Court Decides That a Man Is Not Obliged to Make Home for HI« Mother-In-Law, Justice Russell, of the supreme court, the other day granted James Hyland a decree of separation from his wife, deciding that, in refusing to live with him without her mother, she had legally deserted him. Hyland, in his suit against his wife, declares that he was and still is willing to live with her, but that he will not have her mother around. "For the sake of peace," the affidav it continues, "I was willing to sweep and dry the dishes, although 1 knew these were not a husband's duties. I gave my wife $14 out of the $15 1 earned as a weekly salary, but, noth ing I could do satisfied my mother-in law, who insisted upon annoying me upon every possible occasion." The affidavit then goes on to say that, unable to bear it any longer, lie ordered his mother-in-law out of the house, and that his wife left with her. Justice Russell, in allowing the de cree, states that the husband cannot be compelled to support his mother in-law. lie holds that Hyland was right in ordering her out of the house, and that this was not sufficient cause for his wife to leave him. THE NEXT THING NEEDED. Nnvy Now Looking for Armor Device to Overcome Superior l'enetru tton of Solt-.Voai-il Cup. Consideration is being given by naval experts to the invention of some armor device which will overcome the superiority imparted to an armor-pier eing projectile by a soft steel cap. The bureau cf ordnance has received sev eral suggestions, the adoption of which, their authors believe, would nullify the effect of the soft-nosed shells. As the United States has led all oth er nations in the adoption of the soft nosed cap, there is no crying need for haste in providing American men-of war with additional protection. The authorities understand, however, that the success of American experiments with the cap will lead other nations to coopt the invention, and it is therefore desirable that some plan should be de termined upon to overcome the supe Viority of the shell.

Every summer when the sun begins to scorch the lawns and the horse * flies commence to swarm, Hamilton's melancholera-morbus days hare come. This is largely owing to the fact that the town's pure water supply is extinguished and a foul water supply is substituted. By this arrangement certain valuable horseflesh and beautiful landscapes, belonging to Mr. Daly, - are kept in a fairly comfortable condition and the people of Hamilton, who are valuable only in their own estimation, are kept miserable. The pure, cold, refreshing water that within a few hours is melted from the snow bauks high up iu the mountains and dashed down the Skalkaho, over waterfalls and cascades, into the reservoir of the town's ideal water works system, is diverted to the Bitter Root stock farm and the mams that supply the people of Hamilton are pumped partially full of a stagnant fluid «■ drawn from the mill-pond that is the receptacle of train-loads of sawlogs that are alive with vegetable and animal matter and which reek with a sick ening slime, and ot dead and live carcasses and filth of all descriptions. This is not an exaggerated statement. A visit to the banks of that pond will convince anyone. Much sickness has resulted from the use of this water* and much worse sickness is threatened unless prompt measures are taken. The town of Hamilton granted the Anaconda Copper Miniug Co. a free franchise for its water works system and guarantees it protection. The peo ple of Hamilton pay liberally for the water furnished aud in.return are en titled to fair treatment. Section 3 of Ordinance No. i.U, which grants the free franchise, provides - That the said Anaconda Copper Mining Co. and its successors and assigns, shall at all times provide a full and sufficient supply of water for the use of said town for fire and other purposes, aud for the use and wants of the in habitants of said town; said water shall be pure and wholesome and free ' from animal, mineral aud vegetable substances, that would render it un healthful and unfit for domestic purposes." Nobody pretends that any such water as stipulated in the above istbein©. furnished. It is given out, however, that Manager McCrackin, of the water works, Supt. McGinty of the Bitter Root stock farm, and their se?retary- - editorsof the Ravalli Republican and Ravalli Democrat, declare, in excuse, that they and their families drink the water and they don't see why other people can't ! Such assertions as that are very unsatisfactory to persons afflicted with a raging thirst and an irrepressible inclination.to break all past records iu pedostriauism, especially when it is remembered that those fellows would.' drink each other's heart's blood or suck tho Pacific ocean dry through a straw if by so doing they can remain riveted to thoir jobs! Excùses arfe not refreshing these hot enervating dog days. The people want pure water and which may be had through a simple'twist of some body's wrist—there's plenty of water in the Skalkaho and thousands of feet, of pressure to force it down through the mains and hydrants. block 8, and lot 2, block 11, Rivervicw addition, Hamilton, $1.
