A New Damon and Pythtas.

mantic story of a lifelong devotion,
begun in early boyhood, between two
men, and only ending in death at tho
rlpo age of 80 years. Henry Prlco
and Robert Ellis when boys struck up
a friendship, pledging to stick to each
other until death. When young men
tbey emigrated, to Australia and lived
and worked together, como weal,
como woo, for more than fifty years.
Two years ago they both returned
to tholr nativo village of Rhosllaner
chrogog, In Wales, having amassed
considerable wealth. This week
Price and Ellis died within twenty
four hours of each other, both being
over 80 years of age.
f Mount Booker Washington.
Mrs. Hill, an artist of Tacoma,
Wash., has been commissioned by one
of tho Western railroad trunk lines
to execute for tho Louisiana Purchnso
exposition several canvases ilustra
tlve of tho scenery of Washington
state. One of the pictures represents
a lofty mountain, which for some rea
son had never received a name. Tho
artist suggested that the mountain be
christened Mount Booker Washington,
Jn honor of the principal of the Tusk
egeo institute. Her suggestion was
confirmed by tho United States geo
logical survey, and the name, Mount
Booker Washington, is now in use.
Tho picture will bo exhibited at St.
