j A man who holds a high official position
in the state told me he knew the family
; of the prisoner, and its members stood
high in the community in which they
lived. I therefore ask the court to depart
from its usual course of severity and be
as lenient as possible with the prisoner."
"Well," said the judge, "I never saw
Mason before he entered this court room. ,

; He admitted having had one of the stolen

have bought it from a man in a gambling ;
j liouse. If such is the case, why did he |
hide it under a stone. One witness rec- !
lognized him by his peculiarly broken j

Brownlee was arrested Thursday and

brought into court he was quite violent.

THE NECTAR WAS STOLEN.
IT CAST A GLOOM ON THE CHINESE
NEW YEAR FESTIVITIES.
A jar of nectar, upon which the Joss
subsists, was stolen from the Chinese
temple last evening. The nectar was val
ued at about $60, and tho devotees of the
great Joss are disconsolate. The only
time the Joss is suposed to eat is during
the Chinese New Y, ar festivities, and
then nothing is too rich for liis blood.
The nectar is imported from China, where
it is manufactured with great care and
secrecy—the secret of its manufacture
having been religiously kept for morn
than 2,000 years. It is too late to send to

unobtainable elsewhere. Ordinary meal j

lie will go hungry until the New Year sea- [
son of next year, when a new jar of nee- j
tar will come from China. Before this i
season of indulgence comes around again •

Billings Times: Ben Romney, who will
lie remembered by the people of Billings
as occupying the position of timekeeper
for Heinze &Oo. of Butte, who recently
finished a sewerage contract here, is a
deep-dyed villain, if all reports concern
ing his transactions while in the city are
true. Romney called at the store of Hon.
John D. Losekamp last Friday night and
requested Mr. Cass Prudhomme, the man
ager, to cash a $40 check for him, the said
ein , k being drawn on W. A. Clark & Bro.,
hankers, of Butte. Romney was well
known to Mr. Prudhomme, he having
aeted as purchasing agent for the men
engaged in the construction work here
hist few months, and as a matter of
' '' S V '. ea ' ^ cashed his paper. The draft
" 1 1 , 0l waidid to Butte for collcc
' i - ind in the course of mail was re
tion, and in the course of mail
turned, protested, with the information
that Mr. Romney had no money on de
posit at the bank of Clark & Bro. Like
transactions are said to be standing
against Romney here, and if diligent ef
I forts on the part of the authorities can
ï apprehend him, it is safe to say that lie
j"Til be brought back and forced to give
I an account of himself. Judge Kelley is

descriptive telegrams arc out offering a
reward for his arrest.

AN AMERICAN RAILROAD [N
CHINA
_
John Farrell, a miner employed at the
new Departure mine near Argenta was
severely injured by a blast yesterday
morning, He was brought to Dillon for
tieatment. He will probably lose one eye.
Moneyed men from flic United States
have secured a franchise for building à
railroad from Hong Kong to Han Kow,
China, a distance of nearly 700 miles'.
While railroads are necessary to a na
tion's prosperity, health Is still more
necessary. A sick man can't make money
if there are a thousand railroads. One
of the reasons why America is so pro
gressive is the fact that in every drug
store is sold llostetter's Stomach Bit
ters .that celebrated tonic for the weak,
appetizer for the dyspeptic and sedative
for the nervous. II is taken with great
success by thousands of men and women
who are run down, pale and weak. It
increases the weight, and the gain is per
manent and substantial.
BATHING IN
ANCIENT TIMES
Bathing In olden times was eonsidc
n great source of amusement and reel
tion. Some of the finest bathing resorts
of all ages was built in those days. The
famous Turkish baths of Rome are the
same as those of the present time. The
, process of heating the body to an extreme
degree of heat so as to open all the pores
j of the skin and throw off dead matter is
I considered the most beneficial part of a
hath. Next came the rubbing of the
body, causing the skin to become soft and
flexible, and removing all aches and
pains; this with the cold shower hath
afterwards and a rest of an hour or two,
in a room of proper temperature prepared
the patient, who might be sick or well,
for excessive work of any kind; in fact it
braces and builds up the system if taken
at j,roper intervals. The baths of today
art* similar to those of old and will pro
duce the same good effects. Arnos' Turk
ish baths arc to he found under Might &
Fairfield's, corner of Main and Broad
way.

Prof. F. F. Shadduck, Butte, Mont., Jan. 31, 1S9D.
General Agent for Electrikure.
Dear Sir: For tho benefit of any one that is suffering as I was, I wish to state
how after using your No. ï Electrikure that I feel like a new being, as for several
months past 1 suffered untold agony with nervousness that at times nearly pros
trated me. I had pains in my kidneys aand back and head that was so had that
1 could not sleep; could eat very little; and getting no relief from drugs I got the
Electrikure. And now after two weeks use of it the nervousness has gone. I
sleep and have a good appetite;* have gained five pounds and feel better In every
way. I can recommend it to all ailing or sick people as the oxygen and electricity
goes to every part of the body and in sutdi a mild soothing way that there are no
unpleasant feelings like the old way of taking electricity. Yours truly,
