MOTANIANA OEE HUNING, When the Vast Game Preserves Were Not Troubled by White Men. The Adventure of Lieut. Fremont, Stationed at Fort Missoula in 1879. Invents a New Toboggan-Snow Sheelng in the lills--How Army Men Kill Time and Deer. 1Written for THF. TIELrN. INDEF.NDEyNT ] In 1879 the country in the northwestern part of Montana was practically a wilder ness. Fort Missoula. on the western slope of the Rocky mountains, was the last out post in this direction, and between it and Lake Cour d'Alene there were vast game preserves untioubled by white men. My regiment was stationed at Fort 1lis soula. and in company with one of the officers, an ardent and accomplishedsports man, I spent most of my time in the moun tna:n. The winter bunting was always best after a fresh fall of snow. '1 he old trails made by the animals were partly filled up and the new trails could be followed easily. Still, this advantage was about balanoed by the absence of foliage, and the conse quent great distance at which the hunter became visible; also the glistening white surface of the snow lit up the recesses of the thickest woods, and we had to take the utmost care to avoid being discovered by the game. '['hen, too, when thaw and frost alternated the snow-crust became thbck and the sound made by walking through could be heard long distances. Even with snowshoes this caused the loss of many a promiing chance to get within shot of game we had followed for hours, and sometinmes it sent us to bed supperless. T'he hunting grond decided onu, our first ca:e was to find a secrie spot to pitch the tent. The thierimometer often fell to forty deg:ees and fifty detgreen be!ow zero, and a sheltered p:act, near wood and water, was a ecessity. 'the very hobest shelter was in thickets of "lodge-pole" pines. so called because the Indians use them as poles for thi ir 'lodni'es" or teutl: they art a iloe together that it is often imtlossible to squeeze between them. (Orowing tall and free from branches, and only two or three inches in diameter, a suflicient space could be earily cleared. Our beds were made of the Iragrant . ends of Iin and taotuatack booghl, covered with bulalej robes anid blankets. Then the Sibley stove lighted, we could defy wind and weathler. As soon as it was light in the mornling we cooked our breakfast and were oil. (Our hunlting shits consisted of heavy undo.wear, "prairie btiadlcleth" (canvas) coat and trousars., loccasina or rubber boots uader which were worn several pairs of ntoclil', , a flannel shi't and a close fitting acci that could be pulled down over imoast of the lond in case of a blizzard. liut such wtas the violent exertion of ,these snountaiu cll.lbhs the cap was never worn unless we had to face a storm; it wits habitually carried slung to the bolt and ani ordinary white handkerchiot was tied around the Leind. Our appearance with this hea'Jl;ar, and our faces well blackened arenud tie e. . with charcoal to lesson the effect of the light and prevent snowblind ness, was annrtill ig lint preposaessitng, but the comfort wes tins, enkible. Foon titfter leaving camp the coats would follow the ca!s and be slnug to the belts or the light, strong rope that each carried around the waist or over the shoulder. On cold nights the deer leave the moun tains and come down to the valleys and take shelter in the brush by the streams. When the day breaks they commence to climb the mountains, feeding as they go. '.This habit gives tile hunter who makes an early start an opportunity to head them off and as they are feeding it .Is easy to ap proach unseen. On this particular hunt my friend and I followed the spurs of the mountain and we soon were walking along the first plateau on an old deer trail well beaten in the deep snow. Expecting to lind a fresh trail any minute we put on our snowshoes and as it was a little late turned off up the side of the mountain. Soon the rising sun made it sufficiently light to see distant objects, and on the side of a little gulch we made out lines of ir regular, meandering trails, leading from one good feeding ground to another. The next moment we discovered that three deer were lnbove us. Unless they had seen us we would be able to head them off and get a shot at them. Retracing our stepsl until we reached the gulch adjoining this we silently snow-shoed A NEW TOROGGAN. rapidly up it. After ascending; a half mile we crossed back and approached calefully, looked about for our game, but no deer were to be seen. Continuin2 ,n upward we reached an overhanginng cliff, when we saw our three deor emerging from the same gulch we bald so rapidly toiled up in order t, head fiau off. Foler ome reason thvey had crolled over, too, and had leisurely followed up in our footsteps. Brit they were pursuing a nours. that soon would bring theu within eah ra . Moving back fromi the edg, of the chli, we mede ourselves conlie1 table and a tited for them. Wher n they gat close we look positions where we could see, but not be seen, settled to whom the first shot hn longed, opt, eed fire, andti were fortunate enough to get them all.

The other two, now frozen stiff, were arranged as toboggans, their heads pointing down hill so that they would slide with the grain of the hair. Then sit ting astride and holding on to the fore legs, clown over the thick crust we flew. When the crust- was hard considerable speed :would be attained. Our duly fear was that our improvised toboggans would -and they often did-either break through a weak place in the crust or strike a pro jecting branch of some fallen, snow-cov ered pine; in either case we and our tobog gans instantly parted company and went rolling over and over. But our experiences were never unpleasant enough to deter us from taking this rough-and-readv method to get home quickly. Sometimes hauling, sometimes sliding, we at last arrived at camp, where the deer were hung up to lodge-poles. ThIen supper and an early bed. L. P. FRFEMONT. oieut. U. S. A. Copyright.

John Turk, Cascade, Montana, took 39 doses of a so-called "San Francisco Quack's Medicine," at once, and was not killed, as promised by lival doctors. In Septem ber, 1889, he called on Dr. A. C. Stoddart, visiting physician for Dr. Liebig & Co., Llebig World Dispensary, San Francisco and Butte City, who had offices for two weeks at the -Merchants Hotel, Helena. Mr. Turk hnd suffered for years with Rlhoumatism, Impurity of Blood and effects of mercu. ial Salivation. He had four of the best physicinns in Montana attend him, and they fniled to relieve him. Dr. Stod dai t examined him, sent his prescriptions to Liebig Dispensary, San Francisco, to be prepared. After Dr. Stoddart loft, Mr. Tark met the local doctors and told them what he had done. They laughed at him, and said "that San Francisco quank wnrmld kill him." He was so frightened that when the medicine from San Francisco came he put the bottle upon a shelf at his house, 707 Park st set, Helena, and it stood neg lected until December (nearly three months) while Mr. Turk suffered day and night, had not slept half an hour at a time in years. Being in great agony late in December, at midnight, his bye caught sight of the so-called "Quack's?" medi cine; ('rHe QUACK HAPPENS TO HAVE THE MONTANA MEDICTAL LICENSE AND Is A DULY QUATLIFIED PI'IYSICIAN AND SURlGEON FOR aMON TANA.) He, in desperation decided to kill himself with the "Quack's" medicine, as he was told by former attending doctors it would kill him, so he swallowed half a month's medicine at once-39 doses-and fell asleep. aler)t until noon next day, and never has had a pain or ache since.
