End of Track, M. T., )
Sept. 12th, 1882. J
To the Editor of the Billings Herald:
The track was laid through Fark City
this morning, and we are moving along
nicely. A few able-bodied men can find
employment here on the track laying outfit
gang...... H. H. Hollidge, resident engineer
on the east end of Rocky Mountain divi
sion, came down to sec us on Saturday,
and also to take his mother from Billings
to Bozeman. He left here for Rozcnian at
noon to-day......On the 4th inst. a man
named Ous Uhlman, was found iD a pile of
ties about 12 miles west of here. He was
delirious and refused to talk. The physi
cian from end of track visited him and
found him delirious with typhoid fever,
and bad him removed to Park City. A
collect'*« 1 started by the railroad boys for
the benefit of the unfortunate man aggre
gated $27. T?w p oor fellow died on Fun
day, the 10th ins?.- A'»d has since been
buried at Park City. * Nobody knows
where the afflicted imlividi^ul came from,
but the supposition is that he work
iu a grading camp up the line, aitti being
sick with typhoid was left alone, when be
coming delirious >.c wandered off......Mr.
p. B. Winston is convalescing from an at
tack of typhoid malarial fever. He did not
have physicians from Minneapolis and
Mandan—the Pioneer Press to the con
trary notwithstanding..........Ex-Governor
Wentworth, the first governor of Montana,
in company with his wife, passed here yes
terday going eastward.......Wash Snyder,
the late engineer of the construction train,
has left us. Ho goes East to "pull passen
ger"......The dance at Park City on the 8th
inst. was a gorgeous, long-to-be-remember
, ed affair. The festivities were held in a
large new building, comer of Alkali Square
and Sage Brush Avenue. The ball room
was muchly decorated. From the ceiling
depended numerous wreaths, composed of
bullberry, greasewood and fir branches,
with a few cottonweeds thrown in to
heighten the spectacular effect. Promptly
at 9 o'clock a lonesome-looking rustler ap
peared, seated himself on the soft end of a
nail fceg, took something out of a bag and
got ready for business. At first we thought
it was "the cat," but when we heard it
speak we knew the band was before us.
The "mouf-organ and juice-sharp" could
not be procured, but when the three
stringed fiddle got warm in the hands of
Montana's Ole Bull, nobody missed the
rest of the band. At 9:30, the company
consisting of six ladies, and one hundred
and fifty ranch cavaliers tiled in, and the
ball was opened. An elegant individual
from Young's Point officiated as master of
ceremonies, and kept the other chumps
from becoming hopelessly entangled in the
harness. By special invitation a fortunate
few of tb«railroad boys were present, and
|
were impudent enough to attempt a dance.
Although poor dancers—lacking the sup
ple elegance of the P. C. P's.—the ladies
very graciously condescended to favor
them fora while, until their cavaliers in
terfered and forbade them to "dance with
common railroaders that drink whisky,"
and so the sinewy manipulators of timber
and steel were barred out as they could not
dance and durst not drink I'ark City
whisky, they were obliged to return to the
town on wheels. In the earlier part of the
night, when the merriment was at its
height, and clouds of pulverized alkali
floated about, and enveloped the moving
dancing mass of strength and beauty, a
collection was taken—not for the fiddler—
but for the sick man already mentioned.
The inhabitants as a rule responded gen
erously, but one clod-hopper danced up.
deposited fifteen cents in the hat, and grin
ning 'xpansively remarked, "Take it Cap;
ycr welcome. I alius give suthin to the
poor."' The ladies were very handsome
and hearty, especially one to whom con
tinued prosperity and a jocund nature had
given rotundity of form and a jolly ex
pression of countenance. Park City is in
habited by a colony from BJpton, Wis.,
and perhaps this accounts for their rippin'
style of dancing. Selah. X- T. C.

To the Editor of the Billings Herald.
The rails were laid into this town last
evening amid general rejoicing of the in
habitants and ranchers of the vicinity, who
came in to see the locomotive steaming up
the valley......Dr. Carroll, of the track lay
ing outfit, found a man lving at a ranch
five miles up the river, last Thursday, in a
delirious state and nearly dead with typhoid
fever; he was brought to Park City and
cared for as well as possible, but died Sun
day morning and was buried north-east of
the town. A contribution was taken up at
the dance Friday evening, and among the
citizens, to help defray the expenses of the
care and burial; Mr. Clark also contributed
to the fund. The man gave his name as
Gus. Uhlmnn. He was in a destitute con
dition, and had evidently been without
food or nourishment for several days......
An association for the recovery of stolen
stock was formed in this place last evening;
forty determined men united to protect
themselves from the depredations of
thieves, and intend to recover any stolen
animals, and bring the perpetrators to
justice, if any stock is taken from this sec
tion of the valley hereafter. P.

After examining the portable houses
which Mr. Rice haa placed on the Mc
Adow addition we concluded that he
could not have made any money nutting
them up at the figures which lie has,
yet the feasibility of supplying many of
the towns in this territory with such
houses has been demonstrated, and v/o
do not think that Mr. Rice will lose air *
thing eventually as the pecuniary loss
which may have been sustained now,
will be more than made up by a few
sales to parties who require such build
ings. We understand that several gen
tlemen of means have already com

of these portable houses for different
