Kendall, Mont., Sept. 9.—The demo crats of the Kendall precinct held their primaries Saturday afternoon, at O'Leary's barber shop, for the pur pose of electing delegates to attend the county convention, which will be held in Lewistown on Sept. 10. An enthusiastic caucus was held, with Roy Sturdy, of Hilger, as chairman, and A. R. Thompson, also of Hilger, as clerk. The judges of election were M. J. O'Leary, Jos. Shumate and Clyde Combs.

The board of county commissioners last week granted the Kendall Gold Mining Co. a franchise giving this company a right of way to build a power line from their power plant on Warm Spring creek to Brooks and Hil ger. It is expressly stipulated in the lranchise that work must commence by Nov. 1, 1912. The news is hailed with joy by every resident of Hilger, for the problem of lights in the pros perous inland metropolis has been a drawback, and with the advent of elec tric lights, the town of Hilger will have accomplished a great step for ward in the line of civic improve ment. Once more has Kendall been visited by fire. On the night of Labor day, about 1 o'clock, the John Reeder resi dence, in the rear of the Durnen boarding house, took fire and was quickly burned to the ground. Two men were sleeping there and made a hasty escape, clad in their night rai ment. There had been much rain and the wind was favorable, so that the flames did not spread at all. Many people were still in Hilger, and those hurried back to Kendall, where it was found that a majority of those in town had peacefully slept without any no tion of any danger. A farewell party was given at the home of Mr. and Mrs. T. R. Matlock on Friday evening. The affair was in the nature of a surprise and was ar ranged by Mrs. Benton and Mrs O'Leary. Progressive whist was played at six tables and there were many who did not play. After the game it was found that Mrs. W. H. Burgess had made the highest score among the ladies, and she received a handsome china plate. Among the gentlemen, Fred McKay carried away the honors, and was awarded the o a prize. Mr. and Mrs. J. J. McLeod re ceived the consolation prizes. De licious refreshments of cakes and coffee were served. Among those pres ent were Messrs, and Mesdames Kerr, O'Leary, McKay, McLeod, Elling John son; Mesdames Burgess, Kertz, Alec Wilson, E. p. Durnen, Grant, Stamp er, McCormack and Benton; Misses Burgess, Dougherty, Murphy, Grant, Grace Grant, Mary Ann Richards and Durnen; Messrs. Fleming, Molloy, Mc Kiney, Burgess and Potts. Mr. and Mrs. Frank Roy were in town from their ranch on Salt creek Friday. Richard McKinney and Will Durnen were over from Hilger Sunday.

Flynn drove in from the Flynn ranch, west o fthe mountains, Friday. Judge Wasson ,of Hilger, spent the week-end in the gold camp. Henry Parrent and family were Ken dall visitors on Saturday evening. Chas. D. Smith, who formerly sided here, has returned to Kendall from Butte and will remain here. J. 11. Drinville, jr., and family moved back to Kendall last week and have taken the Danils house. E. 1'. Durnen and Owen Murphy re turned Sunday evening from a trip to the country to look up land locations.

Matlock and Mrs. Archie McCormack made a trip to th(> McCormack ranch, on Dog creek, Sunday. Joseph Plumb, of Lewistown; James Weaver, of Lewistown; and Clyde Combs and Joseph Mntgomery, of Hil ger, were Kendall visitors on Friday afternoon. SPORT Schalk a Comer. Ray Schalk, the young Sox catcher secured from Milwaukee for a price said to be $15,000, today looms up as a valuable addition to the Chicago club. The $15,000 beauty made good in sensational style In his first game with Chicago, which was against the Yankees. He tried lots of things and made them all go through. Two Yankees tried to steal second and were out by miles. He also caught one napper off third and broke up the New York attack In the fifth with a snap throw to Weaver, which found Chase slumbering. He didn't get much else besides a couple of brilliant putouts at the plate, a single, a double and a stolen base. Moreover, it was his initial chance to receive Walsh's pitch ing, and he did it perfectly. Ray hasn't his growth yet, but even now he looks worth the price, whatever it was. To see this youngster work behind the bag reminds one of the work of Archer and Kling. He has a world ol nerve, more confidence than that, and is a tower of strength, despite the fact that he isn't full grown. His work likely has won him the place behind the bat for some time to come. Pennant for Missoula. Missoula, Sept. 3.—Missoula, last year in last place when the Union as sociation's season was finished, wins this year's pennant, with Salt Lake second, Great Falls third, Ogden fourth, Butte fifth and Helena sixth. The season ends next Sunday, but the pennant race was practically settled today when Ogden defeated Salt Lake. The credit for the unusual showing made by the Missoula club, the High landers, in circuit parlance, is given to Manager Cliff D. Blankenship, who has held tue locals in first, place dur ing practically the entire season. Salt Lake has challenged the lead several times, but the Cooley club was never able to stay in front for any length of time. The Missoula club acquired a commanding lead early in the season and never experienced a serious slump. Aside from the pitching staff, the locals went through the season without a single change in lineup. Two pitchers, Zamloch and Bush, car ried the club during the greater part of the race. Both of tnese men have been sold into the American league, Zamloch going to Detroit and Bush to Philadelphia. Both will report this fall. Players Organize. New York, Sept. 5.—Major league baseball players formally launched their new protective organization to day. It is known as the National and American League Baseball fraternity, and its certificate of incorporation was signed by Supreme Court Justice De laney. According to the petition for incorporation, its object is to foster fraternal feeling among the players in the two big leagues. While the articles of incorporation have not been made public, it is be lieved the players generally intend for mutual protection to demand repre sentation of their brotherhood in the councils of organized labor. The call for the organization result ed from the difficulties of Ty Cobb, which precipitated a strike among the Detroit team in Philadelphia early in the season. Lords in the Making. Allan Dawson, a New York editor, says he was in London when the ques tion of making five hundred new lords was agitating England, and that he happened to be in the press gallery of the bouse of commons when the sub ject was under discussion.

One night a couple of traveling salesmen arrived in a sinail Kansas town and found the hotel crowded. Not a room was to he had. "I hate to disaccominodate you, gents," said the hotel proprietor, "hut even the pool table's occupied. But., say, see that, old church across the street? I bought it to build a new hotel on the site. If you don't mind, you can go over there and sleep in the pews. They're upholstered\ and they ain't bad sleepin' at all." The tired pair decided to try it. About one o'clock in the morning the hotel proprietor was awakened by; the loud clanging of the church bell j He got up, roused the porter, and told him to find out the trouble. In a few minutes the porter came back. "Well?" asked the owner, excitedly. "Party in pew 26 wants a gin ricky," was the answer. John Drew, the great American ac tor, had agreed, as a social duty, to escort a young French actress of much personal charm to a roof garden on her first visit to New York. The or chestra was playing a very melodious air as they entered, and after being ] seated the actress asked Mr. Drew the name of the selection. " T Love You, 1 Live You," replied Mr. Drew. "Yes, yes, I know," returned the French girl, with an appreciative glance of coquetry, "but ze tune zat zay play, Mlstalre Drew, vat ees de name of eet?" Henry Watterson, the Louisville journalist, told this story at a recent dinner party: "One day when I was the city editor of a small newspaper, a fine turkey was left at the office. We all hankered after the bird, but the editor finally claimed it, took it home and had it cooked for dinner. "The next day, a letter was handed in to him which he opened and read: "'Mr. Editor: 1 sent you a turkey yesterday which has been the cause of much dispute among us. To settle a bet, will you please state in tomor row's issue, what the turkey died of?' " Gelett Burgess, the author of books of sense and nonsense, at a dinner In New York, was urging a subtler use of words. j "Use words with delicate care," he said. "Observe all their subtle dis tinctions. Never write 'vision,' for in stance, when 'sight' is what you mean. "There's no difference between 'sight' and 'vision,' interrupted an edi tor. "No," said Mr. Burgess. "And yet, Herbert, when you and I passed each other on Forty-second street yester day, the girl I was with was a vision, while the one with you was a Bight."
