'I'here lire ninny ways of disturb
lug the dignity mill all-prevatlliig
.witcc tlmt Hhould prevail on the
holy Sabbath tiny. The timii who,
, through I"'"0 tcaclihiK ntul evil
' coHUHiiiloiiahip, partaken to freely
oftlic destroying cup, often times,
when under the Influence, maker) a
fool of hlmxelf and become a mil
nance to the nverage citizen, may
linvc Home extenuating cause to
offer for hlft disturbance of (he one
dny that Hhould he kept in peace,
jl ut there i little to lc mid for the
young men of this community,
wIiohc parents have tried to raise
them in a Christian atmosphere,
when they congregate at all hours
of Sunday and fill the air and
offend the ear and senses of the
pious people with their awful din
of inharmonious sounds, accom
panied by the weird cadences of
the piano, in their fearful and dis
jointed rendition of coon songs,
"Goo Goo Eyas" may be all right
in its place, when sung by the
negro, but when turned loose upon
the Sabbath air by a score of young
men who represent some of our
best families, and who have either
imagined or been told that they
could sing, and who have but a
faint conception of music at best,
it is, to say the least a travestry on
music. If some ol the leaders of
this precious baud of would-be
nightingales would attend night
school for n few yearn and take a
thousand or two lessons in articu
lation, harmony and melody, they
might some day, long in the dim
future, aspire to line up with the
rank of artists who command the
magnificent price of 30 cents. Thetsc
few words arc not expected to dis
courage the efforts of the young
men in their chosen trying ordeals,
for the average youngster nowadays
grows a big bump of slf esteem,
and words of pruisc or condem
nation full alike upon the inflated
bump. It would be a blessing in
deed If a few of our young people
would learn at least the rudiments
of singing before they inflict their
inouthiugs upon a long-suffering
and indulgent public.
I)K. l'ATTKUSON AkTIST.
To the many other accomplish'
ments possessed by I)r Patterson,
the presiding genius of the Henson
Drug Company, he has of late dis
played artistic ability of much
merit. Hill Landers, the converter
of populists uud commuuer with
nature, brought from his home on
the cast hillside a punk growth
that flourishes on the bark of the
willow and maple that abound on
his farm and presented it to the
doctor. Now the doctor is never
to be outdone in politeness and
good deeds, and he straightway
transformed the underside of the
punk into n landscape wherein is
presented a sloping beach, an open
expanse of blue water, in the oiling
a lordly ship plowing the crested
waves, the blue sky above dotted
with white winged sea gulls and
birds of brilliant plumage, and last,
thought not least, our William, the
only Bill, is portrayed on the
sandy beach looking- longingly
seaward and meditating on the
voice of the mighty deep. The
doctor in his magnanimity then re
turned the punk to Dill, who now
declares tlmt it shall for all future
time occupy the choicest nook in
the Lawless home.
On Sunday forenoon the marshal
was obliged to arrest a man for
loud yelling and boisterous conduct
on the street. This man had come
to town on Saturday, drank freely
nil day and night and by Sunday
morning he was as crazy as a loon.
After being locked up for a few
hours his normal senses returned
and with them repentance, end the
marshal turned him lose and told
him to go and sin no more.
Running a Crosscut.
J. I, Jones has let a contract for
$1400 to Gover and Tqplan to run
a crosscut of 200 feet on the Win
chester group in Bohemia. The
surface work already done proves
the ledge to be over 100 feet wide,
This crosscut, when completed,
will tap the ore body in the ledge
at a depth of soo feet.
The ourly risers on Tuesday
morning were treated to a drunken
escapade that brought to the mind
of old-timers in border towns the
scenes of many such pranks. A
carpet drummer from San Francis
co came to town the night before
and proceeded to fill his hide with
booze. One of the town boys who
had recently been lot out r.r l.iu
job, was out on a toot and fell in
with the drummer and together
they made a uiulit of It. In the
early mom they decided to go fish-
tug. 1 He (Irummrr hired a suddlc
horse at the stable of Chrismau &
Bangs and soon after mounting it
must have imagined that he was a
cowboy of the wild and woolly west,
for he didn't do a thing but ride
tlie animal into the Helena saloon.
He was gotten out without much
trouble or offense, and then he
took a few turns up and down the
main street. In the meantime the
young man was loading himself
up with bottles of liquids to charm
the fishes. When all wos ready
the young man mounted up behind
the dtutumcr and away they went
out west of town up Silk Creek on
the keen jump. Mr. Chrismau
was soon appraised of the double
load on his valuable horse and
straightway hooked up a rig and
gave chase. About three milesout,
near the old Jones mill, the young
man was met on the road alone and
011 foot. When asked by Chris
mau for the horse he pointed into
the brush and just then the loud
breathing of the hore was heard.
When the horse was reached it
was found on the hillside with its
bend down in the tangled brush
and partly under its body and
nearly strangled, while the poor
brute was as wet with lather and
prespiratiou as if he had been
dragged out of a pond. The horse
was with much difficulty gotten
onto its feet and assisted to the
road and brought into town.
When the precious pair got to
town the marshal took them in
chnrte airl locked them in the city
bastile. When they sobered up
and were taken before the City
Recorder that official fined the
drummer $10 and costs and the
young man ?5 and costs. Pay
ment for injuries to the horse was
guaranteed to Mr. Chrismau and
the drummer took the southbound
In Fkom Saginaw'.
I.nst Saturday was pay day at
the Booth-Kelly plant at Saginaw
and a good number of the men
came to town to make purchases
and enjoy the delights of town life
for a day or two The addition on
our streets of so many men made
the town look lively indeed and
the business men were kept busy
for n while attending to their wants.
The men from the mills and log
ging camps are all fine fellows and
well behaved and they are always
welcomed to Cottage Grove.
The little fellows who uphold the
sport of baseball in this town were
invited down to Youcolla on Mon
day to try conclusions with the
boys of that town. Our boys
started off early in the morning by
livery team, made the long drive,
played the game with vim and re
turned late in the evening iu the
most enthusiastic spirits with vic
tory crowning their play. I lie
score was 19 to 12 in favor of Cot
Ln and Chin Badly Cut.
The little 6-year-old daughter of
George Harrison of Divide had a
very serious and painful accident
befall her last week. She was play
ing in the woodhouse and in some
manner an old fashioned sickle tell
iinon her., cutting the lip and chin
to the bone. Dr. Snapp sewed up
the cut and the little girl is now
intlio early part of tho week by Dra.
alio him lieim pottinij alonjr lino and will
