NdthlQ could be weaker than the lIL the Paorth Times is putting up ar county divsion. The only point the eonpirators hope to make with the peo pie in the proplred new county is that taxes will be lower, and here is one of Joe Allen's "argutmets" that he ct all eages this paper to answer, in proof of the atatemest that taxes will be lower. This statement of the lowering of the rate of taxation we stand ready to prove. Read the igures on the si t's page of th two new counties that were created at the asat legislature and their low tax. ation and compare them with Custer county. "On the sixth page." which, by the way is the fifth page- but that don't make any difference; it is nearer than Joe usually gets to the facts--we find an enumeration of the tax levy in each emunty in the state, an(l adjoining this. In prominent display t: pe, the facts are set forth that Valley county's levy for this year was only 1 mills and Teton county's T17.1 mills. These are two of the tive new counti' a created two years ago, and in the talt so obligingl) fur rushed by the Tin- s. we find the tax levy for the others a as follows: Gran ite. 18 mais; Ray .,li., 2. mills; Flat. head. 21 mills. ? !e latter is the richest. most prosperous and most resourceful county of the fi . and its levy, without stock taxes, i- one mill higher than Custer count: s levy. including stock taxes. With the record of three of the five new coun'ies asgainst him "argument." ald Joe has the effrontery and the die honesty to make a big display of the two that he thinks will serve his turn. and overlooki?) the others; and this he calls 4'argument" and "proof." As a matter of tact it is neither one or the other. The question interesting the people who are residents of the western part of Custer cuunty is not what it has cost the new counties to maintain themselves, but what it is liable to cost them to maintain Mr. Alexander's pet scheme. This paper has shown that it will cost them TrrIrTY Lmu taxes the first year, and the figures given cannot be monkeyed with to pre. sent any other result. It is true that the taxes in Custer county this year are highbt the oe-sideedone-ideaed Times does not tell the people that the levy last year was only 13 mills and the year before only 134 mills. and that the jump to twenty mills this year was ren dsred necessary by the locking up of ..000 of the county fundsin the Stock growers bank where they are yet; mo does it explain when enlarging o. the fact that Custer county has *;.889,349.00 oe taxable wealth, that 81.U(ix.O(K).00 of this pays no taxes as yet and is only as sessed to maintain a possible legal claim Oh. it is a nice. honest. fair-minded pa per., his Forsyth Timies and it doen't mean to be anything but honest when it publishes in big display that the west end of the county only received $1.7:4. 85 of road funds last year. while Miles City got $t2. i.tC). Ibis statement is made for the purpose of stirring up a feeling against Miles City. but it is a lie pure and simple. Miles City did not get one dollar of road tat last year, and has not since It was incorpora ted in 1.i7. Miles City road die district. embracing every road leading into town. and extending twenty-miles or more in every dil'mion and embrac ing th.- most important and nost con tinuously traveled roads in the county, did perhaps get this t12.00.00; we don't know but are willing to admit it. but we object to the statement made by the Times that Miles City gets any sum whatever from the road fund, and we object further to the whole "argument" put ap by the Time as being "incom potsat.

A WELL AS A BAROMETER. Sa W a a Ottaeanuas 04. V.) coeuty aarm and Infallibly E..rtells Weather. There is a curious well on the Flint farm, in the town of Great Valley, C'at. tarangus county. It is a natural baronm eter. Nobody ever passes that farm, winter or summer, if the weatllhr is set tied, without asking something like this: "Does the well threaten a change?" For every one. kIows that if there is bad weather comning the well will let them know it, aure as sure as can be. They call the well up there the "whi-tling well," although it doesn't whistle now. But that isn't any fault of the well. Thi4 well was dug about 60 yeara ago by the father of Colonel Flint, who now occupies the farm. IiH put it down 45 feet, but found no water and ,log no farther. Instead of water, a strong current of air came from the well at times The opening was cover ed with a big flat stone, and for amuse iment a hole was drilled in the stone and a big tin -whistle fitted into it. This whistle had two tones-onme when the air rubhed up from the well, and a dif ferent onle when the counter current sucked the air back in the mysterio us depths. It wasn't long h.fore the dis covery was made that within 48 hours after the uln uhn ing current fr-on, the well started the whistle to shrltklig a storm invariably followel. When thL. tone of the whistle was changed by tIe reversing of the current, it was discov ered that the change meant a chantg andl thel con,,imn of fair weather. The,. weatlher signals nevi r failed. When thel weather was e ttied, the whistle was silent. The whistle got out of order some. years ago, and for some reasoun was never repaired, but the coming and go ing currents of air still prophesy the coming of their respective "spells of weather" with unvarying infallibility. -New York Sun.

A story is told of a certain showman who combined with the ordinary circus performance a display of tireworks. At one town he advertl.ed the. "'Battle of Trafalgar, ' with burning 1hii.,, blazing oceans and other magnificent I effects He drew such a vivid picture of that pgreat naval encounter that the ipople from the entire countryside were at tracted to e. it. When the tume arrived, the showman brought his guiding hand to bear on the set pie.'', appliedl the match in the. usual nlanner and retired to await resulti. Several minnutes paedl. but no battle ensuted. The showmanu then stepped forward and addressed the crowd. "It has not went off," he remarked and proceeded to inve'stigate. Again the same result followed, and again. "It has not went off, ladies and gen tlemen," continued the showman "I will now show you the great earthquake of Lisbon." He gathered the firewc.rks together and filled a barrel with them .e poured turpentine over them and sprinkled the lot freely with gunpow der. Once more he applied the torch. with astonishing results. There was an explosion, and when all was over he gave a parting address "It has went off, ladies and gentle men, and no has three fingers of nmy hand. Good evening, and many thanks. The earthquake will not he repeatedl." -Pittsburg Dispatch. Ethel's Ch.les. Amy has very beautiful hair, which curls in lovely fashion.
