TRYING TO PROVE A FORGERY. 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 further evidence. 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 daughter. REIGN OF LAWLESSNESS. Rough Characters Rule In New Towns on the Great Northern Extension. Helena, Mont., May 20. John Wil son, a former resident of Helena, and a gentleman of known int.rwrir.v nrrivrtd from the Flathead country today and reports a reign of lawlessness in that section. Within the last few months 3000 or 4000 people have stampeded to that country in advance of the boom ex pected upon the arrival of the Great .Northern Kailway Western extension Two new towns, Columbia Falls and Kalispell, have suddenly sprung up, and a million dollars' worth of lots sold in them.- Among the motley population is a large contingentof verv tough characters. Mr. Wilson reports that acts of violence are oi lrequent occurrence. Three men were killed within a few miles of each other, on Monday, the day he left, al though he did not learn their names. One was an innocent workman in Colter Brothers lumber camp, a man having fired at one of the proprietors, missing his aim. The second was killed in a stabbing affair on the east fork of the Columbia river, and the third corpse is that of a carpenter shot in Columbia Falls. But one man is under arrest. The nearest telegraph station is Ravalli, distant from the scene of violence 100 miles, and details are meager. Officers ol the law are few in number, and can afford little protection.

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. rose and white "painted lady" looks very pretty on such a trellis. New York Trib une. Andalusian Enthusiuam. If African women are to be transported to Granada to fitly adorn these ancient ruins, the native AndfUunian damsel would' vio with them for the right, for the Anda lusian is a far mora beautiful gem, and worthy of being born in the shadow of tho AHiambra or the Alcazar. Her form is soft and flexible, the quint essence of the word "pliant" applied to her. She crouches in the snialle.it corner she robs the sharpest angle of its sharp ness by sliding stealthily around it; she winds her supple body through the narrow--est crevice. Her senses partake daintily of what may be offered to them. Her nose lingers but a moment .above the fragrant chalice of tbe rose; her lips sip but a single drop from the fiery mulaga and reject tho rest. Her most jiowerful sense, insatiable, yet held in check by her, and holding others Within its wondrous ban, is her lare beautiful eyo. In the midst of the snowy splendor of her face this strange, black flame is the confession of the extremes which unite in her breast. Chicago Globe. 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.
