. The set is so heavy that it takes over *an hour to set up, for it is necessary to build a solid bridge with a thirty-foot span in order that the loft may be made solid enough to be utillh ed, for at one time there are five people running about it. The entire produoc tion is said to be very handsome and the company which is presenting the play is said to be an exceptionally strong one. It is headed by Charles Dickson. A GOOD oLEAN-UP. E. H. Cowles Makes $15,000 in Three Years in His Gold Diggings. Last Friday E. H. Cowles came to town and brought with him $15,000 in gold, which he deposited in the local banks, says the Livingston Post. Mr. Cowles was more than jubilant over his good fortune and in an interview with a Post man he didn't conceal the secondary cause of his happiness. "Why say, do you keow when I went out into the Boulder country the peo ple here gave me he horse laugh. Some of them said all kinds of things. I just pitied them and went out to that country to work those hills for all they Linton Clothing Co. A CLrOTHING AND F iNISHINGS Everything of, the Latest and Nobbiest for Men's Wear.

Of course it took stick-to- ativeness to keep at it day after day and find that she wasn't panning out. But I knew the mineral was there, and if you don't believe me and you do believe that money talks come out to that country and see for yourself and listen to it talk. I expect to see Cowles' jump from its present population of less than a hundred to 1,000 in less than a year," said Mr. Cowles as he hurriedly ex cused himself. It is said that 1,000 claims have been staked out at the camp during the past two weeks. Cowles is about twenty-three miles southeast of here and if indications count for anything the little camp has a bright future. MR. HOGE'S GIFT. P'lldl Oa' Htalf tlhe Methodist Chlurch Debt Before L.eaviJnl, Before leaving Montana W. L. Hoge, the pioneer and banker who has done so much for the upbnildin of the Methodist chu b in this de a donation to the Bhurch 1,465 to t help pay off the d rl h as been out standing for two ars, says the Anan conda Standard. This leaves a similar amount yet to be raised. At the quar terly conference of the church held Monday this donation was reported. Last Sunday the quarterly meeting of the church took place, the first quar terly meeting of the year and the first appearance of Hev. Jacob Mills as pre siding elder of the district. Mr. Mills is well known throughout the state, having lived in Montana for seventeen or eighteen years, where hb.WlW accom plished great goo, ot by his pul pit ministrations re life, but also by his gifts in va s places. An ex ception to the rule, Mr. Mills is a man of considerable wealth, which he claims belongs not to him, but to the Lord, while he is the steward to use the very best advantage. Givi erefore, one-tenth or more uf flacome each year, he has been cngfiLed to pat thou sands of dollars into needy hands. Churches have been built, pqrsonages paid for, preachers assisted'and the Montana Weslyan university largely helped through his benovalence. GENERAL STATE NSIWS. The seventh annual meeting of the Montana Baptist association, that was to have been held in Great Falls last week, but was changed to Helena 'on account of the smallpox scare' in the former city, convened in Helena PFi day. The Montana Presbyterian Synod was held in Bozeman last week. George M. Roe, a former employe at the Warm Springs insane asylum, who left Montana last winter about the time of the robbery of the postoflice and depot at Warm Springs, was arrested in Lincoln, Neb., and brought back to be tried by the United States court, was acquitted at Butte Friday., The jury reached a verdict in a few minutes. The defense 'was an alibi, in which time was the matter of chief import anoe. The jury seems to have consid ered the alibi established. The city board of health in Great Falls appears to have at last arisen to the situation that confronts the city with an epidemic ot smallpox and has adopted measures in keeping with the gravity of the situation. All public places have been closed with the ex ception of hotels and saloons. The press of the city qt last admits there is smallpox in the city and plenty of it, after industriously trying to conceal the matter from the public. There are about thirty cases at present in the pest house, but the epidemic is now under control of the authorities.
