St. Mary's Academy.
This seminary for young ladies, located
at Salt Lake City, Utah, opened its fall
term last week to a largely increased at
tendance of pupils. The Sisters of the
Holy Cross, who conduct the institution,
have made numerous improvements in the
school buildings during the last vacation
and added many new facilities. The
institution opens this year in better con
dition than ever before.
The various departments of learning find
increased numbers of pupils and each is
presided over by skilled instructresses,
chosen from among the sisters. Besides
the intellectual culture given, young ladies
at this academy receive daily instructions
in painting, music, plain sewing and
general duties of domestic life, so that the
pupils leave with the ability to become
useful as well as ornamental, members ot
The Salt Lake Tribune of recent date
says of St. Marys :
"The language classes are understood to
be unusually large this year : besides the
ordinary classes, those pupils will have the
advantage of language reunions, in which
only German and French will be spoken.
"The musical advantages are unexcelled
with a large music hall, sixteen pianos,
harp, organ, guitars and other instruments.
The lovely homelike buildings, high ceil
ings, heated by steam, are to be lighted by
gas next week. The beautiful grounds are
a paradise.
"Lxact attention is paid to ladylike de
portment, oalisthenic exercises and lessons
in dancing, the spirit of order and disci
pline, the training of the young; this is the
life work of the Sisters.
"There is an excellent library of over
2,000 volumes for the use of the pupils, and
ample philosophical and chemical appa
ratus." .
Mining Item.
From our old friend Iver Wolfi, just in
from the Columbia mine, over beyond the
Stemple district on the Big Blackfoot
slope, which other miners call the Iver
Wolfi district in his honor, we learn that
things are booming in that district. The
syndicate of T. C. l'ower and others, who
have had a bond on the Columbia 'mine,
have made payments as called for by the
bond and are pushing development on the
property. The shafts and levels show a
strong vein of good milling ore that will
pay well to work and encourages further
development. Beyond the Columbia, on a
small tributary of the Blackfoot, known as
Seven Up Pete gulch, Mr. Johnson and his
partner are opening other mines, in which
Messrs. Wolff and Hammer have an inter
est. They have built themselves a snug
cabin and stored it for a winter's campaign,
running a tunnel to strike a group of
mines, all of which promise well. There
may not be any more Drum Lummons in
that district, but there are plenty of good
workable and paying mines that for gener
ations to come will support a thrifty and
prosperous camp and make good returns
lor the woik and capital invested.
A Suit Over Cord Wood.
Judge O'Donnell yesterday decided a
case that had been pending in his court
since the previous day, involving a dispute
between two wood haulers of Mitchell
gulch, that required the intervention ot
the law to settle. Ernest Jarvis, a French
man, brought suit against Mike Juhas and
others tor payment for 30 cords of wood,
which, Jarvis alleged, defendants had taken
from his possession without compensating
him therefor. In court the defendants set
up a counter claim, and after a good deal
of mixed up testimony the Judge finally
decided in favor of the plaintifi', awarding
him damages in the sum of $38.50, -the
price of ten cords of wood. The attorneys
were S. A. Balliet for the plaintiff and
Craven Brothers for the defense. The de
fendants took exception to the ruling of
the Justice and gave notice of an appeal to
the district court, The witnesses were
bound over and the case will remain in
statu quo until the district tribunal shall,
have been called upon to decide the matter

An item from a Butte paper is copied to
day stating that work on the Helena,
Boulder Valley & Butte road is progressing
from Calvin's ranch toward Butte. This is
incorrect. The construction work on this
line stops at Calvin's for the present and
no contracts have been let for work beyond
that point. It is doubtful if the present
season will see this road any nearer to
Butte than it is at present, though con
tracts may be let in time to allow of a
little grading before winter sets in. The
only railroad building now doing in that
section is that of the Montana Central,
which is pushing work on all parts of its
Helena-Butte branch.

Buildings Commenced and Pipe Ar
riving Every Day-Plenty of
It is learned from Mr. Gates, of the new
Helena Water Company, that the progress
of work in all departments of the Wool
ston enterprise is satisfactory in the ex
treme. Installments of pipe are arriving
steadily, and the work of distributing them
has commenced. Four miles of pipe are
already distributed in various parts of the
city, and six car loads more are in waiting
at the depot for distribution ; another ship
ment of six car loads will be here next
week. They are ready now to commence
pipe laying, and will begin as soon as the
men arrive from the works to make the
joints. The pipe is manufactured by the
National Tube Works, at McKeesport, Pa.,
and is of a peculiar quality known as
Kalameined sheet iron. It is a compound of
iron and zinc and the advantages claimed
for it are that it will not rust and has eight
times the tensile strength of cast iron.
This accounts for the apparent thinness of
the pipe, which has caused some comment.
About half the requisite quantity, which is
13 miles in all, is now on the ground.
The reservoir is slowly taking shape as a
water storage place and is advancing as
fast as could be expected.
At the pumping station the greater part
of the work is being done. The founda
tions for the brick and stone building,
which is to inclose the engines and boilers,
a structure 7*. by 30 feet in dimensions, are
laid and it is expected the building will
be completed within thirty days.
The huge well is now sunk to a depth of
twenty-five feet, and the water comes in so
fast that the big pump is kept working
day and night. It is estimated that about
two millions of gallons of water are
pumped out of the well every day into the
creek. When the well has gained suffi
cient depth it is calcnlated to sink drive
wells in the bottom of it to secure a greater
flow of water. There is no doubt that the
water eupply will be plentiful and more
than enough to furnish all parts of the city
The company are spending money right
and left and receive regular installments
from the east to pay freight charges on ma
terial and^working expenses here. The
force of men employed is sufficient for pres
ent needs,but when pipe laying commences
it will be largely increased. At present the
pay roll of the company shows disburse
ments of about $2,000 per week.
All that is hoped for now is for a contin
uance of the present weather and late
frosts and the company will have water in
the city for nse before winter.
Sewers and Pavements.
From an old resident of onr city and
one who may perhaps become a resident
again, we are painfully reminded that
Helena is behind the age in the matter of
providing sewerage and macadamizing her
streets. Such reminders from friends
ought to be received in the spirit in which
they are uttered. These are not new and
unconsidered topics in Helena, though we
have little to show any intelligent
study of the subject. We continue to
haul in gravel on Main street and occa
sionally to haul out mud, as is done in
every little country village in the world.
Fortunately for our soil and climate the
streets are not so bad all the time as might
be expected. Main street ought be either
paved or macadamized at once and the
cost of it charged against the adjacent
property. Even the streets of Deadwcod,
Dakota, with one-third of the population
and one-seventh of the wealth of Helena,
has its main street macadamized, and is
kept so clean that no special street cross
ings are needed or allowed.
As to sewers, none know better than we
do onrselves how utterly inadequate is
what little we have done. The big flume
through the center of the gulch is little
better than an open one. The openings in the
plank coverings allow the escape of all the
deadly exhalations. Nearly every house
in town has its private cess-pool, and from
most of them the foul air finds its readiest,
if not only, escape back into the house.
Until our charter restriction of indebted
ness was reserved it seemed impossible to
do anything effectual. But what is being
done now ? Is anything under way or
consideration to meet this long deferred
and crying complaint? We hear to-day of
cholera having arrived in New York. Do
we want to invite its presence in Helena?
We are breathing, drinking and eating
poison every day, and the only wonder is
that our death rate is so small.
Tapped His Money Belt.
James H. Miller yesterday swore out a
warrant for the arrest of one Herman Al
gase, on the charge of stealing $100 in cur
rency. Miller and Algase occupied a room
together in Brown's block, on Warren
street, and yesterday morning after the lat
ter's departure, Miller discovered that $100
in greenbacks which he carried in a buck
skin belt ou his person had disappeared.
His suspicion at once fell upon Algase, and
as circumstances pointed to him as the
thief, Miller informed the officers and got
out a warrant for his arrest. It is sup
posed the suspected party left yesterday
morning for the east and telegrams have
been sent down the line to have him ar
rested on the train. As yet no arrest has
been reported.

Stevexsyille, Sept. 22, 1387.
Editor Helena Herald:— TheDAii.v
Herald of the 17th inst. contains an arti
cle stating that Amos Buck raised 3,000
bushels of apples this year. The writer
wishes to have the statement corrected, as
he has only about thirty trees bearing fruit
iu bis garden, a sample of which was sent
to Wallace & Thornburg, of your place,
simply to show what we can grow in our
little burgh ; and the results are that we
are in receipt of an order from Ike Green
hood for three car loads of apples, to be
shipped at once and to name our price.
Very respectfully.
To All W hoin this May Concern.
To the Editor of the Heraj.d.—T he
attention of the public'is hereby called to
a blind man who finds difficulty in getting
a hearing as he goes from door to door
seeking work in his trade. He is no tramp
nor beggar, but simply asks for work ; but
as bis work is that of a clock maker and
repairer, people think a blind man asking
such work must be a fraud. I have em
ployed him and he has given satisfaction,
and I call the attention of the public to
him in his laudable effort to earn his own
living. F. D. KELSEY.

A Singular Occurrence on a Helena
Street !»v Moonlight.
Last evening, between nine and ten
o'clock, a singular occurrence transpired in
Helena, that has sufficient of the uncertain
about it to imbue it with an air of mystery
and carry with it a suggestion of social
scandal. A gentleman friend of the Her
ald was taking an evening stroll up one
of the fashionable residence streets of the
capital, enjoying the balmy air under the
feeble rays of the new moon. The street
was partly illuminated by the moonlight,
but in the shade of the thickly clustered
houses the darkness of Erebus prevailed.
Just as the gentleman stepped within the
dark shadow of a large dwelling, his
attention was attracted by seeing
a buggy wheel suddenly around
the corner in front of him, drawn along by
a span of spirited horses. The buggy had
scarce turned into the main thoroughfare
when the figure of a man, hitherto unper
ceived, was seen to spring suddenly from
the shaded sidewalk, jump to the horses'
heads and Beize the flying animals by the
bridle. Our friend, the pedestrian, came
suddenly to a halt, to watch the develop
ment of such a singular departure. He
was himself standing in the shadow and
could see all that transpired unseen. The
adventurous individual brought the team
to a standstill and as he did so the driver,
a well dressed gentleman with a silk hat,
called out—
"I must demand an explanation for this
singular conduct."
"You need no explanation," returned the
man at the horses' heads. Then, address
ing a lady who was in the buggy, "you had
better get out and come with me."
"I will not get out ; I don't want to," re
turned a feminine voice from the recesses
of the vehicle.
Again the driver cried : "I insist upon
having an explanation of this unwarranted
"There is none needed,'' replied the man
who had stopped the buggy. "You know
perfectly well that that woman is my wife,
and you had better let her get out and
come with me."
This was said in a determined manner
and seemed to bring matters to a focus, for
the lady, after some whispering with her
escort, alighted from the buggy and walked
off with the man who had claimed her as
his wife. The man in the buggy whipped
up his team and drove off down the street
in silence, while the couple walked slowly
away in the opposite direction.
The darkness successfully veiled the
principals in this nocturnal rencontre, nor
did the tones of their voica betray their
identity to the involuntary spectator of the
scene ; but from the peculiar character of
the adventure our informant draws the
conclusion that the SDectacle he witnessed
last night was the unsuccessful termination
to a contemplated elopement.
A Lump of Bullion Found Buried in
the Castle Mountain Mines.
Messrs. Newman and Hughes came in
from White Sulphur Springs last evening,
bringing with them a lump of metal weigh
ing about 1,200 ounces, which they un
earthed while prospecting in the Castle
Mountain mining district, near that place.
It bad evidently been hidden in the past
by some one who intended to return and
claim it, and the finders thought they had
struck a piece of rich bullion. They sent
it at once to the United States Assay Office,
where it was tested for gold. The result
showed but a trace of the royal metal,
much to the disappointment of the owners.
This morning it was melted and cast into
a bar, which will be assayed at once. The
bar bears the appearance of copper and sil
ver combined, the former being greatly in
the preponderance. It is thought an assay
of it will develop over 90 per cent, ot cop
The mass of metal was found buried in
the earth, and some thought at first that it
was part of a meteor which had found a
bed in the soil of the Castle Mountains ;
but the more probable theory is that it was
the product of some melted copper ore,
which the manufacturer cached with the
expectation of exhuming it in future. The
moneyed value of the mass is compara
tively trilling.

A communication from W. N. Holden,
the poor farm superintendent, announced
that fevers and bowel complaints were pre
valent among the patients there confined.
Whereupon the Board ordered a thorongh
renovation and cleansing of that institution.
This morning the board busied them
selves in examining bids for furnishing gas
fixtures for the court house and deciding
upon the number and size required for the
different apartments. There were four
bids in all—three from Helena and one
from New York. Though not positively
settled, the commissioners seemed inclined
to-day to favor the bid of Sturrock &
Brown, of this city.

Will Play the Helenas.
The Inter Mountain says: The challenge
from the Helena base ball team has excited
discussion among the Walkerville and
Butte boys, and it will probably be ac
cepted formally in a day or two. The old
team is somewhat handicapped by the loss
of several playeis, notably Sam Moftet, the
pitcher, who is now playing with the
Indianapolis club. For this reason the
sentiment of the players is in favor of ac
cepting the latter proposition contained in
Vance 's challenge, i. e., to play a friendly
game for the championship and allowing
one hundred and fifty dollars for expenses.

Jackson, Miss.. April 29, 1S87.
The Swift Specific Compact, Atlanta, Ga. :
Oentlemrn—I have been an Invalid pensioner for
forty years, having contracted pulmonary and other
diseases in tho Mexican War, but not till the 1st of
March, 1SÎ5, 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
lie 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 1,
1875, when I was first attacked, to October 1, 1886,
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
benefit from any medicine taken internally or ex
ternally, I cm 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. But 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 HotSprings
he hoard, 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 j ears have passed since, but
he has had no return of t-ie disease.
I immediately returned to try it. In September I
took four bottles, and by the first of Octooer I was
well—as far as the rheumatism was concerned. All
pain had disappeared, and 1 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 source of relief, and if it has this result I
am well rewarded for my trouble. I am very re
spectfully 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.
