THEY WHIPPED A SLANDERER.
Six Helena Young Women Apply a Dose
of Rawhide Oil.
Helena, Mont., April'16. Six comely
young women, two of them armed with
stout rawhides and all of them ablaze
with righteous indignation, walked into
Billy Hartwigs barber shop, under the
Montana National bank, at 9 o'clock to
night. Their names are Georgie De
Lanev, Bessie Stantler, Lou Bohv, Mary
Barkley, Annie Devilt and Frankie
Pearson. Advancing to the chair at
which Matthew Ran worked, the leader.
Miss Georgie DeLaney, exclaimed, "You
have been slandering me long enough."
Instantly her strong right arm wei Ided
her cutting rawhide, and Rau beat a
Erecipitate retreat to a corner pursued
y the enraged ladies. A second lady,
Miss Bohy, added to the chastisement
by her rawhide, while the other four
formed a half circle to prevent a rush
for the door. Blows beat hard and fast
upon the head and body of the discom
fitted shaver, and his appeals for a truce
that he might explain things were not
heeded. At last, arm-sore and exhausted
the whips were allowed to rest, and with
an injunction to talk no more slander,
the young women withdrew amid the
cheers of the other workmen and patrons
who were in the shop. Rau came to
Helena a few months Bince from Minne
apolis. Miss Delaney had accepted his
escort on one or two "occasions, but last
week refused to go to a dancing party
with him, and accompanied another
gentleman. In revenge he went to the
manager of the party and told him that
she was not a proper person to be in
that company, and on other occasions is
said to have aspersed her character.
The six women are all waiters at the
Delmonico restaurant, and are of good
repute, being honest working girls. Rau
at present is quite out - of sight. The
young women are the heroines of the

ABOUT PROMINENT ACTRESSES.
A Servant - Charges Maggie Mitchell
. With Abandoning Her While Sick.
Chicago, April 15. Miss Mary
Kramps, of Philadelphia, applied to the
mayor today for assistance to reach her
home. She says that in February she
was employed by Maggie Mitchell, the
actress, as a tutor in German and to care
tor Her enects. Miss Mitchell made very
severe terms, was very exacting, and
when Miss Krampa was finally unable
to stand tne strain and Droke down witn
nervous prostration" at Burlington, la.,
Miss Mitchell abandoned her without
money. Through the kindness of some
railroad men she was enabled to come
to Chicago, and wanted to get to Phila
delphia. The mayor referred her to the
- The Northern Pacific Stocks.
New York, April 15. A broker in
Northern Pacific stocks is quoted as say
"There never was a time when North
ern Pacific matters were so free from
mystery as now. This very fact makes
everybody anxious to know what is put
ting "down the stocks. There never was
a time when Northern Pacific stocks
were so scattered as today, consequently
it is harder to trace the selling than ever
before. It is true Germany has been
selling these stocks, and the public here
has been selling them, but there is . no
apparent attack on them, nor any re
sistance offered by inside people to the
decline. They move naturally, and this
is all the-better forthem. There is ab
solutely no truth in the reports that
there is friction between Villard and
his friends on the side."

THE RESULT A SURPRISE.
The result of the poll at Geestemunde

NEWSPAPER WORK IN ENGLAND.
Active Reporters "in the Small Places
Make Pretty Fair Wages.
The most important perquisite for re
porters is that known as "lineage. "
Daily newspapers, for example, have
recognized correspondents in nearly ev
ery town of any importance throughout
tire country. A reporter living in one of
these places, and connected witha local
newspaper, may be appointed corres
pondent for a dozen or even more jour
nals.. All events of importance have, of
course, to be attended for his own paper,
and should anything occur of sufficient
interest to justify notice in the papers
he represents, he writes a report and for
wards it by telegraph or by train.
rrom each paper be receives the cost
of the telegram and is paid for his re
port at so much per line, varying in dif
ferent towns between one penny and
twopence per line. Some of the London
papers pay as much as threepence per
KllA A.nri in thA fAiU fit mUiru fit nn
usual importance or value the leading
provincial newspapers will sometimes
pay a like amount. By this means it is
no unusual thing for a smart man to
make as much as five pounds in a single
In a good district a reporter looks for
ward to doubling his weekly income by
"lineage" alone. Even when not the rec
ognized correspondent of any paper, he
makes a considerable addition to his
earnings by "lineage." Take, for ex
ample, an interesting event coming to
the knowledge of the reporter some
morning. He writes out a telegraphic
message and wires a paragraph to the
principal evening papers. A special re
duced charge is made for press messages.
Up to 6 o'clock in the evening seventy
five words can be sent over the wires for
one .shilling, and one hundred words
after 6 o'clock for the same amount.
Every repetition of the message costs
From each paper which inserts his
paragraph the enterprising scribe re
ceives half a crown or three shillings
and sixpence, usually the latter sum.
So, taking it that he sends his news to
twelve newspapers, the cost of the tele
grams would be three shillings and ten
pence, and if the report were used by
nine out of the twelve papers he would
receive (taking as a moderate estimate
that he would be paid half a crown by
each) 1 2a. 6d. Deducting the cost of
the telegrams it will ..be seen that he
clears nearly a sovereign by the trans
action. The risk is small, for any spicy
item of news told in an interesting way
is always welcome, to the evening pa
pers especially. If only two papers were
to insert and pay for his report he would
stall be a gainer.
: In the large cities and towns there are
men known as "penny-a-liners," uncon
nected with any particular newspaper,
who make a decent income by keeping a
watchful eye for items of news which
may escape the observation of the ordi
nary reporter. Any terrible calamity in
a district is a golden harvest to the
scribes. A railway accident, colliery
explosion or startling murder means
pounds, shillings and pence to the re
porter. Another source of profit to the
"Knights of the Pencil" is shorthand
writing in the local law courts. In many
towns the reporters are the only compe
tent shorthand writers, and to their lot
tall the shorthand notes which from time
to time are required by solicitors and
other people. London Tit-Bits.
