A gentleman passing through Helena yesterday eu route to the Last, was called upon to ' stand and deliver' his opinion of this town. Nothing loth he did so in words to this effect : "Although I have been here only long enough to appreciate \ all you are doing, yet through the courtesy j of one of your citizens I was driven around every part of your city. The lirst thing that struck me was the number of hand some brick stores and residences. T he next, the large amount of building that was going on in every direction, and the quality of it. Your new court house, for instance, strikes me as being one of the handsomest buildings of the kind I have < ever seen. Of course, I speak of it as I saw it in the architect's plans, hut every indi cation points to its being as tine a building in reality as it is on paper. The hustle aud business hurry in your streets im pressed me very much, but 1 was no longer , surprised at it when I was told ol the enor mous hauking business done by the lour banks in town. That ol the I list National seemed almost incredible to me. I was shown a statement of the various mines situated near this towu aud drawing their supplies from it, and 'still my wonder grew.' fNlo not see why, with the marvel lous mineral resources of the country sur- ; rounding Helena, there should not spring up a secoud Denver here. I shall return East convinced that I have seen the he- : ginning of a great city. More was said ■ tiy the gentleman, and all iu the same eulogistic strain. As an evidence of his be lief iu his opinion, he remarked that he : was about to invest largely here as soon as he could make arrangements for doing so. .Such strong praise coming from a stranger \ is a straw that shows how the wind ot public opinion is blowing. Court Items from White Sulphur Springs. Judge Wade is hack from holding court j at White Sulphur Springs. He reports that 1 the Springs were crowded with strangers. Every room in the hotels was lull and sleeping places had to he improvised to accommodate those seeking abiding places. There were a large number of eases dis- | posed of by the court aud the following sentences were imposed : Fierce Kirby was sentenced to the peni- ; tentiary for live years for the crime of forgery. Tex Reed, a man named Smith and a man named McDonald received terms of two and three years in the peni- j tentiary, and John Derg was sent up Jfor | three years for arson. Probably the rea son lor the great rush of business at this term of court is that it will he the last oc- ! casion ou which Fergus county will be judicially attached to Meagher. When the time for the uext term arrives Fergus county will Ire within Judge Rach 's juris diction. Beside the penitentiary cases there were tour criminals committed to the county jail. Gold Bricks. The U. S. Assay Office at Helena melted to-day another $13,000 gold brick for the Drum Eummon Mining Company, the re sult of some selected ore from that famous miue. Two more gold bricks were stamped to-day by the same office for Mr. McNntt, of .Salmon River, Idaho, who sent his gold dust through the Merchants National Bank of Helena to he melted. The two bricks of Mr. McNutt ruu 950 line and have a commercial value of $12,000. --- --*-- Fatal Cattle Disease. Advices from Benton state that twelve out of twenty head of cattle have died near that place within the past few days of a strange disease. The disease baffies treatment, every animal attacked having died, and no diagnosis yet undertaken sat isfactorily delines the fatal ailment. Of several theories advanced here, one is weed poison ; another, the mineral taint of streams, in their stagnant or sluggish How following au unprecedented drouth. The Way of the Transgressor. The would-be smarty who tried to beat Treasurer Clewell out of a commercial traveler's license, and who registered in Helena as E. B. Sawtelle, Washington, D. C., and iu Batte the other day as E. B. Strickland, was caught by a telegr&i*n message aud made to stand the license for selling jewelry iu Helena, with costs of suit. Served him right. Base Ball. The Actives aud Alerts tried conclus ans at base hall again yesterday afternoon. This time the game was for a purse of .9100. The result must have been disap pointing to the Alerts, for the Actives walked away with them by a score of .>9 runs to'lA from the Dally Herald of September 28. LARGE REAL ESTATE SALE. Two Hundred Dollars a Front Foot for Ground on the West Side of Main Street Near Helena Avenue. | , \ j , While the capitalists of Helena are se curing from day to day the most eligible city property that in their opinion will be on top ot the boom when it does come they have overlooked one of the most de sirable pieces of real estate from one end of Main street to the other, and to-day it passes into the hands ot one of St. Louis' most enterprising and far seeing capitalists Oscar Bradford, now sojourning in Helena. Such a sale as that of the Gebauer & Yergy planing mill property shows the opinion of prominent capitalists outside of Helena, of the future of the city, and the immense possibilities vouchsafed to a com munity ofsuch rustling, wide-awake busi ness men as Helena has, who have given to a HEALTHV HAMLET of a few years ago a name and fame wide spread, whose proud distinction is the Queen City of the Mountains. It is not within the sanguine purview of the pro phetic eye, yet to see what greatness and grandeur will come in the near future to a people and a city endowed as our citizens and Helena are, the one with qualities that stamp them as prime promoters of substan tial wealth and trade, and the other as the embodiment of illimitable resources from mines, mills, ranges, agriculture and man ufactures. Such are the modest preten sions of Helena to-day, that there is scarce one of our citizens who can measure the significance of a sale of property on Lower Main street at $200 a front foot. To a reporter who may be said to be al ways lloating in the upper air, such a sale as he reports to-day, means that it is the beginning of a inarch of improvement that once startled the country with the strides of an eiubrio city at Denver in Colorado and an Omaha in Nebraska. The out-look liom Helena at the present moment just prior to the advent of four more railroads, whose whistles are almost sounding their music to our listening ears, is most encouraging and the prospect truly inviting. It may not be saying too much to expect as great things for Helena as have been vouchsafed to the cities before men tioned, and to others ol older birth and greater significance, and that our expecta tions will he realized in "history repeating itself," evep in the Rocky Mountains. It will not he surprising it Mr. Oscar Brad ford has set a hall in motion whose momen tum will not flag until a growing city will he pushing her conquests of new bounda ries far beyond her present limits, where property is now bought by the acre and where sales will soon take place by the front foot. Mr. Bradford as a capitalist and manufacturer in St. Louis has made and sent many a portable engine and machin ery into the Rocky Mountains and now he comes to witness their success and protit by (lie enterprise that placed them in the midst of the forest in years gone by. The property secured by purchase from Gebauyer & Yergy is that on the west side of Lower Main street, on which is erected their planiug mill, 128 feet front on Main and 400 feet on Placer street, which widens to 135 feet on Gulch street. The sale was made through the agency of Porter & Muth, and the consideiation isj$25,600—$15,000 of which is in hand and the balance within a year. Possession is given at once, but the present owners are to have the use of the mill for one year without rent. ANOTHER REAL ESTATE SALE. This Time in the West End. Henry Klein has just purchased from D. A. G- Flowerree two lots on Madison avenue and running west 159 leet. This property is eligibly located on the corner of Madison avenue and Flowerree street and forms a block of 100 by 150 feet and is just sout of the residence of Governor Hauser, on the same side of the street. No more beautiful piece of ground could have been selected by Mr. Klein for his hand some private residence in the West End than that above described, upon which he will soon erect a permanent beautiful home. The elevated position of this prop erty will always secure to it an extended view of the mountains on the north and east and over the broad Prickly Pear val ley, so charming to the eye and far reach ing in waving grain fields and productive farms. The consideration in the sale is $4,500, or $45 a front foot. ENJOINED. Another Injunction Suit to which the Rival Railroad Companies are Parties. On the complaint of the Montana Cen tral that the Helena & Red Mountain peo ple have taken possession of and are dig ging and excavating upon laud lawfully the property of the former company, and in compliance with an application that the H. & R. M. company may be restrained from continuing the acts complained ol, Judge Wade has issued an order requiring defendants to appear October 5th and show cause why an injunction should not issue. The land at issue is Iferminal ground at Rimini, appraised and condemned for the use of the Montana Central by a commis sion appointed by the District Court. The rival company claim the ground under deed prior to the condemnation proceed ing- ___ —New Northwest : The College of Mon tana is now full to its capacity, notwith standing President McMillan dissuaded parents from sending seventeen young pupils who desired admission. The prob ability that all the facilities for accommo dating older and more advanced pupils would be demanded led to this course, the object and tendencies of the institution be ing to academic and collegiate courses. President McMillan feels highly encouraged with the progress of the institution, the at tendance now being larger than it ever was before, and the classes well graded. From th® Dally Herald of September 29. A Morning Wedding. This morning at the 8 o'clock mass a larger number than usual assembled at the Cathedral to witness the marriage cere mony by which Mr. Samuel Nicholson and Miss Della Lalonde, of Helena, were made one. The ceremony was performed at a nuptial mass by the Rev. Father Kagaru. The decorations on the main and the two side altars were of natural flow ers, and the music on the organ was a cele brated weddiDg maich played by Miss Lizzie O'Neill. At the close of the cere mony and instruction, the bride aud groom drove in company with the wedding guests to the residence of the bride's mother on Seventh avenue, where the party regaled themselves at a wedding breakfast. The Herald extends hearty congratulations to the happy couple. Electric Hashers. Samuel N. Nicholson, who was married in Helena this morning, is not the only telegraph operator that love's mysterious shaft has impaled to-day from Cupid's brow. The tidings come upon lightning s wings that Sherwood Wheaton, a Western U nion operator in Helena, was married to-day to Miss Mamie II. Thompson at the residence of her father at Haddonfield, New Jersey. Mr. Wheaton, as well as Mr. Nicholson, is a Western Union operator of the first class and is favorably known in society circles here as a young gentleman of most attrac tive manners and social qualities. His wife is said to be highly accomplished and very beautiful. After spending a fortnight at South Seaville, N. J., and elsewhere iu the East the bride and groom will return to Helena. Chief Day and the Western Union operators in Heleua all sent con gratulatory messages to the happy couple. Let us hope that the operators made happy to-day and "equipped" with double "connections" may have no "breaks" in their "circuits" uor "cross-currents nor "batteries'' to complain of, and that their better halves may have no cause to regret ; their "Western Union." ------- Falling oil in Weight of Beef Cattle. ; A Herald reporter stood inspecting a dozen beef carcasses on the hooks ol one ot Helena's butcher shops this morning. "Those quarters are as fat and handsome as I remember to have seen this season in the market," remarked the scribe. "Yes," answered the butcher, "the hand from which those carcasses come is a choice lot. The animals were bought from the grower in Northern Lewis and Clarke. I bought from the same range a like number (fifty head) of four-year-olds a year ago now. This year they do not average in weight with those of September last year. Those so far slaughtered fall short 75 pounds. They lack, in comparison, hard ness and tallow fat. They are fine critters, but are not up to the standard of such beeves slaughtered here at this time during the ordinary run of years." Accounting for the falling oft' in condi tion and weight, the butcher's theory was that beef cattle this year have suffered more from the scant supply of good water than from any lack of nutritious grazing. A New Hall. The Knights of Labor have taken a two ycaiV lease of the second and third stories of Fred Lehman's new block on the east side of lower Main street. Nearly the whole of this large building on the second floor is thrown into one large hall—85x4(i feet, and 22 feet high. This hall lias a large gallery at the west end where a good view is had of whatever may be going on in the hall below. The Knights have also included in their lease four large ante rooms that are located on either side of the main stairs on the second floor, and on both sides of the gallery. There are two large store rooms on the first floor that are as commodious as any in the city, and will soon be ready for occupancy. More Gold. Marcus Silverman has three men em ployed washing the ground that comes from his cellar excavation on the east side of Main street. The miner who is attend ing the sluice boxes on Lawrence street, when asked by our reporter this morning how the dirt panned out, said : "That which we are washing now runs twenty five cents to the pan, but we won't know the general average until the clean up." It looks as though Mr. Silverman would get a good return from the sand and gravel excavation, which in any other place than Helena would cost money to cart away and dispose of. Verily the streets of the •metropolis yield their golden sands. Another New Hospital. • One of the latest and most important of the multiplying building projects maturing in the Capital City is St. Peter's Hospital a large aud elegant structure soon to be commenced under the auspices of the Episcopal church. Much interested in this large undertaking are Bishop and Mrs. Brewer, and local subscriptions to start the institution into being already exceed $4,000. The site selected for the edifice is on Eleventh street, and the foundation walls will be laid this fall. The total cost of the hospital is estimated at about$15,000. Right of Way Awards. The following awards were made on right of way condemnation by the com mission appointed on behalf of the Mon tana Central to go over the route from Half-Breed rapids to the mouth of Sun river : Acres.

THE TEACHERS INSTITUTE. FIRST DAY—SEPTEMBER 27. The Teachers' Institute, held in Helena, began this morning. At the hour fixed the teachers assembled at the High School. Miss Clark, the County Superintendent, called the meeting to order and presided e x ofdno. Miss Clark made a brief speech of welcome to those assembled in which she extended a greeting to her associates, both of last year and those who had come in this year. She gave a resume of the work already done and outlined what v.-J to come. After Miss Clark's little talk the business of the meeting was proceeded with. The first iD order was au exercise in phonetic spelling by Miss Benda, of the city schools. This consisted of placing upon the blackboard the vowels with their many and complicated sounds and showed very plainly what an immense quantity of learning is necessary before the young children of this generation can even learn to read or spell. The exercise gave rise to an animated discussion as to the advisa bility of the phonetic system of spelling and whether it could develop good spell ers or not. Mr. lines gave an example of another method ot teaching correct enun ciation, especially on the consonant sounds. An expert stenographer who was present gave it as bis experience that the phonetic system could not produce good spellers. That is, according to Webster's spelling book. It was finally agreed upon that the sense of the Institute was that although the phonetic system was not available as a help to spelling it should be taught thor oughly in all public schools as a help to correct reading. Mrs. Groshon next gave an illustration of her method of teaching primary arith metic and pointed her theory by a class of boys and girls, .whom she put through their arithmetical paces with a success that pleased all. The method taught by Mrs. Groshon was introduced here by Prof. Howard and developes great rapidity as well as correctness in the pupils. After the programme had been carried out the meeting adjourned. Mrs. Cummings was chosen secretary and Mr. J. W. Imes Assist ant secretary. The afternoon session ol the Teachers' Institute opened yesterday at 2 o clock. Besides those who were to take part in the programme, there were a number of out siders present who had come to enjoy the exercises. After a solo on the piauo by Miss White, fourteen little girls and boys were brought in by Mrs. Howard to illus trate the new method of teaching children to read. This method, while combining all the advantages of the old, is relieved of much of its irksomeness. Miss White then presented an able paper upon the perplex ing subject of fractions, which provoked quite a discussion as to the utility ot frac tions in practical business questions. I ri mary language was then discussed by Miss Bohn, who deplored the wide use of incor rect English. After Miss Bohn's remarks the meeting adjourned until the evening. When they reassembled Dr. McMillan of Deer Lodge delivered a fine address, en titled, "Hints from History for the Teach ers of To-day." The address was closely listened to and loudly applauded at its close. The meeting then adjourned until Tuesday morning. SECOND DAY—SEPTEMBER 28. The Institute was called to order this morning by Miss Clarke at 9:30 o'clock. Mrs. Hanna opened the proceedings by a paper on " Intermediate Reading." Bhe dealt with this subject, first, as to the con dition of the pupil's mind, and second, from the teacher's standpoint of require ments. Mrs. Hanna thought that the pupil's mind should be guided and led by the teacher, aud not followed ; that at the same time their independence of thought must be kept, and that at all times the teacher should be in harmony with the pupil. A taste for good reading should be inculcated in youth and carefully fostered. All trash shauld be avoided. Mr. Hanna dwelt on the importance of cultivating ex pression in reading as through that the pupil may best understand the import of what he reads. With a parting injunction to read carefully and digest all read, Mrs. Hanna closed her paper. The various modes of teaching were then discussed by all present, and the questions whether elocution should be made a leading role, and whether concert drill was advisable were well ventilated. Rev. F. D. Kelsey took part in this discus sion. Mrs. Cummins then read a paper on "United States History," containing a num ber of plans and methods for teaching this branch. Mr. Howard then presented the subject of "Fractions." He advocated making the work as simple and as practicable as possi ble, and leaving theoretical work alone as far as can be done. Mr. Howard then pro pounded his own theory as to the instruc tion of children in mathematics. And coming from so eminent a mathematician as Mr. Howard, his ideas have peculiar weight. He thought that now-a-days too much arithmetic is taught to children in the public schools. A good, work ing, every-day knowledge of arithmetic was all that was needed by the average business man. Addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, simple fractions and a good rule of interest thoroughly taught to the majority of children would be of more practical use to them in after life than a smattering of the higher branches of mathematics, with no branch entirely mastered. Of course a boy who intended to follow engineering as a profes sion, or who showed marked aptitude for mathematics, should be encouraged and led by his teacher into the highest branches he could attain, but for the majority of children the time spent in pushing them ahead into every kind of known and un known complications of figures was so much time wasted that might better be applied to perfecting them in the rudi ments of arithmetic. THIRD DAY—SEPTEMBER 29. Miss Bohn presented the subject of Pri mary Arithmetic, and showed very clearly that this subject may be made very inter esting and practical. The method is the ; use of objects with the children. Crude drawings may be placed upon the black board in the absence of charts for the pur pose. This subject is receiving special at tention in the Helena schools, and the re sult will be seen by and by in the improved business qualifications of her young men and women. Long columns of figures, the tiresome multiplication table, etc., as abstract are things of the past. Figures are only the representations of numbers, and should be » -aught. Prof. Howard helped out this subject by enforcing his ideas and methods as he is introducing them in the schools. The method of teaching primary geog raphy was illustrated by Miss Benda. The points of the compass are to be taught first, then the map of Helena, locating prominent streets and public buildings. Then the map of Montana is taught, with the rivers, mountains and principal towns. Some original plans were sug gested by other members of the Institute. Rev. F. D. Kelsey urged that each desk be provided with a small globe in order that proper ideas of size and form may be attained, since maps are frequently incor- ; rect and give wrong ideas of comparative size. The constant changes in regard to products, resources and rank, the change ^ in capitals of States and Territories render ^ geographies unsafe, even the latest edi tions. Prof. Engelhorn next spoke on the sub ject of Penmanship. The Professor spoke from practical experience, and gave many useful hints. Yesterday's afternoon proceedings of the Institute opened with class work by Mrs. Howard's pupils. The subject of Interest was then dealt with by Mr. Carleton, and advanced language by Miss Shields. In the evening Mr. Kelsey and Prof. Davis addressed the meeting on subjects ot in terest. A STRANGE CATTLE DISEASE That has Played Sad Havoc with Geo. M. Robbins' Little Herd. (River Press, Sept. 25,] The cattle of Geo. M. Robbins, who lives on the Missouri river about five miles above Fort Benton, are afflicted with some sort of disease which proves fatal to every one affected. Since Tuesday eleven out of his little herd of twenty-four head have died. Dr. Fairchild, John Green and Stock Inspector Sweeney went to Mr. Rob bins' ranch yesterday aDd made a thor ough examination of several head, and they were unable to determine what the disease was. Mr. Robbins says the first one died on Tuesday, two on Wednesday, five on Thursday, three yesterday, and one this morning. He says they seem well and are suddenly taken and drop as if dead, breathing naturally, and in about half an hour get up and go to eating. The second attack is the one which proves fatal. Une old cow only has died, the rest being yearlings aud under. This loss is a very serious one to Mr. Robbins, as twenty-four head is all that he owns, and the loss of nearly half of this herd is a severe one to him. The disease is entirely new to those who have examined the cattle, and so far as known it has not appeared elsewhere iu this section. SUICIDE AT HUTTE. Mrs. Lammerhart, an Old Time Resi dent, Shoots Herself. flntermountain.] Shortly after 3 o'clock yesterday after noon Mrs. Lammerhart, wife of George Lammerhart, an old time resident of Butte, committed suicide at her residence on Idaho street by shooting herself through the head with a pistol, producing instant death. She has been sick for two or three weeks, and at the time of the tragedy was still in bed. The bullet entered near the right ear and came out at the left temple. The direct cause tor the deed is not known, but it is supposed to be due to depression of spirits on account of illness. Her health has not been good for many years. Mr. Lammerhart is crazed with grief over the terrible occurrence. Crowding Into Montana. [Railway Register.] The completion of the Chicago & North western extention into Montana and to Fort Fetterman will have the effect of leading to the construction of other roads, for the cattle business of the valleys of the Territory is well worth fighting over. The valley of the Nebraska river is the best part of Wyoming Territory, and here to fore the business has chiefly gone to the Union Pacific or up to the Northern Pa cific. The Northwestern is now in posses sion, and the result will probably be the construction ot a branch from the Union Pacific and the building a line south from the Northern Pacific from Fort Custer or in the valley of the Big Horn. The Northwestern is said to disclaim the intention of building further than Doug lass, near Fort Fetterman, its present terminus, but it will be a temptation next year to prolong the line towards or into Idaho. While the through business is hardly worth competing for, there is con siderable local traffic that could be had, besides the prospects for more as the country fills op. The Bear Placers. [Deer Lodge Northwest.] Joaquin A bas cal, Esq.,ofBeartown, came in from there Wednesday. He says, owing to the shortage of water, the placer yield of Bear will not he over one-fourth this year what it was last, although the mine yield as well when worked. The company work ing the Happaranda mine having found the machinery they have been using could only crush two or three tons of rock per day, have procured additional roller ma chinery and are now getting it into posi tion. It appears that the ownership of the mine has never passed from the original owners of the mine to the company operat ing, and the parties in interest were this week endeavoring to arrive at some deter mination of the matter. What the yield per ton is no one bnt the operating compa ny knows, bnt the mine is looking very well. The company has been reorganized and Capt. Rogers is superceded. In this country we are forced by great natural calamities as fire, flood, earthquake or tornado to see hundreds turned ont homeless, but it is a disgrace to the Eng lish government, worse than all the calami ties we have named, to allow 2,000 fami lies in Ireland to be evicted on the verge of winter and turned upon the charity of society, a large portion of which is in little better circumstances. Pennsylvania Association of'Montana. The members of the Pennsylvania Asso ciation met at the parlors of the Grand Central Hotel Monday evening, September 27. The meeting was called to order at 8 | o'clock by President Walker. Secretary Cochran read the minutes of the last meeting and the same were adopted. A number of letters were read by the Secretary from Pennsylvanians iu differ ent parts of the Territory approving of the organization of a Pennsylvania association aud asking that their names be placed on the roll as charter members. Messrs. Reed, Comly and Cochran, com- i mittee on rules for the government of the association, reported a series of rules that were read by sections and adopted. The membership fee was fixed at $2 per year, and the members paying now would receive a receipt in full up to January 1, 1887. No fee «will be 'charged for lady members of the association. The regular meetings will be held on the second Mon days of January (annual election), April, July and October. Special meetings may be called at any time by the executive committee or President-!

Mr. Miller is largely interested in the famous French gulch placer mines, Deer Lodge county, and some souvenirs of his recent trip there are shown in a handful of flat nugget gold —the handsomest specimens of the kind we have seen of Montana production. Speaking of Montanians in the Black Hills, all are spoken of as prospering in the mon etary, mercantile and industrial world, including ex-Sheriff Seth Bullock, ex-Land Officer Sol Star and ex-Indian Agent A. J. Simmons. Star continues to be elected Mayor of Deadwood, while Simmons graces the same office at Rapid] City, and gives everybody a bargain in town lots. Mr. Miller pronounces Helena the metro politan wonder of the West, and predicts for the city unrivalled growth and pros perity daring the succeeding decade of years. We hope oar people will tarn oat in large numbers to hear Prof. Howard this evening on the subject of Manual Labor Schools. The time is coming when this is to become a leading feature in our public school system. It is growing in favor rap idly wherever it has been thoroughly tried under competent management. Oar peo ple want to know about it, for they want the best of everything connected with pub lic schools.

Helena, September 26, 1886.—It hav ing come to the knowledge ot this office that in many places certain land agents and attorneys adopt business signs of a character to represent their offices as gov ernment offices, as an example, the sign may bear the words, "U. S. Land Office ' in bold letters of a size to be readily seen at a distance, adding in very small letters, "business done here" or "papers drawn here," and that the effect and apparent purpose of such a sign is to mislead and deceive the public, particularly settlers and applicants who are uninformed and who often enter these offices, have their papers made out, pay fees and leave their entry money, fully believing that they have been transacting business with au thorized government officers. In view of this, all land agents and attorneys in this land district who use deceptive or mis leading signs or advertisements of any character are hereby notified that the use of same must be forthwith discontinued or they will be reported to the General Laud Office in order that proper steps may be taken to prohibit them from practicing be fore the land department and the local land office.
