CLASS DAY PROGRAMME.
Splendid Literary and 4.usical Enter tainment by the Seniors. From Thursday's Daily Gazette. Next in importance to the graduat ing exercises proper, which will be given Friday evening, the event of commencement week was the class day programme rendered at the opera house, last evening. The decorations were ornate and striking, the juniors, as is the cus tom, acting as attendants to their 'scholastic superiors, and attending to all these matters of detail intend ed to pave the way for a successful exhibition by the seniors. Hence the decorations were a part of the junior's work, and right well they performed it. The right proscenium box was dressed in the colors or the juniors, canary and blue, while the one on the left bore the insignia of the seniors in scarlet and cream. Fleecy bunting, budding roses, smilax and snowballs were all used with pleasing and well harmoni ed effect in the drapings. A handsom4 stage setting, also, was en hanced oy the artistic placing of palms and potted plants, and the brilliant costumes worn by the members of the class made a pretty setting for so pleasing a picture., The programme was all that could have been expected or desired. The opening number, "Apollo," by the high school orchestra, was most effectively rendered for so young a party of mu sicians. "The Death Bed of Benedict Arnold," was read with tragic effect by Mr. Ed. Penrod, and the high school chorus distinguisheu itself in the rendition of the "Fairyland. Waltz." The class history, by Miss Jessie Itaiisback was full of bright witticisms, as well as some very touching points, and was warmly re ceived by the audience. The arill of the "Shaking Quakers," by the primary class, was one of the taking features of the programme, the little folks appearing in full Quaker costume. The address to the tenth grade by Miss Ellen Stebbins, and the response to 'the same by Mr. George Baker were exceeaingly able efforts, while the "Historical Burlesque," by Lee Millis, brought down the house. The "Gypsy Chorus," quite a heavy vocal production, was well given by a double quartette, and was followed by the class prophecy by Miss Mabel Salsbury. The horoscope of each mem ber of the class was read and as the station or position of the future of each individual was announced a pan tomime illustration was given of the same-living pictures as it were-on a classical scale. The presentation of the rhetorical diplomas was fol lowed by another excellent song, "Revel of the Leaves," by the double quartette, and then came the "Crema tion of Geometry." The entire class participated in this event with. much gusto, so much indeed, that one would readily believe that everyone of them was happy to see geometry and all other intricate mathematical studies go up in smoke. The cremators ap peared in full Indian costume, and when old "Geom" had been complete ly incinerated they even did not do him the honor to reverently gather up his ashes. The evening's enjoyable programme closed with another selection by the orchestra, and the graduates and their friends returned home, the for mer to prepare for the great event of their lives which is to come Friday avrmninc Mr. W,. S. Whedon, cashier of the First National bank of Winterset, Iowa, in a recent letter gives some experience with a carpenter in his employ, that will be of value to other mechanics. He says: "I had a cer penter working for me who was oblig ed to stop work for several days on account of being troubled with di arrhoea. I mentioned to him that I had been similarly troubled and that Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Di arrhoea Remedy had curred me. He bought a bottle of it from the drug gist here and informed me that one dose cured him, and he is again at work." For sale by Chapple Drug Co. WOOL OUTLOOK GOOD. Believed that Montana Product Will Bring Fifteen Cents. From Thursday's Daily Gazette. Billings has the credit of having recorded the first wool sale of the season for Montana, reported in yes terday's .azette. The price paid was considered very low by many, but when the quality and size of the 5clip are taken into account it is not to be wondered at. The buyer says it was far from being a first-class article, there being some burrs among it, and besides was a scraggly lot, which east ern buyers would not care to have touched, except to make up a ship: ment. Wool men heteabouts are not inclined to take the price as a criter ion of what will be paid for Montana wool on this market this season, and especially in view of the fact that Wyoming wool, which is always con sidered several points lower than that of Montana, brought on an average of 11 cents and some clips sold as high as 1l cents. Montana wool should bring from two to three cents better price than any paid in Wyo ming, waile some clips will go even higher than that. The outlook for an advance in price is said to be good ana wool raisers have not given up hopes of realizing a fair profit on their investments. The winter anu spring seasons were not hard on the sheep and the losses were very small compared with those of past seasons, and the lamb crop showed up a .arge increase. All these things taken into account, the growers can afford to take a little less for their product than what they could a year ago. PLAYED OUT.

Yesterday was a cool day on the outside, but rather warm in police court, where a grist of violaters of the peace and dignity of the city were given to understand that they must mend their ways. James Morgan. an old ortender, John Coleman, Wm. Ry an and H. McKey were charged with being without visible means of sup port or in other words vagrants. Mor gan was given a chance to assist in baeutifying the streets to the extent of ten days' work while the other three were sentenced to five days each. All are now on the streets under the street commissioner. Frank Wilson and Mat Brown were each fined $5 for being drunk and disturbing the peace. They paid and felt lucky that they had been left off so easily. John Downing Wm. Doe and John Doe were arrested Tues: day night for disturbing the peace. The men gave cash bonds of $5 each for their appearance yesterday but they failed to show up at the proper time and their bon-s were forfeited. A gentleman well known in the city complained to tne police yesterday that he had been robbed of $40 the night before by Irene Wilson while visiting one of the nouses in the "bad lands" sistrict. He was questioned as to the exact condition of affairs under which he claimed to have been robbed and it transpired that he had loaned the woman some money and further there was no cause to justify the is suance of a warrant for her arrest. For nearly a year the city officials have been trying to oust Frank Meyer, who conducts a fruit and confection ary booth on the corner of Montana avenue and Twenty-seventh street, and at the meeting of the council Tuesday night the city attorney an nounced that action would be taken the next day. Yesterday Mr. John ston swore to a complaint against Mr. Meyer, charging him with main taining a nuisance. Mr. Meyer was arrested and given until 3 o'clock in the afternoon to appear in police court and answer the charge. He was promptly on time, and after hearing the reading of the complaint took the time allowed by law in which to plead, which will be today at 3 o'clock. Mr. Meyer secured the services of an attorney and intends to fight the action of the city. He claims that he is maintaining no nuisance, and that he has as much right to have his booth upon the edge of the street as have several firms to maintain store room upon the public tnorough fares. The outcome of the case will he anxiously awaiteu oy the people. Ira D. Reckard, Duncombe, Iowa, writes: "My little boy scalded his leg from the knee to the ankle. I used Banner Salve immediately and in three weeks' time it was almost entirely healed. I want to recom mend it to every family and advise them to keep Banner Salve on hand, as it is a sure remedy for scalds or any sores." Holmes & Calhoun. FIRST WOOL SALE. Five Thousand Pounds bold at Eight Cents Per Pound. rom Wednesday's Daily Gazette. The first wool sale of the season so far recorded in Montana was made in this city yesterday afternoon, when Henry Spencer of Gebo, sold to J. L. Carey & Cot, through J. L. Carey, 5,000 pounds of Montana wool at a cents per pounu. Mr. Spencer ar rived here yesterday with his clip. He was of the opinion that wool is to bring a small figure this. season and not wishing to make another trip to the city, owing to tie small size of his clip he deemed it more advis able to sell at a figure which seems' rather small. The buyers are sheep men of this section, but expect to do a little buying during the season. A Good Cough Medicine. It speaks well for Chamberlain's Cough Remedy when druggists use it in their own families in preference to any other. "I have sold Chamber lain's Cough Remedy for the past five years with complete satisfaction to myself and customers," says Druggist J. Goldsmith, Van Etten, N. Y. "I have always used it in my own fam ily both for ordinary coughs and colds and for the cough following la grippe, and find it very efficacious." For sale by Chapple Drug Co. MONTANA EXCELS. Paul McCormick Returrs From South ern Trip. Paul McCormick reached home yes terday morning from the south, where he spent the past several weeks buy ing and shipping cattle north for the Custer Cattle company to its range on the Crow reservation. He says, talk as they will, there is no country yet that beats Montana, and especial ly the Yellowstone valley. In all his travels over the south he did not see a river that could compare with the Yellowstone in the matter of running water. Mr. McCormick is firm in the belief that this section of the country is the garden spot of the earth, and is always glad to get back after being away, if only for a short time. The cattle outlook has never been very discouraging to Mr. McCormick, as is evident from the fact that he started to buy in the month of March, when the condition of the range was anything but promising. He says those stockmen who waited until they were assured there would be rain and grass are now flying south as rapidly as the ckrs will carry them, so as to buy and get their stock on the range before the summer is too far advanced. The Custer Cattle company has al ready received a number of its ship ments and the balance will arrive dur ing the next few days. A. O. Blanchard, West Bangor, N. Y., says: "I have been troubled with kidney disease for the last five years. Have doctored with several physi cians and 1 got no relief until I used two bottles of Poley's Kioney Cure."

"At one time I suffered from a se vere sprain of the ankle," says Geo. E. Cary, editor of the Guide, Wash ington, Va. "After using several well recommended medicines without suc cess, I tried Chamberlain's Pain Balm and am pleased to say that relief came as soon as I began its use and a complete cure speedily followed.'

New York, June 5.-Taking advan tage of the fact that the guards at the Atchison-Harden handkerchief factory at Passaic, N. J., had been reduced to two men, the girl strik ers made a fierce attack today on those who had taken their places in the factory. Showers of stones were thrown at the new girls as they were going to work and the factory windows were pelted. The police charged the rioters but were driven off and sent for reinforcements. When these came up three of the girls were arrested, and with a man who interfered in their behalf, were started toward the police station in a wagon. A crowd of 300 followed, howling and stoning the police. At the station the mob again tried to rescue the prisoners and was only driven off by the fire company turning a stream from the engine on it. The prisoners were sub sequently fined $5 each. Edward Huss, a well known busi ness man of Salisbury, Mo., writes: "I wish to say for the benefit of others, that I was a sufferer from lumbago and kidney trouble, and all the remedies I took gave me no re lief.
