GUNS KILL FANATICS Paris, Aug. 21.—The oorreapon dent of the Matin at Caaa Blanca, Morocco, speaks in loud praise of 75 military guns, 14 rounds of which, he says, put 1500 Arabs to flight. In attacking the camp on the right the Arab horsemen galloped to with in 100 yards of the French position, where two rapid fire guns had been mounted on the roof of tbe farm building. These guns opened Are with 500 shots per minute, swept tbe ground with a rain of lead and cover ed it with dead and dying. The Spahis, tbe oorreapondnt con tinues*, were a brave sight as they rode back to camp. Men and bortes were covered with blood and their faces blackened with powder. Tbe attacking tribes Sunday were Senitta and Zianda, who are uew oomers and who are fighting for the first time. It is announced that a number of Kabeles are marching from Mazagua to Casa Blanca with the intention of delivering a formidable attack short ly.

GENTRY BROS SHOW COMING Trained Animals of all Kinds to Perform for Public. That department of the circus world especially devoted to tbe en tertainment of the yonnger generation and presided over by tbe Gentry Brothers ia to Inaugurate the local tented acasou Mon., Sept. 2, with an exhibition of trained animals, as has mads the name ot Gentry synonymous with Santa Claus in the mind of the little ones and those who look after their happiness. Daring the two decades tbe Gentry Brothers have been catering to tbe amusement partrozdxing public they have suooeevfully specialized in train | | j 1 | ed dogs, monkeys, ponies and other small animals, whose prefonnance has had an individuality and a sup erior quality which have given the Gentry shows a clintele whose num ber and enthusiasm go hand in baud. The "cleanest circus in the world" has however, experienced a change and an increase in size during ttie past year which will make its coming more than ever an event to those who like tented shows and who believe that there is more of good medicine in a day uudei the tent than in many weeks of more orthodox summer re sorting. During former years tbe | Gentrys have placed eulour an "east ern" or "No 1" show and a "west ern" or "No 2" show, but duriug last winter the Gentry properties passed into the ownership ot M. VV. | Savage, proprietor o! the inter j national Stock Food company, ot 1 Minneapolis, owner of Dan Fateh, the | worlds' greatest pacing horse, and a number of other investments, and this change of ownership bas given the show a ciia ige of policy which has combined tbe two shows and given this season's enterprise the appellatioti, the Geutry Brothers' Famous Shows, United. In this merging of tiie two tented exhibitions tbe familiar features which have incereased the popularity of the Gentry shows for many are retained and while tbe children aud "grown upa" who attend during the two performances given in Coeur d' Alene will again be delighted by the remarkable intelligence shown by the ponies, dogs aud monkeys, tbe un ited shows will present several fea tures not hitherto associated with the name of Gentry. The stellar feature of ull features this season is the original Mrs. Gen. Tom Thumb, widow of tbe famous Gen. Tom Thumb and present wife of Count Primo Magri. to whom she was married 18 years ago. With this interesting couple will be tbe oount's brother, Baron Magri, the trio bolding receptions from a plat form just inside tbe main entrance each afternoon and evening prioi to the performance. Mrs. Gen. Tom Thumb is undoubtedly tbe most widely known human "diminutive*' before the public, with whom she has been on speak i 11 g terms for nearly fifty years. Also with the Gentry shows this season will be a herd of trained elephants, whose elephant band aud elephant supper contribute joy to the performance, a herd of baby camels, trained pigs, sheep, geese an-1 other animals, all giving substantiation to (Continued ou page 4.) SPIKES LOOSE TIEC Df TIES ROTTEN Riding Rails of Death on Great Northern Spokane, Wash., Aug. 21.—Dan gerous conditions were found to exist by a Spokesman Relvew represen tativo, who walked over the Great Northern track* from Colbert jun ction to Elk, since the Milan wreck, for the purpose of making a careful examination of the oonditiou of the road. In addition to a general in spection, a careful examination waa made of more tnan 25 different rails, (he aoundneas of the ties tested with a heavy hatchet and theapikea cloaely scrutinized to ascertain whether they were doing their part toward holding the rails In place There are soma stretehea of track on the 15 miles between Colbert and Elk which are in fairly good condi tion, aud there are also piaoes over which it looks like aulolde tost tempt to run a train at fast speed. The greatest fault with the track ia Hie looseness of spikes, nearly 50 per cent ot which are either of no use at all in their present condition, or are partly worked out of tbe tie, so as not to hold the rail firmly In place. The dangerous condition of the road may be summed up In the fol lowing: Twenty one rails selected at random showed 335 spikes out of a total of 686 to be either not touoh iug rail at all, or to have worked up until the head waa clear of rail base. This is nearly 50 per oent of looae splkea. Ties examined under 20 rails sel ected at random show that out of 323 ties 147 were bad, either from being cut through by the-fails or decayed so as to be unsafe. 8oma of these ties were so soft that « hatchet could be buried In theflr 'I# the handle at a blow. Others were either season cracked or shattered by the weight of heavy engines into several pieces, tbe spikes merely rest ing iu tbe macks. Track ran in a wave before a bevay train, the oscillation of the rails being from two to (our Inches as tbe wheels passed over them. Many ties so looae that stepping on one end would cause far end to rise ami strike rail base. Uneveness in roadbed, causing weight ot train to rest on a few ties, cutting them through. PHONES IN RESERVE Government Plans Extensive System of Lines. Spokane, Wash., Aug. 21.—"One of the greatest feats of modem tele KNOCKS OUT BOOZE MAN There appears to be a spirit of re form throughout the county of Kootenai and tbe state of Idaho. Since the court upheld, yesterday, the action of tbe countv commissioners iu denying a lioenae to W. 11. Loper, of Hellgrove, for a aaioon, tbe com uiissers have refused an applicant of Rose Lake a license. Tbe reasons are praotioally the same, there beiog a large lumber plant there and the 1 lack of police protection. It ia also i claimed that tbe extremely thirsty may walk two and one half miles to Lane and quench their thirst. It ia j said tbe court's action will affect nu- . rnerous little towns and localities throughout the oounty. Not only are tbe residents and officials struck by tbe moral wave but it is understood the lumber com panies generally are fighting the lo cation of saloons near their camps and mills, aliegiug that numerous mishaps aie directly attributable to the saloon. In tbe evidenoe jester- j day, B. K. Lewis claimed the dsatb of a certain ruan who lost bis life while iu tbe employ of tbe company : and for which tbe company waa| sued, losing tbe case, was directly traceable to whiskey. It was tbe lumber company at Roee Lake that fought tbe aaioon tbe hardest before the county commiMionera. There are several licenses applied for, which will be considered by tbe com missioners iu tbe near future and it is stated In the majority of oases, they will be denied for tbe above phone building is being accomplish ed by government service men on the Washington east foiest reserve ou Lake Chelan, west of Spokane, where it is necessary to lower liuemeu by means of rope and pul leys and at tach the line bracket* to rock by drilling holes Into solid lava form ation.
