Prom the Daily Herald of January 2. New Year's Calls. The old and time-honored custom of keep ing "open house" and receiving New Year's callers is not so popular in Helena as in former years. On New. Year's Day, 1872, there were more than forty "open houses;" on the 1st of January, 1877, about one-tenth that number. Among those who received their friends yesterday, were Mrs. W. F. Sanders, assisted by Mrs. Wade, Mrs. Rolf, Mrs. Trtem 3iiss Sanders and Miss Guthrie; Mrs. Cwumasero, assisted by Miss Belle Forbis, Miss Barber, Mrs. Broadwater and Miss Nettie Chumasero ; Mrs. Potts, assisted bv 31 rs. Neel ; Mrs. Pärchen, assisted by Mrs. D'Acbeul and Miss Jennie D'Acheul. Mrs. Cullen and Mrs. Totten also received callers, aud there may have been others ; but this comprises the list so far as we could learn. The weather was delightful, and al though a quiet New Year's it was neverthe less enjoyed by many of our citizens. CbriNtinas at the Black foot Agency To the Editor of the Herald. Blackfoot Agency, Dec. 26, 1876. There was a very interesting service at the Blackfoot Agency on Christmas day. The Teacher of the school and Missionary, Rev Hugh Duncan, had given notice to the children that there would be a special service and some talk on why the day was one of joy to all christain people. Care was taken that the children should all have some gifts, and the Agent, Missionary and employees, contributed cheerfully to procure a full sup ply of sweets and nuts, put up in neat parcels, and at the conclusion one was handed each child. It would have done any one good to see how their eyes twinkled with joy. There was enough to give the older Indians one each also. This was the first service of the kind ever held at this Agency. The school room was filled, the gentlemanly traders at the Agency, Mr. Hamilton and Mr. Aubrey, with their families honored the occasion by their presence. All were delighted with the services. L. Soldier Detachment for MiSMonla. Lieut. Fuller, with a detachment of the Second United States Cavalry, en route to Missoula, arrived here last evening, five days out from fort Ellis. The Lieutenant's com mand numbers twenty men, well mounted, and accompanied by mule transportation conveying commissary and quartermaster stores. Tbe detachment will be stationed until otherwise ordered, at the Flat Head Agency, quarters being already erected there suitable for occupation. Weather and roads permitting, the command expect to compass an average of twenty miles a day. Lieut Fuller is an accomplished and popular young officer, and it is safe to say that the good people of Missoula will welcome his arrival in their midst with their accustomed hos pitality. The Montana Theatrical Company. Our citizens are promised, in a day or two, a fine treat in the opportunity of listening to the world renowned drama, Rip Van Winkle, or the twenty years' sleep, as played by Joe Jefferson to crowded houses in Europe and America. No pains have been spared by tbe company in getting up a first-cla9s entertain- ment. 'Music, will be furnished by Messrs. Hewins and Dietrich, and several talented singers have promised their aid in furnishing choruses, solos, etc. To crown all, the pro- ceeds will be given to the Graded School for purchasing the much needed philosophical apparatus. Tickets for sale at all the prin- cipal book-stores. - M il I » »-»» » - The Library Party. The party at the Assembly room of the Helena Graded School last evening, for the benefit of the Library Association, was an immense success both financially and social ally, the attendance being much larger than upon any previous occasion. Upwards of 100 tickets were sold and it is estimated that the net receipts will not fall short of #250. It was the most substantial benefit of the kind ever realized by the Association. Of the party itself, we may justly remark that it was one of thé most enjoyable of the season. Marriage «r v. C. Prats. The Herald is in receipt of the following dispatch : "Ogden, January 1, 1877. Married, at Ogden, Utah, December 31st, by the Rev. J. L. Gillogby, Mr. D. C. Pratt, of Helena, Montana, and Miss Alice Gibbs, of Sherman, New York." The Hebald extends the usual felicitations upon the happy event and wishes the newly wedded couple prosperity and happiness. Hymeneal. It beats all how much some men can do even in these exciting political times. We all know what an active part Judge Royal took in the late campaign, yet all the time he was quietly pursuing a campaign of his own. Last week the Judge made a flank movement, unbeknown to his friends, and quietly stole do wn to St. Joseph, and was there met by Miss Belle O. May, of Montana, and the Rev. F. L. Linn speedily made the twain one flesh;— [MaryviUe (Mo.) Republican. —---t—j h Acquitted. Maj. Chas. 8. Medary, U. 8.

While out walking in front of the family residence she slipped and fell on the frozen ground with such force as to break one of her limbs. Drs.

The Gpvenor was chosen by a majority of one in a mem bership vote of twenty-three. From the Daily Herald of Janaary 8. Theatrical.

He says : "The road between this*place and Bozeman is now almost impassable for freight teams, and in fact, very difficult for any kind. The Madison river four or five miles above is gorged and the water, overflowing the bottom, is running over from 2 to 3 feet deep for a distance of one mile, and is getting worse every day.''

Many sufferers from this affliction who have used the Magic Cure bear testimony to its vir tues and the unvarying relief which its use has speedily brought. It is a sovereign con queror of pain, and reaches and exterminates the very germs of the disease. Try the Magic Cure, all ye who suffer from rheuma tism and kindred ailments, aud suffer no more. dit I. O. O. Installation. At a regular meeting of Montana Lodge No. 1, I. O. O.

The regular secretion and flow of the gastric juices, and of the bile which the use of Hosteter's Stomach Bitters promotes, are effects which conduce materially to the restoration of health, when the system is dis ordered. Food is not digested in' the dyspeptic stomach because the gastric fluid is deficient supera bundant or vitiated the liver becomes congested and the bowels constipated because the supply of bile is inadequate or misdirected. The Bitters rectifies all this, and removes every ill consequence of non-as. similation and bilious irregularity. Furthermore, it stimulates the action of the kidneys, by which im purities are, so to speak, strained from the blood, and any tendency in the urinary organs to grow sluggish and disordered counteracted. Whether it he used as a means of regulating gastric or bilions secretion, and relieving the overloaded bowels, or to promote com plete, and therefore healthful, urination, Hosteter's Bitters may be relied upon with confidence to accom plish the end in view.

The following extract from the report of General Crook in relation to the late cam paign against tbe Indians conveys some idea of the labors and dangers incident to savage warfare : "Of the difficulties with which we have had to contend, it may be well to remark that when the Sioux Indian was armed with a bow and arrow he was more formidbale, fighting as he does most of the time on horseback than when lie got the old-fa9hioned muzzle loading rifle. But when he came in posses sion of the breech-loader and metallic car tridge, which allows him to load find fire from his horse with perfect ease, he became at once ten thousand times more formidable. With the improved arms I have seen our friendly Indians, riding at full speed, shoot and kill a wolf, also on the run, while it is a rare thing that our troops can hit an Indian on horseback though the soldier may be on his feet at the time. The Sioux is a cavalry soldier from the time he has intelligence enough to ride a horse or fire a gun. If he wishes to dismount, his hardy pony, educa ted by long usage, will graze around near where hé has been left, ready when his master wants to mount either to move for ward or escape. Even with their lodges and families they can move at the rate of fif ty miles per day. They are perfectly famil iar with the country, have their spies and, hunting parties out all the time at distances of from twenty to fifty miles each way from their villages, know the number and move mente of all the troops that may be op erating against them, judge about what they can probably do, and hence can choose their own times and places of conflict or avoid it altogether. At tbe fight on the Rosebud, June 17, the number of our troops was less than one thousand, and within eight days after that the same Indians we there fought met anc, defeated a column of troops nearly the same size of ours, killing and wounding over three hundred, including the gallant commander, General Custer himself.
