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 hour.

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 aid society. - The Northern Pacific Stocks. New York, April 15. A broker in Northern Pacific stocks is quoted as say ing: "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 Professors Chosen.

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 night. 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 twopence. 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. A Mad" Raee.
