Subscription for Loninimmm Rnfferorn.
Wells, Fargo & Co., who have 660 offices
in tho Pacifie Sûtes and Territories, have
sent to each a circular asking their agents to
solicit subscriptions, to the 'iund for the re*
lief of the sufferers by the overflow of the
Mississippi." Mr. Child, their agent in Hel
ena, in one trip up Main street collected $75,
in sums of from $20 down to 25 cents. A
contribution box has been placed on the
counter at the express office, and those who
desire to -'give their mite" can "put in the
box." With so many calls, the people of
Helena have done nobly, and the aggregate
of the small sums given will do a great deal
towards the relief of those in distress.
Building nalcriali
It is cstimatod that about two millions of
brick have thus far been used In the construc
tion of buildiugs in Helena this year. As
many more will be required for buildiug dur
ing the remainder of the season.
Lumber, fortunately, is plenty. Hardware
has been scarce, but is now here in sufficient
quantities to supply the demand. Brick only
have been scarce, and the added incentive of
the Assay office and other buildings in con
templation by private parties will make a
ready market for nil that can be made at re
munerative prices. Mr. Kessler has just
burned a kiln of about 200,000 and will add
200,000 more to the supply before the close
of the summer.
—The local advertisement of A. M. Holler
& Bro., the pioneer manufacturers of Montana,
appears In to-day's paper. They have two
saw mills constantly in operation, and can
supply the largest orders for lumber on the
shortest notice. Doors, sash and blinds ship

--E. W. Carpenter, County Superintendent
of Public Instruction, will return to Montana
from his Eastern tour in July.
A Nw lustier*
We have received from Mr. £. W. Carpen
ter, now visiting friends in Connecticut, the
following clipping from the New Haven
Palladium of the 6th lost.:
"People Hrc cautioned against a swindler
of light complexion, five feet six inches
high, spare in figure; with a large, long head
and a slight cast of eye, wearing a light felt
hat and dressing neatly, speaking rather
thickly with a slight hesitation and an English
accent, perverse in the use of the letter h, and
hailing from Fort Benton, Montana. He pre
tends to be the brother in the high standing
house of Isaac Q. Baker A Brother of that
place. He disappeared from the city yester
day about 1 p. m., after having given his
check on a New York bank to the Blake
Crusher company for $1,600, in pavment for
four stone crushers, to be delivered by the 1st
of July. Telegrams from New York show
that he is a swindler. He will probably use
the receipt for the above bill for swindling
purposes. '
Mr. Carpenter informe ua that the swindler
seemed to be well acquainted with Montana
localities, and it ia possible that he may be
Vernon, of unsavory memory, or hla
worthless companion, both of whom our
readers will remember, recently des c e nd ed
tho river from Benton In n total boat.
Huw tu Judge ef a City*
The Louisville Courier-Journal says: "The
average amount paid in the last five years in
the United States for advertising was about
$15.000.000 per annum. Ia 1867 New York
City paid $80,000 taxes on advertisements ;
Philadelphia, $30,000; Boston, $23,000; Cin
cinnati, $10,000; Chicago, $15,000, and St.
Louis over $13,000. The wealth of the mer
chants in those cities and the extension of
their bnsincss over the the whole country, as
well as the flourishing condition of the cities
themselves, show w'hat advertising may ac
complish. It is a common remark among
observing business men that the enterprise of
a city may be judged from the appearance of
advertising columns of its newspapers.
From the Daily Herald of June 19.

Arrival si tfe* May Lowry at Carroll*
Ths manifest of the steamer May Lowry,
which boat arrived at Carroll on the 6th inst,
was received by mail from Camp Baker last
night. The manifest and a number of letters
were brought through from Carroll to Baker
by a courier, the Diamond "R" Company
paying him $100 for the trip. A short dis
tance below Carroll the steamer met with a
mishap in the breakage of some of the boat's
important machinery, and was compelled to
lay up. The steamer Josephene, on the way
down from Benton was hailed, and negotia
tions were opened with her Captain to tow
the May Lowry to Carroll. The sum of $1,
250 was demanded. This sum was considered
exhorbitant, yet the Captain of the May
Lowry, having instructions from the manager
of the Kountx Line to spare no expense in
making as expeditious a trip aa possible, gave
the amount demanded, and the boat was soon
towed to its destination. The Diamond "R"
Line, together with its connections, are doing
all that human power can do to deliver their
freights to consignees as promptly as possible.
There has been no delay at Carroll. Within
forty-eight hours after the arrival of steamers
at that poiut all goods have been forwarded
by the Diamond "R" Line. The roads so
far have been very heavy, jet shippers can
rest assured that their goodf will be delivered
as fast ss trains can be pushed through.
As will be seen by the authenticated mar
riage notice elsewhere in the Herald, another
bachelor of Helena has forsaken his comrades
and gone over to the Benedicts. We refer to
Mr. Wm. Sims, the gentlemanly and accom
plished clerk of the St. Louis Hotel, who last
evening led to the altar, Mist Ada M. Hobbs,
a charming young lady of Cleveland, Ohio.
The ceremony took place at the Hot Springs
House, the Rev. W. C. Rommel officiating,
after which a bounteous repast was served
up to the wedding party by mine host Wass
weiler. Mr. Sims, the groom, we belieye,
was a member of the ancient and honorable
Bus Fuz Gob, and bis brothers of the order
were loth to part with him. Under the cir
cumstances, however, it was compulsory, as
a matrimonial alliance necessitated a card of
withdrawal and a severance of all the social
ties appeilaining thereto. We wish him
much joy, ss well as his interesting young
Return si SfsrtsisB*
Messrs. Stickney and Kingsley, who have
been out the past fortnight towards the Belt
Range country, on a sporting excursion, re
turned home to-day. They report a glorious
time at hunting and trout-fishing, and came
back laden down with trophies of brook and
field. The half of a black-tail carcase was
deposed by Mr. Stickney in the Hskald
tanetum, for which our acknowledgments are
tendered. Ben. is not the biggest man in the
community, but he is one of the mightiest
huuters of Helena.

Company, Upper Indian Creek, believes in the

for five copies of the Herald, four of which
he sends to the States, reserving one copy
for "home consumption."
—The book, "Literature, Art and Song,

the city, is the most magnificent production—
as regards styles of bindings, quality of pa

the line of the Indian Reservation some fifty
or seventy-five miles further north.
—The attention of our merchants is directs
ed to the advertisement of B. F. White, now
the sole proprietor of the Oneida Salt Works,
Idaho. Oneida salt is an excellent article, and
can probably l>e laid down in this market at
a less figure than salt from the East. Mr.
White says: "I challenge a comparison of
analysis with any salt in the world."
—Mrs. Rumlcy, at the homestead on Rod

and if reasonably cared for, produce more
abundantly than in other portions of the
western interior.

our old friend Robert Ilagaman, of Bing

per overland coach from Corinne, and is stop
ping at the St. Louis Hotel. Bob will, we
trust, tarry with us some time.
—Dr. Bevier, U. S. Indian Inspector, and
Major Reed, arrived this morning from the
Crow Agency.
We understand that Billy Lepley is pros
pecting on bars between Three Mile and
Eight Mile, and is obtaining encouraging
prospects. We have understood from par
ties who have spent some time in this locality
that gold is to be found over the whole extent
of country, from Burnt Fork to Eight Mile,
and it is confidently believed by experienced
miners that only the successful opening of
this region is needed to develop a large extent
of hydraulic diggings. The scarcity of water
is the great drawback in making the experi
ment; but if any extent of good mines there
could at once be assured, the waters of Burnt
Fork would be brought in. We trust that
the matter will be thoroughly tested, and we
are confident that our people, who are so
deeply interested will give all proper encour
agement to any enterprise having a reason
able prospect of success. —Miuoulian.

As Billy Lepley was sinking a prospect
hole in the vicinity of three Mile last week, a
bear with two cubs came out of the hills and
made for him. Fortunately, he had his Henry
rifle with him, and when the got almost upon
him be unloaded to her. The fight then came
to close quarters, the bear getting hold of hia
arm and lacerating it considerably. Just
then, one of the cubs began to cry, and the
bear ceased fighting to attend to family mat
ters. Billy bad act lost any bear, and allowed
her to go off peaceably with her darlings.
▲bont 10 o'clock Thursday night, a crash
was beard, and the people immediately gath
ered on the streets, some supposing that the
bridge had fallen, and some a part of the
Dana House. It was ascertained that it was
the lower teer of stalls of Messrs. Lent &
Osborn's stable, and that Mr. James Osborn
and a number of horses were under the ruins.
The citizens took hold, in true miner's style,
and soon brought Mr. Osborn to the sarface,
and took him to the Dana House, where his
wounds were dressed. His leg was found to
be broken in three places and two of his ribs
broken. While his hurts are quite'serious,
he is in good spirits and will soon recover.
The horses were all gotten out in the course
of an hour from the happening of the acci
dent, and only three of them found to be se
riously injured. This part of the stable was
among the oldest buildings of the town, the
roof being covered with poles, then with
straw and dirt on top, making a thickness of
about two feet of roofing material. The un
usual amount of rain this season has added
greatly to its weight. Just before the acci
dent, Mr. Osborn noticed dirt rattling down
through the roof and made baste to get oat
the horses, there being fifteen or twenty in
this row of stables. He got out seven or
eight when the crash came, and his life was
probably saved by falling at the side ot the
horse hé was attempting to get out. Messrs.
Lent & Osborn are among our most enter
prising citizens, and have lately been at no
little expense, aot only in the purchase of
some excellent livery stock, but in the erec
tion of a new front to their stables, and a neat
little office adjoining. They have the sym
pathy of the entire community in the loss
which has befallen them.
