VOL.1.i GREAT FALL-S,~' MONTAN TERTOY iTHURSDA, JU1N~k ~ ~ - GUITEAU*S POISON BOUQUET Some Facts About the Rosebud Mrs Scoville Gave Her Brother-He Did Not " 'atch On." The cabinet of curiosities .at the dead lotter office, says the :Ohicago News' Washington correspondent contains among other articles of in terest, a lock of Ch les Guiteau's hair. It was sent by t~e assassin to young lady who had written him sympathizing letter, but by some means it was never alled; for, and eventually found its .'ay to the dead letter office. Gon. (etScker, warder of the jail, says Guitean received more letters of condolence than people were aware of. For weeks after the assassination his mail was very heavy. and would frequently exceed a hun dred letters a day. Most of these communications were abusive in char acter, and in many cases threatening. Occasionally a crank like Guitear would write anonymously, commend ing him for his act. "Is it true that Mrs. Scovillo at tempted to cheat the gallows by pro senting her brother with a poisoned bouquet?" was asked. "It is," replied the General. "The night preceding the execution Mrs. Scoville called to see him. She was told she could not, except in my pres ence, and that I was at home ill. She carried in her hand ; beautiful bou quet of roses. She asked permission to present them to her brother, which was granted. As she handed the flow ers through the grating she said. "Notice the center flower especially. It is white and emblematic of your purity and loftiness of purpose." She then departed. I took the notion to drive over to the jail that night. My responsibility was rapidly drawing to an end, and I wanted to be sure ev erything was in shipshape. When I was told about the bouquet I sent for it. It did not occur to me that there was anything wrong about it. I mere ly asked for it as a matter of precau tion. Upon being told what MIrs. Scoville had said about the white flower I examined it more carefully and discovered that it was detached from the others and supported by a long, slender stick, which had evi dently been forced into the center of the bouquet after it was finished. This rather unusual arrangement aroused my suspicions. While examining it more closely a white, powdery sub stance fell into my hand. I sent for one of the chemists of the Smithso nian institute, who pronounced it ar senic, in sufficient quantities to kill half a dozen men. Mrs. Scoville's idea was for Guiteau to chew the bud, for it was really nothing more, and in this way escape the gallows by com mitting suicide. "Why didn't Guitean do this?" "I don't think he understood th significance of his sister's remarks. I he had it is not probable that h would have taken advantage of he Spartan kindness. He did not abai don all hope of a reprieve until tb last moment. He was an arrant coy ard." "Was there any affection betwee him and his family?" - "Very little. Guiteanu himself wt as cold as a fish. I shall never forgo Mrs. Scoville's last interview wit him. She said: 'Well, Charlie, I sul pose you must die. I trust you ar prepared.' S"'Oh yes,' grunted the assassin, 'I'r all right.' "'And you'll go to heaven, Charli and you'll meet our mother ther You'll he glad to see her, won't you, "'I don't know whether I will o not,' replied Guiteau, to whom. th conversation was obviously unpleas ant. 'I suppose if she comes aroun to see me I shall treat her decentl; but I don't care anything about he I never took much stock in my rely tions, anyhow."' A BOSTON ROMANCE. Nineteen years ago a female infai was left with an Irishwoman in Boi -ton. The name of the child was nc given, and the only clew was a hanc kerchief bearing a name, which w€ with the child's effects. All trace a the babe's family connections wei lost, and the little one grew up in ig norance of its father or mother, care for by the old woman and her famil: After a lapse of years a peculia growth appeared on the lid of oneo the child's eyes. She was taken tos ocenlist, who rem rked on the sings larity of the case, and said that bh hid operated pona one other simila case in the co of his practice, an that was upon the eyedot a wealh lady in a eity~ nea to& Rgre y the lon 1idd cew to i -ens h person who 4eo 3 j-it t&ue estr ~ýe was called in, an it was in the pr cess of a long invesfigation developc that the name upon the handkerc1is was the name of the manUfactur-o wife and the girl's mother. The gi was several months ago confronts with her father and mother. A ssetti ment by the payment of several thoi sand dollars for back board, and dan ages, so the story goes, and an annu ty of $1,500 for the daughter, now young lady, was effected, it is saii When the child was abandoned tI husband of the lady was a poor boo] keeper. It was feared, it is said, th; the birth of the baby would anger relative of the mother, who was po sessed of means, and so the child wt given up. To-day the book-keeper: a wealthy manufacturor. He has family who have grown up in entii ignorance of the existence of the: eldest sister.--Boston Journal. GETTING ALEXANDER III.'S SIC NATURE. It happened in the first year of Al exander III.'s reign, to a Samara no e bleman of the name of K. He wanted ;d a Governmental allowance of 200,00( rubles to start his leather manufac le tory. Many big Russian manufactu rers had got considerable sums of Is State money "as an encouragement of s national industry." All was arranged 10 well. Everybody who had to be bribed was bribed. Mr. K. was quite sure of >n success, so far that, returning to Sa mh mara, he did not choose to wait the few weeks that remained before the d Emperor's definitive confirmation, and y. borrowed from a Tartar merchant the ir sum promised him, and set to work at lo once. Great was his disappointment to and despair when he received a tele gram stating bluntly that the Empe to ror did not confirm the allowance. He rushes to St. Petersburg to his pro tectors. How? What is it? Nobody r know. All was done right as promis eed. But the Emperor refused. A whim took him. It is quite incompre hensible. We cannot help it." Mr. K. deemed himself a ruined man. But to one fine morning, when he left the ly Minister of the Interior he was fol lowed by Holonatchalink, head clerb a of one of the numerous offices. The i_ man asked him plainly if he consent zy ed to give him the sum of 10,000 ru is bles if the thing was put right. Mr. , K. exclaimed he would be happy tc it give even 20,000. The clerk refused b- to give any explanation and they part )r ed. The next month Mr. K. received a telegram stating the allowance was r- granted by the Emperor. Full of ex ill ultation, he rushed once more to St. , Petersburg, received his 200,000 d, found the clerk his benefactor and in presented him the 20,000 rubles prom ised. Touched by such an act o0 honesty and faithfulness to a promise escaped in a momentary excitement 1e the clerk said he wanted to trannuil I ize the conscience of Mr. K. by ex ae plaining to him that in obtaining fo' er him the allowance no underhand n- means were employed, and all was ae done with complete honesty and fair ness. He'then told him the small do vice which he used to make the Em 3a peror change his mind. "We have,' he said, "always a great number 0: as things to present for the Emperor's et examination. And we know before th hand what he will be pleased to read p and what will be unpleasant. Now re all depends on the order in which petition such as yours is placed. I: m before it we put four or five thingi which will be unpleasant to the Em e, peror, arriving at your petition he wil .e be in bad humor and will refuse it ?" If, on the contrary, we put before ii or one after another five things that wil e be agreeable to him to read, on reach - ing your petition he will be put ii id good humor and will grant it at once.' Y7 Nothing more simple, indeed. The r. fact is perfectly authentic and would a- be difficult to invent.. A HEALTHY PROFESSION. "Journalism must be a healthy pro at fession," said old Mrs. Squaggs as she laid the paper on her knee and rub ot bed her eyeglasses with her apron d- "What makes you think so?" said old as Mr. Squaggs. "~Because I see thu of writers who used tohavepieces in th re papers whenlIwas a girl are still iv~ - ing and writing away the saine as a ever; they must be very old."

They took t the job, agreeing to remove the dirt at 45 cents a yard. The total amount - they- received for excavating was S$tM61.45, and out of this, clear of all - expenses, they made $331. But bet ter still, they found a streak of "pay dirt" in the excavation, which is in the I famous Last Chance gulch. They took out seventy-one loads of this pay 1 dirt and washed it through sluices for i the gold it contained. The result more than answered their expectations. From the seventy-one loads of dirt they got $504 in gold dust, which they - sold to the U. S. Assay Office here. Total gain on the job, $835.
