ONE JAMES TEMAN TRIES TO
ESCAPE BUT IS UNSUCCESS
Kamoops, B. C.. Aug. 10. Jas. le
man who shot Constable Astern, and
Takupshi. a Jap who killed a country
man near here, were both hanged to
day. Yesterday Toman tried to escape
when being served with dinner. He
made a dash through the door as it
was opened to hand a tray. He then I
threw pepper in the eves of Constable
Simson and tried to hit him. His
obieet was to overpower him, seize 1
the kevs and unlock the door of the of- I

written and which left a clear field !

Washington. Aug. 12.—Who said that
Uncle Sam has no sense of humors? j
Well, whoever vouchsafed the state- !
ment has another guess coming, for j
Uncle Sam is setting up in business as !
a humorist. This, at least, is the infer- j
ence from an official publication issued
ed with pepper felled Teman with a
blow on the head. Teman had se
cured pepper from day to day and
placed it in a paper bag. The con
demned Jap was in the same cell and
witnessed the scene but took no part
in it. Two others in the room at the
time got out of the way of the pepper
shower. It is said that Teman's real
name is Talker and he came from
North Dakota two years ago.

titled, "The Gases of Emmental
Cheese," which opens with these start
ling words: "Why Holes in Cheese?
What makes them and what do they
Then the report proceeds to discuss
the holes In the Swiss cheese and
promptly ceases to be humorous. It
seems that the fault with American
Swiss cheese is that our manufacturers
are not able to get the proper holes in
it. The holes are caused by formation
of carbon dioxide and nitrogen gas.
But the carbon dioxide in the gas that
really puts the holes in the cheese, and
it is due to thegaseous fermentation of
the sugar in the milk. The milk—
liich is goats—has to be good, and the
method proper. Uncle Sam is going to
undertake to teach the farmers of the
ountry and the dairymen how to make
Swiss cheese properly. A big is also
necessary—an anaerobic bacterium.
For, really, it is the anaerobic, etc.,
who is really the guy that puts the
holes in the cheese. Meanwhile when
you buy Swiss cheese, you should be
sure to see that you get the full weight
due you in holes.

DESERT LAND ENTRYMEN
Bozeman, Aug. 13.—By a decision re
ceived today at the local land office
confirming the local decision in the
case of Mrs. E. L. Houston, contest
ant, against B. W. Spaulding, a desert
land entryman, the desert land act, as
it has ordinarily been interpreted here
tofore. is virtually repealed, according
to the opinion of the register of the lo.
cal office. The contestant alleged
that the land in question was not des
ert land, as other land in the neighbor
hood of similar character, under mo
dern methods of farming, was yielding
profitable crops without irrigation.
The decision recognizes the modern
methods of farming dry land, and holds
that under the circumstances the land
cannot he classified as desert land and
gives the case to the contestant. Jt is
stated by the attorney for the entry
man that the ease will be apealed to
the secretary of the interior. It is gen
erally understood that the tract of
land in question is substantially simi
lar to much that has heretofore been
proved upon as a desert land claim and

150 IN GOLD FOR BIG POTATO;
$75 OFFERED FOB SAG'! OF THEM
Montana hes long had a reputation
as a potato country. No section of
the world can produce finer varieties
of the tube: than the Treasure State.
As proof of this attention has often
been called to the fact that the Bur
lington railroad maintains a farm In
ihis state where are grown all of the
1 tatoes used on the dining cars of
that system. What this means is bet
tn appreciated when it is recalled
that the Burlington pierces such
states as Iowa, Illinois, Nebraska. Min
nesota, Missouri and Colorado, in all
of which the potato crop has long
been a leading industry.
Tn the irrigated portions of Mon
tana. the valleys of the Gallatin, the
Yellowstone, in the Bitter Root, the
Flathead, on the dry farming benches
of Northern Montana, Dawson and
Fergus counties, in fact in every sec
tion of Montana, potatoes which defy
comparison are grown and the inter
est the farmers are manifesting in
this crop during the present year is
greater than ever.
Because >f this fact the officers of
the Monta; . State Fair, who are work
ing for a "Greater Montana" in every
line, are offering special inducements
to potato growers to exhibit at thq
fair this fall (Sept. 23 to 28). Aside
from the regular cash prizes offered
by the fair management the board of

TRADING STAMPS HELP
COST OF LIVING.
New Y'ork, Aug. 12.—It is probable
that at the next meeting of the Nation
al Merchants' Association, some effort
will be made to inaugurate a crusade
against the trading btamps, by a com
mittee composed of business men, fi
nanciers and economists who have
been looking into the conditions which
are responsible for the high cost of
living throughout the country. The
committee, which is still at work on
the question, is doing its principal
work in this city, but reports are being
received from all parts of the country
on the subject.
It is argued that trading stamps,
considered by many storekeepers as a
mitigated nuisance, add about 3 per
cent to the cost of food supplies and
persistent advertising of a special
brand of food increases prices by com
pelling a storekeeper to lay in a stock
f it, although he has on hand the same
stock without the advertised brand.
