Mr. Rothermel answered: "Yes, the company has gotten on its feet. It has recovered quickly. It was not badly hurt, after all. And thus it resembles a widow of whom 1 heard recently. This lady's husband died, and, a day or two after the funeral, a neighbor called to extend her condolences. "She expecte' to find the widow frantic with g. .

REAL FAIRY PRINCE. Yankee Stenographer Meets Him in Guise of Rich German. Buffalo, N. Y., Nov. 27.-Pretty e Jeanette Benham sat idly striking e the keys of a typewriter machine in i, the office of a motor company a few r- weeks ago, when Fritz I.oestr, a mil o lionaire of Berlin, entered the office to complete the purchase of a touring auto. 0 Miss Benham was a new arrival .n ii once, lost his heart and forgot all that he had intended to say. Instead he requested an introduction and got it. Matters have sped since then. Miss Benham wears a huge diamond brace let. It is said the stenographer and the millionaire are to be married after the Christmas holidays. Mr. Loeser will some day be one of the richest men in the German em pire. The Loeser family is the to bacco trust of Germany. In Berlin alone the family maintains one hun dred stores and there are enough more scattered throughout the empire to make a total of 500. Serenely Awaiting Fate. "Jacob Riis, the sociologist," said a lawyer of New York, "has a soft heart. Everything interests him. His sym pathy flows oue in every direction. The poor have in him a true friend. "Mr. Rils sat in my anteroom one morning, waitinW to consult me. Near him a young girl clicked busily away on a typewriter. She was pretty and neat, with clear eyes and soft hair, but perhaps a little pale. "As Mr. Riis regarded her, so young and fresh, working hard in a stuffy of fice while her more fortunate sisters were riding or mortoring in the park, he felt sorry for her, and he said gently: "'Do you ever get tired, you young stenographers, of eternally pounding away upon thosb keys?' "'Ah, yes, we do indeed,' said the young girl. ' "'Then what do you do?" Mr. Rils asked. "'Then, as a rule,' she answered, smiling, 'we marry our employers.'" DEFICIT WILL PROVE SMALL SECRETARY SHAW OPPOSED TO REVENUE CHARGES. BOND ISSUE FOR CANAL Emergency Appropriation Expected t From Congress to Cover Obligations 1 Contracted by Commission Will be Restored by Sale of Securites. WVashington, Noovember 27.-If the recolm en!lldal(tions of Secretary Shaw haveI iin foliow:U.l by the i)resident, Il.h ( ,ie l ] L'u n go su Lges osIio ill the '.'" 0. the (I chief (xoCltv' in Con ta i ; :e'rnc(. o to additional ledis ihtion for revenues. On the other h:.ir!, the mie saige is expected to point out a decided improvement in the rev_ cenues of the government in the last four or fivew months, and the probabil ity of any deficit this fiscal year will be so small that it will be easily cared for by the surplus accumulated in for. mer fiscal years. A number of interests that were threatened by imposition of taxes have called on Secretary Shaw, who has been reported as favoring this or that kind of legislation, but he has inform ed all that they need feel no alarm at the coming session of congress, so far as he can see at this time. Fresh alarm has been given by the official statement that the Panama canal commission has contracted obli gations amounting to $16,000,000, that must be paid by the end of this fiscal year, June 30, 1906, some of them be fore that time, and that congress will be asked to at once make an emer gency appropriation for this sum. Inquiry has developed that the com mission, out of the original appropria ,tion of $10,000,000, has sufficient money on hand to run ordinary ex penses until January 1, at which time the disbursing officers will be penni less. The obligations contracted will in a majority of cases not be due until toward the end of the fiscal year. The fear is expressed that, if the big canal appropriation is to be paid out of the regular revenues of the government, the deficit for the fiscal year will be so great as to call for revenue laws to make up the deficien cy. It is the idea of the canal com mission, however, that the $16,000,000 appropriated, or whatever amount of it is used, will be restored to the treas ury out of the first sale of canal bonds that is made. The appropriation would, therefore, be merely in the nature of a loan to the canal commis sion, and the phraseology employed in the bill making the appropriation will carry the intention to repay the treasury for the amounts advanced. It is the belief of the canal officers that all expenditures for the canal m the future should be paid from bona issues, so as to keep the accounts en I tirely separate from the regular reve nues and expenditures of the treasury. This is also favored by Secretary Shaw, who would oppose an appropria I tion that would not be returned. An r Issue of canal bonds will follow, the passing by congress of legislation that 3 will make them attractive for national bank circulation, the Spooner act fail ing to make such provision. Without I this bonds would bra little above DEATH OF STOCKMAN g f SAMUEL D. BELL OF WYOMING SUCCUMBS TO STROKE t OF PARALYSIS. t STRICKEN AT HOTEL : While Seated in Chair in Office- C True Condition Not Discovered for g Several Hours-Had Just Complet ed Important Deal. Samuel D. Bell, well known in north ern Wyoming as a stockman of pro- t minence, died at St. Vincent's hospital in this city at 8:15 yesterday morn ing, after an illness of about a week. Mr. Bell came to Billings for the pur- e pose of buying sheep and he consum mated several deals in that line be fore he was stricken with the illness that ended in his death. His death was due to paralysis and the circum stances surrounding it were very sad. At 5 o'clock in the afternoon a week ago he closed a deal with A. C. Logan for the purchase of several thousand. ewes. After the business was com pleted Mr. Bell went into the dining room of the Grand hotel, where he was a regular guest, and ate his sup per. He appeared in excellent health and spirits. After eating supper he re turned to the hotel office and seated himself in one of the large chairs in the main lobby. Shortly afterwards Mr. Logan returned to the hotel and attempted to resume conversation with him, but Mr. Bell's appearance and actions caused Mr. Logan to think that he had been drinking to excess. His head dropped on his breast and when he was addressed he simply turned his head and gave his friend a vacant look. Knowing him to be a man of abstemious habits Mr. Logan wondered greatly aL his condition, but the idea of his being ill never once on Ic: the latter's mind. La ,',r in the evening several other st(e -,'n friends of Mr. Bell's enter .: the hlotil al:id endleavored to en gage him in conversation with thie :s;ae results. He was allowed to re main in the chair until quite a late hour in the evening, when he was as sisted to his room by i'i' hotel em ployes, and placed in L. ! His true condition was noi discover ed until the following morning, when Mr. Bennighoff visited his room. That gentleman saw at a glance that his guest was in a percarious condition, and he at once summoned a physician. Mr. Bell was unable to speak when discovered and remained in that condition until he died. Last r Wednesday he brightened up some what and the attending physician be gan to have hopes of his recovery. The following day he began to grow weaker and gradually lost strength un til the end came. Mrs. Bell was summoned from her home in Sheridan the day following 1 Mr. Bell's entrance to the hospital, and she remained faithfully at his bedside until the end came. The body was removed yesterday after noon to George Setzler's undertaking t establishment from which place it will be conveyed to the depot this morning and sent to Sheridan on the 9:05 train. The deceased was 52 years of age and 1 beside his wife leaves several chil Sdren. SAYS WHITMAN SAVED OREGON Having crossed the plains with Mar cus Whitman's first train in 1843, John A. Stoghton, aged 75, of Cheney, Wash., claims to be one of the oldest pioneers living in the northwest. Knowing Doctor Whitman inti mately, and being an eyewit ness of the making of much of the early history of the Ore gon country, Mr. Stoughton declares that the part of Doctor Whitman took in saving this region to the United States is not a myth, but absolute fact, says the Spokesman Review. "If it hadn't been for Doctor Whit man," said Mr. Stoughton yesterday, "this country would now belong to John Bull. "Doctor Whitman came out as a missionary in 1836. He had a small party with him gnd established a mis. sion at Walla Walla. The reason for his trip to Washington to plead with the president-and I have his own words for it-was this: One day he rode over to the Hudson Bay's fort at dinner. XVbiie ho was there some Red P1 river Canadians, and among them four or five priests, arrived at the fort and sat down to supper in aq, adjoining room. They did not know that Doctor 3 Whitman was there, and he heard st them talking about what they were $ going to do. They said next year they 4 would bring a party of immigrants from the Red River country to the le Willamette valley and settle this coun- C try for the British crown. % Doctor Whitman was such a patriot he could not stand that. He went back s to the mission and called for volun- $ teers to go to Washington, and A. L. Lovejoy-who was afterward a neigh bor of mine-and an Indian offered to go with him. That was in November 4 of '42. They were snowbound in the , north and had to go east by way of b California. The Indian and Lovejoy s gave out in Arkansas, and Doctor $ Whitman went on alone. Eight Months on the Road. c "He saw Daniel Webster, then sec- 4 retary of state, and President Polk, but they pooh poohed the idea of Ore- s gon, and said that it was impossible to get a wagon across the Rockies, and if a wagon did get over there was noth ing beyond but sand and sage. Whit man asked for an interview with the ( president alone next day, and got a delay in the treaty with England, while I he led a wagon train across the moun tains to show it could be done. Then he and Mr. Lovejoy set out appoint ing lecturers all over the states to talk about Oregon. When the lecturer came to my town he persuaded my people to go, and boy as I was then only 13 years old-I wanted to get right up and go fight Indians as I listened to the accounts of Oregon. We left Fort Leavenworth on the Missouri river in April, 1843, and were eight months on the road. Every one in the company wor shipped Doctor Whitman. He was the most upright character in all respects that I ever saw. There was no road or trail, and he and a mountaineer guided us through the mountains. At times when we got into a pocket in the mountains we would have to camp f(r a week while be found a way out. Aio:r we got into the scuth Idaho and eastern Oregon country, we ran out of food, and Doctor Whitman went on ahead and got wheat from the Indians whom he had taught to grow it on his first trip, and every few days an Indian would come into camp with a couple of sacks of ground wheat on his horses. I tell you, we appreciated it then. The train was allowed to string out, for miles on the road. Most of the people got sick from using the had water on the plains, and Doctor \Vhii..a:n 'rodle h) l: and forth night nd l(lda attend_ "i ('remont, was sent oIII an over' look lus after we Ihad beeon on thle -road six montihs, and when he return (- e with acctollunts of the Oregon couin Iry and a train getting through there was such excitement in congress that it was out of the question to talk about giving it up to Great Britain. s If it hadn't been for that interview with the president England would now 3 own all the land on two sides of the a United States, and we wouldn't have 3 dared to call our life our own. Ate Boiled Wheat. "We settled at Oregon City. For food we had boiled wheat and peas with the game we killed. The wheat was used just like corn hominy. On Sunday and when we wanted to have a special dish we burned out a hollow place in the top of a fir log and ground the wheat into a sort of flour and made bread out of it. Finally we got a few pigs from the Hudson Bay company, and then we got on fairly well." Walking along the street the old man saw a stuffed bear. "I've killed many a one of them fellows," he said. "Last winter, as old as I am, I hunted deer at Santa, Idaho, and got 'em, too. I've killed a lot of Indians, too. The first one I killed 'was an Indian chief named Comstock. About 20 Molalla Indians near Oregon City got midhievous and came into town with their bows and arrows and raised a warwhoop. At the first yell every body got a gun, and after a few shots the Indians ran off. The chief got de tached from his party and ran under a bridge. A man named LeBreton, who was to be married the next day, the first wedding in the state, called for volunteers to get Comstock. No body offered, and I volunteered, though I was only 15. LeBreton went under the bridge just ahead of me, and the Indian shot him in the arm with a poisoned bullet and he died next day. Just as he shot I raised my rifle and hit him as clean in the fore head as you ever saw. 'I was the hero of the camp after that. "Another man and I killed 13 In dians at one time when we were going to California after gold in '48. We stopped behind our party to fish in the Rogue river country, and the In dians got after us with their bows and arrows. "I came to Oheney in '79 and have farmed near there ever since. I have seen the time when I could buy any block in Spokane for' $250." ZLAtt tles in job printing at The PRODUCE AND MONEY MARKETS.. St. Paul Livestock. St. Paul, Nov. 27.-Cattle-Receipts 3,000.
