Audience Last Night.
Butte City (Montana) Daily Miner.
The lest audieuce of the week assembled
last niht to witness Janauschek's matchless
performance of the unfortunato Scottlsch
Queen. There Is a largeness and breadth In
her Impersonations that make one thiuk of the
old Greek days of vast arenas ami heroic mold.
Janauschek has not playmi during the week
with more impressive power. In the inter
view with the Queen, in the early part of the
p'ay, she was grand, but when iu the depths of
her proud despair tho doomed and forsaken
ScoUisch Queen was presented to them the
audience waa thoroughly moved. Few have
had the privilege of witnessing so fine a display
of dramatic power as that which immediately
prec-ded the fall nf the curtain. Xever was
an encore more richly deserved than that
Madam Janauschek was forced to respond to
at the close of the evening. Her costumes
were magnificent and well accorded with the
character. The other member of the company
were fully up to their usual standard of excel
eucc. The Queen Elizabeth of Miss Helen
Rand, was a lino performance for one f her
youth. Miss Nelson ami Miss Hsggor were
admirable in their respective parts. Lord
B lrleigh wis well played by Frank Clements.
George D Chaplin gave an effective represen
tation nf Lord Leicester. A 11 Stuart was a
successful! Sir Edward Mortimer. Oglen

Health of Jews
One noticeable feature about Jowish ceme
teries in tho south is the scarcely of newly
made graves after an epidemic of cholera or
yellow fever. Statistics show that fewer of
them die than any other race from these or
kindred diseases. During the cholera scourge
in Toulon only two orthodox Jews (lied of
it, while in number they equalled fully 20
per cent nf tho population. Their immunity
from di-oase, ami the certainty with which
they recover when attacked by It, is ac
counted for by the simplicity of their diet.
Thoy nro very strict about following tho
dietary laws proscribed by Moses. Isn't it
n liltle Mriiiire that Moses, if he was only a
historian, should have possessed knowledge
superior to that of the wisest and best phy
sicians of the pre tout day? He evidently
believed in preventing disease rather than
curing it. This is what Do Haven's Dys
pepsia Cure aims to do; it acts directly on
the digestive juices of the stomach and both
prevents and cures Indigestion and Dyspep
sia. Free sample bottles at Osburn & Co's

Yesterday afternoon about half-past 2pm a fine
looking, well-dressed gentleman was seen walk
ing ucross the suspension bridge with a cigar in
bis TU'iuth, Binoking quite leisurely. There
was nothing strange iu his manner, and the
many people on the bridge thought of nothing
wrong until they saw him leap from the bridge
over the railing, into the mighty waters
beneath. The penitle on the bridge were awe
struck nml powerless to render him any assist
ance, and with feelings of deep sorrow and
and tears in their eyes they stood silently
watching him as he struggling with the rurh
ing waters, and was carried into the roaring
cataract, they noticed that he wss still puffing
away at one of the famous "Tansill Punch
Cigars, Havana-filled, which he purchased of
Osburn & Belshaw for only 5 cents.
Mr. Jefferson Land Suns. Last Tues
day a most remarkable land slide took place.
It seems that at a point about fifty miles
from Mehama the side of Mt Jefferson
slouched off a vast quautity ot earth into
the main Santiain, and obstructed the river.
The water backed up behind this dam until
the tups of the tallest pine and fir trees
wero hidden beneath the surface of this vast
reservoir. When the water began to flow
over the slide it became as muddy as it could
be. A great many people were picking
blackberries in that region, which are, by
tho way, quite plentiful. But when they
s iw tho Santiain river dry, they began to
think that matters looked a little dangerous
iu tho neighborhood of Mt Jefferson, so
they left. I listory furnishes but few snch
instances, ami the Santiain falls may yet
become as tinted as any of those of
Tkb O. P. Railroad. We understand
that workmen have been employed this

tory arrangements with their creditors has
been accomplished and they will now pro
ceed with tho work.
