All who use Chamberlain's Pain Balm for rheumatism are delighted with the quick relief from pain which it affords. When speaking of this Mr, D. N. Sinks, of Troy, Ohio, says: "Some time ago I had a severe attack of rheumatism in my arm and shoul der. I tried numerous remedies but got no relief until I was recommended by Messrs. Geo. F. Parsons & Co., druggists of this place, to try Cham berlain's Pain Balm. They recom mended it so highly that I bought a bottle. I was soon relieved of all pain. I have since recommended this lini ment to many of my friends, who agree with me that it is the best remedy for muscular rheumatism in the market." For sale by Hamilton Drug and Jew elry Store.

Nela Peterson, the condemned murderer, was granted a new trial Monday by the state supreme court. The case w as reversed because the lower court refused to allow evidence to be introduced to show that the de fendant had been frequently threat ened by the murdered man. It was also claimed the court erred in not submitting to the jury the question of the defendant's sanity, by a jury especially appointed for that pur pose. The court held, however, that no error was committed in that re spect. The new trial will come up at the May term of court and will necessitate a jury being drawn. Pet erson, who ever since his sentence has professed to be anxions to be hanged even if it were necessary to hang himself and who from time to time has seemingly attempted to starve himself, when informed of the court's decision, made no attempt to conceal his delight at being given another chance for his life. that vice, and one John lath the lt are Bert that or the THE PROGRAM.

Situated about five miles southwest * of Florence and two miles from the railroad in a thickly wooded and pic turesque country is the busy and pro»-'* perous sawmill owned and operated by' the Northwest Milling & Lumber Com pany and under the efficient and ener-' getic management of Joe Ferrel, for merly connected with the lumber d.q- " partment of the Anaconda Coppen,. Mining company of this city,. The mill, which takes fourth plaça among the sawmills of the state in size and capacity, with an average daily output ot 45,000 feet, is supplied with logs from the surrounding woods by a large crew of loggers, who under the direction of Foremen Boney Davis and Frank Spencer, veterans in the management of large logging enter prises, perform prodigious feats with the axe and the "peevy." Part of the logs are hauled in to the mill on trucks, each drawn by four powerful horses, from the almost in- ' accessible heights that surround the mill. The four horse teamsters are Harry Martin, Ed Moulton, John Schofield, Robt. Blair, Lew Kelly and', Ed Henderson, all of whom have,* * through long practice, become expert with the "strings." A novel feature of the logging de partment of this busy mill is a long shute—two miles in length—which carries a large portion of the logs saw ed, from the top of the mountain west; ( of the mill to the skidway at the mill, where it is quickly converted into lum ber, again loaded on trucks, and haul-* ed to the lumber yard at Kendall'«. Spur, from-theie to be shipped to the* markets of Butte, Anaconda and other towns of the state. The mill, under the management of Foreman John Wimett, who also,, fills the responsible position of filer and is a well known lumberman of t . the state, is admirable for the clock work regularity with which every thing is conducted. Jerry Jordan, a former Hamiltonian, is sawyer, En gineer George Blake, an adept in his line, burnishes the power that runs the saw, W. J. Ball holds down the position of setter with a confident air that cannot be counterfeited by a no vice, John Henderson runs the edger and the irrepressible D. P. Daugherty, manages the planer. About a month ago a lath mill wa» j added to the plant, which makes it-., one of the most complete in the state. John Jenson is engineer and Frank Sears filer of this little side mill, and , owing to the superior workmanship a. lath is produced that is second to none made in the state. The most important position in the, camp, however,—in the estimation of the lumberjack—is held by Bert Town send, the cook, who is now enjoying a short vacation at his farm near Darby, lt would be impossible to describe the excellent manner in which the meals are "dished up" at Kendall's camp. Only a visit to that attractive cook house would convince the reader that Bert is the most popular man in the camp. It is the impression of the writer that there is not a more jolly, sociable or big-hearted crew in existence than^ the boys of Kendall's camp, and we wish the management a long and pros perous "run" in that delightful lo cality . ' i CLARK WILL FIGHT. To the Last Ditch —Want« Vindica tion Will be a Candidate for Re Election. New York, April 15.—W. A. Clark* of Montana and New York and for mer Governor Hauser of Montana held a conference here today relative to ' Mr. Clark's United States senate as-"' pirations. Mr. Clark referred all in quiries to Mr. Hauser, who in turn said that Mr. Clark would "fight to the last ditch" to retain his seat in the senate. "If his seat is declared vacant final ly," said Mr. Hauser, "Senator Clark will become a candidate for re election by the next state legislature to be elected in November." Mr. Hauser intimated further as if with assurance from Montana that ' Governor Smith would not call the present legislature in extra session to vote for a senator, even if Mr. Clark's seat should be declared vacant in j Washington. It is said that although ! the senate committee on elections has agreed unanimously that Mr. Clark was not entitled 1o his seat, Mr. Clark ; will carry the contest into the open senate.
