FIVE FOIf1iGN MINISTERS.
Our Envoys to Austria, Spain, Belgium,
Switzerland and Japan.
- HRnnis Taylor, the new minister to
Spain, l-a Mobile lawyer of high repute
and a scholar of great attainments, but
is a comparative stranger in politics.
His contributions to historical literature
have given him reputation among lit
erary men, and his book on "The Origin
and Growth of the English Constitution,"
of which but one volume has yet been
published, has been adopted as a text
book by seven universities. It is his in
tention to complete the work during his
stay in Spain. Mr. Taylor was born in
North Carolina and is about 40 years of
age. He has lived in Alabama since his
BANNIS TAYLOR. JAMES S. EWING.
BARTLETT TRIPP. JAMES O. BROADIIEAD.
During the early days of his first ad
ministration President Cleveland ap
pointed Edwin Dun of Ohio secretary of
legation in Japan. President Harrison
permitted him to retain the office, and
now he has been appointed minister at
the court of the mikado in recognition of
his efficient and valuable services. Mr.
Dun is very popular with the Japanese,
and the friendly relations between their
government and our own are said to be
in a great measure due to his efforts. He
is a native of London, 0., and is about 45
years of age.
James S. Ewing, who goes to Belgium,
hails from Illinois, but was born in Ken
tucky about 50 years ago. He is a cousin
of Vice President Stevenson, and the two
men have been lifelong friends and busi
ness partners for 25 years. Mr. Ewing
is regarded in Illinois as one of the best
lawyers in the state. He has been promi
nent in politics, but has never before
held public office. His home is in Bloom
Bartlett Tripp of South Dakota, who
has secured the Austro-Hungarian mis
sion, was prominent in Dakota politics
before the division of the territory. He
was appointed chief justice of the terri
torial suprcma court during President
Cleveland's previous term and was men
tioned for the United States senate as
the Democratic opponent of Senator
Kyle. He is about 48 years old and lives
at Yankton, S. D.
Minister to Switzerland James O.
Broadhead is an ex-congressman from
St. Louis and has long been prominent
in politics there. He has had some ex
perience in diplomatic matters, having
visited Paris for this government in con
nection with the French spoliation
claims. He was a member of the con
stitutional convention which deposed the
legislature of Missouri during the war
and governed the state for two years.
"THE LITTLE WHITE HOUSE."
Where the President Will Live During the
Hot Summer Days.
President Cleveland is going to follow
the precedent he set during his previous
term and have a summer residence in the
suburbs of Washington. Eight years
ago, it will be remembered, he purchased
Red Top, or Oak View, as it was re
christened, for his summer house and is
said to have made a snug profit on his
investment when he sold the property at
the end of his term of office. This time,
instead of purchasing, he has leased a
fine property on the Woodley lane road
known to Washingtonians as the Middle
ton house. It is nearer the city than Red
Top, and from the windows there are
charming views of the town and the
country to the north, the most pictur
esaue section of the Rock creek re.ion.
THE PRESIDENT'S SUMMER HOME.
The house is old fashioned, roomy, com
fortable and large, having a frontage of
fully 100 feet and containing a spacious
music room and a dining room large
enough for 50 people. It is picturesquely
located on a knoll in the midst of a grove
of fine old oak trees on the south side of
the Woodley road and some distance back
from it. It has the appearance of being
the work of better artisans than are now
engaged in the building business in the
vicinity of the nation's capital, the solid
old brick walls resting on substantial
foundations of stone still looking as if
they would outlast for many years some
of the gimcrackery of more pretentious
modern structures. A carriage way leads
up to the house from the road, winding
under the great oaks, with stretches of
lawn on both sides.
There are about 80 acres of land in.
cluded in the president's lease, and there
is nothing to.prevent his indulging any
bucolic fancy that may enter his miiid
in the intervals of official business. He
will be even more comfortably situated
than he was at Red Top and probably
much better off than if he occupied the
"president's cottage" at the Soldiers'
Home, as all the presidents have done
since Buchanan's time.
Daniel McKeil, a young colored man
of Helena, Ark., is growing a new skull
to replace one he lost by accident a year
ago. He had a fit and fell into an open
fire, roasting his head and entirely de

Died In a Strange Land.
During the Barnum & Bailey circus
parade Saturday morning a pretty Ital
ian girl, Celeste Chiesa. appeared on one
of the floats as a Chinese woman. She
was dressed in rose colored tights, and
very thin clothing covered the upper
part of her body. Celeste was only 15
years old. She was much pleased with
her exalted position and scattered smiles
all along the route until as the proces
sion neared the close of its journey the
chill wind began to pierce her frail form.
She shivered like an aspen leaf. Return
ing to the Garden she complained of se
vere pains in her chest, but stuck brave
ly to her work and filled her part as a
ballet dancer in the spectacle of "Colum
bus and the Discovery of America."
She grew worse as the evening wore
on and was taken home by Tody Ham
ilton in a hack to the humble apartments
at 226 Thompson street, where she
roomed with several other members of
the troop. She suffered intensely dur
ing the night and died next day of pneu
monia before a physician could be sum
moned. She came here three weeks ago
on the Paris with Kiralfy's corpsof dan
cers. Her home was in Turin. She had
no friends in this-city.-New York Ad
Forbidden to Swear by a Chicken's Head.
The trial of William Walsh, charged
with robbery in the first degree, was be.
gun in the criminal court yesterday. The
defendant was represented by Ben Clark.
An amusing scene ensued when Clarlk
demanded that Jeu Hon Yee, a Chinese
interpreter, who was present to interpret
the Chinese witnesses, be sworn in the
Chinese fashion, and that the same rule
be pursued in regard to all the other wit
nesses. Judge Edmunds inquired what
was the Chinese oath, and Clark replied
that the head of a live chicken must be
cut off in the Chinaman's presence while
he uttered certain words, unintelligible
to the American ear, which signified that
he hoped he would be treated in the same
way if he told a lie while giving his tes
timony. Humane Agent Holmes here
interposed and objected to any chicken
decapitation on the ground of cruelty.
Judge Edmunds stated that he could
think of no precedent in the law books
for such a proceeding, and did not think
he would countenance it. Judge Ed
munds, after explaining to the China
men that they were liable to be sent to
the penitentiary if they did not tell the
truth, allowed the trial to proceed.-St.
Another Authentic Portrait of Columbus.
An alleged discovery at Naples of a
beautiful authentic portrait by Titian
of Christopher Columbus has caused a
great sensation there. Our correspond
ent writes: The full length life size por
trait was shown to me by Signor Canna
vina, the antiquarian, who purchased it
from Count Aldobrandi at Bologna. The
whole, with the exception of the face
and hands, had been coarsely painted
over. This extraneous coat being re
moved, the figure in the uniform of a
Spanish admiral was revealed.
The pose and coloring are very quiet;
the face is that of a man with hair just
turning gray; the eyesare blue,thoughtful
and even sad; the mouth is firmly cut,
and he wears a pointed, short blond beard
and mustache. On the tapering fingers
are three massive rings. The canvas is
of a peculiar twilled kind. Signor Can
navina possesses docuinents which vouch
for the authenticity of the picture. It is
to be sent for exhibition to Chicago.
Surprised While Stealing a Ride.
Aman named Edward Fuller of Phila
delphia tried -to steal a ride on 'a Penn
sylvania;. ailrkad passenger train from
the Broad :,street station, intending to
get off at aisuburban station. Instead
of getting on a local train he beoarded
the Cincinnati and St. Louis express,
getting between the tender and baggage
car. He could not jump off and was
citting on the platform when the loco
motive scooped up water from the tank
between the rails. As the tank in the
tender filled up it overflowed and almost
drowned Fuller, who to escape opened
the baggage car door and entered the
car. The huge volume of water poured
in after him and deluged the car, de
stroying the contents of a- number of
truniks. Fuller was arrested when the
train reached Harrisburg and is now in
jail for malicious mischief.-Cor. Phila
Effect of a Popular Song.
A shining light of the variety stage has
really coi.e to'play a prominient part in
the social-life of New Yodrk city. Some
tihme since a vaudeville songstress named
.Lottie!Gilson caught the fancy of the
metropolis with a song entitled "Daddy
Woan't By Me a Bowwow." The tune.
ful ditty is now heard in every drawing
room and at every musicale in New
York. The refrain has become a sort of
catchword and points half the bits of
repartee exchanged in the resorts and
rendezvous of fashionable folk. A
gloomy look or a somber air invariably
brings forth the explanation that its
cause is due to the circumstance that
"daddy won't buy me a bowwow."
Ready For the Eclipse.
The total eclipse of the sun, to occur
in April, will, it is generally supposed,
be one of the longest in duration of the
present century. Extensive preparations
are being made all over the world for its
observation. One English party goes to
Bathurst, Africa, and one to Pernam

I built a ship-a great large ship,
And Pride stood at the helm
And steered for Fame, that. uw.'drous land,
And Wealth-bright, golden realml
And Pride was captain, mate and crew,
And launched my ship with much ado.
"Now go, my ship, my great, great ship,
And laugh the winds to scorn."
And, lo, my ship came back to me
All broken, bent and torn!
I built a ship, a lowly ship,
With modern wings of white,
And thought not of bright Wealth or Fame,
But pleasure rose in sight.
Love was my captain, mate and crew,
And launched my ship without ado.
"Now go, my ship, lowly ship,
Thy modest wings unfold."
And, lo, my ship came dancing back
Just weighted down with gold!

DEER L DGrE
County Seat of Deer Lodge County, Montana
ND one of the oldest towns in the State, the townsite having been surveyed in
1864. The town has an altitude of 4,500 feet above sea level. It is incorp.
rated and has approximately 1,600 population. A matchless court house square,
beautiful lawns, wide and level streets, lined on either side with large shade trees,
flower gardens and good sidewalks, well-lighted thoroughfares and wise local gov
ernment are matters of the citizens' especial pride. The West Side club, a social
organization, has elegantly furnished apartments. It was recently established, not
alone for the comfort and pleasure of Deer Lodge people, but as a place to enter
tain their guests as well.
Deer Lodge is situated in the midst of a vast agricultural and mining section,
and is reached from the south by the Montana Union railway, a branch of the Union
Pacific system, which forms a junction with the Northern Pacific at Garrison, nine
miles north. To the south and west are the great mines of Butte, Granite and
Philipsburg, where are also located numerous smelters and stamp mills. Deer
Lodge river flows through the edge of the townsite, and offers to manufacturing
interests an excellent water power. Her schools are far above the average,
fine and ample buildings being provided as well as first-class professional
talent. Five church edifices, all above the average, with the usual number of par
sonages, rectories, etc., speak volumes for the town.
Deer Lodge's location is such as to command trade from the mining, agricultu
ral and pastoral sections embraced in a large area, and must eventually become a
place of great importance. Water for irrigating purposes is supplied by means of
ditches from adjacent streams, while for domestic purposes an excellent system of
water works provides a plenteous supply from the mountain streams.
The system has sufficient pressure for use in case of fire, and a volunteer fire com
pany, provided with ample hose, hooks, ladders and hose carts, looks out for confla
A model system of electric lights illuminates the business houses and streets,
and a monster pavilion and pleasure grounds have been provided by the citizens for
picnics and parties from neighboring towns that in the summer months frequently
accept her hospitality. Among the secret orders are lodges of Masons, Knights of
Pythias, Odd Fellows, United Workmen and a Grand Army Post.
The location in Deer Lodge of the College of Montana, St. Mary's Academy
and splendid public schools and churches, together with equable climate and
healthful environments, combine to make it the most desirable place of residence in

There are good stock yards at Deer Lodge fo
loading and unloading stock at the railroad
There is a fine foot-hill range for cattle arounm
Deer Lodge, but it is better for stock men to ,wi
a ranch or range for a valley feeding place in thi
winter time. Stock for the most part will do wel
on the range the year 'round, but it is safer to b
prepared for a hard winter, which, by the way
has occurred but onIce in eleven years in this sec
tion. The tendency to-day is to keep fewer am
better animals and provide them with shelter
This plan has many advantages over the old way o
allowing stock to run upon the range and "rustle.'
