handsthat may not only be of great^damage to the pro|^vrty, but may cost^him his job. He has also got to keep^in close touch with the people who^live near the mines and make friends^of them, because they can make him^and the company all kinds of trouble^it they are so disposed, and they will^In' so disposed if they are not trest^^le] as they should lie. One of the^most serious mistakes an engineer (.an^make is to neglect getting absolute ti^^tle for his employer of all the prop^^erty he expects to operate. This one^tiling alone has cost the mine OWsV^(rs of Butte a great many millions of^dollars and the loss of a number of^lives, anil is largely responsible for^the tough and lawless element that^is a curse to that city today.
Itis these business qualiflrations^that go to help make the successful^and high-priced engineer of today, and^I want all of you boys to look on your^work here more as a business proiio-^sition. This world is a progressive^one and the man who can turn out the^most work of a given quality in a giv^^en time is the man who is going to^get the work to do, and you do not^need to fear that your employer will^not notice that you are doing more^work than the other fellow who is re-^(ching the same pay. In all of the^various mills in which I am interested,^it is more a source of anxiety to me^to llnd better positions for men who^have shown themselves worthy of^them than it is to the men themselves,^and I am always looking for a chance^to raise to a belter position a man^who is trying honestly to make a^study of my welfare, and is trying io^advance himself so that he can bel^^ter serve me.
Iwant to impress on you all the nec^^essity of studying and practicing^economy in all of your work. Time^is money and you want to learn to^economize in time; you want to learn^to strike while the ron Is hot. Vou^go into a blacksmith shop where twen^^ty blacksmiths are employed and you^will see one man put an Iron into the^lire and then stand with a far away^look in his eyes, his mind on some^^thing else until the iron is hot, ho^will then take it out and lay it on^(he anvil and look at it and turn it^over a time or two before he starts^work on it, his Iron has cooled off^some and it will take more work on^his part to accomplish the same enda^than it will for the man next to him,^who has probably made careful mental^calculations as to just what he wants^to do, and the instant the iron strikes^the anvil he goes at it with all of his^might and every blow counts. The^latter man has done the larger poi-^tion of his work with mental energy,^while the former has used more phy^^sical energy and a great deal inoie^of his employer's time lo accomplish^tlie same results. No matter what^branch of your work you are at. Just^try to sec how much time you can^save. When you take a transit or level^out to do field work, just stop and^think for an'instant and remember,^tiiat if you had a party of ten men^working with you and that if you^could save one minute sMh time you^sei up your instrument during an or-^dUUiry toys work, that you would save^your employer considerable uuin than^Mittr salary would amount to. and if^h^ had other men in his employ in^the same capacity who did not save^tlie extra minute, when a slack time^came it istit hard to guess which one^would be let out first. When you go^to work on a lathe in a shop, study^^otir lathe ami try and see just how^much it will stand crowding. You^may go into a machine shop and see^two men working side by side on the^same kind of lathe or planer and the^same kind of work, and one will be^taking a cut a sixteenth of an inch^deep and the other a cut of three-^sixteenths or a quarter of an inch,^^uch one will turn out ine same class^of work antl use the same amount^of physical exertion, but one will mm^out twice the quantity the other one^will and the boss is (he first man lo^notice it.
Anotherthing you want to cultivate^here in school is the art of making^friends of everybody ami also of keep^^ing them your friends. When you see^a boy who is always having truubie^with his classmates you can make up^your mind that either all of the rest^of the class are in the wrong or else^he Is, and he generally has a pretty^bard time convincing all of the rest^of the class that they are .in the^wrong, and when he gets out of col^^lege and up against the cold world^and gets a jolt where he has a number^of men at work under him and he^cannot get along harmoniously with^tliem. it is generally he that gets ii,-^vited into the office t get his time^instead of all the men. You want to^remember that all men are entitled^to their own ideas on any subject and^if they do not agree with yours it is^not necessary for you to antagonize^them or quarrel with them over it.
Theengineer in the pursuit of his^profession is probably brought closer^to the hand of nature than he who fol^^lows any other profession. Practically^all of his work is in the development^and use of the various forces and^treasures of nature. It matters not^whether he looks out a path where the^ponderous locomotive can climb over^mountain ranges, or bores holes^through the mountain for It, or har^^nesses the waters of the streams and^rivers of the country and compels^them to furnish light, heat and trans^^portation for humanity or takes the^lion ores fro mthe ground and the^timbers from the land and converts^them Into ships of commerce and mas^sive buildings or digs the precious^and baser materials from the earth^or lays the submarine cable across the^briny deep and makes foreign nations^our next door neighbors, he Is always^dealing with nature direct, and it is^these great forces and hidden treas^nr. | of nature that you boys are here^learning to deal with, and you want^to remember that you will always have^plenty of raw material to work on;^and also remember that there Is plen^^ty of capital in the world that Is look^^ing for investment in any project that^an engineer can show to be profitable^and safe for them to Invest in.
Someof you boys may say that^tin re is no opening left for you to^make n start on, let us see; wo will^tal.i^ the Gallatin country as an ex^simple, Just stop and think how many^streams there are flowing out of the^mountains in this county that go to^make up the Missouri river and stop^and figure out the quantity of water^that they carry and what elevation it^comes from, and I dare say that It will^exceed 1511,000 hoise power; think of^the number of days' work and the^number of dollars It would take to^develop all of this power. Some of
yousay, What could we do with it If^it was developed ' In answer I would^say that the Northern Pacific railway^has to keep on hand and In service,^locomotives aggregating over L'o.ooo^horse power just to help push their^tralus over the Boxemaa, Butts and^Garrison hills. If electric railways^were built so that the grain and pro^duce of the Gallatin and Flathead val^^leys could be hauled to the railroad^and the people could be carried as^passengers, It would absorb nearly 10,-^000 horse power. If all of the grain^that is raised in this county were to^be milled here before it was shipped,^it would probably take 15.ooo horse^power more. If ail of the residences^and store and office buildings in the^county were heated by electricity, as^is now being dote- in some parts of^the east, it would use up L'5,tioo horse^power more. And if the paper mill^at Manhattan waa to adopt eleetric^power, and If tli vast onyx quarries^north of Manhattan were to open up^and put in electric saws for cutting^and |K)llshlng onyx, and if the asbes^^tos mines south of Bo/.enian were^opened up and run to their full ca^^pacity, and if two or three beet sugar^factories were to be built here in the^valley, the sane as they are being^built in Idaho Jusl south of us, we^could use every particle of that pow^^er right here in the county, and boy,^the field is open for you, there is no^reason on earth why some of you^boys who are listesJag lo me should^not be the men in that near future who^will work out the details of convert^^ing nature's bountiful resources right^here In Gallatin county to the uses^and comforts of mankind and to the^honor and glory of yourselves.
TheNorthern I'aciflc takes pleasure^in stating that it can now supply to^all who have trial tad, contemplate vis^^iting, or are interested in Yellowstone^Park, a large Panoramic Picture of^the park.

FrankPick and Edmund Wright^have residences in the course of con^^struction.
Therehave been many other houses^built in the year but it would be im^^possible to give a complete list. In^many instances it has been impossi^^ble to find out the names of the con^^tractors and the cost of the buildings.^In some instances the cost has been^approximated by comparison with^other buildings of like dimensions and^features. The total cost of buildings^in the city, however, m approximately^what is given in this article. One^thing that should be noted in regard^to the building that has been done is.^that houses are still at a premium in^Lewistown and there are none stand^^ing vacant but are spoken for long^before they are completed.

UnparallelFlight of Carrier Pigeon.
Utlca.N. Y., Dec. 21.^An exhaust^^ed carrier pigeon, whicu had on its^leg a tag. inscribed ^A. C. M. 390,^^has been found at Doleville, Herkimer^county. Adolf C. Harn, a pigeon fan^^cier, lived in Doleville until a year^ago. when he went to New Doleville^in southern California, taking his plg-

birdis one of his flock which return^^ed lo its old home. Such a flight,^however, is unparalleled.
SmallBoys of Town Make Practice of^Purloining Small Articles.
..ie merchants of the city have beeu^suffering from the depredations of^small boys tor some time and large^numbers of small articles have ueen^stolen from the stores. The practice^of taking these articles finally became^so widespread among the smaller boys^of the town that the business men^were forced to complain of it to the^city marshal. One store lost a large^number of small bottles of perfume^and toys of every description. Au-^oilier lost silk handkerchiefs and a^dozen or more mouth harps. Toys^sieined to be the great temptation to^tlie boys and they have taken things^at every opportunity. The merchants^have been unable to watch their^slocks, as it has seemed to be nec^^essary to do, but a number of the^boys have been caught red-handed^and made to luru over wnat they had^purloined. ,
MarshallBebb last week arrested^two or three of the principal offend^^ers ami after giving them a good^lecture he let them go with the ad^^monition not to repeal their perform^^ances or something might happen^which would bt worse than a lecture.^The parents of the children should not^allow them to go to the stores un^^accompanied and thus be thrown in^the way of temptation. Many of^them are too young to realize the ser^^ious part of the mateer and have been^U J into the practice by copying after^larger boys, who should know better.^The merchants are desirous that no^names be given this time, but if the^practice continues something of a^more serious nature will have to be^done.
