COUNTY NEWS.
From the River Press.
F. E. Stramahan went to Great
Falls Tuesday morning to appear as
attorney for the Ilavre I)itch com
pany in its litigation with ranchers
who are using the waters of Beaver
creek. The suit was transferred from
thiis district to the district court of
Cascade county.
The claims of county sheriffs for
transporting convicts to the state
prison during the past two years are
said to aggregate about $20,000, and
the legislature will be asked to make
an appropriation to pay them. The
claim of Sheriff Buckley of this coun
ty amounts to $2,022.
Marriage licenses have been issued
by the clerk of the district court to
Charles H. 1)ittmer and Sophie Thea
dorf of Lloyd, and to Frank Bunton
and Myrtle Mitchell of Havre. There
have been 93 marriage licenses issued
in Chouteau county since the first of
the year.
Paul Beauchamp, a half-breed, who
was brought up from Big Sandy about
three months ago, died this morning
at St. Clair hospital, death being due
to paralysis. Mrs. Viola Banks, a
consumptive, who came up from
llavre about two weeks ago for treat
ment at the hospital, also died at an
early hour this morning.
The sheriff's office is in receipt of a
telegram from the sheriff of Crook
county, Oregon, asking for a descrip
tion of "Kid" Curry and inquiring as
to the amount of reward offered for
the capture of that noted desperado.
The desired information was wired at
once, as it is presumed the Oregon
official has a suspect in view or under
arrest. The various rewards offered
for the fugitive bandit aggregate
about $15,000.

"Leonidas!" exclaimed Mr. Meekton's
wife on his return from a journey. "I
amn at a loss to understand your con
duct when we parted. I said goodby to
you."
"Yes, Henrietta."
"Why didn't you say goodby in re
sponse?"
"I was just about to do so, Henrietta,
but I checked myself. I was afraid
you would accuse me of trying to have
the last word again."
Declared His Intentions.
Mrs. Rusher--Has Mr. Goldcoin, with
fhom you have been dancing all the
evening, at last declared his intentions.
Mabel? Mabel--Yes. aunt. Mrs. Iush

say? Mabel-- He do.lared he would
never mar11ry.

Miaerieu of the Red Sea.
In the waters of the Red sea the ces
sation of the engines on a steamer for
an hour means extreme physical suffer
ing for passengers. For a day it would
involve absolute torture. The wind
which prevails every day is a hot, as
phyxiating blast, and its continuous
directions are from north and south
toward the center. As a result every
passing vessel is subjected to two days
of almost intolerable heat, followed by
two days of comparative comfort, but
instances have been known of crowd
ed liners being compelled when trav
eling with the wind to turn round and
steam back for an hour or so in order
to give the passengers even a brief res
pite from the sufferings induced by
the dull, dead, unbearable atmosphere.

It was night.
They-he and she-were sitting on
the porch looking at the stars.

pered, "what a young man's privilege
is when he sees a shooting star?"
"No," she answered. "I haven't the
slightest idea. There goes one!"-Chi

TAMING A TIGER.
The Way a Showman Got F'riendly
With a Fierce Beast.
A zoologist thus describes how an
attendant brought about friendly rela
tions with a tierce tiger:
"There was a showlmanll used to
know named Melchior. Hie once bought
a mnagniticent Bengal tiger. which he
got at a low price because it had al
ready' killed two men.
"At tirst Melchior would iut his foot
or his hand into his cage, but fl'rom the
way the tiger would leap at him he
knew that to put himself entirely in
Its power would be suicide. Nothing
ke could do would establish a friendly
relationship between himself and the
tiger.
"Some originality was needed, and
Melchior showed it by taking some old
clothes, stutling them wit h rags and
throwintg lhtia ilnto thle ((age The
tiger in a jiffy tore the old cl.hthes to
pieces, thinking that the tigure was a
human being.
"Next day and the next day and the,
next Melchior continued to throw in
to the tiger stuffed figures, and the
tiger continued to destroy them. But
as time passed the animal ceased toi
put heart into its work and in the end
it gave up altogether these aItt acks on
the scarecrows. It would just play
with them or else not not ice them at
all.
"Now was Melchior's time. IIe open
ed the cage door one imorning, wValkedi
in boldly and slapped the tiger f:lmiililr
ly on the back. It gave him a f'rieni (
ly look and purred. It took hii fto
another manikin not worth ihotl.'t in:.
about. It lived seven y·ears withl 31el
chior and became as gentle as a kit
ten."
