We do not deem it necessary at this late day to enter upon any discussion to convincs the teachers of thbs terri tory that they should attend the lnsti tute. The general enlightenment of the people, and especially of teaobher, recognizes thteinstitute a indi pensible factor in promoting and keep. lag active the school interests of our territory. These meettnag are for all the teaobers, and no teacher can afford to dep.;'e himself of the benefit of the stimulus a good lanstitute giver, not only in routine work of the session, but pre-eminently in the social con taet of teacher with teacher, when the obief topie of thought, conversation and discussion is on the varlous phases of our sobool work. How can we make our sobols more attractive and of more value? We believe our subools are doing better work from year to year, and we attribute much of this progress to the fact that our teanhers for the most part are anxious to improve in methods, and to keep up with the times, and in no way is this manifeated more cer tainly than in their willingness, and evetl eagerness, to secure all the good they can from the Institute. Hence we hope our institute may be well attended. We ask all teachers of the territory, who expect to teach, to co-operate with us in the work of this Institute, to the end that our mutual labors may advance the school Interests of this territory, and make our sobools better thib coming year than they have been before.

Tbhe prtloular crime be hu him under arrest for is horse btealiog in Meagher county several yeare ago. Edmonson belongs to what was known as the Edmonson gang of borse thieves, two brothers of which were sent to the penitentiary here for twelve and fourteen years. One was afterward pardoned by Governor Leslie. Jef is also wanted in Jefbr son county for holding up the stae on wblhch Judge Wade and other Helena. Ites were traveling. Con Murphy, an other of the gang, was hung by a vigi. Ianooe committee near Helena on a Northern Pacflo bridge. Another one of &he gang was killed in making an arrest in Madison county. Jeff is the last of the gang, and has always eluded the ofioers until now. Mr. Conly has been on his trail for two months, and it speaks volumes for his ability and nerve to bring to Justice a man of Edmonson's stripe. The Oyster War In Cheespeake nay. ANNAPOLIs, Md., Dee, 11.-There has been an enlagement between the state steamer "Governor McLane"and the fleet of oyster dredges IL Chester river. Two of the dredgers' boats were sunk and another taken. One of the crew on the steamer "Governor Mo Lane" was rounded.

The steamer was riddled Rith bullets. Captain Howard re quested that help be sent at once. The steamer "Thomas," Capt. Toker, we sent immediately to bia aid. "The Me Lane" oarries a twelve-pound cannon. The fight took place at the mouth of Cbeater rlyer. The secretary, of tati, of Maryland has been notified from Washington that six more cannon will be sent imwediately. A SEASON OF ACTIVITY. The Stock Yards Compaay Complaetag Improvemoate Valued at $300,0.0. The poat summer ha' been marked by the great activity of the U. K. Y. & T. Co., Into the natterof improvements over 600.000 having been expended. while the improvements are all of a most substantial kind. The new fee' and sale table and the new livery barn in rear of the Transit House art both creditable structures, while th' two new wfngs to the exchange build ing, one to he uwed by the bank and the other by Swift & Company art substantial and expensive buildings. The eleftric light plant is one of the most serviceable improvements aan effected a decided abange in the ap pearance of the yards at night. Th. extensive new brick barn on the sitl of the old C. P. & P. oompany's paek iog house which Ia intended to be fire proof, as one of the best investments ever made by the company, while the extensive repairs about the yards ani at the Transit House cost no small Muni.

The muti lated form of Casper is somewhere un der the wreck. John Christensoer kilonian, is the seaeod known victiam. His body has not been found. Cbas.

I remember geing to see Edlasna oos etar it was annaroed that be had boasted of having olved the electric problem. All electricla ow that ame problem is one of the o deat n the ked of electricity. Fifty y is ago o utists n Engarnd and Proce uor Joseph Henry in this country had a tde moan. Jesoent lamps. which were tt il appear. anuo very similar to what we ee today. There was a little glas globe from wich the air had been hausm.d; i..de was a strip of carbon or platinum, whkh, wh heated by a strong canet of eleri. y, glowed with a white beat. In Profeeor HEln y's diy the eleat arsent wy an exp iv amair, bow. wer, be amoa bein kaown, ad o zhn battery alone being In us. When tih dynamo offered an unlimltd current at a moderate prle Investors be. rn to work at the glow lamp again. It defects had never been sd ralntly overoome to make it more than a labora tory toy; it would give light fora few me mants and would thin go ot, the baog remaining in the blb burning up the carbon loop. In order to make the lamp of practical use it was neeary to de vise means for making the bulb really empty of air and for making the arbo loop tac a reasonable time. Edison weas at this work with his customary ardor. For months he tested air pumps, until he found a better form than any yet known; then he worked at carbons until his friends feared lie would break down under the strain. Thi preparation of a n-w form of ctrbon loop might require weeks of steady labor, the results as which would be decided in perhaps five minutes. In his search for a better material than p.tinum for the loop which gives out the ht n a glow lamp, Edison tried 8,100 different materials, arriving finally at a kind of South American bamboo of I markably close tiber. This wood, whme carbonized. gives a loop of great tena*ity and durability. For two years the I. ventor worked at the glow lamp before he dared to say that it was a commercal success. In the winter of 1s7U9--) he an nounced that his lamp would last loag enough to make competition with gaspos sable. It may be remembered that the announcement caused a storm of ridioubi. One so called expert, com:ected with a well known college, declared that EF. son's lamp could never enter Into com petution with gas. tut would remain a curiosity and possibly a luxury for rich men. This was at a time when Ediaora was inviting people ftr.n all over the country to sea the lamp work at bi Menlo Park laboratory, and so amngeN him that he declared he would some day erect a statue to his critic, light it up with Edison lamps and make the inascri tion read : "This is the man who said the Edison lamp was a failure." There ".tre many dark days that win ter. After waking one batch of lamp that burned hplendidly and latal for wet k+, burning night and day, Edisam focnd to his dismay that the saecad batch, wade in exactly the same way, so far as hei could find out, and of the same materials. failed completely. Instead of burniing for weeks, the lamps went on in le'd than ag, hour. For three dayw Edi~,n worked night and day trying la vain to t id the trouble. Then he took to hbi bed. seriously ill, while has am. hausted assistant took a rest. Edison has had the good fortune to a tract and retain a numbr of devota men. who for the last ten years ha"e shared in his trials and umtcereee.
