Coaoey and J. H. McDermott of the rail

May 9 last C. W. Cannon owned and bhld
acres of land on the west side of town,

Severe and Painful Aceldent About Three
Miles From Town.
Thomas Williams, aged about 80 years,
was severely injured yssterday morning
while working in a mine on the Briscoe
property in Tucker guloh. about three miles
from town. Williams and Charles A. Stod
dard were stoping ore at a point where two
veins dip at an angle of forty-five degrees.
"Williams was working about fifteen feet in
advance of his companion when the earth
i between the two veins gave way, almost
i burying him. Stoddard heprd the cave-in
and rushed to Williams, whom he suc
ceeded in releasing with much difficulty.
SThe injured man was carried out to the
i cabin and word sent to town for help. Dell
Dick sent up a team, but the road was so
rough that Williams could not stand the
pain inourred in riding. Eight men then
procured a stretcher and carried the
injured man all the way to St. Peter's hos

h-.Mayor Bradford Talks About the
Agrioultuial Possibillties Close
Henry VillSrd's Talk on Irrigation s
Brings Out What Had Been c
The Proflt in Tcuek Gardening and Fruit
Baising-The Markht tueady if We
Will Furnish the Produ$g.
Ex-Mayor Donald Bradford is bes'of the '1
most enthusiastio believers in Montana in
the agricultural possibilities of the state.
He has demonstrated his faith by his works,
having carried to a sueessful iease the
building of the Dearborn canal, and this
year he has demonstrated also that the land
in the Prickly Pear valley near Helena is,
properly handled, very prolific. Talking
yesterday of the interview with Henry Vil
lard, published exclusively in Ta IunDa
ranaIT., Mr. Bradford said:
"The interview with Mr. Villard regard- t
ing tie value of farming and irrigation
brings to the front what I have advocated
for two years, and have carried into effect
by building the Dearborn canal system,
thereby opening up for settlement 75,000
nacres of fine free lands adjacent
to Helena and the whole mining
region of Montana; also by demon
strating that intelligence, well placed
will produce as great a profit, if not greater,
on a farm in Montana with ample irriga
tion, than any other business enterprise.
Being to a large extent interested in this
question, I determined to carry on a se
verely practical investigation by farming a -
tract of land in the vicinity of Helena.
That it is a success I am glad to assure
those who have invested their capital in
such property. Beginning work during the
month of March of this year, a crop of po
tatoes, cabbages and hay was raised, cre
ating a net profit of 100 per cent, upon the
capital invested. Think what could be
done in this Prickly Pear valley alone in
the same direction. Assuming 20,000 acres
to be the area supplied with ample irriga
tion as at present, one can readily realize
the profit accruing to the city of Helena by
Alguring the actual profits as this year dem
onstrated. The average gross return, per
sore, from the total area was $140. Twenty
thousand acres will equal $2,800,000 all of
which will accrue to the benefit of Helena,
"Pessimists will exclaim that the market
will be glutted. The question at once
arises, where is Montana's market, and how
far will is extend? As it is with her gold,
her silver, her copper, lead, cattle,. sheep
and wool, so will it be with her potatoes,
cabbages and strawberries. To-day Colo
rado and Utah are the masters of the more
important eastern markets, selling their
exquisite potatoes at priees not dreamed of
by the eastern gardeners, occupying the
same relative position with the latter as the
finer foreign wool does to our domestic
fiber (notwithstanding the ruinous tariff
tariff added), not in the least constituting
an elmentin the net result. If Colbrado
and Utah, why not doubly so Montana,
whose soil is superior to that of any other
state or country; whose olimate is 20 per
cent. less severe than that of Colorado:
whose position geographically is equal to
any other,--havinmg direct communication
with every pointof the compass. With en
terprise that commands the notice of the
world, why, I say, cannot Montana enter
the markets of the populous east with the
products of lher gardens and reap the prof
its others are fighting for.
"The many young men now residing in
Helena and those anticipating a residence
there cannot enter a more pleasant nor
more profitable field. of work than that of
truck-patching and raising small fruits.
Farming needs the experience of the count
ing house to bring out its good points. It
requires the ability not only to plant and
reap but to sell in the most profitable mar
kets with concentrated effort upon the part
of those mbst interested. Utilize the ex
perience of the large mercantile establisbh
ments of the east that built up an annual
business aggregating millions of dollars by
commercial traveling men entering every
nook that promised trade. They created
business by advertising the utility of their
wares. Why can we not by a strong pull
through a business organization push our
products into the millions of mouths
now standing wide open eager
to receive the fine mealy
potatoes of the Dearborn valley and the
Prickley Pear? Every produce house in our
midst is evidence, not of our prosperity but
of our weakness and of the fact that hundreds
of wealth is slipping through our fingers
annually for tlN necessaries of life, all of
which and much more can be retained here 1
and swell the deposits in our banks. Let
the young men cultivate the soil instead of
idling away valuable energy in a cigar
stand, saloon or real estate oilce. ' he
