Sold Whisky to Indians.
Frank Wilson, a stranger, was ar est
ed, Sunday, by City Marshal Dukes,
charged with selling whisky to Indians.
Wilson was given a preliminary hearing,
Monday, before U. 8. Commissioner
Geo. T. Prather, and the evidence was
deemed sullicient to justify notifying
the authorities at Portland. Deputy
U. S. Marshal Proebstel came up Tues
day and took the prisoner to Portland.
The evidence is strong against Wilson,
and conviction will probably mean a year
There have been numerous caes of
drunken Indians in town of late and
several arrests have been made of white
men charged with selling liquor to
the Indians, but convicting evidence
dence against the offenders has been
hard to secure, and the men had to
be turned loose. Wilson was arrested
once before for this offense, and prom
ised to leave town when turned loose,
but lie showed no of intentions of
doing so w hen let out of jail, so Mar
shal Dukes kept strict watch of the man
Sundav, and finally caught him in the
act. Wilson was noticed wending his
wav towards the railroad bridge, so
Percy Wells ami Hen Thyson took a posi
tion "in the woods and awaited develop
ments. The man was seen to supply
some Indians with a bottle, when he
was immediately placed under arrest.

A city ordinance and other interesting
reading will lie found in our supplement
. Van Johnson's Cat
The following was related by our old
friend Van Johnson and caught for the
Glacier by our shorthand reporter. We
give it to our readers because of its in
teresting parallel of the traits of charac
ter of the human race often shown so
clearly in the lives of the lower orders
Old Bluie is dead. She . was a good
cat. The most intelligent I have ever
known. She was of tine appearance,
having long, line, silky fur, of the most
aristocratic nialtese blue. Shedisplayed
her intelligence by learning so many
things without any training whatever,
for 1 never attempted to teach her any
thing. When sue was outside and the
door was not latched she would push it
open wiih her head and come ill. If
the door was latched she would scratch
on the door and wait for tne to open it.
hen inside and she wanted out, she
would catch the lower corner of the
door w ith her paw and pull it open. If
it was latched she would come to me
and catch me bv the knee or wrist until
I spoke to her, then would run to the
door to be let out. When she was hun
gry she would pull my knee or hand
and look up in my face; but when she
wanted to lie petted she would take hold
of me in the same way and hold her
head down and look towards the floor
until I stroked her head. If I did not
do so at once she w ould repeat the oper
ation, gently pulling me until she re
ceived the attention she desired She
was very shy o strangers and w man
kind she did not like at all. When any
oilier man was stopping with me she
soon became acquainted with huu ami
treated him the same as she did me.
She was a great hunter, and in the
spring season when the diggers and
chipmunks had their young, would stay
in the fields for weeks living upon them,
never coining to the house to be fed.and
she k pt the house and barn free from
rats and mice. Many men have told me
she was worth $500, iind I would not
have given her away for $5 at any time.
Now for her bad "traits of character,
for, like the best of men, she w as not
all good. She was very sly and if she
was in the kitchen alone and the clip
board door was unlatched, if she was
hungry, would open the cupboard door
in the same way she did the door of the
house and helu"lierself to anything she
wanted to eat ; but if any one came in
suddenly, she would slip quickly away
looking as innocent as possible and en
deavor to draw our attention ' to some
other place. I had forgiven her all her
shortcomings, and although the hired
man called my attention to Hluie's full,
sleek condition and accused her "Oi taking
my young chickens, 1 could not believe
that she had caught my 19 missing
chicks until I met her in the path with
one of t hem in her mouth. She knew it
was wrong to kill my little chickens, for
she dropped it and ran into the house,
and w hen I came in asked me for some
thing to eat. I was sorry to kill her,but
there was no alternative, and when she
came to me, I took a stick of stove wood
and with one blow ended her career. So
Bluie is dead. Peace to her ashes.

There is a man in our town,
And this man is a daisy,
He turns the prices upside down,
And drives the merchants crazy.
He decorates your walls with grace,
For dust and dirt he leaves no place.
Crowds all others out of the race,
This brilliant blooming daisy.
He keeps the finest stock in town,
And marks his pricesall 'way down,'
And is a workman of renown,
And to his business freezes.
