taxed beyond its capacity, many present

selves to such places as could be found.
Nearly all of the principal citizens, their

was beautifully attired in white satin en
train with white veil and orange blossoms,
while her maids looked bewitchingly in
white silk andsatin. The groom andhis

THE GALT RA1LWAY.
The Survey Finished and the Engineers
Leave for the East.
Chief Engineer Barclay completed his
preliminary survey of the Galt railway
from Lethbridge to Fort Benton this
morning, and in company with Contractor
Donald Grant took his departure for the
east on this afternoon's train. - As we
have remarked before, Mr. Barclay never
talks about his business, though socially
he is a most agreeable companion. The
same can be said of Mr. Grant. About
railroad matters they are as silent as the
tomb. But from certain arrangements
and remarks we infer that Fort Benton
will see more of these gentlemen before
many months roll by.
HOW GODAS ESCAPED.
He Tells the Story to Sheriff Hathaway-His
When Sheriff Hathaway saw Godas at
Calgary, where he went to bring him
back to Helena, the half-breed told him
how he affected his escape from the Lewis
and Clarke county jail and the course he
took afterwards. The plan was originated
and carried out by Brown, Finnegan, Da
vis and White, the two latter escaping
with Godas. The escape was made about
9 o'clock Sunday morning, July 15. Af
ter getting outside of the jail yard Godas
parted company with White and Davis,
who told him they were going to try to
m ake their way to Chicago. It is sup
posed they reached their destination, as
they have never been heard from. Godas
struck up Dry Gulch and reached the
outskirts of the city without seeing any
one. He was supplied with provisions to
last for several days. After going south
for a few miles he turned west. By keep
ing in the woods he gained the main
range, and followed it to the north travel
ing two days and nights without seeing a
The third night out he walked over a
precipice and lay insensible at the bottom
for a long while. Regaining consciousness
he began his tramp, and when near Ca
dotte's pass met two Indians, who gave
him food and furnished him a horse. He
reached the Flathead country, where he
fell in with a camp of Indians who fur
nished him with another horse, with
which he reached the Piegan agency. The
Indians concealed him for several days.
Being recuperated, he followed the main
range across the British line. Near Ed
munton he was discovered by the Indian
police and pursued so closely he had to
abandon his horse and take to the bush.
The nextday he was captured, turned
over to the mounted police, who took him
to Calgary, where he now is. The mount
ed police received a reward of $300, which
Sheriff Hathaway paid out of his own

PEIGAN AGENCY, Dec. 12, 1888.
All holidays are called "Big Sundays"
by the Indians, but when the annual an
nuity issue takes place it is the Sunday
of all, spelled with a two-story "S," with a
The issue is now being made. The
whole force of the agency employes is
busily engaged in handling the various
articles to be given away. Major Bald
win is here, there and everywhere, now
advising this, again commanding that. C.

ly finds time for breathing, and none to
spare even to comment on. last night's
game of whist. J. P. Wagner, the rus
tling issue clerk, is so busy checking off
names and articles issued that one would
think that nothing could ever remove
the look of care upon his face. Here are
huge piles of comfortable coats, bales of
quilts and blankets, stacks of sheeting,
flannel, ginghams, boots, shoes and hose;
in fact everything required to comforta
bly clothe men, women and children.
Without, near the entrance, a dozen or
more of the Indian police, clad in bright,
new uniforms, are seated, al--t, watchful,
ever ready to detect anything in the way
of disturbance, while others of the force
are scattered here and there to preserve
order, but their duties are very light, for
everything is very quiet and peaceable.
The majority of the Indians drawing
rations here are now in the stockade, sit
ting in groups, here and there, and al
though the weather is beautifully clear
and warm, blazing piles of fuel lend addi
tional warmth and comfort to the people.
Boxes of hard bread are wheeled out and
huge caldrons of meat are cooking to be
given to the waiting masses at noon.
White Calf, in his neat suit of navy
blue, casts his paternal eye over his peo
ple with satisfaction at the large back
loads of annuity goods each recipient car
ries, and urges the cooks to hurry up
with the meat stew. Fatherly old Run
ning Crane and a dozen other men of his
age are seated in the shade on the 12th of
December, smoking the pipe of peace
and expatiating upon the change in their
condition during the last few years. No
Chief harangues the crowds from an ele
vated position, but no one appears to pay
any attention to what he is saying.
All at once a stern voice is heard ap
proaching from the entrance to the stock
ade; a bright red light appears from un
der the brim of an overripe campaign tile.
Can it be a delayed torch-light procession
with a new count from some doubtful
precinct? No; it is only the nasal pro
tuberance which graces the face of Big
Nose. Here he comes on his prancing
steed, erect and haughty as when he led
his warriors to battle, clad in a magnifi
cent buckskin suit, fringed and orna
mented with lemon-colored beads. Now
people of his tribe listen, and all must
confess that his words are wise and full
of good meaning.
The aged, the blind and infirm are wait
ed upon first, and many an old crone,
toothless and bent with age, is made glad
by an extra something or a piece of tobac
co from the hands of the agency father.
Now one day's issue is nearly done, and
the people begin to detpart, some on foot,
more on horse back, but the majority get
in their wagons and drive away like far
mers from market.
What a change has been wrought in
the ways of these people. Many readers
of the RIVER PRESS remember how only a
few days ago these same Peigans liked no
better sport than to catch an unprotected
man a short distance away from a settle
ment and an opportunity of "hammering"
such a one was seldom neglected; but
now they see that the ways of the whites
are good, and they evince a strong desire
to adopt the usages of civilization. Many
of them are wearing store clothes, and
when they adopt ordinary pants they no
longer cut a bay window in the ample
part, but wear them whole, with suspend
M.ajor Baldwin and his co-laborer, Mr.
Toole, have introduced many reforms in
the management of these people, and it
has always been done in such a manner
as to appeal directly to their hearts and
the impression has been lasting in every
respect. In consequence their confidence
in their agent is great, and no matter
what occurs, be it a dispute between man
and man, or advice upon some projected
undertaking, they find a ready counsellor
in him, whose good talk never leads them
estray when followed. They have rapidly
adopted ways which are daily bearing
good fruit, and if the same management
could be continued a few years more it
would find them a happy and self-sup
porting people. ***
Several years ago Chamberlin & Co., of
Des Moines, Iowa, commenced the manu
facture of a cough remedy, believing it to
be the most prompt and reliable prepar
ation yet produced for coughs, colds and
croup, that the public appreciate true
merit, and in time it was certain to be
come popular. Their most sanguine
hopes have been more than realized. Over
three hundred thousand bottles of Cham
berlain's Cough, Remedy are now sold
each year, and it is recognized as "the
best made," wherever it is known. It will
cure a severe cold in less time than any
other treatment. For sale by M. A. Flan

HOW I SUFFERED
Seventeen years from a skin disease.
Could not walk or dress myself. A -
mass of disease from head to foot.
Cured in eight weeks by the Cuticura
° At the age of three months a rash (which after
wards proved to be eczema or salt rheum) made its
a ppearance on my face. A physician was called.
He said teething wias the cause; he prescribed
some cooling med'icine, but the sores spread to my
ears and head. Another M. D. was called. He
professed to know all about the case, called it
"Kings Evil," and prescribed gunpowder brim
stone and lard mixed into a salve; but the disease
continued. They could not do anything with it. (
Another prescribed borax, water, and flour; an- I
other linseed poultices. None of them did me any
good at all, but made me worse. The disease con
tinued unabated; it spread to my arms and legs,
till I was laid up entirely, and from continuafly
sitting on the floor on a pillow, my limbs contract
ed so that I lost all control of them, and was utter
ly helpless. My mother would have to lift me out
of and into bed. I could get around on my hands
and feet, but I conld not get on my clothes at all,
and had to wear a sort of dressing gown. My hair
had all matted down or fallen out, and my head,
face and ears were one scab, and I had to have a
towel on my head all the time in summer to keep
the flies off. My parents consulted a prominent
physician and surgeon here in Chicago (the other
phvsicians were of Dundas and Hamilton, Canada)
He said he :ould do nothing for me. He wanted to
cut the sinews of my legs, so that I could walk;
but I would not let him, for if I did get better I
would have no control of them.
The disease continued in this manner until I was
seventeen years old, and one day in January, 1879,
I read an account in the Tribune of your CUTICURA
REMEDIES. It described my case so exactly that I
thought as a last resort, to give them a trial.
When I first applied them I was all raw and
bleeding, from scratching myself, but I went to
sleep almost immediately, something I had not
done for years, the effect was so soothing.
In about two weeks I could stand straight, but
not walk I was so weak, but my sores were nearly
well. As near as I can judge the CUTICURA REME
DIES cured me in about six to eight weeks, and up
to this date (i. e. from January, 1879 to January,
1885) I have not been sick in any way or have had
the least signs of the disease reappearing on me.
