Show me the oung man, I dare say elder, too, whose heart would not dilate at such a chance. OlothiOng, You might well be satisfied with the material, but you wouldn't put up with that style of Smakeup. Correct style is of pre-eminent importance to every man. You had better look through your wardrobe to see what you need in Suits or Overcoats & Longley for fall or winter, and if you find you are shy a Coat or Suit, you ought to prepare to supply your wants early. We like to show you our line, and if we haven't got the thing you like, let us have it made to your measure according to your individual taste, and amount of money you feel ats. like putting into it. We can have Suits made to your measure to satisfy anybody's fancy at prices ranging from $17.50 to $40.00 The $17.50 Suit will receive the same consideration and careful ness in workmanship as the $40.00 Suit. - Agency for 1 Ca et Tailoring Co. THE BEE HIVE, J. J. Stipek, Prop. TFien& Marks JOHN BOYD, father of Capt. Wm. Boyd, suffocated in his home while trying to rescue the family. Two unknown men, whose bones were found in the ruins of the Michi gan hotel. Unknown man burned in the Coeur d'Alene hotel. WILLIAM HEARMOUTH, Winni peg, fire fighter, single. JOE FRENE, fire fighter, single; suffocated in tunnel on Placer creek. Four unidentified fire fighters, suffo cated on Placer creek. Unidentified fire fighter, burned to death near Mullan. In a tunnel of the old War Eag'e mine on Placer creek seven miles from Wallace, 41 men under Forest R tnge Pulaskie were packed tightly together to escape a sheet of flame that swept down the gulch. They hugged the ground and buried their faces in the mud on the floor of the tunnel until the fire went by, when, half mad with the heat, they ran and threw themselves in the creek. Five were left dead in the tunnel and an other, cut off from the crew, was found burned to a cinder. With daylight, a relief expedition will be organized to go to Placer and Big creeks, where the fire fighters' camps are located. These men have been scattered over the country, driven hither and thither by the flames. At War Eagle tunnel, three miles from Wallace, six dead were found and two were badly injured. The dead in the tunnel had sought refuge. They lay with their faces in the water, covered with wet blankets and had died partly from the fire and partly from suffoca tion by smoke. The injured were relieved with olive oil and brought to the hospitals. At Big creek 12 dead recovered, two injured and three unfortunates who were completely blinded. One fighter was found dead near Mullan and 16 who were more or less seriously injured. At Pine creek three are dead, five blinded and five others otherwise injured. Montana State Fair Helena, Mont., Aug. 20.-The eighth Montana State Fair in this city, Sept. 26 to Oct. 1., will have one of the most remarkable attrac tions ever seen in the northwest, this being none other than daily flights by one of the world's best known aviators-Curtiss of New York. The management has just signed a contract with this well known master of the air, under the terms of which he is to make daily flights at the fair grounds in this city, and furthermore he is to ex hibit in no other city of the west except at the Spokane fair. Curtiss uses a model biplane that closely resembles the Wright ma chine-in which some of the now existing world's record flights were made this year, and that his efforts at the Montana state fair will be with the object of establishing still greater feats cannot now be too strongly set forth. It is certain that he will establish new records for the western part of the nation. His contract provides that Curtiss must remain in the air at least ten min utes and achieve an altitude of ful ly fifty feet-this being the mini mum. Thus, all fair visitors are assured the witnessing of a feat, the achievements along which line have been the subject of more discussion in the public press than any other accomplishment in recent years. The fair management also an noui ices another feature which must necessarily appeal to all Montanans -a cowboys' relay race. This is to be run at the rate of three miles a day and with three daily changes before the grandstand. The rules for this contest provide that all pa tent mechanisms must be barred, or in other words, that each animal must be unsaddled and the fresh horse saddled in the regulation man ner with the ordinary cinch. Already a large number of entries have been received and Secretary Martin expects that several others will follow, thus indicating that there will be a large number of con testants. Relay races have invaria bly proved popular features, and this year will be no exception. Al ready several strings of horses are in training at the grounds, so that the animals will become accustomed to the stunts expected from them, for in these races a great deal de pends upon the rapidity with which the rider may transfer his saddle to the waiting animal. In addition to the cowboys' relay race there will be the regular run ning and harness events, and re specting these Secretary Martin states that all races have been fairly well filled. The automobile races will also prove to be as popular as ever. Indeed, judging from the great number of entries, they will be more exciting than ever.

The atmospheric conditions which prevailed in this locality last Mon day have probably not been dupli cated within the memories of the oldest inhabitants. A dense pall of smoke had drifted down from the forest fire area in the western part of the state during Sunday night, and when morning dawned, the sun, although it could not pierce the dense clouds, diffused an iridescent glow that illuminated the horizon in all directions. Although the light was far from having the equality of day, it was several times more bril liant than bright moonlight. The comparatively dim morning fooled many residents, however, and the number of late risers was legion. All forenoon it was necessary to keep lights burning in a majority of the places of business. How brilliant was the artificial il lutmination and its resemblance to nearby forest fires may be judged from the fact, that a number of far mers, suddenly grown apprehensive, hastily plowed fireguards around their places. The Gate City had the appearance of reating in the glow A New Arid Land Alfalfa Experienced farmers in Spokane county believe that the discovery of wild alfalfa, known to botanists as "medgicaga falcata," in Bonner county, Idaho, by W. H. Heideman, superintendent of the sulb-experi ment station, conducted by the Uni ted States government at Clagstone, Idaho, will solve the problem of dry land forage crops. The plant, which thrives in arid districts, where oth ers die from heat and lack of mois ture, is similar to tame alfalfa. The blossom is a pinkish white and re sembles the plant brought to this country from Russia by Professor Hanson of South Dakota, who was sent abroad by the government to find a plant adapted to semi-arid districts. The pods are the same size and shape as those of tame al falfa. Mr. Heideman found the plants in the Hoodoo valley, former _ Ill~d L II i iL emanating from a mighty blast fur nace. Reports from nearby places tell of similar conditions. Travelers west ward bound from Dakota points al so say that artificial illumination was the rule during Monday because of the dense canopy of smoke. On Tuesday conditions were near ly normal and yesterday the last of the smoke was dissipated by the coming of the spl. ndid rain. As announced elsewhere in this is sue, loss of life and property from the terrible fires has been very great. H-ow much loss of life has occurred can be but remotely guess ed at, as whole parties of fire figh ters are reported missing. It has been necessary to run Northern Pa cific trains over the Gr-at Northern tracks from Helena west Yesterday word from Helena not ified the members of Company I, the local militiamen, to hold themselves in readiness to proceed westward at once if conditions necessitated the move. Gov. Norris is sparing no efforts in lending assistance to sup press the awful conflagrations. ly given over to placer gold miners, in a spot where there is no chance for even nature to sub-irrigate plant life and where all vegetation is practically dead. Professor Heide man has sent specimens of the plant to prominent botanists for examina tion and identification. Experts say the plant has been searched for all over the world the last 10 years.
