One of the things which received ost :god from the :rainfall was the range, which is reported to have dried up ;rapidly during the past two weeks.

While. it is not known definitely what area was covered by the rain, itwas learned that it extended from the mountains in the vicinity of Liv 'igston on the west and those at Red Ldge on the south. Passengers from the last named place report that rain wasi still falling when the train left the Coal city at 4 o'clock this even ing. If this rain extended to' the lroadview: district,' said Dr. Sud dith, i"undoubtedly much good has re sulted.

During the past week the weathe. seemed excessively warm, but the re port of the weather man at the sugau mill shows that the condition was not unusual for the first week in August, in fact when compared with the same period last year, the temperature of the first seven days of August was not so warm as that of the same week ai 1907. There is some satisfaction also in the prediction that' both this and next week will be followed by per. iods of cool weather. The range of temperature during the past week was as follow: Min. Max, Monday 49 90 Tuesday 47 92 Wednesday 53 93 Thursday 67 90 Friday 53 96 Saturday 54 85 Sunday 66 94 During the corresponding week last year the maximum temperature was 96 and the minimum 53.

"One of the differences between the east and the northwest," said .i½get sounder, "s the names of places, ind the Skikoinahies, t~li; nohoiiiibes, the Snoqualmles, the Wahklakums and the lot of them give a man funny feelings, and when he runs across Bucoda, on the Northern Pacific railroad in Pierce county, Wash., he doesn't know wheth er it is Chinook or Siwash or what But It is none of them-like Kenova, In West Virginia, which is near the junc tion of Kentucky, Ohio and Virginia, or Delmar. where Delaware and Mary land come together. Bucoda is a com posite name, and its story is simple enough. When the Northern Pacifle came in a town sprang up, and it must have a name. There were Indian names in plenty, but something more novel was wanted, so Messrs. Buckley, Coulter and Davis, all Northern Pacific officals, put theli heads togetherfiarst and their names later, and the name Bu-co-da was evolved, with an ety mology very apparent to any one who is at all informed in terminology. Bu coda it has remained, and it is not half bad as names go in the Puget sound country." Beggars on Horseback. "'Whoa, thar,' he says, pullin' up his hoes, and then he whines: "'For the love o' charity, kind gent, would ye be so good as to glmme a crust o' bread for meself and a handful o' oats for the old mare?"' The sailor smiled thoughtfully and stirred his ice cream soda with a long spoon. "Yes, Hal," he resumed, "there's ac tual beggars on horseback In Boela. They travels from town to town in caravans. They beg grub for them selves and fodder for their nags, just as I been tellin' ye. "O' course, in the Argentine, where a hoes don't cost a song, it's only nat ural ye should see beggars on horse back, and I ain't sayin' nothin' about that. But in China they ride, too, while there's a Maltese beggar down Malta way what even drives a spring wagon an' takes his gal along.

It was a severe trial to Mr. Harding that his only son's memory was not all that could be desired. "Where in the world he got such a forgetful streak from is beyond me," said the exasper ated father to his wife on one occasion. "What has he forgotten now?" asked Mrs. Harding, with eyes downcast and a demure expression. "The figures of the last return from the election on the bulletin board." And Mr.. Harding inserted a finger in his collar as if to loosen it and shook his head vehemently. "Looked at 'em as he came past not half an hour ago. and now can't tell me. "As I said to him. 'It you're so stu pid you can't keep a few simple figures in your head, why don't you write 'em down on a piece of paper, as I do, and have done all my life. long' before I was your age?'

"This facts of that remtark able affair wer withheld at the time for the most . rgent reasons of- policy, and even now I prefer to tell the story without unme. or localities. It hap pened In the tall of 1888, when a cer tain hotel in a large western city was crowded with tourists. One day at the height -of the season two eptle manly lookiig ttrange.s put up at the house and were assigned to what' we call a 'double room.' About a week later one ofthem appeared at the .f Ace and refietted a private interview with the manager. 'I regret to in;ormn you,' he sald fter the door wae 6144, 'that my rie.id Ia down with: a e. vere attack: of_ mallpox.' "The proprietor pearly tfell out of his chair. There was known to be smallpox in the city, and the bare sug gestion that ithe disease had appeared in the hotel ias enough to empty it in a twinkllng. To let the news get out meant the Itos of thousands upon thousands of dollars. It meant the ruin of the eeaon's business. 'He must be quietly removed at once,' laid the proprietor, trying to control 'hie agitation. "'Removedl' :`exclaimed the. other. 'Taken through the cold air to a lasm. rettol Why,; man, that would be mar derl I'll not permit itl' "The hotiel keeper was thunder. struck. 'Do .yo:'mean to eay he must stay herel he isped. "'Certainly.' said the tranger., "It was a; ticklih situation. The ho tel keeper darei not enforce his sugge tif, while to let the cas remain was like storing gunpowder in a furnace room. He pleaded, protested, begged threatened and .blustered,, but all In vain. The man was . lrm as a rock. t you attempt to eject my sick friend.' he declared, 'I'll publish your Inhuman. ity to the entire community.' "Finally it occurred to the distracted proprietor to see first whether it wae really a case of smallpox, so he sent for a physician, swore him to secreey and hustled him up to the room. The doc'tor took lone look at the disfigured face on the:pillow and reported that the malady, was, there in a malignant type. He advised the man's immedIate removal at any' cost 'If you keep him concealed,' he :isaid, 'the disease may spread, and It would ruin you for I1fe. You owe something to your guests.' Again the proprietor Interviewed the friend, and again the latter refused to budge from his position. "'Where can I take him? he de manded. 'You know very well I can't get comfortable quarters for such a purpose, and I won't have him butch ered in a pe thouse'to please any land lord on earthi' The hotel man~ felt his hair stand on end, but concluded to let things stand as they were until morn. tng. "Next day he sent for the sick man's friend and asked him whether he had any suggestions to make. " Tee,' he replied:. 'I thought up a plan overnight, which you may adopt oi not, as you like. As I said before,' he continued, 'it is useless to try to rent quarters for such a case. We might, however, buy, a small cottage and take him there. I have figured the thing up. and .the total expenas would be about $5,000.

An IEffort Will ,e Mad: Now to Take Him to Pittsburg t..l AttAnd hea First Meetingi. of thiCredltor New York Authoritie:s Objeot. Pittburg, Aug. 12.-Harry K. Thaw was formally adjudged a bank rupt at 11:00 o'clock today 'by lRe! eree in Bankruptcy W. J. Blair. This action was as a siugrise to tnose; terested in the, case as United ~ates Oommiastoner Wirn. T i4ndSay had set Auut 23 as the `date .for the ad. indication. There ,was no eaplanation of the change of plans and this morn= in's action has been made, but it is believed here that, Receiver +.Roger O'MarS ' visit ; to Thaw at Poigjh keepsie yesterday may' have ,'had something to do do with today's move. O'Mara was hurriedly summoned by Thaw on Monday. No hearing was held previous to the entering of the formal order 'of adjudication and Referee Blair has not announced the date of the fir.t meeting of Thaw's creditors. Under the law this must be held not sooner than 10 days and within 00 days. Referee Blair will probably anounce the date of the meeting -to morrow. An effort will' be made to bring Thaw to Pittburg for the flrat meeting of creditors and undese - trict Attorney Jerome of New York is able to prevent his coi.ing, it is believed Thaw will be in l.ttsburg with1n 30 days. Thaw's petition in :bankruptcy was filed August 7 and Roger O'Mara was named as receiver. The petition sets forth that Thaw's liabilities are ,453,. 1401 and his assets $128,012. B"very move in the Thaw proceed ings has shown the determination of Thaw and his counsel to take his case out of the New York courts and a hearing on the question of his ment al. condition in the courts at Pitta burg. The question of Thaw's sanity also can be raised at the first meeting of the creditors. Any creditor has toe right to demand Thaw's ',appearanoe at this meeting and when he is pro duced, the question of his mental con dition can be raised by an objection to his being allowed to testify, on the ground that he is insane and there fore not a competent witness. This also would require a ruling from the United States Court. Among attorneys there appears to. be a quite general (belief that those In charge of Thaw's casee will not be content to have the sanity case paw ed upon by the federal court as an ins cident in the bankruptcy proceedian, because such deOllon, it Is said, would have nothing more than a mor al effect upon his case in New York. Those who take this view believe that soon after Thaw is brought here to face his creditors, an inquestin lun aoy will be Instituted in local coun ty courts.
