HARRY KELLY IN HELENA.
Democrat Man Shows Mother-in-law
Sights of the Capital City.
Harry J. Kelly, of the Fergus Coun-i
ty Democrat, but well known in ever'
Montana town, passed through Helena
today en route to the Bitter Root val
ley, accompanied by his mother-in
law, Mrs. B. F. See, who lives near
Hamilton, but who has been visiting
her daughter in Lewistown.
Mr. Kelly has worked on every con
siderable newspaper in the state, large
ly in the capacity of a compositor, and
until recently has been joint owner in
the Fergus County Democrat, says the
Daily Record of Helena. H.> is still
connected with that excellent news
paper as foreman of the coinposinj
room, but has disposed of his interest
He states that the Democrat is pr«
paring to construct a new $10,000 builc
ing and will equip it with a muci
more modern plant. Fergus count',
he says, is going forward by leaps and
bounds and everyone is in the heyday
of prosperty.

band, she came to Helena in 1864, lo
cating in Grizzly gulch, just south <f
the city. The following year she witi
her husband went to Madison count;,
where they engaged in the cattle bu
iness, but shortly afterward they mo'
ed to the Bitter Root section, on Sleet
ing Child creek, and have remain'd
there ever since. Her husband his
been one of the leading cattle breedirs
of that portion of the state since flat
time and at the age of 76 is still as x
tive and healthy as he was thity
years ago.
Mrs. See is now 68 years of age ;nd
with the exception of passing throigh
the city two weeks ago, en route to
Lewis town, has never visited Helina
since she left here over forty yiars
ago, during which time Helena has
been practically built from a few
frame shacks and a few tents, int* a
city.
With her son-in-law she visited irar
ions points of interest this moriing
before taking the westbound train anc
marveled at the trensformation hat
