The round house has been all clean ed U P and P ainted the past week as usual, John V. Harris being the heavy man. The carpenter gang is here _ , now making several repairs and it ia expected « have the round houae in good shape for next winter. The round house base ball team re ceived their suits last week and have their line up completed now. Art Kelly, who played with the Boston Nationals last year, will back stop for the round house and we are assured that no one will steal a base on him as he has been practicing the pegs every night, lately. Lefty Barnes and Jess Pierce, the out law, will do the hurling and as both these men have pitched here before nothing need be said as to their powers. Nick Hahn, the league vet, will play the initial -sack. There is quite a scrap over second base between Gene Rogers and Shoes and it is expected to play these men turn about at this base, playing the field at other times. Jerry Kelly has cinched the job of short stop by his classy playing. Ed Pierce has third base while Pinky Summers and Slats will fill up the field. Slats is some hitter keeping the men all busy chasing the balls he slips over the fence. He also bats left handed, which makes four left handed batters on the team. These have been switched in batting order so as to have a right handed man up first and then a left hander, and by this method Captain Hahn expects to keep the opposing pitchers guessing. On account of the rainy and windy weather the round house team have been unable to prac tice any last week, but will be out in uniform the first warm day.

I j The state sold 10,300 acres of land | at Fort Benton recently at $14.67 per The estimated winter wheat crop for the present year is 619,000,000 bushels . The worst famines of modern times wene the famine in Ireland in 1646-47, in which 1,000,000 people perished; the Indian famine in 1866, which claimed 1,450,000 victims; the Indian famine in 1877, in which 500,000 peo ple perished, and the great famine of China in 1878 in which 9,500,000 died. There was a balance in the national treasury April, 1913, of $73,000,000 which has been changed in two years to a deficit of $68,000,000. That gives something of an idea of how we keep going behind in spite of the income tax and so-called war tax. Sidney Miller, register of state lands, conducted a sale of state land in Chouteau county last week, with a ! rather small number of purchasers in i attendance. About 4,000 acres were isold to the various applicants, most jf the bids being made by Geo. I Morrow, as agent. W. While the audience watched the show, two masked bandits entered the box office of the Empress theater in Butte at 10 o'clock Sunday night, held up Manager Swarts and got away with $500. An exciting chase through one of Butte's streets followed, the theater manager following close on to the the heels of the robbers. Nel son Alexander unarmed, chased the two men for three blocks, despite threats by one of the men to shoot. Starting from an unknown cause and rapidly spreading through the main business section of the city, fire destroyed $100,000 worth of property at Poison Friday. The fire started] in the Bell Hotel on Third street, the principal street of the reservation city and spread in all directions. The ef forts of the fire department were use less, due to the fact that most of tbe buildings in the city are frame. According to a report of the census bureau, Montana is among a number of states which show white mortality rates from tuberculosis lower than the average for the entire registra tion area. The rate for Montana in 1913 was 79.9 deaths per 100,000 peo ple from consumption. The state board of examiners has authorized the payment of bounty claims filed last January. The claims amounted to $9,975, the interest being $99.75. The money for the payment of this indebtedness came from the tax on livestock. With the liquidation of this indebtedness, all bounties with the exception of those filed in I' ebru ary, March and April of this year, have Leen settled for.

The Claimant Br EUNICE BLAKE On tbe estate of Lucien Marlvaud, in France, lived a poor man named Sou ' >l8e und bis wife, Marie, tbe couple having a little son, Francois. M Marl vaud had extensive vineyards, from tbe product of which be manufactured wine - Soubise had charge of the grape gr " wl " K ' a,,d Marlvaud not only val ued tils services highly, but was very fond of him. Soublse's wife died, and be soon followed ber, leaving little Francois without a borne. M. Marlvaud bad a son, Victor, about Francois' age. When tbe latter was left an orphan he was taken to tbe chateau and became a playmate of Victor. There was a brother of Vic tor, Inouïs, much younger than either of these two boys. When Victor was eighteen he enter ed the military school and became an army officer. Upon graduating he was ordered to Join bis regiment In Ton kin. Francois was anxious to see serv ice and, enlisting in the same regt ment, went out with Victor, who agreed to Interest himself In his pro rnotluu that be might become an offl cer. A year later after a fight Lieutenant Marivaud was reported missing. This meant that he had fallen Into the bands of the Chinese, in which case It was quite likely that he had been mur dered. When nothing was beard from him for several years he was given np by his family, and when his brother, I/mis, came of age he inherited the family patrimony, his father having died without a will. M. Marlvaud had purposely omitted to make one because he never ceased to hope that his son would one day turn out to be among tbe living. Ten years after the departure of Vic tor Marlvaud. when there was no mem ber of the family living, Louis, who had for some time possessed nnd man aged the wine business, became engag ed to Hortense Vlllaret, the daughter of a neighbor. Mile. Vlllaret belonged to an aristocratic family, but the es täte had been confiscated during one of the many changes in the sovereign ty of France, and she was very poor. She and Louis were much In love with each other, and her father favored the match because Louis was wealthy and could enable Hortense to return to the style of living to which the family had formerly been accustomed. All went happily for the lovers till a few weeks before the day set for the wedding Then one day a man appear ^ ed at the chateau claiming to tie Vic tor Marivaud I-ouis was but twelve years old when his brother left home, and. granting that this man was V it tor, be would not have remembered him. There was no other person til band who had been familiar with Vic tor to identify him. But the claimant was able to tell of many incidents that had happened on the estate, which went far to prove that he was what he claimed to I jp Fie explained bis téng absence in this wise: During the tight in which he was re ported missing be was knocked on the head by the butt of a musket in the bands of a Chinaman and stunned When he came to himself he remem bered nothing of the past, not even his name. The dead were lying about him-, the wounded had been removed He arose and walked till he came to a cltv, where he eventually entered the service of a French merchant. After passing through various vicissitudes he was taken suddenly ill nnd was remov ed to a hospital. After having been de lirions on roturnlns to his former con dltlon he had exclaimed, "You rascally Chinaman, take that for yours!" Hut seeing a nurse before him instead of a Chinaman he appeared much sur prised. He had returned to a normal state, remembering that he was Vic tor Marivaud. His appearance was a terrible blow to t j 10 | 0V ers, for, according to the French law of Inheritance, Victor Ma rivaud was the owner of the estate, in eluding the wine business. He told I^ouis so mauy things that had occur red during the latter'« childhood tlnit Louis became convinced that thestran ger was his brother. Nevertheless il was not to be expected that he would L)0 pleasud to 8ee a brother of whom j le | la( j uo remembrance and who would dispossess him of his property Cut the severest blow was that M. Vil larpt «^mediately withdrew his con gent to his daughter 1 « marriage unless «.-oulrt be proved that the claimant was an Impostor There was an old blind woman liv lug on the place, who. on hearing of the claimant, desired that he be brought to her She asked him a few questions, which seemed to trouble | 1 i ui( though he answered them cor rectly. Then the old woman directed that be be uncovered to ihe waist. This was done, and her hand was guided to his chest. She slid her hand around to his side under his right nrm. and It rested on a small lump the sizf of a pea. 'This Is Francois Soubise," she said M j | ivcd with j lts mot i, er when he was a little boy nnd often dressed and un dressed him. I know him by this : lump " j That ended the pretense.
