ise of becoming a bright scholar. '
--Arthur Sias set a force of men with
three or four teams to work Tuesday filling

of Charles Richards, carpenter and joiner,

-Fort Logan, owned by Judge Gaddis,
has recently been sold to Eastern parties
for $45,000. The property consists of four
square miles of land and the military and
sutlerbuildings. It is, we understand, to
be used for a horse ranch, a purpose to
which it is well adapted. Judge Gaddis
purchased it about two years ago from the
government for $4,500.
-Attention is direct to the advertisement
of Clark, Conrad & Curtin in another col
umn. This is the oldest haadware firm in
Montana, has ample capital, and carries an
immensely large stock. Our readers can
get any article in the hardware lie that
they may need. The proprietors are polite
atnd obliging, and have a wide notoriety for
being upright in their dealings.
-The ad vertisement of the Riverside Stock
Farm appears in our columns this week.
Messrs. Huntley & Clarke, the proprietors
of this farm, are probably Montana's most
extensive stock raisers, and possess one of
the best improved farms and finest bred
herd of horses. Persons needing young
stallions, filleys, mares or horses will do
well to make a visit to their farm on Crew
Creek valley. They will find a proprietors
excellent gentlemen to deal with and a
splendid opportunity to select good stock.
-A gentleman writing from eastern Mea
gher county adds the following postscript :
"There are some buffalo here, but they are
poor, having been run too much. Horse
thieves are plentiful. The halt-breeds re
port several hundred horses cached in a
canyon of a small stream near the mouth of
the Musselshell. There is no danger of tak
ing any of the thieves to the Springs if
caught. It won't pay, as we can make
shorter work of them. The Half-breeds are
still killing a few of our stock. The In.
dians are all north of the Missouri."
-We call attention to the advertisement
in another column of D. M. Ferry & Co.,
Detroit, Mich., the celebrated seedsmen
whose mammoth establishment is one of
the sights of the chief city of Michigan.
The house is entirely reliable, and it you
wish to get exactly what you order, send to
them for your seeds, ald you may depend
upon it you will get the best that the mar
ket supply. Their seeds have become
known over the entire civilized world for
purity and fertility, and have gained for
them an enviable reputation. Their Annu
al Seed Catalogue just issued for 1883, re
plete with information and beautifully illus
trated, will be sent free on application.
-At a meeting of the citizens of White
Sulphur Springs, Tuesday evening last, for
the purpose of considering the school ques
tion, it was ascertained there is only mon
ey enough in the treasury to continue the
present school until June. But as the pres
ent school was inadequate, there not being
room in the house, one and teacher not
being able to give them the proper atten
tion, after due deliberation the trustees con
cluded that it would be best to levy a spe
cial tax for the purpose of renting another
building and employing another teacher,
which will be submitted to the people. The
Good Templars' hall can be had at $15 per
month, and a teacher can be had at $70. In
order to have ample funds it is expedient to
levy about a 3-mill tax. Owing to the ur
gent demand for increased school facilities
we presume there is no doubt but the tax
will be voted.
-Every one we have met who was In at
tendance at the ball last Friday evening
pronounced it the most enjoyable affair ever
held at White Sulphur Springs. The large
hall, which was provided with seats all
around, afforded ample room for all, was
brilliantly lighted and well arranged for the
comfort and pleasure of those who did not
dance, as well as those who did. Thirty-six
couples on the floor at one time, all in a
jolly, rolicking mood, stepping to the ex
cellent time and music of the Neff Bros.,
was indeed a scene of rich enjoyment. The
large attendance of ladies and their elegant
attire was the occasion of many remarks.
The supper, a gift by Dr. Parberry, of the
White Sulphur Springs Hotel, was a most
excellent midnight repast, and added much
to the enjoyment of the occasion. There
were between fifty and sixty tickets sold,
the total netting about $100 to the Good
STOC KED FOR $80,000.
White Sulphur Springs Bought By a Company
and to Be.Made the Leeding Health
Resort of the West.
A company composed of Helena, Benton
and White Sulphur Springs capita!, has
purchased of Dr. Parberry, the White Sul
phur Springs, in Meagher county, together
with all improvements thereon, and all that
portion of White Sulphur Springs not deed
ed to osher parties. The purchase includes
nine acres of ground surrounding the
Spring, seven acres of ground on which the
Springs hotel is situated, and 1,000 town
The incorporators of the company are
Messrs. T. E. Collins, Aaron Hershfleld,
and Henry Sieben. The board of trustees
is composed of the three gentlemen named,
and Dr. Parberry, A. W. Sias, Robert Co
burn and Louis Heitman.
The property has been stocked for $80,
000, which is a ver reasonable figure, con
sidering its actual value. All the capital
stock has been already taken.
It is the purpose of the company to begin
making improvements at -3e. Next
spring a large hotel, containing at least
eighty rooms, will be built, and also a com
modious bathing establishment with all
modern improvements and conveniences.
We understand also that a strong eflort
will be made to Induce the Northern Pacific
to build a branch road to the Springs from
Livingston, which would only require about
sixty-five miles of road. A road might be
built across from Townsend, but a branch
from Livingston would be preferable on ac
count of that being the point to which all
tourists who travel to the National Park
will have to come. After visiting the great
Wonderland of America, there is no doubt
but nearly all tourists would naturally head
for the great health resort of the northwest,
especially when it could be reached by only
sixty-five miles of railroad travel.
The gentlemen who are interested in this
matter are among the best and most enter
prising of the citizens of Montana, and it
may be relied on that in the next few
months White Sulphur Springs will be one
of the liveliest towns in the Territory.-In
dependent. Dec. 27th.
This is gratifying news to us. We were
aware that the project was on foot, but did
not expect to see it consumated for some
time yet, Dr. Parberry as we have for some
time been aware preferred selling the prop
erty to undertaking its improvement single
handed. The sale associates with him some
of Montana's wealthiest and most enter
pri'ing citizens, and we may expect to see
them take hold of the property in earnest.
I'he time has arrived when its improvement
becomes a necessity. The town and coun
ty has far outstripred the present accom
modations and the place was bound to lose
favor with the public, notwithstanding its
superior health and pleasure advantages,
unless fixed up in prolper shape, which we
are glad to know is at length to be done.
The new corporation represents a capital
of $80,000, one-halt of which is to be invest
ed in improvements, the remainder going
for the purchase of the property. The
shares are valued at $100 each, and were
taken as tollows : T. E. Collins, 50; C. E.
Duer, 25; John Lepley, 100; Aaron Hersh
feld, 50; Henry Sieben, 100; T. J. Lowrey,
25; Robert Coburn, 100; Spencer, :Mavan &
Heitman, 100; Dunham & Maloney, 50;
A. W. Sins, 100. The rapid increase in the
value ot the Springs since the location of
the HUSBANDMAN here, ;is a :matter which
cannot pass unnoticed. The entire proper
ty was then offered at $10,000 without a
taker, and an increase at the rate of $10,000
a year does us proud, although none of the
profits are placed to our credit, and we feel
assured if the new company pushes Im
provement as proposed, the place will soon
become the Saratoga and healing asylum of
the West. Town property here has already
become active and commenced to increase
in value, and as much as two thousand dol
lars premium has been offered for 100 shares
in the company. A good feeling pervades
the entire community. The continued pros
perity of the place is assured, and a city of
5,000 inhabitants will spring into existence
in a few years.
