OK ATI I Ol JOHN II. GREEN. A Well Known Pioneer an J Respected Resident of Northern Montana. Vf ter a long illness following an at tack of paralysis, .John H. Green passed away soon after 6:30 o'clock Tuesday evening. It was hoped by his friends that he would survive the effects of the paralytic stroke, but during the past three weeks he gradu ally lost strength, and it became evi dent that there was little prospect of recovery. The news of Mr. Green's death will be received with deep regret and sad ness by a large circle of friends throughout Montana. He has been one of its progressive and respected residents for a period of nearly forty years, and during that time has earned and enjoyed the friendship of his fel low citizens to a marked degree. His neighbors and friends esteemed him as a man of honor and integrity, one who possessed unusual business abili ty and energy, and who took great pride in Iiis home surroundings and the welfare of the local community. He was one of the most public spirited citizens of northern Montana, and his work in this respect will be remcm-1 bored for many years to come. John 11. Green was a native of Ohio, having been born in that r-tate on J anuary .18, 183(>. His earlier life was spent in Ohio and Michigan, but when twenty-three years of age he decided that the west olVered greater oppor tunities for a young man who wanted to make progress. In 185'.) he went to Colorado where he sohl goods until lSli-l, at which time he came to Vir ginia City in Montana. Later he en gaged in the live stock business. In 18(57 he went to Silver City and open ed a miners' supply store and for sev that camp with their merchandise. Next he removed to Helena and three years afterwards to Hock Creek, uear Prickly Pear canyon. In the latter place he followed the busi ness of stock raising for three years. Removiug to Fort Heuton in August, 1881, Mr. Green decided to make his permaueut home here, and has been a resident of this city since that date. He had extensive ranch and livestock interests, had large investments in local real estate, was one of the di rectors of the Stockmen's National bank, anil was identified with other important business undertakings. As proprietor oi the Urauil Union hotel, Mr. Green became acquainted with a large number of the traveling public who had occasion to visit this part of Montana.

The distance between its extend ed claws is sometimes as great as twelve feet. It spends the greater part of its life on land and climbs the cocoa nut trees, on the fruit of which it lives almost entirely. It digs in the ground deep tunnels and lines them with co coanut fiber. When engaged the robber crab can break a man's limb with its powerful claws. Animals approaching it too closely often receive an ugly pinch which they do not soon forget, and it is on record that one of these crabs has captured and tried to drag oft' a goat. To open a cocoanut the robber crab removes the bark from the end con taining the three eyes, one only of which is easily penetrated, and, having found this, it revolves the nut against the point of one of its spindle legs un til the opening is large enough for it to insert its great claw. \\ ith this il breaks the shell, grinds the contents Into small pieces and carries them to its mouth. Marulity Versus Intellectuality. As a man grows older he perceives that the moral qualities are worth good deal more in friendship than the intellectual finalities and that no bril liancy of mind, no charm of conversa tion, can make up for lack of loyalty, charity and generosity in social inter course. Young men of brains are dis posed to value mainly mental power in other people, and it is a human quality to forgive much in men and women of genius. This is a false ap preciation of the respective values of mentality and the moral qualities. The time comes when a man learns that unselfishness and affection are better in wife or friend than intellectual pow er accompanied by intense self love. Fortunate the man who does not come to this knowledge too late.—San Fran cisco Bulletin. The Foam on Soda Water. Foam is a natural product, being caused by t ho escape of air or gas from a viscid liquid. In the case of soda water it is the escape of the carbonic acid gas from the sweetened beverage that causes the attractive sparklin; appearance, but the sweetened water alone would give rise to but a small quantity of foam, as the gas would too easily escape. In order to prevent this some mucilaginous substance is usually added to the sirup, which ren ders the mass more viscous, so prevent ing the gas from escaping and produc ing the attractive head of foam sc familiar to all. The \0.M0. Use the nose to breathe through and not the mouth. In winter and spring particularly must this care be taken. If the mouth is kept open large drafts of cold air rush directly in upon the lungs, chilling the body almost in stantly. If the mouth is kept shut the air can reach the lungs only by the circuit of the nose and head, and it be comes warmed before reaching the lungs. It is asserted that the reason the American nose is becoming more and more narrow is owing to the rcpre hensive habit of breathing through the mouth rather than following the inten tion of nature. UllNNillTlM «N Llnguixts. Every educated Russian knows three languages besides his own and many of them four. Knowledge of the Eng lish, French and German languages is considered necessary to culture. A fam ily having small children employs two to four governesses, from whom the children learn foreign tongues before they are taught the more difficult Rus sian. This command of language makes possible the fact that Russians have a better knowledge of the world's affairs than any other people. The Serpent*»» Venom. A physician while talking with group of friends remarked: "It is com mon to hear people speak about poison ous serpents. Serpents are never poison ous; they are venomous. A poison can not be taken internally without bad effects; a venom can. Venoms to be effective have to be injected directly into the circulation, and this is the manner in which the snakes kill. Their venom taken internally is innoc uous." Diet null Alcohol. Careful observations have shown again and again that there is an inti mate relation between diet and alco holism. especially that tea, coffee and condiments lead to the use of alcohol. It has also lux 1 11 demonstrated that flesh eating creates a thirst for alco holic beverages and an appetite for to bacco. the use of which almost invari ably leads, sooner or later, to the use Df alcohol in one form or another.
