She gistal grgus. FELL & VBOOMAN. Publishers. MAIDEN, - - - MONTANA. In former years many Northwestern ers have fled to Florida for winter recreation, but this season the tenden ey is towards New Orleans, where there are batter accommodations and a vast deal more to engage the attention of tourists. Now Orleans in winter is as gay as Paris, and invalids find abundant sources of amusements not to be found at other southern resorts. Beecher was charged in a newspaper with visiting Mrs. Langtrys's perform ance, but he pleads an alibi, that he was in Boston at the time stated, and suggests that he has a double who makes him trouble, and wants some one to "catch him, examine him in the ology apd make him preach, and so de tect the rascal." Beecher does not go so far as to intimate that his "double" got him into "his great sorrow," as he ealls it-the Tilton scandal. A physician writes: "Water, to pro dhce its medicinal effects, should be taken hot, not simply warm. It should be from 1...

FORTY YEAlS AGO. Things that People Did Then They Do Not Do Now. Mulford in San Francisoo Chronicle. Family cooking was better then than at the present. Our mothers and grand mothers "took a hand" in it. Bread was made at home. Coffee was freshly ground every morning for breadfast. The grind ing of the family coffee-mill was a famil iar sound of the early morning, long ere the children woke up. Foreign help had less away in the kitchen than now, and European bands did not make a botch of such purely American dishes as pumpkin pie, codfish cakes, pork and beans, corn bread, buckwheat cakes and succotash, People then did not live as long, nor was the average health as good as it is to-day; they ate more meat, more grease, more hot bread, more heavy dishes, drank more at meals and afterward chewed more tobacco. Dyspeptics and consumptives were more common; disease and premature death were devoutly laid at the Deity's door and alluded to as "dispensations of Providence." Tombstones had ...

Dying Persons' Unconsciousness. "A dying man may be burned with a red-hot iron and r.ot feel pain," Dr. Crawford said to a reporter of the Mail, 3f Stockton, Cal. "Consciousness may remain to the dying almost to the diaso l tion, but generally they lose the pow. ,r of thought long before actual death. In cases of death in which there seems to be suffering the writhing and spasms ire due to reflex muscular action. Fear weakens the nervous system, and, con ,gnently, hastens death; and the re teree of fear may prolong life." The doctor cited a medical report concerning a Methodist minister. e lay on the verge of death, cold and pulseless, and friends around his bed sang his favorite hymn. As they ceased, and while the physicians stood timeing the death the minister's hands moved, and he whla pored, 'tGloryi" Restoratives were ad ministered, and an hour later the man bad recovered. He lived many years after that. He said he understood every word spoken at his bedside. Under the nervous ...

MONTANA NEWS. Northwestern railroads are making preparations to build into the Montana mines as soon as sprirg opens. A letter from the Cceur d'Alenes, in the Livingston Enterprise, gives that region a bad send-off. The congressional committee on territories reported adversely the bill for the election of territorial governors and secretaries by the people of the territories. PhiiL Brady arrived in Billings last Friday. He says that in Iowa and Minnesota large purchases of yearling cattle are being made with the inten tion of shipping them to the Yellow stone country 'next spring, and that there is every indication of more being brought in this year than last.-B.ilings Post. Acts of this kind will soon loosen up the money market : It is reported that Judge A. J. Davis recently tras ferred from New York to Helena the sum of $300,000 for investment. This handsome amount of currency and coin is understood to be put into circu lation in the shape of loans, if there are borrowers enough ...

Jules Lefebvre is to paint a larg:, work "for an American millionaire," the sub ject to be Lady Godiva. The moment chosen is that in which the countess, surrounded by her maidens, is mount ing her horse to set forth on her cel ebrated ride. One of her attendents is withdrawing from her shoulders a vel vet-lined mantle, against whose rich texture the nude and lovely form stands out in full relief. The face of Godiva, "full of chaste heroism and noble re solvet" is said to be exquisite, though the picture is as yet a sketch. Mrs. Mary Beach, of Bridgeport, Conn. who was ninety-one years of age on the I 24th of the present month, and whose I father was a Revolutionary soldier, has presented the local grand army post with a bedquilt made by herself for ex- t hibition at the coming fair.

WOr~M, S PIATIfOTISM. A Brave Revolutionary Deed Bravely Emulated-How a Lady Earned Her Title to Her Country's Gratitude. Philadelphia Enquirer. One of the first acts of the covern went during the approaching session of conflo ssho(uld be to make for the wid ow of the late Elias Reed, formerly of the Tweltth Pennsylvania Cavalry, a provision worthy of the lady's claims upon her country and the dignity of the Republic. While the country exists the story of Lydia Darrah makin: her way out of town to the Continental outposts to warn the army of an intended attack will be remembered, and though it per haps involved more personal hardship, it was certainly no finer, and in its re sults of far less importance than the he roic sacrifice of feeline which this lady patriot offered on the iltar of her coun try. Philadelphia has had the honor in this generation of being the home of two persons who were deeply con cerned with momentuous issues at a time when the fate of the Republic trembled in...

ADETEOTIVE'S EXPERIENOE. HBl Successful Undertaking and Es cape From an Impending Fate. (Buffalo, N. Y., News.) One morning several years ago, just as the dull gray light was beginng to show itself in the east, a small band of men might have been seen employed abouta house on Ferry street, in Buffalo. There was nothing special either in the dress or appearance of the men to indi cate their intention, but it was plain that they bad business of importance on hand. Suddenly a man appeared at one of the windows, took in the situation at aslance, and, swinging himself outward with wonderul quickness, scaled the roof of the house. This man was Tom Ballard, the notorious counterfeiter; and, armed to the teeth and fully real izing his situation, he defied justice and the officials below him. Some of the of ficers, knowing the desperate character of the man, proposed to shoot him until he was killed, but one of the number promptly protested, and declared that if his brother officers would as...
