Little Wolf, big Indian of the Chip pewa persuasion died a few days since at the advanced age of one hundred and nineteen. He was an inveterate smoker and a great lover of "tangle-foot."

We do not expect to bo with you, boys on the glorious Fourth and we trust that you will not disgrace us by taking in too much "booze." We may not be feeling very well on our return, and if we are not there is no telling what we might ssy about yon the week following- Just fol low onr illustrious foot-steps and keep sober. The engineers of the Chicago, Mil waukee and St. Paul, under the charge ot Mr. W. Dunbar, arrived here on Tuesday of last week. This is merely a prelim inary survey and may or may not mean business, depending in a measure, we presume, on Mr. Dunbnr's report. He be gan the survey about 15 miles south of Columbia, and passes six miles west of Columbia, almost on a due north line until a Bhort distance below the mouth of Beaver Creek, when the line diverges suf ficiently to the east to enter the valley in Sec. 80, of 137-63. This line passes abont 14 miles west of Grand Rapids. Mr. Dunbar,who has been ever nearly the whole of Dakota, says the James River Valley contains the cream of Dakota. The editor of the Northern Pacific Far mer knows all about raising chickens. Only a few weeks ago he paid S. S. Gar dner and Ghas. 8tuart of his city an enermons price for a dozen blooded hen's eggs, and put them under one of his "best hens." The hen was a good setter and stuck to the nest so closely that it died of starvation \n less than two weeks. Another hen was given in charge of the nest, but like her predecessor, starved to death. Hall, mistrusting that a job had been put on him, examined the eggs, and to his astonishment discovered that they had been boiled. *u Wheat and oats, report of acres sown by J. W.

The so-called Peak Family gave an en tertainment before a small and much dis gusted audience in tbis city last Wednes day evening. While we do not desire to unduly criticise the performing of this un wholesome and almost defunct gang of pro fessionals,we do take some degree of inter est in remarking that they are pronounced by some of our Dakota exchanges as be ing guilty of dead beating several print ing bilk and. other bills in vicinity of Mitchell. These reports may or may not be true, but there is one thing sadly ap parent that is, that tbe illustrious Peak Family Ufa sadly degenerated during tbe past few years. One or two more trips will bring them down to the lowest round in the professional ladder, from which they will drop into tbe loathsome kennels of obscurity to rise no-more. The origi nal Peak Family, with one or two excep tions, have exchanged their bells'for gold en harps long ago, and are now,.no doubt, giving free entertainments to the celestial inhabitants of tbe New Jerusalem. Bismarck Takes off Her Hat. The Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paal Railroad Company have located their line from Big Stone Lake to Jamestown, as was stated in the special edition of the Tribune of May Ttb. would be the cise. The engineers, who have just completed the work of location, visited Bismarck and left here yesterday. Their return a ok to a an a a Southern Minnesota line of that road will undoubtedly be located to connect with the North Pacific at Bismarck. The Chicago & Northwestern company are al9o locating a line to Jamestown, aift will locate a lino to Bismarck. James town, however, will advance so rapid I uoder the iniputa given it by the con struction of these new lines that it will become a prominent candidate for the capital of Northern Dakota, shoutd the next congress divide the Territory, as it indoabtedly. will..

A GBATHIC DESCRIPTION OF THB BAD by LATfVU. CAMP OK THE LITTLE MISSOURI. Bad nds, D.T., I June 13th, 1880. On Jane 2d oar camp was astir by tho report of Indias depredations on the ex tension of the Northern Pacific R. R. We had little time to prepare ourselves for tbe march, and as alacrity is the only art in war to give success to Indian expedi tions, we were soon in the saddle, and en route for the scene of hostilities. At Msndan a special train was in readiness, and a few hours were spent in loading eur stock and stores. At three o'clock, everything being in readiness, we dashed away over the newly made track, some ere this dreaming of the pleasant past, others brooding over tbe dark looking future, none howler giving a moment's thought to tbe cause of all this worry- the Indian. During the early hours of the morning we passed the towns of Comanche, Sweetbnar, Spar, and Blue Grass, and reaching Canvass City, we en joyed onr morning meal. A few miles more and we reached the terminns of the road, where we unloaded onr freight and went into camp for a short time. This place is known as Young Man's Butte. We continued our march over some very fine country, camping at night on Green River. The evening ot the 4th found us at the Big Heart, with "golden showers pour ing down." Hnfe we again rested for a night. While crossing a bridge near Plummer's Ranche, a wagon and six mules fell into the BtTcaai, one mule baioe drowned. The evening of the 5th w« reached Lord & Fogarty's camp. Her« we learned of some stock having been stampeded Indians, and rumors of their having killed some two or three men. We remained in this camp till tbe 8th, when we again took up tbe marcb, arriving at, and entering permanent camp on the Little Missouri. Every day some scouting parties arc on the road, so that if any Indians are around we shall soon khow it. The hands on the extension seem much afraid of the Indians, and are ever ready tor a stampede should the news of "their coming" reach thorn. Grading along the line progresses slowly, morn especially in the "Bad Lands." To run a road through these land is an undertak ing of the greatest magnitude, perhaps, is the annals of railroads in this er any other country. From our present camp you can obtain one of the finest and most pictur esque views of nature's handiwork. On all sides you see tbe lands," much famed "bad with their high promontories, deep ravines, and timbered canyons her« and there deep ruts, cut into their mighty banks, from incessant rains, gives them the appearance of divisioned passages to a mighty Rome. As the last rays of the sno fade away in the far western horizon, yoa are in an enchanted land, a land of beauty, loveliness, and health, a land where the zephers fan the brow like unto the touch of a mother's hand. Traly, if all earth was as tbis, we would live in a mighty Paradise. Captain Comba, of the 9th Infantry, has relieved Captain Baker, of the 6th. Colonel Merrill arrived in camp this afternoon, being on an inspection tour. Weather delightful. HARRY ROVER. The season of the reformed Presby terian syond at Pittsburg last week was characterized by a good deal of muscular Christianity, and the police had to be called in to give unction to the prayers of the ngUtious which didn't seem to aval' much. Nothing is so much out of place at a conference of' devout believers as a slung-shot and brass knuckles, and it is hard to fix the mind in a reverential mood when a person is obliged to keep an eye peeled for an inkstand or a paper weight. What i* wanted in this country is more money for foreign missionaries to teach Christianity to the darkened heath en. If the darkened heathen were only christainized it is believed they would be a good deal better men, in a fight, they are now.—Peek'* Sun.
