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
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
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

is a member of the Montana Steam Naviga- (
tion Company, a company organized to op
crate on the Missouri river above the great

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.
