Shortly after County Attorney Slat tery received the telegram last Fri day morning from Culbertson, tell ing him of the killing of a rancher named Roy Jimeson, near that place, by a neighbor named Chauncey (Pat) Gould, both the County Attorney and Under-Sheriff Art Heiland were on their way to the scene of the trag edy via auto. Their auto was left at Sidney and a larger one substituted in order to take with them, John H. Smith, Jus tice of the Peace, who presided at the inquest as coroner; a stenogra pher; and an undertaker named Wm. Coombs.

Fire Chief Guy Saves Jewels. A burning circus car, which was at first thought to be one of the grain elevators, was the cause of consider able excitement yesterday afternoon. The city fire department was called out to extinguish the blaze that start ed in one of the sleeping cars, No 26, of the Al G. Barnes Wild Animal Circus, which was lying on the ele vator track near the upper Merrill Ave., railroad ice house. The car, which was next to the last in the circus train, was discovered to be ablaze shortly before 3:30 o' clock, by a Japanese circus attend ant named Naka, who was asleep in the adjoining car at the time. He was badly burned about the head and eyes in a fruitless attempt to exting uish the flames, which by that time were making their way through the ventilators, aided by a strong wine. Alarms were turned in by M. M. Shockley of the Eastern Montana Elevator; John Osland, manager of the Hart-Parr Co., and by another party whose name could not be learned up to a late hour tonight. The circus crew used their chem ical truck without success and at 3:40 o'ciock, the city had one hose playing on the burning car. At 3:45, the N. P. Ry. Fire Car No. 671, in charge of Master Mechanic Johnson, assisted by Tod Sloan, Supt. of B. & B., arrived on the scene and in a short time the flames were subdued. Much credit must be given the rail road company officials who quickly attached an engine to the train, in which three cars were then burning, and moving it further up the track, prevented, what for a time was thought, the complete destruction of both elevators and the adjacent build ings. The car contained the sleeping apartment of Charles Cook, Supt. of the show, and his wife, Martha Flor ine, the wild animal trainer, as well as th? berths of 23 musicians, the three Scottish Highlanders and some (Continued on Last Page) Catholic Ladies Organize Daughters of Isabella Organization Court 239, Installed Sunday. Thirty-three Members Initiated. First Court In Montana Sunday was indeed a happy day for the thirty-three Catholic ladies who were initiated into the newly formed Organization Court 239 of the Daughters of Isabella. The services began with Holy Mass in St. Juliana's Catholic Church at 8:30 a. m., at which all the ladies received Holy Communion, and end ed with a banquet at the Jordan Hotel in the evening. The ladies assembled at 8:15 o' clock at the home of Mrs. Margaret Boden, and from there went to the church in a body. After Mass, a most delightful and beautifully appointed breakfast was served at the home of Mrs. Katherine O'Neil, under the direction of the en tertainment Committee and their wil ling helpers. Directly after the breakfast, a most interesting address was made by Mrs. J. J. Kann, of Mi not, N. D., one of the members of the organizers' degree team of that city, in which a history of the order was given. Mrs. Kann stated that the Daughters of Isabella was organized in the year 1903 in Utica, N. Y., by members of the Knights of Colum bus. The order wras founded to ad vance the religious and moral educa tion, as well as to assist in the moral and social up lift, of Catholic women. Its object is "Unity and Charity." The exemplification meeting, the luncheon, and the work of installa tion took place in Krug Hall from three to four o'clock in the afternoon. The banquet, of which Mrs. Slattery was a most delightful toastmistress, I j j VALUE OF CERTIFICATES New Subscriptions Six Months, $1.00 counts 200 votes One Year, $2.00 counts 400 votes Three Years or longer, every dollar counts 300 additional votes.

Two hundred and thirty-nine courts have already been installed in thirty-four states in the Union, the total membership reaching into the tens of thousands. The Glendive court is the first one to be installed in Montana, and as Mrs. O'Neil very fittingly remarked; "Very appropriately so, Glendive be ing Montana's Gate City." The only other courts west of Glendive are lo cated in Lewistown, Idaho; Sheridan, Wyoming; and Spokane, Wash. Mrs. H. K. Schuster of Wibaux, was the only out of town lady to join the organization at Sundays' services. The ladies in charge of the Or ganization work were: Mrs. J. J. Kann, Mrs. Robinson, Mrs. Dewire, Miss Josephine Vandenoever, Miss Alice Falvey and Miss May Scho field, all of Minot. The officers for the coming year were elected at the afternoon meet ing. There will be a large initiation in the Fall and it is expected that every Catholic lady in Glendive and vicinity will take advantage of the opportunity to become a member of what is conceded to be the most in spiring fraternal order under the auspices of the Catholic Church in America.
