W. W. Tilotson's Burlesque Com
pany of over 40 people will appear hear
on Friday evening at the opera house,
in the "Beautiful Evangeline," which has
undergone so many marked improve
ments this season. As now presented it
is materially different from the crlginal
production. The present company is
made up of such eminent artists as Misses
Annie Boyd, Alice Butler, Messrs. Geo.
K. Fortescue, James L. Moffitt and others.
As a whole the present company is said
to be a much better one than has ever
before been seen in the play here. The
music was composed expressly for "Evan
geline," by Mr. Edward J. Bice, words
by Mr. J. Cheever Goodwin. One of the
most amusing features is that of the
"Dancing Heifer." This unique charac
terization has been the stepping stone to
fame and fortune for many of the most
famous comedians of the present day
notably, Henry S. Dixey, Richard Golden,
etc. During the evening Miss Boyd
sings Fay Templeton's great song, "I like
it, I do," and is usually encored until her
stock of verses are exhaused. The beau

Harrison is received nightly with tumul
Hose Must Co-
Editok Hi;nAi.i: During the past
summer a large majority of the people of
this city have desired and by personal ef
fort and newspaper articles endeavored
to induce til's law-making powers of the
city to ub tte tli it terrible nuisance, ho
annoying to every person of tuste and re
finement, to say nothing of the annoy
ance and damage done to the poor man's
garden, we mean the allowing of stock
running at largo within the , city. The
prcsurc was brought to bear so heavily
that the council were compelled to pasu
an ordinance to restrain stock from run
ning at large within the city limits, hop
ing and believing that it would be en
forced, but the mayor appointed a man
that done his duty faithfully and soon
rid the city of stock. The opponents of
the ordinance not willing to put them
selves on record in favor of repeal, con
cluded to break down the effect of the
ordinance by refusing to support the
pound master, and thereby compelling
him to resign, and no man is willing to
tike the position unless he is sustained
as he should be by the mayor and coun
cil, and to-day the streets are full of
hogs, cattle, and horses.
I would like to see an ordinance passed
and enforced such as was passed and
enforced some years ago when Pot longer
was mayor and Dr. Geo. Black was in
the council, it wa;; called the "Selt Shar
pener" in which the marshal was author
ized to sell hogs to the highest bidder,
the buyer to take them as they run. It
was said that Pottenger and Black got
up the ordinance because they were too
lazy to scratch where the fleas bit them.
Iloweyer that may be, the town was
soon rid of hogs, andj it is a note-worthy
fact that the millions of fleas that went
with them have never returned, but the
h gs have.
It is a shame and a disgrace that a
city having seven or eight thousand in
habitants will permit it to become a hog
yard and slock pasture
Gentlemen of the council, brace- ui;

An Absurd Illrtl.
Kiwi-kiwi is the creature's real name,
but scientific men c;dl it apteryx, which
is a Greek word meaning wingless, be
cause, though a bird, it has no wings. It
not only has no wings, but it has no tail
not even so much as an apology for
one. And, as if that were not enough,
it has no feathers worthy of the name.
Its quills are covered with soft down for
alMiut one-third of their length, and then
are fringed with hairlike webs out to the
ends, which are sharply jointed. It is
only as large ;is a common deanestic fowl,
but it has much stronger and stouter legs
and bigger feet.
When it sleeps in the daytime for
naturally it is odd enough to choose the
wrong time for sleeping it rests its long
bill on the ground, and so makes itseif
look like a strange sort of three legged
stool. Mo:it other birds use their licaks
or their wings or their spurs to fight with,
but it would be foolish to expect any
such natural proceeding from the kiwi;
and, in fact, its plan of fighting is to
kick. It is very fond of earth worms,
and one of its ways of procuring them is
worthy of so odd a bird. It thumps the
earth with its big feet and if there are
any worms in the vicinity, up they come
to discover what is the matter.
It ia a cousin to the ostrich, and though
its plumage has no such value for U3 as
its large relative's has, it is very highly
valued by the natives of New Zealand.
The kiwi hps a very tough skin, which,
when it is projierly dressed, makes a good
leather. St. Nicholas.
A Kig Bar of IiulHon.
The second largest bar of bullion ever
melted in the United States assay office
in Helena was handled the other day by
M.'.lter Meyendorf. It came from the Jay
Gould mine, weighed about 2.500 ounces,
was a little over 500 fine in gold and was
worth about 27,000. The gas furnaces
were not nearly large enough to handle
it, and one of the great coke furnaces,
now seldom used, was heated up. When
it was thoroughly reduced to a liquid,
molten mass, a set of grippers was at
tached to the melting pot, and by the aid
of chains and pulleys it was lifted out of
the bed of burning coke and charcoal
and dumped into a mold. When it had
changed from a liquid into a solid but
red hot bar it was immersed in water
until it had sufficiently cooled to be han
dled. The ojieration, which included
several interesting features other than
those detailed, was intently watched by
a small party of visitors, who were much
interested in seeing $27,000 changed from
a solid to a liquid form and then to a
solid again. The only larger bar ever
handled in the office was one of about
3,300 ounces, but several have been
melted of larger value. Since Jan. 1 the
office has received about. 1,000 deposits,
many more than for the corresponding
lerjod of last year, and of considerably
larger aggregate value. Helena Inde
pendent. Tardy Legislation.
At last the game butchers of the great
west have stopped killing buffalo. The
buffalo are all dead! The time has now
arrived for the territories to enact strin
gent laws against the killing of these an
imals, and I am pleased to see that the
Montana legislature has just rushed
through a bill to that effect only ten
years behind its time! Next year, when
the last buffalo of the eighty head still
alive in the Panhandle of Texas is hunted
down and killed, it will be time for the
Lone Star state to frame a bill for his
protection; but its final passage can
hardly be expected until 1897.
While the territories are passing laws
against the killing of buffalo, they ought
also, by all moans, to make the killing
of mastodons between Aug. 13 and Dec.
1, punishable by a fine or imprisonment.
They should also pass laws against the
shipping of mastodon carcasses out of
their respective territorial limits. The
Vanished Like a Dream.
A writer in The Nineteenth Century
mentions the case of a man who, while
addicted to the morphine habit, fell in
love with a girl. With a view to marry
ing her, he placed himself under medical
treatment for the habit, but found when
restored to health that his love had van
ished so that he did not at all care for the
girl. Whether he relapsed and then
married his dream love in not stated.
