Knights of Pythias Will Meet

A Kindred Organization Will Meet
Tuesday Evening—Pleasant
Time Expected.
The grand lodge. Knights of Pythias,
domain of Montana, will meet in Butte
in annual session next Tuesday, and
local Pythians are making great prepar

represented by one, and in many in
stances several delegates. It will be a
great Pythian reunion.
The lodge sessions will be held in Min
ers' Union hall, and at 1:30 Tuesday

parade. The column will form at the
Miners' Union hall, with the Alice band,
the members of which were recently in

Knights of Pythias, at the head. The
principal streets of the city will be tra

ium as given in edict No. 1, just publish
ed. The royal decree is as follows:
"Hearken, you children of the Desert;
to you, the chosen ones, comes greeting:
"It is decreed by Allah and the Proph
ets .that We, the Votaries of A1 Hoosayn
Temple, No. 82, D. O. K. K., of the Oasis

Ninety-Nine, gather at the Temple to
guide across the wild and dreary Desert
numerous brave and Knightly Tyros that
they may pay their respects to me. Your

the Khoran 1 swear right shall prevail.
"Remember—Know thyself—for I have
"Royal Vizier.
"Me Too, You Royal Galoot.
It is expected that a class of forty or
fifty Tyros will attempt to cross the burn
ing sands on this occasion, and the class
includes many prominent men of the
The announcement of the meeting of
A1 Hoosayn Temple, contains, besides the [
decree, some hand made poetry and some
pertinent instructions for the benefit of
the Tyros, as follows:
"Don't get gay.
"Do not wear 'hold-backs' on your har
ness—you will not need them.
"Stick to the camel if you have to 'get
pasted' In order to do so.
"Don't monkey with the tiger because
'he'll make a roar.'
"Watch Mohanna if you want to see
the fire escape."

grand lodge. Wednesday evening a ball
and reception will be given at Renshaw

Berlin correspondence of the New York
Times: I had occasion lately to relate a
ruse of a restaurant keeper to make his
establishment more popular, or at least
to seem to be so. Several days ago a sim- j
ilar episode occurred that Is as amusing
as it is characteristic of German manners j
and customs. Advertising for a wife or 1
a husband is the regular thing here, par
ticularly in the lower middle classes, and
It therefore was the less a matter of mar
vel when people read In a well known
Berlin newspaper the following notice:
"A young lady 23 years old. who i *
ready and able to support a husband,
wishes to make the acquaintance of a
good-looking gentleman, with a view to
The young lady in question was, how
ever, in such a desperate hurry to get
married that she wrote personally to a
large number of young men, mostly in
the more modern walks of life, asking
them each to meet her at a given hour In
a certain restaurant, the means of recog
nition to be a white pink. Needless to
say the young fellows were true to the ro
mantic tryst, and, one by one, silently
and expectantly made their appearance
in the restaurant at the appointed time,
each with a fresh white pink in his but
tonhole. It was not long before they be»
gan to notice the fact that there were
white pinks "to burn" in the favored es
tablishment, which had seldom enjoyed
such popularity, and before a half hour
had elapsed an Indignation meeting, furi
ous in character, was in progress. The
"White Pinks" came to the very natural
conclusion that Mine Host had adopted
the ingenious rusç In order to fill up the
empty places at his tables, and did not.
hesitate to apprise him of their opinion,
which, however, he promptly repudiated,
and, his friends loyally taking his part, a
first-class row was soon a-brewlng.
When late at night the restaurant was
closed the "White Pinks" continued thei»
"demonstration" in front of the hostelry,
with the natural result that a dozen
broken heads soon needed looking after
at the nearest accident station. The po
lice finally succeeded in quelling what
promised to become a smajl riot and con
fiscated a number of the letters which
were the cause of the unusual popularity
of the restaurant in question, but it has
not yet transpired whether the real mis
chief-maker was a lovelorn damsel or a
modern innkeeper.

Speaking of the suicide of Dr. A. L.
Webster, who formerly resided in Butte,
the Twin Bridges Monitor says:
"As the Monitor goes to press the dead
body of Dr. A. L. Webster is brought to
town, having been found by Ben Pidgeon
and E<1 Coloton the other side of the
Home, as they were going fishing. The
body was lying near the road with a.
bullet in its heart and the clothes on fire.
The fire was extinguished and Acting
Coroner Bolinger notified.
"Front facts gathered at the inquest it
was learned that the unfortunate man
had contemplated self-destruction since
August 22, as he left a letter under that
date saying that death was a happy re
lease to him. He left instructions to have
his body cremated and his ashes scat
tered to the four winds. He said Bright'9
disease had sealed his doom.
"The deceased left a mother at Wau
kesha, Wis.. and an uncle, Judge Coburn
of Salt Lake, who have been wired. He
was a promising young dentist recently
from Butte and was highly esteemed by
those who knew him."

Chicago Record: "There was a funny
little incident happened on the car 1 came
down on this morning," said the under
wear clerk to the madras-shirt salesman
across the aisle. "There was a girl got on
at Twenty-sixth street with a couple of
kids. She was a good-looking girl, well
dressed and all that, and the kids were
in clean waists and looked as if they were
all tight, too. There wasn't anything out
of the way, and I don't think I should
have noticed them if the girl hadn't been
good-looking. After awhile the conduc
tor came around and she hands him
nickel. Then he tackled the two kids.
" 'Sister paid our fare,' says one of
them, looking up at him kind of sur
prised. The conductor looks at the girl,
and she looked at him as if she didn't
quite understand
" 'You didn't pay me for your broth
ers,' says the conductor to the girl.
" 'They're not my brothers,' says the
girl. T never saw them before.'
" 'Why, Grace!' says the kid.
" 'Honest, I don't know them,' says the
girl, 'and my name isn't Grace.'
" 'All right,' says the other kid. 'Wait
until I tell ma.'
"Well, the girl kind of snickered at that
and the conductor, thinking she was
Joshing him, told her she would have to
"Then she found that she hadn't an
other nickel and you paid for her?"
"No; she paid all right, and the boys
gave her the laugh. It fooled me, and I
suppose every person in the car thought
that she was their sister sure enough."
"Wasn't she?" asked the shirt sales
"Naw. The kids got off at Van Buren
street, and she said to an old lady that
sat by her: T wonder what boys will do
next.' "

The following dispatch from Wail

'New York, Sept. 16.—There was a dis
position to curtail vent ui es by the trad
ing element pending the publication of
the bank statement. The appearance of
the bank statement showing' the surplus
of reserves reduced to only a little more
than a quarter of a million dollars was
the signal for throwing over stock in all
directions. St. Paul dropped to 128, lead
ing the railroad shares. Traction stocks
slumped violently. Brooklyn Transit held
firm. There were losses of from one to
three points among specialties. Rail
roads were not so much affected, but
showed many losses of a point and up
wards. Covering by bears caused some
feverish rallies of from one to three
points. The closing was furiously active
and excited, showing speculative demor
alization, prices continuing to drop ex
cept when bears were taking quick pro
fits on a sudden and wide decline."
