From tljo Daily Herald of May 7. The Branch Store. It has been known for some time that Gans A Klein, the clothing kings of Montana, de siring to better accommodate their large and constantly increasing trade, had leased the tine building on the corner of Main street and Broadway, recently occupied by Block & Co. Their lease commenced on May 1st, and since that date they have been actively en gaged in getting the room in proper shape and moving from their three-story up-town house a portion of the immense wholesale stock they always carry. The new store will do exclusively a retail business, while the up town house will continue to retail as w T ell as wholesale. Gans & Klein have been leading clothing merchants in Helena ever since Helena was named. Their customers extend from one end of Montana to the other. They ha"e dealt fairly and squarely with their patrons, and those who once buy of them come again. They import and man ufacture their own goods (this branch of the business being conducted by Mr. Gans, in New York) and thus they are enabled to offer goods at figures that can scarcely be equalled. The public are invited to drop in at the new ''Branch Store " and get acquain ted not only with the place but with the latest styles of clothing and gents' furnishing goods. Hiver Mews. From the Bismarck Tribune of the 25th ult. we clip the following River items : The Benton, of the Benton line, W. R. Massie, master, and Barr, clerk, arrived Sun day morning, and after loading at Bismarck left on Tuesday for Fort Benton. She will run regularly during the season between Bis marck and Benton, and will leave Bismarck on her second trip about May 15th. The Kate Kinney and R. W. Dugan, en route to Bismarck, passed Omaha on the 19th inst. The steamer Tatum passed Plattsmouth the same day. The Peninah left Benton for Y T ankton on the 20th inst. The Far West left for Bis marck on the 17th, and is therefore due. The C. K. Peck should arrive to-day. The St. Louis Republican of recent date says : "So far, our list of steamers in the Upper Missouri and yet to go, numbers 31. The Yellowstone transportation company will send up in a few days two steamboats and six barges." The Yellowstone arrived from below yes terday and will leave for the Upper Yellow stone this evening. She is loading principally with freights for Bozeman merchants, and for her owners, who are interested in a new town on tho Upper Yellowstone. The Benton carries 200 tons of freight and 55 passengers on her up river trip. All for Benton. No Doubt About It. We are in receipt of a letter from Mr. P. A. Largey, dated Chicago, April 25th, 1877, in which he announces that he would be married in a few days, the 30th of April hav ing been set for the consummation of the nuptial ties. The bride's name, as previously stated, is Miss Lulu Sellers, a daughter, he says, of Colonel Sellers, who was made fa mous by Mark Twain and Raymond. As many of Mr. Largey's friends in Helena have been disposed to discredit the published state ments heretofore made in reference to his mat rimonial venture, we feel it our duty as a jour nalist to give his own announcement of the happy event, and thus dispel the doubt which seemed to exist in the minds of some of his old bachelor contemporaries. by l.ittt of lAtr Books Lately Receive«! the Territorial Law Library. !

Kountz for the mountain trade, will be commanded by Capt. H. G. King, and Mr. G. J. Haslette, an old I'iUsburger, but who for a number of years has been engaged on the lower rivers, will have charge of the office. The Custer is 182 long, 28 feet beam, and four feet depth ofjhoid ; cylinders 14f in diameter, with four fect stroke ; two boilers, 20 inches in diame ter ami 25 feet long ; wheel 46 feet in diame ter, with 18 feet bucket. Like all the rest of the Kountz steamers, she has only one smoke stack. The Commodore claims that there is more equality of draft with one chimney than w-ith two, and that there is not near as much danger of explosion. The Custer will not draw more than fifteen inches, if that, and she will carry 400 tons ; she has two hundred tons of Montana freight, Pittsburg manufactures, which is all she wiji take. This boat is generally conceded to be'one of the best, if not the best, boats that has ever been constructed for the Upper Missouri trade. She will take her departure just as soon as she can be got ready—perhaps to morrow. ed on by for I. on if he a on he of & Personal. —Maj.

Johnston, one of the oldest members of the legal fraternity of Helena, will bid good bye to his friends in a day or two and leave for the Black Hills. He goes to Deadwood City; where he will remain dur ing the summer, and if the country suits him will locate permanently. As a criminal law yer, Col. Johnston ranks among the foremost of the bar of Montana, and in the new field which he seeks we predict for him a success ful and lucrative practice. Particulars of the Burning of the Seamer Carroll The following particulars concerning the destruction by fire of the Steamer Carroll, bave come to band : "She left Yankton for Fort Pierre, as already stated, Sunday, 15th inst., with nearly 300 tons of freight and, it is now said, 215 passengers, mostly men en route for the Black Hills. She was burned with her cargo, while lying at the bank Thurs- day morning, about fifty miles above .Fort Randall. The fire broke out in the hold of vessel between 1 and 2 o'clock. Nothing definite is as yet known concerning the ori- gin of the fire, though it was reported that it was first discovered in some baled hay, piled near the hatchway. The flames sprang up and spread so rapidly that nothing of account could be saved of the freight, and the large number of passengers had barely time after the alarm to dress themselves and gain the shore, though they all got safely off the burn- ing boat. In an incredible short space of time the steamer was a total wreck, and her contents entirely consumed. - — - .4 4 ^^ »► m - Tbe Hot Springs House, Under the management of Mr. W. J.

We learn from a gentleman who arrived from Deer Lodge last night, that James E. Owens, who was arrested in Helena a few days ago by Sheriff McAndrews on a war rant charging him with rape on the person of a little girl, had a preliminary examination on Saturday last. Owens was admitted to bail in the sum of $5,000, in default of which he was committed to jail to await the action of the grand jury at the next term of court. at of 5 5£ all of We »land Corrected. In referring to affairs at the Flathead Agency recently, we stated that Maj. Medary was a Protestant. The Missoulian says we "got off wrong," and therefore we make the correction. We clip the following para graph : " The Herald, in its notice of matters at theFlathead Agency, published else, where, is out wrong in one or two important particulars. Mr. Medary is not a Protestant, unless an American Catholic may be placed in that category. Himself and tbe priests have not disagreed about the manner of con ducting affairs, and if any ill feeling exists it is not known of here. The personal war fare that has been going on for some time against the Agent has been altogether from Indian sonrees, although what concealed hand is striking through the Indians is not known. The same warfare was waged on the two preceding agents, and probably will be on all subsequent ones while the present policy prevails." «4 —— Stock Gambling: in California. Ex-Secretary of the Treasury, Hugh Mc Culloch, writes from San Francisco to a New York paper : " Unless I am greatly mistaken, there are now nearly as many able-bodied men vainly seeking employment, and more whose business is ' speculation,' in this city than there are in any of our eastern cities of much larger population except New York. Dealers will tell you that times were never so dull, and yet every forenoon California street is literally packed with men anxiously gaz ing at the quotations of mining shares as they appear in the windows of the stock ex change, and in the city, where not long ago, and for a number of successive years, an ounce of gold was considered only a fair compensation for a day's labor, an adver tisement for laborers would be promptly re sponded to by thousands of strong and hearty men willing to work for $2 a day."

French Bar Mines. To the Editor of the Herald: The dull monotony which has prevailed on French Bar for some time past was broken last Monday by a big supply of water arriv ing here. The miners here are rustling around, getting ready to wash up their win ter's dumps, from wnich they expect good wages for their work. Tom. Gray & Co., and Judge William Finn & Co., will be the bankers of French Bar this spring, as they have some very rich pay dirt to sluice up. D. F. Hedges and Oscar Robinson have rented the old Pittsburg Company's diggings and ditches from S. T. Hauser, and they expect to give a good account of themselves this summer. P. G. Webber & Co. are working very good ground and making good wages. Gus. Szwerger & Co. will commence sluicing in a few days. P. C. Ruy has been drifting in his bar claim all winter, and expects to clean up in a few days quite a little dab of gold. All tbe miners here are happy and contented, and lively times are anticipated in this camp the coining summer. EUREKA. For Tongue River. Three of our old-time citizens—A. L. Pich- ler, J. Bartels, and L. D. Smith—left this morning for Tongue River. They go to Benton and take passage down the river to Bismarck and from thence across the country to the cantonment at the mouth of Tongue river. They expect to locate permanently in that new and thriving country. We dislike to see our old citizens leaving Montana—the best country in the world, all things consid- ered—but if they must go we cannot do less than to wish them success and prospeiity wherever they may pitch their tents. Messrs. Pichler & Bartels, who were proprietors of the Overland Hotel for several years, intend to build a public house at the cantonment, mouth of Tongue river, though of course they cannot fully determine as to the enter- prise until they reach that point and see how the land l$ys and if the inducements are sufficient to justify them in such an under- taking. -— ««■> 44 4 «^^ ►* - BREVITIES. —The river at Benton is up to high water mark and rising slowly. —The freighting season of 1877 promises to he the liveliest of any since 1869. —Five thousand bushels of charcoal are wanted at the U.

Chemical analysis discloses the fact that, among the articles used for food, there are only two, wheat and milk, which contain all tbe elements of the human body, and in the proper proportions. Other articles, such as butter, sugar, syrup and fat of all kinds, are wholly carbonacious, or heat producing, so that if a human being were to attempt to live on these articles alone his brain and muscles would starve. By actual experiment It haa been fonnd that a man could not survive two* months on such a diet. Major Reno says he is sorry, and his friends are sorry, and perhaps the sentence will be lightened.
