The closing exercises at the assembly room
of the Graded School building, which pre-j ceded the holiday vacation, was one of the most interesting of the year, and a large con »•ourse ol'parent- and friends were present to enjoy it. The programme consisted of music, sketches of the lives and selections from the writings of American authors. The sketch of Washington Irving, by Ada Woolfolk, was exceptionally good, and the lirst Governor of New York, which perhaps might be called a duett, by Daniel Alden and Kudolph Hors-1 key, very amusing. The Celestial army, song, was well rendered by eleven little girls, and showed the result of careful training. The j life of Oliver Wendel Holmes, by Miss Helen Wallace, was briefly outlined, and proved very interesting, and the Village Blacksmith, cated afforded the company mucti amuse ment, and if Mr. Longfellow is not equally diyerted on reading them we are very much mistaken. To Miss Etta Sharp was assigned the duty of sketching the life of Whittier, and the task was perform ed in a very creditable manner. The criticism of Whittier's poems, by Lalla a recitation, by Katie Paynter, received many flattering comments. But the portion of the ; programme which may be called rich, rare, i t i i., r am! racy, consisted of two letters written by i little Misses Clare Botkin and Ida Tubbs to the poet Longfellow. The composition 0 p the letters and the items of news commun!- j much amuse , , „ . , Brooke was a finished essay, and the récita- } tion Pipes of Lucknow, by Miss Gracie Fisk, : received many well earne» compliments. | Angels of Buena Vista—recitation, was per fectly rendered by Miss Mary Scannell and was one of the best of the afternoon. The solos by Miss Viola Hoyt were greatly en joyed and added not a little to the pleasure 1 . . . ' ol the exercises.

News reached Helena yesterday that O J-1 Embody was frozen to death during the re-j cent storm. The most careful inquiry, how-1 ever, has failed to discover full particulars of! _ . . Ins death.

E disposing ol it started to return to his home j te Prickly l'ear valley. Somewhere in the I t valley he stopped at a house to warm and then continued on his journey. The horses were started in the road while he followed , on foot behind the sleigh. The team soon ! got ahead of him and he attempted to reach \ a house by taking a short cut across the prai- j rie, but mistook the way and went in an op- ! posite direction. The team reached home ! the same evening. A party soon afterward : started out in search of the missing man but i did not succeed in finding him until yester day afternoon. When discovered life was not yet extinct but he died before they were able to get him to a house. for Iucendinry Fire at Benton. who turn may Last A\eek incendiaries set fire to the hay stacks of Harris & Strong, which were a short distance outside of Benton.

Jack Hamilton, a very prince of stage drivers, brought the overland in last evening at half-past five o'clock. For many years he I drove over the terrible winter range at Pleas ant Valley and has the proud record of hav- i ing never missed a trip. On Christmas night, ! however, in coming in from Montana, the coach which he drives had a rough experi- ; enœ. The storm was blinding, and they wandered off the road and overturned in the reservoir. Bv great exertions on the part of the passengers it was finally righted, but the roiul was soon after hopelessly lost. After floundering around for some time, the Boze man telegraph line was accidentally found, and by keeping runners out ahead to find the succeeding poles, the driver was finally able to reach town. Mr. John Vawter and several other passengers speak in the highest terms of Hamilton s skill and courage, but for which they would have spent the night upon the prairie. Masonic Election.

It appears that in company j with a Chinaman he had started to go to a ■ sheep camp, located a few miles from the i ranch, and alter traveling about two miles i came upon a wolf trap, in which a large dog : | had been caught. He made an effort to liberate the imprisoned brute, but the latter, rendered mad by hunger, attempted to bite ; him. Mr. Miles therefore concluded to kill the dog to save it from a lingering death, and with that Purpose in view drew off a few I paces and fired a ball from a Winchestar hnnn . na * rifle which he happened to be carrying, The first shot was not successful and he raised the gun to shoot again, but as the cartridge stuck in the lock it was neces sary to get the gun in proper working order. Mr. Miles attempted to extract the cartridge with a pen knife, but in so doing it exploded with disastrous effect. The powder blew up into his face, blistering the skin and almost ruining his eyesight. The accident rendered l>inl llt l erIy llel pless, anrt liatl h e been alone cold. By careful treatment Mr. Miles will recover the full use of his eyes and will suffer no permanent disfigurement.— Mintr. HOLIDAY GOODS !
