ONE OF LEWISTOWN'S
PLANT OF THE MONTANA FLOUR MILLS COMPANY IN THIS CITY. One of the important and growing industries of Lewistown is the plant of the Montana Flour Mills company. The company was incorporated in 1911 and has an authorized capital of $500, 000, of which $400,000 has been paid in. It took over the old Judith Basin company's mill here and this year com pleted the changes necessary there to make it into a first-class plant. A very conveniently arranged office building was erected adjoining the mill, and un der the very able management of C. R. McClave its business has assumed such proportions that the plants here and at Harlowton are working 24 hours a day, requiring three shifts. In the Lewistown mill a force of twenty-five men is now steadily employed. The market for the products of the. com pany is constantly widening and they can compete with the output of the best mills in the country. The com pany will very soon have installed at the Lewistown plant a complete lab oratory, where the tests can be made omre conveniently than at present. The Harlowton mill is already pro vided with such a laboratory. Mr. McClave became associated with Mr. Warr in 1904, when they con structed at Moore the first grain ele vator erected in the Judith basin. He has ever since devoted himself to the grain business and is recognized as an authority on all matters pertaining to wheat and its products. The success achieved and the development of the business is chiefly due to Mr. Mc Horse Blankets Make your horse comfort able with a good blanket. We have them in a great va riety.

Raymond Barnes, 22 years old, of this city, died from the effects of be ing shocked by electricity two weeks ago. While working on a transformer at a powerhouse of the Wilmington Southern Traction company, near New castle. his spectacles slipped partly off and caught on a heavily charged wire. As he was standing on the ground a connection was formed. An electrical flash burned him from the face almost to his waist. He also inhaled the flames.

FORTUNE8 IN 8AUSAGE8. 400 Different Kinds of "Wuret" Are Made in Westphalia. Westphalia, in Prussia, is the home of the sausage. There, it is said, a trader will name no fewer than 400 different kinds of sausage. A sausage exhibition was held recently in Ger many, at which 1,000 varieties of sausage were shown. In this connection the story is told of a young Prussian who, though he had received an expensive training as a chemist, shut himself up in his lab oratory, and instead of devising a new dye, safety match, motor engine, ex plosive, aeroplane, or photographic lens, took pork, veal, olives, pepper, fennel, old wine, cheese, apples, cinna mon, and herrings' roes, and from them evolved a wonderful and totally original "wurst," the best of its kind. He has amassed a considerable for tune from its sale.—Berlin Correspond ence to the New York Sun.

Cecil Rhodes latest biographer says that Rhodes was a valiant trencher man—''ont might almost call him a gross feeder"—and liked getting the joint in front of him and cutting off great hunks of meat. Though "no drunkard." he also liked his cham pagne in a tumbler, tossed off the glass absent-mindedly and would have five or six liquor glasses of his fa mous Russian kuemmel after meals. At 11 in the morning he usually, "like Bismarck," had a flagon of champagne and stout, or light Pllsener beer, then Pilsener or bock for lunch, and, with the exception of a gin and soda some times at sundown, nothing until din ner. After dinner he often sat at the dining room table talking and smoking innumerable cigarettes until bedtime.
