Editor Tribune: Captain Garretty 13 all wrong wh^n he says "when Cus ter divided his forces on tlie 25th of June he took Charley Reynolds with him." I was with Reno's command and so was Charley. I rode with him, talked with him and went into the fighit by his side. The captain is quite correct when he says "The Custer monument has the names of all the officers and men who were killed with Custer, and among them is the name of Charley Reyn olds." Thiat don't prove anything. The names of Captain Mcintosh, Ldeut. Hodson and Dr. DeWolf aire on the monument. They were all killed with Reno. The monument is "in the mem ory of officers and soldiers who fell near this place. Fighting with the Seventh TJ. S. cavalry against Sioux Indians, A. D. 1876." H. R. PORTER. Bismarck, April 11, 1902.

Prouty, at the head of the Prouty Live Stock company at St. Paul, has just returned from a trip to the Mouse river country in the northwestern portion of this state, where the main ranges of that company are located. Mr. Prouty has had cattle in the Mouse river county for the past eighteen years and declares that never before has such high water prevailed as exists at the present time. He says no one can have any concep t'on of the conditions that exist there, with the exception of those who have been on the ground. The greater por tion of the land, he states, is under water, and the situation is very critical ii his estimation. Up to date he says there have been no heavy loses of stock, the losses in fact have been very light, the stock weathering the two storms that have occurred this spring in good shape The danger in the present situation is that a severe storm strike the country, the stock would be totally un protected, and without doubt the losses would be enormous. Should the weather continue good no trouble is apprehended, as the water is gradually subsiding and, the grass is' already starting in good shape. The stock win tered well and is now strong «nd in first class shaipe in every way to stand the high water which narrows the grazing land available very materially. The stock men who have put up hay in quantities are heavy losers in that con nection as the most of the hay stacks are under water. Therefore there is no fodder available with the exception cf grass, and the high water makes this very limited at the present time. Mr. Prouty is of the opinion that the water throughout the Mouse river country is higher than it has been since it was first seen by a white man. In speaking of the general cattle situa tion Mr. Prouty said that the cattle men in the Mouse river country would scon be compelled to move anyway. The new settlers are flocking to that erction of the state in perfect hordes. Practically all the land ifl taken up now, and the new comers are fanning P. E.
