Ladies' and gent's session Wednesday afternoon, July 15. I MOW Of NEVER! Hnba was the name gTycn by white settler of Kentucky to an Imllnn girl who lived more than a hundred years ago because her real name was to them difficult to pronounce. It was something meaning laughing girl, the latter port of It being "haha." This appellation was given her on account of her musical laugh not that she laughed a great deal, for the Indians, both men and women, are a stolid race, end a smile is seldom seen on the face of any of them. Ilaha laughed only when especially moved by some happy condition, and then there was some thing catching in her laughter. Even the -chief of . the tribe was kuowa to chuckle on hearing it One day the tribe to which Haha belonged pitched its tepees In the neighborhood of a family of white set tlers named MacDermott, who were f Scotch Irish extraction, as most of the early emigrants to that region were, a hardy race, especially fitted to endure the hardships of a pioneer life. A son, Donald, was a fine, handsome j fellow twenty years of age and as i much adiired by the Indians as by his fellow whites. One spring morning Donald, wtjo was zona of wandering, strucs a stream on the other side of which was a bluff extending perpendicularly from the edge of the water from which it was reflected. The bank on which he stood wan a wooded plain, where grew the wild rye, pea Tine and other herb age, interspersed with various flowers. The birds were singing, the air was fragrant-indeed, nature was that morning In its virgin condition, unde- e polled by man. Suddenly there rang out a peal of melody, a laugh. It had scarcely died away before its echo came back from the cliff opposite. A mocking bird on the branch of a tree over Donald's head heard It and was mightily aston ished. Indeed, he looked indignant that any creature should dare to make more beautiful sounds than he. His throat swelled, and out came a very good imitation of what he bad heard and, like its predecessor, came back lu reduced yolume from the cliff. At that moment the Indian girl, Haha, came pushing aside the under brush, and Donald saw ber stop, part ing it, and look straight at him. She was evidently pleased with the stal wart white man, and he was delighted with the attractive picture before him. RICH MINING REGION. Area Known as the Dillon Quadrangle in Montana Has Produced Millions. About thirty mining districts in south western Montana are described in a re port just issued by the I'nitcd Stats izeolotrical survey as bulletin 074. 1 no Mininir Districts of the Dillon Quad raugle, Montana, and Adjacent Areas," hv A. V. Winclicll. The area described was of great importance in the early de velonmcnt of Montana, for it was the discovery of gold in the streams of this region that led to the influx of popula tion and the eventual settlement of the state. The Dillon quadrangle comprises about 3,200 square miles j the great Ilutte conner-mininsr district is immedi ately not th of it, und indeed two of the Butte smelters are witlun it. The first important discovery of pre cious metal in Montana was made at Bannock, in 1862, and the placers of Bannock are reported to have yielded that yeRr $000,000 iu gold. A far great er strike was made in June of the next year at Alder Gulch. This discovery j caused an extraordinary inriiHii oi goia scekers and led to the founding of a number of towns on Alder creek, the largest of which, Virginia City, had with in a year or so 10,000 inhabitants. It became at once the great center of pop ulation and the capital of the territory, but the inevitable decline soon set in, following the exhaustion of the placers, and in 1874 the capital was transferred to Helena. Alder Gulch is the longest andrichest gold-bearing gulch ever found in Montana, and within the first 20 years its gravels yielded more than $;0,fl00,000 ; in fact, some authors place the output as high as $00,000,000. Dillingham and Prouty. " In Mr. Prouty's letter, in which he en dcavors to define his position on the Senatorial question, he says he is con vineed that "the defeat of Mr. Dilling ham can only bo accomplished by an in dependent movement to which the liberal nd progressive elements of all parties must contribute." In this one sentence Mr. Prouty pavs unintentional tribute to the strength of his opponent. .Sena tor Dillingham has always been a pro gressive man and a Republican and he was elected to the governorship of Ver mont on that ticket; he was also sent to the United States Senate by that party and ho will undoubtedly be re turned this fall by the Republicans and he seeks re-election on the Republican platform, Mr. Prouty lias always been a consist- jnt Republican and has accepted from that party all the honors he has enjoyed. It is not probable that he will gain enough friends through his repudiation 'jf his lifelong party and transfer to a son-partisan ticket to give him the vic tory over Senator Dillingham, whom the people know, and whose interests he has ever been quick to serve. Mr. Prouty has received many honors of the state through the Republicans and should he wish to disavow that party he should do it when he has no axe to grind. If he tmly felt the Republican Now, Donald knew nothing of her party was not the party for him, that be language, and she knew but little of could no longer serve under its banner, i his.

The plant is firmly' rooted here. It represents many thousands of dollars invested in poles, wire, cables, conduits, switchboards, etc. dollars that would shrink to small frac tions if this delicate and costly plant were not maintained at a high degree of efficiency. The exchange's welfare is to a large degree dependent upon Barre's welfare. As Barre . prospers, the exchange prospers. ,. More busi ' ness for Barre means more telephone business, and more telephones mean more workers to install and operate them workers who largely, are local residents, whose expenditures help local business. Our Company is a part of the great Bell Sys tem, which cpnnects 75,000 cities or towns in the United States. But our success as an ex change as a unit of this great system is judged by what we do here in Barre and for Barre. We have every incentive of selfish or civic interest, therefore, to work for efficient tele phone service for Barre, not only that our work may receive official recognition and reward, but also that our friends and neighbors may be well served, and that, these local industries whose patronage furnishes us our bread and butter may have our hearty co-operation and support. It is in this spirit we seek additional patron age, and express a desire to receive suggestions that will make the service of the Barre Central Office a matter of even greater local pride.
