Victim of the Smallpox Suc
cumbed.
WAS OLD AND FEEBLE
A Suspect Quarantined This Morning
--Council Mav Act
Tonight.
William D. Walcott, the first smallpox
victim, died at the pest house at an early
hour this morning. The intelligence of
his death was conveyed to tlie county
authorities by telephone by Dr. Sulli
van, the contract physician who has
.charge of the pest house. Arrangements
tare being made this afternoon for the in
ferment of Walcott's remains, it being
the desire of the health officers that
burial take place as speedily as possible
Walcott was about 55 years of age and j
unmarried. It is probable that hi
vanced age had much to do with h
mise.
What may be the second case was re
ported to Health Officer Alexander this
morning. The victim is a Mrs. Trembly,
a professional nurse, whose home is at
No. 227 South Montana street. She has
been. employed in the family of "Doc"
Beal at German gulch, and for several
days complained of not feeling well. Yes
terday she was brought to the city and
taken to her home, arriving there about
6:30 last night. Two ladies from Mr.
Beal's household accompanied her to the
city. A physician was summoned about
10:30 last night. From the symptoms he
took it to be a mild case of smallpox in
its earlier stages. The symptoms, he !
said, were not well defined, and he was !
not absolutely sure of his diagnosis. He |
instructed the family to allow no one to

but to be on the safe side ordered the!

SPINSTERS IN ENGLAND.
The number of single women in Eng
land is constantly increasing. Many
thousands of women have to earn their
own living in place of spending and hus
banding the earning of men. They pass
their time in an incomplete and separate
existence of their own, instead of com
pleting and embeiishing the existence of
others. From the excess in the number
of women thousands take service in fac
tories, while others overcrowd the ill-paid
ranks of needle-women and seamstresses.
:
'
-,____ . .. ... .___. .. .
Even in the iithtr classes there is the ■
same inequality of numbers, and those
who are relieved from the necessity of
working for their daily bread have yet to
seek some occupation, some interest in i
life, to relieve tile tedium of an object-j
less existence. Some pursue pleasure '
merely, though this soon palls upon the
appetite; others take charitable pursuits,
doing, perchance, an equal amount of
good and of mischief. Those whose tastes
lead them to literary or artistic pursuits
are, perhaps, the least unhappy.
That a redundancy of unmarried wo
men exists is evident, but it must be re
garded as caused wholly or mainly by a
disparity in the number of the sexes.
This difference does not,
amount to six per cent, whereas the
number of unmarried women in England
amounts not to six, but actually to 30
per cent—that is to say, only two out of
every three women are ever married.

PERU'S QUEER LAKES.

drops into the Lagunillas, or lake region
(1 f t lie Cordilleras, where. 14,250 feet
above the sea, is a group of large lakes
of very cold, pure water, without inlet
or outlet. They receive the drainage of
the surrounding hills and conceal it
somewhere, but there is no visible means
of its escape. A fringe of ice forms
around the edges of the lakes every night
the year round, yet they contain an ex
cellent variety of fish called the pejerray,
which is caught near the shore and sold
at Pjina and in other neighboring towns.
iTIie two largest lakes, Saracocha and
Cachipaseana, with several smaller ones
in the same neighborhood, are owned by .
the family of Mr. Romana of Arequipa,
who has just been elected president of
Peru. He owns immense tracts of land
in this locality, with thousands of sheep,
cattle, llamas, alpacas and vicunas, which
aie herded upon it.
A curious phenomena about the lakes
is that they keep at the same level all
the time, regardless of the dry and rainy
s-easons. No amount of rain will make
any difference with their depth, which,
however, in the center is unknown. And
this adds to the awe and mystery with j
which they are regarded by the Indians. ; 6
There are no boats upon the lakes except '

fear, for only two or three years ago a
balsa containing five men disappeared in
the darkness, and was never heard of
again. Of course it may have tipped over
and its occupants have been paralyzed
by the cold water in an ordinary way,
but their bodies were never recovered,
nor did the balsa ever float to shore.
Tin refore the people think the whole
party was lured into a maelstrom ond
swallowed up by the mysterious waters.
The wliirlpoool near tlie center of Lake
Popo, which receives tlie waters of Lake
Titicaca, is well known, and hundreds of
men have lost their lives by venturing '
too near it. Boats that are drawn into I
the current are whirled swiftly around a |
few times and then disappear. For the |
protection of navigatirs the government j
of Bolivia lias anchored a lot of buoys in j
: Luke-Popo, and boatmen who observe
' the mare in no danger. There is sup-
posed to be an underground outflow from j
all of these lakes. It is claimed that ar- I
■ tides which have been thrown into their
waters have afterward been picked up 1
on the seacoast near Africa, and careful !
observers say that on the beach in that j
i locality are frequently found cornstalks, I
reeds and other debris which docs not
' grow on the coast, but are found in great
abundance among t'ne interior lakes.

Brophy and L. S. Cohn was filed to cover
[any damages that might be sustained by
the defendants.
The Pennsylvania mining case con
tinues to drag wearily along. The inves
tigation has assumed a perfunctory char
acter and very little interest is felt except
by the immediate parties. Most of the
time today was consumed in reading
from legal authorities. Mr. Hughes, of
counsel for the plaintiff, read copiously
from Hunt, Geike, Phillips and Kent,
but not without frequent interruptions'
from the witness, whenever the latter
disagreed with the text. -
The w itness was Sidney W. Tyler. He
is the sixth witness for the defendant.
His cross-examination by Mr. Hughes
began Tuesday and will probably con
tinue until this evening.
The investigation today turned upon
the question of re-enrichment. Mr.
Hughes read a passage from Geike, a
learned German author, which the wit
ness dissented from on the ground that
it was purely speculative and had not
been demonstrated by any sort of test.
Mr. Hughes agreed that the point was
speculative and repeated his question.
"Do you agree with the statement?"
"There is nothing in what you have
road in contradiction to what I have
stated," the witness replied.
"Do you agree?" demanded the lawyer.
"Yes."
Mr. Hughes continued reading, but was
gain interrupted by the witness' query:
"Are you going beyond the limestone
country?"
"I am going through it."
"Cite your authorities concerning the
region around Butte?"
A long list of authorities was cited from
Geike's work by counsel, followed by an
other question from the witness:
"Does not the author cite Douglas?"
"No; this work was written five years
before the appearance of this book."
Some discussion followed concerning
the depth of the zone of enrichment, it
being finally agreed that it was 600 feet
below the surface. The question of per
colating water was touched upon. Mr.
Hughes reading from Geike, whose text
indicates that where underground water
does not circulate, solutions of matter
often assimilate therewith and metamor
phose the liquid.
Witness agreed with the author.
Several pages were then read by coun
sel, and witness was asked if his experi
ence coincided.
"The statement is too long for me to be
able to tell what point you wish to draw
from it."
"Do you agree with the statements
therein, which indicate re-enrichment?"
The witness did not answer, being in
terrupted by the court ordering recess.
The restraining order in the suit of
Frank H. Walker vs. William Guedel
hofer, enjoining the defendant from sell
ing, disposing of or assigning or trans
ferring any interest in the Copper King
lode claim, in the Mayflower district
Madison county, was filed today.
F. R. Merk, the defendant in a suit
in which Charles W. Goodale is plaintiff,
has filed a demand for a change of the
place of trial of the suit front Silver Bow
to Madison county. The answer of Mr
Merk was also filed. He admits he has
not paid the defendant the sum of $3,760.
but denies each and every other allega
tion.
A bond for the return of property, now-
in the hands of the sheriff by virtue of
an attachment, has been filed by C. C.
Redding, defendant in the case of the
Butte Ice company vs. C. F. Lloyd.
May Fleischman, wife of Charles H.
Fleischm'an, who is suing for a divorce
on the ground of desertion and adult ery,
has filed a demurrer to the complaint,
and an affidavit and order to sue in the
form of a pauper.
The defendants, McRae and Solves«
in the ease of Libbie Newberry vs. K.
McRae et al, have filed separate ansu«
to the complaint of the plaintiff.
An order to show cause why the pay-
ment of $40 should not be made, accord-
ing to the plaintiff's complaint, has been
filed in the ease of Bessie E. Scott vs.

The complaint of the plaintiffs in tlie
case of James Harvey et al vs. Charles
