Davis Will Contestants Claim the Writer
oT the Instrument Is Known.
Buttje, Mont., May 20. The Davis
will .contest set for today had hardly
opened when Warren Toole, counsel for
contestants, filed two motions, one for a
continuance, the other for a suppression
ol certain affidavits taken in Iowa. In
support of the first an affidavit of Henry
A. Root is filed setting forth the recent
discovery of the identity of the hand
writing in which the alleged will is writ
ten, with that of J. R. Eddy, a grandson
of James Davis, one of the witnesses to
the will. The. similarity extends to the
phraseology and spelling of the will, as
proved by photographic copies of tbe
letters. This discovery was only made
last Monday, and delay is now import
ant to enable tbe contestants to secure
Eddy was a resident of Davis county,
la., in 1880 to 1883, and did business and
earned ' on correspondence for JameB
Davis. He signed James. Davis name to
letters sent to various people. It is al
leged the will was not made by the late
Judge Davis, but was written subsequent
to the; death of James Davis and Job
Dai'is, and that the will and signatures
are tiie work of Eddy. Time is neces
sary to complete the chain of evidence
now discovered. This was not opposed
by the proponment of the will and the
case was continued until June 22. The
great array of counsel here now will
leave at once. Colonel R. G. Ingersoll
is among .the counsel for the contestants
and came here with his wife and

Mr. Wilson reports that acts of violence
are oi lrequent occurrence. Three men
were killed within a few miles of each

though he did not learn their names.
One was an innocent workman in Colter

that of a carpenter shot in Columbia

A Window Decoration.
What is more beautiful for a low screen
around the kitchen windows than sweet
peas. If the kitchen is on the sunny
side of the house they will luxuriate with
no other fertilizer than the soap suds of
the weekly washing. The seed should
be planted very early in the season, in a
rich, sunny place, as deep as six or eight
inches. Some floriculturists plant them
in the fall, putting them down the depth
of ten inches and covering the ground
with rich fertilizer. They must be given
something for support as soon as they
are out of the ground. Bushes may ho
used for this purpose, but a wire guuzo
of large mesh, painted a medium shade -of
green, is prettier than anything; else.
The new varieties of sweet peas are con
siderably larger than tho old varieties,
and will cover a trellis from four to six
feet in height. A mixture of black-purple
sweet peas with the old fashioned.

Best Time to Tiine a Piano.
Most people let their pianos go until
the ear cannot tolerate them, but a piano
requires constant attention, and where
the changes of the season are marked
ought to be tuned at least four times a
year. Where the tuning is occasional
and not regular, either the spring after
the fires are extinguished, or the early
winter, after they are well under way, is
the best time for tuning, for then the)
piano is least subject to climatic changes.
Interview in Seattle Telegraph.
The recent death of tho "poet" Close,
in England, recalls the curious circum
stances under which he received a pen
sion. Ee was recommended for a pen-
sion by Lord Palmers ton in a fit 6f good
nature, at the instance of a friend of
Mr. Close. The alleged poet was a mere
writer of doggerel, and after much dis
cussion the pension order was revoked.
Lord Palmerston considered bis blander
an excellent joke.
