Women of Underworld Fails in At tempt to Poison Herself Yesterday Morning. Grace Daley, a denizen of the twilight zbne, made an unsuccess ful attempt yesterday morning about two o'clock to end her life by tak ing an ounce of carbolic acid. Shortly after taking the poison, other inmates of the place became aware of her condition, and a physician was immediately sum moned who found her in a serious plight. Antidotes were administer ed and lifë sustained until the dan gerous point was pased. It is not thought at this time that her con dition is serious. Despondency is given a s the cause of hpr attempt to do away with herself. doth Dt in mint Locked Horns Tell Story of Con flict Between Two Bucks for Supremacy. Reuben Shafford, Ren Johnston and Ralph Dickenson, came in from the Johnston ranch at the head of Willow' creek in the Snowy moun tains Wednesday,brought with them two pairs of deer horns, which have a Chinese puzzle beaten forty differ ent ways, the prongs being so se curely interlocked with each other so as to defy all attempts to part them. They were found in the mountains in the condition described, and tell a story of a fierce conflict between the two noble antlered beasts that bore them. Here the two rivals met to fight for supremacy, and what a fight it must have been in which there was to be no survival of the fittest, can be vividly pictured in the imagination. Both contest ants wfent down in the conflict, leaving some other lucky, altho chances are, not as worthy, buck as leader of the herd. The stags were both five years old, each horn hav ing five points. The horns are in an excellent state of preservation, and it is conjectured that the fight which resulted so disastrously to both, happened about a year or two ago.

Hechtman, of Butte, who has been in Roundup the past week, has decided to open a gent's furnish ings store here, and yesterday stated to The Record that he would be ready for business next week.

Langdon was assaulted and badly beaten up by a bunch of drunken foreigners in the railroad yards hereMonday morn ing. The officer was unconscious for about half an hour when he was found and taken home, where his condition was quite serious for sev eral daj's. He is now recovering from his injuries and will be able to tesify at the trial of the thugs which will be held tomorrow. According to the story as told by Mr. Langdon, the trouble occurred between one and two o'clock Mon day morning. A bunch of about twelve or fifteen men, all more or less intoxicated, were congregated on the depot platform when a freight train pulled in from the west. As the train was passing by one or two of them insisted on grabbing for the rods on the side of the cars, and Officer Langdon, fearing that they might get hurt, pulled them away and told them to keep off. At this he was set upon by practically the whole bunch, and altho he de fended himself for a while, lie was soon overcome. Not being satis fied with only knocking him down, they kicked him into insensibility and left him. Seven of the party were arrested Monday and placed in jail. They were arrainged before Judge Martin Tuesday and their hearing set for tomorrow when the county attorney will be down to take charge of the prosecution. In default of bail, which was placed in the sum of $1,000 each, they were again con fined in jail to await their hearing. The seven under arrest are Mat Reski, Anton Mihalovich. John Mihalovich, Andrew Mans, Peter Antonich, Alex Zvanovich and Mike Mirlklch. All of these are miners employed at No. 2. mu «I Preliminary Steps Taken to Or ganize Club Along Athletic Lines. At a meeting held in Attorney Carl N. Thompson's office Tuesday evening, preliminary steps were taken toward the organization of a club along athletic lines. It had been the intention first to simply organize a basket ball or indoor base ball team, but the sentiment of the meeting was so unanimously in favor of an organiza tion of a wider scope, taking in all indoor and outdoor sports, that it was decided to go ahead along those lines. It will be one of the aims of the club, after getting lined out properly, to acquire club rooms and fitting out a gymnasium. The temporary officers are A. W. Eiselein, president, and Prof. F. C. Dralle, sectary. A committee consisting of F. C. Dralle, Harold Ridgeway and "Happy" Kibble was appointed to draft a constitution and set of by-laws. Another meeting will be held next Tuesday evening at which time a permanent organization will be af fected. Everybody interested i n the movement should make it a point to be present at this meeting. Jéhn R. Raftey, editor and owner of the Treasure State, arrested on a charge of criminal libel perferred by Mayor Frank J. Edwards, was bound over to the district court after a premliminary hearing in the justice court, before Judge O'Don nell, of Helena. □ □ UK UKi Ü ïtittoln 30' ^ARK were the clouds that hovered over thee, Dear land, deep the encircling gloom, Blasted the fate of blood-bought Liberty, Wide yawned the nation's waiting tomb; When from the West, whither thy fortune ran. Up from the woods and plains God raised a man. The wild bird takes its long, unerring flight. By what strange guidance none shall say; Stars in their endless courses ride the Night, Sunbeams unfold the curtained Day; Waves of the ocean find the distant shore, Winds of the trackless air blow evermore. No inspiration, faith or prophecy The ways of Providence reveals; No miracle from Life's deep mystery Its dearly treasured secret steals: Who holds it in the hollow of His hand. He, only He, can see and understand. Spirit of Lincoln, giv'n a while to men, To teach and save, thy mission o'er, His voice it was that called thee once again. And softly through the open door Of starry ways, miraculous, led on— And nations bowed their heads when thou wert gone. —W. P. II.. In thm Ohio Magaat ne. DTPUTT ÏÏALD0 It» Popular Deputy Sheriff Steps Down From Official Position. "Hank" Waldo, who has held the important position of deputy sheriff here ever since activities commenced in the Roundup coal field, resigned bis commission the first of the week and is now a civilian like the rest of us. Altho "Hank" was peculiarly well qualified to serve as deputy sheriff, being n crack shot, tireless in running down criminals, and knowing this section of the country as an open book, lie has come to the conclusion that other lines of endeavor held out better opportunities for him. Dur ing his incumbancy as peace of ficer he has acquitted himself with much credit, and has been instru mental in bringing before the bar of justice many wrong doers. He has not yet decided what he will do, but will in all probability con tinue to make Roundup his home. J. M. Pyles, who has been city marshal, has been appointed deputy sheriff in place of Mr. Waldo.
