IN BY-GONE DAYS.
lWrly Life in Holena Bevealed by an Old
- Aount Book.
An old account book of J. W. Lefevre,
who ran a gooery store and eating house
in the early days of Helena, and was after
ward at Blgckfoot City, is now the property
of W. B. Votaw, and is on exhibition at the
window of Woodmsnp A anders. It oon
tains some curious entries, and some which
show the prices prevailing and other fea
tures of pioneerlife in a mining camp. It
ap ears from the book that one George
Sanders, on May 8, 1865, bought three
drinks and stood the bartender off. The
account was never squared, as appears from
the following oredit under Mr. Sanders'
debt: "Hanged. Nov. 23, 1865.'
Col. Larrabee, it also appears,
owed for eight days' board, $29.72, and
and among the eredits to square the ao
count appears "one revolver." There was
a newspaper here in those days, the pro
prietora of which must have been quite
temnrate. They were charged with $10.6
worth of oidtr, and paid the bill, Prices
were high in Helena in those days, accord
lag to the following entries: Twenty-one
pounds crackers, $10.506 one pound can
dies 40 cents, one pie and glass of cider 86
cents, one can oysters $1.50, seven sacks
flour 206, eggs $1.25 per dozen, 400 pounds
sugar $198. Salt sold for 50 and 55 cents a
pound. It cost something treat a crowd, as
one of the old-timers is charged with $4.50
for eighteen drinks. Greenbacks were at
a dissount. One man ran up a
big older account and tendered a $20
bill in payment. He was credited with $16.
Forty per cent., however, appears to have
been the prevailing discount on small sums
of greebbaeks. Everybody could not be
identified by his name a quarter of a cen
tury ago. For instance, "Deaf Dick's" bar
tender stood good for two meals for some
needy fellow and was charged with $2.560.
"Billy, Bird creek rancher, two meals,
$2.50, cider $1," and "The Duteh Butcher,
ten drinks $2.60," are among the entries.

LOOKING FOR HIS COLLECTOR.
T. J. Brennan Says He Has Been Swin
T. J. Brennan, of the Consolidated Copy
ing company, of Chicago, is in town look
ing for Byron L. Gilkerson, whom he says
has swindled him out of $1560. A week ago
last Sunday Brennan says he employed
Gilkerson, at Butte, to do some collecting
for him in Jefferson county. He started
Gilkerson out with $40. Mr. Brennan ar
rived in Helena last night from a trip over
Gilkerson's route. He found that the lat
ter had also raised various small sums at
Boulder and Wickes in addition. Last
Su.day Mr. Brennan wrote to Editor Gil
kerson, of the St. Paul Humane Journal,
saying that if he would make the amount
good he would not prosecute his brother.
He has received no reply. Before
coming to Helena Brennan notified
the police at Butte, Missoula and
Great Falls to arrest Gilkereon. Last
night he notified the authorities hereto
look out for him. Gilkerson was seen
in Helena last Tuesday night.
Gilkerson and a Miss toribner came here
from St. Paul in the latter part of August
in the interests of the St. Paul Humane
Journal and the Massachusetts Humane
society. They stopped at various places
between St. Paul and Helena to organize
societies for the prevention of cruelty to
dumb animals. Prom here they went to
Butte where Gilkereon was obliged to pub
lish a card in which he apologized for re
marks he made concerning Miss Scribner's
character. He is a middle-aged man of
medium size and when here wore a dark
suit and stiff hat.

of Managers to Be Held
Great fltorte to Seunare a Good
Zxhibit From the Miles
An Aspeal to the larmers of the state
to Pleat Espeealdly for the Eapoet
tlon lNet Year.
November 2 the board of managers of the
World's fair for Montana will hold their
regular quarterly meeting in Helena. And
when the executive commission, W. M,
Bickford, and Bearetary Ramsey, make
their reports the board will find that con
siderable progress has been made in th
matter of having Montana make a good
'exhibit.at the Columbian exposition.
Secretary Ramsay has sent to the mining
omnflanies and mining men generally
throughout the state a lotter of which the
following is a copy:
"At the World's Colnmbian exposition to
be held in 1893 at Chicago, there will be an
active and laudable competition be
tween the states of Colorado, Ida
ho and Montana for supremacy
in the mineral display made by these
states. We went the active and personal
interest of every mine owner with as, and
hereby solicit from you a statement of what
you can furnish us to aid on the display,
and would also ask that you present at your
convenience any suggestions or opinions
you may have, or entertain with regard to
the mining exhibit to be, The board ol
World's fair managers can do mach to
make the Montana display a success, but
without the individual assistance of prom
inent mine owners they can hardly succeed
as they wish to."
So far Mr. Ramsay has received two re
plies, one from the Boston and Montans
company, in which the promise is made tc
send to the display made by Montana a
series of the intermediate products fron
ore up to refined copper, showing the dif
ferent styles of concentrating, smelting,
electrolytic and furnace reining.
Hon. J. K. Clarke, of Butte, also agrees
to contribute. He suggests, as a way to
attract attention to the display and induce
exhibitors to come forward, that the stats
be divided into districts, named after the
principal towns, and that in this ways
healthy competition will be engendered, in.
euring a fine mineral exhibit at the fair in
It is hoped by Secretary Ramsay that the
mining men of the state generally take at
interest in the matter, and he wants all
those who will help in the mineral display
to notify him, so when the board meets is
November he will be able to give some idea
of what may be expected in the matter of a
Besides the mineral display, Montane
hopes to show the world she can raise fruits,
vegetables and cereals. To do hIbis, the
growere throughout the state nIat give
their active support. The following letter
has been sent to as many farmers as could
be reached, and it is hoped that all the
ranohmen of the state will regard the mat
ter as a formal one:
"I hope you will take special pains and
assist the member of the board of World's
fair managers of your county to have the
same properly and creditably represented
at the World's Columbian exposition al
Chicago in 1893. It is now time that this
work was commenced by all farmers select
inug the very best seed obtainable to plant
next year, also to prepare the ground foI
next season's crop. Every farmer should
take special pains and pride to outdo hit
neighbor next season, as the crop of 1892 in
the one to be exhibited at said exposition.
"Please see what yon can do to aid in thin
work and select a favorable piece of ground
and give the same your especial attention,
Every resident of this state should have the
welfare of Montana near to his heart, and
I hope you will give this your immediate
As a result of these appeals, quite a num
ber of samples of fruit have been received
by Secretary Ramsay. Among them are
some grapes, grown by A. G. England, twc
miles from Missoula, and two lots of fine
large apples from the same county.

BIG POTATO CROP.
Ex-Mayor Bradford Has Ralsed About One
Million Pounds Thle Year.
Ex-Mayor Donald Bradford has proved
beyond question the fertility of the soil in
the vicinity of Helena, Wherever irrigation in
possible. Last spring he planted sixty
acres of potatoes of the White Elephani
variety and as a result he now has 1,000,001
poands for the market. He uses a modern
potato digger and it keeps twenty men busy
walking after the digger picking up and
sacking the potatoes. They are loaded in
wagons on the farm, brought into Helena
and stored in a warehouse on the Montane
Central track. The warehouse is ao ai
ranged as to prevent both freezing and
sweating and the ex-mayor's farm this yeas
will likely prove a profitable investment.
The potatoes are superior both as regarda
qnality and size. Four of them seen yes
terday weighed ten pounds, the largest oi
the lot going three and one-half pound.,
The ranch is about five miles from Helena,
on the road to 8tubbe Ferry. Next yeas
Mr. Bradford will put 150 acres in potatoes.
There are about 1,000 acres in the ranch.
