The con ventitinalitiett of life, the mere huks of WK-ial funiiK ha.l lieen pretty well i.!icarl eil, an.l the ieople in the mining camps hal come down to plain burties. The j averajre preacher in the even of the aver- : ae miner was a man whose businessi was to piss arouiiti the hat or the contribu tion box, if there had lnt-ii one in the country, inul who made his sermons tint pretext. The jjoo.1 Bishop initrlit well have lieen appalled at the first view of his diocese. But never was a man better fitted by na ture an.l by grace for his high mission. Of hemic stature, in every physical sense a man amon; men, he had a heart for every fate and a courage and resolution eijual to any demand. The city of Helena was the metropolis of the northern mountains. One winter morning!, soon after midnight, tiro broke out among some shanties in the upper end of tin- nni. ii. Tin- mount. tins were white willi snow ; a sinsll rivulet which meandered amonthe ricks was lucked in ! ice, while a biting blast blew down from the ti i. oi 1 1 1 1 : lit ;in I. sweeping thr iiisrh the j tforge. S HUi tanned the fire into a contla- j gr.iti.in , men rushed to the scene ith j buckets and blankets. Then- vas no fire ', briiride and no other apparatus for fi-jht- : in the flames.

The men on the roof inut brave tire, .smoke, and freezing w ind. To falh-r was ileft-at ; to retreat w as rain. There w as no faltex iiij; in that desperate truj;i;le, and finally the battle was won. Morning had come, and with it the Mill, w hich, as it rose over a shoulder tif .he mountain gilded the forms of three men who stood hiyh on the p;ii;is''. of the btiildiim where the lire hail lcen I stopped. They were the chief's, self chosen, to lead in the conflict, hut ac knowledged and obeyed by the jxipulacv, who instinctively recoyuize their suprem acy. These three men, with their visag es grimmcd and black w ith smoke, their hair and Is-ar.ls singed, their hands torn and bloody, their hat.i blown away by tin w in.

They were well know n in the mountain.-, if not imuiedi aU'ly recognized in the disfigurement of battle. The one on the right was " Hi ter liisit l.ill," otherwine .Mr. William lUin kerly, a noted desperado, who got his cognomen from a daring adventure with the Indians in the Bitter I'oot Moiin tains.
