A number of shells were fired from a twenty pound Parrot gun, a three pound charge of powder being used. The first experiment was successful, the shell exploding on the opposite bluff ten seconds after leaving the gun. In the second and third experi ments the shells used were defective, ro tating from end lo end instead of on their smaller axis, and failed to explod, the fourth striking the water and extinguish ing the fuse. In tire fifth trial tlio gun was aimed into the mud; the shell exploding sent up n column of mud one hundred feet in the air. The hole mnde by this shell was eight feet in diameter and five feet deep. In the sixth trial the shell was load ed witli common powder, the other condi tions being the same as the fifth experi ment. The concussion, however, was much lighter, the hole being two and one half feet in diameter and but one foot deep. The experiments were regarded ns highly successful as demonstrating tiie possibility of firing charges of nitro glycerine in the ordinary shells The Western Militia.

I think that the road is getting along at the rate of about one hundred miles per month. For the next hundred miles it is possible that they ma}* make five miles per day. It is aj)out five hundred miles from Buford to Great Falls, and this will bring the road to that place by the middle of November, which will be progress almost unparalleled in the history of railroad building." "From Helena to Great Falls the grad ling is almost done. It will probably take I sixty days lo complete the piling and a j little rock work near the Falls, but if net - - j essary the road could he completed within I two weeks. So when the road reaches I Great Falls-it will be in Helena also." j "Of course the road between here and j Helena cannot be completed this fall j The grading (o Wickes will be done this i fall however, and the track will probably he laid yet this season between these two points."

The tunnel is pushed forward about live feet every day. The rock keeps getting harder, and I think they will get out of the soft streak entiicly this week.
