PLATONIC
FRIENDSHIPS
By Mrs. FRANK LESLIE
I KNOW many a women who is clever enough and thoroughly
capable of being a partner in ideal—what is called Platonic—
friendship. YOU DON'T KXOW WHAT CAPA
BILITIES MANY WOMEN HAVE UNTIL YOU
HAVE TESTED THEM. What do the majority of men
know of the inner natures of the women they meet casually at recep
tions, dinners and balls? There may be a dozen of your own ac
quaintances who have mental resources you never suspected, and, as
you have not demanded anything h.glier mentally than the mere
persiflage of society, why should they unfold flowers of the mind that
THE FROST OF YOUR SKEPTICISM would simply chill and
wither? Too many women have proved their great natures under
the call of emergency for us to doubt at this date that they are capa
ble of anything they determine upon.
m h «
First, remember this warning, though—try your woman. Don 't
select one who is eternally suggesting Platonic loves and who wishes
you to confide all your troubles to her after an evening's acquaintance.
SHE IS THE ONE WHO WILL BREAK YOUR NEWBORN
FAITH.
Secondly, a mail's treatment of his woman friend must be con
sidered. lie should bear himself toward lier with a courtly consid
eration that will leave no doubt with any healthy minded observer
that he first respects and then admires her. He must give to her
and her opinions the same deference lie pays to those of his male
friends. He must avoid, however, permitting too much of an air of
tenderness to pervade his manner, excepting that tenderness which
a man might show toward a child. A comrade? Yes, TIIE ONE
SINCERE FRIEND who understands his weaknesses as well as
his good characteristics and who will judge and advise him impartially
AND WITH JUSTICE.
H tf
Lastly, a man must be prepared to meet with all manner of ill
matured remarks and criticisms if ho should ever enter into a friend
ship of this kind. But if the man and woman have sufficient strength
and will to bear up and despise prejudiced cynicism they will surely
be S 1RENGTHENED AND ENNOBLED by true enjoyment of
such an association. I know of one pitiful case of a certain delight
ful companionship of two friends of mine that I had watched for
years and that had warmed my heart in watching, but cynics, to
gether with the worldly, calloused gossips who infest society, finally
destroyed the exquisite plant. The man thought too much of his
friend to expose her longer to the slights and slanderous remarks
which lie felt were injuring lier, and she came to mo in her desolation
with this wail on her lips:
"WILL THE TIME NEVER COME WHEN A MAN AND A WOMAN
CAN HONESTLY LIKE EACH OTHER WITHOUT THE WORLD CRY
ING OUT LOVE OR FLIRTATION?"
Standards of Honor at College
By President HADLEY of Yale
CUE man whose talebearing lias made mischief in college
WILL MAKE QUARRELS IN AFTER LIFE. The
man whose morality is no better than that of the men about
him may be sure that his after life will have 110 more safe
guards than Iiis college life. Far from being subject to special dan
gers, yon are today in the possession of special and peculiar opportuni
ties. There is one PARTICULAR form of irresponsibility to which
our college community is especially liable. 1 refer to a certain laxity
in our standards of honor. There is no small section of our college
community which will condone unfair work in intercollegiate eon
tests when the umpire is net looking or unfair means of passing ex
aminations by which the authorities can be eluded.
», at at
It, is said that the practice is so common that the individual is
hardly to blame l'or following it. If a man is detected and disgracet
he complains of the unfairness when he is singled for penalty, while
hall a dozen others who have done the same thing have passed with
out detection. The man who finds in the laxity of his fellows an ex
cuse for cheating at football will find not many years later AN
EX Cl SE I OR CUE A 1 1N(I IN 1 > I SI NESS. Ihe man who uses
unfair methods for getting an examination mark which he did not;
earn, because some o-ther people are using similar methods, will find
exactly the same unfairness in the ways by which his competitor
earn money in after life, and if he is content to accept their standards
he will go to lengths which WILL land him in jail IF ILE IS
FOUND OUT.
The Lawyer's Work

'ets of Butte tonight, celebrating

morning, but got nothing for their
work except a good scare and the ex
perience of being compelled to retreat

the holdup was Donati & Quilici's Un
ion saloon on Main street, and the
robbers will no doubt regret to learn
that there was something over $3,000
in the safe which they did not get near
enough to do themselves any good on
account of the bravery of one of the
proprieters, Dominic Quilici, and one
or two of his friends who were in the
place at the time.
Helena, N ov . 12.—Governor Jos
eph K. Toole expects soon to leave
Montana for the east for a few weeiîs'
rest after the hard work of the cam

mainder of his vacation at other
points in the east. Upon his return
he will begin work on his message to
the legislature and will decide his ap

pointive offices to fill. The governor
has received a number of congratula
tory messages from friends in the
state and elsewhere, but he has de
cided not to make them public.

thought to have been a murder was
discovered here this morning. A man

partially burned early this morning.

Butte, N ov . 15.—With a smile on
his face and his head lifted high,

Clernan today and heard the informa

der of Henry Gallahau, bailiff of the
United States court. Fuller is an old
man with a wealth of beard, and he

which had beeu stolen from the farm
ers of the valley, were found in the
room. The names of the persons are
unknown, but they are said to have
started originally from Red Lodge
several mouths ago.
BLOOD WILL TELL,
It takes lots of vitality, nervous force and
strength to win a race. Blood must be
pure and good.
Without good red blood a man has a
weak heart and poor nerves. Thinness of
the blood, or anemia, is common in men
and young women, and all those who work
indoors, who do not get enough good ox
ygen iti their lungs, consequently have too
many white blood corpuscles.
Keep the nerves nourished, the heart
strong, the head cool, the stomach vigorous,
the liver active with a tonic which has
stood the test of time and lias a wide repu
tation, such as Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery.
Tonies_ consisting of large portions of
alcohol, iron or cod liver oil, do not brir.g
the desired changes in the blood, because
they do not enter the system and are not
absorbed into the blood, with the excep
tion of the alcohol, which shrivels up the
red blood corpuscles when it does come in
contact with them. Therefore do not allow
the dealer to insult your intelligence by
telling you he has something better than
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovers-.

one-cent stamps, for the paper - covered

Utah Men Here Interested In Cattle
Supplied to niackfeet Agency.
Salt Lake , Nov. 14.-— -A suit in
volving a government contract,
amounting to $98,790, for furnishing
cattle for the Blackfeet agency in
Montana, has been filed in the dis
trict court by Wells, Fargo & Co.
against Henry G. Rand, Ora Haley
and B. F. Saunders, prominent cat
tlemen of Utah, Idaho, Wyoming and
Montana.
It is alleged that on May 19, 1904,
Defendant Rand was awarded the con
tract to furnish the cattle and that in
order to secure the means to carry out
the contract he induced Haley and
Saunders to go his security for the
money needed, and they were to share
with him in the contract. The total
sum of $92,300 was advanced by the
plaintiff on the contract and when it
had been fully carried out the gov
ernment issued its warrant in favor of
Rand for $98,790. Rand refused to
indorse the warrant for plaintiff, so
that it could secure the money and
deduct the amount due it. On No
vember 7 Rand demanded that he be
paid $10,000 before he would indorse
the warrant. Plaintiffs ask that on
account of the insolvency of Rand a
receiver be appointed to take charge
of the warrant, and that Rand be com
pelled to indorse the same. It is also
asked that plaintiffs' claim for the
money advanced be declared a lieu
upon the warrant and that the amount
found due, with interest, be deducted
before defendants are paid any of the
proceeds of the warrant. Should
Rand refuse to indorse the warrant it
is asked that he be adjudged in con
tempt of court and dealt with accord
ingly. George M. Downey was ap
pointed receiver by the court and his
bond was fixed at 8100,000. He quali
fied today by filing his bond which
was approved by the court.

RUSSIA WILL NOT SURRENDER.
Her Ambassador Declares War Must Con
tinue to the End.
Washington, Nov . 14.—"Russia
will pursue the war in the far east to
the bitter end; that is until Russia has
conquered." These are the opening
words of an emphatic statement made
at the Russian embassy today by
Count Cassini, the Russian ambas
sador.
Several times recently the ambas
sador. in the name of his government,
has categorically referred to the pos
sibility of intervention, but the recur
rence of the rumors that the powers
contemplate mediation has caused the
ambassador to reiterate on behalf of
his government its position regarding
intervention or mediation of any kind.
The statement continues:
"I deem it my duty to reiterate what
I have so often said, that Russia will
not suspend in any case her military
operations in the far east. All rumors
and reports regarding the possible
success of the overtures for peace
which Japan is said to have made to
Russia, and regarding the mediation
of the powers, in my opinion are
started for the purpose of convincing
the public that the end of the war is
close at hand. In this way it is hoped
that the public may be led to believe
that Japanese loans offer attractive
investments.
"Russia can no more admit of it
than Great Britain in the Transvaal,
or the United States in her war with
Spain. Where the prestige of a coun
try is at stake all other conditions are
and must be put aside."
