Harlowton Will Boom.
Musselshell News: Harlowton will boom this year! The significance of the deal by which the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railroad acquired the con trol of the Graves lots in Harlowton is not yet entirely apparent, but enough is known to make it certain that the railroad people plan to boom the town in real earnest in the very early part of spring. Among other things, as soon as trains can be gotten into operation regularly from the east to Harlow ton, the road will begin running a series of excursions to this point. Harlowton, the Musselshell valley and the Judith basin will be ex tensively advertised, and hundreds of frrmers, land buyers and others seeing business openings in this sec tion will be brought in. This town and section cannot fail to benefit wonderfully as a result. The gentlemen who are interested in the proposed electric light and water system for the town are ac tively at work upon the project, and the assurance is given out that work upon the enterprise will start within a few weeks. Once inaugurated, con struction work will be pushed with .all vigor. Scores of men will be given employment for several months, as it is planned to have both utilities ready to be offered to the community at the earliest date pos sible. The Milwaukee will bring in a large number of employes for the machine shops, the roundhouse, divi sion headquarters, and to make up t'..e necessary operating forces. It is estimated that the families among these employes will be sufficient in number to require the building of from 75 to 80 residences before the end of the year. There will be many other resi dences required for other classes of people than those employed. A fine hotel and several business blocks will be erected. In fact, the building op erations for the year will exceed those of 1907 by a very handsome margin. THE HALL OF FAME. William R. Taylor, governor of Wis consin from 1874 to 1876, has been ad mitted to the Old People's borne, near Madison. Lord Curzon. former viceroy of In Ala, has declined all offers to stand as l parliamentary candidate for the city of London. King Edward is turning his atten tion to beautifying Windsor park, which since the death of the prince con tort in 1861 has been sadly neglected. Kubelik Is accident insured for $160, D00; Paderewski holds a policy for $50, D00; Lillian Nordica has the same amount, and Anna Held holds $100,000 worth. Sir Alfred Charles Harmsworth, pro prietor of the London Daily Mall and other English newspapers; Sir Michael Hieks-Beaeb, former chancellor of the exchequer, and Baron Tredgar have been made viscounts. Philip Brushart of Burlington, Mich., Is nearly 101 years old, but is aston ishingly spry. On his last birthday he turned a handspring for some friends and proposes to duplicate the feat on the next similar occasion. Aoki, the first Japanese ambassador to Washington, will probably bring with him to this country his wife, who is a German lady. He was educated in Germany and was sent to that country several times as minister. M. Marcillac is the latest aspirant to attempt to reach the north pole in a balloon. He figures on carrying a wire less telegraphy apparatus and an elec tric motor capable of supplying power for 200 hours. The start is to be made from Spitzbergen. Henry Holmes, formerly musical in structor to Queen Alexandra of Eng land and for the last seventeen years a resident of San Francisco, is dead. He was born in London in 1839 and was creator of the celebrated orchestra of the Royal College of Music. State Senator Ernest R. Ackerman of Plainfield, whose collection of post age stamps is the finest in New Jersey and one of the largest private collec tions in tbe United States, is the first American to make an entry for the International exhibition to be held from May 23 to June 1 in Horticultural hall, London. Rev. Dr. Samuel Findlay of Akron, O., recently visited Washington for the express purpose of hearing Senator Dick make a speech. Dr. Findlay is superintendent of a Sunday school in Akron, where years ago Senator Dick was one of his "boys." He says he enjoyed tbe unique experience of hear ing the senator speak. Burying the Dead. Boyertown, Pa., Jan. 18.—This was another day of funerals resultant from last Monday night's theater fire, in which 178 persons lost their lives. Sixty funerals took place, and so great was the demand for under takers and hearses that additional as sistance and vehicles had to be press ed into service from neighboring places. There will be no regular church services tomorrow. The en tire day will be given over to the funeral work. Standard Oil Case. New York, Jan. 16.—With the tes timony this afternoon of William R.

The situation is seldom quite as bad as it might be. Happy is the spirit that recognizes this truth and takes comfort to itself in the thought of what Is spared. The Irishman whose tale of calamity is related in the Birmingham (England) Post belongs to this choice class of fortunates. Cassidy had just bead injured in a blast. "Poor b'y!" exclaimed O'Hara con solingly. " 'Tis tough luck to have yer hand blowed off." "Och! Faith, it might have been worse," replied Cassidy. "Suppose Oi'd had me week's wages in It at tbe tolme!" Pulverised Diamond. According to the Mohammedans of southern India, pulverized diamond is the least painful, the most active and the most certain of all poisons. Ac cording to "Wilke's History," the pow der of diamonds is kept on hand (by the wealthy only presumably) as a last resource. But a belief in the poison ous character of the diamond also ex isted in Italy in the sixteenth cen tury. Yellow Fever. There is a marked peculiarity about yellow fever which distinguishes it from most epidemics. It is essentially a disease of a hot climate, and it takes a certain amount and duration of heat to awaken it to life. It is said that it can never prevail where Indian com will not ripen. Tbe Poor Poeto. "Poets are bora, sir," said the bard to the editor. "Yes, I know they weren't hatched from duck eggs," answered the editor. "But the question is, Why are they bora?"—Cleveland Leadar. Wanted Her Reformed. Mamma—Why did you pray that God should stop your sister from telling stories? Small Son—Because she prom ised me she wouldn't tell that I took the cakes, and she did tell. There are more talkers than think ers. Here you have the solution of gossip. SHORT STORIES. In the United States 1,620,000,000 gal lons of coffee are drunk every year. The Naval Young Men's Christian as sociation is making preparations to en tertain the sailors of the navies of the world which will center at Jamestown, Va., in 1907. The largest United States mail ever sent out of New York was the Christ mas and New Year's mail for England and France, taken just before the holi days by the big liner Philadelphia, con sisting of 3,226 sacks. The state department has been using a distinctive cord for tying up its of ficial papers for over sixty years. It is known as "official cord" and is about the usual size and is made of silk of three colors intertwined, red, white and blue. Dr. C. A. Peterson is exhibiting be fore the Missouri Historical society the largest stone ax ever discovered among the Indian tribes of this coun try, and it is believed to be tbe heavi est in the world. It is owned by George M. Huss of Bircbwood, Wis. STAMP ACTS. Japan has jUBt issued a three sen stamp to commemorate the amalgama tion of the Japanese and Korean postal departments. It is printed in carmine, tbe jubilee and national color. A well known English philatelist claims that the five shilling stamp of New Zealand is the handsomest stamp in existence. It pictures tbe famous Mount Cook and is printed in a rich shade of vermilion. Brazil through its more than sixty years of stamp issuing has managed to get along without using watermark ed paper, but very recently three values of the current set appeared on paper containing the letters "Estados Unldos Brazil." Tbe Sydney (N. S. W.) Philatelic club has made preparations for tbe celebra tion of tbe jubilee of the five pence green, the "grand old stamp of philate ly," having been in use continuously for fifty years without surcharge, change of color or design. This re markable record has not been paral leled. ENGLISH ETCHINGS. In England, where fads and fashions change slowly and the roads are good, bicycle manufacturers are still doing a good business. A Liverpool man of wealth supplies envelopes free to all business houses willing to permit him to print upon the backs texts from the Scriptures. He spends $2,000 or $3,000 a year in this curious way. The Nelson statue in Trafalgar square, London, is already decaying. It is found that the only stone that re sists the foggy atmosphere in London is Portland limestone, of which 81 Paul's cathedral is built. | Legal Notices. J Sheriff's Sale. John M.
