Andre should extend his visit to Judith Gap and imbibe a little of our "treeless squir rel," or "sheepherder's delight," dur ing which pastime lie could invent several new steps that would set Paris crazy.

He purchased a quarter section a mile south of the business street for *!.-> an acre. He has repeatedly refused to sell this land for double the price he paid for it, and Judge Neelen is a taxpayer in Meagher county. We are glad the judge soaked tlie Poloelt. Dear me.
