Work at the millsite is making good
progress, though the hard nature of the
country rock makes progress a little slbw
at times. About 175 men are now em
ployed and it is expected that a number
more will be put to work soon. The rail
road right-of-way has not been definitely
settled for the entire distance yet. In
one case the 'ontractors, foremen and
each and every one of the workmen were
arrested as trespassers. This case was
carried to Deer Lodge after having been
tried in the justice's court here. It is to
be hoped that matters can be brought to
some sort of an amiable understanding
so that progress on the mill can be con
tinued and the railroad branch com
pleted. The rails are already laid a dis
tance of three miles from Philipsburg,
and trains are now running to the end of
the track with lumber and other sup
plies necessary in extending the branch.
The new hoisting-works at the mine
are being pushed ahead with great en
ergy, and will probably be completed in
about twenty days. They will soon em
ploy as many men as before the fire, and
expect to resume operations and take
out ore in about six weeks. The big
pump at the 500-foot level will be
reached this week.
Work at the new millsite is going
ahead with great rapidity. The water

Reports from this property continue

is going on as usual, and the indications
are as favorable as could be desired
The new pump works to perfection, and
all work is being done to good advantage.
They expect to strike the vein in the
early part of September. Mr. Gable
went out to the mine yesterday morning.
The annual meeting of the company
will be held at the office in Philipsburg,

for the purpose of electing nine trustees
for the ensuing year.
Reports from this mine are favorable
as ever, work going ahead with good re

and are now down 110 feet. The ore at
present is not htugh gra e, but as soon as
the crosscut is made to the main vein it
will probably develop rapidly.

SWhen a lady begins to dream dreams
g and see visions, look out for her, for
,r there is no knowing what she will do. I
know a young lady who is troubled with
a husband and a year-old baby, with
a curly, golden hair. The other night she
had a dream. She dreamt that she was
dressing before the looking glass in the
back parlor. Looking into the front
e parlor through the folding doors she tbe
held her husband in much too earnest
conversation with two young ladies. One
of the young ladies seemed greatly in
terested in what he was saying and their
, chairs gradually drew closer and closer
together till it came to pass that the
watcher on the other side of the folding
doors observed her husband's arm steal
round the waist of the young lady.
This was more than the indignant wife
.e iEold stand, and she crept quietly behind
I me preoccupied couple and aimed a slap
e at the girl which would probably have
lifted her head from her shoulders. So
powerful was it that it knocked the
whole scene completely out. The
dreamer awoke, and so did her husband,
3 and likewise the baby. The gas was
i turned up and revealed a very surprised
looking group. The baby was the most
surprised of all The slap intended for
the dreamer's rival had alighted full on
I the curly, golden head of her son.

Hon. T J. Demers of Frenchtown was
in the city on Thursday. A few days ago
in company with a quartz expert, Mr.
Demers made a trip into the mountains
east and north of Flathead lake. to ex
amine some quartz locations in that sec
tion, and investigate the deposits of coal
in that region. They succeeded in find
ing some very rich galena ore, and also
found some strong veins of coal. Mr.
Demers is of the opinion that the deposits
of galena ore and rich beds of coal will
justify the building of a branch road from
some point on the NorthernPacific to this
rich but undeveloped country in a short
time. In addition to being a a country
rich in mineral and coal,the country at the
head of the lake is one of the richest and
most extensive agricultural regions iu
