GEORG E, Agent. NOVEL CURE FOR DISEASE TRAVELING MAN'S STRANGE RE LIEF FROM RHEUMATISM. ANT JUICE IS THE REMEDY Tells of Remarkable Experience Hei Had in Mountains of Oregon Last Year. "Cures" for rheumatism are not less common than the disease itself and each has its friends, persons who claim to have received relief if not permanent freedom from the tortures of the malady by the application of some favorite remedy, but, perhaps, that described by Thomas Anderson. a traveling man from Portland, is probably the least known of all. He declares it to be unfailing and won ders why it is not generally included in the list of remedies, especially among the more strange and unique ones. A few days ago several men were gathered in one of the hotels. As is usual, one of the party was suffering the most expuisite pains in his legs because of an attack of rheumatism and he frequently punctuated his conversation with remarks that would have shocked ears less modest than those upon which they fell, for a worldly man with rheumatism is not Sio careful as he might be in the se lection of words whenever his enemy j. particularly aggressive. This caused Mr. Anderson to tell of his cure. " For many years," he said, "I was Eer from rheumatism in its t orm and I tried about every that was ever heard of in vain evrs t.i obtain relief. I went to SuDie4elnal pprings on the coast lt. iery doofor and old wo tialt could give me lasting joy and contentment of body and mind. "The 'ant cure' consists of boiling the common red ants until an oint ment is produced. A portion of the ointment is mixed with water, hot, in a bathtub, and the rest is applied by means of bandages. The first use brought me relief and it was not long before I found myself improving at an astonishing rate. "In order to obtain the ants, which have their hills by the thousand in the locality which I visited, a common tablespoon is used to stir the surface of one of their hills. The ants are decidedly pugnacious, but lacking in judgment, as you all probably know. As soon as the stirring begins the ants rush to the defense of their home and make an attack on the spoon. To the edges of this they cling so tenaciously that it is with some dif ticulty they are brushed off. A wide necked bottle, usually a fruit jar, is taken along. Into this the ants are put and when the jar is half full of ants water is poured upon them and the first step of making the ointment has begun. The insects are boiled and then alcohol is mixed with the mass, which after boiling becomes a paste. "A remarkable feature of the oint ment is the amount of electricity it contains. Its application causes a tingling sensation all over the body and extending to the very fingertips and toes' ends. Particularly pro nounced is this sensation in the bath tub, from which the patient emerges with a feeling of relief and rest hard to describe, while the desire for sleep is simply irresistable and one has to give way to it, to sleep in a manner unknown to the sufferer from rheuma tism. The first time I took one of the baths I slept at least a dozen hours without waking once, something I had not done before in years." Mr. Anderson told of a really re mrakable cure that he witnessed while undergoing treatment himself. He said a boy, the son of a farmer, ar rived at the place with rheumatism so badly that his body was twisted out of shape and the lad was all but helpless. His father had spent hun dreds of dallars in fruitless effort to secure at least relief for his son. As a last resort he was induced to allow the boy to take the "ant cure" and be was t.red over to an old German the old man did was to place the boy in a bath of hot ant juice. The water was so warm that the boy cried out he was being boiled. After being kept in the tub for a short time he was taken out and put to bed. He fell asleep almost instantly and did not wake for about 18 hours. Finally when he woke he found that his limbs, upper and lower, responded to his will with almost no pain and the first thing he asked for was something to eat. For a month the treatment was kept up, during which time the boy's father wrote almost daily making inquiries concerning him. The old man who had him in charge told the boy not to answer any of the letters, saying "bye-and-bye your father will come rushing here, uninking to find you dead and then we'll have a surprise for him." Sure enough, the fatheri finally put in an his appearance, pre pared for war. The boy met him some distance from the house of the old hermit and when the father saw the change that had taken place he was almost overcome with joy and surprise and broke down and wept. The boy was allowed to remain a short time longer and when Mr. Anderson last heard of him was as well as any boy could be. Mr. Anderson said that the "ant doc tor" told him the cure he practiced was of Russian origin and employed very commonly in that part of Europe from which he came.

AN INJUNCTION IS ISSUED Defendant Enjoined from Construct ing Ditch Pending Settlement of Condemnation Proceedings. Yellowstone county is plaintiff in an action for condemnation brought against J. E. Lannigan, a rancher re siding a few miles west of the city. In the complaint filed by County Attorney Harris, after the tact of the county's ability to enter suit has been set forth, it is alleged that March 6, 1902, a petition, duly and regularly made, was filed with the county clerk praying the county commissioners to open and construct a public wagon road from a point beginning at the northeast corner of the northeast quarter of section 23, township 1 south, range 25 east, thence to run due east on the section line between sections 13 and 24, township 1 south, range 25 east, and sections 18 and 19, township 1 south, range 26 east, to a point where the line intersects the county road running north between sections 17 and 18, township 1 south, range 26 east. Continuing, the com plaint charges that the laws of the state" of Montana were fully complied with, as their regards to the opening of public roads, and that September 4, 1902, tae road prayed for in the' petition was declared a county road. Notwithstanding this ,it seems that the defendant, who is the owner of the southeast quarter of section 13, township 1 south, range 25 east, over which the road will pass, has refused to give his consent to its opening, although the men who petitioned' for its opening, and whose names are added, have given their consent to its pessing through their lands and 1WyudaE~lb~C 4W*R to open the road are set forth, among others being that of affording a more direct and convenient route to a pub lic school in district No. 23, located on the western point of land owned by the Qefendant, and to give the peo ple living in districts Nos. 3, 4, 8, 23 and 25 a more direct and conven ient route to the city of Billings. The total length of the road, if opened, will be about two miless and it will be 60 feet in width. Prayer is made of the court for the appointment of a board of three commissioners to assess the damages plaintiff should pay the defendant in consequence of the appropriation of the land. Attached" to the complaint is 'a plat showing the location of the road and where it passes through defendant's premises. Injunction Issued. Supplementary to the coniplaint is an affidavit by Mr. Harris that in ad dition to refusing to accept a reason able sum from the county as com pensation for right-of-way through his land, the defendant is also causing an irrigating ditch to be dug over the ground sought to be condemned and across the line of the contemplated rid. Unless he is restrained from completing the ditch, the affidavit further alleges, the plaintiff will be greatly and irreparably damaged. Therefore the court is asked to issue an injunction restraining the defend ant from proceeding further with his ditch. Judge Loud granted the prayer and ordered the defendant enjoined pend ing settlement of the condemnation proceedings. We want hay, oats, wheat, potatoe3 and farm produce.
