To the Editor of the Pilling# Herald:
It is well known by your rcadm that
the construction train has lor some iui,
days past been stationary at this point,
about one mile east of the bridge across J
the Yellowstone at Billings. Ever since
our arrival here l hud promised myselt
the pleasure of a trip to the hills and
plateaus lying south of us, aud I have also
promised you an account ot onr wonder

done hecsteak, we accoutred ourselves for
the journey. Said accoutrements consisted
of a few provisons sufficient, for the day,
some cigars, and remembering the pres
ence of rattlesnakes, prudently provided
ourselves with the proper antidote in ease
v.e should be snake bitten. We al-o took
our rifles revolvers and field glass. The
party consisted of a Iviend ot nuno lYom
the Fast, and my humhie self. Starting
lYuin the train we took a southerly diree

landscape. Away to the north and west !

fine that it needs hut the addition of a

But we could not remain enraptured tho'.

must away to the south and extend our
observations. A gallop of two hours over
foot hills and through small canyons car
ried us about ten miles into tue interior,
and being strangers and hut slightly versed
in geography, conjectured that were near
ing the confines of the Yellowstone Park.
This erroneous impression was in our minds
confirmed by the appearance at this mo
ment at a point about a mile eastward of
two horsemen, leisurely cantering in our
direction. We had been informed that
Gen. Sheridan and the senator from Ore
gan were cn route to the Park, and con
cluding that the ilustrious individuals
were before us, we hurried along to join
them. Imagine our chagrin on approach

and senator, the half-breed son-in-law of
