'rpýd646!ýeºlrý FATAL ADCIDENT WITH GUN A very sad affair was the accident al shooting of young George Bur tington by his friend, George Johnson, on Satuday evening, last. The boys were playfully tusselling for the pos session of a revolver, cn the side walk just below the old city hall, when the gun was discharged, the bullet striking Burrington in the ab domen. He was given immediate medical attention, and on Sunday eve ning was taken to to the hospital at Great Falls, where he expired on Monday at 11:30 A. M. His father is an engineer running out of Havre, his mother and brother being residents of the city. The remains were brought to Havre on Tuseday morning's train. This awful ending of a young man's career is another forceful illustra tion of the folly of carrying a gun, and there should be some means of enforcing the law, and putting a stop ao the pernicious practice.

The secretary was appointed a con' mittee of one, with power to call for help from other members to draw up by-laws for presentation at the next meeting. A recess of five minutes was taken for the purpose of enabling the mem bers present to sign up for the new organization. Dr.- McKenzie who passed the list, created a little fun by insisting that the secretary of the Bryan and Kern club who was present in the interest of the Herald, should sign the list. Bro. Van begged off, and was given thirty days time in which to consid er the matter. It was decided to postpone the se lection of the registration and poll ing committee until the next meeting. After the list had been signed, there was some discussion as to ways and means and mattcrs of general in terest, after which the meeing ad journed until Monday night, August - 24th.

M.E.CONFERENCE INIISESSION Special correspondence to Herald: Kalispell, Aug. 15, 1908.--The an nual conference of the Methodist Ep iscopal church of the North Montana Conference was held i nKalispell, Mon. tana, from August 12th to 16th. Bishop McDowell, who was to pre sdec, was unable to be prcscnt on account of the illness of Mrs. Mc Dowell, who, however, is on the way to recovery, and Bishop Lewis, who was elected to the Bishopric at the, last general conference, presided. Bishop Lewis is a great-hearted, sweet-spirltd, evangelistic man. All were highly pleased with him as pre siding officer. He will soon take up his residence at Foo Chow, China, and his work will be in the Orient. This was the first conference session of the North Montana conference. The conference was organized a year ago, from Kalispell and North Montana Missions, with a membership of twen ty-live ministers. This year there was a report of a-` bout thirty ministers, showing a good increase for the first year. One of the valuable features of the conference was its 4 o'clock evange listic meetings. These meetings were led by Evangelist Van Marter of the Oregon conference. He is indeed a second "Bro. Van," but he also in eludes many of the Billy Sunday fea tures and in many places he is called "the Second Billy Sunday." These evangelistic meetings were well attended and there was a splendid interest manifested. Dr. S. O. Benton, recording secre tary of the Foreign Missions Society was present to represent that depart ment of the church and everybody was enthused with his address. The Home Mission and Church Ex= tension Socitey was represented by Alph. G. Kynett and the Bcok Con cern and Pacific Advocate by Dr. Ra der. The reports of the charges of the confrenece show a good 4dvance all along the line. There is a large ad vance in pastoral support, missions membership, The church of the co ferencne is rapidly growing. APOINTMENTS:-KALISPELL -DmS TRICT, O. A. WHITE, Supt. , .alispell--Rev. F: A.

A prominent member of a German American society told a story about a German friend of his who was taken ill. For many days the German was close to death, but after a time he showed improvement in condition. The doctor told the German's wife that her husband might have anything to eat that he liked. The German expressed a desire for limburger cheese, and the wife, being a generous woman and pleased at the improvement and in order that her husband might have a nibble at any time he had a taste for it, put some cheese i~ ever room in the house. It is easy to imagine the aroma. The next morning the doctor called at the house, and as soon as he opened the door he asked: "When did he die?"-Hartford Post How it Works Out. "I never tell funny stories in my speeches," remarked Senator Sor ghum. "The audience always enjoys them." "Yes. A man hears you tell a funny story, and he thinks it is so good he tries to remember it. He regards you as a first rate fellow and feels thank ful to you for giving him a new one. Then he tells it to the first friend 'he meets, and as he isn't a good story teller the friend doesn't laugh.
