Our best wishes attend them. Henry McDonald, of Smith river, and Wm, Martin, of the Muscleshell, have de ci(ted to move their flocks to Arrow creek. the place selected is 10 miles south of .the Meagher county line, and 30 miles from Benton. Chas. Seibrechlt met w\vitl a severe acci dent a fetw days since while engaged in tak ing down a whim back of town. One of the poles which was being used as a derick broke and struck hint on the head, knock ing him inasensible for some minutes. The denlm.llt for li1e in consequence [ . L the large amount of building going on on i Smith river, has induced John Piser to enter into the business. The limetsone on Newlan I creek, makes an excellent quality of limne, Mr. wiser will have a kiln burned and ready º for market in a short time. G. S. Lewis, the enterprising proprietor of the Union Mills of Gallatin county, has loaded a train with flour to supply the. Smith river and Musclesheil valleys. This flour will be stored at P. H. Clark's, near the White Sulphur Springs, where the set tlers can obtain it at the lowTst market price. The road down the gulch has been comn pleted from the mouth of boulder. The con tract was let at $100. There is yet $25 to raise to pay for the work. There is yet a number of freighters and farmers who are greatly interested' in the road who are be hind with their donations. but it is hoped they will come forward promptly, as the road is of great value to all who have busi ness in Diamond:. Marks, Patterson & Co.'s steam thresher t, is a complete success, and has a capacity of o 3,000 bushels per day. It requires only one u cord of wood to 2,000 bushels. tl We notice that Jonas Higgins of this place is a member of the Montana Steam Naviga- ( tion Company, a company organized to op crate on the Missouri river above the great falls. Geo. Patterson, late of Baltimore, who t spent the lambing season with Cook Bros., has purchiased 3,000 head of sheep and moved to Ilighwood, Meagher county. The. following instance of canine intelli gence is seldom excelled. One day last week one of Len Lewis shepard dogs arriv ed amt his homne direct from his flock, five or six miles distant, with a note from the herd er, requesting Mr. Lewis presence at once. Farmers, stock growers and dairymen de sirous of unproving their herds, are reterred to the breeders' card of Sedman c& Mc Gregor, of Madison county. These gentle men are among the oldest and most exten sive Short-horn breeders in Montana, and their stock is first-class. They have given the matter much attention ; have two dis tinct fimuilies, one bred especially to milk, the other to beef. Both of these families stand unquestionably high among breeders of this country. For pedigrees and partic ulars, address them at Adobetown. The good people of L)iannoni1 nave re- d sponded nobly to the appeal for aid, to the yellow fever sufferers of the South. T. E. F Collins forwarded $182.50 yesterday, of this , $35.50 is from Smith river, and wa:s con tributed as follows : Len Lewis, $10; Cook Bros., $10 ; John Moore, $10 ; Morgan and Saver, $5. The fifty cents was given by a little orphan girl, whose name we do not remember. The remainder was from D1ia mond, and is more than $1.50 per capita-.to every man, woman ,and1 chill in town. Oth er portions of the county will yet respond.
