(Continued from page one.) and he said he wanted to see the doctor, and when told that he was not at home, became violent, and threatened to smash in the doors and windows. This frightened the women, and Mrs. Houston made her escape through the back to the house next door and called Mr. Stacey and Mr. Paine. They dressed hurriedly, and having no other wea pon handy, grabbed the axe and made a bold skirmish to the front porch of Houston's residence, after what they thought was a burglar. Upon being asked what he wanted by Mr. Stacey the alleged doctor said he just wanted to see Dr. Hous ton, who was an old friend of his. Stacey would accept no such ex cuses, and demanded that he march down town, holding the axe over him and threatening to crush his skull if he disobeyed. When "Dr." Bowen found that he was being treated so roughly he re sented, and was rather reluctant about going along peaceably, but Stacey kept the sharp bit of the axe in view, and threatened to trim him down to his own size with it if he was not good. The trio got down to the Hotel Northern, when Dr. Houston came along, returning from his call, and he went in search of Officer Green, who was at the sta tion. In the meantime "Dr." Bowen was held prisoner in the hotel lob by, and Mr. Stacey stood guard at the door with the axe until the officer arrived. Officer Green locked him up in jail for the night, and yesterday morning he was given a hearing be fore Judge Garr and sentenced to twenty days in the county jail, but suspended sentence provided he left town, which he did. Those who happened to be present when Mr. Stacey arrived down town with his prisoner, declared that he portrayed a comical sight, although it was a life and death proposition to him at the time. He had just re tired for the night, and on being so hurriedly aroused donned only a pair of trousers over his night dress and drew on a pair of slippers, for getting all about a hat. The prison er. almost twice his size, took no tions at times to be resentful at being ordered around so roughly,but when the axe w'as thrust under his 'nose would cS(lm down and try to argue Mr. Stacey out of having him arrested, assuring that if he could only see Dr. Houston that all would j.******** * ******** f vn ± N EASY TERMS I A new five-room house close in and will sell on * terms to suit your pocket book.

With axe held in position ready to deal the fatal blow on the crani um of the supposed-to-be burglar, he stood shivering in the cold mid night air outside the Hotel Northern while Mr. Paine and Dr. Houston skirmished around for an officer, which took some time, so the pris oner was allowed to go inside and be seated, but Stacey stood guard at the door with a grim determination and never gave up his vigil until the culprit was safe in the hands of the officer. GRAND WORTHY MATRON PAYS AN OFFICIAL VISIT Mary J. Powers, grand worthy ma tron of the Order of the Eastern Star of the state of Montana, pnid an official visit to Vista Chapter las evening. The work of the chapter and the initiation of a candidate was exemplified and was pronounced very good. She noted w r ith pleasure that the chapter was in a very flourishing condition.

It was captured at Culbertson and was brought over last week by J. O. Black. It sits on its perch the whole day long, apparently asleep, but after dark is very active and al ways on the look-out for a scrap. —+ The launch is all the rage now days. Lucky is the man who hap pens to be the prossessor of one, and it makes those who do not hap pen to be so fortunate turn green with envy when they see him be seiged by the fair sex clamoring for a ride.
