A murder, evidently committed in  cold blood with robbery the only apparent motive, was enacted within six  miles of Moyie City and not more than  iive or six days ago.  Tuesday the body   of   a   man   was-  found lying  within  20  yards   of, the  tote road about four miles west of this  place by'David   Newlan.    He notified  W". G. Bateman, the , milk man;  who  j in (urn appraised (he mounted  police  stationed here of (he fact.    They (hen  notified Coroner, Watt- of the ghastly  discovery.    Dr. Watt ,not being  able  to act, Bnxhe of Cranbrook was summoned and held an inquest.the follow-'  ing day. ' -  Tlie' body   presented   a   gruesome  spectacle, the head and face being decomposed beyond recognition from being exposed to the hot sun,  but  the  body was in a fair state  of  preservation,  being protected,, and   went - to  show that the man had not been 'dead  more than   three or  four '"days'!    The  skull was pounded, almost, to  a  jelly.-  and several large blood   stained' rocks  were found close by which were likely-  used for   that   purpose.    The  victim  had   undoubtedly  received   the- fatal  blow while,on the road, and   was  subsequently  dragged  down   the  hill   to  where he was found.    HtfAvas buried  on the  spot  after   the  post   mortem.  Tho murderer, used   very  poor judgment in covering up' his crime, for  if  he   had  dragged   the   body   50-   feet  farther, to where there is a deep ravine,  it might never have  been   discovered.  The  man   was  evidently about  -10  years of  age,   slim   built,  and  stood  about   iive   feet ' three   'inches.    His  pockets   contained   a    memorandum  book, in which was some English and  Italian writing, some   tobacco and  a  knife.    He was clad in a pair of overalls, calico shirt and a  pair  of heavy  shoes.    A short distance  from  where  the body lay a fur trimmed cap and a  pocket cut   from   a pair of   overalls  wero  picked up.    Nothing  could   be  found by which to-identify  him,  but  judging from the characters found  in  the book it is thought he is of   Italian  extraction.   .  ' G. li. Williamson, bookkeeper at  Armstrong's camp six miles west of  here, was iu-.town yesterday. He is  positive the murdered man worked at  his camp since August 3rd. His  name is Guiscppc Puerio, -- and his  partner's name is Antonio Bruno,  both Italians. He recognizes his own  handwriting in tho book found on the  body and also by the shoes, which he  claims ho sold the man. li. A. Eraser,  a C.

Miss Holmes' special bent for original

Speaking of lsrr love for tho natural science:;, sho says: "When I was 5 years old,,

Her interest in  homeland foreign missions has been   quito.-.as intense as her interest' in scienco.    At no time sinco she
was quite a  young girl  has she boon anything less than president of some missionary band.    During, tho past 1 i  years she
has  been  president  of  tbe   Presbyterian

lory and for  the last ten   years also chairman of the cy nodical,cominittoc and secretary of. frecdmen   for  the   Illinois synod.

of the colored people in the south, and her
'heart has been .enlisted'in'a way thoroughly  characteristic  o£   her  aggrcssiye   and

\"ery in.i.giaatiM; childnn, on tho othor
hand, will tircuu.sianruilly narrate incidents which they deeh-.ro they have seen
or as having happened to thcmselvis, and
it is nut easy to make them grasp.tho fact
that tins is a falsehood. The best way is
to take it for granted that it is a iiotion
anil say: "Yes, dear, that is a nice littlo
story you havo mado up. Now, shall mother read one, or can you make her up another?" In this way tho child realizes that

Always avoid a:ousing tho violence of a
vcally pasisionato child. Remember that
fiino times out of ten it is tlio disposition
df you-, your husband or some relative that
has descended upon the, little one, who is
really.niore to be. pitied'than blamed. After a certain ago ono can reason with a
child in its quiet moments and explain tho
danger and pain of these headstrong put-,
hursts, and assCt it to learn tho hard lesson of self control, but a tiny mite is too
young for this, and, if • possible, without
giving way weakly by a little tact and
diverting the child's mind the,exhausting
, torrent of.passion should bo averted.,
[ When very juvenile youngsters
.their breath in that alarming fashion in
tho middle of a cry, tho quickest way to
bring them around is to rub a wot sponge
or f'.annil on the face. Tho unexpected (

At tbe same time thin holding of tho
breath is hardly ever .attended with dan-'
Kor, though it appears most appalling to
nny one unaccustomed to children.
! The great secret of management lies,
bowcxe-r, after all, in discipline. Havo ns
few rtiles and regulations ns you possibly
can, but havo those kept .to tho letter.
Don't excuse any deviation therefrom, but
, insist with quiet firmness on their fulfill-

"Tho average person may tako for .breakfast a subacid fruit, such as r\ raw, baked,
i steamed or stewed   apple, a ripo  peach, a
j bunch  of   grapes "or   n   very  soft pear,",
! writes  Mrs. S. T. Horer  on "What  Indi-
1 gestion  Really., Means,"   In  Tho  Ladies'
I Home Journal.    "This may bo  followed
I by a bowl of well cooked cereal with a lit-
j tlo  milk, a s-.licc of  whole wheat   bread,
and, if ho hr.s boon accustomed to it, a cup
: of clear coffro, ono-half heated milk.    No
j other food  is  actually necessary—in fact,
| ono might be better off with even a lighter
j meal.    Tho heavy breakfast, quickly and
carelessly   eaten   by   the  average-  family,

| consist of v.cream soup, two,or three slices
| of whole wheat bread and butter, any lit-
! tlo light   minced   meat, and   again   fruit.
i This meal may be  closed with a rice pudding, a cup custard or somo simple desi.ert
. mado principally irom eggs and milk, rico
j and milk, or whipped   cream.    The night
meal, after t'n'o clay's work is over, should
I for its' first  course  have a perfectly clear
! soup, either plain consomme or a bouillon
mailc entirely from vegetable matter, or n.
clear, light tomato soup.  ; Tho  idea is to
warm and stimulate tho stomach without
giving  nourishment!    Follow this,with a
red meat, either beef  qr mutton, broiled,
roasted or boiled; one  starchy vegetable,
as rice, macaroni, potato, or in tho  winter
boiled chestnuts; ono  green vegetable,'as-
tirrefully    cooked    cabbage,   .cauliflower,
spinach, asparagus, green  peas or   beans,
stowed cucumbers or squash, according to
tho season of the year;  then  a   light din-'
nor salad   ejemposed  cf  cither celery, lettuce   cress,  endivo   or  chicory,   or  oven
shredded raw cabbage dressed with a littlo
oil and a few drops of lemon juice, with a

somo very light  dessert  similar  to  theco

A sudden thought seemed to enter hor  heed at that moment, and with a' merry  twinklo in her eye and mischief lurking  in tho dimple in her chocks she hurriedly  entered tlio houso again, and ascended to  her'r'ooin, from which she camo forth" half  an hour later looking a different Roso altogether.

"Good morning," ausworcd Harold  Rodney, allowing his ores to wander from  hor head to her heels with widest astonishment and pninAilnglod, "It is rather  warm," he continued as lie throw his cigar  into the hedgo and proceeded to seat himself upon a fallen tree, locking the picture  of a healthy, handsome English gentleman.  .  "Ycu aro out early, aro you not?" she  nsked, seating herself bosido him and  thrusting into sight a hoot with half tho  buttons undone.  An' amused sinilo rested on his f.ico, but  ho did not lot her seo it, nnd, indeed,;it  was hard not to laugh, for Roso had on an  old gray dress too small for her, n dirty  ribbon tied around her neck, and another  of a different color around her hair.

Ho was sitting at  tlio foot of a tn.o with his gun across his  1 knoo v.he-n hi> hc-.-i-rd a squirrel chattering  in a ,siiiall treo near him. Ilo at once  cocked his gun and prepared to shoot. He  saw tho squirrel run part way down tho  trunk of tho treo and then scramble back  again, and after chattering frantically for  a few seconds repeat tho action. This continued for ��onio timo, and tho hunter bo-  camo so much interested lhat he roso up  slowly and tried to find out what tho trouble was. '"Near tho bottom of the tree ho  saw a huge black snako partially colled.  Its head lay Eat on the ground,'but��it��  tail was thrust up a fow inches in tho air  and w.-is waving slowly back and forth.  Again jtlio squirrel ran down,' this time  nearer to tho ground, nnd then it suddenly stopped chattering and seemed to ba eying tho snake's tail.  Then' it ran around tho treo and pooped  out on tlio other side and looked at the  tail from that direction. .Voiv, a squirrel  is the. most cuiious of nil animals',1 and it ,  couldn't understand why that tail wua  moving so strangely, rind so it crept nearer and nearor, uttering half startled little  cries from time to timo. Tho hunter saw  the snake's eyes gleam, but thero was not  tho slightest motion in tho body, although ,'  tho tail continued to wave.1 At last tho  squirrel reached tho ground. Of a sudden  the snako threw up its head, sprang almost off tho grpund'and before tho squirrel could move soized it in its dreadful  fangs: Tha squirrel's curiosity had proved  Its ruin.

Then it camo suddenly to her with overwhelming forco. Then sho criod and callod  herself naughty names and longed and  longed that sho could live tho past year  over again.  How many of us, I wonder, havo dono  that? But ic was no good.

has been due to the efforts' of its paper,
■ the residents of that town have   made
a sorry mistake in, refusing to come to
its rescue, and this fact will dawn upon
them after they are  without a paper
for a short while.    The town that will
"not support its  home paper is a  good
town to stoer clear of,is a'good maxim
to. follow, and    in   most   cases    will
iprovo to be gospel truth.
-A. Nevada Editor iu Hiding,
' There are many,' newspaper critics
who, when they see a , typographical
error or any other slight' mistake overlooked by the proof reader, nearly go
into hysterics about it, ,but tlie following, which is neither a typographical
or, gremalical,mistake, is worthy the
attention of any one who cares to
learn the troubles -of a printer. It is
clipped from an exchange :
"Tho editor of a paper in Nevada is
in hiding in the hills in hopes  of saving his life, which is threatened to  be
taken as the result ol his getting the
reports of a cattle show and a -concert
mixed up."   ,The spicy  article in question, when in his paper, read.   'The
concert given' .by   sixteen  of Carson
Sink   Lake's   most beautiful    vountr
ladies was highly   appreciated.   .The}'
sang in   a' most   charming  manner,
winning the plaudits of the  audience,
who pronounced them the finest herd
of short-horns in the country.    A few
aro of a rich, brown   color,   but the
majority aro spotted brown and white.
Several of the heifers are  able-bodied,
clean-limbed animals, and  promise lo
be good milkers.'"

Now (that the "king , of would be

send.a few more generals there to help
the good cause along. What is the
matter with General Summary, or General Blacksmith, or General Merchandise, or General Agent, or General Debility?. We presume the ranks are
pretty well filled already with those
generals, but there is one that most
communities could get along without
their presence very nicely, who would
fciot in the least be missed, and they
are General Nuisances. Why not
send them all to the front?—Plains

, The little island of Porto Rico, lying

An effort should be made to have
the principal streets of Moyic cleared
of , the many objectionable stumps
which arc still left standing. As it is
now there are portions of the principal boulevards so full of stumps thai

safe by means of a chart. Now is the
time to do the work, as a delay until

of the surest indications of the value
