McKay & Gray, Gar neill, Mont. l-26-4t* Only a few men are employed tak ing out coal at the Spring Creek mines just now, owing to the fact that Mr. Gebo's contract with the Montana Railroad has expired. By far the greater part of the output has been going to the railroad, the local demand is not sufficient just now to permit the property to be worked to its capacity. However, it is likely that the railroad company will short ly renew its contract and in that event the normal number of men will at once be employed in the mine. The man who waited for rates to come down before he insured has al ready lain in the cemetery several years. His wife makes vests and his children are scattered. He had his way, they must go theirs. It was in his power and he had the opportunity to insure. Morton and Martin, in surance agents. 2 - 2 - 2t At the M. E. Church.

Rescuing ■ Camel. The camel has been called the "ship of the desert." Like the ship, he may be enpsized, and In that predicament he is helpless. His manner of lying down to rest Is to fold his legs be neath his body. If he happens to roll upon his side he cannot recover his feet again. This Infirmity of the ani mal is mentioned by the Count de Les dain in the account of his journey, "From Pekin to Sikkim:" "The cant van was made up of cam els. I had brought some new ones and had no idea of taking any other animals into a country largely com posed of loose sand. An amusing in cident marked the beginning of our march. One camel, awkward as they all are. managed to tumble into a ditch of thick mud between the road and a whenttield. When once fallen a camel can only get up again if It Can arrange its feet conveniently un der it and If the ground is nearly fiat. "In this case it was not so. The ani mal lay with all four feet in the air, perfectly resigned and incapable of a single movement to help itself. To draw it out took more titan half an Uour and required the united efforts of many men with cords passed under the camel's back." Welcoming the Traveler. I have always had a good opinion of the enterprise of the life insurance agent. It has seemed to me that the busy bee is a lazy ne'er-do-well com pared with him. Recently this opin ion lias been strengthened. An old colored servant living in a neighboring family made his first trip away from home and visited relatives in New York. On his return to Louisiana he was asked what he did while in the north. "Well, 'rnong uddah t'ings I done tnk out a life insurance policy fo' fi' hun'ed dollahs." "Why, what on earth do you want with a life insurance policy? You have no wife or children!" "Dat's what I done tol' him, but I had t' take it, all de same. De agent man, lie met me at de boat landin', an' he said I'd haf t' have one or he'd sen' me back home. lie warn't gwine fo't' 'low met' land if I didn't buy one. Dey don't 'low no one in New Yawk 'less dey lias a 'suhanee policy!"— Woman's Home Companion. His Saturday Night. Tlie pretty, broad faced, blue eyed woman was telling how it happened that her husband came home so late of a Saturday night. "When he goes to get shaved for Sunday," she said, "lie waits so long for the line that gets there before him that he goes to sleep in the chair while he is being shaved. Then the barber, who is a friend of his, fi ls him sleep as long as lie likes after he has fin ished with him. But I don't see how he can fall asleep with a dangerous razor scraping all over Ids face. I couldu't. Could you?" "It isn't the most plausible excuse I ever heard," said one to whom the question was put, "but it ought to pass on account of its originality."—New York Press. Coloring an Abyssinian Bride. Western brides liave an easier time than their Abyssinian sisters. On the occasion of her marriage an Abyssin ian bride lias to change her skin. From ebony she has to become tlie color of cafe au lait. To accomplish this the expectant bride is shut up in a room for three months.
