A MAN WIIO DIDN'T ADVERTISE.-There was a great excitement in Chebanse the otlh er day over the unexpected appearance of a man who had been absent from his home for fifteen years. (Hle had been keeping a ,tore all this time on the principal street, but no one knew it. lie had been mourned as dead). WYE published a statement recently that Messrs. Ford & Potter, of Smith river, sold their wool in Boston for 33 cents per pound. More recent advices from their consigners, make the following showing : Best grade, (about one-third of their lot) 35 cents pcer pound; second grade, 33 cents ; third grade, 30 cents.

ScAtR1Z1T fever h:s lad(1 quite a run for sev eral weeks past in D)eep creek neigihborhood, Missouri valley. Quite a numncr of children have been efl'ceted and two deaths have oc curred, blut the disease seenms to have sub sided. All the old ceases are about well and no new ones reported. Dr. Finch was sum i0olloed to the ineighborhoodl the first of last week n11(1 remained several days. IHe re ports the COses as onv\'alescing. A COIRESPONDENT writing from Butte, under date of Jan. 10. says: Professor Smith's arastra is now working about 1.300 pounds of ore dl:ly. Olin starts his concentrator this week. The Bule t fondry is doing excellent work in furnishing the mills whith castings. (Young & IRouldebush expect to start their mill the conming week. IIay is selling for $10 in the valley, and $20 delivered in town. Prof. IHartwell opened his dancing school last evening, with a large attendance. OUR friend Ile Ilarrington has taken the contract for carrying the mail from D)ii mnond to W\hite's gullchl. The distance is about four mniles across tile hills, and litteen miles aroundl. Mr. II. prefers the shortest way. though it is very steep and travel is rendered slow and tedious by drifts of snow. We understand lie will also carry express matter for live cents per pound, provided the package weighs not over 500 pounds., as the journey nust be made on foot. Passeii gers who are not too proud to accept the ac commlodations of"' Walker's line," taken at half price. A FRIEND writing Ifrom Philllipsburg, says: There was quite an accident on the 3d at the North West Co's. mine. A drill fell from the top. 200 feet to the bottom of the shaft, striking Mr. Win. Mclntire a glancing lick on the small of the hack, intlicling a severe wound along the back bone, but for tunately, it is not fatal. The two other men ii, the shaft were iot injured. On the samne day there was an ccident at the hope mine. Mr. RIobert Williams, who was standing on a chute that had been built, of wash-dirt and rock-the timbers gave way, letting him down and covering himi up so completely. that it took five hours' work to dig him out. IHe was alive when taken out, and is recovering. '1T'HE last mail brought uS a eOrrespond ence from lower Smith river valley, dated Dec. 2G, 187G. This proves the isolation of this prospl)erous section. Twenty-two days for a letter to reach the county seat, a dis t:nce of only 75 miles, should certainly be at matter of concern to every one desirous of having our frontier settle up. Last winter we forwarded to our Delegate in Congress a petition signed by over fifty names of the best citizens of the county, praying that a ma1l route he established between Camp Baker and Fort Shaw,. running directly through this valley. but have never been in formed as to its fate. Oilither mail routes of less importance have been established in different parts of the Territory, and in one instance, there are two lines upon the same road. Still these people must be content with facilities which require twenty-two days for their letters to reach the county seat. IIow long must they endure this state of affairs? how long will our Delegate ignore the claims of these people. SUNDAY morling last, the mercury stood above zero. Twenty-four hours later it had descended to 18 0 below ; a sudden change of 4S o, but happily fio our climate, these freaks of weather have no had eftict upon our people, and are never followed by those results ciu mllmon to other coluntries. A cl:hange of tIii kind in the States would be I attended with colds, coughs, croup), and general cnp/laii:nipg. The people would go abouit siVerini and he'ir teeth clhatterinlg, as thouglh every drop oit blood in their veins I \aWs e'oh gealel. The children would have Ii tl eir heads Ihunled up. a:id half of them would be so hoarse that. they could scarcely ,speak ablove a whispier. lHere how dillIbr- ent. The childhren were frolicking and play ini g upqn tihe streets jus;t as thiougth no change had occurred ; no shiverin.g aiid ehattering of teetlh, sieezing or cou.hiing,. but their sweet, clear voices rang out on the e pure muiorninr air as merrily as in June. WE] take the liberty of publishinjg the fol lowing extract from a private letter received this week front a personal friend and prom inent tax-payer of lower Smith river, on the subject of the estahlishlment of : new dis triclt lport.ionnment of money, etc.: S\VWe are sorry that our petition did not reach the counity seat sooner, so that there would be no doulbt in regard to the appor tionmuent of some of the school money for our b)eeitit. We know that in justice we are entitled to some of the money, for we pay into the school fund some five or six hundred dollars, in taxes, and if the Super intendent should strain the law a little on the side of justice, there would be no blame attached to lain by any onle. We have fif teen childred between the ages of four aid twenty-one, and others on the way as fast as timner will let themn go. As soon as the district is organized we shall go to work and ibuild a school-house immediately. Whatever the School Superintendent can do for us will be thankfully received, and we shall do what we can to help oursel es. t We have entergetic men andI women here, and are bound to have as good a school as there is ill the county.
