TO CET BACH MME. LA BONTA IS GROWIN( NERVOUS. WANTS CHANCE TO. TALU Will Tell All About Shooting of Dr Cayley When Given the Opportunity. San Francisco, Nov. 30.-As the time approaches for the transfer o1 Mme. La Bonta from this city tc Butte the woman appears to be grow. ing nervous and irritable, but de clares she is anxious to get' to Butte and be given an opportunity to tell all about the shooting of Dr. Henry A. Cayley. She has received a tele gram from some one who signed the name of Edward Copman. The mes sage read: "Have secured a lawyer for you. Will explain when you come." When asked by the Standard re porter and Detective Gibson, who ar rested her, who this Copman was, Mfme. La Bonta said she didn't know. -TI'oday she gave to the Standard an explanation of the torn fragments of letters found in her room here by De tective Gibson. The latter has claim ed that these fragments, when pasted together, are entirely readable and contain damaging evidence against his prisoner. This statement the wo man denies. She says the "seven page epistle" of which the detective speaks was not from Editor J. W. Kel ley, as the detective claims, but from one C. K. Berry of Seattle, whom she met at Victoria. Berry, she says, thought she was a Florodora girl and made-love to her in the Canadian city. After she made her hasty departure from Victoria Berry discovered who she was, according to the woman, and when asked by his friends why he did not inform the authorities he said because he wouldn't play sneak on a woman. The letter she received from "O. X. Moore," which the detective also found in fragments, she says was written by a man totally unknown to her. She believes he is a friend of Kelley, but knows nothing of him. This letter stated that if she desired to communicate with Kelley she should address O. X. Moore at Seat tie; also if she wanted money to let him know. The latter proposition Mine. La Bonta took advantage of, and she wrote for a loan. On Friday of last week a man whom the woman claims not to know approached her in this city and gave her $100. The woman has visibly' failed in health and spirit since her arrest last Tuesday. She has eaten scar'ely any thing and passes sleepless nights. She permitted herself to be photo graphed yesterday, but declined to 'look pleasant," and when the picture was produced in a local paper this morning Mme. La Bonta expressed satisfaction because, as she declares, "it does not look a bit like me." Sheriff Furey is expected to arrive here from Butte in time to leave for Lhat place with his prisoner on Mon day. THREE NEGROES SOLD. Man Fetches Seven Dollars, Two Wo men Bring Five Each.

Manila, Nov. 30.-The efforts to re store agriculture in the Philippines have been blocked by the dearth of field animals. Ninety per cent of the animals died in the original epidemic of ripderpest and of the small numn her left, many have since died. The government had planned an ex. tensive importation of animals tc meet the crying need and had arrang ,ed to have them immuned. It was forced to abandon this plan on accountof the lack of money to meet the irchqses. The general cul tivation of the plantations is impossi ble without them and the absence of any Immediate, prospect of getting the field asimals leaves the agricul -tal .iatt a tioo in a serious condition. PEOPLE OF THE DAY The Speakership. The result of the recent congression al elections leaves the Republican par ty in control of the house of repre sentatives. As I). B. Hendersop of Iowa, speaker of the house in the Fifty seventh congress, will not be a wenm HON. JOSEPH G. CANNON. ber of the new house the question of who is to be the presiding officer in the Fifty-eighth congress is an interesting one.

Just now it seems to be the opin ion of a majority of the political wise acres that Joseph G.

Littlefleld, Maine; Theo dore E. Burton, Ohio, and James M. Sherman, New York. Man Who Will Succeed De Blowits.

"Yes, sir," eclaimi.d the enthusiast; "golf is the best ever. It has a distinct domestic value th;:L is not gcnerally appreciated. We will suppose, for ex ample, that a man has been celebrat ing a little too much and he wishes to round up and go h:ome. \Veil, as a pre liminary he go's to the golf links to get the exercise. You w-i:l rtadily ap preciate that there are occasions when exercise has a distinct and almost im mediate value. Now, in practice golf works out on the theory that the more exercise a man needs in these circum stances the more h6 gets. The more uncertain he is in his drives the more walking he has to do, and the effect is decidedly beneficial. Of course there may still be a little something notice able about him when he gets home, but it is naturally attributed to the Scotch highball he took because of his weari ness at the conclusion of the round. Oh, golf Is surely a great game!"-Chi cago Post. The Wizard. He can't go forth and say to men, "You shall do that or this." He can't with one stroke of a pen Send millions woe or bliss, But he can reach with little hands And sweetly smile at me, And I forget that sorrow stands Where gladness ought to be. He can't by saying "Yes" or "No" Cause idle wheels to turn; He cannot give to millions woe Or lessen their concern. But he can twine two little arms Around my neck. and I Forget that wealth possesses charms And, gladdened, cease to sigh. --Chicago Record-Herald. Leader In Fiction.

A gentleman who has charge of 2111)0 boys in a large deparliment store loves to talk about boys. "How do you choose your boys?" was asked. "My first question is, 'Where is the boy?' You see. it all depends upon the boy himself. You can judge the boy better from his appearance, his man ner. his dress and the way he comes into an otlice than from any descrip tion of him. Character shows forth in little things: you can't hide it. I take boys by what you might almost ternm first iuim:ressions. I have 'sized him up' beforche enters the office, the respect ful and self respectful way in which-i he meets my look and questions giv ing me an idea of his bringing up and the stullff that is in him. As to ap pearance, I look at once for these things: Polished shoes, clean clothes and clean finger nails. Good clothes are not requisites. A boy's clothes may be ragged, his shoes may have holes in them, yet his appearance may still give evidence of a desire to be neat. I will not employ a cigarette smoker if I know it. As for reference, a boy's teacher is the best reference that he can have. The recommendation which a good boy in our employ gives a boy applying for a position always receives marked consideration. "A cash boy's first advance is to stock boy, office boy or cadet. A stock boy attends to the work in whatever stock he is in. A cadtdt Is a general utility boy. An office boy works around some one of the offices of the house. We promote according to merit, length of service or combined. Whenever pos sible we try to give our oldest employ ees preference, but if another boy who has not been here as long as another shows greater fitness for a vacancy in justice to the house and the boy he gets it. A cash boy gets $2.50 a week; when he has been here three months $3, or if he has shown marked ability $3.50."-Exchange. Male and Thoroughbred Horse. [A fable.] A thoroughbred Arab horse and a mule were lodged together for a night in the same stable. The mule could do nothing but complain of everything. "How stupid these stablemen are!" he exclaimed. "What a wretched building this is, and what rotten straw to lie upon! And the fodder, too-why, it is not fit for asses." Thus he went on finding fault with one thing and then another, while his companion, the thoroughbred steed. uttered not a murmur or complaint, but seemed quite content with what had fallen to his lot. Moral.-Mark ye. my friends, among mankind as well as animals, true gen tility is ever content and noble. Be as sured that we may always recognize the traits of an ill Ibred person if such a one is constantly .a umbling and dis contented with his lot.-H. Berkeley Score in Chatterbox. Don't Overdo Pleasure. It seems impossible to impress it upon the average small boy and girl that there is actually more enjoyment in eating slowly and taking small mouth fuls than in gulping down food in enor mous "chunks" and omitting as far as possible the process of mastication, that there is more pleasure in playing ball at the rate of one game or two each day titan in playing all day long for a week or two, going to bed cross and exhausted every night and weary nlag of the sport before the vacation is half gone, and that there is. generally speaking, more solid "fun" in not over doing a pleasure than there is in rush ing into it at such a rate that the young rioters "tear it to tatters" and them selves, too, in a painfully short time.

Names of Japanese Girls. Many of the pretty and suggestive little words that serve as names foi Japanese girls are as charming in Eng lish as in Japanese.
