T. lIT propensity in wouitii, which for
ought we know to the contrary may be a
very excellent propensity, for moving the
furniture all over the house and never per
mitting a singlepicce to remain long enough
in one spot to fully establish itself, has
long excited the wonder, if not the admiir
atioli, of imen. It has cropped out in Pitts
burg,- Pennsylvania, however, in such a
1h:ape as to convince those who seriously
consider the subject that it is far from
piactical when carried into effect outside
the household. The MOnulteiititl Associ
ation of that city, which is managed by
ladies, exerted theniselves nobly and col
lected money enough to erect a handsome
monument to the memory of deceased sol
diers. It is a beautiful work of art, and
those to whom its creation is due should be
satistiedl with the praises of those who visit
it, but not so. With their peculiar spirit
of iti.rest, they soon wearied of seeing it
so long in one place and now they have a
project in hand, in their own language, to
remove it from its present location to a
llace in the plark, where it will be "more
get-at-able." A monument cannot be
wheeled around on rollers, like a sofa or a
centre-table, and the expense of removing
it is estimated at about $4,000. But the
women have settled in their minds that
the massive structure must go, and those
Pittsburgh men who value their peace of
mind and undisturbed rest will see to it
that it does go.
TIHE GLORIOUS F'OUR Tll.
If the heat of the past few (lays is any
indication of the kind of weather we are to
have to-morrow, the 100th anniversary of
the Declaration of Independence, will be a
red hot Fourth of July. It is rarely that
Benton has experienced such a long period
of heat owithout an intervening thunder
shower at this season of the year. August
and September are supposed to be the hot
test months of the year, but we venture to
say that June and July cannot well be ex
celled by any other months on the calen
dar either at Benton or the Gulf of Mexico.
We have not learned of any extensive
preparations to celebrate the coming
Fourth. The hotels will give unusually
good dinners, the Episcopal church has ad
vertised a strawberry festival to take place
in the new hotel building and we believe
there are to be a number of balls, hops,
dances, or whatever else they may be
called, in various parts of the town in the
evening. The brass band and the little
iron cannon will doubtless do their level
best to wake us up early in the morning
and to keep us awake at intervals through
the day, and fireworks enough have been
provided by the different firms in town for
those who desire to invest their money and
amuse themselves in that way. We have
no militia or fire companies to exhibit them
selves under the broiling sun, but there
will probably be enough exhibitions of
a warlike nature to satisfy the most bel
ligerently inclined.
But the Fourth of July is properly the
small boy's holiday. To him it is all sport
because full of fun, noise and danger, and
the older boys and girls will do well tofe
main in doors aoid devote the day to rest or
quiet reerea tin.: Burning. ireworiks 1is

PREDICTI()NLS VERIFIED.
IT may be interesting to the readers of
the Re]coin, to know that the ot.,inions of
Mr. T. C. Power, as expressed in a recent
issue of the Inde.,.en Imt and copied into
the Press of Bentoni, are at least consist
ent with those expressed by the same aen
tlenlan w hen ithe steamer Benton mnoade her
4tirst trip to the head of nivigation. That
was seven years ago this season, but Mr.
Power had evidently given the subject
much thought before investing tnOiey in
steamboat buiildiing, and it must be a
source of great s:atisfaetion to him to find
thatt his good business jlat.Ullent hitis been
verified by the. soub-eiuenit prospelity of a
traffic of which lie has it uqiestio0 hibly
been the chief pl.romloter. At a published
interview with Mr. Power, when the towin
of Carroll was first, established a:nd the
opinion was general that Benton had ween
its hobst day, he stated that rival towns
and railroads would never perm:l nenitly
affect the freightinig interests of ienton,
and so far fronm feeling the least ondisour
aged at the outlook lie was a bout to extend
his business, build a steamboat, and othr
wise prepare for a long season of pros
perity. His theory was founded on the
advantageous position of Benton. Its its im
mense tribut:try country of unlimited pas
toral and agrienulural resources and its
great water highway, of whigh no rail
road. rival town or other enterprise could
ever deprive it. Wiith so much confidence
indeed were his predictions made that in
after years, when thle sc. hemne for naviga
tingtvhe river above the Fallts was first
made public, lie became e its strongest a'.d
vocate, believing that while the enterprise
could not injure Benton it. would prove a
great benefit to other and less f:iavored p)or
tions of the T'er'ritory when the railroads
had taken a firm hold andr lwegun to
suck the very life bloodi out of them.
Time has proved that Mr. Power's origi
nal ideas of the future of Blenton were
singularly correct aind we find lii t audv auc
ing tile S:aime vieows whe the ,'aii'od are
almost at our doors. Tie iItuiire of bellton
was assured when the fir t sctiintohoat
touteed the l ntonl levee. n tdian epre
dattions. goverltnllent reservatios~ , alverse
seasonls, river obstrlittio i anld ri val organ
izations &e.,uot to mention bad roatds,nmis
managed steamboat lines, indiferient rail
road icompanties and adverse legislations,
have all combined to crush the
town and county out of existence, but
it's growth has been sure, steady and alto
getlher wonderful, andi it's future prosperI
ty should not for a moment be doubted.
The successful struggles the town has made
to become what it is proves that it possesses
wonderful vitality and has a great future
beforeit. Iis safe to say that if Benton had
been surrounded by forests or possessed
ever theIl advantages of a stone l;a'
ry it would to-day be a hurger
town than either Helena or Butte. But
when the railroads bring us the forests,
the stone and other essentials of whwh we
are now deprived by isolation from eastern
commerce, we shall soon begin to compare
notes with St. Paul and Minneapolis and
claim that we have the largest town in the
great Northwest.
CONYG ISSlONAL FUNEL'RI ALS.
A live congressman is an expensive lux
ury, but under our present form of gov
ernment he is also a necessity. The Con
stitution makes him such. It calls for
just such an article to fill a place in the
complex machinery by which the nation is
ruled. Therefore if he does come high we
iust have him at any price. But just
why a dead congressman should load down
the tax payers of this country with in
creased burthens is a question for political
economists to ponder over. It may be a
bull to say that the dead congressman has
outlived his usefulness, but in the sense of
having forfeited all claims upon the public
treasury when he becomes functus ofico
from any cause, he should cease to be a
burthen whether living or dead,
and yet a custom has grown up
of giving the lucky members of the Senate
and House of Representatives who die in
office, extravagant funerals at the cost of
the Government. In the annual report of
congressional expenses tor the fiscal year
ending June 30th 1881, the funerals of
members of the House cost the country the
snug little sum of $13,366.67. Of this sum
1 $1,330 was expended for flowers and silk
scarfs to adorn the committees of surviving
colleagues who were delegated to see the
deceased members properly interred. The
itemized accounts throw a little daylight
on the whole matter of congressional fu
nerals. In one instance railroad tickets
cost $939.50, including .$230 for a special
car. The bill for carriages was $183. Be
fore starting on the laborious trip, the con
gressional escort fortified itself with a din
ner that cost $150 and a lunch which cost
$149.50, whick lunch, says an eastern co
temporary was partaken of at a liquor sa
loon which does not furnish meals. The
public printed reports show that the print
ing of eulogies ;Of deceased members has
cost up to date $20,0Q0. These books are
elegantly gotten up . and bound by the
thousands, and aside from the few distrib
I uted to the relations of the deceased
mostly find their way to the junk shops at
i cent and a half a pound. Why a con
gressmnan who dies in office should be put
away at public expense any more than any
other public official--a judge or sheriffor
justice of the peace--who, dies in harness,
is one )of those unsolvable problems that
the American people will some time or
thdier inquire into; as well; as the capaeity
of congressional funeral committees for
fluid lunches on such solemn occasionts.

7TI.E DEN VEilt .EXEPOSITIO".
IT is claimed and justly so, that the sil
ver mines of nortliwestern Montana will
compare well, so far as developed, with
those of any other portion of the territory,
and we presume that the good people of
Butte City will willingly back tilhe sser
tion that they have as good mines as 'ali
foriiia, Colorado, the Black 1lills, or any
othcr n _'evral producting region of the
Union. The logical inference of this is
that the silver depolits of the Belt range
of mountainslt are believed to be as rich in
silver as those of any other mines yet dis
covered ini the United Stairs. But the
elre assertion of urnknow\n ltacts proves
nothing. Something moreiauntible than
reported discovcries, are requilred to even
interest capitalists, limuch less to induce
them to risk tiheir money, and skeptics will
not be convinced by sensational articles,
published assays, or eveid a moderate
amouno t of development upon a ! i illie. The
successful minllei aii tirst !,!oille iolliny,
or its equivalent in metal, before 1 lcan
hope to s1.cceOsslliy court inlquiry and il
vestiglation. The Bar:ker 1 i, ricet, it is
true, ihas alieady produiced -(iie bullio'n,
and those who have assited the Wright &.
Edwards mine are convincled that there a!e
millions in it; but the people whiom1 we
desire to interest in the mine-the ca:ita:l
ists or their expert agents-know nothing
of the real facts, beyond the published
statements of our local journils, which
are supposed to be interested in bringing
the mines into notice. More effiective
steps must be taken if the mine owners of
the Barker District expect their nines to
become a famous and(l much sought for
property.
A Mining Exposition is soon to be held
at Denver, Colorado, at which probably
every mine on the continent will have rep
resentation except those of the Barker and
neighboring distri.ts of northwestern
Montana. Our people seem to lack the
energy, enterprise or liberality to secure
representation on the only favorable occa
sion that has yet presented itself for bring
ing these mines into notice. And yet we
cannot believe that the people of Benton,
who are mainly interested in these mines,
are wanting in any one of these essentials
to success. They are probably not aware
of the importance of securing representa
tion at the Exposition. They do not prob
ably know that there will be millions of
capital seeking investment at this display
of .the mining products of the country,
and that the financial fate of more than
one mine will there be favorably or ad
versely decided. At all events it is proper
to suggest that immediate steps be taken
to secure the necessary funds and speci
mens of ore and bullion for exhibition, and
also a proper person to represent the in
terests of the various mine owners of the
Barker, Montana, and othler districts. We
trust there are public spirited citizens
enough to move successfully in this matter,
and that they will give the subject the at
tention it deserves before the time for ef
fective action has passed.
THE St. Louis Globie-D)emocrat thus de
scribes a Washington beauty "At the
Garfield tea-party, held recently in the ro
tunda of the Capitol, there was one beau
tiful stranaer who excited everyone's in
terest. She was tall, exquisitely slender
and graceful, with fine, delicate features, a
creamy complexion and eyes and hair like
midnight. Women of that particularly
rare beauty were only to be met in Sp~un
ish-American countries and approached to
barely by the lovely creoles of New Orl
eans. The unknown lady wore just the
dress an artist would have put her in-a
deep; gold-colored satin, with sleeves and
draperies, of black thread lace and a large
corsage bouquet of red roses, and her hair
was caught back in a gracefully loose k~ut.
She stopped before the Kansfas table and
spoke to Mrs. Ream. Immediately an en
thuisiastic young man rushed to ask who
the Mexican beauty was. 'Do you know
her?' he said, and the; matron gave him
the satisfactory reply that she did. She(
was her idaughter-in-law, Mrs. Rleam, of
the Indiatn T'erritory. Mr~s. Ream was a

"Do they show much emnbarassiment?"'
"So mnuchi that the imuscles are as rigid ias
iron, and they become drenched with per
spiration. But after posing two or three
times the enb:arassiment wears off. It be
comes merely routine business."
"Do many imake it a profession ?"
"There arse s vea-i m enr who do nothing
else. They pose here at the Academy, at
the Art Students' league and at private
studios. Most of our female models are
yolung women who work in workshops antd
factories. They receive small wages and
think is a great piece of fortune if they can
earn $l10 a week extra by posing. They
invariably give lictitionus names."

she at once becanre a favorite. I have nev

Shie would pose eight hours a day. It
made her grow pale with fatigue, but she
wouldn't give up. Well, it turned out
that she was a married woman. She be
longed to a good family in New Jersey,
and was a mere girl when she married a
Japanese, the son of an ex-Minister from
Japan. The husband spent all his money,
was tihrifless and earned nothing. She
had to keep) hin. She freqtent y posed
for artists in their sIudios. A richly-dress

quirect for her. The model, she said, was
her niece, and she intended to make her
the heiress to her property if she colld be
foundl. After a two days search the model
was traced to a private studio, where she
was posing for an artist and his wife. This
was the l:st I heard of the pet model.
'It is always the whip of necessily that
drives people into posing. One day a wo

She was handsomely dressed, wearing a
sealskin sacque and silk .dress, HIer fee

had not hlid enough to eat. Her story was
that she had married well, her husband
having an income of $0,000 a year. 'When
hie died the fortune they possessed took
wings. She said she had tried copying
and other methods of earning a living, but
she had not met with success. Her figure
had idways been admired for its grace of
outline. "Why should she not pose?" '
"Do you have any boys for models,?"
"One of the best subjects we have ever
had was a young boy. He haid a form like
Apollo. His father was a down town bank
er who was ruined by the p:nic of ~1873.
This model, whom I met in the street yes
terday, has now a responsible position as
a batik clerk. One of our students posed
last winter. He was from Maine and had
to depend entirely upon hisearnings. This
young man is one of the most promising
students in the academy. All kinds of
people drift in-people you would never

Business caused by W. L. Renfroe, who
lives on Rocky Creek, near Dublin, Ga,,
to be out late on Saturday night, the 3d
inst. As he was riding in the moonlight
along the creek. with his dwelling 100
yards or so ahead of him, something came
down ow the rump of his horse like a flail
in the hands of a sampson. The horse
sprang upward and the astoni:-ied rider
was thrown against the fence. Mr. Ren
froe turned toward his assailant to see an
enormous alligator with head up and jaws
widely distended. Though it was mid
night the moon was at the zenith and ob.
jects were outlined almost as clearly as if
it had been noon. Renfroe thought him
self gone. In imagination he could feel
his body confined in the sanrial's paunch,
and only by a strong effort resisted the
strong impulse of leaping into the beast's
mouth, the charm being of the kind that
draws one to drop froma the masthead. Re
covering his feet and his self possession at
the same instant, the man lunged at the
alligator with a fence rail. The rail went
into the animal's throat but was brokel
like a pipe-stem. Renfroe shouted for help,
and w;hile waiting for some one to come,
used other fence rails to parry the tlliga- I
gator's lunges, wfiich, for some reason
then unknown, were not as fiercely made
as was expected. When his weapons canme
Renfroe shot the beast twelve times with a
revolver, four times with a shotgun and
ended the battle with a broadraxe. The
alligator had broken its tail wthen it struck
the horse, which was killed. If the assail

Three Iads. James ioran. Johni E bart.
and Ilhnsel Woods, were attempting to
cross the Ohio river at Louisvi lhe in askiff,
on Thursday evening, when their boat was
drawn by the undertow into the ral)pids
above the fails. People on the shore saw
the boy s.ldehily bend to their oar.- if
rowing for life. They pilltietd lown ;;::si
hard, but were drawn down. In the r;
ids at this season of the year the yellow
water is obeaten into white foamn, and whirl
pools seize whatever conies in their way.
The spectators saw tie skift sucked under
by o;e of these whlirlipools, its occupants
also diisappe:rinig. A moment later the
boat came to the surface bottom up, and
the boys were soon clinging to the keel.
The current was bearing them straight to
wards the falls, where death was certain
unless they should be rescled. RIescue
was attempted by the life-saving crew at
the station there, but the life boat got into
a whirlpool and made no progress. See
inig that help must be rendered quickly,
two young men-Phiilip Ernest and Olsin
Ally--shoved off in a third boat, while the
excited crowd cheered repeatedly. Then
there began a close race for life, the over
turned boat being near the falls and the
rescuet s shooting down the rapids like an
engine down an incline. When the latter
had won and the half-drowhed laids n.ad
been dratwn into the third boat the ontblu rst
from tlhe shore seemed greater than the
roar of the waters. The row back was
slow and as full of danger as the (ozal'ls
pa:li, bat the shore was gained in safety.
Miss Lizzie Brown, a pretty young" lady
of less than twenty summers, is the hero
ine of a most mysterious ronllil nc, which
exciting the burning euriost y of folks in
the pictire qute little village of Edodington,
onh the li 11 of the New York railroad.
Miss Bro'wn is a fa rme'r's daughter, and
she attends to the household duties at the
old Johnson farm, about two miles from
Eddington, which is now owned by Tlon.
C. N. Taylor and farmed by her brother.
On t:aturday night a week ago she paid an
early visit to the Conover farm ab!out half
away, returning at 9 o'clock. Her faith
ful dog Carlo, which almost always accom
panies her, was the only living creature in
the house except herself when she pre
pared to retire. When: Miss Brown was
about to go up to her room, having already
taken off her shoes, a violent noise at the
front door startled her and set Carlo to
growling furiously. In another moment
a large, powerful-looking man, with a red
handkerchief tied over his face, entered
the room and stood i and stood in a threateniing atti
tude before the apparently unprotected
woman, lie commanded silence and a
compliance with his wishes, and presetmted
a revolver at the terrified woman's head,
at the same time barring her way to the
door. The particulars of the struggle
which followed are not given by Miss
Brown, who says, however, that at the
moment when she. supposed that she was
in the greatest danger, the faithful Carlo
jumped at the masked man's throat, and a
terrible struggle followed between the man
and the dog, during which she escaped
from the house and ran for the Conover
farm house. The man finally escaped
from the dog and followed her as she ran
down the road, exclaiming: "I will fix
the dog next time and kill you." Hlow
she escaped Miss Brown scarcely knows,
but her cries attracted the attention of Mr.
Craig Conover, who ran out to meet her,
and she fainted away in his arms. Mr,
Conover took her to his house, and she re
mained in an unconscious condition for
five days, although yesterday she had en
tirely recovered. The strangest part of
the story is that she positively refuses to
give even to her brother any information
which would lead( to tie identification of
the man who assaulted her. Upon going
to the Johnson ftarm-house immediately
after tlh' occurrence nothing yvas found to
attach suspicion to any one.
A Gallant Rescu~e.
NEW YORK, June 20.-A nine-year-old
son of a poor man named O'Toole fell over
board at the steamboat dock at Tompkins
ville, Staten Island, and was slowly carried
out by the tide, yesterday afternoon. A
crowd gathered and tried to throw himn a
rope, but he was too far awaly. He became
exhausted, and was sinking for the lasi;
time, when Mr. Garrett Hogan of Balls
ton, who chanced to be passing, leaped off
the wharf after him. He was compelled
to dive to get the boy, but succeeded in
bringing him to shore in an insensible con
dition. After some exertion the boy was
resuscitated.
