Investigating Dynamite Outrage.
Cripple Creek , Colo., Nov. 24.—
The coroner's inquest into the case of
the two men killed by the explosion in
the Vindicator mine was begun today.
The evidence produced demonstrated
conclusively that the explosion was
the result of a plot to blow up the mine,
but nothing of a definite character de
veloped to indicate the guilty persons.
Articles found at the scene of the ex
plosion were put iu evidence. They
consisted of a part of a stick of giant
powder of a different make from that
used in the mine, a pair of wire clip
pers of a pattern not used by the Vin
dicator miners, some electric wire and
fragments of a Colt's 32-caliber re
volver.
This afternoon Adjutant Geüeral
Sherman Bell, who is in Denver,
stated that infernal machines ready to
be exploded had been fourni in two
other mines and that there was posi
tive evidence that the plot included
five mines in all. He expressed the
opinion that the explosion in the Vin
dicator miue occurred before the per
petrators inLended, as most of the
troops were on outgoiujf trains, but
had not started when it occurred.
Cotton .Mills Ueducc Wages.
BOSTON, Nov. 24.—The first reduc
tion in wages announced in the
cotton mills of southern Xew Eûgland
aud at a half a dozen points outside of
that territory, went into effect in all
but one river corporation today and
at a number of outside mills. Al
though about 32,000 operatives had
their pay cut down, no general strike
occurred in any mill. Today's cut
averages ten per cent, and places the
pay schedule on a basis with those
paid previous to the advance of March,
1902.
A Timely Mu^gestiuii.
lhi; is the season of the year when
the prudent and careful housewife re
plenishes her supply of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy. It is certain to be
needed before the winter is over, and
results are much more prompt and
j satisfactory when it is" kept at hand
and given as soon a- the cold is con
tracted and before it has become set
tled in the system, in almost every
instance a severe cold may be warded
oil by taking this remedy freely as
soon as the first indication of the cold
appears. There is no danger in giv
ing it to children for it contains no
harmful substance. It is pleasant to
1 take—both adults and children like it.

"As a Little Ilnbe."
The man who had traveled had fin
ished telling his hearers of the terrific
physique of the natives of South Amer
ican republics, lie described them as
big, massive men, with brawny arms
and scraggy muscles. In fact, his
speech gave the idea that they were
the biggest men to be encountered any
where on earth or elsewhere.
"Y.'hy," said the man who had mere
ly stayed at home and read the papers,
"I thought they were very babyish."
"What gave you that impression?"
asked the man who had traveled.
"Surely nothing has ever been printed
about them. They are certainly giants.
What made you think they were ba
bies?"
"I had read," said the other, "that
they are nearly always up in arms."—

TO MOXTAA * SIIF.F.IMIES.
Owing to the great amount of work which I
have had to do 011 the Montana Co-Opefatlve
ranches the past spring, I have been delaved in
the building of the Manchester Woolen 'Mills,
but we now have some two hundred to three hun
dred loads of stone quarried and the work of
building the mill will begin next week
All those who subscribed for shares in the mill,
to lie paid for with buck wool, will please hold
their wool in bags until the roof is on the build
ing, which will he sometime In August, then ship
the wool to Manchester Co-Operative Woolen
Mill company, Manchester, Montana.
I would like to receive 500,000 pounds of this
wool, and we will pay 15c. per pound for the
same, payable one-half in cash and one-half in
shares in the Mill company at par. A lot in the
town of Manchester goes free with each $100
subscription for shares.
As the usual price paid for this wool by the
wool buyers is onlv one-half the regular market
price, the above offer is a just and advantageous
one to the wool growers of Montana.
