Made a Half Mile in 41 Seconds
Five Miles in 7 Minutes
cnd 36 Seconds.
Newport, Aug. 30-The automobilt
races held by the National associa
tion were run off on the half mile
track at Aquidneck park this after
noon. Mr. Wm. K. Vanderbilt, Jr.,
the president of the organization, was
.the star performer of the day. He
drove his own machine in four races,
made the best time on the track, and
won the championship cup. Fully
7,000 people went to the track. It
was a notable society function and
naerly every prominent family living
here was represented.
In all there were 16 races, but the
one attracting most interest and
arousing the greatest excitement was
that between young Vanderbilt in his
new German racer of 35 horse power,
and Foxhall Keene, in a machine of
fully 60 horse power. Each had won
preliminary heats. Vanderbilt quick
ly shot ahead at the start and at the
end of the first lap was an eighth of
a mile ahead. Aided by a very clev
er chaffeur, who at the sharp turns
took every chance and leaned far in
with only a small strap to support
him. Vanderbilt added to his lead in
the first mile. He was 56 seconds at
the half and only one minute and 36
seconds at the mile. His third half
mile was made in--41 seconds, the
fastest lap of the meeting. Half way
over the course he had Keene surely
beaten barring accident, and finished
the race in fine form, a winner in
7:36, the fastest five miles of the day.

Sure Death to Wolves and Coyotes

The Only Poison Ilade that Never Fails to Kill
Read the Followin¢ Recommendations from Leading Montana Stockmen.
Miles City, Mont., Feby. 12, 1901.
F. B. Dennie & Co., Minneapolis, Minn.
Gentlemen: I have heard so many
of the large stock-growers who are
using your brand of strychnine or wolf
poison speak of it so highly, and after
careful inquiry satisfying myself that
it is the only poison on the market
worthy of recommendation, I wish to
ask you if you will not thoroughly
advertise it that all will use the same
and soon do away with this greatest
of all pests to stockgrowers.
You should have a big sale for it I
am fully convinced, and I am positive
if you will make its superior quality
known all will use it. I have heard
enough to satisfy me that it is worthy
of endorsement by' all who are inter
ested in the welfare of the stock
grower. Your respectively
Stock Inspector for Montana.
Billings; Montana, Feby. 14, 1901.
F. B. Dennie & Co., Minneapolis, Minn.
Gentlemen: After using a large
quantity of your strychnine or wolf
qoison, and giving it a most thorough
test we are pleased to say that it is
the best and cheapest poison we have
ever used, and we hope that you will
make its true worth known to all
Experience teaches us that it is
cheaper to use the best poison, as this
has proven itself to be at any price,
than the ordinary grades as a gift.

Brigadier General Ludlow Yields to
Dread Disease.
New York, Aug: 30-Brigadier Gen
eral WWm. Ludlow, U. S. A., died today
of consumption at Convent. N. J.
Washington, Aug. 30.-General Lud
low was one of the best known offit
cers in the army. He entered the mil.
itary academy from New York in
1860 and graduating before the close
of the civil war, entered the corps of
engineers. He rendered conspicuous
services in the south, for which he
was brevetted lieutenant colonel
Many important works of coast de
fense and river and harbor improve
ments have been under his charge and
he was a member of the Nicaragua
canal commission which made a re
port on that project just before the
present commission was appointed. In
May, 1898, he was made a brigadier
general of volunteers and took an im
portant part in the operations around
Santiago. He was promoted to be
major general of volunteers in recog
nition of his services.
Upon the rearrangement of the vol
unteer officers after the close of the
Spanish war, he became brigadier
general of the volunteers and retained
that position until appointed a brig
adier general in the regular army last
January. While he was serving as
brigadier general of the volunteeris,
he was military governor of Havana
and instituted many reforms in the
government of that city.

We will continue to use this brand.
as we believe it will do more to ex
terminate the wolf than any ether
method known to us and we hope that
all others will do the same.
Very respectfully yours,
By Paul McCormick, Pres.
Fort McGinnis, Mont., Sept.20,1900.
F. B. Dennie & Co., Minneapolis, Minn.
Gentlemen: I herewith enclose
check for $195.00 for 40oz. strychnine
which I purchased from your agent,
F. D. Derby, this spring.
After giving the same a most
thorough test I am pleased to say
that it is the best strychnine that I
have seen in twenty years. My men
and wolfers nave had most excellent
results by constant use of the same.
Mr. Lindsey, one of my men got 21
wolves with three bottles and their
carcasses were found all the way
from six to one hundred feet from the
I heartily recommend this strychnine
to all stockmen, and hope that you will
push the sale of it, as the wolf is one
of the greatest pests to the stock
grower, and for me I have found this
a most practical method of ridding my
range of the same, and if it is good for
me it must be good for others. Next
year I expect to place an order for a
larger quantity. Very respectfully,
Would Prefer Charges Against Any
Naval Officer Who Assert
ed He Was.
New York, Aug. 30-Admiral John
C. Watson is qnoted in the World as
having said in the course of a private
conversation in Washington:
"If any naval officer asserts that
Admiral Schley is a coward and the
fact omes to my knowledge I will see
that the delinquent has a chance to
vindicate his opinion before a court
martial. I will prefer charges against
such an offender myself."
The remarks, according to the
World's correspondent, were brought
out as a result of the reiterating of
some of the charges brought against
Rear Admiral Schley.
Admiral Howison Denies Authenicity
of Interview.
Washington, Aug. 30-Acting Sec
reary Hacett has made public a .let
ter received from Admiral Howison,
dated Yonkers, N. Y., August 24, de
nying the authenticity of the inter
view attributed" to him in which he
is made to comment adversely on
Admiral Schley. The cating secre
tary has therefore continued Admiral
Howison as a member of the Schley
court of inquiry, leaving the court it
self to determine any further question
as to his competency.
Schley's Counsel Not Satisfied.
Washington, Aug. 30.-The corres
pondence was sent to'Admiral Schley

Later in the day the following an
nouncement was made:

made public today." The lawyers hold
that it isa ot a comprehensive denial
of the statements attributed to Ad
Billings, Mont., Feby. 15, 1901.
F. B. Dennie & Co., Wholesale Grocers,
Minneapolis, Minn.
Dear Sirs: After using forty ounces
of your strychnine or wolf poison this
fall and winter, we take great pleasure
in saying that it is the best poison we
have ever seen- or used. We get more
wolves and coyotes with an ounce
bottle of it than we generally get with
a dozen of the common grades.
When all stockmen realize that, this
poison is all that is claimed for it,
and use it as we will continue to do,
we will then have less wolves to con
tend with. We hope you will advertise
this poison and push the sale of it as
the wolf question is a problem which
we all have to deal with alike.
Yours, respectfully,
Foreman, Hysham Cattle Company.
Shawmut, Mont., Nov.- 2, 1900.
F. B. Dennie & Co., Minneapolis, Minn.
Gentlemen: Enclosed please find
check for strychnine bought of your
agent this spring. We have used every
brand of strychnine we could get for
years with poor results, but am glad
to say that this has proven highly
satisfactory. We have gotten as high
as twenty-four grey wolves with one
ounce of the strychnine, and the best
feature of it is they are found close to
the bait.
Kindly forward us a pound of the
strychnine at once, by mail.
