VOLUME X1L HAMILTON, MONTANA, WEDNESDAY. JUNE 4 1902. NUMBER 32 DARBY TOWN'S BRIGHT FUTURE. Carrent Notes—Rural Free Delivery After July irt—Tslklng Politics Darby Will Celebrate. It bas been a long: time coming, but Darby's day is drawing near—a bright future is in store for the ,up-valley town and all that part of the county. The railway has penetrated to within about eight miles of Darby. Thus far the extension of the road has progress ed slowly—following the fast failing timber—but now only a fringe of tim ber, along Lost Horse, intervenes between the end ot the r oad and the Como reserve. Then will come a jump of four miles and Darby will be reach ed and a shipping station established almost before you know it. The mom ent this happens real estate values, population and the products of this fruitful section will double. Contig uous to Darby there are some of the very finest orchards in the whole val Jey. An immense amount of hay and grain is raised yearly in that vicinity. Skirting Darby on the west lies one of the finest tracts of virgin timber in the whole northwest. This tract is owned by the A. C. M. Co., and is es timated to contain three hundred mill ion feet of pine—sufficient timber to keep the crews of camps 1, 2 and 3 busy logging for the next ten years. The up-valley ranchers have hereto fore been handicapped by their re moteness from railway transportation but with that obstacle removed they will be placed on an equal footing with all other points in the valley and which will redound to their great bene fit. Darby would furnish an ideal loca ion for a creamery. Considerable in dividual dairying is .being carried on now. The best ranges of the valley are adjacent to the village and num erous other natural advantages a bound. On Friday evening last the people of Darby observed Memotpal Day. Headed by the Darby brass band, a -procession formed and marched to the cemetery where appropriate services were held in memory of those gone be fore. Darby proposes to celebrate the glorious Fourth in good old-fashioned style. Committees are hard at work arranging for the entertainment of the people of the upper valley on the day wf celebrate. On July 1st a rural free delivery between Hamilton. Darby, Sula and Alta goes into effect. Between Ham ilton and Darby there will be 105 boxes. On and after the date men tioned these people will have their mail delivered free of charge at their front gates every week day of the year. Clagett Sanders has the contract be ,tween Hamilton and Darby; E. J. Ker lee from Darby to Sula. and Ed Mor rison between Darby and Alta, for the ensuing four years. A stump counting contest has been going on in Darby vicinage for some time past and the denizens thereabouts are becoming mildly interested in the outcome. M. J. Haley and assistants represent the A. C. M. Co's., interests while Timber Inspector Chadwick and W. H. McCoy are taking care of the government. The Belgian hare industry has sev eral devotees at Darby and who are meeting with very good success in pro pogating the speoies. Albert Ha«imond and G. W. Solleder returned from a trip into the Clear water a couple of weeks ago. They made the return trip on snow shoes and found the beautiful about five feet deep on the range. The journey of 75 miles consumed seven days. They report game still abundant in this, the finest remaining hunting preserve in Horth America, but that the ruthless slaughter of the past few years is fast thinning out the big game. Mr. Ham mond estimates that last year fully 500 elk, including 140 bulls, were slaugh tered In the Clearwater district within an area of 50 miles square.
