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

LOOK AFTER THE CAT
The Last Messae of Robert Coulter Before
He Made His ilit From This
HE HAD LIVED THE LIFE OF A RECLUSE.
When Tired of It Hi Went to Another Cabin
and Killed Himself With a
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.

Made in the Little Alma Mine in the Lump
Another rich ore body has Just been
discovered In the Little Alma mine, in
Lump Gulch. 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.

At a joint meeting of Washington and
Monroe councils of the A. O. H. P., held
last Thursday evening, it was voted to
give tour free literary and sociable en
tertainments, on four successive Friday
evenings: Nov. 20, Dec. 7, 14, and I1, at
Hanford & Evans .hall. At each enter
tainment vocal and instrumental music
and recitations, accompanied by ad
dresses by prominent members of the
order, will be presented, and each will
conclude with dancing. Admission will
be by tickets only, and they may be ob
tained of members of either council after
Thursday, Nov. 32. It Is the intention
of the managers of this local order to
push its claims for recognition vigor
ously, and as it is the only fraternal
beneficiary society having its national
headquarters in this city or state, the
people manifest a disposition to foster
and encourage it. The A. O. H. P. is
now over sixteen months old, and has
had but two deaths among its female
members, and none of its male members
have died during its existence; a re
arkable record for that lensth of time,
asd showing the care eterolsed in the
a0isslon of members.
