Baldness Cured by Destroying the Parasite Germ That Causes It. Baldness follows falling hair, falling hair follows dandruff; and dandruff is the result of a germ digging its way into the scalp to the root of the hair where it saps the vitality of the hair. To destroy that germ is to prevent as well as to cure dandruff, falling hair and, lastly, baldness. There is only one preparation known to do that, New bro's Herpicide, an entirely new scien tific discovery. Wherever it has been tried it has proven wonderfully suc cessful. It can't be otherwise, be cause it utterly destroys the dandruff germ. "You destroy the cause, you remove the effect. Proposals for Wood for Court House and Jail.

Higgins, Editor Seneca, (111.) News, was afflicted for years with piles that no doctor or remedy helped until he tried Bucklen's Arnica salve. He writes two boxes wholly cured him. Its the surest pile cure on earth and the best salve in the world. Cure guaranteed. Only 25 cents. Sold by Bitter Root Drug Co. ADDITIONAL LOCALS. Misses Pearl Carrier and Howard of Anaconda are guests of Mrs. Frank Bullock. Rev. Jacob Mills D. D. will hold the first quartely conference of the M. E. church on Saturday evening at 8 o'clock, and preach at eleven o'clock on Sunday. Members especially re quested to be present. The meeting set for October 19, at which Col. Donovan and Capt. Frank Higgins were to have spoken has been cancelled by the state committee ow ing to the inability of the speakers to make connections at that time. There will be special revival services at the M. E. church, south, this week. Revs. Swift of Stevensville,Llewellyn of Corvallis, and A. A. Walker of East Helena, will assist the pastor. The public is cordially invited to come and take part in all these services. People are not kicking as strenuous ly as might be expected against the present miserable train service for the simple reason that none feel that they can do the subject justice. It is announced, however, that the old time stage line is to resume busi ness and that heneforth passen gers and freight 'will be hauled to Missoula in wagons. News has just reaehed us of the death by consumption, at her home in Synco, Wis., of Miss Abbie Seaver. Miss Seavec came to the Bitter Root in the spriug of 1890 with a view to regaining her health, if possible, and during her stay improved very mater ially in every way, but homesickness caused her to leave us last fall. She was a very exemplary Christian girl, being identified with every good work her health permitted. Knowing she was doomed she cheerfully and brave ly fought the disease, showing so much heroism as to elicit the love and admiration of all who knew her. She was in many ways a model for other young ladies and her loss makes many sad hearts, not only at her home but here in'Hamiltqn. • United They Stand, Democrats, Labor Unioh Party and Populists of Ravalli County Noifi inate the Same Ticket FOR LANDRAM & FLOWERS. Populists and Labor People Hold Conven tions—-Agree I'pon and Ratify Demo cratic Ticket—Victory is Now Assured. At a mass convention or primary held in Labor Union hall in this city last Monday, the labor party of Ra valli county placed a ticket in the field and will now occupy a column upou the official ballot. The labor people nominated the same ticket throughout that had been already placed in the field by the regular democratic convention of which John Landram was chairman and by the populist convention held at Victor last Saturday. Several of the democratic nominees withdrew in the interest of harmony, and populists and labor union candi dates were substituted in their stead upon the democratic ticket. This action was ratified by the populists and labor people and now a complete and practical fusion is effected, by means of which, with good hard, un ceasing work, victory is assured to the fusion or anti-Amalgamated forces. The labor convention was called to order at Labor Union ball by Martin Tingley, the labor party state com naitteeman for Ravalli county. He said that the delegates were there for business and not speech making and called for the nomination of chair man and secretary. Martin Tingley of Hamilton wns unanimously elected chairman and Ed Duffy of Florence, secretary. A discussion arose as to the policy that should be adopted and which would best conserve to the interests of the laboring men of the county and state and the almost unanimous opin ion was that a fusion with the demo crats and populists should be effected. These two parties stand for the eight hour law and kindred reforms that workingmen most desire. By pulling together a victory could be won while if divided nothing could he accom plished. The nominations were then taken up and the following candidates were regularly nominated and the ticket was regularly filed and certified to by County Clerk Smart, yesterday.

Squiers, chairman of the people's party county central committee. J. J. Bond was unanimously chosen chairman and Fred R. Griffith secretary.

Resolved, that we endorse the plat form of the People's party adopted at 'their national convention held at Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on the 31st day of May, 1900, and the platform adopt ed by the People's party at Helena on the 19th day of Sept., 1900. That we pledge our earnest support to that noble speciineti of American manhood, William J. Bryan, who is now waging warfare against the ty rants of accumulated Wealth and cor porate greed, and Adlal E. Stevenson, candidates for president and vice president of the United States. That we condemn the encroachment of foreign trusts on our liberty and call upon all citizens to aid Its to keep the politics from the hands of their unscrupulous agents who work for pay and not principle. That we favor the investment of capital in our beautiful state and coun ty so long as it does not seek to control our political acts, but we aver that nothing can recompense the loss of political liberty, for with that comes poverty of the masses, and wealth then is the flower that blooms at the grave of freedom. The laborer is worthy of his hire and we recognize that upon his pros* perity and happiness rests the founda tion of our government. Reduce the la borers to the condition of India and Italy and we will have anarchy instead of democratic government. That we pledge ourselves to support a legislative enactment for an eight hour labor day as adopted in the Peo ple's party state convention. That we favor a law which will al low any school district to increase its school money at its own discretion be yond the amount allowed by the gen eral school fund. That we are against the forceible annexation of the Philippine Islands. State Labor Party. Four members of the Labor party state committee arrived in Helena from Butte, Friday evening last, and filed the following ticket with the sec retary of state, Saturday, in compli ance with law: For Governor—Judson A. Ferguson, Missoula. For Congress—Caldwell Edwards, Populist, Gallatin. For Lieutenant Governor—Otto F. Shoenfeld, Cascade. Secretary of State—Fredrick M. Fickersou, Flathead. Attorney General—James Donovan, Great Falls. State Auditor—J. H. Calderhead, Populist, Lewis and Clarke. State Treasurer—Robert D. Myles, Broadwater. Superintendent of Public Instruc tion, W. W. Welch, Yellowstone. Associate Justice—George R. Mil burn, Democrat, Custer. The nominations were not made un til negotiations for Hogan's withdraw al had failed. The whole committee proposed to Hogan that he withdraw, with the understanding that the Clark democrats withdraw Toole and sub stitute Ferguson. He flatly declined the offer. 16 it bf I siirely indicates that the fusion ticket is a winner. The Ravalli Contest. The mandamus proceedings insti tuted by the company lawyers to keep, the democratic county ticket off the official ballot occupied the time of the supreme court at Heleua last Friday. T. J. Walsh, one of the Amalgamat ed Copper company's leading attor neys represented the company people and Judges N. W. McConnell and John B. Clayberg appeared for the county clerk who had signified his intention of placing the regular dem ocratic ticket on the ballot. Walsh contended that the company people had a majo rity in the county conven tion, while McConaell and Clayberg hold that the decision of the state democratic couvention, the highest political tribunal iu the state, was fi nal. H. L. Myers.C. M. Crutchfield, Wm. Brenuaa and Luke D. Hatch testified in behalf of the relators and R. Lee McCulloch and Miles Rom ney for the other side. The case was taken under advisement by the court. _ A fusion meeting at wuioa Caldwell Edwards, candidate for congress, and Major Burke, of Idaho, spoke, was held here last Wednesday night. Dr. Squiers presided as chairman. A fair sized audience was in attendance arid the enthusiasm evoked at the opening meeting of the campaign The littiinitiation of Voters. Well, there is a law upon the statute books of Montana which was designed 16 prevent this kind of intimidation, it is is known àk the 'cdtrupt practice act. It has been thérè for years. That there has never heed a prdfeech tion under its provisions is no guar antee that under a prosecuting pfficer bent upon performing his duties there miv not be some. The section of the law on the subject IS found in the penal code. It is as 'fol lows. Section 108.—The following personk Shall be deemed guilty of the offense bf "undue influence" and shall be pun ishable accordingly by a penalty of hot less than $200, nor more than $5, 000 and by imprisonment fot not tfe exceed two years in the pehiteritferjr; One—Every person who, directly olr indirectly, by hiihself or by any other person on his behalf, makes use of or threatens to make use of any force, violence or restraint, or inflicts or threatens the infliction by himself Or by or through any other person, Of any injury, damage, harm or loss of employment, position, trade, influence, Or in any manner practices intimida tion upon, or against any person, iü order to induce or compel such persoh to register or vote or refrain from re gistering or voting, or on account '%'f such having voted or refrained froAi voting at any election. Two—Every person who, by abduc tion, duress, or any fraudulent device or contrivance, impedes or otherwise interferes with the free exercise of the elective franchise, or thereby compels, induces or prevails upon any electÖr either to give or refrain from giving his vote at any election. It might be well for some of the man agers who arc seeking to over-ridr. Che rights of American citizens to read this law. Good Governor Anyhow. Montana seems certain to get a good governor no matter who wins at the polls, says the Libby News (Republi can.) There is no better man in thé state than David Folsom unless it should happen to be Joe Toole. Both are citizens who the state can point to with pride. Mr. Foison is an old tim er, has served Montana with distinc tion in the state senate, and justly ranks high as an honorable man arid able citizen. Mr. Toole is the bright est light democracy has ever had in the state. He is young, able, vigorous and eloquent. He served Montana with distinction in congress, a,rid afterwards honored the governor's office as much as it honored him. His political career was cut off before It reached its zenith by a dictum of the "Old Man" at Anaconda, who was "ferninst" him for vetoing a corpora tion bill. For this he long had the silent sympathy of thousands in this state who do not belong to the 'demo cratic party. Mr. Toole's record in public life is an open book, from which his friends take pride in redding aloud. Montana's gubernatorial chair has a lead pipe cinch on being filled by a worthy occupant. I One Change of Cara. Only between Montana points and Denver and eastern Colorado, by the new Northern Pacific-Burlington route via Billings and Alliance, Neb. Good train service all the way. 4L Consumption is robbed of its terrors by the fact that the best med ical authorities state that it is a curable disease; and one of the happy things about it is, that its victims rarely ever lose hopè. You know there are all sorb of secret nostrums advertised to cure consumption. Some make absurd claims. We only say that if taken in time and the laws of health are properly observed, SCOTT'S EMULSION will heal the inflammation of the throat and luntfs and nourish and strengthen the body so that it can throw off the disease. We have thousands of testi monials where people claim they have been permanently cured of this malady. So<- and Si.oo, all druggists. SCOTT 4 BOWNE, Chemists, New York.
