CITIZENS 11 WATER White Sulphur Springs People Take the Political Reins in Hand. . THEY ARE ALL FOR THE TOWN Straight and Solid Platform and Speeches That Were . Delivered From the Shoulder Mrs. J. G. Danzan Dead-Notes. Special Correspondence of the Standard. - White Sulphur Springs, March 30. At laat the citizens of .White Sulphur Springs have donned their war paint and promise to make the municipal election on April 6 one not soon to be forgotten. Pursuant to a call published in the local papers a citizens' meeting was (held a the court house on Saturday evening last for the purpose of nominating one candidate for mayor and one alderman for each ward. This body of citizens seem to favor-no step towards the advancement of the town and hold to. the opinion that the town cannot consistently maintain a system of water works. At this meeting only 13 persons were present. J. T. Anderson was made chairman, with J. T. Wood as secretary. W. T. Ford, J. D. Shorey and H. E. Thompson were chosen as Judges of primary, with E. H. Teague and D. Penwell as clerks. Nominations for mayor were then in order and the names of J. O. Hussey and W. T. Ford were presented and balloted On, Mr. Ford winning by a vote of eight as against three for his opponent. No candidates for aldermen -were nominated, and the convention adjourned sine die, after naming their ticket "the citizens' ticket." For lack of enthusiasm this convention is without a rival In the history of the town. ' Not doubting the right of the "conservatives" to the opinion, the "progressive" citizens did not wish to participate in the citizens' convention held at the court house, and accordingly scattered broadcast over ithe city Saturday morning dodgers containing the following: "Progressive Citizens' Primary The Mends of the town of White Sulphur Springs who favor the advancement of the town hereby calj a mass meeting of citizens to be held at the Auditorium at 7:30 to-night for the purpose of nominating a candidate for mayor and one alderman for each ward, Who are in favor of the town issuing bonds and erecting a gravity system of water works, provided it can be done consistently." The result of this call was the gathering together at the appointed hour of one of the most consistent, as well as progressive, set of men that ever attended a primary. They were not men who would engage In anything In a haphazard sort of a way, but who are alive to the fact that something must be done to build up a town here of which none sfhall be ashamed. They do not believe outsiders will come and make their homes among us without we can offer the comforts necessary to the enjoyment of - life, and thinking thusly tihey were ready to do all in . their power to wrest the reins of gov-iprromerit from a few and make them the property of the masses. The meeting was called to order promptly at 7:30 o'clock. W. H. Suth-erlin -was made chairman and G. E. WHtse acted as secretary. After a short outline of the objects of the meeting by the ohalrman, on motion J. C. Tipton, Max Waterman and Powell Black were chosen as Judges of the primary with. James J. O'Marr and Charles Sherman as clerks. Nominations for mayor were In order, but only one name was proposed Dr. D. McH. McKay and after receiving 45 out of 46 votes he was declared the nominee. Dr. McKay was then called upon for a talk, and fh responding he stated that he was rather used to being called professionally but not otherwise, and concluded by declaring himself In accord with the sentiment of tthe meeting so long as they tempered the advancement of the town with consistency. R. N. Sutherliri offered the following resolution, which was unanimously adopted: "Whereas, We believe the time has arrived when heroic effort is required to maintain the commercial posiitlon mf our town and that the exigencies of . the times are such as to demand the earnest cooperation of the people in the furtherance of every enterprise calculated to foster Its best interests, the bending of every nerve towards securing railroad communication and of those thing destined to add to the comforts of our homes; therefore, be it, "Resolved, That the nominees of this convention are pledged to use their earnest endeavor in securing the Montana raildoad, and the thorough inves-ifigation of the plan, and supplying the town with a complete gravity water system, provided the same, on investigation, be found feasible. "Resolved, That they are further pledged to lihe careful and economic investment of the town's moneys in Its advancement, and the beautifying of its streets and public places." The convention was then divided Into wards and proceeded to the nomination of candidates for aldermen. In the First ward A R. Rhone and Conrad Fuchs were placed in nomination. Mr. Rhone receiving 14 votes as against his opponent three, he was de-clered the choice of the voters. In the Second ward A Spencer was nominated and receiving 16 out of; a possible IS votes, was made the nomi nee. I Tn tho Third xraril T? fi XVivht ra. eeived eight votes, James J. O'Marr six; H. Spencer one, and Ml. Wight was given the honor as expressed by the ballots. On motion of R. N. Sutherlin the ticket was named "The Progressive Ticket." Dr. William Parberry was called on for a few remarks and spoke briefly as to his interest in the welfare of the town. He believed a careful estimate should be made as to the cost of water and then submit the same to the voters. He was opposed to water, or in fact, anything else without due consideration. Powell Black then made a few remarks and urged the voters to support the "progressive" ticket, after which the convention adjourned sine die. H. A. Kirchman will leave shortly for the American Fork, where he will be employed for several months guarding the interest of -a large sheep ranch. Attorney Gormley spent several days in Livingston last week, at which place he argued a motion for new trial before Judge Henry in the case of Big Timber National bank vs. J. H. Duffy et al. to set aside a mortgage given by Duffy to one Charles McDonald. Miss Nora Pyle has returned from a visit of several months to' Lewlstown relatives and friends. Master Clifford , Jones celebrated his 12th anniversary as an American youth on Tuesday March 24, not alone, but by having congregated at the home of his parents such a crowd of youngsters as would make a foreigner wish he had never taken out his papers. They played "spin the plate," pussy wants a corner," "clap in and clap out," "weav-erly wheat" and wound up by tripping the light fantastic to the time of music rendered on the guitar by Helmuth Kirchman, who is always to be depended on when music is in demand. Refreshments most tempting were served and the happy throng departed wishing Master Clifford many happy returns of the day. Those present were Little Misses Emma Badger, Clara Chapin, Katie Kumpe, Ina Welsh, Mina Newberry, Argall Anderson, Marjorie Tipton, Masters Richard Badger, Martin Kumpe, Eddie Bryan, Willard Bell and Frank Chapin. White Sulphur Springs is getting to be the rendezvous for "chicken fanciers" as well as poets. There are men here who, won't talk anything but chicken from morning until night, and well they may, for the birds they raise are worthy of much praise. The latest acquisition to the ranks is George Bing, who is breeding white leghorns for pastime. George cuts his own hair (he is the only barber In town and cannot help it) and says he intends to throw in a "broiler" with every hair cut dating from July 4. George raises flowers, too, and if the hens he has are not different from others known to humanity, between the hens, the flowers and George there is liable to be a little hades raised before July 4. George admires and reads the Standard, and also takes an interest in 'race horses, and consequently Is sure to succeed in all that he undertakes. Mr. and Mrs, Powell Black are rejoicing over the arrival of a daughter at their home on March 27. N. B. Smith of the law firm of Smith & Gormley spent the past week in Helena on business before the supreme court. George Mason, better known as "Buckskin," one of the most disagreeable ."colud pusons" that has ever squatted in these parts, has left for new fields in which to ply forth with all the strength of a Sandow and the gab of a prize fighter. George mistreated his wife, whom he had sworn to protect and provide for, but who has been providing for him for several years. Mrs. Mason did not admire his demeanor and, hunting up Justice Hartfield, the gentleman with the blank warrants, she asked him to have her liege lord arrested. The justice, always obliging to the ladies, assented and "Buckskin" was placed in durance vile, so the flies could not get to him, and after getting his head squeezed back to Its normal size, he was told to leave town or take 60 days on bread and water. George likes bread, but hates water, so he told the justice he would vamoose, and accordingly hit the trail for Neihart. Hon. John A. Woodson, who has been spending the winter In Arizona, Is expected to arrive here soon to reside permanently. County Commissioner Danyer and E. J. Anderson have returned from a week's absence in Washington. Rev. D. W. McGregor, the evangelist who has been working wonders in Butte in a religious way for some time past, will be In White Sulphur Springs some time during this month and will endeavor to convince the citizens that fishing on Sunday is not Just the proper thing. Mrs. J. O. Hussey returned on Thursday last from an extended visit with her son, Lewis Penwell, at Helena. K. S. Tipton, the genial gentleman who cries "hello" all over Montana for money, returned Thursday from Helena, where he had a message' to deliver which could not be transmitted over the wire. Death has again visited this town and removed a true and noble wife and mother. Mrs. J. G. Danzer had been in rather poor health for the past few months, caused from a combination of troubles arising from an attack of la grippe. Thursday Mrs Danzer consulted her physician, who informed her that she should be very careful of herself, and at the same time sent word to the husband, who was absent, that a serious culmination was unavoidable. Mrs. Danzer was unable to arise from the bed on Friday, and at 5 o'clock Saturday afternoon the end came. Deceased was an Industrious woman, one of those who had no thought fer self, but was ever on the alert for the welfare of those dependent upon her for protection and the kindness which only a mother can bestow. Mrs. Danzer was in her 41st year and leaves behind to mourn her loss a husband and five children, all yet of tender years, to battle with the world alone and without the guiding hand and voice of a kind, affectionate and. noble mother. The entire community Joins in extending condolence to the bereaved, and can only say let it be a consolation to them that she has passed beyond the dark and turbid stream of death and is at rest with Hira who gave his life that she might live forever in that heavenly home where sickness and sorrow never come. Funeral services were held at the family residence at 3 o'clock Monday -afternoon. A large concourse . of friends followed the remains to their last resting place. , Reduced rates to Austria, Germany, Sweden and all point3 in Europe. Tickets to Chicago, New York, Boston, Philadelphia and all Eastern and Canadian points.

HE WAS A RESPECTED CITIZEN Coming Here In Early Days and Working Faithfully Ho Gained Quite a Fortune and as . Host of Friends. Special Correspondence of the Standard. Bozeman, March 30. Samuel W Lewis, a colored barber and prominent and wealthy citizen of Bozeman, died here last night, he having been suffering from strangulated hernia for two weeks past. A difficult surgical operation was performed Saturday morning and a piece of the intestines being removed, with the hope of saving his life, but he only '.lived one day after this. Mr. Lewis came to Bozeman in 1869 and set up a barber chair in the Northern Pacific hotel, where he waited on table to pay his board, working behind his barker chair between meats, and in this way accumulated enough to open a shop. He had run a barber shop in this city ever since that time, his pleasing manner, his strict attention to business, his painstaking, industrious and saving qualities having made him one of the wealthy and respected business men of this place. He owned numerous fine residences and business houses here, among these being his present home on Bozeman street, this place being one of the finest and most elegantly furnished homes in Bozeman. Mr. Lewis was a great lover of music, one feature of his home, not found In any other In this city, being a music room, where he has gathered together every kind of a musical instrument, and where he and his family spent much of their time. Mr. Lewis married Mrs. Mallssa Bruce, formerly Miss Ma-lissa Raima of St. Joseph, Mo., In 1883, she having five children at that time, and one little boy ihas been born to Mr. and Mrs. Lewis. Two of the step children are now at home, one of the three away, the only daughter, being married. Mr. Lewis also leaves a sister, Miss Edmonia Lewis, a famous sculptress of Paris, France, his sister having had a large exhibition of her statuary at he Centeninal exhibition in Philadelphia in 1876. Mr. Lewis educated his sister, she graduating from Oberlln, Ohio, and later studied in Rome, until the trouble with the Italians In New Orleans a few years ago when her best friends there turned against her owing to the feeling over this little affair in America. Mr. Lewis was born In the West Indies May 19, 1835, his father being a West Indies Frenchman and "his mother part African and partly a descendant of the educated Narragansett Indians of New York state. He lived in Newark, N. J., until 12 years of age, when both his father and mother dying, he traveled as a tight rope walker and bare back rider with a circus for six years. He then opened a barber shop In San Francisco and was a resident of California for 10 years, after which he traveled with a minstrel show as sleight of hand artist, visiting Europe as well as the cities of this country. Mr. Lewis then came West again, settling at Idaho City, where he made considerable money, but lost most of It again through a fire. He had a barber shop In Virginia City In 1866, was in the same business in Helena In 1867 and than at Radersburg and other Montana mining camps until 1869, when he came to Bozeman. He is mentioned at length in the History of Montana, published in 1894. In the early days Mr. Lewis deposited $5,000 In two San Francisco banking houses and both these house failed in one day. He had Intended visited his sister, then in Rome, using this money for the trip, but had to give that up. The houses later paid back that amount and it is invested to-day in a San Francisco savings bank. His will leaves all of his estate, which Includes this money, to his sister and his wife, his wife being made sole executor, without bonds. B. F. Osborn, the Bozeman druggist, who came to Montana in 1876, says: "Sam Lewis was the first man that I spent a dollar with In Bozeman. I came In on the stage, got off and went to his barber shop. I gave him 50 cents for a shave and i for a hair cut." Many an early timer, coming In tired and dirty with the long trip from the East and going out to hunt a shave, remembers, with pleasure, Sam Lewis, as the first man they met In Bozeman. His funeral occurs Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock from ' the family residence. PUT THAT ON. The Generous Man Fe.t Warmer When He ' Gare Away Ilia Overcoat. From the Chicago Tribune. It was a raw, damp October day. The passengers in the north side cable cars were shivering and grumbling at the economy which necessitated the open cars so late in the season. As a Clark street car emerged from the tunnel it was boarded by a laboring man, who swung himself on and sat down directly opposite a prosper-our broker who had entered the car down town. The laborer was thinly clad. His furrowed face and deep-set eyes told of a life of care, If not of actual want The face was intelligent and honest, and a kind heart was reflected In the light eyes. The man who sat opposite to him had the air of one whom the world had treated kindly. Although apparently 50 years old, time had left little Impress on his features beyond turning to silver the thick hair which had once been black. His expression was stern, but integrity shone in every line of his face. Over his handsome tweed suit he wore a light overcoat, closely buttoned across the chest. Occasionally he glanced over the paper he was reading a t his poorer neighbor, and the glances, although short, took In every detail of the man's appearance. When the car reached Schiller street the broker prepared to get off, at the same time removing his overcoat, which he threw over the workingman's knees. "Put that on," he said peremptorily, as he jumped on the pavement. The poor man was so surprised that a second or two elapsed before he grasped the situation. "For me?" he shouted to his benefactor. "Did you give this coat to me?" "Yes, sir," returned the broker, as he hurried towards Dearborn avenue. By this time the car was moving swiftly northward and the laborer was standing up, waving his cap and shouting: "God bless you, sir. God bless you." THE CHOCOLATE TREE. How the Delightful Fool la Prepared From th Mean. From the Philadelphia Times. Linnaeus, the great botanist and naturalist, gave to the chocolate tree the Greek name "theobroma," food for gods. It Is Indigenous to Mexico, and had long been cultivated there before the arrival of the Spaniards. The trees are raised from seeds, and are usually planted In places well sheltered from the wind. The sun's scorching rays are also Injurious to the young trees, and, to shade them, maize, bananas and other broad-leaved plants are sown between them. Two years after planting, the tree attains a height of three feet, and when full grown is usually from 16 to 20 feet In height. The leaves are large, oblong and pointed; and the flowers are of a pale, reddish color, and spring from the branches, the trunk and the roots. When three years old the tree bears its first fruit, but It does not come into full bearing until it is six or seven years old. From that time, until It is at least 20 years old, It continues to yield. The fruit consists of large, oval, pointed pods about five or Blx Inches in length; each pod having five compartments, and these compartments together containing from 20 to 40 beans, neatly done up in a white, pithy substance. When first gathered from the tree, the beans have a very tart taste, and a slight fermentation Is necessary to change them Into a fragrant principle. For this purpose they are placed in pits and covered with a thin layer of sand; they remain In the pits three or four days, care being taken to stir them j about occasionally. When taken out i thev are cleansed, laid out UDon mats. and exposed to the sun's rays until they are thoroughly dry. Before the beans are ready for use, however, they are well roasted, and then finely ground In order to convert them Into a perfectly smooth paste. ST. PAUL'S BIG BELL. Curious Kegu'.atlons Governing It King In It ms tin- Knell of Kovulty. From the Westminster Gazette. The great bell of St. Paul was not tolled for Prince Henry of Battenberg, because he was not in the line of descent from any English sovereign. The honor Is paid only to a member of the royal family who could under any conceivable circumstances succeed to the throne, though It may be doubted whether the bell would toll for a royal Infant not in the direct line of succession. This 'rule does not apply to the consort of the sovereign, of the heir apparent, or of a prince or princess on the stepB of the throne. The booming of the great bell of St. Paul was the first intimation which the citizens of London received of the death of the prince consort, which occurred at 11 o'clock on the night , of Saturday, Dec. 14, 1861. Outside of the royal family the only persons for whom the bell Is tolled are the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Bishop of London, the dean of St. Paul's and the Lord Mayor of London, dying In his year of office. The bell tolled Is not "Great Paul," but the old great bell on which the hours are struck. On the occurrence of a death in the royal family the home secretary at once communicates with the lord mayor, desiring him to convey the news to the dean of St. Paul's, with a request that the great bell may be tolled. The bell is then tolled at Intervals of a minute for an hour. The last occasion was on the death of the Duke of Clarence, on Jan. 14, 1892. The duke died at 9:15 a. m., asd the bell was tolled from 11 to 12 o'clock. At the funeral of Canon Llddon, In September, 1890, "Great Paul," which la much the deeper and more sonorous bell of the two, was made available, as by the rules the old great bell could not be used. ' Bltlnit the Flnrer Nail. It Is Pimply a waste of time to apply ill-smelling and nasty-tasting substances to the fingernails of children for the purpose of breaking up the habit of biting the nails. By some means or other they rub the disagreeable stuff off and go on with the same process of gnawing. A physician recommends a thorough course of manicuring. Let the child's nails be examined a dozen times a day if necessary, and see that there aTe no little points or irregularities to annoy the little one. Everybody knows that a hang nail or a broken bit of nail will create a tendency to scrape the nail or to bite at It Persistent and habitual biting of the nails is proclaimed a nervous disease, and constitutional treatment is in order In connection with the manicuring. It is a good Idea to cultivate in children a good deal of pride in their appearance; this helps the treatment, and will, in a short time, break up the most fixed habits. ; ; Must Win od the First Ual'ot.
