How to Cure Croup.
Mr. R. Gray, who lives near Atnenia,
Douchess county, N. Y., says: "Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy is the best
medicine I have ever used. It is a fine
children's remedy for croup and never
fails to cure.' When given as soon as
the child becomes hoarse, or even after
the croupy cough has developed, it will
prevent the attack. This should be
borne in mind and » bottle of the Cough
Remedy kept at hind ready for instant
use as soon as these sy- upturns appear

W. F. Mellick's Condition.
The brother of W. F. Mellick, the for
mer well known cattleman of northern
Montana, who was recently found in
Chicago in a crazed condition, and was
sent to Now Jersey asylum, has charge
of the insane man's effects, and writes to
Dr. Charles C. Thompson of Butta about
his brother. Dr. Thompson, who for
merly lived in Great Falls, had pre
scribed for Mellick so n.i time ago aud a
prescription found among Mellick's pa
pers led to the inquiry. Tae letter is
written from the assembly chamber of
Trentou, New Jersey, aud says:
Dr. Charles C. Thompson, Butte, Mont.
Dear Sir: My brother, Mr. W. F. Mel
lick, of Pocatello, Idaho, was found in
Chicago two weeks ago with his mind
unbalanced. We now have him here in
an asylum.
I fird from his papers, which I have
charg« of, that you treated him, as he
charg« of, you as
had a copy of your prescription on one
of your blanks. Can you give me any
information as to whether he was in his
usual good mental condition when you
treated hiiu? How was his health gen
erally? Also, can you give mo any in
formation relative to his business affairs,
which I am endeavoring to ferret out.
Respectfully yours,
P. W. Mellick, Jr.
As has been published heretofore, the
relatives of Mellick claimed that his in
sanity was due to bis being sand bagged
in Chicago, but it was known by his
friends in this end of the state, and in
Butte that he has not been right for
some time past. Mellick used to make
his home in northern Moutana at on
time; and was a familiar figure about
Great Falls, although his home for the
greater part of the time was in Benton,
where he traded a great deal in cattle,
and at one time was said to be worth
about £50,000. A hard winter of about
seven years ago cleaned out a good por
tion of his cattle, and later he became
addicted to the gambling babit, and his
finances grew steadily worse instead of
better Until at last be put in the most of
his time about the faro tables of differ
eut cities of the state. His unfortunate
finale was not unexpected by his friends
Here, and to gambling more than to any
other reason, can his misfortune be at
tributed . Bright, of pleasing address,
and a shrewd business man, ha wooed
the Goddess of chance at the gaming
even reason was gone and the man of
whom a few years ago. the brighest
business and social future would have
been predicted, today wears his life
away in the New Jersey mad house, and
figures on the wall of his white-washed
cell, the different combinations by which
he can "beat tue turn," and gather back
the wealth that vanished into the drawer
behind the gieen cloth!— G. F. Leader.
Marcus Oaly's Brother
Hot Springs, S. D., Dec. 9.—Rev. R. P.
Daly, who has been a member of the
soldiers' home for the last few years was
reading the biography of the late Mar
cus Daly yesterday and discovered that
they were brothers. Mr. Daly knew
that he bad a brother, but they were
separated when tbev were younp. Mr.
Daly says that he has often read of the
multi millioniare Daly, but never for a
moment thought that it was bis little
brother, who left home, ragged and
penniless. Mr. Daly belongs to the
free Methodist church, in which he ser
ved as pastor at Eastern places during a
number of his active years. He has nev
er corresponded with hi6 brother nor ev
W heard a word from him, and supposed
him dead long ago.
The Best Plaster.
A piece of flannel dampened with
Chamberlain's Pain Balm and bound to
the affected parts is superior to any
plaster. When troubled with lame back
or pains in the side or chest, give it a
trial and you are certain to be more than
pioased with the prompt relief which it
affords. Pain Balm also cures rheuma
tism. One application gives relief. For

Percy DeWolf's Record.
The Fergus County Argus, in its last
issue, reprints a story from the Leader
giving an account of the arrest of
Percy DeWolfe recently by Deputy
United States Marshall Wall, and in
commenting upon his arrest, says:
"It would appear that Percy DeWolfe
is likely to be out of harm's way for a
time. The officers who caught him real
ize they have a bad man and appear to
be taking precautions to put him behind
the bars for a long period.
"He is up to his old game of cattle and
horse stealing; in fact, that 6eems to
have been his trade for many years. His
name appears several times on the court
records of this county, and June 15,1893,
he was sent to the penitentiary for oro
year, since which he has kept out of
these parts, although he passed through
Fergus county last year and stopped
over in Lawistown to shake lianas with
a few old acquaintaces.
"His first arrest in Fergus county was
early in the spring of 1891. i,Oo May 7 of
that year he was indicted for grand lar
ceny. Bail was fixed at £500, and this
was forfeited when, on the 12th of the
same month, his case was called and he
did not appear.
"DeWolfe was arrested again in the
winter of 1882-3 and indicted March 23
of that year" for grand larceny. This
time the officers propose to keep him and
bail was fixed at §2,500. which ho could
not furnish. He was tried and convict
ed, Ihe jury fixing the penalty at ono
year in the penitentiary, and an ad
litional fin» of flOO. Judye DuBose
passed sentence June 15 of that year.
The jail walls were covered with draw
ings and comments made by DeWolfe
while he wrs incarcerated, and he is re
membered by the oftL-ers as a natural
criminal and a hard man to handle. It
would be well were he to be tried under
the habitual criminal act and sent to the
prison for a long term—or for life. He
is be.vond reformation."
"Were Filing Gold Coin.
Washington, Dec. 15.—Chief Wilkie,
of the secret service, received a telegram
today announcing I he arrest in Ban
Francisco of William Benton Fritch and
Emmett Benton Fritch, father and son,
on a charge of counterfeiting. Last
Tuesday a workman high up in tne now
postuffice building at San Francisco,
noticed two men at work in a back room
in a building some distance from them.
Occasionally one of the men came to the
wiudow and intently ltjoked at an object
in his band. The workmen grew suspi
cious and cdLLK) to the conclusion that:
the men were counterfeiters and report
ed the facts to George Hazen, of the
western division of tue secret service.
Mr. Hazen procured a field glass and on
Wednesday went up to the top of the
building where he watched the opera
tions of the two men. His observations
confirmed the conclusions of tue work
men and with a search warrant he went
to the place and found the two men en
gagged in "filing," ten dollar pieces. The
men were arrested and $3,2u0 in coin

Eldorado, Kan., Dec. 14.—Jessie Mor
rison's trial for the murder of Mrs. Olin
Castle, whose life she is« charged with
having taken because of her love for
Castle, ended today at noon in a hung
jury. Although the jury did not agree
on a verdict the result of their delibera
tions came near being an acquittal. Al
moat from the start, aud before the case
had been discussed by them, nine of the
jurors voted for acquittal and three for
conviction, the three holding oUt for
manslaughter in tne fourth degree, the
punishment for which ranges from six
months in jail tu two years in the pen
itententiary. The jurors had been out
since Tuesday morning, ana for the last
three days, realising that they could not
reach a verdict, they had waited patieut
y for tneir disciiarga.
The case will now go over to the spring
court. In the meantime Miss Morrison's
lawyers will make application for her
release on bond, which, it is believed
Judge Shinn has alreauy made up his
mind to grant. It is not believed that
another jury could be secured in the
county to try the case.
Miss .Morrison, who is a frail little
woman, 29 years old, has undergone a
terrible strain, not only during her five
menths' imprisonment, but also during
the tedious three weeks' hearing of the
case. She showed littie anxiety or ner
vousness when she appeared in the court
room today, and after the jury had been
discharged walked quietly wita her rela
tives to her cell. There sue threw her
self upon her cot and wept violently.
Later when seen by a newspaper man
she would rot, talk of her case.
"I dou't want to say a thing," she
Former Probate Judge Morrison, the
prisoner's father who has attended his
daughter daily through the trial, said
that he was very muca encouraged.
"It shows tnat there is not mush
doubt of Jessie's inujcence,'' he s:iid.
Then he added: "I hear a goo I many
folks say if the county attorney does the
right thing he will disuiiss the case."
County Attorney Brumback is quoted
as saying this afternoon:
"It was all a farce. I knew that there
were three jurors unfavorable to the
state a*nd that would hang the jury.
will tyegin at once to investigate and
arrests for perjury ere pretty sure

the testimony of the defense."
