Willis, writing to i.ie Plains man. of Plains, Mont., has lae follow ing to say of the recent meeting of the State Horticultural society in this city "We arrived at Kalispell at 2:30 a. m. and did not expect to find any one to meet us at that hour. Imagine our surprise when we alighted from the train to find the depot~platform crowded with our friends of Flathead county. We were escorted to the West hotel, the best in the city, that maae a special rate to the society, and is a good hotel. We soon turned in to dream of big red apples and did not awake until a late hour in the morning. I was. .agreeably surprised to see the magic growth oi Kalispell, In 1891 and 1892 the Great Northern railway was built and I was freight ing to the construction camps. Where now stands the M. M. com pany's large block a wagon tire came off. There was only one dirt cover ed cabin in the entire town. We went to that and secured a pail of water from a well that looked as much like milk as water. We gathered up a few stakes and field rails and soon had the tire set in our western way. Lit tie did I think in a short ten years I would see a city oi 3,700 people, and one of the busiest towns in the west. They have a water system of clear, sparkling water, a good city govern ment, the best lighted town I know of. two large flouring mills, two ele vators belonging to outside compan ies, Wheat is selling and has been been for 76 cents per bushel since last fall. See the difference'.' We have to have No, 1 hard wheat to get CO cents for it and then eat the poor est flour in the state to keep the mill ing company in good humor. I no ticed one thing. The business men are a unit on all public questions, some thing you do not find in many west ern towns. I never was among a a more hospitable people in my life than the people of Kalispell and Flat head valley. One of the most pleasant features of the trip was the excursion over the new line of road from Kalispell to tiie O'Brien Lumber company's large saw mill and tie-pickling plant at Mc Govern's hay at the head of the lake. They have several hundred men working there and nearly all of the machinery is now on the ground and being placed as fast as seventy-five carpenters and an army of machinists can construct and place It. We had a fine view of the lake from the point of rocks. The program as published was car ried out in full and tne remarks after each article were full of practical in formation. The musical entertain ment was a treat to all who attended and was highly appreciated. The ban quet, which was held at the West hotel, was a luxurious affair and was the crowning event of a harmonious and instructive horticultural session.

There lias been found a judge ill .New 1 ork with bravery enough to throw the writing expert out of court, and to declare that real evidence must he brought before him to secure tne conviction of any one. The growth oi the writing expert iias been imperceptible. In a general way a man may swear to a. signature with which lie is familiar. This is a duly imposed upon bank officers and many others who have to scrutinize papers brought before them. From tins beginning i ertiun nr n have as sinned to build the detection of writ ing into a science, and upon their al ii gen insight many a man has been' convicted. Gradually the writing ex pert found it as necessary to main tain his conclusions as a detective does to furnish evidence for the eon n lie a of bis prisoner. .Judges were overawed by the mysterious methods of those gi ntlemen and unconscious ly let down the bars in tlieir favor. Justice Fursman, declaring that "the law has treated with too much courtesy those pretending to expert knowledge," lias dealt a black eye to tne writing » xpert. There was cited one ease, that of M. Bertillon, the anthropometrist of the Paris police, who, during the first Dreyfus trial, assumed the role of wr.iing expert, and by whose testimony largely the accused officer was convicted; later on direct and unimpeachable evidi nee established the fact of another au- tuorship than Dieyius's of the docu- ments in question and all of Bertil- lion's finespun theories and sworn statements forthwith vanished into thin air. For these fraudulent acts tne Paris prefect of police summarily dismissed Bertillon from the service in disgrace, but subsequently politi- cal and army influence restored him to his position, especially as the sys- tem of measuring criminals devised by him Had been of great service in Franiv. -Justice Fursman lias done the pub- lic a service.—Atlanta Constitution.
