H. F. Stoltenberg topped the market
that day for Western steers at $5.35.
His cattle were held on Rocky Ridge in

well for that part of the country that
the big outfits are trying to get the State
to select and lease every 40 acre tract to
them that has water on it. We hope
that the Acantha will keep the matter

Atty, Gen. Donovan was a passenger
on the west bound train Saturday. Per
haps Jim is going up to Cut Bank to
look over his property there. One thing
the public wants to do is to keep its eye
peeled, as Jiuj is one of the State Land
Board, and see if the state selects the
ground that Cut Bank village is built
upon. Or will a certain heeler be allow

They Make Merry.
Chicago, Sept. 29.—Although only one
third of the period of mourning usually
observed in the United States army up
on the death of a president has passed,
the officers at Fort Slieridau last night
hold the second dance since the burial
of President McKinley. Col. Van Home
commander of the post, and a large num
ber of officers attended. Their swords,
from whose hilts flutter the black em
blems of mourning, were laid away.
There were no somber decorations about
the luxurious clubhouse where tbe ball
was held, and a large orchestra played
syncophated music that could be heard
at the barracks a quarter of a mile aw.ay.
Col. Van Home, when not dancing,
sat in one of the smoking rooms convers
ing with the older officers. Many of
these, and the younger mer as well, were
questioned as to the propriety ot giving
army dances at this time, and each r< -
plied that it was no violation of the ob- j

British are Encumbered.
London, Sept. 28.—Perhaps one of the
reasonB that the British, who are so fre
quently reported as being in pursuit, fail
J to overtake the Boers in South Africa is
)found in retuarkabale army order re
| çently issued by Lord Kitchener, as "tol
"Tne commander-in-chief in South
Africa desires to impress offiers in com
mand of mobile columns that the object
of such columns is mobility, and that he
has learned that such forces carry with
them furniture, kitchen ranges, pianos,
harmoniums, which nullify that object.
These articles must be handed over to
the nearest stores."
The Nation's Capitol.
From the Boston Transcript.
Frederic Harrison's admiration for the
capitol as au architectural work and the
central object of the Washington land
scape is shared by so many that one can
always send a thrill of pained surprise
through a part of every group of visitors
by a reminder that only its two wings
are built of marble, and that for the
jwhitenessof its main body we must
thank copious and oftrenewed applica
tions of white paint. But quite as much
astonishment is likely to be felt by most
persons at the discovery that the great
dome, which has been the delight of all
beholders, is not precisely in the axis of
the central portico, but about six feet
out of plaèe. Yet such is the case. It
has been necessary to. resort to some
trickery to deceive tbe eye in taking in
the whole effect of the edifice, but the
cheat has been accomplished so cleverly
that it may be forgiven. Another fact
little known to the public is that the ex
quisite proportions of the dome are the
result of accident, not de^n. The
present lines do not fol'q v tliu i.v /.iitec
tural drawings, because when ti- base
of the dome proper was measured pre
paratory to lowering it into the collar,
which was already in place for it, it was
found to be too large. The collar could
not be changed to fit so the orignal base
was cut off at the point where the dimin
ishing diameter would slip into the col
lar. The result was most gratifying.
If, as many experts assert, the present
j dome is perfect, it follows that the dome
! as first designed would have been im
I perfect, and if it had been used, oae of
! the mo3t satisfactory public edifices in
| the world would have lacked a large part
of its present charm.
An American Rsverse.
Manila, Sept. 30.— Gen. Hughes, from
Samar, reports the arrival of Sergeant
Markley and one private from the fight
at Balangiga, where over 40 men of Com
pany C. Ninth infantry, were killed.
The officers were killed with the men.
Insurgents surprised the company, 140
of 1,400 bolomen being killed before the
Americans were wiped out.
Washington, Sept. 30.—Owing to the
distance from Manila of the scene of the
massacre of Company C, the officials of
the war department do not expect a re
sponse to their order for a full list of the
casualties before tomorrow. However,
they feel assured that th e officers of the
ill fated company certainly perished and
they have given out for publication brief
i obituary notices.
From these it appears that Thomas
W. Connell, the captain of Company C,
was born in New York and was a grad
uate of the military academy which he
entered in 1889. His service record
shows that he was in Cuba during the
Spanish war until Aug. 18, 1898> then in
New York and again in Cuba as aide to
General Douglass. He went to China in
May, 1901, and thence to the Philippines.
First Lieutenant E lward A. Bumpus
was bom in Massachusetts and was given
a commission when a private in Battery
A, First Massachucetts heavy artillery, in
1S98. After six months' service at
Plattsburg barracks, ho was sent to
China and then to the Philippines.
Richard S. Griswold, tbe surgeon, was
! se rv ice in the Connecticut volunteers
i during the Spanish war he entered the

White People ot Browning Object
to Mixed Bloods.
The question as to the right of half
and quarter-breed Indians to attend pub
lic schools is still interesting the people
of the town of Browning, situated on
the Blackfoot Indian reservation. Su
perintendent W. W. Welch yesterday re
ceived a second communication from
Miss Grace D. Robb of Browning, in
which the question is presented aa fol
"There are several white families here
who have children of a school age and
are anxious that a school be provided.
We are entitled to a school, and Mrs.
Chenoweth, the county superintendent,
is willing that we organize a district.
The question now arises, will children
with any Indian blood be allowed to en
ter such a school? If they are admitted
we prefer a private school, as we had last
year. We will abide by the decision you
give us in the matter."
Replying to this, Assistant Superin
tendent James M. Lewis, in a letter to
Miss Robb, says:
"I will say that I do not believe that
children can be excluded from school
because they have Indian blood. The
constitution and ordinance both declare
that the schools shall be open to all
children. It is assured that if the child
ren having Indian blood are the
children of citizens, they cannot be ex
cluded. Of course, so long as they main
tain tribal relations they are wards of
the government and should attend the
Inaian schools maintained by the gov
"If, as I understand it, Browning is on
the reservation. I do not believo the
county superintendent has a right to
organize a school district."
Thj matter is still being investigated
by the attorney general's office, but so
far no ruling having any special bearing
upon the question has been found.—

Czolgosz Is In Terror.
Auburn, N. Y., Sept. 27.—Czolgosz,
President McKinley's murderer, in the
custody of Sheriff Caldwell of Erie
County and twenty-one deputies, arrived
in Auburn at 3:15 thi3 morning. The
prison i3 only about fifty yar<ls from the
station. Awaiting the arrival of the
train there was a crowd of about 200
persons. Either for fear of tbe crowd,
which was not demonstrative, or from
sight of the prison, Czolgosz's legs gave
out and two deputy sheriffs were com
pelled practically to carry the man into
the prison. Inside the gate his condi
tion became worse and he was dragged
up the stairs and into the main hall. He
was placed in a sitting posture on the
bench while the handenffs were being
removed, but he fell over and moaned
and groaned, evincing the most abject
As soon as the handcuffs were un
locked ths man was dragged into the
prison-keeper's office. As in the case of
all prisoners, the officers immediately
proceeded to strip him and put on a new
suit of clothes. During this operation
Czclgosz cried and yelled, making the
prison corridors echo with evidence of
his terror. The prison physician, Dr*
John Gerin. examined the man and or
dered Iiis removal to the cell in the con
demned row, which he will occupy until
he is taken to the electric chair.
The collapse of the murderer wa3 a
surprise to everyone. On the way from
Buffalo he showed no indication of
breaking down. He ate heartily of sand
wiches and smoked cigars when not eat
ing. He talked some and expressed re
gret for his crime. He said: "l am es
pecially sorry for Mrs. McKinley." He
reiterated his former statement that he
had no accomplices, and declared he
never bad heard of the man under arrest
in St. Louis who claiaaed to have tied
the handkerchief over his hand, conceal
ing the pistol with which the President
was shot. He sav3 the handkerchief
was not tied. Ha went behind the Tem
ple of Music, arranged the handkerchief
so as to'hide the weapon and tlysn took
his place in the crowd. Through Jailer
Mitchell he sent this message to his
"Tell him I am sorry Lieft such
bad name.'

A Deadly Live Stock Disease.
A correspondent of the River Press
reports thnt anthrax, one of the most
deadly and infectious of diseases of live
stock has broken out in a virulent form
in and around Swift Currant, a division
town on the Canadian Pacific aboat 8C*
miles east of Maple Creek. All along
tte railroad~in that neighborhood are
many sheep camps belonging to an
English company which succeeded to
that organized 15 years ago by Sir John
Listen Kaye, who bought the 76 cattle
on Powder river in 1886. The disease
made its appearance in. one camp a short
time ago, and most ot the sheep there are
dead, their bodies being burned by the
inspectors, who have established a quar
antine 30 miles square around the town
of Swift Current. The disease has
spread to the horses in^tnat section, but
the 76 cattle, which range on the head
of Swift Current creek at the east end of
the Cypress hills, have not caught it.
They are 50 miles from the infection and
will probably escape. In one band of
bucks belonging to the company ail died j
but 12 head.
There is no clue as to where the dis
ease originated, but emigrants' stocK is
suspected. Anthrax is very hard to cope'
with after it gets a foothold., as it attacks
cattle, horses or sheep indiscriminately.
The germs lie dormant for a year or two,
finally breaking out in an epidemic with
renewed virulence. It is commuaicable
to man, often resulting fatally, and two
of the employes of the 76 outfit have
contracted the disease but both will re
cover. Some time since a quarantine
again3t South Dakota was estaolished
by Montana for this cause, but if the
contagion becomes widely prevalent in
Assinniboia sueb measures will do no
good, as northern Montana cattle fre
quently drift as far as the South / Saska
atchewan and might bring it back with
them. The horses which have been
taüen north in such numbers of late
years also drift back to their original
ranges in this stale when they get away.
The situation in the north is, however
in strong hands and there is a reasonable
hope that the disease will be kept unaer
ccncrol.—River .Press.
