That was rather an unusual spec tacle that occurred in the Federation of Women's Clubs at Los Angeles last week when the election of officers was taking place. Mrs. Platt-Decker, of Denver, was nominated for president in opposition to Mrs. Denison, but contrary to her oft-repeated declara tion that she favored Mrs. Denison and would not accept the position. But she was nominated just the same, and judging from reports might pos sibly have been elected, but she was true to her word and insisted upon her name being withdrawn. Men sometimes stand straight by their dec larations. but not always. It is a great temptation to permit ones self to be honored aud llattered by being forced to accept a nomination or an election, but how admirable it is for one to be true to themselves aud their friends, as Mrs. Platt-Decker was. She ought to be honored by the Fed eration sometime for that splendid act. It was similar to the course pursued by our late martyred President McKinley when his admirers insisted upon nomi nating him for president at the Min neapolis convention in 1892. He had his name withdrawn, though he would probably have been nominated. He was afterwards rewarded. A novel feeling of leaping, bounding impulses goes through your body.

SPRINGS WEEKLY STAR. Publisluid at The Only Carlsbad of America. IIOT SPRINGS, SOUTH DAKOTA, FRIDAY, MAY 16, 1902. HILLS PIONEERS COMING Planning an Excursion Sometime in June to Hot Spring*. The directors are at work with the management of the Burlington and the Elkhorn roads with reference to an ex cursion to Hot Springs for their annu al outing and picnic, which if satisfact orily arranged wiil occur some time in June, after the eighth day of that month. The directors have planned a journey to the beautiful resort on one of the roads and return on the other which would give those desiring to make the trip plenty of time at the Carlsbad and also a scenic view of some of the most picturesque scenes in the Black Hills. The directors of the Pioneers are now awaiting to see if the railroad companies will give a good rate that will make the trip one which can be afforded by all. In the event that the decision is made favorable to Hot Springs a trip will be had that will be worth taking by all who admire the beauty of Mother Nature as she puts on the beautiful coats, at the time that the trip will be taken. As soon as the officials of the railroads are ready to submit their rates the directors of the society will hold a meeting and de termine whether or not they will accept them.—Deadwood Independent (12).

The Evans Opens. The Evans hotel was opened Thurs day morning for breakfast, under the management of W. H. Dildine. The building has uot yet been fully teno vated and fitted up as Mr. Dildine ex pects to have it, but already shows that much labor and money has been spent in freshening it up. When the improvements now under way are com pleted it will shine like new. Within another week these improvements will be about completed. The music for the house will arrive in a couple of weeks from Sioux City. Mr. Dildine proposes to conduct the bath houses in a very systematic man ner and has already engaged Prof. Ruhnow, an experienced masseur recently of Hot Springs, Ark., to look after the proper care of bathers at thb Minnekahta bath house.

It is gratifying to Hot Springs to have the Evans again open for busi ness. Th Xumber "Three" In the Bible, When the world-was created, we find It and its surroundings composed of three elements—air, water and land— the whole lighted by the sun, moon and stars. Adam had three sons men tioned by name, and so did Noah, the patriarch. Daniel was thrown into a den with three lions for the crime of praying three times. Shadracli, Me sliach and Abednego were rescued from the fiery furnace. Job had three spe cial friends. There were tlirfee patri archs—Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Samuel was called three times Elijah prostrated himself three times on the dead body of the child Samson de ceived Delilah three times before she discovered the secret of his great pow er, and the Ten Commandments were delivered on the third day. Jonah was three days and nights in the whale's belly. "Simon, lovest thou me?" was repeated three times. Paul makes mention of the three graces faith, hope and charity. The famous allegorical dreams of the baker and butler were to come to pass in three days. Then we have the holy trinity Father, Son and Holy Gho^t the sacred letters on the cross were twree in num ber, they being I. H. S. so also the fa mous Roman motto was composed of three words—viz. In hoc signo. Sleight of Hand Poisoning. A very curious item in toxicological lore I chanced to Ught upon, wrote George Augustus Sala in one of his let ters, may be called the feat of poison ing by sleight of hand. You were jeal ous of a lady, and you wished to kill her. Well, you asked her to lunch, and you caused a very nice peach to be served at dessert. You cut the fruit with a golden knife, one side of the blade of which was endued with a deadly poison. You presented the poi soned half of the peach to the lady, who ate It with much relish and then dropped down dead. The wholesome half you ate your self and laughed In your sleeve and •went on slicing more peaches for the ladies of whom you were jealous till you were found out and broken on the wheel. Aye, there's the rub! What high old times we might have, to be sure, but for that plaguy contingency of being found out! For Sale. Find black driving team five and seven years old.

He says it comes from an ulcerated tooth, but some of the sports intimate that the Major met John L. Sullivan or some other scrapper. It has been determined by the man agers of the Home to not receive visit ors on Sunday this summer. This is in line with the methods at other Homes and seems to be the proper way to do. The Sabbath is a day set apart for rest and meditation. John T. Smith, of Hill City, oame last week as announced, stayed three days and then asked for a furlough to go home to make garden. Some of the Hill City boys say the garden business is only an excuse. John is 82 and at the mature age of 77 took unto himself a wife and that the honeymoon is not over with the boy.

Peter Schang left last week for a three month's stay at Mitchell. Peter has a lawsuit pending over the title to a valuable quarter section of land near Mitchell. He declares a couple of brothers-in-law are trying to steal the land and very naturally he objects to that sort of proceeding. If the court shall sestle the title in favor of Peter he will not come back, for he will be the possessor of at least five thousand dollars. Chris Schaeffer came down from Belle Fourche and entered the Home. Chris has^lived alone so long and ate his own cooking he is pretty well done for. He has been in the Hills since: 1877 and kept bachelors hall all these years. He was a member of the 7th Iowa Inft., one of the fighting regi men ts, beginning at Belmound under Grant and ending at Appomattox under tne same great chieftan. Who has abetter right to a soft seat in the Home than Chris? Dwight L. Hiscox, better known as "Big Charley," got coltish, asked for a ninety day furlough and contracted to hold scraper for the contractor who is excavating at the power house down town. He rolled up his sleeves and went at the job with all the vim of a boy. But in the progress of the work the scraper "bucked" and Charley per formed some gymnastic movements not in the program. He doubled np into a bow knot, stood on his heat) rooted up the ground and carooned on a big rook result, a lame back, lame side, short breathing and a sort of a wild eyed, far away look.
