What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

IDQRA -AND'Tfli^MARQUIS D E TUIE ¡M ü á iífe F I O M E OF T© BUIkD METROPOLIS l i ON m m Terrified by wbat is thought to be black hand activities, Mrs. Eugene Tavasci, Italian, aged 29, of Butte, committed suicide by swallowing car­ bolic acid. Mrs. Tavasci was found on the sidewalk after swallowing Jhe poison, which she had procured at a nearby drug store. Indications bear out the theory that Mrs. Tavasci, after leav­ ing the pharmacy, promptly had gulped down the deadly poison and had then walked several blocks until unconsciousness finally bad overta­ ken her. Enshrouded in mystery, the motive of the suicide has not been cleared up, with the exception of a-statement al­ leged to have been made by Mrs. Ta- vasci several months ago to the effect that she had received a threatening letter through the mails, and that if another such one was received by her her life would be the forfeit. Mrs. Tavasci, according to the story told by her husband last_night, was in her usual genial mood during the early-part of the day, when sud­ denly she donned a light coat and an­ nounced that she was going to the corner drug store to procure a pack­ age of patent medicine. Her husband not having observed any indications which would lead him to believe his wife intended self-destruction, per­ mitted her to go. Less than a half hour later he was informed she was in a precarious condition. Ho Never Knew Questioned as to the contents of the mysterious letter received by his wife last summer, Mr. Tavasci declar­ ed that he had never learned the se­ cret of the missive, all his wife hav­ ing to say about it at the time being that it meant the probable breaking up of their home, and that if any let­ ter along similar lines was again re­ ceived by her, she would promptly end her life.- Mrs. Tavasci, it is said, gave no outward signs of having re­ cently received the dreaded epistle. Mrs. Tavasci was born in Helena and had been a resident of Butte for 25 years. Out in the bad lands that fringe the border of Montana and North Dakota, just across the Montana line, is the little town of Medora, scene of the romantic effort of the Marquis de Mores to build a city. The Marquis’ advent occurred in the spring oL 1883. Ho was of noble lineage, the son of a duko of France, and in his veins flowed the blood of the Orleans. He had serv­ ed with distinction as a captain in the French army, and had mar­ ried the daughter of Baron von Hoffman, a multi-millionaire. The Marquis arrived in the bad- rands with a ready made plan to es­ tablish there a huge packing plant that would one day outrival those in Omaha and Chicago, and, backed by his father-in-law’s millions and his own resources, he was prepared to accomplish his purpose. The story is told— scoffed at by some, credited by others— that cer­ tain unscrupulous cattlemen who had agreed to deliver a few thousand dol­ lars’ worth of cattle to the Marquis, arranged to show him the herd at a place several miles out of Medora. The Frenchman arrived at the ap­ pointed spot. Soon came the cowmen with three or four hundred head of stock. The Marquis bought the herd and promised to wait a few hours un­ til another bunch could be rounded up for his inspection. Whereupon the parties of the second part drove .the same cattle around a butte and sold them over again to the unsus­ pecting Frenchman. The story has. probably lost noth­ ing In the years that have passed, but it is typical of the nature of the Mar­ quis’s commercial ventures. He evolved numberless projects that \Medora the Scene of the Exploits of the Marquis do Mores box, was caught when the lid fell and strangled to death. Great Falls— The Kenneth Frazer well, which is being drilled on the Bears Den'structure, has encountered a 65-foot gas sand at a depth of 1,002 feet. Bllllngsp=TJie_x?ortliern”Pacinc is endeavoring to make arrangements for a train service on the Great Nor­ thern between Great Falls and Bil­ lings. Butte— Pat Carney of Waterloo, first man to register at the Finlen hotel when it was opened 40 years ago, was the last guest to leave when it was closed a few days ago. Bozeman— Miss Pleasant Davis, 18 year old daughter of Henry Davis, was struck and probably fatally in­ jured by a stray bullet fired by an unknown hunter. Great Falls— The Wall Street Jour­ nal announces that the Anaconda Copper Mining company will enlarge its wire mill at Great Falls and will install a brass foundry. Great Falls— A good showing of shale oil was struck in a well which Is being drilled in the Benton lake country, about 10 miles north of Great Falls, a few days ago. The strike was made at a depth of 660 feet. t h e w orld Denver— An advance of 1 cent a gallon In the wholesale price of gaso­ line is announced by the Midwest Re­ fining company. . Pittsburgh — Five persons were burned to death in a fire which des­ troyed the Davies hotel in Homestead near here. Tacoma— M. J. Crowder, 29, a Se­ attle taxi driver, was found dead, shot through the heart, on the Seattle highway. Sacramento— An earthquake which lasted for several seconds shook Sac­ ramento and towns in the Sacramento valley a few days ago. Mineola, N. Y.— Captain Harry C. Drayton of Mitchell Field flew from Pinevalley Field, near Camden, N. J., to Mitchell Field, 110 miles, in 42 minutes. Luxor, Egypt— American archaeo­ logists have discovered the body of an Egyptian princess, 4,000 years old, and apparently one of the beaut-les of the first Thebian dynasty. Tacoma— Clara Phillips, convicted California \hammer murderess,’’ and fugitive from justice, was In Tacoma the morning of December 30, three weekB after she escaped from the L ob Angeles county jail. Washington— French policy In the Ruhr was attacked as \ruthless mili­ tarism,” a \violation of the armistice terms and the treaty of Versailles” and an \offense against humanity,” in a statement Issued by Senator Bo­ rah. of Idaho. Moscow— Although Russia has re­ duced her active army to 600,000 men, she has^not shut her eyes to pos­ sible military danger and it is under­ stood that the government has taken a number of measures to create, at the necessary moment, a force able to repulse any attack. rDenver—While police were seek­ ing Louis Cacellitti, ex-soldier and vocational training student at Fort Collins, Colo., for the slaying of two persons and the wounding of three others, one probably fatally, he en­ tered a downtown motion picture theater here, took a front seat in the balcony and shot himself to death. At that time there was a small set­ tlement called Little Missouri on the west bank of the river of that name. The inhabitants— a heterogeneous lot of cowboys, trappers and adventurers — looked askance at the prodigious scheme unfolded by the voluble Frenchman. So the Marquis imme­ diately set about building a town of his own on the east bank of the river. The Preparations Are Elaborate With unlimited capital at his dis­ posal the Marquis de Mores “ builded bis city” without thought of expense. He erected a trading store, a brick hotel, a church, and a brick residence for his father-in-law when that gen­ tleman should desire to sojourn in the Badlands. Across the river on a grassy slope above an especially heavily wooded bottom land he plac­ ed the chateau that still Btands— a re­ minder of dead hopeB and days that aro gone. The chateau, patterned after Washington’s home on the Potomac, was to be a summer home for the Marquis and the Marquise. A coun­ try seat It was, in effect, from whose vantage point the Marquise might watch the rise of her husband’s vast undertakings; where she might rest from the social life of New York and Paris, and which Bhould serve as a base of supplies for hunting trips on those rare occasions when the Mar­ quis could desist from the great task remaining before him. The Madame was known as an excellent horsewom­ an and her skill with arms was said to he no less than that of her daunt­ less husband. To this thirty room castle, then, shortly after its completion, came the beautiful Madame de Mores. With her arrived some twenty-two servants and a fair proportion of the good things of life, which, to one of cultur­ ed tastes, would he indispensable even on the frontier. The chateau was furnished throughout; rich rugs, plate, china, pictures, heavily canop­ ied beds, paintings and books, books, books. The de Mores establishment would have held its own in a place of old traditions. Madame was some­ thing of an artist, having In fact stud­ ied in Paris, and she soon added to the decorations of her new home a number of worthy sketches and water colors of the Badlands. Under the brow of the hill on the dense flat of the Little Missouri the Marquis built his stables and his coachman’s house. Whenever time afforded, the Madame and the Mar­ quis ventured back Into the weird reaches of the Badlands in search of game. The long trips were made in a quaint coach built especially for tbe purpose— a strongly constructed, can­ vas covered vehicle with all sorts of cubbyholes and nooks to hold the spoils of the chase. It was no light adventure, this seeking the wilds of Dakota back in those days. Scattered hands of In­ dians still wandered through the country. Seven years before, on a spot a few miles south of the chateau site, the Ill-fated Custer had bivou­ acked his forces for a day or two on that famous march to the Little Big Horn. Six months after the Marquis ar­ rived on the banks of the Little Mud­ dy there came out of the east another young man. Theodore Roosevelt, bag and baggage, landed in Medora in the fall of 1883, bent upon shoot­ ing a few of the fast disappearing buffalo. That he found the country to his liking and for four years link­ ed his fate with the rough frontier is a matter of history— and it is an­ other story as well. The Marquis purchased 15,000 acres of land and many, many cattle, which he proposed to fatten on the short grass that Is the Badland’s only native pasturage. N e w l i f e ! - T u n m t W t o B S B t s s Di. KINGS PULS • J O T COgiSrgWTaBI1 would turn Medora into a great in­ dustrial center. He built his slaugh­ ter house and, finding that its opera­ tion on a comparatively small scale was unprofitable, early in 1885 he erected a huge abattoir large enough to accommodate the daily slaughter of 100 cattle. He built storage plants at points in tbe east and arranged for tbe selling of his beef in both New York and Chicago. No Use—-Everything Fails But the Three Blind Sisters seem­ ed bent upon perverting his plans. Nobody would buy his dressed meat. Cornfed beef the public apparently preferred. He could not persuade the railroads to grant him rebates suffi­ cient to insure his meeting competi­ tion. He was not to be daunted. Sheep became a side line with the Marquis. The sheep died like flies. He bought droves of horses, paid too much for them and lost heavily. He conceived the idea of establish­ ing a stage line between Medora and Deadwood, South Dakota, just then coming into the public eye because of the discovery of gold In the Black Hills. The Marquis spent freely of the de Mores and the von Hoffman funds In starting this line. Then, just as it was completed, the govern­ ment mail contract was given to a line out of Pierre, South Dakota. This contract was absolutely essen­ tial as a means of handling the over­ head expense. The Marquis’s stages operated fitfully for two years, and then the project died without a strug­ gle— a dead loss to Its originator. But the optimism of the French­ man was exceeded only by his cour­ age. He conceived ideas without num­ ber; he would raise cabbages; he would manufacture pottery out of the Badlands clay; he would make soup as a packing plant by-product, and, with a government contract to fur­ nish this delicacy to the army, would make up for losses sustained In other ways. But one and all his schemes faded and failed. He spent more than a million dollars in his various enterprises. Finally, an unusually rigorous winter depopulated the Bad­ lands of most of its dumb and many of its human Inhabitants, and L. von Hoffman called a halt. In the matter of his personal as­ sociations the Marquis was as unfor­ tunate as in his business ventures. From the first, there was an ineradic­ able antagonism between the French­ man and Theodore Roosevelt. Al­ though these two men, both of aristo­ cratic lineage, had many tastes in common, there existed whenever their paths crossed an unfortunate figurative crossing of swords as well. - O s .. * /-V'-VO Watch Your Daughter! Take Proper Care of Her Health Salt Lake City, Utah.—“When I was coming into womanhood my mother gave me Dr. Pierce’s Favorite Prescription as a special tonic and nervine and I am sure it benefited me, for I have never been afflicted with any form of feminine weakness or suffering. I heartily recommend this ‘Prescription’ to mothers who have young daughters just coming into womanhood.”—Mrs. EUen Balui- forth, 252 West 7th St., South. Health is a young woman’s most valuable asset. It is easily improved, i ust ask your druggist for Dr. ‘iercc’s Favorite Prescription in tab­ let or liquid form, or send 10c to Dr. Pierce’s Invalids’ Hotel, Buffalo N. N., for trial pkg, tablets, Perhaps It was a natural incompati-. bility between two strong characters in a small community; two very big toads in a, very little puddle. But the fact remains that they were not friends. However, the tra­ dition that they were occasionally on the verge of settling disputes by vio­ lence is scoffed at by men who knew them both. And very little credence is given the gossip that the Marquis held Roosevelt partly responsible for the failure of the De Mores projects. But the barrier between them was a reality and that barrier threw the Marquis on the wrong side of the representative cattlemen of the Bad­ lands, the men who idolized Theodore Roosevelt and to this day hold his memory sacred.1«- The Marquis de Mores was of the old French nobility and he believed In the divine right of kings and of the descendants of kings; Theodore Roosevelt, although he was of -the American gentry— if there is such an institution— ever re­ mained democratic to the core. When, forced by the unseen hand of Fate and the perfectly visible tightly closed fist of a satiated father- in-law, the Marquis was compelled to abandon in toto his activities in the Badlands, he departed for Asia to hunt tigers. The Madame accom­ panied him. His romantic career was ended in a manner consistent with the adventurous spirit of the man. In 1896 he went into the interior of Africa on an exploring expedition. Against the advice of a faithful body servant who went with him, he took on as escort some natives of ques­ tionable friendliness. Deep in the wilds of northern Africa the two men were attacked. The Marquis was killed and his body was horribly mu­ tilated. The servant, managing to escape, carried the news of the mur­ der to the French military command­ er of the district. Arrests were made but, through the influence of the Marquise, the leaders were pardoned. Madame do Mores retired to her chateau in France. Only once did she C h e c k i t w i t h D r .

In 1904, with her daughter, Athenaise, and her son, Paul, now Duke of Vallom- brosa, she sojourned in Medora for a period of six weeks. During her stay In the place that held so many memories she entertained en masse the population of the Badlands— an occasion that will ever remain a land­ mark in Badland traditions. Ma­ dame de Mores returned to her se­ cluded French home where she died several years ago. Medora still sits by the road, not exactly a “ ragged beggar Bunning,” but surely a place whose glory has departed. Less than 200 persons claim it as home. Only a few are left who can recall the old cattle days. The Badlands have been “ home­ steaded” and fenced and one must drive fifty miles to reach a spot one- fourth that far by the old untram­ meled trails. The Marquis’B chapel is opened once a month for services; the brick bouse built for Baron von Hoffman has long since been present­ ed to an honored retainer; tbe old hotel burned years ago. The packing plant, meeting a like fate, has also passed Into oblivion. Only the tall smokestack remains to typify the lofty aims of the man who built it. A monument to Roosevelt has recent­ ly been started in the public square, but the spirit of tbe Marquis must be content with the forlorn chimney ob a memorial.
