Birthday Anniversaries.
Helena is noted for the manner in which
the good people of the city celebrate the
anniversaries of both the young and the
old. Scarce a day passes but some little
one has a birthday that is celebrated to
give the young people a chance to make
merry over the anniversary that proclaims
the child "six years and going on seven."'
However trilling the spreads or the picnic
on the lawn or the simple presents that
are given by friends or'parents, the oc
casion is one of hallowed memories that
are cherished throughout a life time, and
there is no memory so sweet and lasting as
that which in after years reverts to an an
niversary birthday dinner or tea party,
whether they be given to the young Miss
or Master or to the wife, husband, father,
mother brother or sister.
These annual reunions in some houses,
where children are plenty, may be said to
occur several times a year, and where this
is the case they are so much the better for
their frequency and make glad the hearts
of ever so many little angels. To children
of an older age, adults, heads of families,
etc., these anniversaries are as grateful,
and they soften or tone down the fact that
a parent or wife or husband had added an
other year in the score of life's routine.
But leaving all the older members of the
family to rejoice that they are not forgotten
when their birthday anniversary comes
round, we wish to notice the fact of so
many birthday parties given to children in
Helena. The custom prevails, and it is a
good one, and the pleasure given to the
little ones will heap up in many hearts a
love for parents and donors that will last
while life endures, and make the world all
the better that anniversary birthdays are
not forgotten of young and old.
Two Deaths at the Poor Farm.
Two deaths are reported at the poor
farm. One is a child of six or seven years,
the youngest of the unfortunate Coombes
family, ill for the past fortnight of typhoid
feyer. Yesterday the pitiful little boy
breathed away his frail young life and
passed from a world of privation, sorrow
and suffering. Following the boy, a once
stalwart man, the shadow of his former
self, went to his last account. He was an
Englishman of culture named Steele. His
malady was an abcess that sapped his
vitality and reduced him to a skeleton. He
was treated in the hospital until his money
was exhausted, when he became a charge
upon the county. Revs. Kelsey and Webb
and several Christian women visited the
poor farm yesterday and to-day and prepara
tions were made to give the deceased
Christian burial.
The Militia Colonelcy.
By direction of the Governor, special
orders have been promulgated by the Ad
jutant General annulling the election of
S. J. Reynolds as Colonel of the first regi
ment of Montana militia. In the sa
connection officers of the several militia
companies are summoned to assemble at
the office of Brigadier General Warren at
Butte, October 29th prox., and proceed to
elect a successor. The hostility to Col.
Reynolds is said to have been largely in
stigated by Mr. Penrose, who is credited
with having industriously addressed him
self to working up the old Nevada charge
against Reynolds. That is a matter, as
we are given to understand it, in nowise
discreditable to Col. Reynolds.
Military Rifle Shooting.
Sergt. Mitchell, Third infantry, Fort
Missoula, won the division
medal at the Bellevue, Neb., rifle range
shooting. Six of the best scores up to the
third day are reported as follows: Sergt.
Mitchell, Third infantry, Fort Missoula,
Mont.; Private Feeney, Fifth infantry,
Fort Keogh, Mont.; Sergt. Palmer, Third
infantry, Fort Caster, Mont; Sergt. Unger,
Fifth infantry, Fort Totten, Dak.; Sergt.
Wood, Twentieth infantry, Fort Assinni
boine, Mont.; Sergt. Crow, Twentieth in
fantry, Fort Assinniboine, Mont. The
Montana soldier boys appear to lie carry
off most of the honors.
Hustling the Track.
A telegram informs Col. Broadwater that
the Manitoba was last night within forty
live miles of Benton. Track-laying is pro
gressing at the rate of from three to four
miles a day, and providing for all con
tingences Benton will be reached not later
than October 1st.
The Murderer Caught.
George Godas, the supposed murderer of
John Embody, who was foully murdered a
few days ago in Dearborn canyon, was
arrested Iasi night at Missoula. Sheriff
Hathaway has been apprised of the arrest
and will go to-night on the west bound
train to bring the prisoner to Helena.
Big Money.
Larsen, Keefe & Co. received a check to
day on the Montana National Bank for es
timate of work on the Butte branch of the
Montana Central railroad amounting to

The Handsome Structure Which is to
Occupv the Site of the Old
Masonic Temple.
The projected Hershfield block, to occu
py the corner of Main and Edward streets,
judging Ifrom the designs, will be one of
the grandest business structures of the
Capital City. A picture presentation of the
magnificent building appears in the cur
rent number of The Northwest Magazine •
As soon as vacated by the Northern Pa
cific offices the present bnilding (the old
Masonic Temple) will be razed to the
ground and the foundation walla of the
new edifice laid this fall. In the proj ected
block the Hershfield Bros, and Warren

and 25x115. The bnilding will be of three
floors above the basement, each of high
elevation. The ground floor comer depart
ments, to be occupied by the Merchants Na*
tional Bank, will have a broad and beauti

The Printers' Fund.
Two years ago Geo. W. Childs and A. J.
Drexel made a donation of $10,000 to the
Union Printers of America for the purpose
of establishing a printers" home. To in
crease the fund it was determined that on
the anniversary of Mr. Childs' birthday
printers east of the Mississippi should con
tribute the price of 1,000 ems to the fond,
and on Mr. Drexels birthday printers west
of the Mississippi should do likewise. The
13th of September being Mr. Drexel's anni
versary, Helena printers contributed their
qaota. As there may be printers outside
of Helena who may wish to contribute to
the fund, or editors or business men who
formerly worked at the trade, they may do
so by sending their contributions to Geo.
B. Starring, financial secretary of Helena
Typographical Union, who will forward
them to the trustees having the fund in
charge. The fund now amounts to $15,000,
held in trust under good and sufficient
bonds. __
Mortality Among Horses.
A visit to the Dearborn river by Dr.
French, veterinary surgeon, where there
are several bands of horses, one of them be
longing to T. H. Kleinschmidt, has resulted
in a careful examination by the doctor, of
the disease that was reported to be so de
structive among the horses of that region.
Mr. Kleinschmidt says that out of hi*
band of 130 his loss was about twenty,
mostly colts. In his investigations the
doctor examined a number of horses and
dissected the carcasses of others that had
died, and thinks the disease in a great
measure is owing to over feeding of stock
that came through the winter in a weak
condition, and partly foundered themselves
upon the rich grasses that grew so abund
antly in that region. In this way the
horses took on fat very rapidly and became
"The Student"
Is the name of an educational journal
whose first number is upon our table, pub
lished by E. A. Carlton, who, in his saluta
tory, says :
"Theobjectsof this paper is twofold. First
to encourage pupuls to acquire a better
knowledge of English, and, secondly, to
establish a school journal which shall be
medium of communication between teach
era throughout the Territory. As to our
first object, the use of correct English
The tendency in the public schools of the
present time is to relegate English to the
rear, and by English I mean its written
and spoken use. Pupils are taught almost
everyting except how to write and speak
the English language correctly."
New N. P. Offices.
The new office quarters of the Northern
Pacific, on the corner of Main and Grand
streets, are being rapidly prepared for oc
enpation. The interior arrangements and
decoration, under the personal direction of
General Agent Stokes, are advancing to
ward completion. The location is abont as
convenient as could be selected in the city
and the apartments are commodious and
handily adapted to the active daily busi
ness to which they are to be put. It is
probable the elegantly appointed quarters
will be in readiness for occupation within
the next ten days.
Pupils and Population.
There are 800 pnpils already in \
public schools, and there is not a donbt
that this number will be increased to 1,000
within the next sixty days. There would
be a great many more families living in
Helena to-day if there were honsea to
shelter them. We can easily foresee that
there will be more increase of population
and more work of a permanent character
completed, in the balance of this season
than in all that has passed.
New Library Books.
There were seventy-two volumes added
yesterday to the shelve of the Free Public
Library, all of them from the publishing
house of John B. Alden. These books are
especially rich in works of science, includ
ed in Alden"s Science Library. Scott's
"Beautiful Homes"' is a work that will de
light and instruct those interested in archi
tecture and laying out grounds. There are
in the list many works of fiction and a
good portion for yonng readers.
The Penn Yan.
The great Penn Yan Mine, in Jefferson
county, about twenty-eight miles from
Helena, whose wonderful showings by a
ninety-foot shaft have been the talk of the
town, is still on the tapis as one of the
future bonanzas of Montana. The Penn
Yan Mining company, formed a few days
since, has elected the following officers:
H. H. Hill, president ; W. C. Buskett, vice
president ; E. W. Knight, treasurer ; H. M.
Pärchen, secretary and John Maulshagan,

Death by Drowning ol a> Old Timer.
The notice of the death by drowning on
the river below Wardner Junction, in the
Cœnr d'Alene country, of our old neighbor
and fellow citizen, Biddle Reeves, will be
a grievons surprise to all his old friends.
We surely hope that it may prove true, as
later reports indicate, that it was not a
case of murder. Mr. Reeves was a man of
great energy and enterprise, and if his life
had been spared he wonld have recovered
from his financial reverses. Mr. Reeves wr b
a native of Salem county, New Jersey, born
February 5,1831. He followed farming all
of bis life till he crossed the plains in 1864,
arriving in Montana in August of that
year. Here he first engaged in mining in
Holmes' gulch, but in 1867, began farming
on the Prickly Pear, on a ranch of Mr. Mer
rill, the first recorded in this county. He
soon acquired a ranch of his own, and for a
time made a great success and had the best
farm in the valley, the one now owned by
Wm. C. Child. The grasshoppers destroyed
his crops for three years in succession, which
involved him in debt and he lost his farm
in consequence. Mr. Reeves was by birth
a Quaker and a good citizen, who will be
widely mourned for his misfortnnes and
untimely fate.
Among the pioneers of Montana and of
Lewis and Clarke county, as one of our
earliest and most successful farmers, the
memory of Biddle Reeves deserves to be
remembered long, and it seems to us that
if Montana could do no more for one who
had done so mach for her, she should at
least give him a grave in the valley where
he lived longest and spent the best of his
years and strength.
The Disease on the Dearborn.
In a conversation yesterday with Doctor
James French, a veterinary surgeon, who
but a few days ago had returned from an
official visit to the ranges on the upper
Dearborn, where a disease was reported
among horses in that region, a Herald re
porter was informed that a number of
horses had died there this fall, of a disease,
in his opinion, was produced by voracious
eating of the luxurious grasses when the
enfeebled animals were naturally sickly
after a hard winter. It was evident, said
the doctor, that one carcass which he dis
sected showed that the animal died of
pleuro-pneumonia— a resultant, no doubt,
of conjested liver and längs, which fonc
tions had been overtasked by the super
abundance of nutritious grass taken into
the system at the time of the animal's en
feebled condition. The instinct of the
animal or horse sense exhibted in the last
stage of this disease was noticed by the
herders in charge who saw the animals af
fected just before death, go to a certain hill
which they would walk up with head
erect, stopping frequently to take breath
and to rest. This was the last effort of the
intelligent animal before death to relieve
intelligent animal before death to relieve
the sensitive investiture of the chest and
lungs from the pressure of the intestines,
which would be thrown down hill, as it
were, when the animal was walking up
hill. The disease was not contagious but
the herds were generally afi'ected, only
those dying that were naturally in a weak
and enfeebled condition.
The doctor prescribed no remedy for the
horses on the range, which he said, could
not be doctored unless brought under the
halter, and the process of lassoing would
be worse than the disease.
The fine stallion of Mr. T. H. Klein
schmidt, which was prescribed for, was im
proving when the doctor left the Dearborn.
Field and Stream.
The following well known sportsmen
left the city this morning on a fortnight's
outings, bound for the Big Blackfoot coun
try : John Hardwick, Joe Walker, Geo.
Rhoimer, Jim Shook. The party was ad
mirably outfitted with four and six horse
teams, carrying camp equigage, commissary
and other supplies. John Hardwick's
memoranda disclosed part of the cargo of
things, met and dry, and implements of
armament taken along. The list run some
thing in this order : Demijohn, pound
crackers, demijohn, package herrings, demi
john, chunk cheese, demijohn, four fly
hooks, demijohn, eight yards fish line,
demijohn, bow and quiver, demijohn. The
party evidently mean to whip the Big
Blackfoot for its biggest tront, and made
the elk and bear suffer. Hardwick was
over there away back in "65, and knows
where the best fishing is and where royal
game most abounds.
Mining News.
With the news received that the San
Francisco mine at Philipsburg had been
purchased and the money paid, and that
there was enough ore in sight to ran the
mine for eight months, comes also the
news by letter from Superintendent Wm.
Morrow, of the Bonlder Chief, to the
owners that he is down fifteen feet on the
main shaft in eleven feet of ore and no
walls in sight on either side. The ore is
the same as that taken oat at a depth of
six feet, which assayed $61.25 in silver and
$4 in gold. Ten feet of ore has been
strack in the tannel, and no wall has yet
been reached. The property is now open
in eleven different prospects for a dis
tance of 3,000 feet on the Boulder Chief

The wonderful efficacy of Swift'» Specific as a
semedy and cure for rheumatism anil all Mood dis
eases, hag never had a more conspicuous Illustration
than this case affords. The candid, unsolicited and
emphatic testimony given by the venerable gentle
man must be accepted as convincing and conclusive.
The writer Is a prominent citizen of Mississippi. The
gentleman to whom Mr. Martin refers, and to whom
lie Is Indebted for the advice to which he owes his
final relief from years of suffering, is Mr. King, for
many years the popular night clerk of the Lawrence
House, at Jackson.
Jackson, Miss., April 29, 1S87.
Thi Swift Specific Company, Atlanta, Ga. :
OentUmrn —I have been an invalid pensioner for
forty years, avlng contracted pulmonary and other
diseases in the Mexican War, but not till the 1st of
March, 1S75, did I feel any symptoms of rheumatism.
On that day I was suddenly stricken with that dis
ease in both hips and ankles. For twenty days I
walked on crutches. Then the pain was less violent,
but it shifted from Joint to joint. For weeks I would
be totally disabled, either on one side of my body or
the other. The pain never left me a moment for
eleven years and seven months—that Is from March f,
1875, when I was first attacked, to October 1,188*>,
when I was cured. During these eleven years of in
tense suffering I tried innumerable prescriptions
from various physicians, and tried everything sug
gested by friends, but if I ever received the least
lienettt from any medicine taken Internally or ex
ternally, I am not aware of It. Finally, about the
first of September, I made arrangements to go to the
Hot Springs of Arkansas, having despaired of every
other remedy, when I accidentally met an old ac
quaintance, Sir. King, now of the Lawrence House
of this city. He had once been a great sufferer from
rheumatism, and, as I supposed, had been cured
by a visit to Hot Springs. liut when I met him he
told me that his visit to the Hot Springs was in vain
—he found no relief. On his return from Hot Springs
he heard, for the first time, of the S. S. S. as a remedy
for rheumatism. He tried it and six bottles made a
complete cure. Several years have passed since, but
he haa had no return of the disease.
I Immediately returned to try it. In September I
took four bottles, and by the first of Oetober I was
well—as far as the rheumatism was concerned. All
pain had disappeared, and I have not felt a twinge
I have no interest In making this statement other
than the hope that it may direct some other sufferer
to a sure soui'-e of relief, and if it has this result I
am well rewarded for my trouble. I am very re
s|>ectfully and truly your friend.

This is as true to-day as a century ago. Taste
in dress is necessary when one wishes to appear
well dressed. We offer every opportunity for gen
tlemen to be well and. becomingly dressed. All
our goods are selected by gentlemen of acknowl
edged taste in their several departments. Only
the very choicest and most desirable patterns in
Foreign and Domestic Fabrics are allowed on our
counters. Taking this into consideration, also the
fact that our stock is LARGER than other Cloth
ing House in the Territory, and our prices a little
below the market, it is no wonder that we are
doing such a large business. We never have any
special sales, but have the same low prices in every
thing EVERY DAY.
