HIartman, Butte has been designated by the authorities at Washington as a pen sion examining point. Heretofore the local veterans of the civil war have been compelled to go to Helena for the pur pose of being examined on their applica tions for original or increase in pensions, but hereafter this trip will be unneces sary, as a Butte board of medical examin ers has been created. This pleasing in formation was conveyed in a Washington message received last evening from Sen ator Mantle by B. N. Beebe, past com mander of the local Grand Army Post. The dispatch read as follows: "Examin ing surgeon appointed at Butte. Inform veterans who have recently been ordered to other points for examination to return the order to the commissioner of pensions requesting examination at Butte if more convenient."-Standard.

A Rich Strike Reported in the Blooming ton-"On to Royal!" TIE NEW NORTIIWEST has it from re liable authority that a large body of ore has been struck in the Bloomington, and that the prospects for that mine never looked so bright as now. A short time ago the mill was shut dowu for lack of fuel, and it was reported that the eastern managers had shut ap shop and retired from the camp. Since then, however, John Manley, a good practical miner, who is now superintendent of the mine, has been doing some development work; and as a resultof his skill and knowledge of mining, a body of ore is now in sight of sufficient dimension and richness to place the Bloomington in the field as a formidable rival to her near neighbor, the famous little Royal. If the strike proves as good as is reported, it is pre sumed the Bloomington people will now push work on their property with re newed energy and operate on a larger scale than ever. In addition to the Royal and Blooming ton, there are quite a number of other properties in the district that have been worked during the winter, and it is stated by well-informed men of that camp that the coming season will witness more ac tivity than was ever known in the histo:y of the district. The greatest drawback to the develop ment of the mines of that district is the lack of a good wagon road through to the Royal and Bloomington. Of course cap ital is needed to take hold of the differ ent propositions; but with a good road into the district from the east side, it would be an easy matter for people seek ing investment in mining property to visit the several mines and investigate for themselves. This paper has always maintained, and still maintains, that the natural outlet of that district, especially that portion lying north and east of the Royal, is into the Deer Lodge valley. The people of that district believe they have a great future before them, and they would like to see the road to Royal completed as soon as possible. A prominent citizen of that camp said to the writer the other day: "The people of Deer Lodge will stand in their own light if they fail to complete the road as quickly as possible." Will they do it? We believe they will. Awarded Highest Honors-World's Fair. "DR. CREAM BAKING POWDll MOST PERFECT MADE. A pure Grape Cream of Tartar Powder.

An admission fee of 10 cents will be charged for children, 25 cents for ladies, and 50 cents for gentle men. Our merchants in every line of busi ness report the spring trade opening up much better than last season. An unusu ally large amount of seeds-especially grass seed-has been sold by our deal ers. The ranchmen of this valley are be ginning to realize the superiority of the tame grasses over the native, and are turning their attention to alfalfa, timothy and other valuable varieties. For the past week the weather has been warm and the snow is rapidly going off in the hills, much to the satisf&ction of mining parties, who no doubt are anxious to get to work on their various properties. Even the prospectors are very anxious to work and we need not be surprised to see during the season of 1897 much new and unexplored territory brought into notice in the vicinity of Deer Lodge. Engineer Davis and assistants were en gaged four days this week in surveying a new water ditch for Peter Valiton. The ditch,-which is to be four miles in length, starts from the mouth of I)empsey creek and is designed to cover a portion of Mr. Valiton's land on the west side of the river. Mr. Valiton is now ready to let a contract for the construction of the ditch. See notice elsewhere in this issue. Joe Whitworth, manager of the Bonner Lumber Co., reports considerable activity in the lumber trade the past two weeks. Several large orders h ., been tilled for ranchmen, and others in this vicinity contemplate building this season. The company has received a number of cars of lumber and building material the past few weeks, and the planing mill has been put in operation to replenish the stock of dressed and finisLing lumber. The.year 1897 starts out much better than last and Mr. Whitworth is getting ready for an unusually good lumber trade this season. Best Cough Syiup. Tastes Osod. Us ja tims. SONb tts. MARX EASTERLY. An Interesting Item Concerning an Old Placer Miner of Deer Lodge. We have received a copy of the Pointer, published at Mineral Point, Ohio, which contains an interesting item concerning Marx Easterly, one of the old time placer miners of Washington Gulch. Marx has "stayed" with his proposition at Washing ton for a long time, like a number of other "old boys" of that camp, and THE NEW NORTHWEST s18 always pleased to record any good fortune that may come to any of them, knowing that it is richly deserved. The Pointer says: Frank Dieringer a few days ago re ceived a fine large photographic picture of his wife's cousin, Marx Easterly, sit ting at the door of his Rocky, Mountain cabin, at Washington Gulch, Mont. His faithful dog, apparently a very large and powerful animal, is reposing on a massive "cut" of wood sawn from the trunk of a huge Montana tree. The dog's head is resting upon his master's knee-a pair of faithful companions who would die for each other, no doulbt. The man and the dog, together with the cabin and its ex terior appurtenances, present a pictur esquely interesting view indeed. Mr. Easterly is about 62 years old and a bach elor. He has been in the far West since early in the '50's, prospecting and mining the precious metal. His fortune has varied with the exigencies of the times alternating with thousands and nothing. His last streak of luck, a few weeks since, netted him and his partner a cool $831,000. By the way, we just now notice the pro file of his "pard" dimly revealed, at the window, within the cabin. Mr. and Mrs. Dieringer value the picture highly. It was accompanied by a late copy of THE NEW NORTHWEST, a newspaper pub lished at Deer Lodge, the county seat. We are also pleased to notice in the columns of the Pointer that at the recent municipal election held in that town there were but two parties in the field,"Citizens' Free Silver Ticket," and the Republican ticket, and that the free silver ticket won the' battle. The victory moved the Pointer to declare that, "Free silver is still on deck at Mineral Point." We hope our Buckeye friends will keep it there. THE CITY COUNCIL.

Spring Time Is when nearly everyone feels the need of some blood purifying, strength invig orating and health producing medicine. The real merit of Hood's Sarsaparilla is the reason of its widespread popularity. Its unequalled success is its best recom mendation. The whole system is suscep tible to the most good from a medicine like Hood's Sarsaparilla taken at this time, and we would lay especial stress upon the time and remedy, for history has it recorded that delays are dangerous. Biliousness Is caused by torpid liver, which prevents diges tion and permits food to ferment and putrify in the stomach Then follow dizziness, headache, Hood's insomina, nervousness, and, if not relieved, bilions fever ills or blood poisoning. ood's 1]iiL stimulate the stomach, I /ipstbon, lvet. 5eits. Sokb lýý A BIG ENTERP'RI1..E The Hollanders Will Build a Large Canal in Sweet Grass Counfy. Situated on the Yellowstotie `water elope, i2 nilles north of Big T1imber, is a fine irrigation enterprise" covering tho;u. sands of acres of fine land, says thes_ Rocky Mountain Husbandman. This lt terprise is the property of the Holland tr rigation Canal company, and is one of the leading canal projects of our state. The Holland Irrigation Canal company was organized in 1895. The canal taps' the Big Timber creek about 15 ".Wailes from Big Timber. The first mile riun along a side hill, on which mtle three. flumes have been constructed; the next mile runs on level country where the first cultivable land is reached; the next mile is along another side hill, at the begin ning-of which a drop of 40 feet is taken, For the next nine miles the canal runs<i over fairly good ground, along the line of which many fine farms are to be found. It is the intention when completed to have the canal 16 feet wide on the bottom with 4-foot banks. The canal at present has about 8 foot banks. The company has a capital of $150,000. The president and promoter of the enterprise is A. Wormser, who, with eastern parties have undertaken this vast scheme. This land under the canal is to be taken up by the Hellanders exclusively, all of whom have the privilege of working on the canal. The estimated length of the canal when completed is about 25 miles, and will cover a country surprisingly rich, both bench land and bottom land being found. About 75,000 acres of land will lie under this canal when completed. The settlers are taking up only from 80 to 160 acres each, and will devote themselves for the most part to the dairy business, in which line it is worthy to note that Hollanders are very successful. About 100 people are already located and in a few weeks more are expected from eastern points. Alfalfa is the crop of this section and with the many streams and springs to be found, a better location for the cattle in dustry is hard to find. A church, school and cheese factory are soon to be built on a new townsite known as Wormser City, right in the heart of the colony. The railroad company, who own con siderable land under this scheme, are co operating with commendable diligence and a bright future is in store for this new enterprise. A store and postoffice are already located, and a tr-weekly stage is in operation from Big Timber. A large acreage will be broken up this year and another season will change the entire looks of this location. CASTO R IA For Infants and Children. The fae- - iimll ios $40,000 SHEEP DEAL. Flock Masters at White Sulphur Springs Sell 10,000 Head. One of the largest sheep deals that has taken place in Montana in a long time was consummated Saturday morning last between Spencer, Mayn & Heitman, of this place, and W. M. Rea, jr., of Trevor, Wisconsin, Mr. Rea purchasing 10,000 head of fine wethers from the above firm. The fine flock consists of 6,000 four-year olds and 4,000 three-year olds, a very su perior flock of open wool sheep, of the Cotswold grade. The price paid was $3 per head after shearing; paying $5,000 down to bind the bargain. The lot is to be delivered at the railroad at some point between Big Timber and Billings be tween the 27th of June and July 10. The sheep will be driven to the railroad be fore shearing and thus carry their wool to market. This flock sheared over 100, 000 pounds of wool last year, and will shear from 11 to 12 pounds each this year, which at 10 cents per pound will easily net the owners $1 per head for each sheep, or make the flock bring the for tunate owners the round sum of $40,000. This is a nice sum to receive for a single flock, but they are choice and the pur chaser will no doubt do well with them -Rocky Mountain Husbandman. It is reported that some of the hog raisers in the vicinity of Kalispel re cently fed their hogs on squaw fish and suckers. Later they killed the hogs and sold the animals in *'wn. When the pork was cooked there was a villainous smell of second-hand fish, while the taste was so bad as to be indiscribable. Fish fed pork is no longer marketable there. The enterprising farmers about Par:. City are agitating a movement to start a co-operative cheese factory at that place. 8100 Reward S100.
