Humbert, king of Italy, was sbot and instantly killed by an anarchist last Sunday. Although the man who sits upon a throne has an extra hazardous occu pation, usually there is no difficulty in filling vacancies. The liqui .1 furnished to the people of Hamilton by the Anaconda Copper Mining company's water department evidently is of tne same grade of pur ity as the samples turned out by its political department. The San Francisco Chroricle is rather retrospective on the Chinese question. It says: "In whatever tettlement may ultimately be mude it must not bo forgotten that if tho West had let Cbiua alone, China would never have meddled with the West. The trouble has crown out of forcing treaties at the point of the bayonet upon an unwilling people. The object of the whole business has been to sell goods. The pretense of any other motive is ntter humbug.'' Iu tho large sawmills of Joseph Fialla, iu Austria, the sawdust is util ized by being made up into briquettes ; these form a good combustible for boiler furnaces or household use. The sawdust is impregnated with a •fixture of tarry substances and heat ed to the proper temperature; it is than passed over a plate of iron heat ed by steam, from which a screw con- j feyor takes it to the screw press, «bare it's oo in pressed into briquettes ^ of the required size. The press turns out 19 por minute, weighing two fifths of a pound each and measuring 6x2|xll inches. The calorific power is about the same as that of lignite, with but 4 per cent of ash. The fac tory turns out more than 6.000,000 briquettes a year ; the cost is abont 1G cents per thousand, and the selling price reaches one dollar, leaving a considerable margin of profit.—Scien tific American. They do say that "the push" in Anaconda are becoming very much alarmed at the disaffection among the workingman at the smelters and some of the moro intelligent political boosters for the company fear that they will be unable to elect a com pany legislative ticket or any county officers in Deer Lodge county this fall and even despair of re-electing Mayor Madden. It seems that the men have grown sick and tired of the despotism to which they have been subjected, and, having saved their wages and work being very plentiful everywhere, ',they have also grown much more independent, than former ly. The smeltermen of Anaconda are also taking a deep interest in the eight-hour movement and were very much disappointed when the Amal gamated officials refused to accede to the request of the Butte unions. The men declare that Secretary Dudley, of the Anacouda company, might, at least, have couched the company's re fusal to grant the eight-hour boon, m mild and courteous language instead of threatening to close down the works if the matter was pushed. Such is the tale told by well informed em ploy es of the Äuacouda company di rect from Anaconda, and no intelli gent person need wonder if it's so. Ho can very easily find out. of a * THE SUGAR TRUST. Humiltou householders, m addition to being compelled to pay moro for their flour, will not got ns many pounds of sugar for a dollar ns they have been receiving. A few days ago the American Sugar Refiniug com pany advanced the price of refined sugar 10 poiuts, which makes the price of granulated six ceuts net. Xltis is the highest price that has been asked by the refinery for nine years. The company has put up the price half a dozen times in the past two mouths, and the independent companies have followed suit. The impression is that the war which has waged so long between the trust and the independents is over,and that the last ndvauce will be followed by another. > While this advance may not ap pear to be great to the ordinary man, being about three quarters of a cent as compared with prices paid recent ly it represents a big profit to the sugar trust. The trust turns out 40, 000 barrels of sugar a day, aud the profitât the present price is $1.62 a barrel, or an aggrogate daily profit of $64,800. THE EIGHT-HOUR DAY. From the Hülfe Miner. The eight-hour day for under ground miners has been iu effect in Butte for something over a month now. It has proved a most satisfac tory change to those effected by it— both employers and men. The former find they get a much bettor service iu the shorter working day than they do in the longer; and that the relations between their 'employes and them selves is very much improved. The men find more time to devote to their homes and their individual pleasures, with plenty of opportunity for need ed rest; and as a natural consequence of the kindly feelings they have for those who made such conditions pos sible they work with greater vim and more eu rnestuess than ceu'd lie <x pected under the former arrange ment. It could scarcely be other wise. It was a natural consequence. No matter how good the deed or how worthy its object there are al ways to be found those who qui stien the motive— somi narrow intellect ibat will see in everything someth hi g ( 1 NUM WhL Extra strain needs extra strength. When a man begins to add to his hours of labor, and subtract from his hours of rest, he is putting an extra strain on brain and txxly. In such cases many men make the serious mistake of rising stimulating liquors, or alcoholic medi cines. These can only injure. The spur forces on the horse, hut does not strengthen him. Stimulants are only spurs. The need of the body is strength. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is invaluable to overworked men and women. It strengthens the stomach, increases the blood supply, nourishes the nerves, and gives vital power to brain and body. There is no alcohol in "Golden Med ical Discovery." It. contains no opium, cocaine or other narcotic. It is strictly a temperance medicine. Mr. Edward Jacobs, of Marengo, Crawford Co., Indiana, writes: " After three years of suffering with liver trouble and malaria 1 gave up all hopes of ever getting stout again, and the last chance was to try your medicine. I had tried all the home doctors and received hut little re lief. After taking three bottles of Dr. Pierce's Golden Merlic.il Discovery and one vial of his * Pleasant Pellets ' 1 am stout aud hearty', it is due entirely to your wonderful medicines.''

Pierce, Buffalo, N. Y. x>r to carp at. \s with other things with tho eight-hour movement for un derground mining iu the Butte camp. When Senator Clark and F . Aug Heinzo granted the eight hour work day to the miners employed under ground in their Butte properties the cry was raised that it had been done for political effect. No account was taken of the fact that the men had re quested it of these miue owners tho same as they have of tho other big mine owners of the camp. Tho re quest came from the men who delve in the bowels of the earth. It was ac ceded to by the two owners named. Had it been graut, ed without the ask iDg there might have been some ex cuse for charging politics. As tho matter stands there was absolutely no excuse. To the ordinary observer it might appear that the case of those who have not followed a good example would be much stronger if they would advance some good and sufficient reasons for holding buck in tho mut ter, To accuse of unworthy motives those who have acceded to the request of their employes is no argument against the desirability of an eight hour work day in all the miDos of Butte. If thero are reasons why all mines can not or will not do what some of them have done let them be known. There is nothing convincing in the charge that politics had all to do with the granting of the request for a shorter work day underground. Home better reasons are needed for failure to make tho change general. A Thousand Tongues. Could not express the rapture of Annie E. Springer.of 1135 Howard St., Philadelphia, Pa., when she found that Dr, King's New Discovery for Consumption had completely cured lier of a hacking cough that for many years had made life a burden. All other remedies and doctors could give her no help, but she says of this Royal Cure—'Tt soon removed the pain in my chest and I can now sleep soundly, something I can scarcely re member doing before. I feel like sounding Ks praises throughout the Universe." So will every one who tries Dr. King's New Discovery for any trouble of the Throat, Chest or Lungs. Price 50c and $1.00.
