METIS A DRAW
BOXING PROGRAM PROVES VERY PLEASING TO A LARGE AUDIENCE. After twelve rounds of fast milling, Referee John McIntosh, of Butte, last Tuesday night decided the fight be tween Jack Rogers, of Salt Lake, and Tommy McCarthy, of Omaha, at the opera house Tuesday night, to be a draw. The decision met with unani mous approval, for while Rogers land ed by far the greater number of blows, McCarthy was always the aggressor and handed out about as much pun ishment as he received. Rogers, vet eran of a hundred ring battles, dis played splendid generalship, while his foot work was excellent and he out boxed the younger man. McCarthy has a terrific wallop and has a mighty dangerous hook. Rogers used an up percut with effect a number of times. On the whole, Rogers seemed to have a lead up to about the middle of the seventh. He feinted and apparently McCarthy was coming in when Rogers turned loose the hardest swing un corked by him during the night. Mc Carthy fooled him by jumping back in stead of coming in and Rogers, un able even to clinch, was carried off his feet by the force of his own blow and fell flat on his face, getting a very hard bump over the right eye. He was shaken up worse by this peculiar fall than by any blow strusk and took a count of nine before coming up. Al though a bit dazed, he staved off one of McCarthy's rushes and got into a clinch and the bell saved him from any damage. The men did not waste any time in sparring in the first round, which went at a furious pace, clever blocking and ducking saved both men from some hard swings, but Rogers caught McCarthy off his balance somewhat i and set him down with a stiff punch. The blow did little harm and McCar-1 thy was up instantly. Rogers had a 1 shade in this round. The second was even faster. Tommy managed to land a couple of stiff ones to the head and had a shade. The third opened with a series of exchanges and a lot of infighting, Rog ers apparently having the better of this and again getting a shade. The fourth was one of the most in teresting periods in the fight. McCar thy landed several times, but was un able to get his swing home, while Rog ers at least evened things up in the exchanges and again had a bit the bet ter of the infighting, but the pace told upon him. It was even in the fifth, neither .man doing any particular damage. In the sixth Rogers seemed to want to get into a clinch and then McCar thy appeared unwilling to break, al-j though he Beemed fresh and strong.: Rogers very cleverly ducked a number of swings and the, blows that went: home did not do particular damage to either man. Following the seventh, when Rogers tvas so badly shaken by his fall, i Tommy tore in from the start, but after, landing once, Rogers saw to it that in- ; fighting took up most of the round; and it ended with honors even. Tommy j opened the ninth with a light one to the face and Jack reached the chin. ' Rogers seemed to be stronger and held j his own in all the exchanges. It was even. McCarthy started to forcing things i again in the tenth and landed a stiff one to the face, while Rogers put in a couple of straight lefts to the face and a stiff uppercut. This was one round that Rogers took by a decisive lead. McCarthy tried hard for his swing in the eleventh, but could not connect! with it, although he did get in a couple, of stiff ones to the face, while Rogers placed several jabs, all of them light. McCarthy was strong, fresh and willing in the final round and kept try ing for his swing, but the wily Rogers was too elusive. Both men fought through this round at a fast pace and BEST WISHES ' We wish our many patrons A Merry Christmas and hope the year nineteen fourteen may be happy and prosperous for all* Judith Hardware Company again Rogers got in the greater num ber of blows. The first bout was a four-round af fair between Paddy O'Hem, of Lewis town, and Young Ferguson, of Great Falls. It started well, Ferguson show ing a lot of speed and landing several times, although Paddy took the round by an easy margin. In the second Paddy got his man's measure and Ferguson only saved him self by covering up. In the third Paddy scored a clean knock-down and had the Great Falls lad in a bad way. Ferguson did nothing in the fourth except to cover up, but even this did not save him from a lot of punish ment. He was so clearly and com pletely outclassed that Paddy, as he al ways does under sucu circumstances, held back, and McIntosh stopped the fight to prevent absolutely unneces sary punishment, giving the. fight to O'Hern. Cottams and Chapman, "the fighting chauffeur," furnished the semi-windup. Cottams, who weighed 200 pounds, was over 30 pounds heavier than the Cleve land colored boxer and during the first round was very aggressive and showed that he had a wicked punch. It re quired all of Chapman's cleverness to keep out of range and the round was even. In the second Chapman showed the class that won for him the Ohio cham pionship. He. soon put over a very hard one to the face and a moment later landed a swing to the corner of the jaw that swept Cottams off his feet, dazed and so badly shaked that he got to his corner and tossed up the towel himself. A packed house witnessed the bouts and the program, which was arranged by Henry Irslinger, was the best of the kind ever put on here. Sailor Ed Petrosky, who on Wed nesday night defeated Leo Benz at Butte, sent a challenge to the winner and there is a chance, that Rogers and the San Francisco fighter may meet here. THE AMERICAN HERODOTUS. Francis Parkman's Writings Likened to Those of "Father of History." Very important in our country's an nals is this 16th day of September, for on that day of the year 1823 was born Francis Parkman, our most bril liant historical writer, the man who well deserves the title of the "Ameri can Herodotus." Parkman was born in Boston, and after a full course at Harvard and a course at law traveled for a consider able time in Europe, after which he returned to American to prepare him self for the work that was to make him immortal—the story of the rise and fall of the French dominion in America. For this all-important work Park man was well-nigh perfectly fitted. A great reader from his youth, he added immensely to his stores of information while at college. His tour of Euroue gave him the wider view of men that is so essential to the impartial his torian, and his study of the law gave to his mind the calm, judicial poise which was to aid him so greatly in forming his estimates of men and events. It was because of this thor ough preparedness, assisted by cer tain natural endowments, that Park man was enabled to complete his monumental task, and complete it in a way to justify his fellow historian, John Fiske, in saying of him that he was "one of the most picturesque his torians since Herodotus, and an in vestigator of the highest order for thoroughness and accuracy," and in adding, "the presence of a sound po litical philosophy, moreover, is felt in all his works." Parkman's works are among the most delightful productions of the hu man mind. They are real histories that are to be depended on for theii truthfulness; and at the same time they are so charmingly written that no novel is more entertaining. His characters move across the stage witt a naturalness and power that capti vate us, and the driest events are, bj his genius, literally transfigured be fore us.—Rev. T. B. Glynn, in the New York American. ooooooooooooooooo O o O AT THE THEATER8 O o ooooooooooooooooo The Bijou.

Alaska is shown by the following item from the report of the teachers in the! United States school at Shishmaref on the Seward peninsula, Alaska, on the shore of the Bering sea near the Arc tic circle: "The quickest way to reach the hearts of these Eskimos is to teach the little children and let the parents see that you love the children and want to help them. The older people responded splendidly whenever asked to cooperate in any manner that con cerned the little ones. "We have tried to show the natives that cleanliness is the enemy of sick ness and that filth is a breeder of dis ease. A baby suffering from some form of skin disease proved a useful object lesson. The baby came from a dirty home of the old type and its mother was of the old regime that knew not the virtues of soap and wa ter. It is difficult to imagine a more distressing object than that baby when its mother brought it over for treat ment. Its arms, legs, and body were covered with Immense scabs, and when she removed the little fur bon net its head was seen to be in similar condition. It was given a thorough bath in warm water and hydrogen peroxide. The mother thought the hydrogen peroxide was 'plenty strong medicine' when she saw the white fuzz spout up wherever it touched the child's body. We impressed very strongly upon the mother that the filthy rags that clothed the baby must not be put on, and when she said she had no others we told her she must make some or the baby would never get well.

Whereas before she had been a sickly, crying baby, today the child is well, strong, and happy, and, above all, cean. That the mother was suffleienty impressed with the impor tance of cleanliness was shown in the fact that her only subsequent request was for soap to keep the baby and its clothes clean, so it would be 'no sick.' This case made quite a stir in the vil lage, and the mothers kept the babies much cleaner than before. The chil dren would come to me with cuts and ask for the 'clean medicine.' '' Secrets of Flour. New York Sun: Here is a secret that many housewives do not know and even some professional bakers do not understand. Flour should be kept in a dry, well-ventilated place. The temperature should be about 70. To make good bread flour should be aged. That is, it should be kept dry and preferably where the air can reach it. Some persons warm a sack of flour and think that this will dry and age it, but such treatment does not reach the middle of the flour. Experiments show that when flour is aged properly there is a slight loss of moisture, but the flour will absorb more water. In one test a freshly ground sack of flour after 60 days lost a little over one pound in weight, but it gained so much in absorption that it made a gain of several pounds in weight of dough over the original weight. The gluten, which is the life of the flour, also becomes more elastic and the flour grows whiter. There is no better way for the house keeper than to keep a barrel or sack of flour where it will be dry and ex posed to the air and also to keep a quantity of flour sifted and ready for use. Worship a Sacred Tooth. Tit-Bits: At Kandy, in Ceylon, is kept Buddha's tooth, which is the ob ject of the unbounded reverence of more than 400,000,000 people. When this holy molar was brought to Ceylon in the sixteenth century Kandy was only a mountain village. Now thousands of pilgrims go every year to the gorgeous temple where the tooth reposes, bringing gifts of every kind, gold and silver ornaments, coins, jewels and even fruit and flowers. The kings of Burma and Siam send annual contributions toward the support of this temple that holds the sacred relic, which has a rather strange history.

Fit these closely together, four square and four tiers high and sweep all cracks full of snow. Pack flax straw tightly around and over ice. Flat on the ground make a square frame of 4x4's, 12 feet long. On this erect 8-foot rafters, 3 feet apart. Sheath this with plenty of space between the boards. Then cover and fill in the ends with flax straw. There, you are—six tons of cold-storage comfort for the hot spots of the year.

J. MORROW, Manager. It is said to have been the left eye tooth of Buddha and to have been taken from his ashes 2,500 years ago. For centuries it was the marriage dow er going with certain favored princes. In the fourth century after Christ it was taken from India, then the Mala bars secured it. It was afterward cap tured by the Portuguese, who took it to Goa, where it was burned in 1560 by the archbishop in the presence of the viceroy of India. But a spurious tooth had to be pro I ■ • •!. vided to effect an international mar riage, and the molar of a wild boar or ape was used. . Its dimensions show that it could not be a man's, for it is two Inches long and one inch in diameter. On Important occasions it is dis played, but only at a distance. It is sometimes carried in the procession on the back of an elephant, but while in the temple it reposes on a massive silver table, encrusted with gems and festooned with jeweled chains.
