It will interest and amuse Montana people for several weeks to read what the eastern papers have to say about "Calamity" Jane, the notorious Mon tana character, who has been taken east by Mrs. Josephine Winnifield Brake, a newspaper writer in search of a sensation, who came to Montana recently at the expense of an eastern "yellow" journal and induced "Calam ity" to accompany her east with the object of writing up her western ca reer and making a sensation out of a woman who has few of the instincts of the finer sex and whose departure from the state will not cause anything like an aching void in the communities in which she has lived Mrs. Brake and her strange companion were at the Ryan hotel in St. Paul for a day. The industrious reporters on the Twin Cities papers, aided by the art ists, gave the couple a good send-off during their stay in the Saintly city. It would seem more reasonable that she would take up her residence in some well located dime museum, says the St. Paul Dispatch. As a side show she would prove a drawing attraction. Mrs. Brake registered for both, and her handwriting shows plainly that she was more or less agitated and nervous. She evidently had her hands full on the trip from Montana, by the time she reached St. Paul. Jane's associations and her ways have been enough to make her a rather trying person for a traveling companion. She gets her name of "Calamity" Jane from a faculty she has had of producing a ruction at any time and place and on short notice. Jane has one recommendation, and that counts for considerable. She is perfectly willing to be what she seems to be and seem what she is. Mrs. Brake calls that characteristic by a more complimentary name, and told the Dispatch that -Jane was honesty personified. She has .been obedient, also. She never takes a drink of whiskey with out asking Mrs. Brake's permission first. She is no stranger to corn juice and about four times a day she im bibes, after giving notice of her in tention. So as to have everything handy, she, keeps a big black bottle with her belongings. She smokes, too, and long, black cigars at that. When seen at the Ryan last evening she was out of cigars, as Mrs. Brake happened to mention. The scribe at once handed her a long, shady-looking Pittsburg stogie, but she did not smoke it at once. She hid it- in her shirtwaist, evidently a little ashamed of her fond ness for such an infeminine article. She is not strictly feminine in other ways, for she worebuckskin trousers too much of the time to be acquaifited with up-to-date feminine apparel. So when Mrs. Brake fitted her out with a dozen ready-made shirtwaists, she chose a time when she was alone to array herself in her new-found splen dor. A box of face powder was near at the time, and she sprinkled that: around in promiscuous fashion on her bright blue shirtwaist, black skirt, face and hair. She was a sight to be hold when Mrs. Brake opened the fodl and surveyed her. Jane has a horror of reporters, and showed a hand satchel, with the end all battered up. She had used it on a Montana newspaper man who pub lished some statements about he- not strictly true. "He didn't see me, and I got a good crack at him. His head was rut con siderable," said she. Jane told about her experiences in dthe early days in the west. Her par ents took he rto Montana, and both died soon afterwards. She fell into the hands of an old woman from whom she ran away, attaching herself to an army post. As, she grew older, she took up the life of a soldier. She killed Indians, and they nearly killed her half a dozen times. She saved the life of Captain Egan. and fought with Custer, Bill Cody and nearly all the old Indian fighters. CHRISTIAN SCIENCE LECTURE. Good Audience Listens to Judge Ew ing's Discourse. Notwithstanding the oppressive heat of last evening the opera house was well filled with an intelligent class of people, who were there for the purpose of listening to a lecture on Christian Science by Judge W. G. Ewing of Chicago, Judge Ewing is an elderly gentle man, and for more than 30 years has been a leading attorney of the Illi nois bar. He proved to be a most interesting and entertaining talker on the subject of Ohrisflan Science. His preface was in the nature of pointing out the vagaries of our foretatt}ers in their beliefs and practices, not onjy along religious but economical lines, illustrating, thereby, the advancement ot thought within the last third of a century. it introducing the sub ject of C.Qbiptlan fease_ he uul4 4 ..Hair Brushes.

He only desired to speak to those who felt there was more balm and greater balm in Gilead than they had yeti been permitted to apply. He outlined the beliefs in which the scientists 'and the older churches were fully in accord with each other, God the father being the fountain head of one as well as the other. The scientists did not come proclaiming a new God, nor a new bible, but they simply accorded the Creator more power than did the older faiths. de then went into minute detail concern ing the tenets of the church of scientists, all of which was very in teresting to his hearers.

"To most people the late General George Cooke, the Indian figher, was a solemn man but he loved a practi cal joke," said Colonel "Joe" Iler to a New York Tribune man. "Back in the '70's, soon after he was made a brig adier general and stationed at Omaha, General Cooke organized a wildcat hunting party among 4 lot of us, and ont moonlight night we started across the prairie from Omaha to the fort The plan was to sleep at the fort and at daybreak start for the wildcats. After we were all fast asleep General Crook came down stairs without any shoes on and took from our rifles the ball cartridges, replacing them with blanks. On the way to the woods the general indicated the order in which he wished us to fire on the first wild cat in case we should tree the beast. We had hardly reached the woods be fore General Cook arose in his sad dle and said: "'By thunder, boys, here's a cat right in the crotch of that fir! Drop off your wagon and bag him!' "We were on the ground in a twink lings; and in less time than it takes to tell it we were blazing away at a mon strous big wildcat which was hugging the limb of the tree. The cat never stirred-as the successive shots were fired and the hunters looked at one another with open-mouthed astonish ment. We looked around for General Cook and found him behind a stump laughing away to beat the band. At once it flashed on us that we had been hoaxed. The general had just straight eped up and was begining to explain the joke when the driver, a hired man at the fort, pulled from under a blan ket in the wagon a double-barreled shotgun, loaded with buckshot. 'Ihe general didn't see him fire, but he turned around just in time to see tufts of hair and fur fly- from the wildcat as it dropped from the tree "Off went the general in another fit of laughter But by this time the laugh was on himself, for the hired man had poured both charges of buck shot into a beautiful stuffed wildcat, completely ruining it, and the general subsequently paid the saloon keeper from whom he had borrowed it about $15 All that Cook said was: "'Boys, it was worth a hundred dol lars apiece to see five good marksmen miss a wildcat in broad daylight at thirty paces.'"
