As a result of the recent trouble in Lethbridge, due to American cattle straying across the boundary into Can ada it is said a wire will be construct ed for about 700 miles along the bound ary between Montana and the Can adian side. According to advices received by State Game Warden W. F. Scott, there promises to be a good attendance upon the meeting of the game wardens of the northwest to be held July 20 at the Mammoth Hot Springs hotel in the National park. Jurors in the United States court will in the future receive $3 instead.of #2 a day for their services. On June 21 the president approved a bill pro viding for the increase in the pay of both federal and petit jurors, which then became a law. Last month was a record breaker in the bounty claim business of the state, and it is apparent that if the present rate of killing coyotes and wolves is kept up for many months the supply must be exhausted—except in other states where the bounty is not as at tractive as it is in Montana. The repeal of war taxes which went into effect July 1 will largely reduce the internal revenue receipts of this district which includes Montana, Idaho and Utah. This is the opinion of E. H. Cal lister, of Salt Lake, the collector. He estimates that the receipts for the twelve months beginning July 1 will show a falling off of about $300,000. Under the terms of the naval appro priation bill each Montana senator is entitled to appoint a cadet midshipman for a course in the United States naval academy.

William Broadbent and James Don aldson, who were convicted in Dawson county some time ago of sheep stealing and each sent to the penitentiary for eight years, have been given another chance for their liberty. Justice Pigott of the supreme court has granted a j certificate of probable cause in their case, and it is possible that they may be returned to Dawson county for a new trial. Miss Mary MacLane, the author of "The Story of Mary MacLane," left Butte last week for the east. She will make a brief \isit in Chicago ami then go to Buffalo, where she will meet Miss Corbin, the "anemone lady'' of her book. Together they will visit New York and Boston, and in Sep tember the young author will enter Kadclilïe college, the Harvard "an nex," where she will take a three or four years' course. Miss Mary MacLane's book is sell ing better now than ever before.

A bank cannot knowingly pay a check which has been drawn on it for a gambling debt, when gambling is unlawful. This, in substance appears to be the decision of Judge Beatty of the circuit court of the the United States for the district of Idaho. He makes his decision in the case of Flor ence Young against F. McGrane et al., in which Mrs. Young sought to recover $4,000 from the Bank of Camas Prairie and others for this amount, wnich was paid to gamblers by her husband for gambling debts. E. Q. Marquis, of Cameron, Mo., and his brother Hick have arrived in Great Falls, and both will be attached to the sheep shearing plant of Long- & Nelson. Dick holds the world's record for shearing, it being something like 356 in a dayof 10 hours. Edward, an other brother, is also a record breaker being but a few in number behind his brother. There is still another brother Joe, who is among the fast men and it is expected he will come to Montana. If this is so, the output of the Long & Nelson plant will be materially in creased. The Boston Commercial Bulletin says of the wool trade in the United States: "The wool trade has been fairly active. The demand is good and general. Such large mills as the Pa cific, VV ankusket and Arlington have been operating and the small mills tire also taking on stock. It is expected that the American Woolen company will soon be a factor in the market. Prices are very firm for all grades and some slight advances have been ob j : ! tained. Predictions are made that un der unactive competition for the new clip prices in Montana will run up to 18 cents next week. The opening was at 16 cents. The XIT outfit of Texas, which has been driving vast herds of cattle into Dawson county, has complied with the proclamation of Governor Toole in re gard to furnishing a health certificate as to the cattle's condition. State Vet erinarian Knowles recently made a trip to Glendive and demanded that the requisite certificate be produced at once. The eorcern has complied, the document having been received by the veterinarian. It was issued by Assistant Government Inspector Irvin. The XIT outfit is a big- concern. It has brought about 45,000 head of Texas cattle into Montana this year, one of the hugest herds ever brought into the state in one year. The main owners of the cattle are Ex-Senator J. V.

Affairs of State Am E nfrnated to the Duchess of Iiuccleuch. g What the premier of Great Britain is to the king in matters political the duchess of Bueeleuch is to Queen Alexandra in social affairs—a sort of foil or go-between to shield the throne from disagreeable contact with the outside world, a dictator of propriety, an authority on prece dent. As mistress of the robes she has had her hands about full for some time with the care of Queen Al exandra's wardrobe, not only for the coronation ceremonies next June, but also for the series of evening "drawing rooms" to be given by the king and queen during the year, says the Chicago Chronicle. The duchess of Bueeleuch—it is pronounced Hue-lew, not Buerluch—• is one of the greatest ladies in the kingdom. She was three times mis tress of the robes under Queen Vic toria, and was "continued in office" by the present queen when she came to the throne. As the holder of this exalted position the duchess has au thority over the several distinguished ladies of the bedchamber, the bed chamber women, the maids of honor and also two high-born male officials, known respectively as the groom and the clerk of the robes. The duchess of Bueeleuch not only has a duke for a husband, but one for a father and another for a grandfa ther. Her father was the famous duke of Abereorn, viceroy of Ireland, who used to he known as "Old Splen did," and her mother is the not less famous dowager duchess of Aber eorn, whose chief celebrity comes from the fact that she has a greater number of titled descendants than any other titled woman in England. Six of her daughters married noble- 1 men—one a duke, two marquises and three earls. The duchess herself is called "the most exclusive hostess in London." The entertainments given by her at Montagu house, the duke's mansion in Whitehall, are renowned for their brilliance. As mistress of the robes it is the duchess' privilege to give a dinner to the members of the govern ment on the evening before the open ing of each parliament. At court or at state ceremonies it is necessary for her to dress in black. Her grace of Bueeleuch is notoriously much haughtier and more dignified than any of her titled sisters, but that does not prevent the mistress of the robes from being addressed by hen intimate friends as "Tiny," although! her Christian name is Louise. 4 A Gneis.
