It hasben suggested whIle our legisla ture Is in session it would be well te draw their attention to the fact that there is no record of either births or deaths it this supposedly civilised state. To record marriages and neglect the births and deathsln our communities is certainly glaring inconsistency. One officer could aheand to all these affairs without dim ashy. Men are dying every day. Wh( are they Who can tell wat properties haershi s. etc., may be involved in theit deaths? Children are being born-wht esastell la years to come what ,may be the outcome of such births? Records should be kept and the sooner the better for the good of the whole state. SUNDAY'S DAILY. John Lepley came down from Helena yesterday. Miss Carry Patch of Truly, is visiting in the oty.

On Jan. 1, Murphy, Maclay & Co. adopted the strict cash system and have had now an experience of just a month and a half under the new regime. Inter viewed yesterday on the subject Mr. Maclay said they are more than pleased with the results and are fully convinced now that it is the correct method of doing business, being In the interest of both the merchant and his customers. Belling for cash only the merchant can ofer his goods at the lowest possible margin and the buyer receives a decided benefit in the transaction. Murphy, Maclay & Co. report that their busiuess during January past, on the cash basis, was 100 per cent. greater than for the corresponding mouth of last year and it is needless to say they see no possible objection to the new sys tem. Under no consideration could they be induced to go back to the credit sys tem and many of their customers who are enabled to buy cheap goods for cash are just as solicitous that they should not do so.

THE HEW BACH-CORY BLOCKS A Handsome Pressed Brick and Stone Building Nearly Ready for Occupancy. THE NEW HOME OF THE RAINBOW CLUB The Cascade Steam Laundry Start Up Their New Machinery To morrow. The Finest Laundry West of St. Paul and the Second of Its Kind in Existence. It is with commendable pride that a habitant of Great Falls points tothe new and imposing block of Bach, Cory & Co. It impresses one with a feeling of ms siveness and stability characteristic of the sterling qualities that have succeeded in building upthis monumentof business energy and pluck. A Taznuua repre sentative made a hasty inspection of the building yesterday and found painters and carpenters busy as bees put ting on the finishing touches. The main stairway and elevator are not yet put In, but with the present force it will not take many days to complete it. The cage for the elevator is here and all the other ap pliances for it are on hand ready to be put in position. The elevator will be worked by means of hydraulic water pressure,which is the safest and most ex peditious means of communication. Be sides the passenger elevator there is one for freight which runs only to the store room of the company on the second floor, In the basement are located the boilers for steam-heating and also an immense storeroom for goods, etc. On the first floor and fronting on Cen tral avenue will be the immense store of the firm, the main room being 80x98 feet, The Northwestern National bank will also be on this floor, occupying the cor ner of the building on Central avenue and Park drive. On the second floor are eleven large rooms cut up into suites and suitable for office purposes. A large store room for Bach, Cory & Co., Is alsl here, and takes up about half the space on the floor. On the third floor are sixte-u rooms arranged so that they may be used for offices or as bedrooms. They are large, t airy, have goid ventilation and plenty of light. The fourth floor is almost taken up by the Rainbow club and has been especially 0 laid out and planied for their conven ience and comfort. Their apartments are not yet finished, but when completed will be marvels of ease and luxurious nose. They have an assembly room, large d cafe, billiard room, parlor, committee g room, kitchen, etc., in all, seven rooms. These are fitted up with gas and electric e ity, electric bells, and all the modern conveniences. The rooms are finished in n heavy oak, oil polished and have a sub I stancial appearance. When furnished t tse club will have a home second to none h in the northwest. y Each floor is provided with a fire-plug e and seventy-five feet of hose to be used in case of fire. On the different floors are o located sinks, closets, etc., and right here b we must express our surprise and admara t tion at the thoroughness of the plumb ing work. We doubt if there is another building in Great Falls which can equal f it in sanitary conditions. W. G. towen e did the wi.rk and we are glad of an op o- portunity to give him this just mead of praise. e William Roberts superintended the r building, and 14ubottom & Gilchrist are e doing the painting and finishing. I. F. d McDavitt is the architect. n The building throughout is finished in bard wood oil polished, and in a few days d will amply repay a visitof inspection. THE CASCADE STEAM LAUNDRiY. n The sest Equipped Lauadry West of St. Paul. A model institution and the second of its kind in existence, the other being the IIenmepin laundry of Minneapolis, is the sCacade steam, or, more properly speak a ing, the Cascade Electric Laur.dry. In order to keep up with its growing busi ness the proprietors, Messrs. Jensen & Johnson, have been obliged to add an ad ditional building of 22x100 feet to keep n up with the march of progress made by our city within the last twelve months. New boilers, new engines, new appli ances have necessarily followed until m now Great Fails can boast of the econd Id electric laundry in existence. The elec- I tricity is generated on the premises. In at order to do so it became necessary to put ,d in new boilers and a 28 horse automatic ie engine. This furnishes the motive power e- for the machinery and also for a 140 k light dynamo of 16-candle power. This is dynamo supplies the electricity for light ing the building and for heating the ma chinery used for Ironing purposes. It is rd the electric heating appliances that we on especially desire to call the attention of as our readers. This is the latest known le application of electricity to laborlacving ed devices. There are two shirt bosom be Ironers, one shirt-body Ironer, and sk eight sad-irons heated by this process. Mr. Thiel the electrician a ho is putting in the works after seeing how per fectly the sad-Irons worked remarked to a TRIBUNE representative that he would certainly put in one for his own wife. All the ironer has to do is to turn the switch and in three minutes the iron is ready to be used and the beauty of it is the top hart never got, hot. The wire conduct int the electricity to the Iron is kept out of the way by means of a steel spring which allows perfect freedom in the use of it. This ought to be seen by every good house wife to be appreciated. But to return to the new building. In The basement are located the boiler and engine, the electric plant, two Cambridge washers,twocontrifugal eztractors,a shirt starcher, a collar and cuff starcher, a big 400 gallon hot water tank, a 10-rack dry room and the marking department. On the first floor is the largest make of mangle which is used for ironing sheets, pillow cases, table linens etc., two bozom irmners, the eight sad irons are on this floor, and the two shirt ironers, beside an office. The second floor is fitted up for room ers. The new machinery works to perfec tion and will be put into active operation tomorrow. The Cascade laundry fur nishes employment to between 16 and 17 hands. This is certainly a model Institution and one in which the public are invited to inspect.
