On Improved Farms and City Property, AT REASONABLE RATES OP INTEREST. ASTEELE & CLEMENTS RELIABLE AND PROMPT. Platt & Heath, Real Estate, Insurance and Louas on Improved Property. One of the best known real estate firms in Helena is that of Platt & Heath, who have offices at OX and 7 Thompson block. The members of the firm are distinguished for their business capacity and integrity and affairs placed in their hands for man agement are sure to receive skilful atten tion and constant care. People who have residence property to rent have placed it in the hands of this firm to such an extent that they hays become known as doing the largest rental business in the state. Hun dreds of property owners are to-day de pendent upon this watchful firm for the care of their interests. Their business in this line has grown steadily from its incep tion and necessarily shows the great conti deaqn reposed in them. In addition to this they have secured the management of other interests mainly through the excellent rep utation achieved in the rental business, which has done wonders to make them known. Almost any kind of property will be managed by them and on such terms as will sause a man to wonder why he ever burdened himself with its care when he could have had it done so well by another. Platt & Heath also make a specialty of placing insurance with the best foreign and home companies. In the real estate busi ness proper they are prepared to undertake the purchase or sale of any class of prop erty in the state. They have made numer ous sales of choice ranch property and have several desirable farms on hand which may be purchased on very favoratle terms. Their dealings in and knowledge of city property is extensive and enables them to take advantage of every turn in the market for their customers. 'They have a list of improved inside property which they are always ready and willing to show at a moment's notice. Loans are also made in sems to suit upon improved ranch and in side property. This latter class of business is one to which the firm pays a great deal of attention. There are no long waits and a harrassing lot of details. Everything in connection with it is executed promptly and with satisfaction, and at all times re ceives the personal inspection of one of the members of the firm. It is this that has made the firm known for its reliability. LEADING MUSIC HOUSES. The Places Where Montanlans Buy Their Instruments and sheet Musle. Jackson's music houses in Helena and Great Falls are known from one end of Montana to the other. It is a common ex pression in the state to hear one say "I bought it at Jackson's"-which indicates how well known are these two leading es tablishments to the people of Montana. Their fame extends beyond the borders of the state, and many articles from Jack son's may be seen in Wyoming and Idaho homes. The palrent house started in Helena some years ago in a small and uprotentions store on Broadway. It grew rapidly under skillful and julicious management, and now has commodious quarters in one of the finest business blocks on Main street-the Bailey. The Great Falls branch is equally well housed, although it does not carry the great stock of the parent house. European and eastern tourists passing through Helena on their way from the National park to the coast have often showered compliments upon the Helena house and made purchases solely noas tstimonials to western enterprise. In the piano line these houses have instruments of the well known Chiekering & Sons manufacture, the old and reliable, and "Htandly," the Behr Bros. & Co., J. & C. Fischer, Decker Broe., Chase Bros. New England, Blasins, and Pease. Instruments which excell in power and strength of tone are the Story & Clark or gans, which are constantly kept in stock. Another well known make is the Chicago cottage, which have found sole by the thousands. The houses are also agents for the celebrated vocalion, an instrument of .ingular beauty of tone and a great favor ite with many. They are also sole agents for the Gatcombbanjos, Washburn guitars, and for the celebrated Russia gut Straton strings. The largest stock of sheet music west of Chicano is carried by the Helena and Great Falls houses, including the fa mous Carl Fischer band and orchestra musie. IJ short, everything in the musical line can be found either in the parent house or the one at Great Falls. The services of Mr. H. H. Nay, a graduate of the Boston conservatory of music and lately of Chick eriug & lons factoy, have been secured as tuner. He has not his equal in the north west. O. W. Jackson, the popular alderman from the Second ward. who has made his mirk as a tenor in amateur operatic per rormances, is the manager of the Helena holsec. The G eat Falls branch is under the direction of G. W. Jackson. WELLS CONSERVATORY. The I'lonser and Leading Establishment of Its Kind in Montana. This old and well known conservatory has been established iq Helena for years and does business in all parts of the state. It is the largest in Helena and is stocked with rare plants and flowers of all varieties. During the past season all the floral deco rations used at the Hotel Broadwater were furnished by the Wells conservatory. Some magnificent displays of cut flowers and potted plants were seen at receptions given recently at the residences of Mrs. N. W. McConnell, Mrs. Peter Larson and Mrs. E. C. Babcook. The arrangement of the floral decorations wits designed by the conserva tory florists. At all the largesociety events throughout the state flowers and plants from this conoe vatory are to be seen. The conselrvatory furnishes florwers for evening parties and does the decorating necesary and makes a speotalty of funeral and wed ding designs. Plants of all kinds can be secured at nominal rates for nese at recep tous, parties, balls, etc. Deliveries are made to all parts of the city. The conserv atory, just east of ltodney street and south of Broadway, sovers a large apace of ground and is one of the best equipped plants of its kind in the no thwest. Under its hundreds of square feet of glass roof there is an ever bloomning Earden, filled with nature's choicest perfume, studded her and there with large and stately palmi and other tronical growth, made brilliant and pleas ing to the eye by the many colored flowers sunch as the roses, la France Mermeets and LIride's pearl de Jandiary, with smilax in ropes from twelve to fifteen feet in length. SChbrysanthemums are on all sides. One of the eights or tihe conservatory, thouglh not exactly In the floral line, is a tomato weigh aing one and a half pounds called the P'on darosa, which was raised by Mrs. Wells. It is only snr passed Iy some four pound tormatoes riinsed by Peter Henderson, of Jersey Heights. Visitors to Iielena are cordially invited to call and inspect the conservatory. It is one of the institutions of which Helena is proud and has always fostered by its patronage since the coaserv atory started in business. Many of the private conservatories it the state have ob tained their beginning from this instituo tion which may be aptly termed the parent house of the mall. WALL PAPEIR II,'CORATIONS. lelena Has a Place Where the Most Fas tidlous slay Be Sliteld. Cloth and tapestry were until about the beginning of the sevensteenth centaury, the only artloles used in the decoration of interior walls. Wall paper was theu un known in Europe, though its ouse by the (Chinese and Japanese has been established to a ertatnly. Ihe first manufactured wras at Rouen In 1679, From then until 175lr n attempts to make this ,useful article were 01 eontinued at Rouon, though it can scarcely be called an industry. It was not until A about 1780 that the use of wall paper be- fI came popular in France, when the people h began to substitute it for woven tapestry as a decoration. At this period ltevillon b' established at Rouen the first wall paper ci manufactory, and are long its product be- a came noted for their utility and beauty. The P first wall paper used in Amerilo was at u Mount Vernon, the home of Washington. SI The paper was imported from France espes ealIly for the Washington home, and was ti hung under the personal supervision of the a father of his country. The first factory r for making wall paper in this country was established in 1789 on Chestnut street, f4 Philadelphia. Prior to 1885 all hangings were made by hand in square sheets. In iI that yeare a machine was Invented to print d in one color. In 1839 this machine was im proved, allowing the use of four colors. From then on the wall paper in dustry has grown wonderfully, until the A yearly production of the mills of this country is now over 120,000,000 rolls. Some of the patterns of wall paper turned out by the factories of to-day are exceedingly a handsome. There are designs to suit all tastes, and many of them rival frescoing. i At no place can a more varied or a more beautiful assortment of wall papers be c found than at the estatlishment.of Charles a Grossman, in the Kleinschmidt block, Hixth I avenue and Warren street. Mr. Grossman F i carries a full line of wall paper and mould- E ings for interior decoration, besides manu factoring picture frames of all descrip tions. The proprietor gives his personal attention to the work and assures his t patrons of first-class workmanship. Those t contemplating renewing the interior decor l ations of their homes would do well to call i I and look over his stock before deciding on what they want in that line. PIONEER ASSAY OFFICE. One of the Most Reliable Concerns of the Kind in Montana. I The Pioneer Assay office, 24 Edward K street, of which Fred J. Thomas is the p o prietor, is not only one of the oldest con corns of the kind in the city, but also in the state. This is the only manufacturing es tablishment in Helena where rubber stamps are made to order, and on very shortnotice. A notarial, corporate or lodge seal made with a solid metal base for $3.50. It is a known fact that the Pioneer Assay office is the only place in the state where seals with metal bases are made. Itubber type and rubber dates, and rubber stamps are made nowhereelse in Helena. It is such a saving of I time and labor to have a rubber stamp to a drop on recespts and other vouchers. In this busy age one has not the time to spend writing out a set formula for hundreds of bills and other documents, let alone the labor Involved in such a proceeding. He has the set formula rednoed to the shape of o a rubber stamp, with, if necessary, adjusta a ble dates. Instead of writing it all huu dreds of times, he sets the machine over the paper, presses the handle, and the d stamp does the rest. As every man has his e own ideas as to how he would like his e stamp to look, there is no way for him to 7 get what everybody else hasn't got except e to have it made to order. Nowhere else n in Helena can he do this but at h the l'ioneer Assay Office. Unless it is i a more than usually difficult job the d chances are he will have it within twenty d four hours after he leaves his order. But 0 the assay work of this well known and reli e able concern must not be overlooked. It is n second to none in the state, or for that d matter, in the United Statee. Fully r equipped with all that is needed, the pro prietor can make an assay that will tell the d mine owner or the prospector just what he has in sight. This is about the season when the prospectors begin to come in from the hills with samples of what they * have found. Their first thought is to hunt o up an assayer and find out what they have a struck. The Pioneer assay offioe is the r place to go. HELENA. EMPLOYMENT AGENCY. A Place to Secure Situations and All Kinds c or Help. a One of the most difficult things encoun tered all over the world is to find the de sirable kind of help without going to great 1e trouble. The Helena Employment agency. if which is conducted by W. B. Cook, at 24 n Edwards street, is designed to do away with all trouble and worry over such matters as procuring suitable help; and not only that but getting situations for those who wish n service. Applicants are made constantly to La the agency for positions as cooks, house maids, etc., in private residences, boarding n houses, hotels, restaurants, or for places iun ramps or on ranches. A record is made of the names, addresses, class of work, wages desired and other details. Next comes the housekeeper who wants a cook or a chambermaid or a nurse; or the ranch at man who wants a cook or a few harvest hands, or the railroad contractor or wood dealer who wants men to work for him. A They tell the employment agent what class of help they want and how many of each. It The agency books are referred to and thei e h are found among the list of applicants for s places the names of those who are just suited to fill the bill. It is all very simple; it is, in fact, a labor saving device. John re mith wants a place as camp cook. Wil s liram Brown is a railroad contractor d who wants a cook for his camp. n Instead of going chasing around 1. all over creation, each looking for what the o. ther has to give, they go to the employ ii ment agent, and everybody is suited. t- Oftentimes the person who goes to the 1 agency to look for work finds some one has is already applied for just such help, while se those who go to seek help find some one Iregistered who wants Just such a place. y Besides attending to the matter of securing - help for some and plescrs for others, the ie Helena emplopmeont agency makes a busi - ness of renting houses for those who have e not the time to look after their property. r- seeing to the securing of good and prompt h tenants, the collection of rents, eto. The eo agency has a high reputation for fair deal tuing with all its customers that is second d to none. Those desiring help and those if wishing places should give this old estab r lished coneern a call. ZEI PHYRS RAMPANT. - And One Must Now Take Thought for la Ils Whiskers.

IB BROADWVA Y GIIOCEIY CO. It A Young lInnse Which leas Doubled Its Trade Within Two Years. One would hardly think a grocery house si inch as that of the Broadway Grocery com- ti pany's in the Wood's block, located but r a short distance from Main street, could sue t lessfully compete with the grocery houses of i that thoroughfare. This house has and Is c doing that very thing however. The pro prietors, James and John Walker, are k aen, brighs and wide awake men who have made business by their progressive methods. which are characte, ized by honesty coupled with a system of dealing for oash only at the lowest margins. This is what has tut them to the front and enlarged their bust ness territory. It is perhaps the only hdone in Helena which has doubled its trade within the past two years, avery signifioant fact, and one which tells concisely the whole story. The firm deal in general gro ceries and have the choicest and freshest goods because their sales are quick and nothing has time to get old. Everything that the housewife can think of or desire is to be had, and of the beet quality. When you hear custom ers say they never have gotten a bad article ( from this house you know that they are paying the highest compliment that can be given a grocery house. The constant per sonal attention and care given to business by the Walker B os. eliminate as far as huboMn skill can any possible chance of getting anything bad. Among the special ties of the house are such fine coffees as Chase & Sudborn's Java and Mocha, always - prime favorites, and the finest lines of hams and breakfast bacon. A case of eastern canned goods, new sea- t son, has just been added to the stock which c also includes all tnoe latest lines and brands t in fancy groceries.

This is the time of year when the ladics begin to look around for heavier garments for themselves and the little ones. There is nothing so healthy as being comfortably and seasonably clad. Butcher & Bradley, at 105 Broadway, offer inducements to in tending purchasers that it would pay them toconsider before !a ing in their winter supply of clothing, etc. The house deals particularly in fancy goods, and in that line has a reputation second to none in the west. A full line of ladies' and children's furnishing goods is carl led at all times, and those having need for such can be suited, no matter what the taste of the purchaser may be. Infants' outfits especially underwear, are carried in large and complete stock. Mothers will doubt less find it a saving of time, as well as trouble, to purchase such articles ready made, especially when they can be assured that there ii a place in town where they can get the worth of their money. Such a ilace is Butcher & B adley's. The fi m makes it an object to procure things which tihey alone sell. Such articles are kept on hand, not for the purpose of taking ad vantage of anything like a corner in any garments of a particular style, but as an assurance to the public that they get just the goods they pay for. 'Ihe fact that Butcher & Bradley's is the place is the only assurance needed. 'I he prices are always low at this well-known house. 'lhey are satisfied to make a reason able profit on what they sell, and let their patrons Let the full benefit of the low prices. A large line of hand tinted table, stand and pillow covers has just been received. It is the only lot of the kind in town.

The house is agent for the cele brated Jackson corset waist, Dr. Warner's corsets, and Jenness Miller patterns. In making purchases tile people bear in mind: first, economy; second, quality. Both of these important considerations are what make the people select Butcher & Bradley's when they want anything in the line that can be bought the e. The house has been established for a long time, and its reputa tion for fair dealing and low prices stands unquestioned. ONLY THE BEST IN STOCK. Helena's Leadilng Establshlment in the Lile of Footwiear. There is one mercantile establishment that has always kept In the front rank in Helena, and that is the boot and shoe house of Fred Gamner at 17 South Main street. It is to-day the oldest house in its line in the city, and now as in its early days, it has the reputaltiou of selling only the best goods.

I'rof. Iteilebacli has direst oharge of the bookkeeping, commercial law commercial arithmetto and business trio. ties departments, and this is a unaranteo that the instructions in those departments are thorough. Prof. Frank. T. Weaver, (late of the National Pen Art hall, Itles ware, ONlio), the beet penman in Montana, is at the head of the penmanship, cor respondence and rapid enlculation depart ments. Prof. Edward IE'. Lawson teaches grammar and the English branches, Prof. M. H, Murphy, a practical stenographer, with years of experience, is at the head of tho shorthand arid typewriting depart mrents, and Mrs. E. O. IIltlsrback teaches algebra, arithroetio and the English branches, No business college anywhere has a stronger corps of instractors, and but few san equal it, certainly none in Montana. Mo high do the graduates of the Montana luasiness college stand in tie estinaltion of the business men of the city and state, that they are found holding responsible and lucrative positions all over Montana. Graduates are not guaranteed vositions, hut a diploma from this college is a rec ommendation that goes a long way toward securing one. 'The design of the urllige is to impart such instruction to mnn and wo men and boys and girls as will tit them to fill useful and remunerative positions, and thus become independent.

Everyone is made to leel at home, and those who have had but limited school opportunities are prepared in a little while to take up one of the regular courses. There are no vacations at the Mon tana Business college and students may enter at any time. For those who attend the college from out of town when it is desired pleasant homes are se cured at such rates as the pupils themselves may feel able to pay. The college is very pleasantly situated in the Electric block. on the corner of Sixth and Park avenues, on high ground and commands a beautiful view of the city and valley. The class rooms are large, well lighted and ventilated and there are ample accommodations for 100 pupils. The various courses of study are most complete. In the commercial, under the direct supervision of Prof. Railsback, the object always kept in view is the prepara tion of the pupils for the actual duties of a business life, and the studies are therefore of the most practical kind, emb acing book keeping, commercial law, business arith-. metic, rapid calculations, spelling, corre spondence, grammar, penmanship and business practice. After a student becomes familiar with the simpler methods of book keeping he is thoroughly drilled in the most complicated forms, fitting him or her to take care of any set of books. In the commer cial law department, a very important one, the topioc treated are coot acts, negotiable paper, sales of pe soiacl property and real estate, agency. ,artnership, corpora tions, liens and otners. Lectures on these subjects are given from time to time during the sessions by prominent local attorneys. In the commercial arithmetic coulse atten tion is given to rapid and accurate compu tation, and the course embraces a thorough study of all commercial topics, such as irofit and loss, trade and bank discount, markiug goods, interest, averaging ac counts, partnlership, and everything per taiming to commercial eilculations. In the correspondence ,urse t le p ipils are drill 'd in letter writlllo, drawingW notes, draiti. tand in all the o:dinary iorims used in business. The plrnmnlship courar' is given the at tention its importance deserves in a practi cal educational institution.

No man or woman is to-day equipped for office work unless able to write shorthand and use a typewriting machine expedi tiously. In the Montana Business college instruction in both these branches is thor ough. The Bonn Pittman system of short is hand taught by Prof. Murphy, a practical and exterienced instructor, Grammar and the common E',nglish branches, as well re algebra, are also given their due prominence in the course of instruction. Oct. 3 the night school was oplened, and it will continue for six mouths. The sessions are held Monday.
