Thanksgiving is near at hand and will undoubtedly be more generally observed by everybody in Helena than ever before: We have a great many things to be thankful for, but perhaps noth ing that will demand such gen eral observance as our recent victory in the capital light. In order to justly celebrate nothing should be overlooked in the way of table delicacies. Certainly the turkey will play an important part with you and your friends gathered round the festive board. But another thing that we wish to remind you of and that you should not forget to provide for is the proper supply of Wines which will be needed to properly celebrate and whch will also add to the tone and increase the ap. preciation of everybody's hospi. tality. By giving us your order we can make this prt a most inexpensive addition. Prices speak for themselves, and highest grade of quality of goods every body acknowledges. TABLE WINES. At 7sc a gallon and upwards. DESSERT WINES. At $t.So a gallon and upwards, according to brand and vintage. PORT AND SHERRY. Domestiac and imported CHAMPAGNES. All brands and sizes of pack ages.

LOOK AFTER THE CAT The Last Messae of Robert Coulter Before He Made His ilit From This World. HE HAD LIVED THE LIFE OF A RECLUSE. When Tired of It Hi Went to Another Cabin and Killed Himself With a Rifle, Robert Coulter, who had been living the lift of a recluse for the past fiftern or Ilxtefn years on the head waters of Sun river, in l1wis and Clarke county, committed suicide the latter part of last week i)y sending a bullet from his own rifle through his body. Coulter wrote two notes, one stating that he would be back in a few days and not to worry about him; and the other asking some kind person to take the money in his pocketbook and take care of his cat. These he left in his cabin. Rolling up him bedding, he car ried it to another cabin about a quarter of a mile distant. There he made his bed on the floor, and perfected the ar rangements for his exit from this world. Driving a wire nail Into the end of a stick about three and a half feet long was part of the arrangement. He loaded hie rifle, lay down on his bed ding, and Imbedded the stock of the weapon, already cocked, in the ground. He placed the nail against the trigler, gave a slight push and ended his life. Coulter was an ex-union soldier, but what state he hailed from or what regi ment he served in is not known, as he kept very much to himself and rarely talked with any one. Justice T. 0. Woods, of Augusta, held an inquest. The jury brought In a ver dict of sulclde while temporarily In sane. NEW H1ADQOUARTE... Those of the Tenth Cavalry Changed From Custer to Aainabolne. Col. J. K.

Their passenger, sleeping and dining cars are vestibuled.

Its roadbed is rook ballast, and It has no sand deserts along its line. It Is free from dust. TMN QGlAT FWDeT. Subje PtiIg ~l m it to C oissuwed at St. Leis.

It was found on the 106 foot level, about ninety feet west of the shaft. It is fifteen Inches wide, solid ore, and has an assay value of over 500 ounces of sliver to the ton. The Little Alma Is one of the claims belonging to the Alma and Virginia oonsoldated com pany, of which Dr. T. H. Pleasants Is president and Dr. Wm. Treecy, secre tary and treasurer. All the claims in Lump Oulch which showed at all promising neat the sur face, and on which any considerable development has been done, have turned out handsomely, and there is scarcely any doubt but what the district will de velop some wonderfully rich mines in the near future. The Little Alma is certainly testined to become one of the record breakers, from present indications.
