ARE DUMFOUNDED FATHER STACK, WELL-KNOWN PRIEST OF BILLINGS AND GLENDIVE, WEDS. Billings, June 4.—Word has been re ceived in this city by members of the family of the bride of the marriage in Chicago of the Rev. Father Thomas Stack, a Roman Catholic priest of the diocese of Montana, formerly rector of St. Patrick's church in this city, and recently *of the Catholic church at Glendive, to Mrs. Mary Ross, daugh ter of the late Dr. J. H. Rinehart, a prominent Billings physician. The apostate priest was largely in strumental in the construction of St. Patrick's church in Billings, one of the finest churches in Montana, and until his resignation of his charge in Glendive he was supposed to be do ing good work in building up that parish until a dispute over money matters led to his resignation of that charge. The mother of the bride was pres ent at the wedding, which was per formed by Rev. Dr. Shaw of the Sec ond Presbyterian church of Chicago. At the time that Father Stack re signed from the church at Glendive he was engaged in a dispute over money matters with a member of the parish. The priest declared in the pulpit that he intended to carry the case into the courts and as he did not wish to drag the church into the mat ter he would resign his charge. The priest shortly after left for Chi cago without having signified any in tention of either retiring from the priesthood or of foreswearing his church. Mrs. Rinehart, mother of Mrs. Ross,' and a brother, Hills Rinehart of Columbus, O., left with Mrs. Ross for the Illinois city, where they met Stack, and the wedding took place at the Second Presbyterian church. Friends of the Rinehart family say that they understand that Stack in tends to enter the ministry of the Methodist church. Catholic circles are dumfounded because there has been no Intimation by tne priest of intention to renounce! the vows which he assumed when he ! entered the priesthood. WINTER JOYS ON RIVER NILE. Wonders or' Egypt Offer Continual Re freshment of Body and Mind. Philadelphia Ledger: Without doubt the pleasantest place in which to spend a non-wintry winter is Egypt— the banks of the Nile. Winter on the Nile, indeed, is more like an ideal summer, with warm days, which are yet not exhausting, and with cool eve nings and early mornings which pos sess some marvelous qualities of j freshness and invigorating power of which evenings and early mornings elsewhere seem bereft. For complete rest and refreshment of mind and body, I think, after con siderable experience of travel, that I should send anyone to Egypt in pref erence to any other part of the world. I should not recommend much time being spent in Cairo, as, interesting city though it is in the older and na tive parts, it is not characteristically Egyptian, and does not, unless, per chance, for the incorrigible town lov er, possess anything approaching the nameless charm of the Nile and up per Egypt.

Panama-Pacific International Exposition San Francisco 1915 1 1 1 Visit Glacier National Park June 15-October t ing about a fortnight, from Cairo to Assuan, this abundant life of the Nile| is ceaselessly in evidence. In sum mer, the dead season, it might be less | apparent, but in winter or spring the ] ! signs of people, habitations, domestic : animals, cultiation, wherever the eye; j rests, are striking beyond all else in ! the Egyptian landscape. In the win ter there are crops to be sown, wa-; tered and tended, and by early spring. the first of these crops are ready for | harvest. < Great golden masses of corn are al-1 ready to be seen near Luxor, and bar ley already bearded even near Cairo; j tomatoes are fit for gathering, great i purple-black aubergines ripe for ! plucking, opium poppies in flower, field after field of them of all colors; and above all, there are onions every where. The winter is not past, indeed, be fore the fellah is planting in the un covered stretches of rich black Nile . mud and in sandy spits where the larger wild birds congregate the seeds of the watermelons, which in summer are almost the staff of his life. To see those watermelon plants from day to day used to remind us of an old nursery rhyme, three lines of which! ran thus: And with the gardening man, With the watering can, Says, "gracious! how fast he grows!" For they grow almost visibly, fostered by the hot sunshine and nourished by the fat Nile mud. It is doubtless this ceaseless life and activity of the Nile, and not mere ly the sense of vast limitless space, the boundless horizon, nor the at mospheric effects changing with the time of day, which prevent the Egyptian scene from ever wearying or becoming monotonous. I do not think I speak for myself alone when I say that I have spent day after day in the bows of a Nile steamer doing nothing whatever but watching the scenes passed through without for a moment finding the days too long. Apart from the life actually on the river, with the passage of boats bear ing the peculiar long Nile sails, manned by bawling Arabs and laden with strange cargoes of water jugs, sugar cane and maize, there is the life on the shore itself—the life of a peo ple unfamiliar and yet familiar, be cause they seem to have come out of the pages of the family Bible, at w'hose illustrations we used to look in our childhood; a people doing things as they did them thousands of years ago; living a life which we see to be real, because it goes on before our eyes, and which yet seems a life of long ago. The Modern City's Plan. Chicago Post: There was a time when the city planning movement touched the problem of transportation very gingerly. About the railroad company hung an awful air of "touch me not." The most that the timid city planners could hope to do with the railroad company was to persuade it to plant a few shrubs about the depot and to hire a one-legged switch man to keep the grass cut. But now, praise be, the city planning movement is growing to be what its name im-! i plies. It is not afraid to move a rail road around when it needs to. In deed, the very first problem which it [attacks in a given locality is the prob lem of transportation. How do travel ers get into the city? How do the workers get to their work? How do the commuters arrive and depart? Off Duty. (Chicago Record-Herald.) I "I thought your father was blind," said the legless beggar's child. "He is, but he's havin' his vacation ! this week," the other mendicant's | daughter replied. ] | < VOTE ON OFFICERS - THOSE WHO WOULD HAVE WON m.T COB nctr»T m BUT FOR DEFEAT OF Dl VISION PLAN.

There were present Mayor Mathews and Aldermen Combs, David and Hersey, Alderman Bannan being absent. The minutes of the meeting held May 22 were read and approved. Mayor Mathews re ported having arranged with Attorney Chas. J. Marshall for legal advice to the mayor and members of the coun cil. Mrs. Charles McNaughton, who learned of the sudden disappearance of her mother, Mrs. John Christian, at Minneapolis, left Saturday morn ing in company with her husband, foreman of the Stone Barn ranch, south of Moore, for that place. Since their departure it has been learned that Mrs. Christian's body has been found in the Mississippi river. A weed which if it gets a foothold would wreck havoc to the crops in Fergus county, has been discovered in fields near Moore and also on the benches in this vicinity. Specimens of this noxious weed have been brought into the city, but at the pres ent time are not fully developed and can soon be exterminated if the farm ers will immediately destroy them. It is what is known as the "fan weed" and one of the greatest pests known to agriculture. The plant seeds sev eral times in a season, the first crop now being almost ripe, and unless eradicated at once Will spread rapidly.

New York Evening Sun: That many of the fashions which became famous in their day and have come down to our own were due to chance or ac cident is now a matter of history. Interesting are the stories told of the odd origin of certain styles which an unsuspecting world probably thought were intentionally chosen for their beauty or comfort. The courts of Europe have been es pecially noted for their sheeplike fol lowing of an idea introduced by the reigning monarch, when frequently that Idea was evolved to conceal one of the ruler's physical defects. One of the kings of France came to the throne a child of 10; he wore his hair in long ringlets all about the head. Immediately men and women colffed themselves likewise. The same mon arch was bald at 30, and being a lover of all that was beautiful and feminine, he ordered the elaborate wig which was taken up and reveled in during many reigns. As for the hair being caught in the back and held with a small bow of ribbon, the style beloved of men sev eral hundred years ago, little girls are said to have originated the idea »i>= oe»iu iu ua,c uiigiuaiea me iaea, and accidentally. One day a court leader happened to be visiting, and his hostess was late arriving in the salon. The young man fell asleep I and the two children of the noble lady, creeping in, saw the guest and to play a trick tied his hair all to gether. The little girls, fearing to be ! caught, ran away and the young man never knew of the curious picture the back of his wig presented. Other visi tors discovered the garnish, laughed at the r,bbon - and the young count declared barefacedly that he had so fastened his hair and meant to keep 1 it always so from his neck and j shoulders. Within a few days the en j tire nobility found the scheme an ex [ cellent one and adopted the idea, Tbe pannier was introduced by a f l ueen to cover a misplaced hipbone, It was an actress who finally threw t llP nflTHllPr flftoP it Vl o /I hn/\n the pannier aside after it had been fashionable half a century. One eve ning, just before she was to appear on the stage, the actress discovered that one pannier was entirely drenched in oil; the dress, it was 'bought, was spoiled by a rival. The actress and her maid quickly —'thought the matter over, and both to (Tpthpr Mlliclrlv f gether quickly tore off the offending member of the costume. The actress donned the dress, but, of course, it presented a ridiculous appearance. So the other pannier was removed, and the slim young woman appeared on the stage more supple and grace ful than ever. The audience at first gasped, then admired, and the next clay all of London (the scene took place there) decfded to imitate the actress and here severe skirt. The origin of the beauty spot is no less interesting. The Duchess de Montmorillon suffered with a boil on the cheek and put on a bit of black mixture over night said to be heal ing. In the morning she either for got to wash her face or did not use enough care—so the story goes—and the inattentive or malicious servant allowed her mistress to appear "be fore the world" with her face spotted. Powdered and perfumed, Montmorillon received her callers, who found the black spot charming, so much so that before night they had anointed their faces with the black ointment. To come down to present times, the feather boa was originated less than 20 years ago in Boston. In an idle moment an apprentice in a feather establishment sewed the discarded hits and ends of poor plumes to gether and strung them about her neck. The other girls laughed at the trimming, the head of the department found it pretty, and the order was given that no castaways in the form of plumes be thrown in the waste basket. All parts of the plume were kept, sewed on to a ribbon, the en tile thing curled and long ribbon loops put at each end, and the feather boa was the success of the season. The uncurled plume, so fashionable in Paris a few years ago and revived l ecently in another manner, was pure ly the result of an accident. The biggest race of the year, the Grand 1 lix d'Auteuil, was on, and women were there dressed within an inch of their lives. A fearful rainstorm came up and people were drenched. Plumes that had left home finely curled were wet and each spiral stood apart. It was not pretty, the effect, but it was original, and one of the milliners, not wishing to take the trouble to have the plumes of all his customers re curled, advised them to allow the gar nish to remain as it was. That week following the Grand Prix d Auteuil saw nothing but straight spiral plumes, and women liked them so much that before the following Sunday, when the Grand Prix d Longchanip was to be. women who had curled plumes had the wave taken out, so that they might appear like the other fashionables. For more than a year the defrissee plume was sought. As a whole, fashion is, like In this instance, only the result ol an accident. Sometimes it is the out come of an experiment. But like the it is capricious and change able and capable of almost anything within reason. 1913, file in this office his duly roborated application to contest secure the cancellation of your Hi stead, Entry No. 010689, Serial N made May 27th, 1910, for NW%, Usual Sequence.
