John Bain, "the King of the Dry Forks," has sold his wool, 16,300 pounds at 9 1-4 cents. Here's looking at you, John. Found—A new shoe, between Dupuyer and Birch Creek. Owner can have same by paying for this notice and proving property. Mrs. Nat Collins, the cattle queen, passed through town yes terday en route to the mining country at the head of Lake Mc Donald. Fred. C. Brown and wife arrived in Dupuyer the latter part of last week from Great Falls. Mr. Brown is an A No. 1. blacksmith and has been placed in charge of S. L. Pot ter's shop. R. L. Magonigal, who has re cently purchased H. A. Kennedy's store at Blackfoot, was in town yesterday on business. He reports business as very good in his section of the country. H. S. Wright and Peter Joyce, of Choteau, visited our enterpris ing town the fore part of the week. This was their first visit here and were very favorably impressed with our location. The Dupuyer base ball club "will meet at Leech's sheep shearing pens next Sunday afternoon for a jiraotiet* game. All players should be present as this will be the last practice the ciub will get before the Fourth. Joe. Kipp and those who are as sociated with him in the mines north of McDonald lake have ship ped in a large amount of supplies, and are cutting a wagon road from Belton to the mines. The move ment of the Kipp syndicate is taken as an indication that earnest de velopment work is to be carried ou. There are large bodies of copper silver ore that are easy to mine, and promise well.—Columbia Falls Columbian. Chairman Jones was in town the fore part ofjthe week and to an Acantha representative stated that the county commissioners werei considering plans for bridges to be j built this fall over Sheep creek, | near Dupuyer, and the Muddy j creek, near Bynum. Both of these streams arc dangerous to cross at certain seasons of the year and should have been bridged long ago. The Acantha is glad to see that the present board will not allow this business to be longer neg lected. a The Choteau and Dupuyer base ball clubs will again cross bats on j the diamond, this time at Choteau on the Fourth. Since playing here i a couple of weeks ago, the Choteau | boys have played aud won a game ! from the students at Ft. Shaw, and have had almost daily practice, and will undoubtedly put up a much better game thau when here. The Dupuyer club, on the other hand, have not had much practice; they have all been at work and have had no time to play ball. Still, they have not been altogether .idle. They have dug up from a neigh boring sheep camp two or throe new players who are by fat superior to any player they have yet tried. They will have a new pitcher and catcher to relieve Manix and Mcintosh, and will probably have a new short stop and third baseman. This new battery is, in the lauguage of the diamond, "out of sight." In ad dition to throwing the in and out and the up and down curves, a beautiful zig zag ball will go over the plate that will strike terror to the hearts of the uninitiated Cho teau batsmen, Our boys will go to the county seat on the fourth confident that they will win the game by a score of at least 2 to 1— if they don't they need not come back. Mrs. H. P. England visited with friends in Choteau this week. Glass wash boards—the latest J thing out—are for sale by J. W. McKnight. F. P. Cowell has several thous-j and pounds of tine potatoes which he wishes to dispose of. The contract for building the new school house at Choteau has been let to W. F. Burgy, oi Great Falls.

Wool is selling in the Great Falls market at from 9 to 11 cents, with excellent prospects of a raise later in the season. Chas. Thomas aud Fred Walt man expect to leave Birch Creek in a day or so for a prospecting trip across the range. They will be gone all summer. Raphael Morgan leaves sometime j during the coming weik for New' York with 130 bead of line horses, j While away he will visit with a; ! : sister at Quincv, Ills., and will tryl to induce her to move to Montana ! Dupu- ; with her family. Thomas Miles arrived ii yer to-day from Canada. six weeks ago the report reached here that Tom had been kicked to death by a horse, but his appear ance here at this time would indi cate that he is a pretty lively corpse. The shearing crew south of town "put up a job" on one of our prominent sheep men recently. They had shorn a couple of bucks and informed the p. s. m. that it was a fleece taken from one of his yearlings. He has since worn out sixteen lead pencils figuring up how much wool his sheep will shear. The homestead entries made dur ing May at the Helena land office exceed in number those for any months during the past two years. No months in the same time has seen so mauy homestead entries proved upon. The entries for this ii ont h promises to be even more numerous. The same activity is uoticible in desert land entries. This indicates that the public lands iu Montana are settling up.— Inde pond<?r» t..
