i·o'm Wednesday's Daily.
After", a long drawn out period ao
dry :weather, this section of the Yel.
'lostone. valley was visited this af
4iroon by a drenching rain which
laid the dust, cooled the atmosphere
ad did an immense amount of good
n various ways where it tell.
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. Stockmen declare that this
afternoon's shower' was worth many
thousands of dollars in the extra
amount of grass which will result.
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. Farmers' were awaiting just
suchi a ialn 'as this to begin wheat
sowing, and on my farm five seeders
will begin at once the work of plant
ing 400 acres of winter wheat. Lat
er I will seed 500 additional acres to
Turkey. Red.
Although the rain was not' except
ionally heavy it will moisten the sur
face of the ground and will tend to
raw up the .moisture from a depth
f iseveral feet. It came just at an
ipportune time for the farmers in the
"Land Above the Ditch,"'i and has
6one an inestimable amount of good.

In the city, the dust which has beei
particularly disagreeable for some
time, was laid, lawns were refreshed
and the temperature lowered to a
most pleasant, autumn-like coolness
In this connection it may be saia
that the minimum temperature, takes
at 5 o'clock this morning was 47
while during the warmest part of the
day, shortly after.noon, the mercury
rose only to 75; the average for the
day being 61.
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. This week
was followed by a cool period during
which the maximum temperature of
one day was only 65 degrees. The
same is to be expected during the
next two weeks.

An altercation followed and the
strikebreaker pulled out a knife. Tihe
picket at once summoned his oom
rades and after a struggle the man
was 'disarmed, the knife taken from
him and is ne in posession or the
Winnipeg authorities.
J. H. McVey, manager for the strik
era, stated that he had been informed
that more strikebreakers are expect
ed to come in from the states.
Frank Rounemous of Kansas City,
president of the Carmen's union is

enough. When the Northern Pacifle

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

Bu-co-da was evolved, with an ety

An Unaccountable Failing.
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

"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.

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

'that my rie.id Ia down with: a e.

"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.

"'Certainly.' said the tranger.,
"It was a; ticklih situation. The ho

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

hair stand on end, but concluded to let
things stand as they were until morn.

"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. If you ar

too prominent a place.
"An eloquent brother divine from
South Carolina once told me that going
to preach at a strange church he was
taken aside by a deacon, who whis

"'Beg pardon, sir, but I must ask
you not to preach longer than ten or
twelve minutes. It's the musle that
the people come here for.'
"That was wrong. But worse still
was the case of a supply preacher in a
church famous for Its anthems and
choruses. The stranger, not noticing
the scraping and tuning of fiddles,
rose and began to preach, when the
choir leader Jumped 'nup and shouted
angrily to him from the choir loft at
the other end of the church:

more popular as a poultice than those

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
