ir ular wirh all persons with whom he has
I business or social relations, and is rapidly
t coming to the front as one of the merchant
princes of the Northwest. Mr. W. D.
s- Weatherwax, the junior member of the
a firm, is .lso a shrewd business man
,r and deservedly popular with everyone.
g Mr. Weatherwax was a snuccessful mer:

a his long practical experience and able man
5agement. No business firth in Montana

If the Union are more worthy to rival lhe
mercantile positiona once held by Stewart
rand Astor.
n Mr. W. HI. Todd is at the head of a Ben
v ton branch of the greet grocery house of
e Murphy, Neel & Co., but Mr. Todd is so
c identified with the interest of Benton that
s io one seems to remoeniber that he is not
full proprietor of the establishment which
has become such a flourishing institution
undler his able management. It is now
one of the permanent. institutions of Ben
ion and is enjoying a profitable wholesale
and retail trade. Mr. Todd is also largely
-engaged in forwarding and freighting,
priiicipally with the Coulson Line of
steamers, and is the owner of somie of the
most vanluable real estate in town. Other
interests have also comrnandecd a share, of
his attention, and altogether Benton has no
firmer friend d aid advocate than Mr. Todd
has proved himself to be sice becoming a
permanent resident of the River Metrop
Another leading grocery house of Mon
tana, also has a branch establishment at
Benton under the management of Mr.
Heitman. Kleinsehmidt & Bro. do an im
ltlense business in groceries. They have
branch establishments in all the principal
towins of Monlltanla, :nid at teir h eatdqllaters
.in 1 elena they probablyh sell more goods at I
retail thain any other house West of the
Rocky Mounltains. They also do a large c
wholesale buIlln lles:, andl indeed lmay be
p1roperly classed among the heaviest
grocery merchants of the United Stttes.
One of the most encouraging signs off :
the progress made in Benton within the Ii
past few years is the establishment of new I
business Houses dealing only in one arti- I
cle of goods, or one special line of mer- (
chandise. Formely the stores advertised full t
lines of general mer,'anudice, whlich comi -
prised everything, from . wVatch-spring to t
a bull train: but drug, clothing, hardware,
noelity alnd other stoles have opelnied out
and divided utip the trade. Among the t
t'rst to mnate this new departure we-,r i
Mhes-rs. liirshberg & Nathnm, a large ~how t
York Clothintig House, devoted eklusi t- it
to the nmI:iunfieture and sale of clothing. a
They have only been established a little hi
over one year at Benton, but have ti
already built ip a flourishing a
business, with the best of prospects for an s
immense increase of trade during the pres- e
ent year. The firm is well and pIo, ' ly it
known in New York City, having a large
thetory and :aldes-rooms at No. 43 harvard
street. Mr Hirtshiirg is an old time Moll- I
tanian and well posted in all the requir-I h
mnents of business. 3Mr. Nathanl is a d
New Yorker, and only camne to Mon- F
tina last year, but in all thlatt
plertains to lhe clothing business, he is
thoroughly andi practically educate I. A-4
the establishment t at Benton of a hio -se ide
voted exclusively to one particular line of I1
business ws:a regarded is a ventlre of
doubtful suocc,. we have watched thei
I proi''-ss of _(Messrs tlirsbilterg and Nathan i
with peculiar interest, and while ! f
admitting that their success is al
most entirely dsle to good matiage-I
merit and busintess tact, we Iblieve tl
the real stecret of their prosperity lies tl
in the almost unlimitedl commercial re- i
i-orces of thits section of Ionltana-ml re- s
Hources of whiCch even o;/r best informed'i
business men;e have but slight concption. /,
While the above comprise :ll the leadin1
wholesale and retail houses of Benton
there are l:iny othier prosperoIus firm
Sidoinug profitable retail trade, and at
every year enlarging and extending thei
bunsiness. Mri. M. . Flanagan is runnint
Sthe leadiilg drug store of Benton, and lhal
I an establishmlnt lthat would dlo credit 1A
a much larger . town than Belton. II
lhas a line stock of drugs, ehemi
cals, paints,. oils, varnishes, glass
toilet articles, notions, confectionery, etc
The store is fitted uc: in a most attractive
manner, and contains a marble, silver
mounted, soda fountain--te oly olyl one, wi
believe, in the Tenitory. Mr. Flanagan ii
also our very eici ent and plpular Post
master and has saiisfactoriy discharge~
the dntiei of that position for a number o
years past.
The above is a icvnparatively new institu
tion, opened in the early part of last ye.:"',
and has filled al imuch needed requirement.
Mr. Crane has a fine stock of toys, notions,
confectionery and fruit, land deals largely
in books ani d periodicals. We believe the
proprietor of this establishment has no rea
son to complain of the trade of Benton, but,
on the contrary is enjoying a full share o01
patronage, which brings him a handsome
income anllually.
