jL~~l western character, -managed to
secure a fancy drink iu the early
days of Helena, is told by a former resident of that city It serves'to show
that the age of '''promotion" is not as
young as is pictured by later date
savants,   ...
It waa in the early '70's, when Helena
was one of the banner placer mining
camps of the west, and gold was being
^yashed by hundreds of men from the
sands of Last Chance gulch (now Main
street). Wardner wanted a fancy drink
and did not care to remunerate the bartender with a fancy price in lieu, so he
evolved a plan which worked to perfection.
Entering a saloon, Jim said:
"G . I'll tell you what's let's do.
If you will furnish the sherry, I'll furnish tho freeh egtrs, and we'll mix up a
drink that is out of sight."
As oggs were worth $2 a dozen, the
liquor man decided that it was a good
bargain,.although wine was also sold at
a stiff figure in those days. Then Jim
went to a'grocery near by, and said to
the proprietor '
"W , if you will furnieh the eggs
111 furnish the sherry and we will have
something worth while in the line of
fancy drinks "
The grocer agreed to furnish tho ee<r'S
arid a few minutes later both entered
: the liquor house    The concoction was
duly prepared and the three began to
absorb it.
As Jim swallowed liis share, an ilea
struck the bartender.
"Say," demanded he, turning upon
Jim, "where do you come in on this
game, anyway?   W  has furnished
tho eggs and 1 have supplied tho liquor.
How do vou get in?"
"Oh," said Jim. "I'm the promoter."
Of cour.°e, the other two had nothing
more to say.

OW is it that some persons
want much sleep, some can
do on little, while there are
still others who can get along without
any sleep at all ?" asked a writer iu the
New Orleans Times-Democrat. "Now
ht'.ro is a problem, a solution of which
might prove a vast benefit to humankind I am reminded of the importance
of the subject by a case to which my
attention was recently called in New
Jersey. Albert Herpin o( Trenton, born
in Franco, a hostler, declares that he
has .not slept a wink for ten years, and
his statement, according to the New
York Herald's correspondent, ia borne
out by the physicians who have at dif
feient times treated him for insomnia.
''Of his case Herpin says: 'I have
been to hospitals, where they attempted
to drug me in order to produce sleep,
but I would not undergo that sort of
treatment I have given up the idea of
sleeping for the rest of mylife; in fnet
I'm so used to it that I think no more
about the matter. I've heard of people
going insine that w^re troubled with
insomnia, but I never will. 1 nm well

abso'tuely necessary to healthful exis-
' ctenco?   ta it possible for men to live to
the reasonable and average age without
sleep? These are large questions and
thoy ramify in many, ways when one
begins to deal with them speculatively
In the first place much will depend upon
thc type and temperament of the man.
Persons whose mental capabilities are
of a low order, whose receptive powers
are limited, and who are without the
afflatus which gives a rich poetic color
to the things of life—persons who are
sluggish mentally and temperamentally
and who feel only when pricked and
prodded by the sharp exigencies of the
struggle for existence, the 'dumb,
driven cattle' of the world, must needs
sleep much, whereas the men and women of a sensitive mold, whose minds
are as fragile and responsive as the
most delicate of photographers' plates
who catch and hold, and love the images
as they flit in variant shadings—the
men aiid women who mentally trace
the very finest of the nuances and absorb much of the forces which play upon
them—such as these may do on less
sleep than persons of the dull, unres
ponsive and unooetic type. Napoleon
required but Jittle sleep; but, as a great
American who^as once reminded of the
fact remarked, all men are not Napo-

ward released and sent back to her
home in Virginia. It is'a fact-, however;
that several temale spies were shot
during the civil war.
. Captain Turner Ashby was an example of a Confederate commissioned officer who left his command to do volun
teer duty aa a spy. He went into t,the
camp of .General .Patterson at Cham-
bersburg disguised'as a farmer and riding a plow horse Once iu-ide the enemy's lines he impersonated a travelling
horse doctor, saddlebags filled with
remedies for various equine complaints.
He was successful in his, attempt, returning at night.to the Confederate
camp with an immense amount of valuable information
'.Vhep ihe war be^an Pauline Cush-
man, a beautiful and well known actress,
was playing in Nashville. She was
suspected of being a Confederate spy
and was arrested She protested vigorously, and to test her she was asked to
enter the secret service of the Union.
She consented and was at once employed
to carry letters' between Union commanders. Miss Cushman was given
many hazardous commissions by General Rosecrans, who found her both loyal
and efficient She was finally captured,
placed on a horee in charge of two scouts
and taken to Forrester's quarters.
Here she feigned sickness and was left
at a house to recover, with a squad of
men outside to keep watch of her She
bribed an old negro on tho premises to
run up ancl down yelling, "The Yankees
are coining!" The ruse was successful,
and during the excitement she escaped
to the Union lines.
One of the most daring of Union spies
was James J Anderson, who waa employed by General Buell. His most
reckless act was the capture of the
locomotive called General, which was
exhibited at tho Chicago fair. The
locomotive was seized at Marietta, Ga.,
within the enemy's lines. It was run by
Anderson almost to Chattanooga, although pursued by a fast train loaded
with soldiers, through hostile territory,
almost the entire distance. He was
overtaken a few miles from his destination and, being in citizen's clothes, was
hanged aB a Bpy —Arthur Rock wood in
the Winnipeg Tribune. ;

Properly speaking, a spy is an Individual commissioned to obtain information regarding au enemy in any way by
which It can bo accomplished. This

him to defer thn discovery until a more

refrain from doing a thing because It Is

for success. It Is a humiliating position

these it is now necessary to poison them

accomplished by the following method:
Take a pail of water to which add 2
lbs. of sugar, with this damp 50 lbs of
bran and add toit 1 lb. <*f Paris Green,
thoroiigly mixing it. Piles of this limy
vegetable beds, each pile being covered
by a shingle or board laid flat on the top
of the piles caterpiilers will be found to
frequent these piles and be poisoned.
Where chickens are kept great care
should bo'taken tpplaco only Hinall piles
with large covering . to prevent tin-
chickens reaching the poisoned bran If
this treatment Is promptly carried out,
there Is no reason to anticipate the disastrous results which wore in evidence
in 1900, when swarms of this destructive
cutworm swarmed all over the province.
But prompt action will be tho only piiv
ing of many of our beautiful gardens.
Tho supply of poisoned bran should bo
renewed at least every week. In the
case of rows of cabbage and like plants
the bran may be advautageously covered with largo cabbage leafs to secure
it from drying; up by the sun and tonffortl
