Advertising rates furnished on application Notices for the Herald must he in not later than 1 p. m. Friday. Mauna Loa, the pyrotechnical wonder of Hawaii, is on a scintillat ing toot. This is said to be the largest volcano in the world, having eight craters. The South American republics are much opposed to the imperial policy of this country. They are afraid they too will be lambs to lie down with the lion as soon as the latter gets through lying down with the Philip pines. The Standard paying a cloud-roll ing tribute to the watermelon, says it affords a dish "at once fit for gods and coons." It is now time for the pumpkin lover of the Great Falls Tribune to say something in defense of his position. After the customary grammatical reconstruction, a thought gleaned from the Valley county Gazette reads as follows: If Colonel Ingersoll was wrong in his religious belief, something hotter than a cotton-wood log popped into hell last Friday night. Gov. Smith is apt to be nominat ed by Montana democracy to suc ceed himself as governor. After all criticism has been weighed, it ap pears that he is the strongest demo crat in the state, and the strength of his spinal column is proved beyond question. If Dr. Wasson had sued Thomas Jefferson Johns for 50 cents there might have existed a hope of recov ering on the judgment. But before the reverend gentleman has paid his lawyer and advanced the costs, he will have to pass the hat a few ex tra passes. The Valley county Gazette gives the Herald a puerile rap this week, apparently forgetful that the editor of that paper has never yet laid up any money on an encounter with the Herald . The Gazette man is one of those intellectual nincompoops who are dragging the country press into the slough of disrepute. His pinacle of thought which looks like a turkey egg perched on a bean pole, is a monument to dark age stupidity. His fitness for the sanc tum is granted only on the size of his feet and the immaculateness of Iiis gall. He is a Tennessee tumble bug in Montana journalism, a fester on the social life of Glasgow, a pim ple on the dody of human society. It would be worth the fare to run down to Glasgow and shake the hand of the editorial ape, just to hear his brains rattle. COLLINS' SOLILOQUY. To open, or not to open, that is the question;—whether tis nobler in Great Falls to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous kickers, or to take up arms against a sea of timo thy and by a few Daisy lawn mow ers, end them? To open—to furn ish—to furnish-—ay, there's the rub; for with those tete-a-tetes and grav el walks what coet may come, when we have opened up our blooming parks must give us pause. There's the respect that makes calamity of the high board fence. For who would bear the slurs and scorns of rubbernecks, the insolence of office, and the <jpurns that patient merit of the hoodlum takes, when he himself might his quietus make with a bare turn-style? Who would stand the round robins of all the press of Cas cade county, but that the dread of the accruing costs, of salaries and two-bit entries, puzzles the will and makes us rather meet the costs we have than fly to others that we know not of. And thus the native hue of resolution is whitewashed over with the whitewash of economy; and en terprises of great pith and moment are turned down by rubes and tin horns and lose the name of action. Sec. Alger is going home to Rus sell A. few votes for that senator ship, beef4 it is everlastingly tool 8. The troops to return from the Or ient are so slow about starting that it looks as if Great Falls might re ceive the soldiers and celebrate the Christmas festivities at the same time. By committing suicide, the fam ous cow Clarissa has set an example lor the editor of the Valley County Gazette to follow. But it is doubt ful if the chump has sense enough to see the point. No one knows the trials and tribu lations of the country editor but him self. The other day a sweet little postmistress in Meagher county wrote a saucy letter to the editor of a neighboring paper, in which she raised serious complaint in regard to the malodorous paste he uses. The long suffering scribe wrote an apol ogetical letter, explaining that the paste was only three months old, but that if she wanted to smell paste, he had some left that was made in 189 on which he had raised four crops of toadstools and two of onions. At last accounts he had not receivd a reply. The Dreyfus Affair. If, in the rush of events, the first act of the Dreyfus melodrama has been forgotten, it may be well to recall it, that we may watch the last act understandingly. A captain of the French army was accused of selling army secrets to the Germans. This captain was Dreyfus. He was a Jew. He was accused, tried, and convicted of trea son. He was sentenced to exile, loaded with chains and national hate. But there was a man who was not influenced by a merciless prejudice, nor silenced by the noise of the mob. This was Zola. Ile, too, was a Jew. He and others examined the facts and declared that a monstrous crime had been commited by the court martial that convicted Dreyfus. Zola was exiled, and others were im prisoned for championing the cause of the wronged man. Thus the first act closes with the triumph of the heavy villiain. But the second act brings the hero ine to the rescue. This is a little out of the regular order, but this is the day of the "new woman," hence we may expect strange events, and applaud them, too, when it is such heroic work ar that which Mme. Dreyfus has done. This woman and her little group of friends succeeded in showing up the real villian, Ester hazy, a rake, a roue, the Iago of modern times. They found that the evidence against Dreyfus had been forged. Thus closed the second act. Brighter days are coming. Now, in the third act, comes the denouement. The prisoner has been broght back to France for a new trial. But, in reality, it is France herself in the dock, with Dreyfus bent and whitened by injustice, as an accuser. We are waiting for the curtain to fall. What ever may be the conclu sion France can never escape the charge of national pusillanimity, but if there is justice in the end, we can forgive her for having played a cheap and disreputable melodrama.

SUCH SATISFACTION. MRS. TENSPOT MAKES HER OWN GOWNS AND MAKES THEM WELL. 4« She Explainn tu Her Dear Friend, Mr». Fnlrfnx, There I n Heally No Trouble In DroNMinnklnK If You Go About It Hiuht. "Oh, Mrs. Fairfax!" exclaimed Mrs. Tenspot, during a call of the former upon the latter. "Before you go I wish }ou to come up stairs and look at my Dew gown, that I made myself." "I shall be delighted, I'm sure," re plied the caller. "And so you have made a gown yourself, have you?" "Yes, and you've no idea the satis faction it is to plan a gown all yourself and work It out. It's a real joy." "I should dearly love to see it, and as I have finished my call I'll look at it low, if you don't mind." Mrs. Tenspot led the way up stairs nnd produced tho new gown, holding it before her in order to set off its bean ties. It was udmired by Mrs. Fairfax to the maker's heart's content, and the caller said : "The very idea of your making a garment like that yourself! But you are so very smart. I'm sure I could never do it in the world. Surely yon didn't cut it out without assistance?" "Oh, no! Mrs. Twill, who always has made my gowns heretofore, cut it ont for me. I thought I would let her do that, you know, but it's a great sat isfaction to have a gown one has made oneself, don't yon think?" "Indeed I do. It looks as though it would hang lipautifnlly. How did you manage the fitting." "It was so fortunate! You see, I had Miss Snipps in the house making some plain clothes for the baby, and she fitted it for me. " "I suppose she sewed on the waist, too, then?" asked Mrs. Fairfax. "Oh, yes, but that's a very small part about the making of a dress, don't yon think?" "A mere incident. How graceful the sleeves are I I supposo yon made those yourself?" "Well, no. Miss Snipps happened to have a little lull in her work about that time and I let her make the sleeves. But don't you really think it's a pretty gown ?" "Indeed I do. " « "I'm so glad to hear you say so, for your taste is perfect, and then it is such à satisfaction to have a dress one has made oneself. Don't you think so, Mrs. Fairfax?' "Indeed it mnst be, Mrs. Tenspot. 1 wish I could mako my own gowns." "Oh, it really isn't any trouble after one sets one's mind on it I Why, must you go? Come again soon, dear." "Thank you, but I believe you owe me two calls now. " "Do I? Well, I'll pay them soon. Qoodby, dear. " "Goodby, dear."—New York World. Mnklnjc It 1'lennnnt For Him.
