Forty-eight miles from Livingston and eight miles from Gardiner, along the line of the Northern Pacific rail road, which takes tourists into the Yellowstone National park, a company of enterprising men is investing more than $100,000 in placing modern conviences in the immediate vicinity of what are said to be the finest hot springs in the entire northwest, the intention being to make the spot one of the most favored resorts imagin able, both for health and pleasure. in in it ______________________ Already contracts have been let for j as the construction of a G5-room hotel, T uses, and a pa two plunges and hath houses, and a Pipe system for conveying the waters] 0f the hot springs int0 the b(,,pl and ,and the bath houses.

A Picturesque Spot. A steel bridge is being built across the Yellowstone river at a cost of $14,000, and this will bring the dis tance from the station to the hotel one-quarter of a mile. The company owns 305 acres of fine land, located between the river and the mountains, which, it might he said, are at the very hack door of the hostelry, and for scenery and beauty of surround ings the new resort can he equalled in very few places a tion tlie to the by ! j One unique feature of the plans is that a hot house will be built and, heated by the hot water which flows from the springs, will ho utilized for the growing of vegetables of all kinds in the winter time. With due atten tion to the culinary department, tlie management intends to raise live stock upon a portion of tlie farm to insure the meats for its table. Parts [ of the tract will be devoted to fruits ; and outdoor vegetables as well. Wonderfully Curative Powers. The waters of Electric springs have heen amalyzed hv Dr. Emil Starz of Helena, state chemist, and the cura tive properties, as told by the legends of the Indians, who employed them first in the treatment of diseases, ahe forne out by his report. The waters from one spring are helpful and cura tive in cases of dyspepsia and stomach troubles, and those of the other one for rheumatism, nervous trouble and many other ailments. The officials of the company which has undertaken the project are Living ston men, and the principal office of the company is in Livingston. The officials are: Dr. F. C. Corwin, presi dent; W. G. Norman, vice president ; J. H. Hefferlin, secretary. These, with N. H. Hefferlin and Richard Randall, form the board of directors. The company has a capital stock of $175, 000 in $100 shares; of this $50,000 will be reserved in the treasury for the present. | MINISTER MAKES FIND. I When .lie Rev. T. S.
