Mr. McCall's visit to the city was primarily for the purpose of arranging for the es tablishment of a school in his town.

The Chief Dangers Lie In Panic and Overexertion. Lot the man who is lost in the woods be very careful not to overexert him self. His chief dangers lie In panic and overexcrtlon, and, though he may be In a great hurry to find shelter, 1 must warn him to go slowly. Two miles an hour, on an average, through the snow In the woods Is all that a man In his condition will be able to stand without overfatlgue and Its at tendant dangers, overheating and per spiration. By exercising caution a man may live through a week of what he is undergoing. To make this article brief, however, we shall suppose that he regains the road by the afternoon of the llrst day. He doesn't yet know, of course, Just where he Is. He should examine the tracks of the person who last passed that way. It being afternoon, he must follow In the direction taken by the last passing vehicle or team, as shel ter will be nearest in that direction. Had It been morning he would have taken the opposite direction, as who ever made the tracks must have come from the place where he obtained shel ter the previous night.—A. II. Garleton in Outing Magazine. The Cure. He talked too much far too much. Already he had driven his taciturn companion nearly wild, lie had touch ed on subjects Innumerable, discours ed with volubility on anything and everything. Onward went the unend ing stream of speech. And all the while the voluble one danced about and fidgeted and squirmed until the other was well nigh beside himself with disgust. Finally the walking dictionary took from bis pocket a cigarette. "Pm a great smoker," he remarked. "Yes, I'm a great smoker great smok er. I'm one of those nervous men, you know; one of those high strung, restless fellows who always must have something In tlielr mouths. Yes, you see, I'm so nervous, ns I said, that I simply must—yes, must—lmve some thing all the time In my mouth." "Try a gag!" suggested his com panion.—New York Times.

LEGISLATORS ARE DOWN TO BUSINESS MANY BILLS BEING INTRO DUCED—COMMTITEES ARE NAMED. Special to the Democrat. Helena, Jan. 12.—If the first week is any criterian, tin- present session of the state legislature will lie one of tin; busiest ones ever assembled in the Treasure state. Bills have been pour ing in and among them are a number ol the utmost importance and which will require considerable discussion before they come tip for final passage. Governor Reads Message. Governor Norris read his message to the joint assembly beginning at 2 o'clock last Tuesday afternoon. The message was somewhat lengthy but lull of "meat." That is, it was not unnecessarily drawn out and contain ed many valuable suggestions for the guidance ol the legislators in their work during the next two months.

King intro duced a Dill to prohibit the selling of pools on races run on tracks outside of the state and to prohibit the main tenancc of places where pools are bought and sold. The big light of the session is likely to be precipitat ed when this bill comes up for action. The business men of Butte are be hind the bill but the pool room in terests of the state will have a pow erful lobby at the capital to light against the measure. McCoy introduced a bill for the election of United States senators by direct vote and Christler, of Choteau, introduced a Dil 1 to establish a state publicity bureau. McCone introduced a bill relating to the deposit and con trol of public moneys in the posses sion of county and city treasurers and to provide for the payment of interest on deposits of public moneys.
