Six Thousand of the Starving Ani> mals on ii Search for Food— Dying by Hundreds. McLEOD, Alberta, Feb. 4.—This town was invaded last night by fully 6,000 head of famished range cat tle and a host of mounted men are now endeavoring to drive the animals outside the town limits. Range cat tle are in exceedingly bad shape and the losses this winter will run high. As the result of walking through the crusted snow the legs of many ot the animals are raw and bleeding. Many of them can hardly stand and every night many die from exposure and weakness. Now that the cattle arc beginning to come in off the range, many of the small farmers, whose limited supply of feed was inadequate for their requirements, will need to stand guard over their hay and straw if they wish to save it from the at tacks of the hungry hordes. The chinook wind which visited this section last week was warm but of short duration. While it lasted the prairie in many places was cov ered with water and sloppy snow. Ten minutes after the chinook drop pod, the prairie was one sheet of ice, and before morning drifts could be crossed on horseback. It is impossible for cattle to reach food and they are bunched together and a ceaseless walk has been going on night and day ever since. This is reducing the cattle in flesh wonder fully fast. The present winter is tha coldest experienced in twenty years. All outside work has been stopped by the cold weather which has pre vailed almost without break since November. BUMPER FRUIT CROP Cold Weather in Puget Sound Conn try Will Help Fruit Crop by Removing Danger of Frost BELLINGHAM, Feb. 4.—A bum per fruit crop is expected this year on account of the prolonged cold weather. ' The longer the present weather lasts, says a fruit grower, the larger the crop is likely to be, because it removes the possibility of frosts after blossoming. If the outcome is anything like what is expected, the crop should be at least 25 per cent greater than in 1906. The organization of the fruit growers insures the ability to mar ket the increased yield, and in such condition as to advance W 7 hatcom county fruit in cities where it has long since been scarcely salable be cause of poor packing and grading. Legislature H<*lps Seattle Fair. OLYMPIA, Feb. 4.—The senate today unanimousdly concurred in the house amendments to, the senate bills providing for the sale of th«» shore lands of Lakes Washington and and Union and the creation from the proceeds thereof of the Alaska-Yu kon-Pacific exposition fund of $1. --000,000. The prospects for the bill locked bad yesterday, owing to the raising of a few technicle points as to their validaty, but the promoters expressed a willingness to take the chances and urged their passage without delay. AH that is now need ed to put them into effect is the governor's signature, when the work of getting ready for the exposition will begin in earnest. With this question out of the way. the legisla | ture will have more time to give to j other important legislation, which ! has been delayed.

WASHINGTON, Feb. 4.—lt may be stated by authority that neither the question of international disarm ament (including the kindred sub ject of restriction of armament) nor the Drago doctrine, will be placed upon the program of subjects to be considered at The Hague conference, when it convenes next June or July. The program of subjects for the con ference is regarded as closed at this moment, nor will it be formally ad ded to before the meeting takes place. But every effort will be made to have the conference consider the tw*o subjects named, though this can on ly be accomplished by the act of the delegates themsevles, properly will require an affirmative vote of the conference to take up for dis cussion any new subject beyond those contained in the program, and it is the hope of the Washington government that these all important subjects, disarmament and the Drago doctrine, will receive the fav orable consideration of a majority of the delegates, enabling them to be discussed. Freaks to Form Union. NEW YORK, Feb. 4.—A "freaks' union" is to be formed by some of the be3t known human prodigies, the movement having been started by those now exhibiting in New York. Letters have been sent to promi nent "freaks" all over the country, soliciting their co-operation. Many favorable replies have, it is stated, heen received. An elastic skin man now on exhibition at a Fourteenth street museum is one of the men in terested in the new organization. "The main purpose of the union," he said, "is to provide sick benefits and a fund for the burial of un fortunate and indigent members." An Economy. Paul Morton, in a recent address on insurance said of a certain pro posed economy: "Thnt would not be an economy but an extravagance, in toe long run. It reminds me of the boy and the jam. " 'My son,' said the boy's mother, 'isn't It rather an extravagance to eat butter with that jam?' " 'No, ma'am, P's an economy.' the boy answered. 'The same piece of bread does for both.'

HANGS AROUND AFTER HER Count Boni Trying Every Means t*> Get His Divorced Wife to Set tle an Anuity Upon Him PARIS, Feb. 4.—-'lf you don't consent to see me, I'll commit sui cide," was the threat of Count Boni de Castellane made in a letter re cently to his former wife, now "Mad ame Gould." She is receiving weekly and even daily entreaties from the spendthrift count, beseeching her to see him. He desires an interview in the hope that he can wheedle her into settling an anuity upon him, but thus far she has turned a deaf ear to all pleadings and the constant overtures of the entire Castellane family. Even the Countess Jean de Castellane, who all along has been one of Boni's strongest champions, has buried her animosity toward Madame Gould and implored her to make desirable money arrangements. It is believed by Madam Gould's friends that she will ignors Boni's demands for alimony until, in des peration, he consents to give up all claims on the children, although ha is legally entitled to see them at cer tain intervals and direct their educa tion. High society women wjiom Mad ame Gould antagonized in exposing their relations with Boni. have band ;d together against her, and the opin ion here is that she can never regain her position in society because of their revengeful insolence.
