HOLD-UP ARTISTS STIR THINGS UP A rather Ixdd hold-up took place Saturday evening at 9 oclock, in tliealley between Lindhe's store anil the Pioneer Mercantile company, which caused quite a bit of excit ment for the police for a little while. Some one happened by just at that moment and saw the fray and called the police, hut they arrived just in time to see the hold-ups dis sapear down the alley in the oppo site direction where they made good their escape in the darkness. Of ficer Metcalf kept a close watch on the trains and arrested two suspic ious looking characters who were trying to beat their way out on No. I, and held them till morning for imlentification, hut the parties who were held up could not indentity them as the ones who did the job, so they were 'released anil ordered out of town in a hurry. The names of the men held up c uld not be learned, but they were some outsiders, who had drifted in here during the day and had ac cumulated a pretty fair "jag", so it did not take much to do them up. They both had been rapped quite severely over the head, enough to lay them cold, hut the next morning they were none the worse off for their experience, ex cept for a few cuts and bruises. One claims to have lost $10 and the other $28. Sunday morning Metcalf gave them both a floater out of town also, as they had noth ing in view here. | MISS ROOSEVELT ! AT LAKE MCDONALD Mr. and Mrs. Osborne of.New York, accompanied by their niece, Miss Ethel Roosevelt and other members of the party, are at Lake McDonald, having arrived there yesterday. They are at the Glacier hotel and will make some of the longer trips of scenic interest. ♦Un fortunately they can have hut little idea of the beauty and grandeur of Lake McDonald and surrounding country during these smoky days. It was remarked that Miss Roose velt is a "Chip off the old block" for she was given a seat with the driver from Belton to the lake and had the pleasure of driving the hors?!: through the primeval forests of the brand new national park. Those old forests and still older moun tains ought to look good to her father's daughter. ( Hats offplease). Had we audience with the rain god, for all concerned and Miss Ethel in particular, we would invoke the powers for a downpour that would quench all fires in the forests and dissipate the sinoke that cur tains from view some of the grand est and most beautiful pictures ever made by nature set on edge.— Kalispell Inter Lake. is Robbed Till in Diner. Saturday afternoon while the Oriental Limited was speeding over the prairies between Havre and Cut Bank, the dining car conductor made the discovery that the drawer where he kept his money had been tapped for $150. Suspicion rested on Robert Williams, the colored head waiter, as he was the only one who had access to the place, and a message was sent to Special Agent Harmon to look into the case. He boarded the train and made a thorough search, but could not find the money. The evidence was very strong against the colored man, so he was put under arrest and taken to Spokane for trial.

Last year there were some 110,000 paid ad- • missions, and this year 150,000 are confidently expected. It requires the services of a big and thoroughly trained 1 staff of attendants to secure comfort for these throngs. It is true that Spokane through its lodges, fraternities and various organizations contributes with admirable spirit to the same desired end of Insuring the comfort of visitors. The city authorities do their part as well, and the result of the kindly activity of the police is that, some weeks before the fair's opening, Spokane is cleared of aU undesirable characters, confidence men, pickpockets and the nimble fingered and nimble witted fraternity gen erally. From the opening of the gates on the first day of the Spokane Interstate Fair—held this year Oct. 3 to 9— there is exhilaration In the air, an infectious, joyous spirit that pervades the throngs in the cars seemingly before their arrival by one of the two electric lines at the, fair grounds. And when the moving stream of pleasure bent humanity is passing through the gates it needs not the big sign overhead nor tiie inspiriting music of the bands Inside to convince the stranger that the Interstate Fair is on. | ! FLATHEAD FRUIT LEADS THEM ALL of Prof. M. L. Dean, state horticul tural inspector, was a Kalispell visitor Wednesday, conÿng from up from the fruit belt around the lake with J. C. Wood, where he had been inspecting the orchards in that lo cality. After traveling all over the state making a special study of crop conditions, Mr. Dean stated posi tively that the Flathead fruit crop would excel, both in quantity and quality, that of any other part of the state, not excepting the Bitter Root valley, which is mostly irri gated. The crop in the Bitter Root country this year was cut sh >rt by late frosts, and the dry weather seems to have effected it more or less, notwithstanding the irrigation, he stated, while the crop in this valley is even better than the average.— Kalispell Bee.
