From the Daily Herald of April 26. Wood Problem---Answer. To the Editor of the Herald. Please inform me through the columns of the Herald the correct way to measuare a load of pole wood on the wagon, the load being 16 feet long and 111 feet in circumfer ence. (It not being convenient to get the wood square for measurement I measure around it. There is such a variety of opinions regard ing the correct way to get the actual amount of wood in the load, I thought to get your solution of the problem, and enlist the mathematical experts, perhaps. We have those here who multiply the the length by the circumference and divide by 128, saying that is correct, and many other ways, but no agreement. DEER LODGER. ANSWER. The above solution is not correct. To find the contents of a cylinder, which is the form of this load of poles, we multiply the area ef the base or load by the altitude or length. To find the area of a circle, having the circumference given, we multiply the square of the circumference by .07958, or multiply the circumference by one-fourth the diameter. Squaring the circumference, 111, we have 132.25x.07958=10.524,455 ft., the area of the base or end of the load. Multiplying this by 16=168.39128 feet, which can be reduced to cords by dividing by 128, the number of cubic feet in a cord. Army Notes. The following embraces the recent move ments of troops in this military district : •Companies F and K, 3d U. S. Infantry, under command of Lieut.

The purchasers are an association of Eastern gentlemen, known as the Concord Cattle Company, who have embarked in the stock growing industry of Montana on an extensive scale. An Interest Common to All. It will, doubtless, create some speculation in the mind of the reader to know what possible connection can exist between the West and East, but the explanation is sim ple : It is the Michigan Central Railroad. This corporation has attained a world-wide reputation for management that sees, in pro viding for the comfort and convenience of the traveling public, its own desideratum. It was the first railroad running between the Atlantic and the West that adopted the now famous Dining Cars, and the first railroad in the world that threw enough energy and capital into these cars to make them success ful. *, The people of the West are to be con gratulated upon the fact that, by the recent absorption of the Canada Southern by the Michigan Central railroad, they will now meet the management of the latter company and may avail themselves of its advantages. Palace Sleeping Cara run from Chicago to New York and Boston, via Buffalo and Niagara Falls, and we recommend those about to go East to try "The Niagara Falls Route." Wanted.

The sixty-fourth anniversary of the es tablishment of the Order of Odd Fellows in America was celebrated last evening by the various lodges and encampments in Helena by appropriate exercises in Harmonia Hall. The members of Helena Lodge No. 1, Ex celsior Lodge No. 5, Order of Rebecca and Rocky Mountain Encampment No. 1, as sembled at the Lodge Hall on Main street, and formed in marching order. With the Hel ena Silver Cornet band leading, the mem bers, to the number of 120, marched along Grand and Main streets to Broadway and then to Harmonia Hall where the pro gramme of exercises as prescribed by the Sovereign Grand Lodge was carrried out, the various parts being taken by Noble Grand, Homer Hewins ; Vice-Grand, Jas. L. Davis ; Chaplain, Jas. Sullivan ; Secretary, Richard Lockey ; with Grand Master Massena Bul lard as orator of the occasion. The history of the organization in the United States was recited and the statistics connected with the Order from its advent into Baltimore until the present time were given. The Chaplain assisted and the Apollo club furnished sacred music for the evening. Grand Master Bul lard stated in his address that the Order had increased marvelously since its beginning in this country in 1830, and up to the present time 1,224,8G9 persons had been initiated who had contributed $87,574,260, of which $32,777,554 had gone to relieve the distress of members of the Order to the number of 996,459 and widowed families to the number 132,791 who had been educated and pro vided for. showing that 37 per cent of the receipts had been given in benefits. There are at present in the United States 9,468 Lodges and Encampments, of which 13 are in Montana, with 550 members, by w hom $1,684 were paid out in 1882 for relief of the members. Helena has two Lodges and one Encampment with 120 members and increas ing rapidly. The Fast Grand Master, Jas. L. Davis, was presented with an elegant P. G. Representa tives regalia by Excelsior Lodge No. 5, which was handed to him in a neat speech by G. M. Massena Bullard, as a memento of past as sociations as he expects to leave the Terri tory. The assemblage then dispersed to return and enjoy the grand ball following, which was the finest entertainment seen in Helena in the history of the the order. Under the efficient management of the various com mittees the affair passed smoothly off, and notwithstanding the large crowd and sultry weather all were well pleased with the exercises connected with the 64th anniver sary as celebrated in Helena. Henry Villard and Party.

A New Flouring xMill. Mr. Mark Shelly, of Meagher county, re ports his new flouring mill, located on Deep Creek, completed and in operation. This is one of the largest and most complete mills yet erected in Montana. It is of five floors, is equipped with the best modern machinery used in the manufacture of superior brands of flour, and has the capacity of two hun dred sacks of flour a day, with power to largely increase the product. The Missouri valley—the country tributary to this mill— is one of the best and most extensive grain growing sections of the Territory, and will afford wheat supplies ample to employ the mill constantly. Mr, Shelley has three crops of superior hard wheat which he is now engaged in converting into flour. The wheat stock at present available is be tween seventeen and twenty thousand bushels. The cost of this, the Missouri Val ley Mill, is stated at $35,000. It is a valuable property, and an important acquisition to the Territory. The Royal Baker and Pastry Cook.
