" The Strawberry Festival. The strawberry festival, given last ven v ing by the ladies of the Catholic church, in s the dining-room of the new hotel, was a e grand success. The room was tastefully decorated and the tables were hardly nu merous enough to accommodate the peo ple present, the attendance being so large. The main feature of the festival was the dancing, in which old and young joined, notwithstanding the extreme heat, and seenled to enjoy it, too. The tables were all presided over by ladies who had. the knack of making you invest your spare change in what they had to dispose of whether you wanted to or not. And when the managers commenced rallling off the ] different articles that had been put up dur ing the evening there was great excite nment and much merriment as the result of each decision was announced. The scar'f for the most popular young man was won by Mr. John J. Ken nedy. A very handsome music box was won by iMr. Patrick Murphy, and the pig by Missa Viola Savage. The chair for the most popular ybung lady was awarded to Miss Nellie Kelly. A handsome cake con taining a solid gold ring was won by Mr. Jones, and Mr. Thos. F. Morgan pur chased a cake. The strawberries and ice a cream were excellent and some of the ta blcs that had these luxuries for sale must h have taken in as high as a hundled dollars. The ladies who had the matter in charge certainly earned the success that crowned their efforts. It was a youth of modoet purse. Said soft unto a maid, 'Which had you rather tackle next. Ice cream or lemonade?" Across tho maideu's rosy cheek Fast flits a winning smile, 'I'il order some of both," she said Heaven help the young man's pile. KI LIST OF LETTERS. a- .

M. A. FLANAGAN, e Postmaster. 1st National Blank Statement, We publish in this issue the statement of . the ist National Bank of Fort Benton, at the close of business on July 1, 1882. As usual the report is very favorable to the bank and its managers. The business has increased greatly over last year, and the increase from month to month during the present year has been very rapid, showing that the bank's prosperity is keeping pace with the growth and business of the town. The very excellent management of Mr. R. A. Luke, cashier, has had much to do with the bank's prosperity and the unusual contldence that it now enjoys. Tnere is certainly not a more solid and reputable banking institution in the coun- tr try than the 1st National Bank of Benton. Especial attention is invited to the increase ri of loans, discounts, etc., which make a bi most excellent showing over last year. A Good Plan. A petition for the changing of the road L to the mouth of the Mariat so that the T!e ton bottom is avoided, is being circulated for signatures. The road supervisor says that the proposed road can be put in good. condition at much less cost than the old road can be fixed for. The proposed road E will keep along the bench from the top of the hill below town, thus avoiding the steep pull up from the Teton, which in wet and slippery weather is impassible for heavy teams; and as a matter of fact trains have been detained at this hill for three days during wet weather, being unable to pull one wagon up the hill. It will also shorten - lte distance to nine miles to the mouth of T. the MIarias. The proposed road has been viewed by gentlemen who at the time recommended that it be established, and we hope that the County Commissioners will order that it be put through. - tV The Fort MIarcleod Gazette.
