I i j i NATION'S PATHENON GOOD FOR A SMILE SOME FEATURES OF STATUARY HALL IN WASHING TON, D. C. A merry war wages between Shef field Ingalls, lieutenant governor of Kansas, and a score of artists whose work is on exhibition in Statuary hall, or the "chamber of horrors," in the capitol at Washington. Ingalls recently declared his inten tion of seeking the removal of the statue of his father, the late Senator John J. Ingalls, from the hall. Rever ence for his parent made such action imperative, the son said, inasmuch as the entire collection of statues had, due to their poor arrangement and, in many cases, inartistic execution, be come ridiculous and mirth-provoking curiosities to tourists. Followed, then, the sound of mallets falling on the younger Ingalls. There is much truth in his state ment. The arrangement obviously is bad. Forty-one statues are crowded into a space which might accommo date ten artistically. Forty stand in a row that extends around the hall and ambles into several corners. The other statue, that of Senator Muhlen berg of Pennsylvania, is the first fig ure in what will be a second row. Each state has the privilege of placing two statues on the floor, so fifty-five more are to be received. Guides ex —FOR— TEA, COFFEE, SPICES, SOAPS and EXTRACTS 'PHONE 288J C. H.

The only rule that sculptors have to follow in making statuary for the hall is not to produce figures too large to pass through the entrances. As a result Ethan Allen stands about eight feet tall and would weigh in real flesh and blood perhaps four hundred pounds. Near by is Stephen F. Aus tin, a stripling of possibly ninety pounds. Many of the sartorial effects are rather distressing. Zachariah Chan dler, the latest addition to the hall, wears neatly creased trousers and a new white topcoat with fashionable roll lapels. Lewis Cass, who stands beside him, is clothed in a suit so bad ly wrinkled that one look will make a tailor's hands twitch. General Lew Wallace's right coat sleeve is laid open halfway to his elbow and rolled back, while his left sleeve is drawn tightly about the wrist. Daniel Web ster's coat is woefully in need of pressing. The dress worn by Miss Frances H. Willard, the only woman in the group, appears to have been slept in. What to do with the hands of George Laird Shoup of Idaho and John Edward Kenna of West Virginia must have worried their sculptors. Shoup's long-tailed coat is thrown back on both sides, and his right thumb is thrust in the armpit of his vest, while his left forefinger is wrapped in his mammoth watch chain. Kenna is marking a page in a book with his right hand, and the thumb and fore finger of his left hand are working up under his vest in what resembles a suspender hold. "But the "chamber of horrors" does not contain all of the inartistic statu ary in Washington. Some of the out door sculpture is just as often cen sured. The "hobby-horse" figure of Andrew Jackson in Lafayette square is the target of many jibes. General Sherman's statue in front of the Treasury building stands too high, and, viewed from one point in Penn sylvania avenue, the general's horse appears headless. Washington's fine arts commission may place statuary, but not displace it. A joint congressional committee could clear away the inartistic work, but no such radical action is antici pated. A New Motor Fuel. American Machinist: A new fuel for automobile and other internal-combus tion engines is announced in British papers. This has for its base 80 per cent of kerosene, the remainder being chemicals which form an emulsion. Then the mixture is distilled and gives a fuel which is cheaper than gasoline (in England at least) and which gives more power from the same motor. It is further claimed to give practically perfect combustion so that there is almost no carbon deposit in the cylin ders, to be almost odorless and to make an easy-starting motor. It can be used with the same carburetor ad justment as gasoline. The fuel is not yet on the market, but a plant to turn out 20,000,000 gallons a year is under construction. BEAR FIGHT TO DEATH. Farmer Gets Two Big Carcasses and Much Honey From Tree. W. W. Williams, a farmer, came across two big black bears fighting over a hollow tree trunk full of honey in a clearing in a woods near Sugar Run. The bears were so busy tearing each other that they failed to notice Mr. Williams, who got behind a big tree where he could watch the battle. The smaller of the two got a hold on the other's neck with his teeth. \ The battle then ended suddenly, the larger bear gasped twice and rolling over dead. The victor, sorely wound ed, fell on his victim, dying in a few minutes. Mr. Williams found both bears smeared with honey they had drawn from the tree trunk. He got a team and help, loaded the two bears onto his wagon, and then took 400 pounds of fine honeycomb from the hollow trunk. \ ; I ! 1 I i I ! | i m SPRING MEM ACREAGE CERTAIN FARMERS TAKE KINDLY TO THE MARQUIS VARIETY—MOORE NEWS NOTES. The Farmers' Elevator company ex pect a car of Marquis wheat to ar rive within the next two weeks and it will be immediately delivered to purchasers. They are bringing it here and dealing it out at actual cost, plus the duty and freight, and do the han dling at their own expense. The idea with them is to keep out the poorer wheat and have the local farmers raise only the best. They are doing the community a service in making this new wheat available at low cost. Spring wheat is going to be one of the big crops in the Judith basin this year, and many farmers are desirous of trying the new Marquis variety, which proved very satisfactory wher ever tried here last year. The Mar quis seems to give a somewhat better yield than other varieties of wheat, hence its introduction in this vicin ity. Lt does not shell so easily and matures about two weeks earlier. For milling purposes it is equal to the best. The Marquis is a Canadian wheat that has proved its adaptabil ity to Montana soil and climate. Preparations are rapidly going for ward for the home-talent play, en titled, "Down in Dixie," to be given at the Moore opera house on Thurs day evening, March 5, by the Odd Fellow and Rebekah lodges for the benefit of the local schools. E. H. Argesinger, who has been in charge of the Fergus County State bank of Hobson since the arrest of President G. M. Scott of that institu tion for the alleged issuance of fraud ulent mortgages about the middle of January, returned to Moore Tuesday morning and is again at his desk at the First National bank. Vern F. Baroch, formerly assistant cashier of the First State bank of Hobson, has accepted the cashiership of the Fer gus County State bank. George J. Weideman, of Lewistown, was in the city last Friday attending the annual stockholders' meeting of the Moore Hardware & Implement company, of which he is president. At this meeting the same directors were reelected for the ensuing year. Harry Martin is another one of our local farmers who will devote more time hereafter to the production of pork. He received a fine high-grade hog from the state experiment station at Bozeman the first of the past week. F. H. Jacobus, who was out here last year and purchased 160 acres of fine farm land four miles northwest of Moore, arrived here last Friday trom Letcher, S. D., accompanied by a carload of household goods and farm machinery, and will make the Judith basin his future home. Health Officer Stutzman has been kept busy this week fumigating pub lic buildings and several of the busi ness houses, as precautionary meas ures to prevent the spreading of small pox, a number of cases being report ed. All of the school children, as well as the majority of adults in Moore have been vaccinated, so that there is absolutely no fear of an epi demic. Every case that has been re ported so far has been of very mild form. \ There are a lot of people in this ; town who cannot afford to be sick.

THE FIRST SKYSCRAPER. Only 24 Years Since Original Struc ture of This Type Was Built. Cleveland Plain Dealer: The sky scraper is distinctly an American archi tectural development. Europe knows it not. But America knows is so well that it seems to have been always with us. No city can claim metro politan dimensions without a few groups of these great structures, erect ed on valuable land to give office space to thousands of busy citizens. So distinctly is the skyscraper a part of the American city life of to day that it is difficult to realize that the first structure of this type was erected only 24 years ago. In less than a quarter of a century the sky scraper idea has advanced till It dom inates American building, and has to be repressed and regulated by law to keep it from passing beyond the bounds of public comfort and safety. The first steel* frame edifice was the Tower building, at 50 Broadway, New York. It was frankly an experiment. It had eleven stories, and "towered" to the heighth of 129 feet. It was so alarming in appearance that some ten ants of nearby buildings moved away, fearing that it would be blown down by the first high wind. And now the Tower building is about to be torn down. Its size is so insignificant that the structure is a losing investment for its owners. The land on which the building stands is valued at $1,295,000, and something more pretentious is needed to make sufficient return to pay taxes. It is probable that a ;?0 or 40-story building will take the place of the interesting pioneer. It is rather pitiful to note the pass ing of this structure, young in years, but the first of its kind. It meant a great deal to America, for had it not been builded well, had it not with stood stress of the elements, the sky scraper idea might never have pre vailed to make American cities strik ingly different in appearance from all the other cities of the world. The 24 vear-old edifice is really ail historical landmark, as significant as many of those which are cherished by patriotic societies. GOLF THE YEAR ROUND.

The country and the parks look fair in autumn, and retain an Interest through the holidays. One may even fancy golf m January snowftolds, with red balls Instead of white. But what shall serve against the bluster and sogginess of early spring? In such circumstances even the most deter mined of fans would be likely to falter, and attendants on full pay--would >nwn in wearisome loneliness. Better rest, for a few months during the un favorable season, unless indoor club life is available, and then take up the sport with zest all the greater for the interruption when better conditions re turn.
