WILLIAM JUBY OUT ONLY FIVE MINUTES Several Civil Cases Disposed of— Court Will be in Session Most of Next Week. Jack Goodson, charged with murder in the second degree for the killing of Win. Parks at his cabin on Three Mile on May 7 of this year, was placed on trial last Friday before J udge Web ster. County Attorney Baker prosecuted the case and Geo. T. Baggs conducted the defense. The jury consisted of George Johnson, John Printz, J. M. Burch, Joseph Wagnei, G. M. Mc Kinney, T. L. Adair, H. M. Butler, W. O. Fisk, F. E. Gage, J. C. Ward and S. O. Chaffin. The testimony was to the effect that Goodson had long been annoyed by persons burglarizing his cabin. He concluded to keep watch and one day caught Parks in the act of robbing his cabin. Covering the culprit with his gun he ordered him to surrender, but Parks attempted to escape and Goodson shot him dead. The jury after a few minutes delib eration brought in a verdict of quittai. For brevity the case probably holds the record of all murder trials in Mon tana. Court was called at 9 o'clock Friday morning and at 9:30 the ex amining of the talesmen as to their qualifications as jurors began. The jury was secured at 11 o'clock and the taking of the testimony then began. At 2:30 the testimony was all in and at 4:30 the inotructioas had been read to the jury. The arguments'were con eluded at 5:45 and the case given to the jury. Almost immediately they asked that they be given their supper aud the judge, thinking that an all night session was before them, grant ed their request. It was 7:45 when the jury returned to the room to consider the case and ten minutes later they were back in the court room with a verdict of not guilty. Coart News. Elisha B. Martin vs. Geo.

Missoula, Nov. 21.—The Rocky Mountain Bell Telephone company has the material for the construction of a rural route system, which is to be extended from Missoula to Hamilton, taking in almost all the ranch houses. Work upon the construction of the line will be commenced at an early date and the work will be pushed to a speedy completion. The service is to be the finest in the country, and it will be a big thing for Missoula and all western Montana, The service is one that has been long contemplated, but it has not been until recently that definite plans were decided upon. Division Superinte ndent A. G. Mil ler of the company says that the com pany is spending upwards of $50,000 in Missoula and adjacent territory. He did not know just how soon work would be commenced upon the con struction of the rural district system but it will be in the near future, The new service is to be put into the home of every rancher who may desire it at the nominal cost of $24 per year, which is the cheapest afforded anywhere in the country. For the raral service small ex changes will be established at various places along the Bitter Root line, where special operators will be em ployed, giving the very best possible service.

Doesn't Respect Old Age, it's shameful when youth fails to show proper respect for old age, but just the contrary in the case of Dr. King's New Life Pills.

KITTIE OSTERMEYER, 4 2t County Supt A VOICE FROn THE VANQUISHED. (From the Wash ing ton Post.) Missouri's gone republican. There aint much more to say. I'm waitin' now to see the world turn 'round the other way. Considering what has happened, 'twon't surprise me in the least To see the sun rise in the west instead of in the east. I half expect to see the sky come down and rain ascend— There really ain't no tellin' where the thing is goin' to end. I can't find proper language for ex pressi' my dismay; Missouri's gone republican. There ain't much more to say. It isn't any wonder that my courage kind 'o fails; 'Twas hard when West Virginia went a-waverin' in the scales, 'Twas even worse to realize the music of the band Took on a special, meanin' when it played "My Maryland." But when you start a-tumblin', why, there ain't no way to tell Just when you finally have reached the bottom of the well. Give 'em Tennessee and Texas to in crease the strange array, Missouri's gone republican. There ain't much more to say. Piles, Varicose Veins and Ulcers, Female diseases cured without use of knife.
