The death of Mrs: Celia Thrasher, from diphtheria, at Pioneer, is another, and we trust the last, sad incident of the scourge that has afflicted our neighboring town. But a little past seventeen years, recently mar ried to a worthy man, and with life opening hopefully to her, she, who had been caring for others afflicted with diphtheria, was stricken down, and after but a brief illness, died very suddenly. Our neighbors have been sorely scourged with this dread disease. Within the past year there have been 22 cases in and about the town, and the graves of seven in the Deer Lodge cemetery shows how fatal has been the work of the destroyer. We fear our friends do not use the extreme measures of isolation and quarantine de manded to suppress diphtheria. It is a wome disease and more contagious in summer than small pox. While children are especially susceptible toit, even adults advanced in life are sometimes victims. It can be readily conveyed in clothing to remote places, and all persons in contact with cases should use the precaution of changing clothing, or thor oughly disinfecting before going in contact with others, especially young persons. Old damp buildings are especially favorable to its propagation and retention, and cases under such conditions are likely to be most malignant; but the germ may be conveyed and fatal results follow even in the dryest and best ventilated buildings. We trust, wherever this disease has foothold, that every possible precautionary measure will be used to isolate it, to disinfect premises and to closely follow the Rules prescribed by the Board of Health. Twenty-two cases in and bshout Pioneer in a year, and one-third of them fatal, while many more have occurred between there and New Chicago, induces us to urge earnestly, and with our sympathies all aroused in behalf of our neighbors and friends in that region, that they use their utmost exertions to disinfect premises, to t administer prophylactics to children in the ' vicinity of those afflicted, and to stamp out, a if possible, this dread disease which is deso- t lating their homes.

THa Butte free-for-all Saturday drew 5000 people to the Race Course, and Lot Slocum won the first heat in 2:22, breaking the Montana record. The horses entered were Kate Ewing, Ranchero, Conde, Char ly Hilton, Lot Slocum and Little Joe. All had records, from Ranchero's 2:22k down to 2:17;, but the time made was 2:22, .231, 2:25, 2:251 and 2:29, Conde winning the second, third and fifth beats, and the race. Ranebhero took the fourth heat in 2:251, was just get ting to his best work and ought to have won the race easily. The almost universal opin ion was that he was not driven out and In tense dissatisfaction resulted from that and the time made by such a field of bhorses. The Judges, including Mr. Webb, of Salt Lake, who is the best informed, most decis ;ve, and as straight a man as ever set foot in the stand, tried to secure a square race, but were over matched. It is stated there were nearly $60.000 In the pools. worth Knowing. Mr. W. H.

F. SHANLEY. The game restriction went out on the 14th, and the shot gun artists who didn't go out with it started early next morning. We have already seen some nice bunches of birds come in, and the toothsome prairie chicken will be the delight of epicures from now on. Games of chance and skill are plentiful these days and evenings. What with cane rackets, wheels of fortune, short cards, and a new diversion entitled "faro," there is plenty of opportunity to give lucre a chance to change owners. And the chance is taken freely. With all material on hand and a big force of men, the College dormitory is being laid up rapidly and begins to show its fair pro portions nicely. Early in the coming term it will be completed and afford excellent facilities for the increasing number of stu dents. The convocation of the Missionary Dio cese of Montana will convene in St. James church, Deer Lodge, on Sunday, August 26, 1888. The convocation sermon will be preached by the Riaght Rev. M. N. Gilbert, Assistant Bishop of Minnesota. Services at l a. m. and 8 p. m. Other services as an nounced. Notwithstanding the large rainfall of the season, the grain and bhay product of the val ley is going to fall below average, and in some places will not much exceed a half crop. The straw crop is especially short. There has been too much cold weather for it to make growth. There are some exception ally good fields, but speaking generally the crops are as above stated. Manager Maguire on Tuesday canceled the dates for Lewis Morrison's "Faust" and "A Dark Secret" at Cottonwood Hall Thurs day and Friday evenings of this week, and says "they will appear later." The cancella tion is a good one, as after an all afternoon at the races, and fine moonlight evenings' people generally are indisposed for the the - ater. We hope, however, the Morrison Company will come here when they get back from their "outing." Mr. Benj. Franklin, Manager of the Frank lin Mining Co., was in town Monday. The tunnel on the Jumbo is now in between 200 and 250 feet, with about 100 feet vertical depth. It shows two or three good streaks of ore, some of high grade, the ore ranging from 8 to 24 inches on the hanging wall. An upraise will soon be started for air, and the vein will then probably be cross-cut. Two shifts are being worked. Mr. Franklin, who is not at all of an excitable nature, thinks the developments very satisfactory. We forgot to mention last week that on the morning of the issue the week before the editorial wheelbarrow, which we had adver tised as lost, strayed or stolen, was standinog across our door when we made our morning advent on the street. Advertising does pay. The long lost wheelbarrow was restored in fifteen minutes after the paper was on the street. We don't want to mention any names in the connection, but John O'Neill is en titled to a great notice with our thanks when he gets ready to quit this world of sin and wheelbarrows. The managers of the several Racing Asso ciations and the Montana Union Railway company, having joined purposes, have made the transportation of the race horses and the impedimenta appertaining to them a great success. The hundred or so horses from Batte, with all material of the track camps, were loaded on 21 cars and brought here as a special with as much care as would be bestowed on a special car of railroad in spectors, and in three or four hours after leaving Batte were in their stables on the Deer Lodge track. They wall be transported in the same way to Helena, thence back to An acon da, and thence to 8pohatne Fal s. The people receiving mail at Race Track think they should have a daily mail, and we hope they will get it. They removed the postoffice to the railroad siation, saving the government considerable money, with that object in view. It is really more convenient for mail clerks to deliver mails daily than three times a week, and in holding over mail for the tri-weekly service it frequently gets delayed beyond that. All the difference in cost would be in the mail train stopping there, or slowing up, four days in the week, and the people would be greatly advantaged by the change. Postmaster Kinney is mak ing application for the more frequent serv ice, and we hope he will succeed. Farmers who are alive to the importance of procuring the best and most improved Farm Implements, should call at Cockrell's Implement House and examine his stock. He has the exclusive agency for Deer Lodge county for the following Standard Goods: J. I. Case Engines and Threshers, McCor mick Binders and Mowers, Empire Disc Har rows, Planet Jr. Cultivators and Seeders, Case Sulky and Walking Plows, Glidden Barb Wire, Solid Comfort and Economy Plows, Strowbridge Sowers, Cooper's Sheep Dip, Schuttler Wagons and the enuine Hol lingsworth Hay Rakes. In addition he con stantly keeps on hand a large and well. selected stock of Harness and Saddles, Bale Ties, Scrapers, Wheelbarrows, Grindstones, and in fact everything usually kept by Im plement Houses. 977 tf LODGE & BEAUMONT. Open Out Their Fuine New Meat Mar ket. Lodge & Beaumont opened this week in their new building and have an elegant meat market. They occupy a floor 20x80, the meat market having in the rear storage and manufacturing rooms. The hanging hooks are of the most approved make of galvanized iron, built into the wall, with the best make of chopping blocks, cooling boxes, etc. Opening off the market is a Stevens' Patent cooling room 9x12 feet, with capacity for nine tons of ice overhead. In this a normal temperature of 40 deg. is maintained, and if necessary, by the use oJ salt, it can be run down to freezing. In it meats, fruits, vege tables, etc., can be kept in the finest condi tion during the hottest weather. Lodge & Beaumont have also added to their line of goods fruits and vegetables, which will always be kept in season and sold wholesale and retail. The proprietors have been labor ing under disaalvantage recently in their temporary quarters, but with the splendid building complete on the first floor are now prepared to accommodate their customers in first class style. Drop in, and as the Boulder man says in the Age, they will be"gadto meat you." LIME. LIME. Havi ng appointed Messrs A.

A. Seeond Amanal Meeting at Deer Loedge Amn 14, 15, 18 and 17,18 as, The Second Annual Meeting of the Dee Lodge Fair & Racing Association opened ol Tuesday, August 14th, 1888. The day was a beautiful and pleasant as could be desired to the spectators, it being neither too hot nog too cold, but for good speed it was a lute too cool. About 3 o'clock a wind came up from the northeast which at times was a little toc strong for the horses to pull against. , The track was in most excellent condition and all horsemen expressed themselves high. ly pleased with it. The improvements at the track and the general arrangements for the entertainment of people received the ap proval of the visitors. Only one complaini was heard, and that was the lack of stall room, which of course will be remedied in time. The first was a running race, one-quartes mile dash, and which was called at 2:4C o'clock. The following entries were made: Jim Miller, r c-J. P. Sutton. Sorrel Charley, a g-James McDonald. Carl S, s g-Wm. Dingley. Ocheko Bill-Henry Coombs. Weasel-J. W. Kingford. Mary Filly, b f-Robert McDonald. Sunday, b g-Dick Crawford. Sunday was withdrawn before the race and the others took positions in the order named: Ocpjeko Bill, Carl 8, Mary Filly, Sorrel Charley, Weasel, Jim Miller. Con siderable time was occupied in getting a start, but finally they came flying down the track and passed .under the wire in 211 sec onds, Jim Miller first, Ocheko Bill second, Sorrel Charley third and the balance close behind. Pools sold about even on Jim Miller and Weasel. Fifty-six Paris Mutuals paid 80:30 on Jim Miller. TROTTING, 3-MINUTE CLAss-$250. The following were the entries made: Fantasie, b m-Sam Scott. Dennis Ryan, ch s-F. Fancher. D K W. gr g-C. R. Fickett. Murray, b g-Lee Shaner. Carrie C-Wesley Walters. Col. Bradshaw-C. G. Bradshaw. The last two were withdrawn. The race was called at 3:50 o'clock, and the horses took position as follows: D. K. W., Dennis Ryan, Murray and Fantasie. A good start was had and D. K. W. led off. Fantasie broke on first quarter and lost ground. D. K. W. kept the lead throughout without a skip and came in winner in 2:37. Fantasle second, Dennis Ryan third and Murray fourth. Owing to the stiff breeze there was hard pulling on the back stretch. Pools were selling for about $15 to $5 in favor of Fantasie. Mutuals paid $7.40 on D. K. W. on first heat. 8BCOND HEAT. A good start was made. Fantasie went off her feet on the first quarter but came down quickly. D. K. W. led all the way round and into the home stretch, Fantasie slowly gain ing on him. On the home stretch Fantasie broke into a run and pa9sed D. K. W., the driver evidently not trying to stop her, and in that position they went under the wire. The beat was given to D. K. W. and Fan tasie set back to third. Murray second, Dennis Ryan fourth. Time 2:32. Mutuals paid on D. K. W. $11:85. Fantasie was such a strong favorite that no pools were selling. THIRD HEAT. Fantasie and D. K. W. led. On the first turn Fantasie pocketed D. K. W. and got a good lead, which she kept to the finish. On the home stretch Fantasie was held back, but came under the wire in 2:27, Dennis Ryan second, D. K. W. third and Murray distanced. No mutuals were sold on this heat, Fantasie being favorite. Considerable dissatisfaction was expressed as to the time announced in this heat. The time keepers gave it 2:271, when the outsiders had it 2:37;. It is probable the time keepers made a mis take. FOURTH AND LAST HEAT. Fantasie had the start and broke on the first quarter, and at the half mile post fell behind D. K. W. On the upper turn Fan tasie passed D. K. W. on a ran and kept the lead, and went under the wire in 2:39. The heat was given to D. K. W. on account of the running of Fantasie. Dennis Ryan second. SUMMARY. D. K.

This was race No. 2, but was sandwiched in between heats of the 3-minute race. A very large number of entries were made for this race, but for some reason or other all were withdrawn except Tempest Belmont, a c, O. B. Jeffries, Butte, and Peri, br f, E. Pinkham, Idaho. In the first heat, with an even start, Peri soon took the lead and main tained it to the finish-time 3:03. The second heat was a repetition of the first, time 3:05, which gave the race to Peri. FOURTH RACE-RUNNING, 1-MILE DASH. Entries: Broadchurch, b g-R. E. Bybee. Arles, s c-Morehouse & Blivens. Jubilee, b g-J. F. Bybee. Pat Curran, b c-Whitmore Bros. This was the most exciting event of the day. A great deal of time was consumed in starting, not the fault of the riders, but of the horses, which were difficult to control. Broadchurch had the pole, Arlee 2, Jubilee 3 and Pat Curran 4. Finally they were sent off in a bunch. Broadchurch soon got the lead, but after entering the homestretch was passed by Jubilee, and in that positien came u[nder the wire-Jubilee 1, Broaachurch 2, Pat Curran 3 and Aries 4. Time 491. Jubilee was barred from the Mutuals, which paid $7.60 on Broadchurch. Pools sold about $5 to $4 in favor of Curran for third place, which he won, both Broadclurch and Jubilee being barred from the pools. The judges for the day were James B. McMaster, John Bielenberg and W. Fry, and their rulings and decisions gave general satisfaction. Timekeeper Wm. B. Miller. SECOND DAY. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15, 1888. The day was all that could be desired. Early in the afternoon pools began to sell on RACE NO. 5--RUNNING, three-quarter mile dash, and sold rapidly up till the race was called, in the proportion of about $30 on Daniel B., $12 on Bogus and $3 on Keepsake. The nominations for the race were: Daniel B., s g-Moorehouse, Blevins & Co. Bogus, ch g-W. H. Babb. Keepsake, b m-R. E. Bybee. Purse $200. Keepsake secured the pole, with Daniel B. second, and Bogus third. The judges for the day were selected as follows: George Burns, of Helena, Win. A. Fry and John Bielenberg, of Deer Lodge, with W. B. Miller as time-keeper. Twenty minutes were taken up in getting a start. Finally they were sent away, Bogus soon taking the lead. Before the first quar ter was reached Bogus was about 20 feet ahead of the other horses, but from that be began to lose ground. After the home stretch was reached Daniel B. crowded Bogus to the inside fence and got in ahead of him. Keepsake came up on the outside and Bogus took position behind In the center. In that way they came down the stretch under whip and spur until within 20 feet of the wire, when Keepsake made a dash and came in ahead. Time 1:18. Here the utmost excitement prevailed. "Foul" was claimed on all sides. The judges, after considering the matter for half an hour, and being satisfied there was a foul, declared it a dead heat and ordered the race run again. At this decision immense applause was given from the spectators. The utmost ill feeling existed between the owners of the horses, but the judges were firm and determined that a fair race should be run or paunishment should follow to the extent of the law, and they so announced from the stand. The jockeys were called up and told what the re sait would be if they were caught in aay fool. The second heat was called at 3:4, and a good start was had. Bogus led, Daniel B. seond and Keepsake third, until the turn in the home stretch, when Daniel B. crowded Bogus, and before the wire was reached Keepsake came up and took second place. Winner, Bogus; Keepsake 2d, and Daniel B. 3d. Time 1:19. lells of "foul" were now heard from all directions, and there may have been, but if so it was intangible to the judges. The race was given to Bogus, whose mutuals paid $13.85. RACE No. 6---uxeNNo-oNE mILS DAMS, for a purse of $200. This race was called'at 4:40, with the following entries: Duffy Winters-W. H. Babb. John Hall-D. B. Wells. Rapetta-W. P. Matlock. They were assigned positions in the order named. One other entry had been made, but was withdrawn. A good and quick start was made, Bapetta soon taking the lead, Duffy Winters 2d, and John Hall 3d. In this posil tion the horses went round the track, Ba petta coming in winner a neck ahead of Duffy Winters. Time 1:47. Mutuals paid $6.05. The next race called was the TROTTING-FRBIEFOB-AL4L, for 2-year-olds, 650 each, $200 added-2 in 3, in which the following entries were made: Hattie D-Marcnus Daly, Anaconda. Mary S-Lee Mantle, Butte. Tempest Belmont-C. B. Jeffries, Butte. Juno-W. H. Raymond, Belmont Park. Satinwood-A. C. Beckwith, Evanston, Wyoming. Vllette-A. C. Beckwith, Evanston,Wyo. All were withdrawn except Hattie D. and Tempest Belmont. In the first heat, with a rfae start. Hattie D. led easily, being ield back on the home stretch, and came in a slow winner in 3:18. The second heat was won also by Hattie D. in 3.06. It seemed as if no time were attempted to be made in this race, as on the last half mile of the second heat Hattie D. traveled at a 2:42 gait. At the beginning of the second running race a change was made in the Judges, Mr. Phil. E. Evans taking the place of Mr. Burris, to whom objection was made by some outsider, though he was an excellent judge. Channcey Kane, the driver of Fantasie in the 3:00 class trot on Tuesday, was, by the Officers and Directors of the Association, and judges, barred from the track and the privileges of the quarter stretch during this meeting, for a foul committed in that race. He took the punishment good-naturedly. Keepsake was fined $25 for going off the track contrary to the order of the judges, after the first heat in the three-quarter run ning race. THIRD DAY. THURSDAY, AUGUST 16, 1888. Another beautiful day. The increased in terest is shown in the greater attendance. The programme provides for four races, as follows : Running, Hotel Stakes, for 3-year-olds- free for all-$50 each, $200 added- mile dash. Running, $200, half mile heats-2 in 3. Trotting, $400, 2.28 class. Running, $250, 11 miles. A special running race, 600 yards, is also made. Early in the afternoon pools began selling rapidly on the RUNNING RACE-FOR 3-YEAR-OLDS, and sold in about the proportion of $30 to $15 in favor of Nevada. The entries for this race were: Nevada, ch f-Moorehonse, Blevins & Co., Butte. Dwarf Regent, ch g-James B McMaster, Deer Lodge. Warpeake, b g-H B Baker. Hilda, s f-W H Babb. Susie 8, s m-A Y Stevenson, Boise, Idaho. Oregon, ch c-B E Bybee, Portland, Or. Superba, b f-R E Bybee, Portland, Or. Humbolt, br f-D R Wells, Portland, Or. All of the horses were withdrawn except Nevada, Superba and Oregon, who were given positions in the race in the order named. At 2:15 the horses were called to the track, and at 2:45 started. On the back stretch Oregon led, but on the upper turn all three were together. On the turn into the home stretch Nevada passed to the front and came in in 1:47-, Superba close behind, with Oregon about 40 feet in the rear. Complaint of fool was made by the jockey of Superba, but it was without avail, as the judges thought the race was fair. The judges were Phil E Evans, John Biel enberg and W H Raymond, of Belmont Park, Madison county. Mutuals paid $11.25. Immediately the horses for the half mile heats were called to the track, the entries being as follows: Sunday--H R Baker. Bogus-W H Babb. Red Elm--S M Laduke. Ida Glenn--Horehouse, Blevins & Co. John Hall-D R Wells. Positions were assigned them in the order named. At 3:25 the jockeys were called up in front of the stand by President McMaster what might be expected if any of them were gnuilty of a foul, and they were then sent to the starting point. FIRST HEAT. Aboat 25 minutes was consumed in start ing. At 3:50 o'clock the flag dropped and away they went. The horses kept close to gether until the eoutcome, when Red Elm went under the wire in 481, Runday 2d, Bogus .d, Ida Glen 4th and John Hall 5th. The distance pole was only fifteen yards, yet the horses were so close that none were dis tanced, as was the expectation. Mutnals paid on Red Elm 651.35. The sale of pools now increased in about the following propor tiloans: Bogus $30, Ida Glen $10, third choice $5. and $3 for the field. SECOND HEAT. At 4:20 the horses were again sent to the half mile post. Again the crowd became impatient at the time consumed in starting, but finally the horses sped away, and made a close race from the beginning, Bogus coming in 1st, Red Elm 2d, Ida Glen 3d, Sunday 4th and John Hall 5th. Time 50. Mutuals paid S9.20 on Bogus. THIRD HEAT. Bogus and Red Elm were sent to the start .- 9:55, the others being ruled out.

She was so far ahead on the upper turn at one time that it was thought the others would be distanced, but she slackened her pace on the home stretch and came in winner in 2:32#, Carrie Belle 26, Contractor 3d and John F 4th. Ollie led in the pools. The judges in this race were W A Fry, P E Evans and John Bielenberg. THE SECOND HEAT was called a few minutes before 6 and the horses sent off at once. Contractor was be hind at the start and broke as soon as he went under the wire, and before he could re cover lost a hundred yards of ground. Clara Belle led all around until the half mile poet was reached, when Ollie grappled with her, and from that point every inch was contested by them to the finish, Clara Belle coming in winner by a neck, Ollie 2d, Contractor 3d and John F 4th. THIRD HEAT. Contractor got a bad start and at the same time flew off the ground, leaving him so far behind that he never recovered his distance.

Excellent Nominations for Munlelpal 015f Pursuant to call, a meeting of citizens of Deer Lodge took place at the Court House on Monday evening last, and was called to order by O. B. O'Bannon, Esq. On motion, James H. Mills was elected Chairman, and Thomas Morgan Secretary. The objects of the meeting being stated to be the nomination (by those assembled) of a Mayor and six Aldermen for the town of Deer Lodge, to be voted for at the election to be held Tuesday, August 21,1888: It was moved and carried that the meeting proceed to nominate a Mayon, whereupon several gentlemen were placed in nomina tion, and a number whose business prevented their candidacy, declining. Messrs. J. C. Robinson and O. B. O'Bannon were appoint ed tellers and a vote taken on the nominees H. R. Whitehill, John O'Neill and Geo. W. Carlton. Mr.Whitehill receiving a majority of the votes cast on first ballot was declared the nominee of the meeting, and on motion of Mr. Cummings, the nomination was made unanimous. On motion, residents present from each of the several districts, as shown on the plat accompanying the application for incorpora tion, assembled and reported to the meeting the following recommendations for Alder men, viz: J. C. Robinson, H. H. Zenor, l.t dist.; John O'Neill, Lew. Coleman, 2d dist.; D. J. McMillan, James M. Bailey, 3d dist.; whereupon the reports were received and on motion the persons named declared the nominees of the meeting for Aldermen of the town of Deer Lodge. On motion the Chair was instructed to ap point an Executive Committee of five to fill any vacancies that might occur on the ticket, and the Chair appointed as said committee Messrs. F. R. Bill, O. B. O'Bannon, E. L. Bonner, Willard Bennett and George W. Carlton. Adjourned. The ticket above selected is a good one. Mr. Whitehill is a capable, public-spirited and worthy gentleman, and the Aldermen are good representative men of like charac ter, will sustain him in good government and do all they can for the benefit of the town. These nominations do not prevent others from being made, but the ticket is so well selected that we anticipate it will re ceive the cordial support of the public. We notice that White Sulphur Springs, after a recent town election, found a number of its officers-elect were ineligible, and hence the organization is delayed. It would be well for the Executive Committee to see that there are no ineligible candidates on the ticket, as it is desirable to get organized and get a thousand dollars worth of street work out of vagrants yet this fall. There will be fewer tramping "vags" and rounders on this line for the county to pay board for after Anaconda and Deer Lodge get organized and they are sentenced to hard labor. Renews Her Youth. Mrs. Phmobe Chesley, Peterson, Clay Co., Iowa, tells the following remarkable story, the truth of which is vouched for by the res idents of the town: "I am 73 years old, have been troubled with kidney complaint and lameness for many years; could not dress myself without help. Now I am free from all pain and soreness, and am able to do all my own housework. I owe my thanks to Electric Bitters for having renewed my youth, and removed completely all disease and pain."

Payette Nurseries, Idaho, has been in the valley some time taking orders for nursery stock, and has trebled his sales of last year, when he made his first canvass here. Not withstanding the hard winter at th, . . a.., o*.w ..` iuugnt last spring has sub stantiated the claim that nursery stock raised near by, at nearly the same altitude and lati tude, and subjected to about the same cli mate, should grow better than that brought from more remote places and raised under greatly different climatic conditions. It has done remarkably well, and the prices are lower than other nurseries have been charg ing. Whitney Bros. deliver in the spring. Persons desiring stock in their line should send for a circular to Whitney Bros., Pay ette, Idaho. ATTENTION COMRADESI Northern Pacific Excursion Rates to the G. A. R Encampment at Columbus, Ohio.

THg OSBORNE NEW NO. a LIGHT-RUNNING Mowers, and all Osborne Extras, now at John O'Neill's. 990 tt G. A. R. POINTS. Some Items About the Twenty-Second En campment at Columbus, O. The encampment begins Wednesday, Sep. tember 12th. The grand parade takes place Tuesday, September 11th. Comrades should reach there by Monday, September 10th. Fare via the Northern Pacific from Butte, Helena, and all common boints in Montana for the round trip is $62.65. These tickets are good to go on September 5th and 6th, and good to return, when stamped by the agent at Columbus, Ohio, until October 19th. Montana comrades desiring to accompany the Commander-in-Chief's train should pur chase tickets via the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railroad, as the train will go over that road without change of cars, running from St. Paul to Columbus, 715 miles, in about 24 hours. Double berth, large enough for two persons, on sleeping car from St. Paul to Columbus on that line is about $3,00. Application for sleeping berths on that line should be made beforehand to W. H. Dixon, A. G. P. A. at St. Paul. The Northern Pacific Grand Army train will leave Missoula, Helena, and interme diate points on Wednesday evening, Sept. 5th, and reach Minneapolis so all can visit the Exposition on "Soldiers' Day," Sept. 8th. At 6 o'clock the same evening the train will leave for Columbus. Headquarters for the Montana and Dakota delegations will be in the Board of Health Room in the State Capitol building, where all comrades are requested to call and regis ter on arrival. Although 250,000 visitors are expected in Columbus it is believed all can be comfort ably provided for. All hotels, boarding and lodging houses have agreed not to ad vance their rates during the encampment. Meals in private families and boarding houses are 25, 35 and 50 cents, and lodging 50 cents. The hotels charge from $1.50 to 54 per day. Dining tables in the camps will accommodate 12,500 at a sitting, and lunch counters, at regulated prices, afford room for 7,000 more. Arrangements had already been made, Aug. 9th, to accommodate 40,000 Grand Army men. Applications for accommoda tions can be made from now on to Alfred E. Lee, Secretary of General Council, Colum. bus, Ohio. It is in contemplation, if a sufficient num ber of comrades apply, to charter a Pullman car at Helena to Columbus and return, re taining it there for lodging while in the city. Information as to this can be obtained of Commander Junius G. Sanders, Helena, Montana. The excursion rates are not limited to members of the G. A. R. The rate Is open to all on the dates mentioned. This will probably be the greatest of all the reviews of the Grand Army of the Re public. The Old Guard is passing away. The falling of the leaders is noticed as when great oaks fall in the forest, but as leaves flutter down in the autumn forests the sub alterns, and the rank and file in proportion, are dropping down unnoticed everywhere. There will never again be so many assembled as there will be at Columbus next month. The season is propituous, the people hospit able, the city central and accessible. The delegates from Montana to the en campment are James H. Mills, Deer Lodge; M. P. Wyman, Glendive; Alternates, R. E. Fisk, Helena; James E. Calloway, Virginia City. The first named of these has not seen one hundred old comrades together since the Union armies disbanded. He hopes to be present when the Assembly is sounded for the 22d Encampment, and trusts many others of the Montana comrades will also avail themselves of perhaps the last opportunity. It is within the reach of many. Try to go. Overhauling Masotlc Hall. Mr. J. N. Fox, with a force of assistants, is raising the Masonic Hall building three feet, and will drop the Hall floor two feet, thus greatly improving it. We recollect when its construction was considered-nearly twenty years ago, when Judge Knowles, Judge Dance, Elwell, and a dozen other old timers now gone or removed, discussed through long hours the proportions and cost of what was then to be, next to the old Court House, the finest building in Deer Lodge. and when it was completed what regal balls were held in its splendid and commodious frst floor, with the privilege of the hall for promenade and music. We asked nothing better then. Deer Lodge "pointed with pride" to its magnificent Masonic building, our hearts were content, and our Butte friends driving forty miles through snows and the alkali swamps of Lost Creek to at tend on state occasions,were filled with envy when they entered its portals. Conditions have changed-somewhat. The building is not up to the requirements of the times, and must be overhauled. But that done, it will be very comfortable quarters, even for the Masonic fraternity, which is now growing much more rapidly than ever since a Lodge was first instituted in Deer T.odge. A Little Girls' Entertainment. Seven of the little girls of Deer Lodge. who originated the enterprise themselvets will give an entertainment at Cottonwood Hall on Monday evening, August 20th, for the nenefit of the churches of this city, consisting of a doll show, tableaux and music. Admission 50 cents; children half price. Tickets for sale at Coleman's. No reserved seats. atop That Cough. Great danger often results from neglected coughs, and it will not do to experiment with medicines boomed by imported testimo nials of parties whose very existence is ques tionable. The proper thing to do is to al ways keep in your cupboard a bottle of Acker's English Remedy, which has proved so satisfactory to our own fellow citizens: Read this home testimonial: DaEER LODGE, Oct. 8, 1887. I have been suffering some time from a painful chronic cough, and have used Shiloh's and other medicines without experiencing the least benefit. Recently I purchased a bottle of Acker's English Remedy, which has cured me. I firmly believe that for affec tions of the throat and chest it possesses marvelous curative powers.

The funeral of Mrs. Thrasher, daughter of Mr. Theo. Hess, took place on Wednesday, the remains being conveyed from Pioneer to the Deer Lodge cemetery, accompanied by a large number of the citizens of Pioneer. The funeral services were held at the grave by Rev. D. J. McMillan, D. D., who made a touching address on the young wife whom sorrowing and stricken friends were consign. ing to the grave.
