From the Daily Herald of November 21. Workmen Enough. Supt. Garner desires us to state that he has a n the force he can conveniently work at the Mullau Tunnel, and that he cannot further increase the number of laborers until the tunnel machinery is delivered and put in operation. About one-half of the east end cut has aleady been cut, and the present force of men, working with pick, shovel and borrow, is fully sufficient to complete the ex cavation up to the granite face by the time the engines, air compressors, and drills are on the ground. This notice is given that laborers may not needlessly make the trip to the tunnel with the expectation that work can be secured. When additional men are required Mr. Garner will cause it to be known. Mullau Express. Messrs. Jurgens & Price have put ou a daily express line between Helena and the Tunnel, making the run out in about three hours, and back in a little more than two hours. It is amazing the amount of carry ing business a little camp of sixty orseveuty ji vc people creates, commencing from the vci v start. The passenger and express hauls arc large and are every day increasing, but provision lias been made for every public ' private want. Should the recent min discovcries near the Tunnel prove to be as extensive and rich as the lucky prospect ors confidently predict a camp of importance is liable to be started there at once. The Gift Drawing in lintte. aim era! I i : The drawing of prizes in the distribution of Lion City real estate took place, says the billin', in Butte on Saturday night. The ticket bearing the number 027 drew the capital prize valued at $10,000, and is sup nosed to be held in Helena. The fourth , , o-riA pnze of a house and lot, valued at §o00, was drawn oy ticket No. 316. The sixth prize a house and lot, valued at $300, was drawn by ticket No. 1237. At this point the drawing was continued till to-night at the same place. There are remaining to be drawn, the second prize, valued at $3,200; the third prize, \ alued pt §1,500 ; the fifth, seventh, eighth, ninth and tenth, each valued at $300. As tin* greater majority of the numbers drawn la>t night happened not to hit on the prizes, there is a greater probability that holders of tickets not yet drawn, and purchasers of those for sale to-day by Mr. Tarbell, will conic out at the large end of the horn. I j Kcmedy for Small-Fox lever, ami Scarlet In the last number of Hall's Journal of J ha llh is given a remedy which is sustained by high authority as being a certain cure for small-pox, and equally efficacious for scarlet fi ver, which, in its virulent form, is fully as fatal. The remedy is as follows : Sulphate of zinc, one grain ; foxglove (digitalis), one grain; half a teaspoonful of sugar. Mix with two tablespooufuls of water, and when thoroughly mixed add four ounces of water. Take a spoonful every hour. The disease i will disappear in twelve hours. The dose given above is for an adult: for j children it should be less according to age. ! This remedy is not a quack medicine, but comes from the highest medical authority j and school of Paris. It is spoken of so con- j tidently by those who have used it that they declare no case will fail under its application ; that its general knowledge and use would remove all necessity for pest houses, save thousands of lives yearly, and would remove a terror that now broods at times over every house in the land. Kemember it, save it, use it, keep it at hand when either of those fearful diseases are around. Itoyal Templars of Temperance. This order has been in existence about four years and lias a memljership of about 19,000. It is incorporated by a special act of the Legislature of the State of New York, with headquarters at Buffalo. Mr. Geo. H. Taylor, of this city, is authorized to institute new councils of the order, and we are told one will soon be organized in Helena. It is a temperance organization. All male inem l>eis are insured for $1,000 or $2,000, and the ladies for $500 or $1,000, as may be desired. In case a meml>er from any cause should become totally disabled he would re ceive one half down and the remaining would be payed at death. Assessments are made according to age and amount of insur ance, and range from 50 cents to $1.25 per $1.000, with a ntemliership fee of $2.50 for ladies and $5 for gentlemen. After becoming j a member, either ladies or gentlemen can take advantage of the Endowment plan at an expense of $2 and an extra medical ex examination at the same rates oi assessment as above, which gives an additional insurance of §2,000. One half of this smn is payed to the insured after having passed his life ex pectancy according to the American Life Ex- j pectaney Tables.

Paymaster Assignments. Major Arthur, who has completed the cur rent payments at Forts Missoula and Ellis, has returned to Helena and is engaged in ar ranging his affairs prior to departure with his family east. The Major's order directs him to report to the Department of the East, his assignment to be either in the city of New York or on Governor's Island, as he may select. In view of the fact that Paymaster Dewey has been relieved from duty in Bos ton and ordered to report to the Command ing General of the Department of Dakota, it may become a matter of choice whether Major Arthur will succeed that officer at the Hub. As to Major Arthurs successor here some speculations are rife, Major Dewey ranks from 1867—to some extent a veteran in the service—and his wishes in the matter of assignment may in a manner be deferred to. Assigned to the military district of Mon tana he would become the ranking Paymas ter here. Should he be assigned to Fort Snelling (Department Headquarters) Major Bates would he relieved from duty at that I post, and would likely fmd his assignment here. We arc easily persuaded that no very i lively contest for the "Montana mission" is : liable at this season of the year to arise. No paymaster will altogether "hanker" after a winter's circuit-riding over Arthur's 800-mile ambulance rides and routes in this Territory. Evidently one or the other of these gentle men will come in for this western prize, and we wait to learn which of the two will win it. Major Blaine cannot be left without an assistant, and more than any other is he per Imps interested k nowin^ who the _°® ce ^ who will trave share his burdens and divide his St. Peter's Rectory. Last evening an important church matter called the vestrymen ot St. Peters church together. The matter before the gentlemen was Purchase ot a rectory tor the Kev. j, M Duff Mr Dnff has long siuce bce n exceedingly anxious to get his family out here and settled in this city ; but the inabil ity to secure a suitable house has deferred him from sending for them. For some time past the subject of purchasing a rectory for St. Peter's has been discussed and deliberated upon by the members of the Episcopal I church, all of whom were unanimous in j their approval of it. They were unable to carry the plan out, owing to the lack of houses for sale in Helena ; but at last their perseverance has received its reward. The vestrymen have purchased the residence of Major William Arthur, on Broadway, the consideration effected being $4,000. This is a handsome piece of property, and the church ! is to be congratulated upon having made ; such a fine purchase. The sale of the prop- ' erty has only been effected recently. For the present, owing to arrangements made by j the Kev. Mr. and Mrs. Duff, the latter with her little ones will spend the winter in the State of New York. Towards the early sum- ; mer Airs. Duff and family will make the | overland trip to their future home in the Kocky Mountains, where a warm welcome awaits them from the parish of St. Peter's and Helena at large.

Alany in vited guests were present and partook ot the elegant spread prepared for the joyful occa sion. The bridal gifts were many and rich, friends from as far away as Alontana sending tokens of rememberance. Happiness attend the young couple. Desert Land Litigation. A desert land case, involving the title to a tract of ground of considerable value about three miles south of Helena, in hearing be fore the Register and Receiver for the past two weeks, came to a conclusion yesterday, so far as the submitting of evidence is concerned. The parties to the case are Willliam Wallace, contestant, and S. K. Boyce, sr., defendant. The lawyers have until Alonday next to submit their pleas, and decision in the case will not be reached until some time next week. __ Desert Land Sales. In the Helena Land Office, last week, up j wards of $7,000 in cash sales of desert land were made. Twenty of these sales, or more than two-thirds of the whole number, were locations in Beaverhead and Aladison coun ties, on the line or within a few miles of the Utah & Northern Kailraod. The lands thus purchased are in bodies varying from 80 to 640 acres each. Yesterday the laud sales under the desert act exceeded $1,000.

Transportation is on the way to move from Silver Bow the engines, air compressors and other machinery recently delivered there for the Mullen Tunnel work. The entire equip ment, with the possible exception of the 15,000 pound boiler, will probably be placed at the Tunnel site as early as next week. The hauling outfits operating between the railroad and Butte are said to be light and two few in number to handle the machiner}', and hence one of the hundred heavy freight ing trains daily rolling into town will likely be sent from Helena to snake away the weightier parts of the cargo. Sinall-poxin Deer Lodge. A telegraphic message informs the Helena Board of Health that a genuine case of small-pox has appeared at Deer Lodge. Pre cautions against the spread of the scourge are being taken. Butte physicians have wired here for vaccine matter, and it is sup posed that the disease has also broken out in that camp. One case only ever appeared in Helena—that of Lieutenant Bradley. The patient was immediately quarantined outside of the city and the premises guarded, and the disease went no farther. Our West Side neighbors should act in the same manner, and their good health will be preserved from so dangerous a foe. Vaccinate. The Board of Health having been advised of the presence of small-pox in Deer Lodge and Butte, would request every citizen of , Helena to see that everv unvaccinated man her of his family« protected against this dis case—at the earliest possible moment. W. R. BULLARD, M. D„ Chairman. A Bntli in the Missouri. Yesterday Bartley Gahagen and two oth | ers -vyitli him, cn roule from Meagher county Helena, narrowly escaped drowning while crossing the Missouri river near El Dorado Bar. The party safely crossed the main channel, but within a short distance of shore on the Lewis and Clarke side, the ice gave | way precipitating men and horses into the river, giving them a thorough submerging in the chilling waters. Fortunately none were beyond their depth, and one after another succeeded in scrambling from the stream, the animals also finally extricating them selves with safety. Water or Whisky--Which ? that no converts can be secured to the cause at Summit valley. "More death, sir, lurks in the water in our camp than in the whisky," ! remarked a Butte citizeu yesterday, who ; was expostulated with by a Helena Templar, ' "But, mind you," continued the Silver City man, "there is one phase of the case from j which you can derive some comfort.

The Templar, hearing enough, thoughtfully pursued his way down street. The Gift Drawing at Butte. *0 -- The gift drawing at Bntte has been con cluded. The $10,000 prize was drawn by Air. George E.

OBITUARY. Mrs. Loretta M. Crounse. The death, Sunday morning, of Mrs. Loretta M. Crounse, wife of Silas H. Crounse, was an event not unexpected to those near to and recently attending at her bedside. Her illness was of several weeks duration, during which time all that medical skill and tender care could suggest were employed, but failed to succor her failing strength. Mrs. Crounse was a woman of many loveable traits of character. Never of strong health, her delicate constitution was supported by a resolute spirit which at no time till her last illness desponded. The loss a few months since of a beloved sister doubtless contributed to weaken her hold on life and to fix in her mind the thought that her earthly pilgrim mage, too, was done, and the time come to join the dear one who had preceeded her to the world beyond. A bright household is left desolate in this sad bereavement of hus band and children. A large number of friends, who greatly admired and loved Mrs. Crounse, will share in the grief which has fallen upon the family and sympathize with that feeling which esteems her death a loss to the community as well as to the sorrow-j a Weir ing home. FourTittle ones, including a babe three weeks old, are left motherless, and to wards them, and the bereaved husband, all hearts will tenderly turn in this sad hour. Nelson G. Haskell. Nelson G. Haskell, only son of W. S. Has kell, died in this city Sunday morning after a brief illness. His sickness, we learn, re sulted from an affection of the kidneys, aggravated by a cold, and resulted fatally after several days of suffering. Deceased was a young man of 26 years, a bright scholar who graduated some years ago with high honors from the Helena Graded School. He came here with his parents from Wisconsin in the early years of the Territory, a mere lad, and grew up in our midst to manhood. He bore an excellent character, was always industrious, and by all who knew him was held in high esteem. For some time he was trusted clerk in the employ of Messrs. & Pope, and subsequently was with his father and mother on a stock ranch in northern Lewis and Clarke. Only a few days ago he came with his father to Helena to arrange for moving back to the city. While his father was absent removing Mrs. Haskell and the family effects here, he was taken suddenly ill. Dispatches notifying the parents failed to reach them, and they being called away, was fortunately gratified, and she was with him through the vigils of | Saturday night and to the lionr of his death, i ministering to him as only a mother could. The sympathy of many old friends and ac- j quaintances will go out to Air. and All's, i were left in ignorance of their son's eondi tion up to the time of reaching town on Sat urday evening. The sufferer's wish, repeat edly expressed, to see his mother before Haskell in their great bereavement. Alay their sad hearts be comforted by Him who alc-ne can help them in sorrow such as theirs. Mrs. S. L. Holtznmn. [Denver Tribune] Another sweet spirit has passed away from earth ; another home is desolate ; another family piteously stricken. Nowhere in the length and breadth of the land could death bave found a more shining mark than he did last Friday night, when he took Airs. S. L. Holzman within his cold embrace and bade her bid adieu to all her loved ones. Such a busy, healthy life had beeu her's—one so full of light, and love, and ministry—and so very recent had been her illness that her friends scarcely realize she has so soon passed from their sight. She was one of those sweet, cheerful women, who carry sunshine where ever they go, the very queen of those who leave unspeakable desolation when death claims them. In deeds of public charity she was ever in the foremost ranks, but her gifts were unostentatious, and her alms giving never mentioned. She was an able, worthy president of the ladies' Hebrew Relief society until within the last few months, but more than all, she was a devoted wife and a true mother. Mr. Holzman has lost the truest and best of wives, and has the heartfelt sym pathy of a large circle of friends, both for himself and his motherless children, of whom there are three, the youngest being a wee baby girl only three weeks old. Dora Sands, such was her maiden name, was born in the city of Kabseh, in Kussia Poland, in 'the year 1847. Some fifteen years ago she came to America, where she was received by a large circle of devoted brothers and sisters, who bitterly mourn her loss to-day, and was married in Helena, Montana Territory, in September, 1871, to the well known and estimable Air. S. L. Holzman. This proved a most happy union, and not until three years ago did they leave Helena to make Denver their home. Here they need no introduction. The bereaved hus band who sits alone to-night has the warm sympathy of the entire community. Organization of United Workmen We are pleased to note the fact that the Ancient Order of United Workmen is about to lie established in our midst with a large ! charter membership. Those of our citizens ; who have already assented to receive the ! benefits of this organization are from our ; most respectable class. The A. O. U. W. is emphatically a business institution. It dis ponses benevolence in a practical, business- j like manner, conducting all its financial ; matters with as much system and strictness | ™ outstretched to help the weak and I worthy, and protect the widow and orphan | n the day of their direst necessity. Its ^tracils are guided by some of the wisest . . , e 0 . . , ,. and most emmeut men of State and natl0u - Indeed, it is believed that no other organiza tion during so brief a period of existence j i ia3 eV er gathered to itself so much talent all( j moral worth.

Henry Dildine will soon join his brother on their stock ranch in Aladison county. ! Jeflerson will regret to loose so excellent people as Air. and Airs. Dildine. If the many marriages are indications ' j Those mighty hunteis, A\ m. Loe and A1 ! Axe, are camping matter, the winter. signs are plenty for a in snug on the trail of the lordly deer and the broad-antlered elk. A sixteen mule train is about to be dispatched to bring in the game. The recent cold snap drove to cover many prospectors and others out of a job, and hotels, billiard halls and other public resorts are frequented by the swelling throng. The Calathumpian Combination, an ama teur troupe of prospective musical and mis cellaneous excellence, has inaugerated a series of entertainments, which will be kept up during the coming winter. There is a great deal of diversified talent in the com pany, and we shall not lack for amusement for the next few months. The public hall is attractively fitted up and the stage phara phanalia is complete in all its appointments. Mr. Con. Brecker is still out a good wagon and harness—gone, it is supposed, "where the woodbine twineth." Con. has "charged up" its full value. An accounting day will come around one of these times.

Profit Tuesday evening. He re turned with his family from the East on Monday. Mr. Profit, it will be remembered, started East about four months ago with a drove of 4,000 sheep, belonging to himself and W. F. Sloan. Being unable to make satisfactory terms with the Northern Pacific Company, he drove his herd to Fort Pierre, and shipped from thence by the Chicago & Northwestern road to Chicago. We believe Air. Profit is entitled to the credit of making the first drive and shipment of sheep from Alontana to the Chicago market, and whether the venture has proved a very profitable one or not to himself and partner, he has demon strated what can be done, and pioneered the way in what will prove to be an important and profitable industry to the Territory fcwhen the Northern Pacific road is a little SHREVE—MURRAA'.—In Wickes, at the Lodi;e Room of Eureka Lodge No. 13, November 11', lfcsl, by Rev.
