B. Coe, who is now in Missoula coi nty looking for an oppor tunity to invest in a fruit farm, states that the ranches in that county are gen erally perched upon hill sides at an angle of 45 deg.. and the only level spot he has thus far seen sold for $24000 last fall. One can buy "orchard homes" of 5 acres at the rate of 8200 per acre, with the prospect of waiting four years for the appearance of an apple blossom. The climate is lovely, but on the whole vye believe Mr. Coe will pine foi the boundless prairies of the east side. At the regular meeting of Dupuyer Lodge No. 43 A. Ü. U.

The clerk informed him that all the rooms w?re occupied, but one, which had two beds divided by a curtain. He said a woman occupied one of the curtained apartments, but the Choteauite could have the other if he desired-Our fellow citizen accep'ed tne offer and went to bed at 11:30. At 11:32 he reported to the clerk tnat the woman was dead. "I knew it," was the reply; "but how did you come to Und it out?" j j ^ lvin ^ W. i. Palmjr, soejial Unite! States attorney in Indian depredation cases was in Helena last «r nek attending to the claim of the estate of Malcolm Clarke deceased against tae government. Tae claim is oasal up m ta3 ajao.i of a numoerof Piegans, who went to his ranch near tbe i;.outh of Pric.tly Pear canyon, on the nignt of August 23rd, 1869, murdered Clarke, shot his eon Horace, who recovered however, aud now Lves near Midvale on the Blackfeet reservation, and stole all tae stock on the ranca. In 1891 Joseph N. Knack, public aJ mioiBtratior applied for letters of ad ministration on the estate of Malcolm Clarke, and these were issued. H i filed a statement of tae numiir of horses and cattle driven off by the Indians, tae value as 813,213. Tae peti tioa stated tnat the next of kin «/ere Helen P. Clarke, Horace Clarke, Isabel Dawson, and JuJita Patterson, children _ .. of Malcom Claake, and Cath-Co-Co Ma, his wife.

Mr. Palmer saya another hearing vvill be had in Helena probably nex t month. BYom Helena Mr. Palmer vvill come to j the northern pan of the state, to inves tigate other Iudiau depredation claims Angora Goats Raised in Mont-iiia Some time ago there was considerable talk in the Montana press regarding the raising of Angora goats and it was thought that the industry might be profitably pursued in the state. It is a fact, though not widely Known eveu by our own resideuts, that Angora goats have been raised in Dawson county for ! the past ten years. They were brought here by Emory à Morgan aud are being run by John Shaffer, of Redwater. The original number of animals was 300 head, and they have increased but very little since they have boen here, though it is claimed that they have not been looked after very closely. The price usually re ceived for the hair is from thirty to fifty cents per pound, but the owners have been offered as much as seventy five cents per pound for it. While the goats have never been a great source of profit, ; they have easily paid all expenses for keeping them aud were thoir raising made a business of itself and as much attenti u devoted to them as to the rais ing of other stock it might be made a profitable venture. ^ . 4 ' as """ Girl Wanted.
